Happy belated New Year all! I have been remiss in posting this year because I don't really have anything delightfully funny or interesting to say...yet. However, I do have lots of random grumblings to share, and who am I not to complain?!

  • 200: So, at Starbucks today the guy behind me ordered his drink and then specified that it needed to be at least 200 degrees. How f*ing pretentious is that? First, how do you even know it's less than 200 degrees when you get the drink? Secondly, how are you even drinking that coffee at specified temperature without burning your tongue? I swear, if I worked at Starbucks I would have totally heated it to 197 just to mess with him!
  • Kids + Coffee: While I'm talking about coffee, what's up with folks buying their kids coffee? Does anyone else think that's odd? I mean, does your 6 year old really need his java fix? Doesn't caffeine stunt your growth anyway, or is that just another lie my parents used to tell me?

On a positive note, I had a great Christmas. My parents LOVED the Wii, and it was so much fun playing it with them. They are still playing daily! My mom is now a "professional" bowler, and apparently my dad is pissed that she's beating him (since he actually used to be on a league). It was great to spend time with the family, and eat so much food! My pants are barely fitting, as scheduled. In fact, today I split the inner lining in my pants - not a good sign. Luckily, my colon cleanse arrived today. Perfect timing. I'm so excited about my 3-month cleanse. I'm sure my bum and my husband will be less excited after a few weeks. I'll keep you posted. Aren't you lucky!

Your "colon cleanse arrived"—WTF? Is it a mail-order, DIY kit or something?

That guy at Starbucks needs to have his 200-degree coffee spilled all over him, then see if he likes it quite so hot. What a freak.

Finally! I was beginning to get worried about you!! Why are you doing a colon cleanse? I remember when I had a colonoscopy a few years ago and had to drink the most horrific stuff- I am scarred for life.

Yeah, I wanna know more about this cleanse and how it goes...I love your double entendre (I have no idea if that's how you spell that and hopefully I'm using it right...blame it on too much time w/ Tara if I'm not) "lax"!
