Just to clarify, do you think your typical 50 something year old woman would have to get over a yuck factor to date someone that looked like...
Harrison Ford?
Al Pacino?
James Brolin?
Jimmy Cann?
Sam Elliot?
Chuck Norris?
I know you didn't ask me, but, in order...

Yes, yes, no, yes, yes. The only one on the list I would even consider is James Brolin, and that's just "consider." <shrug>

Or recovering.

How was everyone's NYE? Mine was pretty lame but I actually liked it that way. Not really looking forward to 2013, thirteen is an unlucky number anyway. Wish we could just skip over this year because 2014 is an election year and I'm optimistic we'll retake not only the Senate, but the state of Illinois, and we can start moving in the right direction again.

so i thought NYE couldn't get much lamer than the great puke fest of 2008/09, but i found a new low... nothing like having a house full of people and no one to hang with... hubby, bro & neighbor were "being boys" and SIL, neighbor & kids were "being Polish" - the only words i understood were people's names... this is teh same crowd that i left in 08/09, the boys got hammered and all 3 of them got sick all over the place (thus the title puke fest).

thougth it might be a little better (a) at my house and (b) with the kids hanging around, but no. so i went off on my own around 8... i had a quiet evening unto myself.

My NYE was nice. I went to a friend's house and it was a small group, we had sparklers and party hats and wine and food. Peaceful compared to all the drama I've had lately.

Today has been very quiet. I cooked my grandmother's stuffed pepper recipe all by myself for the first time ever and it turned out good.

I just took a 2-hour nap and am debating if I want to walk down the street to the sports bar for tonight's bowl game or not.

I had good intentions of going to hear a friend's band, but I fell asleep at 9:30 and when I got up it was next year.

However, Husband, hearing my computer lamenst has offered me one of his towers. He upgraded his office systems and this was now extra.
It is a Vostro which I have never heard of but as long as it works , teh price is right. Spent today transferring things. All that is left is my itunes account which I think I will just download from my iPod. Husband wants me to move itunes to teh cloud and do it that way but I get confused easily.

(Northwestern won and NIU is playing. Life is good)

Happy New Year all! Had a quiet night in with J since he's sick. Drank wine, ate pizza, and watched Death Proof and this old HBO doc about a dad that gives his teenage kids extacy. Weird stuff.

Happy New Year everybody!

We had an intersting NYE celebration. I made the flourless choc. tort and then fell asleep before removing it from the pan. Big mistake; almost didn't get it out of the pan and it was all crumbly and lumpy. Good thing the glaze is supposed to be pourable! It tasted great, however, so who cares what it looks like, right?

The dinner was composed of a bunch of stuff I only sorta liked including a very bony red snapper, so I ended up just eating a lot of homemade mac&cheese and drinking too much wine. So I had just settled in to enjoy my buzz and wait for midnight with my eldest curled up next to me. Suddenly she sits up with *that* look and starts retching, so I run with her off to the bathroom where she proceedes to puke her guts up. And she continued to do that for the next 24 hours. Poor thing.

So my plans for New Year's Day were totally blown (which is OK, I was just planning on cleaning the apt) and I snugged with a sick girl all day. She was even too sick to watch TV!

PEllen, sorry you missed your friend at The Knot. We passed by there on our way home (around 12:45ish) and there were still peeps there. That's the in-law's favorite spot, btw. We've celebrated many occasions there.

So, i think i just did something i shouldn't have.... M is odd in that he looooves cleaning; give him a swiffer and he's in 7th heaven (oh, to be a toddler again). he just knocked over his bowl of dry cheerios, and stood back and looked at the mess for a bit. i had the brilliant (?) idea of getting hte vacuum/carpet sweeper to let/make him clean up his mess...

good thing the battery died, or i'd have a new set of nicks on the furniture from where he runs into the dining room table and chairs.

how much money should i put down that he starts dumping his snacks on purpose just so that he can clean?!?
