While I was Sleeping... munchkins were chatting.

I'm thinking they could take their show on the road. 
Pretty stinkin' funny.
Or am I biased?

A Wednesday Quiz

When you are diagnosed with cancer, the words "Bucket List" crop up in your head a lot.  Now that I have had my warning shot, I think I may actually do some of the things on my list.  You?

You Should Write a Book

You may not feel like you could write a book, but you actually have a lot to say. Just let it flow!
You already live in your own little world. You may as well introduce everyone else to it.

It's likely that you feel like you have a lot of baggage you'd like to unload, and writing can be cathartic.
By writing a book, you would feel a huge sense of accomplishment. And you'd have a legacy to leave behind.

Aquarius Horoscope
For The Week Starting March 26, 2012

This can be a very creative week for you and you could invent something to make it easier for you at the work place work or around your house. You have already built a good solid foundation for yourself and now it is working in your favor. Do not adjust or change your tactics because the path you are now on will not work in your favor. Stick with what you are doing. This is a good time to seek property for a later purchase.

And how is yours?

Aquarius Horoscope

For The Week Starting March 19, 2012

This week you must be super careful even while you are having a grand time at a social gathering. If you drink, be sure not to drive or you will be caught. Someone close to you is deceiving you about money and other things. This type of fraud can cause you big problems down the line. Do not change your strategy at this point in time, or you go down the wrong road. Keep to the path to which you are already committed.

Do you think I could just call in sick to the calendar?  I hope none of this is true.  And I hope this week goes by fast.  Please tell me yours is better....

  • I am tired of talking about the weather, and in other news, I had a dream that I was having a romance with a NYC weatherman.  It was quite nice.
  • Local tv commercials annoy me.
  • I have never been on Pinterest.
  • My knees are killing me.  Killing me.  
  • I am prone to hyperbole at times.
  • It would be more than awesome to be on a beach right about now.  And I don't mean The Long Island Sound.  I mean a beach with palm trees.
I feel all better now.  Have anything to purge?

Yup.  So many possibilities; so little time.
You Are a Dreamer

You are primarily concerned with possibilities. You tend to be a fanciful person.
All of the world's opportunities sometimes overwhelm you.

You are obsessed with ideas and tend to be a big thinker. Theories interest you greatly.
You crave intellectual stimulation. You are drawn to a philosophical way of life.

More role reversal.  And in a little trip down memory lane, I like to remember that one of her first sentences went something like this: "Mommy, if I'm wearin' my clothes, why do you choose them?"
But, still...what am I supposed to wear today??

Pretty All True...

Because I couldn't find any Aquarius horoscopes I liked today:

You Should Be A Gemini

What's good about you: witty and energetic, you're simply the most fun to be around

What's bad about you: you're flighty - losing interest in people and projects quickly

In love: you enjoy the "honeymoon phase," but after that it's hard for you to stick around

In friendship, you're: likely to have many groups of friends, with many different interests

Your ideal job: mime, guru, or cartoonist

Your sense of fashion: casual and simple

You like to pig out on: fast food, especially burritos

Mime?  Mime?? If it weren't for those ideal job choices, I would think this is eerily spot-on.  And now, I have to get dressed and go to work. Work that involves no miming, guruing or cartooning.

How about you?  What Sign Should You Be?
