Peanut butter creme of the devil

Some evil person put a box of Do-si-dos on my desk.
They are calling to me....

I am in love

With these boots!! OMG...I want them. I need them. I HAVE to have them.

Monday, December 26, 2005


I feel like ass. 'Nuff said. I have the worst cold ever. I can't stop sneezing & I've gone through and entire box of Kleenex already. Sucks. What a way to start my month of school-less bliss.
My plans of running to the mall to catch the post-holiday sales is shot. :(
Any plans I had of meeting friends for drinks tonight is shot. :(
Any plans I had of cleaning out my closet to put away all my new goodies is shot. :(
Shopping for my New Year's party? Shot. :(
Maybe tomorrow after work I'll hit up the mall for this skirt I wanted in the Loft & these cute white boots in Aldo. We'll see how I feel. You know I'm sick when I don't even want to go shopping!! Sigh...
So I'm spending my day watching HGTV & surfing the net. I'm bored out of my skull, but I don't have the energy to do much more than type. I slept until 12:30 and I feel like I need a nap already.
Off I go.

Merry Christmas!!

Here it is - 4:30 am on Christmas morning & I can't sleep. Have a bitch of a cold and the dude upstairs has decided to blast HBO all night long, neither of which make for ideal sleeping conditions. Sigh. So instead, I've decided to do some late night internet shopping. LOL

Merry Christmas to everyone!! Here's hoping you get all you've wished for & more.

I know I did. ;-)

2 down....1 to go

Okay, I take my last final of the semester tonight. Yay! Then I'm done...finally.

Had my office holiday party on tuesday. Brought Corey as my date. :) Got to meet the insanity I deal with on a daily basis. Love them. Stacy was my secret santa and gave me cozy sleepy pants from Old Navy, Spinal Tap on DVD and a laser paddle (don't ask). Drank lots o'beer and ate lots o'food. Food was amazing, but there was just too much of it (if there is such a thing). Took a lot home.
Photos are here for your viewing pleasure.
The party was over and before I knew it, it was time to say gooodbye to Corey. Won't see him for Christmas since he'll be with his family in WV. I will miss him but, then again, it'll be next Friday before I know it and we'll be headed into the city for dinner & the Met.
Last night I went to Friday's to see Roseann & Dan. Gave Dan his bottle o'Jager as a thank you/xmas present for always taking care of me when I'm there. Gave Roseann a gift card to Vicky's . She is insane - thats all I have to say. Gave me a Coach bag & matching wallet AND a Bath & Body Works set in Warm Vanilla Sugar. Love it all. Mwah!
So, today I'm off from work. Using up my last personal day of the year. Yay!! Don't have to work until Tuesday. So, I've been loafing on the couch and now I'm off to Anthropologie to do some damage. Teehehehehehe....

Finally feeling Christmas-y

Only 9 shopping days left, and I'm finally getting into the Christmas spirit. I thought my trip into NYC with Corey to see Santa & the tree did it, but I quickly fell out of it. Maybe it was the stress of classes & work. Now, my apartment is decorated, my candies made and 90% of my presents are wrapped. I finally feel like its Christmas time! Yay!!
However, I still have to deal with the stress of school for at least another week. :( Finals start on Monday. Something about complement proteins and microbial diseases that really puts a damper on my Christmas cheer.
I'm just looking forward to the end of this semester and the month off that follows. Free time? Whats that? I haven't had any of that in a LONG time and I can't wait.
So, now, when someone says: "Hey Mags! Wanna get dinner on *insert random weekday here*?" I can say: "ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY!!" least for a month.
Also means hours will be kicked up a notch at work which means that the cash flow will be slightly better. Just too bad that couldn't happen BEFORE the holidays, huh? But atleast that'll give me more time during the day to do what I have to so I'm not scrambling to get it all done by 4:30.
Looking forward to the weekend, too. Crop tonight with Kelly, Christmas party in Brooklyn on Saturday with Corey as well as our Christmas present exchange. I hope he likes what I got him. :)
My office holiday party is also next week. Bringing Corey as my date (of course). Can't wait for the girls to meet him. I know they'll love him.

You men have no idea what we're dealing with down there. Teeth placement and jaw stress and suction and gag reflex and all the while bobbing up and down - moaning and trying to breathe through our noses. Easy? Honey, they don't call it a job for nothin'! - Samantha Jones, Sex & the City

Memoirs on the big screen

One of my favorite books of all time comes to the big screen today. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden . I can't wait. I absolutely LOVE this book. It follows the life of a young Japanese girl sold by her family to a okiya in 1930's Kyoto's Gion district.

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. I couldn't put it down and I've read it 1.5 times more. :) Now...if Lauren would just give me my copy back.

What cracks me up about this movie is the controversy that is surrounding it. Japan's in an uproar because they're afraid the partial Chinese cast will not be able to accurately portray their culture. The fact that Geisha were not, indeed, prostitutes. They were highly educated and cultured women who worked simply as company & entertainment for wealthy men. They were schooled in the art of seduction through music, dance, conversation. They never exchanged money for sex. At least the majority them didn't.

China's in a tizzy because they're still not over WWII. All the 'savagery & inhumanity' as my mother says. Apparently, they're pretty upset as one of their most beloved stars, Zhang Ziyi, is in Memoirs...

As for me...I could care less. I look forward to seeing this story brought to life. From what I've seen in clips & previews, Rob Marshall has done a pretty good job. I truly looks like a beautiful movie.

As for the Chinese actors playing Japanese characters? What does it matter? A Russian Natalie Wood played a Puerto Rican in Westside Story and you didn't hear them bitching, now did you? Heck...probably more than half of America can't tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese. I know I can't sometimes. Can you?

Whaddya think?

Oh....and just fer fun:

Friday, December 02, 2005


Yay!!! Its FINALLY here!!

Thursday, December 01, 2005

I have nothing interesting to say....

But I feel like I have to post so here we go.
Pretty much been work, school, repeat.
Looking forward to tonight. Taking Roseannadana out for her birthday to our usual haunt - the Junkyard to see BLASTED.
Looking forward to the weekend. Going to see the Rockefeller tree & Santa at Macy's. yay! My FAVORITE Christmas tradition. :)
Okay...well....I guess thats all I have to say for now.

Monday, November 28, 2005

Okay....I can talk about it now....

Oy. My reunion. What a night.
The day started off calmly enough.
Pretty much just laid around the house, did some laundry, blah, blah, blah.
Then I got ready for the festivities.
Kelly & Ryan picked me up around 6:15.
Got to the Holidome to set things up. The event started at 8, but a couple of us got there early to set up & stuff. Erica & Andrea came, too. Andrea looks fantastic!!
Of course....I start with the Jack & Diet Coke almost immediately. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?
Maggie + Jack = Oy
So, by the time people started showing up, I was nursing my third drink. And by nursing, I mean gulping, and by third, I mean fourth.....or was it fifth?
So, at this point, I'm pretty loosened up and just making the rounds.
Got to see some people I haven't seen in YEARS - it was quite cool.
Got to see the guy who nicknamed me that HORRID name in elementary school - and even got to tell his wife about it. LOL She wasn't too happy with him!! It was all in good fun.
Got to see my high school crush.....What WAS I THINKING?
I have to say the best thing about the whole night was that I just didn't give a rat's ass.
I walked around and talked to EVERYONE. Whether or not you talked to me in high school, you were talking to me that night - some people never change, though.
I danced my ass off with Bethany, Andrea, Erica & Kelly.
I think I probably smoked a pack of cigarettes with Mike, Max, Chris, Marika, Brian & Erin.
I actually had a rocking good time. I just wish I could remember more of it. :-p
Thank you to Kelly & Ryan for getting me home safely (and making sure I took the right coat).
Woke up the next morning with a WICKED hangover, a cut on my forehead (?), a coors light label stuck to my foot, 2 fun vmails & 1 text from Corey & a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach.
It took two calls & an AIM conversation with Kelly to make me feel better. I also had a minor break down with my Mommy. But, I'm all good now. Promise.
The afternoon of retail therapy with Mom helped, too. :-)
Now, I just have to make it thru the week.......have a feeling its gonna be a long one. Sigh.

Class of '95

Oh my. What a reunion it was.
I'm not going to give all the gory details here.
Its just too embarrassing to relive right now.
I acted like an ass.
I'm not too happy with myself right now.
I want to die.

Say Cheese!

Okay, so I finally sat down at my scanner and scanned in some pics I had.

1. My B-day @ Culture Club (courtesy of Steve & his 3 disposable cameras!)

2. Brother Jimmy's for Tech-UVA Game (basically just pics of the boys taking shots)

3. Demons at T-Bones

4. More Halloween Pics

5. Randomness from last night

So tonight is my reunion. Found out there's a couple people I was looking forward to seeing that aren't going. Losers.
I have to get motivated.
I have to go get a pedi, do laundry and wrap the chocolate favors for tonight and I just have no energy to get my ass off the couch and do any of it.
I just want to veg and play on the 'puter. Sigh...
Last night was fun though. Went shopping with Elena at SuperWalmart and then got some sushi with Elena & Stacy. After a couple of beers with Bobbi Jo @ Bleacher's, Elena & I head over to Friday's to hang out with Roseann, Jack & Dan. It was much fun until I got sick from the Jack Strips. WICKED heart burn. WICKED WICKED heart burn with chest pain and OMG I need to leave now...... I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was exhausted and had a traumatic day since I cut 5 inches off my hair. Holy ef its short.
But anyways, I'm rambling and thats never good for me. Gets me in trouble sometimes.

Thursday, November 24, 2005

forgot this little tidbit. WTF?!?!
"Your honor - causing my client to live without her hot iron, Great Lash Mascara in Blackest-Black & Covergirl lip gloss would surely drive her insane!"
Just goes to show you - a little cleavage (& a hospital ID) can get you outta anything!

Happy Turkey Day!

Another Thanksgiving has come & gone...and its almost time for Christmas! YAY!
Went to Doug's for dinner again this year. Corey's in West Virginia with his fam & hunting Bambi. Dinner was good - Katie was there with her boyfriend Joe who is a sweetheart and so good with Kassidy.

Pictures are here.

Tomorrow I'm chopping all my hair off. Yes, my friends - its ALL going. I can't wait. I know my hair isn't long to begin with, but I just can't take it anymore. I am NOT meant to have hair past my shoulders so I'm going with something somewhere between a chin length bob & a pixie. At least this time I won't be insulted & called a member of Oasis (fdb).

After my mini-makeover, I'm heading to Super Wal-Mart with Elena. Yes...I know....I'm effing crazy. Super WalMart on BLACK FRIDAY. Oy...We're going about 4ish, so hopefully the mad rush will be SOMEWHAT over with, but I'm not holding my breath. After shopping, its off for Japanese food & drinks @ Bleachers.

Saturday is my reunion. MY TEN YEAR HIGH SCHOOL REUNION. Wow...I feel old.
I'm going stag cuz my man is away but, so is Kelly so its all good. I'm actually looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to seeing some people I grew up with & some friends I met in high school. Namely: Eric K., Chris, Mike, Brian, Eric B.(grew up with them)
Erica, Andrea, Beth, Jimmy (my hs crush-don't worry ;) he's married!), Mike, Steve (met them in hs or jr. high).

Then, of course, there are the random people I couldn't stand in hs or those who made fun of me for being heavy. Mwahahahahaha.....SUCK IT.

All in all, it should be an interesting time. At least there's an open bar-even if its only for an hour. Doesn't take much to get me smashed, right?

Okay...I'm off to read or sleep or do something. Maybe I should study...........

When Maggie met...

I almost thought it was actually possible for a man & woman to be friends - then I remembered When Harry Met Sally... Its actually making me take a step back and examine my relationships with the few male friends I have (none of which I have ANY desire to have sex with - the thought makes me sick).

Harry: No Man can be friends with a woman he finds attractive, he always wants to have sex with her.

Sally: So you are saying a man CAN be friends with a woman he finds unattractive.

Harry: No, you pretty much want to have sex with them too.

(Thanks to Ordinary Joe for having this dialogue posted on his blog.)

Good advice

Got this from my friend LaTasha:

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stay awake just to watch you sleep. Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, Wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you. Wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, ".....that's her."

As I wipe the drool from my face...

Thanks to Bethany and Jaime for showing me that Coach's new holiday line is online.
But I'll settle for:
The Holiday Patchwork Duffle
The Ski Pocket Hip Bag
The Madison Napa Watch
Mink Coinpurse (but, don't tell Elena)

Oh there's SO much more.......

Sleepy Maggie Sue

Very sleepy day.
Got outta school early last nite cuz I had my microbio midterm. Not so bad. Was quite happy the essay was on horizontal transfer (since I knew that one) and not the lytic/lysogenic cycles of viral replication (since I don't really know that one). But anyways....
Got home some time after 7 and enjoyed a relaxing evening.
Read The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis in 2 hours. Read it in elementary school and I wanted to re-read it before the movie comes out next month (can't wait). I was able to read it in two hours cuz 1. its a short book and 2. I didn't bother trying to figure out the symbolism like I usually do. There is a book that uncovers the allegories from the book and I may have to buy it and read it. With all this science in my head I'm just too lazy to try and figure out what Aslan represents.
So after that I started jazzing up my profile. Added some pics, changed some fonts, yadda, yadda, yadda. Before I knew it, it was after 12:30 am. Of course, stubborn as I am, I kept at it until after 1 when I finally decided to hit the sack. Only to find that my neighbor has added a TV to his bedroom and apparently likes to watch HBO with the volume WAY up. So I slept on the couch.
So now: I'm tired. I'm cranky. My back hurts. I don't want to be at work, but I don't want to be at my apartment.
Is it friday yet?

BTW....for those of you who haven't discovered it already: I linked up Corey's blog on the right.

Truthfully by Lisa Loeb

This isn't what I like to call flattery,
but I know that I believe that I've found what's true,
that I've found what's you.

Truthfully I , I'm finding finally.
Truthfully you , you helped me find at last.
Truthfully we are finding out what's true.
And truthfully I am finding out what's you.

Surprise, cause I was flying the plane.
Surprise, cause now I'm smiling again.
Surprise, cause you showed up with your parachute.
Surprise, I'm kind of happy you showed up.

Truthfully I , I'm finding finally.
Truthfully you , you helped me find at last.
Truthfully we are finding out what's true.
And truthfully I am finding out what's you.

Truthfully, I really can't explain, I'm floating, I'm smiling again.
Truthfully, I can't ignore you, cause I've been waiting for you.
Truthfully, I'm not desperate, I haven't changed my mind since we first met,
but the last thing that I want to do is to tell you that I'm right for you.

Truthfully I, I'm finding finally.
Truthfully you ,you helped me find at last.
Truthfully we are finding out what's true.
And truthfully I am finding out what's you.

I'm finding finally.
Truthfully, I'm finding out what's you.
I'm smiling again.

What is happening to rock in NY?

First the CBGB threat and now THIS ? WTF?
Seems like just a short time ago, I had commented on the fact that K-Rock had recently changed their format to include more classic rock. Awesome. Now I can hear Pink Floyd and Zeppelin in the same hour as Incubus and Green Day. Finally, a station that understands how my szichophrenic mind works (now, if they'd throw in some Britney, I'd be all good LOL). So, for the past few months, I've been rocking out the the nice new format - loving every second of it - only to find out that they're changing to ALL TALK in January!?!?!?! WTF!?!?!?!?
Howard's leaving, fine (good riddance). David Lee Roth is taking his place, great. Not that I ever listened to them in the morning anyways (I'm an AM girl in AM). But all talk? C'mon guys! Now, with the exception of the mediocre Q104.3, which plays only classic rock, NY has no rock station, whatsoever. I mean, sure I can deal with the classic rock, but NO mainstream rock? Again....WTF? How is it possible in an area as culturally diverse as ours that most of our radio stations only play rap/hip hop or pop? NO mainstream/modern rock and NO country. I can hear Celia Cruz or 50Cent anytime I want - but not Incubus or Alan Jackson.
As much as the thought of PAYING for radio kills me inside, I think I might have to switch to
Sirius based on their abundance of rock channels alone.

I'm a Hallo-winner!

Went to T-Bones on Saturday for their annual Halloween party. BTL was playing, so I decided to invite Corey to check it out. Kelly & Ryan came for a bit. It was a good time. Dressed up as a witch & won first place in the costume contest. :) Yay me! $50!!
Check out the pics here

Ghost pun'kins

While in Cooperstown this weekend, Corey & I stumbled across some interesting albino squash:
We were quite intrigued by these pasty pun'kins. They were NOT painted. Their rind was white. Hmmmm.... What an interesting jack-o-lantern these pun'kins would make!
Then, this morning, Corey sends me this link to an article on CNN:

Ghost Pun'kins

It seems these devlish fruits (yus, indeed they are fruits) are quite popular and chic. En vogue, even.

So this weekend, I'm on the hunt for achromatic pun'kins. Because, as we all know, if there is anything Maggie strives to be, its en vogue.

Beer, BBQ, Cookies & Applesauce

Quite a weekend. Corey & I left for Oneonta on Friday night and made pretty good time. Once we got there, we almost immediately started our weekend of partying like college kids (again) by checking out some local bars. Saturday it was on to the Baseball HOF & the Ommegang Brewery. After a quick nap we ate at Brooks BBQ (dee-lish) & then vegged out in our hotel room for the rest of the night. Sunday we headed over to the Albany area (after stopping in Schenevus for breakfast & cookies) to visit my Gram's gravesite as well as drop by Corey's friend's (Dave & LeighAnn) place. We ended up at an apple-sauce making party where we made home-made applesauce, drank beer & watched football. It was the perfect way to spend a cool fall evening. was a perfect way to spend a fall weekend.

Thursday, October 20, 2005

Is it Friday yet?

So excited for the weekend. Heading to the Oneonta with Corey. Think I'm definitely in store for a good time. Baseball Hall of Fame, the Ommegang Brewery and just hanging out in a cool college town. I'm so effing excited I can't sit still. It'll be here & over before I know it, though. Just like last weekend.

Move over Sean Paul...there's a new reggae star in town and he's Hasidic?!?!?!

Matisyahu is a Hasidic jew who raps & pulls of a mean beatbox. Checked out some of his tunes and its actually good stuff. Songs have spiritual lyrics but aren't so blatant that you feel like you're being preached to.
This guy wasn't born into a Hasidic family, though. Check out his bio & it tells you how he rediscovered his faith after a trip to Israel. Quite interesting, actually. Studied at the New School which is also kinda neat, I thought.

Here's a snippit from one song called King Without a Crown:

You're all that I have and you're all that I need
Each and every day I pray to get to know you please
I want to be close to you, yes I'm so hungry
You're like water for my soul when it gets thirsty
Without you there's no me
You're the air that I breathe
Sometimes the world is dark and I just can't see
With these, demons surround all around to bring me down to negativity
But I believe, yes I believe, I said I believe
I'll stand on my own two feet
Won't be brought down on one knee
Fight with all of my might and get these demons to flee
Hashem's rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe
Out of darkness comes light, twilight unto the heights

Check it's got a nice beat to it. Definitely two thumbs up in my book.

I'm currently reading this fabulous book, Sex, Drugs & Cocoa Puffs , by Chuck Klosterman, a writer for Spin magazine. As soon as I finished the first chapter, I knew I had fallen in love. Well, maybe not LOVE but a very strong case of LIKE. The first chapter goes into his view on what he calls 'fake love' and how every woman loves John Cusack. He goes on to say that its not John Cusack the person that we supposedly love, its Lloyd Dobler - his character from the fabulous movied Say Anything.... Can't ya just see him standing there with the boom box blaring Peter Gabriel?
So is this true? Does every woman want a Lloyd Dobler? Do they want what Klosterman calls an "optimistic, charmingly loquacious teenager"? Yes and no. But thats another story for another time.
Klosterman writes: "Coldplay songs deliver an amorphous, irrefutable interpretation of how being in love is supposed to feel, and people find themselves wanting that feeling for real. They want men to adore them like Lloyd Dobler would, and they want women to think like Aimee Mann, and they expect all their arguments to sould like Sam Malone and Diane Chambers. They think everything will work out perfectly in the end (just like it did for Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones and Nick Hornby's Rob Fleming), and they don't stop believing, becuase Journey's Steve Perry insists that we should never do that. In the nineteenth century, teenagers merely aspired to have a marriage that would be better than that of their parents; personally, I would never be satisfied unless my marriage was as good as Cliff and Clair Huxtable's."
Do I want a love like a Coldplay song? To be honest, I've never gotten a love vibe from anything by Coldplay. If anything, it makes me a little depressed - is that what love is supposed to feel like? If so, I'll have no part in that, thank you very much. Love shouldn't require 20 mgs of Prozac and a tab of Xanax which is exactly what I need after I listen to Coldplay. Maybe I'm interpreting their music wrong - maybe I just don't listen as intently to the words as I should. But, I just don't care. Its the whole melody. (Ugh...Yellow just came on the radio) Unfortunately, some of the music by one of the best bands of all time, REM, makes me feel the same way. (They're playing on the radio now)

Never let my head hit the bed without your hand behind it

Had a girlie night last night with Roseann & Nicole. Girle = cosmos & manhating......err.....I mean we had a pillow fight in our underwear....yeah.....thats it. ;-)
So anyways, we got to talking about men & what flips our switches. We ended up each compiling a list on a cocktail napkin (scans to come). Now, we avoided the usual suspects, which we decided that every woman pretty much likes - candlelight, a roaring fire, Marvin Gaye, yadda, yadda, yadda. So my list basically was made up of three songs: Your Body is a Wonderland by John Mayer, Blower's Daughter by Damien Rice and Crush by DMB (the long 8 minute version, though). I got made fun of because of this. I was the only one that had songs on her list.
Then of course there was the superficial stuff like baseball caps & hockey jerseys. Which was pretty much ALL Nicole's list was. ;-) Then physical stuff like touching my face when we kiss or kissing my neck when he stands behind me, blah, blah, blah.
So anyway....the whole point of this discussion has now been forgotten. After sharing our lists with eachother we decided to call it a night and I head home and crashed.
So today, I'm doing some retail/cinema therapy with my mom and then tomorrow I'm off to ride the roller coasters at 6 Flags! YAY!!!!!!!!

TG for personal days

Wow....thats all I have to say about U2. Wow.
What an unbelievable concert. It was AMAZING.
I have to admit, I started out not as jazzed as I should've been to go to see them. I was tired and I've been eating hershey kisses & peanut butter the last few days, so I've been kinda bitchy. To compound my frustrations, I hit massive traffic delays. The thruways is NEVER backed up Westchester bound at 5 on a Monday. Where were you people going??!?!
When I got into the city, though, my attitude changed.
Met the girls - Elena, Kat & Marty - at Molly Wee's (thinking this may be my and Elena's newest favorite place). They had already started pregaming without me. Effing traffic. So I had lots to catch up on. I did get an inflatable mini hockey stick, though! Sweet! I decided it was my cell phone and after some beers & a yummy shot (made up on the spot special for us) I decided to USE my hockey stick as a cell phone and call Bono for Elena. It was a wierd situation......sigh.
So, after Wee's, we hauled ass to MSG and drank some more beers and ate some salty ass popcorn.
Keane went on promptly at 8 and were actually pretty good. Elena & I really weren't that interested and were more into talking on our cell phones and trying to find Kat & Marty on the other side of the arena. Waving of my 'cell phone' helped. LOL
After Keane and a bizillion trips to pee, U2 finally came on. They opened with Vertigo and it was amazing. I knew the second I heard the music start and heard Bono start the countdown I was in for a great show. I was right. The energy in MSG was insane.
One really cool thing they did was ask everyone to show their cell phones and it made the arena look like it was filled with stars - it was actually beautiful.
We met up with Kat & Marty outside Nathan's and after a short discussion of the show and some minor bitching about our feet, we headed back to my car.
While we're walking, I see a limo driver standing next to his car with a sign "Kristen Seyfried." I say to the driver, kidding around of course, "I wish I was Kristen!!" The driver looked at me, blatantly eye fucked me and said: "So do I!" GASP!! Thats SO not what I meant buddy!! I felt violated. ROFL
So we got back to the car, paid a FORTUNE to park and headed back to Rockland.
Every bar in Rockland apparantly closes early on Monday nights so we headed home. :( no postgame for us.
So, in short (I know, too late) it was a great night!!
Now, I just wish it was Friday.............sigh. I'll settle for wednesday, though. ;-)

Monday, October 10, 2005


Tonight is the U2 concert at MSG with Elena, Katrina & Marty.
So in honor of our FAB-U-LOUS evening ahead, I figured I'd update my blog with a picture of Elena's future fake husband. LOL My arm hurts already.....

Thought I had a rage brewing....

Hung out most of yesterday with Kelly. It was much fun. Found out I think Alison Krauss eats thru my soul. I honestly don't remember saying that. What a see-you-next-tuesday I was!!
Went out after leaving Kelly's Elena, Bobbi-Jo & Brian to celebrate Bobbi's birthday. Went to our usual haunt, Bleacher's, and basically just hung out and danced to our usual jukebox tunes. Anyways....when I got home I was lying in bed thinking of all these things that were stewing in my neocortex (gimme a break - I had a neuro test last week). As I stared at my blank ceiling, I started to write my blog entry in my head. Okay...normally a good idea. Actually something I do quite often. Only one problem - I forgot the WHOLE thing. Don't even have the SLIGHTEST idea what I was SO pissed about. Sigh....blame it on Amstel & Johnny Walsh.
One good thing did happen last night. Not saying the whole night was a bust, cuz it wasn't, but this one good thing was FABULOUS. Johhny Walsh has agreed to have Elena & I as guest bartenders for a night and all proceeds to go to the American Cancer Society. AWESOME. KICK ASS. Now, we just have to pick a date.
So, Monday is the U2 concert. I THINK I'm prepared to have my arm ripped off by Elena as she screams and jumps and cries when her future fake hubby comes on stage. LOL Pregaming at Molly Wee's and postgaming in Rockland somewhere - cuz face it, its cheaper.
Tuesday is loser day for me. :( I took the day off to recover from Monday.
Wednesday is Corey's second show at the Magnet. Kelly & Ryan are coming with. Thats a good thing.
So, since I forgot what on EARTH I was so angry about, I shall end this pointless rambling.
But, I do have to say this:
You should have to take a breathilizer before you can text message. I'm sorry if I bombarded you with senseless ramblings of me getting my ass kicked at Big Buck Hunter 2 and listening to Toby Keith & whatnot.
Oh yeah...and this: For the first time EVER in my life - I went over my minutes on my cell phone! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!?!?!? When I brought this up to my darling mother she politely told me that it is because the thing is permenantly attached to my ear and has been for quite a while now. Hmmm...interesting. Thinking I really need to reconsider that

Back from the south

Just got back from my bro's in NoCarolina. It was a l----------ong trip, but fun just the same.
Got pink Chuck Taylors & I love them. :)
Off from work tomorrow (TG - I'm exhausted) so I can do my normal weekend errands in one day & then head to school. Laundry, shopping, oil change....other mundane tasks to which I must attend.

Git out your finger paints!

Think I'll wear this if I'm invited to another Hokie game (in maroon & orange, of course).


Tuesday, September 20, 2005

You put your left arm in...

Quite the weekend at my first Virginia Tech football game - it was unreal. So much more than I expected, actually. Had a great time! Tailgated & just generally hung out the whole weekend. Got to meet a couple of Corey's friends & fellow tailgaters.
Thank you, Corey - I had a great time. (wildcat noise)
And thank you to Dwight & Charity for their hospitality & yummy breakfast.
So...of course, Mesclun was there. Even though he was called a porpoise & a porcupine. Here he is a Lane Stadium - living it up Hokie style:

Uh-oh spaghetti-o's!

So this was the hell on the TZ bridge yesterday afternoon. Thank goodness we have a radio on at work, otherwise I would've been stuck in this hell for probably 3 hours. Granted, I had to leave work earlier than normal (not so much a problem, I know) and skip dinner because it took me 45 minutes longer to get to Mercy than it normally does. Oh well. Besides, 3 hours of micro had to be better than 3 hours of sitting on the thruway, right?

Monday, September 12, 2005

There's 20 of 'em

Had a great time at the Brooklyn Brewfest on Saturday. Got to try some great local brews & I even ate a hot dog!! YIKES! It was so effing yummy. I even got to become a Beer Goddess - I have the panties to prove it! ;)
Mesclun was there - pics to come soon. By soon I mean as soon as I get my lazy ass to scan them in. Didn't use the digital.
After the Brewfest it was on to Republic for some dinner.
After dinner it was on to The Magnet Theater for some hilarious improv.
After laughing our asses off, it was on to Black Finn for an Avon Breast Cancer Walk Fundraiser.
It was a long, but amazing day. I had a great time.
So now, this weekend I'm off to Blacksburg, Virginia for my very first Hokie game. Yay!! My first football game!!

Count down to a new liver


And because its Friday, it means its almost Saturday which means its almost time for the BrewFest at Brooklyn Brewery !!

Feeling scholarly

So my beloved vacay is over and its back to work & school for me.
I was quite busy at work today - full of disability forms & letters waiting for me to fill out & type. It seems I'm only one of two people in the office who understand how to use Microsoft Word.

So after work it was on to school. I had Advanced Human Physiology for Biomedical Sciences. Sounds like fun, huh?
One great thing is I have one of my favorite professors for the class, which just makes it better. So 3 hours flew by - yeah, right.
Tomorrow night I have micro, which should be interesting.

Then its almost the weekend!! YAY!!!!

All in all, Maggie is a happy girl.

Tuesday is chooseday

Would you want to:

be able to control the weather OR read people's minds?
Control the weather - I don't think I'd want to know what people thought all the time. Though it could come in handy with guys sometimes. Why is your kind so hard to read?!?!?!

lose ALL your hair OR all your finger and toe nails?
After seeing Stacy's toes I'm going to have to go with the hair thing. Though i had a dream the other night my toenails fell off. Hmmm...wonder what that means?

be allergic to grass OR wheat?
Wheat without question. I love the outdoors too much. But then again...there is wheat in soy sauce so that is tougher than I thought....
No wheat....definitely wheat. Don't use that much soy, anyways. Besides, I don't need the salt. LOL

be forced to wear a clown nose and rubber boots while singing "i'm a little teapot" at superbowl half-time OR have pictures of you in the shower be shown on prime-time television?
The half-time festivities for sure. I'd rather be a ham than have my thighs, which look like hams, shown on national tv. Besides, I'm sure someone out there finds clown noses & rubber boots sexy - though I'm not sure I want to meet such a person.
BTW - I just want to send out congrats to a certain someone on their new 'status' with another certain someone. :) Here's to hoping you find all you're looking for...and more.

Ladies & Gents...Fresh from the Ren Faire...Introducing......

Mesclun the Magic Purple Platypus - Master of the Salad Toss!

I won him Saturday at the Ren Faire playing a game called Salad Toss (I know). The idea was to throw these stuffed tomatoes (yes, with an 'e') thru these cardboard cut outs of Ren inspired characters. I won and was blessed with my new buddy - Mesclun.

So look out for Mesclun - he's my new partner in crime and will accompanying me on my travels about the tri-state area (and beyond).

Coming up on Mesclun's calendar of events: the Brooklyn Brewfest, my first football game at Virginia Tech, & my bro's in North Carolina.

But for now - here are some things I learned at the Ren Faire this year:

1. Yards were shorter in midieval times.
2. Somebody likes chainmail...
3. Crushed velvet purple pants are hot
4. I throw like a girl
5. People still play Dungeons & Dragons (or at least want to)
6. Everything is better with powdered sugar.
7. How to speak like a West Virginian - its 'baw-tle' not 'boat-tle'

Oh and I forgot to mention.

I FINALLY got to see Team America: World Police & Old School. Both very, very funny. Me likey.
Two more to check off my list...
Still haven't see the Godfather, though. LOL

So is my last day of vacay. :( Back to the grind tomorrow. Work and then class starts. yay.

Anatomically correct rap

Just remembered something funny from Tuesday night.

Driving home with Elena and listening to the YingYang Twins song "Badd" on the radio (I know I don't like rap, but it has a killer beat). The conversation went like this:

Me: Did he just say vagina?
Elena: Yup
Me: hmm..
Elena: licking a vagina, I believe.
Me: interesting... it was funny to me.

Its in the stars

Here is my September horoscope from Glamour (my bible):

The past comes back to haunt - or more tlikely help - you this month. (oh great!)
An ex may plead for another chance; (too little, too late)
an old friend could finally explain why she dropped out of site. (again...too little, too late)
And, single Lionesses, remember that guy you dated who was perfect but told you the "timing was off"? Well, not it's on. Ring him up! ( thanks, I'm all set and for a third time: too little, too late.)

Also - welcome my two nieces Bec & Kay to my blog world.

Schrodinger's Cat Tshirt

How badly do I NEED these t-shirts??

Buy them for me here
Or this one? I soooo NEED this one!! Feeds into my hot science geek chick thing I'm going for. "Why yes, I am a biochemist." ROFL Is it working? Do I look like a hot science geek chick?

If you don't get it clicky. (WARNING: Don't click if the words quantum mechanics scare you)

BTW - I KNOW I have to change my age in my profile. Thank you to everyone who reminded me that I'm now older!! But not as old as know who you are. ;-)

I am officially on VACAY!!

WOOHOOO!! No WORK no SCHOOL for a week & a half!! YAY!
Took my chem final last night-yuck. How can I forget how to do a condensation reaction between amino acids when I've done it a MILLION times before. GOSH! IDIOT!!!
After school I dined on some delicious shrimps (yes...shrimps) at the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate the end of the semester.
Then it was home to C-R-A-S-H.
I worked today and now I'm on VACAY! Let the PARTY begin!!
Not going to Bar Harbor :( Damned tuition - I hate you.
So, instead I'm filling my week with cleaning, shopping & happy hour with Elena. :)
Tonite is Rhode's with Kelly, Ryan, Marc, Jen & her two pals Gina & Phan. We're checking out a reggae band. Should be a good time and in true Rhode's tradition - like a mini-high school reunion.
Wearing my good butt jeans incase Jimmy's there. ;-) ...not

We partied like it was 1999...

Oh my goodness - what a birthday! WOOHOOO!!

Thursday, my actual bday, I arrived at work to find balloons (from Debbie & Lauren), cake (from Debbie) & presents (from Jaime) on my desk! Yay!! My coworkers rock! About half-way thru my day I got a beautiful basket of flowers from Kris, Meena, Gemma & Dawn. Then...about 3 o'clock, I got a dozen red roses...from Tom. They are beautiful. Thank you.

My phone & email were blowing up with all the Happy Birthday wishes. It made me a very happy girl.

That night, after I took my Chem lab practical, I met up with the girls at Bleachers for some fun. It ended up being Me, Theresa, Lauren, Jaime, Stacy, Elena & Jen. Bobbi-Jo and her new lover stopped by for a bit. We met some new people and some old friends of Stacy's. Chris stopped by for a bit and we all hung out and played pool and I drank my face off and I even got to sit on a Harley. The sexy bartender hooked us up all night. Sweet. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!! After, Jen drove me home. Thank you Jen! You ROCK!

The next day I woke up with a raging headache & reeking of SoCo. I got up and showered and got dressed as best I could and Mom took me to lunch and to see March of the Penguins. It was adorable & yes, I cried my eyes out! Then it was home to prepare for the night ahead.

I met up with Elena & Stacy at Elena's apartment. We then headed over to Nanuet to pick up Loveleen before hitting Fiesta Mexico for some din din. Yummmy.....vegetarian platter filled my belly (along with a REALLY strong Bicardi & diet coke). Then we made the trek into Manhattan to the Culture Club.

After parking we walked a couple of blocks (me in 3 1/2 inch heels, mind you) to meet Steve outside the club. He was equipped with three disposable cameras to document the evening. We got inside and the partying began!! Culture Club was AMAZING. Wicked awesome 80's club!! Sherrol & her pal Lisa joined us shortly after and we partied it up.

Steve gave me my bday present - a gift certificate to Sephora - and informed me the other half was on its way. A Napoleon bobble-head for my car and the Vote For Pedro tshirt. :) Such a sweetie.

So we danced the night away to fabulous 80's tunes and drank some crazy shots like the Ghostbusters & the Rubiks Cube. I had an amazing drink called the Ronald Raegan. So yummy. Then it was after 2:30 and we decided to head home. Steve walked us safely to our car while taking video of us. We were ROCK STARS!!

I got home after 4 and collapsed.

Saturday I met Steve in Brooklyn for some sushi and some snuggles before I went home and got dinner at Dave & Buster's. Remind me...Haagan Daaz = Evil

Sunday I spent relaxing before grabbing some food with Corey at Outback.

So thats exciting bday weekend!! It really was a blast!!

Nothing much going on this week...

Catching Treble's softball game tomorrow night - if I feel okay. Woke up this morning with a raging sinus headache. Blaaaahhhh......

Friday is the AIDS fundraiser in the city and Saturday is the dinner party at Rob's.

Thats all for now...

Its almost my birthday!!!

Hey all! What a weekend! And not necessarily in a good way.
Started out Friday night - I drove out to Long Island to have coffee with Jay. We ended up going to shoot pool and then I drove home exhausted. :-p

Saturday, I pretty much hung around the house - did some laundry & what not. Then I went shoe shopping and ended up with three really pretty pairs of shoes. :) Then I head into the city to see Steve. Thats when all hell broke loose!

I met him at Darryl's studio on 26th. We went to Monster Sushi for dinner. It was quite yummy. Then it was off to the movies to see Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. After the movie, we walked back to Darryl's to get my car. Um...where's my car? Not there. I freaked! Who the hell would steal my car?!?!? WHAT THE F&*%?!?!?!? So at this point, I'm hysterical - pacing up and down 26th street and crying. I called 911 and they told me I had to call 311. 311 told me they couldn't help me because I don't have a plate number because I still have temporary tags. So I called 911 and asked them to please send an officer over. They did and the cops arrived almost a half hour later.

Turns out, I parked in a 'Night Restriction' Zone. What the...?!?!? Never heard of it. Didn't even see the sign. car was towed to the impound lot on the west side. So Steve and I took a cab and were finally able to get my car out. $185 of Steve's money later. Thank you again - you are the best. I mean it.

So we finally made it back to Brooklyn and fell fast asleep after our stressful night.

We slept late Sunday morning and got up and I took Steve to breakfast. It was the least I could do. I drove him to his studio and headed home.

When I got home, I was still so tired and I ended up sleeping most of the day.

Then I went to see Must Love Dogs with the Quinn-meister and invited him to my impromptu birthday festivities on Thursday at Johnny Walsh's. We'll see if he shows. ;-P

Well..thats all for now. I'm tired. Just had an algebra test and I have a chem take home to do now.

RJ = Devil

Men are pigs. What pisses me off is that they don't know that they've done something wrong like hurt one of my very good friends. I wish I could tell this douche-bag exactly how I feel and beat him about the head and shoulders, but extenuating circumstances prevent that. So instead, I have to let loose on my blog and call you a FOCKER!!!

Ps...only 10 days til Montauk!!! WOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Monday, May 23, 2005

Hike On!!!

Arizona was amazing! Hiking the Grand Canyon was amazing!!
So much to say, I just don't have the energy right now to write it all.
I will update asap with pictures!!
