Happy [?] Friday the 13th…

November 13, 2009

So it’s the 3rd Friday the 13th of 2009.

According to Wikipedia: Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on Friday, which suspicion holds to be a day of good or bad luck. In the Gregorian Calendar this day occurs at least once, but at most three times a year….In 2009 this applies to the months of February, March and November.

February 13, 2009 – I was single (still am) I’d say that’s unlucky the day before Vday…

March 13, 2009 – Not my Birthday, Whatsoever.

And then there’s today November 13, 2009. I haven’t moved from my desk for fear of anything bad happening…

Donald Dossey, the founder of the Street Management Center and Phobia Institute told National Geographic”It’s been estimated that [U.S] $800 or $900 million is lost in business on this day because people will not fly or do business they would normally do,” (Per ABCNEWS.COM).

The next year to have three Friday the 13th dates will be 2012 (again per Wikipedia).

OH, that’s right 2012, you know the year the WORLD is supposed to end.
who knows they would be right ‘we were warned’.

And don’t say that I’m a weenie because I fear Friday the 13th. Henry Ford, FDR, and Napoleon all feared it.

But on the flip side…what’s really wrong with the number 13? It’s a baker’s dozen, and who would say no to an extra choc. chip cookie or frosted cupcake…HELLOOOO!

So on that note, I think I’ll have myself a baker’s dozen of bud lights tonight and all will be well.

Overheard at the office….

November 10, 2009

So you’ve seen the blog ‘Overheard in New York’ and they list ridiculous/funny things that are overheard in NY.

Well, I hate New York, and there are ‘inside’ jokes that I don’t quite (or will ever) appreciate. So I’ve decided to blog the ridiculousness I hear on a daily or weekly basis. Today, I was innocently walking by a row of cubes, and just stumbled on inspiration.

A super kind way to say: ‘You Look Like Sh*t’

Guy: I did not say you look like crap.
Girl #1: Of course you did!
Girl#2: No, you totally did.
Guy: All I said was ‘glasses today, huh?’, you can take what you want from that.

Some kids just don’t know how to play nice…

Elizabeth Lambert, you’re just a poor sport.

Sure I’m a collegiate has been. And yes, I’m sure I’ve taken a few cheap shots in the past. But someone, somewhere along the way somoeone should have taught Elizabeth Lambert to play nice:

Deep thoughts on working from home…

November 6, 2009

“Working from Home”, for most people, this means you’re taking your kid to the doctor, or you’re waiting for the cable guy to come, but actually being productive.

But for me, it typically means one of the following:

Never leaving my pj’s and watching crimeshows all the live-long-day. Or in t he summer, maybe going to the beach. Perhaps driving up to Vermont for a long weekend…or digging out my car from a ginormous snow-storm.
Today, it meant waking up, watching Ri-Ri on the today show and then heading to the South Shore Plaza to spend the $100 gift card I got ~ for being such a hard working girl! 😉
My trip to the SSP really got me thinking – what the eff are all these people doing bee-bopping around the mall on a work day?

Are they jobless? and if they are jobless, where are they getting the money to be shopping? I mean, I understand the annoying women I passed sitting at au bon pain holding up the ridiculous baby clothes they bought (with their hard-working hubbies ca$h) and the older women well, they’re obvi retired.

But the rest of the people there boggle my mind… I mean, the school-age children always throw me for a loop because it’s toads not vacation.

And then, I jump on the highway to head home, and what are all these cars doingg? Where are they going and/or coming from? It’s the same thing I think when I hit traffic late at night on say a Wednesday. Why isn’t the whole East coast a sleep?

Anway, time for my mid-day nap, after that if you need me, I’ll be doing squats in my living room to stretch out my new jeans (WAIS…?)…

AOL Radio, I got the powahh…

October 26, 2009

I am was a pandora.com listener. I have my ‘HSM’ and ‘Glee Cast’ stations that I can’t get enough of. I’d heard my good friend Shark gripe about the crazy rule they have, and hadn’t yet experienced for myself. This lovely Monday morning I get this message:

I’ve whaaat? and you want me to whaaat? Say Whaaaaat? Monthly listening limit,?PAY $0.99?

I think not Pandora.com, I think not.

I’ve already put up with the addition of their annoying advertisements. Like the one for Where the Wild Things Are that plays about every 4 songs…if you think that stupid song “L-O-V-E it’s a mystery oooooh…” is a song that DOESN’T get stuck in your head just like “This is the song that doesn’t end it just goes on and on my friend,” you’re totally wrong (see here if you don’t know what I’m talking about).

Regardless, I had to find a way to listen to some jams (fo free, fo sho) this morning. So I ventured to AOL Radio to see what was up…

Immediately I went to the Pop section. ’90’s Pop seemed like it would be right up my alley. I threw my earphones in to rock out. After listening to Robyn: ‘Do You Know What it Takes?’, K-Ci & JoJo: ‘All My Life’, and Venga Boys: ‘Boom Boom Boom Boom!’ I heard a song that took me wayyyy back. The song was like my anthem in 1990..

That’s right, it’s Snap: ‘The Power’.



Now I bet you’re thinking, ‘But Popprincess you’re so young how could a song from 1990 be your jam?’

Well back in 1990 when i was 4, Moose convinced me to cross the monkey bars and promised she would catch me if I fe.l. I started to fall and Moose ran for the hills. I broke my arm and was put in a cast. This must have sparked some sort of anger in a young pprincess…

When Moose and Beef picked on me (because I was a scrawny 4 year old). I would hit them with my cast and the shout from the top of our stair case ‘I GOT THE POWAHHHH [OWAH OWAH]’. That’s right, it would echo down the staircase.

So thank you AOL radio, for bringing me back to my roots.
