The Sassy Sundries: My Week in Review

Well, this week featured resolution for me. I’m afraid that I did not pay attention to much else (including all of your blogs—part of this is due to a major crackdown on web usage at work, but mostly it’s because I’ve been in my own head—I’ll be back soon).

Here are the week’s Sassy Sundries, my weekly tally of things political, personal, and nonsensical:

McOver. I’m disappointed that things didn’t work out with us, but I’m relieved to finally have things resolved. At least I’m not seething with anger over how the breakup took place (McAsshole doesn’t hold a candle to McI in the class department). I’m glad that I had the time that I did with McI, and I learned a lot about what I want and what I don’t want in a relationship. My friends and blogpals have supported me, and my therapist is worth her weight in gold. I have no idea how to rate this

I had a fantastic day at the beach with my friend Smokestack. We’ve both been going through some things the last couple of years, and it’s been a while since we had an all-fun-all-the-time day together. I think we both needed it. We’re still laughing over THAT’S NOT HEALTHY! Plus Ten

While writing about habits that freak me out, I remembered the best billboard ever. A couple of years ago, my sister and I were driving into NYC with friends to go to an art opening (she had a piece displayed). All of the sudden we looked up and say a billboard with this on it:

We couldn’t stop laughing for days. Maybe I’m feeling punchy, but this thing still cracks me up. I need to laugh, so I’m giving it a Plus Five

The War’s still going on, and W’s still an idiot. How can he stand there and express confidence in the Iraqi government? How can he say that the safety of Americans traveling on the roads isn’t worth five cents a gallon? Minus Five

Barry Bonds breaks* Hank Aaron’s homerun record. Baseball wishes he’d just go away. I don’t like A-Rod at all, but I have to admit that I’m looking forward to his breaking Bonds’s record. Just so long as it isn’t against the Red Sox. Minus Two

I’m going to have brunch with the Hangar Queen on Sunday! Look for Fluff pictures soon. Plus Ten

Total Plus: 25
Total Minus: 2

TOTAL FOR THE WEEK: +23 (not counting McOver)

Last Week’s Total: -9

Just so you know.

And I'd rate the McOver thing evens, Sassy. You had a good time. You learned stuff. You're still you.

Have a great time with the Hangar Queen. Can't wait to see the photos and the return of Fluff!

Sassy, I would rate McOver as a win. You said it yourself you learned what you do and don't want from a relationship. Thats a HUGE plus! I had a similar weekend with Krissy(missing B-suit top mentioned on yesterday's blog)last weekend. It is good for the soul to spend time with people who "get" you.

I'm so glad I found your blog. Thanks for being such a great distraction for me now.

You may not be able to rate the thing with McI for a long time.

The doll is just precious--given how much I despise that word, that should tell you what I really think about the cupie.

Dolls are evil. *shudder*
Have fun with Devin at brunch and enjoy your weekend.

That billboard is fabulous!
Cracks my ass up.
And I'm glad to hear you had a good week :>

I am fucking terrified of dolls. I don't even like to take a bath if Liv's barbie dolls are sitting perched on the edge of the tub. They can just go get their jollies somewhere else...


And Dubya? I think my favorite line from his news bit was "Well, i'm not an economist..."

No shit?

That billboard freaks me out. :)

I had a doll similar to that as a child - in fact, I still have her. She is made of some hard plastic material and has a weird expression on her face. I really loved her but my nephews and nieces all shout,"H-e-e-re's , Chucky!" every time I get her out. No respect, the younger generation!

Did you see the scary dolls from my holidays? Scared the willies out of me....

Rich said...

Is smoke stack by any chance a chain smoker? I love that name it makes me laugh everytime you mention it.

You got to meet Hangar Queen! I'm sooooo jealous. So, is she as wonderful as I imagine?
