Ronrey.... So Ronrey :-(

This officially sucks. I tried to convince him not to go. I even offered to take care of him for the rest of my life if he just quit his job and stayed home. I said I could get a second job at Tasty Freeze and we could live on ice cream and love. He didn’t buy it. (I think because there is no Tasty Freeze in Seattle…)

A few moments ago I heard a horn honk; it was John Roderick in a big old van sitting outside to take my husband away. And like that he was gone. Whisked away to the airport and then on to Paris.

Listen: God or whoever is running this show, you keep him safe, you make this time go quickly and you bring him home to me happy and healthy! I’ve got my eye on you!

Now Darian goes next to visit grandpa for a few weeks. As I type this I am reconsidering letting her go. I don’t think I have ever been in my apartment alone for very long in my whole life! It is too quiet!

The Anti Betty Crocker

OMG This photo made me laugh so hard! I look so crazy in it!

Conversations on and on and on and on and on and on....

I had the worst dream last night. I dreamt that I woke up and found out that one of my friends was dead. Now having lived through this reality one too many times it scared the crap out of me. It was so real. I got the call and another of my friends was just totally loosing it, so I was trying to help them deal and keep it together myself. We were going through their stuff helping sort things out and get clothes for the funeral. It was all so surreal. I could not shake it all day today. It is still just sitting there like a brick on my chest. I will get over it. Not going to say which friend as to not freak anyone out.

The Posies shoot went really really well. We had a lot of fun. After hearing that song about 300 times I probably don’t want to hear it again for a while, but that is just how it goes. The guys were pros and I feel much pain for the small group of guys who had to roll the stage back and forth like 300 times as well. Poor guys.

My friend Craig took some photos here is the link to that: PHOTOS

I think my daughter has a teeny crush on Matt. She spent the whole day looking all doe eyed at him. It was really cute. Every time I turned around she was following him around. He had a dog and he draws comic books really great. He might as well have been made of Anime in her book! It would not be a bad thing if that is the type of guy she likes when she grows up though because Matt is a really, really good person, so that is good. Thank goodness she isn’t gravitating towards the thug types.

Jon and I have been trying to deal with the fact he is leaving tomorrow.  We are flip flopping between sadness and denial.

Doing my little "I told you so" dance

I just read that Fat Actress was canceled. Haha! I am so happy the good people at Showtime also recognized what a big stinker that series was! That show is so bad it is embarrassing. I felt uncomfortable watching it in the same way I feel uncomfortable watching Tom Cruise doing an interview these days. You just get all squirmy and embarrassed for the people.

OK, time to get dressed for the Posie video! I took the day off work today too! Woohooo!

Man alive, what an odd couple of days.

So we rented Prozac Nation last eve. I was really looking forward to it but it really fell short for me. I don't think Christina Ricci is a very good actress. I used to think she was until I saw her try to step out of her pouty box and show a range of emotion. She did depressed and solemn pretty well, but she didn't do much else. This character was supposed to be experiencing all of the high ups and major downs of depression, CR is more of a blank slate. (And I am not just talking about her five head!)

I almost forgot to mention that Darian and I had a girls night a few nights back and we went to see Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants movie. I was expecting not to like it, but that was fine, she really wanted to see it and it is part of being a parent, sitting through movies you would not ordinarily sit though. It ended up making us both cry.
Jon said it made him cry too, when he heard we were going to see that movie!! (What a comedian.)
I thought it was a very sweet mother daughter flick. I would not suggest it to anyone else though. At least it was better than that Yaya Sisterhood crap of a movie a few years back!

Posies video shoot tomorrow. I am trying to think of the perfect Rock-n-Roll outfit to wear. I was told I could not wear any dark colors because the band are wearing dark colors. So that pretty much rules out over 90% of my wardrobe! I'm trying out a new wine colored sweater today. Who knows.. I'll probably do some major clothes sorting this evening.

There is a light and it never goes out

Listening to The Smiths this morning.
Almost forgot how much I love this band!

Take me out tonight
Where there’s music and there’s people
And they’re young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people and i
Want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh, please don’t drop me home
Because it’s not my home, it’s their
Home, and I’m welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought oh god, my chance has come at last
(but then a strange fear gripped me and i
Just couldn’t ask)

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one, da ...
Oh, I haven’t got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out.....

The party was perfect!

We had loads of yummy food stuff and we had many wonderful friends show up. It was supposed to rain, but the day stayed absolutely sunny and beautiful so we got to partake in the fire outside on the patio later which was perfect. Licia has such a great house! She has done so much work on it and it gets even more beautiful every time we go over there.

Photos were taken so I will post them when I get them back.

I felt like there were times when I talked so much I was going to loose my voice, but that is just because I have not been out socializing in a while. There were a few people that I don’t feel like I got to chat with as much as I would have liked to but luckily I will be seeing them tonight at the Canterbury for the going away party. So chatting will happen.

The surprise of the night: Jon gave me a big old box to open in front of everyone. It was super light so I thought it might be lingerie or something. I opened it and it had rose petals and a heart shaped candy box in it. I squeal, “I got chocolate” he says "Open it", so I open the heart box and it contains a little pouch sitting on pretty paper. I open the little pouch and it has a beautiful tennis bracelet that matches my engagement ring and the anniversary band he gave me at Christmas! It is a beautiful white gold band with diamonds and Tanzanite stones in it. (My rings also have diamond and Tanzanite.) We love Tanzanite; it is a precious stone that is actually getting to the point where jewelers will tell you that it will probably be mined out completely in our lifetime. It just doesn’t get the press that diamonds get so they are not as expensive but they are technically more precious.

I was so delighted! What a sweet sweet man!

Here is a photo of it:

Here is the ring I got for Christmas that it goes with:
