Guilty Confession

I'm totally addicted to the new NKOTB album. I'm a rational person, I know it's not great music, not well-written, and not inspired. In fact, from every angle I can see that it clearly all around sucks. It's just so damn catchy. It was manageable 2 weeks ago when I only had the MP3s on my desktop at work. I would listen to the mindless noise while writing SAS code. Eventually that wasn't enough. I was craving it at home. I copied the files to a jump drive and transferred them to my home desktop. Well last week that wasn't good enough either. I found myself seriously jonesing for some Summertime while driving home from work. I burned the MP3s to a CD. Now I have it at work, at home, and in the car. The soundtrack for my drive into work has gone from Mike & Mike and Rene Montagne to the 5 hardest working kids in show business. How sad is that?

Maybe when the Yankees stop sucking ass I'll be able to bring myself to tune the dial back to 1360.

I think about you in the summertime....

Memo Monday

I stole this idea from another blogger that I "know" through the Nest - Baby Rabies. The idea is to write a short open letter every week - funny, sarcastic, loving, whatever. I'm not so creative that I could come up with that idea on my own, but I'll unashamedly steal it from her and start my own series over here.

Without further delay, I present the first installment of Memo Monday.

The Countdown is On!

Looks like I'll be finished EPing and ready to destroy my PISA no later than June 27th. I'm actually thinking it will be a little bit earlier than that, but that's the absolute latest.

I think I'm going to have a party for myself. It also happens to be the date of the NKOTB show! What better way to celebrate than a night out with the Nesties?

I'm compiling a list of ways to dispose of the pump, so let me know if you have any suggestions to add to the list.

Nifty little blog I just found - MamaMade...for your little one! - full of very cute eco-friendly craft creations for you to drool over.

In time for Earth Day she's holding a drawing for a sandwich bag I've got my eye on. If I don't win one, I'll try making one myself. I'll build up my crafty confidence, then curse and throw things in frustration when I remember that I'm really not crafty at all. After that I'll photograph the monstrosity and post the disastrous results over here for your amusement. Finally, I'll just buy one from her, which I should probably do in the first place.

New Ben & Jerry's Flavors!

I spied an unfamiliar looking pint at the store last week - Triple Caramel Chunk - Caramel Ice Cream with a Swirl of Caramel & Fudge Covered Caramel Chunks. Oh. My. God. Where was this during my 40 weeks of misery?! I don't even feel guilty about eating it, since I'm actually below my pre-pregnancy weight at this point. I'm seeing numbers on the scale that I haven't seen since 2001!

I went to the Ben & Jerry's site to get the scoop, and learned that there are a few other newbies in addition to the caramel heaven on Earth; Chocolate Macadamia, Mission to Marzipan, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, and Orange & Cream. I can pretty much guarantee that I won't feel the need to try Mission to Marzipan, and Peanut Butter Cookie Dough doesn't elicit much more than an "eh" feeling, but I'm dying to get my hands on Orange & Cream. I freaking LOVE creamsicles. Unfortunately, I've checked out four local groceries and haven't found it yet. There's no flavor locator option, either. I'm going to be hella-pissed if it's a "scoop shop only" variety.

Baseball Post (a few days late)

If I had actually written this post on Monday, opening day of the 2009 baseball season, it would have been full of optimism and excitement - after all, the Yankees added CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett to their starting rotation, and Wang was back in good health and ready to take his place as the #2 starter. Four days and two ugly losses later, and I'm already cursing at the TV. Figures that the first two games I'd be able to watch on my own TV were just horrid. Even Baby C was upset at the opening day fiasco.

Mooooom, why is Sabathia sucking sooooo bad?

Oh well. It also figures that the game they actually won with dignity was a day game, me being stuck at work watching the gameday dots move around the bases.

Regardless, it should be a fun and exciting season! At least as of this moment we're tied with that other team from the northeast, at one win and two losses. Even better, the boys in blue are headed out to Kansas City today for a three game series. Hopefully we'll be over .500 by the time we're down in Tampa.

On a sad note, today we're all Angels fans. Their rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed in a hit-and-run accident on Wednesday night, just hours after pitching 6 shutout innings in his season debut. He was only 22. Such a tragedy definitely puts things in perspective.

Ferber Update

This has been a great week! He woke up around 4:00 on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, but kind of whined to himself and then went back to sleep. Yesterday and today he didn't wake up until we went in to get him ready to go. Yay!

Yesterday I visited a friend of mine to see her 6-week-old baby boy. I was shocked to find that I could barely picture Baby C being that tiny. I know they always say it, but it goes by so freaking fast!

I'm going on my first overnight adventure without the Charlies tonight - going to see NKOTB in Columbus!
