I need a sippy cup. I had the privilege of having a root canal today. I keep forgetting my jowls are loose (heheh like loose bowels) and everything I drink just dribbles out of the left side of my mouth And unlike our regular dentist, this endonist did not let us run around the back office and patient rooms like screaming lunatics. Our regular Dentist lets me sit in the back, they were doing some major work on some of Honey's crowns, and I got to take pictures, film it and ask them why the letters on the gold cap were backwards. He said he puts them on backwards so when Honey looks in the mirror it spells out He-Man instead of reading Nam-Eh. Oh Ok, I get it now, good call, dentist man. Now pass me that drill will you? I gots a finger nail to fix.

Cold to feel like the arctic to thin-blooded South Floridians
Posted by Ken Kaye at 11:23 AM
Rarely will you see the National Weather Service’s graphic depiction of South Florida look so colorful – all because of the cold air settling into the region.
Light blue for a wind-chill advisory. Blue-green, showing a wind-chill watch. Lavender, depicting a gale warning. Purple, depicting a high-surf advisory. And red, for a red-flag warning of wildfire danger.
The bottom line: It’s going to be chilly around here for the next day or so, even a bit colder than the weather service first predicted.
Temperatures tonight and Thursday morning in Broward and Miami-Dade counties are to fall into the low 40s inland and the mid 40s along the coast. It should be even colder in Palm Beach County.
Mix in a 10-15 mph wind, and the wind chill, or feels-like temperature, will be 35 to 40 degrees for most of the region.
To thin-blooded South Floridians, that’s going to feel like the arctic tundra.
“It’s really going to feel really chilly compared to what we’ve had,” weather service meteorologist Dan Gregoria said, referring to the record heat earlier this week.
High temperatures on Thursday afternoon were expected to remain in the mid to upper 60s.
“By Friday, we warm back up into 70s,” Gregoria said.

It's Peep season! The original Peeps I should say. Honey brought me my first box and said enjoy just don't eat them in front of me. He thinks they are nasty, I think they are great. I like to play with them, then eat them. This year I am going to bring you the best of my peep shows, one peep at a time.
Today's Peep: The early Peep gets the worm!

Lindsay Lohan recreates Marilyn Monroe last, nude photo shoot
The Associated Press
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
6:48 PM EST, February 18, 2008
Lindsay Lohan is following in the footsteps of the most famous blond bombshell of them all -- Marilyn Monroe.
In the issue of New York magazine on sale Monday, the 21-year-old star of "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" poses nude for photographer Bert Stern in a recreation of one of Monroe's most famous photo shoots, done shortly before she died.
Stern photographed Monroe in 1962 at the Hotel Bel-Air in California, six weeks before she was found dead from an overdose of barbiturates. Those images for Vogue magazine feature Monroe in next to nothing, posing nude with some scarves and jewelry as her accessories and sipping champagne.
Stern recreated those images with Lohan this month, at the same hotel, with Lohan wearing a blond wig and not much else.
In the essay accompanying the photos, Lohan, who admitted to a serious interest in Monroe, said deciding to do the photo shoot was easy.
"I didn't have to put much thought into it. I mean, Bert Stern? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It's really an honor," she told the magazine.
Lohan described Monroe's suicide as "tragic" and said it, along with the Jan. 22 death of actor Heath Ledger from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, "are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone."
The actress, who has been in and out of rehab after two arrests last year on drunken driving and cocaine charges, said she didn't know why the industry wreaked such havoc on some stars, adding, "I sure as hell wouldn't let it happen to me."
Stern told The Associated Press that he found women like Lohan and her tabloid companions Paris Hilton and Britney Spears "interesting."
"They're girls that draw attention to their notoriety and their celebrity through their behavior," he said Monday.
He noted that Monroe and Lohan had similar problems with alcohol but added that -- in contrast to the sessions with Monroe -- there was no alcohol on the set when he photographed Lohan.
He said he thought the photo shoot would be good for the young actress, giving her the chance to portray herself as a grown-up. He also lauded her for her willingness to do it in the nude.
"I thought she was a natural, not at all squeamish," he said.
A phone message left for Lohan's publicist Leslie Sloane-Zelnik seeking comment Monday was not immediately returned.

If you read the New York Post then you have probably already heard about Paris Hilton's alleged treatment of her animals. From Page Six:
February 16, 2008 -- THE Los Angeles Dept. of Animal Services is finally
paying attention to the plight of pets who have the misfortune to be purchased
The celebutard brought the authorities down on herself when she
appeared Wednesday on Ellen DeGeneres' TV show and confessed she had 17 dogs.
The ex-con obviously didn't know it's illegal in LA to own more than three dogs
unless you're a licensed breeder.
The animal control squad paid a visit the
next day to Hilton's house in Beverly Hills, Page Six has confirmed. But when
they arrived, they found the house vacant and undergoing renovations. All the
dogs, cats, birds, ferrets and even a monkey had been placed with "handlers at a
ranch" - possibly permanently, said SPCA spokesman Jeff Blodgett, who added that
they gave Hilton a card, asking her to get in touch. (Paris has a history of
de-acquisitioning her pets).
Earlier this week, the Kris Kelly Foundation
repo'ed a cat they let Hilton adopt last year because she never returned to pick
up the feline after she had been spayed.
Hilton was also accused of neglect
in a thinly veiled blind item this week. Ted Casablanca reported on Eonline.com
about a woman who, "upon leaving her house, often locks these pups in one of her
many closets, supposedly to prevent them from making messies."
the woman "would be gone for hours, days, weeks . . . The animal's existence
would simply slip from her mind! Oh, doesn't that happen to everybody? While
cleaning the house, [her] staff have - reportedly more than once - opened a
closet to discover a tiny, dead dog."
Two years ago, Hilton's pet Kinkajou,
Baby Luv, bit the heiress, and her first chihuahua, Tinkerbell, now lives with
her mother, Kathy.
Last year, Shelby Segall, whose yard borders Hilton's,
told Page Six: "She treats her animals horribly. They are always getting out and
running around the neighborhood.
"She had a little orange kitty about a year
ago that kept getting out and we kept telling her it was outside. She didn't
seem like she cared, and then one day the cat got run over in the middle of the
street and died."
Another neighbor said, "I found two little chihuahuas of
hers running up and down the street with cars and people going up and down. I
put them in my bathroom and called Paris. Her assistant answered and said, 'You
can't drop them off! Miss Hilton isn't home!' She took three hours to come get

You are late-sleepy relaxation, the half-awake moment when you realize it's morning, but you don't have to get up, because there's no place you have to be. You are that cozy spot under the covers where everything feels temporarily perfect, even if you know you'll eventually have to wiggle out and start the day. Maybe you're the artistic type, who doesn't function well on a normal schedule. Sleep's important to you, and you like the freedom of sleeping as late as you want (especially since that is closely related to the freedom to stay up as late as you want). You like to roll out of bed, put on some comfy clothes, and get a laid back start to the day. If not everything on your list gets accomplished, no worries. Your only priority is having no priorities – you just want to take things at a slow, mellow pace.

All day I have had bits and snips of random songs and commercials playing in my head. None of it makes sense, its absurd. Just a bunch of la-di-dadie, we like to party! I wonder if there is a severe lack of oxygen in Florida today. My brain is fried. Silly is as silly does. I have half a notion to go and take pictures of the Sand Hill Cranes that have been walking across all the roadways. Oh and we are getting our very own Starbucks in our area, like 2 miles from my house. Honey just called to tell me. And I though it was going to be bank. Does this mean we are a real town now?
The Pierces: Go To Heaven.
you are absurd
you say the cutest things i've ever heard
i don't think i can take another word
or my head might explode
and i will have to go to heaven
ooh ooh ooh... (repeat oohs)

Yesterday I got the news that a friend had died. He didn't just die, he comitted suicide. Honey saw his name sign into aol IM and sent him a message only to have the response come for Honey's Doc, who is the brother of our friend. He was going through e-mails and whatnot. I guess trying to make sense of it all. Rememeber a few weeks ago I asked if they had internet in heaven, because sometimes I was tempted to write a letter to him at his old e-mail, but was afraid that his family would be reading it. I have a hand written hidden journal for this kind of thing anyways. Therapists, sponsors and rehabs all encourage letter writing. Letters that will never be sent. a healthy outlet, a place to reflect, to get angry and to see your part if any in it.
This was a friend who always appeared to have it together, then he went through a nasty divorce, hated being away from his kids and moved back from Japan where he was a professional for a major import/export manufacturer. Honey tried like hell to help him when he started drinking again and it worked for awhile, but the more slips he made the more distant he became from us. He began moving around alot. He commited his suicide in North GA, nobody really knows why of all places he was there. The one thing I will say is he kept appearances up so well, not too many people thought he of all people would do such a thing. Honey and I being a bit closer knew he was heading for trouble, then he dissappeared. We weren't shocked to hear the news, nor were we angry. It's ineveitable for people with his type of drinking will die, end up in jail or mental institutions.
I know how he must of felt, I've been there before. The saddest part is his children, twins around 11 and an older child in their teens.

I found out yesterday that I was choosen to be a photo double for a new Spike TV show filming here. I'm a little nervous about this because apparently the photo I'm doing is for an episode where one of the show's characters is looking at a lingerie catalog. And then bam -- there's me.
The shoot's tomorrow.I hope it's from this catalog (imagine photo of girls in granny nightgowns).Um, ceasing eating, immediately. Spray tan, pronto.
I told my mom about it on the phone last night but said that I was a little wary about it because it was on Spike and I thought it could be a little shady.
Mom: "Oh, I don't get Spice TV. I think you have to pay extra for that."
Me: "NO! No no no no no! Not SPICE mom, SPYYYYYKE."
Mom: "Oh! Whew."

Most of you know I work at a school for kids with severe behavioral and emotional disorders.
But I have some new readers (welcome!) and it's important to set this story up in the right context.
Last Friday, the teacher in our classroom was working with the third graders on their reading skills.
She wrote down a word on an index card and asked the students to raise their hands if they knew what the letters spelled.
Kids learn to read in stages.
The first step is learning the sounds that each letter in the alphabet makes.
Usually, new readers will sound out the first letter of a word and then say the first thing that comes to mind.
Let's say the word is APPLE.
A child will sound out the A.
ah, ah, ah
And then he/she might say: ANT!
Or whatever A word comes to mind first.
Okay, back to my classroom.
Derrick's* hand shot up immediately after reading the word on the index card.
His hand was waving so hard that I actually felt a breeze on the other side of the classroom.
He was straining, making his torso as long as he could, in hopes that the teacher would call on him first.
Unable to resist, she did.
The word on the card was PULL.
"Puh, puh, puh, puh - PORN!"
Third grade, people.
The first P word he could think of was PORN.
God Love Him.
The silence in the classroom was met with laughter. Peels of it.
Derrick was so confused.
He truly thought he had the right answer.
So my brother is on break from college and he just got a job. Guess what his job is. Just GUESS.
OK, ready? Whatever you guessed: WRONG. My brother is test driving motorized wheelchairs. Like, in a warehouse somewhere. Just PICTURE that, will you? This is a kid, by the way, who managed to both drive into a ditch AND knock over a mailbox before he even got his driver's license. Which, by the way, we are not ever allowed to mention in my front of my mother without risking an hour-long lecture on being nice to our baby brother, but I digress.
Anyway, today was his first day, and apparently he now has an unshakeable case of the dizzies thanks to hours spent rolling around in slow circles. ("Every time I close my eyes, it's like I'm in the wheelchair again!" he says.)
