Bruschetta, Bacon, Boys, and Bitching

My husband’s website has been revamped and it looks fabulous! Go there, check the site out, and then go to the actual shop and buy stuff!

Because it’s not like I had anything better to do like sleep or clean or write or anything…I have a set of cat ears and a tail but didn’t bother fetching them. Make as many fat jokes as you can in 60 seconds…

Forgetta Bruschetta

 

Okay, not my best work. I stuttered a bit. Oh well. Forgetta bruschetta! :p

But when they brought the horse around, things got kinda crazy…

Yesterday, I did housework until my back and feet went on strike, then I stayed up all night last night messing around with blogging, freelancing, social networking, and affiliate marketing, then slept late today (not counting the every-two-hour feeding and changing of Freya), and now my husband has gone out with friends and I have homework to do.

Tomorrow, he has plans to head to OKC on a business trip, followed by driving further west to visit his mother because she may or may not be needing surgery soon. Tomorrow night is a friend’s birthday and for three years she’s been inviting me to go out on her birthday and for three years I’ve been having to decline for various reasons. I want to go. I want to socialize and make merry.

Am I a “dick” for wishing he’d not go on his trip? Am I a “bitch” for wishing he would have stayed home this evening so I could have gone to a local coffee shop or park or something to catch up on homework without having to worry about sweet little angel children needing attention or getting into things?

I haven’t been able to go job hunting because he hasn’t been wanting to take time out of his apparently busy schedule of promoting and running his small business and playing video games to spend time with his girls while I take on the full-time job of hunting for a job. I don’t think it is appropriate for me to walk into a professional office to drop off a copy of my resume and rub elbows with the hiring managers or HR while carting around two children.

I could really make some money for this family online if I was willing to stop using my social networking sites for social networking and focus entirely on affiliate marketing and freelancing, or if I were able to better monetize and market my blog, or if I were able to sell crafty things on eBay or Etsy or some such place. I’m frustrated with Paypal because my account is still in my maiden name and I can’t get my $16.50 USD into the bank account I went through the trouble of verifying until the names match. Even though Paypal said a DL would count, now they’re wanting my marriage license instead. I’d totally get that for them if I knew where it was.

The husband’s been griping at me for a while now because important documents are lost somewhere in my office, possibly ripped to shreds, thanks to a combination of Luna’s destructive behavior and my OCD organizational skills having shut down in response to said child’s actions vis a vis my office. He tells me I never should have taken said documents out of his lock box. I have my own lock box but had stopped using it. I took the documents out because I went on a road trip at one point and felt it was necessary to have proof that I was who I said I was and Luna was who I said she was.

By the end of this month, I need to turn in other documents and paperwork to the powers that be at the state office so they can determine whether we’re still eligible for EBT and the girls’ medicaid. Part of me wants the husband  to just go ahead and quit Hell-Mart now since he’s pretty sure they’re on the road to firing him and he’s unhappy with the corporate machine and he’s on leave right now not earning income anyway and he wants to focus on his startup business, but part of me is terrified that I’m not going to find a job, or at least not one that doesn’t require me to swallow my pride and convert my BA to TP for wages well below the poverty line, and part of me knows that if I’m having this much trouble finding the time and energy to complete the mandatory coursework for my first semester of graduate school after my adrenaline-pumping spontaneous enrollment back in January, then I probably shouldn’t be attempting to pile a full-time demanding job on top of graduate studies and parenting, especially in light of his lack of cooperation most times in regards to my educational pursuits…but I digress.

In this moment–discounting all of my motherly and wifely responsibilities–there are actually two long essays, a powerpoint presentation, a reading quiz, and numerous message board postings bearing weight on my flabby calcium-deficient shoulders, yet here I am writing a blog post instead. Why? Because it is easier. Because no one is grading me on it (and if they were I wouldn’t necessarily give one flying fuck about what they had to say, though I’d certainly take it into consideration). Because the amount of research and citation necessary for a blog post is minimal. Because because because because of the unnecessary procrastinating things I does…

If only someone would click that “donate” button on the Blogger version of my blog and give me enough to make it through til July when summer loans come rolling in, but that wouldn’t be me taking care of myself, that would be me taking charity, and apparently that would make me an evil lazy mooch in the eyes of quite a few persons.

This is what makes Hugh Laurie sexy:

Hugh Laurie (Keyboards) 

Hugh Laurie’s performance as Dr. Gregory House on the Fox drama “House” has garnered him two Golden Globe Awards for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. He has twice been honored by the Television Critics Association with TCA Awards for Individual Achievement in Drama. 

Laurie was born in Oxford, England, and educated at Eton and Cambridge University, where he took a degree in Anthropology. He rowed in the University Boat Race of 1980 and was also elected president of the venerable Footlights Revue. Along with Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson, Laurie produced “The Cellar Tapes,” which won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival of 1981 and propelled the three into a number of groundbreaking British television shows, including four seasons of “A Bit of Fry and Laurie,” which Laurie co-wrote for the BBC with Stephen Fry; three seasons of “Blackadder,” written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton; and three seasons of “Saturday Live.” In addition, four seasons of “Jeeves and Wooster,” based on the novels of P.G. Wodehouse, aired on PBS’s “Masterpiece Theatre” from 1990-1995. 

On the big screen, Laurie recently starred in Fox Searchlight’s “Street Kings” opposite Forest Whitaker and Keanu Reeves. Other film credits include “Flight of the Phoenix” opposite Dennis Quaid; “Peter’s Friends” directed by and co-starring Kenneth Branagh; “Sense and Sensibility” with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet; “Cousin Bette” with Jessica Lange; “The Man in the Iron Mask”; “101 Dalmatians” and the “Stuart Little” movies with Geena Davis.
On American television, Laurie portrayed Vincente Minnelli opposite Judy Davis in the network telefilm “Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows.” He also appeared in “Tracey Takes On…” and “Friends.” 

In addition to acting, Laurie has directed television programs and commercials, composed and recorded numerous original songs and written articles for London’s The Daily Telegraph newspaper. Four volumes of “A Bit of Fry and Laurie” scripts have been published by Mandarin, and his first novel, “The Gun Seller,” was published in both the U.K. and the U.S. to critical acclaim and has been adapted into a screenplay.
While filming “House” Laurie lives in Los Angeles.

It has little to do with his rugged looks or his on-screen charm. He is well educated, multi-talented, artistically versatile.
