So long, Gary Coleman. Now you and Sophie have something in common: a 2010 death. Wait!... Er, it seems I didn't follow my lead on "more cheerful." Let me try again. Ahem. I leave for San Juan in 7.5 hours. Hooray!! I'm still not packed or quite ready to go. Boo!!!
I'm cranky as a result of being ill-prepared this late in the game. But! We bought another new car! That waylaid my plans of getting-ready. We traded in the old Lexus for a brand-spanking new model. We had no intention of doing that whatsoever, but then they let us take one home overnight and their diabolical plan worked. So now Kenny's leasing a brand new one for a couple of years and I can drive it in the winter after one slide of the convertible. The new car has remote start, which is groovy. And a lot of other neato gizmos, too. We're officially irresponsible, we have cars that are far nicer than our house. Ah well. Ya only live once. Just ask Gary Coleman.
Stanley (the cat, not the grandpa or the neighbor) gave us a fright this week. He did the same head twitch nausea move that Caesar did when it turned out to be cancer. We were really freaked out Wednesday morning. But he seems to have shaken it off and is eating fine, so we think that it was a fluke, plus the fact that I denied cancer to The Universe and refused to accept it so I'm sure that had something to do with it. I really have a lot of Things I have to do so I am heading off to do those Things. Have a Proud To Be An American kinda Memorial Weekend. See ya in June. Unless I post from Aruba, which could happen. Be on the lookout just in case. It could get exciting here!

It's been a time fraught with indecisiveness trying to figger out what to do. My lease is up soon, it was time to come up with something. I've been driving a Lexus SUV for 12 years, it was time for a change. My old car was a wide and comfortable ride, just like me! My new car is a sleek and fast ride - I've been working out so I can live up to the expectations of my car!
And now I need to invest in Shamwows, since I lost my mind and bought a black car. I've been wiping that thing off every effing day. And then? Some sappy flowers of some sort landed all over it and believe you me, it was no good time trying to clean that off. Kenny worked himself up into a froth and then I googled and found that hand sanitizer is good for removing sap, and sure enough, it is! Plus, it's exterior is so sanitized you can walk right up and lick the car with confidence, should you so desire. But please, wipe off the smudge.
I was in Atlantic City over the weekend with my girlfriendie. It was much fun.
On Thursday I fly to Denver for a quick overnight business trip.
Next Friday they are having a private burial for my grandmother. We'll be heading to Southern Ohio for that, and of course Kenny has suggested we stay at the Wheeling Downs Casino while we're in the neighborhood.
Vegas after that. Then, the month wraps up with a week-long cruise to the Southern Caribbean with my other girlfriendie. It's a tough life, but someones gotta live it.
And at least you'll now know why I will be giving splotchy blog. There's so, so much more I could say, but it's 11:25 and I've got a bizzy day ahead. And I've got to come down off my high from watching Lost tonight. It's been a great t.v. week, last night with Jack Bauer breaking all sorts of badass all over the place, and now Lost killin' off peeps right and left. Crazy good t.v.
Oh! And tomorrow is one of my favorite holidays - Cinco de Mayo!! I love any holiday that celebrates with margaritas and cheesy enchiladas. And salsa, don't forget the salsa! I was telling Kenny that my two favorite holidays are Cinco de Mayo and Daylight Savings Time. But only the time in the Fall, where we get an extra hour of bartime (back in the 'day, that mattered more) and now I look forward to the extra hour of sah-weet sah-weet sleep. Which reminds me of what my beloved said to me when I was debating the convertible: "You know, you're holding on to whatever youth you have left, and believe me, it's not much, so just get the convertible." And....good night.
