Sis 2 here --
Just a quickie blog ... hell a quickie is more than I get anyway but I digress ... to vent.
I was talking with the STBX (soon to be ex) this morning about his new house and the bitchy teenage daughter -- he said "she won't like it because I am not getting cable. I want to get off the couch more and if it is there I will watch it." My response was "I am aware of that" but what I really wanted to say was "No fucking shit? You've been sitting on the fucking couch for years here while I did stuff around the house, dealt with the kids, took up running and working out and whenever I asked you to do something you didn't want to -- watching fucking Planet of Apes was more important."
I think I should get a gold star or something for my restraint ...
Until the next time, keep it sassy and sarcastic

Just a quickie . . . my new friend and blogging buddy, Menopausal Mother, has a new book coming out soon. I'm shamelessly plugging it, because (1) I know it will be fantastically funny and (2) someday I may write a book and I'll want to do the same. LOL!
So, go to her website to get the details here.
Until next time, keep it #sassyandsarcastic . . . .

Today was just lovely so I wanted to share the mood. I didn't have to go to the office until after a client meeting, so I got to do my walk early in the morning. The weather cooperated . . . it was cool, but not cold; the sun was shining, but it wasn't beating down. Then I drove to the BEACH for my meeting. Well, I didn't actually go to the beach, but the office was right there. Now, I'm not a beach person--I hate sand--but I love to look out at the water. After a short, but sweet client meeting, I stopped at the cupcake shop that was next door. I was getting a cupcake for a co-worker who just got a promotion. Of course, I got myself one too. It was a "Guiness Stout Chocolate Cupcake with Baileys Irish Crème Frosting (contains alcohol)." Damn! It was yummy!
When I got to work, it was peaceful . . . no drama . . . and I got a lot done. It just seemed to be a no pressure day.
So, I had a great day. Until next time, keep it #sassyandsarcastic . . . .

Sis 1 here . . .
Karma is a bitch and a very good friend of mine. I've talked about what an ass ESD is and how he stole money from me. His justification was that I would make that money back by April, whereas he didn't know where he would be come April without that money.
Well, I got two pieces of news today... (1) he's broke and (2) I got a raise today. To top it off, the raise brought me to a goalpoint in my life.
So, life is good. Until next time, keep it #sassyandsarcastic. . . .

Sis 1 here. . .
I know my sis doesn't believe this, but Spring is coming. I walked out of the house this morning and that feeling and smell was present. The feeling is that of a warmer undercurrent in the cool air. The smell is that of freshness. That's the only way to describe it. Plus the time changes this weekend.
So those of you in the cold and snow... This means you, Sis. . . Hang in there. Spring is coming.
Until next time, keep it #sassyandsarcastic. . . .

Recently everything seems to be overwhelming me and I mean EVERYTHING and EVERYONE. I feel pulled a thousand different directions and everyone is dancing on my very last nerve. I am sure it is a compilation of work stress, home stress and being cooped up because of the hateful ass winter we are having but I truly feel like I am hanging on by a thread with no release in sight.
Do you ever have one of these days/weeks/months? Share and let's vent together!
Until then, hoping my thread doesn't snap while I am keeping it #sassyandsarcastic.

Some of you may know and some of you ... well you need to pay better fucking attention ... may not, but Sis 1 and I grew up together in Indiana. She was the lucky bitch and escaped this place many years ago (I won't say how many because that will age her and then she might hit me the next time I see her) but I have been stuck here. I have tried to make an escape but it is like there is an invisible force-field keeping me here.
Indiana is sometimes beautiful and awesome - there are some great places and people here - and sometimes it is is awful. There are way too many backward-ass, narrow-minded people for me but ... well that is a blog post for another day. Today I want to complain about the hell of winter here in Indiana!!
I hate winter ... I mean I despise winter ... let's just say winter can kiss my ass. I don't like to be cold (and by cold I mean anything below 64 degrees) and I hate snow and ice. Snow only belongs in those little glass globes you shake and put back on the table and ice only belongs in my adult beverages.
This year winter came in strong and earlier than usual -- it started in early December and hasn't left since. We have broken records for the amount of snow for January, February and the winter overall. We have broken records for the number of days below zero -- yes, I said BELOW fucking zero!! It is now March and we are expecting more mother-effing snow tonight -- estimating between 6-8" of the damn white stuff. OMG ... I am in winter HELL.
I am OVER IT!!! Winter needs to go away now -- there are not enough wine bottles and curse words to get me through much more of this. GO THE HELL AWAY!!
I am cold and sick of it but until next time I am keeping it #sassyandsarcastic

I've lived in LA for 24 years and I seldom see any celebrities. We don't tend to run in the same circles. LOL! When I do see them, I tend not to say anything, because I don't want to bother them. But, I learned a hard lesson several years ago. I ran into Rod Stewart in a grocery store. I had a mad crush on that man and I chickened out talking to him. Missed opportunity. After that, I vowed that if I saw a celebrity that I was/am into, I will say something . . . without being too obtrusive. I did that when I met Sean Astin. We went to college together and we became friends for awhile (along with his wonderful wife who is a fellow Hoosier). We lost touch after graduating from college.
Tonight, I came home from a book signing. I've met the author, Sue Monk Kidd, four times now. To me, she seems like family, but she's really a big deal now. Her new book is the current #1 bestseller (and it's fabulous y'all) and she's Oprah's Bookclub 2.0 choice! So cool, right?
Right. But here's even cooler. I met Blair from Facts of Life, y'all! Yup, that's right. Lisa Welchel was at the book signing. I swear I stared at her the whole time deciding how to approach her. I finally just went up, apologized for staring and asked if she was who she was. She was very gracious and kind and confirmed. I told her how I used to run home from school to watch her on The New Mickey Mouse Club and then saw every episode of Facts of Life. I had such a girl crush on her. She was so beautiful and I just loved her. BTW--still f'g beautiful and looks the same as she did back then. I think she was a little surprised about the MMC, because everyone knows who Blair is, but maybe not that she was on MMC. She asked my name . . . which I stuttered out . . . and then introduced me to her friend Michelle (who I apologized for interrupting and she was super nice too). I did chicken out about getting her autograph, because I didn't want to be too pushy. But dang, that was really cool. I'm still excited.
So, tonight, was a great night.
Until next time, keep it #sassyandsarcastic . . . .

On behalf of Sis 2 and me, wishing you a happy new year. Here's to a better 2014 than 2013, which in itself was better than 2012. Expect to see more sassiness and sarcasm from us in the coming year.
Until the next time, keep it #sassyandsarcastic . . . .
