I Love that song, “Skippin‘” by Mario. Always provokes a happy dance. As does the weather here. It’s in the 50’s in the morning! That would be like the first snow for most people, but remember, I live on the outskirts of the Gates of Hell (temp wise). Am uncharacteristically bright and shiny. Have been for a while. Maybe I have to be in a misery to write. Nah.

Stupid Morning: This one. I woke up at 8:10. By 9 am, I’d had blood drawn at one doctor’s office AND had a temporary crown put on at the dentist’s office. No food, NO CAFFEINE. Attire: trench coat over pajamas. Attitude: it’s all a blur – I am a caffeind. Am now drinking magnum of espresso.

 The Crown Thing: The stupid crown on tooth in very back of mouth is seriously out of control. As stated before, my dentist wanted to replace the  $5K/3 surgeries crown. Had temporary put in. The stupid temporary fell out as I was dashing off to a black-tie event Saturday night. Woo Hoo – here comes Clem Cadiddlehopper in a black cocktail dress. Had the stupid temporary put back in on Monday. It fell out last night before Glee. (Did not impair dancing capabilities). Temp put back on this morning, but now dentist thinks more surgery because of aggressive gums. Oh please. By the time – if it ever comes – that I do get my real crown, the cost will be more than a gold crown I could wear on my head. Perky, nice dental assistant suggested I NOT drink hot coffee  or perhaps I’d enjoy an iced coffee. I DO NOT ENJOY ICED COFFEE, SCREWED UP DENTAL ISSUES, OR DRINKING COFFEE THROUGH A STRAW. Shoo, woman!

On the Job Front: Have really gotten quite cozy with this unemployment situation. Very Cozy. In the past 2-1/2 months, I’ve applied for approximately one job. It would require a move as well as making an appearance on tv every day. Couldn’t be a longer shot. Am estimating there are at least a million applicants. But my mantra is, “Oh well, what the hell”. Trust me, I’m not packing my bags. Have found some financial opportunities. Have amassed approximately $20.80 answering surveys online for Opinion Outpost. God knows, I have an opinion on everything. Am figuring that the surveys combined with garage sale and eBay offerings, I should clear a cool $50 this month. Drinks are on me.

Observations from Past Week

  •  Watching middle-aged white men try to keep up with racehorse dates on dance floor is food for America’s Funniest Home Videos. <insert peals of laughter here> Some of you can actually dance; I just haven’t seen it happen. I love to laugh so please keep on dancing.

  • September/October reading list to come … man, I’ve been lazy.
  • Still have sassy attitude in tact (good or bad, depending on person). Saw a friend I hadn’t seen in 15 years; we did the your life/my life deal. I said I’d been divorced five years. He said, “So, you’re single and hot?”. My reply: “No, I’m spoken for and hot!” So there!

Rather than ramble on, am going to take nap or contemplate existence or read a book or dance to Glee rerun ….

  1. Glad you’re back, Izzie! Missed you!

    Love Clem Cadiddlehopper…


  2. Where are we meeting for drinks? haha Lovely post – sorry about the crown. But what a cool thing your friend said!
    Sunshine x

  3. Wow, what an awesome post! And funny to boot! Hey, I hope you get that perfect job soon, whatever it is. By the way, I am sorry to hear about the crown thing. I would recommend my dentist, but he’s in sf.

  4. Sunshine, let’s meet at the Ice Bar! Just give me time to hop a plane to London and I’ll let you know when I get there … until then, hold down the fort, er, palace. 🙂

  5. Job front: start your own company and outsource everything 😉

  6. You know what I hate ? Aggressive gums!!!! Blahahaah with aggressive hang nails a close second!

    • Oh Loon, when I told my Cooking Partner the “aggressive gums” diagnoses, he almost fell down laughing. No gums can be THAT aggressive in 1 day. Another long dental bullshit fest in store. OMG, you reminded me – once I had a massage – and the “professional” working on me had a hangnail. It was TRAGIC.

  7. People think I’m being ironic when I say this, but “America’s Funniest Home Videos” is the funniest show on TV.

  8. I’ll have a martini, dry with two olives, thanks 🙂

  9. “You’re spoken for & hot”

    HAHA love it!

    and OMG with the dentist stuff.

  10. I’d kill for Spoken for and hot… oh wait,I was and I sent him packing! sigh….

    I totally feel you pain on the job thing! Drinking is my answer too.. I really need to come west!

  11. I see my dental future in your post, and it scares me.

    Whenever someone calls me “hot,” I’m on Cloud 9 for the rest of the day…week even.

  12. I hope to God my dental adventures are never yours, thoughts! Yeah, “hot” is good, even if I was wearing chicken cutlets that were begging to fall off, along with the crown. Sheesh.
