I really like you broards

I like the fact that I've "known" most of you for the better part of a decade. I like that we can drift away for a while and drift back in, and still know we'll be welcomed. I like the fact that most anything anyone has to say will be met with the wry humor and general good naturedness that is the hallmark of the Old Broards. I like reading about your lives, and I like the things you have to say.

You guys are pleasant little bright spot in my life. Thanks, broards.

I think I have a crush on Bode Miller. He's exactly the kind of guy (physically) that I always fall for and end up with -- sort of wholesome, boy next door looking white boys -- my mom liked the same sort of guy so I must have inherited it from her.

The funny thing is, if you were to ask me what I'm attracted to I would say the opposite. I would say Keanu Reeves -- tall, dark, gorgeous. But, every one of my exes are tall, blonde haired, blue eyed, good looking, boy-next-door types.

I make the "physical" distinction above because while I love looking at Bode, I hate to admit that if the picture is moving, he always looks and acts like someone who is stoned or stupid so it's purely a physical attraction.


can it please stop snowing? can it be spring? please?

News of my world

So just wanted to give an update in the lives of Jean, Sean, Monkee, Morris and Mookie. I was offered a job in Santa Maria, my hometown on the Central Coast and I've accepted it. I will be moving up there on March 1st to report to work but Sean has to stay here in Lake View Terrace until the end of March to finish out our lease. In the meantime I'm staying at my ex- in laws and coming home on weekends to help pack. So this is going to be a major change for us, I'm excited but also stressed, it's hard to move so far especially with three cats. We went up on Saturday to look at houses, we are going to try to buy since everything is cheaper up there. My new job is working for an HR firm as the benefits specialist, that will be a big change as I've been at financial companies for over a decade. So that's about it, lots of changes in store for the Geraghty's ;)

Figure Skating > Shen and Zhao

I have to say, I'm usually amazed when I watch the pairs figure skating competitions in the Olympics and not in a good way. I realize that what they're doing is amazingly hard but I'm often amazed at how out of sync teams are, how their routines don't match the music at all, etc.

But . . . last night's performance by the Chinese team of Shen and Zhao was truly, truly amazing. I don't know enough to understand the technical parts to know if the routine is good as I'm watching it but, I was mesmerized by their routine because it was so perfect. They were completely synched, they matched their music beautifully and the music was beautiful. And, apparently, their technique was outstanding as well. If you missed it and you like pair skating, you should watch it, it was lovely.

You can see it here:

One of the things that's amazing when watching this is, you can hear the sound of their blades on the ice at the beginning and, it's so synchronized it's like one set of feet.

Olympics > Mogul Racing Outfits

The U.S.'s uniforms or outfits (or whatever they're called in the Olympics) for the team (both men and women) doing the mogul race (or whatever it's called) look like pajamas.

And the girl figure skater for the Canadian pairs team (Langlois and Hay -- not sure which one is her) looks like a monster. She is a very, very scary looking person.

i wish this guy lived in my neighborhood.

Orbie and Gingerbread Surfer Cookies

I had a dream last night that Orbie was in. She was making decorations for a fund raiser and she was making gingerbread surfer chicks. Little gingerbread surfboards and surfer chicks riding them. They were brown gingerbread cookies with white icing -- they were cute. She was drawing the hair flying behind them, etc.

It was odd.

quote for today

'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.'

It's snowing snowy snow

It's snowing like a mother.
Weather forecast: Snow, snow and more snow

Indiana Food

Hey Emma . . . I'm going to a Super Bowl party on Sunday and am looking for something to bring that is typically Indiana. I looked on the internet and Indiana doesn't have an official food and most references I found to food in Indiana was for pork and beans. Any ideas?? Thanks.


Tonight we were eating dinner at a theme BBQ joint before I had to go to water aerobics. Halfway through our meal an elderly man came up to our table and handed Mandolin $5 and said "You're such a good girl. You do a great job eating in public and we were so impressed. I hope you take this $5 and have a dessert, because you've earned it." He then shook our hands, told us we were great parents and walked away.


Lost begins tonight! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
