meatwad get the honeys see...

i don't know if anyone else is keeping up with what's going on in our fine city today, but apparently there were 'suspicious packages' found under some overpasses and everyone got all up in arms...then they found the packages were a hoax, and a couple of them contained pics of one of the mooninites from aqua teen hunger force flipping the bird.
if you haven't heard of this, and you need a good, hearty laugh, please go to fox news channel and listen to the commentary from the news guy.
and i quote:
"we're getting reports that the alien type creatures pictured in the hoax packages are from a cartoon program called 'aqua teen hunger force'...i repeat, 'aqua teen hunger force'...stoner stuff, you know...the creatures pictured are called 'mooninites'...yes, that's right, these small alien creatures brought a great american city to a standstill this morning."
first of all, when the hell did boston become a 'great american city'??
(haha..i kidd, i kidd!)

update: so it turns out, that most of them were actually a marketing scheme by turner broadcasting network...hahahahhahahahahahaha....what a silly world we live in..

baby post, be forewarned

it's getting closer and closer to the time for out little man to be here, only five more weeks (give or take a couple), and although you would think that with a room already full of baby clothes, toys, etc, that it would seem very very real to us at this point, it seems to be getting more surreal by the minute.
no real problems with the pregnancy, except for a horrific amount of weight gain (about half in my belly and half in my ass). we've had a couple of baby showers and each of them were unique. i thank each and every person who gave us things, and i appreciate all the gifts...but, i really think there should be more to choose from when it comes to baby gift items out there. i mean, i think we were given around 50 blue and white onesies, and blue and white sleepers, and blue and white pants, and blue and white shirts...and shirts that said 'little boy' on them, and shirts with baseballs (or other sports items)...etc, etc, gender specific, gender specific. i've tried to buy baby clothing in the usual places and i realize the don't want the baby boy to look like a puff (in all pinks and soft yellows), and you don't want him to look like a box of blue pastels exploded on what is a mom to do??
then i found this site, and i thnk it's just about the cutest thing (best idea) i've seen in a while...c'mon moms, dress your boy babies like real men!! let's end all of this baby blue madness!!!

also, may have posted about this before, but here's another baby gift giving idea, in case any of you have upcoming showers to attend:
baby rock records
especially love the led zepplin and the cure (and i'm sure the pixies album will be 'interesting' if not wonderful).

warm the cockles

the cold has finally hit the northeast. today, while waiting for the bus, it was a balmy 9 degrees out, and i'm sure the windchill was something closer to a 'well digger's ass'. thank goodness my body temp is a bit higher these days, thanks to the little bebe growing in my belly and punching my kidneys.
but, if you're not fortunate enough to have your own growing belly furnace, or all the fat stores being pregnant affords you, then i recommend this recipe, that is easy and warm, and fairly lowfat. mister irving thinks it's just about the best thing since porn.

to your warmth:
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1 cup skim milk
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 potato, cubed
1/2 lb. chicken breast, but into pieces
2 (15 oz) cans creamed corn
1/4 cup dried potato flakes

Combine all ingredients, except for potato flakes, into your crockpot/slowcooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours. When finished, add potato flakes and cook on high for 5-10 more minutes. Serve in big bowls with fresh bread. (irving insists that it would be even better in bread bowls, but it's yet to be tried)

miss aretha

for the lovely pagan holiday known as christmas, where loved ones and not so loved ones exchange gifts and such, mister irving decided to splurge this year (you know, kind of a little thank you for being not only his wife, but also his baby mamma), he decided to buy me an ipod nano. yeah, i know, everyone has one of these little things, and i'm jumping in late, but hey, that's the way i roll (i just got a cell phone a few months ago).
before realizing that if i was going to put the songs i wanted on the nano, i would have to go handpick 1000 songs from my collection, i picked two songs to try out.
both by aretha franklin. the first is "i never loved a man", the second is "say a little prayer". can i just say, i am constantly forgetting how much some people just kick ass at what they do. miss aretha really does kick ass. she takes a goofy, sentimental pop song like, 'say a little prayer', and makes it the song that you just wish someone would be playing on the radio every single morning when you wake up. the world would be a better place, i think.
and "i never loved a man" soul ripping is that song??!!

ok, time for me to go pick 998 more songs.
