Why I Love My Husband

Posted by Gin on July 29, 2009

Because he texts me AC/DC lyrics, and includes the phrase “scream accordingly.”

He’s so awesome.

Check it: J and I have been MadMen-ified.

I look kind of hot in a scarf, no?


J is asking Don Draper, “This is a pretty swingin’ joint, but where are all the hot bitches, daddyo?”

Go Mad Men yourself, pick up the amazing second season, and catch the premiere of the sure-to-be-awesome third season on August 16.

P.S. Please welcome J to the club; he finally knows about This Here Blog, and contributed his caption (see, I don’t make that shit up).

Conundrum

Posted by Gin on July 26, 2009

Today’s Lunch: Easy Mac at work. It was hot enough to melt my “premium plastic dinnerware”, which freaks me out a little, but I don’t have anything else to eat and it will take me too long to leave to get anything.

Q: So Gin, how’s your weekend going?

A: I woke up in a panic in the pre-dawn hours, thinking about all the things I need to work on for an important meeting next week, the one that was conceptualized on Thursday afternoon, the one that as of 3 p.m. Friday was moved from Tuesday to MONDAY MORNING, the one that I CAN’T prepare for just yet because of a server outage until 1 p.m. today.

So at 6 a.m. I was cleaning out my large bathroom drawers as silently and nearly in the dark as possible so I wouldn’t wake J. Because that’s what sane people do.

Stupid brain.

Even more shuttle crew wake up songs

Posted by Gin on July 25, 2009

Weeks ago, when I thought of posting these, it was going to be a quick daily thing. Not so much. Oh, well.

Tuesday July 21, Flight Day 7

“Life Is A Highway” by Rascal Flatts, for rookie and EVA crewmember Tom Marshburn.

Wednesday July 22, Flight Day 8

“In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel for Tom Marshburn.

P.S. To my knowledge, John Cusack did not blast this from a boombox floating in space outside the vehicle, although that mental picture is kind of funny.
P.P.S. Cheesy as it may sound, this song is still a panty-melter.
P.P.P.S. Sorry if that was TMI, but I was speaking in general terms.
P.P.P.P.S. Or maybe very specific terms. And I’m not really sorry.

I seem to have misplaced my mascara this morning, and I am gravely disappointed and out-of-sorts. Putting gunk on my eyelashes makes me feel better about myself.
