oh *my* July

i want to take this post to
express
all my
to my
wonderful
July
*
i truly truly love you.
*
the ribs*steak*burger BBQs,
hot hot sun,
days on the beach with
the sand on my elbows, knees, & feet,
the sticky blanket of humidity,
the lawn torches,
the peeling sunburned flaky skinned backs,
pulsating jiggly thighs in the short short shorts,
the scorching cement,
i love you.
for so much more,
all of you, July, i love you.

[*boyf love*
*awesome outfitness*
*hair in straighty-straight-straightness*

*
{{i'm just thinkin' on that}}

these guys:

*
*

at
the end
of my
today,
while
i'm laying
in bed,
i would like
somebody
to:

*Starbs* LoVE

remember a while back
when *Starbs*
did the whole
"The Way I See It"
on their cups??
[see below]
well,
"The Way I See It"
that I saw was
The Way I See It #76.
*
*
*
it said this:
*
"The irony of commitment is that it's deeply liberating -- in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life."
*
-- Anne Morris
Starbucks customer from New York City. She describes herself as an "organization builder, restless American citizen, optimist."
i commented on the post

*
i read a post and commented on it with this quote.

it was the first response i thought of.

i saved it to my Blackberry over a year ago, expecting to recall it/use it again one day.

maybe this day was that day.

hope it helped.

cool.

*

off to watch

Project Runway & Jersey Shore

biaaaaatches!

{{fist pumpin' my self-sewn, couture-glove-covered hand in the air}}

*weekend log*

[and i don't mean the kind you leave in the toilet on sunday morning]
***
***
*
***
***
uh!
so...topic:
~what made up my weekend~
*
Yes,
there was some
involved,
as hoped for
in my last post.
*
that was a major plus from my weekend.
*
there was,
however,
a whole
lot of
lowlights from the weekend as well!
Ugh!
Were there ever!
a ton of chores,
my dad's pathetic & childish behavior,
my just-about-ready-to-break down car,
tears, tears, and more tears
after being berated by my
overworked-overstressed-overheated
mother,
and
some drama on our bike ride
involving a raving lunatic woman
blowing her coast guard whistle in
the boyf's ear
[won't go into it]
*
FUCK ALL THOSE THINGS!
*
here are
some pictures
of the highlights:
[tee hee hee!] a bunch of lovin' from *the babies*
[oh, & my make-up done by *bitt*]
above,
i'm smoochin' Alejandro on top of the box,
and
a little jealous Carmen Sandiego is lookin' at the smooch
*
above,
Carmen & me
[try to notice the sweet honey,
and not the overtaking shnoz]
*
below,
[look away from the sideburns!]
*
the babies were taking
Saturday afternoon
naps:
above,
Carmen Sandiego,
sleeping like she tends to sleep,
in her brother's bed.
*
below,
Alejandro
in his sister's bed.
*
***
*
oh,
another
highlight from
my weekend:
*yay*
after two years of
being on WeightWatchers
for, like, the
gazillionth
time,
it's clicked.
*
~i'm a Lifetime Member of WeightWatchers~
[no more paying to get weighed = more money for clothes]
[woo hoo!]
*
got my
little
*golden key charm*
and all.
*
in truth,
i only needed
to lose
between 12 & 15 pounds,
but it's taken me
two friggin' years to do it.
*
i credit it to my adopted
hobbies of biking & running
and
also
getting smarter everyday
about food & portions & why and when I eat.
*
i recommend WW to anybody.
*
***
*
another [kind of] highlight:
the new clothesline my mother installed
in the backyard
in her words:
"we need to start budgetin', gurls.
if we can save a few hundred dolluhs
two munths of thuh yea-uh,
we should dew it."
[my attempt at conveying her 'New Yawk' accent]
*
i consider it a highlight because i love
the old-school, back in the day,
1960s Summer concrete
backyard feel to it,
even if it does take
3x longer than throwin' the cothes
in the dryer.
Whatev.
*
***
*
another
total highlight
from the weekend:
the super Shish-Kebobs we grilled
oh, yeah.
chopped veggies...
...and fruit!
secret *added* ingredient?
puh
puh
puh
peaches!
kebabbed with beef
*
oh, dear.
looked
so sexy
on the
grill!
they did, they did.
*
***
*
finally,
the highlight that took place
sunday night
was
our bike ride
into Manhattan.
{{deep sigh; smile}}
*
we pulled up to Astoria Park
and
parked right under the Triborough bridge:
*
below,
Tomas & Damian
[you know them in more detail from this post]
unloadin' my bike from the
back o' Damian's truck:
*
view from our potty stop:
*
while on the bridge:
"Bronx, Keep Left.
Manhattan, Keep Right."
[we'll be keepin' RIGHT]
*
the boyf.
breakin'.
*
yes.
motto for biking.
motto for life.
*

this shot, above, is pretty much us chillaxin' at the half way point, three hours in.

yeah. the ride took us about 5 hours.

started @ 4 pm; ended around 9-ish.

the pic above was taken @ 7:01pm.

;)
