Where, oh where are my Packers?!

Last night on Monday Night Football, the Packers got beat yet again. Oh so sad. Not only did the Packers lose the game - they lost it to the stupid Vikings!!! And not only did they lose to the Vikings but I lost a bet as a result!!

Matt bet me a bottle of vodka that the Vikings would win. I'm thinkin' it should be a teeny bottle because the Vikings only won off a field goal in the last few seconds....

I know none of you reading this probably care about football even. Oh well, you'll have to hear me lament anyway. I will stand by my Packers always!!! And I will always bet bottles of vodka on them!! It's a win-win situation ;)

Countdown to Harry Potter 4

Only FOUR more days til the release of Harry Potter Goblet of Fire. Here in Chicago it will be playing at the IMAX at Navy Pier. An expensive yet so cool way to see the movie. Who's going with me???

I'm excited for it, however I was disappointed with Harry Potter #3. It was my favorite book, but the movie just wasn't what I expected. I wonder how this 4th one will be???

Please use recycled toilet paper!!

I'm sick and have no voice today, so I am FORCED to hang out on the internet and write a new entry in my blog!!!

I would like to quote a recent email from the National Resource Defence Council:

You can help save trees by purchasing recycled tissues, toilet paper, napkins and paper towels.

(did you know that if every U.S. household replaced just one roll of virgin fiber toilet paper with a 100%-recycled one, we could save *423,900* trees?).

NRDC has made it easy for you -- just visit our new consumer guide and learn which brands are the most (and least) forest-friendly:

We've even created a printable wallet card that you can easily bring with you when you shop:

Friends, please check this out!!! Go to their website and read all about environmental news and even sign up for environment action emails that only come about once a month!

Candy Corn

I'm on a role...might as well procrastinate a bit more...

What the heck is candy corn made out of?????

I recently saw a candy corn package that said "Made with real honey." Yummy I thought!! However, does that mean all other kinds of candy corn are made with fake honey? No honey at all??? What is IN candy corn? (I'm guessing I don't really want to know...)

I don't even like candy corn really, but once I eat one, I can't stop. These particulary candy corns were excellent though, I must say, so I'm thinking the real honey had something to do with it.

They were Brach's brand. If you are a candy corn fan, this is definitely the brand to get.

Happy Fall!!


I have soooooooo much work to do!! However there is an important issue that needs discussing.

Beautiful Heather is wondering what "Stickies" are. Well, they are the best darn creation since sliced bread. They are like post-it notes for your computer, so instead of writing out lists everywhere (if you're oddly organized like me...), you can now make lists right on your desktop!

As Jennifer said: "I can't guarantee it isn't spy-ware, but the program is really fun to have and I haven't had any noticeable problems since downloading it!"

Go download it, it takes but a minute!

Buddy, the cutest kitty in the world

Did everyone know that I have THE CUTEST kitty in the world?! Well, okay, he's not really mine...he's my parents. But he's the cutest and sweetest. Just look at him!!

He also likes to play hide and seek - he really peeks around the corner and then hides.

Who needs a man when you've got a kitty as precious as Buddy?!!

Timmy's got a blog!!!

Yes, it's true. Tim, aka Timmy, aka PiliPili (really hot and spicy in Swahili) has now got a - shall we say - 'real blog'.

He's linked to my blog - check him out! It may not be too exciting thus far, but my oh my I'm quite impressed at how quickly he set one up!!

This is quite a trend that Jennifer has started, eh? I mean, that Tim started...umm.... :)

Couples who match

Nope, I will never, and I repeat, NEVER, be one of "those" couples who dresses the same. Remember how embarrassing it used to be in school if you and a friend were wearing the same shirt, or near same outfit. You'd get harassed by other friends, people maybe would even accuse you of "liking" each other, God forbid. So when did it become cool to dress the same as your significant other?? Ugh, gag me with a sharp stick please!!

Yes, this was sparked because I did in fact see one of "those" kind of couples, wearing matching white vests. eew. And when I have an engagement picture done someday I hope!! ....I will not, and I repeat, NOT, wear matching shirts, like denim shirts. We will make sure our colors don't clash, maybe even get color-coordinated, but the matching clothes are out.

Any single guys reading this who want to get with me? Ain't gonna happen if you want to wear the same clothes as me.

Sorry, I have high standards I guess.

the curious case of who REALLY showed Becky the blogging side of life

Interestingly enough, I've discovered that I actually learned about blogs from Tim. Jennifer, what do you make of this claim??? I believe we have a feud about to start because Tim claims that I quite possibly may be "giving you all the credit."

Now, in my opinion, the real question becomes, Do we believe the word of someone wearing this ridiculous cowboy hat? Hmmm....Now THAT'S a question to ponder!

Haiku Fun

In honor of Elizabeth's recent haiku posting, and also in honor of the many hours I spent in my car yesterday:

There are bad drivers
Taking over Chicago
I want them to LEAVE.

And now in honor of my current state of mind:

Work Work Work Work Work
Will I eat lunch, or will I:
Work Work Work Work Work

I'm in a much better mood than I may sound!!!! :) PEACE OUT!!!
