The week in review, btw ROCO

Hiya loyal readers <snicker> and those who just stumble upon.  On with all the nothing that happened in my world this week.

  • I think that we're all growing increasingly tired of politics.  I'll skip over all that jazz, except for one little photo to be posted a little later.
  • It's been a quiet week in la casa de MiamiShyner.  Lots of exercise going on and I've managed to get down to 125.  I am still shooting for 120, but hey, I just don't think my body is interested. 
  • There are officially 2 weeks until I go under the knife. (Double S, if you're reading this, yes, I know how you feel, but I also know you'll still love me 😛 )  I shall be looking fantastic for my 35th birthday as per the plan.
  • I got to see a really cool Cirque du Soleil demo since Corteo will be in town soon.

  • I thought I was cute the other day….

  • I have the worst case of raccoon eyes EVER.  I guess they've always been like that.  I'm working on fixing it though.  Do love that my hair is finally getting long.  Let's see if I have something with which to compare from a few years ago.
  • Me

    There.  It's actually laying down and dare I say cascading over my shoulders now.  HA!  Oh, yeah, and I actually had makeup on in the picture on the left.

  • Pretty stoked that I'll officially be smart in another 51 days.  Completion of an Associates degree that really doesn't mean much.  Especially in south Florida where no one pays pretty much no matter what/who you know.
  • Can I go back to bartending now please?  Pretty please?  No?  Ok fine. Well, not fine, but I'll deal with it for a while longer.
  • Ooooh, big, BIG excitement is that we've reached the two-digit number countdown until vacation.  We've got a big group going this year so it should be mega-fun.  Park City again since we enjoyed it so much last year.  I'll be daily blogging from there like last year, but without any big announcements like an engagement. :-) 
  • We got this house for this year at last year's price, so we're pretty happy about that part too.
  • Our previous moving destination was Salt Lake City.  We're shying away from that now and leaning more towards the Boulder area.  I've seen some fantastic houses out there and they are reasonably priced.  With yards!
  • Oh, Saturday night Lovey and I went over to Octobeerfest.  $25 for all you can drink.  There was beer from all over, rum and vodka.  A whole bunch of people, mostly college kids, watching football and putting away booze.  Good times.  We still fit in as far as looking the age of the college kids unlike some of the old farts who were there trying to pick up younguns.
  • Yesterday, driving home, I saw this bumper sticker:

Not sure if it was a joke or what since we have a lot of young Republicans in our area.  I just found it amusing.  And mildly disturbing.

SO yeah, that's the week in review.  It is Friday as well, so let the congregation say….


Peace out and have a great weekend everyone!!

  1. lots going on!uhm… going under the knife for cosmetic reasons??? hehe.dude, isn't she technically a "gilf" now? hehe ;P oh! and we saw corteo! it was amazing!!!! i think it was for our anniversary… anyway, it was awesome 🙂

  2. bumper sticker – funny (except it's [hopefully not] VPILF)Corteo is one of my least favorite Cirque shows. Not bad if you're super-duper up close but I found it amazingly boring when I was further back (first row of upper level). "Something" was just missing… the "magic" I guess. Kazaa is a billion times better. But up close, you can really get into the costuming and aerial arts parts of it – kind of sharing the acrobats' experiences. I assume that would be doubly true for you. (did you see that I posted pics of me in a hoop?)Boulder?!? Eeeegads, hope those new body parts are coming with build in heaters!! Breckenridge is where my mouth literally froze to the point that I couldn't move it to talk (we went indoors immediately).

  3. To be honest, it isn't high on my list of favorites either, but it is here right around my b-day and it's hard for me to pass up Cirque no matter which show it is. Fortunately, we are I think 5 rows back from the front of the stage. I didn't want to be right at the front and looking up for the whole show. I haven't seen Kazaa, but I really want to…I wanna see all of them actually, lol. This is only number three for me (La Nouba and O were one and two).
    I DID see you on the hoop! You look awesome and really comfortable with it. Were you having a lot of fun? I have yet to try that particular apparatus.
    🙂 No built in heaters on those bad boys, but I grew up in the cold so I think I'll be able to rock it out. Miami's fun for a while, but I've had enough.

  4. They just launched another show. I need to find out more info. I really should have known about it ahead of time and am not quite sure why I didn't.Row 5 should be good – not too far, not too close. I get too caught up in wanting every show to be stupendously better than the previous. It's just not realistic.Only another year till they premiere their new permanent show in Hollywood – I sooo hope to find a way to work there!

Say What?
