I’m getting old

I used to be able to stay up all night with no effort at all.  Now?  Holy hell am I tired.  I barely got any sleep at all this past weekend, and I barely made it through the day at work today.  How did I do it?  It was just a couple of years ago!  I could deal with no sleep, I could deal with jet lag, I could handle it all.  And suddenly I’ve got an 8:00-5:00 job (okay, 7:30 to 3:30 job with no lunch break.  Same diff.) and I can’t stay up all night anymore?  When the hell did this happen?  It’s NOT cool!  I can barely function now!  I was a zombie all day today, and I was fantasizing about my bed all freaking day today!  

Today everyone was like, “kegger, what are you doing for your birthday?  Are you going to go out?  Are you going to go get a nice dinner?”  

“No way!  I’m going to SLEEP!  I’ll save the birthday celebrations for the weekend!”  

Everyone was kind of looking at me like I was crazy.  And like I had no life.  (Which I guess is kind of debatable.  I guess my life is pretty boring to some, but I’m content with it.)  But then again, I have to remind myself that they don’t know about the fun, crazy, hectic weekend that I had.  Which would also seem pretty uneventful to some, but when you DO finally get to sleep, it’s not easy to sleep in a full sized bed with yourself, a husband, and a 100 pound great dane–when I tried to explain this, everyone was like, 

“But Kegger, why didn’t you just toss Lucy off the bed and make her sleep on the floor?!”  

I tried that.  Believe me, I tried that.  But we have a king sized bed.  She snuggles up to me every night, and there’s always plenty of room for her.  When I shoved her off the bed, she looked at me like I’d ripped up her favorite toy.  Those pitiful puppy dog eyes just killed me.  And then she jumped right back on the bed.  So… yeah.  Dog slept in the bed with us.  It was a VERY crowded full sized bed, and needless to say, when I finally DID get to sleep, it wasn’t good sleep.  

I think I might take a Tylenol PM and crash.  Save the birthday celebrations for the 3 day weekend.  

I’m pathetic.  

Side note that has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the story:  This weekend I bought some Fit Flops.  I have a thing for flip flops, so I figured, what the hell?  And seriously, they WORK!  All I did this weekend was swap flip flops.  From my Reefs to the Fit Flops.  And I woke up Sunday morning and my hamstrings hurt like I’d worked out.  Then, this morning, I woke up and my thighs were sore.  Cool!  Flip flops that make your leg muscles all exercisey-sore.  I’m impressed.

I know that voice…

I’ve noticed recently that there are a lot of actors doing voiceover work in commercials. It drives me crazy, because I can’t always pinpoint who’s doing the talking. So far, I’ve recognized Gary Sinise (Army), Patrick Dempsey (State Farm and Mazda), Kate Walsh (Cadillac), Zach Braff (Cottonelle toilet paper), Lauren Graham (Special K and maybe a credit card commercial) and John Corbett and Wanda Sykes (Applebees).

Am I right about all of these? Have I missed someone? Does it drive you crazy when you can’t recognize someone’s voice, or am I just a freak?

You know what, don’t answer that last question. I think I already know what you’re going to say…

Supernatural Picspam: The Pilot

So, I got bored. And apparently this is what happens when I get bored. I think it’s always best to start at the beginning of something. So here it is: the pilot of Supernatural, as explained by the ‘bee.

Friday’s photo (on Tuesday)


So I’m late again.  I always forget to post Friday’s photo on Friday.  And amelie reminded me about 200 times on Friday to post it (and about 300 times yesterday) and I STILL forgot.  Oops.  🙂  I’ll try to work on that. 

This was a Mother’s Day present for one of my friend’s moms.  I LOOOVED photographing these two little girls, they’re so dang cute.

I think I’m 12

because…well, a lot of reasons. My inner child hit 12 and decided she was happy there. She likes sticking her tongue out at her mother. She likes popping her gum and blowing big bubbles. No one can make her understand that farts aren’t funny. The words “hard” and “ball” make her giggle like a moron.

That right there is the main reason. I have the uncanny ability to take harmless phrases and turn them into something dirty. Just today, for example, kegger told me about some gopher that visited her at work. She ended with, “He’s hiding in our bushes.” And my inner twelve year old so went there.

A moment of silence

amelie and I have been loyal Ausholes–fans of TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello–for a while now. We get most of our spoilers from Ausiello’s blog and his weekly Ask Ausiello column. Last week, he announced that he’s leaving TV Guide and that he’s going to work at Entertainment Weekly.

We are beyond bummed. Ausiello’s Wednesday column is what got us through the day. It’s why we looked forward to Wednesdays. And now? What is there on Wednesdays now? Now it’s just plain old boring Hump Day.

I’ve got nothing against Entertainment Weekly (actually, I take that back. Their website is kind of horrendous), but I’m not a big fan of change, and I’m really sad about his move. Who’s going to take his place? And is he replacable? I kind of enjoyed reading about his Snapple & Smurf obsessions. I could be wrong–and I hope I am–but something tells me that he’s going to be harder to replace than expected.

So, amelie and I would like to dedicate a moment of silence to Ausiello. So long, Mike. We’ll miss our Wednesday spoiler fix. Please be just as awesome at Entertainment Weekly as you were at TV Guide!

The Supernatural Guide to Life

I’ve decided to take this summer to get started on shows I want to watch but don’t have time for during the regular season, beginning with Supernatural. I’m in the middle of season 1, but here are a few useful things I’ve learned so far from this delightfully demonic (and very…uh…attractive) show:

1. White nightgowns or dresses + blonde hair = you’re gonna die.
2. Whatever creepy thing is out there, it’s always behind you. IT’S ALWAYS BEHIND YOU.
3. Children are probably evil.
4. Never leave home without rock salt, holy water, a shotgun, a flare gun, a pistol, lighter fluid, and a lighter or matches. A false bottom in the trunk of your car can safely hide your anti-evil armory.
5. Seriously, dude. It’s behind you right now.
6. Faith healers cannot save one life without taking another. Cosmic balance and all that.
7. Ancient pagan traditions are all fun and games until people start dying at the hands of murderous scarecrows.
8. For the love of all that’s holy, pay attention to horror movies and don’t go into abandoned, haunted insane asylums/houses/cemeteries/etc.
9. Bugs suck. They suck and you should kill them before they kill you.
10. When the lights start flickering and go off for no apparent reason and when your clocks stop working, also for no apparent reason, there’s some bad jujumagumbo coming. And it’s probably behind you.
