I Love You Devil Cookies!

These are the best store bought cookies in the world. We call them devil cookies because they're so good it isn't natural. Find them, buy them, consume them!

Just Another Day

It's a holiday, but to me it's just another day. Except the tv programs I would normally watch are absent. Geoff has gone into work for a few hours, and though i have the car, I don't really have anyplace I want to go. If I had brought the stroller with me when we drove to Geoff's work, I'd be at Peet's now with my caramel freddo and a book. :)

I watched Ken Jennings get beat on Jeopardy's best of the best of the best (sir! with honors). The thing was I found that two of the final Jeopardy questions were things I knew. Also the double Jeopardy seemed easier than the first round. I did dismally in the bible category they had. I knew the answers, I just couldn't get them out, save one. Don't feel bad for your favorite mormon Jeopardy winner, Ken is getting his own game show. It'll be like Win Ben Stein's Money, so it may not be that bad.

Geoff and I are super duper bummed that we'll be missing Ryan & Kana's wedding. It's on the day we fly home from Calgary. We can't move our flight plans, it was the only day we both could fly home together. I know it will be a wonderful special day, and hopefully Ryan will post pictures. And we'll celebrate with them when we make it out to Irvine. Congratulations you two!

Well, I'm going to sign off now. I'll close with a quote from Conspiracy Theory.

Jerry Fletcher: A good conspiracy is unprovable. I mean, if you can prove it, it means they screwed up somewhere along the line.

I remembered!

I remembered yesterday that thing I wanted to post:

If you play Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon to The Muppet's Wizard Of Oz, does it make sense? :)

Let it be said my biggest pet peeve, or at least the thing that peeves me off more than anything is bad drivers. I've had my share of bad drivers. In less than 24 hours, I have encountered two drivers who didn't give a lick about me and my stroller being in the crosswalk. Yesterday one driver plowed through a stop sign while I was in the middle of the road, and today a driver actually clipped the stroller's back wheel. Geoff chased that guy half a block, and would have continued and caught him had we known he was going to be stopped at the next light. The thing is there a cop right there, but he didn't see it, he was looking for speeders. I was so angry that this guy clipped the stroller, I didn't stop being mad for the next hour. I just can't believe some people! Everyone is fine, we were very lucky.

My new beverage of choice this summer is Peet's Caramel Freddo. It is divine!

I'm so happy my 100 things (see previous posts) has spurned Athena & Geoff to do their own. It takes some time to do, but it's so much fun to learn new things about people. Lisa says she'll try to tackle it.

No plans for the long weekend, just hopefully spending some family time together. So I'm going to go spend time with my family now, and close with a quote from Stripes (which is on right now).

John Winger: We're all very different people. We're not Watusi, we're not Spartans, we're Americans. With a capital "A", huh? And you know what that means? Do you? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts.

Wednesday, May 25, 2005


I'm getting really tired of the rush to publish "news" that people can't wait to verify if it's even true. I've come to expect that all stories have a retraction written at the same time as the story. People are so riled up by the story, they don't even hear that there is a retraction and apology.

I think I may need to keep a notebook on my person at all times, because I said something witty on Sunday and wanted to post it. Now I can't recall it, and wonder if it was even very witty. :)

The Queen was walking around my old stomping grounds yesterday (the legislative grounds). I would have loved to have seen that. How many people can say they've seen royalty in person? Perhaps if I'm ever near her stomping grounds, we'll hook up for tea.

Well, I don't have much else to say. So I'll close with a quote from The Addams Family.

Girl Scout: Is this made from real lemons?
Wednesday: Yes.
Girl Scout: I only like all-natural foods and beverages, organically grown, with no preservatives. Are you sure they're real lemons?
Pugsley: Yes.
Girl Scout: I'll tell you what. I'll buy a cup if you buy a box of my delicious Girl Scout cookies. Do we have a deal?
Wednesday: Are they made from real Girl Scouts?

Fun With Names

Thanks to Athena for posting this:

Melissa June Armstrong's Aliases

Your movie star name: Chips John

Your fashion designer name is Melissa Glasgow

Your socialite name is Miska San Francisco

Your fly girl / guy name is M Arm

Your detective name is Giraffe McNally

Your barfly name is Chips Margarita

Your soap opera name is June Kirkpatrick

Your rock star name is Aero Cheetah

Your star wars name is Melhon Armgeo

Your punk rock band name is The Contentment Headphones


I'm such a dummy! I hadn't opened up my calendar since Monday, so I completely forgot that today was our lamaze class reunion! I really wanted to go too, to hear about how everyone's babies are. To show off our little cutie. Well, nothing to be done. I realized it 30 minutes after it started, so with the 30 minute drive out there, we would have missed it. Obviously I need to set up alarms for all my important dates.

Geoff is out on a big long run, he's training to run in a half marathon next month. I don't know if we'll go hang out there or not, it's at the Pepsi Center. I guess an option would be to take the light rail into downtown, hang out there and go back to see him finish. Who knows!

We went to the farmer's market today, and we were a little disappointed. There was only one produce stand, and the lettuce looked sad. Geoff did buy some tomatoes, but I couldn't convince him to buy me beef jerky.

I guess I'll sign off. I'm closing with a quote from Beetlejuice.

Adam: What are your qualifications?
Betelgeuse: Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?

Hot And Not

It's really hot here, we've hit the 90's (that's 30's for you Celsius readers). God bless air conditioning.

And unlike everyone I know, we won't be going out to see the new Star Wars movie. I'm not really a fan, or rather I'm not fanatical like half the planet. No reason, I just don't care.

I want to address something that has been bugging me for a while. This isn't aimed at one person, but several people. Geoff is fine. He isn't to skinny, he does not have any problems physically. He eats well, and he enjoys exercising. He is healthy, and happy with the way he looks. So please stop suggesting he's too thin. As his wife, I would never allow him to get unhealthy, or allow him to jeopardize his health. His weight is just right for his height.

I'm sorry to those who might find that offensive, but as a protective wife, it's my right to express how I feel. I'd rather address this now before we go see family and friends, so that maybe I won't have to hear about it. And maybe I shouldn't apologize for offending people. Sometimes I feel like I'm always apologizing for expressing my thoughts. To the point now where I censor myself daily.

I had a frustrating day yesterday, so once dinner was done, I asked Geoff to take Elijah for a walk so I could have some alone time. I read my bible, and wrote in the journal that Kelly bought me in Thailand. The boys came home with a dozen pink roses for me. It was so very sweet, and completely unexpected. I've been smelling them all day. It was just as nice as the time I got alone to myself.

Well, parenthood calls. No plans for this weekend, except maybe checking out the farmer's market at Cherry Creek Mall.

I'll close with my favorite quote from The Emperor's New Groove.

Pacha: Uh-oh.
Kuzco: Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.
Pacha: Yep.
Kuzco: Sharp rocks at the bottom?
Pacha: Most likely.
Kuzco: Bring it on.

Opportunity Knocks...Can't Answer

The opportunity to have Rich's job for the summer has popped back up, and even though all the volunteers were hoping I'd be back, it's just not going to happen. The reasons? #1-my permission to work is going to expire next week, and I don't have the $120 to renew it. #2-childcare. Hiring a babysitter would suck up the money I would make. #3-remembering how much some volunteers drove me batty. So yeah, the money would have been awesome, and I'm sorry that everyone was looking forward to working with me, but it isn't going to happen. I will renew my work permission in a few months, in time to go back to Harry & David. Besides, I love spending time with Elijah, and I love having flexible days to do what I want (or have to).

I did get in touch with Mary, that's how I found out what the deal was with Rich's summer job. We're going to get together on Thursday. We'll be going to the museum picnic and zoo trip next month. She'll be bringing her kids, and they've been dying to see Elijah. That will be fun.

Well, nothing else is going on. So I'll sign off and close with a quote from Return To Me.

Tyler Dayton: And then we went to see the gorillas and Mommy said it was you.
Megan Dayton: I did not.
Joe Dayton: Oh, really? Did you go to see the elephants?
Megan Dayton: Watch it Joe.

How I Spent My Weekend

I am so ashamed (and yet I will blog about it) that I spent my Saturday watching the America's Next Top Model marathon on VH1. I left the house only to get the mail. I did miss 90 minutes of it when I took a nap, but other than that...

And I can't say anything bad about it. It was kinda cheesy, but I was riveted. You could easily turn it into a drinking game because there are lines that are repeated over and over again.

Friday we walked mall to pick up Geoff's glasses, and then treated ourselves to Coldstone Creamery. Today we went to Peet's after church, then spent the day inside with the air conditioning on. Geoff took care of Elijah, and I was able to do some organizing in the closet.

I don't have any big plans for this week. Elijah has a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning, and I may try to get together with Mary this week (if she'll return my phone calls).

I have become addicted to a new show, Judging Amy. Reruns air on TNT, and Hallmark so I've gotten hooked. I don't watch the new episodes, I'm content to stay in the past. :) It's a pretty good show, though it deals with some pretty serious subject matter.

I got an email this weekend from a friend (Eddy) I had at Harry Ainlay. I will try to write back this week, and find out if he kept in touch with Adam. I found it a little funny, I was only at Harry Ainlay for a year, so the fact that I was remembered is impressive to me. I'm always impressed when people remember me, as I don't ever think I could make an impression on someone. I kinda blended in back in high school, with the exception of my circle of friends. It was a very small circle of friends at Harry Ainlay, but I was Adam's date to his grad. That was a fun night, I remember that they served lemon sorbet and it was tasty.

I'm looking into things I may want to do in Edmonton, Calgary & Banff. One thing I used to always to do was catch a Captain Tractor show, but I don't think late nights are for me anymore. I'd feel weird getting someone to babysit Elijah so I can go out to a show. My time should probably be spent visiting with family & friends. The last Tractor show I caught in Edmonton was in Churchill Square in July 2002. It was awesome. Meghan, Susie & I met up with Doug & Kirsty. I got my picture taken with Brock after the show, then we took the LRT to University and walked down Whyte all the way to Bonnie Doon Mall. Ahhh, good times, good times.

Anyways, I want to go to Melissa's in Banff for lunch, and maybe try to check out Bow Falls too. If the gondola wasn't so expensive, I'd consider that as an option. I have no idea what I want to do in Calgary, maybe go to Calaway Park. My dad loved taking us there, it holds a special place.

Well, I'm going to sign off and close with a quote from Hackers.

Mrs. Murphy: Dade?
Dade Murphy: Yeah, ma?
Mrs. Murphy: What are you doing?
Dade Murphy: I'm taking over a TV network.
Mrs. Murphy: Finish up, honey, and get to sleep.

A Really Good Cause

I meant to write about this last week, but completely forgot until I chatted with Ryan today. KUCI is in the midst of their annual fund drive. They need this money to run the station for a year. It's tax-deductable, it's a good cause, and you can get some great thank you gifts. So please consider donating. Every little bit helps.


I don't put much faith in superstitions, though I know many people who do. Though I won't walk under a ladder, I don't believe something bad will befall me if I do. I think this one is funny, If you have 13 letters in your name, you will have the devil's luck. The date is not going to keep me from leaving the house.

Geoff is working a half day, then we'll head out to the mall to pick up his glasses. We'll also stop in at Harry & David to see Kevin and Nicole. I imagine we'll go to Peet's too.

Thanks to Roland for bringing to my attention that Wendy's is giving away free jr. frostys all weekend! Whoo-hoo! We live within walking distance of a Wendy's! Too bad the offer isn't available in Canada.

Because there are some deals you just can't pass up...we bought The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide for $10.19 from Even with shipping, it was cheaper than Barnes & Noble was selling it for. And we found out last night Barnes & Noble stopped selling it at the discounted price. Now I'll be able to read past the third book. Regarding the movie, we will likely rent it, since we don't go out to movies. I don't trust all reviews, frankly there are times I think I will enjoy something and I am disappointed.

Well, I should get out of my jammies at some point. I hope you all get the chance to listen to Stevie Wonder's Superstition today. Or even Stevie Ray Vaughn's version. :)

I'll close with a quote from Scream. I was so happy it was on the other day, they always show Scream 2, and I like the first one much more.

Tatum: Oh, please don't kill me, Mr. Ghostface, I wanna be in the sequel!

How Canadian Are You?

Here's your score: 92

Wow. Pierre Berton, Peter Gzowski, Stompin' Tom, Pierre Trudeau, Bob & Doug, Anne of Green Gables and Rush all rolled into one. You make Dudley Do-Right look like Uncle Sam. Prepare for immediate idolization at home and a lucrative career in the states.

Tuesday, May 10, 2005

I got a bill in the mail this week for a doctor's visit from June 2004. This appointment was suppose to be covered, I checked before hand because it was to see the fertility specialist. My doctor referred me, and I checked with her and the insurance. So I've complained and they are going to get back to me. The manager will call in the next 24-48 hours. And I'll be asking him/her why they would wait 11 months to bill me. It's not like we're quibbling over a few dollars, it's $185. The funny thing is we didn't need to progress with the fertility specialist, we got pregnant before we had to go any further past the initial blood work.

Mother's Day was pretty good. Geoff was kinda grumpy most of the day, but the steak dinner was yummy. I got some phone calls and some cards (both paper & electronic).

We finally got our A/C fixed, and I couldn't be happier. Our apartment gets pretty warm, but not like the Irvine place did. People don't think Denver gets so hot, but it does.

I gotta put a question out into the void...why is Gwen Stefani singing about bananas in her song Hollaback Girl? Geoff thinks it's great, but he's always liked bananas and he's always had a thing for Gwen.

I'm a bad friend. I called Lisa in Vancouver this morning, and woke her up. It was 8 o'clock her time, I figured she'd be awake. She gets back today, and she said she'll call me tomorrow.

Scrubs season finale is on tonight. And next Tuesday the season one dvd comes out. I'm hoping to get it for Christmas. Until then, I'll have to make due with summer re-runs.

Not much else is going on. We've gotten Elijah's passport sent off, and Geoff sent off his info to renew his Canadian passport. He could tell you forever about what a stupid pain in the butt the whole process is. My passport is still good until 2008, then I can go through that trouble.

Well, I'm gonna close with a quote from The Princess Bride.

Vizzini: I can't compete with you physically, and you're no match for my brains.
Westley: You're that smart?
Vizzini: Let me put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?
Westley: Yes.
Vizzini: Morons.

Your Mother Was A Hamster
Happy Mother's Day!
Here is a picture of my gift from Elijah. Just gonna spend the day doing chores and hanging out. Geoff is making me steak for dinner. A pretty good first Mother's Day. :)

Well That's New

I've never had such a good dentist appointment before. The hygenist was very nice (Jane), and the dentist seems like an alright guy. And for the first time cavities! So my teeth are all nice and clean, and I'm set to go back in 6 months. The office is just up on Colorado Blvd, so it's a short walk there. And lucky Geoff, he gets to go tomorrow.

He is lucky, because Elijah was good for him this morning. I hope he'll be a good boy tomorrow as we go get his passport photo taken. I'm a little worried he may fall asleep on the walk to Sears, I want him to stay awake so it will be easier to get him to be good for the photographer. Then we need to get his passport application filled out and sent, since we leave for Alberta in 46 days.

Caught the strangest show on Cartoon Network on Sunday night. Robot Chicken. I don't know if the fact that it is on at 12:30am makes it funnier or not. But it's a little messed up, and a little funny at the same time. Kinda has some inside jokes, and they jokes come fast.

Gotta go be a mom, so I'll close with a quote from Kids In The Hall.

Filipino kid: You are American?
Tourist: No, I'm a Canadian. It's like an American, but without the gun.

Tuesday, May 03, 2005

I'm always amazed on how I can function on little sleep. I'm not happy about it, and I'm probably not quite myself, but I'm functional. Sunday night Elijah was up EVERY hour. Had we not had appointments to donate blood Monday morning, I don't think we would have gone. The Bonfils blood center was awesome. The staff was nice, the donation chairs are the best, and the snacks were good too. We're eligible to donate again at the end of June, but since we'll be in E-town, we'll donate once we get back.

Family Guy returned to tv on Sunday night, and in top form. The first 5 minutes were hilarious and it just kept on going.

My results from the Cherry Creek Sneak are not on the web, because I didn't bring my number with me to the race (I didn't know I was suppose to). They took Geoff's info from him though he forgot his number too, so his info is available. But there is a picture of me in the race.

I doubt I'd order it, since Geoff took a picture of me. We're hoping one of him shows up, since I missed him crossing the finish line. I do have one of him before the race started.

The baked spaghetti turned out excellent, it was very tasty. I used some directions from a few different recipes, and was very pleased with the results. It inspired Geoff to make his own dish last night, it was rotini pasta with chicken in an a la king type sauce.

Well, it's looking to be a beautiful day out, so I'm going to go for a walk with the boy. Up to Target, then hitting the bank and the library on my way home.

I'll close with a quote from Overboard.

Annie: I don't belong here, I feel it, don't you think I feel it. I can't do any of these vile things and I wouldn't WANT to. Oh, my life is like death. My children are the spawn of hell, and you're the devil. Oh God.
Dean Proffitt: But baby, we LIKE you.
