Random Musings Friday…

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I don’t think I’ve meant it as much as I do this week…thank God it’s Friday!!!  Work has been kicking my ass for the last two weeks and for an assortment of reasons I’ve also been going to bed really late every night, so I’m exhausted.  I also have absolutely nothing to do tomorrow and plan to spend a good amount of the day lying around on the couch…I’m so excited!!!

Speaking of going to bed late…the reason I was up so late last night is because I was watching the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy.  OMG…was that not a crazy episode?  I was a freaking wreck…literally sitting on the edge of the couch and completely tense the whole time.  What a great season ender…I think the best one on that show so far!  Anyone else watch?

Now for this week’s random musings…

  • I am a huge fan of Rock of Love with Bret Michaels.  I’ve been a huge fan of his since they early days of Poison.  I thought he was pretty dreamy when I was a teenager.  Of course, now I think he’s sort of a douche, but in a very entertaining sort of way.  The thing is, I didn’t realize he was quite so popular.  I mean…he was on the cover of People last week and I think he was on Oprah this week or will be next week.  I always thought he was kind of a D-lister and now it’s like his brain hemorrhage caused him to become this major celebrity.  Or am I wrong and people loved him before this? 
  • Last night I checked the answering machine to find a message from the hospital calling to schedule J’s procedure.  The problem is that J failed to mention that he was having a procedure done.  In fact, he failed to mention that he’d even gone to the doctor.  This was all news to me.  To make things even more fun, he wasn’t home when I got the message and I had to wait two hours for him to come home and tell me what the hell was going on.  He’s lucky I didn’t kill him when he walked in the door.  Turns out it’s totally minor and something that I’ve been asking him to take care of.  He said he was going to tell me once he scheduled the appointment.  I still wanted to kill him for making me worry, but I was happy he was finally taking action.
  • My friend’s husband bought himself an Audi a few months back and that car is his baby.  He parks in two spots in the parking lot of their apartment building and he always parks in the furthest spot so he can be away from all other cars.  Well, the parking lot in their building has two levels and the other night another tenant was drunk and drove his car off the top level and right ON TOP of the Audi.  The good news is that the doors are still free of dings and scratches.  Plus, the car is now a convertible!
  • A woman on the bus stared at me during the whole trip this morning.  I was chatting with the driver and another passenger, as I do most mornings.  This woman who rarely takes the bus got on, sat right across from me and started staring.  I don’t know if I offended her with my chatting or what.  I am wearing a new necklace from Daisy and Elm so maybe she was just overwhelmed with the sheer beauty of it and couldn’t tear her eyes away.  I’m leaning more towards her being a freak though.
  • So excited for the Lost finale this weekend.  I watched the last two episodes yesterday and I cannot wait to find out how it is all going to end.  At the same time I’m so sad to see it go.  I’m going to have to find a new show to obsess over next season…any suggestions?

That’s it for me this week.  I’m going to get to work and hopefully the day will fly by and I’ll be on the train home before I even know it!  I wish everyone a happy and relaxing weekend!


  1. OMG. I was not going to watch the Grey’s finale last night b/c I watched The Office and didn’t want to stay up late. But I watched the first 10 minutes and got hooked and ended up staying up really late. I swear I was having heart palpitations the whole time. That was a crazy episode but really good. Also reallllllly excited about LOST.

  2. Ugh. Again. You are too compelling with your random musings and now I have like 82 comments.

    1. I love Bret. Always have. He was getting big again with Rock of Love but also on Celebrity Apprentice. I think that’s why he is getting so much attention, because he is currently on that show.

    I will die. DIE. If anything happens to him. The name Bret Michaels is said and I immediately morph back into a 13 year old.

    2. Probs because you’re weird. I would stare, too. 😉

    3. Never watched Grey’s but Twitter was exploding about it. And I am also excoted for Lost.

    4. Jealous of your free day tomorrow.

  3. You’ve got to get us pictures of the Audi!

  4. I am also in pre-mourning for Lost. I am so excited for Sunday, but also never want it to come, because that mean no more Lost.
    I am consoling myself with Glee – but I’m a musical theatre geek.

  5. Oh yeah, I vote for Glee too. I’m obsessed.

    I loved Poison, but never kept up with Bret after that. I did think he was sort of washed up, no offense to the fans, and figured he was jumping on the reality bandwagon so many of his peers have the past several years. He still looks pretty much the same, I’ll give him that!

    I guess I’d never survive in NYC, because around here if someone stares, I ask them if there’s something I can do for them. Loaded question, I know! But only if they’re being blatant or rude, like staring and not smiling or eavesdropping. I never get offended if they’re goofy. :)

    After the second season of Lost, I got so random with viewing. I’ve skipped around and really have no freaking clue what’s going on. But, I’m still going to watch it tonight because I don’t want to miss out, you know?

  6. YOU WON the Chocolate! Email me with the address you’d like me to send the gift certificate to! :-)

  7. I am with Monique – I love Brett. Maybe not as much as she does. When all the Hair Metal was reallllly popular (first time around, not like it is now) I was still way into NKOTB and I didn’t like boys with long hair. Hit FF to my teens and I discovered Metallica and that I liked boys with long hair I went back into the archives and dug up as much metal and 80’s hair bands stuff I could find and fell in love. This is when I started like Brett – an era a bit too late until the 80’s started to come back. I am obsessed with Rock of Love – But aside from Jesse the first season I was never a fan of his choices.

    The Audi story made me laugh so loud my boyfriend heard me OVER his video game in the living room. Sorry about his car but judging by his behavior to avoid it being hurt I’d say it was only a matter of time before something horrible like this happened or that someone keyed his ride. I hope he had great insurance!

  8. I have always liked Poison and Bret Michaels especially but not in a fan-girl, I-have-pics-of-him-all-over-my-locker kind of way. All these years later, however, I find myself really rooting for the guy. He was great on Celebrity Apprentice (soooo happy he won!) and I loved him on Rock of Love even though that was probably not the best depiction of his character. But he just seems so genuine and sweet somehow.

    OMG, that SUCKS about your friend’s hubby’s Audi! What sh** luck, huh??
