Random Musings Friday…

Happy Friday!  Of course, we all walked around the office yesterday thinking it was already Friday.  One of my co-workers wished my boss a good vacation (he’s leaving Sunday night) and he got really confused at the premature bon voyage.  I am very much looking forward to this weekend…I will be spending a good deal of time rug shopping.  I’m going to end the arguments once and for all.  Now…on to this week’s random musings…

  • I thought the Twitter handle search was over, but alas, it continues.  Ally suggested I use Shananagins…which is actually J’s nickname for me.  I loved the idea and typed it in…only to find it’s already taken.  So the process continues.  However, I will decide by the end of the day and I will be on Twitter by this weekend.  Maybe my first tweets will be during the great rug search of 2011!
  • Speaking of J’s nicknames for me…over the past ten years I’ve had several.  For a while I was Mony, Mony…you know, because of my last name.  After we started dating, he called me Pookie.  Then for a while…and for no reason I could ever come up with…he called me Swish.  For a while, he had me listed in his cell phone as Toni…again, for reasons that I could not fathom, but that he found hilarious.  More recently, the nickname of choice was Banana.  But then is became Shananagins.  At least he’s able to amuse himself. 
  • The best nickname J ever came up with…Crazy Train.  Here’s the rational behind it…the person he called Crazy Train was extremely selfish.  The song Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne the first line of lyrics is Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay…which J interpreted as I, I, I, I, I, I, I and instead of calling her selfish to her face…he called her Crazy Train.  Isn’t he so clever?  He thinks so.
  • The shredder in my office is right next to my desk…and it’s really loud.  Without fail our admin assistant decides to shred things while I’m on the phone.  The other day, right in the middle of a conference call, she decided to shred a whole pile of stuff.  When I hung up the phone she said “Does it bother you when I shred while you are on the phone?  It must be really loud.”  Um, yeah…it is really loud.  Thank God you waited until AFTER I got off the phone to ask me that.
  • Have you guys seen Jill Zarin’s face lately? (For those who don’t know, Jill Zarin is one of the Real Housewives of NY.)  Girlfriend has had some MAJOR plastic surgery…and she looks terrible.  She looked so much better before.  The funniest part of the whole thing is that she’s totally denying it.  You know what you can deny?  Botox.  You know what’s a little more obvious?  A nosejob.  Come clean Jill…it’s too obvious to deny it.  Even if you don’t watch RHONY, check out the photos here.
  • I read something that Kimora Lee Simmons gave an interview and attributed her weight loss to not eating.  She actually said “I don’t eat”.  What a jerk.  Now some teenager is going to read that and think starving is the answer to weight loss.  Brilliant. 
  • Zsa Zsa Gabor is going to be a mom again…at 94.  I’m thinking of sending that article to my doctor and telling her that I’m clearly not to old to have children and she should get off my back.  Because obviously I have 59 years left!  People are seriously crazy.

Alright…I’d better get back to work because the faster I get all the work done today, the sooner I get the hell out of here. 

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!


  1. I also thought yesterday was Friday – which was infuriating since I leave for holidays on Saturday.
    What a bummer.
    When you do get on the Twat (oh, that sounded wrong…), look me up – @imfojoy

  2. I’m afraid to click on that link. Plastic surgery gone wrong gives me nightmares! And Kimora Lee, or is it just Kimora, or does she only go by the full name? Regardless she’s a dipshit!

  3. My whole office thought yesterday was Friday too – seriously these similarities are getting weird. I do not watch the Real Housewives of anywhere (I tried one day for about 10 minutes and I don’t get it) but I did click on the link – she looks WAY worse. She looks a little bit like a drag queen now.
    I was discussing your twitter name options with a friend who secretly reads you and we agreed that if you are going to become a famous blogger you need to keep your twitter name as close to your blog name as possible. Branding honey! You get 15 characters for your username if that helps. Happy weekend!

  4. Ooh I like Shananigans. Too bad it’s taken. My husband has a bunch of weird nicknames for me some of which make no sense. Kimora Lee=Dumb. And what is this Zsa Zsa Gabor thing? Is this a joke?

  5. I am only just now seeing these before/after Jill pics! What a shame! I used to be such a big fan of hers, but she seems to have really changed lately (not just externally). She looked way better before. If you’re going to get that amount of noticeable work done, at least own up to it!

    I don’t even have words for Kimora.

    Hope you were able to figure out the Twitter snafu. Sucks that name was already taken, that would have been cute!

    Did you find any rugs this weekend?

  6. If Kimmora doesn’t eat then I will eat forever… She might be “faux skinny” but that woman’s neck is SO gross! If you haven’t fixated on it before you will now!

    Good luck w/ the name search – maybe you could still do the awesome nickname just add your favorite number to the end?
