This is me trying to be positive

Unless you've landed here for the first time, you know that even on a good day I'm secretly plotting the demise of anybody who annoys me. So you can imagine what I'm like now, right?  Well, this is me thinking happy thoughts.

Some Happy Thoughts to Lower My Blood Pressure

My trip to Boise on Mother's Day weekend.  Mom is always good for a laugh and Stepdaddy always stocks up on Moose Drool when he knows I'm coming to town. That's a beer, in case you didn't know.

The Galaxy Luxury Theater in Green Valley Recliners... craft beer... and they will kick your ass out of the theater if you dare to touch your cell phone during the movie. Mike and I saw The Place Beyond the Pines there last Friday night.  The movie is set in Schenectady, where I worked during the Summer of 2010, and it was also filmed there.  While it was cool to see some local sites, the film itself was horrible (and looooong).  But still, you can't beat watching even a crappy movie like this:

Kumare It's a real movie about a fake guru, the best I've seen in a long time. Absolutely fantastic and available on Netflix.  This one I can recommend, especially if you're into yoga and holistic shit.  You'll still like it even if you're not. Don't miss it.

My weight this morning.  I was 139.8. Still 5 pounds away from my goal, but I'm getting there.  Maybe a little stress is good for you after all.

The Rising.  This Bruce Springsteen tribute band is coming to the House of Blues on July 10. You know me and tribute bands.

My friend Warren's visit to Vegas.  I met Warren a year and a half ago on a Southwest flight from Albany to Vegas and we've been friends ever since.  We get together every time I go to Albany or when he comes here.  Looking forward to seeing my pal the week of May 13.  

The trip I have planned with my grandson, Connor.  I want to take that kid so many places this summer, but I'm leaning toward LA. My dear friend Nina is a tour guide there and I'm hoping she'll be able to show us around--she definitely knows all the hot spots and houses of the stars that will impress him.  Plus, what 14-year-old doesn't want to cruise up the Pacific Coast Highway with his granny?

Hazel's recent overnight crank call rampage.  I talked to my first ex, Chris, last night and he said he recently got a call at 2:43 a.m. from Courtney.  Now, when your phone rings at that hour you naturally suspect a situation involving flashing lights, but evidently our 3-year-old granddaughter just had a case of insomnia and swiped her mother's phone while her parents slept.  Seems a couple of Courtney's friends were also greeted with a "Hi! Hi!" in the middle of the night.  Oh, how precious!

Happy Hour today with a blogging buddy.  We get together every so often for sausage rolls at an Irish pub and it's always a fun time.  Aw, sausage rolls... I'll be back in the 140s tomorrow.  Damn.

Well, that's about all I have right now.  Thanks for listening.  It's always nice to know you're out there.

Just read your 2013 entries. All of them. CRAP, what a year. And good God, I know what it is to be a stepmother, all the work and worry without the authority or recognition (what little any mother gets) ... not even the freaking holiday. And when something runs amok with one of the kids ...
Anyway, you didn't do have bad with the "being positive."
