D'OH! We totally forgot we had something to do today...
As we were getting ready to head out the door for our DC Fun Day... we got a phone call from the technicians who are hooking our televisions up to Neilsen ratings boxes. Damn, we totally spaced out on that... =B
So, as of today, we are an Oh-ficial Neilsen Family lol which is funny because we get three channels with our rabbit ears on the tv downstairs, which we watch maybe once every four months for about 30 minutes. The upstairs tv is hooked up to either the DVD player or a game console. But it's still $50 every 6 months I think *shrug* so let 'em gather their data. It won't be much =)

It's so nice and brisk today - in the 40s - it really feels wintery! I'm loving it (though I wish I could find some thermal pants to wear, my buttcheeks is so chilly!). We are going to go down to Washington DC today, visit the National Zoo and hopefully see the panda and cheetah cubs *crosses fingers* Always a sure bet for entertainment is the Great Ape house. I loves me the gorillas. For some reason the big silver backs make me feel especially sad though. They look so bored and demeaned... you can see it in their eyes... =/ I know the zookeepers take really good care of them all, but it is just no comparison to being in the wild (even though it is probably much safer for them and they live much longer). 
Afterwards, we are going to Georgetown to meet my Dad who is coming in from Paris this afternoon, and my Aunt and Uncle (the other half of my liver heheh) for dinner. Matt and I have vowed not to eat anything today until dinner - when we anticipate eating our weight in steak. *burp*

Well, we scrapped t he idea of going to Manhattan for Evil Dead the musical - we just don't have that much money! BUT, Wicked is coming to Baltimore YAY! We missed out on the Washington DC engagement last year - tickets were sold out in a day or two. Looks like tickets are just as hot this year. I was looking on Ticketmaster and seats available one minute were gone the next! So I panicked and got us two seats for Feb. 18th. =) It'll be a happy Valentine's outing for us I guess!

In my dream last night, Matt was leaving for work. After I heard the door open and close, I went downstairs and saw the backdoor was open. I looked out at our backyard, which was all grey/black and ominous and dripping with something black and oily, but I saw no one out there nor heard any sounds. After I closed the door, I noticed the door to the basement was open now. I walked down the steps, made it halfway down and WHAM I got hit in the face with a 2X4 or something. I fall down and it's still sitting on my face, obstructing my vision, but I hear a man say, "Bitch."
And that's it. =/

We went horseback riding yesterday afternoon - my third time, and Matt's first. It was soooo gorgeous out in the woods, just a perfect day. My horse was nice and obliging, but Matt's had a mind of it's own. Choosing it's own path and refusing to trot. Stubborn thing! Matt even suspects the thing was trying to brush him off with trees and branches. Hmmm... maybe! lol My rear end is a little sore from bouncing in the saddle, but I think it's something we will definitely do again... hopefully with a more agreeable horse for Matt. ^_^

The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are this year's {2005} winners:

1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

2. Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

3. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

4. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

5. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

6.Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid.

7. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

8. Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.

9. Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.

10. Hipatitis: Terminal coolness.

11. Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)

12. Karmageddon: It's like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's like, a serious bummer dude.

13. Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.

14. Glibido: All talk and no action.

15. Dopeler effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

16. Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web.

17. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morn ing and cannot be cast out.

I did this a couple of years ago, and if you haven't already done so, you should sign up, too. Unless you love talking to telemarketers...

Got this email from my local comic book shop - and if anyone fits the bill, they should contact him at ShelmanR@aol.com - who knows, you might be on tv! =D

If anyone is interested, just let me know.

ABC TV SEARCH FOR COMIC BOOK FAMILIES

Casting for ABC TV's Wife Swap new prime time fall season is now under way, and we'd love to cast a family of comic book enthusiasts!

I’m hoping you will consider referring any families who share an active interest in comic books. All families featured on the show receive a $20,000 honorarium. Potential families can live anywhere in the continental United States and should consist of two parents who have at least one child, age 6 or older, living at home.


The premise of Wife Swap is that one parent from each household swaps places for a week to experience how another family lives. It is an incredible family opportunity to both learn and teach different family values. The New York Post says, "It should be called ‘Life Swap’ because it's not just the wives who learn something here. It's the families."



Thank you,

Meghan McGinley
Casting Associate Producer
ABC Television's "Wife Swap"/RDF Media
