Hit or Miss? 11:59 PM
What do ya'll think, did Sandra Bullock get it right or wrong?
I give her a C+. The color scheme is good, but that's about it. It kind of fits her funny in the middle, and if you click on the "detail" at the top, you can see how shoulder-paddy it looks. Um, Sandra, it's not 1984 and feathers are almost always a "don't." Cute clutch, though!

Weekend W(h)ine 11:25 PM
Here at Smartini, we know to be grateful for what we have. But, sometimes you just have to w(h)ine. It helps to vent, right? So let’s make a running list of complaints, Just Because. I’ll start:
- I loathe that my sciatica has returned. Constant shooting pains from tailbone down through thigh, completely out of nowhere. Literally: a pain in the ass. It’s a hangover from pregnancy, but hello, not pregnant, haven’t been for over 2 years. It’s an unproductive pain, and completely unfair.
- While I love my day job, I hate that most of the time when I step away to use the bathroom, 1-2 children begin wailing as though the world has come to an end. It’s! The! Bathroom! I’ll be back in just a freaking minute.
- It kills me that my husband’s side work, which is inconsistent at best, but helpful, income-wise, sucks so much that he has to quit. That level of frustration is just not worth it. But still. Money. Ugh, I hate it. I hate the lack thereof, the constant scrambling. Such a nuisance.
- I need a break. From work, mainly, but when I say work, I mean not just the paying stuff, but the actual 24/7 job of raising two children. I guess that’s not so much a possibility, is it. I’m just…tired.
Okay, there’s a solid list of unsolicited complaints. Now, add your own and let’s make this a party!

Seriously, ya'll. I hate to say it, but I'm gonna need a photo because how the hell is that even possible?

To quote one of my favorite someecards, "Happy Birthday Andi! If you ever disappeared while hiking, I'd remain in the search party until it started raining." That's true friendship and love, ya'll.
Sorry, didn't mean to get all sappy on the blog. Perhaps this is more appropriate, "I don't remember or card how old you are, but let's celebrate like you're 21!"
Join me in toasting Andi - one of our top 5 favorite Smartini barmaids - and leave your well wishes (and maybe someecard quotes/links?) in the comments below!

Cold Glass, Blue Moon 10:45 AM
On New Year’s Eve 2009 (tonight!), there will be a so-called blue moon. It won’t be blue. And really, the definition of “blue moon” evolved from an error. But, it is a full moon. On a night of worldwide partying. Do you believe in the power of full moons? I always kind of have; aren’t people just a little wackier? Children act more wired and sleep less. I for one had a bizarre series of strange/bad dreams last night. I’ve heard that more car accidents occur on the night of a full moon. Among other oddities.
I offer these thoughts not as forewarning, but more as contemplation or speculation. Wonder if the ringing in of a new year and a new decade will have a little more… flavor than usual. Perhaps we’ll discuss in the morning. In the meantime, everyone have lots of fun and be safe tonight! Cheers!
