New Uglys

Yay! I have 2 new additions to my ugly army! Oops, I mean to my ugly collection, not army.

Meet Chuckanucka:
Ok, you know what? Chuckanucka. That's what. Chuckanucka worries about pretty much everything under the sun: What if the phone rings when I go out? What if the mailman tries to deliver my Deluxe Ugly Earmuffs when I'm in the bathroom? Hey, I don't remember leaving the closet door open just a crack like that! What if I can't ever stop thinking about my name over and over? Chuckanucka has a pretty strange way of looking at life. Sometimes he wonders if this is all just a hologram, and on other days he wonders what's going to happen if they stop making CD players... How will I play my favorite CDs??? I have over nine of them!!! Poor Chuckanucka. Lucky Chuckanucka.

Meet Moxy:

Moxy’s got a lot of moxy. She’s a real get up and go Ugly, with far more energy that her older brother Ox. Moxy’s favorite activity seems to be bouncing off the walls and jumping in and out of mischief. Her giant antenna are always on the look out for a good time, and she can hear a party from miles away. She could hear you coming from all the way back over there! Are you a party animal? NO? Would you like to take care of one? No? Well that’s Ok because Moxy is here to take care of you. She can take care of pretty much any problem you may have…it’s a gift of hers. For example, see how messy your room is? No problem! See? Moxy is on your side.

My Dwight Schrute Bobble Head!

Today is a very special day folks! I have my new Dwight Schrute bobble head on my desk! I am so excited - I love it! I can't stop flicking his head and watching him bobble! I am sure my office mate is getting sick of the tink, tink, tink noise.

Here's a funny story.
A few weeks ago a bunch of us were at the original seed (it's a bar) and Bri was talking about how this guy at her office has a Dwight bobble head. I didn't even know they existed so I asked her to find out where he got it so I could get one too. DK said something to Bri and then she and I went outside for a few minutes. When we came back in DK was like "did you tell her that I got her the Dwight bobble head?" Bri looked surprised and I was so happy! Yay - there was a Dwight bobble head on order just for me! I love Dwight's character so much - he is so incredibly funny! Once I almost peed my pants because I was laughing so hard at him! My Dwight bobble head was on back order because they are SO FREAKING AWESOME that everyone wants one, but last night a box came from NBC! Yay - thanks DK!

Suprise, suprise, suprise

Yes, I still watch the Real World. I think watching it makes me feel normal and like I am a respectable citizen.

From the AP:

'Real World' cast member arrested in Conn.

CROMWELL, Conn. - A cast member on MTV's "The Real World" was arraigned on a misdemeanor assault charge after police said she bit her boyfriend during a domestic dispute.

Paula Ann Meronek, 25, allegedly bit her boyfriend several times when he refused to let her into their home early Sunday morning, police said.

"I think it was an argument that led to one thing then another," said Cromwell Police Chief Anthony Salvatore. "He attempted to keep her from the house. It got physical and we were contacted."

Meronek, who was arraigned Monday, was charged with third-degree assault, which carries a potential penalty of a year in prison. She is due back in court Aug. 11. No lawyer was listed in court documents.

Her boyfriend, John Alyward, was charged with disorderly conduct. The arrest was first reported by The Middletown Press.

"The Real World," now in its 17th season, puts seven strangers together in an exotic locale — this time in a Key West, Fla., beach house.

George Cabico, a spokesman for the show's producers, said filming is complete and the arrest will not affect the show.

A Vegetarian in Love

As many of you know I don’t eat any meat or seafood and haven’t since I was a kid. This is a bit of an issue because I don’t know how to cook any meat and the few times I have tried the outcome has been disastrous! I have never cooked pork in my life except once when I put some bacon in the microwave for DK for birthday breakfast. Now that I think about it that might have been turkey bacon.

Today is the 4th of July and I found a recipe for pulled pork sandwiches online. DK loves pulled pork. I might be setting myself up for failure because he is a pulled pork connoisseur. How hard can it be right? The name makes it sound like you just PULL some PORK out of a deli meat bag and put it on bread to make a SANDWICH. Oh no, that’s not what it means at all. Pulled pork means that the pork is slow cooked (10 hours for my recipe) until it is so tender that you can just pull it apart without cutting it. So I woke up early this morning and browned the pork on all sides in a skillet with oil. It was really funny because the pork shoulder roast is really heavy (around 5 pounds) so I had to experiment with different kitchen utensils to pick it up and turn it in the pan. I finally settled on these giant sharp fork things that DK uses with the turkey fryer. So now the pork is in the slow cooker where it will stay until 7:00 tonight. I hope it turns out well.

If you are coming over to my house tonight please feel free to leave a comment tomorrow with your thoughts on the pork. If you say nice things that would be great, but really I am looking for honest feedback.

Oink oink!
