Perk up, buttercup!

Okay. I am feeling much better.

Hubs and I were emailing about my itch sitch and how frustrated I was that this stuff keeps happening around peak fertility time, and he reminded me about the TBM.

**Smacks Forehead**

Oh yeah! I even bought a needleless syringe last time I was having issues (last month!), which we have yet to use. I found instructions on some website or other, and it seems pretty straightforward, but if anyone has tried the TBM please let me know if you have any tips or words of wisdom. Looks like that's what's on the docket for this evening!

My Memorial Day weekend was very nice. VD Beer Festivus for the Rest of Us Invitational 2009 went off without a hitch! We had around 25 guests, but we could have had another 30 and still not felt crowded, so next year I think we'll kick it up a notch. Everyone had a great time, drank way too much, got a little sun, and ended up on their side the next day. Oh, and the winner was a beer called "Primo," which is a lager made in Hawaii (I think). Check it out sometime if you're a beer drinker!

Sunday we went to a bbq at my BIL and SIL's house, but hubs and I were still tired (read: hungover) from Beer Festivus, so we didn't end up staying for too long. Then yesterday we took the motorcycle out for a cruise downtown and hunted for a cute vintage butter dish for a bridal shower. We had ZERO luck (ended up buying one on eb.ay), but it was kinda fun looking through all the antiques shops.

After MUCH encouragement by my SIL and another friend, I also read Tw.ilig.ht this weekend. And I know what I'm about to say will probably start a riot, but...

I wasn't impressed.

Don't throw anything!!

I saw the movie first, so maybe that's what ruined it for me. Not that I thought it was a bad movie, it was fine, I might even watch it again some day. But you know how it is, whenever they make a movie based on a book, the book is almost guaranteed to be way better than the movie. So I was hoping that would be the case. It wasn't. I will continue to read the series, mostly because it's easy to read, I'm interested to see how it ends, and the books are accessible to me right now. But honestly, I could wait for the movies to come out and be perfectly happy.

Alrighty then. I am off to get some work done! Wish me luck tonight with TBM. Hubs says I'll need to fix him a drink, but otherwise he seems gung ho about it! I'll share stories tomorrow!

Hey, no worries! I felt the same way about the movie and book. Everyone is going crazy over the series and I just think it's alright.

GL with the TBM...hope you get good results!! :)

I haven't read or watched Twilight. Doesn't interest me at all!

Good luck with the TBM! I am glad your party went well!!!!

Hey Kit, I am sooo not a fan of Twilight either, so if there is a riot, I'll be there with you.

LOL!! It's not a great work of writing, but it's a fun, quick read.

Glad Festivus went off well, and GL on the TBM!!!!!
