I Have A Headache

Last night was an a success!  GARY and the lovely Tootsie came over so Gary could help me get my kindle started.  He called early in the afternoon to ask me if  I'd charged the kindle.

Um, no.

He wanted me to do that?

I told him I would, and then promptly didn't.  I was cooking!  I made them Italian sausages with peppers and onions, stuffed jalapenos, 7 layer bars, plus deli, assorted cheeses, and snackies.....not to mention my ace in the whole, ricotta pie.

I really didn't think they'd come over but to tip the scales in my favor, I emailed Gary and said "Tell Tootsie there will be ricotta pie." Bingo!

We had a great time and a lot of laughs.  Gary, when he actually goes out in public, is HIGHlarious, and I laughed so much my cheeks got sore.  We played games with Evan and his friend, who was sleeping over. <---what else is new?  And yes, I drank too much, but isn't that was New Years Eve is for?

Anyway......

Turns out I totally could've set up the kindle myself as SOMEONE suggested.  I watched Gary hit a button or two and then it was time to set up my amazon account and voila!  Done!  I panic a bit with all things electronic so having Gary there lended a modicum of comfort.  Plus he had the boys laughing their asses off. 

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my kindle.  I bought two books last night!  Wheee!!!  One was $14.99 and the other $2.99.  I will def see what else I want to buy over the weekend.

Gary and Tootsie left, and the boys moved their party up to Ev's bedroom a little before 2am. omfg.  I decided at that point to play online poker, even though I'm never up that late usually.  I decided to play a $3 double or nothing game, and last I remember I was doing pretty well.  I was the chip leader, but not by much, and there were 8 of us left, with 5 itm.  I fell asleep!  I woke up at like 4am, sitting upright (maybe slumped over might be a better description) with the laptop in front of me and a message from black chip poker saying I won!  lol Awesome. I've finally found the key to winning online poker; sleep through it!

Evan and his friend are still sleeping and it's 12:15am.  I was going to bake them some muffins and cook up some bacon, but now I'm feeling lazy and I think if you want breakfast you need to be up by 11am.  Besides, it's almost time for Tom Terrific and his gang to play!  :)  I fucking LOVE football.  I've always been a baseball fan, but because a football fan maybe 7 years ago.  And as much as baseball is my first love, there is nothing better than watching an exciting football game.

Speaking of baseball....

My buddy CRANKY left this comment this morning:

VJ - the offer for the sox game was serious, so we shall make it happen! We typically get a table for 5 on the right field roof box.

Is she awesome or what?  The majority of games that I go to are in the first base area, but I have been to the right field roof boxes once before with Gary.  As we sat up there in the sun, I told him I was going to get on the jumbotron screen and sure enough I DID!  I shiat you not.  I looked up and there I was in my red sox gear screaming and waving, and next to me, a glum bearded guy wearing a bruins shirt (Gary).  Heh.  Cranky we're going to be on the jumbotron!!!!  Oh and I should warn you now, I get a bit overly excited at sox games and tend to cheer...erm....loudly.  Thank you Cranky!  Drinks and hot dogs are on me!

Half an hour to the Patriots game!  Kids are still sleeping so I think I'll prep something for them to eat now.  If they're not up before kick off, they're going to have to fend for themselves, which probably means goldfish crackers for breakfast.  I am suuuuuch a good mom.

Oh and if anyone's around, I'll be playing poker on BCP during the game.  I'm thinking a multitable so if you're around try to join it!

Play smart.

as much as I feel it won't happen I am rooting for the Bills today :)

There are only 3 games that I actually care about and they will be done by 4pm and thus I can just get my tired old ass to sleep.

Go Bills, Go Bengals and Down with the Browns.

Glad you had a great evening and happy new year. May 2012 rock your socks off.

Josie said...

Josie said...

Pig headed women devoid of any self-confidence. Blogs like she does. Surprise. No chance for much personal development on that front.

P.S. After we get the Kindle kindling, we'll work on A.M. and P.M. I will UNBOX the visual aids. I'm pretty sure it is in the same box with the shoe to teach lacing in kindergarten. May need to work with that too.

Nahh! Nahh! Nahh! Tojaso! Tojaso! Tojaso!

Josie said...

lol kenny, you crack me up. and yes you were right...then again even a broken clock is right twice a day. :P besides if gary didn't come over i would've been asleep by 10:30.

KenP said...

With a broken clock right twice and me getting 1 point recently, you the show horse, Hoss.

lightning36 said...

"we'll work on A.M. and P.M."

Zin said...

Well Miss Josie how was your NY, fell asleep playing poker and you won wow, hell tonight sit on 6 tables and go to bed you will be making money while you sleep, lol.
Just got back from the ranch, the hell with the camper pick it up sometime next week or month or just leave it there till i need it. Well i only drank 30 out of the 36 beers i took for myself, i now know what death feels like, i am so sick, getting to old for this shit.
Hope the Giants beat the crap out of the Cowboys tonight, hate the Cowboys.
Go Steelers Go

Josie said...

Well Mr. Zin from Texas, Houston lost, which was good for me. I have my points on the Steelers but they down 3 points, which is nothing.

Pats started down 21-0 and came back to crush the Buffalo Bills.

When I used to go camping beofre my son was born, my friends and I had a hard fast rule. We'g for for 2 or 3 nights and whatever beer/booze you brought with you had to be consumed or you were erm, a pussy. If you brought 36 beers you had to drink them all. The rule made for a very very drunk final night.

Ahhh there's nothing like camping at night. *sigh*

Zin said...

Sorry i tried, at least i was the last man standing, we sat around the camp fire till about 4am.
Just finished making supper, made some puffy beef tacos, luv puffy tacos, now going to make some homemade salsa for the tacos.
Sounds like you are a great cook yourself Miss Josie, or is it Mrs?
Well tomorrow i start walking at least 2 miles a day Mon-Fri.

badbilly32 said...

are the 7 layer bars you refered to red ,yellow, and green with the raspberry jelly, and covered in chocolate?siiiigggggghhhhhhh......


the whole key to sleeping while playing is to turn the volume up high so you can hear the alarmlike BONK BONK BONK then after u fold or bet u can go back to sleep for another minute and a half

FUCK THE STEELERS!!!! can you imagine having a football team that scores less total td's in a season than either new england tight end? f.m.l........that being said GO GO GO LIONS mathew stafford is a beast

Josie said...

Mmm puffy tacos, are awesome. And yes, I'm a pretty good cook, but I have never made homemade salsa - always get it from the jar. do you use fresh tomatoes or canned in your salsa? It's Ms...

@billy, no these are not colorful. They have chocolate, nuts, coconut, condensed milk, caramel....a lot of yum. The steelers won you know!

badbilly32 said...

i love how you wait for a couple of your minions to repond before you post!killing multiple birds with 1 stone lol......

do you know the cookies im talking about? im pretty sure their called 7 layer cake they are definitley italian...coconut is yucky!b.t.w.

@zin i started running 1 week ago, i can now almost go a full mile before i feel like im having a major heart attack and have to walk gasping for air lol!shooting for 3 miles by spring(if i dont keel over beforehand lol)

Josie said...

lol billy - it just happened that i found 2 comments. and no i dont know what cake ur talking about - these were more like brownies...although not solid chocolate.

Cranky said...

VJ - something tells me you are a very exuberant fan at sporting events. It'll be fun!

Josie said...

lol cranky, that's a bit of an understatement. :)

Zin said...

For salsa canned tomatoes are fine for pico de gallo fresh ingredients 100% of the time.

badbilly32 congrats on your running. As for fucking the Steelers i believe you would need to bend over in order for that to happen, who do you want to take on 1st Big Ben or James Harrison your choice?

Wolfshead said...

Gary actually expected you to charge something?

Gary said...

Why not? She charges me $10 a week to be her friend...

lightning36 said...

Gary said...
"Why not? She charges me $10 a week to be her friend..."

Only $10? I'm getting ripped off!!!

Gary said...

Well, we've known each other for a long time, Lighning. I'm entitled to a discount.

Wolfshead said...

Well Light, Gary is a bigger suck up than you so he gets the bigger suck up discount
