Happy Sunday

Hi everyone.  Well, I went and did it.  Yep, at the behest of my friend Heather I went and joined Myspace.  I really don't know why but maybe it will be fun who knows.  If any of you have a myspace page please drop by and add me as a friend, I'd like that.  Here's the link . . . - Allison - 27 - Female - BURBANK, California - www.myspace
My weekend was pretty much uneventful and I have pretty much been vegging here on the sofa watching tv.  I did have a nice conversation with Terri @ You think you know, but you have no idea...  Check her out if you don't already know her.  She is sweet and a lot of fun.
So what is on tap for tonight.  Hmmm . . . Big Brother is on again!  Yippee that is my favorite show.  Tonight the nominations for eviction happen.  I'm thinking it will be Sharon and Sheila.  I think Sharon should have won the HOH competition but they had a stupid question that helped to decide it.  It was asking whether or not there was still a preexisting relationship still remaining in the house and the answer was yes.  The consider the Guinea pigs as a relationship.  Come on guys, stupid stuff like that just messes up the game.  Desperate Housewives is also on tonight so I will be checking that out as well.
Thanks for all the kind comments in my last entry about not wearing out my welcome.  I did just say that as a silly thing to say but many of you were so kind as to say that I could never wear out my welcome and I really appreciate that you care that much about me to say that.    You are all so sweet and special.
I do want to give you all an update on my sister.  She is doing really well,  I spoke to her on the phone this morning and she seems like her old self.  She was giving her little sister the business and ragging on me and that makes me so happy.  She is working and regaining her strength and putting back the weight she lost during chemo.  So much good news that I really rejoice in it.
Here's hopin' you will have a wonderful week ahead and do your best to make your Monday a happy one.  Keep a smile on your face always and never sweat the small stuff.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Weekend is Here

Hi everyone.  I hope you all had wonderful weeks and that your weekends are fun filled, relaxing and full of love.
I don't have much planned at all.  Hopefully my friend Heather will come over this afternoon.  She is awfully busy these days.  Her schooling and social engagements do take a lot of her time.
Rene is at work right now.  He has been doing a couple of day shifts the past couple of days.  They got rid of one of the assistant managers, and he has been covering extra shifts while they hunt down a replacement.  Sometimes the turnover in retail can be too much.  I'm glad I have a weekday job and security.
My Ducks won last night against the Dallas Stars.  They had to or they would have been eliminated.  They will have to win the next two games to make it out of this series.  The Lakers start their quest for an NBA championship tomorrow and my Dodgers are in Atlanta looking awful as usual LOL.  Bring on USC football please!!!!
I was so happy on Big Brother Wednesday when they got smart and evicted Natalie from the house.  I was getting so tired of her.  I was disappointed that Kristy Lee Cook was voted off American Idol, though I do think she has a bright future in country music.  Time will tell on that.
I'll be glad when that Pennsylvania primary comes and goes on Tuesday.  I have been a Hillary Clinton supporter all along and hope she wins but I am resigning myself to the fact that Obama does seem to have the momentum and the inside track to the nomination.  I won't necessarily transfer my vote to him in November however.  I will weigh the candidates strengths and weaknesses and come up with a logical way for me to cast my ballot.
Well, I have run the gambit of things here so I think I better skiddaddle before I wear out my welcome LOL.  I hope you have very happy weekends everyone.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Very Nice Weekend

Hi Everyone!  How was your weekend?  Mine was somewhat of a whirlwind.  It wasn't all that I would have wanted but it was super to say the least.
Heather called me up early on Friday morning and asked if Rene and I would be available to go to Santa Barbara and spend a couple of days at a fantastic resort hotel on the beach and be pampered.  Now how could I pass up on that.  I had no plans at all and that sounded so exciting.  I called Rene up and he was all for it.  He finally got a whole weekend off.  So I called Heather back and told her we were in.  Heather's Dad and Mom had planned a weekend jaunt there but as luck had it her Dad got called out of town on business so they had this wonderful cottage room available with no one going to be there and it was already paid for. 
So after work I rushed home and packed some stuff for the weekend and Rene came home around 6 o'clock.  We headed for Heather's and picked her up on the way up the coast.  I have to tell you that the weather was so warm and beautiful this weekend and the visibility on the coast was so clear you could see the channel islands in great detail like you could reach out and touch them.
We were pampered with massages in the spa and I even did a little laying out at the pool with Heather while Rene was out on the beach.  He does like the beach a lot and that is something he has in common with my sister.  We had some wonderful meals.  We had Italian food Saturday night at this place called Palazzio in Montecito.  Montecito is one of the rich areas where stars have homes.  We also made our way to State St. and went bar hopping a little but it got kinda rowdy with all the college students from USCB around so we headed back to the seclusion of our hotel on the beach.  This hotel, the Biltmore, was built in 1927 and has been frequented by many stars and such throughout the years.
We had so much fun and relaxation I almost didn't come back to the Valley for the work week.  LOL  But here I am all rested and had a good day nonetheless today.  Hope you all had wonderful weekends and started your work weeks off with positive days.  Be happy and enjoy your tomorrow.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Reality Thursday

Hi Everyone.  Hope you are doing wonderful on this fine beautiful Thursday.  I wanted to take the time to wish my friend Lisa from San Mateo a very Happy Birthday.  She will no doubt be the first to read this entry and leave a comment.  LOL  Luv ya! Lisa.
Did anyone watch the American Idol Gives Back last night.  I thought it was an amazing show and that isn't a word I use loosely.  Of course, Carrie Underwood's song was so very touching and wonderful and didn't she look absolutely breathtaking.  I just love that chick's voice and her pure beauty.   Tonight it is back to business and someone is going to get kicked off the show.  Carly hasn't much impressed me lately but I really think that Kristy Lee Cook stepped up to the plate Tuesday night and hit a home run.  I think whether or not she wins this competition she has a future in country music especially since Kelly Pickler has done well and she doesn't have half as good a voice.
Well James finally got evicted from the Big Brother house last night.  Of course they had to go and do one of those long drawn out processes to determine who will be the next head of household in which I will not find out who it will be until Sunday night . . . well that is of course unless one of you has the live feed and wants to tell me.  That would be mighty nice of you.    I wish Natalie would get booted from the house.  I really relate to Sharon.  She is so giving and caring and you can't help from liking who and what she is.  She is the only one that hasn't sat there and lied through their teeth and played shenanigans. 
Anyway, I hope you will all have a Fantastic Friday.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Hi everyone.  It's been pretty much a relaxing weekend for me.  Didn't have any plans and as it turned out that was good since I needed a lot of rest.  I've been under the weather a bit the past several days and these two days have helped me a great deal.
Went to mom and dad's for their weekly Nascar bbq.  My driver Kasey Kahne once again did not win.  Carl Edwards won for the third time this year.  I'm sitting here at home now watching a documentary on the History Channel about Martin Luther King Jr. who was assassinated 40 years ago this week.  So sad that hatred has ruled the day for so long in this country and in the world as a whole.  Everyone should be treated as equals whether they be white, black, latino, asian or male or female.  I could never understand why people look at others differently just because they may be different than them.  No one is the same and everyone is different than the next person no matter what.
It does look to me that the election for nominee for President on the Democratic side is going to end up being Barrack Obama.  I didn't vote for him in our primary but I do have an open mind towards the future.  I cannot say whether I would vote for him or John McCain in November because I want to know that I am making the best decision with my vote.  One thing is for sure I will not waste my vote on Ralph Nader.
So I have gone from racing to racism to politics all in a few paragraphs here.  LOL  I always knew I was talented.  JK  So I guess I ought to end this rambling now before I can't stop myself.  Hehe  I hope you will all have a fantastic and happy week!  Luv ya!  TTFN

Close to End of the Week

Hi everyone!  I'm sitting here on my computer early today.  This girl is a bit on the sick side today.  I've been laying around all afternoon and I am already tired of that.  I've got this headache going through the right side of my head and through my eye ball. 
I feel guilty for leaving work early today, but I wasn't doing anyone any good by being there.  I don't know why I am telling you all of this anyway.  I'm just typing random thoughts here so bear with me.
I wanted to give everyone an update on my sister.  She has returned to work, although she is very exhausted at the end of the day she says it is a good tired.  She said that she was sick and tired of being sick and tired.  She has regained a lot of strength and her appetite is coming back to her.  She sounds a lot happier and she is even talking to me about being a little naughty with Dan her husband.  That makes me feel so good that she is doing so much better.  I have been so worried about her.
Well, I think I will leave you with a couple of surveys and call it an entry.  Hope you all have happy Fridays.  Luv ya!!  TTFN
