Yippie kay yay indeed

So I watched Die Hard this weekend. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. Not sure why I had never seen it - it's actually pretty good. Although I do have questions about why Bruce wears a wife beater the entire time. Ah well - I blame the 80s.

Norm!

Listening to Sirius XM 80s this morning, and they played the full theme song from Cheers. I swear I had no IDEA about some of these lyrics!

Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you've got;
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?

All those night when you've got no lights,
The check is in the mail;
And your little angel
Hung the cat up by it's tail;
And your third fiance didn't show;

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same;
You want to be where everybody knows your name.

Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee's dead;
The morning's looking bright;
And your shrink ran off to Europe,
And didn't even write;
And your husband wants to be a girl;

Be glad there's one place in the world
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to go where people know,
People are all the same;
You want to go where everybody knows your name.

Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came...

Particularly the line about "your husband wants to be a girl" - how very progressive!!!

Tami Taylor can do way better

I binge-watched Dirty John this weekend - oh. my. god. Semi-obsessed. And annoyed at Connie Britton's character! Run, girl. Just run. But also - damn, girl. Just damn.

Side gig

I met with a friend's sister yesterday who has decided to have a baby on her own. And another friend messaged me yesterday asking if she could pass my number to HER friend who is going to do IVF with a sperm donor...maybe I should start some sort of single mom consulting business. It also helps to bring Georgie - the girl was literally ready to call the doctor while we were still sitting there.

Well crap

Freaked out this morning when I had no paycheck in my account - and then realized I had forgotten that the company moved to a pay schedule of the 15th and last day of the month, rather than every two weeks. And then sadly noted that was why my last paycheck was a bit heftier than previous - I didn't get a raise, I am getting fewer checks with bigger dollar amounts.

I realize I sound like a Geico commercial

"I just saved a ton of money on my car insurance!" But it's true! Actually, I saved a ton of money by finally sucking it up and refinancing my car loan - $200 a month in savings! Hawaii here I come.

Contemplating making a run for the border

There is nothing sadder than a sick baby. You just feel so helpless. They look at you like, "why aren't you helping me?? Make it better!!" And the doctor is like "Give it time - she will be better in a few days." Meanwhile each day is an eternity because she fusses all the time, won't sleep, won't eat - ahhhhh parenthood.
