oh irony - you heartless wench.

the Husband informed me this a.m. that he was going to study group for one of his classes today.

he wouldn't be home till later today.

i've got the whole house to myself, and a list of things i want/need to do: clean.scrap.create.cook.

what do i want to do right now? sleep.

a list of things to do and all i want to do is inspect the inside of my eyelids for cracks.

hmmmmm...think this is still catch-up from my sleepless Wednesday night?
naah. just another visit from the irony fairy.

in other news...
from our supervisors meeting on Thursday, filed under the 'i am SO pretensions' department.
one of the supervisors, who is an expert on all things healthy (she likes to give me crap about drinking diet Coke, losing weight, being healthy, taking assorted supplements, etc. ), says, for no apparent reason, "Bill went to the 99cents Store yesterday and got ketchup. i threw it out."

i looked at the big boss. she looked at me, then said "what, he can't have ketchup with his fries?"

Healthy Girl looked amazed we would even ask.

"noooo. commercial ketchup is made with high fructose corn syrup. Trader Joe's has one that's just tomatoes, vinegar..."

sorry. i stopped listening at that point.

i have no problem with healthy. but dammit, if my husband wants Heinz ketchup (which he doesn't - he doesn't like ketchup), i will buy him Heinz ketchup. high fructose corn syrup and all.

after all - there are limits. even in ketchup.

jeez, for real. I know someone like this. I put on my uh-huh-sure-i'm-listening face, tune out, and use the time more productively to mentally make up my to-do list, visually a good color for my kitchen, etc...ha....

1. I wish we had a Trader Joe's!

2. I only eat Heinz, high fructose corn syrup or not.

Poor guy...I bet he's sneaking around with McDonald's. LOL

Hmm...I can not do without my high fructose corn syrup. It is the major part of my diet.

I agree that the poor man is probably slinkin' around on the side with his *un-wife-authorized* ketchup. Grown man can't choose his own ketchup? Sad.

I know a lady just like that. But her kids eat more crap than mine ever did/do. The husband heads for Mickey D's every morning on his way to work and every day at lunch and every day after work. REALLY! She can not understand why he never loses weight. I just shrug...: )

Love ya,
