The Official End of Winter

Well it's happened! Most people mark the end of winter by warming temperatures, the appearance of blossoms or such archaic tools as calendars, but for me, nothing says Spring as the timely removal of winter sediment from brown and dingy gutters. Yes, today I was honored with the loud booming noise of the street sweeper. Like a much needed exfoiliant, it spins and scrubs, removing many months worth of dirt and grime. Oh, the pure grey of the asphalt. And I find myself wanting it to rain, as if the final rinse will make it complete. How I wish to see April showers flow mudless in the gutter!

Tubbs is not as excited by the visit from the DPW. Well, perhaps he is excited. Excited in the way that he barks incessantly every time it makes a pass. Which causes me to yell at him. Yes, I say "Shut up" to the dog. I know it's not polite, but I figure he doesn't really get that. Sometimes I say "Please be quiet!", but it has the same effect. None. So 'shut up' is usually the default... because it has less syllables.

Update on the packing. It's more done. Does that make sense? Well, more of it has been done. Yes, that sounds better. Yesterday I emptied the kitchen island drawers and the side table? um, side board?...ok,the white thing by the stairs. Today it's the bathroom drawers and kitchen cabinets. But somehow, the more I do, the more chaotic the place looks. Thank god I'm not nesting yet, or this might drive me insane. Or perhaps I would be done by now. Which clearly would be a indication of insanity. So it's actually good that so much is left to do, no? Yes, I will go along with that.

Postscript: Oh! I must tell you. Though my news is exciting, my friend Sexy has perhaps what could be even more exciting news...truely every girls dream. Please wish her a heart-felt congratualtions! Click here.

Ha! Jordan Catalano hit on my friend Libby at a ski resort in CO. She was 19 and had no idea who he was. Her boyfriend Griff (who we talk about constantly) came over and found his face familiar. He insisted to Mr. Leto that they must have worked together at Mongolian BBQ, and that's why he knew his face. When Jared Leto said "No, you recognise me because I'm in movies", Griff thought he was joking and was all "Whatever, you totally worked the grill at Mongolian, har har har". He didn't realize who it was until days later. Oops. And Scarlett has moved on to Josh Hartnett. Yumma. I have purposefully avoided all of his movies (exceot The Virgin Suicides, I love me some Sophia Coppola) so I could retain my love for him from The Faculty. *sigh* He's dreamy.

Word on the street is that Josh Hartnett is the one who knocked up Katie Holmes and it wasn't "UberGay" Cruise. You heard it here first. BTW, the above story is hilarious and I love it. MongoLeto. Hee hee.

Um, who is Jared Leto? Seriously.

Jared Leto is a beautiful beautiful actor who has sucked ass in everything (just my humble opinion) since his stellar break out performance as the dreamy but dim object of Angela Chase's lust in the teen angstfest "My So Called Life"-an hour long drama that was cancelled after the first season- much to the chagrin of its rabid fanbase.

What? Nooooo, I don't watch too much tv...

Mrs. T. I'm sorry. We can no longer be friends.

Oh diddy, I should stop calling you Sexy. Not that you aren't sexy, just that you actually have a name you post under, and Sexy is just the name of your blog...but you ARE sexy, don't let that be questioned.

Mrs. T, after much consideration, I have decided that we can still be friends, however since you do not swoon at the mention of Jordan Catalano I must mandate that you order the entire season of My So Called Life from Amazon and watch it IMMEDIATELY...
