I Am the Ultimate Narcissist

Exhibit A: my penchant for using memes on my blog, especially more than once a week. :) Thanks WLFG for the open tag! :)

The rules are simple. There are 9 questions (3², each of which has 3 answers, to give a total of 27, or 3³. The whole point is that the questions are somewhere between eclectic, banal and downright bizarre, so that you can answer completely truthfully without actually giving much away. Just put down the first three answers that come to mind if you can’t work out the “most appropriate” three.

Objects Within One Metre Of You

1. My round hair brush
2. A calculator
3. My Bible

First Names of People You Sat Next To At School

1. Mandy. She was my best friend in Kindergarten.
2. Julie. She was my high school study partner in the Brainiac Club, and also a friendly rival for top marks.
3. Jena. We wrote notes and made fun of people in junior high.

Programs You Won’t Watch

1. The Bachelor - the gimmick has gotten so old.
2. Big Brother - same reason as above.
3. WWE - I don't like the fake drama that is obviously geared to a testosterone-heavy audience.

Favourite Trivial Pursuit Categories
(Okay, I don't actually play this game, so this is based on what I *think* I would most prefer from the Trivial Pursuit Disney game)
1. Heroes & Heroines
2. Once Upon a Time
3. Monsters & Villains

Superpowers You’d Like To Have

1. The ability to wiggle my nose and have the apartment clean itself.
2. The power to change my appearance/visibility/weight/hairstyle at will.
3. The power to travel back and forth in time.

Newspapers, Magazines or Periodicals Read Regularly
(I don't actually read newspapers or periodicals, but here are the top celeb gossip blogs I read).


Songs You Dislike

1. Don't Cha - Pussycat Girls
2. Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne
3. Red Red Wine - UB40

Blog Posts of Your Own That You’d Recommend

Okay, even *I* am not that narcissistic. Read whichever ones you want.

And tag whoever you want, too.

Happy Friday!!

The Sucking Sucks...

...on my old vacuum cleaner. It's a Dirt Devil Swivel Glide, and Hubbs & I received it as a gift from my parents a little over 2 years ago. Interestingly enough, the warranty is only good for 2 years. Gee, I wonder why?

So Hubbs
was doing the vacuuming the other day, when he noticed that stuff wasn't getting suctioned up by the vac after a few minutes of operating. I thought something must have been jammed in the uptake tubing somewhere, or perhaps the bag was full. Neither proved to be the case; the vacuum had simply decided it no longer wanted to work consistently.

I decided to leave it for a day, and then I tried to operate the stinkin' thing again. It stopped working about 2 minutes into my vacuuming. I suppose I could have brought the thing to a repair
shop, or taken it apart and tried to repair it. I did neither.

Instead, I did what I know best to do. I went shopping for a new vac. My rationale? It would have cost us just as much, if not more, to repair the stupid old vac as it would be for us to pick up a newer, nicer, better-performing one.

mmediately I went online to do my research, because of course reading reviews is a good place to start for those who are ignorant in the area of small household appliances. After a few hours of investigating, I realized that the only good vacuums that exist are of the Dyson brand and variety, and their cost starts at around $500CDN. Not an option at this point; even *I* have limits when it comes to spending. Maybe in a couple of years, when I make my first million ;)

Unfortunately, I soon realized from my online review reading that there is no such thing as a good medium-priced vacuum cleaner; the ratings will always be moderate at best, and every single available model will have at least as many nay-sayers as fans. How, then, is a girl to decide? In an attempt to narrow down my options, I went for best bargain. It seemed like as good a system as any, given that my market research wasn't going so well. I found the Hoover WindTunnel U5720-950 on sale at 56% less than its original price, so I went for it; after all, if its original price was $230, surely it must be a *decent* machine at the very least?

I picked up my new vac yesterday and today I tested it out. So far (after one major vac job), so good. It was much quieter than my old Dirt Devil, and it seemed to pick up a disturbingly large volume of dust (was I really living with *that* in my home?!). I will have to keep monitoring its performance to see if it really is worth $230, but at the very least right now it's "sucking," so it's good enough for me until I can save up enough quarters to buy myself a quality, lifetime-guaranteed Dyson.

I was tagged by Natalie, so now I will respond in kind. The meme of honour is the Rockin' Girl Blogger awards, to which I get to nominate 5 rockin' girls. Some have already been nominated so unfortunately, I cannot retag them (e.g. Natalie).

The awards go to....

1) Cristina - I didn't blogroll her because I'm not sure how public her "blog" is, but she is my bff/soulsister-from-a-different-mother/partner-in-crime and she rocks! Cristina call me already! :P ***BIG HUGS***

2) Sylvana - I love reading her posts, even though she posts irregularly now that her work has gotten crazy-busy. Post more often woman! Oh and Sylvana rocks because she is an intelligent blonde (and no, that isn't an oxymoron!) :)

3) With Love, Fat Girl - Another blogger who I love to read, and who is so refreshingly honest and raw in her self-reflective posts as to inspire me to dig deeper. She rocks because she reveals herself openly on her blog.

4) Janeylynne - An infrequent poster though she is, she rocks because she offers up the best calorie-rich recipes, and she doesn't pull any punches and tells things like it is. She's also a great commenter on my blog...thanks JL! :)

5) Catherine Jane - Although CJ rarely posts nowadays, I love that she's a buff, tough, active chick on the outside and a total geek on the inside. She breaks stereotypes of geekdom and for that she rocks!

Anyway, that's the end of my Wednesday meme. :) Rockin' Girl Bloggers, I suppose it is your turn now! ;)

Go IRIS Go! (A Sad State of Affairs)

I live in a booming city, the kind where housing prices are skyrocketing and jobs are plentiful and the economy is hot, hot, hot. The kind of city where Taco Bells have to shut their doors for lack of employees, because there is a greater demand for workers than there are workers available. The kind of city where it's a worker's market, and most folks with a pulse can pretty much get a job in the service industry somewhere.

In this kind of booming city, as a general rule the quality of service is proportional to the availability of workers; the less available workers there are, the more likely a company is to settle for wh
at they can get, and the poorer the quality and service of those whom they hire. This isn't true for every store and restaurant out there, but for a good majority of them.

This is why I generally brace myself for poor service. I literally psych myself up to expect bad service. Those of you who know the Mrs. Loquacious of days gone by, know that the old me would have verbally destroyed a service-worker for consistently incompetent, bad, or rude service. I would have probably torn some of these people a new butt-hole with my verbal lacing. You get the idea.

Nowadays, however, I save my energies, because incompetent, bumbling service seems to be the norm, not the exception, particularly in the lower-paying jobs. I expect that my change will not be counted correctly, I expect the workers not to know their products, I expect that appointments will "run late" and I will have to wait a long time, and I expect that requests and orders will get lost in the mail, the shuffle, the process. I fully prepare myself to have to deal with apathetic, ignorant, and downright grumpy service providers who hate their jobs but stick around for the paychecks.

Which is why it is a sad state of affairs when good quality service is a pleasant surprise. It is sad that being provided with competent, consistent service is such a rare treat that it catches me off guard and brings me delight. Shouldn't this be the norm, not the exception? Alas, it is not.

So, let me share my joy with you. I am delighting in the service of IRIS Optometrists in Oliver
Village. This is the place where Hubbs got his sexy new frames. This is also the place where I have been fitted with two different trial pairs of contacts in the hopes of finding something that works for me. This is furthermore the place where my sexy new glasses came from, and the place that is replacing (for free) my scratched Nikon lenses. My pleasant surprise came in the form of a phone call this morning, to inform me that my repaired lenses/glasses are ready for pick-up. When I dropped them off last Wednesday, I was informed it would take over a week to get them shipped back. It has been exactly 6 days (therefore less than a week) and my glasses are ready! Way to go, IRIS! :)

They have consistently exceeded expectations by meeting (and beating) their own timelines several times over. They have also been friendly, enthusiastic, and polite in their interactions with me. Overall, I have been very very impressed.

So how sad is it that this great service stands out in my mind because the rest of the service I receive is mostly poor? Unbelievable.

I can't wait til the economy slows down.

Since When Is an "X" Family-Friendly?

Pardon the poor pun. By "X" I mean "ex," and by "ex" I mean: "person-with-whom-one-had-a-previous-relationship-that-is-now-over."

Is there such a thing as staying friends with an ex, particularly once both parties have moved onto happy, permanent relationships with other people?

In most cases, I personally do not think so. I think t
hat it is unhealthy to remain connected with someone from the past long after the relationship is done. I think that a desire to stay connected is borne out of a (sub)conscious lingering hope of reconciliation (and resumption of the relationship) with the other person. I think that if the ex wants to reconnect or remain in a friendship with someone long after the other person has moved on, that this is because somewhere deep inside the ex they are still harbouring unresolved feelings for the other person.

Of course, there are exceptions. I know of one, where the guy has remained close friends with all of his ex'es over the past decade. He is the only healthy anomaly that I am aware of. Other than that, I daresay that most people who claim to still be on friendly terms with their ex'es do not have healthy platonic relationships with them; there is always an imbalance of affection from one side, whether they claim that it is there or not. There is always one party who is holding on to what could have been, what used to be, and what could still be.

I am lucky that Hubbs and I are pretty much on the same page on this issue. He doesn't think it is all that healthy to remain friends with exes, either, so he puts up appropriate boundaries to protect our marriage and our relationship as his first priority. I do the same. However, I'm curious to know what others' experiences are like concerning this topic. I'm sure some of you will agree with me, and others will balk at my thoughts (which are just my opinions). Some of you will have lived the experience of being the ex, or being the party who has moved on, or being the significant other of one of the two. What are your experiences? What are your thoughts on the matter? Enlighten me. Let's discuss :)

Happy Friday!!

As I sit here at my computer, a cup of freshly-brewed java beside me, I feel content. I am happy with my life, with my Hubbs, and with the day. I see sunshine that gives me hope that the day will be a nice one, I consider my evening dinner plans with eager anticipation, and I look very much forward to my hour-long deep-tissue massage today.

If you would have spoken with me yesterday, or the day before that, or the day before that, I would have growled at you and then burst into tears. I did not feel content on those days. I was miserable, achy, sick, PMS-y, restless, and generally blah. Was it the hormones? Maybe. The lack of coffee? Possibly. More likely than those things, however, I think it was the difference in how I chose to spend the first 30 minutes of my morning.

You see, on a typical morning I wake up groggy and tired, and upon getting up I shuffle my feet to my computer and then spend a few minutes on email, surfing, and the like before making myself a caffeinated hot beverage. Today, however, inspired by Hubbs' example, my first priority (after visiting the washroom) was to pray, and read my Bible, and spend some time with God. My computer was not turned on until after I had given myself some quiet time with my Savior.

In my humble opinion, that has made all the difference. I should have known it would, too, because it always does. However, my memory is pathetically short and my discipline, lacking in the unstructured summer months. As a result, I don't usually practice this act of morning devotions like I should. Instead, I spend it doing frivolous things that tend not to brighten my outlook on the day.

Perhaps today marks the start of a new trend, one that devotes the first-fruits of my time to the One I love and adore above all. I hope so. I could really get used to being content all the time, and I'm sure Hubbs wouldn't mind, either! :)

Pardon the pun; it even makes me groan! ;) To be honest, I am the worst egg-boiler in history. Because every recipe calls for a different amount of boiling time, sitting time, cooling time, etc., I have never remembered how to hard-boil eggs.

This morning, I decided to make low-fat egg salad, which of course
calls for hard-boiled eggs. I put a pot of water on the burner and let it boil, and then gently laid my eggs into the hot water on the still-running burner. Only after doing all of this and letting the eggs boil in the boiling water for 5 minutes did I decide to consult a recipe. My bad. 80% of the recipes I found online recommended using cold water, putting the eggs into the water before boiling, and taking the eggs off the heat (or reducing the heat dramatically) very shortly after boiling. I did none of these things.

I was a little worried. Did I just waste half a dozen fresh, large eggs out of carelessness? I assessed my situation and decided to improvise, thinking that perhaps I might be able to recover from my egg boiling errors. I found a couple of "hot water methods" for hard-boiled eggs, and hoped as I combed through them quickly that I had not actually messed up at all. Wrong again, since the "hot water method" called for me to add the eggs to the boiling hot water and immediately turn off the burner (which I had already left running for 5 minutes at this point). It also advised that I not lift the lid for 20 minutes after adding the eggs, which of course I had already done, and it suggested that I leave the eggs in the pot on the burner, which of course I had already removed it from.

DOH! :) Ever the culinary adventurer, I decided to recap the pot with the lid, return the eggs to the burner, and leave the eggs to simmer for another 10 minutes.

When the 10 had passed, I decided to take my eggs and run them under cold water for 2 minutes (which is suggested by virtually every hard-boiled egg recipe out there) before doing the final check.

I cracked open the first egg, and the shell slid off effortlessly. Good start, I thought. Next, I sliced into the egg with a knife. The egg white was relatively firm, and not rubbery. I made another slice into the egg. The yolk was medium-soft, but perfect. It was not green or gray, and it wasn't runny in the least. It had a fluffy texture to it that made me want to eat the yolk rather than save it for my egg salad. In a made-up word, my eggs were eggs-cellent. :)

What did I learn from my early morning egg adventure? I learned that it is not a bad idea to improvise and take risks when cooking (even something as simple as hard-boiled eggs), and that there's more than one way to boil an egg. :)

Here's my "recipe" for medium-hard-boiled eggs, in case you want to try it (and the time for each step apparently depends on altitude from sea level, so this is based on the Canadian prairie elevation from sea level):

6 eggs


1. Fill a pot with cold water. Add salt and bring it to a boil.
2. Gently (using a ladle or spoon) add eggs to the boiling water. Cover and allow the water to boil again.
3. As soon as the water boils again, reduce heat to medium, crack the lid a little bit, and let the eggs continue to boil for 5 minutes.
4. Turn off the burner and recover the pot. Let eggs sit in the pot on the burner for about 20 minutes.
5. Remove eggs from pot and run under cold water for about 2 minutes.
6. Peel and enjoy!

And that, in short, is how I am becoming an eggs-pert. Trial and error, baby. Always trial and much error. :)
