Let us have a moment of silence

For the cast of Ugly Betty.

Word came out yesterday that ABC (those rat bastards!) have decided to cancel the show.
Oh, that's right.
End it.
No more.

I am not amused with this choice.
Talk about upseting.

I knew something was up when they started moving her around.
Move to a Friday night?
Kiss of Death!
Then Wednesday at 10pm.

Now this!
How will I survive?
What will I do without my friend, Betty?
I don't think I can go on without my fix of Mark & Amanda.
Not to mention that witch Wilhemina.
Poor Hilda, first the baby, now this!

Ah, carumba!

So, ABC if you are listening, reconsider.
The show has lots of fans.
We need our Ugly Betty fix.

Don't take her from us.
We love her!

Tell me readers, are you Ugly Betty fans?

There I was.
Simply minding my own business.
In my own kitchen.
All of a sudden, I was attacked!!!

Out of the clear blue.
I did nothing to provoke the attack.
I was in my stocking feet trying to walk to the pantry.

That's when the stealth move happened.
Caught me by surprised.
I screamed.
Taught Cheeks a new phrase that has 2 words and begins with Mother. (I kid! I didn't do that but I screamed it in my head).

Who attacked me you ask?
Not who! WHAT!
My refrigerator.
Jumped out & broke my toe.
The pain.
The horror!
I'm shell shocked but years of therapy will help.

I tried to get workman's comp or disability but I was laughed at.
The nerve.

Tell me what have you ever broken?

These are a few of my Favorite Things....

My name is Meghan and I am a cereal addict.
Cold cereal.
Straight up from the box.
Like these:

I prefer kid like cereal, as you can plainly see from the box of Lucky Charms sitting there.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? They do! Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children’s diets.

Other cereal benefits:
Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets. Woo hoo!

Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.

More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.
Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

For more information about kids and cereals, please visit
Cereal Health and Wellness.

Right now, if you go
here you can print out a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals. Total score!

I chose the 4 above cereals to test out.
Lucky Charms is for me, altho I let the kids have a little...just a little!
I got Kix & the Cheerios for the kids.
Mainly Cheeks.
He thinks Kix are a special treat!
I'm not telling him they are good for him :>)
He had 2 bowls as an after dinner treat, sans milk.
I'm not ready for that mess yet.

I have been a staunch General Mills advocate since I was old enough to eat their products so I suggest checking them out. Look for the white check mark!

Tell me tho. before you go what is your fav cereal?

Let's Discuss

Two of my fav reality shows have started again.
First up.... Celebrity Rehab w/ Dr. Drew.
Luv him...he's so sexxxxxy.

This season he has Heidi Fleiss on.
Now I used to think she was kind of cute.
Always smug looking but cute.
Well get a load of this:

Damn girl!
This, readers, is what drugs will do to you.
She is only 3 years older than me...that would make her 24 42.
Life has not been kind.
I contribute this to rampid drug use.
Why, Heidi, why?

I digress.
I want to see her succeed on the show & perhaps she can get some tips from Heidi Montag-Pratt on how to better herself with a little nip & tuck.

I don't know, what do you all think?
Am I being too harsh on poor Heidi?

Next up is Project Runaway with.....
TaDa: Tim Gunn!

That's not Tim Gunn?
That's just some incredibly cute puppy?
Oops, sorry, just too cute to pass up!
Here is Mr. Gunn

Love this man!
He carries himself so well.
Dresses so daper
And he is just so distinguished.

Honestly, let's just call a duck a duck & say Project Runaway's real host is
Tim Gunn!

It wouldn't be PR w/ him.
What does Heidi do anyway?
Sure, she comments & let's the losers go
Tim, he's the brains of the operation!

Do you agree?
Tell me, what reality shows are you into right now?

Date Night or Chinese Water Torture, take your pick.

Friday night Bobster & I decided to have date night.
We conned asked my sister to watch Cheeks.

I had recently received movie passes courtesy of my employer as my one year anniversary gift.
So I thought I had the right to pick the movie, being they were my free tickets & all.
Bobster told me he revoked my right after I picked Twilight last year.
Hmm, whatever, he just doesn't appreciate good romances.

So Bobster picked this:

Don't get me wrong, I love me some Denzel.
Even Gary Oldham is a great actor.

This movie tho, well Chinese water torture would have been less painful.
It's bleak, dark & sloooooooooooooooooow.
It has it's moments but for the most part it's blah.

The theater was packed.
Opening night and all.
I perserved and stayed in my seat, awake, to see how it ends.

It even has a twist to it that you don't "see" coming.
There is your hint as for the twist.

It was great to spend time with Bobster and watch something in peace & quiet or not have the channel changed 8 billion times when a commercial comes on.

Would I recommend this film?
Not so much.

Have you seen it?
What's the last movie you saw?

Gotta love the Happy Bunnies, don't ya?

I have decided my word of the year.
It's all about me this year.

Not in the "Oh, let's not talk about me, let's talk about what you think of me" way.
More in the way of what am I going to do for me.

2010 is going to be about me:
1. Standing up for myself (b/c no one else is going to be my advocate)

2. Working on improving, creative, health wise.

3. Taking a little time for myself without feeling guilty.

4. Learning how to say no. Really this is probably grouped into #1 but I thought it deserved it's own post.

Really, that's it.

Have you picked a word to help you make it through 2010?
Tell me...

On the other hand if you are wondering why on earth am I posting on a Monday when I should be at work...I am home.
With the dreaded strep throat.
While I feel ok physically my throat feels as if it's been sliced & diced.

I am on antibiotic & I can tell it's already working as the pain level has decreased...slightly but still.

Well enough about me, what do you think about me.....Ha!

I am one of the last people on earth...

to see: Twilight: New Moon

I went last week.
By myself.
Oh, that's right.
All by my little lonesome.
It was delightful.

Now, as for the movie I loved it
I had a bit of disappointments:
1. All the hype about the Volturi & they were hardly in it.

2. I didn't like how they had Edward appear to Bella instead of just being voices. I know Robert Pattison has to appear in the movie b/c if he didn't I think it would be mass hysteria.

3. The Wolf pack needed to appear more & I think they should have developed the story more, like the book.

It was a long movie so I know adding in what I want would make it like 7 hours long but come on!
I would have sat there & watched.

I did love it tho.
Even the music.

Now I will just be waiting for Eclipse to come out.

I know the end of the saga.
I read all 4 books.
I still find the need to see the movie.

What about you?
Have you seen it?
Have you read it?
Do you want to see it or read it?

Got Resolutions?


  1. Gather all freebie pet supplies to make donation to local shelter at end of year.
  2. Save a minimum of $5 a week. (small but do-able)
  3. Cook dinner at home more often & take lunch to work more often.
  4. Become more organized.
  5. Teach Cheeks his letters so he has letter recognition.
  6. Keep up on the cleaning in the house.

Other odds & end resolutions that aren't worth numbering.

How about you?

What's on your list?
