Working Girl

by Marinka on November 6, 2009

I’ve been mulling over a  few post ideas  for the coming weeks, and I thought that t I would tell you the topics that I am considering and you’d tell me what is most interesting, or maybe  least uninteresting. Ready?

1.  Whenever someone says, “you may be pleasantly surprised,”  you won’t be.

2. I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress. I was pleasantly surprised.  Except I almost killed someone.

3.  I need to lose weight.  Want to know the conversation with mama that made me decide? With some side comments from Husbandrinka.

4.  Nicki’s bedtime ritual.  Ferber, anyone?

5. Peri-menopause.  Husbandrinka wants to know “how long this bullshit is going to last”.   For some strange reson, he is not soothed by an estimate expressed in terms of years.

6.  In the news:  Carly Simon sings to her surgeon boyfriend’s patients before surgery to soothe them.  (Hey, how come Michael Jackson didn’t consider that form of relaxation?)

7. Mama and papa’s crazy former assistant.  Who said fun things like, “I know there’s a famine, but the Ethiopians are looking fantastic!”

8. Update on Looka, my parents’ newest Doberman baby.  And my nemesis.

So, please let me know what you think.  And if you have a chance check this out. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that this isn’t something that I usually do, so please go and leave me a comment so that the other Mouthys don’t make fun of me and make me wear the curlers.  Thanks.

anything that involves a conversation with your mama is good. and i’m liking the assistant, i think she might be scarily insightful. or maybe insightful isn’t the word i’m looking for.

I want to hear it all. That way we might be pleasantly surprised.

Nina November 6, 2009 at 5:51 am

Most interested in 7, with 3 a close second (mostly out of curiosity about whether your husband’s helpful comments are anything like mine. Z especially favours comparing me to a washing machine in weight terms.)

Would like to hear about almost killing someone and the peri-menopause. Oh and the parental assistant. Thank you.


November 6, 2009 at 6:50 am

These ALL sound hilarious. I’m laughing just at the synopsis. 🙂

I’m really pulling for the conversation with Mama.


pam November 6, 2009 at 8:47 am

Looka followed by ‘whatever could your husband say about your weight????’

christy November 6, 2009 at 8:50 am

I’d be most interested in numbers 2,7, and 8!

I vote for #7. I can only imagine…


November 6, 2009 at 9:49 am

2, 3, and 7 are my faves, but honestly, it was hard to choose. Your husband would have loved my change of life. I skipped peri-menopause completely and went through 100% Old Woman Full On Menopause in the space of about 6 months without even knowing it, until we tried to get pregnant again and the doctor said -you are post-menopausal, you have the ovaries of a 54 yr old woman- and we were like WHAT THE FUCK?

I’m still bitter. I don’t know about peri-menopause, but premature menopause sucks.

I’m partial to number 7…….


November 6, 2009 at 10:43 am

I need a new list. I don’t like any of those choices. Thankyouverymuch.

i vote for #9: how to turn your notes into a blog post when you’re too busy to write.

Everyone relates to “I need to lose weight,” real or imagined. Also, your interpretation of mama’s thoughts are always enjoyable.


Maelstrom November 6, 2009 at 11:34 am

I’d like to hear about #2 please. Wait, I mean #2 from the list above.. not any other “#2” you might have been considering.


Maureen@IslandRoar November 6, 2009 at 5:22 pm

You should write about them all. Frankly, you could write about anything and I’ll read it.
Altho, living on the Vineyard, I happen to know C. Simon’s surgeon boyfriend’s ex-wife. So, altho I am a Carly fan, I’d rather not hear about that one (but you know I’ll read it anyway) because the ex wife rocks. But I hear he’s an amazing surgeon (trying to be fair here).
Mama and Papa always win. And your new sib.

Carly Simon has a boyfriend?

Also, I want an assistant.

Yes, please.

And let me tell you – I am SO GLAD you left that Blogger shit behind. I HATE having to log into google in order to leave a comment. Now I’ll comment daily, and possibly even kiss you next time I see you. Seeing as you hate hugs and all.

Sophie November 7, 2009 at 4:42 am

I want to read about them all!
I’m greedy that way.


Jonathan November 7, 2009 at 1:57 pm

I was going through the list thinking I would like to read about any of them until I got to the assistant and I am thinking that is the winner for me!


Lulu November 8, 2009 at 7:31 pm

Number 3, please! Gaining weight is always more fun… I did manage to lose 45 pounds, though. I bet my conversations weren’t as blog worthy… 🙁


Whitney November 8, 2009 at 8:01 pm

I just moved my blog to wordpress also. I love wordpress, but we are still getting to know each other. Reading your post was awesome because these three:

1. Whenever someone says, “you may be pleasantly surprised,” you won’t be.

2. I moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress. I was pleasantly surprised. Except I almost killed someone.

3. I need to lose weight. Want to know the conversation with mama that made me decide? With some side comments from Husbandrinka.

could have been pulled right out of my head. Except for the side comments thingy.

I can’t wait for 3, 4 and 7!
