The reference from the last post about the dirty sock water coffee comes from a delightfully raucous animated series called "Rocko's Modern Life" specifically from the episode "The Emperor's New Joe" in which the Cameleon Brothers open up their own coffee shop and it is a huge snooty, artsy hit. Rocko goes there for some of this famous coffee and declares that it tastes like dirty sock water and almost lets the cat out of the bag - because it IS dirty sock water!!

I absolutely ADORE that series, and would have it on DVD in a heartbeat - if they would actually put it on DVD. It's a conspiracy I tell you!

Speaking of coffee, the coffee that I ordered is now in transit via UPS. Three more days until...


And it is supposed to be enough to make 42 full pots of coffee, so I will be in coffee heaven for awhile! :D


GO HERE TO ACTUALLY SEE AN EPISODE!!!! Thanks SSB! I suggest "Fortune Cookie".

oh! rocko's modern life! I LOVED THAT CARTOON!

and I remember that episode now. D'OH!

Sylvana said...

ESC, there was an online petition to get Rocko on DVD. I signed it last year, but I guess that hasn't helped. Seriously, what is wrong with Nickelodeon??

Shannon said...

::gasp:: I never saw Rocko's modern life. I should be ashamed.

sideshow bob said...

Nick is owned by MTV...that's the problem.

And you're welcome!

Sylvana said...

Shannon, enjoy an episode at YouTube! I have some on VHS, but I don't know if there is a player that can run them. That VHS recorder was kind of funky.

SSB, YouTube rocks!! Thanks!!

Ron Nasty said...

I has seen a couple episodes a while back when they used to show it on Nick when Connor and Cody would stay over. Tom Kenney, who also does the voice for Spongebob did the voice for Rocko. Yes, I am into cartoon voice actors.

sands of time said...

I remember my kids watching Rocko when they were little.

Michael Manning said...


Sylvana said...

Ron Nasty, I didn't know that. I love SpongeBob too. But I don't think it is as good as Rocko.

PinkLady, I'm just a big kid myself.

Michael Manning, so sorry so late on the welcome, but thanks for the B-day wishes!

Happy Birthday To ME!!

Sunday, March 26, 2006 | 0 Comments

It's my birthday today. So everyone has to be nice to me.

I actually started celebrating Thursday when I had a dinner/movie party with a good friend who both SSB and I adore immensely. We made breaded fish, broccoli and cheese poppers, steamed kale and broccoli with cilantro topped with romano cheese (delicious!), and Avacado Margherita (not a Margerita, but absolutely fantastic!! *drool*).

We watched "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" with Ellen Burstyn. It was a quirky movie that I thought was also rather progressive considering the era that it was made in. But that is why Martin Scorsese is so great. I really loved the way that he captured the mother/son relationship. Throughout the movie I was thinking that was a lot like the relationship that JD and I have. A very honest portrayal. We didn't realize until she got to Tucson that this movie was what sparked the TV show "Mel's Diner". It was a lot of fun comparing what they did in the televised version versus the movie.

It was really nice to be able to see my friend again. She has been living out in the woods for several months and I missed having our get togethers. I didn't know that she was coming for a visit, so it was a nice surprise birthday gift! She was leaving on Friday to go back to the woods and I won't see her again until June so it was really great to see her.

On Friday SSB and I had a meeting at the school for JD. I really don't want to get into the details, but it was about their concern about how "not normal" he was. I was pretty content with the way that I laid down the law, so I'm racking that up as a good thing for me.

And Friday night I got nearly to the end of a video game that I had been playing - Pokemon XD (I LOVE Pokemon - so SHUT UP! It's my birthday!!). My son kept telling me to keep going even though I was half asleep. But I beat their butts even though I was semi-catatonic on the couch.

Then Saturday we went to my favorite place to buy clothes, our thrift store in town,
where I got an adorable peasant style dress!! I'm so excited. I can't wait until it is warm enough to wear it.

Because of the style, it makes me look chunkier than I actually am, BUT it also makes me look bustier, so I guess I'll take that as a good thing.

I love that store. It always has great clothes in my size. About 1/3 of my closet right now is thrift store finds from that store. I always get compliments on everything I buy there. :)

After shopping, we went to Red Lobster, where I ordered Parrot Bay Coconut Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi and crab cakes (which aren't on the menu - you have to be in the know and ask your waitress for them). Everything was delicious! Bugs-o-the-Sea -- YUMMMMMMYYY!!!!

Then we went home, cracked open a bottle of Mirassou wine, and put a puzzle together. SSB and I have never been wine fans (except for Balatore Gran Spumante - OH YUMMMY!!), but like every other wine novice that has seen "Sideways" we ran out immediately and bought a bunch of wines to try and become connoisseurs. Mirassou, so far, is the only one that was even remotely pleasant. We've decided that most people are just in denial about how bad wine actually tastes. Sort of like the coffee shop coffees that we have tried because everyone tells us how fabulous they are, but it actually tastes like dirty sock water*.

The puzzle was a 500 piece glow in the dark puzzle. We had a blast putting it together as a family (no Mirassou for JD though -- he had Cherry Coke). I think that I would like to do things like that more often. Working together as a team. Practicing communication skills. Joking and giggling. :)

We got a call from another friend that I hadn't seen in awhile. He wanted to go out with us that night, but unfortunately also had a wedding reception to go to. He was hoping that he could sneak out early, so he said that he would call us and let us know what was up. Well, his daughter wanted to stay longer, so he told her that they could. I had told him not to worry, and that I'd rather go out next weekend anyway. He said, "Done deal." I'm looking forward to it. Although we run into each other from time to time while we are about town during the day, we haven't gotten together to socialize in quite some time and I always have a great time with him. I can't wait!

Today, we walked to DQ and bought a cake for me. It's a lovely cake, isn't it? And I saved $2! Sweet! I love this design. It reminds me that spring is almost here. I'm getting anxious for that.

And the best part about this cake was that it has EXTRA FUDGE!!! I LOVE FUDGE!!

I also ordered some of my favoritest coffee in the whole wide world -- Farmer Brothers. And as I am very fussy about my coffee, so you know this is GREAT coffee. I can't wait until it comes. They are shipping it UPS so I should get it sometime this week. Ummmm... coffee!!

And my dad called to wish me a happy birthday... uh, and to have me update his webpage. Yeah, you know I'm loved!

*points to anyone who may know what this references.


OldRoses said...

Happy Birthday!! Sounds like it was/is fabulous. I can't decide which I like better, the dress or the cake. And thanks for the giggle. I'm so old that I saw that movie BEFORE I saw the spinoff TV show! So, once again, Happy Birthday and here's to many more . . .

evilsciencechick said...

hmmm...dirty sock water...

is that from south park? the tweak's coffee episode?

and...HAPPY BIRTHDAY SYLVANA! save some cake for meeeeeeeee!

Sylvana said...

OldRoses, that movie came out when I was two. And I LOVE my new dress, so it made me happy that you liked it too!

ESC, older than South Park, but it is from an animated series (not the obvious Simpsons though -- although I guess they did do everything)

sideshow bob said...

I know what it references, but I won't spoil your little game!

Happy birthday, sweetie! I love love you!

Sylvana said...

SSB, of course you would know this. You are my other half!
And we totally have to get that on DVD if it ever comes out. It's a conspiracy I tell you!!


The Doc said...

Happy Birthday, Sy! Sounds like you had a really good time. And as for the animated show, I'm going to guess Daria? I'm probably wrong, but I think I remember something like that...

Sylvana said...

The Doc, thanks! I did!

I never watched Daria. The show I'm talking about was on Nickelodeon.

Flubberwinkle said...

Happy Birthday, Sylvana!
Cake looks great! Hope you have a post-birthday party clebration as well!

Otto Man said...

Happy Birthday. And hey, who doesn't love fudge?

"AG" said...

Happy Birthday! I should have a DQ cake in your honor! :)

Shamus O'Drunkahan said...

Happy Birthday! I got nothin funny to add to that.

Shannon said...

Last night, I went to Dairy Queen and immediately thought of you guys. (I bought a box of cherry dilly bars and a butterfinger blizzard) It must have been a psychic celebration of your birthday!! Happy birthday. Your weekend sounds like it was fabulous!

I'm one of those people who like wine. I don't like sweet wines though...I always thought I hated wine because I'd always try the sweet stuff...I discovered I like a dry, red wine.

Sylvana said...

Flubberwinkle, I'm working on it! I'm supposed to go out with my friends this weekend since they weren't free last weekend. And I'm getting a new cell phone and a delivery of my favorite coffee this week! YAY!!

Otto Man, I would think them very strange indeed!

AG, we always think of you when we go to DQ now. DQ ROCKS!

Shamus, well, it's hard to have material all the time. Thanks for the birthday wishes.

Shannon, see, and I hate the dry stuff. I love sweet sparkling wines. And that's about where my love for wines ends. Unless its in something or mixed with something.
Hope you got your goods home safely.

sands of time said...

it sounds like you had an awesome birthday Sylvana.

Lyvvie said...

Happy Birthday!!!

Hope you had a super special day, ate lots of extra fudge *drool* and had lots of Laugh-Out-Loud moments where you can't breath and almost pee, (but you don't pee and you catch your breath.)

I agree, wine is icky.

"AG" said...

Sy, I can't think of a lovelier compliment than you two thinking of me at DQ. :)

Happy birthday, Schmoopy Angel Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter!!!!!

And was the "sock water" reference from Ren and Stimpy?

Sylvana said...

PinkLady, I like to celebrate!

Lyvvie, I like laughing till I almost pee, but don't. We do a lot of laughing in our family.

AG, you are welcome!

Irb, aw! Thanks, that's so squishy!
And you are close, but it is a show that never made it to DVD. It's a conspiracy I tell you!! It is a show where the characters are animals.

Hi Sylvana
Happy Birthday. I know you like gardening and are looking forward to sprintime !!so I have attempted this birthday poem for you !! as SSB's sweetheart. I hope you like it .

Spring is in the air in the rustle of breeze
Spring in the air in the whispers of the trees
And I know natures coming so soon
To deliver to you her sweet blooms

Spring is in the air, so make your fresh start
Spring is in the air so grow your sweet heart
And I know natures coming so soon
To deliver to you her sweet blooms

Spring is in the air, birds in the sky
Spring is in the air, call to you as they fly
And I know natures coming so soon
To deliver to you her sweet blooms

Birds call you back to mother sweet earth
To plant many flowers from your fresh dirt
And I know natures coming so soon
To deliver to you her sweet blooms

Sonia said...

Happy Birthday, Sylvana. A belated congratulations to you!
(((Many hugs)))

Sylvana said...

Thanks Astrid, Lindsay, and Sonia! I had a great birthday!

Matter of Perspective

Tuesday, March 21, 2006 | 0 Comments

As my birthday approaches (just 5 more days) and I am that much closer to having that extra year tacked onto my age, I am increasingly more irritated to hear the frequent comment-



Thanks for implying that I am too old to have a husband that looks that young. Oh, that's not my husband, that's my grandson.


But then I had a conversation the other day that got me thinking a little differently.

A coworker, an older lady, asked me who I had left with at lunch. She said, "was that your, uh, boyfriend?"

I told her that he was my husband.

She says, "That was your husband?! He looks so young!"

I was a little irritated, but joked, "Oh, no. My boyfriend is way younger."

She says, "Oh, you have one of those too? I won't tell."

I laughed.

She said that she thought he must be my boyfriend, not a husband, since we were having so much fun together. She asks me how long we have been married. I told her over twelve years.

She says, "Oh my gosh! You have been married that long and you still have fun together? That is something special."

That really got me thinking. People must be assuming that for him to be my husband he must be far older than me and not so much fun. I had never thought about that before, but most women marry men that are far older than them and are more like fathers than friends. So, perhaps what people are saying isn't that he is so young compared to me, but that he is so young compared to what they had assumed a husband should be.

She is right. What we have is very special and I am grateful for it.
Thanks, SSB, for staying my "boyfriend" all these years and not turning into a "husband"!


evilsciencechick said... guys are so cute!

Kev and I will stay young, goofy, and immature if you guys will too, OK? ;)

"AG" said...

I robbed the cradle. I like them younger.

The two of you are adorable and wonderful together. But the real issue is HOW OLD WILL YOU BE? oops... ;)

Shamus O'Drunkahan said...

I once slipped and called my wife "my girlfriend" in a joking way once in front of strangers and she got wicked pissed. I'd much rather be referred to as her "Boy Toy" than her old man or husband.

sands of time said...

its wonderful you 2 are still in love after all that time.

Sylvana said...

ESC, it is a deal!!

AG, SSB is twelve days older. Actually my age is in my profile. I will be 34. And THANKS!! We do sicken people.

Shamus, was it because she thought you wanted to sound more available? It was weird after we got married. I had a hard time calling him my husband for years. It just felt wrong.

PinkLady, I knew exactly what I was looking for in a guy, what would make me truly happy, and was just lucky that I found him so early in my life. That was another example of "The Force". Out of high school I was originally intending to go to the school I just graduated from, but ended up choosing the "Midwest Ivy League School" at the last minute because of a strong feeling that I got. It is a really good thing that I trust in "The Force". :D

sideshow bob said...

I prefer to think of myself as a kept man.

DrMax said...

I prefer the term "cabana boy".

"AG" said...

Oh you mean you put your *real* age in your profile?! I did too but now that I think of it, I may change it to 21.

Lindsay Lobe said...

Don’t worry about such trifling matters; rejoice in your freedom and relaxation together.

I think maybe SSB is your best friend, and if that be the case you have wonderful relationship, maybe your heavenly twin, (marriage made in heaven!!) so who cares if he looks very young!!

Here is stab at few thoughts.

Mind continues with your new blog start
Mind is rewarded by posts from SSB ’s warm heart
Mind is refreshed, as 2 common spirits will find
Mind now enlightened is your continuing sign

Thoughts now explain it’s time to let go
Thoughts that allow 2 new spirit to grow
Thoughts to find room for 2 spirits new space
Thoughts now accept all the challenges you face

Sweep through your day with your heavenly twin
Sweep through your day to a new daily spin
Sweep through your day and embrace your sweet- heart
Sweep through your day like the worlds at your feet

Your mood is surprise, for SSB moves are so fast
Your mood please confirm is your freedom at last
You mood is surprise, for your world changes fast
Your mood I suspect is a free spirit at last

I don’t have the answers, just words for your ear
I think life is mystery, its meaning not clear
Can I sense your mood change that moment at last
Your mind is so free from hot winds of the past

Shannon said...


I'd assumed SSB was your son.

Just kidding. That was a bad joke. They can't all be winners.

This was very sweet.

sands of time said...

Well im coming around now to wish you a Happy Birthday for Sunday.

Tayster said...

Happy early Birthday. I was a day late for Sideshow's, so being two days early with you should make all things right.

eveningmist said...

I came through June´s blog...and read that it is or it was your Birthday from North Coast of Spain ,too;)..
Best wishes,
Maria you could also pay me a visit there..!!

Sylvana said...

SSB, you are a keeper.

DrMax, I was actually going to use that term in my post. I love that skit that they would do on Mad TV.

AG, you look 21.

Lindsay, SSB is my best friend. We are Yin and Yang.

Shannon, you wouldn't be the first person to assume that. My current employer asked me that when she first saw him.

PinkLady, thanks! I will have a happy one.

Tayster, thanks! Late well wishes are just as welcome.

Romasanta, thanks! And welcome to my blog! I'll be sure to check out yours.

Galway Bay

If you ever go across the sea to Ireland
Then maybe at the closing of your day
You will sit and watch the moon rise over Claddagh
And see the sun go down on Galway Bay

Just to hear again the ripple of the trout stream
The women in the meadow making hay
And to sit beside a turf fire in the cabin
And watch the barefoot gossoons at their play

For the breezes blowing o'er the seas from Ireland
Are perfumed by the heather as they bloom
And the women in the uplands diggin' praties
Speak a language that the strangers do not know

For the stranger came and tried to teach us their way
They scorned us just for being what we are
But they might as well go chasing after moonbeams
Or light a penny candle from a star

And if there's going to be a life hereafter
And somehow I am sure there's going to be
I will ask my god to let me make my heaven
In that dear land across the Irish sea

best wishes

Three Question Personality

Thursday, March 16, 2006 | 0 Comments

How can your answers to just three questions decifer your personality?
I don't know, but holy-whosit! They did it!!

Your Personality Is

Rational (NT)

You are both logical and creative. You are full of ideas.
You are so rational that you analyze everything. This drives people a little crazy!

Intelligence is important to you. You always like to be around smart people.
In fact, you're often a little short with people who don't impress you mentally.

You seem distant to some - but it's usually because you're deep in thought.
Those who understand you best are fellow Rationals.

In love, you tend to approach things with logic. You seek a compatible mate - who is also very intelligent.

At work, you tend to gravitate toward idea building careers - like programming, medicine, or academia.

With others, you are very honest and direct. People often can't take your criticism well.

As far as your looks go, you're coasting on what you were born with. You think fashion is silly.

On weekends, you spend most of your time thinking, experimenting with new ideas, or learning new things.
The Three Question Personality Test


Blogger sideshow bob said...

Your Personality Is
Idealist (NF)

You are a passionate, caring, and unique person.
You are good at expressing yourself and sharing your ideals.

You are the most compassionate of all types and connect with others easily.
Your heart tends to rule you. You can't make decisions without considering feelings.

You seek out other empathetic people to befriend.
Truth and authenticity matters in your friendships.

In love, you give everything you have to relationships. You fall in love easily.

At work, you crave personal expression and meaning in your career.

With others, you communicate well. You can spend all night talking with someone.

As far as your looks go, you've likely taken the time to develop your own personal style.

On weekends, you like to be with others. Charity work is also a favorite pastime of yours.

Mine isn't as accurate as yours...oh well.

Whatever will they quiz for next!?!
I'm Hot, I mean an Idealist, according to this quiz. I'm glad I escaped being labelled a psychopath!

"As far as looks go, you should look into plastic surgery. You take good care of yourself, but you still look really, really fat."

OK Syl, it may be accurate, but I don't think it had to be so mean.

March 17, 2006 4:39 AM

wait a minute. That saying couldn't have been more true yesterday!!

This was my garden yesterday after my family and I cleaned it up for the spring. We had a beautiful 60 degree weekend. It just felt like spring was on its way.

That was until later that night. Around 8pm, just 3 hours after I took the first picture it began to snow.

And snow.


We got over a foot of snow -- probably closer to 18 inches.

The power went out all over town, including the library where I work. But I still went in and hung out with the few workers that also managed to make it in. We drank coffee & tea and chatted until the power came back on over an hour later.

Then it was off to my other job. I thought I was going to get lost on the walk there. The wind made it almost impossible to even see as it whipped the icy snow at me, and the only places to walk were the ruts in the road made by trucks that managed to get through and even then it was difficult walking and deep with snow.

At my next job it was so slow that I actually finally got caught up on the growing mountain of work! I'm so excited to finally see the bottom of that pile!! Woohoo!

AND my boss bought lunch! Yeah, I love working there.

I helped a guy get his car out of a snow bank. He had been sitting there for ten minutes and no one would stop to help him, so finally I offered. Less than 30 seconds after I got behind the wheel to drive while he pushed, a car load of guys jumped out to offer to help get my car out. It wasn't MY car! But I was glad that I could use my feminine wiles to help out a dude in distress.

When I got home SSB and I went for a walk to the bank to make some deposits and take some pictures along the way. Well, the bank was closed due to the weather -- bummer-- but I got some cool pictures.

What did we get at DQ? It's SSB's birthday tomorrow, so we got an ice cream cake of course! Here's SSB next a snow pile in the middle of the road.

We had Batman cake and hot cocoa for dinner. Mmmm....

Lyvvie, DQ ice cream cake is my FAVORITE!! I'm getting one for my birthday too. Which is a couple weeks from now.

Get a picture of that snowman!! SSB collects snowman pictures. Especially the murdered ones.

I'll see if I can't send some of this snow your way so the plow drivers families won't go hungry.

I was at first surprised that you walked home with an ice cream cake (in Vegas you can't even drive one home) without it melting...this must be what it feels like when people come to Vegas and see slot machines at the grocery store.

I love days like that, when the weather turns everything upside down and you can just sit back and drink tea and eat ice cream cake with people.

Everytime I see pictures like these, it makes me long for a colder climate...I'm crazy. I know.

SSB had this quiz over on his blog. I knew before even taking the quiz who I would be. I mean, it is SO obvious! But my question is, does this mean that we are participating in an unholy union?

You Are Lisa Simpson

A total child prodigy and super genius, you have the mind for world domination.

But you prefer world peace, Buddhism, and tofu dogs.

You will be remembered for: all your academic accomplishments

Your life philosophy: "I refuse to believe that everybody refuses to believe the truth"

I'm Krusty the Klown...I am very unsure about this. I'm sure it has to do with the "wild and brightly coloured" hair choice.

Irb, glad to see that you could do the math.
