Matt Lauer was riding his bike over the weekend, when a deer jumped in front of his ass which caused him to flip over the handlebars and freaked up his shoulder. Deer: 1, Lauer: 0.

Meredith Viera thought it was really effing hilarious and joked about it on Today this morning when she explained why he wasn't at work. Meredith said, "Matt's banged up with a displaced shoulder, it popped out. Hopefully he'll be on the mend soon." Meredith said Matt thinks the animal was hired as a hit deer by the competition. Meredith added, "I hired the deer. Just graze him.'"

Ha ha ha ha. I like her.

Amy Poehler’s 8 Simple Rules for Being a New Yorker

1. Be nice to everyone, especially people wearing hospital bracelets.

2. Don’t ask white girls if they “left their ass at home.”

3. If you have to bring your baby to a movie, make sure he laughs at appropriate times.

4. Don’t eat Cheetos and then sit down at a fancy hotel piano.

5. If you are in Central Park and think you are getting mugged, first check to see if maybe you’re just part of a student film.

6. If you see Oprah at a fancy function, don’t grab her wrist and ask for money. Quietly sneak up behind her and whisper, “You give me that money, Oprah. You hear me?”

7. When walking on a New York street, try not to spit, litter, bleed, or take a crap.

8. If you need to do any of these things, try to do it between two parked cars.

Our 9 yr old wore this hat yesterday to school for hat day. While I was helping her get dressed, she told me she wanted to wear it sideways like "the French women do." So, I showed her how to place the hat on her head so the bill of the cap was slightly off center. Well, she left the bathroom and walked through the kitchen and asked Dunnski if her hat was "too gansta?" He laughed and told her hat was anything BUT gansta. She always keeps us on our toes!

Junior year Biology...

I can remember the day we dissected our frogs in Biology class like it was yesterday. Melissa Eldridge was my partner, and she was just as happy as I was to be cutting into our little green amphibian friend. It was disgusting and the smell was worse than disgusting. It was that day I decided I could not have a future career as a coroner.

Don't make the President angry...

Yesterday, in a speech which was intended to launch initiatives to help small businesses deal with the economic crisis, President Obama strongly criticized AIG.

"All across the country, there are people who work hard and meet their responsibilities every day, without the benefit of government bailouts or multimillion-dollar bonuses," he said.

"And all they ask is that everyone, from Main Street to Wall Street to Washington, play by the same rules."

At one point in his speech, he was so angry that he was banging his fist on the podium. All I have to say is...Don't make the President angry....

And if hear one more person say Obama is doing too much too soon, I am going to scream. What exactly does it take to make some people happy? Either he is doing 'too much' or 'not enough'. He will never win in the eyes of some.

Can a girl get a fork????

I had my 6 month check up at the dentist this morning. Uuugghh!

After I left, I celebrated my clean teeth with a trip to McDonald's to get some yummy cinnamelts and a sweet tea! Mmmm Mmmm Good!

After I had acquired a sufficient sugar and caffeine fix from sucking down a large amount of tea....I reached in the bag for my oh so heavenly biscuits drizzled with icing.

I feel the box...I feel napkins....I don't feel utensils...WTF!

Now, I know I shouldn't be driving and eating...but I can multitask and I my knees are very good drivers. Sooo...I ate them with my fingers. And let me tell you, they were just as good as eating them the fancy smancy way with a fork.

So there....McDonald's woman who forgot to put the fork in my bag this morning. You did not stop me from enjoying clogging my arteries and my knees from driving me to work.

It's no wonder I have grey hairs...

this morning I laid out an outfit for our 9 year old for school. She quickly told me she didn't want to wear what I chosen for her because it was not 'appealing enough'. I am not sure who she is trying to appeal in the 3rd grade...but she wore my unappealing outfit to school anyway.

This evening after dinner, she asked me how hard it was for me to wash my clothes in the creek on a washboard when I was little. I smiled at her and told her washing machines had been invented several years before I was even born. She said "really?" Talk about making someone feel OLD!

Work was a little boring today....

Sooooo....Henry drew the short straw and had to wear a thong and be all glittered up in the bathroom of the workout room. I would tell you what he had to next...but then I would have to kill you. It really isn't worth it. Trust me.

Love. This. Song.

I hate it when this happens...

Quote of the day...

Maybe crying is a means of cleaning yourself out emotionally. Or maybe it’s your communication of last resort; the only way to express yourself when words fail the same as when you were a baby and had no words.
— Aristotle

Jess and Ang...

I am home from work today...I turn on All My Children, and there they are.

Ohh...how I have missed my daytime stories. Now if only Luke and Laura are reunited on GH...everything will be right with the world again!
