The other guy who fixed the wall beneath the stucco earlier this week did some acrobatics of his own which I unfortunately didn't capture on film. He was standing on the railing of the balcony, holding a 30 foot piece of wood, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.
I can't imagine how bad you could possibly want a cigarette at the point where you are willing to smoke one on what is essentially a balance beam 2 stories high . But instead of a padded mat below you, it's slate steps and concrete.
Oh, and of course no hard hats were worn. Safety is overrated!

Check out the menu on the link here.
We started with a delicious appetizer sampler, filled with several things I can't pronounce and 5 delicious dipping sauces, pictured below. Yum + Variety = What more could you want?!
And next, because no one would believe me that we should share entrees, we ordered enough food to find 12 people...for the 3 of us. We will be having leftover Thai for lunch and
sensible snacks for the rest of the week. The doggy bag alone probably weighed 10 pounds.
Even though I'm a total newbie to Wilmington, I am going to go ahead and say I know enough to recommend this place to anyone. The inside of the restaurant is great, very Thai/Vietnamese inspired. But the back of the restaurant is awesome sauce. You can get your own personal little Tiki huts to eat in. I've been told this is most luscious during the Spring or Fall when you won't be dripping sweat into your Moo Goo Gai Pan.
Try this place! It was truly amazing service, excellent food, and good company. Just trust me when I say that sharing an entree is still more than enough food for two people. Despite how un-fun that may sound to begin with, I promise you'll be able to breath much better if you share.

Her claims to fame include being able to wear XL Boys' board shorts and being a former stage manager. I mean, my God, she was a stage manager. She talked about how being a stage manager has affected her personality like a 4-star Military General might talk about why he likes strict order. The only difference is that on the one hand, you're leading our country's bravest and strongest into battle. And on the other, you are a thespian groupie wearing a headset, most likely because you didn't get an actual part in the stage production.
She also talked about her "trainers", both Brazilian and Japanese, as if she was a prize-winning cage fighter...not a water aerobics instructor at a Yacht Club in North Carolina.
Oh and in case you didn't know, the United States is decades behind Europe in the scientific developments of
According to this article, Mariah Carey had a long-awaited GNO (girls night out) after giving birth to twins in April.

Well ladies, the end is nigh. Thursday will be my grand finale in water aerobics, because my mom is leaving that day and I refuse to go to a 50+ year old class without a blood-related chaperone.
Next week I will be cracking eggs and taking names. And, God willing, purchasing a pair of chef pants.
10 years ago last week, Mariah sauntered onto the TRL stage to an unsuspecting Carson Daly, finally available in this video.

We got to talking and I decided that if I ever die an untimely death, I want all my money to go to a scholarship for the less fortunate. It will go towards their
It will be called the Mamacita Foundation for Lusciousness.

That is a way uncool joke as a mom and a human. Maybe she forgot to read that chapter in Parenting 101 that says, "Don't put the carseat facing forward, and Don't sell your kids on the Internet."
'Mariah Carey, who gave birth to twins in April, is ''done'' with having kids, and has threatened to 'kill' husband Nick Cannon if he makes her give birth again.'
That's the right idea Mariah. Because being a single mom, incarcerated, with twins after killing your husband is better than enduring the miracle of birth one more time.
The beauty of Mariah is that she's not just classy, she's also rational.

I do not know how this is even a real story, and it's quite disgusting, but it's understandable that CNN would give a 4:00+ minute slot to this woman because it's not like there are debt crises, civil wars, or natural disasters all over the globe....

And that's all she wrote...I hope you enjoyed your divalicious trip across the pond! Happy Friday and Happy travels.
This trip was easy and wonderful. Aside from the kicky Indian kid that sat next to me and karate chopped my seat and tray table for 8 hours. I finally reached my limit after 7 hours and told him to stop. It didn't work.
Everybody Dance Now!
This was more babysitting. (Out of order b/c computers are stupid). The only rule of our babysitting club was that if you stop dancing you have to go to sleep. L'trally. We are so strict!
My cousin lives in England and we babysat her kids one night. First of all, British kid accents are sooo much cuter than American. If they were ever being annoying, I had no idea because their accents are so sophisticated. My sister is also
