Dear Remaining Thyroid,

You & I have been through a lot.  And I know that it was really hard for you to see your other half  influenced by an awful huge mass, become ineffective, and then officially removed.  That kind of separation can be hard on anyone.  But Remaining Thyroid, I need more from you, and I am not sure how else to ask.  
I feel as though our relationship is so one-sided.  I try to keep moving forward, and you refuse to give me anything back.  I even started to help you out with some meds.  But I still think you can do more than that.  Our relationship deserves more than that.  And it's time for me to be selfish and say that I deserve more than that. 
Remaining thyroid, I am just so tired.  Tired of this current status and I want to have just one day without 5 hour energies, gallons of coffee, or emergency naps.  And more than anything I want to run again, the kind of running I did to train for marathons.  I know this is a lot for you to handle right now, but honestly, I'm surprised you haven't picked up on how I am feeling and made changes on your own.  
I am not sure what else to say, except I really need you try to make this work.  You need to produce your best effort and really make our relationship a priority.  Or else, I am going to have to completely replace you with meds or maybe even some day remove you all together.  Trust me, I do not want to go to those measures, but I am just not sure how much longer I can do this.  

I hope you take this letter seriously and more than anything, I am here for you.  



Dear Cutler,

I have pondered all week about this.  Just what do I say to you?  Do I include explicit language?  Do I just say, "I told you so"?  Do I feel grateful that I once asked if you were a fat kid and made you carry my purse?  Or do I just simply laugh....along with the rest of the nation?  Decisions, decisions. 

However, I think the tweets and pictures say it all. 

I have to admit Jay, I find pure joy watching your failure.  I experience moments of giddiness when I come across one of these gem pictures and know that there are so many others that think and laugh like me. 

I have loved listening to Mike & Mike and The Drive as they dissect your pouty face expressions, lack of knee brace, and poor leadership.

So now, let's take a look at some of the tweets & comments out there:
  • Alfred Williams, Fmr Bronco, co-host on The Drive - "The game was just too big for Cutler.  Just too Big."
  • Maurice Jones-Drew, Jaguars RB - "All I'm saying is that he can finish the game on a hurt knee... I played the whole season on one...
  • Ross Tucker, Frm Redskin, Brown, Patriot, etc. - "I've hurt my knee playing football 4 times. Never once did I then stand up on sidelines afterwards."
  • Anthony Armstrong, Redskins WR - "Knee-gate in Chicago"
  • Darnell Dockett, Cardinals DL - "If I'm on chicago team jay cutler has to wait till me and the team shower get dressed and leave before he comes in the locker room!"
  • Maurice Jones-Drew, Jaguars RB - "Hey I think the urban meyer rule is effect right now...Whtn the going get tough...QUIT"  (I love the fact this is a Cutler insult...however, I ignore that it also bashes my beloved Meyer.)
  • Mark Schlereth, Frm Bronco, co-host The Drive and ESPN - "As a guy who had 20 knee surgeries you'd have to drag me out on a stretcher to Leave a championship game!"
  • Matt Barnes, Lakers forward -  "I can't believe Jay Cutler hasn't even TRYED (sic) to come back.. This is to go to the Super Bowl.. That's crazy"
  • Roman Oben, former Giants and Bucs OT - "Jay Cutler must answer the critics about his toughness, or lack there of.."
  • Kerry Rhodes, Cardinals safety - "Cmon cutler u have to come back. This is the NFC championship if u didn't know! ... Kerry Rhodes speaks."
  • Derrick Brooks, former Buccaneers LB  - "HEY there is no medicine for a guy with no guts and heart"

Why do I care Jay?  Why did your lack of leadership change the power of Twitter and the Media?  Why did your "fans" burn your jersey?  Well, because it is just so damn disappointing.  
You were right there Jay....With the championship at your freaking fingertips.  And whether your "2nd degree MCL sprain" is legit or not, your demeanor on the sidelines was a joke.  And to finally quote Big Al from The Drive, "As fans, we do not want starters....we want finishers".  Finishers Jay.  Quarterbacks that can take us to the finish line.  Leaders that finish the season with all their bumps and bruises.  Finishers.

So thank you Cutler.  You have made this week very entertaining.

Confessions of the Week

1.  You know what I am so sick of??  The group date - especially the ones where they all film some stupid scenes, have a "party" on top of a building with a pool, too much booze, and lots of crying.  Come on ABC, try something different. these girls ever get to listen to music?  These parties are lame without a Katastic playlist! 

2.  I could marry Emily myself.  Seriously that girl is perfect.  Her story is so heart touching and she is just so darn caring.  I will NOT ruin this season with anything Reality Steve, but I am hoping this gal makes it all the way. 

3.  Modern Family just gets better and better.  I freaking love this show.  This week's episode of the kids walking in on their parents was to die for. 

4.  I watched Off the Map this week and I think it is going to be added to the DVR list.  Anyone else?

5.  I just watched the Tebow Special...again, while having the house to myself tonight.  Thanks ESPN for replaying it JUST for ME.

6.  I was so bitter at Gator Guy for drinking my extra bitter IPA.  But he just made my night by taking time out of the hockey game to text me that my beloved IPA is in the basement.  Love you Gator Guy.  Love love love you IPA (and your 9% alcohol).  "Not your typical statistic, are ya?"  That's what the guy at the liquor store said to me when I quizzed him on what his favorite IPA is. 

7.  I loved the dresses at the Golden Globes this year.  Mostly because I think I need an excuse to dress like a princess.  But I think it's a new trend to step it up and make it more of a glam event. 

8.  Some of the dresses were just Oh-So-Bad.  These celebrities know that everyone is judging.  Do they really look in the mirror and think, damn I look good.  I am SO making the best dressed list. 

9.  I cried (twice) in the last two episodes of How I Met Your Mother.  Way to bring the waterworks.  Even though this is a show that normally makes me laugh, Marshall's dad just passed away and Its a huge tearjerker. 

10. Listening to the tennis grunts at the Australian open makes me uncomfortable.  I pop on the Open, get on my computer, don't pay attention, and then feel awkward that I am suddenly watching something inappropriate.  I get that it can be intense, but why aren't other athletes grunting and Ohhing out on the field.  Does it happen with the hail mary?  What about while dunking on the court?  Or hitting a home run.  Just not hearing why with tennis?!?

To Tweet or Not to Tweet

That is the question. I am not on Twitter....and I do not get it.  Should I?  Should I try it out and tweet it up?  How do some of you use Twitter?  Do you post your blog posts?  Or just random thoughts?  Do I really have time in my life for Twitter?  I leaving it up to you to tell me. 

From Toots to Trains

Tooting.  It's completely a guy thing (ok maybe not only guys...but for this conversation, its a guy thing).  Yes, I am talking about farts.  But little did I's completely a toddler boy thing too!!  It has now been months that Mr. T will give an extra push when we change his diaper and laugh hysterically about it. 

Even better is when both Mr. T and Gator Guy laugh hysterically when the toot is released during a bath and accompanied by a bubble.  Hilarious (to those two at least).  

And it has been a while now that Mr. T has to announce when he toots.  Every time, he smiles and says "TOOT".  However, the latest train of thought (pun intended) is that Toot sounds a lot like Choo Choo.  

So Now...When Mr. T gives that extra push, bubble in the bath, or just lets out a toot naturally, he yells out "Choo Choo Train!! Choo Choo Train"  Pretty darn Funny I must say myself! 

Have we forgotten about the fangs???

This week on bach....two girls hate each other, drink way too much at the cocktail party, cry, make fools out of themselves, cry, get eliminated, and cry.   LAME.  We have seen then again and again.  And what worries me the most about this week's episode is we did not see anything about Madison's crazy fangs.
Seriously.  The Girl Has Fangs!!!  And she just received her 2ND rose!  There is something so incredibly wrong and there must be a secret episode out there that shows it's a joke that everyone is in on.  Because seriously...The Girl Has Fangs!!

But let's just remind ourselves of this season's sweetheart...Emily. (Who I must admit, I TOTALLY judged the barbie book by its cover and thought she was going to be so darn fake.)  Boy was a wrong.  I just love this gal!  Go Emily!!!

What Fuels You??

What fuels me??  Tebow.  Yes sir.  Check out the new commercial from FRS Healthy Energy here:

This premiered tonight during the ESPN special of The Year of the Quarterback - Tim Tebow.  It was amazing.  It was everything I had hoped for.  It showed his unbelievable hard work and determination with every single work out. (Along with some shots of his muscular pecks and rock hard legs...wink wink.)  The amount of effort he put into his release improvement and conditioning to prepare for the NFL draft was inspiring.  He truly believes in himself, his work, his family, and of course his faith.  And you may not have to believe what he does, but its hard not to respect his effort and drive. 

The special even brought tears to my eyes watching his reaction once he knew he was coming to Denver.  Tears of Joy Timmy.  Tears for you. 

But back to the commercial....I obviously love it because it's my beloved future BFF Tebow.  But it also really gets me motivated.  The kind of motivation I get after listening to ACDC Hells Bells or Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train.  Show me this commercial before a race and I know I will run with determination....strength.....Power.  It reminds me of a quote from Lance Armstrong.

"Everybody wants to know what I'm on. What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. What are you on? "

This was on the wall at the 24 Hour Fitness Gator Guy and I used to work out it.  And I freaking loved it.  I would say to myself, "Yeah, Lance...I'm on my ass riding this bike.  Yeah Lance, I'm busting my ass lifting these weights.  Yeah, Lance.  Freaking Yeah."

And so, Yeah fuel me.  Freaking yeah. 

The DVR is set...Its Tebow Time

ESPN is finally showing their special about Tebow tonight and I am Oh-So-Excited. 

I must say I am a little sad that they did not interview me as the most awesome Tebow fan, nor did they even ask for a photo op.  Its ok.  We'll be BFF's soon enough. 

The Hot New Fashion Sensation - Pajama Jeans


Are. You. Freaking. Kidding. Me???  I seriously was waiting for this to be a SNL Mom Jeans commercial.  Nope...All real.  People actually buy and wear these.

No Thank you. 

Must See Monday Night

Monday nights are BACK!!!  YES.  It is so hard to go back to work on a Monday after such fun weekends, and there is really only one thing that keeps me excited about the start of a new week.  

Must See Monday Nights.  Warning - this proves even more that I am a 14 year old at heart.  

1.  The Bachelor - Oh Yummy Brad.  You may talk slow as hell and can't seem to make up your mind, but I am Oh-So-Excited to watch you on Happy Bachelor Mondays. 
2.  How I Met Your Mother - Love love love this show.  I want to hang out with them. 

3.  Pretty Little Liars - Mystery??  high school romance??  Cheesiness??  What more could I ask for!  (Totally makes me 14 at heart)

4.  Greek - This is totally me trying to relive my college years.  That's all.  (Tally it up...14 at heart)

5.  Rules of Engagement - I know, you see David Spade and want to run the other direction.  But don't let that fool you.  This one really is funny.  One of Gator Guy's favorites. 

6.  Gossip Girl - They are not blasting out the new episodes yet, but I have to say, if you haven't seen this one, it is definitely worth checking out.  You will soon just love Blair and Serena's style and Chuck's squinty-constipated looks.  And Heeeelllllooooo Chace Crawford!

How does my DVR even handle all of this madness?!?

FOUR and Twelve

For the first time in Bronco's history, we end with a record of 4-12.  YIKES.  That's definitely a tough one to swallow.  But I'm a glass half full kind of gal.  So let's look at our positives.

1.  This guy is outta here!!

2.  This guy is coming back....The Great Elway will be the Vice President of Football Operations.  Quite the title but basically means he's the man.  He will make all the big decisions about the draft, have an upstairs office, and will show up to work every day.  It is still up in the air as to who will officially replace McD as head coach, but already it feels good to have our Comeback King back at Mile High.

 3.  We are FANtastic - Gator Guy and I attended one of the games we actually won, along with great friends. 

4.  Brandon Lloyd not only made it to the Pro Bowl but leads the NFL in receiving yards. 

5.  We get the #2 draft pick.  Gator Guy says to go for Da'Quan Bowers. 

6.  Lucky Charm - I was at the game for Tebow's first rushing touchdown and first passing touchdown.  I am officially his good luck charm.  Now where are my season tickets!!  

7.  There's always next year....GO BRONCOS

Ps...I think I might have to add these Stadium Stompers to my collection!!
