day 202

Here are a couple strange stories for you...

1. the day I was leaving to go back to LA after Joe's Minneapolis service I was walking in the airport and this guy that look alot like Joe was walking towards me (khaki pants white pressed dress shirt and navy sport coat pulling a small black suitcase salt and pepper hair) I did a double take and when he got closer he smiled at me and said "hi"

2. At the airport again but this time picking up my friend Anne from the by the baggage claim and there was this man yelling "Jill Jill Jill Jill Jill" and I turned to look at him and there was nobody around him for yards and he was just walking and yelling like it was normal. After he passed me he was quiet.

3. I was in NYC walking on the street where there was major construction that was blocking the sidewalk but everyone was waiting for the truck to move and the light to cross the street changed and the lady walking turned and yelled "come this way Jill" again nobody else was around.

These totally could be random things or Joe saying "I'm right here"

day 201

On Tuesday a women in Minneapolis was sentenced to 1 year in the workhouse for driving drunk and killing a man. click here for story

I might be kind of partial to this issue but I think people now a days realize what might happen when your drunk and drive. I truly can't believe that this women only go a 1 in a workhouse and not more jail time. When the government and states get strict on the drunk drivers I believe then people will take this issue seriously.

At the end of March is the trial in LA and I know that there is a chance that the guy who hit Joe could get off but at least he is charged with 15 to life on charge and 15 to life on another. I feel so sad for the family of the guy that died in minneapolis for only getting 1 year in the workhouse.

day 200

I'm buried under a mount of paper work and mail today...I have put it off for too long now I have a huge williams-sonoma bag to go through.

The dog trainer is also coming today to help with Ana. Maybe she has a trick to make Ana sleep through the night.

day 199

So since the cat is out of the bag and my parents now know I have another dog, I'm letting the rest of you who about her.

I got Ana January 2 she is 4 years old. The adoption place I got her from purchased her from a puppy mill auction in Missouri the week of Christmas. So when I got her she had only been out of the puppy mill for a week. She has had puppies i'm not sure how many litters nor what her living conditions were like. She isn't trusting of humans and I still can't sit next to her and pet her, but that will come with time. She has already come a long ways, when I first got her she just sat in the kitchen on her bed not moving. Now she is walking around the house following Foxy and doing everything she does except sit on my lap and beg for carrots.

I will keep you posted on her progress until then enjoy these photos. She as big of a ham as Foxy so it took a while to get photos of her. They both had on vikings jersey's Sunday night but Ana didn't want her photo taken at all, maybe she is a saints fan?

day 194

David Blaine

On saturday morning I went to Time Square and saw David Blaine perform he was raising money for the red cross. He was up for 26 hours when I saw him so he is very tired and not moving much.

There is annoying lady in my video I wanted to tell to shut up I filming this and don't want to listen to you. So when you watch it that isn't me yaking it is an annoying lady. I thought about putting music over it but them you couldn't here David talk.

day 193

Friday I skipped going to Jimmy Fallon and I just went walking around the city, the weather was so nice it was 48 and sunny. I stopped by my favorite dog park then went to Trixie and Peanut doggie store to do some shopping or some spoiling. I got foxy a new fuzzy tunnel bed, of course they are shipping it because there no way it would fit in european very small carry on.

Hmmmm a pink wig for Foxy???

The whole wall was covered in dog heads.

Cute dogs

I love when they jump up and run around the tree.

This is Sadie...I wanted to take her photo but she just jumped up in my lap. Her mom took my photo and Sadie a 6 month old chin that is very soft and fuzzy. The Auntie and mom were pissed cause she doesn't do that to anyone. I wanted to take her home.

day 192

Saturday in NYC I decided to go to the play RACE. I heard about it on the view one day and thought it sounded very interesting and controversial. I only had to stand in the TKTS line for a half and hour to get the tickets. Which is good I thought anyway. I got excellent seats 7 rows from the stage right where James Spader stood and talked a lot. (first photos of my hair) After the play I went out to eat at Union Square Cafe, Yummy!

Me and James Spader

foxy update

I spent 2 1/2 hours at the U of M Vet Emergency Room. Foxy has an infected anal gland. They had to cut it and clean it out. She has an antibiotic cream and medicine along with pain meds that I have to give her for the next 10 days.

She also had to wear a cone around her neck so she doesn't lick it. But since I'm with her for all day I am just watching her. (she looked so sad with the cone on)

I know you wanted NYC stories today but I have to take foxy to the vet she has a very swollen anal gland. I'm not thinking I want to try and deal with that myself. She is in alot of pain and I'm not sure when this happened.

See what happens when I don't take her on trips.

OK who Marked that this was Funny!!!!!!!!!!!!! it is not funny.

dr. oz

sad news I'm not going to be on Dr. Oz now. They analyzed the makeup I use and didn't find any bad Toxins in it so I'm off the segment they want people who use crapy toxin makeup.

I did however ask if I could be assistant of the day...we will see If I get that, it is suppose to be a surprise.

It is good and bad I'm not on there I really didn't want to do something stupid, and I don't have to worry about what I'm going to wear.

January 12, 2010

6 months

Yesterday was 6 months since Joe died. I meant to blog about this for the last blog of 2009 but never got to it. Have you really thought about all the good people that died in 2009? Maybe it is just me but I think it was the year where we lost way to many good people and too young, but then again I'm kind of partial.

The funny part about this is that Joe might not even know who some of these people are...Joe tell Farah and Brittany Murphy hi from me.

day 182 & 183

Here is the new runner on my stairs. I'm not sure if this is the color I ordered but it is growing on my.

January 8, 2010

Dr. Oz

Ok people...I'm now a part of Dr. Oz. I'm not dancing though. I'm doing a segment with him on cosmetics. What the heck did I get myself into?

Since I'm guest I think I can now bring in a camera or my new flip camera. That would be good back stage filming. The also are making arrangement to get me to the show too...Like they are picking me up at the hotel.

Now I need to figure out what I'm going to wear.

day 180

Today the insurance man is coming over to talk to me about my rates increasing. So basically they are raising my rate but I still haven gotten my uninsured motorist money. Not to mention I got screwed on the claim for Joe's bike (the eddy)

I'm in the process of finding a new insurance company...it just moved up on my priority list.

January 7, 2010

day 179

I'm moving into the tech age...I just got a flip camera for NYC and other things. I can't wait to film things around NYC. I just hope I don't forget about and remember at the airport on the way home. (for some reason Joe didn't like video cameras and we could never get one I just used the record feature on my camera)

What would you like me to film or take a picture of?
Where Joe purposed?
Magnolia bakery?
a subway or taxi ride?

I'm typing this as I watch the people choice award with all the mini camera, I wish it was charged so I could film something.

January 6, 2010

day 177 & 178

Well I haven't called the designer yet to look at remodeling my kitchen...so I already broke my new year resolution. How are you guys doing on yours?

It is soo cold here that I haven't been doing much but hibernating. I got another email from Dr. Oz asking if I would like to do a dance segment with him and if I do I need to send in a photo and my contact info. I'm thinking I don't think that I need to dance on national tv. I already danced on Ellen.

January 4, 2010

dr. oz

Hi - I'm going to NYC soon and I'm attending the Dr. Oz show and I just got an email asking if I or anyone I know has a question to ask him....so do you have anyquestions you want me to ask him??? I need to reply by January 6th .

day 176

Hope everyone had a good new years. Mine was really quiet. Went to the neighbors party for a while then came home crawled into bed with Foxy and watched Anderson Cooper on CNN. I never did see the central time zone new year.

I watched a couple movie this past weekend and really enjoyed 500 days of summer. It is an independent film that was a big deal in LA. I just never got to see it when I was there. My friends daughter for film school had to go see it for extra credit. Nice homework if you ask me.

Oh did I mention it is and was freezing here, on new years day it was 79 in LA and yesterday it was 80. Sigh.

A new year

This made me smile for a couple reasons. The guy singing is Dan Wilson (from Semisonic) Which I love and he also does solo concerts and writes for other artist. Enjoy this till Dan takes it off You tube for copyright problems. (via facebook it know this)

Joe and I actually sat next to him out at a resturant on one of our first dates, then after that we would go to all his concerts. We went so much that one time we recoginezed his drummer/bongo player at one of the concert at the zoo. Not to mention he doesn't live that far from me but them again either does Josh Hartnet.

Hope that everyone has a good 2010!
