"Since y'all talked about me not being in the playoffs the last 4 years…I'm in…it's sweet, but you know what…I've got a job to do, and my job is to make sure that we're ready to go in Minnesota…playing against a tough team…one of our former coaches, and we just have to grab this opportunity, because this isn't just something that we're happy to be in, we want to stay in!"

share-bare: Awe, they don't have my donut anywaysJayJay: What's your donut?share-bare: I don't know if I'm pronouncing it right. I think it's called a cruderJayJay: WTF is a cruder?! I don't even think there's such a thing, share-bareshare-bare: There is!! I swear! Its called a frenchie cruder or something. LOL!
[We both are walking away laughing. Barb, who was also in the kitchen quietly preparing her breakfast laughs in the background] ...[Minutes later, Jason decides to ask RoRo upstairs if she has any "cruders"][We walk upstairs towards her office...]
JayJay: C'mon. Let's go upstairs. RoRo said she has some cruders for us. share-bare: See! She even knows what it is. Let's go.
JayJay: She said she would normally get three but she didn't want to be selfish so she got two.
share-bare: Umm cuz aren't we only allowed ONE donut per person? How is taking two going to make it any better? LOL
RoRo: Hey guys! What's up?
[She points to her plate containing 2 quiches]share-bare: Hi RoRo! Where's my cruder?
LOL!RoRo: Here you go!
share-bare: That's not a cruder! That's quiche!
JayJay: See RoRo is just as bad as you, share-bare. LOL!
RoRo: I thought cruder was just a fancy name for this...
JayJay: Uh no, that's quiche.
RoRo: Sh*t! I'm Mexican. You really think I would know how quiche looks like?!
share-bare: Why don't people know what I'm talking about?!
JayJay: Cuz maybe it's not called a cruder!
LOL! [The three of us take a stroll towards the reception area to visit share bear #1]share-bare: It's a cruder! I swear!
share-bare: I bet you share-bear #1 would know!
We explain our recap our story of the cruder. She laughs. I then ask her if she would know. I tell her its a french word. Automatically, she says...share-bear #1 : Hi Guys. What's up?
share-bear #1: Oh, you mean cruller.
LOL! Moral of the story: This mystery favorite doughnut of mine is called a "french cruller" NOT frenchie cruder and certainly NOT quiche!share-bare: Damnit, I was close! See!!

- One important slang word used thanks to Oprah herself has been misused by ALOT of people including me. The slang term 'va-jay-jay' (which means vagina) does not necessarily refer to a woman's genitals. As a matter of fact, according to Dr. Laura Berman the correct term that should be used is vulva. The word vagina is not really visible to the human eye because it's an internal canal. Vulva refers to the entire external region. Now that we learned the proper term, I ask that going forward to start using the correct term. (i.e. Men have penises and women have vulvas) I suppose we might as well create an urban dictionary slang term for it, don't you think? How about vu-vee-vee? If you are totally confused, I suggest you take a look at the female anatomy - just google it or something.
- 1 in 5 couples are in sexless marriages. WTF?! I best not fall into that stastistic when I get hitched!
- Frequent sexual activity makes you look 7-12 years younger. Another known fact about having it a lot is that is reduces your chance of heart disease. It also relieves stress & insomnia, strengthens your immune system, and acts as a natural pain reliever (<----I already knew that part). Rock on.
- There are actually women in this world that lose interest in sex. Insane, right? This condition is called perimenopausal. Basically, its a drop of estrogen and testerone level in a female's body. It can affect women in their late 30s and 40s. So men, if you are in a relationship where she does not respond to sex get her help. This condition is serious but curable. Men - lets say this together: Libido is highly recommended for a successful relationship. If a women is suffering from chronic stress, that means their libido will drop so remember - again...libido is highly recommended for a successful relationship. So, don't stress her out or you'll be the one that's out of luck!
- There are 3 types of female orgasms (Guys, you jealous?):
- Clitoral: The most common and easiest to achieve
- Vaginal: More intense achieved through stimulation to the G-spot
- Blended: Combination of clitoral and vaginal. Most pleasurable. Per Dr. Berman, it is a "Holy Grail"
- As women age or have babies, their pelvic floor muscles which contract during sexual intercourse get lose. To strengthen these muscles, women should practice core muscle and kegel exercises.

Emergency Meeting Renee, MJ, and Ryree meet in Sunnyvale to discuss share-bare’s birthday. The three noticed that she has been down in the dumps. From individual conversations with share-bare, they came to the conclusion that she is depressed. Not only is she turning the big 3-0, but most of her friends and family would not be able to make the trip to Las Vegas. Renee claims that she went home early from work because she was upset that a few people backed out.
The Decision The three thoughtful ladies decided to cancel the Las Vegas trip all together. They concluded that share-bare most cared about having her loved ones around her to help her celebrate this great milestone in her life. share-bare also feels as though no one cares enough to plan for her, so they decided to craft a new birthday plan, one that would surely impress the birthday girl.
The New Plan With the help of a few other people, the following would be the new plan: Friday, December 5, 2008 Dinner would be held at California Grill in the San Mateo Marriott. GJ would be able to be the chef for the night, serving 30 of share-bare’s closest friends and family. After dinner, they would go to Milk in San Francisco. Roland was already hosting a party that night, so Mary Anne would work on reserving a table/bottle service. More of share-bare’s friends were invited for the evening event. Saturday, December 6, 2008 To continue on with the celebration, they planned to do a day outing with the kids. Bowling. One of share-bare’s favorite pastimes. In the afternoon/evening, a girl’s spa day was planned at Watercourse Way in Palo Alto. This would include her sisters, cousins, and childhood friends. Rho* offered to pay for a suite that night as well. November 20- December 1, 2008 Evites, emails, and conversations galore! They had to inform the family and friends of the new plan. Appointments were booked, hotels were canceled, and new reservations were made. One thing in the back of everyone’s mind was, “Would share-bare be disappointed?” There was no use worrying about that because everything was set. To make sure she didn’t get too disappointed, they all agreed not to initiate conversations about Las Vegas, just to lessen the blow. Amazingly enough, the secret surprise remained a secret! Family members and friends were going along with the story. December 2, 2008 This was the big day. share-bare’s official birthday! This was also the day of complete chaos. share-bare conversed with her good friend Joh on G-Chat. Poor Joh, who lives in Las Vegas, had to endure the torture of share-bare talking about specific plans during her visit. share-bare also conversed with both of her sisters on G-Chat expressing her utter most excitement about the ‘upcoming trip.’ As it turns out, share-bare has been doing her own planning on the side, inviting random friends from New Jersey and the Bay Area to meet up with her while she is there. share-bare: do u know where we're having dinner? for sat? Joh said we'll be going to tao on saturday and the new spot lavo on sunday share-bare: omg - hella ppl are going to vegas. u better look cute for the boys me: like who? share-bare: jersey guys....Twink's cousin in-law is bringing some friends and Timotei! LOL and then there's Joh's friends that are YOUR age and other ppl from the bay. ur gonna have so much fun. joh and i always have a good time w/random ppl! In a panic, Renee, MJ, and Ryree spoke via conference call to discuss the new revelations. They came to the conclusion that they jumped into the new plan too quickly, that share-bare was just being emo one day. So what must they do about the current plans? Everyone was already invited. Reservations and appointments were made. The Las Vegas hotel was cancelled. No one, except for Ryree and share-bare, had the following Monday off.
The New, New Plan They would continue on with the dinner. Most of her friends and family already RSVP’d and share-bare would, without doubt, be surprised. As for Milk in the evening, the bottle service had to be canceled but they would still be attending because her other friends already RSVP’d and would be there. As for the spa day, that had to be canceled altogether. It was decided; they had to find someway to make this trip to Las Vegas happen. Unfortunately, they would not be able to bring Eli, Janelle, and Tates. After searching online for most of the morning, MJ and Ryree found flights to Las Vegas for $49 each way. It was too late in the game to for anyone else to go, so it would just have to be share-bare, Renee, MJ, Nate, and Ryree. They were all to fly out Saturday. Because MJ and Renee did not have Monday off from work, they would fly back on Sunday, which gave them one night in Las Vegas to celebrate share-bare’s Birthday. Ryree and share-bare would fly out Monday morning. Because the hotel was canceled, it was impossible to find something for a reasonable price. They arranged to stay at their stepmother’s apartment on Saturday night and then at Joh’s place Sunday night.
Conclusion All in all, one lesson has been learned from this experience. Do not try to surprise share-bare. She is so unpredictable; there is no telling what she is going to conjure up next. *Note to share-bare: Hope you enjoy your BIG Dirty Thirty celebration. To make things less complicated, we DID NOT tell the rest of the family that we are going to Vegas again. They would just not understand the story. PLEASE act as if we are not going, especially in front of Tito Steve. He was a bit disappointed that it was canceled. (Pictures from the Surprise Birthday Dinner...)

Why does my coffee have foam bubbles on the top? Did I not wash my mug thoroughly? Should I empty and waste a cupful of coffee and refill my mug? HmmNah - I'm just going to take the chance because Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I should be thankful for what I have. Some people in this world have it to deal far worse than sipping a cup of soap infused coffee.

Good afternoon - The chefs of Shareej would like to cordially invite you to our grand opening tonight. We will start off your 3-course meal with ham & cheese no-wich rolls as an appetizer. Main course will be Meatloaf muffins with brocolli. For dessert, our sous chef will be creating his specialty, Burping Cow which consists of grape soda, low-fat vanilla ice cream topped with pillowy marshmallows. Please RSVP for this event if you wish to attend.- yeah...I'm pretty bored right now
- 2 dreams I was pregnant with a due date of 9/15 (Now that is freaky!) - WTF?!
- 1 dream, my friend Rich moved from New Jersey to be with me. We ended up having drama because he didn't pay attention to me - WTF?!
- 2 dreams were in this beautiful house (apparently was mine during the 2nd episode). I was locked out of it in the 1st episode due to a house party. During the 2nd episode, I was tripping out off the chandelier in the dining room and the back entrance to the house. The chandelier was huge but had poor lighting! The back entrance had two doors ways with an mini L-shaped hallway in between making it too compact - WTF?!
- Another dream, I was hanging out with body boarder dude from Kona - WTF?!
- Here's another good one - I gave birth to another child. It was a girl and I did not recognize the baby daddy - WTF?!
Anyway, it's really been driving me kookoo nutso! What do I do before I lay myself to bed, I end up talking to myself. REALLY! As if I'm pleading desperately for a resolution! I say, "This has got to stop like seriously, I'm so tired..." or "No more dreams, please!" or I'll say to myself repeatedly "I'm not going to dream, I'm not going to dream, I'm not going to dream". I'm going crazy, right? Yeah, I thought so.
So, I'm chatting with Joh this morning about our non-stop episode of dreams. I said that we're soul sisters. What does she respond with?
"I think it means we're being socially deprived. LMAO"
Thanks Joh! THANKS!

How the hell do you decaffeinate a coffee bean?!Have you ever thought of that? Don't all coffee beans contain some sort of caffeine? I don't get it. Do the coffee bean factories tear up the beans and remove the caffeine from the beans individually? Do they reconstruct the bean afterwards to make it seem like it was untouched? OR are there seeds that are specifically 'defects' and get planted elsewhere such as ummm the reject coffee bean field? What's the deal?
