Pants On Fire

Liar Liar Pants on Fire!

– Every Child Since Forever

——————————————— ~ ———————————————

Husband is on my list.  You know the list, the one that makes me look at you all squinty eyed.  The list containing the crazy lady at Wegmans who had to discuss with the cashier the pro’s and con’s of each and EVERY item she was purchasing and then discuss the proper packing of her twelve thousand reusable grocery bags and the idiot driver who decided to use the breakdown lane to pass me on Route 1.

You husband, who I just discovered was STEALING from me.  Stealing from your poor, poor, berry deprived wife.  Stealing my berries from my Kashi cereal.  My favorite Kashi Strawberry Fields cereal.  You, sir, are lucky I like the cereal just the way I thought it was, perfect corn flakes with just the right amount of sweetness.  I have to admit that I do feel a little better knowing that my cereal could theoretically look like the box and much better when I know that Kashi wasn’t trying to scam me out of a few freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries.

I still love my cereal and of course I still love you even if you are a liar-liar-pants-on-fire-stealer of berries and of my heart.


2+1+3+1 = madness

“We are all worms.  But I believe that I am a glow-worm.”

-Sir Winston Churchill


Hello Gorgeous!  I swear I SWEAR I am back back.  And that’ll be the last time I’ll be gone for an extended period of time.  (Hopefully)

So let’s see.  I’ve been in school and it’s nuts but great.  I’ve been annoying Husband talking about everything I’m learning again.  He’s a good sport though and placates me most of the time….

But on to the big news!  We added a new family member to our house! Meet Winston!too damn cute

He is just awesome.  And we love him.  He was born 2 Mar 2010 and that makes him 15 weeks old.  He is another Weimaraner just like Amelia.

For those of you just joining us… let me refresh you on our furry family.

Our first-born is Amelia.  She is 6 years old.  She is Husband’s second best friend and a totally spoiled rotten princess.

princess... spoiled rottenThen there are the cats….all three of them.


nom nom nomLouis (King Louie)

well hello there....and Kitty


So anyways… We’ve been having fun over at Chez Amok.  Puppy life doesn’t always lend itself real well to studying.  Which is why I’d say I’ve been less than participatory in life in general lately and why this post isn’t as eloquent as usual.  But Amelia and Winston have been getting along like they’ve always been together which helps with any growing pains that could come up.

always togetherIt’s actually kinda funny… we went to PetSmart the other day to buy animal food (which we always seems to be almost out of) and I had Winston over in the collar aisle and Husband had Amelia looking at food….Winston who apparently can’t function without Amelia started baby barking looking for Amelia.  And from all the way across the store I hear one Amelia bark (which was awesome since Amelia hardly ever barks!) as almost to say “I’m here don’t worry” and the Winston stopped.  Craziness huh?

Onto school.Too much homework.  Too little time.  Too much memorization and not enough space.  Husband laughs that I’m even more scatterbrained than usual and I tell him that he can laugh all the way to the bank eventually because despite the fact that I’ll be the oldest med student ever, all the nonsense will be worth it to finally be Dr. Amok.

Right now is pharmacology.  Loving the pharmacology.  Not loving the grueling study schedule but I am always amazed how just a few chemicals can alter your life!  Those who’ve done fertility drugs can attest to that.  Despite the fact it didn’t work for us I remember being awed at how Clomid made me feel like a 13 year old girl with the crazy hormones and acne etc.  Amazing.  Truly.

Anyways…. I really have to go back to studying.

Anxiolytics, Barbiturates, and Analgesics.  Oh My!!

So tell me about your animals…. I’m always curious to see how other people feel about their animals.  Or are we the only weird ones with dogs who take the place of children.

“There is no one on the planet to compare with moi.”

-Miss Piggy


When you start a blog you the biggest reason is because its the best way to talk about yourself in the great medium that could potentially reach MILLIONS.  So whats better than me talking about myself?  Someone else on their blog talking about me.

My best friend, Liz, has her own blog called The Wit Factory.

Liz is my best friend from high school and well…its like we’ve been best friends forever…

So read this fabulous post about moi, but stay to read her other posts.

Because she is beyond hilarious and my best friend.

Oh and because I said so….

Amok! Amok! Amok!

“As is the way with almost everything concerning in my life…jaw-dropping whimsy run amok.”

– Joseph Brooks


You know I’ve more than once been asked where I got the idea for my blog title.  Because quite frankly “Run Amok Amok” is pretty random.  The correct phrasing is normally used as how something normal has become out of control, run amok.  And while that is also an appropriate interpretation of my name, because seriously what in my life isn’t out of control most days?   But that is not where my obsession with the actual phrase Run Amok Amok came from.

The phrase originates from one of my all-time favorite movies.  A movie that apparently only 18 people saw because I have only found one person who actually “got” my reference.  This movie was made in 1993 and starred three awesome and extremely talented actresses, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.  This movie is now relegated to the random family cable channels and only occasionally seen just around Halloween…. which is a shame because I really think its comedy genius.

So lady’s and gentlemen, without further ado, my inspiration:

Hocus Pocus, is totally hilarious.  And that part right at the end is Sarah Jessica Parker in my 2nd favorite role of hers (obviously the first being Carrie Bradshaw).  She perfectly plays a ditzy, brazen hussy, tart of a witch.  And the best line ever is her jumping up and down sing-songing “Run Amok, Amok, Amok, Amok …..”

I recommend you find and rent this movie.  Watch from beginning to end and try not to tell me its a great movie.  Total fluff but who cares… Fluff makes the world go ’round.

PS – You can actually watch the whole movie online thanks to the diligent illegal uploading of a wonderful youtube world.  The movie is cut up into 11 separate parts… but still well worth the watch!

A Little Levity

“My method is to take the utmost trouble to find the right thing to say, and then to say it with the utmost levity.”

– George Bernard Shaw


I felt a little levity was needed among my readers.  So I wanted to share with you one of my favorites from my funny collection.  In my life I find organization to be my comfort.  So I tend to list, group and categorize everything (as if you haven’t already noticed).  Some people have eating disorders, I am type-A+.  For when I can’t control anything else in my life, I can control my DVD library being alphabetized.  thankyouverymuch
