We had a total of about 12 trick or treaters, I still have half a bucket of candy left...yahooo.. though J has confiscated it, so it may be all gone. I just may have to go hit the 1/2 price bins after all. Stock up for later. Day after Easter, day after Halloween, and the day after Christmas are awesome days, cuz that's when all the candy is cheap. Not that my fat ass needs any more candy, but that's beside the point. I guess 12 isn't that bad of a turnout, considering that lots of people don't take their kids out anymore, and our street is not really well lit. Plus most of the houses had their lights off.. buncha party poopers. People are no dang fun. When I was growing up, everyone dressed up and everyone in the neighborhood took their kids out. We'd have half a pillow case full of junk and be eating candy for quite a while past Halloween. I was usually a ghost or a gypsy, one year I was Raggedy Ann, and one year I was a rabbit. One year I was a christmas present, and my sister was a TV dinner. My brothers would be cowboys, ghosts, wizards, bums, cross dressers, pirates or football players, and we'd all go out and walk until we got too tired to go anymore, and then we'd go home and pig out. Mom would check our bags first, and throw out the unwrapped stuff, popcorn balls, and apples, and she'd take her cut. Then we'd trade off with each other the stuff we didn't like, throw out the cheesy crap noone wanted, and after that we'd eat til we were sick. Big fun! Face it, Halloween is just a pale shadow of what it once was for most people. Thank you to all those sickos and weirdos out there who made it unsafe and too scary for people to take their kids out trick or treating.
I'm watching a show on HGTV about haunted houses, and there's a house in there from Springfield, Mass, which is around where I grew up, and also one in Jacksonville, where I live now. Pretty cool! We had a ghost in our house when I was growing up, too. I wrote a post about it a while back, its somewhere in the archives if ya wanna go back and read it. The house we're in now has no ghost, cuz its not really a house, its just a POS mobile home pfffffft Would be neat to have a ghost to write about LOL

Not Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go

Okay, so I'm staying home tonight. No parties, no drinking or dancing... sigh. I could dress up and sit in front of the computer!! That sounds like big fun wheeeeeeeee.. Oh well, maybe next year. So what's everyone else up to tonight? Anyone going out to any big Halloween bashes. If ya do, take pics and send em to me, or at least put em on your blog so I can live vicariously through you. Yeah..I'm pathetic, I know ::: hangin head in shame:::: Guess I'll go do some work, since I can't party. Have fun and be safe all!

Got the goods!

I got the goodies in the bucket and ready by the door. No kids so far, but I'm ready for em. Here's some pics of what I got

Don't they look yummy!!

There's still time for me to hide....hmmm

All set for the kiddies

It's almost 3:00, the neighborhood kids will be getting off the bus soon. They'll rush home and scarf down their dinner, at least my mom always made us eat dinner first. They'll get into their costumes and, as soon as it's dark, out they'll come. Ghosts and witches and Harry Potter.. knocking on my door... trying to get my candy. It's mine, mine, mine I tell you!! I only pretended to buy it for Halloween, so I could load up on chocolate and Smarties and not be thought a hog. Now they're gonna expect me to actually hand it out. Maybe I'll just turn out the lights and pretend not to be home. I'll hide the car around the corner, and turn off the T.V. Yeah, thats it! hmm.. but then it will be dark and I'll have nothing to watch. I don't like the dark. I sleep with the lights on. Dammit! I guess I'd be better off giving it to them...If I have to. It's not that bad I suppose, cuz tomorrow all the goodies will be 1/2 off, and I'll be right there waiting. muwahahaha ::: doing the 1/2 price chocolate dance:::::

Horror movie survival tips from Buzz

In the spirit of Halloween, Buzz has a few Halloween funnies, and some Halloween horror movie survival tips you might wanna check out, just in case you ever find yourself in one. Your survival could depend on it.
  • Tips
  • Happy Halloween

    Made it through Cabbage Night, (Hell night, Mischief night, whichever ya call it) with no eggs on my house or toilet paper on the car. So, that's good news. It's officially Halloween now.. where's my candy?? I was thinking I should go out tonight, find a party to go to or something. I never get to go out for Halloween anymore. But then I'd have to find some kind of costume. I dunno, I'll see what happens I guess. I'll probably just stay home, hoard.. errr .. I mean hand out candy.. and watch the little street critters walk around in their costumes and beg for handouts.

    Thursday, October 30, 2003

    The school bus just pulled up outside to drop off the kids across the street. The dogs started barking, so I opened the curtain and looked out, to see what they were barking at. It's barely past 3:30, and it's almost dark. I figure, another 20 minutes, half hour max, it'll be officially dark. This just aint right! Not only that, there's someone shooting fireworks off on the street..making the dogs go mental. Jazmine is hiding under my chair, and Belle is howling at the window. Why the hell would someone be lighting fireworks off at 3:30 in the afternoon.. today aint a holiday. It is Hell Night, or Mischief night or whatever ya wanna call it, so maybe that's why. I just wish they'd stop.

    The Rant that Blogger ate..

    Last night I tried to do this big ol' post about J and how po'd I was at him because he was being all pissy and bitchy, and Blogger ate it. It was a pretty big rant too.. I was really pissed. I hate when that happens! Anyway, I'm better now. His problem is that he's working all day now and going to school at night, and he's tired and doesn't have a lot of time to relax. He has homework to do and stuff, too. Now, he is of the misguided opinion that I should all of a sudden be doing his laundry, making sure he has tea to drink, or cold Cokes in the fridge, and I have the obligation to not only cook for him..pfffffffft.. but that it should be done by the time he gets home from school at night, so he can eat as soon as he gets home. Apparently, he gets hungry during the day. I don't see this as my problem. When I took his behind back, the understanding was that I don't "have to" do anything. My general life philosophy is I don't have to do anything but live and die, the rest is totally optional. I'm not responsible to feed him, unless I happen to be cooking anyway, and I don't wanna hear him whine. He has completely forgotten these little facts.. conveniently. I reminded him last night.. loudly. I'm not mean or a bitch, I realize he's hungry, and he's tired, and busy, but we have issues, which are his fault, and I can't bring myself to feel sorry for him. Yes, I know he's my boyfriend, and we're together, and I do love him, and all that crap, and the cooking and general housewifey stuff is, theoretically, s'posed to me my responsibility,! Anyway.. whatever.. he'll get over it. I did cook for him BTW, I didn't let him starve, but I just didn't do it within his preferred time frame. Did I mention also that I work my actual job.. and that means I stop working when he gets home at 10:30 to go in and cook for him. This fact doesn't register with him either. grrrrr. The thing that mostly irritates me about the whole thing, is that he acts as if he were the only person ever in the world to have to work and go to school simultaneosly. Its hard..apparently. Who knew!? I told him that I went to school all day and worked 5 hours a night, and still had to cook, clean, and do all that other stuff for myself, and I survived. I also told him he should be happy he's not a woman with kids trying to do it, and that he has me to do some stuff for him, which is more than I had. So, tonight I'm gonna try to cook something for him.. a little earlier than usual.. just to be nice. But, if he thinks I'm gonna make a habit out of it, he's delusional.

    Oh yeah! I forgot...

    I got my camera today, finally! I haven't had much time to play with it, because I've been working and doing the other thing that rainy days make me want to do.. clean.. but I did manage to take some pictures here and there. I haven't really taken any that are worth sharing yet, cuz the dogs aren't cooperating. They've gone camera shy on me, and run when they see me with it. Dang party poopers! But I'll get them, and eventually take something worth putting up. I knew it was gonna be here today, because I checked the UPS tracking number, and when it came I was sleeping, as I am a lot mid afternoon, because I work usually all night. As soon as the dogs started barking, I woke up. Before my eyes were even fully open, I remembered they were coming, and just half jumped outta bed, grabbed my clothes and started yelling " I'm coming! Hold on!" I got there in time to catch her, thank God, cuz I woulda had to wait until tomorrow, and I've been waiting for the dang thing long enough. It's not as nice as my Olympus, but it has one advantage over the Olympus, it actually works..and it was a lot cheaper than paying to fix the Olympus. So, now I have a new toy to play, and I love new toys!

    Raindrops and chocolate chips

    It's been raining all day, and we've had severe thunder storm warnings, but so far I haven't heard any thunder. All I hear is the rain.. and more rain. It's nice though, a rainy day every once in a while is good. Good days to curl up on the couch under a blanket with a book, or pop in a bunch of movies and get some popcorn going. Maybe sit, watch the movie, and crochet or something. I rarely do just one thing at a time, I have to do something with my hands. When I was younger and still lived at home, on rainy fall days I'd get the urge bake. Fall makes me want to bake anyway, I guess because of the cooler weather, and because of the holidays, but rainy days are great days to make some goodies. I don't like to cook, but I do like to bake. I'd bake double batches of chocolate chip cookies, or sometimes peanut butter or oatmeal raisin, depending on what we had in the house. I could do it then, because I had 5 siblings, parents, and a steady stream of visitors who would eat everything, sometimes as fast as we could bake them. Our house was the neighborhood hangout for our friends, and we always had plenty of people around, cuz we had a big house, a yard with a pool, and the neighborhood cool mom. I think she mostly just let us all hang there, because that way she knew what we were all up to. She still didn't know most of what we were up to. I know this, because we're all still breathing. :::hehehe::: Here, it's just me and J, and he doesn't eat that many sweets. He's more a chip kinda guy. That means I'd be forced to eat it all myself, and I don't need to do that. I could bake stuff and give it away, but I know better than that. It wouldn't make it past the front door. LOL

    Devil Costume
    You should be a Devil!

    What Should Your Halloween Costume Be?
    brought to you by Quizilla

    My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog

    Because I do have somewhat of a normal ego, and my need for feedback and gratification is as big as anyone's, I've just begun listing my blog with different blog databases, looking for rings to join, etc, trying to maybe get some more people to come visit me here in my little corner of the blogosphere. I want people to like me. I want to be accepted, and be on lots of people's "daily read" lists, because..well..I'm just the sort of girly who occasionally craves validation and attention. I've looked at the "popular kids" to see what it is about them that draws a crowd, and I've enjoyed vising them, and I can see why other people do too. Then I read my stuff, to see how I stack up, and aside from the fact that I write about stuff that may be a little strange, like advocating public nudity, most of what I write seems ok. Some things may seem a little odd, but that's because ..well.. I'm a little odd. I try to be interesting and add a bit of humor, and I try to write about stuff that other people might enjoy reading, but still my hit counter creeps up little by little, slowly, and I'm not getting the linky love I think I deserve. Then I started thinking that maybe I needed better content. Maybe I should refine my style, and research stuff, and try to find content that will be interesting to a broader audience. Maybe I should find more provocative stuff to write about, go off on tangents and rants about current events or politics, abortion, religious freedom, or human rights. Or sex!! I could write about sex...errr.. maybe not. I can see it now, my hits would grow by leaps and bounds, I'd be popular and loved by those far and wide for my sparkling wit and brilliance. The thing is, when I really thought about it, that just sounded like a lot of work for something that is s'posed to be a fun and entertaining way for me to spend my time. I'd have to research stuff, I'd have to put my opinions out there and stand by, and even defend, my ideas from the trolls who would come and want to leave their opinions on my opionions. I'd have to work at it, and I don't wanna have to work at it. I just want to throw whatever thoughts are swirling through my brain out here, to give me a place to think and get my frustrations out, and share the good stuff with whoever happens to stop by. Sigh.. I guess I'll just stop worrying about being popular, and just be me. I'll have to be content to be the geek in the back row, in pigtails and hand-me-down high waters, and be happy for anyone who does happen to come see what I've got to say. I may not be one of the "popular kids", but I'll be okay. Psssst.. if ya come sit next to me, I'll do your homework for ya.

    The post below is a long one, I don't know how to do that "behind the curtain" stuff.

    Hard to Believe It's Been Ten Years

    My sister sent me this email today, and after I got done grossing out, I realized something. Well, you should read the email first. It really doesn't have much to do with this post directly, but just for your own sake, really, g'head, I'll wait ::tap tap tap:::
  • Wash It Off
  • Grossed out? I was. Anyway, the reason this is significant to me, and the reason I'm sharing, other than the desire to warn people about this, if they weren't aware of it before, is because when I read it, I immediately thought of my exboyfriend Keith. He was an electrician and had worked in warehouses and in kitchens in restaurants, and would tell me how disgusting it was, and about the rats and other stuff that crawl all over everything in them. He had "contamination issues". He would also tell me about the studies done about the legally allowed percentage of bug parts and rat hairs that are allowed to be in the processed food me eat. He was fun!!! This man would get mad when I would kiss my nieces and nephews, because he said kids carry germs and they will make me sick, and he didn't want me getting him sick from kissing them. I thank God I never had a child with him, I can tell ya that much.

    So anyway, I thought of him and I realized that today is the 10th anniversary of the day I left him. Keith was my first "real" boyfriend. I was 22 when I met him, so of course I had been involved with guys and kinda dated before...ya know, once or twice ::hehehe:: and I had had relationships of sorts, but he was the first guy I was ever a "couple" with. I met him on November 15, 1988, and by the day after Thanksgiving he had moved in with me and my best friend, Lisa. He was a friend of a friend, and lived on the third floor above us with Dennis. Dennis let him move in, took rent money from him, and neglected to tell him he was 3 months behind on his rent and he was in the process of being evicted. Ummm...nice guy..yeah! Anyway, he moved in with us. Keith was not only my first boyfriend, he was my first other things too. He was my first lover. He was my first dysfunctional relationship (unfortunately, not the last) I have a special talent for those! He was the first guy I ever lived with. He was the first guy to break my heart, first to make me cry, first to make me feel like I needed to fix him, and the first guy I ever had to break up with when I finally realized the relationship was just too unhealthy and too damaging to me to stay. Of course, it took five years to realize that.. I guess I was a slow learner. I just thought that I loved him, and I needed to stay and try to make it work. I finally realized that I loved him, but I wasn't "in love", much later, but it was still hard to do.

    I could go into the gory details of the relationship (alcoholic, coke head, petty thief, blah, blah, blah) but that would be more of a novel than I could hope to cover in this blog, five years of emotional and sometimes verbal abuse could cover a lot of pages. I didn't realize that was what it was, at the time. I just knew that the things he did, and the things he said to me sometimes left scars, and it hurt. He did love me, in his way. He was never unfaithful, he would do almost anything for me, and was never physically abusive, or even overtly verbally abusive, it was more subtle with him. We had fun together, we made each other laugh. There just eventually came a point, towards the end of the relationship, where things had changed. We weren't a couple anymore. I realized we hadn't had sex in 4 months and it was fine with me. I didn't want him to touch me. I then started to realize something wasn't right. In the end, it took one comment to make me know that I had to go. I was working part-time and going to school all day, trying to learn transcription so I could get a better job. I was doing it for us. I was busting my ass. One morning, we were running late, and I was in his way in the bathroom while he was getting ready for work, and he got irritated and said "I don't know why you're bothering to go to school anyway, you don't want to work. You're too lazy". I sat in the car on the way to school and didn't speak to him, tears in my eyes, got out of the car without saying a word, got through the day, and the next day I moved out. He came home, and I was gone.

    It was hard. It killed me, and I cried off and on for a few days. I stopped crying when my brother told me he was telling everyone that I left him with nothing, which was a lie, and I took his money out of the bank, which I never would. Hell, I left him stuff that was MINE when we met, just because I knew he would need it more than I would. I realized then that I had done the right thing. Since I left him, he has been living with my brother John and his wife. They share a house that Keith bought, on the same street I grew up on. Whenever I go home to visit, I see him, and I think how glad I am that I did what I did. I've learned and have been through a lot in the past ten years, but good or bad, he'll always be my first.

    Watching Small Soldiers

    The movie Small Soldiers just started on TBS. I like this movie. It reminds me of when I was little, and I was sure that my toys came alive when I was asleep. They would fight and dance and play, and do all kinds of stuff they couldn't do in the day, when they had to lay still and be my toys. But my childhood delusions aren't the point. The point is that this movie is pretty cool, at least I like it, and that's all that matters, really. When I think about it, I think "How cool would that be to have toys this interactive". Then again, as the movie shows, sometimes things that seem like they are something you would really love, don't turn out the way you would hope. Be careful what you wish for, cuz you just might get it isn't a popular saying for nothing. I just wonder what kids who watch this movie think. If I was little when I first saw it, would it give me nightmares? Or would it just confirm what I had suspected all along, and make me determined to try to catch my toys acting up. Hard to say, cuz the things that most kids are scared of, like the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz, never bothered me. The Wizard scared me a little, when he was behind the curtain, but I was okay with the monkeys and the witches. Anyway, I guess I'll go finish watching the movie. I just realized the kid who plays Alex is Gregory Smith from Everwood, and the mutant Barbie doll voices are Buffy and Christina Ricci.. ya learn something new every day.
    Ok, I went and added my blog to The Truth Laid Bare New Blog Showcase.. just for ha ha's.. but then as I was trying to add the link code to my site, I got froze up and had to reboot. Lost it! I then searched the site for a way to log in or get the link somewhere again.. no luck. I finally managed to get it, after a long-ass search, and hopefully it will work right. Now I'm s'posed to vote for other people's sites, from what I gather, but I don't have time to do that right now, so I will later. We'll see what happens : O)

    Pardon my undies...

    Are clothes entirely necessary? I'm not a nudist, and I've seen me nekkid.. it's pretty scary.. and others too.. sometimes even scarier.. so I'm not saying we should all throw our clothes off and walk stark naked unabashedly through the streets. But, I just think it would be nice if a certain degree of nudity would be more socially acceptable in public. Maybe just within a certain amount of distance from your residence, it would be appropriate to walk around in your underwear. I don't want to see people wandering the aisles of the Winn Dixie in their undies or their bathrobe, but it would be nice if, say within the confines of your street, it would be perfectly fine to go to the end of your driveway dressed any way you damn well please, to maybe get your paper, or to check your mail, etc. If everyone were allowed to do it, noone would bat an eye. I spend 90% of my time in my house nekkid or near nekkid.. usually in a Tshirt and undies or a bathrobe..sometimes starkers.. I have no kids and very little company usually, and J likes me nekkid.. so I can get away with this. When i need to go get my paper outta the driveway, or go check my mail, which is across the street in neighborhood mailbox thing..grrrrrrrr...or when I need to go chase the dogs or get something from the car.. I gotta stop and put on clothes, for the 2 seconds it takes to run out and grab whatever it is, then come in and take them back off again. Why? Consideration for my neighbors? Yes, possibly. Mostly its cuz I don't want to be arrested for indecent exposure, or have the authorities carting me away to test me for competency. "Dang dizzy bitch.. keeps forgetting her clothes before she goes out! She must be insane. Early alzheimer's I betcha!" Now, If I'm on a beach, in a bathing suit, which covers less, or at least as much as, a tshirt and my undies.. Its fine.. but in my driveway in my undies, there's something wrong. I guess I got spoiled living in the house I lived in before this..well actually the one previous to that.. I was in the last house of a dead-end street with no neighbors who could see what I was doing in my yard, and I would, since my washer and dryer were in the garage, traipse happily to the garage in my undies whenever I felt like it. I would go to the driveway and get the paper, or go grab something from the car the same way. It was great. Of course, I lived on the edge of a biiiiig empty field, with railroad tracks about an acre or so distance from my house, and I found out, at one point, that someone had thrown an old couch out in the woods at the edge of the field, and there were some bums that were sleeping on it. I may not have been as alone as I thought.. but I really don't care. I didn't know they were there, so ignorance, in this case, definitely was bliss. I guess it's not so bad, I could have to endure much worse things, but if I ever get to be in charge, we'll see what happens then!

    I never

    This post was inspired by the drinking game," I Never". The object of the game is questions are asked, like "Have you ever had sex with more than one person in the same day?", and if that statement is not true about you, and you have done that, you have to drink. If you never have done that, you don't drink. So, I've decided to put up my own version, just because I'm bored. Admittedly, the game version is better, because in this version I can only put up the answers to questions that would keep me sober, because they are things that I have never done. Now, I could make another section, entitled "I, actually, have" ...AKA "Things that would make me drunk off my ass", but why give up my dirty little secrets if I don't have to. If anyone wants to ask a question, put it in the comments and see if you can get me drunk. LOL. Or, if ya like, leave your own list of 20 "I nevers",. or the link to yours, in the comments. ... So, here goes:

    I've never...

    .....Given blood or had blood drawn for any purpose medical or otherwise.
    .....Climbed a tree
    .....Been bungee jumping
    .....Tasted a kumquot
    ......Been dumped.. (well maybe once technically, but it was more of a mutual, gradual parting of the ways by lack of interest. Almost a breakup by default. We just stopped calling each other bit by bit, and then finally altogether, but I was the last to call and he never returned the last maybe it could be classified as him dumping me. I prefer to call it a mutual parting )
    .....Been to a foreign country
    .....Been to college
    .....Seen the movie Casablanca
    .....Been, or wanted to be, pregnant.
    .....Broken a bone
    .....Baited my own hook
    .....Been in a helicopter
    .....Ridden in an ambulance
    .....Been on television
    .....Cheated on a test
    .....Had sex with a coworker
    ......Left a restaurant without paying the check.
    ......Cheated on a boyfriend
    ......Been married or "officially" engaged

    Ok, that's enough meme's for today. I'm going to get some work done.

    Another Meme for your viewing pleasure

    Five Questions

    1. What's the most extreme thing you've done to either generate sympathy or get out of a debt?

    None I can think of. God, I'm boring! LOL

    2. If someone paid for your education, what do you think you owe them in return?I would think you should try to pay them back, or at least an attempt to pay them back. If the amount was so large, you couldn't afford to pay them back, or if the won't take the money, you would at least owe them the respect of doing the very best you possibly could, to make the most of the opportunity, and to show them you are appreciative. That, and undying gratitude. But, if they hold the fact they paid it over your head, constantly rubbing it in your face, reminding you, or making you feel you must kiss their ass for their generosity, it is entirely acceptable to tell them to bite your shiny white hiney.

    3. What's your fitness regimen?

    My what?? Have you seen the size of my ass?! My fitness regimen consists of waking up, crawling to the computer, checking my email, and other various webfun, and mostly remaining there, butt firmly glued to the chair, save for the occasional venture to the kitchen for drinks or to the toilet when necessary. I do every so often venture out of the house, mostly a walk across the street to retrieve my mail, and then I return right back to the aforementioned chair. Every so often I do harbor guilty thoughts of the unused exercise bike in the spare room. I then make a resolution to start using it, to get a routine going.. but then I go to sleep until the urge passes..

    4. What is your most annoying habit that you know drives others nuts but are powerless to stop?
    I would have to say singing. I sing all the time. I'm not even aware of it sometimes. It's not so much the fact that I sing, because my voice is fairly decent, but I tend to get songs stuck in my head.. or actually certain parts of songs.. and I sing that same song or part of a song over and over. That.. and I'm always right. Even when I'm wrong, I'm right, and I'll prove it to you, or die trying. LOL I get that lovely trait from my mom. Thanks, mommy!! .

    5. What was your favorite vehicle (car, motorcycle, bike, skateboard, whatever)?I dont drive, or I don't have a license anyway, so I"ve never owned one of my very own, but I used to love my exboyfriend's Mustang.

    Yo mama is a garden tool!

    Speaking of mama's I went to visit mine today. Had to bring her some cash I owed her, 150 of my hard-earned samolians gone gone gone! Oh well, I probably woulda spent it on pizza and beer anyway. It wasn't all bad, cuz I scored some new clothes. She buys stuff and then doesn't wear it, and I get it.. yippee! J borrowed some DVDs to watch, but when he got home his DVD player was screwy so now he's po'd cuz he couldnt' watch em..Poor baby. Now he'll be wanting to buy a new DVD player.. pffffft We did the grocery shopping thing today too. Didn't want to.. I HAD to. I had no food. No milk, no bread, no snacks.. no veggies.. all I had was stuff I couldn't eat unless I :::shudder::: cooked. And anyone who knows anything about me, knows that's something I avoid like the plague.

    I scored some fudge frosted brownies and some Oreos on our venture..and some Skinny Cow ice cream saucers..mmmm.. oh yeah, I bought some meat and veggies and stuff too, but who cares about that stuff. They had Buy One Get One Free Cap'N Crunch with crunch berries, so I got some of those. I have issues with The Crunch, though. I love The Crunch, but they are very abrasive and tend to rip up the roof of your mouth. I know this, and I bought them anyway.. cuz sometimes you have to suffer for your pleasures.

    After we came home and put the booty away, we decided to go get something to eat, and ended up at Sonny's ..AUCE BBQ ribs, onion rings, garlic bread, and sweet tea.. man that was some good stuff. We havent been there in ages. Dining out lately has usually ended up being Taco Hell or something quick, but I was in the mood for the BBQ today, so that's where we went.

    Our evening ended at WallyWorld, cuz J needed oil for the car, and I decided to get some Halloween candy, since I probably won't have time to go get any before Friday, and by then all the good stuff will be gone. I got miniature Snickers and 3 Musketeers, and the huge-ass bag of stuff called Kiddie Mix, its got lollys, Now and Later, Smarties, jaw breakers, SweetTarts and Dubble Bubble..2 1/2 pounds of it...hog heaven! 11.00 worth of candy! It's gotta stay here in my house for a whole week, untouched, waiting for the kiddies to come beggin. And I know it's gonna sit here next to me..calling me.. mocking me. You know you want us. It's futile to resist. Eat me! Eat me!.. but NO! I . awww screw them, let them get their own dang candy!

    Its not the Orgasmatron, but it could be useful.

    Woohooo.. and it even comes in blue!

    Slightest Touch is a hand-sized electronic stimulation product for women.

    The Orgasmatron is a device that is s'posed to help women achieve orgasm. Always a good and worthwhile cause if ya ask me! It says it doesn't bring a woman to orgasm, but it gets them ready for one. Like we're ever not ready for one.. doh! It's 200.00, but if it works, it just may be worth it. It could take some of the pressure off the man of having to worry if he can make his woman happy... for those who worry about such things. It could bring relief to women who have trouble reaching orgasm, and intensify the experience for those who already get there without too much problem. Then again, it may not be such a good idea. It could possibly make a man lazy, and lessen his willingness for too much foreplay, since the Orgasmatron will do all that for him. Hmmm.. that would be bad. We need things that encourage much foreplay, not things that make it okay to bypass it. Although, it could spur some men on to even greater feats of foreplay, when they see how much their woman enjoys her new toy, they may be sparked to compete, so she won't decide she don't need him anymore. I don't know.. good or bad?...godsend or evil foreplay killer?... I may have to buy one to fully test these theories...If I do, I'll be sure to let y'all know how it turns out.

    I wanted that.. dammit!

    I gave in to the evil Cheesesteak demon and called Dominos today for dinner. I was down to my last piece of pizza, had it on a plate, and headed off to the kitchen for a drink. I returned to the room, just in time to see a little bitty black furry thing dragging my pizza across the floor, trying to get back to his lair in the closet with it, growling and hissing at Niki as he went. She was trying to get near him and would have stolen the pizza if I hadn't come in when I did. He's not too bright, cuz he's a little bitty thing, and she's a rotty shepard mix. She could swallow him in one gulp, but pizza brings out his inner beast. Good thing Jazmine and Belle were outside, cuz they woulda stole the pizza, and just ate him for fun if he gave them any shit. They take their pizza seriously. Of course, I had to take it from him, after I stopped laughing, and smacked him, not too hard, on the ass. You have to discourage pizza thievery, nip it in the bud, or all hell will break loose. It will be anarchy! Now I'm kinda pissed cuz I have no more pizza. Dammit! hmm.. but I do have ice cream in there somewhere, I think. Ben & Jerry can erase any disappointment, no matter how big. I just wish I had my camera, cuz that was some funny shit.

    Where's the No Doze when ya need it!

    I don't know what my problem is, but I can't stay awake this morning. I was up working last night, but decided at about 3:00 a.m. I was really tired and would just lay down for a couple hours and get up early and finish working. I set my alarm for 7:30, and woke up at 7:15 with a raging need to pee.. dang it! After a quick bathroom trip, I went back to bed, and then decided to give myself a little extra time, it was still early. So I reset my alarm for 7:45. At 7:45 I tried to get up, but was so tired I reset it for 8:45. For some reason, it didn't go off at 8:45, so I woke up at 9:18 because Jazmine was whining and moaning and l opened my eyes to see her sitting next to me, looking at me with this very pitiful, "Mommy please wake up" look, and I figured she had to go out. I tried to put her off for a few minutes, because I was so comfy and didn't wanna get up, but I eventually had to give in. I went to the door and went to tie her out, but she didn't want to go out. She musta just been lonely or something..dammit.. so I let Belle and Niki out and went back to lay down for a few until they were ready to come back in. I then felt guilty for sleeping, I really needed to get to work, so I got up and started to download some work. While I waited for it to download, I snoozed in my chair .pfffffft thats very uncomfortable, makes my neck sore too. I gave up on the work and decided I really, really needed to lay down again, so I went back to bed, after letting the dogs back in. I slept til 11:15 or so. Now, I'm awake, sitting at the computer, trying to surf and do stuff, and trying to motivate myself to start doing the jobs I downloaded earlier, and as I'm sitting here reading, my eyes keep closing. WTF! What is wrong with me! I feel like I did some Nyquil or something. But I'm not giving in, I'm going to force myself to stay awake. I figured if I wrote something, maybe my brain would wake up. So far, it's not working. I think I may need to reset the alarm and try again at 2:00 or 3:00.

    Yippee RobNhood is goin down! Metro: Jury recommends life in Jarvis bombing trial 10/23/03
    The trial of Bill "RobnHood" Jarvis is one a lot of locals here in Jacksonville have been following. He frequented, as did his exwife, the chat room on AOL Jacksonvilleover30, one that I have been a part of for the past 8 years. I know him, and met him in person many times. He was at my 30th bday party, swimming in my sister's pool. He was odd, everyone said he was odd, but I never in a million years thought he was capable of this. You never do think someone you know could be capable of anything remotely like what he did. It devastated many people in the "Jax room" who knew and loved Lil, and I know that several of the "roomies" have gone to witness the trial, and some may have even been called to testify against him. Not only did he kill her, but he hurt her parents, and his daughter was in the house. They all could have been killed right along with Lil. All of this over money, and some custody problems with his daughter. Sick fuck.. I'm not usually one for an eye for an eye, and I try to forgive people, but I think I could support the death penalty on this one.

    Don't stop me now!

    I am so on top of it today! Not only did I clean my bathroom, I cleaned my kitchen, took out the trash, dusted, vacuumed and steam vac'd my living room, and put the three stacks of books that have been piled in the corner of my living room for a month away. I then took the dogs for a walk.. yes, an actual walk. I usually just tie them to the fence in the yard. I also did some laundry, and cleaned the kitty box. On top of all this, I managed to work off and on, and had a two hour conversation with my mom. Now that's productive!! At least it is for me.. cuz usually I can barely manage to crawl from the bed to the computer and plant myself in my chair. A couple times a day, I manage to drag myself all the way into the kitchen for a drink or to grab a snack or something like that, but mostly it's the sitting and watching T.V. or listening to music all day.

    I can't believe I was on the phone for two hours with mom. We didnt talk about much except dad and his webcam, and just random crap. My brother Brian, who is still in Massachusetts, is coming here in March for his 40th birthday, and John and Sue (my oldest bro and his wife) will come down with him, but Bri's wife aint coming cuz apparently they're not doing too well. Sad, and I hope they don't get divorced or anything, but then if they do he may move down here, and that would be great. They won't come down together, because she hates Florida. That would mean only John and Sue would still be in Mass. Oh well, we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

    I'm in shock!


    I knew Blondie was going, Bob never had a chance to bond with her really.. but OMG, he booted LEEANN.. that was a shocker. Now who am I gonna not like!

    I hate myself for loving you..

    Bachelor Bob getting down to the wire. I know I shouldnt like this show, and I feel guilty about it. It's so sexist and unliberated when ya get right down to it. These women set themselves up to compete for one man, and he gets to judge them and pick and choose which one he wants. All the while, he's dating and romancing each one of them, kissing them and sweet-talking them. What self-respecting woman would go for that? Yeah, they do have the Bachelorette and all that too, so women get their chance, but because it's a man doing the choosing, and making all of these smart, pretty, seemingly otherwise sane and secure women compete for him, it should rub me the wrong way. It just doesn't though. I like it! All the wondering of who will he choose, and there's always the one girl ya love to hate, and the other girls love to hate. Then the dream dates they all get to go on.. with Bob, no less, who like the Bachelors before him is sweet and sexy and seems like the perfect guy. We all know guys like him don't really exist!! At least not in my neighborhood LOL

    Smallville, as promised was a good one. Clark taking off his clothes and trying to get jiggy with Lana, even in a dream.. yummy. Although...I have to wonder what Clark Kent's first time was like.. Superman.. the man of steel, faster than a speeding bullet, as strong as he is.. if he gets too excited and can't control himself.. well. I can only imagine what could happen! I'd be willing to be a guinea pig for him though ::hehehe:::

    Kicking back with the Man-o-Steel

    It's Wednesday night and coming up on 8:00.. bring on the SMALLVILLE! Previews look great on this one. I can't wait.

    Awww phooeey

    Found out today that my TC (transcription coordinator) at work isn't going to be my TC anymore, she's going into QA instead. This sucks, because now I have a new TC, April, and I don't know if she'll be as good about getting my bonuses in on time as Myra was. Plus, Myra lets me slide on stuff for my bonuses, like I'm only s'posed to get the unscheduled hour bonus money if I work my actual scheduled hours too, which I rarely ever do. I just kinda work here and there, but my totals are usually above the minimum 12,000 line requirement for the pay period so Myra will approve my bonuses. I don't know if April is one of those by the book, gotta do it right types, or if she'll approve them. Plus, some TCs will get your 50,000 line bonuses in as soon as you send them and you'll get them on your next check, Myra does this, and some of them will take two weeks to get them in, they have two weeks from the time you submit them to get them done, and they don't make them a priority, so it holds up your bonuses an extra pay period arrrrgh I guess I'll just have to wait and find out what happens. All I know is this pay period I got 300.00 in bonuses from last pay period due me, because I put them in too late to get them on this check, plus 220.00 in bonuses I've already earned this pay period, which will be added to next weekends bonuses, probably another 200.00, and if all goes well I should have a 50,000 line bonus ready to go in, too. Thats a possible 1100.00 in bonuses that if she won't approve them because I didnt do specific hours I'll be screwed out of. I guess I'd better make sure I work my schedule the rest of this pay period to make sure she has no reason not to approve them.. dang it! I hate when that happens.

    Crow dreams

    I dont know how much I believe in dream interpretations and such, but I have had this really weird thing in two dreams now. A couple days ago, I fell asleep and had a dream that I dont remember what happened, except that at some point in the dream a crow came in to my bedroom. It kinda came at me, and I swatted it and it fell over and landed on my end table in my bedroom, and it was on its back with its head tipped kinda sideways to the left, feet in the air, and it just stayed there. Its eyes were open, and I wasnt sure if it was dead, but I think it was just lying there. I thought about trying to put it outside, but then I didn't. I let it sit there. I felt guilty cuz it might still have been alive, but I was afraid it would freak out and bite me or something if it was still alive. I ended up going about my business and whatever else happened, by the end of the dream the crow was still there. Today I had a nap and in the dream the same crow was there. Still on the nightstand, just lying there with its head tilted. I don't know why, if I thought it was dead, after a few days I let it just lie there, but I did. The dogs didn't mess with it, the cats didn't mess with it and it didn't move. Then someone, a guy that I can't remember who it was, but I don't think it was J, came in asked about the crow. I told what happened to it, and he asked if it was dead. He gave it a dish with some corn in it, and it started eating the corn. So now that I knew it wasn't dead, I figured I should put it outside or something. I thought maybe it was dazed and before it snapped out of it I should put it outside. The weird thing, and I was thinking this in my dream too, was that, first of all it ended up still being alive, even though it had been just lying there on its back with no food or water, and without moving for a few days, and then it wasn't flapping around the house, afraid of the animals, or anything. Normally, a bird stuck in a house would be smashing into walls and windows trying to get out. It was perfectly happy in my house just hanging out.

    I went to some dream sites and they say crows can indicate big impending changes, or bad things coming. One of them even said a crow that attacks could mean cancer, and I do worry about that, as it runs in the family, but I haven't been thinking about it or anything that I'm aware of. So I don't know what the deal is with this crow. I've never dreamt of crows, or birds before, and to have the same crow in two dreams on different days is very strange. Especially for me to remember it so clearly, because most times I don't remember about 90% of my dreams once I fully wake up. I know I had a dream, and I know that something weird or cool or freaky happened, but just in general, I can't usually remember much specifics. Oh well, maybe I just dreamed about him twice cuz I felt guilty the first time leaving a possibly dead or dying animal lying there on my end table.

    I smell pretty

    I went to last week and had some personalized scents made, and I ordered the sample pack so I could see how they smell. One of them I really, really like, its kinda light and airy and slightly flowery.. very pretty. Wish we had smell-o-vision so you all could smell me.

    Adventures in dog catching

    Jazmine and Niki managed to get loose this morning and were running up and down the street. They went across the street and were barking at the neighbors dog through the fence. Niki was throwing herself against the fence, and it was rocking. I was waiting for the thing to collapse and their dogs to go running loose. That's all I would have needed. Its bad enough that she is constantly going over to their yard to potty. We have the same landlord, so I'm waiting for a call saying to keep her off their lawn, but I have no choice but to let her go out and go free, she refuses to go when she's on a leash.
    Jazmine had broken her leash again, that's why she was free, I dont know how the heck she does it, she only weighs 35 pounds, but she manages somehow. So, here I was standing in my driveway in my shorts and ratty T-shirt, with a very cute cable guy across the street laughing at my attempts to make the dogs come home. That was special. I really didn't want to have to go chase em. I tried bribing them by asking if they wanted a cookie, this does sometimes work, but they had no interest in that. They were hell-bent on getting those dogs behind the fence.
    I had prickers, these nasty little burr things we have in our lawn, poking my feet, getting stuck to my socks, and that wasn't too much fun, so I had to come in and put some long pants and shoes on, and I grabbed a couple hot dogs and went over to get the two idiots. The bribe worked and I managed to get Jazmine to come to me, and I grabbed her by the hanging remainder of the leash, she took the hot dog... aha!! I had her.. and as I tried to lead her across the street, she slipped her head outta her collar stuck her tongue out at me.. I swear she did..really, and she ran ahead of me, luckily, toward the house. I let her in and went after Niki. She was still trying to get the dogs, and not paying any attention to me at all. Cable guy was still laughing at me, of course. Nice ass though, so I let him slide. Finally, when she realizes I have a hot dog, Niki comes to me and I bribed her to follow me home and managed to get her in the house. I opened the door to let her in, and turned to the street in time to see cute cable guy getting into his truck. He waved and I waved back before I went in the house and beat the heck outta the dogs. Ok that was a lie, but I coulda done it ..I mean it!

    Miscellaneous stuff

    I spent most of yesterday making webpages, and goofing off between working. I made a Halloween page, but its not up yet, I have to do a few things to it first. It won't be anything spectacular, its basically just an excuse to use all the Halloween graphics I have taking up space on my hard drive, but hopefully it will be cute when its done. I wish I had the motivation to learn all the fancy stuff css and php and all that, but I just can't seem to concentrate on it, or can't find the time to really sit and learn it. I will though eventually. I want to be able to make really kewl stuff happen on my site. Most days, I can barely get my head around html lol
    Elmo, now that he has discovered how to make it to the litter box on his own, has decided that its a playground, and I have to go in there five times a day and vacuum up kitty litter off the floor..pffffffft He's entirely too spunky today. Anyone got a kitty Valium? I'm bought some kitty treats and I'm trying to teach him how to sit up and beg.

    Boo hoo

    I don't know why I watch this show, Emergency Vets, it kills me. People having sick and hurt pets, and I just sit here and cry. Especially when they have the dogs that have to be put to sleep. Not only do I cry for the people who lost their pet, but I look at Jazmine, well all my babies actually, but Jazmine is special, she was the first, and I know that someday down the line she will end up being gone. I just pray its in her old age, and she goes in her sleep peacefully...maybe in about 50 years or so. If she got hit by a car or got hurt somehow and had to be put down, or if I have to make the decision to put her to sleep at some point, just the thought tears my heart out. Yet, I know, realistically, its inevitable.

    I soooo want one of these

  • Sony DVD Handycam

  • I'm in love with this. I don't own a camcorder, though I've thought about buying one for a long time. Now I'm glad I didnt buy one, cuz this is da bomb. To be able to take home movies directly onto a disk and pop em in the DVD player both on the TV or the computer is so much simpler. I'm gonna have to get me one of these.

    I am NOT the mommy

    I don't have children, so why is that I have to cook dinner when I'm not hungry. I don't have to, of course. I can tell him to go phuque himself. We got p'nut butter, and he knows how to make a sandwich. He won't starve. But he's coming in here every 10 minutes to remind me he is hungry and ask me when am I making dinner. To which I reply, I wasn't planning on it. Then he whines, and I tell him fine I'll make something in a little while. Why? Because, apparently, its my job. I don't know why it's my job. I know love blah blah blah, caring for your man blah blah blah. pffffffffft

    For the record...

    I need a shower

    Well dammit this just sucks. I desperately need to get in the shower. I never did make it into the shower yesterday, and you can seriously tell. I woke up this morning and decided to do a little work until I got motivated, but then I got blog surfing and got interested in a few things here and there, and now I want to get into the shower, but now the movie "Now and Then" is on, and I really like this movie. So, i dont want to go get in the shower right now. I know I must, though, cuz if I wait til the end of this movie, I'm sure there will be another movie I like on, and it will be endless. Before I know it, it will be tonight and I'll still be hangin out, unshowered. This would not be good! So, here I sit, in front of my computer, wearing just a Tshirt I've had on since yesterday, with my legs covered in Nair, trying to get motivated to go get in the shower. Actually, I have to do it, now that I got the Nair on, cuz I have to go wash it off. ok, so here I go.

    Before I go, heres some tips for those playing along at home:
    1. If you have a zillion little pin hole sized cuts on your legs, because you have a kitten that can't distinguish between your leg and a climbing/scratching post.. don't cover them with Nair. It will most likely sting.
    2. If you decide, since you're in the bathroom and it really, really needs to get done, to change the litter box, while still having Nair on your legs, be very careful how you pour the litter in and out of the box, or you may end up with tiny particles of kitty litter stuck to your legs.
    3. If you decide to clean the bathroom up a little, since you're there and doing the litter box anyway, don't forget about the Nair on your legs that is sposed to be wiped off in like 10 minutes, so that it hardens on your legs like a thin crust.

Terri is not a brain dead vegetable as characterized by her husband and legal guardian, Michael Schiavo nor a houseplant as implied by his attorney. Terri is not on a respirator or any artificial life support. She is a living human being and needs to be granted an opportunity to recover. Terri has not had any progressive rehabilitation or arousal therapy in more than ten years.
    In a trial initiated by Michael Schiavo, Circuit Court Judge, George W. Greer, issued a verdict delivered on February 11, 2000. Judge Greer granted authorization to discontinue Terri�s feeding tube. Judge Greer�s verdict will cause Terri to die in 10 to 14 days. Terri�s death will be by painful starvation"

    The Phone: Do you use your phone a lot? Yes, some days I do. Usually just for mundane crap, like bills and checking this or that, and conversations with my mom, my sister, Sugar, my friend Brenda, and other victims.

    Do you make lots of long distance calls? Not a lot, one or two a month usually. Usually to my best friend, Lisa, whom I plan to call tonight actually. She's in Massachusetts.

    What type of long distance service do you carry and why : I think I have Primus at the moment, mostly because its only like .04 a minute, cant get much cheaper than that!

    I'm trying to install a comment thingy, but it doesn't seem to want to work. Let's hope it does this time.

    Day Confusion

    I just realized it's Friday. I've been thinking, for some reason, that it's Thursday, but it's not. Actually, it feels more like a Tuesday, which is unusual for a Friday. I was thinking of calling Sugar and asking her if she wanted to go out on Saturday, and was thinking I could work tonight and tomorrow night, so I could take Saturday off, but now I only have one day to work, which would mean I would have to work during the day tomorrow, or not get drunk so I could come home and work tomorrow after we went out. Dang it! Well that just sucks. I lost a day somewhere, I hate when that happens!

    New Tunes

    I got some new CDs today and I'm busy uploading them all to my computer at the moment. I do this with all of them I buy, and then I put the disc in my changer or back in the case so it doesn't get ruined. Under normal circumstances, I would then be able to go to Kazaa and while searching for new music or songs I like, I could share my stuff with others, but now, thanks to the POS RIAA, I'm not likely to do that because I don't want to get fined or arrested for the heinous crime of sharing a song. Well, okay, I still do it, once in a while, but now I feel like a very bad girl when I do. I keep waiting for the song police to knock on my door. The stupid thing about the whole RIAA thing is, that most of the CDs I buy I probably never would buy had I not been able to first listen to the songs from downloading them on Kazaa. I don't want to spend money on a CD that may have one or two songs I like, and the rest of it is crap. Plus, I have found several new groups I like through checking them out on Kazaa. Anyway, this is what I got:
    Atomic Kitten
    Kelly Clarkson - Thankful
    Jason Mraz - Waiting for My Rocket to Come
    Beyonce - Dangerously in Love
    How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days Soundtrack
    Anastasia - Freak of Nature
    Madonna - Music

    My new camera

    This is going to be my new camera, I won it and as soon as it gets here I'll be able to take pics again. ..yeah!! 85.00 Ebay is great! Kodak CX4200 width="410" height="345" border="0"align="center">

    They Grow up so fast

    Little Elmo made it all the way to the litter box by himself today..sniff sniff. This may not seem like a big deal, but up til now, when he's had to go he would meow, and I would carry him to the bathroom to the litter box and wait patiently for him to do his bizness and then I'd carry him back in here. He's not crippled or retarded, he just couldn't get there because of the dogs. But today I walked into the bathroom, and there he was all by his little lonesome, and he looked so proud of himself too.


    J got a job I'm so unbelievably happy. Now, lets just hope he keeps it and it works out. He'll be working for the school fixing computers, and he says he'll be making $10 an hour. Its not great, but its way better than the $0 an hour he's been getting. Any little bit will be a help, it means I won't have to pay for car expenses or buy his nasty, disgusting cigarettes anymore. He can finance his own death. Plus, he may even actually give me some cash now and thats always a good thing. :::doing the happy dance:::::
    I'm just testing out some stuff with these short little posts, and will post for real a little later.
    It doesnt seem like its been so long since i've been able to post, guess I've been busy.
    I finally found time to start a new blog. I somehow screwed up the template for my other one
  • The first one
