All the News..pfffft

Wow.. I guess I've really dropped the ball on the blog front lately, haven't I. I wish I had something exciting to report as to why I haven't made a post in a while, but unfortunately it's just same ol', same ol' work and more work...too little time in my day. I'm swamped and it's not looking like it's gonna slow up anytime soon. I guess that's a good, being in demand is job security, right? I do have some good news to report, J got a J-O-B!! Yeah..yippeee.. thank GAWD. He starts some time this week. Its just a security job, while he waits on a computer job his friend is supposed to hook him up with, but, unfortunately, knowing his friend, I'll be shocked if it ever actually materializes. On the downside..and there's always a downside ain't there...for him to get this job so far has cost me about 150.00 (which I'll get back out of his first check, but still!). He had to pay for a class, and then another 70.00 to actually get his security guard license (WTF??) and then another 15.00 for a flashlight he HAD to have and he needed a certain kind of shoes...which I haven't shelled out for yet, but I'm sure I will by the end of the week. Plus, I'm gonna have to give him gas money so he can get to work and to his job/s. grrrrrrrrrr. Actually, in a round about way, it cost me 400.00, because he bounced his car payment last month and they threatened to repossess and send the check to the State's Attorney if he didn't pay it..no car = no job.. so guess where the 250.00 for that came from!! uh huh!! I got a little pissy about all this expense, that I can't afford BTW, and kinda went off on him about it being bullshit that I gotta shell out all this money for him to get a job, but I'm trying to be positive and just look at the fact that he will be making money, he'll pay me back what I put out, and then It will be a lot better. I hope. I've decided to just put him and the BS outta my head and not let it piss me off, cuz otherwise he'll be sleeping in his car. That wouldnt be very nice of me..and kinda stupid to throw him out now that he might be actually able to pay to live here. I'm kinda hoping the other job will come through too, and he will be able to work BOTH jobs..that way he'll be gone lots and lots of hours, and just come home and hand me cash once in a while. I could be lovin' that! I've decided to focus more on the fact that it's like SPRING around here the last few days. The air smells all spring-like, there's robins in my yard, my flowers are all starting to bloom, and the pool is almost ready for swimming. I figure maybe another month and I'll be in there! Yippee!! so, there may always be a down side, but there's always a positive side too.. its all in the attitude, my friends! When life gives ya lemons, ya know..

Super bowl Tickets

Wanna go to the SuperBowl? Hurry! There's still tickets available..if you got an extra $2000 to $4000!!!! Super bowl Tickets - Purchase Tickets Online for Super bowl WOW. They're selling PARKING SPOTS for 200-300 dollars. Daaaaamn. People have rented their houses and apartments out for the week for from hundreds to $10,000+ dollars. It's FOOTBALL PEOPLE!! Just daaaaaaamn I'm so tempted to run downtown and join the fun, but I just have got to work. Plus, I got $11.00 to my name, so it's not like I'd be able to have any big fun ..can't eat or drink anything, and can't even buy souvenirs. But there's free concerts and tons of celebs down there. The Landing is packed (where Terry Bradshaw and those guys are broadcasting from) and so is Metropolitan Park (where Kelly Clarkson, Randy Jackson, and Jillian Barberi are). I'm sure it's a madhouse and you'd have to park a zillion miles from everything..probably this side of the river..and walk over the bridge to get to the Landing. No thanks.. my back would be in agony. But it sure looks like some serious fun!

SuperBowl Schmooperbowl

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! The Superbowl is here in Jacksonville, and all I've heard is Superbowl, Superbowl, Superbowl for the past few weeks. Lord will I be glad when its over. There has been fireworks every night for the past three nights, which I couldn't go to :::pout:: because I had to work, and the traffic is just OMG. There are all kinds of people everywhere, the Wal-Mart has one of those little tourist trap type kiosks at the front of the store with "Jacksonville, Florida" doodads and souvenirs on it. There are, apparently, tons of celebrities here, partying and having a blast, but I have no time..cuz I got two jobs..no money..cuz I got too many bills I had to pay..and no way to get there if I did. So the Superbowl sucks. The players were out at the bars partying with people the other night, and I missed it. pffft. Not that I'd want to go out and hang with celebrities anyway, given the gigantuan size of my ass. I am back on Weight Watchers, because my attempts at trying to start and stick to a diet on my own have met with miserable failure. I lose 10 or 15 pounds, and then gain it all back ..and then some. So, I'm drinking tons of water.. TONS..and floating. I spend a large amount of time in the bathroom these days. The good thing about upping your water intake is you get a lot more exercise. You walk back and forth from the kitchen to get water, and then back and forth to the bathroom to pee, about triple the number of times you would without the extra water. The good thing about all the drinking and peeing is I do feel lighter. I don't have a scale or access to one, not that I'd get on it anyway, so I'll never know if I'm actually losing or not. Oh well, back to work I guess. ..see how much I can get done between pee breaks.

Johns Hopkins Magazine Interesing article

I found this article today Hunger for the Glorious Future and thought it was interesting enough to share. I'm dieting again..pfffffft. I guess it sounds promising to be able to live longer and all that by cutting down your calories..but what a sad way to live. I don't know if I'd be willing to cut out real food..like no more Ben& Jerry's EVER!! just to live a few years longer. Without cake..what are you living for? lol
