Leaving 2009 Behind

It's about that time. Where everyone writes the obligatory post about what they are going to do for the new year. Or what they hated/loved about the year past. So what should I do?
I've never been good with "New Year Resolutions" I also don't do so well with Lent. Because I don't stick to anything. I am definitely not a self motivator.

Side rant...I can not spell definitely without help from spell check. This then will be my first NYR:
Learn to spell definitely. And now that I have typed it out multiple times it looks weird. Kinda like the word Stripe.

As I'm sitting here eating Fritos and this awesome ranch/cottagecheese/sour cream dip, I'm wondering why I have a weight problem. No, I kid. I'm wondering what the hell happened in 2009. Lots of shitty things happened to people, and for me too, I'm not leaving myself out of this.
I will point out that I have had this blog up and running now for almost a year. I'm wondering where to go with this, if I just want to keep it as a rambling nonsensical blog that's just for me and I allow you to peek in on it on occasion. Or do I want to delve deep and turn this into something that is coherent.
But what would I do? I mean I'm all scattered so there's got to be a way to limit myself and direct this blog towards something. I just don't know what.
And then I ask myself.. "why?" Why do I want to change? Why not stay the same, being this way hasn't sucked too terribly bad. I have more readers then I did when I first started.

Side question: How does one sustain themselves by being a Professional Wind Boarder. Honestly.

Oh and just to warn you I am going to attempt a blog a day in January. The theme is "Best" I need some topics. But I'm not going to do this on THIS blog. I'm going to shift over to my newish/other blog. I'll give you all the address when I get to it. I will link it on my page as well. I want to keep this one as my rambling nonsense and use that one for my NaBoPoMo or whatever the fuck the letters are. I will also do a post on here...on occasion. If you're lucky. Right now I have a topic in mind and if I can pull it off I think it will be hilarious.

Okay I think I might be done with this ADD post today. I really have way too much going on in my pea brain to actually sit down and type it out.

Here's why I suck as a salesman

I'm getting worse as I go with my Transcription. I don't know why, I don't know what I'm doing wrong. But apparently I cannot do it. Every assignment comes back worse then the one before. I get all the medical words right, but can't seem to figure out where and when these people want commas. I've been rereading the chapter on grammar and still haven't figured it out. So I'm apparently wasting 3 grand on something that I am apparently not cut out to do. Which is AWESOME! Good thing my job at the mart is going so well, if anything I can climb the ladder there! YAY! Just what I always wanted to with my life! RETAIL! ugh. Sorry. I just don't know what to do or where to turn to now with this stuff. I don't understand why it's so nit-picky.

I am so not in the mood to blog. It's sad. So I'll leave you with this...a little Christmas Day video.

Pictures from the new Camera

Okay he's contained, safely in the bathtub, yeah, yeah tell me how safe that is. I'm right out side the door and I keep yelling at him anytime he's quiet. Oh and I keep telling him not to drowned I know that helps too.

So! here are some pictures from the new camera. I want to show you all what I had for dinner the other night and share with you my awesome "lil' smokies" dinner. hahaha....(I'm totally mocking all of you that do "recipe" posts right now. I am)

First start with a package, or two, or three of awesome little Smokies. mmmm....little smokies...

Then add your favorite BBQ sauce. I go with Original because I'm boring. And lame.

Now this is the tricky part...Put these two important ingredients into a pot, TOGETHER. Okay wait, You need to remember to keep this at medium to medium low. Because if you walk away with it on medium high, the bottom will burn to shit and you will loose half the smokies...I don't know this from experiance...or anything...

Mmmmmm look at those little smokies!!

So there you go, there's my awesome reciepe for Little Smokies. And now some other random photos from the new camera.

Here's Oscar "petting" his "caterpillar" or french fry as normal people call them.

He's in training to be a P.J. Party DJ. Yup yup.

This is honestly the BEST picture I have ever captured of a cat. Do you see her tongue sticking out?! Are you kidding me?! The whitness of the fur throws off the exposure but whatever. I don't have photo shop. Any rich twitter friends wanna send me that?

So this camera has already proven itself to me. Go back through and look at previous photos. Can you tell the difference between 2 megapixels and 6? Because I kinda can, and I am no photographer. 

Typing Quick Before the Kid gets into anything else...

Seriously I haven't been on the Computer in two days. Because every time I tried Oscar would get into shit. Like right now? Okay a little bit ago, he was in his grandma's bathroom, elbows deep in the toilet playing with a toy. Awesome! Before that he was in her room messing with god knows what. He said he was "drinking water" but I don't believe it for a second. At this moment I have no idea what he's doing. And that scares the crap out of me.

I don't know what's up with me but I haven't been liking being on the net or the computer lately. I think it's because I'm mad at my Medical Transcription class. They're total bitches about grading and make me feel like I was never taught how to write a sentence. I have even reread their chapter on grammar 5 times now to figure out what the fuck I'm doing wrong every assignment. I have yet to figure it out. Seems as though they change the rules for EVERY SINGLE FUCKING ASSIGNMENT. So why train at all? If the rules are different for EVERY different transcription what the hell am I doing here?? And the shit that they get me on is REDICULOUS and doesn't change the structure or meaning of the fucking sentence.

I apologize for all the f bombs. I know I don't really throw them around that much, but as you can see I'm super angry at the moment. If it wasn't an online class I would go into someone's office and punch a bitch right in the face. I swear to God.

Other then that life has been super fantastic. Everyone is home with my parents except me. So I'm throwing myself a pity party here. I'm a saaaddd Randa. We're supposed to go over to my Aunts for Christmas dinner so that should be interesting fun. Work is going splendidly I got notice that I am now a permanent employee, and my mother already has her delusions of grandeur for me. "You'll be upper management in no time!" She's the only mom who would be proud that her daughter is a manager at a W.M. So yeah, I still like going into work, everyone at this one is actually pretty pleasant to work with. So I guess that's a plus. And paying bills feels really good.

I got a new camera from a super cool Twitter friend, that I can not stop bragging about. It's been tons of fun taking pictures, and I've already sucked a set of batteries dry. Which apparently isn't hard to do! But hey I've got a lot of random picture of Oscar now! YAY! He hates loves the camera.

Anyway I need to get going, I typed this furiously and fast to get it all out there, and now it's back to chasing and yelling at a kid who doesn't seem to want to just sit still for just half a freaking second.

Friday List Day is back...100 things..

We're going back to basics on this one. If you need to catch up go here... 100 Things Chapter 1 and then here... 100 things part Dos

Okay here are the early years of Randa Dawn...

70. For, I believe, at least one year of my life I was Wonder Woman. I have told this before but I like to brag. I mean I watched the show (I remember an episode where WW was spinning around tied up in a chair to transform). I wore under-roos that had the stars on the butt and the top like W.W. And I would not answer to Miranda, or Randa. When I was almost done with the phase, my awesome uncle made me wrist cuffs, headband and lasso (Lassoop, I called it) and I was thrown right back in. Mom was "overjoyed" to say the least. The sad thing is, there is only one picture of me as W.W. and that was a Halloween picture from preschool. Mom thinks that the reason she has no evidence was because she got wrapped up into watching me play this character she forgot to record it.
69. I used to also pretend to be a dog. So much so that I wore holes in the knees of every pair of pants I had. The went on well into 3rd grade.
68. I would pretend to be a dog in Church and I barked at the Priest, and I also lifted my leg to a pew...My sister was so glad to be related to me.
67. My best friend when I was in kindergarten to 4th grade was a boy named John. I would say his last name but then you would google him and get to make fun of him about how we used to play My Little Ponies and SheRa all the time. That's right. He had the greatest room EVER. It was huge! I want to go back to that house to see if it really was, or if it was because I was small.
66. He stopped being my friend in 4th grade, and we were never really friends again, and I never really knew why. It was probably because I turned into a total bitch.
65. I met John's "roommate" at a friend's wedding a couple years back. He wanted dirt about him, I told him about the ponies. It came as no surprise to him because apparently John is gay. I had no idea, honestly. The last time I saw him he was a total Frat guy. I also told his roommate to make sure that if John tried to say that the Ponies were his sisters, to call him on it. They were his. He even had the castle. Man I miss those days.
64. One day when my mom went to the store my sister was being mean to me so I packed up all of my ponies and "ran away" all the way to the weird fern bush in the front yard, where I pretended I had a fort.
63. I don't have many memories before the second grade. I can remember my first grade teacher, but nothing about the first grade.
62. My first memory of school though was getting pushed in the swings by my sister's friend and thinking that I was going to go over the bar.
61. My first second grade memory was of two boys talking about my friend who was "the new girl" and how she was "the cutest girl in the class." That always made me jealous, but I still liked her.
60. That friend and I would go on to get into a lot of trouble together. Not real trouble just dumb stuff.
59. I would play pretend so much by myself that I hardly remember much of my family when I was little.
58. I used to fall asleep before dinner and then get woken up by my sisters and think it was the next day.
57. My sisters liked to get me to talk in my sleep a lot too. They would ask me questions, which would end up getting me hit by one of them.
56. I never noticed until a little while back but my mom had a pattern to our names...The girls had M names, with the middle name having 4 letters, and the boys had A names. Which is interesting because my dad has an M name(well not his "given" name) and my mom has an A name. hmmm.
55. My grandma used to say "Colder then a Witches Tit" and I never knew that was a bad saying until one day we went to the grocery store and I said it really loud and she shooshed me. I didn't know WHY it was a bad saying, until High School. Yeah, I'm slow.
54. I was the typical shy 3 year old, but when someone asked me "What does your mom call you" I said "Her little food and farter." My mom's proudest day with me.
53. I was the shortest girl in my class until I think 7th grade. Then everyone stopped growing and I kept going. I still wish I wouldn't have stopped at just 5'9" though.
52. Oh! I got a wart on my tonsils! Right around the time my youngest brother was born. I remember mom was gone and I had to get a shot in my butt. And it actually choked me, I remember not being able to breath at times. My oldest sister told me that she told dad that I stopped breathing and he said "Oh she's just snoring" and then I got the shot...Then I had to go to Bend, (Closest big town) to the doctor and he went in and snipped it out, then teased me. He asked if I wanted to keep it and I was all for it, but no, I didn't get to keep my tonsil wart.
51. I only had one boyfriend before meeting Jesse. His name was Jason, and I was in the fourth grade. My sister told me he was using me for our Nintendo. He broke up with me because I wouldn't wear a stupid bracelet that he bought me. I also never kissed him. I wasn't very sad that he broke up with me.
50. We had a Cocker Spaniel named Muffin, who would follow me to the bus stop almost every day. She also laid in the middle of the road a lot, but never got hit by a car. I also had another dog named Rascal, who "ran away" or so THEY told me, but then when I was older my oldest sister said "Oh he probably got ran over or something." They're so cruel to me.

There you go, some history...Next time...Who knows where I'll take this list!!

Total Blogging Block

I need some help. I need something to blog about and I've got nothing, I really want to write SOMETHING but my brain isn't working. It must be because I don't get to hang out at home and surf the internet all day. Who knows. All I know is right now I've got NOTHIN'
But if I have to say something I will say this:
Get your ass out there and watch The Hangover. Single handedly the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. I had tears running down my cheeks by the end of it.

Saturday Night Live

Hey people it's Sunday. Is anyone going to berate me into eating less? Because I did. I have started cutting my portions down again to try and get to normal sized meals. I'm starving.

So I missed Saturday Night Live and I missed one of the funniest skits ever. Seriously it's one of my top contenders.
Kristin Wig is awesome.

Oh and then there's this one, with Christopher Walken, who I love whenever he's on SNL...

So with that start I'm going to try and weed my favorites down to 5 favs.
Starting with Will Ferrell. I love all the cheerleader skits that he does. Actually I love everything that Will Ferrell does. He's awesome. And I miss him on SNL.

I could add tons and tons of the new digital shorts, including Mother Lover, Dick in a Box, Lazy Sunday, but here's one of my favorites.

And of course I cannot make this list without putting my love Chris Farley in it, seriously any skit he was in was awesome, and this is just the one that everyone loves, and quotes the most:

Hold on a moment, I'm verklempt, talk amongst yourself.

And here is my lover...I mean Justin Timberlake with Kristen Wiig as the "Target Ladies" too freaking funny.

Oh and an extra because I love Eddie Murphy and the old school...

A bit of the Christmas Cheer to you!

So since I have no decorating sense I leave it to my mother who for several years now has had "themed trees" every Christmas. I put in a call to her the other week and got in return her 1997 theme of Gingerbread men. I know that it was 97 because on the back of the gingerbread men there's a date. And I must say that I think it's pretty stinking cute. We went and got just a little tree. We didn't want to over do it our first year out. Got the lights on it and then with some "help" from a three year old we got the thing decorated, all while listening to Bing Crosby sing Christmas Music.
Here's the proof. Oh and BTW these were taken by a real camera! A camera that is now MIA because my son is obsessed with it and I'm sure has stashed it somewhere.

And no we didn't clean up around it before I took pictures. Oh and I have decorations around the windows now. Yes I'm getting in the spirit!
Now off to form a search party for the missing camera!

100 things About Me...Part Dos

Part 2 of my 100 things about me.
To catch up simply read the entry below this one or click here! 100 Things

Weird/Gross Things That I'm admitting.
79. I bite my nails. Really bad.
78. I have bit my toe nails. (recently??)
77. I chew/smell my hair. It's a weird compulsion thing that I have done forever. I like to smell my hair. I do chew on it, but I don't swallow it, oh and I hate having a single hair in my mouth. That's weird.
76. Awkward situations in movies/shows make me uncomfortable.
75. I fart all the time. But not in public. I gross Jesse out all the time. Yet he still likes me!
74. When I was in school, High School, and before, I would NEVER go to the bathroom at school because I was afraid the fire alarm would go off and I would have to run out with my pants down.
73. I was petrified of the fire alarm until 6th grade. Even after that though, I wouldn't go to the bathroom.
72. I had a dream recently that a dog was trying to hump me. And not my leg, but actually trying to hump me.
71. I don't poop very often. Like sometimes I can go three days before I have to go. I have always been like this.

100 Things about me...You're in for it now...

I just saw a good way to break this up into sections that I can manage. And I think I'll do it in steps, so you keep having to re-read things...ha!!

Me...Where I came from, (family)
100. My mom and dad have been together for almost 40 years. Don't know if they should be but they are!
99. Lots of people who know me know this...I have 2 older sisters and 2 younger brothers.
98. I'm "bigger" then both my sisters. Taller and fatter. I'm awesome!
97. I'm "bigger" then my youngest brother. Not taller though. Just fatter. We were at one time an equal amount away from 200lbs. But instead of going down I keep going up.
96. My family is all above average height.
95. My mom had ten kids in her family.
94. My dad had 3.
93. Due to my mother's awesome memory, I have 3 birthdays. Well due to my dad too. My real one is on August 2nd. But mom gets confused because my brother's b-day is on the 4th...of January, and by the time August comes around she forgets and thinks mine is on the 4th. Then one year my dad thought my birthday was on the 10th, which is my nephew's birthday. So when I turned 19 I ended up being 21. And got a beer from my sister for it!
92. All of us except my baby brother, who's not really a baby, has kids. I'm the only one with just one.
91. Oldest sister has 3 boys. I don't know their ages. Just the oldest because well he's been around the longest!
90. Second oldest has two. Girl/Boy combo
89. Oldest brother/younger, has two. Boy/Girl combo.
88. I was the oldest when I started having kids. At 27.
87. I've said this before, but I grew up in one house. Mom, dad and oldest sister moved there and then never left. I don't think they'll ever leave. Unless one of us wins the lottery!
86. My parents never smoked. My mom swears she's never tried weed.
85. Might need some back up on this but I think ALL of my siblings and I have "tried" weed.
84. One of my dad's favorite movies is Easy Rider.
83. We all have a very dry sarcastic wit, that we got from our dad.
82. We all have a very sick sense of humor, that we got from my mom's side of the family even though she tried to keep us from getting it by keeping us from her family.
81. We are all super competitive. Yet we all have low self-esteem. Mom has yet to figure out why.
80. When we were all older we pissed dad off so bad that he stopped going to church with us. On Christmas Eve.

Next time: Weird/Awkward things I'm admitting.

My Thoughts for the day

I think all this nonsense about "interviewing" people on blogs is just a contest to see which blogger is this witty-est. Yes I know that's not a word. But really it all seems like a pissing contest to me. "My questions are funnier then yours!" "yeah well my interviewee is a better blogger then yours!"
Really this is just because I'm jealous because I'm not a famous enough blogger to be interviewed and I really am not a good enough journalist to actually interview anyone.Maybe I'll do it anyway...who wants me to question them?!

Oh and a thought about my last post in which I said that I would have
Mariah Carey
Ben Folds
Josh Groban.
I have to expand. And probably take out Beyonce. Because honestly I only like her most recent CD. And her music isn't diverse enough for me to really enjoy.
Eminem I would love to have because he changes so drastically yet stays the same from his very first CD to now.
Mariah well because I love her. And she has a lot of CDs to listen to.
Ben Folds because really? He's awesome, I saw him live and I loved him.
Josh Groban, because I like singing in Italian!
I think I will trade Beyonce for Red Hot Chili Peppers. Yeah! That makes me hip right?! Because that's what I'm going for here. HIP. Wait, no, Outkast. Yes! I love Outkast.

CDs that I would not have(and my reasons):
Dave Mathews Band-I have NEVER liked this band. And yes I went to college. I can't stand his voice. He was funny on SNL but still don't like his music.

Bob Marley-I am not technically a white person because I do not like Bob Marley. I don't even really like reggae music all that much. I'll listen to it if it's on, but I'm not going out to reggae concerts.

U2- I know I'm not the only one to had Bono and his stupid sunglasses. I hate them. Like vehemently. More then I hate the word Hubby.

Pearl Jam-Do they sing "Don't call me Daughter?" because that's the dumbest song ever.

Pink Floyd-I don't have an explanation, just never got into them, never liked it.

The Beatles-Now I like a couple songs. I will sing a long because my mom had their album and yes I know some lyrics. But if I were a fan of Rock Band I wouldn't go out and buy the Beatles version. They're not that great!

Jack Johnson-he reminds me of this soccer player I knew in college. Total bone head.

Because Aunt Becky Told Me to.

I'm not doing this really to enter a contest because I just told someone in a comment that I've only entered one contest before. And NOW I'm a big fat liar. But honestly I like Aunt Becky and I might just maybe have a crush on her. (I'm one of many in a very long line) Anyway! She had this little youyou on her blog and wanted her commenters to post them on their blogs about them and then link it from her comments or something like that I can't remember and I didn't read it all. I just cut and paste. haha! Okay! Here! These are my answers!

1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?
Like all the time? No just when I'm at a buffet (pronounced buff-it) because it's the law at a buffet to get sprinkles on your ice cream.

2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why? 
Hubby. I don't know if technically it's "real" word but I hate it. I think it's dumb. Call your husband by his name when you talk about him. Everyone knows that he's your "hubby" shut it already.

3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
What flavor would I be? I got called "white chocolate" a couple times in my life because I supposidly was a white girl "Trying to act black" but I didn't really "try" it just was the way I was. So I guess I would be white chocolate, but I don't personally like white chocolate so I think I would have to be Neopolitan.
4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
Hmm this is a hard one because most of my "chores" are boring, but not pointless. My least favorite chore is cleaning out poopy underwear. 

5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
My favorite nickname has to be Chode. Because it started out as a horrid thing and then turned into a name I love and get all mushy when my friends call me it.I also like RandaDawn because it made me feel a little closer to my dad when he called me that. When I worked for him he never said "Miranda will help you with that" he always said "RandaDawn (all at once like it was one word) will help you with that." It was cute and made me feel like a little kid when I was 22.

6) Your stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?
Mariah Carey
Ben Folds
Josh Groban
(I am soo not a hip mom...)

7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?
That is the God's honest truth right there. EVERYTHING is better with bacon. No futher talk of it either. mmmmm bacon....

8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?
"That your third grade teacher was wrong and you can be just a mom, and be happy doing it."

Mommy Wants Vodka

Holding YOU all acountable. OR Wordy Wednesday Posted on Thursday.

Uhm so do you remember when I said that Sundays were going to be about me and my working out? Yeah did you notice that the Sundays after I said that, there was no mention of my weight or anything? HELLO? You were all supposed to hold me accountable! I can't be left to my own devices here people!
So I haven't done anything. I tried. And now I can see how terrible my core really is because bagging groceries for 7 hours sucks. And I was kinda loosing my breath last night because my back hurt so stinking bad. The muscles were burning. BURNING!!!
So what if it's "wordless Wednesday" here's my words! (Edited because I didn't get this posted till today, Thursday)
Ring- Jesse decided out of the blue on Monday to take me to a jewelry store and pick out a ring. He gave me a limit, a rediculous limit and I blew right by it. The ring is on layaway perfect poor people's love story. There was no proposal linked to the ring. We haven't discussed that part. I have been told by my eldest sister that the wedding will happen "when your sisters get off their asses and plan it." and I added "and pay for it." Because I am not paying for it. We just had to put out money for the damn ring.

Poop- Oscar was doing really good about pooping in the potty all by himself. And then something went terribly wrong. And four days now pooping in his unders. Nothing makes me gag quicker then poopy unders. Well there is something but I won't go into it. I hate poop.

Work-Has been a lot of fun. I like all the people I work with and I have to say that there isn't a lot of good dental hygiene going on at the store. But they're nice people! Oh and having one car for three working people sucks balls. big time.

Crap, I'm already out of words. Maybe this is why they call it wordless Wednesday, because no one has anything to say.

So What if I can't post every day?

You all know that I'm not a writer right? So therefore I do not have the stamina to write EVERY single day in one month. I'm proud of how many post I did do though. I broke previous records. And I am trying harder now to write more often. So there!
Thanks to Renegade Moms for sharing this badge. I am displaying it proudly!

Stolen Meme...

On my blog stroll today I saw that http://www.mommyisrocknroll.com did a meme and well it has some good questions and some that I don't think I've answered before. So I'm stealing it!! Thanks!

Name someone with the same birthday as you:
I had to google it. I did one of those birthday things on Facebook one day and I could have swore they said Hitler had my b-day but, he's not on this list. Uhmm so there's a lot of Athletes though. Which is interesting, I guess.

Where was your first kiss?
Where? Uhm I think it was in Burns, and I think it was with some guy who was like 10 years older then me. Oh and it was when I was19. yeah, so?

Have you ever seriously vandalized someone else's property?
hehe. Maybe. If by vandalize you mean wrap in caution tape. Oh yeah and in high school my cousin and I put a tampon that we doused in soda on a guy's antenna on his car and he blamed it on someone else.

Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex?
Uhh yes yes I have. I punched a boy in the face at a party. Apparently "it made the sick sound" He was calling me names and I was done.

Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people?

Yes, I had to sing Kareoke to get out of paying an $81 bar tab. Ice Ice Baby.

What's the first thing you notice about your preferred sex?
Necks. And the way they dance.

What really turns you off?
A smelly sack.

What do you order at Starbucks?
I don't really go to Starbucks. I'm not a coffee drinker and I don't have money. Sorry to be a downer.

What is your biggest mistake?
Not using my University to my advantage. Sure I made wonderful life long friends, but I should have maybe looked into the schools mentor-ship possibilities a little more.

Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose?
Like, am I a cutter? No I'm not. But I hurt myself emotionally a lot.

Say something totally random about yourself:
My boobs like to hide in my armpits.

Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
Never. Never Ever.

Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows?
I'm watching Hoodwinked at this very moment.

Did you have braces?
Yes, in 8th grade until almost the end of ninth.

Are you comfortable with your height?
I'm 5'9" I'm comfortable with it but I always wanted to be taller.

What is the most romantic thing someone of the preferred sex has done for you?

I don't know. I'm not a romantic type of girl.

When do you know it's love?
When you try and shove him away really hard and he doesn't budge.

Do you speak any other languages?

Uhhh no. I took Spanish in high school and College and the only thing I got out of my college course was a crush on two different boys. ha!

Have you ever been to tanning salon?

Hell no, my skin is too sensitive for that stuff.

Have you ever ridden in a limo?
Yeah from SLC to Wendover, NV. Fun times!

What's something that really annoys you?
Bad drivers. And open cupboards.

What's something you really like?


Can you dance?

Yes, yes I can, and not like a stripper. But not like a dance team member either. The only choreography that I could ever follow was a kata...I tried out for dance team but found out that I was not a choreograph kinda girl.

Have you ever been rushed by an ambulance into the emergency room?
Nope. But I did make emergency room nurses tear up.

Painless right? I know I'm awesome.

Because I have nothing to write...

I've been seeing a lot of "Wordless Wednesday"  posts. But since I don't have a lot to say today, I'm going to post pictures, for my very own "Wordless Saturday."

 Look at those cute pajamas! They're from my friend Leslie's mom.

The only time I can get him to look at the camera is to surprise him.

Do you see how I need a new camera? This is Oscar screaming at Jesse, right before he slapped him. He has started to really like screaming lately.

He put his unders on his head. And then kept them on there for a while.

Look at this kid! He's watching Little Einsteins.

We got a box of tupperwear for 5 dollars! And they're the best toy Oscar has gotten lately!

Thank You Little Einsteins and I hate You!

I'm not talking about the now defamed "Baby Einstein" but The Disney Channel's "Little Einsteins" which is now Oscar's very favorite show. I just had to pause right now to restart another show. All I hear all day long is "Linestien?!" (That's how he says it, no my kid is not smarter then yours, he can't pronounce Einsteins) So I turn it on and for a half hour at a time I can get something done. Yesterday I got to talk to my "adviser" for school for a whole 18 minutes before he started yelling at me. Thank goodness we can barely afford the DVR, I'd be screwed. I think he has more shows recorded on it then I do. I have yet to get to watch my Monday night shows because well yeah I had to work on stuff for my class and well this keeps him entertained.

I'm almost half way done with my class! I'm so excited! If I can get it done before February I'll be all good to go! I'm giving myself that dead line so I can get a job before my temp assignment gets done with my other work. I'm trying really hard not to get frustrated with it all, but it's really hard. The thing is the rules change for EVERY assignment. And the "advisor" told me that. "well you can't do the same thing on every assignment." What kind of sense does that make? Then why do they have "rules" if everything changes every time?? And when I think that I've got it and it's good. It's not. And it's only getting harder. This next assignment I have to get an 85% or better on it. UGH! And for the midterm I have to get that the FIRST time around. No do overs. I don't think I'll make it. But to me it just doesn't seem practical. Especially after talking to other people that are transcribing for doctors right now.
Well on that lovely note, I have to get going and work on my next assignment. I have to get it in by tomorrow. Gotta stay on schedule!

If I won the Lottery...

First off I promised that once I got paid I would start playing the lottery...I did.
And this is what I would do with my winnings....
First I will be selfish, these are the selfish things I'm going to be doing:
Paying off all our debt.
Buy a house in the old neighborhood and remodel it to what I want it to be and decorate it sensibly. Not lavishly. I will not pack my house with shit just because I have money.
I will however have a gigantic garage.
Hybrid Tahoe
Nissan Skyline
Chevy Camaro
A big ass RV
Then while the house is being remodeled we would take a vacation and see all of my friends. ALL of them.

Second I would give my family the following:
Pay off all of their debts.
Buy Barb a house and a car of her choice.
When I say debt I say house payments too.
And if they don't have a house I will buy one, and pay their taxes.
(listen don't talk to me about "taxes" and all, I know the stipulations this will get worked out seriously if I did)
Okay back to it.
I would also buy them transportation of their choice, and pay their bills for at least 5 years.
I would also fund any kind of random "biz" they got into...okay that is a lie.

For my mom and dad...
I would pay off everything. Absolutely everything. I would buy my dad an old corvette that he's been wanting and fund the whole thing to re-build it. I would give my parents anything they wanted. I would basically set up an account and just pay all of their bills all the time. Just so they would not have to worry about anything anymore. Oh and I would let my mom shop OFF the sales racks. So she wouldn't have to wait for that shirt she loved to go down to $15 from $45.

When it comes to my friends this is what I would do. Since most of my friends went to college, and grad school and med school and law school. I would pay off ALL of their student loans. And then I would pay for all of them to gather at least once a year somewhere for a yearly reunion. And pay for everything.
They would get anything they wanted. I would also pay their bills for them for at least a couple years if they needed me to.
Leslie and I have a special arrangement since we've talked about this. I would buy a store for us, a yarn store/scrapbooking store. But we wouldn't sell anything, we would just have it to have all the merchandise. Well we would sell stuff if people came into the store. But we wouldn't try to sell anything. Oh and our store would be called: "Yarny-Yarny Cut-Cut" (I have copywrited that so don't try and steal it, I know you want to!) We also have an arrangement that I would buy her a house, and the taxes on it. And give her a monthly allowance. (She better do the same for me if she wins the lottery)

These are the places that I would travel to if I won the lottery:
First to NYC to visit my best friend V and just go on a crazy spending spree.
Then to Africa on a safari, even though I'm shit scared of gigantic bugs, but I want to go to the Cheetah Conserve and help out. I would also donate a ton of money to that program.
Then I want to go to Japan, because well, why not?!
After that it would be a big trip around Europe.
Okay maybe just a big trip around the world. That sounds good.
When I finally get back to the states I will travel around in my big ass RV visiting friends and going to all the famous haunted places in the US.
And all the famous Steak Houses. I am going to just watch the travel channel and go where ever it tells me to! Like all the best water parks.
Oh! I would also take my ENTIRE family and shut down Disneyland for 3 days. Then we would head to Florida and see which one is better Disneyland or Disneyworld.
And now that I have this all down and out to the world I am holding myself to it.

"Put it back in your pants!"

I have realized that this is going to be said a lot more from now on. I love my boy. But really I get tired of seeing his wiener. Penis whatever YOU call it. I call it a wiener. I think because it's fun to say. Oh and this was just said "put your butt on mom!"
I am thinking that our roles her might start getting reversed. I have gone to work the past four days and Jesse has not...This has lead me to say when I walk in the door "where's mah beer!?" ha!
Today was an actual work day, well half day, I spent the first half "training" on the computers. And then the rest of the day was learning from another associate. It was fun. And then she left me. I had to work on a  busy register by myself. I made it, but my back didn't. I am OUT OF SHAPE! My core muscles are in a bad way. I hope to one day get them into some sort of working condition but for now I'm REALLY worried about tomorrow when I have to do this for 7 hours. I don't know if I will make it. I'm honestly not trying to be a wuss or anything but listen:
I haven't worked or done ANYTHING outside my home in over 3 years. I also haven't done any sort of "stand up all day, run around" work for over 5 years. So this is a big change for me. I'm going to try and not exaggerate and I think this is why I'm not a very good blogger. Because I tend to not stretch my truth too much. It might sound like an exaggeration but when I say that my body hurts from my neck to my toe joints, I am not kidding around. I am more out of shape then any other fat person. I got sweaty from scanning and bagging items. I don't know how fast I was going compared to other beginners but I thought I was going at a decent rate. I didn't have people tapping their feet or looking at their watches in exasperation. Sooo I think my first half day at work was good. I will say that I do like being in "retail" I put that in quotes because it's not like other retail stores. I do like being around people, I have to say this, because before I've said that I don't like to work with people. But you know what I don't like?
I don't like bitches in offices. I don't like catty bored women who start shit in office settings and make a hostile work environment for others. I never EVER want to work in an office setting again. I will work the rest of my life at Wal-Mart if I have to, to avoid an office setting. Even at my last job where I really liked everyone and all the people were really cool, there was office drama. And I was even a target at one time. And I don't like that shit. I will get my Medical Transcription done, but I will not work in an office, I will work at home from the comfort of my very own office/closet and not have to deal with other people fucking with me.
I'm sorry for that angryness. I had to get it out. I'm a little mad about a situation that my sister is in. And that's all I'll say about it.
Oh you know what else makes me mad? $32.00 for 200 text messages. I went over my 400 texts last month and it added that much to my bill. Did you know that it only costs 1/20 of a cent for those texts to get sent?? And they charge $.15, well T-Mobile does, a text?! That's re-donkulous.

Oh and this is what happens when I have no idea what to write about. You should be used to it by now. And now I'm done, I'm getting off the computer and resting my shoulders and back. And possibly sqeezing my fat body into our tiny bathtub.

I'm totally not good at blogging and working.
So working at WM is all good so far. I haven't learned anything pertinent beyond safety, safety, and checkers can't have scissors because they run with them and hurt people. I have also found that there will always be a separation between departments. "My department is way better then your department"
I will probably never post something earth shattering about working. Because really nothing earth shattering happens when I work. Lame.
Anyway this might be my resignation from blogging every single day. I am not good at doing things like this and working.
I will probably blog on my days off though. It looks like I might have a decently full schedule, that varies every day...which I don't like, but I will get used to.

Friday List Day!

So I had to actually go in to a real job today! My first day as a Wal-Mart employee! It was boring, I hate training, just a lot of safety stuff. We'll see, if I paid attention well enough I won't get hurt.
So I'm phoning it in by giving a list of email subjects and various one liners that Leslie and I say...

First off you can't not put something funny in a subject line here are the best from Leslie:
Next thing you know...
Bitch Bitch Bitch
Oregon Trail
Ty Cronin+pubic hair?
I hate yogurt
Juan es muy guapo
Hey, Durty
There's a rat in my butt
Spectacular hobo
Snap your bagles
Ex-boyfriends should get wiener punched
Oops I crapped my pants
Shame cave
Sorry Roger, you tiger now
Mirando Pando
Evil Shenanigans
I'm such a disappointment
Sunshine pants
Consider me Miles Davis
The music moves me, but it moves me ugly
I'm allergic to rocks hitting me in the face
Not in a totally dirty way
Sexy bike gang
There's no time for pleasantries
Oh yeah...meow
Turkey butts will chase you while your sleeping
I'm a Nigerian Prince!

Here's a list of My subjects TO Leslie, because I'm funny too damnit!!
I'm so sneeky you can't even hear me take a shower
Stupid Llamas
Punching Weiners
Shut it Jack! You shut your dirty manwhore mouth!

And then well the rest of them are just RE's back to her. I'm only funny when I'm drunk.

So all of these usually don't have anything to do with what is being said in the email. Which makes them all the better and more funny.

And this was what was said today while at Wal-Mart:
"I will slap a sicky!"

And this was said right after I said I'll probably have to write all this down"
"do it with the wrong hand!!"

Going to work and blogging is tough work, I now know why so many SAHM do it! haha! BURN! Kidding! Loves!
Oh and can I just say that the day that I have to go to work something huge blows up in the blogging world and I had to catch up?! Sick and wrong! I missed Twitter today. I did!

Offensive Thursdays?? Or...topics suggested by Leslie

(If your in a hurry skip down to the end for the important update)
I need something to write about on Thursdays. I got confused and almost did my "list" on the wrong day! So I figure since last Thursday I wrote about something, that might have been offensive, but then it ended up not being offensive because I was scared to put the offensive part in, I would try it again. But the stupid blogging blog has me in a choke hold. I don't know even know where I would start to be offensive. I'm just not that person. I'm also not a person that gets offended very easily. Except by big things like: bigotry and hypocrisy. Those two things really offend me.

Leslie gave me some blog ideas here they are: unicorns doing somersaults and million dollar homes not having laundry hook-ups.
Can you imagine a unicorn doing somersaults? I think that would be physically impossible but not impossible for a mythical creature such as a unicorn. But I think that the horn would get stuck in the ground and then it would do an awkward head stand. And now I'm picturing an upside down unicorn, with its big ol' butt sticking up in the air, I bet it would be pissed so its legs would be kicking all crazy like. Then I think another mythical creature would have to come to its rescue like an elf or something, but the elf would have to bring friends because just one elf could not help a unicorn in this situation.

And now a word to the rich: If you are buying a home that costs you over a million dollars maybe you should make sure that is is move in ready because really? Do you want to re-mod a house that already cost you a million dollars? If I were looking at homes, even in the 75K range, if it didn't have washer/dryer hook ups I would move on to the next. I don't even like renting houses or apartments without w/d hook ups.
I also saw one of those HGTV shows were the people were moving into a 600K house that didn't have updated appliances. I'm not talking about last years models I'm talking 80s models. I would move on, because really you're spending THAT much do you want to put even more into the damn thing?! My million dollar home would be move-in-ready, and if not I wouldn't buy it. I think though if I had a million dollars to spend on a house I would build from scratch and it would end up not costing me that much and it would have it's own energy source. Also I have beef with those 600K people because they won the lottery and then they remodled the house that they were in and then they moved out, to a house that cost over what they made in the lotto. Is that smart? In my opinion I don't think so.
Also a word to HGTV shows that are about selling houses. Okay a word to the people going into buy the houses: "THE CURTAINS DO NOT COME WITH THE HOUSE!" Neither does the furniture! I understand if a house is too cluttered, that I get. But really? Why comment on the pictures on the wall and the couches when clearly you are not getting those with the house.

So! I waited this long to get to the good part! I finally got a call from Wal-Mart and lo and behold! I am not a terrorist, and I am now going to be an employee! Which means money! Yay! For at least 120 days, that's my "contract" ha! Unless they want me longer. But now that gives me 120 days to get done with my class and get hired for a good job. So time to get to work! I start with my training tomorrow and then on Saturday, then who knows what I'll be working. I'm a little anxious and excited at the same time.
I haven't heard the whole story yet about my dad but last time I talked to mom she said dad told my aunt that he would only have to pay a $50 deductible. But mom didn't know for sure. So I probably shouldn't say anything just yet till we know for sure. But as of now, it sounds like it won't be costing as much for his meds, which is a good thing.

Losing Steam...And Veteran's Day Tribute.

I have hit a wall. A big wall that has writing on it that says "YOU'VE GOT NOTHIN!"
I had something in my brain last night and now it's gone. I think it was pretty good too, but my computer was off and I didn't want to turn it back on. I'm awesome.
I think I will blame it on The Little Einstiens that I have to watch all day long.
There's a trend going on my Facebook about saying what your thankful for every day 'till Thanksgiving. Today's theme is of course Veterans' Day. So everyone on F.B. is thankful for vets. Which is wonderful. I'm thankful for vets because I love hearing stories from my Gramps about the WW2. And he doesn't say it anyother way then "The WW2." this is my favorite: "We had lions and tigers and elephants, in the WW2." "Wait, what?" "Yeah on the boat, we had all those animals, and monkeys" "Really" "Yup"
Men in uniform get to me. Not like sexually but emotionally. I think that it's such a huge sacrifice to decide one day to go into the army and "protect" this country full of people who don't care about them, and who don't honestly get what they're doing or why they're doing it. It is just such a selfless thing to do that every time I see a man or woman in a military uniform it chokes me up. This is getting a little better for me though since we've moved out closer to the Air Force Base, because I see them a lot more.
My cousin just recently went into the Army, and just graduated from basic training. I saw a picture of him posted by his sister on F.B. and I just started crying. I keep telling him I'm waiting for my "Proud cousin of an American Soldier" but I have yet to get it. I am very proud of him. I don't think he looks at it as a selfless act though, and I don't think that if you asked a soldier why they did it they would look at it like a selfless act. Because then it wouldn't be...right? I'm talking in circles.

Anyway take some time out of your day today and find a Veteran and say thank you. They didn't go into the service for any sort of "thank you's" or great respect. But they deserve both.

Wishing for Anonymous Unsolicited Advice

Twitter has opened my world up to a host of brand new blogs and bloggers for me to stalk. This makes me happy, and also keeps me really busy. I barely have time to work on my transcriptions! Today was a little different, it was a boring day on twitter, so I got done with one transcription that I had to re-do because of a low grade. Then I started and finished typing out another one. I know! Amazing right? I didn't complete it, I was told to type it all out, let it sit, then go back and correct it again. So that's what I'm doing. Do you know how long it takes me to transcribe a 6 minute talk? A long freaking time! You try it sometime. It's tougher then you think. I thought when I first started that it would be easy, then I found out that it's not so easy. I think it's all the gigantic words doctors use. Whew, where was I headed.
Okay so I was on my blogging wandering and there was one that I like and that I have on my "blogroll" and she had done a vlog. Oooh, I soo want to do this now, because I am a follower! And apparently she said some inflammatory things on this vlog. But the comments, they were so freaking mean! And anonymous people commenting is just ridiculous. Especially when they're full of unsolicited advise that pertains to nothing really, and is just nasty. I have yet to get an anonymous mean comment, I don't know what I would do, I think I would laugh, but then on the inside I would be crying. Because I'm a wimp.  I really have no idea where this was going, so uhm I'll just say, if you have an anonymous comment full of unsolicited advice I will not take the advice. I will probably just laugh, and say "ohh anonymous, your soo silly!"
What I ate yesterday:
no breakfast
Top Ramen
Salad with dressing

Ad Ware Makes My Self-Esteem Plummet

I just set up Ad-Ware I think on Friday and already it's yelling at me that I won't make any money because I don't get 1000 visitors a day. Stinking Ad-Ware. Google Ads didn't make me feel bad! I got kicked off of Google Ads though because I only had two readers, my sister and my friend at the time and they would click 6 to 12 ads at a time and according to Google, that's cheating or what they call "inaccurate clicks" Whatever Google Ads!
The thing is I don't want a 1000 readers a day. I like the people that read my blog and I think I'll stick with them. I'm going for quality not quantity. And this isn't just to make me feel better about myself, this is about the freedom to say what I want to say and not to worry about people "hating me" or being my "minions." That word "minion" has been thrown around a lot lately in the blogs that I read and I think it's funny. Like bloggers are supreme beings. Or wait, popular bloggers, are supreme beings or maybe giant planets and we as non-popular bloggers are their moons.
I also want to say that my friend Leslie is also a contributor on this blog but she doesn't contribute very often because she feels like she's a little out of place. Or something like that, I wasn't paying attention to her when she was talking.
So why the Ads? Because I like to dream people. I like to fantasize that I will have a million followers swooning on my every word and backing up my every thought. I also fantasize that I can sing like Mariah Carey and have the body of Beyonce. But that's besides the point. I also just got bored the other day and thought I would torture myself by setting up those stinking ads. Oh and I am not supposed to say there is any incentive for people to click my ads, so I'll just say: "Hey...psssttt...you...you there, click on that ad. JUST ONE THOUGH! I don't want to get kicked off." You get nothing in return mind you. Just the satisfaction of getting me 6 pennies. Oh and if I ever get a lot of money, I will get you something pretty. Wait, is that an incentive?! I didn't say that.
I will promise that I will probably never get to go to
Blogher or any other convention set up for the blogger people because I am NEVER going to be that cool.

Oh and if you're still with me...Here's something else completely boring and not really what you want to read:
What I ate yesterday:
2 egg, cheese, polish sausage "breakfast" burritos
2 slices of pepperoni pizza
2 pieces of lemon cake
And around 32 oz of water.
For a "work-out" we walked around PetSmart and Boarders. Shut up.

Sunday's Will Now Be Body Awareness Day

It's a working title.
So since I think I want to do something about my weight "problem" I figured I better start something that might hold me accountable. So Sundays will be the day that I do a whole "this is what I did the past week." Maybe I should have done this on Saturday. No wait, maybe it should be goals for the week. Crap. I didn't think this out at all. Okay!
Here goes:
Sunday's will go like this...
Weigh in:
What I did last week:
What I will do this week:
Did I get what I wanted done?
I will try really hard to do a food diary. Which will be hard for me because I can't ever seem to document what goes into my mouth. But maybe this will also help me be more accountable for my actions. I will say how much of water I drank and so forth.
So I think at the end of each blog, since I have to blog every day will be what I ate from the day before, or that day depending on when I wrote the blog. I have been writing my blogs the night before I post them so hopefully I can keep this up.
I'm really hoping that I get this job with Wal-Mart because Jesse's mom gets a discount at Oz Fitness and if I have extra money I will go and get a membership there. And maybe if I'm lucky find someone who will help me train.
Secret dream time: I want to be MADE. Into an MMA fighter.

What is Saturday for at your house?

I want Saturday's to be me sleeping in and not having to listen to my kid from 6am to 8pm. But no I don't get that. I have to clean. Because Jesse makes me. I hate cleaning, ask my mom about this. I always have. I got stomach aches every time I had to clean my room when I was little.
I did manage to clean up the bathroom counter, it had every single bathroom item on it. I need to do some clearing out of things I don't use. But in the mean time I just put everything in the cabinate and walked away. I also got asked to wipe the counters off in the kitchen and sweep and mom. I feel like a child some days. I really do. So I still have to sweep and mop, instead I'm blogging. BECAUSE I HAVE TO BLOG EVERY DAY THIS MONTH!!!  I have to!! I signed up on the website! It's got to be done!
And I'm doing all this while Jesse struggles to put shelves up on a wall with no studs. There's a lot of knocking going on and a lot of me saying "good luck finding a stud in here, I haven't found one yet!" oooh burn!  Here's a picture of him working hard.

Look at that man. There are holes in the wall now, all over the place because he couldn't find a place to put the screws. He's having a tough time with these shelves, and I hope I'm giving him enough support.

I'm currently watching a terrible show on A&E. And don't tell me "oh are there any good shows on there"...because there are! That just might be my next post!
I might just turn this whole blog into lists. Lists for everything!
Give me a topic I'll make a list!
Oh my God I'm sooo freaking bored today! I really wanted to get out of the house, but Jesse was not taking the hint. We are going out to dinner, which I think is stupid because really do we have to?? But it's at the Casino, so Barb will get a discount and she's buying. So we're not spending money. Unless I can roll Jesse for a twenty and go try and win some money on a nickel slot.

Fridays are for Lists about ME!

I just made that up, can you tell? But I think with this whole "post a day" thing I need some themes. Soooo Fridays now will be odd things about me. Maybe just five at a time. I don't want to freak you out all at once!
To get started here are five things about me that some of you might know but most of you don't.

1. I don't like dim lit rooms. My dreams are most of the time super realistic except the fact that they're just a little low on the light factor. So in my waking hours I need light or else I don't know if I'm dreaming or not. I swear to God I'm not kidding about this. My lights in my bedroom has two bulbs and if one is out it bugs me and I have to have the other replaced. And even if there is light in the living room I still have to turn on a light when I go into the kitchen even though I can still see. Which is why we need those energy efficient light bulbs. Now don't get huffy so soon, I do actually turn them off when I leave the room, it's just when I'm in the room that I need the light.

2. I am a sleep-aholic. I love to sleep and have my whole life. I love two hour naps and would go to sleep at 8:30 when Oscar does just to get more of it. My favorite quote from Brak (Space Ghost Coast to Coast) is "I love sleeping, I wish I could wake up just so I can go back to sleep." But the downside of me sleeping a lot is my dreams, which if I get woken up get progressively more weird.

3. I have re-occurring dreams a lot. And most of them are apocalyptic in nature. The ones that reoccur, that is. They usually tend to have aliens in them too. And gigantic space ships and fighter jets. Oh and I dream almost every night, and tend to remember my dreams but I can never explain them as well as I see them. Which is terrible. I'm the worst dream teller in the world. Jesse won't listen to me when I want to tell him about a dream. This is one good thing about having his mom here she lets me tell her my terrible dream stories.

4. I don't think I could ever actually have a list of 100 things about me. That would take me forever. Because I'm pretty normal and boring. It would be a list that everyone would say "uh yeah doesn't everyone do that?" Part of that list would be something like: I watch too much TV. I am left handed. I am the only one in my family with curly hair and hazel eyes oh and the only lefty. I have a big Catholic family.etc. etc.

5. I don't like when women get into male dominated jobs and then have to decorate everything with pink. If I were able to be a mechanic I would just be a really good mechanic and not turn my business pink. Sure if you like the color I get it but really it just seems like they do it because pink is a "female" color and women identify with that color. I didn't own a pink shirt until three years ago, and it's my only one. I don't identify myself as a woman just by a color.

Hobo Ghosts (I will be offensive, just warning you)

The title will make sense later on in the post I swear!
I would first like to thank Leslie for giving me the fodder to fuel this fire. She told me the other day that she doesn't believe in ghosts. She has good reason, I'm not going to go into it, it's her story to share. I on the other hand have had 'weird' things happen to me that lead me to believe that there are ghosts. Now aliens, I can't wrap my head around aliens but ghosts, yeah I get that. (ha)
I haven't had a ton of 'paranormal experiences' just one or two. Once when I was sleeping I heard someone say my name and then blow in my face. I uhm haven't been able to sleep towards the edge of the bed since. When I lived with my uncle in his creepy apartment I swear I had something on my bed every night with me. And then after I moved out and then went back to visit, I woke up worried about my mom because of a dream and felt a hand caress my face.  It didn't freak me out, it actually calmed me down.
Leslie and I have decided that I'm a freak and she's awesome about this whole situation. Leading me to talk about all of the awesome ghost hunting shows on television. I will not be discussing Ghost Whisperer or Medium because they're not "reality" shows. Plus I really like Ghost Whisperer because she wears really fancy clothes all the time and some how in that small town people still don't know that she can talk to ghosts.

So did you know there there are at least 8 shows that I can find that are regular shows about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal research of some sort. This is awesome to me. I love ghost hunting shows because they think that it's really scary to the viewer but honestly it's not. Because everything happens off screen. I can say though when I first started watching Ghost Hunters I really liked it because they did catch things on camera. But then it spiraled out of control. Here's my list and here's what I think about them.

Ghost Hunters:

Okay the only thing that they seem to catch lately is spider and bats. There's a guy on there that is more afraid of spiders and flying then he is of "spirits." And really do they have to explain what all their equipment is EVERY show? I think I know what a flashlight is for fellas, thanks. And they don't actually help the people in my opinion. They just say "yeah it's haunted" or "it's all in your mind." And then they're gone. And I can't stand most of the "characters" on the show. My favorite line so far is "Well should I start provoking the spirits?" "Dude, these people have had a hard enough life, if they don't want to come out and talk with us....they don't ... have to." Pure gold. I wish I could get audio of it or a video clip.  Which leads me to...

Ghost Hunters International:

Okay take the two most annoying people from your cast and give them their own show. Awesome idea! Yeah sure you're rid of them, but we still have to listen to them. I think that it is a good idea to check out England and the rest of "The Old World" and it has a lot of history and with that possible hauntings but no actual video evidence or very little. Just a bunch more "what was that?!" moments. I say "LAME!"

Paranormal State:
I like these guys because unlike GH if there is an actual haunting they don't just say "yup it's haunted, see ya later!" They do ritual cleansing which might work might not, BUT it makes the victim feel better about their house. If I thought my house was haunted I would want it "cleansed" before they left. They do get a lot of video evidence of people being possessed but then you have to ask yourself if it's all an act or not.

Destination Truth:

Is awesome. I love how over the top they are with their maps and explanations. It makes the show. No matter that when they were looking for a killer dog in Egypt and all they came up with was a fox. But I do give them kudos for going into Chernobyl and checking that out. That was pretty impressive.

A Haunting isn't so much a ghost hunting as it is ghost stories. The re-creations are awesome and it always gives me chills. But it seems a little over the top at times.

Ghost Adventures:

is where it spins a little out of control. The guys are WAY over-the-top and too into seeing things and provoking spirits. Which doesn't really lead to anything. Their night vision always just ends up making them creepy. I watched one episode and it was mostly "dudes! and what was that?!" And my favorite was "I just felt something on my leg! Dude! Wanna check it out!!" And he had scratches!! AHHHH!!

And then it all goes wrong with Extreme Ghost Hunters(which I couldn't find a picture for). Holy lord, who gave three rednecks HD cameras with night vision?!? Seriously oh and they're not always in the dark in those places like other shows because you can clearly see all the camera lights. They do rituals that they tell you not to try at home and try to scare you with awesome graphics between cuts. It's bad. Favorite line: "Dudes I've never hunted ghosts on water. I don't know anyone who HAS!!"

Then it gets worse. Last night I found Ghost Lab on the Discovery Channel. Really Mike Rowe? How many shows can you narrate for?! I've recorded it for further study but so far, not so scary, not any ghosts popping up.

So with all these ghost hunting shows on now I want to get into the mix. So here's my pitch.
An all woman group of ghost hunters. And they could all wear pink! Because that's what women do when they get their own shows.
Leslie and I were talking about this the other day. And she told me that if I had a ghost hunting show she would dress as a hobo ghost and jump out at me at every house that I investigated. And I thought how awesome would that be?! The audience would be at first thinking "why is that hobo ghost sippin' on Night Train." And then she would jump up yelling "HOBO GHOST!" and I would say "Oooh Leslie!!" And then from then on every episode the audience would wonder when the hobo ghost would appear.
I have yet another pitch... Little People Ghost Hunters. I'm waiting for E! to get that one. They don't have a show about little people or ghosts yet....I'm emailing them today. (not really)

Two for Wednesday

So I have to do another post today for missing yesterday. And I need to update everyone on situations that I have previously written about.
I went in and had my interview with Wal-Mart and it went good, I was offered a job and will be a part-time temporary employee for up to 120 days. Which will be nice and help us while I'm working on getting done with my Medical Transcription. Which I am happy to say that I've gotten an assignment done, Monday! And waiting for them to get it back to me to re-do because I have to get 80% or better and there were many words that didn't make sense and I couldn't find on any data-base. And if it were in real life I'd be able to go up to the doctor and say "What the heck were you saying?!" So I'm not too worried. I have made my mind up to just not worry about it and get it done and get it in. What is really making me mad though is all the "practice assignments" other then the one that I have to turn in are all under 3 minutes long. BUT the assingment that I have to turn in is 6 minutes long! Thanks! Because it takes longer then 6 minutes to type out because well I'm fast, but not that fast!
So anyway! Sorry for the tangent. I went in yesterday and took my drug test, which I would hope I pass since I haven't done any drugs in years! So I'm pretty much just waiting for the phone call now after they run my stellar background. They're paying me $9.55 an hour which is more then what I made the last time I worked which is nice! And will help, at even 20 hours a week. It will definatly help out our money situation. As long as Jesse continues working.

So there's that.

My dad update. My mom had posted a status update on facebook saying this:

Okay so Mike starts a new thing for the multiple myeloma, it is a thylidomide derivitive called revlimid. The clinic in Bend called, well their financial planner called, not a good sign and not especially if you are a real positive personality like my Mikie. So I have been told to drive the piss out of the new car 'cause it is going back. So who wants to see me? Sign up now!!

So this worried me, so I called to ask what the heck was going on. They found out that dad's meds would cost him. $5,000 a pill. A PILL. And he has to take them once a day! For at least 3 weeks!! Oh and my dad has been on partial disability now for a year because his work has gone down since his first round with his cancer. So he's on Medicare, and Medicare being AWESOME won't, that's right WON'T cover the medication because it is a chemotherapy. Sooo now they're waiting on what my mom's insurance will cover and whatever that won't cover they are trying to get on different programs to help with the payment. My dad needs this so his bones will stop dissolving. This is his life. So I don't want to hear anymore from people saying we don't need health care reform. My mom and dad have health care. My mom pays half her pay check a month to her health insurance. So why doesn't it help them?!?! It makes me sick.

So there you have it. Questions, comments? Good!

Things I love. The short list.

I do a lot of "things that annoy me" so I figured I better take my mom's approach and try to be more positive. Yeah, yeah, pat me on the back, go ahead you know you want to!

  • The number one thing I love is my family. No not Jesse and Oscar family, wait, yes I love them. But I'm talking about my family that I grew up with. They're always ALWAYS there for me. No matter what, we're all so different yet all so much a like. I couldn't live with out any of them in my life.

  • I love the faces that Oscar makes. I wish I had a good camera to take all the face pictures of him I can. Here's a couple: 
I don't really know if he's showing me his boobs or what.

One day I was bored, and I drew on his face.

That's his "cheese" face. Right before he tells me to stop and go away.

This one he does a lot lately. It's not the best version of it but you get the idea.

  • My friends, they rank right up there with my family. Like my family they're pretty much there for anything. And even though I haven't keep up with all of them I know if something happened that was important they would all be there for me.

  • Reading. I could read all day every day. I think this one of my big reasons why I love blogs so much. I like to read everything and anything. Suggest something, send me a book, whatever I'll try it. I have a good imagination and usually a book for me is better then a movie any day.
  • The ocean. I really would love to live by the ocean one day. That's a big dream of mine. I love the sounds and smells of the ocean. 

  • I do love to scrapbook but I have to do it in spurts because my creativity is very short lived. And now that I don't have enough room I don't know how much I'll be able to do. 

  • I have loved all animals since the time I was little, I even held field mice and garden snakes when I was younger. I have always LOVED cheetahs. And I don't think I've put pictures of my tattoo of my cheetah up on this blog so here's a couple pictures. The cheetah is an old tattoo I got it when I was 22 I believe, and it is "photo real" so that's why its light, oh and because my skin sucks in ink like crazy. The rest of it just got done last year in September. It's already faded and not quite finished yet. We didn't have the money to finish it. 

So there's my list, well what I can think of at the moment.

Stolen Idea...

Okay so I was wondering around through twitter and landed on a blogger http://onesmarmymama.blogspot.com and read her blog and liked it and she had a post about her celebrity crushes. And I'm SURE this has been done before but I hadn't seen it yet. So I asked her if I could steal the idea because I need more ideas for postings. And before I let her answer I did it.

Here is my top 5 celebrity crushes...we'll start with male because I likes the mens. And maybe I'll move on to women because there are a couple out there that I would switch teams for...

2. Jason Statham. Okay I loved him since Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. And then I loved him even more when I saw the muscles. mmm I might be drooling a bit.

3. Denzel Washington-Dudes. I LOVE Denzel. I would marry Denzel. I would walk away from my life as it is right now for Denzel. 

4. Chris Farley. Just to show that I'm not completely shallow. I will admit to liking the big boys. Chris Farley is my hands down all time favorite comedian. I honestly cried when I found out he died. I wanted to meet him and tell him I loved him so bad. I swear to god.

5. Ryan Reynolds ahh the pretty boy toy. His abs, I could live in the ridges. *shudders*

So I know this list is mostly very stereotypical but hey I think I am pretty shallow so deal with it! And I made it two posts in a row!

The Only Blogger that Didn't Post about Halloween

That's right.
I honestly don't have much to talk about so I don't really know why I'm posting. It's kinda like my twitter today. "I've got nothin'. Just tweeting because I like to annoy"
So lets see...
I am not a huge fan of Halloween. I never liked going trick-or-treating as a kid because I hated going door-to-door for anything. I was a terrible Girl Scout because of this too. I don't like knocking, or cold calling or selling of anything. I also had a hard time dressing up for some reason. Except for Wonder Woman but that was because I thought I was Wonder Woman.
Thankfully this didn't leak onto Oscar who LOVES trick-or-treating. And seemed to always want to get into people's houses. Oh it was a lot of fun saying "NO! You can't go in!" The nice thing is that we went with the old neighbors and the boys were really good at introducing him to every person they met.
I don't really know what I want to blog about but it's not Halloween. I really want to blog about things that annoy me like the way my boyfriend eats. Or people that say the word Hubby. I hate that word. That is my number one reason that I'm never getting married because I know for sure that someone will ask me "how's your hubby" and I will have to punch them in the face.
I also would like to say that Ghost Hunting shows really annoy me. Especially Ghost Adventures. I want to yell at the guy to just "Shut up already!" And if I were a ghost I would scratch at him too. It doesn't quiet him down though. They even made fun of him on The Soup. Which was hilarious, and not so much of a stretch.
I also hate that my Mozilla has this "Getting started button right above the tabs for my other pages so every so often when I try to go back to my first tab I hit the "Getting Started" button and it takes my page to something else. I hate that.

Okay I think I'm calmed down enough to continue on. Or go in another direction.

Switching Directions NOW.

I the other week got tired of our situation with money and got tired of Jesse not wanting to tell me how much his paycheck was and a whole bunch of other things that were bugging me about him and said money situation. I went on line and while on the phone with a friend applied to work at the dreaded Wal-Mart because well there's no where else here that I could think of that would hire me quickly. So they called me in for an interview and well I pretty much kicked ass and took names. So today they're checking my "references" which consists of two people. One of my best friends and a former co-worker/friend. My friend called and said they asked her "Does she have violent tendencies?" and I said "You better have lied because I'll cut you!" hahahaaaa. And so you're pretty much reading a blog by a person who's soon to be employed by the devil.
This might manifest into a blog about my awesome working experience. And oh my mother has high hopes. She is of the mind that I will be owning my own Wal-Mart soon. I had to break it to her that this is a temporary stop gap to help with our finances until I can get a job transcribing.
Or I could be running my own Wal-Mart one day....
