Yep just what I thought

One response for the last blog?

It's official...I have a fan base of ONE! I don't know wether to be sad or be happy. Now mind you that fan base of one is the greatest fan base ever...but my hopes of maybe having that base exceed maybe the occupancy of a small compact car was completely crushed.

Like I said I am sad. What's even worse is that I tell this person practically everything (exception is bowel movements...urine movements is another story), what the heck else will I have to blog about? Pretty soon that fan base of ONE will become zero....and then I will be sad.

I often wonder who really reads this and cares about my ramblings. Do people really check up on me? Do they stop by to see if I have posted? Do they care?

Its really a bunch of meaningless questions, one's that really do not matter. But they matter to me. Unfortunately I am one of those people who cares a little too much about what people think of me. And it's not about the vanity kinda things, it's whether or not someone likes me and or is mad at me. I can't stand the thought of someone not liking me or being mad at me. It get's under my skin.

So I really do sometimes sit here and wonder who really reads the ramblings that come out of my mouth. Because lets be honest, alot of the time I make no sense. I ramble on and on without a coherent thought.

So I wanna know something about you. Do you check up on me? Are you disappointed when I don't update? What do you like and want to hear more about?

Hugs and love

Having no money blows!

I hate being broke. Its sucks donkey balls.

I have $5.30 to my name. How sad is that? Seriously. I'm trying to scrape some money together to get Chris a pack of cigarettes. And I can't even do that. I feel like the biggest failure ever. I can't even scrape together enough money to do anything. What we have in the cupboards and fridge is it for a week.

I have borrowed money from here until eternity....and I have nothing.

Life blows.

My Baby Turned 1

My baby turned one on the 9th. A whole year old.

Seems like yesterday I brought her home to live with us. Now she is full grown and o so smart. She learns more and more everyday and never ceases to amaze me.

When I come home she is so excited and jumps around with joy. Never is there a day where she isn't happy I am home. And when I leave she cries. Cries and cries at the door from what Chris tells me.

Every night she sleeps at my side. She curls up against me and never moves.

Chris says she is attached to me and definetely mine. She loves him, but he says that with me its completely different. She always has to be around me. No matter where I am she is a few steps behind me.

So my baby Lady is a year old. Still a puppy, but getting so big.

Is this what real mothers feel like? lol

Cordless Jump Rope

I've gotten a couple of questions about this wonderful most excellent invention (note sarcasm and sheer annoyance). I decided to do some sleuthing. Good old google works wonders my friends.

I found an article by the "genius" that invented this contraption.

Here are my favorite quotes:

- "What makes this invention work is the moving weights inside the handles. They simulate the feel of a rope moving, Clancy said. Well, it's only one handle so far because Clancy is waiting for financial backers before building its partner."

Keep on waiting buddy is what I normally would say, but considering you can buy this contraption it only means that some moron had faith that this thing would actually sell. But alas, the moron that partnered with this inventor wasn't so dumb. They banked on the average American buying it. And it worked! Because only in America can you invent shit and someone will buy it and hord it away.

-It's perfect for the clumsy, Clancy said. "If you are still jumping, you're still using your legs as well as your arms, and getting the cardiovascular workout. You just don't have to worry about tripping on the rope."

Ok, seriously? Who after the age of say 7 trips over the rope of a jump rope? Please tell me one person. Come on, in order for this piece of crap to sell we must find several thousands maybe even millions. O but wait, we are a lazy country and we just know that this will get us up off out asses and we won't have to worry about explaining that bruise to the head at the office come Monday morning.

-It is also good for mental institutions and prisons where rope is a suicide risk, said Clancy, who works as a laundry coordinator in a state prison. And low ceiling fans aren't a hazard any more, he said.

Who the hell is using jump ropes under low ceiling fans? And if they are, they deserve the ass kicking they will get with a jump rope weilding a million miles an hour around a room. Hell I would pay money to watch that crap.

-That's right, a jump-rope minus the rope. All that's left is two handles, so you jump over the pretend rope. Or if you are truly lazy, you can pretend to jump over the pretend rope.

Ok, pretend to jump rope? If you need to "pretend" just to pacify the need to say you work out, you need to really get a life. Either that or your a bigger moron than you know. First of all, no one over the age of say 12 jump ropes anymore. If you walk up to someone, weighing 200+ pounds, I can guarantee you that if you tell anyone you are jump roping they will NOT believe you. It's not hard to deduct that a 200+ pound person is not jumping in the air. I have a stomach, I know how it feels, and no way in hell am I jumping around.

Want more info?


People buy this?

I was looking thru this catalog that Chris got in the mail the other day. It's full of very practical things that are reasonably priced that you just never seem to see in the stores. It's full of things seen on TV and other things that just make sense.

Every so often there is something that makes you go, huh? What in the world? People buy this?

So Ladies and....well only ladies read this that I know of. Here is the most random things this catalog had.

First up- Toe Flexers!

Give you stronger, healthier, more beautiful feet in just 10 minutes a day! Long a dancer's secret, now you can benefit from this unique exercise device. Wear the comfy pair while relaxing, watching TV ore even napping - the Achilles tendons are stretched to relieve the discomfort of hammertoes, bunions and other foot maladies. As circulation and flexibility improve, foot pain is lessened. Includes exercise chart.


Um, ok..... HUH? Thats all I have. People really buy this? Please tell me its a joke.

Next up- Penquin Pooper!


Nuff said!

And welcome- Head Stand!


Cause apparently sleeping in bed is way overrated!

And we continue with- Smoking Baby!


A marketing genius must have come up with this one. Bravo moron!

And they just keep coming- Mother Theresa Breath Spray


This can't be for real. Really?

And I leave you with this- Cordless Jumprope


Words can not describe how dumb this really is.

First off I can't believe someone actually invents this stuff. Seriously how do you come up with this dumb stuff. And then if that isn't bad enough, some moron buys it!

Some good news?

Say it isn't so???

How in the world can I have good news? It's just not possible. Ahh but it is.

Yesterday Chris got a letter from the Dept of Economic Security. Now you might be thinking DISABILITY! Nope. UNEMPLOYMENT! Yes, Congress enacted some law that makes people who had unemployment after May 2007 available for 13 more weeks of benefits.

So that means we would get 13 more weeks of benefits. Thats 3 months! That would get us thru the time that disability has to make its decision.

Man o man....

Movies, Movies and More Movies

I was supposed to be all organized and Martha Stewart-ish. But ehh the hell with it. If I was Martha Stewart I would have a posh house, a tv show and be all organized. But alas I am not. Hell I was late to my own birth, and I betcha I will be late to my own funeral. I am an unorganized, late, overweight, boring 20-something-year-old.

I decided to pop in a movie. And suddenly I find myself watching the 4th movie today. I am a movie junkie, but I haven't had time to really watch movies and have an all day movie marathon like the old days. I love all kinds of movies. It doesn't matter the genre. I like them all.

I have engrossed myself in stories of other's lives today hoping to somehow forget mine for the day. So far so good. But every once in awhile I remember the electric bill, the water bill, or the phone bill. It's quite annoying, my brain. I can't turn things off. And yet here I sit watching another, hoping it goes away.

Add worry wart and hopeless overanalyzer to the list of thing's I am.

It's amazing what a few movies will do. It makes you think about what you really are. As you sit there and sink into a movie you become blank and forget about time. And then at the end you start to think, am I like that? Could I be like that?

So while I should be all organized, and as hard as I try, I find I am not. No matter how hard I really try I am not.


I have some amazing friends. Friends I didn't even know I had really. I have always said I don't have many, probally only one to be exact. But then I go out to my mailbox and there are cards from people who care. People who have never met me in real life. I never thought I had so many, but I do. And to think they all live here inside this little box and I talk to them on it.

Its amazing. Its amazing that people who should be there for you are not and people you never expected to are.

So when you think you don't have anyone, take a look around. They really are there. You may have to look hard, but I promise they are.

To my friends, I love you like family. You are truelly awesome.

And to My Hope, you know who you are, your the best! :)

So my Scrabble playing buddy will be gone for a week. I am so sad. She is driving to Wisconsin to see family and drop off her brother's furniture. It's only been a few hours since I said good bye and have a safe trip and I am already bored.

What shall I do for a week? Seriously? If I am this bored already, what will I be like in a week?

I imagine that this blog will have loads more posts. I imagine that I will play alot of solitary online slingo (look it up, its fun). And I imagine I will miss her.

She is such a wonderful soul. And I miss her. :(

Geez I sound like a pathetic old hag. But I have become accustomed to our nightly banter back and forth and the sheer determination to beat her in the game. OOO maybe I should read the dictionary, soak up information, research for the next match? Hmmmm the wheels are spinning...squeeking, but they are spinning. Quite scary if you ask me.

Check list Help

I am going to take full advantage of this three day weekend I am embarking on. Chris and I can not afford to really go anywhere, so I am going to tackle some projects around the house. I plan on at least making us some Huttdog's and then a pasta salad, but pretty much I want to accomplish a few things.

So I am "trying" to be all organized about it. I have a pen and even paper. It's labeled things to do.

So, here is where I need some help. To all you that read this (not sure there is many lol)comment and leave me some good "spring" cleaning or deep cleaning ideas that get's overlooked easily. I already have the change a/c filter, do baseboards, turn mattresses on my list.

So comment away :)
