Welcome Home

Carpets cleaned day after we returned from vacation - $260.00
New Sofa - $760.00

The fact that my brother is still alive because I haven't killed him? - PRICELESS

For 2 days I was so angry I was shaking. I'm finally calm, but not calm enough to explain. But I'm improving. Because I have to just tell myself, "It's only a couch. It's only a couch. ..." However, there is more to the story and I want to scream. I did scream. But I don't think I'm done yet.

Surf's Up

Monkey was QUITE annoyed today when we left the beach, and he had sand in his undies :) Ahahaha! He was REALLY annoyed. It really is beautiful here! We did see some dolphins (I assume they were dolphins??) off shore and even a few jellyfish came up on shore. Eew. MrNV was determined he wasn't getting into the water, but Monkey can be persuasive :) And they were both drowned. Oh well :) K. Off to find some seafood....

Finally Landed..

after much discussion... we finally ended up at some big body of water :) This one :) Yes, we're having fun. Caught some really beautiful scenery on the way. Didn't see any gators, though. YET! Perhaps a shark or something? I'll keep the camera handy. We arrived after midnight, but still had to go and play in the surf. Monkey is giddy. MrNV is snoring.. and Monkey is sitting here listening to the ocean with me. Our hotel is on the beach.. I'm in heaven :) Might not be going home.

I have no idea...

One of those silly online things. But, it made me laugh. Especially since that's one of my ultimate favorite movies!! I love Orson Welles. But I'm not sure how appropriate it is that I would be muttering 'rosebud'?? And Paris Hilton?!? As long as she leaves some beautiful flowers, I'm fine with it. I tried MrNV, and it said he would be missed by Mister Potatohead :) AHAHAaha. ha.

Poor Hasen.

So that I don't forget why Roscoe is in huge trouble.. this is Hasen's eye. He is a bit less active today, I hope he doesn't develop an infection or something. But he is eating and drinking, so that's good. And he is demanding I pet him.. and that's good too. The tube is to cover the stitches. Although I'm not brave enough yet to actually decipher where exactly the stitches are coming from.. and going to...??? They come out Tuesday, and hopefully everything will get back to normal for him. Poor little guy. He's been hanging out on my desk all week.

That's it.. I'm moving..

Want to move to Alaska? They're giving away free land. I love stories like that :) You can read more HERE. Send me a postcard when you get settled in!! And this is their actual website with the details. Hurry, you only have until the 19th!!

Really Unethical... Seriously Funny

OK, I have no idea what I was looking for.. but I found this. And at first, it's really hilarious.. I mean really. But then I feel really bad, because I'm sure the results are very bad. But then I feel all giggly again, because it looks really funny. BUT THEN.. the guilt takes over again... and it goes on and on. It's because I'm half good and half evil. But, my favorite comment on this video: "If the squirrel didn't want to take a ride then it should never have hopped into something so clearly labeled as a "squirrel catapult'." AAAAHAHAH! That's so TRUE!! I'm going to build one now.. and put my neighbor in it! The bad neighbor, not you GND :)

Stories from the Bird Feeder :)

I noticed today that the bird chow was vanishing faster than usual. However, I was gone most of the day, so I wasn't sure why. Well, in watching my Howard Hughes cam... I noticed the feeder was being pulled from view. ?? So I went to check it out.. and found one of the squirrels. YAY :) And it looks like a female.. non? The chickadee was fast to get in there when the squirrel would take a break ... and the brown bird is just put out. His nest is in a woodpecker hole on the opposite side of the camera. He's really not too happy with us for putting in the feeder. I hope the squirrel doesn't go after the bird eggs, or I may have to re-think my no-shooting policy! I took the photos through the window, sorry about the glare. It's funny, as I am typing this I can see him bobbing in and out of view on the camera as he reaches for the feeder. I love my spy camera :) I feel like I'm living one of those National Geographic shows... living with squirrels. The EXCiTEMenTTTTT!!

Special thanks to GND for racking her brain and remembering that it is a Chickadee! And, as a Hasenfeffer update.. he's doing just fine. He doesn't seem to be bothered by the fact that his eye is sewn shut. Personally, I'd have to be in a padded room. He gets the stitches out on Tuesday, and the vet hopes he'll be just fine. The eyeball may possibly pop out and shoot across the room.. he wasn't certain :) AHAHa, no! That's just sick. Chal made me say it. It was still in tact, but he wasn't sure if his vision would be damaged. I'll cross my fingers. Because he sure needs to be able to see Roscoe coming in the future!!

MrNV is such a goof..

I received an email from MrNV lastnight. This was part of it. He's such a nerd. Hotel security was probably on all kinds of alert :)

I tried to walk into the other room in order to check on Alex, but he
wasn't there, and the people in the other room were, well, kind of hostile towards
me (especially the man), after I fluffed their pillows and pulled their
blankets up on them. :) They also said there was, "No chance in hell
that they would ever in a million years have light saber fights with me and to
get the hell out of their room." I think what really caused him to
flip out is when I said good night monkey boy, love you. :)

Shitty Day Update #1

This morning I thought I would let Hasen hang out in the office and run around. He's been trapped in his cage for quite some time. Since there isn't any traffic here today, I thought it would be a great idea. Usually Roscoe is fine with it, he just watches the rabbit wander around. However, rabbit decided to do some fancy jumping and flipping around in the air. Before I knew it, Roscoe jumped on the poor bunny and had him in a head lock in his mouth. I freaked out and pounced the dog.. as poor Hasen was freaking out for his life. He wasn't physically damaged, I don't really think Roscoe meant to chew him up. However, because he struggled he managed to pop his eye out of socket. And I can barely even type that without throwing up. It's not like it's hanging out, but is extended beyond where it is supposed to be. Poor baby bunny. And as Chal could attest, if she were ever around, I can't handle anything eye related. Nothing. When I had to get contacts, it took me over an hour just to get the first lens into my eye.

Anyway. He's at the vet now, thankfully my brother went with me. During the entire vet conversation, as he poked and prodded bunny, I had to keep my hands over my eyes. I couldn't even look at the poor little guy! After about $150 f*****g dollars .. I will be getting back a bunny with an eye sewn shut. I am going to have to be medicated, drunk and unconscious just to look at him until it's better. He's going to PUSH the eye back into it's socket and THEN sew it shut so that it doesn't pop out. THEN, I get to take him back to have the stitches removed. And HOPEFULLY it will look normal again. I just don't know that I'm brave enough to look at a pop-eye bunny for the rest of his little life. Ugh. I'm so pathetic. Poor bunny. He's suffering, and all I can think about is how creeped out I am. I suck. Now I'm going to go and cry some more :(

Anger issues.

It's 7:00am and I'm up. I have been up since 6:00, and so I'm angry. I love that last 1 hour and 45 minutes of sleep... it's important to me! But I can't stop coughing. Not all day coughing, but that... hey, I'm going to sleep so let's cough all fucking night and make Lorraine crazy cough. I get up.. no coughing. Maybe a few times during the day. I'm certain I'm dying. And MrNV is out of town playing with his nerd-herd in Vegas and I'm annoyed. And the Monkey decided to run a fever of 101 yesterday morning.. for no real reason other than to freak me out. Allergies. I think he has learned to control his temperature so that he can stay home and be mean to me all day. And, of course, my dog decided she wanted to make vomit noises.. which is what woke me up to start with. So I had to stumble around in the dark hoping that I wasn't going to step into a pile of something warm and grotesque. I also have a huge zit just above my lip. The last time I had one of these, I think Tense Teacher cursed me with it. I think she must be up to no good again. Actually, I have been breaking out in hives for over a week now. MrNV decided he wanted me to start using fabric softener again, and I had forgotten why we stopped using it before. It's all coming back to me now! In red splotchy hive reminders! So I have basically boiled all of my pillows and sheets.. and it's improving. But I guess there was just one more big statement to be made.. so that I don't forget again.

So. Today I am tired, cranky and hideous. And it's only 7:24am.

Ewok Love

Tonight 'Girl Next Door' brought her puppy down to hang. I was holding him like a bebe, and he fell asleep :) So cute.

We watched American Idol and were all amazed that Sanjaya WAS NOT sent packing? Seriously. He should stop the show and say, "No, I'll leave, he can stay." Wanker.

This is my porn .. Bugatti Veyron

850,000 GPB = 1,643,924.31 USD
I wish I wish I wish I could have one!

My brother watched the vid with me, and at the end the man states that he's certain he'll never go faster in a street car again.. or something like that. Smartass brother, "Well, if we threw you out of a fuckin' plane in a car.. you would go faster!" AHAHAH! OK, that was pretty funny.

But I still adore this car.
It's my material need!

Squirrel Cam

I had a flippin' squirrel on my flippin' squirrel cam today, and nobody was here to enjoy it but ME! And that's OK :) He was so cute though, playing in the sand turtle. Y'all missed it. And I haven't mastered taking photos with my vid camera, so I had to dig out the digi cam. AGG. Anyway. I had a squirrel. I actually see 2 out back today, in the greenway. I'm sure they'll be dead by tomorrow. ..sigh.. Oh, and I also caught a groundhog earlier. I think it's a groundhog. Fat little wobbly creature.

At what point in your life do you aspire to be able to do this? ...sigh... Um, not suited for the chillernz.

Monkey's Lego X Wing Star Fighter

On a happier note, Monkey wanted me to blog his new creation.. his X-Wing Fighter he created from Lego's. It's a Star Wars thang :)

Richard Jeni - Martha Stewart

The truth about Martha Stewart :)


I just read that the comedian Richard Jeni shot himself in his apartment over the weekend. I always enjoyed watching him, that is so sad. He did the funniest Captain Kirk!!! RIP Richard Jeni. XOXO

Saturday, March 10, 2007


The new Chad Vader is out, this is #6. AHAHAHAH! In #5 he quit his job at the grocery store, so this is him out in the world of looking for work. It's a lot like Blu!! "YOU ARE BEATEN!!".. ahahaha! I want to hang out with these guys!

Good Morning Beautiful Day!!!

The weather has finally turned AMAZING.. and it's a beautiful day. Sadly, it's chore/work day, but it's going to be doggone beautiful one! Maybe I'll at least go and get a Route 44 iced tea to make myself feel better :) Oh, and one of those blendy things where they mix orange, strawberry and banana! I'm only just crawling out of bed at 11:00 and I think I'm hungry :)

Had the most bizarre dreams lastnight. I can't remember all of them, but I was a teenager again. That always makes me feel great! But the parts I can remember I don't think were all that PG?? :) Well, not XXX, but just odd. Just before waking up though, I was sitting at my desk and my windows were open. It was dark, but I could see tons of stars. Like when you're out in the country, and they spill down to the horizon there are so many? And there was even an Aurora Borealis hovering around above the woods. It was fantastic. I called MrNV in to look at it, and he's like, "Well, unplug these Christmas lights on the floor and you might see it better."... he did.. and they vanished. I was sad, but not for log. For whatever reason I had a strand of green Christmas lights plugged in under my desk, and they were causing the amazing star display. So, I plugged them back in and it all returned. It really was beautiful. .. then I woke up.. I need to start taking my camera with me during my dreams. And I'm not sure, but was that dream telling me MrNV is a killjoy? :)

Lastnight my father-in-law came over and we took him out to dinner for his birthday. First he gave Monkey his piano lessons.. that's just too doggone cute :) We went to Mimi's and they had pot roast. Monkey had pancakes, sausage and scrambled eggs... and was in heaven. So I tried something new, the pork shank? Basically it's an entire pig leg.. if you want them there are leftovers in the fridge! But man, when I touched it with my fork it just fell apart. Shhhooofft! Soft to the point that I was afraid there might be some new restaurant trick where they pour a special 'SOFTENING LIQUID' on it to make it so .. soft. And if so, then what will it do to my innerds?? It's hard functioning with such a simple mind at times, but I really do pause for these questions :) I also wondered.. what if Elvis Presley had played 'Rocky'? Or how would Phyllis Diller have been in 'Eyes Wide Shut'? It plagues me, really.

So, these were my dates and my food. Of course Monkey removed the shirt half way through dinner to show off his HEROES shirt to Grandpa :) And now I'm off to do some Spring cleaning! I hope anyone that passes through has a magnificent day! It's going to be 63f here, that's 17c for you Cana-diens :)

Oh, now MrNV is bitching at me :) Don't post that picture of me, my eyes are practically closed! Yah, well, that's the best I can do! He never has his eyes open for photos. Freak.

Friday, March 09, 2007


Only if you are super-duper-freaky-cool will you even know what this shirt means :) Monkey is crushed that it won't be on again until the end of April. Crushed I tell ya. How can they do this to children?? ;) He also has one that says 'Save the Cheerleader, save the World!'. Because his parents are nerds, proud nerds :)
Oh, and I have no idea why he put on the mask. I think maybe it has to do with his super hero ability. He keeps telling me he can read my mind.. but is always wrong :)

My AI Fantasy...

Blu got me to thinking about my obsession/love for Pink Floyd today. And I thought... would it not rock if LaKisha were to come out and bust out the vocals in 'The Great Gig In The Sky'? Seriously. I would cry. I just love that... I loved it in concert and I know she would give me goose pimplies. She would blow my mind I'm certain. Maybe Dolittle, but definitely LaKisha!

K. Back to work.

Thursday, March 08, 2007


Not getting ANY work done now! And today was going to be a biiiiig productive day. CHA! Every time I glance up there is something exciting going on in the camera world :)

We had our first bird feeder customer! I had to go to the front door to get a photo, I just can't get one on the TV. And it's funny, there is a sparrow living in the tree.. in the old home of a woodpecker. It's just on the other side of that camera. And he's way put out that there were two cardinals in his neighborhood! AHAHHAH! As I type this, it's jiggling away like crazy. There is some bird hopping around out there, but I just don't see him yet.
OK, now I AM going to get some work done! I mean it!

Why my brother rocks :)

My father had a bunch of surveillance cameras from his restaurant, and my brother is hooking them up around my house. It's kinda fun. I can watch Monkey, and see who is where AND doing what. The one at the front door is my favorite, and today he added a bird feeder! So now I can watch criminals coming and going AND see what Tweety is up to. It's pretty awesome.

The picture is great, but it's impossible to get a photo from a TV screen. But you get the idea.

Blues Traveler?!?!?

OK, I know that rappers tend to get busted with a gun here and there. It's all part of their gangsta way.. or whatever. It's part of their act.. or a way not to get shot. Who knows. But Blues Traveler?!? Seriously now. Are harmonica wielding singers now in THAT much danger? Oh, not only are they a travelling gun show.. but they were travelling at 111mph!!

"A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. Authorities also found a Taser and night vision goggles. The vehicle was seized."

You can read the full story HERE. And in looking for a photo of him, I found this one where he is ENTIRELY too happy about being photographed with Paris and that other drunk but not so drunk anymore and actually looks much better girl. So now I KNOW he's a tool!

And why do I always confuse them with Barenaked Ladies? I love them. And I love 'If I had a million dollars'. AHAHAH! I'd buy you a green dress.. but not a real green dress that's cruel....

For Dawg - off with Antonella and Haley

Dawg is a closet AI watcher. I think he's afraid to post on his blog that he watches it, for fear that his FAN base might feel he is... lame? AHAHHA! So I just want anyone that reads this blog to know... RockDawg LOVES the AI! But at least I have SOMEONE to dish over the performers with, cuz everyone else either Tivo's it then never watches it or is in the closet like Dawg. Rats, did I just out Dawg?

So, I think he and I agree on a lot of these. But here are my thoughts:

Jordin: Was nice, I think she did a great job. I'm still blown away by her age, and how talented she is. She's only 17! So I didn't mind that she didn't dress up, unlike Dawg who was annoyed. I guess he's also a fashion diva?
Sabrina: I kinda liked her version of the En Vogue song. She wasn't the best, but should keep going.
Antonella: I don't even know why she is still on the show. Well, I do, but it's pathetic. She sucks and should vote herself off the show. "I'm different".. yeah, you suck. And Simon wasn't nice to her at all.. which pleased me greatly.
Haley: I was totally with Simon when he said he couldn't even remember her name. I love that man :) And I wasn't familiar with the song at all, so I have no idea if it really sucks or just her version of it made me want to kill puppies.
Stephanie: I still can't get over the idea that she sounds like Beyonce. She's awesome, but the hair really disturbs me. It's like a Fantasia invasion.
LaKisha: I love her. I want her to come and live with me and sing to me every day. And I want her to win.
Gina: I've really tried to like her all along, for some reason she just seems like a genuine person. But her outfit really rubbed me the wrong way. And I'm not familiar with the song. I get that she was trying to bring on the rock, but it eluded me. I no longer feel the love for her and her fishnet glove.
Melinda: Wonderful as usual. She is my second favorite to win should LaKisha decide to drop out and take over the world.

And after all that being said, I completely forgot to vote. I was really going to! And I don't have any idea about the guys, I never watch them. I caught 2 of them Tuesday .. the odd looking 12 year old boy that straightened his hair.. he was crap. And Sundance, but since Rock likes him I'll wait another week to demand he go away :)

Because I'm a copier of copiers..

Blu did it.. then Dawg copied him.. so I copied Dawg... it's like a virus.

Tuesday, March 06, 2007


On MrNV's last trip to Sin City, he picked up this shirt for Monkey. I thought it was funny, so he wore it to school. He enlightened me when he got home, "I got in trouble for wearing this shirt." ?? C'mon now. Doesn't anyone have a sense of humor anymore?? It's not like my 8 year old son is an ACTUAL jail escapee! Sheesh. So he can't wear it anymore. That's it. I'm going to home school so that my son can wear prison shirts, cuss, carry guns and read the bible whenever he wants!! :) Oh, and pinch girls on the butt without being branded a pervert for life. Yee-hawwww!!

Flamethrower Sandwich

AHAHA! OK, this commercial was on earlier and had me laughing. That was funny...

Suggestions from my peeps??

As I have rambled before, I work from home. My office overlooks the woods out back, and my back yard. I used to chuckle watching the squirrels run along the top of our fence posts from one end to the other. But as I also mentioned, my neighbor 2 houses down has taken it upon himself to start shooting the squirrels in his back yard. I have already expressed my annoyance that some asshole would buy a house (moved in about 6 months ago) on the doorstep of the woods.. and then shoot the fucking animals. I don't know the guy, and already I can't stand him. And I don't know what to do to get back at him? Because I no longer have the daily fun of squirrels romping along my fence. It's rare now, and I'm so mad. To the point that I'm seriously thinking JUST TO MAKE A POINT that I should order a crate of squirrels and set them free out there! I'm just pissed. God forbid the foxes come back this year.

Stupid things I notice.

I thought I'd take a moment this morning and catch up on my celeb gossip :) And there was a link for photos of Rachel McAdams in Elle. I'm female, I like stuff like that. But the first two photos on the page were bugging me. Actually, most of them did. She doesn't have many expressions, considering how animated she is in film. But the first two were basically identical. Every girl knows that you can't get your hair to do the same thing once you've changed clothes. It just doesn't work. And other than using Adobe to increase the lighting in her hair, they are the identical head shot. They made the hair longer in one, and filled it in a bit on the other. But I used Adobe to overlay the two photos, and they matched up perfectly. Hence, the 3rd odd looking photo at the beginning of this post. You can see her face matches up identically.. just the shoulders are different and of course she's wearing 2 dresses. But you get the idea.. they used the same face shot in both photos. And so here you have it. The stupid things I notice. Now, back to work.

Embarrassing Moments??

For some reason this just popped into my small brain. When I glanced through TT's meme earlier, she mentioned that she wanted to go to an Opera in a red gown. Flashy diva that she is :) When I lived with my Aunt in Switzerland, she had season tickets to the Opern Haus in Zurich. She would occasionally go with her University friends, or she would take me. I remember we would get all gussied up (no red dress.. sorry TT) and go to dinner. On this particular evening it was actually a pianist performing. I wish I remembered his name, he was amazing. I was trying to be all posh and proper, sitting in the balcony. We were in the front row and he was playing his heart out.. and then stopped. And I started clapping like any respectable rock concert lovin' 16 year old American girl would! However. It was a pause, not the end. And everyone instantly looked at me. I'm not sure how many shades of red I displayed, but I'm sure it was QUITE impressive. My Aunt kept giggling at me the rest of the night. It was VERY embarrassing! And I quickly learned... don't clap until everyone else does! And then keep it at a normal clapping volume when hanging with the posh and proper types :)

Any stories out there?

Holy shyte...

I thought I'd steal a MEME from Tense Teacher, and committed before realizing how long it was. Ugh. This will have to be a draft for a while until my short attention span takes a siesta :)

Have you ever had an argument with a teacher? No. Called a friend a retard once though, and my teacher flipped out. Welcome to PC101.

Can you count in Roman numerals? I can barely count in regular numberals :)

Are you bilingual? I lived in Switzerland for 6 months and attended Oekos Schule for us foreigners. It was either learn, or look like an idiot. My Aunt signed me up for advanced classes because I took German in High School. BWHAHAHAH! Seriously, HS German? Does anyone learn anything other than how much a bag of Haribo Gummi Bears cost? The teacher kept asking my name, and I stood there "HUH?". Fortunately there was this hot American guy that bailed me out :) But, yes, I can (if I must) speak German and French. I prefer to just listen and translate.

Do you know how your car’s engine works? I'm lucky I can even put gas in it. My first car was a Triumph TR7 convertible. My oil light kept coming on, so I just kept on adding oil. Eventually it died, and the mechanic laughed at me. "It's the first time that I have ever seen oil actually frothing!".. of course I had to ask, "Is that bad?" AHAHAH!

Can you program the time on a VCR? Actually, yes. But who even uses a VCR anymore? Well, OK, except to watch those old poor quality home movies OR those old nasty porn videos you refuse to get rid of (CHAL!).

How many email addresses do you have? Well, I have 3 that dump into my main email box. And a hotmail for registering stuff.

Do you own a slinky? Nope.

Do you talk to yourself? If I don't, nobody will.

Do you have a tough time remembering people’s names? Absolutely. Thank God I have a name plate on my desk.

Did you go stag to your Senior Prom? No.

Is any leftover food currently residing in your refrigerator? Residing? Well, for about 1 hour from today. Otherwise, no. I have issues.

Are you high maintenance? Probably. Emotionally. I'm psychotic and get mad at MrNV for everything. Financially, I don't believe so.

How do you want to be proposed to? Again? Do you know something? Don't tell MrNV.

Do you work out regularly? Seriously. People that work out regularly make me nervous.

Do you care about your appearance? That's just a silly question. Doesn't everyone to an extent? Am I obsessive and eat peas and lettuce? No. But do I like to look presentable and smell nice so that people don't run away? Of course.

Describe the person of your dreams: The good dreams or bad dreams?

Do you like to be tan? I went to Puerto Vallarta and had the most amazing tan when I returned. I wish I could look like that all the time. However, I also don't want to look like a leather bag when I'm 50. My older sister tans constantly, and you can tell. So I live in a dark cave and keep all the blinds closed.

If you had your choice of anyone in the world to spend a night with, who would it be? Eddie Izzard. Just because I think he's funnier than shit and I would like to know what he's like when he's not ON. I love him. But I don't want to see him naked :) I don't think?

How many keys are on your key ring? 2. I keep the others elsewhere.

How much money is in your wallet/purse right at this moment? $200. I have fears of being anywhere and my bank card not working. It actually does that at times, I think the strip is bad. And I'll call my bank all freaked out, to find out nothing is wrong. So I keep cash on me so I don't have to run out of the store crying :)

What is your favorite spice or seasoning? Pepper.

What does your name mean? I have no idea, I'm not into that stuff. I know that my parents either named me after a Province in France or a Quiche :)

Do you give your pets holiday presents? No. I saved them from their demise at the shelter, that's gift enough :) They OWE ME! It's no wonder my pets hate me.

When doing up your jeans, do you button then zip? What does this tell you even? Button first. And I put my left sock on first.

How far would you go on the first date? I dunno, depends on where you're taking me? :)

Do you sleep on your side? Stomach? Back? I think my side most of the time. I'm not sure what I do when I'm asleep.

Have you attended a high school reunion yet? How was it? Please. Absolutely not.

Are you ticklish? Where? That is secret.

Would you rather change your past or know your future? Neither. I wouldn't change the past, it could alter where I am today. And I couldn't enjoy life if I knew the future.. if it were bad.

Do you believe in saving yourself for marriage? Well, MrNV was my ONLY. However, we lived together for 7 years and I don't think he would have waited for marriage :)

Would you pick up a hitchhiker? Prolly, when I was younger. But not now. Unless it was someone that clearly broke down and needed help. But not a transient.

Would you consider yourself a worrier? No, MrNV covers that for both of us. Mr Worst Case Scenario man.

Do you notice when your crush/significant other changes something about themselves? Yes. Then I bitch at him for it. :)

Do your first impressions of people usually stick? Depends on what it is. If I think someone is snobbish, usually it's just me. But if I think they look like a pedophile, I really can't have anything to do with them ever :)

What movie(s) can you watch over and over? The Man Who Knew Too Little.. with Bill Murray. Galaxy Quest.. with Tim Allen. A Fish Called Wanda.. with John Cleese. And I'm sure there are others.

Do you like to cook? If I don't have 100 other things that need to be done.

Do plants die in your care? Usually.

What’s one thing you feel you must do in your life before it ends? I would like to visit Egypt and go into the pyramids.

Baby Brother

My baby brother is a chef, but he is more into the good food stuff.. not foofie food stuff. So he and my sister took a class for kicks on using fondant. Of course they both felt the girl teaching the class was lame, and they now plan to take over. They're so demanding :) So baby brother brought by his creation. They experimented using stamps and different techniques, so the cake is a bit busy in my opinion. But it was very cool.
Sometimes I go into shock when I realize he's 10 years older than I am.. and that he looks older. Which means I look older. And he used to be such a player :) I remember one of my neighbors telling me once, "I'm not gay, but if I were I'd want to do your brother." ?? How do you respond to that exactly? My brother isn't gay either, so I think it just was never really in the cards for them?? And how often do words like that come out of a man's mouth.. without there being some actual thought put into it? MrNV has never once said that, or anything close to that. I have always wondered about that guy :) He was married with a son. OK, but I might have said once that if I were gay I'd do Salma Hayek :) So I can't really judge.. but at least my goal was hotter!!
OK then. What was this post about? Oh, right, so here is the cake. My sister made a bright pink one. It was so her, she's such a girly girl :)

NOT what I expected

OK, so I'm not a big reader. I've made it clear. Short attention span. More than 20 words brings pain. So I never read the book 'Bridge to Terabithia'. Was I supposed to? The flashy little commercials made it look like a really fun fantasy-packed flick. Trolls with huge toes, walking trees.. forest creatures and some kingdom. They did NOT advise that the adorable and spunky little actress that you become attached to and want to bring home to be your buddy.. DIES! And just outright dies, not even like you're expecting it. One day she's a live.. next minute.. DEAD. And there are no fantasy creatures really, perhaps 2 minutes of forest creatures. It's just really dark. Mom is clearly suffering from depression. Dad is over worked and angry.. and the family is poor. Never a bright moment for either of those two. Two older sisters that are super glued to the TV, and a baby. There is one younger sister, she is very sweet. But Monkey selected it as his birthday night out with his little buddies. And there I am balling my eyes out. It just sucked. Had I been in the mood for dying children, I would have at least been prepared. So, it's what I get for not being a reader I guess. But I can't imagine why it would be promoted like it's a big children's film? A bit heavy for the kids attracted to the commercials I think. Oh, but I have to add MrNV's observation. In the first 2 minutes really, he was bitching about their diet :) They emphasize that the family is poor and living in a very run-down home. Yet, for breakfast, they're eating Cheerio's and Minute Maid. He was quick to point out that when you're low on cash, you're not buying name brand foods. Which is true! I sure remember when Ramen was a main food group :)

Lastnight we went to see 'The Astronaut Farmer'. We really enjoyed that one. It saved our weekend movie marathon :)

Now I'm watching Harrah's Lucky Break on our local TV. It's the most painful thing. A local casino bar that allows people to compete in karaoke. 80% of them can't sing at all. I can't change the channel, though. I keep hoping that someone will not be drunk or stumbling through the lyrics. ..sigh.. Perhaps one evening I'll live stream it on my cam thingy, because even Monkey is crying in pain :) AAAAAAAAAAHAHAH!!!

Can I just say..

my prayers are with the families with students in that High School in Enterprise, Alabama. It's like a parent's worst nightmare. I can't step away from my desk, I keep hoping that they're going to say all of the students are alright. I think there are 8 missing right now, and I'm so sad. I love tornadoes and chasing them, but only when they're in fields or away from populations.

Hasenfeffer Bunya :)

Evil rabbit stealing my salad again today. He's sitting on my desk, and you're just going to have to get over the chaos. It's a never ending mess. But it is really cute when he cleans his face :) You know you love him.. admit it :)

Any AI predictions?

So far, I have not managed to catch the men singing. I remember to watch HEROES on Monday, then Tuesday I don't care about. Then by Wednesday I remember, "OH! American Idol is on!!" So I caught the ladies on the first night, and Lakisha blew me away! And lastnight I loved Lakisha and Melinda. I really enjoyed Stephanie, but was that a Beyonce song? She sounded just like her. I just don't remember the rest, I'm sorry. I know I read about that Antonella a lot, so I tried to pay attention. She sucked both times. But I especially laughed because the camera angle kept showing her behind. Or was that just me??? It would pan down to show the 3 judges, but her bottom would be in the foreground. And she had a short skirt on, and she was... jiggling about :) Ya know, just pointing out. If the judges respond to her one more time with, "You're very pretty." I'm going to scream. She's not THAT pretty. There is nothing remarkable about her other than there are photos of her all over the net in wet t-shirts.. and possibly in porn videos with her boyfriend. It's what I hear :)

Anyway, I guess we'll see. I just hope I remember to watch :) I love how they say, "You suck, you're out.. now sing." BWAAAAAAAHAHAH! That kills me! I would beat that twerpy guy with my mic and DIVA off the stage!! Bitches :)
