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.

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.

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 :)
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!!
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. :)

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

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!

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.

"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....

Any stories out there?
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.
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!!!

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 :)
