This is cute, video from London. The most fun I ever had commuting on a train was flirting with this really cute Swiss guy while he practiced his English en route to Zurich every morning. He and his girlfriend would read the words and I would OF COURSE correct him! :) I thought I could win him away from his woman with my speakin' skillz... never happened. My career as a homewrecker ended :) Although it was fun because by the time we boarded the train was full, and we had to all stand.. like cattle.. against each other :) ..giggle.. I didn't MEAN to knock his woman to the ground! The train rocked, sheesh! Don't judge!

Technology you pee on??

I was sitting here typing my response to MrJay, and there was a commercial on. I was tuning it out until it started toting whatever it was as the greatest piece of technology... that you will ever pee on?? OK. Icky, but it at least caught my attention :) It was for the Clear Blue Easy pregnancy test :) When I glanced up there was a stream of.. um.. liquid.. landing on the test strip. LOL

Yes. The world is coming to an end.

I am sure that everyone has it marked on their calendar, but just incase, I turn 40 on February 9th! Yes, it's true. Every year I ask for my XKE, and have yet to receive it. I'm not sure where the miscommunication is? I couldn't be more clear?!?! If I don't get it I'm gonna be horribly angry. We don't want that, do we?

I'm OK with it though. I've been saying for the last year that I'm 40, so I really feel like I'm turning 41. I think I'll be just fine. As long as I get my JAG!

I'm feeling disappointed in people lately. Has really been eating at me, so I really think I need to write about it. It's the reason I started this stinkin' blog anyway, to write about whatever it is that is bouncing around in my skull. Maybe it's Winter, just being cranky locked indoors. Maybe it's because I become neurotic when MrNV leaves town, he just returned today. Who knows.

I'm slightly upset with my sister, she went out to eat with my dad and brother today. They went to lunch. She, again, didn't invite me. Even got an email from my brother this morning that they were going, he needed some information from me. But no, "Hey, come along!". I'm really not a miserable bitch to be around. Not sure why I'm always getting shafted. My dad did call this morning, I missed it because I forgot my cell. So, he's safe :) He also brought me a box of pastries (a bit shaken, but still great!), so he's set for the year. Maybe he appreciates that his youngest kid and biggest mistake is actually the one that has invited him to move in. None of my other shitastic siblings that have no children. So. I'm just disappointed. But, nothing new. I couldn't go anyway, so whatever. Oh, and I was watching a small video from Christmas. She had one of those paper cracker things, you pull each end with someone else? And prizes fall out? So she was doing it with Monkey, and when the prize fell out she took it. Immediately saying, "For me!" It was a miniature screwdriver set. And I noticed his jilted look in the video. She was all, "Here, let's do this and you'll get a prize..." and immediately took it. Her husband caught it, and gave him some plastic watch from one of the other's. It's not the point that he needed it. It's that it is a kids cracker and the fun of popping it for the prize... it's for freakin' kids!

I think my biggest disappointment belongs to a close friend. You know, there are people in your life that just don't have the best luck. Or just don't always make the right decisions, or what looks like the right decision turns to shit. It happens. I'm sure for years people felt MrNV and I were those people while we tried to get our business started. However, there is a difference... we depended only on our family in times of need.

This particular friend sort of started our downhill slide some time ago. She used to work for us. For almost a year or two I didn't hear from her, things were going just peachy. Then, the calls. Husband is a douche, life sucks.. no money. So I offered her work. She didn't have a car. So I drove all the way to her home, about 30 minutes.. picked her up and brought her to work. And would take her home. Yup. Never once asked for a penny in gas.. what was the point? I don't know if she ever made me take any, but I doubt it. Eventually things worked out and she moved closer to us and could drive herself. When I offered her the job, it was until she found something better. But she liked it, and we liked her working for us. We're a small company, nothing huge. She got to work at my dad's place, and he would entertain her and feed her at times. Seemed everything was fine. We then bought our home and moved the work here. One day I picked up the phone and she was talking to her husband. And he asked something along the lines of "How is it going?".. to which she replied something like she is.. as usual.. doing all the work and we're making all the money. I wanted to scream. Seriously. Like we make millions or something. I can't even begin to tell you what my husband went through to perfect what we do. It was easy work. She could work basically whatever hours she wanted, take off whatever days she wanted. Cable TV. Wear whatever you want. Simple. And she assumed we were making tons, and just mistreating her in the pits. I blew it off, never said anything. But it has always bothered me. I wonder if she understand what it takes to run a business? Mainly, for her, the money it takes? All of the product we have to buy. The taxes we pay. I'm not even going to get into it here, you get the idea. But, we were greedy assholes. Finally she got a different job, they offered benefits and all that.. good. That was the plan anyway. .. fast forward .. A while back her electricity was shut off.. she shows up at my house without any notice, I was talking with my dad in the office. Drama drama.. wanted to use my phone and went downstairs. When she came up she went on about how it was shut off, and she needed $300 something to get it reconnected. I've given her money in the past. I wasn't in the mood to just cough it up. So I offered her $100, told her she could just work some odd hours here and there to pay me back. Fine. But then she told me her boyfriend's parents had sent them a $200 check, she would sign it over to me if I would give her the $200 cash. I figured, OK. She didn't have it on her... so she was going to get it to me later. I told her whenever, the weather wasn't too great. She then went on about how she had no gas, so I just gave her $328 so that hopefully she would honestly just go and handle the situation. Of course a couple weeks went by, excuses. I sent her an email that MrNV was getting mad at ME because she wasn't paying me the $200.. and she told me she didn't have it. Additional excuses.. I wasn't getting it. Whatever. But fast forward to this week, because I'm at my final straw.

My father is diabetic. He's also retired, on social security. He has one of those plans where he gets his meds cheaper than most. However, for part of the year he pays full price, then later he gets them cheap. However that works out. He told friend's boyfriend ONCE that he could give him a few vials .. because he needed it as he had no insurance. Free. Normally $80 per vial. So she called me on Sunday,
"Is your dad there?"
"No? He's coming over after the game, why?"
"Well, we're going to come over to pick up the stuff."
"Stuff? What stuff?"
"Your dad is giving us 2 vials of his medication."
"You already asked him?"
"Yeah, I talked to him. I'm giving him $25 for it."

So I called my dad after I got off the phone.
"She called you and asked you for your medications AGAIN??"
"Oh.... yeah. She called me yesterday."
"YESTERDAY? Dad, I am SO sorry that MY friends are calling YOU and asking for favors! That is so out of control!"
"It's OK. I'm a big boy. I can say no."
"No you can't, I know how you are. And it was out of line. I am so sorry! Is she paying you??"
"No. Friday."
"Oh, dad. So now she owes you too?"
"It's OK. They can work it off if they don't have the money."
"Well, THAT isn't the point. How do you think she would feel if I called HER dad and asked HIM for money or favors?"
"Yeah. Well."
"I'm sorry dad. I'll see you when you get here."

And that was my day. My dad wasn't upset, but I'm pissed. I didn't even know what to say to her when she arrived. We chatted. But, of course... as usual.. she had to 'run to the grocery store'. She never hangs out any longer than she has to. She told me she plans to pay me $25 per week until she has paid me back, but we'll see. That isn't even what has me pissed. It's enough that MrNV is annoyed with me for loaning her money.. more than once. But now if she doesn't pay my dad, it is going to be MY friend that didn't pay. Which I know he isn't going to even mention to me, but I just feel bad now that it's an issue.

So I'm angry. She will probably read my blog, and will find out. Or not. I don't care anymore. I'm getting old and my patience with people is just so quickly fizzling out. There is such a long history, and I'm bored with it. You just don't call the elderly parents of your friends and ask them favors. It's wrong. I tell you what though, she will know for certain that I'm pissed if she doesn't pay my dad this weekend.

Tormenting the k-neighbor :)

So, as I have mentioned before, I have a neighbor ... I refer to him as Squirrel Killer. Haven't noticed him shooting squirrels lately, but it's cold. As he only ever wears a white undershirt and shorts.. I assume it's just too cold for him to be outside playing with this gun. But I bought these two cards a week ago, and have been chuckling since :) They are Valentine's Day cards. I love the one where he is holding the rose, it's just so doggone cute! That one says 'I'm just nuts about you!' inside. And the other has a candy heart that says 'Love You'. Bwahaha. I thought I would sign it 'The Squirrels'.... any better ideas? I'll probably send them about a week apart.

Ocean Men: Extreme Dive

Wowie! So my new love is my new Sony, and I have discovered MOJOtv in HDTV. Wow. This channel is the most amazing, I can't watch anything else :) I used to turn the TV on just for background noise while I work :) Pfft :) I just wanna lick the screen now, it's so clear!

So I just watched this show about freediving. One of the divers in the show was just amazingly beautiful. You know, too pretty and perfect that you just want to watch from afar and appreciate. Wow! His name is Umberto Pelizzari. You can visit his website HERE. The film they created is just amazing, and the amount of time he can spend under water with just one breath is mind boggling. At one point he popped out of some rocks, and dolphins appeared! It was so beautiful. If you get the chance, you should really watch this documentary. It was really beautiful. In another scene they showed him standing on the 60th floor of a building, and that this was how far down he has to swim... and then back up. He doesn't use a cable to go down or balloon back up like other divers. QUITE trippy :) I personally could never do it, I have a fear of deep water. Oh.. and I'm too buoyant.. bwahahah! It would take me 45 minutes and every ounce of energy I have just to get down 3 feet.. aaahahahahh!! Ehem.

Terrible 2's my ass.

Where did my sweet little kid go? Man. For the last five days I've been trying to help him with some stupid assignment due today. Super easy, write a stupid letter to your teacher talking about Christmas Break and what all went on. No big deal. At all. Every evening we sit and go over the rought draft, he's good for about 20 minutes then he starts blocking me out. Rolling his eyes at me. Throwing a tantrum. I'm borderline psychotic at this point. It was due today and it isn't finished. He did the rough draft. Short of writing it for him, it was done. Lastnight he was a complete madman, so I sent him to bed at 7:00. My entire night ruined, because I just hate arguing. Makes me insane. So I woke him up early this morning, giving him an extra hour to get ready so that he could take the time to finish what he wrote. Nope. He was in a perfect mood up until that moment.. then insanity. So I'm done. He's just going to have to take an incomplete, because I've had it. I'm not going to sit here and cry anymore because my kid is driving me to the point I want to beat him senseless.

I was calm. Explained it all rationally and just let him do his thing. Simply copy his rough draft.. he couldn't do it. So, whatever. Don't lecture me on how to raise my child or what a bad job I'm doing. I'm just venting. Today is not the day for lectures.

Holy cow.

I am SO getting a shirt that says I'm a 'SPECTATOR'! What does he mean when he says, "You're either in.. or you're out!" Seriously? That's concerning. He wants to, "...get them outta there!"

To view Mr.CrazyCruise, please click HERE. Holy cow.

OH, and I checked out THIS page. ..giggle.. The tests they go through. L10 2D List1 is my favorite, I think I've been implanted with sexual pictures :) Bwahaha... WHAT?? And no, my parents didn't love me. Gosh, maybe this cult IS for me?? On another sheet it even asks if you have dismembered someone, or seen someone dismembered? WHAT?? Call 911 man! Bwahaha, I can't stop reading. Some of my other favorite questions:

129. Has anyone cast a spell over you?
141. Do you like flowers? - this comes in at the bottom of a whole list of psychotic questions.
44. Did anyone run a can't have on you? - A what??

L10 Omissions is where they get the detailed questions. You know, stuff they can blackmail you with :) I wish I were a fly... I wish I were a fly...

I am totally going to send this questionnaire out as a meme :)

I'm watching you..

Yeah, I was goofing around with my macro. I found some cool photos on Flickr that people had taken of their eyes, and wanted to give it a whirl. I gaussed it a bit to get red of all the REDDD. Just wanted to see the colors. Ever since I was a kid I had fun looking in the mirror up close.. opening and closing my eye. Watching the colors burst and shrink over and over :) Simple minds are easily amused.

So I get my new free TV. Yes, free :) Because there are perks in being a brass pole inspector, other than free lap dances. So MrNV allowed me to put it in the office :) It is a 40" flatscreen Sony Bravia. And I am in love. We have HDTV in the living room, but not a nifty flatscreen :) And I believe it's only 32" or 38" or something. So I upgraded my cable box in here, and adore the HDTV channels! I want MORE! I can't even watch the normal channels now.. eew! And it has that recording thingy so I can record shows I miss. And it remembers... so that after I remember what I forgot.. it's in the little list box so I can watch it! YES! I only record Conan actually, because I really like him and he's always on after I go to bed. Cuz I'm old. And senile.

The family did great at Christmas. I actually saw my bitch sister that I haven't talked to much for the last few years. Now she's calling and sending me emails like we're friends again. Yes, I ignore them :) Then I pull out the 6 page letter again she cc'd to the entire family on what assholes we are. Me: the cold hearted bitch. I'll have to post the letter someday, it's actually sort of amusing. My dad went straight to his lawyer with a copy of the letter. So, when he passes away it will be tragic.. yet fun :) I sure hope there is a video! I'll put it on Youtube for y'all!

Speaking of, still working on getting him moved in. I had hoped to get him here by December, didn't pan out. I empty out the room to get ready, and MrNV puts more shit back into it. It's like the black hole of stuff. It's gonna suck for Dad when he's in there, cuz he'll vanish under all the useless things we accumulate.
I think I'm allergic to peanuts. Or, peanits as MrNV calls them. Thank God it's not chocolate! But my 'allergies' have been doing good, but kicking in off an on. Yesterday I bought a jar of dry roasted peanuts and munched on them lastnight. I was hacking up a lung by the time I went to bed. Wheezing for hours. And smart child says, "You're allergic to nuts, mom.". Wuhhh? And of course, today I feel fine. I've always loved nuts, they're the perfect snack food. And I think MrNV has mentioned I'm possibly allergic before. But I didn't think about it so much before. Or maybe I knew and keep forgetting?!?! Over the holidays I was munching on them too.. and would randomly have bad 'allergy' attacks and would curse the outdoors. Might not be it at all! I tell ya... your body sure falls apart as you get older.

OH! And I took Monkey to Cracker Barrel lastnight for dinner. They had a stand of Valentine's cards, and I found the PERFECT card to send to my neighbor Mr. Squirrel Killer! Bwahhaha! I will scan it and post it later. There are 2 actually. I'm going to send them as being 'From The Squirrels'. Bwahahaha! Maybe I should put 'The Woods' as the return address? I'll post the info later and y'all can give me smartass ideas :)

Happy New Year Bitches!!! XOXOXO

I'm sorry I am a bad blogger. I'm the biggest slacker in the world. It sucks for me too, cuz when I'm browsing my blog next year I won't know what I was doing around Christmas :) Suffering most likely.

MrNV is in Vegas again, so I'll find some time this week. Should I be concerned that this weekend was the AVN awards?!??! I bet those brass poles were busy this weekend!!! Wheeeee! Maybe he'll get overtime :) He said you can definitely tell the porn stars from the regular hookers in the casinos :) Bwahahaha. I need to shorten that leash :)

Is it also strange that I keep playing 'The Humpty Dance' over and over .. and over... and over.... I need help.

Won the 'ultimate poker player' trophy in Puzzle Pirates :) I'm working hard to master the whole Texas Holdem' thingy by the Kentucky Derby party this year. I want to take everyone's money!!!! Monkey wanted me to upload some photos of us in Puzzle Pirates. I don't know how to screen freeze, so you git what ya git :) Our shack is pretty sad :) But we're matchy-matchy :)
