My baby girl turned 15 yesterday!

We took her out to Olive Garden for a nice dinner and got her a bunch of little beauty gifts.

She had a slice of white chocolate raspberry cheesecake as her birthday cake. We even got O.G. to put her 1 and 5 candles on it!

So happy birthday baby! We love you!!

Yup. Still kicking. In fact, I'm kicking it in Vicodin Land. You remember Vicodin Land..... pretty colors, shimmery lights, everything is REALLY funny.... ah Vicodin Land, how I have come to love you. I do, however, have to give a hat tip to Mr.Ondansetron, without whom I would not be enjoying the wonders of Vicodin Land. (The afore mentioned fellow keeps me from puking.)

So yet again, I will leave you with Bill Engvall's "Vicodin Land". Laugh, you know you want too!



That would be me.

Last night my tooth was hurting really bad. It didn't start till after everything was closed (of Course!). I had planned on going to the dentist the next day anyway, so I took some Tylenol PM (4) and went to bed. I got up to tinkle and took 2 more for a total of 6 pills and went back to sleep. I then woke up at 2:30am because it hurt and took 3 more pills and that's where it got... interesting.

My body violently rejected the new pills.


Now, knowing what I know and having taken meds before, I knew if I was vomiting up plain Tylenol something was wrong. I promptly woke up HHH and we took off to the ER where I had to explain to the folks there, "No, I am not trying to hurt myself, I'm just a moron and didn't keep track of what I was taking!" They took 6 vials of blood to go and check my liver function and Tylenol levels and we waited for about 45 minutes.

And waited...
And waited...

And then a guy came in and handed me 4 prescriptions and a form to sign myself out with. No one had come to tell me if I had damaged my liver or what, just here ya go, get out. I asked if I was ok and the guy said "Oh yeah. yeah, you're fine." Gee, uh... thanks?

So anywho, I'm taking it easy today. The ER gave me scripts for an antibiotic, an anti nausea med, motrin, and........


WHAT? I puke at the slightest narcotic, how the hell am I supposed to take Vicodin?!? Then HHH turned to me and said... That's what the Anti Nausea med was for.
So, dear readers, I leave you with Bill Engvall's "Vicodin Land". That's me right now!

My wisdom teeth are moving again. At least they waited till after Thanksgiving to start moving around. I really should get those things pulled, but when?? Now, where's my ibuprofen???

I have lived in the south all my life. In the south, we love our football. I can remember being in school... it was Junior High football on Wednesdays, JV on Thursdays, Varsity on Fridays, College on Saturdays, and NFL on Sundays. The Fall ran like clockwork. Being in the band meant I was always doing something on the weekends and it was awesome! I loved my football. I would cheer with the rest of the crowd. Along the way, I learned that a good sport beats being an ignorant, screaming redneck any day. I learned using racial slurs, homophobic slurs, or any kind of slurs in general just reflects poorly on you and your team.

Having learned all those lessons, it is with great disappointment that I saw many of the folks I follow on Twitter and FB jeering UF during the Gators vs. Seminoles football game. Statements like "Great play Gay-tors!" or "Hahaha... nice try fags." and on and on and on. I left Twitter and FB after the first few jabs, but really.... I expected better. I expected folks who are GROWN UPS to have a little dignity and grace, whether they win or lose. Haven't we all progressed beyond that shit?

I know UF is sucking hind teat this year. Heck, folks have been waiting for Timmy and Urban to take a hike so UF would be vulnerable again, but all programs have their ups and downs. UF is in a down. That's ok. What isn't ok is using hateful slurs that are wrong to cheer on your team.

That's NOT ok.

Just A Few Notes....

#1-For quite a few Christmases, my middle child, Mo, has been asking me for "Tooth Tunes". What is that, you ask? Well, when they first came out, they were tooth brushes that played a popular song for a certain amount of time. The song coincided with just how long one was supposed to brush their teeth thus getting kids to brush for the correct time period and encouraging good dental hygiene while having fun. As you can guess.... they didn't do very well and by the next year the only "Tooth Tunes" left were the crappy ones that didn't sell the year before. Mo has asked for one every year since. (It's been 10 years!) Now imagine my surprise when I was waiting in a cashier line and saw the product pictured above!!! It was a tooth brush that played music, but unfortuantely it only played Justin Bieber music! Mo hates The Biebs. With a purple passion she hates that kid. So when I saw this I took a photo, came home, and told her I found her musical tooth brush! When I showed her the photo she was less than pleased.... oops!

#2-I saw this shit last week. OMG I can't believe someone wasted plastic on this!! I guess I should have been grateful that the rest of the cast wasn't in the display, but REALLY?? Who the hell is gonna put these losers on their tree? Even at the 2/$10 discounted price, I don't see them moving out any time soon. I tweeted the photo and asked, "Think anyone would notice if I moved these to the douche aisle?" and got several tweets back of "DO IT!" Heh heh.....I just may!

#3-And then today I became my kids' hero! I won #INATOR Friday. What's that, you ask? Well, if you have ever watched Phineas & Ferb then you have seen Dr. Doofenshmirtz and any number of his wild #INATORs he comes up with to defeat Perry the Platypus and try to rule the tri state area. I follow the evil @DrDoofenshmirtz, & his minion @NormTheRobot. They are funny, way funny! Just yesterday morning, Doofenshmirtz tweeted "Trample my Walmartians, TRAMPLE!" See? Funny! Every Friday, Dr. Doofenshmirtz has a contest for his Twitter followers where you tweet to him your best idea for an #INATOR and he chooses a winner by the end of the day. Well, I won with the #INATOR idea above! My prize? My tweet favorited by the evil Doctor and a follow from him as well. OMG! I showed my kids when the pling came through on my phone and we all jumped up and down because Hello??? IT'S DR. DOOFENSHMIRTZ!!!!!!! (And no... I'm not 12.) So now my kids think that I'm the coolest mom ever because only a cool mom gets followed by Dr. Doofenshmirtz, right?? RIGHT??

Don't answer that!

I win again! After cooking all day yesterday and the day before, My dinner went off without a hitch! Turkey was done to perfection, ham was tasty, dressing & stuffing were herbed and moist, .... in fact everything tasted lovely except the dinner rolls. They were publix brand and one of the only things I didn't make from scratch.(that just WASN'T gonna happen!) So anyway, it tasted great. The in laws were happy and I have yet again extended my lead as the favorite daughter in law!

I win.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday! Remember to BE THANKFUL!

Where I'm At.

Hey there! Haven't been here in a couple of days, but only because I've been busy getting ready for a full scale assault on Thanksgiving! You know, stuff to do, things to cook, etc, etc, etc....

So anywho, I wrote over here today. It's my first gift guide for the masses with a twist, the twist being I and my warped little mind thought it up! Go give it a look see and buy something interesting for the ones you love.

Monday Bullets!

Photo found here.
  • On Friday morning I tweeted this, "I am NOT making this shit up! "Butt-job gone wrong with fix-a-flat"" with this link to a story out of Miami about a transgendered stripper who was posing as a plastic surgeon and gave a woman a "butt lift" by using super glue, cement, and Fix-a-Flat and charging $700 for the procedure! The patient contracted several infections and has been hospitalized for a month so far. I don't know about you, but the minute the "doctor" pulled out the can of Fix-a-Flat, I'd have lit out of the back of the strip joint faster than a cat with its tail on fire!! Now CNN and other outlets have picked up on the story and ran with it. Heh....
  • The AMA's were on last night and there was little else to oppose them. The Hubs and I watched the performances with the kids and mostly they were ok. Eldest has started to notice that live performances don't sound like radio versions. I mentioned to her that if she was expecting musicians to sound perfect in a live setting, she was going to be disappointed.
  • The part of the AMA's we laughed at the most was LMFAO's finale! Oh! Mah! GAWD!!! I have never laughed so hard in my LIFE!!! They started out with "Party Rock Anthem" and I thought it was a nice touch that they had the Halloween faces lit up all over the stage from this guy's house. Then as they were dancing around even Bieber came out and started dancing! After that they went straight into "I'm Sexy & I Know It" and of course they did the pants ripping off dealy-o! I laughed so. Hard. Lucky for America and anyone else watching, the LMFAO guys were wearing funny print boxer shorts instead of the sparkly banana hammocks like in their video. Then to top it all off, David Hasselhoff.... THE HOFF came out at the end and yes, he ripped off his tear aways too! LOL! I laughed so hard! HHH laughed so hard! The kids (Yes they watched it too!) laughed soooo freaking hard!!!
And that's about it. Not much going on what with prepping for Thanksgiving and all. Now if you all will excuse me, I need to invoke the evil spirit of Martha Stewart so I can get everything done on time!

It's a good thing!!

Weekend Off.

I haven't written a lot this weekend. I have been enjoying my time with HHH. In the fray of derby and kid stuff and his job blowing up because the owners were coming by, we had missed each other. Now that I am in a Dr. enforced vacay from derby and HHH's job has settled a bit, we are spending some quality time together. I miss quality time w/HHH.

So, I'd like you all to go over to my new gig at Buy-Her. It's a shopping and review site for women. I am getting the opportunity to write with some awesome ladies and you should go check out my new article. In fact, I think you should check out Buy-Her in the next month or so as we approach those shopping holidays that I refuse to mention because it isn't Thanksgiving yet! There are going to be gift guides from several points of view, Product tests, and all sorts of fun! Put it in your favorites, because you will surely need it!

And now, my snugly husband calls. :)

New Gigs.

So I garnered a writing gig. It's for the website called Buy Her. It's a site for women about products we might use. One of the best things about it is it isn't "mommy" centered! I started writing for them last year, but spit out only 2 posts before I had life smack me in the chops and had to pull back. This year I am fully committed to 2+ posts a month. It's not too much, and I have even banged out 4 posts already, the first of which goes live today. I'll link it when it goes up.

To say I'm excited is an understatement! :)

UPDATE: Here is the link to my first article! Go give it a lookie loo! Actually, go look at the whole site! It's totally awesome!!

A 4-Way.

No, not like that. I mean a 4 way stop intersection. I have waxed poetic on people's non-use of their turn signals, their inability to check their blind spot, and douche bag parkers, and now I thought I'd hit on the new nemesis of the 21st century, the 4 way stop.

Now when I was in school taking driver's ed from Mr. McCool, who was once a hard ass FHP patrolman, I had to watch an infomercial from the 1970's on how to navigate a 4 way stop. I learned that 4 way stops were kind of a first come, first serve sort of thing. If you are the first car to arrive, you get to go first. If all four cars arrive at the same time, then drivers are supposed to defer to the driver to the right.(I always wondered if that would result in an endless circle, but I digress...) So this all seems simple, right?


The folks I drive around with here are nuts! And the fact that most of the time I'm driving in school zones just make it worse! These are PARENTS driving this poorly! I have to deal with 3 different 4 way stops and those folks just have no patience. I have almost been t boned, clipped, side swiped, and head on'd at each of those different stops. One guy had the gall to call me a bitch while he jumped 3 other cars to try and plow through the intersection!! I flipped him off and gave him a rather loud vocal salute as well(man, derby has made me vociferous.).

What I want to know is, when did the rules of driving change so much that 4 way stops are no longer being treated with courtesy and are now a frickin' free for all?? Have we sunk so low in the way of courtesy that people only live by the "Every Man For Himself" rule?

How long till I need a side mounted bazooka?

It's Log!

I'll be making a few of these again for the holidays!!! Holler if you want one!

Sunday, November 13, 2011


Sometimes, I just want things to actually BE as happy and nice as it LOOKS from the outside. Norman Rockwell can kiss my ass.


I swear to Jebus, if the Eldest doesn't get her head out of her ass, I'm gonna send her off to boarding school ASAP!!

Sunday Lazy.

Because regular, everyday lazy just won't do.

This is sad, yet funny. Sad because this woman had no one left in her life to mourn her or miss her when she passed away, but funny because my husband works for the same company that took over the apartments where she was found. I can only imagine the horror if it had been HHH and his property manager to walk in on a dead body.... a MUMMIFIED dead body. I can also guess what their cleaning service would have said as well.... OH HELL NO! So yes, I'm probably going to Hell for giggling about this one!

Woman's death reveals how little was known of her life

ST. PETERSBURG — They finally found 78-year-old Joan Greeley in the bedroom.

with porcelain white skin. She refused to let people in her home.

Which may explain the peculiar circumstances of her discovery:

Head propped up against a wall, legs extended under the bed. Her left arm was draped across her chest and her right arm at her side.

She had been there about four months, her skeleton now mostly exposed.


Greeley's home of at least 10 years is on the west side of Fourth Street N, just across the street from Sunken Gardens, down an alley and behind a 6-foot wooden fence. It is a small apartment in the back of a one-story block building.

A man who has lived in her building about five years said he saw her, once, but didn't know her name.

Andy Sasala, who lives in a next door apartment, said for a long time he didn't even know her apartment was there. He thought there were four units, not five.

"She really was as much of a hermit as somebody can be," said Michael Novilla, the managing member of Crescent Lake Apartments, which owns the building. "She really did not want anybody to come inside ever. It's a sad thing for sure."

Neighbors wondered how she supported herself, how she paid the bills, when she shopped for groceries.

And the most obvious question.

Why did it take so long to figure out she died?


Greeley's building is in foreclosure.

Last week, McKinley, Inc, a large apartment management company, took over property management from Crescent Lake Apartments.

On Friday, police said property manager Ronald Toole went out to inspect the units.

Just before 1 p.m., he came to Greeley's apartment at 423 1/2 18th Ave N. He knocked. No response. Key in hand, he opened the door.

A strong smell of death hit him.

He walked into the cluttered apartment and found Greeley laying on her back in the bedroom, police said.

He left and dialed 911.


It's unclear exactly how long she lay there unnoticed.

Police think it was likely about four months. They found a newspaper dated June 26 inside her home. They don't suspect any foul play.

Police have not found any family members.

There's no evidence that there was anyone in her life as far back as 1992, said police spokesman Mike Puetz.

Bill Pellan, director of investigations for the Pinellas-Pasco medical examiner's office, said an autopsy has been conducted but the cause of death is still pending.


Neighbors were saddened by her solitary passing.

"Nobody should have to go that way," said Kathy Seaton, 48. "I wish I would have known."

Les and Sandra Ambush rented out their garage apartment to Greeley about 16 or 17 years ago. They couldn't remember exactly.

"She kept her head down and walked fast and worked hard," Ambush said.

She turned down offers to come and sit and have family dinners except for one Thanksgiving.

"I think she was upset that she didn't have a family or wistful that she lost touch," Ambush said.

They didn't know why she moved out. They lost touch.

"That is sad," Ambush said. "I really feel bad now."

Thank You!

Opinions & Assholes

Everybody's got one. Mine is unpopular. According to this great nation I live in, I'm allowed to have it, but I better shut up if I want to keep my FB & Twitter friends. (Not all of them, but several.)

I value people's opinions. Hearing what others have to say helps me round out my thoughts. I haven't lashed out at anyone. I also haven't risen to anyone's baiting. Seems the latter of those two things is what pissed people off the most.

Sorry folks. It's not a competition.

Tomorrow I'm going to go out to lunch with HHH to Applebee's to enjoy their "Free Entree for Veteran's", because he and so many others have fought for my right to have MY OPINION, no matter how many folks disagree, un friend, or hate on me for it!

Tuesday sucked ass, in my humble opinion. Losing Joe & Heavy D? Fuck you midweek. Fuck you very much!

In Egypt, when someone was mummified they had a red hot, sharpened poker rammed up their nose, their brains scrambled up till it's a gooey jelly like mush, then rolled to the side so it all dripped out into sacred jars.

I feel like someone is doing that to my right side of my head.

Ow ow ow, ow owowowow!


So as you all know, Friday my son was given a candy that has been recalled by the FDA back in 2001-2002. I went back to the school to tell the office staff and avert a possible disaster. I was treated with less that courtesy even as I was showing the school officials the FDA website that backed up my statements.

Now, good people, why was this? Why did they not take me seriously? Why did I get shushed?? I went over and over and over the moments in my mind. I spoke clearly. I was calm. I didn't demand anything. I backed up my statements with proof from the Federal Food and Drug Administration. I was treated with disdain then summarily dismissed. Then, as I was brushing my teeth yesterday and I looked in the mirror, it hit me.

My appearance.

We are living in an upscale neighborhood. Valrico is pretty well to do out here. There are big houses, very few of them up for sale or foreclosure, and upscale shops and restaurants everywhere! Think Stepford Wives, but multiply the number of people and shrink the houses a little. I figured out at Junior's Open House we didn't fit in. Add to that my hair is even crazier than it was back then and I think I was dismissed that day due to my looks. Isn't that a hoot? In an educational system that stresses the teachings that everyone is equal and no one should be mistreated because of who they are or how they look, that is just hypocritical. Sigh....

Wouldn't you listen to that woman up there in the photo? (Without the makeup though!)

Last night did not end well. Not because I didn't get any, {I did ;)}, and not because of any injury or anything else unexpected....

It was the spiders!

Spiders and I have a tenuous relationship at best. I liked the beady eyed devils up until I was 11. One night, a wolf spider as large as my father's hand had the distinct misfortune of falling off the ceiling onto my bare cheek as I was sleeping. The ensuing panic attack was a sight to behold, or so my family tells me when the story is recounted. Apparently doing the freak out dance in Holly Hobby pajamas is extremely entertaining to others, not so much to me. Anyway, I haven't liked the bastards ever since. Funny how one incident with a bad outcome can ruin you for life!! So, on to last night.

I was watching some TV in bed, finishing up my post about the killer candy my son was given at school and such when I felt the call of nature. As I was tossing back the covers from my legs I see this LARGE spindly shape fly off my blanket! It was a HUGE spider! My scream woke up HHH who was sleeping beside me. He asked me what was up and all I could produce was "KILLITKILLITKILLIT!!" So, HHH smothers the arachnid with a towel into several pieces and I start to breathe a little more easily. I sigh, thank my hubby for saving me, apologize to him for waking him up, and say, "I really have to go to the bathroom now. Damn spider almost made me wet my pants!"

I shouldn't have tempted the spirits. They like to play tricks on us mortals!

I take two steps into the bathroom {The same bathroom I normally use in the middle of the night with the lights off} and when I flip on the light what's waiting for me? ANOTHER FUCKING SPIDER, ONLY BIGGER THAN THE LAST ONE!" The little bastard is, I kid you not, WAVING one of his legs at me as if to say "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you kill my spider friend. Prepare to die!" I scream, yet again, for HHH to come KILLITKILLITKILLIT!!! He smashes that one too.

At that point, I'm not gonna lie, my pants may have been a bit moist with tinkle. I'm not proud. Those bastards scare the living bejeezus out of me.

I turned the bathroom light on every time I used it last night.

Fucking Spiders.

I'll Have My Candy With A Side Of Asphyxiation.

See this? That right there is a candy my son received from school today. Looks interesting, eh? It's a candy sold mostly in Hispanic and Asian countries. When those folks came over to the USA, they brought this tasty goody with them.

It's not very big. It's described as, "about the size of a single serve coffee creamer." Junior's class was reading a book that was set in China, and this celebration was the culmination of finishing that book. The teacher ordered Chinese food for the class, they played games from China, and they got swag bags filled with Chinese goodies. This little candy was among the treats.

Why am I concerned that my son was given this candy? Because the FDA in 2002 deemed these candies to be a major choking hazard! In a recall issued by the Food and Drug Administration, these candies were implicated in the confirmed choking deaths of 6 children, with others still being investigated. It seems when children tear off the lid and start to suck the candy out of it's plastic cup, the candy can pop out suddenly and get sucked down the throat, closing off the air way. The candy proved impossible to remove by medical professionals because the jelly was rigid and didn't dissolve like normal jellies or jello. States started seizing the shipments of candy and forbid their import. FDA also asked people to turn in markets & shops who still sell it.

I went back to Junior's school to warn the office about the candy. Because the children received it from school, if something bad happened, the school could be held liable! I was more worried about kids dying. You'd have thought I was a crazy homeless cat lady babbling nonsense on the street corner! Not only did they not really care about what I was saying, they didn't even look at the FDA website I had pulled up on my smart phone! AUGH!! And when I was reading the warning off, one of the office ladies actually SHUSHED ME when another parent entered the office!

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!!

When Junior's teacher just happened up to the office at that exact moment, I explained to her about the candy, why it was bad, and what they should possibly do about it(ie- call the parents!), she just stared at me stupidly and said, "But one of the class moms bought it at the market! It has to be OK??" Uh, no lady. The US government is still seizing shipments of this candy monthly, and that's when it's labeled correctly! I was flabbergasted! They weren't going to do a damn thing! Even Eldest couldn't believe what happened and she said, "Oh no! Uh-uh! You don't shush my mom!". I giggle thinking about it.

So, good people.... what should I do? Let it ride and be happy knowing my kid is OK and won't be consuming the dangerous candy, or should I push the issue and go to the principal?

I'm Stupid.

  • I f-ed up my right arm playing roller derby.
  • Was told by a medical professional that i did some median damage.
  • Was told by the same professional to take two weeks to rest it.
  • Rest apparently means not doing anything.
  • I can't "not" do anything. I'm a mom.
  • No one is really helping me "not" do anything.
  • I have been cleaning the house after Halloween.
  • I also bought some color changing bathroom cleaner Thursday.
  • I cleaned the shit outta our bathroom.
  • While picking up the kids it felt like someone shocked my elbow w/a cattle prod.
  • I can swear pretty good when I'm surprised by pain!
  • I'm now worshiping at the alter of the Almighty Tylenol.
  • I'm apparently really hard headed when told to rest.
So dear friends, I guess aside from driving back and forth to school, I'm gonna have to slack a little. Now if I could only DO that!??!

Teens Will Be The Death Of Me!

OK. On Sunday, HHH and I discovered the Eldest had secretly made herself a facebook page. Why is this a big deal, you ask? Well, after having several discussions about it, we decided to limit FB to nothing under 18. Yes this is harsh, but when you look at it, cyber bullying on social sites has gone up radically since the big crack down in schools on physical bullying. I didn't want that happening to my kids. At one point though, I did offer her a choice of either a Facebook I'd monitor closely, or a bikini for summer swimming..... she chose the bikini. So imagine our disappointment when we found Eldest had gone behind our backs and made a FB anyway. Sigh....

So, as any parent worth their salt will do, I grounded Eldest from the internet. No blog, no phone, no computer unless directly related to her homework. Even after having done all that, I still caught her on her Tumblr while she was at school. The above photo shows what I left her as a warning. I was really hurt & pissed off. Heck, when she pointed out that all her friends had a FB, I said "Just blame it on your mean old mom not allowing you to have one!" There... problem solved. Apparently not.

Then yesterday, as if to prove my point, I saw THIS! A 17 year old girl HUNG HERSELF in the bathroom at the high school Eldest would have attended if we hadn't moved in April. A couple of students found the girl before she perished, but the poor thing is in the hospital in critical condition with almost no hope of being a normal, fun loving kid ever again. She'll most likely be a vegetable for the rest of her life. So far police haven't given any reasons for the attempted suicide, but I can bet when they do, it will have to do with bullying, both cyber and real life.

Is it so wrong of me that I don't want that to happen to my beautiful daughter?

UPDATE: Police are investigating claims of bullying, both on and off line as the cause of the girls attempted suicide. I saw that coming a mile away.

SECOND UPDATE: The poor girl died this morning.

That's how long Kim K. was married to her hubby Kris before filing for divorce. And yeah sure, other Hollywood folks have had it worse.

Zellweger/Chesney- 4 Months
Pam Anderson/Rick Solomon- 2 Months
Eddie Murphy/Tracy Edmonds-2 Weeks
and the best....

Jason Alexander/Britney Spears- 54 HOURS!

These wonderful examples of fidelity, trust, and til death do us part are so awesome. They make me want to throw up actually. I'm going on 11 years with HHH. I had 7 into the one with jerkface ex husband. Yet through all of this, there's just one thing I DO NOT understand.....

How in the hell are these people preserving the sanctity of marriage, yet two people of the same sex, who love each other and are completely committed to each other aren't allowed to marry.


I shake my head in silent, mortified, disgust.
