Well, I have to admit I am quite pleased with myself this afternoon. As much as I am usually (9 times out of 10) a lazy piece of shit on my days off, I got a lot done this morning. Well, it feels like I did, anyway. I went to the bank and got quarters (so I can do laundry...that is next on the list), went to WalMart in Hooksett and got some bras as well as a tablecloth and one of those wire basket hanger things that hangs from the ceiling and you put your onions and potatos in. Then I went to Valvoline and got my oil changed and a new rear wiper blade. Then I went to WalMart in Manchester, 'cause the one in Hooksett is a hole (but I was in the neighborhood for the oil, so I figured I'd give it a shot) and didn't have everything I needed. There I got Indie some new dog beds (one for the living room and one for the bedroom), 'cause Jay wants to train her to be a dog who respects the rules instead of our roommate who thinks we're all equals (this means no more Goon Dog on the couch)... Can you imagine that!!?? Ha ha. I love my dog, but I admit with her being my first, I fucked her up kind of like my mom fucked me up, 'cause she didn't quite know what she was doing. She doesn't know she's a dog I don't think, so she doesn't always listen and likes to see what she can get away with. Doesn't respect your space. If I had always laid down the law, I would not be embarking on an Extreme Behavior Makeover at this point. That's what I'm calling it. :o) Anyway...
So now it is 1 o'clock, pouring rain, soaps just came on and I have a shitload of laundry to do. Hope everyone is having a good humpday. As always, even happier if you are actually humping!!

Meh. Long day. And it ain't over. I am feeling generally disenchanted, so I guess it's good that I have all day tomorrow to internalize that fact and rediscover my cheery disposition. Meh again. I actually have to go get my oil changed and pick up a dinner gift certificate I somehow won by filling out a survery mailed to me by the credit union through which I refinanced my car, so that'll be exciting. Meh yet again.
I suppose I will save up whatever other boring riff raff I could have spouted today in order that I might have something with which to bore you tomorrow. (Oh, the suspense! I know.)
Have a lovely evening.

I Have Ample Boobs!*
No doubt about it, I have one hell of a rack
No matter what I wear, I'm a walking boob attack
Other girls might get jealous - and say my boobs are fake
But I smile knowing their boyfriends are mine to take!
*I changed everything from "you/you're/your/yours" to "I/I'm/my/mine."

Yippee. Another layout. I was telling Jay this morning that my layouts are like other peoples' drunken tattoos... The next day I am thinking, "Wow, that is fucking horribly ugly. What was I thinking?!" But I like this one. I was craving something sort of green and sunny, with spring here and all. So here it is. Hope y'like it.
Just got back from getting groceries, which is part of my Sunday ritual of domestic obligations. I have decided not to do laundry though. I'll take care of it Wednesday, which I have off. Now I think I want to go have another cup of coffee and (weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!) vacuum and clean. Yahoo! Yippee! B'ding b'ding b'ding! Browwwwwwwwwwwwww (race car style)!!! Caffeine is a wonderful thing.

Well, here is is, Saturday...half-way through my long weekend. I left work early on Thursday due to a ...can you guess?...sinus issue. No amount of Advil or Sudafed was getting rid of the pain and pressure, so I said "fuck it." Might as well be miserable, dizzy and painful at home. And here I am.
Yeserday I didn't do too much. Went to RiteAid and blew some money I shouldn't have on Cosmo, some facial mask packs (99 cents a piece, and you get to "try it before you buy it"...before you buy a ton of it, anyway), lipgloss and blush. Nothing I really truly needed, but I guess need is quite a subjective term. I mean, 100 heated discussions could be had if I said "No one actually needs cable TV, or needs brand name toilet paper, or needs to drive a brand new car." Our needs are really more our wants. Anyway...off the soapbox I go.
I am wishing I was capable of articulately describing my evening last nite, but alas, it is one of those things that can't be explained. It was just a great nite. I haven't felt as close to Jay as I did last nite in a long time. There were vodka shots, guitar tunes (live), singing, barbecue chicken and corn-on-the-cob, candle light and thongs. (Well, thong, singular, mine.) Mmm mmm good.
Dunno what the plan is for this evening. Possibly goin' out, more likely stayin' in. It is warm out and looks like it's gonna rain, although the weather sites say uh-uh. We picked up a "Green Grass" Yankee Candle at the mall today (one of the two times a year I go there) and am enjoying smelling the fresh cut grass (albeit fake fresh cut grass), while the cars go by outside and the windchimes make their twinkly noises out on the balcony. Spring has sprung.
P.S. What's happening at BSK? Just curious...

Just a tip for anyone who has or may one day have a pet who will inevitably encounter health or medical issues at some point in time...
When you call, explain (briefly) your problem to the receptionist and she may tell you you need to make an appointment and if you do, after that you are supposed to say thank you and hang up. There is NO NEED to continue saying, "Yeah, because..." and describing the size, frequency, color, smell or texture of bowel movements for 10 minutes while all hell breaks loose in the lobby and the well-meaning receptionist is too sweet to tell you to shut the hell up and let her get off the phone. See, you already have the appointment. At this point in time, that is all she can do for you. Explicit details regarding vomit, strange looks your dog gave you, a funny sound his tummy made, what he had for dinner two weeks ago do not change the fact that you need (and already made) an appointment. We do sympathize with your concern, but nonetheless, the lesson is this: Make your appointment, say thank you, and save the poo poo talk for the doctor, in the appointment, when you arrive.

Thanks for all the lovely feedback on this atrocity. It's actually not even close to how I envisioned it. It went a little askew. Anyway, it'll work for now, 'til I get bored and do something else.
I have nothing important to report really. Wicked long day at work. Yesterday I made the best banana bread ever, from scratch. With the KitchenAid my honey got me for Christmas. Man oh man, that has to be my second-favorite electrical appliance. Deduct whatever you want from that... Ha ha ha.
I think it be time for some snuggling. Hope everyone's Monday wasn't too brutal. (They often seem to be.)

Pooh on New Hampshire winters. This was taken five minutes ago. S'pposed to have 10-12 inches by tomorrow morning.

Question: what are the top 3 ways to make yourself feel better when you're down? If you said "have sex," you're right. If you said "eat," you're also right. And if you said "spend money," you're just as guilty as I am. Out of those three, the only one I wish to tell you about is the spending... Went to Best Buy yesterday and got a new computer. That piece of shit eMachine has been saved from the fate I promised it (being tossed off the balcony) only because Jay wants to keep it around for spare parts. So this post is being typed on my new, lovely Compaq Presario S63OONX. I was totally floored by the amount of shit that came pre-installed on it and spent the first hour deleting AOL and other unwelcome junk. Oh, I also thought it was funny that even before I installed the rest of my programs, I did the spyware blocker/deleter thing, and I scanned. Wha'da'ya know? The thing had 5 spy programs on it, straight out of the box. Fuckers. Then I downloaded AIM again, and MSN Messenger... Only to then scan again and pick up 95 more. Didn't realize this was so epedemic. Big brother is truly watching.
I threw together a website for my honey (which is embarassingly lacking in content right now, so be openminded...) for his music. If you wanna, check it out at http://kismetshift.com. I am truly an ameteur at this web shit, so go easy on me.
Lastly, wanted to say thanks for the kind words regarding my last post. Good to know y'all are out there. Hope everyone has a good Sunday and that Monday doesn't kick your ass too hard.

Hello Y'all. It seems I have been slacking with the blogs yet again. What can I tell you? I have been feeling generally discontent with life lately and why blog just to bitch about that? Physically, I have been very shaky and light-headed lately, which I am not sure how to interpret. (I know, go to the doc...) I have also been totally flaking out, forgetting things literally 5 seconds after someone tells me. Can't sleep (and when I finally do fall asleep, I wake up 5 times a nite and sometimes can't go back to sleep due to the fucking jerkoffs next door who snore so loud I can hear it through the wall), also very prone to crying. I think it's stress, but who the hell knows. My sister is really not doing well and I talked to her for the first time in awhile on Sunday. She sounds so scared and fragile. That is not her at all... We used to joke about what a tornado she was, full of piss and vinegar - unstoppable. Now she just sounds broken. Maybe it has just become too real for me. She may never be right again and the pain she is in because of that is crippling to her and me. I mean, how could I not have overwhelming empathy for my own sister? I love her so fucking much. The family drama this whole situation spawned is unfuckingbelievable, and while I removed myself from it as best I could (ie. no contact with my father), the wrath and manipulation he has now directed at my brother is also eating me alive, because I am the one he (brother) calls to talk about it... I am stressed about petty shit at work, worried about money, worried about me and Jay... Everything just feels like shit right now. I have been through way worse than this and I am usually very good at staying positive and keeping sight of the light at the end of the tunnel, but I've lost it this time...

TGIF everyone! I have today off...YAY! So what am I doing? NOTHING! My brother and I may get together later, but other than that, I have absolved myself of all obligations today. Yippee!! Sorry I haven't blogged lately. For some reason, working 4 days in a row (but keep in mind, they are 11-12 hour days) just wipes me out and I avoid everything but sleeping. So here's a whole bunch of crap to rehydrate you with my brain leakage.
So I copied Girl and did this Lover/Girlfriend/Sex/Relationship Style test thingy, and evidently I am "The Maid of Honor - Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMf)". I know it's bullshit (at least in my case) 'cause you know how they offer you "X" amount of multiple choices and thought you might not answer "b" straight through, most likely the bulk of your answers will belong to one preexisting "set" of answers or another, and that's how they give you your answer, based on whichever catagory you pick most? Well, I know for a fact that there was almost no consistency to my answers. Lol. I always blow those things. Oh, well. I guess I am defiant when someone tells me "These are your only choices, what's your answer?" and I would honestly select "none of the above." So don't believe everything you read. I am a Deliberate Gentle Love Master sometimes, and a Raving Horny Sex Lunatic the next. (No, the RHSL is not on the quiz, that was a self-assigned label.) So here's the rest of what it said: "Appreciated for your kindness and envied for all your experience, you are The Maid of Honor. Charismatic, affectionate, and terrific in relationships, you are what many guys would call a "perfect catch"--and you probably have many admirers, each wishing to capture your long-term love. You're careful, extra careful, because the last thing you want is to hurt anyone. Especially some poor boy whose only crime was liking you. We've deduced you're fully capable of a dirty fling, but you do feel that post-coital attachment after hooking up. So, conscientious person that you are, you do your best to reserve physical affection for those you respect...so you can respect yourself. Your biggest negative is the byproduct of your careful nature: indecision. You're just as slow rejecting someone as you are accepting them."
The Friday Five:
1. ...your first grade teacher's name? Mrs. Macon.
2. ...your favorite Saturday morning cartoon? Don't really remember...probably HeMan and Shera or Jem and the Holograms.
3. ...the name of your very first best friend? Kanani Bretschneider. Lol. A mouthful, right? But guess what? Her full name is Beverly Kanani Sunshine Bretschneider. Birthplace Hawaii, Mom Philipino, dad German, daughter...priceless.
4. ...your favorite breakfast cereal? My mom wouldn't buy us the sugar cereal much...but I was partial to Kellogg's Corn Pops. They were good.
5. ...your favorite thing to do after school? Watch Punky Brewster.
I am out of things to bore you with. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
