Snowflake freckles and cooties in my hair...


One follower friend and lover over there ------> WoOt!

It's snowing here. Of course, it's not sticking because it's 37° outside but the kids still got out of school. That's how it is in the South. See a snowflake, close schools. Hyper Boy is sticking his face outside and screaming, 'I got snowflake freckles! I got snowflake freckles!' Mini Me is standing outside the front door watching the snow collect on her hair saying, 'Cooties in my hair! Cooties in my hair!' Our neighbor to the left is standing in his driveway laughing at them both.



It's a good day...



-------------------------------------------------------



TEN things you wish you could say to TEN different people right now:
1. Why do you have to lie about even the trivialest of things?
2. Get out of the house for more things than having your hair done and buying groceries.
3. I'm still upset with you for turning my life upside down 5 years ago.
4. You don't have to take her shit. Stick up for yourself more.
5. If you hurt my friend with your illegal shenanigans, you better be prepared for my wrath. It won't be pretty.
6. Stop it with the fake accent. It makes you look and sound silly.
7. She's still having affairs. She also has a profile on Ashley Madison.
8. Stop telling men your husband is okay with you 'playing around'. He's not. You're a liar. I hate you for hurting him.
9. I know you don't like me. I wish you'd stop pretending to care.
10. I like you a little too much.

NINE things about yourself:
1. A day without sex exercise makes me a grumpy girl.
2. When I go shopping, 95% of the time I come home with a new bra or panties or both. Just try to keep me out of the 'Intimate Apparel' department. I dare you. ;)
3. I curse too much. And I don't censor myself around the kids. I've tried and saying 'shoot' for 'shit' just isn't the same.
4. I was brought up by a Mom who took me to church everytime the door was open. I haven't attended church since I was 18.
5. I blush easily.
6. I cry when I'm mad. That makes people think I'm soft. Big mistake.
7. I want to move to Colorado some day.

8. I love The Man more today than I ever have. We've been through a lot in these 20+ years together. Some things I would love to forget. Most things, I want to remember forever.
9. I don't like guacamole.


EIGHT ways to win your heart:
1. Don't smother me with attention. I know lots of girls like it, but it makes me panic and run.
2. Humor goes a long way. Make me laugh. And laugh with me.
3. Don't over analyze my motives. Ask me if you want/need to know why I did something.
4. Do what you say and say what you do.
5. I'm a big girl. I don't need you to fix something just because I tell you about it. I'll let you know when I need rescued help. 'Kay?
6. When I get quiet and need to be alone, don't take it personally. Give me time to think/lick my wounds/simmer down.
7. I NEED touch. I LOVE touch. Give it to me daily.
8. Most importantly, you HAVE to love music. It's all around me - every day. If you give me the stink eye about my music, you're as good as gone.

SEVEN things that cross your mind a lot:
1. Sex
2. How many calories is that?
3. I've got to get in some cardio today.
4. What would my Mom have done in this situation?
5. I need some new bras/panties!
6. What will TM surprise me with next?
7.
What's for dinner and can I talk TM into taking us out.

SIX things you do before you fall asleep:
1. Sex - most nights.
2. Brush teeth.
3. Clean up.
4. Pee.
5. Kiss TM.
6. Exit the PVR on the computer.

When all's said and done...



Thanksgiving wasn't too bad. I was still smarting a little from MIL changing my plans for me, but let's not get into that again. The food was good, the company was great, and when all's said and done, I have too many things to be thankful for to count.

Hey, even MIL's dressing was good. ;)

Call me crazy, but I got up at 3:30 Friday morning to shop at WalMart. My SIL talked me and Music Girl into going to her local WalMart instead of ours. BIG EFFING mistake. Never again.

We got there around 4:40 and couldn't even get down the aisles to just look around. People were parked at all the bundles and wouldn't budge. And if I tried to get by, they'd give me the stink eye. Geez, people.

The only things I really wanted were the $9 movies - Kung Fu Panda and Alvin and the Chipmunks. I located the latter peeking through the black wrap and decided to camp out with the other bundle grinches. At 5, I heard someone yell from the front "Okay. Go!!" The bundle grinches turned into mad dogs ripping the black wrap off. If I weren't in a state of shock and awe, I'd have video'd it with my digicam.

But I was on a mission too. Apparently, my game plan is different from other people. I stayed calm and hung back and let others do most of the work. Most men will help out a truly desperate female in need. ;)

Yeah, yeah. I played the helpless female. Now, don't be hatin'. I don't like to do it unless I really need to. And in that throng of people, I needed to. I tapped a guy's shoulder and asked, 'Could you please grab me an Alvin and a Kung Fu Panda DVD?'

I did this throughout the store. My haul?
*The movies, plus the 2-pack Ratatouille DVD
*3 light sabers - 1 Sith, 1 Obi, 1 Jedi
*2 Hannah Montana dolls
*Jeans, jeans, and more jeans - Wrangler and L.E.I for $8/each!

*3 hoodies
*Play doh cannister
*Various other clothes

*Yahtzee game

*Digital picture frame
*Various other toys

Want to know what I found out this morning? I could have gotten all this - except the jeans - at my local WalMart today. For the same price. I went there around 6 this morning after work and all the doorbuster prices(usually only Friday 5-11a.m.) were still good. So I picked up a few more things. The jeans were all gone or I would have gotten more of them too.


But no. Never again will I shop Black Friday at my SIL's local WalMart. I'll stick with mine. That is, if I'm ever crazy enough to get out on a BF ever again. And you know I will be. GAH!

And now for something fun...


Saturday 9
1. What was the last pill you took?
Forgot my vitamin today! I took a Sudafed before going to bed lastnight.

2. What time of day do you usually feel most energized?
Wow. This is kind of hard to answer. I feel most energized after exercising - whether it be in the morning, afternoon or evening. Hmmm...

3. Who was the last person you hugged?
Hyper Boy.

4. If you had a restaurant serve you a perfect breakfast, what would it be?
Almost anything I don't have to prepare is good with me. I guess I'll say a stack of 3 banana pancakes, 2 strips of bacon, and ice cold o.j.

5. What did you do on Thursday?
The usual Thanksgiving dance.

6. If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
Financial freedom would be nice. Yeah, not worrying about finances would be VERY nice.

7. What is your favorite TV commercial at the moment?
I skip 'em.

8. Who would you'd be surprised to wake up and find in your bed?
Ummm, just about anybody other than The Man.

9. Who is your favorite 80’s band?
Journey, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Scorpions, Motley Crue, etc...

Oh my aching ass!



Ever have the rug pulled out from under you? Literally or figuratively makes no difference. I had it done to me this past Sunday and my ass still hurts.


MIL was supposed to be going out of state for Thanksgiving, leaving me to do the turkey day dinner. Even though I'm not a big fan of the day to day cooking that I do, I really enjoy making big dinners - especially holiday dinners. So, innocently enough, Sunday afternoon I'm watching the Titans losing against the Jets when the phone rings. I'm in a funky mood as it is since I'm a Titans fan. Go Freak(Kearse)! MIL, in her 'trying to seem nice' voice lets me know her plans have changed. She's staying. AND she's doing Thanksgiving dinner.

Rug. Pull. Ass. Floor.

She then informs me of everything she's making - turkey, dressing, green beans, fruit salad, cranberry sauce, rolls, etc. I've bought ALL this stuff. She knows this because Music Girl had already told her 3 days before. So, after hearing from MG about my plans and what I'm making, MIL changes her mind, buys the SAME stuff, and goes on to tell me to, 'put your turkey back in the freezer'. How do I know she bought the stuff after MG told her? MIL said so! MG told her Thursday. MIL bought the stuff Saturday. AND then decides to tell me on Sunday. During the game. The game the Titans were losing.

I. Am. Not. Happy.

But did I say that to MIL? No. Why? Because she can make my life miserable if I do. Nope. I put my turkey back in the freezer like a good little girl. Will put a fake ass smile on my face and do my little part in making something to take to her house - 2 pumpkin pies and sweet potato casserole. But she said 'no' to my sausage balls. The same sausage balls she demands I make every freaking year. Why no to the balls? Who the hell knows?! Probably because she knew that would get to me too.

The Man told me not to listen to her. To go ahead and make my dinner and then we'd show up at her house and not eat a damn thing. I can't do it. Believe me I want to. But I will avoid conflict at almost any cost. Even when my little fee fees are hurt. GAH!

**rant over**

Sorry about that. It just had to come out somewhere and this is my 'safe' place.

I tried to make a regular blog and write day to day things on it. But I'm just not a day to day girl. I also figure that when I do have something to say, this blog right here is sufficient.

So, to equal the good with the bad up there. The Man and I actually got some Christmas shopping done this weekend. I don't think we've ever started this early. Our haul so far:
*laptop
*eat and pee baby doll
*houndstooth, wool coat
* LOTS of Bakugan stuff
*hair dryer
*rocket set
*model glue/paint for the rocket set

And of course, we had to go shop for some 'intimate apparel' for me. Black. Lace. I likey! ;)

Oh, and Logan's Roadhouse has the BEST freaking rolls! And their grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, and broccoli is pretty damn good too. Now I'm hungry...

#55

Do you remem​ber your first​ favor​ite song?​ If so, what was it?
Oh heck yeah. I was 11 or 12 and would blast 'I Want to Kiss You All Over' and 'Hot Child in the City' all through the house. My Mom was not impressed. It was definitely a sign of things to come. *ahem*

What do you refus​e to eat?
Okra, grits, and anything swimming in grease. Yes, I'm a native Southerner but I have my limits.

Have you ever injec​ted any kind of drug before?
No.

Do amusement park rides make you sick?
I've never gotten sick from a ride. The faster, higher, scarier...the better.

Who is your favorite Star Wars character?
Han Solo. He was a know-it-all, sarcastic, smart ass. My kind of man!

What kind of cheese do you put on your sandwiches?
I'm not a cheese snob, so American it is. Sometimes I'll buy Swiss for The Man and swipe a piece or two.

What was the first thing you ever learned how to cook?
Grilled cheese sandwiches - which is what I made for dinner tonight. Hey, I can't make a gourmet meal every night. HA!

Did you ever collect beanie babies?
Gosh no!

When was the last time you got a haircut?
I had about 4" trimmed off all around a few weeks ago.

Have you ever been to a bachelor/bachelorette party?
Yep. And they're never as fun as the ones in the movies. GAH!

Where are you most ticklish on your body?
Don't. Touch. My. Feet. I don't even allow foot massages because I'm afraid I'll kick the giver in the face.

Yeah. What a freaking nightmare.

What's the last board game you played?
Life or Monopoly or Clue. Can't remember.

Not a lot, but I have found some nice things there on sale.

Do you eat your mac & cheese with a fork or a spoon?
Fork.

Is there​ any medicine/pill you take every​day?​​
Multi vitamin and a calcium/magnesium/zinc supplement. The cmz especially helps with the cramping/bloating/irritability during that time of the month.

How many 20 dolla​r bills​ do you have on you right​ now?
On my person? None. I'm in bed.

Would you do meth if it was legalized?
Hell no!

Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers to survey questions?
No. If somebody doesn't like what they see/read here, they don't have to ever come back.

Do you think Obama will be assassinated?
I sure hope not.

Have you ever made out with someone and then never saw them again?
Yes.

Do you drink egg nog?
I'll have a cup or two during the holidays. More if it's 'juiced up'.

2. Do you often have nightmares?
I'm too old to have nightmares anymore.

3. Do you have any special talents?
Hell yeah, I do! I would be embarrassed to list them all though. I'm soooo modest that way. Oh yeah, modest is my middle name. HA!

4. Who is the most talent person that you know?
So many. Too many to list really. I will say a few though - Music Girl, Bones, and TM.

5. What did you watch on TV last?
I usually have the TV on just for noise. I did actually watch Numb3rs yesterday though. Something about trains, toxins, a kid, blah, blah, blah. Okay, I didn't watch it that closely.

Thanksgiving Meme(forgot who the heck I stole this from)
1. Which do you like better: Cooking at your house, or going elsewhere?
Although I dislike the day to day cooking I do, I actually enjoy cooking for the holidays. I like cooking at home rather than going somewhere else. We've spent years on the road going and going. I like staying put.

2. Do you buy a fresh or frozen bird?
Frozen. Butterball, baby!

3. What kind of stuffing?
Mine is a mix of cornbread, French bread, and white bread. Mix in onions, celery, sage, eggs, chicken stock and drippings from the turkey. Pop in the oven for 40 minutes. Yumm-0!

4. Sweet potato or pumpkin pie?
Pumpkin pie. I make a casserole out of the sweet potatoes.

5. Do you believe that turkey leftovers are a curse, or the point of the whole thing?
I love turkey leftovers! Mmmmm...

6. Which side dish would provoke a riot if it was left off the menu?
The Man would not like it if there was no fruit salad or a green veggie or cranberry sauce. Music Girl would throw a fit if there was no ham roll ups. I would go back to bed and pout if there was no dressing.

7. Do you save the carcass to make soup or stock?
Nope.

8. What do you wish you had that would make preparing Thanksgiving dinner easier?
A kitchen with more counter space.

9. Do you get up at the crack of dawn to have dinner ready in the early afternoon, or do you eat at your normal dinner hour?
I actually get up later than usual. When you usually get up at 2a.m. for work, getting up at 6a.m. to put a turkey in the oven is considered 'sleeping in'.

10. If you go to somebody else’s house, what’s your favorite dish to bring?
I take whatever I'm asked to bring - usually cheesy potatoes, sausage balls and a dessert or 2.

11. What do you wish one of your guests wouldn’t bring to your house?
I wish people would leave their pets at home. Food-wise, I don't care for MIL's dressing or coconut cake.

12. Does your usual mix of guests result in drama, or is it a group you’re happy to see?
There's rarely any drama. We all get along or 'play nice'.

13. What’s your absolute favorite thing on the menu?
If I had to pick just 1 - dressing.

14. What are you thankful for this year?
Other than the usual, I'm thankful that I'm healthier/more fit right now than I've been in years.

15. Share one family tradition –

We go see a movie after everyone has eaten and rested and eaten again.

It's Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

Links over there ------>

Sunday Stealing
1. Do you like blue cheese salad dressing? I used to, but now the taste is just too strong. I favor light ranch - better for the waistline too.

2. Favorite late night snack? The Man. I'm not a late night snacker...of the food variety.

3. Do you own a gun? Maybe. Maybe not.

4. What’s your favorite drink at Starbucks or other specialty coffee shop? I don't drink coffee. I never developed a taste for it. I get my caffeine fix from cokes.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? I'm usually fine until the blood pressure is taken. The nurse always has to do it again. I'm not sure why that flusters me. After that, I'm good again. *shrug*

6. What do you think of hot dogs? Eh. I don't particularly like them, but they're a convenient, easy dinner when I'm in a rush.

7. Favorite Christmas song? I like anything by Trans Siberian Orchestra...especially Christmas Canon Rock and Carol of the Bells.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Diet whatever or water.

9. Can you do push-ups? I love me some push ups! Push ups are my favorite kind of bra. Oh, and I can do the other kind too. ;)

10. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry? The rings The Man has given me that I wear all the time are my faves. I have a couple pair of earrings I'm quite fond of too. And my Mom's engagement ring. Can't forget that!

12. Do you have A.D.D.? What was the question? No...I don't.

13. What’s one trait that you hate about yourself? My impatience gets the better of me at times. I want what I want and I want it NOW. Yeah, that gets me in trouble...A LOT.

14. The last disease you contracted? I get common viruses and such but those aren't diseases, right? I had my gallbladder removed in the '90s because it was diseased...infected. I guess that counts.

15. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment. Froot Loops, sex, Twilight...don't ask me why. My mind wanders. *grin*

16. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Diet Coke, water, margaritas(not as regularly as I'd like though). *hiccup*

17. Current worry right now? Concrete floor for my business. Not really a worry, but it needs to be done before the health inspector comes back for his 6 month visit - any time now.

18. Current hate right now? Hate is a waste of my energy.

19. Favorite place to be? Out with The Man(TM) or family and friends. Last night with TM was perfect!

20. How did you ring in the New Year? Hell, I've slept since then! I believe it was here with family. It's fuzzy. I'm pretty sure it was here. hehehe

21. Like to travel? Love to travel. Time and $$ aren't on my side for it though.

22. Name three people who will complete Sunday Stealing this week: Judd(duh!), execnurse, Jodi.

23. Do you own slippers? I have a pair that is 2 sizes too small that I need to regift. Thanks MIL! She never gets the right size...even after she asks. WTH is up with that?!

24. What color shirt are you wearing? No shirt. All I'm wearing is my brand new, soft, red robe.

25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? Do you want to see my ass on the floor? Seriously, those fuckers are too damn slippery. Not that I've ever done anything on satin sheets. *snicker*

26. Can you whistle? You betcha!

27. Favorite singer/band? Do you have a few hours?

28. Could you ever make it 39 days on the show Survivor? No. The other girls would be too jealous of me and vote me out ASAP. Yeah, that's right. You heard me.

29. What songs do you sing in the shower? I'm too busy washing and rubbing and touching and soaping and caressing and...

30. Favorite girl’s names? Sam

31. Favorite boy’s name? Sam

32. What’s in your pocket right now? You wouldn't believe me if I told you. It's something TM bought me at Spencer's last night. *wicked grin*

33. Last thing that made you laugh? Something that TM and I was talking about last night and all I could think of was yelling, 'Get back in the car, bitch!' I know it doesn't make sense to you, but it makes perfect sense to me.

34. Like your job? Do I like running my own business and being my own boss? You bet your sweet ass I do! The early hours kind of suck, but I can live with that.

43. Favorite Sports Team? Titans, Colts, Steelers, Vols - football, Lady Vols(basketball...duh!)

44. What were you doing 12 AM last night? This question again? TM and I got a new mattress yesterday. Use your imagination. ;)

Saturday shuffling

Links over there ------>

Saturday Six
1. Between breakfast, lunch or dinner, which meal are you most likely to skip on a typical day?
I'll skip lunch if I know we're going out for supper. I'll have a snack though. I don't like skipping breakfast because then I'm hungry ALL day and will eat every-freaking-thing in sight. When you have a family you have to cook for, skipping dinner doesn't happen...not for me anyway.


2. Do you prefer a hot breakfast, like oatmeal, or a cold breakfast, like cereal?
I hardly ever make myself a hot breakfast. I'll eat bran flakes with fat free milk and a banana most mornings.

3. When you’re in the mood for a big breakfast, what do you typically crave?
Scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits, hash browns...

4. Take the quiz:
What kind of muffin are you?



You Are a Chocolate Chip Muffin



You are an interesting set of contradictions.

You are innocent yet bold. Funky yet predictable.

You are a bit dramatic and showy. You love attention.

And you know how to charm people into giving you what you want.

You are very determined and ambitious... but you're also lazy.

Success tends to come easily for you. You often “luck out”.





5. What are you more likely to cook for yourself for breakfast if you’re alone: a stack of pancakes, a waffle, or grits?
Frozen waffle - easy peasy. ;)

6. What’s your favorite beverage to drink with your breakfast?
Ice cold milk or flavored water.

WTF Sunday


I'm in a mood. Ignore it.
Links over there ------>


Sunday Stealing
1. Who did you spend at least two hours with today? I've been hiding out in my bedroom since I woke up. The kids come in sporadically to check if I'm still breathing. The Man left for work before I got up. Does the 30 minutes or so 'canoodling' with him count? ;)

2. What do you look forward to most in the next six weeks?
I'm super excited about doing all the Thanksgiving cooking for the family again this year. Seriously! I have a new stove/oven(gas!) and can't wait to cook some fab food. I'm still picking through recipes to use. Oh yeah, I'm a thrill a minute.
And then there's that little holiday we call Christmas that's just over 6 weeks away. I have 4 more weeks before shopping begins. I'm kinda sorta looking forward to that. Oh hell, who am I kidding? Spending $$ thrills me like great sex! I guess it's the sense of accomplishment or something.
*snort*

3. Who was the last person you called? Movie girl. She called me, but I was on the shitter or giving someone a bath or something. I was told to 'call her'. And like the good girl I am, I did - 18 hours later when I remembered. GAH!

4. What were you doing at 12am last night?
I think The Man was feeling me up. It's a blur. I'm almost certain it wasn't a dream.

8. Where is your favorite place to be? In bed, preferably with The Man.

Outside of the house? I love big book stores that I can get lost in. I could also spend hours in Victoria's Secret. And Old Navy. And Kohl's. I like going out to eat and seeing movies. Spending time with family and friends laughing and just being.
Other places than here? Bear Lake, New Orleans, Cedar Point...

9. Where is your least favorite place to be? Anywhere I can't be me. Anywhere I feel stifled.

10. Where would you go if you could go anywhere?
Colorado.

11. Where do you think you'll be in 10 years?
I know where I want to be. Making it happen will take lots of work.

12. What was the last thing that really made you laugh? The
two videos I put up on my other blog. If you watch Supernatural, you'll know why Dean screaming is so fucking funny. I watch these every day just to get my cackle on.

13. What cities/towns/villages have you lived in?
I've not lived out of the state I was born in. I have lived in several different cities here though. I'm sooooo ready to get away from here!

14. Are you a social person?
Not today. Usually I am up to doing and going and being out with family/friends.

15. Do you sleep alone? Are you high?! I haven't slept alone in forever. If there's not someone copping a feel every so often, I can't sleep. *snicker*

Weekly Memes

I'm using today to do all the weekly memes I didn't do this week for whatever reason. It's raining here and I just don't feel like doing a damn thing other than this.
Pillows - check.
Blanket - check.
Background noise - check.
Drink - check.

Now that I'm comfy, I hope I can stay awake. *grin*

1. meatloaf
2. lasagna
3. chicken, broccoli casserole
4. steak

Monday's a Bitch
1. What time do you usually go to bed on weekdays? I go to bed early since I get up at an ungodly hour. I try to be in bed no later than 8 most nights. There are times something's going on and I'll stay up until 10. Oh yeah, I'm a party girl! *snort*
2. Has anyone ever told you about bad habits you have during sleep? (Snoring, talking, kicking etc?) All the fucking time. I do it all. Oh and the best one? I drool. GAH!
3. Do you prefer your sleeping environment to be warm and snug, or cool and crisp? Yes. Warm and snug during the colder months and cool and crisp during the warm months.
4. What was your favourite bedtime story as a child? I never was read bedtime stories.
5. Is there anything unusual that you often do while in bed? (Unusual meaning something other than sleeping, reading, naughty fun etc.) The only 'unusual' things I can think of are naughty, good fun.


Manic Monday
How many hours of TV do you watch per week? Do you feel that's too much, not enough or just right? Most of my tv viewing is in the morning time watching recorded shows. Hmmm, I'd say I watch 30 or so hours a week. I'm almost always doing something while watching though - working, cleaning, exercising, computing, etc. I like my tv shows, so I don't think that's too much. If you enjoy something, do it, right?

Which of the 5 senses do you feel is your strongest sense? With age, my sight and hearing is fading, so not those. Touch is still good. Smell is kind of off. I guess taste. Yeah, definitely taste.

What's the wackiest belief you held as a child? When I was very young, I thought everything from furniture to books had eyes and was watching me. I'm sure one of my older sibs put that in my head. The thought didn't scare me though. I just thought that's how it was.

Wednesday Weirdness
1. If you were in a situation where it was either starve to death or resort to cannibalism, would you resort to cannibalism to stay alive or let yourself starve? I like living, so I probably would resort to cannibalism. I'd just keep telling myself it was chicken. :0

2. Do you know all of the words to the National Anthem and The Pledge of Allegiance? Yes to both. I've said/sung them both enough that I better know 'em.

3. Do you consider yourself a leader or a follower? Both. I'm a leader in things I know well. A follower in things I don't.

4. What is your most favorite holiday? Why? I've always loved July 4th because it's celebrated with outside activities and fireworks. I love warm weather holidays! Christmas is becoming a favorite though. It used to be very stressful, but is becoming less so thanks to The Man helping more and more the last few years.

5. In what ways, if any, are you superstitious? I'm not really superstitious, but things have become a habit. Like knocking on wood, not walking under ladders, throwing salt over my shoulder if I spill some, etc. I don't really think bad things will happen if I don't do those things. Like I said, habit.

6. If you had to pick a creature from the Mythical Creatures Guide to be your pet, which would you choose and why?
I was going to say Cockatrice, but it wasn't what I thought. *wink*
I'll say Pegasus. He looks harmless enough.



Thursday Threesome
Not new.
::Just checking in::

Onesome: Just-- the Cell Phone? ...and no land line? How does it pencil out for you: do you need to have both a cell phone and a home phone in your life? How about down the road? Do you see yourself disconnecting from the hard-wired connection?
I give family, friends, schools, and the occasional business contact my cell number. The home land line number is given to those I don't want having my cell number.

Twosome: Checking-- accounts, a thing of the past or something that will be around for a while? I'm wondering how much we're coming around to debit cards and online payments...
I'll be using checks for a while. I use them for charity, school, and some bills that get mailed.

Threesome: In-- the same vein: how about the net itself? If you're on it for basic communications then what happens when your handheld device becomes your email/chat/and voice communication system? Do you bail from the hardwired home links when wifi becomes just a little more ubiquitous? ...and before you answer, check in with any teen you see walking down the street with their head in the Net!
I'm not a tech nut, so having everything on one device matters squat to me.

Friday Fill-in
1. My blueprint for success includes putting the best product out there that I can at a competitive price.
2. A mini Snickers was the last candy I ate.
3. The best facial moisturizer I've ever used is a cheap knock off of Neutragena that I bought at WalMart and which I hardly ever use.
4. Sex can be good therapy.
5. I'd like to tell you about my weight loss journey, but it would probably bore most to tears.
6. Loyalty and strength are is my strongest characteristics.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to chilling with The Man, tomorrow my plans include work, housecleaning, laundry, doing things with the kids, and shopping and Sunday, I want to go on a date with The Man or take the family to a movie!


Friday 5
What usually marks the middle of your day?
Getting the last of the housework/cleaning done before the kids get home from school.
From whom (or to whom) was your most recent middle-of-the-night phone call?
Movie Girl called a few nights ago wanting some birth control advice. She calls me a lot after I go to bed. She's a night owl and thinks everybody else is too.
On what social, political, economic, or moral issue are you in the middle of the road?
I've got opinions on all things. I'm not a middle of the road kind of girl. I do try to understand both sides to issues though and not push my opinions on others.
How likely are you to give someone your middle finger?
Not very likely. I'm a namecaller. Idiot and asshole are my favorites.
When were you last caught in the middle of a disagreement that really had nothing to do with you?
Movie Girl and Music Girl try to do this to me often. I don't take the bait. They're big girls and can hash shit out on their own.

2. Whom do you talk to on the phone the most? Movie Girl.

4. If you could get ahold of one celebrity phone number, whose digits would you want? Jensen Ackles. Or Rufus Sewell. Or Christian Bale. Or...

TMI Tuesday #159

Link over there ------>

1. Have you ever had a moving violation? An auto accident? That was your fault?
I've been stopped many times, but never even been given a warning citation. The Man thinks I give 'favors'. Ummm...

I did smack into an old man's truck once that was parked halfway UP my driveway. What dumbass parks there? Oh yeah, him. I was 17 and he felt bad. He paid to fix everything.

2. Have you ever voted? How old were you the first time you voted?
Hell yes I've voted. I was 18 my first time.

3. Are you glad this election cycle is over?
YES! No more calls. No more ads. The signs lining the roads can be taken down.

4. Do you have guilty pleasure? What is it (or are they)?
Of course I do. Margaritas, sex, stupid reality tv like Rock of Love, bullet vibes, etc.

5. What is the most embarrassing thing you have done recently?
Let one of my multiple personalities out at an inopportune time. The Man was not happy.

Bonus: How much impact has the Wall Street and general economic wilt had on you?

Business is off a little. Vendor prices are up, so we cut back here and there. Prices at the stores are up, so I tend to search for bargains more than usual. Other than that, I'm good.
