Babysitter to 3 awfully mannered kids.

1. Is there someone you'd like to be kissing right now? I can think of a few someones.

2. When you're being extremely quiet, what does it mean? I'm reading, concentrating on what I'm doing, or you've pissed me off and I need time to myself. I'm not 'extremely quiet' even when I sleep. I'm a sleep talker.

3. What are you listening to right now? 'F
luff' by Black Sabbath, the kids playing around in the living room, tennis balls being bounced, and various other noises. Ohhh, now 'Mercy, Mercy Me' by Marvin Gaye is playing.

4. Are you a big fan of thunderstorms? I like 'em. They make me want to climb in between the sheets and...

5. Do you believe in perfect? HAHAHA!! Yeah, riiiight. Anyone looking for perfection will be sorely disappointed.

12. How about women understanding men? Give them space and lots of sex and they're good. Am I close?

Like, it's Saturday and I'm like going out like...

Not much time today. We're taking the kids to a movie - Paul Blart: Mall Cop. The Man and I will then hand them over to Music Girl and she's going to take them shopping for shoes. She said something about Crocs. The Man and I will head to the Big City to do some shopping of our own.

Saturday 9: The First Apartment

1. Where had you moved from? I moved out of my Mom's house about 20 miles away.

2. Describe your first apartment. It was a second floor, 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment. As you open the door, the living room was right there. The kitchen was off to the right. Walk by the kitchen and you enter the hallway. Bathroom was the first door on the right. Directly across was the linen closet. Second door on the right was my bedroom. Right across from mine was my roommates bedroom. There was always someone sleeping on the couch in the living room. Always.

3. How old were you when you had your apartment? I was a couple of months into being 18.

4. Did you have roommates? If yes, tell us more.
Lynn was my roommate. We worked together. We never really were friends or hung out. We both worked too much.

5. What was your place of employment then? I was a waitress/hostess at a restaurant and a lifeguard at the local community center.

6. How were you finances at the time? I always had money to pay the bills and do what I wanted - plus go to college. I made sure to put back XX amount of $$ every week for bills and emergency cash and the rest, I spent on whatever.

7. Tell us about a lover who spent a night there. He was a fireman. That is all. ;)

8. Tell us about a band you listen to then. (You can cheat. Look it up.) Journey, Def Leppard, Scorpions, Motley Crue, Ratt, Bon Jovi...

What do you want to know about 'em?

9. How long did you live there and why did you move from there? I lived there for 8 months. Moved out because one of the people that was always on the couch decided she would stay indefinitely - with her newborn. What was I going to do, kick her out? I didn't have the heart. Lynn didn't either. I decided to go.

Saturday Six
1. What commonly-used word in speech annoys you the most? When did you hear it last used? People who like use the word 'like' in sentences like all the time. I hear it ALL the time. Other than that, I can't think of an annoying word.

2. Which commonly-used word annoys you the most when you hear it mispronounced? What’s the most common mispronunciation you hear for this word? It's 'ask' people - not 'aks' or 'ax'.

3. Which word(s) do you wish people would use more often? Yes. Please. Thank you. You've just won $100 million.

4. Take the quiz: What’s Your Word?

Your Word is "Peace"

You see life as precious, and you wish everyone was safe, happy, and taken care of.

Social justice, human rights, and peace for all nations are all important to you.

While you can't stop war, you try to be as calm and compassionate as possible in your everyday life.

You promote harmony and cooperation. You're always willing to meet someone a little more than halfway.

5. Which internet expression or abbreviation do you use most often? I'm a fan of this guy ;). I like to wink, I guess. I also enjoy putting words between **. *grin*

6. Which internet expression or abbreviation would you most like to see disappear forever? I'm not into the lingo where numbers are used instead of letters - l8r for later, 2nite for tonight.

TGIF - or is it?

School's out because it's just too damn cold for the kids to go. Riiight. The board just wanted a 4 day weekend since they're also out Monday for MLK Day. Shit. I walked to and from school in worse weather than this. I guess my generation was less precious or something. Hyper Boy has been saying all week it was too cold to go to school and I'd tell him, 'We don't close school here because it's too cold.' Now I'm a liar. Thanks asshats board. Enjoy your long weekend. It's not like you just had a 2½ week vacay 2 weeks ago.

I'm not bitter. Really. hehehe

Wednesday - as if you didn't know

Happy Hump Day!
The Man's dentist visit went pretty well yesterday. He will need 2 teeth pulled. The Dr. gave him a 'script for antibiotics and was wanting to give him one for painkillers, but The Man said no. The Man is like that. Won't drink. Won't take anything stronger than Aleve.

Something surprising after his visit when he was paying, the office manager said she believes we'll be covered for anything and everything 100% - for the whole family. Even Joker's braces!! She looked at when we started our coverage and her and The Man got to talking and he does remember after a certain period we should be totally covered, but he didn't realize the time was now. We just need to confirm with the insurance. The office manager didn't get through to the insurance before we left, but she's sure of it. The Man is calling today to double check.

So, me no pouty anymore. ;)

Wednesday Weirdness #38: Hypothetical!
Questions by: Bella Dreamer with help from Amorous Rocker & Carrying Me Away

These questions are all hypothetical scenarios. Read along and have fun! ANSWER HONESTLY!

1- Times are hard and you get laid off. You turn to the adult entertainment industry and decide to get into sexing it up on camera. You're now a porn star. Even though you now do porn for a living, you still hold on to a little moral, ethics and dignity. What are 3 things, sexually, that you rule out as absolutely not happenings no matter the amount of money?
Easy. Animals, 'elimination' play, and especially painful brutality.

2- Pretend you spent a busy day running errands and come home in the afternoon when no one else is home. You come in, sit things down and head to the kitchen. You find a dead body laying in the kitchen floor. What would you do?
Poke it with billiard stick. If it doesn't move, call 911. If it does, run! Someone else would surely call 911 after hearing my screams. Maybe.

3- After some extensive testing, scientists found out you have a special supernatural skill that could be put to use to save 20,000 men and women all over the world. The only catch is after you use it, you will die. If you don't use it, 30,000 people will die but you'll still be alive and won't suffer any illness or strange side effects of your special supernatural skill. Are you willing to sacrifice your life for 20,000 people?
Sorry, but I'm a selfish bitch and want to live.

4- You are at a concert. A fight breaks out and the person in front of you gets hit by the person beside you. They turn around and think it's you and no amount of reasoning will convince them otherwise. They are taller by several inches and outweigh you by around 50 pounds. You are about to get punched and possibly manhandled. How do you get out of it and avoid injury?
If it's a man, I'll go for the groin. A woman, the face. Don't mess with me.

5- You're having a dinner party with your close friends. One close friend asks if it is fine if they bring a date along. You ask your friend if their date is someone they trust to act well mannered and respectful to others. Your friend sings the praises of their date and you agree to let them bring their date to the dinner party. Once there, their date turns out to be crude, obnoxious, disrespectful and all around a real vile ass to be around. Do you tough it out and later apologize to your other guests? Pull your friend aside and tell them to reign in their date? Confront the friends date about their vile behavior?
I would have absolutely no problem showing someone like that the door. And my friend would get an earful too.

6- You go to the grocery store and bump carts with a woman. She gets angry and chants at you in gibberish. She smiles, informing you that she has cursed you to never have sex again unless you pay for it. You roll your eyes and walk off. 2 years later and you haven't had any sexual contact with another person since that day. Do you start paying for sex or just never have sexual contact with another person again?
Hahaha! Riiight. I'm a woman. Getting a man to have sex with me is not a problem. Ummm, is that a bit arrogant to say?

7- Your really good friend is going to their grandmother's house for dinner and invites you along. You make sure it is fine with their grandmother and she says to come along if you like, she has made more than enough food to feed you too. You go. While there, you accidentally break something extremely valuable to your friends grandmother. Do you hide it and pretend nothing every happened or come clean?

I apologize profusely and offer to replace it or pay for it. Geez.

TMI Tuesday #169
1. On a scale of 1-10, how satisfied are you with your sex life?
I'll give it a solid 8. I get plenty. I give a lot. I can't complain about the quality- too much(heh). But there's always more to experience.
2. If someone shoves you up against a wall while kissing you, your reaction is?
Wrap my legs around them, run my fingers through their hair, and hang on!
3. What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done or said to you?
4. Where is the most unusual place you have ever had sex?
Various public places. I'll leave it to your imagination.
5. How do you liked to be kissed?
I don't like pecks. I'm not a chicken. Anything else is good. There are certain kinds of kisses that make my knees go weak. ;)

Bonus (as in optional):Most embarrassing sexual moment?
Oh no you don't. I'm not telling any of those stories here. hehehe

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


The Man has a dentist appointment today. He's had a tooth ache that comes and goes and it comes more than goes now. Did that make any sense? I'll be dropping him off and going shopping. One of my favorite clothing places is 2 doors down from the dentist. I still have a few $$ on my giftcard, so no out-of-pocket $$ will be spent. I'm trying to mind the budget. Trying.

Back to the dental stuff though. I know the dentist is going to find other things wrong with The Man's teeth/mouth. I just know it. So, the $$ we were going to put towards my dental issues will now go towards his. In part, I'm a little relieved. And in part, I'm a bit pouty. Yes, I get pouty. Shut up. I just want to get this done and over with. Oh well, I guess we'll see what happens at his appointment. Right now, I just want him pain-free. I don't like him hurting and not being able to do a damn thing about it.

Manic Monday #150

If you were to name the most creative outlet that you have, what would it be? Shopping? I kid. It would have to be music.

What spot in your body would you say is the center of your emotional being? Ummm, that's pretty personal and it's also situational. I am an emotional person, but I'm emotionally diverse dependent on so many factors. My heart doesn't rule my emotions all the time. My brain doesn't rule my emotions all the time. My sexuality doesn't rule my emotions all the time. I really can't explain it any better than that. So, I'll say my emotional center is my stomach. *grin*

What do you think is the secret to a tranquil soul? Lots of sex. Duh!

Sunday, January 11, 2009

Wouldn't you like to be a farter too?

Joker: Here, let me pull your finger.
Mini Me: Ow! You pulled it too hard!!

Joker: Yeah, and you still didn't fart.
Mini Me: Shush!
Joker: Hey! Maybe since you're a girl, I have to pull your hair.
Mini Me: Okay, but not hard. And don't pull any of the pink parts.
Joker:*pulling hair* Nope. Still doesn't work.
Mini Me: I think you pulled a pink hair.

Mini Me comes in the kitchen and stands right behind me as I'm washing dinner dishes. I fart.

Mini Me: Mom! You farted! How did you do that? And you're sooooo gross!!
Me: It's a gift. Don't ever let anyone say your Mom doesn't have skills.

Mini Me rolls her eyes and stomps off.

Me: You better be glad you're so cute 'cause I should smack that ass you little eye roller.

Oh yeah, I'm sooooo going to win Mother of the Year.

Sunday Schmunday...

I hate budget time. The Man never sees my side of why I need more 'stuff'. Oh well. Time to buckle down. Good bye new, silky, sexy unmentionables - for now. I did go on a farewell shopping trip yesterday. Shhhh!

Sunday Stealing: The Hardest Meme Ever
1. What is the bravest thing that you feel you've ever done physically?
I saved a life or two or maybe a few as a lifeguard in my other life milleniums ago. And then there is the birthing of children. I'm not sure if that's brave or crazy after the first one.

2. What is the bravest thing that you feel you've ever done emotionally? Trusting again after being totally crushed. And again, there's the loving of the children even after one tells you you look pregnant when you're not. UGH!

3. What one talent do you wish you had that you don't? Although some people *ahem* in my family believe me to be a mind reader, I am not. Give me some mind reading abilities, please.

4. If you had that talent what would you be doing with it? I would use it to my freaking advantage, of course!

5. We all have our reasons for blogging but what would be your ultimate goal for your blog or as a blogger? This blog is just for fun. Nothing more. You will not read anything too serious here. This is where I relax and de-stress.

7. Who are you three favorite blogs to visit (Yes, you can have ties and name more than three.) Any of those listed under 'Blogs I Stalk'. Right over there ------>

8. You can trade lives with any one person for a month. Who would it be and why? For a whole month? No thanks. I might trade lives with Angelina Jolie for a day or two, but that's it. Hopefully, Brad would be around. ;)

9. There's a fire and your family is safe but you have the chance to save any one item from your house. What would it be and why? I'll be filling a suitcase with my drawers of bras and panties as the embers fall all around me. Oh, and my laptop. Heh.

10. You have the chance to go back in time and warn yourself before making a bad choice. What choice would it be and what would you tell yourself? Do NOT buy the blue dress for senior prom. It will get ripped. Buy the purple, more body-hugging dress. It won't get caught in something. *giggle*

Your Word is "Love"

You see life as possibility to form deep connections with a few people.

Relationships are the center of your world, and you always take time to bond with those you love.

You are caring and giving. You enjoy helping those you love.

And when it comes to romantic love, you feel passionately ... even in a very long term relationship.

Keep's getting better...my new 'theme'...

I lied yesterday. Something can come between me and shopping. The man came home with a certain 'look' in his eyes. And that was that. ;)

I'm only in the mood for one meme today and Sunday Stealing is it.
Link over there somewhere ------>

Sunday Stealing: The New Year Meme
1. Looking back on 2008, what might your theme song have been? 'Let's Get Physical' 'cause it's corny and I'm kinda corny. And that's what I did most of in 2008. Take that however you like. You're probably right. ;)

2. If 2008 was a movie, who would play you? It would have to be an actress willing to pack on 70+ lbs or wear padding at the beginning of the movie since that's how much extra weight I was carrying around last January. Renee Zellweger comes to mind.

3. What was your greatest gift of 2008? The ones I gave to myself. I worked my ass off to better myself in so many ways last year. I'm liking me again.

4. What is your New Year Resolution, or, what are you committing to this year? Oh hell, resolutions AND committing? This is too heavy for me.

5. If January could be represented by one song, what would it be? Now my head is hurting. I'm just going to pull something out of my ass off my Zune. And the winner is...'Take on Me' by A-Ha. Stop snickering. I can still hear you.

6. What do you wish for your body in 2009? Why the heck was my first thought 'pleasure palace'. Seriously. I guess I want it to be a pleasure palace then. Hmmm...

7. Name one new thing you would love to try in the New Year. I can't put that here. Geez, Bud! The Man and I have discussed a few new things we will definitely be trying this year though. *ahem*

8. What do you long for 2009 to bring? Well, I'm still waiting for Bud to take me to a UConn game. Other than that...more good food, good friends, and good times.

9. If that happened, how would you feel? What a silly question.

10. Where would you love to vacation in 2009 if money were no object? At this point, I really don't care. I just want to go somewhere this year. Pretty please.

11. What would you like the theme of 2009 to be? Consulting the Zune again. 'Keeps Getting Better'. Oh, I like that! Good one, Zune.

12. If 2009 was a book, and the title was 5 words or less, what might the title be? I'm just going to put the first thing that came to mind. Ready? 'Don't Fart on Poptart'. I know. I know. *giggle*

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Shut the eff up...

The Man is on shaky ground this morning. Apparently there is a commercial hyping Always feminine products that will make that time "happy". You see where this is going, right?

Yeah, The Man went there. Don't worry. I let him live. Happy my ass. ;)

Links over there ------>

Saturday 9: Dying to Know
1. What do you believe happens when we die? Systems shut down, heart stops, breathing stops. Other than that, I haven't any idea. I know what I want to happen, but there's only one way to find out and I'm not ready for that journey just yet. I'm having too much fun here.

2. Do you consider yourself religious? Hells bells, no. I'm what is called in the South a heathen. When someone here asks what church my family belongs to and I reply, 'We don't attend church', mouths fly open. Within a nanosecond, I can see them plotting to save my soul. They should know it is futile.

3. Do you believe in ghosts? Yes. And I'm still waiting for Jason or Grant to call. I'm ready to join them on Ghost Hunters. Call me, guys!

4. Do you believe that people live on other planets? Why should planet Earth have the only humanoids?

5. Have you ever seen something abnormal? Nothing like E.T. abnormal. I have seen some strange things though. Things I can't explain. I have chased a ghost before. Is that abnormal enough? Or are you wanting Star Wars creatures abnormal?

6. Do you believe in reincarnation? I'm counting on it, dammit. I want to come back. And back. And back. And back. If I can't, make me a freaking vampire and I'll live forever. hehehe

7. Have you ever witnessed a miracle? I'm one of those silly, emotional girlys that see miracles in everything. I don't need water to turn into wine or anything.

8. Is there a person living or dead that influences your philosophies? My Mom was a big influence. She was a big believer in the Golden Rule.

9. Is there a work of fiction that closely matches your spiritual beliefs? I'm not sure. Is there a book out there about a southern woman living life the best way she can while raising kids, loving The Man, and working her ass off? A woman that's not too sure about spiritual stuff, but is hopeful that she's doing the best she can and if there is a test at the end of this life, she hopes she passes? That's more non-fiction though. ;)

The Saturday Special
~One Word To Start A Sentence Or Statement~
~Fill In The Blanks~
1. Here, come sit by me.

2. There isn't anything that will come between me and shopping today.

3. Everywhere I go leads me somewhere.

4. Nowhere has got to be a lonely place.

Resolution? What resolution?

My New Year's Eve dinner went off without a hitch. Good food. Good company. Good times.

That night when everyone was making drunken resolutions, I added another to my list. I resolved to stop being a grumpy morning person. Everybody laughed. But dammit, I was determined. Was.

The New Year started out with a bang. Literally. Take that however you want. ;)

Then morning came. I tried. Really I did. But a certain visitor has made it nearly impossible. I will leave it at that.

One resolution broken. A dozen or so more to go. Heh.

Links over there ------>

Friday Fill Ins
1. The world is not ready for someone like me.

2. 'Get off my ball' was the last thing I said.(Mini Me will not leave my exercise ball alone.) Heh.

3. I wonder why I haven't won 'Sexiest Woman Alive' yet. The Man says he voted for me. (Hey - if Britney can win it, I think I deserve a shot.) ;)

4. Here at the end of all things.

5. There's something to be said for sparkly, glittery blouses.(What can I say? I like 'em. The more shimmery, the better.)

6. In five years, Colorado is where I want to be.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to chilling at home with the family, tomorrow my plans include shopping and more shopping and Sunday, I want to sleep in!

Friday 5
What’s a dish you always go back for seconds of, even if you know you’ve had enough? Potatoes - mashed, cheesy, fries, baked. They are evil!
For how many seconds can you hold your breath? It's been a while since I've timed it, but I can go the long length of a pool underwater and still have air to spare.
What was the second-best thing about your New Year’s celebration? Having the party at our house. It's my least favorite night to be on the road.

What was your most recent second-hand purchase? I bought our dining room set at an estate sale sometime last Spring. Very nice.
A second-degree burn on human skin can be identified by the blistering it causes. When did you last suffer a second-degree burn? It's been about 8 months or so when I was cooking on my old, electric stove and my knuckle came in contact with the burner. Owie!
Alternate question: Without looking it up, can you name the four positions that comprise the defensive secondary in American football? Cornerbacks(left and right) and safeties(strong and free).
