My dilemma...

So I am pretty fabulous right?

Ok so a long time ago (7-8 months ago) when I was medically released to go back to work I started to feverishly search all know means of finding a job. I went to the temp agency which was HELL
and I applied to just about anything that interested me.
Well on Tuesday I got a call from the City Office asking me to come in for an interview (I need to say how strange this is because its been 8 months since my first interview but with the County and the City things take FOREVER)
They ask me to come in on Thursday..Which I must say was quite strange as I was already leaving work early to go to a doctors appointment (I'll blog that later I can't make this shit up)
When they were trying to schedule a time with me I was trying to get them to do it after my Dr. appointment so work would not be any wiser.
I called 8 times (she asked me to keep calling back to see if they were at the 3pm interviews)
I called 5 more times and nothing, so she tells me to call at 3pm and she will see what she can do at this same time I told her "But I am FABULOUS you have to interview me!" half joking and making fun of myself. I am not even kidding I said this
So I call and she says Ok 2:30 it is.
So I leave work @ 12:30 for my 1:45 Dr appointment worried because the interview is across town.
I get to the office @ 1:08 (it always takes FOREVER at this Dr) my ass barely hits the chair and I am being called in. I was in and out WITH INJECTIONS TO MY SPINE in 25 minutes.
Shocked, I scoot across town to the City Hall building for my interview through tears because lets face it I just had 4 injections to my spine and its no picnic.
I cry in the car before I go in (the pain) I fix my makeup put on my favorite lipgloss and off I go.

I must say THEY LOVED ME. I got the job. Well not officially but pretty damn sure about it, she said she was SO happy she waited to interview me and she was SO glad I had gone last, I had all 4 of them laughing in the interview and they introduced me to people in the office.
Yeah pretty sure (that or I am just cocky)

So my dilemma is. Do I take it? See thing is its less money (not by much) and its closer to home (by 1/2 hour) and its with the City (once your in, you have to kill someone to get out)

See where I am, in the short 6 months I have been with them I like to think they like me, I mean I know they do, and I love what I do (not so much some of the people I work with but you get that anywhere) and I love the company. I am loyal to them.

I think I will wait till I get the "official" offer, then I will go to my company now and ask for more money and tell them why I want more money. If they fight for me (I hope they will, but who knows they just gave me a raise Sept 1)
I think I will stay (even though it means driving 1 hour to work and 1 hour home) if not City Office here I come

What would you do? (if anyone reads this shit)

Oh Gilmore girls

So I go to the gym tonight.
I walk in and there are two guys "pumping iron" (if you can call that its a small gym) and I walk in and I laugh out loud. Both TV's are off

They both stare at me.

Me "Ok I am so embarrassed do you guys mind if I watch Gilmore Girls?"

Two Boys starring at me blankly

Me "Well I just wanted to ask because both TV's are off I did not want to interrupt anything"

Two Boys "Um, well, yeah, no problem, sure, " Continue to stare at me like I am crazy

I turn on the TV and the boys ran away.

So I really get into the show (Season Premier I LOVE THIS SHOW) and this big burley guy all tatted up walks in and turns on the other TV which is MUCH louder than the one I have on and I can barely hear my TV.

I am thinking "You Fucking Jackass I was here first and now I can not even fucking hear my show"

He turns to me smiles and changes the channel to the Gilmore Girls.

I again laugh out loud

Funny how the strangest things make you laugh

Open letter to the women I work with

Dear Ladies,

Ok I have bitched about this before. I have even kindly asked (I am so serious that I did) I asked that because our toilet in the ladies bathroom does not really flush "great" all the time could you please make sure not to leave any surprises.
Or to the fine, classy lady who left her TAMPON (you dirty slut) for my viewing pleasure.
Serious is it so hard to ask to check for floaters before you leave? I mean its bad enough to have to share 1 bathroom with all of you and somehow no matter what time of day I need to use it someone has just taken the B.I.G.G.E.S.T. stinkest ass shit know to man.
I will never claim that my shit don't stink but serious, if its that bad you should see your doctor.
Oh and to the people who ALWAYS happen to walk by after I have done my business and swing open the door to cross paths with you I am in serious consideration of yelling out the door to make sure someone is not RIGHT there every time I shit. I never want anyone to smell me, and I know I can not even try to hide how guilty I am on my face, the look of "surprise" on my face that I would run into someone I work with right outside the door of the bathroom and I can not even look at you or say anything... umm yeah.. I just shit... And I do not know why that bugs me... but it does..

So Ladies get it together. Flush twice if you have to (I know its a lot to ask) but its not high school, nore do we live in a frat house and its considered "cool" or "narly" to show other people your shit.
I appreciate it.

This was funny! How accurate!

Your Job Dissatisfaction Level is 51%

Well, you don't have the worst job in the world, but it's not great.
And don't worry, you're not the problem - your company is.
Start looking around for another job, even if you're not totally fed up.
Because in time, you're going to be dying to quit!

I left work sick today... Again

My friggin back keeps bugging me so it makes my neck hurt, which is return gives me bloody headaches.
Friggin hell.

I L.O.V.E.D. Greys Anatomy last night. This is going to be SUCH a GREAT SEASON!! (did you cry? I so cried)

I am SO excited for my cousins visit.

Flight booked- Check

Vegas hotel on the strip- Check

A great day!!

So excited about Grey's Anatomy tonight!!!!

Oh and finally its confirmed that my baby cousin will be here Oct 27-Nov 7th. So much to do and plan!! Trust me when I say there will be lots of debauchery and fun drunk falling down stories. Of coarse without question we will need to go to Vegas and I think she is scared. I mean I would be scared too if I had NEVER been on vacation or "technically" outta Canada, and lets face it she's coming to see me… sooo…. well I am just saying I can be one crazy cat.

True story

Baby cousin "I am scared really?"

Me "Why? Just because we have INSANE highways that people get shot at on for no apparent reasons, crack heads, and RUDE people, oh and the airport (LAX) is INSANE really, why would you be scared? I mean it’s a daily thing"

Baby cousin

Me "Serious, I mean depending on where we go there should not be TOO many crack heads?"

This is going to be fun!! Wait till she sees

And will get to go to the ocean because she's never been and I have not been IN WAY TOO LONG. Its strange never living near an ocean then you move to the ocean and the only time you visit the ocean is when people visit. I am going to have to work on that.

Bastards at the credit card company

So we all get them in the mail. And having called in sick to work the other day I had a little time on my hands.
I actually read one of the offers. The travel one. Currentley the hubby and I have been collection airmiles for the last 6 years (2 years we lived in different countrys) so we have quite a few points. Well awhile back the hubby got a card that all the money spent turned into airmiles.
So the offer I was reading was for the same card he had but with my airmiles number. But I read through the WHOLE offer.
The bastards failed to mention that for the last 4 years we have been using the hubbys card that with it one of the benifits is 2 $99 flights anywhere in the world PER YEAR.
The amount we use the card and the amount of points we have (enough to fly anywhere the airline goes) they never once since the hubby had the card mentioned these HUGE discounted flights.
So I ordered a card with my number and I.AM.Going.TO.Milk.IT!!
Oh yeah. Every chance I get

Why I love my dad! And some explanation why I am crazy

Hey Girl:

Many thanks to both of you for the birthday card. The
stuff inside was a suprise as well as a mess. I got it
all over the floor.

James, Jen and I went to skydive yesterday. Jen and
James made their jumps fromm 11,500 feet and were both
happy they did it. Jen got sick after she was on the
ground but still enjoyed it. I unfortunately got up to
five thousand feet and had parts of the plane fall off
so we couldn't get the door closed. By the time we
landed, the weather had clouded over and the jumps
were put on hold. I am going back next Sat. to do
mine. You would think at 51 I would be looking at
bingo or something a little calmer instead of jumping
out of a perfectly good plane at over 2 miles up. Well
I guess some of us never grow up.

Miss you guys. Hope everything is ok with you. Talk to
you real soon.

Love, the old and still stupid guy

This is one of my favorite pictures from my wedding. Me my sis, and dad.

Ok I have pondered this for MANY frustrated hours. The hubby helped but his solution is that we should all have permission to just shoot bad drivers.
Serious just blow them away.

But I have thought up a solution. One that is not so brash as to take human life.
Ok so here it is. The right to bare arms.
All drivers should be aloud to have a paint ball gun in there car.

If you get cut off. Poof you get to shoot that car.

If the cars do not merge doing at least 65 onto the highway. You get shot.

If for any reason other than a small child dashing into the highway and you SLAM on your brakes. You get shot.

If you are doing less than 65 on the highway. You get shot.

If you wait till you are half way passed your exit and decide that YOU MUST do whatever it takes cutting off 4 cars in your hurry. You get shot

So this would MAKE people have to wear there shame. Serious it would be all out there for the world to see you are and IDIOT and not just an idiot a BAD DRIVER! So very scarlet letter of me

Who HATES more than anything than to be a bad driver?

Oh and its all set up for the Gov too. IF you have more than 3 shots against you (I have said 3 because lets face it some times we do stupid shit, we are not paying attention for a split second or whatever ), you have to pay a fine. Something stupid like $729. It would make a lot more people pay FRIGGIN ATTENTION ON THE ROADS!!! (this would be fined weekly. And if you could not pay, your car does not work)
And if you get fined more than 3 times your car does not start for you. Or your husband or friends cars will not start for you either. You are BANNED from the roads for 6 months.
And if you continue to re-offend then you never drive again. Simple

If you impede the flow of traffic because you and your dumb ass MINIVAN feel you have the right to drive in the fast lane doing 45. You get shot.
If you cut me off, where its OBVIOUS that I am going faster than you and cause be to almost hit you. You get shot.
You cause an accident. You do not pass go, you immediately lose your driving privileges for 6 months. (have you ever notice that its ALWAYS the same people getting into accidents)

Oh and if you are a GOOD driver (as we all believe we are) you also get rewards. While the GOV gets to keep most of the money as a good driver you are award a small appreciation check (maybe free gas I have not thought about this part too much)

If you talk on your cell phone, while doing 40 on the highway. You get shot.

If you block the traffic (well you and the other ASSHOLE) and then when the highway opens up and you now want to drive 90 so the 15 cars that have been stuck behind for the last fuckin 4 miles have to race you to get in front of you. You get shot.

I think I am on to something here. (ha ha can you tell how much thought was put into this?)

What do you think??

I have been keeping a secret.
My birthday is in 2 weeks and I "that person" you know the one who starts the count down 3 months before hand that there birthday is coming up and by the time it gets here you just want to strangle the person.
This year is weird though. I am not sure if I am under the weather or what's wrong with me.
Maybe its cause I am pushing 30?
29 is a little daunting to me really
Not sure why…

October 1.

Oh but I am excited the hubby is coming home tonight and he's bringing me a surprise. I LOVE SURPRISES, although I am one of those people who can not keep a surprise. AT ALL. If I have a surprise for you I usually spill because I get SO excited about it…

I am nuts…. I have come to terms with this..

One more sleep

Ok call me a cheese ball but I REALLY miss my hubby. He has only been gone one night and will be back on Friday
I will admit that I quite enjoyed the WHOLE bed to myself, no snoring, no being beat with a pillow in the middle of the night.

But the cons out weigh the pros.

No kiss good morning.
No warm spot to roll over into when he gets up (5:00am)
No lingering of his cologne when he hugs me good bye
No kisses good night
No snuggles
No one to debate the "shows" good and bad points
No checking him out as he leaves (he is SO friggin cute all done up for work)

One more sleep and hes home

Remembering - Robert Francis Mace

This day we will always remember... An idea to unite the blogging world to have each victim honored The 2996 Project

Robert Francis Mace who's life was lost September 11th, 2001.

This is his brothers tribute.

You have been taken from us, but you live on in our hearts and memories

Each of us carries within a recollection of you that will never fade

A little leaguer that wore a Tom Seaver card tucked inside his cap

The competitor that always found a way to win, even if it meant changing the rules a bit

Of us two, the person whose backside finally broke the yellow paddle

The son that mowed down Dad's newly planted trees on his 1st trip on the riding tractor

Playing through the deluge of Hurricane Agnes with running leaps, landing on our stomachs to glide over the pools of water all over the yard

Building a baseball diamond with posts, chicken wire and lawn mowers wherever the farmer would grant us space for our "Field of Dreams"

Riding our bikes with fury at the sound of Dad's shrill whistle, knowing
that 5 minutes was the limit before time expired for dinner

The traveler who took mom on a virtual trip of Munich through the internet

The brash young attorney who quips a helicopter trip would close the deal in time

The Eagles fan whose voice grew hoarse with each passing quarter

The not so handyman whose best work was letting someone else do it

The uncle holding his nephew and niece with the love, play and smile of a parent.

A would be John Grisham novelist, penning his 1st legal thriller

The perennial kid even at 43, hustling off for a week of tennis camp

Though difficult to fight the emotion and bewilderment of loss, there is so much more to smile over and reminisce that it dries my tears and nearly makes me chuckle.

You will be missed, Rob, my brother, but my images of you are indelible

Ken Mace, Brother

Blogs I've passed this std to

Alfreds Mom @ All up in the Kool-aid cause its like she had all this spare time, with what a new baby and everything (really this is a way for her to cheat when she needs to feed Emma, who I must add is SO BEAUTIFUL so if you have not seen her yet you need to go sneak a peak!)

Anne @ Supposedly this is good Therapy because shes killed SMITH so now she has all this spare time on her hands (in the literal sense of the word)

Jenn @ Jennster well because I can. Oh shes a MILF thats why, I tell you what if I look like her after having kids.


My mother.
She called tonight. See now you are about to find out WAY TOO much information about my real life, and my mother.
Before I start let me just say that I do love her. But I also HATE the way she is some times!! (well lets be honest most of the time)

Ok so we are chatting about life and everything and she asks about the hubby and I

Mom "So how are things with you and the hubby?"

Me "Things are great mom, I can not believe its been 3 years already. I am so lucky to have found such a great man that makes me so happy"

Mom - Long Pause "Yeah well"

Me "What?"

Mom "Well you know, its only been 3 years, I mean 3 years is nothing in what a lifetime that marriage is supposed to be"

Me "what's that supposed to mean? Hubby and I have been together for 8 years actually, not 3, we have been married for 3 but we dated for 2 1/2 years, we were engaged for 2, now 3 years of marriage. We will have been together for 8 years in February"

Mom "Well I am just saying"

Me "What, what are you just saying are you still convinced that "I am making the biggest mistake of my life?" mom have you not gotten over that yet? Can you not just be happy that I am happy? Can you not just say you are happy I have found someone that I love to death and who loves me back, no questions asked? Do you remember how when I called you through tears to share my joy with you and told you I was getting married, do you remember you were the first person I called because I KNEW it would mean the world to you and all you had to say was I was making the biggest mistake I ever will in my life, and we did not talk for 7 months? Do you remember how much that hurt me, and how long it took me to get over that. And the man I married is the one who with much argument FOUGHT with me to call you to make sure every thing was made right before the wedding?" (because as it stood she was not going to be invited, Oh and she's been a wedding co-ordinator for 15 years)

Mom "Well I do not remember it quite like that, and I still think maybe it might have not been the best decision"

Me "ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS? Your being serious right? That after 8 years you STILL THINK I am making a mistake, I wish for one minute mom you could see us together and see how great we are for each other and how we make each other so happy"

Mom "Well you did not really give me that chance did you?" (I must add here that she's still angry with me that I moved 3000 miles away from her)

Me "I have to go I love you"

I AM SO FRIGGIN ANGRY!!! I mean its not even that she does not like the hubby, she claims she does and my dad and him get along better than anything. It just really irks me that after all this time she would still get under my skin like this.

Oh and guess who calms me down after I vent that I hate the women and I feel like I am going to cry (its only my mother that can get me SO ANGRY LIKE THIS!!).

Hubby does, explaining she's still upset that I moved away, and that I have to understand that she had had 2 failed marriages and she's single so she's just jealous.

So now it all begins (or ends depending on how you look at it)

So I am officially a FOOTBALL WIDOW.
The hubby and the BIL have ordered NFL Sunday ticket , which to me means that on Sundays and Mondays I will be ignored. I have come to terms with this.
They are both HUGE football fans and I am WELL AWARE that the first game is tonight.
What will I do with myself? I mean these boys LOVE football so much that even if I walked around naked neither would notice (not that I would do that) However I do get away with more during football season.
I tell him I am bored and he tells me to go shopping, which of coarse I do and then when I come home with all my buys he just looks at me and sighs.... Ha ha he feels guilty so I can buy shoes and purses... (I think I secretly LIKE this football season)

So football season begins.
I should start a club. Football widow club. Sundays for coffee anyone?

Now I know for sure

That everyone at work hates me.
But that's ok. I dislike most of them too.
Maybe they are still mad I got "superstar" fired.
Maybe they are mad that they payed there dues and I step on there toes (actually to be honest I dance all over them).

How do I know?

There are 5 of us in one office.

One of the girls got engaged over a week ago

I found out by asking when I saw the ring???

Small thing, yeah but we are women, all women. Seems strange everyone would know but me

And then whisper about it when I ask, as if I was supposed to know

Fuck them Ha ha it's entertaining really

Open for discussion~

Cold case.
Did anyone else see it Sunday Night? Ok I'll sum up one part of it. (this was not the basis of the show it was a little "side" thing that happened within the show)

One detective (female) mentions that she has notices that there is a man at the park where her daughter plays and he REALLY creeps her out. She says he's always there and he is pretending to read a book, but is really watching the children.
He tells her that he will look into it, and goes to the park. There is a man sitting there in the park on a bench with a book watching the kids. He approaches him and sits on the bench with him.
"So which child is yours?"
"No I am just reading, I am here alone"
"We'll I would pick the one in the blue t-shirt, he's a bit of a loner and has no friends. It looks like you would prefer the little blond boy but he's too athletic and popular so there would be no way you could without a big fight"
The man just stares back at him.
The detective then walks behind the bench and grabs the man by the throat and tells him NEVER to come back her again.
The female detective reports that the man was gone for only one day and now he was back.
The detective goes back to the park and finds the man talking to a young boy.
He then proceeds to kick the shit out of the man.

Discussion ensues.

Me "I would have killed him!!"
Hubby "that's not right, technically he has done nothing wrong"
Me" I know that's why the detective beat the shit outta the guy because he knew that he could not arrest him on "suspicion of wanting to molest a child"
Hubby " Its still not right, Fucked up but not right"
Me "So if that was your child, your boy or girl that this strange man was talking to your telling me you would not have killed them?"
Hubby "No, I would have MADE HIM UNDERSTAND that he was never to come back"
Me "that's what the detective did, what if you had done the same thing and came back to the park the next day and that man was talking to your 7 year old daughter, or 7 year old son, your telling me you would be "calm" and collected.
He turns to me "Yeah your right I would probably fucking kill him, or maybe not kill him, just maim him for the rest of his life and prevent him from ever using his cock again"

I feel REALLY strongly about this matter and I usually do not get into politics and what's right ect. But I do believe that ANYONE who hurts or molests a child should be put to death.
A strong opinon I know but even the courts have proved that child molesters are UNTREATABLE and 80% re-offend. If this is proven then why do the courts let these fucking sicos out? 80% is a HUGE number of people walking the streets waiting to re-offend.
This whole thing makes me sick! Its so IMPORTANT to know and regularly check the sex offender lists in your areas.

You can check your list for your state her FBI Sex Offender Registry



And I would not steer you wrong. The titles say "intellectual thriller"
The plot was bad, the acting was bad...

0 * out of 5...

Save your money don't even rent it. Wait till its on cable. (Serious THAT BAD)
You can read more BAD reviews about it at Rotten Tomatoes

An Idea that is so much bigger than any of us know

So there is this guy, who had an idea that is so big.
He put out a call to arms for 2,996 bloggers. That on the anniversary of September 11th to remember the lives of all the people killed in the terrorist attack on the US.

The goal is that on 9/11 all the bloggers that have been assigned to a victim will have a tribute post for them on there blog.

I have been assigned victim #538. Read more about it HERE

He has just posted that ALL 2,996 victims have been assigned. I went through the list (through tears) I caught lots of names of people I recognize in our blog community.

Its good to be part of something that is bigger than you are.
