Friday Fill-Ins

Click here to play along! we go!

1. How in the world did I end up in MICHIGAN of all places?

2. My whole life is in front of me. What am I going to do with it?

3. Life's a fickle bitch.  Don't piss her off, or she will send the karma train to run your ass over.. ;-)

4. Not sure that I've ever had a picnic lunch. But it sounds like a lovely idea!

5. That was where we you know, that one time - up in the woods.. when those kids came by?  LOLOLOLOLOL

6. There is nowhere that I think of as "our place".  There is no "our" right now in my life.  I consider my house *my* place though!  :)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a retirement party, tomorrow my plans include a vendor event and Sunday, I want to chillax!!


So language. Sign language is the first language for one of my neighbors. She’s a cute little thing, and communicates by writing texts on her phone or walking around with a piece of paper and a pen. She’s very sweet and also communicates on facebook – her every move just about. But I figure that’s her way of communicating with people, so I just don’t let it bother me or think too much about it.

Last night I had a chocolate/dip party. I’m now a rep for both companies, and while the chocolate is very tasty – it’s also not cheap. It’s good chocolate. So my friend shows up with her two (both under 10) kids in tow, and they proceed to eat almost half a plate of brownies. Cut up very small – because this is the good stuff. I don’t say anything – because she’s cute. Her kids are cute. Until the boy opens his mouth. He asks if I have cookies. I tell him no. He demands something else, I tell him no. He demands a drink. I tell him that I have water. He says “I HATE WATER” and proceeds to cross his arms and take a defensive stance in front of me. I offer milk…. “I HATE MILK”.. well, what do you like then? ROOT BEER. I don’t have root beer. I have milk. I HATE MILK. What would you like? ROOT BEER. I don’t have root beer. And this goes on for a bit. Now his mother, being deaf – is completely oblivious to what is going on and how rude her son is being. He tells me that he hates EVERYTHING in my house, including the colors on my walls. I send him upstairs to play with my son and tell him before he goes up that if he comes down saying he hates my son, then he’s done at my house. He goes up, comes right back down and announces “I HATE JOSH” with a smirk. I tell him he’s done and needs to leave. At this point, the mother’s boyfriend is looking for her and she needs to get home. Then he’s leaving, and asks me my name and I give him a fake name and he yells “I HATE FAKE NAME”…

The little shit.  I refrained from bad language when he was in my house.  But oh, I wanted to smack the shit out of the little fucker. 

Tell me - How do you tell someone that their kid is rude??? He was BEYOND rude, and just had no manners whatsoever.

Do I tell her?   What would you do??

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


is very boring lately.  Which isn't really a bad thing, but I hate boring.  It's so... well.... boring

I've been working at a "new" job since June.  I'm not quite sure why they hired me, because my skill level is a lot higher than what this job demands.  So as a result, I'm sitting half the day doing things that just take up time.  Like... oh.... writing a blog post.  Or putting together catalogs for chocolate parties.  Yes, that's right.  Chocolate.  Parties.  Two words that you never thought you'd see together, right?  lol

I finally got a court date.  October 4th.  Which happens to be right before the baby daddy's birthday.

The interesting readers seem to have tapered off, maybe they got the information they were looking for?  In any case, they never contacted me.  Which is really too bad, because I think everyone has a right to the whole story.  Which I'm sure is somewhere in between mine and his, but anyway.  Maybe they're smart and figured it all out for themselves? 

School starts on the 6th.  I'm going to officially be the mother of a high-schooler.  Yikes!  But I guess that's funny considering that people I went to high school with are grandparents.  Holy shit, I don't feel that old.  I'm not that old.  I'm not, dammit!!  LOL

Happy Hump Day.  I'm off to find some work to do :)

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Saturday 9 - but wait! It's Sunday, dammit!

Meh... so I'm off by a day :)

Hope everyone is well.  I stopped the other day and just relaxed... and realized that life has been pretty busy lately.  Which is good.  But more relaxation needs to be done.  After exercise.  Must exercise first.  Or walk.  Walking is good.  Yeah.  Walking.  LOL

Anywhooo... here's a meme..  I guess these are easier than coming up with post ideas.  I'm lazy.  Wait.  Exercise.  Must.  Exercise. 

1. In a relationship, have you ever hung in even when you knew for sure it was over?
* More than once.  The last time was because my son absolutely adored him.  I'll never make that mistake again - he hurt my son very much (never said goodbye or anything), and for that I felt responsible. 

2. If you had the ability to perpetually alleviate any pain on your body, what would it be?
* Oh my spine.  I have a ruptured disc in my neck, and perpetual back problems.  I would love to have a spine transplant.  Yeah.  Gimme a new one :)

3. What place would you visit if money were no object?
*Hmmmm.... I'd love to see Germany/Switzerland/Luxembourg - that whole Rhineland area. 

4. What is one thing you would love to change about yourself?
*My inability to shut up sometimes. 

5. Do you think your parents were too strict growing up?
*My mother was a bit overboard at times.  I told her once that they have support groups now for people like her - she didn't quite catch the humor in that...  But I never got into much trouble - so how can I complain, really?

6. In general, how many old friends do you have that you talk to at least once a year?
*Old, age-wise, or old as in I've known them forever?   I have many of both, and talk to them all the time! 

7. What was the last compliment you received?
*I was told last night that I looked like I was 27.  Granted she was only 12, but I love her anyway.. LOL

8. Have you ever told someone you loved them but didn't really mean it?
*Sigh... haven't we all?  But the worst thing is finding out that someone told you that and never meant it. 

9. In your opinion, would it be harder to lose someone close to you more as a child or harder as an adult?
*Kids don't understand loss, really.  They just know that the person has gone away.  I've experienced loss of grandparents as a child, and loss of people as an adult.  I have to say - as an adult it's devastating if you're really close to them.  So as a kid?  Much easier.

Friday! Yay!

OK - well that interesting visitor issue seems to have stopped.  Nothing like a little shout out to make peeps disappear... LOL

I haven't done a Friday Fill-In for a while... so... we go!

1. The only question is "would you like the red or white sangria?".

2. There aren't enough hours in one day to get all my stuff done.

3. Three things on my desk: coffee, iPod touch, tweezers (don't ask LOL).

4. Re-doing the birthday list @ work is the one thing I HAVE to do today!

5. I love playing with babies.  there's nothing like a belly laugh from a little one. 

6.Too much perfume overwhelms the senses.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to cleaning student houseing for the extra $$ and then SLEEP, tomorrow my plans include more cleaning and Sunday, I want to lie in the hammock and read my book :)!

Friday fun time :)

Pssssssst... hey...

you there... yes.  you..  

What is it you're looking for?  Seriously.  You keep coming back.  You do searches under "putz".. you email links to other people. If you click on the label "putz" a lot of posts come up that maybe you should read that might answer some questions. 
But seriously.  Come on.  It's obvious which house you're from - but as to who in that house remains a mystery.  What is it?  Do you have questions?  Ask them!  Comments?  Make 'em!  I'm a nice person - really - in spite of what - if anything - you've been told (by a pathological liar, so keep that in mind).  I'm more than happy to answer questions.  Just ask.  Here's my email - 

Wouldn't life be much easier if you just asked whatever it is that you're looking for?

Memememememememe time!

I haven't done one of these in ages, my house needs to be cleaned, and I'm procrastinating... so here goes.  And if you're reading this - consider yourself tagged :)

1. When showering, do you start the water and then get in, or get in then start the water?
~ start the water, let it warm up and then get in!

2. Have you ever showered with someone of the opposite sex?
~ I'm 45 years old.  What do you think?  Duh....

3. Were you ever been forced to shower with one of your siblings?
~ No, but I was forced to take a tub with my brother Bob when he was a toddler.  That stopped when he pooped into the tub and called it a boat.  I forever refused to do it again.

4. Have you ever dropped your soap on your foot?
~ Again, I'm 45.  Really?

5. How old do people say you look?
~  Younger than 45

6. How old do you act?
~ Certainly not 45 - that was old when I was young.  I'm not old!

7. What’s the last song you sang?
~ I don't know.  Would you like me to sing one now?  Any requests?

8. Have you recently become a member of anything?
~ UAW through work.  Does that count? 

9. What are your plans for next weekend?
~ Not sure yet - you offering something?

10. Do you kiss with your eyes open or closed?
~ both..  I like to know what's going on around me..

11. Whats the sexiest thing about Sarah Palin?
~ Seriously?  What the hell kind of question is THAT??

12. Who’s the sexiest famous woman alive?
~ According to my 14 year old, Angelina Jolie.  Because she has the best boobs, apparently..

13. Who’s the sexiest famous man alive?
~  Ahhhhhhhhh there are too many to list...  I could post pictures if you like?

14. Does your family have a crazy uncle?
~  A few of them.  Some are still with us, some have passed on.  There was a certified crazy aunt or two too!

15. Have you ever smuggled something into another country?
~ Booze.  From Canada.  So shoot me.  It's not like I went for the Cuban cigars or anything.

16. Do you live in a city with a good sports team?
~ I'm *FROM* a city with some GREAT sports teams!  Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins and Celtics..  (and they're my favorites, in order)

17. What is the most unusual?
~  Most unusual what?  Food?  Body Part?  Thing on my desk?  Too vague, meme, too vague..

18. How do feel about the Goth people?
~ To each their own.  I don't purport to know everything about everyone else's beliefs, and don't expect everyone to know mine.  I don't judge.  Unless you're a bad speller, and then, I'll admit - I do.

19. Can you fix or your significant other your own car?
~ Depends.  I can change my own oil.  Replace a bulb or a windshield wiper.  But for the life of me, I cannot get the damn stuck CD's out of my CD player!  Hint - don't ever play CD's with labels on them in a Bose system.  It will fuck it up.

This weekend

Let the games begin....

We're once again cleaning student housing for the next 2 weeks.  I'm always left shaking my head at the end because of a couple of reasons.  1 - you wouldn't believe what these kids leave behind - because they have no concept of money or the cost of things - last year?  Numerous dorm fridges, a Kirby vacuum cleaner, and lots and lots of kitchen stuff.  I get my best deals the next two weeks :)  2?  The filth that these kids live in.  We come in - work our asses off and get paid well for it - but it's amazing how kids will live.  One place last year had 3 full baths.  So apparently when someone threw up in one of the tubs, that was OK - because they just left it and used the other 2.  Seriously?  That's nasty.  One stove/oven took me over 4 hours to scrub and it still looked disgusting.  I wish the parents that come in at the beginning of the year, complaining about how their little angels couldn't possibly move in until *that* baseboard is cleaned - would come back at the end of the year and see how their angel has turned into a little pig.    Ugh.


Sunday my son's brother gets married.  It's too bad he doesn't know about his little brother, because he's kind of a hoot.   It's a shame that stupid adults make dumb decisions based on their own selfish needs instead of what is best for their kids.  But that will all change eventually.  No, I didn't send a gift from "your brother Josh" - although I did think about it LOL..  That wouldn't have been fair to the happy couple.  And that's what Sunday is all about - not about the parents, the kids, or anything else - it's about them.  So Congratulations Carly and Brian - from your baby brother's baby mama.  No drama.  LOL

What a great week last week was.  Got to see some family, friends and get some quality time on the beach.  I <3 the beach.  Especially when it's sunny. 

I'm kind of curious who from the Brockton, MA area keeps reading the blog.  Someone from Braintree, MA, too.  Come out come out, wherever you are!  What are you looking for, anything in particular?    Have questions?  Feel free to ask.  Comments?  Feel free to leave 'em.   Want to ask/comment in private?  Feel free to shoot me an email.   I'll make it easy -

Here's a hint, though - read some of the archives :)

Peace out.
