Sexy Saturday Stuff

1. When do you feel that you are at your sexiest?
Um.  Really?  You think I'm sexy?  I haven't felt very sexy lately.. Thanks for telling me that!  Oh.  Wait.  Were you talking to me?  You weren't?  Fine.... Dammit...

2. What's your favorite magazine? Why?
I love Real Simple.  Because it's real.  And simple.  And real simple.  Yeah.  That's why. 

3. What’s something you do more quickly than most people? 
Take tests.  I don't know what it is.  The only test I ever had a problem with was that little pink line one.  Whoops!  

4. When do you first remember using a computer? 
In the late 80's?  Come on.  I'm old.  Don't ask me shit like that.  I remember going on the internet - and all sites had an .edu at the end.  How's that?

5. Who is the craziest person in your family? 
Snort.... seriously?

6. What one thing are you craving today? 
Walls that are straight.  My builder sucks.  My walls aren't level.  

7. What is your favorite thing to spend money on? 

8. What’s the part of your morning you least look forward to every day? 
Monday through Friday?  Going to work.  It's brutal.  If I were a lazy slug, I'd be happy as a clam - but I'm not.  So I'm miserable.  

9. What are some rules you have for yourself that don’t really make much sense? 
Always come home with the person you went with.  Trust me.  It works.

My day today...

So far?

So far I’ve filled tray #1. Stamped yesterday’s mail. Dropped off today’s mail.  There may be some mail up on the counter waiting for me to come and stamp it.

Listed my "old" Kitchen Aid on Craigslist for $175 (that’s a good deal, isn’t it?)  I got  a brand spankin' new one last weekend in a silent auction.  It's pink.  I like pink. 

Now I’m debating what to update my facebook status to.

Not sure if I've posted about this, but in October I stopped paying my mortgage.  My payment was raised to such an amount because of an escrow shortage that I couldn't afford it.  I'd been asking to refinance for almost a year, and because I hadn't graduated and the big "we don't know how much your student loan payment is going to be" - they wouldn't do it.  But get this - if I'd gone to law school and deferred the loans for another 3 years?  Then they would have. 
Anyway.  I applied for a modification because it was just too much.  They said no.  Apparently I had $36/month extra.  Really?  Where's that?  I was also told that it'd be easier to get approved if I was 60 days behind.
So I just kept paying it late.  Then applied for another modification.  They said no.  Apparently I wasn't behind enough.   Now I'm told I need to be 90 days late for Rural Development (USDA - who the loan is through) to approve it.  Mind you - at this point, I'm like 82 days late? 
So I stop paying it. 
I continue to pay my other bills.  They're not late.  They're all caught up now!  Because when you stop paying your mortgage - you have ALL sorts of money that you can pay stuff with.  Who knew?
Anyway.... Yesterday?  I get a call from the bank.  Apparently, they've approved my THIRD request for modification.  They waive all late fees.  I get a 3.75% interest rate instead of the 6.25 that I had.  My payment goes down $300.  Yup.  $300.00.  Isn't that fabulous?  It's too bad that it only took four months of NOT paying it to get them to work with me.  And people wonder what's wrong with the banking system? 

Now, because it's not going into foreclosure?  I have to finish painting.  Dammit.  LOL

Happy Friday!

Saturday 9 - Our House

Our House play along - here

1. I read that Bud Weiser & Kathy moved into their new house! When was the las time you moved? Where to?
Well congrats to Buddy Weiser and not-me-Kathy!  The last time I moved was from a rental into my new house that we'll be moving out of within the next few months to move back east to God knows where.  I could be living on the Highway to Hell for all I know.  It feels like it sometimes....
2. If they were making a Hall of Fame for the blogosphere, name a blogger or two who you think should make the list. Why?

Oh, I love me some dirty words - you can get plenty of them here - plus she's interesting...  I like her.  Another one - even if you don't read her stuff, which you should, she lives in a beautiful place..  check out Pseudo here..
3. What are couple of funny things you remember your parents saying? (Like, “They're starving there in China, so finish what you've got.” - John Lennon) Do you say them to your kids?

Your face will freeze like that.. There are starving children in India.. stuff like that.  Oh, wait - "get out of the house and go talk to Mr Kibby at the bank".. Sure Mom, I'll go hang with the pedophile AGAIN....4. What is something that has happened to you that you would consider a miracle?

I could be totally sappy here and say my son - but I won't.  A miracle... miracle... that I never killed myself or anyone else in my drinking & driving days - way back when I used to work 3-11 and then go hang out at the secret cop bar until 6AM and then drive home.  Now that - THAT was a miracle. 
5. What is it too late for?
Having any more kids.  I'd have to find a willing penis.  And then get to know it.  And by the time I'd trust them enough - I'd be 95.  So forget it.  No more babies for me - unless I adopt.  And then, really, how the hell am I supposed to take care of a newborn by myself again??  Really.  I don't like this question. 

6. What do you try to stay away from?

Trouble.  But for some reason???  It seems to always find me.  I have NO idea how. 

7. When you get into a disagreement or fight, how often are you the first to apologize?

When I'm wrong - which isn't often, let me tell you - I'll apologize first. 
8. Tell us about a current issue that you’re unhappy with.

The fact that a letter was mailed to me via another address on January 23rd - and that person then sat on it for a week before forwarding it to me.  Passive-agressive much? 

9. How often do you update your blog/site and why?

Whenever I feel like it - sometimes once a day, sometimes once a week.  Sometimes more or less often than that.  What's it to you?  There are a lot of personal questions here...

People I want to punch in the face....


- myself, sometimes.  Especially today.  No supervisors so I brought a book.  Janet Evanovich's "Explosive Eighteen".  Start reading it, realize that I never read "Smokin' Seventeen".. Whatthefuckever...  Fine.  I'll go to the library.

- P at work.  Just for being dumb. Really dumb.  And someone actually gave her a Masters Degree?  Really??

- S at work.  Same thing.  Only she's obnoxious about it - and for some reason has diarrhea of the mouth lately.  At least once a day I have to save someone from her by calling them from my cell and feigning some sort of disaster..

 - people that can't drive.  Get the hell out of my way, moron.

- Stupid people.  no.  Really.  Twice.  Just because they're f'ing dumb.   And then even another time for those that reproduce and further the stupidity in their spawn....

- my son's father.  Just because and on principle.  And then the rest of his family, too (that know about the boy and ignore his existence).  Because they're all dumb.  Or stupid.  Or both. 

-  ALS.  I'd like to punch it in the face for invading my brother's body.  if it had a face, that is.   Stupid ALS. 

 - Rich people.  They' all crazy.  And don't share.  I miss when I was rich......

Enough for today..
