Happy Halloween Dingleberries!  It's going to be an awesome night, I just know it! 
Looking at this picture I'm remembering my anger from losing 2 hats over the weekend, very very frustrating.  I'm hopeful to find those as soon as I have time to turn the house upside down and see if I can find it.
Fingers Crossed peoples!

Not much going on today. I'm thinking ahead and blogging now, because I just know I won't do it later, then I will be behind and it's just annoying.  Work is pretty much slow.  No major calls coming in and no one needing much towed today, guess they took off work to go Trick or Treating. Lucky asshats!  I need another day off, I'm patiently waiting for Thanksgiving so I can take some much needed days off. Ahhh to relax, maybe!

I hope everyone has an awesome Halloween, don't eat any poison candy and don't get your bag snatched.  We're going to have a blast, all while trying to stay warm, because it's retarded cold here lately.  UGH!

Day 293-295, 365 Days of 2011

Happy Sunday Dingleberries
It was a loverly weekend this weekend, the constant reminders of what all is going on aside, it was so nice to get out with friends and hit up a family gathering today.  Friday was a little bumpy, some bullshit went down and I left work early to avoid everything.  Got the deposit paid for the power for the new apartment which I am excited to say will be moving into around the 10th.  Awesome!

So, lets get this party started being as I need to hand write a letter in response to one my dearest friend sent me over the weekend! I know, handwritten letters. Its been a while and I'm actually glad it came because I have been wanting to hand write a letter for some time.

Day 293
Friday, October 28th, 2011
Friday, as I said was a shittastic day. Nothing new there for the week, but it's OK. It was nice to take off from the place that was giving me no comfort what so ever and get off to see people that really wanted to see me. It was, dare I say, NICE!  It all ended well though and Mr. Monkey Butt, Pokey and myself went out for some dinner, finally choosing Red Robin where we were fortunate to see one of my favorite girlfriends. Looking forward to Trick or Treating with her and her dahlin daughter on Halloween ::happy dances::

Day 294
Saturday, October 29th, 2011
Wellp, here we have a picture of Pokey. I took quite a few pictures on our outing today but FAILED at taking one of myself.  hahaha... Not sure if any were taken at the awesome partay we attended tonight either. It was a lot of fun.  Great time to play by the fire, drink on a few drinks and chat with some of my other favorite peoples.  A lot of fun!  Glad to have done it. It was nice to get out again and just try and have a good time.  Awesomeness and although I didn't apply much thought or anything else to my "costume"  I simply wore items of clothing that I don't wear very often. It worked out, a few people said I even looked completely different in my wig!  Cools.

Day 295
Sunday, October 30th, 2011
Happy Sunday!  That's a creepy fucking mask isn't it?  Eeeep!
Here I sit, playing catchup with blogging after an oh so tasty dinner and an awesome outing with the family. My cousin hosted a fun Halloween party for the kiddies today and I think it's safe to say they had a blast. Lots of candy and hayrides. They lerved it and it was nice to get out, again, with the people I lerve.
But, here I sit. I'm tired and still plenty to do, fun fun fun.  I shall get it all done though and tomorrow will be AWESOME!
It's trick or treat day tomorrow and I can't wait to see my girl and her daughter.  Pokey is dressing up as a witch tomorrow and I must admit its fucking awesome to think about. She has never gone as something other than a princess or fairy or something cute and adorable like that and here we sit, all thanks to Grandma and my  Pokey is going to rawk a witch tomorrow.  Awesomeness!  

Cya tomorrow (I hope) Have an awesome Monday!

Day 292, 365 days of 2011

Thursday, October 27th, 2011
Today was a better day Dingleberries, I slept like shit and woke up late but none of that mattered. About half way to work I WOKE UP and felt OK. Today was less shitty. I'm glad for that.  Things need to brighten up around here and it won't happen unless I make it happen.   I guess I made my uncles wife eat her words today, felt a little bad when mom told me she sounded upset about it. But the dumb bish was talking to my Mom about all these HORROR stories with chemo and radiation and cancer and needless to say, I was pissed. I emailed her today, nicely of course and spoke my piece. She called and said she was sorry before I got home and I feel better! 
 I'm hope to get an awesome tattoo this weekend, maybe?
We've got parties, as I've mentioned!
Tomorrow is Friday!
I need to enjoy this weekend, to in no way be in any hurry, to just...RELAX.  As I hear her screaming from across the house for me to look in the fundraiser book, GAH!  School stores, fall pictures, fundraisers. It's making me BONKERS! lolz.
I hope all was well for everyone today. Please forgive me for my slackness on reading blogs, I'm trying. I really am. I read a few today, I promise!

Thursday's Monkey Butt

Happy Thursday Dingleberries, I apologize for the dark picture, but this week we're being honored with the presence of Mr. Sock Monkey.  He came to dinner at Chili's with us the other night and let me tell you he has some wonderful jokes and just look at those ears.
How could we not love him as much as Pokey does?! 

Enjoy and have an awesome day! 

It has hit home...

Updaters, again. You all may get sick of me here shortly.  So, yesterday Mom had the appointment with the surgeon. I assume it went well, Mom and Dad didn't fill me in much on exactly what was said or done. As of right now, they are calling her a stage 2 cancer.  The cancer has spread to the lymph nodes as well as the chest tissue. UGH! 

So first things first.... She has an appointment in a couple of weeks for chemo. From what she is telling me now, they are starting with this in order to shrink the cancer and have a better chance of removing it all when they do surgery. 

Keep praying people, this shit ain't over till the fat lady sings!

Day 291, 365 days of 2011

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011
Happy Wednesday Dingleberries. 
For those of you who have been following my hit home posts, you all know.  There is more to come, I will post on it tomorrow.  Just to keep it going.  It's going to be shittastic! But it's going to be OK!
Today was, well shitty. 
Here's to hoping the week is better anyways. 2 parties for the weekend, will see all of my favorite ladies over the weekend and I'm so excited! 
Something to look forward to right?
There was a bit of good that happened today. Lets not go public with it but it's safe to say he got what he deserved, Tim knows what I'm talking about, lolz.
Have a great Thursday Dingleberries. 

It has hit home....

Our breast cancer scare has officially taken a violent shove into reality.  For you dear Dingleberries waiting for the results, my Mom has a confirmed case of breast cancer. It's heart wrenching, nerve shattering and sadly true.  I feel as though I'm dying inside, dying of fear, of the unknown.  It's  a very stressful time if you ask me.  I went home yesterday and talked to my Mom.  They will do surgery, she is meeting with the surgeon today and they will do chemo and radiation as well, not today of course. In regards to stage and the unknown things there, they say they won't know until it's out.  She has cancer in the lymphnode they did a biopsy on as well. I'm so lost, I don't know anything about this stuff. All I want to know is that my Mom is OK.  That's all that matters.  I want to wake from this nightmare, I really do.  Prayers pray because we need all we can get right now.  She's a fighter and she's strong. Expect more updates!

Day 289 and 290, 365 days of 2011

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Happy Monday?  Well at least I was able to get away from that ringing cell phone. Lack of sleep and bright and early I made it to work today. It was busy as hello, with all the impounds and accidents over the weekend. Needless to say there wasn't a moment I wasn't busy at work, with the exception of the few minutes I took for myself and ran out for lunch. Go me!  Go me!

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

With the stress of today... Well it as just a Tuesday.  I slept until 850 this morning. I'm posta be at work at 830 and Pokeys late bell at school rings about 850.  Yea, we were late.  Ugh!  That made the day...short. I didn't get too much shit from the boss man and managed to stay busy throughout the day, mostly.  Glad it ended though. Mom didn't want to call and tell me the news from the Dr call today.  No fear Dingleberries, I've every intention of telling you my news tomorrow dearest friends. To carry on my series as planned.  :)  I hope you all had better days than the one I've had and look forward to staying caught up this week.  Wish me luck!

Didn't think that would ever hit home?

Thursday, October 20th, 2011
 I sat in my car on my way home from work.  The traffic was nothing out of the ordinary. Mr. Monkey Butt had gotten done with work early and was on his way to my house, we were to have dinner.  I felt something, something wrong.  It felt like something was terribly wrong.  That it wasn’t OK.   I kept telling myself it’s me it’s me. There is something wrong with me. A gut instinct I guess, sadly I’m one who follows and believes in those. I think that first gut instinct is always right.  I fought it down and trying to distract myself I turned the songs up and sang alone. I stopped into the nail salon and had them rip my eyebrows out. It had already been a terrible day. Broken toes and stomach pain, I just wanted to go home. But what is this feeling?  

When I got home I asked Mom how her Dr appointment went.

I’d almost forgotten she had called me at work to tell me she was going to the Dr. We didn’t get into much on the phone, me being at work and more than one wasted attempt to return her call ate up the few minutes I had to call. 

She was finally going to go to the Dr and have the lump under her breast checked out. To be honest, I’d almost forgotten about that as well. She mentioned it and brought it to my attention around the time of the brain aneurysm and without the excitement and stress it just got lost in there somewhere.  What she neglected to tell me was exactly how big it had gotten. She was going to the Dr because it was hurting her!  

Mom told me they thought it was cancer.

They had done their mammograms and ultra scans.  Found a mass in her breast as well as running along under her underarm area.  Biopsy to come and we wait.... I hate waiting.

Didn't think that would ever hit home.

Music for a Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Dingleberries,

And here we go, another Nightmare Before Christmas Song for you all to enjoy. Luckily Halloween is my  Christmas so this is perfect. Have a great day Dingleberries, enjoy the jam!

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Didn't think that would ever hit home?

Late 2010, early 2011 Mom sat us down and told us she had a brain aneurysm.  Shocked and confused we had no idea what this meant. I’d only ever known of brain aneurysms to rupture and cause many medical problems and quite possibly kill its victim.  Stress was high again.  We had no idea what was to happen in the days to come.  Never had we once been through something like that, something involving surgery, nothing of this magnitude. Sure we were strong through epilepsy and MS and allergies and talks of COPD. Sure we knew all of those things, things we had all dealt with together for many years. Things that were just medicated and seemed under control most days.  This was something all new, this was serious, and this was life threatening potentially.  Mother decided she didn’t want to take the chance of sitting with this “time bomb” in her head. She was going to take the steps and have it corrected. “Preventive Maintenance” as I like to call it, very serious indeed. 
Mother survived this ordeal. Mother went into that surgery like Super Man. Nothing would conquer her and get her down.  After days in the hospital, her face swollen and purple, we thanked everything good that she was alive and better and we wouldn’t have to worry about this problem any more.  I remember when we received word she was in recovery and they would let us know when she would be taken upstairs. We met the lady in the hall and she told us quietly if we hurried we could see her get off the elevator. I remember the excitement I felt knowing that I would soon be seeing my Mom.  She rolled out of that elevator and I shoved my sister in front of me to see her. My Sister wasn’t there that morning to see her off. To hug her and tell her she loved her just in case the worst happened.  Seeing them cry and my Dad so happy to see her just as I was. She looked like hell.  Her face already swollen and the cut was gruesome. But she was there, she was alive and she was beautiful.
The surgeon released mother from her care months later.  She has recently regained most of her old ability to chew her food, her temple is slightly caved in and she can feel the screws and plates through her thin skin, the scar mostly covered by the hair that is growing back.  She can no longer have an MRI, which was always required to check on her lesions caused by MS. If anything slips or leaks, she could very possibly have a stroke and there is no way for them to scan and check that everything is OK with out a risk of the machine sending metal fragments from her new plate into her brain.

Never thought this would hit home…

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

Happy Sunday Dingleberries. It was a lovely day, with the exception of getting up this morning, going outside for a smoke and finding my favorite hat laying outside chewed up.  UGH!  I lerved that hat more than any other hat. Lucky, I found this adorable purple one at Target and Mr. Monkey Butts sweet Mom also brought me a new one on her adventures out shopping!!  Awes. It's just as adorable as this one, maybe even a little more so!  Lerve it!
After shopping we went to the pumpkin patch, finally as Pokey would say. It was a lot of overblown hooplah that was full of ohmygawd this place is a nightmare.  It's hard to go places like this with a budget with kids, they had bouncy things, petting zoos, pony rides and haunted house.  We made it out with only buying said pumpkin above.  Lucky, that's what I am.  Also bought a few of those wee bit pumpkins that are oh so adorable. I lerve Halloween!  It's like my Xmas!
Our carved pumpkin. It's the adorable ghost stencil from the book that came with the carving kit. Pokey did an AWESOME job didn't she!
Goodnight Dingleberries and cya tomorrow.  I'm patting myself on the back right now because I managed to blog all weekend again. Hopefully Mr Monkey Butt isn't feeling too neglected!  <3

Didn't think that would ever hit home?

Mother has severe allergies; she has nose spray and inhalers. She has asthma and to be honest, I’m not sure what she ISN’T allergic to.  Last year or so an a/c unit too big for her area created an awful mold sending her into a new level of asthma and allergies.  She believed she would die.  Doctors said it was COPD.  Tears were shed, stress levels rose and then Mom got better.  With steroids and medicines, she got better. Her lungs got better and Mom does NOT have COPD.

Didn’t think that would ever hit home….

Day 287, 365 days of 2011

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Look at me go, I'm blogging on a Saturday. I managed to brang my computer with me on my weekend away again :)  I'm happy to be spending time with Mr Monkey Butt and we are planning to carve a pumpkin tomorrow!  It should be a lot of fun! 
I hope everyone had a wondermus Saturday!  We were playing around the house before coming down to see Mr. Monkey Butt. Dad brought in a dead dear, OMG I was shocked. Dad went hunting this morning after many a year of not doing so and didn't come back until he killed something I guess. Pretty yuck if you asked me, but Mom was having no part of chopping something called a back strap up,sooo that was my job!  lolz.  Very weird experience if you ask me!  Definitely a day to remember though.  We carved pumpkins with Nana and my niece. It was fun until the fits came and the fun ended!
Stay tuned for my next post on my series.
Here's to hoping tomorrow will be supah awesome for us and everyone else!
Goodnight Dingleberries!

Day 286, 365 Days of 2011

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Well hello Friday and I'm glad to see you, well kinda... 
So let's do a recap really quick tonight.
Monday, broken door handle on my car, which I have finally named and sure it isn't funny but it made me giggle. I've finally named my car, Tina!
There she is, it's a pic from a different post, but whatever. You get the idea.  So how did I come up with the name Tina you ask?   That's easy, she has taken a beaten, has no straight panel on her and sings like shit at times.  Yes, that's it, she has been named after Tina Turner.  Tina Turner was awesome in Beyond Thunderdome, or I thought so anyway and though I never really listened to much of her music, Ike should not have beat her the way he did at times, sorry arse mofo!
So there ya have it, she has a name. I'm so proud of myself.

So where was I. 
broken door handle.
broken fingernail. Not the normal owchie that broke. Oh hell no, it broke so very low that the nerve was exposed under it and anyone with longish fingernails knows just how much that Effn sucks!
Broken toe.  Or what I thought was a broken toe.  Actually wasn't broken at all, I don't think, and is actually not so purple and not so painful today, Friday!
Mom tells me that they think she has breast cancer, kill me now
Mom's going to the Dr for her biopsy.  Kill me now!  We must wait until Tuesday for the results. They took a sample from her breast of course and under her arm.
Lookie it's Friday, I've recapped all the shittastic things from this week and sadly until they tell me something good on Tuesday it's going to be a shittastic weekend as well. I'm working all weekend and all week I've seen Mr Monkey Butt about 3 times and only briefly.  Here's to hoping tomorrow is another slow day for work and Mr Monkey Butt doesn't work too late. 
I've babbled enough and probably jinxed myself with that last sentence. 
Go figure,
Well Dingleberries, I hope you're Friday was good and your week was better than mine. I shall attempt to stay caught up this weekend, being as there isn't much else on the agenda. Sleep well for those still sleeping and have an awesome Saturday, check out my new posts and enjoy!

Friday's Fabulous Photo

(oh no, don't eat me)

Didn't think that would ever hit home

In the late 90’s, early Millennium Mom came across new health problems.  The early days I do not remember as I was going through my first rebellion. Mom believed she had a stroke.  Her feeling faded and she was having problems with one side of her body.  We had no idea what was happening. She went to Dr appointments and finally, Mom was diagnosed with MS.   We cried and cried.  She now takes a shot every single week, on Sundays, Sunday being her chosen day so that her whole weekend isn’t shot.  Mom feels the effects of her medicine, AVONEX within a few hours of injection. She has her regiment of Tylenol and Ibuprofen, which she takes religiously the night of her shot and the day after. Spending the rest of the time either nauseous or in bed. Mothers foot burns constantly, her legs seem to want to give under her weight most days and she speaks with a slurred speech at times.  Her vision isn't what it use to be and at times her head will hurt for days, she hasn't smelled anything in a very long time.

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Happy Thursday Dingleberries.  I hope you all had a wonderful day. It's definitely been trying for me, but I'm a sucker for suffering inside.  For the news I was unable to say last night, Mom may have breast cancer.  She went in today for a biopsy, they won't have the results in until Tuesday next week. I'm on egg shells until then, just a nervous wreck. But me being a realist, I know whats up and if I'm wrong then Effn A Right!  I plan to do any and everything I can to help raise monies and stuff, being I have to get a second job or sell my soul to the devil, so be it.  She needs the monies!

So I've started a new series, said series will run until A) They say nothing is wrong on Tuesday or B)  You dear Dingleberries will run this ride through my Moms battle against breast cancer with me.  Yes I understand that I won't update every day, but for the next few days I plan on posting what I have so far in regards to her health. Some of you who have been here for a bit know she ran through an aneurysm earlier this year and I'm sharing more to her than that. With hopes that she won't be mad at me for doing so. 

Check it out, also don't forget this weeks Monkey Butt  post. I'm running out  of ideas, so share share share any monkeys you know of <3

Didn't think that would ever hit home?

In the early nineties my Mom had her first epileptic seizure. I remember it to this day, 20 or so years later. I was in bed asleep and all I remember is her boyfriend yelling her name.  We knew there was something wrong. He said get help and we ran and ran as fast as we could to a neighbor’s house to use the phone.  We had no idea what was going on or what else we could do. They went away to the hospital and we stayed with the neighbors. I however do not remember seeing my mother on more than one occasion while she was in the hospital. It’s all blotchy and blurry the time she was gone. 

Mother found out the hard was she had an allergy to Dilantin while in the hospital. 

Mother was diagnosed with epilepsy in the 90’s. 

Didn’t think that would ever hit home….

Today she takes a minimum of two different medications to control her Epilepsy.  One of which, a barbiturate, they are attempting to wean her from and in doing so must compensate and add another.

Thursday's Monkey Butt

Happy Thursday Dingleberries!
Let's see what we have hanging around this week, shall we?
(Ross and Marcel)

Ross had a pet monkey in season one, of course he's cute but if I remember correctly he went psycho as monkeys tend to do with wanting to mate (not much different than humans huh?) and Ross eventually had to get rid of him. 
Definitely  a cutie though.
I haven't watched any Friends since the end of the series, but it was a good show while it lasted! 
Enjoy your Thursday!

Day 284, 365 days of 2011

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Well hello Wednesday, you sucked!  Just sayin' is all.  My pinkie toe may or may not be broken, lost the battle against the kiddie gate this morning.  Very painful!  The only thing I want to do at this point is toss a cup of gasoline on it and throw a match.  I'm hating on the kiddie gate. 

There is more bad news for today but I cannot share that right now. It's safe to say the bad feeling I had on the  way home, that feeling that something is wrong, well that feeling was spotlighted shortly after I got home today.  More bad news, will share with you readers as soon as the OK is given. 

Till tomorrow, I hope your day was wondermus and tomorrow is smashing good.  Goodnight Dingleberries.

Silent Beauty,

My silent beauty stalks me.
She's with me everywhere.
Lingering in the darkness
Leaving me to stare
I search the mirror for her
Her hair long and fair
Her beauty amazes me
How did she get in there?
The looks of joy upon me
I realize we're both here.
She is me,
as I am her.
I am beautiful
Just like her!

Happy Tuesday Dingleberries.
If you hadn't already noticed Ive had what you may call a busy day here with blogging. It was fun though.
-Stayed pretty busy at work.
-It rained...Again..
-Came home and ate an outrageous amount of food for dinner, I was starving and couldn't resist piling on way to much apple cobbler thing. OMG was it tasty!
-Broke the shit out of my finger nail making my bed up, mmmm clean sheets, totally worth it. But damn does it hurt!
-Last but not least, I'm tired as hell and recently stumbled upon an email I didn't know I had from what I can only call a CUNT.  She thought it was a good idea to say something regarding a photo I'd taken of my child and her shorts being too short. Kiss my arse you stupid effn cunt! 
Goodnight folks...
Have an awesome Wednesday!
Don't forget to check out my music for a Tuesday and my randomness post.  Also if you haven't done so already check out hey monkey butt on facebook. It's my new fan page! 
Oh you know you wanna!

365 days of 2011

Happy Monday Dingleberries, I was away from my laptop over the weekend (again) and well it sucked.  I'm going to start taking that thing with me everywhere I go I think. Saves me from missing all the fun and having to play so much catch up on Mondays!  So here we are again, me not blogging over the weekend and now getting to it.  Yarg!
How was your weekend? 

Day 280
Saturday, October 15th, 2011
OMG I love Goodwill. Relax, I didn't purchase that goofy arse hat or anything but I did find 2 awesome new shirts that I just lerve.  :)  We paid the deposit on our soon to be new apartment.  Move in date still listed for early November. It's exciting but stressful, as I'm sure I've said before.  The idea  of getting it all together, paying all the monies and getting what if anything we don't have yet.  It's  a mess and I still hate moving.  Ugh!  Lovely day though.  Gotta lerve Saturdays

Day 281
Sunday, October 16th, 2011
Again, didn't do much today. Spent time with Pokey and Mr. Monkey Butt. We went to the corn maze and only got lost for a few. I got some much needed sun today, it was a nice 80 something degrees outside and it was shall i say AWESOME!  Well it was.  I enjoyed every minute of it and it's just going to get colder and colder this week.  Ugh!  I'm not looking forward to that shiz, but what can I do. Damn I wish I were Mother Nature or something :)

Day 282
Monday, October 17th, 2011
Lucky we are busier today than all of last week. Nothing over whelming, but just busy enough to make the time go by a little quicker. For that I am glad. Still eating peanut butter sammiches for lunch though. Which makes lunch time really suck, but it saves me money and I need as much of that right now as possible.  Damn holidays and moving :)  I'm excited for both.  I'm actually turning in my notice for my last 2 days of vacation this week also ::happy dances::  Taking my last 2 days in November, loverly.  Should be all settled by then (with the move) and well it will be nice!

Day 278
Thursday, October 13th, 2011
Another day I almost forgot to take my picture, this one taken just before the strokes of midnight. Go me! 
Mr. Monkey Butt is...well...crazy!  <3 
Thursday was very boring, very boring indeed.  Almost went crazy myself.  Thank gawd for Anne Rice and Facebook.  Check out Thursday's Monkey Butt Dingleberries.

Day 279
Friday, October 14th, 2011
Happy Friday folks. It's another slow boring day here in the land of towing, but it's sunny out and it's Friday. Effn a right I will take that all day long!  Thanks for all the love and support from my fans and readers lately .  I've been creative these past few months or whatever and it's spilling out into my writing. Not that I'm complaining I hope you are all enjoying it as well. I may be away again for the weekend, but whatevs. I will see what I can work in. I hope you all have a wondermus weekend with whatever you do and hopefully it stays sunny the whole time!

Thursday's Monkey Butt

Happy Thursday Dingleberries :)
The Three Wise Monkeys
 Together they embody the proverbial principle to "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil".
The three monkeys are Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil;
Kikazaru, covering his ears, who hears no evil; and
Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil.
Sometimes there is a fourth monkey depicted with the three others;
the last one, Shizaru, symbolizes the principle of "do no evil".
He may be shown crossing his arms.

I stumbled into the darkness.
Trips and falls consume me.
The lost and empty shell left of my soul.
You're not there,
no where by my side.
Her beauty blinds you.
Stole you away.
She laughs at my sadness,
gains her power from my tears.
The tears I'll never let you see.
That would make you better than me.
I can't find you better then me.
For you are dead to me.
You drank the life from me.
You left me in the dark here.
Lost and confused.
Stumbling with  tears,
those tears I cry for you

Music For a Tuesday

Although this isn't  Lynard Skynard, it's still an awesome cover. 
 It takes me back to the nights I spent sitting at the bar watching a Southern Rock band and their wasted effort at trying to make it big time. They all had their high hopes, but it fizzled and and burned out to nothing.  Just the way it goes. People change as does music.
Needless to say. I LERVE SOME DEFTONES! Lerve some Chino.  I'd totally have his babies if I only could ;)  Im kidding, kinda!
So for your listening pleasure, ENJOY!

Day 276, 365 days of 2011

Happy Tuesday Dingleberries. As you may have read in my last blog, let me live,  I'm on a rant today and everyone with their negative feed these past few weeks has finally taken a toll on my patience. Facebook may kiss my arse for a few days!  It seems impossible at times to ignore all the BS people constantly post on there.  Gah save me!  Enjoy your Tuesday, because I am :)   Oh!  Don't forget to check out my music for a Tuesday post either.  Enjoy! 

Let me Live

I think as humans we come to lose value and appreciation.  The constant drag downs and suffering.  Those I care so dearly for in constant struggle.  Or perhaps this brings them to appreciate more than the rest of us. More than myself. 

I sit back only to piss and moan about the constant groaning and suffering of those I love.  Those who choose not to make their situations better. Sadly I thrive on those who are too weak to make it better. TO take their lives in their own hands and control their worlds.  I make it my point every day to make something better of my situations. To avoid any and all of this constant media whose only goal is to make us feel bad about our lives.

I’m torn and angry right now as my world as I know it is taking shape into something I don’t care to know about. I remember being a child and not knowing and not caring was  what the world was to me.  I know today I must be a grown up, I must get out of bed each morning with the sunshine peaking through the limbs of trees. I must stir my darling daughter from her slumber and we being responsible children make our way into the world, each and every day. There is not always time for that awesome walk or bike ride that takes me away from the world.  Takes me away from the interwebs that I may add are only here to poison my mind with the nonsense I enjoy staying away from, the drama of someone else’s fantasies. To be blunt, the shit I just don’t care to know!  I don’t care who died by lethal injection and how cruel and evil it was. How wrong they were to make an example of said soul. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time?  Well it’s either that or hell ya may have just been guilty. Why should I stress myself over things that are not in my control? Over things, I have nothing to do with?  Perhaps if we make ourselves better people and tend to our own business we wouldn’t be in said wrong places at the wrong time.

I’ve no pity for these fools. I’ve no desire to dish my two cents in the whole thing only to be criticized and cursed for my jaded mind. Perhaps it’s jaded because they have brought me there. I want to live and let live.  Peace is such a bullshit line that for many a decade they have preached and praised for peace but we won’t see the world at peace.  Face it! It’s a bullshit world full of bullshit wars and bullshit lies.  Accept it and move on with your life.  Will ya?  I’m at peace with my life. Sure I would enjoy more money. Sure I would enjoy more life. Sure I would enjoy all of the above and extra days off during the week. But it just isn’t in the cards for me. I’m happy living my life, going to work every day and raising my child to be as hard working and responsible as I am. I can’t sit around at home today working my dream job and living like shit.  It doesn’t sound exciting to me! It doesn’t sound like me at all!  

Here’s an idea.  Enjoy your days and who gives a shit what the world is doing?! They’ve been at it for years and have yet to get it right.  Just let it go! Live your lives and stop preaching and stressing and pushing our lives full of the drama we are trying to avoid!

365 days of 2011

Let's get this going, shall we?  I slacked over the weekend ::slaps head::  Just how it goes, let me say I had a good weekend, until it ended.

Day 272
Friday, October 7th, 2011
Ya know, for some reason I have a feeling Friday was terribly slow and made me nuts.  Hmm, Imagine that! But we did go hang with Mr. Monkey Butt and his parents for  fun night out at Stevie B's.  Who doesn't love cheap craptastic  tasty pizza?

Day 273
Saturday, October 8th, 2011
Oh what a day Saturday was!  Pokey and I went to Sam's with my Mom and niece. It was, dare I say, STRESSFUL.  Something about kids running around the store makes me want to run for the door screaming, pulling at my hair.  We made plans  to go have dinner with Mr. Monkey Butt again though.  Tasty quesadillas and nachos.  YUMMERS!

Day 274
Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Yes Dingleberries, I forgot to take a photo on Sunday.  Don't act so surprised, you've seen it happen before, but this was a good description of how the day went.  Pokey drew a few photos before we went off to Goodwill, for nothing.  She actually drew one of Grandma with a cigarette in her hand ::DOH::  She was like oh lawd.  I think we may have made Pokey feel bad by telling her she shouldn't draw cigarettes, rather than praising her for her detail. 
Gah I suck!!
It was a beautiful photo though, the cigarette aside!  She drew a few and well we basically just spent the family time veggin on the couch watching Jurassic Park. I lerve that movie! Awesome Sunday if you ask me!

Day 275
Monday, October 10th, 2011

Monday..... Monday....Monday...
Very slow day, all 5 calls we had today. I did get some reading done though and am at a point where I just can't put it down once I get started.  I read a little when I got home but then it was time to spend with Pokey, she has testing tomorrow and we have to get ready for all of that fun stuff. Then  realizing I was behind on my blogging, no more time to read tonight.  Must get to bed early and off to work, again, in the morning!  Fun!

Happy Monday Dingleberries. Cya tomorrow and stay tuned for my newest edition to my blogging life.

I shall love always

The waters crash around me.
I sit and stare.
Stare into nothingness.
Endless miles of salt and water.
The tiny fish swim around my toes,
occasional nibbles make me twitch.
Why must she hate us?
Why does she just not care?
To turn ones back and never say goodbye!
What did I do wrong to be shut out?
To have loves and never really received any back.
The lost and pain you've left me with.
The empty shell that remains of me.
As my beloved one  no longer wants,
no longer loves those who love no matter the pain.

Thursday's Monkey 'butt'

Happy Thursday Dingleberries.
 Lets see what we have for today!

The Chinese Zodiac (no, mine doesn't fall in the Monkey, I am actually a Cock, go figure!)

"Monkey Personality

The Monkey is the most versatile sign of the Chinese zodiac. Such people are often inventors, plotters, entertainers and the creative geniuses behind anything ingenious, including mischief. They have natural quick-wittedness which enables them to understand what is happening and then make a right decision. Even during a conversation person born in this year is aware of what is going on around him/her, and then make a mental note of who said what and store it away for future reference. In general, with their agile minds and multiple talents, monkey type of people can master any subject. They are reliable and host people so that any secret is safe in their hands. These people are also honest in their dealings. Monkey people are very good at problem-solving. Wherever you are, whoever you may be, if you've got a problem pick up the phone and dial-a-Monkey. Monkeys know how to listen closely and work out solutions at the same time.

In spit the fact that these people are trustworthy and unlikely to hurt someone out of spite, they would never let people escape if they have behaved badly or damaged monkey's reputation. Their stamina and determination to achieve their main goals can make these people appear vain or manipulative. It means that monkey type of people should be careful so not to damage their friendships. It is important to remember for this type of people that it would be wiser sometimes not to pursue their goals and simply let things pass.

Monkeys have flexible principles and serene self-confidence so they are completely content; but they usually manage to complicate the lives of others. After yet another plan or project has gone wrong, they are seldom there to help clean up the disorder and confusion that they leave in their wake. Monkeys can handle that too; with their charm and persuasiveness they can make people believe that just knowing them is a privilege! "

With that I leave you. I hope we all learned something new about the Monkey peoples!  Sounds like they may be cool folks. Enjoy and cya next week!
