Days 112 to 116, 2012

Day 112, Thursday April, 26th 

Day 113, Friday April, 27th
We did have some fun times at the school thing... Every spring they have a celebration and lots of.... fun. It was OK really. We had some fun and got some pizza then headed out to do everything else on the agenda!!  But Pokey got her photo taken with the slice of pizza and miserable looking school mascot....

This guy hate his fraking job!
Wooooooo a steak & shake kind of night. I love this place, because they have good shakes. That is the only reason, their food is nothing to brag about. Nothing to write home to Mother about or anything like that.  But I love love love their shakes. Their service sucks.  That is all. Spent a bit of time with my aunt and uncle tonight, luckily she had some cake pans I could borrow. Yays!! Always fun to hang out with them  though. Fer sure!!!
Day 114, Saturday April, 28th
Ahhhh Saturday, I'm dreading the whole rainbow cake thing I was blogging about last week, lols.  Yea...  It was something else.  But firstly we had a blast at the doggie park grand opening. Maximus had fun playing with the doggies and they turned on the fountain for the grand opening and  he was so funny trying to play in the water.  Toooo cute, it's too bad we didn't get any pics of the fun!!!

Later we decided to load the bikes up and take them out trailing.  Exciting!  I've been dying for Pokey to learn how to ride  her bike, for this reason!  AWESOME!  We had a blast, met some awesome people... Just as we were about to leave their youngest I wandered away from his mommy and daddy and after what seemed like forever, looking for a small child, IN THE WOODS she found him hiding in the car, ::face palm::  Ya didn't check there first?  ::shakes my head:: Whatever, at least they found the little one.  Terrible thing to lose a kid... terrible thing!!!

And what you've all been waiting for....   The Six Layered Rainbow Cake

Before the Frosting
There is a butter cream filling inside the layers there. Let me just say NIGHTMARE!
Soooo... It's impossible to make butter cream  frosting. It's impossible!!  It just doesn't work. I mix and mix and stir and stir and nothing.  Very annoying! Thank GAWD Kroger sells butter cream frosting. Add a little bit of Lemon Extract and we're good to go. It was as tasty and as stressful as it looks.  I tend to get carried away and want a feel of  perfection when I make something.. Yea, this wasn't perfect. But I got it done!!

Day 115, Sunday April 29th
Cook out day and the cake is making it's appearance into the world and our mouths.  It was a success and everyone seemed to enjoy it, if not then they fake it well. Apparently I have some awesome friends.. 
Day 116,  Monday April 30th
 Holy shit talk about a day from HELL. Walk into work this morning and boss man proceeds to tell me he has like 10 calls holding. yea he isn't kitting!! 10 calls will take like all day to get done. Took a few more calls and stayed busy all day. Last I knew I was wrapping up some tickets and the other lady started gathering trash cans. Checked my watch and holy shit it's 5pm. Whewt!! Now every day needs to go just like that. Sadly I heard them say that  they may have the body shop workers take some days off because there is nothing for them to do... WTF!  That might mean I have more work to do and  no more pay for it. That's just messed up!  Messed up I tell ya!

Well, I'm leaving you with that. No sense in packing anything else into this post. That's what tomorrow is for!  :)  Goodnight!

Hang in there!

Day 112, 2012

Thursday, April 26th
Well hello and Happy Thursday Dingleberries.  As some of you may have noticed I think I may have exhausted the whole Monkey Butt Thursday.  Thoughts? 

In other news, I'm a little  proud of myself this week for posing daily. Which is surprising because well I can't seem to blog at work anymore.  My browser doesn't support it or vice versa. It hates me, nothing new!

Oh!!  News, they've quarantined a plane in Chicago.  One of my facebook friends had a good idea, ZOMBIES!  Not that zombies are ever a good idea, buuuut wouldn't that be crazy. Damn fantasy world we're living in. 

Well tomorrow is Friday, how awesome is that?  We've some good plans for the weekend, something for every day again.  I'm making that super awesome fabulous 6 layer rainbow  colored cake on Saturday though.  I'm excited and scared at the same time, because honestly when it's all over. I may need a vacation and I'm terrified it could just be a disaster and a waste of time.  I'm hoping it isn't though!!!
Looks hard right?

Thursday's Monkey Butt

Hello Dingleberries and welcome to this weeks filler I mean Monkey Butt.  Yea so I've totally failed this week, I didn't plan ahead and waited until the last minute to come up with some wonderfully awesome that you all would enjoy. 

So please accept my apology, this is all I have for you this week.

I myself think it's pretty darn funny.  That's just me though. 

So enjoy this week's Monkey Butt.  Will definitely have something better for you next week :)  Promises right. 

Hang in there!

Day 111, 2012

Wednesday, April 25th
Well hello dear Dingleberries.  I see a few of you lerved this weeks WILW.  Thanks for all the awesome comments. How can go wrong with pretty dresses, bacon and Mr. Rogers!?!?!  It's impossible!

So it was another uneventful day at work, really hate when that happens.  I won't bore you with that again!

*Walking Dead Spoiler*

So I've finally caught up with watching The Walking Dead tonight.  Zombies make me happy ;)  What can I say?  It's a strange kind of love and an even stranger kind of mind I live in!  Let me just say it was well worth the watch (not that I doubted that).  Something happened this year and I was just not able to sit down and enjoy it while it was actually airing. I had to play catchup and then fight with the DVR for deleting my precious episodes.  DVR is the devil. 

Anyways, moving along, the chick. with the chains. and the sword.  OMG I can't wait until next season. I just can't let myself get like that. I can't!

I'm not going to ramble on and on again tonight... There isn't much to be said that I haven't already said. 

While I'm thinking about it, anyone fancy zombies?  I think I want to run some postings for a week or so, ZOMBIES. YAY!


Hang in there!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hello and welcome back to the "What I'm Loving Wednesday" . Loving it!!!
Tell me this isn't so cute?!?!?
You tell em Mr. Rogers
You're kidding right?!?!?!

And with that I leave you.  Enjoy! Happy Wednesday!

Day 110, 2012

I've been in a terrible mood today. Terrible mood.  I'm thinking perhaps it's a delayed full moon for me or something. I'm just pissed off. I hate the world, I hate my job, I'm hating people.  I want to run away. I want to move as far away from this place as I can.

My first thoughts when deciding to move as far away as possible is to the state of Washington.  I've no idea why I first think of Washington State when I think or moving to another state. It's weird.. I think Washington State and I think Australia when I think country. Though I know there are other countries I'd rather visit. I guess living in Australia just seems cool. I'm a strange kinda gal!

So my thoughts of Washington... Of course there is the crush I have on the Twilight series. For those who haven't read or seen the Twilight series the writer based her books on a city called Forks. They talk about Seattle some and then there is Port Angeles.  I've dabbled in the thought of travelling there and checking out the towns she talked about.  The movie makes some parts of it look really awesome. I'm thinking I will wait a few years and check it out. When all the glamor and all the tourism dies down. Ha!  Do we think that will ever happen?!
All the tourist pics made me nauseous!

I think honestly I'm just wishing for the small town places that Mr Monkey Butt enjoys telling me doesn't exist anymore.  Way to make life a little more unbearable!  There has to be one somewhere, doesn't there?

Back to the point, there's beaches in Washington, this is pretty much a state that offers like everything, right? I bet you can day trip to Canada or Alaska can't you?  Anyone from or near the state of Washington? Ever went to visit? 

To take ya back in time, I think the glamor of Washington state ( for me) started with Seattle and another small town called Aberdeen. The home place of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain.  I've always loved Nirvana and Kurt Cobain. He was  my high school crush, yes he was already dead. But I loved him still. He was my God  as weird as that may seem. I loved him, his music and his awesomeness!  I'd always dreamt of travelling to Seattle to visit his town, the bridges he slept under, visit Aberdeen. Everything..

I guess I've a lot of interest in the state of Washington, I'm blaming Hollywood for that.  It's also sitting right above Oregon and I've  heard from more than one person the cliffs in Oregon are to die for.  I'm hoping one day, I can leave this place, if only for a year or so and travel to these places that seem so awesome to me!

Tuesday, April 24th
So I'm feeling better, if only a little.  Mama Monkey Butt and I talked for a bit today, on more than one occasion!  It was nice to rant and rave to someone who understands and listens. Will laugh a lot and take the things you have to say with acceptance.  She's the best!!   

As you can tell, it was  day from hell.  I know I can't run off and leave this place, because Mama Monkey Butt is here and she needs me and  us right now.

Had an awesome bike ride today after work, I'm so glad Pokey has learned how to ride her bike. She still has to stop some, but it's OK. She's doing so well. Makes me smile!

That's a long ass post this week, hope you all made it to the end!! 

Goodnight dear Dingleberries,

Hang in there!

Music for a Tuesday

This week I'm giving you NIN.  I've always had a weak spot for Trent Reznor and well as you all know I love this song. I've shared Johnny Cash covering this one in the past and I just seen one of Kermit doing this one. Buuuut I had to say NAY when I saw him smacking a vein with a needle in his mouth... Whattefuck is that about!!?!?

Hang in there!

Day 109, 2012

Monday, April 23rd
For starters, it's not warm here anymore. I'm not happy about this! I've been enjoying the nice 80 degrees we've been having and then this?  Not cool. Not cool at all! Oh wait... It is cool.  Ugh!!! Sucks!!

Another thing, I wanna send out a big FUH-Q to a few boys I know for being whiny bitch people who's balls haven't dropped enough for them to man up and quit being a FUCKING BITCH! 

The neighbors decided it would be an awesome idea to catch their apartment on fire, I was a little worried that the fire would spread or something. You've seen it on the news?  Some dumb ass drops their smoke while sleeping or throws water on a grease fire and BAM the whole building goes up.  A whole mess of homeless folks?!! Luckily, that didn't happen, though I imagine the dummy who thought they could grill  on the covered, screened in patio... Yea they might be OK to hang with that stupid boy I was talking about up there!  :)

2 of the 4 fire trucks that responded.
 MmMmM Firemen!
Lastly, one of my blogging friends commented on my post earlier and well I don't have her email address so Bea if you're reading this, I have no idea how to email you. I don't even know if we're friends on the facebook or not?!?!  I'm a derp most of the time.  But email me kcdoe27athotmaildotcom :)  Or something...  :) 

Hope everyone had an OK Monday.  I guess, other than the stupid weather, it wasn't so bad here!!  Thanks for the awesome comments on my other posts!! 


Hang in there!

A Monday Giggle,

You read it right, Cock Flavored Soup Mix.  So tell me Ladies and Gentlemen, how many of us are lining up to try this one?!!  This one went right back on the shelf, unlike the bacon flavored pop corn, I've not come up with any real use for this one..

Mama Monkey Butt suggested I put spermicide in it?! lmao... She's so funny!!

Good Day Dingleberries,

Day 108, 2012

Sunday, April 22nd
Happy Earth Day Dingleberries!  I didn't hug any trees today, because I was mad at them. I did spend the majority of the day outside and for those who aren't aware we had a crazy wind advisory day! 

My cousin was married today, him and his purdy wife had an outdoor wedding at a park in their town.  Very nice park.  The bad part of this was all the wind. It was insane!!!  There was so much pollen in the air. I spent the majority of the time trying to stay in the sunshine and keeping my sunglasses on to help keep some of the pollen out of my eyes.  Oh my how they itch!! My nose is still running and itchy.  Not fair.

GO me for spending Earth Day outside!!  Congrats to the happy couple!

I'm sad it's Sunday already, I'm not ready to go back to work. Small talk on Facebook tonight we are talking about how the 5 day work week came along and the total bullshit of the matter.  I wish I could get  paid the same and work less. Or if I could actually afford to live on less money.  We could pick up some nice card board boxes to live in. Wouldn't be too bad until it rained. Sounds exotic.  Slightly... 

One more photo before I leave ya!!

Sorry for the Twilight haters...

But I effn LOVE this pic, a thousand thanks to my homie for sending it to me, <3


Hang in there!

Day 107, 2012

Saturday, April 21st
Washed my car today!! Finally. It's been a whole year (maybe more) I can't believe I've been so slack. Also removed a couple of old faded stickers from the back glass.  Productive? I'd like to think so.

Mama Monkey Butt the girls and myself went on a Goodwill run today, hit up the Walmart and Mc D's for the kids.  How can they love that shiz?  Lucky me we don't regular a Mc D's!  :)

This just in... Pokey now knows how to ride a bike. It wasn't necessary for me to purchase a new bike for her either.  Thank Gawd. She's been asking for a month or longer for a new bike, we were ready, almost. Because we thought maybe hers was to big?!?! It seemed that way and she was being a total weenie about riding it!

Today on the way home from Mama Monkey Butt's I asked her if she'd be willing to try the bike again, that maybe she had gotten taller since last time?  She agreed!  Made sure to take her out today while waiting for the chicken to cook up, SHE DID IT!  With not much trouble at all, yays!!! I'm soooo happy soooooo happy.  Very happy Mommy! 

All in all, very good Saturday!! No complaints here and look at me go, got my blogging done today as well ::high fives:: 


Hang in there!

Day 106, 2012

Friday, April 20th
Today was a day from hell. You all read that I decided, randomly that I would start the fruit diet?  Yea, well let me tell you how that went. I woke up this morning, all I wanted was COFFEE!  Wanting to be true to the diet and myself, I loaded up my cup with veggie juice.  ::gag:: Loaded my bowl with fruit, grabbed some apples and an orange, a banana and I'm out the door. 

Hours later, I've ate both the orange and one apple.  HUNGRY....

Time to go have lunch with Pokey, which I will say was easy. I hate hate hate school food and avoid it at almost all cost. Pokey was aware of my new  diet phase and had no problems with me grabbing another banana, another apple and a water.  GETTING HUNGRIER!

Head back to work, still hungry and getting grumpy.  Went back and all the the talk in the office of tacos... I'm sooo miserable, I ate my fruit bowl. The delish stuff I'd been saving all day, the strawberries, the mango, pineapple,  grapes. Yummy stuff.  Gobbled it down!! GONE!

Not feeling so hungry anymore, thank god. Still not satisfied, but it will do.

Few hours pass and it's still not time to leave. I'm fraking starving!! I need some food and I'm totally pissed at myself, because I just can't take it  anymore!!

Long story short, I had jambalaya with corn bread, green beans and mashed taters for dinner!  Followed that with the best brownies, EVER!  Then a cuppa coffee.  Yum Yum Yum!!!

In other news...

The Giggle Fest
My post card for April was laying on the kitchen table with the mail today. I was excited to see it and read what came all the way from Scotland.  Very cool!! I love this post card campaign because I just don't know when it will come!! Exciting!! 

So there ya have it, check out The Giggle Fest and if you're still wondering how to sign up for the post card campaign click yourself on over to my pages and click the post card page.  Oh go ahead, you know you wanna!! 

Happy Friday Dingleberries,

Day 105, 2012

Thursday, April 20th
I decided to start the fruit diet today. It's apparently not only a good way to lose weight but it also teaches you a little something about controlling what you eat and how much you eat. Teaches you to eat healthier and well it's great for a cleansing, which to be honest, I think I just need that. I'm hopeful it will help me in more ways than just one.

Here's to hoping!    But I'm starving, already!  :/

I hope you all enjoyed today's Monkey Butt! It took me a few minutes to get that one together and I got a lot of awesome comments on it!

What I'm realizing is, my calender is telling me we're only 110 days into this year, so how in the frak did I mange to get to 122?  I messed it up somewhere, shat!! Time to spend some time figuring it.  Very annoying if I do say so myself.

Ya won't see me online later, I'm dedicating some time to the television. Vampires and Zombies, two of my favorite things! 

Cya later Dingleberries,

Hang in there!

Thursday's Monkey Butt

This just in, well recently in. It's all over the place to my surprise, see what a little research will get you?  From MyFoxAtlanta, TreeHugger and The Jakarta Globe. (no need in checking them all, they're all the same, basically)

They've rediscovered a species of  Monkey thought to be extinct.  Yays!  it's always good to know there is one more species of monkey in the world?  Where would we be without those poo flinging fellas? 
The Miller's Grizzled Langur
Here we have The Miller's Grizzled Langur thought to be extinct until recently a group of scientist accidentally video taped these buggers hanging out in a not so close to home place, the island of Borneo in Indonesia.  They say they were known to live in the jungles, due to poaching and loss of their homes they're now living elsewhere. I'm just glad they aren't all gone.
They're pretty cute aren't they?  I must say I sure am glad my teats didn't look like Mama Monkey here. Holy moly, that's....just...rough.  lmao..

There  ya have it, enjoy!!!

Hang in there!

Day 104, 2012

Wednesday, April 18th
Hello dear Dingleberries, sitting here at the computer thinking about my day and the lack of interesting shit that went on in it!  Just saying!!

Just so you know, the bacon popcorn I shared with you the other day. Total gip. Doesn't taste like bacon at all.  I'm not really happy about that. It did manage to stink up the place pretty good though. For those who were thinking about trying it, or have tried it. What did you think?

I'm lacking seriously on my Twilight fix.  I haven't watched it in forever!  ::sigh:: Maybe tomorrow. I've got my  fingers crossed for tomorrow. Which is bad, because I've yet to finish The Walking Dead!

In other news we went out tonight to the book store to see if we could see any books on art that we could show Pokey. She's working on a paint badge in Girl Scouts. Sadly we didn't find very much, probably looking in the wrong section.  Buuuuut I did manage to find these really awesome books, check it, it's called Trash this Journal.  Awesome awesome so far. I've also started working on "The art of racing in the rain"  It's good from what I hear. Can't wait!!

So with that I leave you.  Did everyone check out my first "What I'm Loving Wednesday"?  It was my first attempt, so don't hate me if it sucked.  Tomorrows Monkey Butt should be awesome also... lol..

Goodnight Dingleberries,

Hang in there!

What I'm loving Wednesday

So I've picked up a  new challenge dear Dingleberries. I've been following Holly for sometime now and she's doing these "What I'm loving Wednesday" and I must say it tickled my fancy. Check out Little Daisy May for more information on this project.  I've a million projects on my blog, always involving something of some kind of nature. We've got music on Tuesday, Monkey Butts on Thursday and Fabulous Photos on Friday. Why not go ahead and fill Wednesday with something?  So, here we go. My first attempt at :

What I'm Loving Wednesday:

Thanks Facebook, you always find  a way to make me Giggle. This guy is awesome BTW!

Last but not least, pretty much everything on this website!!!

Pin Up Girl Clothing

There ya have this weeks What I'm loving Wednesday.  Hope you enjoyed it and see ya again next week for more.

Day 103, 2012

Tuesday April 17th
Tried the new Korean BBQ place tonight for dinner after going to Joanns and picking up some paint supplies.  Pokey has to paint a nice painting for her Girl Scout badge.  This seems to have some fun moments. The troop is one of the most unorganized places I've ever been to, but I guess that's what you get around here.  Pretty annoying.  Maybe I can somehow pull rank?  Or perhaps just kinda lead them in some better way of functioning?  I'm so evil.  Back to the BBQ, dinner was good.  Had some...steak thing.  They also brought out a lot of bowls of...stuff. It was all pretty good.  My belly aches and I drank WAY to much water!! 

Moving along...  It's Tuesday, did you all enjoy this weeks music?  I sure hope so.  I always enjoy that and anything else with piano. I'm a sucker for piano.  Working on Wednesdays post still and hope you all had an awesome day.

GOodnight Dingleberries,

Hang in there!

Music for a Tuesday

I just love this one, I picked up a Claude debussy cd a while back and love love love it!  :)   Enjoy!!!

Fell behind again, 2012

Day 99, Friday April 13th
Day 100, Saturday April 14th
Day 101, Sunday April 15th
Day 102, Monday April 16th
Well it's Monday again and I failed, EPICLY, with getting my posts in over the weekend. It's become like a regular thing, I think. Oh well, that's OK I guess.  Life happens, especially over here. I'm patiently waiting for the pools to open. I can't wait, sitting by the pool, watching Pokey play while I sip on some water and soak up some sunshine. Ahhhhhh.. It's going to be awesome!  I love summer!!

So we didn't get into much this weekend, Pokey is having a hell of a time adjusting to the school thing since Spring Break and it's been hell. She's in girl scouts now also, well kinda. We're posta register next week. She seems to be loving it. They made veggie faces today and smoothies.   She also made some honey mustard dip last night for today's meeting. It wasn't really that great!! 
Work today was just that....Work. We stayed kind of steady through out the morning and early afternoon. I was actually happy about this, as you all know I hate hate hate being bored. So it's nice to at least be busy for part of the day.. Yays!

But I won't bore you to death my life. I'm steady working at organization of my blogs. I've three of them now you know and they're all different. I'm trying to some how stop doing certain things with this one and start adding some things to the other one. not sure just yet though, because the other two pretty much have themes. Where this one has always just been my random BS,  ya know?   So I'm still thinking  about it.

I have decided to add a new thing for this one though. It's called "What I'm Loving Wednesday".  Something else to keep me busy, right?  So with this I leave you.  I need a little extra sleep tonight I think. Pokey thought it was a good idea to get up at 6am this morning.  Yea I wasn't getting up, she was forced to lay in bed with me for an hour.  tee hee!

Goodnight Dingleberries,

Hang in there!

MmMm bacon,

Found this at the grocery store tonight. I'm pretty excited to give it a shot. Looks and sounds pretty good to me, will definitely let you know how it goes!! In other food news, I made Amish bread and some Black Bean Burgers on Friday .  Both of which were pretty darn tasty. I had to freeze some of that bread.  Just means I've got some saved up for another day!!

Goodnight facebookers, I'm going to update the 365 post tomorrow :)  Hope you had a wondermus weekend Dingleberries.

Hang in there!

Physical Therapy and High Hopes!

Hey Hey Hey my Dear Dingleberries!  There's no late breaking news or anything like that. No progress or fumbles to report.  Mama Monkey Butt is in the makings of healing from her mastectomy!  No real complaints from her either. I guess, in her case, it went pretty well.. Considering!

So this week, I've more words directly from Mama Monkey Butt's fingers. This she posted on Facebook this week and I was just dying to share the news with you awesome folks!!

"Had 1st physical therapy today, I am sore, but it went great, stretched silly and stretched and stretched. Dr. Does it really matter, put off chemo til next week, he said he wants to give me one more week to heal up, just because Dr. I'm not telling still had the tube in me, She removed it today, Every visit at each office went Great, Each doctor was completely satisfied with the results, the surgeon released me today, asked me to come back in 6 months, just for check up. chemo will start back next Thursday as well as Physical Therapy, every Thursday. Jesus Loves Me, I Love You All." 
So there ya have it, straight from Mama Monkey Butts mouth.  She's fighting like a champ with no thoughts of giving up, throwing in the towel or calling it quits. It makes me sad she has to deal with this shit, on top of everything else this life has thrown her. But lucky for her and all of us, we're in this together.  This cancer is going down.  Frak you cancer, Frak you and your Fraking evilness!!! Grrr!!!

Hang in there!
