Day 25, 2012

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012
Tuesday you say?  Well aren't you just  a bucket of surprises.  I was worried earlier I hadn't posted Monday yesterday.  I guess I thought I was posting it separately but went ahead and ran it with that mass post yesterday. YESSSSS!!

I think this will be a randomish post, because I can't seem to get my thoughts together. I keep flippn back and forth to this and facebook, all while thinking about Thursdays Monkey Butt post and some gross shit on TV. Excuse me while I run to the bathroom and puke!

::puking noises, toilet flushes:: 

Now where were we?  RANDOMNESS!

  • I need a hair cut... I think. I told myself it just needed some hair dye!   I don't think that is the case at all.
  • It's almost ground hog day.  Has anyone saw any upcoming weather?  Or perhaps the TV guide telling us that the Ground Hog day movie will marathon that day?
  • Whatever happened to Goofy Girl?  I know she had some things going on and I know some of you are following her as well?  While we're talking about this.. What happened to The Red Head Named Sam?  Jobonster the spitfire?  I've been wondering for some time.  Those are a few of the first Monkey Butts and I love all of you guys bunches I miss them at times. Always wonderful posts coming from them!!!
  • Exercise sucks!  I added it to my resolution... Why the fuck did I do that?
  • And another thing, after watching an episode of Cops tonight (don't judge me) I'm wondering if I could actually perform like a total asshat cop if I had to?  I mean could I put away my nice self for something like that?  Why do I want to do it soooo much?!! I'm so confused and so frustrated that I just can't DO IT ALREADY!
So there you have enough random shit for today.. Holy hell it's like a random Tuesday, unintentional for sure and well don't think that will be a weekly habit for me!

I hope all is well with you, I've a lot of reading to get on and comments to reply to.  Happy Tuesday, hope you enjoyed this weeks music :)

****Oh Oh Oh, before I forget, Cup of Coffee if you are reading this, your blog is giving me troubles, I can't comment for some reason. It makes me  a sad. So you know it lets me type it out but then when it puts the confirm I'm a person thing it's too low and I can't get to it ://// FIX IT? tee hee!****

Music for a Tuesday

My regulars know how much I love some Rehab. 

I'm missing them, wanting to see them live again. Have a few drinks and maybe a cig or two. 

I think I'm also missing home a little.  Yea I'm only about an hour away or so, but whatever.  It doesn't change anything. So I couldn't find a video for this one, but enjoy what they gave us.  The music is still the same.

Happy Tuesday Dingleberries, hang in there.

365 days of 2012 (playing catch up)


Photo Credit

Well Happy Monday and Good day dear DIngleberries.  I've been MIA all weekend and I missed you guys most of all!  I'd like to start by blaming my exercise gadget for my weekend get a way.  Spending an hour at a time on this thing after Pokey goes to bed takes the life right out of me.

That guy (the creator possibly?) looks like a damn retard with that stupid look on his face. I swear I can't make that face when I'm on that machine. I'm mostly staring at nothing with an eat shit and die why must I have to do this bullshit kinda look on my face.  Yea it's awesome I tell you. 

Again, I'm loving the ipod for this though. Before I'd suffer through 30 minutes only and just couldn't bare anymore of it. Now though it is really a good distraction at times!!!!

So now that I'm at work, and we all know it doesn't always get in the way of my blogging, I'm going to catch you all up on the glory I call my weekend this weekend and of course I will be back to my exercise tonight. GAWD!

Day 21 FRIDAY,
January 27th, 2012

Friday was as Friday always is. Refused to pass fast enough and I really had no idea what was on the agenda (other than see above).  We hadn't made any plans that I was aware of.  As of right now, I've no idea what we even really did on Friday, let me think...... yea... nothing. Well I'm sure it was fun, whatever it was. :)  Always nice to be off work, even when ya know you have to work the next day, which I might add sucks to think about. Work on a Saturday?  ::uncontrollable crying::

My post card for January on The great postcard campaign  came in the mail today. It really is awesome to get mail that isn't either A)JUNK or B) BILLS.  Which it only nice when you're thinking it's late or something because you haven't seen it and then it shows up and it isn't late. Yays!  Back to the point, let me do some tagging and  linking and the fun stuff I know you all LOVE!  So I signed up for "THE GREAT POSTCARD CAMPAIGN" a while back, which I will say is lovely. This is my second post card so far. This one sent from  "THE CAT AND THE COFFEE CUP"  Very awesome 'post card' we have here!  Was super excited to get it open and snapped a picture of it to share with all that same day.  It's too bad my slack arse didn't actually get to sharing that night.  So sowy, but thanks and shout out to the lovely cat and coffee cup, wondermus blogger, check it out and sign up for the post card campaign while you are at it!  Who doesn't like post cards from all over?  sheesh!  ;)  So there ya have info and links and all that jazz.  Check it out why don't you!
Day 22, Saturday
January 28th,


I managed to log into the facebook on the ipod while Pokey and I were out and about on Saturday, my facebook friends have seen Pokey and her new hair cut. I'm thrilled she loves her new hair so much but I'm sad that she looks so grown up with that hair cut.  She is such a sweetie wanted to look just like a Monkey Butt, but just won't listen when I tell her she is far cuter than me!  :)  More time spent on the exercise machine though we were able to hit up Goodwill tonight, you know I love some Goodwill shopping! Found this super awesome coat at goodwill. It's long and pink and I fucking love it !!!! LOVE IT!  Had a loverly dinner out with the famz and of course work sucked, buuuut it could have been worse and has been for that matter!

Day 23, Sunday
January 29th
I think I managed to get everything done today. Laundry buttoned up, went to the Walmart, damn I still hate that place. Something about pulling into the parking lot at Walmart sends Pokey into either a FIT mode or WHINES A LOT mode.  Must be the fumes radiating from that place or something.  I'm hoping she hates it as much as I do when she gets older. Got some new nail polish though, woooo hoooo!  Did the Krogering while out and spent too much money.  Attempted the whole coupon cutting this time around, pretty much a NIGHTMARE and honestly considerings I purchase mostly the Kroger brand stuffs, it didn't really save me any money.  Good for those few things I just cant skimp on though!  So whatever!  Plus was able to get a couple other things I wouldn't normally buy.  Boooyah!  That wasn't really called for. 

The weekend went quickly, nothing new there, probably because I had to work on Saturday. I'm not so proud to say that I slacked off and didn't touch the exercise gadget on Sunday.  Ooops.  I did manage to paint my nails and get the house clean, again, as well as wrap up any other chores I'd forgotten not got to yet!

Day 24, Monday
January 30th,
OH yay happy effn Monday. I must say it didn't start out too shitty.  I didn't get up when I was posta and jump in the shower, I stayed in bed, ooops. Managed to get the shower though. That was a must, no way around it!  Took the Max out and got the Pokey up for the ego waffles. She loves those things, for a month I'm sure.  She's like that. She will go through these phases. Pop Tarts for a week then she is done with them, cereal, oatmeal. Now we're on the ego waffles, lets see how long it last. She is also into taking her lunch again.  We did it a good bit last year and I must say it saves me a bit of money. I'm usually sending them like 25 bucks  a week for her lunches, which is  a total rip, the food is for shit and well that is like 5 bucks a day!  Good lawd I don't even cost that much!  :)  She enjoys taking her lunch,, so I'm not going to say NO to an extra 25 bucks a week or so!
So, it's Monday and though there has been moments where I wanted to snap a neck bone or two of some 'innocent' person standing near me, I haven't done any neck breaking.  It's tempting though!  Very tempting. Monday's after an auction or at the end of the month are always a stressful day for me. I've a few other ideas I need to pound out for you all and I need to draft them up before I lose them forever! 

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and that you aren't buried under any snow, we aren't freezing down here as of right now and the news/weather lady isn't telling us of any terrible weather to come, so lets hope Mr Groundhog has some good news.  Have you ever noticed though, when they say it's going to be an early spring, it's still 6 more weeks of winter.  They're really stupid I think, but I'm HOPING they run the marathon of "Groundhog Day" because I just LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie! 

Goodday Dingleberries, cya later, I hope!

Day 20, 365 days of 2011.

Thursday, January 26th, 2011
I've gotta keep this short and sweet tonight. The lap top battery is DYING.  I spent the beginning of my Internet time uploading some new music to the ipod!

Can you believe it?  I have an ipod now. My very first one.  It made that 1 hour on the gazelle (exercise gadget) a hell of a lot less painful, well the knee pain aside.  How will I ever be able to run a mile and something in 15 mins with knee pain?  UGH!!!

But I'm just glad I spent an hour on the machine. I need to build the muscle and lose the weight.

I'm off to bed now, I'm tired and like I said, battery dying.  Hang in there Dingleberries, I'm sure I will be caught up tomorrow with my reading!  :)) 

Day 19, 2012

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

After many failed attempts through out the day to catch a photo that didn't make me want to puke, I was able to capture one while standing in the kitchen last night.

I wasn't able to hop online due to exhaustion from the driving last night, but I'm here now and have plans to be back later as well with today.  This is for yesterday, as you can already tell.

Not too bad of day, managed to get caught up at work with my auction stuff for the weekend. Auction coming up this weekend, nothing to write home about, that's for sure!!

We went to have dinner with Mama and Papa Monkey Butt last night. It was great fun, Granny Monkey Butt (that's my grandma, I call her Granny outside of my blog) was there, I really enjoy seeing her as often as I do now.  I hate that Great Papa Monkey Butt (that's my grandpa, we called him popa, he passed away in 2007) passed away many years ago, but I must say it's nice knowing she's so close now. That's wrong, somehow, isn't it?!

Tasty dinner and time to catch up. We chatted on the phone the other night and it's really sinking into my brain the things she said. I don't know if I'm ready to share my thoughts on those. I don't think that my thoughts are really all together at this point either.  It's a lot for me to take in and well it's a lot of accepting, because really. Sometimes you just don't think about everything.

Cya later Dingleberries!

Thursday's Monkey Butt

This week I'm sharing something a bit different. Tuesday's Music Post stemmed this idea for me, considering my unforgettable love of Korn and their music I'm sharing one of the band members, Munkey. 

He's damn adorable if you ask me and a rocker for sure!  His dreads all awesome and fabulous, excuse me for a minute!

For those who haven't given Tuesday much thought and have no heard much from the likes of Korn, take some time and check it out. If you've any interest in Dubstep, which is what they are now or the older stuff has more of a heavy metal twang I guess. I'm into all of it, because I guess, when you just love a band it kinda sticks and it doesn't really matter what changes they make or how drastic their music changes, ya just kinda love them.  Kinda like real love situations I guess.

Damn Love and it's ability to make our lives HELL! ;)

2011, farewell. (finale)

October 2011

Punkin' Carvin'






Pumpkin carving and pumpkin patching is the best part of October I think.  A lot of good times picking out pumpkins and stencils to choose from. 
Wicked Witch? Nah! Never!
















Halloween!  WE LOVE HALLOWEEN and it's not all about the candy. OK OK it is mostly about the candy, but whatever.  We had such an awesome time trick or treating this year.  With the most awesome people and Pokey had a blast.  I have to say of  her 7 years of trick or treating this was the best, so far!  We really enjoyed ourselves!












November 2011
Thanksgiving Feast!

So I put on my brave face and hosted the Thanksgiving holiday at our new apartment.  It was a house warming slash dinner thing. It was so much fun and so stressful but very tasty. I'm glad we did it and hope we will do it again in years to come. If the Moms will let me!  :)  They tend to out cook me by a lot!!!




who says you can't get a tree on a Camry?! Pft!

Our family, though kind of large tends to have a dinner as well, where we eat dinner (again) and draw names for everyone.  If ya remember we didn't draw for the adults only the kids and it was interesting not to let the cat out of the bag that the adults were giving all the monies to my parents for Mama Monkey Butts medical bills.   

We did hit the Home Depot  and got our Christmas tree. Tradition for  us is to put it up the day after Thanksgiving.  I think we did OK with that this year.  Got it done anyways!   I love the smell of real Christmas trees.  I love it. It makes the season all worth while! 

**In other news the really exciting part of November, not only did I hit the big 30.  Twilight Breaking Dawn premiered on my birfday and of course Lykke Li show a few days later.  Best birfday ever!  of all my concerts in my 30 years of life, Lykke Li may have been the best. May have been the one that will stick with me forever. I love her music on my cds it was something far better in concert.  If any one of you ever have the opp to see her perform, do it, you won't regret it. Her voice will just melt your soul!**

December 2011

MAX
 Our new little addition to our small family.  He was so cute then wasn't he?  He's still cute, definitely a lot better to deal with. Not all scared and shit!  Well still scared sometimes!








Christmas was fun this year. I played Santa at Mama Monkey Butts house.  That was....stressful. I'm staying away from that task next year, someone else can do that shit.  I got it done though and rawking my awesome bandanna that I gots from Mama Monkey Butt. 

Awesome Christmas times with the family and Mama Monkey Butt was feeling pretty good if I'm not mistaken.  

Pokey lost her other front toof, awes!
Managed  to keep the holiday spirit.





So there ya have it. My year 2011.  It was an awesome year, mostly. We had a struggles with Mama Monkey Butt and her medical stuff. Moved around (again) a few times.  All in all though it was pretty much a normal year.  I'd like to think so anyways.
Looks like 2012 will be a bit different. I'm 30 now, guess it's time to "grow up" or something.
I look forward to sharing my 30s with you Dingleberries.  Thanks for hanging with me last year.  Let's hope I have a bit more to blog about this year.

Day 18, 2012

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012
Happy Tuesday Dingleberries. Anyone have time to jam to this weeks Music?  Hope you all enjoyed it, if only a little bit. Something different for those who aren't regulars.

-This morning I let myself get a little butt hurt when someone made some offensive remarks here in the office. I just want to reach out and smack the shit out of people who say hateful things. I know I'm guilty myself at times, but I also know that if you've nothing nice to say to just not say anything.  I think perhaps the OLDS of the world today forget this shit.  Or perhaps no one ever taught them any manners.  It's not okay to make racist remarks and say offensive shit. I'm sure I'm guilty from time to time, it just bothered me today. Asshats! 

-Mama Monkey Butt says I need to find a new job because this one makes me bitch all the. I think she may be right!

-Remind me to air up the tires on my bike and carry it in to work with me tomorrow.  Okay?

-Well there is my random for today. I've other thangs to do right now, but wanted to atleast share some of my thoughts. 

Hope your Tuesday is good Dingleberries.  Till next time, hang in there! 

Music for a Tuesday

It's a strange week for me I guess. You regulars know I typically don't share such harsh music.  Well leave it to Korn, old Korn anyway to bang your head and make it hurt.  As the old saying goes, "If the music is too loud you're too old".... Or something like that anyways.

Older Korn was so awesome, they've gone all dub step today because they've lost some members and are just a few members short I guess. I assume no one can really hold up to Jonathan Davis' standard or something.  Not quite sure. I do enjoy the new Korn but back when they were new and fresh he had that nice strong voice that could just blow you away. He got older, stained himself and just changed it up.  Not as good as when he started, but still Jonathan Davis, always one of my favorites.

I was lucky enough to see him perform at Family Values many years ago. It was always a goal of mine to at least see them perform once before they went entirely something else.  So Dingleberries, check it out and see if  you can like it. The style is a little different with their new stuff, but Jonathan still gives me a tingle when he sangs! 

Luckily this post gives me an idea for this weeks Monkey butt, stay tuned for other stuffs this week, have an awesome time.  ENjoy!

Day 17, 2012

Monday,
January 23rd. 2012
I suddenly have the feeling like I've missed a day or something. Like I've forgotten to post something with my 365 days already. It's day 17, this isn't a good time to start feeling this way. So early in the project and all. 

I've  a few other posts I need to pound out for this week. I'm hoping to accomplish that this week. I need to wrap up my 2011 farewell and work on a few other drafts I have saved up.  Given permission from another blogger again to blog his blog of awesomeness.  I can't wait to share it with you Dingleberries.    I enjoy finding other people in the blogging world and sharing their work. It fills space on my blog at times, gives me a creative push, sometimes I lack that ya know and well it spreads the word about bloggers that you all may not stumble on by yourselves.  How fun is that.

So it's been a Monday. I can't wait to get off and pick up Pokey. Mr. Monkey Butt had the day off today so it will be nice to go home and spend time with him as well. I bet Maximus had fun having someone to hang with today.  It's too bad Mr Monkey Butt may have to work Saturday now though.  That's not much fun!

Well Dingleberries, I'm sure you've seen and heard enough from me in the last 2 days. With this I leave you, till tomorrow, Hang in there!

Awesome Goodwill Finds :)

Look at all these neat finds. I've already placed the place mats, as you can tell, but ya know, I think they're actually pillow cases.  Oh well.  The other 2 on the bottom right, Im just not sure and it isn't that great of a photo :)

PB Balls <--Yummmm

So as you noticed yesterday I had this super awesome cool idea to make peanut butter balls with Pokey. Let me start by saying it was pretty fucking frustrating.  For starters I hate walmart. Like genuinely just hate it and well yea...

So I started with this Paula Deen recipe who as I said should make something super awesome and tasty.  Well after getting most of the items from her list of stuffs that I needed to make it I'm on the hunt for dried milk.  DRY MILK!!!  So I find an abundance of Evaporated Milk, not the same thing, I know this. Of course I know where the gallons of milk are and obviously, there is nothing DRY about a gallon of milk.  Then I spot it.  Dried Milk, made by Carnation or something.  It' sold in INDUSTRIAL sized packaging with a whopping $10 price tag. I'm cussing up a damn fit, swearing and spitting I'm sure. On the phone with Mama Monkey Butt and throwing my items out of the cart. Storming off to the section where umbrellas are sold. 

Needed a break from the damn food sections!!

BREATH TAKEN...

Still on the the phone with Mama Monkey Butt and determined to get this shit done and make some damn peanut butter balls. I'm pissed at them already. Mama Monkey Butt finds another recipe but it's calling for some kind of WAX.  A wax to mix with the chocolate.. WTF man?!  Even the Walmart employee looked at me like I was retarded!   He had an adorable blue band aid though. 

Moving on, she finds a simple, no bake recipe online and I manage to locate all of the ingredients.  GAWD DAMN finally!  That was the most stressful thing EVER!  I knew when I struck out with the dried milk I should have called it quits, went home and came back another day for this shit.  But I didn't give up.  Pokey and I came out with everything we needed. And the batteries made it to the CAR this time.  Pfew!


  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine , softened
  • 1 lb dipping chocolate or 1 lb confectioner's coating


 
Look at our creation.  You don't have to tell me they're ugly. I already know.  But they were tasty!  They really were. The process was easy with the exception of the chocolate covering. That was AWFUL!  The peanut butter balls were frozen and well adding the chocolate really only made them want to break in half.  You can probably see a couple of them are all fucked up!  Next time we will just coat them in powdered sugar.  Maybe that will keep them from breaking apart.
 
So there ya have it....Our adventure in peanut butter balls.  If you try them or any remake of your own, let me know. I'm always game for something new and tasty!  Going to make the tofu pie one day.  :)  Will have to share that one with you as well.

Day 16, 2012

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

Happy Sunday. It's pretty much one of my least favorite days of the week.  Sunday and Wednesday, I can say I hate those 2 most of all!

Sunday, because I just know I have to go back to work tomorrow. Sure it's a few days closer to having more money on pay day!  lolz.  But I don't know. Run through the motions till another weekend and a few more days off, though this coming weekend I will have to work on Saturday. Dang that's going to suck, always does. But they have to sell those junk cars and I have to make sure the paperwork is all together and things are going smoothly!  Shall see, it's always an adventure because there are a lot of asshats who after so many trips to the sale they would learn the role and all, but they don't.  Arg!

Wednesday, I think it just sucks because it's the middle of the week and by then I've been up late blogging and playing on facebook and of course spent 3 days at work and all. I think I'm just tired and in need of a little extra sleep (which I don't typically get). 

Anyways, Sunday (today) was full of....driving.  Arg!  We had to pick up Pokey at church, she stayed the night with Mama and Papa Monkey Butt and their new thing is church, which is awesome. They seem to like it and Pokey said she had fun as well.  So it worked out! We drove about an hour from there and then an hour back for late lunch with MR. Monkey Butts Mom and Dad.  It's her birfday tomorrow and we had an awesome lunch at Chilis.  It was fun. 

Came home and then had to get the list together for Krogering.  Get the shopping done and then run home and finish the day.  Max got his Sunday bath. Got some more laundry done and rooms cleaned and tidy.  Wow, I spend my weekends cleaning and running around. It looks like its the same every weekend. I guess it's because I spend all my time at work all week. No time to get it done then.  Just the way it goes.

I've some other posting to do tonight, though you all will prolly see it show up tomorrow. If you even have the time to check these post. I hope you all had a wondermus weekend and spent more time at home, on the couch.  That's what I would rather do sometimes.  Mama Monkey Butt told me tonight that her sister is renting a condo on the beach in February.  Ahhh how I'd love to do that.  :)

Goodnight Dingleberries, keep hanging in there! ;)

Day 15, 2012

Day 15, Saturday
January 21st, 2012
It fucking rained all day. Ugggghhhh!  Well mostly anyways. Gots my hair dyed and I'm hating it a little less.  Hung out a Grandmas for a while and patiently waiting for the evening to begin.  After changing plans slightly we decided to have dinner at Olive Garden, waiting for what seemed like EVER.  The food was good though, it always is.  Pokey had her A/B Honor Roll McDonald's lunch and we spent a few minutes at Goodwill. Other than the rain, it was pretty much a good day!!!

Day 14, 2012

Thursday, January 19th, 2012
So this should save me from having to do it later. I've plans tonight with a certain 8 year old to make peanut butter balls. I've never personally made them, but found a recipe online by Paula Deen, so you know they have to be good. She has diabetes for gawd sake, you know her cooking is good. Hell it gave her diabetes!  lolz.  That's not right and no joking matter I'm sure, but my Dad and Grandmother has diabetes, so fuck off, I can joke about it if I want!

OK, back to this.. I remember when we were kids, we would spend time with my aunt and uncle, that's my mothers brother.  He being younger than my Mom they had no children. They loved us and loved to take us for the weekend or what ever Mama Monkey Butt would let them have.  I remember we always had fun, we loved them. My aunts Mom would make these awesome peanut butter balls sometimes when we would visit.  Oh my fucking gawd they were so damn tasty!!!  The best thing I'd ever eaten and it was always that way.  I'm still a little shocked that in the last 30 years I've not made these peanut butter balls. Well the time has come!

We're gonna make those mean, tasty bitches tonight.  No worries, I will share the experience with you later.  Till then, have a great day/night Dingleberries.  Thanks for all those who have checked out this weeks Monkey Butt, I will be over there to respond to your comments later.  For those who haven't checked it out, wtf yo?

Thursday's Monkey Butt

Gleek, a blue space monkey from the Super Friends, Wonder Twins.  I've never actually seen an episode of Wonder Twins nor have I picked up a super friends episode or comic book. Though I'm sure some of you have.  So this weeks Monkey Butt owes credit to JIMSMASH!!! again for this wonderful Monkey post and allowing me to steal borrow monkey ideas. I've no idea what I might do if I use all of these.  No fear, we've plenty to keep my busy.   So allow me to shout out for a minute and then we can get on with Gleek the blue space Monkey.  Check here for the original post, if you're interested and well the blogger who mentioned gleek isn't linkable, wtf..... So JIMSMASH!!  let your fellow blogger, maker know that he was credited here for his awesome list!!!!  :)

As I was saying.... Gleek is a blue space Monkey from the Super Friends, Wonder Twins. He was a pet to the Super Twins, ZAN and Jayna.  He gets into his share of mischief and is used as a comic relief, leave it to television to make a joke of a poor monkey!  ;) Sounds to me like he deserves his time in the light here on Monkey Butt.
This is an old series from the 70's but has seen the light of day years to follow.  With that I leave you, I hope you have enjoyed this weeks Monkey Butt and we look forward to seeing you next week, till then
hang in there Dingleberries.
Gleek looks effn scary in this pic!

Day 13, Wednesday,
January 18th, 2012
















Well it's been a couple of days since I posted. Damnit, I was doing pretty well but because my lap top wants to die from lack of battery power and my eyes are wanting to shut as well, yes I'm tired. It's Wednesday and a hell of a day I would say.  Of course I didn't do much at all, never do, but still.  It's Wednesday. 
I hope everyone had a wondermus Wednesday and hope that you enjoy the Monkey Butt tomorrow. I'm going to do better at catching up tomorrow.  I'm sure of it!
Goodnight Dingleberries.

July 2011







So peaceful.  Went for a hike.  I love summer!

















Tank tops and sun shine...I don't need anything else, well except for my Pokey <3






Yea it looks like I may have done NOTHING for the 4th of July this year (2011) . If I'm not mistaken Pokey was with her Dad and I was just chillin.  Prolly up to no good, or sitting on my arse at home. Though I bet the family did a cook out thing or something. Ah I wish I could remember everything :) 

August 2011











Oh yea, almost forgot... bridesmaid in a wedding.  It was in NO WAY the highlite of my summer.  The wedding was BEAUTIFUL, the bride, the groom, the wedding party. I however was not happy in my dress or the fact that my heels were sinking in the ground making my already clumsy ass feel even more out of place. It was definitely an experience and a lovely one at that. Honored she chose me, but honestly I don't know if I want to ever be a bridesmaid again, ever! 










Tee Hee... Rehab concert. BEST ONE EVER!  lolz. I didn't have permission from the 2 fun stickered face folks, so they got fun stickers. Lucky Mr Monkey Butt doesn't mind!  We had a blast and I drank a little too much, again. 






We spent time at the parks in August as well.  The summer was quickly approaching an end and looks like I attempted to make the best of it whenever possible.  Yays! 







September 2011

Camping... It was......AWESOME.  Can't wait to do it again for 2012 and maybe... just maybe go a bit more prepared for camping. Hoping there won't be rain next time!
More camping Fun with the family.

Well from the looks of it I wrapped up my summer quite nicely. I'd say all in all it was a very very awesome summer. Great times with great friends, great time with awesome family and a lot of sunshine and tanning lotion. 

Did I mention I love summer?  More than any other season, EVER?  Well just in case you forgot.






So with that I leave you until next post. I think it will be the wrap up of 2011 and well I hope you've enjoyed it so far.  Goodnight Dingleberries.

Music for a Tuesday

I remember being a kid in high school and having the biggest crush on Whitey Ford.  He was the only other man on my bedroom walls.  All the other vacant spaces taken by the late, great, Kurt Cobain from Nirvana. 
I miss my posters at times. 
They never graced a wall again after being taken down from the long lost purple walls of my parents home. 
They did fit well on those walls though.
I find myself having flash back moments when I walk into Pokeys room, because she has covered her walls in posters as well, it's Justin Bieber. 
I'm actually happy to say that she has outgrown Justin Bieber (thank gawd). Though I didn't mind her having a little super star crush, I just wished the music was a little better. I finally cracked and loved it along with her, but when he released that Christmas CD, I just gave up then.
Anyways, back to this.... So I've noticed this is a Johnny Cash cover. I think I've a crush on Johnny Cash ( subconsciously of course) Enjoy this weeks song Dingleberries.  Happy Tuesday!

Day 11, 2012

Monday, January 16th, 2012

My buddy Tito totally called me "four eyes" when I shared this on facebook.  WTF Tito?  He's lucky I can say I like his arse or I'd kick it from here to Mexico or something. 

Oh wells. Happy Monday and it's MLK Jr. day. How lovely, I guess. I'm not sure what anyone was up to today, me...Not much, working. 

Pokey had no school and enjoyed her day at the daycare.  Lovely right? I attempted to have an OK day at work today. It worked out pretty well and was able to keep certain asshats away from me!  Yessssss! 

Posted an update earlier for Mama Monkey Butt's breast cancer, thanks for those who read and commented.  I love you guys for your kind words and well wishing.   SO with this I leave you, hope this week is just awesome for all you Dingleberries, if it isn't hang in there.   And remember, it can always be worse!





Check out how flippn awesome this lil statue is that we found at goodwill over the weekend!!!!! Why would anyone get rid of this thing????.  And FYI it looks like it has a hook for wings or something on the back!!! I'm thinking about constructing some and attaching them.  Awesome right!!!

Goodnight!

Chemo Updates....

Well hello Dingleberries. Here I am recovering from a serious case of slack ass monkey butt.  Very serious illness if I do say so myself.

Updates on Mama Monkey Butt though..

Last week, I didn't blog this one, she went down for chemo.  Well all the excitement from hearing her breast had shrank down in size, the Dr was concerned that it had came back up in size.  The Dr requested another CT scan so they did not do any treatments last week. They ran a new CT scan and spoke of changing the medicines and all if there wasn't any changes.

So this morning, Mama Monkey Butt is down again for chemo. They are actually doing the chemo today. They did change the medicines for the chemo and said that some of the cancer has shrank and some of it has not or has grown. She didn't specify and of course this is all done in text message. I will call her tonight and perhaps can have something more witty to say regarding this matter another time.

Again I feel like such a piece of Monkey poo because I haven't been calling like I should, I haven't been visiting like I should.  The price of gas is going back up and I'm trying to save money and stressing myself over shit in my own life. I'm just selfish pile of Monkey poo thrown against a wall right now. 

But Dingleberries, don't give up on me. I tend to pull through things, eventually. Keep praying for Mama Monkey Butt in her cancer treatment and keep us in your thoughts.  Till next time. 

Day 10, 2012

Day 10, Sunday
January 15th, 2012

Damn my hair was effed up in this picture. I fought myself all weekend with my hair.  I'm in the mood where I can hate hate hate it without much effort.  I don't know if it's the cut or the damn roots growing in!!!  UGH!!

I think I'm also a little disappointed, because as all of you regular Dingleberries, you've heard me say I was/am going to shave my head to raise awareness for breast cancer. I've not done so because  Daddy Monkey Butt told me that Mama Monkey Butt wished we wouldn't do anything like that. Still pissed at who ever it was that let that cat out of the bag. So here I'm am, torn with to shave or not to shave. Mr Monkey Butt kinda looks at me like I'm crazy whenever I bring it up.  Maybe it's just crazy!  Whatever!

Hope you had a wondermus Sunday Dingleberries. I cya later today for day 11 (today)!   Till then, hang in there!

Day 9, 2012

Day 9, Saturday
January 14th, 2012


Yay Saturday. I sat down.  "just for a moment" I told myself. I only need to post today's post so that I can run off and do some exercising.  Here I sit.  Watching Jackass 3, which I might add has some seriously funny shit going on in it.  If you haven't seen it, watch it. It's stupid, but funny.
Today, another lovely Saturday washing clothes and cleaning... Well the apartment is cleanish, cleaner anyway. I found my old chore list also.  Woo Hoo.  Now maybe I can stay caught up throughout the week.
All the days I spend hating on work, ya know, I really shouldn't. I'm sure I spend a great deal of my week playing on the interwebs.  It may be worth it, but I'm not giving up on the resolution to find a new job.

ps.. Look at Max and his lazy arse curled up on the couch.  Get a job Max....Lerve ya buddy!

Day 8, 2012

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Happy Friday and it's the 13th.   I hope everyone had a lovely day with no crazy drama to deal with. Everyone who needed their cars towed today acted like total retards and got on my nerves whenever possible.  One jackass called me, all frantic because she drove her trail blazer up over and fire hydrant.  Said she was worried her car was going to sink, what a retard!!!  That wasn't PC was it. I'm sorry!

OK OK so it's been a long day. I wanted to blog, because I hate trying to play catch up and I'm trying to at least do OK with this. I need to blog more on my farewell postings but that will just have to wait. I've no idea what channel is what and no intentions of surfing through them only to find nothing..  Goodnight and see you tomorrow!

Day 7, 2012


Day 7, Thursday January 12th

Well all in all it was a Happy thursday. I'm attempting with this project to make sure my days are stand alone so that maybe there won't be any confusion this year. LOLZ. It's still early in the project though. I've already noticed a couple of thins I'm doing differently and I'm just not sure I like it.  Thank Gawd there is always room for tweeking!  :) 

I had fun with this one, don't know why I didn't get the chance to get online last night and post all about it. I had this crazy thought on the way home about taking multiple pics for the day and sharing them.  I did it.  though the idea seemed better in my head I think.  bwhahah... Oh wells, something new of the day.


Taco night last night and terrible stomach pains for some reason, I'm still not sure what those are about.  I'm hopeful it passes soon. Im considering PMS (sorry for TMI) as well as diet.  Just not sure yet.....

Thursday's Monkey 'butt'

Happy New Year again Dingeberries.  I think that is officially getting old.  So here we are, another Thursday, another monkey butt.  Well for those dedicated followers  Dingleberries of mine, thank you for hanging in there! ( I just made a funny)  Some of you may remember, I've touched on sock monkeys in a previous Thursday (actually looks like two previous posts, both Thursdays, here and here ), but this one has more to it other than random sock monkey antics. Which actually sounds like an effin awesome idea.  :)  Anyone remember those gnome commercials, where the gnome would go on vacation and send home pictures of him in random places?  Hmmm, ::light bulb::  Who has a sock monkey?  Come on Dingleberries, some of you have to have one around there somewhere?  Let me know!

So again, I'm stealing borrowing with permission from a fellow bloggers page. I've blogged him before, here he is again, JIMSMASH!!! thanks to his blogging I've found more monkeys for your viewing pleasure and he always  has something neat to blog about, go ahead, check him out, you know you want to!  :)  So without more babble from the Butt, here ya go!


Let me explain....  This guy (yea click that) submitted this monkey from Cabin Boy, the movie as his #1 pick and he was the first person to comment on JIMSMASH and his post. 
Sadly, I must admit I have not seen Cabin Boy, I do like the main actor though and perhaps I just haven't invested the time to actually sit and watch it, mind you I have heard of it and have heard good things I believe from more than one source.  So, that being said, when I'm done blogging this I'm off to add that to my New Year Resolution this year!   No spoilers please, but who has seen it and may I asked what you thought about it?
Hope you enjoyed it this week and don't forget, search and search, who's got sock monkeys?!!!!

2011, Farewell. (part 2)


I won't babble to much here in this one, at the beginning anyway.  You all know what I'm doing, by now, I guess, if not you can find  part 1 of this episode here.  It's the first quarter anyways of my 2011.  I'm linking it there wondering what if anything I will do for the next post.  Should I link part 1 and park 2? Probably so being as they're prolly going to be about a week apart, just to avoid overwhelming myself  you!


April, 2011

 Doesn't look like there was much else to take pictures of in the month of April, imagine that.  If I'm not mistaken though I moved out at the end of April and moved to the 'rents house.  That being after my breakup and Pokey and I packing everything into a Uhaul and storage building.  Strange times, but those are past us now.  For that I am glad. Easter was fun (always is) the kids just love coloring the eggs and waiting for me to finish hiding them so they can go on the hunt.  Always a blast, a tradition for us, though it holds no religious value at all in our (my) life.  It's just something fun to do!

May, 2011

I'm hoping the girls don't hate me for posting this one.  For the last couple of years my dear friend Teeray hosts a Maypole party in May. It's always a blast, some of us might drink a few drinks and run around the may pole in an awesome style fashion.  Yea that is what happened this year and if I remember correctly I may have been one of those who drank a little too much. But it didn't matter, because it was fucking EPIC.  It was yet another glorious event with my lovely friends.  This pic here is just of the ladies in attendance of the Maypole party, of course their man friends or hubbys were around there somewhere!  It was also the first real outing for the white dress I'm wearing!  About time I wore it out and hey, I shocked myself by not ruining it that night either.  AWESOME!

Terrible hair times for me, not only is it blond but it so desperately needs a trim.

MOTHERS DAY! 
We all got together this day, and managed to end up on the trampoline.  Got some awesome photos out of it though and the girls had a blast!  There were a lot of females on that trampoline and the baby just LOVED it! 








A much needed day out, well another one. Met one of my lady friends downtown for a seeing of Kite to the Moon (I think that's the name of it)  Pretty good band, he tossed out stuffed animals for some reason I am not sure.  There was some name to the event going on downtown but for the life  of me I can't recall what it was actually called.   Oh that sign says Athens Human Rights Festival, that's what it was called!  Whatever it was, it was an awesome time with friends! 




June, 2011


My niece celebrated her 7th birthday day.  Pokey (the one on the right) kinda looks pissed off. I'm not sure what that's all about.  My niece tends to spend the summers at Moma Monkey Butts house so looks like we went up there for the party. Awe and I'm sure it was so much fun. I love summer time!












Pokey and Monkey Butt go bowling.  Girl whooped my arse at bowling.  her and I were the only two people (aside from the employees) at the bowling place.  Jefferson, (where Moma Monkey Butt lives) is a small town with jack shit to do and well what little they do have isn't anything to write home about. But whatever, we enjoy our time when we can take it.

We need to take more of it!




So there we have it, coming into the summer months and nothing so far of any excitement.  Life is always exciting, but I remember 2010 I (we) did a lot of shit. Not so much in 2011 I guess.  I'm not sure that I'm complaining about that though.
We will see where the rest of the months lead us, stay tuned for more, next week!  Till then, enjoy all the other shit I'm posting this month,  damn busy month!  :))
