Redneck Target Practice

Did you ever wonder how those great guys in uniform perfect their target practice?

Scary

Maybe I had a wierd childhood upbring or I'm just plain wierd but this "singing house" just freaks me out. It's a little scary to me and it makes no difference what kind of music you put it to.

This would be......

9/11

This might be a little bit out of the blue but here is a website where you can listen to the tapes of the WTC attacks from Sept 11. This would be radio communication between dispatch centers, police, fire, EMS, etc...

I'm craving cupcakes.....

and maybe a movie......

Escape from reality for a second....

.......and try this "puzzling moving target".
I was a little disappointed.....it only took me a few seconds.
But then again, I'm brilliant.

And the sole winner of Survivor Guatemala is.......


Danni Boatwright is an aspiring sideline sportswriter. This article regarding her winning and what she plans to do was interesting to read. It talks a little about her family trying to figure out how far she went in the game....her emaciated figure and fresh bug bites tipped off most family members that she had gone deep into the competition.....

There is no way you could convince me that she didn't tell just one person how far she got.
"...Ok, promise you won't tell.......you have to pinky promise......"

Happy Birthday Jen!


I just happen to see this man live Friday night. Roger Creager. We took my best friend out for her birthday. She is old as crap! And he was nice enough to come back out after his set just to wish her a Happy Birthday, give her an autograph and pose for a picture with her. That was awesome. Of course, since I do hold the title of best friend to the birthday girl, I got to pose for a picture too.

Update


For my fans out there: I have officially started rehearsals in the next play I am in and I am really excited because the play is funny. I happen to be playing the role of a dumb blonde. This will take some serious work to make the part believable!
We are doing the female version.

Tired....


This is how I felt when I got home from my court appearance.
I was pulled over 6 years ago and received two tickets; one for speeding and one for no insurance. I tried to take care of them at the time and the court could find no record. I tracked the officer down and he turned it in again. I took care of it. Got a good deal on the speeding and the no insurance was dismissed after showing proof of my insurance. (Any clue where this is going?)
If you guessed it was entered twice you are correct my friend! It was entered the first time one letter off. And I lost my copy of the ticket sooooo........yada, yada.....I find myself on a failure to appear for a ticket I took care of 6 years ago!
I forgave them on the spot....afterall, I've made mistakes myself and was happy to hear that it was over!

I did it...


...I must mention that I could not hold out until Christmas Eve to give my kids their DVD player.
They stayed with Nana and Papa for a couple of days and I drove to meet Nana halfway. I decided before going that I would just hook it up and go.
So I pick them up...."Mom, this is awesome.....Is this really ours.....you are sooo cool!
Yeah, I know, I know...."
So it worked pretty good for awhile....
Then it starts with the 3 year old.....Mom, I can't hear it. I turn the radio down....Mom, I can't hear it. I check the connection on her headset blindly while driving, feels like it's in.....MOOMMM, I CAN'T HEAR IT!!!
Ok, Ok....I pull over. I get out of the car in the cold and look at it again, I check the connection-good. I listen myself, and I can hear just fine. I look at her and say I have no clue, honey, but it works now.
Ok, five miles later...same thing...same routine...I pull over again and look at her. HEY....keep the headset on your head and over yours ears and you will hear just fine! Oh, ok mommy.
I think the blonde thing just might be heriditary. Yikes......the blonde leading the blonde.
Sadly, we had the same conversation on the way to school this morning.

Is not.....


I found this picture and would just like to state for the record that this building is not retired. In fact, I will be standing before a Judge tomorrow begging for mercy from his court.

Would claiming "blondness" as a mental health problem be sufficient defense. Would they let me off the hook from a 6 year old speeding ticket and a no insurance ticket for that reason?
I should mention that I would have taken care of it had it not been for someone entering my last name one letter off. I checked and checked for weeks and even upset the little staff, and obviously to no avail! So the little trooper I am not....I gave up.

With my luck they'll just double the originally offered fine on both! We'll just have to wait and see.......

Another Shopping Thought....


The line I was in was very friendly. Since I sat there from 12:30 am until 5 am, the people behind me made sure I did a princess walk to get the first one. I received my DVD player, kissed it and paid.
I could not resist walking through electronics with my paid item death gripped in one hand and receipt tucked in a safe hiding place. It was pretty bad and I was so wide bewildered that it reminded me of the first (only) time I went cruising through the infield at a Nascar event at night. Pretty crazy.
It wasn't bad enough to be deathly scared, but I heard other places it was really bad.....
I'm not sure I would want to buy something bad enough to chance getting hurt.

Great "Chick Flick"


You would think after 2 days with no sleep from Turkey Day and "The Day After Shopping Spree" I would be snoring once I arrived at home. But I'm too blonde to think that sleep would cure my restless body. I watched Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. It was a great chick flick and I will admit that I cried throughout most of it. It was awesome. There were no big surprises or mysteries, it was just heart touching.
At 4:30am I finally went to sleep.

Happy Turkey Day!

I am thankful I did not pig out this Thanksgiving. I did gain a pound this week and I don't mind at all.
I can say that I was one of those shoppers the day after waiting in line all night. I arrived at Walmart at 12:30 am to get my hand on a blitz item. I was first in line for a dual screen portable DVD player for my kids to watch in the car. Sadly, this is probably the best Christmas present I have ever bought them. The chances are extremely high that this present will not get to see wrapping paper. In fact, I may let them have it tonight.
So if I do give it to them tonight, now what I am gonna put under the tree for Christmas?(Besides the typical baby dolls, fire trucks, etc...)
I think I like Easter better......only have to get an Easter Bunny, take them to an egg hunt and they're exicited.
Did I mention that my older daughter's friends think I'm really cool? This holiday puts alot of pressure on a mom.

I should have never watched that scary movie....


I think the name of it is Buried Alive. There's a sequel but I'm too scared to watch. I'm always afaird something like this will happen.
Maybe I should have listened to my mom and just stuck with her advice of only watching movies with the PG13 rating.

I think maybe my next post should be about puppies, kittens or flowers.

I'm confused. Surprised?


Why isn't this guy charged with murder?

Wednesday, November 16, 2005

I'm worried.

Which would frighten you more this one or perhaps this?

Maybe I should quit smoking and get a fish.

Edit: Something happened to the links I put on here and there not the same ones......
Yes, I am blonde....don't say I didn't warn you!

I love this song!!


With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.

They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Shut up. You know it's funny.

See, and they say men cannot multi-task......

British police confirmed that after Melvyn Reed woke from his triple bypass heart operation earlier this year, his complicated marital affairs took a turn for a worse. All three of his spouses had turned up at the same time, despite his efforts to stagger their visits.

Reed had turned himself in to police in Wimbledon, south London in the presence of his lawyer, and admitted he was a bigamist.
$126 fineHe pleaded guilty to two charges of bigamy on July 19 at the Wimbledon Magistrates' court, and was given a suspended sentence of four months in prison and ordered to pay 70 pounds ($126) in costs, police said.

Don't laugh too hard, a similar event happened to me.....

BOULDER, Colo. - Home Depot was sued by a shopper who claims he got stuck to a restroom toilet seat because a prankster had smeared it with glue.
Bob Dougherty, 57, accused employees of ignoring his cries for help for about 15 minutes because they thought he was kidding.
“They left me there, going through all that stress,” Dougherty told The (Boulder) Daily Camera. “They just let me rot.”

The lawsuit, filed Friday, said Dougherty was recovering from heart bypass surgery and thought he was having a heart attack when he got stuck at the Louisville store on the day before Halloween 2003. A store employee who heard him calling for help informed the head clerk by radio, but the head clerk “believed it to be a hoax,” the lawsuit said.
Home Depot spokeswoman Kathryn Gallagher said she could not comment on pending litigation.
The lawsuit said store officials called for an ambulance after about 15 minutes. Paramedics unbolted the toilet seat, and as they wheeled the “frightened and humiliated” Dougherty out of the store, he passed out.
The lawsuit said the toilet seat separated from his skin, leaving abrasions.
“This is not Home Depot’s fault,” he said. “But I am blaming them for letting me hang in there and just ignoring me.”

How sweet.....

...is my little girl.

Trick or treating the other night some kids showed up to our church's little trunk fest and we were out of candy. My child actually gave her candy away.

Monday, October 31, 2005

Halloween=Headache

Kids on a mission to get candy and still have to get homework, supper, baths, and bed. Yeah that will all happen by 1 am. The miracle of this season will be me getting to work on time tomorrow.

Wish me luck!!

I'm rich!

I made $100.83 last night at the second job and I was only there for 3 hours.

Not bad....

And the two tables that had the wrath of my plate throwing still tipped me.....

All this and I still got to watch my show!

I'm now famous

because I got to put my name in cement.

It doesn't really matter to me that I had to sneak it in there. I'm ok with that....people will come from all around to see it someday!

Someday should really hurry up. Gravity just can't win the race of reaching stardom! Then again there's always the defensive plastic surgery...........

........which is typical amongst us famous people!

I have green fungus between my toes.....

not really......

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with everything I got myself into. BUT I shall get it done.

Play reading committe
Girl Scout Troop Leader
Girl Scout Cookie Manager (for the whole County)
full time job
part time job
kids
new boat (now that it's cold outside!)
oh yeah...and I just got the script in the mail of the play I will be apart of in February-probably should read that a couple of times before we start meeting.

All I want is a nap....

OK....won't ask what else again.....

Thanks to the spider bite on my right shoulder that hurts........

Worst Day Ever

Do I dare ask what else can happen......

In 24 hours:

I was pulled over twice by DPS and then a city cop and given a ticket (only one),
I was bitten by a pit bull in the back of my leg,
my tire ripped apart-all the way-while passing another vehicle on a highway,
and my donut went flat.

The tire of course was in the middle of nowhere with NO cell phone service. The nearest town was 15 miles away. Once the donut was aired up, I just wanted out of that town. Almost to the city limit sign....I closed my eyes for one quick sec and took a deep breath......no place like home, no place like home.....thump, thump......I ran over a small animal! At this point....I could do nothing but cry.

The tire thing was cruel justice for my lead foot. It drove me crazy to go 50 mph all the way home.

Amber Fry in the Spotlight again

Amber Fry has captured attention again. The man that has been paying child support for the last four years has found out through a DNA test that he is NOT the little girl's father! Eeeek! So does she have to pay him back every penny?

Boondoggling and Bumfuzzling

A little exert from a newspaper led me to a new to me word. I thought maybe some one just made up this word until I looked it up in the dictionary. I was bumfuzzled when I found it is really a word. And if boondoggle is a word, then I was thinking bumfuzzled should be too. So just out of morbid curiosity I looked it up. IT IS!!

"WELCOME TO PARADISE The North Richland Hills City Council is having a budget planning retreat today and tomorrow at Garrett Creek Ranch in Paradise and some folks back home don't like the idea. City officials say the two-day session is all work and no play and they are trying to build consensus on budget items. Critics say it's a boondoggle and the distance makes it difficult for some residents to attend the sessions. The council should be more frugal, one critic told the Star-Telegram. " --Wise County Messenger Update

boondoggle
n : work of little or no value done merely to look busy v : do useless, wasteful, or trivial work

bum·fuz·zle ( P ) Pronunciation Key (bmfzl)tr.v. Chiefly Southern U.S. bum·fuz·zled, bum·fuz·zling, bum·fuz·zles
To confuse.

Once again, this should prove how easily amused I can be.

Amusing

I am so easily amused. I could sit for an hour and read the Taco Bell sauce packets. I ate there for lunch and the one I chose to use read, "do you put it on from right to left or left to right." I don't think it really matters, but it just makes me chuckle. Most of the sauce packets usually do. So I read this to my friend and she wanted to know what difference it made which direction you sauced your taco. I told her it was the same as which leg do you step into your pants first. It really makes no difference. So she says, ok and kind of like it does not make a difference which way you put the toilet paper on the roll.
Now that's just wrong. The proper way to put toilet paper on the roll is with the toilet paper rolling out from the top. Putting it on with it hanging out the bottom is just backwards.
I guess the point of all of that was that one can be just as easily annoyed as they are amused. But hey at least if you come to my house and use my bathroom, the toilet paper will be facing the correct direction. (Along with the canned vegetables alphabetized)

Smart Robber

A bank robber in Nebraska became smitten with the teller, who handed over the cash. When he phoned to arrange a date, she kept him on the line long enough for the police to trace his call.

Now that was really bright!

Bargain Shopping

Intro

I have never bogged before but I want to give it a try. I figure the one thing I know is blonde moments. I can sympathize with other victim's of blonde moments and feel their pain. So I vow to post regularly and help other's to not be victim's!
