First of all, Happy Fat Tuesday and Have A Great Day!
This week if full of 80's and 90's fashions. For more information click here:
Today's pics are from my 8th grade year birthday party. My friend Amy and I had the same birthday so we had a party together out in her dad's shop. I'm not in any of these. I must of been taking pics or up to no good. I went home with Amy after school and so did a few other girls and we started decorating. It was on a Friday night. One of the girls stole a bottle of vodka from her parents liquor cabinet and brought it. We all started drinking. This was prolly the first time we all experimented with alcohol. Little young, I know. We lived in a hick town and there was nothing else to do. One of the girls walked into the glass sliding door of the house. It was due to buzzing, but our parents just thought she was an airhead. LOL! Anyway, we didn't get caught that night. When I got home after the party my brother had came home drunk. It was his senior year. My parents didn't drink at all so it was a big shock to them. I felt so bad that night hearing my brother get grounded when I knew I was guilty for the same thing. At least he was older before he came home drunk. Well the day of my 8th grade graduation my mom found out. Some kids were talking and one of the mothers over heard and contacted all of our mothers. So, I was grounded. I almost didn't get to go to my dance. My mom did let me, but she was there and I was on my tip toes all night. I started my summer off grounded. I still did some drinking after that, but learned to be more sneaky and be careful of who I was around when I did it. LOL! So enjoy the pics from my party of the acid wash jeans, jams, tight rolled jeans and etc.
P.S. Excuse the guys in the background acting silly.

Harley Davidson Vs. Women
The inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven. At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur. "Since you've been such a good man and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is, you can hang out with anyone you want to in heaven."
Arthur thought about it for a minute and then said, "I want to hang out with God." St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room, and introduced him to God. God recognized Arthur and commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented the Harley-Davidson motorcycle?" Arthur said, "Yeah, that's me...." God commented: "Well, what's the big deal in inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution and can't run without a road?"
Arthur was apparently embarrassed, but finally spoke, "Excuse me, but aren't you the inventor of woman?" God said, " Ah, yes." "Well ," said Arthur, "professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention: 1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusion2. It chatters constantly at high speeds3. Most rear ends are too soft and wobble too much4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust5. The maintenance costs are outrageous!!!! "Hmmmmm, you may have some good points there," replied God, "hold on." God went to his Celestial supercomputer, typed in a few words and waited for the results. The computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it.
"Well, it may be true that my invention is flawed," God said to Arthur, "but according to these numbers, more men are riding my invention than yours.
In case you didn't already know so of us in blog land are having 80's/90's week. For more information click here:
I realized real quick when going through pictures, my mom has most of my younger pics. I started kindergarden in 1980 and finished junior high in 1989, so I don't have a lot of pics from the 80's to post. The 90's will be a different story. My favorite memory of clothes from the 80's would be tight rolled jeans (which I have some pics tommorrow of) with a fluorescent shirt and socks to match with KEDS tennis shoes and big hoop earrings (which I think are coming back, aren't they).

Some of us are posting 80's/90's pics this week. For more information click here:
Here's a list of 80's fad and fashion items we have compiled for your reference. From head to toe, you will find just about every fad and fashion of the 80s below. Mesh Hair Ties The piece of white or black mesh girls tied in their hair. We can thank Madonna for this style. Temporary Hair Dye Colorful hair in the 80's were a must. This invention let you change your hair color from day to day. Headbands From Pat Benetar to Mike Reno...This was a hot style! Ponytail for Men Popular with the yuppies. Hair Crimping Kind of looked like you had your hair braided for a week. Mousse Lots of body for your hair! Helmet-Haired Bangs Loni Anderson...Need I say more? Neat Look for the Guys Preppy would be the best word to describe this. Banana Clips And still used today! Who says the 80's are dead? Mohawk Haircuts Very attractive, 'eh? Barrettes w/ things Dangling from Them Girls wove ribbons through, usually two different colors, and hung beads on the end of the ribbon. You could also buy theses barrettes ready-made and some even had FEATHERS hanging from them Princess Di Haircuts Poor Di! Miss her! Crazy Hair Colors Pink, blue, purple, red, yellow and so on. Tails You remember...The short or long 5 pieces of hair running down your back. RayBan's Made famous from the Tom Cruise movie 'Risky Business'. Flat Top Haircuts for Guys Some cuts were a little off to the side like Bobby Brown. He also had a line cut on his head. Don't know if this was a fad for the bros. Rooster Bangs Look Rooster Bangs Are bangs that are cut so they stand up and frizz out. Big Hair Lots of hairspray and teased up high! Gotta love it! Skater Haircut Shaved on one side and all the hair hanging on the other side. BIG Hair Bows Another essential Madonna accessory! Colored Mascara/Eyeliner Always extra thick! Blue, purple were the popular colors used. Painter Type Hats With the tails off the back Bandanas Any color tied anywhere would make you fit in just about anywhere circa 1984. (i.e.. David Lee Roth) Green Lipstick Turned pink when you put it on. Pierced Ears Lots of earrings for the girls. For the guys - Left ear your straight, right ear you were not so straight. :) Blue Eye Shadow Not only was mascara and eyeliner blue, but also above chick's eyes! We've even seen yellow used in some cases! Shoelace Hairclips Women's hairclips in which they came multicolored, metallic, or solid print Popular in late 80's, early 90's. Bright Neon/Fluorescent Shirts Orange, yellow, fuchsia, green, etc. with the matching socks , earrings and hair scarves. Pastel T-Shirts Pink was very popular for the guys. Also came in just about any other color in the rainbow. Champion Sweatshirts Pretty much self explanatory. Another one still sold today. Torn Workout Top Those maniac chicks, gotta love 'em! Some workout tops were also cut on the bottom to expose the stomach area. Most were worn off the shoulder. Slogan T-shirts With words like Go-Go, Relax, Boy Toy, etc. For 80s t-shirts visit 80stees.com! Jean jackets Levis were popular and still are in some areas of the country. Some people even painted their favorite rock band album covers on the back of their Levis denim jackets. Army jackets Camouflage was in almost as much as the Miami Vice style blazers. Michael Jackson Thriller Jacket Just like the one he wore in his video. Sleeveless shirts These were sleeveless but cut all the way down the side so they they were open. Clothing with keyboards up and down the sleeves Pretty snazzy 'eh? Members Only Jackets Had to have every color remember? OP (Ocean Pacific) T-shirts For the surfer in you! Izod Shirts In every color of the rainbow. Some wore them with collars turned up. Argyle Vests So preppy! Skinny Ties Those leather ones were soooooo cool! Knit Ties Skinny of course! Bolos Leather cords with a piece of metal, plastic, etc. holding them together at the neck. Power Ties Bold and classical ties for those power lunches. Long Shirts Usually the more full figured gals wore these. Cardigan Sweaters with shirts underneath Most of the time, not tucked in. Paisley Shirts Paisley was in with the new wave crowd as well as other cliques. Black, collared shirts Usually buttoned all the way to the top. Shirts with zippers Some of these had buttons as well. The zippers or buttons were put on the shirts in a way that it opened diagonally from the shoulder area. When opened the shirt would have this triangular shape flapping on your chest. Laced Crop Tops With bra underneath. If a white lace - white bra. If black lace - black bra Hawaiian Shirts Lots of flowers and loud colors... Aloha! Rugby shirts Colored sleeves with sweatshirt gray or white for the body of the shirt. Black Rock Band T-Shirts Same as below, just with the sleeves. Sleeveless Rock Band T-Shirts Headbangers unite! AC/DC, Metallica, Poison, Ratt, Ozzy. To name a few. T-Shirt Clips They looked like a ring with a bar through the middle and you threaded the bottom of your shirt through them. Shaker Knit Sweaters Shaker Knit refers to the type of stitch used to make these sweaters. If you saw Hunt for Red October, the dark sweater Jack wears is a shaker knit sweater. Hang Out Oxfords with Big Belts to Cinch With matching socks over stirrup pants. Wearing collars up on polo shirts & blouses 3 words... Preppy...preppy...preppy! Polo Shirts with collars (collars usually worn pulled up) Plenty of colors to choose from - pastels were a favorite preppy color. Underwear as Outerwear As worn by Madonna, Annie Lennox & Cyndi Lauper Navy Blue Down-Filled Vest - Sleeveless Winter, summer, spring and fall - this was in. Blouse or Gown with Buttons Also with feathers, rhinestones - usually tracing up and down one sleeve Air Brushed Shirts Saw lots of couples wearing these in High School with their mate's name on them. Couple of hearts, etc. Flojos Rubber sandal type of things called "Flojos". This was the brand that made them. Peter Pan Boots Short, suede boots that all girls wore with their pin stripe jeans tucked into Gasoline Jeans Grey on one side, denim blue on the other. An interesting combo! Scrunch Socks Different colors and layer them oppositely on each foot. For example; one foot would have a pink then a purple on top and the scrunched part would be on the bottom half then the other foot would be purple with pink on top with the pink on the bottom half. Dangeling belts In pastel and neutral colors - People commonly wore 2 or 3 belts at a time. Corduroy pants Brown, white, blue. We've also seen red Levis corduroy pants back in our awesome decade! Argyle socks Knee high socks with colorful diamond pattern, all diamonds were connected with stripes-zigzag pattern. typically came in colors of red, yellow, navy and hunter green. Matched your argyle sweater (v neck). Socks usually had no pattern on toe or heel portion. Striped Levi's jeans Had to be tight too! Different color denim were also used. Black, light blue, dark blue, etc. Button-fly Levis jeans And one of the most popular jeans still worn today! Acid washed jeans Nice and light. The more holes in your jeans, the better! (i.e. Kip Winger) Reebok high-tops With no or untied laces. Parachute Pants Made out of nylon with lots of zippers! Adidas Shoes Hmmmmm, can you say Run DMC? Jordache - Chic - Sergio Valente' - Calvin Klein - Gloria Vanderbuilt - Sasson - Guess Jeans Oooooh La La! "Designer" jeans were all the rave in the '80s. Most brands had certain designs on the back pockets like Jordache and Sergio Valente'. All worn very tight and straight legged. Vans!!! I remember seeing checkerboard and multi-color styles in High School. Adidas or OP pants With the drawstring - no zipper. Penny Loafers Had to have these. Top Siders Another one that I still see around today. Capezios Capezios are shoes - they're like dance shoes and became popular shortly after Flashdance came out. They were usually white. For those who didn't know like me! It reminded me of the next one. Chinese Slippers The little black shoes all (well most of) the girls wore them. Converse Chuck TaylorHigh -Tops Wild colored high top sneakers worn not only by basketball players. Mini Skirts Short plaid, ruffled on the bottom, etc. skirts women wore. "Pegged" Jeans You folded the bottom of the jeans over first to make them narrow, then rolled them up, so they were "pegged." Sweatpants Tucked into tube socks with the bottoms puffing out. Legwarmers Flashdance made these even more popular than they already were! Jelly shoes Brightly colored. Poofy Pants With the tapered bottom. Some had lots of pockets and zippers and/or buckles. Hammer time! Ripped Jeans Usually in slits and tight - the more slits the better! Keds Again, popular in the mid to late 90's. White with the little blue Keds emblem on the back. Plastic shoes They were usually pastel colors, they were really cheap, and they hurt like hell! Hurraches Leather woven sandals. Short skirts with bike shorts underneath Who says you can't ride a bike with a short skirt? Although chicks also wore this to clubs. Another Madonna ensemble. Floods Pants that ended before your ankles did. Zuba shorts and pants Pants with multi-colored zebra-like stripes. they come in colors of athletic teams. Spandex Lots of it too! A stretchy fabric that molds to your skin. Pants or shorts were usually made of this fabric. Stonewashed Gap Jeans Faded before you bought 'em. These were so bodacious! Surfer Pants Usually light in color and fabric with a little string in the front to tie. Madonna Gloves From the Like a Virgin era. Also Crosses were big and whatever Madonna wore, the chicks wore too. Cut Socks as Gloves Cutting off the ends of sweat socks (usually the kind with the different color rings at the top of the sock) and wearing them as wristbands. A lot of the punks did this. It's funny-you see the guy in the movie Salt Lake City Punks wearing these. Polka Dots! Shirts, suspenders, socks, etc. Different colors. Jelly /Gummy Bracelets Those were the thin plastic bracelets that girls would wear tons of at a time - and rings. The Preppy Look Short hair (for the guys), penny loafers, argyle socks, Polo shirts with the collar sticking up. This description could go on and on! You get the idea. Big Obnoxious plastic comb With solid or swirling colors, usually kept it in your back pocket. Pet Rock An ordinary rock with plastic eyes on it. This goofy fad made someone millions of dollars and a place in history! Mexican dresses Maybe this was subject to geography - Texas. Jimmy-z and Z-Cavaricci clothing They were extremely multi-colored "knitted" sweaters that looked more like a tangled knot that just happened to be in the shape of a sweater. No rhyme or reason, and they were often lumpy looking. Similar to the sweaters Bill Cosby wore on his show. Slap Bracelets Slap bracelets were about an inch wide with metal on the inside and colored cloth on the outside. They were in bright colors and were straight and when you hit them on your wrist they bent around your wrist like a bracelet. Jams Jams were multi colored shorts -- guys mostly wore them. They were like the Hawaiian shirts only for the bottom. Most guys wore them without socks, and sandals of some kind. The preppy look for those hot summer days! Multiple Outfits These were interchangeable multi-colored cotton clothes that were often cinched with a a sash. Also - anything really busy, clashing and eye popping! Skateboarding Very popular even today! Snowboarding Another very popular sport (we guess you can call it a fad). One of our visitors wrote in saying, "HOT guys do snowboarding, Weird guys do skateboarding. ;) Friendship Pins/Bracelets Pins were often worn on sneaker laces and denim jackets. Coke clothes, jeans, accessories Have a Coke and a smile! Or was it, Coke is it? In any case, these clothes were in! Twisty Bead necklaces Thin beaded necklaces, lots of different colors, you would twist them together and clasp them in the back with a clip. You could also make them long by doubling one in the back and connecting it on the side with a clip. Any self respecting 80's chic had twisty beads in EVERY color. They were great to wear with your izod shirt and polo shirts. Collars up, of course! Bennetton Benetton first hit around 1988 - a new clothing line, all about colors, animal prints, and jeans. Alot of denim matching ensembles. It was a had to have line, like Guess, Esprit and L.A. Gear. Camp Beverly Hills It was cheap women's perfume. Loves Baby Soft was also popular. Banana Republic Banana Republic, before they became the upscale Gap they are today, launched in 1987 or so with a safari theme. It was all khaki's and t-shirts with jungle animals on them, and, of course, bananas. Most of the stores were decorated in rattan wood, with fake trees and a jeep in the middle of the store. Jordache Purses Those little $3 crescent-shaped Jordache purses with the skinny string shoulder strap. They were made out of a really lightweight vinyl/tyvek kind of material -- it had the Jordache horse-head logo stamped on it. They came in lots of colors (metallic too) Plastic Spring Bracelets Those neon colored plastic spring bracelets (I believe there were necklaces & earrings, too) Shopping at The Limited Anything Forenza or Outback Red! Roach Clips w/ feathers dangling Roach clips with feather hanging off of them, they were attached to your belt loop. Never know when you might need something like this! Pop Balls This is not what you are thinking (get your mind out of the gutter). These were rubber balls that you turned inside out, laid them on the floor and watched them pop up. Creepy Crawlers Throw them on the wall and watch them slowly crawl back down. Ewww, Creepy! :) Code Bleu clothes Dexters A deck (boat type) shoe. Jeri Curls Popular for the African Americans (mostly men). Looked like a shiny, wet perm. See: Michael Jackson, circa "Beat It" video; also see: Eddie Murphy's "Coming to America" movie with it's Jeri curl parody (featuring today's ER's Eriq LaSalle), "Soul Glow". The term Jeri Curl was named for the solution you sprayed in your hair to get the desired effect. Punk Made popular from bands like the Clash - Mohawks, chains, make up, etc Flashdance Look Ripped pants, shirts, strapped shirt under a sweatshirt. Ohhh sexy! Valley Girl Look Hair that was shorter (spiked or curly) on top and a little longer in the back, head bands (usually stripped) that matched our fitted stripped tops, mini skirts of mini skirt-dresses, big earrings, bright colors, belts (around our hips - first made big by Mike Hutchence in the "One Thing" video, usually doubled). And let us not forget leg-warmers! New Wave Stuff New Wave was in reference to music culture (i.e., Pet Shop Boys, Dead or Alive, Erasure, Duran Duran, Echo and the Bunnymen, etc) - fashion-wise, look at any of the previously mentioned bands and they're videos, and think: feminine guys with make-up and teased hair (before Poison-like glam rock), Creepers shoes, Long duster coats (i.e.., Boy George), little bowler-like black hats and eye-liner, a lot of black-and-white accessorizing. See: "Ducky" in "Pretty in Pink";, a reference made in "SLC Punk" (during the slide show about who beats up who - the New Waver's don't beat up anyone). Swatch Watches Went well with the plastic bracelets. Was accompanied by other Swatch watches. Sometimes worn with more than one watch. Michael Jackson Glove Couldn't even believe I actually saw people with this on. Miami Vice Look Well padded blazer with a pastel T-shirt under, etc. Shoes with no socks. "Puffy" silver hearts Jewelry - "puffy" heart pendants for necklaces. Generra Generra is a brand name, they made men's' clothes and those "hyper color" t-shirts. Vision Street Wear Skateboarding gear - T-shirts, caps, beanies, shoes, skateboards and more! Huge clocks Wore around the neck. Usually worn by rap members. Anything Neon Pretty self explanatory. Socks, Shirts, Hair accessories, bracelets, shoe laces, etc.
Last week I got an email from a name I didn't recognize. It was just a joke forwarded. I started looking through the distribution list trying to think who this was. It was my ex-husband's best friend's wife. I hadn't talked to her in years. She had a different email than before and must of still had me in her distribution list. While going through the distribution list I noticed a female with my old married name on there. I got curious. I did some investigation via internet on the email address. It was a work email. The company was in the same city as the last known city my ex husband was in. The mailing address is the same P.O. Box as the mailing address I last had for him. Could it be a new wife? If so this will be the third one. He is only 33 years old. Third times a charm, hun? It was just Freaky to me. At least I have an idea (if my assumptions are correct) where he is so I know not to go anywhere close to there. I feel sorry for this poor girl if she is married to him. The upside, I have a new address to tell his bill collectors that find me. Hehehehe! I'm sneaky that way.
If you are interested in joining in on the Friday fun of Freaky Friday, please join in. For more information click here:
Also, hope you will join in on the 80's/90's theme next week. For more information click here:

A West Texas cowboy was herding his cattle in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud toward him. the driver, a young man in a Broni suit, gucci shoes, Ray Ban sun glasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy," If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd will you give me a calf?"
The cowboy looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, Why not?"
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his AT&T cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite navigation system to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man then opens the digital in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany. Within seconds, he recieves an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses a SQL database through an odbc connected Excel spreadsheet with email on the Blackberry and after a few minutes, receives a response.
Finally, he puts oyt a full-color, 150 page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP Laserjet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves".
" That's right. Well I guess you can take one of my calves," says the cowboy. He watched the young man select one of the animals and looks on in amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then the cowboy says to the young man, "Hey, If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says "Okay, why not?"
"you're consultant for the National Democrat Party." says the cowboy.
"Wow! That's correct." says the yuppie, But how did you know that?'
"No guessing required," answered the cowboy. "you showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already know, to a question I never asked; and you don"t know anything about my business....Now, give me back my dog."
*For more funnies go to my videos on the side bar.
I have controversial question for today’s post. I hate to end the week all serious, but I am. I will prolly post something else later today that is lighter. Either way I’ll have a Freaky Friday story coming in a bit. As always, if you are here for Friday funnies you can go to my sidebar to Places I Frequent and check out the newest funnies videos for laughter.
Here is my question. Do you believe that if someone can’t say something nice they shouldn’t say anything at all? I was brought up this way. I’m sure I may say something rude to people and not realize it and if I have ever done this to any of you, I want to apologize right now. I am truly sorry.
Do you know of anyone that ever makes comments and you just think to yourself how rude? Does it make it any better when you call them out on it and there reaction was they were just kidding? Joking around is fun. I love joking as much of anybody. When this is a constant thing a person does and it is always their explanation that they were just joking, does it get old quick? Is it is a sign of immaturity or insecurity on the rude person’s behalf or is it the person receiving the rude comment being overly sensitive? Could it be a little of both?
I would like to know everyone’s comments, complaints and thoughts on rude people. I read an article awhile back that said a certain percentage of people that said something kidding really meant it. I don’t mean the statistics, but there was a high percentage. Basically it was like 90% of what most people saying kidding they really mean, but say it kidding to not sound so rude. I believe this. I know Superspy had a post the other day about rude people so she should definitely have a good comment. Also PPP has been dealing with a rude woman at work. Just want a general census on rude people. So, comment away and have a great Friday and even better weekend to come!
Edit: For next week theme go to EE's post for information.
HIM: Yes. Why? What's going on?
ME: Is anyone around?
HIM: No, baby, what do you need? What is wrong?
ME: Can you jack off any time or do you need advance notice?
HIM: What? What are you talking about?
ME: I got you an appmt at the md tommorrow so you don't have to go to the clinic. Plus you can't have sex 2 days prior to giving the specimen so it is a good time to go since we haven't had sex in 2 days.
HIM: I guess.
ME: You will have to go straight from work. You won't have time for a shower. Is this a problem or would it make it easier to jack off after a shower, cuz I don't know what you need or don't need prior to jacking off?
HIM: If I have to go tommorrow I will, but if I could go next week that would be better.
ME: Okay, I'll call back and see if I can reschedule for next week. Maybe I can get a later one so you can shower first if that what you need to do to make it happen.
That is what I'd truly like to be.
'Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer Wiener,
Ev'ryone would be in love with me
Sorry for this long, drawn out post, but this really urks me. If you aren't in the mood for seriousness today, skip this post and go down to the next one titled HUMP DAY. It is much less serious. Yes, you have an option today. LOL! Have a great day!
What were you like at 21? If you are older than 21 now. I was a partier, don’t get me wrong, but I was responsible. I worked my butt off. I was there everyday and on time. Prior to 21 I worked full time and went to school. I paid for all my living expenses (I lived on my own) and paid for all my schooling.
Max’s sister just turned 21 last month. She lives at home for the third time and works part-time and no schooling this semester. Let me give you a little background. She was a great soccer player and was offered a full ride to college out of high school. She didn’t want to go to that school because some chic on her team at her present high school wasn’t her favorite person. She had another partial scholarship to a local school to play soccer too. She strung the local school out until they finally gave the scholarship to someone else.
Well she ended up going off to School about 1 ½ hr away from home and moved in wit a childhood friend. That latest (1) semester. She came home. She went to school here for less than (10) hours a week and didn’t work. She finally got a job, but then had to cut down to (2) classes a week, cuz no one understood how hard it was to go to (2) classes, work part time and have a social life. She really had it hard, hun?
At one of her part time jobs she met a guy. This is like the 3rd or 4th guy since I have known her that she swears is the one and she is going to marry him. Anyway, they ended up moving in together so I helped her get another job that was more stable. Again, she only works afternoons. She opted to work part time again. She is still only taking (2) classes at this time. Well her friend goes into the service and talks her into wanting to go. Oh, btw – this is after she has already cheated on this guy she is living with and split up with him a couple of times and he treats her like a queen.
She then decides the only way she won’t leave for the services (let me inform you she never even enlisted or anything) is if her boyfriend proposed. She told him that. The next thing we knew, she calls and says he is getting to serious and she moved back home. Okay, do you see the double standard confusion we have now? Well she has called and left me a message now that he has proposed and they are going to look at rings.
I don’t know if she has moved back in with him or not. She said he took her to look at rings on V-day and she thought they were for V-day, but he told her to look at bigger ones to get married. She picked out two and told him to decide which. So he put money down and is paying the ring out. Now, they are wanting to look for a house. He only makes a $9.00 hour.
How do you handle this kind of immaturity? Also I feel so sorry for this guy. He really thinks she hung the moon and he is so awesome to her. She has a lot of growing up to and some major relationship problems to figure out. Is it natural to be so immature at 21? Does everyone grow up differently at different ages?
For Hump Day, here are some funnies to get you started:
A Texas redneck was stopped by a game warden in East Texas recently with two ice chests of fish, leaving a river well known for its fishing. The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?" "Naw, my friend, I ain't got no license. These here are my pet fish."
"Yep. Every night I take these fish down to the river and let 'em swim 'round for a while. Then I whistle and they jump right back into this ice chest and I take 'em home." "That's a bunch of BS! Fish can't do that!" The redneck looked at the game warden for a moment and then said, "It's the truth. I'll show you. It really works." "Okay, I've GOT to see this!" The redneck poured the fish into the river and stood and waited. After several minute! s, the game warden turned to him and said, "Well?"
"Well, what?" said the redneck. "When are you going to call them back?" "Call who back?" "The FISH!" "What fish?"
Fresh from my shower, I stand in front of the mirrorcomplaining to myhusband that mybreasts are too small. Instead of characteristically telling me it'snot so,he uncharacteristicallycomes up with a suggestion. "If you want your breasts to grow, theneveryday take a piece of toilet paper and rub it between them for a fewseconds."Willing to try anything, I fetch a piece of toilet paper and stand infrontof the mirror, rubbing it between my breasts."How long will this take?" I asked"They will grow larger over a period of years," my husband replies.I stopped. " Do you really think rubbing a piece of toilet paperbetween mybreasts every daywill make my breasts larger over the years?"Without missing a beat he says "Worked for your butt, didn't it?"He's still alive, and with a great deal of therapy, he may even walkagain.Stupid, stupid man.
My wife left me...
I don't understand.
After the last child was born, she told me we had to cut back on expenses - I had to give up drinking beer. I was not a big drinker, maybe a 12-pack on weekends.
Anyway, I gave it up but I noticed the other day when she came home from grocery shopping the receipt included $45 in makeup.
I said, "Wait a minute I've given up beer and you haven't given up anything!"
She said, "I buy that makeup for you, so I can look pretty for you."
I told her, "Hell, that's what the beer was for!"
I don't think she'll be back

I was going to write about this subject yesterday, but didn't get around to it. It was icy here and I was slammed at work. Anyway, I went to my girly doctor last week for my annual exam. We started discussing "babies". In less than a month I'll be 31 and no babies. It isn't from lack of trying. So we decided to to start doing some testing. Not that there is anything wrong, but just to checking the plumbing out so to say so when we get really serious we will know. It took my mom a long time to get pregnant so it could just be hereditary. Anyway, they did a cervix test last week to make sure it was open and it was. They gave me paperwork and Max gets to go give a specimen. He was cool with it. His only question was, "do they supply the magazine or do I need to take my own?". Anyway, they were closed yesterday and we haven't got that scheduled yet. We have to make some calls to see if he is going to the clinic my doctor referred and pay $96.00 or if see if his md can do this with the insurance co-pay or refer his to someone who can. So just trying to keep this cheap basically. I am scheduled to go to the hospital next Friday afternoon for a HSG test. For more information click here. This is an outpatient x-ray type of deal. They shoot die into your tubes and uterus to make sure everything is flowing correctly and there is no blockage or major scar tissue or etc. Then I go back to the girly doctor in (6) weeks. My period is always like clock work and it decided to be a freak of nature and start early this time. YUCK! So, all testing has been moved up quicker than I thought is why I didn't bring this up quicker. The main reason I'm bringing this up now, is because I could be blogging periodically about everything going on and especially if I ever have to start taking hormone pills. If I did that I could be crazier than I am now. LOL! So, I just wanted to give you all the background of the story now and fore warn you for the future. If anyone has an experiences or information or comments on any of this, please share them with me. Have a good day!
P.S. I'll post something funny and off the wall later today.
EDITED: I just spoke to my insurance company and they don't pay for this test. What should I do? I have a call into the doctor office to find out an out-of-pocket price.
Let's get this Monday started. How would you like to play a game of B.S. (bull shit)? Here is the directions. Examine each picture below and in comments, tell me which pic you think is B.S. You may have to examine the pictures very carefully to figure this one out. Be careful with one of them if you are at work. Now, have fun playing and let me know which you call B.S. on. Have fun!
If you haven't split your sides laughing lately, you've got to listen to this! It's a phone call from a man in Texas who witnessed a car accident involving 4 elderly women. It was so popular when they played it on CHUM FM that they had to put it on their site. The intro says the man called his friend to tell him about the accident, but it sounds like the man was in the midst of leaving a message on his friend's machine when the accident happened and he stayed on the phone to give aplay-by-play.......hilarious!Click on the link & turn up the speakers (you have to listen pretty closely to understand what the guy is saying) -
To all my dearest friends,
I need some help. My cousin's cat had kittens and he was able to give away all but 3 of them. I told him I would help him find homes for the last 3. I can't take one because I am allergic, but if three of you could take just one it would be such a help and the kittens could have a nice home. Since he lives by the Nuclear Power Plant, I'll go pick them up for you. I've attached pictures of the last 3 kittens. Will you help ?

WHAT DOES A KISS TASTE LIKE?
One day a teacher had a taste test with her students. She picked a little boy to do the first test. She blindfolded him, put a Hershey kiss in his mouth and asked, "Do you know what it is?" "No, I don't,"said the little boy. "Okay, I'll give you a clue. It's the thing your daddy wants from your Mom before he goes to work." Suddenly, a little girl at the back of the room yelled, "Spit it out! It's a piece of ass!"

A guy is 71 years old and loves to fish. He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, "Pick me up." He looked around and couldn't see any one. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, "Pick me up." He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog. The man said, "Are you talking to me?" The frog said, "Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up. Then, kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll then give you more sexual pleasure that you ever could have dreamed of." The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front breast pocket. Then the frog said, "What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will give you sexual pleasures like you have never had." He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, "Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog."

Well, I decided to change the temperature in here. I have told my totally "hot" night below. If you still want to comment you are welcome, but I'm turning down the thermostat for a bit. Now I would like to share some really "cold" refrigerator magents for women. I can relate to so many. I'm loving these. What do you think?
Last night was special, cuz we were together, but other than that it sucked. We had made dinner reservations at a local bar weeks ago and was going to once again see an Elvis impersonaotor. We won't plan anything like that again. When we originally bought tickets Max's dad wanted to go. I did mind him getting a ticket, cuz some of my family and etc would be there. Well Max talked to him Monday night and his dad said he wanted to know what time we were living. Max told him 6:00 pm. He said he didn't think he could be at our house in time. He had to finish a job and would have to take a shower at our house. Well Max didn't hear from him anymore so we assumed that I paid for a ticket that wasn't going to be used. So I left a little early from work and rushed home and jumped in the shower. I'm naked in the hall bathroom and Max is shaving in our bathroom and the doorbell rings. I tell Max to get it cuz I'm not dressed. It was 5:55 pm and Max and I were rushing and decided we both could be ready by 6:10 at the latest. It was his dad. So Max gave him his bathroom in our room to take a shower. Well I couldn't get into our room then to get my bra or clothes on to finish my hair. I was wearing my hair up and had to have my blouse on before completing it. So we finally got to leave about 6:45. So I was already a little put out. We got there and had to stand in line in the chili wind outside to fill out membership cards. It took about 15 to get in. Then we had to wait in line over 30 minutes to get our tickets, then another 15 from the ticket booth to inside the door to get sitted. Crazy, hun? Well we had (14) tickets all together in my name. They screwed up the sitting. We had (10) at one table and were supose to have (4) at another. They messed up the other (4). The guy sitting us was supose to get a manager for me. A manager never came instead a young girl came up with an attitude. She said the table where the (4) was supose to sit wasn't the one the host to them too, but this other one which only had (3) chairs available. She talked to the couple not me (the reservations were all in my name) and said she would try to find another chair and be back. After 45 min I went and got another host and explained this situation and he called the manager over. The manager called that girl over and she told him she had taken care of it with Ms. "R". I said have you ever spoke to me? She said no. I said well, I'm Ms. "R" and you haven't handled it. Then she said well I meant I had been over there and spoke to Mr. "R" 3 times. I said no haven't. There isn't no Mr. "R". The manager looked at me like I was a liar and informed me that I was luck we even had a table because due to our big party he should have sitted us further back. The (4) that didn't have sits was "Elvis's" neighbors. The work with my uncle. I told the manager I wasn't happy with this. I knew it was a busy night, but this should be a special occasion and there is nothing special for us. He told me he had to fit 700 people in and he couldn't do everything and I should expect some mistakes. I told him I did expect some, but to make reservations and not have sits was unacceptable and he should go management school. He got pissey and I got pissey. Well our waitress never took our drink orders and cleaned up. So Max did all the beer runs and I did all the cleaning up and taking bottles and boxing them at the bar. It took 1 1/2 hr to get our food. The steak was dry. We asked for steak sauce and never got it. Finally after the first set we decided to go home. It was a little after 10 pm. He had 3 sets total. It took another hour to get our check. Our waittress called the woman sitting behind us a effin "B". On the way out the host/bouncer that I talked to that got the manager apologized to me for the way the manager acted. He heard it all. We ended up getting home about 11:30 and Max's dad invited himself to stay all night. So I can to get his aspirin out and a drink and wait on him after we got home. Then I sit down on the couch to relax after changing and Max's dad was sitting on the recliner snoring while Max was in bed. Max's dad finally woke up and went to bed and asked me to wake him this morning. So then I got the pleasure of getting ready around this morning, which meant I had to get up earlier and I ended up going to bed about 1:30 am. So, yes I am bitchy today. LOL! Max already called to check on me and he was sweet. We agreed to go to bed early tonight. So, how was your evening?
P.S. I have a video clip from my camera of the guy singing. He really looked and sounded like him. I just don't know how to post it on here. If any ideas, please email me.
We took my (13) year old cousin Caitlin and my (9) year old niece to the Dallas World Aquarium on Sunday. I thought I would post some of our pics. Hope you enjoy!
I watched several movies this weekend when my cousin and niece came over and thought I'd give you my reviews:
1. Brokeback Mountain - I watched this alone. I really enjoyed it, but didn't think it had a big plot like alot of love stories. It really showed how times have changed. What is acceptable somewhat by society today wasn't acceptable back then. There was beautiful scenary and Heath and Jake were both hotties!
2. Prime - This is hiliarious. It is a good chick flick. It is a romantic comedy about a woman going through a divorce and seeking a psychologist for help. She meets an younger man which the psychologist encourages her to "do". Well come to find out it was the pyschologist's son.
3. Good Friends - This is another romantic comedy. It is the basic high school geek that is stuck in the "friends zone" with the hot chic. He comes home 10 years later and he a hot stud. Everything he does to impress her he screws up. In the end, she loved him for who he was the whole time.
Well, this is my movie review from the weekend.
It is Monday. Take one of these and call me in the morning.
Mondays suck! Welcome back to work! Hope you all had a great weekend! I can't wait to hear what all you did. I'm going into a meeting and will be blogging about mid morning. Have a great day!
You probably don't realize it, but your computer screen must be cleaned each day. The cleaning should be on the inside of the glass as well as the outside. This is difficult to do. So I am sending a cleaning device which should do the trick.
Move the mouse around the screen to clean.

When Ralph first noticed that his penis was growing larger and staying erect longer, he was delighted, as was his wife. But after several weeks, his penis had grown to nearly twenty inches. Ralph became quite concerned. He was having problems dressing,and even walking. So he and his wife went to see a prominent urologist.After an initial examination, the doctor explained to the couple that, though rare, Ralph's condition could be fixed through corrective surgery. "How long will Ralph be on crutches?" the wife asked anxiously."Crutches? Why would he need crutches?" responded the surprised doctor. "Well," said the wife coldly, "you're gonna lengthen his legs, aren't you?"
It was July 26, 1992 and the summer between my junior and senior high school. My friend Lori and I had went out the night before with my friend Devin about a hour and half away to a stock show. Devin was trying to cheer me up because I had a bad auto accident on June 26, 1992 and while being in the hospital my boyfriend had dumped me. I'm sure Devin was trying to get down my pants too. LOL! Anyway, we left the stock show and was driving home about 1:30 am, when Devin had a flat tire. By the time we got it changed and back on the road again we didn't get home (Home meaning my house) till about 4:00 am in the morning. Lori was staying the night with me and my mom asked Devin to stay in our guest room since it was so late. About 7:00 am my telephone rung. I had a different telephone than my parents and my phone number was listed where my parents were unlisted. It was a guy on the phone and he asked if this was "NAME OF MY DAD" family. I said yes and I was half asleep. He said it was an emergency and he needed to speak to my mother. I jumped out of bed with a really bad feeling. I ran into her room half dressed. I stood there listening to her. She hung up and said your dad has had a heart attack. Well he had a series of heart attacks at 32 and now he was 42. Mom told me I needed to stay home and she rushed to the hospital. About 30 minutes later she called and told me to put either Devin or Lori on the phone. She asked Lori to stay at our house and handle calls and asked Devin to drive me to the hospital. I walked in and they asked if I wanted to see him. The ambulance had already brought him in and they had bagged him on the way to the hospital. He was already dead before the ambulance had gotten there. We all went back to see him. He laid there with his face in a shade of blue. My mom passed out. It was the most devasting the day of my life. His business partner and him had met for breakfast like always. His partner said he heard a noise like my dad reaching for something under the table. The next thing he knew he heard his pill bottle drop to the ground and my dad fell over. A guy in the restaurant tried chest compressions, but it didn't work. We found out later that my dad had an appmt already scheduled with the doctor and didn't tell my mom and I so he wouldn't worry us. I wish he would of told us he had been having more heart attacks. Maybe there would of been something we could do. This made me grow up real fast. We went from the "upper class" family to no income. My mom had never worked and they didn't have much of a life insurance policy. After that is took my mom working full time making $8 hour, me in high school working part time making $10.00 hour and my social security check from my dad's death to make ends meet. It was so upsetting to my mom not to have any skills and her teen age daughter made more than she did. This really thought me to be independent and not ever count on anyone. Also, you never know when something may happen to be prepared with the proper insurance. I griefed and worked myself to death through this. I really think this changed my pattern for where my life took me up to this point.
I'm not a Brittany Spears fan and I think she is cheesy, but I think the words to this song describes best what I was going through at this time of my life:
I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman
I used to thinkI had the answers to everything
Mm but now I know
That life doesn't always go my way.
YeahFeels like I'm caught in the middle
That's when I realize
I'm not a girl
Not yet a woman
All I need is time
A moment that is mine
While I'm in between
I'm not a girl
Not yet a woman
