Happy Dance

In the past month or so, my oldest (only ten) started getting these big white pimples. (k a little gross : not the mushy liquid kind, but the bumpy kind that you know its a pimple, and you can see the white, but there is no point popping it cus nothings gonna come out).

i had pretty bad zits when i was a kid/teen, not to the point I was using pronexin, but bad enough that even at 30, nearly 31, I get a bit embarressed for people to see my school pictures from back then!

I got Parker some face wash and some acne face wipe thingy's and his face cleared right up. I read onlien that kids,a s they head towards puberty and go through puperty, they have swings in their hormones and it makes their face break out and other crap too, so this could be the cause of his outbreak.

I just hope that any more outbreaks will be as easy to clear up as this one was!

I'm having a tough time tonight validating my reasons for being online. Before I would have said immediately that it was the interactions with the people I meet online, but lately, its all too much stress and drama.

I hopped in the tub tonight for a nice bath, and as usually, I took my iPod with me. I logged into twitter - I like to catch up on my tweepel friends when I am in the bath, it's when I have TIME to do so- and was shocked by the hate coming out of there!

A few months back I complained that twitter was useless during any prime time show becuase all the fans were there, posting about the show, to me this holds little interest becuase I watch very few shows. When I posted that, I got emails and tweets and DM's that were VERY rude about my attitude and how I needed to shut up and accept that people watch TV and will tweet about it.

I knocked a few people of my twitter that night, and blocked a few addresses in my email, and decided that in the future, I should keep my mouth shut.

Tonight I read tweets from someone I interact with online nearly every day, on twitter and her blog. She and a handful of other people were bitching that if they *dare* say they hate glee, that the glee haters will rain vengeance down on them. They then went on to make fun of the show and the type of people who watch it.

What really bothered me, is one of the girls who was vocal about her Glee hate, was one of the ones who basically told me to put on my big girl panties and deal with it when I said I was annoyed at ppl watching their TV shows months before.

Hypocrisy much?

I just don't see how twitter is worth my time anymore. And I am fast thinking the same about facebook. The stress from those two sites, OYE, I don't need to worry about age spot removal creams yet, but I'm gonna need wrinkle removers soon from all the frowning that the internet is giving me.

I came online four years ago to be entertained, and not, its more of a hassle to try and interact with people.

I feel very unwanted, I feel very..blah.

Is any of this really worth my time?

And can a person continue to blog in little doses like I do without the online interaction that goes with it?

We spent some time researching netbooks this winter, and ended up buying one for the boys for Christmas.

It's come in handy a few times now, becuase one of the game son FaceBook that I play has specials occasionally where I end up playing it on both my laptop and the boys net book. I've told Micah that I could totally use 100 more netbooks when I'm playing that game!

It's kind of addicting, yet its super boring, and yet...I cannot stop playing it!

I stopped playing the game back in August after deciding it was taking up way too much of my time, but in February the game started putting out feed posts and I kept seeing the feed posts ion my friend feed and ended up clicking on it and the rest is history. Im back to spending hours and hours a day playing this game and am neglecting house work and other things that i feel that I could be doing htat would be a better use of my time.

I want to play, but at a more manageable pace. I want to play but I don't want to spend hours a day on it. I sometimes feel that I should quit becuase i cant seem to find that in between space where I ma spending time on the game but not too much time!

Ho Hum Day

I was on gChat today talking with a friend about how "Meh" I've been lately. After discussing things with my friend, I've come to the conclusion that my Meh might be caused by my lack of ANYTHING to do.

Logan is in school now, not five days a week, but enough to kill me with boredneess. (....is too a word). So, after chatting on Gmail, I spent some time thinking about what kind of job I wanted. I was interested in working in the postal system, good pay, good benefits, and, if I was working in sorting the mail or whatever, the NOT delivering the mail job part, it would be an easy job. jobs in administration are pretty simple, right?

I mean, I spend most of my day online typing at a computer anyway, so an administrative job would be super similar except I would get paid.

Buuuut.I checked today, no openings at our Post Office, administrative or otherwise. I left an application anyway, they keep them on file, so who knows.

Check this out

THIS. Is a Texas mickey.

(the very large bottle. they come in all sorts of alcohol varieties)

Now. Some people might think that this is a cool thing because of the alcohol, but for me, because I do not drink, why it's cool for me is that when I was growing up, my parents had a Texas mickey, and they kept it in their bedroom, and every night they put their change from the day into the jar.

All this is leading up to the fact that *I* am getting my very own Texas Mickey VERY soon! It's already empty of alcohol, and soon it will be full of change!

And!!! More change that what it costs to buy some anti wrinkle eye cream, or some snacks at the store, but ..seriously. When the jar is full, if we only fill it with silver and gold coins, (as opposed to pennies) it will hold enough for us to take a trip to Disney!!!

I'm actually buying two Texas Mickey's, one for the silver and one for the pennies!


OK. Shhh. I'm supposed to be watching a movie right now (The chipmunks Squeakquel) but the dude who plays Dave was the same voice actor who played Underdog. So every time I hear Dave talk I'm looking around for that stupid SuperDog!

And the chipmunks are staying with some dude named Toby who is a complete and total retard, playing X box all day long, not feeding them, and I doubt he will make sure they bathe either.

Men need women to keep them on their toes. If no chick is there to ensure they eat, and bathe and sleep when it is dark out, well, med would pretty much FAIL.

The best vitamins for men is a woman.


However. Some women, like some vitamins, have directions that need to be followed. SO :

Men, you may think you have a command of the English language, but when it comes to communicating with women, you may be surprised. Here is our dictionary of Womanese. Master these terms and you'll find your relationship with women greatly improved.
The Real Definition of Words When Used By Women
JOKES - Differences Between Men and Woman

1. Fine - I am right. This argument is over. You need to shut up.

2. That's Okay - One of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. "That's okay" means she wants to think hard and long before deciding when and how you'll pay for your mistake.

3. Nothing - The calm before the storm. This means "Something" and you better be on your toes. Note: Arguments that start with "Nothing" usually end with "Fine" (See #1).

4. Five Minutes - If getting dressed, this means half an hour. (Don't be mad about this. It's the same definition for you when it's your turn to do some chores around the house.)

5. Thanks - A woman is thanking you. Do not question this or faint. Just say, "You're welcome," and let it go.

6. Loud Sigh - Not actually a word but rather a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. It means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is standing here wasting her time arguing with you about "Nothing." (See #3)

7. Go Ahead - This is a dare, not permission. (Don't Do It!)

8. Don't worry about it, I got it - The second most dangerous statement a woman can make. It means that a woman has asked a man several times to do something and is now doing it herself. (This will result in you asking at a later date, "What's wrong?" For the woman's response, see #3.)

Clash Of The Titans

Yesterday my inlaws called and asked if they could take the boys over night so Hubs and I had to plan an impromptu date night. We decided to take in the 10:20 showing of Clash of the Titans (in 3D).

It was good. Yes. It was. BUT, truth be told, tehre was no reason for it to be in 3D other then as a money grab. I feel that it would have been just as good as a 2D movie, and , I absolutely hate the stupid glasses that you have to wear!

Another thing? Why do they all wear those melded body plates that mimic sweet firm abs? 'Cus seriously? Watching that shit makes me want to ignore any and all possible diet pill side effects and start doing sit-ups by the thousand.

Also also? had I seen this movie while pregnant with one of my boys, you can bet your ass I would have named the child Perseus. OMG I love it. it just rolls off the tongue!....That and Andromeda...but only had I had a girl child!!

Yo. Help a girl out

So. I'm going to be making an appointment with my GP to get a referral to a dermatologist, but in the mean time, cna you give me a good idea for what thebest day creams are? I see commercials all the time, ALL, the time about creams to wear at night (on the face) and have found one I simply LOVE, but it has no sun screen in it,and I really want to get one with sun protection.

However, it cannot be greasy. At all.

Like, not even the tiniest bit, becuase I break out in zits like a twelve year old getting ready for school pictures. Then, cus my skin is so freaking DRY, when the zits go away i have around the area where it was, a big patch of flaky dry skin, and its just like a sunburn peeling. it's so horrible.

Again, i am going to see a dermatologist, but it takes while to get, first the appointment with the GP, then to get into see the dermatologist will be a wait and a half, I am sure, so i want to see what you all are using and see if it is something that might possibly work for me.

And people? ANY suggestions of proper skin care routines are very very much appreciated. Until this past year, year and a half, I have never had any problems whatsoever with my skin, a few zits but nothing like what I am dealing with now.

LOLz On the Highway

Do you know what amuses me? Like seriously amuses me? So mush so, in fact, that I cannot stop myself from pointing and laughing out loud when I see it?

A tow truck towing a tow truck.

Go ahead. Try and tell me you don't also find that highly amusing. but understand right now, that in my head, I am thinking "What a liar!", becuase there is NOTHING funnier, in relation to tow trucks, than a tow truck towing a tow truck.

Side note, typing tow over and over and over again starts making you think its not a real word.


One time I saw a bus being towed by a tow truck. that was kind of funny too, not as funny as a tow truck towing a tow truck, OR the time we saw a city bus being pulled over by the police, but it was still amusing. Would have been funnier had the passengers been still inside the bus.

I've never seen a motor bike towed. I assume that's becuase they would have to, like, load it up int he back of a truck or trailer or soemthing, that they couldn't actually tow it cus it would topple over.

Annnnd. I've never seen a motor home being towed, though I have heard of towing companies, like good sam motorhome towing, that are specifically FOR towing motor homes, but I have seen a motor home towing a boat, AND a car, at the same time.

I wonder how bad their gas mileage is when they do that?

Have you ever seen a tow truck towing a tow truck, or have you seen soemthing even funnier? And remember, if you try to tell me that a tow truck towing a tow truck isn't funny, you are a liar!
