Happy Friday after Christmas.

So I'm thinking this Friday wasn't going to be that great,especially when my alarm went off at 7:10 this morning.  Yes, I had to work.  I snoozed twice and then got up and got in the shower.  Off I go to work and I realize that I'm out of gas.  There were two gas stations between where I live and work on the way that I went this morning.  I stopped at the lesser of the two at the Tom Thumb (Randalls or Safeway for you elsewhere) and figured with my 10 cent "reward card" discount it was reasonable.  Low and behold  I got 70 cents off a gallon of gas and paid $1.19 for premium.  I thought it was my lucky day.  I filled up my German engineered car for $16.37.  I think that is a record.  

Well, that's not all.  I was running out of time when I got close to work and didn't have time to go to Starbucks to use my gift card so I ran thru the drive-thru at McDonalds and they were giving away free coffee.  FREE. 

I'm waiting for Aaron Eckhart or Viggo Mortensen to knock on my door.

Random thoughts from an insomniac...

Why is it when you are awake and want to love the cats they won't get anywhere near you, but when you want to sleep they decide they need attention or worse lay on top of you?

I watched The Princess Bride & Legal Eagles tonight.  The latter out of complete boredom.  

I hid my husbands Christmas Present and told him he could have it as soon as he found it.  He can't find it.  HEHEHE!!

Its freezing outside - literally.  

I wonder if Dirty Jobs is on.....

I don't even get paid for my ads....

Great new blog I discovered or rather was introduced to through someone else's shameless self promotion.  You know no one will toot your horn like well, you.  So check it out, it looks to be great fun if you are girly and like girly stuff.  Its entitled Green Beauty Queen and her company is Brown Bag Botanicals.  You know if you've read my blog I'm a huge fan of Lush.  Well this just might be better.  OMG, yes I said it.  Lush if you're reading this a gift card should be in order  to keep me interested.  (Do you think that will work?)

Mike Rowe Played with my hair.

I went to sleep watching Mike Rowe on Dirty Jobs and I ended up having the most interesting of dreams.  I had a hair appointment this morning.  The dream/job:  dyeing my hair!  Is that not the most awesome of all dreams, having Mike Rowe washing your hair - girls stop for a second and close your eyes and hear his voice and then imagine him running his fingers through your hair.  

You are excited now aren't you. 

Now imagine having that dream all-night-long.  Now you're jealous right.  Well, next time you have an appointment at the salon, watch Dirty Jobs the night before and you too could be this cheerful in the morning.

Caption Please:

Yes, I realize I need to wipe off the table, but as I was cleaning off the table I came back to the dining room and found this.....

I can't seem to come up with a good caption.  I mean was the cat looking for left over pizza or telling us "No More, you are on a diet!"  Or does he just have a box fetish?

Where do I start?

I'm having trouble expressing myself lately.  Things I think are smart and funny come out dumb and flat.  I think I need a break - from what I'm not sure - but a break.  I need to completely stop and get organized and back where I want to be.  Its driving me insane! Insane I say.  Things that were suppose to be done have not been done - some are completely my fault and some are not.  As much as I would like to blame this whole mess on someone else I could always get off my butt and do it myself.  I just know that I don't have enough time to block off at once to deal with it and I all of a sudden develop ADD when I try to clean.  I hate it.  I start in one room and then go to another to put something up and I do a few things in that room and move to the next, then the next instead of every accomplishing a particular task.  

I just want to have the worry that clouds my mind on a daily basis to blow out the window so that my vision is clear again.  I want to be funny, I want to worry less, I want more experiences than I want more things.  I just have to get there.  

Although I have been purging stuff from my home and my life, I haven't really begun to skim the surface of what needs to be done.  Somewhere somehow I need to chart my path and then start walking.  Some of its lack of motivation, probably due to depression.  I rarely find myself at the bottom of the bipolar spectrum, but I have hit it big time.  I am soooo much more fun manic.  Truly I am.  I want to help my friends too.  I know I'm not the only one having issues, but I feel that I have to figure out my own before I can get to the next step so now I've found I'm not as good a friend as I usually am.  

It may take me a little while to get back to where I need to be.  Maybe over the holidays my spirit will lift.  What I really need is to stomp my foot like a two year old and say my - time that is, and just take it for myself.  But the questions is will I do it?

Can you say Greedy__________....

I'm pissed off that the people (this includes politicians too!) can't get their heads out of their butts long enough to realize we have a giant problem. We are in an economic crisis and still we can't get what really needs to be done so that the US can get out of it. Here are some of the things that are pissing me off:
  1. The auto worker's unions refusing to take a pay cut. HELLO!!!!! Are you big giant idiots. I hope that the government doesn't bail your companies out and then you won't have a job and hopefully you will starve to death, because you were completely set on screwing the rest of America because of your greed.
  2. I think the fact that we are planning to spend WAY too much money on inauguration parties when America is going broke is WRONG! Truman didn't go crazy in the depression, why should we do it now. Its common sense guys.
  3. Health care - don't get me started on health care.  I can't afford the health care I have, which doesn't cover enough.  And I don't think socialized medicine is the answer either because waiting 6 months for an MRI is just ridiculous.  There has to be a happy medium.   Maybe routine exams, vaccines and emergent care under one umbrella.  While major medical is an additional something.  Heck, I don't know the answer, but something has to be better than the current system
  4. Oh and one other complaint.  WHY cancel quality shows on television for reality crap that sucks.  ABC you cancelled my favorite show - Eli Stone.  What's left Dancing with the Has-Beens.  Even if I accidentally cross that show on the way to something else I throw up just a little in my mouth, and as "uplifting" as Extreme Home Makeover is I can't stand to watch it anymore.  EVER.  Give it a rest please, besides all the house keep getting foreclosed on.

Rant over for the time being.  Enjoy your weekend.

I'm not bored, I'm just boring....

I have nothing interesting to say.  NOTHING.  So lets just make a list of stuff that's going on or I don't know questions that should be answered.  Chime in whenever something catches your fancy...
  • My hair needs WAY more than just a deep condition.  Its so dry I need to soak it overnight in oil.
  • Its cold here - it didn't get above freezing until mid-afternoon.  This is Texas.  I've sunbathed on Christmas.  Is not suppose to get this cold this early.
  • My cats have worse sibling rivalry than my kids after being stuck inside due to the weather.
  • My husband is still strange - this may never change, but I hope every day.  His latest "song"  is My Afro is so Large.  See, I told you he was strange
  • I really could use some chocolate right now.
  • Laundry seems to multiply when I'm not looking and I spent way too much at Sam's Club today.  Why?  I'm really really mad at Target.  So they can't have any of my money right now.
  • Drama - its everywhere.
Well, its time to deal with the next load of clothes and I don't know if I could come up with another bullet point if I tried.

Does Democrat = Creative?

Do you have to be a democrat to be truly creative?  I mean most actors/writers/celebrities are democrats aren't they?  Yes there is that guy, you know, the one who's now governor.  And that other ex-governor, but he used to be a wrestler and that's not creative is it?  

I am convinced I am a liberal republican or a conservative democrat.  Does that make me an Independent or what?  If I'm a liberal republican should I just give up all  my creative dreams, or do I just choose the conservative democrat so I can be famous?  Yes, I know I will only be famous in my own mind, but that's OK with me.

Yes the election is over, but the new government is being formed.  I say new as if its really going to change, but we know it really won't.  There are so many current politicians or former cabinet members from current/previous administrations that there really is no NEW its only RE-organized.  But that's not what this post is about.  Do you know any creative Republicans?  Seriously, creative types are generally democrats.  I don't know many conservative celebrities.  
So I guess my question is...  Does Republican = boring? 

Dear Santa...

Christmas is not coming for the adults in my family this year.  Its been a rough last few months for everyone.  The economy sucks BIG time and well, the budget just doesn't call for extravagance.  But just in-case there is a Santa here is a few things I need:

  • Some new kitchen towels - mine are looking well worn.
  • I really need a hair cut and color if you are so inclined.
  • A new vacuum as I can only use the hose on the one I have now (and while its great for the baseboards it sucks when I get to the rugs).
  • I'd love something that makes me look 10 lbs thinner.
  • Adobe Photoshop with Lightroom for my Mac

Not much OK, the Photoshop & Lightroom maybe be a little over the top, but it can't hurt to ask right?  Oh and thanks in advance.

Rumblings, Bumblings

I am completely and utterly stumped.  Me, Dijea, the one who could talk for hours has nothing to say.  I have writer's block or something.  I would like to say something witty about my interesting day, but nothing interesting happened.  I did admit that it had been a while since I shaved my legs.  I will be taking care of that tonight.  Excited?  Probably not.  I also worked out.  YEA!  Its been a while since I did that.  Probably since The Husband had surgery.  He goes back to work on Monday.  THANK THE LORD!  Anyway, this kind of hot guy took his shirt off for a second that was nice, but so did the 80+ year old that was walking with a cane so his wife could dry him off before they went home. 


That totally ruined the hot guy shirtless.   My husband baked a cake and cooked dinner today.  I feel like a failure at the mom thing.  Maybe I can do better when he goes back to work.  Maybe.  I feel kind of like a failure at a lot of things.  Although I did inform Mrs. Unstable about the whole Avery suspension before she heard it elsewhere - that is kind of a coup.  

I am looking forward to doing something exciting.  If anyone has any ideas, please do not hesitate to let me know.  Obviously I am having a creative crisis if you've read any of this post. I'm off to see if I have enough energy to do the next job in Mob Wars.
