I know this is not my normal year end post but I wrote it up and it was angry and sad. Frankly I just didn’t want to post it. I have been in a bad mood most of this year. I want 2010 to be different. I want to use the flipping of this decade to let it all go and start out 2010 with a new light. I am grateful for 2009 I have learned a lot and lots of it is that I am unhappy so unhappy I don’t even want to be around myself. So I am going to put unhappy me to rest in so doing I am going to try this.

There is a lot I am looking forward to in 2010

My Poppy is coming. My dear friend is having a baby. A much loved little girl who is being called “Poppy” for now. Poppy’s Mom and Dad are keeping her name under wraps till she gets here. I get to be Aunt Fern. I can’t wait to share the joy of her birth with you in February. FYI: Poppy’s Momma is the one who named me Fern. It will be on the quiz later so study up.

I am also planning another trip to Mobile for Mardi gras in February. About the same time Poppy is due to get here.

I am going to buy a new cell phone. I know that is some News and totally worth you taking time to see what my plans for 2010 are.

I am going to be 40 in 2010. There are a lot of things I want for that. I want to be as excited about 40 as I was about 30. I rocked 30. I blew it out of the water. So look out 40 here I come. I am not sure what those plans are yet but I am planning so save the date.

I am sure there are many more great things to come. 2010 let the fun begin

What do you do to relax? I mean to really and truely relax? It has been such a long time and I was wondering what you all do to just let it go. Today I took a hot bath with lavender beads and that helped some but well I need to guideance here out there.

I asked for help

I did it I asked people to help me with some of the stuff for the party. There. Libby is baking some of the cookies. Pam is bringing a dish Now if I could get someone to help me clean the house I would be ok.

did you forget

Did you forget to RSVP? I mean come on you know you want to be here for my party. And I promise if you show up I wont make you take out the trash. What is it about sending out a freakin RSVP that people don't get. I know Emily Post just rolled over in her grave. I know the people that live in other States are not coming. I get that I love them and want them to know I am thinking of them but YOU live on the other side of town. I sent out 40 invites 10 have responeded. But if you still want to come and bring a friend do. Unless it is your nasty gf/bf I am only polite because of you. Other wise I would hit em with a bat.

So come to my party and I swear I wont hit her with a bat I will be all kinds of sweet.

In an attempt

In a major attempt on my part to relax and let go I am letting someone else make and bring something to the Christmas Party. I asked Pam for the recipe and she said I'll make it for you. So I said OK. It wasn't easy. And it stresses me out to no end. But it is done.

I also don't like to ask guest to bring things because Hell you are guest. I am the host. Plus I love love love to cook.

And then of course you have those people who say they will bring something and then they just freaking don't like the time I made home made lasagna and had people over. Everyone was supposed to bring something. The person that was supposed to bring the Salad showed up and said they just decided not to bring it. Which for someone like me just pushes me over the edge and makes me bat shit crazy.

But I am letting go. DEEP BREATHS.

Dad lets me drive on the driveway

The last year has been hard on the family. My Dad's health has gone down hill and the man who used to be vibrate and active now can barely walk to the mail box. My mother is saying that the Doctors say it looks like Congestive Heart Failure now. It seems we have been getting one diagnosis after another and each new one is in addition to something he already has. The symptoms for one are the same as the symptoms of another and the list just grows.

I have asked for a list of what he has but my Mother can't ever seem to remember to give it to me. So far what I can remember are ITP, CHF, AND low Blood Pressure there are several more and I am tired.

I don't know if anyone fully understands how it breaks my heart that my Dad might not live to walk me down the aisle. The man who taught me how to drive and how to ride a bike and made piggy's in a blanket on Sundays when Mom was out of the house and broke the rules.

Did I tell you all that this year at my Annual Christmas Party we are collecting funds for 1-800-Suicide. Earlier this year a friend of myself and Sanford my co-host, took his own life after a life long battle with depression. The Demons finally won. Sanford and Mike were BFF.

It has been hard on the group. But Sanford was talking to me about our Annual Christmas Party and he suggested some kind of suicide prevention network. Then he wanted to back down. I had to really encourage him that we needed to go through with this. We always invite large numbers of people and Mike's Mother is always there. He didn't want to do this and her be there and break her heart or hurt her feelings.

I just kept encouraging him to call and ask her. He did not want this to be a sad time for her. Then he made the call. I know this was not easy for him. But he asked. "Would you be OK with it if we collected money for 1-800-Suicide this year? " She told him it would be fine and if we wanted to collect the money in Mike's memory that would be a great idea.

I think Sanford was in shock for many reasons.

Do I think Mike's Mom will get trough the party with out tears. No. But I do hope that the money we get can save the next Mike.

I have a bigger question and maybe you can help. Do I put out a picture of Mike? We are collecting the money in his memory. What do you guys think.

I am still not feeling all that great. But I am feeling better. I am not as lonely as and feeling as desperate as I was.

I am having trouble at work and I am the only one who thinks so. Not going to deep. Not sure who reads this.

On a positive note I am gearing up for the Annual Christmas Party that me and a friend throw each year. Bought a warming tray at a yard sale this weekend. I think I have more trays and bowls than I know what do with. I am trying to come up with some new and different food to serve. Each year we have a few favorites and party standards

Veggie Tray
Home made Humus Plain and Roasted Red Pepper
Bacon Winnie Wraps( BIG HIT)
Cheese Tray

Lots of sweets and home made cookies
Chips, dips

I need something new and different Any ideas

Thank you to my anonymous readers for their advise. You are very right this is so the time to tread lightly and not go head long into a relationship. But come on its been 7 years I mean really. Not that my ex was all that awsome that is why he is my ex and married to someone else that is not me. YEPPIE!!

Now I need advice on how to find a job in this market.

Been invited out to the country this weekend with a Girl Friend. She is going to put me to work. That will help a ton I think.

Monday, November 09, 2009

You Think?

I had someone else today point out that my post on facebook seem a little tense here lately. Oh because I was beginning to think that I was the only one that thought I was a little disgruntled. The first person that pointed it out ticked me off.

My massage for Friday got canceled because my masseur had a death in his family. The only other day & time they opened did not work with my schedule.

But on the bright side the Christmas Party is Saturday December 12. Now if I can get the house clean and not have to shove everything into garage or under a bed. We will be just fine. Right as rain.

Not so hot

So things have not been good. And I have not wanted to Blog because I am sick of the only thing I write about is how unhappy I am. You know how you reach a point that all someone does is talk about how unhappy they are and you get sick of hearing it. So you no longer wanted to hang with that person. I am that person or at least that is how feel.

I am lonely. I miss being in a relationship I miss having someone to share my life with. Someone to sit at the dinner table with and share my day with, someone I can share the last parts of a day with before we fall asleep.

I am tired of being unhappy in so many parts of my life. I am tired of sucking the life out of those around me complaining about the same things over and over again.

I am trying to figure out ways to improve before I destroy myself. But sometimes you have to destroy something to build it back up.

I don't know.

Saturday, November 07, 2009


Have you ever been so lonely for the touch of a man that you wanted to cry? I mean the touch of a man that was madly and passionately in love with you. Or hell just for the touch of one that is willing to lie to you about it for night.

Just shot me.

Sunday, November 01, 2009

Just bend over

I seems that I am doing a lot of that here lately as far as work goes. I am tired. I need to find a new job but guess what there is not one out there. I have been told by several State Monitoring officials to get out before I go down on this ever sinking ship.

I know I could ask my friends and use them as references and keep looking for a new job. But I am thinking really hard about going back to school. Getting my degree. I am not sure I could get a loan but I guess first I have to try. I need to decide what I want to be when I grew up. This has been a hard time for me and I am worried about losing my job before I find another one. POSITIVE VIBES POSITIVE VIBES.

The stuff movies are made of

Well here we sit again I have been thinking. To get the H1N1 shot or not. I have never gotten a flu shot EVER. When they talk about how everyone should get this shot and the fast rate it was developed I stop and think of that Will Smith movie ( it was a book first)I am Legend you know where they give people a shot to cure cancer and everyone turns into vampire like flesh eating monsters. And I say hell I don't want to be a a vampire like flesh eating monster. I also stop and think of the whole Katrina debacle where everyone and there brother said GET THE HELL OUT as the storm of the Century bared down on them.

So to me I feel caught in this great debate do I get this shot and later find out it is the pox blankets , the agent orange, the asbestos of this time or do I not get it and later as I am on my death bed sick as a damn dog wish I had gone and gotten the shot.

I don't know but I have been thinking..

I was crazy once

... and frankly I still am. Some days I am just crazier than others. I have had quite I bit of stuff rolling around in my head. Dad being sick, working making me crazy, and I have a list a mile long. Which I could stay at the office and work on but my boss will just give me work to do if I stay at my desk.

My house is a hot mess, this lends to my insanity. Fact is I have become comfortable in the insanity which makes me even crazier. Have you ever felt that way? Where you come to realize the new "normal" is WHACKED. I wonder if it is good or bad or a little of both and I am trying to figure out which ones I can live with and which ones need to go.

Not that I have ever been any shade of normal. I love to fly my freak flag.

The Drama

The Dramatic fit of yesterday where I thew myself on the floor and whaled about the ups and the downs and the oh whoa is me thing. Yes that thing. Well I am done now.
I drank the kool aid. Though it was the one with PGA but sometimes its is about the same thing. I drank that crap straight once and it took me about 6 years to think about drinking Jim Beam again.

Seriously sleep and clean gutters helped a ton. Crisp fall air. Ah hello new day.

Monday, September 28, 2009

I am still here?

Maybe I am not really here and I have left my body and traveled somewhere else. Maybe if I say it I will feel better but then I wont feel better because it could hurt someone and that is not worth it.

I am eatten alive with feelings of envy and joy, self-sufficient and self-destruction, self-loathing and self-love, letting go or taking control, and then there's that other thing to keep on faking it or let the world know and everyone I know just how utterly bat shit crazy I feel.

When my roommate woke me up coming in the house this morning as I was passed out on the sofa. I was dreaming I was dancing with this extremely handsome Marine in this country bar with saw dust in on the floor. He was dressed in his fatigues Like I would be in a country bar. A mostly empty one. But we danced and we kissed and we talked . It was almost as if we were the only ones there which maybe why the bar was mostly empty. LOL. When I woke up I was depressed it was just a dream and that the romance and the dance had ended. I headed to bed and then when I woke up for the day I was depressed that I was depressed for feeling lonely at having blah blah blah.

But hey I did get to dance.

So what

So what would you all like to hear about? I am out of ideas.

Sunday, September 06, 2009


I did it I turned 39 on Friday. It is not like I had a choice in the matter. I was rather looking forward to it and all the things to come in the next few days.
Lunch with my boss and a friend then I had dinner with my folks and sister Friday night. Next it was off for drinks with Friends at this fabulous place in Nashville South Street with this great "tree house" area. I brought in 39 with a bang and it subsequently kicked my ass. I drank way to much and well I lived.
Did I tell you that my sometimes not so awesome roommate became a totally awesome roommate when he gave me a new Garbage Despoil how freakin cool is he. He might piss me off now and again but that is a totally awesome and unexpected gift.
Saturday was the day I spent laying on the sofa wondering why I felt so old and hoping to get better to make it to David's where I had been summoned for a chili party before we went to the Vandy Game. When I arrived after being called to hurry up going WTF. My buddy Ricky and his husband had come in to surprise me for my birthday and head to the game with me. I have some freakin awesome friends.

But that folks is not the end of YAY The Goddess is 39. My very good and Dear Friend Stephanie is going with me to a Cabin at Rock Island State Park here in Tennessee. I can't wait to leave. Thursday for 4 days away from it all.

Finding a rhythm

I was at the gym again this morning around 5:30. The night before I got together my gym cloths, shower and make-up stuff, packed up breakfast and lunch, and got together and ironed my cloths for work. I did not think about a snack and I have been about to gnaw my fingers off for the last hour. I am trying to stop with chips. I LOVE CHIPS!!

This morning I got myself up and out the door then I realized I didn't have my top. It was hanging on the door in my bedroom. Oops can't make do without that so I had to turn around and go back home. I am going to need to spend the next few weeks getting down a what works and what doesn't thing. Deciding what I will wear the night before. Going to bed earlier than I have been and getting everything in order the night before. Which means if I have something that either does not fit or is stained and I forgot I am going to be royally screwed because I am at the gym.

It does not help matters that there is a McDonald's across the street and the grease is calling my name to reapply it self to my thighs.

I will tell you that I enjoyed every burger, milkshake , potato chip that got me to this point.

I am also trying to get down a good rhythm for doing weights and cardio of course it can't really be a rhythm I have to keep my body guessing but give it time to rest also.

So the plan is this:

Get Organized and get stuff together to grab and run out the door
Maintain slight amount of A.D.D. in workout

The $25 Massage

I have been promising you guys the little story about the $25 massage I have been getting the ones that I have enjoyed so much that I have been going every other week. I will tell you now seek one out in your community. I am going to one of the local technical schools. And if you are all wha I need a massage but don't have the $65 plus it cost in my area. Then get the to one of these schools. Find one in your area. Sure they are students but they are about to graduate.

When I went the first time I had to fill out this little info sheet and after each massage they ask you to critique your masseur. But get yee to the technical school for a good but cheap massage.

The Before

Here it is The Before of me taken on Monday July 27th this is what I look like as I began my get in shape journey. I was frankly taken aback by it. I knew I had gained a great deal of weight and was pudgy. But Wholly Shit. I stood up straight and did not poke out my stomach but I did not suck it in either. I am not brave enough to post it on face book till I have an after but here I am.

This is not who I want to be. I was up and at the gym at 5:30 this morning. I have to start somewhere and I hope that this picture will be the motivation I need.

I'm a nut

So when I was little my GrandMamie taught me this song we said "stare at me" instead of "step on me". I sang this today to my high school friends Kim's little girl this of course was after I was called a nut by America's Next Top Mommy. So this is for you. This little girl is so cute. I could just eat her up.

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Join a Gym

So if you have been thinking hey I want to join a gym but they are so expensive with fees and long term contracts. I was just offered a month to month for 14.95 at Urban Active and since I am gaining weight at an alarming rate I figured I would go for it. Then if I don't go I can back out. SO that's it right now I might join a gym cool huh. Yay I know not really but hey.

Thursday, July 16, 2009


In the last few weeks I have been tired. And I am talking I can't get out of bed in the morning when the alarm clock goes off. Then I need a nap in the middle of the day and by 10pm I am fighting to stay awake. My energy has been non existent. So for all I know I could be dying. I could also be old or just plain not eating enough veggies. I am working on this.

I am waiting now to hear back from from an insurance company about health insurance. The cost right now is about $60 a week. It will mean not so much fun since I paid off my car. Not as much free will nilly spending. It does mean meds for my migraines and annual physicals. I don't know if I will know what to with health insurance. I can tell you it is over all much easier when it comes out of your check before your employer hands it to you. It seems like much more when you get the check and then they take it.

I know I promissed you all this whole story on my $25 massage at the school well I am having another one today. Does that tell you anything? I swear I will tell you guys all about it. I know its what you are waiting to hear.

I am in search of a buddy, a pal , a friend to go with me on this cruise planned for Oct. 31 - Nov 5th. It was supposed to be a Paranormal cruise and that all fell through. Everyone else has pulled out and I still want to go. Who will go with me? I am trying to find someone to share my cabin space with. Any ideas?
I have really been looking forward to going and this was set up in my mind as my big get-a-way. The long planned retreat to relaxation land. Sitting by the pool drinking Cosmos , soaking up sun and waiting for the Deck Boy to make me feel like he never flirts with any other women the way he is flirting with me. To be away from my cell phone and to leave my Internet behind. Schedule a massage and then pad back to a deck chair where I can fall asleep amid the sounds of the Gulf. Stroll around Cozumel and buy trinkets I just don't need. Check out the midnight seafood buffet then enjoy a glass of wine while the moon lays across the water and nice talk about everything and nothing. And plain old girl time

Thursday, July 09, 2009

I'm here

honestly I am. I have a massage scheduled this afternoon at one of the schools. It is supposed to cost only $25 and from all I hear it is pretty good. Basically you go and a student gives you the massage. They learn and your stress is gone. Of course I have to drive home after that which seems to defeat the purpose but I need this.

I also need to go to Sam's and shop for Pizza on the Grill Night , pick an outfit for the opening reception of a Creative Drawing & Painting Visual Varitete I have been invited to and find my camera. I have seen it since the break in in fact I had it with me for a while just need to look for it.

Tuesday, July 07, 2009


How was your day I hope it was well. Mine was long and I was not able to get anything done I indented to do. That would have required that I be in the office which I have not been for the last two days. I have a long list of things to do. I also have a big meeting anyone with tips on how to bitch slap TennCare into giving me what is needed for the person I am advocating for please let me know. I am also hiring lpns send them my way if you know of any.
I have a ton of laundry to do and that really entails me changing my sheets. That is my plan for good sleep tonight. Clean sheets. And a clean room somehow that always seems to make a huge difference in things being fresh. So once this is done I have a project to do. I know you will be waiting with bated breath to find out if I got my room clean.
I am also working on plans for Pizza on the Grill night for Saturday night with some friends you should come by. What pizza toppings do you like?
That is it for my day. I know I know how can one have such an exciting life and still have time to blog it is unreal to me to.

Still Awake

UGH I am still unable to sleep. I have now moved into hot lavender tea mode. I have not taken anything and I would really rather not seeing as how I have to be up at 4:30 and doing crap for work at 6am so it is not like I can take something now and be at work on time. And frankly it is not like I have a lot to tell you all.

I told you I blocked his number that is done. Did I tell you he was 22(heehee)
This is not what is keeping me up. I wish I knew what it is , it might be that the stress from last week has just moved into something else.

I need to get with my friends and see if they are still going to go on this cruise since it is no longer a paranormal cruise. I have got to get the hell out of dodge. I have not had anything more than a long weekend trip in years. My last actual trip was to Hawaii in 2005. Maybe the trip to Mardi Gras longer but I can't remember. It seemed short. And like It was forever ago. If none of the local girls still want to I think I have someone lined up to spend 5 nights at sea with me. It is a fellow blogger. If she decides not to go I might just have to plan a trip some where else but not sure of where I could go for the cost of the cruise. Any ideas? It must be more than a long weekend , at least 5 nights, and more than a 5 OR 6 hour drive. If it requires a plane trip that's cool too. But then I am still in this wait and see mood. My goal is to try and get some answers this week.

Ouice Cream

I didnt get any ouice cream yesterday. Home made ice cream was always one of the best parts of the 4th of July. I am going to head to the DQ down the road it wont be the same but it will have to do. I could bake cookies and then put my ice cream in between the hot cookies. Yummy and then of course I could buy bigger pants.

I worked third last night which is not my norm. I am usually sound asleep as most grave yard shifts start so when I went in to work after ten last night I was already for bed. I slept after getting off this morning for about 3 hours plus the one hour nap I got yesterday that is 4 hours of sleep in about 33 hours. I am a fucking bowl of sunshine Right now. I am also trying to stay awake for another 3 hours or so. If I go to sleep now I will wake up at Midnight and that sure wont do me any good. SO if you are lucky and I stay awake much longer there is no telling what I might say so now is your chance in the throws of sleep deprivation to ask me anything. What have you always wanted to know? Now is your chance to catch me with my guard down.

Down a knotch

My stress level has gone down just a tad. I stayed home today and slept. After having not slept for a few days I stayed home and napped on the sofa. I had to run to the office for a hot minute but then I was back home. And I slept napped most of the afternoon. Sleep does wonders to get rid of stress. At least my stress. So I am not as wiggy stressy as I was.

The guy I told to step up to the plate or get out of my life has made his choice. I am some what relived. We have been playing this game for years and I played along. I did enjoy the game. But I grew tried of it and he didn't want to admit it was a game. I told him if it wasn't a game then prove it. I knew how he would play it and I am glad it is over.

I have got a lot of figuring to do. The main ones have to with why I am so bat shit stressed why I feel so on edge and why I can't figure out what I need to turn it all around. It all came on rather suddenly. Not that I have been unstressed but something all at once went STRESS.

Quite possibly it was not all at once but the million tiny things that have been going on life, work, roommate, yard sale, bills, break-in, to gun or not to gun, and on and on it goes.

Someone give me some good news and if it is I just spent a few days in Paris. I am going to tell you to suck it.

Monday, June 29, 2009

loosing it

I feel as if I am loosing it. Going crazy spinning out of control. I told someone last night to either step up to the late or get the hell out of my life. And its not just that I am full of stress and I need a break. I don't want to eat huge amounts of ice cream or drink my self stupid because I just cant put my finger on what it is I need. But something is building inside of me and I feel it in my chest.

If I knew what I needed I would do it. You know a hot bath , candles , etc. I have got to get it together.

Sunday, June 28, 2009

I See you

I have a lot of back and forth emotions about you. But I guess you know that. I have been wondering for a while if you were alive or dead. I found you on FB so now I know you are alive. I am glad you're OK. I hope you are well and happy where your life is today. You should smile more I always loved your smile .I hope a lot of things for you. I wanted you to know that I do see you.

Thursday, June 25, 2009

About to freak

I have been extremely reluctant to tell the rest of the story about what has been going on in regards to my break-in. There has been a break in the case. What I am hoping as there has been a break in the case that I have made the right choice.

Half Way

So we are half-way through 2009 can you believe it? So I thought I would regale you with where I am on all the things I said I would do by the end of the year. Really it is more for my own benefit but I am dragging you along for the ride. This is your last chance to exit the ride before we continue

Six months ago I was in a blue funk and moving through a long depression and a friend had blogged on “100 things that bring me joy” 55. Fran’s fantastic attitude toward life. I have really made huge steps toward finding her again. I am doing much better than I was. YAY me.

The old car is paid off. I own it. I am not out of debt still have a lot to do but well I am getting there.

I am working one job in case you missed that post. I still have issues about work but can’t and wont go into that here. I have to make some choices still and the economy is not looking good but then this is the half way post.

The garage has been cleaned out and after this weekends yard sale I will be able to get my car in there. So I am knocking out my home to-do list one item at a time. Come on over and buy my junk. Ok it is not just my junk it is from the members of my paranormal group we are having a yard sale to fix up our web page / buy an inferred camera.

I have not gotten better at eating healthy, writing in my personal journal, recording my dreams and I don’t still don’t know how to insert links. I know I did promise that I would be able to do it by the end of the year but I still have 6 more months.

There is more but I am tired. I am doing really well for half way through the year. How are you doing on your goals?

What to keep

I spent a good part of the day cleaning out the garage. I throw out a lot of stuff. I tossed those ever lame teen angst poems I had written. My work book from modeling school and countless other odds and ends. I set aside a number of things for the yard sale. Made a stack of things to bring back into the house and make the ever keep, trash , sell decision on.
The thing I am not sure what to do with are the old cards, letters, and notes from an old boyfriend. I have them all nicely tucked in a box. Do I keep them or let them go? Do I keep the kerosene heater that I have not used in 9 years? What about that medicine cabinet I got out of my grandmother's house that I always intended to use but can't find the right spot for?

What can I let go of? And the things that I can't what is my attachment to them?

Friday, June 19, 2009


Since the break in I have been full of FEAR.I am not scared to be alone in the house. I am afraid to leave the house. I am afraid that if I am not home the rest of what I have will be taken. I want to be here to protect what is mine. I have no choice but to work so I must leave my home vulnerable. It is almost as if someone has invaded the dark places in my mind where I don't let anyone go.

I believe in facing my fears head on thus the Sky diving before I am 40. And the leaving the house even though I am afraid too. I have other fears but hey these are all front and center today.

Clearing the air

The one where I give evidence

Hi thanks for stopping by. Don't think I have thanked you all lately for coming by my little spot on the World Wide Web. Drinks and snacks will be served in the lounge after the presentation. Sorry there will be no Rum if you remember it was stolen. I don't know if you all have caught on but I can be a wee bit bitter. GRRRR

I am still having to make major adjustments to having a roommate. Why I am having such a hard time I couldn't tell you. Well I could but .... I look bad in it. I know the shock and absolute horror. You look bad NO FREAKING WAY! But still. I am having major personal space issues. He talks to me first thing in the morning and not just "morning" he wants to pick up where we left off last night with more thinking than I am willing to do at 5 freakin 30 in the morning. Have I told you he talks to me during My TV shows not just during commercials , I know we should take him out in shoot him. So I am having to re-adapt. Or well I don't need evidence that can be used against me later.

So I am a month and a half into one job. I am not out every weekend. I do go out but well how do you find a date? I mean seriously. I am over these dating sites tips people. I have been out of the dating scene for a while. I am going out and doing things I enjoy. but hey where are single men in the 37-42 range? Anyone? Anyone?

They left the cheap vodka

Yesterday started out like well any other Thursday but when I arrived home and found the empty coffee can I keep my loose change in sitting on my bed I was like HUH? That's not right. The window in the kitchen door was on the kitchen floor I had been robbed. I called the police they said don't touch anything someone will be out. I called my roommate to say oh hey we have been robbed you may want to get home and see what's missing of yours. Called my sister who just said "Shut-up" TXT my buddy Anthony who said "I'll be by after work." And I sat and waited and waited talked to my neighbors to say hey be on the look out. It all and all is not so bad. They got maybe $150 in cash and it looks like a few cheap little earrings are missing. I will not be sure which ones until I put on the dress I wear the earrings with and then I'll be CRAP. My roomie lost some blank checks and they took my GD Mother Freakin RUM and my Mango Rum.Left the cheap Vodka and took my Rum.

The cops did come and they dusted for prints. Didn't get crap because well I am a lousy house keeper and well just so you know high gloss paint is your enemy when it comes to getting prints.

I am not so much afraid to be alone in the house as I am afraid to leave the house. I want to be here to keep my stuff safe. IT IS MY STUFF.

I am going to go ahead and bite the bullet and get a dog. I have been wanting a German Shepard for some time so once I get my car tuned up the next thing I buy will be a good dog.One that I can train to eat the next Mother Fucker that breaks into my house. That takes a lot of work and I have not done much research into Protection Training. I have to step it up a notch. I want to be totally and completely sure if I have a dog that has been protection trained I can handle him and the responsibility that comes with such a task. If not well I want a good obedience school. Well trained dog well trained owner Everyone is happy.

I should be

If my email in box is any indication I should be rich and have a hot man by now. The number of those send me $150.00 as a transaction/ shipping and handling fee and I can get you the money that has been bequest to you by my extremely rich client. I get two or three a day. Since I have not responded I get them writing me back. We have not heard from you and if you do not respond with the utmost urgency your bequest will have to go to the next person on the list. YA OK I'll get on that and get you my bank account info toot sweet.

Then of course there is the ever overflow of dating sites and groups. Meet Rich men , meet married men, meet women. So does the whole world think I am desperate? You would think with all that there would be men falling at my beautiful feet.

Did I forget to tell you about all the adds for jobs I mean I can be retrained and be a Lawyer, a Medical Transcriptions. My possibilities are endless. For a fee

So what I want to know is can I borrow $150 to get started then I can be all I should be.

What's New

I really can't say that I have anything new to report. I just didn't want you all to think I had fallen off the edge of the earth. So here its

My friend Carl moved in with me today. His six year relationship with his partner Abe has officially come to an end. I was in their Wedding. And yes I call it a wedding. He brought his Momma with him. Though she is in a box in the curio cabinet and I must say it is a nice box and I don't know that I would have been able to look at it and say "oh nice urn". The only real dead give away is her name and life dates on the top. So stop on in and say hello.

I also got a hair cut with bangs. I know hard to believe huh. I promised my facebook peeps a picture of it and as soon as I bully Carl into taking one I will post it here for you to see. My hair was in horrible shape because I had not had it cut in almost a year so I had to have a lot of damage cut out.

I got my passport Tuesday and I am now ready to see the world. That leaves my list of things to do before I am 40 a little smaller. I still need to knock off Sky diving and going back to college. I am working hard on paying off my debt. Who would like to come and jump out of a plane with me?

There might be a guy and then there might not be a guy. It's not that big a deal and I am not even sure it is not a game. Though I am enjoying it what ever it is. I don't want to get my hopes up to be let down and well like I said.

Did I tell you all I have been trying to find the rest of my Senior Class so I could put together a little 20 year reunion. Just in case they try and google their names or you know them I am looking for: Tim Collins; Chris Dixon; Brain Edwards; Justin Ely; Robbie Foster; Brian Greer; Scott Johnston; Shannon Watson; and Nev Wilkins the surviving 1989 Senior Class of Benton Hall High School. There are a few other folk out there I woiuld not mind touching base with but I'll get to them later.

That's all that's new I think. What's new with you?

Jon & Kate My Take

I have to admit to being an avid follower of Jon and Kate Plus 8. Those children are adorable. I have been thinking and wondering if I wanted to say something.

I know that the show is edited to show things in the light TLC wants to play things in. This is the way it has played for me.

Kate is a bitch. That is how she is edited. As a controlling, my way or the highway bitch. She demoralize her husband calling into question his manhood and his ability to parent over shoes. Shoes people. She goes on tantrums long rants over her husband not using a coupon at Home Depot. She yells , she screams, and she hits. If she were a man people would YELL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. She blows it off as being cute and a love pat. Well honey let some man love pat one of your girls that way. It is not cute it is not funny it is VIOLENCE. Stop means stop. If you can stop hitting your husband when he ask what lesson does that teach your children?
She loves her children there is no doubt about it. There is no doubt that you have to be well organized to keep a household with that many kids running. But you don't not have to make an attack on someones dignity to make a point.

Jon is a down beaten man who is plain and simple acting out. Everything he does is controlled by his wife. At the end of last season he clearly did not want to keep going he clearly wanted "Their Life" Back. And Kate clearly doesn't give a flying rats ass what Jon wants.

As much as I love the show. As cute as I think the kids are. They both need to stop and listen to each other. Respect how though someone may do something different it does not make it wrong. I hope nothing but the best for the family. I hope that Jon and Kate can learn to value and respect each other as people

If you are not from the South then you are missing out. Chick-Fil-A is AWSOME!!!

Thursday, May 14, 2009


I am so ready for Friday. There is something out there I can do Friday Night a Haunted Pub Crawl. But, I think I might be at the I don't want to around people point. The point where someone breathing makes you insane.
So I can go to the pub crawl and be around people. Which could go either way. OR I could pick up a 6pack or mix a drink and make plans to stop at the Taco Stand that is a little dirty but OUT OF THIS WORLD.

I have been debating back and forth about weather or not to talk about my Dad. How sick he has been the last 10 months. How weak he has been. The diagnoses keep changing so it is hard to know what to tell and what not tell. It might not be that the diagnoses keep changing it could be the Doctors are saying it looks like Elmoits. We need to run more test. Then my Mother will email me- your Dad has Elmoits he is going to turn in to a red Muppett. I am left going what? A muppett. Couldn't it be related to Kermitness or The Pigg foot which they have aready said he has they are all Muppett things. Mother says NO and sobs. And now well my Dad does not have Elmoits becasue the blood test came back. My mother is freaking out and trying to act like she is not freaking out but she is on the edge. And my Dad feels like shit.

The one where I over share

PSYCH I was only joking I am not going to over share, Today anyway. Next week is another story. There is a 6 day period in the next two weeks where I am the only one in the office and I am the one running the show. Not that I don't normally run the show there are just other people around to put out fires. I am hoping I don't get caught up in some huge Katerina type disaster and end up the one take the blame for the weather. But time will tell.

On top of all that next week is TWENTY YEARS since I graduated from high school. The plus there is that I have less grey hair than my ever charming baby sister. I was hoping to still be able to get into a dress I wore then but that aint going to happen. Given effort I might be able to push for say mid June. But 5 a.m. is just to early to get up and run.

Yesterday I turned in my application for a Passport. I am planning a trip to Mexico with my Paranormal group in October and as of July 1st you have to have a US Passport or Passport Card to get back into the US from Mexico , Canada or the Caribbean.

I did a post on what is Paranormal because someone ask and I was trying to be funny. I don't know that it came off that way. I was not trying to offend you. Honest.

One of my Girlfriends (is that right) are trying to plan a long weekend get-a-way in the mountains In September. Rent a cabin and then well we are working on the rest not sure if we are going to do a theme like writing or just go with the flow and what not. we are in the midst of the planning right now and how we are going to make this work. Will it be just girls or a who the ever wants to come.

On top of all that I have holes in the eves of my house and my air is out. But I got a raise. How is that for clean living.

Joe the Plumber Jesus Loves You But Everybody Else Thingks your an Ass Hole


Yep I am going after Joe the Plumber again. I really don't have to go after him. He is a vile hate filled dumb ass. Yes, I am judging him and so you know I know YEP THAT'S SIN.

Joe I am glad you are teaching HATE to your kids. After all that is what Jesus is all about is Hate.

PEOPLE like you make me ill. People like you are why I never step foot in Church. I want no part of your kind of God or your kind of Church and all the vile you have spewed in his name. You have done more damage to God than you know. You can kiss my Human loving Ass.


This makes me happy....

Double Take

So I am watching a this dorky movie with Kevin Smith and every time I see Kevin Smith I think of this guy I dated that looks like Kevin Smith. I mean double take looks like Kevin Smith. And it got me thinking of all the other guys I dated who look like famous people. And not that well if I had to pick a famous person I would pick ...

I also dated a guy that looked like Weired Al. No Seriously it was freaky minus the curly hair. So was the sex , freaky not curly, but that is another blog.

There was the guy that thought he looked like Tom Cruise but he was only dreaming he looked like Rob Scheider and he would get really pissed when I would tell him that. That might be because I told him he looked like Rob Scheider in Hot Chick which was funny on more levels than most of you know.

My sister looks like Blossom
And I look like Fern : )

Gardening with a Guerrilla

I was watching ABC NEWS and good ole Charlie Gibson was doing his good feel story at the end of the news and he told of this thing going around called Guerrilla Gardening. Groups of people gather at blighted city spots clean it up and plant flowers and shrubs. They do it at night because they are cleaning and planting on city property and it is "illegal" but it is not the typical crime they go after, I know you all are a bunch a rebels and are just looking for trouble. So go plant people

Book Club

My Book Club is small and eclectic. We are also nuts. My friend Shamus and I started it about 2 years ago and have been through several phases. We went from Book Club to Game Group to Dinner Club to Nothing.

Now we are back again at book club. I have put an add up on Craigs List and I am thinking about Facebook/Myspace. But not sure. We are reading Junot Diaz's Pulitzer Prize winning 'The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao'. You may ask how did you find this book? NPR I do on occasion listen to NPR and though the interview I heard was some time ago I was fascinated. So I picked it. Don't ask me what about the interview fascinated me I have slept many moons since then.

If you are a local yocal come and join us 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. If you are not local but come into town when we meet then come by. Or if you have read a good book please tell me so I can ask my group to read it.

What good book have you read?

Is there something you would like to read?

I think you are a pig

I really do. I thought that we had settled this whole we are nothing more than friends thing. Me + you = friends, not friends with benefits JUST FRIENDS.
But, you seem to take some huge great offense that have slept with other guys and not you. I was trying to be polite when I said "I just don't see you that way. I just see you as a friend." If you don't know that means I will NEVER sleep with you. I can't see myself kissing you much less having sex with you. And after you flat out ignoring my whole "We're friends" Thing and you kept asking for me to give it a try let me try and get you hot. I don't think I even see you as a friend any more. You are fucking 4 freaking 5 years old. Grow the fuck up. I have delt with 20 year olds who understand this were just friends thing better than you do.

What is Parnormal?

I have been asked that question quite a bit lately. The first few times it threw me off. Not like when someone ask you with all seriousness who is George Clooney? More like when the ask you who is C. Thomas Howell?

So what is paranormal?

According to Wikipedia Paranormal is a general term that describes unusual experiences that lack a scientific explanation,[1] or phenomena alleged to be outside of science's current ability to explain or measure.[2] In parapsychology, it is used to describe the potentially psychic phenomena of telepathy, extra-sensory perception, psychokinesis, ghosts, and hauntings. The term is also applied to UFOs, some creatures that fall under the scope of cryptozoology, purported phenomena surrounding the Bermuda Triangle, and other non-psychic subjects.[3] Stories relating to paranormal phenomena are found in popular culture and folklore, but the scientific community, as referenced in statements made by organization such as the United States National Science Foundation, contends that scientific evidence does not support paranormal beliefs.[4]

The group I am part of basically Ghost Hunts. We don't like to be called Ghost Busters it is a big No no. We will not come in and take your ghost home with us and put him in our storage locker. if you call or e-mail us we will come and bring in all out toys and tell you if we think you might have a ghost or if you have old pipes. The Group I am part of will come into your home with an open mind. But we are also looking at what else could cause that.


Does the wind cause the door to swing shut?Or do you step on the floor boards and it causes the door to shut?
Is that sound the pipes?
Is someone off their medication? Or taking more than they should?
In that picture is someone smoking? Is it their hair? Did you know that like 90% of the time that orb is a bug or dust.

And there are the things that we stop and say WTF was that? There are just some things we see and hear that make us wonder.

So yes I Ghost Hunt that is what for me being into paranormal investigation is all about. That is the boiled down version. I have a digital voice recorder and a point and shoot camera. Next on my to buy list is an EMF detector But if any of you out would like to gift to me an inferred camera I will gladly forward you my mailing address. I will also answer your questions.

Today when my Boos took me and my co-worker to lunch at Wendy's. He told me, I need to be finished with Domino's by May 1st. I did not have this euphoric "THANK YOU JESUS!!!!" feeling I expected. I am terrified.

I called the worlds best baby sister and told her how I was feeling. She told me " He's your Boss and maybe he needs your focus totally on this PA (Personal Assistant) thing."

I am getting my raise apparently May 1st I don't know how much and I am scared. Scare to do this on one job. I know I have been wanting one job for 2 years now. But the thought of doing it on one scares the shit out of me. The economy is in the toilet in case you missed the news lately. So its not like I can just go back out and find a second job that bends to my crazy life style or hell a second job at all.

So this great elation, the joy , the thrill I wanted to have. The feelings I was sure I would have. I don't. I re dated my resignation letter today and it brought me no joy. I have had plans for my resignation blog for over a year this was not how I was going to tell you all I had one job this was not in my plan this must be where God Laughs do you hear him?

Top Mom the answer to your question is coming.

Do you have a Pass Port

"Did you know that on June 1, 2009, U.S. citizens must present a passport book, passport card, or other travel documents approved by the U.S. government to leave or enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Bermuda at all points of entry? If unaware of this policy change you are probably like many American citizens that may get caught off guard while preparing to board an airplane or ship for vacation this year."

From personal experience it can take up to six weeks to get a passport - -and that is if you already have a certified birth certificate. Those (with the raised seal - not a photocopy) can take a month or more to obtain. If you are planning on leaving the country at all, go ahead and get the ball rolling on getting your passport.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


So life has been busy. I am still working at Domino's. But then I have had my resignation letter written for over 2 years. Am hoping way to much here? I wonder if this is not like when I was a kid and I told Santa I wanted half the toy section of the Sears catalog. I didn't get it. Damn that elf. The State is slow.

I have officially paid off my car and I have the title. Last Saturday when I was delivering pizzas as the tornado sirens were going off and the wind and rain was blowing. I knew that was going to be it. I knew that would be when a tree would fall on my paid off car. Then the hail started and the house I was delivering at asked me in out of the rain and then thanked me tipped me and sent me back out to die.

But I didn't die because I am writing a new blog unless well I am a ghost booooo.
Are you scared?

So I now have to come up with a game plan so what is next for me. Next I have been so busy thinking about what I need now next has been nothing but far off dreams.

Though in big news I am going on a cruise with my paranormal group in October. That is 5 days with meals for $340. CAN YOU SAY WHOLLY SHIT!!

There is your quick up date.

I have spent the last week or so working on a blog about Domestic Violence I have been extremely stirred about the recent news with Chris Brown and Rihanna. I did some research and made phone calls, talked to someone at The National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-SAFE). I had statics 1 in 4 women, 1 in 9 men. Asked lots of questions and then as they listed the things that fit in with what is Domestic Violence.

I had to come to terms with my own experience with it which I am still doing and to a large extent, I had never really thought of what had happened as an act of Domestic Violence. As I was telling a friend about it I was still making excuses for him, as if it mattered, he said “uh huh”. That bothered me. It bothered me that I was still after all this time making excuses for his behavior that night. I am not yet in a place where I can share what happened that night here. I don’t know that I ever will be.

I do know that I am going to post more on this topic. The main fact is NO WOMAN OR MAN should have to put up with being treated as less than.

Lies My Mother taught me

Parents like to brag I teach little Jimmy to tell the truth. YA right up till he tells the Diet Tribe that you are part of that you all had lunch at Baskin Robbins today.

I was taught not to lie. One Sunday Daddy missed Church and Mr. and Mrs. Evans two of the Church Elders turned and asked me where my Daddy was (Mom was singing in the Choir)and I with the innocence of my 6 or 7 years told them that my Daddy had had to much to drink last night and stayed home. I remember Mr. Evans' eyes getting wide and him saying "OH" and turning back around in the pew. After Church I told Momma what I had said and she had her first of many mini strokes right there in the car in the church parking lot. " YOU SAID WHAT!?!!?! You're Father ate something that made him sick!" Oh she was pissed. But I had heard her helping him up the stairs that night and them "talking" that morning. Yes Daddy was sick its called a hangover. So I was not tell those kind of things? Ya know LIE.

I was in high school and had gotten suspended over something stupid. I yelled at Mrs. Brasher. She sent me to the office and Mrs. Johnson the Principal suspended me. She asked me " Fran, What is your Mother going to do to you?" I told her "She is going to beat the shit out of me." How many times had that woman told me if I did not straighten up she was going to beat the fire out of me? She had made the threat on numerous occasions. Again this was one was those times my Mother had a mini stroke she was in tears when I picked her up from work. Mrs. Johnson had called her and asked to please not beat me. Well if you don't want me to tell people that you are going to beat me then maybe you should mot tell me to shut my mouth or you will shut it for me.

So I learned from my mother that you don't tell the whole truth which is different from what I was taught because you don't tell the Church Elders that your Dad is home hungover. It is also wrong tell your mother that you are going to the mall and then go and drive thru the parking lot and leave. Well I was at the mall. Why are you mad. I went to the mall I just didn't stay. I didn't lie did I ?

So when you tell your children YOU TOLD HER WHAT? Remember one day they are going to use this whole not tell you the whole truth thing back on you and well just remember Dad had to much to drink last night. My Mother is still pissed about that.

What did you read?

I saw this in a window of a closed shop while we were in Mobile, Al for Mardi Gras. When you first read the T-shirt what was your first thought? When you read “I Read Dead People.” Who did you think of or what? If I told you it was a book store mixed amongst a bunch of funky little shops then what would you think of it?

When I first saw this T-shirt I thought of my friend Donna who communicates with the dead. Thus “I read dead people.” It was my first thought, The metaphysical then paranormal.

Then later as I drove back to Nashville I am not sure if you would call it an AHHHH moment or a DUH moment I thought of Steph and her being an English Major and then said “I READ DEAD PEOPLE.” I felt like a dumb ass. The thoughts were you moron dead as in Tolstoy, Shakespeare. Literature! It was a BOOK STORE WITH BOOKS
I am such a dork.

America's Manliest City

I live in America's Manliest City Nashville, TN. It means that we have lots of Hardware Stores and Truck Rallies and men who hunt. I have dated some of these men and I don't want them. They are pigs. Someone over at Asylum is all pissy because New York didn't get the title and is whinning how country music is not manly well hell dumb ass why don't you bring your little prissy ass down here and shot and clean a deer. Not that I want to do that myself I will just eat it.But yea come on come kill your dinner.

It seems that all the cities that came in behind Nashville are a little miffed too. Because we have men that fart and scratch their balls in public. I know the idea of having more monster truck rallies has me wanting to run down there and catch me a husband because I love me some monster truck rallies just as much as I love Republicans and the whole truck rally thing is not something I have tried yet.

It was freakin COMBOS people now those I love. But the pizza ones not the cracker Cheddar ones. But I am off topic it was not like it was Budwiser that said it. Nor was it the ever manly makers shot gun shells. Not even Jack Daniels. It was a snack food and not a very popular one at that. But still all you loser cities can stick it.

Self vs. Higher Self

I was there. I was caught up I was saying to myself.

Self: you are all caught up you could quit that second job and just relax until everything comes through you'll be OK.

Higher Self: look here you should wait till the money is in the bank. You know that is the smart thing to do. You know that as soon as you think you're in the clear something happens.

Self: Well of course it is the smart thing to do. And of course something happens it always does. It is like coming home from school early and having sex in your parents bed only for them to pull in the drive way. ( Higher Self rolling eyes) < lots of whinning here > But I want to quit my other job. < stomping feet>

Higher Self: Look here it is really not going to be that much longer. Stop whining. Your friends are really sick of hearing you whine about it. Besides something has happened

Self: How the Hell can they be sick of hearing me whine when I have no friends left because I am always working. What do you mean something has happened? Did I get my check from the IRS?

Higher Self: Yes you got it.

Self: Yes I need that for.....(checking account) wait a freakin minute Well thanks a lot!! You are supposed to cheer me up.

Higher Self: I was trying.

Self: UGH!!

Higher Self: Still you got that good news you have those contracts and have signed them and turned them in so its a matter of time

I can't win.

Inflammatory Breast Cancer

I had never heard of IBC. Have you? I checked it out on snoopes. Then here http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/sites-types/ibc . I ask that if you have a bigger blog roll than me or lots and lots of Girl Friends that you pass this on to them.

What is this thing called a snow blower?

All these people write blogs about about having to drag out the snow blower and blow the side walk and driveway or they'll get a ticket. Which is a shock to me they write you tickets for snow in our driveway? How totally absurd. In the south they will write you a ticket for blowing snow in your drive way but I don't write that kind of blog.

Here is the bunny I promised you all. I know I said you all were going to get this happy bunny post but hell didn't any of you people see that happy bunny love story Fatal Attraction? But I swear this is not going to be that bad.

I have great news I got my lap top back what does this mean you ask. It means that I can post from my living room in front of the TV or better yet like I am now from my bed, because I can't sleep. It also means I can download pictures and I can add pics to my facebook page. I know this is the news you have been waiting to hear from me. Now you are saying WOW my days will be so much better now that The Goddess has her lap top back.

There are many other pluses to this. I can work from home a few days a month. Or better yet a nice local coffee house. I can travel to another city and do work there too. Mwahahaha

It is also going to much easier to plot world domination from my lap top. But it is just after 1 AM here and if I don't get some sleep I will be way behind schedule in world domination so I am going to need minions.

Again with the Deep thought

So my Friend Steph is apparently on this deep thought kick here as of late and has poised yet another deep question she says your answer can't be exercise and drink water. This is also where I swear on my favorite comfy pants that my next blog will be more up beat with cheery things like bunnies and signing raccoons.

What is there in your life that you think you should be doing but don't? Why?

I really think I should be going back to school and working on my Degree. I somehow feel uncompleted without it and as if my life is missing something.

Why don't I? Well, off the bat it is because I am already working 2 jobs I don't need to add school to that. I keep thinking that once I am down to one I will be able to put the focus to school that it really needs. Put on my bobby socks and saddle shoes and go get em.

Secondly well deep inside me in the very dark places of my mind and psyche where I do not let people even me. I don't think I can do it. I see myself as a failure. I am scared to death of heights but I want to jump out of a plane and meet this fear head on. But this fear has a deep hold on me and I would much rather stand in the door of a plane thousands of feet above ground and think about jumping out than face school again. I mean if I fail to jump out of a plane people look at you and say I wouldn't have jumped either.

Then it makes me mad as hell because that bitch wins. The one that told me I couldn't do it in the 6th grade. So I am filled with fear and shame. I am full of shame for not having finished school and full of fear to try and that I never will. Then I am back to shame and we are on to yet another deep question what is your fear.

So I should be going to school and I am not because I am afraid to fail.

This isn't honestly all the beads I have. I have many many more. This is a display from the first night we went out. I am home from Mobile none the worse for wear. I ate , I drank , I had a good time and I kept my shirt on the whole time.

The fact there was a fleet in town from the USS HAWES made it hard. Here Sailor Sailor. But seriously I was well behaved.

I did not have Internet access there in Bayou La Batre. My friend had an air card and even that didn't work. So we were out in the middle of no where. The good part of being out in the middle of the Bayou was fresh shrimp at $4 a pound. Yummmy. I brought some home and plan on having a shrimp boil tonight.

So being out there in the middle of no where I did not get to wish RWK a Happy Birthday on Sunday. Sorry I am late. Hope it was a good one.

I was able to let go of a lot of stress while away. That tightness in my chest is gone. But I didn't gain any clarity on other issues going through my head. I did not arrive home with the "THIS IS WHAT I AM GOING TO DO." I still don't have a clue what my next move should be.

I had told the people I traveled with that I was not going to return with them but I was going to stay there in Mobile. "Really? What would you do here?" They asked. My reply had to be honest and the answers was "nothing. I 'd just be running from the problems I didn't want to face at home and those tend to follow you where ever you go." So I came home and now I am going to have to figure out what tune is playing so I can face it. I hope it is a little cheery and not the Storm Trooper March

No Table

This year there was no table for ONE. Don't get all squeally on me and think I met someone that would not be the case.I decided I could either afford to go to Mobile for Mardi Gras with some girlfriends or spend that money on dinner for myself. So I did not go out all dressed up alone for Valentines Day. I freakin worked. I was supposed to deliver pizza but this weekend at job one has been just one major disaster after another and I would have had to cancel my dinner reservations anyway. Not that I was any less ticked off. So I spent valentines day not meeting with my Paranormal Group ( which I have missed the last 3 months we met because of freakin work) not having lunch with some GF like we planned but working and very very grumpy. Because I was stuck at job One long enough that I could not go to job two so I lost money because hey I am on freakin salary.

There was no wow I am wonderful, I love me ,I am great this year. There was a large amount of self pity , loathing and all around grumpiness. But I lived. I am still in a sour ass mood. Thursday can not get soon enough. And if one person ask how was your Valentine's day I might just punch them in the face. So how the hell are you?

What's it like when you have the most fun?

I did this for Steph because I like her best.

I think for me when I have the most fun I am number one With Friends.I am relaxed and at ease. I love it when you can sit ; talk and let it all flow you don't have to worry about what you say. When silence does come it is not uncomfortable it just is. When you laugh so hard that you cry.
When you disagree it is just that you disagree its not a fight our an argument and you learn a new point and can come away going gee I never thought of it quite like that.
It is those times when I feel I come away richer for the time spent with the people.

So What's it like when you have the most fun?

Tips For Job Hunters

I do HR work. I review and check references. Here are a few tips from what I have seen. And because people are stupid.

Now I don’t claim to have good sentence structure which if you read my blog you know this. But....

Dress: Come in to fill out your application dressed nicely flip-flops; shorts and a T-shirt are a no no. Tone down the perfume/cologne, Comb and style your hair, tone down the make-up

Previous Employment: Already have all your background information written down. Asking for a phone book to look up a past employer is not good. Have their address as well as phone number. Remember many companies will require you to fill out an application even though you handed in a resume. Some going back 5 to 10years.

Make sure you have your Driver License, Social Security Card Etc. with you. If you have a special certification CPR, Nurses Licenses have that with you also. Copies of other Certifications might be helpful too bring those along. Without an Advanced Degree we require a copy of the High School Diploma.

Personal References Check with your personal references before you put their name, number and Address down. You want to be sure you have all the correct information and they are willing to speak for you. You might also want to have whom they work for and their title some employers ask for this.

I called a personal reference for one person and they refused to speak to me because he had been her supervisor. "Saying I can not give out a personal reference for an employee".

I have also called only to be told that I have the wrong number that “Joe” no longer has this number and I have had it for 2 years.

I have had the misfortune of calling and the person had passed away months ago.


DO NOT USE RELATIVES this means cousins, husbands, wives, live-in BF OR GF ,In-laws etc. It just looks bad.

Make sure you are using people that will return a phone call and avoid using the ones you know call back a missed call and say “ yeah I got a call from this number”. That does not help YOU when I am making calls for 15 applicants a day and I have to call three references and go back 5 years of employment for each. I have called a lot of people today.

If You are trying to get a job use people who will help you get that job. You want to use people that can put together a sentence. I always ask what are
"Suzie's" strenghs and I am often left having to explain to the person I called what I mean by strenghs. You want people that can talk about you in a positive light. People who aren't shocked to know you are looking for a job.

It is simple people you call up your friend "Hey Steph I am applying for some jobs and was wondering of it was OK if I use you as a personal reference." "Thank you" "Let me verify your info is 555-123-4567 still the best way for you to be reached? Or would you rather me use your office number?"

Always have 3 to 5 people whoes names you can give and give names of people that know about your skills in the area you are applying.

OTHER: Turn off your cell phone if you can not stay off your phone long enough to fill out an application how are you going to stay off long enough to do the job you are applying for.

Leave your kids, husband, wife, or friend etc outside better yet at home. If they keep coming in to see how much longer you are going to be then I sure do not need that kind of distraction in the work place.

If you are offered a job and something happens that will prevent you from stating when you say you can, stay in touch with the company. An applicant once applied and was granted a job a death in the family prevented her from starting when she stated she could. We phone her at 2 and 3 weeks after the death to see if she was still interested in the job she did not call back until 6 weeks or more after the stated start date asking if she still had a job. The Answer was No. Had she been in touch we would have worked with her but her lack of action showed something about her we were not interested in and the offer was retracted.

PLEASE PLEASE if you have some crazy ass cutesy little ring back tone or message change it while you are looking for a job. I always think twice when I get this " Hey all my Bitches and Hoes I can't answer my fucking phone leave a message" or something similar your friends may think it is cute the people trying to give you a job don't. Leave a simple message "You have reached the personal voice mail of The Ferngoddess I am sorry I missed your call. Please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as possible." Leave Jesus out of it.

Sit down and Google your name. Check your Facebook , Myspace , Blogger ETC companies do searches for these now and many a job has been lost over having half dressed photos on Myspace. If the company you are applying for can find it so can their clients. Tone it down and change your profile picture.

That's all I have. Can you tell I have had a rough few weeks?

Do not hit on the person doing the interview. I once had a guy walk in and tell me I was just as sexy as my voice and then during the interview went on to ask me out over and over again. He kept tell me how hot I was. He didn't get the job

Coupons for Condoms

It so happens that in today’s Sunday paper there was a $2.00 off coupon for condoms. YEPPIE discount coupons you gotta love them. It is some how more exciting than picking them up from the local free clinic. Don’t get me wrong that was one of the great things about college were the fish bowls of condoms all over the place. Heck I went to parties where they had baskets of condoms sitting out. What is about growing up that they stop doing that? At what point is it that you stop drinking “The Beast” and start paying for you condoms. It could be that those two come together. The true sign of adulthood more expensive beer and you pay for your birth control. It is either that or pay for diapers.

What could be that ultimate HA was that in the next section of coupons in today’s paper there was also a coupon a pregnancy test. It was only a $1.00 off. So I clipped out both. I mean let’s be realistic here. If you are using condoms there is a chance you might need the pregnancy test.

I mean I do have that ball gown in my closet just in case so why not. Isn’t that all you need in that little dress purse anyway?

Stolen life

My life has been stolen from me. I can give you the list Domino's ,Facebook or just the Internet in general. I am sure I can find someone else to blame. But despite what my Mother may think this is not her fault. I think at this point the only thing that keeps Facebook from totally taking over is the fact my lap top is in the shop.

::Shameless Plug(BTW if you need your computer fixed up let me know my buddy is the one fixing it and he is really good at what he does) End Shameless plug::

I need help. Please send tips I will let you know when I have the pay pal account set up so you do that.

Your Letter

You all know when I go deep cleaning in drawers and what not you are all in trouble because I am going to find something and it is going to bring back a flood of memories and you are going to have to hear about it.

I was looking for my 2007 taxes which I had tore up the house trying to find. I had looked under my bed , in my dresser , in the closest , in my file cabinet and even in the attic I went through my desk once more and could not find my taxes but I did find a white envelope without anything on at but something in it. SO I opened it and read it. It was a love letter. From a man I at one time cared very deeply for things happened and we each moved on. So when I got this love letter from him long after we had both moved on it came as a bit of a shock. I don't know that after I got the letter if I was fair to him or if we were fair to each other. Or maybe if it came down to the past had done to much to each of us. Who we were still wouldn't let it work. I wouldn't let it work. I never doubted his feelings. But I think about him and hope he is well and happy. We have not spoken in sometime. Sadly that can be for the best. I wonder if it is? I often hope when I visit Chattanooga I will run into him. He is just one of those people I want to know is OK. So tucked in a drawer in a plain white envelope is the profession of his love.

Anyway it just got me in thinking. I did find my taxes in the garage. WTF?!?!
But I do still have your letter and Porfiler was a great time.

It happened not 10 minutes ago. We got the Initial License from the State!!! ONE JOB HERE I COME!!! I want to cry I am so happy. I have been waiting and working on this for over 2 years. And it is Finally here. OK there are a few more forms with the State to sign but there is a BRIGHT LIGHT at the end of the tunnel and I have hope. This all sucks by the fact that I am working all weekend delivering pizza. But this is the last SUPER BOWL weekend I deliver pizza.

I am not going to walk in and quit tonight though I want to. I am going to wait till the money is in the bank but who wants to help me plan a party?

Which Door?

If you could pay your bills and then had money left over what would you do? And I mean send each of the people you owe money to what you owe them and not send enough to each to keep them from shutting off the cable or the lights. But go OH I owe NES 73.25 and send them 73.25 and when you were done there was money there to say I don't know buy a ticket to Jamaica with.

Or do you reach a point where you go humm screw Discover I already owe them a bazillion dollars.

So I am faced with this well issue. To do something wise or be say we STUPID. The fact is stupid can be fun. I have had lots of fun doing stupid things. Though when you are caught and sitting in the Principal's office your like "oops." And you have to weigh if doing this stupid thing is worth the backlash.

But then there is this part of you that really wants to rationalize what your are thinking as not stupid.

I am about 95% sure I am getting some form of a tax return.

So do I buy a new computer with a CD Burner and the ability to download and store sound bites and do power point and other fun stuff.


Do I pay Discover. I mean my credit is shot to hell so it is not going to get worse I can pay them later. Right?

This is what is going on in my head. Discover vs. Computer.

I know I don't have to have a computer. I can take my tax return and pay off a good hunk of Discover but I can also say the reverse. One is wise the other well not so smart But I don't claim to be a rocket scientist.

But as a rule of thumb for me if I make plans for my money say to pay a big hunk off a bill with money coming in. Something big will happen and I will have to say buy a new hot water heater or something like that.

Maybe it would be best to wait until I have the money or maybe I could get it all in ones and find a stripper and shove it in his G-String one bill at a time. If I did it that way who would want to come?

I have nothing. I am not filled at all with a sudden burst of inspiration. I can normally sit down and start talking about how I have nothing to say and a page will flow out. I can welcome my friend Mel to the bloggy world. HELLO MEL.

Flash Back

Here we are. Kim Murray Fitzwater, ME , and Holly Yarborough Whitehurst. When we met for lunch yesterday it had been 21 years since we had seen each other. These are people from high school. That place we all hated to be. Kim and Holly are both married with kids. Holly is still funny as hell. For that matter so is Kim. We talked about how angry we were then. Mad at the world. Who was where. Who had died. Who we had seen and who we hadn't. As we went through the list I was shocked that I had kept track of a lot of people. I knew where they were. WOW, I surprised myself.

There was a time in my life when I really felt I had no need for the people from high school. But I do. I sure hope I am not the same person I was then. They aren't. I enjoyed it the time went by so quickly.

We just could not get in 21 years in such a short time. These are women I definitely want in my life. I think they would enrich the mixture that is me. Who can I add to the mix next?

Conversation Interuptius

After my last blog post I received an anonymous comment with a link http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28538509. That link is to a story about an Author and Spiritual Leader Neale Donald Walsch whose books I have read and ideas I have to a certain extent embraced. He has groups that meet allover the country to read and discuss his books and ideas. He holds expensive seminars around the country. Neale has written his books based on his Conversations with God thus the title of the book.

I was part of a local discussion group here in Nashville and the group took a turn in leadership I decided I did not want to follow and I left. But I also deeply felt my time in the group had run its course.

OK back to point as I again am rambling sorry but it is one of my lovable qualities right?
Neale had told a story and claimed it as his own. It was not his story but he said it was. It was in fact a story that had been copyrighted by someone else. Oopps.

I was not devastated but I have spent time thinking about how someone could take a story and so deeply internalize it that he thought of it as his own.
Then I look at say my family. I have told a story about my Mother back handing me at the dinner table and her dinner ring busting my lip open. My Mother will say "I never back handed you. You are just making stuff up!" In my mind the abuse happened in my mothers she only lightly swatted me now and again. Who should one believe? We each have our on account of events they are both vastly different.

I think it is very unfortunate that Mr.Walsch took a story that was not his and made it his own. Perhalps I should be scorned for telling people my Mother used to knock the snot out of me. Either way someone is making shit up.

Humans are not perfect. Are there still people out there that do shit that totally blows my mind? Yep. I am still shocked things people do. But this not so much.

I also always thought paying large sums of money to hear him speak was rather cultish

Little DANCE

I have a follower!! Can you believe that? I was so down and depressed you know the whole no one likes everyone hates me. NO ONE reads my blog. It has been quite horrid but now I have proof that there is one person out there that reads my blog. Of course later she might want a kidney.

Speaking of following I followed the traffic this morning through the drive thru at Hardies and did not get what I ordered I can feel the grease coming out of my pours and I did even really enjoy my sausage ham cheese biscuit. The decaf coffee was ok and their coffee sucks bricks.

I have however managed to get Wedensday afternoon off and Thursday I am going to Chattanooga for girls night!! I have not been in since the summer so this will be a nice trip. I am really looking forward to it. That is two reason to dance. Lets see by the end of the day how many more reasons I have to shake my groove thang.

This is so me


So a few weeks ago I went to Sonic got me a Chilli Cheese Dog , Large Onion Ring and a Chocolate Shake and came home to watch tv. People laugh when I say I am being watched but I swear to you there is someone in my home. So when I go all totally BAT SHIT CRAZY you'll know to check the comics

But I did ask a few people if I should feel gulity eatting that and watching the Biggest Loser.
