Proudly Pissed Off!

I had a great blog all pre-written for today, but sadly something happened Tuesday that's had lingering effects on my heart and mind. And well- then my reaction to an insipid, non-researching, dumbass, jerk-wad, douche bag reporter has all but consumed my being. So I wrote him a pleasant little e-mail this morning. And just for shits and giggles- I am posting here, since everyone loves seeing me go ape-shit on some unsuspecting bastard.
I do not wish to go into the gruesome details of the call in question, or the names of those I care about deeply and have been equally effected by this call, so please do not ask. There is enough information given in the news stories to give you an idea of the tragedy occurred.
I will not and have not changed his name or the name of one of his co-workers, so you all can maybe Google his reporting on this matter. Or go directly to www.WOODTV.com and watch the video.
Below the copy of my letter will be my thoughts...

More Then Meets the Eye!

This little bottle makes me a very happy happy little girl! The last time Mountain Dew had this out on the shelves was the summer of 2004. A year I went to my first Nascar race, had my first husband cheat on me, and filed for divorce. Well- two outta three ain't bad, right? Ahhh, memories. I love this stuff! It's tastes great! And- if you drink too much in one day- oh boy what a surprise you get the next morning when you go potty!

I sure do hope it's an Auto-bot and not a Decepticon... If he were a bad guy- I'd be scared shitless.

My yard smells so great right now- what with this tree blooming and the freshly cut grass... I think I'll make a couple bouquets for the house this afternoon...


These are fresh new lightning shots from Wednesday night. Can anyone else say- Keeerrrr-Zootttt! Like the dude in Alger Height- he did. He also went to the hospital from a confirmed lightning strike... He lived and now has a new found fear of thunderstorms...

Vampire for a Day

Here I sit, hiding in the cool darkness of a house with all the blinds and curtains drawn... Why you may ask? Because I am a color not found in nature. I am a crispy, sun dried version of my former self. I am stupid and did not wear sunblock of any form yesterday whilst working in the garlic patch with Hubby and Bori-al-is yesterday for seven glorious hours. Up side- we have 1500 baby garlics planted. own side- I am a lobster. The warm sun felt great, right up until I started smelling charred flesh knowing it was my own. So today I am constantly slathering myself in lotions and aloe juice. Taking Tylenol with a fevered passion, and drinking a poop-ton of Gatorade, since I've proven that hydration is the key to not peeling like a damn snake. Staying inside today isn't all bad. There is plenty to do indoors. I've done a seriously in detail vacuuming and dusting of the house. Washed windows, worked on internal 'puter cleaning (hard drives wise), editing pictures taken this…

"My mind rebels at stagnation..."
My favorite line from the Robert Downey J.r Jude Law remake of Sherlock Holmes... It is how I feel today. It isn't that I haven't been a might productive, it's just I feel as though my mind is rotting. I cannot explain it, it just is.
What I've done today- in order: Cooked dog chicken Washed 4 loads of laundry, hung on the clothesline outside Picked up the house Worked on new painting (a sign for my craft fair thing on June 18th) Gutted, sorted, re-organized, swept out kitchen pantry Wrote down shopping list Showered and dressed Went to the store for groceries and Hubby's prescription Unloaded groceries once I got home Cleaned up the kitchen & did dishes Pulled lawn chairs from garage and set them in the yard Found, washed, filled hummingbird feeders Brought in all the laundry from the line and put it away Watched the neighbor till our patch for garlic planting tomorrow (crosses fingers) Listened ot the new 80's songs I downloade…

Busy Busy Life...

I have been super busy since Monday. Work has been a little nuts and things with my photography have suddenly taken a turn for the super cool! Kirin wanted me to do some tweaking with a set she's going to post on SG and I finally got around to doing that since this is the first week I haven't felt like shit since catching strep throat. Hubby came down with something on Monday that we thought was a mold allergy, turns out last night after going to see Stupid Skinny Bitch Doctor last night- he has double ear infections and bronchitis. Poor Hubby. On the up side- he didn't catch strep from me! So now he has an inhaler and antibiotics to take. Fun fun.
My mom informed me Tuesday that she signed us up for a booth at the Lamont Days (think small town celebration kinda crafty fair deal) thing in June. June 18th to be exact. So, since I still have a bit of time to prep, my freak out from the past two days has cooled to a mild temperament of- Shit- still have a lot to do. Just to na…

Almost 10 Years...

Last night was a rough night. Hubby and I had a touchy evening which turned into him not being able to fall asleep and getting up to watch TV around eleven. As soon as I heard the TV come on in the other room, he called for me to get up. Reluctantly, I did, tugging on my robe and staggering my sleepy behind into the living room. There, on the screen, were video images of Osama Bin Laden with voice over being done by both Martha Raddatz and George Stepho-greek-polis. At the very bottom of the screen it read in bold letters- 5/1/2011- Osama Bin Laden DEAD.
It took time to register. For my brain to click in all the right spots, for the tumblers of memory to get in line and unlock ten years of pent up emotion. Emotion only felt on the anniversary of September 11th- by my personal choice. But when they did, when everything fell in line and the lock opened- so did the flood gates. I cried. I wept. I sobbed like a small child, curled up in a raw ball of human emotion and pain.
This September w…
