Saturday night........







                  I totally LOVE that cat...& yes, that is exactly how they think!!
     


                

                   
          My rn called tonight to check on me, how neat is that? She'd been told by my other nurse that I was totally depressed, etc...my mom's birthday is tomorrow, & I miss her...
        




Now that picture is just funny as hell!!

So, my neighbor brought me another thing of homemade veg soup tonight...MMMMM!!
My grandson (who isn't even 2 yet) called me from Chief's cell tonight...........I have no idea how, he must have hit the redial or something. but we had a 5 minute conversation...After he hung up I called her back...That was hilarious! She had no idea he called anyone!! I said he'll probly call China or something next! Watch your bill!
All right, I better go to bed...

Tuesday nite already??






...this is how cats see themselves...

I'm still eating all the time...even when I'm not hungry, for heaven's sake! Cuz, well, can I say it once more (loudly!)...I'm NOT getting a feeding tube, dammit~!! All of my home health care nurses tell me that that is my decision to make, & they're behind me 100%! My neighbor is always bringing me homemade soup & all that...& woohoo!!! She's already starting her holiday gift baking! She brought me some kind of crunchy coconut things tonight...that was two thumbs up!! But I also told her how I'm a no-bake cookie girl, bigtime!!...(wink, wink...)
I upgraded my dishtv & got investigation discovery, biography channel, science channel, trutv, own, etc...
My girl, Chief is not having fun with morning sickness...She describes herself as being on the 'verge of vomit', and sasys "Come on 2nd trimester!"...She got zofran today, & says it's a miracle! WHEE, a two-time granny!! Talan will make a great big brother!! Chief's already the best mom I could ever imagine...& Mr Chief is a great dad...

...devolution...it's on the way...

Saturday...





            Saturday already?? Wow...I'm eating all day now...& yes, I'm being careful...I can actually feel myself being heavier (ok, maybe I'm only 90 lbs, but, I'm working at it, as hard as other people try to lose...don't judge... :-/)
        My aide made me 2 grilled cheese sandwiches for breakfast...ok, well, it was lunchtime...then my neighbor brought me a big bowl of goulash (hahaha...ghoul-ash...as in halloween...)
         Speaking of halloween...I was SO disappointed! I only got like 10 or 15 kids here!! And here I had all this really funny candy & toys! I was chasing the kids down in my w/c..."Wait, take more!! And don't forget your coffin full of bones!!" But I called a pastor the next day & had him come out & pick up the rest of it, & donate it to Turning Point (battered women's & kids shelter). Who needs stupid Halloween candy more than those kids?




             Okay, I'm outta here...

Laughing is mandatory


Joey Sink-Oiler






             







Yes, I totally admit it, I'm a freak for cats, okay??
I watched my normal Monday night shows last night...I'm pretty much a creature of habit, now that I'm OLD~!


       


            I'm starting to realize how exactly much I'm really part of Marion, Ohio lately...my oldest brother designed & named the streets in Fairpark...one of which is Libby Lane...funny story here...I told my aide that today, she lives on that street...there's another street there called Easy St...she said, 'Oh, so they're both named after you, huh?' I toldja...she's either gonna keep me young, or she'll make me old...he also designed the streets on the other side of town, which are all named after European castles...Fairpark streets are mostly named after islands, like Barbados, Nassau, etc...
     And, my niece, Cara, is the guidance counselor at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushmore-Academy/177983215607296, & she's also started her own business in town, 








          ...having been a guidance counselor, she knows 


firsthand, exactly what a PITA college apps can be!! She 


was the guidance counselor in Upper Sandusky for a few 


years...which, for the uninitiated among you...Upper


Sandusky is about, ohhh, say, 75 miles SOUTH of

Sandusky...confused yet? 


             Okay, I'm tired...g'nite all!

Sunday Oct 30






              Nothin goin' on today...which is fine, I love lazy Sundays!! 
                   


         HAHAHAHA!!!


            
         Okay...I got sidetracked, by eating chicken salad sandwiches, & sloppy joes...all day...now I'm tired again, so...I guess I'll go to bed...

This is a buncha crap!







          All right...I've just about had it! I had my barium swallow test the other day & my neuro got the report immediately, so her assistant called me yesterday, &they made a consult appt with the hot surgeon again...but, this time she wanted me to get a feeding tube, cuz I aspirated everything! I explained that I'd had sessions with a speech therapist, & had already been given things to do to avoid that, like looking down when I swallow, take small bites, use that stuff you get at the drugstore that thickens stuff...I will NOT give up my cold can of Coke first thing in the morning!! Aw, geez! Just as all the shit in my life starts going better...I have my aide here 5 or 6 days a week, (she's almost my "comic relief"! ), I have PT 3 days a week, a nurse comes over 3 days a week to ck my vitals & my lungs are always clear my oxygen is always 98%, temp is always normal, bp is always 110/70...WTF else can I do??? Since I've been on prednisone for a month, I'm actually HUNGRY again, aide goes to the store for me a couple times a week, & gets me what ever sounds good...y'know, purple pickled eggs, chicken salad for sandwiches...etc. oh, on whole wheat bread~~! OMG...I actually stood on the scale, with help with my balance, & since I've been on pred for a month, I've gone from 85 lbs to...88 or 90! So, I won't get a f"*ng feeding tube, no thank you! But, I will go to my hot dr's for a consult...just to look at him again, ya know...
       So I sent my aide in the spare room the other day to find my leg brace...I hear "I found  you another present"  My  halloween slippers! & she found my pets.com puppet! Life's good...

                    Heeheeheee...Christmas is comin!!


Well, I guess Halloween is coming first...I just ordered my candy from http://www.orientaltrading.com/holidays/halloween-a1-90000+1237-5-0.fltr...
I need to practice my "CACKLE, CACKLE...I'll be the apartment everyone wants to come to...I ordered "gummy ear wax", "NOSE NUGGETS GUM'...they were out of my favorite, little bags of "werewolf hair" cotton candy...BOOOOOOO!!
             Halloween is my favorite "holiday", I guess...always has been...I just love scary stuff! Chief liked it a lot too...but not as much as me!~ I remember going trick-or-treating with her the year it snowed on Halloween...that was fun, actually, she got a shit-ton of candy that year, because it was SNOWY....it was a Sunday night, so they had been ready for lots of people...

Honk For Grandma!!


This was on the Marion, Ohio website awhile ago...

It's especially funny to me, because the one time when my brother & his family drove down to Myrtle Beach for vacation a couple years ago, there was Doug & wife...at that time they only had the first 3 kids...the oldest daughter & her brother put a sign in the window that said "HELP! We're being kidnapped!"...so...I rest my case, it's the Stevens gene....http://www.stevensconstruction.net/index.php
There are so many spiders out here, it's unreal!! Shit! Remember last Halloween a ferret came to my door & scratched on it, & ran in here when I opened the door? The pizza guy (oddly enough, I was having pizza then too. :-/!) I just got a pizza from a different place...he brought it in, & talked to me & Truman for a few...as he was leaving, he jumped back when he opened the door to leave, stomped on "a HUGE spider~!" Yay for Aaron!

          I feel so good...well, my rn home health care nurse came in today, & asked me how I feel, & I said "if I felt any better, I'd be twins" that's exactly WHY I wanted prednisone!!
          
           http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wimp.com%2Fcathairdryer%2F&h=ZAQCBXinxAQCd39OHaoXw13iDrIMgZAyhkGG636nYjCN1rw


        that link goes to one of the funniest videos I EVER saw!!


                         
             I' m making a huge attempt at humor lately...because all I'm doing is laughing, anyway...
       My home health people are connecting me with everybody I need in my life right now...I never even knew that there are "transport services" to take me to any doctor's appointment. They come here & come in & help me get in my scooter or wheelchair, all the people I've had as drivers are very nice & helpful...they drive a van with a lift on it, & they take me to the dr's office, then they go & do any other running around they have, & I call when I'm ready to get picked up! Having a chronic illness, and having to depend on others for everything is a huge wake-up call for somebody that never, ne-vah, ever wanted help from anyone! I remember some of my first words were "No! I do it MYSELF!!" ...somebody up in heaven is laughing every time you think that...
     I was talking to Bro last week, & I remembered how Mom always was encouraging me to read & write...I remember one of the first stories I ever wrote...it was a scary story...I was about 8, and I was writing about how to make the best "witches brew", & I specifically remember one line I wrote. It was in the ingredients list...some bones, not old dried-up bones, fresh, bloody ones'....gaaahhhh...can you even imagine what my Mom had to have thought?? She handled it well, though...explained how there were veins & arteries, and, no, your bones weren't just floating in a "bag of blood"...that right there explains a phrase that Mom used when she wrote her grandmother's book for Chief..."Tiffany, your mom always had such an indomitable spirit."
         Okay, I'm tired...have a lot more funny stuff that's been happening lately, but I'll get to it...

weekend's over...



I'm liking this new thingy for the blog...It's gonna take some getting used to, but, I'm flexible...
My mind is all over the place lately...like it's not usually? (snark!) 
Okay, one of the big things on my mind...Baby Lisa, allegedly kidnapped from her crib at home, last Monday night in Kansas City, Missouri I've watched interviews with the mom tons, over & over...I really hope I'm wrong here...but her 'affect' is way wrong...She reminds me of Susan Smith, who strapped her 2 little boys in their car seats,& pushed the car into John D Long lake in South Carolina years ago. I dunno, maybe it's just me...
Or, politics...My mind's definitely locked on Herman Cain...yeah, I'm on the Cain train...he's a smart & friendly businessman...probly the most 'personable' of all! I honestly wish that mostly the 'liberal Dems' didn't condescend to those of us that didn't go to college, ya know? Some of us were busy living our lives, & didn't have time to go to college endlessly. Don't hate on me cuz I'm a Fox fan, or anything. This is a big country...big enough for people who choose college as a 'career'...but also for those of us who don't choose that path...nobody's better than anybody else...we just look at things differently...if you refer to yourself as an openminded Democrat, why do you get so spastic & uptight if someone doesnt agree with you?

Still here...

All right, this is a taste of "homegrown Ohio boy", isn't he??? A friend of mine from grade school (3rd grade or so)...we lost touch when she & her family moved to Tucson then, but she connected with me on FB this year! That is really neat, & she said this pic reminds her & her little brother of Ohio! So much has happened lately, that shows why I could think this city is the 'center of the universe'...lol!
     I'm still trying to get used to the medicine change...the 20 mg pred a day is still great, I'm just trying to get used to having baclofen available, I take maybe 1 around noon...& it just knocks me out within a couple hours! Yup...just takes fiddling with it...Sucks, but you do what you have to...
          Have any of you heard some of the neat commercials lately? One that caught my attention is United Health Care's ad (that right there tells you how well it works, that I even remembered WHO it was for!)...There's an older guy riding his motorcycle talking about how they cross-referenced 2 of his rx's & caught a bad side effect if the 2 were taken together...And I totally love the tagline..."I plan to leave this world exhausted!!" Yeah, me too...I just had no clue how little of me would be left, fighting this ms shit!
         Oh yeah, I forgot to tell ya about my neighbor...she's kinda like a 'mom' to me...checks to see if I'm doing ok, every so often she shows up with dinner for me, yesterday it was beef & noodles, with mashed potatoes & a little cup of fruit! Holy hell, who needs a nursing home? lol! I just have great neighbors, etc...
              I've been to the er here twice this week, believe that crap? First was last Sat.....my aide Tiffany noticed my ankle was swollen & bruised...she asked what happened, but, you gotta figure what's comin..."Tiffany...I live in a wheelchair...maybe I twisted it when I was jogging?" ;-/ So she called the nurse I see here a couple times a week, that nurse sd to call 911 & go to the er. So, I called 911, MY girl (chief.......been her nickname since she was 5! Anyway, the er was deserted...Of course OSU was playing...nobody leaves their tv THEN!! I was there 5 hours, got xrayed & doppleeed for blood clots...nothin!!               BoUnCeS!!              LibbY

i'm baaack!!

I've been getting solu-medrol every 3 weeks for about 6 months, but it really hasnt helped me at all...I really like my neurologist, she's Ukrainian, I totally love her accent...'Leebee!'...haha...
So, at my appointment Monday, I was so upset & frustrated with ms, I almost started crying (which is one of the very worst symptoms of ms!)...can I get an amen from all my 'ms buddies' out there? Dr P reminded me that it's not relapsing any more...I really love this dr, she doesn't mince words or do that fancy dance around the reality...sometimes it hurts, but, it's always better to hear the truth straight out from your doctor. Most of the time...
So today would've been another iv day, but she's been trying for months to get me to do chemo...I've never really looked into it as an ms treatment, I'm just one of those people that freezes up at the word cuz automatically when you hear chemo, you think cancer...or is that just me? Even though I know that's not what it'd be for in my case.
But I pushed hard for my suggestion, & if I don't feel better, then I'll try the chemo, and she said okay...(she's the best!). Now I get 28 mgs of prednisone a day...right now I have the rx for 30 days + 3 refills! Prednisone is one of my best friends, ya know? Not only does it make me feel a little better physically (actually, it gives me enough strength to fight off the worst of the symptoms), but, like I just told one of my home health care nurses yesterday, I'll be grinning & laughing nonstop while I'm on it! That's true...it's my best friend when I get one of my 'frowny moods'! Also, I went downstairs to the lab, & got both the blood tests I was told to get a couple months ago...& OMG, she took 6 tubes of blood!! Holy crap! I'm really glad I finally got it done, though...Dr A, my primary doctor, his secretary called yesterday am, & said that my thyroid was high, they had to change my synthroid down from 125 mcgs a day to 112...so, maybe with the combination of 28 mgs a day of prednisone + lower thyroid, maybe I'll break 85 lbs...cross your fingers??
BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

Oh, my wittle baby girl is gonna be 28 Sunday, October 2! And she starts her new job the tenth, she got hired as a receptionist/medical assistant at the dr's that delivered her son! What's really neat about that dr is that he was a high school exchange student here when I was in 10th grade...this town can't be that bad, if he chose to come back here from India, when he could probly go just about anywhere in the world...they're gonna work with her college schedule...she's studying to be an rn, but her long-term goal is to be a midwife. Ick...that's like a garbageman's job...I wouldn't want it, but thank God somebody does!

...and you know what else?

...I remember being 'relieved' that it was 'only ms'...after my mri was read...if I knew then what I know now...I'd be wishing for a fucking brain tumor...that way...either it could be operated on and removed, or I'd die. Either way...

Friday, July 29, 2011

dear ms...

...or un-dear ms..

You've done your best to beat me down into a shadow of what I was supposed to be (in my mind, anyway!), but I thank God every day for making me be a strong woman to begin with, & giving me more strength with every new symptom that shows up...and that's been a whole fucking lot of symptoms over the last 17 years! Hell, I lost the physical ability to write in 1995, so it's a total blessing that computers have become something that nearly everyone has now. So, blah! Screw you! For some reason, the strongest people are the ones who are cursed/blessed with any kind of chronic disease...for the most part, the people who can still DO things seem to melt away into the background of your life, no matter how diligently they profess their undying support & affection. They probably still do, and that's okay, I've found a lot of friends since, and my life is still full! And, I've learned to expect that, you lose the level of respect for some, but, you learn some people you're better off losing them, instead of hanging on for too long....remember the saying "Familiarity breeds contempt" I've found it's all too true...
Honestly, if it wasn't for me being the one with this hated disease & learning all the ins & outs of it firsthand, who knows?? I may have taken off running. As much as I'd HATE to admit it, I might've run too! See, so that's why I think the strongest people are the ones who get this disease...cuz if I wasn't this strong, I'dve offed myself a loooooonnnnnnnggggggg time ago! One definite thing you learn is patience! When you learn how little you can do, on your own, and you have to do everything slowly, cuz you'll fuck up if you hurry, trust me, you'll learn patience.
Or, when I voluntarily quit driving when I was 40, oh my God, there was almost nothing I'd rather do than drive! From the first time I could drive, it was "my thing"...Mom always used to say I took to driving like a duck took to water! I always loved hearing her say that. I even requested to be transferred to a store 50 miles north of Marion when I was 20 years old, and it was the perfect job for me. Took exactly an hour up 23N to get to, but it was a great drive through the country, I never had to go deal with driving to some big city...it was just me & my rock...all through the 80's!
I'm really glad that I never knew I had ms until I was 29. If I'd known that I was going to get hit with the big "disabled" stick when I was a teenager, I never would've had, well, holy hell...Tiffany! Now that hurts like hell to think...because I still think she's the best of me, you know?
Anyway, you worthless sack of shit around my neck, I'm done writing you a worthless letter that doesn't make me feel better, just more depressed...thanks for the added strength...

okay...that's the end...

...I'm done with giving her that much concern. She deserves none, but is now getting ready to start her "bella vista"...I will forever feel like yacking up my dinner when I hear that phrase...
I did, however, sign the petition for Caylee's Law. How bad is society getting that we now need to have a LAW that says parents have to report a missing child in 24 hours? And it'll be a felony if you don't report a child's death in an hour.


And I'll give the last words to this guy...very colorful & descriptive language..rated at least R!

closing arguments, 9:00 am Sunday July 3, 2011

The more I see the video of Casey playing with Caylee on the floor, I'm more sure of her guilt than ever. Because the major trait of sociopathy is true feelings that other people don't really exist, they treat everyone as if they're things there for their enjoyment, and if they get in the way of THIS PERSON'S life, they're rarely ever close again.
The most obvious example would be Casey being seen as a good mom, playing with Caylee; however, Casey thinks of Caylee as a stuffed animal that she can take out & parade around, to keep the image going, but Casey's life is & always has been about what Casey wants.
I've heard a lot of people saying there's nothing but circumstantial evidence here...hmmmm...Scott Peterson has been on death row for how many years because he got the dp for killing his pregnant wife because of circumstantial evidence. I think Casey will get convicted, but not of murder 1, she'll get murder 2, life in prison. Honestly, the only reason I don't want her to get the death penalty is that her family sure as hell doesn't deserve that shit!

something (kinda) unexpected...

And now Cindy (Casey's mom) gets called to the witness stand and says that it was actually her that had looked up chloroform on their computer in Mar 08, not Casey. Wow. It's so painful to say, but, I can't make myself believe that...but I can't say I'd do anything different in the same situation...hypocritical? Perhaps...a mom will do anything possible to save her daughter's life from the death penalty, I think...

thursday 12:30 am

I really haven't been doing much of anything lately...well, yeah, I guess I have. Still trying to get all my receipts, etc together, & turned in for medicaid...

Casey Anthony...I hate this bitch more every hour...and I'm really irritated with the defense attorneys on the news shows that say "don't rush to judge!" Holy cow! It's been 3 freakin years!! I'm still not buying that she fell in the pool & drowned, #1...do you even think for one second that Caylee's grandpa would even for one second hide that baby's body in the woods instead of call 911?? He's a retired police officer, for heaven's sake!! The duct tape around Caylee's head & over her nose & mouth, they already said that she died because her airway was closed off, & it's definitely a "mom" thing that she had a pink heart sticker over where her mouth would've been...also that her body was actually wrapped in one of her Winnie-the-Pooh blankets...if that doesn't say 'sleep tight, my daughter'. What would?...

tv is all Casey, all the time...

Wow, I can't believe it hasn't rained for, like, two whole days!~! And yesterday, I felt really good, & rode my scooter up to the mailbox...hell, I haven't checked my mail myself since before Christmas! So, yesterday, I felt really good, then, today, it all went to hell...I felt all m s-y again. Yeah, I know, that's how life's gonna go for me forever, but, dammit, you don't need to freakin remind me every single time I think I'm gonna get a f*'n day off from it!! So, today, I've stayed inside here 'taking it easy'...(God, do I HATE that phrase!). So, one of my high school friends came over, cuz she was gonna take me grocery shopping today. But, nnnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooo...that's not my life anymore...one would think one would get used to it after 17 years...one would, but ahem...!
So, we decided we would not have any fun if I was feeling crappy, so I'll give her a call whatever day I feel okay again. And I've been in here all day, watching it be all sunny & everything...boo-hoo, poor, poor, pitiful me, to quote the famous Linda Ronstadt...
Anyway, I made it a busy day watching the Casey trial...I'm quite obsessive about that anyway...if you lived in the next apartment, you'dve thought I was watching a football game or something...I was yelling at the tv & stuff....nahhh, not really. But the defense's opening statement Tuesday was that they'd explain everything in the first couple minutes...& her attorney said that the reason Casey wasn't really worried about it was cuz Caylee was never missing at all. She had drowned in the pool that morning, & Casey's dad had found her body, & they had put her in the woods. Really?? Really?? Is anyone going to give that defense ANY consideration?? And her lawyer said the only reason she's such an accomplished liar is because she's had to lie all her life, because her dad & brother sexually molested her all her life. O M G !!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, I know, 'she lies....that doesn't make her a murderer' So I have one question...if she drowned, who in the hell put the tape over her mouth and nose, with a heart sticker over her mouth, and why?? Stay tuned to HLN for more details...:-/

trial...(Casey Anthony's, not mine!)



Well, I got steroids for the month today...Kev's mom & dad took me out to the hospital, they always take me to them, I love them, they are the kind of in-laws that I wish so bad that Tif would have...and, you know what? Nothing ever got done with my insurance company approving rehab at the nursing home...so...my window of willingness has slammed shut...I tried lots, you all know that. So, I'm applying for Medicaid (here I go, Sherry..), cuz I really can't afford to pay $700/month for insurance...so, be ready to throw me a lifejacket or something! Kev gave me a ride to see my pcp Tues, & I told him I'm going on Medicaid & I'm actually a little stressed about it..."Will you still be my dr? (insert sad eyes here)" He said 'why?' i said people are always talking about drs not wanting to see medicaid patients...He just looked at me & said, 'Libby, you're stuck with me & Dr P (neurologist) forever'...phew...he is a nice guy. As I was going out, he told me & two of his nurses that if I need any help getting anything, let them know....awwww...I have to call there tomorrow & ask him to prescribe home physical therapy for 3 days a week for at least a month...
My friend J is taking me grocery shopping next week...that's gonna be fun. She's at the Bob Seger concert in C'bus...she's turned into the biggest concert freak lately, she was just at Bon Jovi a couple wks ago. I love it...she's always got good pictures!
So last night I read on my nieces' FB's that Bro & my nephew were out on their dirtbikes storm chasing...now you see why we always got along so well, that's the kind of shit that I would've done...he's 57, I just realized that. That makes me happy for him~!
http://www.wimp.com/playingotter/ ...that video is one of the funniest I've seen!
My aide that's here for like an hour a day 5 times a week is nice...I'm probably gonna get her in trouble if she ever takes any of my hints & tries them....she was telling me that she & her husband were drinking last weekend, and they were wrestling [I covered my ears & said "TMI!!"]...and I said she should get him some night when they'd been drinking after he fell asleep, I said if she ever got totally mad (she wont, they are great together, & still 23-ish!), I told her to shave an eyebrow..not both...just make him a unabrow...& if she was really mad, get a big black marker & draw a mustache on him...& get pictures!!! That's not horrible...actually when they were having this wrestling match, he pinned her & licked her whole face!! THAT is way worse! They have a kitten about 2 months old, & it's gotten lost in their apartment a few times once was when their 3yr old put her in a drawer...:-/ Then last week she jumped in the refrigerator, & was asleep in a shelf when they opened it next time!
Okay, I think I oughtta go try to get some sleep...g'nite!

Sunday nite!

Did everyone have a good weekend? Even though the rapture didn't happen as promised...sorry, that was just my uncalled for smartass mouth...speaking of being a smartass, I'm hearing the Joy Behar show in the background...she's interviewing Chaz Bono, whom I admire for all the shit he's gone through getting to this point in his life...anyway, Joy was asking him about what's different now (after the sex change operation), Chaz says "I'm more gadget-oriented now...) I'm assuming that means tools & stuff, but ...well, you KNOW what I thought, & I'm sitting here laughing my ass off!! Oh, holy shit! How in the world could Joy Behar look down on anybody and say anybody is a dummy?? She just now asked if maybe he could get prostrate cancer now...OMG...
So, my first x-husband emailed me a note on Mother's Day, telling me thanks for being the mom that Tiffany needed, & he's sorry the way shit went, but...that really was a nice thing to do!
My friends from high school took me out to party Saturday night, we went to the big Mexican restaurant, then to the game room place, then to a bar downtown...the bar's kinda in a rougher part of town....but it's really nice inside. As soon as we went in & got tables, two women came over & said hi, and that was two other girls from our high school (class of '83!) fun stuff!

the week after mother's day...









I hope everyone had a good mother's day!





I did! Tif & Mr Tif brought my grandson over around 11 am and she got me a couple shirts, & I got her a hanging basket for their front porch. We put it down on the bench in front of the couch, & little Mr T promptly made it his job to 'de-flower' it!!


Man, I'm loving the fact that it's not cold or rainy (right now)...give it a few minutes, & it might be...

This video is the BEST!!




I'm getting a little better physically...well, a little bit stronger, but my legs are weak enough that I havent been able to walk, yet, but I still have that as my main goal. Anyway, my insurance isn't coming through for me to go to the nursing home for 'rehab', so I want to see if they'll just cover the home health pt, which would be fine with me...

public enemy #1 killed...check...what's next?

Now...how lame is this?? We all thought he was crouched down hiding in a cave from us, when, in fact, he was living in a 3 story mansion in Pakistan...

From: Bin Laden, Osama [mailto:osama@taliban.com]Sent: Monday, November 19, 2001 8:17 AMTo: CavematesSubject: The Cave
Hi guys. We've all been putting in long hours but we've really come together as a group and I love that. Big thanks to Omar for putting up the poster that says "There is no I in team" as well as the one that says "Hang In There, Baby." That cat is hilarious. However, while we are fighting a jihad, we can't forget to take care of the cave. And frankly I have a few concerns.
First of all, while it's good to be concerned about cruise missiles, we should be even more concerned about the scorpions in our cave. Hey, you don't want to be stung and neither do I, so we need to sweep the cave daily. I've posted a sign-up sheet near the main cave opening.
Second, it's not often I make a video address but when I do, I'm trying to scare the most powerful country on earth, okay? That means that while we're taping, please do not ride your razor scooter in the background. Just while we're taping. Thanks.
Third point, and this is a touchy one. As you know, by edict, we're not supposed to shave our beards. But I need everyone to just think hygiene, especially after mealtime. We're all in this together.
Fourth: food. I bought a box of Cheez-Its recently, clearly wrote "Osama" on the front, and put it on the top shelf. Today, my Cheez-Its were gone. Consideration. That's all I'm saying.
Finally, we've heard that there may be American soldiers in disguise trying to infiltrate our ranks. I want to set up patrols ok for them. First patrol will be Omar, Muhammed, Abdul, Akbar, and Richard.
Love you lots.
Osama


Yeah...now this is funny as hell!!
I just want to say congratulations to Barack Obama on making the call for our Navy Seals to take this turd out! I'm sure that has been the hardest decision he's made as commander-in-chief. But, I think that one decision that he made to let the guys do the job they've trained for for years, has been his best one ever. Still don't agree with his politics, but, I'm happy he found the nuts to do this...

funny stuff now in my life...yes, seek & you WILL find it!! really!

...yes, I'm an unofficial member of the 'Center For The Easily Amused'! But I've worked harder than most people would ever understand, to join it...go me!! lol!
Marci called me from Fostoria last night, & wow, it was so neat to talk to her~! She was the girl that got hired at the store up there a few months after I transferred there...we pretty much circled each other like cats for a while, it was kinda like "dislike on first sight"...cuz I was about 22...she was a bouncy cheerleader just out of high school..& couldn't start until after the Whitesnake/Great White concert she had tickets for...OMG, you talk about being jealous...! We both went separately to the store manager (who was more of a friend/drinking buddy/etc to everyone there than a boss...he was REALLY HOT...but married...) I referred to the manager that he was lured in to hire her cuz she was a little teenybopper...Marci told him I was a skinny blond bitch...promising start for two coworkers, huh? Geez, now that I think about it, the manager was really in an awful position, wasnt he? But Marci & I handled it like the adults we were...After work one day I asked her to go to the bar for a beer with me...And we've been great friends ever since!! Remember, this was mid-80's...and Tif was 2, Marci had a daughter years later, in the 90's! And she's done parenthood like me...that's her only kid~!! And I'm facebook friends with both of 'em...her daughter's in college for law enforcement, & had a video posted of her getting 'tazed' on her page... OMG, that was so funny! It was at the police station, for school!! So, in the conversation last night, I kinda had trouble talking clearly (ms symptom..tripping over the words, ya know? Well,no, most of you don't, but X does, he's heard me do that, & any friends with ms do...)...anyway, I was trying to say a word, & couldnt translate it from my brain to my tongue...so I slipped into "cuss like a sailor mode", & said shit! all of a sudden, Marce cracked up, & said "you had NO problem with that word!" She is a hoot!!
Okay, I hafta ask...is anyone but me going to watch the royal wedding? Coverage starts at 4 am...I'm watching it in tribute to my Mom...she got up at 4 am in July 1981 to watch Charles & Diana's wedding, & I made fun of her for it, but this one is going to be neat...because it's not a couple that are marrying for any reason but the fact that they are in love! Mom always loved London, the 2 times I went with Mom & Dad, we went to Selfridge's department store a LOT! Hey, wouldnt it be neat if Kate's sister, Pippa & Prince Harry fell in love & got married someday? Oh, Lord...now I really AM sounding old!
Okay, my cheeseburgur & candybars are calling! I had an iv of steroids today, Dr prescribed them one day of 1000mg a month, saying it was called the pulse system.

funny stuff from 20+ years ago









...that's my signature, you know? lol!


I remember when I had my last produce manager job at the store they just built here in town. It was like, the perfect job, and it was about 5 minutes from my house! They were still building the store as all of us were getting hired. That was one of the best times in the world...the big bosses from Lima & Wapakoneta (hah...bet you never even knew there was a town named that in Ohio, didja?), & the company's owner were there every day, meeting everyone, and getting ideas for what to put here, & there...and now I know exactly why you'll never see a clock up on the wall by the registers. It was mentioned at one of the earlier meetings, and the human resources guy said no, you don't want customers watching the clock to see how long they're waiting in line. Makes sense...I never would've thought of that!


So, we all got settled in & familiar with the place, & comfy with each other enough so that we knew who to pick on, & who to leave alone...our lunch room/breakroom was upstairs. All of us who worked in produce were hanging out, taking lunch, then one of the guys pointed out the playmate cooler sitting there, & I told him it was one of the guys' who worked there's lunchbox...*evil grin*. He went over & picked it up, and stood on a chair & moved one of the ceiling tiles, put the cooler up in the ceiling, & our work was done! And it was impossible to keep a straight face when we heard him thundering through the store yelling death threats to whoever stole his lunch! And then he busted through the swinging doors to our back room...One look at him, and I just started laughing, then I made the guy that put it up there take Scotty upstairs & show him where it was!! Me? Are you crazy? I didn't hide it!

stupid stuff...







yup...this is definitely the post for this title!!


I've just been sitting around remembering stuff that we did to each other at work 20-some years ago, that made everybody die laughing...Like the time that I was mopping the floor in my produce aisle. The acting store manager, Mark, rounded the corner in a hurry to get something, and WUMP!, he went down...so I did the only natural thing to do...went over & grabbed the p.a. & announced "Mark down in produce!"


Then almost every weekend we all went out drinking, we all HAD to stop at the Dairy-Mart on the way back to my date's mom & dad's house so we could all get chips & junk food. And, of course, the guy I was with was the guy that thought he could do everything. Hmph...So I can't even imagine the fear those clerks felt when they saw us coming...7 or 8 drunk-ass fools! John always made a beeline for the place you make your own nachos, & made a huge plate then he'd grab a can of pop & a couple candy bars, like the rest of us...the difference was, the rest of us would pay right away, John would start eating right then...! We'd all bitch him out, but he'd say I won't get in trouble unless I leave...

randoms again...after all, what's more random than politics, now?










ahahahaha....I LOVE the radio guy, Mancow! Even when he says something mean about a Republican, it's still funny...I like John Boehner...but I can't keep a straight face when I hear someone call him "Weeper of the House" or Mancow just referred to him as "Boo-Hoo Boehner"! Yes, usually the news has been anything BUT good lately, but if you hear everything with an offbeat sense of humor, well...it's fun, anyway.

And I can't help but feel that Obama is misleading people when he says the highest income earners in America shouldn't get the extended 'Bush-era tax cuts'. Which, by the way, go to the families that have an income of $250,000 +...not the "MILLIONAIRES & BILLIONAIRES", that he kept emphasizing in his "first campaign speech for the 2012 election". You have to realize the difference between a 'quarter of a million' & a million...he's either trying to talk down to all of us & make us feel stupid...or (an even worse idea), he's actually that stupid, & he's our president:-/

And, no, I don't know who I want for our next president in 2012...but I'm halfway there...I know who I don't want...
