So There I Was

minding my own business ....shopping for crap i really didnt need.. how is it that happens.. you go in for pet food and a couple gift bags and the next thing you know you spent 200 dollars .. gah..

i digress.. there i was minding my own business buying so predators sleep pants when i turned the corner and was horrified.. looking straight at me .. SWIMSUITS...

what the fuck? over..

its JANUARY the 27th.. just barely more than a month since we all spent two months of holiday eating and now swimsuits.. hello? who else is ready to slit their wrists at this moment?... ok that is a little drastic.. but DAMN.. i am still in shock.. can you tell .. ??? whatever.. i am not killing myself to get into "swimsuit" shape.. cause well.. that would take about three years.. oh well .. just a warning to all you unsuspecting shoppers out there ..

ok so Kari got me ... GAH!

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.


wow i have to narrow it to 6.... i guess i should pick the best 6 weird things about me.. and if i leave any out i am sure some one will be glad to tell me i picked the wrong one to tell you guys

1. I have this thing about my food.. i dont like it to touch and i eat one thing at a time.. and just when i think you arent looking i actually turn my plate so the one thing i am eating is in front of me.. there is a system too .. i eat my starch first.. my vegetable next.. and the meat last..


2. i am an ok housekeeper not real meticulous but i have my yarn organized by fibre and colour.. i wish i could be this anal about my house

3. I have to always be busy.. If i am not working on a project I am on line doing something or if i am just sitting watching TV .. i am spinning my ring on my finger or twiddling with something.. i do this especially when i am sitting in a resturant and i have straw wrapper paper .. i twist it into weird shapes


4. I am ocd about my computer surfing.. when i get ready to turn off my computer i have to make sure i have no new email and no new blogs to read.. i have to check my forums to make sure there are no new posts .. and once that is established i can sign off..

5. I have this thing where i dont like doing something if i am not good at it.. and if i cant be good at something in a timely manner i give up on it.. i feel if i were meant to be good at something or i had a natual talent it shouldnt take too long to get the hang of it.. so .. if i am not immediately good at something i will quit it ..

6. believe it or not .. i dont always like being social.. *gasp* i know right? cause if you ever meet me .. i usually am non stop.. or we have non stop conversation .. but i can go days with out other human interaction and i am ok with that .. odd huh ?

so there are my 6 weird things i chose to reveal about me .. they shouldnt come as a surprise to a couple of you LOL

and i have to tag some people now

1.
burfica... i know you can come up with 6 easy LOL

2.
Opie.. cause.. well i can

3.
Marvie... cause i love you so much !

4. Kel.. cause she always has neat stuff to say

5. Lani .. if she comes down from the clouds soon enough !!

6. Stacey umm cause i liek her work LOL

Cocky baby!!...then after lunch on sunday .. my sisters fiancee's children were invited to a bowling party .. and she asked me if i wanted to come and practice.. so i did.. and that was fun too ..

yesterday i spent the day hanging with a friend.. we bowled.. my shoulder hurt today .. went to the harley shop to pick up gifts for the twins.. they will be 8 on saturday and had asked for harley gear.. and while we were there my friend kindly picked up a small coffee thermos for my saddle bag.. and a large harley mug for every morning use.. pics of that later my camera batteries died ... i bought the boys cute little matching shirts.. and of course one for me ...and yes picture later.. however its olive green thermal with tan tribal on it .. and of course cute as hell like me LOL.. man i am full of it today .. we went to dinner.. i had a couple chocolate martinis .. and then after i had a venti caramel macchiato with two extra shots.. woohooo

The Continuing Saga

Me: Hi mom.. sorry i didnt call you yesterday was trying to decide where to go

Mom: that is ok ..

Me: Lets go to Old Chicago .. surely every one can find something they like there

Mom: That is fine .. what time do you want to go .. ?

Me: Jessica ( my niece) has to work at 4.. so why dont we try 1 so she can go

Mom: that will be good.. but i think Ronnie might go to his moms and not go with us ..

*banging head on desk wondering why we even had the Tandoor discusion if Ronnie probably would go in the first place *

Me Update

For some of you this update will be cryptic at best.. i apologize in advance for this but you know there are some things in your life you just have to keep for you .. but the impact they have on you .. well you wanna share with the world..

so this weekend was one of those times.. it was amazing and fun and exciting... and showed me i could actually be selfless.. and as much as i know i could be if i wanted.. i suppose i should say i was inspired.. and it has made me want to be a better person period.. this is a good thing..

i also had a new experience this past weekend.. it was exciting.. fast.. hot and sexy *get your minds out of the gutter*... i was able to be a passenger on a v-rod instead of the driver.. it was NICE.. sadly no pictures... boohooo... maybe sometime again soon i can manage a couple


on the other hand.. the past two days have caught me sleeping lengthy periods of time and kind of down in the dumps for some unknown reason .. well i think i know what it is .. but you know its one of those things you know you have to pull yourself out of because if you dont .. well it could get ugly.. like yesterday not getting out of bed at all and not waking up til about 2.. that wasnt good.. today is shaping up a little better.. i am up .. gonna get showered.. and well gonna go get some new ink tonight..

pictures later..

have a great day every one !!

Hoppin John Foodie Friday

Hoppin John with Pork

1 lb cubed pork

1 lb hot pork sausage ( i like hot italian sausage)

1 medium onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 clove garlic, peeled and minced

1 cup to 1 1/2 cup cooked black eyed peas

1 cup to 1 1/2 cup cooked white rice

1 can red gold or rotel diced tomatoes with chilies

a little olive oil

cajun spice


in a heavy skillet brown sausage and pork cubes you can season the cubed pork with a little cajun spice if you like.... this is to seal in the juice.. you dont have to cook them thru they will be added to the other stuff later.. drain off drippings.

in a larger dutch oven type pot.. or soup pot.. heat some olive oil and sautee the onion til almost transluscent ..then add the garlic, and peppers and sautee a little bit more... then add the meat , black eyed peas, rice and tomatoes.. and a little more cajun spice to taste.. let this simmer covered for 30 minutes... if you need a little more liquid add some water or broth ...

ladle into a bowl and serve with a hard crusty roll... enjoy!!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year every one!! I really mean it.. this past year has flown by me faster than i thought ever possible..

last night found me .. low key in bed.. with a kidney infection.. not whining just stating LOL.. i rang in the new year with some cranberry juice and alot of time to reflect.. and leave you all with this simple resolution i make for myself every year .. and challenge you to take it too .. its just this

i resolve to be the best person i can be every day

and what that means is doing your best day to day.. and that will change daily.. some days my best will be a mumbling evil bitch LOL.. and some days it will be a loving giving forgiving person .. all i can do is be the best i can every day .. and make no excuses for myself in that ..

and i leave you with the best wishes for your new year.. !!!
