As the new year approaches I have been thinking alot to myself what that means for me. The New Year is supposed to represent a clean start ( so we would like to think) but I wonder how many out there are haunted by past events. When I think about my past, there are so many things that I could have done differently. But then if I had done them differently would I be where I am and have what I have today. I think that this year has been a bit monumental for me. I have become a stronger person that I ever thought I could me. I have learned to stand up for myself, and I have learned how to be more loving towards my husband. Not that I wasn't loving, I just went into a bit of a nagging spell.
But it isn't just this year I reflect upon. I thought back to different times in my life that had major impacts on me, not all good, and the emotions come flooding back. I wonder, if every year is a clean start, why do things that happened 7 years ago still hurt when I think about them. I guess it's probably the same reason that I smile when I think about the wonderful things that have happened in my life.
2007 is going to be a major year for us, we are welcoming a new child into the world, and even though that hasn't happened yet, I smile and shed a happy tear.
I like the fact that I feel and I don't forget. It makes me who I am.
Happy New Year Everyone! I will see you again in 2007!

YOU HAVE TO TELL SANTA TO STRIP....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

Naveed Sattar, professor of metabolic medicine at the University of Glasgow, said that oversized clothing should have obesity help line numbers sewn on them to try to reduce Britain's obesity crisis.
The professor made the recommendations in this week's issue of the British Medical Journal." Sir George Albert, the U.K.'s national director for emergency care, joined other health professionals in their recommendations. He wants the government to take a more proactive response to obesity.
The suggestion would be to put the label on all clothes with waist sizes over 37 inches for boys or 31 inches for girls. Women's clothes over size 16 would also get a label. "

Origins of its name - The common name of the plant is derived from the ancient belief that mistletoe was propagated from bird droppings. This belief was related to the then-accepted principle that life could spring spontaneously from dung. It was observed in ancient times that mistletoe would often appear on a branch or twig where birds had left droppings. "Mistel" is the Anglo-Saxon word for "dung," and "tan" is the word for "twig". So, mistletoe means "dung-on-a-twig".

So what's up with this post?
I am talking about the Terrorist Surveillance Program. I am talking about the government tapping my phone and listening in on my calls to see if I am plotting some national terrorist attack. What right does the government have to listen in on my phone calls. I am a blond hair blue eyed all american chick. I have rights that need to be protected.....I have rights that need to be protected...I have rights that need to be protected. AHHHH I get it now. The government has every right to tap my freaking phone!!! I have nothing to hide. And I don't think there are a bunch ofnational security guys sitting on the other end getting off listening to me and Ang talking about our periods.. me not concieving yet and how I should take my temperature down there to make for better fertility... oh and how our husbands don't vacuum the house right and what a stinky diaper Ty just had while I was changing him and talking at the same time, her calling the dog into the house and making sure her daughter Layla is happy with her apple juice and coloring books.
On On August 17, 2006, U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor correctly ruled the program unconstitutional and illegal. (Yeah I'm a little late here) but it pisses me off. I don't want another world trade center. I don't want another call from my Aunt telling us that our Uncle was in the World Trade Center...crying on the other end. I don't want to be waiting all day to find out if my friend that worked in the Pentegon was safe. I don't want them calling my brother telling him that he is being called up for active duty to fight another war when one isn't finished yet.
Here is the article that prompted me to write this post.
So wire tap me when I call Germany... You won't hear much, but I sure will feel alot safer.

Hubby and I were in the car over the weekend and Clay Aiken's Christmas song came on and we were saying how he grew so much in the American Idol competition. Hubby made the remark that he doesn't understand if he is gay, why he just doesn't come out and say he was gay. In an interview with Diane Sawyer Clay responded to the question"
"I don't understand why you want to know," Aiken shot back. "I don't understand why it's any of your business.
"At some point, [the question] becomes just really rude, you know?" he said in an interview that aired Thursday on "Good Morning America."
Sawyer went right after Aiken, asking at the top of the interview if he was "ready to come out and say you're gay."
"That would not make sense for me do to that," Aiken said.
"I've gotten to a point where I feel it's invasive. Forget it. What I do in my private life is nobody's business anymore, period.
Is he right? Being a public figure, is it right to keep your sexuality a secret? The amount of stars this year feeling the pressure have caved in and come out of the closet. It gets to a point where there is so much speculation it consumes their public life and more than likely effects their work. Clay Aiken so far though since the Internet incident, has kept his sexuality a secret. I wonder at this point is it more detrimental to his career. I remember hearing news that a Church ended up canceling a concert they scheduled with Clay b/c of the speculation that he was gay. Nice of a church to discriminate, huh? But back to te original question...why should he come out? He is a performer, that is his employment.. we don't go to the grocery store and say to the clerk "before you ring me up, I need to know your sexual preference!" Why should it be any different for Aiken? I hope that he stands his ground, and I hope that even if he did come out with a partner, he still wouldn't answer the question and hopefully it won't have an adverse impact on his career. He is an upstanding guy that has always been religious, has always helped his community, donated and volunteered for charities and has been a huge mentor to our children. His sexuality should overshadow that.

In today's news I read the following:
Oregon senator makes emotional break with Bush over Iraq war
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican Sen. Gordon Smith of Oregon made a dramatic break with President Bush on the Iraq war Thursday night, telling colleagues in an emotional speech on the Senate floor that he can no longer support a "lamentable" U.S. policy that has "failed."
Smith, a moderate who until now has been a supporter of the war, said he was at "the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way, being blown up by the same bombs, day after day."
"That is absurd," Smith said. "It may even be criminal." Smith said while he doesn't believe Bush intentionally lied to get the United States into the war, he now thinks that "we have paid a price in blood and treasure that is beyond calculation" for a war waged due to bad intelligence. (Posted 10:05 p.m.)
While there are Iraq and Bush supporters, I feel that the sentiment through out America leans towards Anti Bush and Anti Iraq..pull our troops out! But I wonder, would that be a mistake? The first time we entered Iraq we pulled out way to early and left shambles( 11.5 months), this time would it be even more detrimental to do so. However, the war in Iraq officially began March 30, 2003. That is a long time. But then again, you have to consider this fact, Vietam lasted 8 years, Afganistan 5 yrs and counting, World War II 3 yrs 8mos, Korean war 3 yrs. So is time what it takes to get the job done? For the family members at home...It's a leader that gets the job done...for the troops over seas...it's a leader that gets the job done... and as we can see in the above article, for the politicians...it's a leader that gets the job done!
Thoughts please, especially outsider veiws from other countries.
RWA in the comments section stated "You do not hear the stories about the groups of people who come running to them, thanking them for getting them out from under Saddam's dictatorship." - Of course not...that would make for boring news..
So I post this picture for you that my brother took while in Iraq!
Cute little kid waving to the soldiers...huh!
Plus....I got the best freaking Christmas gifts ever for everyone this year!! HA HA HA HO HO HO!

Funny thing about the chick that hacked our accounts last year. When I called, the retailers wouldn't tell me the shipping address. They could charge my accounts, but not tell me what I ordered and where it was going. Nice. So I tracked the bitch down and let her have a piece of my mind. Luckily, we only ended up losing $50, but compared to a couple thousand that she wracked up...I was grateful!

Bit of the article:
"There comes a time in a flowering plant’s life when it must learn about the birds and the bees, involve them in its sex life and produce a beautiful blossom. One plant sprouts a 60-plus-inch phallus, heats up, stinks like a corpse, does its best to attract carrion beetles and flesh flies and, after three pungent days of sexual activity, goes limp."
Apparently it takes 8 years to raise one of these bad boys! Go here to read the full article. I hope this clears the air ya'll...but not if a penis flower is near!

I wouldn't say that was completely accurate.... But atleast I did get my website. So lets try my maiden name:
And you get a response to an article I wrote in college about chain reaction racism.

Shopping, Saturday, had to pee like a mo fo! So we went into Best Buy so Hubby could stare at all the 56 inch televisions we were not going to buy, and I could use the toilet. I walk into the bathroom and there is some best buy employee teen talking on her cell phone. I wasn't sure if she was trying to hide, but I had to pee. On my way back to the stall I hear her talking "Yes, I will be by this afternoon Mr. so and so to fill out the paperwork" immediately this did not sound like an unimportant phone call. So there I was, peeing, very loudly in an echoing bathroom, she is still talking with no signs of letting up. I wasn't going to stop my routine b/c her dumbass couldn't find a better place to talk than in a public bathroom. I know he hear the WOOOOOOSH! It was not quite at all, and just to rub it in a bit I took my time washing my hands. It was the least I could do, since someone had the pleasure of listening to me pee!

I hope everyone this year takes a look around and realizes the simple things in life are the ones we should thank God for. I never thought that I would be 29 and finally settled down, with a home and a family and for once, stability. I know who I am, I finally love who I am, I am thankful for everything.

She almost died this summer. And still I haven't been able to bring myself to reach out to her. How do two people so close, grow so very far apart? Maybe it wasn't she that changed, maybe it was me. Maybe that is what I dislike so much. I have grown up. So if I call her now, what do I say?

Over the weekend, Micheal Richards,(Kramer from Seinfeld) performed at LA's Laugh Factory. I absolutely love that club. We had a blast there 2 years ago. Anyhoo...when you go to a comedy show, normally the audience is allowed to heckle and join in on the fun. Well, when an audience member did so, Mr. Richards spewed out a slew of hate words and insinuations towards the the audience member. Including using the "N" words more than 20 times in his less than 3 minute tyraid. Audience members were disgusted and left the show. Mr. Richards also left the stage. Now I know I love going to comedy shows. But when was it "okay" to become racially belligerent and obscene in the name of comedy. I have been to shows were the language just takes away from the act and it is no longer funny. It is awful when comedians make slurs about their own race, and awful when they make fun of others. Even sexual orientation or about women and sex. I paid for my parents to go to a comedy club last year for Christmas, and my mother said it was sweet of us, but that the language by the comedian was grotesque. Should we start giving the shows ratings, instead of PG we have "NR" for no racial slurs or "NB" not a bigot and I don't even want to touch the rating if they do...has it really come to that?

Wow...OJ Simpson... I always knew that he got away with murder. Then with the law suit, never paying a dime, got away with murder twice. Now OJ pulls a "nanny nanny boo boo" you can't catch me move! Writing a book "If I Did It" a 'hypothetical' account of how he would of committed the murders of Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson. It's the closest to a confession of murder I think we will ever get out of him and on top of it, he is getting paid millions. Murder for Profit. This is complete devastation to the families of the victims. But I worry what kind of message this is sending. Fox is actually going to air a special from OJ that is more of a promotion for the new book coming out. I am sure billions will tune in. I haven't decided if I will or not. I can't ever see myself purchasing the book b/c that is like paying him for the crime. But I wonder if I would succumb to the morbid curiosity of the TV Special. Something tells me I won't. I just can't believe that he can get away with something like this.
What is going on today?

This is one of the most disturbing things I have seen in a long time. I am not sure what exactly took place to make this happen in the first place, but the escalation of the entire incident. This student's mother must be beside herself. I would like to hear your thoughts...

So is that wrong of me to do that??? I explained where I bought it from, what my reserve was and did not offer a certificate. I kinda feel bad, but then again I don't. I know the thing is real. Hubby is just a stickler for those types of things. I ended up putting an old engagement ring on ebay too. I have 8 watchers but no takers yet. It is a great price for the ring. 1/2 carat for $350..put it in a new setting and you have a new ring. A really pretty one too. I am not going to wear it.
I wonder what else I could put on ebay. I think we should all come up with some ridiculous item to sell...like "our dirty little secret" and see how much we could fetch for it. Maybe someone will buy my doggy bitten shoes???? What do you think we should sell?

I can hardly wait for this invention to become available. I would love to send it as a gift to my Canadian and German friends, and my favorite cousing out in Cali. It is the new Hug Shirt. It has sensors and is activated by a phone call.
It warms up and sends all the signals of a long distance hug from a friend. This thing is a must have for me!
Go to The Hug Shirt to learn more about it!

I don't know what it is about Starbux coffee. I have a cappacino/expresso maker at home. I am quite good at making a latte, cap or mocha. Oh the frothy goodness! Warms my tummy to the core. So if I am so good at it, why do I pay $4 every other day for this yummy treat. As I was sitting in the line of 15 cars ahead of me, I thought, "It has to be to save time"! I am only fooling myself here. Waiting in a Sbux line takes forever and I am almost never on time for work when I do. The only reason my son sits through it is the anticipation of a promised doughnut. His mouth waters just as much at mine when you approach and start to hear the roaring sounds of the frother and you get a wif of the fresh coffee aroma from perking fresh coffee beans picked by hand from the Himalayas. I calculate that I buy Sbux 3 to 4 times a week. That runs me $468 to $624 a year. When you think about that in coffee beans, that's alot of coffee beans. So why do I do it? The answer is simple....I can't make croissants...ya gotta have a coissant to go with your $4 cup of coffee...right?
Or is it pure laziness? I will never cop to that!

Name 13 Random facts about myself...Here goes.
I love burnt pepperoni
I love taking all the marshmallows out of my lucky charms, putting them in a pile and eating them.
I used to be a size 9 (no really, I have the dress in my closet to prove it to my children one day)
I dream about either my poetry or my childrens book being published one day
I can't shower in a dirty bathroom
Speaking of bathrooms, I will not go #2 in a public one
I secretly wish that for one day I could be completly selfish with no ramifications
I dabbled in a few hallucinagens when I was younger
I used to think that I knew how love felt, until I met my hubby...that was the first time anyone had ever loved me...for me
Sometimes I dwell in the past too much
I hate my feet, even pedicured, I can't stand them
I can sing, like really well, sometimes I think I could make it in the finals on American Idol.
I graduated with a bachlors in English and can't spell worth a shit!
SO I decided that this year for Christmas I would go to my mother's on the Eve and come home with hubby and child that night to wake up Christmas morning, just the three of us, no pressure, on the 1st Christmas morning in our new home. Sweet, Personal, Simple,.....peace. ...finally....
Well now my mother is crushed that she is not coming over Christmas Eve to spend the night and see her grandson open gifts in the morning..........b..a...h..u..m..b..u..g! What do I do?

I really thought that this policy was stupid...am I the only one? I think Target just lost my business.
attacks in this
thread when Ellie asks if I would like to be a guest poster. Since she
and her husband are spending most of their time lately getting
it on, I thought that was the least I could do to help out. Ellie, if
you conceive on the day when you post this instead of writing yourself, you
owe me (just kidding).
Kids. I don't have any myself. I've never been married, and I've never been
in a relationship close to serious enough to even discuss marriage, let
alone kids. But, I like kids. My brother has a five-year-old little boy, and
his aging uncle is usually exhausted, bumped and bruised after playing
together. I spend entirely too much money on him (according to my mother) on
stuff that my sister-in-law despises. But, hey, it's better than spending my
money at the bar - and I'm not the one who has to listen to the noise and
have the things scratching up my furniture and my shins. My nephew
loves the toys that his uncle buys him, and that's what matters. It's
I was glad my nephew came along. I am 39 years old and 16 months older than
my brother. Until my nephew's arrival, I was the one always catching grief
from my mother and other relatives about producing a grandchild. Never mind
that I wasn't married - or that my brother was. I was the oldest, so I guess
they assumed it was my responsibility. I suppose I could have shown up at a
family reunion and said, "Hey, there's a new kid on the way," then watched
all of their faces when their minds started racing and wondering if I had
gotten married without them knowing it. I could have made it even better by
telling them the mother was a stripper. My mother probably wouldn't have
been too happy with that, especially if some aging uncle or aunt had fainted
or had something more serious happen. I did take a Hooters waitress as my
date to a work-related banquet once - but that's for another time.
Next up is dealing with babysitting. I wouldn't mind, but I established a
few criteria when my nephew was born, and I am sticking to them. They
include the following:
1. He must be able to go to the bathroom by himself. He is getting
close to this point, but not quite (getting pants back up and buttoned
properly apparently is a challenge from time to time). (edit from ellie-if you don't have carpeting and you do have a mop...let him run around naked!)
2. He must be able to feed himself. He can handle this, for the most
part, so we would be cool going to McDonald's - or Hooters (I'm sure my
sister-in-law would love that too). (edit from ellie- Hey I'd take my kid to Hooter's...sounds like a weekend plan!)
3. He must be able to bathe himself. I don't bathe kids - especially
those that aren't mine. Something just doesn't seem right about that. (Edit from ellie-let the dog lick him clean...okay okay that might not be a good idea)
So, my mother is happy (at least not complaining as much), and life goes on.
Maybe one day, I'll have kids of my own. Until then, I'll just spoil my
Thanks for the time and the space, Ellie

I always am the last one to hear about these things, but there I was, sitting on my couch playing online scrabble (rather losing) when the news caster is mumbling this or that about John Kerry. I look up when I see the clip of his speech the other day and hear the following :
"Education…if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
What happened to you asshole? Why did YOU end up in a war? Were you too stupid to do anything else with your life? It's not like you will run for president one day...oops you did run...YOU JUST LOST!!! I guess you are just bitter, a sore loser, what ever you want to call it. While G. W might not be the greatest president in history..he would never call his military ignorant! Senetor John Kerry, you have greatly offended me. My brother went to war for your freedom, he spent his 22st birthday preparing to fight a war in Iraq. He faced possible chemical war-fare, the death of his comrads, the possible loss of his own life. He missed my wedding and the birth of his 1st nephew then his christening. He missed Thanksgiving, instead he had sand in his mouth from non-stop windstorms. His face, lips and hands cracked and bled and his body shivered in the cold darkness of the dessert while you slept safe and sound in your bed with your entire family on Christmas Eve. I am deeply saddened by your remarks and pray that the Democratic party no longer stands behind your blind ambitions. I never thought this before, but you Mr. Kerry SUCK!

Cut out caffine: Try switching to a milkshakes which will boost your calcium as well and assist in conception. (how will a milkshake assist in conception)
Also, try stress management techniques, such as yoga and meditation, which research suggests can also help in getting pregnant.
Buy something sexy: Some experts say that if a woman is highly aroused while she's having sex, the sperm has a better chance of fertilizing her egg. Other researchers don't agree. (this helps how)
The woman can try elevating her hips with a pillow so her cervix is exposed to the maximum amount of semen. (then they suggest laying there elevated for 30 minutes after sex, eeew!)
Make your vaginal environment as sperm-friendly as possible. (okay, I'll buy it some roses and give her a little sweet talk, maybe if she's good I'll take her out for dinner) WTF???
What happened to the good ole' fashioned..getting it on and getting pregnant. Why does this seem like such work, ovulation strips, a bbt thermometer, ovulation calender, positions...the list goes on.
This is not going to turn into a mommy blog....I promise...or a I wanna get preggers thing either, I just thought I would share some of the stupid shit out there to get women's hopes up. For me and hubby...the good ole fashioned getting it on, will have to do for now.

I will be up bright and early at 5 am tomorrow morning. Hubby, Son and I are going to participate in the Susan G. Komen race for the cure. Cancer has deeply effected my family on so many levels. We have suffered loss as well as triumphed through recoveries. I race to not only protect my future, but I race to honor those who can no longer fight, because I never veiw it as lost battle. Please keep me and my family in your thoughts tomorrow, as well as the millions that will be walking beside me and the millions looking down cheering us on from heaven.
If you would like to donate, my link is on my side bar.

So there I was in good ole' Walmart minding my own business and this annoying redneck is blabbing into her phone, being sure to be as loud as she can so everyone can here, "You know what I got in my cart???" She repeats that twice so of course I had to look and I beheld the must get of the season, a stack of Tickle Me Elmo TMX's. I know the bitch didn't have that many kids, but that was before they posted the 2 elmo limit sign! So of course, I had to see what the fuss was about and headed over to the toy aisle. All alone was one golden elmo. When I picked up the box it started to giggle and tell me how tickley it was in there. At that moment, my son grabbed the box and held on for dear life. So I though, find a price scanner, if it isn't too much I'll buy it. After my endless search to no avail, This lady comes running after me "MAAM, exuse me MAAM!!" I am only 29, so I KNOW she wasn't talking to me, then I hear "MAAM>>MAAM! Did you get that here", no dummy, I let my kid bring an unopened elmo in the store so he could play with the box, "yes, but I got the last one." her reply, " Do you want it? I have a daughter that wants one so badly?" ugg now you have graduated from dummy to , dumbass #*^%^*! Can you not see the kid holding the damn thing? "I think we will be buying it", her reply, "well if you decided not to, please come find me in the toy aisle, I will be hunting for another one" Sure I will, I've seen these things on ebay, I tell ya what, you give me $100 and I will let you buy it from me before you buy it from Walmart!
Then when I brought the thing home, the adults had more fun with it than my son did. If you have see what it does, you would understand
Here is what elmo does! TICKLE ME ELMO
