And if that doesn't make any sense to you....

New Litter Box

My cats are crazy.

I have bought them a sand box for their potty.

Ok, it just looks like a sandbox...it isn't really that big..

Well, maybe it is.

It was described as X-Large on the box. So it is pretty big. It is much better than a big and a small one that we had in that room before.

My cats are very finicky about where they go potty. Well two of them are. And yes, I'm the crazy cat lady. 

And of course, two minutes after I filled the new box with fresh litter, one of them was in it...initiating the thing.

God job, Midnight...you know what the box is for...tis a shame he doesn't know how to bury his pooh!

Commercials I Just Don't Get

I'm creeped out by all those ED commercials but especially the one with the couple in bathtubs on the roof of an apartment building.

Now I know in large cities there are pools etc on the roof. How that works is something that baffles me, the same way the pools on the third floor of hotels baffles me. But back to the crazy ass commercial. The couple aren't in the same tub, which is what you'd figure if you are going to be "getting it on" thanks to some ED med..right?


They are in his and hers bathtubs, HOLDING HANDS!


Who was the brains behind this ad? Because really..IT MAKES NO SENSE...I also want to know what guy is going to take this drug and then go to the opera with his wife and then jump in the rooftop tub?

My brain hurts thinking about this commercial.

Thank God Tomorrow's Friday

This has been one of the longest week's ever.

I need some time off to chill...

Not that I'll get that..but still, it is good to dream.

If only I could get some sleep to go with the time off...but dad has bloodwork to get done on Saturday...and church at 9 on Sunday...

It never ends...

No rest for me..

Oh and tomorrow I have to take my sister to work again. Stupid car!

You Know You're Getting Old

~ When you spend most of the day complaining about aches and pains.

No joke, that was me today. My freaking ankles hurt...and then my knees.


I don't know what in the hell is wrong with me, but I feel some tylenol PMs coming to me in the near future. You know so I can have beautiful dreams. (Hopefully not nightmares)

Oh wait...damn..there's no PM in the house.


Now I get to be achy and probably sleepless.

Oh and I have to take my sister to her job tomorrow as her car is broke down.

I feel a fantastic Thursday coming on...

Song Of The Day

I Feel The Earth Move

I felt the quake at my office, but I think Bilbo will have a better account of it...since he was closer to the epicenter.

This Just In

Today was my bloggerversary! OMG I totally forgot. I've been blogging since 2002.

9 years!

Yikes! That's a lot of time.

So much has happened since then too...

I've had a few to many jobs...

A lot of pets have come and gone...

Even a few crushes...

My grandmother passed away..

I've gone through 2 cars and acquired my first ever car payment.

Where has the time gone?

Sleeping My Troubles Away

Needless to say work has been weighing heavily on my mind. My sister has some bad stuff going on, so we decided to drown our problems in booze yesterday.

Peach Schnapps + Cherry Vodka = Me happily asleep for a good long time.

Allow me to explain my how I get when I have a few.

1. warm fuzzies

2. giggles and lots of them.

3. deep dreamless sleep.

It didn't take that long..but then again I had three of those Cherry Peachtree mixers..

Hence no blogging yesterday! LOL!

Anxiety I Has It

There are some things going on at work right now that are making me very uneasy. It has been a long time since I felt this way at work. Of course it isn't something I can talk about online either.

So I have to sit around and think about it.

Possibly til my head explodes. Which at the rate I'm going will be sometime tomorrow morning.

Rushing Things

Retail never ceases to amaze me.

It is only the middle of August and the holidays are creeping into the stores. Yesterday at Giant Eagle I saw Peppermint Mocha creamer and Pumpkin Spice creamer in the dairy aisle. These are usually limited editions that only come out for a few months from Oct through Jan.

Uh really, it's August, I am not ready for pumpkin.

Oh and Giant Eagle's going further...pumpkin cookies and pumpkin roll in the bakery.


It is not time for freaking PUMPKIN!

But apparently the memo didn't go out on that....because Bath and Body Works are rolling out their pumpkin scented anti-bacterial soaps now.

Really? Its time?

C'mon people, the kids haven't even gone back to school!!!!

I guess I better start thinking about the Christmas Mix CD...because they've obviously moved up the holidays since last year.

A Buying Binge

For some reason I've been on a makeup buying binge. Bilbo and Mike will not understand this phenomenon. But once every year, I have a tendency to run out to the drug store and come home with a new stash of war paint. (As my dad likes to call it)

I guess since I'm focusing a lot of my weight again, I need something else to make me feel pretty.

No I don't feel pretty, I feel like a moo cow.

So I'm trying to compensate in other areas.

So yeah...I have loads of new lipsticks and shadows and blushes in my vanity.

All the better to give you guys kisses and longing looks with!

Random Thoughts

~ The Duchess Of Cambridge is 5'10 and weighs 105 lbs...will someone please force feed this woman a cheeseburger?

~ Sarris chocolate bars are the greatest.

~ Anytime I try to get ahead of myself, I end up far behind.

~ Listening to children's music is like a bad acid trip, especially when I have to review an album and must listen to something repeatedly. You start seeing bright lights and pretty colors and talking in jibberish. It is almost as good as getting a good drink on.

~ Barnes and Noble is my crack..nuff said. Damn them for their 50% off sale. Oh and I'm not a hoarder..I'm a collecter!! HA! Take that Mike!

~ Tried to get my financial aid for the Y done today to no avail. Have I mention when I try to be on top of things, I fail miserably?

~ 8 hours sleep is a blissful thing that I never get.

~ Dad's blood count was 10.5 from the draw on Saturday. Not great, but better than it has been.

~ I need a mental health day...NOW!

Stupid Stuff

~ Found the cookbook with the nutroll recipe that I want to use for the holidays this year. Am I crazy? Yes, but I want to be able to make this once before I subject it on friends and family.

~ I plan on getting the Christmas mix CD done early this year...which means I'd like to be able to send them out at Thanksgiving instead of two weeks before the holiday.

~ I am totally ashamed of our house. It is a mess, there's too many of us living here and not enough space. Our house was build around 1900, and the closets are only about 8 inches deep. There are no kitchen cabinets. Need I go on? I need to get the walls washed down, but the stuff I need to move things requires more than just myself. Plus the other stuff we need requires money we don't have.

I fear the priest showing up to visit our family one day and seeing this hovel. I love our new priest. Father Jerry is one of the few people that I can vent to and sure he may think I'm crazy, but he listens and he doesn't judge. However....if  he saw this house he might...

We aren't hoarders either dammit!

~ big sigh!

~ I did get quite a bit accomplished this weekend even though it didn't feel like it..so golf clap for me.

Getting Nowhere Fast

The weekend is hitting the halfway point and I feel angry and frustrated with myself, even though I actually have done things this weekend. I did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, took dad for his blood work and went to Triple B Farms for the Peach Festival.

I know it sounds like I did a lot, but I feel like I did nothing useful.

I try to cram so much into 48 hours and it isn't nearly enough time.

Plus sometime in these hours, I have to go to church and make a few meals.

I'm just spinning my wheels.

I keep trying and I feel like I keep failing. I know it isn't the case, but I guess I set such high goals for myself...


I can't believe it's almost Sunday already!

Dreading Friday

Friday is one of those days that should always be awesome, but seldom is. At work, every manner of craziness ensues, so that I wish it were any day but Friday.

Then there's the business of getting my paycheck cashed.

I don't get a typical lunch break, so I'm stuck hoping I get sent to the bank by the boss or I'll have to drive 5 miles to the Rostraver PNC so I can deposit my pay.

~ big sigh ~

Then I get to come home and make supper.

Tomorrow is an easy one! It's TACO NIGHT!

If only I could get to the making of the tacos without the whole work thing.

Bargain Shopping

Peebles sent me a $10.00 gift card for my birthday. I finally got around to using it. I'm a little behind on my shopping for "ME."

You may think $10.00 can't get you much, but it can.

I was able to find a dress for $11.75 so can I get a woot for that?

It was a $59.00 dress!!!

And it fit and it didn't make me look like Bossy the Cow!

Double woot!

That was a great $10.00 gift card!

When I Sleep I Sleep

I think the whiskey caught up with me yesterday! And no! I didn't have any, but boy was I tired by 5 o'clock when I was finished putting on supper.

Then I came upstairs to work on a review, but I couldn't keep my eyes open..so I decided I'd take a short nap.

Well that short nap lasted 4 hours!

 Of course when I woke up at 2 am I couldn't easily fall back to sleep.

Apparently I had a delayed reaction from all the work I did on Saturday.

Let's hope I can stay awake today, because I have a lot to do tonight.

Weekend Recap

~ Won a raffle at the church festival. That will help with the household bills.

~ Drank Pepsi and Sierra Mist spiked with whiskey. Drank a few shots of whiskey straight...The priest informed me that I was lit and asked me when I was going to dance. (The whole bake sale booth was a bit...erm...lit)

~ Father Jerry is my new favorite priest.

~ The two kids I live with..you know the 77 and 85 year old kids? They are driving me insane.

~ The church festival was the first time I've been outside of my house for longer than 3 hours. I need to get out more often.

~ Made an awesome Apricot Pork Roast in the slow cooker, Ask and I shall share the simple recipe!

Top 5 On Friday

Top 5 things that would make concert going more pleasant.

1. Casinos would not hold out their best seats for players club members who really don't know who the artist is they are seeing perform.

2. Short people would get closer seats.

3. They wouldn't serve people that were obnoxiously drunk. (I don't care what the policy may be, no venue in Pittsburgh cares how toasted you are at a show)

4. Camera policies would be removed, unless you are coming in with a huge ass camera. Most people don't take pictures to sell them...though some wankers do..Most people want to have memories and something to share with their friends.

5. Tickets wouldn't go on sale 7 months in advance for a show.

Bake Sale Stuff Done

Can I get a big woot for making a batch and a half of the Puppy Chow Chex mix for our church's festival on Saturday.

The hard part will not be eating it all before I can get it down there.

I love Chex mix!

I figure I can get 26 bags of the stuff out of 13 cups  of cereal...

If we sell it at 50 cents that would be $13.00 for the church. Not bad. Assuming we can sell the stuff.

I'd bake something, but there is no way in hell that I'm turning on an oven in this heat when we don't have central air.

I love my church, but I'm not willing to meet the big guy because I've died of heat exhaustion baking a cake.

So to any of you in the Charleroi area....stop on down on Saturday...lots of good food and fun...and buy some of my chex mix!!!

Pass out in bed.

The Song That's Stuck In My Head

I keep thinking I should be paying more attention to the lyrics of this song...then I think...NAH. However it randomly popped into my head the other day so maybe someone was trying to tell me something.

I Hate Summer

Let me clarify this..in case you've missed me bitching and moaning.

1. I hate extreme heat as much as I hate extreme cold and snow.
2. I hate shorts/tiny clothes..as I am not all that tiny.
3. I'm blind without glasses, therefore waterslides and swimming aren't much fun, because I don't do contact lenses.

When is fall going to arrive?

Oh and ...I'm freaking cranky. If you haven't guessed.

However, Elvis Costello's music is making me feel a little bit better about things!
