How Did I Miss This?

The cutest Doctor Who mini episode ever

Yes, I'm still trying to keep my Who withdrawal at a minimum.

TV Characters I Wish Were Real

I don't watch a lot of TV but the shows that I do watch, I love, and there are some characters that I really wish weren't TV characters, but real people, erm aliens.

1. The Doctor: Let's face it folks, if that mad man in a blue police box showed up on my doorstep, I'd go with him in a heart beat. I don't even care which of the 11 Doctors comes to take me away in the TARDIS.

2. Captain Jack Harkness: Uh..if you've ever watched Doctor Who or Torchwood, you'd know why...oh and please bring Ianto back...

3. The whole cast of That 70s Show. I just love how real and weird these kids and their parents are. I feel like I know them, or at least have lived part of their lives!

4. Jeff Murdock from Coupling: First of all, Moffat was brilliant when he did this show. He didn't kill anyone off! Its a shame Richard Coyle left and took that fabulous character away. I loved his goofiness. I always wanted to slip into an episode and run off with him.

5. Shawn & Gus from Psych: If you've ever watched the show, you'd know...God these guys would have to be such fun to hang out with. Plus I could sing cheesy 80s music with them!

6. Hawkeye from M.A.S.H.: I'd go to Korea to have Hawkeye flirt with me. Wouldn't mind flirting a bit with Trapper John too.

Solving The World's Problems One Angry Rant At A Time

OK, this is going to be more than one angry rant.

Do you know what's wrong with America? It isn't the man in the White House, it is the people that populate this country.

The word responsibility doesn't mean anything to some people.

You have family that needs help, but you turn your back on them, or never offer to do anything.

You have a child, but you don't realize that married or single, you are a parent every day of your life, and you don't get away from it, because your kid drives you crazy. My 87 and 79 year old kids drive me crazy, but I don't leave them because things are rough.

Everyone thinks they are entitled to something. No I don't mean handouts from the government, I mean stuff like happiness and vacations.

Guess what?

No you aren't.

Vacations happen when you have enough money to afford them or when you are stupid enough to spend your cash even if you don't have it so you can say you went somewhere. (Then you cry poor the rest of the year and drive everyone else crazy)

Happiness? Fuck, I'm so sick of people thinking things will make them happy. Maybe if people stopped worrying about being happy, they'd get more done, have better behaved kids and then...OMG they might actually be happy.

It is like the people that think having something or someone will make things all better. Unless it is lots of money, I can guarantee things, will not make life better. There are people that look for significant others to take their problems away.

Again, this is what's wrong with this country, we can't deal with our own problems so we look to other people to solve our own.

That doesn't work.

You can't expect people to always fix things. Sometimes you have to man up, or put your big girl panties on, and get things done. Stand up to people (I know..I'm one to talk), stop letting people walk on you, and get it done.

It is just like our obsession with stuff...We have to have smartphones and tablets, but no one seems to want books. Did  you notice that the Kindle Fire commercial has settings to shut down viewing for kids, for when they play or watch too much. Shame your kid isn't READING on the damn thing.

Gee, do kids play with toys anymore?

Step away from the gadgets, get out there and play, or play inside. Learn to communicate. Stop being idiots. Stop being nasty. And if you kid is nasty, a good slap on the bottom isn't going to hurt them.

There now...some problems solved..

A Few Things

2. I'm sick of being stuck in the Mon Valley.
3. I'm sick of not getting any help around here.

6. When do I get time for me?

Top 5 On Friday

Top 5 reasons CDs are better than mp3s

1. Mp3s don't come with cool artwork or lyrics.

2. Old cars have CD players, so CDs come in handy.

3. Mix CDS are more fun than playlists. (And they make great gifts)

4. CDs aren't invisible!

5. You can't display an mp3

Who Withdrawal

I need Doctor Who.

I can't believe this series is over until November..and then we are only getting the special for the anniversary of the shows first air date.

So wrong, so very wrong indeed.

I can only re-watch the episodes I have so many times before madness sets in.

And we are entering the time when all tv is crap.

The summer is a vast wasteland of nothing to watch. (And believe it or not, I can only read so much before my eyeballs pop out!)

I need these two guys back on my tv screen ASAP.

Well at least Tennant will make it there in August when we get Broadchurch.

What To Say

Prayers to those in Oklahoma where that nasty Tornado hit...


Urgent, please share. 

For all of those affected by the tornado in Oklahoma City, or those who know folks who may have been in the storm's path and have lost pets that are microchipped - please call us at 1-888-466-3242 to report your pet missing and make sure your contact info is up to date.

If you have found a pet and are comfortable approaching, please take them to a local vet or shelter to be scanned if possible. PetRescuers in the area, we need extra eyes today watching for traumatized lost pets. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost so much yesterday. Also, we have heard the Home Depot in Moore has been keeping lost pets so if you are looking, you may want to check there.

And we can only hope more moments like this can happen:

What A Weekend

I took a break this weekend, as you might have.

I had a lot going on.

I took my car for breaks this weekend and I had to walk home from the garage so I wouldn't be stuck in a waiting area for 3 hours. Then had to walk back to pick up the car when it was done.

Yup...that was a couple of miles, which my fat body isn't used to...but I survived.

Until yesterday, when I had to be awake early to take the cats to the rabies clinic at the YMCA. That was two trips for the kittens and the dog.

After that it seemed like all my energy was gone. I got nothing done at all yesterday.

A big ole zippo.

A Few Things On My Political Rant List

~ People are complaining because President Obama had a marine hold an umbrella over his head when he addressed the country about the IRS scandal.

Uh, he is the leader of the free world, and he does command a certain amount of respect. I'm pretty sure that marine is happier holding an umbrella over the Pres' head than if he were fighting somewhere. Truth be told..what he did was an HONOR!

~ And while were at with imbeciles ranting about the POTUS...the jerks that say they want the same security at their schools that there is in his children's schools.

First...these children belong to the leader of the free world. As much as I don't like saying this....that makes them MORE IMPORTANT than your average kids.


Oh I don't know...maybe international incidents?

Personally, I really would hate any child of mine to be at a school with armed guards etc. If that's what happens as a result of idiots and the guns that we feel the need to possess in this country, I'd have to say, I'm all for home schooling.

School is prison enough for children, and the security in place at many schools in my area make it more so.

~ And then there is Benghazi...I'm not outraged by this. 4 people died...what about all our soldiers that died in 2 wars we couldn't afford to fight.

But that ends up being like that commercial about how many people die from smoking and second hand smoke. Which is the more evil? It isn't for me to decide..but I'm at a point where I feel our taxpayers dollars are being used to bark up a dead horses ass.

~ The IRS...targeting a political group that thinks their taxed to much when their organizations are filing for Tax Exempt status..while I know this is wrong..does anyone besides me see the irony in this?

Cat Thursday!

From The True Book Addict

Have some cat funnies!

And now for one of my furbabies!

The Post Where I Whine Some More About Needed A Break

Just to let you know, my father is driving me batty! We have some storage cubes in our kitchen. I've said it before, our house is old and there are no cabinets My dad was trying to hide the new bag of cat food I bought and he knocked out to of the walls of one of the cubes. It is a good thing I was in a good mood last night, because at 10:00 pm I had to take everything out of the cubes to put the shelves back together and then reorganize them, all while he was denying he did anything. Gotta love my dad. In the face of accusation...especially when he's wrong....he lies like a trooper. Oye vey. Maybe I'll catch a nap after work today... Probably not.

Quite Possibly The Funniest Gif Ever!

Go ahead! I dare you not to laugh! I couldn't wait til Cat Thursday to share this one, it was so funny.

The Randomness Of My Thoughts

~ Have any of you seen the new fall line up for NBC? Seriously, Michael J Fox is their big draw, playing himself?

As much as I admire him for working and bringing awareness to the world about Parkinson's this is the best show that NBC has to offer?

Seriously, watch the trailer? It is painful and not all that funny. Definitely not something that is worthy of Michael J Fox's talent.

~ While I'm bitching about about the big fail for BBC, sending out the part 2 Series 7 Blu Ray DVDs a few weeks early. And then the vendors mailing out pre-orders so that some people have seen the finale before it aired!

Way to go guys!

~ Anyone playing Candy Crush Saga! I swear I've been stuck at Level 70 for months! It is driving me mad! Oh and OMG there are commercials on TV for this stupid game! OMG WTF BBQ!!!!!

Weekend Randomosity

~ The last few Doctor Who episodes have been freaking amazing. I finally liked an episode with The Cybermen! ~ Made cabbage rolls fyi...Savoy Cabbage is the greatest! ~ Yay Pens! Sorry get to go home! ~ Bad headache...I has one... ~ I don't understand the hype around The Great Gatsby movie, maybe it is because I'm one of the only women alive that doesn't like Leodarndo DiCaprio. I just can't stand his smug face. ~ Why can't That 70's Show be on at a time when I can watch it? I love that show now..wish I had watched it when it was on originally.

When Stinkbugs Attack

I'm pretty sure Steven Moffat could come up with a pretty cool storyline to revolve around these ugly brown bugs from hell.

Oh wait, they don't have them in the UK!

Well you are all so very lucky.

These little fuckers buzz like bees so you jump every time you hear them, land as poorly as seagulls and serve only one purpose, to drive you mad!

Perfect Who alien!

C'mon Moffat! I dare you!

Write the story..and takes some of these damn bugs to the you can have fun with them too!

Oh The Frustrations

I signed up for My Fitness Pal. It is a website/app that helps you track the calories you take in the amount you burn during exercise.

It is very depressing.

It seems to think that I should only consume 1200 calories a day.

So far that's not happening

So I feel like a miserable failure.

I'd feel better if I had the chance to exercise, but that's not been happening much this week.

Oh and on a non weight related rant.

The Pittsburgh Penguins suck!

And I mean that in the nicest way possible.

How a team in 1st place can fall apart in the playoffs is beyond me. The games are too painful to watch.


They should be ashamed of themselves.

Really ashamed...since they are making millions to play so lousy. If I had their millions, I could hire a trainer and a dietitian to keep me from shoving food in my pie hole.

So much to say...

Have you ever had so much you wanted to say, but when it was time to say it the words aren't there?

Yup that's me.

There's so much on my mind, but I can't get out...

Allow me to summarize:

1. Code Enforcement letters bite big wind. Thankfully our town's officer is understanding and giving us an extension. Oh and someone please tell me how to get a house painted when one of the residents is 87 with severe COPD and on oxygen 24/7. Yeah, that will end up in an ER visit.

2. Mankind is generally stupid and evil and full of hatred.

3. I don't like one of my siblings...nope..don't like one of them at all.

4. There's an issue with stray cats in one of the neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. Some asstard on Facebook made the comment to shoot them.

Can you see the smoke coming out of my ears?

If people were responsible this would not be a problem.

If you can't care for an animal, don't get the animal.

Cats shouldn't be left outside. Ask any vet. Your pet has a longer lifespan if it stays inside! If you can't commit to that, don't get the animal no matter how cute and fluffy and sweet it is.

Oh and that goes for kids too! If you can't take care of them properly don't get knocked up! Birth control is pretty damn cheap! Use it!

5. Stink bugs annoy the shit out of me and my cats.

6. All my tv shows are really bad right now, and that even goes for Doctor Who which has been hit or miss with me this time round.

Only Bad Luck

We have to find someone to paint our house.

And we have very little time to do it...

And next to no money.

For the longest time, my father was able to do this sort of thing, but at his age and with his health, we all know that's out of the question.

However we have no idea who to call to get estimate or know anyone that's ever had any exterior paint work done.

I don't know where to turn at this point. I really don't.

I'm really ready to give up on everything. There is no point ...

I Need To Vent

I need a break from my life. I'm really at the point of no return.

I love my parents. I can't say that enough. I want them both to stay in their home as long as they possibly can, but I need to get away from this house.

I need to be able to sit in a room with a book and be left alone.

Weekends mean nothing to me.

There's no relaxing just more and more running, to do the stuff I can't do during the work week.

I can't get anything done

More often then not, I'm angry, frustrated and at my wits end.

I need help.

Not permanently,  just a few hours so I could leave and decompress.

I just want to be alone, somewhere far away from my house and everyone in it.

It probably sounds selfish, but I can't help it.
