What I'm watching...SLITHER..

Sorry folks...this is one of them thar REEL blogs that occasionally goes over to the DARK side..and it don't get one whit darker than this: The Movie SLITHER. This comes from my oldest 14 yo enthralled will zombies and gore ..the Weird needle like thing creates...a one mind conscious...old plot, new spin..
From the soundtrack:
BABY I love you but leave me the fuck alone.....
Well you know I said I'd love you for all time.
Well sometimes I just can't believe you're mine.
But every now and then
I'm ready to say when
Oh, baby I love you, just leave me the fuck alone.

Well in your arms is where I'll always stay
But something deep inside says not today
Well i'll be sitting here
working on this beer
Oh baby I love you, just leave me the fuck alone.

I try so hard each day
to make things go away
there's nothing left to say for tonight

For a couple of days I won't be comming round
I'm going to go get lost, I think I might skip town
Now I don't mean to pout
but you plain wore me out
Oh baby I love you, just leave me the fuck alone.

Oh, baby I love you, just leave me the fuck alone
I tried dancing, I just want to go home
I know your cooking's great
But dinner will have to wait
Oh, baby I love you, just leave me the fuck alone

Well I'm in a frazzled state
the party will have to wait
Oh, baby I love you, just leave me the fuck alone

Face book

The "beauty" of facebook...having people you don't care if you were ever in contact again contacting you....Like...a college date. "OH...Look who you find on the internet" he said...well yah..You can find GODZILLA too if you look hard enough.

NOT that he was Godzilla...I'm just saying. I was fresh off a breakup and thrilled to be back in University..he felt like he was a bad boy dating someone a year and a 1/2 older than him. He was from the big city...I was a "townee". This was me during that time:
We did the big whoopla one New Year's Eve..it was very pleasant..and one of the very first times ever that My ex fundamental Baptist self drank alcohol. yeah. I remember the bed spinning and things erupting..not so Christian that.

So..Godzilla...er...Rick has a beautiful child, and has been put in the position of being God Child to a roommates daughter (roommate died). We have been discussing how sometimes when the Hand of God chooses you to do something..you aren't equipped or ready or even WANT to do it.
I just think of that verse, "Hold my right hand and I will say to you, Be Not Afraid".

Car Wreck Deuce

My Dear Friend Denise...has a broken neck. Yes its true. She has walked the earth for years with a broken neck . this came out in "group" a couple years ago. Not in the counseling type group..the "group" of people sorting out the God thing group. They think she did it sledding as a kid
She is one of my fascinating friends.
anyway...She loses out in Michigan due to the economy...moves to North Carolina...New car...Some lady SMASHES it today...with no where for her to go. SMASH. Her neck? she crawled out of the window, yet couldn't go to The ER because it was 149 72 to go to the Emergency room and you have to pay RIGHT THEN.
Oh mmyyyyy Goadddddd don't get me started!!!! She STILL has a broken neck..the car wreck did no further damage at this time.

HOWEVER...her MEDS!! WALMART kept DOUBLING and TRIPLING what the doctor ordered!! It was bad. The Doctor didn't understand why it wasn't having any effect. She got an attorney...IT could have caused a HEART ATTACK!!!!

car wreck

Yah..here she is in all her splendor at the former owner's house. Before my husband smashed the front end out this summer. He ..was just distracted due to illness and KWAHHHM smashed into a lady. No police were called. Our car much worse off.

TODAY...I have 4 kids with me. I drop one off, go to where the van is getting detailed (PREMONITION MAYBE) say to my husband..ummmmm I"m driving these 2 kids without a Booster seat ---(Law here just changed to EIGHT YEARS OLD (ridiculous) OR 4"9"...Its Crazy!!The Older one was in front seat.
less than a MILE down the road...KAAAAAWHAAAMMM...some bitch slams into me in the volvo. Of course INSIDE the Volvo...No damage..no injuries. Now I"m just PISSED. Get out survey the damange...worse on hers than mine...I said do you want to call the cops? She said..NOt if YOU don't want too...I didn't I didn't want the $160 a piece ticket and some dumbass endangering a child or something they may come up with. I got the hell out of dodge.
Weird thing....EXACT same Place My husband ran into someone this summer.
The bumper is smashed in, I have a very sore back...(getting less so with wine)....

Employment searching

Wow. I feel so out of the loop. EVERY job just about has their OWN on line application that you have to fill out to apply. This may seem like an easy task. It's not. EACH one takes at least an hour. Between flipping for dates, times places...its WACK.

I applied for a job that is sort of scary. I used to be in "The Field" which is misnomer for Being in downtown BIG CITY with people who have committed CRIMES. Yah. Guess I"m looking to go back to that. I wrote to the Head Honcho that I know, and got a response right away, so maybe I will get an interview.

The reasons I'm looking ....kids are older, I feel Blessed to have been home / worked part time these years. I feel like my younger one will be getting the shaft though. We are not making it!! We ARE...but living beyond paycheck to paycheck.

I understand working with Renters (for the duplex I have) in that they can't come up with say $650 for Security Deposit and Then first months rent at the same time. On the other hand...WHY don't we as Americans have BETTER financial sense?

On Other Hand...Son just got braces to day that is going to cost over $10K. What is up with THAT?. Yikes. I'm all over the place.

Running Blind

I used to work at the Blind school, and never made it one time around the track,with my fingers in the metal loop on the guide wire without opening my eyes...now I feel like...I'm running blind...watching my life wave me goodbye..

Running Blind Lyrics

Can’t find the answers
I’ve been crawling on my knees
Looking for anything
To keep me from drowning
Promises have been turned to lies
Can’t even be honest inside
I'm running backwards
Watching my life wave me goodbye

Running blind
I’m running blind
Somebody help me see I’m running blind

Searching for nothing
Wondering if I’ll change
I’m trying everything
But everything still stays the same
I thought if I showed you I could fly
Wouldn’t need anyone by my side
I'm running backwards
With broken wings I know I’ll die

Running blind
I’m running blind
Somebody help me see I’m running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind

I can’t find the answers
I’ve been crawling on my knees
Looking for anything
To keep me from drowning
I’m running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind
Running blind

Happy Birthday to me

Quote for the day...

"Whatever you give a woman, she's going to multiply.
If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.
If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.'
So - if you give her crap,
you will receive more shit than any one human being can handle."
