Not Responsible For Loss Of Limbs!

Today (pretty much like every other day) my head is filled with mounds and mounds of Randomness. I'm not really sure how to put it all into perspective I don't guess. That's why I have this blog, so I don't have to put anything into perspective. I can just lay out all of my thoughts, no matter how strange or random, and let the chips fall where they may. Kind of like I do every other day of my life. Not the point though! So once again just a few random things that are on my mind today.

Today is Greg's birthday. Happy Birthday Bubba!! Not only is it Greg's birthday, but it's also Uncle Kenny's birthday and the neighbor boy from when I was 3 years old. Yeah, I know, many birthdays today. What can I say? October must have been a busy month. I called him at 5:30 am, to which he didn't answer the phone, so I left a voicemail, that way it would beep until he listened to it. He called me back (much later in the morning), but I was at work so I will be calling him again this evening.

I should have NEVER ate all of that burrito for lunch. Now, I might need to puke. It was too much. Good, but too much! Thank you for lunch though Aunt Susi! It was good, just too much burrito! :)

I went to the doctor again yesterday like I said, to get my results from my Colposcopy. I said that I was more nervous about the test than the results. Well, I was. Needless to say the results were not near as good as I was hoping. Actually, it was more than not near as good. They sucked. The cells have advanced quite a bit more than they originally were into "cancerous", so I have to have three treatments of the "acid/chemical peel" thing. I'm not sure what the medical term for it is, but that's what she pretty much said it was. I had my first treatment yesterday during my appointment and go back on (Aug. 16) for the second one. If these treatments don't work then they will have to remove that part of my cervix. Aunt Susi and I say "carve me like a Pumpkin", because the way she described that procedure to me that's what it sounded like. In any event I am nervous, and not loving this at all, but I'm going to deal with it the best way that I know how. How's that you ask? Well, truth is I don't know, but I'm tough and know that I got this. It's just one more bump in the road. Like I said, I've been better, but I've felt worse. :) I would like to get off this subject now.

Johnny Depp is still on this "quitting acting" kick and I'm about tired of it. His "people" just need to give me his home address and leave us alone for a few hours so that maybe I can talk some sense into him. Yeah, that's it. Talk some sense into him. Just saying.

Kenny and I watched the movie The Possession last night. It was pretty good. A little creepy and strange though. Kind of makes me paranoid of people that stare. Yes, I know that I stare, but that's completely different. I try not to be all creepy when I do it. Some people are just creepy without trying. They know who they are.

I really need to start checking off some books on my Book Bucket List here soon. I've been trying, but I've been busy, working, exercising, going to the doctor, or lazy watching movies lately. Yes, I'll admit at night and some weekends I'm relatively lazy and enjoy watching tv/movies. Just wait until SOA comes back on if you think that I'm bad now! Danielle is going to bring me the 50 Shades of Grey book I reckon, so maybe I'll get that one checked off eventually.

I would just like to tell everyone to watch "Glozell" videos! Thank you YouTube! On a Side Note: I think Honey Boo-Boo may be in cahoots with Satan. I'm just saying what we're all thinking.

Shylyn was telling us about her school field trip for this year. Apparently they all are supposed to go. It's a week long field trip camping in the hills of Tennessee. When asked if I would feel comfortable camping in the hills of Tennessee for a week, I said "Yes I would, but it's because I grew up in the hills of Tennessee so I'm perfectly comfortable with it. However, I would not be comfortable with my child who had never really left the city going with 80 other students like that". Especially with only a small amount of chaperones going. Not to mention the parents/guardians have to sign a waiver stating that the school is not responsible for "death, allergic reactions, loss of limbs, pregnancy, kidnapping, or drowning" among all the other things that are listed. Not responsible! Uh, just so you know, you are!! She's done it before and they feel comfortable with it so I reckon it's all good. Just not my cup of tea.

I need to do some serious work on my hair and make-up today. I dyed my hair the other day which is good, but I felt kind of cruddy yesterday evening so I went to bed with it wet. NOT a good idea ever. When I got up this morning to get ready for work I was still feeling pretty cruddy so even though I tried to accomplish something with my hair and make-up it didn't work. I look kind of rough. I still feel like crud, but that's no excuse to be looking like it so much. I'm trying to feel good regardless of what's going through my mind. I'm just stubborn like that. Seriously, I need to do something with this hair and make-up of mine.

A guy I grew up with/friends with when we were younger that I have on my FB and Instagram posted a saying today that I really liked. You don't know it, but thank you Berry, It's awesome- "I Choose: To live by choice, not by chance, To be motivated, not manipulated, To be useful, not used, to make changes, not excuses, to excel, not compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity, I choose to listen to my inner voice not to random opinions of others, I choose to do things that you  won't so I can continue to do the things you can't"

Why Do I Remember That?

Yesterday morning as Aunt Susi and Danielle were talking about a new App out, and going to the movies, I was reminded of when I went to see Saw V in theaters. I went with a guy that I was kind of seeing at the time, his best friend, and his best friends fiance. Let's just say that date was excruciatingly horrible different. A friend of mine from work had her cousin come in one night when we were working a double, he saw me and told her he thought that I was cute, she thought that we would be "adorable" together, and that's how I met Frank. Thanks Cracker Jack.

His name really wasn't Frank, but for the sake of not getting sued in some form or another-we shall call him Frank. We had been on one date and had been talking for awhile. Our first date was pretty "low-key" and we had just hung out and had a few drinks. We didn't do too much on our first date because he insisted on coming to see me after I got off work, and I didn't get off until after 11:00 pm. They wanted me to work over and I didn't because I was going out with him. Thinking back I should've just pulled that double. On our second (first "official going somewhere") date he asked me to go with him and his friend (that we'll call Sammy) and dude's fiance (that we'll call Nevaeh...Why? Because that's the stupidest girl name I can think of...EVER!) on a double date. I agreed and he picked me up from my apartment around five that afternoon.

We drove into the town next to us (remember people I lived in the sticks) where he lived. We met up with Sammy and headed over to pick up Nevaeh. Should've never picked her up. Can we say bat shit crazy odd? The experience started from there.

First: I climbed into the driver's side of Frank's truck, because the passenger door stuck. He tried to help me in (I'm so short I had to climb in it), but my shoes were wet from the grass and I ended up slipping and smacking my face on his big ole-timey Chevy steering wheel. The rest of our the date, I had a steering wheel imprint on the entire left side of my face. Not attractive, but what are you gonna do? We switched from Frank's truck to a car because the theater we were going to was about an hour and a half away, and we all couldn't fit in his truck. That was fine. No big deal. Or so we thought. As soon as that crazy girl got into the car she started going nuts about the wedding. Nuts! Apparently, Sammy was supposed to be picking up some things for this "joyous" day and didn't. She was yelling and hitting him in the face screaming obscenities (he was driving down the road by the way), and then she turned on Frank. I guess with him being the best man he had responsibilities to, and wasn't holding up his end of the stick.

Second: We went to a BBQ place to eat before the movie. I love BBQ! Love it! So did the guys. Being from the towns that we were, you only had so many options to choose from, so you learned to love what was there. BBQ was definitely a staple for us. Well, that time around Frank got chicken. We weren't aware that it was bad (of course) so he ate it and ended up getting food poisoning by the end of the night. Crazy ass Nevaeh had water and complained that it was dry. Yeah, still haven't figured that one out.

Third: We ran into the mall when we got down there (I had never been in it and Frank told me that there was a carousel in it. I thought that was neat, so Frank and Sammy wanted to take me to see it). We shouldn't have done that. We ended up running into the bridesmaids from hell  the wedding. Let's just say twenty-five of the longest minutes of my entire life!! We finally made it to the movie and watched Saw V. Gross movie! I liked it and it was good, but people were getting sick and screaming and doing bad in the theater. Frank decided to put his arm around me, which was fine, but Nevaeh saw this and commenced to hitting Sammy in the face and screaming "Why don't you do that with me! You don't love me!!" Which he responded to by saying "Well, I'm marrying your crazy ass ain't I!!" From there on the fight was on. Well, more than it had been already.

The ride home was real fun, let me just tell you. Good times, good times. Sense the sarcasm?

By the time we got back to Frank's truck, there were never two people in the world more ready to commit hairy-carrey! Seriously! Never! We got in the truck and listened to the radio and talked as he took me home. It was pretty late so there was no one on the roads. About halfway there we had to pull over because the impending food poisoning had gotten to Frank and he had to throw up. I wasn't paying much attention to our surroundings, I was just trying to help him. It was pitch black out. Then I realized where we were. Out of all of that long country road that we had to choose from, he had pulled into the county monument making company and puked all over someone's tombstone. That's an Omen. I'm pretty sure that both of us had dark clouds follow us around for weeks after that one. All I could think was, "Yep, definitely going to hell for this one". We got back in the truck and he took me the rest of the way home.

When we got there I don't exactly know what was going through his mind but he tried to kiss me goodnight. What was going through my mind? "Dude! Seriously! You just puked everywhere! Are you crazy?!"  I was like yeah not gonna happen. He got out to let me out and apologized for the "unusual" date that we had just been on.

We dated more after that (around 3 months on and off I guess), and the dates were better than the second. Seriously though, the only way they could've gotten worse is if some dark voo-doo and Taylor Swift had been involved. They weren't great though, so we had talked about not seeing each other anymore. After we had this conversation I received a text message on my break at work saying that I was a great person and very beautiful, but he didn't think this relationship was working and we should just be friends.

In Guy Code that means: I don't want anything serious, but I may want to "hit you up" again in the future.
In Girl Code that means: I'm a Tool, and it's definitely you not me.

What I took from the text message? Number one, we just had this conversation six hours ago and came to the same conclusion. Number two, Really Dude over a text message? Number three, I wasn't even aware we were in a serious relationship. Number four, Seriously! We just had this conversation!

My friend at the time (Justin) tried to make me feel better about this and I had to tell him that I wasn't upset at getting "broken up with" I was confused because we already had this conversation and I didn't even know that he was my boyfriend. I know it's sad, but it's the truth. Justin looked as confused as me at that point.

Now every time someone talks about a horrible date, I automatically think back on this one. Now that I think about it, I can't even remember his last name. Guess we weren't "soulmates" huh? :)

A Serious Discussion Between Inigo And I

Yesterday Inigo and I had some very important topics that we felt the need to discuss. After a hard day of work and invitation making, Danielle's a slave driver over invitations we needed a small "chillaxing" moment. These seemed really important to us at the time. Just go with it.

#1: What kind of Beer were we going to drink at the New Brewery down the road from the Shop when we got off work.

#2: Who was going to play "Christian Grey" in the film adaptation of the E.L. James trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey.

Yeah, we know. Not the most important topics. It's not fixing anything, but it's a little "girl talk" and we needed it. Seemed like good topics to us at the time. Beer and pretty men, I mean Come On! Just saying.

Just to fill you in the Beer was great! The Brewery was extremely HOT. 93 degrees in there, but it didn't get any hotter than that, and it didn't keep us from drinking! Yacht Rock was my favorite brew, and so worth the heat!

 (Sorry the pictures aren't that good, but you get the point, it was HOT and camera's were blurry!!!)

Since Danielle has read the Fifty Shades book and I haven't she probably has a better understanding of what the character is supposed to be like. That of course didn't keep me from having my opinion though, and we decided we would have a draw. Observe our votes...

*Danielle's Vote(s) or #1 Contender(s) If You Will...

 (Henry Cavill)

(Alex Pettyfer)

*America's (Fangirls) Vote(s) or #1 Contender(s)...

(Alexander Skarsgard, Alex Pettyfer, Stephen Amell
Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer)

*My Vote(s) and #1 Contender(s)...

(Sam Worthington)

(Charlie Hunnam)

Don't get me wrong. All of these men are very pretty attractive. Like Seriously attractive, but I love Sam Worthington and think that he's completely under-rated. I think that he would do that role justice, just like every other film that he's ever been in. And Charlie Hunnam has been a favorite of mine for a couple of years now. I think that he could play the role excellent. He's proven that he's a versatile actor, and I think that he has alot to offer. 

That was how Danielle and I bonded spent "girl time". We're very diverse like that. One minute we go from beer to men, and then switch to books to work and music. That Lumineers song (The Morning Song) that she insists that I listen to makes me want to jump off of a bridge. Seriously! Sad freaking song! But since she listens to my Country, I guess I'll listen to that song. We're just all over the place all the time! I can't focus and she just goes with that fact. It works for the most part. I guess we'll see which one of us was right, and who gets cast. Who really knows?

A Few Books On My Bucket List

I love reading. Everyone knows this. It's not a secret. Everytime I get a few books off of My Book Bucket List, I end up having to put triple that back on there. It's so wrong. So many Books, So little time. These books are one's that I have and just haven't had a chance to read, books that people keep insisting that I read, or one's that I feel that I need to read sooner rather than later. Can you tell I'm a bit of a Chelsea Handler fan? All of my friends keep insisting that I read these "50 Shades of Grey" novels. Yes I know. I still haven't read them. The entire country has read them. Actually I'm pretty sure that the whole world has read them. It's this huge phenomenon and I'm over here like, "Ahh maybe I will, maybe I won't". I know I'm horrible. But now their talking about making it a movie, and I know me with movies. I'll be watching the movie, and I like reading the books first, so I think that I'm going to have to break down and read the trilogy. Yes my friends, I think I'm going to have to finally give in. Dang it. Oh well, it will be nice to know what the hell people are talking about.

The only reason that those Gabriel's novels are on this bucket list is because they are written by the same woman that wrote the "50 Shades" trilogy under a different pseudonym. I figured if I go ahead and read them that by the time people start talking about them that I'll already know what's going on. Unlike now. I have no clue. Just saying. "Voyager" is the third novel to a series that I started reading about six years ago. By started six years ago, I literally mean I read the first book in the series six years ago, and have not read any more of them. I know it's sad. But there are like nine books in the series so far. I have them all, but dang their like 1,000 pages long each and in very tiny print. Now that I think about it, I should read the second one first. Actually, I should just start from the beginning and read the whole series through. Damn. I've decided I need to start from the beginning. Wish me luck!! I want to read all of Chelsea Handler's books. I'm a big Chelsea Handler fan just for the plain fact that I think she's hilarious! That alone makes me want to read her books. 

I'm fascinated with the 80s. Everyone knows that. I would have loved to live back in the 60s, 70s, 80s. I say that because I only see all the amazing/fascinating things, not the bad things. Kind of like I think it would've been cool to live back in the 1700/1800's. It's always fun until you have to do it. Anyways, the reason I want to read "Confessions of a Groupie" is just to read some more about the 70s/80s. What can I say? I'm fascinated!! Finally, "Some like it Wild" is a novel by my favorite author (Teresa Medeiros). I have all of her novels including this one, I just haven't had a chance to read it yet. I think that I actually might get to start this one tonight though! Fingers-Crossed!! These are NOT EVEN CLOSE to all of the books on My "Book Bucket List", but hey it's a start! :)

Happy Independence Day!!!

"He Lay Where He Had Fallen. Enemy Fire Had Brought Him Down. He Knew His Life Was Over, As He Lost All Sight and Sound.

He Knew a Peaceful Sleep, Amidst the Raging Guns of War, But for Him the Fight Was Over. He'd Gave His All..And More.

Oh, He Was Not Alone. Others Have Fallen Too. And Time Will Not Erase the Fact... They Fell for Me and You.

We Owe These Men and Women, For They Never Got Any Older. We Didn't Even Know Them. To Most of Us They Were..Unknown Soldiers.

So Rest in Honored Glory, Each and Every One of You. You Gave All You Had to Give... For Freedom and the Red, White and Blue"
~Connie Moore 
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
