Another personality test

Feeling Skeptical


took this personality test after reading Pinklady's blog because I'm waiting until I can get refreshed on Spymaster.

Here's what it said. My comments are in italics.

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties. Sure.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true. Uh, no. That's amusing.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.
I am not ready at all. I know this. I'd like to have sex again, but that would involve a little bit of talking and more talking to get him to get out of my effing house afterward.

"That has never been me. Stupid test."

The seriousness of your love:

You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love. That's true. I don't like wasting time with people I don't like. But I don't see me falling deeply and beautifully in love. Ever.

Your views on education

Education is less important than the real world out there, away from the classroom. Deep inside you want to start working, earning money and living on your own. Blah blah blah.

The right job for you:

You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life. Yada yada.

How do you view success:

You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying. My back is starting to hurt...

What are you most afraid of:

You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear.Um, no. I can't even believe that I got that "time to believe in who you are and not what you wear" bullshit. That has never been me. Stupid test.

Who is your true self:

You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long. LMFAO! Full of energy. HA! I am usually calm and still until The Boy enters the room...

High Five Friday- 5/29/09

Feeling Whatever


irst is something that I don't normally do.

This week I made a scrapbook page for one of my friends and her beeyooteeful daughters. I thought it was interesting that she had 1) found matching clothes for 2 kids of such different ages and 2) found matching bows. After reading her blog, I found out that the bows that they had in the pictures were made by Lanie of Laniebug Bowtique.

So, no, I won't be wearing any of these bows, but if you have babies or little girls and you think the bows are cute too, then go buy some! She also has blankets, toys and other things at :-)

Through the miracle

Feeling Better


f some unorthodox voodoo medicine (meaning, no I will not tell you what I did because it's insane and I don't want anyone else to try it), I am feeling much better with my back.

I'm surprised, actually.

But not so much better that I'm going to sit here on the computer for hours, LOL.

Thanks for your concern! :-)

Feeling Surprised


MLY, I just watched Obsessed on A&E.

It's a show about people with OCD and they get therapy to get over their obsessions. It's like Intervention for people with OCD. The first episode showed Helen & Scott.

"I mean, I still like to eat my M&Ms according to color from least to greatest, but I'm not checking the fucking alarm clock 50 times an hour."Scott had the OCD that we (probably) always think of. He was germ obsessed. He wouldn't have any garbage cans in his house (he took trash straight out to the garbage can in the back yard), he wouldn't hang up towels in his house (because he'd use them and put them directly in the washer), he couldn't have a real relationship.

His therapist exposed him to his "triggers" and after 3 months, he was finally living with his BF and NOT obsessing about everything. When his therapist came over for one of his "exposure" days, she told him she was on her period and had to use his bathroom. She made him find something as a trash can so she could put her "used" tampon in there.

After he got rid of the trash, she made him touch the basket that she had used as a trash can, put the clean towels in the basket & then touch them to his face, and not wash his hands or the bathroom.

You know he was freaking the fark out, LOL.

Helen was afraid of driving on the highway. Her father died from a bus crash about 2 years after her mother died of cancer.

She kept the clothes he died in, blood and all, and would wear them. She did the repetitive checking of alarm clocks, locks, stove burners, even asking her 3 children over and over again if they were wearing their seat belts.

I joke about being OCD. I mean, I am a little anal. Compared to the people I saw tonight, I am the most well adjusted human being EVER, thankya Jaysus.

I mean, I still like to eat my M&Ms according to color from least to greatest, but at least I'm not checking the fucking alarm clock 50 times an hour.


Anyway, I don't like to end on a low note (inside joke), so here's a rap from "The Mighty Boosh". It comes on Sundays at 1 am on Cartoon Network. If you haven't seen it, watch it. You can watch it on youtube, I guess.

Question of the Week - 5/21/09

Feeling Curious


ere's a new 'feature' on my blog.

When I can't think of anything to write (or can't remember), I shall ask a question.

Answer in the comments.

Thank you.

"If you had to name your blog after a song, what song would it be?"This week's question is "If you had to name your blog after a song, what song would it be?" Artist & Song.

My answer is "Yah mo be there" - Michael McDonald & James Ingram

Because I've always found that writing helps me figure out what I'm feeling.

It's kind of like praying. I guess. Except you get answers (sometimes) instead of just putting it out there in the universe and hoping for some sign to help you understand.

Blogging also helps me know that I'm not the only one feeling something. Logically, I know this, but it is nice to get an "amen" from the blogosphere.

Plus it's nice when I'm feeling like crap to know that somebody (even if it's someone I've never met IRL) cares.

It was either this or "Me, Myself and I" by Dela Soul.


So what's your answer?

I told you I can remember anything!

Feeling Amused


his is why Twitter is no good for people like me. Because I can't remember what the eff I said to them!

Random Tweets

For the record, always assume that Hugh Laurie is my number 1 guy unless you hear otherwise on this blog! ;-)

Now playing: Michael McDonald - I Keep Forgetting

Guess What

Feeling Angry


ou know those cleats I bought?

After 4 practices, there are no more practices until August.

Like Evan's flipping feet won't grow for 3 months.

Why did I have to buy cleats for 4 practices????????????

Flipping football.

I hate the south.

But I was able to re-apply for his insurance online yesterday. So hopefully, we'll be getting his card soon. Unless they tell me to apply for medicaid again...

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Yet again, nothing to say...5/19/09

Feeling Irritated


xcept I got a call from the school nurse yesterday saying that Evan was having problems with his asthma. So I looked for his inhaler (no idea where he puts these things) and ended up calling the pharmacy for a new one.

When I got to the pharmacy, dude said "$39.55"
Me - WHAT? He has insurance!
Dude - They said it was terminated.

"His insurance terminated without telling me."We went through this shit a year ago. His insurance terminated without telling me, so I had to apply for medicaid. Medicaid said our income is too high and referred us to his insurance company. Back and forth a few times until his insurance company finally accepted him again.


So I told him that he'd better not lose his $40 inhaler. And he took 3 breathing treatments last night & one this morning.

Breathing TreatmentHe refuses to take his allergy pills because he says they make him sleepy. So, I tell him to take them at night. That seems obvious to me. But NO. He doesn't take them at all and his asthma gets aggravated.

Just like him going to football practice and inhaling all the pollen & shit that aggravates his asthma. But since I bought freaking cleats 2 years in a row, HE IS FINISHING THE EFFING SEASON.


Or is it all kids who refuse to take the medicine that they need to stay healthy?

Hugh Laurie Tag

Feeling Generous


ant one?

Hugh Band by Angelika

Reply in the comments with the NAME YOU WANT ON THE TAG.

Offer is open until I feel like closing it.

You'll know because the comments will be closed. I'll reply with the link to pick up your tag when it's done.

I miss tagging...

Is it Monday already?

Feeling Normal



This weekend flew by.

In a way.

MD came over and bought pizza on Saturday. (Yes, this is the second time in a week that she treated us to dinner. I think she's having fun with that Obama Economic Stimulus Refund she got.)

I spent that whole time in the bathroom. You don't want the details, trust me.

Here they are anyway: **TMI Alert**

I bought a fresh cantaloupe off a truck from a dude. I also had one of those starbucks (or whatever) coffee drinks. I don't normally have caffeine.

So I don't know if it was the fruit (which was extremely juicy and sweet) or the coffee that gave me diarrhea so bad that it was like pooping water. Yeah.

I'm afraid now to have either coffee or the rest of that cantaloupe, LOL.

**End of TMI**

"I said something and forgot what I said right away."So anyway, I told her Saturday that I'd come over today to hook up the new DVR Recorder that I convinced her to buy.

She called me and asked what time I was coming over. I didn't remember WTF she was talking about, but I said "Well, probably after I get Evan from football practice."


After I hung up, I remembered why I was supposed to go over there.

Did I tell you that when we were at Western Sizzlin, I said something, she replied immediately, and I stared at her for a few seconds and said "I have no idea what you're talking about."

For real.

I said something and forgot what I said right away. And my neurologist doesn't think I have problems with my memory.

Jason StathamI also watched Transporter 3. But I don't feel like reviewing it. If you liked the other 2, you'll like this one.

Jason Statham is HOTTTT.

Umm...I think that's it? Now I have to go shower so I can return the movie to the library.


BTW, I'm not liking my actual signature at the end of my posts. I hate my handwriting. I don't even know why I did that. Back to Monika font, I reckon...

Batman: The Dark Knight Movie Review

Feeling Excited


ell, I finally broke down and bought Batman: The Dark Knight because they don't seem to have it at the lieberry and the price isn't going down at Wal-Mart. Lately, it seems like they sell the movies at full price for a couple of weeks, then it goes down to $13.

I got tired of waiting, didn't want to pay to rent it when I knew I was going to buy it, so I paid $19.96. It hurt me to do that. Because Circuit City was selling it for $13 ONCE and, of course, Wal-Mart had no copies and wouldn't issue a rain check.



The Dark KnightThe Dark Knight
Starring: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman
Director: Christopher Nolan
Genre: Action Crime Thriller
Plot:from IMDb: Batman, Gordon and Harvey Dent are forced to deal with the chaos unleashed by an anarchist mastermind known only as the Joker, as it drives each of them to their limits.
Should you see it? Hell to the YES!!!
Rating (out of 5 hearts): ♥♥♥♥♥♥ (Yes, I know that's 6 hearts. I can count.)
My Comments: I really didn't have any expectations for this movie. I usually take a long time to see a movie if everyone and their brother has seen it and raved about it. All the hype makes me think the movie is going to be wonderful and I end up being disappointed. It took me until this summer to start watching Lost and now I love it.

This movie? This movie right here? This is THE SHIZNIT, BEEYOTCH!

"This movie? This movie right here? This is THE SHIZNIT, BEEYOTCH!"Heath Ledger was awesome as The Joker. I have always been partial to the first Batman movie with Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson and the Prince Soundtrack :-). But Heath Ledger took this role OVER. O.V.E.R. Now I understand why people (the general public) were so sad about his death. Because it would have been awesome if we could have had another Batman vs. The Joker movie.

But maybe it's best that we can't. We will not be disappointed with a sub-par script or Ledger doing an impersonation of himself playing The Joker, nodamene?

What surprised me was how funny The Joker was in this. The fact that I really can't remember if Nicholson was this funny as The Joker is saying a lot (to me).

If you've already seen it, see it again. If you haven't seen it, buy it. It was awesome.

I had planned to go to sleep during the movie, but Evan is the one who got sleepy and went to bed. I stayed up for the whole movie. It felt a lot longer than 152 minutes, but not in a bad way. Then I came to write a review while it's still fresh on my mind.

Love it, Love it, Love it.

It seemed like a lot of familiar faces were in the movie like Michael Jai White (Spawn), Anthony Michael Hall, Eric Roberts and Aaron Eckhart as Two Face. Don't even get me started on the special effects for that. So much creepier than Tommy Lee Jones' portrayal.

Ok, I'm going to bed before I replay the whole movie.
Now playing: Prince - Partyman


Feeling Homicidal


e did it again.

Once again, Evan has managed to delete all my fucking bookmarks & changed the appearance of my effing browser.


Anyway, all of my High Five Fridays are gone and now I must go and try to remember all the effing shit I had bookmarked.


**Update: 4:07**

I've created a new account for Evan.

Mine now has a convoluted password so he can't change anything because he can't even log on to my account LOL!

Now I'll take that valium. ;-)

Thirteen things I love about my 13 year old

Feeling Relaxed


his is assuming that I can think of 13 things after being awakened @ 7:30 am to be told that it was 7:30 and he had missed the bus...on purpose?
  1. His sense of humor

  2. His intelligence

  3. The fact that he's really not that bad.

  4. "He's still shorter than I am."
  5. He's not on drugs.

  6. He's not having sex (I guess)

  7. He's still cute

  8. He's still shorter than I am. (for now)

  9. He can lift heavy things

  10. He takes out the garbage after I've told him 50,000 times

  11. I can still beat him on some video games

  12. He still falls asleep in the car (like when he was a baby)

  13. He tries to make me laugh

  14. He still talks to me about school (as long as it isn't about his grades)

I met a celebrity yesterday!

Feeling Happy


ommy Dearest took us out for dinner last night. I think she was feeling guilty because this is the first Mother's Day that she didn't get me anything. Of course she didn't say that, but she NEVER takes us out to dinner because she doesn't want to pay dinner prices. Even at a buffet.
"I spent some time in jail there."Whatever.

I kept looking at this gray haired man every time he walked by. His face looked so familiar but I could not remember how I knew him.

When we were getting ready to leave, I asked him:

Bill MitchellMe - Are you from MYTOWN?
He - No. I spent some time in jail there.
Me - Oh, well I wouldn't know you from there.
His Wife(?) - Bill, tell her where she knows you from!
He - I'm the weekend anchor on the news.
Me - Oh! I knew you looked familiar, I just couldn't remember how I knew you.
He - Is this your son? He's a good looking boy.
Me - Thank you!

That was nice. And it's nice to see that he has a sense of humor. Even if I don't watch his channel, LOL.

I know why God gives us babies.

Feeling Tired


ot physically tired. Emotionally tired.

The Boy is literally driving me insane. He knows how to push my buttons and he does it. You would think that I know by now not to give him the satisfaction of flipping the eff out when he does it, but I can't help it.
  • Constant noise making

  • Standing too close to me when I'm on the computer

  • Putting his face right next to mine when I'm asleep so that he wakes me up

  • Not doing his homework

  • Refusing to brush his teeth

  • Making me scream at him to do anything

Making me repeat myself 7,008 times (getting louder each time) until he does WTF I told him to do. It's like he's asserting his independence all over again, but since I never really went through the Terrible Twos, it's a new experience for me.

Evan 4 mosAnd that's why God gave us helpless babies instead of having us shoot out children who could already walk and do things independently.

It's because He knew we'd take endless pictures of them and home movies of them and fall in love with them and be grateful for how happy they made us even when we didn't realize that we needed them in our lives in the first place.

Evan MonstahWe learn unconditional love from them. We learn patience from them. We learn to be amazed by everything again, like when we were kids.

"This child has driven me to the edge of insanity before, and I didn't kill him then."We will remember how they used to want us to hug them and kiss them, and how they always wanted to be with us. We will remember how cuddly they were and how good they smelled. We will remember how funny they were when they first started talking and thinking about things. Even the devious things like "How can I get a cookie from Mommy before dinner?" We will remember not getting upset at them when they drew all over the walls or painted their whole bodies with finger paint. We thought it was funny and cute.

Evan HeadphonesWe need to remember all the good times for when they turn into hormonal teenagers.

We will remind ourselves "I love this child." We will remember the good times we had with the child before it became this defiant cretin. We will remind ourselves of how we had to pray for the strength NOT to beat the child when they took a pair of scissors and cut up our good wig.

We will remind ourselves that "This child has driven me to the edge of insanity before, and I didn't kill him then. This is a phase, he'll get over it."

We will remind ourselves "I was a little shit too when I was that age."

We will tell ourselves "One day, I'll get my child back from this demon named 'Puberty' who has possessed him and I'll enjoy him fully again".

I just hope there's enough Xanax in the world to last me until then...

Mother's Day & Aunt Flo

Feeling ???


have no idea how I feel right now.

As you know, I am currently dealing with my hated Aunt Flo. Which means that one minute I'm pissed the eff off and the next minute I'm ready to cry.

There's some commercial on TV. I don't remember the product or even the industry. I just know it's a black family and the mom looks back at her baby and says "Honey Bunny" and the baby grins her toothless grin. I keep rewinding that.


But I have been thinking about when Evan was a baby.
"This Mother's Day...I did the laundry."
When he was about 6 months old and we went for a ride with the windows down and he was cracking up when the wind was going through his hair.

Evan 3 MonthsHe was such a good baby. Always happy. Never really cried. On my first Mother's Day, MD and I took him to a veddy fancy restaurant (the hospital gave me a free meal for 2 on Mother's Day). I know when I walked in with a 5 month old, everyone was thinking "Oh shit. That kid is going to be crying and ruin our day."

But he didn't. He just sat there looking around.

This Mother's Day...I did the laundry. My formerly precious bundle of joy was bugging the shit out of me to go outside and play with his cousin.

Me - Dude, it's Mother's Day. I'm sure he has plans with his mother and grandmother.
He - *sigh* Ok.

I didn't even get a kiss or a hug.

I did take him to MD's house so that we could give her our cards and the houseplant that I got for her. She was on her way to church so we didn't have to stay.

He gave her a hug. Effing suck-up that he is.

Whatever, man. I hate my period and it sucks that I was on it yesterday. :-(

That is all.

Feeling PMSsy


hope you're ignoring this post.

Not that you won't see what's happened next time I post.

I've been at this for about an hour. I envy Cardiogirl's pulled quotes. After trying three different "hacks", I finally found one that works. Now I just have to pull interesting quotes from my posts from now on. That is assuming that I have any interesting quotes in my blog posts.

That is why Cardiogirl is my blogging idol. I see things on her blog that make me green with envy and I try to duplicate it without straight out copying her template css and putting it here. "Cardiogirl is my blogging idol"

Because I could do that. Not that I'm a genius or anything, but when I realllllllly want something, I get it. Sometimes it's just luck. Most times it's sheer perseverance.

Plus she blogs 5 days a week and manages to keep me visiting. I don't know how long it's been that I've been reading her blog... Do you know how many blogs I started reading and loved and then they just disappeared off the face of the earth? Or started taking 2 weeks off at a time? Or privatized their blog so that I can't share their funniest/best posts with you on Fridays???

Too many. It harshes my mellow.

So I hope this works.

And it does.

I am so freaking awesome.

But now I don't know if I like it...

Damned PMS. Makes me feel like I need to change stuff and then I don't like it after I do!

:-) *sigh*
