After Christmas rant?

Ok, this is something that has bugged me for awhile but since it is only two days after Christmas it seems the perfect time for me to let it all out!

Who the Hell comes up with the packaging for toys? I mean...reallly?? For those of you who have children you know exactly what Im talking about. For those of you who dont have any children young enough for toys, let me explain it to you. These companies make it so freaking difficult to get the damned toy out of the box. They cover it with glued down plastic stuff then they attach it to the box with little plastic twisty tie thingys that are twisted like 100 times. One little car will be attached to the box with 10 of these things! So not only does it take forever to get the stupid toy out of the damn box while excited children are trying to wait patiently, you also have a billion of these little plastic twisty things and trash to pick up! They also tie everything down! If it comes with little extra parts they will still tie the tiniest parts down as well. Sometimes the packaging actually requires scissors or a knife just to get the main cover open! Then once you have that part CUT open you have to deal with all of the stupid little twisty ties. Now the new thing is that they SCREW toys to the box. I mean, literally, SCREW. You have to actually get a screw driver to undo the screws just to get a car out of the box! Who comes up with this crap? It has to be a man! No offense to any of my manly readers but most of us women would have some common sense about this kind of thing! As if xmas and birthdays aren't already stressful enough for parents, having to take an hour to get one toy out of a box is just ridiculous! There have been so many times that I have wanted to call the toy company just to give them an ear full!

Rant for the holidays!

Ok, I have one small little rant before the holidays get here! Tomorrow we are going to be busy little bees! We still have a few last minute things to get, then we are meeting a friend of my husbands for lunch and then having a couple of friends over later in the day. I'm really looking forward to xmas morning this year. My kids are older and are understanding the whole concept of Santa a bit better this year. I can't wait to see the expressions on their faces when they come downstairs and see what Santa left!

Anyway, my little rant today as I'm seeing all of the xmas advertising all over the tv is about all of these perfumes coming out now. What's the deal with all of the trendy little pop dumbasses, whoops, I mean "divas' coming out with their own perfume? No, not perfume, I mean, "fragrance". Oooh la la!

They give it some fancy sparkly name and then slap a $60 or more price tag on a tiny little bottle of it. I'm literally sitting here rolling my eyes just thinking about it. The sad thing is, they SELL them! and LOT of them! All of the trendy little girls out there think they have to beg mommy and daddy to shell out big cash just so they can say they are wearing j-lo's "fragrance". You can go to walmart and pay $7 for a big ass bottle that smells just the same! Ugh! It's funny though how it's usually the stars who are losing their a-listing status that come out with their own "fragrance". Like, making their own perfume is the bottom of the barrel for them! Put some clothes on sisters and do something that actually involves having talent!

Wanna earn some extra spending cash?

Ok, I do run a blog that is specifically aimed towards different money making opportunities over the internet. However, I just wanted to let my rants in my pants readers know about this new opportunity that I have found. It's just like myspace except you get PAID for page views. Every time someone looks at your page, blog, pics, any of your pages, you get paid for it. They also have a referral system so that when you refer someone else you can make even more money! I've heard that some people have made a significant amount of money from this. If anyone would like to join me in this little venture then feel free to check it out. You can find out more here!

It's easy and it's fun. You can design your own page, add friends, leave comments and do everything you can on myspace but this time you are getting some spending money along with it!

Holy crap! I can't believe it has been THIS long since I last posted in here! I am still around and haven't forgotten about my lil blogs! Just so much going on since I last posted here! My husband had surgery. He went back to work and I was ready to get back into the routine of things until at the end of that week his whole crew got laid off for the winter (he does concrete work). We knew it was coming but we didnt think it would be until the end of November/early December. He is working a different job now for the winter but he is working 2nd shift hours which Im not used to. I have been searching for a part time job to do during the day (i do work at home, but damn it, i need out of the house, lol!). So far I havent had much luck and Im really surprised considering that it's the xmas season! UGH!...So anyway, I'm finally trying to get back into a routine. Im not used to my husband being gone in the evenings and I have found myself being very bored while he is I guess it's a good time for me to do my blogging to keep myself occupied. I love routine and when my routine gets messed up I feel lost for awhile and overwhelmed. I've always been like that. I'm just a weirdo, I guess.

Anyway, my adsense account has been disabled! Ugh. I have heard many others complain about disabled accounts for no good reason. The reason for this was invalid clicks. Ok, well, let's think about this. My blogs are small. I dont have a lot of readers, I dont really have a lot of page hits considering that I have been doing this for almost a year now. I have had an adsense account for quite awhile now, even before my blogging days. I have YET to reach the payout minimum. Hmm, don't you think that if I was fradulantly clicking adsense ads then I would have made payout by NOW?? I'm not even CLOSE to pay out! Give me a break people. It would make more sense if I was making payout all of the time, but I'm not! Ofcourse it's adsense so they can't even give you details of the invalid clicks so that you can know what the Hell they are talking about! Grrrrrr....

Ok, well, I am going to try to post more now that Im getting used to this new routine. Prepare for a rant coming soon!
