Wedding History and Gift Ideas

Years ago, weddings tended to me more traditional. Couples typically had the same style of wedding that their parents had along with something old, something new, and something blue. Weddings have evolved quite a bit since the beginning, and these days you can have any kind of wedding you would like. Many couples like to go against the norm and have a wedding that is different and non-traditional while others like to stick with the old school traditions.

Moissanite offers engaged couples a variety of jewelry to choose from including engagement rings and other non traditional wedding jewelry such as pendants, and earrings. Whether you are looking for a gift to buy for your soon to be spouse or a family member who will be married soon, Moissanite has what you are looking for in a variety of shapes, sizes, and prices.

More Annoying Things...

I believe I wrote a post about this same subject awhile ago.. but I'm feeling the need to do it again. People annoy the ever loving crap out of me on a daily basis. Ignorance just seems to flow from the mouths of the majority of the human race and I find myself rolling my eyes numerous times throughout the day because of it. Here are a few more examples.


Calling your significant other or your child your 'boo'. Where did this come from? Are you pretending that you are a ghost and trying to scare other people away? How does anyone get words of affection out of the word boo? Do you know how fucking stupid you sound when you say it and how bad I just wanna give you a coot boot? Seriously!? It's like fingernails on a chalkboard whenever I hear someone say, “my boo did this” or “it's just me and my boo today”. Oh, tell Casper I said hello!


I don't mind when people call their daughter “baby girl” because it just really makes sense although I never really called mine that just because dumb people say it so often. I really don't get why men call their girlfriend or wife 'baby girl'. Are you a pedophile now? Do you also wipe your girlfriends ass when you change her diaper?? Stop it!


I may have listed this before but I'm listing this again. Bestie. I understand where the word came from but, honestly, it just sounds fucking stupid especially if you are over the age of 25. It makes me think of Beastie Boys or beastiality. No, seriously. Like oh mahh gawwddd my bestie is coming over! You sound fucking fucktarded. I actually have a few friends that use the word bestie and I have to clench my teeth every time I hear it.


…... I'm sure I'll have more to add to this list soon.

Too Much Sex!?

My kids are 8 and 7 years old. They like to watch a variety of movies including horror movies. As I was looking through our DVD collection, I realized that we have plenty of movies that our kids would probably enjoy but we can't/won't let them watch them because of the sex scenes in the movies. There have been a few times that we attempted to watch a movie with the kids in the room but have had to quickly turn it off because of a sex scene. It really gets irritating. I mean, come on people, if a movie has a good plot, a sex scene is not going to make or break a movie! How about more sex-less movies? Don't get me wrong, I'm not a prude or anything but come the fuck on. The shit gets old. The story could be just the same without any humping or boobie kissing. My kids love a good horror flick; they don't get nightmares from them and they know that it is all fake but they don't need to see S-E-X! I have 3 kids, it's not like I get turned on watching sex scenes in movies either or that I watch a movie just for that. Most movies would be just fine without it.. maybe a little kissing or even making out would be alright but a lot of movies get very graphic without being pornographic.

My next complaint is about all the cuss words in video games. Our kids like playing Gears of War but every 2 seconds the character in the game is saying, “fucking asshole!” or some other swear word. Ah yes, I do cuss like a sailor when I'm around my friends and on this blog but I watch my mouth in front of my kids or other people's kids and I yell at my husband if he lets one slip in front of them but they don't need to hear the shit while playing a fucking game! It's not needed.. unless you are some kind of uber gaming nerd that is impressed with curse words? Mm'kay. Oh, and yeah, call me a bad mom if you must because I let my kids play these games but their gaming time is limited and well, they like to kill aliens!

Why is the world so impressed with sex and curse words? Why do big companies think that these things make a movie or game more entertaining or interesting? A good plot and good acting are all that are needed to make an interesting movie worth watching, and an action packed video game with good graphics is what makes a good video game. I'm tired of having to fucking worry about what is going to be said or shown. Grown ups are idiots if they enjoy shit based on that. Yeah, I fucking said it. Fucking idiots. (My kids don't read this blog and yours shouldn't either, so don't bitch).

Are Zombies Taking Over??

What's the deal with all of the zombie-like events happening in this country? Stories of people chewing off another person's face and a mom chewing on her baby's arm? .. and these are just a few of the cannibalism stories happening in the year 2012. What gives? Is it because zombies have become popular over the last year or so especially after The Walking Dead was introduced to the masses? I happen to love that show and I've always been interested in horror movies and zombies.

When I was a kid, vampires used to be creepy and scary and eeeevil. Then Twilight came along and had to ruin it by making them sparkle and all pretty and stuff. They ruined the whole vampire vibe. Is the same thing going to happen with zombies? Is it going to become so popular that it gets stupid? Are people eating other human beings because of the zombie popularity? Is it the bath salts? Could a zombie apocalypse really happen? What do you think?

Here's a hilarious video I found yesterday. A guy in Florida actually went out in public pretending to be a zombie, chasing people! I laughed my ass off at this, especially the black guys holding their stupid baggy ass pants up so that they could run.. and the ending is funny, too!

I Hate Having to Keep My Mouth Shut!

I'm the type of person that feels the need to make sure that someone knows when they are being an asshat. If I am treated rudely at a store or restaurant by an employee, I will either say something to them or talk to their manager about it. I've gotten in a few shouting matches with people in public because they were just being total twat waffles and they needed to know it! I can't stand people who are rude or out of line and I feel the need to tell them so!

I really hate it when I have to zip my lips and just keep my comments to myself. The most recent problem I've encountered is in the town we live in. We just moved here almost a year ago (just a few weeks away). It's a nice small town with a lot of rich people but most of them are very friendly. It's one of those towns where everyone knows everyone else and I have kind of felt like the outsider here. The town runs their own utilities and everything keeping them safe from having to follow any state or federal rules and regulations. As I said, most people in this town have a lot of money but if you drive around you can find plenty of people who are not so lucky (including us). My problem is with the utility people. Everything is all on one bill: water, electricity, and gas. We have had problems since we moved in. When we first moved in, we were getting charged outrageous water bills and when we questioned them about it, we were told that we must have had a leak. We had all new plumbing put in before we moved in, there was no leak. Ironically enough, the town was also putting in new water lines at the same time and we were told by other people who lived in this town that they were famous for passing their bill onto newcomers to the town. Surprisingly, when the water lines were finished, our bill went down drastically. When we asked about it again, the head woman at the utilities department told us that we must have gotten our leak fixed and that we were just lying about it! She actually called my husband a liar! They have no programs available for low income residents, no percentage of income program or anything like that. The head woman of the utilities department is the biggest bitch in town. She refuses to work with anyone and treats anyone who can't pay their bill like lazy pieces of shit even though my husband probably works physically harder in ONE day than that twat has ever in her life! It is taking everything I can not to go to their Facebook page and tell everyone about this rude bitch. I mean, she is downright rude. She has basically told us that she doesn't give a shit about our situation, our kids, or anything at all. She is also one of the "board" members of the town, so I feel that even if I did try to complain to anyone, it wouldn't get anywhere. It's to the point where we have actually discussed selling the house that we just bought last year and getting out of town.. but we really don't want to because it IS a nice town. I so badly want to call this bitch up and just go off on her.. but I'm sure that would backfire on me because she IS the one who runs the place and she can pretty much do whatever she wants to do to make our life Hell in this town.

There's also the issue of my kids' teachers. My daughter has a teacher whom I got into an argument with a few months ago about a stupid library fine. She stepped way out of line with some of the things she said and made me feel like shit. It's soo hard for me to not tell her what I really think about her but I'm sure word would travel fast and I don't want things to be any harder for my family or our kids.

It drives me crazy not to be able to put people in their place that deserve it. Honestly, I'm one of the nicest and most caring people that you will ever meet and that's why it pisses me off when people are so rude to me or any of my family because I don't raise my kids to be that way and I want to bitch slap anyone who IS that way.

How about you? Do you have to bite your tongue often?? Are you content with just zipping your lips and keeping your thoughts to yourself??

Time has Crossed the Line

I'm sure the majority of my readers have already seen the newest cover of Time magazine that is causing so much controversy. I refuse to post it in my blog and if you have not seen it yet, it shows a mother with her 3 yr old son sucking on her nipple. I found the photo absolutely disgusting.

I don't care if mothers choose to breastfeed or bottle feed. I think it is everyone's own personal choice and no one should judge anyone else for their own personal parenting decisions. This magazine cover goes beyond the argument between breastfeeding, bottle feeding, and attachment parenting. First of all, the kid looks like he is 5, not 3. You can tell that the kid feels awkward and uncomfortable just from the look on his face. Can you imagine what it must have been like for a kid that age to be standing in front of 345087345 people under bright lights and in front of big cameras being told to suck on his mommy's boob? What happens when he is 8? or 12 years old? He is going to be humiliated, teased, and tormented. I don't know why the mom did it, if she was trying to make a point or trying to boast that she is such a better parent than everyone else or what but I think she is disgusting for making her child do that. How much money did she make off of this?

Not to mention, that a 3 year old is too old to be breastfeeding!!!!!! It's just weird and creepy to me to see a big ass kid like that sucking on a nipple. A 3 year old should not have a bottle at that age let alone a real nipple! Some parents need to LET GO!! Let the kid grow up a little bit, he doesn't have to be attached to you 24/7. I think some mothers are taking the whole attachment parenting thing WAY too far. Let the kid have a little bit of independence, they will need it when they are grown because, believe it or not, they WILL grow up and leave the nest.. without you!!!!

I was hoping and praying that this magazine cover would at least be covered up in the grocery store so that my kids didn't have to see this photograph. Doesn't matter now though since Good Morning America decided to show the cover about 10 times on the TV this morning while my kids were getting ready for school. They saw it. They didn't say anything about it, but I saw the questioning looks in their eyes.

What do you think of the cover??

Is Facebook Your Right?

I recently heard that during job interviews, employers have been known to ask the interviewee to log into the Facebook account and let the employer view their private page. This has caused quite a debate on Facebook and most people agree with me that it is just plain wrong.

Yes, Facebook is a public social networking website but that is why there is the option of posting things as public or private. I have a sarcastic and crazy sense of humor. I post a lot of funny shit on Facebook. If I think that something could have the possibility of being offensive, I make it private because I know most of my friends will laugh just as hard as I do but some people may not. If I don't want strangers to know my private business, I make it private. It is MY right to choose who I wish to share what with.

I have heard of employers looking at people's Facebook pages and I guess I don't have a problem with that because they can see things that you decided to make public. If you made something public that is offensive or stupid, that's your own damned fault, but to make someone log into it and show an employer their private business? That is just wrong! It is no different than telling the person to hand over the cell phone so that you can read through their private text messages and look through their private photos.

I need a job but if someone asked me to log into my private Facebook page so that they could read everything, I would kindly tell them to fuck off! I don't want to work for someone that would nose into my private life that way. If they do that, what else will they snoop around in?? Or maybe I would ask them to let me look through their cell phone while they look through my Facebook page?? Everyone has their right to privacy and if they made their FB page private, no no one has the right to force you to let them read it!

Hiring someone should be based on how they carry themselves during the interview along with references and background checks..etc.. That's what they are for. Even though I may have a fucked up sense of humor, I know how to be professional and courteous when needed. Hiring or firing someone should be based on how they perform while they are on the clock not what they do in their own private personal time!

Have you heard of anyone being forced to log into their Facebook account? Has it happened to you? Thoughts??

Are You A Texting Addict??

I'm sure you all know one.. or maybe you ARE one? I'm talking about a text addict. Don't get me wrong, I love my cell phone and texting but after awhile, I get bored with texting. I can not sit for hours and hours texting. If I'm doing something important and my phone goes off, that text message can wait until I'm finished. When I'm driving, I don't text unless it's important.. but then I will call because it's easier to talk and drive than text and drive. It is not possible to have your eyes on your phone and the road ahead of you.. just because you have two eyes doesn't mean that they can both do two different things at once.

So what defines a texting addict? Someone who texts from the time they wake up until they go to bed at night. The ones who text while they are driving and swerve all over the road putting other people's lives in danger. A texting addict ignores everyone else around them because they are soo involved in their texting conversations. Or the annoying person at the store who isn't watching what they are doing or what their kids are doing because they are too busy texting.

"Anything that you can become obsessed with, and you do so much that you don't do the things you need to do with family, friends, school, job -- that can be an addiction. And texting absolutely can qualify," said Dr. Dale Archer, a clinical psychologist. 
And teenage girls lead the charge.

 My problem? I AM MARRIED TO A TEXTING ADDICT! A grown 34 year old man.. NOT a teenage girl! Since we have smartphones, not only is he texting, he is also chatting with people via Facebook chat on his phone.. alll.. the... time.... We try to watch something on TV together, he's not paying attention because he is texting. The kids are trying to ask him a question, he doesn't hear them because he is so involved in his text conversations. We are already having marital problems and one of the biggest problems is that I can't have a fucking conversation with my husband without being interrupted with text messages. He will IGNORE me to answer a text message. If I ask him a question, he will not answer ME until he answers his text messages. Texting is actually causing a huge problem in our marriage because he is so fucking obsessed. Texting seems to be his priority over his marriage and everything else. AND.. he texts while he drives.. all the fucking time. One day a few weeks ago, I was following him in a different car because his car had to go to the shop.. I could tell when he was texting because he would slow down and be swerving over the yelling line or would be driving practically in the grass. He texts and drives with me and our 3 children in the car. I've tried talking to him numerous times about it but of course he sees nothing wrong with it and I am just overreacting. I told him he is putting our kids' lives in danger, but he doesn't see it that way. He thinks he is a "pro" at texting and driving. There is no such fucking thing!! Some days, I just want to throw his fucking phone out the damned window. The other day, we were talking... and I asked him something but instead of answering me, he had to answer a text message. I said, "is that text message that fucking important?".. his response, "I'm in the middle of a conversation".. Me: No shit, I thought you were having a conversation with your WIFE!

Why do people become so obsessed with texting? When does texting take priority over other REAL live people in your life? Or when is texting more important than the safety of your own family? I seriously don't know what it's going to take to get him to realize that he has a problem. I am not going to be SECOND to fucking text messages. Fuck that. Oh, and he gives his number to just about everyone he meets so that they can text.  Why is texting soo important to people?

Do you know someone who is a texting addict? or are YOU one??

Parents and Trendy Kid Names

I heard on the news the other day that there is a big trend going on right now with new mothers naming their kids after characters from The Hunger Games and Beyonce's brat Ivy Bleu (blue?). God you people make me sick!!

I'm all for kids having unique names. I mean, come on, when I was in college, I knew like 10 people who all had a kid named Aiden or Ayden or whatever other version they could come up with for the name. Why would you want your kid to have the same name as 10 other kids in his class?? Help them to be unique!

But come on.. naming your kid after a new trendy movie (one which I refuse to watch, along with the whole Twilight series bullshit). And why, for god's sake, WHY would you want to name your kid after Beyonce's little brat? The one who shut down half of a hospital because she thinks her kid is soo much more important than alll of the babies in the NICU?? I seriously hope your kid gets beat up when he's older. Well, it really wouldn't be fair to to the kid but maybe YOU should just have your ass kicked. Why do stupid people think it's ok to raise children? I swear, dumbass people make me roll my eyes on a daily basis. Use that thing in your skull called a brain and start thinking for yourself instead of just going along with everyone else. That's boring.. and so are you.

Lauren Scruggs Chopping Her Own Hand Off....

In the mornings, while the kids are getting ready for school, I usually watch Good Morning America. I don't watch much news during the day so this is kind of my way of catching up on things going on in the world. I remember a few months ago hearing about a model named Lauren Scruggs who was taking a ride on a small airplane and when she got out of the plane she turned around right into the blades of the propeller and lost a hand and an eye. Of course, at first I thought it was a horrible thing to happen but I also thought how embarrassing it had to be for her to be a complete dumbass for the whole world to see. I mean, seriously, if I were that close to the blades, I'd damn sure make sure I stayed far away from them and knew exactly where they were! Made it funnier because she already looks like the typical airhead blonde model.

I hadn't heard about her for awhile until yesterday morning. They announced that she was in the middle of suing the pilot's insurance company. Then today they said that she settled out of court, and that the insurance company had originally offered her $200,000 (which she refused) but they offered her enough to get her to settle out of court and I'm sure it had to be quite a bit MORE than $200,000!

Why is this legal??? So anyone can be a complete dumbass and injure themselves because they weren't paying attention, and then GET money in return?? Who the fuck made up these dumbass laws? I mean, if I walked into propeller blades, I sure as Hell wouldn't expect to get money for it! She had already exited the plane! Why should the pilot's insurance have to pay her a dime and why the fuck does she think she DESERVES that much money???? Yeah, our judicial system is sooooo screwed up, ya think???

Do you think she deserves to get money??

Over Achieving Moms and Period Parties

Over achieving moms have been the subject of quite a few blog posts lately. What are over achieving moms? Well, these are the parents who spend thousands of dollars on their kids' first birthday party (which I always thought was stupid anyway.. the kid is 1 and has no idea wtf is going on!... save it til they are older and can enjoy it!). The ones that truly do treat their children as if they are a real Prince or Princess by spoiling them to the point of being sickening and disgusting. Some of these parents might as well wrap their little brats in bubble wrap and lock them in the basement before they realize what reality is!

I just came across a blog post about parents hosting period parties. No, I'm not talking about the little dot on the end of a sentence, I'm talking about when a girl starts bleeding out of her hoo-ha. Parents are now using the first period as a reason to throw a party and show off to their friends what "great" parents they are.

First of all, why would you want to do this to a teenage girl? I remember when I got my period. Yes, I was a little excited because it meant I was "grown up" but it was also embarrassing, painful, and downright gross (it still is!). Why the Hell would you want your mommy to run and tell the whole town that you got your period? Do these mothers have such very low self esteem that they have to try to make themselves feel better by throwing a party for every single thing that happens to their child? Hey, a tooth fell out; PARTY! Hey, he wiped his own butt: PARTY! Hey, she can write her name: PARTY!

This goes right along with my Dumb Babies post. Guess what, over achieving mamas? Every girl gets her period! Your daughter isn't that special that she made blood shoot out of her coochie. Your daughter getting her period does not make you some all-star mom. You didn't grow some super genius brain child in your womb.

What are these over achieving moms doing to their kids? Are they teaching them how to be responsible? Hmm, no. Are they teaching them what is important in life? Probably not. Are they teaching them to be conceited annoying little brats that are sooo full of themselves that they will probably get beat up on regular basis when they get older?? Hmm, yeah, I'm thinking so.

Try just being a parent. A good parent. A parent their teaches their kids right from wrong. A parent that teaches their kid to have respect for everyone else. A parent who teaches their kid to treat everyone equally. Take a look at your priorities and flip them upside down or else get your head out of your ass so that you can see them properly. Idiots.

Name Brands for Great Prices

I love to shop, especially when I can find a good bargain on name brands that I am really wanting. I really enjoy being able to shop from the comfort of my home instead of going out and dealing with people in stores. I'm really a little anti-social and much prefer to spend time with myself than with strangers!

I was looking for some football cleats cheap for my son and searched online for the best price. An online friend suggested They have all sorts of name brand items for cheaper than what you can typically find them in a retail store anywhere around here.

A friend of mine collects vases and I was looking to find bud vases cheap and I got lucky while browsing for my son's shoes, I came across some great prices on vases as well. My friend loved the gift and she proudly displays it among the rest of her vase collection.

My mother has diabetes and one thing she really struggles with is the cost of meter strips. I got her a great price on chipblood glucose test strips and she was so happy. Now she can better afford to take care of herself like she needs to.

I'm definitely going to do more shopping here. I love finding a good deal on things that I love!

Crying over Facebook Timeline

Seriously, the person who made this..............

... is a fucking idiot.

Ok, so if you are on Facebook, you can't really miss all of the bitching about the new timeline layout. Some people love it, others hate it. I personally like it. It's different and you can personalize it a little more than you could with the old layout. Come on though people, shut the fuck up! I'm sooo sick and tired of hearing people bitch and moan about how Facebook better not make them switch to the timeline or they will leave the site. Really??  Facebook is FREE. You do not pay for it.. it's all free. Free for you to upload photos to, free for you to network with, free for you to find old friends that you may have never found before, free for you to share music or videos, free for you to say what you want.. it's all FREE! Stop your fucking complaining! Some of these people whine worse than my 7 year old daughter. It's freaking annoying. Suck it up and put on your big girl (or boy) panties and fucking deal with it! No one is forcing you to stay, you are free to go. Stop being so damned dramatic over a freakin' website that is FREE!!! Facebook has come a long way from the beginning. Yeah, sometimes it's not working properly, but they usually get it figured out. No one is perfect .. and Zuckerberg isn't going to lose his millions or billions just because you decide to leave. Do you really think he's going to be crying over it?

I know most people don't like change. I don't like change either much.. but sometimes change is for the better. Yeah, maybe it's not right that they are forcing everyone to switch to the timeline, but I'm sure they have their reason as to WHY they are doing it. Don't you have anything better to bitch about, people? You are fucking annoying, now shut the fuck up!!

Bullies and School Shootings

I'm sure by now, most of you have heard about the most recent school shooting in Ohio. Ohio is my home state so it hit close this time. I know that all of these school shootings are sad and a horrible thing, but part of me understands.

I understand what it's like to be teased and taunted. I know what it's like to hear the jokes being said behind my back as if I were deaf and couldn't hear them. I know what it's like to hear people laughing knowing that they are laughing at me. School was Hell for me at times and I tried everything I could to get out of going to school because of it.

What caused this kid to snap? Most times, the shooter is the one who was bullied. The loner of the school that kept to himself with just a few close friends. The one that everyone thought was weird and made the perfect target for their jokes.

Not everyone who is bullied starts shooting randomly at school but I think if someone is already on the edge, whether it be with depression or mental stability, all of the teasings would cause anyone to explode. I admit it, I used to dream about there REALLY being a bomb inside of my school (we had a lot of bomb threats in school) and the school blew up while I watched it with all of the fucktards in it.

What do people get out of bullying? Does bullying make them feel superior and better about themselves? To degrade another person boosts their self esteem? Who gets enjoyment out of hurting someone's feelings? Who thinks it's funny to tease and call people names? Where are the parents who should have taught their children from a young age NOT to be a bully and to treat everyone equally? That was YOUR responsibilities, parents. It is your responsibility to teach your kids to treat everyone the same and to not discriminate against someone that is a little different. Do your fucking job and teach your kid how to be a good person. OH wait, you were probably an asshat in school, too. Assholes raise assholes, I guess.

Yes, these kids should be punished for killing others but I think we need to figure out what exactly pushed them to that point?

I'm glad that schools are becoming more strict when it comes to bullying. The school my kids are in has a great no bullying policy. Not all schools have adopted these rules though and too many teachers just turn the other cheek when they see bullying going on. Sometimes, teachers need to step in, too, instead of just ignoring the problem.

If you were never teased in school, you will never understand.

I love that movie, btw!

Why Being Sick Sucks!!

I roll my eyes every time someone posts on Facebook saying, "I hate being sick!". I always want to comment with, "does anyone ever LIKE being sick?". It's flu and cold season right now and there seems to be a lot of miserable souls these days including myself. I have a sinus infection that has been keeping me down for the last few days. 

I have decided to make a list of exactly WHY being sick sucks ass and the worst things about being sick? 

  1. Your nose is all stuffed up and is also running at the same time. You can't breathe and you have to constantly wipe your nose. How many of you just stuff a tissue up your nose hole because you get tired of wiping it??
  2. The throbbing headache that comes along with a head cold or sinus infection. The one that begins to throb every time you move.
  3. Wheezing and breathing hard whenever you do anything that requires a tiny bit of exertion. You are breathing like someone who has been smoking for over 30 years and is 100 pounds over weight!
  4. Sleeping with your mouth open because you can't breathe. Worrying about spiders crawling in your mouth. Then waking up with your tongue stuck to the roof of your mouth making you crave a glass of water.
  5. That annoying cough. The one that starts out as a little tickle in your throat that won't go away. You keep swallowing hoping to get rid of it, but it never works. Then you cough your freakin head off which makes your head throb, your sides hurt, your throat hurt, and then you almost puke from coughing so hard. This coughing fit always seems to occur when you are speaking to someone important or are somewhere out in public. 
  6. Sounding like a 50 year smoker when you talk or cough. 
  7. Taking a bunch of medications trying to ease the symptoms of a cold because there is NO cure for a cold, just medications to help alleviate the symptoms. Usually though, no matter how much medication you take, and how much money you spend, it usually doesn't do much for you.
  8. The fatigue. The one that makes you feel like a zombie along with the throbbing sinus headache and you don't want to do anything but lay around and take good drugs that help you sleep. Nothing usually gets done around the house and then you have to either drag yourself to work or lose out on the money (unless you are one of the lucky ones who get sick pay).  Once you finally feel better, you have to make up for all of the lost time. 
  9. Loss of taste. Yeah, when your nose is so clogged up you lose your sense of taste. Everything tastes like cardboard. This usually makes you just not want to eat at all, then once you get your taste back, you want to eat everything in sight!

What about the stomach bug?

  1. The horrible churning cramp in your stomach that can have you bent over in pain.
  2. When the smell of anything brings you close to vomiting.
  3. Vomiting. Ugh. Especially when it comes out of your nose!!!
  4. Vomiting and diarrhea... at the same time.. 'nuff said.

............ I did get the flu shot this year. This is the first time I've ever gotten one. A typical winter consists of me being sick every few weeks. So far, since Fall, I've had a couple of sinus infections and one stomach bug, but no serious debilitating colds. I think I'm going to start getting a flu shot every year. Everyone hates being sick!

Beach Fishing

Guest post written by my buddy Brian Workman

My favorite thing to do, that I don't get to do very often, is spend a day at the beach. I love the smell of the salty air and the feeling of the breeze blowing my hair. It brings back memories of when I was a child and my parents used to take us there. We would all pile in dad's old trusty station wagon and head down to the public beach for a nice say trip. Now that life has become so busy, I rarely get time just to visit the beach anymore. My father used to pay a nickle for us to walk out on the pier and we would watch people catch massive stingrays and sharks. Just the other day on Direct TV Jersey, on one of those fishing shows, I saw a man catch a shark like the ones we used to see. They were fishing out of a boat though, not off a pier. They would hook one of these mammoth creatures and struggle for hours to reel him in.

Woah! Is Whitney Houston DEAD???

Saturday night, my mom texted me asking if Whitney Houston was dead? I had been gone all day and didn't know anything about it. Then she texted back to tell me it was true and that she read it on one of the news websites. A little bit later, I logged onto Facebook and had literally 15 statuses on my news feed about her death, and it has been non stop ever since (it's now Monday night). Do people really care so much about a stranger???

Yes, Whitney was stunningly beautiful back in her day along with her voice. Some of her songs are legendary songs that almost everyone in the world knows. But, really, why do people care so much if she's dead?? She let herself get involved with Bobby Brown, it was her own prerogative (heh, I know!)! She turned into a coked out crack head who couldn't survive life sober. She was no longer elegant or beautiful; she turned into a trashy ghettoo ass bitch who thought she was still superior. *teh*

Sooo shut up about her!!!!! We all knew it had something to do with drugs. No, she wasn't your best friend, you never even met her. She wasn't a relative of yours. She croaked. So what? It's not as if she was continuing to even produce good music. She could have had the world in her hands if she was just strong enough to say no. Sad? Yes. Do I care? No.

Keep Your Dogs Under Control

I think most states have a leash law don't they? This means that if your dog is out of the house, it needs to either be in a secured fence or on a leash. Sooo, why is it that so many people just let their dogs run all over BFE?

I understand that some dogs like to escape and take off running. I had a dog when I was a kid that would sneak out and would be gone for hours. When that happens, it's an accident. I'm talking about people who deliberately let their dogs out free to roam wherever they want. I can understand if they live out in the country and the dog stays on the property, that's one thing... but in town is another.

First of all, when you let your dog run free he or she is running around in allll of your neighbors' yards, pooping and peeing in the grass, driving other dog's nuts which results in their dogs barking, getting into trash spreading it all over, stealing things from people's yard, and maybe even getting another dog knocked up or vice versa. Do you really think your neighbors want to deal with that shit?

At our old house, these people across the street had a beautiful blue eyed husky that they just let run all over the neighborhood. If we were outside, this dog would stand there and just bark at us.. and bark.. and bark. We didn't know if he could become aggressive or not and I didn't exactly feel safe with a strange dog being around my kids. Usually after an hour or so of the barking, the neighbors would come out and get him and act as if he got out accidently.. even though it happened almost every day. Our dog would also go crazy when that dog was around and wouldn't stop barking.

Not only is your loose dog annoying everyone in the fucking neighborhood, you are also putting your dog in danger. Most dogs don't know to look both ways before crossing the street. They could be hit and injured or killed, not to mention, if they cause an accident, YOU are the one responsible for the damages because YOU didn't keep your dog under your control.

There are some really sick people out there that may do something to hurt a dog, especially if it is shitting in their yard all the time. There are sick fucks out there that will intentionally poison or hurt a dog, not to mention try to steal it.

Don't be a fucking dumbass. If you own a dog, take care of it!! You wouldn't let your 2 yr old wander all over the neighborhood by himself would you? Why let your dog? A dog doesn't always understand what things are safe and what things are dangerous. Plus, if someone calls the dog warden on your dog, YOU will be in trouble and will probably be forced to pay a fine, and if the dog causes any damage anywhere, YOU will be the responsible one! If your dog runs out in front of a car and the car slams on their brakes and the car behind them runs into the car and kills someone, that would be on your shoulders. Its happened.

Stop pissing off your neighbors and putting your dog in danger. Thank you.

Dumb Babies

We all love our kids (well, most of us anyway) and like to brag about them. We all think our children are the cutest, smartest, best kids in the whole entire world, don't we? One reason I don't really blog about my children very often is that I get tired of reading about everyone else's kids that I don't know, why would I expect anyone to care about MINE when they don't even know me in person or my kids??

When someone is talking about their baby, the thing I always hear the most is, "oh, little Rosie is just so smart!". It makes me want to yell, "NO, SHE'S NOT!". Because guess what? For the majority of people, your baby is no different than the other 45081745 kids in the world. Yes, kids all learn and do things at different times, but unless there is something wrong with them, they all do it eventually!! Your kid is not that damned special and you didn't create some freakin' genius baby unless your child is in the gifted class. Your baby has not conquered some huge feat just because he knows the letter A or knows that a cat says meow. Whoooptyfreakindoo!!!!! and really, no one else cares about your little demon child unless they are related or real life friends. Of course, you may get the, "awww, she's so cute" comments, but that person probably doesn't really give a shit that your kid pooped in the potty at 3am this morning or that he can pick his nose and hide the booger under the kitchen table. Kids are kids are kids! Little 12 and 13 year olds are creating babies, yours isn't that special. I know we would all like to think that are children are amazingly special and will be be a star one day, but guess what? That rarely happens. Shut up about your kid and give me something interesting to read and/or talk about!

Why I Hate Censorship

The internet has been abuzz about the government wanting to pretty much censor what we say or do on the internet. If they do this, they will be taking away our freedom of speech and the freedom to be who we really are and say what we really feel!!

Why do I hate censorship so much? Well, I don't like to be told what I can and cannot say, what I can and can not read, or what I can and can not listen to. Why should just one person or even a few people have the right to choose what is right and wrong for millions of people? Just because one person is offended by something, does not mean that everyone else in the world feels the same way.

Who cares about curse words? If you do, then you need to get the carrot out of your ass and lighten up. Words are words. Who all of the sudden decided that it was OK for someone to see butt, but not ass? To say,  poop, instead of shit? Ok, you can say sexual intercourse but you can't say Fuck! Why not? What makes one word so much worse than another when it means the same thing? Who decided which words are bad and which ones are alright??

I don't get offended easily, but a lot of people do. Guess what? Not everyone in the world agrees with you. Relax and enjoy life. I don't know if this is true or not, but I just heard of a school that changed their mascot of a Cougar, because they didn't want to offend older women. Seriously? I hope this was fake, but come on, people bitch about anything. I think some people enjoy bitching and complaining or causing drama. Maybe it makes them feel superior, who knows? People get offended way too easily.

Many Siblings

Written by my friend Constance Hayden

Having so many brothers and sisters meat that as I was growing up I never got to choose anything. I didn’t get to pick my seat at the table and I didn’t get to choose where we went on vacation and I certainly didn’t get to pick what we watched on TV. All that to say that now that I’m an adult I want to make sure I’m getting EVERYTHING I never had and that means about a bazillion channels from I love going home and knowing the remote is all mine and that I can watch Gold Rush or the news or even Jeopardy if I want. I just don’t understand why people like my parents would have so many kids but I guess at the end of the day there are definite advantages to having such a large family. I really love all my siblings and it’s nice that one day my future kids will have lots of aunts and unclesto play with!

Phrases and Words That Annoy Me

As some of you may know by now, I get annoyed very easily. No, I don't think I'm perfect, but I know that there are a lot of fucking idiots in this world that don't even deserve to share the same air as I breathe! There are certain sayings or words that just make me roll my eyes and think, "you f'n dumbass, just don't talk any more!" Here are a few examples:

Baby Daddy/Baby Mama

Ok, first of all, it just sounds fucking dumb. Learn some proper English instead of sounding like some ghetto ass stripper who spreads her legs for every guy who gives her a dollar bill and just happened to get knocked up in the meantime (same goes for guys who say, "my baby mama"). Get your tubes tied or your balls chopped off now before you create any more human lives and teach them your same ignorant bullshit.

Ohh Emm Geeee

Not, Oh My God, but saying the actual letters, O---M---G. It's one thing if you are typing and just putting OMG to save time, but are you that lazy that you can't even say the god damned words? You sound like some annoying ass teenager diva wanna be, or a "valley girl" as we used to call them back in my day. I seriously want to punch you in your glitter covered face.


Instead of the word, "with" they say or type "wit". Really? Is the letter H too much for you to comprehend? U iz not from da ghetto, so stop talkin like you iz! I deleted a "friend" off of my Facebook page for just this reason. I was friends with her when we were kids, then one day she added my on FB, ok, cool, but we never chatted or caught up on anything. Her status updates seriously made me want to strangle her through my computer. She is a white woman in her mid 30s with a grown 18 year old son and 2 other children, talking like dis! I couldn't handle it any more and had to delete her before I went off on her, and I really hate facebook drama; it's too much effort to argue with dumbasses.


Were you born in America? Did you take English classes? Or do you just like sounding like an ignorant fucktard who doesn't know how to say the "th" sound? Don't they usually send kids to speech class for that?? I seriously want to go grab a spork from KFC and shove it in your eye every time you say this!!
