How did we survive? ;-)

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's !!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.

Riding in the back of a pickup on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, twinkies, white bread and real butter and drank soda pop with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!

We would leave home in …

For all the serial killer fans out there

This is far too amusing not to share...

I loves me a serial killer! :)

RIP my computer...

So I go to get on the computer this morning and it can't seem to find the hdd. I will not be making any attempt to blog until I'm back up and running at home. Hopefully I'll be able to get it sorted out over the holiday weekend. I will have limited access to my personal email from work for anyone that needs/wants to get a hold of me. Everyone think happy thoughts that it's the hdd controller and not the drive itself! Hope everyone has a better day than me. :)

Happy Birthday Tommy!

Warm birthday wishes to the man that taught me to smoke...

Out of the mouths of babes...

Here's a little joke for everyone on this Tuesday...thanks to my friend Chris for sending this to me. You gotta love kids!

A mother and father take their 6-year old son to a nude beach. As the boy walks along the sand, he notices that many of the women have boobs bigger than his mother's, so he goes back to ask her why.

She tells her son, "The bigger they are, the sillier the lady is."

The boy, pleased with the answer, goes to play in the ocean but returns to tell his mother that many of the men have larger things than his dad does.

She replies, "The bigger THEY are, the dumber the man is."

Again satisfied with her answer, the boy goes back to the ocean to play. Shortly thereafter, the boy returns again, and promptly tells his mother:

"Daddy is talking to the silliest lady on the beach, and the longer he talks, the dumber he gets."

New Shoe Styles for Spring from Japan

Okay so everyone knows that I'm a shoe hound and I absolutely adore fetish shoes so I couldn't resist posting this. How fuckin sexy are these bad boys???

Yes, I am alive!

Another couple of weeks has flown by me and I'm not even sure I'll be able to remember everything that has happened...I'm going to give it a helluva try tho so bear with me.

We celebrated Mother's Day in style by taking our respective mom-types out for a late lunch the Saturday of that weekend to La Madeleine. Other than the fact that B's mom couldn't resist bringing an entourage with her, it was fun and we enjoyed having all our moms in one place. Honestly I think Rita was a little embarassed that she didn't understand the invite and actually apologized to us for bringing people with her...*gasp* Check out the pix from that event at:

Mother's Day outing

We ended that day by going over to Brian and Casey's after lunch and stayed until the wee hours of Sunday morning. It was *wonderful* to see them and we actually got to meet the infamous Riley who is all about being two years old and quite a character. It feeds my heart to know that they're only 30…

What is Your World View?

I know it's been a while since I posted but I couldn't pass up posting this quiz and my results. Hope all is well with everyone!

You scored as Idealist. Idealism centers around the belief that we are moving towards something greater. An odd mix of evolutionist and spiritualist, you see the divine within ourselves, waiting to emerge over time. Many religious traditions express how the divine spirit lost its identity, thus creating our world of turmoil, but in time it will find itself and all things will again become one.

Happy Mom's Day

Here's something for all the motherly-types out there!

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby ...

Somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, "Normal," is history.

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct ...

Somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.

Somebody said being a mother is boring ...

Somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.

Somebody said if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out good." ...

Somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.

Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their voices ...

Somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball through the neighbor's kitchen window.

Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother ...

Somebody never helped a fourth grader with her math.

Somebody said you can't love the fifth child as much as you…

I guess I'm sleeping too much

I have no idea why I woke up around 4:30 this morning but I made myself go back to sleep til 5:30 which is a semi-reasonable time to wake up for me. Don't get me wrong, it's still friggin early but at least it's within an hour of the time that I normally drag out of bed. Gives me time to write a little bit here so it's all good. :)

I feel like we've been running at a full sprint lately with our crazy social life. Heh, now that I'm permanent at work and we've got a little extra money in our budget, I'm out of control with the plans. I'd say that I need to slow down but I'm really enjoying feeling like I have a life again. When I was at Long Beach we had money but I had no time or energy to go spend it...this is *way* better!

I got to see Brian last weekend which was *awesome*! Casey never did answer my calls so I'm just going to wait for her to call me...or not...whatever she decides. I managed to get my feelings really hurt around it over the …
