Blessed Samhain to All!!

On this wonderful day, I'd like to start by saying a very happy anniversary to my beloved hubby. I can't believe it's been two years since we jumped the broom and I still love you more and more every day. I really found someone as wierd as me to spend my life with and I'm so grateful I can't even begin to express it in words. A toast to you, my sweet.




For everyone else out there in blogland, I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Get lots of candy, dress up crazy and enjoy yourselves! And happy new year to all the pagans!!!

Love you guys!

Got My First Paycheck! :)

Just had to share with everyone that I finally got my first paycheck in the mail yesterday. I was so happy and relieved that I burst into tears and B hung it on the wall of the office so I can admire it. I can't tell you guys what a big deal this is!!! Love you all! :)

Okay. Here we go...

1. IF you can afford to go out to eat... But you can't afford to tip... hey.. guess what.. you can't afford to go out to eat.

2. This is 2006 people. 10% is not acceptable anymore... standard tipping for GOOD service is between 18 and 20%...

3. Now. I understand that 10% is good enough for God... That's fine.. but this isn't church.. and you're not tithing.

4. PS- ordering a well done steak... which everyone in the south does... will constitute a longer ticket time.... you will be okay... if you wanted fast food, you should have gone through a fucking drive-thru...

5. It's really not necessary to snap at me or wave your hand in the air like your having a spasm or get up and follow me. I saw you, I acknowledged you, you saw me... hold the fuck on. and sit the fuck down. I am comi…

Yay Progress! :)

HRC STATEMENT ON NEW JERSEY SUPREME COURT DECISION RECOGNIZING SAME-SEX COUPLES' CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO EQUAL BENEFITS AND PROTECTIONS

WASHINGTON - Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese made the following statement regarding today's ruling in Lewis v. Harris - a court case in which the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to receive the same state benefits, protections, and obligations as opposite-sex married couples. The court ruled that the legislature must either amend its marriage law to include same-sex couples or provide these benefits, protections, and obligations by some other means such as civil unions.

Said Solmonese:

"Today, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples should have the same rights and obligations as heterosexual couples. This is, at its cor…

The Secret to Success

Happily stolen from FeelinFroggy's myspace bulletin...

To succeed at anything, you have to want it. But most people overlook this simple fact. And when they are confronted about the fact that their actions suggest that they don't really want to succeed, they get very depressed. They believe there is something wrong with them. But there is nothing wrong with them. All they need is for their level of desire to get a tune-up. Anyone can do it. Every day I see proof of that.

Your level of want-to is totally within your control. It doesn't exist by itself. You are in charge of its intensity. You can turn the flame up or down any time you want.

But most people don't realize that one's desire to succeed isn't a permanent thing; they think it's some character flaw or personality trait in them when they aren't driven to succeed. But it's not. Desire and intention are living, growing, ever-changing energy sources inside you. You can learn to continuously grow th…

Had a Wonderful Weekend! :)

We did so much stuff this weekend that it deserves its own blog post...

Friday night we saw Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D. Ohmigawd, everyone MUST see this film in its reissue...they added depth to the entire movie and it was most impressive! We'll definitely be seeing it again as a group if anyone wants to come with. Let us know! :)

Saturday morning I got up early and Brian, Keith and I walked in the Race For the Cure. We did the 5K which equates to 3.1 miles and oh boy was I ever tired! Still tho, it was for a good cause and we raised over $500 as a team. Go us! :)

Saturday night we went to Panoptikon at Club One and had a blast! Zaber was back out and it was awesome to see her. I was supposed to have been doing stripper training for a friend of Lil Bro's but she didn't make it out. Ah well, her loss. :)

Over the weekend, Our Thia had an issue with her jaw that landed her in the emergency room. She had a major dental thing a couple of months ago and was on the road to rec…

Where's Jen Been?

I'm alive! LOL! I know it's been weeks since my last update post and I do apologize for that. I've had to do a total work submerssion to get things rolling and it seems to be happening...

I've been working all the time the last few weeks with clients in from out of town and lots of stuff going locally. I've finally had a couple of closings and even though I *still* have no paycheck because there was a paperwork issue, I know one is coming soon. I've been getting my office organized and my internal office systems flowing better and it's starting to feel like a groove. I'm also getting my schedule a little more set so I'll have time for myself, which is a blessing.

I've achieved some sort of rock star status at my company which is totally wierd for me. Apparently I'm doing better than any other rookie at this company and someone noticed, so now everyone's asking me what my secret is. I've got not just my team, but a couple of other team…

Feel Good About Your Choices!

I'm ganking this from FeelinFroggy's myspace bulletin and thought it was totally worth sharing...

"You have more to do than you can possibly do. You just need to feel good about your choices."

- David Allen

Victims are victims of their own to-do lists. They make the list up, stare at the multitude of tasks to be done, and feel overwhelmed. They think to themselves, "I have more to do than I can possibly get done." That thought alone acts as a central nervous system depressant. Just thinking "I have more to do than I can possibly get done" causes the victim to lose energy. Soon a huge sense of overwhelm and fatigue sets in. Consciousness clouds over. Weariness and depression set in. The victim looks back down at the list and picks it up in a limp hand and then tosses it down. When someone peeks in at the victim and says, "Gotta minute?" the victim says, "Of course." Now the victim talks for twenty minutes about something not even o…

Musical Instruments needed for New Orleans Students

Reposted from Jewels' myspace bulletin:

Musical Instruments for New Orleans Students
Note From Marcia Ball

Dear Friends,

The school across the street from Charmaine Neville's house in New Orleans has finally re-opened. They need musical instruments. If you have or know someone who has an unused band instrument in good repair, please contact me at this email address.

Also, if you could forward this to your lists and spread the word, I'd appreciate it. You never can tell who played flute in high school and still has one under the bed. We'll pick them up or they can be dropped off at my office. We are going to New Orleans in December and will take whatever we gather then.

If an instrument is located in another area, NOLA Relief may be able to help with shipping and the instrument could be sent directly to Charmaine. Donations of money would also be appreciated and then we could send our pawnshop crew out to work their magic.

The need, like the beat, goes on. If we were buried un…

Farewell to an NYC Staple... :-(

Got this from one of my email groups this morning...this is just sad and tragic!

CBGBs Goes Out of Business

NEW YORK - Legs McNeil remembers the night back in 1975 when he walked into the dingy storefront club perched in the even dingier Bowery neighborhood. The band onstage, four guys in leather jackets and torn jeans, was the Ramones. McNeil sat at a nearby table, watching their set with Lou Reed.

It was unforgettable. But as McNeil would soon discover, it was just a typical night at CBGB's, the club that spawned punk rock while launching the careers of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Blondie, the Talking Heads and the Ramones.

"Every night was memorable, except I don't remember 'em," said a laughing McNeil, co-author of the punk rock history "Please Kill Me."

After Sunday, memories are all that will remain when the cramped club with its capacity of barely 300 people goes out of business after 33 years. Although
its boom years are long gone, CBGB's…

Who's Yo Daddy? ;-)

Here's something that Billy found and forwarded over...ohmigawd, people scare me sometimes! LOL!

The following are all replies that Baltimore, Maryland women have written on Child Support Agency forms in the section for listing "father's details". Or putting it another way... "Who's yo Daddy!!? "

These are genuine excerpts from the forms.

1. Regarding the identity of the father of my twins, child A was fathered by Jim Munson. I am unsure as to the identity of the father of child B, but I believe that he was conceived on the same night.

2. I am unsure, as to the identity of the father of my child as I was being sick out of a window when taken unexpectedly from behind. I can provide you with a list of names of men that I think were at the party if this helps.

3. I do not know the name of the father of my little girl. She was conceived at a party at 3600 Grand Avenue where I had unprotected sex with a man I met that night. I do remember that the sex was so go…

For the Star Trek Fans... :)

Here's a little something that Eric found and sent over. They made a great video for NIN's Closer out of old Star Trek clips showing sexual tension between Kirk and Spock. Definitely worth checking out! LOL!

What's That Jenni-girl Doing Now?

Yes, children, it's very early in the morning but I thought I'd better get a quick update blog in before I have to start my work day. Here's what's been going on in the world of Jen...

Last Friday night we had the opportunity to go hang out with some friends in Wylie. We had a home-cooked meal (awesome!) and did sort of a "family night" thing with a dear friend, her roommate, and her 6-year-old kidling. It was totally laid back and unfortunately for me I was just about too damned tired to really enjoy myself. Mostly I ended up struggling to stay awake during the event and trying not to be grumpy because I was over tired. :-(

The reason I was so over tired is because I worked too much last week. I showed 55 houses in 5 days which is ridiculously excessive even for a workaholic like me. I had clients in from out of town and we had three days to find them THE house which I think we actually might have, btw. In the future I'll know better than to schedule other…

All About Pets. :)

Here's a little something that My Thia sent along. Ain't it the truth?? ;-)

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note: placing a paw print in the middle of my plate of food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize spa…

Time for Another Jen Update

Okay you guys, I know it's about that time so here I go with another fascinating installment in the life of Jen. :)

We got Lil Bro's birthday all taken care of last weekend. He went to the Stars game Friday night (the 22nd) with a friend and ended up having a hillarious story to tell. He got the tickets from a family friend who won them at work and they were 11th row center ice. He and his buddy were acting goofy (as Lil Bro is inclined to do from time to time...) whenever the musical interludes came up and would do silly chair dances to the songs. They ended up getting so carried away with this that the Jumbo-tron operator noticed them and they got put up on the big screen. They noticed themselves chair dancing up on the monitor and were completely amused and hammed it up big time for the cameras. After what seemed like a while, he realized that they were still up there and someone yelled to them to stand up. When they did the entire American Airlines Center cheered and they d…
