Merry Gentry

I have been reading this series for a little while now and I must say... Looooove IT! So we have a Fairy Princess who is still going through all of the drama before her "Happily Ever After." Oh, and don't forget, she is totally having sex with anything that might meet her fancy, so she can bring magic back - She's bringin magic back (yeah) them other fairies don't know how to act (yeah). Okay, enough JT.

If any one reading this needs to get some Hott back in their life pick up a Merry Gentry book by Laurell K. Hamilton. Cause let me tell you... Whoo! That shit is fire. I really enjoy series books because I like to get really involved in the character's lives. I also really hate series books, cause then I have to wait... and wait... and w a i t... aghhhh. Stupid authors can't just spit the whole series out at once so I can read it and be done. I truly hate the waiting part can you tell? Anyways... I know there are other sites out there dedicated to the subject of specific books, or series' but I like to read all kinds of stuff, so this is not what will ever happen here. However, I will come back to these books whenever the next one comes out because that is how I roll.

Now, I won't be doing a report or anything like that, all I have to say is that if you enjoy reading romance novels (yay smut) but also happen to like to read books with action, mystery and substance (yay thinking) AND you happen to particularly enjoy reading just because (yay escape) you can have all three in these books. I like to call them cake. Cause you get all the important things (eggs, milk, flour) and all the extra things (butter & sugar) and together they make a really wonderful treat - CAKE.

So go out and pick one of these up (they're in order on the first link) and have yourself a little birthday celebration (you can even use the candles later when you're all heated up and stuff).


Digital T.V.

I am so tired of hearing the PSA's for the change over to Digital Broadcasting that are playing, oh, I don't know, at least every hour on every "free" channel in my neck of the woods. Um... these PSA's have been airing since early this year. Now, I'm not sure if these companies think every one is completely stupid, or they just don't kow that every one has seen them. But either way... I AM SO TIRED OF THEM! yeah, it's that bad. Now for anyone who hasn't seen one, but for some reason reads this blog - here you go -

I can't find any from our area, but I can see how this would be equally annoying. (although at least she's a cute lil ole Lady) I just thought I'd share the pain. Have any of you still not gotten your box, new T.V. or whatever new direction you are going?

Wake Up Alone

Yeah since I am at a total loss for words I give you this -

Crack-smoking, coke-sniffing, liquor-drinking, and whatever other derogatory things you can come up with can't compete with this voice. If I think about this song too much, I hurt.

Also I love this one -

Thank you for putting up with my lazy. Also enjoy my vocal crush. Who are your favorite voices to listen to...


Just call me "Slacker"

I know I haven't posted in a while, and really there is no good excuse, HOWEVER, I will offer up the only one I have. For anyone out there reading this and doesn't know me, I am LAZY. I am fully aware of this, and I try to work around it most of the time, but it catches up to me occasionally. I also have the added benefit of being a perfectionist on top of the lazy. This together means that if I can't do a job 'perfectly' I just don't do it. I can't allow myself to half-ass anything. I'm not sure what the term is for that, but I think it's just cause I'm lazy. The less things I can do to my own standards the less I have to do. YAY! Only really not so yay when I need to get things done that I know won't meet my standards. I have found that if someone comes over to help, I don't mind so much how things get done cause, I didn't do it all, so I don't need the perfection. Yeah, does that mean I am enabling myself? Hm...

So the real reason I haven't posted anything is not because I couldn't do it to my standard, but just cause I'm lazy. Okay this is not even the post I want to put up, but I'll leave it here just so anyone that wants to know, can.

As an aside, a friend of mine and I were singing karaoke online at her house the other night and it was a total nerdy blast! If you really want to you can check us out here.



All of the posts on costumes and I forgot to take a picture of me, Lu (my daughter) or Jonez. I did get pictures of some of the costumes that I either helped on or did all of.
This is DJ, she decided she wanted to be a dead Prom Queen, so she dug through her closet and found the dress she hated the most, and we destroyed it. She also thought that it would look cooler if she wore it backwards like her neck had been twisted all the way around. So we stuffed the front of the dress and flattened her front. I think if you click on the picture you can see better. The dress has been stained and ripped and all manner of degradation.
This is her front but the back of the costume. We had a grand old time ripping her bow, and tearing her sleeves. She told me getting a good tire tread across her dress was kind of a bitch though. They had to paint the tire with black paint then roll over the dress. Also since this dress was made of some kind of non stainable material they had to paint the blood & dirt on. Rolling around in the mud didn't do a thing once the dress was dry.
This here is Caca, she was going to be a "hoodlum" but we talked her into beeing a Zombie - much more in the spirit of things don't you think? We stabbed and stomped and stained this shirt and pants combo to it's current glory. Oh and I guess if you look closely you can see my daughter's head in this picture. I guess I'll have to make her put her dress on just so I can get a good picture of it.

This is Grandma, she wanted to be half man, half woman. We went good willing and found a pair of pants & skirt to go with this color shirt, Then I sewed them together. Then I made the shirt more girly on one side and added pearls & a tie. She did her hair and make-up the morning of Halloween so she could wear the costume to work.

And last but not least we have - Wonder Woman. This costume was a pain, but it turned out so good I can't complain too much. You can't really see her cape here, but she did a really good job on it. Also not seen are her super stripper boots. They are here if you want to see them.

So you can see the pictures better, just click on them, I had to do all kinds of weird stetching and stuff so they would fit on the page properly.
Now I know I shouldn't be so disappointed but, I really wish I had remembered to get pictures of our little family and not just the members of our bigger family. Oh and the animals did a fine job with all of the people running around in costumes.
