In staying with Linda’s theme, I agree!  It’s good to have friends who share your sick sense of humor.

“Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.” ~ George Eliot

On This Day 10/30/18

… you’ve heard this before so I’ll be brief.

On 10/30/06, my family was victim to a random act of violence. Now 12 years later we remember and we are grateful. Other stuff (some of it way worse) has happened since that fateful day. Sure puts things into perspective.

Ima go out and run through the leafeses just like my blogging pal Joey. Ha! Crunch, crunch, crunch!!! Wishing everyone a wonderful day!!

I Wanna Be Like B

B went to therapy one or two times after his accident.  His therapist said to say “eff it” to that which he could not control.  After that, B never needed to go back.  Problem solved!  No hiding, hidden secrets.  He employs the “eff it” method religiously.

Me? Uh not so much.  I worry and ponder then worry some more.  “Twisting and turning you’re feeling the burning you’re breaking the girl.  She meant you no harm”  Bonus points if you can guess to what song those lyrics belong.

C’mon!  Guess please.  You know you want to. 🙂

Better Than

Ever have one of those the shoe is about to drop feelings?  Yep, there I go again, making stuff up.  I can’t breath or I am barely breathing and I can’t find the air.  Settle down silly.  It is what it is until it isn’t.

When I got called back right away, I got the stink eye from everyone in the room.  I wanted to say but I am not seeing a “real” DOCTOR.  I am seeing the NP.  If you want to go first, then take an appointment with the first available.  Last time I checked the NPs are also fallible human beings.  My standard of care is no different thus far.

A CT scan is just what the NP ordered. Better than a MRI. Sure hope this answers some questions. Of course don’t ask questions if you really don’t want to know the answers 😲.

lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala

I don’t wanna!  Me with eyes closed and fingers in my ears.

lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala

Sure makes a pretty pattern and it sure helps relieve some anxiety.

As always, more to come.

“Give Me Everything”
(feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, Nayer)
Writer(s): armando perez, nick van de wall, shaffer smith

[Pitbull – Intro:]
Me not working hard?
Yeah, right! Picture that with a Kodak
Or, better yet, go to Times Square
Take a picture of me with a Kodak
Took my life from negative to positive
I just want y’all know that
And tonight, let’s enjoy life
Pitbull, Nayer, Ne-Yo
That’s right

[Chorus:]
[Ne-Yo]
Tonight I want all of you tonight
Give me everything tonight
For all we know we might not get tomorrow
Let’s do it tonight

[Nayer]
Don’t care what they say
Or what games they play
Nothing is enough
‘Til I have your love

[Ne-Yo]
Let’s do it tonight

[Nayer]
I want you tonight,
I want you to stay
I want you tonight

[Ne-Yo]
Grab somebody sexy, tell ’em hey
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight

[Verse 1 — Pitbull:]
Take advantage of tonight
Cause tomorrow I’m off to Dubai to perform for a princess
But tonight, I can make you my queen
And make love to you endless
This is insane: the way the name growin’
Money keep flowin’
Hustlers move aside
So, I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan

Put it on my life, baby,
I make you feel right, baby
Can’t promise tomorrow
But, I promise tonight
Dalé

[Pre-Chorus — Pitbull:]
Excuse me (excuse me)
And I might drink a little more than I should tonight
And I might take you home with me, if I could tonight
And, baby, Ima make you feel so good, tonight
Cause we might not get tomorrow

[Chorus:]
[Ne-Yo]
Tonight I want all of you tonight
Give me everything tonight
For all we know we might not get tomorrow
Let’s do it tonight

[Nayer]
Don’t care what they say
Or what games they play
Nothing is enough
‘Til I have your love

[Ne-Yo]
Let’s do it tonight

[Nayer]
I want you tonight, I want you to stay
I want you tonight

[Ne-Yo]
Grab somebody sexy, tell ’em hey
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight

[Verse 2 — Pitbull:]
Reach for the stars
And if you don’t grab ’em,
At least you’ll fall on top of the world
Think about it
Cause if you slip,
I’m gon’ fall on top yo girl (hahaa)
What I’m involved with
Is deeper than the masons
Baby, baby, and it ain’t no secret
My family’s from Cuba
But I’m an American Idol
Get money like Seacrest

Put it on my life, baby
I make you feel right, baby
Can’t promise tomorrow
But, I promise tonight
Dalé

[Pre-Chorus — Pitbull:]
Excuse me (excuse me)
And I might drink a little more than I should tonight
And I might take you home with me if I could tonight
And baby Ima make you feel so good tonight
Cause we might not get tomorrow

[Chorus:]
[Ne-Yo]
Tonight I want all of you tonight
Give me everything tonight
For all we know, we might not get tomorrow
Let’s do it tonight

[Nayer]
Don’t care what they say
Or what games they play
Nothing is enough
‘Til I have your love

[Ne-Yo]
Let’s do it tonight

[Nayer]
I want you tonight, I want you to stay
I want you tonight

[Ne-Yo]
Grab somebody sexy, tell ’em hey
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight
Give me everything tonight

[Outro — Pitbull:]
Excuse me (excuse me)
And I might drink a little more than I should tonight
And I might take you home with me if I could tonight
And baby Ima make you feel so good tonight
Cause we might not get tomorrow

Today is the Day! Spurred on by Book Club – Part 2

This post is as close to a review of the book as you will get from me.  Cait’s personal story is not to be judged.  Simply put, she is a survivor.

I read “The year of less” cover to cover in two days.  I can relate except for the spending sprees and binge drinking.  However, we are more alike than not as what you may have missed about me is that I have an addictive personality.  Shocking!  I know.  lol :).  I’ve fooled no one.

After the “incident” of 2006, we have done much of what is in the book but there is still room for improvement.  I really liked the nifty flow chart at the end which explains the whole premise of less.

Ironic don’t you think that a book about less, no shopping outside of necessities, and giving stuff away to find life worth more than what can be bought is SOLD to us.  Lol!  I easily amuse myself.

For my part, I borrowed.  Thanks again that S. picked it for our book club.  As I am doing with all reading, the public library is back in vogue and FREE!  Borrow, read, return and repeat.

Any Who, I cannot stop now.  My next goal is to donate the crap out of our stuff.  Yeppers!  B is going down this road with me.  He doesn’t know it yet but he won’t care as the ratio of stuff already leans toward me anyway.  Or maybe that just feeds someone else’s need to excessively CONSUME.  Maybe I need another wheelie bin to toss out “stuff” instead?  Oh well, whichever way we go, I am excited!  Can’t wait to live like our ancestors!  Off the land with NOTHING and EVERYTHING!  Wild and free.  Well except for this Internet thingy and of course TV 🙂

As always, more to come.

#SoCS for 10/27/18 ~ Bone

One the best things about Saturday is not setting an alarm.  Waking up to the natural sounds around me like the house creaking as opposed to an incessant beep-beep-beep is heavenly.  I slept in for the first time in ages.  This is the first day in about a month that I didn’t wake up feeling nauseous with aching bones.

Another one of the best things about Saturday is #SoCS.  Why yes! there can be more than one best.  Ha!  In my kingdom, most everything is BEST!

Speaking of best, it is time once again for #SoCS.  The lovely Linda gave us the prompt bone to use any way we want.  Decisions, decisions!

Bone!  Think, think, and think.

Got it!  Of course I do!  George Thorogood and the  Destroyer’s 1982 classic “Bad to the Bone” pops into the old noggin. And briefly a thought of the movie “Christine”.

B-B-B-B-Bad

B-B-B-B-Bad

Bad to the bone

Hey I resemble that remark.  Not for my attitude which is a constant state of trying to improve but because of my osteoporosis which I am in denial about and for which I refuse medication because the cure is worse than the disease.

Flowing along in true #SoCS fashion, I wonder who came up with expression bad to the bone?  Why have I not created that category yet?  Examples of why that’d be a great category are everywhere around us!

Uh duh Captain Obvious! Bad to the bone means deep. All the way to the bone aka the core/center. Is anyone really that bad? YES and unfortunately.  Just open up the morning, midday, and evening news.  Bombs are being sent through the mail.  WTF!

But you try to get a grip.  Think, think, and think.

Ah ha!  the Rush song “Roll the Bones”. I ❤ Rush. The thinking man’s band.

Why are we here?

Because we’re here

Roll the bones

Why does it happen?

Because it happens

Roll the bones

Deep thoughts man. Existential really. But when I get all thinking it’s no bueno. And the weather has improved and I prefer to be happy so no more talk of bone.

Yesterday I saw something similar to Gilda’s it’s always something and it makes me crazy that I can’t remember what exactly and where. I only know yesterday at some point during the day I thought “Hmm that’s just like it’s always something”

Themes seem to follow me you know. Right now I’m on a mantra kick. I cope by telling myself various platitudes … to get me past whatever ails me. Like repeating “It’s always something” on a loop.

Beep-beep-beep went the timer.  Better than the alarm.  Off to start prepping for brunch.  For early birds like me, anything after 9 a.m. does not qualify as breakfast.

Now if you like to join our group of prompt respondents, look here for the rules and ping back.

As always more to come.

Everything’s Coming Up Roses

Sing it loud with the voice the good Lord gave ya!  That is so Sister Angelee during Glee Club at good old St. Margaret Mary’s circa 1970 something.  I’ve been singing this song all morning.

Disclaimer: I have no copyrights to the song and/or video and/or hyperlinks to songs and/or videos and/or gifs above. No copyright infringement intended.

You see the mister decided to take the day off with me.  I’ve been good-naturedly pretending to be Ethel.  Lol!  Yes! … out loud … and in Walmart.  And getting on his last nerve.

Me: You’re gonna miss me doing this when I’m gone.

B: I’ve told you, I’m going first.

Maudlin but not.  Means he can’t live without me. Awwww.  Cue music. Ditto for me.

Any Who.  Everything’s coming up roses for me and my guy.  I had a whole bunch of thoughts popping like popcorn in my brain.  But alas, I got sidetracked and forgot most of the random stuff I was going to spew. Let’s see if we can re-create the magic shall we?

  1. Got my car back yesterday at 5 o’clock somewhere.  Didn’t go to the bar though.  I went straight home.  I am cagey in my driving because I do not want to wreck again.  I think I hit my quota though and perhaps being extra careful is how I always should be when I’m behind the wheel.
  2. I highly recommend Caliber Collision.  I gave them an exemplary survey.  I was updated regularly via text and they delivered this week as promised.  She even went above and beyond to allow me to get my car yesterday instead of waiting until this morning … which was my original reason for taking a personal day.  I feel like a princess.  My chariot is back.
  3. B is staying on … for now … past the original expiration date.  Ya see he is a niche market guy and the new owners want to hang on to that for as long as it lasts.  His current gig though time consuming and taxing has been extended because the owner who has more money than God wants stuff re-done to her liking.  How the other 1/2 lives people.  I tell ya.  What a crying shame. Or not.  I guess she earned it. Or not.  Nunya and in none of my business.
  4. After the current job, there is a little house to be done that no one else knows who to do but B and his cousin.  With at least two gigs, he will be there another year.  Time to take things day by day and hour by hour because none of us are guaranteed.  Maudlin but not.  Uh oh, a theme!

But nope.  I am done for now.  See you on the flip side for #SoCS.  Wishing everyone a VERY happy Friday.  If you are reading this, know you are loved.  Truly you are even if just by this crazy lady (me) who has attachments issues and loves the world instantly and automatically.

As always, more to come.
