The Shtuff I've Lost

So last week I received and invitation for Google+. Its the new FaceBook and supposed to be better than sliced bread for those of you who couldn't give a shit. So far there is not too much to give a shit about.

Anywho....I go about signing up for this awesome newness and things got a little screwed up. I kept trying to sign in with my gmail account and my puter kept pulling Lauren's gmail account. (her puter is broke, so she's been using mine)
I got frustrated and mixed everything up. Eventually I just figured, I'll delete my old gmail, cause I don't really use it and just create a new one. Aha! Problem solved.




Yes I read the warnings when I was deleting said gmail. Yes, I agreed to said warnings too. I didn't care. I don't need that account. I USE different email accounts.

Delete. Bye, bye old email. Hello new email.

What?? Why can't I have a new email?? What?? I don't understand. YES I had a gmail before but I DONT WANT that one anymore!! Ok, Ok, just gimme my old email back.

Needless to say after much finagling with with Google and their system, I got my old email account back.

I figure shit out with the Google+ and open my Brandy New INVITATION ONLY Google+ account and go on about my existence.

Until two days later when I go to click on a YouTube video of mine that I posted on a friends page.

I may have been alone in my living room with two dogs and a cat but I was talking to them. VERY LOUDLY.


I did it.

Long story short, that old gmail account was the PRIMARY email for the YouTube account and even though I sign in with a different email, it doesnt matter. I gave them permission to delete my account and Every.Video.I'd.Ever.Made with said account.

I was crushed to say the least. I was able to restore my YouTube account but as promised by everything I read trying to figure out how to do it, No videos were restored. They are gone. Every last one. 3 years or so of videos. I don't really care about the ones of the dogs and stuff. I can make new ones.

BUT, there are about 5 videos I will mourn forever because they were stored no where else. My bad. My loss. My reason for crying myself to sleep that night.

Every one of Laurens PIR (graduation) videos from Navy Boot Camp were on my YouTube account. Awesome, proud moments that are now only in my ever fading memory.
The video of her leading her division in. The video of her standing proud in her white belt all out in front.

The video of her finally seeing us in the crowd (20 minutes into the ceremony) after not seeing us for 2 months. My sister caught that moment on video and its magical. (I should say it was magical) She's video taping and they called Laurens division for something so of course the majority of the division family was sitting there in front of them. As we screamed, you could see it on the video, her head never moved, just her eyes. And the moment she sees us, they got really big. No smile, just a small movement at the corner of her mouth trying to smile. And her eyes were blinking fast. She was trying not to cry while I became a blubbering idiot. You can hear me on the video jumping up and down saying, "she sees us!!" "she sees us!!" And see us she did. It was a great moment.

So this is your warning. Know what your accounts are connected to now that the interwebs are getting so connected and jumbled. And I need to get an external hardrive. For real.

I can't leave you all depressed and shit so here is the newest cuteness to occur...

I'll make some more wrasslin videos soon.

Smack Down

Nightly occurrence these days.

They LOVE each other and play constantly. I LOVE that.

And it wouldn't be normal if I had a normal animal would it?? No, that's why Hobbes fits right in around here.

Life is moving fast and I'm trying to hang on. No excuses, just no time. I do think about you all regularly. And then I smile. ;)

Lauren's been home from the Navy for all of a month. Thats all it took before she talks me into this:

HOBBES aka: cutest kitty evah!!

We went to the Humane Society last Wednesday to meet up with her friend who was getting a kitty. And I knew we were doomed when Lauren wanted to just "look at the little tabby kitty". You know where you fill out the information sheet and they bring the animal in the room so you get to hold it and kiss it and fall in love with it?? Couldn't Resist.

He's almost 8 weeks old 1.6lbs and a ball of energy.

And he loves the boys. In fact I think he'll end up being a dog really.

This was less than 24 hours after being home.....

Hobbes has definately got Jake wrapped around his lil paw...

Jakes ears make the best blankies...

And this was last night. All three on the couch together.

And then Remi gave up. It was getting too crowded.

Then it was all about Hobbes and Jake spooning. lol

So our zoo has grown and as usual, we get a funny, frisky kitten who loves dogs. =)

Pimpin for my sister

As if I have ANY right to ask you all for anything after my desertion of you. But I'm gonna ask anyway.

My sister is in an International Photography contest. She says in her blog, (see blurb below) that she is in the top 20. Well that was 10 days ago. She is now in the top 5-10. She has a chance at winning this shindig. And its big.

And she deserves it. She is a great photographer and I'm not saying that because she's my sister. Its true. MANY people LOVE her work. Not just me.

Here's her website. Check her out. Then come back and click the link in her post below and vote for her please. I'd love to see her win and go to Europe to shoot whatever it is they shoot. Thanks ;)

I’m Participating in an International contest….as a Photographer…

F**kin' Perfect

Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than fuckin' perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel like you're nothing
You're fuckin' perfect to me!

I'm pretty sure my love for P!nk has been stated on here before. It grows with each CD she releases. If this song helps one kid or shoot, even an adult it's worth the controversy.

Beware, this version of the video is a little graphic.

BTW, P!nk and her hubby are having a baby soon. Yay for them!!

Lots of "feel good about yourself" music out these days. I'm down with it. ;)

Valentines Day Massacre

3 months of nothing. 

1. I'm alive
2. I'm well.  Really.
3. I lost my writing mojo.
4. I had no laptop/puter since October.
5. I got my laptop fixed.  Finally. 
6. I got my fixed laptop back.  Today.
7. Things are changing around here.
8. I'm gonna have a new roomate soon.
9. This roomate is in addition to my other roomate (brother).
10. This roomate is my favorite person in the world.
11. I'm happy, fucking giddy happy about this.  But sentimental and sad at the same time.
12. I'm still trying to wrap my head around all thats happened in the last 2 months.
13. The boys are well.  Still crazy.  Still eating me out of house and home.
14. I've missed you all.  I'm sorry I suck.  Forgive me?

My personal life has been just like a Good Ol' Fashioned Nightmare....lately.  Not even the Book of Face is privy to the kaos. 

Matt and Kim.  Cute kids who write catchy little tunes.
Keep an eye on these two Edith. 

Fuckit.  One more.
I ADORE this song.  Accoustic version is so much better than the origional. 
Maroon 5 Misery

I'm not in Misery.  Really.  Just love th song.  And Adam Levine.  Flippen hawt.

I'll be around. 
p.s. I changed my blog address because the powers that be at work were snooping and I really didnt want them finding this. Sooooooo, that being said, when I changed it I lost all my blogs I read for some reason. Blogs I LOVE. Please comment, email me or something so I can have your blogs back on my list.

Thank you to all the Veterans out there, past, present and future.  I do appreciate you and will never forget what you sacrificed to keep me and mine safe. 

We are the Greatest Nation in the World and it wouldn't be that way without each and every one of you. 

Thank You.

107 and Amazing

My sister posted this on FaceBook and I have to say, it made my day.  I've watched it twice and it was hands-down, The Best 24 minutes of my day.  Maybe of my week so far.  I may watch it again.

Take 12 minutes to watch this documentary trailer.  Alice Herz-Sommer is an amazing woman with an outlook on life that is oh so inspiring.  She is all that is good about the human race.

This is the Official Trailer for a new documentary short about the oldest Holocaust survivor in the world Alice Herz-Sommer.


Happy Birthday Alice, may you live another 107 beautiful years.



"Music is God" ~ Alice Herz-Sommer




Just Wow.
