Goodbye Gingie

So I move tomorrow. Finally. Effing rain (everyday for the past 14 days) has delayed the dude that lives in my new place from moving to his new place. What a nightmare. My landlord wants me out today cause its the 31st. Well Dude, I cant move cause the other guy hasnt moved!!! Its a fucking vicious cycle. Its not like he even has this place rented yet. Stupid Fucktard. Tried telling me I had to pay a whole nother monhts rent cause I was gonna be here on the 1st. Yeah, right. Get in line buddy. I still have to pack the kitchen and bathroom up but I'll take care of that today. Not much stuff in the old kitchen anymore since I eat cereal or Spagetti-O's every night for dinner. Why you ask??!?! Because I CAN!!! No kid to cook for anymore so I dont cook anymore! Yippppeeeeee!!!

My sister, my second best friend in the world (my kids first, duh) is moving to Boston on Thursday with her new girlfriend. Poop. I'm gonna miss her beyond bad. Now both my best friends are gone. pfffft. In 38 years we've always lived near each other except for that momentary lapse of reason she had when she lived in Pittsburgh for 2 years way back in '95.

I'm gonna miss you Ginger. Ugh.

In honor of the National Spelling Bee

Zombie Apocalypse

All right, its time to get into my irrational fear of zombies or the undead or whatever you want to call them. I mean, I'm scared of a lot of things, but zombies take the cake. Much more than any other type of "monster" you can throw at me. I cant really tell you when this fear started, I know it was when I was very young based on nightmares I used to have. I guess its the whole apocalyptic threat that makes it seem like it "could" become a reality one day. Maybe one of these swine or avian flu's could start it. Who knows.

Even though I have this fear, I'll watch a zombie movie in a heartbeat. NEVER alone though. And always with a blanket or pillow strategically placed in front of my eyes to block any really scarey parts. The remake of Dawn of the Dead is my favorite if there is such a thing. 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later as well as I Am Ledgend all freaked me pretty good too. Shawn of the Dead was just hilarious.

I've been to Halloween Horror Nights at Univeral Studios Orlando twice. The first time was just a major freak out. It was when they were doing it at Islands of Adventure and that park just lends itself to a much spookier experience. Zombies were everywhere. Running in packs and just showing up out of no where. Fuhk. It was awesome, but terrifying at the same time. I just spent the whole night attached to my kid with my head burried in her shoulder. And if it had been real, I'm sure my self preservation instincts would have won out and I'd have thrown her to be eaten by them so I could get away. How horrible a mother am I??

I also realize there are two "types" of zombies. Those that walk slow and moan a lot and then those that are speedy little fuckers that move way to fast and are usually smart. I much prefer the slow ones for obvious reasons.

My kid and my sister know all about my irrational fears and will put up with the screwy way I think sometimes. They know I hate walking the dogs late at night and why. If I see someone way down the street, you can best be assured the poor dog needs to get the deed done quick cause we are not staying out there much longer. I'll watch this person way down the street and imagine that all of a sudden they turn, see me and start moving my way. How stupid is this???? Its really distressing and horrid for the dogs peeing/defication habits. Not done? Too bad your holding it till morning.

My sister says this one took the cake....When my kid went to boot camp in Great Lakes, I found a place, roughly halfway between south Florida and Chicago that would be our meeting place should the zombie apocalypse occur while she was away. I looked up the town (in Kentucky I think), found a hospital and told my us at the emergency room. We'll be there! Just get yourself there! Its all rather stressfull. Oh, and now that she's in P-cola training, I told her to just wait there...we'll find a boat and come get you. It'll be easier that way. Just dont be killing your IPhone battery texting all your soon to be dead/zombie friends. =0 You'll need it to get our texts.

I also lock my bedroom door at night...just in case.

So now that I've actually written down my fear and I read over it.....god, I'm a fucking nutcase. 8/ But, I've got a plan. Just in case. They'll be no nom nom nom on my flesh without a fight.

Chair Wars

In my house on a daily basis there is a struggle, and epic battle if you will for, "The Chair".

This smelly nasty old chair should have been thrown out at least 6 months ago when the couch went. Somehow, I just couldnt throw this chair away. Everytime I talked about doing it Remi would give me those puppy dog eyes like he knew what I was talking about and I would relent. He loves that chair. Its his perch to bark at every little thing that moves outside. His special spot to eat the blinds. His place to store bones, toys and my work ID's that he steals off the counter. I also figured, let them have the chair, then they wont bother my chair. I've been reduced to an Ikea chair that I've threatened them with death if they even smell it. After I move pretty new furniture is coming for them to destroy.

Anyway, I thought todays battle was pretty funny. Remi is the black one in the back and he usually wins the battle. Jake, the yellow one is just plain bigger and once Remi has possesion, he just gives up, as there is just not enough room for the two of them. Not today. He was not giving up if it meant only one paw and his tail was on the chair. Nope, not giving up. I love that dog.

Trojan this.

FUHK! As i post this from my Iphone a nasty little Trojan horse virus is eating my laptop. At the risk of sounding repetative, FUHK FUHK FUHK!!! I despise being computer virus illiterate. I mean I dont get it, the virus software on my puter is showing the little twit virus in the virus vault and HEALED. Why pray tell is it still fucking with my puter!?! This is the second major virus I've had in 6 months. I wonder if its all those visits to redtube. THATS embarrasing.

I asked my boy Jack for some help but I have a feeling he's a bottle or two of Sailor Jacks rum in allready this holiday weekend.

I give up. Im HP's dream computer illiterate idiot. I'm just gonna go buy a new laptop. FUHK.

EDIT: Update 5/26/09 I fixed it. =) Well sort of. When I got to work today, instead of working I immediately searched the web for ways to kill Trojan horse virus'. I found one and it worked!!! Woot Woot. So I think its fixed. I'm still in "safe mode" and at least I can get online now. I'm gonna beg Jack to take a look for me and fix it right. I do feel accomplished tho! Its amazing what you can find on the web. lol

I <3 Jake & Remi

These guys are my joy. They make what was a crappy day at work good when I get home.
In my next life I want to come back as a well loved dog.

pLaYin hOOky

I love playin hooky from work because I hate my job. Seems a horrible thing to say with a shitload of people out of work and not being able to find any. I should be happy I have a job. Thankful that I can pay my bills. Screw around at the casino whenever I want. Buy useless chachkis to clutter my place.

I dont feel guilty though. If I can get away with not going, thats exactly what I'm going to do. When this damn recessions over I'm gonna find a new job. Yup thats what I'm gonna do. And I'm gonna find one that I LIKE to do. I'm tired of workin for the man and dreading it.

Fighter Jets and Boobs

I showed this pic to one of my guy friends at work today and he went crazy. He was like, "Where'd ya find this?", "When did they make this?" He was total guy gaga over it. I finally let him off the hook and told him it was a photoshopped picture. lmao. Now, you might be thinking she is one mean bitch to be playing tricks like that on some poor guy. Hell, maybe the Navy really did make such a fighter jet. Well, dont go gettin your underwear in a jumble cause you think I'm such a bitch. Please read further.

This is the same guy who'd never seen Total Recall and when I showed him this picture...he thought this freak of nature was REAL. (?!?)
Oh my, the state of the gene pool in South Florida is pretty bad.

Happy Birthday Trent

Trent Reznor who is NIN (Nine Inch Nails) turns 44 today. That gives me hope! He's a year older than me and still cool. I remember the first time I heard him. My sis and I were on a road trip down to Ft. Lauderdale from Hilton Head and she put a cassette in. I knew she liked weird music so I was like, "I'm not listening to any of your weird shit all the way to South Florida". She said dont worry, just try it, you'll like this one. Low and behold, I was hooked! We listened to that tape all the way through from beginning to end....Pretty Hate Machine is still one of my all time favorite albums. I must admit, she's introduced me to a lot of great music through the years and now I anxiously await the newest morsal she's found!

I love that I in turn introduced my kid to the crazyness that is NIN. I can remember her way back in 1990 still in a carseat swayin to the beat of Head Like A Hole. lmao. She is cool today because mommy was cool then. Thats my story and I'm stickin to it!

I remember way back in the fall of 2005 when my daughter and I had tickets to his With Teeth tour. FINALLY we were gonna see this man. Hear all the great songs we loved so much and knew every word to. But alas, a stupid hurricane came and blew the thought of any concert to smithereens. We were both pissed, bitter women for awhile after that loss. >=(

I caught a lot of smack for liking NIN when my kid was younger, those other soccer moms couldnt understand how I could listen to such music, much less LET my kid listen to it. Didnt I know he cursed on his cd's and did horrible things in his music videos?? pffft. Please. She's no worse for wear because of it.

He's definately aged well. He is a HoTT MeSS nowadays! Happy Birthday Trent! Muah! And thanks for the music.

Disney Calls

As I sit here NOT packing I realized its Star Wars weekends at Disneys MGM Studios. (Its got a new name, but I'll always call it that.) I'm sad, I need a Disney fix really bad. I just don't know how to do it without my kid. Sure, I could get there, stay on property, go to all the parks....but I don't know how to do it without her. Over 100 (prolly close to 150) trips to Disney, ALWAYS with her. Its like eating McDonalds french fries without ketchup, going to the bathroom and not wiping, living without breathing. ugh. Somethings gotta give. I'm gonna go pack some more.

Moving sucks

Well its time to move (again). I feel like a flippen nomad. I'd really love to buy a place but I have commitment issues and fundage issue so its a mute point. I just dont get it. I loved, well maybe not loved, but really liked this place when I moved in. Now I abhor it. I hate coming home from work and I hate being at work so it just makes for a stressfull day all around. The new place is better. Its a cute little cottage with a private patio AND a backyard for the bumbling beast. YESSSS, no more midnight walks around the neighborhood while they smell every flippen blade of grass looking for that perfect holy grail of a spot to pee. (oh and repeat 10 times) woohoo!! Freedom from the leash for them and ME! I'm not even going to get into my irrational fear of zombies on a dark street at night.

Packing. Ugh. I am a pack rat in a 12 step program. I am throwing shit away thats been around and doing nothing forever! It feels so good, but I cant help I gonna need this again some day? I'm sure I could use this for.... Its a vicious cycle. I stopped saving boxes a few years ago. It really hurts throwing that printer box away. Really. But I've learned. Its just easier to lug the printer around than to find a place for the box inbetween moves. I have two weeks until I move and only about 3 days of hard packing to do. I guess I am getting better. ((smile))

My goal is to stay in this place for two whole years!!! Hell if I still like it after that...3 years! Baby steps, I know. I have big plans for this place. I'm gonna make it really beachy and comfy cozy. Maybe the younger beast wont eat my furniture anymore. We'll see.
