Funny of the Day

The following occurred while watching Fox and Friends this morning:

Me: Ug. Al Gore is going to be in Florida today.
Husband: Didn't Al Gore invent Florida.

Those Bastards!!!

I am officially outraged. We got polled tonight. It was an automated system.

It went through and asked us what we thought about our county, blah, blah, blah.

Then it asked us what we thought about candidates for county commission, senators, etc....

Press 1 for Democrat so and so
Press 2 for Republican so and so

My husband put it on speaker so I could hear and it was really long and drawn out and boring. After about the third time they said 1 for Dem and 2 for Rep he just started pushing two before they finished reading. Then they get to President - I told him to wait because I wanted to hear exactly how they asked it. And guess what they did....

C'mon - guess. You have to know the answer already


I have no more words.

I Hate Blogger

I really do - it doesn't let you tweak your layout easily at all. Not only that - your changes are published as soon as you save them.

So, the cat's out of the bag - I have a new header. Complements of the very lovely and very talented guru of all things header-ish and graphical - Pamibe.

I just love it - it's fabulous and exactly what I had in mind. I am still deciding on my final colors and such so there will probably still be some tweaking and things going on. If you happen to pop in and my background is hot pink or some crazy nonsense - I'm really sorry about that. No, actually, no I'm not - deal with it.


I'm So Excited!

But I'm going to hide it. Geez. Did I really just say that? I guess I did.

There are some changes coming around here - just you wait.

What a Boy Seeing his Baby Brother for the First Time Looks Like

I know it's not the best picture in the world, but it really cracked me up.

Welcome Baby

For those of you who've been by Tammi's you know the news already. For those who haven't my new nephew was born last night around 9pm. Poor mama has kidney stones though. When I told my husband he just groaned.... My nephew asked "grandma" how come all the babies were naked so she explained that babies weren't born without clothes on and he said that was gross :) Then proceeded to point out to everyone in the nursery his brother. Too Cute! I wish I could have been there for that. The kid cracks me up. Anyway.....

Welcome baby Landon!

To the world you may be one person

But to one person you may be the world

We Started a Trend

Our neighbors on both sides have now put out McCain/Palin signs.

I smile to myself everyday when I drive down my street now.


I Had a Dream...........

I dreamt last night that I met AWTM and she was helping me pick out a new tattoo.

Tooting My Own Horn

I got two Aaaaaaas I got two Aaaaaaaas!!!!

My GPA is now up to 3.8 for all classes towards my bachelor's so far.

Neener neener neener.

My Husband - So Mad He Spits

Well, the good news is he got his stint out today. The bad news.....

Last weekend we went to a peanut festival and they had a republican booth giving out free McCain Palin signs. So we got one and put it in our yard. Folks, the bad thing about working at one of the only mechanic shops in a small town is that everyone knows you and knows where you live. So one of husband's long time customers shows up at the shop on Friday, walks up to my husband, starts shaking him and says "no, not you too! You've voting for her!?"

Husband: yea, you're not?!
Customer (who is a retired teacher in Gainesville): uh no! She is Stupid! You're smarter than she is!? (I told my husband I think he just insulted your intelligence).
Husband: - ???

and he proceeds to argue with my husband about how WE ALL DESERVE SOME OF BILL GATES MONEY and how GREAT CHINA IS

Give me a frickin' break. Is this guy serious? Yes, he really was. My husband tried to explain the concept of slave labor in China - he said yea right, that doesn't happen there. We have slaves and they are called illegal aliens. My husband, who is a really laidback guy, was so mad he was spitting when he talked. I can't understand it. This guy was a teacher, he should know better than to try and debate someone with inaccurate facts.

Oh God Kill Me Now

It's official - the majority of the people I work with are wack jobs. I came out of my office to hear someone saying something to the effect of "why are gas prices going down all of the sudden" and of course me being the helpful person I am I said "because of the stock market going down" and do you know someone responded with "yea right - it's because of the election - Republican's control gas prices"


I almost fainted right there.

All I could say was - uh yea...... that's not really true.

And walk away.

The Debate

Ugh. That was ugly. And I'm sure all the scary stuff Obama said last night has fallen on deaf ears amongst those who worship him. That is the worst part.

Look. I don't like McCain. I don't agree with a good percentage of the things he believes in. I think he is TOO FAR LEFT to be the Republican nominee. That's what I don't get about Obama's campaign. They keep screaming he's another Bush. He is DEFINITELY NOT another Bush. But he hasn't made that abundantly clear and so the masses of Obama worshippers blindly repeat it over and over. However. McCain does not support Socialism. That is enough for me to vote for him. Socialism is not right for our country. It has not worked around the world. Obama's point? It's not fair that the rich are rich and the poor are poor. And he's right. It's not fair. But is it fair to FORCE wealthier Americans to support people who are probably not doing all they can to support themselves? No, that's not fair either. Face it, LIFE is not fair. I for one do not want to be forced to support lazy people. I don't mind helping people who really need it. But I WILL NOT be told I have to.

See for yourselves

so·cial·ism           Listen to the pronunciation of socialism
1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2 a
: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
Just one more step along the path to Communism. I thought we all agreed back in the Cold War that Communism was unacceptable.

What I find most interesting? When you go to the page there's an ad to support Obama. Hmmmm....

Anyway - here's my thoughts on the debate.

McCain just isn't doing a very good job pointing out the scary things about Obama. And it HAS TO come from him cause the media sure isn't doing it.

I like the fact that he is so confident about his record, but seriously. Do voters really research that stuff? It's too time consuming. Every election we need to have an UNBIASED place where we can go see everything right there in one place. I want to see what bills they voted on, how they voted, and most importantly WHY they voted that way. A lot of times they will vote against a bill because of all the CRAP that gets stuffed into them. Then they are blasted for voting against a particular aspect of the bill, when they would have supported it without all the unnecessary stuff in it.

Another thing. I was getting angry last night because neither one could answer a question without spending half their talking time putting down the other. A debate is so the American people get a chance to hear your views on the issues and make an informed decision about who they are going to vote for based on those views. Y'all can sling mud all day long at your rallys. And it IS important to hi-light the scary or bad things about a candidate. But it is also important to make sure the public understands your stance on an issue.

The other thing that bothers me - we have taken the whole Republican vs Democrat thing to extremes. There are about 15 other people on the ballot for President. And they stand NO CHANCE IN HELL of getting in to office. Because no one knows crap about them. I am tired of just having two legitimate choices, especially in a year like this one where neither of them impress me. I would like to see the overblown crap (ie the national conventions and such) taken down to scale. I would like to see EVERY candidate get an equal amount from the public to campaign and I would like to see private donations be limited and I would like to see everyone represented at the debates. I know, wishful thinking.

Let me also make another thing clear. If Obama were supporting the other side of the issues (ie the Conservative side) I would vote for him. In a heartbeat. If he wasn't a raving Socialist, I might consider voting for him in this election. Because I am not a fan of McCain. And because we DO need change. But he IS a raving Socialist and I WILL NOT be voting for him.

Everyone Should Go Here Before Voting

It seems pretty ignorant to vote if you don't know the TRUTH, not what the candidates THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW.

Do it. Be Smart.

I approve this message.

Hey Retard

You haven't been keeping us updated on your weight loss efforts. Are you still exercising? Lost any weight?

Why Yes, yes I have, thanks for asking.

I finally broke down a few weeks ago and bought a smaller size pair of jeans because mine were literally falling off me. And guess what. The smaller size is now falling off me as well.

Last night when I was exercising, my sweat pants kept sliding down. It's really hard to exercise when you have to stop every few minutes to pull your pants up.

Also - I think I need a smaller bra. WOO HOO!

Feeling Much Better Today

I decided being a pessimist is no fun, so, I'm not going to kill myself. Yet. Though if all the craziness in my life keeps up, I just may. I think maybe I need a raise at work. I have no idea how to ask. Never had to.

Today someone at the grocery store told me I look like Sarah Palin.

Go figure.
