Bad Fucking Timing!!

Let me explain how pissed I am, and then we'll celebrate!

Tonight I had plans to go out with a friend of mine. I told her as long as I could see the game; I'd be a happy gal.

So I get all beautified for a night on the town and head out to the bar. We start watching the game and I'm trying to text message others on how the Cardinals are going to kick the Tigers ass. I have a few bets riding on this game.

So, since my text messages aren't going through, I power cycle my phone (take the battery out and put it back in). Once I put the battery back in, the phone just keeps going through the boot mode, and never 100% powers on. It's fried! I hate this phone.

I am addicted to my phone. Seriously, once it started doing this, I went through immediate withdrawal!! I start messing with the phone (I have wireless experience) trying every trick I know to get it to work.

Mind you, I only know a few numbers by heart. For some reason, I know My friend B's, the Bipolar's and Morrigan's. I have no one else's number written down...they are all in my phone. I know, I used to work for a wireless company, very stupid of me!

At this point, I am pissed off. My friend is laughing, talking, having a good time and I am all pissed about my phone. Total withdrawal! Very sad!!

It never ended up working. My Cardinals won the fucking World Series!! I know I have at least 10 messages of people either congratulating me or ragging on me! Fuck! Tomorrow, I will go and port my number to another carrier, that's the only way I will get service quickly (since the phone is through work). But I'm pissed. In the big scheme of things, this isn't that big of a deal. But I am leaving for Kansas City in 12 hours, my Cards just won the World Series, and my phone is fucking fried!

I swear, I can't stand this withdrawal. I am addicted to my phone.

(Side note: I don't have a home phone. My cell is my only means of communication)

Drowning in a Puddle of Raid

Can anyone tell me what the hell this is?

Whatever it is, it scared the everloving shit out of me! It is now dead in a puddle of Raid. Not quite sure how I'm going to clean it up yet as it is huge!! Bleh! That'll keep me out of the kitchen for a little while.


While talking with Morrigan about this creature that still is on my kitchen floor, she decides to google centipedes as that's what she thinks it is. She then would insist I look at each picture. I guess the real one wasn't enough...

If I have nightmares tonight, I'm so giving her a wakeup call at like 5am.

Here are some of the pictures....

And out of care and respect for those of you that our squeamish, I have put them in the extended entry.

Online High Schools???

I got an email from my school tonight that said the following:

Tuition Discount for New Online High School Program

Apollo Group has contracted with Lutheran High School of Orange County (LHSOC) to manage the online delivery of their high school curriculum. Established in 1973, LHSOC is a comprehensive, college preparatory high school with a national reputation for outstanding academic excellence. Students will be enrolled at Lutheran High School of Orange County and will be taught by LHSOC faculty. Through this innovative program, Orange Lutheran Online now offers a proven, highly-successful form of education to high school students across the country and around the world.

Historically, students at LHSOC have graduated with GPAs and SAT scores that are significantly higher than the national average. In fact, recent surveys reveal a vast majority of graduates (93%) successfully continue their education at community colleges, state universities, and some of the nation's most prestigious institutions. Through this unique outsourcing agreement LHSOC has agreed to extend a one-time tuition discount to Apollo Group alumni, students, faculty and staff. University of Phoenix and Axia College students are eligible for a 10% discount off of the already competitively-priced tuition rate, for both its online diploma-seeking and single-course enrollment, if your child begins classes before the end of this calendar year.

Orange Lutheran High School would be honored to welcome your son or daughter into Orange Lutheran Online. To speak with a counselor about the program and curriculum, or complete the application process, call 1-800-651-3432… or visit our website at

You've got to be kidding me! Now, I've already taken enough flack for going to college online. There are points I agree with, but for the most part, I know I (me, maybe not everyone, but me!) am getting a good education, it fits my learning style, my schedule, etc.

But for high school kids? Why? I realize this "advanced" school wants to make money. But what type of parents would send their kids to high school online? Hell, most of the stuff I learned in high school was about relationships, conflict, people, etc. I learned just as much in my extra curricular activities as I did in the classroom. I would not return to high thank you! But knowing what I know now, I would not wish to go to an online high school.

Am I missing something? When would this be a good option for a teenager?

The Purple Skittle

The rental car I have to drive for a fricken week?

A damn piece of shit Kia!

I did not know they still made cars without power windows and power locks!

Seriously, I have to manually pull or push the lock on the door FOR EACH DOOR if I want it locked or unlocked.

Call me lazy...I don't care. But it's a little in-con-fricken-venient when everyone is used to power locks!

Ok, I can handle that...I'll get used to it for 4 days. But what I won't get used to is the 4 cylinder mouse engine that is pushing that thing! I know some damn semi is going to ram into me trying to get into traffic! Those things should be illegal...they are not safe!

The alignment is WAY off! The steering wheel, when driving straight, is actually off by about 45+ degrees!

And then, after driving it long enough to get the damn thing up to 85 mph, it felt like it was going to quit right there! And it made this loud abnoxious noise from the wind like the window wasn't all the way up. But it's not like I could try to roll it least not until I stopped and could lean over and roll it up manually.
(Which I later found out WASN'T the problem)

I was the person on the highway that I'm usually cussing at from my truck!

Not to mention it looks like I'm driving a purple skittle!

I Could Spit Fire

This was on our local news a few months ago:

(Columbia) March 29, 2005 - A Columbia woman says she thought she was doing the right thing when she found an injured dog, but now she feels responsible for its death.

Michelle McFadden took her dog Wimper in after she found her wandering in the middle of a busy road, "I could never find her owners and I took it as she was meant to be mine."

It's the tale of another dog that crossed her path that's hitting Michelle really hard, "I know now that I messed up by calling Animal Control."

Michelle was driving on a road in Orangeburg Easter Sunday when she saw a dog hit by a car, but alive. After a number of phone calls, and miscommunication she says Animal Control picked the dog up seven hours later and put it to sleep that night it was indeed.

Officer Eddie Haigler says that's policy for injured animals, "Yes it was. Any injured animal we get is euthanized."

If it's hurt at all, Animal Control doesn't consider getting it treated or healed, they just automatically put it to sleep.

Last year, Orangburg Animal Control took in 7,000 strays and 90 percent of them were put down, injured or not, "Just because we do euthanize animals, don't think it doesn't get to us. That's a high stress level."

With only 30-odd kennels and a limited budget, Officer Haigler says it's the only way, "We try to do the best we can with what we got, and what we have to work with what we have, unfortunately."

Michelle says, when she found out they were going to kill it, "I said I'd get in the car and come right now."

But Animal Control says they only release animals to owners, with no exceptions.

It's a lesson Michelle says she learned the hard way, and one she won't forget, "I learned don't call Animal Control and I learned to make sure your dog has some kind of ID."

I hate it! I hate that they won't try and find homes for these animals. To kill a dog after one night of being there? I understand there is money and budgets, etc....but this next part is what has me spitting fire!

As I was watching the news tonight, there was a woman that was wanting to take 2 dogs from Animal Control to keep them from being euthanized. She already had 1 dog, had a huge yard for them to play in, no kids. They told her they only release dogs to their owners. And after 5 days, the dog is euthanized.

WTF? You are telling me you will kill a dog before letting it be adopted? What's the harm in letting someone take the dog. They are the ones bitching they don't have enough money to support these stray dogs and they don't have enough room to house them. So.....LET THEM GO HOME WITH A FAMILY!

I can't think of any reason for this. No reason at all! Supposedly this law is being questioned with our mayor. What do I need to do? Who do I need to write to? Who do I need to bitch at to get such a stupid law changed?

I'm going to my mom's this weekend. All I want to do is hold Kiki and let her know she is loved. She was a stray and the thought that animal control could have just killed her because she was a stray just makes me want to throw up!

It's just sick!

The Bug Debate

My sister and I were having a debate this weekend.

I asked her, if we could choose one type of bug to no longer exist, what would it be?

My obvious choice was the roach! They're the only things that won't die!

My sister said mosquitos. Mosquitos?? Hmph! I can deal with a mosquito bite ANY day (as I avoid the temptation of scratching 1 of 5 bites on my legs)

Her thought...roaches don't bite, mosquitos do.

I don't give a sh*t. Roaches are gross, evil creatures!

So, we will open the question up to everyone else.

If you could choose any bug to no longer exist, what would it be?

Bugs Bugs Bugs!

They are coming from everywhere! I have tons of dead little bugs by my front door, live ones are popping up from my baseboards.

A couple of nights ago, a HUGE waterbug/palmetto bug/cockroach fell from my ceiling fan onto my floor and freaked me the f*ck out! Seriously, I was almost in tears...

I jumped up from the sofa, put on shoes (but wouldn't step on something this huge) and grabbed the bug spray. I grabbed my phone to call my mom and meanwhile, Monsoon Raid is coming down on the piece of sh*t! Everytime it moved I screamed! Finally, it ran underneath my sofa. I sprayed all around the sofa creating a fog of death around the sucker. I moved the sofa later, used a broom to go under and never found the thing.

Meanwhile, I'm giving my mom the play by play on the phone, panicking. I couldn't find it. I refused to sit on the sofa as I was scared it crawled up in there.

I was scared to go to bed that night as I have a ceiling fan over my bed. I didn't sleep well that night!

I keep my house clean! No food is left out, no dirty dishes, counters are clean, laundry is stored in the hamper, etc. I AM.NOT a dirty person! Where the hell are these things coming from?

I live in a decent apartment. I would hope that the people next to me or above me are not breeding these things!

Mind you, I just had the place sprayed three weeks ago!

Then last night, when I got home from my moms, I went to jump in the shower and saw a regular sized roach between my shower curtain and liner. I jump out of the shower dripping wet, go and put on shoes, grab the spray. I shake the curtain from the outside until he falls out and stomp the hell out of him and then drown him in spray just in case he was trying to take a last breath!

I can't take this! Isn't there something in the lease about living in a bug free environment??? I'm going to have them bomb the place while I'm in Denver this week! If it's not better when I get back, I'm living in my truck!

My Alarm Clock is Messed Up

In bed, I opened my eyes wide awake. I had been dreaming a lot and think I just finally gave up on sleep. I hadn't fallen asleep unit 1:30am so I figured it must be time to work, although, I hadn't heard my alarm yet.

I rollover and see this:


What is this? I've never seen this before. I think it has something to do with the sun not being up yet.

Well, now there is absolutely NO EXCUSE for me to not go work out this morning. I think I just had to get an early start on my week.

Look, I felt sorry for VW and ArmyWife. Really, I did. But in no way did I want to feel sleep sympathy pains!

So I'm taking bets....what time will I absolutely just crash today? (Considering I normally get 8 hours of sleep every day)

Meat in the South

My mom made me Taco Rice yesterday. Oh so yummy! I don't know what she does to make it taste better than mine...but I could live off hers!

So we are sitting on the couch eating and I'm telling her how good it is. And her reply -

"Eh...I can tell a difference in the taste of the meat down here than up in Chicago"

WTF? A different taste in hamburger???

Am I totally off my rocker or are there different tastes to hamburger according to where you are and buy it?
