About this blog

Because I don't opine nearly enough elsewhere.  Actually this is a weird little repository for things that amuse me...which don't always amuse other people but I'm okay with that.

A Dog is not a Cat

But try telling that to my littlest pooch.  This is where one of the cats usually sits.  He vacated and she grabbed his spot.  The Penny to his Sheldon. Couch is as comfy as it is ugly.  Someday slip covers.   And why yes we have lived here 5 months and I haven't bothered hanging curtains yet...I'm busy posting here...stop judging me!  (Seriously a month after we moved I joined FJ and you guys are distracting!   )

Just a Bitch or Possessed by Demons?

My mood today is one of the above - depends on who you ask.  Weird though that in my head I'm happy and having a great time on the recipe thread, but when real life people speak to me I get all metaphorically stabby. You guys are total strangers so I'm sure I can trust each of you with my most shameful secret:  I'm not a good person.  I'm selfish, spoiled*, and either dangerously relaxed or way too tightly wound...whichever is the least helpful for the situation that's what I will be. *spoiled

I like squirrels...

So mostly peaceful day but just got an email about a small ghost poop just discovered...hope it's easy to clean.   I did forget to stop by the drug store though...trying to remember what was so important that I pick up.  I know I needed something... What was it I forgot?   Oh YEAH!  The part of lunch that they don't stock in the lunch room!  Coffee alone just isn't the same.

Cleaning up Ghost Poo

You know what ghost poo is...those little bits of Styrofoam used for packaging. Like I'm going to use a pic of straight up packing material if Google serves me up an image of same with 100% more cat. Anyway, emergency upgrades to a live production server on the fly in the middle of a work day resulting in angry end users aren't as relaxing as they may seem to those of you not in the trade.   So a quick photo essay of my week thus far...

5 minute break and I'm updating my blog?

Yes - I am one of those annoying people who can't get enough silly animal pics.  If I email bombed you with this nonsense it would be rude, but posting it here where it hurts no one is just therapy. Today is...not as bad as it could have been.  Which means I'm at the level of stress where the blood flow is letting up.   But still...I have tried all of the below - proactive escape, whiny anger, and pathetic despair but so far nothing is working.  Maybe I need to stop being so damn delightful an

Why won't my headship forbid me to work?

I want me one of those head ships that insist I stay home and tend to the house and the kids.  Mine lets me go out unchaporoned everyday to a horrible place filled with horrible people. i just got home from work about 20 minutes ago.  Nothing like a 16+ hour day to make life as a fundy seem pretty relaxing. 16 hours of this...   another 5 minutes of this before I fall asleep... i really need better balance in my life.

Nature's genitals

Just a throw away blog post because I stumbled across this today and I'm always happy to see nature make use of reproductive visuals where you'd least expect.   Totally safe for work unless you have a dirty mind...man, if that were real that guy should really have used sunscreen! and and the cervix that started it all...or an eye of a hurricane.  Potato-potahto.

It's Friday (PSA for those of you without calendars)

Yes, I am superstitious.  I am migrating a 116 GB database to a test environment and I am wearing my lucky socks, my lucky hair scrunchy....and the fucker still failed at the same point (1 hour and 42 minutes in for those of you writing a book about my life) 3 times.  I know some of you out there feel my pain.  Ahem.  So after fixing the obvious issues on the fourth try I held my breath between minute 1 hr 40 and 1 hr 43 (not the whole time - do I look like Michael Phelps?  Oh wait, you haven

Today is certainly another day...

I did not wake up to find myself independently wealthy, I rarely do, so I went and tried the work thing again.  While I have yet to see a kitten riding a unicorn while eating a cupcake with rainbow sprinkles, there was significantly less this... a little less this... but something new happened...something I thought was merely apocryphal.  I had two grateful end users who said...what is that expression that feels like sarcasm but sometimes it's not?  When they are sincerely appreciative?  Oh

I don't hate everything...

One of my favorite YouTube vids is Kitty Doesn't Like which people who know me don't find surprising since I tend to dislike things a lot.  Meaning I not only dislike a lot of things and I dislike them intensely.  And I've been in a very negative headspace latel (for damn good reason, as mentioned in my last post - people suck). But I'm not a total whiner - I do love some things and in an attempt to head to bed on a positive note I'm going to list 10 things that I love (my family both human an

One day closer to becoming s total recluse...

Have you ever had one of those days where you just wonder where exactly you made the wrong turn in life to end up sitting behind this particular desk dealing with these particular people?  Wondering what fucking bet you lost to deserve this?   IT people out there don't have to answer - I know you understand.  Every so often I'll read about a Pollyanna IT chastising the venters, ranters, and champion eye rollers for bad attitudes.  Yeah, those people have been in IT less than 10 minutes or lying

Crazy cat lady or the feline Mrs. Duggar?

So I had this dream last night - more like an emotional nightmare - where we adopted 50+ cats all at once.  The cuteness was overwhelming, but everyone someone in my family came home they can't with boxes of cats...carrying cats, cats poking heads out of backpacks and hoodies...until there were hundreds of cats from very elderly to brand new kittens.  Every size, color, type...you name it and they were everywhere. Not neatly packed in a labeled box like this.   Anyway I had a full on breakdo

If only I'd thought of it...

If I had thought to post something like this maybe my afternoon would have been quieter... And FYI for the asshole parents in my neighborhood who can't be bothered to teach their kids to follow society's rules:  trick or treat hours ended 71 minutes ago and the porch light being off means no one is going to answer the door by village decree.   Not that I haven't enjoyed listening to my dogs lose their shit well past the prescribed time. Maybe less focus on candy and more on learning how to re

Now THIS is scary!

So I went to Google me up a Buffy Halloween avatar (because I'm a dork like that) and I came across this absolute freak show of a costume... Buffy from Family Affair mass produced costume circa 1970 - what the fuck is that?  What does the dress design have to do with her?  Why is Mrs. Beasley jumping out of a pumpkin like a stripper out of a cake?  How high were the people who designed and then okayed this to be marketed to kids?   In case you weren't horrified enough...here's the mask.  I w

Confessions of a mom at Halloween...and KISS makeup?

My kids are young adults and long past filling up pillowcases and plastic pumpkins with candy, and since they know I talk to my imaginary friends online but don't know where I can unburden myself from sins of Halloweens past: I hated making costumes.  The pressure to be creative and not look like something was thrown together by a team of monkeys with a drinking problem made me cranky.  My mom won costume prizes for the handcrafted outfits she'd make my elder siblings...months of love and care

A dumbass with a time machine...and a dumbass with a soldering iron

So on the way home from work yesterday I saw some idiot riding one of these... and his hat was even sillier since it had flashing lights on it. This was within blocks of my workplace so it was strange, considering I don't work in the Victorian era.  In Chicago we're known to have a car or two on the roads during rush hour.  I'm not a cyclist (can't stop unless there is a bush I can crash into) but I don't think we make anyone's list of cycle friendly cities.  I don't love heights and have lo

Speaking of Pecans...

(This is a redo for those who saw the test blog, some previously viewed content you have been warned..) In preparing for the upcoming holiday baking seasons many people thoughts turn to pecans and subsequently for FJite bakers...pecan theives.  Because let's face it, when we see the price of those spendy little nuts one understands the temptation to glean... First we must outfit ourselves with the proper perspective to tackle this controversial topic Because both pecans and pecan thieves are

Head's Up with our 'Favorite' Fundies

(Giving me a forum to ramble was a bad idea,,,just saying...) So we're not really a game playing family, but my daughter had this game on her iPad called Head's Up and it's like the old Password.  Pick a category and the person who is guessing holds the iPad facing away from them (by the forehead - hence the name) and the others all give you clues,  get it right flick the iPad down, pass and flick it up.  Can't use any of the words in the name/phrase/whatever in the clue.  Very simple, fun, and

Conflicted about Christmas

So why am I talking about Christmas before Halloween when I hate that?  Because we moved over the summer and I'm seeing a different side to this new neighborhood.  It seemed like a nice, normal, stereotypically suburban neighborhood when we got here which goes to show you should never move to a neighborhood without first checking it out in Holiday season. Within two square blocks we have a dozen or so excessively decorated houses for Halloween.  I don't mean a couple of window decals...I mean f

Talking Kitty and I hate Christmas

The F word and the S word make this NSFW - and the cats/dog aren't wearing clothes.  Consider yourself forewarned.    Steve Cash is always full of awesome....his Talking Kitty series is an endless source of happiness for me.

Settling in...

I know that first post...shameful...but just trying to settle in and make myself at home...(just needed an excuse to post this no matter how lame the segue.) Oh, and fun fact to no one in the world but me - that pink wallpaper on this blog is remarkably similar to the wallpaper I had in my room as a kid.

Cloud formations and birth control

When I was little sometimes my mom and I would lie in the yard on a sheet fresh from the clothesline (nothing smells better than sheets dried in sun) and we'd look up at the clouds and find things in the shapes.  My mom was awesome at this - she could find sailboats, all kinds of animals, flowers, hearts, people... So as I was driving home from work and I saw a cloud formation which was clearly discernible as an object I knew I had to capture that.  So happy when it was still visible from my bl

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.
