Sweet Angel Cowboy from Nebraska

If this doesn't make you get a tear in your eye...you are a hardened criminal!  I've never claimed to be a religious person although I do think I am a spiritual person but this got to me.  I have to admit it.

MUST VIEW: Little Angel Cowboy from Nebraska


A phone call from a 12-yr old boy to Houston radio station KSBJ FM 89.3. 
So profound, the station has it posted on their website. 

My Blog Is Older than Your Blog

...I was looking at my archives and HOLY CRAP...my blog it old.  Started in Sept. 2002 and this is a repost of Oct 21st 2002.

The Joy Of…yah

After shaving the callouses off of my feet and popping a few extra mutating blackheads I settled in with a nice steaming toddy, put my feet up, got a good book to read and enjoyed myself. Afterwards I tucked my sleepy children in and as I kissed them tenderly they smiled up at me and said sweetly," Luv ya mom!"


Well…the callous part is true.

Maybe I do have mutating blackheads…or MAYBE my pores are just big.

Need to check into that sometime.

Like when I care.

I love going to work though.

THAT is something.


I did kiss my children…those that still allow that kind of thing without grimacing at my touch, and those that weren’t mad at me.

That means…well, Alec was alright with it.

Katie mumbled and pretended she was alseep…and them remembered she needed money for something and made a request.

Andrew tried to duck away…but I caught him anyway.

He wiped it off firecly while growling…MoOm!

Mark (who was pretending to be busy at the “tucking them in time) waited until I walked by him then grabbed my ass.


I feel asleep on the couch and awoke with to the scent of a dogs ass facing me.

bastard Petey

He ate the cat food again and was suffering from shitmahpants gas. Gah

I shouted To The Kennel!

and I was away to my own bed.

Where I slept like a damn rock until my alarm went off.

Nuts & Beers

I baked rosemary garlic foccacia bread for the shop and spent the rest of the day working on my menus.  They needed revamped.  I added a few things which will irritate the cooks ...including me when I need to help out and can't remember what the hell I added.  The bread is tasty but didn't turn out as well as last Sunday.  There wasn't as much humidity in the air as last week.  That seems to aid the rise. Still..there is nothing quite like the smell of bread baking.  I love it.  I  made croutons from the ends that I got from the flat bread after I trimmed them and they are yummy.  I could make a meal off of croutons.  

Last night Mark and I went to Tobi's house for a beer fest and late house warming partay. We warmed well.  Poor Tobes...there was at least 50 kids under the age of 8 there and they were busy at all times.  I smiled and laughed and drank beers.  When Mark and I got home our boys were waiting up for us in the living room...hahahahahahahahahahaah.  This is bad but I was seriously toasty and don't really remember talking much or what time it was or...yahh.  geeze  I hate that.  I didn't feel bad today but I am tired.  I worked out and burned a few calories up. Unfortunately I just ate a huge bowl of grape nuts and a leftover wrap that I'd made for the boys and they obviously didn't like little shits.  Now...I'm ready for bed.

Aren't you glad you tuned in for this exciting story?!

I Can't Believe It!

I lost 5 pounds...I told everyone I lost 4 because I was sooo shocked I lost any I just jumped off the scale and blurted out...I LOST 4 POUNDS!!  durrr durr durrr  When I should have screamed out loud...I LOST 5 POUNDS mofos!!!!!   

I probably gained it back all tonight because after work we went to the bar and drank MANY beers and just now, after we won the football game(!!!!), I ate two bowls of taco soup, a bologna and mayo on Wheatberry bread sandwich and a cinnamon roll.  yeahhhhh

Bas turd Midnight Drunken Snacking

Tomorrow morning is the first weigh in..and if I had weighed in yesterday, before volleyball/bowling alley beer/drunk snacking night...I may very well have lost weight.  In fact I really had...except today, when I weighed myself.  

AGHHHHHHH  hopeless.

foiled by drunken snacking again!

Diet Crazed but Wearing Killer Shoes

I have been buying books & shoes both of which I cannot live without, working out on my elliptical machine & trying to diet both of which I would love to live without, & working on my coffee shop web page which I love to do.  Also, I've painted my bathroom "Topaz" which is, in a word, serene.  I think I will leave off any border or shelves and pictures and other crap that might disrupt me from achieving perfect zen like harmony upon entering the bathing room.  Hell, I might relax so much I drown.

Topaz...it doesn't even sound serene.  Sounds like something stupid, spazzy, loud, iritating, toe jammy stinky, yellow foul pus looking even.  But no...it is light coool sea "ish" green "ish" blue "ish".  I love it.  I want to paint everything this color.   Maybe I will too.

Tomorrow, Bitch Posse Rides...! Ole'!  Mostly I like to go afterwards...after the volleyball...to the bowling alley and drink beers and make fun of the guys in matching shirts as they throw their balls down the lanes.  We cheer but inside we are jeering...hee hee hee.  I mean, matching shirts?  Would they wear matching shirts with their wives?  ha!  I don't think so.  Male bonding...blegh

And so...like I said, I'm on a diet...hahahahahaahah  but really now, I am trying.  There are three of us who are weighing in on Fridays at the shop.  When I did my first weight I almost shit myself.  I thought, WHO IS THIS FAT FAT FAT FAT BITCH ON THIS SCALE AND HOW DID SHE GET INTO MY BODY!!!!  I HATE HER!  I still do actually but I know I must try.  I have printed up 8 by 11 signs that say, "YOU CAN DO IT!" and taped them up all over my house.  Mainly, the fridge and pantry.  Eye level.  YOU CAN DO IT!  If only I could put an electric shock on the handles.  sigh    I    Hate    Dieting but not as much as I HATE THAT FAT BITCH ON THE SCALE!!!!!!!

I gotta go...got a pain behind my eye...wonder why...

Goodbye CNN Hello Local News

Who does the world turn to for world news?  Of course, CNN.  "Oh don't panic" they say.  "Remain calm don't sell off everything will soon be okay." and then?  They pan to a shot of the Dow with the red arrow and rapidly spinning numbers.  They report wild eyed about collapse and spreading world market collapse.  Almost every interview, every story captioned in fire engine red with "Breaking News" with the very words that cause the public to panic.  WAKE UP CNN.  DON'T YOU GET IT....YOU ARE WORLD NEWS...PEOPLE BELIEVE YOU.  FIX IT...or quit trying to spread the panic.  What is the real agenda here...

ps...I am NOT under a Dr care for Paranoa...I'm just an average Jo Schmoe at the coffee shop.  Maybe it's time to turn on the local news about the local bake sale, the lost kitten saved by my neighbor, the fireman/farmer/football coach, the local high school volleyball/football/cross country team, and turn off WORLD NEWS LEADER CNN.

Watch This

I'm drinking a sugar free BAWLS and watching "The Brave One" with Jodi Foster & Terrence Howard, for the second time on HBO.  I love it.  But then, I always like to watch Jodi Foster's movies.  Either she picks well or she makes the movie her own  This movie reminds me of a cross between "Pump Up The Volume"  & City of Angels with the soundtrack, the way it is filmed, the grainy dark feel, the characters are interesting, believable, predictable yet still able to surprise...the plot itself is really disturbing on many levels.  Right up my alley though.  yup
