{September 11, 2007}   No Thank You.

Please know that I’ve read your posts and I’ve watched your videos.  I’m crying though, and I can’t leave comments.  I just can’t.  Thinking about it still makes me cry.  I was pregnant with Ty, very pregnant, wondering what the hell was I thinking bringing another child into this world.  Trying to explain to my almost 4 year old why there were fires on TV, why preschool was closed, and why mommy and everyone else kept crying.  I’m sorry our country and it’s people went through that.  And I’m sorry that we all choose to relive it every year.  I’m not reliving it this year.  I can’t.  So please look down, and read about my son and his shark teeth, and smile.  Everyone can use a smile, especially today!

Look at what this girl sent me!!

She wants me to find true love, and no more wasting my time!!  I heart her!! 



{August 3, 2007}   Text Me!

I looked at my cell bill online today…apparently I like to text! Good thing it’s unlimited!!

So my ear is a little sore today. By sore I mean it was throbbing when I laid down last night and has a bit of blood today. I guess that’s normal though, and probably doesn’t help that I forgot to wash it this weekend because it was feeling fine. Guess this is why he said it’ll take a year to heal!

I have 4 day weeks all this month…well, you know, except last week, my 2 day week 😛 Makes me very happy, although I do love my job! Speaking of, we had a meeting today. Somehow talk turned to flying. Then the jokes started, about which airline is slower, later, etc. Out of no where, one guy pops off with a joke that slams “queers, lesbians, transvestites and stewardesses” all in one feel swoop (his words, NOT MINE!) No one laughed, everyone just got kinda quiet. One of the managers looked at him and said “You’re probably going to have to see HR about that one.” Honestly, it was hilarious, because it was SO inappropriate! I can’t believe the things some people say!!!!

This, of course, was followed up by a private conversation between my boss and I, where she said “I wore a tiara at my wedding, veils are for ugly brides!” I about fell out of my chair I was laughing so hard! It is true, I come to fun, not work. I have the best job in the world, with the best boss!!

So after our lunch meeting Kristen and I went for a walk, over the freeway, my favorite place (I love bridges!!). We found some tomatoes peaches, which she promptly started picking. It was hilarious, we’re in heels, in the dirt, stealing borrowing tomatoes peaches from someones tree that just happens to be hanging over the fence. I’m sure people think we’re insane!! We’re amused though, and that’s all that matters!

Oh yeah, Kristen is going to teach me how to swim! Yes, I know, you’re all thinking “Arlene, how can you possibly live in 206 degree weather and NOT know how to swim??” It’s a long story. But if Kristen has her way, I’ll know by the end of summer! First lesson is Wed 🙂 Wish me luck!

Random question…do you think chivalry is dead? I think my generation does…it’s sad.

Alright, back to work for me. I’m being a slacker! But I leave you with this:




{July 9, 2007}   Thief!!

Stole this from Teena:

Your Brain is Blue

Of all the brain types, yours is the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don’t try to think away your troubles.
Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.
You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

What Color Is Your Brain?





{June 20, 2007}   Seagrams

Said to me today:

“They open at 11, so should we leave at 10:45?”

(Without giving me a chance to answer)

“Did I say that out loud or did I just think it a lot?”

No more Seagrams for you toots!!

From now on when I can’t come up with a title for my posts, I’m just going to name it something random.

So someone googled “fuck in a nissan” and it landed them at my site. I bet they were disappointed that it was just some girl bitching about hers!! I mean, I don’t even have any good titties on my site to look at! I also get about 15 hits a day from people googling “Eye of Ra tattoos” Hope they’re not dissapointed by mine! Speaking of, I need to get a new pic of my tattoos up…haven’t taken any since I got the eye done, and it was still all fresh and stuff.

I’ve been out taking pics this weekend. Got some good sunflower shots yesterday, but my shots of the corn for TC looked like crap (in my opinion) so I didn’t post them. Ariel and I went up to the lake today to visit the glory hole and I got great shots up there!! And you know you guys know where to find my pics!

Little Frankie goes everywhere with us! He loves being in the car and I love taking him. We obviously don’t take him if we’re going in somewhere he can’t, because it’s WAY too hot to leave him in the car, but most of our running around is just the boring kind where he can tag along 🙂 He’s doing much better staying home now, and only cries when we first leave. We know this for sure because Sarah came down with the cold from hell and strep throat yesterday. Ariel and I were running non-Frankie errands, so he had to stay here. Since she was just in bed and not making any noise, he thought he was alone and was perfectly silent 🙂 WooHoo! That means taking him to San Diego will be no prob at all! We are going to have to practice pottying on the side of the road though, ’cause there will be no accidents in Sasha!  And for being such a good boy, he got his very first Kong today 🙂  It’ll be his “mommy is going to work” treat every day 🙂

Speaking of Sasha, I took her to a mechanic I trust that does all of my oil changes and such to get his opinion on whether or not whatever is going on with her is dealer worthy since it means me taking a day off of work. He could not find ONE THING wrong 😦 So I guess that means I’m going to have to suck it up and spend the day chillin’ at the dealership…fun for me! I’m kinda thinking I’m going to wait it out a bit, because he said he couldn’t find anything, and I trust him, so maybe I’ll see what the noise does before I waste my time.

Well I think that’s it for now…Ariel wants to see Nancy Drew, so maybe we’ll head and out do that…or maybe I’ll take a nap 🙂 Options are open at this point folks!
