Maybe later today we'll go and find our special "Christmas Tree";yes I know I said Christmas tree because it's the way it's gonna be in our home a Christmas Tree not a holiday tree. A HolidayTree to me implies parties and more parties, a Christmas Tree reminds me of the special time of the year. I'd like to afford a beautiful Douglas Fir but my purse can only handle a "Charlie Brown Tree". I don't mind it at all if you want to take away pretty much everything I'm used to;so I hope you understand when I don't greet you with "Happy Holidaze",and I don't get you a present because the presents are symbolic of the Three Wise Men and the gifts that they gave to the baby. The green tree is a symbol of rebirth , spring time new growth. My mind is all a mess today, I found out some sad news and this has really hit me hard. My dear dear friend past away. Right now I'm sorta in limbo, reflected on the how we met, the good times, what a great guy he was he loved writing poems. His little dog has been searching for him and has tears in her eyes. Well, I 've got to go and help out in some capicity not sure what just yet. I keep wandering in and out of concesionus. I need to go and pull myself together, right now all my inter strenght has been zapped out of me. I just want to get in a fetal position and cry, but that won't change anything. If you feel sick at all this winter solice please go to the doctor , please don't just shrug it off as "Oh it'll pass". Ok, that said, I've got to get moving and make some phone calls. Love and Peace to all. Skyeblue.

That's my birthday song to me.

Truckin' that's my birthday song to me, I look forward to days off but god do I get cranky, bitchy and down right "Goatheaded" when eight hours before going back on duty. Andrea swears I'm on a perement pms. No, it's that I hate having to work for money. I feel that since I was once a princess that my allotement should never have run out. However I gave up that tittle when I was four and my Mom and Dad went separate ways. I don't blame him for spending the rent money on a race car even if he didn't know diddly about racing,. He built me a great go-cart using the old lawn mower , so what if he forgot to take the blades off and there was no brakes. And then, there was the time I was convined I was the daughter of Rhett Butler and Scarlet O'Hara because my Daddy bought me a pony. Ok , so it was a race horse that hated racing. He got her for a real sweet deal. Well going to ride her was soon to come to an end when she threw "Bonnie Blue Eyes " off and I cracked my skull. It wasn't long after that episode that his visiting rights came to an end. The day my Daddy let me hold a ferral simense cat. Yep, it sunk it's fangs into my left wrist and he had to rush me to the emergency room. I felt bad for Daddy, the poor guy, he had to explain to my Mom why I was about to get rabies shots. Of course after the phone call to the woman who gave Joan Crawford acting lessons, the nurse returns to say the shots won't be necessary. My Mom had just had to take me to the emergency room because I fell off the side of the house they were building next to us , it was a split level, so I had just recently had a tentius shot for scraping most of my ankle off. But we won't mention that, that never happened. Sometimes I know I'm my Dad, I do some of the most craziest insane things but they are to make others happy at whatever the outcome to me. I miss you Daddy.

Truckin' by Grateful Dead.

Truckin' got my chips cashed in . Keep truckin', like the do-dah man Together , more or less in line just keep truckin on. Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street. Chicago, New York, Detroit, and it's all on the same street, your typical city involved in a typical daydream hang it up and see what tomorrow brings. Dallas, got a soft machine, Houston too close to New Orleans; New York's got the ways and means ; but won't just let you be, oh no. Most of the cast that you meet on the streets speak of true love. Most of the time their sittin' and cryin' at home one of these days they'll know they better get going Out the door and down the street all alone. Truckin' like the do-dah man. Once told me , "You got to play your hand sometimes they ain't worth a dime if you don't lay'em down". Sometimes the light's all shinning on me other times I can barely see, lately it's ocurred to me what a long , strange trip it's been. What in the world ever became of sweet Jane, she lost her sparkle , you know she isn't the same. Livin' on reds, vitiman c and cocaine , All a friend can say is "Ain't it a shame?" Truckin up to Buffalo, Been thinkin' you got to mellow slow. Takes time you pick a place to go , just keep truckin' on. Sittin' and starring out the hotel window got a tip they gonna kick the door in, I'd like to get some sleep before I travel, but if you got a warrant I guess you're gonna come in. Busted, down on Bourbon Street, set up like a bowlin' pin , Knocked down, it gets to wearin' thin, they just won't let you be, oh no. You're sick of hangin' around and you'd like to travel, get tried of travelin' and you want to settle down. I guess they cann't revoke your soul for tryin' . Get out of the door and light out and look around. Sometimes the light's are shinnin' on me other times I can barely see, lately it's ocurred to me, what a long , strange trip it's been. Truckin' I'm goin' home ,Whoa whoa baby, back where I belong . Back home sit down and patch my bones and get back truckin' on . Hey now get back truckin' on.

Nothing going on but da rent...

Tonight tonight is Sunday night oh what a wonderdus thing. It's my Friday wee whoopeee! All I have to do is survive the next ten hours, the next horrific ten hours. The best part is my regular helper has been on vacation since the 17th. and won't be back until the first of Dec. It's been like a vacation for me, one that didn't cost me a dime. The fill-in guy has been a pleasure to work with and get to know. Last Sunday they tried to kill us both with the 120 packages of various sizes of Christmas deliveries per all eight store. It nornmally takes us an hour to do the first store last week it took us 2 hours. They'll be no suprises this week, we are expecting the long night to repeat it's self. Both of us were in "P A I N" come sunrise last Monday morning. Well, I'm gona fix me a bite to eat and some fresh coffee and get rolling.

Yes, aliens. I have figured out who these spammers are aliens. You'll have to think for yourself on this one, but I was over at my buddy's blog, "Jeff the comic" I'm Too Stupid For Something Clever" and I was sidetracked from his article on Glofish when I came across the Weekly World News. Ok, I 'll admit it that's the sort of junk I read at the grocery store, mainly because I don't care which star is getting married divorced or pg. I want to know when the Aliens are coming because my mind is always out in space so I'd simply like to know when to expect these guest. So I'm glancing thru the different headings and it hits me like a light out of the blue, spammers are aliens.What does you have a great blog but if you need flashlights and sterno you should visit my site on weed wackers have to do with any thing. Here's where you have to help me. I think they are telling us they will be arriving at night and it might be cold, hence the can of sterno. Now the weed wacker bothers me, are we suppose to have one handy even if it doesn't work anymore, is the weed wacker a symbolic figure? I don't know. Thoughts anyone .

The Big Shopping Day.

Oh last night at work was too much fun. Everywhere we went at 2 a.m. there were people waiting in line , you could almost hear them chanting"Open Open". Being the good sport that I am I gave a couple of short supportive blast on the air horn. Yes from atop of the freeway overpass we salute you, the brave that have adopted the USPS creed, "No rain, sleet or snow will keep us from spending our dough". I wonder if shoppers have a fighting song; "This mall is your mall this mall is my mall from California to the New York Islands from the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters this mall was made for you and me. As I was driving that ribbon of highway I saw above me the endless neon signs I saw below me the valley of parking lots this mall was made for you and me. I roamed and rambled until I found a spot that I couldn't quite fit into squeezing out the window I followed the footsteps that lead to the sparkling racks of dicounted merchandise then to the diamond displays that glisten and gleemed this mall was made for you and me"... Well I don't think Woody Gruthrie had that in mind at all. I had to work early Thanksgiving morning, I noticed a trend that was going on, men were at the grocery stores asking the poor sales people all sorts of questions. I felt for her as she rapidly fired off the answers without ever blinking. "Where's the balsic vinager? " Aisle four , "Where is the ....." I was only in the store long enough to get a soda and get back into traffic. There is not , "NOT" enough money in the world to get me to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving, besides there's nothing I want "That" bad. My mother took me shopping with her one year after Thanksgivng it has left me emotionally scarred. Those nice women any other day of the week transform into something that even the creature from the Black Lagoon would dissaprove of their behavior. It was two hours later before my mother found me again to a five year old that's a very long time. I was hiding in the cabinet under neath the towels display. If your one of those shop til you drop shoppers I wish you a nice hot foot bath when you get home. I made my purchases before getting home this morning, alka-selser a bottle of oj and some vodka. It's raining here at this post time, so I'm going to take advantage of it and go to bed while it's good good good sleeping weather. I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday.

Thanksgiving With The Boys

Well it won't be the Village People but it'll be my boys from pool. Every year my guys have the best turkey dinner you could hope for in life. They do the cooking and cleanning and they even brew they're own beer. There's only three of us Ladies that are invited to attend, my girl, my ex-g/f and yours truly. We're bringing pumpkin pies and the Redi Whip if Andrea can keep it away from me long enough to get it over to their house. This has been a tradition for nearly twenty years, I cann't imagene eating any other place. After dinner we play pool and they even have some pinball machines it's too cool.

I'm feeling all mushy, yikes!

Ok, I just want to say this right now before I get real busy next week and time slips away. This is a big "Thank You" to all of you who have visited this site and left a message. I consider all of you my Friends and I want to wish each and every one a enjoyable Thanksgiving. Alot of ya'll will have a really pretty traditional Thanksgiving with the winter scenery I suppose, (I'd love to see pictures) and some of us will have that turkey with shorts on, (not the turkey) although that would be funny. The thing that I really want to say is let's not forget about our love ones that are in the Armed Forces no matter where they are stationed. My Thanksgiving prayer is that next Thanksgiving they are home with their families. It's hard for me to realize that another year has come and gone. I for one am going to try and take time to enjoy each day that I have from here on out. "HAPPY THANKSGIVING"

That's the story and I'm sticking to it...

Does anyone remember the epsiode of "I Love Lucy" where she has the Loving Cup on her head and keeps getting on the wrong subway train? All was going as planned last night we watched the other team win 9-4 and move on to the next round in the playoffs. Ten thrity came and we said goodnight and headed for the concert. Right away we got on the train that would take us to the connecting train in record time 9 minutes. We go up the long steep stairs and across the street to the Fairy bldg. and wait for the next train. Board the cable car and we're almost there to the concert. My heart is racing I can hardly wait to get there and get my pictures. I look out the window, wait a minute where are we going? Didn't we just walk thru here? "Get off, stop digging for your transfer and get off now. She stops looks up and yep we are on the wrong cable car. "Get off". I just said that, didn't I? So we get off go back down the long steep stairs and now here comes the train again. I say you know what, what time is it? 10:57p.m. Well why don't we be smart and get on the train headed for your house before it becomes a crowd. Ok. So we go and get a six pack go to her house and watch "Stickmen" a pool movie and pass out. It was a fun evenning no matter what did or didn't happen, just getting out of this studio and staying out all night was worth it.

Wish us Luck!

Tonight my best friend and I are going to do our best to get as close to the Rolling Stones concert as possible. I've had Andrea check the camera twice to make sure it's working. The game plan is you don't think I'd really tell ya! ha ha! After my friends game in the playoffs we head down to SBC Park that is if they haven't changed the name again . I haven't a clue but I have no doubt that I will have some sort of wild story to share tomorrow. Pool playoffs don't get over for a few hours by then the concert will be well under way. One way or another I will have pictures of either the Stones or something. I know, could I get any more positive sounding. Well, look at the time, I gotta go get ready for this adventure. Running shoes maybe the attire for the evenning.

My friend sent me this picture , I'm laughing so hard I 've forgotten what I was thinking.

Sunday, November 13, 2005

This is an album cover to the group "It's A Beautiful Day". (and that's all folks!).

Today i'm gonna.....

I'm plotting to go take the camera and go on a walking tour of the City. Ok, maybe just outside down the street and back. The weather is just right for my little white chicken leggs to be outside. It's just like with the three bears not too hot, not too cold, It's Just Right! So, why am I still sitting here? Good question. I'm still sitting here because I thought I'd ask Andrea to go with me. It's a little more fun with two people than with one. However , by myself I could walk and enjoy the day as oppose to running and being in a hurry. Hmmm, decisions. I'll ask her anyway.

As Close To A Proffessional Game As You Can Get!

There was a slight shiver in the evening air as we made our way to the bar for the first night of the playoffs. We have four players on our team but only three of us were present. It was a race to nine and that's it. Repeated calls to our fourth player was to no availe, we were already down four games before we even began the night. My game can't be counted on, our top player had just flown in from Seattle and was discomeboomerated from the flight. I forgot to bring a score sheet,so while I ran home, we began play and was marking it down on a cocktail napkin. The other player who has almost had as bad a season as mine was sinking everything in sight. 7:30P.M. Play begins- We win first match. The mood is positive, we're charged up. 10:30 We are tied at 8 All. The player who was sinking everything had tied the score , we felt it only fitting that he continue and go for the "Holy Grail". 11 P.M. the two of them lagg for break, even that was real close, so our Man was a Gentleman and he offers to rack. The other player breaks and comes within the smallest know fraction from sinking the eight ball on the break. The eight ball is hanging over the edge of the side pocket throughtout the whole game. One miscalcualted stroke could render either team out of the playoffs. Our guy would shoot make a pocket then miss. Their guy shoots makes a pocket then a miss. 11:55 time is standing still now, it's like in very slow motion , all were quiet, they both have only one ball to pocket and then on to the eight ball. However, they have locked each other up on the left corner pocket. The only play is a L O N G S H O T from the top of the table to the center dot and back up, (looks like a "V"), first their guy tries it's a legal hit but doesn't break his ball out, our man tries same thing, hits but the stripe refuses to break free from the solid. 11:57 they do it again the two ball dislodges itself from off the rail. The play goes back to our guy. He chalks, he breathes, lines his shot up the cue ball is rolling with such a determined force it strikes the 14 ball and kicks itself into the pocket. The other team gets ball in hand on the 2 ball . Their player puts stop on it the 2 goes in leaving the cue ball slightly to the side of the eight who has been residing in that side pocket the whole game. 12Midnight, the eight ball is pocketed and they advance to the second round of the playoffs. The other team earned their right to advance to the next level. Our Guy went 4-0 last night his first 4-0. We were so Proud of him, he kept focused even when the pressured was up to "Whoopie". We let him play his game, we sat still and stayed by the table for support as if he needed any! After the game we did shots of tequila and with a Rebel yell we made a pact to return next season as a Team.

47 More Days til Christmas!

I was reading over in the Atlanta Journal this morning after I came back from voting. I got up and went and voted thought I'd be the first one there, Ha! There were four more ahead of me. Guess I'm not an early bird after all. I checked in with the first set of people to get my ballot, and one of the persons made the comment that all women live in my apartment building! It didn't hit me until after I had finished voting but I find that sort of comment distrubing. I explained to the person that that building is reknown for hosting Opera stars, Ballet performers and other persons in the Arts . Finally I get my ballot and begin to vote. I will talk more about this after 7P.M. tonight. I go to turn it in and the ballot machine is not working at 7:15 A.M. already there's a problem. They say I can try or I can put it in the slot. I say, "Is a Humanoid going to count these votes by hand?" "Yes". "Ok as long as Bush isn't re-elected, I guess it'll be ok."*********** Christmas already*** Two weeks ago I watched as Christmas trees slowly began to emerge from the secrect dark closets of the retail stores neeked. The next night there they were in all their splendore and glory beaming to the world as if they were lighthouses. I had already mentioned to my co-worker that real soon the Christmas tree lots would be going up and the trucks would start rolling in loaded with trees. He just laughed,yeah right. The next night there they were. As if it were some big shocking surprise he remarks."Look! Christmas trees and they're all decorated!" I think this is one of the reasons I decided that I didn't like working retail the managers rush seasons and no sooner than I'd get one display set up they'd want to move it and put up seasonal display. Then one time I worked at a floral and plant company we got to decorate the Embaradero with pointessa's OMG! That's proably why I won't buy one and they are posionious to cats as well as misteltoe. Then there's the year we had to decorate twenty five Christmas trees. Talk about Lightmares! What a tangled mess that was, but we got it done just the two of us. My friend told me she saw white spots for days. Last Friday, I saw a tractor pulling one of those boxes that people use as an office, I told my friend that's going over near your poolhall for a Christmas tree lot. She comes home that night and tells me I was right on the money. Well! I guess real soon I'll need to try on swimsuits!!!!

I Didn't Forget!

I didn't forget to say I love you. I didn't forget to call someone up and just chit-chat for awhile. I didn't forget to remember you're birthday. I know you think that I'm simply wrapped up in "ME" but I'm not., for you see the things I do are because of you. *** That was my greeting card. I think it needs some cute picture to go with it, maybe soft warm and fuzzy. Something that I'd like to snuggle up to like a Teddy Bear. I dunno know but I'd like to have a roaring fire to sit and warm by right now. It's rainning here and they say it's only for tonight. I like to sit on the couch and watch TV with the logs cracking and popping making me jump every once in awhile. I just watched the movie"EVOLUTION" that was a cute movie. It has David Duchovny ,Julianne Moore, Orlando Jones and SeannWilliams Scott in the movie. I'd never seen it so it was nice to see something for the first time. There's episodes of "MASH" that I've never seen before so you can see that alot of stuff is a first run for me. I don't watch alot of TV. Well, I wanted to go pratice some pool tonight. If can you believe it we made it to the playoffs. I don't want to lose any games tomorrow night. I'd like to advance to the third round. So far out of thirty teams we placed 22nd. and we're tied with another team at that spot. Unfortunately for my ratings I allowed things to get in my way and my ranking has suffered this season. It's time for me to take that ride on the river of Calgon and let everything just drift away, but first a glass of wine and some candles .

100th post!

Ha! I had my 100th post and I didn't even know it. It just happened , no needles, no pain , no ill side effects. No headache, no going blind from blogging too much and w/o supervision. On to more important stuff. I got my cell phone Thrusday. Tell me does this sux or what? Who am I suppose to call at 4 A.M. in the morning? When you normal people are up I'm asleep, so please don't call me. My friend calls and tells me she couldn't leave a voice message, Well, that's because I figured I'd proably be awake when anyone called me and why waste three dollars. That's a coffee and a donut to me! I give my number to my co-worker so he can get a hold of me. He calls at midnight, "I thought we were suppose to be there at ten p.m.". What time do we start every night? Two a.m. ok, see you at two. Oh the joys of life! Why are we smart people surrounded and out numbered by dimwitts? Are they there to make us look brighter than we are? Is there some Divine plan that we are trying to fulfill? I'm glad I'm only assigned one I couldn't handle an office full. Last night we switch roles, I like to do this once in awhile, breaks the night up. I must be the bionic woman we were done 1/2 the time. Changing the subject now. Today is our MVP pool match, Andrea ask me if I'm going. My record for this season is bad, but not horrible , so no why would I even be considered for MVP? I'm still on the stats but barely. Well , I suppose I'll go get some sleep now. Have a great weekend ya'll.

This is how I feel about waking up!

Friday and Fries.

This has been a fun week but to me it seems like it lasted 31 days! Now for the fun filled food feast that will take me into Summer trying to work off a few turkey legs. I don't know if there is a big difference between half and half for my coffee and lowfat. I do know that the lowfat doesn't make me feel like a helium balloon. I have the Mac and Cheese for that feeling. I've cut out donuts and that seems to help but then I've only exchanged them for cheetos. I saw a program on tv the other night about organic foods. I think I'll give them a try and see if they'll pass my taste buds. I'm getting by now on two cups of coffee as appose to all night long one cup that never runs out. (I think I just made up a word). The fast food's have been eliminated from my regular routine. I only like home made french fries ever since I babysitted my nephew and he threw out a container of fries full of ketchup onto a motorcycle cop. The cop pulled alongside of me and gave me this glarring look, I motioned that they weren't mine, I meant the kids in the back seat not the fries. All I really know is that Kristy Ally is looking "Mighty Fine" and I'm not. To night tonight Price Charles and Camilla arrive, well that's nice. Bully for them! I think I saw on the telly where Camilla walked into a glass door, I guess she was mesmerized by her reflection. Don't ya hate it when that happens. I had to switch to graveyard because I've run out of strangers to wave at and get upset when they don't wave back. You can blame this on the french fries they make me have the hiccups. Are they the gov't ever gonna let us clone ourselves? I got 16 personalities that need to get up and go to work! (Not Really) but which one of us answered! Does any one else out there in Blog land work graveyard? If so how many hours of sleep do you get? My average is two hours and someone some where when I least expect it wakes me up for no good reason. Last night they woke me up to all the lights on in the apartment we live in a studio how many lights do you really need on at one time? I keep loosening the one by the bed (my bed is a loft bed which means I'm sleeping very close to the ceiling ok) I don't jump up unless I want to pop my head thru the floor of the apartment above us. Oh wait we are the top floor well any way you get the point. Sooo I keep loosenning the light near the bed and they keep replacing it. No they don't simply turn it. I know because I've watched them. Then one day I was determined that I wasn't getting up for no body! I played DEAD! I should have gotten an academny award for that performance. It was hard not to burst into laughter. Oh here's a dumb joke I heard, "What do you call a witch's purse?" a hag-bag. I warned you it was dumb. Well I'm gonna close now . I'm gonna try and get some sleep while everyone is out.

My friend sent me this so I thought I'd share.

Well alright!

I wasn't feeling so good on Tuesday. I think it was the fact that October was over and the events were all done and the candy was all eaten and oh shut up already! Then I started to write yesterday but I still wasn't in the mood and I had an appointment . However! On the way home we got caught up in a rag-tag protest. On the scale of 1-10 this was poorly organized and it had a splinter group that tried to be bad. They needed to advertise it more and maybe perhaps there would have been more support. They even had Cindy Sheenan there but did anyone know about the rally, nope! All I saw was senior's in those electric go carts blocking traffif!Oh yeah and the riot cops ready to take down any senior that didn't get up out of the street. I over heard one protester say,"Well my knees have had it for today"! By sunset all the protester had dispersed and gone home. Goodnight!
