Which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle are You?

You've been described as 'the brains' of your family or group of friends. You're the natural born, 'Mr. Fixit'. You're also considered the most reserved, preoccupied with your own little thoughts and ideas. But that doesn't mean you don't hang with your family and friends! But, you still find it easy to get lost in your own thoughts...daydreaming often. You'd rather talk things out than fight. You long for a day when there's nothing but peace in the world, and when you can finally rest with your own thoughts. Violence is something the world could completely live without. One of your labels may be, 'true to blue friend'. You're strong at heart and powerful at mind.

I'm sick! Can you believe the timing?! Roger brought home a cold virus from a guy he works with, and I caught it. I'm miserable....::pouts:: I'm running a fever, really sore throat, coughing (but coughing hurts my throat even more), runny nose, stuffy head, congested chest, uncomfortable because of temperature fluctuations and minor body aches. I'm going to get married in 3 days!!! This is a kind of stress that I didn't forsee, and never dreamed of happening! I really, *really* don't want to be sick on my wedding I went to the doctor yesterday, to try and nip it in the bud. He said, "it's just a cold." It has to run it's course. ::sighs::

Some of those questions were strange...
What exactly is "kinky shit" ?
What if the answer was sometimes? Does that constitute a Yes?
Anywho, here's mine:

You Know..

I had a few fleeting negative thoughts when I saw the commercial, I'd hate to think what she would have done if she'd seen the commercial as well:

- - - -
Dear Mr. Thatcher, I have been a loyal user of your Always maxi pads for over 20 years, and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core or Dri-Weave absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts. But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi-pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? Ever suffered from "the curse"? I'm guessing you haven't. Well, my "time of the month" is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into what my husband likes to call "an inbred hillbilly with knife skills." Isn't the human body amazing? As brand manager in the feminine-hygiene division, you've no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customers' monthly visits from Aunt Flo. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behavior. You surely realize it's a tough time for most women. In fact, only last week, my friend Jennifer fought the violent urge to shove her boyfriend's testicles into a George Foreman Grill just because he told her he thought Grey's Anatomy was written by drunken chimps. Crazy! The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in capri pants. Which brings me to the reason for my letter. Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: "Have a Happy Period."

Are you fucking kidding me?

What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness - actual smiling, laughing happiness - is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI, unless you're some kind of sick S&M freak girl, there will never be anything "happy" about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to the local Walgreens armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory. For the love of God, pull your head out, man. If you just have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make more sense to say something that's actually pertinent, like "Put Down the Hammer" or "Vehicular Manslaughter Is Wrong"? Or are you just picking on us?

Sir, please inform your accounting department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will certainly miss your Flexi-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bullshit. And that's a promise I will keep. Always.

Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a good V-day. Whether you did it alone, or had a sweety with you, I just hope you had a good day. ::hugs to you all::

I woke up to a phone call from my sweety. He tells me to look on my desk. Well, my kitties love to pull things off of my desk, so there wasn't anything there. I did find a card in my seat though. I open it, and this is what I read:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Then I open it and the inside reads:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

"I almost picked up a more romantic one, but when I saw that one, it was just too perfect," he says to me. I love him, he's so cute.

Later, he comes home from work with these:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Here are the roses today:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Two roses, for our second V-day together. ::grins happily:: They're so pretty, and smell so nice. That night we went to Hannibal Rising and Bueno for dinner. It was a very good day.

Bridal Shower

Momma picked me up at 9:30 on Saturday, and we went shopping at Sam's for food. We were there until 11-11:30, and drove back to Owasso to pick up Stacey. We waited a few minutes for her to arrive, and then we did all the shopping as planned. We went to Ehrle's party supply store, picked up some decorations and games, went to Deals, picked up some balloons and game prizes, and then went to Walmart to get the cake and last little items.

We got to Aneta's (my momma's mother) house a little late, and had to rush to put up decorations, set-up the tables, chop what needed chopped, and display what needed displayed. Momma did the chopping and displaying, while Stacey and I did the decorations. Everyone started showing up, and we finished in just barely enough time.

We ate, drank the punch my momma made (made with Lemon-Lime soda and Life Savers Sherbet - It was soooo yummy!), and chatted. My sister Miranda, Ray and his bunch, Dale and his bunch, Lori, Emily, and Michelle, Paula, Roger's aunt Saundra, and Tim was there. Obviously Aneta, Ashley, and Lewis were there, it's their house, and Me, my Momma, and Stacey of course. It was a full house!

After everyone ate, I opened gifts. We got foot care products from Roger's cousin Devin, a beautiful porcelain frame and copper fountain from his aunt and uncle Saundra and Ken, a waffle maker and purple towels from Oma and Paula, a blue sheet set from Aneta and Lewis, the rest of the purple towel set from Ray and Tina, a beautiful candle from my mommy, a wonderful skillet and bamboo utensils from Dale and Kim, two sexy lingerie items from Paula, erotic dice with some fun stuff from Lori, a night gown, body massager, and really good smelling candle from Brian and Val (list will be updated as more comes in, and the wedding comes and goes).

After gifts were opened, we played "I Never" and "Wedding Bell Bingo" until all the prizes were given away. The games were a hit. Everyone had fun.

Then we cut the cake, and everyone ate cake. Overall, the party went really really well. I had a lot of fun, and really enjoyed the interaction with other people. I really had a lot of fun.

Emotional Stress mentioned that I don't sleep well at night, right? Well, I go to sleep with Roger at 9 or 10, depending on when he goes to bed, and wake up at 1:30-2 am every time. Unless I wait until later to go to bed, like 12 or something, then I seem to be okay.

Any who! Yesterday morning I finished up some things I was working on for the wedding and was relaxing on the couch when I heard a racket at the front door. I waited a few minutes and then went to check some things out. I have a Happy Valentine's Day thing on the door, and it was blowing in the wind, so I decided to adjust it a little so it wouldn't catch the wind so easily (it gets *really* windy here). I stood in the door the whole time, and was only there for 5 minutes, if that. Then I continue to relax on the couch. Roger gets up at 5, takes a shower, and gets ready for work. He is just about to give me a kiss and head out the door when he asks, "have you seen Sugar this morning?" "Umm...well...when I first got up, yea, but since then...come to think about"

Then ensued the kitty the heart stopping non avail. So then he rattles the food container and puts some food in the bowl...also to no avail. Then he asks, "did you have the front door open at some time?" ::sighs:: "She couldn't have...I was standing in the door the whole time...but yea". got out somehow, quickly ran past me in the small amount of time I had the door open.

Roger called in from work and I got dressed. Then we walked around the entire apartment building, in the alleyways and everything. Then we came back to the apartment to check if we just missed her, didn't see her, and got in the truck to drive around the building and surrounding streets. We looked for about an hour, then decided we'd have better luck looking when the sun came up. I was a bawling, nervous, worried wreck. It was really cold and windy, and she'd never been outside because she'd never tried to go outside before and had been outside for at least 3 hours. Well, we pulled up and went for the door. She must have recognized the sound of his truck, because she came running. I just hugged her and cried some more. I don't want to prematurely lose my kitty cat.

Then, today at about 11 am I was talking to Roger on the phone. He got a break at work, and was having a really bad day, and just wanted to talk to me. So, I'm sitting on the couch talking to Roger, and happened to look out our balcony window. I see a person convulsing on a stretcher, fire trucks, water hoses stretched out, ambulances, and water every where. I go out on the balcony, and see plumes of thick dark smoke, and fire people running around every where. In a nutshell, my apartment building, the Avondale Apartments, about two buildings from mine, is blazing. Smoke billowing out of 16 units burning. It was pretty freaky, and way too close to home. No one was hurt, because the building was empty. Those people are going to come home from work to nothing...everything burned...I feel so sorry for them.

So much going on...stresses me out. I'm really glad I got my kitty back, and that it wasn't *my* apartment on fire, but I still got stressed.

I don't think they should either. I don't know who "MSI" is, but oh no!! a Christian group got their feathers ruffled, better push thier morals onto everyone else. Just because it is listed as "religious" doesn't mean Christian Gospel, there are other religions out there you know.

I got this off of Liz's Myspace bulletins. I've mentioned her before, here's her Myspace link if you want to check it out. She's a cool person. She is my sister Jennifer's best friend, and has been for decades. She is pregnant right now, and about to pop. She is incredibly happy and very happily and newly married. She is also a very very good photographer. Sorry, little props for Liz. ;o)

MSI vs. iTunes

Mindless Self Indulgence have been asked by iTunes to change the genre that they are filed under. Presently MSI is filed with their distributor as 'Religious/Inspirational' because of their devout fan base and cult-like following (currently having shipped 180,000 CD's in the last year alone). Apparently this has angered some extremely conservative Christian organizations who have filed complaints with the digital music giant to get the band's music removed from that category. Several Christians seemed to have purchased the seemingly offensive material, on faith, even though it clearly was marked as being explicit material. Part of what seemed to annoy them was how well MSI's album, "You'll Rebel To Anything", sold, reaching Number 27 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts! When asked what he thought of this controversy, MSI's singer, Jimmy Urine had this to say: "It was iTunes, not us, that interpreted "religious" to mean Christian/Gospel. What is offensive to some people is obviously inspirational to others. To our fans this IS inspirational music. I have no intention of changing the genre listing of this album."
