Quick and dirty update...

Instead of champagne, I decided on Friday night margaritas. Yeah, baby! Sooo, I go to the liquor store on the way home to get some tequila. For some reason I grab a bottle of Jack Daniels, then a lime at the register. Don't ask, cuz I just don't know. I then tell the cashier that I've been promoted and I'm gonna have some margarita fun - again, don't ask. He smiles, looks at the Jack Daniels and the lime, then back up at me and says "Congratulations." I skip out the door, and about 1/2 way home I realize that I am a gigantic retard. Jack-a-ritas? Oops. When I get home and tell Jim what I did, he laughs and offers to go exchange the Jack for Jose. Derrrrrrrrrr. In a big way. The guy at the liquor store must be thinking 'what the hell did she get promoted to? Executive ditch digging?'

Anyway, Mr. Cuervo and I are having a nice love affair tonight. I may be puking later.
Crazydogmama is bouncing off the walls!!!

I know, what's new...

but this is GOOD news! I just got a biiiiig promotion at work! With many more dollars! Weeeeeee! I am so excited that I may pee. My pants.

Oh, and by the way, I know I haven't been posting regularly, but if I don't start getting more than 2 readers a day, I'm shutting down this show. So tell your friends and family to read, damnit!

I hear a bottle of champagne calling my name.....excuse me.....

The traffic guy is NOT my friend, but Cherry NyQuil IS

So, not only have I been surviving on Cherry NyQuil for the past 7 days, but the radio traffic guy totally dis'd me. Yes, that's right. Let me share this special story with you.

We had a few days of hard rain, and that always means some sort of flooding in the rural area I live in. The other morning on the way to work, I ran into some crazy dead-stopped traffic. After an hour and a half of wanting to bash my head into my steering wheel, I found out that one of the bridges on my commute was closed due to flooding, and traffic was being re-routed and that was why it was so backed up. I got to work really late and hacking my head off because my NyQuil was wearing off. The next day was the same traffic mess, but I left a little early to try and avoid some of it. I was listening to my favorite talk radio station and the traffic report came on. The traffic guy said that some people had called in and were wondering why traffic was so bad in this area - and he responded that he had no idea and hadn't heard anything, but would look into it. I knew! I knew and the traffic guy didn't! I don't know why this excited me, but I decided to be a good citizen and call the radio station so that my co-commuters would understand why they were frustrated and stressed. I'm just that kind of gal. The radio guy answered and I explained the situation. He was very appreciative for my call and said he would relay the info to the traffic guy. He even asked my name so that I could get full credit. I told him.

All proud of myself, I turned the radio back on and awaited the next traffic update. Sure enough, the first thing he said was "We have received an answer to the traffic problems in blah-blah area from our nice caller Cheryl". He went on telling the whole Seattle area exactly what I told them, and kept thanking Cheryl for the information. Wow! I felt like a celebrity! But, oh no, no, that 15 minutes of fame would not last. They give the traffic update every 10 minutes, and of course since I wanted to keep hearing my name on the radio, I kept listening. In the very next update the dude says this: "Well, we took the chopper over blah-blah bridge and it appears to be open and traffic is flowing nicely, so I'm not sure what was going on there, but there really is no problem so never mind that last report." WHAT THE FUCK????

I had JUST passed two big orange signs that said the bridge was closed!!! And I was still stuck in traffic!!!! Oh.....Oh....wait a minute......

There goes a D.O.T. worker....and....he.....is....TAKING THE SIGN DOWN. It was a total conspiracy against me. They opened the mother fucking bridge not 5 minutes after I called. NOOO! I look like a fool! An idiot! A prank caller! But I was just trying to help!

I wanted to call back and tell them I wasn't crazy, but then I started thinking that they probably have caller ID and would yell at me or not let me call anymore, or report me as a stalker or something, so I didn't. I just sat there. I cussed out my radio and turned it off. That'll show 'em! I won't listen to them for the whole rest of the day! Screw the radio! Screw the commuters! Screw everybody!

I told Jim about my public embarrassment, but he just laughed at me. A lot. And then it hit me.

I need to get a life.

BLAAAAAAAAAH!

My throat is KILLING ME. I can barely swallow. I've been super sick since Thursday night. My throat hurts so bad right now that I can't sleep. Its like, 2:30 in the morning. Everybody is snoring and I'm walking around whining and bitching and no one can hear me! Blah! I just ate some ice cream - and although it tasted great, it didn't help my throat much. I'm going to go try and find something to watch on T.V., but my hopes are not high. This totally sucks.

All is fine in the dog food department here

I have received mail from concerned folks about the pet food recall going on - and if Louie and Mags were OK. They are great - I use Natural Balance dog food. I tried to switch them to cheaper food awhile back, but they wouldn't have it. I'm so glad! If I had been feeding them the recall food, I would be in full-on panic mode right now.

I know I suck, you don't have to tell me.

I have no excuse for not blogging, I just haven't wanted to lately. BUT, because I love you all so much, I'll blog just for you today. Last Friday my company left early at 1pm to go bowling for a little corporate competition. It was a hoot, especially the open bar part. Hehe. Double rum and coke and double margarita on the rocks if you must know... I got high girl's score at 151! Weeee! I didn't know I had it in me. After that (with the alcohol in me), Jim and I went to dinner at his ex-wife's house. I KNOW. We were there to discuss how to discipline the kid who has been getting in trouble lately. It went fine, nothing really juicy to report.

Then, all day Saturday and Sunday, we cleaned. We dusted, vacuumed, did laundry & dishes and generally were a very boring married couple. And you wonder why I haven't been blogging? Blah. Nothing exciting happening. And that is all. That is all I can think of to write. I'm eating a banana right now...I'm tired...really nothing to say.

These are the lies...

#2 - I never had to draw my gun as a cop.
#6 - I started smoking when I was 19, not 17.
#8 - I've only driven up to 90mph.
#10 - I've only been in one fight. It was with a girl named Shara in Jr. High. I kicked her ass.

I guess the skydiving thing is kinda iffy. My knees are shot and I'm too fat, but I guess if I were totally fit and trim and someone else paid for it, I MIGHT, and I say MIGHT do it again. Probably not, though, I'm getting old. My hay-day is over, I'm afraid. It was great fun, though, when I did it, and I have some amazing pics. I jumped 7 times.

Well, hello!

I know I've been a total slacker - I just haven't been in the blogging mood. You know what I mean? I've been in the "don't-get-up-from-the-couch-unless-you-have-to" kinda mood.

It snowed again last week and we got 9 inches. It melted the next day, but still. It is supposed to be 60 degrees tomorrow. The wackiness continues. Everyone has been sick at work, one by one, so the work has been piling up, and lo and behold I'm actually trying to change my eating habits AGAIN. I'm trying to do BFL-style eating, but reeeeeally small portions every two hours or so. For me, this means being constantly hungry for about two weeks (until I get used to it) even though I'm constantly eating. Having a half of a sandwich just makes my stomach angry. It's all like "Are you fucking kidding me?"

Anyway, I got tagged to do this stupid lie detector thingy. I am supposed to list off a bunch of things about myself and you are supposed to determine whether or not each item is true or false. So here goes, I guess.

1. I once vomited creamed corn all over the dinner table because my mom forced me to eat it.

2. I drew my gun only once when I was a cop.

3. My hair turned naturally curly overnight when I was 24.

4. I won't eat meatloaf.

5. I have had premonition dreams.

6. I started smoking when I was 17.

7. I threw a paper airplane at a corvette when I was young, and the guy slammed on his brakes and ran after me screaming obscenities.

8. I have driven a car at over 100mph.

9. I will never jump out of an airplane again, voluntarily.

10. I've been in many fights.

Let me hear those guesses people....which ones are false?
