Irritated

For the horrific price of $100, we can both get our gas tanks filled! Weeeeee! OMG. Gas prices SUCK. How in the hell are we supposed to pay this? and it keeps going up! I used to be able to fill my tank for $13. The world is coming to an end.

Oh, and its National 'Take your damn kids to work day' - and my work HONORS this. I get to work with a bunch of screaming brats today. Can you say MONGOLIAN CLUSTER FUCK? I knew you could.

I was awarded a Thinking Blogger Award from Yerdoingitwrong! Can you believe it??? THINKING? ME? Ba-HA!! Wasn't aware I did that. Especially here at the CDM bloggery. Nevertheless she said some incredibly wonderful things about me and I am eternally grateful. She is the sweetest and funniest girl I've ever met and I'm honored to be her friend. We were inseparable at one time and have some seriously great memories. We don't see each other much now because we live a bit far and she has a new baby who is SO CUTE YOU WANT TO CHEW ON HIS LITTLE TOES that keeps her busy, but when we do have a chance to get together, it is like no time has passed at all.

Well, how this works is -

1. If (and only if) you are tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

I would put yerdoingitwrong as my first thinker blogger award, but I probably can't do that since she's already gotten one and that would be breaking the rules, but just so she knows I would pick her, and OMG this is a major run-on sentence so whatever.

OK, here goes:

1. BOA (Broke and Angry) - always a treat to read. He is very passionate about illegal aliens and Wells Fargo. All around a nice whiner that will make you laugh. :) Also, newly married - which makes him a prime target for us old married folks to tease and give stupid advice to!

2. Yogagirl - she is great! She is a yoga instructor and knows everything about yoga. She is inspiring and funny and also a sweetheart - one of the very first blogs I read and we bonded nicely cuz she has a really cute fuzzy doggie! She is aslo quite possibly the best decorator EVER.

3. Otter - this Southern belle is HYSTERICAL. Not only does she write well, she, like, KNOWS PHYSICS and shit! She was my very first commentor. She also has a cute little baby boy and is a jewelry maker, knitter and cook extraordinare!

4. Skwigg - Skwigg is AWESOME. If you want to lose weight or become a ninja fighter - she's your girl! Seriously! I would not want to piss Skwigg off. She is also funny and real and a super interesting person. Even if you aren't into fitness she will keep you entertained with her 3 crazy dogs. She is definately an honorary crazydogmama!

5. Spank Your Inner Moppet - Colleen! Not only a great writer, but witty and sweet! She cracks me up too, and...you guessed it! A cute doggie! She will also kick your ass ninja-style.

Well, I have to say, it was very difficult to pick only 5. There are so many of you that I would put up there! Basically, if you are on my links list, I wanted to nominate you. I love you all! and you all keep me inspired to blog!

HERE IS SOME MORE CONTENT FOR THIS POST, AS IF IT WASN'T LONG ENOUGH ALREADY:

I was also tagged to do an "interview", so yerdoingitwrong asked me these questions and now I'm going to answer them. If someone wants me to interview them, let me know! Don't expect me to do it quickly, though, cuz I'm a lazy-ass.

1.) You've been married a long damn time. What three pieces of advice would you give to someone just starting their journey?

Wow. I have been married a long time. Almost 13 years. Crap. I guess my first piece of advice would be to let the little things goooooooo....don't get all ramped up over dumb shit. Two: um, when you fight (and you know you will) don't bring up crap from the past. Stick to topic. If you don't, every little thing you have ever done will bite you in the ass. Three: enjoy each other. Make sure you take advantage of all the things you like about your spouse. If you like movies - watch lots - if you like to talk - chat it up, if you like theme parks - go. Be best friends.

2.) If you could spend a month anywhere and money was not an issue where would you go and why?

Hmm. I guess I would travel Europe with my hubby. Germany, Italy, France - those places. He has been there and has always wanted to take me. I have been NO WHERE. Seriously. I've been to like, 3 fucking states. That are close by. I need some culture. Although, laying on the beach drinking margaritas in Bora Bora for a month doesn't sound bad either.

3.) If your life were going to be made into a movie what actors/actresses would play the following roles and why?
Hehe. this is silly.
You: Some batshit crazy blonde. Maybe the role Kelly Lynch played in Warm Summer Rain. No explanation needs to be given, right? (Great flick, by the way. A Crazydogmama fav.)
Jim: Kevin Costner. Jim's sense of humor reminds me of Kevin in the movie Bull Durham. And he's handsome! :)
Your mom: Sally Fields. She looked like her in her younger days - and she is short and sassy like that.
Your dad: This one is hard. Dan Akroyd? I don't know why. Maybe because he is a big silly guy?
Jim's son: He kind of reminds me of Zach Braff from Scubs and The Garden State. But cooler.

4.) Tell us about your best drunk moment.

BEST drunk moment? or STUPIDEST drunk moment? I'll go with stupid. I drank 9 double rum and cokes in a small dive bar when I first met Jim. I then proceeded to tell some guys in the bar that Jim could kick their ass. Collectively. We left and I drove down the wrong side of the road. When we got to Jim's place, I fell on my face in the middle of the street. Then, I puked on his carpet and he had to call my dad (who he had never met) and tell him I was passed out drunk on his couch. Jim's mother managed the apt. complex we were in (Jim's apt.) and before she met me, had to replace the carpet in that apt. because of my really lovely puke. One of my shining moments, don't you think?

5.) Describe your perfect day.

I win, inherit or find millions of dollars. Then, do whatever the hell I want!

FEAST!

OK y'all, I just possibly watched the best horror movie on the planet. I have a new favorite - it may even surpass Texas Chainsaw Massace, if that is even possible.

Jim and I had "Horror Fest" starting Friday night. (it was Friday the 13th, you know!) We rented 6 horror movies and had popcorn and candy.

"Feast" is FUCKING AWESOME. I mean it. It has everything - a generous amount of gore, appropriate suspense, a good story, and the most hilarious script I've ever heard. Even the monsters are good. I was never bored, and I think in one part I laughed so hard I peed a little - and it was obvious that it was the director's intention for you to laugh. The director takes every horror movie cliche and fucks with it. At first I thought, "ok, this is corny" - but NO, its not. The only corniness is intentional - and the rest is like OMG did that just happen? When's the last time you could say that about a horror movie? I've been so disappointed with movies in the last 10 years or so. Every now and then one comes out that I like, but I'm never so "wowed" that I'm clapping at the end.

I'm buying this movie. Seriously, if you are a horror fan - you'll like it.

As for the other 5 movies I rented...eh.

Unrest - it was ok - slow start. Pretty good rental.
See no Evil - lacking. A couple of good kill scenes.
Hard Candy - good acting, decent movie, but I wouldn't buy it.
Pulse - stupid.
The Pumpkin Karver - I wanted to rip my own eyeballs out. I was laughing, but it wasn't the director's intention...

A little something for those who like current events...

My Super-Awesome Thursday So Far

I woke up every 2 hours last night. Which is nothing new. I'm not particularly stressed or anything, I just have sleeping issues. I can fall asleep in 8 nano-seconds, but then I keep waking up. I actually went to see a specialist on Tuesday about this and he wants me to go to a sleep clinic so they can figure out what's going on with me. Great. Strangers watching me sleep. That should be neat.

I don't know what else to say. I've really got blogger's block. I could like take a picture of my hand or something, but I'm not sure that would captivate you.

Oh, here's something. Please tell me you wouldn't buy this sculpture.

Friday Fun

Well, I'm being hounded to post, but I don't know what to say, so here's goes nothing. Hubby and I went to dinner and a movie last night. I unhinged my jaw and ate a Bonzai Burger at the Red Robin (Yuuuum!), then we went to see "The Reaping". We liked it, although its getting horrible reviews. It wasn't scary, but it was an interesting story line - and I love Hillary Swank. I am totally dragging ass today now, though. And that is all the excitement. Truly. I have no idea what we're doing this weekend - except I know we are going to Jim's parent's house for Easter dinner. Oh - here is something - it supposed to be 80 degrees today. Yeah. 4 days ago it snowed 4 inches, now its 80. WTF?

I need to go do some work, so later dudes...

Um...its April, right?

We woke up to almost 4 inches of snow this morning. SNOW. It was close to 70 degrees all last week, now its fricking snowing. My town is the only one that seemed to get dumped on because we have our own private convergence zone here, but still. I want to bbq and shit - not snowshoe.




























I ended up only having 2 (albeit LARGE) margaritas on Friday, but I woke up at 3am needing Alleve for my pounding head. I'm getting old - just can't party like I used to. Saturday we rented "Turistas" - which was OK, nothing special. They only had ONE scene where some girl was getting her organs stolen, so I felt jipped. Then, I went and bought a firewire cable so that I could download my camcorder videos to my computer. That pretty much took up the rest of the weekend. Not a whole lot of excitement, but like I said, I'm getting old. It just doesn't take much to entertain me anymore.
