Random Tuesday Thoughts: Pity Party

 

If you don’t know the drill by now, go see Keely…  she is less grumpy than me today.

* I have to wait a month and a half for my nose to get fixed…  This wouldn’t be so bad, if it didn’t fall right in the middle of golf season!  I mean, seriously, this has been going on 8 months and now, they decide they are going to fix it, DURING GOLF SEASON!

* First we had a 24 hour stomach bug running through the house and now we have a head cold trying to take over.  Tea, chicken noodle soup and juice for us!

* I ordered some granola bars from a private seller on Amazon.  They shipped it secure mail through FedEx and wouldn’t let anyone sign for it, but me.  “For security reason.”  So, they got sent back to the seller.  Apparently, Homeland Security and FedEx are really concerned about what will happen if the granola bars end up in the wrong hands. 

*Quote of the week once again goes to the Tyrant:  “What is wrong with you guys?  YOU CAN’T SHIP DONUTS!!”

Wondering on Wednesday: Is it acceptable to be self-centered?

Lindsey Lohan is suing E-Trade.  Why do you ask?  Because they called a baby named Lindsey a “milkaholic”.  She filed suit because obviously, they were talking about her…

I am so glad that a woman like her is a celebrity.  I mean, how else would our young girls learn that the world does in fact revolve around them.  Where would we be without these shining examples of womanhood?

(As a side note, I can’t wait to tell my girls about this one.  They are usually spot on with their observations and their insights can be highly entertaining.)

Wondering on Wednesday: What is this world coming to?

As you probably already know, we got a Wii for X-mas from my parents.  I was really excited yesterday when Amazon was having an all Wii Gold Box Sale.  Then, I saw this game as the feature…

Yes, the game is exactly what you think it is.   It is a game about walking.  Because no one wants to walk around outside, in nature!  You can now walk in the comfort of your own home!

When did this happen?  How will our children ever survive on a camping trip? What is this world coming to?

Wonder on Wednesday: Is there a future for your girls?

Every single time there is a victory for woman’s equality, I hear about something like this.  Yes, it does in fact state the Miley Cyrus’ little sister is launching a lingerie line for little girls.  My jaw has hit the floor and I am so disgusted as a woman and a mom (err… WickedStepMom).

Good luck to all the organizations like V-day.  As long as females are encouraged to not have any self-worth, there will be violence against females.  It is hard enough to instill self-worth into today’s girls without something like this.

What do you think?  Is there hope for our girls to have a future without having to sell their bodies?

Get a job!

There are quite a  very few things in this world that will really get under my skin.  I realize that not all of these things are important.  I also know that some of the things (leaving dirty socks all over the house, for example) do not bother other people at all.  But what really gets to me?  What really makes me mad?

People that feel entitled to things that others have to work for makes me absolutely crazy.  I do not feel things should be handed to people.  I truly believe that in order to really appreciate something, you have to work for it.  Those people that don’t want to work but expect the same things as everyone else make me want to scream.  This is something that is frustrating for me across the board.  Whether it is a new skill that someone is trying to master, a difficult task that someone is trying to complete or a goal that is being reached for. 

What makes this whole deal even worse and the reason why I am stressed.  There really are people that have never had to work a day in their lives for anything.  To make matters worse, some of these people have enough financial resources to never have to put an effort into anything at all.  These people who do not even know the value of hard work get to have all the benefits.  I really don’t like these people.

Why are you yelling at me?!?

Bear and I have been working on the Wii Fit almost daily.  If we skip one day, we are back on it the next.  I am very proud of the way we have both been able to commit to it.  The Mother Hen has not been as dedicated.  About six months ago, she was after us for a gym membership.  She has the best of intentions but doesn’t always follow through.

Now, the Wii Fit has been harassing me every day asking where The Mother Hen has been.  It is not bugging Bear about her, but its picking on me.  Bear thinks the Wii Fit hates me.  I tend to agree with him.  I think the thing has it in for me.  Seriously, it always has something bad to say.  “Your leg is a little shaky!” “You’re swaying a little!” “You need to pay more attention to [The Mother Hen]!”  This thing is out of control!  It needs to start yelling at Bear or me and Wii Fit are going to have some words!

Random Tuesday Thoughts: I survived the holidays!

It’s Tuesday, its not a holiday.  I feel safe again…  Go see Keely for some non-holiday cheer!

* According to the Wii Fit, my BeautifulPeople.com account should be cancelled.  Its sites like this that make sure that our teens have no self-esteem.  I hope they are proud of themselves and their plastic surgeons.

* There have been so many holiday parties and craziness going on.  I am so glad that they are over.  I just can’t believe that I actually survived.  Between food allergies and everything else, I normally don’t eat a whole lot during the holiday season.  I usually survive on snack packs of granola that I made for myself before we leave the house.  This year, everyone was really kind and made sure that the food was safe for me to eat.  I ate more holiday food than I have since I was a kid.  I am so sick of it now, I hope I don’t see holiday food for several years!

* We just got Netflix back.  So we will be watching disk 2 of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends this weekend.  I am looking forward to hunkering down with the kids to watch some silly cartoons.

Wii Fit, I hate you

So, as I mentioned before, Bear and I have been using the Wii Fit.  The Mother Hen was suppose to be joining us, but that is a rant for another day.  Lets just say that laughing at others while they are trying to exercise does not burn calories…

Anyway, the other day, I was PMSing and feeling all fat and bloated.  I got on the Wii Fit and it measured my weight.  I had gained a pound.  So, it wanted me to give a reason.  Since none of the choices said “PMS”, I selected “I don’t know” because I hadn’t been over eating or doing anything crazy like that.  The following day, I got on the Wii Fit and I still had the additional pound.  It said “Yesterday, you selected ‘I don’t know’ as the reason for gaining weight.  Let’s try not to use that excuse… er.. reason frequently.”  I started yelling at it, “Well it’s not like I could select PMS, you a-hole!  I am bloated and feeling fat already, you jerk!  I don’t need you to rub it in my face!”

Perhaps. the Wii fit is not the best plan when you are PMSing.

Random Tuesday Thoughts: Gnome Eggs

Go see Keely, who has managed to write an entire RTT post without the mention of gnomes. Because she is creative and funny, unlike me. Don’t worry, I will still love you if you think she is funnier than I am.

* My parents got the Tribe a Wii and the Wii Fit.  The Wii fit has been used by Bear, The Mother Hen and I quite frequently lately.  My calves absolutely hate me for it.  This game has only reinforced what I already know about my self.  I have no rthyme and no balance.  Watching me try to work out to the Basic Step routine has provided hours of entertainment for everyone in our house. 

* A spider was hanging out in my shower the other morning.  Now, I am not normally an “EWW BUG!!” kind of girl.  But this spider really stared to bug me.  I can only assume it was because the spider was able to see me naked and I know that I am horribly out shape (see calve comment above…)   I felt like that spider was judging me.  I wanted to scream, “Hey pal, I know we can’t all be 3 ounces!”  That makes me a little crazy, doesn’t it…

* The Gnome that has taken up residence in my sinuses, has decided to lay eggs.  All of my sinuses are effected now, instead of just the right side.  I look like I have two black eyes.  It will be another month before I can see a sinus specialist, so you are stuck listening to me whine until then…  Hopefully, there will be no surgery involved.

* The day after Christmas, I was looking at our tree.  It is a white tree decorated with blue ornaments.  It has stars, stockings, icicles and various globes that came from a multipack.  We have had these for about three years.  But the day after Christmas, I noticed for the first time that the stars are all Stars of David.  Now, I am wondering if I should send my Stars to the Keeper Family for their tree.

Random Tuesday Thoughts: Yes, the Gnome is still in my sinuses

 


I think I need to seriously consider hiring a gnome exterminator. Maybe Keely will know of a good one. I mean, she does fight those mice so well. 

 

* I get so tired of people who don’t really give a damn asking me if I am feeling okay.  “My eyes are swollen, my nose is backed up and I am coughing up a lung..  I feel great, thanks for asking!”  I know you are only asking because you don’t want to catch anything, but I assure you, this nose issue is all mine…  And no you will not catch it by talking to me from across the room, jerk! 

* I should tell you all that I have been informed by the proper authorities that this holiday season is not about peace on Earth and happiness.  It is about Nintendo DSs.  And those words have been uttered so many times in my house, I want to threaten that if they don’t play with their DSs 24×7 that they will be grounded from everything else.  Including dinner…  Not that I won’t feed them, just they will have to eat at a different table so that I don’t have to hear Nintendo DS anymore!  (Sorry, got a little ranty there.) 

* The Mother Hen and I can bond just about anytime over anything.  Yesterday, I found out that if you bond with your teenaged daughter by making disparaging comments about stars of reality TV, you are going directly to Hades.  ::sigh::  At least we will be in good company. 

* Did you know it is possible to get a kid to disolve into tears by playing Christmas Carols on the radio?…  Neither did I.

* I was listening to the radio the other day, they were listing off some major events of the last few decades…  Here is what they listed.

– Celebriy deaths

– Tiger Woods’ scandal

– Octomom

And I thought to myself…  REALLY?  What about 9-11, the first non-white president, wars, same-sex marriage, the list goes on…  But the most important things revolve around celebrities.  What is our world coming to?
