25 random things about me

March 31, 2009

This will be a fairly lighthearted interesting blog.  I wasn’t tagged when my friend did this on her blog so I don’t HAVE to do this but I thought it would be fun for not only for me but for you as well.  Come back here!!  Don’t make me tie you down to your chairs!!  Ok good.  Upon writing a lot of it I realized a lot of these are several facts about me into one paragraph but it’s still appropriate in this format I think.

1.  After the show Sober House I have had a fairly unhealthy fascination with Andy Dick.  I regularly visit his blog (on andydick.com) and I watched his live stream of his act 3 times 3 days in a row a couple of weeks ago.  When people bad mouth him I get very irritated and want to come to his defense but I keep my mouth shut (me? mouth? shut? NEVER!) because it’s not worth anybody’s time.  I feel Andy and I would be instant good friends and I relate to him in a lot of ways.  I think we tell stories in similar ways, he has a lot of similar stories to tell, and if I wrote songs I think I would write songs in a similar way.  I feel a very strong connection to him since that show.

2.  I don’t enjoy drinking, cigarettes turn me off and the thought of doing drugs turns me off too.  I feel everybody has the right to do drugs though as long as they are home (so they don’t have to make the decision to drive while intoxicated or not) and they are not around me!!  I feel drugs should be legalized and taxed the hell out of.  Then that money should come full circle into decent rehab clinics, halfway houses and various things.  My general philosophy is if you are making the choice for yourself if you want to do something or not it should be legal.

3.  Most of the people I have met that are the most interesting have only been for a brief time.  Either in a job interview process, a vacation, I met them in an interesting experience, a substitute teacher I have only had once or twice etc.  I think if I kept in touch it might of ruined it.

4.  I love cheesy bubble gum pop and general cheesy pop songs from the 80’s and 90’s.  I have several songs on my external hard drive (1,200 and counting) and a significant amount of them are songs I get a nostalgic feeling every time I hear them.  This is an interesting fact because current music like this I do not like.  You can keep Britney Spears, I will play the Killers, System of a Down, the White Stripes, Pink, etc. thank you.

5.  I have a fascination with Miley Cyrus.  I admire her for being able to have enough self discipline to do all of the high school stuff as well as learn dancing for concerts, to go on tour, to do publicity etc. She has seen things I probably will never see (as the other way around of course) and has had and will have opportunities I will never have.  I don’t like it when people bash her, I think she is a decent role model.  She is just human after all.  I have a few songs downloaded of hers and listen to them but I wouldn’t call myself a fan per say.  Just someone that admires from a distance.  I am subbed to her youtube account and I just think it’s fascinating that this girl jokes like an average 16 year old on youtube and she has so many millions of dollars and has done so much.

6.  This is going to sound really really REALLY naive but… I feel Michael Jackson didn’t do it.  I think those people were just trying to get money.  I feel really bad for him.  That was the beginning of the end.

7.  The only fish I will eat is tuna.  When I was a kid I would go with my Grandparents from my Dad’s side of the family fishing when I visited them for a week or two in the summer.  For years when they caught a fish or two my Grandma would cook them up and serve them that night or the night after and I would fake that I liked it.  One night when I was 11, staring at a piece of fish she put on my plate I confessed.  My sister told me to shut up and eat it but I refused.  My Grandma just said ok your not eating any meat then is that ok and I couldn’t of been happier.  She died when I was 12 so I could of choked a few more down for my Grandma.  I need to write about my only memories from my Dad’s side of my family from visiting my Grandparents in this blog someday.  It’s a very interesting topic indeed.

8.  If I cook something for other people to eat as well as myself I always eat the part that is imperfect and give them the good part.  I am disappointed with myself when someone makes a comment that something is slightly off with my cooking or baking.  Even if they are really nice about it.  Even with Harry I am like that.

9.  Most of the text message conversations Harry and I have are him saying, “I love you babe very much” and me responding, “I love you too babe very much” also, “Muah with Love” and me saying, “Muah with love back” if that sounds so random you can’t understand why (which I don’t say to blame you) we do that so often it’s just to ping each other and to say hi throughout the night.  He calls me little babe as a pet name and I call him babe.  If someone else called him babe or called me babe I would be so upset.  Not really but you should never ever do it.  That is just something him and I do but I feel vulnerable telling you this.  In a good warm in fuzzy way.

10.  I can’t decide if I am bad at procrastinating or good at it.  I sometimes put off something the entire night that only takes 20 minutes to do.  Right after I am done writing this blog I am going to repost my hunchback drawing on Etsy.  I have been putting that off all week.  The interwebz just takes up a lot of time is all!!  Now that I think about it procrastination takes up a lot of time lol.

11.  I have been told by 3-4 people I look a lot like John Travolta in this last year and nobody has said it previously.  Like I could be his long lost daughter.  One person started the comment with “No offense but…” why would I take offense?  I love that I look similar to Travolta Baby!!  My cousin Bill calls him that.  Bill is one of the funniest people I know so I try to steal his isms any chance I get.

12. Every time a mac user starts raving about how great Apple is and how Apple can do no wrong I get very irritated.  Just because I use a pc it doesn’t mean I suck HP’s (I am using an HP laptop) and Microsoft’s proverbial cock every chance I get.  It’s annoying how defensive they get before anybody even makes it so they have to be.  I don’t buy products because I agree with the company politically and their image.  I just like the thing.  Ok?  And Bill Gates still owns a significant amount of Apple stock anyway.  Oh snap!

13. One time I got hit by a truck on my bike when I was about 15.  All afternoon I was on my bike and I stopped at the end of the street several times and stopped for the cars to wave me by several times.  This one guy I thought well he sees me and while I was going ahead he slammed right into me.  The nice guy kept on saying are you alright?  Do you need to go to the hospital?  I said no it’s ok I’m fine he put my bike in the bed of his truck and I asked if he could take me to where I needed to go.  He happily agreed and took me there.  I never saw him again.  I really was fine but I never rode that bike again, the front wheel was bent out of shape and and made the bike unrideable.  I never told my Grandparents what happened.  The bike was a bitchin’ black husky boys bike.  With Simpsons bike stickers all over it.

14.  I think one of the major things that I feel disappointed I wasn’t born with was the gift to sing well.  It was empathized when the show American Idol started.

15.  I adore Rosie O’ Donnell.  No wait come back!!  I admire her opinionated side, her parenting side, her spouse side, her goofy side, etc.  I feel I really relate to her on so many levels.  I sometimes think of myself as a younger version of her.  Don’t laugh!  I mean I kind of look like her, I’m a lesbian, I am artistic, I am funny, I want to adopt children when I am older, I’m misunderstood, our politics are the same, etc.  I would be in heaven if I spent the day with her at her house in her art studio.  And then later Kelli would make us strip steak, baked potatoes and salad for dinner.  I have it all planned out in my head.

16.  Many times I google something just to confirm I am right.  I hate being wrong even if it’s slightly wrong.  I hate being corrected, it makes me uncomfortable like that person is judging me.  I just googled to confirm Kelli’s name is spelled Kelli instead of Kelly for example.

17. If someone just said something wrong around me it bothers me.  I feel I have to correct them.  Hypocrisy yes a little but I can’t help it.

18. I don’t have any if only very little sentimental value towards the two movies Princess Bride and the Neverending Story.  Those two are the most popular it seems that I just don’t get excited to hear other people’s stories about.  I am just meh about them.  I have tons of other movies we can gush and talk about though!

19. I used to use a cubby space type of shelving unit growing up until I moved out of the house.  They were pale grey plastic tubs with matching plastic legs that kept it together.  They were about 9 of them and my clothes went in them.  Well one night while I was about to go to sleep I don’t remember how old I was I think I was a Freshman in high school I was sticking my fingers through the grid like holes.  I got my finger STUCK in the hole and couldn’t get it out.  I took out the clothes in it and the other container that was on top and ran into where my Grandma was sitting and showed her.  She said can you sleep with it on and we can go to the er in the morning?  A few minutes later I got it off myself.  Not my brightest moment.

20.  Rule of thumb.  If someone says something insulting to me, somebody I care about, or the point they are making is against what I believe in, but it’s funny I am ok with it.   I have left comments on my youtube videos up that are an insult to me just because it was funny and made me laugh.  I usually delete every negative comment on my videos.  I do argue on others videos though.  I have a strange satisfaction when it’s not when I win exactly it’s just they give up arguing with me lol.

Almost there!!!

21. I am subscribed to 149 people on youtube.  I spend at least an hour and a half to two hours a day watching new videos from people I am subscribed to.  If we couldn’t afford cable anymore and had to turn it off I wouldn’t miss it much because I watch youtube more it seems.  And I can find the shows I really like on the internet and download movies etc.

22. I feel I have a very unique way of looking at the world.  So unique it’s hard to describe and I could either not explain it in order for someone else to understand or if they did understand they would think I am nutty.  I don’t have a huge ego at all I just feel I observe the world differently then most people.  I think it’s one of my gifts.

23. Another person I adore is the Amazing Atheist on youtube.  I agree with 99.9% of what he says, I have weird perversions like he does, I enjoy his sense of humor and sarcasm because I act that way too, oh it’s so many reasons.  He is brilliant yet lazy like I am.  If I were strait I would have such a raging crush on him.  I have been known to say groupie esque like things about him before.  I know this doesn’t sound right to you but it sounds right to me and that is all that matters IMO.  I tell myself all the time if I were strait he would be the one I would want to marry and there is nothing wrong with that.  I just saw a picture of his supposed girlfriend on his myspace.  I am way prettier.

24.  I won’t tell you who but I unsubscribed to somebody on youtube that I am still friends with.  I won’t tell you why because then I think you could put the pieces together in your head but it was because it was for several annoying reasons.  I occasionally look up their channel and watch a video or two but I cannot stand watching their videos on a regular basis.

25. You know the saying there is no stupid question just the question that isn’t asked?  I think that is a load of crap you tell a kid so they won’t feel stupid.  I LOATHE it when people ask a question they either could a. think about their question for a minute or two and figure out the answer themselves or b. wait a little while to get their answer instead of interrupting someone to ask their question.  There are others but that is the main two.  One of the reasons why I love the internet is I can avoid asking questions and I can just google up the answer myself.

I hope this was an insightful blog that told you a little bit more about me.  More about what you knew already about me, some things you had no clue about, and just an overall insightful and entertaining blog.

My 5 pet peeves for the moment

December 5, 2008

I posted this comment on a friend’s blog and I thought you people would find it amusing.  One of their pet peeves was people that interrupted while talking to them.

This is that person’s Myspace where their blog is I know not everybody is Myspace friendly.

Like you, I could go on about what I hate about people in general.  I loathe it when people interrupt too!! Especially when you start talking and a thought pops in their head while you are just starting your story and they are so not listening to the rest they are just waiting until you are done talking.  I am 26 but unfortunately I think sometimes I sound like a bitter old woman.  One thing on my list is bitter old women LOL but yeah.  I feel I am a smart person so every time someone does something stupid around me it makes me really upset and I want to punish them for their stupidity.  I try not to let it get to me because I don’t want to shave years off my life because of it but it’s so hard sometimes to tolerate.

My number one is just because it’s fresh on my mind.  I just unsubscribed someone last night on youtube after about a year of watching their videos for one reason.  They kept on doing video responses to a lot of people.  They are unemployed so apparently they have so much time on their hands they can go and make 5 min or even 10 min video responses to people they don’t even know just to get a personal comment on their video from them.  I feel that is so annoying of a thought because I feel that makes them look like such an attention whore.  Also that makes them force someone they don’t know to have to kill 10 minutes of their time verse less then a minute to read a text comment.  Augh! lol!

The second one I could probably over generalize but I hate it when people don’t wait until you are on the sidewalk while crossing the street to start driving again.  That just shows how selfish they are.  I don’t think I need to explain that in more detail I think you know exactly what I am talking about.  All those types of things people do show how selfish that they are is what makes people so bitter towards everybody else.

My third kind of goes with the first one.  I hate I mean I REALLY hate it when people ask stupid questions.  You know the saying you can never ask a stupid question?  I don’t believe it.  I have heard so many stupid questions.  Especially when someone can spend a minute or two googling the information which I do all the time to avoid wasting people’s time.  Some questions if you think about your question with a little common sense you can find an answer without any outside information.  It seems like some people just don’t think before they speak.  It just comes out.  And it makes them look so stupid and worthless.  Told you I sound like a bitter old lady lol!!

Fourth is when old people give out medical information that is either an old wives tale or out of date and they insist it’s true and if you don’t believe them and don’t do what they say they get offended.  Like wtf?  If any old person gives me medical information anymore I take it with a grain of salt.  They just don’t update their information and refuse to listen to anyone correcting them.  I look up any information that anyone tells me to confirm it anyway.  You could say I am a severe skeptic.  I just have been conned a lot is all.

Here is another internet one.  People that write comments that the spelling is terrible.  I mean why waste your time if the comment is going to make you sound like a complete moron?  It doesn’t matter the point you are trying to make if every single word is misspelled and the only words that are spelled correctly are the net speak words.  They should download firefox and use the spell check that comes with it.  Even though from my experience (I am on it right now I use it for my primary browser) it isn’t the best and I actually type in words to google sometimes just so it will do it’s “do you really mean” thing to my misspelled word.

To the people reading this blog post.  What is 5 of your top pet peeves of the moment?

Christmas Survey (I don’t usually post these here but…)

November 14, 2008

These usually stay in Myspace but I thought you guys would find it amusing.  Doing this survey got me in the Christmas spirit just a teeny tiny bit more.  I have been resisting lately.  I am trying to hang onto my Halloween aftermath spirit a little longer.

1. Egg Nog or Hot Choco​late?
It depends on my mood.  Sometimes Hot Chocolate and sometimes Egg Nog

2.Does Santa​ wrap prese​nts or just sit them under​ the tree?
I have always liked how they did it in the movies where the bike is assembled and in front of the tree with a big bow on it…. but I always wrap presents even if the kid gets suspicious to why the wrapping paper matches his/her other presents!

3.Color​ed light​s on tree/​house​ or white​?
White.  Colored lights to me are tacky.  Except if they have some kind of pattern like white blue or green red white.  I loathe flashing lights!!  Like wtf is wrong with people?  Except that one video on youtube where the song is synced up with the lights that is epic.  You should look that up.

4.Do you hang mistl​etoe?
No I have only seen that in the movies, I want one of those mistletoe hats!

5.When do you put your decor​ation​s up?
I don’t have any.  But after Thanksgiving is a must.

6.What is your favor​ite holid​ay dish (​exclu​ding desse​rt)​?
Too hard to decide.  I think fresh out of the oven biscuits w/ butter inside.  Or brussel sprouts w/ water chestnut sauce.  Or turkey with a side of extremely moist stuffing….

7.Favor​ite holid​ay memor​y as a child​:
The gut wrenching anticipation of opening presents.  That can make a child insane!  Or just the day afterwards when you could play with your toys, watch your new movies or listen to your new cds while eating leftover candy and christmas cookies

8.When and how did you learn​ the truth​ about​ Santa​?
I don’t remember how old I was but I think I was in the 3rd grade.  I woke up at about 10am and I usually just laid in bed enjoying slowing waking up but the thought of a stocking waiting for me to go through popped in my head.  I ran into the living room and all of the stockings were empty.

I was confused to what did I ever do to deserve that?  I walked into the family room and told my Grandma that the stockings were empty.  She had this “oh shit” look on her face and told me to stay in the family room and don’t go onto the living room until she said it was ok.  I wondered what she was up to after a few minutes and then when I walked into the living room again I saw my Grandma stuffing the stockings with things from a brown paper bag.  I was dumbfounded.  I felt scammed like I was the last one to find out.  I quickly got over it though.  She always put an orange in our stockings.  Freakin’ Grandma.

9.Do you open a gift on Chris​tmas Eve?
What we did is we opened all of our presents after dinner was ate and the dishes were done that were from our Grandparents (and from my cousin when he lived with us for about 4 years) and then the day after that we opened our relatives presents when they showed up that was before dinner.  The problem was, all of the things we wanted came from our grandparents so the presents we opened from our relatives were what they thought we would like and not really what we asked for.

Sometimes my Grandma would tell them a title of a cd we wanted or something easy like that but not always.  We were told to be polite and she made sure we said thank you.

I really wanted to say “yeah thanks a lot for this stuff you spent money on!” in a sarcastic way.  I was rude a few years ago now that relative doesn’t buy me presents anymore.  I don’t care, I mean she gave me toothpaste and cheap shampoo for a present!  Like wtf?  And then she spent like 25 bucks a piece on my sisters.  At least.  She said I am hard to shop for I don’t think I am.  Just give me a gift card woman I’ll do the rest.

10.How do you decor​ate your Chris​tmas Tree?
I love the random promotional ornaments that were made in the 80’s and 90’s by restaurants tieing in with a movie or a saturday morning cartoon that I want to collect a lot of.  Also the vintagey looking stuff like the old fashioned santa and holly hobby stuff.  That’s an odd combo but I have never labeled myself as normal.  Ahem.

11.Snow!​ Love it or Dread​ it?
I used to love snow as a kid.  The worse it got the more school we missed and it was so much fun.  I remember one time I made a snowman and then for lunch enjoyed a chef boyardee type pasta in a can shaped as ninja turtles.  Another time we made a track around a tree in our backyard it it froze a little overnight (which we wanted to have happen) and my sisters and I took turns pushing ourselves around the tree on a sleigh type thing we scrounged up.  Now I don’t like it as much.  It’s a pain in the ass to walk in and it’s a pain in the ass to drive anywhere in.  It sure is pretty though 🙂

12.Do you know how to ice skate​?
No.  I went to a rink once and I was too chicken shit to learn how to be a good skater.  Also the same with going to the roller rink.

13.Do you remember​ your favor​ite gift?
When I was 10 I got a swiss army knife.  A basic one.  I wanted one because I thought every boy in america had one and so therefore I needed one to blend in.  That is when I became a tomboy around that time.  My Granddad called several stores asking for one.  I thought it was so cool and thanked him but quickly didn’t pay much attention to it.

I mean it wasn’t going to help me in some really gnarly adventures or anything.  To my knowledge it’s still hanging on my Grandparents key rack in their bathroom.  Long live the swiss army knife 🙂  I always had that one present I really looked forward to.  I think the coolest one really was a NES my aunt gave my sisters and I and it was a total surprise.  My Grandma told us not to tell her son Bill (he was in his mid 30’s then) that our aunt is the one that gave us the NES because she thought he would get upset.  I told him about 4 years ago.  He was surprised but not that upset.

14.What is your favor​ite Holid​ay Desse​rt?
The classic Pumpkin pie w/ a layer of whipped cream on top.  It was included in the meal but the fruit salads and jello salads always felt like a form of dessert and were always slightly different every year.

15Wha​t is your favor​ite holid​ay tradi​tion?
Watching frosty the snowman, rudolph the rednosed reindeer, garfield’s christmas, charlie brown’s christmas and the simpsons christmas (the first one!) every year.  I think that is the only thing I have done consistently.  I love watching people open presents too especially children!  Also the kindness really comes out in people during the holiday season.  AND the advent calendar at x-entertainment.com!!!

16.What tops your tree?
What tops my Grandma’s tree every year is an older angel that is very pretty.  She plugs it in and it lights up.  I haven’t gotten a topper on mine yet.  I think I will get an angel too.

17.Which​ do you prefe​r givin​g or Recei​ving gifts​?
As an adult now I just want money.  Quite honestly.  But I love giving and I always feel awful when I can’t afford presents for the people I love.  I am not going to my Grandparents this year for Christmas (family drama, don’t even get me started!!) but I am fedexing some presents still for the family members I still love.  I might not be there, but I still want the ones that I still love in my family to get a 25 dollar gift card a piece.  That’s just how I roll.

18.What is your favor​ite Chris​tmas Song?
I couldn’t pick one really.  I love the cheesy ones from holiday specials, the timeless ones that everybody loves (Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?!??!?) and the dated ones I know from holiday specials from my childhood.  X-entertainment.com has an excellent Christmas (and Halloween) playlist that if anyone out there is looking for one to put on shuffle on their computer they should definitely it check out.  It’s updated every year.  Long live the X-E jukeboxes!!!

19.Candy​ Canes​!​ Yuck or Yum?
I love em’.  The traditional ones, and also the ones that hershey puts out that are really good.  They are chocolate and peppermint flavored!

20.What do you want for Chris​tmas?
To have a great time with my best friend Harry.  And a wii fit!  And contact lenses!

Feel free to steal this survey and replace my answers.

The stuff that dreams are made of…

November 5, 2008

Hi there.  My friend Heady posted this video on a bulletin on myspace.  The more into the video it plays the funnier it gets IMO.  I thought my first blog about the aftermath of the election was going to be different but this is good too.  I shared the celebration online sitting right here at my computer with Chris Crocker on stickam.  He is more fascinating to watch on stickam then you might think.  Just sharing his presence is all.

If you like this video or just want to kill some time, this young man is in a contest for the best Barack Obama impression.  You have to register an account with the site but I can promise you it’s quick and painless.

Here’s the link

My favorite part of Obama’s speech is when he said that when things aren’t going right he’ll tell us.  It’s like he isn’t just our president he’s our good friend that calls us once a week to catch up.  I thought it was humbling and relieving.  We’ll see how good he does but still it’s a relief to us open minded smart folk.  I want to do a video a compliation of music and video if you will with some of the video I recorded last night in Chris Crocker’s chat room.  I think it’s just to preserve the moment really for me and not really for anyone else.  Well the other people that were in the chat of course.  I wish people enjoyed staring at me in a chat room while I was obviously ignoring them like Chris does.  Until next time…

Random pictures I have found on the internet: Election edition

October 26, 2008

I don’t like bringing politics into this blog that often.  Because I think the people that come to this blog are looking for something to distract them from politics and real life subjects.  If you don’t want to read about anything political skip this one.  I feel this is like a screen shot for this place in time politically.  I feel this is the appropriate venue to get this out of my system.  Especially if you are pro McCain/Palin you will be offended because these pictures will be very biased against them.

I don’t get offended that easily so these jokes are very funny to me.  If you are offended at jokes in the pictures but still want to look at something on this blog article, at the end there will be videos and they aren’t off color and as offensive as the pictures.

These will mostly be pictures, I won’t post commentary on most of them.  Click on them to enlarge.

Shall we?

BTW I don’t consider myself a Democrat.  I don’t like how the system lumps people into groups.  I am registered as an Independent.  So I guess that means that I can bash everybody lol!!

LMAO!!!  That is why people shouldn’t make airbrushed shirts.  Ever.  There should be a PSA against them.  Say no to airbrushing kids.

Very offensive yet it makes me hysterically giggle every time I see it.  There are several jokes with this picture.  Same frames, different text.   For people that have so much time on their hands they photoshop something like this up, I salute you.

Freakin’ uncanny.

This one is a bit out of date but I put it up because obviously someone put a lot of effort into this.

Bouncy bouncy.

This is obviously shopped but amusing.  I still haven’t seen W yet I want to.  Most people liked it but this one person said they didn’t get it and the bad impersonation of C. Rice was distracting.  We’ll see.

Creepy, right?

I hate Bill O’Rielly I feel he is a sell out and a coward but I love this picture.  This is like something I would make.

I love this one 🙂

Even though on 20 20 last week they were talking about how we put politicians up on a pedestal and we are always disappointed by that.  They can never live up to the expectations we hold them to.  Makes you think.

Ok that’s it.  No more pictures.  Now onto the videos.  But I bet some of these you have already seen.

I adore these videos.  Howie and Julie from Venga Productions are so cool.  If I tried my whole life to be as cool as them at the end of my life I think I would be about an eighth of my way there.  This is the first video I watch of theirs when I go through them.  I have been watching these videos 2 times a day for the last 6 days or so.  When I like something I REALLY like something and can’t stop myself from rewatching it a million times until I am completely tired of it and then I move onto something else.  The first couple times watching this video I giggled a little to myself during the, “I’m so fucking scared of you” part.  I also enjoy how they mention that women won’t vote for her just because she has tits.  I like the clever wording there.

This is the next video I watch.  The Axis of Evil line makes me smirk every time.

Unfortunately this is the last one.

I am hoping they make at least one more before the election.  I enjoy their style.  I love in the last video watching Julie dance.  She is so hot dancing, you work it Julie!

This is the link for Amy Poehler’s Sarah Palin Rap

This one wouldn’t embed it’s from NBC’s site.  If anyone thinks that Sarah was actually going to do it but backed out at the last minute is a moron.  Sorry but it’s true.  Part of the sketch was her saying that she loved practicing the rap, but she didn’t want to perform it publicly after all.  I actually am going to admit this but I like Sarah just a tiny bit more for being such a good sport about it the rap and the whole bit.  Tiny bit.  She still has the Axis of Evil between her thighs…

Remember this?  I knew the whole dumb blond thing was just to get money.

Here is the link, I couldn’t get it to embed

This is classic.  He didn’t do this for any other campaign but this one.  This shows how important it is for people to make this one the right vote.  For Obama 😀
If this is the first time your watching this and you get inspired to register to vote because of it.  Sorry your so screwed.  The time has came and went to register, it’s still a funny video though.
This video is really funny.  There is still time for this one to inspire you to change the world.  Please, convince your Grandparents to make their vote count for the better 🙂

You have to admire how time consuming this must of been.  Cheesy but it should at least get one view.

It reminds me of this song.  I admire the work that this took too.  This video has more meaning because I feel it’s the Bush Administration’s theme song.  Notice he is wearing the same outfit the entire video.  Imagine your great grandkids watching this on youtube and then asking you what Bush did that was so bad.  That one question is a mouthful I think.

I have rewatched this video several times.  This is a unique parody I think because it’s a serious parody.  This is him expressing his opinion of Bush and this last 8 years (when this video was made it was about 7 years)

I have rewatched this video several times as well.  This is a unique parody I think because it’s a serious parody.  This is expression his opinion of Bush and this last 8 years (when this video was made it was about 7 years)

We are almost done 🙂

It might sound like things bother me easily but this video bothers me every time I watch it.  Especially the, “I like them because it’s an election year and they are taxpayers” part.  Bush is the boogeyman to me.  He is who creeps around in the shadows at night that you warn your children about.

Last video!  I swear it is!

I love this video.  It’s catchy and it has a positive message.  She makes me think even MORE that gay people are great and if the world were without them the world would be so empty.

That’s it!  We’re done!  For everyone that has registered to vote, congrats!  For everyone that has registered and voted already, I hope you made the right choice!  I have already voted and I feel great about it.  I feel this is one of the most important votes of my lifetime.  It inspired me to vote for the first time because I know how important it is.

Random pictures that I have taken or found

October 9, 2008

The title basically explains what this blog article is about.  These are some funny pictures I have taken over the course of the last 6 months or pictures I have found on the internet.  These aren’t all of them but they are just a few.  I wouldn’t want this blog article to be read at my funeral but it’s a good one nonetheless.  Let’s begin…

This article will show at least one picture for everybody I think.  This also shows how bent my sense of humor is.  I have the kind of sense of humor that is offensive to a lot of people.  But I feel you only live once so why not laugh your problems away.  People become alcoholics because they get overwhelmed by life’s problems well I just have a good laugh and then move on.

I had to do this picture first because I took it to use on my blog and I want to use it just so I can say I did.  To whom exactly?  No idea.

Where are they out?  And why if it’s someplace else, did they have to specifically put this tiny sign over the raspberry tea dispenser?  I love their artistic skills on the frowny face, nice touch.  Nice touch indeed.  As opposed to a bad touch that you hear about in special episodes of older Saturday morning cartoon specials.  I saw the episode online of Different Strokes about child molestation a couple months ago for the first time and it still gives me the willis just thinking about it.

This one I took Tuesday night at our precious Super Walmart that is up the street.  You can get practically anything done or buy anything there and never go anyplace else.  It’s kind of scary in it’s own way.  But we were waiting forever behind a girl that was no older then 20 that had a kid that was no older then a year old with one on the way and I see this older lady taking her sweet time getting out change from her purse to pay for her groceries.  I had to sneak a picture, and took one as quickly as Harry could say, “Jodi no!” because I am like a martial artist with my cell phone.  Flip open, flip closed.  I hope the lady behind me in line didn’t notice.  I think she was too busy staring at all the different kinds of gum.  I admit, they are hypnotising in their own way.

You can’t really tell from that picture but I am pretty sure the lady was wearing a black fanny pack.  Right above the little counter where you write a check in our lane you see a black strap.  She can tell all of her bingo buddies now that she is an internet celebrity.  I kind of don’t want to and want to not give a shit anymore about my appearance at the same time so much that I can wear very loud flowered pants like that when I am older or even now with dignity.  Very loud and the colors are very bright.  This picture doesn’t do justice.  I saw them from the corner of my eye, just to do a really good look at them and take this picture.  I couldn’t look at them directly for long, I didn’t want to do permanent damage to my precious eyes.  I don’t even know where she would buy those!!  Did she make them?  Is she that dedicated to her flower pants wearing cult?

Moving on… I have a picture for all of the car lovers out there.  Well, I think lover is too strong of a word.

I took this one myself.  I blurred the plate in paint shop pro because I am not cruel enough to post their plate number.  It’s a bit blurry because I rush really quickly while taking pictures of people’s cars because I am terrified of the reaction if they catch me.  I take pictures of bumper stickers sometimes because I am either laughing at them or with.  I was especially nervous to take this one, if they are such a rebel they spent a good amount of money to  make their plate cooked on their car I don’t want any trouble from them.  If you look closely then you can tell it’s not loosely on there and needs to be fixed like a picture frame, no there is an indent in the car frame around the plate that is crooked and the plate is screwed on like a regular plate but not really, well you know what I mean.

Is this a trend in the car business?  If not, how do you go about modifying a car like that?  I would think that it would be an awkward request.  And I wonder how much that would cost.  The joke to me wouldn’t be worth spending that much money to follow through with.  It probably cost a pretty penny.  What people do anymore to stand out and make a statement.

This statement isn’t as subtle, and it’s even more hilarious.  I’m going to warn you now.  Put down any beverages you are drinking and swallow them completely.  Also stop eating anything.  I don’t want to owe anybody a keyboard.  Are you ready?  Alright here it is…

Ok I think this one speaks for itself.  I mean generator, air conditioner, you can figure it out.  This person deserves credit for their craftsmanship.  And hardheaded stubbornness that I respect because I have that too.

It’s a lot easier just to roll down a window when the air conditioner breaks and enjoy the breeze.  It’s a lot quieter too.  I don’t know the back story so I guess I have no room to judge.  Heh.

Enough of the car pictures.  Have I told you lately that I love you?  Well I do 😀

If you want to say I love you in the snarkiest way this is the way to do so.  I love the that it has just the right tip at the bottom of the heart.  So sweet.  So loving.  So snarky.

These next pictures might offend you.  But I guess if you have read this far it won’t bother you too much.

This photo is blurry because the picture is tiny and I wanted to blow it up.  This picture I saw on someone’s default avatar on myspace and I had to have it.  This goes right along with my sense of humor.  Being a lesbian I wouldn’t dare wear a t shirt or have a bumper sticker proudly displaying it because then I would be labeled a man hating lesbian that I so don’t want to be label as.  And why do people have to go around labeling others anyway?  I don’t want to get off on that rant right now but you get my point.  This is funny to me though.  I told my best friend Harry about it and he said he didn’t get it.  I guess if it said I like my women how I like my coffee I would be a hypocrite and not smile as wide about it.  I say about like Canadians.  I started doing that about 3 years ago.  Mystery to me and Harry.  Weird.  Ground up and in the freezer ‘chuckles’

Ok I feel everyone is at least a little racist.  But I feel I am not an out right bigot.  I feel we were all born the same way so we are all equal.  People aren’t better then you because they have more money, they have a more attractive wife, or anything else in this life that you would compare with others.  You should NEVER compare your life to other people’s lives because you will always wind up short and just feel bad about yourself.  You should look at your life and see how grateful you should feel about the things you have, not feel awful because of what you don’t have.  Who cares if you don’t have an expensive rolex watch and a guy on tv does!  A 20 dollar one still works great!  It’s stuff!  Life is about enjoying sunsets and breathing and what not!  Moving on…

I can just see some squeaky voiced teen just slapping those signs everywhere on January 31st at closing time.  When you get all of those signs up you can close up go home the boss says.  See you on Monday he says.

I hope I made you laugh.  And think.  Laugh and think.  Yeah that sounds right.

I just wanted to say if I didn’t take the picture myself or get it elsewhere the pictures in this blog article I stole from ircimages.com which is a great site to turn off your brain and laugh with.  These pictures are ones that people upload to show on the IRC chat room server.  So it’s very random.  If you dig for a while then you can see some really funny and really stupid pictures.  Like Beavis and Butthead stupid.  But I feel that is good for the spirit.  Warning that site shows EVERYTHING which means you will see also full color porn.  Porn you might not even thought of before.  It’s not for the weak stomach.  I am not talking about 2 girls one cup I am talking about furries people.  Those people are sick fucks.  I love them but not in that way.  Also glorious shots of some beautiful women.  Some of the comments people leave are very funny and immature.  I have read some great ones.

Aww heck just one more funny.  Told ya I loved ya 😀

Like I said a few paragraphs above I’m a lesbian.  If you have any street smarts then you could tell from a mile away.  I have very short hair, I dress and walk like a guy.  Especially if their is a chick I have the hots for around.  Can’t explain it it’s subconsious people.  But this video is so funny to me.  I just love how positive her voice is like she can’t believe it.  And when she corrects herself it’s so so funny because it’s like where she is from Gay is a synonym for Blindness.  You all know this but I just wanted to point it out.  Have a great day all and I will try to post another blog with a smaller gap of time between this one and the last one.

Something just happened to me that usually happens to Billy

July 17, 2008

So I HAVE to share.  HAVE to.

BTW if you haven’t been paying attention Billy or Bill or Will is from Veggiemacabre.wordpress.com .  He is known for having over the top embarrassing things happen to him either he brought it on himself or he just was at the wrong place at the wrong time.  His story about why he was a competitor in the Special Olympics is classic, look it up when you have the chance.

But my story just happened a few minutes ago.  I wanted to tell you all when it is still fresh in my mind.  This is one of my own damn fault kind of embarrassing stories which is the worst kind because you can’t blame anyone else for the embarrassment.  At least in the Special Olympics story Billy has he can blame the mother.  Me?  Only myself.

I am just sitting here catching up on my emails, responding back to text messages on my phone, and I get a phone call.  I don’t usually get phone calls from anyone except my best friend Harry and a good friend that calls every Thursday and that is it.  If a lot of calls are made I make them.  Just a few minutes ago I got a wrong number call.  Usually a wrong number call isn’t that long but this one was special.  And not in a good way.

A side note, have you ever had one specific phone number in your life that got a lot of wrong numbers?  I had a land line when I lived in Stanfield that did.  At least once a month or once every two weeks someone would call and say oops sorry wrong number.  We felt like we had the most recycled number the phone company had.  It was funny though.

But just a few minutes ago an older lady called.  I don’t get many of those.  But I swear, you have to believe me that she sounded exactly like my Great Aunt that is my Grandma’s sister.  In the logic in my brain at the time of the call I thought it was her and she accidentally called me on her phone number list instead of Karen.  I know better now reflecting.  I mean why would my Great Aunt have me on her phone number list?

This is about how the conversation went.  Not word for word.  I have to do this by memory.

*Click*

Me: Hello?

Her: Oh I’m sorry, I was trying to call Karen.  This doesn’t sound like Karen.  I must of called the wrong number.

Me:  Oh hi!! (with a big smile on my face, I haven’t talked to my Great Aunt in at least a couple of years)

Her: Oh hello?  Is Karen there?

Me: Don’t you know who this is?

Her: Apparently I don’t.  I was trying to call Karen.  I’m sorry I don’t know who you are.  Who are you and where is Karen?

Me: You know who I am!!

(pause)

Me: I don’t know where Karen is but you called me instead of her by accident.  But (fumbling with my words) I am Jodi.  Mary Ann’s youngest! (Mary Ann is the first name of my Grandma)

Her: I don’t (pause) know you.  I don’t remember you.  I am going to hang up now and try to call Karen.  I don’t know who you are but I need to speak to Karen now.  Goodbye now! (old ladies have an odd politeness to them)

Me: Oh ok bye!! (still excited thinking I just had a very odd conversation with my Great Aunt)

*Click*

About 2 minutes go by and it hits me.  That WAS a wrong number.  I looked at her number on my phone.  The area code is the same as mine.  My Great Aunt lives in Great falls Montana.  This is like a wacky 80’s sitcom where the two coffins get switched at the simultaneous funerals.

What have I done.  What have I done…

Thoughts about bottle returns at Grocery stores

July 14, 2008

Plastic bottle refund at Walmart

Anyone that has seen the Walmart bottle refund “center” I think they call it has seen this picture.  The O that looks like it is cut in half is where you shove the capless bottle into.  It is about face level.  EVERY SINGLE TIME we go to either Safeway or Walmart to refund our bottles or cans we have a problem and need to talk to someone to either have them fix the machine or write us a handwritten reciept for our bottles.  Heaven forbid you buy a new soda, apparently you have to talk to satan himself to program the barcode into the machine so that soda can be refunded through the machine.  Every single time.  And it always stinks like beer and cigarettes.

That wasn’t even the reason why I posted this post.  Do you ever look at something and assume it is something that it isn’t until you really look at it?  That up there is obviously silhouettes of 2 liter plastic bottles.  For at least a year I have glanced at the picture and I have seen a silhouette of a stout man with a top hat on.  I always have to remind myself those are plastic 2 liter bottles.  I hope someone out there in cyberspace except me understands the logic behind it.  If you don’t it’s cool.  In about a week I should be doing a review of the new Jelly Belly freezer ice pops they have out now.  We were on a tight budget food wise this week so I didn’t throw them in the cart.  It looks blog worthy though so stay tuned.

Yet another way to kill time online: Wordle.com aka I think I am getting the hang of this blogging thing

July 3, 2008

I just made this word collage at a site called Wordle.com.  FIrst you type in a ton of random words.  Like this one is words I feel describe me and then it in a Java applet it shoots out the words.  The bigger words are bigger in the program and you can pick from several color schemes and go through a random color generator pushing Ctrl E several times until you find what you like.  If you saw one you liked a couple of clicks ago you can’t go back!  But it is fun for sure and very creative.  This is the only one I saved (I pushed prt sc (the print screen button) and then went into paint shop pro and then pushed Ctrl V like when you copy and paste while firefox was in full screen mode and then I cropped) so far but this program has great potential to incorporate itself into an art project.  And I can see people sending secrets to postsecret.com that is written in this program, printed then glued on a postcard.  They might of already did I don’t remember.

I like how the word creative and the word eyes meshed together.  I can also see the potential of this helping out an author with writer’s block.  Coolness 🙂  Oh well time to make fruit salad.  BTW I am better now I think I am on my way.  All those other times i thought I was but I need to promise myself this time I am not to quit trying to find what I am looking for to make me happy instead of fake distracted happy.  Take care all.

Movies that deliciously drip of sap

June 21, 2008

I have been trying to write this blog article? post? For at least a month now, lets face it. This aint my primary outlet for creation. But this medium has advantages that override youtube sometimes. Sure I could make a 10 minute video or 2 10 minute videos about this subject, but I thought I would attack this subject Big Willy style.

There is sometimes when you are just in the mood to stretch out on your couch, or sit in front of your pc, and sink into a wonderfully sad movie. Face value that looks like aww that would just make you sad oh no even though a tear might trickle down your cheek. No, these are the movies that have well developed characters struggling through a tough life changing battle that makes you laugh and cry and root them on to the wonderful or not so wonderful ending. You root them on through tough times, and when they make it well you can’t help but have a huge grin on your face. Sometimes you think oh yeah of course it’s a happy ending but sometimes you just don’t care that you fell for it because the movie was just that great.

The first sappy movies I always think of are the ones I have seen time and time again from my childhood. Yes the children’s movies that I remember watching and re watching when I was a young squirt that brought me such joy are the first ones I think about when I am trying to decide to pick a sappy movie. Whether it was a holiday tradition of mine, or I just loved the movie the developing characters and the sad moments in the movies always get me everytime. They are just too darn good. Those Directors really know how to pull on our heartstrings sometimes. And sometimes we let them.

The Little Mermaid

Ok ok ok I promise you I won’t go on a huge review about how wonderful the Little Mermaid is. It’s just this is the first Disney movie my Grandma bought us. The first official one in the white shell case with the penis blending into the castle structure on the cover of it. And about a year after that our family went to Denmark to see the statue (among other things of course, it was a 6 week trip) of the Little Mermaid where my Grandma said “See Jodi, that is the REAL Little Mermaid!” and that moment I felt very proud because my family is from Denmark. I came from the happiest country in the world! Cool huh 🙂

Anywho, Disney movies. I stopped really watching the new ones that came out when I was a teenager, but there are several that I love and love to rewatch now. King Triton giving the gift of legs to Ariel, Simba and Nala having a female Lion cub of their own mirroring when he was born, Tod and Copper going their separate ways with Tod finding his place in the forest with Vixie a female fox, Pinocchio becoming a real boy, the Beast (which I don’t think we ever found out his real name) becoming human because of Belle whispering I love you, Quasimodo being accepted by the towns people, and the list goes on and on. Those Disney people sure know how to write a great coming of age story. I don’t know anymore because I think the last Disney movie I have watched is Monsters Inc. but I have watched several of them. I am proud to say I teared up the first 3 times or so when I watched Toy Story 2 during “Jessie’s Song” which I very rarely do. I am proud because I watched the Pixar story on Starz and Tom Hanks admitted to crying during that song too. It just gets me thinking about the times people have moved on from relationships with me and how that hurt because I still wanted to be friends with them. That is one of the most emotionally painful things to experience.

Ok, I know what your thinking. Your thinking no not E.T. anything but that! But let me just say my piece and we can move on. For some reason the tv Networks thought E.T. is a great movie for the Holiday season and they either play it on Thanksgiving weekend or Christmas eve or Christmas. Well those fuckers have implanted into our brains that this is a great movie to watch during the Holidays and so when that time of the year comes around we get a craving for this video. Fuckers! But other then that fact I love this movie. Even if Drew Barrymore is in it. I am sorry but that woman is annoying to me. It’s because when she talks it looks like she’s gnawing on a bone. And that aint right. I do feel sorry for her because of her childhood. I can feel sorry for someone and respect them but not like them.

How did I go down that road? Elliot is adorable and reminds me of myself. I always thought someday I would find a hidden gift that instantly would make me special and loved by all. And I love the fact that he is so close to E.T. even though if E.T. stayed wouldn’t that be so weird when Elliot would find a woman that is suitable to marry? If you marry me, you have to marry E.T. as well! I think that is weirder then him saying he has a sneezing fetish. It’s a real thing, google it if you don’t believe me!

Of course there are other children’s movies that tug on my heartstrings but that is all I want to dwell on that for now. I also love the movies Thumbelina, Free Willy, Labyrinth, Hook, the first Ninja Turtles movie, and again the list goes on.

I don’t know about you, but I feel like a sucker when I fall for a motion picture movie and put it in my favorite sad movies list. Not to sound like an old fuddy duddy but they don’t make movies like they used to. And yes I might be talking about the mid 90’s.

My Grandma wanted to see this movie so bad because of all of the advertising and awards. She isn’t the type to go out to the theater or even watch on tv a movie but every once in a while she watches a movie that they talk a lot about on tv. If you ask her though she hasn’t watched a movie in 30 years.  She got a copy at Costco I believe and I watched it first. She doesn’t know how to work a VCR so it was up to me to cue it up after Granddad went to bed. I knew everything would be ok except the part where Forest and Jenny (Jennay) had sex. I was in the 7th Grade so of course that would of been awkward. I preplanned and walked into the kitchen, ate a slice of processed cheese, and went back into the same room after hearing a “what the hell?!?” she liked the movie overall she said she thought it was ok.

The kids in my school everytime one of their friends would take off in a steady jog or a run they would yell “run Forrest run!” and so sometimes I still say the same. I told my best friend Harry that little joke and so he says it too sometimes. I just love the movie. I don’t think anyone else could of been Forrest rather then Tom Hanks. I love how he stumbles into success in his life. In real life you would be irritated or upset with someone like that but in this movie you are rooting him on. I love the end when he learns he has a son and we see a little baby faced Haley Joel Osment. Forrest Gump is by far the best Dad to that little kid. He very patiently deals with day to day issues with raising a son and cherishes them. At least that is how I picture it. They have been playing this movie on various cable channels as they should be. This is a timeless movie.

My other favorite types of sad, gripping movies are the made for tv movies. I don’t really watch the newer ones, but why should I have to when the ones that were made in the 80’s and 90’s were so great. Whether they showed a dramatization of a famous event like the Tanya Harding movies or the Amy Fisher movies. Or based on a true story movies that based on stories that aren’t so famous that makes you inspired because the characters have gone through so very much. They always have one of those actors or actresses that you say, “Oh so THAT is what they are up to nowadays!” and you turn into a movie critique seeing if they can play more then a role in a sitcom or a typecasted role. But there is one specific movie that pops into my mind when I think of made for tv movies. It is I know my name is Steven that was first aired in 1989. That movie is so good. Not just the movie but a quick read through Wikipedia makes it that much better.

I know my first name is Steven

Oh yes, this movie is great if you enjoy made for tv movies.  A poor, typical American family with a stubborn Grandpa yelling at the parents because they can’t afford all of their kids they have.  Steven is a dysfunctional child but in an usual way.  He is quiet and keeps to himself, and he looks like he is just doing a lot of heavy thinking.  Like a mid-life crisis.  The father gets mad at him for not coming home right away after school and thinks about hitting him with a belt.  Which from what I read the parents were abusive towards their children and heavily believed in corporal punishment.  Steven promises to come home straight after school from then on after a “you are worrying your mother sick lately” speech.  The next morning while trying to round up their children to take them to school they found Steven, writing his name on the Garage door.

The father promises to deal with Steven later after school, and they all go their separate ways.  Meanwhile Ken Parnell is scheming to kidnap a child, trying to convince his dumber cohort that he just wants to be a father and he is going to get him a boy.  He goes to the school and sees Steven going straight home from school.  Steven Stayner’s case is rare because after 7 years Ken kidnaps another child after Steven is growing into a man, and then Steven realizes what has happened to him and he must save this other boy from the trauma he has endured.  That is the sweet part, in all reality Steven was probably just jealous of Timmy’s attention and that is why he didn’t want him around.  From what I have read online that is what the book says which I will eventually read.

When Steven goes back to his family it’s happy at first but then they admit that isn’t the Steven that was kidnapped from them 7 years before.  You would think the first part of the movie would be the most painful, it isn’t.  The mother wants to be motherly but the father feels angry, defensive and distraught about the situation.  Every time the mother wants to give him structure the father says he deserves to do whatever he wants because of what he has been through.  So Steven goes around drinking, having sex, skipping school, and raising havoc.  He craves structure, but on the other hand feels like no one can tell him what to do and gets defensive everytime one of his parents tells him to stop it.  He eventually moves into a trailer and gets his girlfriend pregnant.  About a year after this movie aired for the first time on tv, he died in a motorcycle accident.

I just told you the run down of this entire movie, but trust me it’s worth watching.  I don’t think it’s on DVD yet it’s only on VHS.  I would love to have a copy of it, but about 2 months ago I found a copy of it on youtube which unfortunately is gone now.   I have caught the movie on tv about 5 times or so throughout the years even though they don’t play it anymore I don’t think.  Even though there are movies on the lifetime movie network that are from 1992.

There is a where are they now type of update on wikipedia which I told you earlier is half of the fun nowadays.  Ken Parnell died on January 21st, 2008.  Yep, just the beginning of this year he was in jail and he died of natural causes.  What happened is this broken legal system especially states like California that have the three strikes law he only went to jail for FIVE YEARS because of what he did to Steven and kidnapping Timmy.  In January of 2004, he asked his caregiver (he was old and needed supervision at the time) to help him buy a 4 year old boy.  The caregiver told the police and helped in a police sting sending Ken to prison and thanks to the three strikes law (which I saw part of a documentary once proving the system to be complete bullshit) he was serving 25 to life.  In 1951 he was charged with sodomy of a young boy.

Now, that isn’t the whole story.  Steven had a brother by the name of Cary Stayner.  Have you ever heard of the Yosemite killer?  Yep, that’s Cary.  Cary admitted to having fantasies since a little kid about killing women.  He got arrested and put in jail for murdering 4 women in 1999 at Yosemite California.

I apologize if I made you bored by going off on a Steven Stayner rant at the end but I hope you learned some things about me and about things I know about with this blog.  You should at 2300+ words.  But if Americans are good at anything we are good at talking alot but not saying a damn word.
