Day 4: " I've got brand new tattoo..."

So, obviously I didn't post yesterday.  Yeah, I was doing things and stuff and whatnot.  AKA... went to dinner with friends, met with husband and his friends at a bar... oh yeah, got a tattoo!  Woot Woot... Ok, kids, it was 6 years between the last tattoo and this one.  I forgot that tattoos friggin hurt!  Went to the tattoo place and was like the first person there which was awesome because from start to finish - from talking to the guy about the tattoo I want to walking out with new ink - it took an hour.  AWESOME!  While I was waiting for tattoo man to draw up my picture, a couple girls walked in, both 18 yrs old. Great. The large, tattooed man behind the counter (who had tattoos on his face and eyelids) greeted them and said,

"Hey. How can I help you?" 
Girl 1: "I want a hello kitty tattoo on my hip." 
Tattoo Man: "Uhh... I'm gonna have to google that..."
Girl 2: "I want the word 'Love' on my hand in cursive." 

At this point I wandered away to keep from laughing at them. I am apparently getting old because when girl 2 said that she wanted a tattoo on her hand, I immediately thought "Ok, you obviously never plan on having a professional job." I realize this is hypocritical since I was there to get a tattoo as well, however, mine is on my back and can be covered easily.  Whatever.  So, without any further ado, the new tattoo:

Cute huh?  It hurt like a bitch, but I didn't cry or scream, so that's good on my part I guess. This is number one in a two part series.  The next will be blue and purple. Super excited... however,  now that I remember how damn painful it is to get a tattoo, it may be another 6 years before it happens.  I'll keep you posted.

PS: I know that I failed with my goal of posting everyday for 30 days, whatever. It may just end up that I am unable to post on Saturdays. So, I will pick up from here as day 4 and move forward.  :)

Day 2: Winter weather advisory

Husband and I live in the south.  In case you have been living under a rock lately, the entire friggin country has had problems with snow and ice.  Now... people who live up north are used to dealing with this ridiculous weather.  We southerners have a more than a small problem with it.  It is true that schools let out and we completely freak out when half an inch of snow/ice/sleet/freezing rain/whatever falls.  It is also true that even the threat of winter weather causes EVERYONE to go to the grocery store and buy all the milk, bread, and eggs and shit kinda goes bananas.  Last week, we had more terrible weather (read, two inches of snow that fell for 4 hours) so yours truly had to go to the grocery store because husband and I will completely let ourselves run out of groceries before we go back to the grocery store, because it is hell and people there are ruthless. Anyway, I showed up at the gro sto and found a parking spot (no small feat people) and I went inside.  Walked around the store and picked out things that I thought we may need (*read* Ice Cream and cheese dip) and made my way to the check out.  I aged 40 years standing in line and finally made it out to my car... in the snow.  Ok, loaded the car while some guy in a prius stared at me and motioned for me to move my slow ass because he wanted my parking spot, because God forbid he park in the open spot two slots down. Awesome.  Got all my groceries packed in the car. Left the hell store. On the way home, I was in a 45 mph zone on a 4 lane road and the freaking out yuppie soccer mom in front of me in the giant SUV was taking her half out of the middle. Lady was driving down the middle of both lanes going 20 mph.  There were a lot of dirty words and unladylike hand gesutres going toward the "wonderful" driver in front of me. Finally turned on my road and was able to get home. Parked. Grabbed the first 3 bags of groceries and shlepped all that crap inside.  After making 3 trips, I was able to stay in out of the cold and started putting all the groceries away, but somewhere between the grocery store and my apartment, I lost an entire container of Ben & Jerry's ice cream... not a happy time. Moral of this story, I hate snow. It's cold. It's wet. It makes me grouchy because I get stuck at home and cannot get out of the bowl where my apartment complex is located. SUCKS!  Now, I know that people in the great frozen tundra laugh at us for freaking out about the minimal amount of snow we have to deal with one month out of the year... but I'll wager this... I'll bet that those people also would spontaneously combust if they had to deal with summer down here... 115 degrees with 98% humidity. End of rant for today.

Random things.

So, I'm earning a big fat epic fail on this posting more often thing, mostly because I have had writer's block lately, and kinda because I'm lazy right now because when I have to blog, I have to get out the computer and wait for it to load and all this crap which I don't have the patience for... Whatever, I'm here now, so let's do it.  This is gonna be a big ass post about random factoids about yours truly because I have been reading other blogs and this is what other people tend to do when they also have writer's block.  Fair warning, I will probably come back to this post for blog ideas in the future... Here we go...

A random number of facts about me with no explanation or point of reference:

  • When I am singing in my car, I think I sound like a rockstar.
  • When I sing karaoke I do not think I sound like a rockstar at all.
  • I love sushi, but I will not eat fish.

  • I hate it when people have a sense of entitlement and think they deserve every compliment when they haven't put forth any work.  These are typically the same people that take credit for other people's work but they do not take the blame when something they are working on is wrong.  These people irritate the shit out of me.
  • I use run-on sentences.
  • My sternum is bruised.
  • I know what medical terms mean and I know how to spell them correctly.

People, I am telling you right now, be prepared for some really random shit...

2011... I'm putting you on notice.

Dear 2011,

So far, you suck.  I trust that today is not an actual representation of how this year is going to progress.... SO HELP ME!!!  (shakes fist at nothing in particular)

First, I turned off my alarm this morning and overslept.  Ran through the shower and then after getting out and getting dressed, I realized I left my makeup in husband's car yesterday, which was with husband at work... an hour away from home. Then husband got sent home from work because he is sick.  Feel bad for husband, but he has meds so it is ok.  Worked an hour past when I was supposed to get off, then had to run errands. Didn't get home until 7:30 and didn't have dinner finished until 8:30.  *SIGH* Thank goodness that today is over.

Now that the bitch session is over... I'm back bloggysphere!  Be excited!! My resolution this year is to post more often.  I would like to say Happy Birthday to Stepdad, good luck/congratulations to my friend Mal who will be expanding her family at some point this week, and YAY for Charity for getting engaged, looking forward to her wedding weekend!  After my posting vacation, (AKA, I was a slacker and had a severe case of writer's block until now) I have a lot of things to discuss, but not right now because I'm tired and I want to sleep.  Goodnight everyone.
