My niece Nyah got a stuffed animal dog for her birthday last sunday.When we asked her what she named it she did a quick head turn towards me and exclaimed.."AMY! I named my dog Amy!".Say whaaaa?!!!I wasn't sure if I should be flattered or insulted? I decided to be insulted when We asked nyah why she named her dog Amy she replied because I have the same hair as the dog. See below

"Oh Fudge!"

A couple of Sundays ago I did something bad something I am not proud of...And why am I sharing this with the world? Because you know what sometimes the truth must be said on your blog. It can’t be all roses and new babies and wonderful husbands this is real life people and it happens. And it all started with peanut butter bars. I was cooking them for a young man in exchange for season 5 of LOST (just so you know how important these were) unfortunately I had never made them so it was very tricky I put the butter in the microwave to soften and continued mixing the wet ingredients, then the dry and then in the oven they went. There was one minute left on the timer till they were done and I realized THE BUTTER! It was still in the microwave I forgot to take it out and mix it in! Ah crap! So I proceeded to make another batch I was very frustrated, it was Sunday dinner a million family members around children running babies crying yatta yatta! And that’s when it happened I knocked over a drink in the middle of my cooking it spilled all over and ruined the cooking book and several other things and that’s when the words slipped out of my mouth like the melted butter “Oh S#@&” the room fell silent it was like that scene in The Christmas Story when Ralphie blurts out “Oh Fudge!” It was in slow motion just like that scene. Realizing there was little ears around I tried to cover it up with a couple of “Oh shoots” but to late the damage was done, my family members slowly began to giggle I think due to the shock that they had never heard me say a swear word in my life and, that is why I am not proud of myself, I hate swear words and strongly disapprove of them. And worst of all my mom said “I didn’t even think you knew that word” sigh …yep just like a sailor mom I know them all. After that I vowed to never let a foul word come out of this pretty mouth again I also vowed to never make those “D@*#” peanut butter bars again 

Last night I was at stop and shop a rare occasion but it was on my way to a friend’s house and they had cheap fruit. When I pulled into the parking lot I noticed a less fortunate man with a shopping cart full of his belongings and a sign that I could not understand? After I got my discounted fruit and was checking out I remembered the man in the parking lot, and thought maybe I should try not being selfish for a minute and get him some food, the closest thing to the check out counter was bananas or candy …bananas seemed like a better healthier choice. So off I went, as I drove by the man I rolled down my window and handed him the bananas...Much to my surprise he had a disappointed look on his face…Why you ask? Well he explained to me that he was really just after money not food …Whowhat! (Is what I said in my head?) I was a little shocked to say the least. When did this rate go up?? The less fortunate no longer accepts food but would rather have a cash deposit? A little disgruntled by this I replied “I don’t have cash (The truth) but at least you won’t go hungry.” With an unsatisfied look and a sideways head nod he sighed and put the bananas in his basket. Not knowing what else to say or do and a little embarrassed my kind offering was rejected I put my car in drive and drove away. As you can tell I’m totally over this rejection 

My kryptonite.....

This IS IT!

AAAHHH YEAH! Baby! I saw it the Michael Jackson “This is it” and wow blew me away. Confession I have a theory (I have a lot of theories-don’t even get me started on men walking on the moon)this theory consists of –MJ really didn’t die that he faked his death and is living it up on some deserted island sipping pinacoladas and doing the moon walk. But once I saw this movie I changed my mind a little bit... Maybe he did die after all? And maybe he wasn’t such a weirdo? I understand him a little more. I was born the latter part of the eighties so I grew up with the creepy Michael... the Michael that held his baby over the railing and may or may not have done some sketchy things in never land(If ya know what I mean) so if you care to read here are my observations of the film:
1-He is very very very skinny he wore tight orange skinny jeans and boy did they show of his little legs.
2-Goes along with #1 his poor body. It‘s uncomfortable to look at, his nose looked like clay and his whole face looks really gross.
3- His hair is still unattractive pulled back perm “That’s so boss!”
4-He can move like no other! I have never been so jealous of someone’s dance moves I so wish I could dance like that.
5-He truly was a talented artist he had no chorographer he was the show and he knew exactly how to conduct it, he kept saying “let it Simmer” after a dance move…I think I will start saying that after I say things… or after I do something crazy …or Maybe after a kiss;)
6-He still talked like a high pitched school girl but very kind to everyone also Kept saying” God bless you” maybe I will start saying that ….especially after a kiss Ha!
7- He’s still got it! All his classic songs..Yep still sounded great! I have had Billy Jean stuck in my head all day!
8-I feel bad for him I think he just wanted to live a normal life and He never got that opportunity.
9-It’s a true pity this final performance was never performed it was going to be amazing from fire on the stage to fireworks to acrobats…A-MAZING!
10 -And probably one of my favorite things about the show was one of the musicians (trumpet player) was named Mo pleasure HA! Coolest name ever.

Faith or a lack there of….

Sometimes life is just not fair, sometimes it’s really not fair, sometimes you feel like you can’t pull yourself out of bed and take on another day. Sometimes life is so confusing you have no idea which way you are coming or going, Sometimes you feel like you are left in the dark with no flash light, AND sometimes you have to have faith that there is light just around the corner. Having faith has always been hard for me mostly because I’m a quitter I will admit it. I am I don’t like to do things that are hard, in fact I hate, despises even loath doing things that are hard that’s why I quit having faith its way to hard. I hate the feeling of failure or heartache or uncertainty therefore I will avoid it at any cost, and therefore it is hard for me to have faith that the hard things will work themselves out. This describes my life currently I have had a big week of learning experiences a big week of thinking I could not possibly pull myself out of bed and proceed on with life, I felt like I was left alone in my own Gethsemane…Then I remembered there is one who has been there one who has felt this, one who has literally been in Gethsemane one who was left alone in the most desperate hour of need ,and I remembered there is hope that there is a plan that there is a way. There is a way but no where is it written that it will be easy. and that’s where faith comes into play Just when you think that the lord has left you in your hour of need he gives you a glimmer of hope …a moment of happiness a reason to live be happy and proceed and that faith pays off and a teeny tiny piece of my heart is mended but in no way is it close to being back together. I think for maybe the first time in my life I truly understand the atonement I understand how families can have peace when a love one has passed, I understand forgiveness for someone who has deeply wronged you, and I understand the ability to overcome the hardest thing that has ever happened to you. Peace was a long awaited visitor that confirmed that he is in control, and when I doubt and there are things in life I just can’t figure out I have to have faith and trust that he is in control. This experiment of faith has been a big testimony builder it’s a test to see if I will follow through and really rely on him, also a first for me to completely rely on the lord I turned all of my heart ach over to him it was beyond my capability and no way could I proceeded on with life with out handing over all my troubles to the lord having faith that he would take care of them. And much to my surprise he took care of them! “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” This was the scripture that was read in church and never has it hit me so hard, so until life is figured out I will not be trusting in myself but in a much higher power.

WARNING: This post may not make any sense and may be pure rambling? But sometimes you have to get things off you chest and that is what I like to call a blog 

Is the name we heard over and over last night.Thats right people we went to the Jazz game. I had never been before,It was on my list of things to do before i die so Check off JAzz game! Bo got tickets form his work so we went and it was so much fun! The court was a lot smaller than on TV and its a lot more intense on TV, but I would have to say my favorite part was probably the Jazz Bear he is Hilarious and so talented unfortunately I was not able to get my picture taken with him. Also the jazz jerseys and the drunken people were equally entertaining. The Jazz won and it was a great night!As you can Tell some are more die hard than others:)

I just want to thank all of you for your educational e-mails over the past year.-unknown

. . I am totally messed up now and have little chance of returning to normal life . . .
I no longer open a public bathroom door without using a paper towel or have them put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking ones nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine how many gallons of Trans fats I have consumed over the years.

I can't touch any woman's purse for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public bathroom.

I MUST SEND MY SPECIAL THANKS to whoever sent me the one about poop in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every envelope that needs sealing.

ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown) who is about to die in the hospital for the 1,387,258th time.

I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me, and St. Theresa's Novena has granted my every wish.

I no longer eat KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers..

I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

THANKS TO YOU I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.

BECAUSE OF YOUR CONCERN, I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer can buy gasoline without taking someone along to watch the car so a serial killer won't crawl in my back seat when I'm pumping gas.

I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr.. Pepper since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put 'Under God' on their cans.

I no longer use Saran Wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer.

AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW I can't boil a cup of water in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face.. Disfiguring me for life.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer receive packages from UPS or Fed Ex since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise.

I no longer shop at Target since they are French and don't support our American troops or the Salvation Army.
I no longer buy expensive cookies from Neiman Marcus since I now have their recipe.

AND THANKS TO YOUR GREAT ADVICE I can't ever pick up $5.00 dropped in the parking lot because it probably was placed there by a kid napper waiting underneath my car to grab my leg.
I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because water splashes over 6 ft. out of the commode.

I can't do any gardening because I'm afraid I'll get bitten by the brown recluse and my hand will fall off.

If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 p.m. Tomorrow afternoon and the fleas from 12 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbors' ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's beautician . . .
Oh, and by the way.....
A German scientist from Argentina , after a lengthy study, has discovered that people with insufficient brain activity read their e-mail with their hand on the mouse.. Don't bother taking it off now, it's too late.

Can you believe I haven’t even been to Zeppe’s all summer!!!??? And it is seriously my favorite place! So I went today and it was delicious as ever. I ordered half strawberry half pina colda gelata as I ordered the young high school boy taking my order said” No way! I have been recommending that to people all day and you are the first to order it and think of it all on your own.” I said “No way!” Interesting how much I and a high school boy have in common besides our same length of hair. And as I was enjoying my Zeppe’s I thought to myself that when I die instead of people going to the bar to shots( because I know they will miss me that much) I want them to go to Zeppe’s and do Zeppe shots in my honor. I know random but hey it’s my funeral ….
