Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Sunday Stealing - The Negativity Meme
Today we ripped this memeoff blogger named Flea from the blog Flea's World.She states that she stole it at Warty Mammal. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us atSunday Stealing!
Scalloped potatoes (my mom made them a lot when I was a kid, and they disgust me simply because they are too rich) or anything covered in cheese. I should say that I like nachos and I like pizza. Certain foods are fine with cheese in my opinion. WAIT!!!! You know what I really hate? Well, I have never tasted it, but when I look at it, I kind of throw up in the back of my throat a little. It is the KFC chicken bowl thing. In general, it is kind of like a KFC shepherd's pie, but they add freaking cheese. I just simply cannot get behind this. I think that sometimes you just need to say no to cheese.
TV show I loathe:
I haven't seen it yet, but I am thinking I am going to hate Survivor Heroes vs Villains. This is mainly because I really like Survivor, but I am really tired of specific players and do not care to see them any more. I just think that they have gotten more than their share of their 15 minutes. I am sure that in the real world some of these people are probably not horrible. Then again, maybe they are. I simply do not care to see them on Survivor again. I got to wonder who picks these returning contestants, because so many times there are definitely people I would like to see again, but it never happens. *sigh* Honestly, I am not sure if I can watch this next round.
Movie I loathe:
I am a huge horror fan. I love scary movies and thrillers. This movie drove me batty. It was like watching a very long Tool video. Here is a clip that kind of makes my point of why I didn't like it (if you watch it don't stop until the nurses get moving at least) and why it was like a Tool video. If you know who Tool is anyway.
Music genres I loathe:
There is a certain type of country music that I am not fond of. I can't think of any of the songs other than "Sideways" by Dierks Bentley. I don't even not like Dierks Bentley. I just hate that song. I hate the video even more. It bugs me. Nothing personal meant by this if you do like it. More power to ya. I honestly do not want to see fist pumping country acts. That is just how I am.
Magazine which annoys me:
I started reading Cosmo when I was like 17. I learned everything that it could teach me in about three years. It simply does nothing for me anymore. The information is just way to recycled. Oh I also hate magazines that continually talk about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's relationship meltdown and anything related to that. I am pretty sure we all are wise to their BS.
Makes me cranky at restaurant:
I am rarely cranky at restaurants. I simply do not get to go to them enough in order to get cranky about anything happening around me. OOOOH!!!! Wait! I hate that the wine glasses are now freakin' goblets which makes it look like I am totally getting the short end of the stick on wine. This usually makes me order more which gets me drunk, because I can handle my beer and my mixed drinks, but I cannot handle wine.
Makes me cranky in public:
People who gab on their cell phones constantly while basically ignoring the person they are with.
Makes me cranky in general:
People who drive like asses.
I live off of a little two-lane highway. Many people do in my area. We have to wait for traffic to go by before we can enter the road, because more often than not, there is a freakin' parade of cars that drive in the right lane rather than the left lane. This is not a metropolitan area. Most of the people who travel this little highway are people who live in the general vicinity. They see a line of us waiting to get out, but give us the whole "screw ya" and travel enmass in the right lane. I understand not getting over if you simply can't as there is someone in the left lane, but there will be like ten cars in a row who could move over but choose not to. I hate starting my commute getting pissed off over this.
I also hate people who use an exit lane as a passing lane, and the dorks who let them.
Really, driving in my town is a nightmare plain and simple. I never thought I'd miss driving back East.
Pisses me off at home:
I have some creepy neighbors. They don't piss me off as much as kind of creep me out. They are just a little on the weird side. They have little warning signs on their doors and when you drive by them, they look at you like they are part of the cast of Deliverance. Seriously, you can almost hear the banjos.
Pisses me off at work:
When I first arrive at work, I have a pile of stuff to do. It takes me a good hour to get certain tasks taken care of in the morning. I work from 7:45 am to 2:00 pm four days a week. When I come in the door on Tuesday, I have to hit the ground running as I have a lot of work to take care of. Literally I am busy the entire time I am at the office from simply answering the phones to working on finding and booking guests for our Monday morning interview program, lining up volunteers for our concerts and pledge drives, entering information into our database, doing show prep for my on air spot on Thursdays, checking our station's Myspace page, and taking calls for song requests or questions about songs. People call me and think they can just take up 20 minutes of my time at a time because I am a receptionist. They know about my on air work and other prep that I am doing, but they seem to think that if they do not hear the phone ring, I can just shoot the breeze with them! Then when the phone does ring, they wont shut the heck up so I can get it. They just say "Oh I'll let you go, I hear your phone ringing" but they don't shut up! They proceed to say how they appreciate my listening to them and blah blah blah, meanwhile my system goes to voice mail if not picked up by the second ring! DRIVES ME CRAZY! I am not speaking about family either. These are listeners. I love to talk to them, but not the moment I walk in and certainly not for 20 minutes at a stretch.
Pisses me off in general:
When people call my cell rather than my home phone or work phone depending on where I am. I hate having to hunt down my cell phone at home or work, and I certainly do not like talking on my cell phone when I am at the front desk. It looks shabby.
Makes me impatient at home:
Waiting to use the one bathroom we have, but what can you do?
Makes me impatient at work:
When someone uses the bathroom in the front foyer and they spray Lysol or something else designed to clear up stink but really only clouds it over with a fragrance that is more often than not overly sweet and strong. Please...just turn on the fan and shut the door. Heck, light a match even!
Makes me impatient in public:
Grocery shopping behind a person who parks their cart in one part of the aisle and proceeds to block most of the remaining space with their bod basically standing beside their cart covering the aisle completely as they look oh so slowly at what is on the shelves. For a nice definition look at this link at Urban Dictionary - Aisle Whore
Celebrity I hate:
I can't even come up with a celebrity I like. Okay...I lie. I like a few. The rest simply do not concern me enough to conjure up hate.
Music artist I hate:
Madonna annoys the crap out of me. It all began with her fake British accent, and snowballed from there.
I could care less about:
Trista and Ryan Sutter. I should not know their names at this point, let alone anything else about their lives, but every year or so they are on People magazine. OOOOH I hate you People!
Annoys the crap out of me weekdays:
That I DVR two soaps and one is recycling the same freaking storyline again. I am just glad that I do use the DVR, because I get to fast forward through the tripe.
Annoys the crap out of me weekends:
Blogger's habit that annoys you:
? I simply do not get the point of this question and that annoys me.
Feature on your blog you hate:
I don't have a feature. I just go.
Movie star you despise:
Will Smith. No, not really, I just picked the first name that came to me.
Politician that you hate:
I don't hate any politician. I may hate their policies and their views, but I don't hate any one politician.

Hubby portraying pomposity (not a word...I think)
Because IHEART RADIO STINKS IMO
Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
