It's amazing how much you can recall from a simple mention of a previous "infamous" case or trial. I had not thought abot the Mendendez Brothers in years, but as soon as I heard their names... Murdered their parents with shot guns in the late 80's. So that made me think of other infamous cases. Some I have very vague memories of due to my age, the lack of coverage, the main coverage being on a channel we didn't get or only got in specific weather conditions. I can slightly remember Diane Downs, the woman who shot her 3 children, in Oregon circa 83', because the man she was seeing with did not want them in the picture. I think I remember that more because of the trial coverage and made for tv movies about it. It was 11 years before another story like that came up... Susan Smith. Andrea Yates just a few years later, and more after that. Sick.

I can not wait for this shift to end. Yesterday flew by. I blinked and it was over. Today has dragging by. I feel like I have been here for 13 years, and counting. The weather is just strange too. Sunny one minute, black clouds the next, insane hail storm out of the blue, sun again... Make up your mind!

ETA: oooooh! I just realized how incredibly happy I am to be on days. Nothing sucks worse than being on nights during this particular time change. Your heart sinks when you watch the doomsday clock fall back one hour, making it a 13 hour shift. On the other hand, Springing forward while at work is great.

S***!S***!S***!

I just took Polly out for quick walk, completely forgetting I have a big blob of pink pimple cream on the tip of my nose.

And yes, a neighbor did see me.

Your pink pimple cream just made me giggle, though I don't mean to laugh at your pain


My friend needs to find a job or do something. Damn. He has been nothing but one huge mess since his last weekend at work. He texted me last night saying the guy he has been seeing was texting him all week, but kept avoiding him when he asked about hanging out. And he thinks he saw an add on Craig's List that had a picture of his body, but he isn't sure if it was his body, but it could of been. (The whole time I al thinking... why were you looking at the adds?) He calls me just a minute ago to tell me the whole story which sums up to... Guy invited him to his birthday party last weekend. BFF thought this was strange, because he knows none of his friends. Why would he want me to meet his friends? Is it because he just wants me to be a friend? Screw that! I didn't go. So then he starts texting me randomly, which equals he just texted about nothing for 2 days. Thursday and yesterday, and not all day. So he freaks out about that. Why did he text me two different times yesterday? Is it because he now just thinks of me as a friend? Wouldn't most people be happy about a party invite and a guy they like contacting them more? Am I spending too much time alone?

Yes, yes I think you are.

I'm like look, you said he was probably moving back home soon, he is working his notice at his job, and if he does just want to he friends, that's okay. He's probably not going to be here anyway. Just take a f**king Xanax and chill out. The next time someone invites you somewhere, GO! Step away from the computer and go!

I could hear desperation all around him. I sincerely hope he does not pull his regular crap. This is not the first time he has quit his job of 17 years. He has done it 3 times before, for just a few months at a time, but things are different now. New owners, not his friends of 20 years anymore. At different times he has wanted a change, been dating a new guy who was getting ready to move, quit work and ended up going with the guy. I talked him out of the last one because the guy was a total lush and he honestly couldn't stand him. He just flips out, wants to get out of town, grasps at straws and ends up in Omaha Nebraska. Yeah, like that was going to be soooo much better. I gave it 5 months, he was back in 4. I gave DC 2 months, he was back in 1.5. Idk why he keeps doing this. He loves it here, but he has to be miserable no matter what. That is him.

So is everyone all agog with curiosity to find out what I spent my free $100 on?

It cost a bit more than the gift cards but I'm happy.

Brown military style jacket, gold sweater, leopard print drape neck blouse, tweed skirt, and hounds tooth skirt

^ NICE! You got some beautiful things, TRBL. Love the jacket. I have a similar dark navy one and have gotten a lot of wear out of it.


I have made the best time this morning. Got up and was ready in no time. I've been relaxing and listening to music since. I've also been thinking about my co worker who passed away a couple of years ago. I dreamed about him last night. He was yelling, "Crotch Crickets!!". Long story involving an extra weird call he took, but it became one of his favorite things to randomly yell about. Lol. I miss him.

Organizing Christmas gifts in my spare room this morning. and I find a bag of items that I needed for a baby shower this afternoon. Serendipitous. I'd feel much better about it if I hadn't told the organizer more than once that I was positive if given the bag to her and she must have misplaced it. Whoops.

I've done this more times than I care to count. Mortifying. Big hugs

Maybe the neighbor just assumed Claudine pulled out the Zinka. Going out with blobs of color on your nose/face used to be coolest of the 80's cool.

I probably still have 5 tubes of that stuff in my missing turquoise and hot pink Caboodle. I have been searching for it, for years.

I need to call my favorite Auntie and thank her. I just opened the Halloween card she sent me (she is the card sending queen) and she included $5 with a note saying I was not allowed to spend it on anything but chocolate. I love her.


I need the find the sneezing worm gif from Fox and the Hound again. Omg. I am one hair pin sneeze away from losing my life.

I am looking at an arial view of my old high school and I can't even recognize it anymore. We had the Old English building and English building. It just had an addition, and was where your English/Lit & History classes were held and also contained the cafeteria, lobby and offices. Then you had the cross section with art/band and chorus room, gym, locker rooms and showers on one end and stairs going up the science building. Guess what you did in there? A long walk from the SB you had the auto mechanics/shop class and the new building. Because it was new, and filled with math, special education and foreign language classes. Now they have 6 new buildings. They no longer teach any trades. They got a brand new locker room just off the football field and a new gym & lunch room. I have no idea what they have in the old ones now. It looks like they tore some stuff down and made room for more parking and traffic circles, because we all just have to have those pointless things now.

^ *Aerial. My phone is thinking of my friend, not a photograph.

My co worker and I were talking about the mass idiocy in cutting all trades classes from the high school. Isht just fixes and builds itself now. No one needs to know how to do that. Given the area we live in, it's even dumber. The job opportunities include trades, hard labor, cashier, wait staff, bank teller, county or state jobs. That is about it. They cut the telephone company employees down to work crews and out sourced or moved the office personnel and operators to other states.

rou, leopard print goes in and out of fashion. Buy one in merino it will cost less, and be easier to care for in between styles.

Where in the eff is my friend. He was supposed to call me last night (if it was before 10) or today and tell me how last night went, but it's been radio silence. Not good. He's probably having a Bronte moment.

Oh, how neat. I just saw an area middle school chorus was chosen to sing at a big event for chorus teachers. It's apparently a huge honor, and must be something new because I never heard of it in 4th- 12th grade chorus years. And besides, we would have won. We never lost a single competition, until our teacher left just before our senior year and we ended up with woman who made us sing Disney songs in costumes. Not nearly as impressive as complicated songs in German and Latin. It was pretty pathetic.

I put my back out on Saturday evening (who'd have thought putting plates to warm in the oven was so dangerous). I suffered through work Sat night but had to call in sick Sunday, first sick night in over two years. It's Monday afternoon now and I'm still sore, can't stand for long periods and am walking like a duck. While I'm usually quite happy to watch TV, it loses it's appeal when I'm doing it cos I can't do anything else. Poo.
