Great. Can't find my liquid plumber and my drain snake is not working. My bathtub is a disaster.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

It's really nice outside tonight. Rainy, but the perfect temp.

Alzheimer's patients... They are something else. I can not imagine working on a ward with them. I hear stories about tag and make out sessions in the hall, and deal with the mass number of fire alarms pulled. Right back in school! Every single one of them I also deal with sundown phone calls, delusions and hallucinations, and rare escapes. You can typically find the men at the nearest diner, having coffee and pie. The women are like wild cats. Lol. Cute. Happy to be out and about for a little while and not so easy to get back in.

ETA: No escapes today but I often fondly reflect on the officers spending 55 minutes trying to carefully round up the female Alzheimer's patients in the parking lot, grounds and woods around of one nursing homes when they organized and succeeded an escape plan. They were running around and playing like little girls. The stories I heard heard were priceless.

My app is horribly buggy this morning.

Just watching the news a little while ago - someone butchered six miniature horses overnight in a small town south of Adelaide. I'm not often brought to tears by the news but this did it for me. Absolutely sickening, I hope they get the bast**rds. The owner, trainer, workers and police have all been utterly traumatised, my heart aches for them.

My great grandmother was often back on her small childhood farm. My moms mother reflected often at first but was a little too influenced by news. Everyone was stealing everything! Tissue, a paper towel, the sheets off her bed. No mamaw, they are being washed. Lol. Bless her.

One of my family members led the great coffee and pie escape at a local nursing home, on a few occasions. He had to spend the last 2 years of his life there. He had reached a point where he needed more care than his wife could handle or provide by herself. I am glad at least one member of the group still knew how to get to the diner People were always very kind, though. Set them up with a nice treat and called it in, if they were not already located first. It was their old hang out for years when they retired.


Ah! I am so ready to get out of here. We had nothing for hours but now we are covered up in bogus alarm calls and fallen trees thanks to 40 mph wind gusts.

Last year someone put a baby goat in a plastic bag in a nearby county, and threw it in a fast food joints dumpster. It was still alive, but beyond any hope when found. It killed the little guy and girl who found it. They were teenagers. I could not understand that either. I know mothers sometimes reject the baby because of a disease they can sense or smell. If that was the case, please do something more humane. If not... Plenty of people raise goats. They are excellent lawn mowers.

Finally done with my christmas shopping. It's good to say that.

Really not having a good time with nights this go around. Woke up yesterday. Was woken up by someone completely beyond lost (don't be) today. Sigh.

Eeeeeeee. Working with a part timer and he brought in 2 huge boxes full of christmas presents, on hand trucks, in hopes that I would help him wrap them. It's an absolute isht ton of gifts for his 4 kids, nieces and nephews. I don't mind helping, at some point. Would rather be playing with half of them, though.

Pardon the vague and vicious rant

Because a large majority are evil blood suckers, that's why. I would like to round them up and expose them to the sunlight so they can burst into flames and finally release their f**king death grip.

This is great. My mom is having problems with her hip, has no help cooking christmas eve dinner, I will be working the night before and can't get someone to cover half a shift for me so I can catch some zzz's and help her. One of my co workers has been out all 4, and it's needed. The other out 2, but I can't get help with 6 hours. The joys of having one part timer. I seriously wish we could cancel it this year. I didn't even finish decorating my tree. Really not in the mood. Just want to avoid people this year.

Oh for the love of all things PC. It's not an American,
Native American License Plate. It's an American Indian tag. You can say Indian. It's not a bad word. It's a rather good one. The Native American PC push did not come from this area. You can relax. You better, because you're going to see and hear it.

At my parents and they had a dinner party last night. We were up till about 3 drinking. Would it be in terrible taste to go down and ask the cleaning lady to try and be a little quieter?

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I wonder what the next "evolution" in racial naming will bring...
No MAS.

I am the new Black.

Well, our Christmas slowdown at work didn't materialise. Just as busy as it usually is, almost a full house, not good.

It was aged weirdo day at the discount store this afternoon. I also saw my ex's SIL, who five years after the breakup, still snubs me.

Anyway, I got a bed skirt for a dollar.

It's part of the American Indian movement, though it never went any where in Western NC.

So literally not American Native American license plates. I can't run ANA tag's. They do not exist.

I found glittery fiddle head fern Christmas tree inserts today. $2 each. Along with more owls. Little brown, tan and white ones. I loves them.

That reminds me, I need to go back to the Museum. I have not been in several years. Not since my cousin worked on a book as part of a literature initiative and held a signing there. Beautiful book. It's in Cherokee and English, and her illustrations were perfect. Another cousin has had his book added. I would like to go pick it up and check out the advanced/new installations. We took field trips there every year, and I always listened to the stories, over and over. It was great then, but now it's amazing.
