Reading, I have been breezing through some books, tomorrow I will post some titles and brief synopsis’, just in case any fellow reader is interested in a good title.

I went to the salon today, I walked out with the same look I went in with…I need a stylist with balls…guess I need to find a male stylist, surely he’d have balls. I just want someone confident enough and willing to just grab some shears and whack away. I used to love that part, having a customer put their hair in my hands and giving me the freedom to just try anything…oh well…eventually I’ll find someone or just do it myself.

Just poured myself a glass of wine, will finish that, finish this and then call it a night, at least as far as my online activities go…I’ll be up reading….books are my life…does that sound pathetic to anyone else besides me?

What can O do for me?

My prediction for COBRA coverage was right at $1000.00, I received my COBRA information in the mail today, I was off, by $80.11, my monthly premium is now $919.89…fucking lovely.

Oh the irony of this is magnificently beautiful, COBRA comes at the expense of having no job, having no job means having no income, having no income means higher premiums, I’m not following the logic here, as most unemployed Americans facing the election of COBRA coverage, many opt out of it due to the higher monthly premiums. So do I feed my kids and keep a roof over our heads or have my eyes gouged…sheesh, the monthly premium is right about the same amount as my monthly mortgage, actually COBRA is higher than my mortgage, higher by over $100.00….the panic hasn’t set in yet…you will know…my blogs which are mild in language and vulgarities will change to ones filled with lots of Eff’s….fuck!

I think I am going to go eat cake and let this sink in.

I think I am also sending my kids out early to trick or treat, the first batch I’ll use for any kids coming to my door….


give me your candy~

The above is Mexican ingenuity.

Does the above seem bad? Of course it does, will I lose sleep over it…probably not, I lose sleep over more than that. Yes, I will burn in a place especially reserved for the unconscionable.


Don't judge~

I may have beer with my cake, don’t judge…I don’t care if it is still morning…maybe wine, wine and cake sounds better than beer and cake.

First off a big thank you to Jess, what a sweet girl, I didn’t have a daughter, but this is the closest to one I have. Love ya girl, thank you, thank you, thank you! Jess came over with fixin’s for Chicken Alfredo, salad, rolls and wine, she cooked everything from scratch and it was so good. I just had seconds a bit ago. We also watched a movie Angels & Demons, so she cooks and entertains, Carlo came later and he is just adorable.

Ladies – Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half
and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

Real Woman – Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and
drink. You might still have the headache, but who cares?

Ladies – Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of
a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

Real Woman – Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of
the cone, for Pete’s sake. You are probably lying on the
couch in your bathrobe, with your feet up, eating it anyway.

Ladies – To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in
the bag with the potatoes.

Real Woman – Buy boxed mashed potato mix and keep it in the
pantry for up to a year.

Ladies – When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking
pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won’t
be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

Real Woman – Go to the bakery – they’ll even decorate it for

Ladies – If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex
dishwashing gloves. They give a non slip grip that makes
opening jars easy.

Real Woman – Go ask the very cute neighbor guy to do it.

And finally the most important tip….

Ladies – Don’t throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze
into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

Real Woman – Leftover wine??
