I'm awake.

My Sis-in-law and I were outside all day with the kids. We had lunch and dinner. Lunch was a no brainer...Hot dogs, Burgers, and PB&J's. I marinated chicken for dinner and made two pasta sides and a quicky pilaf for dinner. My friend Colleen came over to spend some QT with us, and after work her fiance joined us. FYI: Ms. Lyn is standing up for her gf in a years time. Woo hoo. I am so honored.

The party pooper clouds and thunder rolled in and we headed for cover. Boo to fake storms. We have had so many actual SEVERE storms that now everyone freaks(including me) when the sky turns dark and rumbling can be heard. I live in CT. BY now my biggest complaint should be that it is too hot & humid.

I can say humidity is high...I have had to empty the dehumidifier daily. Normally twice a week. Can you imagine what icky things would grow down here if I didn't stay on top of the dumping?

Onto a Z file ... My littleman and his cousins found some beetles to put in the cool bug collecting kits that Aunty Molls had given them on Saturday at the Grad party. I think I might have mentioned that I believe Z is an entomologist in the making.

Anyhoo...They put two beetles into the container(bug friendly of course) and I get to bugasit. At this point I am sitting with Colls and we are being silly with the Zobmondo(I've posted Zob in the past) stuff. So I see that the container is wet and decide to dry it out by putting it in the sun. Oops. Bugaside. I actually killed the one beetle that was actually alive at one point.

Ahh well.

Sweet dreams to all.

Stop the clock!

Hey there "Mr.Time" who told you that you could mess with my days bud. Give me some space. Oh wait, that's right there is no time in space. I guess I'll have to fudge the timeline.

I was born on the 5th of July. My Dad on the 3rd. Can you guess when we actually celebrate? Independence day, hoorah!

It's been decided that this year we will not do the norm. So instead of starting early & ending early, we are going to start mid-afternoon 3:00-4:00ish and have great food instead of hot dogs and hamburgers. Oh we will keep the old faithfuls ready for the kids who will scoff at our culinary brilliancy, but our mouths will not touch them unless to test for heat factors.

We will do the smores of course. A couple of kilns lit. Torches lit. Tents with bug screens for the gamers. Swimmers still squealing. And in the background the many sounds of fire-crackers and bottle-rockets.

Most people will leave to catch a firework show that I adamantly will say Hell no to. Not because its not a good show, but it is a waste of 4 hours for a 20 minute show that I won't get to see because I'll be chasing Z down.

Mom said it best when she gave the reminder that Aaron pretty much screamed his head off when he was little.

I think I will stay home and watch the ghetto works instead. Garden hose at the ready, Cell phone on my hip, and a prayer that nothing in our hood goes wrong.

7 days...

Seven days to 38. I am so excited. To me it's my New Year. My year of re-birth, hope, and renewal of My-Self.

On this day I want to say how grateful I am to be alive. No I am not pulling a Drama Queen on you. Seriously. Think about it. You only hear about the famous or infamous passing. Well Crap. I had two buddies of mine pass within two weeks of each other and the oldest was 49. If you want to shudder the other was 38.

Does this mean I am going to watch my step? No. I am going to be living my life. I don't think I'd be giving my sons any service by becoming "Bubble Mom".

This year I think I will:

Be more silly than normal.

Hug my family, (even those that hate contact).

Start the reading circle I wanted to but haven't yet.

Forgive those that have been on my go-away list.

Find at least one new friend.

I have more, but I have 6 more days to add to my list.

Love to all. Sweet dreams.

Vanna doo.

Today was my nephew's Graduation party. I missed most of it because I was at work, but thats OK. I got the spa treatment when I arrived. My niece did my hair, makeup, and painted my toes. Not bad at all. Thank you Vanna!

I seriously need some good sleep to repair that tired face. Next weekend is my Birthday. Yay! I don't want to look like a corpse. Eek.

Duck time.

I have to give the duck some space. She gets pissed when I ignore her. So we went and found a couple of, well, Ducky stuff. (Don't pick on the Rubber Duck. Ducky gets pissy about that.)

Oh look...It's an album and it's Vynil. What size is it? If you just want to hear the song click the first one. If you want to grasp its meaning and see the greatness click the second.

I am putting Ducky down for the night.

Sweet dreams!

Good Times!

I love when my day starts off on a high note. This morning I got to work and the first song I hear is one that makes me act a bit silly.

My Boy Lolipop - Millie Small

It's a guaranteed smile from me, and sometimes an impromtu performance. I love being silly. It's fun.

Music has always been a big part of summertime for me. Certain songs bring up smells, or feelings from my childhood. I wrote about Drive-ins earlier this year. Some of the best times I had during the summer were spent at the drive-in with family and friends. Mom would pack us into the station wagon, pajama clad, and over-excited. We didn't care what movie was playing. We were going to the Drive-in.

Mom always made sure we ate before going, but there was the occasional splurge on some soggy fries and popcorn. We shared and rarely complained. Most of the time we brought in our snacks. That's when my brothers and I hardly noticed that we didn't get the concession food. She would make popcorn in advance, allow us to spend "so" much on penny candy at the store, and bring kool-aid in a container. Life was good!

You know what's funny? We never made it through the second movie. Oh I am sure Mom did, but us kids crashed and burned shortly after the Main feature started. I think that's why she brought us there. The only time we ever stayed fully awake was during ET.

I loved the smell of the drive-in. Food scents wafting in from all directions. Trees surrounding the perimeter sending us earthy kisses from their leaves. And when the sun went down and the air cooled you could smell sun-lotions, and mysterious scents that you knew nothing of when you were young.

And my personal favorite was when the intermission shorts came on. This silly little girl would look forward to dancing Hot dogs and Popsicles. I know I'm not the only one out there that did. So I hold my head up high and say "Yes. I was a intermission junkie." I needed to see the conga line of snacks perform for me before I could allow myself to brave the line at the restrooms.

I really miss being able to pack up and go like Mom did. We had several when I was younger, but now we have, I believe, two left in my State. Neither are close enough to make it an enjoyable trip. Part of the magic was to go to the double feature and then be home about 20 minutes later.

If I ever come into a huge amount of money I am opening a Classic Drive-in. I think I would also start a foundation to save the ones that are still surviving under tremendous financial burden.

The family that plays together stays together!

Sweet dreams to all.

This and That.

Just when I thought that Noah's Ark was going to dock over here in CT the sun sort of made an appearance. I am a huge fan of rain and dreary days, but that's me. I was becoming concerned for those that are sun bugs. It was weird to see people who were always out, happy, and doing things, become sulky, bored, and well, miserable. I am certainly glad that this weekend our forecast is nothing but sun. I wonder if that means I will become morose..NOT!~

Morose-- gloomy: having a withdrawn gloomy personality: Hmmm...More Rose...Oh sorry it's that I am going to resurrect the Princess stuff. The roses don't always smell pretty sweetheart!

Oh. Look it goes with the Rose Madder as well. Silly me.

Enough of that. Out with the sun comes the fun. I was sitting pool side while my son, niece, and nephews decided they were going to brave the frigid waters in the sake of starting summer. My brave little ones. Four adults and four children, and not one of us adults even considered going in. Oh believe me, had it been an emergency we would have jumped in the polar water in a flash. Mom first, she is the best swimmer & instructor out there. Closely followed by me & Molls. G.J. standing by to administer CPR and/or comfort anyone. She is an awesome person. Very level headed and calm.

While the penguins went for a dip I was amusing myself. Feel free to answer these yourselves. Let me know if you do, so I can see your responses. Be fair and share! :)

If you had to rearrange the letters of your first name to give yourself a new name, what would it be?

Let's see. My name is Lyn so my options are limited. "Nyl"...Oh gee...That's a good one. "Hi there. My name is Nyl. Glad to meet ya. Don't worry about me. I'm not really here." Hee hee.

When you look back on the life you have lived to this point, what amazes you most?

That I am not the person that I intended to be. I said no children...I have two beautiful boys. I said that I would marry once and stay married...Oops...I am divorced, but I did marry just once(so far)...I said that one day I would be famous...well, OK, almost, but not quite.

The show must go on...

The Show Must Go On - Queen

If, with your safety guaranteed, you could experience something considered very dangerous, what would it be?

Hang gliding. I want to fly. Not inside a plane, but out in the wide open. I want to taste, feel, and smell the air. Hopefully I don't pee myself out of fear. Aside: afraid of heights.

Suppose that instead of having a name, you had a number, and people would always refer to you as that number. What number would you be?

314...yeah I know too simple but not really.

If you had to describe your personality in terms of a farm animal, which animal would you choose?

Oh right...Hmmm...Duck. As if I would say anything else and piss off my other persona.

I had a final question but I can't seem to answer it right now.

What is the one trip that you have never taken but would really like to take someday?

I started drooling. Oh the possibilities. I can't choose.

Sweet dreams to all!

Once Upon a...Life is but a dream.

Hello. Hello. I poofed for a bit. Not on purpose. I just had stuff I had to do. Life works that way.

I have much to share, and of course it doesn't have anything to do with anything.

Welcome to "Once upon a Life is but a Dream."

Life Is But A Dream (2007 Remastered LP Version) - Art Garfunkel

Did you ever see the movie "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"? I love this movie. Mostly because it brings me closer to my Dad. He loves Charles Bronson, Clint Eastwood, and Sylvester Stallone.

My version is much simpler. No blood and guts (unless you crawled in my head at a few points in time), no crappy one liners, and no weapons(I am not counting the mighty sword of words)!

OK. For your appetizer I offer you this: Would you continue to associate with a person if they made you uncomfortable? I am posing this question in the professional and casual sense. And when I say uncomfortable I mean Alpha..A-Type...A big PITA in my head and wearing me down.

I can take a lot of crap but lets just say that this one has me at that Sledgehammer point.
So...Mirror Mirror on the wall who's the fairest of them all you stupid wanna be control freak.
Hah. I thought so. Shut up!

Okie Dokie then...

Main Course tonight is one Hellacious serving of BS. I finally got child support. Hurrah! That side of the family "forgot" Z-mans b-day! Z is saying things he should not be saying....Hmmm...Shit is one of them...Not me by the way. I do, however, own up to his saying "Crap" and "Jesus"...I have the biggest truckers mouth but I control myself to a point around him.

People coming out of the wood works that I have not seen in forever. What would you do? How would you feel? Me? Hmmm? Do not adjust your sets folks I believe we've entered the twilight zone. Oh crap! Not the vampire Twilight folks...the actual Zone...Anyone..anyone?

I believe that people come and go in your life for a reason. When they come back its either you or the other that has closure to achieve. If it's meant to be a sustaining friendship then it will continue, but if the tree is rotten walk away!

My dessert: I have slept well the past few nights. I needed it. I read Rose Madder ~Stephen King. I visited the grave of my buddy Twisted and said my goodbye. My Creative Cogs are turning and I want to write my everything and anything.

I want to revive my Princess and breathe life into her. I think she should come back as a kick ass dork that loves life and tells everyone to beware the roses unless you have common sense.

This wouldn't work anyway...Human behavior is so predictable. You see something as beautiful as a rose and you just have to smell it. Don't ya?

I missed it. I missed Top Chef. OK, so I missed both of my shows this week. Sunday I missed Next Food Network Star, and now this. Ah well. I must make it a point to hunt them down on the Web later.

I can't believe how tired I was yesterday. I was going to just lie down for a bit and then get up to watch my show, but my son Aaron came in my room to help me get into bed. I was that zonked. I woke up once this morning around 5:00 to use the bathroom, grab a drink of water, and then passed out again.

Zachary was just as tired. He slept the entire time. He played hard yesterday though.

Yay! Have a nice day!

Wednesday, June 17, 2009


I am looking forward to tonight's Top Chef Master's show on Bravo.

I am looking forward to my heating pad, and my room being quiet.

I love that today is Wednesday.

I love that when I shut my eyes I can sleep.

I want to sleep. A good sleep. I am tired, and my body is failing me.

I want to sleep.

I want for clouds of pillow white to embrace me and send me to Heaven.

I want to be strong and fight. I want to not be a wimp.

I want my Guardian Angels to come and help me.

I am just tired.

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

I have some catching up to do. As you all know my baby boy turned 4 years old on Sunday. The B-day bash was, however, for not only him but for my niece Alyssa(17), my niece Jade(6), and my nephew Quentin(4). Quentin and Zach are 2 weeks apart. Here are some pictures from our awesome day.

Z-man showing off his ribbons.

Amber, Jade, and Quentin hanging out like the big kids.

Gee...I wonder which one is Alyssa? Kisses sweetums.

Me and my bud Ames.

I have some reading to do. Sweet dreams all.

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Happy Birthday Z-man.

My little man turned 4. Yay!

Happy Birthday Zachary!!!

Friday, June 12, 2009


Just two more days until my Z-man turns four. Sniff! Time sure is flying by. My Mom sent me this clip. I thought I'd share. Zachary used to do the same thing all the time.

My 1st Award!

I got my 1st Award!!! Yay! LivingDeadNurse and Blaez both awarded me with the Friends award. Thank you both for making this Duck shake her tail feathers!!

This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I know that some of these bloggers are going to receive multiple, but hey I am listing from the same pool. The list is alphabetical by blog name.

1. Julie over at A Day in the Life She's a sweety. Charming and honest.

2. Karen over at A Peek at Karen's World The ever so witty and charming to boot. I love reading her blog.

3. Akilah over at Akilah Sakai Out Loud If I need to smile, or laugh out loud she is there.

4. LivingDeadNurse over at LivingDeadNursesPsycoWard She gave me this award, but had it not been sent by her she'd be the receiver. She just rocks.

5. Valerie over at Next to Heaven Another Sweety. She also is charming and honest.

6. RCG over at Red Curl Girl This chica has me cracking up all the time.

7. Deborah over at The peach Tart I just started following this blog, but let me tell you she is awesome.

8. Blaez over at These Are The Days of One Gemini I was honorable mention from my girl Blaez. She wanted to send it as well so I just accept that she did do so. She is the "bestest" person, and all around friend. I needed help, and she answered without hesitation. She rocks!

This should be really interesting. Round robin of award giving. I can't stop smiling. OK. Now to go tell you guys you got an award. Oh and I have to write, yes hand write, five lovely "Thank you" cards to my son's teacher's. I can use any help here.(So tempted to just print them from on-line.) I know..I know. I will painstakingly write all of the whole five cards which are so cute by the way.

Sweet dreams all.

Top Chef Master's.

I love Top Chef. I am not sure how many of you out there have seen the show, but I am totally addicted.

Tonight's premiere brings a twist. It's Top Chef Master's!! There are Chef's from all over competing to win to give the top prize to the Charity of their choice. How awesome is that?

Another difference is they are challenging the Chef's in small groups of four. The winner moves on to the Champion round. Twenty-four Chef's competing for the six Champion round spots. They still have to do a Quick Fire challenge as well as the Elimination challenge just like the previous 5 season's of aspiring Top Chefs.

I have to say this was by far the most fun I had watching the show. I don't want to spoil it for those of you that haven't seen it yet. If you are a fan please let me know. I think I may do a weekly post.

For more information regarding TCM click here.

FYI..My favorite this round actually made it.

I think I should end it with some Master of Puppet's by Metallica. Click and listen only if you want to.

Master of Puppets - Metallica

A penny for your thoughts.

Mrs.C over at Next to Heaven put this up for all to share on what they would store for their future selves and family. Not just ramblings like I tend to do, but think about ten things that you would want to see and share 50 years from now. I love this. I want my sons, and eventually my grandchildren and great-grandchildren to see what my life and the world was like in 2009.

If you could put 10 things in a box to be opened 50 years from now what would you put in it?

I would put:

1. A photo album with pictures of everyone in the family, friends included.

2. My poetry.

3. My Indian dolls, pouches, and stones.

4. A video of the annual 4th of July Birthday BBQ.

5. My self-repaired Cheerio Cereal Box covered Dictionary.

6. All my culinary secrets.

7. A hand written letter from me now to the future me and mine.

8. Clippings from all of todays headline news Local, US, and World.

9. Seeds from Grandpa and Grandma's gardens.

10. Some dirt from the garden in a tube to remind where we rooted ourselves long ago.

Damage control.

I seriously under estimated the power of NO. I guess I was just born to be a "Yes please," and "Thank you" person. I have been trying to tell myself over and over I am done with apologizing for just about anything in general. I was doing really good too. I guess that's not in my nature, because I just became a book in the Lemony Snickets Series of Unfortunate Events. And yes. It was that surreal.

I keep getting blubbery just thinking about the silly nature of what has happened and will of course follow because of choices I made. I know I should be thankful for everyone, and everything in my life so far, but I am questioning the "why".

It seems I must have really pissed off someone. I don't want to think that it's God. I know He is forgiving and I am not a bad person. I just don't get it.

Before I proceed I wanted to share a song that I love and summarizes how I feel right now. It's not the actual video, but it combines some of my favorite things. Oh, look I made an unintentional funny "These are a few of my favorite things."

Now what could possibly make me so sad? Everyone has their beliefs. I believe in positive creates positive. I try to avoid negative things. I am not very good at this by the way. I just like people in general. I will always be this way so I am probably going to repeat this post in a year to come. Thank you GreenDay for Walking Contridiction.

I also believe in Angels and Demons, good vs evil, things come back to you three fold, and watch what you say, and/or wish for.

Back to what did I do to deserve this punishment. I do not know. I am sorry. I am at a loss.

My day in brief:

Meet for an appointment which I can't talk about. Hmm. Maybe that's the problem.
Have my purse stolen with nearly everything in it just after the appt.
Sitting in the WPD to file a stolen purse report knowing that whoever has it now knows where I live AND has my house key...Yippeeee!
Stew the fact that I live in a city where the ratio of good to bad is possibly 75% good. I am being generous.
Love my Mom for just being there with me through it all very patiently, and for being my brains while I freaked out.

I am leaving some stuff out. Yes there was more to the day, but this Duck can only take one punch at a time.

You know what gets me really bent? They walked away with 3 dollars and maybe some change at the bottom. I do not carry cash on a regular basis. Don't worry too much. I called the bank (Thanks Mom) right away.

FYI: this is not the first time something was stolen from me. I actually have my other license from when my wallet was swiped last year. One less thing to recover.

I feel better now that I just laid it all out. If I have done you wrong, annoyed you, pissed you off, or in general just made you indifferent....I am sorry.

I am going to post this and then listen to Savin me again.

Next Food Network Star

I am so happy I could do a backflip. That is if I actually knew how to do one. I have certain shows that I go out of my way to watch.

Top Chef, and The Next Food Network Star(A-hem...Guy Fieri...I am a huge fan.) are in my top ten. Top Chef Masters starts this Wednesday 9:00est, and The Next food Network Star started tonight. I worked tonight so I had to wait for it to run again on Pacific time.

What a crew they have this season. I already picked my top five favorites, and one of them was on personality alone. My Fav five: Brett, Jamika, Jeff, Mellissa, and Michael.

Underdog Fav is Debbie...Poor form sweetheart. I have faith in you though.

And the judges are: Bobby Flay, Bob Tuschman, and Susie Fogelson.

No faking it Ladies and Gentlemen, or Bobby said he'd call you on it. Woo hoo...Go Bobby Flay!

I'm not going to spoil it for those of you that either haven't seen the show before, or didn't realize it started already.

I now need to get my Top Chef fix on Wednesday night and I am good to go for the summer.

For more information go to The Next Food Network Star

I made it through today. Actually, I don't feel that bad at all. I'm a bit sore, but I usually am on weekends. I am losing my voice. That should be interesting for tomorrow. Maybe it will restore while I sleep. Or maybe not. I kinda like the way it sounds right now. I should do my VM on my cell for fun.

Why signs? I went to look something up that caught my eye at work, and of course I didn't narrow the search down. Up pops all this fun stuff that did not require any use of my depleting brain cells. The song, however, was going through my head while I was browsing.

Sweet dreams all!

Friday, June 5, 2009

Tee hee!

OK. I know not everybody shares the same sense humor. I find myself laughing my butt off at things that others find trivial, gross, or just plain stupid. Here is one of my I-think-it's-funny cartoon snippets. The promo to a cartoon that I think is hysterical.

OK. I'm taking the nighttime gel-caps now so I can sleep cough free. Sweet dreams everyone!

I called in.

I woke up feeling horrible. My body hurts. My nose & eyes are dripping. I am dizzy and now starting a fever. I am eating soup for breakfast taking some Motrin and then crawling back into bed. I called in. I couldn't bring this whatever I have to work. I just hope that I feel better by tomorrow. Bleh!

Shame on you.

I have to get this off my chest before I start spewing my germs to all corners of my room because of one whiny twit. (No it's not me, although I should get a ta-da upside my head for posting this.)

I love coming home to relax. You know...read blogs, update, laugh my bum off at some of my silly blogger friends/peeps. (I actually do get some work done in between. Eek!)

I have a problem with and of course I am not stating whom, bashing the lowly likes of my minimum wage brethren.

Stop and think you silly person. The one you just dissed is probably wondering whether or not the house that they live in is going to be taken from them. Do they have children? What circumstance's put them in the situation they are in right now?

If you are having a bad day that's fine and dandy. Blame what's not right on poor choices. I know I have made many. I am the only one to blame. Do not, however, pawn off your misgivings on the unknowing hardworking folks that serve the public.

There! I am done ranting. My apologies are only to those of you who are also hard working individuals that deserve respect. This also includes my hard studying buddies that are going to make great things happen soon!

FYI...no I have not tried that Garlic Hot Toddy thing. I am quite sure my fever has something to do with my temper though.

Shame on me for posting this, and Kudos for having the balls to do so.

Thursday, June 4, 2009

Just great.

I have a cold. I tried my best to avoid this, but it happened anyway. Dang germs! I work with the public for both jobs, and Z-man is in Pre-K so who knows where I picked this up.

I was fine all day yesterday, and last night too. That is until I woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, and I thought I had a bloody nose. Liquid just came pouring out of my head. Gross! I ran for the bathroom, but of course it was a false alarm. Great...Just great. I knew what was happening. This is a repeat from a few months ago.

I should have seen this coming too. I was definitely feeling unlike myself these past few days. Overly sensitive, irritable, exhausted, and I thought my "friend" was coming to visit early. Ha!

So now I get to go to work tomorrow where everyone will probably freak out thinking I have the pig flu. I should just call in, but that's so unfair. I am not dying. Read the back of a DayQuil bottle and you can see my list of symptoms.

Temporarily relieves common cold and flu symptoms:
~Nasal congestion
~Cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation
~Sore throat
~Minor aches and pains

I wish I could just poof this away. I could probably try my friends homemade remedy, but it involves a lot of raw garlic, rum, tea, and honey. Yeah. I know yuck. I'd end up going to work sick, hungover, AND smelling like I was warding off Vampires. She swears by it though. I guess I better head to the store before work for DayQuil Capsules before I start my day tomorrow. Wish me luck.

I am off to read your blogs now. Sweet dreams all.


Smile...Laugh...Giggle...Blush...Spew liquid from your nostrils after hearing a good joke.

Here is one from a little girl two days ago:

Girl & little sister: Knock Knock...?

Me: Who's there?

Girl & little sister: Iva.

Me: Iva who?

Girls giggling: Iva been working on the rail road!

Tooo cute!

WWQ: Wild Weird & Quacky

I love all things silly. I had a rough day yesterday and as I read my posts today I cringed. I had a very obnoxious defensive tone. I apologize for poor form.

Um. Wait! I take it back. I don't feel sorry one bit. I am tired of using that stupid word. Why should I say I am sorry if I didn't do anything wrong. Either you will continue to read or you'll click to your next blog. I am not offended. Go if you must.

If you are still reading my blog I warn you that I am about to get my silly on.

Mind you my version of silly, and the actual definition of silly differ. I don't care really.

Would you rather...

Have Parmesan Cheese dandruff Or Bubble wrap acne?

I'll go with the Cheese dandruff. If my friends need me on Prince Spaghetti day I am there. Yo Anthony!!!!!

Would you rather...

Appear as Wolf Blitzer in the mirror Or have the voice in your head sound like Tommy Chong?

Oh so that's who has been writing these weird a$$ posts. Thanks Tommy. "Dave? Dave's not here."

Would you rather...

Have Slinkys for arms Or Silly Putty for skin?

Either way I am Screwed. Uh...Slinky. Go Slinky Dog from Toy Story!

~~~And now for the Twisted folks...~~~

Would ya rather...

Have a butt full of worms Or a mouthful of ticks?

The choices amuse me...lol..hmmm I'll go with a mouthful of ticks in the hope that I can chew the crap out of them before they can latch on to me. Ha. Meet my stomach Acid bloodsucker!

Chew a piece of toenail off a dirty man's foot Or thoroughly lick his unshowered armpit?

I am chewing a piece of nail(key word piece not whole). Gross. No way I am licking an armpit.

Always pick your nose immediately before shaking hands Or constantly have one hand, including your wrist, down your pants?

Oh how disgustingly sick I went. Hmmm. I'd pick my nose. Hopefully it would be someone who I really like to dislike. Go ahead. Say it. Ewwww. Sicko!

A bit more of me just for you.

I thought I'd let you know a bit more about me other than what you have read so far.

You now know I have two beautiful boys. Oops. Ahem...One grown son Aaron aka "Double A" is 16, but still my baby, and Zachary aka "Z-man" is turning 4 years old on the 14th of June.

I live with my parents. Yes. I live in the basement apartment of Mom and Dad's house. If you read my profile you know that I've been trying to walk again. Not just creatively, but in actuality. My temporary stay turned long term. I am very grateful that I have them in my life. Not many can say that they are bff with their Mom. I can. Dad. Well he is Dad and I love him. Would I go to him for advice on my love life (which by the way is non-existent)NO!

I have two brothers. Both married with many children. I love my nieces & nephews.

I am a USAF veteran. I also have gone to college, but could not make up my mind so I now have 60+ credits in limbo waiting for me to do something!

I have been married and divorced due to poor judgment on my part. I seriously thought I loved him. I said I'd marry one time and that was it. (that's where the crazy cat lady thing came from).

I have theatrical background ranging from sweeping the floors to on-stage. Ask and I'll tell.

I can cook my bum off. Also something that if you ask I will share. A few of you have had the offer put out there. And thank you to A day in the life for posting the enchilada recipe faster than my mousy friend Speedy Gonzales.

I love my family and friends. Yes I know that some people say friends and family. Sorry but I, Lyn, aka Ducky, Mommy, Aunt Ninny, Sis, Daughter, and then friends. I would not be who I am today without the love and support of my family.

Respect the Tired...

We have all been there at one point. What I mean is the: I am so tired I can't keep my eyes open. I am good for the "I am soooo tired" after working both jobs. Each of us have our different reasons why we become that way, and I wish that I were more like some of you out there.

LivingDeadNursesPsychoWard blog reminds me that I should hush up on my petty complaints on how tired I am. I mean...Hello. I can't remember the last time I was so tired I didn't want to eat. Keep up the good work LDN!
