| I less than 3 bullets.
|I don't really have anything for a full-on meaty post. So, I give you bullets.
- Friday Night Lights--the first season, comes out on DVD this week!!! Only$19.99! I could
drool over watch Coach Taylor and the gang any time I wanted!! I wonder if Bubba took the hint when he looked at the Target ad today. It was circled, arrowed AND starred. I am NOTHING if not subtle.
- Amy Winehouse's hair scares me.
- There is going to be a remake of...of...I don't know if I can even type this...of.."FOOTLOOSE!" That hurt. I REFUSE to watch a remake of Footloose. Why am I just now hearing about this, anyway? Supposedly, the remake is going to star Zac Efron. Look, I love me some High School Musical (one AND two), but Zac Efron will NEVER....NEVAH! replace Kevin Bacon in the role of Ren McCormack!
- I want to take the kids to the zoo. Just not when it is hot. I think I'll wait until the end of September.
- I watched The Last Kiss last night. I like Zach Braff again. I say again like I ever stopped liking him. I guess I was just sort of indifferent toward him. I'm sure he is happy to be back in my good graces.
- I am officially done with summer. Almost the entire week last week, our schools let out early because of heat and many of the schools not having air conditioning. Bring on fall!
- I have been coughing for a week. Please make it stop.
- Twitter is fun.
- I flickr-ed a bunch today. Mostly a bunch of photos of my oldest that were stored elsewhere on the computer and not easily uploaded.
- I want Zameka or Jach to win BB8. Er...Jameka or Zach. I think Amber is gone this week. I can't stand the others. Well, ok, I tolerate Jess. The others, no.
- My sister graduated from nursing school a couple of weeks ago. Now, both my sisters are nurses. I do NOT want to be a nurse no matter how many times my mother tries to convince me that I do/should. Not interested.
- Seriously, if you are not watching Rock of Love on Vh1, you do NOT know what you are missing. Jes is my girl crush these days. Remember when my girl crush was Jordis on Rockstar:INXS? Ha...only my regulars will remember that.
- My feet will never be as soft as I want them to be. COULD be because I prefer to go barefoot.
- I am totally craving junk food. I think the only thing in the kitchen is poptarts. Eh, I could eat a poptart, I guess.
- I think I'm done for now.

| Big Brother is nearly over and this will be my first post about it!
|Alright...I gotta talk about Big Brother. I've held out long enough. Last year, I talked SO dang much about it, I almost (ALMOST) drove myself crazy. It's feast or famine around here, I swear.
First, I have to tell you what I thought after the 1st show. I actually did live blog it, but didn't post. It's kind of funny how things change so quickly. My thoughts from then, pretty much do not reflect my thoughts NOW.
So, here are my initial, gut first impressions as written on the night of the first show this season.
Jessica is a student and a cheerleader. She has an annoying voice and that in and of itself is enough for me to not like her. (kind of like Holly from a few years back.) She is little and cutesy and looks like she will always be "made up." Kind of like Janelle, only annoying. HATE.
Nick is a former pro football player. With what team? Why former? How frickin' HUGE are his shoulders?? Makes his head look teeny tiny. I can't tell for sure, but I may not like him. I'll let you know.
Eric is a talent management assistant. Sounds positively lackey-ish. I didn't get much vibe from him. Reminds me of Rob C from Survivor in some ways.
Daniele is, well, I missed what she does. Not much of an impression yet. She's skinny..very skinny and resembles Anna Nicole Smith.
Dick is a bar manager who looks like Tommy Lee, only not as skinny. He seems...dirty. Like he perpetually needs a shower. I MAY end up hating this guy. I'll let you know.
Jen is a nanny with big boobs. AND? She said "like" about 50 times in a 30 second span. Like, Jen, I, like, can't stand you, like, already.
Mike is a painting contractor. He made NO impression on me whatsoever. *yawn*
Kail is a business owner from Oregon. Why do I know this? Because she said, "I am a multi-business owner" in some way shape or form about 10 times during the one hour show. Ok, Kail, we got it. Any other time, that would make me hate her, but I kind of like her. Problem is, she made a point of bringing her Bible AND? She doesn't care for the gays...well, their lifestyle, I guess. Now all that wouldn't bother me so much, but in the BB house it usually spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E. (thank you, Travis Tritt for helping me spell that word.) Oh, also, Kail is 38. That is positively ANCIENT in BB years, but she has the advantage of being pretty good looking, so maybe she won't be the first to go.
Joe is a loud and obnoxious flamboyantly gay receptionist in a hair salon for kids. This guy was on mah nerves from the first minute. By the end of the show, I was chanting his name wanting him to be the first to go. HATE.
Carol is a student and a senator's daughter. I kinda like her.
Amber is a cocktail waitress and a single mom. She also has very thin eyebrows. Don't know yet if I like her.
Zach is a graphic designer and is a giant. In the "little room" he towers over everything. He also has frightening arched eyebrows. I like him so far.
Dustin is a shoe salesman and is not quite as flamboyant as Joe. Like him.
Jameka is a school counselor. Not much else to say, but I like her.
Hmm...kinda harsh, no? I'm especially proud of all the physical things that I picked on to make me not like some of them. Yeah, I guess I AM shallow when it comes to my reality tv watching.
Ok, so now, wanna know my thoughts after all these weeks have passed? Now, mind you, I have the live feeds. I watch. I read recaps. I read forums. So, I base my now thoughts on all of that. Not just the edited for tv version of the show.
Jessica: She was pretty non-existant on the feeds until after Carol left. She grew on me and I liked her for quite a while. Her relationship with Eric was cute and somewhat endearing. A "flirt-mance" more than anything. HOWEVER, lately, she's been mean and petty when really she hasn't needed to be so she is kinda low on my like list.
Nick: I liked him for the first few days. Then, he attached himself to Daniele and ALL they EVER did was lay in bed and whisper. HATE. Glad he is gone.
Eric: He drove me a little batty at first with his non-stop talking and the way he sounded like Woody Allen. And? The collars! He insisted on always having his collar up and that just drove me to the brink of insanity. He cooled it with the collars for the most part. He was fun to watch as he tried to follow instructions from "America." And, as I said before, he and Jessica were cute. THEN...he aligned himself with Dick. 'Nuff said. He is near the bottom of my like list.
Daniele: I can NOT stand her. The end. P.S She whines constantly. P.P.S. Will someone snatch that dang bandana from her and burn it? Thanks.
Dick: Dirty, vile, foul-mouthed, nasty, sort of misogynistic (toward Jen and Kail, anyway), disgusting...and one who brings out so much hatred in me at every turn that I can barely watch a segment of show with him in it. No other stranger, aside from Constantine on AI, has ever brought out the hate as much as Dick. The names he has called Jen have been way out of line and no matter what Jen has said or done, (which has been nearly nothing)it's nothing compared to the crap spewing from Dick. I call bullsh** on it being all strategy. Can. Not. Stand. Him.
Jen: Girl grew on me. Seriously, I started out REALLY disliking her for no real reason besides the fact that she says "like" all the time. I also kinda thought she was a snob after that whole, "I don't want Dick to touch me thing." HA. I completely agree with her now. I gained much respect for her after watching her take the crap Dick was dishing out with hardly a reaction. You go girl! She's being shunned AGAIN this week, by Dick and the others, for reasons I shall not reveal (unless you ask me to). I still like her and want her to win, but I am pretty sure she is gone this week.
Mike: I didn't really have a reason to dislike him. He just never spoke. It was not even noticeable when he left the house.
Kail: I liked her a lot. Poor thing got the first HOH and that started the ball rolling downhill. Dick picked on her. She TRIED to play the game. She just wasn't very good at it.
Joe: He always grated on my nerves and I was happy when he got evicted. Plus, that whole gonnorrhea thing. Weirdo.
Carol: Carol wasn't there long enough, but I liked her ok. At the time, I liked her better than Jessica.
Amber: You know, I have gone all over the place with Amber. From not liking her to liking her a lot to being pretty much indifferent. Right now, I like her. Yes, she cries. A LOT. Yes, she is pretty much crazy. But she means well. She's one of the top 3 on my like list. Call me crazy.
Zach: I've always liked him. I felt sorry for him when NOBODY would speak to him. He's got a cool goofiness about him that makes me want him for my friend. Sure, he's a floater. Who cares? Whatever helps you through the game, right? I like him. He's in my top 3. I just wish he would NOT align with Evel Dick.
Dustin: I liked Dustin. He played the game hard and pretty well. His one fatal mistake? Offering to be a pawn. NEVER offer yourself as a pawn. I was sad to see him go.
Jameka: She's my favorite. I believe her faith is real and that Dick is a...dick..for trying to pick on her about her Chrisitianity. She's not REAL good at playing the game, but I like her a lot. She's been played a LOT so she's a tad bitter. Who wouldn't be? She's loyal and I like that.
So, there you have it. At this point, I actually wouldn't mind if Jameka, Zach or Amber won. But, you wanna know what will happen??? The final 2 will be Dick and Dani. And Dick will play Wonder Daddy and beg everyone to vote for his precious little girl. Boo hoo and all that jazz. Gag me.
Man, I love this show!

| Seriously, dude. Leave or I will hack on you.
|Saturday, it felt like allergies. Sunday, more of the same, add a little coughing. Monday it was all in my upper chest and I treated the office to my hacking and germs. I'm nice like that.
Last night, I felt like crap with a capital CRAP so I drugged up on Nyquil, excuse me...Nite Time (wal-mart brand)...and slept. Woke up feeling crappier. Called in to work. More Nyquil and went back to bed.
So I get up at 1 something and then Bubba left at 2 and a short time later the doorbell rang. Yeah, NOT gonna answer that. I was in pjs and had some serious bed-head goin' on and was wearing no bra and basically I just didn't feel like it. So, I just sat still and hoped they would leave. Whomever "they" might be. But then came a knock. It was the knock that my parents ALWAYS do. I know you know it. "knock knock, knockknock KNOCK, knock knock. I thought it must be my dad. So, like a fool, I opened the door. (note to self: Always peek through blinds to see if you recognize a vehicle out front.)
There stood some guy in some sort of uniform, ID badge around his neck, binder in hand.
Pleasantries exchanged. Then he says, "Are you the boss here?" I ALMOST looked around to see if I was at work.
Me: "The boss?"
Me: "Depends on who is asking."
He: "Oh, I'm (insert name here) from (insert company name I didn't catch)." And the schpeel begins.
Me: Completely spacing out.
He: "Blah blah...Honeywell...blah blah..How long have you lived here?...blah blah..security...blah blah...fire department...blah blah...doors..blah blah...keychain...wood doors...blah blah...metal doors...
Me: "Not a homeowner." hint hint, dude
He: "Do you mind if I look at your backdoor?"
Me: "That's fine. But I am not interested in what you have to sell."
He: Pause. "Can I ask why?"
Me: "I'm just not."
He: "You're not interested but you don't have a reason."
He: "Well, which of your neighbors would be the best to offer this deal?"
Me: "I don't know."
He: "You've lived here for 10 years but you don't know your neighbors?" (dude was seriously walking on thin ice..getting more sarcastic. I was ready to hack up a mouthful of phlegm and spit it on him. Luckily, there was a screen door between me and him.)
Me: "I know my neighbors but I am NOT sending you to any of their houses on purpose. I am not giving you names."
He: "Ok. Have a good one."
Me: "Thank you." Close and lock door. Run and check back door to make sure it is locked.
Now I wish I had caught his name and the name of the company. I would have called his superiors and tattled on him for being a sarcastic ass. Damn that Nite Time for making my head all fuzzy.

| That not so
|feminine normal itch
|Is it possible to have an extremely mild, yet highly weird, allergic reaction to peanuts if you've never had any kind of reaction before?
I ate a "Payday" (told ya, FAT day)and I swear it is making my eyebrows, forehead, and scalp itch.

| Out! Out! Damn spot!
|Not only am I having a FAT day, I also just realized that I have a spot on my shirt. One that I didn't see at frickin' 4:45am this morning when I put it on.
