Welcome to my Random World

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have fun browsing through things. Im not going to write about anything in particular and I dont promise to be politically correct. Though I sit at a desk and type for work I dont even promise a lack of typos but we can all hope I get that part right...

What I do promise is to just share my life. Interesting or not you will get to read all about it and maybe find something to laugh at or maybe some of my misfortune at times will make you feel better about a bad time you are going through...

What I hope to get out of this is just an account of my life so that when I am 80, gray and maybe finally getting married I wont forget everything that has happened to me.

Im getting forward to reading your comments and thoughts on what I have to say so dont be shy I promise I dont bite, well, not to hard anyway...

Reality TV

Yep I admit it to all of you right here and now... I am a reality TV JUNKIE!

Now I dont get into the Bachelor or even American Idol (unless its the very beginning where all the crazies come out thinking they are the next Whitney Houston) I mean the Reality TV on MTV, VH1 those sorts of shows... Just a small list of what I watch and dont like to admit to include

Shot at Love with Tila Tequila and The Icky Twins
The Real Housewives of Orange County, Atlanta any of them really
Real World
The RW/RR challenges
Brett Michaels needs love
Flava Flav needs love
Charm School
The 2 Coreys
The Hills
The City
and so many more that I cant think of right now

Not only do I watch these shows, some of them more religiously than others, I actually get into the mode of thinking I KNOW these ppl and I talk to them through my tv when they do and say stupid things! I know insane right?

I have a love hate relationship with my feelings for these shows but I work from home and cant work in silence so I have the tv on while I work and I just get SUCKED IN...

Shot at Love with Tila Tequila...
Not a fan of her. Checked her out on myspace and think shes just an internet hooker but I couldnt stop watching the foolishness that was her show for not one season but TWO!

Shot at Love with the Icky Twins...
Basically now since Tila wont do a 3rd season after failing to find love the first two times, they now have a set of hot twins looking for love and guess what? They are both bi... So meet a handful of men and a handful of women to play with, kiss, cuddle and have a good time with from one twin to the other to see who each of the girls falls in love with and in the end hope the 'chosen ones' pick them as well... The final episode was tonight and *shudder* they both pick the same guy! Of course he picks one over the other etc etc but my question is how do you date a guy that you know had his tongue down your sisters throat the last time you saw him? I mean really what genious thought this show was good for the emotional well being of these women and how long is the love going to last?

The Real Housewives of whereever...
If they are going to do a show about the REAL HOUSEWIVES why dont they pick a location where all the women WORK in REAL jobs and have REAL issues? I mean seriously this isnt REAL and doesnt portray America well at all!

Brett Michaels, Flava Flav and any other washed up celeb looking for love...
Seriously guys these women arent here to find love they are there to get their mug on tv and the making out with you is just the price they pay for it. I mean really who in their right mind would fall in love with Flav? He has like 80 kids and wheres a clock around his neck and thinks its fashionable! Yall are washed up move on and look for love closer to home or get used to nights alone because honestly you look foolish especially when you are on the 3rd and 4th installments of your 'lookin for love' extravaganza.

The Two Coreys...
Could Coery Haim be a bigger mess? I mean really I tried to like him I tried to want him and Corey Feldman to make a come back but dude the 'whoa is me' crap and the feel sorry for me for what happened to me when I was young doesnt give you free reign to be a jerk to those that are trying to be there for you NOW! Let go of the past, stop lieing to everyone including yourself, stop with the drugs and things would be MUCH better for you!

The Hills...
First I was a Laguna fan but thats gone and not sure I could love it without the whole Kristin/Stephen/Lauren triangle but the Hills now that is some great tv lol Just going to say Spencer you are a JERK in the worst way and good job making Heidi leave all her friends for your sorry lazy self! I cant wait for another season of this one.

The City...
That Olivia chic is a raging snot but I guess that is what happens in NY right? I hope Whitneys show takes off but the sooner she gets rid of Jay the happier I will be. Whit has always been in my eyes a strong woman and after helping Lauren through all her boy problems over the years you would think she could spot a snake a mile away. Dont trust Jay at all not sure what it is but I know Im right.

I only was watching this cuz Brody is hot and there isnt much else on at the time but I missed it so not sure where it sits. I think its HILARIOUS what these men will do to be buddies with someone else they know nothing about but good goin Brody and Frankie and keep on doin what you do.

RW/RR Challenges...
I want the old school competitors back! I want it to be men vs women and I want the womens team to be STACKED! I want Ruthie, Rachel, Coral, Julie,Veronica and KATIE back and in ACTION and I dont want to see anymore of Diem, CT, Kenny, oh and the blonde kid that is Kennys side kick (I cant remember his name right now)(Oh its Evan ~ thanks for regaining my memore) I want more drama and less stupidity! BRING ON THE CHALLENGES and make them an HOUR not 30 minutes!

Like I said am sure there are more than this but you tell me do you watch any of these shows? What are your opinions and what do you watch when you want to feel a bit better about yourself?

I am blessed...

I have the most amazing little man ever! I know every parent says that most of the time right? Lucky for me its actually true. He is such a trooper at times it amazes me...

See today was a long day and by the time I went to sleep this afternoon I had been up for more than 27 hours straight. Now he didnt really know any of that. He knew I had to go out and see a friend this morning but he didnt put the times together. So instead of like most children who come home from school needing this that and the next thing he told me he was home and instead of keeping on at me to get up (I clearly was darn near comotose) he just proceeded to do his homework, make himself something to eat for dinner and then wait until 7pm to ASK me if I wanted to get up yet. Now of course I feel like an AWFUL parent for having him sort himself and everything out including dinner on his own as this isnt something that happens ever! Im a very hands on mom he cant usually breathe wrong without me knowing about it but today he really showed me that he is growing up and can take care of himself if he needs to.

Why was I up for so many hours you ask? A very dear friend of mine had a major surgery today. I know I know, its a routine one day in and out surgery that lasts an entire 2 hours but it is surgery nonetheless and anything can go wrong. She had her wonderful hubby there for her of course and I didnt HAVE to go but I wanted to be there. What if something didnt go right? What if paperwork got shuffled about and instead of having the procedure she went in for she came out with a third eye or something (Hey I have seen it happen on tv lol) but seriously other than needing to sleep I had no reason to NOT be there not to mention though I wouldnt admit it to her I was nervous for her and her hubby as well so I went. Surgery was meant to be at 6.30 so I thought well I will get little man out the door at 7 for school then get myself there by 7.30 sit with her hubby for an hour and wait take a quick look at her and make sure there wasnt a 3rd eye roaming about and be on my way home no later than 11. RIGHT!! I got there about 8 and was thankful that she hadnt been taken to pre-op yet so that I could see her. (This also made her mom happy as I could give her the card from her parents as well as bless her little melon with some holy water before she went in) Now that being said it didnt hit me til after that ... CRAP this is going to take longer than I had anticipated. Oh well shes worth the lack of sleep right? So she is taken back, her hubby and I go get some breakfast (thanks again for feeding me by the way) Nothing better than some runny eggs over heat lamped bacon and cold french toast but hey I was starving and it filled me up. Then it was all a waiting game. She was in pre op by 8.57am and hit post op at 11.07 talk about GREAT timing. Her doctor came out to tell us she was fine and everything went well gave us some pics to look at of what was done. I could have left but I really still wanted to check for that 3rd eye. So I sat and waited and waited and waited I just knew that the minute I left was going to be when they were going to let us back in but by 12.25 I could no longer stay awake. I knew I had about a 20 min drive ahead of me not to mention the chic in the waiting room with her 4 children under the age of 5 that she had no patience for (thats another blog) and I went home... Of course 20 minutes after I left is when the hubby was able to see her but that is just my luck. She is at home and she is resting and doing fine. I know she is in great hands and I will be seeing her Tuesday afternoon. I did call tonight to get an update from another friend that is staying with her tonight and all day tomorrow and I am glad she is blessed to have so many loving people in her life to help her get through all of this.

Today was just a day I realized that I have GREAT friends and a GREAT son. Dont get me wrong I know this is all fact and I am very thankful for those in my life but on days like today it is just extra special to know that no matter what the world throws at you, you are never alone and those closest to you are going to be there for you in ways you didnt expect. My little man has always been a blessing and I always just hoped that I would raise him to be a wonderful young man and though I know hes a great kid today he showed me he IS turning into that man more and more day after day.

So now you tell me who are you thankful for in your life and what was one of 'those moments' that made you see how thankful you are for what you have?
