Kryptonite


I took a walk around
the world to

Ease my troubled mind
I left my body laying somewhere
In the sands of time




Funny how these song lyrics sound so much like me. Traveling from blog to blog I go around the world. Sometimes I get stuck in this country or that.


Sometimes my mind gets stuck in a times. I've been wanting to watch Elvis movies. I saw Elvis in concert when I was nine years old. Every now and then I feel the need to watch him and listen to him sing.

I watched the world float to the
Dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something
To do with you

Wednesday night a police helicopter hovered over the top of my house. Police cars where just next door with there lights on. Then two news vans showed up. I was in my house just shaking.

But your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times I
Never let you down

Today I think I messed up everything I touched. I riped my brand new pants on a knob on the front of my desk. I spilled some really nasty stuff on me and the floor that I had just got done moping.

Kryptonite

Inspiration for the Day

"The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings."
Joyce Kilmer, Spring

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth,
so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind.
To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again.
To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over
the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

- Henry David Thoreau


Drag your thoughts away
from your troubles...
by the ears, by the heels,
or any other way you can manage it.
- Mark Twain

Start Blowing

Yes you heard me right, start blowing. With Easter right around the corner you need to blow out the yokes from the eggs to make yourself a Easter Tree. So you ask what do you do with the inners? How about a Ham and Asparagus Quiche. Yum Yum

When I lived in Jasper, Indiana I took on the tradition of Good Friday is for friends. When you really think about it, it makes sense. A bunch of us would get together and truly enjoy each others company. This was a Blue Jeans and T-shirt affair. No fancy food but a lot of food. Kids run through the house and card games going on. It was relaxing fun. This year I'm having that at my house once again. I'm looking forward to it. I really want to recommend this to you all.

Simply Successful Secrets

There is a experiment going on that is called the Simply Successful Secrets. I was tagged by the wonderful Andrew of "I Capture A Blog" Andrew looks like my brother so every time I see his picture I get a smile.

At first I was stunned that anyone would care what I thought but I'm very honored to be thought of. Most days I think of myself more as a mess then a Success but everyday I get up to fight the good fight. So here goes.

-*-*-*-*-*-*-

*Your Signature---My Dad told me once that everything you touch and do with your life you place your signature on. Don't do anything you wouldn't want your name on. My add to that would be, make your signature count.

*Be Silent---I wanted everything and I wanted it now. That's what my Grandmother always said about me. I had to learn to be silent and just let it come. When you force things there are always huge mistakes.

*Evaluate---Yes you need to act like Dr. Phil and ask yourself "Hows that working for you?" Be honest with yourself when you answer too.

*Celebrate---Everyday is a gift. Enjoy that gift and share it with others. Don't be a stick in the mud.

*Get Dirty---You can't ask other to do something that your not willing to roll up your sleeves and do yourself.

These habits now are very much part of my being as is checking my email. In the beginning I had to work at it. Figuring out each of these steps helped me to better understand myself.

Now for the fun part! I've decided to tag 2 men and 2 women. If they are willing I hope they will share what they do to be successful.

It's a Tree, It's a Towel

I love weird new things. A towel made out of Bamboo is truly a weird thing. They hit upon Bamboo because it was easy to use and fast growing. A Japanese company makes Bamboo t-shirts. I wonder how long it will be till they make jeans. I had to share this because I think it's very interesting.

Rain


Hope everyone is doing Great. It's slowly raining here which might sound gloomy but it's that rain that helps my plants grew. Perfect day to fall into a good story from a book. I wish I had one right now.

It's time for spring cleaning. Time to clean it up, paint it or throw it out. I have a few projects I've been putting off and this year I need to deal with them. One project is redoing two chairs I got for nothing. Not a hard project but I need to have a leg remade. Also I need to find the perfect something for my fireplace.

Are you in Spring mode too? Feeling the need to add some new music to your life. Well go check your music collection with the Definitive 200 List. I was really surprised what made the list. It also reminded me of a few Albums I haven't thought about in awhile. Enjoy!

Row, Row,Row Your Boat....

Most days hip waders will work. After seeing that You Tube will be the latest tool used to gain the White House, I truly believe we all need row boats. Jurassic Park is sounding more inviting all the time.

I'm finally feeling better but Wired couldn't have that. They felt the great need to tell me what the ingredients in many of the lotions I have will really do, like clean tile and dissolve rust. So if you call my house and are told that I'm in the Little Shop of Horror you'll know I'm in the bathroom.

Life has many challenges but I am thankful I can still say

Freedom and Democracy

As I write those two words I have no worries of what might happen to me or those that I love.

Strut

She’s totally committed
To major independence
But she’s a lady through and through
She gives them quite a battle
All that they can handle
Shell bruise some
Shell hurt some too
But oh they love to watch her strut
Oh they do respect her but
They love to watch her strut

I guess today I’m questioning the lessons I taught to a daughter that I didn’t realize was watching as her mother went off to work. Maybe I should be thankful she only saw the preparation before the big sell out and not the act all the way to finality. Did I work what I had to get thousands from men, yes I did. I did it for my family. I tossed up the hair, put on the short shirt and walked my heels to the money. I was very good at it. I played the game.

My favorite times were when I was just the hook up person. Men with the money had a problem I introduced them to the solution. I would be at the meeting sitting on someone’s desk. Just because I crossed my legs at the right moment money would change hands.

Oh but I wasn’t beautiful. I was just daring. I remember sitting under a shade tree with a millionaire and him saying “Don’t work me kid.” I told him “This is my chance. I’m not going to let it slip away.” We laughed and worked out a deal. If I remember right he got some awards for what I helped put together.

Pretty woman, give your smile to me

Many men are happy with just a smile but there are others that wish to step outside the bounties of the game. “You owe me!” Let me laugh at those words a bit. My reply would be “Brother if you feel that is so then you were playing in a game you didn’t belong in.” The Money is always the prize not the female.

Even now I play the game with my husband from time to time. I let him get the prize. I remember a night going out to hear a band when my husband got dared to wear his leather pants. I wore my leather coat, a sports dress and very high heels. The heels told him he was going to be played and the silly boy tried to resist. So at the bar I took off the leather coat and hit the dance floor. Three dances later I was being planted up against the garage wall back at home hoping the door would come down faster. Don’t worry male humans my husband knows how to play the game back at me. At a whole table of Christmas partiers he announced what I had on under my dress and what he planned to do about it. The blush wine I held in my hand matched my face. Bluff called.

There is nothing wrong with the game as long as you’re old enough to understand what the rules are. You can’t allow fantasy to cloud your thinking. Pretty Woman was a movie about a Prostitute not the girl next door.

Am I dying?

Ok I'm sick but everyone is being way to nice to me. You all know something that I don't?

Nows when Walker would normally tell me I'm a Silly Kid! But he can't do that! Maple Leaf Boy went and got himself tagged by a Car! A car that didn't stop too. Not good. So go give him a hug, love, well wishes, lots of healing power and maybe some better luck.

Get Well Soon

1$ Billion

I'm so glad I'm not getting sue for one billion dollars. However the Viacom vs YouTube case does interest me. CNN has a Quick Poll going right now and 51% of the people polled believe YouTube shouldn't be labile. Interesting, very interesting. I'm just hoping this doesn't turn around and bite some in their Blogging behinds. Stranger things have been known to happen.

Mr Besilly thank you for thinking of me and the flowers were lovely!

Old, Grumpy, and Bitchy


Old Grumpy and Bitchy is how I'm describing myself today. My mother would not approve of such talk. Let me see if I can do better to describe myself today. Sick, I'm freaking sick and I hate it. I'd like to smack something but I couldn't whip my way out of a wet paper bag today.

However I read a post this morning that made me think of a phrase that might make me find the strength to whip my way out of the paper bag and through a rude human. You want to hear the phrase? "I don't speak baby!" To people that use this phrase your not cute when you say it. Your rude to the child and to their parents. If you can't find it within yourself to speak with politeness to the smallest of humans why should you be allowed to speak to the older human community. Most of the time it's women that I've heard using this phrase which angers me even more. If you feel the need to pick on someone try someone your own size. If your too afraid to do that keep your damn mouth shut.

Give Me the Dirt

Simple things in life make me very happy.
I'm loving this!


Another beautiful day and I've been busy digging in the dirt. These planters will be on my patio bar for everyone to enjoy. I cracked the whip on my son and made him mow the backyard. He hates doing it but when its done he likes the final result. I'm so juiced right now I think I'll go buy more plants.

SXSW Share

If your here in Austin for SXSW some things I'd like to pass on.

The Copa Bar & Grill is not a bad place for Mexican food. Also if you feel the need to Tango or Salsa dance you can do that there too. My husband likes the waitress's

If you have small kids with you try RadiJazz Playnasium. This place is a little kids dream. Trinity gives it the thumbs up.

If you wake up in the morning and feel the needed to climb something, jump in a car and head to Enchanted Rock. If your here and you have time it's worth checking out the big ball of Granite.

Check out the 6th street Artist Market.

The Power of Trinity blog is having a SXSW Party!
But it will be held in my back yard.
Sasha can't wait to sign autographs
Trinity will be speaking about how to throw sand out the sandbox properly
What will I be doing?
Drinking a beer, what else!

It's a Beautiful Day.....


Wow it's super nice here in Austin this morning. The town is getting ready for


SXSW is a big party celebrating Music, Movies, and the IT business. You buy a ticket and go from party to party to party. The Blogger Dashboard is listing their party at Club De Ville Sunday. BlogHer will be at Freddie's Place Friday.The party that gives me a question marks is the PayPal party. I wonder if they will be handing out money because there are freebies at most of these parties. My husband is heading to the Microsoft happy hour hoping to score a full version of Web Expressions.

Now my feeling are a little hurt that I wasn't one of the hand picked Bloggers asked to speak at SXSW. I could have spoke about nudist, dummies getting bust for weed and my thoughts on the state of the union. LOL

For those that read my silly stories,
I hope to have the next installment up sometime today !

I've Been Drugged

If you want to torture someone give them Allergy Medication. I took some allergy pills before I went to bed last night. I woke up Queen of the Fogland Zombies. I want a Paintball gun so I can shot things that bother me today. LOL I could have some serious fun with that. My poor Husband would be multi colored.

I have no clue how I got that video on here. There were tears, foul words and then I picked blogger beta.

Can't one of you all write my post for me today. Just say something stupid that only makes a little sense. Use bad grammar. Find a picture. I like pictures. Then email it to me. I'll post it. Come on help the Fog Queen out. Please!

Cheeky!

I wish I could say "Cheeky" like Eddie Izzard. He uses that word with precision.

I recently started reading two blogs and I think the word "Cheeky" fits the writers well. But different reasons for both.

First up John from Finding the Money. He's a stay at home Dad so I already love him and his advise about blogging is sound. His recent post "How to make readers void your blog like the plague" should give you some good insight. Let's just say it answered a few of my questions. If your going to do something it should be worth doing it well. Give John's blog a read and learn a few new tips to help you blog along.

Next up Beaman from Beaman's World. He's a cat person so I already love him. English boy can write and he has a wit that I like. His recent post "Sexual Desire" makes me want to give him a good smack on the ass. Bad Boy! Oh but in a nice way. If you have cats read his post "House Rules".

Well I just broke one of the rules by giving out links to other blogs instead of writing something Cheeky myself. I don't care. There was a blog I never shared with anyone because I sometimes stoled ideas from there. Ok to tell the truth I stole all the weed story from there. Dude stopped blogging a month ago. Now I feel bad. So my new rule is, if I like then I should share it. If I lose readers then I wasn't that damn good in the first place.

Hey Trinity is not feeling good so everyone
think Happy thought for her.

Nudist Update!

So my Mother-in-Law calls last night like she does every Thursday night. I tell my husband that I need to talk to her. I need to tell you that my mother-in-law is a southern lady with the accent and the whole works. Growing up around a mix of Dutchie English and Hick , I've always gotten a kick out of listening to her speak. My sons do a great imitation of her saying "Hi".

So I get the phone and say "So what's up with the Nudist? Inquiring minds want to know."

MIL: You laugh but it's not funny. Well when I got home I hide out hoping he wouldn't knock on my door. He left me a message on the phone saying he was having trouble with the back door lock. I also got calls from other people in the neighborhood. Lori the people next door came home pulled into their driveway just to see his silly ass walking up the street to the house "NUDE!"

Me: Well my readers want you to get pictures. Oh one offered to help you with that problem.

MIL: Your so bad. So I fixed his lock when I knew he wasn't at home. The other night there was a knock on the door so I went to go see who it was. It was a neighbor and I told him to hang on I need to get a little more clothes on. He said that's what he wanted to talk to me about. I said so you've met the new guy. I told him not to worry I'd handle it.

Me: So did you handle it?

MIL: NO!! (she knows me) Yes, I called him and said in his apartment he could do as he pleased but out in public places around the house he needed to have his clothes on. I told him I'd had some complaints and it would just be best for all.

We went on to talking more. She asked me if I knew of any Nudist colonies. No! I asked her why was she planning on joining one. I should find one on-line and have them send her information in the mail. LOL

I figure this guy is going to get arrested for public indecency. Maybe I should start a betting pool to see who can pick the date. LOL

Saying Goodbye.....

It's not the sound,
Or the revealing of the story,
But the dark water,
At the bottom,
Foretelling of the breath,
In truth we find release.


I've been punched in the face before. I don't state this to be boastful but to make a point. Being cut down with words from a long time friend is more painful. This is my husbands plight right now. If I could take it for him I would but I can't. Doesn't make me less angry. The person that has cut my husband was his best friend for many years.

My Mom always says "Misery loves Company". That statement sums up my husbands old friend. He's miserable and he wants my husband as his company. As his bitch or as his comment would lead you to believe. I so wish this person read my blog. I have a few words for him.

Yes my husband might be a bitch
your just mad because he ain't your bitch

Sorry just needed to let off a little stream. I don't like 2 faced people very well.
