no such details will spoil my plans. that is the kind of girl i am.


i'm sitting here with my iPod surfing ebay like i do many other nights. guess what i happened upon. this!!

amanda palmer's blue volvo driving by. AND on top of that, what comes on my iPod other than THE JEEP SONG. anybody else here a dresden dolls fan besides me??? if not, you're out of luck. but i will give you this:

the jeep song

i've been driving around town
with my head spinning around
everywhere i look i see
your '96 jeep cherokee

you're a bully and a clown
you made me cry and put me down
after all that ive been through
you'd think i'd hate the sight of you

but with every jeep i see
my broken heart still skips a beat
i guess its just my stupid luck
that all of boston drives that same black fucking truck

it could be him or am i tripping
and i'm crashing into everything
and thinking about skipping town a while
until these cars go out of style...

i try to see it in reverse
it makes the situation hundreds of times worse
when i wonder if it makes you want to cry
every time you see a light blue volvo driving by

so dont tell me that you're off to see the world
i know you wont get very far
dont call me if you get another girl baby
just call me if you get another car

the number of them is insane
every exit's an exboyfriend memory lane
every major street's a minor heart attack
i see a red jeep and i want to paint it black

it could be him or am i tripping
and i'm crashing into everything
i can't wait til you trade that fucker in
by then they will have stuck me in the looney bin

it could be him my heart is pounding
its just no use i'm surrounded
but someday i'll steal your car and switch the gears
and drive that cherokee straight off this trail of tears

freaking, freaking AWESOME. this was just to weird of a coincidence of me to pass up.

In Dire Need Of An Optimism Fairy

i had a car wreck on my way to work *almost* a month ago and am now permanently disfigured. i have nearly a 2 inch purple scabby on my left elbow that i believe will be there the rest of my life. oh, its horrible. got hit by a car and had the drivers side of my car crushed in. believe it or not, it was actually pretty painful. yeek. i got to ride in an ambulance for the first time. WOOHOO. as it turns out, i curse ALOT more than i thought i did. and the little guys who ride in the ambulance with you laughed at me and my sailor's tongue the whole way to the hospital where the doctor proceeded to scoff at my injuries and then sent me home with a small pill bottle of magic beans.

after that, i got a rental car until that next weekend when i bought my new (slightly used) 2006 silvery blue chevy cobalt. beautiful, stylish, and running. 8 days later, my engine ran hot and blew up. i was able to coast into a gas station just before getting robbed by a small black man pretending to be a mechanic, which i actually didnt even realize until an hour later.

after THAT, i called the place i got my car from and they gave me a loaner car because this was so weird. so, a few days later, that car lost power going down the interstate and i broke down, again.

so, now i'm in the second loaner car from the dealership, my fifth car of the month, that i cannot drive over 55 in because it shakes so violently i'm afraid it's gonna throw me out the window.

and you??

Happy Easter To Me

HELLO, EVERYBODY!!! THIS IS RUPERT!! my new pup. we went to my parent's house today for easter dinner. while we were out playing with the kids and all the dogs, this little pup wandered up into the yard. skinny and scabby. i took him home rather than let my dad shoot him after all the kids left.

so, tomorrow morning we get to go to the vet and have all his shots done and take a look at the weird skin condition he's got going on. i'll share more of that later on after i find out what all he's got going on.

wish us luck!! :)

It's Like 10,000 Spoons When All You Need Is A Knife

This guy comes in from work,
slams the door, throws all his stuff
and falls into his chair.

He yells for his wife and she comes

runing to see what's wrong.

Staring straight ahead, he says
"go get me a beer before it starts."

"Okay?" so, she runs to the kitchen and gets him a beer.

After finishing that one, he says again
"go and get me a beer before
it starts"
She raises an eyebrow but again she goes and
gets him another beer.

After drinking that one, he yet again says,
"go and get me another
beer before it starts."

By this time, she'd had enough.
"before what starts?? I realize

you'vebeen working all day but I've been here all day mopping the floors,
washing the dishes, doing the laundry... "

He sighs... "ah, hell, nevermind, its already started..."

There's A Bee In My Hair; I Hope He Doesn't Sting Me

Of course, the embracing of friends, of taking them to your heart and into rooms of your psyche where others are forbidden to go, can be dangerous. It requires a faith and trust in them which can be hard to give. However open or private a person may be, there is a step to be taken which involves the disclosure of things which you may not want to disclose. While no-one is an open book, there are still pieces of life which everyone keeps to themself, either embarrassed or ashamed by their deeds, choices and thoughts.

    Those grubby, imperfect jewels are kept tight in a locked box within us, where we are unwilling to put them on display. Which is precisely why we are afraid and disappointed by the betrayal of friends; “I allowed you in, only you, to hold you close, and yet you remained unmoved by this rare privilege, this denuding, and turned to expose me”. Just as you can be betrayed by a kiss, you can be betrayed by a hug.

there's a cinnamon flavored orgasm in my mouth

Monkey Bread!!

Original recipe yield:

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional; not recommended))

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube pan.
  2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters. Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits.
