happy thanksgiving

thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I have lots of happy family memories.I have an uncle who friggin loves turkey. one year when my aunt and uncle were living close to us and joining us for thanksgiving,we called over to their house and told him that the turkey had fallen on the floor and was ruined. we went on to tell him that we had to throw it away. about ten minutes later he beelined into our kitchen and began to dig through the trash to see if he could salvage any of the ruined turkey. this uncle is also a turkey snob. he thinks only butterball turkeys are fit to be eaten. we tricked him by feeding him a publix brand turkey that he raved about until we told him that it wasn't a butterball. he accused us of feeding him a hall brothers turkey.hall brothers was a five and dime store in pennsylvania where they grew up.
I don't just love thanksgiving for the jokes we have shared. I love it because we all got together and enjoyed each others company and shared love and happiness.I miss that. now we have our own small thanksgiving with only a little family. most years thanksgiving happens at the hospital where I work and that's ok. I am thankful for my job so it's not so bad.
this post is kind of mushy and not my usual weird ass sense of humor but I just wanted to send out my thankful vibe for my family and friends and even my job. it feels good to let that out into the ether.

zombie nazis are the worst kinds of nazis

so today I watched a zombie movie called Dod Sno (Dead Snow). it's about norwegian med students and nazi zombies. I know how it sounds but it was actually pretty scared me because these damn zombies could run and had some sort of intelligence. I have this weird paranoia about zombies that developed after I read World War Z. now with every outbreak I think oh no!it's happening! anyway, so I watch this movie and think I have the dvd case hidden but some how maddy finds it and says nazis!zombie nazis!oh no!mommy those are the worst kinds of nazis. it was so funny. her super serious voice and big wide brown eyes. she was convinced that the movie was a documentary.
all in all it was a cool movie if you dig zombies. just don't let your over dramatic kid find the dvd case.

the freakin grinch

yes I am the grinch.the one, the only, stealin the last can of who hash grinch. I went shopping today and immediately was overcome with grinchy feelings. the music, the decorations, everything just did it to me. I don't know why. hormones?possible. medication not working? maybe. overwhelming life questioning funk? wait stop right there. that's it. it all stems back from this screwing I am getting from UF. that just triggers the whole my life is a big joke I'm a big fuck up spiral. sigh. not even AR can swing me out of this one right now.

her excellency the mayor

okay I couldn't find any other mayors except the mayor of the city of townsville and I laughed harder at this. if my friend cori can be the hamburglar then I can be mayor mc cheese.
anyway, I'm the mayor of sucktown more accurately. I had a horrendous day at UF that kicked me in the proverbial nads. I was so upset that to keep from crying in front of the rat bastard advisor in CLAS that I told him that he was basically telling me that I had a better chance of crapping a pot of gold. yeah, I said it. my fantastic plan of trying to change my major to history might just be that.fantastic as in a fantasy. I was told that this just wasn't going to happen due to my hours and it didn't matter that I had a physical condition and a doctors note that said that I can't complete my major and I need to change. yeah he said that a physical disability wasn't a good enough reason for an exception. I seriously almost cried. I'm still not over the disappointment and I'm pissed that I have to fight. I can't believe that I am pissed that I have to fight because I love a fight for injustice. I think what pissed me off was the attitude of the douchebag advisor that I met with. he was the poster child of a prick with an iota of power. he had absolutely no intention of being helpful. he didn't even tell me HOW to appeal. he only told me that it wasn't going to happen.
now that I am over my depression, I am ready to fight. and to quote my yummy Al Gore, " instead of science, I'm going with crazy" oh man did he look like a big steamin dish of yum last night on snl.

Update: Al Gore

me and my big ideas

don't laugh but I seriously wish I could join a roller derby league. yeah, I know. those who know me are probably saying you get hurt just walking but I have never hurt myself on quad skates. and I have always loved derby. I used to watch roller games on tv as a tween. a friend of mine from high school derbies and I am soooo envious. MAN. also, this would be a great way to get out some of my frustrations in a safe way. well, as safe as possible.
so, if you see me posting pics of me were forewarned.

yay vampires

vampires forever.or at least until my manuscript is published.LOL. no really forever. I just wanted to say that to all who fail to appreciate the awesomeness of vampires. vampires are the only monsters that scare you but don't make you look away in fear. in fact, your drawn to them. sigh. the mythology of these creatures is so varied and fascinating. you can even put your own spin on them to create your own piece of mythology. sigh.

no mr bond, I plan to KILL you

I laugh at the most ridiculous things.take for instance the above picture. I laughed out loud when I saw this. I still think it's funny. my sense of humor is reflected in the pics I put up here. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. either way, it's a fact. I've already talked about how I laugh at inappropriate times. I'm not worried about my sense of humor, I just think it's unusual. It's like a 4th grade boy meets and intellectual. maybe it has something to do with my love of things nerdy. I do love some nerds and nerdiness. the nerds bring me to my knees. yes some people respond to the cool or brain dead pretty boys but the bright boys rock! a show like The Universe is filled with awesomeness! they can't be total poindexters though.(felix the cat reference) they have to have some crumb of cool or slick in them. the evil genius type. there is an episode of The Simpsons(one of my faves) where Homer gets a job in another town. He is employed by the mysterious Scorpio, voiced by Albert Brooks. Scorpio is an evil genius. probably a nerd grown up and made good. see? never rule out the nerds.all they need to do is realize the one cardinal rule of world domination. NEVER tell anyone your plan before you carry it out.

looking to saddle up

I am currently on the lookout for a haflinger pony for Maddy. Haffies are so sweet and bombproof.I know this is the perfect first mount for her. we are joining the pony club at the oaks so she can learn how to ride and care for a horse the proper way. even though I learned through the get on and hang on method, I don't want her to learn that way. actually I don't think her personality type would allow her to learn that way. she is much too much like her father and very thorough and analytical. thank God. anyway, if anyone knows of a haffie for sale let me know. I don't want a super hunter or dressage trained pony. I want a kid trail ride pony.Although, if the price is reasonable I would consider a hunter.

requires supervision

so I am working on my manuscript without the supervision of super editor. it's like riding a bike without training wheels. I think I have just about accomplished everything on her checkedy check list. I seem to have saved the hardest part for last. trying to explain why my MC loves another character. I'm stuck and my response to her of well he just does didn't fly well with her. she then told me that it wasn't believable because we didn't know very much about her. like in life, sometimes it's hard to pin down why we love who we love. we just know we do. I think that is what my MC feels. instead of fleshing out why they love each other the way they do, I have added more stuff unrelated to that. so much for writing without the supervision. let's face it, sometimes I just need hand holding.

squeee!look what I found!

so while surfing for random information that I needed, I came across this little gem. I Vampire comics. I LOVED this comic when I was a teen. it was awesome. but I somehow lost my copies as I moved around and grew older. then, when I asked my comic book nerd/experts about it, they all looked at me like I was nuts. what gives? then through the magic of technology, I found it again. I knew I wasn't crazy. every time I asked about vampire comics everyone pointed me toward Vampirella. not that Vampy isn't awesome but I wanted my dear Andrew Bennett. this has been a guilty pleasure purchase for me that I plan on coveting. I can't help it. I love nerds, evil geniuses, Alan Rickman and vampires. funny...they all seem related.

winner and still champion

I am still the prettiest girl in court. today's victory was by a landslide. pretty much I'll take an ego boost any way I can get it. LOL. saw the mystery cute SA again. found out that his name is John.not that he told me but because his name was written in sharpie on on the crate of case files he was lugging. so I stared semi longingly at him while I waited my turn to be called. fortunately all my court adventures are over. or at least I hope they are. by these postings I sound like a one woman crime wave. funny thing is I know the judge and he always looks at me like you crazy girl, why are you in my court room. but yay, I am done with court. and no it was nothing felonious or fun. it was something dumb. and not dumb in the looking back it was fun at the time but now it is just dumb.

dude the count is on google today

I noticed that when I accidentally switched from Igoogle to regular. AWESOME!Vamps RULE.
I was watching a really terrific unknown movie and decided to talk about it. it's called The Night of the White Pants with Tom Wilkinson(sigh). this is a great movie about learning to see what is important in life no matter how old you are. check it out if you haven't. another fab movie with him is The Governess.
let's face it I just love independent and under the radar movies. they are gems that I watch over and over. one of my all time favorites is The Search for John Gissing. this movie is so small I don't think it was ever released in the theaters. I only found it on Netflix while searching for movies with Alan Rickman for my film fest. Mike Binder and Janeanne Garofalo are amazing!!this film is funny slick and so underappreciated. I about peed my pants with the nun scenes.if you have google alerts Mike Binder...I heart your movie!

Alan Rickman fixes everything

so I registered for my spring classes as a history major and a theatre minor. it should be okay. but I have a book list of like 12 books. that's a big difference from what I'm used to. at least they are cool. I'm really hoping that changing to history, which is more pedestrian will help with my left arm situation. I seriously don;t know what I am going to do. it now hurts all the time and makes me feel old and cranky.
I'm cheered by watching my dream awesome man AR in Die Hard. I hate that he dies in it but he is one slick mo fo in it. Yum. when in doubt, Alan Rickman fixes EVERYTHING.

the manifesto and me

the chalkboard manifesto is awesome. check it out if you don't believe me. funny stuff. but then again, I love any kind of manifesto. I think I need to write one of my own. the word itself has a renegade kind of connotation that I just love. not in the unabomber way, though. I think he had a manifesto. I know he had a big bunch of crazy letters that he called a manifesto. I don't want a crazy manifesto. no one will take me seriously. oh wait... they already don't.LOL.

even with the time change I have no time

hahahahaha!I just tried to register for my classes on the wrong day. maybe that is a clue that I am too old to go to school. anyway, I have had some truly awesome ideas for my manuscript over the past week. I just need the time to write it. right now I am drowning in a ocean of boxes that need to be unpacked and the stuff arranged. moving is like my least favorite event. I've moved twice in a year. I feel like a friggin bedouin.
