Halloween Safety Precautions

Every year at this time I like to give a few Halloween safety tips. I feel like it is my duty to make this public service announcement so that I can hopefully help as many children as possible.

1.) Wear all black clothes. It makes hiding in the bushes and amongst trees easier. It will help when shaking down other children for their candy.

2.) Carry an extra bag full of raw eggs. When someone gives you crappy candy aim for their door. Also, if you can leave a few hidden close to their door it will make for a nice surprise in a few days.

3.) Take a few extra costumes. Hit every house at least twice.

4.) If trunk or treating, look for cars with keys in the ignition. Sneak inside car and drive away. You, my friend, have bagged yourself the ultimate treat.

5.) Always make sure that your costume is made of flame retardant material. To test this put your costume on your younger brother or sister and light it up. If it goes up in flames that just means more candy for you and a new costume.

Happy Halloween!

Maroon 5 - Misery

I love love love music videos that are totally not what you expect. This video definitely fits that category! Enjoy!

P.S. Any video that has a woman firing a rocket launcher, well..I'm pro that too.

The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow, Maybe

Most people think that being single is great. No children to worry about, you can do what you want to do, spend your money on whatever you want to, and everything is sunshine and rainbows.

Sometimes sunshine and rainbows turns into tears and fears and your friends all have children and husbands. You call them on the phone for just a word of encouragement and to talk about the scary stuff but you end up listening to the cries for "mommy" and stories of childhood drama. You end up alone and sobbing, the fears still hidden in the deep caverns of your mind. You find yourself laying in the dark, tears streaming down your face, praying for the dawn.

Paris-Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

All I can really say about this is WOW! I love love love GPN and this is possibly my favorite song of theirs. Plus, this video has some KILLER Jesus hair and 70's awkward mustaches.

Faking It

Today has been a day of magazines, books, nintendo DS and napping. I have returned only the texts and calls necessary (very very few) and have only gotten out of bed to refill my glass of water or sprint to the potty ( I lay there till the last minute possible. My future is in Depends ads I tell ya.).

I ate cold pizza for breakfast and spaghetti-o's for lunch. I know, it's as sad as I feel. Why am I so sad? I don't know. A funk? To many people asking what happened with him? Feeling less than worthless? Either way I'm ready for it to be done.

Tonight I shall go out and eat, drink and be merry with The Tribe. Will I really be merry? Probably not, but I sure as hell am a firm believer in 'fake it till you make it'.

Mrs. Lily White Burns Down the House

I have a friend who is in the process of building a house. Now I have never had any experience in this but it seems to be a fairly stressful process. When all of this first started she was very happy and excited. Now...well....there are days I think a divorce is eminent. There is carpet, cabinets and tile to pick out and good gracious don't even bring up the subject of doors.

Today I saw this video and could not help but think about my friend. Yes, this video is about a relationship falling apart but still I believe some days that Mrs. Lily White would burn this sucker down.

I love accessories. Anything cute, sparkly or unique has my eye. Yesterday morning I was getting ready for work when I noticed that my sparkly drawer wasn't as full as it should be. Hmmm?

This morning while working I looked down and noticed that it was only 9 A.M. and I had already taken my jewelry off. While I like wearing it, typing with all the bling drives me crazy. Later on I opened my desk drawer and noticed something. I removed pieces of bling from desk until I had this layed out in front of me

I think I have a molting problem. What do you think?

I Run for Life- Melissa Etheridge

As many of you know mine and my family's lives have been greatly touched by cancer. Cancer sucks! There is no better way to say it.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Domestic Violence Awareness month, another thing that I unfortunately know way to much about from a personal perspective.

Today's song is I Run for Life by Melissa Etheridge. I LOVE THIS. When it comes on my ipod I crank it loud and think about all the women AND men effected by not only breast cancer (men can have it too) but all types of cancer. I hope you enjoy this song and also, remember that the American Cancer Society and the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation are two great groups working to help find a cure. I know there are others out there, but these are the two that I have worked with and really enjoyed.
