Today’s Random Thoughts


I just had this thought:  Random thoughts translated into Pidgin English is Da Kine!  What isn’t, yeah? LOL

As usual, I’ve been writing in my head so when I looked at when the last time I wrote, I was like; REALLY. 🙂 Goofy ladat.

Ain’t gonna lie, I’m a Match3 game player on my devices. Mindless time waster. Swear to gawd. It’s not candy crush but its made by the same people; candy something.

I know a bunch of people who have dropped out of Facebook. Respectfully so, and I have to admire them for not being sucked into the cyber addition of being nosey, unlike myself. Total niele-ness sometimes; like I have nothing better to do then be a troll. I get sucked into that, how the hell…. oh look and omg, I wonder, let me search, hmmmmm. Although I have to admit there are some educational stuff. But more so THEY want to sell you something. And me the shopper…..

I like to think I KNOW who all my friends are on FB. But every now and then a “friend” will pop up and I’m who the hell is that?  Or how are we friends now?  I take the word “friend” literal. Unlike kids nowadays who I think think it more like “virtual”.

FB helps me keep track of my kids lives and going ons. In the same sense that it helps them keep track of “their mother.”  I can’t believe how much crap I post or share, okay mostly share.  I want EVERYone to know what I just read. LOL

America held hostage.  That’s what it is isn’t? Work for free? Are you F’en kidding me? My heart hurts cause I know the feeling of NO funding and bills need to be paid.  When you tell somebody, you can’t have your job back till I get my gazillionjillion funds for some inanimate object; isn’t that extortion. You can’t pay the national debt but you think you can buy something as much as or more then what your debt is; isn’t that living beyond your means.  I think its pretty sad cause its the families that’s hurting the most and these frking SUITs don’t give a ratsass. They can say all they want about caring but they are getting a paycheck and they ain’t financially hurting. So STFU.

I feel bad for America because other countries must be shaking their heads and laughing; what the hell happened….. AND America is like don’t get me started…

Oh and another thing, McDonald’s at the White House! From class to trash. WTH I woulda walked out and go to restaurant.  I go visit the White House and you give me MickyD’s.  How insulting to the Chef is that? OMG you couldn’t cook. A buffet would have been nice. I bet the fries were cold too. I did not see a chaffer in the pictures. Like that would make a difference.  These guys don’t know what embarrassing is. Is there no hope? That is the sadness of it.

This new year, does not feel all that new. I’ve been working on 2019 stuff since August September 2018 so now that 2019 is here its like, so what else is new? LOL I think its my attitude. All about perspective right?

Email Vibe


I deal with a lot of people/vendors over email. We talk over the phone only if we really really have to, its necessary emergency, crisis mode kind of a thing.

Over past two years I usually deal with one person, so we develop a history. So even though we’ve never met, STILL there is a vibe right? Or is that just me.

Because like one person I’ve been dealing with, she’s really good. She gets me or she’s been doing it so long she anticipates and knows what I’m thinking and asks me the right questions. I can ask her stuff and she finds me the answers or suggest/recommend things that are really helpful.  The emails are concise and quick. The timing just works. I think I may have spoken to her once, so long ago I don’t remember.  We pretty much can iron things out via email. It’s a good vibe kinda of feeling.

Whereas, another company that person kinda grates on my nerve. It’s not bad or nothing. It just so different from the ‘really good one”. LOL Case in point this morning the question was “do I want the logo in Reflex Blue or Process blue?” And I told her a couple of times I do not know what the difference is, but whatever is DARK BLUE is,  is fine.  So then she later emails and says you did not specify which blue. Again, dark blue because I don’t know the difference between Reflex & Process Blue.

So an hour or so later, I get the email with the color swatches. My thought was, could you not have sent that initially instead of 3 emails & an hour later.  So I’m looking at Reflex & Process Blue and to me Process Blue looks like Sky Blue or turquoisey. But thats me. The Reflex Blue is a normal Blue.

In the mean time, SHE calls me. So I’m talking to her while I’m looking at the color swatches email. I decide Reflex Blue. AND she says, ” thats the color your company usually uses.” Well hells bells why did you not say that at the get go and I would have gone with that and be done with it.

It irritated me. Ok decisions done. No mas! Maybe its cause I haven’t eaten yet. Hangry mode. LOL

Quiet New Year 2019


It wasn’t quiet quiet. Fireworks were going on outside.  Some sounds sounded like a gun. But what the hell do I know. It was loud and it went BOOM.

For whatever reason it was quiet. Or maybe that was just me.  Nobody was around, everyone went out. I read a book. I finished the book.

HAPPY NEW YEAR as I look a the time and its 1 a.m. Duh?

Perhaps that is a sign that the upcoming year will be one of peacefullness. That this year, the year of pig will be quiet. Oink oink!  Or smooth. Or stress-less.  We can only hope.

I went into WalMart the other day and I think I’m sick; I didn’t feel like shopping around or shopping look or nothing. Went in got the toilet paper & stuff and done. It’s a sign I tell you, of I don’t know WTH though.  Maybe I grew up? LOL

I wasn’t even disappointed that I didn’t win the Lottery or Mega Bucks. 🙂  Yeah I must be growing up.

Happy 2019!

End of the Year Random Thoughts


Cold:  I’m cold.  Early on my endocrinologist told me:  “If people around you are feeling cold, your are colder. If people around you feel hot, you are hotter. You have no thermostat.” Fine –  that has been my normal for more then a decade. So yeah, my cold is colder then your cold and my hot is hotter they your hot.  But I don’t say anything, I just deal with it.  Such is life, ain’t it!

Today:  Last day of the year, no shit; followed by the first day of they year. Is it too early to say I’ve made it through this year?  There’s still a few more hours. Don’t want to 2nd guess myself. Cross the street and get hit by a truck or something? I think like that. LOL Ok so I’ve made it thru MOST of they year and hopefully I will wake up in the morning and start the new one. God willing.

Shopping:  I was not in the mood to shop this year. Well ok I’m always in the mood to shop; BUT this Christmas not so much. I wanted to but I actually paid bills. I did buy gifts but mostly for immediate family. I walked around the stores enough but I was not compelled to buy. You know what I mean.  In fact I didn’t even get a cart because my thought is I might fill it up.  So unless I’m there for groceries, I don’t get a cart.  My thought is if I can’t carry it myself, I can’t have it.  So I buy fabric. LOL

Fabric:  I have 5 aprons to sew. I’ll probably do it all in one day. LOL Or think I can do it. The most in one day I’ve done is 4.  I think it came out to 1 hour each, give or take some. Depends on how focus I am. Whether I stop to eat or not?  🙂 Pinterest.com has been fueling my want to sew feelings.  People are so creative. I need creativity to kick me in the ass to get me going.

Time:  Time flys when you’re having fun or when you aren’t thinking about it.  It was like yesterday we were all complaining about the summer heat. AND now it’s past Christmas. HTH!  Kind of like Y2K ain’t it?  Now 18 – 19 years later I’m wondering if those PREP People food stash is still eatable. Me thinks they should eat what they have and start a new stash. They at least need to check expiration dates right.

NY Resolution:  Who’s idea was that? I don’t make them.  Well I do but I don’t tell nobody.  I don’t need people telling me “I told you so.”  LOL New Year resolutions are mostly the same right? Lose Weight, Save Money, be more tolerant, be less of an asshole. 🙂 Just because everyone HAS an asshole, does not mean one has to ACT like an asshole. What else kind of NY resolutions are there? Drink less alcohol. Good luck with that alcoholics. LOL I can talk trash cause I don’t drink. Now. But I use to. Every weekend. Then I had kids and I drank every day. Nah nah nah, just kidding. Their father did. LOL Just calling the kettle black.

Happy New Year:  Has anyone said have a Sad New Year? I know there are people who are having a sad time or hard time. Telling homeless people Merry Christmas and a Happy Year is kind of a double edge sword.  We only wish for the best. Respectfully so.

Happy New Year to Alla’y’all.

Hauoli Makahiki hou!  Hana ho tomorrow maybe.  🙂

White Elephant Gift Exchange


I attended a dinner that included a white elephant gift exchange.  Those are always fun until you get something you like and it gets stolen!

So the first thing I chose was a Pioneer Woman Crockpot! Nice right? From the get go I knew it was gonna go… FINE!

The next item I chose a bigger better Pioneer Woman Crockpot! I really wanted the first one and choosing this one meant to me that I was meant to have one; if not only briefly because YEAH – it got stolen.

So then I chose a set of Faberware knives. You know that colorful set sold at Sam’s Club. Yeah – it got stolen.

I thought White Elephant Gift Exchange was about gag gifts and stuff.  Evidently not this one.

Ok so the knives get stolen from me so I pick, drum rolllll please: A Griddle! A full size I would have cooked breakfast if I had it kind of griddle.  And the lady next to me says, “Oh you know that one is getting stolen too.”  No shit. So after several more people it’s that ladies turn and YEAH, she steals it.

Then I pick a nice fleece Native design blanket. YES it gets stolen.

Then I pick a Mini Humidifier? WTH…. And the Lady next to me says: “I think you’re safe now.”  WTH nobody wants a mini humidifier?

I have a Christmas luncheon to go to that includes a White Elephant gift exchange.  Guess what gift I’m bringing? 🙂

Merry Christmas, happy gift exchanging and a Happy New Year!

2019 all ready…. I thought the world was gonna end at Y2K – 19 years later and are still here! WHAT!

December 13, 2018 Random Thoughts


I was thinking of writing about something or other then I forgot then I thought – random thoughts. So random thoughts it is…

I’ve been feeling RUSHED. Like hurry up and wait rush. This has to get done now BUT. But THIS can”t get done unless another piece is done first and that is what I am waiting for.  My RUSH is not the same as other peoples rush. Just like 5 minutes means 5 minutes or less, that is my idea of 5 minutes. NOT 5 minutes and 15 minutes later, some how its still is 5 minutes. What? No. I think some people just have a lateness built it to them.

Undercover:  I DISlike getting out of bed these days. Its all warm and cozy under the covers. Even to go to the bathroom, I wait as long as I can not to get outta bed. Unhealthy I know. LOL Love staying in bed, hate knowing how much time I wasted doing nothing BUT I was comfortable. 🙂

Shopping Cart:  If I’m not grocery shopping, I don’t get a shopping cart when I go into the store because I don’t want to fill it up. If I can’t carry it I can’t have it. LOL  I see people who just throw things into their cart and I wish I can do that but I am not in that tax bracket. Once upon a time I use to average $60-$100.00 every time I walk into WalMart. I stopped that years ago. So nowadays I’m always surprised when I spend $20 or less there. I like WalMarts in Oklahoma maybe because they are closer to Bentonville. I think they have better or more stuff.  Like I need more stuff.

Reading:  I need to read more. I have a stack of books waiting for me to read. The thing is when I read, I read.  Don’t do nothing else till I finish the book. Kinda of like binge watching Netflix. 🙂

Sewing:  I sewed 4 aprons and 5 table runners. Now I have 3 aprons to do before Christmas and I have an order of 5 to do before January something?  I keep buying fabric. Then I get my scraps and make something else, so why do I still have tons of fabric? Oh yeah cause I bought more. LOL I have Grandsons travel blankies to finish, duh? Before Christmas, hello? Note to self:  SEW.

Running off to sew……

Today’s Random Thoughts


It’s December! Duh? Seems like just a few weeks ago I was complaining about heat and now its COLD. Can’t complain. Its fine, just layer. Can’t change the weather, just adjust. Yet I hear people going on and on about the weather. Nothing you say is going to change it. Shut up all ready. I mean every office has one ain’t it…. they go on & on about the weather. If not that its ailments. My cold is worst then your cold. Oh yeah, my cancer is worst then your cancer. Boom! Shuttup!

Feeling a bit crotchity grouchy this morning.  So much to do so little time. And then someone will give me something, with the “OH yeah I forgot to give this to you weeks ago so I need this NOW.”

I write in my head a lot, virtual blogging. LOL So I think I’ve written in here cause it feels like I did. Then I come in here and I’m like; sure thought I wrote it in here? Yeah and pretty sure you don’t remember because according to the post in here, “no you didn’t”!

I’m on business travel tomorrow. I don’t usually travel, I’m usually the person that holds down the fort. BUT its Christmas dinner time so yeah, I will be going. I like traveling. I don’t like catching up after coming back from travel. Its like I’m outta synch and I’m more then two steps behind and I thought I did that before I left. Guess not! I irritate myself with those feelings. LOL

Wrapping:  I love wrapping presents. Must be a childhood thing because I don’t remember ever doing that. So now that I do, do it; I enjoy it.  During Thanksgiving I wrapped a whole lot of gifts because Daughter Dear did her shopping so I could wrap them. LOL I remember when I was little there was a lady that worked at Sears and all she did was wrap presents all day and I thought that was the coolest job.  I know now that I probably wouldn’t want to do it ALL day but I wouldn’t mind especially if they were paying me. Well. 🙂

I read a book this past weekend. Surprise surprise. I surprised myself. I didn’t watch Netflix or K-Drama. I just read. Started reading it in the book store, clearance, bought it. Read 3/4’s of it Saturday and the rest on Sunday. Stuart Woods’ Sex, Lies and Serious Money. Easy reading. A Stone Barrington Series, such a man whore.

I have a pile of books that I need to read yet I bought a new book and read it first. What is wrong with me. LOL

Black Friday-ing


I don’t do it. Sounds good. But no.

I’ve been to one Black Friday at the Mall once in my life time.  I can say I’ve done it once.  I can say I don’t like it. I don’t need it. Its hype and I’m jaded and cynical. So never mind. LOL

Lines…. I hate lines. I don’t do lines well. It makes me the click bait for the next rude ugly person who assumes I’m Mexican or that every brown person is Mexican or Muslim. Although I’ve not been mistaken for a Muslim. YET.  I bet if I rocked a hijab I would be.  Cause you know, IF YOU are wearing a hijab you must be Muslim.

Money…I’m not in the tax bracket  or credit card bracket where I can just buy now pay later. Or buy whatever I want in cash.  I’m working on it though. 🙂

People…. all the hoards of people and crying kids who don’t want to be there and shouldn’t be there anyway bring a certain amount of tension  to the air and that is too much tension. I like to be calm and zenned out when I shop.  Its called Retail Therapy for a reason.  If its not calm & zen it ain’t therapy its more like stressed out pressure buying.

Like most holidays these days Black Friday is holiday hype created by retailers.  It shows how “sheepish” we are.  Like sheep, we just follow the crowd sometimes, everyones doing it and we don’t want to be the only one NOT doing it.

With Amazon and other online retailers, WE can now shop from the privacy of our own home wearing what ever the hell we want or nothing at all. How comfortable is that? Now that is Retail Therapy  🙂

It’s Next Year All Ready


As we wait to eat and shop till we drop then shop some more for Christmas; I’m like WalMart I got you beat.

I have been working on projects for February 2019 so as far as I’m concerned its almost Valentines Day.  Yes, I got you beat WalMart.  You ever notice WalMart has Valentines Day stuff out on December 26.  Way to rush us retail…..

WalMart must hate Amazon or anything online shopping.  I must do the Mom & Pop local retailer shopping, or Etsy. 🙂  There is some cool stuff on Etsy.com and for the most part the funds go to the crafter or at least its not some corporate pay your employees minimum wage company. Ok maybe I’m wrong but you know what I mean.

It was just this summer when I was thinking watch time speeds up and next thing we know Christmas is here.  Itsssss heeeerrreeee……

Three paydays to Christmas y’all. Kind of sad.  Christmas is about money & presents. Lets just admit its about the bottom line and happy birthday to Jesus is just an excuse to eat dessert. Jesus or not we all would eat dessert anyway.  Sorry I’m just jaded and cynical. I think the Happy Birthday Jesus thing is just to make us feel like yes we are grateful; BUT!  Always a but!

But I didn’t get what I want, so must be I wasn’t a good girl….

But I am a good girl and I buy my own stuff so never mind….

But didn’t you say you were going to buy me that….

Let me be first to say to y’all:

Happy New Year – Happy 2019 – May the new year bring you increased wealth and decreased weight!  ❤

House of Cards


I binged watched Season 5 & 6 of House of Cards this past 3 day weekend.

I think FRANK will pop up outta the grave.  Don’t they always do  in these types of dramas. Although didn’t Keven Spacey get canned? Doesn’t mean jack, money talks & bullshit walks.  I don’t think its Frances baby. When did they fuck sleeping in seperate rooms?  I think its Writer Toms baby, they at least were in the same bed.  I think it was creepy when Frank was sitting in the room with his wife & the other guy in bed. I thought it was creepy a President getting hit on by another guy too. ‘Cause I’m judgemental & superficial like that; so UNPresidential. I think its cause I think “cute” or “handsome” counts and I did not see none of that.  But hey, different strokes for different folks. None of my business ain’t it? Oh yeah and its just a TV drama, not reality.  Although you know fact is stranger then fiction sometimes. LOL

Even though its Hollywood, I think its closer to the truth then not. Ok the truth maybe worst but the series is not that far from the truth.  All the cut throating, back stabbing and scapegoating and crap like that…. you gotta be thick skinned and have no scrupples. Who can work in that kind of environment?  With me, Vibes count and  seems like a lot of bad Juju going on. Oh right, its just TV. Or Netflix. 🙂

Low man on the totem pole gets thrown to the wolves. Every person has a “fall guy” in mind from the get go somebody they are ready to throw under the bus to save their own ass.  Or everyone decides what is “good for the country” which bascially is code for “how much money am I getting.”

I’m thinking we all should have a Fixer, or a Handler,  or whatever you call it; at least one per family. Because you know we all have those days when we want that person that cleans the scene, spins the stories and get rid of the dead bodies. Oh I think you have to be in a certain tax bracket to have one. Never mind. LOL

You would think somebody in THAT HOUSE watches it and takes some cues or plays from it but then again you gotta be smart enough to do that and make heads or tails of the legalities. You have to read and do your homework. Operative word, READ.

Amazing how people can live like that. Justify crap with crap as long as its not them and they continue to make money. It is about the bottom line after all, why else; right?

I think I watch it, waiting for KARMA to show up.  As if its not written in the screenplay. LOL
