    Not much. Not much. So I lied... Alot. Alot.
    So I found some people to add to my links list. Go visit. Go share the love.

    As for my slightly creepy obsessive and well creepy post yesterday, I have to say, I am still hurt. Manda gave me a new book to try (bless her heart) called Eliot's Bannana (um yeah it's supposed to have that double meaning). And I just don't know. I haven't even started to really read it and I'm making up excuses to not like it. The main character, her name is Junie. Who is named Junie? June, yes. Julie, yes. Junie, no I'm soooo not feeling it. (By the way if any Junie's stop in and are offended by me not liking their names, I'm sorry) Here's the gist of the book (from the back cover) Junie is in a great relationship, meets older burnt out sci-fi writer has affair, regrets it when she realizes she wants what she had all along. Ta da they totally tell you the whole story on the back cover. But I will try to read it.

    We have finally made some apartment friends for Gabby and Alex. I would say me but I'm the American out. With the exception of Gabby and the oldest child no one else speaks English. You know sometimes I really hate the fact that Alex is Mexican (yeah I know like he could help it.) but not really. Hate is too strong. Dislike. We go and have nightly (early evening) play dates (as of this week). And it's great for Gabby she gets to play with Abby (yes that is hard)(no she doesn't speak English either) who is the same age but like half Gabby's size. But they are cute. But I get left to run after the little children while the rest of the parents talk to Alex because I can't speak Spanish and they can't speak English. Joy o Joy. Just like most of the get togethers with his family. I can either engulf myself in Gabby or stare off into space. I go to be polite but really I would rather run and hide. But enough whining.

    I'm sure just about everyone out there knows this already, but Dinasour, that CGI movie by Disney is fantastic. I was so yelling at the screen, under the pretext of getting Gabby and Abby interested in what was going on (didn't work by the way). I have the Postman Always Rings Twice to watch this weekend. Can I say since I had this dream about the lead actor, John Garfield, I have been so obsessed (thanks a lot Turner Classic Movies). I was devastated to learn that he died at the age of 39, I think, while they were trying to black list him. But anyways I digress. So Monday I return those movies and hope that Gabby gets either Mulan II (long wait) or The Incredibles. While I will be hoping that I will finally get Motorcycle Diary's so I can get a Gael fix. But if that doesn't happen I hope I get Alfie but it that fails I know I will get Mystic River.

    Wish me luck this weekend. We're going out to Mom's to help her plant her 8 new tree's. But in return she is taking us out to see Robots. This feels like an even trade to me! I'll let you know how it goes!

    But first: necklace A picture of Gabby, for the fun of it.

    Till then

    It's sad to say but, it's Over
    Can you believe it? It's over just like that. How can she do that to me? Huh?! Doesn't she know that I'm not finished with this relationship?! I need more. AnnaK how could you let me down? I need to know what happens with you and LDobbler now that you have told him the truth. Come on I'm dying here!! (so as not to sound to crazy please go read this book: Why Girls Are Weird) You took me on such an emotional ride I started this book laughing. Laughing out loud. People would have stared (had it not just been me and Manda) I was laughing so hard. You even made me snort laugh! And CRY damned it. You made my cry. I felt that I was growing and maturing with you!
    And that's it. That's how you choose to end it. Fine be that way. I'm breaking up with you. You suck because I want so much more than you can give, I want to continue to feel like I am spying on you and your relationships. And I just know that I'm not going to be able to replace the empty spot in my hands, at least not until I get paid again. So I must learn how I can live with out your lovely words. I must once again learn the joy's of other books. But, I'm reluctant. What if my next book hurts me like you did? What if that book also leaves me wanting more than it can or will give? Or worse. What if it leaves me empty? What if .... if.... its a bad book. So bad that I must stop reading it because I'm sure I will slip into a ... ... Coma from sheer boredom?
    Will you come back? Please. AnnaK I'm on my knees begging you for more. I must know what happens now. I just feel so abandoned.

    Please don't tell AnnaK. But I'm going to try again. I am going to (in time) get a library card and go visit with Autobiography of a Fat Bride. I will (in time) see if I can read/love again.

    Untill then

    Serious to Silly
    Hmmmm.... Lets make this fun we'll alternate serious and silly facts. Lets start with silly.

    1.) Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes.

    2.) This is a fun "hey what is TC really thinking" kinda place. Unless I'm being obnoxious and naming names, dates and places and addressing people individually, please don't take my ranting to seriously. I don't want to feel like I must censor what I get to write about out of fear of people I care about taking it wrong.

    3.) Women who read romance novels have sex twice as often as those who don't. (So that's the draw to those books!!)

    4.) I love being Blog jacked. Especially if it is to fix and or make it pretty! THANK YOU MANDA!

    5.) The U.S. Government spent $277,000 on pickle research in 1993. (I wonder if it was Kosher)

    6.) Ok, I'm not in the mood for serious. But seriously what is wrong with these brokers?? From her on out I think it will be all silly, also I'm ditching the numbers.

    A Koala Bear sleeps 22 hours of every day. (this is my new answer to that silly survey question)

    In Texas it's illegal to put graffiti on someone else's cow.

    315 entries in Webster's 1996 dictionary were mispelled. (did you catch that?)

    Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch procejt at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosnt mttaer waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe! (ok go back and read it at normal speed it makes little sense if you read it slow.)

    It's illegal to fish in the Ohio River in Kentucky without an Indiana Fishing License.

    Flu shots only work about 70% of the time.

    Baskin Robbins once made ketchup ice cream (ew ew ew ew ew ew)

    And On last one to finish this post.....

    Real diamonds can be made from peanut butter! (I think I need to go to the store)

    You've been blogjacked!
    Okay - not really. It's Manda... I was tinkering around with some things that TC asked me to fix. ;) the posts were duplicated, and I think I fixed it.. just making sure.

    TC - is this okay now? the text still squished together? your post titles are up now. I thought there was something else, but I can't remember.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.
    (TC - feel free to delete this.)

    your friendly neighborhood blogjacker.

    Isn't this lovely?!


    Its my new (only) Tapestry (yes notice it's caps). I have wanted one for soooo freaking long to put up in my dining room! And it was a steal as a second chance on e-bay. The first buyer coped out so I got it for my highest bid of $20. Now I just need to go find a nice Tapestry rod. Not that you care but the picture is a mirror image of the acctual item, the castle is on the other side.

    Oh did I mention that Gabby can sing (and shocked us when she just started one day) Everybody wants to be a cat. Of course her version is everybody, everybody, everybody CAT, I kinda like that better. Its very cute. She bounces up and down while singing it to.

    p.s. Erik, Stacy and everyone else at the dinner. The comment (a few posts back) was more directed to the wind then the acctual people at Satuday's dinner about asking me about Alex. I was just venting since talking to the Alex didn't do any good, I am still upset with him for not thinking of Jenny and being selfish and sending me to the dinner alone and mad. I was just venting.

    Today SUCKS!!!
    Well today sucks major Arse so far.

    I went, as I normally do on Tuesday mornings, to take Gabby to daycare. Only when I get there I am informed that there is no longer a two year old class as of Friday. Well wasn't that nice of them to tell me. Since she only goes on Tuesdays and Thursdays I had no idea. Noooooo they didn't offer to put her in a different class for today since I had no idea and was blind sided. So I have to take Gabby to work, and call Aunt D. Who is sched for her Chemo treatment at 10 to see if she can run Gabby home. Bless her heart she did me that huge favor and unfortunately I think it made her late to her appointment. We'll I've had a few hours to calm down since I started typing this (work is a great distraction) so I can calmly relay what the daycare told me. I knew that Gabby's teacher had quit, what I didn't know was that the teacher of the other two year old class had to resign in the middle of one of her shifts to move back to Florida ASAP for a family emergency. I was under the impression they were only down one teacher instead of 6 who had all recently left for various reasons. So they started calling parents on Friday to inform them of this drastic change. Only they card they have is the one from when I first started her at that daycare oh about a year ago. I have since moved homes and jobs. I know I gave them my updated info and that they have called me on my new work number. God Only Knows what they did with it. Well the reason they had to shut down the classes goes as follows. Hire punk ass kids who don't really know what they are doing for a quick fix, or spend the time to find qualified teachers to replace the great ones they have lost. Given the options I choose door number two. So that means for the next two weeks or so she is home with her daddy allllllll week. So this is all major suckage.

    But on the upside I just got my tapestry that I won on e-bay and it is lovely!!!

    Pure Randomness
    I feel like adding a new segment to this show.


    Did you know:

    That Michael Keatons real name is Michael Douglas??

    The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the males head off.

    Given the opportunity, deer will chew gum and marijuana.

    Women wishing to enter Canada to work as strippers must provide naked photos of themselves to qualify for a visa! (darn there went that plan)

    Women end up digesting most of the lipstick they apply. (see we are beautiful inside and out)

    You are more likely to get attacked by a cow than a shark. (OMG!! Moooooooo I'm going to get you)

    Only 68 of 200 Anglican priests polled could name all Ten Commandments, but half said they believed in space aliens.

    A completely blind chameleon will still take on the colors of its environment.

    Bacteria that cause tooth decay, acne, tuberculosis, and leprosy can be cured with cashews.

    Coconuts kill more people in the world than sharks do. Approximately 150 people are killed each year by coconuts.

    There are 18 doctors in the U.S. called Dr. Doctor, and one called Dr. Surgeon!

    And the last one for today:

    The phrase 'rule of thumb' is derived from and old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb.

    Ohhhh don't I look spiffy!!
    Thank you Manda for your help with this!!! It looks great!!

    Congratulations to Jenny again for getting that huge promotion!! You rock!!

    Lets see. Saturday was full of arguing and snapping and being short, and whiney grown up babies. But that evening was fun. *edit* Poor Gabby is unaccustomed to eating that late and fell asleep at dinner. She was just precious. We need to start the massive e-mails to start planning for April's birthday party now, as it is next week.
    Sunday was pretty fun. I did some Muffin baking (Lemon Poppy and Cranberry Orange both out of the Weight Watchers cook book) those turned out great. Then we took Gabby to the park. I think I have found my new favorite park! Its in a nice rich neighborhood. The children were polite waited their turns, just well behaved. Unlike some others we have run into. We stayed there for a good two hours and she had a blast!! For dinner I made meatloaf cupcakes. I know that sounds strange but it was a great way to get her to eat. You make meatloaf and cook it in a muffin/cupcake pan and when they are finished cooking you frost them with mashed potatoes. The were sooooo cute!!

    And that was just about all for this weekend.

    I did see an apartment complex really close to her daycare that I just can't get out of my mind. The apartment I'm looking at is just a little smaller then the one I have now. Its only 945 sq Ft but the thing that I'm really having an issue with is that the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the apartment. So we'll see I still have some time to look.

    Talk to ya'll soon!
