Wild West Town

Last weekend I went to Wild West Town with one of my oldest and dearest best friend and her son. Here are some pictures. We had a blast. The pictures show the fun. So much 2 of us ended up in their jail. We had to sing and dance to get out.

The gym, shoes and a plastic bag

My boyfriend and I decided to go to the gym tonight. Well his shoes were in a plastic bag that was sitting on top of the garbage can in the garage. Well he asked me to grab it which I did. We get to the gym and he goes to change his shoes and there is only one in the bag. So we look down the hall at the f and don't see it. Well he decides to wear his dirty shoes. We work out and leave. His shoe is not in the car. Once at home we see the shoe sitting on top of the garbage can. It fell out when I grabbed it. I didn't notice at all. It was me being blonde.

Does not watching movies make me weird

When people start talking about movies I'm at a loss. I don't watch movies. So I cannot add anything to the conversation. Then when people ask me if I have a seen a certain movie and I say no I don't watch movies. They look at me like I'm some type of freakish alien. I can think of so many other things to do with 2 hours. Like go hiking, go to the Chicago Botanic garden or a museum.

The last movie I watched was Cars and that was a few years ago when I was on vacation with my brother, sister-in- law and their kids. Of course it wasn't just watching it once it was multiple time on he plane alone.

For 5 years I worked for Blockbuster. As get this an assistant manager. Prior to that I worked in my mom and aunts video store for about 3 years. I watched some movies. Not a lot but I'd watch like 4 a month. Which is not a lot. But I still managed to be able to give reviews on all the movies.

As a teenager in the 1980's I'd watch all the John Hughes movies. I do own some of them like Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles and a few others. I watch other movies as well. But heck I was a teenager and it was one of the things we did.

So am I alone this this. Or am I a some headless alien.

Life long friends

I love hanging out with my BFF. No matter how long it has been since we have talked or have seen each other we pick it right up. But we have know each other since we were 12. Hard to believe it will be 30 years next year.

We hung out yesterday with her son at an old west town. It was great and a lot of fun. We panned for gold, rode the train, the canoe rides and dressed up in old clothes and took a picture.

My grammar. Yes it sucks donkey balls.

I don't claim to be a scholar. I do like to write but writing correctly is not something I do real well. I am not find of always having to commas, etc.

My spelling has always been awful. My senior year in high school we had vocabulary workbooks. My English teacher thought it would be good not only test us on the definitions of the words but the spelling as well. We had to get 100% on the spelling. Well I would be after class retaking the test. Of course I would spell the word I got wrong right but then I'd misspell another word.

I don't have an editor following me around so you'll have to see what comes out. Because sometimes I saw it write something that comes out funny.

The city and homeless people

I always feel bad for the homeless people. I do volunteer work at my church helping them. But while in the city today we were walking in a park and there were quite a few homeless people sleeping. One had all just stuff on a bench and was he was standing in shorts. He then started to put on jeans and a shirt.

We continued on our walk and we see one peeing on a tree. We both chuckled to ourselves while we walked out of the park and they guy goes to lay back down on his cardboard bed. Yes I said cardboard bed.

It is just another chapter of what I see.

Gold Canyon Candle convention

So I decided I was going to go to the Gold Canyon Candle convention. It is in Phoenix Az. I figured since I am an independent fragrance consultant I should go. Plus the fact I want out of my full time job. So with all these heat waves I'm thinking am I nuts. I have been watching the temps down there and it has been around 108 for like ever. Granted I live in the Chicago land area we can get down to -108. Ok a little over kill but it gets cold here.

I'm thinking I need to buy some very skinny outfits to wear so I don't melt. Of course after being there for 5 minutes I may be a puddle of liquid.

Maybe by the time I leave on August 1st some fluke cold front will come through. I'm not counting on it because it's Phoenix not Chicago. At least here I know it can snow anytime.

Car ride with 4 kids

I had taken my cousins kids to my dads to go swimming on the 4th of July. The conversation was like this.

11 year old what kind of music do you have on your iPad?

14 year old all she has is Bon Jovi and Madonna. Nothing new.

Me Madonna came out with a new album this year.

14 year old yea like in January that's old.

7 year old Bon Jovi rocks. Do you have living on a prayer?

Me laughs. Yes I do.

10 year old sits there and eats his oreos the whole time.

Cracks me up that a 7 year old knew a Bon Jovi song and one from the 80's no less.

Until next time what's your favorite song?

My life to music

If my life was set to music. Some of the songs would be:

Talk dirty to me - Poison
Pour some sugar on me - Def Leppard
Dancing queen -ABBA
You outta know - Alanis Morissette
Xanadu -Olivia Netwon-John
80's dance music
Any Bon Jovi song
Any Madonna song
Any Julian Lennon song
A few songs by Menudo

Yes there is a wide range is music listed. The list would probably be a lot longer. Some songs have memories that go with them. Others I just love.

What songs would you have if your life was to music?

Stupid people and the weekend

The weekend was good. We went to the Crusin Nite and saw all the old cars. We go a lot on Fridays. It is in out little downtown area. I love seeing all the old cars.

Saturday we hung out at home since it was still unbearable out with the heat. I did work on the bachelorette invites. Which was a pain because the matron of honor wanted them out this weekend and kept wanting changes. I have done so many of them that it was driving me nuts. I almost told her then you do them. It was like she didn't trust me and didn't want any input from me. Oh well. Funny part is that she wanted the RSVP for August 1 and the party isn't until September 20. Not to mention I don't think the shower invites have been sent out and the shower is the August 25. This is one wedding where I have done so little for it and was a bridesmaid.

Sunday we went to the Renaissance Faire. We always have a blast there. Plus there a always a few people to laugh at that wear something that they shouldn't be. I'm always amaze at people who where things where their fat is hanging out. The acts are always great too. We always make sure we see our favs and they remember us.

Until next time stay cool.

Storm clouds

These are the clouds I saw on my way home. There was lighting as well but I took the 2 pictures with my iPhone while at a stop light.

Nature is so awesome. It can change quickly. I love living in the Midwest. All 4 seasons or in the Chicago land area winter and construction.

Until next time keep cool.

Yep. More things I'd like to say.

If you smile back at me what do you think will happen? I don't think your face will crack.

Yep, I think if I knock on your head it'll be hallow.

Please go back to your home planet.

With all this bullshit going on I must be going to the wrong parties.

I'm going back to my home planet.
There's too much drama here.

You couldn't have spent an extra $.50 and gotten the $2.00 perfume?

Sorry, I don't remember what you said, I started courting how many times you were clearing your throat.

Are you sure you're human?

Yes this is America and I speak English. Why don't you?

Yes, my family is dysfunctional and I'm not sharing. I don't want to know want your dysfunction is.

Oh did I say that out loud? I thought I was thinking it.

Until next time just say it.

Happy Birthday America

Yes it is the 4th of July. The day America was born. I wouldn't live in another country.

Our fore fathers fought hard for us to have freedoms. Not to have them slowly taken away like they are now. I do not need someone telling me I need healthcare or what to do with my body I don't even need someone telling me I can't make a million dollars. If I wanted that I would move to another country that does tell their people that.

I am off to celebrate what our founding fathers believed in not what our current leaders believe.

Until next time keep the fireworks going and stand up for your freedom.
