a real post...from me!

so i've managed to finagle a nine inch nails ticket from a kid in illinois who can't use his ticket, so I'M GOING TO THE CHICAGO SHOW ON MAY 7TH! HAPPY FREAKIN' 30TH BIRTHDAY TO ME, I SAY!
also, as of today, here are my not-smoking stats:

108 days
1621 cigarettes not smoked
$283.50 not spent
12 days, 9 hours of life saved.

isn't that worth a little something?

Spidey! Nooooo!

You have got to be f**king kidding me.....

can i just say how f**king tired i am of democrats complaining about how michael moore hurt the party? that statement is what hurts the party. the democrats fear of a vocal person hurts the party. do you ever hear republicans complain about the vocal stylings of Ann Coulter? even when she says crap like this (as posted on

"whether they are defending the soviet union or bleating for saddam hussein, liberals are always against america. they are either idiots or traitors..."
--from Treason

"there are a lot of bad republicans. there are no good democrats."
--from CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight, July 21, 2003

"i think we ought to nuke north korea right now just to give the rest of the world a warning. Boom!...They're a major threat. I just think it would be fun to nuke them and have it be a warning to...the world."
- Speaking to a New York Observer reporter in January

and DEMOCRATS think that MICHAEL MOORE is the problem? holy crap.

cats, cats and more cats

holy cats in the house! however one did not make it, and abbey was the one to discover it, so there's a little bit of childhood tragedy for you. but luckily we still have 9 freakin' kittens. and we are shedding ourselves of the Impregnator. and when she is done mothering, we are shedding ourselves of the horribly insane Tinkerbell. she nearly took out Dixie's eye the other night. and by "shedding" i mean "donating to a no-kill shelter."
abbey just said that, if Dixie had lost her eye, we could have given her a pirate patch to wear. and changed her name to Willie, so she could be One-Eyed Willie (props to the Goonies).

in completely unrelated non-cat news, i have set up a bedside table/shelf like unit, and it's amazing how together one will feel when all the junk one accumulates next to a bed has a place to go. all of a sudden, i feel a little bit more like a person. good stuff. my bedside shelf contains:

1 lamp
1 electronic yahtzee game (inherited from my granny edna)
1 alarm clock
1 hair clip
1 pen cup containing many good pens
1 telephone
the second shelf holds the following books:
"Diary" by Chuck Palahniuk
"Bridget Jones' Diary"
"The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath (2 different copies, I now see)
"A Writer's Diary" by Virginia Woolf
"Abarat" by Clive Barker
"The Collected Prose of Woody Allen"
"The Huge Book of Hell" by Matt Groening
"Borderline Personality Disorder Demystified" by some guy with many letters after his name
A plain notebook
A journal that I began writing in six years ago.

so now they are all placed neatly on my bedside shelf and it feels all organized and tidy. after i put it all together i thought "THAT'S why people like being neat! it makes them feel normal!"
maybe not "normal," but a little more in control.

behold, kittens!

here we have lickey and her three kittens.


and when there are multiple mothering cats in one household, sometimes they want to "help out" the other mother, stalk them and steal a kitten or two. see evil tinkerbell below, stalking poor lickey...


and here is how excited dixie is to have more cats in the house...


kitten totals:

okay, so many of you may remember me metioning crookshanks, the earless, mostly tailess cat we took in recently. and how he knocked up our THREE female cats. well all cats have officially given birth and the totals are as follows:
Tinkerbell (evil cat): 4
Wanda: 3
Lickey: 3

So we've got little boxes of kittens all over the effing house until June 1, when they can go elsewhere. So, anyone want a kitten? I'll even give a $10 "i read your blog!" discount off of the $20 asking price...

SHAME ON YOU, whoever "you" are, for making this movie. we rented it b/c hey, it's funny to watch sheer government propaganda sometimes -- until the first hour is over, then you see how it's totally bastardized 9/11 for the purpose of showing how tender and caring our administration is, when they are screwing vets and screwing the lower and middle classes and screwing anyone that doesn't bankroll their campaigns.

sorry. i've gone from playing mystery science theater with this to wondering who initiated this made for tv shite.

an open letter to god. or bill gates.

please leave a bag of money on my porch so that i may buy these:

tickets i don't have

i've been good, god (or bill gates). i've not smoked for darn near 90 days! i don't (intentionally) cut off W. bumper stickered-cars off of the interstate! i brush and floss and eat my greens!

i take in sick animals, i recycle (most of the time), i'm a good mom and a funny person.

please leave 305.00 in american currency with which to pay outrageous ticket brokers who have no conscience but who i am willing to pay nevertheless b/c i'll never again have a chance to see NIN in a small venue.

thank you. and i apologize for not always believing in you (god) and calling you "satan" (bill gates).

cadaver politik

THE DEBATES CONTINUE. and there is a whole lotta opinion on abortion from many who will never have one, so girls, chime in!


I think HE should be buried alive.

health care debate

if you have a moment, you should check in on the debate on health care on the CADAVER POLITIK blog. chime in your two cents. hell, chime in your fifty cents. come on, i know you're good for it.

this post will be no good.

so i was adjusting my hair clip to a better fit and i heard the sad sound of plastic breaking right into my very hair! so now it's an ill-fitting hair clip. it's an ugly hair clip anyhow....

hair clip

but it does serve the purpose of "hair out of face immediately" without much fuss. however it PALES in comparison to the dandy of a hair clip from many years past...

banana clip

that's right. the banana clip. but to utilize the banana clip, i would need to also be wearing acid-washed jeans and L.A. Gear hitops. and probably some stretch pants with some scrunchy socks.

and, as a side note, when you are searching google images for "banana clips," you will see, in addition to banana clips and hairstyles from the 1980s, machine guns. true story.

greetings from da springs

abbey LOOOOOVES hiking around the garden of the gods. LOOOVES IT! luckily shane enjoys hiking, too. in my haste to prepare for this trip, i didn't pack the cable necessary to download photos taken thus far, so those will not be here for a spell. but good times all around the springs! and did we "spring ahead" with our time today? we're trying to figure out what time it is...
