All The Things

This is a list of all the things that are annoying me today:

Old people

Being nagged to death

Children who drop their dirty clothes right where they take them off, always. Which is better than flinging their underpants halfway across the room, where I later find them somewhere ridiculous, like on a lamp or in the toy box.

People who post EVERY. SINGLE. SOLITARY. DETAIL of their personal lives online.

The fact that my scissor happy cousin is coming this weekend, and last time she was here, she and her sister stuck craft tape all over the furniture and my daughter’s Legos. 12 years old, for fucks sake.

Most of my father’s relatives.



I felt sorry for the other cruise passengers because they didn’t have our wonderful dining crew. Lito and Jack were awesome. They made each dining experience something to be remembered and were extremely patient with and kind to the twins.

These guys work hard & are away from their families for months at a time. To remain so positive and treat their guests so well while surely being homesick is truly amazing.

I salute them for their hard work and a job well done.

Your boys are the cutest little things, oh my goodness!

So my cousin is sick. She’ll be 20 in a couple weeks and on Wednesday she finds out which neurological disorder, out of several possibilities, that she has. MS is one of the possibilities, which is even more devastating to me because my mother has it. She was diagnosed 16 years ago almost to the day, and has been completely disabled for many years. Making this worse is that my aunt is quite possibly the dumbest person I have ever met. Given the places I’ve worked, that’s saying a lot. She doesn’t listen or comprehend anything, and then just makes up her own reality. My cousin is on parental house arrest at the moment, she isn’t allowed to go anywhere or do anything except lay down. Because apparently having an ex sister-in-law with MS for 16 years makes you an expert on a disease your daughter hasn’t even been diagnosed with yet. If I make if through the next 3 days without having a Facebook explosion on her stupid ass, it’ll be a Fucking miracle, and I’m not easily prone to that sort of thing.




i’m all for boys wearing makeup mostly because if more of them got into it there’d be a bigger market and it wouldn’t cost $25 for an eyeshadow primer anymore

i can’t wait to go into the makeup aisle to get the latest man-color of guyshadow that comes in containers shaped like bullets and footballs

"Bruh I just went to sephora and got the sickest shade of eyeshadow"
"Sick dude what’s it called"
"Monster truck gas fumes"

Ha, I think several brands make a shade like that!

Getting Ahead of Myself

So I have about half a potholder at this point, knitted, and my brain is furiously planning projects for Christmas. The potholder is supposed to become a blanket, a big, man size one. I also want to make between 3 and 5 kid sized blankets and at least 2 scares. Yes, I know, I’m a little crazy. We’ll see how far I get on the first blanket. When I was having my lesson, we only casted on about a scarf sized row, so I may finish a scarf, because I think I can do that this weekend, and then if I crap out on the blanket, at least I have one project done. Plus I am borrowing these needles and need to return them. I bought my own before the lesson, but they weren’t suitable for the blanket so I went and got different ones. It’s a thick yarn, too, so it should go pretty fast. I may have picked that up from Alpha-Lima-Lima-Papa and thought it might be a good way to cheat time, and this yarn is super soft and was only $2.97 a skein at Wal-Mart. My local Wal-Mart, for the most part, has a crappy knitting section but they have 2 kinds of yarn that is very soft and comes in a couple gorgeous colors, and is super cheap. The same yarn at JoAnn’s is $2-$3 more, at least, but they have way more colors in my favorite. We’re pretty rural, so that’s pretty much all there is, unless I drive an hour away to a different Wal-Mart and JoAnn’s. I think the good ‘ol internet is going to be my best friend, but I can’t stand not being able to feel things first, at least when it comes to yarn. I am the luckiest person ever about sweaters, scarves and blankets.
