11 Fun Facts About Me!

HiRes

Okay, I’m linkin’ up this meme on Talk To Us Tuesday So that you all can meet a new blogger. She’s just started bloggin’ and needs some blogger love. Make her feel welcome.

Southern Transplant

Be sure to link up with Shawn and IA also.

1. You must post the rules.

2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.

3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create 11 new questions to ask the people you've tagged.

4. Tag 11 people and link them on your post. (And you know I’m a rule breaker and don’t tag people. If you want to do this, Feel Free TO DO SO! Just let me know so I can read you’re answers.)

5. Let them know you've tagged them! (mute point)

And becuz this is such a long blog entry, I’m gonna do it in 2 parts.

  11 Fun Facts about me:

1) I know it’s not obvious but I’m scatterbrained. Not a total airhead but just absent minded sometimes… not all the time. And do not talk to Roy about it. He’ll tell you different! Jackass!

2) I am high strung. I Know! Right? Another Shocking Fact! But yes, I make a big deal of the littlest things. And Roy can vouch for that… and not be entirely a Jackass about it.

3) I have a childhood fear that rules my entire life. I can not and will not ever sleep closest person to the bedroom door. I don’t care where we go or that whole “I only sleep on the left side” thing. I will not be the person nearest the bedroom door. When I as little, I had a fear that someone would break into my room and kill me… you know the boogie man or vampires… so I put my baby sister on the THAT side of the bed. When the bad guy came into the room he would grab my sister, I would scream, Daddy would come runnin’ and save ME. Good plan. And I still do that to this day. Roy will wake up and shoot the intruder and save ME.

4) I carry myself as if I’m 6foot 2inches though I’m only 4foot 11inches tall. I’m not a dwarf… or an oompa loompa. I am proportionally correct with all my body parts… Okay, not my ass. It’s big. If I was 6foot 2, It would be perfect.

5) I make a mean margarita! It is fabulous!! It’s a real manslayer… a pantie dropper!

6) I am basically fearless. Except for that bedroom door thing. I don’t like snakes but I’m not exactly afraid of them. I know that when they bite it will hurt. Who wants to be hurt? So if I scream and run that doesn’t mean I’m afraid of them. Nor roller coasters. I may scream my lungs out but I will ride it over and over and over again.

7) My husband spoils me. I know I give a bad time but he really does. I cook on All-Clad. He bought me a swimming pool. He’s taken me on 6 cruises. He bought me a Harley for Christmas and 2 brand new cars right off the showroom floor. I’m quite happy with him and best of all, he’s happy with me… I buy him guns. And I am not afraid to get up close and personal with Elvis.

8) My hub is a gun nut. But I own more than him.

9) Roy bought me a Harley for Christmas in 2001 and in 2002, I rode my bike to Sturgis! You know Sturgis, South Dakota where the Big Motorcycle Rally is held… round trip well over 1500 miles. Very proud of myself. And my ass hurt like hell!!

10) Remember this? Ruffles the Alligator Snappin’ Turtle and how he’ll grow into that?

IMG_3340 alligator-snapping-turtle

Well, we’re gonna make him a pond and keep him.

We think he’s retarded. He doesn’t swim right.

But mostly becuz I’m afraid someone will shoot him.

 

 

11) I love to cook… hence the big ass… but I do not like to clean the mess. But that’s normal. Right?

Now becuz the Tag is so long and I don’t want to bore you anymore than I already have, I’ll finish the rest of it Next Tuesday.

Until then… Much Love, Big Hugs and Too Much Tequila!

Boy Cars VS Girl Cars…

My new car is a boy car.

Roy said, “what makes it a boy car?”

“It’s a Transformer. Boys play with Transformers.”

“It’s a Camaro just like your other one. An SS just like your other one. It can be a girl car.”

“My red Camaro, I could find matching lipstick and nail polish!”

“You can get yellow nail polish!”

“Yellow Nail Polish Makes Your Fingers Look Like You have Fungus! Boys have fungus!”

“Well you got me there.”

He’s over the moon!

 

I’m still poutin’.

The Break-Up…

It’s a sad, sad day. The end of a very good relationship… I have heard that all good things must come an end. I don’t really understand that concept. Why? Why can’t things go on forever?

Friday, I needed to go to Hellmart. I needed Roy to drive the car. It didn’t feel right at all. The car and I are as one and I know when something is wrong with it. You’ve seen Avatar. Imagine me with my tail plugged into my car and we glide the roads of Oklahoma as one. I’ve often referred to it as my X-Wing Fighter becuz the Force drives us together… not Roy! He doesn’t drive it as much as I do. He’s not in tune with it. He doesn’t drive it right!! So of course we bitch at each other all the freakin’ way to town!

Before we went to Hellmart, he wanted to eat something, so we went to Sonic. And as we were sittin’ there waitin’ for our food, I noticed some that the mechanic had screwed up on my car! And here we go again, Roy and I bitchin’ and bawlin’ at each other over my car.

“Honey, You know how I am about this car! I want it to be right. It’s all I’ve ever wanted and I’ll ever get…”

“What do you want from me? It’s old and it’s gonna have problems.”

“I want you to sympathize with me about this car! You know how I am about it. I want it to be right!”

“It’s old. Thing are gonna were out.”

Now I’m mad! I have been bitchin’ at him for the last 20 minutes but I wasn’t mad. I hadn’t raised my voice but now I’m piss smooth off.

“Well then we might as well trade it off!”

“You don’t mean that.” And deep down I didn’t. I knew that he would understand my frustration about the car though.

We left Sonic and drove less than one block to the Chevy Dealer. Roy said, “We are not buying anything. We are just looking.” I nodded in agreement becuz I know what we can afford and what we can’t. I would be perfectly happy drivin’ a used car as long as I always had my Camaro to drive too. You know leave it set and pull it out for road trips but not for every day use. Save it some mileage and wear and tear on the old girl.

I kept my mouth shut and let the men do all the talkin’… but when Roy said, “let’s crunch some numbers and see what we come up with” I felt the knife going in!

And when Roy said, “Trade the Camaro.” The tears started to fall!! Serious tears. I had to walk out. I left the building! I had men runnin’ after me. I was losin’ my baby!!

My car.

IMG_4069

I love my car.

It would kill me to see it with stupid ass 17 year old boy drivin’ it around with dents in it or freakin’ ugly paint job!!

 

 

 

He made me give my girl car for a boy car… I’m crying now.

IMG_4201

It’s a Transformer!! the Bumble Bee.

I’m coping. It’s really hard.

The Doppelganger…

This Scooter. IMG_2956

He is quick as lightnin’ and yes, he has a shoe fetish. We just live with it. He’s in my shoes or Roy’s boots… every one has their thing.

One night Roy was lookin’ out the front door and noticed Scooter was out on the front porch. There’s no tellin’ how long he’s been out there!!

Once I came home from work and couldn’t find him! I turned the house up side down and shook it and NO SCOOTER dropped out! I was headed out to where Roy was mowin’, he’d been mowin’ all day in the heat. He was gonna help me find Scooter. I was marchin’ Roy back to the house on the verge of tears… And there on the back porch laid Scooter! All Hot From Being OUT ALL DAY LONG!!

Once, I was doin’ the dishes to look out the kitchen window to see Scooter sittin’ on the light bar of Roy’s CopCar!!

And now, big as Texas, Scooter outside at night on the front porch!! Roy went out to get him. And of course he ran around the house… like he always does! Roy was stompin’ around in the backyard hollerin’ for Scooter, gettin' madder by the minute, when I noticed, SCOOTER WAS CURLED UP IN A BALL BEHIND THE WOODSTOVE!!!

Who the hell was Roy tryin’ to catch?? A cat that looks exactly like our cat!!

We’ve watched for Scooter2 and he comes up every night to eat with the outside cats.

Birthday, Anniversary, And Boundaries…

HiRes

I’ve not been in the mood to blog lately. I think my life has become borin’ and not worth repeatin’…  so I think I’ll just type.

Roy’s birthday was on Friday… The 13th!! I took him out to lunch at Dead Lobstah. Then since he bought me jewels for my birthday, it was only fair that I take him down and pick me out some more… for future reference of course. Our 20th Anniversary of our First Kiss is comin’ up and he needs to know what I want.

Don’t get all excited, he already has permission to buy a gun at the next Big Gun Show. I told him that would be fine to buy me a special gun for my 20th anniversary… or Jewels.

I’m not picky.

Let me throw this out for an opinion from the masses… If a woman calls your husband to wish him a happy birthday but doesn’t call you on your birthday, do you think it strange? Do you suspect there maybe something going on? That maybe she doesn’t know boundaries or rather what is proper in a friendship? Roy’s friends know the rules about wives. No one is to call me or attempt to ask things of me without him knowing it.

I don’t know how I feel about it… I’ve had him for 20 years!! I’m not givin’ Roy up!

So come outta the woodwork and tell me what you think?

Link up with Seriously Shawn and Impulsive Addict! These 2 gals are a hoot!

It’s Wednesday!!!

WWTKbuttonand time to answer those Questions from The We Want To Know Gals… Mamarazzi, Queso, and Crazymama!

Not a lot going on in life around here, other than the car breakin’ down every week. Almost makes me afraid to drive it. Roy said, “now that clutch is new it will be tight and be harder to push.” That would be a no. So I have to relearn it!

UGH!! Just. UGH!!

But on with the show…

{1} What is your most commonly used word or phrase when you are frustrated? UGH!! online like on Facebook but 9 times outta 10 it’s “shit” in real life. “Fuck” is too much most of the time and “damn” is never really enough but “Shit!” pretty wells covers everything.


{2} What random question do you usually get from strangers or casual acquaintances? “Is he always like this?” Roy. You think I’m a riot… Roy’s got me beat 10 times over. And yet, he’s a pain in the ass. Becuz the look on the person askin’ the question has this mournful sad look on their face as if to say, “oh you poor girl.” And I always nod my head yes and say, “all. the. time.” Take for instance the day he had an accident at work. He stepped into a 12 foot sewage hole, hittin’ his head on the edge of the hole that had rocks stickin’ out and landed on his hip on a huge concrete pipe. So imagine a bloody head wound on a man covered in mud and sewage… not a pretty picture! So he calls me, “I’m alright but I’ve been in an accident.” The last time I heard those words, he had been in a shoot out… or was is when he was in that car wreck… Anyway… The whole time we were in the ER, he was crackin’ jokes and interuptin’ the doctors that were tryin’ to tell him what they were gonna do and the findin’s of those tests they had ran on him. But nooooo… he’s crackin’ jokes! We get home and he says, “what did that doctor say about my head wound?” I HAVE NO IDEA!!! YOU WOULDN’T SHUT THE FUCK UP LONG ENOUGH FOR HIM TO SAY!!! And boot shoppin’ with him… well, let’s just not go there!


{3} Did you ever correspond by mail with anyone, who? Do you still have the letters? I get letters from my mother in law and no I don’t save them. And I do not reply.


{4} Do you dance in public? why or why not? No. Roy turns all red and walks away. And as I have vowed to not embarrass him in public, I do not dance in public.


{5} What is your favorite kind of chapstick/lip balm? I have umpteen bazillion sticks of some sort of lip balm… It’s like an addiction. Like nail polish… I also have umpteen bazillion bottles of polish and my toes are currently nekked. But Beauty Rush by Victoria’s Secret… Sugar High.

When It Rains, It Pours…

This is supposed to be my year!!! But Noooooooo!

IMG_4069

These are 2 of my very most favorite things on Earth… Roy and My Car! It’s 14yrs old with over 177000 miles on it. I have been the one to put nearly 90% of the miles on it. I love this car. I have wanted this car since I could form the word, Camaro.

My daddy had one in 1968 and again in 1976.

My oldest daughter, EdithAnne was conceived in a ‘69 Camaro.

I love Camaros.

And that man bought it for me… Right off the ShowRoom floor!! He’s told me time and time again to “slow my HappyAss down” and has threatened to take it from me if I didn’t! He gets on to me all the time about wreckin’ it but I have not put one scratch on it… there’s no dents or even a door ding!

I am one with that car… it is my X-wing fighter.

On Christmas, Roy found a hole in the radiator and $600 later, I was on the road again. But one day, while drivin’ to town, it started grindin’ gears!!!

Yes, It’s Standard. And my Clutch died. Flat died in Hellmart parking lot. NO REVERSE!!!!!!! $1500 to fix it!!!!! My mechanic said “for a car with that much power, It’s a wonder you got 177000 miles outta of it!” I know how to drive it, and I choose to drive 70 mph every where I go!!

There’s been talk about new car.

I’M NOT HAPPY!!!

Hump Day Q&A…

WWTKbutton3
Becuz it’s Wednesday and I don’t really want to get into all the crap that’s in my head at the moment… it need to percolate and drain to filter out all the needless bullshit!
So I’m doing the Wednesday Linkup with Mamarazzi, Queso, and Crazymama.
 Link UP!!
 
{1} What do you love about blogging? I started bloggin’ on a whim as a way to vent and people started readin’ it and so I lurked them and they made me laugh and I started LEAVING COMMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and we started emailin’ and chattin’ and facebookin’ and now I have some of THE BEST FRIENDS!!!!! Seriously. I leave comments and see what happens!
{2} What is your favorite scent of candle/air freshener? Tough Question! I like a lot! I not allowed to have candles… becuz of all the times I’ve left them goin’ unsupervised… I haven’t burned a building down… yet. I love the flowery ones.
Not roses or lavender… smell like old lady!
Speakin’ of old lady… I was in the bathroom at Roy’s doctor’s office and you know that smell of old lady with 2 week old underwear on that has a yeast infection… that is what that bathroom smelled like! Of all people that can afford to have that little skunk air freshener in the john, You’d think they would!! A heavy dose of roses and lavender would have been nice!
{3} How would you describe your style? My style of what?
My style of clothing… modern to old school preppy to biker chick.
My style of books… suspense mysteries to chick lit.
My style of movies… anything but bad porn. Believe me there is some bad porn. The chick is so fakin’ it when the second the man touches her boob and she orgasms.
My style of bloggin’… keepin’ it real!
{4} What are 3 things your dream home would have that your current home doesn't have? A bigger closet!! One big enough to walk in and house the washer and dryer and all my purses and shoes.
A bigger bedroom. I have a king size bed crammed in a room and only have enough room to walk around it.
This will sound odd, but a smaller kitchen. Seriously. Smaller. I could run a track meet in here!! The one I have is laid out all wrong. The fridge is way over on the other side way away from the sink and the stove. Oh The Stove isn’t even in the system of cabinets!! There is nothing on either side of it. When I fell thru the floor and priced the new kitchen cabinets and flooring… well. I still have all the old ones! Too Much For Me!
{5} Do you look at your keyboard when you type? No, as a matter of fact I look at the screen. And sometimes… all of the time… My hands are flyin’ all around in the air and typin’ at the same time… I talk with my hands so naturally they fly off the keyboard all the time for effect of the story. I’ve been asked more than once, “what the hell are you doin’? Tryin’ to fly?”
