Tag I’m it!

So I got WordPress tagged by Amor from Amor’s Thoughts and by Adrianna from In Search of the Silver Lining. I’m going to combine the questions because part of this is that you have to tag 11 other people in it and I don’t know 11 people to tag let alone 22. So here I go:

Here are The Rules.

  1. You must post the rules.
  2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
  3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
  4. Let them know you’ve tagged them

Amor’s questions:

1. What do you think happens when you die?

 People fight over who gets your Xbox and flat screen tv.

2. Creation vs Evolution?

Creation, cuz me and J.C. are tight like that and I didn’t come from no damn tadpole monkey beast.

3. Will there ever be an end to suffering?

Nope. 

4.Do you believe in global warming?

I don’t think of it as something to believe in really. Do I think it’s happening? Yep. Will I start driving an electric car and using those re-usable grocery bags? Probably not.

5. What would be your dream job?

Believe it or not I’d love to be an English teacher. Too bad they don’t get paid shit unless you’re teaching at a university or something. I love words and reading and being a complete geek for shit like that.

6. What’s your ideal vacation spot?

At this point any fucking where. I’ve yet to go on a real vacation and I’m determined to go somewhere that isn’t the east coast sometime this decade. Preferably an island. 

7. Are you content with the choices you made in your life?

Not all of them no. I don’t think anyone is fully content with all the choices they’ve made. Have I made peace with them? Yep. You can’t change the past so there’s no reason to dwell in it. 

8. If you knew you’re going to die tomorrow, what would you do?

The cliche shit like spend time with my family. Oh and smack someone in the face really, really hard. If you’ve never smacked anyone in the face you should. It’s a great feeling. Continue reading

2011 in Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog. In lie of a regular post today and because it was my first day back at work after 3 weeks off and I was busy returning 174 unread e-mails and 16 voicemails, I’m sharing my year in review which really kicked off the latter part of the year. Check it out and thanx for the views and referrals and comments nshit. I’ll be back to normal tomorrow. 

..who knew I had viewers in PaPa New Guinea? Cool. 

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,600 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

The Lottery Question

The only solid thing I had planned for today was to figure out what I’m cooking tonight and go buy some more lottery tickets. I’ve got my tickets still in limbo on dinner. I don’t buy lotto tickets all the time, actually, most times I do want to get them I almost always forget and the only times I buy are when the jackpots are ridiculously high. I assume this is when most other people buy too. The  Mega Millions Jackpot is up to $173 million!!!!  I got some of those last night but obviously I lost since I’m blogging and not doing the dougie in my yard.  So, as it normally happens whenever I do buy a lotto ticket, I have my ‘I  just won the lottery dream’ in where I’m zipping around in a Maserati GT, taking trips to the islands with my bf and coming home to our mini-mansion. Then I wake up and have to convince myself that no, I didn’t win shit and let me take my ass to work. I’m still holding out for the Powerball though. Stay tuned.

But what if I did? What if you did? I was thinking about it on my drive to work and came up with 12 things I’d use the money for if I won the lottery.

1. A new car

I just bought a new car about a month or so ago but I’d buy another new car. Shit maybe like two more cars. This is probably the one thing I would splurge on but only because I have an affinity for nice cars. I’m sure this is standard and on most people’s list of things to buy. Moving on.

2. A new house

I’d pay off my current house and rent it out and buy a newer, slightly larger house. With a wrap-around porch….and a circular driveway…..and a really big kitchen….and a game room..and..ok I’m done. Continue reading

Single Mother Sagas: Recognizing The Stand Up Father

There are a few things that really get under my skin. People who drive under 80 in the left lane, when my hand towels aren’t hanging straight, the toilet paper going under instead of over and bitter, unappreciative, money hungry mothers. Today’s post is about the latter. I doubt anyone would want to read an entire post about my OCD toilet paper issues anyway.

Let me start off by saying that I know it takes two to raise a child and all that good stuff. This isn’t about why there are so many single mothers out there and the reasons why the relationships didn’t work, why some men are deadbeat fathers or why women have kids with losers. Continue reading
