blaugh forward joke

Forward This Funny

*snort* I think Jim is in some serious trouble don't you? I can't say I haven't thought the same thing when people have sent me one too many of those joke forwards.

As you read this I am either getting injected with radioactive dye that will turn my skin green, make me grow muscles, and talk like an ogre OR I'm laying down on a cold slab while being passed through a whirring buzzing donut without sprinkles OR you're late and you've missed the fun until tomorrow.

If it's the last one then now I know what kind of friend you are! Don't bother checking on me until the afternoon? What did you have something more important to do? Wow. Just WOW!!! You suck! *snicker*

Seriously though, wish me luck as today is day one of two that I have an Octreotide Scan scheduled. Thankfully I only have to be stuck the first day with radiation but the scan is still long and since you have to lie perfectly still it is BORING as hell! All this just to say whether or not the lymph node in my neck is cancerous or not even though it NEEDS TO COME OUT ANYWAY! Yeah, this shit is still really stupid if you ask me but I haven't had an O Scan done in two years so we might as well see if I'm glowing anywhere new. ;)

Speaking of being stuck... I gave myself my second B12 injection Saturday and it honestly hurts less than when a nurse does it. So far so good. The funny thing is that my husband went to pick up the rest of my prescription that morning which were the needles and syringes (of which I was expecting maybe 10 at most). Oh noooooo honey, they gave him a box of ONE HUNDRED needles and syringes!! Ahahahahaha.

Man, my neighbors would get a kick out of that one! Why? Well because due to the reviews I do, the UPS, USPS, DHL, and FedEx guys are here almost daily dropping off "packages". If the neighbors knew I had all these needles too they'd probably think I was running a meth lab! *snort* That was a laugh "snort" not a snorting something "snort". Just so we're on the same page here. ;)

As for the Exercise for Comments post I did, so far it's going great! You guys are commenting more mostly just because you think making me move my fat ass is funny but eh, whatever works right? Yesterday was the start of a new week so we'll see just how much you're all wanting me to push it. Can you keep up with me?

*flexing my pecks*

*deciding that flexing my pecks won't work as I have itty bitty "pecks"*

Oh and in answer to two of Meg's questions- I have decided that I can only do up to but not more than the amount of exercise that is owed on here. I can still do the exercise here at home but I just can't count it if it goes over what you've racked up for the week. Also, no my comments don't count you rotten witch! :p And to think, I raced you back from the Wolf Sanctuary once. Hmmphh. ;)

I'm determined to actually get this up at a decent time this week like I'm suppose to so here it is! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Today the kids and I are going to decorate/carve pumpkins, I'm going to roast pumpkin seeds, and also figure out how to puree some of the pumpkin to try a muffin recipe that is suppose to be really awesome. If it turns out I'll share the recipe with you all. ;)

Also, please keep my friend Angie Lee in your thoughts. She's having a very rough time right now and could use your prayers if you pray and your thoughts too. Love ya girl and hang in there.

Blue Tea For Five and Me(me)

Well it seems I've been tagged for another meme and while I still owe more of these things than I can count, like Andrew said...the quicker I respond the quicker the pain of it will go away. LOL. So Andrew tagged me for this Blue Tea Meme which I guess is called such because it was started by a lady who has a blog called Blue Tea. Makes sense doesn't it?

According to the original poster, the rules for this meme are: “Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you’d also like to take. Tag five. ” Yes, this time I will be tagging five of your asses because you keep doing this crap to ME!! Meg...you are first woman! *evil laugh*

Here is my curriculum:

1) Car maintenance - I would be in this with Andrew for all the same reasons. I am completely and totally car stupid. With my memory problems I can't even remember to check the tire pressure once a week so I would need this class. Of course, if I were in it with Andrew we would probably act like a couple of kids, mess up everything, and then get sent to the Dean. All in all it would be fun no matter what! :)

2) Tai Chi- Why? Because I'm sick of trying to do this shit on my own! The little Chinese woman on my dvds (who is as tall as my 5 year old) obviously has no clue that it takes longer to move three feet worth of legs! When she pulls out the finger fans and starts moving all graceful and crap I usually throw something at the screen. She always knows I'll be back the next day though. Bitch.

3) Ancient Religions- While I'm not religious and more Atheist than anything, I do love studying religion especially ancient ones. Believe it or not they were so much less complicated than religion is today yet at the same time they were so immense and interesting that religion today just can't compare. I love being able to look at religion from a scientific and neutral standpoint and analyze it. Some of you would be so shocked to find out how similar the current religions are. Then again, I love Iconology, Sociology, Psychology, Physiology, and Symbology so yeah, I'm an odd one.

4) Ancient Civilizations- To be honest, I find nothing interesting about the modern world...it's boring. There I said it. BORING! Ancient civilizations are so interesting to me and to be honest I have a hard time teaching my kids U.S. History because it is so young, boring, and just blah. Crete has history, Italy has history, Scotland has history but the U.S. just has a few hundred years. Boooooooo.

5) Algebra- While I'm smart in several areas, Mathematics is not one of them. I can't do Algebra and no matter how hard I try to learn it the whole thing just gets all jumbled in my head. My friend Meg says that maybe I have a form of math dyslexia which I think sounds nicer than the "Hey stupid try hanging on to it this time" that reverberates through my hollow head anytime I try doing it. LOL

6) Interior Decorating- I use to have a gay male friend who was so awesome at decorating that I would have married him for that reason alone if he would have let me. Well that reason and he cried during movies with me. *sigh* Gay guys are the best. Anywho- since I can't convince my oldest son to be either gay or take interior decorating and the youngest boy doesn't have any potential in that department either, I desperately need help in this department. I want to decorate my house and make it a home. As it stands now I can't even decide what color to paint the living room (read as make THEM paint the living room) because we have beige carpet, mocha couch and chair, and wood everything in the furniture. I want to go with blues to lighten it up but eh... I'm clueless.

7) Philosophy- This one is just for pure selfish want not because it would help me in life. I love philosophy and could read it all day every day. Unfortunately I'm the only one in this house who truly likes it. My husband takes it at school but I think that's just so he can make himself feel smarter than me. Get over it already!

Numbers 3, 4 and 7 are just for fun and probably wouldn't fix my life but they sure would be something I would enjoy! Okay so I'm tagging Janice (this is just purely out of revenge folks), Meg (because she's being just evil right now), Eliza (because I know she'd do the same to me), Sara (even though I still owe her the meme she tagged me for), and Frankie (because she came out of hiding to post a comment just to get me to exercise!).

I expect every single damn one of you to do it too! Oh and Andrew, don't think for a minute that I'm not plotting my revenge on you mister. hehehe

HA! Take That!!

Oh you guys are just plain evil you know that? Not only are you making sure to comment more now that you know I have to exercise in return but SOME OF YOU are being very very bad!! Paybacks woman, that's all I'm gonna say! :p

So far you have left 23 comments/minutes and today I was able to use up 15 minutes by taking the kids to the museum. Since I was walking so slow to look through everything I didn't count the whole hour and more that we were there but instead just cut it down to 15 minutes. I figure taking an actual walk, doing my Tai Chi, or finally trying those beginner Bellydancing dvds of mine are better ways to use my time up. Of course, when I left there were only about 17 comments so I thought I would get ahead. Smartasses! lol

I wish I could take up running or even kickboxing. Wouldn't that be cool? Then I could kick a certain person's butt everytime he dares to tag me for a meme. AHEM!! Oh well, maybe in another life and in a new body right? With this body I'm limited to things that don't cause stress on my body (which means even yoga...booooo) so that's why I've chosen walking to the duck pond with MonkeyBoy, Tai Chi, and bellydancing.

My arms are getting flabby too so I might just toss in some mild weightlifting. I know I can lift 5lbs without my right shoulder going out so I'll work up to that and see how things go. It all sounds so pathetic doesn't it? I sound like a little old lady who thinks she's supergranny and is hittin' the gym. Ugh.

Thank you all for loving me enough to comment and make me get off my duff. A real problem I have had is that I've been afraid of the pain for way too long now. I'm afraid to exercise because I know it brings on the pain and the flare ups but because of that I never get to find out what might be on the other side of that pain. My mind just figures it's more pain and da hell with that! I want to see if maybe some pain relief is on the other side plus I want to feel healthier, look better, and have more energy if that is possible for me.

So keep the comments coming and I'll keep moving muh bum to keep up with you.

Will Sweat For Comments!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Okay so maybe I won't actually agree to sweat but I will agree to exercise. Thanks to Elizabeth at Table4Five, I found this great idea of exercising for comments and have decided it's just what I need. Moving my fat ass has never been one of the top things to do on my list even but I know it's something I really need to do. I need more exercise to combat some of the pain and I'd really love to lose at least a few pounds.

So here is where YOU come in. For every comment you make on this blog (any post past, present, or future) I will do one minute's worth of exercising up to 45 minutes per day. I'd go a whole 60 per day but I'm not going to push it just yet.

The way it will work is if you comment on one of my posts (with more than just "Hi Jo" please) then I will owe you one minute of exercise. There is no limit on how many comments you can make so enjoy going back through my archives and getting to know me a little better. I will compile the time up to 315 minutes for the entire week and work off what I owe as the week progresses.

I will post the total number of minutes I owe for the week each day plus how many minutes I've already completed. So it will look like this...

Jo Owes Her Readers ___ Minutes Of Exercise This Week.

She Has Completed ____ Minutes So Far This Week.

So how badly do you want to make Jo move her ass? I guess we'll find out right?

Mad Click Monday 10/22/07

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Even though it is late and almost Tuesday now, I didn't want to miss posting another Mad Click Monday for everyone. I apologize for last week and my only excuse for my absence in blogging lately is just plain illness and some health issues that have come up again. I'm planning for scans, operations, trying to do my reviews, and missing my blog friends and readers like crazy!

One thing I was able to do is change my review blog from Sona Creidhe Reviews (which immediately after I deleted the URL it was taken over by a spammy ad site...bastards!) to LWH Reviews. I felt it would do better as a spinoff of this blog plus some of the places I'm doing reviews for keep wanting them posted here at LWH and that's not what this blog is really for. So hopefully by Christmas I can get my reviews and such off here and solely on a review blog. Hang in there folks, I promise it will be back to more fun than blah soon!

So let's get to MCM and remember, you can join in on any day of the week. It doesn't have to be on a Monday or even Tuesday. HERE are the "rules" and please remember to try to find ads on participants blogs to click. With Christmas coming up I'm sure everyone can use a little extra pocket change. Besides, this is the time of the year when the ads are actually somewhat interesting! LOL.

For me personally, I have a feedburner ad that runs after the first post on the front page that helps me out and I know for some others it's Google, BlogHer, or BlogAds that are important. So please take the time to not only join the fun but also give some click love to the others.

Andrew is still having a Nintendo Wii giveaway and Eliza who posts giveaways every Tuesday and Thursday. Girlfriend posts ALOT of great giveaways and I've won several of them!! She's even running a Giant Hanes Giveaway right now with lots of really cool clothes and puppets from Hanes.!!

So Where's The Nekkie Men?

Naked Man Spam


And less emails about enlarging a penis that I don't even own! According to some great spam this week...

I have won the UK lottery. All I need to do is send my name, address, telephone number, and social security number to confirm my prize. GO ME!! Yeah, not a chance in hell there old chap.

Some girl is obviously distraught because her new boyfriend's little boy parts don't fit very well with her big girlie parts. Thanks. I'm no Dr. Ruth but maybe if this girl would quit getting a new boyfriend every other day (at least that's how often I get this email) maybe she wouldn't have that problem! One word girl... KEGELS!!! I'm jus sayin'. ;)

A very wealthy man in Namibia has left me his inheritance. All I have to do to claim it is send his executor my information and they will send me a check. Yeah, and I'm really a short brunette with big boobs too. *eyeroll* Shut up David and Andrew! :p

There is a new ointment that can enlarge my penis by at least TWO inches! TWO!! I don't know about you but I'm excited! Rub a little of that on and I will finally have my very own two inch long penis! Woohoo, then I can...well what the hell can you do with a two inch long penis? I might need a couple bottles of that ointment because if I'm growing a penis dammit I want a big one!

The secret to financial success is paying $16.95 for an ebook. Who'da thunk it? Anybody have $16.95 I can borrow? I want financial success and it's not like I won't pay you back. I mean, this ebook is going to make me RICH!!! I'll even make it an even $17 when I pay you back. *wink wink*

Say HA!HA!HA To Wrinkles. Well gee, I can say HAHAHA anyway because I don't HAVE any wrinkles! HA!

And last but not least, Emilio E. Moran (Emilio@bresnan.net) says he "went from being "mr little" too "mr big boy" within 6 months"! SIX MONTHS!!! WOW!! You grow boy! Could you do me a favor though? Next time you feel like bragging could you skip spamming me and just email someone who actually gives a shit? I'm happy for you, really I am. I just don't care is all.

Ahhhh the good ole days when the worst thing you got in your email was a nekkie picture from a friend who knew you'd either blush or shout "WOOHOO". You know what I'm talking about. You know you looked!

Anyway- I should find out soon when my surgery on my neck is and then I will let you know! Make sure you visit Andrew who is having a Nintendo Wii giveaway, Eliza who posts giveaways every Tuesday and Thursday, and be sure to enter my own giveaway for a Deluxe Cinderella costume from Little Adventures!

I know technically this is late and I apologize. Yesterday wiped me out completely and there is alot I didn't get finished. So while it's actually a day late (I'm timestamping it for Monday though) hopefully you will still join in.

Thank you once again to everyone who regularly posts about Mad Click Monday on their sites.

HERE are the kinda-sorta-in-a-roundabout-way rules. lol
