so quiet this weekend…

Leave a comment

my internet was down at home, and then I found out on Sunday-my phone was down too. Thanks to a friend, in another state. I was able to contact a live person. Nice to know I could look this stuff up on line. but um, what if online doesn’t work???!!!

anywho, the tech people are due at my house shortly to fix the problems. and then hopefully I can get online, save my Sim, and do some writing with my co-writer.

lol on the Sim, from the facebook game. I have been getting updates on the iphone when it wanted to work this weekend. I finally found out what it’s issue was, and have since fixed it. But omg-no net this weekend. I got a lot of cleaning/organizing done. Was able to watch the Day of Destruction on SyFy channel, and read a new book.

For some ppl, it’s hard to remember what we did before the internet. Me, go read a book, take a walk, sit outside and just ponder. aka goof off! lol 😀

so hopefully tonight when I get home, I’ll be able to placate my plot bunnies and do some writing. I was able to jot some story ideas down on paper, and on the iPad. So, it wasn’t all that devasting. lol

Ya’ll have an awesome Monday!

Happy Day!

A friend surprised me today with $30 in iTunes gift cards. Waahoooo!

What a great Unbirthday it is today!
Hope your Friday is just as awesome!

theme of the day!


My choice of eyecandy! LOL Sam Worthington & Hugh Jackman.
Hmm, both Aussie’s…interesting. 🙂

and my public thank you’s to my friends that have been sending me said eyecandy in my email’s today! Ya’ll make me SMILE! 😀

and okay, some of those pix, I get warm tinglies too. LMAO!

anywho, the gist of this entry. Friends! No matter where they are, or even if we agree on my choice of music, movies, television shows, etc. They are still there for me. And they show it, by sending me pix of things that they know will cheer me up!

Now, I’m not having a bad day or anything. But it’s not been an easy day either. So to sneak a peek at my email, when I’m not busy, has been a true pleasure today. lol (see what I did there?)

anywho, me and my girlfriend’s want to give Skeen a big group Hug and loads of smoochies for the eyecandy today. You totally get the award; “You’re the Man!” from us today!!

take a bow! 😀

silliness in life is a great joy. If you can’t enjoy something completely and utterly silly, you should try.

like the words; Hamster Infestation have me rolling and laughing till I’m crying. I’ll let the person that said that to me, explain in a comment.

peace & hugs

two of the pix, that I can share in this forum. 🙂

Google Alerts


~time to change my thoughts~

Do you use Google alerts? yes, no? Do you know what they are?

Well let me tell you how I use Google Alerts, and you can decide for yourself.

Google Alerts is a nifty little app that you can program to give you daily updates on certain key words.

For me, I have maybe ten google alerts. I have alerts on my favorite actors- to find out what’s new and upcoming in their careers, where they will be for a convention, etc.

I have alerts set on my name, both married and maiden names. Keeep an eye on who’s doing what with my name.

I have alerts on book series, and the authors. Again find out when a new book, or if the Author has a new series coming out.

I think this is a nifty little app that google has, and that not everyone appears aware of. Um, go and google: Google Alerts
It’s very easy to use. Try it.

So comments, who does use Google alerts? Will you try after reading this article? 😀 no, I’m not affiliated with Google in any way, shape or form. LOL I wish!!! 😀

okay for those that get these posts in email. Yeah, I caught that HUGE typo, just as I hit publish.

It’s been corrected in the blog. oops!

Grammar Nazi strikes again, part two

Leave a comment

So, I was going to do a reply to one of the comments on this post, however, I realized while I was thinking, that this is going to be a long reply. Therefore, with that in mind, I just decided to do a part two. Skeen, thank you for the comment. And here’s the reply.

I know, that Text speak is taking over the new generation. That’s all fine and dandy. Myself, I totally went through, like you know, the whole bitchin’ Valspeak phase myself. And I can still go from .0 to speaking it like a pro. But that doesn’t mean that it’s appropriate to do so.

Some of what I was mentioning earlier was found in a Professional Forum, that’s right, people that are academically degreed in our profession. And there are areas on the forum where text speak is allowed, but…not in the “Professional” areas. So to find a bunch of text speak in an off-limits area, is what set me off.

Also not everyone knows what text speak, acronyms are. Myself, I didn’t start texting till about a year ago. And even then, I find it hard not to spell out a word correctly. Not everyone texts or…this is going to be hard to fathom…own a computer.

My own Aunt used to type LOL at the end of an email, right before her name. I finally asked her what she thought that meant. She thought it meant lots of love. She was happy I told her what it stood for, because other members of the family were being silly with her. (Not mean, but they teased her about it…A Lot!)

So there is another area, the age gap, perhaps it is me, being slightly older. Then again, I still believe if you are writing in a professional capacity, then you should utilize proper grammar, spelling. I have seen some acronyms in reports that should not be there. FYI, is fine. BTW is not.

So…hopefully that is a good answer to your comment, and thank you again, Skeen! I always look forward to your comments.

Now, everyone else, don’t be shy. I appreciate and answer all comments.

Take care and have a great day!

It almost snowed here today in Canada (barf), so it only seems appropriate to share one of the most anticipated summer collections – Zoya Beach & Surf. This mega collection features 6 creamy bold shades = beach & 6 shimmer foil shades = surf. Both collections compliment each other creating one massive must-have 12 piece collection that can be worn on it’s own or mixed & matched together to pop on tanned skin.

For all swatches below we paired beach polish with it’s complimentary surf polish (we’ve been wearing them in pairs since we got them).

Shelby – this colour is so ‘us’ it hurts. Soft Pepto-Bismol/Barbie dream car pink – this is a shade we often turn to when we realize we’ve worn nothing but black and grey for the past week. This pink has a slight blue base and is a great thick formula, barely needing two coats…

Grammar Nazi is at it again…


OMG, what is with people??

can you not speak properly, and then spell what you say?
Text lingo is not actual words. Yes, I know, I do it myself-but…not to ppl that don’t know me.

two words I’ve seen lately, that is absolutely driving me nuts:

whit, used in, “I wanna go whit you.” means? With

tat, used in, “I want tat!” means? That

I ignore people that speak to me like this. Why? If you don’t have enough self-respect to speak correctly, why should I respect you to reply? Simple in my mind. NOW, if this person is a friend, yeah, I’ll reply. But I’ll also let them know just how ridiculous they sound.

Now to be fair, I have on occasions, spelt Kittens as Kitteh’s. But I have done so in a way, that it is cute- not ridiculous. So, yes, I know I do it too, but not every day, in every conversation I have. I mean really? Do you want to be taken seriously? Or are you really that clueless? Because word of advice here, if you submit an application or a resume’ to someone with these ‘text’ words, you won’t be taken seriously. Trust me! I have denied people access to groups due to the fact that they can’t write correctly, and when I ask them for clarification, they reply back, “WTF is ur prob?”
ps- being rude to someone like this, quaranteed, you aren’t going to get what you want?

It’s Monday! um, yay? lol


As most of you have seen, I’ve been kinda quiet still. Yeah, living proof that depression doesn’t go away over night. 🙂

I’m feeling better, but still have moments of eh, bleh, and meh! Yeah, very descriptive, huh? LOL

However, I do want to thank one of my friends. Mz Lovely, this weekend she brought me Starbucks to work-when I was here on-call. Today she brought me back lunch!! Seriously, she is a Phenomenal woman! & I luvs her! 🙂
(For those that follow me, on facebook, Mz Lovely is the start of her handle on there.)

It is a beautiful day here in Central/North Indiana. And I’m enjoying it! I’m on nights this week, and I’ve been sweet-talking my co-writer, Pinky, (LOL) to continue writing. Right now, the part of the story we’re at, it’s his baby! I do need to go in, re-read what/where my character is at, and do some writing myself. But…we’ll see if google docs wants to cooperative with me, at work this week. I type to fast to do it on the iPhone. 😀

Yesterday was earth day, and as part of my ‘Staying Green’ I stayed off the internet most of the day. I stayed off the tv, most of the day. I did go outside, and read a book. I’m now looking to see if the book is the first in a series, if so…I might have a new series to read. If not, it really should be. LOL

So, hopefully in your corner of the world, it is just as pretty outside. do yourself a favor, and go spend some time outside today if it is. Enjoy the warmth of the sun on your face. -Don’t forget to apply sunblock, though.- Enjoy the breeze ruffling your hair, or scalp as the case may be. Enjoy simply being alive to enjoy! 😀

This is sweet!


Last week we asked our Facebook readers to vote on what tutorial they would like to see next – city skyline won (by one vote!). We loved hearing what you guys would like to see & plan on doing this again in the future, so stay tuned for more chances to contribute to PYP. We’ve been wanting to try a skyline nail for a long, long time & were really excited this won. We have seen some others in the past but what to put our own spin on it.

Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint nails with The Balm – Pink or Swim. The Balm cosmetics has recently starting popping up are local drug stores & we were so excited to  get some polishes to sample, especially such bright colors! Like most neons, this color dried with almost a matte like quality but is a great vibrant…
