I could really dish out the dirt and totally expose myself and the whole enchilada of my breakdown yesterday but I just won't. There were/are many facets of why I have felt so crappy and why I had my boo-hoo. I don't want to come off as being pathetic. It's just a lot of stuff and I had my moment to cry about it all. I look forward to the New Year and I hope that it will be better. I know that there are many changes coming my way, especially in regards to my parents. I just want a better round of holiday merriment next year that's all. elizinashe

And so as I was picking up a few food items today, I decided to look at their cards being that my dad's birthday is this coming Thursday. My reasoning was that I didn't want or have to make a extra trip to Wal-Mart or Target just for a card. Now I will admit that I was looking for something nice for my father from his 'little girl'(which I did find) but in the process I found the most wonderful card for a friend of mine who's birthday is one day before mine. It has Darrell written all over it. I find it sooo silly that I wanted to share it with my readers before I drop it in the post office. ...I can hear him laughing now. So instead of bitching about school and how freaked out I am about what's going on in my life I will now proudly share with you the Top Ten Types of Farts according to Darrell's up and coming birthday card. Hope you enjoy!
Top Ten Types of Farts
10 The Pull My Finger-going back to generations, this fart is employed strictly for comedic purposes.
9 The Oopsie-Daisy -also know as the "excuse me", this most frequently occurs in the workplace,elevators and fine restaurants.
8 The Running Multi-Fart- a favorite among children at play, this is the closest a person can actually come to making music while breaking wind.
7 The Bubble Maker- The only underwater fart on the list, one or more of these will enliven any bathing or swimming experience.
6 The Amplified Commode Blow- Loud and satisfying these tend to occur while a person is in the process of passing a whole lot more than gas.
5 The Muffler- Often occuring in cars this refers to any fart which has had its natural sound altered or suppressed by a seat cushion or couch.
4 The Change of Underwear-A farting faux pas, this variety of wind-breaking is always accompanied by an uncomfortably moist feeling.
3 The Bachelor-Favored by unattached apartment dwellers, these are produced with a "What the hell I'm the only one here" attitude.
2 The Blowtorch-The few daring souls who have attempted lighting their farts have experienced this phenomenon. A word to the wise, Don't try this at home
And the Number One Type of Fart is...The Silent But Deadly-perhaps the most 'aromatic' of all farts, nothing will bring a tear to your eyes faster than a SBD!
How funny is this? I have always thought farts were just silly...and they still are! I'm totally guilty of being 'the bachelor' and my mother is totally 'the muffler'. (don't tell her I said that). Which type are you?? hahahahahaha.(Care to share?) I was laughing so much that I had tears welling up in my eyes. I guess I just needed a good laugh for the day and finding this card totally helped me in that department. Hope you find it as amusing and makes you laugh out loud! elizinashe

Here on our left we have the lastest from French Designer Pierre Cardin. Clearly he's thinking forward and promoting a George Jetson look for our future. This is a totally rad coat (?) for those chilly winter evenings out on the town. Perhaps if you gentlemen out there would sport this latest and greatest you could be so honored to escort a hot young lady wearing the lastest from the London area.
Yes, we all can look like fools strutting our stuff around town proud as a peacock. We've got the new and groovy look for the future paired up with the traditional English over-the-top hat with a flaming hot sexy dress for a fashion forward night on the town for a nite of drinks, jazz and beat poetry.
But wait, don't forget the retro look! The 80s were always the best decade for clothes and hair to complete your look. It looks like the heavy-slash-punk rock make-up is making it's comeback as well. Oh isn't Fashion Week fun?? So much better than all this campaign and economy crapola. Take a day off from work this week and go shopping for some new duds. Be the first in your neighborhood to become a hot new fashion icon. (Or disaster.) At least it will give you something different to talk about at the water cooler. Now if I could just tag on David Bowie's song Fashion to end this post. (damn.) Maybe next time. elizinashe.

Poor guy. This looks like something Keith Richards would end up waking up in after a really long and heavily drug laden party. I hope he got paid some big bucks to wear a get-up like this. But what do I know. I live for my blue jeans and a good boob shirt. I guess I will always be behind the times fashion wise. Darn. elizinashe

There are more and more gas stations that are getting their supplies now. There were two close to my house that had gotten an afternoon delivery however traffic was backed up for blocks and quickly getting longer. I didn't have time to wait for the hour it would have taken me. By the time I even catch wind that so-and-so has gas, they're out by the time I'm off work or out of class. Geeze, is this ever so stupid. I'm working a night shift tonight so I hope that I can score some petrol on my way home and be one of those stupid early birds waiting in line while the station opens up for business. Yes, I know there was a gas crisis in the 70s but this is really stupid given the day and age. It is beyond stupid and it needs to stop. elizinashe

I have been keeping abreast of this hurricane season. I am thankful that Gustav lost some of his ommph, however we do have two more that are a-brewing which could effect our area in the long run. As always, it can jack up gas and oil prices and if we have some heavy rains or winds from anything it will certainly finish off some already sickly trees in my yard as well as topple my neighbors tree that's already leaning against another tree in the back boundaries of my yard. I can just see a domino effect happening here when it does fall if they don't cut it up soon. I really don't want to wake up to the sound of trees falling all around me or on top of my roof where I sleep!! That's not a very nice way to wake up.
I have been very curious about the Democratic and up-coming Republican convention speeches. This is such an important election, or at least I think so. I've been tuning in now that the time is getting much closer. I thought Obama spoke very well. I'm curious as to what this Alaskan governor chic has to say. She came out of nowhere...and I'm very curious as to what McCain has to preach about. This is quite an election coming about. I'm not a very political person but I find myself becoming very involved as to what these candidates have to say and what they 'promise' to do for our country. I am proud to have the opportunity to vote in this election. I will definately vote in this election.
Last but not least, my dear friends who live in California will be in town this weekend for a friend's wedding which means some wonderful girly time and some bonding time with their baby boy which I have yet to see!! He's about 4 months old now. I am looking forward to treking about our downtown area with one of my closest girly friends with baby in tow having some long overdue bonding time complete with hugs & kisses and baby poop as the added bonus. woo-hoo! I have finally made the dive into the digital world and bought a new camera so this will give me an opportunity to take a ridiculous amount of pictures to test it all out. Yea!! I can't wait...So that's the latest and greatest. On a trival side note, I've seen Mamma Mia twice now and I hope to catch it one last time on the big screen at the local Brew n View before it totally leaves town. I just loved it! I loved the 'escape' that it gave me, the humor was great and of course I was totally diggin' the music. I'm ready to make my escape to Greece myself...who's got their bags packed? ha-ha. If you haven't seen it yet then I highly suggest that you do if it's still playing in your area. It's just a fun movie. A perfect escape from life itself. We all need that every now and then, right? In the meantime, stay well, laugh out loud and don't forget to vote!! elizinashe

Now, on the flip side, I have cut way back on my normal smoking habits. It takes me about a week to smoke one pack of Camels compared to smoking a pack a day. I have the most trouble at night when I'm free from work and on my way home. Being that I live by myself I can do whatever I want in the house, therefore I smoke. If I go out to eat then sure enough I'm going to have a drink and a smoke. It's such a natural thing to do...drinks, snacks, smoke. I wish I could just let it go altogether and join the many who have become non-smokers. I want to be one of those people....why is it soo hard to let this all go?
I told myself that I wanted to be truly smoke-free by the time school starts back up which is next week. ( thus, the one week and counting). I didn't want to start off the new school year back in the habit of studying and chain smoking at the same time while pecking away at notes, reading and all that other crap that homework requires. I guess I'm getting a little nervous about starting school again and holding on to my trusty Camels makes me feel like I can do the class thing all over again along with a full-time job. eek!! Sometimes I wonder if I had a live-in or even a roommate if I'd feel differently about smoking. It's not always easy to come home alone, therefore that nasty little cigarette becomes your little friend. I still have a week before school starts. Maybe I will find a new friend to replace Mr. Camel. Wish me luck. elizinashe

I hope everyone's 4th was a good holiday. I worked all weekend so there wasn't much celebration in my corner of the world. I did manage to score a free wingback chair and a nice throw rug from the nurse I had worked with this weekend. It was just stuff that she was giving away and I happily took it off of her hands. She's a really nice person and I enjoy working with her. She's got a really strong sense of faith and so kind hearted. I always feel so blessed when I'm working with her. It makes me feel renewed in some sort of way that's hard to explain.
Other than that I just don't have alot of new news to talk about. I did see where the oringinal Bozo the clown had passed away. Sad. And I am proud to say that I was one of many kids who was on our own local Bozo Show. I remember wearing a long blue dress that was very 70s and being really hot from the camera lights shinning down on all the kids while filming. AND I won one of the stupid contests that they came up with. Me and some boy had to run back and forth like 3 times grabbing a ballon and pop the balloon by sitting on it and whoever popped 3 balloons first won the game. I came home with 2 new puzzles if I remember correctly. Silly, huh? What an era...I haven't seen anything close to a Bozo show in years. I guess video games such as Nintendo, Xbox and the Wii have replaced those after school cartoon shows and games. I wonder what will come next. Anyhow, that's the lame update in my world. I'll be posting my questions soon. Be prepared...haha! elizinashe

I've had a tree fall in my driveway while I was at work which turned out to be a 3 day ordeal to remove it all, I (and the nurse I was working with) was attacked by an 8 year old boy at 745am over a blood draw ( we won that battle), both of my cats have been sick each with a separate trip to the emergency clinic late at nite which always costs more plus the follow up visits with your regular vet and all of this happened within a 2 week time period with some sort of crisis every three days. And let's not forget some family drama which will add to the guilt I already carry plus I'm having some oral surgery tomorrow at 4pm. What a way to end the month,eh?
I wish I could say that I have been busy painting something weird and colorful, or playing with a new camera that I've always wanted, or loading up songs on an iPod which I don't have - anything but all this chaos. But alas, life has happened as it usually does, it just happened alot this month! What I can say is that I have continued to keep up the quitting smoking thing, making plans for a vision board as well as school (at least in my head) and have stayed at home watching movies instead of going out. Although I have spent alot of extra money this month that I really didn't want to spend I am thankful for the way things turned out.
I could have been home when that tree fell. Had I been at home, I wouldn't have a car right now. And even though the cats got sick at separate times I was lucky enough to had already been scheduled off the following two days after their visit to the emergency clinic therefore allowing me to monitor and medicate my kitties. Not that chasing down your cats to squirt meds down their throat is loads of fun or anything, but I'm glad that I wasn't at work knowing that they were sick and noone else to be around in case they took a turn for the worse. Yeah, it's been a stressful month but I'm glad it wasn't any worse than it could have been. Regardless, I'm ready for July and hopefully it will be a better month. Glad it's almost over. elizinashe

I did go to a birthday gathering today for this lady who is the head cook at my local restaurant that I like to go to and hung out with some peeps for a couple of hours which was cool, but I still wasn't feeling the happy vibes. I'm feeling pretty lame. My planned weekend of fun turned out to be a weekend of blah. How pathetic. I hope tomorrow is a better day. I'm tired of feeling like crap. elizinashe

I'd rather eat chocolate and have a glass of wine instead of exercising. I'd rather write and fart around on my computer than study. I'd rather eat out than cook.( but that's rooted in my ridiculously small kitchen.) I'd rather check out the dollar bin and the clearance rack at Target than clean the bathroom. I'd rather travel and see my girls than work, but that's a big pipe dream... I'd rather keep blogging than do the sink full of dishes that awaits me. How do you make it stop? I know I'm not the only one. I'd like to know how badly others procrastinate so that I don't feel so bad about procrastinating myself. Anyone know of an elixor to 'cure' me of this ailment? Looking to be more productive, elizinashe :)

School is going well so far but I can't apply for the nursing program until 2009. Only because I screwed up on the math review on this placement test. You can take this test only once per application period which is really stupid given that there is such a high demand for nurses here. I'm afraid of running out of motivation with this school stuff. It's really hard to go back to school as an adult and work full-time. It's really a juggle with work duties, studying and all of that other adult like stuff such as laundry, cleaning(yuk), vehicle maintenance yada, yada, yada...I just want to run away to the Greek Isles with my girls and have some fun. I need a getaway but then again the finances come into play. Crap. Maybe one day...I'm just not feeling the good vibes right now. I'm usually naively optimistic. Part of my charm I suppose. I just want to get out of this funk that I'm feeling. It sucks and I'm tired of feeling this way. elizinashe
