Many Moons Ago

29 May

Wordpress moons

 

Many, many, moons ago I posted a Missed Connection ad in Craigslist. Do you guys remember? If not here is the link to that post . Well it turns out that one the many gentlemen who were gracious enough to take the time to respond found out that I had written about my Missed Connection ad and that I had shared his response on my blog.

His response to my Criagslist ad:

Not wanting to lose that special connection we once had he decided to leave me a comment:

Could it be that even after all this he is still interested? Should I stop shaving and let my fur start growing out? After all, he does seem to have a sense of humor and isn’t that what every girl wants in a man? Maybe….. jusssssst maybe he is my Mr. Right or perhaps after I post this I will mysteriously  disappear and will  never be seen or heard of again.

Just in case :/ someone check up on me in a month or so.

Mr. Nottafastguy kudos to you for having a sense of humor and I promise this is the last time I mention you. Unless you decide to reply to another one of my missed connection 🙂 Bwahaha Bwahaha

I just don’t learn 🙂

Wicked A Wickedly Awesome Musical

24 Jun

Witchy-Secrets-wicked-6345797-1024-768

Yesterday my daughter and I had the pleasure to enjoy our very first musical! Our choice was non other then Wicked which is playing at the San Diego Civic Theatre, from June 20 to July 15.

Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED, is the untold story of the witches of Oz.

Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One – born with emerald-green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. WICKED tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, and how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. 

We had the time of our lives I can’t stop raving about it, the lights, the costumes, the songs, the music everything was amazing! If you have the opportunity to watch this musical I highly recommend it. The only thing I will complain about are the prices for their merchandise.  Plus the people who were sitting behind us kept complaining about not knowing that it was a musical and they couldn’t make out the words. Oh well maybe next time they should read the description of the show first.

Needless to say both my daughter and I are now fans of musicals.The next musical I’d like to watch is Mama Mia but my daughter says we first must go see Phantom of the Opera, we shall see about that. Sarcastic smile

I’m sharing a couple of pictures from our trip to San Diego and of the show sorry they aren’t the best pictures but we weren’t suppose to actually take pictures. 

 

 

P.S. I now see The Wizard Of Oz in a whole new way.

2012 New Year’s Resolution

31 Dec

Happy-New-Year-2012

As another New Year’s Eve is upon our doorstep, I sit here staring at my computer screen trying to think about something so epic to post on my blog about ending 2011 and the start of a new year. However, all I can really think about is how there’s nothing good to watch on Netflix anymore, wondering why the cat is trying to bite my leg, listening to Tinkle snore as she sits on my lap and typing random words on my keyboard hoping in the end it will all make some sort of sense.

Master keeps asking me what my New Year’s Resolution is going to be. I know we all vow to accomplish the usual cliché things: Lose weight, spend more time with the family, swear off smoking maybe even quite drinking. However, I don’t have a drinking problem! (I don’t drink before 5pm, (I’ve got klass people) and I only “friendly socially” smoke around other smokers. This got me thinking, what would be my New Years Resolution? So far after much thinking (I gave it a good 10mins) this is what I have come up with:

  • Watch more TV and or movies (you’d be surprised as to how much you can learn from TV shows, just the other night I learned how to make a shiv out of a toothbrush)
  • Try to drive at or under the speed limit ( only if there is a cop around and or if I’m not hungry or in a hurry )
  • Try not to worry so much (at least not in public, on twitter or Facebook)
  • Enjoy more of the sweeter things in life (cupcakes,chocolate, cupcakes, candy, cupcakes, cake, cupcakes… you get the idea)
  • Always check for toilet paper stuck to my pants as I leave the restroom ( I bet you aren’t surprised to know it has happened to me before! Actually more times than I care to mention)
  • Gain more weight (I’m starting to see my feet again)
  • Read some more (but I’m counting Twitter, Facebook and blogs as reading material)
  • Get more organized (I still cant find any matching socks in the morning)
  • Stop procrastinating (after 12/21/12, having made sure the world has not ended, I’ll do my Christmas shopping by Dec. 23rd and not on the 24th like I did this year)
  • Be a better role model for my daughter (she still can’t get the basic double flip single knee arched back cradle move on the pole)
  • Get more ME time (bathroom tweeting time doesn’t count anymore)

So there you have it! My New Year’s Resolution! But who are we kidding? You know I’m not going to make it past January…. or will I?

Now as we sit back and pretend that 2011 never happened and look forward to the Mayan apocalypse, I’d like to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year’s

I’d also like to hear what your New Year’s resolutions are .

A Hot Weekend

19 Dec

freesample

It was  just as regular Saturday morning. I woke up around 8, it was cold cloudy and gloomy, perfect sleeping weather, so I decided to go back to bed and take a 30 min nap. Hey!  it’s still early, it’s the weekend, I can splurge on a little extra sleep.  Fast forward  4 hours later and 60 text alerts later I find myself waking up once again. I swear I only closed my eyes for a second!

Why am I alarmed? Good question! Did I have an appointment I just missed? Did the turkey burn in the oven? Did my morning strip-o-gram come and go? No……. Its Saturday! And  Saturdays usually mean one thing, its Costco day! Better known to the uninitiated out there as sampling day! Now I don’t need to profess to all the practiced and proficient samplers out there that you have to get to Costco early in order to try ALL the variety of  samples. Also, especially important, avoid the crowds of amateur Hodge Podge samplers! There’s a real art to this people!

In a panic, much like Macaulay Culkin in Home alone when He realizes he is left all by himself, I clench my face , bellow a subtle” Nooooooooo!”and hurry to shower and get ready to meet up with my sampling partner in crime.  He is known in 13 states as the “Costco Casanova”, In Australia he is referred to as the “Auburn Adonis”, in Acapulco as “El Chulo de Costco”, he is even rumored to be the fabled “Spicy Kim Chi Swooner” of Costcos in Korea! Most of us know him as Master.  I quickly began to properly stretch and limber up for the activities ahead! Don’t want to repeat the sampling cramp debacle of 2008  again! Everyone knows not to swim for half an hour after eating, but nooooo! No one warns you to stretch before beginning sampling! Ha! That’s why this is not for the amateurs, timid or weak of heart! On a side note, the legwarmers and the “flash dance” outfit I wear to stretch and prepare still look ever as cool as they did in the mid 80’s! Awesome! just Awesome! dare I even say Legendary!  Ever so slightly in the background I hear the high pitched screech of a supercharger, then the thunderous roar of the engine…. Master is here! We first stop at the PO Box to see if I have any last minute Christmas gifts from my FB, Twitter or blogging friends (ehm! hint, hint).  I find an unassuming manila envelope and a pretty purple envelope (thanks Josef) waiting for me. Oh! As I glanced at the return address on the manila envelope, my heart skipping a little and my mouth began to slightly drool, it was the promised beef jerky from a fellow PGPeep.  It turns out I was one of the lucky 10 peeps to receive Mr. Keith BigBabyJesus Brower’s home made beef jerky. Since I wanted to savor every bite, and absolutely NO FOOD is allowed in the AMG, I decide (some might say FORECD with threats of bodily harm) to wait and not open my surprise beef jerky gift until I was safe back at the office.

Normally on a weekend, it takes about an hour just to find a suitable parking space. Add the fact that it is December and its one week away from Christmas, of course it’s a mad house in the parking lot! Not to worry, I have complete confidence in Masters driving ability. You need to have professional driving skills; I mean Grand Prix kind not just regular, I passed the DMV test so now I can drive skills. Reaction times must be swift, braking and acceleration response must be rapid. Eyes open for rogue shopping carts, unassuming people haphazardly waiting and blocking the street, cars pulling out without looking,  the  sense of danger on high alert, eyes wide open for that oh so prime parcel of parking space or any space at all for that matter. There! There! I shriek! A premiere parking space about to open by an elderly lady leaving.  Before I could finish the “…re” from me screaming “There”, Master had already gunned the engine, dropped into 1st gear and was drifting sideways in a billow of tire smoke into the parking space! Mere seconds after and inches behind the vacating car. Bravo! Bravo I say!

Once parked we went straight to the food section where the net haired maidens were distributing the various morsels of sampling delight. We have to make up for all the lost time! Me being the professional sampler that I am, I quickly mapped out my sampling route… Fruits, cheeses, guacamole, tamales, ham, calamari (that’s a tricky one… long lines for those), should I risk it? I turn and tell Master “Lets do this thing!” With the skills of a ninja I hit the first couple of stands. Not only do I get my own samples but I must also manage to get Master his samples.  Master knows the drill, he with his superstar looks distracts the ladies while I snatch the goodies. Boom! Done and done! Off we go onto the next table! Yet again, like deer in headlights, all the housewives swoon and look away to gaze at Master the Costco Casanova, Muha ha ha ha , I get two more samples!   All was going well until a lady bumps me with her shopping cart! Owwwwwwww! As I bend down to rub my ankle she quickly snatched the last two samples from the tray! Oh no you didn’t!!  Can this be! Could there be a woman unaffected by Masters remarkable charms? Can she really absorb all that enchanting alluring charisma and simply focus on the samples! How could this be! Is she far sighted? She cant see? Does she play for the “other team”? Or is she just a trained professional!

Imagine the rest of what happens in slow motion! I erect myself to full stature.  Somehow wind is blowing in my hair… My scarf flaps ever so rhythmically… I hear heroic music begin to play… I puff my chest and am about to yell like king Leonidas  “THIS…. IS…. PKITASS!!!!!!” and retaliate!  When all of a sudden everything went back to normal speed as the sweet aroma of a smoked salmon sample that Master quickly handed me calmed me down sufficiently to impeded my retaliatory actions! Never underestimate the power of smoked fish!  The lady smirked ever so condescendingly and left.  Perhaps I was unable to retaliate, but by gosh, if looks could kill! she would have been dead several times over. I think I have just met my Costco nemesis! Game On “Shin Hurting with Shopping Cart Sample Stealing Lady” or SHWSCSSL! Game On!

Back at the office, once everything was put away, I proceed to open my package. I was very very excited to discover what culinary delight was in store for me. I had heard so many good things about Mr. Brower’s beef jerky.  Remember the scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark when they finally open the Ark of the Covenant and all the ghost like entities escape and float around right before they turn demonic and kill everyone? Imagine the same thing… Just without Nazis or a bullwhip packing archeologist tied to a post.   As I slowly began  to rip the package open I immediately got a whiff of the meaty goodness that was to be in my mouth soon.  I had been pre-warned that it would be spicy and to take certain precautions while handling it.  Ha I say! Ha!  I’m of Mexican decent! I come from a long proud line of chili eaters. As a kid, we used to eat chilies as candy for Halloween!  How bad can it possible be? I take my first bite and proclaim with much bravado to Master, HA! It’s not as bad as they all said it would be.  However, just like in Raiders! the ghost angels quickly turned into demons and…. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! You have to give it a few seconds for All the wonderful spiciness to fully permeate your mouth! It doesn’t hit you right away, It actually lets you enjoy and savor the sweetness of the beef jerky first then when you least expect it BAM!

Over all it was a very tasty experience! So what if your mouth goes numb afterwards! Who cares if everything tastes the same the entire weekend! the taste of the  jerky makes all worth it.  Mr. Brower thank you for the treat, you can burn my mouth with your meat anytime.

My Back and Freaky Deaky Sex

8 Sep

Sometimes I suffer from back pain. Not excessively, but when I do it sure does a number on me. I  spend lots of time sitting  at a computer and a considerable amount driving long distances. It also doesn’t help that I have big breasts and will lift 40-50lbs boxes up flight of stairs if asked or needed.  This week I find myself  conquering back pain again. But I think I know the reason why I ‘m in pain no it’s not really because I got all acrobatic during sex nor did I decide to have a long weekend sexcapade. I think it was my trip to the beach on Sunday and the wave that made me it’s bitch. Yes, I got knocked down by a wave and somehow rolled around for a second just to come up from the water to be knocked out again! (Here’s a tip for you DO NOT turn your back to the waves even if the Lifeguard is cute looking  or to stare at  lifeguard with the  1980’s porn star brostache).  At the time my back didn’t  hurt but the next morning I was a little stiff and with slight dull pain but by Tuesday it was a full blown painful to stand or walk.  Its now Thursday and the pain continues, lets see how long I can take it before I give up and decide to go to a doctor.

Honestly I just wanted to remind everyone that I have big boobies Open-mouthed smile

A Tan and Freckles

15 Aug

heal-sun-burn-800x800

This summer I have found myself  going to the beach almost every weekend. It has helped me a bit to get out of my usual daily routine. But I have come across a small problem or two, you see I’m normally very light skin so I burn/tan very easily and have now found myself looking more like George Hamilton and Snooki then the Pkitass we have all come to know and love.  The sun also causes me to pop out more freckles, *pop* see there’s a new one now *pop* and there’s another one.

Even my sister this past weekend commented on how dark I looked and that I had way to many more freckles.

Evilo: Daaaamn……..pretty soon you’re just going to be one big freckle.

Me: Yeah, *sigh* thanks I love you too.

Yes, I lather on the sun block every time I go out. I’ve gone so far as to purchase a 100 spf sunblock for my face but I don’t think its working *pop* dam it! stupid freckles stop it already. *pop*

So does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get my regular skin color back? Maybe an old country remedy to remove freckles? Bleach, sandpaper, lemon? at this point I’ll try anything just don’t ask me to stop going to the beach.

*pop, pop, pop* I give up!

Kittens anyone?

2 May

How was everyone’s weekend? Great I hope.

Well I really don’t have anything interesting to blog about but I do have some cute kitty pictures how about I show you that.

TCI Master found some kittens outside about a week ago and brought them in so we could take them to the shelter. But it turns out that the shelter wouldn’t  guarantee  that they wouldn’t be put to sleep, since the kittens are so small still and need to be bottle fed we were told that they just don’t have the time or man power to take care of them.  Both of us being the animal lovers that we are decided to take on the role of foster parents.  How could we not?  Just look at them.

Fostering cats and kittens has its rewards as well as its drawbacks.

First of all we had to bath them several times since they were infested with fleas and we didn’t want the dogs to get fleas. Have you ever tried picking fleas from a wiggling kitty? Not as easy as the monkeys make it look. We couldn’t use flea dip since they are to young.

You need to have lots of patience and  the physical stamina to tend to their physical needs, which  include bottle-feeding newborns around the clock every two-three hours. I got the night shift which drove me up a wall. I felt my nerves starting to crack their little cries are torturing especially in the middle of the night. TCIMaster had the day shift also very draining but not as much as the night shift when one is trying to get some sort of shut eye.

Then there is the act  of making  them go to the bathroom, you have to stimulate them to pee. Mommy cats lick their booties to make them go. Let me tell you kitten booty not so tasty (yuck). They are finally starting to use a litter box so that good news, I don’t know how much longer my tongue was going to last.

They are now starting to run, slip and slide everywhere. They love following us everywhere and running in between our feet. Its gotten so bad that we end up performing acrobatic acts just to avoid stepping on them. Little buggers move quickly and they love climbing up our legs. Have you ever tried using the bathroom with a kitten trying to climb up your leg? Its not a pretty sight that’s for sure.  Needless to say our legs are full of tiny kitten scratches as well as our hands and arms. TCIMaster even has a scratch on his nose! 

They are taking over the place! They have even taken over the doggy beds, which makes for very moody pups. I’m sure the doggies will be happy to see them leave and get their bed back.

IMG_6310

They should be ready to be adopted in a week or two. Meanwhile we get the joy of watching them play and grow. If anyone would like one let me know, of course you will need to live somewhere in southern California and now I can hear them crying , its time for their next feeding and if I don’t hurry my legs and fingers will pay the price for not attending to them quickly enough.
