.......I AM WOMAN...HERE I ROAR.......

Holy shit! I came waltzing in and checked my emails and had 121 emails...so uh....guys? until I get a computer at the house...can we hold off on the jokes, cute pictures, and silly stories ..other wise my tits will really be dragging trying to keep up with my comments and the forwards..
I am a happy fucking camper...the cowboys won on turkey day which made my thanksgiving a wonderful day...the dinner at Kathy's was super..first thing I did out of the chute was burn myself on the electric oven...I hate electric ovens...big ole ass ugly burn too..have been soaking it in aloe vera from my plant..it helps, but still looks ugly...Kathy out did her self..she had a turkey, one of those spiral hams, rolls, pea salad, mac/cheese,green beans with those onions casseroles(ick), potato salad, mashed potatoes,(kids all like different potatoes), vegetable platter with dips, and assorted pies, cookies, cheese cake, and brownies...I made 3 pumpkin' tarts, 3 chcocolate cream tarts, 2 pecan pies and the mac/cheese..was up all night baking..eveything was terrific..they had yellow tail wine(austrailian) and Jenny brought a bottle of sparking non-alcoholic grape something..which would have been great but the carbs were as much as a plate of mac/cheese..but didn't want to tell Jenny as she was so pleased with herself for thinking of me..so I keep watering it down till it was grape water..ha...they were going to see happy feet right after dinner and I opted out as I had to run back to West and watch the cowboys kick the shit out of Tampa Bay...oh the Goddess is on a roll and so is Tony Romo...hot damn...so all and all it was a wonderful day...I took the back roads to Waco so I wouldn't have to fade all the traffic..only took me 20 minutes up and 15 back..
I have been missing phone calls all over the place...and Nancy finally got in touch with me and is going to clear her lap top and have windows put back on and send it to me in a few weeks..which is so wonderful..I don't know if I will be able to afford a new computer or one at all..,but hopefully I will be able to come up with the $50 that it will take for them to clear her laptop..she says not to worry about it..but I have to..it's part of my job..
This saturday the water heater went out and I got my utilities from the leaks and the faulty water heater problems...water bill doubled...and the gas bill quadtrippled..went from $20 to $111.00...and the water heater went out this past Saturday and have to get a new one..so things are going to hell in a handbasket..fuckity fuck fuck fuck...plus need tags on the truck...as my sweet dear departed mother would say..."I don't know if I should shit or go blind."...
Thanks to all of you for the thanksgiving wishes, pats on the ass and good wishes..but one good thing has happened..thanks to the government...I am not poor ..I am finacially challanged..
I am looking into to getting into one of those government rental places.. they have one here in West and it is really very nice..mostly old farts like me on limited incomes...I could get a one-bedroom for about $145.00 and only pay the electric bill..plus phone. which means I would have electric stove..arg.....fug...!
plus it is only about 300 yards to the library..could walk to it every day..great excercise..
and would not be so poor at the end of the month..having to give up my home after 13 years is hard to swallow..but so is having a $719 check and rent and utilites coming to over $500...am going to pick up a application for apt..and talk to E.and J...explain to her that it is an uphill climb and too fucking old to pull my fat ass up that hill every month...would like to go to bed at night and not suffer panic attacks the first 3-5 hours...it has been hard to keep my shitty grin from sliding off my face...
well, I am going to try and catch up on some of your blogs...I have missed you all sooo much...I was going through major withdrawl since wed...man..I kept getting up and booting up the computer and then going 'fuck..it's broke..damn..I forgot.' I don't think I had any idea just how much I depended on you all to make my day...there is a huge fucking hole where my heart is...and you all filled it ..each and every day...may the Goddess bless and keep you safe..or if not safe..least see that you have beer money...

That's it! No more holidays!
The Library needs to stay open 24/7 until you get a working computer again.

An Apartment complex with old farts? They will never be the same. Remember some of them have weak hearts.

I know what money troubles can do to you. Nancy is being great. I was wishing I had one to send that would be good enough but most of the stuff I have is junk.

Glad you had a good Turkey day. I watched most of that Dallas game. I kept thinking that you and Babs would be in hog heaven.

I'm surprised you haven't rigged a door at the library so you could sneak in at night and use the computer.
That would look good on a police blotter.

Ya know, that's not such a bad deal...some of those old fart apartment places are pretty crazy...! I used to paint one, did so for like 12 years, lots of wonderful characters and I enjoyed going there. Anyhow I figure, if youy're going to rent, spend as little as possible....will you be able to take Annie?
And I hear you on electric stoves, I have one with the smooth plate thingies, hate it. But I don't cook enough to make it worth getting another at this point.
Hang in there and remember Big Brother and Homeland Security will be watching over your shoulder at the library....will this mean you'll have to behave? Say it ain't so! Haha.
OK I promise, no more silly email forwards.

I can see all the horny old men and scandelized (sp?) old biddies now! JS, you'll take the place over and be running it in 3 weeks, tops.

We have lots of those type apartments around here, some of them are so nice that I keep trying to figure out a way to move in myself. The outdoor concerts I go too are surrounded by "adult complexes" and you see all the residents sitting out on the balconies and back porches enjoying the music.

I'm sooooooo glad to see your doing alright. I was having Jackie Sue DTS

I'd move into the apartment if I were you. There are some super nice ones here in Hell...brand new with all the latest stuff in them.

Right next to the library makes it even better! :)

glad to hear that you are not poor..but financially challanged...wait a min...is that a step up or down from poor? I know about $$$ problems and it sucks...hoping all goes well with the rental sounds like a great idea...roof over your head and food every month...interesting concept :)

tina said...

financially challenged...I like that...I'll be that way till the day I die, I suppose...lotta debt - sigh

well glad you had a good turkey day and hope you can get a nice apartment :)

Babs said...

One thing about apartments... if something breaks, you don't have to fix it. No mowing and a/c that works in the summer. Plus walking distance to the library rocks!
Didn't know if I should comment of not! Screw it, you can have another email.

Well if that isn’t nice about Nancy and her laptop fucked if I know what is.

I’d rather eat and have some quality to life than struggle to own my own home...that being said I will own again.

I agree with the BamaBugg, you’ll soon be having them in shipshape order...they won’t know what hit ‘em. Good Luck with the applying JS.

Sue said...

We've been missing you too!!! Bestest!

I'm making thanksgiving dinner today, wait a minute what day is it? The 28th so I'm only three days late, so what.

Jackie don't you worry about the 50 bucks, it's my gift to you, Merry Holiday Xmas. Or whatever the fuck you're supposed to say. My mother in law went to get her Holiday tree and she asked for a Christmas tree and the guy corrected her and said it was a holiday tree and all this crap confuses me because I don't want to offend anyone and shit is this America and is it a Christmas tree or a Holiday tree?

ANyway...

Love you. :)

Mimi said...

I will pray to the Goddess that you get one of those rental places!

I am glad I am not the only one who thinks "ICK" about green bean cassorle. People go nuts over that shit and I hate it. I like green beans, mushrooms, an donions. But that shit is nasty!

Hope that burn gets better soon!

nit wit: actually I have a key to the library...probably could get in anytime and no one would notice..but my luck I would get busted and I would rather do jail time then explain to Henrietta why Im in her library at midnight..ha well some of the apts are old farts and some in another section are needy families ..but dont think they allow them to mix..old farts are dangerous to young noisy kids..
carina: big brother is always watching me...I'm sure they have my email address and blog site on speed dial...
Junebugg: trust me ..I missed you all more than you missed me...and I like the idea of being within walking distance of the library..give me a good reason to get off my fat ass and walk...
big pissy: going today to get the application.was going to do it yesterday and just ran out of time..stayed up here 4 hours catching up on emails and doing my post...judas priest..
ol'lady: yup nice to know that I might actually have money left over at the end of the month...
tina:when i go get the application..going to ask her if I can take a peek at one of the apts.
see what they look like..was in one visiting a friend..but that was 20 years ago..
babs:yup...i like the idea of no yard to mess with...can just have a little garden of potted plants...
apos: I wonder if i can organize a poker game over there?
sue: thanks sue, I really missed you all..
nancy; ahhhh, your such a good friend....I will find a special book for you...and Bruce...maybe something for the new grandbaby..
these politically correct people and their happy holidays and holiday wishes, and holiday trees..make my holliday ass hurt..
mimi: the burn looks terrible but it's healing ..what happened is ..it blistered and then the blister tore and that really smarted...so just keep putting aloe vera on it..i stink funny and it is all gooey but it really works well...

Just a suggestion because we do miss you and love you, local computer places sometimes have or know of computers at good prices because a lot of young-ish men have to have the newest stuff to come out. They mostly live at home so they don't worry about money.So they have last year's PCU's just sitting around because they don't know anything about selling. I got several really inexpensive deals for friends that way. Another benefit is that these guys have few friends and are willing to help with tech support for cookies and kindness.
