Beer, Sweat And A Mixed Up Band Guy.

It's a good day today!

T has Graduated!

She should have graduated last year with Bean but you know having a baby kind of puts that stuff on hold but she did it very well! As Valedictorian she was very nervous but pulled off an inspirational speech and made people laugh at the same time. She walked proudly across the stage with Peanut in tow and excepted her new the stage...and running to the bathroom.

Hey a girl has to pee even at Grad!

Now let's back up a moment to my trip to her Graduation.

I had to Skytrain/bus to the theater where the ceremony was held so I ask to scoot out about 10 mins early and that was all good with the boss and then head to the Skytrain station. Now Burrard station always smells really bad to me. I call it Sewer Ass Station I think it's the mixture of all of the restaurant food smells. Anyway...I run down to the lower platform almost forgetting to do that because I usually head out on the opposite train to get the WCE home.

I get on my train and find a seat! Ooooo I felt like this was a good thing until Beer and Sweat guy sat down beside me. I'm thinking hopefully he'll get off in a few stops and I can breathe because I had about 20 I had to go through before I could get to the next leg of my trip. He was a quiet guy not ravingly drunk so I was alright and then...I don't even know what to call this guy but he's a larger fellow wearing an NY Yankees jersey and hat, board shorts, every finger had a large ring on it, a necklace made of thick silver links and a NY Yankees pendant as big as his fist, BRIGHT blue shoes ( you could see them from space bright ) with orange laces ( oh god really ) and headphones that covered his ears.

With that a newspaper...a newspaper I wanted to take away and beat him with because that's all he did for 15 stops was beat this paper across his thighs to the beat of whatever ( and I'm guessing but I think I'm right ) HEAVY METAL GUITAR LADEN music. I say this because a couple of times he pretended to play the air bass ( judging by his finger movements and positioning ).

So Beer and Sweat guy is clearly annoyed just as everyone else is and starts talking to the guy across from him that I'm pretty sure he didn't know and I'm wondering if there might be an intervention being planned as the both scoot forward and stare at Mixed Up Band Guy ( looks like a rapper but acts like a rocker ) and then the head banging against the door started and both men must have changed their minds and figured this was way too dangerous a task. Mixed Up Band Guy got off 2 stops before mine and just before he got up he appeared to straighten himself up and check his clothes  before he got off...?

The kicker for me to this whole thing is that when Beer and Sweat guy got off ( at my stop ) unnoticed by me as he stepped in front of me, he had rolling luggage...probably full of beer but still.

I got on the bus that has changed routes recently hoping that Sese was right as she instructed me to get on this bus to go to the Red Robinson Theater next to the Hard Rock Casino. The bus driver wasn't helpful at first but I made it before my entire family except for T and I thought they would be waiting for me to show up.

At least I can stay entertained!

Have a great week guys!

See Ya

My Kind Of Crazy, No Fear and No Procrastination.

Hello Lovelies!

I'm back from my Staycation and managed to stay successfully away from my Social Media except for the occasional Tweet! Yay me!

In that time I've decided that I'm officially crazy, brain scrambled crazy. Part of me was so bored and itching to do something exciting because life as I know it could be over at anytime!

I know, reaching but you never know...

Have you ever had so much you want to do all at the same time that you just don't know where to start?

 That's me from what to do around the house (PURGE EVERYTHING! DIG THAT UP! BUILD A GREENHOUSE AND FILM IT ALL!) to something crafty (BUILD THAT BIO-MECHANICAL ARM! PAINT THAT CANVAS! PUT SWEATERS ON THE DOGS, LAUGH HYSTERICALLY AND FILM IT ALL!) Among many, many other things that my brain runs through everyday.

Then do you hate it when something you want to do is put off because you need to do something else in order to do that first thing? Like money, incentive, purpose and a trunk big enough to hold a grown person with no trunk release?

Now the filming is just because I would like to document my kind of crazy for the grand kiddies and my kiddies in case they forget what I was like or need proof to put me in the padded room later on and come to think of it that's why I started blogging int the first place so that when I'm gone there is a record of my insanity...FOREVER! You want to know insanity? Re-making Poltergeist...that is insanity because you know that stupid clown is going to be so much worse than the original one.

(Oh and Craig...I'll go see IT with you as long as you are on one end of the theater down in front so I can see you coming.)

Where to start though? What to do and when to do it? Spontaneity or carefully planning? Can you do both? Ahhh but trying the new steps or jump right in?

I said last year was a year of Realization for me and this year is the year of Action maybe it sounds kind of like a midlife crisis yet it's more like a GET OFF YOUR ASS AND DO SOMETHING isis. That's where the stumbling block is though. I think about every aspect of everything before I make up my mind and I'm a classic Procrastinator. Well the kids are grown and having kids of their own, getting married and living their lives. They don't need me as much which is awesome and sad at the same time but that's what we do right?

Sooooo....why procrastinate? I'm going to try really hard to live the best way I can and laugh as much as I can along the way without stressing too much about the little things because it's the little things that piss me off and they always seem so much bigger than they are.

Just to go back to the sweaters on the dogs thing for a sec, that's because Whiskey's previous owner a good friend of ours that has passed away had a supply of clothes for him and he freezes as soon as you put clothes on him, he hates them and thus gets depressed and won't move... at all.

He just stands there...blinking in sadness while the others don't know what happened, just that he looks different so they stand there and stare at each other until something changes.

And as I just reread this and it appears like I had a sugarhigh or an IV of caffeine and considering how much sugar I take in my coffee it's probably that.

Now I'm sleepy, sugar crash on the way and hoping you guys have a great week!

See Ya

Up and Down, Up and Down but Green Waste Girl Wears the Crown

Hello Lovelies!

I'm working off 5 more work days and I'm on Vacation for a week! Woo Hoo! I'm a bit scattered today so bare with me.

So... somewhat happily I got sick this past weekend because really who wants to be sick in their vacation. let's get it over with now! I caught a cold ( thanks Bean ) last Thursday and have been fighting it for days now. The funny thing with colds though is how you are almost fully functional! For about a half an hour until you've depleted whatever energy you had built up.

The weather was beautiful on Sat and not too hot...until the fever kicked in but I managed to clean up somewhat and do some indoor gardening, in stages I would manage to trim and water a couple and then have to go sit down, get up plant a baby then go sit down, get up and clip a baby then go sit down, soak some dirt and so on went on like that all day but my 50+ houseplants were pretty happy to get some attention.

Sunday was also beautiful and although my cold felt better the migraine I got, didn't so again it was a day of things in stages and that day it was cleaning out the fridge. Not great to do with a pounding head like a tribal drum and sunlight stabbing through my eyes to my brain but I did it...sort of. Same sort of thing though open the fridge, take something out, throw it in the correct contraption and go sit/lay down and repeat.

 You know how things get shoved to the back of the fridge never to be seen again? I've seen them and it was scary so I called in reinforcements...Sese!

 Now Sese is the Green Waste Girl in the house. ALL HAIL THE GREEN WASTE BIN! because it gives those lost refrigerator items a place to be disposed and as she is a timid lil thing with everything else go figure that she has the STRONGEST stomach in the house.

 I can handle pretty much anything EXCEPT the GWB and why? Lo put it best...because... it... moves. That makes me want to jump out of my skin. I can't even touch the bin thinking about the things that hatch and grow in there ( I think I threw up a little bit ) but Sese the brave girl deals with it like a champ!

We agreed she needs a Cape...and maybe some tights and a staff or wand of worms or a head of lettuce!

I haven't posted the next part of my CF blog due to being sick but it's coming! I was doing really good at making sure there was something readable there every week but I'll get back into it this week.

Oh before I go! Guess who made an appearance and struck a pose for us...

The little Bandit is still around!

K guys have a good week!
See Ya
