Complimentary Nuts..

Complimentary Nuts..

~~~ So Yesterday was fraught with laughs, lies and loitering. I was stuck at court for the whole damn day to present testimony regarding a car accident I was involved in almost two years ago. It is quite annoying to have to do this but the insurance companies insisted on battling it out in court therefore I was dragged there kicking and screaming. Whilst there this happened: 1.  I discovered that both the attorneys and the Magistrate write down your testimony as it happens – so you have to talk reallllly slowly with many pauses between as they pen their fastest. 2.  I was reminded that not every -one knows Left from Right.. 3. My attorney refused to believe I am 40 and warned me that Perjury is a criminal offense ..lol! Flirt much? 4. I laughed and...

Shared Regrets…

Shared Regrets…

~~~ I have made many mistakes in life, enjoyed most of them..learnt valuable lessons from all of them. But if there is one thing in life that I regret the most, it is studies. Or the lack of it. Not just my lack of enthusiasm during school but my lack of attending University/College. Even though I went back years later and did several courses on Computer Technology, I feel regretful at not being a student at Uni and really just being a student of life. It was not easy doing studies part time while working odd jobs to pay for it PLUS still be a mom to two small boys, but as I was late in realizing the importance of education, studies and paperwork to back up that you have the knowledge. This was my price to pay. I keep telling my kids that there is plenty of time...

Babies are not Bandaids

Babies are not Bandaids

~~~ There are two men in my life whom I will remind often how they came from mommies vagina. The fact that I had C sections with both of them is not the point…. My boys  drive me crazy, they are insensitive idiots when they want to be, drive me fucken insane, the reason mommy drinks, and most of all, they are my reason for living, the sunshine in my day and I love them with all my heart and soul. It is important that I mention that I am no longer married to their father, with their dad winning asshole of the year for the last 40 years or so.. I felt it difficult to stay and remain intact. How I made it through in the beginning is a mystery to me. A lot of it was done with the help of my Mom. She was my sounding board for the really tough times. Even though...

Santa Shoebox Project 2014

~~~ When I was little, about 5 years old, Christmas was held on the rooftop of Flamingo Court with all the other underprivileged kids of the building. I was one of them. We were blessed by a local church outreach program and they handed out a pressie for each and every one of us. I treasured my Teddy with all my heart and soul for many many years, until it fell apart from all the love. I am not sure what happened to put us in that position all those years ago, because shortly afterwards we moved to a lovely house with dogs and a fence and and and. I am the youngest of too many kids and in hindsight  I think my parents were probably going through some tough times for a period back then. Here I am today, and that moment of kindness has stuck with me. So last year...

Dragged out …

Dragged out …

~~~ It is has been a very trying period for me. The past few weeks have had me questioning life, faith, humanity and most of all people. People are the biggest disappointment ever. This is not news to you, I am sure. But even I could not slap on a smile to hide my true feelings of distaste, annoyance and plain disgust for it all. It was no ONE thing, In all honesty, I cannot even begin to pinpoint the moment that made me so bitter,angry and retreat within myself, licking my wounds and refusing to engage. The change in me was so subtle, yet so swift. The dark cloud has been following me everywhere and when my body succumbed to the flu a week ago, I dare say it did it with open arms because at least there was an excuse for not being forced outside. But it is time...

Fell off the bed…

Fell off the bed…

~~~ ..bumped my head, and couldn’t get up in the morning. Wondering about like a lost fart, unsure of my connections to people, places and life <- This is me, right now. and that’s not all folks, I am doing stupid shit, saying stupid shit and even thinking about stupid shit.. all while not sleeping proper and craving chocolate. Had a most unusual outburst at the GP yesterday while my son was getting checked out. GP asked how everything is.. you know, being polite. Obviously I am forced to say something retarded back at him. …I did not disappoint. I start laughing and said ” Besides the fact that I hate waking up and sometimes wish for death, all is good” Now WTF possessed me to say this? To a random question, in front of my son...

Samsung Microwave Review – #MissionSamsung

Samsung Microwave Review – #MissionSamsung

~~~ Mission Report Over the past few weeks, I have put the Samsung Microwave Smart Oven through a serious of tests, over and above the challenges given to me and the results were exceptionally pleasing. The first challenge put to me by Samsung, was the Pizza Challenge. This was a HUGE hit by the menfolk, who absolutely loved the pizza. They were very impressed by how crispy the crust was. Crispy Crusty Pizza is not what you normally expect when cooking in a microwave. Of course, I enjoyed trying the auto fermentation feature when making the dough, having never made pizza dough before, the Auto Fermentation feature halved the prescribed resting time. This time saving feature is very important when confronted with hungry wolves, of course. . The second challenge...
