A Thanksgiving To Remember

Hello all my lovelies.  I hope all of my US stalkers had lots of love, lots of laughter, lots of food, and lots of blessings on your Thanksgiving holiday.

If you opted to brave the idiocy of Black Friday I also hope that you all came back will all of your limbs and no pepper spray or gunshots in your butts.

My Thanksgiving was more memorable than I would have guessed.  I wrote about it over on my LensTripping Photography page.

As it turns out we had more to be thankful for around here than we realized.

Thankfully yours...

Mugshot Monday 11/28/2011

Wow...this bunch looks like there was a threesome between the lady on the left, the guy on the left, and Lily Munster...the offspring of such a Ménage à trois?  The charming child in the middle...

Just plain....ummm...strange....

As always, you be the judge...

Media Hilarity - 11/16/11

    'Heroin for Sale' fliers lead to Portland raid    I.D.I.O.T.S   That's all.

    5 Stabbed at 'Welcome Home from Jail' Party    And really...who can be surprised that this is the environment where the person who went to jail hails from.

    Wild ride for Teamster in a toilet    I'm sorry....this just makes me laugh.  Talk about being caught with your pants down.

    Man Allegedly Beat Woman with Frozen Armadillo    Somehow, knowing that this is in Texas, just doesn't really surprise me.  I'm slighly more disturbed by the fact that someone would have a fucking FROZEN armadillo within reach.  Hard shelled rats.  Ick!

    House crashes into Ferrari F355 GTS    How, exactly is this possible?  This particular house doesn't even have wheels?  Do the parents to witchcraft?  Can they make their house float?  And besides, what did the Ferrari do that the house would want to crash in it?

Hey! Look At Me! Shameless Self Promotion Time!

Ok...so Tuesday's around these parts have pretty much fallen by the wayside.  It's not my fault.  The husband him is a brutal slave driver when it comes to work and *gasp* hard labor.  Shit.  I hate hard labor.  It interferes with my ability to properly produce flab in my ass.  *sigh*  I live such an abused life.  *snort*


In case you missed out on the ginormous announcement, my new photography website is up and running.  I've been trying to write at least one blog post a week.  It's hard to blog once a week when you actually need to think of something to say.  =)  Especially when, like me, you tend to read a post to death for a couple hours before you actually post it because you want to make absotively sure that the bloody thing doesn't make you look like an illiterate douche-ess.  It hasn't really worked that well as I've managed to find gaffs in posts after I've hit the "publish" button.  I actually blame that bit on WordPress.  I'm positive that once the "publish" button is clicked it says, "Muwahahaha...let's fuck with her" and then proceeds to change some small piddly shit thing like "the" to "thee".  I swear WordPress makes the fucking insane autocorrect on my cell phone look like an Ivy League scholar.

Drop by for a visit.

You are all invited.

You will need to bring your own refreshments though as the refrigerator hasn't been delivered yet.  Suck it up!

Have a snoop.

Leave a comment.

Also, the site has a badge.  Look to the sidebar.  Over there.  NO!  *face palm*  Over THERE!  Ok.  Well maybe down a little bit.  No!  Not that far.  Back up.  Up.  Ok...THERE!   See?  I have it there for your viewing pleasure. So if you feel a wild hair wiggling loose that tells you to add the code to pimp my site....follow it's advice.  No really.  Follow it's advice and I won't tell the guys with the white hug yourself coats and the padded van where you live.  =)  I await your request for the badge code.  =)

Here's the latest blog post....  Rest Your Head In The Clouds   Go read it.  You know you want to.  Did I mention "Leave a comment?"  No?  Ok.  Leave a comment.  I suck at subliminal messaging.

You can also like my photography Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter and on Google+.  Pick a combination, any combination...you are invited everywhere I am.

Oh...and because this happens to be a blog post about shameless self promotion I'm throwing in an obligatory photo.  Oh stop groaning.  My pictures aren't that bad.  The voices in my head tell me every day that I'm bloody fucking awesome.  Well, actually maybe it's more like every 3rd day.  The other days they are suspiciously quiet.

Whatever.  Here's the picture.  I've been trying for a really long time to get this shot, or at least a shot on the camera that matched that I had in mind.  I finally got it.

Media Hilarity - 11/9/11

    Uranus takes a pounding more frequently than thought    You people do realize that I don't *always* read the articles attached to the title, right?  This is the perfect example of why...  =)

    Fake Doctor, 81, Offered Door-to-Door Breast Exams    Again, this is another one.  I'm afraid that reading any further would cause nightmares.  =)

    Snellville cop gets drop on alleged gas station bandit    However, knowing that I rarely ever read the articles...THIS one I really, REALLY suggest you read.  I promise it's worth it.  =)

    Man had only '2 pizzas to drink' before driving into ditch    Ummm...yeah!  *rolls eyes*

    Man jailed after trying to turn faeces into gold    Fuck me!   If this guy comes up with a viable recipe for this I am so buying it!!!!!!!

Happy day, folks!

Mugshot Monday 11/7/11

Ok...so I know that I've been missing for a little over a week, and I'm behind on getting today's post up.  However, I've been up on my roof helping the husband him finish the roofing on our patio roof.  I have the sore body and enough roofing cement on my hands it's kind of a miracle that I'm not still stuck on the roof.

On the upside, the roof is mostly done.  At least done enough to handle the rain we have right now, and, right now, the patio is dry as a bone.

Do you hear that?  It's the angels singing.

We still have more to do since we ran out of roofing cement with about a foot and a half to two feet left to do on one of the seams.  We'll just have to wait for things to dry out and finish up the touchups on the relatively nice weekend that we are supposed to have.

Why do I tell you this?  It's because there is a chance I might go missing again until this stupid thing is finished.  So consider yourself warned.  However, since I was missing for a week and there wasn't any sort of uprising while I was away I think I'm fairly sure no one really cares.  =)

Ok, so on to this week's genius.  This week's genius comes to us from my sistah from another mother (I seem to have found a lot of those since I entered bloggy land) Lisa Brandel of both The Widow Lady and Art And The Human Condition.

Lisa had posted this mugshot and article on my FB wall saying that it was not only one of the best mugshots she'd ever seen, but also one of the best closing lines of any article she's ever seen.  She couldn't be more right.

:: Warning ::  Since most of you have the same sense of humor as I do, it's highly advisable that you be sitting down and clear your breathing passages of any food or drink prior to actually reading the article.  After this patio roof...I can't afford hospital bills or to replace any equipment that gets mucked up or shorted out.

As always, you be the judge.
