Before the big monies came and shut them down

Is there anyone else who wants to give me hurtful news? Just to see if I can take it all in one week? That way, if I can't not one person could be blamed? Anyone?
Yesterday, K, told me that the officers at the PD here, don't like me as a rider, that they fight over who HAS to take me when I do a ride-along. Everyone knows my name WW as the girl who likes to do ride-along's and its a bad thing. I'd really like to know what was going through his head when he told me. I don't care if that's what they think about me (OK I really do), but I don't want to know.
Last year after doing my ride-along, I learned there's a 1 yr waiting period between ride-along's, I asked my friend B, why. He said it was because there was a rider none of the officers like coming on them, he said it wasn't me, but I'm thinking now, it is. I mean, come on, who's gonna come out and tell me they don't like me riding along?
Lucky for the officers, I have no desire to go on any more ride-along's anytime soon. That was a personal conclusion I came to last year after my last one.
And now, that I have a job, I can't even take the time to be hurt. Because we all know the world doesn't stop for anyone. I'd love to call in sick, but I know my boss has a dr's appt today, and is counting on me to be there.

Last week or so it rained very hard here. My neighbors have a little Pomeranian (sp?) and they recently cut its hair so it looks like a big Chiuahua (sp?). Anyways, the other day when it rained, it was outside in the pouring rain barking its head off, so I went over and rescued it, sticking it on our back porch and drying it off. We called the neighbors and left a message on their machine. I sat with Chewy (the dog) for 2 hours and then the rain let up and I had other things to do (and didn't want to smell like wet dog for the rest of the night), so I stuck it back outside. We haven't heard a thank you back from these people.
I saw Chewy out today after I finished the lawn and wandered over to say hi. He's such a cute nice little dog. Anyways I was thinking, the poor guy sits outside the whole time our neighbors are at work. He's a little yippy dog, you can't just stick it outside with nothing to do and expect it's going to be ok for hours at a time. You have to either get 2 dogs, or play with it.
Some people really need to research their pets before getting them.

Sorry, just had to rant.

Back when the old stuff was new

So, this weekend was the first time I ran into bitchy bikers. Me and dad had to go to the gas station to get some gas for the mower on Sunday. We're at the pump and these bikers roll up, the ones with the big cushy bikes, older bikers, guys with chicks on the back, all dressed up like they just got done with a ride. One of them rolls up behind me and dad like we weren't using the pump. I think he was trying to intimidate us with him being a biker and all. Yeah, good luck intimidating me buddy. Once I finished pumping the gas, I made a mess, so I was cleaning it up with the paper towels they have out there, and I asked one of the chicks where they had gone on their ride and she just ignored me. So much for the theory all bikers bond. I had one of my Harley shirts on, so my kitty was showing, so it was visible that I was a biker.
Maybe they thought I was just one of those people that wanted to be a biker and wasn't actually, I don't know. I've just never run into bikers so rude like that. Yes, I know they exist (thank you people), I just hadn't run into any. Oh well, I'm not gonna let 4 bikers ruin my thoughts about the rest of us.

This is what it costs to keep us free

UGH! What is wrong with the people of this country? Is it so hard to take an hour out of your day to honor the people who gave you a privilege to have this day off from work? Is it so hard to stop what your doing to watch a parade honoring them? To walk down to the cemetery and listen to a program honoring them? I don't give a damn if you agree with the war or not, that's not what today is about. These people died so you could have the choice of honoring them or not. Is it so hard to listen to the list of people in the armed forces that died in the last year? To listen to speeches honoring the dead? To listen to Taps played to honor the dead? And why the hell can't you turn your cell phones off for 30 minutes? Is anything that important that you need to talk on them during this time.
My parents and I went to the cemetery after the parade (which was pathetic, by the way, is it so hard to donate your time to walk in a parade honoring the people that gave you your freedoms?), and my parents decided they had to go home before the program was over. What's so important they couldn't wait for 20 minutes you ask? I don't know, when I got home after the program, they were sitting on the front porch enjoying the weather.
The people in this country are so full of themselves that they don't realize what happened in the past to give them to opportunity to do what they want on this day, to give them a day off from work. It's fucking wrong.

Arlington by Trace Adkins

I never thought that this is where I'd settle down,
I thought I'd die an old man back in my hometown,
They gave me this plot of land, me and some other men, for a job well done,
There's a big white house sits on a hill just up the road,
The man inside he cried the day they brought me home,
They folded up a flag and told my mom and dad, we're proud of your son

And I'm proud to be on this peaceful piece of property,
I'm on sacred ground and I'm in the best of company,
I'm thankful for those thankful for things I've done,
I can rest in peace, I'm one of the chosen ones,
I made it to Arlington

I remember daddy brought me here when I was eight,
We searched all day to find out where my granddad lay,
And when we finally found that cross,
He said, "Son this is what it cost to keep us free"
Now here I am, a thousand stones away from him,
He reconized me on the first day I came in,
And it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels, and saluted me.

And I'm proud to be on this peaceful piece of property,
I'm on sacred ground and I'm in the best of company,
I'm thankful for those thankful for things I've done,
I can rest in peace, I'm one of the chosen ones,
I made it to Arlington

And everytime I hear twenty-one guns,
I know they brought another hero home to us

We're thankful for those thankful for the things we've done,
We can rest in peace, 'cause we are the chosen ones,
We made it to Arlington, yea dust to dust, don't cry for us,
We made it to Arlington

Because I can't say it any better, go here.

It's more than a day off from work

Please take a moment to remember the people who died to keep us free while you're out grilling with your families.

can't you see what the world has done

I was doing my stats this morning, and some of the shit people look up, and then come to my site for is just wrong. I've had quite a few searches for:

Reba's boob job - Ya know from the ACM's last week,

Thank god for turnip greens - which isn't even the real line, the full line is "Thank god for good directions and turnip greens, now I'll get all the searches for that

Cops - from various cities and various officers, I don't see the need to list them all

Derrick Pendergrass - there've been quite a few for him lately, so he gets a separate line ;) (sorry Officer Pilutik)

dirty old men - or some form of that, those searches have been down lately, most likely cause I'm not up in the top results, now I've changed that.

Jason Aldean - different renditions of him, mostly his cowboy hat, though I did have one for his tattoo last week, hell I didn't even know he HAD a tattoo

The strange ones I've had recently:

cops cameraman - like I really know anything about that, like I even give a damn, try the cops website

how to Blow Myself - and thank you so much for coming to my site to find out, jackass

sunglasses worn by Carrie Underwood in before he cheats video - why the hell would you care about that, if you're gonna be looking about stuff in music videos, how about the car in Red Dirt Road by Brooks N Dunn, or the car in Wherever You Are by Jack Ingram, focus on the important stuff people (by the way, if anyone knows what those cars are, I'd be interested in the answer)

bleeding beneath the toe - I don't think I'm the person you should be taking medical advice from, one of my readers maybe, but certainly not me. I'm guessing the medical community would frown upon my response to any kind of accidents: if it hurts, ignore it; if it's bleeding, apply pressure, elevate, and ignore it.

And of course quite a few for song lyrics, also don't feel like listing them all. As much as I love getting visitors, I know most of these people, if not all will not return to read me again.

When I was checking out my stats I was listening to the top 40 countdown (?), mostly because it was the only station without church crap, or nascar crap on, also cause there was a good song on it when I was passing by. Anyways I used to listen to this when I was younger and Casey Casem (sp?) was doing it, now its Ryan Seacrest, who's stupid thought was it to pass it on to him. It's so wrong. Another good thing ruined due to someone's idiotic idea.

Thank you blogger for your autosave, its so nice on days like this when my IE is being an ass, this way I don't lose anything.

I get to go on my walk today, I'm very happy about that. When I first started working I was going to go on it once I got off, but my feet are so tired from standing for 5 -6 hours, all I wanna do is come home and sit. Hopefully, I'll either be standing less, or my feet will get used to standing and I can do my walks more often than the 2 days I have off. Cross your fingers.

You're part of my entity

Seems pretty typical, that the one time I don't watch Cops, one of my favorite hotties was on it. Sigh.
Now, because I haven't given one of these in weeks and Officer Pilutik is one of my FAVORITE hotties, he's adding it to his shelf, just 'cause he was on, how's that for cool.

Very sorry I missed you, Officer P ;)

She's a product of a me generation

So, I was thinking the other day (because those damn tampax upgrade commercials are always on Yahoo), my upgrade now is my friend K in his truck. I was also thinking, I don't really care if there's anything there, it would be nice but I am very content just hanging out. It's nice to have someone thats free when you call them up and wanna do something. :) We went to Pirates of the Caribbean 3 last night, K, me, Karli and Karli's friend Jason. It was nice. Got there kinda late, so sat in the 2nd row, kinda too close for me. There were a couple scenes where they flipped the boat upside down, and the whole screen seems to flip with it, that was a little much for me. Then we went out to a couple bars afterward (shouldn't have done that), do all guys get annoying once they get alcohol into them? Then K and I came back here and watched SWAT (also shouldn't have done that), I had a little nap in the middle of it. Hopefully I can stay awake all day today, I don't think it will be much of a problem, just gotta pack a lot of pop, I have a sandwich left over from supper, and I can rustle up some desert. (Happy sigh).
Hopefully, this will be a new theme here, where I'm just happy with everything that's going on in my life.

Why is it, every time I go to the movies, all the previews look good? The Golden Compass is coming out, its a trilogy (in books, one movie), that I heard was supposed to come out this past Jan, so I've been waiting and it looks great. Die Hard 4, no explanation needed. Ratoulli (probably spelling that wrong), cg'ed rat chef in France, National Treasure: Book of something. Also, Ghostrider is coming out on DVD June 12th, I'm very excited about that. Remember this? I loved that movie.

Also, I heard this song the other day and made me think about someone, that I'm finally over. I deleted a message I received from him on Valentine's Day 2 years ago the other day. That's gotta be a pretty good sign I'm over him right? I'm bolding the lines that relate to my 'relationship' with him.

There is No Arizona by Jaime O'Neal

He promised her a new and better life, out in Arizona

Underneath the blue never ending sky, swore that he was gonna
Get things in order, he'd send for her
When he left her behind, it never crossed her mind
There is no Arizona
No painted desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

She got a postcard with no return address, postmarked Tombstone
It said "I don't know where I'm goin' next but when I do
I'll let you know"
May, June, July, she wonders why
She's still waiting, she'll keep waiting 'cause

There is no Arizona
No painted desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

Each day the sun sets into the west
Her heart sinks lower in her chest and
Friends keep asking when she's going
Finally she tells them don't you know

There is no Arizona
No painted desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist,those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

He promised her a new and better life,out in Arizona

Cupid works for the devil

So, I was mowing my lawn today, and when I got out there, there's 2 people standing there talking. One on the sidewalk and one in the middle of my lawn, then they got pissed at me because I was mowing my lawn. Someone's gotta explain the logic in that to me, cause I don't understand
I think I have a lack of sleep hangover, if that makes any sense. Sunday night, my friend Kevin came over about 10, we watched a movie and continued to talk until 5:30 AM. So yesterday, after he left I went to bed, got about 4 hours of sleep. And then was going to go to bed at 10, until Kevin called me and we talked about an hour. And today, my body is just tired. Course pair that with the fact that I haven't had anything substantial to eat since about 7pm on Sunday. And of course George has been visiting since Friday.
After I mowed the lawn, I was eating ice cream. I forgot how good ice cream tastes. I haven't had any in awhile due to the fact my freezer won't work. But I'm getting a new fridge today, so maybe that can change. And maybe the stuff in my fridge will be cold. Not that it was really warm, just not so cold. I was talking with Karli yesterday, and she was commenting on the fact I seem to be getting a lot of stuff lately. It's not my fault everything seems to be at the end of its life. Course we've lived here about 21 years, so I guess that's a good life for a lot of things. Unless you're a person.
Speaking of new stuff, I finally made the appointment to get my countertop in for my bathroom sink. The sink/vanity has a 3 to 4 inch gap on the north side between the sink and the wall. Now we all knew that was gonna be there (I was informed after the sink was put in), but the counter/sink is supposed to go over to the wall, there's supposed to be a spacer stick put in to match the cabinet and there's supposed to be side splashes to match the countertop on the walls, so it kinda looks built in. Yes, I will post a pic, when it's done. I'll stick 2 up so you can see the difference. Hopefully that's supposed to be done Thurs before I go to work. Cross your fingers and hold your breath.
So I broke my granite table yesterday. I was upset (no idea why) and I wanted to beat something, but not fuck up my hand (since, I seem to be real good at that), so I took one of my many empty alcohol bottles and was trying to break it (cause that would show I was really pissed). Glass bounces off of wood, and granite, who knew? I didn't do too much damage, I just have to rotate the top, so you can't see the gouge in the side. I figured the table would break teh bottle not the other way around, oh well.
And of course on my walk (before my fun with the bottle), I got some new blisters, which also don't make sense in the world of logic. My toes were rubbing together, who gets blisters from their toes rubbing together (other than me, cause I'm just talented, or fucked up, pick one). By the time I got to city hall, one of them was bleeding, city hall is about 3 blocks from home. And it took me 15 minutes to get home. Now that's fucked up.

Tavern on Main

Cincinnati, OH:
I remember why I love watching Cops so much (other than the hottie cops), you don’t need a scripted movie to get entertainment.
The guy replies “That ain’t even my plate” after being pulled over by the officers. And yet, he’s driving the car, might not be your plate, but it’s on the car you’re driving, so they’re treating it like it’s your car.
And its always fun to see the reaction of someone being tased.
Palm Springs, CA:
In this one, the officers were called to a hotel room because of an excess of phone calls, so they look in the room and there happens to be a crack pipe under the mattress. There’s a chick and a guy, the guy says he just got out of the shower, he says “Smell my body” Yeah, like the officers are gonna do that, his hair is dry, and then he starts saying he just walked in from work. Then they start saying the people didn’t clean the room before they came in, yeah, sure. And the whole “I swear to God” so obviously they’re telling the truth.
Once again, I feel sorry for what the cops have to go through.
Hamilton County, OH:
Goddess and I were talking about how this couple should be hauled off for wasting the officers’ time, I was saying how many prisons there would be if everyone who wasted cops’ time were arrested. It would be so much better if there was a fine. Then the officers could say “I have to write you a $200 citation for wasting my time” wonder how much money police depts could make off that. My guess, they wouldn’t be short on money.

Throw your suitcase in the back

I know in the past I've had a couple of depressing posts. Well, I am absolutely happy right now, yeah a few things could be better, but this is as great as my life has been lately. I haven't been this happy since I was a little kid and didn't have to worry about anything.
I have a job I like, I have great friends, I have a great guy I hang out with. I am very happy.
Yes, I'm getting used to the job, but I think in a few weeks once the grand opening has happened and we get more customers in the shop, it's going to be a little more relaxing. Yes, my friends and I haven't really seen each other in awhile, but we have been able to talk, and that's better than nothing. Yes, there might be more going on with this guy I hang out with, but I'm very happy just getting together for food, talk, or a movie.
I have had some pretty rough days in the past weeks, and it just feels so good, to have all this stuff happening at the same time, and I'm just so happy about it.
I'm content, and that hasn't been happening for me lately.

Come on down

So, the Academy of Country Music Awards are on tonight. And of course I'm watching it. Y'all get to enjoy my commentary of it.
I was disagreeing with Goddess (in my mind) the other day about Reba getting a boob job, but shit you can sure tell it tonight. She's wearing a nice V-neck dress, and she kept turning so everyone could get a nice side view of her larger chest. It wasn't like spilling her boobs out for the world to see, but you could definately tell they were larger.
And then Tracy Lawrence and some news anchor came out to present song of the year (I think?) and apparently the country music folk haven't learned from Kenny Rogers that plastic surgery is BAD. He looked about as bad as Kenny, there's no way he aged that way naturally. Y'all should take after Johnny Cash, sure he didn't look great when he got older, but you could tell it was him and natural, he didn't look like he had to smile all the damn time.
George Strait won with Give it away, and I swear he's shrinking, he's an easy 6 foot (or he was), you used to be able to stick him next to Alan Jackson and they were about the same height. Of course, he also seemed kinda disoriented.
And it's nice to see that Miranda Lambert is all grown-up and wears short dresses, with deep cut necks.
Album of the year was Some Hearts by Carrie Underwood. I was thinking Hillbilly Deluxe by Brooks N Dunn should have won.
Little Big Town finally received the award for New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year
I like the duet of Reba and Kelly Clarkson singing Because of You, it sounded great.
And once again, Brooks N Dunn won Top Vocal Duo. No big surprise there, it so needs to be renamed the Brooks N Dunn award on both awards shows (this and Country Music Association).
Entertainer of the Year is Kenny Chesney, another not so big surprise.

Outplay, Outwit, Outlast

So, I'm watching the final Survivor: Fiji. If you watch Survivor, you know the"tribes" go to "tribal council" have a little talk and vote someone off. At a certain point, a "jury" starts to form and then by then end there are 9 people on this "jury". They get to ask the last 2, in this season, 3 people questions as to why they should vote for them to be the winner of 1 million dollars.
So, that's what the "jury" is doing now. I find it so funny how the people on the "jury" are annoyed and furious that people manipulated them throughout the game. Apparently none of them ever watched Survivor before they came on the show, because that's how one "stays alive" throughout the game. And some of these people were absolute bitches, yes we all know you're bitter because you're on the "jury" instead of being considered for the million dollars, GET THE FUCK OVER IT!!!! It's Survivor, that's how it's played. There's one player this time, Dreamz who made a deal with another player, Yauman, when Yau won the car (there has never been a Survivor season where the person that won the car, won the million dollars), Yau told Dreamz that he could have the car (because D was the only one on the island without a car, and was homeless before starting the game, supposedly, cause you never really know), if both of them got to the final 4, and if Dreamz won immunity for that, that Dreamz would give immunity to Yau. What I find funny, is that Dreamz kept saying was that he was a man of his word, he was gonna show in front of everyone (watching) and his children, that he was a man of his word. And then when it gets to the final four and D does get immunity he doesn't give it to Yau. And then at this last "tribal council" he says he was playing the game all along. That I doubt. My guess is he just changed his mind at the last minute becuase he found out there would be 3 people vying for the million dollars.

And the winner of the million dollars is.....Earl
There wasn't anyone I was really hoping for but out of the 3 that were left, Dreamz, Cassandra, and Earl, I think Earl was the best choice.
In the first time in Survivor history, one person got all of the votes (that being Earl).

I never wanna say goodbye

First of all, I'm wishing my parents a happy anniversary today, they are a few years short of 35 years of marriage. I know they won't read this, and on the hopes of other family members not finding it, I'm not sticking the exact anniversary number here.
Second, everyone wish your mother a Happy Mother's Day tomorrow.
Third, Goddess tagged me in a meme. Which I was entertained by considering she hates meme's.
Here are the rules of the game:
1) Link the post who tagged you.
2) List your top five favorite places to eat, and why.
3) Tag five others.

My top five favorite places to eat (I'm not that picky):

1. Any family get-together on my mom's side, I believe that's self-explanatory.
2. Red Lobster, I love the cheddar biscuits they have, and I have grown to love the steak and lobster tail.
3. Dutch Oven Bakery (they're unique to here), they have some pretty good pastries. I love spending $20 for a box of pastries there. Plus, their egg-salad sandwiches are soo good.
4. West Side Deli (one of the best kept secrets here). They have some yummy ass mushroom sandwiches.
5. Frances. It's a diner/eatery in Chicago, pretty close to my brother's apartment, and we always eat there at least once when we go to Chicago.
6. (in case people don't like my #1). Dairy Queen They are my favorite fast food place to eat.

The other 5 I will pick:
1. Kate (she'll steal my meme's anyway)
2. Sodapop (she usually gives me meme's)
3. Carrie
4. AD (cause I know he breezes by every now and then and he's got a blog, so we'll see if he takes it)

I really don't think I have 5 regulars that I know who they are.

Fourth, I got me a job. I'm ecstatic, though I'm holding off on telling my family. Just cause, I'm finally happy, and I keep thinking something's gonna happen to get me fired. Not that I really think I'll screw up or anything, it's just such a good job, that I'm afraid to believe I actually have it. A new fibers/art store opened here in town and the lady running it is very busy so needed someone to help her out, and I get to be lucky and help. She also said (because she's an artist and sells her stuff at shows) that I might get to go on the road with her. This sounds very close to my perfect job, I really wanna be a full-time artist, but... It's starting out as part-time, but unlike the center, it's a constant each week, so I'm really happy about it.
Also, I have a freind that I believe is becoming more than a friend (see earlier post), but I don't wanna fuck anything up, so I'm letting him make all the moves, and we'll see where it goes.

Everything I am

OK, so I finally got around to watching the COPS episode that was on 2 weeks ago. There was one segment in Brevard County, FL where the officer pulled a guy over and the dude was chewing on/eating marijuana and the cop arrested the guy, searched his car and then let the guy go with his court date. I don't get that. If he's just gonna release the guy, I don't understand why he was able to search the car. It almost seems that he put the guy under arrest just to search the car, though I don't think that's true. Can anyone explain it to me?

Has anyone seen commercials for this new show, Pirate Master? My guess, I'm gonna end up watching it, but I don't understand why you'd want to do it (be in it, not watch it).

Speaking of TV shows, I'm pissed at FOX, and not just becuase they've decided to play NASCAR and other things in place of COPS. If you've paid attention, I got sucked into the show Drive, it started on April 15th for a 2 hour season premiere, had another new episode on the 16th, and another one on the following Monday. And now we're in limbo. I've checked the website and it says tune in for the final 2 episodes this summer. How wrong is that? 6 episodes and the season's over with, it's just wrong.
A bunch of my other shows are done for the season. Amazing Race ended Sunday, model boy and his gf won.
Cold Case ended on Sunday, Lilly Rush (one of the detectives) was shot, and it ended with her hanging onto her life. If CBS drops her, I guarantee I will stop watching the show.
The Search for the next Pussycat Doll (yes, I watched it) ended a couple weeks ago, with Asia winning.
America's Next Top Model (Yes, I watch this) will end next Wed, as will Bones and Medium.
Supernatural will end next Thurs, its supposed to be a two-part finale, so I'm taping and watching it tonight and next Thurs, then I'm gonna watch it all together.
Survivor's 2 hr finale is sunday. I still can't figure out who's gonna win, or at least who's gonna be gone at next tribal council and so on.

Also, for all of you that were Pickett Fences fans way back in the day, the 1st season will finally be coming out on DVD on June 19th.

Lessons I've learned:
5. If it doesn't come off with 409, try Comet

The Man in Black's gonna rock your ass again

So, you should know by now that I am a listmom of a Yahoo! art group, that deals with art trading cards. Anyways, we just had a swap and I sent the cards back to the people. Well, I got an email from one of my members today, saying she hadn't gotten her packet back. And I'm thinking WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO DO ABOUT IT? I can't go ask the mail carriers where her package is, I can't jump in the mail and find her package. Personally I don't exactly care, ok I care, but there's nothing I can do about it. Everyone loses a package at least once during these things, chalk it up to experience and move on. Sorry needed to vent. And if anyone doesn't know what an art trading card is, google it, you'll get sources.

So lately, I've had the urge to run away (ok more than usual) into the country where life is simple and happy. Anybody got a remedy for this?
These poems were written by me, and if I find out anyone takes them and doesn't ask, I'll have to hunt you down and hurt you, I do have my ways. That being said, enjoy.

My world

As I walk through the country
I feel the wind in my hair
The squishy ground underneath my feet
The smell of country in my nose
I know I belong here
This is where the world talks to me and I can hear it
Don't take me away
I want to spend the rest of my days here
Listening to the birds and nature explain to me about living
But, alas it is not to be
My parents call me to the car
And I am pulled back to
Crowded streets
Cars roaring down them
Lost in the world of now
Until next time

Rolling fields of green and skies of blue
Roads snaking through Iowa countryside
Birds in air on land
Searching for prey
My land, looking for me
A red cardinal in the stark contrast of
Winter months or lush green spring
Tiny paths cutting through wood
Filled with brances and woodland creatures
This is my world where natur and humans collide
Technology and simplicity working alongside each other
Pets mingling with deer and wolves
I'd take the lonely fields over crowded streets any day

Maybe 6 feet ain't so far down

I wonder if anything really bad can happen if you break your toe and don't do anything about it. Course I'm not entirely sure I broke it.
So, we all know I'm not entirely smart at times. Anyways, I mowed my lawn today and was washing off the mower and realized I'd have to hose off the driveway (now that it's paved), so my parents have some boards on the driveway (well they did), so i was moving them out of the way. Then I went inside to make me some lunch, I had this great idea that I would finish cleaning the driveway and eat my lunch on the porch (after being nicely cleaned up). So, I'm back outside cleaning the driveway, when I realized one of the boards was too close to the driveway, so the water and dirt couldn't run off. I moved that board, and the one on top of it decided to slip off onto the ground, so I had to move that one. Of course that one's all slimy and gross, so I thought I'd move it with my foot. BAD IDEA. The board dropped right onto my big toe, sending a shitload of pain for me to experience, and then a couple seconds afterward, started bleeding. Good sign, right? This was (I'm guessing, 4x4x8) a pretty big heavy board when its falling on you. Yes, I was barefoot, also bad idea. And because I'm such a klutz, I know you have to put pressure on blood, which I did with my handy dandy lunch napkins. So, it stopped bleeding pretty quickly. Then it started to hurt more. I had it propped up and wasn't walking on it. That was about 1:00PM this afternoon.
Later, I'm reading on my couch, and I attempt to bend my toe, not really happening. Which I decided was a bad sign, so I made it bend with my hands, BAD IDEA. Now I'm in pain again. It's pretty bad pain, it's brought tears to my eyes. The only other time I've had pain that made me cry was when I had my kidney stone a couple years back.
So, I'm wondering if it's broken. There's a nice white line on my toenail about 1/4" down the toe. It looks like there's blood building up beneath the toenail, though it's not actually bleeding out. And it hurts when I bend (or attempt to bend) it down.
Any suggestions? Other than going to the hospital? I don't have the money and I'm not about to waste my time at the hospital, I've heard stories about how long it takes to get a person in there, esp when it's not life threatening.

I wish...

Last Thurs, I woke up, and real life slapped me in the face. And it sucks, so with that lingering in my mind, I watched Supernatural, and it got me thinking about things.

Last week (5/3), the guys (Dean and Sam) were hunting a Djinn (genie), and the Djinn attacks Dean and makes him think that the Djinn granted his wish that his mother wasn't killed in a fire when he was young. This fire got their dad hunting the supernatural stuff, which brought the boys into the hunt as they grew up. One hunt the dad went off and didn't talk to Dean in awhile, who then went to find Sam and they took up hunting.
Anyways, their life was so great (the father had died of a stroke, apparently they couldn't get him to come for the episode though), Sam was happily in law school and engaged to his girlfriend (who died in a similar fire to the one that killed their mother after Dean recruited him for a hunt), Dean had a girlfriend and was apparently happy. Only he found out that all the people he, Sam, and the father saved, didn't actually get saved in this other life, so he went to find the jen and see what it did. Apparently it made his conscious think the wish was granted while it slowly drained his life away without him knowing it. In the end (after Sam brings him back), Dean's debating if it was actually worth it.
Sam: I'm glad you dug yourself out, Dean. Most people wouldn't of had the strength, would've just stayed.
Dean: You should have seen it, Sammy. You had Jess. Mom was gonna have grandkids.
Sam: Dean, it wasn't real.
Dean: I know. But I wanted to stay. I wanted to stay so bad....Ever since dad, all I can think about is how much this job's cost us. We've lost so much. We've sacrificed so much.
Sam: But people are alive because of you. It's worth it Dean. It is. It's not fair and it hurts like hell, but it's worth it.

It just got me thinking, that what if genies existed and they could grant wishes, or make you think they did. If they actually did this, and I had it happen to me, knowing what was happening with my body, would I leave? If I could have that one wish, would I give up this life for another?
