People are annoying

You of course are not included in this group but more and more people are annoying the crape out of me. And you guessed right, these people are on Facebook!

Why do people insist on filling in their 6000 friends their entire life story??!! I get that we all like to share good news, pictures of our gorgeous kids/ dogs, but damn I don't need to know your every move of every minute of every damn day!!!! Facebook is not a diary people!!!! Go to Walgreens, buy a spiral noteebook and a nice pen. Tell the paper your thoughts and leave us alone. AND don't get mad when everyone knows your damn business. Ever thought that some things should not be shared? Get a therapist.

I feel better. The end.

Things that make me go hmmmm...

Do you ever sit and wonder what the hell we did before phones, Facebook, the internet, etc? As I spend hours on Facebook a day spend little time on Facebook every day, I see that our lives are thrust-ed into each other's faces ALL DAY!  I know what people like to eat (I am so guilty of this!), where their favorite restaurant is, what color their nails are that day, when they are having a bad day, etc.  And don't get me wrong, I love being nosey and seeing what is on your mind.  But I try to think back when I was in high school when hardly anyone had internet at their house.  The way we found out information was writing letters and calling each other ON THE PHONE when we got home..or when our mom let us.  OR when we would sneak a phone call late at night.  Did you ever turn the ringer off late at night and hope you answered the phone just in time to talk to your homey?  I'm the only one? FINE!

Anywho, I am addicted to Facebook just like everyone else but what would we do if tomorrow it wasn't there? I don't even have contact information for MOST of my FB friends so I wouldn't be able to call them.  I don't know where most of them live so I couldn't go and visit.  AND to be honest, there are probably a handful of my FB friends that I would even care to talk to in person.  But yet they are my "FB friends" and have an insight to my daily life, pictures of my family, etc.

But I do try and go through my friend's list and delete those people that I had a class with in middle school who never said a word to me but now they want an additional friend on FB so they sent me a friend request.  Be gone fool.

Anyway, things that make ME go hmmm....


Officially 3 days away from being in Los Angeles before I'm on a jet plane to China.  I haven't finished packing, I haven't bought everything I need and well...that's how I like it. Procrastination is my best asset.  If there were a contest, I would win..hands down! :)

When will I finish you ask? Probably in the wee hours of Saturday night...when I LOSE an hour because Daylight Saving Time is that day. Pretty smart right? And even though I know this information, I STILL won't finish everything on time.  LOL! I have issues.  And even though I have a list, I will probably forget something. I will let you know what that is on the back end.

Always at the right moment...

I am so very lucky and most of all blessed to be surrounded by amazing people. These people are always around the exact moment when I need them...and I know that is no coincidence.  They show up and remind me why my life is so great and why I should be grateful for everything that is good.

So to God and sweet baby Jesus, I say thank you. :)

It's Wednesday

Wednesdays are always that weird day of the week for me.  It's far away from Monday to make you feel good and almost close enough to Friday to make you feel even better! So happy Wednesday!!!

Wednesday also means that I'm getting closer and closer to my China trip. Never in a gazillion years did I think I would ever spend a Spring Break in China! I wonder if "Girls Gone Wild" ever did a show there. Doubtful right? But I'll be on the look out JUST IN CASE! OR...we can make our own.  Nah...not a good idea either. :)  I'll ask my travel partners.

I leave Sunday to Los Angeles. I will spend the day there with good friends of mine and on Monday morning I will be on a jet plane on my to CHINA!! The weather is really cold and I am looking forward to it.  Well I say that now, I'll let you know how it worked out for me.  But I would much rather be cold than HOT! I can't imagine going in the summer!!!

Internet access is sketchy in China so I won't be able to blog, but I am going to do my hardest to journal and come back and post my journey.  I can't wait to share it with you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My song for the day

"Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson. LOVE.IT!!!!!!!!!!!

I first liked when I saw the commercial with her and those other dudes in that Camry (good marketing!)
Here is the link to it...I know you've seen it!

People are dumb.

If you follow my blog, you know that I like to talk shit about people. I probably shouldn't, but it makes me feel better about myself.  So most of the annoying things come from Facebook and today I will share the ones that are annoying me this week.

There is a small group of people on Facebook that try to use big words and it just looks and sounds ridiculous.  Just because you use a big word in a sentence does not mean that you are smart.  And if you write like you speak, that usually doesn't work out either.  I know when I write emails, I sound WAY smarter than I actually am because I was taught how to do that....and I didn't even go to college. AND most of the idiots on FB have college degrees which is an entirely different story.

The people that only do favors so that they can rub it in your face a day later are on my nerves!!!!!!!!!  What happened to doing nice things for people just so you can feel good about yourself? And if you did a good deed that day...why do you have to put it on Facebook? And if you let me borrow $1 for a drink, why do you have to put it on Facebook like you saved my life????  I would rather you not do a damn thing for me if you are going to be waiting on my front door the next morning asking "what's in it for me?"

I think I have complained about these idiots before but GOODNESS gracious...why do you have to brag all the time???  I know I brag about Sofia being so smart, but that's not what I'm talking about. :) I'm talking about the people that brag about material items.  I really don't care that your man spent way too much money on that ugly Coach purse you now have to carry around.  And I really don't care that your man spent $200 on  Valentine's Dinner at a restaurant that was too packed to even enjoy!!!!!!!  STOP.THE.MADNESS.  We don't want to know every time you get a gift...really, we don't.

I think that's all for today..... :) I feel better now.

Songs in my head...

Do you ever get songs stuck in your head? Well I ALWAYS get a song stuck in mine and every day it's a different one. And the ones that get stuck are completely random. So I'm going to post every time a dumb song gets stuck in my head....for no other reason than for my own amusement.

Today the song has been the one that goes like this...
"I want you to take over control...take over control..." And you may not know it but those are the only words that keep playing in my head. LOL!!

9 days!

In 9 days, I will be on a jet plane (Cue music!) on my way to CHINA!  Never in my wildest dreams did I EVER think I would go there.  China is not normally on people's "Must travel-to" places and honestly it was never really on mine, but now that I am going, China is my new favorite place.  Anytime I see something Chinese, I automatically think it's connected to me somehow because I'm going. Yes, I am insane!

Today it hit me that I need to start thinking about packing.  Yes, I won't leave until next weekend but I am going to a foreign country and I need to take everything I can possibly think of that I'm going to need!  I know everything is made in China anyway, but it's not the same. I have started making lists and I realized I am going to have to do a lot of shopping. Poor me! :)

I am getting more and more nervous as the days pass because it brings me that much closer to leaving. I am so excited about the trip but I have a pit in my stomach when I think about leaving my precious Sofia.  Yes, I know she is nuts and sometimes I want to give her away to gypsies...but nonetheless, she is my baby and I love her dearly. I've never been away from home for so long either so I will have a lot of "firsts" on this trip.  I told my roomie Michelle Arnold that if she hears me crying in my bed just to ignore me. 

BUT I will get over it and absence makes the heart grow fonder right?
