Happy Friday Everyone.
If you DVR'd last nights Burn and haven't watched it yet...skip this bit.
I guess that they have decided that the character of Madeline needed a break so Sharon G was no where to be found.
In itself that is fine but I do miss the moments where she lets one and all know that she is more or less on to her son's shenanigans and not as dim as they all thought .
You Go Girl .
Over all not a bad ep, and I loved the end because I still mourn the loss of " Numbers " on Friday night.
Not having my Fedcakes and "Can Haz Grandbabies Pls " has screwed up my whole weekend happy place.
Shout out to " The Original Spy" !
Girl...They cast our lil Amita ( Mrs. Charlie Epps ) as the baddie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ROCK THE FUCK ON PEOPLE !
The IBKC is now up to about 5 squillion ( 5K) for the dog-a-thon so I am a very happy camper.
Hisself's new glasses are in and they are fine save his grousing about needing to get them adjusted...
He has to work most of the day tomorrow and then has a party at a co-workers house to go to so I will have lots of me time.
Now, I bet some of you are wondering ..." Pol, why aren't you going to the party ?"
The answers are as follows:
1. Most , if not all of his co-workers are for the most part little better than drooling idiots...nice enough ...but if you get past the usual work talk, sports , beer, or houses of creative dancing , there is little to say. I guarantee that before the evening is over, one of them would say something so stupid that I would be forced to eviscerate them in a fashion that would be both fun for me and leaving them to grasp the event 3 days later. Part of their confusion is that when I play with my prey, I don't yell or curse...I am the one you have to really listen to before you get what I am saying.
2. I have nothing in common with his co-workers and detest small talk.
3. He needs and deserves his own me time.
4. DR . WHO on BBC.
I have enough to do as it is ..the house needs a LOT of attention with the Dyson and I have to do a bunch of crap.
Will I get a lot of it done ?
Mostly..but I also have a basic character ( Shaman ) to work on and if you are reading this Roger..I am gonna need help....Love to Rae too !
Then there is the time wastage with Farmville et. al.
We finally got some rain so I am a happy happy woman....Andy is another story.
Have a great weekend.

Yup..another score on Etsy.
I love jewelry.
More than anything else I love handmade, unusual pieces that are one of a kind.
Not so much a statement piece in the " Hollyweird Bullshit Glamslamobam" where the label is not the artist, merely a vendor greasing palms to get their crap before a camera crew.
I am sure that they are all lovely pieces, but I doubt there is a Harry Winston sitting in a shop staring at a lapidary grinding wheel thinking about all the possibilities.
Yes..I had one of those wheels.
In another life I dabbled.
Now I collect unset gemstones and have thought about roughing out an idea....the hesitation comes from the act of committing the stone to the plan.
You must be sure.
I love rose gold which is coming back into fashion and therefore available...hell bells....I love gold as it is and except for a personal choice not to ever wear white gold again..." Ohhh , Shiney !"
I am also at the age where I don't want to look like every other middle aged woman..I know when I am meant to have a piece of artwork ..and that is what I consider the handmade jewelry I buy..artwork.
Price is really not an issue , within reason..I did after all just buy LOLA and SU and I and the kitteh's have gotten spoiled by the occasional regular meal...I can usually afford most things.
The above is made by palafoxstudio23 on Etsy.
If you want to search on Etsy, just use key words like I did...copper earrings lampwork glass.
It will bring up a lot of shops and you can browse to your retail shopping hearts content. It will also offer suggestions and after a while you will be able to tell what shops you want to buy from.
One thing I do use as a guide is oddly enough how the shops wares are presented. Are they photographed more than once ? Are the descriptions helpful and accurate ? When a shop is suggested, if the owner doesn't have a basic photo of their wares ..I will pass it by.
I have told everyone that I have purchased from that their product may very well end up here in a post with photos. I haven't been shopping very long on Etsy but I am 100% + pleased. The artists seem to genuinely appreciate feedback and if and when I am not pleased with a purchase, in all fairness..I won't post it here.
I will give the artist the appropriate chance to fix the situation.
I am saying this here and now because I realize that not every one is as stupid as Demontrond KIA ..DO NOT get me started on how rude their people are on the phone.
I am the phone Goddess for a not small law firm in Houston and have been here for 28 + years. I have also worked the switchboard for my alma mater WSU full time for a few years.
Demontronds lack of customer service only makes me value the good service I recieve and further reminds me of how I will to represent my workplace.
No..that is not ass kissing..it is being a responsible adult and employee.
Just for shits and grins..go check out Etsy.
It's fun !
Have a great day.

I don't know what the man has done with my photo's at home so I will edit this from the office for the proper John Barrowman photo....promise....LOL.
No , LOLA was not ready today.
To say that we are disappointed puts it mildly, but you don't want them to fubar leather for the interior and seats...so it is what it is.
I knew from the git go that this week was going to be a bad one. I have the honor of babysitting a mediation at the office for the balance of the week and it appears that Beavis and Butthead are still running the gig.
As my late father used to say ..." When in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout ".
His favorite phrase by the way.
It's not that we don't know what we are doing, we do and we are rather good at it.
It's the rest of them...those who have the misfortune to be thrown in the deep end of the pool for the first time that I find somewhat taxing.
I would have given my right tit ( the prettier one by the way ) for extra Valium to pass out.
Thus the phone call from the dealer today was not really an " WTF " moment.
SU's job is fine but insane right now and this on top of recent events wants to make me bang my head against a wall with an .." Enough " moment.
His employer has sold the company to a much larger one with a national profile. SU is a fabricator....ie part of the group that actually makes the product so he is safe but the hand wringing in a very stupid and short sighted way is getting on my last nerve.
You see, we discuss...ok...I have to take that last bit back.,...I get in the car and SU yaps on about his whole day.
I stopped listening a long time ago.
Now with the sale/closing I am hearing even more of the same crap ...over and over and over and over again.
I go to my happy place..."OK Pol...you need to do a load of laundry when you get home....the kids need to be fed....their plates and place mats washed up /put away...I wonder what Sistah of My Heart is doing....are the girls home....do the hydrangeas need to be watered....the herbs..the potted plants..what's on tv....do I need a face mask tonight...facial hair....do we have lunch made for tomorrow..is the coffee done....anything so that I don't have to actually hear the same shit over and over again in the car on the way home.
We have a rule that we vent in the car in the way home so that once we hit the driveway ,,,the bad Karma is out.....
But I have been stressed too....no where like he has and I get his bit...I know that he is going through some stuff and I am trying to be nice and fair and all that ....
At least Mr. Trejo mulched all of the flower beds and they look great...maybe this week he can mow..either that or I swear I am buying a goat.
Lets all have a better week.

I will never for the life of me understand why some people need to flame a blogger.
If you don't like the post...don't comment.
It's a free world.
We all have our likes and dislikes.
We are human.
This was NOT a differing viewpoint..this was just not necessary.
No..this is not about me.
If some one flamed me without merit,,,I would frag their ass right here.
I just read a post on one of my favorite blogs that was as they used to say " Beyond The Pale ".
I am sure you made your Mother a very proud woman .
Sorry,,,,got to go there..
Not PG..warning !
BITE ME BITCH !
You sorry POS.
