Ramblings of a Mad Piggie

Wednesday, November 29, 2006


Yesterday, I went and made the final payment for our big Hawaii trip in January.
All done and the master card even survived the large hit.
Now is the time to start thinking, planning, shopping for all shit that is Hawaii.

Hubby laid a bombshell a couple of weeks ago that he might not be going
me: "And"
him: "Nothing, I'm just thinking that I might not go."
me: "Aand"
him: "You guys are all going to get washed out with the next Tsunami." (hubby's biggest fear are waves. Since a boy, he's always saw himself being overcome by a huge crashing wave...hey its his thing. He's allowed one fear I guess)
me: "Aaaaaannnndddd"

You get the drift. I wasn't going to argue with him. If he goes, fine. If he doesn't, that's all fine too.
I see it this way. If he goes, they'll bound to be trouble between him and I and when we fight, we fight. We don't care who's around or what we're doing. If he's going to start yelling, I'll be fucked if I'm going to stand there and let him continue to yell. Not that's what we do all the time, but truthfully when the shit hits the fan, it HITS the fan. So with the kids going and mom, AND middle sis with us on vacay, it just seems inevitable that he's going to start shitting.
If he doesn't go.......um....oh well, I guess.

But I paid for him to go anyways. Now we'll just see if he gets on the plane. There's insurance so if he doesn't go, I lose $100 or so. Well worth the headaches.

I think the next month or so, I'll be renting some movies: Titanic, Poseidon, The Perfect Storm, Deep Impact, The Day After Tomorrow, Point Break.

That should do it.

Well well. Guess what I got woken up to this morning at 5:30 am. A hubby screaming that the stoves been on all night (since 6:00 pm mind you). It seems when I was warming up dinner (in the microwave, not the stove), that i must have somehow turned on one of the burners. LIke no flame burner, just the gas.
I know I smoked a cigarette or two in the house around midnight. Guess there wasn't enough gas to go boom...lucky for us.
So hubby is going around opening up all the windows and dorrs to try to get the gas out. I go and see if the kids are ok and they get in bed with me. Guess what we do then...we all go back to SLEEP.
What dumbasses. But according to the genius that is hubby, he said, "everything is fine....i got it out" and like a dumbshit, I listened and went back to bed. Around 6:30, the kids and I get up to get dressed for the day.
As i dropped off the girl, I didn't feel very feel and I called the boy who was still at home, to get out and go to school.
They were both fine, I think I just had a headache from all the stress and crying ...yeah crying cause we could've not woken up this morning.
I refused to talk to hubby cause he yelled at me, but I did text him to let me know if the cat was dead when he got home from work.
What can I say!?

Man, its been forever since I posted.

Let's see:


The boy broke up with his girlfriend of just over a month. Jesus wept. He says its because she said that he just got together with him to get back at another girl that he had harbored feelings for over the past year. It seems (as i told the boy this would happen) that this girl all of sudden realized what a great guy he was After he was taken. I told him this. I said these words exactly, "Son, now that your "taken" you watch, the girls will all of a sudden realize what a great kid you are and they'll start trouble." Sure enough, trouble started to follow him. He even told his friends that that's what my mom said would happen. I should know, cause I know I've been guilty of that back in the day. Soooo, I'm in "suicide watch"....not really suicide but for a 14 year old, this is devasting. His dad of course said, "So , you lost one...who cares. This is where you go, "You wanna leave? Fine leave. (Turning to the next girl) Hi, my name is (the boy), what's your name?" That's typical cause that 's what he did back in the day. I think between us, the boy will be completely screwed. I actually told the boy to go "play" the girl that started trouble for him and get over the old one.

The girl is fine. She went to a black and white dance on Friday and she said she only danced once with a boy. I asked fast or slow and she smiled and said "slow". She told her dad that , and you should have seen his face. Priceless. I asked her today on the way to school , who she "likes' right now and she said no one right now but as soon as she finds one, she'd let me know. Awwwwwww.

As far as I am concerned, all is well ......for now. :)

Went to see Nightmare before Xmas in 3D again this friday. Middle Sis, me, little N, the girl, the niece and the boy all sat in a row (well the boy sat in front of us) and proceeded to watch the magical event. I luv the movie I really do. Sometimes though it's hard to have another person (no names mentioned) who sings along with the whole movie and recites most of it word for word, and who has to point out everything out to everyone else, even though everyone can plainly see the shit themselves.
I don't know why I'm trying to be all cryptic. It's stupid really. But oldest sis and I's biggest fear is that one day "the psychic" will find these blogs and all hell will break loose.

I say as long as it happens after Hawaii, I'm OK with it. :)

Anyways, I digress.....what else happened?

- The girl had her best friend spend the night on Saturday.
- Went shopping to Costco on Sunday
- Bought a gift for the boys first girlfriend. Her birthday is this Thursday.
- Went to a rosary on Sunday. It was packed. It was for a woman who was only 40 years old and was a friend of ours thru hubby's second family. She was shot 4 times in a "drive-by".
-Played Mah Jong till my arm cramped up and I was getting bleary eyed. (2:00 am)

Oh I could go into more detail with the weekend. Like how many times one can say "umbrella" in Italian (7 times in under 5 minutes).....or how many seconds it takes a person to ask for some photographs that I didn't pull out of a drawer to look at (14 sec).....or how many times can a person bring up a new color of hair before someone comments (3)....or......like I said I could go on, but it's all just tooo discriminating.

Holy shit...I think the girl may just pull it off. Last year the girl said she was going to get all A's in junior high. I patted her on the back and said, "you just go ahead and do that...I know you can. and if you do, I'll get you anything you want." Her answer: a sidekick. My reply, "ok"
What a moron.
The girl is not dumb. Far from it. But I happen to know she sucks at math and I thought no way would she ever pull an A in algebra.
You guessed it. She has a B plus.
I'm quietly crapping my pants now cause I can't get a sidekick cause its a T-Mobile only phone and I'm verizon who just started a new 2 year contract in June of this year.
Full price for a sidekick is 329.00 plus tax.
Be careful what you promise.

Man....how the times have changed.
Once upon a time, if you missed a show, then you missed it. You'd have to wait for the re-runs.
Then came DVD sets. If you missed one of your favorites, then you could always rent or buy the DVD season once it was done.
Then came Tivo and DVR....not there when the show came on? No problem, tape it and watch it anytime (which is what I did all season with Weeds. Oldest sis would DVR and I would come over usually on Sunday to catch up.)
And now the internet finally.
There's a show out there called Jericho. I really wanted to watch this at the beginning and sis and I said it looked good. Well sis started to watch it and would tell me I gotta watch it, but it seemed I was never home on Wednesday night or I would forget.
Well, I'm all caught up.
Went onto the CBS website and got to watch all 6 episodes I've missed.
Fucking fantastic. I'm so glad I got a new computer and was able to do this.
It's really a good s how. I recommned to anyone.
Now I can't wait until the next one.
