I really did it this time!!

my super intelligent self decided that I wanted a perm. Not really a perm, I wanted a body wave, big fat waves. I had visions of bouncy hair. Hair that I did not have to blow dry if I didn't want to . Well, that is not what I got. I got fried that looks horrendous! I should have known better. But I just went into it with blind faith.

I have conditioned my hair more than 3X since yesterday. I am about to pour canola oil on my hair, I am that desperate! People are probably making fun of my google searches for "How to fix a bad perm". I am not brave enough t post pictures right now. So I'll leave you with some images that make me feel waaaay better about my mistake!

Any suggestions for a quick fix aside from more chemicals???

Holy Highway Robbery Batman!

Kat started at the University on Moday. So far so good. Professors seem ok, for now. Today, she went to buy 2 books and a lab coat. Total? $364!!!!! No used books to be had. It's not enough that each semester is roughly about $2K. No wonder these poor kids are in debt way into their careers! Fortunately she decided to stay home and go to school here.

So now, I shall remove myself from my soapbox and move on to something else.

I think that I may have just converted Danny into a "shopper"! We went to JC Penney today and a bunch of stuff was green tagged 75% or more. He actually walked out with 3 freakin' huge bags full of clothes! Yea! This is from a man who literally lives in T-shirts. It drives me nuts. I have threatened to throw them all away. T-shirts and caps. Anyhoo, he paid less than $200 for it all. I ended up w/3 dresses and a bathing suit for $30! Of course the Men's dept. was loaded with stuff whereas the pickins were very slim for the ladies. So lets see about $800 worth of stuff for $200 and 2 books for $340. What's wrong with this picture????

Foot Frustration

I got this in my email and of course I did it, because I'm goofy like that. But... I must admit that I tried to fight it!

Try this... It's SO freaky.....

How smart is Your Right Foot?? It will amaze you!
Just try this. This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot,
but, you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!

1. WITHOUT anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY......) and while sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction, but this doesn't happen if you do it with your LEFT side!

I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it!
You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

Wanted: Motivation

I seem to have lost my motivation. Anyone seen it?
Lately I have been feeling blah! Tired all the time. I prefer to stay home instead of going out. Sometimes, I even forgo a trip to my beloved Target. I don't feel like blow drying my hair or even shaving my legs!

At least I do get up and get on the treadmill. But only for about 1/2 hour because I get bored. In high school, we used to have to run the mile every day. We were allowed to run the stretch and walk the curves. My lazy butt now runs curves and walks the stretches.

I need to get my act together. Pronto!

Road Rage

I hate driving, period. I have always said that if I ever win the lottery, the first thing I get will be a driver. I hate driving with all the idiots out there who wholeheartedly believe that they own the road!

I went shopping with Kat yeaterday. We hit rush hour traffic on the way home and were stopped at a light behind a line of cars. Kat was showing me something when I hear constant honking. I look to my left and this lady is passing by me makin all sorts of facial and manual gestures. Apparently she was upset that I was not close enough to the car ahead of me. She wanted to get into the turning lane so she rode on the median past several other cars before she got to me. The turning lane was backed up to my car actualy, but there was about a good 5ft b/w me and the car in front of me. Apparently she believed that if I got bumper to bumper with the car ahead of me she would be able to squeeze her car into an already full turn lane. I glanced at my mirror and I noticed that she actually passed people that were waiting their turn to get into the turning lane with their indicators on.

Sorry lady, but I don't ride on peoples bumpers. Obviously, you do and that is why your car is all crashed up. In any case, she was not able to turn on the light anyway. So when we drove by her I happily waved. I know, fuel to the fire. One day I'll probably get in trouble for it. But I couldn't help myself. The other day, this guy was passing cars, weaving in and out of traffic and it looked like he was about to smash into my rear so I merged right to try & get out of his way. Well, he happened to merge right at the same time and he got royally ticked. Quickly went back to the left and passed me, while giving me the finger. All of a sudden, I hear a siren and he is pulled over. You would not believe how happy that made me! I drove past him and waved!

America's Got Talent

Since I know that everyone gives a squat what I think, I figured that I would share my favorite on this show. This is who I am rooting for 100%! Be sure to sto my annoying song on the right. :)

In Search Of...

I am always tickled at what people search for that leads them to my blog. Usually amusing, sometimes down right scary!

Today, since I have nothing better to write about, I will share some with you. You're Welcome.

"Getting rid of frogs in the backyard"
Ok, I understand that one since I'm always complaing about the frogs. But then comes ...

"Is frog poop good for you?"
Huh? My guess would be NO! Yuck!

"Lissete Girl"
Yeah, that would be me... I am a girl.

Oh, and
"Who is the Queen of Target"
YES! You found me!

Then we have searches that involve a grammar lesson.
"Is Fantabulous a real word?"
Hell yeah! I've been using it since high school!

And while we are talking about high school...
"What are submarine races?"
Life lesson #1. There is no such thing! Think Inspiration Point.

"How much space to leave between when slow dancing?"
Who would ask such a thing? None. Zip. Nada. Those days are over! They actually ended around 6th grade ;)

"Chicken with huge butts"
Okay.... For some reason they were led to this post. Somone with a chicken fetish I suppose.

or this:
"Sexy Chimps"
Well if you're into chimps, I suppose that you would want a sexy one.

Since we are somewhat on the subject, how about the ones that are searching for porn??
"Fantasy with her hands" links here

"Diapered Chick"
I was commenting on that astronaut lady. Who would have thunk that that was porn?

"Men who like laxatives"
I guess I am quite naive about some things. I just don't get the sexual connotation. Anywho this is the post.

And finally, the one that scared the beejeesuz out of me. All the way from Dubai...
"How to get rid of Lissete"

They tried to make me go to rehab, but I said no, no, no!

The good news is that the withdrawl headaches are gone! I have been clean for exactly 7 days. The cravings are also down and I have been drinking lots of water. Have I mentioned that I don't really like water? But that's what I have been having. Plain old filtered water from my tap. No add ins either. No lemon or CrystalLite. No bottled water either, because #1, I refuse to spend money on water (unless I'm out & have no choice) and #2 because you get tap water anyway!

Believe it or not, the purest best tasting water we ever had was in Martinique in the French Antilles. People were filling up bottles from a spring on the side of the road. Our driver pulled over to give us a taste. At first I was hesitant, I mean this was literally water that was spurting out from a pipe on the side of the road. For all I knew, it was a sewer line! Michele, our driver told us that the water came from the same spring that they bottled the water sold in their stores. We filled up our empty Zephyrhills bottles (probably tap too) & tried it. The water was crystal clear, crisp & refreshing. Plus I didn't have to pay $1 plus for a small bottle. Just some useless information for ya'll! :)

Back to my original post. The Diet Coke thing is going well. The diet thing is ok as well. Except for the 3 saboteurs in this house. I need to literally go away, alone, for a few months in order to lose weight. Something like the Bigget Loser, without my family tempting me all the time! Plus a personal trainer wouldn't hurt either. I just get sooo mad that they all, especially Danny, do not try to help. It's not as if he doesn't need too lose more than a few pounds himself! It's been a huge point of contention in this house for the past week. I have to go away when they sit down to dinner because my will power is zero. I have been having dinner by myself because they will not eat what I eat. And I can't be around what they eat.

Visit Hawaii....

Since I have been planning our Hawaii trip for almost a year, I have found many very helpful sites. I'm sure that I missed quite a few as well. My most recent find, thanks to Kailani, is Go Visit Hawaii. Even if you are not currently planning a trip, Sheila has a wealth of information that may be very helpful to you in the future. The best part is that she is hosting a contest and the prize includes yummy Hawaiian munchies. So head on over to Go Visit Hawaii, & check it out.

On a side note, my counter says 47 days till we leave. This year has flown by!

Don't forget to sign my guestbook at the bottom of the page if you haven't already done so.

$65 for Cotton Balls

I have absolutely no self control. I admit it. Made my daily Target run today. Just went in for cotton balls. Instead of just going straight to the cotton ball department, I stroll the entire freakin' store. Those red stickers were yelling at me to come look. "Hey, come look at me... I'm 75% off" They know that that is music to my ears. Toys were marked down, but fortunately, I don't have little ones anymore . But the heathens got me with the purses & the left over patio stuff.

At least I didn't forget to get my cotton balls.
