The Zoo and other wild adventures

So yesterday I didn’t post. No excuse really, I fell asleep after a nice bath to soak my bones and muscles. It was a long day and I didn’t have the energy to do much after I put my kids to sleep.

So, onto the days activities (or yesterdays).

So I woke up and called my daughter’s teacher explaining that I couldn’t get her the vaccination and she said she’d call me back. She called me back and said that she’d work it out when I got to the class. We went to the class and there seemed to be no problems. Fantastic. Afterward it was a drive to the Zoo, waiting and then we got to go inside the zoo!

Well a zoo, like any other zoo, has a lot of animals and involves a lot of walking. With a two year old and a four year old (the forgotten stroller at home) it was a long day of looking and making sure they didn’t run away too far from me. Now this was probably one of the many times I’ve considered getting those child leashes. It was a lot of chasing and, sadly, yelling to make sure that my daughter didn’t run too far off with her friend Nate. Now I’m 25, I’m not old, I just don’t move very fast because I like to relax as I go. On top of that I was also carrying my son the entire time because he didn’t want to walk very often. Up, down, stop go. It was a long day and probably would have been better had I remembered the stroller for my son. >_<

We saw lots of animals. Giraffes I think was my daughter’s favorite along with the bear and the elephants and the monkeys and the horses.

I think my favorite part was either dancing on the endangered animal carousel between my kids OR! Petting the stingrays. They feel slimey but it’s awesome and my daughter got to touch one. Unfortunately she dropped the shrimp so she didn’t get to feed them. Yeah I’m weird but dancing on a carousel is hard because the centripetal force throws off your balance a little.

Also I think I took on Best Dressed Mom yesterday. I wore my black and white sundress with black goth boots and messy bun hair (which got messier from the son on the shoulders).

So it was a good day, long day and my kids had a ton of fun and I got to dance. All around win. It was even more win that my kids fell asleep almost the moment I started the car. It was cute and I’ll post the blurry pictures on twitpic here in a bit.

God of War Fail… Or not really

Okay, so I didn’t post a blog last night. My apologies. I’m sort of addicted to watching people play this trilogy of games, God of War. I watched my ex play through one and two and my brother got three a few days ago and last night I was watching him play until four in the morning…. well sort of. I fell asleep about 3 or four times in the process of watching him play but I was doing that last night instead of producing a fantastic blog for everyone to read. Why? Because I could and because I wanted to watch the epicness that is God of War. On top of that I was really a little (lot) disappointed with Alice in Wonderland.

Yeah! I’m a big Alice in Wonderland fan and I went to finally see Alice in Wonderland yesterday, as excited to see it as I’ve ever been, and I left feeling empty inside. It was like the movie was the perfect soup, it had all of the right ingredients but something was still off about it. I mean I think that making Alice in Wonderland dark and all that is a fantastic idea. I loved the cast, the director but not the movie. I think this movie was by far my biggest let down of a movie that I had ever seen. I don’t see many movies in theaters and I feel like I sort of wasted my time with watching this one instead of waiting until it came out on DVD. I probably should have just waited for Prince of Persia. Sadly? I think the credits were my favorite part. <_<

I think that’s it for my yesterday updates.

Today! I went to the Arboretum with my mum and kids and my mum’s friend Hilary and her kids. It was the first time I have been and it was enjoyable. It was like a nice long nature walk. Fun. I’m pretty sore from the adventure mostly because I don’t exercise a lot but I am thinking about taking up Yoga. I find that the Wii Fit *when I could find the silly thing* made me really happy with the Yoga stuff. I think I’ll be buying myself a new Wii and a new Wii fit since I have to send mine to my ex. I just need something calming that I think I need to start and end the day out with. Nothing too intense because it exhausts me and I prefer to relax and be more aware.

I’m putting together my newest webcomic. Another one that I will probably be the only one that understands the joke but if you want to understand it then please feel free to ask me, I’m always glad to fill you in on my bizarre bit of humor.

Okay, I’d probably talk and prattle on more but my brother is playing God of War and I have a comic to post tomorrow!
Hope you’re having a good day! ^_^

TAKE THAT SPAM BITCHES!

Okay, I admit. I forgot to enable the Akismet spam checker right from the get go but now it’s on so stop bothering me you spam fuckers! I loathe spam with a fire hotter then hell! Spam is one of those evils that you wish would just die a burning death and then the world would be happier, but I doubt it. It would be one less thing for me to gripe about so I would need to find a new something to gripe about and that wouldn’t be fun…. Okay, it would be fun but I would pretend not to like it.

Things that I did today? I moved my stuff out of storage and into a garage! Real improvement huh? Well the rent is cheaper to store the same amount of stuff. After the storage stuff I cleaned.

You know what sucks about the storage thing though? My brother Kyle promised to help with it and yet when it came down to it he wouldn’t. Now I understand that he worked the graveyard last night but he knew that I was doing this today and he knew I needed his help and yet when I asked if he was ready all I got was “bitch, bitch, bitch”. Now I knew I shouldn’t be too demanding, he was supposed to be doing me a favor but that’s not the point. He promised he’d help and then he decided it was too hard and then he just didn’t help. It’s really stupid because he does this a lot and then he expects me to do things for him and be nice to him. He doesn’t quite understand that it doesn’t work that way, whatever. I guess next time he needs help really badly It will just be too hard to do it because I stayed up too late the night before and my kids woke me up too early.

I think I lost my train of thought for today. I cleaned I loved I moved stuff. There isn’t much more to the day.

The other day I saw an epic bike cop setup for catching red light runners on a “No turn on red” talk about hiding in plain site. He was sitting on the sidewalk of the freeway bridge. He owned someone as I passed by.

Website wise I didn’t get much done today. I am considering coding an IP.Content Wiki and I almost have all of the default Smilies replaced with my Ebi1 R0ot ones. Ebi1 is one cute spork. He still hates me for that.  I hope some more people join soon but probably not. It’s not all that great and all that jazz but I can be hopeful. I need more then one person to talk to. It gets boring only talking to a single person.

I think that’s it for tonight. I don’t feel extremely talkative so I hope you’re having a good day.

Divorced

Just wanted to let you all know… it is official! I am divorced. It was about an hour of deliberation in ERC (Early Resolution Council I think) and my ex is insane and obviously doesn’t know how much it costs to take care of two kids. Like seriously….. whatever though… Totally over it. He thinks he’s poor and picked on. I’m taking care of two kids, living at home without a job…. still…. after a year of freakin’ looking I still don’t have a job. I hate the job market. T_T It really sucks being out of the job industry for almost 4 years now, especially when my major was in a computer industry. 4 years lost in Computers is like 20 years lost in work… it seems impossible to catch up sometimes.

Well….. yay being divorced and now onto bigger and better things.

I’m considering writing a web comic. Maybe. I’m not too funny so it would be interesting…. That being said… I’m also not a very good artist so it would be interesting. ALTHOUGH! I did put the spork for Wootflakes onto the computer after my brother sort of designed him with my inspiration…. He’s not all that great though. It’s an idea though.

Have a good day everyone. ^_^

Cosmic Powers that be… aka My Brother David

I believe in a lot of stuff and cosmic powers and protection of the dead and all of that sort of thing is part of it. I know that I am not always the nicest of people, I actually am a bottler, I prefer to keep it all inside until the bottle gets too full to keep the lid on and then it bubbles out and eventually erupts like someone shook it up.

To those that experience this…. I apologize. I don’t mean to lash out at you but most of the time I don’t properly channel my rage.
That being said. I would like to specifically apologize to Neph. You’re probably one of my best friends and I don’t mean to take any of my angry energy out on you.

Over the years I’ve worked on it… you guys should have seen me 7 years ago, just out of high school…. But this doesn’t mean that I have it completely under control and I’m sorry.

As for the subject of this… I think that my recent upset, fueled by my dead brother David’s birthday  -which is today mind you – was helped along by my brother. My unintentional rage got me banned from a favorite site of mine without warning… which I take offense to since I have been a part of this site for a year. I think that a warning, suspension or something a little more appropriate then an outright ban for snippy behavior, would have been more appropriate but who cares? I’ve taken the motto C’est La Vie for a reason. I think this reason was because my brother was trying to tell me that I need to calm down and start easing myself back into things I really enjoy instead of spending my time in an alternate reality with other people, that it’s time for me to probably start making my alternate realities and writing my own stuff again, take up my old hobbies, design websites again…. to really settle myself in my head instead of letting a whole bunch of other people dictate my musedom.

For this I love my brother even though I hate what happened (and the way it happened) and I hate not being able to enjoy the people there that I enjoyed for so long. To those that I hurt their feelings. I’m sorry loves.

I hoped you all have a fantastic day. <3333

PS. I’m going to get a comparison picture of my son and my brother David to show how much they look alike…. it’s uncanny.

Website Staring Contest

So I went to war (as you probably could have seen from my twitter pictures) and have returned. Unfortunately since I’ve returned I’ve mostly stared at my websites like I didn’t know what they were or where they came from. Perhaps an after affect of pretending like the world hasn’t progressed in a few centuries as of a few centuries ago. It could be the reason why I had to come back from war early.

So… there I was! I was waking up on another frosty morning from war. My kids were making me laugh and I was enjoying there warm and fuzzy company when I find out that my mum had left the previous night. Confused and hungry my kids and I got up to get food.
After we scavenged for something to eat forever (about 5 minutes of looking in totes) we were told to call mom…..
Even more confused I pick up my faerie box, also known as a cell phone, and dial my mother…. it rang…. it rang again…. then she didn’t answer.
So! I left her a voicemail.
A few minutes later my faerie box (cell phone) began to sing the sweet tune of the Mario Brothers melody telling me that someone wished to speak to me from an unearthly realm so I pressed the green button to hear the melodic, depressed voice of my mother. I asked her what she needed me to call her about to find that my stepdad had moved out, taking everything of expensive value (the HD, plasma TV and all of the bedroom furniture) out of the house and spliting.
This was bad… particularly bad since we were at War and the only way we got there was with his truck and a trailer that he used to move the stuff out with.

After all of that amazing stuff we packed up camp and came home.

None of us kids want my stepdad back in the house but mum does so we’re waiting to see. We aren’t going to help much because we think that my stepdad’s douchebaggery crossed the line finally so yeah….. I had a not so good week but its gotten better since I have gotten home and talked to all of my buddies, Neph and Savvy and Sparky and people.

On another note!

I decided to go back looking for a way to earn a decent income online. I truly don’t think it’s possible but I still try while I still look for a job. really what I need to find is an awesome company that needs Internet tech support that can do their work from whereever as long as they have Internet connections, and do that. It would be fabulous. Unfortunately I don’t know if they do that. /sigh Well other ventures will be looked into.

I guess in a sense I have a question for you all…. what would you think about me starting a general tech support service. A small like, 5 dollar fee for me to help tech troubleshoot things for like half an hour. I mean it’s not much but I’m pretty good at what I do so I mean it might be worth it. I’m thinking about looking into it. That or a low cost web design thing. I’m not a phenomenal web designer but I think I do an alright job. I’m going to post a poll and see what you all think…. if anyone actually reads my blog… and I hope you guys give me some good stuff. 😀 Thanks in advance.
