It appears to me that bad fashion sense has become a fad. Bad clothes, ill fitting clothes, bad, ridiculous and outrageous hair styles as well. It seems like if there's one click of ladies or men, who are fashion nerds, there are scores of idiots who see them and think, "cool I must look like these people". OMG Why and how are people so blind to how bad they dress or how awful their hair is? I wonder if it ever occurred to people who wear bad hair styles, to ever open up a hair style magazine. If they did, they would see no one in it is wearing the hair style they are sporting. And in some cases they can go back a few hundred issues to see that their hair style hasn't been in vogue since perhaps circa 1976 or 1984. There are so many who blindly think that skin tight dresses emphasizing an enormous ass is the way to go. Or wearing pants so low that drawers or thongs show is cool, sexy, classy or as we say in Chicago "sharp". I'm sorry but it seems like fashion itself is getting ridiculous. Selling men's shorts that go down to the ankles makes me want to vomit blood. Birkenstocks need to be outlawed for being FUGLY as satanic beings. So do most styles Earth shoes and all their other arch support "good for your feet" sisters and European cousins. I spent a fraction on a pair of Mephisto thong sandals at and got lots of compliments. Mephisto has some great styles lately. Just as good as Birkenstock if not better. Sofft makes both pretty and comfortable sandals and shoes and lower prices as well. There is no financial excuse for bad dressing or wearing ill fitting clothes. Both me and a BFF can go to TJ Max and get stuff off a final clearance rack and come out looking like Salma Hayek or Halle Berry. Hell I can go to a resale shop and come out with an awesome outfit. So no excuses people. I don't wanna hear it.

After watching the Gene Simmons Family Jewels episode where Gene follows (stalks) his kids on their Mexico trip, and saw a tour they did where they went zip lining aka aerial rope sliding. I WANT TO DO THAT! If any of ya'll don't know, but I am the girl Indiana Jones. I live for an adventure. Yup, done the bungee jumping, parasailing, white water rapid rafting, hot air ballooned, tattoos. If it's crazy, I've probably done it. If I can climb Kings Canyon in 104 degree heat, why can't I just zip line across one? I'm 50 now, so this should be a cake walk right? How complicated can this really be? I think it should be glorious. But where can I do this in the U.S.? Do I have to go to Panama or Mexico?

On a whim me and H. walked to Union Station and took a bus called Megabus to Milwaukee. Well we got our tickets and left a little later. They only charged us a couple dollars! When I use to see the ads a couple years ago, I thought it was a gimmick with a big catch. Well apparently not.
At Summerfest we saw that Paramour/No Doubt were doing a show at 7Pm. H. got tickets and we walked around. We saw lots of acts including some interesting Colombian or was it Equadorian musicians with guitars and whistles that hypnotised us. They were awesome. At seven the Paramour/No Doubt show started. Gwen was the bomb. After that we headed down towards the Harley Davidson stage. Along the way, Matisyahu was playing I think the Oasis stage. OMG he's a sight but can he JAM. He's so good, I'd trade my old Sean Paul cds for his. He's a bona fide reggae star. After awhile there, and as much as it personally pained us to walk away I had to see Judas Priest as they are one of my top 10 favourite bands of all time. Not to mention the fact that they were the main reason for even going to Summerfest. It was weather perfection. It couldn't have been more perfect. It was about 72 and overcast all day but there wasn't a drop of rain. On the beginning of the road trip, I Googled "Milwaukee B&B's" and the first one I called had a room available for a hundred bucks! It was awesome and we were fed well. Very very well. So well that a frogurt with fruit from Berry Chill on State Street was all we had that evening. We - I had fun. Dancing in the aisles at No Doubt, like (according to "H") a cross between Cindy Lauper and Gwen Stefani. And then head banging to metal tunes (still remembering all the words) by Priest like "Breaking the Law". LOL My comment to dat...... I may be 50 but I still ROCK!

I work in a physician's office and as I grabbed a couple patient charts, to get ready to call a couple patients to put in rooms. I spy the name of one of them and had to leave the area for a fit of hysteria. I infected the rest of the staff once I pointed to the chart. I was in tears and doubled over. I had one of those hyperventilation laugh attacks.
The patient's name was Marsha Fuks. Yes Fuks!
Marsha - Marsha - Marsha. Why did you keep this name????????? In all these years living in the U.S.A. why did you not ever change this?
Maybe she's related to Joseph Kaka. Yes we had one of those a few years back and still tell the story about him to our office newbys.
The tech grabbed a chart from the bin getting ready to call out the patient's name, when he paused. He thought, Oh hell no!, then decided to mispronounce it so that we didn't have a fit of laughter in our waiting room. He pronounced it as Mr Cake-ka. The gentleman popped up out of his seat and with his index finger straight up, corrected our man, saying, "It is Ka-ka". After the tech told me this, I did fall on the floor laughing. We all did again later at the end of the day when he told the rest of the staff and doctor.
Well in this hellish economy, I have little luxuries, one is Vosges chocolate and the other is laughter.
Thanks Mrs Fuks. I fuckin' needed that.

This week the sandwich king Subway, officially became charlatans 9.5 on a scale from 1 to 10.
I went in for a roast beef sandwich, Dasani and chips and paid $ 6.44.
At the end of the transaction, I got a receipt that said, “get $1.00 off your next 12” sandwich and 50¢ off of your 6”.
So today, being a nice day in the low 70’s, I went out again for the same thing.
The bill was $6.42.
I was stunned. I said to the clerk, “I don’t get it. Where am I getting 50¢ off here?”
Pointing out the bill total from the yesterdays receipt, saying that I had the exact same thing and that I’m only being charged 2¢ less.
Their answer to me was that the discount applied to sale of a sandwich only and not their meal. When you buy a sandwich with chips and a drink you are being charged for a “meal”. A fixed, bundled price.
Me,“Who the hell orders a sandwich only? Nice scam you’ve got going here”. I said it loud enough for everyone to hear. I got the 50¢ off my bill right away.
I recon it was “hush” money. LOL Lower your volume and get the hell out.
Subway, you are almost as bad as AIG corp. Rip off artists. Bottom line.
I was charged for each item individually. Thus giving me a total of a whopping 2¢ discount.

Right! This guy is totally demented. He was arrested for putting his hyper kitten in his bong. With intention of mellowing it out.
God, I thought, I had heard it all. What a retard!
Here's a part of the full article.
Schomaker allegedly told deputies the kitten was high strung and needed to be put in the bong to keep it calm.
“The cat appeared to be very lethargic, somewhat in a sleeping state,” Jarrett said.
Capital Humane Society officials said they have taken X-rays and done other tests to see if the kitten has any long-term affects from the alleged abuse.
“The individual stated he had done this several times,” agent Bob Downey said.
The shelter workers said they are working with the sheriff's office and the county attorney to get custody of the animal so it can be put up for adoption.
“We'll find a home where it will not be subjected to this type of treatment anymore,” Downey said.
Schomaker was cited for misdemeanor animal cruelty.
That charge could be upgraded to a felony if the kitten dies or has long-term effects from the alleged abuse.
A misdemeanor conviction could mean up to a year in jail time, a felony conviction would put Schomaker away for up to five years.

Retarded persons are more brilliant than this loser.

What ever happened to the word "there"? I woke up one day and the word there disappered from the English language. What happened to it? I notice on t.v. people interviewed on the news saying......."It was a big fire and it was too many flames to run in the house to save our stuff" Or "It was a lot of water. Our car got flooded and now half our house got flooded"..... Then there's "It was a lot of people at the concert in the park. Maybe over a thousand" I'm at a loss. When did this go into effect? I didn't get the memo. I didn't hear about it on the news. I didn't read about it in the newspaper. Perhaps it went to the same place the word all right went. I don't know.
If you know what happened to it? R.S.V.P. and Thanks

Well it happened. I turned 50. I had a hell of a past few months but I'm much better now. I was not well. I was so unwell I thought I'd lose my mind. When you feel like shit and it doesn't get better, not only is it depressing it's stressful as well.
I turned 50 somewhere between being in agony and getting a lot better.
I'd prefer to not post the details but I got personal emails from a few bloggers with well wishes and I thank you for your thoughtfulness there.
50 was not as traumatising as I thought it would be. But it still sucks. I had the best of dinners, and hit the club scene with 4 of my best peeps and then got presented with a gorgeous blue topaz ring (gargantuan sized) diamond cut in white gold. It's a masterpiece and only someone who really knows me could know my taste. (That statement is meant to be a jab to the blockheads who could never get it right) It's beautiful. I like large sized jewelry. I'm not into dainty piddly things.
Will post again soon.
Just wanted all to know I'm alive and well and planning to go to Manhattan soon.
