My ADD is kickin me

OK, I don't really have ADD I am just being an ASS! Well, perhaps all of us have a bit of ADD in our ASS.. lol. Yes, you now see.. I have no idea where I am going when I start typing and my mind just carries me into odd places.
It is a wonder I can keep up with myself, or perhaps I am not keeping up with myself, but trying to just put the puzzle together.

So today I am thinking about the Comfy Couch in my head. It is very full today and I need to do something about this. Are you lost yet or do you also have a comfy couch? Perhaps you are one of those with the plastic chair, let me know what you think you are after you read my whirly twirly words.

I am one of the types of people that constantly think about family, friends, past and present. So, if you have entered my life, you have sat on my comfy couch, most likely a few times. Sometimes, I may even try to wish you away, usually it doesn't work. Really, what this means is that I am constantly thinking of people. Sometimes wondering if I am thought about too. There are days where people sit there all day and there are days people run through and just grab a soda on the way out... and sometimes they are not so nice and start poking .. and it hurts. Some people tell me that I think too much. How do you think too much? I do not consider myself book smart (intelligent) but I think when it comes to people I have some smarts. I went to college and I studied Psychology and Sociology. I think I have always had an interest in people and how they interact. So, I guess constantly thinking about people is just a part of me. I like knowing that I have a comfy couch in my head, then people who are dear to me know that they are thought about and appreciated.  Sometimes it is hard because the people I think about have hurt me in some way, perhaps not intentionally but still hurt is hurt. Though there are a TON of people who have shown me nothing but care, hapiness and love.  Do you think that our brains are actually capable of much more than we use them for? I think this is true, we just need to know how to tap into that power we may have.

As I sit and write this, like when I write all of my post, I see my ADD kicking my ASS. Ha, where am I going, what am I writing and trying to say. I guess more so just writing what is on my mind!

Happy Monday - linking with Java @ Never Growing Old

Meet Me On Monday


1.  What jewelry do you wear 24/7?

I wear the ring that was my graduation present. I hadn't worn this ring in some time. When my ex came over one time he looked at my hand and said "Nice, new ring!" Um, this is the one I got for my graduation... remember YOU were there!!!

I wear a necklace that a dear friend bought me for Christmas a year and a half ago.

Earrings.. I change them every NOW and THEN....
2.  Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it? TWIRLLLLLLLLLLLLLL - why oh why would you cut, its so much fun to suck in the spaghetti that un twirls.

3.  How many siblings do you have?

OK, this is a fun one.... (keeps fingers crossed nobody gets offended..) I have two sisters that share the same mom and sperm donor.  I have one sister that shares my mom. I have three (but I only count two) brothers that came with my dad when he married my mom. My mom is married to Bill, who has 4 children

4.  Were you named after anyone?

Yes! My mom named me after a "harlot".. Well, it was an older book and from what I hear it was quite steamy! - maybe this is why I should be an adult phone entertainer - eh mom? (Inside joke, here) - OK My mom really didn't name me after the book.. but I guess my grandma went crazy when she found out that is what my mom was naming me, due to the book!

5.  Coke or Pepsi? Pepsi!!! Diet, after all I am diabetic!

Physics In MY kitchen, say what?

So, I have a friend who is very SCIENTIFIC, he is in school and started a blog. I went to visit his blog and was like .. UM OK!! What is this? Not that it is not very well written. My brain just is not scientific. So, he decided to ask me some questions and have me answer them, then he gives me the SCIENTIFIC answer.. so here goes!

1. Why my Gas Lighter sparks if i press a button even if it has got no battery? Because I am standing near it!! DUH
2. Why food in pressure cooker cooks faster? – water boils at a higher temperature under pressure. (Ha, don’t we all?)
3. Why water boils quicker in High Altitudes than in plains? Same … Atmospheric Pressure!!
4. How My exhaust fan or exhaust Chimney work? It SUCKS.. haha Sucks the air OUT
5. Why will a bowl float in water and a spoon does not? A spoon has a flat end…
6. How does a microwave oven work? Ahh

OK now the real Scientific answers from my Friend from  

Question no. 1 ....The lighters that dont need a battery and still gives out an electric spark is due to a physical phenomena called piezoelectricity.  Piezoelectricity is the phenomena where mechanical pressure is converted into electrical energy - 

 Question 2... As pressure is elevated in the pressure cooker the boiling point of the liquid rises..normally when the surface pressure of a liquid becomes equal to the atmospheric pressure, we call the corresponding temperature to b the boiling point of the liquid, thus rising the pressure, bp increases letting the liquid stay liquid even if temperature is higher than bp..

Question 3...with altitude atmospheric pressure liquids attain atmospheric pressure at lower temp. than in plains 

Question 4... an exhaust fan converts rotational motion into a thrust...A pressure difference is produced between the forward and rear surfaces of the specially shaped blade, and air  is accelerated behind the blade, that is, if you turn a screw it moves forward or reverse depending upon the direction of rotation... so happens in the case of a exhaust fan..if u move the blades clock wise air moves forward... and counter clock wise air moves backward.

Question 5...a body floats in a liquid, in this case water, if the weight of the water displaced by it is more than or equal to its weight. Spoon has got a smaller volume and higher mass, ie. high density, therefore when it is thrown in water; the water displaced is less, thus the weight of the displaced water is less than the weight of the spoon. And it submerges. While a bowl has got a large surface area thus it can displace volume of water more than a spoon, so the weight of the water displaced by a bowl is equal to the weight of the weight of the bowl and hence it floats (Archimedes Principle)

Question 6.... a microwave oven sends out microwaves of high vibration, wanna know how fast? i bet you'll have to leave the poorly finger counting that u do.. it is approximately 2500000000 vibration a second.. and what happens such high vibrations makes the water, other food material molecules vibrate and such tremendous pace of vibrations gives out heat and heats up our food stuffs...what if your rub your hands even 1/10000 times the microwave vibration? You wont see even a bit of flesh left on your bones...I wonder bones may burn out too....

I  will be linking up with Joyce @  From This Side of the Pond - (as my mommy says)

Corned Beef and Hodgepodge

Here are the questions for this week's Hodgepodge...thanks for playing along!
Answer the questions on your own blog then come back here tomorrow (Wednesday) to link your answers with the rest of the internets.

1. What would you do if you found a pot of gold? Let's pretend this pot of gold is worth exactly $1500 (which would actually be more like a cup of gold at current values). Anyway, let's also pretend you have to spend it as opposed to making a donation someplace. Now tell me what you would do with that cup pot of gold?
 HMM.. this one I skipped... lets see $1,500.00 - First I would take me and my lil one to a day at the spa.. to include Massage, nails and toenails. LONG OVER DUE. Cost ... 400-500.?
That leaves $1,000.00 - I think it would be a day of play! Problem is I am a true CANCER and most likely I would take the money and put it in my savings account. Perhaps taking $200.00 out to have fun with!!

2. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form?
Sometimes...  and sometimes ... and perhaps sometimes I just
3. Have you been bitten by the Spring Cleaning bug? What spring cleaning job most needs doing at your house? What spring cleaning job are you most dreading?  -
OMG I swatted the bug before he could bite me!!! Dang thing! NO I don't wanna and you can't make me! HUH! I have so many Spring cleaning jobs, can we not talk about this? LOL, drawers, closets, ugh!

4. lime-shamrock-sage-forest...your favorite shade of green? Sage!

5. Thomas Jefferson once said, "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." you believe in luck or do you believe we make our own luck?
Tough one! I believe life is what it is! Sometimes we make our luck and sometimes luck just comes along. Sometimes what we think may be luck turns out NOT to be!

6. Monday (3/14) was Pi Day. Get it? Pi =3.14. Those math types are so clever aren't they? Since I'm not one of them tell me what's your favorite piE (the edible kind).
These questions are so hard... Favorite Pie.. only ONE? Hmmm, I guess Cherry! I used to work at Denny's and we had tons of pies, Chocolate cream was a good one, and the Neon green keylime was good too! Ha!

7. That same date (3/14) happens to be the birthdate of the late physicist Albert Einstein. I bet he knew the value of Pi. So...what do you think is more important and or valuable in life... intelligence or common sense? Common Sense!!!
Intelligence is highly over rated. I have known a few "intelligent people" and gosh, lots of them are s'cuse my language - Assholes! Perhaps to be truely intelligent you need both? Often people tell me they see me as "smart" but I have them all fooled! I just know how to communicate with people! Honestly, I am not sure WHAT I remember from College, if anything and I did get good grades. GO FIGURE!

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am new to this blogging, and am sure I am screwing some major things up. Trying to add people, add pictures.. do this do that... I have to keep getting help from my mom... gotta love MOMS! I have added a few people and I will visit more in depth soon. Love, LOVE the pages I have seen so far. Such creativity.. makes me feel under par.. Way to go blogger friends of mine - YOU ROCK!!!

Friday Friday!!!

Hellooooo Out there!

OK, So what strikes me today? I am supposed to be blogging at least every other day according to my mom. So, I am trying to keep up here. 
It is Friday and what does the weekend bring? Well, I want to go out and have happy hour on Saturday, most likely I will end up not going, but who knows. My kiddo has dinner plans with her dad and his family so we will see. I am also planning on getting my new phone. Excited - except for the fact that I will be spending money on it. Oh well... I have thrown money away on more idiotic things.. (as I roll my eyes thinking about all of the stupid things I have done.) 
I am a chatter by nature, love to chat on line. Love to talk and listen to people. On line chatting is fun because nobody seems to be real. Sometimes, its just about a quick fix. It is a playground and I like to seesaw. When I used to be a chat junkie - people would tell me after they met me that I am the same online as I am in person. Guess, I just like to be goofy. Of course there are times to be serious, but for the most part I just try to have fun.

I am not sure I am feeling it today - I can tell as I write in this post. I think I am just tired. Have not slept well due to me and the kid being ill this week. :-( 

MOM, I will do my best next week, and try to link up!

Im trying...

OK, So I am trying to figure out how to LINK to another blog.. not doing it right, and oddly enough I have to wait to hear from my mom to figure it out. See, it has always been ME helping my MOM with computer stuff.. ha now she gets to help me!! Enlightening!!!! Love you mom!

So, I was speaking with another friend.. and he we were talking about his relationship with his wife. They have a baby, under a year. He was talking about her drive and the lack of it. So, I was helping him with some ideas of what he could do to help out in that area. I think that sometimes media makes people think the wrong things. I do not need jewelry or flowers all the time. Simply I just need to know that you care for me! Yes, in your mind you might think that you are loving me the right way, but it is NOT what I really am needing. To be fair, I may be loving you, but not the way you need. I took a test a week ago, had my friend take it too. It is called "Love Languages". Not that I didn't already realize this.. but it made it more clear. What does someone do that tells me they love me? Well for ME it is more of a do things for me... NOT grand things.. small things. This is called Acts of Service. That was my top, the other four are Words of affirmation.. hey to me words are just words...., Quality time (yes this is good. and I love to spend time with my man.. but what is making me feel loved in this? Receiving gifts, oh of course we all like gifts.. but really a DVD player.. Tinted windows... umm no thanks, yes I like the trinket you bought me.. but did you put time and thought into it, or just run to the nearest jewelry store and "grab and go"? Physical touch.. oh yah anyone who knows me .. knows I MELT with a massage, light touch... no deep tissue here..I really have paid my daughter $5.00 a massage, told her she could make $10 a week.. (and no, she doesn't) Still love you kiddo. Back to the issue at hand though, and keep in mind this is ME, not you or her, or him.. we all feel loved in different ways. So, perhaps I am doing small things for my loved one and it is not making him feel loved. Breakfast made for you, taking out the trash so you don't have to.... in my mind I am doing it all right.

I explained to my friend that sometimes without prompting let your wife now how beautiful she is to you, and mind your wording. We do not want to hear You're hot. How about something with a bit of romance? Honey, you look so beautiful, the way the light is reflecting off of your hair, your skin is so soft, I want to run kisses up and down you. Make it about her! Not you. Men, most of the time us women think it is always about you.. right or wrong.. this is true! Don't have the attitude that I "owe" her.. if you think you owe her, so what..make her feel like you WANT to do it.. and FOLLOW through!
IF you love her isn't she worth it? We all know that women are emotional creatures. SO PUT some EMOTION into it! Really it comes down to learning your partner, hence why they say relationships are WORK, though at the end of the day if it is what and who we want, we work hard for it!

***Please keep in mind that I am speaking in generalities, of course not all women and men are the same. I am not man bashing here either. I also have lots to learn!

We have so many emotions and understanding them can sometimes be hard. Why do we feel the way we do? Is this really Anger, Love, Pain...What am I feeling and more important, why?

I was talking with a friend and we were discussing Jealousy. Ohhhhh yes, the big bad thing that nobody wants to admit that they are, but often we want someone to be jealous about us, let me explain.

The conversation was about someone telling him he was just jealous of a certain person because she doesn't work, and here he is waking early in the morning to go to work and pay his bills, while she stays home all day doesn't lift a finger to clean the house, she cooks for her boyfriend (the other roomates eat their own food) but then she leaves the "community" kitchen a mess. He said I am not jealous I hate her! Hmmm, no I disagree. You are jealous, and this is not abnormal. Think about it, who would NOT be jealous of someone who can sit and do nothing all day, and have people that are paying her way. I mean I will admit sometimes I do not want to go to work and the thought of staying home and doing NOTHING is appealing. Unfortunately, what some of us are built with are Ethics and Morals and even if we were to stay at home all day, we undoubtedly would be doing SOMETHING. We may do some laundry, dust or vacuum, make dinner (you know the "house person" work, and by the end of the day, ok maybe a week, we would be so bored with being at home that we are ready to go back to work! So, back to the story, Sure he is Jealous of what she gets to do, and in the end it makes him "hate" her a bit. Well not really HER though. He hates the fact that she is ok with sitting at home doing absolutely NOTHING to help out anyone, yes watch your tv, play your games, eat your bon bons. Sometimes, I think the emotions may come from how we end up thinking about ourselves also. Why am I the person that does EVERYTHING, how can  I stop this?
