Don't mess with the mama

Dear KTBird,
I am assuming that is your nickname and not just some dumb thing you decided would look cute on a licence plate. But could you do the rest of us a favor. The next time you need to make such and important cell phone call while taking a ciggy break, please find some place other than the exit of the freaking parking lot to do it. Thanks to you I had to drive around the God damn mall another 20 minutes to find a freaking parking spot. I saw the dirty look you gave me when I got fed up and zoomed around you. Don't think it even made a dent. After 15 years of my ex, you could throw arrows in my direction and I wouldn't flinch. Be glad I don't have a range Rover or I would have driven over your sorry tobacco scented ass.

To the guy who thought I stole his parking spot,
I saw it first, and I was faster so suck it up and deal with it. Keep your damn finger to yourself. Your testosterone fueled rage is no match for a sleep deprived, hormonaly challanged, manic episoded single mother who really doesn't want to be at the mall on a Saturday three weeks before Christmas, especially on a day when it was 35 degrees, a temperature that my ND standards is positively tropical for this time of year. Be glad all you got was a finger. If you had gotten out of your car we would both be wearing orange and sleeping with the light on.

Can you tell I'm just a little this side of cranky today. I think I have blown up at Warren so many times he's taken to calling me Hiroshima. Okay not really, but that's how I feel.

Remind me never to put off my depo shot this long again, pap or no pap. I can't remember the last time I was this pissed at no one and everyone.

While Warren was looking for the right way to spend the Christmas money he got from my (no so little) brother, I did what any cranky, sleep deprived and hormonally challanged woman would do. Sadly there was no chocolate involved, however I did finally get rid of my well past expiration hiking boots and am now the proud owner of a nice comfy pair of black boots that actually fit right and keep my feet dry. So I guess it wasnt' a total loss.

Last night Warren and I went to see the Chronicles of Narnia. It was definately the best adaptation I have seen of the book, far surpassing the animated movie, or the PBS/BBC version. It was well done, the effects were great, the actors were great, and they stayed true to the story. But yet I can't escape the feeling that something was missing, though I can't put my finger on exactly what. It has been years since I read any of Lewis' books. I read the series in college and later I read LW&W to Warren when he was about 6 or 7. I think I need to go back and re-read the books. While yes the story could be said to be ripped from teh new Testament in many ways, I think much of what is says about good, evil, friendship and sacrifice could apply to any religious point of view, or to some extent even to an athiestic/agnostic one. The symbolism is there, though it doesn't hit you over the head with it, it can't be denied either. Oh and ours also showed trailers for both the next Pirates of the Carribbean (damn Johnny looks better than ever), Jack Sparrow on a spit - yummy, and Ice Age two - love that prehistoric squirrell and his ever getting lost nut.

I also seemed to have been bitten by some kind of baking bug. This morning I made pancakes for the boys (did I mention Jasper showed up at our house at 8 freaking am on a non work day. I also made banana bread, peanut butter-oatmal-chocolate chip cookies, and an apple crisp. I'm not sure why the sudden need to get oven happy, but it was like I was possesed with a need to bake bake, bake. Right now I am fighting the urge to make lemon squares, or fudge or both. If this keeps up, we are all going to weigh 500 pounds. On the brightside, my house smells wonderful.

I took the boys sledding at the Dike earlier and I could barely keep my eyes open, now that I am home I seem to be awake again. OF course it helps that TNT is running The Two Towers (The Ents go marching two by two..sorry don't ask only one person who reads this would get it anyway). Even considering its been cut to death for commercials its still my fav of the LOTR movies.

Oh and if you are wondering what is going on with my layout, I can't afford to pay for gold right now (maybe when Xmas bonuses come, depending on what they give this year), so I am using a free hosting service, but I'm to lazy to find and move all my images, so I'm only doing the main ones now.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
