Hair Length, Crazy Glue (Kola Loca), & Koolaid Disasta!

It's time to measure my hair again. Mostly it's time because I'm going to get it cut tonight (ok not cut....trimmed and shaped....cleaned up!). The length it is now is probably the longest it's been and while I am proud of it, it is long and heavy and gets in the way and is kind of a pain in the ass. I'm not shitting you, it actually tickles my ass its so long. So here are he measurements from previous:

September 13th, 2006 - 20 inches
November 8th, 2006 - 21 inches
January 3rd, 2007 - 22.5 inches
March 27th, 2007- 23.5 inches

And today, on June 27th, my hair length is...drumroll please.......

June 27th, 2007 - 25.5 inches

Isn't that like almost two feet from my head? Oh well. It shall decrease this evening.

Here's a pic of that it looks like from the back:Picture Taken By Lisa Love

I think I forgot to mention that right in the middle of my moving madness, I got really stupid. The little switch for the light in my car kept falling off and I, the crazy glue lover that I am, decided that crazy glue was EXACTLY what was needed to fix the thing. I did so during daylight and then went to do some cleaning and more moving with Beck in the old apartment and upon our return to my car, I couldn't freakin turn on my lights. And it was dark. If I didn't have STUPID written on my forhead before, I certainly do now. So anyways, we called the BF of Becky and we drove to the new place together with blinkers flashing the whole way. In the morning we went and got the new part and had it replaced and it was really all in all a simple and cheap matter to clear up. But I certainly didn't need the extra stress and the extra feeling of complete stupidity to deal with.

Of course with all of the stress and confusion going on the animals don't make it any easier. So if I'm not coming home to Moco running out the door, it's a package of grape koolaid thats been bitten through with wet gooey powder purple stuff all over the place.

Just earlier Moco had escaped for the second or third time that evening and after I had scolded her, I noticed the koolaid on the couch. In my rage I asked the 3 animals (that don't know how to talk back) who did the dirty deed and Diablo was sitting proud cuz she knew she didn't do it, Diesel looked Guilty, but then so did Moco. Because you know, asking them is the RIGHT thing to do. But oh no. It gets much better. Wayyyy better. I obviously haven't realized how much I talk to my pets or the stupid things I say to them, because just after I asked them who did it I also asked them, get ready to laugh.....


I haven't lost it completely. Oh no. No no no no no. I'm still completely NORMAL. We'll see how my hair turns out tomorrow shall we? Pray for me again....because we don't want any Britney Spears action happening. And no, I'm not gona wear a short skirt with no undies. You preeverts.

Just keep the clippers and the crazy glue away from me will ya!?

Almost there.....

The a/c is in and it works wonderfully.

The furniture was move moved on Friday night and the dudes came 15 minutes early and literally had all my big stuff out in like 20 minutes. They stunk really bad but they did a good job. They brought me my bed and thats what's important.

After the furniture was moved it it appears that all the animals are feeling a lot more at home. There was nothing like waking up on Saturday morning with all three cutie pies surrounding me in bed.

The consensus is that Becky can deal with Diablo, and even Diesel, but Moco is a bit of a handful. I knew that since the first day I rescued her. She managed to dodge two different cars and when we got a hold of her, she had spray paint all over her body. You would think she'd hate humans, but thats not the case at all. Apparently, she is also a dolly lover too. She managed to steal a nice Mexican doll from Becky's room (kind of off limits since she misbehaves when she's in there and does everything that Becky doesn't want her to do) and take off her skirt. If that's not entertainment.....I don't know what is.

There are some things that still need to be hung, like mirrors and shelves and our boiler is not connected to the gas tank yet which we really couldn't give two shits about right now since it's so hot out. But "the hombres de la casa" can figure that one out. Connecting a gas tank....not so difficult.

We still have no internet and t.v. I'm not like a t.v. addict, but I like to have the t.v. on for noise while I'm doing shit like painting my toenails, or cleaning my room or a sewing a shirt or putting on my makeup. Stuff like that. It's a little more difficult to do that when you rent a DVD. I mean the purpose of spending all that money to rent a DVD is to actually sit down and do nothing other than watch that DVD.

What else? I've been attacked by mosquitos and they all seem to LOVE my ankles and feet. It really is not much fun and I have taken chunks of skin out and will be left with plenty of scars because of it. This has been a problem for me since childhood. The mosquitos apparently like me more than anyone else and I seem to itch more than the average person. I took some Benadryl Saturday night which stopped the whole itching problem. But unfortunately, it pretty much put me to sleep. Which I guess is good but I don't like being half asleep and feeling like someone gave me some drugs. Oh wait. I gave me some drugs. DOH!

As for men, you're all still on my shitlist.

Send some roses or buy me a car or something and maybe I'll overlook it....

....for an hour.

The Latest

The hole in my wall is ready for the a/c to go in it. We just need my good friend Adrian to finish changing the voltage from 110 v to 220 v. This all means very little to me but I was told to buy the 220 a/c so I did and that it would be less costly than a 110 a/c. I like it better when people tell me what to do because it makes my life easier when I have too many decisions to make. I also like it when people help me do shit because it also makes life easier.

Adrian has really gone out of his way to do various stupid things like move my toilet paper roll and hang bamboo blinds that are really pretty and expensive but don't do such a great job of blocking out the light. (IF YOU WANT TO BUY THEM LET ME KNOW. They really are beautiful but I like like ZERO light in my bedroom when I'm tryin to sleep. They are better for the family room versus a bedroom...unless of course light doesn't bother you when you sleep.) Anyhow I'm lucky to have him around. He's not only saved me a lot of money, but also a lot of stress.

We have put in our application for a Telmex line. Well, we didn't go do it ourselves because it's just easier for Memo to go do it. Once we have our application number and todo we will call up this dude who will come out and hook us up (hopefully), just as long as we give him a little sumpin sumpin for doing so. I ain't talkin about sex either. Sex certainly talks, especially with a comprobante de domicilio, but money often talks more. And besides, with money you can buy sex. Or you can just go out to the hotel zone and hook up with some drunk horny tourist. For free!

Ok so back on track.

I'm thinking maybe Friday night might be move night (furniture move night). Was hoping for Thursday but there's still little stuff I have to get out of there. Most importantly are the two little cats that have been nothing but super troopers through this entire nightmare. Diesel too. Diesel loves Becky but we haven't had enough sit time therefore he hasn't been able to sit on her nice lap. He likes it there. It's more comfortable than mine apparently. Plus her boobs are bigger and softer than mine so he would rather hang out with her and stick his tongue in her mouth. What a typical male!

Other than that I'm tired. Exhausted physcially and emotionally. The upside tho......

I'm thinner!

Woo hoo!


I Must Have Been Kissing A Fool (Or a Serious JERK)

You Are Far
When i could have been your star
You listened to people
Who scared you to death, and from my heart
Strange that you were strong enough
To even make a start
But you'll never findPeace of mind,
Til you listen to your heart
You can never change the way they feet
Better let them do just what they will
For they will
If you let them
Steal your heart from you
Will always make a lover feel a fool
But you knew i loved you
We could have shown them all
We should have seen love through
Fooled me with the tears in your eyes
Covered me with kisses and ties
So goodbyeBut please don't take my heart
You are farI'm never gonna be your starI'll pick up the pieces
And mend my heart
Maybe i'll be strong enoughI don't know where to start
But i'll never find
Peace of mind
While i listen to my heart
PeopleYou can never change the way they feel
Better let them do just what they will,
For they willIf you let them
Steal your heart
And peopleWill always make a lover feel a fool
But you knew i loved you
We could have shown them all
But remember this
Every other kiss
That you ever give
Long as we both live
When you need the hand of another man
One you really can surrender withI will wait for you
Like i always do
There's something there
That can't compare with any other
You are far
When i could have been your star
You listened to people
Who scared you to death, and from my heart
Strange that i was wrong enough
To think you'd love me too
I guess you were kissing a fool
You must have been kissing a fool

Things Coming Together?

Ok so the update on things is that we got the keys to the apartment and did the whole deposit and first months rent thing. The landlady gave me a contract but she's got to go to the notary with it. She was going away over the weekend so it was a bit of a rush job and she turned the apartment over to me all dirty and bleck with construction dust everywhere. That's like harder to clean than my apartment if I left it dirty for a couple of months.

The bestest news is that we can all have sex now because I do have a comprobante de domicilio.

Also good news is that Becky is moved in, and the other good news is that it looks like we might be able to get telmex into our building. The guy downstairs and to the side of the building has a connection. He said he had to pay for some guys to run the wire farther for him and he may be willing to share his wireless internet with us if all else fails.

As for t.v. we are still trying to figure out the best way to go about it. Bottom line, we can't get cablemas and Sky sucks crapola. So we will see about getting Direct TV or Dish or something.

As for my moving adventures.....I'm kind of in both places at one time. My lovely neighbour from my downstairs old place decided to park his car right in front of the gate while he went on vacation for who knows how long. As a result, I cannot move anything big. I've been making trips back and forth and frankly I'm pissed off at myself for having so much stuff. I honestly thought I didn't have a lot of crap but I guess I do. I don't like the feeling of owning lots of stuff. It makes me feel like I'm "stuck". I don't like to feel that way. Ever since I've moved here I've felt like I'm sort of floating in existence and that this may never be my permanent place of residence so I TRY not to be a pack-rat but it appears I sort of am one.

I threw out 3 pairs of I guess I'm getting somewhere.....

(Note to Mom: Do not post that pic of me and my collection of shoes. It will make my throwing out 3 pairs seem like I didn't get a lot done.)

I haven't posted a lot lately because as I've noted before there was a lot of stuff going on. Well now there's even more stuff and it has gotton a lot more complicated and stressful and frankly I figure why bore you or upset you or have you read depressing stuff.

But I thought, since a huge part of the stuff that's stressful relates to living in Mexico, I would post.

It looks like I'm moving. The sooner the better really. I will be moving in with my friend Beckla because we both encountered two bad situations at the same time and decided to consolidate our problems. Isn't that fun?

We found a new place and kind of jumped on it cuz we sort of had to. It's really new, like new before new like not all the fixtures and sinks are in place or the towel holders or the kitchen counter and such. It's a two bedroom two bath so it's perfect for sharing. Did I say it's new? I like new, I don't like living in 10 years of other people's grime. I haven't had to for quite a while and I like it that way. I love love love my current apartment but unfortunately due to stupid people, it looks like I have to move to have a little peace in my life.

Anyhow. The issues that we are dealing with right now have to do with the fact that we have told the owners that we want the place, but I don't have a contract. I have put money in to have them rip out that stupid ugly cement sink in the laundry room thats sticks out of nowhere and is totally in the way, and a little extra so that I could get the kitchen counter built the way I want. I had to purchase the extra material it was going to cost a whole $35.00!!! I just don't get why people don't think things out properly. It's a beautiful apartment, so why do things cheaply? (ok besides not having the money) Put it on your credit card though, do it right.

The other thing is we don't have a comprobante de domicillio (an electric or water bill) that is ALWAYS necessary to do ANYTHING in Mexico. I mean if you want to have sex you have to have one. So it's basically impossible to sign up to get Sky Satellite TV (cuz they don't have pinche CableMENOS in the new new new newer than new area) until we have that, and it's also impossible to get Telmex all connected. But I just found out that Telmex isn't out there either so life just gets better and better.

Did I mention I got a ticket on Saturday for talking on my cell phone while driving. Yep. I guess I'm ok with the ticket. What I'm not so ok with is having to go fricken waste my time to stand in line and pay for the damn thing.

In addition Diesel has had some issues with an abscessed anal gland and two teeth being pulled and the rest being cleaned. Due to the antibiotics and change in living arrangements he's not only pooping all screwy but he's turned into one of those nasty viscious chihuahua's you just love to hate. He's really not like that but due to the circumstances he's gotten super protective and anytime he sees anyone, all hell breaks loose.

Oy vey. Pray for me. I think I need it.

What Retired People Do All Day & My New Remote

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day Pat and I went into town and went into a shop. We were only in there for about 5 minutes.

When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and said, "Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?" He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a Nazi turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So Pat called him a shithead. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, we didn't care. We came into town by bus. We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age.

(My mom forwarded me that and even tho I don't like to read forwarded jokes and messages because I simply just don't like to read or simply just don't have the time, I read this one and laughed out loud so it must have been funny....or at least it was "my little world".)
