DRAMA

DRAMA -- this is why I don't associate with family except in the casual way!

Now lets see how hard it is to type this up with my long nails LOL!


I got a text from Kristi this morning telling me to call if I was up, since I was -- ring, ring! This is how 95% of all the drama in my family starts! (the phone, not Kristi..........although......LOL!)

She says "Your Mom told me not to say anything but I didn't want you mad at me later so I'm telling you anyway." (famous last words LOL!)

now pay attention cause if you don't then you'll get lost! I ALMOST did and I know the people!

Jenny & Dotty (cousins) told Arlene (their mom & my aunt) who then got mad too and told Grandma to tell my Mom to tell Kristi (my sil) to tell me that -- they wanted me to take their F'ing pictures off my facebook, didn't I know that was dangerous?

SERIOUSLY??!!??!!

  1. and foremost -- I have every legal right to post any pictures that I have copyright to anywhere I want. In fact I can do any little thing I want with them -- even sell them! And there ain't a FREAKING thing you can do about it.
  2. Did you honestly believe that as a graphic design artist I wouldn't know copyright law? Everyone in the family has no problem bringing their digital image issues for me to fix so it's not a secret by any means. Oh, I know, because none of you actually make sure your doing something the CORRECT way, I'm the same -- NOT! 
  3. The pictures in question are over 20 years old!
  4. The pictures are not of them in compromising attire or positions  - not that it would change my copyright ownership!
  5. The pictures are also not labeled with their full names, not that it matters.
  6. My brother and I are included in each picture -- duh the whole point in WHY I posted them.
  7. If the message had to be sent via the grape vine at least it could have been a polite one! Tone of voice and choice of words really does play a part of how people CHOOSE to deal with you.
And the most important thing to mention --- if you SEEN them on my facebook then that means you could have commented and said it your damn self! If your so damn ballsy to send a whiny demand through some one else then you should of stepped up! bring. it. on.

Also, I find it hilarious that people who are completely noobs are attempting to tell me about what is dangerous online!  I know that I'm no expert and could make a wrong choice with the things that I post online but I have been doing this for over 10 years I know for a FACT that I am far more intelligent than ANY of you on security and privacy issues online.

And I have something for everyone who likes to go talking to tell my Grandma since she wanted to make the comment to my Mom - "why is it I always have to hear about all the problems your kids are causing"   She obviously has me messed up in her mind with one of the other mess ups within that family. She has NEVER had anyone telling her something about me EVER. remember - I'm not a mess up!



Because everyone in that family obviously hasn't picked up on it - let me say it as plainly as I can -- the ONLY thing we share is blood. I don't care about or participate in your mafia style of family life. I. AM. DONE.

I have been for sometime. couldn't you tell? that's right you don't care HA!

NONE of you people wanted to help me when I needed it most although I have attempted to extend the same to you. NONE of you even bothered to CARE about my life or welfare EVER. So I refuse to care about you as well. (look up the word welfare to fully understand it, it doesn't just mean a check from the government!)

so.

Now that I have internalized the rest of what I wanted to say - with the words I want to use but can't because I don't want to offend others, I'll end this.

Especially since I now do not have two free hands because one of the great things I've learned from this great family is -- when the going gets rough pick up something, pick anything as long as it's unhealthy. So as I pick up yet another bag of chips to shove down hurt feelings and the feeling of rejection from what are supposed to be my loved ones -- think of this (if your from my family) -- what is it you pick up that heals these problems? a bottle? a baggie? a cheap date?

Whatever you do don't pick up the phone to call me cause you don't have my number & I won't answer! Plus it's just RUDE to eat while on the phone =)

new recipe - fish tacos

A typical meal from Long John Silver's. A plat...Image via Wikipedia

Now I'm not sure if many people know this or not but Darkside & I don't like eating fish. So we make ourselves eat it about 4 times a year for the sake of the kids. Usually just fish sticks or a beer battered fish fillet.

But last year Long John Silver's had that whole promo for a free Baja fish taco, that changed everything! Had they only gave us one we might of not fell in love but nope they gave us 2 each! We were in love. But that still didn't do too much to change things cause that just meant I had to go buy them -- not make them. Till last week.

So here's the recipe we tried Fish Tacos with Chipotle Sauce which I knew was going to be great - all of hers are great! Of course we did things different =) Here's the recipe & our changes:

1st - she fried her fish herself, we used frozen fish fillets -- this is because of funds available, next time I will try frying my own. We did cook the fillets with the Old Bay seasoning though to mirror what she used

1/2 cup sour cream ---- we used 1/2 cup of sour cream, mayo, & plain yogurt  (we're saucy LOL!)
1 Tbsp lime juice --- we used 3 Tbsp
several spoons of adobe sauce from the chipotle peppers - too much for us! plus it didn't have much sauce
cilantro -- NO!! I hate it!
slaw mix -- we already had some shredded cabbage so we used that
corn tortillas - we used flour tortillas
shredded cheddar cheese - yep! =)

been awhile

Yea I know. Just not been feeling like writing much here lately - probably all the facebook =)

Everyone keeps asking whatcha been up to? ab.so.lute.ly nothing! We've just been chugging along with life.

We're waiting for something to come up with a "new" house. We got one that's supposed to be getting fixed so we can move in. And another that is in the process of seeing if we can get a loan for - to buy it! Both houses are 3 bedrooms and got huge yards -- big enough for chickens and rabbits! (cause of the code thing here) And both are near a big section of land that the kids would be able to play in -- one is next to a park and the other has a huge empty lot that is grassy. The both even have chicken coops in place! Oh and they both have big wooden back decks.

The BIG difference is the locations of the two. One is in one of the worst areas in town and the other is in one of the nicest areas. Go figure. We currently live in an area that most people would NOT but this house that's in the worst areas is in a different area. It's the neighbors I think that make that area worse than where we are. There is no pride or organization in the yards in that area. It's really sad actually.

The bad part is the house in the nice area is almost TOO  nice of an area for us. The house itself stands out in this area -- but believe me we'll stand out more! But I try not to worry about it too much cause I think we'll stand out no matter where we go =)

SR's brother got him about 75 baby chicks about 3 weeks ago. Yes - 75!! So right now he has about 92 chickens which is WAY too many. But he plans on taking a bunch of them to the auction. He was going to yesterday but he got up too late. So now he'll have to wait till next month cause they only hold it the first A day-old chickSunday of every month. I will have to remind him about the auction house in Carrollton! Just remembered that they do animals and it's every week. Duh, Anne!

Not too much going on though. Just feels like we're in slow motion or something even though I know we're not.
