Captured this from lurking about...this said it all - spoke volumes to me...of course I do feel we are (must be) living parallel lives for this site was reminiscent of my own 'professional' life and I DO use that term loosely:

Check out if you will - lossa good stuff in dea...

Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with cold water.After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm! Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked.

Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they know that's the way it's always been done around here.And that, my friends, is how a company policy begins.

This was a running joke between my ex and I how she was Lucy and enjoyed pulling the football away from me everytime...hey, we're ex's for obvious reasons here but there was this cute and sick thing about it. Well, having taken the Peanuts' test...I fear it to be true...

You'll find the link now published on my page in place of what was once, "How did you die your last life time"...thought it would be nice to brighten it up a bit LOL! I think I was Ernie from the Sesame Street gang on their test...but anyway, have at it and enjoy.

My new fave site!!!

Love the commentary..some of it is simply spectacular.

One in particular really got me laughing aloud and so I thought I'd share the joy:

A Fug of Her Own
We all know Lori Petty is a few pitchers short of a full bullpen. But it doesn't make it any less creepy when she shows up looking like somebody just exhumed her and she's contemplating whether or not to snack on your flesh:

Fortunately for those attending this event, Zombie Petty had been too busy designing the sarcophagus in which she wants to be encased for all eternity -- or at least between feedings on the brains of the righteous -- to have any energy for a binge. So blessedly, nobody's mortal soul got caught in her teeth, and nobody's blood washed it down. Not this time.

Sooo close...!!

Well, the first contract has been signed, sealed, and delivered. My honey has made her first sale as a real estate agent and I am that much closer to leaving Big 'brother' Blue as I will be cared for by my love.

GEEZ...if you believe that I've a bridge to sell you.

Actually I've found it quite difficult this past weekend coming to terms with the notion my girlfriend will very well probably make more money than I next year. Now I've always been the 'bread winner' and I've always liked it that way and as much as I'd love an increase to the household income, as long as I'm the winner in the battle of bringing home the bacon, it's cool. WELL, that's all about to change and in many ways I am hopeful that it does, it will be a welcomed challenge to my own 'pigdom' that I've essentially developed. There's nothing wrong with not being the primary income maker and that will allow me more time to get things done around the house and garden etc.

DEEP BREATH...however, until I actually manage and conquer the challenge, I'll be eating quite a bit of crow and trying to keep my feet in my mouth so I don't say anything stupid, or at least nothing worse than has already been said. I must say, she's been a good sport about it and at least for the moment, is really enjoying teasing me about being the woman of the house barefoot and ironing her slacks and blouses...yea, right! Only that once babe!!!! LOL! So I made her breakfast the other morning, it was out of love, not not duty love not - it was of love.

Yea, the feminist in me has teeter-tottered on the verge of acting like a stereotypical offense to anyone, it is a huge generalization but you know what I mean that whole cave man image....? Yea, so not me however he has thawed a touch and is peeking through my subconscious so I don't know how things will pan out but at least I HAVE MY OWN BLOG, damnit!!!

what a wknd

Took the kids on their first camping trip this past weekend...
If you've never been to Bear Canyon Lake you ought to go. It's spectacular views of the Mogollan Rim and man made lakes. There's a country store for last minute forget me nots and it resides in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest which USUALLY doesn't enforce fire restrictions when most other forests are due to their elevation. It's also quite a bit cooler and offers much more private camping. There are dozens upon dozens of campsites in this area of Forest Lakes however you prefer to chill in the wild.

For those you prefer a more social and community scene you can camp in the clearings with many others near the forest provided bathrooms(outhouses). Some of the campsites (w/ a fee) have water. Others are just spaces to move your truck through trees to allow a more desolate feel to the weekend. With the exception of light peering through the trees in the evening, it feels like you're the only one out there. This last weekend provided no spleep as the pup pissed on my sleeping bag so I was forced to jam in with my girlfriend which wasn't so bad except a tremendous thunderstorm of mass proportions came through from 10:30 that night and lasting until just after 4 in the morning.

Cracks of thunder and lightening were beyond any I'd ever experienced and I am truly an experienced camper. This of course sent the little one (8) joining us in our 'room' of the three room tent so there I was huddled facing my girlfriend, Jordan behind her in his bag and the pup laying on my head scared to death. I just laughed my ass off at how it was a most dysfunctional trip. I must say, as a first time experience for them including my GF, they did awesome. It was a very threatening storm and I would have totally expected their nerves to be on higher alert than they were.

All in all my fire was still hot beneath the ashes come morning after and I had the breakfast chill gone in ten minutes as I started our pit back up again. Ahhh, nothing like watching the black wash out of your hair when you FINALLY get to shower after a camping trip. My nails are still recovering but the kids are STILL talking about it and of course...when are we going again!!!

Some light and catty reading...

Do you remember 21 Jump Street's Richard Greico?

I don't know if this is
Manorexia or A disease decide:

More where that came from of others:

I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks...

NAW, not really. But keeping in the spirit of the month that being in regards to Halloween, I thought I would share a sight that I find fascinating ( Again, I'm not a beliver and maybe that's some defense mechanism kickin' it there but that's just how it is...why then do I find it fascinating you might ask? Well, I'll tell's because some of what you are about to see is so freakin' fake it's just down right insulting and other parts give me the willies because I'm just a big ol' baby when it comes to scary stuff and this is my jolt instead of peeping through the slits of my finger tips at a scary movie. 'Cause wouldn't that be a waste of $7.50?!?!?! Really now...

Where I'd so much rather be...

AHHHHHHHH, this is a most scrumptious thought at the moment. Pushing 2 am in a club is one thing however sitting in front of a terminal 'working' all night is quite another. Fortunately, a friend has turned me onto working on my own blog to help pass the night, to amend a previous statement from a previous blog...I should be able to keep this 'somewhat' up to date at least on my work!

Working on learning some tricks to improve my page et al however it may be a while as I only get three days a week to pick some stuff up so I'll be heavily reading and 'borrowing' from others to get this shtuff figured out.

Bare with me guys. Oh, and if anyone has any good sites to check out or tips of the blogdom by all means let me know, I'm not adverse to criticism so long it's constructive...speaking of which...anyone interested in some light reading and even writing (exercises or fantasy) check out this site : - NO, I haven't posted on there yet but am waiting for something to strike a nerve for me so that I go on a page after page rampage to fix what Hollywood jacked up. Hey, at least they've finally gotten the clue about reality (yea right) tv and it's a waning prospect - FINALLY!!!! Scripted program was sorely missed.

I love my job...I love my job! Really I do!

I am sooooo loooking forward to my new career...better yet, my girlfriend's new career - I keep teasing her that I'll retire once she starts raking in the dough. Then I can just piddle on land appraisals for the fun of it and leave 'BIG BROTHER' forever, whaa haaa haaaa!
That's all I have to say...

So...some background

Because the "Profile" is so vague and very fill in the box, I'll add a synopsis on 'me'. Not so much from an interest perspective but if you do happen to view the blog I find it's somewhat important to know who you are 'getting to know' and what that person's about. So, I am happily cohabitating with someone in a monogomous relationship for the moment. It is classified as an alternative lifestyle however an alternative to what?!? I shudder to think...

We have four children and four dogs, two fish and a bird. We are both in transition to bigger and better careers both for our sanity and lifestyle - with 4 kids in school from 8 - 14 years of age, flexibiliy isn't an option but a way of life...still trying to swallow that one, hang on.

As I am a virgo I am somewhat orderly so having 4 children enter my life has been a set of adjustments. I no longer have my own bathroom, my refrigerator is full of EMPTY stuff, my car is a closet and notebook...(car!)that's going to change! I mean it! And I can never find the tv remote control or a pair of scissors.

Not all bad though...I hardly ever have poo duty, take out the trash, or clear the table after dinner : ) - seriously there have been many blessings with whatever may be the shortcomings and it's all been very good. I've learned we definitely do become our parents which I know is heard time and time again but so amazing when you realize it for yourself. I have become not only my father but also my mother, stepmother, grandfather, sister, and aunts and uncles... MAN! you pull everything up from the recesses of your brain for this shtuff!!!

But I have someone(s) to play catch with and go fly a kite, take bike rides, show places I've seen many times and have a legitimate reason to do Disney and the fair so it's been a very introspective and exhilerating time. Well, that's it for my true first entry so now if I'm only updating once, maybe twice a week, you'll know I'm stuck under a pile of laundry in my family room and it may take a while...have a nice day.

It's OCTOBER...why am I sweating?!?!?!
