Shia LaBeouf

I have the hottest crush on this guy. Here's the thing. I don't really think he's like overly attractive or anything right off, but I just watched Disturbia last night and I've seen the Transformers movie and I really have a hot hot crush in Shia LaBeouf.

That's all.

Guitar Hero for the Wii -the shiz!

My DD has been playing it non-stop all morning. They usually have a pretty short attention span. Don't mind the music, either.

Buh-bye Zoey (101)

Guess they already found a way to get rid of her...that was fast!

Oh how cute...matching ear infections!

Well, the doctor said that DS has one yesterday and today, I am about 99.9% positive that I do, too.

Not a happy camper. I've taken Tylenol AND Ibuprofen and it's not touching the pain.

Screwed up Xmas present from Ebay


My daughter LOVES the art of Amy Brown and I found a really cool book by Amy Brown on Ebay.

Auction ended and I paid immediately on 11/17.

I got this item about 3 days ago and waited until today to open it because DD is not home and I can wrap it.

I open it up and it's TWO of the VOLUME 1 books. These are VERY heavy books.

I am so irritated. I had ordered a fairy and a stand for DD from them, too, and it came separately about a week ago or so. I had emailed to find out if this was coming separately or what.

They explained that they don't actually HAVE any of these items, that they have to order them after they get your money. If I'd known that, I would have bought them on Amazon and gotten the in two days.

First, it's wrong to sell something you don't have, and second, now I am stuck with two of the same damned book. As you can see, they weren't cheap, either. I emailed them this:

Hi there. We've got another issue. I received the package and it
contains TWO of the volume 1, no volume 2. These were
Christmas gifts and at this point, I don't have exactly what I
ordered. I prefer not to have to pay to send one of the Volume 1s
back, so please let me know if you can send a self addressed,
posted label so that I can get it back to you.

As far as volume 2, I would like a refund for that (half of this
order, including shipping) and I will find it elsewhere.

OMG so I look at her feedback (DUH, should have done this first) and here's how it reads (I'm so screwed!):


It never occurs to me to check the feedback that people left for OTHER people before buying, but it appears that I should. I would ROFL, though, if that was the kind of negative feedback I got from them. Looks like they're on a roll this week.

Order was shipped on time and you're just a JERK! Seek professional help! Seller: fairyandfantasy ( 1155) Dec-20-07 23:47

Pregnancy simulator dolls--why?

I saw some girls with these dolls at the market one day and I couldn't believe they are still using those to try to drive the point home about how much work babies are.

I think that *anyone* could handle one of those for several days, especially knowing they are not real and it's not forever. Furthermore, those simulator dolls were not puking or laying on the floor crying and kicking or grabbing things off the shelves or trying to take the bottom can from the pyramid display.

When I was in high school, they gave us raw eggs to care for. I broke mine and made another that looked identical, no one knew the difference.

Google is good. Use it.

Someone on a local board posted looking for a lay midwife nearby. Because that is all on the downlow here, you can't just say yeah here's her name, here's her number, etc (illegal in NC).

So I PM this mama and I tell her that there's a doula nearby that knows a lot of the midwives and I show her the doula's website.

Her reply is "what's a doula"?




Whew, I am PISSY!

Drug bust at DD's school!

Yesterday, one of the 8th grade girls in my daughter's school announced in front of the girls locker room that she was high (my DD was present) and someone told on her and the principal found 2 bags of MJ in her book bag.

Even given our history with her (she hit my daughter in the face once-unprovoked), I am still a little bit surprised. I guess we know it's easy enough to get. But, she also has a high school (sophomore) boyfriend, so maybe she got it there. Freaks me out, though.

She's been expelled.

My child can spell!

My DD finished in the top 3 (they didn't do 1st/2nd/3rd place, just the remaining 3) in the middle school spelling bee tonight, which means she gets to go to the regional charter school spelling bee, and if she does well there...who knows?

Woo hoo! Yay Morgan! Made this day a little brighter for sure!

HUGE sale on Leapfrog products!

What do I want for Christmas?

DH asked me to make an Amazon list, but I don't want him spending much on me, we have totally got the kids set.

Y'know, I can't think of anything I want.

I actually want that humongo Gilmore Girls Box Set, but the price is steep!

My internet is down! Wahhha

I am at the library right now. My modem fried and I have to have a new one shipped. They did it overnight, so I PRAY it will be here tomorrow. I can't take this. Anyway I can't really "say" much tonight because I can hear the keys echoing in the library and makes me self-conscious, LMAO.

The library computer area seems like a lonely hearts club or something to me. LOL

Had to check some email that I was waiting on.

Oh yeah, you're a real class act!

So your dog brutally attacks mine in MY yard and you are now saying that because Animal Control has your dog in quarantine and it will likely be put to sleep or at the very least, you have to keep it in certain kind of confinement in your yard (boo fucking hoo) that you refuse to pay the vet bill because we have no proof? This after 4 days ago, you stood on my porch and told us how sorry you were and you worried that it could be a child someday.

Because YOUR WIFE told you that we can't sue you without photos of the attack (never mind that the police saw your dog wandering in your yard and mine, and animal control has my full statement given within hours of the attack), you're going to listen to her stupid ass? The dog is in your name. Have some common fucking sense.

At the very least, some class. I even asked you "are you sure you want to go there, you want to take this moral stance" and you said "well, if you don't have proof".

You're a loser. You live 2 doors down and would rather we let the entire neighborhood know that you and your remaining dogs are a danger and let everyone know what's going on than to do the right fucking thing. You'd rather be sued in court than do the right thing.

Loser. You will lose.
