skittishkitten's JournalHow are you today ? (21.3.2006, 14:37 UTC)
I finally got the tax stuff all together, books brought up to date and taken in. Now I get to sit and anxiously wait to see if the government thinks I have shared enough money with them. This is always a stressful time of the year for me. It wasn’t that long ago that the CPA messed up my taxes and left me owing a huge chunk of money on top of the fact that I was in the process of purchasing this house and had to have another huge chunk of money for a down payment. Tax time sucks. I’m also in the process of filling out financial forms for banks and other lenders as the land auction is less than two weeks off. I hate filling these damn things out too as they are pretty much jibberish to me. Really aren’t they suppose to have people that will do this for you ?? One lender, a farm loan place, I have to contact by phone and ask several questions then send this off overnight to her. The others are a couple of banks which I’ll just take the cart load of stuff in , have them help me out and let THEM copy all the crap they think I should have to copy for them. Last years tax return file is an inch thick, I’m not in the mood to stand here and copy every last bit of paper for them……… I’ll let them do it. We finally got rain….and with the rain more cold temps. I’m not complaining about the cold this time as we really needed the moisture. It drizzled for four days then on the fourth day came in and rained hard before turning into huge flakes of snow. A little further east of me they had an outbreak of tornadic activity. Oh Yea……. Not. The state has lifted the burn ban in all 77 counties. Before this came in there was a huge fire in the Panhandle of Texas. I heard reports that it was 50 miles wide at one point and that the whole county of Wheeler had been evacuated. That’s a county , not a town , which means several towns were evacuated. Last I heard there had been 11 fatalities from that fire. The fire was so big that my area could smell the smoke from it. People has described the aftermath as something from a nightmare. Mile after mile of burnt grassland , scorched bodies of livestock and wildlife. Homes destroyed. It’s hard enough just hearing about it. I wouldn’t want to see it. I guess the Ada mule and donkey sale is coming up the first part of April . I’ve been thinking of going to see what they have in the way of Mammoth Donkeys. Jennets in particular, depending on how they sell and how much they go for. I was looking at some websites yesterday and noticed that the Mammoth Jack ( Jackstock ) are now on an endangered species list , It’s the list that deals with equines and domesticated animals and not the wildlife one. I checked to see and they were there, however looking for it now I can’t find it. Just alot of articles referring to it . Made some family members and their significant others a “bit” unhappy with me. They found out that I can’t just pull money out of my ass whenever they might think they want some. It’s now tough love. Do it yourself baby. I was rather stunned when some of those significant others family approached me about what “we” were going to do about a certain debt that one of the family owed. You could have heard my jaw dropped through the floor when they asked. I could NOT believe they had the balls to approach me. It wasn’t my debt , why should I pay it. And no I wasn’t going to cosign or fill out financial statements to help this person get loans. I’m still stunned , the sheer audacity of it . Oh Well , life goes on. I’m eagerly waiting for it to warm up a bit. My fingers and toes feel definitely chilled. That’s with the heaters on so BRRRRRRRR . I’m happy about the rain. I need to get the horsey , mule and donkey children into training. I need to get a website put up for them. I need to get the lady doing the logo’s for my tuck off her ass. I need to get these damn finanical forms filled out and turned in. That’s not counting the dishes, the house , the laundry , the meals ……….. damn …….. I think I need a wife ! ;)

skittishkitten's Journal2 New Mares (6.3.2006, 13:56 UTC)
My area finally got some rain Saturday night. It amounted to about a whole 1/10th of an inch. However since we have managed to get aprox 2/10ths of a inch in moisture for the last six months I’m really not going to gripe much. It was a bit different to smell the damp earth and see wet dirt ( that wasn’t just the top layer of dust being wet. ) The weather people are predicting another possibility of rain Thursday. If that happens things might even start to grow around here. The temps have been warm , even reaching the 80’s (F) some days. This week is suppose to hit the 70’s and 80’s all week. Last Thursday I seen an ad for used stock panels. They were the prefab pipe kind , although lighter than the ones I currently have. The woman was selling them for next to nothing. So I made the hour and a half trip to her home with stock trailer in tow and picked them up. Unfortunately I couldn’t get them all in the trailer but still got the “group” deal of them and she gave me one for free. The four that was left wasn’t in very good condition anyhow. They had been bent and mangled to the point that I wasn’t really sure I wanted them. But since they didn’t fit I didn’t have to worry about it. I brought them home and spent the next two days revamping the round pen and riding area. The round pen is now smaller and more manageable. I’m just waiting for it to rain to attempt to pull the one cedar out with the tractor……that way no stumps are left to hurt yourself on! The riding area is extended off the roundpen which can also be opened into the round pen to make it even better. I figure if I have one goofy enough to run through the lighter panels they weren’t ready to be rode out of the round pen to begin with. I had started the riding area up in Buddy’s pasture, before I got Buddy, but have decided it’s more convient to have it closer to the house. Now to get the saddle/ equipment shed , foaling shed built and all will be great ! Went to the horse sale the following Sunday. I brought home two new girls. The first is a Buckskin AQHA ( American Quarter Horse Association ) registered mare. She’s 16 years old, very well built , friendly, quiet mare. She was sold as “in foal” but according to her breeding certificate she would be due the end of this month and she is obviously not in foal. No big deal as now she can be bred to Buddy this spring. She has GREAT bloodlines Poco, Peppy, Leo and Three Bars. I’ve been calling her Sandy. The second mare (filly) I picked up was an unregistered Appaloosa filly. She is a Bay varnish roan with hip blanket. She’s already showing alot of roaning so the hip blanket will be gone before she’s very old. Unfortunately she came down with a snotty nose two days after I got her home. So I put her on antibiotics which she has just finished. Poor baby, the shots made her neck sore and she doesn’t like bending her head down to eat. So a bowl was tied to a fence at chest level for her grain and the hay is piled high enough she doesn’t have to bend far to reach it. Now that the shots are over hopefully her soreness will disappear quickly. I haven’t thought of a name for her yet. It will come to me eventually , sometimes it takes time to get the right name. I would post pics of them and see if anyone had any ideas. However I haven’t been able to sign into the photo ablum and I’ve noticed all my previous photos are missing. Soooooooo……. I’ve been trying to reach Sandy’s breeder / previous owner of the last 16 years to find out some history on her but so far no luck. I don’t know if she is broke to ride or not. Her and the Appy were both brought to the sale by a horse trader that didn’t know much of her background either. The Appy is still a baby , so it’s obvious she’s not broke to ride. She is halter broke which is good , but obviously hasn’t been messed with much. She appears to be very intellegent and should gentle down quickly. I still haven’t got the taxes done. I’ve been putting it off. I dread it. I know I should just get it done and get it over with but I HATE doing it. It’s such a pain. I figure probably Wensday I will make myself sit down and get it done. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow and plan on talking to bankers today. Bleck ……both are “fun” . There is some acreages coming up for auction that I wouldn’t mind having. First I have to see if I can get the loan for them and at what percent , then I’d have to attend the auction and see if I can get them at a decent price. My luck either the bankers will laugh at me and say no deal ( which there’s no reason they should but ……… ya never know with them ) . Or the land will sell for alot more than what I am willing to give for it. I was lucky when I got this house and land. For what I paid I basically bought the land and had the house gave to me . I’m hoping another 5 years and I’ll have it paid for. I’m gonna try anyhow. I’ve sold a few of my plastic horses on ebay. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with my “pay pal” money. I never have it transfered into my accounts. I usually end up using it to buy something else. I’m thinking of a camcorder that burns directly to DVD or possibly a laptop. However I’m a bit leary buying a laptop off of ebay. I’ve had good luck with the cameras I’ve gotten off of there though. Well anyhow , I’m off to talk to the bankers………..

skittishkitten's JournalYou Want me , Ya know ya do ! (1.3.2006, 00:34 UTC)
The Secure You scored 76% Security, 41% Avoidance, and 11% Anxiousness! Hey baby, you so fine baby! You are that warm, nougaty center that everyone wants to be and be with. I bet you knew that before you went into this thing though, didn’t you? You’re the kind of person who finds making friends easy enough, people seem to respond to you fairly well, you don’t doubt (most days) that you’re an ok person, and probably, you’re most of the people taking this test. Good on. What’s that say about you? Generally, the Secures want you (and you should want them in return, you’d be badass together), the Anxious-Ambivalents want you (even if you don’t want them) and the Avoidants? Secretly, we’re kidding ourselves, we want you too. Everyone just digs your jelly, and if I have ot explain why to you, you’re not as Secure as you think you are. You’re fairly self-confident, you’re generally appealing on an emotional level and ok, I’ll say it, there is a possibility that a margin of you are as Secure as you appear to be because…shall we say that you don’t always have the deeper thought processes to recognize that you’re not Secure? But far and away, that’s not the truth. You’re smart enough to know what happy is, and even if you don’t feel that personally you’re a “stable” person or a person who has high self-esteem, that’s not what makes you a Secure. Being a Secure attachment style doesn’t have much to do with your opinion of you, unless your opinion is that your a psychopath and then…well maybe you should go back and try to do the questions honestly this time, hmm? Attachment style generally, is a function of your relationships. Do you have them? Yes? Do they make you want to vomit? No?Congratulations, welcome to Secure Attachment Style 101. What separates you from your crazy partners, is that as a GENERAL not always rule, you consider that other people don’t run from you and you don’t run from them. You don’t always attract people with so much ease that everyone here wants to stab you for it, but when you do? That works out in your favor. Your friends are your friends for a reason, because to them? You’re wicked cool and there’s not a lot about you that they would say is something that needs to be changed. I advise you to always avoid the Anxious-Ambivalent (and if they knew we were talking about them right now, they would be SO pissed) because while you can be into the cuddling thing, you know when enough is enough and they don’t. If you’re slightly showing some Avoidant characteristics, they aren’t a bad choice, not great for you either, because they want to be around less than you would like and you’re not 100% all the time rainbows, sunshine and twinkles up someone’s ass, you need things too and it’s not fair for you to get involved with someone who won’t be on the same page as you by giving you LESS than you think you deserve. Pick an attachment match. Secure styles are wanted by everyone, but they have the option of being particular and you, you should be particular in the direction of other Secure styles, they inherently get you and they get why you are the way that you are, they neither want too much nor too little and they’ll be there, so long as they remember to call you, and you them. It’s a match made in sickening, well-adjusted heaven. My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender: You scored higher than 99% on Security You scored higher than 44% on Avoidance You scored higher than 0% on Anxiousness Link: The Sullivan Attachment Style Test written by pretentiaahoy on OkCupid Free Online Dating, home of the 32-Type Dating Test

skittishkitten's JournalCatching Up (22.2.2006, 23:42 UTC)
Hello one and all ……….or none and any as the case may be. It’s been almost a month since my last confess…….. erm ……. I mean entry. Things are about normal of late for this part of the world , not alot going on. No rain, sleet, snow either which means we are now entering our ……. 6th (?) month without noticeable moisture. The temperatures outside are ever so lovely , nice warm days with loads of sun. Of course the fact that my area could desperately use the rain, ice , snow sorta puts a damper on the nice warm sunny days that doesn’t help the grasses and whatnot to grow. Hay is running short , it won’t be long before I’ll have to buy more if it doesn’t rain soon. My DVD trading is going well , seems like I send more out then I get in. Probably because many of those that are listed I have or I’m just to tight fisted to turn loose the points to get a newer movie when people ask alot of points for it. Trust me if I’m unsure if I want to buy the damn thing , then I’m not about to give alot of points to watch someones used DVD. I did get a Music DVD of AC/DC in Donington however after three songs I had to stop and relist it. Don’t get me wrong the instrumental is GRRRRRRREAT ! But that poor guy with his nuts in a knot was grating on my nerves. Made me want to put him out of my misery. Wonder if they have just instrumental versions. Unfortunately this seems to be the way with me on alot of groups. I’m very in tune with VOCALS if the fuckers can’t sing then I don’t want to listen to them scream. If I was causing the pain it would be different I’m sure …….. but as a musical source of entertainment …… I don’t think so ! I had a friend recommend Pantera to me. He was very into them. They were GREAT when they actually broke it down and USED their voices ( ya know sang )…….but with the screaming/screeching and whatever you want to call it I can’t listen to most their songs. He would go on and on about …..” yeah but are you listening to them play ? ” How can you listen to them play with all that screeching they were doing. No wonder people drink and do drugs when they listen to them. ( Yeah I know , I’m gonna catch hell for that little outburst won’t I ) I’ve also been playing games alot lately it seems. I’m not much into the shoot ‘em up games , but I do love the “adventure” games or whatever you call them. The one I’m playing now is called “Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean” . It’s not hard. You run around looking for things and fighting the bad guys ……. OOOOOOhhhhhhhhh , AAAAAAAAhhhhhh. Oh well it keeps me entertained……. probably more than it should. The critters are doing well. Maggie , Jessie and Buddy all had to have manner lessons. Buddy’s ( donkey ) was a minor infraction , he was trying to “herd” me as I wasn’t going the way he thought I should have ……and I had his food. So he used his head to gentley push me in the direction he wanted me to go. Of course letting a stud of any kind take control of any situation is a big No No. So I corrected him and proceeded to hunt down his food bowl which he had clevery hidden in a ditch. After returning it to it’s proper place he was then fed. Maggie was more of a don’t touch me situation. She would lay her ears back and run off. She wouldn’t let me touch her. So she had to walk/ trot / run in circles while the others ate until she relented and came up to me. This was all of her own doing as I would merely position myself between her and the food and she had to approach me and be petted to be allowed to eat. If she wouldn’t allow the petting ( walking/trotting off ) I would merely mirror her , keeping myself between her and the food until she relented. It reinforces my dominance in the herd. “You must come to me and be nice if you wish to be fed.” Jessie was the worst. She turned her hindquaters to me and threatened to kick me when I went to pet her while feeding. She had to trot/ run while I drove her repeatedly off from the feedbowls ( yes things were thrown at her - scoops , bucket , bowls …. I refuse to be kicked at ) and was only allowed to approach when I chose to allow her. She had to eat that meal from my hand to reinforce my dominant place in the herd with her. Valentines day came and went. I got a dozen email roses from a special person, but other than that ….. Eh ………it was just another day. I did managed to get some really wicked grease burns on my right forearm. They almost ran the length of the entire forearm , with a “cool” splatter , streaking marks …… or so I was told. I had ice on it for over 3 hours to try to keep it from blistering, which actually worked. I still have the marks although the red has faded in intensity now it’s just a brownish discoloration of ugly skin on my arm. The skin underneath is a bright pink color though. I’ve watched season 2 of Nip/Tuck ………love that show. There is a really weird people on there, but isn’t there everywhere. I also watched “The Cave” which I was NOT impressed with. Probably because I thought it was dragons and it wasn’t. *sniffle* I’ve been watching “Surface” on TV which is a good show , it just got really interesting and now the show is on leave of absence for some god forsaken reason and I’m rather cranky about it. The Winter Olympics are underway. So far the USA has managed to garner 7 (Gold) 7 (Silver) 4 (Bronze) for a total of 18 . I’ve watched bits and pieces of it. So far the most interesting part was the Ski and shoot competition ……….whatever it’s called. :p Yeah I’m really up on the sports. I”ve also been watching “Dog - Bounty Hunter” since everything else is a rerun. ( Yeah I’m watching WAAAYYYYYYY to much TV lately ) . Dog is rather interesting. Ya know that long hair, bad boy biker guy ……. MMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmm . Of course I would never think to move in on Mrs. Dog’s territory ( no that’s NOT her real name …… it’s Beth , OK ) . But Leland ( Dog’s son) …… Little Dog ……. Puppy ……. YYUUUUMMMMMMM ………. Wouldn’t mind chaining HIM up for awhile !!! WOOF !! Still have to get the taxes in order and take them to the accountant. I HATE doing them. I really do. I hate keeping the books and taking the shit in. It’s all stress, every year. I hate it. I told myself I wouldn’t let family and friends get to me this year. So far it’s not going to well. I’ve been stressing , probably why I want to play that game so much ……..I don’t have to think about anything but the game ….. and the fact that it’s addictive. Yes I remember why it’s been years since I really played any game. *sigh* Oh Well ………. enough of that for awhile …… I’ll try not to let a month go by until the next entry.

skittishkitten's JournalIllegal to Tattoo (30.1.2006, 21:26 UTC)
Yup, That’s right , You heard me . Illegal to Tattoo . In the state of Oklahoma it is illegal to practice tattooing. And it is the only state in the US that tattooing is illegal. Never mind that the people of Oklahoma can go to any of the 6 bordering states ( or other 49 states for that matter) and get tattoo’s where it is legal. You can’t ….or are not suppose to get them in the state of Oklahoma. The penalty for being caught giving a tattoo is 90 days in jail and a $500 fine. I learned this little tidbit on one of my many trips into town last week. While I knew it was illegal to give tattoo’s in Oklahoma I wasn’t aware it was the only state in the US where it was illegal. Having grownup and lived in Oklahoma all my life I had just assumed there were other states that also prohibited the art of tattooing. Go figure. Anyhow, things are about normal here. No rain, all dry , fire danger is always a constinent worry. The critter children are all doing well. I learned that Jessie is not pregnant as she was “flirting” with Roany (mule gelding) over the fence. That only leaves Sassy and possibly Freckles to have foals this summer, provided that either of them are pregnant. Jessie will be rebred this spring , probably in May. If she fails to “settle” this summer then Jessie will be looking for a new home as broodmares that don’t concieve rather defeat the purpose of having them. Now it is a wait and see game to see if Freckles and Sassy are pregnant……… either that or it’s take them to the vet for a blood test. The dust in the air from all the dry weather is playing havoc with my sinuses. I’ve been having wicked bad headaches while trying to keep my appointments. It doesn’t really help with the concentration and then combine that with being in a highly aroused state of mind for several days ( more so than my normal state of mind that is) it really wasn’t safe for men to be around me. I hurt , I can’t think striaght and I was horny (er than usual) . I think I was a bit out of line with a couple of people ………not that they really cared , actually they probably wished I was a bit more out of line with them ………. and more often. Oh Well. I just remember that everything related back to sex. It didn’t matter what anyone was talking about ……..it was all sexual …….or I think it was. Nope I wasn’t exactly safe to be around anyone. I do remember the most fascinating pair of blue eyes , absolutely stunning ……. I also remember the manager interupting my droolfest and sending said owner of such eyes out to do his job. GRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ………so not fair. Oh Well ……….. I’m sure none of you have ever been like that. Such lovely wicked thoughts . Such lovely lovely wicked thoughts . To bad I’ve been taught to be such a good girl , because if I wasn’t , I’d probably be a very very bad girl………….. and make alot of money doing it too.

skittishkitten's JournalMovies (19.1.2006, 16:40 UTC)
My DVD swapping has been going rather well lately. I have managed to trade off almost 100 movies and recieved 70 games and movies . Actually I trade the movies off for points and then spend the points on games and movies I want. I currently have almost 150 points to spend for movies or games and just over 50 more movies listed to trade . So it’s just a matter of waiting and watching for something to spark my interest. My current DVD collection seems to be holding at the magic number of 964 . Sometimes it will go over and sometimes it will go under but it always ends back at that number. I find it fascinating how it manages to stay at this number. Of course the trade movies aren’t “removed” from my collection until they are in the mail, after all they are still here and I still have them. I’m actually suprised that the newer movies don’t seem to move as well. Probably because everyone runs out and buys them when they come out. I’m guilty of that also which is part of the reason my collection stays at that magic number. I have several movies ordered or preordered as I figure I won’t be seeing them in the trade club for awhile and I want to watch them ………..NOW. I don’t rent movies since I live 30 miles from town and if I rent it I would have to take it back the next day which is a pain. Even if I’m going to be in that general area I still have to remember to grab the damn thing on the way out the door. I also have pay per view but finding the time to search for it and wait for it to start is also a pain. It’s much easier to have the DVD and watch it at my convience. Plus if I like it then I can keep it and watch it again later at no extra charge. Oklahoma is still burning. I’m not sure of the latest damage reports but I thought I heard last that over 500,000 acres have burnt and I’m can’t recall how many homes and businesses. The fire danger is suppose to be extreme again today before dropping down to moderate the next few days. Only because they think there MIGHT be a chance that we get some moisture over the weekend. Right now our morning humidity is a meager 27% . We did get some snow last Monday. I woke up to about an inch of snow on the ground. I was surprised that we actually got that much. Of course the temps got above freezing later that day and it was gone before evening. The ground was barely damp looking. Then Wensday we got some rain. It was hard enough you could hear it on the roof and windows for like a whole 3 minutes or so ! Again it didn’t do much to dampen the ground , but I’m sure the little plants were more than happy to get the little bit of relief that they got. Hopefully the weather people are right about the chance of rain for this weekend. We need it ……… badly. The hay is running low and the winter pastures aren’t growing. The fires are eating up more and more. Everyone’s praying for a wet spring although it’s been said that it might be as late as May before the rains come. I sure hope not. My washing machine decided to quit last weekend. She went out in grand style with water all over the floor. I had it looked at and was told I’d be better off to get a new machine. SOOooooooooooooo I guess this weekend I’m out washing machine hunting. *sigh* Oh what fun. My PMS is playing games with me this month too. Instead of making me the firey eyed slay them at a glance, Goddess of War, which everyone fears and tip toes around. I’m now the weeping , sensitive pile of crap that burst into tears at the slightes hint of an insult or precieve injury. Needless to say I’ve been staying WELL away from people. Not to mention the headaches and cramps ……… Oh yeah those are alot of fun. It pisses me off to think there are actually people that believe that women make these things up for sympathy and/or use it for an excuse. Man I’d love to let them have a few of my bad days ! Oh well, I guess that’s about it for around here for now. Well with the exception of the new sheets on the bed ……. 300 thread count …….. want to talk about spoiled ……..OH YEAH !! That led to some interesting thoughts too …… they last longer, they feel better and they don’t tear up as easy during sex. PPPPuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!

You’ve done all of the positions in most of the books, you’ve found out about safe-words and understood what I was talking about with the whole safe-sane-consentual. You’ve probably discovered at least the BDSM sites online, maybe even local groups and have been learning all about your favorite fetish. You enact those fantasies which aren’t too taboo and play out in your head during sex the ones you aren’t sure how your partner will react. Remember, communication is everything, they can always say no or ask for a compromise. You never know, they might hold the same fantasy in their head, afraid of how you’ll react to it.

skittishkitten's JournalTinderbox (3.1.2006, 15:10 UTC)
Oklahoma is now in it’s fourth month without any noticeable amount of moisture. The western areas are drier than the rest as we’ve been without moisture longer than they. The conditions of “drought” are so bad that the evergreens are now more everbrowns. They are dry, brittle, and highly flameable. The area’s around Oklahoma City have been busy battling fires . Over 200 homes and businesses have been lost. The wind makes matters worse as it pushes the fire fast enough that the firefighters aren’t able to get ahead of it and get it put out. Pictures of helicopters with water buckets dumping water on the fires are a common thing on the television lately. The winds are suppose to be high again today. 20 - 40 mph with gust of winds up in the 50’s . The firecrews will probably have another busy day. People just can’t seem to use common sense and NOT throw lit cigarettes out the window or not burn ….. whatever it is they burn that starts the fires. I wonder if they even notice the WHOLE state is under a burn ban. According to the weatherman there isn’t any hope of moisture for at least the next week , but the winds are suppose to blow like crazy. It’s really odd weather, we could use the moisture in either snow or rain. It’s suppose to be so warm today that a person could lay out if they wanted to . However the wind is suppose to blow hard enough that it would make it a miserable thing to do. More can be read here .

skittishkitten's JournalHappy 2006 (2.1.2006, 23:46 UTC)
Happy 2006 everyone ! Hope the New Year is good to you. Personally I’m happy to see 2005 go. To many people and things ( aka animals ) that meant alot to me were lost that year. I am still reeling from my sister in laws death at the end of the year , but am gradually starting to accept it. The funeral was different. It was just a church service , no casket, no graveside services. Just a church service with her picture. She wasn’t one for making a big fuss over things. After the loss of her parents she had always quipped ” just dig a hole and throw me in” . Of course I always felt the same way. But being at her funeral without her “being there” was hard. It just didn’t feel right. It wasn’t like she was lost on the other side of the world or missing or whatever. She just decided not to attend …… her own funeral ! How strange is that ! But anyhow ……. thinking back over the last year I have noticed that I am letting to many things bother me. Most things I have/had very little control over. I let it take control of my life and over my actions. When looking back I noticed that especially the last few months I am not happy. The emotions and stress of things in my life have been wearing me down. So in 2006 I have decided it is time it is about ME. Things that make me happy and things that I enjoy. I will still try to simplify my life. I need to declutter my house and get rid of many things. Things I have held onto thinking they will make me happy, but they don’t , so it is time for them to go. I DID get my CC’s paid off in 2005 which I’m very proud of. But the issue of toning up went way out the window. Lets just say that stress and food are not my friends. They took control of my life and it’s time I take it back. Now lets just see if I can. Unfortunately food is worse than addictive , it’s a neccessity…….. so you can’t quit it cold turkey. You HAVE to eat , otherwise things won’t go to well for you. *sigh* The people in my life at the moment suck. I’d really like to disappear to a tropical island ( well stocked with the creature comforts of course ) and become an eccentric hermit Of course there would have to be water to play in , the ocean would be nice ( without the sharks and other deadly creatures thank you) and possibly a fresh water pool that wasn’t overly deep or at least had shallow areas for one to lounge around in. I’m just so tired of it all. It probably wouldn’t be so bad if I could get out to lay in the sun a bit. I notice that always helps my moods, especially when I’m feeling depressed and fed up, and I’m definitely feeling depressed and fed up at the moment. Great way to start the year isn’t it ? So many thoughts running through my head at the moment and I’m not sure what all I should put down and what should be kept back. So much lately is kept back , tucked away and hid from sight. So many things , so many secrets.

skittishkitten's JournalGive them a hug (27.12.2005, 20:28 UTC)
I am sitting here in absoulte shock. I learned this morning that my sister in law has passed away during the night. She was one of the sweetest , funniest people I knew. I seen her just two days ago and she seemed happy and in good health so needless to say the news has taken me completely by surprise. She was more like a sister to me. Actually closer to me than my own sister. I can’t believe that she is gone. They said it was her heart. It just quit. She wasn’t that much older than me, she should have lived for many many more years. She should have grown old and watch grandbabies grow up. I thought they had gotten the name wrong when I was told. I wanted to correct them. She couldn’t be gone. Not her , not yet . But she is and I feel lost. I still can’t believe it, don’t want to believe it. I keep waiting for someone to tell me it was a huge mistake, that it was someone else. But as much as I wish they would, I know they aren’t going to. I have to get my head and heart around the fact that she is gone. Life is so short, it’s taken away at a moments notice. We never know who will be here from one day to the next. For anyone reading this , do me a favor , next time you see people you care about give them a hug , A really big hug , “just because”. You might not get a chance to do so later , you can never know when they could be taken from you. A hug is free , but it can mean so much. So give them a hug , you never know you might even get a few back.

skittishkitten's JournalMerry Christmas Eve Eve (23.12.2005, 14:36 UTC)
Two days until Christmas and all is quiet. I got my tree up, my cards sent, presents bought and some of those wrapped. Other than that not much is going on. My Christmas Eve “thing” has completely fallen apart. It would seem the only one attending would be ………. Me. So no big sense in going all out to make myself some big feast that will take me forever to eat. I’ve decided to treat myself to a movie today. I’m not sure which to go see - Narnia which is 2 hours 20 mins long or try to tough it out for the new King Kong which is just over 3 Hours long. I see Aeon Flux will soon be at the theaters too , so will have to make an attempt to go see it. The weather over Christmas is suppose to be stunningly nice. Up in the 60’s so the weather man says. I was out feeding the critters wearing only a tank top and jeans yesterday. I had to laugh because not long ago these temps would have had me begging for a snow suit to wear. We’ve not had any moisture to speak of still. It’s drizzled some but it doesn’t even register in the rain gage , isn’t THAT scary. It’s now been three months since we’ve had any type of moisture to speak of. So you know what this means for the pasture. Not good. We don’t have the winter grass that helps keep the animals in good shape. We have to feed more hay and grain than usual just to keep them up in weight. I fear what this may mean for the mares if they are carrying. I hope it doesn’t mean that they will abort their foals because of the extreme weather. I have heard that a mare will not save her unborn foal at the expense of her own body. But then again I’ve seen on the animal police shows starving mares that have given everything for their unborn foals, to the extent of their own lives dieing to get them born. They say it can affect their conception rate at the best. Since this is the first foal crop I’ve had I don’t know much about this. One would hope if you keep chucking the food to them and keep them up in weight that they will do well and carry to term if they are in foal. I would REALLY like to have some little mule foal babies running around ! Anyhooooooowwwwwwww……… MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE !! Hope you have a fun fill day and that Santa is extra nice to you !

skittishkitten's JournalFear Me ?? (19.12.2005, 12:41 UTC)
You are The Devil Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition. Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it. What Tarot Card are You?

You know you’re from Oklahoma if: 1. You can properly pronounce Eufaula, Okemah, and Chickasha. 2. You think that people who complain about the wind in their states are sissies. 3. A tornado-warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel. 4. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway. 5. You’ve ever had to switch from “heat’ to “A/C’ in the same day. 6. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade. 7. Stores don’t have bags. They have sacks. 8. You see people wear bib overalls at funerals. 9. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent. 10. You measure distance in minutes. 11. You refer to the capital of Oklahoma as “The City”. 12. It doesn’t bother you to use an airport named for a man who died in an airplane crash. 13. Little smokies are something you serve only for special occasions. 14. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean. 15. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit. 16. You know cowpies are not made of beef. 17. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan his or her wedding date. 18. You have known someone who has had one belt buckle bigger than your fist. 19. A bad traffic jam involves two cars staring each other down at a four-way stop, each determined to be the most polite and let the other go first. 20. You know in which state Miam-uh is and in which state Miam-ee is. 21. You aren’t surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and bait all in the same store. 22. Your “place at the lake” has wheels under it. 23. A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol. A Ford F350 4×4 is. 24. You know everything goes better with Ranch. 25.

skittishkitten's JournalHo Ho Ho Hum (14.12.2005, 20:55 UTC)
Less than two weeks until Christmas and all is about normal. Well with the exception of having the tree up in advance. My Christmas shopping is going about normal too …….. I wander the stores wondering what to get people and only can seem to find things for me. It doesn’t help that I’m pretty much miffed at everyone at the moment and no one in my family has any holiday spirit to begin with. I could call my mother to ask her opinion but she would just say that she “wants it to be over” . It’s not like she does anything to begin with, so I don’t know why she “stresses” so much about it. But I’m sure she has her reasons , whatever they may be. I did manage to find a few things for Christmas……..among the things I found for me. I got home with my bags of goodies only to discover that part of the goodies ……mostly those for ME were not in with the rest. Needless to say I called the store VERY upset and talked to them about it. Then had to drive the 30 miles back in to pick up the bags that the cashier had forgotten to give me. Of course that made for a 60 mile round trip AND an hour driving time which didn’t make me happy. On the way into town again I managed to get behind a van that was going less than the speed limit but was content to follow along behind as I knew that the highway would soon split into a divided four lane. We had just reached the divided part when I looked into the rearview mirror to see a white car hurtling towards me and only braking at the last moment as he almost hit my new truck. I was not a happy person to begin with since I really didn’t want to go back to town. As I now had a lane clear I left him and the slow van gagging in the dust as I floored the truck and let it and my temper run. I decided while in town to do a bit more shopping, no sense in wasting a trip. I did manage to pick up a couple of things, including more for me. Yes I know I’m bad , go ahead, spank me. Anyhow I found a stainless steel pasta pot. I have seen them on TV and have always thought they were so cool ! Basically it’s a “strainer/sieve” type pot in a pot. Once you cook the pasta , you simply lift the “strainer” pot out of the pot that holds the water and Walla , strained pasta ! No need to fuss with carrying the boiling water and pasta with scalding hot pot over to the sink and strain it. It also came with a vegetable steamer which I had also been wanting …….and of course the glass lids that I love. Did I mention I have this wicked obsession for stainless steel cookware also. Like I said , spank me, I’m spoilt, I can’t help it ………well maybe but I don’t wanna , so there, spank me anyhow ! I also learned the last couple of days a very close friend of mine has been in the hospital ………again. Of course I’m very upset about it , but I’m trying to keep my cool about it. He said 3 heart failures in 3 weeks and now complications of diabetes. I want to scream and throw fits, rant and rave but I know that will do no good. He really , really needs to take better care of himself. I’m going to be very upset if anything should happen to him. The temps have warmed up a bit although they are suppose to get below freezing again this weekend. We’ve had no snow , no rain to speak of. The grass is so dry that if you lay an electric fence gate down on it it will catch the grass on fire. Of course grass like that has no protein either. So the mules, mares and donkey are all scarfing down the hay like it was made of candy. The rat terrier “Bullet” is once again staying in the house because of the cold weather. She is however confined to her crate as she was bad about pottying in the house last year. Patch has also been regulated to her crate again at night as she has had a couple “accidents” in the house this past week. I don’t like to wake up to clean up after a dog. BLEH ! This was before Bullet moved back in so I know it wasn’t a insecurity thing. I still need to get the cards addressed and sent. I know, I’m cutting it close again with the holiday mail and everything. But at least I’ll be SENDING them …….. there were a few years there that I didn’t. So that’s a big improvement for me. Who knows , I have the tree up and if I get the cards sent out that will be a good year for me. See, I’m getting better ……..slowly.

skittishkitten's JournalVoo Doo You I Will ! (13.12.2005, 22:46 UTC)
I recieved some upsetting/scary news yesterday. Seems one of my friends has been in the hospital again due to serious complications from his health. It has never been good since he was critically injured serving a position as a volunteer firefighter. It has been an ongoing battle ever since. It seems every time I don’t hear from him for a length of time then something has gone wrong. It makes me paranoid. This time his computers were down and with the holidays I just figured that he has been busy. Thing is I know he’s not taking care of himself like he should and that worries me even more. Hopefully now maybe he will think twice about it and take better care of himself. I don’t think he would like to find a small infurated blonde woman banging down his door just to kick his ass for not taking better care of himself. Of course that would involve traveling up North to where it’s even colder than here and that wouldn’t make me happy either, you know how I hate the cold , so he’d have to get an ass kickin’ for that too. Don’t laugh , it could happen, I don’t care if he is bigger than me , as they say Hell has not fury ……………. So I’m tellin’ ya now , Boyo , Buddy , Sweetie Pie …….if you go to checkin’ out of this world before I say it’s OK , I’m gonna dig you up and kill you all over again …….. maybe several times. Understand? Then I’ll voodoo your soul into a jar and hope it’s some big glowy thing so I can use it for a night light. That’ll teach ya, yes it will. So I guess maybe you better stick around awhile hadn’t ya? *Sulks* God *shudders* I think I need a drink and make it a strong one.

skittishkitten's JournalBAH HUMBUG (12.12.2005, 15:09 UTC)
Christmas is starting off about normal. I invited the family a month in advance to spend Christmas Eve (Day/Lunch) at my house. Told them I would prepare a feast for them , that way the family can get together for Christmas. I chose Christmas Eve as I have been invited somewhere Christmas Day and have decided to go. I will actually have someone cooking for ME that day instead of me cooking for others. Which will be nice. Also the fact that my sisters husband is on call Christmas Day and they will not be able to leave home to travel ( I have jokingly teased her that we will be at HER house this year) , but I’m hoping Christmas Eve his employers will give him that day to enjoy with family. Soooooo…………. the day after Thanksgiving I invited my Dad and Mom and Grandmother and they all say they would come. I told them Christmas Eve Day for a lunch get together thingy for the family. 5 days later my Grandmother calls and ask what I want for Christmas. Since I know she is short of funds I tell her for just us to all get together Christmas Eve for Lunch and spend time together, that’s what I want for Christmas. Then she ask me where she will sleep, which I told her it was for lunch and there wasn’t any sleepovers planned as I wasn’t going to be home Christmas Day. Well…….. That just threw a kink in the whole friggin’ thing. She then starts whining how she will have to spend Christmas alone since everybody will be gone and her boys won’t come see her ( Long family story there, suffice it to say she drove them off , it was ugly and she was to blame ) . Later I’m talking to my sister and I’m telling her what happened, glossing it over, but she knows how Grandmother is and the crap she pulls. So my sister calls my mother and talks to her. I’m not sure what was said but then my mother calls Grandmother and talks to her, then calls me and tells me that they weren’t going to make two trips over Christmas and that She and Dad wasn’t going to be up Christmas Eve , that they were going to go to Grandmothers Christmas Day. During this time I had wrote my brother and invited him up also ……. I’ve not heard back from him, have no idea what he has planned. I now have no idea who’s going to be here if anyone. *Grumbles* It could just be me…….. or I could be having a whole shit load of people that I don’t know is coming. I’m frustrated and I’m upset. This happens every year and I’m getting so F’n tired of it ! I have to wonder why I even try. It’s like banging your head against a brick wall. You’d think after awhile the pain would make you stop , but I guess some of us are just to stubborn or just to stupid and we keep banging our heads until our brains splat out. If my Grandmother shows up Christmas Eve after everything that has happened I’m going to be LIVID ! It was the one thing I asked from her and my parents for Christmas and she had to go fuck it up. I’m really not a happy person at the moment. So now that I’m in a cheerful mood I guess I will go pay bills. That always just cheers me right up. NOT! From now until after March is always the “fun” time of the year with all the insurances, taxes ( property , personal and ect) , car tags and what not. At least I have the CC mostly paid off ( yes I charged a couple of things to it - mail order that I now have to pay). With the money from the sale of the van I’ll have most the siding paid for. Which will be a big relief as once I have them paid off I can then put even more money with the house payment and try to get the house paid off. I’ve made my list and I have 13 people to buy for. So even at $20 a person that still $260 ,I’m in a snitty mood, the gifts might not be that nice. I’m thinking gift cards for everyone. *getting bitchy* Haven’t decided which ones , Wal Mart or McDonalds. Probably McDonalds since I know it will be a real slap in the face for everyone. Line them up and get them all at once …… slap, slap , slap. *Sigh* Not really. I just can’t be that mean. It’s sure nice to think about it though. *grumbles more* Oh Yeah ………. Tree is up and decorated, Go me. 2 weeks before Christmas , probably some sort of record. Anyhow Christmas - Bah Humbug !! I think I hate Christmas since Christmas sure seems to hate me. *sniffle*

skittishkitten's JournalBRRRRRRRRRRR !! (9.12.2005, 13:30 UTC)
According to the weatherman our frigid temperatures are finally suppose to get better. The last 3 days my area has been dealing with temps down to -19.5 C and with highs of -8 C . BRRRRRRRRRRR !!! That’s actually temps and not with the wind chills tacked on. Mercifully enough the wind was fairly calm and didn’t make it as brutal as it could have. This is the coldest it’s been here in several years …..the weather people say about 15 . They did say today however that we are finally suppose to get over freezing and warm up for a few days. But then the ominous note of it is that it could come back in in another week and hit us again! I’ll pass Thank You , I really don’t want any more of this frigid weather. I don’t like cold the way it is …….. I’m definitely not enjoying this ! It probably wouldn’t have been so bad if only we’d have gotten some snow. You know that white stuff. However we didn’t get any snow to speak of, just a light dusting that didn’t stick and vanished as if by magic. I don’t know where it went, it wasn’t warm enough to melt it. I hate these bitter cold spells that doesn’t produce snows. Not that I want alot of it, just some. Now watch me get snowed in. *sigh* Anyhow , all this stuff is headed for the New England area. So if your planning on being there I hope you bring plenty of warm clothes. Dress in layers and try to stay inside as much as possible. I still don’t have the Christmas decorations up. I’m really just not in the mood. It doesn’t seem like Christmas to me. The thought of going out and buying presents for people makes me grind my teeth. I don’t want to. I never know what to get them and after all that hard work of searching for just the right thing you can never tell if they really like it or not. Usually it’s just set aside after a brief glance which really doesn’t make me think that they cared for it at all. I’d give them money but I always hated getting money at Christmas , I WANT PRESENTS ! I liked unwrapping them and seeing what was inside. I didn’t care if it cost alot or alittle. It’s the thought that went behind the gift. Of course you could always tell whenever the gift didn’t have much thought behind it and then there were some that completely takes you by surprise. Personally , I’d rather stay home , curled up in bed and just sleep through it. I know I’ve been saying that alot lately , but I really would. Patch has been a bad girl again. It would seem that her bed on the floor is not good enough for her anymore. She has now decided that she needs to sleep on the furniture. Sleeping on the furniture is a BIG NO NO ! Since she basically white with brindle spots she leaves white hairs all over everything. This in turns gets on any dark clothes that I wear and I wear ALOT of them…. ALL the time, right down to the bra and panties, Black Lace, doesn’t look good with dog hair Thank You. So needless to say when she is caught trespassing on the furniture she finds out what a mean bitch I am as I pounce on her, spanking her butt and snapping and snarling at her with BAD DOG, OFF, BAD PATCH, NO NO NO !Until she runs for cover………usually the front door begging to be let out. I did notice this morning that she wasn’t on the furniture so maybe I won. So anyhow , it’s what …….. two weeks until Christmas. Guess I need to make a list , TRY to get the decorations up. Get myself motivated and get shit done. I’ve also been told I need to go chat with the taxman before the end of the year see how the business stands on the taxes and if anything else needs to be bought, done , whatever. I hate doing that, as after I do it , everyone looks at me like I’ve grown two heads ( on top thank you, minds out of the gutter please) and I don’t know what I’m talking about. Ya know , I really don’t want to do this, any of it. Can’t I just please curl up in my bed and sleep through it all. Please ! PLEASE !! Oh well , guess I’ll survive, managed to do a fair job of it so far. * Huge dramatic sigh*

skittishkitten's JournalArtic Cold Fronts (5.12.2005, 23:39 UTC)
I finally manged to get the mini van sold. It was the last day to sit on the lot in town and I was due to bring it home. Luckily that very day a woman called wanting to see it as she was thinking of buying it for her mother for Christmas. We met at the lot and after looking it over and taking it for a test drive she decided that she did indeed want it. It’s a relief to have it sold. I can now remove it from my insurance which will also be a great relief as it was due for renewal. I really need to talk to the insurance agent and see if they can cycle the insurance to come due at a different date rather than two weeks before Christmas ! I made up fliers for Buddy (stud service). Will start hanging them around various places I go, try to drum up some business for the handsome fella. Of course he won’t be courting any girls until closer to spring but it never hurts to get people to thinking about it now. I thought the fliers turned out half way decent especially since I have NO idea what the hell I’m doing. I guess if anyone has any complaints then they can redesign and print them for me. The weather man is saying an “Artic Cold Front” is to move into my area. Basically they call it that since the temperatures at night and day really don’t change that much. So we’ll be toughing it out at the “balmy” - 8C temps with 30 mph winds which will make it ……… Ummmmm……….. about -18 C ?? You know 0 (F) , in other words FUCKING COLD !!! BBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !!!!! The weatherman was also talking about snow. I brought some kindling in , will probably light the fireplace and have a toasty little fire going . I’m sure Patch won’t be going out much. Which will probably be a good thing as she is working on getting herself into trouble. Since I hid the hose from her , she has now drug up two of the mules feed bowls. They are a very tough fiberglass/rubbery type material that is very resistant to damage , but I prefer that she not put them to the Patch test. If she doesn’t stop I’m considering buying her a pretty little muzzle for Christmas and letting her wear it outside. I’m sure that will make her very happy. I had a friend read my cards since the appearance of the sharks. Basically it told me to stay low and take cover , bad shit was going to be flying about me. Oh Yea. Needless to say I’ve been taking it to heart. I’ve never seen sharks before, never knew they could be a spirit guide……..well I guess eskimos use them don’t they ? But anyhow, it freaked me out, big time. So here’s me taking cover. Taking cover under a blanket , by a big roaring fire because it’s gonna be cold and I’m gonna freeze my ever lovin’ ass off.

skittishkitten's JournalRunning of the Bul…….ummmmm……Mules (1.12.2005, 15:56 UTC)
Patch it would seem is an extreme sportist. She has been perfecting a new art and seems to be doing well at it ……. so far. I’m sure everyone has heard about the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Daring young men and women ( Ok maybe some are not so young ) brave the deadly horn tips and hooves of the Spanish fighting bulls and run the streets in front of them. It’s not unheard of for these participants to become injured and occassionally killed in their pursuits. Patch has her own version of this sport , it’s the running of the mules. Of course Patch has to wait for a weather change for the mules to feel the urge to begin their wild catch as catch can run. They run , bite, kick, rear at, push, and race each other around the pasture , more than likely up by the house. This is when Patch enters into the melee and practices her dangerous sport. She begins by chasing the mules that are running around chasing each other. But once she catches the attention of a mule they then chase her until she ducks under a cedar or out of their pasture under a fence. Jacques and Sissy try to referree this sport , they’d just as soon the mules settle down and not go dashing madly about in the first place. But since Patch is out in the middle of it , it then becomes their job to distract and deter the mules that are bent on stomping her. Not that the mules really listen to them, it just gives them more dogs to chase which just makes the game even more interesting. Once the mule (s) has their attention turned from Patch she is once again hot on their heels. Of course having the white in her coat attracts the mules attention fairly fast and she is once again running for her life. It’s not uncommon to see her circle a cedar , the mule go thundering past and her complete the circle to be hot on it’s heels once again. What’s get her in the most trouble is when she doesn’t see another mule approaching from behind her. She becomes so intent on the one she is “playing” with that she is oblivious to all else. It is then Sissy and Jacques job to warn, distract or interfer in someway with the mule bearing down on her. I have been known to throw a bucket or two at a charging mule to save her from being trampled. With the cold fronts moving through lately Patch has been given the oppurtunity to practice this sport several times in the last couple weeks. It’s been getting down to a nippy -8.3 C at night lately and winter hasn’t really truly arrived in this part of the world yet. I’ll be soon turning on the heat lamp in the well house to keep the pressure switch from freezing up( thus no water) . I’m already dreading winter. The winds this fall have been vicious. The one front brought winds gusting up to 75 mph. This with a steady wind of around 40 mph. That lasted for a day and took several shingles off my roof. The next system brought wind gust up to 60 mph with sustained winds up to 40 mph and lasted for two days. Luckily all the shingles stay on the roof that time. However you combine that with a -8 C temp and the wind chills are brutual to say the least. This weather is rather unusual for my area as we usually don’t get winds like this until the spring. I’ve been trying to determine if the mares are pregnant or not. But it’s still to early in their pregnancy to say for sure. No , I’m not going to take them in to get an ultra sound or get them palpated. Even if I did, and they were, there are so many things that could happen between now and birth that I prefer to let mother nature surprise me. Besides isn’t that half the fun? I have been rubbing their furry little bellies telling them “Baby mules, Baby mules” . They don’t really care just as long as I’m also giving them treats or grain. For treats and grains I could rub their bellies all I want and they couldn’t care less what I mutter to them. They are just a bit spoilt…….. just a tiny bit , just about like everything else I have. I notice Patch has pulled my water hose into the front yard yesterday. We shall have to have a stern talk about that. Water hoses are NOT for chewing. BAD DOG. BAD BAD. Hopefully with a warning she will leave it be. I think it might be partial payback for me picking up all her “toys” that she had strung around the yard before Thanksgiving and throwing them away. Bad Person , BAD BAD. Anyhow life goes on, Christmas is just around the corner and I’ve only got a minor start the shopping. I’m sure the tree and decorations won’t go up until about a week before ……….usually it’s about 3 or 4 da ……… OK OK ……… maybe 2 or 3 days before . SHEEESH ! But maybe this year I’ll do better …………. well maybe…….. well one could hope! Ya know your really suppose to support me in this not make me feel worse !

skittishkitten's JournalSurviving Thanksgiving (28.11.2005, 12:58 UTC)
Another Thanksgiving has come and gone. I have once again survived the ordeal. This year was worse than last year. Basically because one young man insisted on acting about the age of a 5 year old. He is now a young adult and insist that others treat him like a young adult , but when it suits him he presist in acting worse than most small children. If I could have gotten away with it I would have asked him to leave , but that would have caused great strife with the family, which I was unwilling to do. So I bit my tongue and wished for it to be over soon. Luckily the rest went well and it would have been a good day if I had not had to deal with this persons ill manners. His manners actually were a great shock as I know his parents did not raise him to act in such a way. However having recently moved out of their house and in with the “girlfriend/fiance” his manners has deteriorated to nothing. She didn’t even deign to make an appearance, Which is a huge warning flag with the family. His parents have no control over him as he no longers lives in their house, naturally they were embarrassed that a child they raised to act in such a manner . I’m unsure if I want to do the preChristmas thing now. Not if he is going to attend and act as he did over Thanksgiving. I’m not sure it is worth it. Patch chose to spend most of the day outside. It was a nice warm day and I think she was a little uncomfortable with all the extra people in her house. Especially with me getting twitchy within the first 20 minutes of them being there. It was probably a good decision, I almost wished I could have stayed outside with her. She came back in after they left and got her scraps. The friday after Thanksgiving is called “black friday”. It’s when all the stores have their mega sales usually running from 5 am to 11 am on friday morning. I’ve never been one to get up early and haul myself to town to be the first to get into a store to do the shopping. I’m sure that I probably miss some good sales, but I’ve seen the nuts on TV and I’m just not willing to endure that. Crowds make me cranky. Some pushy person will probably end up on the wrong end of my temper and it wouldn’t be a pretty thing. As it was I strolled into Walmart to check out what they have for sale at aprox. 10:30 am , after parking my new pickup in the fartherest reaches of parking lot in efforts not to get any dings in it. I could have looked at a sales flyer but they release those on Thanksgiving and I had enough to worry about with people invading my house let alone driving 30 miles to get a stupid sales flyer so I’d know what was on sale. Of course I never thought to look online……. wasn’t aware until after that they had it listed there too. I did pick up one thing, a 5 megapixel camera with video abilities for less than $90. I would like to have had one of the hand held DVD players for $80 but apparently they went fast and I wasn’t there to fight for them. I heard they had trouble over the laptops they were selling for $500 apparently people forgot their manners while scrambling to snatch them up. Yes it’s a good thing I wasn’t there. As it was I survived another Thanksgiving. I hope a years time will teach the young man in question some new manners or remind him of his old ones. If not ……then I guess I might have to get ugly about his behaviour and upset the family. I don’t think I can or will tolerate it twice.

skittishkitten's JournalCount Down (22.11.2005, 00:33 UTC)
The count down has begun. I went today and spent a few hours wandering around the grocery store looking for goodies for Thanksgiving. I know it’s a traditional thing , so just fix the usual usuals , but PLEASE …….. I’m so sick of it. I don’t WANT to do Thanksgiving. If I thought I could get away with it I’d do some type of Mexican bash ( I’m in a Mexican mood today ……might be asian style by Thursday , you can never tell with me). However I’m sure they’d send me back to the kitchen to recook the meal in a more traditional feast. So a few hours and aproximately $350 later I have the fixin’s for a nicely laid out meal. Yes I got enough to feed a small army. Cook it once and eat for a week, that’s my motto. While I’m sticking to the traditional meal, I am also putting a few healthier twist on the meal, just to see how it goes you understand. And of course if they don’t like it , then HEY …….guess I don’t need to do it next year do I ?? While there I run into a woman I used to live by. She was saying how she had already bought all her Thanksgiving stuff the week before and was just in to get the Turkey. This left me wondering just what she was making as most of mine is done with fresh fruits and veggies. They wouldn’t have lasted that long. Perhaps I’m not doing it right after all. Fresh is bad and boxed is good ? For some reason that just doesn’t sound right. And here I thought I was pushing it a bit by shopping so early in the week, but I hate crowds with rude inconsiderate people doing thier best to run you over. I’ll get enough of that at Christmas. Anyhow it will be Patches first Thanksgiving with me. She’s such a sweet girl I won’t make her stay outside or go in her crate when company is here. They can either deal with the fact that the dog is out ( and hopefully behaving herself) or they can have Thanksgiving somewhere else next year. Yes , I chant that alot, It doesn’t help , I think they enjoy the fact that I’m doing it to much. 3 days and counting or is that 2 …….. it’s Thursday …….do you count Thursday? Do you count today? 3 sounds better ……. 2 is just plain scarey. Got the house to clean yet. Where is my fairy godmother when I need her !? Oh Well …… Patch is staring at me. I’m late with her meal once again. I think she’s about ready to fire me. She likes meals to be very punctual. She’s even tried to move feed time up on me so that I will feed her earlier , that way if I’m late I’m still closer to the original time. I guess I should go feed her before the heifer gets into the trash again.

skittishkitten's JournalMake It Bigger (20.11.2005, 14:14 UTC)
If I didn’t get spam mail , I don’t think I’d get much at all. However every day I log into my email I notice I have between 20 - 30 emails waiting for me. These are the most considerate people. They always worry that I don’t have the best of something. Either computer software , digital cameras or my favorite people …….those worried about my sex life. They are either willing to introduce me to sites where eager ladies are willing to please me or give me preformance enhancing pills. I’m sure the pills are all natural and safe as it wouldn’t do to offer someone something that might be considered a drug or do a person harm. It can make my penis harder , longer , bigger around and ALL the ladies would just LOVE it. However they have all managed to overlook one small thing. I’m female. IF I wanted a bigger , thicker, longer penis all I have to do is go to the toy store and pick out a different one. No matter how many pills I take it’s not going to make the one(s) I have grow longer , thicker, bigger, or stay harder . Matter of fact the one(s) I have never go soft, they are always ready for action. Sometimes a different set of batteries are required to get that little extra buzzzzzzzzz from them, but I never have to worry about them being soft or saying no. If I’m wanting to please the ladies with them then there is a simple little contraption that will enable me to do so. Again no pills are needed. Only practice would enhance any performance that might be preformed, I really don’t have to worry about going soft…….. wearing out maybe ……..but soft, no. And if the ladies would prefer a bigger , harder , thicker, longer one then it’s a simple matter of switching things out. As for the web sites ……… lets just say I’m a little leary about looking at something that has come through unsolicited. All are deleted without a second thought. Sorry, I’m sure their all lovely ladies and in many interesting poses and doing many interesting things ….. but it’s just to much like unsafe sex. Besides I prefer to hunt things like that down myself. Much more interesting. The people /things spamming the hell out of this journal with the party poker. I don’t play. I’m sure it’s a fun game , but STOP ! It’s not gonna happen. I’ve now have the journal set up that all first post must be approved. After your first approved post then you’ll be able to post freely after that. Well , unless you piss me off, then we’ll have to see. The sharks are still swimming , the tiger is still pacing , but the wolf has curled up and gone to sleep. She must consider her job done. I’ve been warned.

skittishkitten's JournalGuides (19.11.2005, 22:56 UTC)
It’s been awhile since I thought of my animal guides. Usually I have three hanging about - The raven , tiger and wolf. I’ve a special fondness for dolphins and cobras. Today while looking at a catalog I had gotten in the mail I came across a blanket with sharks on it. I was instantly drawn to it. My animal guides came sharply to mind with sharks being in the foremost, endless circling around me. It was almost as if i was standing in the water watching them circle. I didn’t feel fear , just awe at the great presence. Next I seen my tiger, she was agitated and pacing , low rumbles coming out of her throat. I don’t know what she was so pissed off about , but she was definitely not happy. I have to wonder if it was the sharks. Next was the wolf, she was howling, not singing with joy , but calling out a warning. Again I had to wonder if it was the sharks. The Raven had disappeared , I don’t remember a time when the raven has ever been gone. This probably disturbs me most of all. I decided to go look up what the sharks could mean. I got…… Shark- Ability to Move Constantly, Remorselessness, Never Being Caught Off Guard, Ability to Defend Oneself, Hunter, Survival, Adaptability Tiger- Power, Energy, Strength and Will-Power in the Face of Adversity, Acting in a Timely Manner, Action Without Analysis, Passion, Devotion, Sensuality Wolf- Instinct Linked with Intelligence, Social and Family Values, Outwitting Enemies, Steadfastness, Skill in Protection of Self and Family, Taking Advantage of Change, Intuition, Guardinaship, Ritual, Loyalty, Spirit, a Pathfinder, Psychic Energy, Inner Divinity, Teaching, Careful Study, Cunning, Escaping Hunters, Ability to Pass by Dangers Invisibly, An Astral Wolf Could Lead You to a Spiritual Teacher, Strong Protection, Spiritual Guidance in Dreams and Meditations, the Teacher, Success, Perseverance, Stability, Thought With the Sharks circling and the Tiger agitated, the Wolf giving warning I just have to wonder if there isn’t something bad coming my way. I don’t like this. I really don’t.

skittishkitten's JournalFast , Faster, Fastest (18.11.2005, 14:43 UTC)
I saw a tv ad for comcast the other day. There was an elderly couple dancing , the screen cut to an album cover that said “dial up” and the couple did a slow dance around the floor, the screen cut to an album cover that said “DSL” and the couple dance a little faster …… but not much. The screen cut to an album cover “comcast” and the couple was dancing around the floor like bees on speed. This whole thing had me thinking about my service. I’ve had dial up forever. Because of my distance from town I was unable to get anything else. About a year ago I finally got DSL , the service has been crappy at best. Apparently my distance from town has given them alot of trouble. I’m a regular caller with complaints …….. the complaint being … I can’t get online. The last couple of months had actually been going smoothly , I thought they finally had worked it all out, until about a week ago when thing went back to where it was before. So once again I’m calling and bitching about not being able to get online. I pay for the “premium” service , the more costly one that is suppose to give me greater speed. But speed doesn’t really matter if you can’t get online ! So since I’m giving top dollar for my internet connection, which I can’t use, I make sure I get my top dollar in complaining too. (Yes, I’m such a bitch , Don’t cha just love it ! ) So it has been the last three days. Yesterday I called twice. I guess they finally got tired of me bitching as they SAID they had someone out put new “stuff” in whatever and changing out the cards. They also told me part of my problem was because I was long distance DSL. Then one person, a man, told me that if I would look at the little box and see that the “little lights weren’t lit up” then I would KNOW that I couldn’t get online. This was said rather insultingly and I took some offense to his talking to me as if I was some sort of fuckwit. So I told him I check the little lights and it doesn’t make one fucking bit of difference if they are lit or not. I still can’t get online. When I call they end of doing something on THEIR end to get me back online so I know the problem isn’t with me or anything connected to my end of the line. He thinks they now have the problem solved. We shall see. I had thought about getting service through my tv service. It is from satellite so no lines needed. The thing that bothers me with this is that my tv signal gives out at the least little stray cloud that passes between it and the satellite. And if the dish gets snow on it …………forget it ! It’s bad enough when I have to take the broom out and sweep off the one for TV just so I can try to get reception for it. I can see myself on heavy overcast days , I’d be going nuts ! Hopefully they truly have the problem fixed. I thought about stopping in the see the neighbor up the road and see what he had. Rumor has it he’s some kind of computer genuis or what not. All I know is that he has a 6 foot chain link fence with 3 rows of barb wire at the top around his house. They say it’s to keep the coyotes out of his fancy goats. I guess that could be true , but you have to wonder. I seen him out walking a few times on my way to town. He’s apparently decided to loose some weight and has put himself on an excersice program. He is slimming down and well …… he’s tallish , long darkish hair , goatee , mmmmmmmmmmmm, …….. you know what they say about cats and curiousity. I’ve been just itching to run my hands under his clothes to see if he has toned his body up. MMMMMMMmmmmmm……. Oh ……..sorry about that ……… what was I writing about ? Oh yeah, internet service ……. ummm……….think I’m done there. Now back to that neighbor ……………….
