Friday Confessional

Friday Confessional is hosted by Glamazon.  Please click on her linky to join the fun and see what wither have confessed.

I confess:

I dislike Halloween.  Mostly I'm just irritated by stupid people.  We have a "trunk-or-treat" here in my neck of the woods.  Everyone piles into their cars and heads over to the church parking lot where you open your trunk to the trick-or-treaters and pass out candy.

I don't pass out candy

Not saying I don't eat candy, but it just seems too freaking much for one night.

I give out pencils, stickers, spider rings, glow sticks ect.....

Which either makes me really cool or super lame.

I confess it irks the hell out of me when kids don't even bother to say "trick-or-treat".  They just stand there without he bag wide open and expect you to just drop something in.

What's worse is not receiving a "thank you".  This is probably one of my highest pet peeves about this nasty tradition.  If I go to the trouble to give something to you, a complete STRANGER, you sure as hell better be grateful.  Really, I don't expect your undying gratitude, but I do expect a  "thank you".

I confess I don't ever turn my porch light on on Halloween and receive Trick-or-Treaters at my home

Mostly this is due to the fact that I am ALWAYS alone (with the kids) on all Hallows Eve and in my hood I don't want to answer the door after dark.

I hide down stairs in the basement with all the light off and watch movies with my kids.

And still people ring the damn bell!

Fill it In

Hello to my dear readers. All nine of you ;) I have been away on vacation, hence the lack of any new material here on my blog. I am still "decompressing" as it were, but this thought has been on my mind all day. I would ask that you "fill in the blank" with your answer in a comment.

You know you're too busy when____________________.

Here are some of my answers:

You know you're too busy when
1. you forget you volunteered at your kid's school that morning and your phone buzzes to remind you of your appointment
(Thank goodness I actually made it out of my jammies that day!)
2. it's 3:00 pm and you realize you haven't been to the bathroom since you woke up (and obviously were too busy to keep hydrated either)
3. you have to ask someone what day it is.

Okay people, make it as long or short as you want. I hope to hear from you soon!

Warmest Regards,

Simple Plan

So a couple of weeks ago my friend Cluttered Brain had a run-in with a "lady" that lives by her.  It was quite a nasty encounter.  This brought back memories of two "friends" of mine who basically chided me and screwed me over for standing up for my convictions.  Oh I had a rough time of it.  It hurt me to the very core. So bad that I was even having health problems.  I have since overcome these two individuals. Thank Heavens.  This song by Simple Plan helped me through it.  In the end I'm glad I held firm in my beliefs, it proved to be a great learning experience for me.  Maybe my two former "friends" will encounter some of the Karma they dished out to me....
So I dedicate this song to all those people in my life who think they know better....educated idiots, shrews, those calling evil good and good evil, the cliques, those who judge from appearances and not from the heart.  This goes out to you ALL.
