Can we think about this for a minute

Carnival Cruise
I mean some company that is trying to sell a fun package to get you and your family out on vacation has these commercials. And they love this song.

Iggy Pop's Lust for life. {Come take a walk with me and let's think about this}


Here comes johnny yen again
With the liquor and drugs
And the flesh machine
Hes gonna do another strip tease.
Hey man, whered ya get that lotion?
Ive been hurting since Ive bought the gimmick
About something called love
Yeah, something called love.
Well, thats like hypnotizing chickens.

Well, Im just a modern guy
Of course, Ive had it in the ear before.
I have a lust for life
cause of a lust for life.

Im worth a million in prizes
With my torture film
Drive a gto
Wear a uniform
All on a government loan.
Im worth a million in prizes
Yeah, Im through with sleeping on the sidewalk
No more beating my brains
No more beating my brains
With liquor and drugs
With liquor and drugs.

Well, Im just a modern guy
Of course, Ive had it in my ear before
Well, Ive a lust for life (lust for life)
cause of a lust for life (lust for life, oooo)
I got a lust for life (oooo)
Got a lust for life (oooo)
Oh, a lust for life (oooo)
Oh, a lust for life (oooo)
A lust for life (oooo)
I got a lust for life (oooo)
Got a lust for life.

Well, Im just a modern guy
Of course, Ive had it in my ear before
Well, Ive a lust for life
cause Ive a lust for life.

Here comes johnny yen again
With the liquor and drugs
And the flesh machine
Hes gonna do another strip tease.
Hey man, whered ya get that lotion?
Your skin starts itching once you buy the gimmick
About something called love
Love, love, love
Well, thats like hypnotizing chickens.

Well, Im just a modern guy
Of course, Ive had it in the ear before
And Ive a lust for life (lust for life)
cause Ive a lust for life (lust for life)
Got a lust for life
Yeah, a lust for life
I got a lust for life
A lust for life
Got a lust for life
Yeah a lust for life
I got a lust for life
Lust for life
Lust for life
Lust for life
Lust for life
Lust for life

Yeah sure it's a crazy tune and it's kind of catchy phrase but the song is talking about falling for commercial gimmicks and hypnotizing chickens.
hmmm, yeah. I don't know about that. Not really feeling it now are ya, me neither.

My husband brought this up initially. He said do they know that this song really isn't talking about what they are trying to convey.

This is a little glimpse

I just thought I'd mess around with my photobucket remix tool. But in reality it's almost like a little summary of me. Pictures that I have taken, my artwork. Things that I have posted throughout the years and that have been lost from the modblog and efx2 days.

Luckily they are still in my photobucket and I can share them right here right now.

Enjoy the show, oh by the way there is music. So turn it up or mute whatever is you pleasure.

Lever-action WHAT?!?

I don't have much to blog about these days. Feeling kind of yucky on so many levels. A little sick, a little blue, a little meh. Nothing serious.

So I thought I'd post this because one day I hope that the knitting fairy will come down and bless me with these magical powers one day.

Okay is your head spinning yet. Go ahead replay I dare ya.

Here is more of the same but just a slight different variation. It's called "lever-action" knitting , this is more in the style of the yarn harlot's "irish cottage knitting". Wonderfully fast, it would be a great technique to learn especially since I don't have much time to knit.

Have a great week.

Swiftless but inventive.

I was supposed to blog this a while ago but, as usual life gets in the way. And before you know it's been nine months since this event, the baby now has 2 teeth, and likes to play quietly in his baby jail, I mean play pen. lol.

Any how. I decided to do a slide show because I'm lazy and I'd just rather do it that way.

The story goes like this. My mother brought these hanks of lace weight like string. It was something she bought for that punch needle embroidery. I had a ball winder so she wanted to take advantage and get these things into a manageable state. We started off with two chairs back to back and the hank stretched around them. So she would unwind it off the chair a little bit at a time and then wind it up. I thought that was just took to long. So my noggin started working. After the smoke cleared out of the room (heh-heh). I came up with a wire hanger and some duct tape. I took the card board roll off a wire hanger (the kind you get from the cleaners. You know what I'm talking about.) I hooked the big hook of the hanger over my curtain rod centered over the two chairs holding the string, and the little curls at the end were modified just a bit. One side was taped down to stabilize my contraption. The other side was threaded with the string. And Viola! There you have it. Momma went to town and had all her hanks wound up in no time.

Who says i have to pay the big bucks to buy a swift when all you have to do is use a little creativity.

If want a close up of any of these pics just click on them and that should take you to a bigger version. enjoy.

Let's change it up.

Is this not the sweetest photo ever. This is what I am most grateful for. Big Sis, Big brother showing some love. So bringing it all back into perspective. Those bozos can go jump in the lake, I got the coolest kids on the block. YO.

On a knitting note. I'm a little disappointed with my bead choice. Size wise it's okay. But I picked an opal lined glass E bead. (what size is that? I dunno) Very pretty BUT, big but. they don't always fit on the crochet hook I bought. So I used my bead remear. *ERRRR* wrong idea. That pulls the color out of my appropriately named opal "LINED" glass E bead. *eyeroll* Alright then, you know what I say.

Fogetaboutit! adapt and over come. Some may be opally some may be clear. I'm too cheap to go buy another crochet hook, and for now this family is on budget lock down.

The opallly is sooo subtle anyway. It's no biggy. It will be interesting, for sure.

P.S. I got another telemarketer call. but I was very nice and made the dude laugh. Hopefullly they are taking my name off their list. :D

Sick and tired and PISSED

PIssed is not the word to describe how I feel at the moment. I'm annoyed and I want someones ass in a sling. But who??? I don't know. Perhaps the (excuse me) ASShole that sold my (excuse me again) fucking number.

This number is brand new. I've been called at least 5-6 times a day by numbers that are blocked. Or numbers that have just the number and not a name.

Just now I got a number from (0) so I answer with a "WHAT" and I get the pleasure of listening to (pardon me again) a f***in' recording. We have business to discuss with you. (UHH no we don't) Please call us at 847-615-7383 if you are not this person call us at 847-615-7383. ( no fucking way...I'm not calling you to do your job for you. 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 847-615-7383 >>>>I hope some computer out there is scanning for phone numbers and then dials this number over and over again.

Next issue.

Is another number that has called us but NOTHING no voice no recording. NOT the first time. 800-861-5065 .... ready here we go 800-861-5065 800-861-5065 800-861-5065 800-861-5065 800-861-5065 800-861-5065 800-861-5065 800-861-5065 800-861-5065

Yet another harrassing tale.
I open my front door and on the front door there is a folded up envelope, from Conn's YEP Conn's. So I open it. It said I owed them money and if i didn't pay they were going to take reposession actions. (OH REALLY?!?) I haven't bought anything from them. This is isn't mine OH look. on the top LEFT hand corner is small print is some JAMES MORALES. well that explains, gosh I should be helpful and call 800-898-7105 them to tell them this person does not live in this house. I was told that I needed to put an address on it and send it back to them. (I'M suppose to do their job for them?!?! She couldn't take the name down and make note of it and pass it on to the proper personnel.) I said "no I'm not doing anything. you all need to get your facts straight."

For the record I'm usually not a smart ass like that. I mean I called them to let them know. duh.. the fact that she ordered me and told me "what you need to do is send it back." I'm not throwing a stamp on this. She said very condescendingly "MA'aM this is someone else's mail." I said in louder more condescending tone...."uh It wasn't in my mailbox. As I said earlier it was on my DOOR!!" "well 'den just thow it away." "Thanks I will do that."Click.

CAn you believe that not 3o minutes later, I get a phone call from some very southern accented lady. "uh yes is James there??" "You have the wrong number. *sigh*" "Um ha-ow ah-bowt EEned? " Extremely annoyed...."WHO IS THIS??" "Um thees is shurleee and we're trying to get a hole of James and your name came up. " "LOOK James doesn't live here and this is not his number." now acting stupid and innocent. "I'm soorrree may'am for getting the wrong number den!!!" as I responded she hung up so here we go folks. 210-924-4700 210-924-4700 210-924-4700 210-924-4700 210-924-4700 210-924-4700 210-924-4700

>>>> 210-924-4700

Folks I kid you not as I sit here 8:56pm I get yet another call from the local paper. They've called us every night since the day i got this number. 210-250-2000
The asshole on the other line got smart with me can you believe it.

Why am i so annoyed, because the calls are often, late, and just non stop. Everyday since we've gotten this phone. We've only been here for maybe 3 weeks.

I am so calling this service provider and telling them that I'm switching to ATT because. I mean it's so evident that they just turned around and sold our number or gave us a number that hasn't been out of service very long. (I'm sure there is no law against that but FUCK people) This has never happened to me before.

The conn's thing bothered me the most. First some asshole is sneaking up to my door and leaving notes. The note says they are going to reposes. Are they going to just show up one day and try to muscle their way into a house that doesn't belong to JAMES. WTF????

I'm not feeling very safe at them moment.

I'm not feeling safe and I'm very irritated.

a quick update

So much going on a little overwhelming, but it's nothing to pout about. The house is finally on the market. And when I saw it on the website, I cried folks. I cried like a little baby.

My house up their for all to see and critique and then perhaps buy and it make it theirs. So far we've had a few inquiries and one showing. From what I understand they both loved the house, the husband loved all the brush the tank, but the wife wasn't too excited about being so removed from town.
I have to admit it takes some adjusting but it's really not that bad. We're far out but not so far that it's completely unlivable. I think if we were retired and no children this would be perfect.
I think it's definitely everyone should experience at least once. It makes me appreciate the conveniences of living in town. I have no problem driving to the other side of town, when I get there I think to myslef, "Is that it? That was fast." Seriously I'm not trying to be funny. I know I've said it a MILLION times. I'm sorry if I keep repeating myself.

What else? OH most importantly. Our first week here I found this cool package at my door step

A prize from my friend Susan. I won it participating in her contest to make a LOLDOG picture.
Apparently I had the power to make her hubby smile. LOL. Who knew?!?!

I was very grateful to get such cool goodies. And the KOIGU.......oh the koigu.........OHHHHHH. IT's so pretty, I'm being very picky about the what to do with it. But I will know when I find that perfect pattern.

For now I enrolled myself in the the Secret of the stole KAL. I've knitted my swatch and when I get some pics I will post.

I hear the baby stirring, so better go I bet he's going to be hungry.

Take care everyone, I wish you all bright blessings and great rest of the week.
