Randomest Thought YET! I love Cardboard!

It’s been a while since I’ve blessed you guys with my thoughts so here goes…
So I’m sitting at work pondering life, love and the pursuit of happiness when it donned on me. There are more important things than worrying about perfecting the quality of my life, love and by far the pursuit of happiness. Rather I realized that indeed would it be so incredibly awesome to have a cardboard standup of myself. I looked over and in my coworkers office stands Wayne Gretzky, and over yonder stands Michael Jordan. As they gaze upon me I realize that yes, truly do I want to be on a piece of cardboard. I mean think about it, think about the possibilities. There are so many uses: when you don’t want to smile in a photo you can have your stand in, when you don’t really want to go on a date you can have your cardboard friend go in your place. I mean how much better could it get? Not only do you have a filler for yourself, but your are mobile and light weight, you can go anywhere, and you could have your friends made into them too, how awesome is that?! You and your friends could have a party without even actually being there physically. My vote: Cardboard city! Who’s in, or am I just a little crazy?!

Women and Tools!

Apparently for years there’s been this preconceived notion that women merely belong in the kitchen, I however believe differently! You see, we women may have the inherent ability to cook and clean, yet we also have this intrinsic talent to take on any task and get it done, EVEN if it involves many parts and tools we’ve never used before! So the other night my friend and I decided to put her desk together, this isn’t any ordinary desk, this is a huge L shaped desk with many parts and three glass tops, and I tell you what, we laid all those parts out and got down to business! So I dedicate this Blog to all the women out there who took on a so called “man’s task” and got the job done! Isn’t it a beauty?!

The Surreal Truths Are Back - Life Beyond Big 'D'

The Surreal Truths – Life beyond Big ‘D’

Say it aint so! Yes my fellow North Texas lads there is life beyond the borders of George Bush, 75, 114 and Elm Street in Downtown. I know, it’s hard to fathom the ability to have a quality time outside of our “comfort zones,” but come on isn’t our state motto “Friendship!” I decided within the past few weeks that I was going to start living a little, do stuff I normally wouldn’t, go above and beyond, not stress the small stuff. Maybe that was all advice from my psychiatrist or just the happy pills kicking in, but either way, its working so far. I tell you what! If you aint ever had yourself a good ole redneck time, the Arbuckle Mountains in Davis, Oklahoma is the place to be. Listen here, this is the way to do it, grab yourself a new catch, after realizing you haven’t been together all that long, and then agree to go to their family reunion up in the Mountains in another State. The adventure isn’t in the trip; it’s in the reality that you have actually stepped out of your mollifying state of sanity and leaped possibly into the most chaotic experience of your life. This was me; I was like “balls to the walls, its time to take that chance, risk it all.” Its true, I did, and you know what?! Here’s to all my friends who thought I was crazy! This little clandestine redneck heart of mine was given the time of her life! So cheers to family reunions, beer drinking, family meet’n, jeep riding, and shootn the shit, as well as, home cookin’, and late night bonfires while listen’n to some of countries best!

Sometimes you just have to let go of the constraints of our so called politically correct society and let loose, live a little. One day is worth two tomorrows, that one day may be the rest of your life, live it up and live it well, and by God “Git’er done!” -Wilma-

That's Road Rage!!!! Watch out big D, here I come!

I mean did Acura seriously forget to put a working blinker system in this SUV?! Could be a possibility, OR NOT SO MUCH! I mean I don't think car manufacturers worldwide have mistakenly left turn signals out of our vehicles. I can't begin to express my disgust! Driving to work this morning, a whole 4.2 miles, I counted eleven drivers who either pulled out in front of me, changed lanes, stopped RIGHT before their turn, all doing so without the use of a freaking turn signal! DAMN! I swear, its like Americans have this total lack of ability to flip ONE knob, yet have this inherent strength, no doubt to drive with a lead foot. I can't stand it, I mean I know we're all in a hurry to get to where we're going, but do you really have to see how close the front end of your car can get to the bumper of mine without actually hitting me? I was sitting, LITEREALLY sitting on 635 the other evening, you see, I was headed east bound,coming up on Hillcrest and then all of the sudden before I could get over, I had to slam on my breaks an pray no one rear ended me...long story short, I end up sitting in barely rolling traffic for almost 20 minutes, with only two exits before mine. YET this stupid mini van behind me, who could obviously see over the vehicle I was in seemed to think that riding my ass would cease the traffic issue. I just don't get it, all I know is that PEOPLE better start learning how to drive, its ridiculous!

Has Drivers Ed failed us all?!!!

Have you ever had one of those days where it seems like not one single driver on the road knows where they’re going or how to drive?! I swear to you, Saturday was one of those days! You see, I live literally 4.2 miles from work; my commute shouldn’t be long, or stressful! I decided to come in on Saturday to catch up on some hrs and work, I kid you not, I thought I was going to be involved in some fatal accident. Within two blocks some idiot literally pulls out in front of me, then this other car was swerving and couldn’t decide on a lane, then just went from the left lane all the way to the right, literally a few yards from the stoplight and slammed on his breaks and then turned almost getting hit by oncoming traffic. After finally making it to work unharmed I figured it was just a fluke and that I was on the road at a bad time… Oh no, as the days events toiled onward it got worse and worse! I have officially decided that Beltline is a death trap! People literally do not know how to drive; it’s simple, stay in your lane, use proper signaling, and by God, learn to just drive. Dallas drivers no lie deserves to be branded with the title of “worst drivers in America!” I hate to say it but its true!

What's Your Strain?

How can something as simple as “The Orange” create such a stir at the grocery store?! I’ll tell you what it is, and I can’t stand it, its anything from competitive markets to the latest “hip diet!” Scenario: It’s a Saturday morning and you’re making breakfast for yourself, family, loved ones, who cares. You realize you’re out of Orange Juice, you’re like, “I’ll run to the market real quick and grab a carton and be home soon.” Is it ever that easy? Of course not! Not only is the OJ in the back of the store along with the Milk (don’t even get me started on that) but now there’s the saga of “which OJ do I buy!” It’s orange juice for crying out loud! I mean, it’s bad enough that there are like a million different brands of OJ to choose from, now they go and complicate the whole decision making process by adding all sorts of stuff into the mix! We’ve got: No pulp, low pulp, High pulp, low carb, and low cal. And of course they have to go and make various “flavors of OJ,” I mean come on, a ‘simple, quick trip” to the store has now become this nuisance of never ending “what ifs!” Personally I prefer Pulp, but do I want low, or high? Which brand? Which flavor? You see, it’s all so complicated!

This is all the quality Govt's got... if you're interested just copy and paste into a new window...I can't seem to make it work the right way. http://www.ers.usda.gov/publications/aib747/aib74706.pdf

Cellular Malfunctions

It has become quite apparent that my cell phone royally sucks! I have known for a while that the phone wasn’t the greatest but now I know it officially ranks #1 amongst the worst cell phones I have ever owned! I personally would like to blame Siemens (my cell phone manufacturer), along with once “ATT” now “Cingular.” However, I find it difficult to blame either company seeing as me, the owner of this ‘quality phone’ lacks the ability to provide proper care. It’d be easy to say that the manufacturer of the phone sent me a broken phone, but that’s not the case. I got it over a year ago in a pretty enclosed package. So here goes the life of my phone…I tend to drop the poor thing at least twice a day, I don’t think Siemens will let me send the phone in for repair seeing as I think they can detect any damage, let alone water damage…Do you think the reason my phone has such issues is because it was dropped in a toilet last August??? Possibly? At any rate, I am having a hard time understanding why my friends get so upset when my phone randomly drops calls, doesn’t receive calls, texts, and doesn’t send texts even though it says “sent.” To top it off, my phone likes to randomly call people, ironically it’s when I’m typically having a rather interesting conversation, or even better when I’m belting out random songs while driving down the road. Either way, please, friends of mine, don’t hate me because my communication device sucks, if anything, I feel this is your opportunity to donate to the “Angie needs a better phone fund.” RIGHT?! LOL….in all actuality I do feel bad though, so this is my apology! Talk to you soon…...right??

“Eat Fresh” MY ASS!!

Okay so last night I decide hey, I’ll run by Subway after working out and tanning, no big deal right?! ONLY not so much! Seeing as this Subway is in a nice part of town around other well kept establishments, I’ve been there before (haven’t had the best of service) but that comes with any restaurants nowadays, I figured things would be fine…in and out, no worries. All I wanted was a foot long sandwich! A six inch for then and the other half for lunch today! Anyway, I walk in and there’s a short line and two people working. I kid you not, I seriously kid you not!!!! This crack head looking lady with dykish short nasty hair, a completely filthy hat, coughing and sneezing all over the damn place is waiting on people, and to top off her quality look…she has freaking HUGE hickies on her neck! Who in their right mind would go sucking on that freak?! Okay, I know that’s a little harsh but come on, have some tact for crying out loud! The other guy working there didn’t say much, he wasn’t too sanitary himself, but he wasn’t the root of my anger or disgust. See, this girl has been working at this Subway now for almost half a year and apparently she still has a job, not after I’m finished with Subway corporate and the Town of Addison. Its one thing to wake up late, look a little sloppy, may not look completely ready to be working for the day, but I draw the line when it comes to complete lack of care, you’re working with food for heavens sake!

The Surreal Truths Cont.

The Surreal Truths Cont…

So it’s been a while…you see, I tossed and turned over the fact that I let the whole world know that I’m a walking schizoid freak!!! I’m so kidding! Just to update you, sorry for my temporary absence, I know you all missed my inspiring thoughts and random bouts of wisdom. It’s not that I had a mere lack of enthusiasm to write, it’s that well how do I put this…I was undergoing extensive observation. Apparently when my site was read by some over analytical so called “psychiatrist,” I was “red flagged” as a threat to society. What the hell does that mean?! My bad, didn’t mean to share my stories about little green men coming after me, and my crazy thoughts about them being in love with me. I mean, it’s not like they were true, right?! I mean other than the fact you were all there with me…so anyway, when they realized I was just a “Lifetime” weekend special in the making I so began my debut as an Actress. After realizing I had no talent, I was fired, and so here I be…back in Dallas, working yet again! ALSO… good news, my tragic life with the horrible zit is practically over! FINALLY!!!!! Still peeing all the time, but other than that, life is back to normal…but wait… I don’t want to be normal!!!!! Oh well… The Surreal Truths, another Lifetime event coming to you soon!!!!!

Love the weather!!!

So...it's a beautiful Saturday in Texas and I must reinterate the fact that I am so ill right now! I decided to order Chinese food thinking that soup will help, but I have since been informed that it'll take them 40 minutes to deliver so I'm hoping after taking a dose and a half of Nyquill that I can stay awake til my food gets here! Back to my throat...it quite possibly couldn't hurt worse, I can't swallow (which leads me to wonder why the hell I just ordered food!) and I can hardly move my body, I ache all over! Anyway, enough about me, hope y'all aren't as ill as myself! If its Strep I wouldn't be suprised!

Can we say OUCH....that was hot!!!!!

Apparently in my 22 years I have yet to figure out that when things are hot, don’t touch! Meanwhile doing my hair this morning I got this bright idea to grab the freaking curling iron with my bare fingers…Yeah, that’s me, a freaking idiot! I’m sitting there and realize, ouch that’s hot oh wait, no…its really freaking hot! I burned my left index finger and thumb! Needless to say, I gave up on doing my hair for the day! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve burned myself with that same damn curling iron… my neck, my hands, even dropped it on my leg once! Is it time to retire the darn thing?? Anyone else out there suffer from the inability to use hair tools properly?

Self Diagnosis "The Surreal Truths"

So was sitting in psychology last night, my favorite class with the greatest professor ever; and that’s when I realized…Damn, this class could really screw with peoples heads. You see, as humans we have this inherent ability to constantly analyze every aspect of our existence. Not only do we analyze ourselves, we more often than not probe into the lives of others. So brings me to this realization, take everything you learn and apply the contents appropriately and by God listen to your professor! Especially if she specifically states, “This information is for you to learn, not so you can freak out, read into, and begin self diagnosis.” Do we ever do as we’re told? Apparently I’m in a class with a bunch of crazies, including myself. Don’t get me wrong, I do know that there are people out there who are really sick and need help, and then there are those, like my classmates who think they have every disorder or phobia under the sun. I figured they were all doing it, I was thinking it, why not figure out what’s “wrong” with me. Here’s a few I decided against: my having an Antisocial Personality Disorder, this is mainly due to lack of me being a “sociopath.” As well, I don’t feel that I have a Psychotic Disorder, I don’t typically have delusions or social withdraw, or hallucinations, except for that one time I thought little green men were crawling on me, you were there remember?? Then I considered well maybe because of that one time there were little green men everywhere, YOU remember… that maybe I could have a Delusional Disorder…Now which one?? Erotomanic – where I’m so crazy I think someone loves me that really isn’t, like Elvis for instance, he’s madly in love with me, he even comes to my house and sings to me at night. Or wait…Persecutory – Someone or something is always after me, they want to capture me (oh yes, this is it) It’s all because of the green men! Or lastly, do I suffer from Somatic – thoughts that my body is diseased or poisoned… OH yes, I’m all three! You see, we have these green men that are in love with me, but at the same time they’re so after me, and the reason why…is because they want to poison me. It’s all so clear now! Can’t you see?? Are you there?? I know you can hear me!.......... Self Diagnosis “The Surreal Truths” To Be Continued…

2nd Edition of: What The Hell Is That?!

Welcome to the 2nd Edition of: What The Hell Is That?! Now once every now an then I can tolerate but come on, I’m 22yrs old, eat healthy, wash my face multiple times daily, uses everything as directed and yet still I am plagued with a freaking zit. I swear…this is gettn a lil annoying! Not to mention every freaking over the counter remedy is completely and utterly useless! I give up, so please if you know me, don’t laugh at me because I haven’t been able to avoid what apparently I now call “post adolescent syndrome.” Anyway, if any of you clear faced luckies out there have any ‘unknown remedies’ please… do share!

One of those days...

Have you ever had one of those days where you don’t really know if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, or if it’s just something in the air? I tell you what, today is one of those days. I say this with reluctance because I don’t want you to get the wrong idea and assume I’m grouchy or having a horrible day, because that is not the case. It’s just like I was rushed all morning, barely had time to get dressed, my skirt was even on backward, anyway, thought that was funny! So if you know what I mean by one of those days, it’s like I’m here but not so much, ya know? Anyways, enough blah blah…Hope everyone is having a wonderful day, it is beautiful outside! I leave you with this…” "The most wasted day of all is that during which we have not laughed." So if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, things don’t seem to be going your way, or it’s just ONE of those days… picture this…I was in my senior year of high school, I was walking down the hall during passing period, accidentally dropped my English book, bent over to pick it up and waaaaamm, about 50 students got a nice view of my backside, yep, my pants split right open! What’d I do?!!! Sat down and just busted out laughing, what else was I to do, change my pants? Naaa, sometimes we all just need a breath of fresh air!

What the hell is that???

Okay so I thought I surpassed the years of puberty, years ago...APPARENTLY not!!! I've never understood the phenomena of the "zit" but frankly whoever created this little (or HELLO what can be gigantic) pest deserves a swift kick in the boooootie! Come on now! So it begins...I'm sitting here, minding my own business and next thing I know I feel this "bump" on my cheek. What the hell is that?! Oh wait...no no I already know, it's something doctors like to call a 'pimple'...I however see it as a "pore in distress," just screaming to be poked and squeezed till it's lovely "juices" are expelled to the outside world. I just don’t get it, these pimples are such a nuisance and so unpredictable, it’s like they POP up whenever they want to, “oh pardon me miss, don’t mind me, just hanging around for a while.” Oh well, what can we do? This eternal search for the “best” acne solution never ends, and so begins the never-ending battle to annihilate this lovely hindrance on the faces of every man, woman, an adolescent suffering from the “pubic years” in society… “Do I leave it alone?” What the hell kind of question is that? It’s not even a question; it’s more of a rhetorical question. Of course you’re not going to leave it alone, that’s the problem with this little entity, its existence is so enthralling. So what do we do? Poke, prod, pick, you name it, but who wins???? IT DOES! WHY WHY WHY?!!! Yet every time this conflict of “The ZIT vs. the intellectual beings that we are” is lost, we still try, try again. I don’t know, is it me, or should we fight back?! I got nothin’!

For those who care this might help: http://www.skinrxclinic.com/what_causes_acne.htm
But who needs medical advice??? POKE, PROD, PICK, it’s as easy as that!

Things that seem to always get in the way!

So I have found myself having this conversation with more than one person recently! There are two things in life I have realized are necessities but also take up time and seem to get in the way! First: Getting Gas, Secondly: Having to go pee. Yeah I know, TMI TMI Alert! Okay getting gas is the most annoying thing in the entire world! Your car needs it but it takes up too much time, and now, it literally drains your bank account! I swear, if Gas could just magically appear in the tank each week or so life would be grrreat! On the TMI note!!! It's just not fair... whoever created this whole Overactive bladder syndrome must be put to death! I say slow down Autonomic system of mine!!!! OK OK j/k but seriously, I drink about 25 glasses of water a day along with random cups of coffee here and there so basically my bladder is always on overload, what's a girl to do?! Yeah I'm sure that was a little much, but you get the point...

Which brings me to my next point... Amy (my co-worker) and I have decided that yes indeed we need our own restroom over here...the other one is across the way, we're not lazy persay... but come on now, I'm sure our co-workers get tired of seeing us constantly walk by every hour or to me what seems like every half hour! So yes, our own potty room would be cool! J/K!

Now that I have blabbed about the randomness of Gasoline and the need to pee I'm going to get back to work!
