Thanks to greengardenfrog for showing me this. 
I think I'm going to add this to my profile.


IMO, this is the best anti-smoking commercial I have ever seen. I will think of this whenever I hear the song from now on. And, that my friends is effective advertising.
NYS is showing a version of this, so I searched on youtube. Apparently, the original is from Ireland.
Much more effective to me than the nasty commercials that show diseased lungs and poor people that are dying from cancer because of smoking.
My parents never smoked, and I consider myself lucky that I never started. I have no will power and can't imagine trying to quit something so addictive. I can't even quit chocolate.

 Ooh, something to post.
Snagged from mmouse15, who snagged it from zhelena.  Thanks.

01. Do you make your bed every day?
No.  Used to, but now I don't care.  

02. What's your favorite number?

03. What is your job?
Ass't manager is my official title, but I mostly do all the office stuff in between helping to take care of mom.  And, I work at H&R Block during the tax season, a job I enjoy much more.   

04. If you could, would you go back to school?
Um, probably not.  I don't have the time right now.  I am required to take tax classes each year to continue work preparing returns.   

05. Can you parallel park?
I don't think so - I can't recall the time I had to even try.  

06. Name a job you had which people would be shocked to know you had.
Can't think of any shocking job - I've always worked white collar stuff.  

07. Do you think aliens exist?
I would think so, the universe is too large.  I hope they never come here.    

08. Can you drive a stick shift?
Yes - I love to drive a manual.  Vroom, vroom, ride that clutch.  hahaha.  Knowing how the gears worked helped when I learned to ride a motorcycle.  

09. Guilty pleasure?
Internet pet sites, large cherry ICEEs, small chocolate dipped in cherry from DQ, swings.

10. Favorite childhood game?
Honey West and her sidekick (my baby bro).  The front porch was our secret lair and we had a long, convoluted way to leave, over the rail, around the fir tree, hop the well, one swing on the swing and jump off, up the slide ladder and slide down, across the front of the garage, and under the rail into the cow yard.  Then, we'd do stuff.  Hey, what do you expect from an 8yo?  
haha, good times.  

11. Do you talk to yourself?
Not out loud, although I always have a running commentary in my head.   

12. Do you like doing puzzles?
No, never have.   

13. Favorite music?
Oldies, big hair bands from the 80's, religious Christmas music.  

14. Coffee or Tea?
Ice tea.  I have never had coffee.  

15. First thing you remember you wanted to be when you grew up?
A dinosaurologist.  I made that word up as a kid because paleontologist was too hard to say.   

16. Favorite Season?
Summer = motorcycle season.  

17. Truck or Car?
I love my truck!  

18. Steak or Salad?
Steak, I've always been a meat and potato gal.  I'm not a rabbit so keep that salad to yourself.  

19. Cat or dog?
Hard to say, as we've always had both around all my life.  I think I'm a cat person, but dogs have that unconditional love thing and you don't have to clean out a dog box.  I've got 2 cats now, and would like to get another dog this summer.  

20. The most influential person from your childhood?
I don't know.  Maybe my other sister.   

21. Crafty or all thumbs?
Crafty to a certain degree.  I draw fairly well and can do artsy-fartsy stuff with good directions.  Not very good with mechanical things, although I could change oil and spark plugs.   

22. Biggest fear?
Spiders.  Cancer.  Losing my sight. 

23. Pessimist or Optimist?
Naive optimist.

24. Favorite Holiday?
Used to be Halloween, but that was when I had parties to attend.  Maybe Independence Day. 
I hate most holidays, they are usually depressing for me.  

25. Mountains or Ocean?
I really don't have any experience with either.  Maybe ocean because I like sand and could collect shells.  

26. People person?

27. White, Milk, or Dark Chocolate?

28. Do you like to cook?
No.  I only make stuff I like to eat, and that is sporadically.  It takes too much time so I eat a lot of frozen dinners, like Schwans, or stuff like buttered noodles.  Even when I was married I didn't cook, we each made our own meals.  I believe that makes me a failure as a woman.  Oh, well.  

29. Night owl or morning person?
Morning, I'm usually awake before the alarm.  

30. Flannel sheets in winter?
No, I just never got around to buying them, I prefer the weight of blankets. I have 6 layers on the bed, 2 quilts, 2 blankets, a sheet and a cat.

So, Happy New Year everybody.
I sincerely hope 2018 is better than 2017. I can't imagine it getting worse. Oh, I shouldn't have said that - I probably just cursed myself.
Nope, nope, I am going to start out positive. An Optimist Prime, if you will.

My silly little tradition of keeping track of the first song I hear when I wake up continues.

Hmm, yes, this applies very well. I MUST clean my pigsty, otherwise I can't get a dog. Plus...it is a pigsty and I hate coming home to see it.
I started off pretty well, I was vacuuming before midnight and I threw out old cat toys. Wow, I have a lot of cat hair around here.
Anyway, I need to take care of my business.

Today's horoscope from the paper also goes along with that theme, I think. Well, except for the romance part. Unless the stars are referring to the head butts I get from Ratchet.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick to your game plan and you will show stamina, strength and consistency. Good luck is in your corner with regard to work and domestic deals. Travel and romance will go hand in hand. A little romance will bring you high returns.

Have a good day, week, month, and year everybody.
Now, I'm back to work.

LJ 18th anniversary

It would have been in poor taste to post this in DW.

#mylivejournal #lj18 #happybirthday

Leaving LJ

Well, I guess it's time.
Everyone seems to be abandoning LJ (if they haven't already) like ticks from a dead deer.
This will be the last crosspost from DW to LJ that I do.
The account is a lifetime paid one, so I won't delete it, but I won't put anything else up.  May even delete some stuff.  When I get a chance.  If ever.
I already imported my pet site journal to DW.
Adieu LJ, you have nothing for me anymore.
It's been fun, but you have changed, and counseling has not helped our relationship.
Divorce is all that's left.

Wow, it's been some time since I posted.  Who has the time?
Haven't been on FB for at least three weeks.  I don't understand how people can follow so many social sites.
Life sucks.
I have been so busy.  Between tax season and my mother sucking the life out of me....
It's not unusual to come home at 8pm now.  Which makes it hard for me to do ANYTHING in the evening as I'm so pooped.   The house is still a sty.  The really sad part is - I really don't care.

Can't recall if I said anything before (and I'm too lazy to look) but I did something bad to my right shoulder on Dec 7th.  Was lifting a pail of water and swung it around and OWIE!   I couldn't even move my arm for days and had to take a left over pain pill.  It slowly got better, but it still isn't right.  I have to try physical therapy and if that doesn't help, the dr. will send me for an MRI.
Sucks getting old.  Don't do it, people.  Just don't do it.

Had to take Bluestreak to the vet the other day.  I thought he was constipated again.  Similar symptoms as before.  Turns out he just had stomach problems so the vet gave him a shot to calm his gut.  He was better the next day, acted like his old self.
When I was walking to the door with Blue in the carrier, Ratchet ran after, all alert and eyes really big.  It was like he was saying, 'Hey, where are you taking him?  He's an asshole, but he's my asshole!'  Made me laugh.  He was all lovey-dovey to Blue when we came home.

We celebrated Ma's 5th birthday in February.  Wow.  I can't imagine what the world's gonna be like when I get that old.  If I ever do, that is.
She is very out of it most of the time.  Sometimes she'll smile, or say 'yes' when asked a question.  But, the answers are always yes, so I don't know if she even knows what we are saying.
but, she is good when the priest comes to visit.  She smiles and says a few words and is a totally different person.  The brain is such a mystery.

That's pretty much the excitement of my life.  Geez, I am so boring.

Free DVD ripper download

Another free download from this great company, so I can get the licence.


WNY Weather is crazy

Two years ago we had a record-breaking February with temperatures below zero the whole month. It was awful, and I think I bitched about it in a post or two. 

Today we are going to have a record-breaking temp of close to 60 degrees.  Wow.  Warm enough to take a motorcycle ride.  If I had the time and knew where my stuff was.  [Which reminds me, my buddy Betty still has my fringed jacket.  Must get that back.]

Temps will go back to more normal ranges next week.  Bummer. 
But, Spring is coming!

Pred cuties

This post is mostly to show some Predator figures to S.
I have high hopes....
