Suicide, House, neighbors, dogs, PB&J, STD's and accents

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the color sky blue pink and the number 7 (as in the number of days until my birthday).

1. Have you ever not thought about the possibility of suicide? Nope. Can't say I have. I think anyone who says they haven't are liars. I never thought I could go through with it.... ever. But the thought did cross my mind a time or two.

2. How many dogs have you owned in your life? What kind? What were their names?
  1. Penny - a pomeranian that was around before I was. She died when I was around 10 I think
  2. Smokey - a dalmatian that I had for a few years until we moved.
  3. Andy - a rott/lab/something mutt that I had for a very short time... I was living with my sister and when he chewed up her quilt that was hanging on the line, he had to go.
  4. Maxwell - he was German Shepard/Lab mix but he could pass for a Golden Retriever. Go figure.
  5. Hank - a Blue Heeler that would have given his life for me if he had to. He was hit by a snowmobile and died in my lap.
  6. Spike - another Blue Heeler. He was just a puppy that ended up going with my ex-husband when he moved out. He died the same day. I always question if it was revenge.
  7. Tosha - a rottwieler that batted her eyes at Maxwell and they parented 13 puppies.
  8. Bruno - one of the Tosha/Max puppies that I just had to keep for myself.
  9. Duchess - a rottie that loved us more than life itself - only problem was she hated everyone else.
  10. Chico - another pomeranian, who is still living with me - at my feet as I type.
  11. Saki - the famous Golden that fills this blog with her gorgoues Golden face.
Glad I didn't ask about cats! Whew!

3. In one word, what do most people describe you as? Goofy

4. Do you watch HouseMD? Why not? Every night... got the hubby hooked.

5. What irritates you most about your neighbors? My next door neighbors are great, but 2 houses down? They seem to have a calling-the-cops fetish. Luckily not on us, but I wish they would quit calling on our next door neighbor.

6. Have you ever called someone in for some sort of abuse or neglect on humans, animals or property? My sister & her friend (and her friends mom) made me call to report that the mom's ex was burning leaves in his backyard. It was total revenge on their part and I was only like 14 at the time. Otherwise, nope.

7. What color is the sky in your world? sky blue pink

8. Did you see those 2 planets that everyone is talking about this week? Yep, Demon #1 & I did the other night, before we knew what they even were.

9. Would you like to submit your own question for future Thursday Thunks? I probably will. LOL

10. Do you have a skin condition? Are you gonna tell us what it is? Sure... I have off & on psorasis. Sucks ass.

11. Have you ever had an STD? just kids

12. Do you do any crafts? if putting a photo in a frame counts, then yes. Otherwise, nope.

13. Peanut Butter & Jelly - what flavor is the jelly? Strawberry - and nothing more. Ok I lied, the occasional Raspberry works.

14. Stripes or polka-dots? Polka dots. They are funner.

15. What accent drives you crazy? Is it a good crazy or a bad crazy? I love Austrailian accents... oh la la! Oh and a deep southern drawl. Yum.

Shopping & stuff

So I've mentioned before and I'll mention it again... if you haven't noticed yet, the holiday shopping season is upon us and this is good news for me because, well.... if you haven't heard, I make a living off of this sort of spending money stuff.

I've been working my butt off the past few weeks adding designs to all 3 of my stores, mainly SledderWear, because, well... it's not just the holiday season - its' the snowmobile season and those whacked out people who like to ride those things also like to brag that they do in the form of t-shirts and stuff.

Which, of course, is more good news for me.
I was telling the husband the other day that this is the best of both worlds for me - I can make money making fun of him! Because, as you might have heard, the husband is one of those whacked out snowmobile dudes, too.

And he tends to be my best customer!

So in my plea to you - if you must spend money this holiday season, do it at my stores! (the links are over to the right somewhere... there's even a fancy search thing that you should try out!) I even do personalizations, in case you haven't heard.

I have designs from snowmobiling to fishing to scrapbooking to parenting to teenage stuff to tv stuff to things I still can't figure out why people buy.

And this ends my shamless plug post.

Flat on your back

So my bestest friend, Melissa, is in the hospital. She has 8 weeks to go until her baby (Brady) is due, 6weeks to be safe. She has placenta something - basically she can bleed out, which she already started bleeding.
She will possibly be in the hospital for the next 6 weeks, which really sucks for her & her kids (she's got 2 boys & a girl at home) because that means she'll be in that joint over Christmas. But you know what? She's better off where she's at. This is too serious for her to try to be at home.
Needless to say, I'll spend the next however many weeks worried out of my mind about this chic and her little bambino. I ain't ready to go through life without my bestest friend.
