QotD: It’s All In The Stars

What's your sign?  What do you think of astrology and horoscopes?

I'm a Pisces, born March 2nd.  Most of the characteristics of the Pisces are pretty in sync with me.  The attribute that is most on point for me is the artistic traits.

Pass the pepper please….

Confession #1056

I know I told you that your beloved black pepper mill fell off the counter and broke. It didn't – I threw that fucker in the trash! I was so sick of you putting a coating of cracked black pepper on every dinner you made. I hated that I had to rinse the cooked chicken and steak off before the girls and I could eat it. Pepper on your lasagna?? Who does that? You like black pepper. We don't! How many times can I tell you to pepper your own dinner and not ours????? Seriously, I think you do just do it to piss me off. It is one button you know how to push.

If you are wondering – the red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper – they are in the trash too. I will just keep on "forgetting" to get them when I go grocery shopping.

Confession #1058

Why the FUCK does your male friend sign his e-mails, "Love, ****"? What the FUCK is that all about? Let me find out that you so much as LOOKED at another man and you are HISTORY, you erectile dysfunctioning, premature ejaculating, non-sex initiating &^%$#@.

QotD: Well, I’d Never!

What did you think you would never ever do… but did? 
Submitted by Murky.  

Have a child!  When I was young I said I would NEVER have kids, and actually babies and small kids didn't really take to me when I was a younger – perhaps they sensed my nervousness and disconnection to them.  When I was 22 I decide I wanted one.  I found a good candidate to go half on a baby with (later married him – then divorced him).

My daughter in now 17 years old!!!! She makes me roll my eyes to the sky at times – but I wouldn't trade her for the world!

Ohhhh I just remember something I certainly thought I would NEVER EVER DO!!!  Here, I will show you..

Tat

The symbol is "mother" in Japanese and I had him put her name above it.  I didn't like tattoos and didn't understand why a person would want to permanently mark their body.  After my mother died in July of 2005 I wanted to do something to honor her, something that would remind me of her daily – so, I decided to get a tattoo.  I have a low tolerance for pain, and had been told that tattoos hurt like hell! Hurt is an understatement when it comes to tattoos!!!! When started on the "D" I almost pissed my pants!  It felt like he was carving in my arm with a freakin switchblade that had been heated on hot coal! – she was worth the pain.  I love how it turned out and I certainly understand tattoos better now.

QotD: Today’s Top 5

Tuesday Treats

Thought I would treat myself today, so I swung by Best Buy and picked up a game for my Nintendo DS Lite that I read about called Cooking Mama, maybe it will bring out my "inner chef".  I also picked up the new John Legend CD, Once Again.

Editorial Review
Source: Amazon.com

It takes guts, if not outright egomania, to abandon your given surname and adopt a loaded one like Legend, but the former John Stephens must have sensed that loftiness would one day be his calling card: Once Again, the follow-up to the Grammy-gobbling, platinum pile-on that was Get Lifted, surpasses expectations. Not that it bears much relation to its predecessor. Again again trots out a stable of talented, modern-minded producers–Raphael Saadiq, Legend comrade Kanye West, and the unsinkable will.i.am–but it's nowhere near as self-conscious about embracing the old-school as the knowing, R&B edge-skimming Lifted. Don't expect a derivative mash of smudgy, nostalgia-filching sounds, though, because despite its retro leanings, what's in store somehow crackles with currency. Call it neo-retro if you must, but never call it unimaginative: first single "Save Room" coasts, drifts, and floats along a ponderous path spiked by a cool keyboard-y crescendo; second single "Heaven" busts out a big, busy beat over a slow seduction; and a couple of selections–"Each Day Gets Better" and "PDA"–are so bright and twirly they seem custom-made for dizzy love scenes or jaunty, sunny-day skips through the park. Maybe the most unusual track is "Show Me," a rock song that pilfers elements of Hendrix and finds Legend climbing a few octaves to sound, weirdly, like Jeff Buckley, but it works: so slippery is its beat and so affecting are its hope-laced lyrics that, oddness aside, it's among the disc's best. Sandwiched as it is among 14 songs that all sound like future classics, that's saying something. –Tammy La Gorce
