I’m more then a little .. um.. BENT right now.

It’s 4:02 am .. yes.. that would mean IN THE FUCKING MORNING and I’ve spent the last million hours trying to fix my page layout.

You’ll notice that I have a different theme, right?

Yea.. HATE IT.

But it was the only theme that would let me put my widgets up and didn’t shift posts into weird places.

And while I’m cursing WordPress and almost.. ALMOST.. bounced my laptop off the wall.. it dawned on me.

This all started with Gerald Butler’s ass.

Confused?

Think I’m off the tiny rocker I’m on?

Noooooooooo!!!!!

I swear it’s because of Gerald Butler’s fine Scottish ass.

Here’s the deal..

The other day I used my iPod Touch to publish a post about how I just wanted to clear that I could spend the rest of my life staring at Gerald Butler’s ass and be perfectly content.

That was the only time I ever posted from my iPod and I think it did something to something because it was right after that that everything went haywire.

And when I say “everything”.. I mean EVERYTHING.

So I spent the entire time from then to now trying every single theme and playing around with settings and other bullshit and this is the closest I could come to normal.

Well.. my version of normal anyway.

And with that.. I’m going to do the adult.. responsible thing and try pulling an all-nighter because I have to be up in two hours and if I fall asleep, I won’t wake up until Wednesday!!

No…

Seriously…

What the FUCK happened to them?????

They were there and POOF! now they’re gone .. and GOD HELP THE UNIVERSE if I have to do it ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!!

Anybody got any idea what the %^&*( happened?

… can anyone help before I take a thousand straight pins and stick them all into the WordPress main page turning my laptop into a technological voodoo doll?

‘Cause last night I was monkeying around with changing the email address associated with my account and the gravatar (the little picture next to your name) disappeared.

I figured out that the picture is associated with the email address and NOT the actual wordpress account so I finagled some more and got my picture attached to the NEW email address..

A little message said that it was updated and would take .. A FEW MINUTES to take effect.

IT’S BEEN HOURS and there’s still the generic green design box showing.

If I check under the USERS options on the dashboard (where I changed the email address) it shows the correct picture so I don’t know WHAT the hell is happening!!

Any thoughts???

.. actually, I’d like to thank Gary.

Gary has an AWESOME blog. You really need to check it out. I never NOT laugh when I park my IP addy there.

Anyway.. so Gary passed along a recent award that he got to all the people he has listed on his blogroll.

And guess what?

I’M ONE OF THEM!!

ME!

ME!

Depressing… angry.. ME!!

NOTE: Heh.. sorry, had to include that because really, that was the most absurd thing I ever had said about me. Well.. ok.. being called a life size Barbie was the most absurd but it’s too early to split hairs right now!

Back to it..

So yea.. Gary gave me my first blog award and I’m literally tickled pick.. I mean PINK .. It’s a good feeling!

And with this award:

good-friends-award

… comes the condition that you pass it along.

And so I am..

To a really.. really.. good friend that has had her own adventures in life these past couple of months and has faced them all head on .. Jen512

So Jen.. enjoy!

Shhh!!! I’m going to tell you a secret!!

Are you ready?

Are you SURE??

Promise to keep this just between YOU and ME?

Okay then..

Here it is…

I have other things.. thoughts.. and opinions outside of my life with Chief.

<< insert thunder clapping and lightening here >>

There. I said it.

So like… I understand the appeal, ok?

Taking a peak into someone else’s life with all it’s highs and lows.. function and dysfuction.. is like taking a vacation from our own lives.

Not everyone uses the great Blog-O-Rama for enlightenment, opinion and just to gain a worldly perspective.

Sometimes.. people read other people’s blogs so that THEIR life doesn’t seem so tragic.

I get that. I do.

And even though my life is an open book blog and practically nothing is off limits.. I am not consumed by everything going on under my roof. To be fair, considering all that I have written, I can see how that might be a misconception.. But yknow, I have opinions about things that I like to share. And if you don’t agree with my opinions or thoughts or whatever.. feel free to comment and tell me why.. try to change my mind… I welcome healthy debate and interspection

However…

Do not..

DO NOT..

I repeat…

DO FUCKING NOT

… tell me to “stick with what I know” :: meaning my family dysfunction :: and not offer my opinions on controversial subjects.

I knew when I posted about Gay Marriage and Nationalized Healthcare that the subjects were touchy.. hence the word CONTROVERSIAL in the title line.

My inbox was flooded with email with people telling me .. basically.. to shut up.

Like .. oh.. my blog is read by the Government Good ‘Ol Boys who make every decision based on my views. Come on.

Curiously, no one issued a comment on those posts and my only summation is because they didn’t want a public bashlash.. so they whipped me privately :: and not in a good way! ::.

To those of you who did send me rude, nasty and condesending emails HERE’S THE MIDDLE FINGER FOR YOU

NOTE: ..because even though you state that you’ll NEVER read my blog again we both know that you will

I could give a hoot what you think about me or my views. But I do take issue with the notion that I am just some simple minded Tammy Wynett following fool.

Which reminds me of a funny story.

Years ago, I was stuck in a major traffic jam a half block from where I worked. In order NOT to block the intersection.. repeat.. IN ORDER TO NOT BLOCK THE INTERSECTION.. I pulled my car over to the side and slipped in behind a car parked barely legally next to a fire hydrant.

There was another car trying to make the turn onto the street where i had pulled over :: actually, he should have waited until I pulled out :: and was having a difficult time. So he rolled down his passenger side window and yelled:

LEARN TO DRIVE YOU DUMB BITCH.

Now.. freely call me a bitch because I’ll admit that I can be a major one with little effort but DUMB?

Nah.. I don’t think so.

So I grabbed a big, gooey Dunkin’ Donuts blue berry muffinc and threw it. It traveled right through my driver’s side window.. into his passenger side window and SPLAT.. it landed right on his cheek and then slow motioned fell onto his shoulder where it rolled down the front of his shirt and into his lap leaving a trail of crumbs and purple goo.

His face was priceless!!

And I said to him.. “don’t EVER call me DUMB!”

The point I’m trying to make is that I just sit here and type and whatever comes out at any given moment comes out. Nothing is pre-planned, no agenda is being followed.. no Kool-Aid will be served.

And Dude.. I’m one freakin’ person.. nothing I say matters anyway!
