The story continues...But with *PICS* ☺

(from left to right) 1st Row: We met at Saddle Ridge out in Parma at a mutual friends b*day, then talked on Myspace, exchanged phone numbers & then a few days later he picked me up to hang out.
2nd Row: Went to this great Italian restaurant nearby *PIZZAZZ* & while I was eating and he was drinking coffee we checked out one another's eyes... From there, we went to see HALLOWEEN & then a few days later he came over to my new place.
3rd Row: That's the "back" view of my apartment. Since I just moved in, Evil-E came along and went shopping with me so I could buy everything from a vaccumm to light bulbs :) and then his quiet "Church Boy" self came out and opened up about things and then I developed a crush on him. Who would have known? --> That a $hopping trip would result in some funny stories? *LOL*
4th Row: We've gone to Squire's Castle numerous times since we've been dating & VOILA! - still strong today :)!!!
OK - by now there's been far too much lovey dovey posts going on. And HOW MANY TIMES can we look at the same pic?
Onto a NEW SUBJECT :)!!!

Saturday Scavenger Shots #3 (ONE)

This week's word *ONE* was chosen by the *one* and only K_Sra. Over the weekends, I tend to take things slow and not go on the internet as much but I did stop by Evil-E's page and was shocked to see how he represented the number *ONE*. Awwwwwwwwwww, he is so cute when he shows his softer side :o) *blushes* and I know I definitely can't beat his creativity!!! Obviously, I know this isn't a competition but I'm not very good with words at times - and that's why I love adding pictures and videos to my posts. Anyways, enough blabbing and back to square *one* ;)! Evil-E is my #1!!!

Saturday Scavenger Shots #2 (Blue)

Although, I'm a tad bit late for Saturday's Scavenger Hunt, never fear... *Renee* is here :)! This week's word *BLUE* was chosen by the one and only Alien. Blue is one of my favorite colors. I have a blue rose tattoo on my upper right arm. Everybody who has seen it has asked the infamous question "Um.....Why is it blue?" And I simply say "Because it's my favorite color and I'm different." Anyways, enough rambling... And here's the story behind the pics. Below, is a bad pic of me (as I was saying Cheeeeeeeeeessseeee) that shows my tattoo. The one thing I regret is getting it on my arm. I wish I chose a spot that was more discreet.

Above are some items I can't live without!!! I am addicted to Calgon's Morning Glory body spray. I started wearing that in high school and even today (over 10 years later) it's my signature scent. Below is a color changing lamp (which is blue but kind of hard to tell by this pic) I have on my night-stand. Right next to it is a card from Evil-E. Every time I'm blue, I read it before bed to cheer me up.

Below is a picture I took of Evil-E, while we were at the beach (Mentor) two weeks ago. The sky was very blue that day :) and oh*so*pretty!

And last but not least, that painting of the blue rose ~> (please look to your right) was created by Evil-E, which he gave to me on my birthday. We just started dating and he knew how much I loved roses and glitter & with his creativity and wonderful heart, he came up with a beautiful blue rose along with some touching words :)! That is one flower that will last a lifetime & because of him, he turned my blue♥ heart back to red♥!

*Lights* Camera ◙ Action! Take 3...

Seems like the movie posts have been a big hit in blogger world :)~ so this week, I present to you comedies. We all could benefit from a good laugh or two :) he hee, and like the old saying (that is very true)~ "Laughter is the best medicine." Here are some of my favorite comedies.



This clip is called *WHO IS YOUR DADDY AND WHAT DOES HE DO? LOL - the last few kids are funny!*

"LIFE STINKS" (1991)
A rich businessman makes a bet he can survive on the streets of a rough Los Angeles neighborhood for 30 days completely penniless. During his stay he discovers another side of life and falls in love with with a homeless woman. Although the plot summary doesn't seem funny, there's one scene in this movie that always cracks me up.

"AMERICAN PIE" (The original)

What are your favorite comedies?

*Winter* S.P.R.I.N.G☂, Summer ☀, or Fall?

Ahhhhh ~ Summer is coming close to an end :( and soon *fall* will be upon us. Fall happens to be my favorite season ☺! I ♥ when the weather is just right. Not too hot, but not too cold. I was born in October and have always been a fall baby. I love taking walks in the park during this time of year, breathing in the crisp, cool autumn air, wearing jeans and a hoodie (ah, my favorite) without feeling like a freak since I even dress like that at times in the summer and I love Halloween. I love the ~eeriness this season brings. I'm going to do a twist and do my 1st poll on here. (Thanks to Eric and his polls, they are now in my head). What is your favorite season? Please list from most favorite to least favorite. A.) Winter B.)Spring C.)Summer D.)Fall

I'll start off.

I HATE WINTER beyond belief. I get the winter blues... It's too cold and when it gets dark by 4:00 in the afternoon, that brings me down.

The *SNUGGIE* ツ...

Evil-E and I were flipping through the channels & came across this commercial for "The Snuggie" (known as the blanket with sleeves) and at the same time we were like "WHAT THE FUCK?" and couldn't stop laughing. At first I thought this was some spoof off of old "SNL" reruns ha ha but unfortunately I was wrong. These people look like MONKS or cult members. Below is the commercial I found on YouTube (not a very clear video, but if you follow the direct link below you will see the SNUGGIE in crystal clear footage). And the greatest part is, it comes in 3 different colors!!! YES, YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT FOLKS ;)!

P.S. Unfortunately I have bad news for my fellow cult members. According to the snuggie site "There is a limit of 6 blankets per order."

Saturday Scavenger Shots #1 (Animal)

This is my 1st for the Saturday Scavenger Hunt & this weeks word is *Animal* which was chosen by Churlita. I'm a huge animal lover :) so this shall be easy. Below is my lil' baby NEMO :)! When I used to live with my mom and step-dad, there were 3 cats in the house. Casper, Nimbus and Nemo. Casper and Nimbus are brothers (they are camera shy so no pics of them), and then we got Nemo a year later and although he's now full size he's so petite I call him my baby :)! He's always hiding so that's how I came up with the name Nemo :)! I love baby Neems :)!

Below is of a baby-tiger (portrait like sketch/etching) I did back in my college days in art class.

This next picture contains two animals ;)! Evil-E (my wild animal ha haa) and their family dog *POOKIE* - pic taken during Easter '08! Don't we make such a happy family together lol ;) ?!?!?

And last but not least, here's my baby Menudo and I (taken several years ago during our skinny days...) He is a Chihuahua (kind of hard to tell in the pic) but now he kind of resembles a polar bear :( since everybody loves to feed him.

One of my favorite animals in the world are baby *orangutans* :)!!! Awwwwwwwwww, isn't this so freakin adorable?!?!? I hope one of these days, I'll be able to hold one of them in my arms (no matter how bad they smell according to a show on Animal Planet) and get a really cute picture :)!

*Lights* Camera ◙ Action! Take 2...

This week, I bring you *HORROR*! Out of all genres, horror flicks is #1 on my list. I love the adrenaline rush I get when I watch these movies. Knowing that these movies are primarily fiction (although some are based on true events) is the main reason I don't get scared by them. Below are some clips/and trailers from my favorites!

"The Strangers"

This douche is no stranger on Mtv's The Hills.

Rob Zombie's "Halloween"

"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (The Original)

"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (2003 feat. Jessica Biel)

Some of my other favorite scary movies include "Fire From the Sky", the original "Halloween" series, "Friday the 13th" & "A Nightmare on Elm Street" series, "The Mothman Prophecies", "Wrong Turn", "The Hitcher" (2007) and a oldie but goodie "Wheels of Terror."

What horror movies (if any) are your favorite?

Dolphins to the rescue :)!

Lately I've been watching a lot of shows on Animal Planet and one of the episodes was truly amazing! I've always loved dolphins and knew they were gentle towards humans but I didn't know to what extent how intellectual they really are.

The show was about a group of lifeguards swimming off the coast of New Zealand and a pod of dolphins came to their rescue when a great white shark was swimming underneath them. The dolphins bunched the four swimmers together by circling about 4-8 centimetres from them, and slapping the water with their tails for about 40 minutes. At first the lifeguards had no idea what was going on and they thought the dolphins were going to attack them but then the oldest guy drifted from the group and realized that a shark was near and the dolphins were there to help them.

Below is a clip (the picture is poor quality but that's the only video on YouTube that I could find) from the show.

The show had a happy ending ~ nobody was hurt and if it wasn't for the dolphins saving the lifeguards, who knew what could have happened!

One of the things I would love to do in my lifetime is to swim with dolphins :)! Just not in the ocean ;)! I used to love SEAWORLD but those f@ckers took it away from the location here in Ohio.

*Lights* Camera ◙ Action! Take 1...

I'm a big movie buff and love all kinds of genres - from horror flicks, to comedies, drama and romance, etc. etc... Today's theme will focus on ♥R.O.M.A.N.C.E♥ flicks. Below, I have included some of my favorite scenes from these movies:

Titanic - Heaven Scene

The Notebook- I love when Noah says, "Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing." LOL - on how much I can relate to this quote since I'm a pain in the ass 99% of the time. I don't mean to be :( though!

In this scene - it goes a lil something like this! Young Allie: Why didn't you write me? Why? It wasn't over for me, I waited for you for seven years. But now it's too late. Young Noah: I wrote you 365 letters. I wrote you everyday for a year. Young Allie: You wrote me?Young Noah: Yes... it wasn't over, it still isn't over [kisses Allie]


TOP GUN - Take My Breath Away

OK - enough of this lovey dovey shit. Sorry BOYS for torturing you! I will be shocked if you made it this far with the movie clips hee heee ;)! To all my girls out there reading this. Which romance movies are on your list?

Next week, I will choose another genre. Possibly horror!

Knock...(((KNOCK))) Who's There?

Recently, I saw an eerie show on the Discovery Channel called "A Haunting - House of the Dead" which was about a family's house that had paranormal activity going on in there and it brought back some memories of my own (but not as scary)...

It was a typical, quiet, Saturday afternoon (this was when I lived at home with my mom and step-dad) and my mom and step-dad were away which made the day even better. I slept in since I didn't have to work and then my lazy ass finally got in the shower. As the water was running, I heard a loud knock on the door and I figured that the folks came home and my mom wanted something, so I yelled "WHAT do you want?" Since she didn't reply back, I kept the water on and continued to shampoo my hair and then it happened again - but the knock was much louder and there were two knocks. Once again I yelled out "MOM, WHAT DO YOU WANT?" And there was no answer... The knocks have stopped.

I wrapped myself in a towel and I opened the bathroom door but nobody was around besides the 3 cats. I looked out the front door and only my car was in the driveway. I convinced myself thinking they came home for a few minutes and they needed to tell me something or whatever, so I figured to ask them later what they wanted.

Later in the evening, I asked my mom what the hell was that all about, and she was like "What are you talking about?"

I told her about the knocks and she said something like "Oh you're silly.... You knew we weren't home. It was probably coming from the front door or maybe the cats were playing by the door."

I know that sound was defitnitely not from the cats and not coming from the front door. They have different sounds, if ya know what I mean.

A few months later, the roles reversed... I wasn't home and when I got home my mom asked me what I wanted and I'm like "HUH? What are you talking about?" She asked why were you knocking on our door while we were sleeping? I replied "That wasn't me... I wasn't home!" She then said "Stop playing around, what did you want?" Once again I said "I have no idea what you're talking about."


I was cleaning out the bathroom and stood on top of the toilet to get down this old wicker basket (had fake flowers in out) that has been hanging in the bathroom since we moved in. I couldn't stand looking at it anymore and I wanted it gone. While I unlatched the basket from the hook, it fell to the floor. Underneath the flowers were newspaper clippings about a person, along with an old compact *mirror*, watch & a few other things (looked like broken jewerly). I was kind of freaked out from what I saw and I placed everything in a box and gave it to the folks. I didn't want to throw it away knowing there was some personal meaning behind this all and maybe that (((KNOCK))) was that person/spirit coming back for their things. Who knows for sure?

If you ever had a freaky encounter of your own, I wanna hear from you!

Last night, as I was flipping through the channels I came across a movie called "Eight Below". Instantaneously I fell in love with this movie since it involved dogs. This movie was based on the dogs fight for survival in the Artic. Although it was just a movie, I love how animals (of all kinds) have this natural instinct about them by helping each other out. Eight Below reminds me of March of the Penguins. Both movies brought a tear to my eye, but Eight Below has a happy ending :D! I give both movies TWO THUMBS UP :)!

A scene from *Eight Below*

Mario, Luigi, King Koopa, Nicole Richie & my former Spanish teacher!?!?!

WTF??? you may be asking yourself or questioning what the heck these people/some fictional ones have in common - right? After reading Tara's latest dream post, I'll go ahead and share my crazy dreams. Maybe there's something in Ohio water, I tell ya ;) haa haa.

Friday night - was strange dream #1. I was at an Italian Deli/restaurant with a group of people and King Koopa (YES that freaky green creature from Nintendo) was about to arrive and he wanted to "talk" to me. I became very nervous upon his arrival so I went upstairs to the bathroom and hid from the gang. I kept hearing my name being called so I finally gave in and went back to the table. THERE HE WAS - KING KOOPA himself sitting there but without a mask/or some silly green costume on. He was a big Italian fat man and he took me aside to confess his love for me. He wanted to impress me, so he took me into his private plane and said that he loved me and that Mario isn't right for me. Mario just happened to be (Evil-E) in this dream *LOL* ! I told King Koopa the truth - that my heart wasn't for him, it will always be with Mario and then he asked me about Luigi and then I was lost in space. I told him Luigi was never in my life and then when we landed and walked back into the restaurant, King Koopa went on his way and I walked in to celebrate my love with Mario. There was some Italian music playing and I danced on the table with Nicole Richie (she came out of no-where as well) and the last thing I said was "OPPA!" which means hooray in Greek.

Then Saturday night I had another strange dream. I was sitting in a classroom setting and my former Spanish teacher from high school, Mr. Turk (who I had a crush on back in the days) was teaching the class. As the bell rang & everybody left I sat at my desk and asked Mr. Turk if everything was ok, because he seemed really distraught & not like himself. He said yeah but paused. I figured it would be best to mind my own business so as I left his class he told me to wait. And then he said how he had a crush on me but then said something like "NO, this isn't right.... I'm just really confused!" I didn't know what to say so I left and then I talked to some girls who were in my study hall about it and then one girl asked me what was I going to do about it? and then I woke up!!! Damn*it -----> I hate when that happens!!! When you wake up from a dream and all you want to know is how is it going to end.

VERY WEIRD though, don't ya think? Anybody else having weird dreams lately?!?!? Post them here :)!

Sometimes it's all in a name!

Maybe "The *Bullshit* Blogger" isn't the best name. Since I'm new to this whole scene, I would like your input on what I should name my blog. Any ideas?

Toilet Thursday!

Every Tues & Thursday I will review the best & the worst toilets around town. Ever since I was a wee lil' kid, I was fascinated with TOILETS. *WHY?* you may ask, heck if I know. Maybe in my past life (if there's such a thing) I was an animal of some sort always looking for a place to go or maybe I was the person who invented the best invention around ;)! You just never know...

Beachwood Place (or as I call it "Bitchwood" Mall - love the stores - not the people). They remodeled the whole place and the bathrooms in the food-court (pic below) are beautiful!

When I get a pimpin' camera one of these days - I'm going to take lots of pics for you fine folks ;)! Until then, I will take what I can get ;) off the net. Shhhhhh - don't blow my cover now. Back to the bathrooms now. The bathrooms there are very clean, automatic flushes (which tend to be a bitch at times and not work when you stand and then ya gotta find that lil tiny button to make it work), automatic sinks 'n' all. It feels like a Japanese resort when you walk in! The walls are painted light brown (like the color of chocolate milk) and the doors to each stall resemble rice paper. The essence you get when you walk in is very refreshing :)!

And at Nordstrom's - they have a huge bathroom with a seating/waiting room that's bigger than my apartment. You could literally throw a party up in there. There are about 10 stalls in there & it's always been very clean when I've gone in there.

Beachwood Place gets an A+ !!!

Say What?!?! ~ Funny words of the day

ANGINA - Sounds like a problem going on down there in a girl's southern region but the actual definition is:

-noun Pathology.
1. any attack of painful spasms characterized by sensations of choking or suffocating.
2. angina pectoris.
3. any disease of the throat or fauces.

PIANIST - I used to play the piano so I know all about this word but when it's stated out-loud it sounds funny :)! Sounds like penis with an "ist" at the end.

a person who plays the piano, esp. one who performs expertly or professionally.
