Monday workouts...

I adore this guy, I need to try some of his videos. Maybe it will teach me to dance a little better! Looks way more fun than my Insanity Max:30 that I started for the 2nd time through.

Mother of god...

Breakfast, lunch and supper I think. It was...interesting. Yes, that's bacon on the top of my donut. It was only OK...

Still getting used to the new hair...



I was gifted a bottle of this recently, it's pretty harsh stuff! The description made me laugh.

The solution


I cannot decide how I feel about it. My hair did not turn out how I'd hoped but I don't hate it. It's very vibrant and I've had multiple people tell me today they love it and wished they could pull off something like it. I advised yesterday I felt the same way, now I HAVE to pull it off!

Here we go...

I feel old...


I think a lot of people have that one movie they watch every Christmas. When I was a kid it was Home Alone and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Then Bad Santa took over that spot of yearly viewing and has stayed there for many years. I am so incredibly excited for this:

My hair appointment is tomorrow, this is what I'm considering. Any other suggestions? I could stick with the fire look that fades nicely to the ombre, or go natural again!

Sitting at my desk at 10:00 at night with a Peanut Buster Parfait in front of me and Louis CK pops into my head. This is absolutely my cinnabon! Augh...tomorrow is a new day.

"...yeah with the hot cum, dude I don't care!" Haha, love it!

New shirts are best shirts

He's still my favorite

It has been a very long week indeed. Now to clean for game night!

Deus Ex

Hoping the game is as good as anticipated. It would sure make a great movie:

Suicide Squad

I finally saw Suicide Squad!! I am sad to say I didn't love it, however I didn't hate it. I was disappointed as it is very rushed. When you look at other superhero movies (Batman vs Superman, Marvel movies etc.) they put so much effort into the stories, explaining everything and everyone in detail. In Suicide Squad it was here's a tiny bit of information about each character, a little extra for key characters, and here's less information on the ones who will be killed off right away. Then it was GOOOOO!! SHOOT, EXPLOSION, BOSS FIGHT done...

That being said I LOVED Harley, she was just too cute and completely psychotic. Great casting. Harley and Deadshot are absolutely the spotlight characters. Deadshot's character had no depth, very shallow and I feel Will was just placed as the token guy as they need a leader, why not him. He sure ages gracefully though!

As many others have said, the lack of the Joker is disappointing. Jared Leto does a decent job as Joker from what little you do see. He's more of a crazy slime-ball, with good eyes, facial expressions and laugh for the part. On the other hand, Heath Ledger is still my favorite, he was the absolute perfect psychopath. Sad he's gone.
I'll watch it again, I enjoyed the action and the bit of comic relief. And Harley, oh Harley. I am hoping for bigger and better things for Justice League, I already feel like I know more about these characters coming into action than I do about those as part of the Suicide Squad. And of course I cannot wait for Wonder Woman! A great time for movies when you're a nerd!

Of course...

I've been curious about the Loot Crates for a while and avoided them because I'm cheap and hate spending money, and I wouldn't know what to do with all the stuff! Well, the ad for this month's Loot Crate DX sold me.

Of course I click on it with full intention of buying because it says Handsome Jack in the ad. Then what do I see? Suicide Squad?! Deadpool!?!? TAKE MY MONEY! The realization then hits that it's sold out...NOOOOOOO!


I love the idea of these jazz covers, and this Haley Reinhart is incredible. Still doesn't beat the first time I ever heard Mad World.

Which then makes me want to watch my favorite game trailer of all time which also ended up being my favorite game. And now I want to play Infinite for a 4th time...

I really hate rug-burn from forearm planks...not a fun reason to have rug-burn!


The horror!

The mushroom massacre! Was outside at work and noticed the slugs took out the mushroom last night. Soooo many slugs out there!

I have watched 0 Olympic events. In fact the only thing I did watch was the opening ceremonies and only because it was on the TVs in the pub when I was out for beers. I do, however, find these hilarious (found on social media, original author unknown):

Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators so far during
the Summer Olympics that they would like to take back:
1. Weightlifting commentator: "This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her
snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing."
2. Dressage commentator: "This is really a lovely horse and I speak from
personal experience since I once mounted her mother."
3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: "I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and
4. Boxing Analyst: "Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in
boxing, but none of them really that serious."
5. Softball announcer: "If history repeats itself, I should think we can
expect the same thing again."
6. Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like
it. In fact you can see it all over their faces."
7. At the rowing medal ceremony: "Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC
president is hugging the cox of the British crew."
8. Soccer commentator: "Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got
eleven Dicks on the field."
9. Tennis commentator: "One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that,
before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them... Oh
my God, what have I just said?"


Took a break to walk around the yard at the office quickly, found this beautiful fungus nestled under an evergreen bush. It's about 6" tall, and I thought it was beautiful.

One of those days...

One of those days where chaos begins at 7:00 AM, by 9 I'm completely unimpressed and wishing the day were over. I'll choose to be thankful I am healthy enough to get out of bed, that I have a bed to sleep in and a roof over my head, and that I have a reason like a job to get up in the morning!


So there is someone in the UK with my same name. My e-mail address is, hers is and for some reason google does not differentiate between the two. I cannot help but wonder, considering how many of her e-mails I get, how many of mine does she get? This person is religious, takes part in youth camps, religious weekends and church groups. She shops...a lot. She goes on trips, makes hotel reservations and uses travel points. She signs up for so many frequent customer cards, point systems and discount cards.

I'm so tired of getting e-mails, spam, advertising, notifications of things she's buying, signing up for, reserving and being asked by churches to bring things, show up at certain times, volunteer for this and that. Google fix your shit! I need a new e-mail address, most people won't appreciate receiving correspondence from "Squeeze Toy". "Thank you Ms. Toy for your recent contact." Perfect and professional, right?

Now to either find a new e-mail provider or think of a new address that is available...then the horrible process of informing those who need to know of the change. Joy!

Back to reality today. I'm not sure why I bother taking holidays. I work so hard to prepare, doing weeks of work in advance so when I'm away nothing is outstanding. I come back today to find my inbox overflowing and my desk full. I haven't even touched my inbox yet, 3 hours into my day and I'm just finally catching up re-doing things people tried doing for me when I was away. There is a reason I told everyone just to leave my work until when I'm back! What a waste of time...

At least I'm alone this afternoon and I can blare the Suicide Squad soundtrack to reflect my rage!

Retiring some shirts

Went through my shirt collection and decided to retire a few for varying reasons. Most of these had stains and were falling apart. The piano necktie was a horrible fit, Johnny 5 I wear as pjs now. The ones I'll miss the most are Spider Pig, Dr. Mario and the Star Was/Wizard of Oz. Now I have room for more, right?

A long awaited Cards Against Humanity night tonight! Ordered my missing expansions and so excited to play.

My bigger blacker box is almost full! Read through these as I shuffled and they are amazing. Now to finish shuffling! Thank you manual shuffler...

Shadows of Brimstone game night

Such a great game. Finally found some people to play Shadows of Brimstone with on a regular basis. Last night was our first adventure where we didn't die. The game has a big learning curve and when the majority are new it makes things difficult. I think they caught on now and we survived...barely. Now to read through all my new expansions so I can teach those too!   

Made me laugh

New shirt day!


That day you finish your wrist tattoo and wonder how many
people think you cut yourself. Wow the inner wrist sure hurts!

Friday, August 12, 2016

Do they hurt you?

You don't like tattoos? Awesome, don't get any. Had someone judge me today. "Why do you do that to your body? When are you going to stop?" It's my body, and getting a tattoo is an experience like none other! You never forget it, my body is just fine and is fucking beautiful.

Then she goes on, "What are you going to think when you're 60?" I'm going to have a lot bigger things to worry about when I'm 60. If I need a new job? I don't want to work somewhere that judges people based on their looks and that won't allow tattoos. A relationship? Well since my tattoos are as much of me as my nose, my eyes, my hair, they better be OK with them or they will be left behind.

Don't judge me please. 


Great shirt choice for my last day of vacation. Monday back into business attire!

Nature rules!

I love the things I find on my solo hikes with no one there to judge me on the strange,
random photos I take.

I had a few ask about my Mandalas after posting my newest ink. I started drawing them as a form of stress relief. I love art, so much, but cannot draw. I took a fashion drawing class in college when I was studying marketing and always wished I was better at it. I however do feel I have a talent for coloring.

Mandalas are easy once you learn the process. Each is so different and I love coloring them too. I joined a 100 mandala challenge and so far have 6 under my belt (not including my many practice ones). Here they are:
