{September 17, 2013}   Howie Mandel Takes It All

My family has found a new game show on NBCTV to watch together, Howie Mandel’s Take It All.

(Actually, we watch it on Hulu. Watch television live? Only if the internet is out!)

On a random note, raise your hand if you remember way back when Howie Mandal had hair?

He’s still a cutie though and I’d hit that if his OCD and various other phobias would allow it!

Anywho, back to the subject at hand, Take It All.

If you haven’t watched the show yet, it reminded me of that Christmas game Bad Santa or whatever it is called.

Basically the first contestant chooses a door (number, color, symbol, or whatever they are using on that particular episode).

The next contestant could either snatch the prize of a previous contestant or choose to open the unknown prize.

And so on and so forth until the last door is opened and the first contestant has a chance to take from an opponent.

It is the final head-to-head that I like the best though.

It is where the real battle of the wits take place.

Where the contestants try to cess and/or psych each other out.

The final two battle it out.

If both contestants use Keep Mine, then they both walk away with what they have already won.

If both contestants choose Take It All, then they both walk home empty handed.

 If only one of the contestants chooses Take It All, the final winner gets to Take It All away.

If you want to learn how to be a contestant on take it all, you have to keep watching the casting page on NBC.com: http://www.nbc.com/casting.

As for me, I would always Take It All.

After all, I am a go big or go home type of gal.

Plus, well, I don’t trust you to screw me over!

How about you?

Play nice or Play to Win?

{August 30, 2013}   Looking for Snarky Blogs

When I originally started this blog, it was intended as a depository for all the snarky, bitchy, lazy, whiny, procrastinating, narcissistic, introverted pieces of my life.

But, well, by the time I think about posting, I have completely forgotten what I was going to post about.

And, other types of blogs make me more money than this blog.

Aaaaaaannd, they can make me money passively. Ie, whether I update the site or not, I makes my $money$.

Maybe you missed the word lazy in that first sentence up there.

Go ahead, read it again.

I’ll wait…

After all, the longer you are on my blog, the better for me.

(I hope you caught the word narcissistic or you’ll have to go read that sentence again.)

Anywho, one way to keep me interested in writing on this blog is to actually read other blogs with other sharing similar personality traits.

Yes, there are folks out there just like me.

Who knew, right.

So, back to the point of this post.

Yes, there is a point to this post.

Kudos to you if you even read this far to see that there is a point to this post.

Ok, the point is…

I’m looking for some blogs to subscribe to read.

Two simple rules.

The blog must be sarcastic, snarky, bitchy, whiney, etc…etc…etc…that mostly laughs at yourself and the world around you.

You saw the list above.

(Sorry, mom blogs with perfect angel kids, I’m not overly interested. Well, unless your kids are perfect but you, my dear, are an unruly mess.)

Second rule is that you must have the ability to Subscribe by email.

Why?

Because that’s just how I roll.

If you fit those oh-so-strict requirements, list your blog post below and I will take a looksee and subscribe.

See?!

Told you that there was a purpose to this post.

~blows raspberry at the doubters~

{September 11, 2012}   Sometimes God yells NO!!!

Sometimes God whispers.

And sometimes God yells NO! in no uncertain terms.

Last week, I was seriously comtemplating becoming a full time transcriptionist in lieu of being a professional blogger.

The very next day, I awoke with an ear ache that precluded me being able to hear and type.

So, I put off doing any work until I got better.

But apparently putting it off was not good enough.

The next day my son upgraded my computer to Windows 7.

But, guess what, the audio controls were gone.

That’s right….no sound….no even with headphones….

No sound = no transcription.

Alrighty then…

There are other options….ie, using one of the kids’ laptops while they are in school.

Uh huh…

Only, I awoke with the carpal tunnel in my left hand so, yeah, no typing…

And that was when I realized that maybe God is putting his foot down on the subject.

I am meant to be a blogger.

And if I want a more steady income, then I need to actually work harder at being a professional blogger.

End of discussion.

And how do I know that I am on the right path.

Because as soon as I made the decision….

….my ear stopped aching…

…my son fixed the computer…

…and my carpal tunnel is gone…

Case closed.

So instead of doing blogging part time and becoming a full time transcriptionist, I have reversed the plan and I am back to being a full time blogger and doing transcription part time.

For one thing, I would hate to see what God would do to me next if I continue to be such a block head. Lol.

{July 24, 2012}   Television and Telecommuting

I recently saw a story on BusinessWeek.com that said that people from home usually watch television while working.

Well, duh?!?!

Unless you have a job that requires no background noise or you find having the television on distracts you from your work, then, yeah, chances are that you are going to have the television on while typing.

In fact, I am getting caught up on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on Hulu Plus while I write this post.

Based on a survey of 1,013 American office workers, conducted in June by Wakefield Research, 43 percent watch TV or a movie.

Yet all and all, I am probably still more productive than if I was doing the same job from an office.

That is because I am able to fit my work around my schedule.

Plus, if I am stuck for a blog post topic, I can always just write about the television show that I am watching…at least on this blog!

{June 20, 2012}   The privilege of touch

Touching another human being is not a right, it is a privilege.

Touch can send shivers up your spine.

Shivers of appreciation.

Shivers of revulsion.

I almost racked a guy on church property who touched me without permission.

It was not the touch, per se, but the intention behind the touch.

To cop a free feel.

Blech.

At the most, I would have given him the Church Hug.

Y’know the one.

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 27:  Julissa Fugeuroa (L...

There are approximately 370,000 city residents in low lying areas are under a mandatory evacuation order ahead of Hurricane Irene. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

Where you take all of your good bits and lean them back so they cannot even accidentally touch any of his.

It can also be referred to as the All We’ll Ever Be Is Friends Hugs.

You know that you have been given or received that hug. LMAO.
