peace, an empty stage & flying guitarist

Posted by Picasa

And he was here ...


What a cool adventure. Got a photo of the boy on stage... this is a very hard photo to collect .. I will admit ... with lights flashing, and people and objects in the way ... I was glad to have got this. Now I will move onto perfecting this shot ... LOVED the lights ... minus the the people that create the big sound associated with the objects.

What a day of adventure!!

The lone drummer .. will learn next time to make sure I get an excellent photo of him ... only because he will be otherwise impossible to shoot ...

this was an amazing concert ...and an amazing day .... this is truly enjoying the successes of hardwork and devotion ...

24 hours later

And the hair is still flat.

I took it out of the barrett that was holding onto the flatness, and now it is just hanging, and flat.

I'm not used to this amount of flatness, I am used to FATNESS! ha ha ha .. .quite an amusing comment for moir. Yes, ... I guess I am just used to being puffy all over .. except that I am not puffy all over ... except my hair. I'm about to get scruffy all over ... as soon as I clean out a box.

It's not my box ... it's the Jimmy's box .. except he will never clean out the box, as it's as good as gone from his sights .. since it left the bedroom of his in January .. or was it February .. at any rate .. it's a box, with his stuff .. that I think he wanted, but maybe didn't ... and it's been quietly sitting .. and taking up space, which I now want to reclaim the space ... for my own special stuff ... so now it must go!

I am HALF inclined to not look in the box .. and just GIVE it away. I will brace myself ...


I had an interesting day yesterday .. almost a proposition. Not of one that some people would expect ... it's all about doing something absolutely surreal and out of the box for me, it's almost comical. BUT ... I am still of the mind that 2012 has something totally new and adventuresome instore for me .. so my mind is open to opportunities that might float past .. !! Keep you posted .. like that promised picture of the troll ... behind the chair... in the livingroom.


In other things ... very exciting ... got to straighten the girls GORGI-LOCKS again today ... this PIPchick of mine has got luxurious hair. OH .. and in things even more exciting than her hair ... she started making a movie trailer with her ipad ... ohmagawd .. too funny. With the additional HELPS of the movie features ... this PIPchick is on her way to STEVEN.SPIELBERG proportions!


Well .. onto that box ... and other assorted items that will consume my day!ENJOY!

Wicked and old

It's wicked, to be old.
To be old, it's wicked.
Story is true.
However it unfolds.


In things that are possible because it's a Monday:

Straightened the girls hair with the new flattening ironing. Wow ... her hair is hugely longy, and hugely flat ... and dreamy like.

I straightened my hair, then it became crooked. As in one side much bigger than the other side. Alas ... I didn't straighten my hair, but curl it ... so one side ended up being hugely curlier than the otherside ... which didn't do much at all, except straighten. In the end I just tucked the hugely curly side behind my ear, and well the straight side .. it stayed straight. Today ... now the hair has NO EMOTION WHATSOEVER, it's straight, and oddly complicated looking. I have tossed it together with a barrett, but it needs some life rejuvenating moisture thrown back into it, to give it that fresh and frazzled look that it requires, and somehow I am content with. This will all have to be fixed tomorrow ... as today is not the day to start the hair rejuvenation process ...

Onto other things even more complicated:

There is a fresh bag of frozen blueberries in my freezer. I put them in their, except now I am afraid to take them out. They are neatly positioned in a precise location, where one wrong move, and the whole shelf will be sitting at my feet, freshly departed from the freezer shelf without my approval. BUT ... I do wish for my yogurt and blueberries ... so something is going to have to cave ...

I found some polysporin that I have had kicking around for pink eye. I don't know if I have pink eye, but I certainly do have something ... so I will conveniently use up the entire bottle ridding myself of red eyes ... if not I will head back to the doctor ... the current antibiotic regime that i have visited the doctor with twice in the last two weeks doesn't seem to have an effect on the eyebulb situation apparently....

It's Monday ... and guess what that means ... I am guessing about whether I am going to my camera club tonight .. I think it's tonight ... because I didn't go last week .. SO SO SO SO disappointed .. just remembered that I put it in "my notes" ... camera club isn't until NEXT WEEK. ooohhh. I think tonight I am going to go on a walking tour and take some photographs .. I am going to head over to the little part of downtown Port.Coquitlam and see what great things I can come up with. Rats.

Moving on ... you know .. I might just be getting afraid of th little Santa Claus that sits behind our chair in the living room. ... in all other seasons, other than the festive christmas event .. he really does look like a little troll ... I will post a picture .. ONE day ... and you will see for yourself.

Meanwhile back at the ranch:

The PIP is now 15. She's a doll. A real life doll. A real life PIP doll. With super beautiful hair. What a lucky PIP doll she is!

The Jimmyson... his band spent 7 hours in a studio last night, after he worked for 8 hours yesterday, after sleeping for 4.5 hours, after being out at a gathering for 3 hours, after having band practice for 3 hours, after working for 8 hours. He has mud on his runners ... he will have to find the time to clean them ... between his crazy shedule of events.

Now ... it's time to deal with the hair .. again .. and fill my eyes with more polysporin drops ... I will go to the group with a good joke .. that way I can cry myself into crazy laughter ...

The dog will be arriving sometime in the third week of July.GAWD.

Having some fun ...

Posted by Picasa

Turn it up a notch ...

The jimmyson made me a CD ... I quite like it .. it goes with the brain, where I was at ... at some point in my life. .... I am not quite sure ... but why is that I really like Neil Diamond? If I actually watch him .. he is stiff, and almost doesn't look comfortable standing on a big stage with flashes happening a hundren a second ... but rather ... it's that guys sound ... or the sound that is incorporated with his sound. I don't know .. whoever the boss of Neil's career is the winner here ... cause did he come up with the big brass sounds, or the ladies singing in the background, or of course the huge piano riffs that find their way through his songs ... cause that man is rather stiff ... it looks like he wishes to break free .. but then doesn't.

In the meantime .. his recordings from the studio are amazing ... and currently I am in love "longfellow serenade" ... it just sounds good to me people .. well that is when I am not listening to "sooliamon" .. I love the bizarre sounds that arrive in the song, and somehow fit. Excellent ... producer or engineer people .. just excellent!

In other things turned up a notch:

The Jimmy is out there ... driving! I refused to let him drive up to his band practice last night .. so instead I made the SIR drive with him ... The Jimmy was waiting on the day that he could drive to band practice ... and yesterday was just that day ... omagawd da Jim ... driving the Mazda5 up the hills, and stopping ... with the manual transmission ... not sure what happened ... last week this time he couldn't drive ... and now he can ... I am thrilled with the GRAND purchase of driving lessons ... best money spent ... and huge peace of mind just over ONE year from now ... I will be purchasing the SAME thing for the Fusspot. Can't believe that a FUSSPOT will be able to drive this time next year! Actually .. I love that fact that she will be in a driving mode ... he and the Sir will go jeeping together ... that's big in the notch factory revolution.

In not so notcheville ...

We have the PUP factor happening. zzzzzzzzzzz. Yes, I will hit the snooooooze button on that one. BUT ... it will be just so exciting to see this blog filled with ten trigazillion photos ...

In other things not notchville:

Have stalled in the reading of the books department, and have taken up a complete transformation with words with friends. The situational crisis is that I can only have twenty friends at one time playing the game. OK seriously ... ONE can't have TOO many friends when playing words with friends. Somehow I am going to have to resolve this current high stress situation. GAWD.

In things crazy:

Hmm .. shouldn't be hard .. this is me ...

The Jimmyson gave me a sneakpeak of his backpack yesterday. This guy doesn't purposely walk around with things of this sort of obstacles ... except when it is holding a DOUBLE EDGED LIGHT SABER! He is 7 all over again. He brought it to school ... and proceeded to make grand entrances to all his classes ... then because almost all the teachers he has are MALES ... they then grabbed it ... and began flinging it around ... I guess that is why I didn't get the phone call from the school complaining that my son had brought a weapon to school ... because at the end of the day his play experience had been enhanced by the education from the teachers in LIGHT SABERING.  Today we are back to dullsville, and the lightsaber has been left by the piano .. where todays great excitement will come from the boy playing "freebird - live version" - so there is no light sabering included in that festival of fun.

So I had my hair chomped a couple of weeks back, and I have been dealing with it ... I think I have had maybe two good hair days since the chomp effect ... I even bought a big huge super sonic brush to defrizz and enhance the big curls that my hair has the ability to do ... HULLOOOO .. I'm still waiting.... I'm usually half glass full ... still waiting ... since the huge chomp for some control. I guess will adjust my frame of mind .. I will never have control!

My little mini ... (aka Fusspost, Pip, Fusslina, FussyDoll, or Princessdoll) ... is almost as tall as her brother ... well .. she has only a couple of inches beneath him. The latest converstions taking place are one that was planted in our heads last week ... the jimmysons friends dating his sister. Sparks started to fly ... from the Jimmysons eyes .. and equally from some of the friends ... enlightenment. One fellow was terrified at the thought ... the wrath of the double edged light sabering brother ... !

The ANTMAN is coming this week ... I booked the appointment .. I will let the SIR deal with the situation ... ah yes ... letting the husbandman deal with lifes little discontments .... moisture ants .. nothing content about that ... this is his jurisdiction ...

My house is silent at the moment .. where it shouldnt be ... I have a couple chores to do .. namely laundry ... and if I were to be a highly functioning person .. I would be running the machines while running this one ... so it's best that I figure out my priorities ...

Here .. I have another story ...

Just kidding .. later gaters.
