A BIG THANK YOU TO LIVEY!!!!!!!!!
The presents just keep coming! Yesterday I go out to get the mail and there is a package, it's from Livey and it's filled with acorns! Waaahooooooo!
To some it may not be a big deal, but it is to me. I don't have big beautiful oak trees to collect the acorns from. They are great for prosperity spells and they also make great decorations. I'm even going to try and plant a few in some pots to see if I can get them to grow.
Thank you soooooooooo much Livey!

Spent the afternoon walking around Laguna. We took the dogs and they played on the beach. I had to work my night job, so we kept it short. When I got home I found a lovely boquet of my favorite color roses, purple ones. Lissie had them sent to me. And when I got home from work, there was yet another present. This one was from Venus. She's living in AZ now, but sent it home with her dad when he came to visit. She got me the most awesome crystal! It is larger than my hand! I have it sitting next to my rose quartz candle holder. Oh and Babs came in to work with a cake SHE baked. I've known her 15 years and I've never had her cook me anything. LOL! The cake was moisty, yummy and loaded with vodka.
All in all, it was a nice birthday, thank you all for my birthday wishes!

Okay, I've just got my two disposable cameras developed. So I shall bombard you barflies with pics from them. Goddamn was I drunk at my party! The other pics are from when we "house/dog sat" for my friend Linda.

Between the flowers and my candles, my house smells wonderful. I just finished putting the shot glasses Aussie got me with the irish rock glasses Spaz sent me. Believe it or not barflies, I still have not finished the jack that came with those glasses.
I am going to have to rethink the capacity of my relationship with my candle lady. She made a nasty remark about one of my guests that I'm sure every one heard and later when she got even more drunk, she turned the venom on me. I know her husband was embarassed and carted her out of the party shortly after that. I don't know if she even remembers the remarks that she made, but I know they have been bugging me all weekend. I'm doing my best to shake them off and just consider the sorce.
Steve cannot order the new puter for me fast enough. I can't blog hop or read comments half the time. If I do, soon as I'm done the damn puter crashes. Something that is suppose to relax me has now turned into a sorce of aggrivation.
Well it is time for me to get the love of my life. Later barflies.

Ugh, am I whipped!
Last night's soriee went well, I believe everyone had a nice time. It was great to see everyone. It was a little over whelming, I'm used to just having small parties at my place I had about 20 people or better. Pudd'n went to grandma land for the night, so Steve was able to relax and socialize at the party. Dru looked awesome, she's dropped 100 lbs now, Lili looked sexay as ever and she got the ever slimming Athena a darling Jack Skelington zip up sweat shirt. Poor Aussie was beat, the plane ride and the time change is murder. I saved some Tim Tam cookies she sent me and put them out last night so she'd have a little something from home to munch on. She also made me try the vegimite that she had sent too, it's NOT much cup of tea. L. Debra had on the most darling clothes as usual, I wish I had her figure. I'd be buying a lot more stuff from her clothing store if I did! Babs brought me a huge boquet of flowers, my whole house smells so nice now because of them.
I wish I could of been able to sit down and chat more with my guests. The outside tables were full, so I ended up sitting inside. It was a whirl wind evening to say the least.

The eagle.........errrrrrrrr I mean the Aussie has landed. If you hear about an earthquake hitting Calif., don't be alarmed. It's just Aussie and Athena, they have not seen each other for a veeeeerrrrrrrrrry long time. Aussie is coming here to live. We are so excited for these two! :)
Well I've really done it, tweaked my back but good. Looks like I'll have to drink a few more to help kill the pain.
I am so excited for tomorrow. It will be so nice to see everyone. There will be witches and waitress', family and friends that are like family. Straight and gay couples, vegitarians and carnivours. I am happy to have such an eclectic group of friends. The "big stuff" is done, the back breaking work to get the house clean and in order. Now it's just the little shit that needs to be done. I think that that is worse than the big things to do. My mother in law is making the main dishes and I'm getting some from where I work. Several friends are bringing appitizers. The only thing that would make the day more complete is if Spaz & Lissie could be here.

Well it is not the new yahell that is making my puter putt out. I uninstalled it and went to play on the net. The net kept crashing and I kept from trying to put my fist through the monitor. So I reinstalled yahell.
The fair was awesome as usual. We pigged out until we burst. I'm so bloated right now from all the sodium and junk food, it's not funny!

A BLESSED MABON TO YOU ALL...........
Today is the 2nd harvest festival. I like to call it "the witches thanksgiving". It is also the day of equal darkness and light. I'll be celebrating at the Pomna Fair grounds. Not your traditional way, but I'll be giving thanks and loading up on fresh ground corn for the year.
MMMMMMMMm warm fresh corn bread , corn cakes and hush puppies!

DON'T FUCK WITH A DRUNK WITCH ON A WANING MOON......
My husband better get his cute little Italian ass on the phone and get me a new goddamn computer. I down loaded the new yahell i.m shit last night and now I'm lucky to be on this damn thing longer than 2 minutes. It keeps shutting down. Just like a vibrator with low batteries, my puter is not giving it out what it should.
I cleaned the carpets tonight. Well at least I got the first layer of dirt off. I have not cleaned them in a few years. Between the behavioral vomiting and puppy piddles, why bother right? Ugh, I need new carpet, no........ I need pergo flooring now. Fuck carpets!
They look a little better, the vomit stains not so pronounced, but still.......... I'd like not be be embarassed when company comes over.

I went to the post office today to pick up my b'day gift from Spaz. For those Barflies that are not in the know, Spaz is one of my soul mates. We've known each other for at least 25 years now. There is a new and DANGEROUS store that has opened up less than a 1/4 mile from her home. It is an Irish store, nay Barflies.......a HUGE Irish store filled with imported goodies. What store will Maeve have to avoid with a visa next time she goes home?
The Twisted Shamrock barflies......*shuddering with delight*
She got me the most awe inspireing hand crafted box. It is Connameara ponies and Celtic knots all over and what shall I put in the box you ask barflies? I'm glad you asked. Spaz wrote a toast and I will keep it in that box. To go with the toast, she sent me 4 rock glasses with some of my favorite Irish sayings on them. My absolute fav? "May ye be in heaven a full half hour before the devil knows ye dead".
Yes, I will be drinking out of that glass this sat. Oh, and the toast? here it is:
"We could not be there (lissie and spaz) in body, but most definitly in spirit. Pour these glasses with whiskey: One for Maeve, one for Lissie, one for Spaz and one for Bables!
Here's to the Bitches of Eastwick! Long may their sassy asses live!"
Of course since Spaz & Lissie can't be here, Babs and I will have to drink their share........bummer! LOL

LIVEY, GET THE HOLE READY...................
Let me set the scene for you barflies.....hub on treadmill flipping through stations trying to find something to watch.
Steve: Oh hey look! Detroit is plaing tonight (the little running banner on a station has given him this information).
but I can't find it on the guide.
Me: well, it is because YOU haven't bought the hockey package yet?!
(he works for the damn cable co after all!).
Oh yes barflies, do not tell Maeve a game is on and she can't watch it. I missed last year due to the fucking union. I NEED my Shanny fix.

"WICKED WITCH" Bath products..........
What do you think of that name?
I was going through my books and thinking up all sorts of goodies to put in my soaps & bath salts. I like to make these things up for friends and more than one has raved at how wonderful they think these things are. My mom has been using only soap that I make for the past 2 years now.
As I was continplating turning a hobby in to something money making (like Guyk did), I pulled a card from my tarot deck. It was the page of pents and at the same time my "specially charged" wind chime went off. I have several wind chimes and ONLY the one that is charged for ritual purposes went off.
Now how the hell do I turn this hobby in to some sort of buisness?

I got a call from the sports bar for an interview yesterday. Turns out it's a sports bar AND a night club. Shifts end at 1 or 2 am. Exqueeze me? Did you say 1 and 2 am? Um, I don't think so! I'm lucky enough to stay up past 10 pm!!! Kerry started laughing and saying just that when I had told her about it. While I was getting ready for said interview, Amy (my regualar customer) called me. She was buzzing in Ruben's ear how he has to hire me at CC. I keep explaining to her they have no openings at this time, but that does not stop her. Bless her heart, she's so cute. Any way, Ruben told Amy to tell me to stop by the new CC that they are building and fill out application there. So since it was literally right down the street, I did just that. The new manager RJ was just finishing up with an interview and said he'd be happy to see me. They want full time people, I want part time. So we'll see what happens. Ugh!

I have the solution to prevent hijackings and get our airline industry back on its feet at the same time. Replace all female flight attendants with good lookin' strippers. What the hell? The attendants have gotten old and haggard looking. They don't even serve food anymore, so what's the loss? The strippers would double, triple, perhaps quadruple the alcohol consumption and get a "party atmosphere" going in the cabin. Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of seeing naked women. And, of course,every heterosexual businessman in this country would start flying again hoping to see naked women.
Hijackings would come to a screeching halt and the airline industry would see record revenue. Why the hell didn't Bush think of this?
Why do I still have to do everything myself?

Kids say the darndest things...........
I hopped over to "mom is nutz" and had a good laugh. Regular ed kids crack me up. The shit they come up with is truly amuzing.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. If my son EVER starts talking, I am in DEEP, DEEP shit.
He will have a vocabualary that will make a salior blush and other things I just don't want to think about right now. One of his teachers used to tease me about sending home a note that would say "Mrs. Daley, you son Pudd'n has said a few "colorful" words today. we have NO idea where he had learned them."
Yeah, I'm in deeeeeeeeeep doody.........

A total waste of make up.
Slappy is still on vacation, so his son "mini me" is still there and taking MY tables! I had ONE motherfucking table tonight! At this rate, I may as well go work for some fast food joint, I'll make more Goddamn money! I'm ready to go back to Tarjaye and work. And I hear that mini me #2 is suppose to start next week (slappy's daughter). Where the fuck does he plan on putting her? Its a small damn place 3 people MAX is what you need. I will put out more applications on thursday. I'm freaking over money right now. Since I do not work for the school district in Aug (school is OBVIOUSLY out) I do not get a pay check in Sept. That is 500-700 I'm not getting! I have been making SHIT for money since Slappy #2 has taken my station from me. Stressed? Who me? FUC KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK.

Well I went and put out a few more applications. My first stop was at a sports bar. I had an orgasm when I saw the floor to ceiling big screen t.v. Hockey season is almost here and if I don't get the job there, I'm going to make sure I go in one night to watch a game. My second stop was to another Italian joint. They are suppose to call to set up an interview on Thursday, so we'll see.
Pudd'n has adjusted to his new class really well. He will actually go in to his old class room to say hi to the teachers too. I'm so ready for bed right now......

Shit, Piss, Fuck and DAMN!
Turns out that it IS the computer and not the camera. My piece of shit computer is old an not compatable with the new digital camera. I down loaded the soft wear on to Pudd'ns puter. Everything worked fine and pictures came up. Problem now? Pudd'ns puter does not have internet access! His computer is just for games, so we did not bother to get internet access on it. FUCK!

The Burning question............
I've had several friends ask me if I would marry Steve again if I had a choice. I'm going to have to go with a yes here. Please don't die of shock girls.......lol!
Yeah, he was pretty crappy to start out with, but that was my own fault for letting him get away with it. He no longer acts in that manner (thanks to Babs and her "sentance")and he's a damn good father. He's always been there when there was a family crisis, mine or his.
Love is definitly blind and marriage is a real eye opener.

I redeemed my "points" with my visa card and got a digital camera. I followed the directions on how to put the pictures to the computer. Well I think my damn puter is too old.

My friend Maggie became a grandma on the 7th to two adorable twin boys. The boys were born 32 weeks early and both weigh in at just over 3 lbs.
If you can light a candle or say a prayer that the boys will flourish to good health, it would be much appriciated. Also send some strength to the parents. It has to be hard to see your babies all hooked up to monitors and stuff like that.

I've heard that your dreams have meanings. That every dream has a message for you, if you just pay attension. Well I'm trying to figure out the latest of the weird ass dreams that I've been having lately and what the fuck is it trying to say?
Last night I had a dream that I was going to give one of my kidneys to an ailing little girl. Everything was set up, we were ready to go and at the last minute, it was canceled. No one would tell me why either.
The rest of the dream was so bizzare, I can't piece it together. Just bits and fragments come to me. Like this group of guys that did not like a person that was going to get some blood transfusion, they kept pissing in the blood supply that was going to the person. Yeah, weird huh?

Last nights ritual was beautiful as always. L.Deb and K. used the Egyptian pantheon as the theme. I made some mulled cider (left the rum out) to bring for the festivites afterwards. I should of made two bottles, it was gone in a flash. I was pissed though, I ran out of whole cloves and I only had crushed ones. I hope it tasted ok, I didn't even get to try it.
Today is Pudd'ns first day of school in his new class room. It is SO nice not having to drive all the way to Irivne any more, expecailly with gas over $3 now. Pudd'n was kind enough to get up at 3:30 today. Needless to say, I'm dragging butt.
Here's the recipe for Mulled Cider if you would like to make some for Mabon or any other fall festivity you may have planned.
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp whole all spice
1 tsp whole cloves
1/4 tsp salt
3 cinnamon sticks
2 qts apple CIDER (NOT juice)
Combine all ingriedents into a sauce pan. Bring to boil, cover, lower heat and simmer for 20 min. Can be served with a generous amount of rum in your cup.

We took the dogs for a walk the other day and we saw a cab parked on the street. The body was ok, but the tires were balder than Mr. Clean's head. It made me think back a few years ago when I was in Vegas. It was the Stanley cup play offs and I wanted to watch it on a nice big screen tv. Babs ditched me for a nap, but Spaz and Melissa said they were game. Spaz had pulled up some info on the Imperial Palace that was suppose to have "hockey night", so off we went. We walk in and can tell immediatly, this was not going to fly. The hockey night parties were over because it was the play offs. Um.......it's STILL hockey! So we turn right back around and leave. The porter hails us a cab and as this thing pulls forward, I'm getting nervous. The body of the car had many dents, it was dirty and the muffler was loud. A curseory glance inside makes me shudder........
I'm wearing my Detroit Redwings jersey with my boy Shanny's number on it. The cabby glances at me and in a thick Russian accent says:
"Don't you like my commrades?"
And like a bat out of hell, he takes off. This guy took every back street and even through a construction site to get us to the ESPN Zone to watch the game. All the while we are talking about the Russian players for Detroit. Then the cabbie starts saying how Federov had married a WHHHHHOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRR" (Ah hell, you had to be there to get the full flavor of the word "whore" with a thick Russian accent). Over and over, he kept saying how Ana was a whore and how could Federov marry her. She was blonde and skinny........Mr. Russian cabbie liked his women with dark hair and curves (as he eyeballs me in the rear view mirror). All the while Spaz & Melissa are laughing like hyenas. We get to the ESPN Zone with time to spare. It was the most memorable ride I've ever had (in a car that is).

There just not enough hours in the day it seems..........
I have been non stop all day between two jobs, grocery shopping and swimming with pudd'n in the pool. Fuck! Plus I had to go to Tarjaye to get some needed things. Things like those pretty curtains my mom said she'd buy me! Whoooohooooo! My place is coming together! I got a check from my dad today for my b'day. I was hoping to buy that DKNY perfume I liked or maybe the paint to do my kitchen. But since I had only four damn tables all night, looks like that $$$ is going for groceries or gas. Getting ALL excited for my party. I'll finally get to see Lili and Aussie will be out here.
Ugh, I think I'll go crawl in to bed.....

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Today we lugged our stuff down to the beach. Linda returns from Hawaii today, so no beer tap........um I mean pool side lounging for us. It was early morning and we go to a semi private beach. I noticed this little boy 4 years, 5 at the MOST playing by the shore. Then I notice where his father is......out SURFING. It's a rough surf and it's breaking pretty close to shore, so the father isn't out as far as you usually go. But still, one good wave and that kid could of gotten sucked out. Or better yet, what if some one came up and snatched that kid? By the time the father paddles out of the water, the kid is gone.
Are we just being over protective? The little boy was by himself for a good 40 minutes before grandma (?) and some little girl show up to take charge of him.
The weather for the beach really sucked. In land, it's gorgeous, on the beach there was fog and the water was fucking cold. We were only there for an hour. Had it been warmer, I know we would of been there for a few hours.
I think I'll go take a nap.

I have found my Mecca and it is in Linda's back yard............
Yes Barflies, I have found heaven on earth. Linda's back yard has a pool, jacuzzi, waterfall in to the pool and a slide that is built into the waterfall. It has a bar area with Viking grill/rotisser (sp?), sink and THREE taps! Two have beer and one has margarita mix. We stayed and played for three hours yesterday. It was a lot of fun.
In the den they have an awesome big screen t.v. and three leather arm chairs in front for viewing, this of course gave me evil thoughts. I sent Linda the following text messages:
"Where is your porn?"
"Eh, never mind. Sorry about the "love stains"
She texted me back saying I was a "sickko". Yeah and?
By the time the girls got to my casa, Steve and I were thourally whipped. But it was fun non the less hanging out and battling the flies for our dinner. Another reason why I can't wait for winter, no dam flies when we dine on the patio! It was great to see the girls. Babs amused us to no living end with her stretch pants. Dru has dropped even more weight, so has Athena.
Looking forward to my soiree on the 24th. I've already got the menu ready and have started to squirrell away the non perishables. I like to find things on sale and stock up on them.
Well, it's time for another day at the beer tap........um, I mean pool.

Tomorrow Babs, Dru and Athena are coming by for libations and Mexican food. Too bad Lili the BEOTCH can't make it. Bitch is actually going to make us wait until the 24th to see her. Oh well, she's worth the wait.
Looking forward to hanging out with my men (and Babs) at Linda's place. It will be nice to actually cook pudd'n some food and just hang out. I'm going to have to pick up a water camera, I know there are going to be great photo ops with that slide they have! She's got a big screen tv too, I wonder if she has any porn? LOL!
I was wishing I could have packed my flask by 3rd period. After tutorial with fucking CHEERLEADERS squaking away like a bunch of hens, my nerves were frayed. They are nice kids and all......but Goddamn! They never shut up and they eat like locust! As much as I THOUGHT I wanted a girl, I'm finding boys are MUCH easier to raise. Give me 5 more boys over one girl any day! LOL. It is definitly Friday and my P3 class was all sorts of jacked up on crack or something. They wouldn't shut up and had a hard time settleing down. It took the threat of extra homework over the weekend to settle them. I'm glad they did, I had no fucking clue as to what I would of done for punishment. One new kid thought I was joking when I said "no talking during the test or I'll throw your paper away". He'll learn REAL quick Ms. Maeve don't put up with shit. Hell, Linda puts up with even less. That's why I like working with her. She doesn't put up with kid's crap and she's a damn fine teacher. If all my teachers were like her in high school, I would of learned something.

I'm almost afraid to turn on the news..........
It makes me so sad to see all the distruction and the stupid people stealing things they DON'T need (t.v, jewlery, electronics). Hearing about our troops getting shot at FOR TRYING TO HELP. Kilabe, who is in my blog roll and a father of three is over there right now trying to help people. I hope to God/dess no one is shooting at him. Yeah, it's his job, but damn! He's there to HELP.
On the happier side, I've also seen little snippets of how people are gathering up donations and drop off sites for donations. My prayers go out to everyone right now.
