One Happy Hooker

Hah, I bet that title got your attention. Pervs.

 

I have come to the conclusion that I absolutely adore crochet, I love the random little projects I make, and now have gotten into amuragami, even though it’s just one pattern I’ve done twice (and now working on a third time), but I am starting a couple new ones for my daughter and my neighbor. I’ve done start blankets, ripple blankets, granny squares, the list just goes on. It’s something that I enjoy. It calms me down, and I love passing them on to friends and family and seeing their reactions. I figured I’d throw this out here, and attach a few of my projects that I love love love love.

I’m getting ready to start on my sisters blanket, with a pattern I received from a fellow blogger, and once I figure out how to attach her to this, I definitely will. It’s called a “wool eater”. And it’s an amazing pattern that I am anxious to get started on, and my sister is anxious to receive. Although, her “colors of choice” are going to require sunglasses, and I’ll probably be seeing weird colors for a while (all… neon… rainbow… wee!).

 

I’ll keep posted on the progress as I go, as I’m going to be a busy bee the next few weeks. My ex’s mom and sister are coming to visit the 27th for a week, and then we have 3 weeks with no munchkin since they are taking her back to South Dakota with them for our visitation agreement. So during the week they are here, there will be lots of hiking, snorkling, parasailing, and all that touristy stuff, and then the 3 weeks they are gone will be a lot more hiking, snorkling, and all that fun stuff that we normally can’t do while the kiddo is here.

Graduation was… well, graudation. It was super nice, just wish family would have been able to come, it would have made it much more worth it. I’ll have my bachelors in about a year, and then I have decided to move on with my masters, weeeeee¬†school loans >.<
Rayne is about done with T-ball, only one more session left, ūüė¶ It’s sad. but she is determined to get into soccer, and we are definitely getting her signed up with dance classes when she gets back from SD.

 

Did I also mention she turns FOUR on the 27th?¬† Sad, sad day… She’s growing up wayyyy too fast…

 

Anyways here’s some projects I’ve completed, graduation picture, and my daughters t-ball picture, since she’s friggin adorable.

Plot for world domination

Have you ever as a child wondering what it would be like to rule a country? To be a King, Queen, or President?

I know I have, and had actually drawn out a plan. It’s this completely off the wall plan, but I think it may actually work… (if I ever¬†had a never ending supply of money,¬†with every scientist known to man kind at my beck and call).

 

First, I would gather all necessities to life, such as crops, cattle, clothing, etc. and have them at my disposal so no one else could have them ( greedy huh?).

Second, my team of elite scientists would creat a nuclear device that would shut down all modern day electronics. This is to include vehicles, computers, electricy as a whole… right down to the very last AAA battery and watch. Once the rioting had subsided, I would hack into the system (although of course there would be only a small amount of time), and pronounce myself RULER OF THE WORLD!¬† People will file to my headquarters which are located world wide, and would be rationed food to last them 2 weeks, along with a dairy cow, 1 chicken per person in the family, and a goat. Every 2 weeks (upon schedual) the people would come for their next helping of rations. This would eliminate obesity world wide while ensuring that everyone still has enough food to survive efficiently until an order is produced where they can efficiently feed themselves. Although if starvation started to become an issue I would still ration out food to help. Then the overhaul would begin.

Jobs would be given out according to status. Some would be farmers, ranchers, shop keeps, peace¬†keepers¬†etc. Such as society was thousands of years ago. There will be no slavery though. Everyon has free will and are able to make changes to their status depending on if there was a position available at the time, just like any other job. The only fascility that will be provided electronics and such will be hospitals… Even I will not have electricity, and will work for my keep.

Money will be in the form of bartering. This will allow people to find their true talents, whether it be art, music, weaving, baking, what have you.¬† It will be a real talent, not those such as “playing video games”. Plus it will get children out and about so they get some fresh air, which I believe is really needed this day and age.

I do expect to be assasinated within the first few years, but needless to say, my team of elite scientists will have found a way to either clone me, or make me invincible. Either way, I will not be completely destroyed. Ever. 

 

This plan, I made up when I was about…. 16.¬† It does go into much farther detail about how I would enforce laws, rations, declare myself Ruler of the World, schooling and all that fun stuff, but It’s also 4am, and I should be in bed… key word: Should. Maybe I will continue this on later… but as of now this is just a random thought that passed through my head again and I figured I would jot it down right quick.

So, there you have it.

 

If you were given all the devices you needed, how would you plot world domination?

Let us discuss: WTF is going on with People?

Well, it appears I can’t sleep, and I’ve found a topic I want to discuss, so I’m going to throw this one out there. Has anyone noticed that death rates are up? And I don’t mean the natural death rates, I mean crazy murders, suicides, stupidity, etc.

I admit, I’m a momma’s girl, and I talk to my mom fairly regularly, along with a lot of people back in South Dakota, and I can honestly say almost every time I talk to someone there is something about some crazy random thing happening, or a murder, or kidnapping, etc. that is going on. For example, one of my mom’s customers were driving from Rapid City to Keystone to go to dinner, some guy was standing in the middle of the road, and SHOT THEIR CAR. For no reason, had no idea who these people where, just did it for shits and giggles. WHO DOES THAT?! Here’s another one, I do believe we have had 2 or 3 kidnappings since the new year of random people, who are later found murdered or something along the lines of a horrible tragedy, in a ditch, or a person who blew themselves up in an elevator, or some idiots hurting animals in the worst possible way (New Years some kids put fireworks in a dogs mouth), or crazy drivers crashing head on into vehicles or running people down, the list just goes on and on.

My question is; WHY. Why are all these people suddenly doing all these horrible things? Of course this happens daily, everywhere, but it seems to be noted more in the news. Is it because Newscasters are just bored or out of topics to discuss? Are people thinking that because “ZOMG WE ARE GONNA DIE IN DECEMBER” that they have nothing to worry about? What exactly is prompting all these people we would never expect to do such horrible things, to do unimaginable damage to so many people?

Now I know most have seen these people on television claiming to be “Doomsday Preppers”, which quite honestly I think is a very entertaining show, but do you believe these people? What are your honest opinions on this 2012 situation? Would you murder, steal, or rack up your credit cards thinking that there will be no consequence for your asininity since the world will supposedly end?¬† I just don’t understand… The world was going to end in 2000, the world was going to end in March, the world was¬†going to end in October, now the world will end this coming December. Do people honestly believe that because the Mayans didn’t “finish” the calendar, that means the world will be blown to smithereens?

Here’s my thoughts on the Mayan Calendar incident:
Some Mayan dude starts creating a calendar, and it is passed down from generation to generation, to keep this production going. One lucky Mayan has an extremely lazy, lets say son. This son puts around and just, forgets and decides that “oh gee, I forgot, Oh well, not my problem, lets just freak a shit ton of people out in the future”, or better yet, he probably just didn’t give a damn. Ya know, my view on this is probably ridiculous but I’m sure lazy people were around in Mayan times just as they are here.

Aside from this theory, Mayan’s didn’t actually incorporate a leap year, which we have every 4 years. Now, if we look at the Mayan Calendar, and insert a leap year every 4 years since the time the Calendar was created, we would be looking at doomsday being ohhhhh…. 8 months ago? Of course there is speculation of this, with all kinds of rumors, even some truths, about what they were looking at. But I want to see the actual documentation that the Myan’s supposedly predicted this doomsday happening. I want to SEE it. I want PROOF that this is what they said, not some loony Priest, Pastor, or Minister. Of course this is just my own personal opinion, but honestly, I’m just sick of hearing about it, and how people take advantage of something they have no idea is true or not.
Oy.

Little Piece of Paradise

With how often I blab about hating Hawaii, I have to admit it really is quite beautiful… I’ve decided to upload a few photos I’ve taken since I’ve been out here, Mind you most are of the kiddo, but eh! She’s cute so it’s okay. On a side note, I have actually begun enjoying living here. I gave up on being miserable, and have decided to just make the best of it, especially since we are going to be here the next 2 1/2 years. People always comment on how I’m so “lucky” to be living in paradise, or how I should be greatful to live in a place so wonderful, but I just can’t bring myself to actually feel like I’m living in paradise. I am a regular citizen, living in a city (mind you 2.3 miles from the beach which is a plus), struggling to make ends meet, and it doesn’t exactly help much that I have no car and my husband works clear over at Pearl Harbor. I’m gonna get there though. I have a few health issues to work through and then I will be back on the boat of getting into shape, playing more with the kiddo and the crazy pup, and of course making my way around the island and truely exploring the culture. I’ll get there. and I’ll make this my own personal paradise. Sooner or later ūüėČ

Life of the Navy Wife

April 6, 2011 · Filed under Uncategorized · Tagged , , , , , ,

My life. Ugh. End of story. It’s so stressful. I was married previously to a jerk who was in the Army, he was stationed in Germany and I was stuck behind in South Dakota, alone and pregnant, but I did fine. I believe it was the thought that I had done everything else in my life for so long all alone, and the fact that I knew he was truly nothing to me. He treated me like the scum under his boot, and caused me to go into premature labor. This second time around to being married in the military is so much harder. I married my best friend, a person I’ve known and cared about for years and am now stuck in a town 10x as big as Rapid City, and alone with only him as a friend. I’ve made 2 friends, and both are leaving to go to another post, and I’m afraid to make any new friends since we will be stationed some place new in November. It’s a hard concept to wrap my head around, that all friends I make I will sooner or later have to say goodbye. I left for my daughter’s visitation 2 weeks before he had to leave, he left 3 days before we arrived back home, and been gone ever since. The first time I spoke to him was last night via Facebook but for a very short period of time. They have been gone a total of 3 weeks now. My daughter is driving me crazy, and all I do is sit and think. Think about if he is okay, eating well, sleeping alright. Think about the next deployment and how much harder it is going to be. I was with him on his second deployment, and the third is coming up soon. There is that rumor he wont be going, will be staying behind to help things out here since we are leaving shortly after the deployment begins but it’s not for sure… My life has completely changed since we had eloped. I have no job and stay at home all day, when all I know is work. I’ve never been so bored of life.

I remember the last deployment I was driving to Sioux Falls to visit some friends, and I received a phone call that said I needed to pull over. They told me that there was a possibility that something happened to him, his dad had hung a flag in his yard and some officers went to his door. I panicked. It was a short lived rumor once I reached his brother. But it was one of the most horrifying moments in my life. It’s amazing what a simple rumor that friends will start will cause, the heartbreak I felt and the relief that washed over me when the rumor was dis banned.¬† It really does suck. It hurts and it’s terrifying. But I am a strong person, and I need to keep my mind open to possibilities of where our new life will take us.

This life is one of many things. Fantastic yet horrible, uplifting but so depressing, reassuring yet terrifying. It’s something that all military spouses must go through. The thought that their loved one may not come home, or may be leaving for long periods of time missing vital times in their child’s life. Or that their soldier would come home with such horrible post traumatic stress disorder that they must be hospitalized. Most people don’t realize that we the spouses go through a lot with our loved ones, that we are soldiers in our own way as well. We have to be strong and positive for our loved ones and be there whenever we are needed. We are bombarded with protesters, as if we have the right to say “no” to war, no to helping other countries regain their lives. Without our soldiers there may be no peace or rights for us as the people in this country. If soldiers had a choice, I can almost promise you they are there to help, and if given the opportunity to come back to their loved ones, they would do it in a heart beat.
