What's wrong with this picture?

A place where I can bitch about life's daily hiccups and keep my sanity, without annoying everyone around me. Fair enough?

Name:
Location: The armpit of Canada, Canada

I'm a 31 year old woman who is fed up with the way things are progressing in the world. I have opinions on everything, and I'm not afraid to voice them. I'm old, I'm jaded, so sue me...

Poor Rabbit...

So, for those of you that know me, or rather, us, I guess we can come clean and spill the beans. Yes, we are going to be parents for the first time as of September. How the hell did that happen?
So far we've really only told immediate family, so consider yourselves priveledged. I'll keep you posted with updates as they come in, but sufficed to say, pregnancy SUCKS! Oh yeah, it's a miracle and everything, I just wish the miracle didn't involve me puking my guts out on a daily basis. Fuck, I wish there was some magic pill that guys could take so they would have even the slightest inkling of what it's like. Bleh...
I must say though, my husband is the most wonderful man in the world, he takes very good care of me, and puts up with all the constant whining. The dog is really confused, she KNOWS something's going on, she just doesn't know what. Every opportunity she gets, she trys to do backflips off my tummy. Feels great.
By the way, again, for those of you that know us...what do you think of the name Achilles if it's a boy? :P

For anyone that didn't get the rabbit reference, look it up. Do you think I have all day to explain this shit?

Bear with me here...

Ok, so I've been fooling around with the backgrounds in my blog for a while, and have decided to change format again, as I royally screwed things up. Bear with me as I try out different settings, and then dick with them some more...ah, fuck it, I like this one, I'll just leave it. It appears that anything I change just gets over-ridden anyways...too bad, I was really diggin' the hot pink theme I had going on.
Anyway, on to better things, or not...such as the job factor in this GODFORSAKENCITY!!
What is it about this place that there's no frickin' jobs to be found in my husband's line of work!? I tell ya, despite the fact that we just found out about our soon-to-be bundle of joy, we're abouthisclose to calling it quits and heading back to the land of Opportunity.
For those of you that don't know, that's Calgary. I know I should be counting my blessings, and my dear Mother, God Bless her, says that we will be better off here. Not if we're jobless lady! Oh no, we had to move to Winnipeg and dwell under the illusion that things here are cheaper, and we could get out of debt. So far, I'm faced with the prospect of going on EI next month due to the family business not doing so hot, and the man is looking for a job as we speak. So much for things being better. Fuck. Next time I make a comment about how much I love my hometown, someone shoot me...better yet, give me the gun, I'll do it myself.

Rant over.

www.doggiesnot.com

OK, so as you all know, one of my pet peeves is horrid driving skills. One of my online friends sent me this website, and I have to say, it is perhaps one of the best sites I've ever seen pertaining to the complete morons out there that have drivers licences. www.doggiesnot.com, as you can see in the title. It's perfect. I honestly think that whomever complied the site must've lived in Winnipeg at some point in their live, because seriously, it's like looking in a mirror or something.
Now I'm not going to say that I'm the worlds best driver or anything, far from it. In fact, two days ago, I inadvertently cut someone off turning into the left lane, and they performed the requisite bird flipping and mad gesticulating that accompanies such an act. Can you blame me though? The lanes on said road are so frickin' wide, I thought that there were three. There's no rhyme nor reason to the roads here. Honestly.
That little screw-up pales in comparison to the shit I see on a daily basis. I have to ask myself sometimes if they received driving lessons from Stevie Wonder...
The best was in the parking lot of the liquor store three days ago. Yes, I've been reduced to drinking to take away the pain of having to drive in this God-forsaken town...anyhoo, I am backing out of a spot, things are going great, and I start to pull forward to leave, and Mr. Jackass in the Cutlass Sierra (or any other boat sized vehicle, you name one) decides that he can't be bothered waiting for me to go, and pulls around me. WTF!?!?! Hello, dickwad, I'm driving here!
ugh. Anyway, I shouldn't be surprised. There is a decided lack of courtesy happening here. I could DIE waiting to cross the street as a pedestrian. In Calgary, no problem. You want to cross at an uncontrolled spot, there's always someone willing to let you do so. Here? Fuggedaboudit! That would cut into race home from work time and possibly add several nanoseconds to the drive time. Can't have that happen. Just makes you want to start packing heat, I tell ya...one of these days...

Happy New Year, is it over yet?

So, I have been lax in keeping things up to date on here, but hey, cut me some slack. I've been working...at least that's what I keep telling people.
I am currently working for family, and I get to experience all the joy that goes along with it.
You know, when your Mom calls ten times a day and goes "are we busy?" That sort of thing. I love it. I also love working with the biggest baby that ever lived. He called me on Saturday, wanting to know why the hot water didn't work, and when I replied that it worked just fine, he hung up on me. WTF?! Hi, how old are you today, cause from the looks of things, grade two just about suits you!! Holy shit, suck it up princess, fix the damn thing, and RELAX! Honestly, what is it about some people that they have to get their panties in a bunch over the smallest things, things that in 100 years won't matter the slightest? Really, he's not a bad guy most of the time, except when it comes to getting his way, which is 95% of the time.

I had a nice surprise today though. I heard from a girl that I went to University with a few years back. She had heard that I got married this summer, and wanted to congratulate me. That and she wanted her video back...

This will be short and sweet today, just basically an update so people don't think I fell off the face of the Earth.

Happy New Year and all that junk...keep it real... or something like that.
