I’m going to be narcissistic today…

Because its my blog and I can…  So deal with it 😉

Still sick, not as sick as I was before so that’s an improvement I suppose… I’ve gone from having a hardcore runny nose to this awesome cough.  I LOVE when that happens!  If anything its a great excuse to take some time for me and me alone.  Something I haven’t really had since Jason died.  Except my damn cell phone is going insane!  All of a sudden I’m miss popular today and truthfully its rather irritating.  There was only one person that I heard from that I actually *wanted* to hear from which was totally random because this person happened to cross my mind and then a half hour later they texted me earlier today.  Kinda creepy in a not so bad way.  Strange when someone’s in your head like that…  I suggest they get out while they still can, my mind tends to be a dirty, messy place on occasion 😉

Anyway in spite of being sick, I had a photo appointment that I had to commit to and here’s the end result:  All of which are totally un-edited as well…  I’m allowed to have my narcissistic moments right? Of course I am!

Concerts FTW!


So last weekend and parts of this week have been insanely busy!  I had consigned myself to *not* going to the Metallica concert since no one else I knew was going and tickets were seemingly impossible to obtain and expensive, or so I thought…  Friday night I was at a benefit concert for my friends rescue.  That’s when the deafness started, it was a heavy metal/punk indie show that consisted of several bands most of which were really good.  Needless to say I was impressed with the quality of some of the music.

Then Saturday I  helped deliver a wedding cake, trekked around the F1 track and went to a thank you BBQ @ Jackie’s house with Jen & Clint which was nice.  I also got a new kitty, his name was tou-tou but has since been changed to Xavier and he’s quite the handful but seems to be a happy kitty overall.

My darling Heddy aka Ms. Kitler & memy new kittyWedding cake! The Saturday when I got home from Beaconsfield I get a call from Krystal freaking out because she found a contact scalper for metallica tickets for $150.00 YAY!  We had AMAZING seats!  We were 3rd row from the floor which was really like having front row tickets because the first 2 rows in front of us were blocked off since we were in front of the sound stage.  Metallica KILLED IT!  They were AMAZING!  I have been DYING to go to one of their shows forever and I finally got to see them live!  Since the tickets were only $50.00 more then retail and I scored mine 6 hours before showtime it was a pretty sweet deal!

my ticket!



So after Metallica Sunday night I was pretty much deaf & dead tired!  The show started at 7:00pm right on time and Metallica hit the stage at 9:15 & rocked it out til 11:15 and played a few songs from their new album and of course all their awesome old songs too!

Then on Monday I recovered from Metallica and on Tuesday night we went to see Manson.  Manson was sick and I think that affected the show overall.  Kudos to him for sticking it out and putting on the show in the first place but I have to say I was a tad dissapointed.  Granted I’m not a huge Manson fan but we were on the floor for this one and there was long pauses between sets and the opening show die mannequin wasn’t that great either…  Overall Manson was a whole lot of flash with some good tunes and overall put on a decent show.  I got sucked into the mosh pit in the front and made it to the front but for the most part I was about 6 people deep from the front of the stage.   I’ll tell you, it was damn hard to get decent shots when your up to your armpits in people thrashing around and your camera is being pissy lol.PC060313

I <3 HSV-1...

OK actually no I don’t as a matter of fact its a pain in my ass!  OK herpes (simplex one) sounds a million times worse then it could be as in HSV-2 (genital herpes) If your really feeling up to viewing some images, well those can be found here.

Why on earth am I talking about herpes for?  Simple, because I have HSV-1 *(as does most of the population) which is nothing more then a cold sore that I didn’t even know that I had until my student dentist pointed it out.  Because I went to start my dental treatment at McGill today, took the afternoon off of work and lo and behold I couldn’t GET ANY WORK DONE!  Thankfully this ISN’T a regular occurrence, I think the last time I had one was a few years ago.   So now I have to call the poor guy back when its gone urgh!  Because the little bastard can spread like wildfire and while I am anything BUT impressed with it taking up residence on my face its not very visible.  I guess its a good thing I don’t go running around kissing people or giving out blow jobs eh?  I’ll tell you though, great way to turn guys off apparently!  Ahem thanks…  That was nothing short of awesome as in someone falling off the face of the planet the minute I told them.  Hey could be worse, I could have confessed that I had genital herpes which I am pretty damn thankful that I DON’T YAY negative blood tests!

Speaking of blow jobs…  Someone e-mailed this to me this morning and while I don’t see how it has anything to do with the actual product at hand its the innuendo that made me laugh to a certain degree…  Especially the commentary about the video itself.  Then of course there’s this one too which is more tasteful but still slightly inappropriate . One needs to wonder if that company was doing an ad campaign for pearl necklaces O.o!  Yeah I went there…  As for what I happen to think is flat out wrong oddly enough is this.  That’s likely because I dislike fast food but I especially hate burger king (and small children)!  Here’s an interesting twist on the gender role of things…  Sometimes I do love the internet! 😉

More reasons I love the internet (goes to show you my friends who send me this stuff have FAR too much time on their hands):
Breastfeeding dolls (I totally had a WTF moment) but the fox commentary is amusing.
My ALL TIME favorite condom commercial EVER! Which was banned, why I’ll never know because it reins supreme in hilarity!
Learn English?

More of course can be found here (thanks Ben)
Offensive?  Maybe to some, thoughts?
OK so I happen to think that Kayne West is an EPIC douchetard… Apparently I’m not the only one! Micheal sent these to me so of course I feel the need to pass it on 😉 How many people can relate to this

OK so enough with the random nonsense.   At least for the time being…
In other news, work is still mega fucking slow so I’m either a looking for a new job that pays more/gives me more hours *or* finding some BS part time job until things pick up at my work. Because I’m going to start accumulating some hardcore debt if this keeps up…
One thing I noticed was most ad’s that were in conjunction with my line of work, they always referred to the person they were looking for as a male IE: Him, He and so on. WTF? Sexist much holy fuck! I’m not some radical feminist or something but come on! I’ve been in this industry since I was 14, its woman like me who stuck it out amongst the gender BS who helped pave the way for woman Chefs today thank you very much!

On a final note its almost Friday:
