5 Wierd Things about me

Ugh, I've been tagged....

5 Weird Things

I've been tagged by TaniaJPS for a rousing game of blog tag.

so here are the rules to play blogtag:

* List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets.
* Tag 5 friends and list them.
* Those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people.
* Don't forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!

here are my 5 weird things ::

1. I am in love with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor (Dr. Who)
2. I hate feet.
3. I'm a trekkie
I like Wierd Al Yankovich and am excited his new CD is out!
5. I work on 3 computers at once.

here are the 5 lucky bloggers I'm tagging ::


You may not see me for a few years...

Ok, so I've had it! I can't find a darn thing on any of my computers without a 10 min search. I've got 3 computers that I use on a daily basis. Technically, each one has its own purpose (1 design, 1 gaming, and my laptop)... but things have become rather, um, meshed together is a nice way of saying it. Nothing is where it is supposed to be, many things are in 15 different spots - ugh.

So, after seeing a few threads on DST about organization and Gina Miller's blog showing off her organization system, I've decided it's time to bite the bullet... it may take a few years and I'm sure I'll give up before I'm done... but today I'll try. I should have taken a 'before' screenshot of my laptop desktop before starting this since this the puter I'm starting with.... Oh well, here it is after I've already been moving/deleting/etc this morning. See all those empty spaces? Every single space on there had an icon in it before I started... let's see how far I get today.

Oh yeah, I gotta go get the munchkin ready for school and fix him some breakfast before I can get back to it.... see ya later and HEY! le-go my eggo!

Oscraps is back up!

and, um, has been since last Friday. Everything is working great, we lost nothing and I did a ton of brainstorming during my 15+ hours in the car alone last week! So, I have plans now... lot's and lot's of plans... maybe someday I'll actually do them too.

PS~ Thank you miss Holly McCaig for the reminder that perhaps I should blog more frequently... especially on important topics like this LOL!!!


Hello. My name is Vicki and I am a bad blogger.

Do NOT attempt this yourself...

Leave it to the professionals! OY!

Ok, I just got Holly McCaig's Purdy Pics actions and WOW! what a difference they make. I tried to edit this picture myself and while it looked ok, it really didn't look 'GOOD' and it printed so nasty - bleh. So, I got Holly's actions and started playing around with them this morning and voila - easy, peasy, super quick and prints just lovely!

Check out the difference!

And here is my layout... I used my Some Like it Hot papers and LazerCutz {one} for the embellishment (used the striped paper from Some Like it Hot as the overlay on the embellie!).

I saw the sun rise over dallas - oh yeah, the Oscraps Server is DOWN...

Hi y'all.

Bad news. The oscraps server is down. It went down yesterday afternoon around 5 pm CST. I spent several hours on the phone with tech support (or rather on hold for tech support - grrrrr) and they were unable to get it back up. I got up at 3:45 am and hit the road at 4:15 am to drive down to Dallas to pick it up and bring it back here for my hubby to try to fix. I just got home so I don't know what's wrong with it yet.

I'll keep you posted...

Wow. Yeah. There's 88 min. of my life I'll never get back...

So, um, yeah, since we've all got mono - yeah, yeah, the kissing disease... I know. Too bad we didn't get it the 'fun' way. We got from drinking after each other ---> my 6 year old son got it from his 6 year old girlfriend - hopefully from drinking after her as well. I'd hate to think they were making out at 6! LOL. Ya know, come to think of it, the only one who probably did get this the "fun" way is Anthony, cuz he never drinks after Alyx but he does kiss me - gosh, sorry babe!

Anywho... back to the original reason for this post... I've been renting movies so I can just sit in front of the TV and veg. So, I rented Friends with Money with Jennifer Aniston and Joan Cusack. I guess I expected a comedy, but, uh, nope... not funny. Really, it's rather boring and depressing. Teach me to judge a DVD by its cover - really -they're laughing on the cover! Oh bah... I'm not going to waste any more time on this movie, you can go check it out for yourself if you are so inclined and have a bit of time to throw away...

Holy Dust and Debris Batgirl!

So, anyone wanna come visit us? You'll breathe better in our home if you do!

We had a our vents cleaned the other day. Can I just say... Oh My Freaking Ghoulish Nightmare the crap that came out of there! No wonder we all live with constant drippy noses. These vents had never been cleaned in almost 20 years. The guys pulled BUILDER DEBRIS (read: freaking trash!) out of the vents. Lazy Bastage builders. We're talking a full gallon of dust, dirt and debris came out of the vents.

Can I get a collective - UGH!

So, anyway, we're breathing better now :)
