dumb doper

most of you know ive been back at work. well, the office im at is in wasco, and every day i drive by this house on my way in (its not too far from the office, actually). there is always random things outside, old gas pumps, signs, car parts, etc., and lately there have been some handmade signs about dopers. there was a noose put up a couple of months ago with a wooden plaque on it that reads 'dopers' (see second photo) and a sign that read something like 'save a family, save a baby, save a grandma. string up a doper.' anyway, this week that one was gone and this one was in its place:

its kind of hard to read, but goes as follows:

you may be a dumb doper if

1 you have no teeth

2. you have no money

3. baby's in microwave

4. sold wic cheese

5. looking for job

6. no diploma

7. waiting for mothers day (i thought that couldnt be it, but i checked and sure enough, thats what it says)

8. slapped grandma

9. stole mom's purse

10. still riding a bike

11. set girlfriend on fire

and the noose is still up, thank heavens.

meme for youyou

Here are the rules:
- Each player starts with eight random facts about themselves.
- Those who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight facts and post these rules.
- At the end of the post, choose some people to get tagged and list their names.

1. i was on the math team in 5th grade. i cannot add 5 and 7 in my head, but i did alright.

2. in fourth grade i made the mission san antonio de padua out of wood. it was massive. we went to visit the mission so that i could count each archway and take some measurements. thats when i learned to use the following: band saw, coping saw, drill press, scroll saw, hacksaw, wood glue.

3. i have 8 tattoos. hopefully soon to be 9.

4. vanilla wafers are one of my favorite foods. i could eat them all day long for a lot of days in a row.

5. i have been thinking about that georgia would be for halloween since before she was born. its a very important day, you know, and a childs first halloween sets the stage for all future halloweens.

6. if i could live anywhere and afford it, i would live in carmel, california.

7. i think starbucks coffee is lame, but they have great iced tea.

8. i graduated from mortuary school with the highest award in restorative art. and the other day i got to show why.

i dont really need to tag anyone since everyone already has been, but i tag dad, jaydene, rh (if she ever posts again), and henry.

discovery channel

i really love this type of programming. i hope that i remember to put the different ones put out by the discovery channel on my (or georgias if mines too full) christmas list. and while i am on the subject, i would like one of these (mom and dad). actually, i am not set on that camcorder, if anyone has helpful tips on selecting one, let me know.

and today i got some information in the mail about medela breast pumps. i am going to start renting them from my house (i think). i also am looking into la leche league stuff and considering becoming a leader.

i have no sitter any longer. it sucks because i have to wait for georgias nap to get work done, and i get irritated at her for it (isnt that awful), i dont enjoy receptionist work (i am the worst typist ewer, haha, ever), the drive to wasco sucks (g sleeps the whole time and it screws up her napping), and the entire day i wonder why we have to live in such an expensive house. its nice to not have a sitter because i dont have to pay anyone and i can use the extra cash (were a bit behind on the bills), not to mention that the company needs me, but i wish there was some solution. it just sucks.

ear candling

i have an awful sinus infection. my mom asked me if i had ever heard of ear candling, and i said that i hadnt. well, she has a friend that does it, and its supposed to clean out the ears as well as the sinuses behind the ears. so i went to woodys aunt carolyns house this evening because she does ear candling. i will attempt to describe it: there are these hollow candles that are about an inch in diameter. they are made with a loose-knit cloth (like cheesecloth but looser) that is covered in wax and then (i imagine) wound around a one inch dowel or something. the end that goes in your ear comes together like a cone. anyway, you light the end that does not go in your ear on fire and place the ear end in your ear while lying down. the fire i guess creates negative pressure and all the gunk comes out of the ear canal and sinus. here are some photos:
