Money is what really makes the world go around

5:30 a.m. my alarm goes off. I turn it off. I lay there for a minute and then decide to get up. I turn on the coffee pot, turn on the t.v., and sit down on the couch. You will never believe what was on the news....Bernie Madoff and Michael Jackson.

I am so sick of hearing about Bernie Madoff and how he swindled everyone.

I get it.

He stole money from THOUSANDS of people.

But, when I hear all these people say, "I invested half a million dollars with him!" I think to myself, you invested a HALF OF A MILLION DOLLARS? You had a half of a million dollars and you wanted MORE? Greedy much? I mean seriously. If I had a half of a million dollars, I wouldn't put all my eggs in one freaking basket. I hear all these people say, "He stole my hope, my dreams, my soul!"


Your hope is in money?

Your dreams are in money?

Your soul is in MONEY?

If you weren't so gosh darn greedy, you might have your half of a million dollars right now. Haven't you read the bible or listened to the O'Jays song, For The Love Of Money? Maybe if you had, you wouldn't be in this situation. Yes, he was greedy too. Don't get me wrong. There are people that he stole from that didn't have a half of a million dollars and they were putting every dime they had into Madoff so that they could have a retirement. It was those that had a half a million dollars that were feeding his greed, so that he could take from those that didn't have as much.

Granted. I don't have a lot of money. But, I am perfectly happy.

All I have seen for the last 5 days is Michael Jackson.


He was a great entertainer, musician and he was a weirdo. WE ALL KNOW THIS! Why keep rehashing it?

You can't tell me that they aren't making money by keeping this going. The man died FIVE days ago. I think we've beat this to death! Let him rest in peace!

Death To The Shadow!

I am so flippin' frustrated!

I have had T-Mobile cell service for 5 years now. I actually have never had a bad experience as far as the service goes. However, the equipment I purchased in February has cause me nothing but frustration. I swear, I wanted to throw it through the freakin' wall! It reboots itself constantly and then when it comes back on it won't show the time or date. I have to take the battery out and put it back in at least 3 or 4 times before it does what it's supposed to do. It freezes up and then again, I have to take the battery out. Most of the time it won't diplay my contacts. I have never had so much trouble with a dadgum phone!

So, I called them the end of May and they asked me all these questions, blah blah blah. I get a new phone in 7 days. The replacement phone did THE SAME THING! So, I call them back this last tuesday and I spend 10 minutes on the phone while they ask me the same questions, blah blah blah. They send me ANOTHER replacement phone and what do you know.... it does THE SAME THING! I am so sick of this phone! I have to get it replaced one more time before they will give me another model. I am so irritated I could spit and I think I might!

Great Importance To The Small People

It's so funny to hear what is importance to kids.

Last week, I was driving to my mother's house with my son (6), his friend (7), and my daughter (5) to take them swimming. Her pool is clean and bigger than mine. They are talking in the backseat and then I hear my son say, "Nu uh! Katie you're lying!" Then I hear his friend say, "My dad took a string and yanked out my tooth!" Then I hear my son say, "This tooth right here is loose! It's going to come out any day now." So, I stop listening to them and start listening to the radio. Then again I hear my son say, "Katie! You're only 5! You're lying!" He's getting really upset. Then I say, "Hey, what's going on back there." Kaleb, my son says, "Katie said she has a loose tooth and I haven't even had a loose tooth! She's lying." I had to laugh. Here these kids are getting upset over who has a loose tooth and who doesn't.

Oh the days when that's all I had to worry about.

I'm just wondering. When did it become ok for the Federal Government to fire the CEO of a corporation? The government was just so convinced that GM needed a "bailout" and then they ended up going bankrupt anyway. So, then the government says you're fired? When did the U.S. government become a dictator? I thought we had freedom in the United States. I thought we were allowed to have our own property without government interference. I thought we were allowed to have our own businesses without government interference. I thought we were allowed to succeed or fail without government interference.

I hear that the opinion of Obama is that he is a socialist. I tend to agree. Here's why. He's always talking about spreading the wealth. I just want to know why it's ok for those who don't work, because they chose not to work, can recieve more help than I do. How is it fair that everyone should get the same salary, the same wages? How in the heck is that fair? I don't get it! So, maybe doesn't always get the best shot when they first start out in life, but they have the opportunity to be something great, if they work hard.

I don't really understand what it is that he is trying to accomplish. I'm sure he isn't going to want to share his Presidential salary with all the welfare recipients or even me. So, why do I have too?

No more 5 O'Clock shadow!!!

Ok, so let me start by saying, I am one of those girls that can shave my legs at like 7 am and then by 10 am I have 5 O'Clock shadow. I've just dealt with it. It's a little annoying, but I've dealt with it.

I have discovered something that has changed that! The Men's Shave Cream by Aveda is flippin' awesome! The salon I work at is an Aveda Concepts salon. Our rep came out and was telling some of us about the products. She told me about the men's shave cream and I thought yeah right. I took some home and tried it. OMG! It really does work! So, I am going to sell the heck out of this!

I am so amazed! Really.

Customer Service has become foreign!

I thought Customer Service meant companies were supposed to service their customers. Almost every company I have recently called with the exception of Tmobile, has had someone on the other end of the phone who speaks english as well as a 2 year old. Do they think that this is servicing their customers?

It is so annoying when you are trying to get answers and the person on the other end of the phone thinks they understand what you are saying, but in fact they don't. Then I definitely can not understand what in the hell they are saying. How hard is it to hire people who speak english? I mean really. Is english becoming like latin? Do people not speak english anymore? Here in Oklahoma, 90% of the population speaks english. It may be with an accent in some areas, but you can understand it!

One time I had a guy call about a payment that hadn't been made on a credit card of mine, because it was in dispute. This guy couldn't speak english to save his life. I finally just had to say, I did not understand stand a word you just said. He repeated himself 3 times. I just told him I don't mean to be rude, but have someone who can speak english call me back. I just don't get it. You are going to have to pay them just like you would english speaking natives.

I swear. The next time I decide to finance anything, I will make sure their customer service has all english speaking representatives.

When defending yourself become a crime?

I've been watching this trial on the Pharmacist who shot a robber in his pharmacy. I think this case is so amazingly bogus. This guy was just defending hisself. He had no idea this was just a kid. He had no idea this kid wasn't going to get back up! He was protecting hisself and his women employees. On top of that he's crippled. How is this a crime? The kid was robbing HIM and was accompanied by another kid with a gun!

So, now business owners have to be cautious if they defend themselves? Even though they are just doing their job. Even though they are commiting no crime. They have to just take these hoodlums crap? That is so totally ridiculous!
