Mullet Monday

Because…..come on…say it with me? If Monday were a hairstyle it would most definitely be a mullet right?






I’ve always loved action packed war movies. My all time favorite is Saving Private Ryan. There are so many incredible ones out there from Platoon, Jarhead, Pearl Harbor, Good Morning, Vietnam and I could go on and on. After all, many men in my family have fought for this land of the free that I call home. Why wouldn’t I be obsessed with war movies right?

I stumbled upon this new drama series Six on the history channel the other day. Once I saw the first episode I had to stay up half the night to watch all five on demand. I’m a huge fan of Walton Goggins. I think he looks the best when he’s scruffy like in the photo below. I mean this guy has played a transgender escort on SOA, to landing the role Billy Crash in the Quentin Tarantino film Django and playing the sociopathic character Lee Russell in the comedy Vice Principals. This guy……he can do it ALL.


Six is the story of six navy seals on a very complicated mission with heavy combat and attempting to apprehend terrorists. I don’t want to give too much of it away. This is based on true events and the acting is superb. The personal stories of each seal is twisting, binding, and keeps you wanting more. The brotherhood of these men is sensational. Whether they’re fighting each other or fighting for their country they stick together no matter what.

If you’ve not already seen the show, I suggest giving it a try. See the preview below…

More To Me Than You


Dig Your Way Out

Three facts about me….I hate this part. I always have a hard time of finding something interesting to put.

1.) I’m mechanically inclined…I look at industrial equipment schematics all day long and assist technicians and customers with parts needs or service information.

2.) I have a cat named Franklin. I was a dog person for 17 years. My senior pup passed away last summer. Franklin helped my heart heal after losing my pup. So for that I’m so grateful. Never thought I would be a cat lady but I suppose you could call me a cat lady in training?

3.) I adore Lady Gaga. I truly do. I saw her a couple of years ago on her art pop tour. Not gonna lie, I was center stage on the floor and it smelled like hot ass and cheese. I’m too old for that shit now. Ha. My feet were killing me by the time we made it home. I wore leather pants and heels to that concert in the middle of July in Atlanta. Not a smart move to say the least. I love that she speaks out for all of the outcasts and calls her fans little monsters. I can relate to her music and she is such a wonderful entertainer. She keeps us guessing and wanting more of her meat dresses and ass cheeks hanging out. Think about it, she sings pop, country, rock, and made a hit album with Tony Bennett for crying out loud. She will bring you to tears singing the national anthem and does it proudly. She’s fabulous.

Nominations….I also dislike this part because I want to nominate everyone but then again a lot of folks don’t do these awards. So, here’s the thing, if you want to do this, please do it. You don’t even have to share my blog or any of that. Remember, it’s good to tell your followers a little about yourself. I think sometimes we get lost in not talking about ourselves with our blogs as we focus on other things like politics, music, TV, emotions, recipes, etc. Share something of yourself with everyone. It brings you closer to other bloggers. Just sayin…

Told you I don’t like rules.

Thank you again Simon for nominating me and you know how much your friendship means to me!







Pretty Pretty Please

I’ve written on this subject before. I have a few friends that suffer from depression. Bipolar depression. It runs in my family too. I’m one of the fortunate ones that hasn’t had a problem with depression before. Don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of things wrong with me… RMS (Restless Mouth Syndrome), overly confident, bossy, and the list goes on. But, it’s extremely hard on people with depression as there are days where they don’t feel like they’re enough. They feel as if their world is swallowing them up. They’re in pain mentally and trapped by these voices in their heads putting them down constantly.

I don’t necessarily understand it all but I can tell you it’s hurting them tremendously. My heart aches for these people. I have one friend that I adore. She struggles daily and has had this horrible sickness her entire life. She’s so talented, smart, funny, witty, sarcastic and just overall one of the most beautiful people I know. But yet, she can’t find that happiness and is constantly in the fight with those horrible demons in her head telling her she’s not good enough. I’ve told her in the past to punch those demons in the throat and tell them to fuck off. If only it were that easy…..I’m a fixer. I want to fix people. I want the whole world to be happy and confident and accepting of each other and themselves. Why can’t I fix it? Why can’t we fix ourselves? Life isn’t fair sometimes is it?

Well, maybe this is a little start. This is such a good song and when I hear it I think of my friends that suffer from depression and have such a difficulty getting out of bed and functioning. I hope this helps just a tiny bit today for those who are suffering with depression. With whatever battle you’re fighting whether it’s being body shamed, bullied, not fitting in, not meeting societies standards add this song to your playlist and I assure you it will get you through some tough days. P!nk is such an amazing artist and the words are incredible. So, turn up the volume and remember you’re enough.

As for my friend, whether you believe it or not, pretty, pretty, please, don’t you ever, ever feel like you’re less than fucking perfect.


Firm Hold Part I

The other day I posted Caught Up  where I shared with you I hadn’t had much time to write. Well, this morning I’ve written the first part of a story. Hopefully next week I’ll have the second part of it posted or the end. We’ll see. But here goes…..

Firm Hold Part I

Marlowe had just read the front page of the local paper. Silva had finally made his mark. Too bad it was death. But he certainly had it coming. As Marlowe gazed out of the French doors overlooking the fountain in the courtyard she saw a blue jay sitting on the wrought iron rail singing. She exhaled a slow breath. She sat her coffee cup down on the delicate gold rimmed saucer. She knew all along she had the right man for the job. Ricci had completed the hit just like she requested. He was precise, swift and thorough. One bullet to the brain and the nauseating fat fuck mobster wannabe was out of the business.

Silva was Marlowe’s nemesis. Some might have said he was her competition. But, he was actually small time compared to Marlow and her father Marty. She and her father had built their business on integrity and class. They owned the jewelry galleria down on Forsyth Park in historic Savannah, Ga. They also used the galleria as a front for the largest gun smuggling operation in the south. They had a very lucrative business that was growing by leaps and bounds.

Silva ran his mouth to a snitch that was on Marlowe’s payroll that he was going to have her and her father clipped. Once she got wind of it she called an old friend in Vegas and he highly recommended Ricci. She decided to have Silva taken care of discretely without her father knowing. Sure, he would find out sooner or later but she would ask for forgiveness later. Her father didn’t need this stress on him with his heart problems. She adored her father. He had taught her everything she knew. Her father felt sorry for Silva and allowed him to continue with his small gun smuggling racketeer. She knew they had a history together. Her Dad had told her that there was enough to go around. Obviously Silva thought differently. Greed got the best of him. Now his body could rot in the dirt for all she cared. She would soon take over his crew and pay them more than Silva ever could. That would keep the peace.

Stay tuned….

Caught Up

Is that a thing? For Real? I can’t remember the last fucking time I was caught up. I swear, if one more person asks me “Are you caught up yet?” at work I’m going to throat punch them. Yes, I have a guy that started a few months ago that is like an assistant but business is really booming right now. We’re on fire I tell ya. That’s a fantastic thing. I’m not necessarily complaining but I so miss reading all of your blogs and writing my own shit. I know I post my usual funny stuff on Mondays and Wednesdays but come on, I’d love just one day of no work, plans, or anything going on so I could just dive into some deep writing. I feel like I don’t feel anymore. I don’t have time to feel my emotions or whatever you call it. I’m not in tune with my inner self. I need this release like really bad. No, not sex people, get your mind out of the gutter. I get a lot of that thank you very much but I need my writing back. I need to balance some time for it no doubt.

Maybe this is a start right? At least I’m logging my thoughts here in this post. I will say I have a few close bloggers that I converse with via e-mail and that’s helpful. I’m so thankful for all of you out there that stop by and like and comment my stuff. I really really appreciate it. It’s wonderful to know you’re still hanging on to this blog for some odd reason. I hope to stop by your blogs soon, very soon. I’ve just got to work on some personal space here to have the time to do it.

For now I’ll leave you with Four Five Seconds because this pretty much sums up my frustration with work and no me time. Thank God tomorrow is Friday is all I’m gonna say.
