Monday Listicles - 10 Most Annoying Sounds

Hey you guys! I decided to link up with Northwest Mommy (a little late, I realize) for Monday Listicles for my list of 10 most annoying sounds.

1. Whining...of any kind. Get some cheese to go with that whine.

2. Nails down a chalkboard...gives me the shivers, cannot stand it.

3. That stupid earworm song, "Call Me Maybe". I avoid it on the radio at
all costs.

4. The squeak of my car door opening....no matter what I do I can't get
that damn door to stop squeaking.

5. Certain people's voices - I'm not naming names, but when they speak, I
swear I want to put a muzzle over their mouths.

6. The TV when it gets louder during the commercials...OMG it makes my
skull just want to shatter.

7. The JG Wentworth opera commercial. It is the most annoying commercial
in history. Someone should shoot those people.

8. Rattling silverware...again, skull shattering

9. Chainsaws

10. Whiny kids...I want to muzzle them, or put earmuffs on myself.

So that's it! What are your most annoying sounds?

Cancer...you can kiss my ass! Fuck off!

I am pretty angry right now you guys.  Not at God...nor man, but at the big C.  I currently have 4 friends that I know of that are currently fighting for their lives because of fucking cancer.  I have other friends and family battling other diseases also, and I certainly do not want to belittle their pain and suffering....we'll do an angry post on that later.

My first friend is a woman, who back in 2007 was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She had the lumpectomy thing and courses of chemo and radiation and was given a clean bill of health.  The cancer came back in no time.  She has been fighting it on and off ever since, and since she is a private person and I don't know all the details, I can only guess how bad it is now.  I can tell though by the way she moves, walks very slowly....like it hurts her, and she's not the same firecracker of a gal that I've known the last 10 years.  Cancer has taken that away from her.  I hope that she will find some treatment that will help her, I don't want to lose my friend.

My second friend is a guy from my childhood I haven't seen in years.  He's about 5 years younger than me, early to mid thirties, and he was just diagnosed with cancer....WHAT?  I saw it on his facebook page and my jaw hit the motherfucking floor.  I absolutely was shocked beyond belief.  This is a young guy y'all!  I do not know what kind of cancer it is, I'm trying to find out but I have sent him a note of encouragement on email letting him know he was in my prayers.  He's one of those very giving people - works with the youth at church, volunteer fireman, and he coaches ball for the kids at school.  I am just reeling from this news, I just found out yesterday.

My third friend has multiple myeloma and is finally back from Duke after 3 weeks of going through the ringer of chemo and bone marrow replacement therapy.  You'll never find a nicer guy no matter where you go.  He lost his hair of course, but he's still a cutie, we're calling him Mr. Clean.  He did have to stop his running and he is a HUGE runner, so he hated that.  The exercise bike has had to do, along with yoga and swimming.  So far so good with him, but he has had to go through the shit you guys.  This has gone on since the beginning of the year or so.

Lastly, is one of my closest friends' husband.  He has been through the chemo, major MAJOR surgery, and then this week just found out that he still has cancer in his lymph nodes.  He spent 2 weeks at Duke after his surgery recovering and now this. 

I just want to kick cancer in the nads right now.  Leave my friends alone!  Leave my friends' loved ones alone!  Fuck off already! Haven't you done quite enough damage thank you very much? 

Anybody else wants to vent and tell cancer off, please by all means use the comments section below and go for it!

When you're a Jet....continued

Well I think the kittehs are starting to make their way back now that the heat wave is over.  I came home from work tomorrow night, and what did I see hiding back in the bushes?  A kitteh!  Much as he tried to hide, I saw a little kitteh cat.  He was all alone, guess he was holding down the fort/hideout while the other kittehs were out doing kitteh gang business.
We've had some rain, so they haven't been hanging around while its been wet which sucks.

I was getting ready for work the other morning when I heard a kitteh rumble a happening outside the window!  Gang wars have begun!  Uh Oh!  I hope they weren't fighting over that ho-cat Maria, when she's in heat she doesn't care if your name is Tony or what!  Or, I hope it wasn't Dally fighting....don't hurt Dally!  (See, I can't decide if I have a West Side Story going on or The Outsiders, so we're combining storylines okay?)  Don't kill Ponyboy either!!!!  (stay gold Ponyboy....stay gold!!)

Well that's the latest kitteh gang adventures....Next installment will be when something else exciting happens, so we'll see!  It's supposed to rain all weekend, so it may be awhile.

When you're a Jet, you're a Jet all the way........

I don't even know where to start with this one, so I'm just going to jump right in.

See, the "flowerbeds" at the front of my house are pretty dense, full of just bushes and hostas and weeds that I need to go and deal with but don't because I suck and hate yardwork.  This also applies to our "natural area" in our front yard, which really doesn't look that bad.  The azaleas just need to be cut back a bit and there's a dogwood stuck in there randomly (hey, it was there when we moved in).

Anyhoo, my bushes seem to have attracted some pretty sketchy creatures.....all of our neighborhood outdoor cats.  I can come home after dark and see at least 5 or 6 of them scatter all at once out of those bushes at any time.  I've tried talking to them, petting them, but they are waaaayyyy too bad ass for that.

I just wonder what they're REALLY doing in there?  Having a secret meeting on how to take out the other kitty gang one street over?  Do I have the Jets or the Sharks meeting in my bushes?   Or do I have an Outsiders situation going on - are they Greasers or Socs?  Stay Gold, Ponyboy!!!!

Are there boy and girl kitties in there and is that their "make-out" spot?  (eww)  I really don't know. 

I kind of picture them like this.....

I did notice a couple weeks ago that I went out to my car and one of the kitties, a big one that is orange and white, was laying on his/her back....showing that belly and just relaxing like the laziest cat ever.
This cat did nothing when I came outside.  I spoke and he/she looked at me like, "What the hell do you want lady?"  and went right back to sunning that belly.  I think that cat might be the head of the gang.  I have decided he is Don Whiskers Corleone.

During this heat wave in the past week, I think they are laying low.  I haven't seen the kitties.  They must be staying indoors.  But, they'll be back.....they'll all be back.....
