LuLu




This is a sad day. I know you guys remember Lucy because i used to blog about her all the time. She was Miami Don's dog, but I loved her like my own. She moved here to Vegas with us and she was the best girl in the world. I guess she was abused when she was a puppy and when they found her she was tied to a tree, the hair had been rubbed off her legs, she was in bad shape and then don came along. He adopted her from the SPCA and a new love was formed. hehe The two of them were like peas in a pod. Lucy loved him so much and vice versa.





One of my favorite memories is when Don and I bought this two pound bag of Mike and Ike's from Target. It was huge and delish! So, we inadvertently left it on the coffee table in the living room and we didn't close it tight enough. Lucy got into that bag and had a field day. She ate as much as she could eat until she literally made herself sick.




Fast forward to morning time. We wake up and go into the living room and we start finding these gooey puddles all over the hard wood floors. Every few feet there was a puddle of sticky goo, some were red, some were green, some were yellow, etc. We get to the living room and see the Mike and Ike's bag is wide open and the pieces start falling into place.




UGH. What a nightmare. Don has a big mess to clean up. hehehe We hop back into bed and start petting our girl Lucy. WE know she has a stomach ache from hell since she's puking her guts up. Next thing I know, she can't hold it in any longer and she starts spewing all over Don. I hopped out of that bed just in the nick of time! hehehehehe. Now I know why he's so anal about taking the trash out, not putting any food in the smaller wastebaskets and basically not leaving anything within doggy reach.

Good times.

If it wasn't for lucy, I might not be here to tell you this story. There was a very real chance that I was about to die and Lucy saved my life. I'll tell you guys that story a little later.




So, before Don moved back out here to Vegas for the 2nd time, Lucy wasn't her usual self. She'd been lethargic and kind of droopy. Apparently after he moved here Lucy got even worse and instead of being tired, she was obviously in pain and she was biting people to show it. So, they took her to the vet a few days ago and found out that she has cancer. He had to put her to sleep today. She was in pain and it was the only humane thing to do. It just makes me so sad.

So, RIP Lucy. You will always be in our hearts.

High Rolling

Ugh! I woke up yesterday and I wasn't feeling well. I couldn't put my finger on it, but something wasn't right. I started running errands and then my mouth started doing that yucky watering thing that it does right before I'm about to puke. UGH. I had to pull the car over and puke on the side of the road. It happened a few times. I ended up crawling into the back seat and taking a nap in the shade. BTW - I know you guys are having like a major storm across most of the country, but it was like 65 degrees here yesterday and the sun was beating down on me. Ugh. I felt like such shit. Everytime I took a sip of water, I threw it up. I couldn't even call anyone to come get me because my phone still wasn't working. I remedied that situation today. I ended up making it home just barely and I crawled into bed with my jeans still on and slept the entire day and night.

I woke up today and I'm feeling better, but still a little off. I'm not puking anymore though. I just ate a bowl of chicken noodle soup and I kept it down so that's huge. I don't know what the deal is. Is the flu going around or something? I don't even know anyone that's sick right now.

I got my Cannery stuff for next month. Usually I get five dollars in free slot play every month and two free buffets. Well, in December when my Uncle Wayne was here he used my Cannery Players Card the whole time he was here and my free play went up to $20 a week! Yay!! Love it!! I also got like $15 off any restaurant in the Cannery and two for one buffet all freakin month. Nice. Who knew they sent out such fun stuff to high rollers? I wish I had the money to keep this up, but I'm sure it'll be back to normal next month.

I also got some free play at the M Resort and some two for one buffets over there. Did I tell you guys we waited in an hour and a half line to eat at the M Resort Buffet when my uncle was here and it was worth every minute? In my opinion, it's the best freakin buffet in Vegas. OMG it's so freakin good!!!!!!

The ice cream I bought on the way home is calling to me. Cougartown is taping and Modern Family just finished. Time to slowly get my ass off this computer and on to the couch for the rest of the night.

Goodnight Kids!

Howdy Doody

Kathy Madigan was awesome. I knew she would be. she had a great opening act, his name was Jason Doody. I'll find a clip on youtube for you guys. Nevermind, I won't find a clip for you guys because I looked for one and I couldn't find anything. Oh well - he was really funny though. His last name is enough to give you a chuckle in the first place! All in all, the show was worth WAY more than the $25 ticket price. The venue was intimate and I don't think there were any bad seats. She had a full house too. I remembered some of her jokes from the special she has on cable - "Gone Madigan". But, she also added a bunch of new ones that I didn't know.

Today my parents picked up a couple from the airport that they knew. sort of. They know the girl's parents, but they don't really know her and her husband all that well. Anyway, they flew in from Baltimore and they are attending a convention all week at Mandalay Bay. So, I met them downtown on Fremont Street and we had dinner at the Golden Gate (Home of the 99 cent shrimp cocktail). We take everyone there. Funny thing... due to inflation I guess, they raised the price of the shrimp cocktail to $1.99 and I don't know why, but they took it off the menu. If we didn't know about it and ask for it, we would have never been able to try it. I can't imagine why they took it off the menu. They also had these cute placemats that gave a history of Vegas and some of the important milestones. But, those were MIA too. I guess they are cutting back. Times are tough!

I gotta say - The Golden Nugget is top notch. I valet ed my car there and they were just so delightful. They asked me if I had a nice time when I was leaving and also asked me if I needed directions. How nice! I usually do the self park thing when I'm on the strip, but when I go downtown, I always valet. It just makes sense. If you do self park you have to get your parking ticket validated and usually you only get three hours free. So, if you are there longer, you have to pay. But, the valet is free. Of course you would want to tip, but technically, you don't have to because it's not mandatory. Again, I suggest that you tip those guys though because they rock!!

So, my stupid ass cell phone is totally fucked. I'm surprised it took this long to stop working because I drop the damn thing all the time. As of now, it only works if it's plugged into the wall and it gives me an error message that says I need to insert the battery. The battery is already on there, but for some reason it's not being read. Anyway, i'll be purchasing a new phone this week. I haven't decided if I should get the cheapest one which is what I have now. It's basic but it does have a camera and I can connect to the internet, a little bit. I can't see any graphics or anything because it's just too much for my phone to handle, but I can look at my e-mails and some stuff on facebook. Or, I could spend a little more and get a nicer phone that would allow me to use the internet. Hmmmm. What to do what to do? Any suggestions? I'm with Cricket.

Well, it's time for me look for more jobs online. Goodnight kids. Actually,. I'll think of something to write about from the past and I'll be back to post it later.

I'm Awake Now

When I woke up and came out into the kitchen, my mom gave me what seemed like a pretty sincere apology and although I'm sure she still thinks she didn't do anything wrong, it was nice to get an apology instead of a "this is what you get" attitude.

Tomorrow the four of us are heading to the most amazing pizza place ever - Metro Pizza for dinner and then to the Southpoint to see Kathy Madigan. She's so funny. I'm totally psyched.

Here's a clip in case you've never seen her...





Back to the good old days...


After the Sammy debacle, I didn't waste much time finding a new boyfriend. Of course I had to keep it in the neighborhood so that Sammy could see what he was missing out on and have major regrets. Duh. That was totally my m.o. I bounced from group to group and friends of friends within the group. I wasn't a slut or anything, I wasn't sleeping with all these guys, but I definitely liked to stick with what i knew. ha ha So, I went to the same clubs and hung out at the same bars with the same crew and I hooked up with Gary or Terry. Hmmmm. They were identical twins and now I'm having a hard time remembering if I was with Terry or Gary. Like Sammy, they were small time drug dealers pretending to be Nino Brown in South Baltimore. This was back in the day before I had my lazer eye surgery and the reason I know this is because I used to have really bad eyesight and I wore glasses when I was a kid and then when I entered middle school I started wearing contact lenses. This particular night we were home from the club, I put my pj's on and took out the contact lenses so I was officially blind. We turned off the lights and laid on the ghetto ass mattress he had on the floor. No headboard, no box spring, no comforter and dust ruffle, just a mattress on the floor right underneath a window. I was just drifting off into dream land when I heard tap tap tap on the window above my head. I look up and see this crackhead outside, tapping on the window with a gun. JESUS! I'm awake now! I about jumped out of my skin. Gary woke up and went outside to deal with this loser that wanted to trade this gun for some crack. I guess that was a fairly normal occurrence for him, but good lord it scared the shit out of me. And then, to top things off, Terry/Gary also had baby mama drama going on. So, when I got back into bed and tried to get to sleep, this crazy bitch shows up at the house and she's trying to break the door down to get to me because she saw my car outside. See? I'm not the only crazy ex that was doing the stalker thing. In fact guys, I can almost guarantee that all of your past relationships have done a little investigating here and there when you were least expecting it.

At any rate, these guys had more drama than even I could handle and believe me, I likes the drama. I do believe that was the last time I spent the night at that house and things with the twins sort of fizzled out. On to the next crew...

Ouch

Well, I found out what happened to the paypal check. My mom actually opened it, signed it over to herself and cashed it. Nice huh? I was on the phone with paypal last night and they said the check was sent back in December and cashed. I was like "what the hell??" It made no sense. I didn't cash the check and nobody else has my I.D. So, they were about to do a trace on the check for me when I yelled out to my mom and asked her if I had received a check in the mail. She said no. I told her that I was waiting on a check from paypal and that it had already been cashed and she finally admitted that she did it. She basically said, "It doesn't feel too good does it?" In response to my asking her why she would steal from me. Ouch. Obviously she feels that she's entitled to the money since I was a little less than honest when - okay a lot less than honest a while back. I guess I totally got what I deserved but she's right, it definitely doesn't feel good. To be honest, I'm fucking pissed. I guess I have no right to be, but I am.

It's becoming ever so clear to me that I need to move the fuck out. Yeah, it's free here, but having to put up with this bullshit is like, not very fun to put it mildly. I hope I get a job soon. I had a pretty good interview today actually and tomorrow I'm going in for a 2nd interview, so we'll see what happens.

I'm heading to the Cannery with pops. WE have free buffet coupons. Free is the way to go for sure!!

Goodnight!

Doormat

Okay, I'm definitely contacting paypal in the morning and hopefully they will resolve my issue.

So, since my life has been so boring as of late, I decided to write about the good ol' crazy days again. The first thing that comes to mind that I don't think I talked about before is my ex boyfriend, Sammy.

He lived in the Curtis Bay/Brooklyn area of Baltimore and he thought he was all that. In turn, I also thought he was all that and most of my friends thought he was pretty damn cool too. He sold drugs, although he didn't have much to show for it and he still lived at home with his parents, but he always bought me and my girlfriends drinks when we went out to the bar so that made me happy. he even sprung for Denny's at 3 a.m. once in a while too.

Of course, he had a little baby mama drama going on (doesn't every good drug dealer)? I remember being jealous of his ex and wishing I was the one that had his baby. Good thing we don't always get what we want. hehe Anyway, we spent a lot of time together and things were going pretty well, although in the back of my mind I had a nagging feeling that there was more to him and his baby mama then just the baby they shared. So, when summer came rolling around and all of his friends came out with jet skiis, I let him talk me into co-signing for him. Of course he didn't have any credit because he probably never had a paying job in his life. And of course, silly, gullible, me believed him when he said he'd make the payments every month. He kept the jet ski at his house and as far as I was concerned everything was being taken care of.... until...

of course, one day Sammy just fell off the face of the earth. NO phone call, no breakup message, not even a post it note! At least Carrie got a note from what's his name when he broke up with her, I didn't even get that. A day went by, another day went by, the yucky feeling in the pit of my stomach was getting stronger and stronger. I tried calling him on the third day and he didn't answer. I started doing the drive by stalker thing trying to figure out if he was alive and avoiding me or if he was like missing and dead in a ditch somewhere. He wasn't dead. Damn. I was hoping he was lying in a hospital with amnesia or something.

Finally, I had to get my girlfriend, Melissa to call him from a number that he didn't recognize so that he would answer the damn phone. Then, I grabbed the phone and told him it was me and asked him what the hell was up. I was right to be worried about baby mama drama.

He finally informed me that he went back to his ex. Gee, a little heads up would have been nice. I guess he also thought he was just going to get to keep the jet ski as a present that he NEVER had to pay for. Because, as you already know I'm sure, he never made one payment. I finally had to break down, fess up to the parents, call the police and have them go to his house with us so that we could get the stupid sea doo, take a two thousand loss on the damn thing, sell it and pay the difference so that my credit wouldn't be fucked up. Stupid Stupid Stupid me. Lesson learned though. I never let a guy walk over me like that again.

I was such a doormat when I was younger I swear.

Anyway, I guess the reason I thought about Sammy and the jet ski is because he found me on facebook the other day and friend requested me. Funny right?? I accepted him just because I was dying to see if he was still a loser. The jury's still out.

I can't think of a clever title

Another weekend in the bag just about. Today I played in a Texas Holdem Tournament here in the neighborhood at the clubhouse. It was a pretty good turnout. We had 3 tables with 27 players in total and three people had bounties on them. I tried to knock one of the bounties out, but her AJ beat my A9. And yes, I'm sorry to admit I put so much money in the pot with A9, but she was the short stack, the blinds were getting really high, and again, I was trying for the bounty. Oh well. You win some and you lose some. Today was a losing day for me all around. I went to the Cannery and lost there too.

A few days ago I went over to MiamiDon's place to see it. Cute. He's only about 15 minutes from us now and hopefully he'll be able to get Lucy out here soon. I miss her!!! I wonder if she'll remember me. Lucy is his dog in case you don't know who I'm talking about.

Anyway, the four of us (parents, don and me) are going to see Kathy Madigan next weekend at Southpoint. I'm psyched!! I think she's so totally funny. I think it'll be a good time.

ummmmmm, I still haven't gotten my ad check yet. I'm getting annoyed. I withdrew it on December 10th, so it's been over a month now. Do you guys think I need to contact someone??

Jersey Girls

Remind me not to ever go to the Goldcoast or Ellis Island again. They suck. I lost my ass off. Even though I had free slot play, of course I opened my trusty wallet and spent my own money. What a mistake that was.

Oh well. I just finished watching Week One of the Jersey Shore - good lord! What a crazy season it's shaping up to be. Am I the only one watching this or do my readers watch it too? It's definitely a guilty pleasure, but I love it! Such Drama. It brings me back to the days when I was spending my summers in Ocean City, Maryland. We have a boardwalk and rides and a beach - just like the Jersey Shore. The only thing we didn't have was knock em down, drag em out, kick em when they are down and kill em if you can fights. These girls scrap like they are dudes or something. I mean, wow, such venom, such anger, such hostility. I've been in my fair share of fights, some verbal and a lot of them were physical, but they were spaced out sporadically over many many years. These chicks are fighting almost every night.

Well, I think that's it for me tonight. Bed is calling. Did I mention how nice it is to have my bed back after more than a month of sleeping on the couch? Oh hell yeah, loving it.

Paypal Question

Question:

Have any of you guys ever had a check sent to you in the mail from paypal?? Usually, when I do a withdrawal, I'll have the money dumped into my bank account and it's usually there in about two days. But, I decided to have a check sent to me in the mail this time and I thought they said it could take up to 14 business days, but I did the withdrawal on December 20th and now it's January 7th and I think it should be here by now.

Well, actually, I just counted it and with the holidays, I guess it's only like 12 business days. So, I'll wait another two days before I start freaking out. But, anyway, has anyone ever done this and how long did it take before you got the check??

I went to the Cannery yesterday, again, and hit a few more 5 out of 5's on four card keno. I love that game.

I have free slot play at the Goldcoast and Ellis Island, so I think I'll take a little drive over to those places today. Happy Friday!

Fun!

I went to the mall today with my mom and then we swung by Target where I bought the cutest new ipod. It's a 2 GB shuffle, so it doesn't hold tons of songs, but it's tiny and it's green and I'm very happy with it. Well, so far, I'm just charging it, so I haven't actually uploaded any music to it or even listened to it, but I'm sure it'll be great.

Earlier, I went to the Cannery, put five bucks in the machine and walked out with $50 and that was less than hour of work. Love it! I wish I could win like that every time I go to the casino.

Fun! I'm buying music with my itunes gift card - it's so strange. I'm used to getting my music free from napster and then winmx and then limewire. But, since they've all been shut down, I'm doing it the legal way. What a weird concept.

goodnight!

Tradition

One of my favorite gifts every year comes from my Aunt Elaine. She always sends me a very generous gift certificate. Sometimes it's for Bebe, sometimes it's for Target and another time she sent one for Marshalls. Target is my favorite and that's what she sent this year. I've been wandering in and out spending some here and there, but tomorrow I'll probably buy myself a new ipod to go along with the itunes gift card that my uncle bought.

Why tomorrow???? Well, my mom and I are doing a little after christmas shopping at the mall. We used to go to the mall faithfully every single weekend back in maryland. Over the years, that tradition has fallen by the wayside, so it'll be really nice to get back out there and spend some quality shopping time with mama.

Well, I can't think of anything else to write now and that means it's time for me to hop into bed. Goodnight kids.

goodnight

Did everyone make it back to work today? I'm guessing it was a depressing day. First day after the holidays, Santa is gone for another year and it was a monday? yuck!

I got approved for another unemployment extension which is cool, but I'm looking for a job hard core, so although I'm happy about the money, I'm not going to sit around and live off of it like I was in the past. I'm actually very ready to go back to work.

I looked for a job over the holidays, but as you can imagine the pickings were pretty slim. I'm sure things will pick up now that it's a new year. Hopefully!

Christmas was awesome. We all had a nice day. I didn't do anything exciting for new years. I just went to the cannery with my parents and I was actually home by myself, just Opey and I when the clock struck midnight. Lame, I know, but I was thrilled because I won so much money at the Cannery and I actually went home with it instead of spending it. That's a good feeling.

I just watched that Craigslist killer movie on Lifetime. It was okay, but kinda boring. There wasn't any excitement or suspense or anything. It was just very straight forward and to the point.

Well, that's all I have for tonight. See ya tomorrow.

Hello 2011

Happy New Year Everyone!!!!

I had a good night. Went to the Cannery, won some cash, learned my dad's new keno system, won some more cash, and I'll be back after I eat a bowl of ice cream to write more. I hope everyone was safe and had a good night.
