A Pirate’s Life…October Edition

Now that this Pirate has her vision back, the entire Pirate Nation is happy and content. My boys are doing well in the Post Season, Football is a toss up on the college and NFL fronts. Who knows what’s going on. Hockey and Basketball is on and I realize I may need 2 more televisions to keep up with all my teams. Which brings me to my Aha moment of the month.Football, American Football, Sport, Ball

I’ve been sort of sidelined with the eye situation so I’ve become addicted to Hoarders.How to deal with hoarder homes. Strategies and tips for clearing, organizing, and maintaining homes with excessive amounts of stuff.:

If you have been living under a rock, this show goes inside the homes of Hoarders and tries to get them to throw their shit out. And we aren’t talking a collection of National Geographic or newspapers. No these folks hoard everything from receipts to animals, some in the freezer dead. Now, obviously these folks have mental health issues so no judging on that. But it did make me take a long look at my life and ask myself why I keep some of the things I do.Fashion, Hat, Hatstand, Png, FreeSunglasses, Glasses, Sun, Sun Protection

I can’t throw away magazines or books. Ever. If you ever wrote me a letter or card, it’s still here. It just seems rude to throw those things away. Shoes….forget it. I have never thrown away a pair of shoes. If it’s older than dirt or was given to me by a family member, whatever it is, I have it.Magazine, Newspaper, Open, Opened

The book and magazine issue was easily solved. Donate to the Library! Not every book….I can’t do that. Especially the signed copies. Shoes….just let it go. But I did clean out my desk and get rid of those 10 year old receipts for a weed eater I don’t even have anymore.

We live in a big box store world. Sam’s Costco, Wal-Mart….they all encourage us to buy in bulk. Seriously who needs 40 rolls of toilet paper. It’s not like you have to hitch up the wagon and go into town for TP anymore. There is usually a market close enough to your house that you can pop in every now and again to get some supplies.

A friend has challenged me to the 1 year of living simply. And after she told me I could keep all of my shoes/handbags/jewelry/clothes, I agreed. I have to stick to a budget, I made a Needs vs. Wants list. So we shall see how this goes! Any helpful tips will be appreciated.

Am I The Only One?

I have had a list of industry specific books to read and review lately and since they are not available to the public, I won’t put them on here. So instead I am just going to share my unsolicited opinion on some topics….waiting with bated breath, are you?

How about you just stay the hell off my page if you have a problem with what I post! Keep your opinion about my opinion I post on MY page to yourself! lol #DA #mindyourownfuckingbusiness #Yourethenarcissist:

I think I am probably one of the only people who routinely goes through their Twitter account and deletes followers. Why? First off it is hard to keep up with so many people and all of their people and on and on.  I am not interested in getting followers just for the sake of numbers. I really need for you to have something in common with me. Books, Art, Music, Humor, and say hello once in a while, send me things you think I would like. And I do the same. If I follow you and you immediately DM me with all of your other sites and places I can buy your_______ ( fill in the blank).  That is an instant Block!

hello

This weekend I did the same with my FB pages and accounts. Strictly because grown ass men and women that I grew up with and went from first grade to graduation with were jumping on 1. #boycottNFL bandwagon. Uh, no, I don’t think so. I don’t give a rat’s ass about what those players do as long as my Fantasy team kicks butt. And no one else seems to either. You should look up how many current players were convicted of felonies and are still playing most Sundays. And I waited way too long for football season. And 2. The Trump vs. Hillary topic. When you are calling the President’s mother and Hillary a whore, we have a problem. Unless being a whore is your profession, but this was used as a slur.

I don’t care where you stand on the political race, but name calling, especially calling women whores, is not okay. It makes me not like you and think way less of you than I already do. As my Momma would say, those people are ignorant and don’t have the vocabulary to express themselves in any other way.

I am fed up with it. We teach our children not to be bullies and name callers and yet we accept it and participate in it on television and in conversation. It’s embarrassing as a woman and as an American. I keep expecting the Queen to hop across the pond and put us all in a time out until we can get our shit together!

So to all of those people who live to do and say offensive things…mind your own business and if you can’t say something halfway intelligent, well then zip it.

As Nikki over at A Kinder Way says…be kind to everyone. hellokind

Thanks for listening and being kind!  xxP

A Sad Day in Soonerville….

soonerslose1Right up to the moment they scored their first touchdown, faithful Sooner Fans were yelling “Boomer” and answering each other with “Sooner”.  And then radio silence! Where did they all go?sonerschooner

I am pretty sure they loaded up the wagon and made a really long trip back to Norman.

When OU Boy got home the game was over. And that is when it got really good! First I locked the door and told him only Winners can come in. And no, you can’t have a cupcake. Cupcakes are for Winners!  Oh my gosh look at OSU wiping the floor with some popcorn team from Louisiana! And still Silence.  

I finally figured it out. They were all crying. Ahhh the tears of my enemies…life is sweet sometimes and other times, well, you’re a Sooner Fan. Also Congratulations to my BHS Pirates!  Stay tuned for more Trash Talk Sunday! For now I’m working on my Fantasy Football League.    xxooP
