Just Rita

One of my vendor friends has a radio show on 24.7 The Stream.  The show is live on Mondays from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm.  Past shows are also listed so you can go back and listen to shows that you missed. It's a show about empowering women and it is an awesome show.  She is truly an amazing person.  I always love when I get to do events with her because she is always positive and encouraging. Go check her out you won't regret it.

What did I miss or what did you miss in the common sense field

Common sense seems to be a thing of the past.  Does coffee really need a warning label that it's hot.  Really what did I miss here?  Actually, what did you miss?

Fast food makes you fat when you eat it everyday for every meal.  What did you miss?

Cars come with a turn signal.  They come in handy when changing lanes. What did you miss?

It's a door you walk through it and keep walking. No walking in and stopping right away.  You will get bumped into.  What did you miss?

The entire parking lot is empty and you park next to me.  What did you miss?  Looks like all the other parking spots.

Oh, the cell phone costs $200 and you don't have a job.  What did you miss?

It's my birthday month

A week into February I realized its my birthday month.  My birthday is actually on the 9th.  I tend to celebrate the whole month.  Why not?  I baked for 40 weeks so a day isn't enough to celebrate what is the essence of the One Blonde Brain Cell.  So I'm going to take the whole month and make it one big blonde party.  One day is not enough for anyone's birthday.  We all back for 40 weeks give or take.

So I will decorate my house and annoy the other half with all the streamer and balloons.  Then at the end of the month I will sit on all the balloons and try to pop them  Remember that game as a kid.  We all got a balloon and the first one to pop it won a prize.  What kind of game was that?  Were my parents too cheap to buy the Pin the Tail on the Donkey game.  Even that game was cheap.

So in 2 days I will be 44.  Yes, I said 44.  No, I will not lie or try to lie about it.  It's the truth and I am proud of my age.  So to all those women who don't admit it or don't say because it's not lady like I say yell it from the rooftops.  We all can tell that your closer to 60 and not 29.  So suck it up and love it the age you are.

I will always be a lady.  Foul mouth at times and blonde at others but still a lady and I love it.

The Blizzard of 2015 in Chicago

Ok the totals are in for the Chicagoland area and it was 19 inches of snow at O'hare airport.  This winter has been quiet calm compared to last year's Polar Vortex but its nothing to complain about.  Even before this hit I would hear from people on facbook and from my friends, "I'm done with winter".  Ok really you all live in the Midwest what did you think would happen during the winter.  Ok I admit driving it in can suck but don't do it if you cannot handle it.  Better yet move so you don't have to deal with it.  I'd rather live here than oh lets say Alaska or somethere colder like Greenland or Norway.

We all loved it as kids because we got to miss school and play in it.  Now as adults god forbid we get any. So get over all your whiney selves and enojoy is pretty to look at and just think how green eveything will be in the spring when it melts.  Move on you all are breathing so enjoy the snow.

I was out driving in on Sunday when it was really coming down.  Not the smartest but I also adjusted my driving for the weather and most people were off the roads.  I almost got stuck once but I worked through it and didn't have to have someone save me.

8 days in and I survived

Eight days into the temporary job and I survived.  I sit in an office looking at 2 monitors comparing data.  While it can be mind numbing I think of everything and anything.  Like how it would be to have a camera crew following me around all the time.  Would it annoy me or my family more.  I'd tell them I don't care if you don't want to be on TV it's my life thats on TV.  Oh, wait you're a part of my life..hahahaha.  Suck it up and come for the ride.  It's either gonna be a bore or a dollar coaster ride.

There would be an occasional bleep of words.  Because they slip out of my mouth not my family's mouth.  The boring part would be when I'm at work.  It'd be like watching paint dry.  That could be spiced up if painting was done naked and there was sparkles added to the paint.

It just shows how warped my mind can be when I'm sitting in front of a computer comparing data.  The project goes for another month or so.  Let's see what else my mind wanders too much.  I do enjoy what I do.  But when I come home my eyes are crossed and I can't see straight.  Who needs to see straight when driving.  Being female it actually makes me drive somewhat normal.

The jobs are a rolling in

Ok I don't have job offers rolling in but the other half got a job that starts tomorrow.  So we are both working.

While I have a great family some of their ideas of helping are telling me to sell my car and get a new cheaper one.  I'm sitting there like how the heck is gonna happen.  I don't have steady income so I'll end up walking to work.  Right that will be wonderful walking 15 miles to work in January in Chicago. Hello I'll be a popsicle.  By the time I thaw it'll be time to walk home. But heck I'll loose some weight.  I can see it now the whole thing now.  Only because I have seen other people walking and they look frozen and blue.  Not to mention a few icicles hanging off their noses.

So nope keeping the car at least I'll be able to live in it and it has seat warmers, my butt will always be warm.

Start day tomorrow

Tomorrow is the start of the temporary job.  I had an interview today at a company that sells pools supplies.  Love the pool.  The interview went good and I should know something by Thursday about it.  They are looking to start a training class on Monday.  So of course I'm hoping for that position, because it's a permanent position with opportunities.

I'm going to keep looking for that position until I land the permanent one.  So tomorrow it will start back up and I will see what happens.  I have many plans in play so I can make sure I don't stop until I have it.
