Have you ever given a friend or partner a second chance? What were the consequences? Any regrets?

I think most people deserve to be given a second chance and I do try to do that within reason. But sadly I've found most don't do anything with that second chance. They follow the same patterns. I might do second chances but when it becomes fourth, fifth, etc. chance, then no.

The nearby military base is doing something...bombings or cannons or something...and it's driving me nuts. *boom, boom, BOOM* Sometimes the back windows rattle. Besides that, it's a beautiful day, nice and warm and breezy. I've been mulching and checking out my few remaining rosebushes, you should see my hands. I can't find my gardening gloves. I had a too small lime green pair and then a better fitting striped pair and can't find them and don't know who else would've wanted them. Ditto for my little hand shovel and hoe. Garden thieves!

I ran into an old employer when I went to mail some things this morning. We never liked each other and did not part under real good terms. She saw me and had the oddest look on her face and then whipped her head around and looked everywhere but at me after that. At first I thought "you old b****!" but then I got to thinking it was kind of funny. She is such a fake person. And I don't think she realizes how many busted veins she has on the backside of her knees because if she did she wouldn't be wearing that very short denim skirt.

I checked on my mom to see how she was doing and she talked my head off for an hour. She is OBSSESSED with all these real-life cases of people being murdered and, understandably, is very upset by this about the little girl in Florida who was apparently killed my her mother. Then there's the Sunday school teacher who killed a little girl. All very tragic and my mom can tell you all the details of the cases and it's a good thing she can't get near the murderers because I think she'd be very tempted to take matters into her own hands. My mom has her faults but she's always been very protective of children.

*BOOM, boom, BOOM* Arrrrggh...

As the holiday season draws to a close, you might be feeling a little strapped for cash. Would you ever consider selling one of your organs (bodily organs, that is) if you really needed the money?


Whaaaaat?

No, I don't think so. I may need them in the future.

I'm tired. Everybody would not settle down tonight. I finally got my shower and sat down and watched most of Pirates of the Caribbean, the first one, The Curse of the Black Pearl, and the best of the three. My husband sat down to watch it, you know he's clueless about anything and didn't even know what he was watching even though all three movies are in our shelf. But he was all for it until he realized Barbossa and his crew were skeletons, then he griped through the rest of it. The man really has zero imagination and should be living back in the 1800's.

What I really wanted to do was go and see The Day the Earth Stood Still but no one would go with me. The reviews about it haven't been too good but I figure I'll like it anyway.

So I'm trying to improve my reading habits. I checked out Eclipse: A Novel of Lewis and Clark by Richard S. Wheeler. There was a big discussion about Lewis and Clark at work a couple of weeks ago and I thought I knew a lot about their expedition but realized my knowledge was a bit skimpy. So far it's okay, at least it's written where I can understand it.

I also looked for several books at the library that I had read years ago and was surprised to find they didn't have them. Several by Mary Stewart, Elizabeth Peters, and Richard Jordan weren't there. Not even Roger Zelazny's "Amber series which I thought was shocking. I asked the lady at the desk about it, I mean these books were very popular, and I know they once had them. She said they'd borrow them from another library for me though it may take a week or two to get them in. She didn't even seem to recognise the books/authors and I'm sure never read them. I know you can't read everything, even if you're a librarian, but you should certainly recognise the names of famous authors I would think.

Is it over with yet? It's not that I don't enjoy Christmas, I do, but I'm craving peace and quiet which isn't going to happen while these people are in the house.

Let's see what I have:

1. Money (not much but it's more than I had when the day began)
2. A rice cooker (I don't know what I'm going to do with this cause I'm an instant rice girl myself, but it is pretty sitting on the counter)
3. Glass mixing bowls
4. Coffee pot
5. A new cooking pot, one of the good kind
6. Hand-made dish towels
7. Good smelling lotions
8. A beautiful cross necklace
9. Picture frames
10. A pretty shirt that's a little too snug
11. Striped pajamas that are so SOFT
12. TWO BOOKS! (Somebody finally listened to me when I said I LOVE BOOKS!)
13. Amber candle holders

I have to see A Chhristmas Story every year. I want Darren McGavin to be my dad, I think he'd be fun. Anyway, I was curious about what happened to Peter Billingsley who plays Ralphie so I went looking. Except for brief parts, he mostly works behind the scenes of movies now, like on Iron Man and the recent Four Christmases which he had brief cameos in and now I'll have to look for him or it'll drive me nuts.

Look here to see how he looks now:
