Are you really qualified enough to say hooah?

Hooah.

I hate the word. I grew up with it since my dad joined the army when I was 8. Its even worse when the wives, especially the NEW wives use it. They torment me and yell it like they are allowed to.

Wives on myspace drive me nuts with this crap:





Excuse me, your soldier does what? Do any of these wives understand the meaning of this word?



It means "I understand" or "yes". Seriously, can't we just be old fashioned and just scream and moan as we are climaxing or do we need to scream hooah because our husband is in the military? Sorry, but I'm a screamer and I think that if I honestly screamed hooah I think the sex session would be over. For a long time.


I can go on and on how I hate this word and I think I just started hating it a couple years ago when the new wives thought it was "cute". Yeah, cute. Almost as cute as this:
*disclaimer*I do like these tag makers just some of their tags are just cutesy and make me wanna puke.


Ok, off the subject since I saw this one earlier:








I am sorry but if you miss your husband for one night there is something seriously wrong with you and you don't need to be married to a soldier. You need to suck it up and get a hobby. Don't get me wrong I love these tag makers but whoever wanted them to make this seriously has seperation issues. What would happen if this person's husband left for Iraq for 12 months?

So there is my rant for the week.

Questions? Comments? Rants?

Bring it on babes!

CBS, you never cease to bore me!

My absolute new favorite show is Swingtown. Oh how I am obsessed over the 70's fashion and fads. I want to have one of those fondue parties, hence the kissing someone else's man of course! How fast and free it was to live in the 70's! My mom was a teenager in that time and I'm sure she was crazy, but then again she is pretty open with me about her past. I was born in 1980 so technically I was made in 1979!hehe.

Check it out sometime, its on Thursday nights on CBS

Is he or isn't he?


So my hubby is leaving for NTC in Cali next month (for all you civilians, NTC is National Training Center in Ft. Irwin, CA...A.K.A..."the sandbox") It kinda makes me wonder if he is going back to Iraq for the third time. They say they are, they say they aren't. I do know that if a unit is going to NTC it kinda means that they are getting prepared for something....what? I don't know.


As an army wife I am prepared for anything. I have plans for what I am going to do when something happens, thats just what a military wife is supposed to do. I can't sit and worry and then if and when the time comes say "Damn, what the hell am I supposed to do?". No. That is not how we are supposed to be.


I think I will enjoy my month vacation with no ESPN, although having two kids by myself, I really don't want to think about at this time. I am supposed to be training for my UHaul job but one of the downloads is giving me grief. Maybe its a sign that I shouldn't be working either for them or working at home period. Lord knows we do need the extra cash.


Speaking of military pay, I am hoping the government (and most democrats) realize that we DON'T make a lot and we are either at or below the poverty line. Hell, we all pretty much qualify for WIC, food stamps, and welfare unless we are officers or married to officers.


Well, hopefully I will find out soon what is happening with us.


Oh yeah, review my post and get paid from PPP and tell me what you think of this!

Subtle? Not exactly

Ya know I get assumed of a lot of things, being crazy (and not in a good way) being passive/aggressive, the list goes on but one thing I lack in is the subtle department. I am more of a "you are just a bitch" outspoken, non-subtle lady. I lack in a bit of tact and it can hurt more than anything because its just the way I grew up.





I am not going to sit and "gloat" unless I say this: "Haha, you are a dumbass because you got kicked off a site"

That my dear is not subtle, in other words....not me.

This is what dictionary.com had to say on the meaning of the word.

adj. sub·tler, sub·tlest

1.
1. So slight as to be difficult to detect or describe; elusive: a subtle smile.
2. Difficult to understand; abstruse: an argument whose subtle point was lost on her opponent.
3. Characterized by skill or ingenuity; clever.
4. Crafty or sly; devious.
5. Operating in a hidden, usually injurious way; insidious: a subtle poison.
2. Able to make fine distinctions: a subtle mind.
3.
1. Characterized by skill or ingenuity; clever.
2. Crafty or sly; devious.
3. Operating in a hidden, usually injurious way; insidious: a subtle poison.


Now, unless you know me in real life, you have no idea what kind of person I am. I am very sweet but I can also be your worst enemy. I stand up for what I believe and sometimes I get what I want. I get talked about by people but I try not to let it get to me, I try and make light of the situation by making fun of the person trying to offend me.



If you know me REAL well, you also know I have a sensitive side. I do get my feelings hurt and do show them. When I show them people look at it like I'm being an oversensitive whack job. If thats what it takes for me to get you to understand my position so be it. I can't change your views of me and I can't make you like me.

7 Years ago today














I married my soldier on June 16, 2001...who knew I would get married at the ripe age of 21. I always thought that that was too young for me, I wanted to live the single life for a bit longer but when this soldier wanted my attention it was too much for me and I fell for him, no money and all! We still have our ups and downs but right now we have put up with each other for so long I don't know if anyone else could handle us! But we do make gorgeous babies I can truly admit to that!

All because 2 people fell in love.....

The weekly featured blogger


This one is dedicated to my good friend Tina. She has been a great friend of mine for...well..ever! We grew up in the same small town and has still been my friend when my dad joined the army and moved us everywhere. I finally got to move back home to graduate with the same classmates I had in Kindergarten. Her blogs are a favorite of mine not only because they are erotica but she pulls you in the story as if you are the one getting pleasured. Her stories are so great and unique and her latest post of "A Soldier in Uniform" is one of my favorites....although I love them all.


If you want to check out her blog on myspace this is her link. I think I'm going to try to get her to blog on a real blogger soon so that way she can generate more traffic!

What Entrecard (meant) to me


I really enjoyed Entrecard but now after being a part of the forums I am seriously reconsidering my place in the EC world. I don't know about the rest of you but being a "newbie" in a forum can be a bit overwhelming. You never know what you can say or what you can't say just in case you piss off another member. If you post something and someone calls you out when you really didn't realize it and you get a little defensive about it there is someone else backing up that person because they have been there longer than you. I have been a part of a few forums that were like that and I didn't stay long. I don't expect anyone to defend me for anything but yes, I will come to someones defense
IF:
The offender calls someone out for a GOOD reason
The offender was being made fun of

I will not defend someone if they call another member a name for something that wasn't even necessary in the first place. I don't expect an apology from another member either because it is just the internet and we may never run into each other in real life. I have done my share of apologies because I know when I'm wrong and when I do get called out on something I will fix the problem not make a big fuss about it and expect someone to come to my rescue.

What pisses me off about forums is that if you don't have a secure place in the forum you are just ignored and treated like a second rate. If someone says things and the "bad" moderator comes in and deletes posts that seem inappropriate the poster gets all pissy and then gets the other regulars against the mod and that isn't fair either. Forums are supposed to be fun and no, they aren't all roses and sunshine but I think its fair to say that we should at least respect each other and be mature about things, I mean we do have PM's for a purpose.

I think that in my defense that what I posted was misunderstood. I did explain myself after I was called out on it, I am mature enough to do so. Its unfortunate that there are not many people like that on the forum. I am lucky to have gotten to know a few great members of the EC forum and drop on them and talk to them when I can.

We all want traffic generated to our blog that is a given. You want your voice to be heard. EC members will make sexy widgets which works (I may decide to do that later!hehe) Some will post in the forums to try to generate, or just dropping works too. I try not to be what is considered a "dropper" but one that comments too. Later on I will post my favorite bloggers but for now I have a paper to write for my college classes and take care of my two babies. I will still continue to blog because its what I truly love to do and if others don't like it that is their problem.

Til later.

Summer in Alaska


Ah yes, the summer is upon us again in Alaska and what fun it is. It doesn't get hot nor humid which is a plus but when it looks like this picture you won't cringe unless of course you know what time it is.

12:15 a.m.

I'm sure its unbelievable for the ones who have lived in the lower 48 and never traveled too north but yep, this is what it looks like and will stay this way pretty much all summer (and night) long.

Army Wives Season 2


Well, I was so anxious to watch the Season 2 premiere after the shock we all had to go through after the last episode of Season 1. I know I was wondering what happened, who got killed, and so forth. It was very tearful especially at the end. I am hoping to see what is going to happen next Sunday. I won't give out any spoilers just in case you haven't caught up with it but a couple people do die from the bomb.

Here is a sneak peek if you want to check it out



I have to say though, its funny when I see comments from the new army wives that think that life is like this show when in reality its a yes and no. Roxy reminds me of the "typical" new army wife and she was freaking out on the new episode because her husband promised to call her when he got to Iraq. Now any military wife who has had a husband deployed knows that he should not have promised her a big deal like that especially one that knows squat about the army. Her character is smart but a little naive, I think she needs to get some lessons from her friends maybe she'll listen more.

I love the drama of this show and even my husband will watch it so ladies, take it from me, just don't let the hubbies know that its on Lifetime and they'll watch..maybe!

Favorite Funny song

Pinay Jade had tagged me a few days ago and I just now decided to post this topic that she tagged me. I'm not really going to tag anyone but if anyone wants to do it thats cool

Do you know of a song that just cracks you up every time you listen to it? I think it would be a cool idea too to just share something funny....so that we could all have a good laugh.

Here are the rules:

1. Post the song/video clip
2. Post the lyrics.
3. Tag others!

Anything by Weird Al is a funny fave of mine. I grew up with him and his songs remind me of hanging out with my family. This one is a fairly new one and it was my husband's ringtone when he called me (inside joke unless of course you know him!)



They see me mowin'... my front lawn
I know they're all thinkin' I'm so white & nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
Can't ya see I'm white & nerdy?
Look at me, I'm white & nerdy
I wanna roll with... the gangstas
But so far they all think I'm too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
I'm just too white & nerdy
Really, really white & nerdy
First in my class there at MIT
Got skills, I'm a champion at D&D
MC Escher, that's my favorite MC
Keep your 40, I'll just have an Earl Grey tea
My rims never spin - to the contrary
You'll find that they're quite stationary
All of my action figures are cherry
Stephen Hawking's in my library
My MySpace page is all totally pimped out
Got people beggin' for my Top 8 spaces
Yo, I know pi to a thousand places
Ain't got no grills, but I still wear braces
I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise
I'm a whiz at Minesweeper, I could play for days
Once you see my sweet moves, you're gonna stay amazed
My fingers movin' so fast, I'll set the place ablaze
There's no killer app I haven't run
At Pascal, well, I'm number one
Do vector calculus just for fun
I ain't got a gat but I got a soldering gun
"Happy Days" is my favorite theme song
I could sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong
I'll ace any trivia quiz you bring on
I'm fluent in JavaScript as well as Klingon
Here's the part I sing on...

They see me roll on... my Segway
I know in my heart they think I'm white & nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
Can't ya see I'm white & nerdy?
Look at me, I'm white & nerdy
I'd like to roll with... the gangstas
Although it's apparent I'm too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
I'm just too white & nerdy
How'd I get so white & nerdy?

I've been browsin', inspectin'
X-Men comics, you know I collect 'em
The pens in my pocket, I must protect 'em
My ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored
Shoppin' online for deals on some writable media
I edit Wikipedia
I memorized "Holy Grail" really well
I can recite it right now and have you ROTFLOL
I got a business doin' web sites
When my friends need some code, who do they call?
I do HTML for 'em all
Even made a home page for my dog
Yo, I got myself a fanny pack
They were havin' a sale down at The Gap
Spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap
Pop pop, hope no one sees me... gettin' freaky
I'm nerdy in the extreme and whiter than sour cream
I was in A/V Club and Glee Club and even the chess team
Only question I ever thought was hard
Was, do I like Kirk or do I like Picard?
Spend every weekend at the Renaissance Faire
Got my name on my underwear

They see me strollin'... they laughin'
And rollin' their eyes 'cause I'm so white & nerdy
Just because I'm white & nerdy
Just because I'm white & nerdy
All because I'm white & nerdy
Holy cow, I'm white & nerdy
I wanna bowl with... the gangstas
But oh well, it's obvious I'm white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
Think I'm just too white & nerdy
I'm just too white & nerdy
Look at me, I'm white & nerdy

One of the worst movies EVER


And I have seen quite a few that make me want to push the stop button on my DVD player 5 minutes into the movie.


Sickness House...I may have watched, eh, almost 10 minutes of it and was bored out of my mind. I thought it was going to be a zombie movie but it looked like I was watching a home movie of someone's disturbed family (not mine for once). The acting was horrendous, the lighting and scenery was very amature-ish. I do not recommend this to anyone who has a working brain. For the ones who want to sleep during a movie then yes, this is the one to pop in and take about a 70 minute nap.


I give it -5 stars.

The Notebook and Collide

A great song and and even better movie! I can't watch this movie without crying like a little girl...I'm such a sap. All girls wish they had a fairy tale romance like this!

Foot in mouth disease


I am sure we all suffer from it.


Me? Well, I could probably be a poster child for it. I am too blunt for my own good. I don't know how I have survived being an army wife for 7 years now without having almost the entire military spouse population thinking I'm a raging overopinionated bitch. Sure, I have my days, we all do. As I was waiting for my computer to load up Entrecard members pages to drop on I was thinking about everything I was going to say and I got frustrated because I wanted to write another post so I'm using hubby's computer til mine decides to load. I'm irritated and I really shouldn't be but since I really love(d) a certain person's blog I can't fathom to go back to it again since I felt very disappointed in them. I want to tell them how I feel but since a) we aren't friends and b) I really don't feel like creating an unnecessary war about something so horrendously stupid, I will just post a blog to help me deal with my feelings. I'm not going on about them or what they said to make me upset but I will say this, I am a pisces so things get to me even if they aren't really worth getting upset about, this has gone on since I was little. I try very hard to not let things get to me but they do and when they do I get the infamous "foot and mouth disease" and tell them exactly what I think. This time I'm just going to let them act like a fool and maybe someone will step up and say "Hey, that was a little harsh don't ya think?" I know I would have said it but I'm not. I think I'm just going to start lurking in forums and not really posting a whole lot.


But yeah, I just let things get to me too much and I really need to stop doing that.

New Pringles flavor! YES!



So what can my 100th post be about? I was thinking about it for a few days then I came across this interesting news article and had to share it with my readers:





This is the "Hey ma, what flavor are these Pringles you bought me?" edition

The guy that designed the Pringles can died May 4th in Cincinnati at the ripe age of 80. His wish was to be cremated and placed in a Pringles can. Now that is another way of being "buried in your work"!

I had the article copied on here but I forgot to put the link back on there so I just wrote how I read a part of it.
