Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding

I am not a huge reality TV fan, well unless it’s Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List.  I didn’t like all of the Real Housewives shows because I just can’t take the drama.  I have a low threshold for people screaming at the top of their lungs at each other.

I did watch and love a few of the Real Housewives shows though.  I didn’t watch the first season of Atlanta, but I did see a few episodes here and there.  I do love Kim Zolciak though because, well, she looks like a real life Barbie doll.  She has beautiful hair, even though they are all wigs, but can I just say that I love her without her wigs too?  She has a rack that won’t quit, yeah I said it, I know I’m gay but I would motorboat that shiznit.

When I heard that she was going to have a reality show based on her preparations to marry hunk of the century Kroy Biermann, I had to watch.  I loved that it had a little bit of drama in it, but I hated that the drama came from her mother.  I know mothers are supposed to be a little crazy, but I mean come on this woman took the cake.  She stole Kim’s thunder as her last act of crazy.

If you didn’t see it, here is how it went down.  Kim’s mother and I guess her sister, Kim’s aunt, decided they had to go use the bathroom, but they refused to use the porta potty that Kim had paid $6000 for.  They figured they were too good to use a $6000 toilet so they had to break the rules just to take a piss.  They went to the door to the house and the security guard told them they had to use the porta potty and they got high and mighty with him and screamed “I’m Kim’s mother and this is her aunt” and “I will burn down this house if I have to!”

Seriously?  They couldn’t just use the porta potty?  I mean, I saw the porta potty that they rented when they looked at it.  It was bigger than our bathroom AND it had an attendant to boot!  She is too good for that?

So while they were in the bathroom upstairs, they were trash talking Kim and Kroy.  I mean what nerve!  They break the rules then go and trash talk the bride and the groom and act as if they are gods.  Then she finds out that the police have been called to escort them out so she goes back to the party and tells people that she is being kicked out and she doesn’t know why.  When someone asks her where Kim is, she says “She’s behind all of it, with Kroy.”

Really?  I mean this woman is a liar, manipulator and an instigator.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Kim never spoke to her mother again after that.  Watch the video.

OMG I am just so thankful that I never have to go through that, not marriage but having a mother to act like that at my wedding.  Especially when it’s on TV!  UGH!

But Kim and Kroy were calm, they didn’t make a huge deal about it ruining the whole night.  They showed them cutting the cake while her mother was being escorted out, I’m sure it was edited to look that way, but who really knows for sure.  Their wedding was a success and the whole season was fun to watch and I’m glad I didn’t miss it.

Now, let’s get back to me boycotting weddings until gay people are allowed to get married shall we?  LOL

Kathy Griffin Has Inspired Me

I knew that if I read Kathy Griffin’s autobiography about her life that I would learn a thing or two about how to write an autobiography.

Sure, I could’ve chosen to read a book from someone who was gay bashed by bullies and their own parents (which is the main focus of this book) but well, frankly, I couldn’t find any.  And actually, Kathy’s book is the perfect choice because she was bullied in school and she was almost molested like me.  Although our situations are different, their not too far apart.

In fact, they are pretty much the same except she was only kissed by a 28-year-old when she was 13, I was lead around the house with my balls being held onto tightly when I was 15 before being tongue raped by a 50 something year old ex-prostitute woman who was my mothers best friend.  Great, I just told you the whole story, now what incentive do you have to read my book?

Well, it’s not the only story but at any rate, she has given me more confidence in the way to structure my paragraphs and even adding pictures and other graphics.  Although, I won’t be using a tiara.  Maybe…

I haven’t finished her book yet but I have two-thirds of the book to go.  It’s a very interesting read if you get a chance to pick up a copy or buy an e-book version of it.  Even if you don’t like her you will find her book easy to read, heart breaking and hilarious all at the same time.  I laughed, I cried, I screamed in pain because I passed a kidney stone while reading.  Ok that last part wasn’t true but I did cry for her pain and I laughed at her jokes.

So now that I’m inspired by her writing, even though I’m not finished with her book I feel more comfortable to continue writing at night which is usually when I have more energy to write since I have insomnia.  Why I get energy late at night I have no idea.  It just happens that way.

My New Leg Injury

I’m sitting here in my room reading “Official Book Club Selection, a Memoir According to Kathy Griffin” on my Nook and I hear the ice cream truck. Darrin hears it too and he tells me to go stop him. I opened the door and saw he’s already across the street, he says run to stop him.

I’m in my bare feet and I’m running and waving like a maniac. They aren’t looking in the rear view mirror either. I think they get off on that.

I pass about 6 houses and figure they aren’t going to look in the mirror and they are driving the same speed that I am running which means, I have to pick up speed to catch up.

That’s when it goes horribly wrong. I pick up speed and just then “POP” my left calf makes this popping sound and I can feel the pop too. Crack one of your knuckles, that’s the popping sound that I heard.

I immediately had to stop because my calf tightened up, sort of like a Charley horse. Not only could I not continue running but I can’t even walk, heck, I couldn’t even stand up straight. My left leg hurts like hell when I have it straight like my right leg. The only way my leg is comfortable is if it’s lifted up in the back, like I’m on crutches. The tendon is tightened so that it hurts when I straighten my leg out.

I look towards our house to see if Darrin has come out of the house to come to me as if I had stopped the truck and he sees me bent over and I used a sort of sign language, as if I’m mimeing like I’m driving a car but rocking the wheel too far to the left and right. That was my way of saying, get in the car and come get me.

He’s not coming and I’m standing there with my leg bent back, I can’t go anywhere but I start hobbling towards the house. I saw the white car coming around the corner and he stops at where I’m at and opens the door and I painfully got in.

He drove to where the Ice Cream truck is because I’ll be damned if I hurt myself in vain. He gets our “Mama Flip” ice creams which is soft serve in a cup with chocolate syrup and sprinkles.

We come home and I’m not only about ready to throw up but I’m also about ready to pass out. He goes in the house to get the crutches that we have had since his mother broke her leg in 2000 and I go in the house with the intentions of laying down with some ice on it with hopes it will get better. It’s not getting better.

I went to WebMD.com and looked it up and it tells me to immediately go seek medical help so we went to the E.R. where I sat for about 3 1/2 hours waiting for them to call me. After 1/2 hour I told Darrin to go home, I’d call him. No sense in both of us being bored and losing internet time lol.

The doctor couldn’t do an emergency MRI or even x-rays but he bends my leg back and forth and moves my foot and he gives me his diagnosis which I couldn’t remember (remember that I have a learning disorder?) but all I can say is he thinks I must have torn a muscle which is what I figured out right when it happened.

He tells me to rest and put ice on it for 15-20 minutes several times per day for the first 3-4 days then after that replace the ice with heat. He also gave me a prescription for Motrin and a muscle relaxer. I can’t say the name of it because I can’t read his writing lol. I have some ibuprofen from when I had the neck and shoulder pain so I can take that until we can get to the pharmacy tomorrow (followed by Subway or Panda, you know, while we’re there lol).

I have to report to my doctor in the next 1-2 weeks to let him know what happened and maybe perhaps get an x-ray or MRI done if it’s still hurting by then. Oh and I get to be on crutches for a while too which in a way is a good thing because now I don’t have to take the dog out, I can’t if I’m on crutches (wicked evil grin).

Unfortunately, I can’t count on Darrin to do the dishes for me and when I make dinner he’ll have to bring it to me. If I leave dinner up to him we’ll be eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a while. Or soup, he loves making soup lol.

I was afraid I would miss my shows but when I got home it was some hometown sports show plus the Closer is on tonight instead of my Sunday night Fox cartoons. Oh well, I’m glad I didn’t miss them but it would’ve been nice to know they weren’t going to be on so I wouldn’t have been stressing about miss them during my 3 1/2 hour wait time lol.

Anyway, so I’m off to go rest and ice my leg.

Colbert Testimony Before Congress (House Subcommittee)

Stephen Colbert testified before congress about immigration and people were not amused at all. Although I found his speech hilarious, I do find that it was a waste of time for congress. He could have just put the skit into his show and Congress could’ve watched it from the comfort of their homes or offices.

People are saying he is making a mockery of the congressional hearing, well, wasn’t that his point of being there? He was asked to be there by the congresswoman that he mentioned and later she said that she didn’t know he was going to be in character. Come on, he’s StephenColbert. If you know anything about him it’s that he’s like Lady Gaga or Kathy Griffin, always in character.

Again, I found it hilarious but that’s just me. What do you think?

Money Saved for ebook Reader

I officially have the money saved up for an e-book reader. Although I can’t really buy it yet because I have to make sure we have enough money for food for the next 2 weeks before I can spend the money I am saving. I have to get my priorities straight lol.

So I’m leaning towards the Amazon Kindle. I wanted to get the Nook because of its color screen but heard how slow it is and it’s not worth my time. I don’t need little icon book covers to make me happy.

I didn’t want a Kindle because most of my e-books are in pdf, .prc, .lit, .mobi and .epub format. I know you can read pdf files on a Kindle and I’m ok with not being able to use the dictionary I guess. I probably won’t have that feature with a Nook with pdf files anyway. I don’t really care for a Sony because I don’t really care about library books, oh and I don’t care about lending books with Nook as I have no friends with a Nook anyway lol.  And the Nook, Sony and Kindle stores all have pretty much the same prices for e-books anyway so store options don’t matter.

So, Kindle it is. But, again, I have to wait until I get my next check to make sure I have the money and then some.

Although I still have a lot of regular books in paperback and a hardcover book coming that I won from GetGlue.com. No not the zombie one, they offered me another one. But when I do get the Kindle the first e-book I will buy will be the first Sookie Stackhouse novels books 1-8 despite it’s hefty $55 price tag. I say hefty because it’s paperback version is only $35 so I’m over spending on it. Although, who knows what I will do. I’m unpredictable lol.

Oh and I’m going to also buy the Kathy Griffin book “Official Book Club Selection” and her moms book Tip It. Although, those 2 in e-book format are expensive so not right away.

After those then I will start buying the charmed novels and maybe more buffy novels. I have a few in paperback but not in order. Also there are star wars novels and star trek novels, let’s see, supernatural, smallville, roswell… too many to list. Let’s just say I’m going to be pretty busy. Oh and that’s not including all the books I plan on buying from Rainbow ebooks too lol.

Will I have enough time to read all these books that I plan on reading?

I do have a LOT of e-books on my computer right now so I’m not exactly sure how much money I will be spending on e-books right off the bat because I will be converting all of them to Kindle format so I can finally read them. Yes, I have a lot of unread e-books waiting for me. So the only money I’ll need to spend right away is on the Kindle then I won’t have to spend any money for quite a while until all of my current books have been read.

Ah the life of a book-worm.

Update: Ok so I was wrong, check this out.  The new kindle has this –  Enhanced PDF Reader – With dictionary lookup, notes, and highlights.  That’s perfect!  That’s all I wanted to know lol.  Now the Kindle IS my choice to buy.  Cool, now I can buy all .pdf files anywhere and transfer them over to my Kindle.  This way if one store has an e-book cheaper than Amazon then I can buy it’s pdf file.  And I can buy Rainbow ebooks in all pdf file formats and not worry that I can’t read them.  Awesome!

Kathy Griffin and Levi?

kathyleviKathy Griffin is all a twitter about Levi Johnston.  You know, Bristol’s baby daddy.  She has been blogging about spooning with him and even saying she is pregnant.

I love you Kathy Griffin.  You are so funny.  She just loves to hook up with someone who is constantly in the spotlight so that she will be in the spotlight (aka tabloids).

Anybody who is a big giant fan of Kathy Griffin (like ME) knows that she loves the attention so if it takes hooking up with Levi for some attention then you go girl.  Although in my opinion and in many other peoples opinions, she is already off the D-list so she doesn’t need to hook up with Levi.  I’m sure she could get George Clooney if she tried.  Or she could try and steal Brad away from Angelina just like how she took him from Jennifer.  Hey it could happen.

Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List is over for the season and I can’t wait for the next season to air.  In the meantime if you would like to pre-order her book Official Book Club Selection click the link to visit her website and order it through Amazon or Barnes and Noble (BN).

Better Than Me?

In the season finale of Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List, she was getting a star on the Palm Springs walk of er… fame?  She was visiting Suzanne Summers and they were walking through her “organic” garden and Suzanne was basically beating up Kathy for drinking diet sodas.

I know it seems that in all of my posts I’m talking trash but I’m not telling anyone that I’m better than they are because I have TONS of faults.  I’m not perfect, nobody is.  And people who eat healthy certainly are not better yet they act like they are better than everyone else.  Vegetarians too.  They act so superior because they don’t eat meat and you are such a horrible person for eating a hamburger.

It’s arrogant for anyone who eats organic or vegetarian to think that they are better than everyone else and to me it just shouts douchebag alert.  When I saw Suzanne basically making Kathy feel bad for sneaking in diet soda at her party it made me cringe because she has no right to tell anyone what they can and cannot drink.  It’s like the arrogance of Christians for telling gay people they cannot get married.

Wow, how did I sneak that in there?  LOL

Edit: I have to make a correction in this post.  Ok 1st, it was wrong for me to say douchebag alert.  And 2nd, a person does have the right to say that you cannot sneak something into their house because it is “their” house after all and if they don’t want something in then you shouldn’t bring it in.  Talk about arrogant.  I was being arrogant in both cases.  I truly am sorry.
