See You In Hell!

2005 Sum-up

I know, the year re-cap is a bit spazzy, but it was a rather strange one and come on, you know you depend on Jege for the searing wit anyway. Floyd, I think she is still on vacation or busy with that 'work' stuff and all. AND, in an upcoming post, I will be posing in a shirt you will be madly jealous/proud of.

2005 Highlights (mostly eM--that self-centered bitch!):

  • The Lein sistahs entered the world of bloggedy goodness. Joy of joys! good times.

  • All 3 got new houses and moved, dealing with an unpleasant amount of stress in the process.

  • AmyCita moved across the country to MI from Boston to move into her new home.

  • Youngest Lein chica got a cell phone (pay as you go, not as cool as Jege's razr, but hey, i'm working on it).

  • eM got her Masters, thus rounding out a fam of advanced degree folks and finishing grad school, what a fucking hell that was. Working more than full time and going to school full time=BAD IDEA!

  • eM also got prego (on purpose--WTF!?!? i'm getting old-soo weird going from, ohgodpleaseNOO!!!, to am i? wee!) and, after a fun decade-long stint of lots of fun body-jewelry, is now down to 3 extra-curricular holes - just the ears - removed 7 :( At least tattoos can't get in the way or get infected.

  • eM went to Europe (finally!!!)

  • Amycita got a new kitty--and damn, it is CUTE!

You could always switch your computer's clock to read Jan 1 and eat in front of it...

my theory this year is not to make too much about what happens, but how i deal with it. Otherwise i'd be losing it! We started the new year by coming home at 2:30 am (while prego!! latest I've been out in months!!!) after a relaxing but fun night hanging with friends and our house was 50 degrees. F'ed up. We actually got to bed around 9:45 in the morning after the repair guy came to fix the furnace. Super sucky way to start the new year and at first i was all freaking out that this was just the start of the hell that would be my life this year, but in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't that bad. We crashed on the couch and used space heaters and the kitty for warmth (not burning him, just holding him) and were able to pay to have it fixed.

So maybe the new new years tradition is to avoid black eyed peas? Especially if any "humps" are invovled. Please tell me who i need to kill to remove that song from the world!?!?

SWEET, thank you!! It's painfully evil in so many ways.

hahaha. thanks for clearing up the burning kitty part. i was concerned for that one sentence. :)

and a swell idea for the whole new year thing, but i can't have black eyed peas anymore. i guess i am cursed.

the hump song. you will never know how wrong it really is until you hear your mother (after a couple of glasses of wine) singing it to your father.

ich. ugh.

Crystal, you have seen the posts from Jege and Floyd, haven't you? I really did have to make that clear :)
(not that Jege would actually ever burn kitties for warmth [would kill others who do, most likely], but she does make many wonderful sarcastic comments that suggest she may at some point venture into such evilness).

ewwwwww...ditto on the *shudder*

Kari, Jege and Amy--could you ever even come close to thinking of Garla singing that to Jimbo?? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!

I don't even know that song. I'm old, remember.

Trust Floyd, kittens make terrible firewood. Puppies, on the other hand...

i wouldn't be surprised if jege burned kitties, but you! you're pregnant for crying out loud! i think the smell itself would be enough to make that baby never want to come out.

jege, my MOM knows it. i know you aren't that old. the song - well, she's all - she wants to move her hump and don't touch her hand cuz that ain't her man and she just wants to move her hump her hump her hump her hump her hump. in the back and in the front.

ok. i think you are up to speed now.

is your mom's name really Garla? and your dad Jimbo?

Doesnt ring a bell. How about something by the Clash, or the Beastie Boys?

And Garla & Jimbo are nicknames. My whole family is about nicknames.

Crystal--you have that song down so well! tee hee heee! Had to have my husband read your post too--after reading your post, he sang along..."little girly bumps." I don't even know if those are the exact words, but they very well may be.

We both HATE that song. I played the video for him (online) and his only reply was "what the fuck? does she have some disease?" thus resulting in said bumps and humps?

Oh, and Jege, she's the one dating Josh Duhamel of Minotia fame (I'm sure your friend knows that--dad said you got a hat from the restaurant when you were home for him).

For others who haven't seen/heard the insanity: go here and click on the 'My Humps' video. Shudder.

I watched the video. And now I feel no shame that I didnt know who the fuck these people were. They obviously suck. No wonder I stopped buying new music. I think my most recent purchase is Beck's Odelay.......

Sounds like hte Lein Girlz 3 had a pretty good 2005! Continue on into 2006, ladies :)

Oh, kittens make HORRIBLE firewood unless you stop giving them water so that they have a chance to really dry out. Cat POOP, on the other hand, is nature's perfect fuel!

Scoop them turdies outta the litter box, scrape em a little to get the extra litter off, put em on a cookie sheet, and bake for 50 minutes at 425 degrees. You can also bake at 300 for 4 1/2 hours if you have the time.

Crockpots don't work--the turds remain too moist to become good firewood.

Ron Popeil's Showtime Rotisserie and Barbeque is PERFECT. Skewer the turds on the kebob stakes. Then just "set it...and FORGET IT!"

Oh, and if you don't have a cat? It works on your own poop, too.

I know what you mean about getting pregnant on purpose. I'm trying to do that, but it is messing with my psyche because I still feel like I'm going to get in trouble or something. I'm 31, I think my mom will be ok with it. hee hee

Yup. I went through that too, paisley :)

It's like, how the hell can we buy a new house and have a kid--i'm only fiiiiiiivvvvvvvvve.

Of course, i'm not, i'm 28, but still. it feels really strange.

Good luck!
