Conversations with Clairey

Last night, as I was lying in bed with Clairey:

Me: How was your day? Did you have fun?
Clairey: Yes, we played outside. It was a beautiful day.
Clairey: I'm sorry I lie sometimes.
Me: What? Where did that come from?
Clairey: Nowhere. I'm just sorry that I lie sometimes.
Me: Did you tell a lie?
Clairey: No. I'm just telling you.

I will beat your children

Why are little boys such shits? I swear, I'm going to beat the ass of every boy-child that comes within arms reach, and then i'm going to teach my girls to beat their asses, too. Maybe it's just the age...when do they start to be little pricks? 6? 7? How long does it last? Even my stepsons displayed the whole, "We don't want to play with you" (towards the girls) last time they were here. But since they're now partially mine, I can withold food from them, so they straighten up pretty quickly. I can't dig my claws into every boy though.

Yesterday, Jenna had her "musical theatre" class. You know, the class that's going to make her a "rockstar"--so she thinks. She brought along Pico, Pico Rivera. Oh yes, he's still around. After class, she looked forlorn, so i asked what was up. "A boy told me that Pico was ugly." (picture)
"Yes. A boy said, 'your dog is ugly.'"
"What did you tell him?"

Now, this is Jenna we're talking about--she's the sensitive one. Claire, on the other hand, would have clocked the holy hell outta that kid then kicked him in the ribs, all the while chanting, "Who's ugly now, bitch?!" and rubbing Pico's ass in his face. But alas, Jenna would never do such a thing. So I said, "Jen, I'm sorry that that little boy said something ugly to you, but some people just do that. Next time someone says something to you that is not nice, just say, 'Whatever,' and turn the other way." Of course, that's not what I WANTED to tell her, but "Kid, you're nothing but an asshole" would never come out of her mouth.

That thing would tear into a tomato

So, who in this joint has a "PedEgg?" Do you know what i'm talking about? This:

(First, i must give props to Zoot: http://www.misszoot.com/, as she's the one whom brought this up.)

The commercial grosses her out, but for good reason. It actually shows someone dumping their "foot shavings" onto some fabric. Yeah, that IS disgusting. "Foot shavings"...that's just nasty. The commercial also shows them rubbing the damn thing on a tomato, saying, "it's just so gentle." That, my friends, is pure bullshit. That "egg," if you will, is sharp. I won't let my kids play with it. Steak knives, yes. "PedEgg," notsomuch.

I will say, though, my heels are like a baby's ass. But not as stinky.

I am SO handy

Yeah, there's a little bit of Suzy-homemaker in everyone. Check out these little dresses/outfit I made Clairey:

Shorts and a halter shirt

My favorite: The fruit dress (with matching headband)

Another dress, with a back shot

And, finally, the ladybug dress. Jenna has a matching one.

She lost ANOTHER tooth. Pretty soon, we're going to have to get this kid dentures.

What else? Oh yes. The IRS is sending me more money in May. The pool guy is here fixing our pool pump. That money I just mentioned? GONE.

My car will be 3 years old in June. It just turned over 27000 miles this morning. Pretty good, eh?

Enough already

I've been working for the same company for 8 years. Doing the same thing.

I started in 2000, quit in 2005, and started contracting for them directly after. I've had enough. I need a new client.
