This is the only time that winter is fun.

My friends and I are planning a get together to go sled riding soon, which reminded me of what happened when we went last year.

There is this park near my house that you can go fishing, camping, swimming, hiking, and biking at. In the winter, they rope off the ponds and make this huge hill a sled riding hill. They keep a fire going and serve hot chocolate and tons of people come out to play.

First, every single one of us was hung over. (Sorry Dad) We had had a bit too much to drink the night before, but no one would admit that they were too sick to sled ride. Remember Fill in Boyfriend? Well, he was the first to go down the hill. On a round sled.

Needless to say, he spun the whole way down the hill. When he reached the bottom, he rolled off of his sled and proceeded to puke everywhere.

That was enough for me. I decided that I would simply be the photographer.  Hubby agreed with me.
Taking a picture of Hubby taking a picture

After watching them go down the hill a few times, I get a tap on my shoulder. Two of my friends that I had invited but didn't think would show up were standing there. I hadn't seen them in a long time and they don't live around here so we don't get too hang out too often.

They both immediately admit that they had never been sled riding. I handed them my sled and told them to have fun.

I watched as they walked up the hill and then waited their turn to come down. They both got onto one sled and stormed down the hill at a speed that would have probably made me shit my pants. Then they hit a bump. The bump sent them flying in the air, but they landed back on the sled. Safely.

Or so I thought. At the bottom of the hill, where I stood safe with my camera, they both got up. One was holding his hand over his mouth, and then other was holding her hand over her nose. Trails of bright red blood hit the snow as they made their way towards me.

Evidently, when they hit the bump, the girls face had smacked into the back of the boys head and made her nose bleed. His head had hit the handle on the sled and made his mouth bleed.

The girls walks up to me, hands me the sled and says, "No thanks."

We had to go inside and get them all cleaned up. We finished the task at hand and the boy thought he'd give sledding another try.

Halfway down the hill he crashed into another sledder and nearly broke his arm.

They left after that. We stayed and ended up having a lot of fun. Even though most of us ended up at the bottom of the hill sipping on hot chocolate and watching strangers risk their lives.

My Wings

These are my wings.

To me, they mean I’ve grown and they mean that I’m free.

I got them after it took me three years to realize I was in an unhealthy relationship. After, I realized that most of my relationships were unhealthy. Even the relationships I had with my family. I was angry. I was bitter. I was very unpleasant to be around. Ask Dad. He didn’t even want to be around me.

I didn’t realize it was bad until the end. It honestly didn’t take me long to recover. It was as if a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I smiled for the first time in a long time. I laughed until I cried and cried until I laughed. I met up with old friends who welcomed me graciously back into their lives. My family wanted to be around me more. I liked myself.

I didn’t worry so much anymore. I didn’t depend on anyone. I was free. I could breathe.

Does looking at my wings remind me of my ex? No. They remind me of how far I’ve come. How much I’ve grown up. They remind me to let the little things slide and not take everything so personally. They remind me to never be dependent. They remind me that I can do it all on my own if I need to. And I did just that for years. I took a lot of time to find myself and I liked what I found.

But most of all, when Boyfriend runs his finger across the lines so carefully inked into my skin, it reminds me that everything happens for a reason. Every door that closed, every bump in the road, made me exactly who I am today. They made me the woman that he loves. They made me the woman that people like to be around.

My wings mean that I am free to be whoever I want to be.

Caller's Revenge

Most of you have read some of my phone conversations at work. Well, yesterday, I believe karma came back around and bit me on the ass.

Me: Blah Blah Coal Company. How may I help you?

Caller: Is this Blah Blah Coal Company?

Me: Why yes, yes it is.

Caller: Well, I’ll have you know that you guys are a bunch of thieves.

Me: Oh yeah? What did we steal?

Caller: You stole my grandfather’s land and his money.

Me: *sighs* We don’t steal land. Or money, sir.

Caller: I know you did. And you buried him. And after you buried him, you stuck drugs up his ass.

Me: Drugs up his ass? We have drugs? Wait, is this a joke?

Caller: No it is not a joke. I also believe that you are hiding gold and diamonds that are rightfully mine.

Me: What is your name sir?

Caller: John Smith. My grandfather was Jim Smith.

Me: Ah, yes, Jim Smith. He sold his land to our company a long time ago.

Caller: He didn’t sell it. You stole it.

Me: Um, I don’t think so.

Caller: You know, I really hope you know that the entire coal industry is going to Hell. The Bible says 'You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another.' (totally had to look that up to get it word for word) You guys are a bunch of thieves. Have you made friends with God?

Me: Are you threatening me?

Caller: I wouldn’t waste my time on trash like you.

Me: Ok, then don’t call here anymore.

Caller: Can I have the number to your corporate office?

Me: You may not.

Caller: I’ll find it with or without your help.

Me: Without.

Caller: How much do you get paid?

Me: That’s not really your business.

Caller: I bet you have so much money you don’t know what to do with it. They steal from people like me and give to people like you.

Me: {Laughing}

Caller: It’s not funny.

Me: Seriously. Is this a joke? Are you from the real estate company?

Caller: Can I get directions to your office?

Then I hung up. He was getting a little too weird for me. Seriously guys, I can’t make this stuff up. He called back like three times, but I just let it ring. He didn't leave any messages.

And the winner is....

Is everyone as excited as I am to see who the winner of the giveaway is??

Between begin followers, commenters, Twitter followers, and mentioning the giveaway on your blog, there were 61 total entries. According to the order you commented, I put you all in a spreadsheet. Then I went to and generated a number.

Who was number 25? Hmmmm.

Teresa at The Middle Side of Life! She had 6 entries herself by mentioning the giveaway on TWO of her blogs and being a follower and commenter.

 Teresa, be sure to email me ( your information and I'll get your scrapbooking kit sent to you ASAP!

Ok thank you all that entered. You made my first giveaway so much fun! I will be back later (maybe) for a real post.

Giggle, Wiggle and Jiggle

Apparently, not many people watch Heroes, but I still did have some votes on last week's poll. It says currently I have 6, but I could have sworn yesterday it said 10. Oh well. Peter Petrelli and Hiro Nakamura tied for the win. I personally love Peter Petrelli. Not only because he has THE coolest power ever, but because of this.

Seriously, Google, you need more photos of this man shirtless. Thanks.

 See my point? Yummy.

So I have a challenge for you my lovely readers. Please email me ( or comment with some new poll ideas. Some people can't relate to the polls at all and I want some that everyone can enjoy! For now, no poll.

Also, Sam won the Giggle Button trivia this week. She answered, What's the name of the game played by Harry Potter and his team mates on broomsticks? Which is Quidditch. A lot of you knew that actually...Sam was just first. Make sure you click on the Giggle Button!

Now for my weekly recommendation!

Life's Journey With a Smile

And not just because she created Jumble Mash's new banner, but also because she is super sweet and her blog is an excellent read. Go check her out!

Don't forget! Today is the last day to enter the giveaway! Winner will be announced tomorrow.

Oh Dear

Dear Gushers,
    I'm in love with you.

Dear Fuel Company,
   It is a pretty well known fact that people are going to need fuel to heat their homes in the WINTER. Please stop using the excuse that there is too much snow to get your trucks out to deliver said fuel.

Dear Amazon,
   You are the greatest invention. Ever.

Dear Netflix,
    You are the second greatest.

Dear Genie,
    I would like to revise my three wishes. 1.) I want to be rich 2.) I want to be happy and 3.) I would like my dog to speak and understand English. This would make things so much easier.

Dear Friend,
    I am very happy that you have found a new boyfriend and that he makes you very happy. I do not however need to hear about every sweet thing he ever says. Even if it is his Facebook status.

Dear Boss,
    YOU were told to clean up the office. Not us. Please stop delegating tasks to everyone while you sit on your butt.

Dear State Farm,
    If I should get into a car accident, sing your little jingle and you do NOT show up, I am going to be pissed.

Dear Coal Protesters,
   Stop trying to ruin my life. While saving the environment is a good thing, ruining the livelihood of most of Appalachia is certainly not. Let's compromise?

Dear Puppy Mills,
   You suck. Fucking stop it.

Dear Blogger,
   I have a love hate relationship with you. Can you please just do as I ask and stop formatting my posts in the way you want them? Start your own blog if you'd like. Let me do mine.

Dear Jumble Mashers,
   Are you ready for the trivia question? What's the name of the game played by Harry Potter and his team mates on broomsticks?

As always, first to answer correctly chooses who goes on the Giggle Button this week!

Insert Foot in Mouth

As most of you know, I work for a coal company. Well, there is this older gentleman that is like super rich because he owns his own coal company and he comes in every now again to meet with our sales department.

Pretty much every time he comes in he stops and chats with me. He is a really nice guy and we kinda have to kiss his ass because we profit from him.

Anyways, the other day he comes up to me and asks how I am doing and what not. We exchange pleasantries back and forth and then pretty randomly he says, "Do you watch any reality television?"

Me: I watch American Idol, but I really don't get into anything else.

Him: Oh. Have you ever seen The Bachelor?

Me: I used to watch it when it first aired, but it got old. It's so repetitive and I'm definitely not a fan of the guy on there this season.

Him: Why don't you like him?

Me: Just things I've seen and read. Seems like a jerk to me.

Him: Well you should check it out tonight if you get a chance.

Me: Why?

Him: You may find it interesting.

Puzzled, I agreed to check it out, mostly because I was curious as hell.

So that evening, I flipped through the channels until I found The Bachelor. And then, my mouth dropped.

The dude's daughter was a freaking contestant! And she was like the main part of the show! Do you all watch it? Emily is to whom I'm referring. He gave her a rose and she's moving onto the next round. Her story is actually pretty incredible, and everyone that works here knows who she is. I've never met her, but holy crap, I see her dad all the time.

I don't think he'll stop by and see me anymore.

Oh, Samantha.

I had another interesting phone conversation yesterday that I thought I'd share with you guys.

Operator: Would you like to accept a collect call from Samantha from the State Penitentiary?

As much as I didn't want to, I hung up. I figured taking a collect call from prison might get me into trouble, and I can promise you that I know no one by the name of Samantha. I stared at the phone for minute, really wishing I could have answered it, but then went about my business.

Five minutes later, the call comes in again.

It was fate, obviously, so I said yes.

Samantha: Hello?

Me: Samantha! What did you do now? I have told you time and time again that you cannot prostitute yourself in this state.

Samantha: Who is this? Where is Mom?

Me: What do you mean? I am your mother.

Samantha: No.

Me: Oh my God. You are on drugs, aren't you. I knew it.

Samantha: I think I have the wrong number.

Me: That's not funny.

Samantha: I'm sorry, but I don't know you.

Me: That's a really stupid way to try to get out of trouble, Samantha. I am not bailing you out this time. I'm done.

Samantha: No, there is some sort of mix up.

Me: You really think I'm going to buy that?


That was fun.

Trivia time!!! Kind of an easy music question.

What rock star was trying to bite the head off a bat in concert when the bat decided to bite back?

First to answers correctly chooses who goes on the Giggle Button this week!

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Happy freakin' Monday. I seriously despise Mondays. And Tuesdays for that matter. I didn't sleep well at all last night. Tossed and turned and had some weird freakin' dreams.

I did have an awesome weekend though. I got to meet my little sister's new boyfriend who is very very nice. Little sis on the other hand is very very mean. He said something like, "I don't want to wait until Thursday to see you." She looked at him and said, "You will freakin' live." And then he would say something really sweet to her, and she'd say, "Oh my God, shut up." I think that was due to embarrassment.

She is a feisty little one.

Dad's birthday dinner went really well. He LOVED the gift I got him, which was a Knight's Templar sword for all of you that wanted to know.
Make sure you sure you guys stop by and wish him Happy Birthday today! And since it is his birthday, I have a story to share with you.

Many moons ago, while visiting Dad in Alabama for the summer, *males may want to cover their eyes* I got my period for the very first time. My mom was all the way back in West Virginia.

So I had no choice but to tell my dad. That was embarrassing enough, but oh, it gets better.

Dad was very cool about it and said, “Okay, no problem, let’s just go to the drug store.”

We got in the car and conversation was scarce, but I did eventually ask him if he wouldn’t mind buying them for me because I was too embarrassed to go through the checkout line.

Cool Dad didn’t even hesitate. He agreed and I started to feel a little better.

So we get to the drug store and walk down the aisle with like 7,000 different kinds of products for situations such as these.

I stared up at the shelves not having a clue what to get. Dad wondered away from me a little as I stood there dumbfounded. I kept peeking over my shoulder and making sure no one was looking at me.

Then, from the other end of the aisle, my very loud Dad yells, “Get these ones with wings. I bet you they’d work better.”

My face instantly turned red. I nodded and he picked them up off the shelf and proceeded to the check out line.

Of course, a young teenage boy was working the register. Dad hands him the um.. sanitary products and says, “So if they have wings, does that mean they can fly?”

The cashier looked directly at me. I know my eyes went as wide as they could go.

Dad continues, “I’m just asking because I know nothing about this kind of stuff.” He was enjoying it way too much. The sly grin on his face told it all.

The cashier, probably just as embarrassed as I was, said, “I’m not sure sir, I don’t know too much about them myself.”

“Is there an instruction manual I could buy?”

That’s when I left. I stormed out of the store and waited beside the car. He came out of the store laughing. I snatched the sanitary products from his hand and got into the car.

“Jeeze, you were so much more pleasant to be around before you entered womanhood.”
Happy Birthday, Dad!

Pink Shadow

So some of you may have no interest whatsoever in this post, so feel free to skip it. BUT for those of you that do care, DC Universe Online released Tuesday. And it is AWESOME. Okay, so some of the mechanics suck, like the camera, but all in all its amazing.

It's a massively multiplayer online game (MMO) like WoW, except you get to play around with super heroes. Or villains, whichever you prefer. Mostly, I just wanna show you my character.

Isn't she awesome!??! I'm totally not in love with the name, but I got tired of looking for a cooler one, so Pink Shadow it is! She has Mental Super Hero powers, she can fly, and she packs two pistols around. And she has pink eyes. And black high heeled boots. And awesome cleavage.

Making the character was half the fun. You can even choose different skin tones. Like you hero could look like a leopard if you like that kinda thing!

Also I want to give a HUGE thank you to The Empress from The Ranter's Box for giving me this award!

Ok, I'll shut up now. By the way, this classifies as a Half-Assed post.

Giggle, Wiggle, and Jiggle

So I was absent yesterday. Did anybody notice? We got one hell of a snow storm so I stayed home from work. Then I realized that the snow storm has wiped out my internet service. I was stuck inside all day with no internet. But at least I didn't have to work.

Anyways, speaking of having a day off, last week I asked you guys what your idea of weekend fun is.
I'm with the other 54%. I like to stay home and relax. Hanging out with friends came in a close second, which is fun, too. In the summer time, I do more than stay home, but for right now, when I get home on Friday evenings, I like to stay there until Monday morning. I'm a hermit like that.

For the new poll, the question is Of the following, which is your favorite TV show? Poll is over to your right. Please vote!

Danger Boy was our Giggle Button winner this week. He answered the question Who said, "I can't believe I gave my panties to a geek?" The answer was Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles. Make sure you go see who he has chosen for the Giggle Button! I will tell you, that he did not pick himself!

Today I recommending to you...

She makes me laugh often, and I'm sure she would have the same effect on you. Go check her out!

P.S. I guest posted over at Dad's place. Be sure to check it out, too!

Let's compromise and call it soda pop

Steph over at Forget Me Not did this awesome vlog that I swear to you I tried to do but I couldn't figure out how to operate the damn web cam to make a video. *Sigh*

Anyways, there is a list of words that you have to say to see how they sound in different accents. Like I think she says caramel funny. Hehe. But there also a list of questions that I can answer without you hearing my accent.

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
I call it toilet papering.

What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
Rollie Pollie.

What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?

What do you call gym shoes?
Tennis Shoes

What do you say to address a group of people?
Hello group of people. No seriously, I usually just say "Hey Guys!"

What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
Granddaddy Long Leg

What do you call your grandparents?
Pappy and Grandma

What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
Rain. I didn't really know there were different names for rain.

What is the thing you change the TV channel with?
Remote, although I do know a few people that call it channel changer.
I know Steph doesn't like it when people say "pop" in place of soda. I went to see my cousin in New Jersey one summer and I asked for a pop and she punched me. Not cool. When I lived in Boston for a couple of years, I was talking to a class mate about my Pappy and she was all "What in the world is a Pappy?" And then in the same conversation I said "bathing suit" and she had no clue what that was either. For all of you that don't know, bathing suit = swim suit.
Anyways, everyone should totally do the vlog so that I can hear what you sound like, but if you're like me and can't operate a damn camera or just don't want to, feel free to tell me in the comments what you call these things! I find it very interesting.
Trivia Time! This week its movie trivia. As always, the first to answer gets to go on the Giggle Button for the week.
Who said “I can't believe I gave my panties to a geek”?

They come in waves!

The lovely Thisisme over at Southhamsdarling gave me an award!
Stylish? Me? I'm not sure about that, but thank you so much Thisisme!

Apparently, the number of people I pass it on to is the number of things I have to tell about myself.

I would like to pass it on to four blogs that I absolutely LOVE.

Jess at It's a Big Deal, It is to me!
Amy at Life's Journey With a Smile
Mynx at Dribble...
A Bitch Called Mom

Now four things about me...

1. I would take 10 tattoos over a single piercing any day. I think piercings are terribly painful and I hate them.

2. I was a pharmacy technician for years and as soon as I got my National Certification which allows me to put CPhT at the end of my name, the coal company hired me. I haven't been employed as a technician since but I do still keep my certificate up to date.

3. It's January and I already have 3 Save the Date cards for weddings this year.

4. When I retire, I wanna live in Celebration, Florida.

Half Assed Weekend

Simple Dude has pretty much handed me handed everyone a permission slip to half-ass their weekend posts and it be okay. So thank you for that Simple Dude. This post is going to be so half-assed, there won't be anymore words.

Life is Good

Man, this is my weekend! I received another award today! Granted, it was from my Dad and he may be a little biased but I'll take it. Dad is super funny and has a great outlook on life. If you haven't already, stop what you are doing and go take a look. I'll wait.

Back? Ok. Where were we? Ah, yes, the award.

Yes, Life is definitely good.

There are rules to this award.

1. First, thank and link back to the person that gave the award.(Check)
2. Answer the 10 survey questions
3. Pass the award along to other bloggers whom you think are fantastic.
4. Contact the bloggers you have chosen to let them know about the award

1.  If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this?  If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?  I am anonymous for the most part. Only a few of my friends and family members know of Jumble Mash. I like it that way mostly, but sometimes I wish I would just tell everyone. I'd love to just post on my Facebook about new blog posts. Maybe some day.

2.  Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.  I don't think I really hide my stubbornness and there are probably a lot of incidents that prove that, but one thing that really sticks out is that I always have to have the last word in an argument. 

3.  What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?  I normally like what I see. I mean, I wish I still looked like I did in high school...but I'm comfortable in my skin for the most part.
4.  What is your favourite summer cold drink?  Sweet Tea Vodka and Lemonade
5.  When you take time for yourself, what do you do?  Blog, play Xbox, read, play video games, play on my iPad, take hot baths, nap, and shop.
6.  Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life? There are a ton of things I still want to accomplish. But my goal at the moment is to finish getting my degree.
7.  When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching? Hmm, I was never an overachiever or a class clown, but I wasn't shy either. So I'd say just an average student? I don't know. I did ditch a lot my senior year, but then again so did almost every senior.
8.  If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?  Um I don't really know. I may have to think about this one for a while.
9.  Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?  I have no problem sharing my true self. I don't exactly wear my heart on my sleeve, but all in all I'm a pretty open person.
10.  If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?  Read a book for sure. I normally dread talking on the phone. 

Now to pass it on. I don't know how many I'm supposed to choose so I'll just pick a random number.
