The cure for a week of shiz

My sweet friend,

Sorry you had a bad week. Things will stop sucking soon. If not, I will have no choice but to get my ass on a plane and come kick some serious throatage. You know I got some big blingy ass stilettos. And fabulous legs.

We will dominate the world. All others quake and tremble with fear.

And remember....

You are forever my home girl.

Love you,

How I'm feeling..... Cleo Style

So.... I am super nice. I help peeps all the time. I do good deeds. A lot. Ask Chopsie, he will tell you that I am indeed a gem. I would add the word "precious" to gem, but that's just me.

I am tired of stupid, mean people who have nothing of value in their lives. People like that work really hard to make nice people like me want to CUT them. A lot of times.

Luckily, as you will find in the previous post by my BFF Gingie, I am fairly awesome.

So the fact that this song describes how I'm feeling should explain how mean people are and how sick of dealing with them I truly am.

This song was introduced to me by some sweet and dear friends here-to-for known as Evil and SusieQ. They hate people with me. I heart their guts.

I HATE EVERYONE ('cept y'all...)

Oh and BTW---- Tyrants are mean. Just so ya know....

Leave My Bitch Alone....

The greatest of people can find a way to laugh in your face while you are trying to belittle them. Annoying isn't it? Well, you've messed with the master. You can call her a bitch and say she has low self esteem, but at the end of the day she's still smiling and you've spent your entire day trying to think of ways to break her. Ain't gonna happen. And makes you sort of pathetic and a bit of a loser. So take your lame excuse of an existence and do something useful....kiss my blinged out ASS!!

Thank you and Have a FABULOUS day. I know I will.

Our Sweet Ass Trip to Vegas Documented...Musically

I've decided that it is just down right wrong to not spend your birthday with your friends in a place where you can act like a complete fool and still fit in. I got to go to Houston and hang with Cleo and Chops for mine so it was only fair that Amberd got to spend some time with me for hers. So, we loaded up the sweet ass Intrepid and headed to Vegas. We had maximum funage, with minimal damage. That's all you can ask for from Vegas, right? Here are some of our favorite songs and most memorable quotes from the trip.

"BUUULLLLSHIIIIT!!!" ~ Black Man Drinking Whiskey.

"Would you mind laying properly on the bed?" ~ Crazy British Dude.

"You're a bit boring, aren't you?" ~ Crazy British Dudes Friend.

"Ummm yeah...Could you please tell your friend to stop biting me on the neck? Thanks." ~ The one and only...Gingersnaps.

Stuck in 1984

My oldest sisters's mother, my dad's first wife, died giving birth to my sister. My dad remarried my mother a few years later and went on to have 7 more kids with my mother. My parents treated us all equally when we were growing up but my paternal grandmother always had a soft spot for my oldest sister. I never minded as a kid. I thought she was pretty special too. She was the oldest and the coolest of us by far.

So what does that have to do with music? My sister was into music. She was the coolest person I knew. So logically all cool people were into music.She was the only one with a cassette player and my Grandma would buy her cassettes so if we wanted to listen to music, we listened to hers. I didn't mind. I loved it when she shared her music with us. Her friends would come over and sit and listen and hang out. Luckily for me, most of her friends were girls and they thought I was adorable so they let me hang around with them while they braided my hair. (Shut up, I was 11 and pretty girls wanted to play with my hair. Like I was gonna say no). When I turned 11 my Grandma bought me a radio and I would stick it under my pillow and go to sleep listening to the Dr Demento show and trying to figure out which songs my sister's friends would think were cool.

Every month my Grandma would take the "Older Kids" out to something together. At the time that meant my oldest sister, Christy, my brother Mike and me. She would take the three of us out to dinner, maybe a movie, or my favorite, goofy golfing. The place called Castles and Coasters. It was just a miniature golf course with an indoor video arcade but it was COOL. The main building was a giant castle with 4 stories of arcade games. All the cool older kids went there every weekend to just hang out and be seen. We were pretty poor so going anywhere was a big deal to me, but to hang out with my sister and brother without all the rest of the little kids made me feel pretty special. And there, walking around with my sister and brother, the coolest people I knew, away from the chaos of our house, is where I felt the happiest. One of the happiest memory of my entire childhood is standing underneath the lights on the ninth hole at Castles and Coasters on a warm summer night with the coolest people in the world and something by Culture Club or Thompson Twins or The Cars or Bananarama or Laura Branigan playing over the loudspeakers. So thats the kind of music I like. The kind that reminds me even a little bit of what it felt like to belong and be happy and feel young

My musical tastes were set in stone back in 1984. I cant help it. They evolved a tiny bit over the years. But I still like best those songs that remind me the most of what I loved first.

Gingers Pick of the Week....Florence and The Machine

You can use Wikipedia just as well as I. And quite frankly, all I care about is the music. I think Florence is brilliant. Love her voice. Here's a few of my faves...

"A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes. I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind. The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out. You've left me in the dark. No dawn, No day. I'm always in this twilight. In the shadow of your heart."

"This is a gift, but it comes with a price. Who is the lamb and who holds the knife. Midas is king. And he holds me so tight and turns me to gold in the sunlight."

And my favorite...

"My boy builds coffins he makes them all day. But it's not just for work and it isn't for play. He's made one for himself and one for me too. And one of these days he's gonna make one for you."

How fantastically morbid. I love it.

Cleo's Pick O' the Week- Neon Trees

I usually prefer Neon Tigers, but I am digging these guys! I had a thing with a guy in high school that had a eerily similar haircut as the lead singer.

Here are some deets:
Neon Trees is a rock band from Provo, UT, with origins in Southern California. Formed initially by neighbors Tyler Glenn (lead vocals/keyboards) and Chris Allen (guitars), the band made its first home in Provo, eventually adding Branden Campbell (bass) and Elaine Doty (drums/vocals) to the lineup. The band's music is defined by its emotional energy and honest desire to get people on their feet, evoking comparisons ranging from newer acts like Bloc Party, The Strokes, and The Faint, to more classic artists like U2, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, and Bruce Springsteen.

Check 'em out-

I think I'm in love...
