gonna make u sweat

Since this will be the last post of the year I thought I would take a look back at the year gone by and make goals for the next year.

Then I decided that idea sucked. I did have a semi good year...some good things that happened..

* I didn't die
* I was fired from one job and quit the other one
*My kids are still alive and bugging the shit outta me
* hubby is going to sew me some curtains and a pretty sundress

some shitty things that went down

* The Prince show I went to in July started two hours late
* I broke my ankle but did get some nice drugs
*my grandpa died.

yes, that sums it all up for you hoodlums.

If you missed my tail of Christmas and how my house nearly caught on fire and how I witnessed a suicide...well scroll down cause your in for a treat.

~
In the meantime I am going to share a few mishaps from last week.

Last Wednesday as I preparing for karaoke night, I run down to throw my best black sweat pants in the dryer, they are my WED night karaoke pants for Gods sake..

I toss them in and start the dryer...only my dryer refuses to start...

So I do what any desperate gal in need of dry trousers does..

I dry em with my hair dryer.

As of today our dryer has officially kicked the bucket, luckily our laundry room came equipped with clothes lines installed, so now we are making use of them...Nothing like a nice stiff towel to rub your delicate wet spots..

Then my tree...my nice ole Holy Christmas tree...

I put 106 strands of lights on it, half white, half blue..

Seems only blue are working now....so for the last 5 days my tree that started out with a nice holiday glow, now sort of looks like a smurf puked on it..

I am taking all reminders of the holiday down ASAP. I have about about enough holiday cheer...

~

I went today and bought a game for the hubby's new Xbox 360. I bought Dance Dance Revaluation..Oh its so awesome..It took me a while to get the hang of it, but holy butt nuts, its pretty swell. I started playing it and the next thing I know 2 hours have went by, the kids are sleeping and hubby is upstairs watching the telly..

So that makes two addictions for me...I wonder if I can hold a mic and dance at the same time..I could kill two birds with one stone.

I was reading the warning on this game. I have never seen a video game come equip with warnings..

* u must use your bare feet, or your stupid
* if you have any medical conditions in which prohibit you from normal exercise, don't use it...or your stupid.
* don't use this if your under the influence of drugs and or booze....

although that would be a kick ass time...

~
I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year...

here were my goals last year...this is right from my blog post last year..

*watch more tv

I don't think I succeeded in this goal...there are no good shows on anymore


* stalk def leapprd thru 3 states instead of 2

I did this, I did this...yeah me

*find Pat

Yup, found Pat...he/she was hiding in my suitcase if you recall
*buy a new PAt should I not find the old one

didn't need to....


*spend at least $2000 on concert tickets and stalking equipment...this is scaled back from 2006, i realize I don't need as much as I thought, cuz I am cool like that.

yup yup...nailed it


*Lose 80 pounds. I am trying to get down to my orignal weight..7lbs 13 onces

almost....if I keep dancing I will be at my starting weight of 7lbs 13 oz...


*sell shit on ebay....and start collecting welfare.

well, I started getting unemployment..does that count?


*write a screenplay....for the funniest movie u will never see.

i have started one...................yeah..
*learn how to write said screenplay

nailed that one too
*quit 2 of my day jobs....

i did that and then some...
*keep the house "liveable"..no need to keep it clean...trust me I know.

who needs it liveable anyway?
*buy some stocks and bonds

ok, i did.....so what


*shave my legs daily..not bi-monthly

yup....
*join a cult

damnit, I knew there was something I forgot..


*learn to play the violin......or get a violin....

double crap...forgot about this one too....
that about sums it up I guess.

so, no sense in making anymore goals, because we all see I cant be trusted with that again.

Happy New Year peeps....C-ya in 08...

Avery Gray said...

You give me a happy heart! My resolution this year--kick Zelda's butt on the Wii, kick Mario's butt on the Wii, and drink more water. That last one is the token resolution I make every year.

Have a great hiatus!

Jamie Dawn said...

Happy Nude Year.. I mean New Year to you too!!
You've had quite an eventful year, and I have NO doubt that 2008 will be just as interesting.
I think 7 lbs. 13 oz. is a bit too thin.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Working MOm,
I have heard people losing weight with it, but they must be really good at it, cause I barley break a sweat..ha

Lucy,
thats what I was thinking toooo..

Avery,

Sorry to hear you broke your ankle though, that double sucks! I have had some ankle troubles today...should have known better trying to run 2 days ago just because the weather was nice.

And I am laughing hysterically here because you have pants just for karoke!

Flip Flop Momma said...

I have karaoke attire for week days and weekends, I tend 2 look more stampy or adultish when I meander on weekends, on Wed, its my black sweatpants;)

I sing in style;)

IamDerby said...

Happy New Year FFM! Sorry to hear about your dryer... I hate stiff towels (and pants and sweaters)

JoeInVegas said...

Well, we can start a cult of our own or I can send over those two guys in short sleeved white shirts and skinny black ties, backpacks and bikes that show up rather regularly. They are always trying to save me from something. (at least I call it a cult)

Flip Flop Momma said...

Iamderby,
HappyNew Year 2 u too...I am wearing a stiff towel on my head as we speak..

JoeinVegas,
YES YES....send them right away...I wanna be saved from soemthing too;)

Vani said...

i've wanted to try that dance game, does one need to have any type of coordination?? or does it teach you to get some?

Cliff said...

Dead fish eh. I always say you're never too young to learn how to kill a fish. The kids will soon learn. You'll be able to officiate at the funerals.
Funny stuff C. You're the best. New Dryer yet??

Foster Communications said...

If you write that screenplay I will so go see that movie! It would be hilarious!

flea said...

hahahaha glad to see you survived the holiday season! Thank god it's over for another year

Miss 1999 said...

"I didn't die"-- I'm glad ya didn't-- I'd miss your crazy ass if you did! :0) Anyway, on a serious note, I hope that you have a safe and happy new year with many blessings! *hugs*

Kelly said...

Happy New Year!

1 plus twins said...

hope you and your family have a save and happy new year!

Wendy said...

I will be dancing tomorrow night on that damn thing while using drugs and alcohol...okay, just alcohol but the other sounded better. Hopefully I won't break MY ankle!

I think we should all join Katie's cult. My sister was in one once...deprogramming was a bitch!

Happy New Year to you too!

Doozie said...

so the suicide you witnessed was of the fish in the previous post?

I appreciate that you accomplished at least 3/4 of your goals. I don't have goals. I'm a loser.

No_Newz said...

You really need to catchup. All the cool kids joined cults the year the punch was passed out. :P

Happy new year sweet cheeks!

nora said...

Happy New Year!
Stop by Chez Pez for a NYE party. You can sing for us.

Rachel said...

Sorry the poor fish overboard died anyway. It happens.

Glad you had a good Christmas.

The dead dryer is not a good thing. Hope you got it replaced. Those fluffy towels are much nicer!

You achieved many of your goals this year. I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year!

Michelle said...

Great work.
