Back to the drawing... tablet?

What do you all use to post with? Just your desktop and/or laptop? I bought a Kindle Fire hoping I could read blogs and comment through there, but I haven't been able to find a decent app to use to post with. I know I have one on my iPhone, and I ordered an iPad 3 so I can use it on there.. Once the damn thing finally gets to me.

Soooo I was just curious, what do you all use? Have you found good apps for both reading blogs and writing on your own?

Speaking of apps that don't help me, have you all tried the Draw Something app? It's basically Pictionary. My niece told me to download it. She was all excited because she wanted me to play and she's addicted to it. I mean, for those who have been around here for a while, you know I can't freakin' draw! And I'm supposed to do this on an iPhone with my finger no less. Okay...

Needless to say, I downloaded it... Tried to do about 3 or 4 different things... And deleted the app. Maybe I can fake my way through the game on an iPad.. with a stylus? I doubt it...*sigh*

So what games have made you feel incompetent or that they are smarter than you? And don't forget to tell me how you roll with your blog.. Tablet? Apps? I figure the simplest thing is going to help me get back to blogging on a regular basis.

Friday Foolishness - 2/3/12 edition

For those who are new around here, on Fridays I like to do Friday Foolishness. It's basically a post for me to mention some crazy random thoughts I've had over the course of the week... Or in this case, several weeks since I haven't done this kind of post in a while. In case you missed it, I gave you a taste of the type of thing that's involved last night when a guy at McDonald's really got under my skin. It's a quick read so check it out here...  Go on and I'll wait for ya. I have to mix up some cocktails for this evening anyway.

Speaking of cocktails, my frickin' ice maker is possessed. Possessed, I tell ya! Some days it works just fine. Then it will give up on life for a couple of days like it forgot what it was supposed to be doing. You're a frickin' ICE MAKER! You only have ONE job. You would think you'd have it perfected. How am I supposed to make these.... ?
Without these....??
Call me crazy, but I can't stand a warm drink! Even wine.. It has to be well chilled for me. I almost had to kill the fridge last week when it stopped working on Friday. Seriously? Friday night?! Ugh!

On another note, I was watching the top 50 country videos of the 2011 year. "Red Solo Cup" made the cut. Really? Now, I'll admit the song and video are kinda cute, but there weren't 50 videos better than that this year? That makes for a sad year in music. For those who have no clue what I'm talking about, here's a link.

I got a kick out of my neighbor the other night. His daughter got a dog that looks something like this...
She's probably 3 or 4 pounds of little "yip yip." I think Bailey is convinced she's a squirrel or something because she acts like she wants to kill her ever time we see her outside. Anywaaaaaaayyyy... I see the big, tough guy neighbor outside with the puppy in the yard one night trying to get her to come back inside. He keeps going, "Hey!.. Come here!" I just had to laugh because I knew he was doing everything he could NOT to call this dog by her name, and I said as much to him. The reason being... The dog has the unlucky honor of being named Sparkles! Now why would anyone let their daughter do that to the poor dog? I mean, I'm not a teeny dog type of person, but even I know that is just asking for the dog to get her ass kicked at the dog park.

So of course, I had to point it out to him.

Me (chuckling): You just can't bring yourself to call that dog by her name, can you?
Tough neighbor guy: (nervous chuckle) Uhhh... Yeah. If she would just listen...
Me: Well, either change her name or get used to her not listening. Because if you don't use her name, she's never going to mind you.
Tough neighbor guy: (miserable look on his face as he looks down at the dog) Yeah, I guess you're right.
Me: So you'd rather her just not listen, right?
Tough neighbor guy: Something like that..

We both laughed and went back inside. I don't blame him. I don't think I could call the little thing Sparkles either!

So is it drink thirty yet? I've had so much fun coming back to the bloggy world this week. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Step out of the vehicle please!

You should not be allowed to drive a big freakin' truck if you can't park the damn thing!

Whose reality is this?

There are many things in this world that make me wonder about people. I don't watch many reality shows because for the most part I think they are stupid. For some reason, I decided to watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last season, and before I knew it I couldn't turn away. Now I know why some people can't stop themselves when it comes to this crap. It's addicting to watch these train wrecks continue! (Read what I wrote about some of last season here.)
Right now, they are done with the second season and stirring everything up on the reunion episodes. It actually looks like they are causing more hurt feelings than there were in the season. What kills me is when they all say that Russell never showed signs of abuse in front of them. (For those who don't watch, he's the reality star who committed suicide last year, and it was revealed that he had been beating his wife, Taylor.) Really?... Seriously?.. I noticed in the first season when Taylor Armstrong was at events that he was all about controlling the situation and making sure she had NO fun at all. He was especially big about going against what she wanted and making her leave before she was ready. Did this not give anyone hints? And that Brandi person? Oh, I just won't even waste blog space on that crazy wench.

Anyway, I got so tickled watching the Beverly Hills women in all their insane glory that I thought I'd check out the Real Housewives of Atlanta which is just starting its new season. Holy crap, those women are involved in even more drama! Someone please put on some regular TV and quit with these reruns lately so I can claw my way out of this reality drama!!
Seriously??? (Source)
I will say the only reality show I have watched religiously is Big Brother. Although I get a bit aggravated that they are getting dumber and dumber contestants while thinking all we want to see is hot bodies. Not that I will deny having eye candy on the show deters me from watching it. Just sayin'.... I just wish they would go back to the original format where EVERYONE got to vote and they got to see everything that was done in the house before making a decision. This "jury" thing is for the birds.
So what reality shows do you all watch, if any? Why do you like them? Has this "so-called" reality stuff ruined TV for the rest of us?

Is the Zoo still open?

Helloooooooooooooo, to my beautiful Zodiac Zoo Crew! It has been so long that I bet you forgot that's what you're called, huh? I mean, I see I've lost some followers, and that's my fault. But I'm back and ready to get back in the swing of things.

I must say I have missed you all and your blogs. It's a bit confusing to me how I ended up making LESS time for my blog after I finished school, since I was juggling work, school, and the blog before. I wish I could say it's because I got a snazzy new job with my degree, but that is not the case. All in good time, though. I have high hopes.
I can't wait to read all about what you have all been doing in my absence. I see it wasn't dusting and cleaning up around this place! Phew! I think there are still remnants of the last Zoo party around here. Ahhh, I miss the Zoo parties. I bet someone has one going on around here now that I'm missing. Eek! 
Okay, that picture is more than a little disturbing, which is why I had to show it. You all missed me, didn't ya? Admit it! :) 

So, let's see. What do you need to be filled in on since my last post? Actually, not a whole lot of life-changing type information. I've been busy with work and family things, but luckily no more tragedies since the horrible last summer we had. And yes, I am quickly knocking on wood as I type that! 
I bought myself two of those lucky bamboo thingies after the summer our family had. The real shocker isn't that we've been okay, but that I've managed to keep the plants alive. Need I remind you of the mums? No, I won't post that pitiful picture again. 

Soooooo, I'm back and I'm not going to abandon you all anymore. I realize how much I miss doing this and how big a kick I get out of reading your comments and your blogs. You all make me smile every day, and I need that back in my life. 

Plus, I figured today was a good day to start since it's freaking cold outside so I am definitely not looking for any reason to do anything outside. But mainly it's because I missed you guys... mostly. 

I really want to thank all of my followers who stuck around in my absence. You all are the greatest! It will be worth it, I swear. Now I am off like a prom dress to go check out what my peeps have been up to. 
Have a great week!
