* if I cussed, I would be cussing now …

Posted on February 6th, 2010 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.

Holy cow batman … we got heisted by the spam devils!  I have no clue what happened or how it happened but let me put it this way … I have been offered more viagra, cialis and ambien in the last 12 hours then I even knew was available (my question here would be, is it really possible to enjoy the intended purpose of ambien and viagra at the same time? Stupid spam isn’t even logical).  All functions of the blog were completely inaccessible for about 2 hours last night, the spam was flying in faster than I could delete it.  It did not make for a very chipper blog host.  Finally, I called Thad and he talked me thru my near meltdown turning off the comments completely in order to delete the ones that were already there.  That part was simple, it was deleting the 1652 that were already there that was a complete pain in the patootie.  But alas … it’s gone and things should be back to normal.  If Cathy and Margie happen to read this, please leave some sort of comment so I can make sure I haven’t sent your comment approval status to the bowels of spam hades, your comments from yesterday somehow ended up in the middle of all that mess. 

Now, moving along to much more pleasant things … it’s time to announce the winner of the lovely picture frame.  There were only 6 entries, so I headed over to mr. random number generator and he picked #2.  Which just happened to be my lovely oldest daughter.  I considered not letting her win, simply because she is my child and then decided that wasn’t really very fair to her, she can’t help I’m her mama (although, I’m sure there are days she wishes she did have another option).  I can tell you, it will look very nice in her compartment. 

Today, I am spending the day making good use of the new fabric I purchased when I fell off the fabric store wagon the other night.  I’ve also been doing all kinds of reading up on quilting and may some time in the future give that a whirl, I haven’t decided yet.  The last time I tried to quilt something, I was about 12, my grandmommie had to unstitch the quilt from my pant leg … didn’t work out so well for me. 

Tonight, we are having company over for spaghetti and wii night.  I think we may also purchase the UFC fight … cause we just don’t have enough violence at our house on a regular basis.  Remind me to tell you the story of how I nearly let my children mame eachother one night during a wrestling match in my den.  It was pretty ugly.  Yeah, I’m that kind of mom, kids make for good entertainment when you’re poor. 

Come on over and join is if you arne’t busy … if nothing else you get free food and a good laugh or two.
