Yeah the long weekend is here...................

It seems that I may have caused some inflammation of my Achilles heel tendon. Well after a quick Google search, seems to fit. Until I can see the doc I wont really know......and I don't want to see the doc...I was only there on Monday!

I was at work this morning, and I stretched my calf muscle like I have been asked to to by the physio, my physio who last time I saw her tortured me and I paid her for it! Now either I am completely bonkers or she is on to something, but it appears that due to my back issues of the past year, my muscles have tightened and shortened and that is why I still can't put on my own bloody shoes and socks. So I must stretch the crap out of them, my legs, not my socks.... so at work I did. While I was fussing about doing my work, I would occasionally remember to give a little stretch, and by the end of my shift I was in serious pain, so much so that I couldn't pop much weight on my right foot.

So I have no idea what I have done at this point. I was just glad to be going home so I could get the hell off it. But in my expert medical wisdom, I thought all I needed to do was walk the cramp out...................WRONG!!!  I think I just made things worse.......

What is this month anyway.........HURT ANKLES / FEET month?? I seriously didn't need to join the pack!

Resting it now with an ice pack.  I hope it heals before Tuesday.

It isn't swollen, so that's a good  sign I hope?

My goodness it hurts! Long weekend means no doctors, so I can't get it looked at till Tuesday.............Tuesday when it's back to school.....43 bloody degrees, and I have 3 back related appointments. Hopefully it will be cured by then, or they will adjust something and magically fix it........... If not I will have to call in sick, and that is going to hurt my bank account seriously.......I can not afford any more time off.....ESPECIALLY fees.....back to school expenses.....paying off Christmas...........

I did open up a new bank account...... a Christmas and things we want fund. It may take a while, but if I didn't physically set aside the cash, it will always go into bills, and food!

So not looking forward to schools return.... These holidays have been FABULOUS! Either the kids have been better behaved generally, or I have been more relaxed.......either way the thought of lunch boxes, school runs, notes, is just depressing me! I need a few more weeks..........

As I mentioned here in Australia we are gearing up for AUSTRALIA DAY!

So right now people are shopping like crazy, buying meat for BBQ's, and stocking up on household items because the shops will be closed for 1 whole day! It never stops fascinating me how the thought of a supermarket being closed for 24 hours, sends a panic message out to the the masses?????

I am glad of this public holiday, as I now have 2 days off instead of 1, and I hope that this bloody foot will be back to normal by the end of it so I don't have to mention it at work at all.

Yesterday, hubby brought to my attention the subject of DOLPHIN RAPE!

My world is shattered....

Dolphins have been known to rape below...... all I can say is ... NO FLIPPER NO!

I watched a brilliant movie a few weeks ago called "ABOUT TIME" , just go see it. Just beautiful. I laughed, I is now in my top 10 favourites.

I have also been looking into my PCOS condition. New starts....I want to loose a bit of weight to help my back along. So I discover that rice may be not super good for me.....or pasta...or bread......I AM GOING TO STARVE!

It was suggested as an alternative to rice, to make CAULIFLOWER RICE....

So I did, always keen to give something new a try..... It was actually nice. I added Zucchini, carrot, onion, garlic, and chives to mine, and a hint of cheese.

But a neat way to bulk up without the risk of turning all that carb into sugar, which is my enemy.............BUT I LOVE far I have not killed off that addiction.

 It took just as long to cook as rice, and I was the only one who liked it, but I will definitely make it again.

 This morning while hubby was up helping me with my shoes at 5 am, he starts telling me that he can see a future where men will replace women with robots. Robot women who look like us, and can do what we do without and I will quote "ALL THE CRAP"

I pointed out that blame for the human condition is on both sides. Not all women are manipulating, gold-digging, sex-withholding, judgemental bitches, as not all men are  lazy, selfish, rapist - wankers. Some people are good and some are bad.

Inside I was getting really upset. Some men are lonely because they don't help themselves at all in getting a girlfriend.....same as some women.....but you can't blanket statement it all into black and white. 

He kept saying I wasn't understanding him.....but all I could hear was "WOMEN CAN BE REPLACED" by manufactured perfection, and who can compete with that!

Maybe I am just too tired, too hormonal, or sensitive about my weight, and back, and IBL when I cough too hard, and grey hair, chin hairs, and FUCK I COULD BE REPLACED! I am not PERFECT.

As I walked out the door, mad as hell, because in my mind I am telling myself, I have always given this man my world. All I ask for is regular sex, and I don't get it, so how am I now responsible for the women who fuck men over? 

He smiles and says ...... " I would never replace you, never!"

"GOOD!" I snapped "GLAD TO HEAR IT, but the way you are talking I can't be to sure....I AM GOING TO WORK"

In the car, I just meltdown..... CRAP, I just displayed perfectly a good reason for men enjoying the company of robots. A robot woman wouldn't have been so offended by the notion......... FUCK!

 Do you do this...I think up all the clever things to say after the fact? That was me at 6.30 am driving to work, listing a diary of past mis-deeds of imperfection, that I could have thrown in his face. I didn't, and I wouldn' one is perfect. WHICH IS MY POINT!

I also reason, which is a good thing. My hubby would love that EVERYONE could be in love and have someone. I would too. I am convinced the world would be a better place.

Men and women are different , yet the same, and we are certainly loosing the art of effective communication, if indeed we ever had it, but we definitely do not have it now, generally speaking.

He works with a few young boys who are just lovely people, would make good partners, if only they would try. One such young man has tripled in weight. He sits at home playing computer games, and only comes out to go to uni, and work. He rarely speaks, and trying to have a conversation is painful. Even when you are talking about something he is really into.

WOMEN LOVE TO TALK. His shyness, which is with both men and women, is not our fault. People have tried really hard to befriend him. He just shuts down. Hubby seems to think that these bots, which are life like, and scary, Japan has been playing around with this idea for years now....would be a perfect solution to a guy like that.

YES, it would. He could safely interact, it wouldn't judge, be happy to full fill any sexual need, and never nag, get sick, or complain. But is this really going to help? I can hear men saying YES..........the perfect woman...........we can turn her off and on at will. YUCK.

It is a sore subject with me...I hate the thought. It unsettles me, as I see many dead beat wankers, and many stuck up bitches in my day, but I also see many lovely people. Men like new things, toys, and they don't like to look at themselves much. They keep it simple, and to some degree I like that bullshit free style. But they are far from PERFECT, and a lot of their carefree attitudes actually start some of the issues we women then become accused of having. 

CAUSE and EFFECT.......that is what I am saying.....

Maybe I am getting my periods, but this topic really ticked me off.

But I do tend to fret. Maybe I should suggest he start a topic of conversation with "I would never replace you......", that might ease the dragon.....?? I can definitely see that my own thoughts and insecurities manifested here. Along with the half asleep, too early to talk about such deep and profound things...

ENOUGH of the foot is hurting so I need to go now and pop it up and ice it again...... So I shall leave you with some happy / sillys.....

Thank you for listening.....I have hit the 8000 mark now so I am stoked. 

THANK YOU xxxxxx

 "On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed. This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed.
Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he’d be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he’d been earning, and therefore, they were financially ruined.
Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of steady deposits and interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank.
She explained that for the more than three decades she had ‘charged’ him for sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments.
Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and blurted out, ‘If I’d had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!’
That’s when she shot him."


  1. Hold on a second, you've poked your head in over at my blog how many times and didn't know about dolphin rape!?! It's half of my content. Dolphins will rape anything. There's a video of a dolphin raping a dead fish head. And there's not just one video, it's a phenomenon. Dolphins also get high by sucking on the poison of puffer fish. Dolphins are messed up.
    Hopefully your foot feels better soon. Do you at least have pain medication or some pain relieving substance?

  2. Oh no, I haven't seen that before. No, flipper can't be that screwed up. (Criss crawls into a dark corner and starts humming to herself. )

    It's like the monkey raping that poor little frog. Nature is so wonderful. I have heard that if a female dolphin isn't in the mood, and won't put out, the males gang rape her.

    I guess there is good and bad in everything. Lol

    I do have drugs enough to handle pain. Not too bad after 2 days rest. Still limping, not sure yet about work, I will judge on the day. Thank you for the well wishes. I am really over the body not working right. Lol

  4. Dolphin rapists? Egads! What's the animal kingdom coming to? First there was a flea crawling up an elephant's tail with rape on his mind.....and now this!

    Having said that, I hope you find relief from your pain soon, Criss.

    1. WHAT! RAPIST FLEAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

      Thank you, slowly on the mend, lower back playing up today because I have been limping, but the foot is feeling much better, especially after it's been rested. ^_^

  5. Criss,

    You wrote about a panic message being sent to the masses and everyone out buying things before the shops are closed on Australia Day.

    Having snow is a rare event in Alabama, but a Winter Weather Warning is in effect here starting today and lasting through tomorrow, with sleet, freezing rain, and snow in the forecast. Yesterday I heard that our local Wal-Mart store was jammed with people buying things like crazy.

    I have an appointment for an eye exam just at the time the heaviest snowfall is predicted. I may cancel it because people here don't know how to drive when snow and ice are on roads and it may be too dangerous to go.

    1. I wouldn't trade the heat for the snow at all. I would die trying to drive in that. I don't blame you at all for not wanting to go to your appointment given the weather and road conditions of the day.

      We are bracing ourselves for another heat wave. Today was hot, but we have been blessed with a lovely cool change tonight, so I have opened up the house and I am letting the cool in in. The kids are all in bed, and it is so peaceful. I am sitting here listening to the light wind, and the sound of my wind chimes, and the cat who just now has come in demanding attention. lol

      I am off to bed now. I am hoping this foot behaves for me during my shift. It has healed much, but I still get the odd twinged.

      Night, and stay warm ^_^
