Liquid Sky Lacquer Walk on the Wild Side, Jade Oasis

You guys know how I just love to try different polish color combinations.  Most of the time, they come out great. Today's though, I'm not so sure.

This will be the last post for about a week as it's my birthday in two days and my mom is staying with me for the week.  I'll be taking a short break to do stuff with my mom and go car shopping on my birthday.

I've still got my eye on a 2016 Honda Civic stick in the deep burgundy color.  It's the only color they have right now that even remotely interests me. My only choice is the base model as it's the only one that comes in a stick.  So f*cking sad that the world has lost the love of the stick.

OOH that sounded kind of dirty.............

Although after I spent four hours this past weekend on my hands and knees weeding my long driveway, my legs hurt like hell and driving a stick to work was very unpleasant.  I wouldn't trade it for anything.  It's just more fun to drive a stick.  Shifting gears like a race car driver.

My dad always used to say that I should have either been a race car driver or a truck driver.  Almost got busted by the Man the other day driving home.  I was doing 80mph in a 60mph area and he was out there with the stun gun trapping speeders.  I honestly thought as I blew by him that I was busted, but he didn't get in his car at all.  I wonder if he was out there just seeing how badly everyone speeds through that part of the highway.

All I know is I didn't get a ticket that day.

Oh and if I don't buy a car next week, I'm over due for my annual car inspection.  Remember, I'm always at least a month late doing that as it's just stupid and I hate doing it.

I just went on TrueCar.com.  They have the prices you should be paying for new cars.  The model I want, I should be able to get for about $18,340.  My trade in 2012 sells for between $11,000 and $15,000.  So I figure if they give me about $10,000 for the trade in, I can finance the last $8000 or so and the payments shouldn't be too bad.

Cross your fingers people.  I've always been the best haggler in the world.  One time, mom and I were in the dealership for three hours as I kept walking out when they wouldn't give me the price I wanted. They kept calling me back with a better and better price.

Yeah it sucked being there three hours, but so worth that low price!

I'll let you tell me if this color combo works or not!

This Jade is from Brazil and is not three free or five free.  Let me also tell you it stinks to high hell with its chemical make up.  I could hardly stand it! Although it does make for an awesome holo, it just ain't worth the smell!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Enchanted Polish Holiday 2013, December 2013

Got home from an incredibly busy and stressful day at work and just wanted to lie down and read a book.  That was not to happen as I started to notice my baby Checkers acting funny.  She tried to pee and was crying while doing so.  Not her normal amount came out.  

Then she was whining and acting very different.  She wouldn't purr when I petted her, she was just blah you know? Then she ran down the hall and puked up a bunch of stuff.  She then kept going to the litter box trying to pee and nothing was coming out. Something was obviously wrong and she kept crying and crying.

Those of you who have paid attention, will know that my big boy Sam actually had a bladder blockage a few years back and had to stay in the hospital.  It is a cat emergency.  Also you will remember that a couple years ago, Checkers had a bladder stone and it was right around my fishing trip time of year and I was contemplating not going due to this.

I immediately called the vet as I thought she had a bladder blockage.  She has also been pooping differently lately, but I know it's the start of hairball season.  The vet told me to bring her right in. Ah the joy of Checkers in the car.  

NOT.

She wails the whole time, and she drools and drools.  I'm always terrified she will have a heart attack on the way.  The way to the vet is through the woods on back country lanes.  I only know the one way. Get this, I get part way there and the damn road is blocked, shut down for bridge repair. I call the vet back asking how to get there, Checkers wailing the whole time.  

It stems from when I first got her and she was so sick with a lung infection that I had to bring her to the vet several times a week and they felt she wouldn't make it at that time.  I boiled water for steam and I fed her with a syringe.  She wasn't going to die on me! 

That was when she was seven weeks old and weighed two pounds and fit in my hand. Now she's thirteen and weighs thirteen pounds.  But still my baby.  

Turns out, she has a bladder infection and constipation.  They gave her IV fluid, antibiotics, steroids and stool softener.  $140.  She's worth it.  

She was mad at me when we got home, but after a couple of hours, she reclaimed her place on my head on my pillow to go to sleep.  She feels better this morning, although I have not seen her pee yet.

Those of you with pets, get to know their pee and poop patterns, size, shape, amounts.  It's important stuff to know.

All right.  Today's mani are my kind of colors.  EP Holiday 2013 and December 2013.

Ugh, I just love these colors! Oh and there are two more posts before the nubs reappear.  I seriously broke them frantically getting Checkers to the vet.  They'll grow back.

I did my funky next.

This Holiday 2013 is a deep raisin holo and one of my all time favorites.  It's just gorgeous.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Colors by Llarowe Gemini Rising, Chaos and Crocodiles Black Ops

I was in a green mood today.  I also wanted to wear a polish I haven't worn in forever as it stains like a mother. I decided I didn't care-I wanted this green.  I did two layers of base coat and it didn't stain nearly as bad.

I have work news that you all will love.  I know I said I wasn't going to talk work anymore, but you'll understand why in a minute.  Yes I got in trouble again-had the boss call me out again.  It's getting to the point where I'm just not happy working there anymore.  My new boss is truly awful.

Anyway, that's not what I wanted to share.  There are two listings for positions similar to what I do. Apparently there was a submission put in late last week from someone very familiar with the job and its duties.

Can you guess who?

Yup, Stupid has reappeared.

Now personally, that takes balls to reapply for a job that you left because you didn't want to get off your a** and do a clinic.  I doubt I could do it, but Stupid has.  Now of course, my boss would be incredibly stupid to rehire her, but what kills me more? The other girl who she worked with was gushing about this.  Oh she is such a hard worker and that would be so great if she got the position.

Um WTF?

She obviously has hit her head on something very hard.  She has forgotten all the aggravation she used to cause her, the fact that she couldn't make a decision on her own, the list goes on.  I haven't said anything to her yet as she doesn't know I know.

I was texted this information.

I am going to try to somehow bring up the conversation and remind her of how bad Stupid was at the job and to not let them rehire her.  But really, it doesn't affect me one iota job wise.  I just can't fathom listening to her nails on a chalkboard voice and her plain old stupidness.

On the off chance they do rehire her, I will of course have Stupid stories to share.  I hope however with my entire being that she just goes away.

Now here is one of the best green holos ever.

You bet I stared at this the whole time I wore it! And I still can't believe my nails haven't broken yet!!!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
