Remember the window breaking at the beginning of the week on Monday last? Well...turns out it was the beginning of a three! Yikes!!! Let me update you on what has happened since.

Number 2.

While taking Chad's rental car back from a business trip last Thursday, I was rear-ended by a pickup truck. It was pretty bad. I never heard him hit his breaks and it was a good thing I had my seat belt on! I was in a long line of stopped cars at 135th St and Switzer and luckily far enough behind the car in front of me that no damage was done to them. Phew!

So there's another view... I was pretty dazed at first. Especially when
I called the police. At first I said I didn't need anybody to look at me, but by the time Chad got there I realized that I could hardly move and was in some real pain. The officer said the EMTs would come and look at me and I could decline going to the hospital. Funny thing is, they never gave me the option. LOL! They climbed into the car, asked some questions, felt my back and started strapping on a neck brace and the next thing I knew they had the flat board and stretcher out! And with that I was strapped down and had my first (and hopefully last) ambulance ride. Man am I glad I had on clean undies! Actually, I had on a long sleeve undershirt, my favorite, and I was terrified they would cut it to start and IV! It sometimes seems like they'll start and IV for anything...but, no worries, my shirt is in one piece!

Anywho, got to the hospital and they asked a bizzilion questions but of course I was still discombobulated. Had to stay in t
he neck brace until I had a C-spine CT scan. All good. Diagnosed with bad whiplash and released with some meds and a VERY bad ache. I'm FINALLY getting to the chiropractor today. Can't wait!!!! So, yeah...that was, well, that was what it was and certainly isn't over since the adjuster still hasn't come to look at the car yet!

Number 3.

Oh, they say a picture is worth a thousand words and doesn't this just do it? This will be Indy's second trip to the vet in two months. In case you're keeping track, in June he jumped the fence and was hit by a car, miraculously walking away with only a limp for a few days and some scrapes. But puppies and boy puppies especially, will always find trouble it seems. And Indy found it in the window he and his big sister, Scout allegedly broke earlier in the week. Admittedly, Chad and I did not do the best of job fixing it rig
ht away but Indy and Scout were determined to see their rabbits and nothing would block their view, including our temporary fix. In the process of ruining that, Indy sliced open his left front toe, bleeding all over the house. So off to the vet we went...again.

He ended up have to have at least four stitc
hes since he lost blood supply to part of the skin. He had to stay overnight and thank goodness for that because with the pain I was already in I don't think I could have dealt with sick dog too. And of course he came home the next day in the Cone of Shame and a bandage he managed to take of the next day. I've put one on each day since and it tends to stay on about six hours max. Now today we have to go in so the vet can put on a new one. Great, we can pay again so Indy can take it off again tomorrow!

Here's a pic of Indy's stitches. I have to out and buy him a new Cone of Shame today too because the dog is a freaking tank. I've had to tape it together twice but now pieces are missing...oy. Pray for me people...this dog is not even nine months old. >_<

Oreo Balls!

Oh, my these were delicious! They went fast but be ready to get a bit dirty when you make um! Mouth is watering just thinking about them again...yum!

These take just three ingredients! So simple!

1. One package of Oreos
2. One 8oz package cream cheese
3. One package 12-16oz semi-sweet chocolate


1. First take all the oreos and finely grate th
em. Mince, mince, mince!
2. Put aside 1/4 cup of oreos for topping.
3. Soften the cream cheese and add it to the oreos and mix.
4. Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place onto w
ax paper over cookie sheet.

At this point you may want to put the balls into
the refrigerator for a while to cool before the chocolate stage.

4. Next, melt the chocolate. Try setting up a double boiler by boiling water in a pot and putting a glass bowl (or pyrex dish in my case) on top. That way the chocolate will not burn.
5. Dip the balls in chocolate. You might try toothpicks here. I didn't have any so I used an icecream scoop. Very messy :D but tasty.
6. Place balls on wax sheet and sprinkle with rest of oreo mix.
7. Place in fridge to cool for at least one hour and then devour!!!


Fail, just fail

First of all I feel I must preface this by saying that this is an Asylum film which should give you a pretty good feel for how bad/fail this movie is. If you are not already familiar with The Asylum, they have made some gems like Titanic 2, Paranormal Entity (which actually wasn't all that bad, just not that scary), Snakes on a Train, etc. They are the makers of today's B/C horror/action, straight to dvd or cable rip-offs. Some are actually pretty enjoyable, while others it's clear they didn't put much effort into. Today I thought I would share with you one of the newest releases, or one of the newest available for instant viewership on Netflix, 8213: Gacy House. YES! It's a paranormal-investigation-found-footage-film! Look at all those hyphens!! Let's go to the video tape (ahem, trailer):

So, now you have seen the "essentials" so to speak. What I will tell you is that it is a typical Asylum film, not that scary, but there are a couple of tense scenes and hey BOOBIES!!! Asylum pretty much decided to make these people the Ghost Adventures of paranormal explorers. They keep trying to piss the any entity there off; Gacy, demon, even...Loki? Ah man, who brought the weird new age psychic?! Also, if you don't know about Ghost Adventures then you are missing out on some serious stupid! Clicky here to become a learner. (I selected this episode because it is especially enlightening of how idiotic they are. "Hey, there's an asbestos warning sign. Let's take off our mask and talk to the camera's about it." Fools.)
Anyway, back to Gacy House. Pretty much from the time they walk in you're routing for the ghost to shut these people up. I guess I was kind of confused to because the film makes a point, too of saying that the original home of Gacy was torn down in 1979 and a NEW house was built. Yet the house they shoot in is definitely old, like early 20th century old, with nothing to code from the 80's (you should see the fuse box). Plus, they begin remarks that the house has been abandoned for two years but nothings dusty, furniture looks great, fresh flowers and there's electricity....hmmmm. I wouldn't bring this up but the characters keep blaming everything on the fact that the house is REALLY old and no one has been living there for so long.
But FTW, the Gacy Ghost gets his comeuppance by literally ripping the pants off the youngest guy there and dragging him to the basement! I cheered. Then they all died. The end. Moral of the story: don't tell John Wayne Gacy he doesn't scare you, because he does. He is an evil, evil clown man and he will rip your pants of and kill you.

Next time, call TAPS.
