Pirates.... You suck.

I will continue to boycott and otherwise ignore the Pirates. Being one of the cheapest payrolls in the league I don't buy this crap. Not even a little.

Pirates say signing Mientkiewicz now unlikely

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said today he is unlikely to bring back popular utilityman Doug Mientkiewicz because of the signing today of free-agent outfielder Eric Hinske
Hinske can play all four of the positions -- first base, third base, left field, right field -- that Mientkiewicz played for the Pirates last season.

So what. With all the SUCK on that team, they can use GOOD players.

Snow Sucks.

I never want to find myself in knee deep snow again. I had a choice, walk the road to the bus way, or take the steps on the right to the bus way... I took the ever dangerous (for me, the definitive klutz) steps.

I was too scared to walk down the street after seeing cars fish-tailing and watching a dumb bitch yapping on her phone while her car slid down the hill I was walking down. I contemplated diving in to a nearby yard to keep her from running me over since that part of the sidewalk has a sloped curb instead of the correct squared one. There would be nothing to slow her and her cell phone down should she decide to plow me over. She was approaching the stop sign at the bottom of the hill where I would have to go left or right. But she was slamming on her brakes and sliding down the damn road. Did I mention she was yapping on her cell phone? So, yeah. I chose the steps. And at the bottom I fell in knee deep snow. Of course, this post wouldn't exist if my normal bus hadn't come early.


Intelligence prevails!

Pissed off....

See this? This right here? This is me pissed off. Exceptionally Pissed off. Pissed off like this usually comes about once a month. That's just how it is. Feel free to skip this post.

Reasons why I am pissed off:

Pissed off cause its snowing again.

Pissed off cause its under 35 degrees.

Pissed off because its clear that if I don't set an alarm on my phone, I could very well spend the whole night sleeping next to my kid on the fluffy rug in her room. Unfortunately, she likes me to lay with her and I have to pretend to be sleeping which usually leads to real sleep. Damn it. That leads to:

Pissed off because I didn't wake up til 1am last night and I had a work project that did not get done because then Julia heard me leaving her room and 20 min later I was putting her to sleep on the damn the sofa since she wont stay in her damn bed. Again, contributing to preventing me from doing any work.

Pissed off because I have to hear for days about everyones problems and when I need to vent about mine, everyone is too busy.

Pissed off because apparently I am not allowed to have pissed off days. I am supposed to be happy and sunshine all the f*&$ing time. Well, I'm NOT.

Pissed off because I have a headache and apparently Advil is like candy in my house. So there is never ANY. So, if I suffer. Everyone else does too.

Pissed off because the morons I talked to on the phone are just that-- Morons. If breathing was a voluntary action, these people would have failed to do so, a long, long time ago.

My advice? Don't piss me off any further, I am likely to kick someones ass.

OH For Goodness sake!

Here we go again!! I swear Greensburg Police and the Southmoreland School District must be BORED to death!!

Southmoreland High students' cell phone images probed

Numerous Southmoreland High School students are under investigation by state police in Greensburg for sending inappropriate messages via cell phone.

The investigation concerns a new trend among young people commonly known as "sexting" -- using cell phones to send sexual messages or images.

Students are under investigation regarding inappropriate images of an underage girl that were sent to students' cell phones since April 2008. It is unclear how the images were discovered or how many students are involved.

Southmoreland School District turned over the investigation to the state police and refused to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation. No charges have been filed.

Is there NO crime in Greensburg?? None at all?

According to, there is a ton of stealing going on. So, I guess that is too boring. They needed to find some shit that was more interesting... How about some kid's being dumb asses?? Yeah, that's it!!! YAY!


Stupid Polititans

Here is, what I believe, complete and total proof that this guy should be totally Impeached:

The story: Oprah, a senator? Blagojevich considered it

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, charged with trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by President Barack Obama, considered offering it to talk show star Oprah Winfrey.
Come on! I know there are people who just LOVE Oprah. I am not one of them, I don't hang on her every word, I don't do things cause she does them... So, I just don't get how she is even a little qualified to be a Senator. My conclusion? The Governor is a idiot. He doesn't deserve to be in office. Period.

Have the "Authorties" listened???

Greensburg People Want Students' 'Sexting' Charges Dropped

Really? You go Greensburg people!!

WTAE Channel 4's Jennifer Miele reported that Mayor Karl Eisaman and the Greensburg Police Department have received dozens of e-mails from people who think the kids' parents -- and not a judge -- should punish them.

"These are good kids that made mistakes ... What they did was wrong, but they are not sex offenders," one of the boys' mothers said in an e-mail to Channel 4 Action News on Monday.


"I think it's actually really foolish for both the school district and the prosecuting attorneys to make an issue of this thing," defense attorney Dante Bertani said. "I mean, it's girls sending pictures of themselves to their boyfriends."

I totally agree!!! Next on the list to harass with complaints about this waste of time:

The city is declining comment and referring all questions to District Attorney John Peck, who made the decision to charge the teens.

Update to "How to ruin a teenager's life forever"

Here is total proof I was right. Proof that the kids are being charged to simply make an example out of them. And not because they were trafficking child porn or knew what they were doing was wrong:

My favorite place, MSNBC had the story: Sexting’ surprise: Teens face child porn charges

In the WPXI story, which included contributions from the Associated Press, {Police Capt. George} Saranko indicated that authorities decided to file the child pornography charges to send a strong message to other minors who might consider sending such photos to friends.

It really pisses me off. I am ashamed of the "Authorities" and their actions. AND to prove this guy is clueless, he says this:

"It's very dangerous," he said. "Once it's on a cell phone, that cell phone can be put on the Internet where everyone in the world can get access to that juvenile picture. You don't realize what you are doing until it's already done." (Seranko could not be reached for comment on Thursday, and a woman who answered the phone at the Greensburg Police Department said, “Our department is not doing any more interviews on the case.”)
OK. Problem 1: Cell phones are NOT "put on the Internet" unless your selling them. Pictures are put on the internet. Moron.
Problem 2: AND I QUOTE He said: You don't realize what you are doing until it's already done.

Gee. You think?!!?? At 14, did you think they KNEW and FULLY UNDERSTOOD that this was child porn? HELL NO. They were just being stupid kids! I can't tell you how pissed off this makes me. I think that we should complain to the "Authorities" that this is a waste of taxpayer money and time that could be spent on murders and other horrible crimes.

But Patrick Artur, a Philadelphia defense attorney who by his reckoning has handled at least 80 child pornography cases, said the prosecution of minors for photos they took themselves runs counter to the purpose of both state and federal child pornography laws: Preventing the sexual abuse of children by “dirty old men in raincoats.”

“It’s clearly overkill,” he said. “… The letter of the law seems to have been violated, but this is not the type of defendant that the legislature envisioned” in passing the statute.
Really? I am glad someone agrees with me. Overkill indeed. Bullshit too.
And to a further extent I agree with one of the boys mother. You can't reject an incoming pic message. You can delete it. But what teenage boy is going to do that?? HMMM???

From WPXI: A mother is speaking out, saying her son did nothing wrong.

"This is going to ruin his life," the boy's mother said. "My son did not know this girl. He had seen her around school, and it was texted to him. He did not take the picture."
"I could see if my son took the picture of the girl," the boy's mother said. "My son just received this as a text message, which by the way, the principal said the whole school had it on their phones."

So why are these 6 kids singled out? Charge the whole student body!! Jez!! They all need a serious talking to. Being forced to register as a Sex offender for 10 years doesn't do anything to help, its not a solution. How about educating kids on this stuff so that they don't end up like this?

One last tidbit from MSNBC:

The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy reported last month that a survey of 1,280 teens and young adults found that 20 percent of the teens said they had sent or posted nude or semi nude photos or videos of themselves. That number was slightly higher for teenage girls — 22 percent — vs. boys — 18 percent.
Sic'em greensburg. Charge all of them bitched with a crime!!!!

Why does everyone have to F*&$ing try and rip off the Orginal, one and only, Terrible Towel???

NFL's plans to introduce Trophy Towel draw cries that it's a ripoff

Hello? It *is* a rip-off!

The Terrible Towel is a symbol, and, like all symbols, it is profoundly
personal for many Steelers fans. Described as the perfect blend of color and
motion, it is tough, ubiquitous, resilient to abuse, utilitarian, portable and
the most recognized fan accessory in the world of sports. This being Pittsburgh,
a towel-come-lately is sure to evoke strong passions.

Thats Church right there!! I am sick and tired of copy cats.
Bill Hillgrove said in this story:

"Like all the other towels that have surfaced out there, it's a cheap
imitation," he added. "I think it's a dumb idea. It's a ripoff. A

Amen.... I agree. Totally

The Terrible Towel's legacy
In triumph and in tears, the towel has waved its way into the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, along with its creator. It has been twirled by active and retired players, punctuating parades and serving as proof of citizenship for tribal members in other cities. It gave Mr. Cope a sendoff at his funeral, and it has been buried with mayors.

But its greatest contribution has been to improve the quality of life for children and adults with intellectual development disabilities through the Allegheny Valley School, where Mr. Cope's son has been a resident since 1982.

Mr. Cope turned over the trademark to the school in 1996. Since then, the cash cow towel and its satellite products have generated $2.2 million for the school, including $1 million the year the Steelers won Super Bowl XL.Given that kind of validity and support, nothing can displace its legacy, said Regis Champ, president and chief executive officer of Allegheny Valley School. "The Terrible Towel has been around for decades," he said. "Nothing can replace an original. The Terrible Towel rules."

And for all you imitators, Here are lessons to learn: Don't F*&$ with the Towel.

It seems that, all of a sudden, the NFL is awash in towels. Blue ones that said "This Is Our House" were handed out before last weekend's game at LP Field in Nashville, Tenn., where the home team Titans were defeated by the Ravens.

Just a few weeks earlier, the Titans did a Tennessee two-step on a
Terrible Towel. Subsequently, they were shut out and then eliminated, and home
field advantage was in the hands of the Steelers. 'There's only one'

Hey Tennessee!! Who's going to the Superbowl now??? That's right. We are, bitch.

Love Pittsburgh, Hate Winter

All I have to say is:

Button up, Pittsburgh. Arctic weather is here to stay

F*&$ You Cold arctic weather.
F*&$ You Global warming. This is the coldest temps we have had in 2 years!!
F*&$ You Ice that was hiding under this snow this morning. My ass still hurts and my legs still feel a little weird when I walk. Where the hell is spring? Or 40 degrees at least?

I hate winter.

Damn it.

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Don't your fingers hurt??

I thought I sent alot of texts at 2000 (in and out) in a month 1 time. Then My stepsister said she sent (in a month) over 5000. And then, I saw this::

Thirteen year old wrote 14,528 text messages in one month!

And I am thinking to myself: PUT THE F*&$ING PHONE DOWN!!! Jez!! How that LG of hers stays charged I will never know. SRSLY, the parents are now putting restrictions on her texting. I'm thinking how did they not notice her texting so much. And does she do school work? I mean, Come on! Its called TALKING. Try it some time.

How to ruin a teenager's life forever.

I don't know.... This is really bothering me. And I will explain why and we will see who agrees.

Here is the story from the breaking news on the P-G today:

Teens charged with sending, getting nude photos by phone

Here is the story:

Three teenage girls who allegedly sent nude or semi-nude cell phone pictures of themselves and the three male classmates high school who received them are charged with child pornography in juvenile court.

Police in Greensburg say the girls are 14 or 15 and the boys charged with receiving the photos are 16 or 17. The juveniles were not identified.

Police say Greensburg Salem High School officials learned of the photos in November. That's when a student was seen using a cell phone during school hours, which violates school rules. The phone was seized and the photos found on it. When police investigated, other phones with more pictures were seized.

OK. I understand they were using their phones when the were not supposed to. But What I don't understand is why they were looking thru the kid's phone pictures.
The phone was seized and the photos found on it.
I don't know that they had a right to do that. I have a real problem with that. New phones can be rather complicated. You don't just accidently "find" questionable pictures. You have to LOOK. But maybe I am wrong about this. Does the school rules say that when the phone is seized it will be searched? Doesn't that violate a right? If it's not the school's phone do they still have the right to look at everything on it? I would feel upset if someone who was not my parent looked thru my phone or looked thru my child's phone. As a parent, that is my job. (and when Julia gets a phone, look thru it, I will.) In my book, you take it, lock it up and they get it back after school or the parent has to come get it. Simple enough. This just really doesn't sit well with me.

The second part of this is the reason I looked at this:

Three teenage girls who allegedly sent nude or semi-nude cell phone pictures of themselves and the three male classmates high school who received them are charged with child pornography in juvenile court.
I will tell you that at 15. At 16. At 17, I did not understand what child pornography encompassed. At those ages, I never would have known that sending a racy pic of myself to my boyfriend would be something that I could go to jail for, or have to register as a sex offender for. SRSLY. I don't expect that these kids understood either. That bothers me too. This whole thing feels like "lets make an example of someone" situation. It really does. Did they hurt anyone? It doesn't sound like it. It sounds more like someone was snooping thru a teenager's phone found something and decided to make a big deal.

This bothers me alot. It feels wrong to me. So anyone have a different opinion here?

Dumb Questions *updated*

I feel bad for the Penguins. I really do. They are struggling so bad. I think that they need a team building event. Something to bond them. I am talking stuck in a 2 room shack with 12 inches of snow where you have to get along or everyone is gonna die, type of Something... (LOL) but these kinds of stupid questions are NOT what they need:

From the PG: Therrien still feels secure despite 7th loss in past 8 games
Penguins coach Michel Therrien has watched his team lose seven of its past eight games and tumble to 10th in the Eastern Conference standings.

He knows as well as anyone that something has to change -- dramatically and quickly -- if the Penguins are to salvage their season.

But, when asked in the wake of the Penguins' 5-3 loss to Colorado at the Pepsi Center yesterday if he felt his job security is an issue, Therrien made it clear that he doesn't believe it is. Or should be.

"No," he said. "Why? I'm not worried about that."

No coach has complete control over his fate, of course, but general manager Ray Shero repeatedly has said that replacing Therrien is not on his radar.

UM. HELLO!!! The last thing the players need is to worry their head coach is going to get fired because they can't get their act together. And also... do you really want your head coach to be all "Yeah, I think I'm getting canned after this season. Sorry, I am a shitty coach guys."

WTF? NO, you don't!

I don't want my NHL head coach to be some sissy boy panzy worried about himself more than his team! Therrien is NOT a sissy boy panzy. He will call out a player. The problem is we are playing so poorly he has to call out almost the whole damn team right now. And a Team problem it is... make no mistake. A coach can't go out there and play for them. These losses are not all his fault.

So Reporters, quit asking stupid questions.

Fans, Stop emailing the same stupid questions.

Penguins (Like any of them read this stupid little blog of mine right?), sit down, take a deep breath, forget the season so far and start playing like the talented pros that you are.

P.S. See, I'm not *totally* crazy about the team bonding thing... Dave Molinari Agrees with me. A little anyway:

Q: I think everyone would agree that the Penguins are missing something, whether it's chemistry, grit or lack of production from some guys who are counted on for production. My question is, do you think not being able to attend their boot camp at West Point has been a factor in their lack of chemistry or grit this season? I think going through that allowed them to get comfortable and rely on each other in tough times.

Brian Finnigan, Boardman, Ohio

MOLINARI: Not spending a few days at the U.S. Military Academy had zero impact on the Penguins' grit -- it not as if, say, Miroslav Satan would have been transformed into a win-or-die-trying warrior if he'd been able to put in a few quality hours on the obstacle course -- but there's no question the team-building time they spent there in 2006 and 2007 contributed to exceptional camaraderie the Penguins had.

Even so, a visit to West Point does not come with a guarantee of success. If it did, 30 teams would be booking a trip there every autumn.

Oh and Marty from Windber, PA... Since Dave couldn't say it, so I will: Your a MORON. Nobody wants an ASS like Avery. Come on, the NHL suspended him! How often does the NHL suspend players? SRSLY!!!! Dumb ass.

Word from the Wise...

Consider this my public service announcement.... Don't get ripped off by Tax Refund Anticipation Loans. Please.... See This Article from the Red Tape Chronicles:

Bailout money used for tax refund loans?

I will quote you the most important parts in case you don't have time to read it:

Refund anticipation loans, or RALs, are a lucrative business for the tax preparers. In 2006, 9 million consumers obtained such loans, paying $1 billion in fees.

DAMN! Now that is some $$$ !!!
And In case you don't know what an RAL is:
How refund anticipation loans work
RALs work like this: When customers of storefront tax preparation companies learn that they have a tax refund coming, they are offered the chance to get the money almost immediately. For a fee, the tax preparer arranges a bank loan for the refund amount. The bank then keeps the refund when it arrives from the government.

Here is how the rip off works:

The loan fees are steep when viewed through the lens of a traditional bank loan. Expressed as an annual percentage rate, as required by Truth in Lending requirements, (Jackson Hewitt's Bank) Santa Barbara charges customers an effective annual percentage rate of 113 percent.

Consumers usually are not sensitive to this fee, however, because they don't pay it directly; it is simply deducted from their refund. Fees vary based on the size of the refund, but a consumer expecting a $2,600 refund could expect to pay about $95 in interest charges plus nearly $40 in processing fees, Fox said. Most must wait a day or two to receive their funds.

That is over $100 of your money just in fees. That is crazy. It is as bad as payday loans. Legal Loan sharks...

And a drum roll Please:

Refund anticipation loan consumers may not realize that taxpayers who file electronic returns get their refunds – for free -- in an average of 11 days.
I understand people need help with their taxes. I pay a someone to do my federal. But don't let these places talk you in to getting a LOAN for money your entitled to anyway. I want all my money. I can manage to wait 10 days. That gives me time to plan what I am going to do with it anyway. :-)

Ok. That is the end of this public service announcement.

Stupid news

I saw this story... and I just HAD to post it....

Boy, 6, Misses Bus, Steals Family Sedan

First... WHO was in-charge of the 6 year old? Who was supposed to get the kid up, ready for school and out the door. Not MOM apparently:

The boy, whose name wasn't released, missed the bus, took the car keys and drove
nearly six miles on Route 360, about 61 miles east of Richmond, while his mother
was asleep

Well.... this explains it all:

The boy told police he learned to drive playing Grand Theft Auto and other
video games.
Lovely. 6 year olds are not supposed to be playing GTA for goddness sake. Its an ADULT Game!! I'll give the kid some props though for how close he got:

Police said he made at least two 90-degree turns, passed several cars and ran
off the rural two-lane road several times before hitting an embankment and
utility pole about a mile and a half from school.

It ended like this:

Northumberland County Sheriff Chuck Wilkins said 26-year-old Jacqulyn Deana
Waltman is being held without bond. Forty-year-old David Eugene Dodson was
released on a $5,000 bond. The boy and his 4-year-old brother were placed in
protective custody.

I hope they make them take parenting classes. Dumb asses.

Love This Church: WTF Edition

For Record:
I know the picture is crappy... It was dark (after work) when I took it, and I didn't have the time to stand very still to use the night mode on my phone's camera

All I have to say... This stopped me in my tracks.

The $10,000 word this week is: Skydiving.


Wtf? What does this mean? If you fail at skydiving your DEAD! That is an Epic fail!!
Or is this more of a "If your generally a screw up don't take up skydiving"? Sometimes I wonder... This is as good as my
"don't wish to be anything but what your are" post.

Gotta love the church... endless amusement!!

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Oh Penguins!!!

What is going on? We lost again. 6-1?? This is like the 4th time we got creamed by our opponent. What is going on with defense? Goal tending?? Offense?? Hell, the whole team is struggling... Maybe we should have kept Ty Conklin?? Not that we could have... I see chatter in the paper about dealing Staal in a trade and that makes me sad. Did we really have that much of a talent drop-off over the off season???

Salary cap... blah blah... I get it. I know. But I am still sad to see them losing like this.

And what is this crap about the cap going down next year?? Who thought that was a smart idea?


Love This Church: Double header Edition

Welcome to this double header of Love This Church!! I haven't cemented my place is hell for a couple weeks so here is 2 weeks of Love This Church for ya!!!

Up first....

Apparently the Beasts are very gossipy creatures. They don't intend to do anything but blab your business to everyone! I just don't know what to make of this... Is it a warning? A reminder? A hint? What??? Is it "tell all" as in all your business or "tell all" as in all the people with in earshot? and if its the second one... What are they telling? Secrets to real estate (scams) Riches??

And second.... How to write an incomplete phrase or sentence:

Ok.... is "OF" really needed here? And what do stone mangers have to do with census taking? Is this secret code for "Make sure one of the friendly beasts don't run off with baby Jesus?" Does the Census keep track of mangers and/or their contents now? I never saw that on my census questionnaire.... "How many mangers are in this household?" Nope... not there. What is the Census tracking here???

Give me my bus ticket to hell now.

Amusingly Stupid....

The news. I can always find some good stuff. Some homegrown... some not. I can't make this stuff up!
Under the heading Amusingly Stupid... We have this:

Hmmm. I am just gonna quote this for your amusement:

...He became angry with a McDonald's drive through attendant, claiming he was shorted $5 in change.
...The store manager pulled the register, determining Moye had not been shorted money.
...Police said the man got out of his car and began threatening the attendant and the manager, punching 
the window twice and spitting at the building.
...Moye told troopers that he did become agitated but denied spitting or punching the window.

However, the incident was caught on surveillance video
The Moral? Video surveillance is everywhere. And maybe learn to count your change before assaulting building....

And this makes me wonder as well

Umm... Why is this a debate. Rudolph has always been protrayed as a male in everything I can remember. A quote:

Veterinary professor Dr. Alice Blue-McLendon says Santa's reindeers were most likely female.

It turns out real reindeer grow antlers regardless of gender.

Blue-McLendon also wonders whether a boy reindeer really sport a shiny red nose that almost glows.

She said females like accessories -- shiny stuff.
You know what? Thanks for setting my gender back. And the last time I checked the story, Rudolph didn't ask for the damn shiny nose. 
For the record.... in the animal kingdom it is not uncommon for the male to be the one with all the "shiny stuff" trying to attract females. Moron.

The moral? Who cares if Rudolph is a boy or girl and quit wasting Texas A&M students tuition money on something so dumb.

And for my finale:

It may be time to call off the dogs. Police said an upstate New York county's 911 system has led them to arrest three teens accused of vandalism.

Officials said three teens were trying to steal auto parts from parked vehicles when one of them unknowingly hit the emergency button on his cell phone.

The phone dialed 911, and police said emergency call dispatchers heard the three discussing the vandalism in progress. 
A 911 operator used the phone's GPS signal to guide arresting officers to their locations.

The moral? When your stealing shit... learn to lock your keys on your phone dumbass.

Thats a wrap!

Vacation? and other random stuff

Ok, So, I needed a break. Between my birthday, Christmas, new years and a 23 month old who suddenly refuses to sleep in her room the whole night... (this includes not going to sleep before 11pm) I have just been way to tired. Not enough time....  In any case, updates/posts will begin again not that the holiday madness is 1 less thing I have to stress about.

My current worry is that some of my family has asked me why i didn't take Terrorist to see Santa Claus this year. I sorta didn't last year either. (A brother in law dressed up for us and Terrorist was barely a year and she didn't care.) Julia tends to not go near strange men. She will cry. If she doesn't see my dad for a while... she won't go near him. So, I just couldn't bring myself to stand in a line I *knew* she wouldn't wait in, only to have her refuse to go near him. Someone get me Mrs. Claus please? 

I know my kid. She stays up till 11pm. She has a TON of energy. Standing still is not possible for more than 15 seconds for her. There are some battles I just don't want to fight cause they aren't worth it.  So, does it make me a bad mom that I don't have a picture of my almost 2 year old (most likely sobbing, with me drinking in the corner from guilt) on Santa's lap yet? Is it unreasonable to want to wait until next year when she is almost 3 and can understand better? I don't think so...
