I have been giving this blog some thought. I have loved writing it and even more, I love having followers because my self-esteem just craves followers! But since Christmas Eve, I have just not had the ambition to add to it and now that I am thinking more seriously about my professional career, I am not sure it is a very good idea for me to have.
However! The posts do seem to help people (especially the ones about Lupus) and I adore The Tattoo Project!
AND! I love having this to come back to when I like.
AND! I think I am worthy of employment despite some of the posts I have made. I mean, I am human with all sorts of human thoughts, feelings, and such…does the blog have to be a negative when it is packed with a ton of positives too?
Any thoughts or ideas or suggestions for me? I would love to hear them!!
As many of you know, I am a member of the West Webster Fire Department. This week has been the longest week of my life and yet, it seems like just yesterday, I was thanking Tomasz for supporting me and laughing at Chip’s goofy ways. I have so many thoughts that they are all scrambled and every time I try to put them in writing, words never seem to be nearly enough so I just give up. I know that I will write about the events of this week soon. I know I must in order to get it out there. I also know that I won’t be able to do it now. Two of my brothers and friends went into the ground this week because of a sick coward and the community has completely overwhelmed me in response. All I can say here is a message from my Mother-in-Law, “What the devil uses for evil, God uses for good.” Amen. More to follow when my thoughts get clearer. Stay safe, friends.

I love that I can look up all the search terms people use that lead them to my blog. It helps me know what the popular topics are so I can write more about them. Tattoos and Failed Text Messages seem to be the hot ones!
It also helps me see how incredibly weird and perverted people are.
It also makes me wonder how weird and perverted I am if their weird and perverted search terms are landing them on my blog!!!! Sometimes, I put the search term in the Google box myself to see how in the hell it pointed to me.
Don’t get me wrong; I completely understand why someone may Google “My dick hurts when I pee” or “Vampire Facelift.” Hell, I may have to Google those myself someday! Ya never know. What makes me laugh, however, is that these terms and others like “big boob suspenders” somehow link up to my blog! Fascinating!!!!
Here is my list. I have highlighted the freaky ones!!!!

If you haven’t checked out this information on your blog, I encourage you to do so!!! You will be amused!!
The load is wayyyyy heavy!
I have not been on the blog-front in quite some time. Sure, I post here and there and I attempt to read up on everyone but I haven’t had the time to catch up the way I would like.
The result? Lost 33 (yes, I said, THIRTY-THREE) followers! Wow. I guess I am dispensable after all. :(
So, for those of you who are still following me, THANK YOU! I love you!! And if you are interested, this is what I have been up to.
School is taking up most of my time, attention, and energy. The rest is devoted to fucking Lupus.
I had the most bizarre thing happen to me the other day. I felt I was going crazy and any mental health professional would have had me committed.
My skin has been a little itchy lately but that is nothing new and I am usually able to ignore it long enough to get out of scratching. I avoid scratching at all costs because once I scratch, it is all over for me. Well, on this particular day (Wednesday), both of my thighs started to itch. I tried to ignore it. I tried some more. The itch got worse. Thinking it must have something to do with the jeans I just donned, I doffed them (firefighting terms). The itch turned to pain.
I applied some anti-itch cream from the dermatologist. The itch continued. I rubbed them lightly. The itch continued.
ALL FUCKING DONE!!!
The itching and pain got so intense that I screamed several times. I tried calling my husband but I couldn’t take my nails off my skin long enough to pick up the phone.
I scratched with my nails. I scratched with a dry hand towel. I scratched with a loofah. I scratched with a PUMICE STONE. I scratched with a WIRE BRUSH. Nothing worked. My legs were swollen and I didn’t give a shit. Imagining my thighs cut open with blood pouring out of them didn’t bring a sense of fear. Rather, it brought a sense of relief. I thought, if they are cut and bleeding, at least they will hurt and not itch (enter psycho mode)!
I screamed some more, threw some shit around my bathroom, then ran to the medicine cabinet screaming. I found the Benedryl. I poured a handful of pills in my hand and without thinking, started to put them in my mouth. Luckily, my Guardian Angel said, “um, Nicki…don’t overdose, you dumbass!” I took one. Four minutes later, I took another. Two minutes after that, I talked myself out of taking 2 Xanax.
Still screaming, I went back upstairs and started to brain-storm ways to scratch the itch away.
A razor blade!!!!!!!!!! YES, FOLKS, I WAS THAT INSANE THAT I LITERALLY THOUGHT A RAZOR BLADE MAY BE A GOOD IDEA! Luckily, my Guardian Angel didn’t leave me yet and again knocked some sense into my skull.
I ran the bath water as hot as I could. I slid into the scalding water and INSTANT RELIEF!!! Then I slept for 17 hours.
I can’t imagine what caused this but I pray it never happens again!!! My hubbie thinks that it was a Lupus response to the flu shot I got. Maybe he is right. All I know is that I never want to go through that again. Anyone watching me would seriously have thought I was a self-harmer, a pseudo-suicidal person, a full-blown whack-job. Hell, I was starting to think that!
So, that is what I have been up to. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! If anyone with Lupus has some insight into this freakishly weird episode, do share!!!!

I am an imperfect Christian
I wonder what life after death is really like
I hear my prayers answered in songs on the radio
I see my mom in my dreams
I want my children to know Jesus
I am an imperfect Christian
I pretend I am brave when I truly am scared
I feel God’s presence every single day
I touch people’s hearts when I can
I worry that my kids don’t know how much I love them
I cry at the drop of a dime
I am an imperfect Christian
I understand that Jesus died for me but I don’t feel worthy
I say that only God knows what is in people’s hearts
I dream about my mom walking again
I try not to judge others
I hope my children get to know Jesus
I am an imperfect Christian

I have received another blog award!!! Thanks, Six-Fingered Monkey for picking me as one of 5 recipients, especially when there are so many award-worthy blogs out there!!!
I agree with Six that these blog awards are a bit like chain letters and when I get one, it is bitter-sweet. I LOVE that someone loves me enough to send me an award (or maybe they just sent so many awards to others in the past that they chose me to spare the bloggers they love more the hassle of following these blog rules). Either way, I appreciate the award because it will look so damn cool on my “Awards Page.” But when it comes to paying it forward, I do worry that the others are quietly telling me to suck it.
I am humbly accepting Six’s award with a tweek in the rules. This may ban me from all future awards!
The rules are:
In order to accept you must:
1. Post the rules on your blog (done).
2. Name 5 of your most fabulous moments (either in real life or in the blogosphere).
- When my kids were born. I know…cliche. Deal with it.
- When I competed in my bodybuilding competition
- When I earned my Bachelors in Psychology from an incredibly esteemed university (1 year ago)
- All the times I have responded to ambulance calls as an EMT and truly felt like I was helpful. This happens a lot less than you may think because most things are out of my hands.
- Watching my daughter drape her silver sash and red and gold cords around her graduation gown. That may have been THE proudest moment of my entire life.
3. Name 5 things you love.
- My husband and my kids (yes, coffee comes before them).
- Being an EMT and the EMS Captain at the firehouse
- Being an artist (wishing I could do it more often)
- The thought of becoming a Mental Health Counselor in 2 years
4. Name 5 things you hate.
- Haters. People who hate GROUPS of people just for the sake of hating a group of people. I hate that group of people. I know….you don’t have to tell me about the irony here.
- The fear that I will not become a Mental Health Counselor in 2 years as planned.
- That sleep is necessary. I do love to sleep but I hate that I NEED to sleep.
- When people mistreat the elderly and this includes treating them like children!!!!!!!
5. Pass the ribbon on to 5 bloggers and leave a comment notifying them of their win.
- All Work And No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something.
- Colour the day
- Absolutely Narcissism
- We Work For Cheese
- If I Were God
So go check out these awesome blogs!!!!
If you received this award from me, here are your rules:
1) Copy and paste and conform to the rules above (or)
2) Toss the rules to the side of the road and do whatever the hell you want with it!!
Now…onto some more serious business. Rectums and Uteri. I am not sure if “uteri” is the proper plural for “uterus” but it isn’t underlined (so I am assuming it is spelled correctly) and it sounds way cooler than “uteruses” which, by the way, IS underlined.
I was visiting Sandra over at Absolutely Narcissism (linked at #3 above) and she is taking part in a competition or event of sorts that is sure to make rectums and uteri fall out.
So, now I have a visual of asses and uteri on the side of the road. And I thought the occasional ‘possum or skunk was bad!

I should say that it doesn’t take much for the water works to turn on with me. I am an incredibly emotional person. Consider yourself warned!
5) Yesterday was a horrible Lupus day. Everything in my entire body hurt and my strength was non-existent. Until about midnight when the Captain and Cokes set in.
4) My husband farted when I got into bed at 3:30 this morning. Luckily for me, we had a call and I had a reason to leave the stench. Now my bowel is more irritable than normal and payback is a bitch!
3) My mother-in-law who has a nose like a dog will be in my truck today and I somehow have to make it smell like someone has not had a cigarette in there because she doesn’t know I smoke.
1) My baby girl went from this
ALL IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE!
AND TODAY, SHE IS GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL!
I am going to be a blubbering mess!!
And now, because I have this commercial in my head, you can too. You are welcome. For the record, the writers of this commercial are heartless assbags!!!
I already cried watching this!
OMG, OMG, OMG!!! My Life on the N-List has received its first award today and I am smiling like the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland.
Colour The Day nominated me for this award. The author of that blog is an incredibly strong person and I promise you will be inspired after visiting that blog!!
I am trying to prepare an acceptance speech but this is the only thing that keeps coming to my mind right now and I can’t stop laughing.
So instead, I will simply follow the rules of the award and save you the torture of listening to all the people in my life I would like to thank.
The “One Lovely Blog Award” Rules
1. Include the award logo somewhere in your blog (I have made an Awards Page in the event I get more of these).
2. Answer these 10 questions, below, for fun if you want to (I totally want to).

This post is for The 30 Days of Writing Challenge hosted by We Work For Cheese. Today’s prompt is “Sense of Accomplishment.”
I considered all of my options for the subject matter. I have accomplished so much in my life.
Husband, kids, house, EMT, Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Rochester, Getting into Grad school for Mental Health Counseling, and most recently, not overdosing on Xanax and Tequila while I nursed my obnoxious dog.
Then I thought about my bodybuilding days and I yelled out loud to nobody in particular, “Yes! I will post about my bodybuilding competition!” I mean, I will NEVER look like that again and damnit, I want the world to know about that accomplishment!
Then I visited the most recent post by Nicole Is Better.
I was so moved by this post. Partly because I am the complete opposite of a runner and her induction into the NYC Marathon is sooo awesome but mostly because I am in Grad school to become a Mental Health Counselor and her story is incredible in my eyes!!!!
Nicole has been blessed to have Mental Health Counseling available when she couldn’t afford it. Her success at getting herself mentally healthy is amazing enough!
One of Nicole’s Bucket List items was to run in the NYC Marathon and her success in getting into this event is even more amazing.
BUT!!! Are you ready for this?? You are soooo not ready for this!!!
This marathon is raising money for the same organization that enabled Nicole to receive her needed therapy for about the cost of a cup of coffee!! By running in this marathon, Nicole is making it possible for others needing Mental Health Therapy to get the help they need regardless of ability to pay!!!!!!
Holy shit!! This is HUGE!!!!!
PLEASE go visit her blog post (linked above). You don’t need to donate to her cause (although I am sure she would totally appreciate it) but I think leaving her a comment with an encouraging word would be wonderful.
Way to go, Nicole!!!! Your gift will be a blessing to so many people!!!

While I was enjoying my visit at the Six-Fingered Monkey’s blog, I read his post about the oddest thing he has seen (to date) in a cigarette butt bucket and I was instantly inspired!!!! I won’t tell you what it is because I want you to see for yourself. But what I am about to propose may give it away.
I already gave it away in the title, didn’t I?
Oh well. I am too lazy to think of a new title for this post so deal with it and we will move on.
Anyway….this is what I am suggesting you do.
1) Visit The Six-Fingered Monkey’s post HERE
2) Read the post…or at least look at the picture in the post.
3) Think of a story about the picture…past, present, future… It can be any genre (yes, I know college words) you like. Comedy, suspense, biography…autobiography…play, poem, video. As long as the subject of the picture is somehow included in the story!!
4) Post your Panty Story (or video) on your blog and link this post as well as the Six-Fingered Monkey’s post.
5) Come back to my blog and put a link to your story in the comment section here.
IF YOU DON’T HAVE A BLOG, PUT YOUR STORY, POEM, OR LINK TO VIDEO IN THE COMMENT SECTION.
I will then post all of the links together in one post. I think it will be interesting (to say the least) and who knows? This may just be the thing that gets us all stupid-famous and Paparazzi-worthy!!!
This can be big if you make it big! Hell, I may even make this a monthly meme with a bona fide button and everything!!! Whatta ya say? Are you in??
Here is my contribution to get you started:
There once was a pair of thongs
That witnessed a crap-load of wrongs
But she was loyal to The Missus
Keeping secret all her kisses
Now she’s surrounded by butts after being surrounded by dongs.
As I stated on my “How To Become Paparazzi-Worthy” page, I recently purchased the ebook 31DBBB (31 Days to Building a Better Blog. To purchase this book, go HERE). It is here where I learned about Alexa and Compete and holy hell, these sites are a blog stalker’s wet dream!!!
Now, if you are a popular blog (and by “popular” I mean that I stalk you on a regular basis and dream about being you someday), you are probably WELL aware of these sites. Hell, if I know about them already, you are sure to know about them as well.
But if you are a newbee like me (and by “newbee” I mean that you refresh your stats page every 90 seconds and need a shower and a change of panties every time that “hits” number increases) then you may not be aware of these sites.
Go visit them and start plugging in the sites that you wish to stalk to see how many visitors they get and how they rank. If you want to get really depressed, compare your stats to the really popular ones. BUT! If you want to feel better about yourself, compare your blog to a blog that you know isn’t doing as well as yours.
My blog is so low that there is “No Data.” YET!
