Episode LXXXXIX: “What A Busy Week!”

OK so I know I haven’t posted anything in a whole week. Things have been crazy at home and at work. I had to hire two new helpers at work and then complete their safety training and then yesterday the new boss’s started so that is all new and hectic. My house is chaos Melissa flies home tonight to go back to Seattle since the moving up here thing didn’t work out the way we had planned – we weren’t expecting the dry spell in the job market. I had one of the helpers from work on my couch for the last four days she left to fly to Ketchikan this morning, I might have the house to myself for a whole day and then Jessy will be staying there with me for a bit while she finds other arrangements. But hey at least my life is not boring even if it’s not all out to the wee hours of the morning partying anymore. More to come once I figure everything out.

Episode LXXXXVIII: “What’s Up Peeps!”

So this weekend was pretty dull for me. Melissa went out to the beer and barely festival got completely wasted and did not end up going to bed until 11:30 Saturday afternoon she was hanging out with Dallas and Brandon. She got two hours of sleep and then was up again. I vegged most of the weekend I did get up and dressed on Saturday night to go over to hang out with them at Dallas’s house. I got there at about 10 at night and even though I wasn’t drinking or anything I was asleep on his couch by 11:30 I woke up at and we left at 2 am Sunday. Went home and then got up at 10:30 ran some errands and then Jessy came over and we were going to cook dinner and watch the Packer/Giants game – GO GIANTS! Then I got a cryptic phone call from Sam (my old roommate) wanting to know what I was doing for the next hour I said laundry and watching TV. He told me he would be at the house in 3 minutes and I was to get in the car. That was weird but I was ready and waiting when he pulled up. I sped the ten minute car ride in a little bit of fear because he wouldn’t tell me where we were going and asked if I didn’t trust him. I told him I did trust him – “to launch me out of a trebuchet”. Well it turns out he was bored and just wanted someone to play putt putt golf with so we played a game and actually ended up tying it up BUT I DID GET A HOLE IN ONE – GRANDPA WOULD BE SO PROUD! So I got another point Sam = 24, Keri = 526. Anyway we went back to the house and the four of us (Melissa, Sam, Jessy and I) watched the rest of the football game I was the only one rooting for the Giants which made it even more fun when they won.

Last night I dressed up Yoda (see picture below)!

Super bowl – Giant vs. Patriots (I will be rooting for the Patriots but they have won the super bowl before so I won’t mind if the Giants win I think I will end up rooting for whoever everyone else is rooting against). Its way more fun that way!

Episode LXXXXVII: “I Had A Bad Moment Last Night”

So my day and night were actually pretty good yesterday. Until I decided I needed to clean out my closet and pack away the clothes I can’t wear right now. As I tried things on some of the clothes I can wear again are almost ten years old. That is not the depressing part though the problem is most of the clothes that were tight on me are now almost a bit baggy and we all know I like to wear jeans and pants that I need a pair of pliers to pull the zipper up with to pour myself into to them. Not so much now because I have NO ASS! What little that is there is a bit saggy and in most of my nice pants when you look at me from behind I look like a board - straight down. This is no longer funny and an intervention is in order. I don’t care what the norm is I would rather gain thirty pounds and have my curves back then be skinny. I am seriously remembering some horrible times from high school when I had no boobs but I still at least had a butt – now I have neither. So I will start my lunges this evening I think if I do a thousand of them a day that should help perk up the butt I have and I plan on eating only pasta as soon as I have money again to go shopping.

I just weighed myself and I am now at 169 and that is fully clothed. My goal is to get back up to 190.

Episode LXXXXVI: “I Figured It Out.”

Rainbow bright here – checking in.

So I have done a lot of thinking the last couple of days. This is what I have come up with:

So I have always been the good child relatively easy to raise I can fit into almost any situation and feel comfortable. This I totally thank my mother for and the fact that I was a military brat. I’m use to moving and having to adapt. I can usually fit into any group of people weather it be a black tie event or standing in the middle of the ghetto. I look at people as if they are just that people not a group. Over all I have usually always had my shit together.

Then Grandpa passed away (I am not using this as an excuse) but it sort of threw me for a loop. I was already starting to have financial difficulties at this time and so when the doctor introduced me to my Happy Pills – all hell broke loose. That’s right I felt fabulous and had tons of energy. Downside: I didn’t give a shit about anything.

That’s right folks for the last half of the year I have been rebelling. I never got my rebel stage (I think I was gypped in this because it’s better to go through this stage when you’re younger and it’s easier to rebound when you’re in your early twenties as opposed to say your late twenties). So alas no more Happy Pills means I am not dealing with change in my life as easily as I would have say 6 months ago. Now when I get a shut off notice for one of my many overdue bills I no longer shout into the night “Bite ME electric company I will pay you when I feel like it as long as my mortgage is paid I will live in my house freezing and in the dark and you still won’t take me, WaaHaHa!”

Now it’s more like I open the bill and then curl up into a little ball and start crying. I will make it, it will be tough for the next few months but I am confident that I can make it back to the place where I have my shit together and people can rely on me once again.

So I would like to apologize right now to my family first for being a complete idiot and to the friends I have lost touch with in my quest to be the party girl and just have a little fun. The shark that is life has just swam up from the depths of my soul where the old Keri resides still, broken but not beat down to the point of no return – yeah that shark has just bitten me in the ass.

However the upside of the Happy Pills is that I am not afraid to show emotion and I know if I break down and cry it will all be OK because my friends and family will still love me.

Episode LXXXXV: “EXTRA, EXTRA – Read All About It!”

“Rainbow Bright Brained In Horrific Shower Trauma”

OK so my hair had turned out to light so I wanted to make it go darker so Melissa bought me more hair color. It is a color I have used before I just couldn’t remember when. So we went home and she put it on my head and I waited then went to take a shower. As I was rinsing my hair my shower nozzle attacked me nearly knocking me out. Then I get out and dry my hair so I can see it – let’s put it this way even wet I could see the red. OK so not really the dark brown color I was going for I dry it and go down stairs to tell Melissa that I am officially Rainbow Bright. She says it looks more like Mahogany which she is probably right but I did not want this much red in my hair. So once I get some money again I am going to go back and try and find a dark brown.

I actually like this color but I am not sure that I am in the mood for this color at this time. I don’t know I might get use to it – maybe I will take a census.

Episode LXXXXIV: “The Cat Broke The Bank”

Seriously this is not like last time when the cat “Puddy” went outside and failed miserably at being a cat and came back home after gouging a nice tear in his stomach which required a emergency visit to the vet and 14 stitches costing me $450 to fix him up right again. (He was grounded to the house for almost two years after that little incident). However this is not a metaphor – he literally knocked my glass piggy bank off the table and on to the floor. So he quite literally Broke the Bank. He does not like being locked in the house but he’s not man enough to want to spend too much time outside in the cold. He is driving everyone crazy humans and dogs alike. He also has this thing with dragging my bras out of my dressing room and downstairs and then leaving them lying in the front room. I won’t tell you how many time I have come home with friends to find my lingerie right there for the world to see. It wouldn’t be so bad if I had hastily removed it or had it removed and it got deposited there because at least that would be fun. So in conclusion “FREE CAT TO GOOD HOME!”

Also since I was fond of that Piggy Bank – having decorated it myself a year ago when I was in Hawaii with Lexie and her parents. I might need to call upon Lexie’s mother for a new one. DAMN CAT!

Episode LXXXXIII: “Fantastic! – NOT!”

OK so this is what has happen since I last posted on my birthday.

Thursday night: Melissa was my designated driver took some shots before leaving the house. Got to Kootz at about 8:00, got a BLT and saw some of the Big Show. Lance and Celeste showed up it was their anniversary so Lance proceeded to buy me drinks. Big Mike made me do a Blow Job shot off one of the Big Show regulars. I didn’t win the chance to spin but we hung out for a bit longer and went home at 11:30 and made it to bed by 1:00 am.

Friday: we ran some errands and got ready for the big night out. 7:30 found me inebriated at the hockey game – so much so that I actually threw a note over the glass to Cody Rudkowsky and Scott Kelman who were playing for the other team. No it did not contain my phone number. But it was funny. Then after the game we went to Platinum Jaxx and met up with Tammy, Heather, Tool and Kurt (they then disappeared off the face of the earth when Marcella, Melissa and I moved to Kootz at midnight. Dallas and his friend Brandon showed up later and we all hung out. At this point I wasn’t feeling well. NO it was not from the drinking so at 1:30 I told Melissa I wanted to go home. I went home and crawled into bed woke up late on Saturday morning and proceeded to suffer from the Black Plague as did Melissa.

Saturday: I think I might have gone downstairs and left my bed only long enough to take the dogs out.

Sunday: Replay of Saturday – I was becoming one with my bed and suffering a backache on top of everything else from being in bed so long.

Monday: Left the house for a total of an hour and a half to run to the doctor and the bank. But at least when I made it home I stayed downstairs curled up on the couch I sort of needed a change of scenery. Started to feel a little more human Monday night went to bed with every intention of going to work the next day.

Tuesday: Woke up to go to work was dizzy and aching all over and Hello Welcome back fever. Called in to work it just wasn’t happening but set up the blow up mattress right in the middle of the living room continued to sleep and watch TV went up stairs to bed that night and woke up this morning feeling better but still not great. Right now I just want to go home and go to bed.

So over all not my best birthday weekend ever. But hey at least I am another year older and wiser right!

Also I was able to color my hair and it is a light brown now so I am going to have to color it again to get to the dark brown I want. I think my blonde party days are over at least for now I am so broke I can’t afford it anyways plus it is winter time and I really crave nothing else but to relax and over all do nothing.

Episode LXXXXII: “Happy Birthday to ME!”

Good morning everyone – today is a fabulous day I am completely off my meds and feeling great. I just had a piece of chocolate cake for breakfast and I will be having posole for lunch all thanks to my wonderful co-workers. Lexie was the first to call me this morning it was a bit early but still, then Jaime called and then April sent me a text and John and Grandma Duffany sent an e-mail. So I am feeling really loved already and I have only actually been up for an hour. I am hoping to also get Monday off so I might not be blogging until next Tuesday. Much love to all.

Episode LXXXXI: “2008!”

Well it is the start of a brand new year. My New Years Eve night consisted of me getting drunk by 8:30 and getting to Kootz by 9:30 and running around the bar some dancing and more drinking a couple of drunk phone calls to those that I love. My mother and my sister – they pretty much think I am whacked but so are they so they would never judge. Then we left the bar at 1:30 and a few people came back to the house. I vaguely remember passing out around 5:30 on the couch and then moving upstairs to my bed falling asleep to Harry Potter. Then being rudely awakened less then four hours later to deal with a busted pipe on a water heater at I house I sort of sudo manage. Spent three and a half hours over there dealing with plumbers and people removing water. Got home and back in bed by 2:30 in the afternoon got about 3 hours of sleep before Lexie started to call and bug me because she was out having her party and so I got up to meet her at the Bush Company and then proceeded back to my house where Lexie and her accomplice toilet papered Dave’s car (sort of serves him right for leaving it unlocked). Then I couldn’t get to sleep until 1:30 this morning. I am so tired and I have a lot to do tonight but I will be in bed early because tomorrow is my birthday and I plan on starting it with a bang tomorrow night since I have off on Friday. I am also thinking about taking off on Monday so I can have one more day to do absolutely nothing because that is what I want to do.

Friday nights plan includes a hockey game, Platinum Jaxx and then Kootz. I have bullied most people into either going out with me on Thursday night or Friday. So it should be fun.
