The World Just Needs to Relax Sometimes

So, I stumbled on a recent post a friend of mine had on FB today and it made me utter the words of the title of this post under my breath.  

It was on the subject of gender appropriate parenting.  Being a parent myself, it caught my attention and I read on.  A mother was telling a story of how her toddler daughter received a heart shaped mirror and brush set in a Easter basket from her Mom in law and how she didn’t like it.  Okay, I get that kids shouldn’t grow up with the mind set that girls are arrogant people that only care about their appearance and, basically, that everything pink and hearts is only for girls. However, that being said.  The kid is a toddler.  She probably didn’t notice the shape or color.  At least this Mother has a mom in law who lives close by (i’m assuming) and thinks and cares enough about her grand kids to bring Easter baskets. Maybe the MIL was looking for an alternative to chocolate.

 Is the toy led based? Was there breakable glass in the mirror? Does the bristles come lose easily causing a choking hazard?  Did the MIL put a pack of cigarettes in the basket? These are causes for concern in my mind.  Otherwise relax.  The other things can be explained when your child has a vocab of more than 40 words.  

Take Care,

Being Drunk

(Warning I have a potty mouth.  You have been warned)

Yeah that seems like a good idea at the time don’t it? Like yeah, I’ll get drunk then I’ll forget about my problems for a few hours.  Then a few hours later you’re drinking water and lying on the bed in a drunken foggy stupor after dancing just a few moments before to some 90’s song you would have never thought of while you were sober (or is that  just me?) whilst the room is spinning (of coarse the room is not spinning, that’s just you jackass, cause your drunk….fucktard) Than that moment comes when you’re between drunk & sober and you realize “ahh man, fuck!!! The problems are still there I just have to face them again tomorrow, sober! And with a hangover!”  Great Solution asshole!!! The freakin Nobel Prize is in the mail!  Well, that was nice while it lasted. Ahh, my chemical romance (Oh, I get that bands name now)  I’m sure we will meet again soon.  

Take Care,

Jerrica

*This is a post from another blog that I did about 2 months ago after a night of celebrating friends birthday.  I did not get drunk in the span of a few minutes or in the middle of the day.*

Cause I Want To Jump Off A Bridge With You!

Well, Here it is my first blog. Ta da!! I’m Mainly here because some of my friends have blogs and I want to have one too! (Hence the title of this blog. Bet ya thought I was manic depressive and goth like huh?).  So, there friends, stick that in your pipes and smoke it.

Now I guess I have to write something (Crap, should have thought this through!!) I basically just want to write about whatever floats in my tiny brain.  I’ll start with my profile name.  It ain’t real! I know, starting a blog with such dishonesty!! I’m appalled too (No, I’m not) Ill tell you how I came up with it.  If you were a kid in the 80’s than you are probably familiar with the most awesome cartoon ever, Jem.  What’s that you’re not? Than I’m sorry you’re a loser.  Just kiddin’ (No I’m not).  Well if you do know about Jem, You’ll know that Jem was really Jerrica.  She changed to popstar, Jem via her holographic changing red starburst earrings.

The second part comes from another awesome show and is after my favorite character in it.  (Yes, I watched too much TV in my youth and fried out my brains in the process, blah, blah, blah) The Characters name is Spike.  So why not Jerrica Spike? Cause 1. That just sounds completely stupid and 2. I used the characters real name from the show.  Cause I’m clever and witty like that you see (raises one eyebrow).  What show? If  you’re a fan you already know.

Wow, that took longer than it should have.  So this is how the rest of my blog will be. Useless dribble that you’ll be none the wiser for reading.  I may be the only one who sees it, maybe not.  If not, I’m sorry I wasted 5 minutes of your life and no you can’t have it back.  I’m sure i’ll screw up quite a bit in the beginning.  I have horrible grammar and I have no idea how to blog or about anything blog related.  I don’t read instructions or do research.  If I want to do something I just jump right in with both eyes closed…..and both hands over my eyes…..while peeking through my fingers occasionally.

I guess I should also share some personal stuff about myself.  I am married with two offspring.  One a male in his 9th year of life.  The other is female in her 6th year.  I also work in the high paced, interesting (what kind of interesting depend on the day),  sometimes annoying, sometimes life draining, sometimes funny world of retail.  I’ll probably be posting some rantings about these topics as well.

Well, that’s all ya get for now cause I have to be at that job I mentioned above in an hour and drop the offspring off at daycare.

Take Care,

Jerrica
