Note - Some of these songs are not suitable for work or for children.  

I would like to thank all my inspirations over the years - to old boyfriends and former friends that have done me wrong.

To the NSA - all the songs above have been downloaded for personal use only and not for commercial use.

And, as usually, I will be spending this V-day, dressed in all black, with my bestie, Angie. Although we won't be physically together, we are always together in spirit!

So, I am going to start fostering again.  Her name is Winter.  She will come here some time next week.  I've been told she is really shy.  I'm looking forward to fostering greyhounds again.  Malley will adjust to having temporary sisters and brothers in the house.  

If you are interested in more information about Winter or any other greyhound available for adoption, or just greyhounds in general, check out

And look for more blog posts here and/or on Winter's blog!

Annual Anti-Valentine's Music

As many of you know, I hate Valentine's Day.  I loath it, I dread the day.  I'm really not bitter, I just have had enough with the crap and just can't stand the day!  So, a few years ago, to ease the pain, for not only myself, but my bestie, Angie, I started to create an annual "Anti-Valentine's Day" cd.  According to tradition, I have once again completed the task.  Here are this year's winners:

1.    The Asshole Song - August Campbell  (I can't fathom why I never included this song in the past!)
2.    Seven Bridges Road - The Eagles
3.    Try - Pink
4.    My Give a Damn is Busted - Joe Diffie
5.    Ballad of Spider John - Jimmy Buffett
6.    Mean Mistreater - Grand Funk Railroad
7.    Bittersweet Memories - Bullet for my Valentine (band name is so appropriate)
8.    It Will Rain - Bruno Mars
9.    Man of Constant Sorrows - Charm City Devils
10.  Get off on the Pain - Gary Allen
11.  Set Fire to the Rain - Adele
12.  Better Dig Two - The Band Perry
13.  Back Stabbers -  The O'Jays
14.  Cryin' Shame - Fundamental Elements
15.  Not Falling Apart - Maroon 5
16.  Kiss This - Aaron Tippin
17.  Missing Your Love - Jonny Lang
18.  Temporary Bliss - The Cab
19.  Brand New Me - Alicia Keys  (Angie - this one is just for you!!!!)
20.  Hell On Heels - Pistol Annies  

Legal Disclaimer - I have not knowingly pirated any of the above songs and I am not selling any of the cd's I burn.  I'm not making a damn dime off of this.  And any other SOPA stuff blah blah blah..personal use only....blah blah blah...not "distributed"...blah blah blah....kiss my...blah blah blah....

Thank you to everyone that contributed to this list.  Sorry to Angie's hubby, I was not able to find his song suggestion on itunes.  Damn itunes!!!!   

Some of the songs may not make sense to everyone, but they do have a meaning or reason for being on the list.  And Angie and I have our reasons.....   

For those of you celebrating Valentine's day, Happy V-day.  For the rest of you, I will be wearing  all black in solidarity with my bestie, and eating gobstopper hearts.

Miss Daisy Update

If you want to track Miss Daisy's progress, there is a blog!
Here is the link:

I know I've been obsessed with the search and now curious with how she is doing.  Her owner is posting updates so we can all follow along with her progress.

Malley and I are sending our well wishes for her!

Daisy is Home!!

Just wanted to do an update.  Daisy the greyhound was found today - she is safe and alive!

She was missing for 22 days.  She was found by her greyhound daddy, and with the help of so many volunteers.

Once again, I have to say that I am honors to say that I know this greyhound group.  If I'm ever lost, call them to find me!

There were so many people worried, praying, searching, distributing flyers, making phone calls and doing so many things to help bring Daisy home.  And now she is safe in her own bed again.  Brings tears to my eyes.

Greyhound People Rock!!!

Last Wednesday a greyhound went missing in the Watkinson, Georgia area.  There was a bit of miscommunication, but by Sunday the search was on.  I went out Sunday and helped the search.  By the time I had to leave there was 20+ people out there looking, from the 3 local Atlanta Greyhound groups.  The search is continued Monday and today, Tuesday for this lost Greyhound, Daisy.  And it has been hot as hell here with temperatures reaching over 100 degrees.
I am always amazed that when the call goes out for a lost greyhound, the troops mobilize so quickly.  People hit the ground searching quickly.  It's almost as fast as a lost child!  This is a wonderful group of people to be associated with and I am so honored to be able to call myself a greyhound person.

I'm having problems posting the flyer for the lost dog, so here is the picture of Daisy:

If you are in the area and want to join the search, contact me and I'll tell you how you can help.

I'm hoping today is the day that Daisy if found and that she is safe!

Too cute not to share

I nabbed this from facebook, I don't know who to give the credit to, but it was just too cute and too true not to share.

What a week!

After a few months of unemployment, I took a temp gig with a company who shall remain nameless.  The reason for the namelessness is so I am not sued for libel.

I knew going into the gig that the position was a temp-to-perm, which means that I could be hired on permanently if they liked me.  I also knew after the interview that this wasn't an audit shop (it was an internal audit position) that I knew I didn't want to work for.

So, today was my 4th day.  Long story short, I was in a meeting with another temp employee, the supervisor and the manager.  I was asked a question, I answered the question.  The manager responded and by his response, I could tell that he didn't understand my answer.  So, I said something to try to clarify my response.

The next thing the manager said was "You need to talk less and listen more".

The meeting was then over.

I proceeded to walk to my cubicle and gather my things.

I then walked back into the manager's office.  By then, his boss, a VP, was sitting in his office.  I normally would knock and ask to come in.  This time I just walked in, laid my badge on his desk and said, "Nobody tells me to shut up" and I left the building.

Now, anyone that knows me knows that I do not walk off a job.  They also know that I will stand up for myself.  That was the single most unprofessional encounter I have ever had.  I may not have reacted in the most professional manner, but damn it felt good.

I don't care how broke I am right now, I refuse to be treated that way.  So, it's back to the job hunt for me!

Greyhound Tattoos

I've been stealing other's pics off of Facebook and posting them here.  They have all been greyhound related, so since they typically promote greyhound adoption, the others don't mind.
This doesn't really promote greyhound adoption, but I just think it's too funny (and too true) not to share.

I do want to eventually get another tattoo related to greyhounds.  I haven't figured out what the design will be yet.  I somehow want to get the racing numbers of the hounds I have had integrated into the design.
