The coolest table EVER!

Is this not the coolest table ever? I want it, badly.


I imagine I would pinch my fingers right off expanding this table though, so it's a good thing I don't have enough money to buy one of these. The price for one of these beauties? The cheapest I have found is $8,000, though most say they cost $40,000-50,000, but people have paid up to $500,000 for one of these babies at auction.

Speaking of expanding furniture, how about this 'chair'?


Why life, my life anyway, doesn't suck

First as the lovely Sara pointed out there is chocolate. Chocolate is very tasty!

I think we all have had at least one moment in life when we have thought, 'life sucks'. I have had these moments frequently lately, but I am always soon reminded why my life doesn't suck.

One reason my life doesn't suck is my best friend, though her jealousy gets down right annoying at times (not her jealousy of me, her jealousy when it comes to her boyfriend), she almost always knows how to cheer me up. The rare times I get to spend time with her, she can always make me smile, she's just a lot of fun and she can know what I'm thinking (and vice versa) just by looking at me. Whenever I have really needed her (except for those 2 years in her life that she was having major personal issues), she has been there for me. Whether I needed someone to laugh with, cry with, break into my house for me (lol), recommend movies to me, or just to listen, she has been there. I love you Leslie!

Another reason is my parents. Honestly, my mom and I rarely get along, we actually have very similar personalities and so we butt heads a lot. We are both very stubborn too, so that doesn't help. But despite all that, I think my mom is one of my best friends, I know I can call her anytime I need to talk, and she will usually be supportive. My dad is just an awesome man and an even better dad. I know he'd move mountains for me, if need be. Both my parents are also awesome grandparents. My kids are very lucky to have them.

My kitties, especially my boy cat. He knows when I need some kitty attention and will come lay on me and purr and purr and give me kitty kisses (I just wish his tongue didn't feel like 30 grit sandpaper). When I use the computer he will come lay on the arm of my chair and put his head on my arm and just look at me like I am the most wonderful person ever.

And last but not least, and the most important, my kids. Just today they have made me laugh so hard and have given me too many kisses and hugs to count. I love my kids more than anything and I don't think you can ever know just how much you are capable of loving someone until you have a child.

Earlier today I thought for sure they were out to get me. Sally had taken her diaper off last night and her and all her babies and blankets were covered in pee this morning. Charlie pooped in his room again today, but luckily he didn't smear it everywhere. (I wiped them both up really good since tonight was bath night) Charlie dumped his food on my carpeted kitchen floor (what idiot would put carpet in a kitchen?) so now I'm going to have to drag the carpet cleaner out. Sally spit milk on herself and rubbed food in her hair. I gave them a bath tonight and they pulled the window blinds down in themselves (what idiot would put the bathtub where the window is? oh and carpet in the bathroom too!). Seriously, I thought they were out to get me!

Oh I forgot to mention. This morning I got Charlie out of his room and he excitedly yelled, "Mommy!" and ran up and gave me a big hug. Then we went and got Sally out of bed and she gave me a big hug and a kiss.

We all counted, Charlie and I tried to teach Sally colors and letters, to no avail, but we had a good time trying! We danced to music, we laughed so hard Charlie and I had tears in our eyes and Sally got the hiccups.

After their bath, I put Sally in a beige towel and told her to go play and was going to give Charlie a green one but he thought he needed the beige one (same exact towels, just have 2 different colors) so he went running after Sally naked and Sally saw him coming and squeeled and started running, her towel falling off her, so two naked toddlers were running down the hall, followed by me. And then Charlie tackled Sally to the floor and all I saw was two naked baby butts sticking in the air and all I heard was lots of laughing.

Then I was brushing Sally's hair and Charlie wanted to help and he brushed her hair, then his own and then mine and while he was brushing my hair he said, "Wow, mommy, you are SO PUURRRTY!" And then he gave me a big kiss.

Then we did lots of hugs and kisses. And Charlie learned how to be the high fiver (you know give me 5, up high, down low, too slow!) and he was doing that with Sally and then they would just burst out laughing.

Then it was time for bed. And they gave each other a hug and kiss. And then I put Sally to bed first and she gave me a big hug and then a big kiss, with sound effects and all. And I told her, "Good night Sally, I love you," and she replied, "night, love you." (I don't care that she's just copying me, because hearing her sweet little voice say it, is enough for me!) Then I put Charlie to bed and we snuggled and he gave me a big wet kiss and he said, "I love you mommy!" And I said, "I love you Charlie," and then he said, "Mommy, turn light off!" Hahahaha!

So yeah, I have a good life, not perfect, but good. And sure my kids have a lot to do with that, which some people may think that it's wrong to have your happiness revolve largely around your kids, but I'm ok with that for right now. I'm happy and my kids are happy and that's all that really matters right now.

Life sucks?

Life sucks, you're born, you do stuff, and then you die. Thoughts?

I am officially a 16 year old girl

So I watched Twilight last night and I hate to admit, I loved it. Sure, some things about it were a little weird. I mean the first thing is that Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson, is supposedly incredible hot, am I the only person in the world that thinks he is not? Not even in the least bit? And then he's all pale and cold? And he comes and watches Bella sleep at night. And then he's kind of a jerk and almost controlling acting. Oh and not to mention the fact he has a strong urge to kill her... and he's like, you know, a vampire? Yeah, seems like the perfect guy to me!

I had to laugh, for the past several months I've heard something about girls only liking guys that sparkle and I didn't get it at all. I knew it had something to do with Twilight, but I didn't get it. So when I found out what the heck all this sparkling guys stuff was about, I laughed. And then I laughed again. How silly, I had no idea vampires sparkle in the sun. Are they part fairy or something or live with fairies who got their glitter all over them. And I thought vampires disentegrate or something when they went in the sun. I suppose it would be kind of hard to have a vampire dating a high school girl though if he couldn't go to school ever.

*sigh* So much to pick apart and so little time or initiative.

So yeah, I liked it, and officially have the mindset of a 16 year old girl. Just don't tell anyone. Oh, and I am so going to see the second one in theaters!

I made a blog once before, but it just didn't work out, so I am going to try again!

You may think that the Rambling Rambler is a strange name for a blog. Why the strange name you ask? And isn't that kind of redundant?

First, I like to be redundant, second, I ramble. A lot. And this I know about myself. I am shy, but once you get me talking, I don't shut up. I'm sure sometimes people just want to scream at me, "Just shut up already!"

Oh and I hate it when people say, "shut up." It just sounds so rude. "Be quiet" sounds so much nicer, don't you think? Because I surely do!

So I have decided for the time being to keep my identity hidden. You know, names have been changed to protect the innocent (and the not so innocent), haha.

So I suppose I should tell you a bit about myself. I am a single mom of two absolutely gorgeous children. They are very sweet a lot of the time, like when they are sleeping, and occasionally when they are awake too. My oldest is a boy and I will call him Charlie, he is almost 3 already. Can you believe it? Because I can't! He is going to be the class clown! He is always trying to make people laugh. My youngest I wall call Sally, she is 1.5 and is the sweetest little girl ever. But she's also quite dramatic, lol.

So where did I pull these made up names from? Not out of my ass, believe it or not. My parent's think every kid should have a nickname and these are the nicknames they were given, though they are nothing like their real names.

And my kids know their nicknames and will answer to them. Kind of a funny story for you, I often tell my son he is silly, because he is. A few months ago though whenever I would tell him he was silly he would say, "No, *insert my daughter's real name here*'s Sally, I'm Charlie!" Trust me, it was too cute.

So what else shall I tell you about myself... Hmm... I do not know. I like to read, my favorite authors are Dean Koontz and James Patterson, brilliant men they are!

I also like to watch movies, but I hate watching movies by myself and I love to talk during movies, but i would never do so at a theater, for I would be afraid I would get popcorn thrown at me. My best friend, I shall call her Leslie, recently rented the movie Twilight. Now if you know me, I hate vampire movies, unless you count Interview with the Vampire, but that movie was only good because it had Brad Pitt in it, I mean, helllloooo, what movie wouldn't be good if it has Brad Pitt in it. He is hot! Anyway, so Leslie rented Twilight and has been ranting and raving about it, telling me I need to watch it. Now, I am anti doing anything popular, especially if that thing is something that 16 year old girls are into. But I decided to rent it, because I have been told about 108 times in the last 2 days how great a movie it is. So it BETTER be good. It cost me $2.78! That's way too much money to spend on a sucky movie (pun intended) and yes I am cheap when it comes to spending money. But I am not a cheap date, so if you want to spend your money on me, that is quite alright.

Another thing I recently realized I do, I pick up weird pronunciations of words. For example, instead of saying about, I say aboot, thanks for that Canadians! Instead of harrassing, a word that most peple do not use, but I somehow manage to squeeze in often, I pronouce it like Percy Wetmore, in The Green Mile, when he says, "What if I just call up certain people and tell them you're harassing me?" I recently saw another movie, though i don't recall what movie that is where they also pronounced harassing in that way. Another thing, is asked, I say axed. Yes I am quite annoying.

I strange thing a couple months ago, I have quite the accent. I had taken a video of me talking and listened to it and wow, I didn't realize I sounded like that. It was quite funny. Now I know how all you people who have weird accents didn't realize it, I always thought I sounded normal, but now I realize I don't and that means my friends probably don't either.

My goal is to try to write something at least once a week. I will try, but I make no promises. One of my pet peeves is people who make promises they know they might not be able to keep. If you say you are going to do something, do it. If you don't know if you can do it, even if it's just the slightest possiblity that you won't be able to do it, don't say you are going to do it. It just makes people mad. Well it makes me mad anyway.

Perhaps I should make a list of my pet peeves, I used to think I didn't really have any, but now I realize, I actually have quite a few. And one of my pet peeves is people with a lot of pet peeves. Isn't it ironic? Don't ya think?

So I guess I've rambled enough for one rambling session. Good night to you, and remember, if you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweety and wipe the seaty.
