Restaurant.com again.. this time it is 70% off with an added $10 certificate for orders! Just use "RECIPE" in the code!!

Lots of fun at Weekly Scavenger if you like scavenger hunts! They are a new company and they offer $$$ rewards for playing online scavenger hunts. Check it out! A bunch of great guys/gals!(sorry not sure of their specific sexes, just that I have a blast helping them out, playing the games and testing possible new things!)

And I said I would share my daughter Izzy's last play from school so HERE!

She is Miss Tortoise by the way and this was her first year, first semester in Drama and she was a wreck before we left for the school. I think she did an awesome job - her voice was strong and she didn't act like she was too nervous at all!

OK on another subject just because I want to stop walk around the house grumbling about it so I will just get it off my chest here...
Yes, Michael Jackson died - but so did Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett, both of which were ALSO iconic figures in their way. Farrah WAS Charlie's Angels - yeah there were 2 more but everyone remembers her! I'm sure people could name Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson, Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack and Tanya Roberts but when you think Charlie's Angels you think Farrah - admit it!

And Ed McMahon - COME ON! "Here's Johnny!", Star Search, American Family Publishers, MDA Telethon, acting, announer, all around guy!

Yet all I see on TV is Michael.. really? honestly? COME ON! Yes, the King of Pop, Wacko Jacko but honestly.. we really do not need to dedicate SO much air time to him. Yes when I was in Junior High is when "Thriller" came out and yes, like most of my friends I was totally into Michael and yes, his career spanned MUCH longer than that but we do not need to dedicate every show possible to him. I can see a special or two (for ALL of them) but every damn national news show does not need to spend most of their programming time on the life and times of MJ - honestly! and the whole, "but he broke down racial walls" thing.. HELLO! I am pretty sure that Bill Cosby did MUCH more of that than Michael did...

alright, /rant off for the day!

My phone is the coolest phone in the WHOLE WORLD! And the Super Awesome Boyfriend gets a gajillion brownie points for getting it for me..
Latest thing I learned it does is...
so sweet!


Click and make bigger dangit!

Well we went out to dinner the other day at the Woodinville Cafe.. it was CRAP!
Don't bother!
$40 for crappy food that was COLD!
really? seriously?! wtf?!?
And when I told the superslow waitress who only managed to move fast when it was time to bring the bill to the table 2 MINUTES after giving us our plates we waited forever for, she could have cared less..
Maybe I will just give them a call and vent a little..
I knew it was going to be bad when Super Awesome Boyfriend got his salad and it was SWIMMING on the plate in water...

So, Kiddo's fried eggs were cold rubber, Super Awesome Boyfriend's potato's and gravy were nasty cold and it took forever to get our order taken and brought to us in the first place!
Waitress girl had the nerve to ask if we wanted any change back with our bill... uh yeah - you earned NOTHING but my CONTEMPT you dingbat!
I have issues with crap waiters/waitresses.. I used to do it, I know the rules.. I know HOW to EARN the tip - obviously these days more lessons are needed..

and now..
you are up to date with the latest Random Ramblings of a Crazy Lady!

I have been lame not updating but YAY update!

First off Restaurant.com is having an 80% off sale again, just enter the code PRESENT when you are checking out. A good deal - $25 gift certificates for only $2!

And I have been asked about the whole surveys, free things, and focus group things I have been doing.
I found a link online one day doing a search for something (I can't even remember what I was searching for now) that got this whole thing I do started. It is Real Women Real Money Work From Home. Jen (the lady that does the blog) posts every day except Sunday. Each day is it's own theme - Monday is Money Saving, Tuesday is Two-Fer, Wednesday is Wonderful Wednesday, Thursday is Thrifty Three-Fer, Friday is Focus Group and Saturday is Reader's Choice where you get to possibly win prizes too!
Go check it out and do some signing up! Jen only posts groups that she ACTUALLY makes money from, not just any old group at random!

Now on to the personal stuff with pictures!
At some point this week I am going to post a link to my daughter in her school play. Just because she said I can't put it on YouTube... she never said I couldn't put it elsewhere now did she! HA!

Today I want to share my birthday flowers.. birthday as in quite a few years back but *gasp* THEY STILL LIVE! Which is only because Super Awesome Boyfriend takes care of them. If I were to touch them they would sadly die as I have a terrible Black Thumb whereas his are both GREEN to match the rest of his fingers.. He can make anything grow and thrive!

They are Asiatic Lillies. Pretty aren't they!?
I love their color and this year they have bloomed out like mad!

Today we watched Super Awesome Boyfriend Play with his RC Crawler some more..
I giggle when he flips but that doesn't happen too much anymore dang it!

Also - pictures and video from Memorial Day Camping are up if you wanted to be snoopy and see them!
Pictures are here and video's can be found here
Well that's it for now! Will post more interesting pictures and gossip and other stuff later - including that link to Aesop's Fables starring my munchkin!

First off -

So this morning, Super Awesome Boyfriend is out on the deck watching the dudes across the street tear up the parking lot so they can redo it and he comes running in to let me know how STUPID one of the dudes is..
Seems the dump truck driver got there first (I saw him race in - way too fast for the dump truck whaddajerk) and then another car pulled up when I was inside. In this car was another guy and a girl. The guy was driving - he got out, then the chick got out and went around to the drivers seat. Then DumpTruckJerk got in the passenger's seat and they pulled into our lower drive where they sat and proceeded to PACK A BOWL!
Seriously... really?!
And being brilliant people they looked to the left, and looked to the right.. but never ONCE looked in front of them where Super Awesome Boyfriend was standing in PLAIN SIGHT on the deck.. LMFAO!
Reminds me of the old tenant we had that sat half pulled out of the carport in the upper lot with his sun roof open while we were turning over the unit above the carport (and we were out on the deck) and packed himself a nice fatty.. looking left and right but never up..

See.. there they are.. and so far they aren't such a great company.. wouldn't ever hire them.

Plant stuff!

Lookie the CUUUUTE baby red pepper! It's so purty!
