I am absolutely furious as I write this. I never thought my respect for the Bush party could drop further than it is. I was obviously wrong in this aspect.

Earlier today, my earlier elderly mother (who for the record is NOT registered to vote) received a survey from National Reublican Senatorial Committee. She thought this was odd, because as I said, she's not registered to vote. My father is registered, but as a Democrat.

At the main page of the survey, it states:
"Notice: This SURVEY DOCUMENT IS REGISTERED IN YOUR NAME and -must be accounted for upon completion of this project-. If you choose notto participate in the crucial Republican Majority Leader's Survey, return this Survey Document at once using the postage paid envelope provided."

On several places of the survey it proclaims in large letters "Official Republican Party Document - Do Not Destroy". The majority of the survey appears to be (at least to us) anti-Democratic propaganda while the rest are questions regarding Bush's preformance in the office. There are several mentions of donations (ranging from $20 -$50) through out the entire survey, and two page cover letter). There are also several mentions of using the information to support "George W. Bush's Grassroots Campaign."

Most of this wouldn't raise an eyebrow. I figure that its standard political campaigning for the two major parties. However, the ending turned my stomach and has severly frightened my parents.

The last page of the survey is made up of a section for credit card information, comments, and a nice lovely statement saying the "No. I do not wish to participate in the Survey, nor do I wish to make a donation to help the Republican Party. However, I am returning my Survey Document, along with a contribution of $11 to help cover the cost of tabulating and redistributing my Survey.

Even with filling in the survey, there is no option to not to donate. The way it is written sounds like you have to send them money whether you want to or not. This makes me soo angry.

How dare they attempt to coerce and FRIGHTEN people(and the paranoid person in me bets that most of these were sent to elderly people) into donating to their party. If this isn't illegial, then it really sounds like its close. My mother was (and still is) scared that they were going to come after her because she doesn't want to dontate to them.

I don't know if this information is useful to you guys, and most likely you already know about it. This, however, is my first true experience with matters like this, and I am absolutely outraged. I have no problems scanning off both the cover letter and the survey itself and sending them in, if desired. I just hate to see these people get away with what I perceive as a rouse to force donations from private citizens.

Hmm.. man Larry made me mad today. He absolutely refused to tell me that he had a show tonight. Like I didn't know, but you know what? It'd be nice if HE'D tell me. Not Sammy, not Andy, not his buggering website (which he suggested that I read). And to top it all of, he had the nerve to get mad at ME. That didn't go over very well. He stormed out of the house and I decided to haul my arse up and get dressed. And get dressed I did. Damn I looked cute, lol. I love my little 60s dress.

Anways, he applogized when he got back, and added that he had shows next weekend, too. Yay.

But, HE GOT CALLED BACK TO GOODYEAR!!!!!! HAPPY DANCE!!!!!!

That made me so happy. Its finally over. We'll have money again. Yay!

I went to the movies tonight and saw The Whole 10 Yards. I liked it. At one point I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. I also got Taco Bell afterwards. Yum.

I may get to spend next weekend in Jackson. That may be interesting, if I even get to go, lol. I think it would be fun.

Hmm, well its been a long time since I've been able to update this. Ah, the fun.

Today's been a right ok day. I haven't done much, but still, thats ok. Its been relaxing and quite peaceful. Morgan was a little rotten, but not too bad. She feel asleep pretty early, too. Yay! Me time that doesn't happen at 2 in the morning.

Man Alyssa made me mad today, though. I messaged her to invite Lexy to Morgan's birthday party. She asks 'what time' cause she had to pick up Andy from work. I tell her and she says that "We can't expect them to skip work for this" Like, what the hell? What did I say to deserve such a snarky reply. Oh well. I've stood up for her in the past, but fuck her.

Past that bit of trouble, everything else was nice. At 8, me and Jamie went to Momma's to tan. For some reason, the bottom bulbs wouldn't come on (its been doing this for a couple of days), so we fought with the plexiglass to go it off, and took out most of the bulbs to see if that would help. Nope.

So we call Pam. She tells us to take out the bulbs, and the little fuse things. Well, we've tried that already. She can't think of anything else. A few momments later she calls back, saying that the plug from the bottom might be bad and for us to check that. So we do. And guess what? Its unplugged. Oh boy. Taking that stupid plastic off is a LOT of work. We weren't very happy in the annoyed-amused sort of way. So we plug it and, wala! The bottom works. I'm a little red, but hey, it could be worse.

I am so sleepy right now.

I think I'm going to give this a new layout. Yay!

Surprisingly enough, I'm excited about this weekend.

This weekend is not only Julian's birthday party (damn its a shame when a toddler's birthday celebration is the ONLY thing you've to look forward to), but Carbon Black is playing a show in Paducah. I still haven't decided if I'm going to go or not.

John "I'm a fat fucking crook and I need to have the fuck beat out of me' Bunch has not sent me my W2 yet. He gets the irs turned on him soon. Larry doesn't want me to, but I'm going to do so anyway. I hate that son of a bitch, so I'm going after him.

My leg isn't getting any better, but I don't want to go back to the doctors office. It itches so badly right now I can't stand it. It hurts pretty badly, too. Also, earlier I sighed and it felt like it was going to explode. I could feel the sigh all the way down my leg, like the skin puffed out from inside or something. Weird, huh?

Morgan dumped my candle blessing oil out all over the bathroom counter. I have to figure out how to suck it up (no sucky thing is handy :S) and get it back in the bottle as its the only bottle I have.

Larry ended up having to pay in 365$ to Kentucky in taxes because THEY fucked up. Like its worth $5 to live here. *snorts*

Ok, so I've been lazy and haven't updated in a while. Not like anyone really gives a damn, eh? lol

This week has went by so quickly. Larry's off this Friday and I'm going to try to get him to go with me to see The Butterfly Effect. Lillie, the kids, and I are all going bowling Friday. Yeah. Sounds like fun. Real fun.

What did I get myself into?

My leg is really hurting tonight. :S

Christmas went over rather well. Amongst other things, I got a personal cd player, a $50 gift certificate to Lane Bryant, clothes, dishes, some really pretty rose candles that smell really really bad (but they're gorgeous, so thats ok), books, and a lot of sewing related stuff from Kena. No bathstuff this year :(

Thats ok. Walmart has stuff on sale. ^_^

Morgan had a wonderful time. She got lots of toys, including a bouncy horse, which is bigger than she is. But she absolutely loves 'horsey'. She also got a vcr, some movies, and quite a few items of clothing.

One of Larry's coworkers (one that he has spoken to less than a handful of times, non the less) overheard him saying that we were struggling this time of the year with the layoff. Apparantely we are worse off than he has been letting on (and now I feel uber guilty about buying that purse, which btw is uber cute). I knew we were doing bad, but making it with a bit to spare. Apparently we won't be making it this month. He has a 3 week layoff this month. Lovely.

On a lighter note, I was rearranging the shed yesterday so I could put the XMas decorations back and found some dirty magazines (from 99) in a box. One was a Penthouse Letters (which was actually pretty cool), and the other was a Hustler. Not just a Hustler, but a Hustler with 'watersports' featured prominetly on the cover. By the time I made it into the house I was laughing so hard I couldn't stand up. I ended up peeking in the door of the bedroom, and then shutting it quickly and falling onto the floor. Larry isn't exactly a watersports kind of guy.

I finally make it in there and throw the magazine (still laughing) at him and screech 'You bought the pee issue!?'
I then fall over again, while informing him that sorry, but I just couldn't bring myself to pee on him. He thought that was funny and related to me the amusing story of how he got them.

I still giggle when I see them.
