What happened to society?!?

I was channel surfing a few minutes ago and found something very disturbing. I happened to stop on the Jerry Springer show. Now mind you I only left it on for about 2 minutes. The show was titled I slept with my best friends' man. The guy they were arguing over was no looker. Heavily tattooed, severely overweight and just gross. The women were what I expect to be typical ladies they have on the show regularly.

I use the term ladies lightly. They didn't get into a physical fight over the man. Oh no! They had a 'Jerry Springer STRIP OFF'!!!

When did they start doing that on daytime TV?!? I had no idea that you could settle arguments by taking off your clothes in front of a live studio audience! Have I been arguing wrong all these years? To get my point across I need to take off my clothes?!?

I think I will stick to the traditional raising of the voice and walking away to argue. In fact after that spectacle I think the TV needs to get turned off and I need to open up a good book. I need to wash away those images from my brain!

Creative Juices flowing again.....

This past holiday weekend I decided to break out the beads and see what I could come up with.  I ordered some beads a couple of months ago, but haven't done much with them.

This first necklace is made from moonstone and Swarovski crystals with silver accent beads.
I love the Earthy tones in this.  It made me think of my sister in law who may be the recipient of this beauty.  
This little guy is mine, all mine.  I found the pendant and knew I had to make something with it.
I used black agate and Carnelian (the orangeish beads) and I really like it.  Now I want to get dressed up and head out for an evening so I can show it off.  I think I may make earrings to go with it.  We'll see.

A wii little accident

So, I am a spaz.  I can hurt myself doing the simplest of activities because I have a tendency to not pay attention to my surroundings.  I consider this a minor flaw, but a livable one.  Usually I just walk into the corner of the chest of drawers or end tables.  Or maybe the occasional getting my belt loop stuck on the door knob frame.  It is an every day event for me.
So last night the hubby and I were playing Super Swing Golf Season 2 and I went a little 'over the top' with one of my swings and I somehow kicked the glass door on our TV stand/console.  This is my ankle (It is a lot more bluish purple than the photo) this morning .  Luckily I didn't break the glass, but I woke up this morning in pain.  The bruise is right in the crease of my ankle so every time I take a step it stretches the skin and I can feel it.  

Will that stop me from playing again tonight?  I don't think so.   This time I will make sure to pay attention to my surroundings and not be a spaz.  Wish me luck with that one.
