Here is one of my photo that is currently being exhibited in Conrcordia  University.

You are going to have to bear with today. I had a different photo planned for this post but blogger will not let me upload a photo right now.

So anyways. I am going through some process right now that requires lots and lots of paperwork. And just when you think that you are done and can move on, there comes... MORE PAPERWORK!


Typically, I treat paperwork like a hot potato. Avoid it till you can, fill it up and then toss it as far as you can.

But it keeps coming back to me. Like a boomerang.

So far, I've filled about 40 different forms which make no sense to me. I've even had to prove that I am a natural person. Yep. a natural person.

I am also having to read a lot of legalese and let's just all collectively say, "Kill it".

Seriously you legal people! You need a decent writer and I know several who are available.

I swear one sentence has 140 words in it! How can that make any sense to anyone?

When the word of the year is unfriend, can you guys please simplify it so humans of this generation can understand?

At one point I had to stop and ask my hubby, "Look at me! I am so stunning and gorgeous. Do you think I was intended for this paperwork? Absolutely not. Make it stop!"

OK. I'll stop. The less we talk about my meltdown, the better.

So I am miserable and there is no end in sight. Someone tell me a joke please?

An elderly woman walked into the hospital and is asked immediately to fill out several forms. It took a long time, but when done, she was handed several more. Then she was asked to sign another form saying its ok to release information on the first six forms. The man asked for her insurance cards and made copies of them. Then he got another form that he would fill out by asking a series of questions. First question, "Why have you come to the hospital today? The old woman answered. I was coming to visit a friend, but it looks like I am out of time.

Me Mudder!

When me prayers were poorly said,
Who tucked me in me widdle bed,
And spanked me till me ass was red,
Me Mudder!

Who took me from me cozy cot,
Then put me on the ice cold pot,
And made me pee when I could not,
Me Mudder!

When the morning light would come,
And in me crib me dribbled some,
Who wiped me tiny widdle bum,
Me Mudder!

Who'd make me hair so neatly part,
And hug me gently to her heart,
Who sometimes squeezed me till me fart,
Me Mudder!

Who looked at me with eyebrows knit,
And nearly have a king size fit,
When in me Sunday pants me shit,
Me Mudder!

When at night her bed did squeak,
Me raised me head to have a peek,
Who yelled at me to go to sleep,
Me Fadder!

Had to search through my e-mails to find a joke because I am suffering from CRS.

That is a great picture and congrats on it being exhibited.

Filling out forms suck and I am not always sure why they need all that info. And then I always worry about identity theft when so much of our info is out there.

On one of our local news station they showed where someone had found a dipsty dumpster filled with boxes and boxes of personal information that people had filled out on government forms. It was just sitting there ripe for the taking. The forms were supposed to be destroyed, but someone took the cheap and easy way out. I hope that person got fired, but being that they work for the government, they probably got promoted.

Maybe if these people were actually allowed to be fired, then maybe they would do their jobs correctly. We pay their salaries and have no say in if we want to keep paying it. Something is so wrong with our government system right now. Maybe if the bad seeds were weeded out then maybe we would not be paying $500.00 for a hammer.

They showed that the U.N. pays almost $3000.00 for each pamphlet to be printed out in all the different languages, while a private company can do it for less than $400.00, which is still too high. I think that we the people are getting screwed and not having any fun while it is happening.

We need to learn how to put the screwdriver to better use and get rid of all the loose screws.

God bless.

PS...I can write one sentence with 140 words, it is a real talent...LOL

Note: Read the new flu info at the bottom of this email!

Mythos: Hilarious! Thank you for making me laugh. I am posting a joke at the bottom of this comment so do read it.

Nicole: I am sure you can relate! I feel bad complaining but oye. Too much! Never ending!

Mrsupole: Ha ha.Too funny! First of all, I challenge you to write a sentence with 140 words in it. Maybe all of us should play a game and write a grammatically accurate but incoherent and loooong sentence. That would be fun. And sigh. What can I say about the govt and spending?

New Flu

I went to a dinner party last night, where I and other guests enjoyed copious amounts of alcohol. I awoke this morning not feeling well, with what could be described as flu-like symptoms; headache, nausea, chills, sore eyes, etc. From the results of some initial testing, I have unfortunately tested positive for what experts are now calling "Wine Flu."

This debilitating condition is very serious - and it appears this is not an isolated case. Reports are flooding in from all around the country of others diagnosed with Wine Flu. To anyone that starts to exhibit the aforementioned tell-tale signs, experts are recommending a cup of tea and a bit of a lie down.

However, should your condition worsen, you should immediately rent a DVD and take some Advil (Advil seems to be the only drug available that has been proven to help combat this unusual type of flu). Others are reporting a McDonald's Happy Meal can also help in some cases. If not, then further application of the original liquid, in similar quantities to the original dose, has been shown to do the trick.

Wine Flu does not need to be life threatening and, if treated early, can be eradicated within a 24-48 hour period.


If you find you are complaining a lot, it may be that it has mutated into "Whine Flu." This is particularly common in men and can quickly spread to their partners where the symptoms are detected as a serious case of eye-rolling.

Paperwork is never fun! I hope you've muddled through, and don't have to worry about much more.

Nicole said...

I am turning into a serious case of "Take a deep breath" and "don't get those eyes stuck by rolling too often".....
Can we share a soundproof chamber to start screaming together?
Just a bit?

Elizabeth: I procrastinated as much as I could and then had to deal with it. But it all worked out in the end.

Nicole: Amen sista! I so hear you. Sigh.
