Week in Review (May 21-27)

Recovered from a nice four-day weekend in Havasu. Lots of fun!

Confirmed that the bar where Johnny and I first met, Sharkeez, had in fact burned down.

Waited in line at the DMV to change my name on my driver's license.

Waited in a much longer line at the Social Security Office to change my name on my social security card. That experience was a nightmare.

Still battling with the issues of our Durango. First it was recalled for a computer crash but that was fixed. The very next day, Johnny towed the boat with the truck to Lake Mead and when he launched the boat, the air-intake-thinga-ma-jiggie got wet causing the truck to misfire.

After 16 days I finally have my baby back. But my thrill was short-lived when it still showed signs of having the same problem. The dealership has been very accomodating by letting us have our pick of any vehicle off their lot so we can have a truck to tow our boat to Lake Mead for Memorial Weekend. They wouldn't normally just lend any vehicle from their inventory for any customer. It helps that Johnny is good friends with the second in command to the owner. Plus they'd rather not spend another $700 on another weeks' car rental for us.

I been running around all over Vegas doing my errands all day and getting the runaround. I'll spare the details but will mention that I am happy to be married and don't plan to ever remarry so I will never need to go to David's Bridal for a wedding dress. I was given conflicting information on which I relied on and when I realized that I will not be able to get my dress dry cleaned through them, I wanted to jump over the counter and bitch-slap their rep.

Errands completed, I felt what it was like to be a taxicab driver. Except I had no passengers to pick up and dropped off and the only thing I was hauling around was my fat ass.

I am finally home and thought I would share the album I spent countless hours compiling, organizing, editing and uploading to Imagestation only to find out that my account was "deactivated". How could this possibly be? I have a paid membership with priviledges! Perhaps it was because another one of my albums contained photos of "pornographic nature" that were "offensive to the community" which violated my user agreement with Imagestation? I'm sorry, I had no idea that photos of people having fun in Havasu, which is a lake, and when the temperature is 104 degrees people wear bikinis in the water to stay cool, be comfortable and look good...not long johns! Trust me, there are some real pornographic material on the Internet that are way worse than the photos on my album. Even the streets of Vegas are full of billboards and material that would be considered "pornographic"!

Evidently, some sicko pervert was surfing the literally 1,000's of albums online through Imagestation and was "offended" by my photos like the one I posted about Havasu. Okay, there were families in Havasu, young kids skimboarding and having fun--who weren't offended by what people were wearing. So if it was a public gathering, how offensive can photos be of the public gathering?! I'm pissed off that I can't share my wedding album, pissed off at that overly conservative no-skin-showing police who had forgotten that sex was how they were conceived, and pissed off at Imagestation for agreeing with that oppressed Peeping Tom blabbermouth that my photos were "pornographic" and "offensive". Don't look then!

What kind of photos were they expecting to see when they saw an album titled "Lake Havasu" and people on the beach on the cover? GASP--what a surprise! Girls in bikinis and half-naked men. Obviously they couldn't turn away and kept scrolling through the pictures until "Oh my heavens, what on Earth is she wearing?!". It's a bikini, b-i-k-i-n-i, you know...what people wear at the beach? I bet I could put a bikini on my cute little cat and be "deactivated" for it.

Well, I have better things to do than to continue ranting. It's gonna be a lovely three-day weekend. I am going to shut off my laptop so I can go into the kitchen and cook my hard working sweetheart of a husband a nice dinner. While I am cooking, I am going to wear my Malibu Strings bikini. The little tiny one with the sheer black mesh material and glitter micro bi-ki-ni. Exactly like this one:

Try censoring this...MUAH HA HA HA HA!! Perhaps I will post pics of me cooking in my bi-ki-ni as well. Some people may say I have no shame. I say hey--I'm happy, healthy, I have a great husband who makes me happy and I like to please. I have one life, one body (and it's not too bad looking) and I'm a gonna enjoy everything for as long as I possibly can. At least I don't push my bi-ki-ni in any one's face. And in the case of the Imagestation nark, if you don't like it, don't look--and don't go looking for it either.
