Baby New Year!

Holy Crap! Yesterday brought a big bundle of Christmas joy to a chinese couple; the poor woman gave birth to a 15lb, 1' baby boy on christmas eve! Ladies can you even wrap your head around that? I am hoping for this poor woman's sake she had a C-section and didn't have to deliver that sack of potatoes vaginally!

WWF Vatican Style

I am sitting here on Christmas morning, 2009 watching the Today show, enjoying my coffee and thinking ahead to the wonderful day I'll be spending with my family, when Anne reports a story about the Pope. I was barely paying attention, sipping coffee and smoking a cigarette, then I heard "the pope is doing fine today after last's night assault". WTF? Who in the hell assaults the most Holy man on the planet? I wasn't sure I heard correctly so pushed the cat off of my lap and turned the volume up on the tv, waiting for the Today show to repeat the report.

Sure as shit, that's what Anne had said; a "mentally-unstable" woman leaped over several people into the center aisle and took down the pope like a WWF wrestler. What in the world? I don't claim to be religious but seriously what vendetta could this woman have against Mr. Pope? Then I heard that this same woman tried to dropkick the Pope last year as well, but I'm assuming she didn't get to actually do it. What a crazy fucked up world we live in, when the Pope is assaulted during a Christmas Eve mass. I feel bad for humanity today.

Christmas isn't about presents, and trees, and miseltoe; Christmas is about the rebirth of spirituality. Today hold your loved ones close and remember the true meaning of Christmas, and pray for the crazy lady who attacked the damn Pope!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good nite!

I'd just like to take a minute out of a very Hectic day to wish the blogosphere a very Merry Christmas!
I am usually not a very sentimental person but this year Christmas feels different for me, in a good way I might add. Last year I was still devastated by the loss of my ex and didn't want to be festive in any way. However, this holiday season I am in a much better place emotionally. I am looking forward to spending the day with my family and I am even planning on toasting my wonderful parents for their love and support.
I am coming to the end of my schooling and I am swelled with pride and joy. I couldn't have done any of this without the support of my family and I need to take the time out and recognize this. It seems a lifetime ago that I was so self-centered and destructive. When I was addicted to heroin, nothing else mattered to me and I could never have imagined I'd be graduating from school, working in a medical office or paying my bills. I've come a long way, but still my journey continues. I don't allow myself to get overly proud, cockiness will take me back to the places I've worked so hard on leaving behind, I never ever forget that.
So anyways I'd like to wish everybody a happy and healthy holiday season and good luck in the new year!
On a side note I was introduced to a new blog this morning and I thought I'd share it with you all, go check out: its pretty awesome!

Just Wrong

You know what really upset me? When women take for granted all it means to bring new life into the world.

There's a couple who come into the restaurant, who are nice enough and tip well, but they actually disgust me.

They are definately what I would consider alcoholics. That isn't the problem. What bothers me is that they have a baby whom they a. drink and drive with and b. sit at the bar with. A bar is no place for a kid, no matter that the baby isn't really understanding what is going on around her, it's just not the place. It'd be one thing if they were parked in a booth on the side of the bar, but no these two were bellied up to the bar, toddler in lap. So right there in the middle of his Maker's Mart on the rocks and her cabernet was tinker toys! The gentelment sitting next to them was clearly pissed off and uncomfortable; as well as he should be.

Speaking of bellying up to the bar: I didn't mention that this woman is prego. Now before anyone splits their panties in an uproar, I'm not talking about an occasion glass of wine during pregnancy. This lady sucks down atleast 5 glasses each time she is in our restaurant, who knows how much she drinks at home. Here's another startling fact: this couple has lost a baby before. I don't know the specifics but I'm willing to bet money that it had something to do with drinking/fetal alcohol syndrome.

I am not usually someone who judges, seeing as I myself had an addiction problem. I don't have any children though. It infuriates me that as a gay single woman in PA, I could probably Never adopt a baby and this couple is taking for granted the one that is already born and taking unnecessary risks with the unborn one.
