My Latest...

Yes. I am super-proud of myself over here. Been creatively busy for the last few days... just thought I would share.

The top piece is a custom-made title from Photoshop, I wanted to make something to coordinate with the Autumn Leaves "French Twist" Rub-ons that I was going to use on a scrapbook page. The completed page, below. It is a little on the busy side, but I am satisfied with the way it turned out!!

Naughty Tag...

OK... I'll play along here, Jilly-O...

So my friend Jill sent me {THIS} thing... blog tag... I'm it... Here it is:

Okay...so it's great to talk about your favorite foods and bad habits, but let's get a little naughty. Remember that Friends episode where you get to make a list of your absolute favorite celebrities you would love to spend some "quality time" with and your spouse or significant other cannot complain, because they might just meet one of the celebrities on their own list? Ross had Isabella Rossellini on his list, but crossed her off and then ended up meeting her... Well who are your favorites?

Please share your top five to ten celebrities with a bit of an explanation of why they made your list. Then go and tag 5 of your friends.

My "FRIENDS" celebrity list consists of the following actors:

1. Orlando Bloom - (especially if he is in the Elf costume, LOL!! sry, have a thing for hot elves :) Uh... yeah. I told Travis that if he asked me to marry him I would have to leave. He's super-hot. Pirate/elf/you know, he could be ANYTHING and he'd still bet HOT.
2. Justin Timberlake - HAVE YOU SEEN THE SEXYBACK VIDEO? Nuff said.
3. Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park - boy can he sing (better than Chester's screaming) and he can play the keyboard and the guitar and God knows what else he can do...
4. Eminem - white trash, but I would do it :) Something about the way he raps, and the blonde hair/white T-shirt combo...
5 . Dane Cook - he is SUPER crazy and probably the hottest comedian ever. I might cross him off for Johnny Depp, although Depp's a little strange for my tastes at times!! But Dane Cook for sure (and the pickles and the shakes and the cheesy pickles... GET SOME SAUCE NOW!!!)

Uh yeah, and I've never met anyone that was famous and hot, well, unless you count the Backstreet Boys when they PLAYED A CONCERT AT MY SCHOOL when I was in 8th Grade. Yeah, it was before they were famous, but it was awesome at the time! Think I still have a book cover w/ their autographs SOMEWHERE...

People I'm going to tag:

mrsvo, andyshell4, basketballqueen, txalliegirl, lynette150, brigid16

Still Going Cr@zy Over Here...

A week (almost) later, I am still going NUTS over the new Linkin Park CD, "Minutes to Midnight". I listened to it twice straight through the minute I got it, and I think I love just about every song on it. Watched the online AOL Concert as well, and it totally rocked!! Tickets for a show here in Ohio went on sale Saturday, and my BFF Shannon is going to try like hell to at least get us all lawn seats!! They are a band that's DEFINITELY worth seeing live...

In honor of them this week, my favorite Linkin Park song ever, for Music Video Monday, in all its Moshiness....

by Linkin Park

Enjoy, Cr@zies.

Cr@zy Peanut Butter - P.B. Loco

OK, when… how…. I want to know why I didn’t know about this before now!!

P.B. Loco — “The Adult Peanut Butter”

Yes, it’s true. They have hacked into one of our childhood favorites and made it worse for us than it might already be. P.B. Loco is a manufacturer and distributor of specialty gourmet peanut butters. In addition to that, they have several locations around the country called “Peanutbutterlicious Cafes”, where PB lovers can go and enjoy their yum-o creations in the form of horrible, horrible sandwiches, wraps, freezes, and more. Take this for example:

Peanut Butter with CoCo Banana
Deep, rich chocolate and bananas from the heart of the untamed jungle fused with our premium peanut butter”
(image & quote from P.B. Loco Website)

On their website, they offer recipes and the ability to purchase their peanut butters, as well as some other helpful (awful) info including the Menu at their “restaurant” and a map of locations and such.

And all I have to ask is WHY? Loco = Cr@zy, maybe there’s a connection…

thanks to Boing Boing for the heads up.

Some More Blogthings...

More cr@zy info about me…. Things even I don’t want to know!


You are 54% Pure.
You're not so innocent... in fact, you're quite unpure. You have seen and experience a lot. And you're no worse for the wear!



Ani DiFranco.
Honest, real, and well liked. You're not limited by any boundaries. "And you can call me crazy / But I think you're as lazy as white paint on the wall"


You see the world with an artist's eye. Finding beauty is easy for you - even in the dullest of moments. You notice all of the colors of the world, from fresh grass to sunsets. You are a total optimist and hedonist. You love to drink life in.

MY 1920’s NAME IS: Lelia Ivory.


You are beyond creative. You are a true artist - even if it's not in the conventional sense of the word. You love creating for its own sake, and you find yourself quite inspired at times.

Sometimes it’s a little scary how accurate these things are!!

Stop, Drop, and ROFLMAOMGWTFBBQ!!!!11111

Yeah, I said it.

I don't know what it means, but I said it, so there.

Remember in grade school, the good ol' stop, drop and roll? You know, if you're on fire, just drop to the ground and roll around to put the flames out. You know what most people do? Run around screaming until someone puts them out. Stop, drop, and roll goes out the window when you're really on fire, even if it was fun to practice in Gym Class (and pretend you were doing Ninja rolls, LOLz...)

OK, so they even had the posters to go with it, you know the ones, with the duotone lineart pictures with the big red arrows... They depicted the steps for you, no words involved, so even those who couldn't read would understand what they meant. My favorite was the Choking Poster - it was in every School Cafeteria across the country in the 80's... You know, demonstrating the Heimlich maneuver and the sign for choking and all of that? That is one thing from my childhood I will never forget. They had the picture, the with the guy, who had already choked and it says "Turns Blue - Call 911"... the guy who looked like Darth Vader, unmasked and dying, with a blue duotone shaded face. Hmm... Yeah I'd say if I was a little kid and I saw that, I would RUN.

I told you all of that to bring you this little bit of humor. These images circulated around in an email message for quite some time; I just rediscovered them and laughed 'till I had tears coming out of my eyes. Not because it's funny, but because, sadly, very accurate.

"DUCT AND COVER" - Retro Government Security Instruction Signs
(60 years later, we find out things were definitely amiss...)

RULE #1:

If you are on fire, do not run.

RULE #2:

If you spot a big red arrow, pin it against the wall with your shoulder.


If you are sprayed with a hazardous chemical, you should think about it carefully before seeking treatment.

RULE #4:

If a building falls on you, you can use a flashlight to lift the debris right off!

RULE #5:

Hurricanes, dead fish, and the Biohazard Symbol have a lot in common - think about it!

RULE #6:

Watch out for Terrorists that have Pink Eye and Leprosy. They are known to rub their hands together maniacally!

RULE #7:

If a door is closed, Karate Chop it open.

RULE #8:

Try to absorb as much radiation as possible with your groin area. After 5 minutes and 12 seconds, you may become sterile.

RULE #9:

Exposure to radiation may cause you to mutate to gigantic dimensions: Watch Your Head.

RULE #10:

If you're a radiation-exposed mutant with a deformed hand, close the window. No one wants to see that sh*t.

RULE #11:

If your lungs an stomach start talking, stand with your arms akimbo to cause a reaction that creates bacteria, and they will stop.

RULE #12:

If you are trapped under falling debris, conserve oxygen by not farting.

RULE #13:

Do not drive a station wagon if a power pole is protruding from the hood.

RULE #14:

A thin wall should be sufficient protection against radiation.


Always remember to carry food with you during a Terrorist Attack. At least you will be able to enjoy a nice Coke and an apple before you die!

Think about that one for awhile...

Who even thinks of this stuff... musta been someone cr@zy!

It's a beautiful Friday here in Ohio!! I have been playing with Pandora and FineTune all day, it seems like it's been forever since I listened to some good music.

Go check out FineTune. That is, if you want to make a playlist of the best 45 songs ever. Of course, you get to make more than one playlist... so... have at it. And if you're in the mood for something new, check out Pandora. They have customized radio stations that adapt themselves to your music likes and dislikes through little thumbs up/down buttons and eventually you will start hearing more music you like, some even from people you've never heard of!!

How cr@zy is that for a change?? (Not really, but I had to think of something to say to wrap this up! BYE!!)

OK, it's Music Video Monday again!! LOLz.

My friend Jilly-Bean told me last week about this awesome band called Flyleaf. They are a North Texas Rock Ensemble with a Chick Lead Singer. Which always registers as cool in my book.

Their sound is unique, their lyrics are fascinating. Worth checking out while we're waiting for Linkin Park (1 week and counting - 10,621 Minutes to Midnight!!) Here's the vid for their song, "Fully Alive":

Also, visit their website: FLYLEAF.

I'm always cr@zy about new music... Thanks Jilly :)
