My V-Day was full of wonderful goodies and gifts that keep on giving. I woke up to fresh 7-11 coffee (my fav because it is way better and cheaper than Starfucks), roses, chocolates, earrings, and a card that contained a one hour massage redeemable anytime I want it!
I got him some new slippers that he can wear outside, some night britches, and some nice Nike’s; you can’t tell by this picture, but the contrasting dark color is a deep hunter green. I love that color!
An added bonus to his and my V-Day was that everything I got him actually fit and he liked everything! I am shocked myself; I suppose that I’ve finally gotten to know a little bit about him over the last 14 years or so. Lol
The Royals had a good V-Day too, they love the shoe boxes! I don’t know how, but Cracker managed to get his whole fat ass inside to take a nice long nap.
So yeah, Valentine’s Day was pretty good this year and made even better with all the material possessions meager money was able to buy…
And moving on, I started classes again after a much need break recently. I hope that I can keep my focus up and maintain my GPA, I’ll be busy trying to keep up for like the next year or more, so I really shouldn’t focus on unimportant things like blogs… lol
That being said, I just wanted to post a few pics and show off my Valentine gifts. I’ll close with a picture of Tiger laying on my sister-n-law. Love was in the air… or maybe he’s just a whore; he’ll cuddle up to love on anyone that lets him!

School seems central to anything good that may happen in my future. I’ve been waiting on my school money so that I can fix Red once and for all (and it just came in today). Everyone has been advising me to get another used car but I REFUSE! Some of you may even think that I am crazy, but I do have logical reasons for holding on to Red.
Her body is not my ideal in a vehicle, I mean, I’m like any other American when I say I LOVE a sporty body on a car; something small and sleek. But what Red lacks in outward beauty she makes up for in her functionality. She has great mileage per gallon because of her small engine; for more than five years now she had been low maintenance and had gotten me from place A to place B and back again safely and for the most part, reliably. I have known her for a long time so I know how she has been treated and maintained. I vow to maintain her better from on as well.
Another reason for keeping Red alive has recently crossed my mind; my sister, bless her heart, locks her keys in her car from time to time, so when I asked her why she didn’t just make a few copies to keep around she informed me that one key to her vehicle would cost her almost $100 dollars!! I was flabbergasted at this amount, and then she says that a copy without a computer chip inside, a valet copy, would cost only half that. I am amazed that she said “only half”. A copy of my car key costs me about $1 dollar, and $5 if the shop is booshi (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=booshi urban dictionary for those that just don’t know). So, the low cost of an extra key is just another plus on Red’s side.
And not to leave out what I think may be the best reason I can give in these trying financial times… Red is paid for, I bought her with cash and have never made one payment further, I own her outright. Also, since she is an older model, she is very affordable when it comes to insurance, tags, and tax. I’m taking her in for a diagnostic check up as soon as possible; let’s hope she can be brought back to her prime soon.
Si is still ill and away; the Royal Love-Smith’s and I miss him. But there is good news here, he will be back home next week, the doctors have fixed the issue he was having with his arm and they are just holding him for a few more days for monitoring. When doctors say that, I usually translate it to mean that they aren’t sure what might happen next or don’t know what is ultimately wrong. Either way, it’s minor and besides feeling lonely and imprisoned, he feels well; he just wants to be home of course.
I’ve been spoiling him to death for some reason; he just deserves it I suppose. He has been whining about needing a Snuggie for months now, that and a Ped Egg. I found both at Walgreen’s for him. He loves that damn Snuggie… Lol. Then I got him a couple of games for his PS2 to help pass the time. Anyway, he will home soon.
The Royal Love-Smith’s have a local enemy cat that lives outside. This cat comes around all the time and taunts them, driving the Love-Smith’s crazy so that they hiss, hit and scratch at the windows. I finally caught the culprit sleeping on my porch.
But I still had to shoo it away for the sake of the Royals. I think it has home nearby somewhere, it looks well fed.
