Textbook Education

My total for 3 textbooks came to $455.00

Texas Governement  95$ New

Macroeconomics 170$ New

American History II 120$ New

All the used was taken and now that I think about it, I should rent all 3 books at $150 for the semester.

I spent more on these three books than I did buying my fall wardrobe!!
I was going to finish my fall look with a burberry blouse but I have to settle for the burberry skirt I hopefully, cross your fingers, win on ebay today.

I understand the scam of the textbook. And if the professors are making a decent living on the residuals they get from these books than the scam is fine by me.

Its not!

The book dealers and the publishers are making a nice killing while holding my personal bank for book ransom.

Highway robbery at its finest.

Edition 14, 15, and so on which are all the same book but with the pages mixed up in each new edition so you are forced to buy the new one or be lost in the follow along program in class.

Used books are even worse. You pay 3/4 of the original price for the book-and being old school- I get a little ticked that the previous student highlighted or marked it up.

What if the student sucked in his highlighting and note taking and I get caught up in his/her bright yellow idiot marks?

Anyhoo,

Summer is officially over and I have permanently put a cork in my wine and spirited play and have just settled in to my haute couture textbooks for a long fall lesson.

And I still can sell my books on craigslist or amazon at the end of the semester for more than what textbook.com will give me trade-in for.


The Blonde is learning the price of things!

finger eleven - One Thing



Today's musical gift to you!! Hope you enjoy!

You will be redirected and deal with 10 seconds of ads but well worth the beauty of this song!

The Blonde is busy with other things!

Best Break Up Therapy

Online Shopping!!

I am gearing up for fall fashion and with the online sales, I can get a little more bang for my buck.
Like the Victoria Secret Motorcycle jacket for $78 originally $228. It will go perfectly with my Ebay purchased Uggs.
I also hit J.Crew sales for my preppy inspired looks but I ended up with a few military staples.

The most important find of the century is discovering that Zara will offer online shopping September 8!!

Now all I need is a blue blazer, argyle sweater, burberry shirt and skirt, and I am set for the fall fun!

The best way to feel better about yourself after a break up is to fix yourself up and get back out there and enjoy life.

The Blonde is under repair!!

Cool as Cool Gets

They look like an Abercrombie and Fitch Ad.

Better late than Never

is fine on some things but when it comes to financial aid, the fed ex slogan needs to apply.


"When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight"


I have emailed, telephoned, and now I am incommunicado with financial aid because those less lazy have gone down in person and have a line formed that would be worth standing only if they were handing out the aid in cash. meanwhile I will wait for my electronic response because I am a lazy x-generation student that feels its a waste of gas to get nowhere.


In the meantime, I was able to purchase my books and begin class which is a good thing because it will take my mind of other things.


I am still upset about my missing kitty cat and last night I had an awful dream that he came home with his tail end shredded off. And to make matters worse, I was awoken from this dream by a horrible screeching sound outside my window. My heart was racing and I jumped from the bed, still half asleep, and opened the window to see what was going on. I thought an animal was being torn apart outside but alas....


NOPE!!


It was the air conditioner unit. Not sure if it was mine or the neighbors but the sound stop and I was wide awake for the rest of the morning. 


What the hell am I supposed to do with awakeness at 7 am in the morning!? 


I don;t need a jump start on my day!


So...


I went for a walk looking for my long lost furry baby, again.


I will take the signs down in a couple of days and eventually my search will end and the guilt will continue and the hope that one day he might be back will take a long time to die down in my heart.


I just hope wherever he is...that he hasn't or doesn't suffer.


In the meantime...


The Blonde says hooo-rah for school again!!

The Full Moon?

Is it a glitch or is it evil at its bewitching hour?

Thrice I have tried to post this blog and thrice it went blank.

After pouring my heart and soul into the matter three times before, I have only this to offer.

A freak in an early 90s model red Chevy truck stalked my arse as I jogged the main street in my hood enough to make me duck in hedges and wait out his drive by's. I finally got home and was so disturbed by the freak that I called the PD.

I am used to some brake and flirt when I run on the road  but this was beyond harmless play. This dude waited in side streets while traffic chilled and than he bolted toward me.

If I see this truck again, he is the one who will need to run!!

The Blonde is shaken but not deterred!!

I Am Lost

even more so than my cat!!

A lot of things have been lost in the past few weeks. 

People

Fish

A Cat

Love

The only thing I haven't lost is my luggage. Its such a good set of luggage too. 

Guaranteed to pack up a relationship in less than an hour with room to spare for a broken heart.

I don't know what life has in store for me. I am sure calling God a dick didn't help any but lately he hasn't helped much anyway.

Like I say:

 if you want a life done right; you have to do it yourself!



The Blonde is soul searching!!


PS. Sorry I called you a dick, God!!

Where is Peppy?


My flyer campaign is working. It would have worked better had my family put them up while I was in Dallas. I knew they wouldn't put up posters. Slackers!!

Anyhoo,

the frustration and feeling helpless in Dallas just burst open the other day and I am now home looking feverishly for my little guy.

I don't know if I will find him but at least I feel better that I am doing everything possible to find him.

If you want a job done right, sometimes you just have to do it yourself.


The Blonde will find something!!

I'm not asking

and I am not praying....

I am telling you GOD....

Bring back my cat!!

I don't deserve this.

I am sick and tired of always looking over my shoulder to see what you will do to fuck up my day.
Just when I think things are going well...you throw a right hook and wipe the floor with me.

wHAT THE f DID I EVER DO TO YOU?

I have fucking had it!!

BRING BACK MY CAT!

The Blonde is beginning to think GOD is a dick!!

Oops, My Blonde

My fish was just at the other end of the pond!!

Blonde Moment!

My Fish Is Gone

We bought new fish for the pond and one in particular seemed to be an old soul that I knew. It would come to me every time I went outside and let me pet it.

Today, it was gone.

Vanished.

And I can't help but think what soul came by to revisit me?

And why did it have to leave so suddenly?

I guess nature is that way. And if we are smart enough to view it in its proper form, we get so much out of such an insignificant creature in such little amount of time.

I knew from the beginning that fish would not be with me long. I knew it but still a little bit of shock and sadness runs through me today.

I thought I would have just a bit longer with it.

I hoped it would stay even though deep down it would go soon.

Funny how things are, don't you think?

A brief encounter with a fish leaves an empty spot in my soul and I am still glad I got the chance to love it just a little bit.

I just wish I loved it more in the short time I had.

Its poetic considering the things that have happened around me lately.

Goodbye my sweet fish.

Good night my sweet soul, wherever and whom ever you may be.

I am alright if that's what you were wondering.


The Blonde still remains true to her nature!!
