This cracked me up…

If you have no idea what I do for a living, just know this, the dull moments are far & few as of late.

The file is 8 pages long – you will need to put up 16 posters to
complete this task (thus, you will need to print out the file twice.) Each page has a short story on it in its entirety – you should put them up somewhere plausibly arty or intellectual – for instance, on the campus of a university, or in a bohemian part of town like the Mission in San Francisco or Greenwich Village in Manhattan. Examples of places that are not appropriate for the posters are primeval rainforest, municipal parking lots, cattleyards, elementary schools, the top of Everest, the void of interstellar space, Bob Jones University and depressed industrial parks. Within these guidelines, be creative – I’ll settle for anyplace people are likely to be avid
readers and interested in the arts.

High-traffic, captive audience kinds of places are always good – toll plazas on bridges, public transportation and so on (if this can be safely, legally and courteously done, that is.)


Sometimes… You Just Don’t Have Words.

Posted in Real Life with tags , , on January 29, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

You know the saying: sometimes you’re the fly & sometimes you’re the windshield? Yah well I’m feeling like the fly today, except not only did I splatter on the windshield but my ex husband came up & fucked me in the ass while I died. I can’t even begin to explain how many levels of screwed he gave me in a matter of just a few hours. The woman he has living with him (she’ll remain nameless because I don’t mean her any ill will – I was fucked in the head once too) has a blog. She leaves comments off, I’m sure with good reason because heaven forbid someone remove her rose colored glasses. I went to visit it today because after all he has put me thru today I needed a laugh. Here’s what she says about the man who committed tax fraud on mine & my two sons’ behalf and screwed us out of our tax return. (IRS will flag it & review at their convenience)

I am so greatful for Nite and I love him with all my heart and soul. He is the finest man I have ever known. He has incredible integrity and loyalty to his family and friends. I am honored to be with this man… I love you Nite! your my hero!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Wait…. wait…. hold on a sec…. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! There’s more but I think I snorted on it. THE FINEST MAN! INTEGRITY? Oh don’t even get me started on loyalty!!!! HAH! I’m sure it is a great honor to support this man! Yup!

16 Things about Hawks

Posted in challenge/meme, FYI, Introduction(s), Real Life with tags , , on January 14, 2009 by hawksrock

1)  I have travelled to 27 countries to date:  USA, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Trinidad & Tobago, Panama, El Salvador, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Czech Rep, Hungary.  (If Vatican City counts then 28 )

2)  I am the oldest of 7 siblings, and I am still very close to all of them.   Ironically, I may be closest to the youngest who is 18 years younger.

3)  I am extremely competitive at anything and everything that can be measured.

4)  I have learned the hard way that money does not buy you happiness.

5)  I am drawn to people who have a passion for living and doing no matter how odd their hobby or interests.

6)  I started working at the age of 12 mowing lawns, and have been working ever since.

7) My father put me to work in a beef-packing plant at the age of 18 to “learn the value of my education.”

8)  I wrote a senior thesis on the African-American influx into Kansas following the Civil War – a group that was known as the Exodusters.

9)  I was a history major in college even though I can never remember names or dates, but I really love good stories and the best stories are often real.

10)  I have a habit of getting really excited about something for a while, but once I figure it out I get bored and never do it again.

11)  I would say the adjectives most often attributed to me by others are probably things like stubborn and/or cocky.

12)  I am typically optimistic, and I always try to put a positive spin on things, but at times it is impossible, and those times are very depressing.

13)  I try to laugh and joke and goof around as much as possible, because humor is one of my favorite things.

14)  My toes are double jointed (so I can pick things up quite easily with them) and I had 6 wisdom teeth instead of four, so by many standards I am an evolutionary regression.

15)  My parents moved a lot when I was growing up as my dad was promoted through different positions.   At one point in my life, I was in 6 different schools in 5 years.

16)  I have a downright fetish for ice-cream.   Jell doesn’t seem to understand the compulsive need to go get a chocolate milkshake even though it is below freezing outside.

How Do You Know If She Loves You?

Posted in Fun & Games, Real Life, SLove & Romance, Uncategorized with tags , , on December 19, 2008 by ♥JellyBean♥

If shes willing to go meet your parents for the first time knowing that she is trapped there no matter what because they live 324654545457 miles away and you drove… she loves you.

If she calls you at work during the day to ask, “What’s gnu?” in her cute way… she loves you.

If she finds your snoring “comforting”… she loves you.

If she puts up with an entire plethora of  bad Christmas tuneage the DAY before Thanksgiving on a long-distance road trip… she loves you.

If her parents love you… she loves you, probably.

If her parents hate you… she might love you, too.

If she loves you, if she really loves you, you’ll know it. If you can wake up to her staring at you and it’s not even mildly creepy, if you catch her smelling the shoulder of the jacket you lent her for the winter and not for B.O., if she makes you pancakes even though you hate them, if she calls you on her carpool home giggling madly, if she laughs at your jokes when they’re funny and makes fun of you when they’re not, if she shares her mother’s homemade fudge that only comes at Christmas time every year, if she tells you how she wishes she had higher self-esteem and it makes her sad: She loves you, of course she loves you.

And with a love like that, you know you should be glad.

I could be a better blogger but that takes effort…

Posted in Real Life, SecondLife® with tags , , , on October 25, 2008 by ♥JellyBean♥

… and effort is seriously lacking over here George. I did however start a post over on I Came, I Vent. Yah, I said “started” but I did go ahead and post it. It just seems incomplete because I didn’t go all full on vent-ifical. A girl needs her coffee and breakfast panini before she can dive into such a thing, ya know. In fact, as I was nahming down on my Global Cafe wholesome goodness – part of a complete yumgasmic breakfast, I realized how completely stupid and laughable the whole sitch was to blog about. Normally drama pops up and I either find entertainment value in it (Shup! don’t even act like you don’t) or I don’t waste any time deciding that I don’t care enough about it to have an opinion. I believe I will eventually go back to it only because the *one* side of the story told was so completely off base and ignorant. That’s enough reason for me to jump on a soapbox, I tell you what.

Anyways, *sneeze* Free State has gotten a lil dusty, eh? Well let me tidy up around here some and share with ya… ZOMBIE WALK 2008! Oh yes, incoming REAL LIFE ALERT! Stop reading here if you ever thought this was an SL only blog. I’d hate to feel responsible for ripping you out of your delusions.

Drum roll please….

If you have no idea what this is, want more info, or just wanna find out when/where one is close to you please visit the central webby – Zombie Walk. This was completely new to us. Hawks told me about 4 days prior that we were going. Who knew so many people would not only show up but also be so purely entertaining and theatrical? It was fun! A zombie walk is basically a flash mob of people dressed like zombies, meeting at an appointed place and sort of following a planned route.

The idea is to have enough zombies together that the group takes on a life of its own. There is no *real* leader but there may be an organizer or two. That way if anyone asks you who’s leading this weird group of zombies, the only appropriate answers are either “I don’t know” or “braaaaains…”

We met up at 8 p.m. Thursday Oct. 23rd at the South Park Gazebo here in downtown Lawrence. From there we headed north down Massachusetts street for plenty of interaction with the early evening human crowd.

How do you become a zombie? That’s easy. Wear some torn up clothes that maybe you’ve rubbed around in dirt, put some make-up on your face and break-out the fake blood! There really aren’t any rules when it comes to putting on your zombie face. Just don’t be afraid of the blood.

You can view my photo stream on Flickr of the pics that I took. Hawks said it best when he said that the pics are okay but without the sights and sounds you cannot fully appreciate it. Soooooo… I found video. I rock like that. Since I was to lazy to find a way to embed it you can watch it here.

Okay I am now spent. Haha! And I still have my Rev post to do at some point today!

Happy Birthday, Kimberlee!

Posted in Holidays, Real Life with tags , , on September 19, 2008 by hawksrock

Saturday,  September 20th a certain JellyBean Madison’s human is going to be celebrating a birthday.   Please join me in wishing, Kimberlee a very happy birthday!!   She has blessed all of our lives with her vitality, her sarcasm, her passion, her compulsive blogging, and most of all her totally infectious giggle which is enough to send anyone within a ten yard proximity into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.  She draws people to her like flies to ____ (wait I think honey actually has 5 letters.)   I am one very lucky guy, and I am thankful every day that she had the guts to come to Kansas, and in the face of much adversity, continues to shine brighter than ever.   Be sure to check out the Sandbar webcam around 11:30 (central time) to see her up on the bar, receiving her first hurricane shot from her favorite bar in the world.   I love you baby, and wish you the bestest birthday evah!!

Desperately Seeking Gillian Waldman

Posted in Real Life, SecondLife® with tags , , , on September 17, 2008 by ♥JellyBean♥


Gillian Waldman

SL REZ DATE: 9/27/2006

Gillian Waldman was last seen July 25th, 2008 sitting on these boxes at Deux Looks. It is possible she fell asleep and a truck mistakenly carried her off with the boxes.

It is also likely that some hairy footed hobbit carried her away to LOTRO where he is doing heinous things to her *shivers at the thought*

If you have seen or heard from this fabulous avatar and wonderful bubble of sunshine & love please contact HawksRock Gunawan and/or JellyBean Madison.
