YodaMamma MS & More

Location: Crescent City, Fl, United States

I am 60, have MS, am an avid cook, love making candles (soy) and watching the endless parade of Nature outside my home. I treat the MS with supplements and LDN, I do not use any of the C.R.A.B. MS meds, we don't get along well. I was married for 13 years, we were together for 15. We are now divorced. Sad, that. I do still love him, but ONLY as the father of my baby. Better to keep it civil, hurts the child(ren) less that way, but is oh-so-hard to do sometimes.

Susan Boyle

I saw her interviewed the other morning, and I really have a bit of a bone to pick with the interviewers...they're making fun of her because she isn't a raving beauty, and because of her little dance and the never-been-kissed thing. Now, these ladies are all beautiful, successful and married. They absolutely know NOTHING about being plain, or being picked on and bullied. In their insensitive way they are also bullying her. Not that they mean to, they just have no basis for comparison to get into HER head. She is, romantically, as unplucked as her eyebrows, that in today's society that is such a rarity (the romance, not the 'brows, which BTW are coming back into fashion...she just didn't know she is ahead of the pack).
What *I* want to hear in the way of questions has nothing to do with whether she has been romantically involved or not (none of my business) but about her singing! I want to know if she's ever taken singing lessons, if she practices, what her favorite genre of music is...I know she's been singing since she was 12, is she totally self-taught? Her vocal control is awesome, her vibrato extraordinary, she uses it lightly, some singers SO overuse it, she uses it to amplify but not excessively. I know she took acting lessons, had she ever sung onstage before? How did she do it? She went out there and took total control, one would have thought she was a pro. I don't give a fig about her romance or her dance, it's cute but she was also very nervous...and who can blame her? But the second she launched into song and blew the crowd away, she took total control...a beautiful thing to see...and a blow to all the "perfect people" out there who relish judging people like us, the not-so-pretty, not-so-young, not-so-svelte and not-so-perfect women (and men!). YES, we not-so-perfect people CAN and WILL surprise you, we ARE worthy, and are tired of being downtrodden!! HUZZAH for the Susan Boyle's of the world!!!

Well, today is the big D

yes, today the divorce is final. And of course, today in History was the day the titanic hit the iceberg...Oh, and I have to be in court at 10:a.m., so what is on TV at 10:a.m? Well, Divorce Court, of course!! SO,I'm not going to dwell on that, but instead comment some more on the Billy Mays Craze...
Seems he is going to *gasp*thud* have his own TV show. Yea, like we don't get yelled at enough by the man, now this! At LEAST it isn't co-starring the Shamwow man, who I think cut his fame short when he slap-chopped the hooker, who seems to have bitten more then his lip, but nipped his career in the bud. No loss. All he needs to do is invest the loot he got and retire to an island...far, far away....
Anyway back to Billy. New show is called The Pitchmen. My version has a *B* instead of a *P*, because he makes the ads we all bitch about...HE apparently does have a co-"star", the guy with the strange accent. Not a traditional British accent, nor is it Auzzie or NZ, so I call it British-ish. What it basically is, is annoying. Have you figured out yet two things...one, I am not fond of pitch-men, and, two, I watch WAAAY too much TV.
What ever happened to Ron Pompeii? At least he had imagination and his stuff was always a bit quirky...I mean, scrambling the egg in the shell? Like my fork doesn't do it well enough? And he sold gazillions of the things! True genius...abhorrent, but genius...
NOW, I want you to go to this link and prepare to be amazed. Absolutely amazed. No joke.

Out of the mouths....

Robbin is here, has been since Sunday. The visit is going wonderfully! We are both SO happy, he comes up and hugs and kisses me all of the time, he is SO happy he glows...and he has grown! He is now taller then I am and wearing size 7 shoes!!! And eats like it, too...
During his last week there he went to a school play with Cathy. It was Jesus Christ Superstar, which has always been one of my very favorite movies...so since he enjoyed it so much, I got the DVD off eBay. Well we're watching it right now...and within the first few minuted he said "It's like a Cristian version of High School Musical" I am still chortling about that....

April 1

April Fool's Day. I have quite the history with this date, on April 1 1997 I found out that I was (at 42) pregnant. And on April 1 2004 I got the diagnosis of MS. So it is a very mixed-feeling day. And it is also now 13 days before the divorce is final.
Yesterday Robbin called, I was hurting, big-time, and was crying. The pain was both physical and emotional. I am SO sorry he heard me crying. When I cry, I cannot talk, just can't, words will NOT come out. SO I was not able to tell him why, when he asked. So he said "It's ok Mommy, I will be seeing you face-to-face real soon" What a sweet boy. I just love him SO much. Just a few more days.
Meantime, here's a thought...the shamwow guy. he has another commercial, equally obnoxious, where he sells something called the slapchop. In it he says, and I quote, "you're gonna love my nuts". Well apparently he was sharing his nuts, and got arrested, for slapping a prostitute. So he really does love his product...the slap part anyway...Now, on the subject of annoying TV ad guys, think Billy Mays. Now think Sex. Can you even imagine Billy Mays selling sex toys? Or ANY sex product? Viagra? Condoms? Instead of yelling about the aweswome auger he would be yelling about the daring dildo. And can you imagine him having sex? A comedian could hit pure gold with a routine about that! I wonder if he can evel *talk* without shouting?
I twitter now. Did you know Twitter is one of the Seven Signs of the Apocalyps? And HULU is another? We're doomed....
