I decided to be good to myself today, and bought myself a new toy:
Another Panasonic Lumix digital camera, only this one has 10x optical zoom, instead of the 3x optical zoom on my current Lumix. I saw pictures from various Lep shows back east, and several people have this camera, and gave it rave reviews, so I thought WHY THE HELL NOT??!! So Merry Early Christmas to ME!
Now if only I had a concert to go to so I could test this puppy out........

I Guess Someone Didn't Like The Shoes!
I have seen this pair of tennis shoes just dangling from a power line on my way home every night since the summer, across the street from Bulldog Stadium....and they are STILL there. Finally was able to get a semi-decent shot of them:
How in the hell did they throw those up onto that line??!!
Oh...look what else I found:

I've never seen someone so destructive, and with such a violent temper as I have in my mother lately. She's become physically abusive with hitting me and dad, so much so that I have a bruise on my forearm from her STRONG grasp, and one on my boob from her shoving her finger into my chest.
She saw her doctor on Tuesday, after I had faxed a list of her actions to him on Monday, and he wants to wean her off of Lexapro, and he gave her Xanax for a tranquilizer....shit, it seems to be making her worse! She's having more delusions of people stealing from her, and she's hit me more than she ever has this past week. NO ONE can reason or talk with her....if what we say doesn't fall along the line of her delusional thoughts, we are wrong, we are bastards, assholes, bitches, etc. She screams at us at the top of her lungs, then blames US for 'letting the whole neighborhood' know.
But she won't admit that there is something wrong. She believes that she was brought her by my brother last year...and she believes that she's left about 4 times since. All of this really started after she started seeing her cardiologist last year. After that, she started having these delusions of living somewhere else, and coming back. She was on a kick of believing that dad was cutting up her clothes for awhile. A couple of weeks ago, I came home every night to hear her bitch at me about 'moving her clothes before I go to work.' She thinks that I have some of her clothes that she 'brought here.' She thinks dad goes to the store every morning and has a girlfriend there. He only goes to the store once a week on Saturday!
I am so tired of being belittled, and verbally abused. I would LOVE to move out, but I have Devil Dog to consider....he wouldn't stay by himself in an apartment all day, and I'm NOT leaving him here. I keep hoping that my mom as I knew her will come back for good. Instead, this Imposter is invading her body.....and I can't stand the Imposter. My mother has gone from being a loving, supportive, gentle soul to one of the most selfish, self-centered, MEANEST people I've ever come across. She even said today during her latest rage that she was stupid when she had me. I *KNOW* that's not true....but DAMN! To hear the words....my heart is broken into a million pieces.
I'll be SO F*CKING GLAD to get back to work tomorrow. And Christmas vacation will be cancelled tomorrow....there's no way I'm staying around this hellhole for a week to be verbally abused.

Happy Thanksgiving My Ass!
This has been one F*CKED UP Thanksgiving, and we haven't even had dinner yet. Mom went ballistic over a f*cking ROASTING PAN.
I guess I should come clean with those who may have been wondering what's been going on with me over the past year and a half. I suspect strongly that my mother has some form of dementia, along with heart failure. I won't get into it right now, because I'll be accused of 'sitting on my dead ass' for sitting here too long today, but the last year and a half of my life has been a living HELL. I miss my mother as I knew her so much. I can't stand this Imposter that has taken over her body. Her anger level has accelerated to a rage that I've never seen before.
But that doesn't give her the right to be verbally abusive....like she has been. In the past month I've been called a worthless bitch, a brat, stupid, an idiot who knows NOTHING, a liar, a thief, etc. Dad is 'a worthless dirty bastard' who she thinks is stealing everything from her.
So....this is NOT a Happy Thanksgiving around my house. I hope everyone else is having a better one.

........How people actually get into management positions, yet they can't figure out a simple Department Summary report!!! I had to change the method of delivery of Department Reports that I send to all of the pharmacies each week. Instead of sending a hard copy weekly, I now have to save a copy to a Word document, then attach in email for distribution to all pharmacy managers in our local pharmacys in the clinics.
I had to practically help 2 managers through the fence by hand to explain that they had to SCROLL DOWN TO THEIR DEPARTMENT PAGE to see their department report.
Another manager emailed me this morning, asking for the reports for her pharmacy for 11/4 and 11/5 - that the report only included the main medical office pharmacy report. Mind you, this particular pharmacy where this manager is located ISN'T OPEN ON WEEKENDS! 11/4-11/5 was a SATURDAY and SUNDAY! So I had to bite my tongue and reply back nicely that her pharmacy won't be on those reports, because it was a weekend. When what I really wanted to say was, "LOOK AT THE CALENDAR!"
How do these people hold their jobs???

Experiments With PSP
I've had Paint Shop Pro for quite awhile now, and I've never really played around with it much, other than to crop/sharpen photos. I used the Sepia feature on PSP10 to give these two photos a different look...whatcha think?
