I keep thinking how much I could benefit from winning about $7k-10k next time I go to the casino. Of course the odds of it happening are slim to none, but I'm still hoping.  If that were to actually happen,  I would be able to catch up on my house. Plus, I would be having fun gambling. :)

I am proud that I work hard for my money but I would be OK if I won it instead. And its not for the purpose of financial gain. Its for survival. Shelter is important.

Wish me luck.

He left us.

Last night before I went to work,  "little brother" wrote a note that he was leaving and slipped out of the house. It was weird that he left while B and I were upstairs, but to each his own. 

B saw him at Walmart this morning. He said he couldn't find a ride. B told him where to stand to find someone to take him home. Poor guy. It was hot today and he said he had been standing there all night.

I hope he makes it home safely!

Gambling with the "gays"

I went to the casino a few times this weekend. I made a bunch of money but ended up spending it all. It was a great weekend anyhow.

Cynthia went with us and she introduced me to one of her friends who just happened to be there. She told him my name and he said, "I'm Dick." So I responded, "Are you trying to run me off?" I love lesbian humor.  The man didn't understand why I said it so Cynthia had to explain, which made me laugh even.harder.

On our way back from the casino, we (meaning Cynthia) picked up a hitchhiker in Joplin.  Luckily, he didn't kill us and he ended up being pretty cool. So we decided to keep our little hitchhiker.  He was on his way to Chicago and we told him that we adopted him and he needs to stay in Springfield. He is going to stay a few weeks and see if he likes it. He is a nice kid and I hope he either likes it here or makes it safely back to Chicago.  I've been calling him my little brother.

Old friends and a new roommate

It sure is great seeing old friends.  Not that all of my friends are old... Of course, I'm meaning it's great to see those who have been my friends for many years. :)  We had a great time chatting tonight.  I wish I had made it to my high school reunion today.  Maybe I'll make it to the next one.  I hope I don't end up being that person who drops off the face of the planet and never talks to anyone from my hometown.   But ahhhh to be a hermit!  HAHA I'm not even close to being a hermit.  I'm always out and about nowadays.  I love it and I hope it continues...

In other news, it's only a little over a week away before my new roommate moves in.

Scuba Steven, M.D.

Steve plays dumb most of the time, but this dog is incredibly smart.  He knows what I mean when I talk to him.  I've noticed him staring at me and when I turn to look at him, he raises his head and lifts his ears, observing my every move.  Trevor does this too, but Steve does it most often.  He is a pretty good judge of character in people.   He has definitely protected me in many situations.  Steve protected me from my creepy ass neighbor.  The man walked up to us and Steve dropped to the ground and started growling.  When we walk to the park and strangers approach us, Steve walks closer to me.  It's as if he's saying 'stay behind me, Mom.  I'll check them out and make sure they're safe for ya.'  I love this dog and I'm going to do everything in my power to ensure his happiness.  He has protected me for almost 2 years and I'm going to protect him for the rest of his life. :)

Movies, anyone?

Since most everything in my life is uncertain right now, I've decided to blog about something I know.  I know movies.  I love movies and I love going out to see movies.  Anyone know how long it's been since I've been to a movie?  Close to a year.  It sucks.  I used to go with my friends all the time.  But now, I'm stuck with renting movies when they are cheap on Sundays or just watching tv online.  

My movie obsession is horror or suspense films.  My goal for the past couple of years is to find a 'scary' movie that actually scares me.  I used to be so jumpy and I hated watching them but now, I laugh at them.  I like the stories but the fear factor is kinda lame to me now.  I'm looking down at my desk and I see a couple scary movies that I rented this past weekend.  They don't scare me but I love the story.  

So, I need someone to tell me what movie will scare me if I watch it.  Leave me a comment and give it your best shot.
