Do they have a support group.....

For parents of class clowns? (tapping the mic....hey is this thing on...tap tap tap) Hello, my name is Cheeky and I am the parent of a class clown (crowd responds "welcome Cheeky") Once again, this week I had a call from the school, and a note sent home that I had to sign that will most like go into a file that will forever lable my child. (someone in the group gasps - "how dare they"). Now, I know this is wrong but I have to also admit that when I got the call, and was told what he was doing.....I laughed. But of course I can't tell man child that. I have to be a parent right? I can't let him get away with that. He has to learn how to operate with in the boundaries (and I have to admit with this stupid school even I don't know what the boundaries are....I really don't like this school.). When Mr. Cheeky read the note.....first thing he did was laugh. And usually we don't involve the teenage daughter in disciplinary actions with the man child but we had to share this one (because we have a twisted sense of humor at Chez Cheeky) and when we did....she laughed. Well, I guess if he is going to be a class clown he might as well be good at it. Right?

BUT since I have to be a parent here, I had to discipline him. The discipline was more for not listening to the sub and following directions (this has been an on going problem for the entire class - the teacher has lost control) than it was for his class clown behavior. We did discuss when it is appropriate to try and make you friends laugh and when making this decision if it is something the teachers would have a problem with (which is everything). So for the first really gorgeous weather weekend, the man child was in jail in his room with no forms of entertainment except his imagination (which means he is thinking up yet more ways to make people laugh).

So you are asking yourself....what did he do? Well, I guess we as parents, we should take a little of the blame for thinking "potty humor" (not potty mouths) is funny. You know the kind of humor like Dumb and Dumber where Lloyd gives Harry (Jeff Daniels) a laxative and he has to run to the john and its just funny. Or the scene in White Chicks where Marcus (Marlon Wayans)is posing as a white girl and eats quiche with cheese and he is lactose intollerant and runs to the pot? Well, here at Chez Cheeky, we think that kinda stuff if funny (yes we are immature - so just shut it mmmkay?). On a regular basis someone will walk out of the bathroom saying something like "oh you don't wanna go in there - I just dropped a big ol stink pickle" but saying it with a since of pride not warning. So, my man child thinks this kinda stuff is funny too. So what does he do? He is in art class, and gets the idea that the class just isn't rowdy enough, or loud enough, or laughing enough so he goes over to the waste basket and says "hey everybody - wanna watch take a poop?" (or something to that effect - I wasn't there) and proceeds to squat (fully dressed of course - he was simulating) and make a face like he is dropping a stink pickle. Because I know my son, I also have to assume that sound effects were also involved. (hanging my head acting like I am ashamed but in actuality I am giggling again).

OK - topic change.....

Last night the teenage daughter called me a dork. Not once but a couple of times. She was even on the phone with her BFF and said it again "my mom is a dork". Why did she say this??? Because his Royal Purpleness was on TV last night - yes it was the movie Purple Rain. So of course, I had to watch it. I had to point it out to the teenage daughter and that is when she called me a dork for the first time. THEN....while she was on the phone....I called her upstairs cause Morris Day was singing ....so I had to sing to, and dance like Morris. Teenage daughter was laughing at me and told her BFF to change the channel and see what I was doing....that is when I got called a dork again. She told BFF that the next time she comes over - which will be any minute now (haha cause she is always over) that I would have to dance for her.

Cheeky - who is still singin and dancin a little Morris Day and the Time....(sing with me now....and you know you wanna dance too....)

America, have you heard? I got a brand new dance and it's called "The bird"
You don't need no finesse or no personality, you just need two arms and an attitude.
And everybody sing with me, come on now!
Whawk! Hallelujah! Whoa!

Brothers, don't be cool. Women like it sometimes when you act a fool.
Sisters, don't be shy. Let your body get loose, you ain't to fat to fly.
Come on now! Whawk! Hallelujah! Whoa!

Yes! Hold on now, this dance ain't for everybody. Just the sexy people.
White folks, you're much too tight.
You gotta shake your head like the black folks. You might get some tonight.
Look out!

Whawk! Hallelujah! Whoa!

Somebody save me......

Have you ever had a dream, well I guess you could technically classify as a nightmare, where the whole time you are having it you KNOW its a dream, and its a ridiculous one at that but you still wake up scared?

I can't believe I am admitting this. Last night, ok actually this morning, I was having a dream. I knew it was a dream because. I mean really, having a dream starring yours truly and Godzilla, you have to know its a dream. The dream seemed to last for a while. I am at a little diner joint and Godzilla attacks. I am trying to pay the chick behind the register that looks like Flo from Alice and all the while she won't take my money cause she is scared of Godzilla coming our way. Fast forward, I am walking down the city streets, here he comes again! So I have to hide. Fast forward, its Cheeky vs. Godzilla...one on one. I am gonna finally take care of him once and for all because little did he know Cheeky has super powers and can take him down. And I do. After delivering several of my super human strength blows to his head I whip out the good stuff and shrink him right down to size. Like kitty cat size. And then once realizing that I AM the WOMAN and you don't mess with Cheeky, he becomes like a little snuggly pet. Like all sweet and stuff. But I am smarter than that. I know what he is up to. He is gonna be all loving until one day he is big enough to take his revenge. So, what do I do.....I light his cute snuggly Godzilla bootay on fire and toss him in to the highway where he explodes and takes out the bridge. That is when I wake up.

I know you are asking yourself, what the crap are you smokin...eating.....drinkin before bed? The only answer to that would be "I dunno"

Cheeky who is singing and dancing like the gopher from Caddyshack.....

I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can't you just let it be?

I'm alright
Don't nobody worry 'bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don't you just let me be

Do what you like,
Doing it nat'rally
But if it's too easy
They're gonna disagree

It's your life
And isn't it a mystery
If it's nobody's bus'ness
It's everybody's game

Gotta catch you later
No, no, cannonball it right away

Some Cinderella kid

Get it up and get you a job
(Dip dip dip dip dip dip dip dip)

I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can't you just let it be?

I'm alright
Don't nobody worry 'bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don't you just let me be

Who do you want?
Who you be today?
And who is it really
Makin' up your mind?

You wanna listen to the man?
Pay attention to the magistrate
And while I got you in the mood
Listen to your

Own heart beatin'
Own heart beatin'
Own heart beatin'
Own heart beatin'

Don't it get you movin'

mmmmm-man

It make me feel good

(Wow, Cinderella kid)

Then give it up and give it the job

(dip dip dip dip dip dip dip dip)
(Boom, boom, boom, boom)

I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can't you just let it be?

I'm alright
Don't nobody worry 'bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don't you just let me be

I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight?
Can't you just let it be?

I'm alright

It has returned

Heroes - yes, Heroes has returned. I was glued to the tube last night watching it. Have I ever told ya'll how much I *heart* this show? Well I do.

So that brings me to this. Do you know any "real life" heroes? You know, the kind of people that go out of their way in an emergency situation? I do. Actually I know a few but the most recent is my buddy Kelly (see I told ya I would give ya a shout out) who just this weekend rescued a man after flipping his car (did I get that right Kelly?). The way I heard it, the man had been drinking and had Kelly not been there to pull him out, he could have died waiting for paramedics. So (raise your glasses - whatever you are drinking, morning coffee, orange juice, water, chocolate milk, whatever you have) here is a toast to you my friend!

On a personal note, I am starting to feel better. I am not 100% just yet but I am not dragging and hacking and blowing my schnoz every two seconds either. I am on the way to recovery. Thanks for all the well wishes.

Ever see those cartoons

Where the characters head explodes? Yeah, that is what my head has been feeling like, like its gonna freaking explode. Before I continue my whining, let me first and foremost say that ya'll at Blogger Blowout totally rock and I am proud to call you my bitches!

OK so lets recap. Tuesday of last week it started with the tiniest of a tickle in my throat. Wednesday still a tickle, voice sounds like crap, getting a little congested in my chest but nothing serious. Basically I sounded like crap but I didn't feel as bad as I sounded. Thursday, voice sounding really really bad now, the tiny scratchiness has escalated and the chest congestion is getting worse. As a matter of fact it is developing into a cough but still.....I am hanging in there.

My first mistake was getting on the plane feeling a little "stuffy". Pressurized head and pressurized planes don't mix. The first half was just not fun. Sitting back in steerage with some rich arrogant idiot that I could still hear even though I had my head phones on. I tried to work. Actually, I did do quite a bit of work until my battery was almost dead. On my layover, I decided I couldn't sit in the back again so I went to the gate agent with my pitiful self and was gonna try and get an upgrade. She didn't know how to use my points, would only take plastic (which I claimed that I didn't have - hehe) and just looked so pitiful - the agent just gave it to me. Ahhh I love this airline.

Get to Houston, Shell was there pretty quickly (although the bags took a little while to be delivered) and off we go! I was still feeling OK, still sounding like crap but also starting to get tired. So, we didn't stay up too long on Thursday night.

Friday, after doing some work work in the morning (gotta pay the bills), we headed out into town and Shell showed me the sites. Lunch was just incredible. We ate at Treebeards and I had the red beans and rice - OMG ya'll - YUMMY! Here just take a look at it.....doesn't that look like heaven in a bowl? (TKW this is for you girl - I hear this one of your favorite places)





In the evening, we headed out to a birthday party for one of Shell's friends. It was great getting to meet everyone and ummm there was a little bit of eye candy there too so that just added to the festivities. Then on to meet the girls! OMG this is greatest bunch of girls you could ever meet. So fun! I was starting to feel like crap but was trying to hold it off. I only had 2 drinks....ONLY 2! because I felt so much like crap. We left around midnight or so and headed back to Shell's place. I crashed....hard.

Saturday I wake up and it has finally all caught up to me. Not only do I sound really really bad with the voice and the hacking cough and the sneezing....but I also now feel just as bad as I sound. This is not good. I can't feel this bad for the big night. Shell and I went shopping at Sam Moon but that was about all I could handle. We came back to her place and I fell asleep on the couch (yeah I am a party animal). Slept a couple of hours which was good because there is no way that I would have made it through the night without it. Got up, took a really hot shower (thinking the steam would help my head - it did a little). Got all dressed and headed out to the party. We were late but that is ok I made it right? Shell ditched me to go hang out with her sister and cousin (kidding kidding - she hadn't seen her cousin in a really long time so it was cool). I went with the rest of the girls to the place called Drink that is a bunch of bars all in one. The first one, an 80's retro place - you know I was loving that one. The next one, a dance place, the third - KARAOKE!!! I have a great recording of Tammy singing. I wanted to sing soooooooo much but I couldn't my poor voice sounded like hell but Amiee and I did sit back in the corner and sing everything - and I think we did it much better than many even with my crackly voice - but then again we are biased. I managed to make it until just past midnight. After that I was done, I was toast. Now usually I can hang much better than that but I was just so freaking worn out, couldn't breath, was hacking......miserable. Got back to Shell's and debated for about an hour on whether or not we should sleep. My flight left out at 5:40AM which means being at the airport and hour before, which means leaving her place at 3 something. Sleep? or no sleep? We opted for sleep. Didn't get much before it was time to go.

Now here is my word of advice for everyone. If you take nothing else from this morning's rant please take my word for this. DO NOT fly when your head is already so pressurized it could explode on its own. Taking off was OK but each landing was just painful. My left ear did not want to equalize pressure and when it released a little it hurt - BAD! I am sitting here this morning typing this out and my left ear is STILL NOT 100% equalized.

There will be more stories and pictures and things to tell but right now - I am STILL SICK!!!! Enough is enough already.....seriously.....

Guess what - Houston

Cheeky has arrived. Shell is such the little hostess. We were cracking ourselves up and getting the air mattress set up last night. Once it was made and ready - I crashed.....seriously crashed.

I did work work on the plane on the way out (ok I watched family guy too) and then I had to finish up a few things for work work after I got here last night soooo yeah by the time all was said and done this girl crashed.

So this AM while I was prepping for my morning meeting, my lovely hostess Shell made us blueberry pancakes - Ummm I could used to this....hehe

OK so the meeting is over and I have a few more things for work work and then I am off to see Houston!

Leavin on jet plane

And headed to Blogger Blowout in Houston ya'll! So as many of you will be driving home during rush hour, yours truly will be flyin high above clouds to hang with the cool peeps! I won't get there until late (stupid layovers) so I won't be much use for anyone and considering Shell is gonna be all hyped up on meds she is not gonna be any use for anyone either ...hehe yeah that is gonna be a sight and yeah I will take pics. (sorry Shell)

BUT before all the festivities begin, I have to get through the day. I haven't even packed yet. I know I am a slacker. Plus I have work to do - you know, the kind that pays the bills or in my case Uncle Sam? I don't have any calls scheduled which is fine because I have lots of other crap to keep me busy busy busy. I am even considering doing a little work on the plane since I am going to be traveling for so long. But then again, I might sweet talk the agents and get put back in first class and umm have a beverage or three. Depends on how much I get done today. So sorry if I don't get around to commenting today. I promise I will get to ya.....PROMISE.

I am sure there will be lots of stories to tell and lots of blogging to be done.....

It's Crunch Time!!

This is an exceptionally busy week at work. I have sooooooo much to do and sooooo little time in between getting myself all presentable for blogger blowout (I have my priorities). I mean I can't let my bitches see me for the first time with roots that need to be colored and nails that are in desperate need of a mani/pedi. I mean seriously as anal as I am about such things there ain't no way I am showing up without those things taken care of. These feet will not touch flip flops unless the toes are presentable. So....I have scheduled calls at 7 freakin AM this morning so that I can get stuff done before my hair appt. and not miss a beat. Yes, go ahead, you can say it - I am the Bomb diggity!!! You worship me....you bow down in the presence of my greatness. Awww come on you know you want to.

Actually by the time I hit Shell's joint Thursday night, I am gonna be in serious need of an ICE COLD BEER!!!!! OK truth be told SEVERAL Ice Cold Brewskis. I am so excited about going to my first blogger blowout I can barely contain myself I mean really.....If I had the time I would actually go shop for some party clothes but I don't sooooo ya'll are gonna have to take me as I am (but would I really have it any other way? naaah)....you know in the famous words of ABBA - love me or leave me make your choice but believe me.... I love you I do I do I do I do I do....LOL

For some strange reason I am getting the feeling that I am going to be asked to sing a little karaoke to my bitches but I have no idea on what to sing.......come on ya'll help a Cheeky out. Help me pick a kick ass tune or several so that I can get a second job entertaining you folks on the side. You know you would pay big bucks for me to get all hookiefied and sang for you at all the major blogging events. I don't want to disappoint my blogger buds!

So, in the mean time, I am gonna rest this voice as much as I can between interviews so that it won't sound all horrible and coarse but then again.....I did have an employer that used to LOVE to talk to me when my voice was like this....he would call and talk to me about nothing just to hear me talk to him.....yeah he was a freak but I kinda liked it...hehe. So as of right now I sound like Bonnie Tyler....who knows what I will sound like when I get there......

I am NOT gonna let it happen

No siree Bob it ain't gonna happen. It's NOT going to be one of "those" days. Even though teenage daughter overslept and missed the bus and I had to take her. Even though I am already feeling overwhelmed with the amount of crap I have to do today. Even though I slept with the windows open and the ceiling fan moving and now I have the tiniest of a scratchy throat and a chesty cough (and the deeper voice to go with). Even though since I had to take teenage daughter to school I stopped and got a foo foo coffee from Caribou to sooth my throat (yeah that was why) and I burned my tongue cause it was hot (duh!). Even though all these things have happened to me and I have only been up an hour - I am NOT gonna allow it to be one of "those" days.....nope just not gonna happen.

Cheeky who is singing (yes with a scratchy throat).....and yeah it needs to be in CAPS today....

What a Scrap of a Weekend!

OK so we headed out mid morning on Friday headed out to Milwaukee. The drive was long but I had a good time. I was the designated driver (hehe) so Shannon slept almost the whole trip while Suzoo and I did our best to bring back the 80's. We sang the whole way (yeah, like you expected anything different from me). We get there and I am a little tired but not too tired to go straight to the convention. OH wait - let me back up a little.....we were supposed to be staying with Shannon's parents but the night before, she calls me and tells me that her Dad had gotten us rooms at the same hotel the convention was in! How cool was that? So, back to the story. We get in the room and head straight down to the convention. Ya'll I am a serious sucker for this stuff and I was like a kid in a candy shop! I did buy some really cute lounging pants that have a scrappin theme and they are all pink and girly. I tried to keep myself in line and not spend too much since I just had to write that nasty check to the IRS.

Suzoo and I were scheduled for the crop that night so we headed to the restaurant in the hotel for dinner. OMG the food phenomenal - the service - SUCKED! Seriously, I just had soup and salad and it took over an hour. Suzoo and I did meet a fellow scrapper - Sharon. She was having dinner alone so we invited her to join us. Then off to the crop. Ya'll these ladies were hard core - I loved it! We cropped all night. So after a full night I headed back to the room and basically passed out.

Saturday. Up and at it early. Suzoo and I volunteered to be workshop assistants. Hers was first thing in the morning, mine wasn't until the afternoon. So, Suzoo was up and out before I even got out of bed. I got up, got ready and headed back down to the convention for a while. Came back and Shannon was just waking up. We decided to head out to Perkins for breakfast. Food - YUMMY! Service - SUCKED AGAIN! What is up with that?

I did my two workshops and had a great time doing it. Those ladies thought I knew all this stuff and I was learning it for the first time myself - but I guess I faked it pretty darn well...I am talented like that hehe.

The convention ended at 5. Shannon's parents came back by for a visit and we decided to go out for dinner. We went to a little local place called Dino's. OMG ya'll that was some seriously FABULOUS pizza! I mean just wonderful! And the service - was finally good! I was starting to think that I was cursed or something. After dinner we headed back to the room. Suzoo decided to hit the pool. Shannon, her parents and I stayed in the room and played cards (yeah aren't we the wild bunch). We played for a really long time and told stories and laughed - it was really nice.

Sunday - the plan was to get up and hit the road early. Yeah, that didn't happen. We didn't even wake up until 9! But we were quick and hit the road by 10. Not too bad for 2 scrappers (Suzoo and I) with all the crap we brought plus all the crap we bought and all the crap we were given from the crop and from being assistants. I basically had to repack everything so it would fit just right in my bag.

The drive back was fun! Shannon slept (seriously, I don't think John lets her sleep during the week or something - that girl slept all weekend!). Suzoo and I reprised our roles as the ladies of the 80's. There were cops everywhere, I mean all over I-94 we just saw cop after cop after cop. BUT that was not all.....roadkill. Every couple of miles there was some sort of roadkill. I am not even kidding - it got to the point we were just laughing every time we saw it. I got home just shortly after 4 in the afternoon and I was toast. Just worn out.

Now, I have to rest up because next weekend this girl is headed to Houston for BLOGGER BLOWOUT! Oh yeah baby! I am headed out late Thursday and staying with Shell - so girl you better stop being sick - I mean it woman!

Is a Scrappin Weekend!

I am headed to Milwaukee this morning for a scrapbook convention! I have so much crap I don't even know what all to take with me - so I guess I have to take it ALL! I have all my pictures printed and ready for the crop tonight. I am not excited about my 6 hour drive but I told Suzanna and Shannon that I am driving and the driver controls the radio - hehehe!

It finally stopped snowing and most of it has melted - thank goodness! Maybe now we can have spring??? Please??? I mean come on what does a Cheeky have to do to get some spring weather?

Back from vacation

and what is going on???? S.N.O.W. Can you believe that crap? Its April!!!! and its gonna snow!!!!! I thought I was done with that evil white stuff for the year. Thought I had made it through and wouldn't have to see it again....but Nooooooo.

Vacation was GREAT! I am ready to go back down there. Everything was so green and beautiful. Teenage Daughter and Mr. Cheeky got sick from the pollen - I guess they just can't hang with me and the man child LOL. I didn't get burned - yeah! and I still look so bright I could blind someone (but that is ok - I guess, less wrinkles right?). Man Child found a little girl friend in Myrtle Beach and she was too cute chasing him around the pool.

I had a wonderful surprise from my girl Patti waiting for me when I got home - GIRL YOU ARE THE BEST!

I will have pics ready for ya tomorrow - now I have to get caught up on work - lovely....

Ahhhhh the beach

I love the beach. I really do. I love the south. I really do. It started to rain just a little bit on the way up yesterday but that was fine - it could be worse, I could be stuck in the snow back at the house (I can't believe it snowed again after it all melted). By the time we got here it had stopped. No sooner than we got checked in, the man child was dying to hit the pool. The indoor pool had entirely too much chlorine so we opted to go outside. The water was really really nice.

For dinner we went to my favorite place here....Crabby Mike's! Ya'll I ate entirely too much but I don't get fresh crab everyday so I had to get my fill. After dark, took a nice little walk on the beach.

We are already up this morning and we are headed to Broadway at the Beach for a little shopping this morning. Right now its partly sunny but will be all sun by this afternoon so that is when I will become a lobster.

The bags have arrived

FINALLY!!! It wasn't until late last night. But on the good side we were allowed to spend $125 on incidentals so that was cool. Now I just have to get reimbursed. So, yesterday was GREAT fun. Teenage Daughter and L and TD's friend from SC A hung out together and had a great time. I forgot how much I MISS A! We have lots of pictures to share. I will upload flikr at some point this week to share. I got to hang out with my friend as well - which was exactly what I needed.

Today we are checking out of the hotel, going to see our former neighbors son play baseball (he plays for the highschool team), then head on up to Myrtle Beach. I can't believe how fast time is flying.......

SPRING BREAK

OK I know I know.....I promised to be better about blogging last week. AND I have every intention of doing so but my funk took a serious dive, so much so that I took a little trip to visit the doc. She increased my happy pill intake and gave me something to help me sleep. But all of that funk is gone now.....pills kicked in you ask? Nope, that funk went away because as I sit here typing this, I am in Charleston!!!! Woooohooo!! Spring break has begun and I am happy as a clam. Today is Charleston and tomorrow morning we are headed to Myrtle Beach! Teenage Daughter brought along her friend L and so TD she wants to show her around the town. We are getting ready to head out to the market.

The traveling was OK. L was scared to fly so we had some fun with that. The kids bags didn't make the connection so now we are waiting for them to be delivered sometime today. I am pleased that I had my clothes but my make up was in man child's bag so ummmm I am going out au naturale today....yikes!

So, Cheeky is back ya'll - thanks for the emails and well wishes during my funk....

Cheeky - who is singing.....
