A Cold Case Worth Watching

 Hi Friends, hope you all had a good Friday, I enjoyed my day off today from work, I got together with my Uncle Mark and we went to dinner at the Elephant Bar, it was nice seeing him again, I wanted to let you all know that Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. on CBS is a great episode of Cold Case , anyone who has never seen Cold Case before is truly missing out,  Awesome music from different decades, great cast, compelling cases, Cool special effects, Ask Lisa Jo , lol - She loves Cold Case :) Anyone who has ever felt different in life will truly relate to the  teen girl on this episode on Sunday night, she dresses like a boy and gets alot of grief for that , but one thing that stood out when I saw this episode was what a loyal friend she was to her one guy friend and how brave she was, I have A.D.D. so I grew up feeling like I was different  and like an outsider and I always wished I could be the kid who everything came easy for and who never struggled in school, so if any of you are home Sunday night , please check this show out , Anyhow hope you all have a great upcoming weekend, Angie and Amy, mail will be coming for you both soon, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Punk - Ass Kids Invasion at World Market

Hi friends, hope you all had a good day, some excitement in my store today, one of our vendors was in my store in the wine dept and she had left her bag on the floor, so anyhow a group of teens, two girls and three boys thought it would be funny to steal her bag  and they took it outside to the parking lot with her car alarm keychain and were trying to find her car so they could steal it and go for a joyride. Dave called the police and all the kids were caught, they all did'nt look so smug then when they were arrested, who raises these kids ?????? They think nothing of stealing someone's purse and then going for a joyride in a stolen car, I am a little sad today , one of my friends ( Debbi) in real life not online has'nt been much of a friend to me lately, I always want to do stuff and hang with her, but she always makes up excuses, I am thinking I may just have to cut her loose, my online friends are always there for me no matter what.I went through a hard time when my dad was ill and near death, Debbi was'nt really there for me and it made me angry and sad at the same time.I have always been there for her when she was going through a hard time, one sided friendships do'nt usually last and I am the one in this friendship who makes an effort, she never returns my calls either or she always says "I'll call you" and never does so yeah think it's time to say "Goodbye" and just move on.Anyhow enough of that rant, hope you all have a great Thursday, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Awwwwwwwww Hell No

  Hi friends, hope you are all having a good Friday.I went to see that new Chronicles of Narnia movie too, what a waste of money, could have a good nap or a V8, lol. Lisa Jo sent me a CSI article saying they found a replacement for Jorja Fox on CSI, Some chick that was on The L Word, uh sorry, but there is nobody that can replace Jorja, she is irreplaceable, I do'nt think when CSI comes back next Season I will bother watching inless I hear about Jorja guest -starring in an episode.Speaking of CSI that episode last night shocked the hell out of me, I wo'nt say more then that because some of you have'nt seen it yet, but wow.Hope you all have a good upcoming weekend, it's still hot here , but not as bad as yesterday, Angie there is snail - mail coming for you, I hope you are feeling a little better, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Today was so tiring

 Hi friends, I am so emotionally drained from this day, the service was nice today but damn the temperatures were soaring today, it could have been at least a 100 degrees today in S.F. but I think I heard the temp was 97 in S.F. but a 100 was the temperature in San Mateo today, Uncle Max behaved himself today at dad's service, I was proud of him, however my brother Anthony who I rarely see was a complete A- hole to me, here is what he said to me when I was sitting in the church dying from the heat holding a little battery operated fan in my hand " Have some respect and turn that damn thing off, if you are bored, there is the exit" and he points to the door, I was like "OMG, I was'nt bored at all, just F -ing hot, was I wrong to have the little fan in my hand ? Anyway I ignored him the rest of the day, he has'nt changed a bit, he's every bit as shallow and self asborbed as he always has been, Sigh........ I was glad when it was time to leave, I felt uncomfortable making small talk to relatives I hardly ever see, by the way Jackie I tried to answer your email earlier but I got a message saying you were'nt accepting mail from me, not sure why that is , but to answer your question a month from today I will be going on a cruise to Alaska with my mom and brother, Alaska sounds good right now, it's pretty warm here even now, but a little breeze is kicking up, thank God, hope you all have a good Friday, I'll be back blogging tommorow that is if I do'nt melt, A huge thank you to Leene for the sympathy card that came in the mail today, thanks so much Leene for thinking of me,  I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Tommorow is the memorial service

 Hi friends, hope your Wednesday was a good one, it is really hot here now - 90 degrees, whew !!!!!!! Tommorow is my dad's memorial service, I am feeling a bit anxious because of my obnoxious ass Uncle Max who will be attending.He is blunt to the point and quite rude and very obnoxious not to mention a drunk too.I am hoping tommorow if he is smart he will stay the hell away from me, however knowing him the way I do he is'nt smart.I swear to God if he comes over and tries to talk to me, I will get up and walk away, promise, Anyhow please wish me luck tommorow, it will be an emotional day, no doubt, When I saw the rack of Father's Day cards in my store today , I fought the urge to toss a blanket over the rack, my dad was no angel, but in the end he did soften up a little and become a little more human, it's just too bad it took him getting sick for that to happen, better late then never I guess, I Love You All, Pray I get through tommorow, Love Lisa XOXO

Please keep Angie in your prayers, she has shingles, I pray she gets better quickly .Angie if I lived closer , I would come over and take care of you, Lisa Jo, thank you so much for the sympathy card, it came today, that was so thoughtful of you , when I was at work I saw an older man walking around in the Food Court in a grey skirt, whatever floats your boat, I guess.Hope you all have a good Wednesday, oh by the way for the CSI fans, the new CSI magazine ( June/ July issue) that came out today has an awesome Jorja Fox article and a sweet Warrick one too, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

There will be a memorial service next Thursday for dad, I am nervous about seeing some of the relatives there, my Uncle Max is both rude and obnoxious, he embarrased me in front of everyone at a party a few years ago poking me in the stomach and telling me I had "put on some weight" Ugh I ca'nt stand him, any hints on how to avoid him ?  By the way I have a book reccomendation for you all - I bought The Last Lecture today at Target by Randy Pausch, he is an amazing man that has pancreatic cancer , he was on Dateline not too long ago and watching him talk made me cry because of his huge love for his family,  he is an inspiration and very wise, I highly reccomend hs book, Hope you all have a great weekend, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Hi friends, today was not an easy day, but all of you made it better, reality is starting to sink in that dad is no longer here , I have'nt cried yet but I know it will happen.I'm just glad dad is 'nt suffering anymore, no human being deserves that, cancer is a relentless disease, I admire anyone who has beat cancer or has lived to tell about it, thank you all for the kind comments and prayers and well wishes for my family, also thank you to all the kind new J- landers who have visited my CSI journal leaving loving words for me, I truly appreciate it, I Love You All Beyond Words, thank you for being there for me , Love Lisa XOXOXOXO

Some more Beast News

Hi friends, hope you all had a good Saturday, I just came back from dad's , he was lying in bed but we had a good conversation and I kissed him when I left and told him I loved him, my Uncle was torn up about dad's condition and was in tears when we left tonight, I am going to try and see my dad as much as I can while he is still around, When I went by work today Lydia shared some news with me about the Beast, I found out why those Police were at my store that day,Melissa had told them someone tried to mug her when she went out to the parking garage one night, I say  "What a crock of shit" to that, Melissa was like 6 feet tall, she was like a huge Amazon woman,  um does'nt make sense to me at all,betcha anything she lied to those police to get some attention , also Lydia told me one time a customer called our store to complain about Melissa because she had been rude to them, when asked to describe what the rude person looked like the customer had said "She was really tall and had the ugliest face I ever saw" Yeah I would say that is pretty fitting, lol. Hope you all have a good Sunday,  tonight on CBS at 9:00 p.m. is the Cold Case Season Finale, should be good, I Love You All Lisa XOXO P.S. Anyone who would like a postcard from where I am going this week, let me know ok, I'm taking my address book with me, lol.
