More ways to make money, including some weird ones

Warning: This post does contain material that is not suitable for underage people

If you type in "make money at home" or anything like that into Google, it gives you millions of pages. Most of these pages are lists that fellow users of the internet have compiled onto their own blogs for people, and I know I have made one of my own awhile back. So here is the updated list.

for you artistic people:

* the classic, minimal fee website for people who make jewelry, soaps, clothing and anything else really

* design t-shirts, or rather, put artwork up for people to buy and put on t shirts themselves.

* this one is a bit tricky. You submit your design and if it is voted for and picked then you get paid for it to be produced.

Here`s one I never even thought of. Everyone gets out of jury duty, even though they sometimes compensate you for your time. But how about getting compensated without wasting the gas? Money in the pocket, maybe.


* the game is webpage based, with horrible graphics and the only option is a male character. The game runs for a month, then your gold is translated into cash. about 10k gold is a dollar, and 5 dollars is the payout. Each month the game is reset, everything back to zero, the higher your level and the faster you level, the more you make. Its best not to waste money on fancy weapons and armor, you find plenty in the dungeons. The website is foreign so there are horrible spelling errors, but hey, 45 min a day for a month and an easy possible 15-20 bucks right?

  there`s only one website and thats Some states have a program that allows recyclebank to pay you based on the amount of stuff you recycle each month.

Also check state laws because there is a market for just about anything you can recycle.
Sell used tires to used tire shops, scrapping, aluminum deposits, glass deposits, some websites even buy boxes and used shipping material. I even found a website that buys used golf balls, for all of you that thought that living next to a golf course was annoying! ( The details on how to sell to them are a bit hazy, I`m requesting more information myself.

Like to blab? Like to give opinions? get paid to write reviews on products. The higher your rating, the more you can make. My username is Kihluna so look me up.

For the mothers:

Has helpful job postings and articles on working from home.

Now for the fun stuff. If you`re under 18 leave now.

Make money from perverts!

Sell used panties- even men can do this, or hire a woman to wear them, any size is sellable. Pairs sell for 15-20 bucks apiece. Just google it

Pretty feet?- like to get pedicures? put up an ad on backpage or google how to get paid for foot worship, which can either mean in person foot loving, or selling your pics or videos wearing socks, shoes, or bare feet.

Be a virtual prostitute- its not illegal lol. does require a start up fee though :/

There are plenty of websites on the web that pay you to be a videocam girl, any size so big girls don`t be afraid to look it up. Some sites allow just phone sex, or just webcam, some even allow only sexting. Get paid to write dirty text messages, really!.

Some adult E magazines will pay for writing sex stories

Hope these help people!

The update to end all updates

New House:
Well if you remember we were in a bind with out old house, the landlord took off out of state after a woman and pretty much dumped his 6 houses on his ex wife and his brother. Our house belonged to the brother, he didnt want renters. So after much drama we found this duplex in lehigh. Even though it is a "duplex" and we have people on the other sides of the walls, we cant even hear them! and they have a parade of kids in and out of there every day..I think they babysit or something idk. But the duplex is actually bigger than the house lol, and better maintained, but not by much. We have issues with the well and septic that the property manager doesnt seem to concerned about. We have to choose between leaving a septic alarm on all the time or being able to flush the toilets. Dont really care, one day the septic will explode and we`ll be like "told you so"
The house has a 1.5 car garage and a master bed/bath so no more sharing bathrooms  (yay!!)  couple of downfalls though. we have a dish washer, but only 6 cabinets[-( not talking...and a tiny half foot deep pantry...and I`m getting into a :stockpiling: habit so I`m getting creative with storing things. 


I had to leave behind my onions and garlic because the totes snapped when we moved them, but we got the majority of the garden over here. I had to restart my loofahs and cucumbers because we live partially in the woods now so Ive had issues with bugs...~X( at wits' endI tried to keep it organic but i broke down and bought some pesticide. (though we werent paying attention till I read the full bottle it ended up being "organic" pesticide. I have also added some foxglove, lavender, dill, strawberry and some other native florida plants to try and spruce up the area. I have some pumpkin vines fighting with squash beetles too out there. Both of my tomatoes died so I have 2 more, but pretty much everything is suffering from the florida heat and flash flood rainstorms. I can`t wait for fall. Planted some watermelon, sunflower and cucumber today as well, hung them on the chainlink fence so I can train the vines to grow on it.  
  The only other thing that bugs us is that the whole back yard has a 6 foot chainlink around it with a gate by each garage. It`s not split so we eitehr have to block the dogs from getting back there or keep checking the neighbors gate to make sure it is shut.
 OH and there is this horribly annoying vine that keeps taking over the fence. I`m out there every week trying to cut it back. We are trying to machete a path on the wooded side so i can spray vine killer along the ground.

Drake:~^o^~ cheer
Drake is walking! We have had nothing but sucess after the surgery, he is eating but refuses to learn with a fork or spoon. He doesnt even want plates and tends to throw them. We have weaned him from bottles and he is on straight sippy cups now. We have one with a straw as well but none of us can get it to work. We got kicked out of therapy because we havent been able to attend, just didnt have the gas since we live farther away from the boys jobs. But they sent us this huge packet of stuff to work on with him, and ortho said the 50% curve in his spine has dropped to 25%. He doesnt need braces or anything either so we can finally put shoes on the kid lol.


Okay about 3 weeks ago diamond died. The new house has wood and tile and she slipped a few times and then just couldnt get up anymore..We had to take her out to the ranch for dad to put down. Its been hell here since then. The others are fighting for top dog and since my back is injured I havent been able to stop them really. 
  We also ended up taking in a new dog, Jordan. The boys kept sending me ads from craigslist for a 4th dog after diamond  was gone trying to cheer me up. I halfheartedly texted or called each one, and jordan already had a new home. Few days after that jordans owner informed me that the shelter had him and asked if i still wanted him..I was shocked at what I got. Our "new dog" is half starved and was dragged under a car by his throat and then amaturely cauterized. He is 3 but has the teeth of a six year old, and is in very bad shape.  He is such a sweet dog, he puts up with all of the treatments and goes to the vet for wraps and penecillin every three days.
   He is Joshs new best friend. Josh finally has a dog that sleeps with him at night lol.
Also...we got a finch. Drake wanted her. Tweety Bird

well I havent been in the best health really. 3.5 weeks ago I was walking sassy and she pulled my shoulder nearly out. The next morning my back was on fire, it got worse and after 2 weeks i went to the er. Turns out she over-extended my back muscles. Its like round ligament pain from pregnancy, only at the base of my spine. Takes 6+ weeks to heal fully, but at least today I can bend over without falling. 
 I`ve started to make most of our household stuff as well, I have a horrible rash in my armpits from the natural deodorant lol. Turns out when you quit using commercial products your body goes through withdrawls lol. It was horrible for 2 days but now im peeling and even though I havent put any on in 2 days there is no B.O at all! Turns out commercial deodorant has aluminum flakes in it, and a chemical that makes you perspire, so you keep buying it.
  Same with the toothpaste. Flouride is actually pretty bad for your teeth, especially bc its put in our drinking water so you get more than enough of it every day. Its added to anything made with water. Its been tough getting the boys to use home made toothpaste because it tastes pretty horrible, but it leaves your teeth dentist clean, and we use a Colgate Complete mouthwash with little or no flouride. 
  As soon as we run out of something I figure out how to make it homemade. We no longer buy box dinners, but instead I make sauces and use block velveeta and pasta since its usually B1G1free.  

Also our foodstamps is going up to like 425 a month so we are storing cans in totes under the couches, and our bed, We also are collecting shelves and small dressers and stacking them in the garage 
 so far I make creamer, homemade hershey syrup, laundry detergent (liquid, solid and granular) and fabric softener, febreeze, toothpaste, deodorant, and conditoner.

We no longer use those plug ins, bc studies found they can lead to respitory problems. Instead the flea market has a store that sells essential oils and fragrances, I mix some with water and spray the house, we also use an oil burner, going to try my hand at potpourri soon as well. 

I`ve started taking a variety of daily suppliments, as the back scare has made me realize I really need to get my stuff together. B12,D3, C, a multi gummy, E, something for my eyes and an estrogen suppliment bc I think thats my big issue is the birth control messing up my hormones. 

We have really cut back, No more cable, no home phone. We dont pay for water here, and electric was only 95$ this month dispite people leaving lights on everywhere. We strategically placed the fishtanks so no more nightlights or noise makers (babys room)and theres only 4 windows on the whole house and we have the south side so we get less sun as well lol.

Book I`m reading: Go Green, Live Rich by David Bach

I went to the library for one specific book, which I will mention when I read it, and ended up leaving with 15 books! I`m on a mission to learn as much as I can about living green,  rural homestead type stuff, cutting back, saving without killing ourselves and gardening since these are all things I can do from home when the husband gets his new ID and can go back to work.
  This book "Go Green, Live Rich by David Bach" was actually the second thing I picked off the shelf. Its supposed to tell the reader 50 ways to live a greener lifestyle without going into bankruptcy. I`m currently in the process of reading it and I`m going to be making notes as I go without spoiling the book for everyone else. ;)

   So far tip number one is to determine your own carbon footprint so you can see where you stand in our planet`s plight. He gives you a nifty website to do this in under 3 minutes and surprisingly our footprint was 8.0/15.0(the 15.0 being the entire U.S) so I don`t think we`re doing too bad, but there`s always room for improvement. The website also shows you ways to improve, and other spiffy facts.

  Another really good tip that I myself will be looking into is water usage. I already plan on trying to find a way to save rainwater to use for the garden, since summers in florida are  half rain, half sweltering heat, but now I`m reading that low flow faucets and showerheads help conserve water. I`ve read and seen television shows that complain about low flow, saying that it "feels like a homeless man is peeing on me"- Samantha Who, or all the advertising for the massaging showerheads. Really though, I love me a massaging showerhead, but it kinda eliminates the need for my husband or submissive to rub me down, and do we really need to be pelted with pressurized water? I think I could adapt, not sure about the others in the house but eh, I keep track of the money :)

    There is also a chapter on how to green up your house, and no its not all about sun gathering and all that, but also about the products you use. I`m already researching the internet to try and find recipes online to make my own shampoo and stuff like that, see how much I can cut back. Sorry avon

 So I`m finished with the book, all in all it is a very helpful book. It`s short enough so you don`t fall asleep reading it, but filled with enough information to help you get a good idea of how to start out on the right path towards living green. I hope you check your local bookstore or library for this one.

Silver Lining?

So either god hates me or I just have some bad juju following me around..(anyone know someone who can get rid of that?)..but we`ve had a rough go of it the past few weeks. While the baby is recovering from surgery quite well, Tony`s been out of work.  Luckily he just landed a job that should help us meet the rent at least.
  Turns out our landlord just up and left a few months ago..explains why no one`s come by for the rent in 2 months. Well he left some of his houses in the care of his wife, and the others belong to his brother..guess which we fell under. The brother wants to sell the house, and already has a buyer who isn`t interested in renting it out. We were pretty much told to either come up with 58k to buy the shit hole or get out. So as much as I don`t like it, we`re moving. BUT as luck would have it that same night, after applying to every single house for rent on craigslist, at 8:42pm a duplex in lehigh came up! We called the number right away even though it was 9:15 at night lol.
   We went and looked at it already, and though it is small, I`ll finally have my own bathroom and dishwasher. Oh and water is included! Its 50$ cheaper a month and we dont have the water bill anymore. Problem is my dad isnt very happy its in lehigh. But we have checked it against the county records to make sure it is legit, and the owner has taken it off the market. The girl in it now is gonna be out on the 15th and we are trying to come up with as much as possible to get in. But we def. have a place.
   The biggest issue with finding a place is our animals. As you know most of them are rescues and their behaviour would get them put down. Sassy has separation anxiety and Kingsley is as aloof as a cat but as needy as a child. Not something anyone really wants around.

Drake`s head surgery

We just got home from St. Pete Hospital on friday. Drake was admitted for surgery on Tuesday the 9th. It was really scary to have to sit in the waiting room not knowing what was happening for a whole hour. The only thing worse I could imagine was either getting a bad phone call or having to sit there for more than one hour.
  Drake needed to have his spinal entry into his head made bigger. They said his hole in the bottom of his head was so small it was pinching his spine and causing issues. His neurosurgeon was Dr. Carey. She is a very friendly woman who tells you in blunt terms what needs to be done, what she wants to do, and how she will do it. She was very reassuring and confident.

  He came through just fine. It is still painful to see the row of stitches running up the back of his head but he is sitting up again and cruising just fine. Somehow though I`ve become more distant from him and it makes me feel guilty and pained. Right now he is awake in his crib babbling and I want to go in there and play with him, but it is an hour past his bedtime and I don`t want him to get used to being up at 9pm, also every time I try to play with him he pushes me away and gets fussy.
  We came home not even 5 days later and he has made a perfect recovery. I would recommend this surgery to anyone with a child who has Achondroplaisa. The name of the surgery was a Spinal Decompression of the Foamen Magnum. Meaning, she shaved away some bone from the base of his skull in order to make the hole bigger so his spine was able to get more fluid flow. At no time was his head control compromised.

 We`ve always had this kind of relationship. Whenever Tony or Josh are around he laughs and plays but with me he just gets fussy and/or hits. Maybe I should just accept that this is my role.

I am a great fan of Anime, but I am picky when it comes to watching it. I enjoy the drawing styles and feminization of male characters. I also enjoy strong characters and shows that actually move me. Like most children`s cartoons I have a hard time getting into, even those that have plot. There are a few that have caught my attention such as One Piece and The Amazing World Of Gumball, that last one mainly because of the stuff in it that children wouldn`t understand that crack me up. Also Billy and Mandy from cartoon network.

a few of my all time favorites, meaning I have finished them and actually wished there were more, include:

Wolfs Rain
Fruits Basket
Elfen Lied
Witch blade
Full metal Alchemis
Hell Girl
Samurai Champloo
Burst Angel
Queens Blade
Angelic Layer
Cowboy Bebop
Soul Eater
Speed Grapher
Black Butler

Will update the list as I finish each series. The links to purchase them from amazon are on my store widget at the bottom of the page :)

Joshua, the pet

So I figured it was about time I talk about my "Taboo" activities, namely Joshua.

I am not legally married to Tony yet, and my relationship with Joshua shouldn`t change when I am so. I am a Mistress, in a bdsm relationship with a boy named Josh. He is a submissive in choosing, signing a contract with me to serve me as a pet.
As formal as it all sounds, that is the way we have worded it. In reality he pretty much signed a contract with me to be a servant, or slave if you will. He chose this and he lives happily, only being punished when doing something wrong. 

Josh is the type of person who needs someone to control him, which I have stepped in to do. He is nearly incapable of being happy without someone guiding him and controlling his actions. Like most Submissives in a S/M relationship, he has duties that he is expected to perform, and a list of rules that he is required to follow. He is rewarded and punished as necessary. Josh finds happiness in my happiness.
  So far we are exploring service, foot worship, enemas, pain threshold management, punishment and reward, sexual with holding and a few other things. We have located some literature on the subject and found a local group to explore other kinks such as bondage. It is going very well.
Update: 4/25/13
    Josh is doing well, with rare punishments. We have started exploring pegging. He has been collared and is soon to be caged as well. This year will be 2 years for us :)

Now for anyone who doesn`t understand there is plenty of literature both on and off the web explaining our relationship. Or feel free to email me at

Reference from a friend "This Film is not yet rated"

So my friend Jackie told me about his documentary that shows us how films get rated and I thought I would do another "watch while blogging" blog about it.

So far its given us a bit of a background about how parents started rating films so they could tell others which movies were safe to bring their children to. Then we get a lovely, stirring opening full of blocked out sex scenes.
Then we meet the person who wrote "boys don`t cry" and she tells us how there`s a scene where the guy comes up from eating his girlfriend out and wipes the cum off his face, and instantly they slap an NC-17 rating on it, but then later the writer kills the character very violently and they don`t say a word about it which kinda sets her off. This gives us just a taste of how inconsistent the raters are. Then they say that the girl`s orgasm is too long, which doesn`t make any sense until you watch the orgasm for yourself and see that it`s scary to the raters because it`s about female pleasure.

Then they have voice recordings of other writers talking about the stupid things they`ve had to do. They have had to cut their films or alter them to remove dildos, to remove any chance of woman-on-woman action etc. The raters refuse to give an actual "list" of stuff they disprove of and therefore mark NC-17 but seem very inconsistent, and who`s to say that they are actually right for thinking such things anyway? Why should the opinions of these people come into play? Maybe they should just make a list and if a film has a certain amount of the things on the list then they categorize the film that way.
These people think that they are "gods" of a sort, that get to lay the standards for films when its all sort of childish. The ratings are as follows:

G: general audiences, no nudity, sex or drugs and violence must be minimal and cartoonish and may contain "children`s" curse words such as "rats", "darn", or "fart."

PG: parental guidance. There may be curse words, brief nudity and light violence such as getting kicked in the ass etc.

PG-13: this is for parents who don`t mind getting questions from their kids. "Shit" is not acceptable, and so is "fuck" but only once in the whole movie. Also depends on the manner in which the "Fuck" was said. If it was at someone it is fine but if it refers to sex or anything sexual it isn`t accepted. Seriously? How does this make any sense?

If there is any sexual innuendo and any violence or drugs it is immediately given an R

R: restricted. No children under 18 unless accompanied by an adult. This isn`t an all out free for all though. There may be sex, nudity and tough violence and frank sex talk. But the sex has to be only missionary. Anything depicting anything other than missionary, involving fetishes, old people, animals or anything the rating people just plain don`t like such as gay or lesbian sex, it gets slapped with an NC-17

NC-17: no children under 17. period. And if you get an NC-17 you risk not getting advertising which hurts the money made from the film.

If you choose not to accept the rating, you don`t get commercials, radio or anything advertising. No stores really carry nc-17s, walmart, kmart etc. So pretty much you cut your film to fit their needs or you don`t make any money.
then we learn a bit more about how people have been treated by the ratings people and I finally get an answer to an old question "What is an independent film'?
Well as it turns out an independent film is a filmmaker who dished out the money to get the film produces without having it rated. They seek to operate without all the restrictions of today. So maybe watch more Independent films to get a better viewing experience.
Out of 3o countries the MPAA doesn`t disclose who the rating people are, so it could be your neighbor, or your mom lol. It is actually really odd that this agency who is "working for us" won`t actually tell us who they are.
Then the producer decides to hire a private investigator and we follow the PI around. We learn that there isn`t a way to just walk into the MPAA building. They wait for a few cars to leave around lunch time so they can be followed and see if we can talk to them or discover who they are.
We meet a few people who have decided to speak out and share some secrets from within and we do learn that there is no training process, or charting process to determine what each film should be rated. They were offended by what some of the others had to say about movies that had been cut and it made them feel uneasy.
What I find interesting is that even with all the secrecy, the government hasn`t stepped in. And the rules and rating system is against the first amendment, so anyone off the street could mount a case against the MPAA but no one has because they are afraid. No one knows what would happen, and there are probably enough people who support these ratings to keep the MPAA functioning.
Sony, Warner Brothers, Universal, Walt Disney, Fox and Paramount control more than 95% of the US film industry, and guess who`s side they are on? The MPAA. No onder people are making more and more independent films these days. And these companies have sister companies that all together control over 90% of all media in the United States. After an excerpt from the MPAA confidentiality statement it is made clear that they do not want anyone knowing what is said within that building`s walls. When asked to give a list of what employees or former employees aren`t allowed to discuss, they refused. This way they are able to sue anyone who has worked for them at any given time because these people don`t know what they can and cannot talk about.
Armed with a tiny spy camera, the Pi and her friend`s daughter are following an employee as they emerge from the MPAA building, in hopes of getting some answers. We manage to get a glimpse of some possible raters.
Then we hear some more inconsistencies. "The cooler" was given and NC-17 because there was some pubic hair but in "Scream" or one of the parody's I don`t really know, the woman got her fake breast ripped out and that movie got rated an "R"

That`s all I really have to say, I`m 38 minutes into the movie so I`m sure it will get more controversial but you`ll have to watch it and see for yourself. It is on Netflix "This film is not yet rated"

Avon Products

So I`ve been an Avon sales rep for a few months now, and its really not that hard (and I`m not a people person) I am actually kinda shy in real life so if I can put in a 300$ order, I`m sure someone crazy and outgoing could do much better for themselves.
Most people I meet think Avon is cheap, useless junk. So I have been trying out different products here and there and I thought I would shed some light on the ones I personally love.

Lotus shield anti-frizz: Though the bottle is really tiny, take advantage of the low prices and deals and stock up on it when you can! This stuff really does help. It takes a few days of doing it, but I saw results by day 2, I still have some frizz, but my hair is much more manageable.

Keep it clear treatment: Anti dandruff stuff. It is icy and cold when massaging into the scalp and even stays cold while blow drying....weird. But it does the job, just be careful to only put a drop or two in each spot or you`ll end up with a greasy spot in your hair.

Fergie fragrance: I LOVE this perfume. It has two smells, a day and night one. I like the "Intense" scent better, but it smells really really good.

Silicone Glove: is this nifty, smooth hand cream. The directions say you`re supposed to put it on before doing housework. I haven`t tried that but it does protect hands from overnight chills and the lows here in Florida lol.

Foot works pumice cream: I love the smell and feel of this stuff. It does the work of a 20 minute pumice session in the tub, while sitting wherever you please. Simply put on, wait a few minutes and massage off. It smells good and you can see the tiny bits of pumice, and walnut shells.

Solutions Vibes roller: Is an under eye treatment. Works some days but not others for me, might work better for someone else.

Skin so soft gelled body oil: Has this amazing feel when it hits your skin. Its cool, wet, but not slimy. The original scent is what I use, which smells like baby powder. It does leave a residue, but that fades after a few minutes and leaves the scent and the feel. Perfect for after shaving or nightly renewal.

Silky Stay Shave gel: Speaking of shaving. The Avon shave "gel" isn`t really what you would expect in a gel. It is a little runny, but you only need a pea sized drop to do one entire leg.

Foot works Arthritis and achy muscle cream: Careful! this one is like a wake up call to your senses. It contains Glucosamine and Chondroitin to help soothe your feet and ankles, but the scent is a very strong minty smell. I can smell it through my clogged senses from the flu.

Lavender overnight cream: A foot cream that goes well with those fuzzy socks infused with lotions and aloe and whatnot. Or just by itself. When you peel off your socks in the morning and put your feel down on the ground, its like the feel you`re feeling with aren`t your own. They`re smooth, and supple, and smell great too!

Skin so soft "Soft indulgences": is a new line from Skin So Soft coming out soon. I bought it as a demo and fell in love. It has this extreme grapefruit citrus smell to it and comes in a body wash, lotion and body spray collection that layers nicely for an all day pleasure to the nostrils. And it has this "tingly" effect that really helps you wake up so I would pair it with that acne "wake up" facewash for a new morning routine.

Solutions body "liquid bra": So this line is rarely heard of or talked about from what I`ve read. I don`t really need it because my tits are big enough at "DDD"`s but I do like the effect I have seen. So its this runny pink lotion type stuff that you rub on your boobs after a shower, before bed, before leaving for work etc, and it "plumps them up" after a few days. I believe it makes your boobs retain moisture, because the effect wears off if you discontinue use, but I like the rounding out it gives me, better cleavage, firmer. Does the job without getting a boob job.

Avon Naturals sugarplum: Not sure if it is a seasonal thing, or if you can order year round, but I ordered some for the holidays and fell in love with the scent. Thinking about trying out more of the Naturals line.

Netflix find "Dive" (documentary on America`s waste)

So I found this documentary while going through netflix one day, started watching it today. These people dumpster dive at the back of supermarkets and stores, showing viewers what America is wasting. Such as a carton of eggs tossed because one egg was cracked. Making me a bit queasy but I can understand where they are coming from. This family is eating like kings, from the dumpster.

A shot of the fridge showed 5 cartons of eggs, 10 packs of chicken and piles of other fruits, veggies and meat. 20% of landfills in America are made up of "consumer waste" which means just because one potato was moldy, that the entire bag gets to rot somewhere when instead the supermarket could just donate the un-moldy food to charity, or soup kitchens. The most common dumpster ingredients are organic food. So that carton of eggs that is "cage free" or "organic chicken fed" that you would pay 6$+ for in the supermarket, is now free because the sell by date was that day, or its missing an egg etc.
In just one week of dumpster diving the family had enough meat to survive a whole year. Why aren`t more people dumpster diving? None of the supermarkets would be interviewed on or off camera about why they weren`t doing something about all the unused food.

I find it sort of poetic, that these people can literally take "one mans waste" and feed their families. Even though dumpster diving is illegal and they do get caught and have been arrested for for dumpster diving and taking unwanted food.

The food bank of America is short about 11 million pounds of food each year even though supermarkets are part of the affiliates and regularly donate food, but the food in the dumpsters would help the food bank meet their quota with about 10 million pounds to spare! And its not just the supermarkets, food waste happens on the farm while picking, in transit, during processing, its amazing any food makes it to the shelves at all.
They even show you the math showing you in different graphs how much food is wasted and how it could help us to reuse it. Like if we fed the unused food to pigs that were being raised for meat it would raise 200 thousand piglets, which would save us money on grains but hurt the pockets of the wealthy grain farmers, who are growing corn below cost anyway!
Example: with the U.S`s food waste, the entire country of Haiti could be fed for a year or more, so why aren`t we doing it?

"Nearly half of the kids and 90% of black children will be on food stamps at some point in their lives"
So true, I my self am on food stamps, but I coupon clip and stockpile our food, and grow some of it out in my 2 gardens. Anything we don`t eat goes to the dogs or the rats or is composted or recycled. We barely put anything in a trash can.

And some of the waste is due to people not knowing enough about food to determine whether or not it is safe to eat still. Back in the day everyone knew how to tell a bad egg from a good egg, but now we just go by labels, even though the "best by" dates are usually off by about a week to keep companies from getting sued. When I worked at McDonald's we threw out food every day. Sometimes we would take home parfaits or salads, and let me tell you they last much longer than 8-12 hours. We had fruit and yogurt parfaits a week and a half later.
We all are to blame really. America has become lazy, which is obvious because we actually had to invent video game systems to get us up off the couch, our kids are obese, diabetes is a common household word and nobody cares. Not surprising that most of the food that is wasted is fresh food. No one wants to cook anymore!

Little old me

Maybe we need to get to know each other a little bit more. I go by Kihluna online, so why choose "SplynterReality" as the name for my blog? Well I didn`t understand it at first, it just seemed right. Like picking a name for a pet, you don`t make the pet take the name, you look at them, and the name just pops into your head.
It took a bit more soul searching to find the meaning to my blog name, and I`m sorry if the name means something different to someone else, or is already being used. To me, personally, SplynterReality is me. I have splintered my life to fit the different needs of the people and animals around me, my family, but I have not lost who I am. Instead, I became more than one person, confined within one. With each personality comes a different mindset.

There`s the Wife, though Tony and I aren`t married yet. I have to babysit him because he is a man after all, you know, do the nagging thing. Making sure bills are paid, meals are cooked, laundry is done etc.

There`s the Mother, to Drake. I`m the "mean" parent, I do the punishing, the feeding, the bathing, the spanking, wiping and suctioning his nose. Everything he hates to do, I do because I have more patience. Especially the dr`s visits.

There is also the Mistress, to Josh. Truthfully it`s like having a very intelligent dog, and when he`s bad, he gets punished. (more on that in a later blog)

Not to mention the Owner/mommy. With so many animals, I take on a different role, as a pack leader of sorts. All the dogs, rats, and fish answer to me and know what is expected of them.

I am also all over the web (or I will be.)

also please check out this online store with prices at least 50% off

not to mention the blogging. Thats all for now, may be updated later.

The Fur Children

Now for a rundown of our many, many pets. I love animals, but I make sure that each one we have is properly taken care of and that we can afford to take care of any that we take in, otherwise I find new homes for them. We have 3 dogs.

Sassy, shes almost 2 now. A pitbull/greyhound mix. We found her on craigslist and when we went to meet her it was pouring outside and the trailer she lived under was flooded. The owner didn`t want to go into the rain so I crawled under the trailer home and pulled her out, muddy, wet and stinky. She came home with us that evening and we never contacted those people again. Sassy has a bit of a barking problem, but I think that`s because the fence surrounding our house is tall and wooden so she can`t see out. We go to the dog park whenever possible, trying to socialize her.
Sassy is very protective of Drake, and has been known to growl at the other dogs if they get annoyed with the baby. Sassy lets the baby chew on her ears, cleans his face. At one point she put her snout un his onesie and nuzzled him when he was sleeping on the playmat and was crying out in his sleep. She also has issues with men, and whenever I yell "sassy help!" will come over and put herself between me and whoever is "attacking" me. Usually she just licks them to death, but if either of my boys ever raised a hand to me I know she would do more than that.
Sassy has alot of energy. She`s tore up 3 pairs of blinds, the loveseat and the carpet before we realized she has separation anxiety. We crate trained her and now whenever I leave the house she runs and gets in her king sized crate covered in pillows and gets a treat. She`s such a doll.

Then there is Kingsley. He is a beagle, and a skinny Beagle at that. Since we took him from a hispanic guy he has gained maybe 5 pounds. He came back clean for all worms so no one can give us a clue as to why he doesn`t gain weight. We`ve tried puppy food, people food, protein, vitamins, bacon grease, everything. So as long as he doesn`t lose his energy we are just going to let him stay skinny.
Kingsley had a bit of an issue with potty training, and he seems to have been beaten at some point in his life. We think he`s 3. He cowers when you yell at him, and yelps if you grab at him, like to push him off your seat or trying to get him into his crate when we leave. He has a funny little trot and his ears fly up when he runs. Little man isn`t fond of Drake though, and gets an attitude whenever the baby tries to grab at him, but he loves Tony. Since its been cold here in sunny florida he`s been sleeping under the blankets between myself and Tony, like a little heater.

Last but not least is Diamond, my pitt/mutt mix. She`s a grand 15 years old. I have had her for as long as I can remember. I put her in my pocket not long after she was weaned and tail docked because the mama-dog`s owner was going to kill her. She was the runt. My dad let me keep her with a little coercion from my stepmom at the time. Later Diamond`s mother Brownie died along with most of the puppies, a rattlesnake had gotten into the pen with them.
She spent a few good years running around like crazy with our other dogs at the time Midnight and Bart. Then Midnight got out and was eaten by a gator. We later switched houses on the ranch. My father is the head mechanic for Babcock Florida company, and he lives on the ranch still. When we switched houses and Bart died of old age Diamond was a little too rambunctious. We had a pen out back that she shared with the pigs for almost 3 years. Whenever I came down for the summer from Maryland she stayed out of the pen till I went home when school started. Dad called it "the box" and we think that it changed her personality. Now I don`t agree with locking your dogs up for three years but I was like 11 and had no say in the matter, but it did make her want to stay at the house. When she was let out when I came to live on the ranch at 13-14 years old, she never left the yard.
Dad taught her lessons the hard way. If she jumped out of the truckbed at the supermarket in town, he left her. She would show up at home the next day without fail, or a cowboy would pick her up running down highway 31 coming home. If he was out on a job on the ranch and she wouldn`t get in the truck, he made her run home. In her prime she could keep up with a truck going 45mph for at least 30minutes before slowing down. But she always came home.
We took her with us when we moved off the ranch, and she does pretty well in town. She`s old and has arthritis from the years of living outside and surviving hurricanes and running miles a day, so we dont take her out for walks or for rides in the car anymore. She goes outside whenever she wants and justs lays there, gets cookies every day, treats and tablescraps. She has her own bed in nearly every room of the house except maybe the bathroom lol. She`s living the life now, finally retired.

Now on to the Rats. There are 9 of them, 6 males 3 females. Seperate cages of course. I`ve done a bit of swapping with a friend to get to where we are now. Started out with 3 white females. They weren`t ever handled as babies so they made pretty horrible pets. I then took in 4 more females because they came with a cage that the boys now live in.

Eventually we got one male rat, Curly seen above with Sassycakes. He lived on the back of the couch with no issues from the dogs, all by himself. Curly developed a taste for coffee, and would hunt Tony down and stick his face in the coffee mug every morning.

Well Tony was cleaning one day and put Curly in the cage with the girls not thinking. Needless to say we had babies.
Blossom gave birth and we kept 4 boys, (Brutus, Dante, Caesar and CJ "curly junior")and gave the rest away to my friend along with blossom and her friend Buttercup. We kept the 2 hairless females.

After they grew it became nearly impossible to tell the difference between Curly, Cj and Caesar. The children grew bigger than Curly lol. So I go by size and fur type. Curly is a rex rat, so his fur is...well Curly lol. Caesar was some curlyness while Cj is mostly straigh haired and fat...and lazy.

At some point one of the hairless females became pregnant. We suspected Brutus as the father because of coloring and because the mother, Kanga was so mean she bit everyone except for him. The reason he was even near her was because we thought he was a girl for awhile. His nuts dropped late. Anyway Kanga killed all but 4 babies and I kept the one boy Dimitri, he was so tiny. He is the biggest rat I have now, but he`s missing 2 toes and has no nails on that same foot.

Last but not least my fish. I have 2 tanks, both about 45 gallons. One has about 8 carp. 4 big goldfish and 4 koi fish ranging in size along with a large Pleco (suckerfish)My second tank has a green severum, a gold severum, an albino oscar, a giant gourami and a tiny tiny pleco who has to hide for his life every day. I`ll have pics of them later, they`re not the easiest things to capture on camera.

Drake Anthony-Eraven Nargi

Okay, like before I mentioned I have a son with Achondroplasia. This means he has a big head, normal sized torso and shorter arms/legs, just like his father. There may be more to it but I am by no means, a doctor, I`m just going by what I`ve been told by doctor after doctor.
Thankfully, he was a C-section. His head was in the 100th percentile and much to Tony`s mother`s dismay, I wasn`t about to destroy myself and risk my childs` life by trying to do that naturally. (I wanted the C-section anyway)
Drake progresses mobility-wise just a little slower than normal babies, but he is twice as smart. At 3 months he could hold his own bottle, but at 11 months he still cannot sit up on his own.
We have a team of drs. who monitor everything about him. Ent,Neuro,Ortho, Pulmology, genetics, pediatricians, therapists, sleep studies, etc. It keeps me busy enough so that even if I had a job I would be out for most of the month. So getting fired the day after Christmas was like a gift to me.

But as was as babies go, its really nice to have a baby with dwarfism. He`s still wearing 3month onesies, still wearing size 2 diapers, has a smaller appetite. He sleeps in the weirdest positions too, just like his father, and snores. Drake is intelligent too, he has already figured out how to unlock Sassy`s crate, and lock the sliding glass door. He has a projectile vomit problem which he uses like a defense mechanism, whenever he is startled or scared (or disciplined) he throws up everywhere. The GI doctor says it will calm down as he learns to sit and stand, which he is doing more and more every day.

This last one was the night of the sleep study at Healthpark Hospital. The results showed only snoring, no sleep apnea for this guy. Its very common for babies with dwarfism to develop sleep apnea, which is dangerous from what I am told, thankfully, only Drake`s snoring wakes him up at night, and a few night terrors here and there.

A less than humble welcome

Welcome to my blog, this is my first pubic blog and I`m not quite sure what to do with it at the moment so here we go. Its all about me, since I have very few friends irl and just lost my job, I have plenty of time to inform everyone all about me (I`m not too boring I swear)
k. background time!

I am 20, turning 21 on January 28th.
I am engaged to Tony, my boyfriend with Achondroplasia, which is a type of dwarfism. Google it for more info. We have a son, Drake, who is turning 1 on the 19th of January, he also has Achondroplasia.
I also live an active lifestlye in BDSM. I have a submissive named Josh who lives with us, and gets along with my boyfriend just fine.
Our household consists of us, 3 dogs, 9 rats and 2 45gallon fishtanks
I have many activities and hobbys to help pass the time and bring in a little extra cash that I will be sharing as well. I will be posting just about everything I do so hopefully I can entertain a few different crowds out there.

That`s it for this post, thanks for reading!
