I am moving blogs.....

I have loved being a part of the Mu.Nu's, but it is time for me to move on.... I sent an email to a blog friend discussing it all and I think this sums it all up.

Nothing to do with MT vs WordPress, but I like that I have the control over the whole blog. I can install add-ins, will have comments and trackbacks again, and did I mention the whole control thing?

CONTROL! Bwahahaha!

Check out my new home at I am still moving it and it is not customized, but you can leave comments and I can trackback to ya!!!! Weeeeeee!

Kinda Goes Along With the Whole Theme Here.

As a refresher from my bio:

Why call my blog Prochein Amy? All of my nicknames or pet names do not really apply to me now and I was sick of them. So I did a search on for amy. I found the entry for Prochein ami. Hey, that's me! Your next friend. And why does it apply? Honestly, I am way too nice. People who know me, know that if you don't get along with me and I am unable to get along with you, you don't get along with anybody!! (Well maybe someone, but not very many.)

\Pro"chein\, a. [F. prochain, fr. L. (assumed) proximanus, fr. proximus.] Next; nearest.
Prochein ami or amy(Law), the next friend. See under Next.

Quiz found here.

Newest Blog In Town

The girls received cameras from their Granny for Christmas. She came to the same conclusion as I did. The kids cameras are not worth the money. So she bought them low end digital cameras. They were given a "lecture" on care and use.

They have already taken pictures and enjoy it. So to encourage them, I revived a blog I had at Blogger to use as a Photo Blog. They even picked out fake names and approved the color scheme. I toyed with the idea of participating in Project 365. You are to take a picture each day. I think that would be to demanding on all of us, so we will aim for it, but not hold ourselves to it.

So check it out and add us to your blogroll if you are so inclined.

Linked Lyrics - "Crazy Dreams"

An idea from a bygone blogger named Dana. Almost every song I listen to for the first time is considered for this. It has been some time since I found a song that would work.

"Crazy Dreams" by Carrie Underwood

Hello you long shots
You dark horse runners
Hairbrush singers, dashboard drummers*
Hello you wild magnolias
Just waiting to bloom

There's a little bit of all that inside of me and you
Thank God even crazy dreams come true

I stood at the bottom of some walls I thought I couldn't climb
I felt like Cinderella at the ball just running out of time
So I know how it feels to be afraid
Thank God it's all gonna slip away
Hold on, hold on

Here's to you free souls, you firefly chasers
Tree climbers, porch swingers, air guitar players
Here's to you fearless dancers, shaking walls in your bedrooms

There's a lot of wonder left inside of me and you
Thank God even crazy dreams come true

Never let a bad day be enough
To go and talk you in to giving up
Sometimes everybody feels like you
Oh, feels like you, just like you

I've met some go-getters
Some difference makers
Small town heroes, and big chance takers
I've met some young hearts with something to prove
Oh, yeah

Here's to you long shots
You dark horse runners
Hairbrush singers, and dashboard drummers
Here's to you wild magnolias
Just waiting to bloom

There's a little bit of all that inside of me and you
Thank God even crazy dreams come true
Thank God even crazy dreams come true

*Can you find the "drumming"?

It's All Good

A few weeks ago, I was able to have dinner with CalTechGirl and her hubby. We met at my favorite Cali restaurant Claim Jumpers. Yum! But even better than the food was the company. It was so good!

Since CalTechGirl doesn’t like posting her picture to the public, I talked her into taking this picture with me. Don’t we look great?

Still here...

It has been busy here, so I am behind on my football posts. I still need to do a game summary of both games. I missed the pre-game summary for TCU, but I will wait and do that before next years game.

My husband has me hooked on a series of books by Terry Goodkind. I finished book three, but will not continue until I get some things done here and at home. I have a bad addiction to reading and will not put a book down until it is done. Bah!

August Happiness Challenge Day 26

Two weeks ago I was in the neighborhood of Gradual Dazzle. We met for coffee at Starbucks and had a grand ol' time. What I enjoy about blogging is that meeting in person is really not meeting for the first time. Or it doesn't feel like it. I was very comfortable with her and her kids.

Meeting one of my favorite bloggers makes me happy!!!!

A Meme from One Happy Dog

This meme is from One Happy Dog.

Amy from "Little Women". My Mom liked Jo's character better, but did not like her name.

Everything but my eating willpower.

Pralines and Cream, Any double chocolate flavor, vanilla, french vanilla, strawberry, cookies and cream. See the last question.


For steak? Red if it is a good steak. Pink if not.

Rolling through the Blogroll

I was able to visit everyone on my blogroll Thursday evening. It was good to catch up. I wanted to share with you a post that made me chuckle.

June 10, 2007

Don't Ask Me How I Know

If you keep walking through some grainny spills in Wal-Mart and wonder what was spilled..... you may discover that the bag of sugar in your cart has a tear in it. It has been slowly leaking making a path of sugar for you to walk in. And if you are lucky, you picked up the 4 pound bags instead of the 10 pound one.

Blog? What Blog?

So, the last month or so has been crazy. My wireless adapter on my home pc started acting up. I ordered a new one, but it is was delivered to my main office and for the last two weeks I am at another location. And I will be there for the next two. By the end of the day I don't feel like dragging out my work laptop to blog and all.

I have had my CPAP machine for 6 nights. I can't tell a major difference yet except my nose hurts. I chose this mask since it felt the lightest and least "engulfing". It has two openings for each nostril and rests on the lip. Kinda like a moustache. They said it would take 3 weeks to adjust to it. I will blog more on it later.

During the last few weeks we have had a Kindergarted Graduation, T-ball Team Party, soccer practice, Mom visiting from out of town, Dad coming for the weekend. They are getting ready to close on their house next week.

Youngest had a field trip (pictures to come) and I have been super busy at work.

I need a hair cut, need my nails done, and need a quiet weekend. But that will not be for awhile since Youngest has a birthday this week and my parents move up the next week.

Are you tired yet?

My Mom's Blogiversary

My Mom's blog is two years old! I can remember helping her set it up. I was so excited. And I still am. I have learned so much about her and I know I will continue to do so.

Quote Of The Day

"I saw a dead squirl last week and it made me smile and think of you."

If you keep up with Kris's blog, you know she is not a big fan of sqwuirls. She even has a whole category for her related posts. So the other day when I saw a dead sqwuirl on the road, I smiled as I thought of her. Kinda sick, but the more I think about it, the more it makes me laugh.

JACK ARMY’s "A Day in the Life” of My FOB

A chaptered story told on many blogs starts here and continues here:

Chapter Eight: Dinner

Dinner can be an adventure, at least for me. In case you didn’t notice, I didn’t get this skinny by not eating! So, I look forward to a good meal. What is unfortunate, in my opinion, is that there are a few meals that the Army serves that are just not that delicious. For example, General Tso’s Chicken seems more like Corporal Tso’s Rubber Chunks to me, so I won’t eat it. I’m not a big fan of the shimp scampy with bowtie pasta… leaves an aftertaste that lasts and lasts.

Having said that, there are a couple of meals that I look forward to, such as roast beef or roast chicken, both excellent dishes. We also have plenty of extries as well. You know, stuff like chips, power bars, trail mix and jerky treats. There are plenty of sodas, water, milk and juices as well. Some days, we are a little skimpy on something if it has run out or if we didn’t get enough on the last CLP (pronounced “clip” – Combat Logistics Patrol). But that’s not that big a deal since there’s plenty of other stuff to go around.

Then there’s all the stuff guys get in care packages. We have a table set up in the Dining Facility for stuff that guys don’t want or was sent to share. When we first set up the table, we had to chase off the local interpreters because they went hog wild over that stuff and the Soldiers weren’t getting much. As soon as they realized that there was enough to go around and there was a steady supply, they settled down.

One of the best things about dinner, though, is the company. It is nice to sit down, eat leisurely, and laugh and joke with the guys. Sometimes, it’s a bitch session and we get all whiny about something or other, but mostly it’s jokes and laughter, guys telling war stories about their last deployment or things done in years past.

I don’t tell many stories, though, especially on baked chicken night.

Not even packing

Xavier has tagged me for a meme. I feel special since I am the only one tagged not packing a gun!

The meme is to share five off the wall, strange, unusual or just little-known facts about yourself. My 100 things about me probably covered the most obvious, so I will have to think hard for 5 more*.

1. I will get my Concealed Handgun License before I die. The main reason I read Xavier's blog is to learn about guns, so that when I do, I will have some knowledge. Plus, maybe I will be able to solicit some advice when I go to buy my first gun.

2. I know how to crochet. My Mom taught me over the 4th of July weekend last year. I have made several hats, purses, and one cute little creature. I am currently working on a sweater. I can not believe how much I enjoy it. After buying a book on stiches, I can take a basic pattern and do it anyway I want. I like that once I get the basic pattern down, I am not limited to just that.

3. I like watching Hannah Montana. GAH!

4. Do you remember the episode when Jerry Sienfeld dated a woman who had "man hands"? Well, I have man wrists. My wrists look horrible with watches on. Braclets are OK, but still don't look the greatest to me.

5. I am struggling on this last one, so I am going to pull from my last post. With blogging, you don't get to hear people. The tone in their voice, their accents, phases they use. And you can't hear their laughing. And that is one thing I do and do well. I laugh at most anything. I laugh when I am happy. I laugh when I am uncomfortable. I laugh.

Now for the tagging. I am going to pick newbies to my blogroll except for my Mom! And three is enough.

Online Shopping Tips Continued

Sissy from "And What Next" has posted five tips for online shopping. I would like to add some of my own to that list....

Tip 6: Visit The Bargainist. They post current sales, coupons, freebies. I have been visiting this site for about two weeks and they have done well. That is how I found out about this. Another similiar site is

Tip 7: Shop through It is like getting reward points on your credit card without the credit card. You shop for stuff and if you buy something through the link you earn points that can be used later. And it is not for lame retailers. They work with Target, CompUSA, HomeDepot, Dell, Apple and many more. I don't buy stuff just because I can through YUB, but if I was planning on spending the money anyway, might as well get some back.

Tip 8: Woot and Shnoop! These are sites that are pretty close in concept. They both put items up for sale for limited times and good prices. Even if you never buy anything, the decriptions from are funny. And Shnoop has good videos.

Tip 9: is offering more products from other retailers. This brings you a better selection and lower prices. Can't beat that!!!!

Tip 10: If you are looking to buy something you know little or nothing about, visit You can find reviews for products from normal people. You may not be able to find them on the exact model, but you can look for similiar models to get a good idea.

Tip 10: Keep your eye on the shipping costs. This is where some retailers and e-bayers get you. Even with the cheaper prices it could still cost you more than what you can buy it for at your local store. Even if gas prices are high....

Tip 12: E-mail me with what you are looking for. I love to hunt down for the best deal. Really!!!

Where do you want to eat?

Have you ever noticed when it comes time to figure out where to go to eat, no one really knows what they want? But when someone suggests something, they know they don't want it. But when you ask them what they do want, they still don't know? I think it is partly because no one wants to be responsible for picking if someone doesn't like it. Or they don't want their choice to be shot down.

That is how I can be about politics. Mostly, I can't flat out tell you what I believe in the political arena. But if someone brings stuff up, then I can tell them I don't want that. "Then what do you suggest?" No idea. Well, maybe no idea that I want responsibility for. And what if you don't like my idea or beliefs? What if you shoot it down? I might cry!

With the blogosphere, that has changed somewhat. Because I read more about politics, not just what is in the media, I get a different view point. More often than not, I get both sides. I can take what I read and pick out of it what I agree with and what I don't. And with that I build my beliefs and form my opinions.

Way Cool!

I have put several of my designs on and slowly my items have sold. Not enough to get rich, but enough to give some to charity and splurge on myself.

Periodically Cafepress will send an email out highlighting themed items. This week they sent out an email for top selling football related items. One of my designs (which I admit I scammed somewhat) did not make it on the main email, but on the main page you go to from the link. It is the last one on the right. Way cool, huh?

Happiness Challenge Catchup

19th - I am happy the girls were good this week so that we could go out to eat.

20th - I am happy because I still love my bed.

21st - My 3 year blog anniversary was August 17th. I started out just blogging about Texas Football, but ended up blogging about much more. Initially my blog was totally my space and I mentioned family very little. Over time, I think I have turned into a "Mommy Blogger". But I love this hobby and what I have learned helping others design their blogs.

22nd - I am happy because I have a good life.

23rd - I am happy because peanut butter tastes very good.

24th - I am happy because Texas's first game is only 9 days away.

Happiness Challenge Day 6

Today I am happy since my anti-MIL is helping me towards the path of domestication. She bought me a sewing machine for Christmas. Today she showed me how to hem some jeans that were to long. Next I will make pillows for the girls room and then whatever else comes to mind.

August 05, 2006

Happiness Challenge Day 5

I am happy that I don't have same drama in my life as certain TV shows.

August 04, 2006

Happiness Challenge Day 4

It pays off to take interest in people. About a month ago I was talking with a chic from another department. I discovered that she lives about a mile from me. Knowing my husband would be starting a new job in Fort Worth in a few weeks, I asked if she wanted to carpool. (No more carpooling with him.) Of course she said yes. We would both love so save money since it is about an hour drive and approximately 40 miles one way. I am so happy to have a new carpool buddy. And someone to talk to. Wooo hoooo!

August 02, 2006

Happiness Challenge Day 2

I am not sure how it got started but when I put my youngest to bed we have a new kissing sequence. I kiss each cheek then her lips. Then she kisses each of my cheeks and then my lips. Then we kiss each others cheeks at the same time (each side) and then on the lips. Oldest had heard us, so now she gets the same sequence. Try it one time and see if you can do it without giggling or smiling. I haven't yet. And that makes me happy.

August 01, 2006

Tagged by CalTechGirl

I have been tagged for the other 5's meme by CalTechGirl. So here goes.....

5 things in my fridge....
- Cold cans of Extra Hot Rotel and various spicy sauces for the hubby. He eats rotel like salsa.
- Velvetta and rotel screaming out my name. My resistance will go down this evening, I am sure.
- Lemons for Oldest, she eats them like candy.
- Maple Syrup from the anti-In-Law's trip last fall.
- A mango to see if the girls like it. (They did, but I wish I had read this before I cut it up.)

5 things in my closet...
- 35% burnt orange clothing
- Christmas Decorations
- As you walk into the closet on the right is a wall space before the shelves start. It tended to collect junk, so I hung up two paintings. One of the view out my Grandparent's place in Arkansas. It is a snow scene with a blue tractor. Below that is a painting of my Dad holding me as a baby. Both were painted by my Aunt. I don't want to cover the pictures so I put stuff other places.
- Wrapping paper including the secret paper that only Santa Claus uses.
- A black cowboy hat that I wish my husband would wear more. (Hubba hubba)

5 items in my car....
I don't really have a car, WE have family cars.....
- Car seats that make the 4 door car really like a two seater
- A CD collection from Veggie Tales, Sam Cooke, Keith Urban, Queen, Meatloaf, Electric Light Orcestra and a few more.....
- A wide view mirror to see in the back seat. I really need one for both cars.
- Old parking tags for the Longhorn football games.
- A green stress ball (#2) that my husband uses when he drives. Heaven forbid he loses it!!!!

5 items in my purse....
- My makup since I put it on during the drive to work. Not when I am driving silly! My husband drives since we carpool.
- My digital camera
- I am testing out a bigger bag so I have all my paperwork, keys, change in a bank zip up bag. I usually carry a VERY small purse, but I found a burnt orange bag that is to die for!
- A mini bag with hair pick, mirror, lib balm, and fingernail clippers.
- A uncharged bluetooth headset for my blackberry. I never remember to keep it charged. Plus I feel like a geek wearing it. It is like the modern day pocket protector.

I am going to tag 5 people now and spread the silliness....

PrimoDonna (but I could probably do this one for her.....)

Handwriting Meme

I love looking at handwriting. In High School I read books about handwriting analysis. I may post on that in the future, but this post is on a meme created by Logtar. I found his idea on Big Orange Michael's blog.

He uses a panagram and asks us to write it and post it. Here is mine....


Let me know if you post one....

Quiz Around the Blogosphere

I decided to take a quiz since some of my favorite bloggers had. I thought I might get similiar results to CalTech Girl, Bou, and VW since I tend to take lead roles in job and other things. Scanning through their results and mine, it seem you have to be adventerous and willing to try new things to be a leader. Hmmm...

I ended up with.....

I can see that. I love telling people they are doing great. It also mentioned that I can be direct. People quickly learn that I tell it like it is. Mostly tactfully.

I noticed an interesting thing between the four of us. We all were very high in Confidence, Trust in Others, Earthy/Imagnative, and Agency. I cut and pasted the definition of these term below:

How confident you are about expressing your opinions and accomplishing things.

Trust in Others
The general faith you have in other people; how much you think people are good at heart.

Your prefererence for concrete or abstract things. Low means you prefer abstract, theoretical things. High means you prefer detail-oriented, practical things.

How much you believe you determine your own outcomes. High means you believe that you have control over your life. Low means you believe that other factors—such as chance, fate, and powerful others—influence your life.

I thought that was interesting, mostly on the Agency. I was not surprised with all the rest of them since it comes across in their blogging. But Agency? I don't think that is something easily conveyed in blogging. Unless you really think about what they mean by agency. Why would they use that term? Agency defined in the dictionary is not a direct correlation, but when you put both definitions together, it makes sense. I can see how Bou, VW, and CalTechGirl have affected their own outcomes. Is this a pattern of cool blogger chics?

Melinama posted about Penelope Illustrations's Best Advice Project. Her favorite is the last one on her post here. It is my favorite also. The funniest one is here. It would be well worth your time to look at all of them. They are full of good advice, humor, and great artwork and design.

Pot Roast Recipe Modified

This week's Carnival of Recipes is here. Below is my recipe for next week.

This recipe meets my requirements for easy and NO measureing. You can find it on several different websites and I don't know where I originally found it.

Soda/Cola/Pop* Crock Pot Roast (*whatever you call it!)

1 can a soda/cola/pop
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 package of onion soup mix

You cook it low 8 hours, high 4 - 6 hours. Voila! Yum!

The first time I tried with my "own" onion soup mix with seasoning I had on hand. Today I tried it with Campbell's French Onion Soup instead of the cream of mushroom and it was also yummy! I seasoned it with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

February 13, 2006

Cool thing coming....

Do you know how hard it is for me to keep a secret? I have only told 2 people about my current project. Luckily we are very close to telling it all!!!

Carnival of the Recipes - Chocolate

I bring you to the 77th Carnival of the Recipes. Chocolate is the theme this week and some threw in non-chocolate recipes. "Scientists reported preliminary evidence recently that cocoa and other chocolates may keep high blood pressure down, your blood flowing and your heart healthy." With that in mind, I am grouping the recipies by dose!

Single Dose

Milky Way Cake: I wonder if you can use a different kind of candy bar?

Riverbottom Pie: Currently unclassified by dose since the recipe is not up yet.

Double Dose

Double Chocolate Chewies - This is a good one since it has minimal measuring. You only need 1 measuring cup and the rest is dumped in if you buy it in the right package.

Dipped in Chocolate: I am putting this in the double section, but it could easily go triple....

Very Fat Fudge Cake: Double chocolate and double ways to make it. (This is the 6th chocolate recipe I have posted and my mouth is still watering.)

No Measure Fudge: Here is mine. It meets my no measure requirement and has double chololate! Yum!

Mandarin Orange Cake: Invented by a 12 year old.

Triple Dose

Extreme Chocolate Brownies/Godiva Chocolate Martini/Chocolate Swimsuit: Wow, Wow, and Wow!!!

Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake: Chocolate cookie crumbs, cocoa powder, and more cocoa powder.

Quad Dose

Chocolate Almond Chewies: Woooo weeeee!!! FOUR kinds of chocolate!!!

Triple-choc cookies: To be consistant with my counting of chocolate, this one has 4 versions of chocolate. Cocoa Power counts in my book.

Un-chocolate Recipes

Bow Down Before The Cheese That Cannot Die! - This one is so bad it is good.

Soup is good food - zuppa toscana Homemade version of a good soup at Olive Garden.

Super Bowl Chili Another minimal measuring one!!

Ham and Bean Soup for Morons: She gives us measurements, but I bet I could get away with just guesstimating!

Cajun Sausage and Gravy: Another minimal measuring recipe. I have hit the jackpot! And it is easy to make! Score again!

Pumkin Bread Pudding: This recipe calls for Turbinado sugar. Steamed sugar!!!

Mama's Stuffed Pizza Sandwich and Bread Strata: Two recipes that use frenchbread with a nice graphic to help you out.

Griilled Chicken Proscuitto: Almost no "offical" measuring.

Drive-by "Recipe": Enhance your coffee with this one.

Chicken Stuffed with Potatoes and Olives: Easy and it has capers. Love me some capers.

Spaghetti Tricolore: Check out his suggestion for whole wheat pasta. Hope I can get some around here.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich: I never thought of that! But grilled sounds great!

Danish Bacon: This sounds good and Martin is suggesting a Danish theme for the Carnival of the Recipes. Maybe he could host it!

Spicey Mussells: Punctilious only uses two cloves of garlic. Is that enough? And can he explain why you throw out the closed mussells?

Crockpost Pork Roast: Easy and again - no measuring!!!!


Physics Geek is on the schedule for next week as tentative. Send your recipes in by noon next Saturday to recipe(dot)carnival(at)

Thanks for the opportunity to host....

No Measure Fudge

(note: scroll to the bottom to bypass my ramblings, if is so pleases you!)

8:47 pm: Here is my recipe for the Carnival. I love making things that require little to no measuring. This one fits the bill and has chocolate. (Wait, you have never tried this one! How can you post it if you never tried it?)

8:48 pm: I gathered the ingredients. One 12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and a tub of chocolate frosting. Dumped them in a bowl. No stirring needed.

8:50 pm: Put the bowl of stuff in the microwave. Set for 3 minutes. Check it out after 2 minutes. Pulled it out since the sides were bubbling. Stirred it until the rest of the chocolate was melted. Poured it into a 8X8 baking dish. Put in freezer. Set time for 10 minutes.

8:55 pm: Typed up what I just did. Piddled with some other things. 3 minutes left.

9ish pm: Timer goes off. Fudge not set, 10 more minutes in the freezer.

9:10ish pm: Still not set. I moved it to another freezer and it set better. Other than being kinda hard to cut nice neat squares, it is yummy! And I got a nod and a "pretty good" from the hubby.

Next Morning: It is easier to cut when it is room temprature.

So here is the recipe without ramblings:

Easy Fudge

1 - 12 oz package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tub of chocolate frosting

Dump in bowl and microwave 2 - 3 minutes. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Pour into an 8X8 dish. Put in freezer 10-30 minutes until set. If you can make it, cut after it is room temprature.

The varieties from this recipe are many. Add nuts. Use white chocolate or peanut butter chips. Or a different flavor of frosting.

Deadline for your chocolate recipe is noon on Saturday. More info here.

Some of his posts are over my head, but I have learned from his blog and enjoy reading about his favorite subject matter. So I will be voting for his blog! Which leads me to.....

Carnival of the Recipes

I used to participate in the Carnival of the Recipes on a regular basis until I ran out of recipes. And then I got lazy about linking. Since I will be hosting in February, I better get back to it.

This week the carnival is hosted at "The Common Room" and I found a recipe that I want to try. It has quite a few of my favorite things in it....

Next week they are asking for tea or coffee recipes. The deadline for recipe submissions is Noon (Central Time) on Saturday. Send the link to your post or if you don't have a blog, just email the recipe to recipe-dot-carnival-at-neversendspam-gmail-dot-c0m. I don't have any tea or coffee recipes tucked away, but the following week's theme is "Potluck". That will be easy!!!

It's Blogcess #30

Again brought to you the one and only meme endorsed by Prochein Amy. One of the reasons I like it is no tagging...just linky love!!! Here we go, Blogcess #30!

Over the past week I've noticed more and more people have their houses decorated for Christmas. I love to decorate – - this week's "It's Blogcess" is about decorating for the holidays.

1) Do you agree with the phrase – - The more lights the better?


2) If you answered yes, why? If you answered no, why?

I like simple and easy. Leaning more towards the easy!

3) When did you put up your Christmas tree?

We put our tree up the 2nd Saturday in December. We have no set date, just as our schedule and my anti-Father In Law permits since we need his truck to pick up the tree.

4) The final touch to any Christmas tree is the topper – - What do you put on the top of your tree?

We have a star that is just like one my husband had growing up. He found one two years ago on eBay and mostly paid for the sentimental value.

5) Time to spread some "Blogcess" linky love. Here are a few blogs full of holiday cheer:

It's Blogcess #29 - Uh, where is everyone?

Not many fans this week of Uptown Girl's topic for Blogcess. But since this is the one and only meme endorsed by this blog, I'm game. But I can certainly understand the lack of participation. As I read over the questions, I realize that I really don't know how I feel about the death penalty. I am split on the whole thing. I know people should be accountable for what they do, but they should also be forgiven. So with this week's meme, I am going to put my logic hat on and try to keep my emotions out of my answers.


Over the past week or so there has been so much in the news about Stanley "Tookie" Williams and whether he should be executed or not. We now know he was executed last night and it brought up some interesting questions. (at least I think it did) This week's "It's Blogcess" is about your opinion on executions.

1) Was justice served by executing Stanley "Tookie" Williams? Yes.

2) Why or why not? Your actions have repercussions. People have to be held accountable for what they do.

3) What message do you think his execution sends to the masses? It is wrong to kill someone and you will be punished.

4) Do you support capital punishment across the board or just in specific cases? Explain. I don't know enough about capital punishment to answer this question. The system is not perfect and as long as humans are invovled there will be mistakes and wrong doings. But thinking of other ways it could work, we have it pretty good. We get a trial, our laws are general applied to all, and our fates are not decided by one ruler, dictator, or regime.

5) Do you think it should take years to execute an inmate on death row? I think this is a good compromise. It gives plenty of time to make sure they are guilty, thus placating the liberal leaners. Yet the end result is the same.

6) If you could change the laws surrounding prisoner executions – - what would it or they be? I have little clue when it comes to this also.

7) Time to spread some "Blogcess" links. Here are a few of my favorite political blogs:

Right Rainbow
Day by Day
The Common Virtue

Blogcess 28

Blogcess is the one and only meme endorsed by Prochein Amy! This week she pulls from one of my favorite shows, Inside the Actor's Studio. And she takes my favorite part and makes it a meme.

Check out her post here. If you decide to participate, link back to her.


I really like the show "Inside the Actors Studio". James Lipton does great interviews and I enjoy most all of his guests. One part of the show I enjoy most is the last portion where he always asks the same ten questions – - I thought it would be fun to ask you those same ten questions for "It's Blogcess" – - Here we go!

1. What is your favorite word? – - Love

2. What is your least favorite word? – - bastard

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? – - Music (Just like Uptown Girl)

4. What turns you off? – - Unfairness

5. What is your favorite curse word? – - Shit

6. What sound or noise do you love? – - Listening to my husband talk. It is even better when it is from another room. I can't understand what he is saying, but I can hear the deep tones.

7. What sound or noise do you hate? – - When my husband reconciles our accounts in Quicken, it makes a "cha-ching" noise when he enters a new entry or reconciles it. When I heard that noice, it meant that bad news may be coming. Even though that is not the case now, the noise still makes me cringe.

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? – - If I had a singing voice, singer.

9. What profession would you not like to do? – - Road Kill Picker Upper

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? – - HELLLLLLLOO!!!!! (just like I like to say it!)

11) It's time to spread some "It's Blogcess" linky love?

Feedback Please

For the past month or so, I tried to get a side business going. I did not put much into it and things out of my control helped it fizzle out. I am looking to make just a few extra dollars to fund getting my nails done on a regular basis and paying for Weight Watcher meetings.

And I keep coming back to blog design. I am working on someone's site now who mentioned I should make it a business. Since I can't do it full time and would find it somewhat difficult to deal with alot of volume and hard deadlines, I was thinking of going with the "cheap pricing but you get it when it is done" business model. Not that it would take 3 months to get a design done, but if something comes up with my family and day job, it will come first.

My pricing would be something like this:

$ 25: Basic Blog: Includes graphics, section headers, basic template customization
$ 15: Graphics only: Headers and section headers
$ 10: Header Only
I would offer additional services like install plugins, major cutomization, or anything special at rates similiar to above depending on the task.

Looking at other blogs designers, their services range from $50 to $200. I also don't think I am at the level to charge those prices. Not yet! But my target is the casual blogger who just wants a nice blog that is personal.

What do you think? Would you consider it cheap? To those I have worked on before, would you have paid the prices above or just dealt with the blog you had? Any feedback would be appreciated!

Note to those bloggers I am currently helping, don't worry, I won't ask for money. Just mulling it over.

Blogcess 26

Uptown Girl's meme has been on haitus since she no longer has high speed internet. But she has decided to bring it back occasionally. I am excited since I always liked her meme's. And that is saying alot since I don't like meme's. So I bring you the one and only meme endorsed by Prochein Amy!


It has been a long time since I posted an "It's Blogcess" and there have been a few of you who have asked me if I'd start them up again. I'm not sure that I'll be posting them every week, in fact I can say I won't – - instead I'll post them now and then.

So without further ado I present "It's Blogcess – 26" – - Let's make it an easy one to get back into the groove of things.

1) Do you use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning?


2) What time do you set it for?

4:32 am

3) Do you hit the snooze button? If so how many times?

Yes. Only once. I have set the time to allow me one hit. Unless I have something extra to do that morning.

4) Have you ever abused an alarm clock?

No, but I gave one away. Does that count?

5) It's "time" to spread some "It's Blogcess" linky love?

Speedy-Mini Bloggy Meetup

With planning, yesterday Sissy drove from Atlanta, GA to Fort Worth on her way to Arizona. She called when she was in Dallas thinking she was real close, but she had to go to Fort Worth. So if she tells you she drives fast and average 80 mph, believe her!

Since it was way past the girls dinner time we went on to the restaurant and Sissy arrived later. I kept watching the door, thinking of her post about her short haircut. So I am looking for a chic with blondish short - Hallie Berry like hair. You know like a boy. Like she said. If she had not called as she was coming in the door, it probably would have taken me awhile to figure out it was her. But I just have to say.....

Sissy! PUUUUULEASE!!! You do not look like a boy! And your hair is nothing close to a guy cut. It looks good!!! I think it is even longer than mine.

It all worked out since the restaurant brings your food out fast and it gave us more time to visit. And to add to the pot, my Mom and Dad had flown in from their vacation and were able to eat with us. Sissy got to meet two bloggers!

This may sound funny, but Sissy matches the aura that comes from her blog. She is even more funny, nice, and cool in person. And to me it felt like we were old friends, and I guess you could say that we are since we have been reading each others blogs for awhile. My Mom was asking Sissy questions and I was able to explain some things from what I had read in the past. I am glad that Sissy understands this whole blogging friendship thing, cause I could see it freaking someone out. She showed the girls a picture of Kiki and said she would bring her the next time she visits. Youngest even went out of her way to give Sissy a hug. It was so cute!!!!

Sissy had to get some studing done and the girls needed to get to bed. I hope the next time we get together we have more time to visit.

Thanks, Sissy, for going out of your way and making time to visit!

August Happiness Challenge

Only a few days left. This happiness post is mostly for me, but you may get a giggle out of his....

Happiness is.... uh... hubba hubba!

New Home

When we bought our house, we still had a month left on our rent house. So we had more time to move everything while living in the new place. We would go back to the old place to get stuff and move it on over. This is what I am doing now.

My new home is at So for awhile there will be boxes around here and links back to the old blog. Eventually I will move all in, but it is nice to have the luxury of moving slow...

About Me!

What? Amy, chic, wife of a University of Texas football fanatic and the smartest man on earth, mother of two beautiful girls, worker of the Computer Support industry, lover of music, reading, and people. Not a nerd, but I was in a former life.

Where? I grew up an Army Brat. Born in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, then to Fort Hood, TX, on to Frankfurt, Germany, Fort Sill, Oklahoma, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, and then back to Fort Hood, TX. Moved to Fort Worth to further my education. (Not really, it was purely love.) I have lived the longest in my current house - 6 years.

When? 33 years and counting.

Why? Blogging is cool. I love sharing with people. I also want to be able to read my blog years from now and see how I have changed. And to document the Texas Football games I attend.

Why call my blog Prochein Amy? All of my nicknames or pet names do not really apply to me now and I was sick of them. So I did a search on for amy. I found the entry for Prochein ami. Hey, that's me! Your next friend. And why does it apply? Honestly, I am way too nice. People who know me, know that if you don't get along with me and I am unable to get along with you, you don't get along with anybody!! (Well maybe someone, but not very many.)

\Pro"chein\, a. [F. prochain, fr. L. (assumed) proximanus, fr. proximus.] Next; nearest.
Prochein ami or amy(Law), the next friend. See under Next.

How do I blog? By typing. (OK, smarty answer, but I did not know what else to say.)

Update (5/05): I have given my Mom the ability to post, so every once in awhile you will see one from her (Donna). She now has her own blog at

In the extended entry is 100 Things About Me!

Continue reading "About Me!" »


I have mucho fun helping people with their blogs, designing headers, and anything else they need help with. Many people have asked for a button to put on their site, but I was unsure about it. Part of me is embarassed by it. It seems like I would be bragging to much or seem like I am wanting attention. And maybe so, I do like to hear the nice things people say about the stuff I do. So I will go with it.

I was not really crazy about just putting my Blog name. Who would really know why the button was there? Then the other day I was "Complemented". The Complementer offers buttons for your website stating "I have been complemented." So I spun off of that with collaborate. It means "To work together, especially in a joint intellectual effort. " And that is what I do. Not totally doing the site, but augmenting it.

So if I have helped with your blog and you want to give me credit, you can use the button below and link to this post.

If you have a blog that you want help with, email me. I would love to put together a header and section headers if you like. I now have WordPress and MovableType under my belt, so if you want site design help, let me know. I don't want to turn this into a business, since it takes away the fun. But if I ever do, you will be helping me with my "portfolio".

Listed below are blogs that I have helped with.
