C Tann-Starr's Outside Blog


Wordy C Plays 10 Questions...

Wordy C answers her e-mail:

1. Question: Why are my eyes closed more often than not on the video? Answer: I still have a sensitivity to light (LOL). Squinting or peeking through lashes works well for me when I am not sleeping away the day. If you made it to the end of this post you'd know why. ;-)

2. Question: It says video-blog. What does that mean? Answer: My trippy, squinty a$$ would rather do a few minutes of digital film with my brick and mortars than constantly type about my day (and risk a migraine - LOL).

3. Specific Question: When are you going back into the office? Specific Answer: End of the month... maybe...

4. Specific Question: When are you going to return my calls? Specific Answer: End of the month... maybe...

5. Question: Are you on strike? Answer: Hmm... Good question... I am concussed. I am cranky and concussed. I am barely in social media. I am barely in anything except spending time with the people designated to babysit me because I can not be left alone and have to be watched (LMAO). When you bang your head enough to crack your noggin people have to watch you for a list of symptoms and you can't watch yourself because if you pass out who will call for help? Being an enterprising chicka, I selected really talented friends to watch me so I wont be bored (ROTFL). Am I putting them to work? Hell yeah! They're talented! Why waste their genius when I can have fun stuff to blog about while counting the days to futon freedom (LOL). I do a couple of hours of a handful of whatever things, then I sleep away the day. Why did I bold that? Because it is a significant statement. This means if you are not family, one of my bay-bays or a close personal friend, don't bother me 'cause I aint in control of the phone and parts of my routine. Ergo, I will not be talking to you. I'm only perky for a couple of hours a day, then I start yawning, then I go to sleep. That is my concussed-and-being-fussed-over routine. Psssst... I don't have my Sprint AirCard, ergo no sneaking around to man an outside office. WIFI is an option but I don't want to get yelled at. I have not taken on new clients. I am not taking on new clients. I have given some of my old clients away as referrals. The rest are patiently waiting for me to get better and go back to my marathon driving habits. I have people randomly answering my phone, reading my e-mail and randomly checking mail and messages so if you dis them because they are not me, are not Realtors, did not get back to you the way you wanted or expected and/or do not understand your cryptic bullshit messages I am not going to answer you. My job is to relax and get better, not stress and pop a blood vessel. I doodle and make music when I'm not eating, drinking and sleeping. When hubby and the kids fall asleep I BLOG (ROTFLMAO). ;-)

6. Question: Rumor has it you are prego. Is this true? Answer: I don't know. I haven't brought the prego test yet. We're too busy freaking out that I throw up every day (LOL). I asked hubby to get me one. He told me to go get it myself. We stood there looking stupid then cracked up laughing because the idea of another little minion is funny and frightening at the same time. Think about it. What if this kid turns out to be "normal?" We haven't done normal in years (LMAO). Are we freaking out without the help of my meds? Um... er... yeah, you betcha (LOL). ;-)

7. Specific Question: If you are prego, are you going to keep it? Specific Answer: I would die to save any child of mine. Yeah. Abso-freaking-lutely. So what if I am 44. The fact that you would ask amazes me... Have you missed the fact that I am crazy about kids? I am, you know. Short people amuse me. You can learn a lot from little minions if you pay attention. Kids are cool that way. I'm having my second childhood right now (LOL). :-)

8. Question: Are you going to expand upon and explain Stephen, the Blur Minion's latest sacrifice of the electronics? Answer: Abso-freaking-lutely. I just laugh a lot when I try to start because our circuitry is always at his mercy. Little Man does a lot with thos electronic puppies. Three year olds can be amazing (LOL). :-)

9. Question: When are you going to post more video? Answer: Can post a few today if you'd like. We gave a few friends a couple of shout outs and cracked wise about stuff the brick and mortars know about during playtime in Joey's guest room. I like doing sleep overs but we cant because I gotta start going home before sundown when I visit during my recreational hours. Sick people on meds house-rule. Can't stay out all day. Only get a few hours. Gotta rest. :-)

10. Question: Got more film of Alicia? Answer: Yup. Will post after my nap. I have two to upload from today. I screwed up 5 podcast tracks (LMAO). If you can't podcast on meds you'd better not drive (LOL).

Oooooo. 9PM. Time to put the shorties to bed. I hope they go to sleep before I do (LOL). If Mikey and I fall alseep first we usually wake up to a wee disaster with Stephen's fingerprints all over the miniature crime scene. I am soooo not looking forward to another toilet paper incident. My boy gives a whole new meaning to a couple of inappropriate phrases the cartoons in my head are volunteering for this blog post (LOL). I may have to take the laptop to bed. I've a lot more e-mail to answer. I also have to go find my darts and a phonebook. Yes, it's true, I am very easily amused. Will let you know if I am prego next week. I have to give you time to speculate and wonder (LMAO).  ;-)

Hi Candyland! Whatcha doing? I'm ignoring my kids who wont stay in the bed and are driving me nuts while poor Mikey is passed out across the futon (LOL).

May Happy Thanksgiving permeate your feathers this week. Cheers and enjoy a happy time this week

Claude, Stephen just took off his pull up so he could wiz urine on my living room rug. If you guys knew how many rugs we rolled up and threw away since that kid came home from the hosp as a newbie you'd change professions (LOL). May God bless you and your family this Thanksgiving and every day of your life. ;-)

Being preggers would be lovely! :o)

Ann, think of the on-line sonograms we could share (LOL). OMG - hormone alert!!! Hahahahahaaaaa! Wonder what my first rant will be? Running out of Hagen Daz probably (LOL). ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

any idea how this might have happened, C?  do we know who the mother is?  (I sense a hijacking oncoming)

Let us know ASAP about the new minion situation.

Where have I been?  I guess I haven't heard of your unfortunate accident,  Sorry to hear about it.  If I were housebound in MY home, I'd get a little slap happy too!  :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Who the mother is? ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alan, I love you. Seriously... This is going to cause a field day when my friends read this (LMAO). ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

Richard, I keep thinking it's all in the cracked noggin and not the middle aged ovaries (LOL). Will let you guys know about the possibility of a new shortie entering the family. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

Lina, I went out on Sunday and now poor Mikey has to deal with me escaping a couple of hours a day (LOL). :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

Hey kiddo - I am 57 with a 15 year old - yes there are days when I am ready to scream - but I think that is because I sell real estate - My daughter is clearly going to be my best buddy when she grows up - and right now she is a wonderful human being and a great daughter who I am blessed to be around. If you are pregnant - CONGRATULATIONS - the last baby is very special indeed! Lots of  hugs

C - Hope you have a speedy recovery and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Posted by Sharon Richards (Kirsten Realty Tampa Florida) almost 11 years ago

Lise the suspense is driving my friends crazy (LOL). I have no idea. Will find out in a couple of days. I like the idea that I will have two teenagers in ten years. They can take over the possible third child. If we are having another shortie I hope it's a girl. Mikey always wanted a girl. As for me I will take whatever I can get (LOL). ;-)

Thank you Sharon. My brick and mortars have been amusing me to no end. Trippy A$$ is turning into a term of endearment (LOL). I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

My Mother in Law was 43 when she had what we refer to affectionately as her little mistake as a joke. The mistake was my wife, who was unexpected, but very loved just the same. Take care of your noggin and it will be interesting to hear how the rest of this plays out.

Posted by JL Boney, III, Columbia, SC Real Estate (Coldwell Banker) almost 11 years ago

Hi, Carolyn I changed agencies about 10 days ago and have been drowning in paperwork ever since so have not had time to comment on posts, for the most part. I stopped by to catch up on what's going on in your life...HOLY MOLY! You're busy even when you aren't!

Sorry to hear about your fall and hope you're feeling better. As for the rest of it...I'll be waiting for the update! Happy Thanksgiving.

Posted by Leslie Helm, Real Estate For Trail Riders (Tennessee Recreational Properties) almost 11 years ago

So, how long do we have to wait to find out? Hell, I'LL go buy the prego thing.

OMG, we'll have to have a virtual baby shower - you can register and we can purchase online and skip all those stupid little games.

BTW, I'm 51 and have never had children. I have nieces and Goddaughters galore and that works well for me. Spoil them, sugar them up, send home. No diapers, no tantrums, and I bet they'll still love me enough to visit me in the nursing home!

Posted by Lori Cain, Midtown Tulsa Real Estate Top Producer (eXp Realty) almost 11 years ago

"Specific Question: If you are prego, are you going to keep it?"  OMG Someone actually asked that???

On a different note, I did give my friend a hard time for keeping all of her quads but that was different. I felt she could give me at least one. I mean seriously, she was having four and all of them were girls. AND she already had another daughter also. So I don't think I was being too out of line by asking her to give me juuussstttt one...!!! Selfish b**ch...she'll be BEGGING me to take them ALL when they are teenagers!!

Keep us posted!!!!  :)

JL, Stephen was a shocker. We had no idea at the time because I wasn't sick in the beginning, just getting chubby. I blew a semester of college because he decided to come early during final week (LOL). Talk about drama? I almost died from the emergency C section. My girlfriend is my doc and she freaked out about it for three days. Noah had just got back into school and I may have had my sex life back for approximately two whole weeks before I got knocked up with the Minion Blur (ROTFL). I remember cursing my hubby out for not wearing a condom. He claims he got married so he wouldn't have to wear them (LOL). If I am preggo I know the exact day this little wonder of joy was created. Will I be kicking his virtual a$$ if the test is positive? Yeah... Might kick it in real life too (ROTFLMAO). Why? We had the condom conversation but got distracted teasing each other (LOL). Takes two so I aint really mad at him. Just nervous because I aint no spring chicken. ;-)

Hi Leslie! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well. Kudos and congrats on your new venture. Wishing you the very best with your new firm. Looking forward to hearing all about it. :-)

Lori, hint taken, will go out and buy the kit. I shall take a picture of it and blog the friggin' results (LOL). Mikey just gave me forty dollars to go get all my girlie needs stuff from the pharm. Alicia and I are going to have a bit of fun with ths one (LOL). Wait until Cindy and Sana get in on the drum roll. My brick and mortars are waiting with baited breath... ;-)

Dawn, several people asked me and were quite serious about lecturing me on their views. My pro life Jewish and Christian friends were thrilled but my "heathen" friends were not. They all were there for the 5 miscarriages before we had Noah. They were all there for the death of our gorgeous son Nathan and the funeral that tore us all up. Risking death to bring another child into the world is freaking them out. They would rather have me supposedly safe and sound, adopting more shorties. Got news for you. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow so why kill a kid over a maybe? I am not into abortion. We all have the right to choose. I choose life. Life begins at conception. Babies need parents who will love and protect them whether they are the size of a pin prick or six feet tall.

I was cracking up about you and your girlfriend. I had a shot at adopting a kid one of my friends didn't want to have. I begged. I pleaded. We cried together and grieved together because it was not a light decision to make. We offered to pay for every bill to save this kid and have a baby in our lives. She could not do it in the end and I respect that. I think about that lost opportunity all the time and wonder what it would have been like to have another pookie in the little minion line up. She's a beatiful friend and it would have been a beautiful babe... 

I don't know if I am preggo but I have to admit I'm liking the idea (LOL). ;-)




Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

OMG - I go away for a few days and I come back to read you may be preggers?????  What a trip!  (giggle) 

Waiting to hear the news with baited breath . . .

How exciting!

Sandy, we're giggling over the possibility. ;-)
