It's time again for Flashback Fridays hosted by Scary Mommy.

As I was trying to come up with my blog name, my friend (the pusher) asked me what adjectives I thought described me. The only thing that came to my mind was neurotic. I laughed. Then she laughed.........but there was no disagreement from her. So began the quest to confirm that I am neurotic - which is a little neurotic wouldn't ya say??

First I ask my husband.

Me - "Do you think I'm neurotic?"
Hubby - "Like in a sexual way?"
Me -"What?" hahaha "Not EROTIC, NEUrotic!" hahaha
Hubby - hahaha "What does neurotic mean?"
Me - "A little obsessive, know...its kinda something I just know but I really can't explain."
Hubby - "I don't know."
Me - "Nevermind. Go look it up on"

Later I called my brother.

Bro - "Hello."
Me - "Do you think I'm neurotic?"
Bro - "What does that mean?"
Me - "Go look it up on RIGHT NOW."
Bro - "I'm not home right now."
Me - I kind of growl/grunt.
Bro- "How do you spell that? Diana (the barber and yes she knows me too) is going to look it up."
Me - "N-E-U-R-O-T-I-C."
Bro - "Are you sure? We can't find it."
Me - "Nevermind. Look it up on the computer and call me later."
Bro - "OK, bye."
Me - "Bye." (with a little disgust)

Several hours go by and I call my Mom while I'm sitting at Chili's with the fam.

Mom - "Hello?"
Me - "Do you think I'm neurotic?"
Mom - "I don't know. What does it mean?
Me - "Go look it up on You have to look up neurosis because the definition of neurotic is: a characteristic of neurosis or some stupid definition like that. Are you going to look it up?"
Mom - "Well.."
Me - "What are you doing?"
Mom - "Just watching T.V."
Me - "Lean over, grab your laptop and look it up RIGHT NOW and call me back."
Mom - "OK, bye."
Me - "Bye." (with a little disgust again)

A few minutes go by and my cell phone rings.

Me - "Hey."
Mom - haha "First off I want to say that it says it is a relatively mild personality disorder." haha
Me - "What?"
Mom - "Just keep that in mind.....but yes I think your a little neurotic. And now I think your brother is and maybe even me." haha
Me - haha "That's what I thought. Bro definitely is too. Okay bye." haha
Mom - haha "Bye."

The next day my bro finally calls me back to let me know that "Yes, you are neurotic and I think I am, too." haha I tell him "That's what Mom said." haha

Finally, I received enough confirmation that I am neurotic. And I feel so much better!

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D

obviously like your web-site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your
posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find
it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I'll certainly come again again.

С проблемами инвалидов, знаком не по наслышке, у меня 4-ро сыновей, у одного ДЦП, но я не об этом.

По воле Божьей, сложилось так, что я могу предоставить работу людям с ограниченными возможностями. Требуемые навыки: компьютер и интернет. Работа не сложная, но монотонная (заносить буквенно-цифровую информацию в прайс-листы компаний имеющих с нами договор). С деятельностью компании Вы можете ознакомиться по адресу (вроде указал в исходных данных (почему-то не переходит по ссылке, видимо пока не заслужил такой привелегии))

Я так подумал, что чем вообще без дела сидеть, лучше чем-то заниматься, а еще, естественно за оплату (прайс для одной компании 500 тенге). Сколько, прайсов сможет человек сделать в день, зависит от самого исполнителя.

Пожалуйста, пишите на мэйл.
