Copy Cat

I want everyone to know that I LOVE @GEEKSOAP a.k.a Lesley. Really. Did you know that she was going to debut a similar soap to mine and didn't? Nope. She had the very same idea as I did, but being the wonderful person that she is, she simply and ever so politely suggested I have the item. Three weeks later this item is the cause of life-changing events for me.

Yesterday was my husbands last night of “work”. He had a shitty job that wasted his talents. But it pays the bills you say! Gasp! Seriously...screw the bills. Yes, yes, I know, I know . . . we all need to pay for our cable, car payments, new toys, new shoes, whatever the TV is telling us is cool.

But the truth is you don't need all of that shit . . . really, you don't. However, I am not going to lie and say that I wouldn't spend thousands of dollars on this. I would. I really, really would.

My point.

You never know when one single act of kindness will change someones life.

I make soap. Lesley makes soap. I am going to now pimp Lesley's soap

I have come across some truly wonderful people in the last year. Which is a good thing, as I have no room in my life for unnecessary negativity. I don't want to be angry all of the time. I don't want to hate people. Yes, a lot of things truly piss me off and sometimes they make me so mad I could spit. Spit I tell you! Spitting is gross. It freaks me out. I have a fear of mucus. So, I would prefer not to get that mad...I digress.

Back to my point . . .

Don't be a jerk. Be nice to people. Stop worrying about how YOU are going to get to the top. Who wants to be up there anywho? I find it is generally full of assholes anyways. Do your own thing and do it with style. What'll that get you? Well, I have cool tattoos, I am a way hot Soccer Mom. My husband totally wants to do me ALL the time. I make a living doing what I love. Does it get any better? Not really. I am this happy because I CHOOSE TO BE.

So, in summary, this is what Lesley taught me: You never know when one single act of kindness will change someones life.

For the assholes out there, it may already be too late, but the closest translation for you is: Stop being a dick.

P.S. A giant shout out to @geekwithsoul for understanding what I wanted to say. You rule.

Damn it, I'm a guy, quit making me blush! It's embarrassing :)

And I know I told you privately, but I'll put it here for everyone else as well: I am continually touched by how hard you work to acknowledge everyone who has offered you help and how you go out of your way to share whatever goodness comes your way.

[see, now I made you blush! hee hee]

Doctor Who soap!?!? :o *faints*

and hope this doesn't sound corny or silly but I just wanted to let you know you are one of the coolest people I know (even if I don't "know" you of course, but from your tweets and FB and so on) and a huge reason to that is that you seem to be such a good person. :)

Kylee, I love you. No seriously. Thank you. I meant to comment the first day you posted this, but I think I was too speechless at all of the love you were sending my way. Honestly, I am super excited for you and even more excited that we've become friends and been brought together this way.

Thank you for being awesome. Thank you for being genuine and being the kind of person that everyone should strive to be. I'm so glad we see eye to eye on so many things. You rock, girl!

Thanks for making my day. <3
