Thinkin' about more weird shit today...wouldn't it be weird if, all of a sudden, all the lakes and bodies of water, even the oceans, were drained of water, just for a week or so? Just so everybody could find everything that's been lost down there? Like cars, airplanes full of people, my God, could you even begin to imagine what's under the water on the earth? Bodies of a lot of people that have been reported missing...cell phones that people got pissed at the person they were talking to, and tossed it over the side of the boat...everything in the Bermuda Triangle that was supposedly lost there...
"Reality is a crutch for people who can't handle drugs..."
Ya know, if I was in a car that suddenly went out of control on the highway, I think, no, I know, that I'd grab the steering wheel and head straight for the biggest concrete thing I could see, so I wouldn't end up half alive. The WORST thing in the world would be to be, like, brain-dead, and living in a hospital bed forever...I can just see my grandchildren someday..."It's Sunday! And we have to go to the hospital & visit 'Grandma the Turnip'! What a waste of a perfectly good Sunday! Groan, groan..." Aaaauuuuggghhhh!
Allright...enough depressive shit for one day...but, hey, that's what a blog is for, isn't it?
I got the book I wanted on eBay the other day, 'Skeleton Crew'. It's an old book of Stephen King's short stories, and the very first story in it is my favorite, it's called 'The Mist', and a long time ago, like in the mid-80's, Joe and I were both Stephen King's biggest fans, and, actually, we decided that the store that all the people were stuck in for days, was just exactly like the first grocery store I worked at (the one where Kevin worked and Joe was a stockboy there, that's where I met both of 'em.) Plus Kev's 'little' brother, Ken, who was also a stockboy for a while, til he went back & cleaned the meat room in the evenings, which had to be the nastiest job in the world...you know, sticking your arm down in the drain to get the chicken guts out and all...eeeeewwwwww! Nasty with a capital 'N' !! That's why I went from cashier to produce mgr...for the most part, produce is clean!! (unless it's rotten and slimy, of course...). One of the weirdest things I ever saw was when one of the truck drivers showed me what happens when you take the broccoli out of the case it came in, and put it in a sinkful of water with salt in it...you oughtta SEE all the little green worms that squirm out!! Here is also a reason to wash your produce when you get it home...

Is this not the perfect house, or what?? It was halfway down the block from the house I grew up in, and I always totally LOVED it!! I was never actually inside it, but my mom's best friend and her husband owned and lived in the house right next to it,(in the left of the picture) and when I was teeny (like up to age 5 or so), I remember trotting down there holding 'Mommy's' hand (so I didn't get run over or anything, ya know? cuz we lived on the other side of the street) to go see Mrs. Green, for tea & cookies in the mornings, I even remember my favorite teacup I used to drink out of! She had a little gray/black poodle named Gidget. And when we left there, if we didn't have anything important to do, like walk down to the library, or anything, we'd walk through Mrs. Green's backyard, and go to the Isaly Shoppe for lunch and ice cream. And after that, we'd go across that main street to a grocery store, & get the stuff 'Mommy' was gonna make for dinner. And you know...this is like the few blocks I grew up in, especially before I could drive! The very first time I ever "French-kissed" anyone seriously was in the back parking lot of the Isaly Shoppe, around midnight on July 4th when I was 14! Wow. How weird. That was that 'first Kevin' I went out with.
And the grocery store that was across that other street? Well, that's the first one I ever worked at, and met Kev, my husband, at!
OK...I really don't have a clue where my head is at today...
Was thinking about something yesterday...very strange, doesn't involve me or anyone (well, except Psycho...but who counts him?). Thinking about the Oedipus complex, and the guys I know that have it. I only know of 2 guys that have it (Psycho's one!), and both of whom have moms that didn't work outside of the house. Anyone who knows anything about this, can you tell me...is it just a coincidence, or are guys more prone to this if their moms are home instead of working 40 hours a week? And, are girls more prone to the Electra complex now that their dads are closer to their kids now? I have no idea why I'm thinkin' more about psychology now. I guess I really wish I would've gone farther than 1 college class in psychology. 'Course, who knows? They might've committed me if I did...I dunno...okay...time for me to go...

Feels like: -3°F
Do you believe this shit?? Right now, it's 12:57 pm. And, yes, believe it or not, I've been up since 9 am. And I keep watching for DHL delivery truck. Kevin ordered Windows Vista from Dell, the day it was available to order off the website. A few days after that, they emld that he couldn't get it til March 9...then they emailed him Tuesday morning, said it shipped out that day, and it was coming on overnight delivery...in which case it should've been here yesterday, right??? Well....I'm still waiting!
Schools all over the place are closed, delayed, their water pipes have frozen & broken, or they have no heat...Woo Hoo! Yeah, like I care! Shit, exactly how spoiled are the little kidlets these days? Well, lemme tellya, and I think you'd all agree with me...If the heat went out one winter day at our school, we'd be told on the radio that there was no heat in the building...so wear lots of warm clothes! Yup...simpler times....one of my VERY FAVORITE TOYS was a big ol' bedspring-looking thing, called...a SLINKY!! And people are getting shot over a PS3? Heck, Tuesday morning (Tiffany Tuesday!), she was giving the weather report on the station, like always...and from 6 to 9 am the temperature was -5F, wind chill -12...
No wonder a woman called the station that morning and reported a penguin standing out beside rt. 309.
That reminds me of the time when Tif was maybe 8, I was looking out in the backyard and saw a really pretty bird, and I said 'Tif, come & see what 's in the backyard!' She was heading out there and said 'What?'...I said I think it was a kangaroo...
Okay...I've got another huge piece of pineapple upside-down cake calling me! hear it? "Eat me, eat me!!"

Okay...I know it isn't Tiffany Tuesday yet, but she put the laundromat lotto pictures up this weekend, so, if you feel like laughing, go here. But, make sure you go pee first...I will NOT take any responsibility for your messes!!
Damn, it is SO freakin' cold out today!! Our local city schools were closed today because of the wind chill factor being at 20 below 0! Actually, that was announced that they would be yesterday! That's so not fair! When I was little, the only time they closed school was during the blizzard of 78 or 79!
