funny stuff now in my life...yes, seek & you WILL find it!! really!

...yes, I'm an unofficial member of the 'Center For The Easily Amused'! But I've worked harder than most people would ever understand, to join it...go me!! lol!
Marci called me from Fostoria last night, & wow, it was so neat to talk to her~! She was the girl that got hired at the store up there a few months after I transferred there...we pretty much circled each other like cats for a while, it was kinda like "dislike on first sight"...cuz I was about 22...she was a bouncy cheerleader just out of high school..& couldn't start until after the Whitesnake/Great White concert she had tickets for...OMG, you talk about being jealous...! We both went separately to the store manager (who was more of a friend/drinking buddy/etc to everyone there than a boss...he was REALLY HOT...but married...) I referred to the manager that he was lured in to hire her cuz she was a little teenybopper...Marci told him I was a skinny blond bitch...promising start for two coworkers, huh? Geez, now that I think about it, the manager was really in an awful position, wasnt he? But Marci & I handled it like the adults we were...After work one day I asked her to go to the bar for a beer with me...And we've been great friends ever since!! Remember, this was mid-80's...and Tif was 2, Marci had a daughter years later, in the 90's! And she's done parenthood like me...that's her only kid~!! And I'm facebook friends with both of 'em...her daughter's in college for law enforcement, & had a video posted of her getting 'tazed' on her page... OMG, that was so funny! It was at the police station, for school!! So, in the conversation last night, I kinda had trouble talking clearly (ms symptom..tripping over the words, ya know? Well,no, most of you don't, but X does, he's heard me do that, & any friends with ms do...)...anyway, I was trying to say a word, & couldnt translate it from my brain to my I slipped into "cuss like a sailor mode", & said shit! all of a sudden, Marce cracked up, & said "you had NO problem with that word!" She is a hoot!!
Okay, I hafta anyone but me going to watch the royal wedding? Coverage starts at 4 am...I'm watching it in tribute to my Mom...she got up at 4 am in July 1981 to watch Charles & Diana's wedding, & I made fun of her for it, but this one is going to be neat...because it's not a couple that are marrying for any reason but the fact that they are in love! Mom always loved London, the 2 times I went with Mom & Dad, we went to Selfridge's department store a LOT! Hey, wouldnt it be neat if Kate's sister, Pippa & Prince Harry fell in love & got married someday? Oh, I really AM sounding old!
Okay, my cheeseburgur & candybars are calling! I had an iv of steroids today, Dr prescribed them one day of 1000mg a month, saying it was called the pulse system.

funny stuff from 20+ years ago

...that's my signature, you know? lol!

I remember when I had my last produce manager job at the store they just built here in town. It was like, the perfect job, and it was about 5 minutes from my house! They were still building the store as all of us were getting hired. That was one of the best times in the world...the big bosses from Lima & Wapakoneta ( you never even knew there was a town named that in Ohio, didja?), & the company's owner were there every day, meeting everyone, and getting ideas for what to put here, & there...and now I know exactly why you'll never see a clock up on the wall by the registers. It was mentioned at one of the earlier meetings, and the human resources guy said no, you don't want customers watching the clock to see how long they're waiting in line. Makes sense...I never would've thought of that!

So, we all got settled in & familiar with the place, & comfy with each other enough so that we knew who to pick on, & who to leave alone...our lunch room/breakroom was upstairs. All of us who worked in produce were hanging out, taking lunch, then one of the guys pointed out the playmate cooler sitting there, & I told him it was one of the guys' who worked there's lunchbox...*evil grin*. He went over & picked it up, and stood on a chair & moved one of the ceiling tiles, put the cooler up in the ceiling, & our work was done! And it was impossible to keep a straight face when we heard him thundering through the store yelling death threats to whoever stole his lunch! And then he busted through the swinging doors to our back room...One look at him, and I just started laughing, then I made the guy that put it up there take Scotty upstairs & show him where it was!! Me? Are you crazy? I didn't hide it!

stupid stuff...

yup...this is definitely the post for this title!!

I've just been sitting around remembering stuff that we did to each other at work 20-some years ago, that made everybody die laughing...Like the time that I was mopping the floor in my produce aisle. The acting store manager, Mark, rounded the corner in a hurry to get something, and WUMP!, he went I did the only natural thing to do...went over & grabbed the p.a. & announced "Mark down in produce!"

Then almost every weekend we all went out drinking, we all HAD to stop at the Dairy-Mart on the way back to my date's mom & dad's house so we could all get chips & junk food. And, of course, the guy I was with was the guy that thought he could do everything. Hmph...So I can't even imagine the fear those clerks felt when they saw us coming...7 or 8 drunk-ass fools! John always made a beeline for the place you make your own nachos, & made a huge plate then he'd grab a can of pop & a couple candy bars, like the rest of us...the difference was, the rest of us would pay right away, John would start eating right then...! We'd all bitch him out, but he'd say I won't get in trouble unless I leave...

randoms again...after all, what's more random than politics, now?

ahahahaha....I LOVE the radio guy, Mancow! Even when he says something mean about a Republican, it's still funny...I like John Boehner...but I can't keep a straight face when I hear someone call him "Weeper of the House" or Mancow just referred to him as "Boo-Hoo Boehner"! Yes, usually the news has been anything BUT good lately, but if you hear everything with an offbeat sense of humor,'s fun, anyway.

And I can't help but feel that Obama is misleading people when he says the highest income earners in America shouldn't get the extended 'Bush-era tax cuts'. Which, by the way, go to the families that have an income of $250,000 +...not the "MILLIONAIRES & BILLIONAIRES", that he kept emphasizing in his "first campaign speech for the 2012 election". You have to realize the difference between a 'quarter of a million' & a million...he's either trying to talk down to all of us & make us feel stupid...or (an even worse idea), he's actually that stupid, & he's our president:-/

And, no, I don't know who I want for our next president in 2012...but I'm halfway there...I know who I don't want...

randoms again...

Sunday, Sunday... What a nice, warm day it was! About 80 & sunny! And it's still warm now at 10:30! Bro showed up Saturday at 1:00, cuz he's been in Scottsdale for a month, how cool is that life? His son is here, running the construction company, and building a frozen yogurt shop in a shopping center, and his son got it finished and open already! But I missed opening day...that's did Bro.. Haikus for the computer Your file was so big. It might be very useful. But now it is gone. The Web site you seek Cannot be located, but Countless more exist. Chaos reigns within. Reflect, repent, and reboot. Order shall return. Program aborting: Close all that you have worked on. You ask far too much. Windows NT crashed. I am the Blue Screen of Death. No one hears your screams. Yesterday it worked. Today it is not working. Windows is like that. First snow, then silence. This thousand-dollar screen dies So beautifully. With searching comes loss And the presence of absence: "My Novel" not found. The Tao that is seen Is not the true Tao until You bring fresh toner. Stay the patient course. Of little worth is your ire. The network is down. A crash reduces Your expensive computer To a simple stone. Three things are certain: Death, taxes, and lost data. Guess which has occurred. You step in the stream, But the water has moved on. This page is not here. Out of memory. We wish to hold the whole sky But we never will. Having been erased, The document you're seeking Must now be retyped. Serious error. All shortcuts have disappeared. Screen. Mind. Both are blank. I LOVE words, you know? I get it from my Mom and her whole side of the family! Heck, Mom's little brother even teaches his dogs new words...throws a plastic elephant, then "Go get the pachyderm, Duke!" I was telling Bro about the home nurse that comes once a week to check my blood pressure, etc. He knows her, she went to high school with him...sheesh, between the 2 of us, we probably DO know half of our town...then if you add Tif in there, we DEFINITELY know everyone! Anyway, I've begun referring to this nurse as 'Negative Nellie'. Just because she's wound so tight that no matter what I say, she's got a bad opinion about it...hence, we really don't talk much, except how's my pt ? all Sat before Bro left, I said, gotta tell you about negative nellie...& he knew who I was talking about before I said anything!...but we were just laughing about everything...she was getting a glass of ice water last week, & standing in the kitchen in front of the sink, 'where's your water?'...huh???????????? I pointed at the sink & said "right there"...and I held my tongue before I said "Duhh!". Nellie said, horrified, 'you drink tap water??' Holy cow! I have city water, not sulphur-smelling well water! 'Do you know what's in that stuff?' 'Well, Nellie, for all you really know, it might be exactly the same as what's in bottled water, but without all the wasted plastic...' Said with a smile, you know, cuz teasing someone who's that neurotic...can be fun. ;-) But, did I let it go? Noooooo....She said something about the chemicals added to the water, & I couldn't resist 'Like fluoride, ya mean?' In about ten years, all of America will be toothless, cuz everybody drinks "bottled water"! Then she said 'That's an old wives tale!' I just smiled & shrugged...why argue about something like that??
