Visiting the Past

Well it has been a busy past week. . . alright here goes

So Saturday it was the Candle Walk Festival in my town, and well it sucked really. . .
So then on Sunday, my work had their annual Christmas party, it was fun, Tom came and we had A TON OF FOOD. They even had crab legs, which was a first, and when we broke bulbs for money, I only got a lottery ticket. . . oh well. . . My Secret Santa was Bud, who got me this really cool trivia book, right up my alley. And some funky jewelry.
So then this week has been non stop busy busy. But I did manage to watch some old time anime. . . revisiting my past I would say.

Soo good, that I've been looking for other video's online. . heh

Idiots Amoung Us Beware

We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a "large" enough motor on the opener. I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, "Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower." I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, "NO, it's not." Four is larger than two.."

We haven't used Sears repair since.

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter. She said, "you gave me too much money." I said, "Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back." She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said “We’re sorry but they could not do that kind of thing." The clerk then proceeded to give me back$1 and 75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: "Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore."

From Kingman , KS .

My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for "minimal lettuce." He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.
From Kansas City

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?" To which I replied, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?" He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask."

Happened in Birmingham , Ala.

The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?!"

She was a probation officer in Wichita , KS

At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker. She was leaving the company due to "downsizing." Our manager commented cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do this more often." Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.

This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.

I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the sake of her life, couldn't understand why her system would not turn on.

A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriffs office, no less.

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the drivers side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. "Hey," I announced to the technician, "it’s open!" His reply, "I know. I already got that side."

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton , Mississippi


They walk among us... and the scary part is that they VOTE and

Man in Coffee Beans


This is bizarre - after you find the guy - it's so obvious. Once you find him - it's embarrassing, and you think, Why didn't I see him immediately?



According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.

Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.

We should've known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

Day from Hell

Today has been one of the worst days in a while. . . First off, the end of the semester always kills me. . . So I forgot to take my vitamins, and so I raced back home to get them, found this funny air thing with my brakes, which I fixed. But then I get all the way into town and realized that I'm not wearing my watch. . which I don't like to go without. . cause its always there (OCD I know) Second, well this was one of the good thing, I got extra credit in my History class. But then I went to go downtown to get my Uncle, and Nic a b-day gift, and I come back to my car, and the damn meter maid gave me a ticket!! I've never gotten one before, and I was only five minutes late. . but the entire row of cars got it. . . (It's that time of the year) I wanted to write on the check that I just sent them, (Thanks cock-suckers!!) but that of course would only make them mad. . . Then I go to mail it and get into the post office, and I dropped it in the wrong box, but I'm sure it all goes out the same. It was right next to the one I was supposed to drop it in. . they probably say what an idiot. Then I get outside, and see the easy drop box for mail, the one I was looking for in the first place. . . So yea. . that has been my day thus far. .

This was at my Uncle Denny's 60 B-Day back in September. . . seems like a long time ago I know. . . look no snow!!!!

Me, my Mom, and I honestly cannot remember (I am really bad with names) But I believe it was my Aunt Marcie's Aunt. We had a good conversation, cause she too was a teacher. I also have Slick in my lap Isn't he cute

Couple of family pictures, one of everyone, and one of just the four sibblings. It was a very nice time. I love Canada

My second cousins

Denny is a few months older than Abby, so he is a rather big boy. With my aunt Bonnie, next to him with BJ their dog

My aunt Bonnie once again holding little Abby

I just got these pics from my aunt's. My second cousins. Denny from my cousin Abe, and Nik, and Abby from my cousin Yvonne, and Trevor.

Snow. . .

It will not stop coming down, its like a never ending dump. . . I wouldn't mind it if I didn't have to come into to town nearly every fricken day. . . BUT I DO SO STOP SNOWING!!!! at least for the next week and a half, until I'm completely done with classes.

This weekend in my town, there is the Candle Walk Festival. And this year they are having a portable skating rink. I'm really excited, cause I want to break out my skates, and join in the festivities. A little strange for me to say I know, but hey, I'm all for Christmas time. Plus my works X-mas party is on Sunday, and then I really want to go and see either "I'm Not There" the Bob Dylan movie, and also "The Golden Compass" I read the book years and years ago, but now that the movie is coming out I can't wait to see it. But the big problem is that well their are not at the same theatre, but I still could see both in one day. But I'm not sure, maybe I should spread them out a little bit. Heh. But "I'm Not There" will only be around for a short time, SO. . . I think I should go and see that one this weekend.
