Some Thoughts From My Head




Gots to love my local wingnuts on WCBM here in Balteey-More
played 2 Barry X sound bites where he said (and the order for the words are important to the wingnuts) teh following:
Christians
Arabs
Jews

He said AIR-RABS before for JEWS.

ZOMG!!!eleventy-million11!!!!

And don't even get me started about his first interview (which is chronicled much better here)

And then the snow set in today. And tonight rain ice and more snow!

I think I only closed my door and screamed twice today at work. I must be getting better LOL

Dad got back from California last night so I need to give him a call this evening.

You all would be proud of me. I used the Tee Vee remote tonight. I could not handle listening to Chris "Tweety" Matthews say "contraception" one more time. So instead a couple nice reruns of Scrubs on Comedy Central.

(and as a side note obviously helping out state budgets in these hard economic times regardless if it is contraception or other things is too big a concept for most of everyone on tee vee to handle)

Have I mentioned I'm ready for golf?

And this is what you get with bad weather. Me coming home early and acting like a drunk (Dutch?) monkey with a keyboard.

We're Alone Here Right?

Pursuant to Cat Vlog at my place the the long day was because of this.

We let 13 people go today.

And that kills me.

I hate it.

I hate it when good people through no fault of their own show up at work and leave unemployed

It made me stop caring for the last 2 hours today about my job. I had a quick meeting with my employee before teh mas email went out and to let him know the company will not be matching 401K contributions for 08 or 09.

Yes I am sad when these things happen and I read them in the paper or the inner tubes. When it happens to people I know it hurts that much more.

I think that sounds shallow and selfish of me but I am who I am and I have cat sleeping on my bath mat.

Reality has started to set in and it sucked and now it sucks more

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules....
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 new people and link'em....
5. Let each of the new tagees that they've been tagged.
6. Let the tagger know when you're done.

1. I ran the re-election campaign for Richard Nixon in my grade school (I even got a letter from him thanking me)
2. The small container of my mothers ashes on my mantle no longer freaks me out and sometimes we end up having some good conversations.
3. I was really caught up in the Watchmen movie craze (hey it helps my bidness) but now am leaning to thinking while visually it will be great content wise it may suck.
4. I once broke the motor on the boat of the commander at Carswell Air Force base in Ft Worth Texas.
5. I once stole a McDonald's Chicken McNuggets banner (it was college don't ask lol)

Not Sure I'm Handling This Right But I'm Trying

So this is where I find myself.
Siter1 and Sister2 both have 17 year old children who soon will be going to college.

And Dad is being harder on Sister1 and her plans on paying for college. She is a single Mom and only has the most beautiful child (I guess I should say woman) as a daughter in the entire multiverse (yes I'm biased).

Niece1 wants to go to UT. We are 18 months or so away from her going anywhere.

I think anyone who reads here or at my cardboard box underneath the overpass of the innertubes knows how much I love and respect my Father. He is the best person (ok a close tie with Mom) that I have ever known. And I realize how lucky I am to feel that way about him.

But I had to dress him down tonight.

I had to (hopefully) remind him he raised 2 great kids and me and that while being worried about Niece1 is fine and normal he should also remember to tell Sister1 "Hey I trust you know what you're doing here is my advice I love you talk soon"

And I know he does he just does not express it very well so Sister1 takes it the wrong way and here is Pido stuck in the middle with you lol.

It was a very different conversation I had with him tonight.

When he asked me "So what are you saying?" and I said it and we continued on the conversation. (That's how cool he is he didn't hang up on me :) )

I think this whole me being on the brink of being an adult is messing with me.

Can I go back to college instead of the kids? PLEASE?

Say Who's The Barber Here?

My finger hurts (no jokes please lol)
It is not a splinter but I have something under my fingernail that is making it hurt.

Being the educated human I am my course of action was, of course, run cold water over it.

And yes it still hurts.

but it reminded my of this SNL sketch. So at least I got something out of it.
