Newsflash

4 times today I got a 'warning' email about how Barack Obama is some radical Muslim that won't say the pledge of allegiance. And how we 'need' a Christian president to lead us.

Besides being a load of crap...hello??...we HAVE a Christian president and look what he's done to us, not to mention the rest of the world...it is just...well...a load of crap.

So rather than hit delete, I responded to every last email with the link from Snopes telling them that the email they forwarded was blatantly false. I shared the link with them and asked them to re-send the email pointing out that they had made a mistake.

So far, I haven't seen any of the emails recirculated.

Normally, I would just read and sigh and delete. But not anymore. Nope. If people chose to send emails without checking the validity of their claims I am going to start calling bullshit. Maybe I am just tired and cranky. Or maybe just tired of the lemming effect.

Ok, rant over. Back to work.

(Edit- Oh wow!! One of the emails WAS recirculated and my friend pointed out to everyone that he will check out Snopes before he sends out another mass email. I am really glad I said something. Thanks HDW for the support)


Hmmmm

Mega slammed at work. Trying to wrap up my desk since I will be on vacay from Thurs-Mon. I call a Respiratory Therapist client of mine to advise him of a job in his area.

A man that is not my client is moaning and screaming in the background and my client says 'this is a bad time to talk'.

Sounds like he's either having sex...or with a patient that is experiencing a vast amount of pain. What I wanna know is why would you answer your phone in either of those situations?

Just had to share with you guys.

OK, back to work.

10 Reasons Target is Better Than Walmart.

The last time I was in a Walmart was in 1997. I had just moved to Boca Raton, FL and was in search of shelf liner paper. While it was a fairly new Walmart, to me it was just dirty and cheap and dingy. I never went back. The ensuing years have not endeared me to Walmart either. Am not fond of their policies, let's put it that way.

I'm a huge Target fan...Target rocks. Targets are always clean, updated, friendly, and fun. At least the ones I frequent.

So what do YOU think?

Happy Friday The 13th!

I love this day! I was born on December 13 and have an affinity for all things 13.

When I fly? Seat 13. Favorite #? 13 Favorite floor? 13 even tho some people are superstitious and don't mark their 13th floor as the 13th floor. Wussies.

I initially thought today was my 1/2 birthday. Then realized that was the Izzie and Grey Goose talking. Sorry Gabe...I was wrong.


Represent

Saw this on Facebook. Being a native Californian, I have to agree with most of these. Especially INO

You know you're from California when.....

Everyone hates cops

You say "like" and "for sure" and "right on" and "dude" and "totally" and "peace out" and "chill" and "tight" and "bro" and "hell of" and "hella"(Nor Cal only) and "faded" and "stoked" and "fo sho" and you say them often

You know what real cheese taste like.

All the porn you watch is made here, cause we fuck better and thats how it is.

You don't get snowdays off because theres only snow in Mammoth, Tahoe, Shasta, and Big Bear.

You go to the Beach - not "down to the shore."

You know 65 mph really means 100.

When someone cuts you off, they get the horn and the finger and high speed chase cuz we dont fuck around on the road.

Our governor can kick your governors ass.

We don't stop at stop signs... we do a "california roll"
No cop no stop baby!

We have In-N-Out (Arizona and Vegas are lucky we share that with them).

We got the original Disneyland....wut now!

We call it soda, not pop.

Your sense of direction=Toward the ocean and away from the ocean.

You eat an In n Out burger at least once a week!!!

You know how to eat an artichoke.

Your monthly house payments exceed your annual income.

You pack shorts and a T-shirt for skiing in the snow, and a sweater and a wetsuit for the beach.

You consult your horoscope before planning your day.

It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH"

You make over $300,000 a year and still can't afford a house.

A really great parking space can totally move you to tears.

Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing the baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney IS George Clooney.

Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.

Your hairdresser is straight, your plumber is gay, the woman who delivers your mail is into S &M, and your Mary Kay rep is a guy in drag.

Both you AND your dog have therapists.

You have to leave the big company meeting early because Billy Blanks himself is teaching the 4:00 PM Tae Bo class.

You pass an elementary school playground and the children are all busy with their cell phones or pagers.


An Idea Who's Time Has Come?

Some things you find on the internet might be a tad hard to swallow.

Found this on my friend Chris' facebook page....S&BJD.

Why not? Sounds fun!

Well, maybe not the grilling steak part...especially since I don't have a grill. Also don't have a boyfriend at present either, which makes this a moot point? Moot post? Moo post?

Technically, I guess you could take him out for a steak?

Judges, what say you?


Guys, Don't Get Tricked

Ok guys..as much as you like to screw whatever comes your way, it only takes one scheming bitch to ruin your life forever...or 18 years (19 in Alabama)... whichever comes first.

If a girl tells you it is safe to have sex without a condom (cause she just finished her period) DO NOT TRUST THE LYING BITCH! Why? Because she is LYING! Duh!

All it takes is one of your guys to meet one of her eggs and your life as you know it is finished. FINISHED.

18 years of child support = $250,000 minimum all because you screwed some lying skank.

So be safe and no tricks this Halloween. Especially with skanky lying bitches from Alabama. They're the worst.


Still Here

It's been a nutso week so far. Averaging 11 hrs a day working. Work is indescribably bad lately. Sad thing is it's not just me..it's everyone. Just a bad vibe going on lately and nothing going right. Not complaining as much as explaining.

Still have to write about Lolla...haven't forgotten...it's just a lot of stuff is on the backburner these days.

Am pretty beat and just remembered...DAMN IT...forgot to eat dinner the 3rd night in a row. Oh well, I'll survive...it's too late to eat now anyway.

Will be back to normal blogging soon...I hope.

NNSD, motechs*

Dumping Grounds

Twice in the last two days, two friends have shared with me stressors and events in their lives. They both referred to it as 'core dumping'. Coincidence? Nothing is truly a coincidence.

As a benefit to all my readers aka adoring throngs (in thongs???) feel free to do a 'core dump' of your own.

Be my guest...dump away.

Ready...set....el dumpola!

Maybe I should get American Standard to sponsor this post?
