A day like any other day….

June 24, 2008 at 7:55 am (family, life)

June 24, 1996: frist day that changed my life forever.  This was the day I received that first message from the man that would become the man I would marry.

June 24, 1998: second day that changed my life forever.  This was the day I received the marriage proposal that to this day still makes me giddy.

June 24, 1999: the day I married my soulmate and absolute best friend in any life time.

June 24, 2008: The twelve/nine anniversary.  Today is the best day of the year.

Dear God of medical stuff…

June 17, 2008 at 11:11 am (family, life)

..or whomever you are. 

Will you please just stop?  I think two open heart surgeries, an aortic aneurysm surgery and now cancerous lung tumor surgery in the last 10 years that my father has had enough don’t you? 

Please give him a clean bill of health so he can be discharged and on his way to New Hampshire for a few months.

Please let the path results (which after almost a week have still not come back yet) be negative and let the last tube stop draining so he can go home.  That’s all he wants, not too much to ask for, right?

A few open letters…

Dear big box store chains:

Please, for the love of all that is sacred, stop putting your plus/women’s sized clothing together with your maternity wear.

Every time I see a really cute article of clothing and get all excited, I realize it’s maternity and have to put it back.

Stop that insanity; stop it right now. 

Dear Burger King,

First, your iced mocha Joe coffee rocks.  Second, letting locations choose to sell one, two or three sizes is awesome.

To the BK by my house please note that if a customer comes in and is willing to spend money for a mocha joe in a different size (even when it’s not on the menu) this should be considered a good thing.  Why?  Well a customer will to spend money and you’re making money, duh.

To the last two alarm company CSR’s I’ve had to engage with about my alarm system.  When a customer tells you that the battery has been replaced in the sensor and it’s still giving a trouble signal, please don’t put “need to show customer how to change the battery in sensor” on the work ticket.  All that does is piss off the tech and the customer who has to hear the tech say those words.  Also might be a good idea if you called the contact numbers in the correct order when you get a trouble signal.  Calling our places of employment on Saturday night?  Definitely not going to get the issue resolved.  Duh.

That is all!

Just let it go….

June 4, 2008 at 9:54 am (Politics)

Barack Obama now has 2158.5 delegates, well above the 2118 he needed to become the presumtive democratic nominee.  The .5 is because the democratic commitee is seating delegates from Michigan (Obama wasn’t even on the ballot because he knew it wasn’t going to count because Michigan moved up their primary) and Florida as well (Florida did the same thing with their primary). 

Side note: that really pisses me off because I didn’t vote in the Florida primary because they kept saying it was never going to be counted.   And while yes, Hillary did win Florida I’m wondering if there were more dems out there that didn’t vote because we knew it wasn’t going to count.  Would that have made a difference?  Ah well.  Hind sight and all that.

Anyway…she has not conceded as of yet.  She has 1920 delegates.  When does it become obvious that it’s over?  Stop dragging it out.  Accept the fact gracefully and let’s move on.

Something I found humorous….


If Hillary was choosen as VP, you know Bill would be all up in it.  He’d be like the assistant VP.  Do we want that?
