The Friday before Fall Break ROCKS even more!
So before I start to party,
I'll upend my head and get the FRAGS out.
You don't have to be celebrating Fall Break to join in!
Go see Mrs. 4444 at Half Past Kissin' Time to play along!
* I voted!
It's a family tradition for Brian and I to take the Blue Book and our ballots to breakfast and discuss them and fill them out.
Growing up, my family (Mom, Dad, me <- the good one and my three brothers <- the naughty ones) would all sit around the kitchen table and Mom and Dad would take turns presenting an issue. They woud take turns presenting the "Pros" and "Cons." They tried to be neutral, but mom just couldn't help yourself. "Oh for heaven's sake Ed! You're to the right of Genghis Kahn." See! That's where I learned about political leaders.......like Genghis Kahn!
* Hmmm......picked up my parents' mail (since they are on thir mission in Rome, it's a regular occurrence.)
Their mail in ballots were in there.
I DO have power of attorney.
Should I go ahead and vote FOR them?
Shall I mark "yes" on all the "right" issues for my mom and really send her over the edge?
I told you I was the good child!
* I started my Christmas shopping.
I went to the store for something very specific for Garrett and Trammell.
The store didn't have it.
So I bought some stuff for myself.
I'm counting it as Christmas shopping even though I'll probably be wearing my new purchases in October.
My INTENT was to Christmas shop!
There was no line for a "write in" candidate for coroner on the ballot.
How are people going to write me in?
I'll never get to be coroner.
Okay so it wasn't "overheard."
It was said directly to me.
"You need to get a hobby...........and not ironing!"
Wow! Someone doesn't appreciate those crisp, unwrinkled sheets enough.
It was said in a totally, loving way........like, "You need to do something fun, just for yourself."
Next time, I'm only ironing MY SIDE of the sheets.
* If you were picking a new hobby,
would you choose kick boxing or that new pole dancing exercise that's all the rage?
NEITHER of those is going to be my new hobby!
I HATE to sweat and I think both of thoseinvolve sweating.
* The following Facebook status from a FEMALE friend just made me gag on my cupcake -
"Got a haircut today and had my chin hairs waxed for the first time! It's awesome. My chin is so smooth."
This one status update alone is argument for why 1) Facebook should be shut down immediately. 2) Facebook isn't for moms and dads. 3) We really aren't qualified to make important decisions like who should run this country.
Is this grounds to "unfriend" someone.
* Alright - I've got a plane to catch.
Have a great weekend!
