May 25, 2010

Hello! I hope you are all having a great day. :) I know it's a cloudy, gloomy day, but hey, we can all go dancing in the rain. We can do RiverDance!
^yeah. obviously I wrote this when it was raining & it is no longer raining.

Paul Gray, the bassist of Slipknot, died yesterday at age 38. This is a tragedy for the music industry. Moment of silence for a man who defined epic. :(


Today. Is. The. Cookie Monster's Birthday.

Are you ready?
Today is ALSO *****NERD OR GEEK PRIDE DAY*****
Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha….
Okay. I'll stop now.

Bwah hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Okay. I'm done.

It's also National Missing Children's Day, and National Tap Dance Day.
Hey! See? We should all go outside, do River Dance real quick, and then come back in like nothing happened. I'm sure that would make news. We would be the most EPIC Chase site in the world. Oh, wait. We already are.

A couple of you were privy to this hilarity yesterday.
So, I was in a mood yesterday, and I decided that I was going to break down and have a cigarette. I got the cigarette. I needed a lighter. Four people later, I got a lighter. I was thwarted by Brandon and Mike, but made it around their blockade. I went outside…put the cigarette in my mouth…

and the lighter would not work.

So Brandon takes the lighter and the cigarette from me whilst I stand there with my mouth hanging open in shock of the trouble I had to go through to get nowhere, and gives them back to their rightful owners. The owner of the lighter, thank you, John, flicks the lighter on with no problemo.

What an epic fail of…a fail. So. I made it through yesterday without a cigarette, which makes it a week that I have been smoke-free. Yay!

Please be conscious of your co-workers. I know we get involved in our own worlds and cliques and what-not, but you never know when someone needs a kind word, an ear to bed, or when you're going to be the last straw for them.

Pompeii is a ruined and partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the commune of Pompeii. Along with Herculaneum, its sister city, Pompeii was destroyed and completely buried during a long catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in 79 AD. The eruption buried Pompeii under 22 meters of ash and pumice, and it was lost for nearly 1,600 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1592. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire. Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy, with approximately 2,500,000 visitors every year.[1]


My Life is Average

I was waiting for a call about whether I got accepted to get my job or not. Then I heard a telephone ring in the distance; we live in a big house so I screamed and ran downstairs as fast as I could to get the phone. I kept on slipping and falling on the hardwood stairs because I had socks on. When I finally got there covered in bruises, panting, I found out the sound only came from the movie my sister was watching on the couch. MLIA

So my grandmother used the most cell phone minutes in the house w/ just over 2000 this month. I, the teenager, used the least, ranking just under both of my parents. MLIA?

Today I decided to buy Sour Patch Kids for my after-lunch snack. I held up each package to the light to see if there were a lot of red ones before I picked a pack to buy. MLIA.
^^the red ones are my favorite, too.

Today my mom has finished building LEGO's Death Star and Star-Trek Enterprise. I'm so proud that my mom knows what's important in life. MLIA
^^this sounds oddly like something my son would say about me....but he's only 6 and is not allowed online except to play nickolodean.

Learn from My Fail

While holding your car keys in one hand and trash in the other, be careful which one you toss in the dumpster. #LFMF

When you see a small spider in your vehicle at the end of the week don't ignore it. Over the weekend that spider might be busy making the biggest web you ever saw and giving birth to about 50 little baby spiders. In your vehicle. Which you then have to drive to work. #LFMF

When joking around at a new job, remember that not all work environments are the same, and what may have been a common joke one place may be mistaken as sexual harassment at a different place. #LFMF
^^crazy. we just took the code of conduct training. apparently, he missed that.

Note to self: While giggling hysterically because your dog just let out a loud burp, remember to STEP AWAY. Dog burps are shockingly vile. #LFMF

Customers are Fun

A Complete Avatard
Video Rental Phoenix, AZ, USA

Customer: “Do you have any copies of that new Avatar movie?”
Me: “Sorry it looks like it’s not available anywhere right now. I could call you when a copy comes in if you like.”
Customer: “You didn’t check the back room. Do you have any there?”
Me: “No, we don’t keep movies in the back. Company policy says we have to have all available copies on the shelf.”
Customer: “So, why don’t you have any on the shelf?”
Me: “Because we’re all checked out. There are none present at this store or any other in this area. It’s an extremely popular movie since it just came out a few days ago. We have no more copies at any nearby store.”
Customer: “Why not?”
Me: “Well, they all got checked out by other people.”
Customer: “Well, why the heck did you let them do that? What kind of video store lets people just take whatever movie they want?!”
