June 3, 2010

For those of you here in San Antonio...who caught that storm last night? My mother & I were out in Castroville at the time it hit. It was calm...and within 3 minutes...I am not exaggerating...within 3 minutes the wind had picked up and the skies went almost completely black. 5 minutes later the entire town had lost power, the street signs were blowing around, and there were the beginning whirls of a tornado in the fields. It was...intense. But beautiful. Absolutely amazing. Once again, I must point out how one can feel the electricity of the storm in one's veins. Dramatic? You should have been there. It was awesome.

The chupacabras[1] (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃupaˈkaβɾas], from chupar "to suck" and cabra "goat", literally "goat sucker"), is a legendary cryptid (a creature whose existence has been suggested but is regarded as highly unlikely) rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American communities.[2] The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Physical descriptions of the creature vary. Eyewitness sightings have been claimed as early as 1990 in Puerto Rico, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile. It is supposedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail. Biologists and wildlife management officials view the chupacabras as a contemporary legend.[3]

My Life is Average

Today, while working as a camp counselor, I heard two boys talking. One, about 4, asked the other if they could be best friends forever." The other's response? "Maybe, but we may need a few breaks." Smartest little kid ever. MLIA

Today, I was eating Veggie Tales fruit snacks. Fruit snacks in the shape of vegetables. That has got to be the most contradictory idea i've heard. MLIA.

Today, one of the boys at my school asked me what kind of girl I am. My reply? "The kind who get's sunburned from being outside blowing bubbles too long." I have a date this Friday. MLIA

Today, I was on an airplane and was handed some peanuts. Turns out, there's directions on the packet; open bag, eat peanuts. Gee thanks, I would have never figured it out. MLIA.

Today in chemistry, my teacher was talking about acids and bases, and giving demostrations for some. Just as the class was ending, a girl in the back of the room puts up her hand and asks if a banana is a base. Somehow, we're testing it tomorrow. MLIA.

Learn From My Fail

Do not make an improvised facial mask out of leftover canned pumpkin puree even if it is full of vitamins. The vitamins might be good for your skin, but the pumpkin will leave a bit of a stain. #LFMF

When deciding what marshmallows to use in your instant hot cocoa, never decide on the extra-giant ones and then put them in the cold cocoa while you’re microwaving it to make it "melt faster". You will not be able to access your cocoa once it’s done. #LFMF

General rule about status updates on facebook:If it feels inappropriate even when excessively probably is. #LFMF

When cutting your own bangs ONLY TO YOUR EYEBROWS, make sure your eyebrows weren’t raised in concentration. Your bangs will be very short when you stand back and lower your eyebrows. #LFMF

Customers are Fun

Free Cop Holder With Drink
Movie Theater Durham, NC, USA

(A customer approaches the ticket drop, holding a half bottle of wine.)
Me: “You cannot bring that in here, ma’am. That is against the law.”
Customer: “What! I need to bring this in! I can’t just leave it in my car! There is a law about open containers being in cars in this state.”
Me: “How did you manage to bring it all the way here, then?”
Customer: “Oh, it wasn’t opened when I left. I drank it on the way here.”
Me: “So you had an open container and you were drinking on the way here in your car?”
Customer: “No! I hung the bottle out the window on the way here, and put my head out the window when I was drinking, so it doesn’t count!”
Me: “Okay, I’m going to call the police now. You wait here.”
Customer: “Okay! Is he going to hold this for me while I watch my movie?”
