Here's some snippets for you:
The Other "F" Word
At lunch today Patrick mentioned that when he was growing up, his Grandpa got onto him for calling a guy on The People's Court a "Fool" because he felt that it was just as bad as the other "F" word. My other co-workers who were also lunching with us, said they grew up that way too and that it was in the bible that "fool" was a bad word. I have never, ever heard that in all my 28 years. I guess that is what I get for growing up in a Catholic household? My mother would always say "God looks out for drunks and fools".
I need a tracking device...
...for everything I own, apparently. My wallet was lost or possibly stolen on Monday. Someone turned it in at the police dept. but they did take, at the very least, my corporate credit card. Everything has since been canceled and taken care of, but what a pain in the ass. Whoever was resposible is a FOOL. ha.
In one week I start my very first graduate school course in Technical and Professional communictions. I can take two courses before I must submit GRE scores, so I'm going to test the waters and see if I can do this or not. English 6000 is editing. I have my big, fat Chicago style manual ready to go!
Another man was in my bedroom...
...because a roofer fell through my ceiling into my bedroom a week ago. That has been a major pain in my ass too. It took them 6 days to patch the hole and get it all painted. We had to sleep in the living room on the mattress. Last night we moved back into the bedroom and I woke up not knowing where the hell I was.
- Animaniacs Volume 1 - thanks Patrick!
- SanDisk 256MB MP3 player - yeah, its NOT an iPod and I know it, but it was only $13 and it'll hold enough for my purposes.
- Some clothes because I didn't want to do laundry last night (long story...I had a busy day).
- Turbo Jam DVDs...yeah, we'll see how that goes!
I like this way of blogging. I should try it more.
