Down to the wire

So 30 is literally right around the corner. I will turn the big 3-0 in five days. It doesn't feel like I have been on this earth for 30 years. That is a really long time. I was born when the Bee-Gees were popular. I am old enough to remember the Challenger exlposion. People tight rolled their jeans when I was in grade school. Just writing this makes me feel quite ancient. Strangely, someone asked me if I was going to turn over a new leaf for my birthday. What? Why? New leaf? I guess. I'm not crazy about the current side of my leaf, but I am certainly not planning on turning a leaf while I'm in Vegas. I imagine that my leaf from Las Vegas is going to look a little worse for wear. It's not a great birthday until you shave off a few future birthdays.

A Question for the masses

Hey folks. I have an interesting query that I heard today from an aquaintence. So, this person recently had "relations" with a guy and it turns out he was packing...if you get what I mean. So she thinks that she may have bruised her lady parts during their act (specifically the cervix?). I think that's what she thinks it is. So here's the question (actually questions):

A. has this ever happened to you?
B. Will it build up some sort of callous?
C. Could this cause some sort of medical problem?

I will have you know that B. is something she really wanted to know. I have never really had this experience so I thought I would open it up to the world wide web.

Thoughts? Anyone? Anyone?

A word about the previous post

Here's the thing. A dear friend was wrongfully fired...via voicemail from this establishment. I am not going to get into particulars, but the whole thing angers me to no end. Here's something you should know about me. I take it very personally when people mess with my friends. I love them and they deserve the best. With this in mind, I am cannot frequent a business that has so clearly lost it's path. Also, just in case you are of a skeptical nature, it truly was a firing that was not warranted. I was a witness to a lot of what led up to it. Some people choose to be cowards in their everyday life. This is one of those times. I do believe in karma and that's what comforts me about the situation. The friend will land on her feet. Oh, and I quit, too.

If you are...

Going to have a vanity license plate then it should make sense. I was behind a truck the other day and it was a University of Alabama tag and the letters were "RBLKWD"

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? I just don't know.

Note to Self

It turns out that cats do NOT enjoy wearing a dog collar just below their front paws and put on a leash. Apparently, when you do this they will jump around like a show-monkey. It also turns out that you might laugh so hard you have an aneurysm.

Vegas, Baby

I am leaving for Las Vegas on October 2nd. My companion for this trip is the roommie, Sara. For those of you who have provided me excuses for why you can't go to on the birthday extravaganza...then I provide Exibit A. I have lots of plans for my three nights and four days and I can't wait. I am definitely going to see The Thunder From Down Under and the restaurant Bouchon. Other than that, things are pretty much in the air!!

I would like to say

That I had a much improved day. I would like to say that. Unfortunately, it turns out that today was not better. On my way to work, my car was making a strange noise but I ignored it and it went away. About ten minutes later, I much louder noise and the car started driving funny and I realized that I had a flat tire. Luckily, I wasn't very far from a large parking lot. I called AAA and they came out and had me back on the road in less than an hour. My day before was such crap, this whole thing didn't really phase me. Of course, my philosophical point of view changed once I realized that after buying two new tires (apparently, another one was pretty worn down) I was going to be out $353. I'll admit that I had a little pity party and cried for a couple of minutes in the car on the way back to work. After getting myself under control - after all - as a particularly compassionate person told me yesterday "crying doesn't fix anything."

Ironically enough, while I was driving to work, before the tire went, I was singing along to the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want"

I'm about to have an old person moment

the picture has nothing to do with this, but I looked up "angry muppets" and this is something I found and it made me laugh. I need a laugh

Although I consider myself fairly young...I am about to have one of "those kids today" rants.

Surprisingly this "story" could be about someone that is several years older than I am...but here it is...

(the following should be read with a sarcastic tone - just a suggestion)
Let's say (hypothetically) that someone you depend on at work or at home or childcare or something similar up an disappeared. Not the scary kind of disappear, but the "peace out, see ya!" kind of way. Let's say this person didn't give you any personal notice. Perhaps they informed you via a letter, or email, or text message. Definitely something that didn't require any kind of human interaction. Let's say that there was no notice. No two weeks, no day, no hour notice. Okay, keep up with me here...Let's say that said person left because she wanted to join up with a campaign of sorts. Maybe political. Maybe not. And that's it. No sorry, no I hate that this may inconvenience you in a major way. Just I'm leaving, I've decided to do this. I've already left.

I imagine that the person this happened to would be really irritated. Maybe even mad. I don't know. I would certainly hate to be that person.
