this new time thing takes some getting used to. ozzie and i were up early today, i even got to work an hour early. It was wierd seeing it get dark so early. I found myself getting sleepy at like 10. This was going to be a restfull weekend but that didn't work. Saturday we had food distrubution for Angel Food. Than went grocery shopping with Patti. Got some more pumkins. Yesterday we carved them, Patti made a cat, Hannah made a face and i made a homestar.
I was listening to an old ADAT of Arroon we recorded way back when. Talk about old stuff. One of the pieces was Megan's Lulabye. I hadn't heard that in a long time. Has he written any new stuff lately. I haven't heard much.
These people are always comming to the station giving out Red Bull's (dealers trying to get you addicted, then you gotta pay out to keep the rush) i always say no. Today i thought i'd just try it to see what it was all about. I since then have gotten my drivers licenced renewed, cleaned up the office, sent out about 45 QSL reports, unloaded my car, fixed up my storage room, began planning on Visio the installation of the new radio stations, played 20q a few times, talked to TxDot about Traffic Lane Changes, and it's only 11:00.
FINE : This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
FIVE MINUTES : If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
NOTHING : This is the calm before the storm. This means "something" and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with "Nothing" usually end in "Fine"
GO AHEAD: This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.
LOUD SIGH: This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing"
THAT'S OKAY : This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
THANKS: A woman is thanking you. Do not question it or faint. Just say you're welcome.
I've never really been gifted in the arts. I remember way back when i was a child... *sigh* in sunday school we used to make these coasters out of popiscle sticks... and impressions of our palms with plaster-from-paris. You could always tell which one i made. It was the one that looked like the ashtray that the little boy made during that episode of that tv show with the Seavers. I can't even remember what it was called. Growing Pains! That's what it was. There aren't any tv shows like that anymore. Not even any cartoons like the ones we grew up with. Garfield and friends, bugs bunny and tweety show. 3-2-1 contact.
but i digress. I was talking about my lack of tallent. Last night Hannah wanted to make something for tracy's birthday today so we went to walmart and she found all this stuff.. i didn't have any idea what she was going to use it all for or how it was all going to come together but last night when it was all done with.. vola.. she'd had these three really cool tote bags decorated and all. This is an 11 year old! I can't even color inbetween the lines. I mean.. i can acept the fact that i'm not gifted in some things but i wish i could make something personaly for someone. Patti made me this picture frame out of glass mosiacs, and another really cool frame with "Faith, Hope and Love" printed on it. Even shannon once gave me a candle with decorations on it. I don't think i've ever given someone something that i made out of scratch. A few weeks ago i tried making some mosiac stuff but i think i messed that up too and the cement stuff never came off. Maybe i should start going back to sunday school with the kids and start praticing. I mean.. store gifts are cool.. but i like the ones made better.. because of the time and effort invovled in making it. Anyone can go shopping.. but only certian people can actually make something.
Just in case you weren't sure what you wanted on the face of your pumkins.. try these out for size. Click on the one you'd like, enter the size of your gord and print away. If your not a Homestar fan forget it...
Lori and Tim's boss's day gifts finally came in. Fortuanly i had enough points from thinkgeek.com to cash in some free stuff. Like a TV-B-Gone. How many times have you been in a restruant or lobby or waiting room and had some anoying tv blaring in the background. well. .this nifty little device runs through ALL the tv-off codes. The other cool device was a handheld version of the game 20 Questions. I found the website not to long ago, 20q.net (or 20q. com for the visual people)
And if you haven't had enough clicks for the day.. try this one out. Poor guy. I would never admit to such an act.
