I really needed a laugh this morning. Then I got this email:

I am flagging your email for later b/c I really want to write back but I am also under a time crunch.

I hate time crunches more than any other type of crunch, including stomach crunches...

I love my friends.

Mmm. Chocolate

I just had a Snickers bar for the first time in a REALLY long time.

I love the mini Snickers that people set out for Halloween or Easter. You know, the bite-sized ones. But I'm not a fan of the whole Snickers candy bar. It's too much... and too overwhelming on the nugget part.

I think I just want a PayDay covered in Chocolate. Peanuts and chocolate.

Oh, who am I kidding?! Just give me the Reese's PB Eggs!!
I understand your taste changing every 7 years, but generally it's for accepting new foods, not eliminating old ones. Weird.

Another Year Older

Happy 10th Blogger!

The Lights Are On But Nobody's Home

As Pork pointed out, I've been a little MIA lately. My sincere apologies.

I know it's a bad excuse, but work's been CRAZY... like moreso than normal. Penny Lane can vouch for me on that one.

Whether you accept my excuse or not, I'll be trying really hard to get back in the swing of things. Lots going on... and many pics of the interesting things people do.

Bear with me... keep reading!

The Princess Is In Another Castle.

photo from here

Since you're bored and reading my blog... you should visit www.weheartit.com. It's a bunch of fabulous pics that people "heart" all over the internet. Maybe you could heart something too.

Btw... I think the impact of Super Mario Brothers is severely underestimated.

Foam Soap

I think it's ridiculous that adult females flush the toilet with their foot at work.

This isn't the "around-the-side" unisex bathroom at Tom's Shell that only gets hosed out once a week. This is the work bathroom that they clean three times per day.

And you're just going to wash your hands anyway! Or at least you should!

Speaking of which, I'm convinced foam soap doesn't work as well as the old school soap.

You're Seriously Pulling That?

Dear Mean Lady At Work,

Just because you've spent 30+ years here, doesn't make you the all-knowing princess. I know a few things, myself. Next time you pick up the phone to call me, be polite about it.


(I may be nice to everyone,
but that doesn't mean I have to like them.)

More Favorite Things

A while back, I did this post highlighting a few of my favorite websites. Then, LMB over at A Little Blog About Nothing deemed me worthy of the "Love Ya" Award. Not knowing too much about awards and how these things work on Blogger, I did some research. Looks like I gotta post my list of favorite things, only BlogStyle. So here we go.

The “Love Ya” Award

The list of blogs that follow are exceedingly charming. The funny, off-the-wall posts get me through the days I need it most. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They frequently leave wonderful comments on my posts and encourage me in ways they can't even understand. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.
Please give a little attention to these blogs. Those who receive this award are asked to pass the award along to their favorite blogs. Keep it going and keep the rest of us in the loop, so we may never be without good blog fodder.
In no particular order:

1) AAB at 27 Dresses In Cleveland. Her dating adventures are incredible. And I admire her for sharing all with the world. She always makes me laugh... like out loud... at work.

2) For every fashionable part of your life, check this girl out: DesignMom. I may not be a mom, but she's got some great stuff going on her website (and it's not all mom stuff). LOVE IT!

3) When you need something to cheer you up, check out Pretty Good. Her pictures are everyday items, beautifully portrayed.

4) For serious laughs, check out TechnicalSupport. It's random goodness that always keeps me going. She's got a lot to say and is one of the best storytellers I know.

5) Alright, I admit. I was searching for bacon and came across I Was Told There Would Be Bacon. One post got me hooked, now I can almost smell the bacon everytime I go to her page.

6) And CC at Sunshine Lovin' convinced me to start blogging. I frequented her page for a while, but realized there were so many random things in my life, I wanted to share them too. So thanks.. for getting it all started. Now I'm hooked.

Now, if I didn't mention you, it doesn't mean I don't follow your blog, or enjoy it just as much as those above. Honestly, these were the first few that came up on the Recent Posts list. heh. There's probably over 20 that I follow regularly, so check back and you'll be highlighted.

Keep posting everyone. Cuz we know I'm sittin here reading them... every day. Beggin for new posts to keep me entertained.

A Day in the Country

We spent Sunday at the farm. I love going to see my grandma. There are so many fun times to remember growing up as a "weekend" farmer. Dad and I would head off early Saturday mornings and spend all day workin (exploring).

Well, there was a bit of work to be done, hanging a new light, cleaning a few things up, but most importantly, we got a bunch of tools for the house! Woo Hoo! Grandma's got at least three of everything. I'm serious... you think of something, she's got it. So we grabbed all kinds of shovels and rakes and implements of destruction. Score!

We also came home with about a dozen tomatoes, a dozen fresh peaches, and four GIANT sunflower heads. In the next few weeks, we'll be takin a crack at making our own sunflower seeds.

Pics to come. I swear.
