Nuff said.

Except that, no, this is not related to my fascination with giant puppets.

Fa La LA LA la or we call it off! [Nov. 30th, 2016|10:13 pm]
Okay lighten up, self.

I've already seen part of Grinch which was the "mister griiiiinch" song, perhaps the best part? And i have heard the Snoopy xmas song in a store.
What songs do you /have/ to hear or it isn't officia!!y the holidays?
What seasonal special do you /have/ to see?

That's it! No more merciful beheadings, no more kitchen scraps for the widows and ophans, and call off Xmas!!

Drink! [Nov. 30th, 2016|09:23 pm]
The plane crash with that whole football team. Allepo. Nimrud and the beautiful guardian lion-men statues flattened. Allepo. (Deserves 2). There is a lot i am sad about today.
I seeca lot of jerk behavior at work and in the world. Sometimes we have to take a step back. One bad apple spoils the barrel. But there are good apples in there too.
Here - i heard a story yesterday that a family was eating at a restaurant. While chatting with their waiter he mentioned he would be spending the holidays alone because his family was in Ireland and he hadnt seen them in years. The family left a $750 tip and a note that they hoped it would help get him there. See? Nice people.

Now- do you drink coffee?
How about energy drinks?
Cocktail of choice?

I don't drink. I dont know whether to tell people this or that i cant drink. Hmm.

What IS the matter with Kansas?

Cleaaaaan ish. [Nov. 29th, 2016|01:04 am]
It is almost 1am and as the Tick says, "I'm doing laundry!"
I tend to latch onto obscure qoutes. "Shoot dem. Shoot dem both" is my favorite from Raiders.
I'm doing laundry at 1am because i can. No neighbors to disturb atm. Do you like doing laundry? Some do. Some like dusting or vaccuming or ironing,etc.
Is there a household chore you enjoy? I like polishing the silver.
How picky are you about laundry? I dont have enough to divide into more thzn lights and darks. (Epic battle!)
How many catagories do you have?
Do you hand wash?
Is there anything that never goes in the dryer?
Do you use softeners or spot cleaners or dryer sheets?
Have you tried the pods?

I got my first xmas card in the mail today. She's a little overly efficient, i think. I appreciate the thought.

What song changed your life?

What movie changed your life?

What book changed your life?

Little depressing [Nov. 26th, 2016|09:16 pm]
Today at work a man came in with a service dog. Of sorts.
This dog was not a problem but his owner... He was a young guy and the german shepard had on a khaki vest with pockets all over (cargo shorts for dogs!) so my guess was maybe the man is ex-military and the dog is to help with ptsd? It was very obedient but didnt hzve that laser focus of a working dog. Whatever. Cool. But today work was Busy! and Crowded! He sat at a table where everyone was crammed in tight and he's tugging the leash to get the dog as close in as possible. But there's no room for the dog between the chairs. So the dog lies down right behind the chair. I'm watching the guy periodically tugging the leash to try to move the dog whose only option is to stand with its head wedged in between chair legs for hours or lie behind the chair where he'll fit even if he's in the aisle. Tug, tug.

Ok, DUDE you have to accomidate the needs of your dog! Move your chair! Or leave the dog alone!
It kinda ticked me off. Nice dog too.

Lights! [Nov. 25th, 2016|09:39 pm]
Are you ready for this?

Okay we may now put up lights, string whatever, fill out cards, bake goodies, and run around like undead poultry.
Brace yourself for the onslaught of xmas specials. Are you looking forward to any?

Do you put up lights or wreaths or ribbons or what?
Do you have one of those over-the-top neighbors?

Are you going to celebrate something else?

Have you ever tried olive oil cake?

What does this mad, mad season bring to you?

What do i get my mom?

Sidenote: you need to check out the gifts at Signals catalog!

Is there a gift you are having trouble finding? Are you searching for one of those weird "hatchimals"? (No, i don't have any.)

It was [Nov. 20th, 2016|10:32 pm]
One of those days here. No one was listening to me. Not the customers,not my supervisors, and not my coworkers. My supervisor was acting deaf because he didn't want to do actual work. And our weirdest interaction was me trying to tell him the thing i was doing and him telling me to do something else i was 3 steps away from even starting. It was like being in a car trying to talk about the sign in a shop window in front of you while the other person is saying, "don't hit the car behind when you back up" and you haven't put the keys in the ignition yet.
Which is how my conversations go somedays...

How the heck was YOUR day? :)
Did you have a weekend?
