How Do You Do?

I'm going to take this minute to talk about manners. But beforeI do, I would like everyone to understand that this message is intended for all the sickening customers I help day after day, and the few co-workers of mine that disgust me. They of course are not reading this blog. :D Yesterday, I was sitting near someone eating French fries and this person was eating with her mouth open so literally, I could see this persons teeth doing the work. Is it so hard to have decent manners? I mean, come on! Just close your damn mouth when you chew!! Now, my family is probably laughing at me because they think that I have bad manners. My manners are not spectacular, but they are not so bad that people around me want to throw up when eating near me. Please don't smack your food, and don't eat with your damn mouth open. If I wanted to see how your teeth work, I'd be a dentist!!
Next thing, phone manners. Don't just hang up the phone at the end of a conversation. Say goodbye, and then hang up the phone. Nobody likes to have the phone hung up on them. Be polite. Say hello and goodbye, and for the love of god don't eat chips into the telephone!!! That crunch crunch crunch makes it hard to hear your complaining and yelling at me.
When you are in a hurry, it might do you better to not tap tap tap your way through life. When someone I'm helping is tapping the counter or tapping their pen, or tapping their feet, I go slower. I just do. Are you truly so impatient that you can't take 1.5 minutes to check in? tap tap tap. It's impolite. How would you like it if I came to your job and tap tap tapped all day insinuating that you weren't going fast enough? Might get on your nerves awfully quick as well. Sorry for this rant folks, but I'm sure there are some of you out there that have to deal with these same problems. If you work in the service industry, it's more than likely that you experience them every day. Well, good luck with that.

These Boots Were Made for Walkin'

And that's just what they'll do. Give them the chance and they're gonna walk all over you...

So much for that.

I thought someone was something that he's not. And once again, its fallen apart.

and i'm bummed.

A nerd

Hello. I am a nerd. And so are you. Aww. I didn't just say that did I? You're a nerd, uh huh uh huh, you're a nerd. Whether it is because you love Lord of the Rings and have a LOTR tattoo (Go you!) or because you wee your cute little pants when you here the Imperial Theme (Go you!) or even if you are so wild about tricking out your car that you have a neon undercarriage and a TV mounted under the hood of your 1986 Chevy Celebrity, or you can recite every word to every disney cartoon ever made, you're a nerd. Everybody has some side of nerdom. For some people it is their love of music, for instance, the nerds that dance every time their phone rings Usher. For other people, it's movies (Like me). [Since I can't give you a good example of someone else's nerdom on this one, I'll put myself out there. I was so bored in 9th grade theatre class that I memorized all the best picture winners. I can't remember them all now, but I used to be able to recite it like nobody's business. Now I can only remember from about 1967 to now. Those ones before the 1960's were kinda iffy.]
We have all been the nerd in the car singing WAY too loud to 99 red ballons, only hitting the parts we know. Everybody.
So why do I bring this up? To bring you some comfort. And also to tell others that being a nerd is not a bad thing and it should not be held against us. I am a huge nerd. I sing way too loud way too much. I watch Star Wars and LOTR and live my life by the force, and I'm of the Jedi religion! (But I'm sorry fellas, I'm not a Star Trek fan, as much as BJB would like me to be, I avoided that bomber right then and there.) I love office supplies, I can fix computers and printers and copy machines and I love crafts, and I was a drama geek for more than 8 years of my life, and I watch both comedy cartoons and the Anime cartoons, and I own a graphing calculator, so I'm pretty much the geek of all geeks.
And I want you all to know, Nerd, Geek, Wanker, Weiner, Trekkie, none of those are bad words. (maybe trekkie.) But none of the other words are bad words. Embrace your inner nerdom. Embrace that nerdidty, and don't ever let anyone say, "You're such a fuckin' nerd." I'd be willing to bed $1,000 that says they have a closet obsession too. Like perhaps an incomprehensible love for Bill Nye, (or if you're from my generation, Mr. Wizard.) A person could drive a brand new BMW and listen to Busta and Dre bouncin down the street and have a Tattoo of the Pythagorean theorem. (Shit, most of the guys I knew in high school that were labeled as "nerds" are now making over $100,000 a year.) But somewhere in there, you've got a nerd. And I love nerds! I especially love people who can admit it. I love it. Because it makes you cool to admit you're a nerd in my book. You've laughed at that one joke, or once owned a shirt with a Christmas tree on it, or filled in those "Get to know you" emails that are circulated. Someone laughing? Fuck that shit. I'm a huge nerd and fuckin proud of it. Wanna make fun of me? Go ahead, then when you get home to your barbie collection, tell them all about it. I love my nerdom, and I love everybody else's nerdom. If that's what turns your crank, then so fuckin' be it.

Still... Pretty Good Year

Ok ok ok , I know it's only september, and I know that I haven't had a whole year to reflect, but I thought I would take this time to remind you of the new years resolutions you made at the beginning of the year. I have upheld quite a few of my own, so we'll say:

1. Quit Smoking. [Ka Ching! Didn't do that one in the first place, so score one for me!]
2. Read More. [I do that enough, I think. I gotta read this stupid blog everyday.]
3. Escape the RRI. [Yep I did that one too!]
4. Grow my hair long. [I'm working on that one.]
5. Do not diet. [HA!]
6. Buy a laptop. [Do you have any Idea how much one of those damn things costs? What do I look like, a woman with money shootin out of her ass? Hell no! If that were the case, I'd be eating nothing but castor oil all fuckin day!!!!]
7. Start a rediculous blog that takes up as much space as possible. [Proof is in the Webcode.]

So, review your new years resolution and see how far you've come. You would be suprised the things you may have accomplished without even remembering that they were your resolutions!

Wont you give a bug a huggy

As much as I'm sure you all would love a real story about the duke of metal, I'm not gonna tell it. Someone with the initials JRRT did a pretty good job himself. Tonight I'm concerned with a bigger problem. Bugs. Little teeny tiny bugs. Some not so teeny tiny, but the smaller ones tend to annoy more than the big ones. I'm standing here at work, quite peacefully, until unbeknownst to me, a little tiny bug crawled up my leg and had dinner. Now I'm all for little homeless bugs chillin in my bedroom, or keeping warm in the corner, but when they have my leg for dinner, it's another story. Now I'm scratching the hell out of my leg with my dull tipped shoe, cursing the little bugger. (ha)

Then, yesterday, I was getting ready to get in the shower, and there on the shower curtain was this spider. But it wasn't a black widow or something that I could potentially kill with my shoe. No, this was spiderman. I'm not kidding you, we needed a baseball bat to kill that mofo. Now, spiders, if they are chillin in the corner, can live in my house anyday. But when they make the move on me, and want to start showering with me, that's another case altogether. Anyway, I'm not kidding you, this thing was about 3 inches long and about 1and1/2 inches wide. And it was pointy. It wasn't like a dorky little spider, this was a bad ass mofo. It jumped from the shower curtain over to the tile, and scared the bah-jeeeez-us out of me. I sprayed it with hairspray, it just hunkered down and beared it. Mom smashed it with MY shampoo bottle, and flushed that bastard down the toilet. And with my imagination, I still think he's down there waiting for the right time to come on up and bite my behind.
And right now you are all wondering, do I have a point? No. I just thought you'd like to know. And I thought I should remind you to give a bug a huggy. Just give a bug a huggy To-oo-day.

Well, since that last post went over like a turd in a punchbowl, [wink] I'm going to clean the laundry off my piano and play till I feel better. Or until someone throws a shoe at me. Which will probably happen first. I tend to hit those keys pretty hard. Beatrice is watching me and she agrees. Off I go to make noise. I shall return later to tell you a tale of 4 hobbits and one ring. It's called, "The duke of the circle of metal." I think it's a hit.

Listen and watch this.

Listen to every single word. Promises are the foundation of a poor platform. It's actions that make the platform strong enough to stand on. And promises left unfulfilled will kill you.

Watch this. Every single word, and tell me there doesn't need to be some change.

Click HERE for a reality check. [This is a quicktime file.]

Sorry guys, I had to stop showing the movie in my blog because it was slowing down load time for some people. This link is still available, and I STRONGLY suggest you visit the link.

What I'm thinking about right now:

Since I'm kindof at a loss of what to say, and because most other blogs have the hurricane business covered, I'm going to talk about the thing I'm thinking about and trying to accomplish right now. That would be My family History. Kinda boring, I spose. But I'm just beginning, and I'm trying to find my way! I'm sortof hoping that anyone that reads this little corner of the internet will have some information for me on where to go to get the best information. I've gone to the mormon lists, the ones that are roumored to be so amazing, and so far I've done pretty well. I've gone back six generations on one part of my family. So, If anyone out there has done this, and knows of decent sites, please let me know! Also, if anyone knows how to do SSN tracing, please let me know as well! I'm excited to get started on this, and I'm sure there's probably a lot of people out there just like me who are trying to find where they came from! Thanks for your help everybody!
