    • Utter sadness

      7 years ago

      cocoluck

      My daily dose of Facebook brought me the news - Big O has died. My teary-eyed stare caught the attention of my (often too close) co-worker and she instantly began the "what's wrong" scenario. How do I explain this?

      I could go with the easy = Guy from back home died. Or, perhaps, the slightly needy = My college roommate's uncle passed away. Maybe I should do with the unorthodox = Nothing, mind your own business.

      The truth is...he was a whole lot of everything. 57 years old and they will hold his wake in the high school gym since the funeral home will be too small. The heart of the town has stopped beating. Ron always had a smile, a joke, and a helping hand. He successfully revived our theatre program and music department. He even played at our wedding reception. The sadness I feel for his family and for the community that will miss him is painful.

      I think I will just tell her my allergies are bothering me. After all, she wasn't lucky enough to know Ron.

    • Mother's Day 2012

      7 years ago

      It is the Wednesday before Mother's Day. This is not the day to go shopping for the mom in our house.

      Let me preface this by saying that I don't expect a gift. I've been doing this whole Mom-thing for 14 years. The first 10, I was alone...I bought my own gifts & it worked fine. Now M is older & has someone else to take her to the mall and I still don't expect a gift. I just want them to fold their socks. I'm not even asking for them to do the laundry - just fold the socks and put your clothes away!

      It's the thought that counts, right? Seriously...do not waste the entire Wednesday before Mother's Day at the store looking for a gift for me. These two are speed shoppers - in & out, no dilly-dallying. Why might I ask, have they been gone for hours? Obviously, they have put in some serious thought into my gift.

      I don't want crap! Just clean your room without me asking more than once. Make the bed - even if I am the last one to get out of it. Let me use the bathroom without anyone talking to me. It doesn't take much!

      For anyone that hasn't found a gift for their mom...Do Not Tell Her that you are buying it this late in the week. If you do, you may not have any clean socks for a while.

    • Green projectile vomit may be a sign

      I have signed up to spend my evening locked in a Catholic School with 30 teenage girl scouts. While this may be a dream for some guys, I'm pretty sure something may have possessed me. Do you have to pay for an exorcism?

      The night should actually be entertaining. My group is learning about MEdia. I'm sure I'll be able to work machinima into the conversation. I think I'll compare it to bean dip..."It's a combination of different forms of media. It's just like when your chip goes through layers and the beans hit the sour cream." I'd love to bring my Red Vs. Blue DVDs but I know that the other leaders would kill my dreams considering we had to scrutinize A League of Their Own before it was approved.

    • Would you rather?

      7 years ago

      cocoluck

      I am in the process of planning a lock-in for up to 50 teenage girls. We have decided to incorporate a game similar to "Would you rather?" into the evening. The other leaders have come up with things like Would you rather live on the bottom of the ocean or on the moon and Team Jacob vs. Team Edward. I am hoping to somehow make this better. Any suggestions?

      Took the kiddo to see Hunger Games at midnight. Being a tad bit older than I used to be, I did not enjoy the late night as much as I should have. More specifically, I am not enjoying being at work today. I've been listening to the podcasts & thought I'd take another look at the site. I couldn't resist reading my old journal entries and while feeling sentimental, I bought my star back. I would hate to see this little section of my world disppear.

      Just finished listening to the (rather old) podcast regarding the survey results. I love being the minority! I wonder how many married females were on the site before the men in their lives.

      Earth Day is important.

      We should all take a moment to appreciate the fact that our planet has not yet been blown up for any reason including the creation of a hyperspace bypass.

      Maybe it should be named Earth Moment instead of Earth Day?

      I was sitting at my desk. I know I was completely and utterly bored with the usual websites. One can only stalk old "friends" so long before facebook loses its shininess. Before I realized what was happening, I found myself here.

      I doubt many of my old friends are still around. I somehow missed an entire year. 2009 was fun enough. I got married, quit my job, and moved. At least I learned to quilt.

        I know what you mean about trying to be cool. I am doing okay. I have been working on getting my back better. About 18 months ago, I got hit by a car. I have been on and off on here, but I miss talking to some of my 'old' friends. I remember all the great conversations and times. So how about you?

      Oh I have a quick question for you, and young lady I know doesn't really like wine, so I am trying to get her into it gently. Can you think of a blush or white wine that is very gentle, maybe even sweet, with little or no after taste.

      Truthfully, I think Christie wants to go just to finally get to see Kristen. When she was working here, I worked with her quite a bit, and I may have made a few comments to my loving wife about how I found her to be kinda cute.

      Plus, chicks like weddings, and Christie likes to be a girl sometimes. And a wedding nazi. smiley8.gif

      Christie doesn't necessarily want to go.... (though, there is a pretty dress involved and cute shoes and Steve never takes me places where I can really dress nice...).

      Its that she made a special point of procuring an invite, complete with reception invite, and delivering it addressed specifically to use. Had she sent a group invite to Faurecia - or even a specific group at Faurecia - screw it. But its only about 10 mins away and going won't hurt him and its proper wedding ettiquette, which he admittedly knows nothing about it. S03.gif And I admittedly can not spell. S03.gif

      And now he's going to be smacked - hard - when he gets home for making me out to be the wedding nazi! S11.gif

      Nothing major, I did a couple of things that I am regretting now. Well not really regretting, but they are going to add more drama into my life and I don't know if I want that drama now. But you gotta pay the piper.

      Cancel your credit cards...THIS IS SO FUNNY
      Be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die. This is so priceless, and so easy to see happening, customer service being what it is today. A lady died this past January, and Citibank billed her for February and March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and then added late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00, now is somewhere around $60.00. A family member placed a call to Citibank:
      *
      Family Member: "I am calling to tell you that she died in January."
      Bank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply."
      Family Member: "Maybe, you should turn it over to collections."
      Bank: "Since it is two months past due, it already has been."
      Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?"
      Bank: "Either report her account to the frauds division or report her to the credit bureau, maybe both!"
      Family Member: "Do you think God will be mad at her?"
      Bank: "Excuse me?"
      Family Member: "Did you just get what I was telling you - the part about her being dead?"
      Bank: "Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor." Supervisor gets on the phone:
      Family Member: "I'm calling to tell you, she died in January."
      Bank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply."
      Family Member: "You mean you want to collect from her estate?"
      Bank: (Stammer) "Are you her lawyer?"
      Family Member: "No, I'm her great nephew." (Lawyer info given)
      Bank: "Could you fax us a certificate of death?"
      Family Member: "Sure." (fax number is given) After they get the fax:
      Bank: "Our system just isn't set-up for death. I don't know what more I can do to help."
      Family Member: "Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. I don't think she will care."
      Bank: "Well, the late fees and charges do still apply."
      Family Member: "Would you like her new billing address?"
      Bank: "That might help."
      Family Member: "Odessa Memorial Cemetery, Highway 129, Plot Number 69."
      Bank: "Sir, that's a cemetery!"
      Family Member: "What do you do with dead people on your planet?"


      Thought you could use a laugh today.
