A Round Of Sonic Cherry Limeades For Everyone...........

well, since it is just me here... I will have to take a swig for everyone....yum..... Cherry limeades make everything better. Crappy day today. I have had just about enough of listening to all of the snarky gossip at work. If they talk this much smack about everyone else in this building.... just what are they saying about me when I am not around???? I am working in the land of "Mean Girls". Must....escape... soon!!

Monday ...again.....

I had a pretty nice weekend. Saturday we all just lazed around... not doing much since it was just too hot. We drove out to Waller to watch the sky divers which was pretty cool. I have never been sky diving and I can't say that I want to rush out there and give it a try or anything.... but it is something I would "consider" trying if the opportunity was there and if I had a good feeling about it. I think I prefer activities on land though.

After the skydiving, we went over to Hempstead and visited Frazier's ( I will take one of everything please) and then on to DiIorio's for some fruit and some more tomato plants. If you want to experience "miserable heat".... try DiIorios.... hot does not even begin to describe the way it feels inside that building.

Sunday was not only Father's Day but also my parent's 40th anniversary. It was nice just getting together with family and friends. My parents did not want anything big as far as celebrations go so we just kept it all casual and fun. Lots of food, swimming, hanging out on the deck, and margaritas. Hope everyone had a great Father's Day weekend!!

Please don't call me ever again!!

I have been told many, many times that I sound like a little kid on the it actually worked to my advantage. I will admit that I am guilty of screening calls. By screening I mean that I will usually let it roll over to voicemail if I don't recognize the number. I will always answer calls from friends and family but I have little patience for telemarketers.....especially when they are calling from overseas and they butcher my name and I can't understand what they want. I could just hang up on them I guess, but that would just be too mean. Everybody has had a crappy job in their lives and I don't want to be the cause of the guy on the phone going postal at work or anything.........

I made the mistake of grabbing the phone on the first ring without looking yesterday and immediately I knew it was someone that I did not want to talk to.
Man on phone- "Hello, my name is William and I am calling regarding traffic and roadway needs (HUH???) in "xxxxxx" county and I would like to ask you a series of questions that would help us to improve tax payer's driving conditions."

Me- "OK"

Man on phone- "So is your mother or father or an adult over 18 that lives in "xxxxxx" county available to participate in this survey?"

Me- What? Is this guy serious? How old does he think I am?.... wait... this may work!!! "Umm.... no, my mom and dad are at work and I really am not supposed to be speaking to I better go now."

Man on phone- "Oh, OK thanks!

Sometimes it all works out in the end. :)

I never knew how much I would miss....

tomatoes!!!! I also never realized how many of them I eat. I have a few tomato plants but they can't seem to keep up with my demand. All tomatoes have been removed from the grocery store shelves and very few restaurants are serving them. Mexican food just is not the same without fresh pico de gallo. I am in tomato withdrawal!!!

This kinda scared me a little..... actually alot!

I was driving West on I-10 last night at about 9:30, when something really creepy happened. The highway was pretty empty and I had only about 10 miles to go before my exit. All of the sudden, this big black dually appears right behind me, just inches from my bumper..... I am thinking to myself "Hey asshole, go around me! There is nobody on the road so what is the friggin deal?" I was going about 70 in the slow lane so I don't exactly know what his problem was.

He finally starts to pull around me and he slows down even with my window and he is just staring and smiling at me. What the hell? He could have been anywhere from between 30 to 45 years old and looked fairly "normal." I have no earthly idea who he was. Was he drunk? On crack? Just being an asshole???? He makes some kind of lewd hand gesture and he pulls in front of me and slows down to about 55mph. WTF?????

I then decided it was either go around him or plow into the back of him. As I am passing him he starts honking and smiling and making the "call me sign." Oh crap!! Get the hell away from me you weirdo!!! He of course speeds up and repeats the whole pulling in front of me slowing down process all over again. Why me???????? This goes on several more times and finally as we are approaching my exit....I decide to let him stay in front. I pull off the highway at the last possible second so that he won't know that I am getting off and as soon as he sees me doing this, he does this Dukes of Hazzard maneuver in front of me barely avoiding crashing into the divider. What is this guy doing???????

So, he is still ahead of me as I am approaching the stoplight where I usually turn off to get home. This time I put my turn signal on which of course he sees and he copies. Since he is ahead of me, he turns first and as soon as he has totally committed to the turn.... I haul ass across the intersection going straight. He sees this but since this is a pretty congested area with lots of truck stops and big semis on the road.... he is trapped. Yessss!!!!!!!!!

I take all the back roads the rest of the way home.....speeding just a little (ok... speeding a lot!!) and praying that there will be no cops hanging around to pull me over. I see no sign of this guy the rest of the way home which is a good damn thing because the road to my house is only two lanes wide and there are no street lights and there would be no place to hide.

This whole incident was strange. I honestly have no idea who this guy was and he looked a little too old to be doing this just for fun. I am just going to keep telling myself that it was a case of mistaken identity and he thought I was someone else. Where do I find these freaks and weirdos?!!!??!!! Why???

Energy Vampires

Know any of these? I work with one and she is driving me crazy. Luckily I only have to see her once a week. She makes me feel like crap every time I am around her.... she does not even have to say anything to me to achieve this. Each time I see her, I feel exhausted, mildly depressed, and in a generally pissy mood. I am a good "listener" but I find myself tuning her out in order to not go off on her. I feel sorry for her husband and her son!
