Target Conversations

At Target today....

H - "Ok, I think that's all I need. You need anything else?"
M - "Yeah, I need some shampoo."
- thinking -
"Why do they call it shampoo?"
H - "Well, I don't know, hun."
M - "Poo??"

He does make a good point...

I love country music...

You want to know why? Cause you just can't help but smile when you hear a song with lyrics like:

'Cause there ain't nothin' like the sound of a cooler slushin' on the bed of yer truck

Don't it sound so good?

What in the ?!

We got up early this morning... gotta take Dixie to pass her over to Brooke for the next couple weeks since Matt and I will be in Vegas (woohoo) and then Boston for Thanksgiving.

Anywho... we got up early this morning.
I peeked out the window...
There's snow on the cars and the roofs!!
It's November 16th!!
I'm not ready for this...

Thoughts from the Hampton

It's Thursday...
Here's my thoughts as I sit in my hotel room in Albemarle, NC.

- I am thankful for Hampton Inns... and being a Diamond VIP. Not only do they have the best hotel beds of any other hotel chain, but with the VIP status, I get a bottle of water, something salty and something sweet. Peerfect!

- I love whoever invented Downy Wrinkle Releaser and then thought to sell it in a travel size bottle.

- I love my husband for doing the dishes, laundry and cleaning the apartment so I can come home to a clean home and relax! He really is the most amazing man I've ever met.

- It should be illegal for hotels to not have adequate Coke machines... second night in a row. This is a problem, people... I have needs.

- The old bachelor's "The Drs" talk show is a little odd to me...

- I think I might grow my hair out. I tried this once before and it drove me nuts, but maybe I can make it this time!

- Sometimes, you just have to stop everything even though it's only 4pm and crawl into bed with a good book. I think I need to do that now...

You Can Vote However You Like...

Spread the Wealth?

So, I just saw this on some random guy's Facebook page. I don't know him, so I don't know if this is really something he did or if it's just a "story" he's telling. But either way, I like it...

Yesterday on my way to lunch I passed one of the homeless guys in that area, with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money."

My waiter had on a "Obama 08" tee shirt.When the bill came, I decided not to tip the waiter and explained to him while he had given me exceptional service, that his tee shirt made me feel he obviously believes in Senator Obama's plan to redistribute the wealth. I told him I was going to redistribute his tip to someone that I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. He stood there in disbelief and angrily stormed away.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $3 and told him to thank the waiter inside, as I had decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy looked at me in disbelief but seemed grateful.

As I got in my truck, I realized this rather unscientific redistribution experiment had left the homeless guy quite happy for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn.

Well, I guess this redistribution of wealth is going to take a while to catch on, with those doing the work. It looks good in principle but not in practice.
