Don't react to anything when you're angry

I was a good kid in school. I got good grades, attended all of my classes (until my senior year), and never got into any fights. But I did get in trouble. Once.

It was my very first day of high school. I was awkward and nervous and the school was three times the size of my last school. I got lost going to my third period class and some senior showed me how to get there. Then when it came lunch time, I was overwhelmed at the amount of students that were in the cafeteria fighting their way through the huge line to get crappy school lunch food. In my area, my high school was the largest high school around. For example, Boyfriend graduated with a class of 58. I graduated with a class of 630.

Anyways, I saw my older sister walking towards the cafeteria doors which was where I was standing in line to get food. I opened the door, waved her in, and let her cut in front of me. The Vice Principal appeared out of freaking no where, got in my face and said, “MY OFFICE! NOW!”

I nearly cried. No lie. She didn’t follow me to her office though. I actually had to go to the Principal’s office and ask where the Vice Principal’s office was. He showed me. I went to open the door and it was locked. So I sat down in front of the door and waited.

For 45 minutes.

The bell for my next class rang and I got up and went to class. But I was furious. I was so angry that she made me miss my lunch that I couldn’t think of anything other than that mean VP. My stomach was rumbling and I don’t know about you, but when I’m hungry, I get cranky.
We Heart It

I asked my teacher for a hall pass, walked back to the VP’s office, walked in and said. “You made me miss my lunch. I waited on you for 45 minutes.”

She looked at me really strangely and said, “Who are you?”

I said. “I bet you went and ate your lunch, didn’t you?”

She stood up then. “Did I send you to my office?”

“Yes you did. I sat on the dirty floor waiting and you never showed.”

“What were you in trouble for?”

I stopped pacing her floor then and looked at her. “It must not have been too serious if you don’t even remember.” And then I left.

Three DAYS later, I passed her in the hallway. She stopped me and said, “I remember now.”

Apparently opening the cafeteria door and letting someone cut in line is “completely forbidden” in high school. I explained that it was my sister and I just needed her to help me figure out what to do and where to go. I got detention. No freaking joke.

To this day, I cannot stand that woman. I actually see her in town every once in a while and if looks could kill, we’d both be dead.

Wow. Gettysburg Address perhaps. Always have been interested in that time.

Psychology. I find it interesting.

Chuck Norris...Please send me a check.

Either my life really sucks or I am seriously lacking in creativity because I finally have some extra time to blog and I haven’t got much to say.

Let’s see…nothing really new on the home front except we bought the game You Don’t Know Jack for Xbox, which is a trivia game with a twist (as in, the host curses and makes inappropriate remarks, which are hilarious) and it is really fun. Boyfriend and I have spent hours playing that game and I’ve even won…like twice.

Work? Well work is work. Usually busy. Usually annoying. Although we did turn one of our offices into a gym and I got a Total Gym (Chuck Norris’ machine) off of Craig’s List for $70.00 and it is the best thing since sliced bread. Muscles I didn’t even know I had were sore the first day I used it, but I can already see results. I was really concerned about my flabby arms, and they are already started to smooth out. What I didn’t know though was with just a little head tilt you can work your abs at the same time. And it’s fun to do. I actually get mad at myself when I can’t physically do it anymore, because I want to continue. And another thing I found surprising was that it stretches your back out and feels sooooo good. Especially since I sit at a desk every day and my back and neck get stiff.

Wow…ok anyways, enough about the Total Gym.

My little sister rescued a dog from a married couple that buys dogs, breeds them, and then locks them in a crate until they are ready to breed again. Horrible in home puppy mill. She is two years old and her name is Athena and she’s already had two litters of puppies. They say she’s an American Bulldog, but I think she looks like a Boxer. But I am so happy that Athena has found a loving home. My Bowen and Athena have a play date right after Bowen gets neutered. (Yes, I’ve decided on neutering.)

Ok, for someone with nothing to say, this was an unnecessarily wordy post. Trivia anyone? The Giggle Button hasn’t been changed in like two weeks so let’s get someone new on there!!

What is Mulder's first name in 'The X-Files'?

Hi GUYS!!!

Ah, bloggy world, how I have missed you. I was beginning to think I'd never get to blog again with the way my work schedule has been!

But for now, I'm back. I hope.

Last week, I told you guys that I had gotten Boyfriend a SUPER AWESOME surprise but left you hanging about what it was. Well Saturday, I took him to see his favorite movie in the whole entire world turned into a play/musical. Willy Wonka. It was AMAZING. We had so much fun and I really wanted to take an Umpa Lumpa home with me but Boyfriend said I couldn't.

I highly recommend going to ANY play for a date, because its something different and sometimes you can catch one that costs no more than going to a movie.

Anyways, I have a dilemma going on about chopping my dog's balls off  getting my dog neutered. He has a vet appointment on Thursday for his annual check up and I told them that I wanted to talk about getting him neutered. I know all of the benefits and what not, I mean, he's 5 years old and they preach it to me every time I go there, but the COST IS RIDICULOUS. I don't just have $300 laying around. I wish I did.

It just makes me so mad that you are always hearing from vets...and Bob spay and neuter your pets because of animal overpopulation, but how do they except people to afford it?

And another thing...why is it that everyone is always "America is so overweight, children are obese, no one is active, blah blah blah" but it cost more money to buy a salad than a cheeseburger and more money to buy a treadmill than a game console and a couch combined.  I think it should be a law that healthy food is CHEAPER than fattening food. You cannot tell me that it's more expensive to grow a head of lettuce than it is to raise a cow.

Yet we are criticized for being "Fat Americans."

Something has got to give. I paid $12.00 for a salad the other day where they sell whole pizzas for $5.50.

Ok, I'll shut up now.

P.S. I missed you guys.

{one} scruffy or clean shaven?

Scruffy please unless we're talking about my legs.

{two} what’s your favorite sundae topping?

Caramel. Yummy.

{three} do you own slippers?

Yes, I have hardwood floors in my house. Slippers are a must.

{four} did you ever have a tree house?

Nope. I want to build one though when I get my own house. Even if I don't have kids.

{five} how you do relieve stress?

Usually just relaxing and playing music works for me.

{six} what’s your favorite dr. seuss book?

Green Eggs and Ham

{seven} have you ever taken dance classes?

No, but I'd love to.

{eight} which do you use more: the thesaurus or the dictionary?

the thesaurus.

{nine} what’s your favorite form of exercise?


{ten} what’s the longest you’ve ever waited in line?

I'm not sure, but I went to Universal Studios once and waited in line for hours to ride Back to the Future. So probably that one.

Surprises make Mondays a whole lot better

I know I've been like a completely sucky blogger lately, but I am hoping things slow down soon so I can get back to all of my friends.

In the meantime.... look what Dad made me!!!!!

How freaking cool is that?

Caller's Revenge Part 2

The crazies have gotten a hold of my cell phone number. If you need caught up on my weird phone conversations, you can go here. 

(By the way...welcome to my new followers!!)

They seem to follow me around and last night was a perfect example. Around 11:30, after I had already been asleep for a while, I get the following phone call.

Me: This better be important.

Female Caller: Dude, I'm calling from Brax (?) and two of our people are missing and your phone number is written on my table. Do you know where they are?

Me: What? Where are you calling from?

Caller: Brax. Dude, do you know where these people are? John Smith and Jane Smith?

Me: I don't know what you are talking about.

Caller: Your phone number is written on the table, dude. In big bold writing and says Jack above it.

Me: Do I sound like a Jack? And stop calling me dude.

Caller: I'm sorry to bother you.

So then I went back to sleep. About an hour later, I get another phone call from a different number. I answer it and this time it was a male caller.

Caller: Can you please tell me where my friends are? We woke up and they are missing.

Me: I have no clue what you are talking about.

Caller: Just tell me where Jane and John are.

Me: I wish I could so that you guys would stop calling me.

Caller: Your phone number is written on a pizza box that was sitting on our table. Why would your phone number be there if they aren't with you?

Me: I wish I knew.

Caller: Well if you're going to get an attitude, I'll let you go back to sleep.

I hung up. Then at about 4:00 pm today...I get yet another call from the same guy.

Caller: Who is this?

Me: Once again, I do not have your friends, I don't know where they are, and I think maybe you should call the police if they are still missing.

Caller: Your phone number is written on our table!!

Me: Yeah, I get that and I'm just as confused as you are, but I promise that no matter how many times you call, I still won't know who or where Jane and John are.

Caller: If you see them, please tell them to call us.


I have yet to hear back from them, but I'm just waiting on the police to call and ask me where these people are.

I hate taking life seriously

So random.

It has been a hectic few days.

I am going to be doing a lot of traveling for work over the course of the week, so I probably won't be around too much.

I am beginning to stress a bit and as I've said before, my work generates little stress. That's beginning to change with the new duties I've taken on. I don't like it. At all.

But my vacation is coming up in May and Boyfriend and I have our year anniversary coming up and I got him the COOLEST present ever. I'll tell you guys what it is after next week. Just in case he happens to read this. So for now, everyone take care and be safe. I'll be back soon and I hope you won't miss me too much. more thing...Pencilgirl over at Conquering the World gave me an award!

Thank you so much!! If you haven't checked out her blog, please do so. It's a wonderful read.

I have already gotten this award so if you'd like to see me be a good girl and follow the rules, go here.

Passing Notes

I totally ran out of room and I needed to add something. Dad and I went to dinner last night and we got into a debate about who would win in a fight between Clint Eastwood and John Wayne. Help us settle this.

Happy Friday!

Edit: forgot to add the job story link! Here ya go!

Giggle, Wiggle, and Jiggle

I got a package in the mail yesterday. 

(I lost Twilight in the move and HAD to replace it)
I ordered these from Amazon a while ago, mostly to get the new Maximum Ride book (Angel) and they finally came in. I had kinda forgotten about them, but I was sooo excited when I opened them. I'm already halfway finished with Angel.

Ok, that was totally off subject. Anyways.... last week I asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up.

 48% of you wanted to be a teacher and absolutely no one wanted to be an Astronaut. Also, 20% of you actually became what you wanted to and that is awesome! I wanted to be a Zoo Keeper when I was younger. And then a vet. And then a teacher. And then a lawyer. Pretty big change, huh?

According to a survey on Forbes, the number one career choice for 5 year olds is Superhero. Why in the hell didn't I put that on the list??

Anywho, Hed won the Giggle Button trivia this week by correctly answer the question What do Homer Simpson and Elvis have it common? There were a lot of great guesses *cough* Mrs. Hyde *cough* but the answer I was looking for was that they both had a daughter named Lisa Marie. Congrats, Hed! Everyone go check out who she picked for the Giggle Button. It's a new one for me!

Weekly recommendation this week goes to a new blog I've stumbled upon but am loving already. She makes me laugh and she's terribly cute. Go check her out!

FACS Teacher Jenna

And last but not least, I believe I am going to take a break from the weekly Giggle, Wiggle and Jiggle. I am going to start linking up with Meg on Fridays for the handwritten notes and I do Wee Bit Wednesdays. I have also been seriously slacking with weekend posts so I need to make room for actual posting. I will probably still do the trivia because I like letting my readers pick who goes on the Giggle Button, but no more polls for now.

Have a happy Thursday!

Have a laugh

I have made an awesome discovery. Ok, well it was actually Boyfriend's discovery but I'll just pretend it was me. He was trying to show me the game trailer to Dead Island because he knows how much I LOVE zombie games when we came across this.

This dude  makes these awesome videos where he adds very literal lyrics to trailers and its hilarious. I know a lot of you aren't gamers but I also know that a lot of you enjoy Harry Potter.

And maybe some Twilight?

I hope the videos worked. If not, let me know. Also, thank you all SOOOO much for your advice yesterday. I got so many great thoughts. I will keep you all updated on what happens.

BUT WAIT! There's more! Trivia time!

What do Homer Simpson and Elvis have in common?
