or is it cold outside?   Burr! I am freezing! Can someone turn the heat back up?  I looked at the thermometer for outside and it reads 20 degrees!

Then I went to and the low for tonight is 11.

If it is going to be this cold, there shoudl be snow on the ground!

Phone Calls and Minutes

It is a daily regimen.  Many people use them for business, many for personal, many use them in place of the home phone.

Yes, I am talking about cell phones.

How many of you use them instead of a home phone?  Do you put your number down for everything you sign up for?  Bills, Sweepstakes, etc…?  How about those anonymous calls that come up unavailable or restricted?

I’m sick and tired of my number being dialed and not knowing who is on the other line!

I am not going to answer my cell phone for no number I do not know!  Hello, did you know you are calling me during peak time and using MY precious minutes that I am paying for?  Did you know I have a voicemail box you can leave a message and tell me who you are?

I’ll be more than glad to talk to you if I know who it is.  Otherwise, QUIT HARASSING ME!!!!

How these people get my number I do not know!  I have a home phone and it’s the number I put down for all contact information.


New Phone

It’s time for an upgrade.  I’ve was eligble for an upgrade in September.  However, it wasn’t a good time financially.  Now I can afford it and was going to go for the LG Dare. Then verizon put a kink in my decision.

Verizon has announced a new blackberry phone that should rival the Iphone.  oh what to do, what to do.

Dear Far Sighted,

While I really appreciate your passion for your right sighted views. I also greatly respect you decision to follow that path.  However, please don’t just dump your off the wall remarks on my ears.

Even though I hear the words coming out of your mouth, they flow in one ear and out the other. 

Grant it, I don’t voice my opinions over yours.  I should.  It’s probably out of fear that I dont’ have enough information to back up what I say.  Or, I just would rather not argue over it.

BTW, did you know you work with a gay man?  So what do you have to say now?  Thought so.

Let Me Just Say This

It feels good today to know Alabama is now ranked number 2.  LSU is underneath them by one.  They are number 3.  My fellow blogger Brett is a HUGE LSU fan.  I bet he isn’t liking the fact that LSU is below Alabama.  🙂

Yes, indeed, I am bragging a bit.  Who wouldn’t though? Alabama hasn’t been this good in quite some time.  I’m thinking that Alabama and the Tennessee Titans are going to go all the way this year!

Of course, I could be counting my chickens before they hatch.  It’s fun though.

Ok, I’ll admit to it, I couldn’t commit.  With that said.  Today, I’m happy because I get to start my next college semester.  🙂  Yippee!  Although the two classes I’ve chosen to take will probably kick my arse!

Wish me luck!

August 08 Happiness Challenge Day 2

Day two should really be day 5, but who is counting?  Certainly not me.

You know, many of us have no idea what civilization was like back in the early days.  Well, I suppose some might.  Especially if you have older parents, grand parents or even great grand parents.

I’m sure back in the day the heat wasn’t as big a deal as it is today.  Today’s world has Conditioned air.  Which controls the temperture in the places we frequent the most.

The air was out today at work.  Yuck!

Now, I am home.  With Air Conditioning!  I am happy to be home.

Happiness Challenge Day 1

I know I am a bit late. Four days late, but I don’t think it is to late to participate. 🙂 I hope you don’t mind

Today, I was a bit confused. I was a bit down. I was torturing myself with downright depressing thoughts, but then I remembered all the wonderful people I know. I remembered where I was ten years ago. I remembered that I am who I am because of all the stuff that went on in my life.

My life is much better today, than ten years ago. Ten years ago, I moved to Tennessee and started a new life.

Today, I installed a new CFL bulb.

Can’t Catch A Break

Of all the times I stop at this place, I didn’t tonight.  Of all the times, who is sitting there waiting for me?  La Vergne Police, that’s who.

That’s right folks, your favorite bus driver just got his first ticket in over 7 years.  The officer was very nice, seemed a bit nervous.  It could have been her first day on the job, not sure.

You know, I really think our police officers do a wonderful job, I really think they don’t get the respect they deserve. Honestly!  I admit, I did not stop completely.  However, I did not just flat out run the stop sign.  I almost stopped, that should account for something.

Hell, it should have at lease counted as a warning.  The officer could have just said, “sir, this is just a warning” “please stop, completely, then turn” but no, it is going to cost me $95.00 @$#$%#$  Of course, I have no money, it’s summertime and money is tight until that first bus check………
