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………


Sitting and Waiting

How’s it going people? I’m not sure who all reads anymore.  I rarely have anything to write about.  Well, that isn’t true.  I usually think of plenty to write about.  During the day when I can’t write.  So when i get home I never can think of those really good things to tell ya.

Some of you know, I’ve started a part time job at Red Robin.  It’s a bit stressful working 40 hours and then 20 or so at the store.  I can handle it though.  It’s only part time, I keep telling myself.

Tonight, was our opening.  It went pretty smooth as far as I can tell.  Wish i was a server though.  I fucking hate wearing a hat.  I’m not in the kitchen cooking, I’m making sure the food is right before it goes out to the guests.

I’m thinking I’m taking two weeks of vacation here soon.  I really want to go to Six Flags.  Anyone want to go?

So as far as updating, I’ll try harder to at least write once a week.  Is that cool?

Caught in the Moment

in October 2003, I purchased a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo.  Ever since I saw the body style and drove one for the first time, I knew I wanted to own one.  Four years and eight months later, my suzy had 97,000 miles.  Never have I had a huge mechanical bill.  I’ve kept the oil changed, tires rotated and the interior clean.

Here recently I’ve been thinking about a new car.  So I started just looking around to see what was out there.  As I said above, it was love at first sight when I got the Rodeo.

Well, as luck would have it, I stopped at Hickory Hollow Kia.  I found a car that was nice.  It was simple, sporty like my rodeo.  Salesman came up and we chatted.  Like I did with the rodeo, I took it for a test drive.  WOW!  It was great.  Sticker price not so much.

Next thing I know I’m in the sales floor talking and then I’m in the finance department.  You would think I would wake up any minute and say wtf are you doing Dewayne?

Nope, not what I did.  I was caught in the moment and signed my life away.  Yet again!  Just sixteen payments away from have the rodeo paid for.  Now I have a few more years to get out of debt.

Stupid Tax!
