Goodbye, Chicago.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

So the gf just found a box of my exs old stuff..

including letters, cards and crap like that. she is not happy.

"why did you keep it?!?!"

"its not like you're getting back with her!"

"I'm going to throw all this stuff out"

"seriously WTF..."

grrrrrr... I just felt bad throwing out xmas cards and what not.

if your spouse is using your pen to write something, and she does not like the pen and says, "this pen is fat."

do NOT respond in 2euce-like fashion by saying "you're fat."

your spouse will not think it clever or amusing at all.

What does your laundry room look like?

My mom is going to start doing her laundry at our house. Mrs Colt is in the panic mode and doing a laundry room makeover. My mom said the last time she came to our house, and waited for the mail for us, there was only beer and orange juice to drink in the frig. I told her she had to bring her own vodka this time.

I'd love to get me one of these


I just moved and forgot to bring my deodorant from my old place. I've been about a week without it... and to be honest, I like my stink.

"its natural"

Well...I just found out I am not going to get unemployment

according to the letter we just got in the mail (my mom read it to me over the phone)...I didn't make enough to collect.


I could "get up" for her cause


I kinda want to paint my car brown with yellow and orange stripes to make it look like TC's chopper.

My favorite potatoes

Red potatoes cut in chunks with the skin on and boiled. Add butter to them on the plate. Sweet corn next to them. That is supper tonight!

Can't work weekends anymore

Almost gave up my Saturdays for the next month for another job offered by a lady. Five days a week are enough. Overtime is for young people that need money or people without a life. Mrs Colt would have worked the weekends with me. We are happy we turned her down.

So, I left a waiter a .01$ tip this weekend....

First time I've ever felt compelled to do that, as I usually am a pretty good tipper.

Upon, taking my drink order, he said he would bring us some bread and our drinks. He comes back with drinks and no bread. I wait. Next time he comes back, I ask about the bread. He says "Oh, we ran out of bread, we had a party of 90 and we ran out. Let me go check to make sure though" It was obvious at least to me, he had forgotten and was making excuses. He comes back and says the bread should be ready in 5 -10 minutes, they just put in a new batch.

He brings our meals and I'm low on iced tea, like so low it's gone. He also doesn't bring any bread. I go through my entire meal without getting a refill on my iced tea, and never seen or heard a word about bread again.

Was the .01 tip justified? I thought it was funny and hope it pissed him off.

Christians v Israel

My dad was right. Never ending conflict! My dad said they have fought since the beginning of time. He was right. My dad cursed the Jews. Cursed is a hard word. He delivered goods to their stores everyday in his truck. This conflict will not end in my liftetime. Whatever. I can't take sides in this conflict. I went to school with people of both sides of the fence. Thank goodness.

Hezbollah is Shiite Christian. We support the Shiite Christians in Iraq. They don't like the jewish community. That is a lock. I just get tired of this conflict. Will this be the end of it? I support both sides in their argument.

I remember sitting under the kitchen table. Casto went nose to nose with JFK. I listened on the radio that night. This is pea shooting! Part of our history. You talk about it time to time. We hope our leaders have restraint. It seems like who has the biggest missles. The news media does not take it serious. I hope my grandkids doen't watch the news.

I just ate four Swiss Cake Rolls

and if I weren't planning on meating a huge meal complete with tiramisu tomorrow night, I'd eat two more. At least.

Last night, I guess my mom got so drunk she fell out of a pool while trying to hop on one of those floating raft beds. I wasn't there (I hate hanging around people who get drunk EVERY DAMN DAY!!!)

Ughhh...sometimes...I am so embarrased about how hillbilly my family is.
I wasn't there...i'm going by what my mom's boyfriend said. Needless to say she has a scrape along her chin.

she was climbing into the pool on the ladder. My cousin from South Carolina, Missy, held the raft for her and when she climbed on, she missed the raft and fell out the pool. She tumbled over the side wall.

I have a hard time picturing it myself but Ron (my mom's boyfriend) insisted it happened (although it wouldn't be the first time he's pulled my leg...but my mom was all muddy when she came home last night and had a cut on her chin)

Saw the Snakes on a Plane preview

I still can't believe this is a real movie.

Today has been a craptacular day

It's especially neat when multiple things go wrong in one day.

Odds on me leaving anytime soon - slim to none. That being said, being paid for overtime will be quite awesome.

I'm never up at 2:00AM on a weekday

not til 4:00. And our bathroom is at the back of the house
