Finally, Friday is here. It's been a long week especially since I only worked two days last week (Monday and Friday) because I was sick. The work week seems so much longer when you have to work all five days. Please head over to Mrs. Fours page to read her Friday Fragments and link up with other bloggers who participate in this fine event!
| I titled this edition of FF the way I did because I like pig latin. I remember in high school a friend wrote me a note in all pig latin. It was awesome. Plus, there was just something about getting a note in class or passed to me in the hall way...even if none of the information was important which in high school that information was ALWAYS important! :)
| When I was sick last week, I went to the doctor and they told me I had all the beginning stages/symptoms of H1N1 but luckily we were able to get a handle on it before it went full blown. I like to think that I had piglet flu...the baby version of swine flu.
| I really like listening to Pandora while I'm at work. It makes my monotonous day a little more interesting. Especially since I am apparently not good at grouping together appropriate music...for instance I have a Dave Matthews channel and while you are supposed to put "like" musicians in the station mine consists of everyone from Jack Johnson to Enya to the Dixie Chicks. And since the Dixie Chicks are thrown into that mix it means that other country music besides the DC's filters through my station. Which causes me to have to give out several thumbs downs! I like country music but I can only tolerate so much at a time.
| I recently was at the video store and when I walked up to the counter this conversation was occuring between two employees:
Female Employee: What do you mean it's not in American?!
Male Employee: It is in another language but the words on the screen are in American.
Female Employee: Well, I was about to say we have no need carrying movies that aren't in American. I mean why wouldn't a movie be in American????? And it's just weird that someone would want to read words on the screen during a movie, what's the point in that?!
I stood at that counter screaming in my head....DON'T YOU MEAN ENGLISH NOT AMERICAN?! AND THOSE WORDS ON THE SCREEN ARE CALLED SUBTITLES! Everytime she said American I think my eye twitched.
| I have to go get fitted for a bridesmaid's dress on Sunday. I am not looking forward to it. I can't wait to see the bride but I am not ready to have to try on a dress and see what size I am now...it was hard enough last May but I'm fairly certain I've gained more weight since then. Dread....completely and utterly dreading squeezing my fat butt in a dress. Especially when her other bridesmaids are skinny.... This would motivate most but if anything it makes me want to eat more ice cream.
| I need to learn to keep my mouth shut. A friend of mine hasn't returned my calls the majority of the week because of a comment I made that I now wish I hadn't. All I said was, I don't see why he(her fiancee) pursued the issue if what W(her son) was doing wasn't against the rules in the first place. It was like he was setting him up to do something wrong and get in trouble. I should have just kept my opinions to myself about the issue. Or at least I think that's why she hasn't called me back.
| I have been hungry ALL. THE. TIME. lately. It's annoying.
| Thanks to everyone who wished me well on my test results. I had to reschedule my follow up test because of female issues that can't be present during said test. So now I have to wait until November, which I'm ok with. Avoidance of bad news is ok with me plus this will give me ample more time to think positively about a better outcome than is predicted. Regardless, your well wishes and thoughts mean a lot to me.
| And because I love you guys I'm doing TWO Mitch Hedberg quotes this week!
- "See, I write jokes for a living, man. I sit in my hotel at night and think of something that's funny and then I go get a pen and write 'em down. Or if the pen's too far away, I have to convince myself that what I thought of ain't funny."
- "I wrote a letter to my dad. I was gonna write, "I really enjoy being here," but I accidentally wrote "rarely" instead of "really". But I wanted to use it, I didn't want to cross it out, so I wrote, "I rarely drive steamboats, Dad -- there's a lot of shit you don't know about me. Quit trying to act like I'm a steamboat operator. I know this letter took a harsh turn right away...Hello Dad." "
