I had Cancer

I'm not talking about real cancer, but a cancerous person in my life. You know that kind of person... The one who never takes responsibility for their own actions, is determined to be the center of attention, and associating with them physically drains you. Well last night there was surgery. I cut them off and I never have to deal with their crap again. I was a little anxious when I went to sleep but I wake up now so excited that I don't have to deal with them anymore. YAY!

55 Flash Fiction - #10

Wow it has been such a long time since I’ve done a flash fiction…. but I have sure missed it.

I have made this a continuing story. Below is my current entry and to view the full story Click Here

Leaving five dollars on the table Jeff walked towards the door, and smiled at Jacqueline as he pushed open the door to the diner. Starting down the street he noticed that the little town was starting to stir in the early hours of the morning, and he thought what a perfect little place this was.

I lose

I recently started playing THE GAME with some of my co workers....

The Game is an ongoing mind game, the objective of which is to avoid thinking about The Game itself. Thinking about The Game constitutes loss, which, according to the rules of The Game, must then be announced. The Game is continuous—once a player stops thinking about The Game, they stop losing.

The Rules
1. Everyone in the world is playing The Game. (Sometimes narrowed to: "Everybody in the world who knows about The Game is playing The Game."[2], or alternatively, "You are always playing The Game.")

2. Whenever you think about The Game, you lose.

3. Losses must be announced (a statement such as "I just lost the game" is often used).

As a variation, some players allow a grace period after they have lost once, during which a player cannot lose The Game again or is not obligated to announce a loss. This can range from just a few seconds to half an hour.

I JUST LOST THE GAME!!!!

*sighs*

Good morning world!

Proposition 8

Normally you won't see me post things that are political in nature but I have to post something about this because I am so enraged by the situation....

Proposition 8 was a California State ballot proposition that amended the state Constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman. It overrode a recent California Supreme Court decision that had recognized same-sex marriage in California as a fundamental right. The official ballot title language for Proposition 8 is "Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry." The entirety of the text to be added to the constitution was: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." (Source)


I have to start this off by saying that my views on this issue are not based on weather I agree with the homosexual lifestyle or not.... This is solely based on my feelings as a human being. I think that the passing of Proposition 8 was horrible and a step backwards.

I love my wife with every fiber of my being and I would be so horribly upset if I was gay, my wife was a man, and they told me I couldn't marry him. People say that marriage is between a man and a woman, but I still don't understand. Why is it okay for a man and woman who don't love each other to be married? Why can two straight people enter into a marriage of convenience so they can benefit from health or financial perks? BUT TWO HOMOSEXUAL HUMAN BEINGS WHO LOVE EACH OTHER CAN'T... WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!?!?!?!?!?!

It seems like some people in a minority take things to an extreme and it stops being about fighting for their rights, and it becomes fighting to have more rights than others. That is bad, but this isn't one of those cases. The people who were against Proposition 8 were fighting for EQUAL RIGHTS.

Now on to something else that has been annoying me about this situation. Being in Utah it seems that I am hearing lots about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and their involvement in this. Many people are saying that the Mormon church is solely responsible for this Proposition passing, which I think is a load of crap.... You can't tell me that 52% of voting Californians are Mormon. Now people are protesting against the Mormons, which is their right, but they are breaking windows in churches, antagonizing members as they try to attend church, etc...

*Sigh* People suck sometimes...

Well now that I got these thoughts out of my head I can move on with my day.

New Bumper Sticker.

Saw this in the parking lot at the grocery store...



Now I know this one isn't a bumper sticker but it's the closest thing you can get on a motorcycle.



I remember seeing this kind of stuff all the time in the south but in Utah it seems a little odd.

Republi-baby

My favorite morning radio show The Morning Zoo talked about this story on this mornings show and I thought I would share.

"A new father has secretly named his baby girl Sarah McCain Palin after the Republican ticket for president and vice president.

Mark Ciptak of Elizabethton put that name on the documents for the girl's birth certificate, ignoring the name Ava Grace, which he and his wife had picked earlier.

"I don't think she believes me yet," he told the Kingsport Times-News for a story to be published Tuesday. "It's going to take some more convincing." (Source: Huffington Post).

I don't wanna grow up!

I sit down to make out a check to make an insurance payment... I know mailing checks how medival, but the insurance company doesn't take payments by credit card. ANYHOO... I finish filling out the check, stick it in an envelope, and look for some stamps. I FOUND THE... Super Hero Stamps? Wow how grown up, I am going to send my car insurance payment with super hero stamps. The insurance company gets X-Men and The Fantastic Four.

Wal-Mart Funny


A friend pointed this out from the Wal-Mart Canada website. On the left is the picture that should go with the following description. "Keep that shower-fresh feeling with Summer’s Eve Ultra Feminine Deodorant Spray. It has a light, fresh fragrance that neutralises odour, rather than covering it up. It also contains baking soda and corn starch to effectively absorb moisture. Use Summer’s Eve Ultra Feminine Deodorant Spray daily to feel clean and fresh."

But instead of that picture Wal-Mart posts the picture below... What's better for that itch you can't scratch? A PRESSURE WASHER!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 7 Election


Finally something that will encourage normal people to vote... I think.

The 7 Election gives 7-Eleven customers a chance to vote when they buy their coffee. When purchasing coffee you can choose an Obama, McCain, or undecided/independent cup. Then you can go to 7-election.com to see the results for your state. I was curious to see Utah's results... Obama 59% and McCain 41% Wow I wouldn't have expected that a Republican state would have results like that, but then I realized this is Utah. Most Mormons vote republican but they won't buy coffee. I guess 7-Eleven failed me *cries and drinks his Big Gulp*

Sigh

I hate when I do something expecting one result and I get another one... one I didn't expect *sighs*

The first thing that Jeff wanted to do was ask for her phone number, but he wasn’t ready. “How about some pancakes, with bacon and eggs,” he said to the waitress. “Anything to drink?” she replied. He almost asked for a Jack and Coke but realizing how early it was he just ordered black coffee.

As the beautiful waitress approached him Jeff read her nametag, Jacqueline. What a pretty name he thought as she said, “What can I get yah?”

Fortune Cookies

Along with my Bumper Stickers I thought I would post fortune cookies that I have saved.

Watch for a stranger to soon become a friend

An admirer is too shy to greet you

You have an unusual equipment for success, use it properly.

Bumper Stickers

I often see amusing bumper stickers and I thought I would share them when I see one.

Someone at my work has this one:
Anything can happen in the kilt

Saw this on the way to work the other day:
Try God

These ones I saw a long long time ago on the same car:
Witches do it in a circle

Jesus protect me from your followers


If you see any cool ones pass them on to me so I can post them

Taking a nap

HoooooooooOOOOOOOoooooNK

What a rude awakening this morning....

The little woman bursts into the bedroom looking for clothes... "THE COPS ARE AT THE DOOR AND A HORN IS HONKING"

I throw clothes on, stumble outside and sure enough there are two cops and our car horn is honking. Apparently it had been honking for like 20 minutes. At least the neighbors tried to knock on our door before they called the cops, but we didn't hear them because we were both in opposite ends of the house. To make matters worse the two cops were being friendly with each other and stayed in front of our house for a good 30 minutes chatting...

The little woman called her mechanic daddy and told him our car is crazy and he will come over later to look at it. UNTIL THEN I've take the horn's fuse out so it doesn't piss off the neighbors while we are gone for the day.

Jeff smiled with a sigh. If he could keep busy he knew he would forget her. He needed to.

It was early on a Saturday morning and there was little life on the streets. Passing the retro town diner he glanced in the window and stopped. She is so beautiful. She saw him and smiled.

Owwwwwie

I recently pulled out one of my dog training tricks for the cats..... When I wanted to train Shelly to stay off the couch I would set mouse traps on the couch and put newspaper on top of them. She would jump up, they would snap, and she would run scared to death. Since the newspaper was there she wouldn't get hurt.

Well Fluffy has taken to peeing in our office in the corners or under the little womans desk. She probably has memories of when she was little and we had a little litter box in here when she was a kitten. ANYWAY! I've set traps up in a couple corners to deter her from using them as a potty. I pulled up the paper in one corner and thought the traps had gone off so I reach down to reset them *SNAP* OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW..... It didn't need to be reset. Well I should reset the other one I thought *SNAP* OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.... You would have thought I would learn after the first one snaped on me. Duh

Wow Three Years!

It's been a wonderful three years... I LOVE YOU SWEET HEART!

I'M A FREAK!

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it before but the little woman and I play a game called Neopets. It's a kids game but there are lots of grownups who enjoy playing. Well Neopets recently started a promotion where you get toys and prize codes at Burger King.

Well I'm not interested in the toys... What I want is the codes which are redeemed for items in the game. I know they are just little pictures on an online game but it's so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mindless fun is what I need sometimes.

Well on the way home from work I stopped at the grocery store to get some cat food, because the kitties were starving. While walking into the store I see a brown bag smooshed on the ground with french fries around it. I immediatly recognized it as a Neopets bag and I picked it up. I dumped out the fries and took it home.... I WAS SO EXCITED. What a dork ;)
