To the Melodic Rock forums. Most specifically the Journey one. I swear there are some serious looney's on that board! And have you all gone over to the Journey-site forum? I've always thought that some of the DL fans were a little over-zealous, but some of the ones over on "Back Talk" make those look like normal people!! You'd swear some of those people were teenagers, not women in their 40's/50's. I know we can get a little swoony ( is that a word?) over Joe/Sav/Phil/Viv/Rick, but these women are SOOOO beyond what we could ever come up with! Oh, and they have a "Viv fan club" started? Scary, truly scary!
I had yesterday off- well at least I thought it would be a peaceful day. But the school called- Yup- Kimmie had head lice again!!! WTF! She's fine all summer- no problems- and a couple of weeks into school and here we go again! I mentioned this to the school nurse along with explaining about last year and the fact that she never had problems with this before. She said that she'd look into it. She acknowledged that it seemed pretty damning that Kim would go all summer ( not to mention all those years of daycare) without a problem, and the minute she gets to school BAM! So I spent the day treating heads and washing sheets/towels/blankets. Which I would have done anyway this weekend, but I HAD planned a nice quiet day of surfing/reading/movies. BLEH! I'm going to do the extreme this time- I'm dying Kim's hair. Not funky or anything- her regular hair color. But Lice don't like hair that's been "tampered" with. And since I can't get her to go with the hairspray/mousse deal ( and it makes her hair look really strange anyway!)I'm just going to nip this in the bud. Andy said he'd go for that too, since he goes to her school ( and they spend alot of time together here at home!) He said he'd rather do that than deal with catching them from her again! Don't blame the boy at all! So we're having a "L'oreal" party here this weekend lol!
Aside from those loverly things, not much new to report. Although there's a rumor going around that "D" has applied for a job over at our mail-order facility in Orlando. We all think that she'd be wonderful at that position- and hope she get's the job ;-)*insert sarcastic smilie here* We'll even give her a wonderful going-away party. I wonder if you can fit: " Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out" on a cake??????

Sorry- it's been a week!!
So, what else- OH YEAH! The Funnies! DOH!
............................................. A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class
that in Spanish, unlike English,
nouns are designated as either
masculine or feminine."House"
for instance,is feminine:"la casa."
"Pencil," however,is masculine:"el lapiz."
A student asked,"What gender is 'computer'?"
Instead of giving the answer,
the teacher split the class into two groups,
male and female,and asked them to decide
for themselves whether "computer" was a
masculine or a feminine noun.
Each group was asked to give four reasons
for its recommendation.
The men's group decided that "computer"
should definitely be of the feminine gender
1. No one but their creator
understands their internal logic;
2. The native language
they use to communicate
with other computers is
incomprehensible to everyone else;
3. Even the smallest mistakes
are stored in long term memory
for possible later retrieval; and
4. As soon as you make
a commitment to one,
you find yourself spending
half your paycheck
on accessories for it.
(THIS GETS BETTER!)
The women's group,however, concluded
that computers should be Masculine
1. In order to do anything
with them, you have to turn them on;
2. They have a lot of data
but still can't think for themselves;
3. They are supposed
to help you solve problems,
but half the time
they ARE the problem; and
4. As soon as you commit to one,
you realize that if you
had waited a little longer,
you could have gotten
a better model.
The women won
And this one came to me from our own Hippy Chick ;-)
Subject: The Wal*Mart Greeter
A very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walks into Wal-Mart with her two kids in tow, screaming obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.
The Wal-Mart Greeter says,"Good Morning and welcome to Wal-Mart .... Nice children you've got there - are they twins?"
The ugly woman stops screaming long enough to say,"Hell no they ain't, the oldest one, he's 9 and the younger one,she's 7. Why the hell would you think they're twins? ........ Are you blind or just stupid? Do you really think they look alike?"
"No", replies the greeter. "I just couldn't believe you got laid twice!"
Have a good weekend all!
Peace and Love, KC!
P.S. ( Isn't it good that this is a "p.s."??!!!) Went to the Oncologist this past Weds. Everything is looking great! But I won't be going to get the port out until after the new year. Which is good, concidering I don't think I have any sick time left to take this year!!
