Polar Vortex, My Ass!

What is the deal?

Temperature ranges for 6 to 65 degrees in less than a  week. They are calling it "polar vortex".

I call bullshit.

I think we fucked up the weather when moon rocks were brought back to Earth. They don't belong on this planet, for God's sake!

We did some thing bad. We should take the moon rocks back. Then maybe our planet will be back in balance.

Seriously, I work shorts one day and flannel pants with a sweatshirt the next.

The "Polar Vortex" sucks!

There is a myth that I have found to be true: the colder the winter is, the hotter the summer. And vice versa.

I bet I melt when it gets like 1000 degrees this summer.

Free Tea Samples

Just fill out the form. You get to pick out your own flavors, or let them surprise you. I'm glad they describe the teas, because I almost picked Pineapple Teazer, but it has cinnamon. For me, that is a migraine in a cup!

Bunk, Funk or Junk

Remind me to check back later and see how true this forecast is:

Aries Money Astrology

Aries economic life could be estimated with the observation of the planet, Uranus and Venus respectively. Therefore, position of Uranus during birth as well as on rotation influences income and position of Venus signifies savings of the Arians. Thus, Uranus and Venus while moving on the way to exaltation affords the best income as well as savings opportunity and on debilitation do just the reverse for the Arians.

Aries Money Forecast 2014

Income and savings, both may mar during this year; however the second half of the year will fetch better income and savings as well. The months of June and July will be highly auspicious for remarkable savings. Expenditure will reduce a lot since, the month of August.

Far Past Christmas

I am wondering if Target has any Christmas junk left, like maybe 90% off. I have $50 in gift cards and they are burning a hole in my pocket.

I should be at church right now, in my seat, waiting for services to start.

But I am at home resting my foot.

I am so going to Hell!

Red Rockers

My son sent me a photo today. I couldn't quite make it out- the photo is sideways, so I asked him what it was.

It was a little red rocker, just like my son had, but minus the rope seat that was on his rocker..

The kicker? It was 4 times what I paid for his 28 years ago!

I bought his second hand for $3 and it had the rope seat.

He asked me if I would string the seat for him, so his baby he might have one day would have a chair like he had as a child.

I told him I would be glad to, but I reminded him that he had complained that the rope pinched his butt.

He replied, "Oh yeah, I remember now. I'm not gonna waste $12 just to hurt my baby's ass!"

I wonder what the people at the antique store thought about that remark.

Yeah, he was at an antique store. I got his at the Goodwill. I don't know whether or not to chalk it up to inflation or the fact he is at an antique shop with his wife instead of the Goodwill.

Trying To Help

One of my friends has been unemployed for several years. He ran out of unemployment compensation a while back. I have tried to help him by making him a nice resume and submitting it to job listings via Monster.

He sabotages himself by going on interviews and talking about his health problems- which are minor. He has applied for disability several times but it would seem he is too healthy and energetic.

I found a great job but he needs to go apply for it on Monday, the drop dead deadline. I have called him and he is supposed to get a hair cut this week-end and go on Monday.

I'm going to be pissed if he blows this one. No more help from me anymore.

I can't help you if you won't help yourself.
