Cliifhanger, hanging from a cliff....

Now, you're probably asking yourself: "What happened? Did she go to the library? What shenanigans did Toby pull? Where is she
?? It's past noon and I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. Did she go to Walmart?" (broken muffled sobs)
Gotta make you want it, folks. Supply and demand.
I went to the library. I decided to start on the Z end of fiction, since I have thoroughly canvassed A-C pre-meltdown previously. Made it to K. Not bad, not bad at all. Of course, my policy is bail almost immediately after a Level 1 whine commences, to provide time and space for the Level 3 in the van. So I got about 10 books, and I have read 1 1/2 because I LOVE to read and I sneak in a chapter here and there whilst browning hamburger meat and such.
The JOY of a stack of unread books. Anyways.

So then we were off to the kitchen, otherwise known as McDonalds. Did you know they don't have Texas Homestyle burgers out of state? I mean, it makes sense but you POOR other staters!
And then we had to go to the Toyota dealership, because a Maintenance Required light came on in the van. If that light came on in the Corolla, we'd just be so happy that the light worked. But in the new hoity-toity van, no can do. So I took myself, my FULL warranty, my 3 childrens, my homestyle burger, fries and coke, and 6 nuggets and massive twin stroller in and waited for 19.7 hours (exaggeration) and got my oil changed and my tires rotated. Those snakes in the grass at Toyota... shooting off warning lights for routine maintenance. And the warranty doesn't cover routine maintenance. SO there you go. Toby was the delight of the waiting area... and then he was getting kind of annoying. And then he was REALLY ready to go. And then, 12 hours later we went.
After this, did I attempt Walmart? Aw HECK no.

Today, after naptime. It shall be done.

  1. Did you earn your merrit badge for that one? I survived routine car maintance. FYI the dealership is always slow at oil changes. Next time get it changed at Wal Mart while you shop! Well went to Texas Ablaze last night. I really like Pat King! You did not miss to much as far as worship is concerned Kevin is always good but there where really having sound problems and he finally just quit playing and turned the meeting over.

  2. I was with a couple of groovy people, but they were running late...thus causing us to be late. There weren't really any seats (visible from my location) available, so we sat on the floor against the wall. That was great a couple of years ago, but I'm finding out that my body doesn't like the floor or wall any more. Weird. I WANT PADDING! ...anyway. Do the meetings go through Saturday or Friday?

  4. Just FYI: I don't post anonymous anymore, since I made the effort to get a logon thingymajiggybobber. And I'm NOT a heathen! I went to church with the dance crew at Freedom Fellowship! The dancers were incredible and very anointed! That other team that came Saturday night was awesome, too! ...What were they called??? ...anyway...

    ETC - from "eTcetera" - NOT ect.
    So, "I went to get pickles, mayo, light bulbs, etc., etc., etc."

    Love

Twasn't a biggish deal. ...it might have been more tolerable had it not been 10 DEGREES in there!!! Ma'an!! It was great hearing the message Patricia King brought, though. Good stuff! LOOOOOOOVVVVVVEEEE!!!

  7. Warsaw, Poland- A Polish bus driver has been fired for sending 38,000 text messages on his company cell phone in a losing effort to win contest jackpot, a spokesman said Thursday.
    Leszek Wojcik, a bus driver in the northwestern Polish city of Slupsk, ran up a tab of some 94,000 zlotys ($34,000) with his text messages while trying to win a 100,000-zloty ($36,000) SMS contest that ended June 30, Slupsk city transport spokesman Hubert Boba told The Associated Press.

    Boba said a city bus drivers' monthly company phone bill is supposed to be limited to 15 zlotys ($5).

    Wojcik sent an average of 1,200 SMS text messages a day, each costing 2.40 zlotys ($0.86), on his work cell phone.

    Wojcik told TVN24 television he wanted to buy a second car with his possible winnings.

    "Now I'm without work," he said.

    cucumbers being eaten in full before paying for them
    mysterious items showing up in the pile of groceries that we don't know HOW got there...

  17. Now for today's lesson:
    ("I could care less." or "I couldn't care less.")

    When expressing one's lack of interest in a matter, one should say, "I couldn't care less," indicating that one cares so little about that matter at hand, that less interest is impossible.

    The nonstandard use, "I could care less," actually indicates that the speaker does care about the matter at hand and that it is possible to care less. This version is unspecific, thus resulting in loss of emphasis, specifically during situations in which the speaker wishes to have impact in a heated conversation.

    I hope this helps.
