The Good, the Bad, and the Tasty

This is the song that goes on forever that doesn't ever end

You get what's behind one of these super secret doors if you can name that tune!!!!

That was the song Little Dude was singing all day and I felt it was appropriate for the kind of day I had. Sad thing is, I started typing this before my leader meeting tonight. I knew going in that it would be a long, bad meeting!

Today was the day that I have been waiting for for almost a week now. The cable company was coming to install a 2nd converter box so we could have our channels back upstairs.

Larry the Cable Guy
That would have been hysterical
was who actually showed up at my door!!!

I'm sure they sent out a letter explaining which channels would be moved to digital, but if it's not a bill, I throw it away. I had to wait all morning for them to come. The guy finally came, set everything up, and even installed new connectors on the back of the tv and in the box outside. I haven't had reception that clear on our bedroom tv in years!!!

Shortly before the cable man came, the world ended I had a bit of a minor disaster. It is really friggin cold and once I get cold, it's over. I CANNOT warm up to save my life. I pulled out my huge Eeyore mug and make a nice hot cup of tea. I was trying to reach for something and I knocked my mug over. Oh, and my mug was sitting next to my computer! I thought I had averted a major catastrophe, but when I wen to type a message to C, all I got was


I do believe I was trying to let him know the cable guy was here but apparently the tea inside my keyboard thought I should say something else. The little "/" marks were me hitting the backspace. I wiped it off and tilted it like C said I should to let the bottom dry. Next thing I know my keyboard doesn't work at all!

How can I chat with C?
How can I update my Facebook status?
How can I blog?

Lucky for me, my FIL gave me the keyboard with his computer he passed along. I didn't hook it up because I didn't need it at the time. Thank god I saved it!!! Now I just have to get used to using it. You should see how many typos are in this post! It's unreal! But you'll just have to take my word for it. I'm anal about spelling and appearances.

Everything was now right with the world! Until......

Meeting from hell!!!

Most of this Girl Scout leader meeting was about the big camping trip that our troop is not going on. But in order to get the info I needed for cookies upcoming events, I had to suffer through it. I have to give these ladies credit, they know how to get stuff done, but they go about it in a back-asswards manner! And from what I understand the higher up peeps are much worse. I think for now I'll just stick with my troop - I don't want to be in the middle of that clusterbuck!

Next month I'm bringing a bottle my travel mug with.....

Oops...I meant this...


Screw it! I'll put 'em both in my fancy travel mug and call it a day!

Steeler mug

Until next time...

I can't get the cold out of my system when I get like that unless I take a hot shower! I hate when that happens.

Enjoy your crystal clear television viewing experience!

My feet are always freezing in the winter-even with socks on! My favorite thing to do is to get into bed with hubby and stick my cold feet all over him!

at least the woman run the sumbitch! We have boyscouts and the men are total dumbasses!

I give you major props for being a leader. I could not do that.
