I will never understand

why people choose to advertise this way?
I have seen some poor soul doing it every day this week on m
y drive home from work.
I just don't get it.

While we are on the subject... I really don't understand these either? Especially these days when gas is so pricey and everyone (should be) focused on lowering their carbon emissions!

Is it even worth it?? Does it really work??

another quote from the bestest movie:
It's understanding that makes it possible for people like us to tolerate a person like yourself!

I did not achieve this position in life by letting some snot nosed punk leave my cheese out in the wind.

Ha! Guess what I am watching right now?? The edited version. On TV. The best one.

"Relax! I'm a professional."
"Professional what?"

I will stop NOW because I could go on all day!!

Miss Independent

A few Easters ago I went to visit my sister and her little fam. I was on an outing (picking up bread for dinner I think) and I decided to check the air in my tires and fill em' up if necessary. When I returned I explained to her why I took so long. And she replied " You are so independent. I have no idea how to do that." I chuckled. Well this week I took another step towards my independency. I replaced my cabin air filter.

the old:

the new:
and my glove box even closes!
(it goes behind it for all you non-independent people)

Spring Break

It has been quite the week- I was going to go on an exciting road trip but decided to stay home and work on my lengthy to do list.
But I did take a little road trip, with my friend Leslie, to the town of Luray, Virginia. To discover the Luray Caverns. Pretty cool stuff. The weirdest thing was when you walked out of the gift shop there were stairs that led to the cavern. (the light at the top of the stairs is the gift shop)

Being down there made us hungry. Maybe it was the gigantic cupcake/ ice cream cone looking rock formation...

Or maybe the "cave bacon"...

Or maybe the 2 sunny side up eggs.

Speaking of food- I have heard that the chocolate turnovers at Arby's are quite delicious. So I decided to try it. It might look good but it really isn't. It is just a flaky, chocolatey, creamy, triangle of nastiness. If I were you, I wouldn't go get one. (then there will be more for me) And yes, Anitra I went without you. You had your chance to get one with me and YOU said no.

Monday Manners Moment

Judi- the Manner's lady heard about my challenges with her video last week and decided that was very rude of her. So here she is!

Mmmmmmmm... donuts.

Only only 4 1/2 hours until I can go home and make these. I need to go wipe the drool off my keyboard.

Monday Manners Moment

Will be brought to you today by Judi the Manners Lady!

(as soon as I get home and can access Youtube!)
Because Manners Matter and Character counts!
You know it's going to be good!
Judi has been described as a cross between Martha Stewart, Anthony Robbins,
Sharon, Lois & Bram… with the musical energy of Britney Spears.

Okay- apparently Judi doesn't want to be a guest on my MMM. None of her Youtube videos are working. So click here to enjoy some of her catchy tunes.

Monday Manners Moment

People are stupid. Here is an example of something that is happening right now in my work inbox. I have no idea who any of these people are. It all started with an email that was reminding us to take a survey for work.
**Don't reply to all unless you want all to read your email. **

email 1-
Dear Colleagues,

I know there is so much going on but I do strongly encourage you to take the survey. The county has not had such a survey done countywide in a long time, if ever, and it is important that your opinion is represented.

Sorry for the error in reply. I have redirected this to my faculty.
