"Well if you could accuse anybody of being downright evil, it would be him." Her friend laughed and commented, “I think anyone who has ever had a boss has said that about them at one time or another.” Anna shook her head, “No, seriously, the man is like an evil genius or something, but without the genius. I swear that he just sits in that office and thinks up new ways to torture us. Have you heard of his latest idea?”
Melanie rolled her eyes, every week it was like this. Anna’s boss would come up with a new “brilliant” idea, that would usually flop, but before flopping would make all of his employees miserable. “All right, let’s hear it, what’s his plan this week?” Anna leaned across the table and lowered her voice. “He wants to try to sell real-estate on the moon.” Melanie raised her eyebrows. “Hasn’t that been tried? Last I checked the moon was not claimed by any country, never mind any one person. How on earth does he manage to stay in business when all he’s doing is coming up with these ridiculous ideas? I ask you again, why are you not looking for another job? You are always complaining about this one, you could surely find something better!”
Anna twirled her blonde hair pensively. Pursing her lips, she seemed to be thinking about what her friend said very seriously. “You know, I might just do that. I wasn’t going to say anything, but lately he has been coming on a bit strong, and I’m getting a bit uncomfortable.” “Anna! Why didn’t you say something! Isn’t there a restraining order on him?” Melanie’s usually cheerful eyes widened with shock and horror.
The following is an ad from a real-life newspaper which appeared four days in a row - the last three hopelessly trying to correct the first day's mistake.
MONDAY: For sale: R.D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Phone 948-0707 after 7 PM and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives with him cheap.
TUESDAY Notice: We regret having erred In R.D. Jones' ad yesterday. It should have read "One sewing machine for sale cheap. Phone 948-0707and ask for Mrs. Kelly, who lives with him after 7 PM."
WEDNESDAY Notice: R.D. Jones has informed us that he has received several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in the classified ad yesterday. The ad stands correct as follows: "For sale-- R.D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Cheap. Phone 948-0707after 7 PM and ask for Mrs. Kelly who loves with him."
THURSDAY Notice: I, R.D. Jones, have no sewing machine for sale. I smashed it. Don't call 948-0707 as I have had the phone disconnected. I have not been carrying on with Mrs. Kelly. Until yesterday she was my housekeeper but she quit!Edit: I actually posted this almost a year ago, but since I was coming up blank, and I figure some of readers don't actually go through the archives, maybe I can get away with it, hmmm?

So what kind of things do you think are interesting and worth finding out everything you can about them?

This a huge topic, covering a lot more than I can in a single, or even multiple posts. There are tons of books on the subject, and yet I feel that it's something that each person needs to think of for themselves first. So, what do you think?

Red = Anger or agressiveness. Example: His faced turned red. Someone driving a red car (especially a sports car, is more likely to drive agressively.)
Blue/Green = calm. While I have no real examples of this, what I've heard is that people in a blue or green room are less likely to get agressive than in red room.
Yellow = happy, bright, sunny. Looking at yellow generally puts people in better mood, while blue is nice if you want to calm someone, if you want to cheer them up, yellow is better.
Black = despair, or sadness. Often times in literature, when someone is depressed, the narrative mentions them sinking into blackness, or darkness.
White = Neutral or blank....self explanatory, I think.
Well, those are the basic colors, if anyone can think of particular feelings associated with any of the other colors, it would be much appreciated.

"Nuh-Uh!" he said, folding his arms. My father and I were surprised. "What nuh-uh?"
"Not your-ami, daddy's-ami!"
Just got to love little kids. And memories!

As anyone who has been in a car with me knows, I hate, loathe, despise, and can not stand trucks. I don't like driving behind them, they go to slow. I don't like driving beside them, what if they can't see me. I don't like driving in front of them, what the heck is that guy doing right on my tail? I don't like driving between two of them, I feel like I'm about to be squished like a bug. In general, I wish that trucks had a road of thier own.

"If could count the
ways I love you, one
would find they are as
many as the stars."
"Still getting love poems and letters from him?"her friend asked, her eyebrow arched. "Yes," she sighed. "He just doesn't give up! And he apparently does not understand the meaning of the word 'no'." Jane shook her head sadly. George was persistent in his declaration of love, and in his desire to wed her, but it wasn't meant to be. He and she were too dissimiliar, and from very different worlds.
That's all I wrote. I never do romance, but those first lines were just bouncing around my head till I got them down on paper. Anyways, hope y'all enjoyed, and I really hope I'll have something else next time.

Hopefully I'll think of something else to post later. In the meantime, Mike, does that answer your question?

So I had yet another weird dream, however I have no idea where the ideas in it came from. What I recall is that..a terrorist, but not terrorist, because I was a part of it, kind of, or at least I knew of the plot, blew up a building. We (me and someone else, no idea who) were actually right next to the building when the bomb went off. I ran, knowing as I did that there was no way I would be out of range when the building came down. So instead I ran into another building, where there were a bunch of bad guys, and I, along with some other people, kicked their butts, before they tried to kill us. End of dream. Actually, now that I think about it, I have a sneaking suspicion I know where at least part of it came from...

What else....Father's day is tomorrow, but we're not doing anything. My father is out of town, visiting his wife's family, so I have a couple of weeks to get him something. And that's really about all I feel like posting currently. Hopefully I'll have something more interesting tomorrow.

And....I just ran out of things to ramble about. So, sadly to say, sayanora, until the next time.

Apparently I should be more clear. It's not working as in, it doesn't respond to any of the buttons being pushed (no, it's not on hold, I made sure of that) and currently all the screen is showing me is "Do not disconnect" when it wasn't connected to anything in the first place! Well, actually it was connected to the iHome, but it hasn't done anything like that before. I've tried hooking it up to my computer, but the computer won't connect, it doesn't seem like there's anything connected. (I'm not sure if that last line made sense, but hopefully you get what I mean.) All cleared up now? Please help!
Update: I just picked up my ipod and clicked the buttons, just to see what would happen. Apparently, it's working again. Though I'm not sure for how long. Maybe I should take it to the apple store to get looked at. Though I also saw a few websites that will diagnose it....I don't know. Sooooo, I'm back at square one. Phbttthhhhhh.

"So after following the path we reached a wide river. Before I could say anything, he went and drank from the water, and this is the result." He pointed behind him to a slack-jawed and drooling Matt. "He'll do anything you tell him to, no matter what it is. Very useful." I stared, and then slowly began to smile. Maybe it wouldn't be as hard to take over the world as I thought.
"You did WHAT?!" she yelled. "How could you have been so dumb? Now he knows everything!" She threw up her arms in disgust and turned away. "Look, I'm sorry, I tried to fight it, I really did, but have YOU ever been under a truth spell by the arch-mage?" His voice rising as he tried to fight panic and anger, and failing at both.
These are just a few snippets that flew through my brain today. I haven't read these anywhere, my mind just will randomly come up with a sentence, or even a paragraph. It's like I have a minin L-space in my head.

GCF: Laws of Cat Physics
LAW OF CAT INERTIA - A cat at rest will tend to remain at rest, unless acted upon by some outside force, such as the opening of cat food, or a nearby scurrying mouse.
LAW OF CAT MOTION - A cat will move in a straight line, unless there is a really good reason to change direction.
LAW OF CAT THERMODYNAMICS - Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler body, except in the case of a cat, all heat flows to the cat.
FIRST LAW OF CAT ENERGY CONSERVATION - Cats know that energy can neither be created nor destroyed and will, therefore, use as little energy as possible.
LAW OF BAG/BOX OCCUPANCY - All bags and boxes in a given room must contain a cat within the earliest possible nanosecond.
LAW OF FURNITURE REPLACEMENT - A cat's desire to scratch furniture is directly proportional to the cost of the furniture.
LAW OF PILL REJECTION - Any pill given to a cat has potential energy to reach escape velocity.

And it shows this big guy with all of these guns and in body armor pointing it all at a little bug that's reading a newspaper. My brother liked it, as I figured he would. What else....oh, he's getting a mountain bike from my mother. I'm sure some of you are thinking, "Why does he need a mountain bike? Florida is FLAT!" Answer: He goes to the state parks that have mountain bike paths. Other than that, there really isn't much use for it in my opinion, but it is his birthday...
I don't think we're doing anything party-like, for the most part my family isn't into parties, and that reminds me, one year, we all, including him, forgot it was his birthday. The only reason we remembered before the day was out was that my father called to wish him a happy one. That was funny. And now I do believe I am babbling again. Oh well, I shall take my leave before I make a fool of myself. But before I do, everyone wish me luck on my algebra test tomorrow, I'm gonna need it!

OK, well, I was going to do a checklist for y'all, but I just took a look at the one given for south florida, and I am not writing all that down. So if you're curious about what is needed to survive a hurricane, or what to have when evacuating, just check this out. We're probably going to do most of that, only if we know for sure a hurricane is coming. The last couple of years we've been very lucky, no hurricanes hit us at all! But three years ago, that was a killer. There was Hurricane Wilma, which did an insane amount of damage, there were still people that hadn't had thier roofs fixed or gotten their insurance two years later. A lot of little insurance comanies went under becuase too many people were trying to collect. The Hurricanes also continued after the season was officially over, and the hurricane center was using greek letters as names, they had run ot of the names of the alphabet! Fortunately for me, I wasn't here, I was comfortably in Isreal. The really big thing we suffered from was that the screening that had been over our pool, now fell in the pool. My mother was actually happy about that, she had been wanting to get rid of it for ages. Now she could, and it wouldn't cost her a dime! Hopefully though, this season won't be as bad as that one. Let's all pray for that!
