Picture it! The year was 1998...ish. I was a young(er) girl in my Sophmore year of hike school. If you had asked me a year or two before I would have said that things like that were childish and completely obnoxious. Not only that, but they should be avoided at all costs. I don't remember my first time. I only remember I had to watch it everyday when I got home from school... First thing.
I would watch faithfully, and my seester CQ found out about it. I guess it didn't help that I had the lunch box, that was probably the dead give away ;D No more closet fannery for me. By the time I'd headed off to college I'd been deprived for over a year outgrown my childish ways...
Or so I thought.
The lunchbox came with and was repurposed as a container for my hair accoutrements. One of my dorm neighbors remarked about it and the show's intended audience. She also divulged an affinity for certain Annie-May. I was a little surprised by the intended audience part. She also informed me that my show was one that was particularly scandalous.
However, having watched it on American programming intended for youngsters it had been edited for time and content...yay commercials!
A few years later I had a roommate who also enjoyed the show and in fact had copies in her possession! This discovery was also accompanied by a slight feeling of vindication.
Skip ahead a few more years to bring us current.
In a fit of boredom back towards the beginning of the year, when I first came up with the brilliance that was my remember the time, video blogging, excuse for yootoobe surfing, I found it! Not only did I find my show, but the continuing story. I have since been obsessing finding time here and there to bring this tale to a successful close. At this point in my life however, the dynamics of the villainy and heroism are not necessarily what drives me to keep watching, but the underlying love story.
That's how long it will be until I get to see my seesters, and precious nieces and nephews. The only thing standing in my way is another day of work, an empty suitcase, and the release of Indy #4.
In other news, I recently discovered from a dear friend of mine that I live in a secret area 51-esque zip code. When she tried to put in the shipping addy it came back to her as an invalid zip code. She even verified with the handy dandy USPS that it was in fact legit. However due to the level of security clearance needed to access my zip code they could not acknowledge that it existed. Thus confirming her already sneaking suspicions.
I have to say that I am nervous and a little excited to see what exactly I will be receiving in the mail slot and the company that it came from... Mostly I want to know what kind of crazy ochos company doesn't keep up with the good ole USPS? Who by the way gets mad bonus points in my book due to their issuing of St@r W@rs postage. The one beauty of sorting mail for my department. I get teh coolest stamps for my personal collection.
I was born on Eliza Doolittle Day and share the same birthday as Cher. Wahoo for me! This was the only movie/vid that came to mind when I thought of the birthday thing and while I am several years past 16 I still enjoy this movie...ah Jake Ryan Oh yes, watch for me on the stand above everyone else at 4:20'ish ;D
*********UPDATE********** I was also just informed that I share a birthday with one of my favorite bloggers!
Or they might as well have! This morning whilst driving in to work I couldn’t resist toting along my brand new box of cereal. (Super Tasty p to the s.)
I started to put it in into the passenger seat where I nestle most of the things I need quicker/easier access to during the rush hour jam session. The thought that then popped into my head was ”…I’d better put this right beside me…One good stop will send it spilling all over the place. So I wedged put it betwixt myself and the arm rest.
I knew I loved this cereal.
So I successfully made the first stop and headed on my way. As I pull up to the stoplight to enter the love hate relationship that is the freeway, the cereal box decided to mistake the floorboard of my car for a giant red cereal bowl.
The ten second rule did soo not apply to this situation.
I do not love this cereal.
Now I really will have to take my car to the carwash. Hopefully they won't have the urge to give it a milk bath.
I know it's Mother's Day, but this was one of the shows I used to watch with my sisters. I still know the theme song, but it's not difficult to remember considering it's only two phrases repeated over and over.
OK so I know some of you didn't read the last post, but whatev, It's your prerogative. This one is from planning a meeting. Rule of thumb: don't CC the supervisor... Check!
Again start at the bottom...
Physcokity ok J Green gets the subs, chips, and the hex
>>> John Paul 7/23/2007 11:19 AM >>> yeah, she speaks some crazy Polish, and gives you this look like she is putting a hex on you.
>>> J Green 7/23/2007 11:18 AM >>> oh and if you'd like me to order I will. The lady there speaks Polish and is really hard to understand. I order there all the time though.
>>> Physcokity 7/23/2007 11:15:03 AM >>> I got the room and sent the invitations and I'll order the food tomorrow, but the minutes are all yours :D
>>> J Green 7/23/2007 11:12 AM >>> but i just picked the lunch! i have to do everything???
>>> Physcokity 7/23/2007 11:05:17 AM >>> you, b/c you are the one doing the minutes
>>> J Green 7/23/2007 11:04 AM >>> who is the person who does that form thingy for the meeting this month?
>>> John Paul 7/23/2007 10:59:43 AM >>> I want to talk about for 5 minutes on our relationship with the Sales reps and Customer service reps from across the street and how to better relations, and respect.
>>> Physcokity 7/23/2007 10:55 AM >>> J Green, Where did you want to get lunch from?
So... I am guilty of attempted attention whoring...Bad-ish Day? Over.
My first summer working here we would group email each other for funsies and for various other reasons. Most of this group input would always take it's own little tangent. Anyway in going through some old emails to "purge" my inbox I came across this one thread in particular regarding a fellow employee's birthday....
I hope it makes you laugh...just a little. Sadly you have to start at the bottom and read it in reverse, and this is sad b/c I'm just that lazy!
John Paul you are way too funny girl!
>>> Physcokity 7/20/2007 9:02 AM >>> adjusted to a daily rate, by the time mo's b-day rolls around it equates to roughly $.01 ;) I could swing that
>>> John Paul 7/20/2007 8:58 AM >>> ugh!
>>> Physcokity 7/20/2007 8:54 AM >>> inflation is roughly 4% ;)
>>> John Paul 7/20/2007 8:53 AM >>> With inflation it can be $12.50
>>> J Green 7/20/2007 8:51 AM >>> 10 bucks
>>> John Paul 7/20/2007 8:49 AM >>> ok, next question. How much do y'all want to put in, or can put in. I can throw down 150 Pesos!!
>>> Physcokity 7/20/2007 8:44 AM >>> Not for lack of thought...more like lack of fundage...
>>> John Salinas 7/20/2007 8:44 AM >>> So, you would throw out a Ferrari or Bentley with 22 inch rims?
>>> Physcokity 7/20/2007 8:42 AM >>> Yes I do understand the annoyance with the lack of thought in whatever we are getting her, but I would rather get her something she would like and use instead of something that she might end up throwing out later.
>>> J Green 7/20/2007 8:39 AM >>> i love gift cards, i'd much rather get a gift card than something i don't use! i'm horrible at buying gifts. i only get people gift cards. my girlfriend hates me but she gets over it after a few months.
>>> John Paul 7/20/2007 8:28 AM >>> That doesn't mean anything if we don't know where the gift card is from.. Give me a second idea, second option. We got brains to figure this out. Come on! It has to be something that will make her forgive us for the thing we're going to do to her desk.
>>> J Green 7/20/2007 8:24 AM >>> gift card. can't go wrong with a gift card.
>>> John Paul 7/20/2007 8:23 AM >>> Now, we need solid ideas.. and even if you want to buy whipcream and fill her desk up with it and a cherry on top, we can't do that! Darn!! So, use your cabezas!
>>> Physcokity 7/20/2007 8:15 AM >>> Darn I was gonna say we could let her take the rooster (long story, a post for another day maybe) home with her...
>>> John Paul 7/20/2007 8:14 AM >>> Listen guys, if you don't know Mo's bday is coming up on July 30th, and we all know she is getting old.. Ha ha.. Shhhh don't say anything. Well, I was thinking if y'all want to pitch in and we can get her something. Anyone have any ideas??? I can toss in some Cash, but I want to hear your ideas, but nothing too crazy, and no animals. Ok, not everyone speak at once.
Do you ever have days where you're sure that if you fell off the face of the earth no one would notice except for maybe the dog? Yeah it's one of those. I am also in the middle of moving and I have to say I thought it would have taken a lot longer to get all my crap rounded up, but I'm sure with whatever's left I'll probably have about five more trips.
I think I'll solve my probs by watching a movie after one more trip.
