Get Me Some Snow, Damn It!

I've hit an all-time low in the area of being pathetic. I miss the snow so much that I thumbed through an REI catalogue today just to see people dressed up in snowsuits... playing in the snow.

Yes, I know... SAD! I can't help it. I thought I loathed the snow, but now that I don't have it, I miss it! I thought I wanted this sunny, warm So-Cal weather every day. I was so wrong! Give me some damn snow and 20 degree weather!

Scissors Dilemma.

Today I went to Target to pick up some new scissors so I could do the puppies' grooming. Well, I'm not sure if anyone has bought scissors recently, but they're wrapped in this tough, hard plastic stuff that is impossible to open without... gee, what do you know... SCISSORS! So I had this small conversation with Me, Myself and I:

Me: Yay! New scissors!

Myself: You got new scissors? What for?

Me: Well, I need to give the puppies a little haircut. Now, let's open these scissors. Hey... this tough, hard plastic stuff is hard to open!

I: Well, do you have any scissors?

Me: Ummm... YEAH!

I: Well, where are they?

Me: Well, as soon as I get this package open, I'll give them to you!

Myself: Okay... we just need some scissors!

Me: Uhhh... am I the only bright one here? ::tears open package with bear hands:: THERE! Scissors! Hooray. Phew... that was a close one.

*emmett* ~ who got new scissors today and just saved loads of money on grooming bills!

Southern California Problems.

I went to the gas station yesterday to pick up a newspaper, but by then (2:30 pm), they were all gone! I just needed a newspaper for my puppies to pee on. I totally forgot that Arnold was plastered on the front of every one because he's the new governor of our state. Damn! Just because of the stupid election, my puppies have nothing to pee on! (except of course, my carpet)

Also, at the gas station, there was this teenage girl in there getting two ICEEs. She was filling up her cups, also holding the dollar bills in her hand. Then... (God forbid) a drop of ICEE fell on one of the dollar bills. "Shoot!" she yells and gets a sad look on her face. She turns to the clerk and asks, "Oh no! I just dropped a little on this dollar, will you still accept it?"

The clerk (who didn't speak English... because, well, let's face it, this is Southern California; most clerks don't) looked at me and said, "Huh?!" The frantic teenage girl repeated herself. The clerk again looked at me and said, "I not understand."

The frantic girl tried one more time, "Does this dollar not work anymore?"

I looked up at her... "Of course it does!" The clerk looked back at me, "Huh?!" she said. "Never mind." I replied.

Now... this scared me. This girl actually thought that if you spill a little DROP of ICEE on a dollar bill, you can't use it?! Poor thing. I hope she didn't spill any on her Abercrombie and Fitch shirt and her Gucci purse! Damn teen-aged Californians.

*emmett* ~ who is just a little miffed this week because of personal issues... please do not take offense. :)

Is OB-GYN for MEN Too?!

Today I had an appointment with my doctor. Walking down the hall to his office, I passed several other offices. One had a sign on the door that said, "Lady OB-GYN"! LADY?! You mean... as opposed to "Gentleman OB-GYN"? Man... Californians are smart! Pffft...

In other news, I'm going back to work within the next two weeks. Hoorah! It's been too damn long. I miss my desk! I miss my headset! I miss my Mickey Mouse ears that have my name on them!! :)
