Love is in the air...or the water?

Warning...if you are grossed out by Public Displays of Affection then you may want to ignore this post...

I walked into work today and looked over to one of the "comfy" chairs and was appalled at what I saw...a boy and girl who looked no older than 15 were making out. I had to do a double take and I was disgusted even more the second time. I went up to the counter to my co-workers and mentioned loudly that this couple was making quite the scene. No one has bothered to notice the two kids and their lip-lock session. Sidenote: It was like 10 minutes and they didn't even take a breath. How is that possible? Anyways everyone in the lobby was extremely uncomfortable and I glanced and saw an older couple and they were looking at each other like what are we supposed to do? We tried to turn the music up to give them the hint and after a few of us laughing histerically and practically yelling from the other side of the store that making out in public is totally gross, they finally left. I went and apologized to the people in the lobby and almost all of them started laughing.

After that fiasco the theme continued throughout the evening when two other couples (much older mind you) did almost the same thing. Only they were at the counter paying for their drinks and I happened to interrupt them by giving them their change...I said I was sorry and walked to the back and started to laugh.

Needless to say the evening was filled with laughter...oh and a little justice was served as well. A gentlemen was driving through the Walgreens pharmacy and a cop pulled up and blocked him from driving through. None of us know the real story but we watched him get arrested and shipped off to the slammer.

I am glad I work where I do...if not for the free coffee it's worth the drama besides

The tortoise and the hare

Seeing that my oldest sister is deathly allergic to most animals, I grew up with no pets in the house (if you don't include the countless goldfish that died only hours after the trip home from the pet store). So when I started college I wanted a little friend to bring home.

I took a trip to the pet store and fell in love with a very cute tortoise. Naturally I had to take him home with me. It was great to have rex, at least for the first little bit. Eventually things got crazy at work etc...needless to say I was neglecting my little Rexy.

So it came to the point when I figured that my cousin Jonathan would probably enjoy him more than I would. Yesterday I traveled far to the little town of Orting and delivered the little bugger to the cousins.

All in all it was a good year with Rex but all good things must come to an end right?

So goodbye Rex...I will always remember our walks in the grass on a sunny day, the moments in front of the fire , and late night and early morning chats

One year and almost two months

So I know that it's not Thanksgiving but here are two things that I am so thankful for...

* My daddy (I am totally a daddy's girl by the way) cause it's been a year since the moss killer incident and he is totally healthy. He might be a little skinnier but none the less healthy.

* Hailey she is almost two months old and is so cute. And really that is all that matters when it comes to babies right?

Here they are hanging out...

Isn't it ironic

So in the last 24 hours some strange things have happened...

*I washed my car (it tooks 2 hours because it was really dirty) and about 3 hours later it was pouring down rain...ironic and totally obnoxious

* I went to work this morning bright and early at 4:15 and we went about our business when around 5:30 when out of nowhere the power went out...random I know (we still don't know why it went out). We had to wait until 8 til it came back on...

If this keeps up I might have a lot of posts...

Green Tea...

So working at starbucks makes your life so much more interesting...for instance there is a guy (he's really tall and oober skinny with black hair and pale skin and a mustache that seems like he cuts it in the dark with a chainsaw or something...) and he orders a green tea latte blah blah blah always has the biggest smile on his face at around 5 or so in the morning...very unusual and a bit disturbing. He is very awkward when he tries to have a conversation with you like maybe he was a geek in highschool and never developed his social skills or something?

Anyways I was having a nightmare (I think...?) and it happened to be about this green tea latte guy and it went a little like this...

all of the baristas were behind the counter and he walked in with the mean look on his face and pulled out a really big gun (sorry I have no clue what kind it was it was just really big...). He started shooting at us and was yelling at the top of his lungs that we forgot his whipped cream yesterday. And then I woke up in a panic and was somewhat hesitant about going to work.

Although it was just a nightmare I was really nice to him today and I remembered his whipped cream...

It's Hammer Time...

I tell you...more people laugh at me bustin' a move than they would if they were watching Jim Carrey set his farts on fire in Dumb and Dumber. Anyways this old guy gave us a tip and said something about Starbucks not singing for tips like Coldstone, so I did what anyone who wants to save their pride and dignity would do and started dancing. I started with the classic Cabbage Patch move and then moved on to the "Carlton" and I ended my number with my most favorite dance move...The Running Man.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw a woman (who was African American) and she was laughing and yelling, "You go girl, shoot you got more steps than a spiral staircase."

How many times have you been commended on your "sweet dance moves ?"

Have you ever listened to 101.5? Well if you haven't you should defenitely check it out. Anyways I was listening to it in the back room at work when I felt the sudden urge do a dance move from the 80's also known as The Running Man...I know you are jealous that I am an amazing dancer and you wish you were blessed with as much dancing ability as myself. But that is besides the point. Maybe you should? You might just reveal the dancer within you...

Everyone has a favorite pair of pants right? Well even if you don't I do. Mine happen to be a pair of Khaki work pants. Recently these pants developed a tear in the crotch...I wimpered about this to my loving mother who tried to sew them back together but alas she directed me to the amazing sewing powers of Mrs. Howard (when you read this you need to say it in a low and mysterious voice like you would if you said Superman).

Anyways I haven't had time to take them to get fixed. So I came to the conclusion that I needed to wear them again (with no repairs besides a safety pin). The tear in my pants this morning was approximately the length of my thumb nail. I worked through the slight embarassment of my hole-in-the-crotch and was in the drive thru when my shoe came untied. So I bent down to tie my shoe and I heard a rip that almost made my hair stand straight. I looked underneath my apron only to find the that little tear had gone from the length of my thumb nail to the length of my ENTIRE THUMB!! I had to wear my apron for the rest of the was somewhat awkward (there was guys at work).

So needless to say I am not going wear those pants again...well until I get them sewn up...

It's 4:01 AM and I am frantically running out the door to work. I think I had, over the past few nights, an accumulative of 10 or so hours of sleep. I put the key into the ignition and turned it. Nothing. My car wouldn't start this time was no different than the last few months. The hairs on my neck started to rise when I felt my socks slipping and finally coming to a rest at my heels. "Great," I thought to myself. One more thing to add to the already crazy morning I had. I had a sudden urge to go back into my house and grab a pair of longer socks. But seeing that I was going to be late I had to go. The morning got even crazier and my socks were not helping. I did what any human being would do in this situation...I used packing tape to keep them around my ankles
