Tid Bit blog

I paid $31 to fill up my tank yesterday. $31!!! It was $65 not too long ago.

I'm going to tahoe tomorrow. I love tahoe...i'd marry it if it were legal. Damn Prop 8.

My neighbor had a dream that he came over to my house and i was laying on the floor, dead. i had a robe on that was slightly open and i was naked so being a typical guy he came in to open the robe more to have a peek. When he looked down he saw that i had a "package". Kevin came in behind him and said "Hey! don't touch her!"

"But dude...she's got a penis!"

"I know. We work around it."

I'm not even going to TRY to analyze that one but i have many hypothesis.

I just got back from the bathroom here at work; but, when I went in to the bathroom it stinky so i said "WHOOOOOO!" really loud. When I came out, the darling little accounting guy came out from right next door and said "Tanya! Are you okay?" Hahahahaha...I told him I was excited about the weekend. How can I tell such a darling guy it was poopy?

Dena, my friend, came by last night for dinner and a soak. i lit a fire and some candles like she was a date but that's kinda how girls act when it's been so long since you've seen someone. it was a lovely night. LOVE YOU DENA QUEENA!

Here's an amazing and quite gross tidbit. Last week, I dropped my VERY expensive contact lense down my bathroom sink. I tried removing the U pipe and searching but came up empty. A week later, i walk in to my bathroom to brush my teeth and see a light blue pea-sized orb in my TOILET BOWL! That's right folks; my contact has been swimming with the chocky blind eels and came home when it was damn good & ready. I called the eye doctor to see if it was even salvagable and she tells me "Oh! dont put that in your eye!!" Oh really? Turd remnants isn't considered nutrients for my iris? why, thank you!

See you next week!

21st Century Nimrod

Janet and I are still in the process of trying to settle our case from our accident in January.

I sent a letter breaking down what I thought was fair to receive after their client hit us at 65mph, drunk and it went something like this:

Cost of medical bills: (see attached)
Marathon registration: $85
Massage for one year: $850
Two missed days of work: $######### :D
Underwear I pooped in: $12

I just got off the phone with the rep at 21st Century to, once and for all, settle this damn suit. She asked me to send her the receipt and a reason to be reimbursed for my underwear!!!

hahahah....they have no sense of humor there, i see....

What better way to honor our veterans than to go on a lovely hike in this land of the free?

That's what I thought.

Kevin and I went on a nice 3 hour hike in Lynch Canyon. When we pulled up to the trail head, it was closed. SORRY! That just won't work for this law breaker so we parked about a block away where there were no "No Parking" signs and hiked in. It was rolling hills speckled with cows, calfs and bulls and a few hawks. I was unable to bring Kody becuase of the livestock but really...what kind of damage COULD he do?
Well...i'm kinda glad i didn't bring him. they really were about 5 feet away. So much so that i carried a big stick to whack them on the snout in case they decided to charge. Which they never did, even though they were surrounded by their babies.

It was such a glorious hike and it's been so long since i've hiked; i thoroughly enjoyed it.

Top it off with a visit at Fresh Choice and I think we've honored our vets well.

"Congratulations to animal protection advocates throughout the country for getting the word and the vote out for farm animals! In a historic victory, California voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 2, a landmark measure that bans three of the cruelest factory farming confinement systems battery cages, veal crates and gestation crates -- in the state by 2015. By a vote of more than 60 percent Californians sent a clear message to big agribusiness thatcruelty to animals is unacceptable.

"While Prop 2 will curtail the suffering of millions of animals in California, the repercussions throughout the country promise to be even more profound: As California goes, so goes the rest of the nation. California’s new law against farm animal cruelty holds the potential to spark an unstoppable precedent for change in the way farm animals are treated nationwide.

"Although veal crates, gestation crates and battery cage confinement systems have been banned throughout Europe, they remain common across most of the U.S. With the passage of Prop 2, California becomes the 5th state to outlaw gestation crates (joining Florida, Arizona, Oregon and Colorado) and the third to outlaw veal crates (joining Arizona and Colorado). Perhaps most significantly, it becomes the first state to ban battery cages for laying hens, who are killed in far greater numbers than either pigs or calves."
