Highlights and Observations of My Day (Friday)...


1) Went to the park first thing this morning (not the goose park) and ended up "babysitting" 2 boys in addition to my own children because the grandmother (I assume) was too busy reading a book way at the other end of the park. (The park takes up a whole block.) Yeah. Thanks, ya old hag.

2) Walked across the street from the park to a yardsale some lady was having. She told me she had worked for the carnival for years. It was obvious.

3) Hannah picked a Dora book at the yardsale, which for some reason, she has become rather attached to, and is cuddling with it in her sleep at this very moment. (Freak.)

4) Ate um, chicken fries again for lunch. But it wasn't my fault, dammit! I suggested McDonald's when we left the park, but the girls wanted the Care Bear kids' meal toys at Burger King. I swear!

5) Was embarrassed when the drive-thru girl was the same drive-thru girl from the past 3 days and she has got to think I have issues at this point.

6) My old company has come crawling back, begging me to do some work for them again. Mwaahaaahaa!

7) Um, ok. So really they just sent me an email asking if I was available for work and if I'd like them to "send some my way," but let's pretend they groveled, OK?

8) Squeezed my fat ass into my swimsuit for the first time (in front of other people) since last summer. DAMN those f*cking chicken fries. *sigh*

9) Grace drew me the best picture today of her and I holding hands and then drew one of her and Steve wearing their matching golf visors. I love that kid...

10) Sex. Sex is good. (Well, tonight's was anyway. Other nights it sucks.)

11) Took my new cell phone to the park with me and at one point, realized I had somehow dialed myself and had a 10-minute long voice mail to myself talking to the carnival freak having the yardsale. I'm so not cool. *sigh*

LOL! I didn't go back to McDonald's for a week last spring, when Sierra and I went on a Big Breakfast Platter binge and after about a week the lady at the window didn't even take my order just told me to drive on up. I wish we had a BK...

Emily said...

Damn, I wish I was having good sex...I mean, sometime when I am not the only one there and all...

*sigh*

PS-You need a chicken fry 12 step program, woman. Seriously...

Because of you I will have to try these chicken fries. Thanks. Your obsession w/ them reminds me of my love affair w/ McD's chicken strips dipped in Buffalo sauce. LOL. Good luck w/ that.

Oh, and Doug finally got me a flip phone bc I was "accidentally" calling him all the time and leaving these long ass voicemails of us driving in the car, etc. LOL

Mary said...

Hey Al and EE you know you can lock the keypad so none of the keys work until you hit * menu, right?

I too think I need to try the chicken fries. M aybe we'll go there for lunch...so much for eating healthy...

Alien said...

EE, That's how I like the chicken fries. Dipped in their buffalo sauce and then in ranch. *sigh*

Mary, yeah, I know I can lock the keypad. But I like to live dangerously. ;)

EE said...

Buffalo sauce and ranch.........*drooling*

Yes Mary, I know you can lock the key pad but that involves actually thinking ahead of time. LOL. I love my flip phone now though. ;-)

Mary said...

Well ya know alot of people don't know about the keypad locks, and on a few occasions I got those lovely 10 mins mesasges of nothing, like Alien sent to herself ;)

I have a flip one now too. Which I don't think has a keypad lock, so the kids can easily call people. They ALWAYS do it when we are otherwise unavailble to watch them...

Mary said...

Oh and I got those damn chicken fries, but Jake locked Clara in the van with the food, and it was an hour before I got to eat them, and they weren't so good cold. So now I have to get them again to actually try them hot.

Scully said...

OMG Chicken Fries... Dammit why must they be so good? LOL at the lady recognizing you! That happened to Jamey once at Taco Bell and he has never been back since. The guy said, "Hey! Back again?" Jamey said if he hadn't already paid he would have peeled rubber out of there, LMAO.
