Crossing Fingers

Craig's List dishwasher

Dishwashers... eek!

My Dishwasher needs a replacement.

Last night Love and I went to Best Buy to purchase a new dishwasher. We chose to go there because we have a Best Buy credit card and I received a 10% off Birthday card from them. However, due to their current Labor Day special, I was unable to do what they call "double dip" on discounts due to my coupon and their special. I had planned on getting a dishwasher in the $300 range including all their extra fees, parts, labor, delivery, disposal of old machine, etc...

By the time we added up all the costs, it was $505ish. When we were ready to purchase, I thought, if their cheapest, crappiest dishwasher was $329.99, then I could go to Sears and get a much more affordable dishwasher while this Labor Day special is running.

Project for the week, go to Sears and get a new dishwasher.

Pre-Georgia Aquarium

As a person who likes to make the most of my visit, I was reading the Visitor Tips.

I am reading the Safety and Security portion and I came across something that should not have to be in the instructions.

"No guns, knives, lighters, matches, chewing gum or fishing poles are permitted inside Georgia Aquarium."

I can understand telling people not to bring the guns and such, but Fishing Poles? My question would be, who in their right mind would bring a fishing pole to an aquarium. But, then again, people go to these things who are not in their right mind.

It just took me by surprise.

Open Mouth Insert Foot

Well, TGIF!

I often have moments of Squeak. However, this morning was extra special. By that I mean, I say things, such as the following, that is a little off.

# 1 - This morning while I was walking into the office I stopped by Rookie's cube because there was some commotion on the other side of his cube wall. I stopped and said, Rookie, is DeszBob being nosy this morning.

#2 - Not much later while speaking with Spice, we were discussing her recent fame on TV. I mentioned how I was star struck and how I was going to bat my eyebrows at her because she is now a Big TV Star.

Now that you have a little more context to the stories, I will explain what I meant to say.
#1 - DrezBob was being noisy
#2 - Bat my eyelashes

Slight changes in the words, but overall, it was big differences.

Anywho, that's pretty typical of Squeaky. Yay me!

Can't wait to try this one. All Fired Up

I think my beautiful wife is taking me there for my birthday. The plan is to go grab sushi to go and take my favorite drink, Vanilla Vodka and ginger, and go make some glass art. I've done the pottery thing before. I've also made stained glass before, but now I get to go and make some different kind of glass. I'm excited. YAY!

It is beautiful and my beautiful wife LOVED it as I knew she would.
Thanks ScrapperG!!!

Joke for Today

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better on the computer.

They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering.

Finally fed up, God said, "THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job."

So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.

They moused.
They faxed.
They e-mailed.
They e-mailed with attachments.
They downloaded.
They did spreadsheets!
They wrote reports.
They created labels and cards.
They created charts and graphs.
They did some genealogy reports
They did every job known to man.

Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than hell.

Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off.

Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld.
Jesus just sighed.

Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming: "It's gone! It's all GONE! "I lost everything when the power went out!"

Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work.

Satan observed this and became irate. "Wait!" he screamed. "That's not fair! He cheated! How come he has all his work and I don't have any?"

God just shrugged and said, JESUS SAVES

Mrs. ScrappyClause

Mrs. ScrappyClaus also visited my cube.

There is a song that goes a little like this....

You better watch out, you better not cry. You better not pout, I'm telling you why. ScrappyClaus is coming to town.

She sees you when you're sleeping, she knows when you're awake. She knows if you've been good or bad, so be good for goodness sake.

Ya know, being the good ScrappyClaus that she is, she knows that I am a musician and a dancer. So I can really feel the love in this gift.

What she doesn't know is that my beautiful wife LOVES this statement and it means a lot to her. So, this will be taken immediately to my home and hung in a very special spot. I believe that there is a special spot in our bedroom where this would fit appropriately.

Another note, my Love has a mug that looks like this....
She uses it faithfully and this is what her mug says....
Dance as though no one is watching you.
Love as though you have never been hurt before.
Sing as though no one can hear you.
Live as though heaven is on earth.
