lies and deception? “fresh mint taste” my ass…and don’t let the color fool you, either. this stuff sets my mouth on fuk’n fire every time. i thought i’d get used to it, but it almost makes me cry still after 2 weeks later. scrapping for something else. what a waste. i should send it to corporate…all used and shit…there should be a warning label on this one.
i think fire-eaters, during their training, have to practice with this stuff before moving on to actual fire. 🙂
almost blind and dead, thomas o’malley was rescued by the local shelter after receiving a call from a neighbor who heard a faint meow in the storm drain. they estimated he was stuck there for a few weeks. they washed him off, warmed him up, and gave him basic medical attention. luckily, the weekly photographer for the shelter was there that day and put him up on the website for adoption immediately. luckily (again) i happened to visit the site just to look. when i saw him, i knew had to have him.
now…every, single, morning he’s outside my bedroom door waiting for me to get up. he greets me every day with loud purring, body rubs, and head butts to my ankles 🙂
today seems like a good day to tell this bit of self-trivia…
i was almost a veteran 🙂
with no direction in life, i (almost) joined the air force at 18. i was recruited to be a fighter jet pilot (weird, huh?), based on my scores, etc. so…i jumped through the hoops, went to the base for my physical (where they asked me if i was a ‘practicing homosexual’ or had ever participated in any homosexual activities…to which i said no).
the physical started at 6am and ended the next day. after which, i was called into an office where the dude told me there was a white bump on my tongue (had been there for years) and that i had to go to a civilian dr. to get it checked out and report back to him with the results.
when i got home, my mother said we wouldn’t have the money for a week or so….so that gave me time to think about things. i got a part-time job offer in a big & tall store and decided the military wasn’t for me. i never did go to the dr. to check out the bump, which mysteriously disappeared about a month later.
the recruiter was fukin pissed at me. called all day and night, every day and night, until my mom cursed him out and said “it ain’t happening” and called him some racist stuff. he stopped calling.
i moved up to full-time, then asst. manager, then (only a year later) was promoted to store manager. i was the youngest store manager in the chain’s history 🙂
thank you to all the veterans out there for your service. especially the ones who didn’t have a white bump on their tongue. or bone spurs.
i’ve used ebates.com for about a decade (or longer?) now. you just have to remember to go to the site first, before shopping, so they can set a temporary cookie to give you cash back on your purchase with (or install their browser add-on, so you never miss a cash-back opportunity 🙂 all of this at zero cost to you…no memberships, fees, etc.
they pay quarterly and the money back really adds up! their amazon purchase link is a bit weird, because amazon only allows cash back on certain categories that seem to change every other day or so. you can choose how to be paid…i think check mailed to you or paypal are the options, if memory serves me right.
they always have amazing deals and coupons, too.
PLUS…you get $10 bucks as a welcome purchase bonus for newbies!
