Cell Phone Common Courtesy

Cell Phone Common Courtesy

You see cell phones wherever you go these days. Young, old, rich, poor, they are all over the place. They can be a real lifesaver at times, especially when there is an emergency. For instance, when you get stuck on the side of the road, you can call Triple-A.  If  you are running late for an appointment? Hey, give them a call. Cell phones can be used for a lot of things. You can check the weather, send an email, or even order dinner. Total convenience. They can even be used for reading or playing Words With Friends. But there are definitely some situations where there needs to be cell phone common courtesy. Shouldn't have to be said, … [Read more...]

Winter Is Not A Wonderland

I think I may have mentioned several times that I hate winter. Winter is not a wonderland. In fact, I think it sucks. The latest storm has just solidified my belief that winter was created just to torture me. I supposed it could be worse, I could live in a place like Wisconsin, where it snows all the time.

Dear Crazy Christmas Shoppers

'Tis the season to be jolly fa-la-la blah blah blah. I would ordinarily love this time of year. Nah, not really. Retail and commercialism has ruined the magic of the Christmas season. Instead of being a season of goodwill and cheer, it has turned into give-me-more and be totally nasty. Boy, did I swallow grumpy pills today. Guess it is because of the general nastiness being spread around. Julie at From Inmates To Playdates has posts that she terms Letters To Crazy People. They are hilarious and entertaining. I am snatching her idea little bit, by posting my own letter to the Christmas shopper. Feel free to chime in at the comment section. … [Read more...]

The 80s Music I Love~Old But Not Forgotten

80s music has always been a part of my life.  Those songs were part of my heart and soul growing up.  During a time when everything was confusing, and the most tragic things in life was the fact that my parents would not buy me a pair of Jordache jeans in stonewash or I couldn't go roller skating until I cleaned my room.  Remember how much 80s music reflected every mood you had? Recently, while hanging out with our friends from the baseball team, we were sitting around with our I-pods and smartphones, and we were playing "hey remember this song."  It was like totally so much fun(Did we really use that phrase?).  There were a lot of 80s … [Read more...]
