Start off with paying the Water bill last night. And not noticing that Laurie's card info came up instead of mine, and thus I paid it out of her nearly empty account. Which caused her to catch me on the way from the bathroom at 12:15 AM wondering how $40 disappeared from her account.
Add to it a lovely day at work. In an effort to keep this from being a book, just look at any post where I said something about things going wrong at work. Subtract the cutter not working, the computer going spastic, and multiply everything else by two or three. That was today. (Featuring, "turn a 10 minute job into an hour and 20 minute job by having to go through 2 1/2 packs of blades to find ONE that actually cuts.")
Run to the bank to fix the bill snafu, return to find Scrappy had apparently needed out while we were gone.
Top with another round of, "the wireless router is being cranky. Turn off both computers, unplug the router. Count to 30, replug and reboot. Repeat until everything works."
But now it's been over an hour since anything fell to crap on us, At least, anything that's readily apparent. So here's some more Aaron Hernandez contestants for ya.
Contestants 1-6: These gentlemen crossed into a nature preserve in Sumatra, hunting for some expensive kind of wood they were going to sell. (Mistake #1- committing an illegal act.) They braved the jungle because incense sticks made from it have been known to go for from $260 to $10,000 for a pound and a third. As night begins to fall, set a small trap to catch some food.
|Mistake #2- Shrimp Crackers. 40,000 rupiahs ($3.99) at your local store.|
Oops! You've caught a tiger cub! And before you can say, "I'm not fricasseeing THAT..." his whole family gathers around. (mistake #3: "Nice kitty... nice kitties...")
Upshot of the story: One man becomes tiger food; the other five try out the Jungle Fitness Water And Tree Bark diet for FOUR days at the top of a neighborhood Tualang. Eventually rescuers tried a handful of unsuccessful plans to move the Family Stripe along; but finally, they just got bored and left.
Here's another set of contestants! Number one was a 54-year-old man in Crossville, in Tennessee (go figure), whose neighbors (contestants #s 2 and 3) drop by for a visit. Mrs. Neighbor sends hubby "home to get her cigarettes" and then asks C#1 if she can swim in his pool- in the nude. Some combination of her looks and his horniness resulted in not only her swimming, but him watching for 20 minutes- while hubby was inside stealing around $1200 in handguns, jewelry, and medication.
Contestant #1- it takes 20 minutes for hubby to go fetch cigarettes? Time sure flies...
Contestants 2 and three- this might work better on someone who can't IDENTIFY you... but you do get points for skipping town before the cops could find you.
Contestants galore! Here's two more:
Reps. Donna Edwards, D-Md., and Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas, propose in the "Apollo Lunar Landing Legacy Act" that a national historical park on the moon be created to ensure the American landing sites are preserved for future generations.
The lawmakers say the legislation is necessary to protect the Apollo landing sites for "posterity," as commercial space exploration increases and more foreign nations head to space.
The Hill reports the bill would allow the federal government to accept donations to help preserve the landing sites and would create visitor services and administrative offices "within reasonable proximity to the Historical Park."
I guess on the bright side, it wouldn't cost much in NPS tour guides or lawn mowing. But where the hell would they consider "within reasonable proximity"?
|I know! I know! Put them in Al Gore's mansion!|
She wakes up. Hmm, perhaps we should have run tests...
Upshot here: The woman ends up finishing her suicide two years later (and three years ago). The Department of HHS (is this Health and Human Services, or Hardly Helpful Surgeons?) releases the report on the massive failures today. The hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center in Syracuse, N.Y., gets a whopping $6,000 fine.
Hey, none of you voted yesterday! Let's get some voting done!
