  • Remembering

    I find it sad and disappointing that remembrance day comes and goes without any acknowledgment or respect anymore. Around 20 million people died in that war. Isn't that crazy? I think because it's such a huge unfathomable number it's easy to distance you

    I do have a bitch, but I'm not quite sure how to describe it. or if anyone will have a sweet clue what im talking about. Since my Ipod broke a few weeks ago after 2-3 years of NEVER having to communicate or hear others on the bus, I've been forced to lis

    OK, so I'm noticing the ridiculous number of "s/he doesn't want to be my Facebook friend", and I have to say "HOLY CRAP! Why not GO OUT and make a freaking friend fer gawd's sake! Or find out about the next reunion your "friends" have scheduled via Faceb
  • "Last night i was so drunk, I..."

    Last summer I worked in a place with a lot of students and had to listen to the endless "partying" stories. How much you drank last night, all the older men who hit on you, the "ugly" (although probably decent) guy you convinced to buy you drinks and the

  • Poppy's: To Wear or Not to Wear...

    I actually bought TWO poppy's. Well, I got THOSE for free but gave $5.00 towards one of those pins with the backing on it so the poppy wouldn't prick my five year old. Of course, mine was lost within 24 hours but my little girl proudly wears hers. It wa

  • You wouldn't have done much better

    I work as a cashier, and I think I'm doing good at it. When I'm not, there's usually a good reason behind it, like if a customer brings an item without a UPC code and I have to call another employee to bring me one. Another obstacle is when the cash draw

    I used to love going to the movies, not just for the movie, but for the delicious buttery movie theatre popcorn. Now, after I pay 15 dollars for a drink and popcorn, what do I get? Orville Redenbacher with Becel "butter". Seriously? I can pop better popc
