Gift

We are in the midst of some pretty nasty storms here this evening. On our drive home today, though, Bill and I were treated to a gift from Mother Nature. Just on the horizon, half-hidden by trees, was a beautiful, thick rainbow. It was amazing! No real arch to it, it just spread right across the horizon, with the darkest sky behind it.

Amazing.

something to think about


Have you ever looked at a map posted in a tourist town, or looked at the fire-escape route map on the back of a hotel door? Remember how there is a big “X” with “You Are Here” next to it?

Here’s something for you to ponder today: If you’re in Hawaii, the map you look at says that you are there. But at the same time, if you were holding a map from, say Idaho, it would tell you that you were in Idaho. HOW could you be in Idaho and Hawaii at the same time?

They are magic teleporting maps, I bet.

(This was an actual conversation I observed, between a few 40+ year-old men this morning)

Toga! Toga!

So our friends' annual toga party is on the 27th...

Anyone have a "real" (read: not just a bedsheet with a knot in it) toga that they would be willing to loan/ part with?

I know that I could easily make one, but I just thought I would try to find one first.....

Sorry I don't have anything more interesting than that. I'll try harder next time.

Vacation

So my sister and cousin and their families are all planning trips to warm, beachy places in the next week or so.

I'm going on vacation, too. Memorial Day weekend, I get to go to Custer, OH (no, they don't have a stoplight), and Weston, OH (they don't either) for a cookout with my in-laws!!!!!!! And the rest of the week, I'm going to Owens-Illinois Global Glass Division in Perrysburg, OH! (for those who don't know, that's where I work) I know, you're jealous.

Ok, so maybe I'm not actually going on vacation. But my brain just might :)

P.S. If you're wondering where those small towns are, they're west of Bowling Green, Ohio. (Bug-Soup)

Well, is it?

So, did you hear about the “miracle fish” that was found? It apparently had writing on its scales that said something like “God is great” in Arabic.

Anyway, when I heard it mentioned on Bob & Tom (radio program) this morning, all I could think was:

Is it a fish? (No!)
Is it a fish? (No!)
Is it a fish? (No!)
Is it a fish? (No! Shut up Andrew!)

Movie Wisdom

I just wanted to share a few things I learned by watching movies. I have them on post-its on my computer monitor, for those days when life just seems to be handing out lemons (make lemonade?)

"Life's a garden. Dig it." (Joe Dirt)
"It's wind. It blows all over the place." (The Weatherman)

"Don't Panic." (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
"Sometimes in life, you just have to chuck some s**t." (The Weatherman)

And the old standbys:
"Stupid is as stupid does."
"Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get."

Just FYI

DAD, ITS RAINING!

MOM, ITS RAINING!

DREW, ITS RAINING!

ELISSA, IT'S RAINING!

Bad Megan

I am the worst kid ever.

I slept most of the day yesterday. I forgot it was sunday. I forgot to call my mom and wish her a happy mother's day. (I did, however, get her and my sister a gift which she should be getting any day now)

BAD MEGAN! BAD!

Sorry, mom. Happy Mother's Day. I love you! I'm sorry I didn't call you. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Boys and Toys

Ok, so can I just say that BB guns (hand gun) can be very fun toys.

That being said, gun safety applies to ALL guns, real or not. Yes, I got shot by a BB gun. Yes, Bill's friend thought the gun was empty. YES, I will be getting him back for it... somehow. The phrase "I fired it two times before that and nothing came out" was uttered: UM, YOU OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T SHOOT YOURSELF those 2 times. Luckily, it was a plastic BB, and it didn't leave enough of a mark to photograph. And believe me, I was gonna take a picture of it. And show it to him every time I saw him.

Anyway, I got to shoot the gun a few times and it is fun. But I know better than to point any type of firearm at anyone...

My leg hurts :(

My Cinco de Mayo

First of all, about the guinea pigs: Elissa, be thankful that I didn't give your children one for Christmas. I seriously considered it.

Today started out like a monday. It was in NO way worthy of being a friday. Fast-forward a few hours to when I got an e-mail invite to lunch from my dad. Talk about that timing thing again!

Thanks, daddy.

The rest of the day was 100% better, and it keeps looking better and better. Bill washed and vacuumed the car before he came to pick me up. (Prince Charming and the shining chariot, thank you very much!)

Free to a good home...

Three guinea pigs. Two males, one female. FREE. FREE. FREE!

They began as feeder pigs for a friend's snake... the snake died. My husband, the animal lover, couldn't let them die. I'll admit, they're cute. But I really can't keep them. I mean, we already have a cat (excuse me, a princess of a cat) and a squirrel. (YES a real squirrel. Yes, it lives in our house. No, it doesn't live in a cage.)

Oh yeah, and last week, I came home to find 2 baby guinea pigs in one of the cages. Turns out "Eileen" wasn't a girl, after all. Fun stuff.
