Amanda stopped in at work today.  She was going shopping for a kennel for her German Shephard.  She said she’d stop by my house on her way home.  I get home from work and as I exit my car, she pulls in the drive-way.  Right after her is a white SUV that had 2 guys in it and pulled in my drive-way as well.  I don’t recognize anyone and as Amanda gets out of her car:

Me: Who is that?

Amanda: Some guys from Petsmart.

Me: They work there?

Amanda:  No, they were in the parking lot.

Me: Do you know them?

Amanda (giggling and acting all shy): No

Me: What are they doing here?

Amanda: I struggled to get the kennel into my little car and I couldn’t get it in there no matter what I did.  So these guys offered to follow me and bring it here to your house.

Me (shaking my head as I turn to walk into the house):  Must be nice being pretty.

I’m in love again….

 … with Jack.   My friend Erin, asked Jeri and I to be Godparents to her youngest child.  Jack Matthew Mikkalson.  We were more than honored.  After church we all went to Hunan Garden for Chinese food.  Awesome!  Great family time too… right Erin?  Haha

Just had to say it, I’ve reconnected with some from high school.  So far 8 out of the 83 in our graduating class.  I love it!  That was a happy time in my life, I never wanted high school to end.  It’s great seeing how people have changed and to see their families.  I love facebook and it’s a whole lot less sleezy than MySpace.

Too effn funny!

I’m still laughing… especially at the comment below!

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – Here’s some food for thought: If you have nude photos of your wife on your cell phone, hang onto it.

Phillip Sherman of Arkansas learned that lesson after he left his phone behind at a McDonald’s restaurant and the photos ended up online. Now he and his wife, Tina, are suing the McDonald’s Corp., the franchise owner and the store manager.

The suit was filed Friday and seeks a jury trial and $3 million in damages for suffering, embarrassment and the cost of having to move to a new home.

The suit says that Phillip Sherman left the phone the Fayetteville store in July and that employees promised to secure it until he returned.

Manager Aaron Brummley declined to comment, and other company officials didn’t return messages.

I think if you leave your phone at McDonalds and trust the employees, who probably consist of high school students and dropouts, and the occasional teen who realizes WIC isn’t going to be enough to support their illegitimate child, and you actually trust them to conceal nude photos that are on that phone, NOT ONLY do you deserve to have those photos put on the internet, but really, all those calories you consume through fast food need to rush directly to your head and kill you for being so stupid. I don’t trust McDonalds employees enough to request them make my cheeseburger without pickles and expect it to miraculously happen somehow.
