the universe laughs at its joke on me

I ran up to the Dollar General this a.m. for "potting soil". YES! A bottle of Diet Pepsi, damn it. It's like 90 thousand degrees here today and I'm still friggin addicted! Anywho, there was a guy and girl standing at the card rack and she was pouring over each one saying things like, "Awww, isn't this sweet?" and "Oooh, I just love this one." The guy, of course, was wearing that glazed "what the HELL do women find so fascinating with CARDS?!" expression on his face. That "oh, man, what I wouldn't give for someone to have a car emergency and call me RIGHT. NOW." look. I felt for him, I really did. She'd move like two inches down the card rack and he'd crowd on top of her. Not so much for the intimacy, methinks. But to try to push her down the card aisle faster...

Stephen Colbert on big soft drinks: "I for one won't drink out of anything I can't drown in."

I heard a FABULOUS new song on the radio yesterday that I just love.
It's called "When Did You Fall In Love (With Me)" by Chris Rice.
I rarely ever print
entire song lyrics, but I loved this one so much I'm going to make an exception.
I especially love the first verse:


You're all smiles and silly conversations
As if this sunny day came just for you
You twist your hair, your smile and you turn your eyes away
Come on tell me what's right with you
Now it dawns on me probably everybody's talking
There's something here I'm supposed to realize
Your secret's out and the universe laughs at it's joke on me
I just caught it in your eyes
It's a beautiful surprise

When did you fall in love with me?
Was it out of the blue?
'Cause I swear I never knew it
When did you let your heart run free?
Have you been waiting long?
When did you fall in love with me?
When did you fall in love?

Make your way over here, sit down by this fool and let's rewind
Come on let's go back and replay all our scenes
Point out the hints, the clues, the twists and the smiles this time
All the ones that slipped by me
I bet my face is red and you can hear my heart pounding
Well I guess it don't matter now that I realize
'Cause baby I missed it then, but I can surely see you now
Right here before my eyes
You're my beautiful surprise

When did you fall in love with me?
Was it out of the blue?
'Cause I swear I never knew it
When did you let your heart run free?
Have you been waiting long?
When did you fall in love with me?
When did you fall in love?

Was it at the coffee shop?
Or was it that morning at the bus stop?
When you almost slipped and I caught your hand
Or the time we built the snowman?
The day at the beach, sandy and warm
Or the night with the scary thunderstorm?
I never saw the signs
And we've got to make up for lost time
And I can tell now by the way you're looking at me
I better finish this song so my lips will be free
Yeah

Have you been waiting long?When did you fall in love?
I kept you waiting so long
When did you fall?
Have you been waiting long?
When did you fall in love with me?

When did you fall in love?

Was it at the coffee shop?
Or that morning at the bus stop?
I never saw the signs
No, no

'Cause I'm gonna fall
I'm gonna fall
I'm about to fall in love
And I need to know
When did you fall for me?

My lips will be free
My lips are free
My lips are free

Ok, now the reason that I really like this song is twofold. One, I think it's really unique and two, it is at
simple times like sitting in a coffee shop or building a snowman, that I look at my husband and think, "I really love this man.
I'm so lucky to have such a good man in my life." There ya go, as soon as I get dsl, I'm sooooo stealing this song!

I am soooo glad I'm off today. By the time the day was over yesterday, Overtime Hawg called me THREE TIMES asking about the boss and each time reiterating, "Now if she's not better by Monday you blah blah blah," and the last time she said it, she added, "I just don't want you to forget." In a voice that sounded like I'd O.D.ed on Splenda, I said, "How could I possibly forget? This is the third time you've told me this and today is only Friday."
Fug her! I'm sick of her trying to control what's going on at work when she's off.

Some goofball kept text messaging me yesterday on my cell phone. I tried telling him he had the wrong number
but instead of saying, "Ok I guess you would know if you know me," he kept trying to explain who he was.
He txt'ed me to begin with and asked me if I was ok. I txted back, "who r u" brief, yet to the point, I felt.
He wrote back, "tony." I said, "u have the wrong #." He writes back, "lol. this is susan's brother tony."
I txted back, "Um HELLO u have the WRONG #." Now most people would have figured out at this point that they had the wrong number,
but not Tony. He writes, "susan from work."
I replied, "WRONG NUMBER" thinking perhaps it was the "#" symbol that was confusing the lad.
A few minutes later he writes, "susan=the red head".
I wrote, "oooh susan give her a message for me ok."
He writes, "knew you'd remember whats the msg"
I said, 'TELL SUSAN HER BROTHER HAS THE WRONG FUCKING NUMBER."
If being sarcastic is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
