Happy Hour Friday









 I have so much to be thankful for and of course since it's Happy Hour Friday I will share! I just want to mention my wonderfully wonderful bloggy boytoy OTIE because he is the super bestest. Be sure to check him out. I always do (hahahaha)

  • It has been a long week and I haven't even been working -- at least not working for pay. Well that's not true, Tuesday I got paid to work as a real life pharmacist (always a good thing!). The week has been so busy for me because I have spent several hours volunteering for the field hockey booster club. It was kinda fun. We went to the high school and sold frozen yogurt. The teens were all so nice and polite to us old farts. It was kinda cool to spend a couple days back in high school. I got to see the jocks, the geeks, the stoners, the math clubbers, the princesses, and quite a few normal people -- well as normal as teenagers can be anyway. There were a couple that looked like they came right out of 1985. It was great!







  • Ok but there was this one chick.  We only had vanilla ice cream, but we had four choices of toppings (you could have any number of toppings you wanted for no extra charge). Anyway, we had 1 person taking money, one marking down the number of cups sold, and I was scooping out the toppings. Because I was handling food I had to wear gloves (makes sense, right?). Anyway this one girl comes up and asked (politely) for a cup and I asked her what toppings she'd like. She started touching the spoons and stuff that were inside the topping containers and stirring them around. Now, on the one hand this isn't a major issue. However, we were trying to be as careful as possible about having the kids looming over the toppings and I was personally doing the scooping to keep hands out of the bins. One of the other parents politely said not to touch the spoons, took it out of her hand, and replaced it with a new spoon. I then asked her what toppings she wanted. She just turned away from me and pouted and said she didn't care anymore! I just laughed at her and looked at her friend (who was planning on sharing with her) and asked which toppings she'd like. The first girl just continued to pout and sulked away, but the 2nd girl was nice and got the ice cream. After they left the one mom (who is president of the booster club) told me that the pouty girl was a trouble maker and had been kicked off of several soccer teams because of her attitude, and had spent time in "South" ( the alternative school). She said I handled her brilliantly because I didn't let her give me any crap. I did all this without know who this kid was, I just knew she was being a little snot.  It kinda made me giggle. 
  •  Muppet, our little foster dog, is going to get tutored tomorrow. I had to drop him off today tho because I'm going out of town trmo. He was so sweet. I believe he has a Forever Home to go to after his surgery. It's a retired lady who wants a friend. He was definitely a snuggle buddy so she should be happy with him. I hope so.   
  • I tried to put a picture of him here but blogger is being a shit goofy. You can see him here tho. Okay... no you can't. He's not on the website anymore. It must be because he really does have his forever home. But I decided to leave the link cuz there are lots of other adorably wonderful doggies that need love. 
  • You can also go to Barbs site and here too to read about Tommy. You should do it. It's important that you see what kind of people are in the world. It's sick. But it's part of HHF because Tommy is safe now and going to be loved the rest of his little life.  Plus I got to see him today and he's gained 8 pounds!!
  • I LOST 4 pounds!! Okay yes, it's all water weight but I'd rather it be flowing thru the sewer than sitting on my ass so I'm all for it!
  •  Oh, duh, I'm going out of town tomorrow. My good friend and fellow H4H board member Joy and I are going to Champaign (UofI) for a Habitat for Humanity International Conference. We are gonna learn all kinds of good stuff to make our chapter better. Plus there's gonna be wine (in the evenings, not during the lectures silly!)
  • I was chatting online with Otie today and we were talking about poo. It was funny and made me laugh out loud. Yes, I am amused by bodily functions. Maybe I was a boy in a former life. Or a future one? Maybe I've just been married too long.
  • I am super happy that I didn't lose any followers again this week. Sorry I have been MIA but I've been a little busy. No excuse, I understand, but please forgive me! Oh and let's give a warm welcome to Dad, my newest follower, who showed up this week even tho I haven't. You gotta love that. 
  • I am happy, as I'm sure you are too, that I'm done with this post. Now I'm going to go have a glass of wine.
Happy Friday everyone! Go see Otie and click on his Mr Linky (he really likes it when you do that!)

otin said...

Brian Miller said...

Green-Eyed Momster said...

I looked hot in the 80's! I don't care what anyone says....LOL!! I can't believe some of those fashions are coming back. Holy crap! See, I can talk poo too!

Teenagers are like aliens. I should know! Happy Friday! Glad you're following me on Twitter although I suck at Twitter these days and I hardly ever tweet.

Hugs!!

McGillicutty said...

Dang girl you stay away and then we can't shut you up!! hee hee. How in the hell did you lose 4 lbs? is it the wine restriction?

Matty said...

Now why would I ever stop following you? With such entertainment, I would be a fool. Now go kiss Otie and get back to work.

Jay said...

As soon as that girl touched one of the spoons I would have started screaming "YOU CAN'T TOUCH THE SPOONS YOU IDIOT!" Then I would have started yelling and throwing things and I'd tell her she ruined it for everyone and "I hate your guts!!" Then I would have just sat on the floor and cried.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Just stopped by to say "Otin, Otin, Otin" :-)

Yeah on the 4 pounds! Hope everything works out for Muppet.

I'll be back again soon.

xo

Sounds like a great week!!

willow said...

Gosh, that girl in your pic looks just like me in 1985, with my keds, white socks, striped shirt and jean jacket! Man, am I glad the 80s are over.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Isn't it funny how some people cling to the 80's fashion?

Good job on handling that pouty girl!

WooHoo that Muppet is getting a Forever Home! And WooHoo on the 4 lbs! :)

Have fun on your little trip - don't drink too much wine...oh who am I kidding? Drink up!! :)

Fidgeting Gidget said...

I hate pouty brats and I love it when they're put in their place...good work.

KIKI said...

I was beginning to wonder how you tutor a dog, but then I saw the word surgery and figured Muppet was being neutered.

Congrats on the 4 pounds...I would like to see 10 go bye bye

Poo is great to discuss. All the ways in which you go poo comes out.. the ones that splash, the ones that hang off and you have to wiggle your ass so it breaks free...

Happy Friday!

Barb said...

Speaking of '80s, you missed the 80s music on the radio at the gym today. It must have been some time warp or something! Have fun. See you when you get back.

Lisa E said...

OMG Bambi, I knew I loved you and Otin from the beginning. I was going to post that I was happy I was not constipated.............honest.

Optimistic Pessimist said...

YAY for wine! I still haven't had any wine since my marathon. Guess I'm still not back to normal.

Michel said...

The 80s were the best! I heart them..and its music!

Bee and Rose said...

Came over from Otin...you are a class A riot! I will definitely be back!

Little Ms Blogger said...

Did the girls have the big hair to match the 80's fashion? That would be scary.

I read Otin's comment and laughed because he's right - you went from ice cream to pounds lost to poo....

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

This was really random Friday! Kudos on the four pounds, putting the little snot in her place, discussing poo with Otin and for getting the Muppet to a good home. Now that's really random..LOL!

Mrs4444 said...

I love that you didn't let that girl intimidate you. I teach kids like that most years and find them challenging (but also very lovable, once you get to know them. :)

Speaking of ice cream, you're welcome to double-dip you know...this would've been a perfect Friday Fragments post, too :)
