Friendship Poem

I got this from a good friend and had to post it because it cracked me up!

Wishing ya'll a happy Friday!

Are you tired of all those sissy "friendship" poems that always sound
good, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series
of promises that really speaks to true friendship:

1. When you are sad - I will help you get drunk and plot revenge
against the sorry bastard who made you sad.

2. When you are blue - I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile - I will know you finally got laid.

4. When you are scared - I will rag on you about it every chance I

5. When you are worried - I will tell you horrible stories about how
much worse it could be and to quit whining.

6. When you are confused - I will use little words.

7. When you are sick - Stay the hell away from me until you are well
again. I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall - I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

Remember: A good friend will help you move. A really good friend will
help you move a body. Let me know if I ever need to bring a shovel.

Reality Television

I am addicted to Reality TV shows. I always knew I watched alot of it but I really realized it last night when I was watching American Idol. I watch way too many reality shows. I don't know what it really is for me but I think it is a combination of the drama, the craziness (read: stupidity) of people, the destinations and just the what people will do/go through for a shot at money.

I started making a mental list of reality shows I watch and I didn't realize how many I do watch on a regular basis when they are on!

Amazing Race
Big Brother
The Bachelor/Bachelorette
American Idol
Dancing with the Stars
The Apprentice
Real World (not religiously)

And most likely tonight, Skating with the Stars. I also used to watch The Mole when it was on and was upset when it went away. Plus other short lived ones along the way like Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire, My big fat obnoxious fiance and probably a few more.

And it's just like watching a train wreck sometimes, you can't not watch them.

I'm sure I'm not alone in my reality television watching .... or at least I hope I'm not =)

Grocery Shopping

I am not a big fan of grocery shopping and I try to put it off as long as I can because of it. I don't like the crowds, the having to haul the bags out to the car, put them in the car, walk a few miles to find a cart corral, then get back to the car and once home haul the bags from the car up the stairs to the house and then unload them. And did I mention the crowds and how something always ends up not ringing up correctly?

Last night I had to go grocery shopping and I was planning to do it prior to going to Dawnn's house for Stephanie's crop but since I slept in so late I didn't have a chance so I thought I would go after the crop. I am at the grocery store at midnight shopping which was not bad, not many crowds, rather peaceful. I also don't shop with a list, if I have a list it just sits in my hand and I forget to look at it. And I am always certain to forget something. Last night I think I got it all.

I go down the cereal aisle as I need another box of Yogurt Burst Strawberry Cheerio's (see prior posting about Cheerio's if you don't know anything about this) and there is no strawberry. All they have is the Vanilla. I stood there a moment and contemplated the Vanilla which I have not tried yet because I'm so stuck on Strawberry. After a few minutes I decided to be a big girl and try something new so I got Vanilla. I haven't opened the box yet but I will tomorrow morning when I bring some to work. I'll let you know what I decide ... vanilla or strawberry :)
