Ode to George Orwell's "1984"


I got in "trouble" at work for using the Internet for non-work related things (i.e. Pottery Barn, West Elm, FoodNetwork, etc).

I received a list of all the websites I'd looked at in a week... It had to equal about 100 pages.

So beware everyone...

Big brother is watching you!!

Do you think I'm judgmental?

That's just a rhetorical question for you all, because I know I am..

Here's what brought that thought to my mind lately:

--There's a Toyota Prius (definitely a "smug" person) that parks in the hospital parking lot near me. The license plate frame says (their words, not mine): "Under God, My Ass". The first thing I thought was, "Man this guy is going to hell."

--I was on facebook, looking at some random friend's profile, when I saw some chick from high school had commented on a picture. I immediately thought, "Ugh you slut [meaning the girl]."

Is being judgmental necessarily a BAD thing?

Google

Do you ever google yourself? And no, that's not an innuendo in any way.

I was very happy to find that I am now un-findable on the internet. With my new blah married name, I am nearly incognito when you google search me. If you knew my maiden name, which some of you do, you'd be able to find me much easier.

True, you can find me easily on facebook and myspace... but those don't reveal the true me.

So, I could almost say whatever I want on this blog. Almost. But I won't. Anyways, totally random.

Btw, I'm trying to keep this light. I just found out my grandpa has metstatic cancer, with mets to his kidney, liver, and pancreas... and I've been really sad about it... Especially since I see those kinds of patients every day at the hospital. But, you could go to my sister's blog to read about it if you'd like.

New Car


Before you say anything, like how irresponsible you think we are, or how you hate European cars..
Our new car has:
--The same payments as the old car
--Turbo engine
--A good CarFax report
--Great mileage
--6-CD changer and a spot for an iPod jack
--New tires
--Sex appeal :)
Anyways, yes.. I bought my first car. It's not Graham's, since my name is the only one on the loan.. but he mostly drives it. It's kind of a long story, but we decided to trade in the Chevy Malibu.. or should I say "Mal B". It was a sinking ship, and we wanted out... fast.
So, our friend hooked us up with a dealer in Port Orchard (Grey Chevrolet for anybody that wants to know). They were good, not slimy at all, and dealt efficiently with our purchase. I am VERY happy with my "new" 2005 Saab. Woohoo!
And please, no judgmental comments. That means YOU mom.

Graham's Punishment

Ok, I don't know how many of you remember how Graham lost his wedding ring last year.. But he lost it while we were tubing on the cold Weiser River in Idaho. Yes, the ring was probably found by Smiegel, who became so obsessed with the ring, he turned into Gollum... but you already know that story.


So anyways, Graham lost his ring again. He was helping some young men at a Scout activity in a cold lake that were learning how to save themselves in a canoe that had been swamped with water. The boys started freaking out, so Graham (and another Young Men's leader) jumped in the lake to help save them. So in the dark, cold water, Graham's ring awaits a new owner. Someone who will appreciate it.

And this is his punishment for losing yet another wedding ring:


Isn't it hideous? It says "Always and Forever", and yes that is a heart with a cheap stone in the center. Thank you Wal-Mart.

Graham got off easy though.. The other leader lost his wallet in the lake, with an emergency $100 bill in it..

Mo money.. Mo problems..

This was me two weeks ago. Literally. Our foundation was dug out at the beginning of August, based on measurements made by our cons...
