I'm cleaning off my desk...yep I do it every Friday…
It's such a good feeling to throw out all my papers from the week and I somehow collect a ton of them.
So I found this...the list of the least popular dog breeds. We already have had the most popular.
I haven't heard of any of these dogs, have you?
There's the English Foxhound, Cesky Terrier, Norwegian Lundehund, American Foxhound, the Harrier and the Dandie Dinmont terrier....and better yet, who comes up with these names?
And how did I miss this….the best/worst celebrity neighbors.
Jimmy Fallon is the top choice to live next too. Surprised it's not Ellen, followed by Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. The celebrity you don't want to live next to? No surprise Justin Beiber, closely followed by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Who would be next? Maybe Kris Jenner. Might as well keep it in the family.
Have a great weekend. Sadly Monday will be here before we know it!!!
the woman who got revenge on her co workers for always stealing her lunch.
Not even sure if it's true...as it was on Reddit.Com and sometimes I wonder about those posts
but it was just too good to not believe.
This guy posted his wife's lunch was always getting stolen from the office refrig.
So he made her some buffalo wings...and covered them in ghost pepper chili powder and Blair's 4am reserve.
I didn't know what that stuff is so I looked it up. Ghost peppers are one of the world's hottest chilies and Blair's 4am reserve is one of the hottest hot sauces….7,476 times spicier than Tabasco.
He tried a couple of the wings to make sure he wasn't about to kill someone...and while they were hot he lived to talk about it..lo
So the next day his wife brought them to work, and just before lunch, she heard someone yelling from the kitchen. Yep...one of the younger guys in the office turned out to be the lunch thief and did he get a mouth full!!!
I need to just tune in one half before the show begins.
Because most of the day..and I watch a lot of it...the coverage is really useless and ridiculous.
Bad interviews, an obvious killing of time...and too much Kelly Osborne. And I was embarrassed for Ross and the E network during his behind the scenes interview with Neil Patrick Harris.
And two..thank goodness E News stopped using that mani-cam.
Was not the stupidest thing...to make female stars walk their fingers down a box type thing while the camera watches so we can see their nails. Finally, stars stopped being polite. Julianne Moore, Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon refused to wave their fingers in for the SAG/AFTRA awards red carpets. E claims the space constraints made it impossible to set up and they're threatening to bring tit back. Lets hope they're just trying to save face now and then just let it disappear.
By the time the actual show is over, I have butt burn!!
I sit on the counch from about 11 on.
Which means I have to start with the E network...and let me tell you their first few hours are horrible...pure filler… But I watch!!!
ABC will come on at 4 with the Red Carpet Show...They'll have Robin Roberts and crew
and I'll alternate between them and E. .… and complain a lot..especially about Kelly Osborne and that gay guy who is on with her. I forget his name. He was Leno's intern years ago. He is really really annoying.
But I will watch and watch.
I will make nachos.I still have stuff left over from when I made my Super Bowl nachos. You think the sour cream is still good? And I'll have my frozen Weight Watchers Pizza.
Your turn...How much better is your Day at the Oscars?
Saw 2 crazy stories this morning. One made it to our OMG at 5:45.
A guy in Utah..Jack found out that Benihana was holding a nationwide contest.
Whoever ate the most meals at Benihana in 2014 would win a $1000 Benihana gift card and a trip to any Benihana in America.
Jack said "You're on" He went 579 times….sometimes he'd sit at the table where the chef flipped shrimp into his mouth...sometimes he would sit at the sushi bar. He spent about $12 every time which means he spent about $6900 to win a $1000 gift card. Although he did win!!!Plus he lost 20 pounds. Now hes trying to figure out he wants to go to a Benihana in Florida or Alaska.
Crazy story 2: A San Diego couple flew 7900 miles last weekend so they could visit three different Disney parks on Valentines Day. They went to Tokyo first, then Disneyland in Anaheim and then Disney World in Florida. And it took 28 hours. But they technically did it all in one day because Tokyo is 14 hours ahead of the east coast. Don't know what that all cost.
Alright...your turn...Craziest thing you ever did? There is no way you can top either of these...or is there?
I read Danielle Store, I watch Lifetime, I watch soaps, I watch Empire...OK maybe that one is not a good example..LOL
But I love this morning's "Isn't That Nice"..
Last week, a lady in Casper, Wyoming got flowers from her husband.
No biggie, right? Her husband died last year..was only 53...had a brain tumor.
There was a card with the flowers. "Happy Valentine's Day, honey. Stay strong. Yours forever. Love, Jim".
Can you imagine? She asked her kids, did you do this? No was the answer so they called the florist and it turns out when Jim was diagnosed with his tumor, he went to the flower shop and paid them to send flowers to his wife Shelly for Valentines Day...not just this year but every year for the rest of her life.
They were married 28 years. Their love will last forever.
When Jeff and I were out to dinner Saturday nite the couple at the table 2 down from us got engaged!!
Top that one!!
Actually I noticed on FB, a few got engaged Valentines Day.
I love schmaltzy stuff like that.
But this one I think might be the sweetest story of them all..
There's a high school in Oklahoma with 1076 girls and every single one of them got a Valentines Day card and a candy. The message inside "Remember there will always be people who care about you and I will always be one of then! Love anonymous.
Before the day was out, Mr. Anonymous was identified….Dan Williams...a fellow student who saved all of last year so he'd have the money to do this. No he doesnt have a girlfriend although I'm thinking he might have 1076 to choose from. BTW...Dan is an Eagle Scout.
This might be something good to pass on to your kids or maybe some friends
because I know you would never do this...LOL.
It's along the lines of the warnings we've all given our kids about facebook posts…
what they should and should not put on their page….that is if they ever want to find a job.
Well, a few days ago in Texas a girl named Celia was about to start her new job at a pizza place.
I'm guessing she wasn't very excited.. as the night before she was to start she tweeted" Ew I start this ****ass job tomorrow." And she followed with 7 thumbs down emojis.
Her boss, somehow found out about the tweet because he got onto his Twitter account and for the first time in years and sent Celia a tweet of his own, "No, you don't start your ***job tomorrow as I just fired you. Good luck with your no money, no job life!"
Was so cute yesterday..I was at a store in Valley Fair
and there was a guy..I think ..in his 50s..trying to buy a Valentines Day gift.
He had no clue as to what he was doing.
But he obviously cared so much….and was so out of his comfort zone…
that I went up and helped him.
His wife will be getting a lovely bracelet….LOL
Its hard buying gifts this time of year. I've only dated Jeff for three years and I am already out of ideas.
We just had Christmas/Hanukkah. Our third anniversary is coming up and then in April it's his birthday. Maybe my problem is I buy too many gifts. I've given all the good obvious stuff.
Saw yesterday 8 out of ten women were co mplainking that theyve received a Valentines Day gift
that had no thought behind it. Is that you? I like any gift. A gift is a gift!! All good to me!
So what is your deal about Valentines Day?
Someone said on TV..they're happy with just a box of chocolate...although it better be good chocolate.
And does everyone give/bet agift...wives and husbands? Isnt this really supposed to be a male buying holiday? I was never really quite clear on the concept. My girlfriends say the guy is the only one who is supposed to buy a gift.
While my girls were growing up VD actually become more of a day for them...They got all the good gifts..and to this day..I give my girls Valentines Day gifts. Actually I do cheat now. I give gift cards for them and their husband/fiance to go out to dinner...and one for them to buy something new.
For me..I'm happy with a card. And the ones I get every year from my girls are the best! They're all tucked away in a drawer.
Would have made me feel guilty as I stuffed the sewing kit , mouthwash and shampoo into my bag...LOL. Yes, I was in LA over the weekend...and stayed at a pretty nice hotel. I don't think my hotel is doing this but some of hotels are now putting tracking chips on their towels and robes. In fact about 2000 of them have bought these little devices….not to stop us from taking the toiletries as I've been told they fully expect us to do that…. but to keep our cotton-pickin fingers off the expensive stuff. Now I will admit I have taken a washcloth or two...usually because Ive used it to wrap something in but I have never taken a towel. I do stay at fairly nice hotels but sometimes the towels arent even that good plus theyre no longer monogrammed so why would you even want one?
Hotels do lose up to $50,000 a year from stuff guests steal...and apparently people do steal stuff.
A survey found that 7 out of ten sometimes do take something bigger than the little soaps or shampoos.
So fess up...the pricest thing you've even taken from a hotel? We're all Facebook friends….and what happens on Facebook stays on FB. We take the oath...we will not tell a soul..or a hotel. So again, what have you stolen..I mean...taken from a hotel?
So whats the plan for seeing Fifty Shades of Valentines Day?
I means Fifty Shades of Grey on Valentines Day? LOL
I dont know is this a movie you want to see with your significant other?
To me, its a movie you want to see with your most fun girlfriends.
The last Sex and the City Movie was a girl night….There must have been 12 of us…
all in the back row of the movie theater in Morgan Hill. We had already been partying.
And I do think there was some champagne being passed from seat to seat that night...but boy did we have fun. Im not sure the people in front of us had fun...but we did .LOL
I'm not excited about Fifty Shades I hate to say as I am the one woman in America who hasnt ready any of the books. Werent there 3.
But I know a lot of you cant wait...So just a warning...that the movie theaters were on to us for Sex and the City and will be watching that front door. I wonder if you'll have to have your bags checked..LOL.
Some are already saying if you plan to dress in costume, you'd better leave the whips , paddles and spiked gloves at home. A spokesman for AMC (of course it's a "man") says "While we welcome those guests who want to show their excitement for a film by dressing up in costume, we can not permit weapons (real or fake)…
"or props/costumes that would make guests uncomfortable,, or detract from the moviegoing experience.
We don't k now if this really happened or not, but it's such a great story!!
It could have easily been made up. Or…..
It's a story about the new McDonald's promotion...where you're randomly picked to do something fun or loving and you get your meal for free.
Supposedly on Tuesday, a guy was told he'd get his $15 order covered-I know how do you spend $15 for one meal at McDonald's- if he called a family member to say "I love you"
So he did it...sounds easy..loving. He called his Mom!!!
Turns out...according to the story….this man has a history of depression and suicidal thoughts and when he called his Mom she freaked out….she thought he was about to take his life. She had an asthma attack. Once she used her inhaler and calmed down (15 minutes later) he got his free food.
OK..I've decided this story has to be made up.
But can you relate to this at all? What would you think if out of the blue you got a call from a child or a friend who just wanted to say "I love you"
And the moral of this story-if there is one. We don't make enough "nice" phone calls.
Call someone special today..just to say "I Love You"
And why was Parenthood cancelled...or finished up as the network big wigs would call it?
Yes, maybe Ron Howard was done but there just weren't enough viewers. The last nite had 5.5 million people watching which was probably its biggest audience. Same size audience BTW as The Biggest Loser Finale.
I wont even stack it up to the Super Bowl which had 114 million viewers or the Post game show that had 72 million...but look at some of the other hit shows now..
The Blacklist which I don't know anything about has 26 million viewers.
Big Bang Theory 17 million. NCIS 13 million. Blue Bloods which I love 12 million and that's in the dreaded Fri. nite spot, and Mom has 12 million.
I do love the new show Empire on Fox...Its up to over 11 million viewers...almost the same number as Idol. And I am going to watch the NBC Drama Slap which starts on the 12th. I think its taking the Parenthood spot.
But the bottom line is Parenthood didn't continue because the ratings were never that good.
Now that's the real question....why not? If you didn't watch the 6 seasons..I think there were 6. Get it on DVD..or check Netflix...It is well worth every hour you will give it.
Have you been getting a lot of emails of late from
companies and stores you know...offering you $100 gift cards?
They look legit. I got alot of them over the holidays. They were from retailers I frequent...I think Target, Kohls, and a few others I now can't remember but somehow I knew
better and didnt download a single one.
Good thing... Thumbing through magazines yesterday while on the couch coughing my head off I saw an alert on how scammers are sending phony emails like never before with links that dont download a coupon but instead a virus or spyware that infects your computer, stealing your private info.
The safe bet is to call the retailer or restaurant and ask if it's legit.
I can already tell you it's not.
I now just hit delete...and dont give it a second thought.
But hey lets share horror stories...You can help spare someone else trouble.
Have you been victimized lately by an email that seemed legit...but wasn't?
