Burnin' down the house!

Yesterday was one for the books....I was just not having one of my better days! While playing board games with our friends, Issak and Beth, at our house last night, I thought I should make some popcorn. So I got a a bag and popped it in the microwave...not a hard task right? Well 3 minutes too long later, I saw in the corner of my eye smoke flooding the kitchen, pouring out from the microwave! Now from the time that I yelled "oh my gosh!", which set Rory and the rest of them in action, until a few minutes later that I was opening the doors, I really do not remember what happened! My mind is really a blank! Issak thinks I was just sitting there in shock for a few minutes! I really don't know...I remember grabbing a board game lid and waving at the smoke? Who knows! At least the others didn't freeze like me! All I know is that our house is still standing! I just can't wait for our the burnt popcorn smell to go away! It is pretty bad, especially down stairs in the kitchen!
It really was a day for fires, or "fire scares" I should say. At school in the morning, right in the middle of class, the fire alarms went off. The best was when my teacher said "oh, do we have to leave?" haha I love her though...I'm proud to say that I did not freeze then! I was actually one of the first people out of the building! We went back in after a few minutes, just a false alarm because they were testing the alarms. Although, during the rest of class, the fire alarm sounded about every 10 minutes! I got really annoying after a the first few!

Jury Duty

Yes, I was called this week to serve jury duty on top of everything else going on in my life! School has been really crazy so when I received the summon, I about fell off my chair! This week, we had two scheduled exams! I luckily only had to serve yesterday and my tests were on Tuesday and today. It was a pretty interesting process to be honest with you. You go into the courtroom and they began the interviewing process. I just couldn't believe some people... you could tell they were saying just about ANYTHING to get out of being selected! Some lady all snotty said, "I just don't think I believe in our Judicial system." right to the judge! It was really funny to see the reaction on the judge's face. Needless to say, that lady wasn't picked so I guess she got what she wanted... humm some people. Well I found this funny cartoon that relates somewhat to my experience this week. :') Enjoy!

The Man Rules

The Man Rules

At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down

Finally , the guys' side of the story.

( I must admit, it's pretty good.)

We always hear " the rules" From the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.
These are our rules!Please note.. these are all numbered "1 " ON PURPOSE!

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat.You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down.You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports: It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.Let it be.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one:

Subtle hints do not work!

Strong hints do not work!

Obvious hints do not work!

Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do.Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are.Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

1. You can either ask us to do somethingOr tell us how you want it done. Not both.If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials...

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT
need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched.We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really .

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball or golf.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

Thank you for reading this.

Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight; But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

I hate you Punxsutawney Phil

Well, If you hadn't heard, that stupid rat from PA came out this morning and declared another 6 more weeks of winter. I am just so sick of this cold! It is so miserable and pointless! All the winter brings is disease and car accidents. Maybe if I had money to enjoy our state's slopes, I would think different. I did enjoy the other weekend playing in the snow up at my family's farm. But I think I am just ready for it to be over! Weather forecasters have been wrong before, who are we to trust a groundhog named Phil? Okay, I realize I'm getting to carried away with all this...I'll try to look at the bright side of today. Maybe on TV later, they will show Groundhog Day with Bill Murray! I love that show! "Phil...Phil Conners, Ned Rierson! Now don't say you don't remember me cause I sure in heck fire remember you!" lol what a classic!
Well I hope you all have a great Groundhog day! Stay warm.
Oh, a special thanks to Rory for keeping up the blog! School has been super crazy.
