Thumbs Up to Wendy's for their new vanilla frosty. I had one at lunch today. It is scrumptious. I didn't expect it to be as good as the original, ever-so-slightly chocolate flavor, but oh man, it's good.
Thumbs Down to this crazy lady. Seriously, what is she smoking?? Everyone in town is furious about this story. I'm furious, and I don't even have kids! What she did is wrong on so many levels.
Thumbs Up to Repo, who still calls me and who is being very respectful of my wishes and actually might be listening to what I say to him and *gasp!* might actually care about my feelings. He might actually be making an effort, y'all. Please please, no bashing comments--he's being really nice, and it has taken a lot of work for us to get where we are. We've had to have the same conversation 43 times, but I think we are finally going somewhere. Baby steps! That is the name of the game. [This is the part where he would be saying, "Hey! It was your idea to break up, not mine!" -- so I am adding that for fairness' sake.]
Thumbs Down to Old Navy, Tide with Bleach laundry detergent, and possibly Whirlpool washing machines. Why? Well, I cleaned out my closet earlier this summer, throwing away old and ratty teeshirts. Old Navy had so many cute ones, so I went there to replace them. At this point, I have purchased about 10 shirts. I have lost five of them to one of the perpetrators mentioned above. Every time I do a load of brights, any of these new shirts have frigging bleach spots in the smack dab middle of the front.WTF?? So I have to throw away about $50-60 worth of brand new clothes. I have worn these shirts maybe 2 times. I don't know what is going wrong. I can't tell if it's cheaply made clothing, too-strong laundry detergent, my washing machine or my own stupidity. Now, I will say that one shirt was ruined because it was in contact with benzol-peroxide (I use it for zits, and I got soaked in the rain, so it dripped onto my shirt. Total pisser.). And I also lost a non-Old Navy shirt because it, too, had a bleach spot on the front. One of my coworkers said that I need to start filling the washer and putting the detergent in before I put the clothes in. So that is what I will do now. I am really baffled--I haven't done anything differently with laundry lately. And it only happens with the brights load--never the darks. Weird. Do you know what I am doing wrong? Anyone else had bad luck with Old Navy shirts? Or Tide? I wish I hadn't already worn/washed/cut off the tags, or else I would just take them back and complain. I don't even have the receipts anymore. And I don't even know who is to blame! Now I am terrified to do laundry!
Thumbs Up to Old Navy for having one of my ruined shirts still in stock on their website today. At least I can replace my baby blue with silver writing one.
Thumbs Down to Old Navy for not having the other four. I want my blue polos replaced! (I had to order this pink one instead.) And I want my purple one, but it is no longer offered! And neither is my seafoam green shirt like this!
Thumbs Up to Cafe Press for being the coolest shopping site ever. I ordered a bunch of Boston Terrier stuff today. I will share when it comes in.
Thumbs Down to Bloglines for not properly showing me when blogs are updated. I knew something was wrong when it told me that Jennster only had 2 posts in the last 2 weeks! So I'm actually even MORE behind than I thought because I haven't been checking many blogs--Bloglines never told me, I swear! Aaaarrrrgh!!!
That's the end of my ranting/raving today....
Tonight I am going out to dinner with K and hopefully meeting up with Mack Daddy of Wild Young'ns fame. He moved to Charleston, so I haven't hung out with him in a while. He is a huge pervert like me, so he will probably try to touch my "squishy parts". *rolls eyes* Those guys are so much fun, I hope I can hang out with all of them this weekend.
K wants to fix me up with a car salesman this weekend. I guess he met me and thought I was cute. I have no idea who this guy is. Apparently he didn't make much of an impression on me. No offense to any car salesmen reading this, but that's not really who I picture myself with. But if he's friends with K, he will be cool. That I know for sure. I feel bad saying no, even though I don't really want to date this guy.
Other than that, I don't have much planned for the weekend. Camera shopping. Mailing out a care package for Anne. Playing with Sammy. Reading some books. Maybe some cooking or a gym trip. If anything really exciting happens, I will let you know on Monday.
Have great weekends, everyone! If I have time, I will share some funny videos with you before I leave today. Gotta go read some blogs now...
