What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job?

I supposedly team teach English, but really I just sit there while my teammate teaches English. At least it's only half an hour.

What is your dream job?

School librarian.

I read an insane book last night about proposals. How did your wedding proposal go?

I've been proposed to, but never very seriously. My high school boyfriend called me at work senior year and asked if I wanted to get married and live on a Marine base with him and go to community college with the other Marine wives. I opted no. In fact, I freaked out inwardly and then broke up with him a couple of days, later.

Which is the more annoying term... "hubby" or "my man"? (These were featured heavily in that dumb book).

UGH! How do you choose?! I'd have to pick "hubby" because I see it more often.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or a (an?) UFO? If yes, please explain.

I worked at a Chinese food place in high school and both my friend Tamara and I saw a man and his son go to a table in the back (on separate occasions.) Both of us got waters and menus for them and then realized that they weren't there when we got to the table. That happened a couple times to each of us. I'm sure it wasn't ghosts, though? I don't really believe in them. But if there ARE ghosts, they don't scare me. They seem to keep to themselves and I refuse to believe that they can hurt me in any way.

I’m buying a house within the next few months… what do you wish you would have known about your house before you moved in?

Don't own a house. I'd want to know if the neighbors are going to be dicks if you don't mow that often.

What songs take you immediately back to high school?

"The Sign" by Ace of Base
"My Baby Loves Me Just the Way that I Am" by Martina McBride
"Ice, Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice (that takes me back to football games and dances freshman year.)

Does your city have one of those radio stations that plays Christmas music around the clock? What day is appropriate for them to begin doing that?

November 1st. I loooove Christmas music!! Josh hates it, though. >:(

What is something awesome for me to get my almost seven year old niece for Christmas?

Food Chain Friends. They're friends but they eat each other!

What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2010? How about the worst?

I've barely read this year!! Best was probably "The Underneath" by Kathi Appelt. Or "Stitches" by David Small. Or "A Secret History." Worst was "My Life and Hard Times" by James Thurber (boring) and "East of Eden" (just a disappointment because I wanted to love it as much as I loved "Grapes of Wrath." Not even close.)


message 3: by Tom (new)

Tom Foolery (tomfoolery) What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job? Get annoyed and frustrated with the same beureaucratic bullshit i got annoyed and frustrated with yesterday, and still can't do anything about.

What is your dream job? Retirement.

I read an insane book last night about proposals. How did your wedding proposal go? Pretty well. Proposed the night before her birthday. For weeks i'd ask what she wanted for her birthday, and she'd say "a ring" and i'd act awkward and embarassed. That night i...ah, you're not really interested. It went well, let's just leave it at that.

Which is the more annoying term... "hubby" or "my man"? (These were featured heavily in that dumb book). Hubby.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or a (an?) UFO? If yes, please explain. UFO. Guy in the car says "what's that?" Me and other guy say "a streetlight." First guy says, "why's it moving?" We were, however, relatively close to an airstrip at the time, and i'm personally of the belief that most UFOs are airplanes that people see from unfamiliar angles.

I’m buying a house within the next few months… what do you wish you would have known about your house before you moved in? All the little half-assed things the seller did to make the place look good before i bought it.

What songs take you immediately back to high school? I can't remember back that far.

Does your city have one of those radio stations that plays Christmas music around the clock? What day is appropriate for them to begin doing that? My car has an aux in for an ipod, or Pandora on my phone. Radio sucks(except for NPR).

What is something awesome for me to get my almost seven year old niece for Christmas? An electronic keyboard with pre-recorded songs on it. You'd think it would be a drum set, but a little kid banging away on a keyboard while it plays giftmas music and they sing along out of key is the perfect gift for a brother or sister.

What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2010? How about the worst? I've read sadly little this year.


Servius  Heiner What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job?

I have been sentenced to "sensitivity training" apparently I'm a bit rough around the edges. Every morning between 6 am and 6:45 I have to "act out" the appropriate way to correct other people. It was only supposed to be for a two weeks but I have been going now for almost 3 months {:-/

What is your dream job?

Ranger on Kodiak island.

I read an insane book last night about proposals. How did your wedding proposal go?

I did it over the phone. there was a long pause and then she said, "Well I guess."

Which is the more annoying term... "hubby" or "my man"? (These were featured heavily in that dumb book).

My man just sounds so ghetto to me.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or a (an?) UFO? If yes, please explain.

Neh.

I’m buying a house within the next few months… what do you wish you would have known about your house before you moved in?

I wish I would have know that the fucking Brady bunch was going to move in down the road.

What songs take you immediately back to high school?

Blind Melon
Smashing pumpkins
Stone temple poilet

Does your city have one of those radio stations that plays Christmas music around the clock? What day is appropriate for them to begin doing that?

Never if you want to listen to that shit go hang yourself... I mean, wouldn't it be better for you to buy the CD or download from itunes?

What is something awesome for me to get my almost seven year old niece for Christmas? Lesbian Porn. Don't want her to grow up being ruined by men do you?

What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2010? How about the worst?
Best Way of kings.
Worst... Not sure I'll have to get back to you on that one.

Rusty (rustyshackleford) | 2198 comments What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job?

Deal with that pug-faced bastard.

What is your dream job?

Linguistic anthropologist

I read an insane book last night about proposals. How did your wedding proposal go?

One night, I asked the wife (well, girlfriend at the time, of course) what she wanted for dinner. She chose corn dogs, salad and ice cream sandwiches. We went back to my apartment, I chased my roommates out, and we enjoyed our gourmet meal. Then I popped the question. I know, it’s romantic as shit.

Which is the more annoying term... "hubby" or "my man"? (These were featured heavily in that dumb book).

I can't force myself to care. But they're both pretty gay.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or a (an?) UFO? If yes, please explain.

Not I

I’m buying a house within the next few months… what do you wish you would have known about your house before you moved in?

I’m moving into my first house in two weeks. I’m sure you’ll hear about it if something’s amiss.

What songs take you immediately back to high school?

Anything by Pearl Jam (I just discovered that they’re still around. Who knew?), Stone Temple Pilots or Big-Head Todd and the Monsters

Does your city have one of those radio stations that plays Christmas music around the clock? What day is appropriate for them to begin doing that?

I don’t know if my new city has one of those stations. I do like certain Christmas music though, and have my own playlist.

What is something awesome for me to get my almost seven year old niece for Christmas?

My son is seven and he loves Star Wars, so there you go – Star Wars figures.

What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2010? How about the worst?

The best was either Infected or Good Omens. The worst was Impact, because I expect much better from Preston.

smetchie | 5731 comments What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job?
wipe the toilet seat because people are fucking pigs around here

What is your dream job?
buyer for antique jewelry store or some other title that would get me into old-money estate sales before the “regular” people. Or maybe personal shopper for some very nice rich person. Do they have nice rich people?

I read an insane book last night about proposals. How did your wedding proposal go?
begrudgingly. I had already whined so much about not being engaged already that I sucked all the life and joy out of it. My engagement ring was a Christmas present.

Which is the more annoying term... "hubby" or "my man"? (These were featured heavily in that dumb book).
I don’t think I can choose. Maybe hubby but only slightly

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or a (an?) UFO? If yes, please explain.
yeah I think so. A ghost. I’m afraid of ghosts.

I’m buying a house within the next few months… what do you wish you would have known about your house before you moved in?
that the guy who lived there before us chopped up his whole family with an axe. Just kidding. If that happened I don’t want to know about it. I wish I’d known that one of my neighbors was a fucking prissy bitch-bag who would judge me.

What songs take you immediately back to high school?
The Cure, Depeche Mode, Faith No More. I’m too lazy to look up the song titles.

Does your city have one of those radio stations that plays Christmas music around the clock? What day is appropriate for them to begin doing that?
dear God. Yes they do. I wish they wouldn’t start until about 1-2 weeks before Christmas. I hate how we drag Christmas out. It’s not such a great holiday that I should have to experience it for 6 weeks.

What is something awesome for me to get my almost seven year old niece for Christmas?
Kung Zhu Battle Hamsters and the special forces battle arena. Because hamsters look hilarious in battle armor.

What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2010? How about the worst?
Best: Outlander or The Syringa Tree: A Novel
Worst: Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too?. Eric Carle is a fucking moron.

Harry  (harry_harry) What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job?
Other peoples jobs...that or explain to them how to do it

What is your dream job?
Billionaire Philanthropist

I read an insane book last night about proposals. How did your wedding proposal go?
So so. I ruined the surprise by telling her I had to go out to pick up a stick. Little did I know that saying the word stick to someone who wants a ring is a dead give away for the stick that is used to measure a ring!!

Which is the more annoying term... "hubby" or "my man"? (These were featured heavily in that dumb book).
Hubby. People who say hubby also call their children "kiddos" and other cheesy shit like that.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or a (an?) UFO? If yes, please explain.
No, but my mom swears she did. I forget all the details, but it was something like this.

She was driving down a long straight stretch of highway in Florida when some weird light came rushing down the road. At first she thought it was another car, but the closer it got she couldn't figure out what the hell it was. It zoomed by her and wrecked the electronics in her car and killed the battery in her watch. Weird shit I know, but my mom is also a little wacky too.


I’m buying a house within the next few months… what do you wish you would have known about your house before you moved in?
I like a house that backs to trees. One of my co-workers bought a house that did just that until a few days ago when the gas company came through and chopped all of them down. Something about the roots corroding the pipes. Now she has a big wide open view of the people who live behind her. Before the trees coming down, she said you could never see the house.

Another friend has a house that is probably 30 to 40 yards away from a main road. He has a ton of tress blocking the view. The county keeps sending letters about meeting planning to widen the road and thus taking his trees and privacy down.


What songs take you immediately back to high school?
Check the Rhime - A Tribe Called Quest

Does your city have one of those radio stations that plays Christmas music around the clock? What day is appropriate for them to begin doing that?
Oh yeah we do. I was stuck in a job for a couple of years with a bunch of ladies who listened to the station all day regardless of what time of year it was. I was about to kill myself having to listen to the god awful crap all day, but when they switched to Christmas music...I was ready to take a hostage.

What is something awesome for me to get my almost seven year old niece for Christmas? Moon shoes!

These look awesome! I need a pair that can support my weight!

smetchie | 5731 comments Tom, Harry's survey reminded me that there was a line I was going to steal from you. What was it again? something like explain to them how to do it with a hammer??

Tom Foolery (tomfoolery) I'm always funny.


If you are unclear of the meaning of the phrases 'file will be denied' or 'not eligible for modification' please don't hesitate to contact me directly, and i will explain them to you with a stick.

Is it too goddamn much to ask that when i put a note in the system, the next fucking note in the system isn't left by some dipshit describing how they did the exact fucking thing i just noted that they shouldn't do? Seriously? Idiots.

message 13: by Erika (new)

Erika | 202 comments What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job?

Read surveys people fill out who have had their cars serviced at dealerships. Although we get funny ones every now and then about either the bitch at the reception desk or the hot babe at the reception desk.

What is your dream job?

Restaurant critic. Or couch tester.

I read an insane book last night about proposals. How did your wedding proposal go?

I pretty much just said hey, I think we should stick with this thing. Like for good. What do you think? And it was a done deal. I think we're one of those couples where we're both kind of wack jobs but together we make a sane person.

Which is the more annoying term... "hubby" or "my man"? (These were featured heavily in that dumb book).

Hubs. In replace of a name.

Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost or a (an?) UFO? If yes, please explain.

I don't believe in ghosts, I don't believe in ghosts, I don't believe in ghosts. Or I'm too afeared to talk about it.

I’m buying a house within the next few months… what do you wish you would have known about your house before you moved in?

The neighbor situation, definitely. In my last house we lived next door to dealers. There was a lot of foot traffic. On the other side was an older guy who was very nice but very lonely. And liked to talk about having a gun very loudly around the dealers. I would build my house pretty much anywhere if you could guarantee me I would never have neighbors.

What songs take you immediately back to high school?

Soul Asylum - Runaway Train, Blind Melon - No Rain (is that the right title?).

Does your city have one of those radio stations that plays Christmas music around the clock? What day is appropriate for them to begin doing that?

I think ours starts in November. Lots of people hate it which I understand. In the privacy of my own house though I blast that shit. I love Christmas.

What is something awesome for me to get my almost seven year old niece for Christmas?

If you love the kid and don't care if the parents are mad - a drum set. Also even if you do care it's a good choice because of all the points you score with the kid.

What is the best book you’ve read so far in 2010? How about the worst?

Best - The Burning Time
Worst - Ford County


The Crimson Fucker (tcf123) | -3 comments What is the dumbest thing you have to do every day at your job?

Odds of her getting those moon shoes and a Zhu Battle Hamster are REALLY good. FOR REALS, NOT SARCASTIC

smetchie | 5731 comments Mine was serious Kristina! My daughters love their Kung Zhu battle hamsters and constantly beg me for the arena (which I'm not buying because it will be broken in a matter of minutes.)

Stina (stinalee) | 653 comments @ Smetchie!! I think it's a great idea... I'm totally going to get her some. I love being the aunt, because I can buy things that are broken withing a matter of minutes and I don't even care!!


message 18: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 5731 comments Buy her a girly Zhu Zhu pet because the Kung Zhu are all boy colors. Plus the pink hamster looks even funnier in battle armor. I love those fucking things. I have no idea how they make their butts wiggle like a real hamster but it's SO CUTE!


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Kids are CRAZY for Zhu Zhu pets and their accessories. It's true.

And Pillow Pets.

smetchie | 5731 comments I was originally going to suggest a Pillow Pet because my daughter loves hers but the website is so offensive I'm going to have a hard time forcing myself to buy another one. Plus they make her head sweat.


message 21: by Tom (new)

Tom Foolery (tomfoolery) Buy it now. Sounds like those things might be this years hot toy. If so they'll be impossible to find after mid November.

message 29: by Tom (new)

Tom Foolery (tomfoolery) I'm telling you... an electronic keyboard with pre-recorded music on it beats drums (heh) any day. Especially for very young kids. They get bored with and give up on the drums because they can't make them sound good. With the keyboard, they can play music that sounds like music (and bang away on the keys and sing off-key at the same time) and make a lot more noise, for a lot longer. Also, if it can record samples or change the sound made by the keys...lots of different ways to experiment. I was required to set up a toy keyboard and a toy drum set at the front of my store every year at giftmas. The drums weren't so bad but i hated that stupid little keyboard.


message 30: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 5731 comments Tom's right. We have one of those keyboards. Super Duper annoying.

Yeah, you can get "Crocs" at Dollar Tree!! Whoo!!!

Drums are a bad idea unless you are also getting her lessons. Drums + Lessons = Awesome!!

But there are Pillow Pets at Fred Meyer, so you don't have to go to the website. Unless you want the large size.

But yes, the site sucks! It has a pop-up when you try to exit out of it and it doesn't want to let you leave!!! BULLSHIT!
