happy new years

okay, technically it's hours away. but, better early.

hope everyone has a safe and fun time tonight.
it's just another day for me. i don't drink nor do i want to be around a bunch of drunks nor want to drive around people who've had too many. so, i stay home.

**i have nothing against people who drink. i used to myself. my problem is people who can't say or know or don't care when they've had too much. saw a friend get hit by a drunk driver. he didn't make it, his wife is in a wheelchair for life. the drunk walked away without a scratch.**

things i learned from my father

this started as a weird conversation with my sister....

1. how to curse like a marine. simple reason~ he's an ex-marine vietman era.
2. mass punishment is the best way to find out who actually did it.
3. part 1 if you can't pay for it with cash, it's probably not needed. debit cards are cash to him.
    part 2 one credit card is it. use it to buy dinner once a month. otherwise don't touch it unless it's a true
4. music is music. if you like it, it's good music.
5. let your kids be themselves to a safe point. blue hair is harmless. our rule was do good in school.

added #6 how to tell if someone is trying to BS you.

5 fashions i hate

everyone has those styles they you hate. here's mine.

1. skinny jeans
it takes a certain body type to pull these off. i don't think it exists. or everyone hasn't found the right size. muffintops on someone who is 5'6" and 100lbs shouldn't be. and guys wearing them low should be illegal.
2. white pants/skirts
i don't want to see your underwear. nuf said.
3. strapless/halter/"sexy" neckline with a regular bra
it doesn't look sexy. it looks rather cheap and trashy. buy the proper bra for the shirt.
4. super baggy pants worn low
again, i don't want to see your underwear. though, watching you trying to run across the street is mildly amusing.
5. short shorts with a huge thick coat
maybe this is a Florida thing. you see girls wearing super short shorts, flip flops, a tank top and a huge parka-like jacket. just wha?!?!?!?! does the bottom half not get cold what so ever.

this years totem is next years meh.

i just read this. it makes total sense. they were talking about why you shouldn't buy the most expensive, high demand must have items for Xmas or really in general. cabbage patch kids, tickle me Elmo, video game system bundle packs, the newest wonder phones, etc. Once xmas is over, you can get them everywhere and usually the price drops.  Anyone who has done their time in retail knows this. i, for one, live by the wait 6 monthes and see. it'll have the bugs fixed, the price will go down, etc.

#19 will miss

ugly Florida tomatoes.
you can get tomatoes from Florida in many parts of the us. but, only in Florida can you get these homely fruits. they taste a lot better than they look. or most other tomatoes in general. but, for some reason, they don't send them to other states.

#18 won't miss

commercials for appliance direct. i know people who worked there and said it's a living hell. the commercials are too. between this guy yelling "i love appliances" and the woman in the 80's mini-dress with a knee brace. it should be used as a form of punishment.

#18 will and #17won't miss

sea world
i have a love/hate deal with this place. the same way i look at any zoo. it's so close, you'd visit every year in school. i don't go very often anymore. and, i drive passed here at least once a week.
