>YouTube Video Hilarious, must watch.

>today so far

>Saturday Em and I went to the city. I have that post saved, awaiting publication. 

Today I had an eyedoctor appointment so I convinced Stitch to take me to the train later, the light was broken by the high school so a BPO was there directing traffic. He looked very happy to be standing there waving idiots er I mean drivers through the intersection. 
I missed the train some idiot (that would be me) forgot to double check the schedule, there were more police at the train station, the coffee shop was broken into last night (seems like a stupid thing to do on a Sunday night). 
Then I get to the eye place and the doctor checks me and *sigh* it appears I have been wearing my contacts too much and so I have to not wear them for a few days then go back and get my eyes checked and then I will have to only wear them 6 days a week. That means I will have to get glasses too. I will most likely have to get money out of my savings for that.

When I got to work, someone told me that sparks had been coming out of the outlet, so part of the office has no power. Not my part dog gone it! And our printer is out of service, I had to put a sign on it, then Herman was making fun of the sign so I put another sign on it, Don’t touch this, this means you Herman. I was waiting for him to complain about me putting his name on the sign so I could say to him, “Don’t F*** with me, I’m a bitch and I’m in a crappy mood!” But he didn’t. So I didn’t.

So that is my day so far. How is your day?

>Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife and Daughter

This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day.

I just couldn’t help but sending this along. Too funny.
