Just Stuff

Well the big news for today is that I'M IN!!! I'm finally in Ravelry! Of course, I haven't had enough time to do anything about it, but it's still cool! By the way, this post is going to be very random. I'm a little tired and am just throwing this together.

The other day I saw this on a car... I don't know if you can see it on the roof of the car...

Here's a better look:

I didn't know people still used huge, magnetized antennae like that still! Wow!

The other Saturday, I cooked up some bacon and eggs. Grace was on a food cabinet that overlooks the kitchen. Here, she was watching the steam rise, and listening to the hiss of the bacon frying...

A second later I had to move the bacon, it made a bunch of hissing noises and she was GONE. She didn't appreciate it nearly as much as I did. Speaking of Grace, she's actually sleeping on my chair that I use at the computer. I'm using hard little stool. It's just so hard to interrupt such a sweet (sometimes) looking thing! Well, I told you this post would be random. And I think I didn't disappoint!

Fall and bad resumes

Although it's fall, there are still a couple of good days left. On a nice day I was able to take a picture of this great moss covered tree.

I just love how it hangs!

You can definitely see a difference in the mornings though. The sun comes up later and goes to bed earlier, and there's a lot more fog.

And then there are the beautiful colors...

As long as I have wood and build a fire in the evening (or morning, depending), I'm nice and toasty!

And now a little something that I would like to call "Why Can't I Get A Job?"
The following statements are actually from resumes people put into a system to look for work. Some people don't care and just put in whatever, and some people just seem to be clueless. Some may be legit, but the are funny! Grammar and spelling is how they wrote it. Enjoy.

I have satellite!

I will admit that my computer has been dormant for a while now. I haven't been on it regularly for one main reason: satellite TV. Mom got me satellite for my birthday (she's tired of coming over here and not being able to watch police shows, Queer Eye, and professional poker), and Rayleen got me DVR! It's been so cool!! I can watch a show, record another and when I need to use the bathroom, I don't have to wait for the commercial - I can pause it and then SKIP the commercials!

When the landlords agreed to letting me get a dish here, their only concern was that it would get put in an "ugly" place. And the dish people didn't disappoint:

Really, could it be in a more obvious place?!? Now the landlords drive by it every day and I see it through my windows. Also, one of the guys setting up the system was creepy and started hitting on me. He then called me from his personal cell phone later that day. Great. I actually had to start locking my door at night - just in case. You never know!

But even with the little hiccups, check out what I can watch now!
Andy Griffith!

CSI Miami! The famous head-tilt! (That guy is so annoying... but I can watch it if I want now!)

What Not To Wear!

And the Geico gecko!!! This is my personal favorite picture... hehehe...

Anyway, it's all very exciting. I can watch NFL now, and those who know me knows how important that is. And now Mom will have plenty to watch when she visits. Thanks to Mom and Rayleen!!!
