So this post is gonna be really...really...really...random. random, as in, I'm still wondering what it's going to be about. but my fingers keep moving, and words are still forming, so what the heck, let's do this thing.

So I went to work tonight, and lately I've been picking up these little isms that customers generally display. por ejemplo, whenever I want to ask if they found everything, it usually happens like this:
"Did you find--"
And then I keep going, "...everything you were looking for?" and then there's an awkward silence, cause they've already answered, and usually, just to fill the empty space, they end up answering the question again. for a long LONG time I've wanted to do it like this:
"Did you find--"
"--a leprechaun?"
Just to see the look on their face. priceless. maybe I will someday. I bet if I did they'd wait for me to finish the question next time. then again, there probably wouldn't be a next time, cause I'd probably get fired. it would be so worth it.

So, I love winter. I love winter like I love my computer. but, just as with my computer, I am beginning to love it less and less. winter has been here a long long time, and I really really really just want to roll down my window while driving 60 mph and stick my head out the window like a dog and just let the wind whip through my hair. I'm so excited for that! it's the very first thing on the "what to do when Spring gets here" list. it also happens to be 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. 6th, 7th, 8th, and all the way to 100th is to lounge in my newly acquired hammock. :D

I'm also excited for my birthday, which is coming up. curiously, as I've grown older, my enjoyment of Christmas has faded (I think it's because it's not as magical as it was way back in the day when I was a gullible child) but my enjoyment of my birthday is the same as it was when I was a small child. I do love my birthday! :D and this year, I'll be turning 19. it's a bittersweet birthday. this is the last birthday I will have to be a teenager. on my next birthday, I'll be turning 20 years old!! I'll be...I'll be PERSON!! so I'm determined to enjoy this one with everything I've got in my still-for-a-little-while-young bones. after this birthday, I'll also be able to swipe alcohol at the store. it seems a strange thing to long for, but you have no idea how annoying it is to have to call a manager up every single time somebody wants to purchase alcohol. also, apparently I LOOK old enough, so everybody brings all their alcohol into my lane. curses.

My car is in the shop this week, getting fixed I hope. I hope to get it back on Wednesday, fully repaired and looking good as new. I've even driven by the place where it is to see if I could catch a glimpse of my car, and never did see him. I'd better have him back by the time the weather gets good, though, cause I don't think sticking my head out the window of anybody else's car while I drive would be as magical.

Anyway, this was just sort of an update on my life...or whatever you wanna call it...there was absolutely zero thinking beforehand on this. I'm sorry, all of you. this post wasn't really anything. you may now return to your lives.

Wowies! This blog reminds me of some of the blogs I used to crank out... Now they're all serious. I need to splurge sometime and get a classic out there.

Actually, sticking one's head out the car window whilst driving at 60 mph isn't all it's cracked up to be... Usually, it feels like someone trying to suffocate you with a huge pancake or something (ok, I don't know where the pancake-part comes it, but that's the best way to describe it right now). And a word to the wise, don't try it when you're on a county road... I don't think I need to explain why, lol.

You have a new hammock? Score! I've had a hammock for a while and I can assure you that it is worth all the trouble of finding two perfectly-spaced trees to hang it between, hehe.

I have an inexplicable urge to write a biography about 'Bob'. I haven't decided who Bob is yet, but I'm curious about him. Is he married with two kids? Is he a white-collar worker? Has he ever played guitar hero while intoxicated?

Good blog! Catcha later!

Yeah, I got a hammock! in Mexico. they've got some really good sales people down there. he hung it up right on the beach and told me to try it out. I did...and I was sold. :)

Randomness is a good thing I think! It really is what keeps the world interesting for everyone! = )

I like the idea of the head dog tongue thing out the window... I've only done it once.. that was going down the free way at 75... (I wasn't driving) and a bee hit me in the face.. I think I'll try it at 65 though.
