As I write this at 2 p.m. on Monday. the temperature has risen to 10 degrees. It is nice and sunny. We have another snowstorm hanging over our heads. Most of the weather people are hedging their bets as to whether we will get socked with one to two feet of snow Wednesday going into Thursday. All except for the guy on the local NBC affilliate, who on Sunday night said we will get 1 to 2 feet of snow. He might end up like looking like a genius or an idiot. One thing he did do is whip people up into a frenzy. It is good for business when you work in a supermarket but it still makes me laugh how much stuff people buy. Especially perishable stuff. I have lucked out with being off today and not having to go out at 6 a.m. in 2 degrees below 0 weather. Unlike tomorrow when the temperature will soar to 10. I will also luck out on Thursday with a day off if we do indeed get clobbered again. I will have to shovel though.
Let's see what else...I made shrimp scampi the other night. It turned out OK. I still have not got the right combination garlic, parsley and lemon juice but most importantly I did not over cook the shrimp. They were perfect. My pronunciation however of shrimp scampi the next day was suspect. Scrimp shampi. Shimp scrampi and shimp shampi. This was all to the delight of my co workers.
I think most of us will agree that texting while driving is dangerous. Is it really important that you tell someone or receive a text informing you that Bill just scratched his ass because he had an itch. Witness this self absorbed twit.
Junk mail department.
It amazes me what some people will fall for. I'm sure everybody gets junk email. You do have to be careful not to be fooled by some. Years ago I was fooled by an e greeting card. I had been online for about a year. I opened one and fortunately my was warned by my computers security program. What about that Nigerian prince. Maybe there's a boat load of princes. And there are some princess as well. Since when have I become their "dearest"? I am not your "dearest". I am not interested in your business proposition. Nor do I need your debt relief.
I am not looking for a "date" from "Facebook daters alert". I don't care how many babes are interested in me. Well I am interested in babes but lets be realistic.
I am not looking for "A new miracle herbal male enhancement supplement". Thank you very much. I'm fine.
Somebody named Mark Tunde is offering me compensation for my assistance. Did I slice some baloney for you?
Ho Chen Tung. No I didn't get your last email unless it was you who offered me the "knock off Gucci handbags at incredible low prices".
Someone named John Bishop sent me an email titled "Are you dead?". You'll have a long wait for an answer. I suppose it could be some kind of goverment program to put the dead back to work. C'mon you slackers! Get out of that grave and get to work. Just because you dead doesn't mean you can't get a job and contribute to the tax base.
I got an email from Jim Beam. Really? An email from a bottle of burbon?
Celine Bahlinger sent me an email regarding my "special hello". I didn't know I had a special hello. Unless you're talking about the one that could get me arrested.
I even got an email from the United Nations. The U.N. was ready to give me $500,000 because I have been scammed.
OK. My Patriots were beaten by the Jets. I have to admit that they were outplayed by the jets. This of course brought out all the Jets fans around here. Shooting their mouths off just like their fat load coach. A total classless bunch. I will be listening to the sports talk shows today to see if any of them show up after losing to the Steelers. That of course is doubtful. They're just a bunch of front runners. Rex Ryan, their coach, is still running his mout, pledging to be back next year to go after the championship. There's nothing wrong with that but saying nobody has a right to critisize him or his team. Oh just shut up Rex! You've been yapping and critisizing all season. Here's a tip. Have a salad. Toodie I will be rooting for the Packers. There's no love for the Steelers around here. They pulled the same crap years ago. They talked about mapping out their victory parade route before they even played the Patriots in a playoff game. They got spanked and the Pats went on to win the Super Bowl. Still this year they have acted with class but I can't root for them. Still thank you for beating the Jets.
That's all for now.
I'm outta here.
