Let me say:  I LOVE 6TH GRADE CAMP!!!!!   ;D

My kid left Monday and does not come home until Thursday afternoon!  It's a bit odd with the little bugger not around, however, I don't have to keep the sex quiet and I have a hot date for dinner with the hubby.

I feel like I am going out on a school night.  *snerk*

You suspect geekiness is genetic when you're explaining your son how to get in a class bully's face and you finally get the message across by telling him to act as if he rolled a natural 20 to intimidate. Cleared everything right up.  True story.

Shoot - I know someone who had to expalin a merger to one of the staff by saying:  "Resistance is futile.  You will be assimilated."

An adult could not understand the concept of two offices combining in to one, but the assimilation - she got right away.

I blame the people.  It is up to each of us to improve ourselves in both body and mind.

Oh - it's totally the people's fault. 

Sure TV and now the internet have given us a quick way to get information but it's now up to the person to decide to be spoon fed the sound bites or go out and read and research.

In a total aside - one of my friends has just eaten one of the new KFC crispy Double Stacks and has thus far lived to tell about it

True story.  I used to be a morning supervisor for a fast food place and did most of the training for new staff.  We had hired this one teenage girl who had no idea about the concept of making change for a dollar bill.  I tried to explained it several times.  100 pennies make a dollar, a nickel is equal to five pennes, four quarters make a dollar, etc.  She just could not get it.  She was off the register really fast.

That's one of those little things that irks me. Register workers who can't count change.  ::)

I usually screw them up by giving them what seem like random amounts of over payment in order to get things back like even quarters.

I like it when they hand me back the change first saying "Here, I don't need this."

Then I just tell them to push the buttons and see why.

Exactly.  :-) 

BTW - I love the smell of Green Mountain Kenyan AA in the morning.  MMMMMM...coffee.

I have my happy little Speedway gas staion I stop at every weekday morning for coffee.  $1.26, zap of the Speedy Rewards card and I'm out the door.



I like Dunkin Donut coffee the best, but I have to hit Speedway because it's closer.  Starbucks and all that snooty coffee sucks.  Taste like it's burnt.

Agreed.  Dunkin rules, Starbucks is like drinking burnt acid and the reason I like the Kenyan is my office has a coffee maker and provides free coffee.  Free rocks unless it's Gardo offering a free knuckle sandwich.  That hurts...a lot...after you regain consciousness...for a long time.

As a rule, I don't care for Starbucks coffee, but when I'm in a mood for extra sugar & cream, I really do love their white chocolate mocha, extra hot with cinnamon. mmmmm.  Also, we have a locally owned coffee shop that makes a Mexican Mocha that is pretty awesome too.

Dunkin is good and cheaper, but my wife and wench signed us up for the Gevalia coffee "club?" several years ago and I really like most of their stuff brewed in my own coffee pot better than most outside stuff.

I drink the nasty, but free folgers and work and figure the cheap Walmart arabica is the next best coffee to the Gevalia offerings.

Hows that for eclectic coffee tastes....

The coffee on "Voyager of the Seas", cruise ship was absolutely the bomb. OMFG, that stuff was awesome. Dark, rich and kicked like a thermo-nuclear device. Yaaarrrrrr.

Up until I had that, Blue Mountain coffee had been my fave. Gawds I miss that stuff. Actually, I miss the ship too, but as 6th said in another post, I hate not being wealthy.

Blue Mountain coffee had been my fave.

Jamacian Blue Mountain! ... one of my faves and a rare treat. Repeated dittos on the poor thing.

Now I'm curious. What was the coffee on the ship?

Good luck and happy berfdayz, Blue.

Most awesome coffee ever is a local brand of Hawaiian coffee called "Tired Ass Coffee."  I've never seen it for sale anywhere outside the islands but d-a-y-u-m is it good.

I've had "I'm gonna get in trouble...I'm gonna start a fight..." playing repeatedly in my head since I got up this morning.  I wonder if it's an omen?
