Morning Thoughts

Nothing makes my day more than walking into work and being greeted by the aroma of smoldering cigarette butts...why is it that disgusting ashtrays are placed right outside doorways? And that people have to stand right there, in the doorway, on the path, smoking??

I should have a tape recorder in my car in the mornings. I have some great thoughts but by the time the day gets underway, I forgets. This morning I sent myself a text message as a reminder...yeah, geeky I know.

So this morning there was a Comcast van tailgating me ( love that so much) and when I was able to pull over and let him pass me, on the back of the truck was one of those "How's my driving? Call 1-800-etc-etc. and get me in trouble" messages. Which got me to wondering, do people ever call? Have YOU ever called? I did once. I don't remember what happened, it was a couple of years ago, and I am lucky if I can remember what I had for breakfast, never mind some random incident like that. So anyway, then I got to thinking, wouldn't it be HILARIOUS to put that message across the back of my car? I mean, it would totally crack me up if I saw that on someone's car...I guess you'd have to have been there (i.e., in my head and trust me, that would be a very SCARY experience).

Not a great knitting week - more like 2 rows knitted, 1 row ripped out. Hoping to get caught up this weekend. I haven't worked on my lace in over a month. I'll probably save it for v
acation at this point.

My buddy Lincoln may be looking for a new home...if you haven't already seen it over on Lora's blog...
Lincoln my friend, you are in SOOOOO much trouble!! I hope mom can find it in your heart to forgive you, but it's probably going to take some time. You need to be extra nice and extra good or they might send you back to my house!!

Well, that's about all that is happening here...I have to get back to work...I promise a good update really soon!! xo

Hey M...I think I've only wanted to call a number like that on cars that DON'T have a sticker. The ones that have a sticker seem to mostly drive pretty responsibly (maybe under pressure of THE STICKER), but that minivans and giganto pick up trucks are the ones that I see weaving all around and talking on cell phones and driving in the middle of the road. Typical, huh? Good post! (and YUCK on the cigarette butts...blah!)

Oh, I called--an AT&T truck was *flying* through a school zone early this year. I called and finally got a supervisor who was able to figure out exactly which truck (they have GPS on the trucks, apparently) and got that guy in trouble.

(Rightly so--40 MPH in a school zone, with kids present?)
