Speaking of bad singing voices did you see XFactor last night? I think I’m going to cheer for Josh Krajcik now that Drew is gone. I still can’t take Rachael Crow, she has a phenomenal voice but I just can’t swallow the
“Shirley-Temple” persona. This wasn’t on the show but Drew made a public appeal for her fans to stop posting death threats on Twitter and Facebook to Paula and Nicole, two of the judges that voted her off. There is nothing like the wrath of a bunch of teenage voters who didn’t get their way.
The other night at Happy Joes my kids played games and won a pile of tickets. They exchanged the tickets for erasers, whistles, bracelets and other cheap and cheesy stuff. The best prizes of all were the Whoopie Cushions they each got for ninety tickets. We had so much fun taking turns sitting on the
cushions; our kitchen was filled with laughter. Just when I thought it couldn’t possibly get any funnier the kids called our dog Charlie into the kitchen and commanded him to sit on the Whoopie Cushion. That had to be one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Startled by the sound, Charlie looked at his behind, confused about what had happened. The kids were literally rolling around on the floor laughing!
Yesterday my son asked if he could wear a Star Wars necklace to school and I told him no. I explained that jewelry is not allowed at school. On the way home from school he said to me, “Mom, you are never going to believe
this, I was just sitting in class when all of a sudden this Star Wars necklace appeared on my neck.” When I told him he was telling a lie he told me that he wasn’t, that is was a magical necklace. When I checked his back pack I found a Transformer toy inside. He claimed it magically appeared just like the
necklace. This morning as I was “patting him down” before school, he asked where his Star Wars necklace and Transformer toy went. I explained that they really are magical and that they both disappeared. (Two can play this game: )
Yesterday I called Wal-Mart to inform them that my husband came home with an item that the clerk did not scan. I asked for customer service and explained the situation. I had looked up the item number on- line and had my credit card ready to pay for the purchase.
The CS rep. explained that Wal-Mart has no way to do such transactions over the phone. She told me I needed to bring the receipt in and that she could then take care of it. When I reminded her that the item was not scanned and therefore was not on the receipt she recanted and said that I should bring the item back to the store and then she could properly
take care of the issue. You try to be a good citizen, be honest and do the right thing and then stuff like this happens. It makes me want to walk into the store and stick the thirty dollar light saber where the sun don’t shine. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi you’re my only hope!
My book cover ideas have been sent to the artist – can’t wait to see what he comes up with. One of my book reviewers have been chosen and I was added to a “secret” Facebook page where only authors from Rainstorm Press can communicate.
Thanks for taking this ride with me passengers, it means the world to me.
