Things I've Learned Thursday..I mean, Friday

1) There's nutria in Oregon and I saw one at least 5 feet away. If you ask me, he looked a little Big Foot Jr. but maybe a bit cuter. From what I hear though, the gross factor is the tail and I didn't see the tail.

2) I know my bangs are too long when I sneeze and my hair flies up and stands at attention.

3) If someone pees in a reservoir, the reservoir will be emptied to the cost of 33k. (I bet if they added up the human pee vs the pee of flies, they'd find that there's more fly pee there than human.

4) When I'm editing or intensely figuring out a problem, I talk aloud to myself and it's not usually a small, quiet voice.

5) The men's bathroom is public places has got to be the worst, disgusting place to be, EVER!!! I feel sick just thinking about it.

6) Once I get a song stuck in my head, it's really STUCK!! Nothing like having Katie Perry's song Fireworks being whistled, hummed and sung.

7) Now that Sam is gone, the kitty Amelie and Selah, the shih tzu are now Girls Gone Wild. They are taking over my bed and my closet and bathroom sink.

8) I'm quickly irritated by certain radio promos.One of them being the Walmart commercials..."Hi my name is Robin..." Ugh! It was endearing to hear Robin's story the first time. Then the second time was still a bit touching but I'm so over it!!

9) I still love children's books that end with, "And they lived happily ever after..."

10) It makes me sad that I can't see my father on Father's day this year. North Carolina feels like it's a million miles away!

What have you learned?

As usual, I thought this was great! I must have more to learn though, because I don't know what nutria is. I'm off to google it.

I've learned that I always smile after visiting your blog! :-)

Just curious...how do you know men's public bathrooms are so nasty? LOL I know from my daughter's when Jerry had them out by himself. He made all the men wait so they could run in to go...
LOL I heard how nasty it was from my girls and all I could think was I hope you girls put lots of toilet paper down on the seats!! :-)

Have a great weekend!!

Blessings,
Jill

I've learned that friends can be literal, or internetal, and that I can make up words if I want to.

You've got to quit hanging around men's restrooms. If I've told you once I've told you a thousand . . .

Nutria??? Huh?!

I look forward to this weekly post of yours - you never disappoint!

Aren't those nutria gross? I had never heard of them until I lived in Oregon and saw one. It looked like a very, very large rodent. Or a beaver.

Nutria are large rodents, that are cooked and eaten by some(few) people, and they make a noise like crying babies...

I can never remember all 10 of your items when I start to comment. So, I've learned my failing memory applies itself to yet another application.

When I edit, I curse and sound like I'm annoyed, disgusted, frustrated and even angry at times. BUT I'm actually enjoying myself, just in a perverse fashion.

Men's rooms are gross, but the public ladies rooms at certain establishments rival them. Who ever would've thought about bad aim when it comes to women?

Love the countdown.

I'm not sure what to think about the reservoir -- I mean, how do they know someone has or hasn't?

I try to avoid public restrooms completely! Our library is next door to a mental health/homeless shelter and the folks come to use the library restrooms. Let's just say hygiene is not their top priority. Until threatened with a newspaper article, the library system was requiring its managers to clean them up. Now the county has agreed to pay for a cleaning system. Sheesh ... an MS in Library Science and Cleaning Toilets?

In this part of Oregon most of the Nutria where killed by the electric company because they were considered invasive species and they were damaging there stuff. They wouldnt move tham elsewhere. and That young man that peed should be paying on it forever.

GASP! After the grand exodus, I started putting my card files back together yesterday and I decided to re-print out all the addresses of my internet friends that I've cared about through the years. The program was done at home, using WORD 07. My present program is WORD 97 and my addresses are gibberish. Could you send me your address? I would have asked via email, but my pc lost everything else too. Amazing..

YOu have a wicked sense of humor and your writing is so unique. You remind me a bit of Jenny Matlock. When you get back into the groove of blogging after the wedding, the move, the new job, please stop by for a visit with me and Jenny too! Anne
