Not Always Right

Someone on the soap forum I frequent posted a link to this hilarious blog: (The Customer Is) Not Always Right It's a collection of exchanges between customer service employees and crazy customers. I laughed so hard reading some of them. If you've ever worked in customer service you'll relate!

I should have done several posts over the past few days, but since I'm feeling lazy, here's a summary.

-I chopped off the tip of my thumb making Valentine's Day dinner for Eric. I was chopping on an angle so it cut off a lot of nail and just a tiny sliver of thumb, but it bled forever and hurt like crazy. I completed the meal using only one hand with my thumb wrapped up in layers of sterile gauze.

-After we had decided not to get each other gifts (since we're buying A HOUSE in less than two weeks) Eric surprised me with an iPhone. I thought "no gifts" actually meant no gifts. Hence the pressure I felt to finish cooking dinner, since that was my only present for him.

-The dinner turned out great despite the inadvertent amputation. Roasted racks of lamb marinated in Herbes de Provence and garlic. (When I asked the girl at the Wegmans butcher counter for marinade ideas she suggested "Herbs de Providence." I thought that might work better for Easter.) Roasted garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans on the side, and Symphony brownies for dessert.

-I really, really, really love my iPhone. Beyond all reason.

-Eric claims to be happy that I didn't buy him a present, because now he can use my guilt as leverage to get a new plasma TV. Apparently our 42" LCD that we bought 2 years ago is now a useless relic and would be an embarrassment in the new family room.

-I chose a paint color for the new kitchen, only to discover that it's currently the most trendy/popular color in North America. Trying to decide if that means I should pick something else, or if I should just give in and admit that I'm becoming a yuppie.

-We started packing. My soaping equipment, all our books and movies, and most of Sawyer's toys are done. I hate (HATE) moving. The whole process overwhelms me and stresses me out. I have never coped well with change, even when the change is something really exciting and good. So maybe spacing things out over a couple of weeks is the way to go. Or maybe we're just prolonging the agony.

My Religious Blog

This is my new favorite blog: My Religious Blog It reads a lot like an LDS version of Jack Handey's "Deep Thoughts." Here are a couple of my favorites.

I thought I overheard a couple of guys badmouthing the Church this morning and I got really mad.

But then it turned out they were actually just badmouthing the Lurch (that guy from the Adam’s Family), so I wasn’t really mad anymore.

Because man, I hate the Lurch!

Ideal Meeting Time
Some people think the best meeting block is from 9:00 – 12:00 because they like to take a nap after church.

Other people think the best meeting block is from 11:00 – 2:00 because they like to sleep in on Sunday morning.

But I think the ideal meeting time would be 11:30 – 12:00 because seriously…

King of Spain

You know how when you run into an ex you always self-centeredly hope your life is going better than theirs? No such luck for this girl. (There's a bit of adult language right at the beginning.)
