Expiration Dates are for Squares!

Hahaha, a co-worker sent an email to me today which I had sent on February 5, 2008 to the entire company. I had totally forgotten I even sent this email, and I just thought it was kind of funny, and somewhat disgusting. I totally remember this now, but it was kinda a blast from the past. Even my signature is different, cause I am in a new position at this company now.

Anyway, just thought it was funny, and wanted to save it.

If anyone is looking for their Meadow Gold 2% Reduced Fat Milk in the fridge, they’re not going to find it.

I apologize if someone was conducting an experiment on milk curdles, or maybe someone simply prefers their milk aged a bit.

If that’s the case, come find me, I’ll buy you new milk. Otherwise, milk with an expiration date of 12/07/2007 was begging to be tossed out. If the date wasn’t enough, the buildup of curdling milk towards the top did it.

If you guys can try to pay attention to expiration dates and stuff in the fridge, that would be awesome! It would be a shame if some unsuspecting person decided to steal someone else’s milk, only to find that it’s too thick to swallow; resulting in a terrible death.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

I had lunch with my sister Megan today, and we talked about a lot of important things. I've kind of felt like I'm stuck in a rut lately, and I haven't had a very good way of getting out of it. Megan helped shed some light on some things in my life that will stay with me forever. She was able to help me realize a couple things that I needed to realize. I have to say, I love my sister Megan. She is my best friend. Sometimes she drives me nuts, and I her, but for the most part, we are truly close friends. She understands me in lots of ways that my other sisters don't, and that's special for me. I feel like this is a very positive beginning to me getting out of the rut that I've kind of been stuck in for quite some time.

Anyway, moving on.

So, most of you already know, I went against everything I have ever been taught, told, and chastised for from my parents teachings.

I bought a motorcycle...

And oh man, it was worth the 2 weeks of banishment from my parents abode. They wanted to disown me for life, but, I'm irresistible and lovable for them to stay away for long, so they have welcomed me back into the fold. There is still a little bitterness there, but, with time, all wounds will heal.

Can I just say, I absolutely LOVE having a motorcycle. The freedom, and exhilarating feeling it gives you while riding is incredible. It makes going to work fairly enjoyable, just because I know I get to drive it there.

Here's a picture of the beaut.

You need to CLICK the Picture to SEE my bike:

Yes, it's the one closest to the Camera, the black one, not the one I'm looking at in the picture.

Anyway, Just wanted to show it off a little bit.

Well, things are going well, things are looking up, and I look forward to the coming months. I am going to rock my life in the coming summer. (That's a good thing you old decrepits reading this.)
