Not Me Monday Tuesday

Okay, here it is... my procrastination post that should have been posted yesterday. But other priorities got in the way and I just plain did not have time to finish it.

Last week, I was not completely shocked when I saw this van. I was making a quick stop at Goodwill to check out their preschool games, but I was not sidetracked when I saw this van pull into the parking lot. Brand new van, I might add. The license tabs were January, so this van must have been purchased only a couple months ago. I did not see drink cups, bags upon bags upon more bags piled to the ceiling of the van. I was not thoroughly baffled as to how this lady found a place to sit to drive this van. I was not bummed that I'd left my camera at school. Oh, I have my phone. Maybe that will work. I did not try multiple times to get a shot through the windshield, so I didn't have to be obvious. With the sun blazing through the window, it was difficult to get a distinguishable photo. Realizing that I had to go to extreme measures, I did not turn on the camera mode on my camera and step outside my car. So I didn't look like an idiot, I did not pretend to be talking on my phone as I took some pictures. Of course, I was not talking out loud, carrying on a conversation with no one.

Mission accomplished. I entered the store and as I began my search for games, I did not overhear a store employee ask the van lady, "Oh, is this your first time here today?" Hmmm.... so that's where all those bags came from....

As I grabbed a quick bite to eat in the Burger King drive thru, I was not completely embarrassed by what I heard. And it wasn't even for ME to be embarrassed about. There was one car ahead of me, filled with what appeared to be teenagers. Now, I've never worked fast food, so I don't know if this is a common occurrence, but these teens were not extremely obnoxious as they ordered. They were rapping, saying their order very quickly, and then said, "Did you get that?" to the girl on the other end. Then they would turn around and look at me and just laugh. The BK worker came back with, "I'm sorry. I guess I must not be a very good listener. You'll have to repeat that, and speak in a normal voice." These kids did not proceed to order as they were before, rapping and speed-talking. After this went on for a couple minutes, they finally said, "Did you get that??? Thank you." and then they sped off.

When I approached the ordering window??? Not a female voice that greeted me. I'm sure she got an early lunch break or something! That day I did not develop a new level of respect for fast food employees.

Well, it wasn't a whole lot to wait for, but at least I have a blog post for today this week! Visit MckMama's blog to read more Not Me Monday posts!

Not Me Monday

I am not going to postpone my Not Me Monday post until tomorrow. I do not have a bunch of things to do tonight, and I do not have to get them done before school tomorrow.

Just just a taste of what's not to come....
the truth about this messy van. drive-thru manners. designing business cards.

See you tomorrow.

Not Me Monday

Wanna have some fun??? Then you should join in the blog carnival created by MckMama. Check out her blog to see what she and others have not been doing this week.

I am not totally super psyched for my upcoming craft weekend. Thursday. Friday. Saturday. Three days of non-stop crafting. In preparation for this weekend, I did not visit Wal-Mart and make another fabric purchase. You know, just in case I don't have enough fabric as it is. And of course, the lady cutting the fabric did not ask, "Are you making more purses?" Shortly thereafter, another associate approached the table and asked the same question. Yes, the ladies at Wal-Mart know that I make purses. Usually I spend money at Wal-Mart, but this trip did not have a money-making opportunity. One of the associates did not approach me, asking, "Do you make purses for people? If I bought fabric, would you make me a couple?" Ummmm... sure!

Today she did not call me and I do not have orders for two purses!

My fish tank at school had stared at me long enough. It was time for a good cleaning! So, on Sunday while I was at school working on plans for the week, I decided to bite the bullet and get it done. Things were going remarkable well, as I scrubbed the tank, changed the filter, and drained the water. Wait a minute... something doesn't sound right. As I looked toward the sink, I did not see the water draining not into the sink, but rather onto the FLOOR! Oops! Fortunately I caught in quickly and not too much water soaked the floor.

And finally, the story you all my sister has been waiting for... the truth about my toe. It was a dark and stormy night... Okay, not really. It's not at all that glamorous. I was getting ready to head to bed. Just needed to put my socks in the laundry basket. The socks still on my feet, that is. No problem. I'll just slip them off and kick them into the laundry basket as I've done hundreds of times before. Right sock off and in basket. Success. Left sock off and... OUCH!

I did not bring my foot into full contact with the door jamb in my attempt to kick my sock into the laundry basket. Please take my advice and do not try this at home, or any other place for that matter.

So, another Monday has come and gone. Join the fun next week!
