I would like to start today with shoveling out some MAJOR bloglove to Corey. He very kindly helped me put up the beautiful buttons that you see to your right. Actually he didn't help he. He completely did it for me. Corey, thank you so so so so (so) much! Some day when I am rich and famous I am going to start a website just so that I can pay you to design it for me (It may be awhile, though).
His blog is titled If My Life Were A Musical...It Would Be The Best Musical EVER!!! Go to it now! And follow it. I am following it so it is Kara Hoag approved. But come back after and finish reading my post.
I don't have a lot of time today so I am going to entertain you with a quick Shmupplebees story.
A few years ago I was working a day shift. I don't recall, but I'm going to assume that I was hungover, still drunk, or just didn't care.
I got a two-top whom I assume were dating. The guy looks at the drink menu and asks what time it was. Without thinking I shoot back, "Well...it's five o'clock somewhere."
He did not look amused.
Neither did his girlfriend.
I, however, cracked up a bit. Partly because I thought it was funny, and partly because I felt a bit awkward that they were staring at me like I just ate one of their shoes.
I took their order, and tried to remain normal for the rest of their meal so that we could move past our differences in humor.
Apparently they couldn't. Neither of them tipped me and they both stole the pens that I had put down with their receipts.
Sidenote: that's the worst feeling ever the first time that happens. Stiffing a server AND stealing their pen is like slapping them in the face. Don't do it. It's just not nice.
Anywho, thank you so much again Corey! If your life WERE a musical, I bet you'd bravely defeat the villain and whisk your true love away to live happily ever after all the while classily doing it in song.
So to end, I've created a facebook account for this blog. I would love to be your friend. All you have to do is click on the nifty buttons that have been placed there by awesome Corey (have I thanked you enough yet?).
And follow me on twitter.
