I hate this neighborhood

By M Davies   /     Jan 30, 2005  /     I hate my neighbors, NEPA, The Pre-Dooce File  /     0 Comment

2 crimes happened within twenty four hours in under a mile from where I live Thursday night into Friday morning.

First one: Shots fired near school, no one hurt

Second one: well, I was going to put the link here, but it was taken offline. To sum it up, some asshat that lives 2 houses down was wanted in NJ for drug charges and megan's law violations. He was "on the run" and apparently hiding out in PA. There was a big commotion down the street Thursday night and I didn't know what was going on, well apparently they were taking this guy into custody. Lovely.

In addition to that, some asshat that also lives on my street was sentenced for breaking loose from the police, damaging property and shitting himself. My grandmother recently asked me why I keep my house locked up like fort knox. Well look at all the freaks that live in my neighborhood. If I could build a moat around my house and fill it with man eating alligators I would. I can't wait to get the fuck out of this neighborhood.

Holy matrimony!

2005 is the year that all of my friends simultaneously decided to get married…I swear. In a few weeks we are going to a wedding reception for Jeff Lloyd. After that, my friends Jesse & Missi are getting married in July. Then I am a bridesmaid in Adina's wedding in October. Meanwhile, in between all of those events, my brother graduates from High School this year and I also have a baby shower to go to. Then, on Tuesday my phone rang….Frog is now getting married in June. This is now the 4th wedding we are going to this year. I am just waiting to get another invitation. Insanity ensues, and its still only January. At any rate, congrats to everyone getting married, graduating or having babies.

What they don’t want you to know

Even if you aren't from Pennsylvania, you have to appreciate this: The Secret of Olyphant I really can't say much except, if you are bored definitely take the time to read it. As far back as I can remember, Olyphant was a crappy suburb of Scranton. This puts things in a little bit of a different perspective. It probably isn't true, but it is still pretty interesting to read if you have the time. Check it out.

I'm also working on writing something for the "About Me" section of my webpage. It still sucks, so I'm not ready to put it up yet. Bare with me.

Barney & Friends

By M Davies   /     Jan 14, 2005  /     Annoyances, The Pre-Dooce File, TV Rants  /     0 Comment

There is supposed to be a 20/20 on tonight that features Barbara Walters interviewing the President and First Lady. They also film the President and his 2 dogs. I think one is named Barney and I forget the other ones name, but that isn't the point. The point is that GMA and The View made a big point of showing these clips of the dogs being bad. The one dog peed on the rug in one of the rooms inside of the White House and the other dog won't come to the President when he is called. Now there's a prime example of shouldn't be leading the country. Someone who can't even get their dogs to listen and obey them. Asshat.

Meh

Awhile ago I thought it would be cool to get on as many mailings for reports and mailing lists for work as possible. I thought that getting as much work email as possible would make me seem more important. Man, do I feel like a jackass. Everyday I get about 100 or so UPS tracking numbers for equipment going out to customers. Each tracking number generates a separate email, so in addition to the 100+ spam email messages I get per day, I also get these 100+ UPS tracking numbers for people I don't give a damn about anymore because I'm no longer employed in tech support and am on maternity leave. I have tried to filter these tracking numbers on the email server level to no avail. I also tried creating several filters in Outlook to move these messages to the trash. No matter what I try I keep getting these damn UPS tracking number emails. Piece of fucking shit.
