Call me crazy...but would it not be most beneficial to you to have the information of the bank/credit card you are being charged to if you are calling a company regarding those charges?

An angel of truth and a dream of fiction,
A woman is a bundle of contradiction,
She's afraid of a wasp, will scream at a mouse,
But will tackle her boyfriend alone in the house.
Sour as vinegar, sweet as a rose,
She'll kiss you one minute, then turn up her nose,
She'll give you her change, enchant you in silk,
She'll be stronger than brandy, milder than milk;
At times she'll be vengeful, merry and sad,
She'll hate you like poison, and love you like mad.

Yet another morning where my mocha has gotten cold before I could drink it. Why do I bother?

Went to dinner with Tim last night. Had a tequila as he was driving. It was nice to be able to drink a little and not worry about it. Much needed relaxer. I can tell the full moon is approaching. It was nice to sit and talk to him and the steak dinner was great. I felt much better about my day.
UW has an experimental college - which is sort of like Discover U. There's a class that I want to take, and think I'll sign up for. Its on novel writing. I think its time I move on with that - I have more people encouraging me to write now, and it would be great to make it a career. Not that I'll get it that far, but its a nice thought. Even so, I can always improve my skill. And, it'll feel good. I have a book I want to write, but have never been sure of how to start and what not. This is a 5 week course, so hopefully it'll help. Its a bit expensive, around $100 with registration and all, but still not bad.
I hear through the grapevine that there's job openings at AT&T Wireless. I'm considering, but I know that Bryan worked there and didn't have the best experience. He's mentioned several times that he doesn't think I'll like it. However, the person who tipped off the openings seems to like it fine. Its in Bothell, which isn't much further than here, and there's the possibility of carpooling again. However, do I really want to jump from one call center to another again? Same shit different name, ya know?

Parking lot etiquette

If you are waiting for a space to park in, turn ON your blinker. Don't just sit there like the moronic idiot you've just proved yourself to be.

Personal belief: If you can not operate something as simple as the blinker, please get out of the car.

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a "professional." Scroll down for each answer. The questions are NOT that difficult.

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Incorrect Answer: Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator.

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door.

This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator.

OK, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is inhabited by crocodiles. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You swim across. All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting.

This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong. But many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this Conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four year old.

I have this incredible urge for the next time someone demands their money back with the words "I want my money back" to answer with "how's it feel to want?" *click*
