Epiphany.

I saw a graphic on a friend's Facebook today that made a light switch magically click on. It was a pair of eyes on a black background and it says...

"I know that every time a door closes a window opens, but man these hallways are a bitch!" 

That's exactly how I feel. 

ALL THE TIME.

What about you?

Memorial Day Weekend

We went to Disney this past weekend. Between HHH & I working all the time, we had to cram as much as we could into the 3 day weekend, and boy did we do that!!  
  1. Margarita Fest on Saturday
  2. Hotel in Kissimmee on Saturday night
  3. Magic Kingdom on Sunday
  4. Blizzard Beach on Monday
We got picked to be first family again and HHH & Junior got the first ride down Summit Plummet! The cabana they gave us was really nice. 

Oh and just a heads up hint for anyone going to Blizzard Beach:
If the park closes the Ski Lift ride, that means lightning has been spotted 20 miles or less from the park. Best not to chance a ride up to the tallest point of the waterpark!!

Now that we've been first family twice and declared Citizens of the Walt Disney World Resorts, I wanna know where I'm supposed to take the moving truck with all my stuff!

What did you do this weekend??

Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch!

Have you seen those ridiculous commercials for the dating site Farmers Only? Yeah, they say only farmers use their site so they can find like minded folks to go out with since farmers are so busy on the farm.



It's a good idea and all. I imagine farmers are extremely busy  and don't have time to hit the bar scene. The problem I have with their commercials is that they use an iconic american painting in one and it's just creepy. Why? Let me elaborate....

The above photo is from the commercial. The cartoon visage depicts the classic painting American Gothic. It was painted in 1930 by Grant Wood. Farmers Only uses their version to depict a man & woman who met on the dating site and got it on, so to speak. In reality, Wood used his sister and his dentist as models for his painting of  a farmer and his spinster daughter.

You hear that Farmers Only? FATHER AND DAUGHTER!!!

I don't expect everyone to know this. You'd have had to study American art at some point to figure it out. What I don't get is, why did FO not do its due diligence and research the painting before using it in the commercial? A father met his daughter on a dating site and they got together for a little some some? EW!

So now I can't figure what's worse, Farmers Only not being smart enough to do research or Farmers Only implying country folks get it on with their family and offspring?

I guess the tag line is right. This city girl just doesn't get it!

I love this girl so damn much!

New

First pay period has been accomplished. Looks like I fit in nicely. Keeping my mouth shut. Enjoying the incredible opportunity I have to play with puppies & kitties for money. 

I'll take it!
