Just a few rambling thoughts and crafts from a mind that is full of both. I am talented in my mind but regularly run full throttle into the wall of procrastination. I have raised procrastination to an art form. A friend once told me I have a BS in BS and a minor in excuse making. If there is anyway to get out of doing my best, I will do my best to get out of it. Welcome to my saburban life. : ).. Lol.

Wine Clubs, Wine Mobs and Car Keys Oh My..

Haven't quite adjusted to my new 0400-1230 schedule
where I can blog as much as usual.
Work is getting easier though.
I'm not a total zombie at 4am right now,
although, I haven't exactly been the brightest bulb in the building either.

Went to the first Wine Club pickup at Fence Stile Vineyard
Saturday night with our Wine Mob.
Had a great time.
Got some great wine.
Went out to get in the car to leave.
Went to get my keys.
Guess where they were?

Our new car only has one set.
The key has a chip in it,
and a duplicate would cost $60.00.

My key?
Was securely in the ignition.
The doors?
Securely locked.

Had to catch a ride home.
Had to catch a ride with the not so thrilled other half 
the next morning.
Had to try several different things before
he was able to hook the button and
pull it up.

We will be getting a mock key
because apparently, I have a proclivity to lock
my car keys in the car.
I'm great at that.
Well versed.
: /..

The wine club was great.  : )..
Delicious food.
Delicious wine.
Great friends.
Got a sneak peak at
Fence Stile's new
building where they will have
a bigger tasting room
and party facilities.

It was a great night despite the key snafu.
: )..

Katy Perry - Dark Horse

Between Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams, I don't know who has better

hits.  I love them both, even if Pharrell has had people say he makes songs

that are too close to other hits out there.  This song is great and so is the video.

Define Ironic?

Deleting a post off Facebook asking that same question,
only to hear Alannis Morrisette's, "Ironic" playing
on the radio on the drive home?
Where is MY ****?
Or that the song was yet another link
in the chain of love from above?
: )..

Saturday, February 8, 2014


I thought that it was very appropriate that this was
the first song that played on the radio when
we test drove our new"er" car today.
Especially since this is what I just changed my
Facebook profile picture to last night..
 : )..
 And now..  For our "new" car..
It's a 2002 Ford Taurus..
Looks nice outside..
Looks nice inside..
Drives great..
Drives straight..
Lotsa pep..
Comfy to boot..
 A couple minor dings on this side,
nothing major or that noticible..
Love the slate gray color..
And the fact that it has cloth seats instead
of super cold leather for the winter time..
It's even got a little bling going on..
And best yet?
It came with a rebate.
There is six cents in the glove box.
Allllrighty then.
: )..
No more bus.

Last Late Night Shift.. And bus ride..

Although - I will be running late to work
because I won't be able to catch a bus until 3:20pm
and won't make it to my other stop
in time - it's my last late night
shift and I really don't care anymore.
Whoop - Whoop.

Urban Groove..

It's been a crazy week.
My car finally gave out after a 200 mile trip
to Columbia, MO and back.
Since we are down to one vehicle,
I got to see a part of the Kansas City metro area
that I had always thought about investigating.

It only costs $3 for a day pass to ride the KC Metro
bus system, so I've been hopping from bus to bus
for the past few days.  It's been an interesting, cold,
tiring lesson though.  The first morning included a few
important tips, such as, not forgetting to walk a
couple blocks to catch the right bus, and that
some of them have stops on both sides of the street.

After riding the bus for a few days, I've gotten
fairly efficient at navigating the different routes.
I've met some very interesting people,
gotten to hear what I could only guess was a verbal
version of a tramp stamp (lol), and seen the good that is
still happening in this town.  I've seen passengers
offer seats to others, make sure that late arrivals still make
it to the bus before it leaves, and people hand over their
day passes to others when they were finished with it.

Hopefully we will have a "newer" car here in the next
few days.  I scheduled vacation for Wednesday,
and I'm waiting to hear about Thursday, or possibly
changing my hours temporarily so that they are within the
bus route schedules, instead of having to wait until 7am to start back home.

Here are some pictures of what I've been experiencing..
I've either been waiting for the bus, riding the bus,
working, waiting at work for a lift,
or trying to catch up on sleep at home.
It's been an exhausting few days.
Thanks to my co-workers who gave me a rides
along the way - they kept me from being
stranded at work over night..
Thanks Annette, Patty and Amanda!  : )..

 Is that one of my buses?
Nope..  It's the 106..  : (..
Brrrr..  It's cold..  Am I in the right spot?
Nope!  Ack!  Lemme run up the street..
 Downtown in the dark..
Early in the morning..
Kind of intimidating at times..
 I did find the AMC dinner theater downtown..
I'd like to try it out sometime..
Dinner and a movie?
Count me in.  : )..

Got to go over this bridge several times on a bus
that tipped and moved with every nuance of the road below..
That was..  not so fun..
Did I mention that it snowed one day?
Yup.  Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..
Although - it was better than having to drive in it.
I got to enjoy my town during my adventure.
This has always been one of my favorite KC metro pictures.
Well, minus the beat up looking car in the middle.
Lol.  Anyway.  I'm sooo glad that it's my two days off.
Whew.  I can rest up for a couple more crazy days.
Yay.  Time for some wine.  : )..
