Desti-knee or ankle

We left early-EARLY-on Saturday morning with 15-17 YSA campers, looking for a great need to relax, escape from life/work/the world and we all found a beautiful paradise of emerald colored water with white sand beaches, gorgeous/nearly perfect weather and a weekend of more than we could ask for!

My play on of words will lead into our trip to Destin, Florida. It was a great trip and really couldn't have gotten better. The "knee" part is an actual spelling of a the name Destiny; but leads into my sore foot. I really can't explain more, just thought it was a funny title.

I had a great time. The weather was beautiful, there were no bugs, I got a little sun; it was a great time. A great part of the trip ended with a sweet moment after a long walk with a dear friend.

Double the pleasure

Am I allowed to have double themed posts? K, great!

I guess this isn't really much of a theme as a declaration. Maybe that's the wrong word for it. Maybe Ouizer can help me out with my word choice. Anyway, I'm trying to either quote a movie or song in every post. I didn't do it one post so far, but it'll come fo' sho'!

Ok, so I'm riding home from work today and I can't believe how stupid people are. I know, road rage, blah blah blah. But seriously. My point is, when your entering an interstate-YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY! How can people not understand that. It's just assumed that I'm going to move my car over into on coming traffic so you can get on the interstate, uh-uh, RooD! So next time you're thinking, you want it that away, think again. This explosion ain't stopping. Now don't make me cuss!

Wally-world vs. the Target

You must really say Target as the French would. If you do not, please stop now and vow never to return again!

I went to Wal-mart today for the first time in a while. I'm sure I've been sometime in the past few months, but not nearly as much as I use to. It's a dirty place and the employees really aren't as great there as the beautiful read bulls-eye.

In Sam's defense, it's got some great prices and a variety of things that can't be found at target. They are a little more abundant in every day needs. Today, for instance, I found an AC adapter...couldn't find one at the competitor across the interstate. He's tried to make a great store and it really does appeal to low cost shoppers.

"On the other hand", Target is a great store. There are things there you can't find anywhere! And I've come to realize if I can't find them at Target, I'll just have to go somewhere else that specializes in that specific item to swipe my doggie faced card. Not that Wal-mart is that bad, Target is just that good.

Being in management, I've noticed that certain types of people are drawn to certain types of environments. Simply put, you won't find Target employees applying at Wal-mart.

To wrap this up, I'm glad there is a Target close to my house. Thank you Wal-mart for all you've done for me in the past. This isn't goodbye, just a simple see ya' later!

My reasoning

There are many things I could talk about on a daily basis, but usually they could be considered negative. I'll try my hardest to not overtake this blog with them but there will be occasional venting sessions and even worse...a sympathy plea or two. Please bare with me, I'm new and still want to be liked but more importantly, I want to be heard!

So, now that is out of the way, a friend of mine JP gave me some tips on blogging. Not so much tips as how I can blog but it was more of me eaves dropping on her blog and realizing some key points to make in my own. First off, use alternate names for the people in my life. This way, if someone comes here and finds someone's name-well let's just put it in one word I know well but don't always adhere to, confidentiality.

Today is the first day I'll post my blog address on a certain website that is for checking out faces through a sort of series of pages about people. I'm anxious to see what happens. I wanted to make sure I had a few entries before people read this. I didn't want to appear an amateur, which I'm sure I really can't avoid.

This one is long, I'm impressed. I'm still not sure about pictures yet..I'll have to venture out one step at a time. Thnx, Anne, for your inspiration!
