A funny automated message

I heard today while at work was something like this:

For those needing language interpretation, your call may be transferred
to an English speaking representative first before connecting you with a representative who speaks your language.

Now, I ask you… how will the person who needs language assistance understand this message?

Another way to save

Today, I figured out another way to save money with these high gasoline prices. I’ve decided that if prices get much higher on gasoline, I’ll just park my car on the side of the road & call Triple AAA to tow me where I need to go. I pay for a membership, right? Why not use it!

Can you see it? The mental image I have is hilarious… me & Mom sitting on the side of the road… calling Triple AAA to be towed, then asking the tow truck driver to drop me off at work on his way to take Mom to work.. and to be sure to be back at 5:00 to tow us back home! LOL

100 words

Beginning September 1, 2005 I’ll be posting 100 words each day on the 100 words site (see link on the right of this blog). Exactly 100 words, no more, no less. Only one day in the month can posting be missed. Missing more than one day causes the writer to not be included in the batch. Each calendar month and the 100 daily words of the participants is called a batch.

In the guidelines, it’s suggested that the participants not read their own entries until the end of the month. Participants are not able to see other participants’ entries until that time also.

I’m kind of excited about it. I think it will be challenging.

Keys to my heart??

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when your partner is patient and never willing to give up on you.
You’d like to your lover to think you are optimistic and happy.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything… no secrets.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You’ll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you thirst for. You’ll do anything for love, but you won’t fall for it easily.

Surprisingly, this isn’t far off. I wonder if it’s like that for everyone. Funny that choosing animals from a selection of four would generate results like this.

Could you pass the US citizenship test?

You Passed the US Citizenship Test

Congratulations – you got 10 out of 10 correct!

Lucky for me, I took a US government class a few years ago, huh? 🙂

What language should I learn?

You Should Learn Chinese

Surprised? You shouldn’t be – Chinese is perfect for an ambitious person like you.
You’re a natural entrepreneur, and a billion people are waiting to do business with you!

Saw this on farnorthblog & thought I’d give it a go. I’m thankful the results didn’t say I should learn the Basque language.. it sounds REALLY hard since it’s a language isolate.

My favorite video clip

The Dancing Trombone Player from the Steve Harvey Show.

I laugh aloud each time I see this. Hysterical! 🙂
