Random things that are irritating me

Those patriotic license plates. You can't tell when the Colbert County people are coming. As a rule, when I see a 20 tag headed my way, I go somewhere else.

I got a new phone last week and Verizon gave me free VCast for a month. I didn't know what VCast IS, so when The Nice Kid found out that it was unlimited music downloads, we were happy. Until my e-bill showed up this month and instead of $105, my cell bill is $211. Turns out, it uses minutes to download songs. Pisser. I wish someone had told me that.

Twice I have attempted NaNoWriMo and twice I have failed. It is in NOVEMBER, for pete's sake. The holiday season starts in this house Oct 1 and ends March 17. November is the third busiest month of our year. I'm going to try again this year. At least try.

But then a funny from my mother: The Final Statement on Government:

Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are trusting the economy of our country and banking system to the same nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling whiskey.

Well, I'm with you on the NaNoWriMo attempt this year. It's also crazy during the 4th quarter at my house, so it should be interesting...

Don't diss the Colbert County folk. I married one, so thus, became a citizen.
