I'm late! I'm late!

                                              On the day I get the Top 5 Editors Picks, I get a late start.  That's like coming to college on your first day and showing up late or something....and having everybody stare at you as you try to find a seat.  Anyway...LOL...I got up SUPER LATE.  (I'm sorry, Jesse, but I got up at 11, and if the phone hadn't have rang, I'd probably still be asleep!  LOL)  

After all the talk about the possum carcass the other day, and me being glad to see the trash guys...they didn't take it.  Can you believe that?!  They just glanced in the garbage can and assumed only 2 full bags fit in there, so they grabbed the handles for those two bags and took off.  I was like 'wait!  TAKE THAT POSSUM!!!'  ::Amy runs down the street chasing the garbage truck holding a possum tail::  

AND THEN...more in the 'why does this stuff happen to me' category......  

Adrian had been out in the morning with his 'motorcycle'.  About 20 minutes into his fun...he came back saying it didn't work, so Ryan assumed the battery went dead and told me I should charge it.  I said 'ok, I'll wait for Dad because I don't know where the charger unit is...'  That was that.  Flash forward to me going out to the street to get the mail.  I glance in the street and think 'Hmm...wonder what that is...'  Upon closer was the battery to Adrian's motorcycle.  It had fallen out.  Better yet?  The GARBAGE TRUCK ran it over.  Splinters.  Smithereens.  Squashed.  Flattened.  Me and Adrian stood over it staring like we had never seena battery before.  ::sigh::  He says 'I don't know for sure, Mom...but I don't think it's going to work anymore.'  ROFLMAO......(he must get his deductive reasoning from Jesse)  SO...we'll have to go buy a new battery, methinks....   

I have a wicked craving for avocado, so I think we'll have nachos for dinner tonight so I can make up a batch of guacamole.  Avocados were on sale so I bought 6.  Gotta hurry up 'n use 'em....(of course, I could just eat them straight with salt...or on a tukey and mayo sandwich...or on a....did I happen to mention avocados are one of my most favorite foods?)

    I am so sorry that I did not congradulate you sooner. I just read that you were in the top 5 Editor's Pick. CONGRADS!! You totally deserve it and I love your journal. I have been just awful about keeping up with my AOL journal and other computer stuff the last couple of weeks. Oh well, I guess I can blame it on the holidays right?
