A sign of the impending apocalypse

I was listening to the radio the other day and a song came on. This is actually not that surprising. Radios = music (well, in my world. Not in the world of those people who like the news or talk radio*

(*Not that there’s anything wrong with that (unless you listen to Russ Limbaugh. I can’t stand him (Or Howard Stern for that matter (Is he even still on the air?)). Beth’s mom has MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) on the radio in her bathroom. The first time I walked in there and switched on the light, there was this deep voice and my response was “God?” And yes, I did figure out it was the radio.

Now if I have to go to the bathroom when I’m there, I’ll say that I’m going to go talk to God. Or respond to conversation with “God was just telling me about that upstairs.” It’s fun.).

Anyway, back to the sign of the impending apocalypse. This song came on the radio and I was seriously enjoying it. For a moment, I thought Lyndyrd Skynyrd had released a new version of Sweet Home Alabama and I was thrilled (I love Lyndyrd Skynyrd. What’s not to love? Southern Rock, um, (rocks for lack of a better word)).

And then I looked at the display on the radio. It read Kid Rock. All Summer Long. Not Lyndyrd Skynyrd. Not Sweet Home Alabama. Oh my God, no!

DM: How can I possibly like a Kid Rock song? This is wrong! WRONG!
Keem: It’s pretty good though.
DM: But Kid Rock!

There are those of you that will remember how Beth and I are absolutely convinced that “Picture” is the worst song ever and those who sing it at karaoke should be shot (Actually, I’m not sure Beth ever mentioned shooting people. That might just be me). So the fact that I like a Kid Rock song makes me feel that I am betraying my own karaoke rules. And I’m not sure how I feel about that.

Why I should not be allowed to own scissors

Yes. I cut my hair again. But in my defense, I was provoked beyond reason. My hair was being irritating and aggravating. The worst part of this is that Keem sent me an email today that I didn’t figure out right away. And when I did figure it out, I was already half way through cutting off the pony tail (Former Boss Matt told me that’s how his brother used to cut his hair. Back when he had hair). And I’m buying a laptop (Yayayayayayay! My sister is awesome!) and thought this would be a good way to save some money (my budget has now gone from Tight to “Oh my God, I can’t spend any money for the next six months.”).

When I went over to see Keem and ask her if I was correct about her indicating that we could go and get our hair cut, she said yes. And then I silently turned around and showed her the back of my head. And then all of my co-workers silently (and not so silently) dissolved into laughter.

Martha: Dana? Did you cut your hair again?
DM: Um, yeah.
Jessica and Christy: You need to stop doing that!
Carla: What did you do?
DM: I kinda cut my hair.
Carla: How do you kinda cut your hair? Is that the same as being kinda pregnant?
Andrea: BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
Keem: Turn around.
Carla and Andrea: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I will post the before and after pictures for you. Keem said she would take the pictures tonight.

And here is the email. My explanation regarding my suggestions are included. I have bolded the text so it makes sense.

Go to Senor Wong’s? (Best Chinese/Mexican food in the world and right in our building)
Go to the Library? (I’ve been trying to get her to take me here for years. No luck)
Go to the hardware store? (I have started making memo boards for people at work. I want to be able to add a magnetic section to it so I want metal (I also need tin snips because I have been trying to cut up mint tins. Regular scissors don’t work very well). Jo-Ann’s doesn’t sell metal that I could use as a magnet board)

Have yummy, yummy potatoes and garlic bread? (I’m thinking this is pretty self-explanatory. But, if you were not aware, Keem is the best cook in the world. And we went to the Farmer’s Market on Sunday where I bought Roasted Garlic baguettes)

No.
NO!
NO to the Nth degree.
Emphatically no.
Probably not.

Try again…

Work late? (I’m running out of PTO and have Friday off (doctor’s appointment). I have to make up time)
Sit across the street and take pictures? (Discussed this morning on our way to work. There is a park that overlooks the Mississippi River)

Get our new badges? (Pogo reference)

I am so sorry that you took your hair into your own hands. I can’t believe you didn’t get that that was what I was trying to say to you. 🙂 (This is obviously after I showed her my hair.)

You can’t be cryptic with me! My brain doesn’t respond to cryptic! (It really doesn’t. I can sometimes pick up on it but it requires a lot of effort. And I prefer to use that effort for solving murder mysteries (not real ones, ones in books and on television))

No biggie. Will you take a picture of my hair before we go so I can blog about this?

Yeah. I think that you also need to do the emails too.
