270 - What a FUN DAY!

Earlier this afternoon, my officemate tells me his wife just texted him and says there's a bomb threat at Ellington and they have some schools on lockdown. Weird. But I guess I get it, Ellington is an air base, they scramble jets every once in a while. But... turns out she somehow got that confused with... a burglary. Five area schools were locked down because two suspects had escaped on foot from a bank robbery, and one of them had a gun. Reminds me of the day that I drove to work and saw a cop with his gun pointed at someone standing in front of a bank. What sucked about that scenario from my standpoint is that his gun was pointed toward traffic... i.e. me. For a second anyway.

Not sure how bomb threat at Ellington translated to lockdown due to burglary... but... hey, we all make mistakes. =)

Then I happen to see on tv that the Greeks are pretty pissed about something having to do with banking, so, being a civilized country... they're rioting. Those crazy Greeks... Again, another weird coorelation... they riot, and our stock market plummets 900 points? I so DO NOT want to look at my 401k right now... Maybe it's worth it to pay the penalties and just stuff it in my mattress. At least that way if money isn't worth anything anymore, I will have a comfortable mattress upon which to sleep.

Glad I decided on Alaska and not Greece for my next vacation.

So today is silly song day. I've downloaded Lady Gaga's Telephone, Christina Aguilera's Not Myself Tonight, and the remixed Glee version of Olivia Newton John's Physical (possibly the best video EVER made, eh girls?). Will I regret this tomorrow? Nah. I've been brainwashed to believe it's alright. Seriously, what's wrong with enjoying a song just because it has a good beat? Isn't that basically what Sarah said???

Hey... doesn't that sound like a cool little featurette? What Sarah Said. Yes -- I like it!

Alright, I'm getting off this crazy thing before I scare more people away. I'm minus a follower... you win some, you lose some.


  1. But... the important ones are still here! Sorry, I couldn't resist.

  2. Actually, Miss Kristy, your 401k has probably been in a pretty good upturn for the past year...I know mine has. But when it all tanked 2 years ago, I was with you...better to take it out and pay the penalty.
    Those wacky Greeks, eh?

  3. Ms. A - So true...

    Joe - Well... for the last couple of year yeah... but down 900 points??? That sounds like a bad recipe.

  4. I saw the DowJones today and almost fell out of my chair. All I can say is that it will swing in the other direction. I have to be patient... but damn when my hubs sees the numbers he's gonna freak out.

  5. I looked at your list and it wasn't me---I'm glad of that :)

  6. Haha, Alaska is no better. With all the volcanoes going off, I keep expecting to hear about one giant one up there.

    Although I was born there, so I do feel a certain soft place in my heart towards it.

  7. Does anybody get away with robbing banks anymore? It's like a high speed chase.... Why run?
