You guys that aren't in my daily life are missing OUT!
I am having huge sinus issues, and it's ruining my life.
I will spare you the disgusting details.
There are a couple of negative things that have happened, so I am going to blog them first so that is doesn't end with a poopy downer.
Our Dish Network has decided to not work. All of the channels are skipping and freezing. You can't really watch anything.
It's heartbreaking. Like the Stars losing the series 3-2 heartbreaking.
The Dish tech came out, wiggled some wires, plugged and unplugged things, and basically said that if the landlord doesn't cut down all the trees, then it's always going to do this.
The Stars are out of the Playoff Race.
Castle was cancelled...
You can tell when the finale of Castle was filmed, that it was not intended to be a series finale, because it would have ended on a massive cliffhanger, both of them shot up, crawling to each other clinging for life. Then..fade out, and then suddenly "eleven years later", it shows them in the future with kids.
Just like that.
I wish they could have had a properly filmed series finale.
I love me some Javi and Ryan.
Oh and by the way....**spoilers**
Bailey's dog has went missing.
This severed my taste buds.
It tastes like Alka Seltzer.
I am big on texture.
I can't even describe what this feels and tastes like.
I'll take it the regular way, thanks.
My hair dying experience was horrific.

Where Sinus Medicine did not Have Me Like
Not so much bad, but funny....
Scott's baloney ;)
Read about it here:
My Baloney has a Second Name
This was billed as "the scariest movie of the year". Stephen King said it was one of the scariest movies that he had seen.
Storms and more storms.
I got stranded in Walmart.
Went in for lean beef and hamburger buns.
You want to know why all snakes are bad?
This: Chicken Fried Snake Takes Out Power to City
That's right. The entire City of Natchitoches.
It went out at the hotel for hours.
Guess what we did....
And last but not least...the neighbors got a new puppy.
I did manage to hijack some sweet pictures:
Things That Are Awesome
This. I was proud of this. All the years that I have worked in the hotel industry, I have helped them clean many a room. I did 2 just today.
However, ever since they switched to the duvets with the inserts, I just cannot do it.
It takes on average 20 minutes for me to get the insert in, then another 10 or so to make it look decent.
I did this one, and was proud. It still had some lumps, so I found the housekeeper I was helping and asked her to tweak it.
Barbara: Oh my Gosh, that's not that bad!
Me: It's funky at the top, I can't get the bubble out.
She looks inside the hole, gives me a LAAAAME look, then starts to unassemble it.
I may or may not have put the insert in sideways.
*goes back to my office*
This picture amazed me. I read it on a "something something that you can't believe it's not Photoshopped" link. If I had the link, I would give them credit.
This...is an actual photograph. Not a painting.
I made it my laptop background.
I knew this already, but Callie is kind of a jerk sometimes.
I never pet the cat, look at the cat, all I do is occasionally feed and sweep up hair behind the cat.
She was trying so hard for me to pet her, and the dog would not allow it.
On the 20th and 21st, it was a crazy train at work.
70 arrivals and they all showed up hours before check in time.
If you don't work at a hotel, do you want to know why this is bad?
The rooms aren't ready that early.
We have to wait for people to check out, strip the rooms, and 40 minutes later it will be ready. We do this 74 times.
Check in is at 3.
I was literally running both days to get them ready, get people checked out, help get the rooms ready, make schedules, fix a broken printer, over 3 hours of paperwork, and then....
This couple comes in while I am eating lunch.
All I can see is from the waist up.
I could smell them though. ZERO DEODORANT. Like immediately to my table. The stench.
They get on the elevator, and when they come back down I can see the guy is wearing a skirt.
Not a kilt. He was not a transgender. Just a non-deodorant wearing hippy that wanted cool balls. He also had on a thin tank top with knee socks and steel toe work boots.
I am talking brown, cotton, Pentecostal pencil skirt.
I didn't attempt a picture, because I think he was looking for a reaction.
As the lobby was being sprayed....
I wish I had her confidence.
She was very sweet and funny.
It just caught me off guard when I got off of the elevator.
On one of my off days, Rebecca, Lil, and I went to eat "Noo Noo" and went to "Nar Nart".
Translation, we went to Lucky Village so Lily could have Lo Mein (Noo Noo) and then went to the Walmart.
And then I just ruined her day.
My car needed a bath, so we went to the drive-thru car wash.
She normally likes it...
Right as it began, I said "Get ready, here it comes!!"
And I got this look:
And the following pictures are just how it progressed:
I knew it still had at least 3 or 4 minutes left, I was trying to be comforting...
Then I get this look....
She....had had enough of my shit, lol.
I said "I paid $10, Lil!"
We finally got outta there.
Okay no joke. When I found out there was going to be another book, a tear may or may not have crept up to my eye.
These books have been a huge part of my life.
I didn't think there was ever going to be another one.
I may or may not have written this guy a fan email about 10 years ago.
Not like a stalky one where I sprayed my perfume on it, but he posted a link on Twitter to his email address saying he'd like to "hear from the fans".
My letter was just kinda long.
So that is pretty much my month of May.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
