Mike and I are on vacation, we leave for warm weather and beaches tomorrow morning so by this time tomorrow hopefully I will be at my hotel and wearing a t-shirt. Score! But we have been in vacation mode the past 2 days which is awesome but I know some marrieds with children might think we have a fast paced life or something, with our travel and our nights out and stuff. I think we just have a more relaxed life then people with kids and responsibilities. These are the highlights of our super cool day: I got a pedicure and bought Mike packets of Metamucil to take on our trip. I watched Kill Bill Vols 1 and 2 but missed most of vol 2 because I took an hour and a half nap during most of it. During my nap Mike played Madden on his play station and is still playing right now and I think he has been playing for a total of 3 hours. Nice.
See a blog can't always be funny but I felt bad because I haven't written in 11 days! Dude! Mike got a limo to take us and our friends to the airport tomorrow which kinds rocks. I have to say as far as boyfriends go he is pretty top dog. My last boyfriend (I refer to him as a poop head) and I once went on vacation, to the cape, for 2 days. yea.....
One another rockin note, I just foud 3 Bud Light bottles that I forgot about in the fridge! Woo hoo!

Family Guy was just on and it was the episode where Peter visits Pawtucket Pete at the Pawtucket Brewery, its a take on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. There are Chumba-wumbas instead of Oompa-Loompas (PS I was an Oopma-Loompa for Halloween a few years ago, I rocked it). As I was listening to the Family Guy episode I was thinking about Willy Wonka and that movie did teach us many lessons, well the old movie with Gene Wilder not the creepy new one with Johnny "Hey Rebecca let's make a baby" Depp. Here are my thoughts or the lessons that I saw in the Willy Wonka original movie:
- Be nice to your grandparents
- Even orange midgets with green hair can get a job
- Don't overindulge in sweets or you might get sucked into a chocolate river
- Don't pick your nose, its gross
- When people tell you not to eat something, don't eat it!
- Watching too much TV is bad for you
- Burping however, is good for you
- Being a spoiled brat will make people not like you, and perhaps get you stuck in a trash chute with your overweight father
- Honesty is the best policy
- If you wear a top hat all the time you will be single

So this morning Mike dropped me off at the train, I'm trying to reduce my carbon footprint; I got there at 6:38am and the lights were blinking indicating that the train was 3 minutes away. Score!
I run to the other side to wait for the train...and wait...and wait...ummm, train less then 3 minutes does not equal 15 minutes. So I look at the scrolling message center and 2 minutes ago it had said trains were running "on or near schedule", but now it read "Unknown delay time, mechanical difficulties." In train speak that means if you are waiting for the train and if you had somewhere to be on time, HA! It also means that no other train can get by the disabled train so really no hope. There was supposed to be a 7:05am train, it is stuck behind my train, so we wait...it's kinda cold but I have a book so I am occupied. So then a train comes, at 7:20am, I get on and snag a seat that was being occupied by someone's suitcase, ummm...no! Train lurches forward and lights go off. Nice.
We sit at Norwood Center for another 25 minutes, I call work and say I am trapped on the train and will be late. I see someone running through the parking lot towards the train, yea...no need.
The other "guests" on the train begin to rumble, I do say out loud "This is ridiculous", the guy across from me said he just saw an engineer walk by with a part. A part! What part? Did a wheel fall off?!
Another train (the would be 7:05am) gets behind us and has to push us to Boston, that train makes all the stops whereas the 6:43am (my original train) only makes 2 other stops before Ruggles. We travel to Boston being pushed, the little commuter rail that couldn't at about a speed of negative 3 miles an hour (obviously being sarcastic here) and I get to work an hour late.

Okay I think I might be a little dumb because I was watching TV and there was a commercial for California's happy cows, like the ones where they have cows auditioning to be California's next happy cow. So this cow was from Tokyo, and this is what went through my head: "They have cows in Japan?"

I feel like I need to find the company that Burger King is using for their PR or actually who is doing their advertising. An angry Whopper? Really? I enjoy food, hamburgers and cheeseburgers included in that but I don't enjoy angry anything. Angry salads, angry streak, angry chicken, don't want to eat anything angry. I mean I assume the animals I consume weren't exactly thrilled when they were killed but I can deal with eating a sad hamburger or maybe a terrified one but I prefer my food to be complacent not pissed off.
