Someone let the crazies out.

I'll say it again, I seriously need a new job...

Crazy: "Hey, you!"

Me: "Yeah?"... See More

Crazy: "You're a cute and sweet girl..."

Me: "Umm... ok?"

Crazy: "I wanted to letcha know that I'm going to make a statement for you and your generation.

Me: "And what's that?"

Crazy: "I'm going to jail."

Me: "Uhhh, OK... I'm sorry?"

Crazy: "I'm goin' to rob a bank so this joke of a government will take me to jail. I've already called them and told them I'm goin' to rob a bank and shoot me some idiot cops. They told me they won't take me to jail until I do try it, though. I sent them my picture. They said they'll send it to the banks to let them know to watch out for me."

Me: "Uhhh... Okaaaaay..."

Crazy: "I'm doin this for you and your freedom."

Me: "How exactly do you robbing a bank have anything to do with my freedom? That's ridiculous."

Crazy: "Cause I'm making a statement to the government that they're a joke. They already told me that I can't smoke in a bar. See, they took your freedom, too, by not allowin' us to smoke."

Me: "Actually, they're making sure that I live longer and stay healthier by taking out the smoking in a bar. I don't have to sit here and smell other people's smoking while I work. I'm glad they did that."

Crazy: "That's what they say because that's what they want you to believe. See... They've already brainwashed ya. I have to do this."

Me: "Umm... No, that's how I feel and that's what I believe. I'm a free thinker and I enjoy not breathing in smoke."

Crazy: "Well... They steal from ya by taxin' you on everything."

Me: "That's just a part of life. Something we've got to deal with."

Crazy: "Well, I'm done. I'm going to be put in jail so I can show them that I'm done with them trying to support me with social security and then steal from me. They won't be gettin' anything from me and I don't need them. That's why I must prove this by going to jail."

Me: "Actually, if you're in jail, they'll be supporting you and you'll have to do exactly what they tell you to. How does this prove yours or my freedom, exactly?

Crazy: raises voice, "I won't be doing nothin' they say. They can lock me up in confinement, because I won't do nothin'."

Me: "Well, I think that's just ridiculous. If you go to jail, you're giving up your freedom."

Crazy: "I'm giving up my freedom for you. You won't think it's ridiculous some day. You're too young to get it. When you're older, you'll get it, and you'll be grateful."

Me: "Riiiiight..."

Crazy: "Well, when you see my name in the paper for robbin', you'll know that I did this for your freedom."

Me: "...and that makes absolutely no sense."

Crazy: "Cause you're too young for it to make any sense. That's why I came in tonight, to see if I should do it here in the next few days, but I respect you and the owner (he talked to Danny, the owner, too) and I'll find somewhere else."

Me: speachless

Crazy: parting remarks, "Just remember it was for you and your generation. You'll wish you could thank me some day."

Me: "Riiiight. See you later." relief

Crazy: laugh "Only in the paper, and you'll remember me."

Sad news...

Hannah, my best friend for the past 23 years, has been through so much. It amazes me how strong that woman is. She lost her mother, who was an amazing woman, just a few years ago. She still has a hard time with it. She recently divorced and his now raising two young kids on her own. Now, her older brother just found out that he has a brain tumor. He's only 32/33. He's too young for this. Hannah has three older brothers, and of them all, this one, Jason, was always my favorite. He was always so nice to me growing up. He has so much going for him. He has traveled the world, spent time in the army, modeled in LA, and so many more things. Hannah and I, several years ago with 3 young kids, even drove all the way across the country, from NC to Cali, just to visit him and his amazing new home.

Now, he's sick and isn't getting any better. They want to perform surgery on him, but he has no insurance and is short $10,000. Hannah and her brothers are trying to save money, collect money, accept donations, so that Jason can go through with this surgery and be able to go back home to NC and spend time with his family while he goes through this horror.

Keep them in your prayers and thoughts,even if you don't know them. That family has been through so much in such a short time and this just tops it. They are all struggling through these trials.

I'm so bad...

It has been FOREVER since I have posted on here. I know, I am so slack. I'm going to try to be better. I also have a blog for my books that I read. If anyone is interested, it is

Anyway, family life is great. I'm still working at the bar, but hope to eventually get out of there, still. Someday... The kids are growing up fast - too fast. Lee has an awesome job in Portland that he loves. Anyway, I gotta go and mess with my book blog and figure out how to work it out.

Good day to everyone, if anyone is still around. =)
