Get To De CHOPPAH!!!

I have a confession to make.

It isn't about me, so I don't feel that bad revealing this, but maybe I should.

Today, someone dear to me, someone educated, fairly movie savvy and politically minded, let slip a misunderstanding that had apprently never come up before.

He, or she, since they were a kid, and until a few hours ago, had fully assumed that Arnold Schwarzenegger was Australian.

Rolling in laughter ensued. Tears, shortness of breath, images of the Governator wrestling crocs and boxing kangaroos. The word "G'Day" as spoken with an Austrian accent...

This was possibly the highlight of my week, hell, month!




Apart from that, not a lot to report. My arm is slowly getting some flexibility back, and with it an intense amount of pain as ill-used muscles start to get used again (OIL CAN!) and tonight is my last night of working the graveyard shift at the Pocatello Walgreens.

After that, it's Maine time, baby!

Hey, good news about Walgreens, are they hiring?

I think part of this story is a joke from the start of the movie "Dumb and Dumber." Actually, though, there are a lot of slips ups if you actually listen to what people are saying...especially when they go reaching beyond their comfort zone, such as in a job interview or when they are making a presentation. Good luck with your move to Maine. That's near Austria, California or Australia...I can't remember which.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Thanks Sally! It made me laugh too. Cracked me up.

Good point, Steve and thanks! We're already planning to stop by you when we come out and get the dogs!

Anonymous - That's very insightful, though horribly off topic. I would delete it, but then I'd have one less comment and the engrish is pretty good.
