It's FRIDAY!!!

Ok, so actually - it's "Friday".
It's Wednesday in the "real" world. But in my world, it's Friday!
What that means is that I have the next 2 days off. And that it's beer and pizza night.
Yea, "Friday"!

And speaking of quotation marks, (what? Did too...) what is with that, anyway? Have you ever noticed that people use way too many quotation marks and obviously don't have a clue what they are for?
Like this one:

It's nice of him to stick around for 20 years, not really being their dad and all.

Or this one:

It's okay, it doesn't really "bite". Or doesn't "really" bite...

So, are superfluous quotation marks the worst or are random apostrophes even worse than that?
I mean, what the heck?

That make's absolutely "no sense" whatsoever. Bwahahahaha!

And speaking of no sense...
I got a 911 call the other day. Some lady (I use that term loosely) who wanted to file a fraud complaint because a local bar charged her nearly $9 for a margarita and didn't put any tequila in it. Except that she was clearly drunk. She also complained that other bars were putting cocaine in her drinks.
I'm thinking she needs to quit drinking.

Speaking of 911...it's not always crap and crazies, just so you know. I had a guy call one day to report a stolen car. He was at the courthouse. I asked which street he was on - he proceeded to start singing "On Broadway" for me. Made my day!

Speaking of musicals...I now hate my coffee stand gals. Okay, not really. But they were going on and on about "Glee" the other day so I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a try. I need something to replace "Ugly Betty" anyway...
So, thanks a lot. I'm completely hooked now! I love the music, the characters are a hoot. I so want to be on that show.
Whaddaya think?


  1. I posted a bad grammar sign on my blog only yesterday. My favorite is the famou's.

  2. You and me both...apostrophes and Glee!

  3. ha. enjoy the time off...the guy sining to you is hillarious!

  4. As a heterosexual male, I can find very few ways of insulting Glee without the risk of offending others.

    Google "Cop Rock."

  5. I love the wacky 911 calls. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are both 911 dispatchers, and the stories they tell!

  6. I watched my first full episode of Glee last night and I LOVE it.

  7. Wow, awesome post! On birthday cards my grandpa always signs, "Love" "Grandpa"...Is that a bad sign?

  8. I guess that the apostrophe might be okay if the name of the restaurant is Famou? Is that a stretch? lol

  9. What? You don't know Famou? He's "famous."

    While you're at it, can you get people to stop writing "loose" for "lose"?

    Ah geez, I know what you mean about Glee. I got hooked over the summer watching it over da internet.

    Oh, hey, in answer to your question... It's all pencil sketches which are scanned in and then colored in Illustrator. Sometimes I add patterns from different papers and such in PhotoShop. Like the cupcake foils are from my husband's old ties. Thanks for asking!


Grab a cup of coffee and sit down.
Stay a while.
