So Texas is going to get to pick a new license plate design or stick with the current. They will also add an extra digit. Here are the choices, the last one being the current one:

"Lone Star Texas" is currently in the lead by a wide margin but I picked "New Texas".

The only one I don't like is "Natural Texas". Any of the others are good, but I can see why "Lone Star Texas" would be in the lead, think that is the one I would pick.

I like "New Texas" because Austin is represented. The buildings on the far right are in Austin. They seem to have dissed Houston though. :giggle:

Lone Star Texas would have been my second choice.

You can still get it, but you have to ask for it. They replaced it with that godawful Baconator on the value menu, but if you ask for the Big Bacon Classic combo they'll hook you up. At least the Wendy's on 88 in Point Pleasant does.

No matter what you get at a fast food place you have to ask for it :P. Just thought it was a funny quick spin on words.

i went today, got some chicken nuggets, good stuff.

Off point but what is that guy who got the patriots helmet tatooed on his head going to do, i mean he was banking on them winning this year.

I was going to say "That was quick", but I guess this is the perfect time to make a killing on those.

So the dog is posting regularly I see.

Did your owner hit a milestone in her post count or something? :P

As for the plate, it didn't get my vote but it's better than the current nonsense.

I think I'm going to quit my job -- without having another one lined up. My parents are not pleased and we got into a little fight about it where I yelled, "It's my life and I don't need your permission." I understand it's a bit (okay a lot of) a risk considering I will not have health insurance or any money for that matter -- but my job is making me really unhappy. I don't expect co-workers or people to kiss my ass day in and day out telling me I'm doing a great job, but the job is making me feel stupid. I feel stupid. I feel like I never do a good job on anything. That's the way people are making me feel. I don't enjoy it. I don't feel fulfilled. (and perhaps I'm being too idealistic)Maybe I'm just not good at PR -- maybe I just don't like doing PR in the "real world". I look at my managers and I don't even want their job. Maybe I'll like it elsewhere in another practice that's not healthcare. If it's not public relations then I don't know what I'm going to do.. I wish I was one of those people that has a calling or knew exactly what they want to do. I wish I had a talent.. or something. *sigh*

/vent.

sorry for rambling as usual.

Probably not the greatest idea quitting. Have you talked to your managers about your work? Are they the ones making you feel like you aren't doing a good job? Have you sat down with them to see what is expected of you or anything? You must be doing something right if they're keeping you around, right? If you really want to leave then can't you stick it out until you find something else?

yeah this is true

quitting just because you're having trouble hackng it will not serve you well down the road

(sorry if that was harsh, but that's how it is going to look on paper to future employers)

maybe you just need a productive hobby to make putting up with the job bullsh!t worth all the grief?

So I just got back from Wal-Mart. The dude in front of me had 19 six-packs of Coke (four of them diet). He tells the lady, he has four diet and 12 regular. She counts and he has 15 regular, scam denied. Then I guess he asked for help to take them to his car. WTF, they were in a cart! So the lady tells me she'd be right back, I guess she went to find someone to do this for him. Instead of waiting I went to the other cashier who had just finished up with someone else. So I leave the store same time he does and he happens to be parked next to me. Dude had a Mercedes ML320! He certainly didn't look like the stereotypical Benz owner but WTF, was he able to afford the Benz from past (successful) soda scams!? :evil:

There you go stereotyping again.

Just because his teeth weren't capped doesn't mean he can't own one.

He looked like he was older than he was. Face and hands worn and weathered as if he did outdoor manual labor all his life. Had on an old leather jacket and dirty jeans.

Oh btw, he did buy flowers too so I guess he had someone waiting for him at home...she probably got the four six-packs of Diet Coke too. :giggle:

February sucks.

To start this wonderful month, I get hit by a car. Me, physically. Hit and run, actually.

I hurt my hip.

Not even, what, two weeks later, I'm driving home in the snow storm and a clip a telephone pole after a car cuts me off.

I lose my side mirror.

Same drive, I'm on 80, my car makes the executive decision that actually running is not something it's going to do.

Everything locks up, I slam into a guard rail.

I'm rushed to the hospital. Bad concussion, cut up face, strained neck and back.

At least I'm alive. Car is totaled.

I wake up today really dizzy, cannot see straight. I decide to just stay in bed. Screw school.

I get a phone call saying there has been fraudulent activity on my debit card.

There's only $77 left in my account.

Closed the account, now have to wait 5-7 days for a new card and everything.

Life is stupid right now.
