Just another WordPress.com weblog

My All-time Favorites!

Today is a super-slow day at work, being that as I mentioned before, my job will be ceasing on July 28th. With that being said, most of the calls in this call center is being re-routed to the Philippines and Florida.

So as I sit here surfing the web as usual, a great idea popped in my head!!! I’d like to post my all-time favorite websites to share with you in no particular order:

1. www.wordpress.com (haha I made sure I put this one first JUST IN CASE I make it on Freshly Pressed, lol).

2. www.cnn.com I know their journalism can be biased at times, and sometimes the articles they post can be quite un newsworthy, I basically like to look at the comments on the bottom of the page and get a good laugh. My co-workers usually ask what am I snickering about and I tell them, the news.

3. www.eztaxreturn.com I have been using them for the last three to four years since I came to the realization that I too, can do my own taxes instead of paying those ridiculously high fees to have someone do it for me, especially when they are using the very SAME website!!!

4. www.nydailynews.com Having been born and raised in NY(Long Island to be exact), I miss the crazy happenings in the Big Apple.  They also have the moste amusing, but rude comments as well.

I love these  three sites, probably the most!!! I need my daily bread, this is what gets me thru the good AND bad days!!! There’s nothing like being fed the Word when you’re hungry or thirsty, but not for food or drink. 

5. www.quotesl.com/bibleverses 

6. www.dailybiblepromise.com

7. www.bibleinfo.com

13. www.mediatakeout.com It’s been a while since I’ve been on this urban gossip website but it’s a great site.

14. www.playlist.com That is a great site for playlist like the one shown on this page, you can post to many social websites!!

15. www.wikipedia.org I love this encyclopedia website!!! This is where I get a lot of my resources from when posting facts.

16. www.lyrics.com I like this site because when I hear a song on the radio, I can catch the lyrics, duh!!!

17. www.mapquest.com Gets me where I need to go!!

18. www.alabama.gov This is a good site to go on that has all the online information you need for the state, including employment opportunities.

30 “Oh So Trues….”

  Hello, my friends, I’m back. Work is kinda slow and my co-worker sent me this e-mail that I think you’d find amusing as it sure put a smile on my face…enjoy!! By the way, I added the pics myself for good measure, lol!!

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the Person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

work-or-get-fired

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this – ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

20. Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

21. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

22. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying to finish a text.

23. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

24. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

25. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

26. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

27. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

28. There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

29. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still do not know what time it is.

30. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!
