A quickie…

I’m leaving for my trip to Savannah in two days…and I’m not ready.  I have a ton of work to get done and I have a long list of errands to finish before I go…and there are not enough hours in the day.  Oh…I have to pack too. 

So this is just a quick drop in to say hi and to give you two little snippets of conversations that have happened around my house in the last week or so.  I have to run and go reconcile a bunch of credit card bills so I can leave early today.  See you tomorrow…


I’m sitting on the bed with the dogs and J is in the other room.  I’m looking for Zombieland on the OnDemand channel, but I can’t find it.  I finally find it after 10 minutes and start the movie.  “For Whom the Bell Tolls” by Metallica starts playing. 

J: Are you watching Zombieland?
Me: Yes
J: Why?
Me: It’s funny and it makes me laugh. 
J: I thought you were sleeping.
Me: Nope.
J: I called your name a bunch of times and you didn’t answer.
Me: What did you say?
J: I said “Shana”, you know, your name.
Me: Oh right…(breaks into hysterical laughter, as if this were the funniest thing ever…I was really tired and that’s what happens when I’m really tired).
J: What’s so funny?
Me: (still laughing)…of course you said my name.  I meant what did you want?
J: I wanted to know why you had the OnDemand channel on.
Me: I was looking for Zombieland.
J: Yes, I see that now.  I thought you’d fallen asleep.
Me: (laughing even harder…now there are tears) Of course you said my name….hahahahahahahaha (slaps knee)
J: You’re nuts.  You know that, right?


Our street is really narrow and if you park cars on both sides you block the street and cars can’t get down the block.  The other night I parked the car on the street in front of our house and went inside.  Someone in the house across the street pulled up across from me and was sitting in their car.  A few minutes later I heard a horn blaring, so I went out and saw that the guy got out of his car and left it there.  I went out and moved my car.  I was all annoyed.  The next day J parked the car in the same place and the same guy did the exact same thing.  As he started getting out of the car and locking the door J went over to him…

J: You can’t park your car there.
Guy: But they (meaning the owner of the house) said I could.
J: You can’t park two cars across from each other like this…it blocks the street.  You can only park there if there is no car on the other side.
Guy: But they said I could park here.
J: What part of this are you not understanding?  The street is too narrow…you can’t park cars on both sides…because then other cars cannot get by.
Guy: But they said…
J: Yeah, I get it…they said you could park here.   Let me say this again…slowly…you cannot park there if my car is parked here…it blocks the street…the street is too narrow.  You can only park there if no one is parked on this side.  You did this yesterday and my girlfriend had to come out and move the car.  She was pissed and you don’t want to be on her bad side. 
Guy: So where should I park?
J: I don’t care…just not here.


  1. OMFG, Shana… I’m seriously starting to think there is something VERY WRONG with your neighbors :p But LMAO @ the sheer ridiculousness of his response.

    Hope you have a great time in Savannah!!! Such a beautiful city so please do take lots of pictures. Of scenery and shenanigans :)

    PS: I’m dying to see Zombieland. Is it worth the hype??

    • The first time I watched Zombieland I thought it was dumb. Then I watched it a second time and I realized it was actually brilliant and hilarious. Watch it.

  2. ARGH! People are so stupid. J sounds like he was really patient with that guy.

    Zombieland is one of my favorite movies. LOVES it.

    I am fully jealous of Savannah. I wish I was hanging out with you guys. :(

  3. Zombieland + Metallica = awesome sauce!!!
    <3 Wichita for One Night w/out photographic evidence.

    Enjoy your trip to Savannah enjoy all it has to offer FOR ME!

    J did well with that guy he needed a slap in his head after repeat #2.


  4. All the time I wonder, WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE??? What a freaking idiot! That is too much for me. I would have totally lost it with him.
