Street Money Update!

May 24, 2009 at 12:54 pm (Street Money) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Penny by penny by penny…I guess it gives me something to type about every day.

Found another hot penny behind the car, in the Hinsdale Oasis parking lot, going to get a coffee, while trying to take a picture of that Camaro from the previous post. See, how it all comes together??

Anyway, another penny richer. Go HERE for the total.

HERE for the Camaro.

Sunday Morning

May 24, 2009 at 12:38 pm (Day to Day) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

After re-reading that questionable Friday/Saturday ranting post, I feel as if I may have been drunk and crazy while typing.

It’s weird because it doesn’t make alot of sense, and it looks all scattery. I wasn’t even a little intoxicated. In fact, I didn’t drink anything alcoholic all day. Just coffee and water.

Let’s just say that I was,  and never go back.

The party for my nephew was rocking. Not at all lame or boring. (Here’s to you J and A!) The presents were a hit of course, and the food was good. My sissy had cupcakes and mini-eclairs as birthday cake. ALWAYS an excellent choice. You can never go wrong with desserts you can put into your mouth whole. We stayed too late, and then stayed up a little later after we got home. Had to do something to work that pastry out of the system…

The only thing I didn’t get to do was play my music. Boo Hoo. I really don’t mind, I can always use it at my nieces graduation party we will be hosting in 2 weeks (8th grade–so it’s perfectly aged)

I will post it later for the masses. It’s really a good combo, and this is the season for it. I’ll even throw in the Mud Bug Boil play list, another one for the same family that I  slaved on and never got played, but it’s good for the older mixed crowd. I had yesterday’s list  named Birthday Party, but I guess I’ll just trim it up to Party or Popular Party or something that indicates a “younger” type party, but not baby, or kegger…don’t you love when I type the exact thing I’m thinking? I know Amanda does. That’s what makes this so interesting and exciting that people would want to read it over and over, and then post a comment about how very cool and interesting it is,  because I’m just SO exciting and NOT stupid. Ha.

Take a look at the picture below. It is a helicopter that you control on an arm and try to pick up a cargo box with. My brother, the engineer, got it for my 4-year old nephew as his birthday present. Two hours later and one battery change in, he (my brother) finally figured out how to make it pick up the box. The pick-up hook attached to the underbelly of the helicopter actually EXTENDS. One more time around, and…hooked! Up it went. I took photo proof so all those years of schooling wouldn’t be a complete waste…Next time, Tom,  just buy the kid a talking firetruck.

Here’s to you my brother:

May 24, 2009 at 11:53 am (Chevy Camaro, Day to Day, Dodge Nemesis) (, , , , , , , , , )

The new Dodge Challenger has but one arch enemy; one adversary; one nemesis in all the land…

The new Chevy Camaro.

A superhero rivalry forged in the 70’s; depicted with copycat body styles and similarly hued skin paint. Both left for dead, but brought back now to battle each other for American supremacy. If you favor one, you tend to dislike the other. I’m not really sure why that is, but it holds true for me.

I’m all about the Mopar, cool as hell, and popular with all the fast, Hemi-power people. Six pack and all that…without the flashy graphic help of a cool movie…ahem…

But, the new Camaro did receive quite a boost last year thanks to a certain yellow Bumblebee, in a Transforming motion picture flick…and that’s the only one I’ve ever seen. And I’ve never seen one on the street. And I’ve never seen it in red.

Until yesterday.

Saturday afternoon, on my way to my sissy’s…we stopped at the oasis for a coffee and there it was in the parking lot. I barely had time to get my camera out before it sensed the enemy and took off.

The picture is grainy and from a distance. I tried to get it, but it was too fast. I am not really fond of the Camaro but you have to keep an eye on your enemies… Vigilance is key; Complacency is death.

I’ll get her next time.
