I may be in trouble....

You know....sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. And this week - I seem to be a magnet for trouble. Hell, just make it my middle name.

First I get home on Monday and have a phone message from the Chief of Police of the neighboring town. Seems they want to fine me because my yard looks bad. I checked outside, the landlord was mowing. He said to ignore it, that Chief has no say in my town. So I did. Next day. Another message. We've been playing phone tag all day - but I have to say, this is the first time I've ever been contacted by a Chief of Police - ever.

Then.....I get in the office this morning to an email from our "IT Dept". (one guy) saying I violated our intenet standards by visiting this site. I had a good laugh over that. Until I got called into my boss's office and asked to explain. I did laugh and apologize. I thought about explaining "blogs" to him, but didn't like where that could lead so just said it won't happen again. (Funny though - no alerts for going to Harvey's site!)

But the REAL trouble was this afternoon. And I'm just gonna 'fess up now. TNT? Teresa? You might want to sit down for this!

One of the girls at my plant was having a Pampered Chef party. Pampered Chef. Kitchen Gadgets. Oh. My. Goodness. (but the whole set of those)

I shopped. I ordered.

And I'm NOT sorry.

Yep - trouble is my middle name!!

I thought I did too, but they have some really cool new I needed to replace a couple of things. Hee Hee

I love my gadgets.

You have a sickness Tammi. I am going to go research Kitchen Gadgets Anonymous for you now.

Okay, that didn't work - Harv's fault.

What the hell, Tammi... TNT and Teresa tell you not to dig through the room full of boxes for your "kitchen" playthings, so you comply by ordering more?!?

You've missed the point, Missy.

I went to a Pampered Chef party once, and was the envy of everyone there. I explained that I don't really cook - the Hubster does, and he told me to buy him whatever I thought he would enjoy having. Good thing he likes to cook!

I've heard that SWG's site has been banned in many places before. Somewhere I read it was even classified as a "hate site." I need to go read it more and take some lessons...

My wife has all those gadgets, she loves them.

I'm curious as to what is going on with your police guy. If he's the chief of a neighboring town, I don't see how he would have any authority over your town... what so ever.

That reminds me. I must order 3 things from the Pampered chef today!! I need the gravey wisk, the oil pump, and a new spatula. I want to know what you ordered, and a product reveiw.
How did you explain you were at a "restricted site?".

Do the police have nothing better to do than bother you about your grass?

Posted by: Oddybobo at May 20, 2005 06:53 AM could take that two ways. You could either feel really really safe that all the chief of police has to do is be the yard police because there is absolutely no crime going on except for bad yards.

Or, you can feel like your tax money is being flushed down the toilet and start installing security measures because your chief of police is not in the streets fighting crime, he's investigating foul yards.

I'll leave that one up to you :-)

.. what, Ogre??... a hate site?!?.. sheesh.. please find where you read that... I'd be interested in reading it...

SWG hates squirrels!

Hate criminal! :-P

Posted by: Harvey at May 20, 2005 08:25 AM

I think Harvey is right... Eric commits those hate crime things... *grin*

Tammi... we talked about this on the phone - I think you need a 12 step kitchen gadget program. Bou - she REALLY doesn't have room for anything else... trust me on this one!

As for the yard... I've been there - it's not Stepfordville... but what the Hell is the problem? I wonder if they have the wrong phone number - after all you just moved in - perhaps it belonged to someone in the other town before you got it.

The cop hears there was a new hottie in town, it is as simple as that

Posted by: ArmyWifeToddlerMom at May 20, 2005 01:34 PM

Eric's place is labeled as a hate site?!?!

Dear god, what do they think of mine??

i have more than half the PC catalog. only problem is, Frank doesn't have enough cabinet space to hold everything. i'm going to have to buy a separate cabinet to put in the garage so i'll have room for everything!
