A pirate walked into a bar with a steering wheel sticking out of the front of his pants.
The barkeeper said "Sir, do you realize that you have a steering wheel sticking out of the front of your pants?"
The pirate said "Arrr, it's drivin' me nuts!"

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day everyone! :)

shopping list: rubber gloves

I got a bunch of chili peppers at the farmers market today, to make a big thing of salsa. I decided to cut up everything this evening to make it tomorrow. I didn't use any gloves. I am seriously paying for it now, and wondering how the heck I will be able to fall asleep with these burning hands... I will be buying rubber gloves post haste.

a thought

I was just thinking, I kind of like being in an industry that is predominantly male. Lots of male attention, and although it's not THAT kind of attention, it is still nice to be interacting. I sometimes think I do better in those situations, where the majority of members are men. It's a good competition factor for me, enough but not too much to be personally destructive.
But then again, I most definitely DO NOT do well in fantasy football draft situations where I am the ONLY female having an unclear concept of my job as draft coordinator where ALL the other people are men, men who have a clear understanding of the whole fantasy football thing. That was an interesting scene for sure. I was the auctioneer at a co-worker's fantasy football draft on Thursday night. It was not horrible I guess, but it was definitely weird. At least I made $50 so I have cash to spend at the Minnesota state fair today. Yessss! :)
