Shoprite Woowee!

So today I was at shoprite and I was getting some pasta because it was on sale. I was standing at a huge display at the end of an aisle and this old ady walks up to me and goes is Pam down this aisle? My first thought was to look at her with a straight face and say "I don't know Pam what's she look like?" but then realized how dumb that was and just said I don't know. The lady kept asking me for help throughout the store. Do I look like I work at Shoprite? I was wearing a green shirt their employees wear grey sweatshirts! Did this woman think I was her personal helper. Whats the deal with old woman thinking everyone is there for their service it really pisses me off.

WTF ?!?!

Today was a fun day! My dad let me drive alot. I drove all over West Haven and Milford to like five stores. It was awesome! Then on the way home I wanted to make a left turn but there was a car in the intersection so I waited. This guy behind me started beeping like crazy and I wasn't in the mood for it. I ignored it and made my turn and he was right behind me. So then I made the turn onto the street before mine. It's a really big hill. So i was doing just under 30 and this guy passed me on the left. It's a two lane road meant for cars in both directions so bascially he was going the wrong way into oncoming traffic. So I beeped at him for being a dick cause he beeped at me as he passed. I also had a few choice words but I doubt he ehard them because our windows were close. Either way this idiot stopped in the middle of the road on the hill. My mother got toally pissed at me for beeping. She's always afraid people are gonna jumpt outa the car with a gun. She looks at me and goes what would you have done if he got out of the car. I looked at her and said. "I woulda hit the gas pedal real hard and ducked" She didn't like that response.

Friendsville blows

It's a vague reference to a friends episode where Ross realizes everywhere he goes it turns to friendsville and he's the mayor. I think I might be the governor.

More Stupid Quizess that tell me things I already knew

Why do I waste my time with these?

Um, school sucks!
You want to be bad. You might have it in you, you might not. Just go for it.

Do you hate school?

Congratulations! You're a moron!

Congrats, you retard. You shouldn't have even thought about taking this quiz if you knew you'd get this. You're the type of person who takes these quizzes hoping to get the best possible answer. (In this case, the smart result) You'll believe whatever it tells you, even if it says you'll die jumping off a cliff with Johnny Depp. You're also the type of person that either types completely incoherently and off topic; or you just don't understand where to put a comma. You usually talk about what you did at the mall and how cute these guys/girls were. Your age group ranges from 12-15. 16-19 if you're pathetic.
Place this in your journal with pride. You dumb ass.

Are you a moron?

Wanna make me feel better?

Buy me an ipod! Or a new laptop

My Attitude Sucks. Big Friekin Suprise. I needed a test to tell me that? Why am I wastin my time with this crap???

How Your Attitude Ranks
Your Attitude is Better than 15% of the Population
If you scored...
80-100: You've got a winner attitude. You're always optimistic and cheery. Your personality will get you far in life.
60-79: You have a good attitude. While a realist, you do see the positive side of most things. People love to be around you.
40 - 59: You have a positive attitude... somtimes. You prefer to see the world through clear glasses, not rose colored ones.
20 - 39: You have an average attitude. You take the good and bad in life as they come. Though sometimes you could use a little more good.
0-19: You have a negative attitude. You tend to see the dark side of every situation. Free ice cream? No thanks, it will just make you fat!

There's this cartoon in Mad magazine. There's one episode that takes place around Christmas. In it the main character decides the world would be a better place if he was never born. His "guardian angel" comes to show him what the world would be like if eh wasn't;t born. It turns out that every single person he had ever had an interaction with was much happier in the life they were living without him. At the end he look at his guardian angel and says "So as long as I'm born these peoples life will suck as much as mine did? I guess I'll stay around"

That's how I feel!

So today I was walking down the hall and one of the guidance counselors walked up to me and said congratulations, and I said for what and she was like you going to Israel. I was like ya it is exciting. Then another counselor congratulated me. Another counselor told everyone in the guidance suite. It's funny when people are more excited about something than you are. I guess they don't have to deal with the nervous parts that come along. They just want to see my pictures and bring back presents. Shimmy actually challenged me to try to sell bottled Israeli air to tourists next year. I think it'll work.

Have a great week, and remeber life's about investing in people. See how the people around you are doing!

P.S. Today I only spent about 1.50 on swears. I guess my day didn't suck all that much.

Money Flying out the window

So I had a little better day today. Not as bad as the beginning of the week, but not as good as I like. I have a feeling shabbos is going to suck a ton but I'm hoping it won't. I spent 3.50 on swearing today. That's a lot of money. It's a good thing I'm not Adina. Then this would have cost me 15 dollars. That's serious money. Oh ya Ari is this big enough. Old people are funny!!

Thanks to my wonderful Rav blogging in the styx I found out that McDonalds in Israel is starting to offer a Schwarma sandwhich. They also have a funny commercial check it out here.

yummm schwarma
check out the movie here: http://www.mcdonalds.co.il/popups/mcShuarma.html


So I haven't posted in like 3 weeks and now I posted a bazillion times today whatever. We voted for class superlatives today. I found out I almost won class clown. I'm really happy about that.

Mishenichnas Adar Marbim Besimcha. Try to be in Simcha
How did I get a freaking 22??!?! I'm the most immature person I know

You Are 22 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.


I posted this comment in SB's blog and I really think it's true.

This is what I wrote: "I think that sometimes we really think noone cares how our day went or what happened during it. Even when people pretend to care it can make you feel better." Now I'm not really advocating for fake feelings but I think that we should actually ask the people around how they're day went. That's my second challenge for everyone including myself. Next time you talk to someone see how they're doing.

It could really make them feel better.

As Meir said, Life is about investing in people.

Curses for Sale

So Adina and I have a challenge. Everything we say two pre-selected swear words we both put a certain amount in tzedakah. She puts in a dollar and I put in a quarter. She obviously swears less even though the words she says would hardly be considered swears in my repertoire.

Well anyway yesterday I spent 50 cents swearing which was probably a fluke. Today was more normal I spent about $3.50 on swears. Is that a lot?

Life really really sucks. I know everyone says try to find the good but alot of times it's just not there.
