Bam Smash Goes the Matrix

Last Thursday I got in a car accident on the way to work. A fly forward glasses fly off my face kind of accident. My airbags didn't go off though so that is good, well i guess it's good but it sorta made me wonder what would make them go off. BUt air bags are scary so I"m glad they didn't go off. Me and (e:yesthatcasey) were on our way to work early and were stopped on wehrle when a car smahsed into the back of my car and pushed me into the car in front of me and that car into the front of them. We all pulled over on the side street which weirdly enough happened to be the street my cousin lives on.

The lady in the front car also worked at IHA and I had just given a presentation to her department the other day. Casey call the po po while we all exchnaged information and took pictures of each other's cars.

The weird part is the car in front me had like no damage. It was a van but like the front of my car was pushed up and sutff but the back of her car looked like it had no damage. And the car that hit me, the front of their car was smashed but the back of my car was just had like a few scratches. The guy at the collison shop said when they take off the bumper a lot of times they find more damage than it seems.

When I tried to turn on my car it made this isansely loud scary sound. I was gonna call AAA, well actually I had casey call AAA and pretend to be me because I freak out but the police officer said the sound was ok and was just the shaking of things from the accident. Not sure why I trusted him , he wasn't a mechanic but he was a man in a uniform and frankly that seems like they must know about cars if they are in uniform.

So then I go to work and really since we were going in early I was still on time! So I didn't even really get to miss any work!

Luckily both casey and I felt fine. Though the next few days my neck was sore but it seems to be going away.

Anyway now I have a rental and my car has $3000 in damage. I was nervous it was going to be totaled even though it didn't seem super damaged and I wouldn't have enough to buy a new car so I was so glad it was only $3000. The car won't be ready until next week so I have a rental. It is an altima and it is a lot nicer than my car. It has that keyless press button start which freaks me out.

I haven't heard from the insurance yet but I am pretty sure it has to be the girls fault who hit me.

This was my first accident I was ever in that was like scary and smashy and glass flying off the facey but I survived.

Reader's Digest- I love thee!

So I just renewed my subscription to Reader's Digest. It is seriously the most informative and entertaining thing ever. I seriously love it.I get so excited when it arrives and so sad when I get to the end of an issue. The thing is besides emotional stories it also just includes so much information from shopping tricks to eating tips to cleaning help. And the thing is it is not stuff I would ever look up so I would never know it if I didn't see it here. Here are just a few things from the April issue:

A funny story:
When a family firend passed away, my granddaughter took her three year old to visit the widow. As they approached the door she told him to "make sure you tell her how sorry you are" and he replied "why, I didn't kill him"

One night when Toni Morrison thought she was going to be raped/robbed she decided instead of running to turn and face the person behind her and he actually ran away.

An appeals court recently ruled if you text someone that you know is driving and they get an accident while reading the text you can be charged. If you did not know they were driving you cannot be charged.

Milk will stay fresh several day longers if you add a pinch or two of salt to the carton.

A woman who was on worker's comp claiming she could not even lift her arms anymore got in trouble because she was on the Price is Right and had no problem spinning the big wheel.

If candy is wrapped youe at 30% less.

I have a hard time feeling bad or feeling like they are heroic when people who are not poor and have other options choose to stay behind and stay in their house when their is a flood/mudslide/fire warning. There was a story about these people who refused to leave because they thought they could handle it and then it was a huge disaster and they did survive through some crazy ways but then rescuers had to risk their life to go save them. Sometimes I think if you were warned numerous times and chose not to leave then rescuers should not risk their lives for you. That was your choice so noone else should have to risk their lives for your bad choices.

There was a really sweet story about this woman who is a writer and it all started when this librarian found her the perfect book when she was a child and then years later she saw the librarian and was trying to telling her how grateful she was but the librarian now had alzheimers and didn't understand what was going on. the moral was let people know now if they have made your life so much better. Don't wait it might be too late.

IN a little town in Spain the whole town won this huge lottery and all got tons of money and yet they all stayed where tehy live and just got a few fancy things. There was one man who did not buy in and he did not win and that was sad for him but he made a dcoumentary about them all and that was good for him. The documentary was going to be about how money changed this town and ended up being about how it didn't.

Yellow bulbs lead to less spiders on your porches.

WEBMD offers instructions on how to mend a broken heart.

And I'll leave you with this:
A lion comes across two men, one reading and one writing, The lion pounces and devours the reader and leaves the writer alone. Why? Because everyone knows that a writer cramps and a reader digests.

St. Patty's Day

SO i haven't been feeling well for the last few days. Actually for like the last week I have just felt generally nauseus but nothing too bad. Then on Thrusday I was hung over but I also felt really bleh. By later in the day I felt like fevery and shaky and vomity and was vomity all night and couldn't eat anything. Then Friday I still felt really nauseus and crappy and left work early. Saturday I was feeling better but still everytime I eat or drink something it made me feel nauseus and I am devoloping kind of a cough and stuffed lungs. I was debating if I should do St. patty's day but I just can't pass it up. I am feeling better but I feel like it is a thin line that I am gonna just end up sick again. But maybe the St. Patrick miracle is that beer is the one thing that won't make me nauseus and some curlied hair dancing might be just the miracle cure I need!

From Best Butt to Sweatpants

I've been kinda lame lately. NOt too much party for this boy. I think a lot of it has to do with the weather. And work is stressful lately so I don't want to be hung over and stuff. I just don't want to leave my house when it's so cold too! BUT I can't belive just a few short years ago I was out winning mardi gras best butt contests and now I am home in sweat pants watching ru paul's drag race. Ok I kinda love being home in sweat pants watching ru paul's drag race but I am ready for summer and going out and time off of work! I think what I miss most about not going out for Mardi Gras is Chevon Davis singing Turn Back Time. I found a poor substitution in this...

Soaps Part 2

Besides the slaps , soaps are just so good. Look at this montage, there's royalty, mass shootings at a coronation, car accidents, alien twins falling from space, explosions, brides in jail, brides attacking grooms, dancing, swimming and a country western bar, and of course lots and lots of sweet sweet love making. What more could you want?

Family History

So I started researching my family to see if they might be secret Italian royalty and I came across this. It is a Buffalo census from 1930 which has to be them but one of the names is wrong. Ellen is my Aunt Helen (e:czarkasm)'s grandmother. I think it is at least. I think they are wrong, ynless she's always had her name wrong.

Princess Mafalda

My Nonna used to always talk about Princess Mafalda. There isn't tons of info on her but she always had a special place in my mind. I guess she was kinda the star of the Italian royal family when she was a child and everyone loved her. She was an Italian princess from1902-1944. Her husband was a german royal relative and nazi and she was thought to be a secret anti-nazi fighter. She was arrested by German officials and was eventually killed in a concentration camp. I was kinda surprised that an Italian royal was killed in a concentration camp. Then I looked into it a little more and there was lots of princes and princesses from all over Europe who died in concentration camps. Not tons but more than I would have thought. I don't know why that is surprising but it seems like royalty , they always have a connection and a way out of any situation but I guess not really.
