WTF Wednesday - the Friday Edition

WTF Time?

It's frickin' Friday already. I thought you were only supposed to fly when you're having fun? Nope. Whoopin' it up has not occured to delay the Wednesday portion of this WTF. Just a busy Swirl Girl.

WTF Earthquakes?
Wanna know what it's like? Okay - put your arms out to the sides. Starting with the tips of your right middle finger and going through your core all the way through to the tip of your left middle finger...do "the wave".
C'mon, you know you can.
You know you want to.
That's what this one felt like. It's the 3rd or 4th one I have felt since living out here. How long did it last? As long as it takes you to put your arms out to the sides and do "the wave". It's was really loud too. Then later that night, there was another. Epicenter about 8 miles away. You have like , what - 3 seconds to think 'what to grab' and 'get out'? Oh yeah - and the kids...grab the kids, too. Them.


WTF my dentist story?
You know how when you are in college and everyone in the dorm gets their period at the same time? Well, this here sorority of a bloggy ladies seem to have all suffered dental woe. For that I am sorry. Put your big girl pants on and go get it done. While I was there there was a woman about 88 who had to have all kinds of work done. She gave me that "take care of your teeth Missy" kind of sad face.


WTF - the end of school is only 6 weeks away??
This is the time of year all the 'end ofs' occur. The end of softball season ($50.oo for coaches gifts and dinner at team party). The end of pre-school ($20 for teacher appreciation gifts, kindergarten orientation, pre-school graduation complete with cap and gown, $20.00 for obligatory graduation photo packet of pre-schooler in aforementioned cap and gown). The end of 4th grade ( book club graduation which Emily will receive her Master's degree, the 4th grade play, Open House, carnival, volunteer for this, that and the other thing).


WTF swine flu hysteria?
I get the whole concept of pandemic...but did they really think this out? Sure, one kid may have the flu - but to close an entire High School for a week? I have an idea - why not have them stay at school for a week? Sort of like an educational quarantine. Do the people in charge at the CDC that the kids are just going to stay home and study? No. They are gonna unleash on your town and spread whatever they may or may not have all over the place.
Leaving you with this...it made me laugh.

LOL - that's the silver lining of our swine flu quarentine - a lot of the end of the year stuff got cancelled. Yeah!

We only have 4 more weeks left - aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!

Fine. I'll put my big girl panties on and call back the stalker, I mean my dentist's receptionist.

Happy?

Happy Happy Mother's Day!!

P.S. the earthquake thing, yeah, scares the pee out of me. Give me an old fashioned Texas tornado any day of the week.

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Oh sure, beat me down on the dental issues and don't even give me a proper shout-out. Hmph!!!!

Okay, super scary on the earthquake, even if it was a tiny "wave" one. I think I would freak!

Swine flu picture was hysterical!!!!!! heeheeheeeeeeee

I thought of you last week...when I saw the news about the earthquake. And I hoped all your wine was safe. And you and hubby and the girls, too. Of course.
