New subject!

There are a few new photos on the photo blog. Not many. I need to get off my ass and get the other fifty up!

New subject!

Peggy, who either has no blog (sadness, get one!) or does not want me stalking her blog and therefore never leaves me a link, mentioned that wireless cards are awesome.

The thing is, we Do have a wireless card. Sigh. Here in Canada, we do things a bit different than all the rest of you.

Our desk top computer - a big bulky dinosaur used only for stealing borrowing things to download and storing pictures - is wireless.

I can take it anywhere I want, I can download photos in the back yard while eating any flavor of Popsicle I want! I can take it to the bathroom with me or I could, I dunno, blog while having sex. (although I would hate to see the typos if I tried that!) It is completely mobile.

Unfortunately the lap top is not portable. It is chained to my kitchen counter by cords and wires. I know, It's weird, but lets all try to deal with this as adults please.

New subject!

On Thursday, on my way into the city for shopping and coffee, I was pulled over at 6:12 pm for speeding. I was going about 20 K over the limit. I had my license and the little green paper from the glove box all ready when he got to my window. I handed them to him and said "Yea, I know I was speeding" before he had a chance to say anything. I was in a hurry and I wanted to just get my ticket and go!

Mr.Police Man asked me why I was in such a hurry, and I did the only thing a responsible mom of three does. I lied.

"During dinner, my seven year old told me he needs stuff for school tomorrow and I am trying to get in and out of the city and back home before bedtime so I can tuck them in." I told him.

He politely asked me to slow down and reminded me of the dangers of speeding and then sent me on my way with a warning that if I don't hurry I won't make it back in time.

I found that a bit confusing, was he telling me I was allowed to speed? Oh well, no ticket! Yay!

Y'all have an awesome weekend!

Wow. Canadian officers are so much nicer.

Actually I've never had a speeding ticket, but I did get a ticket once for running a red light. To this day I don't think I really ran one, the light changed to yellow as I was turning and I hit the breaks out of surprise. I just happened to have big city plates in a small town in Kansas.

NYPD cops are either really nice, or really crabby. There's no inbetween.

Shelli Blogs are great, stalkers are better!

Shelli LMAO @ first excitement. Do you want the code to your BPR Firsties badge now?

RoxDar Work sucks. and I do not usually speed, but I had so much to get done and in the end we ran out of time and I will have to come in again, but remind me on monday when we talk to tell you what I found at Home Outfitters, omg, its way cool!

MetalMom Heh. Im not bad, unless you want me to be! Are you pregnant with a blog yet?

Marilyn I think, since he was an older guy he had kids, and has had that happen to him before. But whatever the case, Im glad I did not get a ticket

I found it DOES help to look like you're about to break down, too...when K was in labor was the only time I've gotten out of a ticket...

And you are SO backwards with the computers & wireless thing. ;-)

Oh you lucky duck!! I would have gotten a ticket anyway!

Tug backwards? what do you mean? its just that the lap top kept crashing and was really slow, so we hooked it up directly and the desktop, since we never use it, it was ok to be slow! I might get JJ to change it for the summer so I can surf outside.

Mr.Fab Me? lie? No, Never!

FlipFlopMomma heh. Just puff out your tummy and tell them you are in labour. if the escort you to the hospital, go thru and then say, oh, must have been gas, my bad!

Coolness! You mentioned me.
As Shelli already said, I'm just a stalker at this point. When I finally get brave enough to dive into the bloggy ocean (yeah, I'm stalking Janna, too), you'll be the 2nd one to know. I have to tell Shelli first cuz she's gonna be my fairy blogmother.
