Basketful of Thoughts

-I’ve been reflecting on my time as a case manager with CHARLEE and considered whether I should write out some of my memories and experiences in what was one of the toughest and rewarding jobs I have had.

-Case Managers for DCF and the private agencies that care for abused, abandoned, and neglected children are some of the kindest, most caring, and under paid people in FL.

-If you could have seen and experienced some of the things that I did while at CHARLEE you would probably feel the same way.

-Marcela claims she is not going to play Mario Kart ever again because it cheats against her. I told her she should quit using the steering wheel and start using the nun chuck.

-I was going to purchase 2 more Wii remotes and 2 nun chucks, but then I changed my mind when I saw that each remote is $40 and each nun chuck is $20. Wow!

-My little cinnamon peach faced love bird has been acting extremely territorial of her cage for the past few weeks. Last night when I got home, I saw why. She laid 3 little lovebird eggs.

-Does anyone want a cinnamon peach faced lovebird? She’s really cute and she can make breakfast for a Liliputian.

-I can’t wait to be back in church this week. Missing church every other week is the one downer to day shift.

-I got a recognition at work today along with $14 in cafeteria certificates for reporting a safety concern that everyone else in security has been reporting for over a year. I guess I just talked to the right person.

-Several guys at work said I need to buy everyone lunch since I was the lucky winner for reporting something that everyone else reported before.

-Only about 2 weeks are left until “The Happening” and “Incredible Hulk” come out. I’m going to see those. Anyone want to come?

-I’m trying to get a fishing trip together for Monday. I hope the weather calms down. 8 foot waves can be really good for the natural chum (barf) but it isn’t really that much fun.

-San Antonio is about to get finished off. After losing at home a couple nights ago in a game that they blew again, they are down 3-1. This series could just as easily have been 3-1 with SA up. I don’t believe they can recover from the latest heart breaking loss. They need two road wins and a home win to stay alive. That’s probably not going to happen since LA has not even lost at home in the entire playoffs.

-Boston only needs to hold serve with 2 games remaining to finish off Detroit. They are now up 3-2 with one home and one away game left. The Pistons came up a couple points short last night having come from 14 points back in the 4th quarter.

    Hulk and Happening, I’m in.

  2. I’ll see “The Happening”. I adore horrifying thrillers (and screwball comedies). It comes out on Friday the 13TH (of June). When were you planning to see it ?

  3. June 13 is also Pastor Trav’s birthday. We have a couple options (at least): We could go opening night but I don’t get off work until around 630PM. So your looking at 730 PM on the early side. Later would be fine with me. OR We could go Saturday or Sunday afternoon. What works best for you and Bill? Maybe I could talk Trav into going. 🙂

  4. The movie tix would obviously be more cheaper on Saturday or Sunday afternoon, and of course I’d be more awake at that time to enjoy the flick (rather than say 9 or 10 at night). For a horrifying thriller I need to be wide awake so that I can experience every single bonechilling momento.

    Maybe we can take Trav out to dinner for his 38TH birthday (hehe). 😆

    Well, well, well, well…let’s see…where do I start??—–I remember someone I know—good friend at that—fellow Canefan—gee whiz, the actual author of this blog who said the Lakers wouldnt make it out of the West—now in previous entries, no mention was made of how u were wrong and that my take that the Lakers were the best was laughable–see below:

    Vic, to me that is laughable. The Lakers will not even make it out of the west.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk….

    Moral of the story—stop overdosing on Wii and too much ESPN!!
