Rosanna Rosanna-danna... and bean dip

Since the boss is away today, and I very responsibly got all (most) of my work done, I'm thinking I can take a minute to blog...and don't think I won't be sneaking out my notebook to write...that's next.

I have been thinking today... of a childhood time that I'd love to make a story out of. A significant person that made an impact.

Mine is an old friend. In the third grade, we got a new kid at school, and she and I became inseparable. She was the only "divorced kid" I'd ever met. Tells you something about the times changing, huh? She lived with her mom in an apartment complex...another novelty to me then. I was enamored with going over there and spending night after night eating junk out of bags and mac and cheese from a box and going swimming because--duh! There was a pool! She introduced me to staying up all night and watching Saturday Night Live (in the days of Rosanna Rosannadanna) which I'd never seen before, and I learned about laying on a blanket on the floor watching Sat Night Live and Star Search eating nacho cheese doritos and bean dip in a can. To this day, bean dip is an instant nostalgia, I'm back in the third grade. She was so worldly, had Showtime (when that's all there was--remember Mr Bill?) knew all the songs to Grease, knew all kinds of cool dance moves, was allowed to tape Teen Beat pictures to every inch of her walls, and was a free spirit. I thought she had the best life in the world.

To her, I had a house, a yard, a dog, real cooked meals that were cooked by my mom and not me, a room that you didn't hear the neighbors through the walls, and structure. A mom that didn't spend her evenings drinking. My house had rules and boundaries. She craved it. I never saw that till I was grown looking back.

I remember now her talking about going to visit her dad in another city, that he was coming...he was coming...he was coming... but he never did. I didn't realize it because I wasn't familiar with divorce and I didn't know any different, but after several years she stopped talking about him.

I had led a very sheltered life till I met her, and she gave me the world. She led a sketchy life on rails, and I gave her Mayberry. LOL. One day, I want to make that into a story. Well, hell, I kinda just did, didn't I?

Do you have such a thing in your life? Something poignant or funny or sad or intense in some way--enough to warrant writing about it?

I have many things like that. I think that's why I chose to write YA. I met some very interesting people when I was growing up. And as for your story, sounds like a full length novel in the making! Go for it!

Kathryn Magendie said... many things I thought of as "normal" weren't so normal at all --

I loved this story.

Also, I used to love Doritos and Bean Dip - and Rosanne Rosannnadanna

I think this would make quite a story -- I love reading, and writing, about these kinds of things.....

In today’s rocky economic climate, most households are cutting back wherever they can. I too faced the problem and wated to cut down on
cable tv, I tried P2P, but then not impressed with it. I started collecting ways to watch my favorite tv shows online.
I have listed then in my blogspot, I try to cover as many tv shows and matches as possible, to help others like
me to watch their favorite sports or tv shows online for free.

But my list is not complete, I don't know where to find some international shows, for sports you have numerous resources, Can someone here help me with that?
Please tell me you favorite shows that you watch regularly and also some ideas to cover them. If you need to know the shows that I cover, then visit my blogs

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

So I bit the bullet -- bought myself a [url=]Fatman iTube Valvedock Carbon Edition[/url] and I've got to say I made out like a bandit. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months back and just couldn't get that music out of my head because it blew me away. I searched high and low for a great deal and finally found it at [url=]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I phoned them first and asked a bunch of questions and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was perfect. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they ship outside of Australia but you won't be sorry if they do.

Very cool...

Всем привет!

Недавно перед мной встала задача, куда деть накопишиеся [b]европоддоны[/b], или еще их называют [b]Паллеты[/b],
[b]Поддоны[/b], [b]Европаллет[/b]ы Размеры 800*1200, 1000*1200- Это [u]Тара Пром назначения[/u].
Немного предистории.
Сам я работаю кладовщиком на складе. Нам приходит много продукции на [b]Европоддонах[/b],
товар продаем а поддоны остаются, у нас встал вопрос куда их девать.
Раньше мы их выкидывали.
Потом я узнал, что за поддоны можно получить деньги.
Начал обзванивать фирмы везде были цены дешевые,
потом знакомые мне подсказали, что в Челябинске есть такая Фирма "[b]Уралсклад[/b]",
около 10 лет на Рынке Промышленной Тары с прекрасной репутацией.
Я нашел их сайт в интернет - [url=][/url] и позвонил по тел. +7(351) 233-07-14.
Буквально через час подъехал их представитель, Авто с Логотипом "[url=]Поддоны Челябинск[/url]".
Цены закупочные оказались самые высокие в г. Челябинске.
Все цивилизовано грузчики загрузили [b]Паллеты[/b] ешё и лом поддонов купили, расчитались на месте наличными.
Про другие фирмы я узнавал либо Цены низкие, либо Бракуют много, да и денег от них не дождешься.

Так что если у вас завалялись [b]европоддоны[/b], не торопитесь их выбрасывать, лучше обменяйте их на деньги.
