Top Five coolest jobs ever that I wish I had thought to do…

Fives 4 Comments

What are the top five careers you would want?  Not to include your current job.  I don’t mean what else did you want to be growing up, but what are some awesome jobs that you wish you had thought of.

5) Zoo/aquarium animal caretaker – when i was in Brisbane Australia, we went to see Steve Irwin’s zoo.  There were a couple of trainers playing with baby tigers (kittens?).  Thats a job that would be awesome!

4) Mythbuster – I would give anything to be on that show!

3) National Geographic photographer – I’ve always liked photography and travel.  Maybe if i worked for them i could go to Antarctica and play with the Penguins!

2) Navy Seal – They get all sorts of cool toys!  I wanted to be one for awhile, but i’m neither male nor buff.

1) Fighter pilot – This was my older brother’s dream, and I didn’t want to copy him, but now i kinda wish i did.  I don’t know if i have the stomach for it though.

Does anyone like Caffeine-Free coke?

Rants No Comment

Have you tried Caffeine-Free Coke recently? It seems that every few years I will think to myself, “I hear caffeine isn’t so good for you and sometimes I’d like to be able to have a Coke and have it not keep me awake, I think I’ll try it.” I always immediately regret that decision on first sip. The memory eventually fades and the cycle will begin again. Apparently I’m not the only one who despises it.

I decided to break away from the usual Valerie ranting and raving and go with a positive one this time. Plus, last week we covered where we’ve been, and where we’d like to go, now I want to know…

The Top Five Things I Love About Living in ____________. (Insert wherever you are currently living)

Seattle, WA

5) You can take a ferry boat for 30 minutes and feel like you’ve completely escaped.

4) Sporting events end before my bedtime.

3) I don’t have to scrape ice off of my windshield every morning for 4 months straight (normally).

2) It has GORGEOUS mountains (and volcanos).

1) Dr. McDreamy!!!!!! (HA!)

Playing with Fire

Life 1 Comment

Here at the house, new fire extinguishers have been purchased. I think we had at least one in the house before now, but I really can’t be sure. I think this purchase is a result of the tablecloth on the dining room table catching fire on Christmas Day. I had been wondering where the fire extinguishers were located in the house. I assumed we had them and had some theories on where I would look should the situation present itself. Probably not the best idea. The new ones are still in the boxes. They should probably be taken out of the box and placed strategically around the house so we can forget we have them again.

Top 5 Vacation Destinations

Fives 5 Comments

The only rule is you have to have been there yourself, this is not a top 5 “where I want to go” 

5. Jackons Hole, WY – Where I was adopted into a family of Bison.

4. Outer Banks, NC – only if you’re in a really big house with lots of people

3. Colorado – The woman flock their like the salmon of Capastrano

2. Ireland – It’s where I learned to drink.  That’s like Wayne Gretzky teaching you how to score, Michael Jordan teaching you how to be clutch, or Terrell Owens teaching you how to be a dick.

1. Hawaii – Needs no explanation

I want announcers that watch football games

Sports No Comment

I’m always disgusted with announcers and football coverage in general. I could go on for hours about on screen graphics, sounds, and ads. The recent trend that has been driving me especially crazy is announcers that appear to only watch SportsCenter and listen to hype than actually watch the games.
