Gone Nutty

And now for your amusement...Scrats Adventures.


So I have a few questions about God that I dont know how to answer for my friend.
We were talking about what happens to people who never get the chance to find out about God, like babies/people in remote locations of the world.
Anyways, I was pretty sure that babies would go to heaven, but didnt know about the people in remote locations, I mean, I would assume they would go as well, but I am not sure, and I guess nobody is sure, (unless there is something in the bible about it. So if anyone has any info, please let me know :).

Second questions: Why wouldnt God let someone who has lived a "good" life not go to heaven? I dont know really. I dont know the defination of "good life" but you can assume what you want there.

Hmmm as far as questions, these were the two main ones.

I might have more however later.

Working in the Nuthouse

And now its time for crazy work stories with Miranda!!!! But before we do that, I shall explain what I do. I work at a callcenter, I am technical support for a big brand name of color laser printers. I help people over the phone fix these printers. Now onto the stories.

We had a new class of agents (people who take the calls) start their first day after training. There was one new girl in particular that kinda stood out. She had had her whole ear covered in piercings. She was quiet and kinda mumbled to herself. I thought to myself that I have seen weirder (the guy who wears the black cape and hood is a little weirder). She needed a lot of help at the beginning, and my friend Audrey got to help her. She one day, just stood up, and started starring at her boss. Her boss, realized that the woman kept on staring, so she asked her if she was okay and needed help. The lady with many piercings looked at her and said, "I think I am gonna turn blue." Hmmmmm turn blue, alright now that was new. She then said "I dont like turning blue," and kept starring at her boss. Her boss asked if she needed to go home. The lady gave her another blank stare and then took off her headset and got up and went home. She later was moved to a different contract. Interesting....turning blue. Pretty weird.

Another interesting story comes a call that my friend took. He was talking to a customer about their internet connection, and the lady lost it on him. She was hysterical and accused him of kidnapping her (how I dont know), and then said she is calling the cia and mnrtc (???) and they will find him, and kill him, and its all because she cant get into her email. At the end of that call, her mother came on the phone and explained she hadnt taken her meds that morning.

Also heard on the phone was a guy who was so frustrated that he decided to "fix" his computer "his" way and took a hammer to the moniter. He suprised his family because all of a sudden there was lots of yelling from a child and wife. You could hear the glass shatter all over.He calmed down and then asked if the monitor could be fixed under the warrenty...pfftt yea right.

I cant think of any more stories at the moment, but I have a pretty credit card prank link to read.
I giggled at the end.

The Blender Blaster

Check it out:

Yep, gotta get me one of these :)

And on to other things. I am talking to a customer who seems to know more than me, which I hate. This means I cannot try and bluff my way through the call. Bah! I also dont like it that he is asking me questions that I dont know the answers to, and when I ask him questions, I feel like I am asking the stupidest things, and these are things this guy knows already. But, I will get through this, got him on hold and will hopefully find an answer out from a friend.

Doug is back from his vacation, and now he gets his nice big comfy chair back :(
I think I will print off more paper ipods and give them away.

David Hasselhoff - Hooked on a Feeling

Couldn't believe Hasselhoff did this vollentarily. He even has his 2 dogs and what looks to be his children in the video. Man, He sure loves the green screen.
So here goes...
A little about myself. Well, I am 21, I live with my parents still, and I work at a call center. I am the oldest of 3 children. I am the "experimental" child. I am engaged to my wonderful fiance Tony, who is 23 this year.

Here is a picture of me before "tanning" at cultus lake (sorry folks, this is as dark as I get, its pathetic I know).

So enough of that. I started doing this after reading my cousins' blogs. Hopefully these posts will be as intersting as theirs are.

I also have 2 cats, smiff and kiwi. Kiwi is my neurotic cat, shes part siamese and is pure white (except for the red patches--will explain those after). She's a sensitive cat, and when Aria is away for more than a few days, she will scratch her fur out in big patches. She does this until she bleeds. She's getting better at not scratching, but I find patches ever so often. The other cat is smiff, the younger dominate fat cat. That cat sits at the "trough" (as my dad calls it) all the time. She loves to eat if a person is in the same room, and doesn't like to eat without an audience watching her. Shes the stupid cat (and I feel bad for her). She was the runt, and maybe fell out of the second storey of the house and joggled her brain a little (she did fall). I think that might be why she sits on the stairs and won't move, even if you are about to step on her. If you do step on her its because she will not move, and she will yowl, and get up, but then get under foot again. Cats have 9 lives for a reason, and this one has used up few. I am amazed that I havent killed her by stumbling on her in the mornings. Guess the fat saves her.

This is my fat cat Smiff at Mikaelas birthday. She hunkered down on the ground and scooted on her belly to get the lai off her neck. She loves to lay on her back, in the middle of the room.

This cat has hips :)

Anyways, I will post more later on
