JACKIESUE AND BABS GO TO TOWN

So, off we go..Had to go to the other dollar store as we don't carry any of the vitamins I take and dollar general does..although they are fazing out several that I take..Like Melatonin and fish oil..Fuckity fuck fuck fuck..So I got 2 bottles and will probably go back and get the rest as at $2 is almost $2 cheaper than any place in town and don't know what they are at the House of Satan. Babs and I have a tendency to act like 9 year olds when we go anywhere...Tuesday was no exception. Babs found some note papers that were letters..I laughed and said wonder if they have an F and a U....they did..so I bought one of each, $1 for both...Then we went and made fun of all the merchandise...and I rearranged one of the displays because the one in the middle was too big and you couldn't get it off the shelf..So I took it and swapped it out with the smaller stuff on the top shelf..Babs said you're not working and besides you don't work here. Said, I don't care, this is just wrong.. When we went to check out I saw the girl I always bake for and said, I should have known that you would be up here eating. She laughed and said where's my cookies?...Told her I was much to busy to bake anymore but when I did I would bake her something too. Then showed her my F and U and told her I was going to put them on my front door to keep the neighbors away...We went to West Food Mart where we made fun of the Statues of Mary...Babs was holding her up saying this is what you need, she can lead you to the the road of good or something like that...I said to Mary...pack a lunch...Then we went to the Laundry Mat so I could get $5 worth of quarters to do my laundry. Then I noticed my blood sugar was dropping it was 4pm and hadn't eaten since 10 am....and we saw that the new Mexican restaurant was open..Las Campecino. (when I googled it to get some images for this post I found out they are spelling it wrong..it's Campensino.)...There was no one there, but we found out it was there first day open...We had to have help reading the menu as it was all in Spanish..I had the esada de pourca on gordito bread, and Babs had Chicken Fajitas with rice and beans.. She had water and I was going to get tea but it came already sugared so had water...We had chips and it came with green and red salsa..and the green is so good...I don't eat red if there is green..and it's fantastic. I played some music on the juke box, one by Joe and la familie, Santana and someone else, I forget...Lots of horns and accordions..My pork with red sauce was really really good, but not sure Babs was thrilled with her fajitas, although the chicken was very tender, but a little bland...it was $8...sonof agun..Plus the lady let me have a togo cup of green salsa and I had it on my eggs yesterday morning and tossed some in my oatmeal today...not bad...

Went back to work yesterday after my 2 days off and found they have hired a new guy and when he gets settled in and they think he can handle it, I will get Sunday's and Monday's off...and get this...Tom says, that way we won't have to worry about you working when the Cowboys play...yeah, like I was going to worry about that....They play...........I don't work...Big ole F U on that one..

Soon as I came home Tuesday I ripped off some of the F's and U's and slipped them in the mail slot for Charlotte the manager, figured if anyone needed an F U, it was her...then I put them on my door...soon as I get the film back, I'll post it...but this is what the letters look like...

Holy Shit!...I just heard the weather report today...90 degrees, and yesterday they had hail, tornadoes and wind storms all around us...we had sun and a little wind..It's fucking glorious out today...fuck me till the sun sets...

I bought my initial too, gee, Jackie Sue, you're always thinking! LOL!

You and Babs sound like me and Murphy. It's great to have a girl friend you can goof around in at the Dollar Store!

damn... i can't take melatonin- it gives me flu symptoms... i once had to leave work early because i had gotten paid the day before and gone out and bought melatonin to help me sleep (this job started at 7 am) the manager asked my cousin who had gotten me the job if i was hung over- that was before i started drinking...

i will get paid may 16th, and will be sending your's and sooners book out- i hope you guys like them- it really thrills me to be able to join this impromptu book club-

ok, laters-

Big Tex said...

LOL, "pack a lunch"...

I think I'm going to start taking melatonin and see how it works. I take sleeping pills right now, but they've gotten to where they don't work like they used to. Case in point, me up posting this at 1:30 in the morning on a work night.

I need to go and get all the letters. Sometimes I like to use other words, sometimes too many.
Always fun to see West through the Jackiesue perspective.
I worked in a discount department store before I went into the Air Force. I ran the Auto toys and sporting goods departments.
My kids and other people look at me strange when I take something off a shelf at a store and automatically front or rearrange the shelf. When I really get going I will pick something up someone just dropped wherever they were and return it to the proper shelf 10 aisles away.
Gonna be rainy and cool all the way through the weekend here.

Hey, if you can't get fish oil, add flaxseed to your food. Just toss it in with everything -- has the same health benefit, plus it adds a crazy amount of protein for just a little bit. You can grind it up if you don't like the crunch (it doesn't really have much flavor) but you have to grind it right before you use it or it loses its nutrients. (I use a small coffee grinder.)

ydg-- i bet you are just hella fun with magnetic letters on the fridge....

when i look at the colores of your FU i think of my old school, lsu.

btex -- on a work day, i take melatonin if i wake up in the middle of the night, say 3 ayem. n my experience at least it's got a short duration and is pretty quick but can precipitate some totally weird ass dreaming

sage: F U always reminds me of the odd couple on tv..when oscar is yelling at felix about leaving notes all over the house for him, and then said it took me 2 weeks to figure out that the f u at the end of the notes stood for felix unger...i still laugh over that..
billy:gimme an f...gimme a u..gimme a c..gimme a k...what's that spell fuck.what's that spell fuck...
one of my all time favorite songs...one two three four what are we fighting for..?
alan:always for you my friend..
doralong:your invited..any time...come at westfest, there will be a bunch of bloggers here...
rox:you should see us at walmart...holy shit.
rudegirl:i aim's to please..
zero:oh cool..you got the job...some people have trouble with melatonin, but it works great for me.

bigtex:i really like it and have been taking it every night almost for over 2 years...it does give me strange dreams..but then my dreams have always been strange..

nitwit:yah, i find my self fronting shelves when i go to the grocery stores and know they think im nuts..but they already thought i was nuts so that's no biggy..we're going to stay in the 90's but still might get some rain..yeah!...my garden will need it..
rebecca:yup, going to try the flaxseed oil...but fish oil is pretty cheap even at the drug store..
unokhan:i've been taking it for over 2 years and it works for me..the dreams are weird though...but mine always were..so thats not new..
i used to have a set of words..about 1oo and you could arrange them in any way your little heart desired...like my heart or i am..you are etc..i would put some pretty raunchy stuff up on the refer door..granddaughters would come over and censor them..

That sounds like fun. I haven't had a day like that in too long to even remember!

Gadfly said...

Heh...

So when is this big Westfest thing again?

You guys seem fucked up enough to actually go hang with for a bit.

*chuckle*

Don't know any 35-45-ish smart women with overgrown libidos that enjoy a playful ass smacking and rogering? *chuckle*
