Random thing that made you happy

#1 Post by fivestyle » 23 Feb 2004, 09:01

Bet you never thought I would be the one to start this topic huh?

anyway Friday I get this fortune cookie and my fortune was "You will be traveling and coming into a fortune".

Well I was kinda upset when I didn't win the $230,000,000.00 lottery but then later that night my wife and I took my sister and her fiance to the Charlestown Race Track to play the slot machines.

We agreed to only spend $20 each. I told my wife I wanted to play the dollar machines (shes usually stingy with the money so only lets me play the quarter machines) she starts to give me a hard time so we agree Ill only spend $5.

So I put my $5 in and spin the wheels....1st try nothing....2nd try nothing...3rd try nothing....4th try nothing and at this point my wife says "way to go you just blew a quarter of your money in 3 seconds" and hits me on the arm...

5th try...7....7....7 :arrow:

I ended up winning $80 on the last dollar and after playing the rest of my $15 I ended up with a total of $87. While my wife spent $30 (she spent 10 more than the agreed cause she was jealous) and lost $15. So I gave her $20 to put her back at even.

Funny conversation afterwards...I mention how I was excited cause now I could afford to buy school of rock when it comes out next week.

My wife says well my birthdays next week and now that you have money are you getting me anything?

So I say "umm...Yeah! Im getting you school of rock".
She says "school of rock I've never seen it how do you know I'll even like it"

So I say "oh ok then what do you want for your birthday?"
She Says "Nothing."
So I say "Awsome than Im getting School of Rock"

:lol: :lol:

Something that made me happy yesterday is quite hard to explain, so i'll just tell you what happened. I made my debut for Leigh academy yesterday which some (probably a lot) people I know don't think I deserve because I only play for Easts 2nd time and they play for the firsts and haven't been asked to play for the academy. Anyways in the game I only got to play the last 15 minutes but I wasn't bothered because it was my first game and all. After the game I saw some of the others and they started jiving me by saying "did you play? I think I blinked and missed it" and all laughing (the same forced laughter they always do when somebody says something half funny). Then I looked at them and thought:

Person A: Well at least I don't have to do a lot of botty-kissing to get friends.
Person B: I'm glad I don't just stand there and laugh at the same time as everyone else cos i've got nothing to say
Person C: I can't look at you any longer cos that ridiculous earring is putting me off
Person D: You're just jealous cos you think you're better than me but nobody wants to sign you and 2 clubs wanted me

I decided they weren't worth a response. So I just turned away and walked to my friends, smilingly knowingly that I won without trying.
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

I do love a good "internal dialogue" story :D

reminds me of the beloved TV show the "Wonder Years" :D
I would rather be having a burger and beers with my mates but I can't do that when I know I've got to dance!

Contrary to what most people would assume, knowing what they know about me, many small random things make me happy. Among them:

This: :banana:

and other things I'm sure I will think of later.

I know it's a little easy but when my son told me
:" I love you Daddy, I love you very much" ...
I smiled for three days. :D

(He's 2.5 years old, he didn't say it in english though... Do you think I
should sign him in a special school or something?)

And speaking of fortune cookies...

I once got one with a fortune that said:

You are never bitter, deceptive, or petty


After my family and I laughed so hard we expelled internal organs from our noses, I kept it in case I ever ran into the person it really belonged to.

Well, I could be planning something to teach for the next two days, but planning takes all of the fun out of the job.

You were the one who brought up fortune cookies. Though I could have pounced on the "internal dialogue" Fever Dog mentioned well above.

I awoke at eight (a rare event, since I usually sleep till noon). I went to breakfast. I ordered an omelette. It was the best omelette I've ever tasted. That sort of thing makes me happy, small and pointless as it may be.
