Day 02 - Flirtin' with the Trash Can

Day 02 of the 30 Days of Music challenge is your least favorite song.

This was a tough choice. There are a lot of songs I don't like - a lot of songs that I immediately change the radio station when they come on.  It's hard to pick just one, so I'm going with this one. I cannot stand this song.
Ugh. I'm not even able to check out the video. Blech.

30 Days of Music

I saw this thing going around on Facebook called the 30 Days of Music. I thought it looked like fun, but I didn't want to clog up my Facebook page with it, so I decided to clog up my blog instead. :) Lucky you.

So, here we are.  Day 1 of the 30 Days of Music is:

Day 01 - Your Favorite Song

This is my favorite song of all time. And my favorite guitarist. :) Enjoy.

Janet knows about the camel

A lady came into the vet clinic the other day. As she was leaving, we were all chit chatting and making small talk, when she suddenly said "Do ya'll have a camel here?"
The veterinarian, who was standing up front with us, responded "Yeah, we do. You wanna see it?"
She enthusiastically replied "Yes! She followed the doctor down the hall and said, "Janet was telling me about it at church!"
By now, my interest was definately piqued.

Why does Janet know about the camel and I don't?!
While something like a camel at your place of employment might be a little far-fetched or out of the ordinary, I never once questioned it at mine. Not that we see a whole lot of camels or anything like that, because we don't. We don't see exotic anything, but nothing surprises me at work anymore. This is the same boss that's had me scouring the internet for horse-drawn hearses. And the same one that had planned a "business trip" for me to drive to Texas to retrieve an armadillo that we would keep as an office pet. So a camel at the clinic? Uhhh, totally:
I anxiously waited at my desk for the lady to leave. Forget the clients, I wanted to see the camel!
Finally, after completing the "Roots" miniseries on my computer, the lady emerged from the back of the building and left. 
"Have a good day!" I called, already halfway down the hall. I practically ran through the hospital, flinging open the swinging doors. I declared loudly "I want to see the camel!"

Everyone just stopped and stared at me for a minute. Obviously, I had come in so fast, they hadn't heard me.  So, I said it again. "I want to see the camel!"

One of our technicians stopped filling the prescription she was working on."What? What camel? What are you talking about?"

I was all "That lady. She saw the camel. Now I want to see the camel! I didn't know we had a camel!" 

"No. No. That lady wanted to see the KENNEL."
