Greetings fellow bloggers, my name is Lisa and I felt the need to take the plunge and start to write. So far it has been a wonderful, co-pay free source of therapy for me and hopefully for some of you as well.  Enjoy the ride!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading your posts as I am confident they will continue to make me laugh 🙂

    1. You are welcome! I love your Blog and know exactly how you felt about that salad..it’s so personal.

  2. Fun blog. I couldn’t find the subscribe button. If you don’t have one, you should!

    1. How do you do that and why is it a good thing? I am very new to the Blog world.

      1. It’s a good thing because it allows people to sign up to get an email each time you post. That way you will get a group of dedicated readers. Otherwise, people have to remember to check your site for new posts. (You signed up to follow my blog.) To set up you go to your site stats, appearance, widgets and drag the “follow blog” widget over to the right side where the actives ones are. You can change the words if you want. You would do that the same way you did for archives, recent posts, etc. which already have. If you have questions contact me at kcrimmins@rcn.com. Good luck.

      2. Thank you…mission accomplished.

  16. […] Last night when I was at our local Dollar Store I found myself standing in a very long line. Now, I’m not a complainer and I don’t mind waiting my turn. However, there was only one person at the register. The other “worker” walked by us all and shouted “I HAVE 5 MINUTES LEFT ON MY BREAK.” I was thinking “ok, who fucking cares whatever” Now the line is getting even longer, the poor sap on the register was acting like employee of the year trudging along when all of a sudden the other “worker” walks past again to announce “I HAVE 3 MINUTES LEFT I’M GONNA GO SMOKE” I was thinking “Seriously?” Now, my question is, as a customer (who is suppose to always be right) what would be an appropriate reaction to the blatant behavior of this “worker?” Signed, Disgruntled for a Dollar […]

  17. Tops,

    I’ve “hit” you for a blogging “Tag you must answer all my questions” game (http://fiftyfourandahalf.com/2013/02/17/beats-the-alternative/). You may answer or not, play or not. I won’t judge you.
