Hah, finally made it!

So I read a lot of blogs and comment on a few of them. Many of them are so huge that they get hundreds if not THOUSANDS of comments which is great BUT has disadvantages. Sometimes people (whom we call trolls) decide that they have nothing better to do in life than get their panties in a wad and post hurtful negative comments about a writers blog of the day or even comment on their way of life in general. My opinion is: if you don't like it, click the "X" in the upper corner...thats what it was designed for.

So, I guess you could say I finally made it into that category of bloggers who get negative remarks! I posted a lighthearted comment on another (GINORMOUSLY followed) blog regarding which topic I thought the writer should get back to writing about. Another commenter apparently thought that was RUDE of me, clicked on my blog link and wrote her opinion (anonymously with no return email, of course) below one of my most recent (non related) posts. Needless to say, it got deleted... I don't have the time to deal with that kind of negativity or troll-ish-ness!

Anyway, enough of that and HAPPY FRIDAY. The hubs and I are going out for dinner tonight and I am MORE than excited!

best thing EVER!

do you like rootbeer floats? ya know, rootbeer with ice cream spooned on top that makes those delicious creamy bubbles at the top that take on a new consistency you never knew existed before...Mmmm! For me rootbeer floats were made famous by A&W but were especially made great while sitting around a camp fire roasting hotdogs (also consumed, Dr. Pepper floats). Well, while at the local Hy-Vee (grocery store chain up here) I spotted this strange looking BLUE milk in a glass jar, and then pink, yellow, peach, white and brown milk! What could this stuff BE!? Turns out it is flavored milk, I know what an idea! I don't remember what all the flavors are but the brown milk is NOT chocolate, its ROOTBEER flavored! Delicious! I think the other flavors are regular (white milk), peach, cookies and cream and cotton candy flavored!

Check out their website, seems like a wonderful small family owned business that would be wonderful to support!

Notes on Nebraska...

Random thing I saw today... Nebraskans seem to really like their custom license plates. I have never seen so many! Wierd one today -- X BANKR -- is it just me or that kind of boring to be broadcasting?
