EEEEEEEEEEEEEP!  
Now, I've been a generally busy person recently who, for the most part, hasn't much gone on the computer. Mostly, I've been either doing housework or not succeeding at working for others or being with Dan.

Yesterday, I went to a bunch of places and applied to work. I went to Fill-a-Bagel and they look promising. It was like, 100° out so I kinda died a little. I stopped at Applebees for a glass of water. It was the best glass of water I've ever had in my life. Eric opened the door for me and suggested I go up to the bar. Dave, the bartender gave me a glass of water. Then this old guy sitting next to me told Dave and I this riddle:

"A woman walks into the bar and asks for a cup of water. The bartender reaches under the bar and pulls out a revolver. The woman says 'Thank You' and walks out of the bar."

He made us ask yes or no questions for about 15 minutes solid. It was great. I was stumped so I had him tell me the answer when I left the bar. I'll leave it up to you lovely readers to figure it out!

Then I went to FedEx/Kinkos and printed and finalized my flyer for my computer hardware cleaning service. I wrote out those annoying little tabs that you can pull off. Then we made a few copies. Color copies are 89¢ each. >_< Mum and I went around putting them up. I put one in Jenkintown Business Graphics, one at Acme one at the Jenkintown Library (the librarian really liked the idea), and one at the Abington Library. Mum and I went to the Ringel's for dinner because we haven't eaten dinner in a while (prob since Friday. Mom seems to cook best whenever Dan comes over. Can you blame me for bringing him over all the time?) so we had chicken. Thoug's chicken. Yum.

The best part was that before we went home we decided to try putting up my flyer in Starbucks. Good call!

This morning while I slept, some lady called, in response to the ad! Mom woke me up and I talked to the lady. Her name is Kate. She and her husband have a business in the city which has about 30 employees and about 45 computers! (I advertised at about $3 a keyboard, $2 per mouse) She asked me whether I did other things and I said I do monitors and towers as well. She asked me if I babysat. When I said I did, she said "Oh Em Eff Gee!" I like this woman already. A lot. She was so excited to talk to me and so excited to meet me. It was just an excellent way to start the day.

I'm really excited. I know that most people hate doing mundane things like cleaning mice and keyboards, but it really amuses me greatly and makes me feel good. And now I will have money for it.


Man oh man. I'm glad.


And, providing I find my debit card, I'm going to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at 3 am tonight/tomorrow morning with Dan.
Have I mentioned that I like this kid? He's such a beautiful illusion.

"A woman walks into the bar and asks for a cup of water. The bartender reaches under the bar and pulls out a revolver. The woman says 'Thank You' and walks out of the bar."

The only thing I can thing of is the revolver being a lazy Susan.

Other than that, I'm stumped...in a good way :)

I've been thinking about this for a while now & I can't seem to figure out the riddle. How about some help here?

Nice icon. Ask me yes or no questions! If you want a more immediate response, try me on AIM: jupiterdropsBe
It's really quite clever.
