Is it just me....

I have decided to join Hallie's parade and march along to the "Is it just me" beat. Why you ask? Because I figure joining will give me Hallie points for when I meet her in 2010 (that is gonna happen, right Hallie?) and, oh yeah, it is a fun idea.

Is it just me or do other people live in homes where putting the dog out means instant deafness for the rest of the family? So many times, the dog starts barking and nobody in the entire household 'cept me hears her bark to come in. Husband and Boy-o might be on the first floor and I am upstairs. They don't seem to hear Miss Katy's bark but it is loud and clear on the second floor. Strange but true.

Is it just me or do you also notice that the people who complain the most frequently and the loudest about the song on the radio are also the same people who are most likely to sing along?

Is it just me or do some people lose all of their common sense when they turn on their GPS? Did you see the article about the couple who was lost for three days because they alledgedly got lost from following the directions on their GPS? Hello, folks. Just because the GPS says something doesn't mean it is so. Perhaps going down a deserted dirt road might not be a good idea. Just sayin' When I use the GPS, I also take a back-up map and, usually, printed directions from MapQuest. Why you ask? Because we took a GPS on a trip once and it malfunctioned. It was a trip that we had taken several times and had directions from both AAA and MapQuest. The GPS kept insisting that we take exits when we knew that we needed to stay on the highway. Did we follow the GPS? No, we used our common sense and went the way that made sense. It was the same trip that declared that we were arriving at home in the middle of the higway in Massachusetts. We live 2 states and 3 hours away from there. Whoops.

That's it for me today. Don't forget to go over to see Hallie to see what other people are wondering in "Is it just me or...."

Here's to Hallie!


  1. YEAH!!! You joined!!! I'm so damn happy.

    You are hereby awarded 10,000 Wiener Points for your efforts. (and those are NOT easy to come by)

    The dog thing? AMEN.

    Hallie :)

  2. for the record.....GPS will get you to my house....but mapquest will make you drive over a cemetery.

  3. All of our pets (there are SEVEN) would be dead if not for me. And our house would be so full of pee and poo, we'd have to swim around. And? There are SIX humans living in my house!!
    Thank you for letting me get that out here! LOL
