Disclaimers Galore...

So here I am…in body and spirit.I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been around and you’re probably saying to yourself “who cares”.Well, I’m back to entertain (or not)…at least for today. I have lots of excuses as to where I’ve been, but the biggest issues in my life right now are the fact that during the day work has been hectic and in the evening I’ve been busy preparing for my Christmas jewelry show next weekend and since Santa hasn’t provided me with any sweatshop elves, I’ve been on my own. So, now that I done with the whining part, let’s get on with the cheesiness… I was busily working away on some stuff here at work and needed to do a little research on some “legal” disclaimers, when I happened upon this great time-wasting website (www.coolsig.com).Here are some of my favorite disclaimers…I wonder if anyone will notice when I imbed them within the fine print… Government Warning: We are corrupt and have sold out to corporate interest. Do not listen to our advice. My opinion is…

I detest winter so much that I daydream that the Canadian government would realize how terrible of a Canadian I actually am, kick me out of the country, ban me for life from watching hockey and revoke my god-given right to wear a toque or a dickey for the rest of my life.
For those not familiar with Canadianisms a toque is a hat, which is most likely made of wool, knitted in a hideous pattern and colors and perhaps with a baseball size tassel adorning the top. These wonderful items are worn with pride, pulled down as far as possible, to cover your ears and most of your eyebrows, essentially hiding the identity of the wearer. In honesty, there is no pride in wearing this…

Ten Signs...

I realize it’s technically not winter yet, but I’m fed up already and I haven’t even seen a snowflake yet. With only one month remaining until I vacate this country for the sunny south, here’s my top 10 list which might indicate you also need a vacation to a sunny, warm destination… 1.“Wind chill” is suddenly the new catch phrase. 2.You go to work in the dark and you come home in the dark. 3.It’s the first day of November and you have appointment to have your snow tires put on. 4.It’s the first day of November and Christmas has thrown up all over the mall. 5.It’s the first day of November and Vegas bookies have started taking bets on when the first Christmas carol will be played on the radio. 6.You’ve become emotionally attached to flannel sheets and electric blankets. 7.The space heater under your desk hasn’t been turned off since September. 8.You’ve had to go on a scavenger hunt to find your ice scraper, winter boots, mittens and toque (let me know if I have to explain that one). 9.You…
