Blinkers: not just pretty flashing lights

I hate Utah drivers, they NEVER seem to signal. I'll admit that is a gross generalization, but it's still fairly accurate. In fact, today I was driving behind a cop...who came to a complete stop in the middle of the right lane and turned into a parking lot ALL WITHOUT SIGNALING. How can we expect others to signal, when we can't even get the cops to signal?

Lessons in "Dealing with Noel"

So, I went to lunch with a friend of mine today, and he told me "I know how to deal with you." He knows how to deal with me? ME? I nearly died laughing. I was telling my sister this story and she said, "not even your father knows how to "deal with you" and he has had way more practice." This is true. She then called my friend "slightly delusional" which he is. Most people don't know how to deal with me. My personality is generally overwhelming, and, I'll admit, manipulative. I'd say 9 times out of 10, I get my way...and when I don't get my way, I sulk and then move on...really, I do. I have come to terms with not always getting my way...oh, and eventually, I'll get it anyway. ;) Moral: I remember what I want and will eventually get it...if it really is important to me...that pony? Do not want anymore...therefore, not something worth wasting my time on getting...

The lesson is, that it's a fine art in learning the intricacies of dealing with me and my attitude...what works one time, won't work the next. It just made me smile to think that he knows how to "deal with me" when really? He's not even close to knowing how to deal with me...oh well, not everyone can...

Yes, I realize this was a little ego-centric...but it's my blog!
