April Fools Day Update...

Well... today was not quite as expected. First off... I had to go in to work at 5:30AM. I had a horrible stomach ache. It was awful!!! I was miserable. But a coworker gave me... *gag*... Rolaids... and it ended up helping after awhile. (I literally almost GAGGED when I chewed them--ICK!) Anyway, I had prepared some toothpaste filled Cookies the night before. Of course I used Fluoride-Free Toothpaste (its all I use) so as not to poison anyone who might actually SWALLOW the cookie. LOL! Then, Cathy brought in some donuts and we stuck a fake fly on one. We could NOT for the life of us get anyone to eat either treat!!! We tried to non-chalantly offer them, etc... and we pretty much ate the container of cookies (trying to make it look harmless).. .and we each ate a donut (after my stomach settled)... and left the other for Bill... but he was too smart. So... I took the pack of cookies up to the main office.. HEH HEH HEH... I'm sure I'll hear about it through the grapevine later. Honestly, though... they smelled like Thin Mints.. so I wouldn't be surprised if someone ate them not knowing the difference! LOL! Anywho. I also got a couple of Baby Ruth Candy bars to use as fake Pooh somewhere... but didn't have the energy to figure something out... so I ate one of them. haha. The main gag for today was this big box! We waited until after UPS came.. and then called Bill in to help me lift the box on a pallet since it was too heavy and big for me to handle myself. Cathy was, of course, IN the box with the top taped down slightly. We also had rigged up my camera inside of a small box (we cut a hole in it) and it was set on the table with other UPS packages to film the whole thing. Well.. Bill didn't buy it. He just kicked the box. BUT... a guy in the shop saw our plot.. and he also saw the VERY gullible janitor guys in the shop. He told Cathy to get back down in the box... and then he asked the two guys to come help him move the box. They fell RIGHT into it! LOL!!!! It was hilarious--and caught on video. However, I can't get the stinking things to load on YouTube. (Anyone have any advice? Maybe I'll try tinypic). Anyway... THEN we had Bill in on it and he went to get the Warehouse guy, John to help him move the box... it was so funny. I actually thought he was FAKING being surprised because of how freaked out he got. I thought NO WAY WAS HE SERIOUS! But later, I found out we really did scare him... and he said it took 5 years off his life. LOL... he was SO funny. If I could figure out how to make it Slow-Mo... oh my gosh.. it is hilarious. I will see what I can do to get these vids up as soon as I can. It would be a shame not to share them with you all!!!

Now... real quick before I go get ready for bed.. I wanted to share a Meme with you that my sis had on her blog. I'm not going to tag anyone because I'd end up tagging the same people anyway--so if you want to join in.. just let me know so I can check it out on your blog!!!

Five Random Things About ME: Devon*in no particular order*
1. I have a tattoo. Yup--that's right--since I was 19.
2. I do NOT like tags near my face. If I have a blanket... the tag HAS to be at my feet or it drives me bananas!!
3. I wear a smaller size shoe now than I did in highschool (and no... I didn't lose weight!)
4. I do not like needles. (go figure, I have a tattoo and my nose/ears pierced!)
5. I have HIGH cholesterol... 238... and I'm only 24!!

Ok--I'm off to bed... Happy Wednesday (tomorrow)!!!


  1. HEY there! You guys crack me UP! I can't wait to see the video. (If you find a way to get it posted) I have an account on HDDweb.com if you want to try and store it there. (Email me for the password if you want to try it)

    I'm sorry you weren't feeling well. HOPEFULLY you'll be feeling GREAT by tomorrow!


  2. Oh, I want to see that video. I think it's so hilarious that you guys do those kind of things. If only I could come up with something and be able to do it with a straight face. My face is an open book...don't lie well. Probably a good thing.

    I have low cholesterol...like, bad low. Weird.

  3. That is sooo funny! i can't wait to see the video!!!! :) And ewwww...cookies with TOOTHPASTE! GAG!!! that is soooo gross!!!!

    now wait a minute...how in the WORLD are your feet smaller than when you were in high school? that makes no sense!!! LOL

  4. I think I wear a size smaller in shoes since high school (wish it was clothes) and I have a tatoo since 20.

    So sorry you didn't feel good yesterday...I hope you are feeling better today. Can't wait to see the video when you get it up and running.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
