Sonic and Other Sirius Subjects

So I went all the way across town tonight (an hour away) to pick up my car title for my old soon to be sold car. On the way home I stopped at a Sonic and ordered my usual Route 44 diet coke with regular cherry syrup drink. J always teases me about it for two reasons. 1) She can't understand why I would order a diet drink with a sugary syrup. Answer: the diet syrup gives me a headache. 2) She thinks I pronounce "syrup" wrong. I pronounce it with a short i sound; she pronounces it with an er sound. How do you guys pronounce it?

Anyway, there were days when I would order this particular drink every single day; we lived by a Sonic. Since we have moved into town, I get it about once or twice a week. I had not been to this Sonic location in about a year or so. Imagine my surprise when the Sonic worker came out with my cup in her hand and announced "It's on me. You're here everyday so you don't need to pay tonight." Hmmm. I didn't tell her the truth. Nice to know that there is some other soul out there who drinks the same drink I do. I bet SHE/HE doesn't get teased for it! So I got a free drink. It's just as well - it wasn't that great.

I have spent the day talking to angry and/or incompetent people. I am so ready to find a new job.

My daughter did great in The Sound of Music! One of my best friends whom I lost when I left came up and hugged me at intermission. You could have knocked me over with a feather. And the next day she actually friended me on Facebook!

I am really seriously thinking about changing my last name soon. I am that ready. J and I have to sit down and discuss the repercussions, and there will be many. Have any of you (other than Jessie) changed your last name to match your husbian's?

I have started listening to OutQ 109 on Sirius radio. Still not sure what I think about it. Some of the talk shows are good. Sometimes I have to change the channel, though. TMI for me. I really like Rosie's show and didn't think I would. So far she hasn't been obnoxious at all.

"sir up" and, just fyi, my daughter loves Sonic!

I have not changed my name to my partner's, and she hasn't changed hers either. Sometimes we use a mash up of both of ours but mostly we maintain our separateness in that area.

Congrats to your daughter!

I'll be honest with you. I am so annoyed with the Sonic commercials on TV. Simply because we don't have a Sonic in the entire western state of WA, so WHY are they showing commercials for something that we don't have? They do that for a lot of stuff. Just irritating.

Your daughter must be proud! :)
