To Do

It's been getting so warm out here. I think it was like 75 degrees today and by the end of the week I think I heard it's going to be in the 90's. Can you believe that?????? First week of April and it's hitting 90 degrees already? Sheesh!!

I'm sitting here making myself a list of things I need to do tomorrow. I'm totally not a list person because I will write the damn thing and then of course I'll never look at it again. So, lists are good for me to collect my thoughts and try to organize my tasks in my head, but as far as like checking off items and what not - not happening!

I opened my wallet yesterday and realized my license was missing in action. I seriously have no idea in the world where it could be. I don't remember when was the last time I saw it. I don't remember taking it out to use it for anything and I can't even really back track to find the damn thing because I'm clueless. I did c heck my jean pockets to make sure it wasn't in any of them and of course it wasn't. I really don't want to go to the DMV to get a new one but I can't be running around town without an i.d. for very long. You have to show it all the time - especially at the casinos.

I just looked it up on the NEVADA DMV website and of course you have to apply in person and they give you a paper license to use until they send the new on to you in the mail. Are they doing that for you guys now too???? I guess it cuts down on fraud and identity theft if they send it to your house.

So, adding DMV to my To Do list for tomorrow. FUN! I was planning on getting up early, but now I'm definitely doing it, that way I can get in out and QUICKLY!! I remember in Florida you could make an appointment with the DMV and you didn't have to wait in the lines at all. I wish we could do that here.

Also in Florida you can apply for food stamps online. Here, you have to go to the crowded, smelly, cramped welfare office and wait FOREVER and a day. I can't figure out why the hell every state doesn't switch to the nice automated method. WE are so backwards out here sometimes.

Well, that's it for me - gotta apply for jobs. Goodnight kids!

If most of the times that you use the license are at a casino, what were you wearing at the time that you last had to use it?
Did you check the laundry hamper?
Its supposed to be lost socks in the dryer, not licenses!
Did you get carded at a nightclub or a wine-tasting recently? Cash any checks recently?
Good luck avoiding that trip to the DMV.

Oh... and double check the wallet!! As well as the clothes you were wearing when you ran into that old acquaintance at the 7-11: that was a distraction that might have caused you to misplace your license if you had been showing it to use a credit card or something.

Carmen, they don't want to automate foodstamps because if it is automated then it will encourage more people to take advantage of it. Also, it would likely involve additional costs to buy, set up the new program, and train, and could also cost people their jobs.
