Subject: Re: Sorry I missed you! Received: Sat Jul 11 00:50:06 1998 From: "Travis A. Vowles" Hey! I have to work Mondays, so I can't meet u on the net anytime that day unless it is really early in the morning...(before 9 my time). I have Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursday off, so if you can find a time there, let me know! Just download IRC ont he computer u are on and we can chat away! :) Let's see...I have to make an appointment to go to see a counselor or something at school next week about my schedule for next semester...I think I told you about it...religion class taught by Satan (again) and the Music class from hell...I don't know if I'm going to make it at this religious-university! They seem to take it too seriously! Just look at the classes!!! Anyway, I need to fix those, plus I'm thinking out changing my major (join the crowd, I know...) to Public Relations or something along those lines, becasue that it what I am currently involved in and I enjoy it a lot. I would also like to arrange to have all my classes on MWF if that is at all possible, because that way I could either work on Tuesday and Thursdays if they could use me, or I would have a couple of days to myself...along with free time, which would be VERY nice...... Let's see...I've been excahnging e-mails with Lauren, which has been nice, because I've expected to be completely and totally cut off from here while she was in Guadalajara. So this is nice! :) Plus I found out that she is supposed to be in San Diego for a week in August with her family, so I will get to see her then! :) I just wrote her an e-mail today about a Mystery dinner thing I found out that they are having in early September at the Wild Animal Park. I think that will be a lot of fun if she want's to's $50 per person, but I think it would be a REALLY fun thing to do, plus I might be able to get an employee discount or something... Let's see...the schedule at work changed for next week...I'm still trying to decide if I like it better or not...Up points...I work with Laura on Monday, AnnMarie on Friday, and am breaks person on Sunday (day FLIES by...)...down side...I don't work with Jesse or Claudea any more, but I still ahve a day with Christy...which I'm still trying to decide whether or not I like...she's okay sometime, but other times I think she's a bitch or, I now have a day where Kym is breaks person and sometimes she just pisses me off!! I don't know if I told u this story or not...anyway...I was working in the booth and it was really busy, so Kym was doing line help...Anyway, she finished up and came inside and I was helping a customer and she started to tell me something...I don't remember what...anyway, I could hear the customer, so I turned to Kym and said something like "HOLD ON!" Only I said it really mean and stuff...Anyway, I finished with the customer and dealt with Kym's dilemna and later that day Krissy, who was the other person working in the booth that day, came up to me and said something like "Kym asked me if you were in a bad mood or something. I told her you seemed fine to me...what a bitch." Something to that effect...she COMPLETELY agreed with me...the customer comes, I just think Kym's on a power trip or something...anyway, Krissy's all "Louisa (Who left about a month or so ago...) would have been proud of you! Since she left, no one's smacked Kym back into her place!" So, at least I'm fitting in with most there. Krissy is one of my favorites, so are Elaine, Jesse, Claudea, Noah, LeeAnn, AnnMarie, and Laura... (Big department) The only one's that I'm not sure of or generally piss me off are Kym and Christy. Well...I guess that's really all I have to say...I really need to get to sleep! I have to fo to work tomorrow and I need to wake up in 5 hours!!! AAHHHHH!!!! I can't handle this lack of sleep thing!!! I'll TTYL! Travis (For a minute there I thought I was writing to Lauren, and almost signed Love...don't wanna give you the wrong impression here!!!!) hehehe!!! Subject: Fw: Litle Johnny and Sunday school Received: Sun Jul 12 23:12:25 1998 From: "Travis A. Vowles" Somehow this just seemed perfect for your mission... Travis Johnny was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday School. "Well, mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. Then he used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge and saved the Israelites." "Now, Johnny, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked. "Well, no, mom, but if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never believe it." A Sunday school teacher asked the children just before she dismissed them to go to church, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?" Little Johnny jumped up and yelled, "Because people are sleeping!" Subject: Fw: (no subject) Received: Sun Jul 12 23:13:11 1998 From: "Travis A. Vowles" Hey! This is one that LeeAnn at work sent to me, and I thought that you would get one hell of a kick out of it! It cracked me up!! Travis >~~~ Why I'm So Tired ~~~ For a couple years I've been blaming it on iron poor blood, lack of vitamins, exercise, dieting and a dozen other maladies. But now I found out the *real* reason; I'm tired because I'm overworked. Let me explain... * The population of the United Stated is 239 million. 106 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. * There are 83 million who are underage or still in school, and 30 people who are still working on their PhD's since the 50's, which leave 49.99997 million to do the work. * Four million, four hundred ninety nine thousand, nine hundred-seventy are in the Armed Forces, which leaves forty five and a half million to do the work. * Of this there are 29.4 million employed by the federal government. This leaves 18.5 million to do the work. Half that many work for State and City Governments, and leaving 1,400,000 to do the work. * Now, there are 895,798 people in prisons, so that leaves 504,202 to do the work. * There are 504,200 people being treated in hospitals, at doctor appointments, or on sick leave today. That leaves just two people to do the work. * You and me. And you're sitting there playing around on email.
