Friday, July 30, 2010


I've tried unsuccessfully to post through blogger for the last 30 mins and I am tired of fighting with it.
Thank goodness it's Friday... I just have to get through my mid-year performance review today. In light of recent events I am really hoping to remain silent, smile, and ride out the rest of the work week.

Conversation Hangover

Yesterday started bad and ended worst with me raising my voice to my boss. Not my finest moment. Today I have that yuck feeling. The did I really do that feeling. I can't wait for it to pass.

Thank goodness I am heading out of town next Thursday for my reunion. Obviously a break is needed. Even better Lolly returns home today after spending the summer with her dad. Soon work will seem less important and my perspective will be better centered. If I could only shake this yuck feeling.

Some Days

It's just one of those "I want to punch somebody in the face days". You know those days when you feel like if just one more thing irritates you, you are going to go all Michael Douglas in Falling Down . I am having one of those days.

In a case of I don't know if I should laugh or cry , today I've reviewed resumes of people with the following first names, and I promise I am not making this up...


so I guess I should just consider myself lucky and go on with my day. It could be worse I could be named Lasagna Fowler. Oh and thanks Mom, I'll stop complaining that I only got a three letter name.

edit 2:40pm - add Tangy to the above list, seriously.

Next Saturday

I will be running the Flamingo 5K. It's for a great cause but to be honest I was sold on the pink and green. So sold on the pink and green that I am ignoring the fact that I may have run this course on Thanksgiving a couple of years ago and found it less than flat!

Curosity Can Be A Good Thing

Yesterday Mister instructed me to go to his facebook page to get the funeral arrangements for a friend's mother so we could send flowers.

While in there, I ended up in his messages (don't judge).Now I don't condone snooping but if you do I hope your lucky enough to see something like this...

"...I married the love of my life..."

Don't tell Mister but that just bought him a whole lot of husband points. I think I'll be way less annoyed by him for awhile.

Record Time

In an attempt to broaden my horizons, I went to a near by farmer's market this past Saturday morning. I saw these...

Beautiful, no? ...Not if you saw them today. 3 days flat and their just about dead. Not sure what I did wrong...

Sad. I am not sure what I miss most, the beautiful flowers or my $10...

It's Friday. At work onFriday's I only like to look like I am busy. You know, ease into the weekend. As I was giving the appearance of busy-ness I stumbled across this site and created this

Go Keep Calm and create. Have fun!

Sleep with one eye open

I think Mister is starting to get concerned that my weekend TV watching is dominated by this channel and shows like True Crimes with Aphrodite Jones, Unusual Suspects, Dateline on ID, Deadly Women, and On The Case with Paula Zahn. I try to add a rerun of a chick flick from time to time to ease his mind.

100 Days Update

Less than 30 days left till my reunion.
Start: 130
Current: 125.5
Goal: 120

I am pretty happy with the results so far. It hasn't really been painful. I've had the occassional doughnut, beer, and chocolate.With a little over 3 weeks left, I'll probably really cut back on the "occassionals".

Vegas Baby

I know you can't judge somebody by their boob size. But when Rachel from Vegas referred to Andrew's yarmulke as a yom kippur I thought I would pee my pants.

You can't write this stuff - Britney " I lost my dignity on a slippery weiner"

This is going to be good. Are you watching?

Know what's worst than being home sick, going to work and then coming home sick. I was there just long enough for everyone to see what I wore. What a waste of a good outfit.

And what's up with being swamped at work. Days, weeks, months of being healthy and not enough work. But get sick and the flood gates open.

Somethings going around. My boss had a sick  house this weekend. I've marked him as a carrier (two small kids). They say it goes fast though. I hope so because it's the make you crabby want to cry like a little girl sick...I'll be back when I am feeling nicer. Stay healthy!

Like Mother, Like Daughter

I hope everyone had a happy and safe long holiday weekend. I ran, I ate, I painted, and I laid around.

This was my absolute favorite sight over the holiday. Oh how I wish I could get Lolly to love running. She doesn't. But I still have hope. We have lots of years ahead of us and I have lots of miles to go...

Questionable Sanity

I am planning on running the Peachtree Road Race on the 4th. My shins are telling me something different.

For the 3rd year in a row, I will stand in starting area and think "what the hell was I thinking?"...
