<p>Hello friends!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>SO glad <strong>Winter</strong> is back!  Woot woot!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I tried to read The art of racing in the rain and had to stop.  I was sobbing every other page.  Maybe some day I will be emotionally stable enough to try again <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title="">  (but in all fairness, i did start reading it the week my friend began chemo so timing was bad).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>What else?  Oh great kiddo pics last night, thanks for sharing RIL!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My super DH tackled the office yesterday because soon that will be little man's big boy room.  In a few short hours he got pretty much cleaned the whole thing out except for furniture that needs to be moved out.  What a great hubby!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ok that's all I got.  Oh...Moe...pukey or stinky?!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>Goon and her hubby headed to the hospital early this morning.  My Mom said they told them that she might even be home by 11:00.  We shall see, my sister doesn't deal with pain and recovery as well as she thinks she does. My Mom will keep me posted via text how things are going.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am staaaaaaarving and I want to run downstairs and get something to eat but I just got here and apparently one or two of my surrounding co-workers COMPLAINED about me running downstairs as soon as I got here because then it looked like I didn't start working until after my designated start time, and I'm supposed to wait a little while after I get here before I go get coffee or whatever.  WTF?  I have been glued to my desk working my ass off the past few weeks on this farking project, plus trying to keep up with my regular tasks.  I told my manager that I take the 10 minutes at the start of my day so that I'm not interrupting my flow of work, and whether I take 10 minutes at 8:00 or 9:00, it's still 10 minutes. My manager agreed, she knows how much I've been doing, and thinks that the complaint was really petty and actually hated to bring it up but it was <em>affecting morale</em>.  Again...WTF. My manager needs to get a spine.  Tell those petty slacker co-workers to MYOFB. grrr.  /rant</p>
<p> </p>
<p>OK, so that's the not fun.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun: Hot Tub Time Machine was pretty funny.  I lerrrrrrv John Cusack.</p>
<p>More Fun: I talked to my neighbor on the shuttle and she's planning a block party at the end of the month!  FUN!  And C said he'd check if he had to work because he'd like to come too.  FUN!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm actively seeking more fun today.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yay for smilies!!  </p>

<p>BigG that is insane!!!  Perhaps coworker should stop wasting time worrying about you and get her own damn stuff done!!! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Just had a 15min discussion with my boss about how disgustingly dirty the building we work in is.  I will chalk that up as not fun!  but seriously, it is insane.  I refuse to take the stairs, even if I am only going 1 floor because the stair well is a breeding ground for all sorts of bugs.  The stairs are literally covered in spider webs.  Blech!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Theia  yipee for vacation with the fam and Dave!!</p>

<p>Neither, tyvm. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" title="">  Can't say I'm disappointed that I have lunch plans with a friend so I didn't have to bring the leftovers to work. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>

<p>I had a morning of stupidity of my own making...but I finally made it to work.</p>

Dude.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So I am FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Long story short -- people suck.  Especially people with an agenda who think they can do my job better than I can and set me up by sending their little minions to MY meeting tonight with the ultimate intention (I'm sure) of joining the committee.  Total sabotage going on over here.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>MEANWHILE, I got an email last night from a friend... my most favoritest team in the whole world is hiring a publicist!!!  HELLO, dream job!!!!!!!!!!!!   But I just started this job in February, and other than the political bs I really do love it.  Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!! </p>

<p>Fun in an odd sort of way.  I slept for nearly 5 hours straight last night.  Went to bed around 9:40PM.  Woke up around midnight-ish.  Went back to sleep and it was after 5am before I woke up again, and then did the sleep/wakeup cycle another time or two before waking up for good around 6.  So THIS is what it is like (sort of) to be well-rested.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun;  <strong>Winterbabe's</strong> appearance on here.  It's about time, girlfriend!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun:  Tomorrow is payday.  It cannot come fast enough. Oiy!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BigG-</strong> If you co-worker was doing THEIR job in the AM, I doubt they'd be noticing your patterns to/from the coffee machine anyway.  Hmph.</p>

<p><strong>Theia-</strong>  always go for the dream job.  If you don't get it, then fine.  But the chance may never come again.  In your cover letter you can even say that you enjoy your current position but that this is your dream job, so that they know that you aren't just job hopping. </p>

Dude. Being a creative I've run into this kind of a lot. People would walk past/through our room and think we were screwing around, but we were really brainstorming or critiquing each other's work. Creatives having fun is where the really creative stuff comes from.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>People also complained about us dressing more casual. Um, if you would like to crawl around on the floor (because the work table isn't big enough) mocking up stuff for sales presentations and working with paint and spray adhesives and ruin all your nice work clothes, please, go ahead. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" title=""></p>

<p>I had an odd sort of wake up too.  My parents kitten was trying to stick her face up my left nosteral.  She was persistant too!  I couldn't get her to stop sticking her wet little whiskery nose up my nose!  She almost got a flying lesson this morning.  I think she's a certain kind of special. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>other than it being 8 billion degrees over here I've got nothing new.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>((((  Missy  ))))) </strong> hopefully you are having better days.  You and my SIL are both due on Saturday so I'm busy waiting for my phone to ring and an up date from you guys!  Good luck! <br>

We get this sometimes too.  I work with bacteria and biowaste.  If I have meetings, yeah, I will get a bit more dressed up.  But if I know I am going to be in the lab all day, up to my neck in bacteria and chemicals, then who cares what I am wearing?!  I used to work for a motor oil company blending the oils in a lab to test.  I woul dhave to pour componets from 50 gallon drums.  I ruined more clothes during that internship and learned my lesson!<br>

<p>Okay, the geeky side of me has just become a fan of new Raiders QB Jason Campbell.  This is apparently what he says in an interview about his time in Washington with the Redskins.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"(It) was like getting run over with a bulldozer shooting hydrofluoric acid balloons laced with deadly diseases and decomposing horse heads."</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Not too many people I know would use "hydroflouric acid" in relation to a sports experience <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
