i realized recently that i am experiencing classic SAD symptoms and light therapy is recommended. read an article that explains Seasonal Affective Disorder here. instead of taking anti-depressants, i am trying light therapy this year. i am sure working 6 day weeks in a dark office is making it worse. so we'll see if the "grow light" works! i just wish it came in pink......
and finally, someone is taking a poll on blogs and how they are used. click this link to take part in the study. i found the questions interesting and it got me to think about how i use this blog, my reasons for keeping up with it, and what i get out of it. a friend recently suggested a blog was no more then attention seeking, "written masturbation." i had to disagree. for me it's mainly a way to keep in touch with family and friends from all over the place, especially when i am working 50-60 hours a week. i also think i use my blog as a way to be creative and have fun. how many ways can i piss my mom off or annoy copaX? or how can i get people to join in the fun? the survey on "the best sanGwich" ended up having over 30 comments and much heated debate. it was fun!
and the blog is free. it's a waste of bandwith that i can occupy for no cost. except the time i waste at work blogging when i should be working. but that's my way to "stick it to the man!" yeah, i am a blogging revolutionary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

in looking at my online photos, i struck me how strange and amazing life is, that i ended up in the house, with this boy and these dogs... and a big red barn. a year ago i never would have guessed where i would find myself now. or how happy i would be!here's my favorite pic from inside the house. magical.......
and incase this has gotten too mushy, let's not forget i live with crabby choir guy!!!!! click here to relive the horror............

thursday night tv is good! well, i can't sit through "my name is earl". the blonde chick gets on my last nerve. but "the office" is awesome (i am watching right now and it's making me giggle and also feel very uncomfortable- the mark of good tv!) scrubs has jumped the shark (sadly) but "30 rock" kicks ass! please go watch it and make it popular and write letters so that it is not cancelled. well, that's a bit much. but give it a chance and check it out, if only for the "creepy NBC page" character.
i thought i had other stuff to say......
go watch this clip on youtube. it's the funniest thing i've seen in ages. for real.

subliminal recording device
patent#: US 6940432
i found this horrible patent online and can't even remember what i was searching for. the teddy bear can be "unnoticeably placed near a child's bed" where it can then impart prerecorded "affirmations, self-hypnotic suggestions, or subliminal instructions" while the child is in "the subconscious state of sleep." it's perfect for the busy-body parent who doesn't have the time for traditional brainwashing methods. i call him "sublima-bear" and he creeps me out!
