photos and captions

(pretty new guitar and downtown in the summer heat.)

(horrible pic of me, but funny. the handsome couple.)

(mysterious door at work, and mysterious....whoosit-whatsit on the wall.)

(caveman banner outside my office window, and they still sell lard!)

contest: if anyone can tell me what that whoosit-whatsit is on the wall outside my office door, i will give you something real cool.


(wow, that's nuts. and who's the lady behind him???)

spam rat bastards!!!!

well, all my goofy free internet crap is finally causing problems. i'm getting spammed. or, i am spamming others. i don't totally understand spam. i just know that on facebook, my profile sent messages to friends advertising the new iphone. huh??? and on myspace, glittergirl is sending bulletins to all 100+ of her friends advertising porn. wha?????
funny, i went to find a funny image for spam, and most images came up from other folks websites, also talking about electronic spam problems.

cracked blackberry pics

the view outside my window, keeping me from getting work done. i like to look at the clouds & big buildings.

here's me waiting for my ride to pick me up for lunch. i am crabby from the heat.

hhmmm..... i thought i had more to say, now, not so much. my brain is just fried. work is a 4 letter word!

stolen from mojito

this guy is a grade A idiot!

"Ten movies streaming across that, that Internet, and what happens to your own personal Internet? I just the other day got... an Internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday, I got it yesterday [Tuesday]. Why? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the Internet commercially. [...] They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand, those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material."

ok, go check out all the great blog updates by chris, my mom & erin o'brien. go to skullranch if you dare!

a purse full of meat

i want one of these for a pet.
in other news, my 1 week challenge is drawing to a close. i followed all the rules too! i walked the dogs even when it was super hot out. drank tons of water, no booze and avoided fast food.
fast food was the tough one to stay away from. i was at the grocery store yesterday and my blood sugar was plummeting. i would normally have gotten fast food on my way out, but instead i looked around and found an alternative. i saw candy and chips by the register as i waited and felt hungry, but i decided to skip the junk and make a mad dash for the snack aisle and a bag of beef jerky. no fat, high protein, and besides tons of salt, not bad for me. the girl at the register looked at me funny when i asked her to ring up the bag-o-jerky and crammed it into my purse. whatever, i'm on a health kick with a purse full of salted meat!!!
i did notice something over the last week: i am old, clumsy, and have a bad memory. i thought it was too many rum & diet cokes, but apparently i have a horrible memory naturally. i woke up today with a few bruises i couldn't explain, and it turns out i am just clumsy!
so now i have to decide what to do for my next set of "challenges".... definetly something involving exercize. yuk.

the girl who made lists now has a website for list-making. click here to read my lists! (i added a link to this on my peeps & homies list, at the bottom.) my new sister-in-law ginny introduced me to this. it's almost like she wants me to lose my job!!!!!

why do i love making lists? for me, it's a way to combat boredom or stress, and a way to organize my thoughts. i also have a bad memory and lists help me remember the boring crap i might forget (like when to take the trash out) or to remember the stuff i want to avoid (like the dentist.)

lists rule!

weekend wrap up....

the weekend was fun. i worked from home a little, we went to my mom's and jennette gave us our wedding gift. go over the art gallery to check it out.

i think jennette is the breakout "outsider artist" of the family!!!

scroll down on this old post to see jennette's famous pre-school pics.

also: click here to have a giggle. it's safe for work, as long as it's ok for you to giggle/snort at your desk.

ok, that's all i got!!!!!!!!

my sweet, insane sister....

the refrigerator as art gallery

i wonder if anyone else (without kids) uses their household appliances as an art gallery? we've got collages, photos, drawings, and all kinds of weird stuff. like a stan lee autographed photo that neither of us remembering ordering. we're running out of space on the fridge though, so i need to find new places to display the art.

mundane details and then video hijinx...

day 3 of no fast food or booze, and doing fine. (pizza and wings friday night didn't count as fast food, just so ya know.) working from home today, and avoiding the heat. of course baking a lasagna wasn't the best idea..... maybe i'll put on a wool sweater and make soup!
if this didn't drive me to drink, i don't know what will:

downtown, working pics, driving to work pics
