i was at work yesterday, and expecting a call from my doctor. i had my cell phone ringer on so i wouldn't miss the call. (if i put it on vibrate, it goes off when i get emails, so i had to have it on the ringer, but a quiet ring.)
around 3pm, my phone rang. it was a little kid asking for nicky. i said, "sorry, you've got the wrong number" and hung up.
the phone rang 2 seconds later. "i wanna talk to nicky!" the young voice said. i very patiently said, "sorry, i think you're dialing the wrong number. i'm jennifer. what number are you trying to call?"
"um....i wanna talk to nikki! gimme her number!!!!" the kid is now raising his voice. he sounds really young, like maybe 7 or 8.
"sorry dude, i don't know who nicky is. can you ask your mom or someone to help you dial the phone?"
i hear some mumbling and he hangs up. i turn off my ringer and watch 4 calls come in, one right after the other. the calls come up as "unknown" with caller ID blocked.
i leave work and when i get to my car, i see there's a voice mail. i worried i'd missed my doctor's phone call, so i play the message before i start my car.
here's the message i heard: "hi nicky, i mean jennifer. i wanna talk to that f*cking nicky. i'm trying to call that b*tch. mother f*cker. bitch. bitch."
do people still spank kids? because i want to find this kid and get him in so much trouble!
here's a better photo of the devastation:

it's got me thinking that for all my bitching & moaning about my job, maybe it's not so bad. at least i don't have to drink my own urine. that's something to be thankful for. let's hope the astronauts don't have to begin work on recycling any other bodily functions. (yeah, potty humor!)

when i got out of the shower this morning, after much procrastination, i found griffin in our bed. he was right under the covers on my side of the bed, and he just stared at me. i swear, he was saying, "don't go to work. it's gonna be bad...." when i got to work (right at 9am) the entire office was empty and the room pitch dark. i wondered if i had gotten confused and came to work on a sunday. folks are now trickling in, but apparently we all have a case of the GD mondays.

all doctor's offices are boring and slightly creepy....
work pics: the fancy lobby, the depressing room where i sit, my desk & my view. i have a window but it looks out into other windows, a sort of inner courtyard, so no sky or clouds.
we got a bunch of packages delivered, and griffin spent the door on the flattened boxes. he even brought his favorite slipper!
me with horrible pjs & bedhead, and the dogs on places they are not supposed to be.
deer!!!! yes, i'm still stalking the deer. one of the loves my car. the large buck has been staring me down lately, and i think he's going to attack me or my car soon. get the video cameras ready!
