Home again Home again jiggity jig

It appears that the little monster inside my head is acting up again. He apparently takes great joy in using power tools to destroy the inner workings of what few brain pockets I have left. I think this morning he was using his jackhammer & some TNT. So I am at home today, trying to figure out how to function with said holes in my brain.

I forget what crap is on during the day - except for soaps. Now, I know a lot of people have issues with them, that they're "stupid" & "rot your brain" leers at Denny, but quite a few "major" actors have started out in soaps. Like Meg Ryan, Ryan Phillipe, Vanessa Marcel to name a few. But they're harmless fun. And I would GLADLY watch them over stupid reality crap any day.

Ok, I'm going to go back to try & stop the little monster from reeking any more havoc. Perhaps I should try & drown him in beer.....

Yup... they're taking over!

I don't think I stopped laughing for 5 minutes.

My new profession.... NOT

Hello again friends. Come on in & sit a spell while I relay the events of last evening.

So I get the weekly Onion newsletter, the local version for the Twin Cities, & in it there's a weekly "contest". You can become the "Non-Celebrity Bartender of the Week" at a local bar called "The Moose on Monroe". Now I've seen this every week, & finally I thought "Hey, this might be fun." So I submitted my name. Lo & behold, last week I got an email saying I'd been picked! Here's the blurb from this past week's newsletter:

Last night was the big night. Now, I'm not sure if you've been to The Moose, but well... ok, I won't mince words: It's pretty much a dive. But the staff was nice, & it was actually a good time. I didn't have too many people come, but the 4 of us (Den, Jennifer, Justin & Kory) managed to put a nice dent in our $100 bar tab. It helped that Den & Justin were drinking Fat Tire, which only comes in 22 oz bottles @ $8 each. My in-laws showed up too, which was nice. It was actually kinda fun.

The one thing that I took from this is a much greater appreciation of the folks that work behind the bar, & as servers. Jer, I gotta tell you that I have a completely new respect that you did that so long. And I only had to wait on my people, not ALL of the idiots in the bar! So my hat's off to you, my dear friend. Thank you for putting up with us dumbasses for way too long.

Work Sucks.

Why is it always Murphy's Law that you work hard, do the best you can, & you STILL manage to get shit on no matter what you do? I mean really... what's the point of even trying?

It's been a pretty crappy week so far. I step up, take on a lot more responsibility, & can't seem to catch a break. I work my butt off with the priorities I've been given, but it seems like I'm getting pulled in 6 different directions at once. Then when I do manage to keep all the plates spinning, someone comes by & knocks over the table. ::sigh::

I'm just glad I have Friday off, even if I do have to get up at 7:45am to go to the freakin' dentist to fix a filling that they can't seem to get right. At least I won't be going to work.

'Cause THAT would be torture.

It's Official...

The 9 years of Catholic edjumication has gone for naught...

You know the Bible 74%!

Wow! You are truly a student of the Bible! Some of the questions were difficult, but they didn't slow you down! You know the books, the characters, the events . . . Very impressive!

I still did better than I thought I would though.

I think that's the word for the day. I never really found footing today, couldn't quite seem to get into the flow of things. I guess I didn't sleep too well, & I sort of slept through my alarm. Then I had to go to the doc for my finger (don't even ask). So I didn't get to work until like 11:30. There goes the day. The upside was that I got some of my work done, but found out I have a crapload to do in the next 2 days, before I have to go to training at Fort Snelling (yeah, THE Fort Snelling. On Base. Through the guard gate. Ahhh, the benefits of working for a defense contractor!)

Is it wrong that I want to go on vacation again? Not that I care where... just someplace to relax & have people wait on me. Ok, maybe someplace warm. =)

Ahhh.... to dream a little dream.

A gift that keeps on giving

So I went out to happy hour with the co-workers tonight. Now we went to a bowling alley/bar, & we were going to bowl a couple games. Turns out I had to go pick up the Hubby from his own happy hour, so I had to cut the evening short. But my friend picked up some socks for me & another friend, who wore sandals but no socks today. And GUESS what was on said socks?!?

That's right...

M O N K E Y S!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They're coming.... mark my words. Aliens. I seen 'em.

Yeah, I'm a follower.... sue me

So I got 2 completely different results for my 2 pictures. Very funny:

Personally, I like the Reese Witherspoon & Helen Hunt comparisons... but that's just me being vain.

Cutting off your nose to spite your face

Happy Labor Day.... the "unofficial" end of Summer. Wow, where did summer go? Sadly, soon we'll be headed for snow & cold. I can't believe it. The older I get, the faster time seems to slip by. Yeah, I'm in kind of a "blah" mood - I guess that's what happens when your head fills with snot.

And now I'm watching a segment on ABC News about some crazy Canadian "artist" who plans on launching a giant banana into space. Great, now the Giant Alien Monkeys from planet X will be invading soon.

Yup... the medicine is wearing off. I need more.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled nonsense.
