Everybody at work seems to have the sniffles or some stage of a cold. I don't and I don't want to get it. They also hired a new guy that sits two cubes away and he should really get on some type of medication, it's obvious that he is an allergy sufferer. He can't breath via his nose at all, so he is a mouth breather because of it. Instead of blowing his nose, I hear constant sniffling all day long. I asked him once about taking medicine for his nose and he stated he tried it once, but when he stopped taking the medicine his nose problems came back. Well, DUH! Of course it will. I take 5 medicines daily for my asthma and allergies, but then you can die from an asthma attack and I never heard of anyone dying from the sniffles. The noise is annoying.



I can't help it, but if it's a Toshiba or a Tadrian or a Mitel phone I will know the part number with one glance (and maybe if it's an Avaya or the old AT&T phones). It's call occupational hazard. I was watching ER and they use the Mitel phones, but the show didn't start out using them. And just by watching the commercial for When a Stranger Calls I know that the phone system used in the house is a Mitel ICP (either 200 or 3300), because the phone she answers the call on is a 5200 series. When in the check out at varies stores if I just glance at the phone I get general information as to the phone system they use and what type. Too much crap in my head, but I'm not the only one. Others who I work with do the exact same thing and we talk about it. For us when we see the phones that we sell in movies or on a TV show it's almost like free advertising.

But don't ask me to program the speed dials on your cordless phone that you bought for you house like I'm suppose to know how without reading the instructions, just because I work on business communications does not mean I know home phones. When I get home in the evening I don't even look at a phone, much less answer one. The minute I walk out of the office I totally become technically inept and I like it that way.

P.S. Avaya = apply vaseline around your anus.

Happy Fat Tuesday

New Orleans

I am so happy that they still celebrated Mardi Gras in New Orleans! It is so much fun!

Thursday Thoughts

Growing old sucks and I hate this month. The weather is so gray and gloomy. I'm feeling a bit down and a co-worker just informed me that he got laid this morning - great rub it in why don't ya. Ass. I'm living like a nun and you just had to get that jab in, didn't you?
I'm not celibate by choice it's just the way things have been going lately. On the bright side, I do get to leave work early tomorrow at about 1pm, I won't know what to do with myself. I never get to leave work early - it must be a miracle.

I've been feeling like a young chick trapped in an old woman's body.

Total Eclipse of the Heart

Hurra Torpedo

This still cracks me up (I'm not on crack). I use to hate this song, but now I like it because of these folks.

Expressionism Baby!

The Fox

Of course I took Art History in college and loved it, but that's not where I'm going with this. In an Art Design course one of our projects was to pick a painting and attempt to duplicate it exactly - especially color. I picked the above. We also had to get the professor to approve our selected art that we were going copy before starting. Well, he didn't approve mine. He stated that it would be too complicated and to find something else (it was a first year course). I didn't. I fell in love with this piece of work and the artist, Franz Marc. It took weeks for me to finish - weeks! I carefully copied the design via a technique I had learned in high school and carefully combined the colors to get it right (he had us using acrylic paint). I got a B+. It is now framed in front of my diploma, notice which I prize more.

To see more of Franz Marc's work.

two good things in one day!

Nessa taught me how! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

For The Love of Toast!


This is my very first bid and purchase on eBay. I'm so excited. I love this toaster. I had one that my son burnt out the coils with a wooden spoon 2 years ago. I was so devastated. My husband tried to get one on eBay for me at the time, but was bided out.

This toaster is the kind where the bread goes down automatically. I eat a lot of toast. My Mom has this kind of toaster and hers is over 50 years. I got mine in '87 and my sister has one too. She doesn't use hers much and for a minute there I thought she was going to give it to me. They don't sell this kind anymore and when they did it was selling for about 60 dollars. I was willing to bid up to $100 or more, but I didn't have to, I bid $60 and won the bid at $38. YESSSS!

To learn more about toasters try going to "The Toaster Museum Foundation".

I can't stop myself

You Are Apple Cider

Smooth and comforting. But downright nasty when cold.

I don't believe this one

You Were A Lion

You have a lethal combination of strength and energy.
You have strong family ties, and close friends are like family to you.

Porn Baby!

Your Porn Star Name Is...

Candy Coxx

You Animal !!!!

You Are Animal

A complete lunatic, you're operating on 100% animal instincts.
You thrive on uncontrolled energy, and you're downright scary.
But you sure can beat a good drum.
"Kill! Kill!"

dragon pin

1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000

People born in the Year of the Dragon are healthy, energetic, excitable, short-tempered, and stubborn. They are also honest, sensitive, brave, and they inspire confidence and trust. Dragon people are the most eccentric of any in the eastern zodiac. They neither borrow money nor make flowery speeches, but they tend to be soft-hearted which sometimes gives others an advantage over them. They are compatible with Rats, Snakes, Monkeys, and Roosters.

Andrea Yates

I'm sorry but I don't feel that she should be let out based on insanity. Of course she was insane!Only an insane woman would drown her five children by her own hand in a bathtub one at a time! Only a crazy woman would do that! But I just don't feel that she should be getting off. Mental hospital or jail for the rest of her life, but not to walk free. I also don't think it was all her. I think her husband had been planting the seed in her mind to do it. He forgave her instantly. Why? Would most father's who had just lost his five children do that? I don't think so. It was very odd when he found out he didn't cry much and forgave her right then and there publicly. No, I feel they both will be punished upon their death.

My feet hurt

my steve madden pumps

I've gotten lazy lately (or just don't care) and have been wearing to work everyday jeans and my chucks. I think when it gets cold I hate wearing skirts and dresses, afraid that I'd be even more cold. And if you haven't figured out - I HATE COLD!

Well, Monday all my jeans were dirty, so I wore a skirt and my black pumps. Yesterday my jeans were still in the washing machine, so I wore my new skirt and these pumps pictured (my favorite). Today my feet hurt and they are now snug back in my chucks. Thank goodness.

Some people wear high heels everyday, I can't even comprehend.



A client of mine's new puppy. He is just so cute!
