I know yelling isn't cool, but I had to get the point across. I was informed of this tragedy earlier this morning and decided it is something that must be shared. If you feel so inclined please share this with anyone and everyone. This is something that is important to me and I don't take too lightly. I felt compelled to share this with you. Please spread the word. Thank you. Enough of my whining...go read the article!

True Hue

you are ghostwhite

Your dominant hue is blue, making you a good friend who people love and trust. You're good in social situations and want to fit in. Just be careful not to compromise who you are to make them happy.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

I've Had An Epipha-tree

& it went something like this...
the more psychotic you make yourself sound the better the blog fodder. In reading some of my frequent bloggy haunts I noticed this. One person in particular talks about her self in the third person, tells stories about herself as a princess, and openly admits to having a debate between two of her multiple personalities. The reason this is so humorous and she's not in padded cell lock down is because she outwardly appears normal.

So today's lesson, share the real you behind the veneer whether that veneer is glossy, chipped or cheap formica.

Two For Two

You Are A Vampire

You have a real thirst for bliss, and you consider yourself a true hedonist.
And you're not afraid to walk alone in life, if it means getting what you truly crave.
You truly enjoy entrancing people. Not to mention the ensuing pleasures of the flesh.
Your tastes have been called decadent and bizarre. You usually give in to your temptations, no matter how primal

Your greatest power: Your flawless ability to seduce and charm

Your greatest weakness: Human flesh

You play well with: Werewolves

It had To happen Sometime...

With my new recent obsession, the upcoming holiday celebration, and the fact that that picture of me in my new boots was more than a little off putting...partly due to the exceeding whiteness of my skin....I just had to know. This is what I came up with.

You Could Definitely Be a Vampire

Immortality, staying pretty forever, not having to get a job... you could definitely eat some flesh for these things.
It's not that you're a murderer by nature. In fact, you're probably the furthest thing from it.
However, if you woke up a vampire, you'd certainly be able to adapt and enjoy your new lifestyle.
There might not be much better than living forever, even if it means giving up your normal life, but then again it's probably not that normal anyway.

What you would like best about being a vampire: Being with others who are just as ridiculously good looking as you are

What you would like least about being a vampire: No one could fully appreciate your sparkling personality

All I have to say is come and get me ;D

Killer Boots Man!

Yesterday evening I stopped off at the bullseye. I was making my usual meandering around the premises when I happened across these beauties...Imagine my surprise when they jumped right into my cart and said, "Look. There's no two ways about it you're taking me home." How could you resist something so confident? Look at that they even had some nice feet to go in them too! ;) I am now excited for it to be cold again. That is, if there actually is a temperature that occurs in the sandbox that qualifies as being "cold."
Look it's wonder woman! Only she's traded in those impractical bright shiny boots for more sensible boots that make the ever increasing need for a speedy wardrobe change that much quicker!I really love what they do for my ankles...Could I be more vain?

I've been chastised by Carrot. In order to make amends I offer two posts today. This one being the second...

Today one of my coworkers started accusing people of the most heinous faux pas. For example, he claimed another one of our coworkers loved to watch Knight Rider, and it was among her favorite shows. At which point another one chimed in with this little beauty...I piped up with some slick comments of my own, and then came under attack myself. Except I was accused of watching CHiPS. I remarked "ooh Eric Estrada, how on earth did you know?" With my background in razzing I can take just about as much as I can dish out. Some people don't know how to take a joke, and others know right where to take it.

This afternoon we had the monthly celebratory cake, oddly enough there are no October birthdays in our department. Instead the CFO comes in and just kind of went over the good news for the department. His last announcement was a huge complement to me. In the line up of superiority I'm on the fourth level. CFO being obviously the 1st. He said that this complement came from someone on the sales side of the company, and it was said in front of a lot of important people in the company. The sales manager said that I had brains, always thought of the customer, and had good creative ideas for problem solving. After the little meeting dispersed, I received this gem from one of my coworkers.

**J-'s Official Seal Of Approval**

I couldn't stop laughing and felt my face flush because I had laughed so loud that most if not all of my department heard me. Enjoy... I might have to remove this for sanity's sake. Just whose sanity though has yet to be determined.

Sorry I've Been Away...

I've been having an affair. I met this wonderful man, he makes me laugh, he made me cry, which consequently didn't really make him that wonderful, but I took him back anyway.

I had never heard of the town of Forks before two weeks ago. Since then I've been obsessed, but just a little. It took me a week to finish the first and there was no doubt about it. I was head over heels. I could tell b/c I was prone to fits of giddy squealing at the mere thought. I read the second one in two days; spending most of the first day crying my little girlie eyes out. But it was short lived, and now I am relatively happy again with the exception of the minor irritations here and there.

To be honest my interest was peeked by none other than these three women. I want to say thank you to all three of you. I don't think I've ever found a book or series for that matter that has sucked me in so completely that I feel emotionally tied to it. There may be one exception to that though ;)

It all began on a warm sandbox evening in October. I had been hearing quite a buzz about this. So I decided while at my local Wally world to pick it up. Oddly enough in so doing I ran into some friends of mine. Funny how that works out. I didn't have much of a chance to read it on that night, friends...geez. ;D

But you bet I did some heavy reading during my trek to and from Glitterfest 2007. My dear sister kept asking me, during the whole time of Glitterfest how much I had read. Obviously in that setting there was little to no progression, as I was surrounded by darling angels quite literally screaming for attention. :D

I could never ignore such demanding adorable kidlets. OK that's a lie I loved every squishy cuddly minute of it. They are all so very sweet and angelic...that is when they put their horns away. But I digress.

Point of story: I found a man. His name is Edward Cullen.

It's Called A Quip Not a Sloooope

OK People are definitely slow!

I received an email request, from a customer no less, that was for their statement dated 10/24/07. I'm seriously NOT KIDDING!

That's exactly what they asked for. I was a little bit flippant in my response when I sent the fax; which I'm sure will come back to bite me in the butt and humble me, but I sent them a copy of the current status of their account. On the cover page I wrote.

"I received your request for the statement dated 10/24/07; however, for obvious reasons, this is the best I could do.
Thank you."

Yeah I know it was rude...totally belongs here, but I laughed pretty hard about it. Not business professional, but very much me.

USPS Trivia

Sounds lame right? Well today at work I was handed this lovely little info packet about different street suffixes from the USPS. I thought yeah yeah yeah I've heard it all before...

Highway Hwy
Drive Dr
Boulevard Blvd (Not to be confused with BVDs..."I go everywhere in my BVDs")
Circle Cir
Street St
Trail Trl

But I never knew about these STREET SUFFIXES

Alley Aly (The suffix most commonly used by cats, dogs, thugs and speakeasies)
Annex Anx (This one is for the ambitious dictator types)
Arcade Arc (For those obsessed with Pac-Man)
Bayou Byu (No comment)
Bottom Btm (Talk about getting AROUND)
Divide Dv (Where Math majors live)
Forge Frg (For the miners, & smithys)
Forks Frks (I thought this was a town? Not only that but the abbr looks like it says freaks, is that considered irony or just a bizarre coincidence?)
Loaf Lf (This is where the bakers & lazy people live)
Oval Oval (For those who are too cool to live on a circle. Wow! what an original abbr.)
Overpass Opas (For that homeless guy you gave your cup holder change to. Bet you didn't know he had permanent residency there did you?)
Passage Psge (Who thinks up this stuff?)
Prairie Pr (Where the cows go home.)
Radial Radl (For the best tires in town!)
Ramp Ramp (As in off ramp or on ramp? Nice abbr.)
Stravenue Stra (For the ultra modern roads. Aren't these designed by Donatella?)
Trafficway Trfy (Hello Captain Obvious!)
Underpass Upas (For the drunks and vagrants)
Viaduct Via (Yes I live on a railroad bridge)

Hopefully you at least chuckled at some of these. Or maybe the monotony of work has finally warped my brain beyond compare. Meh laugh now, muse later.

A Little Light Reading For the Afternoon

The Top Ten

Now that that's passed... I was reading an article on people who take movies waaay too seriously, and happened to notice a link to the above. I thought it would be interesting to see who all has reached such "heights" of infamy. I knew of at least one person, but to be honest, had nary an idea as to anyone else. I quit watching that show way back when. I was perusing through the "catalog" and happened upon one particular individual.

It shocked me a little to learn that this person's last known residence was less than an hour away from where I currently reside...YIKES! Twitching, shuddering, flinching, and one spastic tick later I realized, "Oh hehe there's no way someone of said infamy would hang out in the vicinity of such a heinous (haha yes I said heinous) crime."

In conclusion: Pea Peepoll Peeple are stewpid stoopid

Brief Time Out

You Are Cameo

You are understanding and very empathetic.
You don't tend to have acquaintances. Everyone is your friend.
And all of your friends tend to be friends. You have a knack for bringing very different people together.

You Should Rule Saturn

Saturn is a mysterious planet that can rarely be seen with the naked eye.

You are perfect to rule Saturn because like its rings, you don't always follow the rules of nature.
And like Saturn, to really be able to understand you, someone delve beyond your appearance.

You are not an easy person to befriend. However, once you enter a friendship, you'll be a friend for life.
You think slowly but deeply. You only gain great understanding after a situation has past.

Um yes

Tasty Tasty

Ohh someone is SO mean! For the past two days I have been getting wafts of this delicious scent. That to me at this time of year is magnificent! So now I have a craving for a bag of these.
Sugar smells, soo good.

All I Want for Christmas

Is my two front teeth..well not quite but almost. Unfortunately one of my burdens to bare in this life is my mouth. I'm not saying I'm so quick witted that I spout off retorts without thinking leaving every one in stitches, although that has happened a time or twenty. My dental record is, in length, akin to an unabridged Charles Dickens novel. Yes some of it is my fault although a large part of it has stemmed from other things that cannot be helped. Physical defects of inherited genetics. I'm not blaming b/c I love my family. :D

But on with the list.

I am a spoiled rotten brat an extremely blessed individual. I could not think of anywhere else to post put this thing, without it getting lost, so it's going up here. Christmas, although a few months off, is around the corner. I feel that there is nothing I truly need for Christmas, however this does not stop the inevitable question bound to come sooner or later. "What do you want for Christmas?" Instead of the all to frequent dumbfounded "I don't know" response, here are a couple things that I want but would not necessarily purchase for myself. Although for your entertainment, and so there will be no confusion, I will include some pictures.


Front tooth (ok maybe this one is a joke ;D)
The Julie Andrews Collection:
The Sound of Music

Thoroughly Modern Millie

Mary Poppins
& Before I forget some of these,
Actually that might be the closest thing to a "need" I have. As a matter of fact, this is my "Red Rider BB-Gun with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time" Hopefully it will look better than this on me...

Oh yes and of course a few good holiday treats that only mom makes "right."

Vinegar & Vim

Recently I find myself out of "bloggy" gas. I seem to have lost that spark that drives wild rantings about food and crazy people I encounter. I have lost the flickering flame and can't find the lighter.

With that in mind I think I'm gonna go tank up ;)

In the mean time I leave you with this one....

Do the Dew

This is humble homage to EWB & the love of Mountain Dew, sorry no nacho cheese here.

I'm Blue, but not like Eiffel 65 (Da Ba Dee)

What Your Favorite Color Blue Says About You:

Emotional --- Affected --- Sensitive
Peaceful --- Tranquil --- Connected
Spiritual --- Experimental --- Deep

Ethnic Food

OK so not trying to be pc, just couldn't think of a better title, forgive the lameness. In any event, I went to a hole in the wall Mexican restaurant here in the sandbox; and I have to say that it is probably one of the favorite places I have been thus far. The other day a co-worker and I had ventured out to said locale for lunch I noticed this for the first time

Anyone?... Anyone?... Bueller?... Bueller? Yes at the bottom of the sign it says or "bring your own pot" admittedly, I noticed that before anything else. Hmmm what are we advertising here? Good authentic soup? or special home grown south of the border-esque herbs? I wonder of Juan Valdez and his donkey have anything to do with it?

So wait what exactly is in that bag? Did anyone ever see Clear & Present Danger?

Sorry, couldn't help myself. Reminiscing about Mr. Ford pre-I wanna be a pirate accompanied by my wench with an eating disorder days. That last telling where that came from, just enjoy the view.
