Odds and Ends

Lost was soooo good last night. Dad? *shivers*

Another log truck rolled over on the highway yesterday. No idea why because the road conditions were good and it happened on a straight, flat stretch. Could have been a moose playing chicken. It happened on a very uninhabited stretch and what made me laugh was seeing the undercarriage of the entire truck and trailer draped with caution tape. I guess that's for the moose so they didn't run into it during the night.

A secretary where my sister works was fired for snorting Sweet and Low at work. She thought it was Diet Coke.

There's a commercial on the radio every morning about a DJ at a local bar. The announcer says to "come to the Zoo and party with DJ Jeff only like he can. It drives me crazy.

The new girl that I work with came into my office yesterday and was looking for something to do. I couldn't think of anything that she could do without her ended up in my office for the morning and I really didn't want that. I ended up getting her to rearrange a filing cabinet that was on the other side of my desk. That way I could still surf occasionally without her seeing my monitor. *grin* She spent a couple hours working on this and during the entire time, she TALKED TO HERSELF!!! I was ready to bitchslap her by the time she was done. It wasn't just a sentence here and there, it was non-stop chatter! I won't be giving her any more work to do in my office, that's for sure.

Tonight is my hair appointment. I always end up waiting too long before making an appointment and the last week before the haircut I'm counting down the days every morning while I try to do something with my mop. I'm anxious to see if Shelly tells me how nice my hair looks when I get there tonight. Cause if she does? She's full of shit. *grin*

Hope your hair comes out nice tonight. Get rid of that chic so you can surf.

There is nothing wrong with people who talk to themselves. *evil eye*

Lost was most excellent *shiver*

I always get nervous when I see a log truck. We have them around here every so often. It always reminds me of the movie Final Destination 2 *shiver*

Snorting sweet 'n low? Seriously? *shudder* LOL at the Diet Coke comment :-)

I think I might go batty if I worked with your coworker. No offense Carey *grin*

Wish I could get my hair re-cut *sigh*

I can cut your hair for you, Nookie. *grin*
Don't ask Michelle to do it though. You should see what she just did to our poor cat. Ask her about it tomorrow. Seriously.

LOL @ the work girl! Next time send her outside to shovel the snow.

I just got my hair cut! I love it! Nutzgirl is in Cosmetology skewl and she now has her permit from the state! She'll get her license in the spring. She was afraid to do mine because it has layers, but she did great! She just needed her confidence!

Sooooooooooo gellus that NutzGirl can cut Nutzy's hair. Nice job Nutzy. Now you just need NutzBoy to become a mechanic or a lawyer LOL.

Carey, I will laugh over that with Michelle because I did the same thing to my cat Sammy LOL.

What? Did she shave it? *grin*

I have way too much work to do today. *pout*

If I don't get a chance before all you wedding goers leave, please travel safe, have a blast and have a drink for me, k?

She only partially shaved her. Not to be rude but she looks like a cancer victim. She has patches of bald spots and still has patches of dreadlocks. She is horribly disfigured in the fur area. Horrible. And she used to be a beautiful cat.

LOL Nookie! It came just at the right time! My favorite hairstylist at my salon left to teach at a local beauty school! I was desperate! I haven't had a haircut since August! Ack!

Nutzboy wants to be a veterinarian, so I expect I'll become an old lady with a house full of cats & dogs! *wink*

The mechanic? well, that's covered by Mr. Nutz. It doesn't matter though, you know, I'm always last on the list for car repairs! The Lawyer? that's BIL, he's an arrogant butthead though.

Lights makes moose jokes. This makes me happy.

And Nutz, I'm confused about the 'become an old woman' part of your message.

Lights, I need to know something large you would like blown up. It's for your sig. Send me a PM.

Oh Coco! Was it not gramatically correct or something?

I know I will become an old lady, but I suspect that I will become one of those that has 27 cats and 32 dogs because Nutzboy will have me adopting them all! Maybe I will even eat cat food because I'd rather go without than let my cats starve?

No, it's cause I already thought you were an old lady.

*ducks and runs*

I don't watch Lost.

I don't like trucks of any kind. They make me so nervous. I have been brought to tears on the interstate before because of trucks and jersey walls, and especially the combination of both.

I am about to hire an assistant. She will work 20 hours per week. What I really need is another me. But since I can't have that, I really need for her to just answer the phones and be able to answer the questions. This is supposed to help me, but I don't have a good feeling about it: (1) because I really don't have the time to hire and train someone, and (2) because I really don't know that I want another woman in my office. I really am the princess there.

I am growing my hair out, and right now it's in a crappy (<------- I was going to use another word, but I'm not sure if that's allowed here.) stage. So now I'm counting down to December 20th.

Sorry about disappearing on you all. Mean Jean struck again on Friday and then we had two parties this weekend so I didn't end up having any computer time.

My hair looks mahvelous, even if I do say so myself. I was a little worried that I'd got her to cut it too short but I was quite happy with it when I did it Friday morning.

LOL! Carey, I talk to myself once in a while too, but this was nonfrigginstop for two hours!

Nutzy, I feel your pain about being the last on the list for car repairs. Dave isn't a mechanic by trade, but he is a whiz with vehicles and he doesn't know how to say no to anyone, so I often have to wait in line.

Moose walks into a bar, bartender says, "Why the long face?" *waves @ Coco*

Bob, about the only thing I'd really like blown up at this point is Mean Jean but I don't think I should use that for a sig. I'll try to come up with something and PM you.

Boo? Can I send you my resume? *grin*

I think you should blow up an elf. I've always wanted to do that.

You know, off an elf. It has a nice ring to it.

Could I call said elf "MJ"? Cause that could stand for Michael Jackson or Mean Jean. *grin*

Blogger Swami said...

Sorry, you can't call the elf MJ. Those are the initials for my first and middle names. I might think you don't luv me anymore!

Do you have that elf-bowling game on your 'puter? If I can figure out how I will send it to you. Somebody sent it to me a few years ago so it is an old & primitive game, but I just love knocking down those sassy elves.

Well scratch that idea then! I can't be blowing up my Swami! I might as well blow up my lottery ticket though. *giggle*

Elf bowling. Sounds like fun.
