Something Witty

I posted a comment on another site and said I made witty comments every now and then. But upon reading my previous posts, it's been a while. :) What's wrong with me? where has my humor gone? this lack of amusement in my life is not cool. I usually crack myself up *hehe* and others too...just sometimes I have to explain it to them. Do you ever have those days when everyone is speaking Stupid but you? C'mon, you know what I mean. When you talk to someone and they look at you with that DUH? expression. (the kind that dogs give you?) And you just want to say *in the voice of Chris tucker* Do you understand the words that are comin' out of my mouth? I hate those days. It's pointless to even try to explain yourself because they become more confused and you just get pissed off. It's like a bad episode of the Peanuts....WA WA WA WAH WAH WAH...did you understand that? good....cuz neither did i. oh... and it's only 25 minutes til quitin time...

I love music. I also love to dance, hence why I was a dancer *get your mind OUT of the gutter! :) * since I was 5. Ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop...although I was never into modern. I love all types of music, except classical. *that shite puts me to sleep!* I'm not sure I have a favorite song...*hahaha* it changes. Right now I would have to say Kenney Chesney's Song "old blue chair." Just something about that song makes ya feel good. The chorus is this:

I've read a lot of books, wrote a few songs
Looked at my life, where it's going where it's gone
I've seen the world through a bus windsheild
but nothin compares to the way that I see it
to the way that I see it, to the way that I see it
when I sit in that old blue chair.

My favorite verse is:
From that chair I've caught, a few fish and some rays
And I've watched boats sail, in and out of Cinnamon Bay
I let go of a lover, that took a piece of my heart,
Prayed many times for forgiveness and a brand new start

*sigh* good song...so what's your favorite? *don't be shy! i really want to know!*

it's thursday people. Friday is on the horizon. I just wish it would hurry up and get here already. of course, tomorrow will seem like the longest day in the world just because I'll wanna get out of work. It's supposed to be in the 80's tomorrow. It's going to be lovely....*sigh* and i'll be stuck in my office with NO windows. you heard me.... no windows. It sucks having no windows, so you only have the clock to judge time by and we know how slow Father Time can be. *hehehe* well, the stack of work on my desk is getting smaller.

Shows what I know doesn't it. I changed the style of my blog and it took the comments and the counter away. what the hell is up with that? I figured it would keep them. WRONG! so i had to put the damn counter and comments back in. *geez* what do I look like? I took a class about homepage design in college... about 6 years ago!!! I have to research that again. I think i still have the book at home... *scary isn't it?* I'm not really a pack rat, but I did think the design book would come in handy later on down the road. which technically is true.. *hahaha* I don't even know how to link to other sites. Pathetic isn't it? and I consider myself computer savvy. Not internet, obviously. *Sigh* oh well, I'll learn, one way or another.

Can't believe someone actually read my blog. *Thanks to Drama Queen* her questions are as follows:

If you were in a band, what would it be called?
well, I can't sing or play an instrument, but as a kid I thought that if I were in a band it would be called Pikture Purfect. Don't know why, just thought that was neat.

What's the best name you ever heard for a pet?
Umm...the best names I like for pets are Chaos and Sasha....

If you were to be stuck in a hosptial room for 6 months, who would you want your roommate to be (could be anyone living or dead)?
umm...I have to think about that one. I would have to say my Nana. She passed when I was only 7 months old. I would love to be able to spend time with her and hear stories about my mom and aunts when they were little.

I would link to Drama Queens site, but I haven't quite figured that one out yet. So go to the comments section and check out her site.

And work was cancelled. the bastards. I could've used that damn money! *grrrr* maybe something will pop up next week. I can only cross my fingers. *crossing toes too!* do you rememeber when you were a kid that your parents told you not to cross your eyes because they could get stuck like that if someone hit you upside the head while they were crossed? *grin* My cousin and his friends used to do that to each other to see if it would really work. *it didn't* but us girls didn't want to take the chance!!! my eyes feel like they're crossed now cuz I have new contacts and i have to get used to them.... well, peeps, take it easy Catch ya on the flip side Semper Fi

Yuppers...it's friday again and it's looking to be a beautiful weekend. of course, I'm working again this weekend. *sigh* oh well, money is money and I need some! *grin* D-Dawg.....I wish that you were home. It's beautiful weather here now. Pretty soon the pools will be open too. Guess what you're going to miss this May? the return of the 17 year cicada (sp?). you were only about 4 the last time they were here. I remember the damn things though. Had a boy in school put one of the damn things down my shirt. Screamed like the girl I am. Don't like bugs at all! *yuck* I'd rather play with snakes. I like snakes. Ball pythons. anywho....hope to hear from you soon! luv you...keep your head down baby!

If I had any readers, this would work, but I don't so I don't know why I'm even writing this. The first five (hahahaha) people to ask me 3 questions each will get responses on the web site...answered honestly. so...spider and mouse...ask away!

The simple things

I just read another blog and she reminded me of how to be happy. Just Happy. Remember when you were a kid and the simple things made you happy? a perfect summer day? your favorite song on the radio? your crush saying hi to you? a cool pool? a perfect game of hop-scotch? catch and kiss? If everyone just takes a few minutes a day to remind themselves how the simple things used to make them happy, everyone would be wearing a smile. Cuz believe it or not people, it is the simple things in life that make me happy.... I just have to remember that. Catch ya on the flip side Semper Fi

Man, I don't know what the hell was wrong with me yesterday. I was in such a mood. (worse than usual).. It started as a bad day at work. *sigh* then just spiraled out of control. I am still feeling the residual effects....today might end up the same way. I'm going to try not too, but that'll be hard. too many people pulling me in too many directions at once. *ggrrr* I'm only one person people!!! let me get some of this friggin work done that everybody and their mother has decided to stop in a pile on my desk. *sigh* if i ever say I'm bored at work again, will someone shoot me???

Daytona you say? YES! as a matter of fact, I have 70 days and coutin'. I'll be in Daytona for the 4th of July! woohoo! My friend and I are going for the Pepsi 400. *and if you don't know what that is, what rock are you living under?* Yes, I'm a Jr. fan.

I do believe we've jumped straight from winter to summer. It was in the 30's and 40's last week, now it's almost 90 today. It reached 92 yesterday. AARRGGHH!! what happened to spring? I love spring. The nice cool breezes. *sigh* I hope the temps drop to about the high 70's. At least until the end of May. Is that too much to ask? Mother Nature, hook a sister up... PLEASE???

On a happier note, D-Dawg emailed my uncle. he is okay and busy. Obviously since he doesn't have time to email anyone. :) Plus he would have read this damn blog by now! and left a comment or two to let me know he stopped by...**yoohoo...D-Dawg are you there?**keep your head down cuz and come home safe...luv ya

Long Day

Ever have one of those days that just seem to drag by? *wait, that's everyday!*smacking forehead* It seems like every Friday it takes forever for 4 o'clock to get here. *ggggrrr* I want to be able to fold me arms, blink and nod my head *see I dream of Jeannie* and have it be 4 o'clock. Of course if I could do that, I'd blink the damn winning Mega Millions ticket in my hand. *grin* I'd also blink all the slow a@@ drivers out of existence when they get in the fast lane and go BELOW the speed limit. Come on people!!! some of us have places to go!!!! SO MOVE! *breath in, breath out* okay....sorry....I really can't stand bad drivers. Of course, I am an awesome driver :) *just don't ask my family about that!* I could drive for NASCAR. *vroom vroom* :) In case your wondering.....(of course you might not be) I'm from Baltimore...let me welcome you properly...WELCOME TO BALTIMORE HON! ; ) things to watch out for when visiting:

First, you must learn to pronounce the city name. It's Bawl-a-mer or Ball-tee-more, depending on whether you live north or south of route 40.

Next, if your road map is more than a few weeks old, throw it out and buy a new one. If you are travelling near Howeard County and your map is a day old, then it is already obsolete.

Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Baltimore has it's own version of traffic rules..."Hold on and pray!." There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in Baltimore, we all drive like that.

All directions start with "the beltway," which has no beginning and no end. The morning rush hour is from 6am-11am. the evening rush hour is 1pm-7pm. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning.

All unexplained sights are explained by the phrase "oh, we're in Glim Burnie!"

If someone has their turn signal on, it is probably a factory defect. If someone is actually using their turn signal, they feel that is an automatic okay to change lanes. even if it means cutting you off.

Car horns are actually "road rage" indicators. Waiting more than 2 seconds after the light has turned green to go is considered an offense, which may be punishable by the person behind you honking their horn or actually getting out of the care to tell you where your gas pedal is.

All old ladies with blue hair in Buicks or Crown vics have the right of way. PERIOD. The same can be said for MTA buses.

The minimum acceptable speed on the beltway is 85. Anything less is considered downright sissy. The beltway is our daily version of NASCAR.

If it's 10 degress it's opening day at Oriole Park. If it's 110 degrees, it's opening day at Raven's Stadium. If the humidty 98+ and the temperature 98+, it's May, June, July, August and September.

Sorry this was a long post...just felt the need. *sigh* i'll probably post again before I leave work. it's almost the weekend!! YAHOO

Getting Started....*whew*

okay... it seems like I've fixed the damn time and I've added a comment section. Movin' up in the world huh? *hehehe*

well, today is Good Friday. You would think that since I work in a Catholic Hospital that we would have off today. Well, wouldn't you? not here. *sigh* so I'm stuck all day....I might be able to sneak out early, but that depends on the boss lady.

I heard from my cuz last week. It was only a couple lines, but it was enough. He said he was workin' hard. Well, i wish he were home right about now. but I believe he's not coming home for another couple months. *sigh* Just gotta keep praying....and hope he keeps his head down.

Anything going on this weekend? Besides Easter....ugghh...i really think that Easter is one of my least favorite holidays. Only cause of the kids that are running around whacked out on too many chocolate bunnies hunting (and fighting) over eggs. Who thought of this one huh? that's all i want to know. Actually it was probably someone who doesn't have kids getting back at the parents!! *hahaha* that'll have to be a post for another time...

did you hear that? :( unfortunately, I did. It's work calling...quick, someone tell it i'm not home!!!
