Ghosts Appear, then Fade Away

Sometime in the last year, we found this video on YouTube of Choir!Choir!Choir! performing Men At Work’s song “Overkill” accompanied by Colin Hay (the singer from Men at Work). (There is also a video of Choir!Choir!Choir! performing Never Gonna Give You Up with Rick Astley and if these videos do not make you want to… Continue reading Ghosts Appear, then Fade Away

This week

Hi all. So, here’s what is up with me in no particular order: 1) Saw my dermatologist last week, she’s advocating coal tar as this visit’s miracle cure for my psoriasis. Guess what smells terrible? Coal tar. On the bright side, it is working I think. I’ve got coal tar lotion, some kind of mystery… Continue reading This week

And here’s my day

(First Day in New Job! New Desk! Same Everything Else!) 1) Got to work early to catch up with stuff, prepare for back to back training sessions 2) Ran web meeting with client (which I’d totally forgotten about until I saw it in Outlook – “CALL CLIENT NOW!”) 3) Trained 1st client on new time… Continue reading And here’s my day

They say it’s my birthday…

Well, most people did anyway. Turned 36 yesterday. What the hell? (Here’s what I know: I’d better be in a place in my life where I can go someplace amazing to turn 40 at, to soften the blow. I’m not very good at getting older, the entire concept genuinely puzzles me. More about that later.)… Continue reading They say it’s my birthday…

Indiaaaaana, you old banana….

So! I just got back from my visit to Indianapolis. I cannot even put into words how wonderful it was. I hadn’t been home in so, so long. A ridiculously long time. How did I go nearly 2 years without seeing my family in Indiana? And it wasn’t enough time, even though I could have… Continue reading Indiaaaaana, you old banana….

Insane Thing I Said on Thursday

So, I believe I have said before that I say at least one crazy ass thing per day at work. Thursday, the Vatican elected the new Pope. My manager said the new Pope’s from Argentina. I stood up, waved my arms over my head and said “I’M THE NEW POPE-A!” I may or may not… Continue reading Insane Thing I Said on Thursday

Do Payroll

(This is one of the reasons why I don’t write here as often anymore…almost my only topic of conversation is work. Good days at work, bad days at work, promotions, hating my job, loving my job, the devil known as year-end, etc. Boooooring). Anyway, today was a crappy day. Really, the last week has been… Continue reading Do Payroll

Let’s All Go to the Movies

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since Gene and I attended AMC’s Best Picture Showcase. I think this is the fourth year that we’ve attended. Midway through the second Saturday of the showcase, I realized that nine movies is a ridiculous number of Best Picture nominees and that the Academy should really stop… Continue reading Let’s All Go to the Movies

Okay, so lately

So, here’s what’s new 1) In Indiana 3/15-3/20. YAY. No special plans, just spending time with my family. (And yes, I’m also going to spend some time alone. I need some time alone.) 2) Mom and Dad visit 4/1-4/3. Waaaait. Is this an elaborate April Fools prank? Uh oh! No one’s coming to town are… Continue reading Okay, so lately

Blahhh!

This week has sucked. 1) Mehh! My coworker had a week plus a day off, forcing me to go rogue looking for help. 2) Grrrr. Client with a time clock problem and I’m useless to help (mostly due to issue #1 above). Have been avoiding his call for 2 days now, plus the prior 2… Continue reading Blahhh!
