Worst day EVER. Everyone is stupid everywhere. And mean. I even had an old crusty cop yelling at me for only driving 60 in the left lane. The speed limit is 55, fucker. He didn't give me a ticket, but he was YELLING at me. I used to be a cop. The only time I yelled was when a 400 pound Samoan asswipe was resisting arrest. Not a good idea otherwise - we live in the age of nutjobs who like to blow people away for shit like that. It was painful for me to say 'yes sir'. He wasn't even in his own territory. I would like to know on what planet you get a ticket for going too slow in the fast lane, when you are actually going 5 over the speed limit. WTF? So the people going 90 don't get irritated?

I can tell it's going to be a sleepless night. It's back. My good 'ol friend insomnia. It happens when I think too much. (Not drink, THINK) Being brain dead is much easier on the 40 winks. Fuck.

You know what? I don't care that I cuss. I like it. I get it out. I guess I'll just have to deal with it. I know it isn't lady-like. I know it isn't eloquent. It -seems- hypocritical to my faith, but I do it anyway. I don't hide it. It offends some people. It makes others laugh. It makes me sound uneducated, even though I am quite well educated. OH FUCKING WELL. Anyone keeping tabs on me? I do not use it to hurt people; my heart is not malicious. I don't do it at inappropriate times - I'm not stupid. I use it to express the intense feelings I don't know what to do with. I use it for humor. I use it to keep the phonies away.

Maybe I use it to keep people away. What are you doing here? Why do you read? Who are you?

Are you new? Is this a frequent stop? Tell me. I've got time.
About a year ago, I wondered where my life would be now. Well, truly, a lot has changed. Most for the good, I guess. Everything is so different, but I'm trying to see it as positive. Like I said earlier, I'm still struggling with a few things - but I'm definitely keeping busy with my new job and little projects I have going on at home. (When I'm not sleeping.) I am also still struggling with my stupid weight. It has become more about health lately than vanity, although I would like to look and feel sexier and stronger. Most of the time I feel like an big oaf and I hate taking pills. I haven't been able to join the boxing club like I had hoped due to my crazy work schedule - but I do have a video at home. SHUT. UP. But yes, you would laugh your ass off if you watched me try to do it. I close all the windows and drapes. Sometimes the dogs bark at me. Sometimes I fall. (One con about getting ceramic flooring, LOL.)

Anyway, nothing much else going on. Gotta work now. I'll write later. I'm feeling chatty.

It is a nice warm Saturday afternoon. Finally! Here is the comfy 'rocking' patio couch I got as a hand-me-down - nestled among my dying grass. Sigh. It will be great for sunbathing and watching lightning storms. You know how I love me some storms! I still need to move to a place that has really good ones, but I have to wait until my company builds more plants, which will be in the near future. It is a really good job for me and I don't want to give up the money and the growth potential! I've heard through the grapevine of plants possibly in Texas, Los Angeles and Atlanta - but just rumors for now. I'm going to be training some of the New Jersey staff soon (can't wait!).

I am also wearing my new earrings I got as a special gift from a very special person. I dig 'em! They're me. Thank you, you know who you are! ;-). The other pic of me was a goof-up mistake, but it's kinda funky and I like it.

My mood has been a little better lately, but I'm still struggling with a few things, that if I think about them too long I get weepy. BUT, I'm keeping myself busy.

All about work.

For people who come into our office fired up - they get a five minute timeout with my lava lamp.

My coworker and I had a very pretty lunch; and FYI, Iced Thai coffees ROCK.

I have the blahs.

The car right next to mine in the parking garage was broken into and bashed all to hell. Here is he glass. Scary.

View from the executive board room. Pretty.

I'm stressed to the max. My engine light came on, Maggie has a growing lump on her head, work is nuts and Louie's behavior is out of control. Don't know what to do anymore. Craziness abounds.

Sunday, June 21, 2009

It is late June. I am freezing. I am wearing a coat because I am freezing. It is now in the 80's in Cali. Life is not fair. At all.

Saturday, June 20, 2009

I'm cranky this morning. It is rainy and kinda cold. My coffee doesn't taste that good. I'm hungry, but I need to go grocery shopping. I work so many hours during the week that I cannot get errands done, which leaves them for the weekend. My weekend gets shot in the ass with errands and cleaning. Bleh. I need a personal assistant.

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

So guess who is going to New Jersey and New York on a business trip?!? MOI!! I have never been beyond the West Coast...things are changing for me. Weeeee! I will be staying on a few extra days to take in the sights. I'm all excited.
Kim - here is a full shot of the shirt.

Black dress for Broadway show?

Multicolor fun dress for dancing?

Need to buy clothes for NY...

My pretty new hippie shirt with super long sleeves, and my new cool necklace!

I have a bruise on my stomach. A big one. How does one accomplish that? No one has punched me in the stomach, and I don't remember running into anything. Weirdness.

Well, home again, home again. Back to work as usual and getting caught up on all the things I'm behind in, which is A LOT. I'm trying to decide if I want to recarpet the house or put in this really cool ceramic flooring. (like the pic) I'm thinking ceramic because then I wouldn't have to worry about dog pee and it would be soooo much easier (and cheaper) to keep clean. I will need to trip less, though. Ouch.

I'm leaving on a jet plane...

Back home. Back to work tomorrow. Yippee.

Huntington Beach rocks!

Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

Going to Huntington Beach today. I think. Curled my hair his morning but I don't know why - it will frizz into oblivion in 20 minutes in this humidity. It is supposed to drizzle rain today. Joy.

OK, I lied. But aren't these the CUTEST shoes??

The house/pool, my little table by the pool and the tunnel that when I was a little girl, my grandparents used to take me through and honk three times. Memories.

I made my mom and Cathy go see "Drag Me To Hell". LOL!! They don't appreciate campy horror quite like I do, although Cathy laughed at all the right moments. If you like The "Evil Dead" series and "Army of Darkness", you'll LOVE this, if not, don't bother cuz you won't get it. ;-)

This is how retarded I am. I am all oiled up and laying by the pool in overcast 68 degree weather. I am determined. If anyone saw me right now (especially my coworkers) there would be howling laughter. Oh well. I am as nutty as they come. I am also sitting here doing my banking with my glasses on. Super sexy. I can't believe it is 80 degrees at home. This blows.

I've decided to do a 24 hour fast because I have been eating like crap and feel bloated and toxic. Blech. I miss home. How sad am I?

Looking at the plants in the back yard, I ran across this...

Guess if I get lonely at night...

Did I say that out loud? LOL

This is the last foot pic I swear. I don't know why I take them, feet are icky. I don't like my body, so you get feet, face, hands and an occasional chest shot. I have to be careful with those though, don't wanna go porn on you. Hehe.

I'm finally in vacation mode. I've been camped out on patio furniture for several hours now reading and soaking in the overcast sun. (Which means I will probably burn into oblivion.) I am reading the Sookie Stackhouse Novels (True Blood) for fun since the season is starting back up on Sunday. I'm tired of reading 'The Stock Market for Dummies' at the moment. LOL.

We're not doing margaritas this trip because my mom is on medication and I don't care to drink alone. A nice iced tea by the pool is good too.

Oh yeah, my road stories. First, I got a mosquito bite or something on my foot while I was driving and I was trying to scratch it with my sandal. I ripped a bunch of skin off. We pulled over and my mom attempted to apply first aid and I swear to God she may as well have poured rubbing alcohol on my open flesh because I went through the roof. I may have said motherfucker a time or two or 40 in very inventive sentences parked in front of an AM/PM Mini Mart at 2 am in nowhere California. I don't remember. So that was nice. BTW, I have a really high pain tolerance (HA) - but I'll save THAT story for another time. Maybe.

Second, my mom tried to kill me AGAIN. She is sadistic, that one. We were leaving a friend's house and I accidentally left the back car door slightly ajar, so it started beeping. My mom got out to shut it, then we took off again. She said something about 'checking my door', and I thought she meant open and close my side to make sure it wasn't ajar also. That is not what she meant. As soon as I opened it, she took a sharp left and I went flying along with door almost diving into the pavement head first. I screamed. LOUD. Then we laughed for a half an hour.

I'm here, I'm dead, and I have road stories I'll tell tomorrow (I almost fell out of the car). We got in at 8 am, went to breakfast with a friend and then got to the house and crashed. Got up at 4 pm, went grocery shopping, and got a coffee bean coffee THAT THEY FUCKED UP that I was too tired to complain about. Cali is definitely no Seattle when it comes to baristas.

My feet and calves are swollen from sittiing in one position for 23 hours (pictured for your enterainment) and I stuck them promptly in the pool. AHHH. The weather is actually quite pleasant. I am currently sitting by the pool listening to the doves coo after gorging myself on Biagio's pizza.

Saturday, June 06, 2009

Here come the feet pics...LOL. I have hot pink toes this trip. Something different - I'm sick of red.

My mom told me she likes to travel with me because I'm "so laid back and easy to be around.". How sweet!

477 miles to Sacramento.

My mom has Sirius Radio (yes, my MOM) and we are listening to the 70's music station. I totally dig it.

Were off! Cali-bound! I'm tired as all hell. I'm going to need MUCH caffeine. MUCH. Mom's driving first shift since I am NOT a morning person and I always take the night shift since she can't see. I'm getting use to this road trip. I think I could do it in my sleep. Free vacations are a plus though! :-)

Instant gratificaton!

Starbucks has a new 'instant' coffee that is GOOD! I love it! I have never liked instant coffee, but I'm on board with this one. I like the medium the best. It wires the shit outta me, though - more so than espresso. Weeeee!

One more day until my trip! And do know what sucks? It is in the 90's here and the 60's and 70's in Cali. Figures.

My desk holds my BITE ME cup and all the work I have to get done tomorrow. Sigh.

Monday, June 01, 2009

I need to get back to writing. I miss it. I used to blab on and on in this blog about everything. Why have I stopped? Well...my new job is taking up most of my time, but honestly, I have been very hesitant to write about my feelings of late. Much has happened over the years - especially the last year - and I pretty much imploded into myself. I have become elusive and isolated. I work. I sleep. I eat. I do not talk to many people other than family and co-workers. I have a few people I talk to online/texting, but it has all come down to a very dull roar. I used to get so many emails I didn't know how to handle them all, and now you can hear the crickets. I miss it. Kinda. It can be a little nuts, but it was fun and social. I don't have time to be depressed anymore with working 12 hours/day and sometimes on the weekends, but I feel a little empty. I am talking to God about that.

I am driving to California with my mom next Saturday and staying a week. It will give me some much needed relax time - and maybe some time to write and sort out my insides. My life is flying by too quickly and I need to stop and smell the roses for a bit.
I saw a sign this morning that said "Never trust a skinny cook." So you can trust my cooking. HA

I feel bloated as hell this morning and I'm exhausted. I was working on my laptop until 1 am in the hopes of meeting my deadline. I think I'm gonna make it. Hooray. Where's the coffee...meh.
