It is AFRICA HOT.

I'm melting. It is 93 degrees INSIDE my house at 8:45 pm. It was over a hundred today and going to be even hotter tomorrow. UG. If I had airconditioning in my house it wouldn't be so bad, but I don't. I have one of those little window ones for my bedroom (THANK GOD), but that poor little thing is cranking so hard I'm wondering if it'll make through the heat wave.

I just got done hosing off the patio, the dogs and myself. That helps. It is too hot to eat. Sunday night it was hot too so I made a Jamaican jerk shrimp salad. MMMMMM. (Pictured)

And finally, the wine pic is hung and I have more foliage for the basket pot.

Oh, and I also have a thing for cheetah print of late...I don't know what's going on with me.

The shoes would look soooo cute with faded levi's and a silky black tank top, don't ya think?













Went shopping with Ma today - we are both redecorating a little. I found the most beautiful wine painting to go in my dining room - I will show it in all of it's glory on the red wall later when it is hung. I also found this cute little basket pot. I need to find some more foliage to go in it, but it's a start. Then, we have the red and green glass candle holders, and some imported Sangria (from Spain) that is quite delightful on this 95 degree day. (OK, that's not decorative, but shopping takes it outta me.) Finally, my sentiments to uninvited guests - my, um...welcome mat.

Well, the Lou-Master is feeling better. This is a pic of his project to dig to China from MY OFFICE. Little rat-bastard. Now I have another excuse to get ceramic flooring.

I Live.

Not much to say. Well, not much to say on the blog, anyway. Louie was diagnosed with arthritis and a back/spinal problem that is causing nerve damage. The poor little guy was in pain and didn't know how to tell us except to be grumpy. The vet put him on joint lubricator and some pain management meds. Since he has been on those, he has been perky and playful - sooo much better. I broke down and balled on the vet's floor. I feel like it is the beginning of the end because Lou is already 10. I just want him to be happy and in no pain - to have quality of life. I will have to sell a kidney to pay for the monthly vet bills now.

I missed a meeting with my director this morning. NOT good. I don't foresee this day getting any better.

So I just called my boss to tell her I'd be late due to traffic and she laughed at me and said "Have fun with that.".

This is the lovely traffic I'm sitting in. I am not amused. I'm bored so I took a pic of my heart charm neclace. And YES, it is OK to blog if you aren't MOVING. This sucks. I'm going to be soooo late, which means I won't be getting home until dark. That always makes for a nice day - work then bed. Neat.

I think I need a new mattress. I'm waking up with a backache every morning. It is horrible. I feel like a 100 year old Frankenstein.

There is thunder storm this morning. I'm enjoying it - it is dark and creepy out like an old horror movie.

I had a fun Friday night, a lazy Saturday, and now I have to get some things done around here and possibly do some work-work. Work-work is the stuff I get paid for. Just so you know the diff.

Well, Son of Beech. Sheet! (think "Stripes" movie)

My NJ/NY trip might be cancelled now. It is not 100%, but they are thinking of just sending my boss without me to do all the training. Big huge bummer. My boss is still trying to convince the powers that be of the need for my presence there (which is true), but who knows if they'll listen. Fingers crossed!

My life is so boring. I'm looking at shoes online again. I have a problem.

Went to grab a bite at the bathroom-nazi Subway Sandwich Shop. They had Led Zeppelin cranked. LOL-Gotta love Seattle.

On another note - I'm New Jersey/New York bound in two weeks!!! A tad earlier than expected.

Are these not the coolest pink pumps you've ever seen? Where do you wear them, though? I've never had a shoe interest before. I've always been so practical in this area - maybe five pairs. 1 pair of sneakers, 1 pair of sandals, 1 pair of nice shoes (usually pumps), 1 pair of flats and 1 pair of boots. I have gone bonkers since then. I have over 25 pairs now. I still have *never* read a romance novel, however. NEVER. The only romance I get is in the vampire porn novels. HA. Guess I'm just a little more realistic in the love area. (you know, cuz vampire porn is realistic...) What I mean is, romance? Whatever. Too much work - and I question the sincerity you know? Passion now, is an entirely different story. Passion rocks. But for the most part, I'm with the guys - let's cut to the chase.

So the 4th of July. Maggie, my insane dog, attempted to jump up and take a lit sparkler out of the 8-year neighbor's kid's hand. I was video taping it because it started out cute, but then I freaked when I realized she may get it and burn her mouth. I tried to upload the video of me losing my mind, but I couldn't get it to work. That's probably a good thing. LOL
My new fav tune...

I'm walking around half naked today because it is hot and blaring it.

So I was up at 3 am. Is eating left over pizza at that hour OK? Is cleaning also OK? It seems odd to me, yet comfortable. So how is everyone doing out there?

Friday, July 03, 2009

I received some very bad news yesterday. I'm trying to hold it together the best I can. There is nothing I can do.

Happy 4th everybody.

Downtown and misc. work pics.


The art sculpture is supposed to mean 'peace and serenity' or something. To me it is 'logs hanging from a metal pipe triangle blocking my view of the water'. But to each his own I guess.

The fountain is cool except for the naked kid sculpture. I found it retarded. Maybe I'm just picky about what I think is art. I don't know. Too critical?

Odwalla 'serious focus' apple raspberry. My fav. And I NEED serious focus...otherwise I go nucking futs like the sign above my computer.

So we had an earthquake today. I didn't feel it because I was in bed. Poo. Not too big - a 3.7 or something. I don't know why, but I like earthquakes. Not the destructive killer ones, but the roly poly fun ones. I know. Freak. You have NO idea.

I telecommuted today. Yup, worked from home. Liked that. Wish I could do it more. I loved having the pups lay at my feet.

Howz that for a seriously random post?
