Mood: Happy
Work docket: I got not nary ONE thing done today because my whole day was filled with telephone calls and questions.
Lunch: Had lunch w/John at the Bistro at Cherry Hill. It’s in the Cherry Hill Mall.
Dinner: Chick-fil-A sandwich. Most of it anyway. I left some of the bun.
Countdowns: 32 days until my vacation. 3 days until Survior:Vanuatu. I hope a volcano erupts during the show!
Fantasy Football: My Legend killers got SPANKED in their week one matchup. And not even in a fun way. 😉 The guy who scored the highest on my team was a dude on my BENCH! (Thomas Jones, RB, Chicago) We can’t have this. I’m really going to have to re-evaluate my team for next week.

After work I went back to the mall for a little shopping. I went into Victoria’s Secret for a garter belt…came out empty handed because this 8ish year old boy was just…just…LEERING at me. I never thought kids that age could leer. In any case, it was squicky enough for me to leave.

My last stop on the way home was Pier One. I always love going into that store, and 99% of the time I walk out empty handed. Tonight I realized why. They have some ugly stuff. What the heck am I going to do with a bunch of bamboo sticks? They did have some nice (albeit very expensive) Christmas ornaments out. It’ll be nice to have Christmas in a house this year. It’s been a long time coming.

I ended up returning home with nary a dollar spent, save the Chick-Fil-A sandwich.

Last night I – um – ‘acquired’ some music from a band called Flogging Molly. Irish punk band complete with an accordion, fiddle, and spoons. It ain’t no Dave Matthews Band, I’ll tell you that! I’ll try it out some more, and if I like it, I’ll buy the CD. If not, I’ll delete it and be done. I like trying on music like that.

My new mantra

“There is nothing that this job can throw at me that I can’t handle.”


  • Oversleeping until 8:00 (I start work at 8:30.)
  • The two things from this weekend that didn’t go as they should (retrieved files…they’re processing now)
  • The imminent change in reporting software that’ll force me to learn something new…again (Must learn about Crystal Reports)
  • The call I have to make to someone about a bill (salesguy’s on vacation…I don’t usually deal w/advertisers)
  • The contributions I need to make toward a business plan, due Wednesday (a few paragraphs…surely I can do that…what’s a business plan??)
  • and the melted Burt’s Bees lipgloss that dripped all over my legs while I was in the drive-through at McDonalds. (ow! hot wax! ew! Red stains!)

    Is it any wonder that my Fiesta Salad turned into a Cheeseburger Happy Meal with a Teeny Beany Baby Bear?

    Loose ends

    I forgot to mention that the loose ends from the move are being tied up one by one. All of our phone jacks now work. We bought a lawnmower and Thor did a valiant job this weekend. And the missing piece of our sectional arrived last week as well. It’s the only thing to sit on in the living room, but it’s decadent. I can stretch out on one end, Thor can stretch out on the other end, and we don’t even touch! It also has three recliners built in.

    Day 1 of the SBD went reasonably well. I was raging hungry in the afternoon, but I ate a few mozzarella cheese sticks, and toughed it out. I was afraid once Thor left for work that I’d find the cookies. But I prevailed! Most of the recipes were very good. I had grilled salmon for dinner. The dessert (based on ricotta cheese) was pretty bad. It actually depressed me.

    I didn’t go to the gym last night as planned, but what I AM doing is searching for a copy of Dance Dance Revolution<(and a mat) for our old PSOne. I tried this game at DisneyQuest a while back, and I love it. Unfortunately, I suck at it. So DDRing in public isn't really in my cards. Today is going to be hella-long. It’s my numbers day at work – I stack up my Tuesday ($$) and Wednesday ($$ and website hits) reports into one day. Afterward, I get to sit in on focus groups, where folks’ll be answering questions about something I really shouldn’t get into on my personal website. I should be home at 10ish. Leave the light on for me!
