Friday Five

Again it’s friday.
1. As a child, who was your favorite superhero/heroine? Why?
I used to want to eat spinach like Popeye. I ate it straight out of the can, but I could never get it to “fountain” into my mouth.. a fork had to be used. I didn’t really have time for superheros when I was a child.
2. What was one thing you always wanted as a child but never got?
A pony! Not really though. I sometimes wanted a younger brother, but I’ve never disliked being an only child.
3. What’s the furthest from home you’ve been?
I went with my mom to Seattle when I was 4.. I lost my slinky by dropping it off the fire escape of the apartment we were visiting. It was a sad day.
4. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to learn but haven’t yet?
In Junior High, part of the Phy. Ed. curriculum was to go bowling for two weeks and score the games by hand. I never quite got it. Maybe because I was more interested in bowling.
5. What are your plans for the weekend?
That’s kind of a cop-out question, don’t you think?


At 5 to 5 last night, I learned that the job description that I wrote for myself at the end of last year is being rapidly pushed through to fruition. I had previous knowledge that it was being “worked on”, which lead me to beleive that it would be another 5 months before I heard anything again. In the meantime, I tried to figure out what I’d say if they told me I could start at $13.65 an hour. Well, not really what I’d say, but exactly how I would say it. So, again, rewind to 4:55p yesterday: They’re deliberating whether or not to make my position salaried, since my skills and tasks cover a huge range. I’m kinda nervous though, I don’t know if my boss feels like that would be a good idea… I think I need to update my resume, anyhow.

Haircuts for 2003

Someone is desperately trying to get their hair cut short in the latest style. My site has had a total of 29 hits this week of someone searching for the most popular haircuts of 2003; phrasing it in as many different ways as is possible with 3 ‘words’. I sure hope they can get their hair cut soon.


This-or-that Tuesday is from last week because the blog hasn’t been updated to reflect today.
1. Super Bowl or World Series?
Super Bowl.
2. Winter or summer?
3. Look up numbers in the phone book, or call directory assistance?
Neither. Use anywho.
4. Mashed potatoes or French fries?
Neither. Useless carbs.
5. Hand-code your website, or use an editor (such as Front Page)?
Hand code. duH!
6. Freeway or winding country road?
7. Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Trek.
8. Disney or Warner Brothers cartoons?
Warner Brothers. I think Bugs could kick Mickey’s ass.
9. When it feels chilly in the house: crank up the heat or put on a sweater?
A sweater, scarf and gloves; especially if I’m at work.
10. CBS or PBS?

sunday, sunday, sunday

Every year when mom’s birthday has come and gone, I reflect on how fast the previous year went. Maybe it’s simply that we had a very busy year and it just flew by, or maybe it’s cuz I’m getting older, too. New bekeefact: In addition to not being able to read, do crosswords, or play palmgames in a car, I also cannot knit while in a moving vehicle. This saddens me. Oh, and if you ever get out of the bustling city, this wind farm is probably the coolest thing you’ll see for free in your entire life; though some jerks think it “ruins the scenery”, those are the same people who don’t know what the rest of the world looks like.

saturday scruples

this is just juvenile enough to do.
1. Your brother is an activist. You suspect he may be involved in a series of bombings. Do you notify authorities?
well, being an only child with no knowledge of the strength of sibling connections, my first thought was to get my nosey business out of his “activism” and focus on more comforting things, like baking chicken pot pies.
2. A friend’s spouse is coming on to you. Do you tell the friend?
hell yea! then we can have a threesome.
3. Your company’s profits will double if you replace 22 long-time employees with new software. Do you?
i don’t think so.. especially if i were included in that pool of 22. i’m not saying that i ain’t no team player; i just like to play for the little guys.

i can’t stop!

yup, it’s friday.
1. What is one thing you don’t like about your body?
i don’t like that the tattoo on my boob of a little cartoon guy in a straight jacket is getting taller.
2. What are two things you love about your body?
that everything still functions as it should, and that i don’t have an overabundance of hair in any weird places. (that was /hard/.)
3. What are three things you want to change about your home?
aside from the fact that we rent: get a bigger tub, would like more closets (i.e., utility closet, bathroom closet, anything to get the damn vaccuum out of my bedroom), and more kitchen counter space.
4. What are four books you want to read this year?
The art of looking sideways, Scumbler.. this is taking too long. (note to readers, i already own the two books that i mentioned.)
5. What are five promises you have kept to yourself?
i will continue to keep them to myself.


You’ve probably read it already, but I hadn’t. Here’s what some people have to say about blogs. Just got back from a nummy breakfast at Monty’s with T. I will say that Lazy Jane’s does a better spinch feta omelette. I really enjoy how he and I can’t stop talking. It’s good to know someone’s listening between glares at the screaming baby in the next booth. :)

yesterdays events

cursing damn work computer for crashing I’m going to summarize, since I don’t have the patience to be witty twice in a row. The note blew away because it’s too cold for the tape. The paper was no where to be seen this morning. I had a personal Pizzeria Uno pizza last night (Four Cheese with Pesto) and it was good. Almost all of my eBay bead “winnings” have been mailed to me so I can start learning how to peyote stitch. That’s all for now.
