The Internet LIVES!

WAAHA. HA. HA. (Supposed to be a evil scary laugh. Cruela Devil style.)Today was supposed to be the day that the company I work for was shutting down all non-work related web sites but looky looky I'm still able to get on the good ole blog!

Another thing the company was supposed to do but hasn't was give us yearly raises. I mean really why even do a yearly review and rate me on performance if I am not getting a raise for it? I guess I will just be thankful that I still have a decent job. Things could be worse. Things could always be worse.

Like if my husband got laid off from his job for 8 months then I got fired from mine for 6 weeks and we had 2 car payments, a motorcycle payment, a mortgage and other junk. Ending up having to sell the bike and getting the house foreclosed on. That would be worse.
Wait.... that did happen, just last year.

I just hope that it doesn't get any worse now.

RTT: I'm back!

Taking vacation days is awesome! I did pretty much nothing productive but it was waaaayyy better than doing actual work! I meant to clean the carpets and give the dog a bath but in the four days I was off work I didn't get either of those done. Oh well I did get some new clothes thanks to my parents giving me birthday money!


I have decided to cut chocolate completely out of my diet. Right after I eat the chocolate cake my mom made for my birthday and I finish off these last 5 candy bars.


Last night a bird or fifty exploded on my car. I usually don't park under the tree outside my apartment building but last night I did. And my car took a beating of poo. (Ok really this happened like almost a week ago but I haven't washed it off yet and it just looks like it happened last night. Yeah its gross and the car wash station is literally 10 feet from my building but again doing nothing is way better than doing work. Plus its been overcast the last few days. Really it has. I promise.)


I really need to start back working out. I have probably gained like 10 pounds over this weekend by eating way too much and sitting on the couch all day. Hopefully tonight I can start running again. Hopefully.


Well this may be my last post, for a while anyways. They are taking away most Internet sites at work and I have no computer or Internet at home. So that sucks but oh well, I haven't been writing as much as I thought I would anyways.

Random Random Random...Tuesday Thoughts

An older lady came in to the bank today with her daughter to make a withdrawal. It was so sad because the mother was totally out of her mind (like dementia, I'm totally not making fun of her). I have a great aunt that is suffering from some type of dementia and I cant imagine what she and her immediate family is going through. And it got me thinking... I don't want to live with or die from something like Alzheimer's or dementia. I hope and pray that this never awful disease never effects me.


Ok the above statement sounds really selfish, so in that case I will hope and pray for you too.


Speaking of dying, those Lucinda Bassett commercials on the radio make me want to gouge my eyeballs out with spoons and swallow them (which would probably kill me)! She is doing a commercial for depression, stress, anxiety and she sounds so freaking depressed herself! I mean really she could at least pretend to be happy so that people would want to buy this junk.


K so I googled Lucinda Bassett and in the first few things that came up it said Lucinda Bassett scam... yeah that should let ya know something right there.


Cant wait until Friday so that my extra long birthday weekend can start. Don't really have plans yet but I am sure laying on the couch watching HGTV and TLC will be sooooo much better than working.


I do believe that I have a true addiction to home improvement/design/cake making/food challenges/makeovers/anything that comes on TLC (except for Baby Story and those medical mystery shows) and HGTV.

Maybe Lucinda Bassett can help me.

Probably all that she would have to do is start to talk to me in that low mono-tone voice and I would surrender just so she would stop.

Happy Tuesday!

Mommy, I want to start school too!

As much as I like my job (really I do!) I feel like I keep hitting a rather large, brick wall. It just feels like, because I am young and look even younger, no one takes me seriously some days. Other days I am fine and am heard and feel like I have an impact and do a good job and all that jazz.

I guess what is boils down to is that when I work on the sales side of things I lose confidence. I don't really like to sell people things and I hate to feel like I am being pushy. I don't want to sell people a product that they may not really even want or have any use for so I don't seem to open as many accounts as some others do. I just suck as a sales person.

I can follow policy and procedure all day long and I am good at that. Once the sale is made and the actual account opening is ready to be done I am fine. I have my set of regulations to follow and viola! Simple.

So this coming to these conclusions over the past year made me think... I should go back to school so that I can advance myself in this company. I love the company I work for and the people here I just am not the best at customer service. I have always wanted to be in accounting, that is the whole reason at 18 I got into banking. I thought that I would get to go back to school way before now but finances and life issues got a little in the way of that goal.

But the putting off ends... well in my mind now but in reality not until the spring semester (hopefully) starts so that I can gather the funds and have plenty of time to enroll and get good classes at the times I want. WOO HOO!

My mind is too dull for RTT today, anyways...

I think that my car battery is about to die. Its really struggling to start... ugh I really don't have the money to get a new battery but hopefully its just a battery and not something worse and more expensive.


For some odd reason when I typed the above, the nursery rhyme "There Was an Old Lady(who swallowed a fly)" came to mind. I used to love that one as a kid.

I don't know why she swallowed the fly-Perhaps she'll die.


Do most people have pictures of just themselves on their work desks? My job is basically filling in for any one that has time off (vacation, sick, training, and all that BS) so I am usually sitting at other people's desks and today the desk I am at has several pictures on it, but one is of just them... It's sort of freaking me out because it's like they are looking at me.


What kind of kid says "Perhaps"?? I am thinking that we southernized the rhyme and said "I guess she'll die."


That's all I've got. See my mind really was dull today.

Happy Tuesday!

A true FML moment

(BTW this didnt happen to me.)

Last week I checked into my hotel in Tampa and was a bit lonely. I thought, I'll call one of those girls you see advertised in phone books like escorts and such.

I picked up the phone book and found an ad for a girl calling herself Erogonique, a lovely girl, bending over in the photo. She had all the right curves in all the right places, beautiful long wavy hair, long graceful legs...... well, you get the picture!

I figured, what the heck, give her a call.

"Hello," the woman says .

God, she sounded sexy.

Afraid I would lose my nerve if I hesitated I rushed right in. "Hi, I hear you give a great massage and I'd like you to come to my room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I'm in town all alone and what I really want is sex. I want it hard, I want it hot, and I want it now.
Bring implements, toys, rubber, leather, whips, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. We'll go hot and heavy all night; tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything and everything! Now, how does that sound?"

"That sounds fantastic," she says, "but you need to press 9 for an outside line."
