Figuring It Out As I Go…











{September 10, 2007}   Not It Not It Not It!

I’ve been tagged by Barnmouse to do the following:

“You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.”

I go by my middle name (don’t you wish you knew my first!!) so here goes!

A – Anal: AKA OCD 🙂  Yup, that’s me.  I can be a tad anal, and a tad OCD.  Just part of my charm folks, just part of my charm!

R – Rare: I can promise you, I’m one of a kind 😛  For the sanity of others, I’m sure this was done on purpose!

L – Laugh: Something I do often, normally at myself 😀

E – Engage: I can engage almost ANYONE in conversation…it’s a curse gift.

N – No: I don’t like this word, and I don’t respond kindly to it.

E – Entertaining: What most of my stories are, because they normally involve me being short bus special!

So there you have it folks.  I’m not tagging anyone, but I hope you guys do it…let me know so I can read ’em 🙂



{July 10, 2007}   I Rock!!

Thanks Katie!!  WooHoo, my first award!!!!

I’m supposed to nominate 5 people, but in keeping with Katie’s trend, I’m not going to nominate those she nominated (and why can’t I pick more??) Ok ok, I know, rules. Here goes!

Gloria:
She never ceases to make me smile, laugh like a dork at my desk, and even twist my heart occasionally!

Barnmouse:
Her gym and home improvement stories are priceless, not to mention she makes some mean doggie treats!

Sheri and SuZan:
Really, do I need words for these 2?? They’re just fabulous! ‘Nuff said!

Jenni:
Her stories about her kids always crack me up! I know anytime I go to her blog I’m going to be entertained by the latest rock star or princess antics…not to mention her mom has some great dirt on her!!

Amy:
This girl has some great stories, about everything from ridiculous coworkers to absurd condo issues! I can’t help but smile and be pissed right along with her!



{July 10, 2007}   Tickle Tuesday

Welcome to Tickle Tuesday, brought to us by Sheri and SuZan!

I urgently needed a few days off work, But, I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave. I thought that maybe if I acted “Crazy” then he would tell me to take a few days off.

 

So, I hung upside-down on the ceiling & made funny noises. My co-worker (who’s blonde) asked me what I was doing.
I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, So, that the Boss might think I was “Crazy” & give me a few days off.
A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, “What in the name of good GOD are you doing?”

 

I told him I was a light bulb. He said, “You are clearly stressed out. Go home & recuperate for a couple of days.”

 

I jumped down & walked out of the office… When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, The Boss asked her “…And where do you think you’re going?!”

(You’re going to love this….)

 

 

She said, “I’m going home too, I can’t work in the dark!!

 Welcome to WCW, brought to us by she who cracks her shit up over skeleton keys!

 

 

 I pretty much did this one for SFG…as soon as it came on this morning I thought of her!  

Seriously, this is ridiculous!  A 10 year run, with a crappy ending, and even Sirius is playing it on their “hits” station!  WTF?? 

I’ve got a new post under this one, but I couldn’t pass up WCW with gold like this to post! 



{June 12, 2007}   Wild Card Wednesday

Today we were assigned the letter K, so I give you penguins kissing 🙂



{April 27, 2007}   Tagged!!

I got tagged by Miss Dutch Femka. Since I’ve taken a small break from my regular daily meme’s, I figured I’d better do this one!

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to blog about their seven things and post the rules as well. At the end of your post, choose 7 people to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog! OK, here goes…

1) Like Miss Femka, I’m in a MOOOOOD today!!!
2) I let the doggy sleep with me last night, and it didn’t help me sleep because every time the house settled he jumped up and stared at the door. Not so helpful.
3) My ulcer is killing me because I’ve been drinking coffee every morning for the past 2 weeks since I can’t sleep.
4) I’m addicted to my cell phone. Seriously. And I send and receive about 3000 text messages a month!!
5) Sasha is the first car I’ve kept longer than a year!
6) I want more than anything to be married and be a family, but I fear it will never happen.
7) My Grandpa is dying. I haven’t talked to him in over a year because of a drug addict. I saw him at my Uncle’s memorial service and he was very hateful. Because of that I’m afraid to try again…

So there you go folks, stuff you knew, stuff you didn’t, and stuff that sucks.
I’m tagging: Gloria, Uzz, Jenni, Katie, Bone, Amy and The J-Mo. Go forth and MEME!



{April 11, 2007}   Three Word Wednesday

Welcome to 3WW, brought to us by he who loves his baseball! This weeks words are:
Lost
Waves
Lined

I’d been feeling lost for a while. Not sure where life was going. Not sure if this was at all what I thought when I was a kid and so anxious to grow up. The best way to clear my mind has and always will be, going to the ocean. So I opened the sunroof, turned the stereo up, and put the pedal to the metal!
As I got closer and closer to the ocean, the highway became lined with huge trees. The kind I can’t help but stop and take pictures of, forever trying to perfect a picture of bark! The smell of the air was amazing, and I was reminded yet again why the open road has always appealed to me!
I hopped back into my car, and before I knew it, the ocean was layed out before me, the waves crashing onto the cliffs. Instantly I felt at peace. All the stress I’d been feeling gone. Washed away by the waves…



{April 4, 2007}   Three Word Wednesday

Welcome to 3WW, brought to us by he who eats, sleeps and breathes baseball.

Todays words are:
Miles
Voice
Holding

I had nothing but the memory of his voice, keeping me awake as the miles melted away, taking me closer and closer to my love, who will forever be holding my heart in his hands.

So, did you play??
