Cybersex Gone Wrong

Monday, April 25, 2005

This is my Amaryllis and Passion Flower. If you look close, you can see the passion flower has just started it's first feeler, which should wrap around the arbor by tomorrow and then start the long climb to the top.

This is a second shot of the blue rose.

Posted By Gandalf
Bannag, these are the rose bushes you wanted to see. At this point, they're about 3 weeks old. The one on the left is the blue rose. It's standing a little under 4 feet tall at this point. The one on the right is a red tea-rose bush. It's growing in width but hasn't done much shooting up yet in height.

I'm taking bets!

Who wants to bet that Gandalf signs up for this? Man's brain wired to computer April 12, 2005 DOCTORS have wired the brain of a quadriplegic man to a computer, enabling him to turn his television on and off and play the video game Pong.Matthew Nagle, 25, has been a quadriplegic since a knife attack four years ago in the US state of Rhode Island. He is the first patient to control external devices by means of electrodes implanted in his brain. The system helping Mr Nagle is called BrainGate and comprises about 100 hair-thin electrodes implanted a millimetre deep into part of the motor cortex of Nagle's brain that controls movement. These lead to a computer which translates them into movements of a cursor.

Letter From Mike

Hi all. I thought you'd all want to see this. This is the first letter April and I received from Mike Etheridge from Boot Camp. He wrote us earlier this week and asked us to pass this information on to all of you. I can tell you from experience being there myself that these guys really really really appreciate getting mail. A simple letter from you can make their whole day. It's not like they're at war, but it feels that way to them while they're there. I still remember the rare times I got letters in boot camp and I've saved everyone I ever received. So, if you can take just a minute and write him a quick hello, I know he'd appreciate it more than you can possibly know. In case you can't read it, his address is as follows: PVT Michael Etheridge 1:5 D Co. 1/329th IN 6071 Hall St Ft. Benning, Ga 31905 For those of you who don't understand the instructions on the letter, take a GREEN magic marker or crayon and color the 4 corners of the envelope when you mail him. This will make sure it gets to the recruit training station much faster. Otherwise, it might be 2 to 3 weeks before he receives it. If you have any questions, just post it as a comment and April or I will answer. You can click on the letter to see it full -size. I scanned it in the comptuer so you could all see it. (April's Idea)

Fixed the blog.

Fixed the blog. There was an issues with Bannag's "What serial killer are you" post. Apparently the length of the URL link was too long for some smaller resolutions (1024x768 + lower) so it made the paragraph section of the blog just a little too wide. That's why I couldn't see it on my screen, my resolution is higher, so all appeared normal. Let me know if you have any further issues. Regards, Scooby Central Tech Support Department

LIGHT MY BLOG

LIGHT MY BLOG This is some funny sh*t!!! I came across this blog just by accident, but I have never laughed as hard as I have at this! I can't just bring over one thing he's done, you just have to see it all! Take some time and scroll through all of the posts, I promise you, it will be fun!

Just think…these women are breeding.

Personally I am praying that this is all in humor and that there aren't really people this ignorant out there...
Supposedly "the following are all replies that Dallas women have written on Child Support Agency forms in the section for listing father's details. These are genuine excerpts from the forms. 1. Regarding the identity of the father of my twins, child A was fathered by Jim Munson. I am unsure as to the identity of the father of child B, but I believe that he was conceived on the same night. 2. I am unsure as to the identity of the father of my child as I was being sick out of a window when taken unexpectedly from behind. I can provide you with a list of names of men that I think were at the party if this helps. 3. I do not know the name of the father of my little girl. She was conceived at a party at 3600 Grand Avenue where I had unprotected sex with a man I met that night. I do remember that the sex was so good that I fainted. If you do manage to track down the father, can you send me his phone number? Thanks. 4. I don't know the identity of the father of my daughter. He drives BMW that now has a hole made by my stiletto in one of the door panels. Perhaps you can contact BMW service stations in this area and see if he's had it replaced. 5. I do not know who the father of my child was, as all Blacks look the same to me. 6. Peter Smith is the father of child A. If you do catch up with him, can you ask him what he did with my Rolling Stone CDs? 7. From the dates it seems that my daughter was conceived at Disney World; maybe it really is the Magic Kingdom. 8. So much about that night is a blur. The only thing that I remember for sure is Julia Child did a program about eggs earlier in the evening. If I'd have stayed in and watched more TV rather than going to the party at 146 Miller Drive, mine might have remained unfertilized. 9. I am unsure as to the identity of the father of my baby, after all, when you eat a can of beans you can't be sure which one made you fart."

Here's another one...this one is a little more in depth

"Ed Gein Your personality matches Criminal Profile 4081646. Gein's desolate farmhouse was a study in chaos. Inside, junk and rotting garbage covered the floor and counters. It was almost impossible to walk through the rooms. The smell of filth and decomposition was overwhelming. While the local sheriff, Arthur Schley, inspected the kitchen with his flashlight, he felt something brush against his jacket. When he looked up to see what it was he ran into, he faced a large, human carcass hanging upside down from the beams. ____________________________________________ Your personality type matches the criminal profile of Ed Gein. Bizarre handicraft made Eddie into a celebrity. Author Robert Bloch was inspired to write a story about Norman Bates, a character based on Eddie, which became the central theme of the Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller Psycho. In 1974, the classic thriller by Tobe Hooper, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, has many Geinian touches, although there is no character that is an exact Eddie Gein model. This movie helped put "Ghastly Gein" back in the spotlight in the mid-1970's. Years later, Eddie provided inspiration for the character of another serial killer, Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs. Like Eddie, Buffalo Bill treasured women's skin and wore it like clothing in some insane transvestite ritual. While shocked deputies searched through the rubble of Eddie Gein's existence, they realized that the horrible discoveries didn't end at the missing Mrs. Worden's body. They had stumbled into a death farm. The funny-looking bowl in his home was actually the top of a human skull. The lampshades and wastebasket were made from human skin. A ghoulish inventory began to take shape: an armchair made of human skin, female genitalia kept preserved in a shoebox, a belt made of nipples, a human head, four noses and a heart. The more the looked through the house, the more ghastly trophies they found. Finally a suit made entirely of human skin. Their heads spun as they tried to tally the number of woman that may have died at Eddie's hands. While you may or may not be capable of performing the horrific acts he did, you loosely resemble (with some obvious exceptions) his criminal profile based upon your general motivations, preferences and behavior patterns." Okay...this one is slightly more disturbing!

I don't really see the bigotry...but I can say I have had the occasional urge to mow down some people with a rifle.... especially this week! Muh Hah Hah Hah!

You Know You're Addicted To Coffee When:

Ok.. you know I HAD to post this. You can jump start your car without cables. You answer the door before people knock. You get a speeding ticket even when you are parked. You've worn out your third pair of shoes this week. Your eyes stay open even when you sneeze. You grind coffee beans in your mouth. You can type sixty words per minute -- with your feet. You soak your dentures in coffee overnight. You sleep with your eyes open. You have a picture of your coffee mug on your coffee mug. Instant coffee takes too long to make. You channel surf faster without the remote. You don't sweat... you percolate. You've built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers. You short out motion detectors. You walk twenty miles on your treadmill before you realize it's not plugged in. The only time you are standing still is during an earthquake! You've worn the finish off your coffee table. All your kids are named Joe. Juan Valdez named his donkey after you. People get dizzy just watching you. Starbucks owns the mortgage on your house. The nurse needs a scientific calculator to take your pulse. The Taster's Choice couple wants to adopt you. When someone asks 'How are you?' you say, 'Good to the last drop'. You buy milk by the barrel. You can outlast the Energizer bunny. You can take a picture of yourself from ten feet away without using the timer. You can't even remember your second cup. You chew on other people's fingernails. You don't even wait for the water to boil anymore. You don't get mad, you get steamed. You don't need a hammer to pound in nails. You don't tan, you roast. You forget to unwrap candy bars before eating them. You go to AA meetings just for the free coffee. You go to sleep just so you can wake up and smell the coffee. You have to watch videos in fast-forward. You haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse. You help your dog chase its tail. You introduce your spouse as your coffee mate. You just completed another sweater and you don't know how to knit. You lick your coffeepot clean. You name your cats Cream and Sugar. You ski uphill. You speak perfect Arabic without ever taking a lesson. You speed-walk in your sleep. You spend every vacation visiting Maxwell House. You think being called a drip is a compliment. You think CPR stands for Coffee Provides Resuscitation. You'd be willing to spend time in a Turkish prison. Your first-aid kit contains two pints of coffee with an I.V. hookup. Your coffee mug is insured by Lloyds of London. Your lips are permanently stuck in the sipping position. Your nervous twitch registers on the Richter scale. Your only source of nutrition comes from Sweet & Low. Your taste buds are so numb; you could drink your lava lamp. Your Thermos is on wheels. You're so wired, you pick up AM radio. You've built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers. You've worn out the handle on your favourite mug. You take your morning coffee with you in the shower. Your heart beats noticeably faster as a reaction to the smell of coffee.

Lol. What rejected Crayon are you?

You are
LOL... how fitting. I'm named after a penis!

Finally... It's Saturday! Thank God!

Wow guys. It's Saturday at last. What a week this has been. I haven't been looking forward to the end of the week as bad as I was this week in a LONG time. I guess I'll update you on my week thus far and let you know what I've been up to, then see where my conversation train takes me from there. Wait.. you'll have to pardon me while I get another cup of coffee. (That's a BIG cup Thiago and Natalie bought me from Florida!) OK.. that's better. Oh.. you know who called me this morning to bitch about something? Scott. He called my phone and the phone has been SO busy that my voicemail is full. So what does he do? He calls my home phone and leaves a voicemail telling me that my voice mail is full! Ugh! Considering I had that voicemail cleared out yesterday morning, that means that sometime between 9 AM and 1 AM this morning, there were 25 calls that left messages, on TOP of the hundred or so calls I was on, PLUS the other phone that rang off the hook all day. I really wish I had a way to just push a button and forward ALL the phones to a voicemail that said "Hi, It's Saturday... I'm not working... get a life!" Why am I not working you ask? I know.. I'm always working! Well, not today. I'm just simply too mentally exhausted to continue my role as COO of Computer Techs today. I'm taking a break. When I logged my hours this week, I'm at over 80 hours for the week JUST between Monday and Friday. So NO, I'm not going to work today.. I'm tired and I earned the day off. Yes, there are still things to do, but they can wait for Monday... which is when all annoying things are SUPPOSED to be done. That's why God invented Mondays in the first place. So, now, what happened to you all this week? I really want to know. It's been dead here on the blog lately. I'l tell you my week. Monday I had to get up 2 hours early to haul ass to New Bern to handle a potential new customer who's computers fried. Two of their main computers went down and we were the only company open to answer the phone at the ass crack of dawn. Now, with their two computer aptly and promptly fixed, I stand a chance to deliver a proposal to handle ALL their IT solutions for the future, so that was a good day, if a hectic one. And no, that's not all I did that day, but that was the highlight event. That and the conference call and meeting with Cox Communications that I had at 3:30, but I'm not about to post the contents of that meeting on a Blog for obvious security concerns. Tuesday, I had to get up 2 hours early again and get to Raleith first thing. Well, NOT first thing actually. It was supposed to be first thing, but Scott lost some parts we needed for the job. After tearing apart my truck and calling me to tell me to search my house for them, where were they? Right where I said they were in the first place in his office. (supressing my told ya so grin). So, Tuesday we went up to Raleigh and wired a Kirkland's department store. That is slowly turning into a national contract for us. Yeah!!! (Pardon.. got to go check email. I can't stand wondering what that little envelope means at the bottom of my screen. Maybe Bill Gates is finally getting around to reading that resume I keep spamming him with and wants to call to hire me to be the next CIO of microshaft!) Nope... it was just annoyances from the accountant. Whose accountant works on Saturday anyway? Ok. Wednesday I had to handle wiring Klein's doctor office up. That job has been a nightmare-clusterfuck if I've ever seen one. God! Additionally, I had to have "that" meeting with Dan later on in the evening and THAT never makes me feel good. I had to cut him from full time pay to contractor status.... which I hate doing, but I've got to do what's in the best interest of Computer Techs if I expect Scott to let me do this job. If I'm gonna have the position, sometimes you gotta do the nasty things too to earn the position, and that's one of the nastier things I have to do. Thursday... I can't remember thursday. I think that's the day I had to spend all day doing bookkeeping and trying to get the bills out in the mail. (Neither of which got completed due to everything else that cropped up during the day.) Friday: Ugh.. I felt BAD Friday. I woke up with a horrible Hot-Flash, which Bannah dutifully reported to me could be attributed to one of a million things, NONE of which are particularly good. But when I finally did get moving around Friday, we got to working on eBay stuff and trying to get the custom quotes out and shipped to the eBay customers who were waiting for products and pricing. Last night April, Marcus, and I went to Longhorn for dinner, just for something different. It was pretty good. In my opinion it ranks about even with Lonestar. They say the steaks are better, but I'd put them about even. This steak was juicier...but didn't have any particular taste that made it outstanding to me... but what do I know, right? Then, April and I came home and made plans to play CoH all night. I called the guy we play with in SoCal and he met us online, along with some other friends we have regular sessions with and we played until about 2 AM, at which point I went to bed and read a book until about 4:30, then fell asleep. Today, my plans may be to go to Lowes and pick up the railing I need to make my closet organized into a library.. a REAL library. I'm not sure though. I think that may be more exertion than I truly feel up to today, so I may just plan it out and go do it tomorrow. SOOOO.. now you know what I've been up to. What have all YOU lurkers been up to out there in Scooby-Space?

What kind of eyes do you have?

Take the quiz: "What kind of eyes do you have? (with pictures)"

Eden
You have eden eyes. Eden is the color of water. Your eyes symbolize your great flexibility. You are a creative person. You can think of many good ways to get your point across to people as you have very good communication abilities. When someone feels down or is hurt, you have the remarkable ability to help them and heal them. If you have too little going on in your life, you may be withdrawn and depressed, timid, manipulative, unreliable, stubborn, or suspicious. Some words to describe you: peaceful, sincere, affectionate, tranquil, intuitive, trustworthy, pure, loyal, healing, and stable. Hmm, I think that sounds like me, it kinda looks like me. . . maybe.

Little Bit...I found a blog for you

...thought you might be interested in this one.

Just wanted to say Hi to everyone in Blog-o-land!

I just wanted to say hi to everyone out there! I've been feeling a little perky this evening, which is weird, since I've been "sick" all week (ladies-you know what I'm talking about). I'll just give a rundown of how my day went. . . . I got up early, 9:30 or so, WAY early for me! :) Then Little Bit came over with the Lil' Man, I swear he's just tooo cute! So we chatted and all while I was waking up, nothing like that first cup of coffee in the morning, thanks baby, I owe you for that! Then I went in to wait at the restaurant, since one of the girl's was sick. Had a pretty good day there, no terrible tippers, very pleasant customers, and a pretty easy day, not too busy. When I got home I brought my lunch with me and ate here, while Tommy and Scott tried to have a business meeting. . . . I don't even want to know what that was about. After lunch I go run some errands, and come back to get ready for a friend's jewelry party. Now I guess this is where the fun started. . . . . . I mean, who wants to be the one selling the jewelry? Not the one that host's the party, but the actual "saleswoman?" This poor woman had to get up in front of all of us, who ranged in age from 3 mos. to 55 yrs old, and play games and explain to us about her jewelry. Now, if any of you have ever been to one of these things, you know what the jewelry is like. It's cute and all, but you have to order it, then wait for it to be shipped to the host of the party, and then she has to get up with you for you to get it. . . . . which can mean a couple of weeks or so. But easy me, I feel so sympathetic to these poor people who have to resort to having parties to make money that I bought a pair of earrings. Now, they're really cute, and I don't have anything like them, but I seriously could have gotten a similiar pair at the mall for $5-10. I spent $26, for shipping, and tax, and all. Oh well, couldn't help it, I felt so bad that no one else bought anything, or wanted to have parties of their own. After the party, Megan, Tracy and I went to O'Cools, cause Backseat Romeo was playing, so we decided to go out for a few drinks. Nicole from Daytona's, joined us, as did a guy friend of Megan's. It was nice, but all of us wanted to call it an early night. Ed and Justin were doing a great job, as usual, and we had a round of drinks on one of the owners, since another bar's girl's decided to come hang out. :) When I got home, Tommy was already playing CoH, so I decided to join him. For once, we had a good team of people and accomplished a pretty tuff mission relatively easy! And we were done by around 2 am, which is extremely early for us! That leads me to now, it's quarter to three in the morning, and I guess I'm just rambling away to no one, or anyone that will pay attention. I know there hasn't been a lot of posting lately, but maybe I'll just start posting like this some too, just letting my brain run and do whatever it wants (ok, I'm so having a Tommy moment right now). Just wanted to say hi again to anyone that's out there, and thanks for paying attention this long, and I'll leave now and let everyone else get back to the more interesting things they have to do. . . . Love you all, have a great day, and a great weekend! Drop a note if ya want to say hi back!

Which Desperate Housewife are you?

Desperate Housewives I found this quiz on someone's blog, and thought, what the heck, I'll try it. I should be Gabrielle (I guess that's a better choice than the others?). Who are you? You could say that life's just about prett dresses and expensive gifts to you, but you're looking for something more. You'll find it someday, as long as you can stay out of trouble. And stay away from hot young gardeners. . . . Hmm, maybe that is a good description of me. . . . You know Tommy loves his plants! ;)

Joke for the Day

It's me again, coming to you with another "funny" I found blogging! It might be hard to understand at the end, but you should be able to get the picture! A Filipino Applies for a Job at Wal-Mart. An office manager at Wal-Mart was given the task of hiring an individual to fill a job opening. After sorting through a stack of resumes he found four people who were equally qualified. . . An American, a Russian, an Australian and a Filipino. He decided to call the four in and ask them only one question. Their answer would determine which of them would get the job. The day came and as the four sat around the conference room table the interviewer asked, "What is the fastest thing you know of?" Acknowledging Dave, the American on his right, the man replied, " A THOUGHT". It just pops into your head. There's no warning that it's on the way; it's just there. A thought is the fastest thing I know of." "That's very good!" replied the interviewer."And now you sir?" he asked Vladimir, the Russian. "Hmm.... let me see. A blink! It comes and goes and you don't know that it ever happened. A BLINK is the fastest thing I know of." "Excellent!" said the interviewer. "The blink of an eye, that's a very popular cliché for speed." He then turned to George, the Australian who was contemplating his reply. "Well, out at my dad's ranch, you step out of the house and on the wall there's a light switch. When you flip that switch, way out across the pasture the light in the barn comes on. Yep, TURNING ON A LIGHT is the fastest thing I can think of. "The interviewer was very impressed with the third answer and thought he had found his man. "It's hard to beat the speed of light" he said. Turning to Eleuterio, the Filipino, the fourth and final man, the interviewer posed the same question. Eleuterio replied, " Apter herring da 3 frevyos ansers sirrr, et's obyus to me dat the fastest thang known is Diarrhea." "WHAT!?" said the interviewer, stunned by the response. "O I can expleyn serrr ." said Eleuterio . " YOU SEE SERR, DA otherday I wasn't Peeeling so good and I run soo fast to the CR or bathroom, But, before I could THINK, BLINK, or TURN ON THE LIGHT, ay 'tang ina, I already had a big tae, ka-ka or poo-poo in my pants. Eleuterio is now the new "Greeter" at Wal-Mart.

Quick Note Good Morning

I've only got a minute before I have to go to New Bern for an emergency job at the last minute. I wanted to say hello to everyone. I've got a video conference with Cox Communications in Atlanta this afternoon, and then a meeting with Scott, a meeting with Dan, a server quote to spec out, and a trip to Raleigh for an install in the mornning, and an office building that has to be finished by tomorrow night. So, with that in mind, I'll try to stay on here as much as I can during the next 24 hours.... Take care... wish me luck...

Whats Up Everyone

Just thought I would drop in a tell everyone I said hello. I have been just about as busy as Tommy latly, as hard to believe as that is, but yet it still happened. Bike week has been awesome, I have seen it all this past week. Btween beautiful bikes and beautiful women, it has been great. Now that spring time is here more and more is starting to happen. More people (tourists), and more stores opening and restaraunts opening, so now we have more than 3 places to eat. And btw folks I am starting to look to buy a newer vehicle so anyone who knows where one is please let me know, and just keep it in mind.

Saturday is here again

Good morning all. I begin this diatribe to the collective etherspace from the comfort of my home-office. I have arrayed near me the potent goodness that is Krispy Kreme, accompanied with the usual cup of coffee. I hope this beautiful morning finds you all in good spirits. I, myself, have decided to forebear any actual "work" today and instead enjoy the solace that is my girlfriend. That, most likely, means a healthy dose of City of Heroes, supplemented with a large amount of coffee and munchies. It's been a really long week. I got back into town about 8:30 Thursday night. I had intended on posting Friday to the boards, but being out of town for 48 hours left my WAY behind on my work, and as usual, everyone is too lazy to do anything themselves, so they left me the issues to handle upon my return. Friday began much as it usually does. Half the team didn't show up for work on time, so I had to do my work as well as theirs, which is par for the course lately. I gave Tim the day off Friday because he had to go home to be with family. His Great Aunt died on the day we went out of town and he had to attend the funeral. So, those of you who see him, pass on your condolences as you see fit. Friday night was the usual, Scoobies and a little drama, but not too bad. April, Myself, Doc, Megan, Tracy, Nicole, Jenny, Marcus, Jo, some canadian guy, Charles, and a few others went down to Cafe Caribe to try the food last night and listen to the dueling pianos. As I suspected, the "downtown" fever has infected this fine establishment as well. When you add Rob LeGere and Tony Stone playing the pianos to the whole mix, any semblance of cultured entertainment went straight out the window. Instead it was dinner served over a rock concert atmosphere... very strange. The food was however, Great. Post Rhumba, April, Doc, Marcus, and I went back to the OC for a little familial comfort... and to get to a place where we could hear again. We spent about an hour there and then came back to the house. Coon Dog came over around 2ish, so that was a nice addition. Of course, since Doc was in town, she came over in a jiffy... lol. Tracy was apparently extraordinarily drunk, and decided that it would be fun if she called Doc 40 million times last night while he was out with us. So, needless to say, my night with Doc was less than enjoyable. He got pissed every 2 minutes because his phone kept ringing, or text messaging. Eventually, I gave up on the male bonding and went to lay in bed with a book and read awhile until I fell asleep. Apparently, even without a girlfriend, I'm not going to get to "hang out" with my best friend until the ex drama ceaces. All in all though, it was a good evening. Now I'm going to hop on the CoH server and see who's online. How was y'alls weekend this far? I know that Gecko and Natalie and a few others were at a party until late last night... how did it go? Talk to you soon. *poofing into the ether*

Hey all... a message from nowhere.

Well, our day is done. It's 11:20 PM wednesday night. We just got back to a hotel. Hal, Tim, Dan, and myself left Greenville at 4 AM this morning for a network job in Salem virginia, about 2 miles from the West virginia border. Since we're so far away from home and the cost to the customer would be so high to bring us back if there were a problem, I got us a hotel room for the night at the Hampton Inn. We're going to go back in the morning and pretty much "hang out" for 3 hours to see if the system works properly now that we've replaced almost every wire in the 25 thousand square foot facility. If so, we'll be leaving here about 11 or 12 tomorrow, which should put us in Greenville around 6 PM tomorrow night. I'm WAY too tired to write much more today. I got up at 3 AM, drove 6 hours, worked for 12 hours, did 2 hours of post-job billing, and now I'm done for the day. I love you all and I'll talk to you all tomorrow ( or soon after I suppose for some of you.). I hope you all have a good night. Love you Twitterpaited.... and I miss the rest of you. Later. PS: Ping Bot says hi to everyone. He's too lazy to post on his own... the friggin slacker.

Did you know? . . . . .

I was just next-blog-ing today, and came across an interesting blog. There were a lot of interesting "did you know" comments I just wanted to share. **Warning** This is not PG rated! If you get easily offended, please don't read. If, however, you are dying of curiousity, read on! Some Sex Trivia from "Area 51" Did you know?..."Ithyphallophobia" is a morbid fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis. Did you know?...According to a survey of sex shop owners, cherry is the most popular flavor of edible underwear. Chocolate is the least popular.

I sit by the sea watching the waves wash in and wash out again, I see the tears of joy, I see the tears of love and of pain; I look into the faces that the sea has taken, And the tears splash on my face as the waves are breaking; I begin to leave, but as I stand I awaken, To only realize that life is slipping away, One wave at a time.  Posted by Hello
These are the other two that have bloomed. I should have the 4th blooming by Sunday.

HI!

I just want to say "WOW!" it's absolutely gorgeous outside! Well, except that it is cloudy now, but today is a perfect weather day! This is what I wish for year round! Oh well, now back to the real world. . . . For those of you that don't know, Sunday is my birthday! 25 this year, yeah, you can say it, a quarter-of-a-century old, but I don't care. I think we are trying to do something with the gang on Sat., so if you're interested, let Tommy know. I have to work tonight at the bar, so I won't be able to talk to anyone. Can I just say again how pretty it is outside?! I love this time of year, and not just cause of my birthday! :) Ok, I promise, I'll stop. Sorry I haven't been around much blogging. My work schedule has been super busy for the past 3 weeks, and then we had Tommy's little girl this week, so I haven't tried to camp out in front of the computer too much, except for a little CoH here and there. Plus, I've started doing the Ebay bookeeping and accounting for Tommy, so that takes anywhere from 30 min. to 2 1/2 hours a day from my time. So far it's going pretty well, I think. No major cussings for screwing anything up, so I think it's fine. :) Well, gotta run, gotta get ready for work tonight. If ya get bored, come see me! If not, come see me tomorrow! :) Love ya'll!

Morning all.

Well, it's 10 AM and I'm on my first cup of the day. As I sit here and think about it, I've got a busy day ahead. I have two proposals to deliver and explain to a customer and then I have this job at Klein's to finish, which I'm going to do first today I think. How are the rest of you doing this morning?
