Happy Halloween!

A man was walking home alone late one foggy night, when behind him he hears:



Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him




Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him




He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him. However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping...




on his heels, the terrified man runs. Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps. With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door. Bumping and clapping toward him. The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup! Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the casket... and........

The coffin stops.

I know! I know! Worst Joke Ever. But it made me smile... Happy Halloween....

Case of the Mondays

My office is currently dark for some reason but it's rather pleasant.  This weekend was relaxing.  Still unpacking - why is this taking me so long?  Well... a few reasons. 

  1. I have a lot of boxes and a lot of stuff.
  2. Every box I open smells like Kody and his apartment.  It makes me hesitant to open them. Memories come flooding back of my life a few months ago.  Who wants to go through that again?!?
  3. My obsession with having everything go into the townhouse neat and organized slows me down.  However, I think this is a good thing.

I did find some time to start uploading pictures that I used to have on here. (Also fixed the bug from the posts below with some help.)  If you look to the right ---> you will see the album list I have started.  The only trip I have up there is Boston from last year - only 10 pictures... I have lots more to go from that trip.  But it's one of my favorites.  My mom is giving me a cd with 251 pictures from the wedding on it.  Hopefully I will find a few good ones to put up here.  Until then.. take a look at the creepy graveyard! 

Free Speech For All

This country is based on the fact that we have free speech.  Just because I voice my opinion that the war in Iraq is wrong DOES NOT mean I am not proud to be an American.  Just because I believe our president is an idiot DOES NOT mean I should go live in France.  It means I am exercising my right to free speech.  Sad to say, but a good portion of this country is ignorant and uneducated or miseducated.  Bush speaks to those people.  I am not completely liberal and I am certainly not completely conservative.  But I do have an opinion and just as I have always done since I was able - I will vote. 

John Mayer - "Waiting on the World to Change" 

Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could

Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's hard to beat the system
When we're standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That's why we're waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's not that we don't care,
We just know that the fight ain't fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Out Sick.

Be back on Monday...

I've got a headache the size of Canada and to top it off I forgot my glasses at home. None of the painkillers are working. At this rate I don't know how I'm going to make it through the day.

Headache Haze

Still slightly blinded... but it's okay. I just heard from my mom - my sister is going to be in town overnight on her way to Kauai for her honeymoon. Apparently we are all going out to sushi after work so that should be nice. I can't seem to concentrate on much. Meh.

Hide under a rock...

A vendor, a type of glorified salesman, embarrassed the hell out of me today. After my boss left the conference room they decided to walk right into a director's office. Being that I was far away from his office, I couldn't see them. Ugh. I have a headache...

Nothing - Skip down one...

You turn off the engine,
close the door,
shut and lock the outside,
close the blinds,
take off the glasses, heels and put down the purse,
put the phone away,
turn off the movies, the music and the games,
turn off the people,
close the instant message boxes,
wash the makeup away,
take down the hair,
pull back the blankets,
arrange the pillows,
slide under the covers,
read a book,
eventually turn off the lights...
and you are alone.

Empty house, empty bed, empty life.

Must Laugh.


I wrote almost a month ago about a position I was interviewing for.  This whole time I just assumed that I missed out and wasn't chosen.  Today I got word that althought they haven't filled the position yet, I am still in the running.  In fact, all the feedback they got from the interviewing panel was really good.  *does a tiny jig*

Slow Start...

This morning was extremely strange.  I kept pushing snooze on my alarm and falling right back to sleep.  This almost never happens and subsequently I was late to work.  In the rush of things I somehow managed to forget my work badge so I was even more late than intended.  I hate being late!!

Anyway, the day has dragged.  It's perfect and sunny here as always and I'm just dreaming of weather!  Give me rain, snow, hail, anything!  I don't care.  Just give me a day that isn't sunny and warm.  Can weather be monotonous?  Stupid California and it's stupid sunshine!
