Stress at work and Coldstone moderation

Saturday, June 11, 2011      4 comments

I got a bit of a shock today at work. The day was going okay, though very busy. Then the boss's boss comes over and tells us that a certain person, that some of us got along pretty well with and some of us actually shared work with, no longer wo... Read more

Something to think about

Wednesday, June 08, 2011      2 comments

When you look at someone and judge them, your prejudices are showing. Also, what you choose to judge in others tends to fall in line with how you judge yourself. So when you make a judgement about someone with a comment, a joke, or even a though... Read more

Heat wave in Minnesota

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      1 comments

Today we hit 97* in the Twin Cities (MN), a new record. My car was HORRIBLY hot so I just wanted to race home, get out of my work clothes, and into a tank top and shorts. I got home, said "wonderful air conditioning!", went downstairs, and befor... Read more

I will never enjoy my birthday.

Monday, June 06, 2011      0 comments

I do not like my birthday. I never have. I doubt I ever will. But I'll share how my day was today. I slept in late, skipping breakfast. Then I went to Denny's for a free grand slam for lunch. Next came laundry (which lasted all evening) and... Read more

I need to put it on the line for a look-alike.

Friday, June 03, 2011      0 comments

If you don't know who Drew Seeley is, go search him. He is really talented and quite good looking. His girlfriend Amy Paffrath is one of my favorite people. I turn 30 on Sunday. I haven't had a boyfriend in 11 years (since July 00) and have... Read more

Ups and downs of my day

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      0 comments

Today has been a weird day. Parts of the day were great, while others were not. The rollercoaster of life, huh? I got my hair done last night. It is a little more red and a little shorter than I wanted, but the red tint will fade pretty qui... Read more

Making people think and being validated

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      3 comments

I got my hair done tonight - last time was October. With my new job, new doctors, new diagnoses, etc I couldn't keep up with coloring my hair. I had about 4" roots! So I got it dyed back to nearly my natural color and cut about 4-5" off. It is d... Read more

Don't forget the military families.

Monday, May 30, 2011      1 comments

While you take some time off today, sleep in, cook out, and relax, remember the reason for the holiday. Also remember those who sacrificed without going overseas. My father retired just over 2 years ago after 38 years in the National Guard ... Read more

Low-flow toilet woes

Saturday, May 28, 2011      0 comments

Do you have to clean your low-flow toilet often? Something I've noticed with my low-flow toilets is that often you don't realize it isn't totally emptying a full bowl. If you press the handle once quickly, it gets rid of anything small, but you ... Read more

Train of thought from an ice cream truck...

Thursday, May 26, 2011      0 comments

I've lived in my house for a year and a half (since Sep 09) and I just had a first... An ice cream van (not truck, VAN) just went by outside, with it's little happy jingle playing. I had the door to my deck (which faces the street) open for... Read more

I don't like being sick - my temperature drops

Wednesday, May 25, 2011      1 comments

I feel horribly sick, and it sucks. But this is what's weird about me getting sick: I don't get fevers anymore. When I feel sick, my temperature drops into the low 96* range. During high school my temperature was pretty steady at 96.8* (not a ty... Read more

Prejudice makes me so angry!

Tuesday, May 24, 2011      1 comments

I just need to make this point: it is really sad when people say (paraphrasing) 'Im a minority - I was bullied once many years ago - making a (hurtful) 'joke' about someone isnt prejudice - youre just too sensitive'. really? stepping up and... Read more

I'm doing a bit of ranting here.

Monday, May 23, 2011      3 comments

Obviously, the world didn't end. Of course, the guy actually predicted that the devout (estimated at about 200 million people) would rise, followed by a massive earthquake. The rest of the population would then have until Oct 21st to repent and ... Read more

Will the world end? I'm not convinced.

Thursday, May 19, 2011      1 comments

I wonder... if someone predicts the world will end, are they certain that the entire world will end, or just their own world? But if Saturday is the end, I never have to turn 30. haha The world is overdue for a polar shift. This much is tru... Read more

Next time, remember I'm not stupid.

Thursday, May 19, 2011      1 comments

I am smarter than people give me credit for. I wouldn't say I'm incredibly smart, I just pay attention and remember things. Yet people tend to treat me like I'm incredibly young and just plain stupid. It has been this way since kindergarten when... Read more
