OH MY GOSH YEAR END AT THE OFFICE!!! Long hours, sleepless nights, working on Saturdays...love it!

Excuses To Use When Caught Sleeping At Work

-They told me at the blood bank that this might happen.
-This is just a 15 minute power nap like they raved about in that time management course you sent me to.
-I was working smarter - not harder.
-Whew! I must have left the top off the whiteout.
-I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm!
-This is one of the seven habits of highly effective people!
-I was testing the keyboard for drool resistance.
-I'm in the management training program.
-I'm actually doing a Stress Level Elimination Exercise Plan (SLEEP). I learned at the last mandatory seminar you made me attend.
-This is in exchange for the six hours last night when I dreamed about work!
-I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work related stress. Do you discriminate against people who practice Yoga?
-No! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem.
-The coffee machine is broken....
-Someone must have put decaf in the wrong pot.
-Boy, that cold medicine I took last night just won't wear off.
-Ah, the unique and unpredictable circadian rhythms of the workaholic!
-I wasn't sleeping. I was trying to pick up my contact lens without my hands.
-The mail courier flipped out and pulled a gun so I was playing dead to avoid getting shot.
-Geez, I thought you (the boss) were gone for the day.

When I first went to college I applied to the CIA to see if I could do my undergraduate there, but unfortunately I never heard a phone call back. Oh well. But here is a funny story my sister sent me.

The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all of the background checks, interviews, and testing were done, there were 3 finalists... Two men and a woman.

For the final test, the CIA agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun. "We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside of this room, you will find your wife sitting in a chair...Kill Her!!!" The man said, "You can't be serious. I could never shoot my wife!" "Then you're not the right man for this job."

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the man came out with tears in his eyes, "I tried, but I can't kill my wife." The agent said, "You don't have what it takes. Take your wife and go home."

Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from her brow, and said, "This gun is loaded with blanks. I had to beat him to death with the chair."

MORAL: Women are evil. Don't mess with them!!!!!

So you think you can dance

AH!!! I am so nervous! I watch this show religiously (minus one episode that I had to work through)...but oh my gosh! My kid sister dances and I think of her each time I see them dancing. Each week they draw from a hat their dance they have to perform that week. So even though you may be "contemporary" (similar to what Janet dances) you may have to perform "hip hop".
This show is so awesome to watch, my favorites are Dmitry (Russian) and Ashlee (who is from the BIG D WHOOP!)... although they weren't originally paired together.

Every Wednesday they perform and every Thursday two people are voted off. Tonight at 8:30 I should find out the outcome. But if you ever catch the show, contemporary is what I would classify Janet's style as. And for those of you who haven't caught on, Janet is my 17 year old sister, hardly a "kid" really. But she isphenomenal. It is done barefoot, very moving and soft. She just recently realized this talent and I hope it is something she will remain doing while in college. (Yeah she's the do-all sister, she does Mock Trial, Dance, Debate, College Courses, Scrapebooking, Seeds of Peace, Leo's Club (Lions Club for younger adults), National Honor Society, Key Club and the list goes on and on...basically all the things I'm not good at.)

Dancing till Daylight.

For those of you that wonder what I mean when I talk about country-western dancing, I thought I'd show you what I mean. This is the Aggie website for our dance team. And yes I can dance like they do, although probably not a coordinated, learned it from the best though!

While at A&M, my friends and I used to go dancing every Thursday and Saturday. While taking classes this summer I thought I would take a friend of mine, Kristen, to go out dancing. I'll post later how it goes.

So, I went to the dentist today...found out I had a cavity BETWEEN two of my teeth. Suck booty man, so I guess it's back to the dentist tomorrow to get it fixed.

Anyhow on a side note, I'm currently taking some courses while I work this summer, gotta get ready for my masters and back into the studying habit. It is hard, let me tell you! I have papers due every other day and it's also year end this month at work. If I stop writing for a month, I probably just died in front of my computer, key markings forming into my forehead.

My goal is to get my masters next year, but unfortunately since I studied Sociology/Psychology for my undergrad, I'll have to take a few accounting courses to get me ready for the big wig school.

Blah Blah

Small, Medium, Large for those "Starbucks coffee lovers". I love Ill Will Press!

First Post

This is my first ever blog and so I suppose we shall see how it goes.

First, a little about me other then what you can read in my profile...

I was born in Baltimore, MD and grew up in Abilene, TX. I went to Texas A&M University in College Station and earned a Bachelors in Sociology with a minor in Psychology. I currently work for IBM and am dating this totally hot Danish guy named Mads.

We spend most of our hard earned money traveling the world, so we shall see where our next big trip takes us.

Yep, well that's about it for now.

Oh, and Je have en hundehvalp! Men Mads vil ikke lade mig få en.
