April 29, 2010

Just wow, yeah? I am parked in Timbuktu. So….yeah. Yesterday was completely insane, neurotic, crazy, mad mad mad.
When I came up here last night to pick up something from my desk, I fully intended to send out a dOrk fOrces, but….we were busy and I stayed to kill some calls from the queue. Sorry.

Whew. Woozy. No one came with me to donate blood, either. First time for me. Didn't realize only drinking coffee for breakfast would not be such a hot idea on a day when you're going to donate blood. Thank you, Keith and Bryan, for the juice and water. My head does not feel shrunken and dried out like a prune anymore.

Today is Poem in Your Pocket Day. I ♥ this.

My Life is Average

Today I nearly choked on a lifesaver. Oh irony, you never disappoint. MLIA

Today I saw a tiny bug flying around my desk. It landed on my cheek. I slapped myself in the face so hard it left a hand print. The bug got away. MLIA.

Today, I put my banana in the microwave to see what it tasted like when it was heated. The stem caught on fire. MLIA.

Today, I was chewing gum while at a stop light. I blew the largest bubble ever and frantically tried to get the attention of the guy in the next car. He looked, just in time to see the bubble burst all over my face. MLIA

Funny Pics
from the collection

from the life & times of jessi bean

Went to the gas station yesterday, all pumps were down, so I went to another one. When I went inside for my change, the poor lady behind the counter accidentally voided my ticket. Then the manager came out and started getting after her, and I ended up arguing with the manager because she was trying to blame the lady (it was an accident, woman!), and she didn't want to give me my change (if it had been under $10, I probably just would have walked out). Then I go to the library I normally go to to print stuff out, and they increased the cost per page to 25 cents, so I headed to FedEx Kinko's on 410 & Bandera….and it was gone.

So I go out to Castroville library (thank you, 10 cents per page), and print out over 60 pages. I realize that the last document I need is in my desk…here. So I drive out here with my son, and CA was down, so people were off the phones. He got a packet of poptarts (thank you, Kenny), and got to play with the blow up hammer. I think my son thinks that my official career is a party.

My nephew…literally used the phrase…"This girl I have the hots for." Talk about a throwback. He's 17. He's using the phrase "hots." I died laughing.
