How do you say "English" in French???

Steven is teaching himself French online at work...we seriously need some work around here.

Those Chinese have it all figured out...

Should I be concerned by a tag that says "100% Genuine Faux Leather"?

Christmas comes but once a year

Traci took a trip to St. Louis for work last week, and came back with a present for little ol' me! Go to, and type "bra purse" into the search engine for a variety of examples similar to my present. Have I told you that Traci rocks???

These are a few of my favorite things...

1. Ridiculously long, scorching hot showers that leave the water heater empty.

2. Clay face masks and cucumber eye patches

3. Red wine

4. Charlie Brown holiday specials airing on ABC

I made it!

Matt's mom likes my chicken pot pie. I'm so in.

That had to hurt...

Matt and I went to "Shaun of The Dead" last night...Possibly the goriest movie I have ever seen. Go see it!

Drinking at work 101

Email from Matt - working out the evening's plans:

We will fly to Italy fueled by the juice of three onions. We shall land in Tuscany, where we can snack on young parmesan. We will grab some wine, and burrow through the Earth's crust to deepest, darkest Africa. We will love green things, and taste bright colors. The spectrum will span from honey to molasses. We will evaporate into the ether and we will drink people's dreams like wine. There will be much rejoicing. There will be no pain.

In the words of Paris Hilton...

I'm going to a friend's birthday party tonight, and I thought I might get all dolled up for the occasion. I had to work today, so I brought all the provisions in. Make-up, heels, strappy velvet dress, cute jacket...

It was cold this morning, so I bundled up in a cozy turtleneck, jeans and thick socks. I now have "sock tread" on my legs, to go with my snazzy dress. That's hot.

I have a new suit!

Ever notice that pants with back zippers feel like they're going on backwards? It's not just the zipper...they're shaped backwards. Eeew.

People actually buy this???

I normally shop alone, because...Well, girls are lame. But Traci's different - I suspect that she's some sort of imposter girl, because I have a really nice time with her. Traci - YOU ROCK.

In any case...Imposter or no imposter, Traci and I went shopping last night. I suspect that in the end, I had a better time than she did, but I won't go into it, because it was that in-between time that was great.

We went to Ross for our shopping extravaganza, a store that I loathe in most cases. You can't FIND anything there! They are so freakin' unorganized, that I usually get frustrated and just leave. My biggest irritation is finding really great shoes, only to learn that they should be in a section for shoes that are two sizes smaller. Ghah!!!

Initially the trip was pretty uneventful...Until we reached the underwear...There are some crazy undies out there, people! There was this tiny pink see-thru thong, with - get this - pompons hanging off the back. These are not panties that you wear. These are panties that guys buy, so they can hang them on their bedroom wall. I'm sure they make for a great tale of conquest, but please please keep them out of my garment selection!

On second thought...Don't. They were really funny.

New email moment!

From Mom:

Earlier Daniel started talking about how we should have Chun King for dinner tonight. Ew!!! Then he decided to turn up the radio which was playing a Dwight Yoakum song. Eeww! Eeww!
We are NOT having Chun King for dinner tonight and we are NOT listening to Dwight Yoakum during the dinner hour! EW!

You done been schooled!

Last weekend Matt and I were scooting around W. Seattle, when we became stuck at a stop light next to a car of highschool kids.

HK to us: Scooter. Scooooo-ter! Woo-hoo! Scoooooooter!!! Yeah! (etc...)

Matt to me: Yeah, I'm riding a scooter - with a hot chick on the back. He's in a car, with 2 other dudes.

I'm Number 1!!!

I won! I won!!! I won the Mr. T video that I posted in an earlier entry! I'm so excited...We do a Secret Santa gift exchange every year at work - my recipient is going to be so lucky!

Final Thoughts

In Bush's closing statement of last night's debate, he said that he has a 10 year plan which will end our dependence on foreign energy.

He seems to be well on his way toward fulfilling that promise already. How many more countries do you suppose he can take over in 10 years?

Sucka' fool!

Everyone must bid on my new favorite Ebay item!

Email of the day!

Today's email conversation with Matt:

Me:After work today, can you please run to the store? I need a few packages of semisweet chocolate chips, and a few packages of reeces peanut butter chips. Oh, and a bag of cotton balls. Also, a few packages of shortening sticks.

Thank you.

Matt:Mmmnnnn... Cotton ball cookies!

Me: Hmm, yeah, I guess I should've saved that one for the end of my list, huh?

Movin' on up

They've replaced the tampon/pad dispensers in the women's restrooms at work. Now there isn't anywhere to put your quarter. You pull the knob, and the item of your choice flies out. I see you with that blank stare - yeah you. Don't you realize what I'm saying? FREE TAMPONS. Sheesh.

I love The Stranger

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 The week ends with more punishment for Florida, as Jeanne, the fourth hurricane in six weeks, sliced across the state, reravaging areas recently traumatized by hurricanes Ivan and Frances and killing at least five people. Until today, the Associated Press reports, no state had suffered a four-hurricane pounding in one season since Texas in 1886--which proves one thing: God watched the last election. Condolences to the extravagantly victimized people of Florida, all praise to God and His vengeful weather.

I HATE bugs!!!

I had bug dreams last night. Lots of them. The most memorable were the one about the bees and the one about the spiders.

The bees had built a nest outside my front door. The damn pests kept getting in the house somehow! I couldn't leave the house! I had to call in sick for fear of being swarmed if I went outside!

The spiders were all over inside my house! I literally couldn't leave my bed because the floor was moving, there were so many of them! The cats and I were chillin' on the bed, trying to figure out what to do, when they started climbing up the bed posts, onto the mattress. I called 911, but eventually just climbed out the window next to my bed.

I think the presidential debate affected my sleep. More on that later.

Simple pleasures

This morning a woman got onto the bus with her toddler son. He was very excited about all of the semi trucks that he was seeing on his bus ride, and yelled out every time he saw one. "A truck! Another truck! I see another truck, Mommy!" I love it when kids get so excited about stuff, especially when they pronounce their "tr's" as "f's".
