Tidbits


Some days you just have a bunch of random stuff to put out there.  This is one of those days.

********

I have a real corporate-like-Dilbert job now.  I have never worked for a big corporation before.  It has it's benefits and drawbacks.  I am not sure how I feel about it yet

********

Every week we have "casual Friday" at work.  Last Friday, while standing in my closet and staring blankly at my work clothes,  I got a little too excited when I realized it was causal Friday and I could wear jeans.  I know sometimes life is all about the "little things,"  but I think I need a little more excitement in my life if causal Friday is a highlight of the day.

********

Over the holidays I wrote a rant about some rather rude travelers and put it out there that this behavior needed to stop.  I recently just got back from some cross-country travel with the airlines, and while it was not as bad as over the holidays I see that some very special members of the public at large are refusing to change.  So allow me to get back on my soap box and repeat myself:

For one, PLEASE get up out of your seat when the person next to you needs to get up.  Making me crawl over you is awkward for both of us.  And no, picking your feet up and putting them on your seat DOES NOT HELP.

Also, I just want to let you know that I am probably going to be taken down by the secret airplane marshal guy the next time I see someone CLIPPING their FINGERNAILS on a plane or other public place (except then it would be me getting taken down by the police).  Seriously, I cannot sit by idly and let this happen.  I will be forced to attack if this behavior continues.  There aren't many things in this world that gross me out.  So, kudos for finding one.  Now, please stop.

********

Despite our best efforts, I have recently come to terms with the fact that my dog is a menace to society.  I still love him to pieces.

********

Planning a wedding is even less fun than you would think.  I understand the draw to eloping now. Just imagine  a few people on a beach...no wait...scratch that.  Mr. Man would die from sun exposure.  Make that just a few people under a veranda overlooking some majestic view.  Or maybe on the pirate ship in Vegas.I totally get it.  In the end all the planning will be worth it I am sure....(repeat until it is true). 

********

We just booked our honeymoon to Italy using miles.  Soooo excited about the trip.  Two weeks of eating and drinking our way through Italy sounds like the perfect way to start a marriage. 

********

Spring time in California kicks the ass of spring time in the Pacific Northwest.  And yes, I am gloating.  And yes, its STILL better even though we had a record breaking 21 days of rain here in March.

********

Springtime veggies, like asparagus, popping up in the farmers market are one of the little things that ARE totally worth getting excited about.  Finding some yummy little ones yesterday at the lunch time farmers market was the highlight of my day.

********

Ummmmm...this is embarrassing because I don't have any kids to blame it on...but I have pink eye.  WTF?

********

Thanks for listening!  Feel free to vent, tell me about acceptable and not acceptable highlights of your day, the weather, and anything else on your mind.  It's not a conversation without ya!  (Plus, without you it's just me talking to myself and that is weird :) )

I laughed out loud several times while reading this. You are truly gifted. You are solidifying my unexcitement about marriage. Thanks that's gonna save me a lot of money! When I read about your honneymoon excitement I like the line, "eating and drinking our way through Italy." I imagined you two as Mr. and Mrs. PacMan with a little veil and a little bowtie and top hat chomping your way through a boot-shaped maze. That's probably what it's going to be! That is so exciting by the way!

I love your Blog aka I love you!

Thanks chica! I should clarify that I do want to be married...I am just discovering that there is probably a reason that I am not an event planner. :) Anyway, I love you too and we need to hang out again soon!

oh my god hahhahahaha.

You have to tell me what porter did recently. I love that little knucklehead. And I HATE when people climb over me on the way to the bathroom on a plane. I spent a transatlantic flight where the woman next to me insisted on climbing over me. She practically wouldn't let me get up! It was terrible.

The tidbits are a hoot! (Except for pink eye. That just sucks)
I sure do miss you girl! I wish I was there to help with the wedding shenanigans. Oh, here's a tip. Throw around the fact that you are on you honeymoon anywhere you can. You'll probably get some free stuff and you'll get oooh'd and ah'd all over the place. : )

The other day I was at a meeting with about 10 people and one guy at the table pulled out his nail clipper and started clipping his nails! I sh$t you not!
