Q&E Babble

Okay, I give.   I am doing it.   I miss PPWM too much.

I want to babble.   I think you all want to babble.  So let’s babble here and then go back to PPWM when they finally get us fixed.   I know, it’s discouraging now, but I am too optimistic for my own good.   I do think iVillage will get this mess fixed.   One day. 

For those not on FB, Shelly is monitoring Waylon, debating on a trip to Pitt.   He ran a fever all day yesterday and most of the night.   At her last check in, he’s down to 99.   She’s calling the coordinator this morning.

I had my work party last night.   I took a platter of Jalapeno Cheese Grits.   I have never had 6 people ask me for a recipe before.   I heard they were, “on point” and “ready.”  I love it when I bring the most popular dish.   There wasn’t a scrap left.  

Off to get dressed for work.   As of 3:00 today I am done until January 2nd.   And then I can start counting down for my spring break beach trip.

Kudo's to everyone who are eating better and exercising more....Keep up the good work gals.... I am a sloth.... I have no motivation to exercise at all.  Although... I am getting a good work-out at work lugging & lifting boxes everywhere and then cleaning them and putting the crap away... then hauling off the boxes to the janitors closet. 

I know I probably shouldn't be but I was kind of irritated and shocked to hear my little bossman say something about the boxes that still need to be put away.  I worked for over half of my lunch hour and 2 hours after that putting away 8 boxes of crap that was stacked on the table in our conference room (not to mention that I came in on Sunday and worked 5 hours putting away 9 boxes of stuff).  I don't know what he expects of me... I guess I need a costume... a Wonder Woman costume.... so I can keep up with my every day work AND unpack this place. 

I don't know if I'm just doing more walking and physical work in our new area, but I swear this place is hotter than my old office on the 11th floor.  One good thing is that I could open a window here if I need to.  I have been sorely tempted but I think others would have a cow if I did.  I just wish the ones who would have a cow could feel a series of hot flashes and realize that it is almost a panic attack when I get one (or a series of them which seems to be happening a lot lately).  If I wouldn't get in trouble, I swear I'd stand up and take my pants off too!  That's what I do at home to get cool quick... lol. 

Mel, be sure to let us know what happens at the dr and also your due date!

Missy.... glad you are still hanging in there with us... i hate that some of us are still having problems here but even though some of them are off and on, it seems like things are getting a little better....

The other day when I got the "YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO POST" message, I just hit REFRESH and then I was taken to the post page and was allowed to post!!  So, I thought I'd just tell ya'll that so when you get some weird messages, maybe (if you haven't already) try just hitting REFRESH and that might work for you.  I was glad it did for me.

Susan... I meant to comment on your "Don't go Bacon my heart - I couldn't if I Fried" picture but completely forgot.... I loved it!!!  I cracked up and sent it to my dad... he likes bacon too.... not as much as far*ting though... LOL  Speaking of far*ting.... I was watching "Off the Rockers" or something like that last night with Betty White... it's kind of a strange show but it's almost like Candid Camera where this group of older folks do weird things to people out in the public and there are hidden cameras filming them. 

Anyway... they were in a grocery store and over the loud-speaker someone said "Who cut the cheese in the bakery area?... repeat, WHO CUT THE CHEESE IN THE BAKERY AREA?"  I am not positive it was the bakery area but they showed a bunch of shoppers reactions... I was cracking up... I hurridly hit record so next time my dad was over I could show it to him.  He also loved the JAG episode I showed him where the Admiral was being flown in a fighter jet and had to fa*rt... he ended up accidentally ejecting himself from the plane and getting stranded in the mountains during a snow storm!

Okay, I better get back to work..... sorry to go on and on about nothing much... I guess I am like the Seinfeld show... lol

PS:  Apparently iVillage doesn't like the word FA*RT because I had to remove my inappropriate language in order to make my post acceptable.  HOW STUPID!

OMG Daisy, you're cracking me up this morning. We watch that Betty White show. It's funny. I have it DVR'd. Haven't watched it yet.

Oh, and your boss should appreciate you unpacking the place. Sheesh. I wouldn't mind you opening a window....I can't stand to be hot.I sleep with 2 fans every night.

Anyone going to watch American Idol tonight? We will see how all the judges are tonight. Not a fan of Nicki Manaj.

I don't know about the rest of you but when I take my pants off at home it IS NOT to get cool!!!!  In fact the direct opposite can happen!

BAHAHAHA!  You ladies and your dirty talk.  lol

Missy - they were interviewing a guy on the radio this morning.  He made it to Hollywood and they came to his hometown and filmed, so they are expecting a few minutes of airtime.  His name is Caleb Carl Flynn.  His hometown is 1 exit south of where I work.  Pretty neat to have it that close to home!  I could care less about who the judges are, because I don't watch the show, BUT Nicki Manaij (sp) could disappear and I wouldn't care.

Sandy, you are too funny!! I don't know if I'll watch AI or not... I am not a big Nicky Minije (?) either! I can't believe it's still on the air actually... after Simon left, I thought it might get cancelled.

I was only being honest Ladies!

I will probably watch AI but I do find all the early stuff kind of boring.  I am much more to get involved once they get to Hollywood.

I was going to comment about Daisy's pretty winter sig (with the church) but then I scrolled up and saw one of her posts with her Christmas stable sig.

There have been complaints about the profanity filter going overboard on the Help board. I had seen some actual dirty words posted, so I added a post about how some of the biggies are slipping through. Apparently words like  s ex,  f art,  li bido and period are getting stopped. Weird.

Evening ladies:-) Sandy sorry about all the snow, hope it melts quickly... Tracy your vacation sounds wonderful! Potty training day 3 went off without a hitch, okay so the kid doesn't like panties so she is naked under a night gown at home, and wears a pull up out in public(but she didn't pee or poo in it) but for day 3 I figure thats pretty good... Tomorrow I have to scrub my house, she is having a birthday party Friday....she will be 3 on Saturday!! Wow! Where does the time go? Other than that nothing big going on, just hanging around waiting for David to go back to work so we can get back into a routine...
