Bits and pieces

First, I want to take a minute to thank the people who expressed concern for my health/well-being in yesterday's comments. Sometime soon I'll delve into why I think I can handle a family vacation this time around, as well as my escape plans. In the meantime, just know that I do have better coping mechanisms in place now and the situation will be much better than the trip that caused me so much stress last May.

Today is just a day of tidbits.
  • Work is killing me. The company that hosts our website is doing updates to our database server during business hours. Absolutely brilliant inspired ridiculous. This means our website is mostly down so my phone is ringing off the hook and my Inbox is filling up with error messages. I thought the issue was resolved 2 hours ago but it's back, sorta like that chili I had for dinner last night.
  • It is so cold outside that the air decided to eat my face when I walked into the office. My cheeks (not THOSE cheeks!) were aching because they were so frozen.
  • I'm finally recovering from my plague. I think magic cough syrup is more the champion than the antibiotics. It's nice to be able to sleep again!
  • Why can't Simon Baker ever be in any good movies? I've rented three now and they were all horrible. So hot but such awful films. I guess I should stick to The Mentalist.
  • My boss is more full of drama than usual today. And I'm not so much in the mood to put up with the manufactured dilemmas.
  • I'm more excited about new episodes of Last Restaurant Standing, Hell's Kitchen and Solitary than I am Lost and 24 at the moment (though I'm still watching Lost and 24 faithfully and enjoying them).
  • My hair is very poofy.
  • I'm tired of people mocking the Slanket. I'm even more tired of people talking about the inferior Snuggie. It's cheaper for a reason, people!
  • I have many items to complete today and I've already wasted over two hours due to my superb procrastination skills.
  • Two people gave me awards that I never collected. One had something to do with a butterfly. And it's been so long now that I can't find them. But thank you just the same!
Tomorrow is my 100th post. Quite the milestone. I'm going to celebrate by calling in sick, drinking margaritas for lunch, and punching my neighbor in the face. Who's with me?

I'm SO with you. Margaritas and neighbor-punching is just what I need!

Bella@That damn expat said...

Count me in!

A. said...

Same here - I'm totally in!

andy said...

If it involves punching people in the face, I'll be right over.

And the "slanket"? Someone else had posted about something similar, but I can't remember what it was called. But if it's fleecy and warm I'm ALL OVER IT.

My boss is awesome. Sorry.

word verification: lowliest

definition: duh!...but is that an omen of things to come? Crap.

love ya:)

Isn't there a national "drink margaritas and punch someone" day? Well there should be, anyway.

p.s. I hope you didn't think I was making fun of the slanket with my tweet yesterday - I was actually serious. I thought of it when I saw the "other thing" on the Today Show.

wow...sounds like a great way to celebrate your 100th post!! Give me some directions and i will round a few people up!! lol

kimber p said...

neighbor punching should be an olympic sport, well come to think of it, so should Margarita drinking!

Angie..this stupid blogger thing said I had to try and repost because someone else was trying to post a reply at the same exact time I was..lol I had to go back and retype the entire thing because of YOU!!! lmao

That computer thing is so annoying! I pay all my bills online and don't know how many times I haven't been able to get to one website or another because of "scheduled maintenance." Hello?! Why not schedule it at 2 AM?!

I think it's just because they'd have to pay the tech people overtime for working overnight ... although most of the tech people I've known are also part-vampire and prefer the overnight hours...

Juliet Colors said...

Ooh, congrats on approaching your 100th! I look forward to reading it. I also look forward to hearing all about your survival plan for the family "vacation." I did one of those last summer; it involved an 8-hour plane ride, then driving to visit family in three different states over the course of a single week. Never again.

Call Me Cate said...

You are a very violent group. Maybe that's why I <3 you all so much.

Grand Pooba said...

Ha! Loved your little tid bits! Poofy hair is good.

Thanks for thinking I'm not a hooker in real life. 'preciate cha!

Can't wait for you big post!

Jade said...

Oh, WOW!!! Margarita's and punching the neighbor in the face!!!I'm there! Can we roll him up in a Snuggie and kick him down a hill when we are done!?!?

Angela said...

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know that my hubby isn't the only one who doesn't move things. that really runs me crazy.

joanofalltrades said...

LOL! Congrats on 100 tomorrow! I've been staring at this screen for 7 hours and I am peeling my eyelids back. Thanks for providing me some laughter.

Laura Kay said...

I want a slanket!

Melissa B. said...

Congrats in advance, Cate, for Post #100. What a milestone! We're gonna have temps in the 60s all weekend; the BEST for what ails ya!

melanie @ don't expect much said...

I had the boss issues yesterday... when you do the neighbor punching, just picture his/her face instead... at least that's what worked for me... ;)

Aunt Spicy said...

Count me in! It sounds like a perfect plan...I am not much of a puncher but I can toss a good verbal blow! Congrats on the almost 100th blog!

The Wife O Riley said...

You can come and get the award that I have for you right now. (Just in time for your 100th post!!!)

I have to pick up my daughter at 3:30 then I'll be over. Save some of the neighbors for me!

The Blonde Duck said...

I hope you feel better soon! Add some pie with the margaritas!

Hula's Secret Blog said...

Poofy hair, huh? That's never good.

Yaya said...

soulbrush said...
