Actually had someone initiate a conversation with me at the QT today. He must not be from Nebraska. We discussed the non-stop storms and the lousy summer, thus far. Very cordial. Guess my sunshiny disposition and smile encouraged him to come out of his shell. Woo-hoo!
I am glad someone was nice, because this morning was a disaster at home. I woke up late, after a night of tossing and turning – only to find out that two giant unnamed dogs had escaped from the basement in the night and tore the house apart. Garbage everywhere. I pray to high Heaven that neither of those dogs 'marked' the new carpet – or else my parents may go ballistic. I had to wake up my brother (and his girlfriend) to have them clean up since I was running late for work.
Poor little Ebie – having to hang out with such riff-raff. (*actually, I am just glad she was locked in my room so she couldn't join in the 'fun'.) Got in the car and realized that my blurry vision was because my contacts were in the wrong eyes. Exhaustion is a bee-yatch! I had to stop for caffeine on my way to work since I could barely keep my eyes open – even after switching the contacts.
Once at work, I realized that I have three days left of a personalized cubicle. I was informed yesterday that when we relocate to the new area, I am not permitted to hang fabric on my cubicle walls. Supposedly it is distracting! Distracting from what? The beta fish, plants, cartoons, magazine pictures, and decorations on everyone else's desk???? Yes, that makes pure logical sense. My grey fabric and black border ribbon is such a fother mucking distraction! Bloody Hell! How will people ever work with such a BOLD statement on my desk?
There are vendors in the building today – and three of them are sitting in my row, next to me. One of them has conversed more with me in one morning than anyone on my team has for the past 8 days I have been here. Seriously, people!
I know that I seem to have a negative attitude – but truly, I am so grateful for all my good friends – even though 95% of them don't live within 500 miles of here. Hee hee They keep me even tempered and forward-thinking.
Tomorrow, Ebie and I are going to the dog park – unless the sky continues to pour a deluge of water upon the city. Then I don't know what we will do. Though she does have a Day Care temperament interview on Friday afternoon. Yea!!!!!
I hope to start moving furniture into my new place on Friday afternoon after work. Perhaps I will eventually be able to move in. Only 22 or 23 (if my manager actually responds to my time-off request, I will know) days until I am back in Tejas for the 4th of July weekend!!!!!
My life ROCKS! No really, it does. Really!

PERSONAL NOTE TO A FRIEND: Steer clear of whores, malaria, and rabid dogs! Send my regards to Bollywood!
