Bored? Not me...


I won't talk in depth about last night, except to give profuse thanks to the powers that be and tell you the following:

  • my assignment got canceled and my cute blue snow covered SUV stayed parked in front of my home the entire night.
  • nobody used the F word or threatened me or my colleagues and this represents a significant change in what I've dealt with for two nights in a row. Yes, Mr. Verbally Abusive Misogynist, I speak of you. Did you not think we'd notice you had no spine to speak to the men the way you spoke to the women? If you're wondering, Mr. M is NOT the client and thus lacks a really good excuse.
  • I should give thanks to the mean man though. Because of him, I've made more fig vodka and now feel ready for anything he can throw at me--unless of course it's a punch.
  • my brand new Blackberry came loaded with 5 new games and interfered with knitting.
  • I am 25% of the way to having enough money in the Texas Hold-Em game on BB to buy into the World Series of Poker.
  • virtual poker.
  • hey, I can do what I please on nights like the one I had because my paperwork is always caught up. I do not go to bed until it's finished because I can't stand waking up to leftover work--especially if said work involves subjects like bullet point #2.
  • it's good to be the windshield for a change
While it looks like a beautiful sunny day in Detroit, the high will only reach 15 degrees (F). A bit on the chilly side and a good day to stay in my fleece jammies until I absolutely have to leave the house. That's the plan anyway.

I hope your plans are good, too, but with less inclement weather.

Fleece jammies sounds like a plan. Especially with a new toy to play games on. I'm impressed with your will power at keeping paperwork caught up. I'd probably be swimming in it!

I'm with you on the fleecy pyjamas Rudi! Nothing in the world like them for lazing about.

Take care

I don't think I have it in me to stand back while someone curses me, etc. I would get fired the first time that happened. Glad you did get a night off though. You deserve it. Those computer games help me unwind sometimes, but they are so addictive.

Glad things have quieted for you.

It's sunny and warm where I am. Wish I could send you a box of it.

Nice to share this massive weather system :-)

Nice new look! I wish I didn't procrastinate paperwork, but I do and rarely get the monkey off my back.

Have fun this weekend!

Devon said...

I hope you enjoyed your quiet day in fleece. It is so fun to have an unscheduled day with toys to play with!

Please stop changing the "look" of the blog...it is upsetting to some in the community..

Anonymous can bite me. I love the new look. And I need to let you know the next time my friends run their women's self-defense program. You won't need to worry about the possible punches!

Upon futher consideration, the "new look" is very nice..all previous observations concerning "site" aesthetics should be disregarded.

Anonymous is strange.

It's 7 degrees here at 11:00. I really wanted to get out of the house today, but it's not looking good at this point :)

Horribly wet here. I got out during the 'golden hour' late wednesday and took some pics of our river which spent the early part of the week flooding!

Enjoy your fleece jammies time. Nothing quite like it!

Rudee I can't believe that comment about the look of your blog. I change every month or so. Well I am glad you had an off night. Off from going out that is. It is a little warmer here in Ky. About 19 degrees. LOL but snow everywhere. I am just pjing and crocheting away. Blessings

Love it, girlie. You know, PJs backwards and inside out will bring on more snow. It's very powerful mojo at our house.
