First Day off the Front Desk..... and I am Covering the Front Desk!!??

Well.. talk about shitty.. I have been in this job for almost 2 years now.. and I finally get a job inside in accounts.. Great.. Fabulous... I love it..

All weekend I have been looking forward to coming to work on Monday.. don't hear that too often!!..But I really really was.. Starting a new job, going into a cubicle is not to fun.. I have a big beautiful office space right now.. but at least I won't have high traffic in my own little cubicle.. and plus I can decorate it.!! :)

So this morning st. john's is stormy and covered in a blanket of snow.. I come in.. and the person who is going into my old job is NOT IN!! Just perfect isn't it?? Now on my very first day on the new job.. I am out here covering the front desk... I seriously could cry!!

As for my weekend.. it was pretty eventful.. Friday night I spent at the Mall, then hanging out with our friends Mike and Nicole.. we went for a boot and then up to Signal Hill to see the sights..hahah.. Saturday was busy.. Miriya's birthday sleepover was that night so I spent the day preparing and the night was of course very colorful.. kids bleeding, crying, puking and having LOTS of fun.. I kept them busy with crafts, decorating a tree, playing games and watching Hairspray....

Yesterday I took Miriya, Crystal and Ashley to see Enchanted... What a wonderful Movie.. I was on cloud 9 for the rest of the night.. And no.. Not just because Patrick Dempsey was the lead... ok.. that was part of the reason.. But it was a great movie.. Disney of course.. lots of laughs and just.. wonderful in general.. I would seriously go see it again tonight if I could!

So far this morning I have put in 5 orders to caterplan for people, checked many boardrooms, directed several people to various locations... I am doing more front desk duties that usual thats for sure! On this stormy Monday morning I would love nothing more than to go home and crawl into bed.. to bad this is not waiting for me....

Thanks Cara... Something to Blog About!!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I like to wrap all my gifts, however.. I do put some last minute presents for the girls in pretty Christmas bags with lots of colored tissue paper.

2. real tree or artificial? unfortunately, artificial. When I was a kid my mom would always put up a real tree.. because it was a real on we didn't ever have a tree up before the 22nd. I like putting up my tree super early so I have to use a fake one.. and also.. the only year we did put up a real one, it was disaster.. !!

3. when do you put up the tree? Between Dec 1st and Dec 10.

4. when do you take the tree down? January 6th... one year I was lazy ass and didn't take it down till Feb!!

6. favourite gift received as a child? Keyboard!!!
7. do you have a nativity scene? Yes.. a pewter set and a old school set

8. hardest person to buy for? Viki.. she is easy sometimes.. and hard sometimes.. but I guess shopping for other peoples kids is kind of hard too.. cause your thinking.. will they like this?? or will the parents be pissed that there is more toys around the house??

9. easiest person to buy for? Ashley and Miriya.. I know what they love!

10. worst Christmas gift you ever received? Its a toss up between Babysitters club stationary at age 15.. or the Brandon Walsh 90210 when i was 16!!.. ( i liked Luke perry!!) My friend Dave Crocker scraped off Brandon's eyebrows later! haha.. Funny thing, both of those gifts were from my moms friend who used to always give me $20 bucks for birthday and Christmas when I was a little kid when I probably would have preferred a toy or gift.. I hit 14 and she started sending these kinds of things..hahhah

11. mail or email Christmas cards?God.. I am terrible.. unless you live in st. john's or Stephenville.. you probably won't get a card!! I will email you one though..hahah..I just am TERRIBLE with mailing things

12. favourite Christmas movie? Garfield's Christmas Special.. I would watch it year round.. i had it taped off. .I really like the home alone movies too!!

13. when do you start shopping for Christmas? Um.. I bought 2 presents in October... but then slacked off until.. recently!! I always say I will be finished by DEC 1st EVERY YEAR.. but I'm never not..

Smile!! Your on Courtroom Camera!

So... I was shocked to see an segment on the news the other evening about a man who the justice system just seems to be being a little too lenient on. The Gentleman had 18 Impaired driving convictions and still they were thinking of not taking his license away permanently?? I have a close friend who had 2 glasses of wine and drove a short distance, was pulled over.. blew 80mg on the breathalyser and ended up getting put in jail for the night and lost their license for a year!!!This Gem allegedly blew 160-mg!!!

Here is the article

A St. John’s man convicted of his 18th impaired driving charge received a 42-month sentence today in provincial court in St. John’s.Wayne Enos Stokes, 53, pleaded guilty to exceeding the legal blood alcohol level of 80-mg and failing to appear for a court date.He was also handed a lifetime driving prohibition — a first for this province.In November 2006, Stokes was pulled over by police who had received and anonymous tip and blew a breathalyzer reading of 160-mg.Two weeks ago, he failed to show up for his scheduled court appearance.Stokes’ impaired driving convictions date back to 1979. The last one — prior to today’s conviction — was in May 1996, when he was sentenced to three years in jail.Crown prosecutor Donovan Molloy called Stokes’ driving record “horrendous” and said it was “only by the grace of God he didn’t kill someone.”Molloy suggested a four-year jail term, while defence lawyer Kevin Baker asked for a two- to three-year sentence.In handing down his decision, Judge Greg Brown agreed with the Crown’s assessment of Stokes’ record and stressed the danger involved with drunk driving.While the court often shows leniency and understanding in many cases, Brown said, “these considerations have to take a back seat today.”“People have to realize that if they continue to drink and drive, they should expect a significant term in prison

So what do you think about that?? Ridiculous?? Hell yeah!!..

How do you picture this person.. Talk, Dark Handsome? Fat, Scuzzy and bowlegged?? Well-kept Clean cut Socialight??

I'll give you a few minutes to think that over..

Check him out..

Worst Diet Day... Thus far!!

I am literally dying with a headache today. I ended up caving and having a coffee.. I just couldn't stand it any longer, Headache went away for a short while. Now it's back!!

I starting eating a soup.. the sacred heart soup.. its apparently really low in calories.. and yummy.. it actually is yummy.. I was up until 1:30 in the morning making it just last night!! Apparently if you eat just the soup and fruits and veggies.. you will lose between 10-17 pounds in a week!!! ( I'm down with that)

If you want more specifics on the diet click on sacred heart soup

So I am not doing the entire diet.. just eating the soup cuase its Zero calories!!

Why can't We all just be able to eat whatever and stay trim.. its not fair!! Why isn't society like it used to be. I mean.. like old painting.. you see an old painting.... you don't see some skinny ass chick with perfectly round ta-ta's. You see a voluptous woman with Curves.. Not that I want to look like that.. I just wish it wasn't so taboo to be " bigger"!! I really just care to shed my fat around my mid section.

Why can't we all just eat a big fat juicy burger and stay skinny like Paris Hilton

Snap Happy

Well.. I love Photography.. Ever since the days of being 8 years old with my mom's old Instamatic shit camera. I would set up my dolls, barbies, My little pony's.. whatever. My personal favorite was a still-life shoot of my smurfette purse! At the time my mom used to get mad at me, saying I was wasting her film and flash cubes.. ( old school) but I guess she didn't reolize that was she was seeing was an artist in the making. ( she's old school)

I continued to have a keen interest in photography pretty much my whole childhood and actually took Fine Arts for the sole reason of photography. I grew to love it even more when I got my hand 0n my first Manuel Camera, Pentax K1000. Its probably considered a piece of shit these days but I still think it takes the most lovely pictures! I have a half assed Canon now. Its a Canon A560. Takes Kick ass pictures though. ( the ones in this post have all been taken with it) I really would love to get a Nikon D80!! Actually I would settle for the D40x!!! ( hint hint Santa)

So here are some of my photos I am most proud of at the moment. They have all been taken within the last year. I am trying hard to get back at it... I'm a little slack in the art department lately!!

Here is my Top 10!

1. Taken at Signal Hill, St. John's Newfoundland. ( opposite side of Cabot Tower)06/07

2. Same as above but taken a little further back. 06/07

3. Quidi Vidi facing Signal Hill. 06/07

4. Weird Purple acorn-ish buds on and around Signal Hill. 06/07

5. Little yellow flower taken at Signal hill. 06/07

6. Boat in St. John's Harbour.. Taken from a floating dock facing signal hill. 08/07

7. I call this one "Harbour Dance" . Taken the same as above. I turned down the speed... Its unconventional but I love it!

8. The Long Time Friendship Rainbow Strikes again!! This was taken at Middle Cove beach. I brought my old friend Dave there during his recent visit to St. John's. He hadn't been home to Newfoundland in a long time. This awesome rainbow appeared.. Just like when I saw my bestest friend viki for the first time in 3 years!! Maybe it was Mr. Duffenais Again!! Taken 10/07

9. Kenobi!!! This is one of the shots I took for my husbands band. I played around with this one in a photo editor.. loves it!! 09/07

10. Here is another Kenobi Shot!! 09/07

Hope you enjoyed viewing as much as i enjoyed snapping!!

Tuesday Morning Blues....

Not the best start to a morning.. waking up at 7:35 when you have to get 2 kids ready for school and have to be at work yourself by 8:30.. Not fun!! So my husband turned off the alarm once again this morning and fell back asleep without waking me!! Thanks! He had to be at work for 8!! lets just say he didn't get there til 8:30!! but I was on time.. and surprisingly I look put together this morning.. No makeup but I threw on some gloss and thats enough.. I just dimmed the lights in my office so I am sure no one will notice!

So things are going good here at work. I guess.. I have a new boss who is giving me lot of extra tasks.. I was feeling like I was losing my skills you know.. Now I have some new ones to add. My old boss was really bad at asking me to do anything. I think he had serious social issues when it came to young women.. I would hear him around the corner talking to the old ladies and he would be laughing and joking with them.. When I would ask him a question or say hi he would turn 5 shades of red and run away practically.

Wooooah.. I just saw something.. er.. I mean.. someone very funny.. a gentleman just came in looking for his meeting group.. he had crustie the clown hair, wearing a banana yellow home-knit sweater, comparable to one my daughter had when she was 6 months old.. under the hideous( for a grown man) sweater he has on a mustard yellow dress shirt. ( see illustration) Then speaking in a very proper British accent he says " could I be directed to the 3501 booooooordroom" Its even funnier than I am sitting here eating porridge, looking at an Avon book!! Classy. Don't you just love it??!!

Great.. I just laughed so hard I dropped porridge in my hair!!

Fat Hot Celebs

Well.. Diet is still going good.. I didn't do anything bad all weekend.. and I actually only had a few sips of diet Pepsi all weekend. I am trying to get myself off the caffeine all together!! No Coffee or Soda!! I have been drinking Green tea.. and I actually had a really good spicy one this morning.. Try it..Rooibos Vanilla!! Tetley!! yummay!!

So I saw an old coworker at Walmart last night. WOW. .When I left the lab she was bigger than me by about 40 pounds and was starting the WW points diet. She was on the whole soup kick and I was still Stressing My Atkins success to her!! Well.. she was with another old coworker of mine and I didn't know her!! she is TINY!! well. not tiny.. but literally half the size she was when I saw her last, Which I am pretty sure wasn't any longer than 4 months. She looks amazing and healthy!! Lucky Bitch.. I needed that.. To see her success.. It helped boost me a little..

They say it takes about 4-5 days to get the sugar addiction out of your system.. How long for Salt, Fat, and all that other good stuff.. Something to Ponder...

Well.. I leave you with yet another one of my finds on the Internet.. What if the Hot Celebs out there were fat?? Would they really be so hot?? What do you think?

J Lo ????

Elizabeth Hurley???

Julia Robberts???

Gwenyth Palthrow

Sandra Bullock???

Catherine Zeta Jones??

Jennifer Love Hewitt??

One thing for sure.. Julia Robberts looks pretty scary in both of them!!

"Here I go again..."

Well its Wednesday.. The hump day so I hear so many people saying these days?? Like what the fuck does that mean..?? anywho....

I am sitting here now at working thinking.. what do I write about today.. The weather ( shitty) the Election ( dominating) or just my plain old mumbo jumbo I usually talk about.. Why ruin a good thing right?? I was just reading my fave local paper, Current.. It's really gotten quite good. Lots of Good Articles, More features.. I love it.. Its still has Josey Vogals.. She's funny!! Her article this time was called " the EX files" It was a story about her exes.. using fake names of course.. she talked about the guy who broke her heart, the one who made her orgasm.. the one who got away, yada yada.. I wonder do all of us girls have these lists.. I know I do.. At the time I always thought I was a strong girl who didn't give a shit. I wasn't like my friends Bawling over boys all the time.. I never showed any emotion.. I would bite my lip and fight any signs of emotion at all... I guess my friends did so much crying over boys that I just was the shoulder to cry on rather than the one doing the crying.. I do remember one time I wrote a short story about a horrible break up with ( fuck it.. I'm not faking the name to protect anyone) Troy.. My first real boyfriend... When I say real, yeah.. the one I lost it to. We were together for about 2 years before the fun stuff really started.. but in our first year of being together I was only 13.. we had a rocky relationship that's for sure. Dated for 8 month, broke up for 4.. dated for a summer.. broke up again.. dating for 1/2 then split for7 months.. then at last we hooked up with no strings.. that lasted until The summer of 93.. ( equivalent to 69) and that was the end of the Road for us. Most of the time he was a cheap bastard.. wouldn't buy me ketchup chips or let me take home another tape until I returned others I had.. grrrr..Not that there isn't some heartwarming memories.. Like him buying me awesome Peace Symbol earings on our 3rd dance date. We are on excellent terms now though.. I'm married, He's married.. I was at his wedding for god sakes! He was actually out here a few weeks ago for a concert and they came over for a few hours for a visit. He's a part of our huge group of friends from home. We will stay friends forever I am sure.. There isn't' anything weird between us anymore!

But as I was saying about the Short Story.. A guy came between us.. Not one that was after me. A nasty guy that liked my friend but for some reason didn't want me and troy together.. it was completely stupid. I wrote the story and had it in an exercise.. See.. when troy dumped me he got this fat piece of shit to call me and tell me.. ( the first breakup) I didn't fight to stay together.. I was just like, " OK" Now that I look back at what I was like back then.. I never fought for a relationship. I am not sure if it was about the fear of rejection or I just didn't care.. I could never see myself saying " take me back.." or " don't do this" NEVER! Did that make me Strong?? or just plain stupid.. I think it was defiantly about fear of rejection..

Anyway.. One night my friend Charlene was at my house and we were one the phone with troy and we were almost back together. At this point we both knew that we wanted to.. It was just to make it official. Of course Charlene was being our mediator.. I was sitting on my floor in my fantastic purple bedroom.. she was on my bed. She took out the Short Story and told me she was going to read it.. Funny how you are when you are 13-14.. It was like I wrote that story To be read Specifically by Troy. Just like a friend I has ( this one will remain nameless) who would write in her diary and then read it to us.. Like she was writing it knowing that we would hear it later.. fucking weird.. Anyway.. after Charlene read the story she handed me the phone and Troy told me he wanted to go back out.. I didn't answer.. I started to cry and passed Charlene the phone!! I told her to tell him yes.. I think that was the first time I had cried over a boy in front of any of my friends.. ( I had wiped many a tear from Charlene's eyes over a couple of ass wipes.!! ) Maybe that was the First and Only sob session I needed.. I don't remember crying over any other high school boyfriends ever after that.. Especially Troy!! The last time we broke up.. he was the one doing the sobbin!!
