Hello. Yes yes, it is me. Still alive!

First of all, I am freaking out about this. I spent most of my weekend researching this, and I am convinced that brown recluse spiders have infested my house. And, let me tell you, there is nothing but fuel for this fire to be found on the internet. Stupid internet. My ultimate conclusion: To be safe from brown recluse spiders, I am going to have to build plastic bubbles for every single member of my family to live in. And I will be sure to shake the bubble to make sure that it is free of brown recluse spiders before making someone live in it. Creepy.

Secondly. I am going to get fired for saying something smart-alecky to the wrong person. Today a man asked me if he was supposed to bring a stool sample in his hand. I told him he could do that, or bring it in his hat. Pause. Then I told him to bring it in a baggie. (duh) Laughter. Luckily, the laughter wasn't just on my side of the phone.

This Thursday Hubby and I will have been married for 3 years! Congratulations to us! We are celebrating by getting cable, and by getting a TV for the living room. But of course we both have to work on Thursday, so we are actually celebrating our anniversary tomorrow. So, TV tomorrow! Yippee! (P.S.-I checked with Hallmark, and audio/visual entertainment is the proper way to celebrate a third anniversary.)

And lastily!







Blonde! Strawberry blonde if you will. I like it. For at least the next five minutes. Then I will dye it again!

It Must Be The Cat

A co-worker and I were sitting up front this afternoon.

She had been on her cell phone, and this man was in to pick up his cat. He had to run out to his car for something, so he left the cat in its carrier on the floor.

While he was gone, something started to beep.

"What is that?" I ask.

Co-worker looks around for a minute.

She says, "It's not me, it must be the cat."

I bust out laughing. We are surrounded by computers, printers, phones, and other electronic devices. But the only thing that she can come up with is that the cat is the one that is beeping.
