so speaking of insects; I commented earlier today how fun it would be to write an adult picture book depicting the similarities between office workers and ants...
hmmm, for now, i better not quit my day job!

blood suckers!

so after much convincing and twisting of the arm, my co-worker coerced me to give blood to the red cross. noble thing right? puh-shish. No matter how much time you get off work, it wasn't worth it to me at the end of the day:

I was in a pissy mood to begin the day with in the first place! I must say the only initial advantage of giving was the calming effect. Who knew it would be so calming that I would almost get hit by moving vehicles...

It was hotter than a egg frying in a tiny kitchen in the southern parts of GA today!
After giving, I felt super tired and drained. I sat in the car for 35 minutes in the heat. Then I crossed the potomac and headed for CVS for some gatorade.

Drank some fuel and began to walk across the street to meet up with the partners in crime of the day but I black out! totally blacked out!!! That was the scariest moment of all!!! I was alone on a street corner feeling nauseated and then could not see anything but darkness. Some how I made it across the street and into the bar(no I did not drink alcohol) I sat and sipped gatorade.

So the next brilliant move was to sit in the sweltering humidity @ the Nationals vs Dodgers game. Great game, great time, but I gotta think these things through next go 'round...

Game ends, Nats win! Head home on the metro with at least 2,000+ other folks.
Drunk girl behind trying to pick up all sorts of rift raft with her "I just graduated and Charlotesville is the best place in the world to be educated and buy wine speech" kill me already!

My stop approaches, and we all bolt for the door and head towards the cars;

Thinking the day ended with me unscathed, I thought too soon, as I fell out of the car because my toes got caught in the back seat! I hop on forward 'cause I have to get home to make signs and I am exhausted. Only the next fiasco is my contact falls out and I don't have my glasses! I am driving the beltway (aka dc speedway) @11:30pm with one contact! Fine, I know my way home right? Just close the other eye and wing it!

Oh but no... There is all sorts of construction and paving crap going on the entire way home. Flashing lights and cones and big rigs! Yikes!!!
I can't see jack. everything blurred together. Meanwhile I am holding one contact in one hand & the wheel of the car in the other. Frightening. very frightening (for the other drivers!)

I am all for giving! Which is why I am up late now, burning cds & making signs for a car wash! but come on...

You hear the speech about taking one for the team, but I have taken so many for the team I could start my own frickin' league!

Sometimes you just want to say, "no, I do not want to be involved" but as a friend pointed out to me - It takes way more energy to try to be socially inept than to just be you!

well, I did get an XL t-shirt out of it and a shiny pin that says RED CROSS ;)

oh and cookies and coke! I have had so much caffeine I doubt I will sleep at all. whoo hoo!!! I hope tomorrow is fun & profitable and everyone has a good time @ the car wash.

"Working at the car wash,at the car wash yeah, whoo hoo hoo! Work and Work"

the young and the restless

why does it seem that some of the best dramatic soap operas play out in front of your very eyes @ work?!?!?
fnkg drama queens!
why can't they learn to repressed their feelings and select a nice vice to bury it in...
i don't know how much more anyone will be able to bear...
it really feels/looks like scenes fron Survivor or any of these other crazy reality tv shows.
Is that the ticket? Are they watching too much tv or are they really like this?
I wish I could just document it all and write a book doused with side notes of psychoanalysis.
I guess the drama ensues once boredom takes over! Sorry I missed the Queen of All Drama Queens @ the 10,000 party. I am sure it(he) was out of control!!!

yuck!!!!

after a great weekend in Buffalo and returning to metro dc/baltimore/virginia, I have now broken out in a rash or hives or something. it is extremely disgusting. my boss suggested that perhaps I am allergic to this area. hmmm, could be...
I really believe it was the delicious clams that ate at Old Man River yesterday afternoon. Steamed clams, butter and tabasco sauce! Yum. But now my face looks like crapola & my eyes itch and burn too! I love seafood - I can't imagine growing older and becoming allergic to something I love so dearly ;(

saved by bm?

most people wander through life in an organized manner. Planned Vacations, Adherence to work schedules, daily routines outlined, etc...
I love organization but I cannot ignore the part of me that craves spontaneity!
this may be a minor disorder or maybe not...
the idea of jumping up and hopping on a plane to spend the day with a friend to celebrate their birthday or hitching a ride to the city for a night on the town is very much part of who I am just as much as the part of me that likes to do absolutely nothing but sleep 10-14 hours straight!

But I don't want to end up the "single life girl" for ever...
When everyone else has a planned out life or I should say a life with certain boundaries that are often inconvenienced by people like me.

but oh well, I am just going to do me for now...

so, I am almost out the door headed for Buffalo to at least buy my very "Great" Friend a drink on her birthday!!!

small glitch: she doesn't know I am coming yet. Just a minor detail. right?

anyone else going to Buffalo Rocks the Harbor tonight?

hobbies wanted

I need some new hobbies. the "boys as friends" thing doesn't quite cut it anylonger and frankly I am sick of 'em. I never saw it as a hobby but perhaps in the end, they did!
Perhaps I should crochet, read the book of word, or invest in #200 cats and call it a life!!!
(no offense to anyone who leads a life that resembles the above thought)

weekend is almost here...

part of me can't wait til tomorrow 4:30pm!well most of me can't! ! !
Hittin' the road again; Headed for the Big Apple for the weekend. This weekend I have no idea what's in store but I guess that makes it interesting.But at the same time I have no momentum to do anything right now to prepare... like stepping away from the pc, turning off the tv and packing.
I may get the chance to see my niece and nephew and their parents over the weekend. Bonus! I miss them sooooo much!!!

Ain't it though...

H *** O *** T !!!

It was 89 here with a heat index of 96+ and it was 84 and climbing inside my office bldg today. Just our floor on 10, the penthouse. Everyone else below was cooler than a cucumber!!! The vents only blew out hot air (that's called HEAT)!!!
So we left! Two days straight of hot temps inside and humidity outside. Now I am in the comfort of air conditioning at my computer compiling complaints... or conversation?
anyway, got errands to run.
Hey does anyone know if (e:Flacidness) moved to NYC yet or whatever?
