As Long As I Don't Throw Up I will be Okay

So today is the first day of what I am calling "Hell Week." I have 2 finals, 2 papers, I still need to finish packing for my move, I need to actually move, plus work, plus now we are thinking of getting a new dog. On top of that I just started a new diet. I stayed up till midnight last night studying for one of my finals. I also need to help my mom refinance her house. I started drinking coffee again. I am like talking a mile a minute. *Breathe*

This is gonna be a rough week/month/year/life.


Reader Poll Whatever Day

Reader Poll is back!

Today's Poll brought to you by the one, the only, Ms. Writes and Snaps.
1. Would you rather eat ONLY Syrian food or ONLY Mexican food for the rest of your life?
I am gonna go with Mexican on this one. Only b/c I know what I am getting in it.
2. What's the meanest thing you've ever done?
Oh Gawd, this one still haunts me. In middle school one of my friends asked me if she was pretty and I said, "You see that wall over there? You are prettier than that wall." Then proceeded to laugh until she cried. I feel pretty crummy about that one.

3. Did you see a movie this weekend? If so, what?
I have been trying to go see "Cars" for a couple of weekends. Maybe this weekend. I did see Sisterhood of the traveling pants in the privacy of my own home.

4. What's the most recent CD you purchased?
I bought 8 at one time last my favorite one is the soundtrack to "Monster-in-Law."
5. If 12 hot Blogger girls put their heads together and made a calendar, would you buy it?
Sure, anything to support blogging chicks.
6. Where did you go on your last vacation?
Lake Havasu - The River. With one of my girlfriends just to relax. Living on my "part mix".
7. What defines summer in your world?
It used to be getting out of school and skinning up my knees. Now its when I get out of work and its still such a nice day out that I actually still want to go do some physical activity instead of crawl home and go to bed. That and weekday margaritas vs. waiting for the weekend.

8. What time did you get up this morning?
6:38 out the door by 6:58 and surprisingly made it to work 15 minutes early.
9. If you could be interviewed on any talk show, which one would you want to be on?
Hmmm… I don't know why I would be on there but John Stewart / Daily Show.
10. How many hours a day are you actually WORKING at work?
Hah, like I am willing to admit that. I am working more than not, pathetically.


I guess it really is summer

I have been going from my air conditioned house to my air conditioned car to my air conditioned car and back. I don't come home until the cool of the night. Today I got out of work early today and *bam* the heat hit me. It's freakin' hot!


Not today or tomorrow but maybe next year

My world has been in a slight chaotic state ever since the announcement of the acquisition of my company. Early on they had started throwing out dates that loomed closer to now than later. With that said I started battening down my hatches and other people just completely jumped off the ship. Its only been a couple of weeks since the announcement and regular folk and even managers are leaving. After the initial hurricane they left us in the dark with no further announcement till this past week.

Last week we put on a dog and pony show for the company that has acquired us down to cleaning off our desks and dressing in business casual. We have gotten so used to being dressed casual that the thought of wearing a 3 inch heel makes my ankle start aching. I think we did the show for nothing, b/c really at the end of the day we are all gonna be gone anyway. There was many meetings and finally one big meeting for us.

With everything they are trying to do my department is looking not to be let go till the end of the year or possibly the spring of next year.

Then why did they make this big deal? Better yet why did I make this such a big deal? I turned my life upside down for nothing! School is now again on the backburner (well as much as it can be) but I have no clue what to do with myself b/c I have to wait until the Titanic goes down so I can steal a life preserver so I can float to safety.

I can't schedule anything and my life cannot move on. It upsets me to say the least.

*Back to the cubicle staring*


Reader Poll Monday

1. What childhood vacation do you remember the most fondly?
We had so many childhood vacations, I don't know how to pick one. My parents had a 32 foot RV so we would go "camping" all the time or we would go to the bay area to visit family all the time. The nice thing was that they would let my brother and I bring friends.
