Blogger keeps losing my posts halfway through writing them! Here is what I remember from the past post I *tried* to write.

I am slighly sticky but smell like vanilla soda and victory.
15 business days until Jamaica.

why did I wear stilletos?

Bon Jovi has a new single breaking in less than 24 hours!

I am the queen of webinars.

My husband stayed home to cook and clean for me today.

If this dosen't save I am not posting today.

Okay peeps, I am seriously tired. As in, I felt drugged when I crawled into the shower this morning and I had to use eye drops three times before getting my contacts jammed in my bleary eyes.. I want sleep!
In unrelated news..(or possibly related news, I can't tell anymore) I took my Chihuahua for a run with me last night. I actually had a woman slow down to stare as I jogged past with a tiny little dog running next to me full bore..I think she either thought I was loco or that I should be arrested for animal cruelty. Cheech actually did really well, he had a full gallop going for about one full block before he decided that he really wasn't peeing on enough trees and he was tired of running like he stole something, so we had to slow it down so he could take a crap in front of the house with the "keep your pets moving" sign (haha, I really enjoyed NOT cleaning that up!) and then decided he wanted to turn around and go home, so home we went. He totally passed out on the floor when we got home and then pulled himself to his water bowl for a drink before stretching back out to cool his belly on the hardwood. I am thinking he actually enjoyed himself since he had a huge puppy grin on his face for almost a half an hour. I think that, with regular training, I can get him up to a full "round the block" run within a month..he is such a couch potato!

Anywho...I am going to go back to my "trying like hell to keep my eyes open so when the boss drops by my desk he dosen't make me crap myself" initiative for the day.

I could not get any more bored if I was trapped in a room by myself!! Today is just slllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. Please someone entertain me! I can't take this crap anymore today, I am super sleepy and if things don't pick up I will have a very hard time keeping my eyes open! I guess it is time for some more randoms about me..

I want to study how to master french pastry.
I also want to open a bakery in St. Louis.
I also want to go see sea world.
I want to work with dolphins.
I am going to swim with them in Jamaica even if it kills me.
I am more excited about the fresh juice bar at our resort in Jamaica than I am about the booze.
I think that makes me old.
I am only 30.
I want to learn Italian.
I am extremely mean if woken up in the middle of the night.
I value my sleep above pretty much any other part of my day.
I can sound cheerful over the phone while I give you the finger.
If I sound extra chipper and helpful even after 10 minutes on the call, I AM giving you the finger.
I could really go for a white chocolate macadamia cookie right now..
I also need a big icey glass of skim milk.
I think icey is spelled wrong.
Probably because it *Technically* isn't a word.
I just is only a word is spelled correctly: icy.
No, I will not fix the previous mis-spellings. They give my blog "character".
I miss my puppy.


That is all....le sigh.

Back from vacation #2

Our 10 year anniversary was fantastic..we made dinner at home and had a wonderful candlelit meal in our dining room (which we never use) and it was beautiful.

Dinner was grilled lobster and lamb and I tried out this new recipe for sauteed kale that was wonderful!

Other than that we were just lazy bums the entire four days and it was AWESOME!

Best long weekend ever!

still bored

15 minutes left..yehaw! I just want to go home and lay down because I am randomly dizzy and nauseous now. No, I haven't eaten any eggs lately..I read MSN too, peeps.

I also updated my sister-blog over at in case you feel like being a voyeur and checking out my random email chains with my bestie in South Carolina..we keep in touch via email all day long and often end up cracking each other is an email chain so you have to start at the bottom, just a little hint for people who don't understand that sort of thing, random poster who "didn't get it".

Yeah..this is pretty freaking random too, huh..okay straight into more random facts about me..

I am an excellent test taker, unless you deny me a calculator.
I like to keep odd squishy light up toys at my desk so I can amuse myself by attempting to juggle.
I secretly say lines from Goodnight Moon to myself at bedtime still.
I still sleep with stuffed animals that I have had since birth..they are scraps of cloth at this point.
I make the sign of the cross when I drive by roadkill. (someone needs to bless the poor little animals!)
I am pretty sure catholic guilt gave me OCD.
I am going to keep doing this until it is time to leave.
I think I love having house guests but then I can't wait to get my house back..seriously..I need time to wander around in my house make-up free in my glasses, people!
I am POSITIVE that my dog is smarter than everyone else's dogs.
(Dude, he is a genius, and so intuitive!)(shut was a joke, kinda)
My friends become more like family the longer that put up with my crazy..LOVE YOU SHENANIGANS!!!
My life goal is to take Jon Bon Jovi's pants off with my teeth.
I am also positive if I ever meet him for real the only sound he will hear from me is my body hitting the floor when I pass out.
I seriously want to be pregnant, but I am terrified of being in charge of another person's tiny life.
I love whicker chairs.
I love the chairs outside of Cracker Barrels and so badly want to own one, but they are ridiculously expensive.

okay...that ought to do it..time to record my voicemail and get on with VACATION! YAY!

prepare thyself!!!!!!

I am the late person today at work again..prepare for an influx of blogging today..I can only hope it will be epic.

I just have to get through to 7:30 pm to start my four day weekend..come on time machine!

almost there!

We look like teenagers!!!
So I am less than two business days away from my mini-vacation for my ten year wedding anniversary and I am so excited to have a long weekend to do nothing with! I must be showing my age (although surely 30 isn't that old, peoples!) but I can't think of a better way to spend a vacation than doing absolutely nothing! LOVE IT! (we are going to Jamaica in a month to renew our vows, so I am not wasting the vacation, there is a bigger celebration coming up!)

I am super super jazzed to be celebrating with my husband who just happens to be the best man I have ever met. You would not believe the amount of times I have heard "I can't wait to meet your husband, because I can't IMAGINE the man that puts up with you!"
Yeah...He freaking RULES! He is the reason that I am still as obnoxious and awesome as the day we met..he actually challenges me to go out and have fun when I am mopey and seriously wishes I would let loose MORE OFTEN!
Yeah..he's perfect, sorry ladies. Alll Mine!

I can't believe it has been ten whole years...Talk about being the luckiest woman in the world..

And best of all..he let me pick Thank You For Loving Me by Bon Jovi for our first dance..he is amazing.

I had the best weekend ever! We didn't have any plans so the hub, bub and I just got to hang out and be lazy bones all weekend, it was amazing! I had the most incredible weekend with my husband ever, and Cheecher-monkey had time with his daddy to play and entire puppy-pool tournament. (The final score was Cheech:27, Anthony:-8)

(cheech is the master of puppy-pool, he's a total ringer)

I am ridiculously relaxed to start off my short work week, and then we have a whole four days to do only what WE want to do again. I'm loving this!

Poof-daddy got back from his vacation returning to Washington to see his fam and friends, so I have plenty of ridiculous conversation and mocking to do...It was waaaaay too quiet without him here.

Could my blog become ANY more random? Let's see...

I love peas..even out of a can.
I hate blueberries unless they are in muffins or pancakes (then they are aces!)
I secretly wonder what my dog is actually saying when he barks directly at me with an intense expression on his face.
I love lamps.
I love sleeping with the window open.
I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate locust shells, especially when I see one right in front of me and scream and then realize it isn't the bug..just his shell..GROSS!
I am allergic to spider venom.
I have to poop.

That is all.

I am going to have to rename this blog soon..

I am pretty sure that my three readers know how miserable I have been lately..I think I should seriously rename this thing to "How Angie is Surviving Work Until She Pulls a Slater and Drinks Beer On A Plane's Emergency Slide"

I will get right on the interim I have decided to post snippets of lyrics that have helped me survive so far..


I've got another confession my friend
I'm no fool
I'm getting tired of starting again
Somewhere new

Were you born to resist, or be abused?
I swear I'll never give in, I refuse
-Foo Fighters-Best Of You


If you're not angry
you're just stupid
or you don't care
how else can you react
when you know
something's so unfair
the men of the hour
can kill half the world in war
make them slaves to a super power
and let them die poor

I was locked
into being my mother's daughter
I was just eating bread and water
nothing ever changes
and I was shocked
to see the mistakes of each generation
will just fade like a radio station
if you drive out of range
-Ani DiFranco-Out of Range


and you just KNOW there will be some Bon Jovi, we go..

Always thought I'd die young
In these hands I've held the gun
But it's too late for dying
Now there's nothing worth hiding
I've lost love lived with shame
I was humbled by my fall from grace
On the steps of decision
It's revenge or forgiveness

Halle Halle
We're one breath away
Halle Halle
From our judgement day
-Bon Jovi-Learn to Love

There you go..I have reverted to using other songs to get through since I appear to have lost the ability to write anything worth a damn myself..I can't wait until vacation..

Ever get that feeling..

That no matter how hard you work it won't make a difference? I'm there..
I am sick of this and I would prefer to walk out right now. I do not want a job where I am held accountable for others mistakes and no matter how I fix it I still end up the one that is blamed. I am just done. I am trying everything I can do to not cry at my desk right now and it isn't working very well..and if you know me at all you know I pretty much only cry when I am angry and then I just get more frustrated with myself. I just don't think I am cut out for this...Dear GOd, I need a new job.

Wednesday, August 4, 2010


I desperatley need to be done with today so that I can go directly back to bed..I am sick as shit and sitting here at work until 7:30 PM because I AM A ROCKSTAR EMPLOYEE, PEOPLE. I have tried to be pleasant and nice on the phone but damn it, I just can't do it anymore for the damned air keeps clicking on and off constantly over my head and I am going to freaking bash it with an office chair at any right back, I need to go throw up again..

I am back..frownyfacefrownyfacefrownyface

Back at work today after an amazing weekend in Chicago with Poof-Daddy..Oh. Dear. Lord. I love that city! I went berserk in Coach and we hit Sephora hard...I had the most incredible tapas at 1492 and our dinner for my "birthday" came with complementary champagne from our waiter (who was incredible). All in all I have to say that this was the best girls weekend ever, and I haven't even gotten to the concert yet! The boys were on fire at Soldier Field! The show was absolutely incredible and I can not WAIT for the next leg of the tour to start!!

Here is the set list..You can totally tell where Matt started winning the war on getting me drunk :)
