First Impressions

Christopher sent me this link today. I was LOL for a REALLY long time. That kind of laughing that is abrupt and loud and your stomach hurts afterwards. Comic relief AND a stomach exercise; can't beat that!

You might not find it as hilarious as I did. You might not have an X that is an Apple fanatic and likes to tell you everything that is wrong with your computer is because it's NOT an Apple. You might not think relationships are ridiculously hard (hard I tell you), and are NEVER what they first appear to be. This video is a parody of my x-marriage. No kidding.

It has occurred to me lately that my relationship with my job is like a marriage. If you're in it for the long-haul, you have a different set of expectations. And if you didn't know this already, LIFE IS ALL ABOUT EXPECTATIONS!! The ups, downs, communication challenges, being in love, wanting to be loved, liked, whatever, is the same at work as it is in any relationship. I'm setting a record for the longest-running job I've ever had; 3 yrs and counting. It's HARD I tell you.

Back to EXPECTATIONS again. Try this little exercise: when you're feeling pissed off or happy or any emotion, do expections affect my attitude or feeling?? It's ALL about EXPECTA.........................oh you know what I'm saying!

Eyes are watching you

Originally uploaded by Heather's Shot.
I finally got pictures from my X. He's taken so many great pics of our son this year and I've taken none.
I finally scrapbooked last week. First time in 9 months. I feel soooooo far behind but now I guess I'm like everyone else I know. (It's always comforting to know that others are more flaky than me).

I had quite the busy weekend although I'm not at all ready for Monday!!

Friday night was a crazy night that started at the Concerts in the Plaza listening to JnD, then dinner & drinks at Firestone with a friend, then ran into another friend and went for more drinks at Blue which has turned into a jazz super club, THEN the topper was The Graduate for Latino night. Who can say they danced to 3 totally different types of music at 3 totally different places in ONE night?!

I slept in Saturday and finally took my kid out at 3pm. I took him to Boomers where we played two rounds of miniature golf and did the go-karts. OMG. Then went to Tawna's and hung out and watched Willy Wonka. Good to see the original again. Can't wait to see the re-make.

Today was the usual Sunday; slept in, rode bikes, watched a lot of TV, & finally started laundry at 10pm. Glad we went to our friend's apt. for hanging out. I can't tell you how much I enjoy good female gabbing!!

It's almost midnight; time to "purn into a tumpkin".

Can you believe I hadn't read dooce's blog until this week???

Dooce is written by a woman named Heather (for gawwwd's sake) that was fired in 2001 for writing about her co-workers and company in a negative way.

The tone of those weblogs were actually humorous in a Dilbert-esc kind of way and didn't mention any names. She was a web designer in LA at the time.

She continues to blog about her daily life as a stay-at-home mom living in Utah but still has the same wicked, sarcastic sense of humor which I adore so much. YOU GO GIRL.

A good blog like this (and my all time favorite ) is great reading because it's like a good book or even better yet ..... a good soap; a continuing saga of characters you become completely engrossed and engulfed by. GO BLOGGERS!
