Word of the Day: Birthday

Why?: This year has felt like a constant string of birthdays. Either it's that I know more people than I used to or it's that I'm more aware of everyone's birthday now that I'm older. In any case, today is my dad's birthday. Happy birthday, dad.



Quote of the Day: (via text message)"If she winks at me one more time, I'm going to throw up."

Why?: Among my many complaints about Sarah Palin, I simply cannot stand how belittled I feel when she winks at the camera, intentionally dumbs down her speech, and calls me "Joe Sixpack". My mom texted this to my sister during the VP debate. I second that emotion!

Word of the Day: Caramel Apple

Why?: It's fall now, so it's very appropriate that my latest employee appreciation gift was a caramel apple. Noah didn't believe that I could use my apple slicer at home to cut it up. I showed him!

Quote of the Day: "People are out there working two legal jobs to pay for the whore on Colfax to have air conditioning, all so she can cool off her puss' in between squirting out more babies who we'll support and whose daddies we'll never identify. And yet those same people who pay taxes for the whore's A/C make too much money to qualify for a government-paid-for air conditioning for their homes and can't afford to buy one for themselves. Tell Derek that he works at Juicy to cool off the hooker's 'juicy' between the buns in the oven!"

Why?: In my frustrated rant about the overall stupidity in our country and telling my mom how this Summer the State agreed to use taxpayer dollars to install air conditioning for low-income houses that couldn't afford air conditioning, this was the rant I got in return that had me busting a gut.

What I was telling her was how Derek's condo doesn't have A/C throughout the place (so he bought a window unit for his room a couple years ago) and how he can't afford to buy A/C even though he's busting his ass working two jobs as it is. And since he makes too much money between the two jobs, he wouldn't be able to qualify for a free A/C from the government.

At the same time illegals (who won't be deported (even after 12+ criminal offenses) before they end up killing two women and a 3-year-old boy at a Baskin Robbins) can have all the free A/C they want because "they have rights" and "they deserve it" for working the jobs that no one here wants to. Hello? At this point, there are so many people losing their jobs that many of them would sweep the streets of Denver if they had to in order to make ends meet. Oh, wait. Those jobs aren't available either because those who don't pay into our tax system (with the notable exception of sales tax on goods) are graciously doing that duty for us. Bless them. (Could I be dripping with any more irritable sarcasm?)

The reason this is all so belly-laughingly funny to me is because it's so back-asswards and yet so true.

Word of the Day: Burn out

Why?: Having reached a year and three months since I've had a vacation from work that was longer than a day here or there, I am officially burned out and cranky. Peeps best watch their step with me and tread on thin ice carefully. Like a run-in with a Black Mamba snake, one wrong move and it's all over!




Quote of the Day: "Girl, I am the manager of Human Resources. I have way juicier gossip I could be spreading around than you failing your drug screen."

Why?: I love Yolanda, my boss at my internship. I can always hear her phone conversations across the hall and they usually crack me up. With this one, a chick was accusing someone in our office of telling her parents she had failed our pre-employment drug screen. 1) That's impossible. 2) See quote.

Word of the Day: Interruption

Why?: As an unpaid intern, I feel very uncomfortable being told to pass off my work to a paid full-time employee. Especially when I am being asked to do it immediately in front of someone who is technically a client. I felt bad for interrupting my coworker's other duties because my supervisor made a spontaneous decision.

Quote of the Day: "Girl, your glasses are so big, they should have come with their own squeegee."

Why?: Our friend Chris said this with regard to Ryan's new sunglasses. You know the black book thingies that waiters bring your check in at restaurants? Well, Ryan used one of those to demonstrate the size and shape of his new sunglasses across his face. I about died laughing at how ridiculous that comparison looked.

I'm picturing something like this:

Word of the Day: Dry

Why?: I'm finding myself going through a bit of a dry spell with regard to quotes. Usually I have trouble coming up with words, but the tables have turned.

Also, with regard to "dry" - can dried food contents spoil? For example, if I came across (oh, I don't know) a box of Hamburger Helper stroganoff in my pantry that read, "Best by Sept. '06," would there be anything wrong with it? I mean, like, would it kill me, or would it just taste kinda stale?


Quote of the Day: "Half of it won't fit me and the other half is hideous."

Why?: I have been shopping, especially for shoes, lately and I think I am just not in sync with the latest fashion. I think everything looks terribly ugly. Why can't good, basic fashion trends just stick around forever??

Word of the Day: Chili

Why?: With cooler weather on the way I am looking forward to busting out the crock pot and the slow cooker cookbook. I think I am going to have people over for a chili night soon. Mmmm.

Quote of the Day: "You see me in the middle of a conversation? Don't interrupt. Rude. ... Securrrity."

Why?: I was recently told about the Bon Qui Qui skit from MADtv. Generally I'm an SNL guy, but there is the occasional MADtv worth checking out.

Word of the Day: Snowboarder

Why?: I have now stepped into the ranks of being a full-fledged snowboarder. Last night, Derek and I went bargain shopping for our Winter gear and I ended up with the works: Rome Bodega boots, Burton bindings and a SIMS Absolute board. No, none of my brands match, which did throw my OCD into a tizzy. But all of the gear matches and will provide a pretty sweet ride. Cowabunga, dude!


Quote of the Day: "It's your birthday. You're supposed to just sit back and let people call you. Hang up. I'll call you back and you act surprised."

Why?: Today was mom's birthday and she called me when she usually does, when she knows I am on the bus on the way home from school instead of waiting for me to call her with my birthday wishes. I was getting around to it, I swear.

Word of the Day: Emotional Intelligence

Why?: This is a common term we come across in my graduate studies. Our general thought is that it is equally important for a good manager or leader to have a high EQ, or emotional intelligence quotient, as it is for them to have a high IQ. A high EQ generally indicates that you are capable of perceiving and interpreting the emotions of yourself and others. I took an EQ test last night for homework and I don't think I did too poorly. What threw my score the most was my inability to self-edit. I tend to let my opinion be known and sometimes don't take into consideration the feelings of others. This is something I think I have known about myself for a while and it certainly fits with my OCD tendencies. Something to work on, I guess.

Quote of the Day: "I feel like all signs are pointing toward one choice, while the Universe is strongly discouraging me from the other."

Why?: Ever have this feeling. Well, Veronica has and my advice is to listen up!

Word of the Day: Avatars

Why?: Anymore, this word has come to represent one's CG likeness on any number of various websites and games. I'm referring to the Creatures of Light and Darkness. After finishing the Sex & the City Series with Derek and the girls, I decided to run the twisted Carnivàle Series by B and Elanna. It turns out that it captured their attention much more than I would have expected.

Now nearing the middle to end of the second and final season, I'm becoming more interested with the basis of the mythology behind this series' plot. I thought this show would make more sense than the first time I watched it. Well, apparently it didn't get all that much clearer.


Quote of the Day: "I'm glad I left when I did. There's got to be something in the water there."

Why?: Almost as soon as I left Displagtech about half the women who work there (which was only about 6) got pregnant. Now they are all in the midst of having their babies. Not that I don't want mine soon, the time just still isn't right. Noah and I agreed that we'd get started around 29. I guess I have 4 years and a wedding to go.

Word of the Day: Flood

Why?: It rained all weekend, which put a slight damper on my birthday weekend. In the city things weren't so bad, but as I drove into work this morning I started seeing road closings. I eventually had to drive through a massive flood zone in order to get to the office. Not everyone made it into work and it's looking like a short day. As a result of all the rain, Neo, my car, has sprung leaks. For some unknown reason, water is collecting in my front passenger floorboard and inside the door on the rear left side. Very bizarre for a 2+ year old car. Neo has an appointment Wednesday.

Quote of the Day: "Reindeer aren't real, right? I mean, Deer are real, but Reindeer aren't, are they? Because, Santa Claus has Reindeer. So Reindeer can't be real."

Why?: I laughed pretty hard about Derek's Reindeer misconception. For the record, Reindeer are real; flying Reindeer are fake.
