Sometimes I think I expect too much out of people. Sometime I think I shouldn't go to the mail box because it makes me think I expect too much out of people lol

Seriously, tho.......every day for the past week, I have checked the mail in hopes of finding a birthday card from my Mom and sister. I even gave them until today before I really started griping about them, as the mail could have been slow, they could have put it in the mail a day or so late, etc. But I have received no phone calls or cards acknowledging my birthday and it peeves me off. Not to mention, it really hurts my feelings that they can't do something - if they can't afford the card or stamp, then could they at least call me? =/

I have always sent them a card for their birthdays. I have always called my Mom on her birthday. I have not called my sister, as she was ignoring my calls for quite awhile and would only pick up the phone when I called when it suited her mood. So I told her I wouldn't call again until she called me. Well, now it looks like they both do not want to have anything to do with me.

How can you forget your daughter's birthday? I just don't understand that =/ My husband tells me that they are the ones with the problem, not me. He tells me that I need to live my life, to not care - and in the end, that will bother them more than giving them the satisfaction of knowing I do care.

Unfortunetely, there is a little part of me that still does care *sigh*

Day of Weirdness

Yes, today has just been plain ole weird lol I woke up this morning and got in the shower - cuz I do that from time to time so I don't gross people out with my stench =) I was in the shower for about 3 minutes when I look down at my feet to see a wasp by them. So I spazz out - as any normal gal would do if they saw a wasp in their shower. But I was also a bit grumpy, as this is the 3rd time there has been a wasp in my shower in the last 3 friggin days! Wha da heck?

OK, I know what you are asking yourself! Did I kill the wasp? Did I have my husband kill the wasp? and no lol I did not kill the wasp the other 2 times either, so maybe thats my problem. Being a gal who would feel guilt ridden for smashing a wasps guts in my shower when he was leaving me alone to begin with, I scoop him up in a small box - put a lid on it - and put him outside.

I have to wonder if it is the same wasp? Does he have a crush on me? Or is he just telling his wasp buddies to come hang out there as well? =) I dunno what the heck is going on, but it MUST stop. I think I am gonna start having heart problems if I continue to find a wasp in my shower lol

But on to non-waspish stuff! =) The day goes on and the work day gets over with and my husband and I decide to go get something to eat for supper. We end up at this place that was originally a Cajun place, but is now a Brazilian place. Sooo.....we say, ummm ok, lets try it. BIG mistake! Not only is the place expensive, but annoying and weird. They have a buffet like area to supplement their 'regular' course of stuff - which included having them come to your table and shaving off different kinds of meat for you to try. Now this wouldnt have been weird, except:

1.) The waiter gave us a 10 minute dialogue of the place, the menu, what to expect - and we didn't understand a word he said.
2.) The meat 'shavers' were dressed in 'pirate' like clothing and were constantly at our table, along with our waiter - who seemed way too concerned with how we were doing.
3.) There were probably a total of 3 women in the whole restaurant. The music being played reminded me of some pop disco stuff - the tune 'bammm chickey baaalmm baaallmmm' sticks in my head for some reason - which reminds me of something a gay guy would listen to.

I think one would have to go there to experience the whole aura of the place. And perhaps I am just not the right kind of person to truly appreciate that sort of place, but.....I ain't going back darnit! lol

Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeeeeeee........

Ya know, this has been a pretty darn good birthday weekend =) I honestly did not think it was gonna be - since it started off being in Salem, MO. read right, SALEM friggin MO *sigh* Scott calls me at 10 A Friday at work, telling me he has to go there for work and he *hopes* to be back by tomorrow (Saturday) morning sometime. So needless to say, this did not go over well, as I was pretty down in the dumps anyway. But then he calls back to see if I can ask if I can come along, and what do you know? They said I could leave! How mighty nice of them to let me go to Salem, MO lol

Honestly, that point, if I had stayed home by myself on my birthday weekend, I would have been SERIOUSLY depressed instead of SERIOUSLY bored =) So anyway! Off we go Friday afternoon to Salem and make it there about 4:30 P - which is amazing, as it was pouring down rain almost the whole way there. And of course when we get there, the other guy Scott needs to meet there still has 2 more hours before he is gonna be there.

We visit WalMart.......then Sonic.......then WalMarts parking lot......then McDonalds.....then finally back to WalMart to meet up with the guy. We promptly head there, and what shoulda been about an hours worth of work turned into four hours *uggh* And lemme just say, sitting in a work's parking lot with one street light, in the pitch dark with the rain coming down like it hasn't rain in ages is pretty darn creepy. Thank goodness for 'People' magazine......I read that and then wrote a few words down for a poem, then knitted a bit - until I realized it was getting dark quick. I then fell asleep and woke up sweating like crazy - and realizing that about 2 hours had went by.

So what does a gal do in the dark when she knows she is in it for the long haul? Well, since she has a 'Blackberry' phone, it makes things a *bit* easier. So I check email.......then I check my blog for new messages.....then I click 'send and receive' and check email messages again....then I check my husband's wrenching board......then I click 'send and receive to check email messages again lol Grumpy after 15 minutes of this, I fall asleep again and am awakened by Scott tapping on the window - which freaks me out.

BUT then we were driving out of Salem, MO to home - wahooo! We get home about 3:30 A and don't wake up until 10:30 A. Just in time to start getting ready for what I *thought* was a knitting/cooking party - but one of my friends secretly conspired to make it a birthday party =) That was awesome! Great food.......hanging out with cool and spiffy people.....snazzy presents.....what more could a gal ask for? Well, maybe to not gain any weight from all the great food? lol

Today my husband gave me my presents and we had dinner at a place called Pierponts in Union Station. Its pretty much been a tradition for the last 3 years =) We had my friend - A - and her husband join us there to celebrate. They actually had something to celebrate themselves, too! 'A' is pregnant!!! woot, woot! I can imagine how happy she is, as I know she has wanted kids for quite some time, so it was almost like another birthday present! I personally don't want kids - but my friends can get knocked up if they want. And if they wanna be, I sincerely hope they do - as its hard emotionally to want something that badly and not be able to have it.

Well, I am getting a HUGE tired spell now - so I guess I better quit blabbin' atcha all! Plus, my husband is in a talkative mood, so I better make the most of it - I am not sure if he is humoring me cuz its my birthday, if its the muscle relaxer and painkiller he has had for his back, or what! But this gal isn't gonna pass up her husband's talkative mood - especially on her birthday lol

Doodley Doooo....

Why is it my husband insists on waiting till this afternoon to buy me my birthday gifts? *uggh* We have a cooking/knitting party to go to in about an hour - yet, he insists he should get my birthday gifts now, cuz he might not have time later. He claims I snoop and thats why he waits till the last minute to shop for me. I have no earthly idea what he is talking about lol

OK, OK......maybe I DO know what he is talking about =) But I have gotten a little better about it. I am a pretty intuitive person - for the most part anyway, some things can surprise me, tho. He did surprise me last year with a new Coach purse *wahoooo* hehe I would never have spent that kind of money on a purse myself, and both him and his daughter did an AWESOME job picking out a great looking purse.

Acckkk........just called my husband and we have friends showing up at our house in 30 minutes, so I better clean lol Dont want them to think I am a slob or anything =)

More laterzz.....

PS Thx D for your comment about my doxie!!! =)

Doggie Update

Wow......I must have been pretty pathetic last time, as not even my best friend, A, commented on my last blog entry lol

My husband did take our older doxie in to the vet this morning - as she had another 3 accidents, which is REALLY unusual for her. Vet says she is fine, tho - just getting older and aging a bit in the brain like we all do as we get older =) Well, I won't when I get older - I am determined as heck to be forever young in the mind! I think all people should strive to be. Not that I haven't had my problems with I know when I turned 30, I was a wreck. Almost 3 years into the 30s and I have that milestone tackled - now it will be the 40s!

But anywhoo! Vet says older doxie needs a special diet to help her mind bounce back a bit - think there is fish oil or sumpin like that in it. She seems spunky already - altho I doubt it could work that quick. Vet does seem impressed with her - as she acts like most 10 year old doxies, not a 14 year old one. Yayyy! =)

Now I just hope all her blood work comes back great, too!

Random Stuff

I am not quite sure what mood I am in really, I suppose it depends on what I am thinking about. I guess if you want to summarize it up - its an analystic mood. I am WAY overthinking things right now, which is not good for some things and good for others. I have been quite fixated on why people mow for one lol I guess after you have spent yesterday sweating and letting yourself back in the house sore as heck, you wonder what started it all. What makes people think its necessary? I suppose there is some place I can google that will tell me exactly that, but so far I havent found it. It just gives me the history of the lawnmower or landscaping. I dont want to know how they were built, how they evolved......I want to know how we, as human beings, evolved into people who found it necessary to mow our lawns. Surely, once upon a time, we didn't right? Sometime in our past lives we didn't think it was necessary - and just (for lack of better description) lived WITH the land - like the American Indians. Or were we always the 'civilized' people who insisted on having perfectly manicured lawns? I seriously think there were better things for us to do, like weed our gardens, than to make sure our grass was not more than 1 inch high in our front yards.

But that is just one of the many things going thru my brain right now. The other is rather sobering. I would say its more life and death than cutting grass, but....I just read an excerpt from the 80s that held the caption 'Grass have feelings too' Interesting that people acknowledged that grass IS life even then. BUT I digress......back to what I was originally wanting to say =) Tonight, my older doxie blatantly has accidents right in front of us - 2 times. My husband thinks she is getting old and is confused, which has me terribly sad =/ In some sense, I suppose he is trying to prepare us for what will eventually come, but... my older doxie embodies the VERY being of who I am, I want to be, and who I was. She has been with me for 14 years now - longer than any dog I have had, and longer than I have known my husband, or even X husband. Her passing away will forever close the door of who I was and continue to be. She IS the 'kid' I don't have - and I love her more than anything =/

In fact, just typing this really I will go on to other things. Like the husband and I brought up during dinner how we might not be moving if we had bought the house we rented before we bought our first place together. There was simplicity there - you were more 'isolated' from your neighbors, and I suppose everyone wonders what would have happened if they had stayed or done something different. Not that our life isnt great, but you wonder what a different sort of 'great' it could have been ya know?

Wow.....look at me ramble and overanalyze everything huh? lol

The Weekend

I really should be in bed right about now, but.....actually, technically I am - as we have the wireless network and I have my very own laptop. So I am sitting in bed bloggin away - just not snoozin away yet! =)

It has been quite the weekend! I hosted my very first baby shower this weekend, and judging from my husband's comments since then - my last baby shower I am hosting lol Luckily, I had several friends who helped me decorate, clean up and such. And I had one friend bake an awesome cake for it! So many yummy layers to it - it was like heaven in every bite =) If there hadnt been an evil, lurking lady who bossed us around afterwords when we were trying to clean up, the occasion would have been perfect!

Pretty much the rest of the weekend has been consumed by home projects, since we are trying to sell our house soon. So too much work and no play has worn this KS gal out! Thank goodness for energy drinks, MT Dew, coffee drinks and such - otherwise I dont think I coulda done it all lol

It was kinda funny on our way to Lowes the other day for more house stuff, tho. We were driving down a residential street and there is a young boy out in the middle of it riding his bike. OK......young boy musta moved once we got closer right? Uh, noo...... we thought he was going to for a minute, but he stayed in the middle of the road. Once we were close, my husband rolls down his window and tells the boy he might want to get out of the middle of the road, as its dangerous, and the kid replies:

"You have cool hair"

Needless to say, I think my husband was inwardly flattered but still irritated with the kid for stupidly being in the middle of the road. So again, he tells him to stay out of the road and we drive away.....

So anytime he has started to get grumpy, frustrated or sumpin this weekend - all I have to tell him is that he has cool hair and he is happy again lol

Things that Sparkle

It is really funny sometimes how a certain day, nite almost has a 'theme' to it. For me, it seems to be tonight =) I am sitting at my laptop covered with glitter. No, I did not get childish and pretend that my glitter was fairy dust and sprinkle it over me lol And was not for anything uh, err.....sexual. I was in my office attempting to glitter some decorations for a baby shower I am planning for Saturday. Needless to say, while the concept of using glitter may seem user friendly in your head, when you do attempt to actually glitter something - its a pain in the butt =/

Everything got glittered just fine - in fact, there was plenty of glitter to go around. My office floor is now covered with glitter *sigh* I thought I was being smart when I glittered my pieces - as I laid down a piece of cardboard sp? to catch what doesnt hit the intended mark. Everything went fairly well until I was done, and with a happy sigh and a smile to myself that I was pretty darn smart to think of laying the pieces on cardboard - I then thought I would save some of my glitter on the cardboard and slide it back in the bottle.

This did not happen. Instead, it slid TOO quick and landed in a big, thick blob of glitter on the carpet. Not to be deterred, I tried pinching up the glitter from the carpet, so that I could put it back in the bottle. Not only did I manage to pinch glitter, but carpet fuzz as well *grr* I decided that I did not want fuzz in the bottle so I reached over to get the piece of cardboard again, and the glitter bottle dumps over to make the glitter carpet fuzz pile even bigger *ugghhhhhh*

So out came the vaccuum sweeper =) What an awesome invention that thing is lol Now if only I could 'sweep' off the glitter stuck to my hands, arms and legs!!

But anyway! I log in to my email account and am greeted by a email with the subject line 'Socks that Sparkle'. Ummm......ok, either they are really good at marketing their stuff and wait for the ideal time to send emails like that OR God is having fun with me lol

Back to the sparkle socks tho =) If ya get a chance, you should check out the below link on it. Looks like they are adding thin strands of sterling silver to sock yarn! Methinks I just may have to get some! I may not be a sock knitting pro, but I can at least gloat I have some pretty spiffy yarn lol

Here is the link for ya'all!

Fortune Cookies

My husband and I have noticed that fortune cookies have deviated from their original purpose. When we got lunch at a Chinese restuarant earlier today, we were presented with the typical fortune cookies at the end of our meal. Mine read:

"Let your social instincts off the leash and talk to everyone"

I smirk after reading mine and hand it over to my husband for him to look at. He then cracks me up by saying, "Thats not a fortune cookie, thats a suggestion cookie". And all joking aside, it it doesn't predict anything. Isn't that the original intent behind a fortune cookie? Kinda like reading your horoscope ya know?

Just sumpin' to ponder upon for ya' all =)

Ever wonder why?

Anyone ever wonder why you start some projects? lol After spending hours today trying to finish the tile in our second bathroom, I seriously wondered that myself. I wasn't as much help as I was hoping to be - but I did manage to tear up the linoleum, trim and the stuff that the linoleum was laying on - uhh.....wood? =) I am thinking so - as the friggin' stuff splintered as I ripped it up *grr*

But I did manage to complete the bathroom demolition project - and now my husband is impressed I can tear up a bathroom so well *happy sigh* After his nervousness at me taking charge and telling him to go do other things, I was relieved at his admission of my superior ability at doing so lol

So then went down the 'backer' board - which was fairly uneventful. But then came the tiles.....or rather sheets of tiles with this mesh like stuff behind it. The tile pattern in white hexagonal tiles with occasional black diamond tiles interspersed throughout. So a bit more difficult than just laying down one tile at a time. Suffice it to say, it was quite a mess with the mortar? we had to lay down to get the tiles to stick. It was everywhere =/

Now my lower back hurts, and I am propped up on the bed with 3 pillows and feeling sorry for myself. I dread to see what my body feels like tomorrow morning *uggh*

Al's Oasis

Ya know, it never ceases to amaze me how people can label something with such a grandiose name as 'Al's Oasis' and have it be anything BUT an oasis. I think there should be a law against naming your establishment something so misleading, but perhaps maybe I am being too critical.

Ummm......then again, maybe I am not lol

The day started off well with a trip to 'Bear Country USA' and the 'Mostly Chocolates' store which we make a point of frequenting everytime we are in that neck of da woods =) Seeing all the baby bear cubs romp around, climb trees, splash around in the small pond and capping it off with a trip to a place that dedicates itself to chocolate is like heaven to me. Even my husband has to admit he secretly looks forward to going both places!

But all good things must come to an end, so we left to get started on our trip back home. Numerous signs pop up for this 'Al's Oasis' place, and by the time we reached where it was located at - my husband threw caution to the wind and decided we should be adventurous and try and get something there to eat - as they had a restaurant as well. Its pretty much a strip mall sorta place with a restaurant at the end....

But anyway! So we walk in and are seated in fairly quick order. It takes a few minutes to have the waiter stop by and take our order, and when he does - he is horrid at doing so. in the heck can you mess up taking someone's order? Just write what they say down verbatim. But this waiter acts like he can't understand what my husband is trying to order (which is simply a salad with their 'famous' buffalo burger), and really earns brownie points with my husband by asking 'is this all on one ticket'?

Umm.....ok, did we act like we didnt know each other well? I find that hard to believe, but....

So we are sitting there waiting for our order to be served to us (which takes an extremely long time I might add), and I notice their 'decor' in their restaurant. There is a ledge all around the wall, near the top of the ceiling, that has endless amounts of dead.....stuffed....animals. Not that I haven't seen this type of decor at other places, but the animals they chose to display should make them ashamed of themselves.

For instance, in one corner is a swan. Now I may not know much about taxidermy, hunting, etc., BUT that is just stupid to stuff a swan. Did they run out of deer? Can you really brag about killing a swan? What in the friggin heck possessed them that day to kill such a beautiful creature? Of course, like my husband said in their defense - it was a really big swan.


It wasn't just the swan either that helped kill my appetite there. There were deer, some sort of wild cat (more like a kitten by the size of it), and as I took a look behind me - there is a stuffed porcupine. AGAIN......why?? Was this its punishment for spraying a handful of its porcupine needles at someone? I just don't get it....

To make a long story short - I found it so disturbing that I left there without touching my sandwhich much at all. So we stopped at a gas station and I grabbed a bag of peanut butter M&Ms. Yes......chocolate......the 'feel good' food lol

We finally did make it home about an hour or so ago, which was a relief. When you are sitting in the passenger seat and lifting your rear end up and down to see if the 'air bag' light will go on and off - you are seriously bored =)

So now we are off to get the dogs from their 'doggie spa' and spend the rest of the day at home. Yayyy!!

Am worn out! =/

Who knew taking a vacation could be so tiring? I guess if we were 'normal' people, we would fly to places and save time and wear and tear on our bods, but......neither my husband or I can be classified as 'normal' lol

We took off yesterday morning-ish for Cheyenne, Wyoming and actually ended up making it a little past there - but turns out the hotels were all booked up. And being that it was about 1 A by the time we were there - we pulled over at a rest stop and slept for the nite in the truck. That was NOT fun =/ I started off sitting upright, woke up and managed to push the seat back and curl up on the floor and lay my head on the seat for another hour or so, until I woke up again because I was too cold *uggh* My husband felt sorry for me and turned the truck on for a bit for some heat, which helped - so I ended sitting upright again and fell asleep. At this point, the cycle started over again - scoot seat back and lay head on seat, wake up cuz cold, husband turns on heat, sit upright again, etc etc. So needless to say, we got an early start on the road this morning and felt pretty grimey by the time we got to our next destination (Billings, MT). I recommend anyone who even thinks about the possibility of having to sleep in their vehicle to take blankets, pillows and enuf muscle relaxer to make your bod not mind the funky positions you might find yourself in lol

Even tho the nite wasnt the greatest, tho, today has been a bit better =) It has been amusing to see some of the road signs along the way - like one labeled 'crazeywoman'. We have also seen numerous antelope and even just sitting in the parking lot of the hotel we have checked in for the nite - I saw a gopher sitting upright, looking about. He almost reminded me of our doxies at home, when they 'sit up pretty'. Altho, our doxies are doing it to get something (i.e. attention, food, etc.)

So now we are off to find interestin' stuff in Billings, MT to check out! =) Wish us luck!!

Sometimes planning things out.....

..... just isn't worth it! lol Yesterday, we had every intention of getting out of bed at a decent time, doing the things that we needed done, and hitting the road for vacation. But, it didn't quite happen that way. Oh well! It IS nice that we are still at home, having the dawgz dote on us and just being plain ole homebodies. If I hadn't been quite the optimist about getting on the road today, I would have headed to our knitting get together in Lawrence, tho. VERY rarely do I miss one - and I have to say, I miss seeing the gals! If ya' all knew the conversations and fun we have, then you would understand =)

Anywhoo! Got the lawn mowed today and that about did me in. Of course, mowing it in incredibly hot weather is slightly stoopid, but when you are as stubborn as me, triple digit weather doesn't keep you from doing stuff like that lol The only thing that makes me feel good about my sore, worn out bod - is that #1 I probably lost weight and #2 I don't have to do it for another week. Sometimes its REALLY tempting to hire someone to mow it, tho.....

I amazed my husband today with my vocabulary of words again, too lol Actually, it may have been last night that I did that - but its an ongoing thing with us pretty much =) I stated something in a matter of fact way, and he retorts 'why thank you, Captain Obvious'. Soooo.....not to be one to let it slip by, I argue with, 'actually, I don't think a gal can be a Captain can she? Isnt there a feminine version of the word you can use'?

Needless to say, I get an incredulous look from him - which I take as a cue to supply him with a version of the word to use. I look back at him and ask, 'Can't you use Captainness or sumpin'?' - which is met by another incredulous stare and snort of laughter.

Hmmm.....I dunno.....was it sumpin I said? lol

Seriously, tho, I DO know that is NOT a word. But darnit! It should be - or at least someone should humor me and let me use that word if I wanna! But, then again, my husband is the kind of guy who does not like Rachael Ray (TV cooking gal) saying 'sammies' for sandwhiches. So maybe he is just trying to nip those tendencies of mine in the bud before I become another Rachael Ray and annoy the heck out of him =)

Friday, August 3, 2007

Yayyyyy for Friday!

I have been REALLY ready for this Friday since about, ummmm......20 Fridays ago lol I am now officially on vacation - wahooo! Not to mention, my husband made it home tonite from Ohio/New Hampshire after being gone for about 4 days. And not to sound too sappy - but I missed him pretty bad =/ Even if we are just sitting in the same room checking email, its amazing how comforting it is to have him near.

Anywhooo! I will stop being all lovey dovey - don't wanna make ya all gag with my pathetic-ness lol (is pathetic-ness a word? =)) I did have a great night out with the gals yesterday. We went to see the latest 'Harry Potter' movie in the theatre, and I was impressed. I am not saying I am gonna rush out to watch the other movies or anything - but it certainly was NOT boring.

After the movie, we hung out a bit and chatted and then each headed home. Unfortunetely for me, about 5 minutes from home on K7, I get pulled over for speeding *uggh* So, ummm......I now have another ticket to worry about *SIGH* The first thing out of the cop's mouth is 'Do you know how fast you were going'? And the first thing out of mine was.....'70'. He promptly tells me that I am wrong and that it was 75 - which I grumpily ask myself, 'then why the heck did he even ask me?' *grrr*

Needless to say, for some reason today, all I could think about was those 5 measley miles per hour difference. And all day today I constantly thought of the movie 'Forrest Gump' - in which his Mom is trying to keep her son from going to a special school because he was 5 points below the normal range. She quotes 'surely something can must be done' in her very Southern voice. And thats how I feel about my ticket darnit! lol Surely I didnt HAVE to get the ticket did I? Surely he could have given me a warning, couldnt he? Surely he could have seen I was tired and contrite, right?

Altho, thats where the similarity ends I think - as after Sally Fields says that in the movie, the next scene is her son sitting on the porch hearing the guy have sex with his Mom. And THAT was not an option for me! I just wanted out of the darn ticket lol

Nuthin' can stop a dawg

I swear, sometimes I think my dogs know just when I need a bit of humor in my life lol Today, for instance, I came home after a somewhat stressful day at work. I let the dogs out of their 'corral' area (which is a gate hooked up to the back door, which conveniently has a doggie door for them to go out to do whatever they gotta do) and went promptly upstairs to relax and check email.

After a bit, I decide the dogs have waited long enuf for me to reappear - so I open the door to the bedroom to find both of them sitting there waiting on me =) I am somewhat amazed no whimper escaped their yappy mouths, but...... anyway! We all head downstairs to do what is expected of me - to feed them. Since the corral was still up, they had to run around it to get to their food dishes. In the process of this, the youngest one rounds the corner at breakneck speed and slides on the pergoe floor and promptly falls over with a thud. While I am doubling over with laughter, she hurriedly rights herself up and proceeds to the food dish as tho nothing has happened lol

Maybe its something ya got to see for yourself to truly enjoy, but that young dawg just made my nite =)

Wacky Ole Wednesday

Well, its not really wacky - but I didnt particularly care for my Wednesday or really hate it - so it seemed like a nice neutral adjective lol Work wasn't the greatest - due to having a meeting to sit at for an hour of it today, work to get done before I take off for vacation next week and one of the new gals hired in our department next to me constantly saying 'Buh Bye' ......I, ummm.....felt a bit hostile and grumpy by the end of my work day.

I seriously do NOT understand the necessity of saying 'Buh Bye'. Perhaps it is a big pet peeve of mine, but can the gal possibly sound any more immature and condescending with that word? *uggh* I can't stand that she has just finished her 4 year college degree and thinks she is full of wisdom now - at least thats how she comes across. Her tone......her attitude....her friggin 'Buh Byes'.....they all make me wanna vomit =P I am sure she thinks 'Buh Bye' is somehow more appropriate to end a work conversation with than my plain old 'goodbyes' - if only I had a 4 year college degree, I would know that I guess. But, alas! I only have a 2 year degree lol

OK.....must stop venting I suppose =)

Buh Bye
