*cough cough* I am going to whine for a while...I went to Lafayette this week with some coworkers, one of which was sick, and consequently I think I am getting sick now...just a cold, but I am not a great patient. We just returned from Joe's. Today was one of our coworker's b'day so we took her out for lunch. B/c we told them it was her birthday they made her stand up and hula hoop in front of everyone while we sang happy birthday to her!! And everytime she dropped it we had to stop...we could only sing while she had it spinning...took a while though, b/c come to find out Ann is a terrible hula hooper!!!!! But we had a good time watching her try!!! She did try to spin it around her arm instead, but that was a flop b/c it flew off and hit a lady at the next table!!!! Good job Ann!!!
hehe... Merry Christmas!!!

Well, we made it to Lafayette this evening...it took four and a half hours b/c of all the road construction on I-10!!!! So we didn't get here until 6:30, but the terrible delays were put out of our mind by the delicious dinner we had at Cafe Vermilionvile!! This was a new one for me. I like to try a new restaurant every time we come down here! The restaurant is set in a historic 1800 Vermilionvile Inn. The menu is French and Cajun seafood dishes. Where we were seated one wall was nothing but windows of several different styles...and had a pass-through fire place into the next dining room. It was really a nice setting for dinner! Well, Ann and I are planning on getting up early to get to the gym before breakfast so I better get to bed so that I can get a few hours of sleep!! Night Night...

Well, now it is back to the grind!! I hope the holidays were good to everyone...we had a nice time. Thursday mother cooked a turkey at the house and my sister and her family came over...then Friday we all headed up to East Texas to my Grannie's house. This is her back in August when we all got together to celebrate her 87th birthday! I miss not living close to her anymore. We had a good time Friday, though. Brad fried a turkey (mmm mmm) and all my brothers and sisters came with their families and my uncle and his kids and their families! It was nice to see everyone and put me more in the holiday spirit than I had been! Saturday my sister and I had to be up at 5 a.m. to pick my brother-in-law up from work and since we were already up we decided to head on to Garden Ridge afterwards. She decided this year to have a small tree at her house and I found some things for the office! James came down from Maryland with his girlfriend Sandi on Saturday. His daughter Dena had…

Okay...it's now official...I am completely addicted!!!! I logged onto my computer at work today...and the first thing I did was start on my blog!!!!! Elaine...I have you to blame for this 100%!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...but thanks!!! Yesterday's lunch turned out very well...there is hardly anyone here today, though. Most everyone took today as a vacation day...being lower on the totem pole (and taking most of my vacation in March), I won't be taking my remaining vacation until December...will still be hanging out in Houston, though! Well, just wanted to say Good Morning to all...

Okay...I am obsessed now!!! I have never played with HTML before and Elaine has me addicted now!!! Another great source I have found it this site that I found earlier today! For those of us who are visual learners, this is a great asset to learning HTML. It is an interactive tutorial site that let you see what you are doing and practice it as you go along. Due to the fact that I found this site around 10:00 this morning, I really haven't accomplished a lot since then!!! Shhh... Well, dinner turned out wonderful! Everyone is so stuffed and sleepy now (so I don't feel so bad about goofing this afternoon...hehehe)!! But that is what turkey does to you...makes ya so tired!!!! Well, the bossman is prowling around so I think I'll shut it down for a little while!! Oh...and don't be scared by the colors...I'm learning and playing...once I finish trying out every one of them, I'll settle on something tasteful!!!! Maybe...
Getting Closer A friend sent this out this morning...and I thought I would share!!! For anyone who doesn't get this, here is an article that explains it!! We are having a pre-Thanksgiving dinner at work today. Everyone in our department, which is about 60+ people brought food to share!! There are about five here that are pretty international and usually bring wonderful dishes!! Being Egyptian, I try to bring dishes that are inindigenous Egypt!!! Today I didn't though...I thought I would do something easy...good ole' reliable fruit salad!!

Well, I started this once before, but ended up deleting it b/c I didn't have the time to keep it updated!! I am going to approach it once more and see if I do a better job this time... I am currently starting the process for grad school. I am going to start January 14 at Sam Houston. They have a satellite campus in The Woodlands which is where our office is going to be moving to in March of next year, so that will be so convenient for me b/c it is just one exit up from the office!!! This morning was kinda hectic here at work...I work for Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. Been here about a year now. This blog is probably going to be pretty boring for a while...at least until I can get Elaine to help me out with my html...I am not that knowledgeable about it!!! So bear with me until that time...
