site thanks to Elaine... You have an air of intelligence about you, some might even perceive you as being stuck up. You seem like you may be a nice person when you're not throwing one of your ever-present hissy fits and being a bitch to everyone. And take off your socks when you make whoopie, he hates it!

I had to come in to work today...I know most of you are home enjoying a vacation day and getting ready to celebrate New Year's Eve...I don't have that luxury b/c I used up all my vacation days!! Saturday was our family Christmas. We did a scavenger hunt for the kids and took them on a hayride. Most of the family were there. I think only a couple were absent. All in all it was a pretty good time!!
From toilets and crickets to ripped pants and going over the edge...and from there it simply digressed!! Where oh where to begin!! Friday night was so interesting I just have to share (in detail) with the rest of the world...the cyberworld anyway and that is where most of our friends reside a lot of the time anyway!!! EJ and Lawrence met me at work around six p.m. and we headed off to Elaine's. And for the record I was the only one to notice (besides Robert) that EJ had cut off all his hair and was almost clean-shaven!!! Kudos for me!! I should have known the night would be interesting when I missed the turn off to the beltway...I also took a wrong turn on the way back to the office...but one U-turn later we were back on track, but I was blinded b/c EJ flashed a pic of me driving. This was the first time he had seen me without my naked ladies shirt, I guess he thought it had to be documented! When we arrived at Elaine's she was indisposed and couldn't open the…

I'm tired...I'm going to bed...
About the only thing I got accomplished at work today was getting new comments for my blog. I wasn't able to get in too much b/c they were down for maintenance for a while...guess that means I really shouldn't be working on personal stuff at work! What else was there to do, though?!?! Work??? We just finished dinner - stuffed bell peppers and zuchini...it was pretty good. And then I fixed a hot cup of chamomile herbal tea with honey...that is quickly becoming a nightly tradition with me. It is really relaxing and nice to have while I am reading. I am so thankful that tomorrow is Friday. I can't wait for the holidays to be over with and being at work while everyone is either vacationing or talking about how great the holidays are isn't the way I want to spend my time right now. Friday night I think I am going out with Elaine and EJ and one of EJ's friends. I have no idea where, though...Elaine, you'll have to fill me in tomorrow sometime! Saturday morn…

I wanted to share a picture of my beautiful baby boy...
FOUND: One blind, epileptic, white Bichon wearing a Texas A&M sweater!!! Yeah, you read that correctly! Last night we went to look at Christmas lights and instead found a lost dog!! We asked everyone we saw, but no one had ever seen the dog before. His collar only had the vet's information...not the owner's, so we had to wait until this morning to find out anything about it. After I left for work mother called the vet and found out the dog's name is Cotton and that he has seizures...luckily he didn't have one while we had her b/c I don't know how I would have handled that. The vet called the owners who in turn called our house and immediately came to get the dog. She said they had left her outside while they were gone and when they returned she had got out somehow! They searched for a hour or so...I am just glad we found out who she belonged to. Chinook was getting jealous!!!

Well, today we are at my sister's house. I spent the night here so that I could watch her kids open their presents this morning. She and I played Santa yesterday and wrapped presents for them...it was fun to watch them this morning! Then after a trip home to shower and fetch Mother (blurry pic) and Grannie we came back to start cooking for dinner. We are having grilled fish, fried shrimp, hush-puppies, steamed veggies, and for Grannie - chicken, b/c she doesn't like anything out of the water!! Macon has been upstairs all morning playing on his new PS2..and Ross has been on the computer most of the morning, begging to have a taste of the Shrimp that is getting done, (I think Donna has been pacifying him was hush-puppies, though!), while John works on getting our fish grilled outside! As you can tell, I am trying to get the hang of my new digital toy...Dad isn't here today, b/c as I stated before he had to go to work, but we all spoke to him this morning and wished …

Sorry, I've been out of pocket for a few days. We went to Broaddus Friday afternoon, but things were so busy beforehand that I never got a chance to sit down at the computer...here's a quick (I hope) synopsis: I took Thursday off from work so I decided to move my dentist appointment up a few hours...so around 9:00 I headed to the dentist's office to get my teeth cleaned. Afterwards I decided to run a few errands since I was out and about and it was a beautiful day. I headed to downtown Humble to the camera store. There is a camera store there that has a darkroom that you can rent...sometimes I wish I just joined there instead of getting my own darkroom, b/c I HATE mixing chemistry. I don't mind cleaning up the darkroom at all, but I don't like to set it up!! So, I took my camera in for servicing, no not my new digital. I have a canon that I bought right after I got my first job out of college. Now I mainly use this one for black and white...although it has truly…

Well, mother and dad and I did our Santa Claus tonight. Dad is leaving to go to work on Friday so we had our Christmas tonight. Tomorrow we are having a small family gathering to have Christmas dinner, too...this way he gets to have all the xmas celebration that we will be experiencing...just on a smaller scale! Although, there was nothing small about tonight!!! I must say we all pretty much made out like bandits tonight!!! I did get the camera that I wanted! I never dreamed they were going to buy it...I had found several online that I was going to buy, but they said to wait and I knew immediately that they had bought it for. I'm not big on surprises so I have a tendency to find out things beforehand! There were a lot of other things, too...but I won't get into it all...EXCEPT to say that they got me a brushguard for me jeep...that was amazing. I never expected that...but was thrilled nonetheless!!! Well, I took off work tomorrow and Friday, but have a pretty busy schedu…

Okay, I am definitely receding into the Bah Humbug state over here...this is the longest holiday ever, ever, ever... I can’t stand the shopping and the crowds and all the food...okay, my metabolism is gone...forever...and it shows with all the chocolate that is pushed upon me at every turn...(hey, the title is Daily Venting, so deal with some real venting for a moment...). I don’t think I could make it the rest of this week if I didn’t have vacation time... ON THE OTHER HAND...last night with Kenny and Elaine was a lot of fun. We met at Red Lobster and I got to taste Snow Crab Legs for the first time. Strange, seafood being my favorite food and I have never tasted Snow Crab Legs...they were really delicious. Elaine bought me a wonderful journal...yes, I still use an old fashioned hand written journal. She also bought me a leather pen/pencil caddy and both gifts were in a great little red canvas bag...anyone who knows me well enough, knows that there are three things that could …

This is actually yesterday’s post, but I never got around to actually getting it posted... Well, from work I can see the pics...if you can, though, is the question!!! After dropping Chinook off yesterday I made the trek back upstairs, peeled the shirt and pants I was wearing, pulled my PJs back on and laid down to read...er, I mean sleep...well, I did both for a while, for two hours. When I awoke I realized it was time to be at the groomers...so I was a bit late needless to say. Poor baby, he was whimpering and crying...he always does at the vet’s or the groomers. After returning home and getting lunch the plan was to get up, get dressed (AGAIN) and brave the crowds...didn’t happen. Well, at least not for a while. I returned again to my book and between REM cycles and the Quidditch match (I’m reading Harry Potter, Year 4), I didn’t make it out of the house for a few hours! I decided if the company of fellow shoppers would get me motivated...so my parents went out with me …

Well, it's getting down to the wire now...I still have a few presents left to buy...hopefully I'll get finished today. We had our office Christmas party last night at our admin's house. It turned out really well...and I think everyone had a really good time. I was so tired this morning, though. It was nearly one when we left and I had to get up early today to bring Chinook to the groomers. He looks so precious now!! When I get some new pics taken I'll post them...not that you'll be able to see, though b/c Angel Fire doesn't seem to be displaying any of my pics these days!!

Okay, this is getting really irritating...both sites I have used in the past to keep my pics have been giving me problems. One day one is down the next day it is the other... Last night went pretty well. Went to Three Cheers with some coworkers for Happy Hour...then, as foretold, headed to Prive to meet Elaine and everyone to celebrate her birthday. On the way I stopped off and met with friends to plan dinner. We went to Niko Nikos on the way. It is almost directly across from Prive Lounge and is by far one of my favorite places to eat!!! We had a good crowd out last night...but UTMB (I think) was having a Christmas gathering so the place was entirely too crowded...we were outside and most people preferred to stay in so it wasn't too crowded for us! We had a good time, though. Well, my office party is starting soon so I need to head upstairs to start getting ready...

Last night went pretty well. Went to Three Cheers with some coworkers for Happy Hour...then, as foretold, headed to Prive to meet Elaine and everyone to celebrate her birthday. On the way I stopped off and met with friends to plan dinner. We went to Niko Nikos on the way. It is almost directly across from Prive Lounge and is by far one of my favorite places to eat!!! We had a good crowd out last night...but UTMB (I think) was having a Christmas gathering so the place was entirely too crowded...we were outside and most people preferred to stay in so it wasn't too crowded for us! We had a good time, though.

Well, my office party is starting soon so I need to head upstairs to start getting ready...
Whew!! I came into the office this morning, turned on my computer, immediately had meetings and then didn't get back to my desk until nearly noon!!!!!!!! Just in time to make it to lunch with some coworkers and one of their friends!! It has been such a busy week...and too short to get everything done! I may be spending time Sunday night working...I can't tonight b/c we are having Happy Hour after work, then it is off to Prive to celebrate Elaine's birthday with friends!!! Saturday morning I am going to TRY to get up early enough to take care of some errands and maybe do a little shopping...then we have our office Christmas Party at 6:00 p.m. Sunday I have to finish my Christmas shopping b/c there won't be another chance until Christmas... So...it's gonna be a busy weekend!!! I just hope I can get all this done today...or at least enough that the rest can wait until Monday!

SOLUTION FOR THE LACK OF ATTENTION BY THE MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT... Well, I don't like running back and forth between floors every time I am thirsty...so I have just started getting HOT water from the coffee maker!!! No, I don't drink it hot! I fill my cup with ICE and then get HOT water from the spout on the coffee maker, which is usually for making hot tea, cocoa, etc...after a few secs some of the ice melts, but the water is cold and drinkable...unlike the water from the DRINKING WATER fountain!!!!! You ever have one of those days where no matter what happens, everything irritates you...well, I am having one of the LIVES!!!!!!!!! So I am not going to apologize for the depressing entries....maybe I'll do that tomorrow!!! I think we might be going to Nit Noi tonight...that will definitely elivate my mood!!!
For your perusing enjoyment...
MAINTENANCE ISSUES Okay, I know we are in a big building and there are a lot of problems that the maintenance department has to take care of...BUT we called about our water filter (the water had sediment in it) three days ago...TODAY they inform us that the person we contacted wasn't the person that could help us...and instead of passing on the information to the appropriate person...they waited until TODAY to call back and tell us this!!! IRRITATING!! So we have been going down to the 8th floor whenever we want to get H20!!!! Sorry...just had to vent a bit!
Well, I finished Year 3 of the Harry Potter series...Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. So far this is by far and away my favorite!!! After seeing the movie on Monday I was afraid it would change all the images I had conjured on my own, but the only one that really changed was Snape...who was played by Alan Rickman. I had a look alike, but the personalities were different so I a struggling to get back to my own image of Snape!!! We had a typical Egyptian dinner last night of Melokiya . It was delicious and one of my favorites. One of dad's coworkers came to dinner last night and every time he comes to visit my mother makes Melokiyah b/c he likes it so much...which is fine with me!!!! The weather turned really nasty yesterday...it started raining around 4 I guess...I was working so hard yesterday I don't really know what time it started! But I finished my book around 1:00 this morning and it was still pouring!!! Nearly twelve hours of hard rain...I don't know…

Monday Monday Well, the weekend has come and gone and I realize the more that do and the closer we get to the holidays, the fewer people I pass in the hall on my way to get coffee at work! Ah, those fortunate people who have weeks and weeks of vacation time to take...how lucky I was to use mine up in Spain in March!!! hee hee... Although, this time of year the office is the last place I think about being!!!! As you can obviously tell since I am blogging in the middle of the day instead of going through the mounds of paper work that keeps growing in my inbox and scattered to the far corners of my desk!!

TODAY'S ACCOMPLISHMENTS Well, I finally got things done today that I have been wanting and needing to get done!!! After breakfast this morning everyone (I had family in this weekend) headed off to the mall...and after setting up my AT&T account (website - don't know if they are going to be a good service, though) I got dressed and my niece and I headed off to the mall. We got there before noon and surprisingly the mall wasn't near as crowded as I feared it would be! I would finally get to buy the first of my Christmas presents!!! I had to keep reminding myself, though, that I was there to buy presents for everyone else...not for myself, but what was the first thing I bought??? Shoes - for me!!!! Oh well...I deserved them - and really needed them, too!! Then on to Christmas shopping!! After a little while we met up with the rest of the family and they all wanted to go see a movie...so off we went!! My mother, father, aunt, and uncle went to see Behind Enemy …
