Little Geek Rides Again

Unlike my mumses, who has a whole “birthday Month” (March, in case you were wondering. And also heads up since there are only 31 more days to go before Birthday Month craziness starts. Believe you me; you will be thanking me for the lead time because no one is safe from Birthday Month), I’m happy with “Birthday week”. We started a little early this year on the Saturday before “Birthday Week” and celebrated in small ways until Sunday (day of). I was thoroughly satisfied. I like stringing out my birthday in little bits over a handful of days.

Night of the “Night of”s

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Alllllrighty. Today is the actual day of oldering and…I’m sick. Happy Birthday to me: *YARK*. I totally blame one of the hourlies (not mine, because my hourly can do no wrong and is awesome and all that since she does the part of my job I don’t want to do most of the time. Heh) because he came in Wednesday not looking as spry as he usually does. Then, half way through his shift, he mentions that he has a fever and chills. Fever and ch – WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING AT WORK THEN??!? Crimony.

Birthday Week Proceeds Apace

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

It just keeps getting better! Check this out: This little fella (above) was my birthday present to myself. Booniverse readers, meet Norbert – the cutest crawling eye monster you’ll ever be introduced to. He is also the 2008 Smithee stupid looking monster which means…I’m ahead of the Smithee promotions game. WHOOOO! I’ve got the SLM button designed before the Smithee clips from the Smithee Committee Members are even due. I wrock the wrockage yo.

Apparently, I’d Make an Excellent Dictator

Hee! My mommy gave me a 3 quart casserole dish for my birfday! At least I’m pretty sure it’s a 3 quart casserole dish because I asked for one for Christmas but never got one despite the following conversation:

Me: Hey mumses, if you don’t already have any ideas for a Christmas gift, I could use a 3 quart casserole dish.
Mumses: A 3 quart casserole dish? I’ve got one of those in the cupboard that I never use. You can take it right now…or should I wrap it and put it under the tree? I think I’ll wrap it; I need filler presents.

I mentioned to her that I didn’t get my casserole dish Christmas present when we came back to snag our Christmas loot so Mumses said that she’d wrap it up for my birthday. Thus, I am highly suspect that this is indeed a three quart casserole dish.

Although it could very well be a giant sized Heathkit HD TV. Mumses can be sneaky like that.

That’s Not Perversion, That’s Dedication

Monday, January 21st, 2008

The bug has been a little temperamental with the turn signaling lately and a quick diagnoses by Sis’s mechanic husband (his profession not his composition) assured us that all we needed was a flasher. Of course this set TheMan and I off into little giggle fits because really? Everybody’s problems should be as easy to fix as “needing a flasher”. Then we stepped outside into the 10 degree weather and decided that if anyone was out flashing in this they deserved a medal or at least a standing ovation. That’s dedication to your craft.

Laidoff-a-palooza and Other Weekend Stories

Monday, January 14th, 2008

I made voodoo boss cookies for our impromptu Laidoff-a-palooza party Sunday. Bubbles and Badmovie’s work place decided to up and close their Michigan office and unless the employees want to work in Kansas, Virginia or North Carolina they are out of a job. Bubbles is a year away from completing a specialized degree and Badmovie just bought a house so neither took the company up on the offer. Besides, who’s to say that in a year’s time they wont also close those offices and offer promises of unemployment or relocation to Hoboken?

Swish, Gargle, Swallow or Spit

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

Hey, do you know what Maalox does other than sooth a burning throat? I looked it up and lo! It’s also an anti-diarrhea medicine. An anti-diarrhea medicine I’ve been gargling and swallowing two teaspoons of every four hours for the past two days now. This explains some things. I think from here on out I’m going to be a spitter rather than a swallower (hee) because swallowing is causing hereto unanticipated secondary effects.
