    1. I happen to know wombats smell bad
    2. it seems like whenever I get onion breath it lasts for hours and hours.
    3. I still have not given up beer (in fact I bought cases of Schlenkerla and Old Rasputin on my birthday)
    4. I like the name of the old Confederate flag - the 'stars & bars'
    5, I have had 'Tubthumping' going through my head for the past two days
    6. I do not like the band Chumbawumba
    7. The first James Bond movie I ever saw was Goldfinger when it was on network tv sometime around 1975.
    8. I think it's important that groups like the SPCA exist but I doubt I'll ever volunteer my time to help them, no matter how worthy their cause
    9. My favorite design of bird head is found on birds like Blue Jays, Cedar Waxwings and Cardinals
    10. I noticed young Anakin used the made up word 'sleemo' (slime-o) when referring to someone he didn't like. I thought Lucas could have done better.

    10. If you don't know who Laura Nyro is, do yourself a favor and look her up on YouTube. She is awesome.

    A few months ago I had a cold and was also feeling unusually sleepy so I started to wonder if I had mono… on the 3rd day I realized I had accidentally been taking ibuprofen PM instead of the regular kind! It was torture trying to stay awake at work until I figured it out!

    3. I am tired of people being up in my business.
    4. I want a slurpee. Coke flavored, but a slurpee.
    5. I once ate so many Oreo cookies that I threw up. I laughed and laughed. Oh to be 32 again.

    7. I need an attitude adjustment.
    8. If I were a color, I think I would be blue-green. Wait, I am a color, but it's just sort of pink-ish.
    9. I'd rather be blue-green
    10. I don't have a favorite bird-head shape. I think maybe people shouldn't have favorite bird-head shapes, even though it seems harmless enough.

    I broke it throwing a kick in tae kwon do. Swelled up to the size and color of an egg plant and hurt like a !@#$%^%$. I learned there is nothing they can do when you break a toe.

    You have an office cat??????? That is awesome. A co-worker and I made a house for our imaginary office cat. Now it just sits empty in the break room. Poor Princess.

    He's a stray that lives in the woods behind the office. He shows up every morning and greets us. We've been trying to pet him since he showed up about a year ago, but he still won't let us. He has walked about 10' feet inside several times.

    1. My daughter asked me to take her to the library this afternoon so she could get books for her science fair project.
    2. After I asked, she told me her project is to determine whether mice are color blind.
    3. No, she told me, mom had not okayed her getting mice but her teacher had approved the science project.
    4. Considering buying a cordless electric mower to replace the one that got nicked in my garage burglary last week.
    5. My front lawn is a disaster after replacing the water, sewer, and gas lines this spring and summer followed by a prolonged drought.
    6. I've lost 31 pounds since mid-April. However, the denture diet is not recommended.
    7. Council meeting tonight and I'm front and center. Short Council agendas have a way of getting off-track, though.
    8. We are filing in court to stop the county from making a big mistake. They didn't listen when we told them, perhaps they'll listen to a judge.
    9. We don't let our older orange long-hair tabby outside anymore. He looks sad about it.
    10. This has been a long four-day work week.

    1. My garden was a total failure this year.
    2. I’m obsessed with biking and “bikepacking” and have spent far too many hours pouring over maps for a trip I may never take.
    3. My kids have both moved to new schools and are doing great.
    4. I wish my morning bike commute was longer.
    5. I’m in line to interview for a Director position but the board is dragging its feet and keeps putting off the process. Was supposed to happen in the first week of August but now we are pushed to the first week of October.
    6. Looked at a house yesterday. Thinking about moving.
    7. I’m spending next week at a conference in Burlington.
    8. My 12 year old dog doesn’t know how to chew bones. He just walks around the house with them daintily in his mouth, drooling on everything.
    9. I dropped my phone in the river, but it still works!
    10. Sometimes I want to be a stay-at-home dad

    1. The nonprofit organization where I was a college intern had an office cat... he had only three legs, but he got around just fine.
    2. Our dog has been acting really neurotic lately.
    3. It really annoys me when someone says that they will call you right after they finish what they're doing, and then you don't hear from them.
    4. I haven't watched any of the Republican or Democratic conventions.
    5. I'd rather watch Jon Stewart on The Daily Show than the "real" news.
    6. I can't keep up with all the e-newsletters I receive. Most of 'em sit in my Inbox for months until I go through all of them at once.
    7. I'm still using Office 2003.
    8. A distant cousin who I've never met has a high-level job with one of our senators; her name keeps showing up as "Someone You Might Know" in LinkedIn, but I haven't connected.
    9. We have an old horse barn on our property that my husband is trying to fix up, even though it would be cheaper to build a new one.
    10. I'm looking forward to having lunch with a business colleague tomorrow.

    1. I have a crush on Andrew Bird, I can’t stop listening to his new album.
    2. I’m going through a big life event and I just want to skip the next few months… need to find me a wormhole or Delorean or something.
    3. I have bought more new shoes in the past six months than I did in the previous six years because of this stupid website Zulily. I’ve cut myself off now, seriously.
    4. I went beer tasting this past weekend and verified yet again that I don’t like IPAs. But the girly beers and the stouts were tasty (Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company).
    5. I wish my sister and I lived closer together (close enough to catch a movie).
    6. I wish my mom lived closer (but not too close, like a 2-3 hour drive away).
    7. I keep seeing people use the word “Segway” when they mean “segue” and it bothers me (saw it again this morning).
    8. I’m seriously not a Grammar Nazi in general, though.
    9. Our office decided to start using one space in between sentences instead of two in documents and it’s more of a challenge than I thought it would be.
    10. I like puns.

    1) I wish I could have an Abita Beer, like Dandy did. I used to live about seven miles from the brewery.
    2) The new puppy looks at me like I am a better person than I am.
    3) The cat looks at me like I am a worse person than I am.
    4) I enjoy making my son scoop up the puppy poop when we go for a walk.
    5) I am glad it looks like summer is over.
    6) I wish the smoke would clear out of the air, though.
    7) I saw a woman today that made me glad humans are mammals.
    8) Louis CK is a funny, funny dude.
    9) I miss the days when all you needed to fix a bicycle was an adjustable wrench and a screw driver.
    10) I think that otters are the coolest animals ever but would make very bad pets.
