  1. Mmmm Reese's peanut butter eggs. You have to by the ones sold individually or in the two pack, the ones in the bag are different.
  2. Lunch from the boss today...it was pizza and salad which is what I had for dinner last night. But hey it was free!
  3. It's been snowing since last night, the forecasters were wrong again. Can I have that job for what they get paid and it's ok to be wrong?
  4. Procurement screwed up my conference registration-have me leaving and returning a day earlier than what was requested, RT's registration is correct. There's a byzantine process to get it corrected that has taken to phone calls, me telling a rep they didn't need to be foul on the phone, and an email.
  5. Pondering post conference accommodations and rental car strategy so we can show my other half some of the great things about my home state.

1. I've never eaten a Peeps.
2. RJ took the afternoon off to paint, so I had to cancel my appointment to get my car fixed, and hurry up and finish sanding the doors. Did he mention I was sanding them?
3. OK, I gave up on the fifth door, partly because I had to take a cat to the vet, and mostly because my arms were about to fall off.
4. RJ sanded the last door.
5. Grilled baby backs for dinner tonight!

1. Nothing sucks like trying to explain to a low bidder why you didn't choose them.
2. And then them telling you, "Why of course I can do exactly what you want".
3. Even when they hemmed and hawed in the interview.
4. I hate dealing with stupid stuff on Fridays.
5. Other than that, I'm doing great!!!! (insert Tony the Tiger voice)

It's Friday.
I don't have to work this weekend or be volunturd to open/close the building for the small business development class.
My boss is wasting her time today in a sexual harassment workshop-she laughed when I told her my Cliff Notes version: "Don't do it!"
There's one lady that works in a different department that will spend 10 minutes in the bathroom talking on the phone knowing full well others are probably waiting to actually use the toilet.
I don't have to go anywhere today :)
