1. One drawback of consecutive days of rain is worms in driveways and parking lots
2. I tried to look down carefully this morning walking through the parking lot
3. I've concluded that sometimes it's best under wormy conditions just to not look down at all
4. So far no tornado warnings this year - this is about the time they usually start up
5. The rain is great for the soil, but following immediately on the footsteps of extreme cold-windy conditions means yet more delay in setting up the greenhouse and planting

1. I always feel bad the day after the rain when the dried worms appear on the sidewalks.
2. Rain the past few days, rain today, rain all weekend.
3. I'm ready for May flowers.
4. My office plants are not happy.
5. My green thumb has turned blackish.

1. I have consulted the magic 8 ball...
2. It is uncertain if today will be a good day
3. It is unlikely that my favorite code violation guy will come in today
4. It is positive that guy will be stuck in the '80's meeting minutes trying to prove he's grandfathered in (he's not)
5. I can't believe my daughters don't know about the double birthday on Bubble Guppies.

I think the double birthday is for Hink's little bubble guppies.


Btw, what dvd are you?

1. I'm the only one in our office today. Too quiet here in the basement dungeon, save for the occasional crying child from the Health Department upstairs.

2. Saw one of our Commissioners who has been locked in a battle with us on a code enforcement/minimum housing situation. I have been told he called our department "incompetent" and he hates us all. He looked happy to see me. Good or bad, I do not know.

3. Planning Board Chair is asking me about our Clerk to the Board of Commissioners change, not sure what information I should give to him, its a very delicate situation I believe.

4. Drove to work for the first time this week today. Can't stand walking in the rain, no matter how short the walk is.

5. Weekly ritual of Bojangles for Friday lunch. Already hungry.

Is it 4:30 yet?

1. My baby has pink-eye today.
2. I have quite a lot of pieces of paper to generate today and I am so tired I can't put words together properly.
3. Ginger tea is pretty good. Especially when that drive-thru cheeseburger from last night isn't sitting so well.
4. I really crave talking to educated people now that I've moved rural. There are plenty of smart people, not so many educated people. Both are cool, but I miss one.
5. I'd rather listen to NPR fundraising than about any other station on the radio doing anything.

1) Had lunch with my old supervisor today; I miss working with him
2) I gave him some info I haven't shared with any one else at the city - he seemed understanding about the situation
3) While in that building, my dept. head saw me there, and gave me a really strange look
4) I bet she wonders what the hell I was doing there, since I haven't worked in that building for 3 years
5) I guess she doesn't know my old supervisor is a reference, and that we chat at least once a month

1. Sadly, I have to work this weekend and do a site inspection for a business event on Saturday....the annual Hooters swimsuit competition. TRUE
2. I would say that my mind is scattered today except it actually seems rather focused on one thing (see #1)
3. I kinda wish sometimes I had an extremely common name like John Smith
4. Steampunk carries no stigma in my book
5. You'd think the folks working for NPR would be a friendly bunch of crunchy types, but in truth they're as ruthless as any Wall Street suit you'll encounter.

1. I am glued to the news out of Boston, too.
2. I don't understand how two young men who lived in the U.S. for as long as they did could have so much hate inside them. :-@
3. I am having lunch with an acquaintance today.
4. My ability to focus this morning is not very good.
5. I should update my mental tapedeck to a mental MP3 player. ;)

1. I spend way too much of my time outside work thinking about work
2. Immediate family member came to visit me two days ago, I only took Monday off and wish and I feel guilty now; I wish I had taken today off work as well
3. I'm super tired and cranky and have to take said family member out to bar hop downtown tonight, so I better wake up
4. I underestimated how amazing it is getting to stop at home fur lunch.
5. I didn't get to go home for lunch today (too busy) and now I can't seem to get anything done. :not:
