explain to me how this makes sense

Your boss e-mails you to tell you that the e-mail service is down.

Think about that for a minute.

How does this make any sense? On what planet would this seem to work? And then giggle to yourself because it actually did my boyfriend, this morning. His boss is just *that-much* closer to the nut house.

new toys and Turkey hangovers

okay so it's been a while and I apologize I have been no other excuse is other than the truth. I have a brand-new toy now, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 9 and of course I am using this as an opportunity to play with it and test it out. it's working pretty good so far and truthfully it would be nice if I could get it to work with everything I use on a regular basis.

now as for productivity lord only knows. It may actually be worse for me simply because it allows my mind wander while I'm trying to get my thoughts in order which is of course never is easy as you think. it is until you suddenly are given the liberties to do whatever you want with your hands instead of focusing on typing. maybe doing the keyboard tap dance it may not always be bad.

anyway, back to real deal. Yesterday was turkey day, and I'm hoping that you like I, stuffed ourselves silly. I'm lying because I was good and did not proceed to eat my weight in food, at least not at the dinner table. so therefore doesn't really count as stuffing myself and I don't care what you say that's the truth I'm sticking to.

I took my mother to my boyfriend's family's home before the meal, and it seemed like everything was okay. I'm not certain however simply because there is the possibility that my mother felt some awkwardness at being the only white woman at the meal. It's a new experience for her as it is always been the opposite for me being the only biracial girl that most appeals. She was quite quiet, in fact much quieter than I have ever seen her. However, that may just be simply because my boyfriend's family are quite talkative. I'm going to chalk it up to nervousness. In which case that makes the evening even more delicious simply for the nerve factor.

I only hope they were impressed with my abilities to talk smack with the rest of them. Remember I am still a white girl at heart and I'm learning.

So much for keeping it real.

You stay well and healthy don't forget to jog off those extra 5 pounds that you gained yesterday I hope to hear from everyone ,when they get the chance. you can use the comments or you can e-mail me as I do check my mail. Not regularly, when it's only necessary. much love from the left Coast

RIP Ed Bradley

I know - it is a terrible loss, and I am a day late... but it's well documented. I will refer to the many blogs/newscasts regarding Mr. Bradley's work:

Ok, ok - everyone knows the news

or maybe you didn't. Aside from this being one of the more happier years that I've had in 12... I think I might actually be in love with germany now.

Just days after his resignation, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is about to face more repercussions for his involvement in the troubled wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. New legal documents, to be filed next week with Germany's top prosecutor, will seek a criminal investigation and prosecution of Rumsfeld, along with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, former CIA director George Tenet and other senior U.S. civilian and military officers, for their alleged roles in abuses committed at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison and at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Whether or not this actually comes to fruition, I think I'm going to have to find a german and shake his/her hand for coming to our rescue. Oh... happy days are here again!!!!

I have to stay optimistic.
