Go farmers!

J is one my most faithful readers of the blog and he has been asking me to do my post on Farm Aid ever since we got home at 3am Sunday morning. So here goes. Farmers are outstanding in their field. No really, people, they are. So support them. (PS SILAdventure, I got about 8…

7 years

I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since the Sept. 11 attacks. I was living in Phoenix at the time and getting ready for work. SmokinHotRoommate came out of her room and said we needed to turn on the TV because a plane just hit a building in NYC. What? What a freakish accident, I…

Babies in NJ

J and I went to NJ this weekend primarily for my friend Hallmark4Ever’s baby shower. It was supposed to be a surprise, but she knew every outing could be “it” as she is due in just 7 weeks!! We did surprise her Monday morning though with a belated bday celebration at her favorite diner (she…

Festivities cont.

Since I’m not the most computer-savvy, I find it easier to post pictures when there aren’t a lot of words. So I decided to break up the “festivities” post for my sanity. Sorry for the interrupted reading. After Dville, we drove up to the Chesapeake Bay to meet J’s group of friends for some camping…

Festivities

This has been quite an active two weeks! I promised a recap of my surprise party with some more pictures, so here goes … I was surprised for the party. I had some idea that J was up to something, but I wasn’t sure when and what exactly. I thought we were going to my…

Fun with imaging

I use ichat for work every day. It’s awesome. But that’s besides the point. We each have our symbol showing we are online. Mine has always been a firefly. There weren’t many choices. A lot of people use dog symbols, which is fine, but it gets confusing. My one co-worker created a mini-him for his…

ZZZZZZZZZ

Raise your hand if you are staying up too late watching the Olympics. Yeah, that would be us. I can’t say I’ve always been a die-hard fan of the Olympics. I mean I would watch here and there. But this time around, I’ve been watching just about every night until my eyelids can’t stay open.…

Say wha now?

Some of our friends call J and I active. Hiking. Running. Paddling. Rock Climbing. Sure, those things are not on everyone’s agenda. Nor do most of our friends aspire to hike all the high peaks in the country and spend months in Alaska living off the land. So yes we have lofty and different goals.…

Some people are ballsy

So I was covering the results of this survey from CareerBuilder.com, and it seems 8 percent of workers admit lying on their resume. However, 49 percent of employers have caught job applicants in a lie! Most employers give the person the boot, but I’m more curious what the person says after they are caught in…

The glass is half empty.

I am sad tomorrow is August 1st. The summer is coming to an end!!! We have another jam-packed August with some camping trips and other travel. So the month will fly and before you know it, fall is here. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the seasons. But I am digging the ability to…

In and Out

No, not the burger joint. I wish. I’m talking about SILAdventure. She was here this week on a layover to Iceland. That’s right, Iceland. I wish again. She is going there for 2 weeks to celebrate her graduation from radiology school and for a wedding (how’s that for a destination wedding?). Her layover was just…
