ooooh, here's a good one!

50 Sheds of Grey for Monday!

this is the second year the kids have been in the running club. The schedule is the same. Yet for some reason this year I keep forgetting and showing up at normal time. It's only 30 minutes long and I always have my sketchbook so no biggie, normally. Today, about halfway through, I got mobbed by a dozen 7-9 year olds who all thought I was the greatest artist ever and had 50 billion questions for me. It was a tad overwhelming.

That's a cleaver way of getting the word in there! Sneaky. I thought that might be the word but 'tot' seemed amusing too.

I believe t*t isn't accepted in the US either. So saying someone is getting on your t*ts just doesn't happen.

I was extremely prepared to go into Target today, make me returns, look for the two things I needed, grab my RX's and get OUT. While I was standing in the return line I glance over at Starbucks and there they are, the elusive basket of cart cup-holders and it wasn't empty!!! I told myself this was a sign that I was destined to get something from there today. So I did. Over-caffeinated? Yes, I haz it.

On an awesome note I was picking up a comforter for our guest bed and found one on clearance for $20!! I promptly put back the $40 one and did the happy dance in my head.

YES! I outwitted my IT Dept sorta. All the problems I listed were real issues and when the 'new' girl saw that I had a T60 (insert gasp in here because she seemed amazed that I was still using a laptop I got over 6 years ago) she immediately said I will build you a new one. Yep and lo and behold the new laptop has no issues with our new wireless router. Yay!!!

But the headset I ordered because I have bare wires on the one I have has the wrong connector. Boo. I need to go into a store I guess because the company my company uses does not show or give the connector info. WHY?

I am very glad that I am not the kind of person who fears climbing up a ladder and getting the moss off her roof by herself.

In fact, I'm rather proud of it. And I did it all while Duncan Hines loudly meowed at me.

Irene Adler! <3 She was why I was annoyed with the recent Sherlock Holmes sequel (Game of Shadows, I think) I watched with my parents last night. Spoilers: I also gave the side-eye to the first one having her and Holmes be all sexual with each other, but that was easier to let slide, because they didn't let her be poisoned during the movie's opening without putting up any sort of intellectual fight. She doesn't demonstrate any cleverness at all - just flirts with Holmes and goes off and gets killed, even collapsing off-camera, prompting me to say to my parents, "It...sounded like she fell...but she's Irene Adler, so they can't have just killed her off like that..." And then Holmes gets her handkerchief later and Moriarty says she's dead and we see it in flashback, and I hold out hope that he was lying and she was poisoned but not dead of super!tuberculosis, but no. We never get that reveal. Holmes sadly tosses the handkerchief off of a ship and we are left by movie's end with the knowledge that Irene Adler, the intellectual equal of the great Sherlock Holmes, flirted a bit and then got stuffed in a fridge, where she then gathered mold because her death did nothing to move the plot. My mom scoffed and said we don't really know she's dead, but this isn't a serial medium. It's a sequel, not the middle of a trilogy. And they fridged Irene Adler.

So I've been hoping that if we get to see Irene Adler in Sherlock, she will be suitably awesome. This...does not appear to be the case. Well, at least I'll know to expect to be insulted. And I enjoyed being reminded of why I loved that story so much! Seriously, though, Moffat has like Hemingway-level problems with women*. They should go be bros in some conceptual cave forever and leave the rest of the thinking world alone.

* - Desires of heavily pregnant wives according to the latter asshat: to have sex with and get thin for their hubby. God, I hated A Farewell to Arms.

It is a very old word and can also mean a very annoying person that you dislike very much. It's not a vulgar term when used in such manner. Or it is derived from the name of a goddess from another culture. Same way the name for kitty cats has been taken and made into a trashy word.

Twix how I love thee. Let me count my thighs!

Halloween is so close. I can't wait to get all the candy. I don't know what I'm going to do with it but I can't wait. We go trick'o'treating at work from cubicle to cubicle...lol it's fun. I'd really rather have office supplies though.

For all my whining about this girl she just gave me some of the best advice I've had in a while. She reminded me that it never would have worked unless someone moved, and that all I have now are great memories. You know what? I really have GREAT memories! I have often wondered about looking bad at everything through rose coloured glasses, but it really was a fun experience and I don't regret having fell asleep in The Castro square.

My skin sucks so bad right now. As soon as one pimple starts to go away, two more take its place. Not even kidding.

I was walking around where a lot of NYU's buildings/dorms are today.

There was a gaggle of young men, with backpacks, so most likely students. One shoved his friend towards me and said, "My friend thinks you're really cute!"

I said, "He's cute too, but I'm probably ten years older than him!"

Boy: You are NOT! He's nineteen!
Me: I'm thirty!
Boy: ...You're THIRTY? You look REALLY good for THIRTY.

Am I seriously old enough to look "good" for my age???? "Young" I'll take...but "good"??? Sheesh!!!

I still got it!
