Today is the first day I have visited the home page in, well, a really long time. It looks like one big page of advertisements. It is so busy, I am not sure I would stay if I was new.

There are few great scrolling photo spreads at the top. One of them is about braids. The article is called Braided Curls. Most of the braids are shown with wavy hair. But the braided pony tail is shown with straight hair. Really? What a joke.

looks like it's heading straight for NYC at the moment - but you know how hurricanes don't always track the way they're supposed to...

I haven't been on NC via a real computer in a while. I keep meaning to, just to see the mess, but its probably easier to stay on the app and avoid the aggravation.

How DO you pronounce it? Is it Nyoh-kee?

(I know I could google it, but I prefer the personal touch....)

So the **** hit the fan at work. The work that the paralegal did was all wrong. For a hearing next week. Not good. She put a case number for a closed case. And since she is gone, I had to fix it all. There was a flurry of emails about it and a lot of people were added to the email. She sent me a response to just me to complain that I wrote "all of them" regarding there being an error on all of them. Well facts are facts. suck it up. And then to tell me that she should have been told of the new case number.

I reminded her, while cc-ing our attorney, that she wouldn't let me help. That she held onto the whole thing herself and that I never got an opportunity to review and check it. Maybe there should be a method where we both look at stuff.

I'm so po-ed right now! She seriously just went there with me.

Nuh-uh. I'm not a little ***** that you can just blame. You did badly. Accept it and move on. It happens to all of us. Even the best of us.

I didn't throw you under the bus until it became clear that I needed to be direct about what the problem was. Case numbers. All of them. Put in by you. Clerk was annoyed that you f-ed it up. And I had to hear about it like it was my f-up. I'm not going down for mistakes I dont' make. especially after you have no problem inserting me under the bus at your convenience.

*sigh* I need a vacation.

I'm a horrible person... I just ignored a phone call from someone, but I really should've answered it. I just... Can't deal with them right now.

I did it! I worked on the yard with the leafblower for an hour. Now my arm is tingling and I smell like gasoline, but hey, if it rains until Monday, at least I got something accomplished.

The funniest pronunciation I've heard was gee-no-ki (long i).

I heard from my mom in Jamaica yesterday. So far nothing today. Heard that power lines were down in her area so I imagine no battery power on her mobile phone. Thanks for caring 😊

My husband has a Corvette for the evening. Just got back from driving it- very cool!!

Someone in his department won it through work for a week and is letting people in his group drive it.

Ok sis, he's repeating previous stupid cheating habits (or about to and is telling you so). You need to get off your azz and leave him. I don't give a bleep if he's overseas right now, that's not an excuse to do it again. Troy & I are waiting for you out west...

Mine are OK. Thanks for asking. The region is in my prayers.
I was thinking of kayb too and hoping she is OK!
