I am so excited...

OK, I just upgraded to Blog*Spot Plus, which I know is pretty stupid since it is not very reliable but I figured "hey" if I already paid for Blogger Pro I might as well..it's not that I'm poor or anything. Well, I could put a PayPal button up like so many other people asking for money but since I think I am pretty much the only person here...well not really...I would get even more depressed. So, what the hell, I feel like spending money. Who cares if the kids don't eat for a while...just kidding.
Anyway, so I upgraded and now I can post pictures, which is SWEET. So that's what I did and see....(previous post). Just beautiful. Well, that will make my weekend much better.

That looks so cool.....

Bald ist Wochenende!!!!!!!

Endlich Freitag.
Diese Woche war eigentlich ganz ok,bis auf das ich jeden Morgen kaum aus dem Bett kam. Ich kann einfach nicht frueh ins Bett gehen.
Jetzt steht aber das Wochenende vor der Tuer, was heisst, dass ich ausschlafen kann!!!!!!!!!!
Hoffentlich wird das Wetter gut sein, damit man sich mal draussen aufhalten kann ohen gleich eine Erkaeltung zu bekommen.
Naja, sonst is alles wie gehabt....total langweilig bei mir.
Also, lass mich noch die letzten 4 Stunden ueberstehen und dan ab nach Hause...
uebrigens empfehle ich jedem der in der Washington, DC Gegend wohnt einmal Generous George's aufzusuchen...the positive Pizza and Pasta Place!!!!!
Ok, dann werd ich mal.

Let them have fun.....

I don't know what to think about that but I am certainly not trying to picture this........disgusting
Now I'll never go to Hardee's again...well, I never did before.

What's wrong with the children today????

Ok I just came across this which reminded me of something I heard about yesterday....
When reading this, especially the last story, one really has to wonder what the hell is going on with kids these days.

Der erste Beitrag auf deutsch

Also, in letzter Zeit bin ich mehr und mehr auf deutschsprachige Blogs gestossen, bzw. auf welche die sich in Deutschland befinden.
Und da ich mir manchmal einen Komentar leiste (und dabei immer fleissig meinen URL hinterlasse!!), habe ich mir gedacht, dass ich ja auch mal auf deutsch schreiben koennte....
Naja, das habe ich jetzt gemacht und...habe nichts zu erzaehlen.
Aber das ist ja nicht selten so.
Ich habe nichts, worueber ich mich beschweren koennte...noch nichts:-) aber der tag ist ja noch lang.
Also, fuer alle deutschsprachigen Besucher...HERZLICH WILKOMMEN!

OK..now who took my links????

I swear, I'm going nuts.
First my SiteMeter is gone and now my links???

UPDATE: never mind..it's back...weird

I am sooooooooooooooo tired

All this week I have been trying to go to bed early and it just never really worked out.
So last night I had to go to an reception and thought it would be best for me to just take half a day off and try and get some sleep before. Well, I tried. I could have slept for maybe three hours but it was more around one hour I actually got with frequent interruptions.
I didn't get home until about 11:30 at night and had to get up at 5:30 this morning...
And to top it all off I have to get up early this weekend..well at least tomorrow since furniture is going to be delivered between 8 and 10.
One of these days am going to fall asleep driving my car or something.

People in the states just to get enough time off. I am so burned out.

Well, I just thought I write that down real quick since I haven't posted anything lately.
It's doesn't seem very interesting,now that I read it, but the hell with it. At least I posted something.

Sadam as a gay pornstar???????

Ok, I saw this story this morning somewhere, and wanted to link it and just came across it again (thanks to the Inscrutable American)...
I don't know if this is true or not but it's funny anyway.
Maybe they'll put it up on the web!!!!!

French President hails end of Saddam regime

Well, we all waited for this one to come.
Interesting is also what is said about the "business" relationship between Chirac and Hussein....

But there are rumblings in France about the French President's stand following the broadcast of archive pictures of the then French Prime Minister Chirac with the then Vice-President Saddam Hussein in a French nuclear power station.

The image is an reminder of his success in sealing a deal to sell Saddam two nuclear reactors.

The French public is also being reminded that, for all his criticism of military action to rid Saddam Hussein of weapons of mass destruction, it was Prime Minister Chirac who agreed to ship weapons-grade uranium to Iraq - a decision vetoed by the then French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing.

I just checked and it's still in my template I removed it and then put it back...nothing.
I removed it again and then had Sitemeter.com add..it's there (in the template) but not on the site?????
What the hell is going on?
Did anyone else ever have the same problem?
I know, I know, it's blogger.com that is the problem, right?

Today will be better!!!!

Ahhh.
I actually think that today will be a much better day.
I got my coffee without any incidents and was also able to take a nice and warm shower.m What a perfect morning...(besides the fact that I had to get up early and go to work).
Anyway, certainly the 4 tons of ammunition dropped on Sadam certainly made my day.

I finally get to go home!!!!!

Well, I made it...
I actually survived this day..well, it's not quite over. I still have to get home. I can't wait to go to sleep. I think it's the time change. Whatever it is. I hope tomorrow will be better.

Just another way of protesting the war...

Use more French words rather than English ones???
Now, this is funny. I wonder how they are going to do that since so many English words are already part of the German language????

100 visitors!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I just checked and I finally reached 100 visitors after only a week... well, I probably was the one visiting this site mostly, but still, it feels good to be on the triple-digits.
By the way.... I still hate today and wish I would have stayed in bed..but that really cheered me up somewhat.

I still hate it....

OK, now about two hours have past and I still hate today.
I can't get the stain out of my sweater.
About an hour ago a colleague cam in behind me an smiled "Happy Monday!!!" (we do that all the time to tease each other). I swear to God, I almost cried.
I wish I could go home...I guess I could, but I don't want to waste half a day of my time-off.... And then I only have to go back out in the cold rain.
I need a quite and relaxing weekend....to myself.
I need an outlet for all my frustration or I'm really going to hurt someone..at least emotionally.
Well, I need some coffee :)

I hate Monday

How great. The week started and everything that can go wrong DID go wrong.
I couldn't take a shower this morning because the water was too cold because someone else already took looooong showers.
It got cold again and it's raining which doesn't make the morning commute very easy. And now, only three hours after I even got up I spilled coffee all over my white sweater because somebody was too stupid to put the coffee pot on its holder.
I just want to go home and go to sleep.
I hate Monday.

Report: Captured Woman Put Up Fierce Fight

I look up to that woman. She looks so "cute" on the pictures they showed of her but she really fought hard.

I also heard this morning that she was giving a 4-year scholarship by an University. I forgot though,, which one it was.

Rescued Soldier's Family Ecstatic, Thanks Troops

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The father of rescued U.S. Army soldier Jessica Lynch lavished praise and thanks on Wednesday on the U.S. special troops who stormed into an Iraqi hospital and took his injured daughter to safety.
"We are just real proud that they risked their lives to go in and save our daughter and we hope all the rest of the troops come home safely too," said Greg Lynch in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" from his home in Palestine, West Virginia.

I know the news broke late yesterday but I just wanted say how glad I am that she was found. The troops are really doing a great job and one can see how well they are trained.

Get a car for balls.....

OK, I wouldn't mind if anyone brought Sadam's balls to Vienna and if that was the "art-project" alone I would think it was funny.

Siegl said: "This installation called Car Wars is a peaceful protest against the war."

Plus, I don't understand how this could be "peaceful". How does he think the balls would get to Vienna?
Whatever..
