I am out of here.
My weekend finally begins! Just a couple of errands and then I can relax.

Oh My!

A Catholic priest and nun have been caught having sex in a car at an airport car park in Malawi.

My foot itches, and my knee, my arm, EVERYTHING.
Mosquitoes love me. It's a surprise I have not been infected with the west Nile Virus yet.

Happy Friday!!!!

It's the weekend...well, almost!
Short day for me, so in about 4 hours I'll be on my way home. I can't wait to finally get some sleep. All this week there was not one night where I was able to go to sleep before 11:30.
I can't wait.

Thursday, July 29, 2004


Look at the time!!!
Today went by fast, which is good because the rest of the week was horrible so far. Tomorrow I only have to work half a day which is perfect. So, really the weekend kind of starts today....but only kind of.

happy happy happy

Just got a pay, huh?

Another Day

And a much better one at this. Well, let's hope so. But just knowing that tomorrow is Friday makes it a lot better. I still didn't get to bed as early as I had hoped for but I feel rested.
BUT I am still freezing my ass off in here.

What a day

I am so ready to go. I am cold in here and about to fall asleep. This was not a good day.


I am kind of tired today and have no energy whatsoever. I really need to get to bed earlier. Three nights in a row it's been almost midnight and I have to get up at 5:30 every morning. But it's my fault so I am not really complaining. I am using it as an excuse for not posting.

Tuesday, July 27, 2004 - News - D.C. Eateries Reduce Prices For Restaurant Week

Oh, I forgot about that one.
Restaurant week is this week!
Lots of yummy restaurants out there!!!!!!!

OK, Ciao.

I won't forget

Not again. Yesterday ended so stressy that I didn't even post anything before I left. Today is not any better but at least I remebered that.


I am freezing my ass off today. It is so cold in here. The stupid thing is, that now it doesn't even work to go outside for a few minutes since it is not really that warm outside either.......

Makes sense to me

Women wishing to enter Canada to work as strippers must provide naked photos of themselves to qualify for a visa.

Why not? Plus, I am sure it sort of make their day a little bit more interesting.

Yahoo! News - Klinsmann to Coach Germany Soccer Team

Finally! I can't wait. I hope it works out Klinsi is able to help the team.


And again the week starts and it's Monday. Surprisingly I am not really tired today and I am glad. I just have to make it through the week and then it's the weekend again......
I had a nice one though. Our friends made it "home" safely. Our extended family is now complete!!!!!

Friday, July 23, 2004


Finally. I am so done and ready to go.
Have a great weekend.

Today's commute

Brought to you by the words:

"Smelly" and "Stopping".
First, smelly people. Not smelly as in "I have no air conditioning and weight 300 pounds"-smelly, but "I have no sense of smell and don't know that a whole bottle of aftershave/perfume is a little too much"-smelly.
Second, "stopping" as in, I like to race up the escalator and then suddenly stop half way up so everybody behind me gets bump into each other.
Gotta love it.
Happy Friday!

Thursday, July 22, 2004

Oh Well

I didn't really have the time to post today, but hopefully tomorrow will be better.
Have a good one.


Sorry that I haven't posted anything yet today, but there is nothing really going on here other than the fact that tomorrow is Friday!!! I am so glad.
This weekend should be very exciting since our long-lost friends are moving back to the area and are going to stay with us for a while. Good that we bought the house. We have been moving stuff (lots of stuff) out of the guest room/office, now know as the guest room only. The only thing left tonight is to get our computer out of there and move a dresser into the closet to put another mattress in there. Busy, busy.

Wednesday, July 21, 2004


And away!
I am done for today!


I've been so busy today bitching and complaining and trying to get things done that I forgot to post.
But nothing is going on anyways. I finally finished my burger from last night though!

Tuesday, July 20, 2004


I am already hungry and I am craving a nice juicy burger. Unfortunately my husband does not (really). I was wanting to go to Five Guys, but they are to juicy for his taste today. But that's fine because he agreed to UNO's and I like their burger too. He likes their Guiness.
I am ready to eat!


I wish I had an American citizenship. I could make twice as much. But I don't, so I am here. But I'll get there....hopefully. I just want to work somewhere where I can use my language skills a little more.

Monday morning on a Tuesday

Well mainly this is another metro post. People are so stupid and inconsiderate. My shoulder hurts from running into so many dumbasses. I think I'll have a bruise by tonight. What's up with thsoe idiots standing in front of open metro doors but not getting in, making it hard for everybody else to pass them and get on the train? Especially when you're running towards it because the doors are about to close....that's when I got my main shoulder injury this morning. Or those people that realize right when the doors close that they have to get off and run out standing in front of the doors and look around because this seems to be the best spot to figure out where to go?
Then on to the farecard vending amchines or whatever they are called. I had to fill up my smartrip card this morning because yesterday about 1000 tourists crowded around every single machine trying to figure out hwo to follow the directions on the machines. Since I really wanted to arrive at home before midnight I though I just take care of it this morning. No problem, right? There are two machines for the smartrip cards I get in line and this metro-dude is helping two girls in front of me and they walk off. My turn right? NO. This bitch walks up front of me and says something to the metro-dude and then when she is done complaining she proceeeds to the vending maching right when the two girls are done-IN FRONT OF ME!!! I hate people. I really do.

Monday, July 19, 2004


Why is it that always the whole day is slow and I am fallling asleep and then, as soon as I got one hour to go the stress starts?
Well, at least the day is over.

Queen Mary 2

The Queen Mary 2 arrived in the Hamburg port ths morning. Heiko Hebig has some pictures. That this a huge ship.
My dad was going to get up at 3AM and get out there but after not being able to sleep half of the night, he though it might be best to try and get as much sleep as possible.


What a nice weekend it was though. Met with a friends and had a lot of fun while still getting stuff done. This week we have to get the guest room ready which means getting all the office stuff out of there, but that shouldn't be too bad. Other than that not much is going on so far. We'll see what the day brings......

It is Time

Time to go. I am so gald. I will be going straight to the bar! That's the way to start the weekend!!!
Have a good one.

This is scary SHIT!

I just read this article, which was linked by Stephen Green, the Vodkapundit, who got it from Jessica from Jessica's Well, who in turn got it or the confirmation of it's truth from Michelle Malkin.
Read it! I know it's long but it's worth it.
UPDATE: Many people posted about this but I forgot to mention the Spoons Experience.

I hate him

That damn Lance Armstrong got another 2 and half minutes on Jan Ulrich today which makes it almost impossible for Ulrich to catch up and win. Fuick.

Navy Wife

-It's the toughest job in the Navy.

That's what my new coffee cup says. My husband got it for me yesterday.
Now I have about three coffee cups at work.


Does anybody know if and when the UK is planning on joining the Euro, I mean using that currency? I knwo they voted against it but is there a plan on having another vote and if that was yes, what would the time line be?
It's about investments and all I need to know is if it could happen in the next three yeats or not. I suspect not, but I would like to hear it from somebody else.

Happy Friday!!!!!

Finally ther last day of the week. How exciting. Not much going today or this weekend. A couple of friends are coming over and we're going out tonight with another couple ad the kids. I really need to get my hair cut this weekend. I am way overdue with that.

Thursday, July 15, 2004

Thank you

You who makes the clock run faster!!!!!
Time to get ready and go. One more day and then it's the weekend!!!!!

I didn't know

I feel really stupid, but I didn't knwo that Juergen Klinsmann was a technical advisor to the LA Galaxy (I want to say Frankfurt Galaxy). I might actually start watching MLS since I have a team I can connect with now. I don't know.


Blondes really are more stupid after hearing 'dumb blonde' jokes, according to research by psychologists in Germany.

Ok, so if somebody keeps making jokes about you, you start being stupid.
I don't know if I believe that. I am blonde and I like blonde jokes but I don't think it influenced my intelligence....well, maybe it did....duh...

It's payday and that means it's pay-the-bills day too!!!
Ever since we moved and we now have a mortgage I pay all the bills on the 15th of the month and the mortgage on the 1st. So, on the 15th I have about 11 bills to pay which takes a long time. I don't know why but I like writing checks and so I don't usually pay online or set up any automatic withdrawals, but maybe I should since it is getting a little too much.
Maybe I'll do that today?

Other than that everything is going great. It is such a beautiful day outside today, but I hope it will still be nice out when it's time for me to go home, but that's a long time away. - News - Metro Station Reopens After Ceiling Collapse

That'll make for a nice commute.
The Farragut North Metro Station will reopen this morning, but one of its entrances will remain closed.
That's because a portion of the ceiling came crashing down about 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, sending tiles and wires cascading to the floor.

Wednesday, July 14, 2004


Alright kiddos. I am out of here. Let's home I don't get hit by a tornado. I heard that the power is out at Springfield Metro but the VRE is still running.

The lucky ball

This is an auction on the Spanish eBay site. They are selling the ball that Beckham was unable to score with during the penalty kick at this year's European Championship. I wonder who will be the one to pay that kind of money for a ball and what they are going to do with it. I guess it depends if they like Beckham or not.
The Official Match Ball used on the game against Portugal, that left UK out of the Europe Cup, the same ball of the penalty, that David Beckham miss, will be auctioned on eBay. Pablo Carral, a fan, catched the ball and he took it out from the stadium.
Is the Official Europe Cup Match Ball, made in Thailand. It has the date of the game, the 24th of June 2004, also the place of the celebration, da Luz of Lisbon stadium.

UPDATE: The current highest bidder is German. BTW, Euro 10,000,000 is more than $10 million.


I smell garlic...and it smells good. Well, almost time to have lunch....Pizza again, but I could eat that every day.

Zeus was a whore

I have been reading a book I read in 8th grade or so about Greek mythology and all the gods etc. So, I when online to see what resources are available and found this website, the Encyclopedia Mythica. While I was reading the book I started to think that Zeus got around a lot, so I looked that up and found a little table with some of his offspring. Pretty busy.

Half Way

It's Wednesday!!! That means we are half way through the work week. Just two more times getting up early. I so can't wait for the weekend.
Not much going on besides some people coming over Saturday evening. I should finally be able to get my hair cut.

My mom is back in the hospital but this time it was planned. She is finally getting her tonsils taken out. Well, that was yesterday but she'll stay there for a little bit longer.
In other news....I'll be a real aunt!!!!!!! My lovely brother and his wonderful girlfriend (whom I haven't met yet) are expecting to be parents around March of next year. They're a little scared since they lost a little one at the end of last year. But everything should be fine. I can't wait! This will be the first grandchild for my parents...other than the step-ones I surprised them with.

Slow Day

And a weird one. I had this little headache lingering around for most of the day. I am tired all of a sudden and stuffed. But luckily I get to go home soon and maybe get some sleep.....or not.

There we go

Well, it seems the woman lied after all. Sad.
Just days after claiming to be the victim of an attack that stunned France, a young mother confessed to making up the story, authorities said Tuesday.


I read the story about the 23-year woman being attacked on a French train yesterday. It is almost common to hear about some sort of racially motivated attack in France.
Now, they said that she might made the whole thing up.
Police patrolled suburban trains on Monday and studied video from surveillance cameras, trying to track down six men who allegedly attacked a young mother and scrawled swastikas on her stomach.
But doubts began to surface about the truth of the attack report that stunned France.

Finally time to get out of here!!!


People will do anything for money except work...Really.

A woman charged with killing her brother-in-law by spiking his smoothie with antifreeze admits putting the chemicals in the drink, according to the woman's lawyer.

I am starting to get kind of tired. My head is starting to hurt too. I better quit since I have to birthday party to go to...that means going home, but still.....
Almost done!!!!!

Yet another example... show you that drugs are bad for you.

Day After Tomorrow

Extreme temperatures, which have killed at least 22 people in Romania in the space of a week, continued to plague Europe, with Greece sweltering in a heatwave and an open-air performance of Verdi's "Traviata" canceled in Italy.

I didn't believe it when my mom told me that they reported snow in the Bavarian Apls.
They have had a horrible summer so far in Hamburg, Germany. It's just raining...and raining....and raining some more. But that's how I remember it being when I was living there. Of course, last year we had the shit summer here and they had the hot one.

Happy Birthday!!!!!

Just a little Happy Birthday wish for my lovely husband!!!!
Have a great day and I can't wait to see you tonight!!!!
I love you and I couldn't be happier with you.

Back to Work!!!

Well, it's Monday...AGAIN.
Oh well, I had a great weekend. Went to a retirement party on Friday and had to deal with the results of it most of the day Saturday but was ready for another get-together Saturday evening. You can tell it's summer with all those parties going on but it's fun to see all those people and meet new ones.

Friday, July 09, 2004


I made it!!!
Got everything (important) done and I am still alive to enjoy this evening and tomorrow and the day after tomorrow without work.


I have absolutely nothing to post about.
Just writing that everything is great seems to be boring and nothing really pissed me off. Isn't that sad that something bad has to happen for me to have something to tell?

Hot Wheels!!!

At least 27 Honda CR-V sport/utility vehicles from the 2003 and 2004 model years burst into flames shortly after getting their first oil changes, according to newspaper reports Friday.

Kind of funny but I'm sure that the owners didn't think so.
That's what you get for buying a shit car.

One More

One more day and this week will be over! I can't wait. But first I'll have to end this day and it will end early...believe me.


Very nice to listen to a truck and car having a honking contest outside the building......

Not Fair

Instead of enjoying summer vacation, some Fairfax County students spent Thursday back in school, through no fault of their own.
They're among the nearly 300 unlucky students whose Standards of Learning tests were damaged while being transported by UPS.

That sucks. Do they get reimbursed if they had to cancel tickets? Probably not. My stepson almost went to Edison, but we sent him to the VA School for the Deaf and Blind then.


Poor Lancy Armstrong lost his yellow jersey......

Touchy Feely

Just read it on the Drudge Report.
Seems that the two Johns are touching each other way too much.....

Tired, Cranky, Headache

This pretty much describes my morning so far.
Woke up with a headache and way too tired. Had to wait at the train and at the metro and everything was way too packed with stupid tourists and other idiots alike.
I am already looking forward to going home and back in bed.

Wednesday, July 07, 2004


It seems that the last few miutes at work are always stressy....I almost forgot to post. But not today!!!


I am hungry....which is weird because I ate so much for breakfast....somebody brought in some lemon and banana-nut bread. But now I'll have to go find more food. You would think I weight 300 pounds as much as I eat but I guess my metabolism is awesome because everybody think I'm anorexic.

The New York Times > International > Europe > Thomas Klestil, 71, Austrian Who Redeemed the Presidency, Dies

President Thomas Klestil, who brought calm to an office frayed by controversy surrounding his predecessor's past in World War II, died Tuesday. He was 71.

Good Morning

What a beautiful day it is. I hate it when it is fairly nice outside in the morning because it'll be just hot and humid once I get to enjoy the rest of the day outside this afternoon. Oh well, I am rested and ready to go!

Tuesday, July 06, 2004


Almost time to go. I am tired and I want to go home. I hate it when I can't go to sleep on time. Every morning I am soooo tired and then, once I get home I am all awake.
Hopefully tomorrow will be better and I actually have some energy to write something a little more interesting.

No More Homer

I can't read that. I don't even get the names so I grabbed an older book with several Greek stories in it. I read it in 6th grade or so. It's very easy to read and then at least I am up-to-date with all the gods. Maybe when I have a lot of free time I'll sit down and read it but I am way too tired to even get a paragraph.
I need more books.

First things first

Before I get carried away with work I figured I better post. Yesterday turned somewhat busy but it consisted more of watching the clock to get out of here. Today we'll get our foosball table!!!!!

Monday, July 05, 2004


I started reading Homer over my vacation. I am still at the inroduction. Oh well. I probably won't be able to finish this one until Christmas....

I'm back!!!

How stupid to start working after a week seems everybody stayed home....the building I work in was coffee either. No people on the roads or the train...metro that is since the VRE is not in service today.......I want to go back to bed.....
