I woke up with the beginnings of a sinus infection. So I've been overdosing myself with advil and pseudoephedrine. Worked all day on Friday feeling like... well, you know. My only consolation was my plan to drag my sick ass to "Jesse's" for my usual Friday evening of Karaoke. Which I did.
Now, let me back up a little. I have an editor... yes, that's right, I write a little safety column in a local Motorcycle Magazine. Anyway, I have asked my editor (we've only communicated via phone, email and chat) a couple of times to come to the bar and join the fun. I asked him online Thursday nite.
I must confess... Friday evening I was not at my best. With Sinus problems, drugs (legal ones... so far anyway) and the shot of tequila that someone just twisted my arm to drink... I wasn't thinking clearly. There were several people at the bar and my gang had a large table. All I really noticed was the loud, obnoxious drunk at the end of the bar... so I paid the bar area little mind. I sang a couple of songs (rough though the were... my throat and all...) and Melissa the Bartender comes over to me and says "there's a gentleman at the bar who would like to buy you a drink and asks if you'd join him there".
OKAY, okay! It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure this one out does it?? But did I realize it was my EDITOR??? NO! I told her to politely tell the gentleman that I was on "drugs" and didn't need another beverage and "Thanks anyway". And I went about my business... I never really saw WHO the gentleman was until he left... and I thought to myself... OH GEE, I sure hope that wasn't Mr. Editor! Alas...
Let's hope he gives me another chance... I know I can be a lot more charming than THAT!
Faux Pas indeed!

PEG, your most unique quality is that you're unusually Inspirational
You inspire others around you with your creative energy and thirst for new experiences. You are exceptionally curious and aren't afraid of learning new things — which is probably because you tend to focus on the potential positive outcome of any experience rather than dwelling on the potential negatives. You are a true explorer in the word. You want to understand and experience it all, and you're especially open to new feelings and ideas. Compared to others who are open, you are unusually accepting of your own and others feelings. Only 6.0% of
all test takers have this unique combination of personality strengths.

Have you tried SUDOKU yet?
Wikipedia defines it as:
(Japanese: sūdoku), sometimes spelled Su Doku, is a logic-based placement puzzle, also known as Number Place in the United States. The aim of the canonical puzzle is to enter a numeral from 1 through 9 in each cell of a 9×9 grid made up of 3×3 subgrids (called "regions"), starting with various numerals given in some cells (the "givens"). Each row, column and region must contain only one instance of each numeral. Completing the puzzle requires patience and logical ability. Its grid layout is reminiscent of other newspaper puzzles like crosswords and chess problems. Although first published in 1979, Sudoku initially became popular in Japan in 1986 and attained international popularity in 2005.
Do a Google search on the word Sudoku and you will find LOTS of puzzles.

I still don't have internet access at "home" yet. Actually, I just dropped my pc off at the computer place... video issues. I've been logging on at work, at Fwed's, at W's... anyplace I can get my hands on a computer. At the moment, I'm writing this from Circuit City on one of their wireless laptops... I gotta get me one of these. Especially considering how much time I spend at Starbucks, Panera, public libraries, etc... If I did that, I wouldn't have to sign up for that EXPENSIVE satellite hookup out in Outer Bum Fuck Egypt! I'd just spend all my time in hot spots.
I DO feel I'm coming out of the fog and I plan to be here more often now.
T, "Hands", "The Chef" and W are heading to Key West in the next couple of days... WITHOUT ME! I can't believe I'm not going this year, but I'm house/dog sitting for W and "The Chef" so that will be nice... hmmmm hot tub, sauna, and internet access for 10 days. WooHoo! And solitude! Unless I can convince someone to visit... hehe. hmmm wonder who??
Oh, by the way... I'm sorry I had to put the text thingy on the comments, but the spam posts were driving me nuts. I hope this doesn't annoy any of you and I certainly hope you will still leave me comments!
Thanks for hanging around guys! I love you!
Now I think I'll go spend some $$ on myself... happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me...
did I mention it's my BIRTHDAY?!

Werzie and I met when we were about... oh... 12 or 13 years old. We went to school together, spent tons of time together, GREW UP together. I was in her wedding (the first one anyway). I'd have been there when her children were born (I'm Auntie Peg!)... but they were born in Australia, for heaven's sake! Yup, she lives in OZ now, cool huh? Anyway, she has "spells" of being online. On for weeks then she disappears... she blamed it on her kids (haha). Some of you know where she's coming from... kids always wanting to be on the computer and you never get YOUR time. But now she has her own PC and no more excuses... Right Werzie???
Werzie got back online and read my many "Where are you?" emails and then she came here to check out the blog. She found out all about my latest trials and tribulations. And then she tracked me down. I'm so glad!
Love you girl!
