The Eternal Conundrum...

Its 3:15pm and I'm sitting in my office. I've tied up all of the loose ends that I needed to before I leave for two weeks , but I still have a meeting at 4:30pm that I have to stick around for. What do I do for the next hour and fifteen minutes? :(

Update: I decided to take this time to switch my blog to New Blogger. And with a new blog should come a new background, so I changed that too. This took all of 15 minutes. Only one hour to go. sigh....

The top 10 things that elves do at night

While I was sitting in a parking lot, waiting for my Knight in a Giant Truck to come change my tire, I saw a piece of paper blowing across the pavement. I thought it was probably something that had fallen out of my car while I was looking for my spare tire, so I picked it up. It wasn't anything of mine, but it definitely made my day a little bit was the paper of an elementary school student titled "The top 10 things that elves do at night." So with no further ado, here it is!

The top 10 things that elves do at night

1. Make toys for the childeren

2. Drink hot chocolate with candy canes in it

3. Tell a story with Santa Claus to the elves

4. Go sledding and make a igloo

5. Go to the ice casel

6. Go check if the raindeer are low on magic

7. Suck on their candy canes

8. Watch Santa fly away in the sky

9. Make candy cane cookees with Mrs. Claus

10. Fall to sleep. Just kiding but just remember, elves never sleep.

I love the smell of rubber in the morning....

This morning I had to be at work at 7:30, so I get up extra early so I won't have to battle traffic on my way. As I get off the freeway and go through my first light, my car starts shaking a little bit. As I go through my next light, it all of a sudden feels like I hit a giant log or something and then just goes nuts. I smell burning rubber and see white smoke everywhere, so I pull over and find this:
Needless to say, I was not at work at 7:30. Apparently no one in North Richland Hills knows how to change a tire (including me!) so I had to wait and hour for a guy my dad knew to come and help me and got to work at 9am. Oh yeah, and I wore white pants to work today. Perfect for digging around greasy tire-changing stuff. What a great start to a day...

Question of the Day

Should I be offended or flattered when I get friend requests from guys on myspace who only have hot female "friends"?

On one hand, they are disgusting. I mean seriously, what girl with an ounce of self-respect would ever want to be associated with a jerk whose only "friends" are girls with their boobs hanging out in every picture? (Don't worry - I always reject the request...and I don't have my boobs hanging out in any pictures!)

But on the other hand...are they saying they think I'm hot? :) Everyone needs a little self-esteem boost every now and then...

Name That Tune!

No cheating!!!

"Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone cold tomb."

I'll even give you a hint....Merry Christmas and stone cold tombs and stuff!

Things That Make Me Smile - Holiday Edition

Just so that everyone doesn't think that I am immune to the Christmas spirit after my last post...I thought I'd list a few things about the Holidays that make me smile. :)

1. Sappy Hallmark Christmas movies

2. When its cold outside (possibly even snowing...contrary to #5 from yesterday) but I'm inside and warm with a fire in the fireplace and #1 on television.

3. Christmas trees!! And Christmas lights!! And anything shiny that involves Christmas!!

4 & 5. The following video includes two of my very favorites: SNL Christmas songs and The Muppet Christmas Carol! Best. Sketch. Ever.

Happy Holidays!! Only 16 shopping days left to have your online orders in time for Christmas!! :)

Pet Peeves - Holiday Edition

1. People who get in their cars in a crowded parking lot and then take their dear sweet time before backing up, even though they can CLEARLY see that people are waiting for their spot

2. When there is a tiny patch of ice on the shoulders of the road, not even in the lanes, and people slam on their brakes before going over the bridge, blocking traffic and making my commute 1 1/2 hours

3. Having a stupid winter cold for 3 weeks that I just can't shake

4. Paper cuts from "Holiday Cards" (not Christmas Cards!)

5. The fact that whenever it snows in Texas, everyone has to pretend they're excited about it and go out and play in it. Its just cold and wet people! (I think I probably mentioned that in a post sometime last year too....but I really hate it!)
