Cutest Pictures Ever

Not that Quizz doesn't come a close second to these pictures, but for some reason there is nothing cuter than baby pictures! Especially when you don't have to listen to the baby crying to get them - not that Marcus ever cries, I have it on very good authority that he is actually sleeping through the night. I am sure this is a bonus for his weary parents.

Anywho, enjoy this picture, aaahhhh how cute and this picture, even cuter if possible and this lovely picture, possible the cutest of the bunch.

So aside from me needing some major help with my adjectives, I hope you enjoyed them!! Have a wonderful day!

At the Job

I know you are all dying to see my workplace aren't you? I close my eyes because I am pretending I am on a beach in Tahiti! Check it out here. At least I look pretty nice. Wouldn't you love having a window behind where you sit? I swear I am always so paranoid someone is going to see my surfing online, or checking my yahoo. Not that I do it much, but it's only the one time you get caught.

I also finally joined the 22nd Century and got a myspace account, I am not sure how much I will be on there. It probably depends on how many of my friends join or have joined already. The site is interesting anyway, let me know if you are on there and I haven't found you yet!

Things That Annoy Me, Part 1

So continuing in the curmudeonly vein, there are many things that annoy me, but I thought I would touch on just a few, just a few!!

1. People who leave messages that are long and drawn out, THEN they say 'my name is whosamacallit and my number is 5552288' very, very quickly. Now you have a choice, you can listen to the message twenty times to get their name and/or number, or you can delete the message and wait for them to call you back. Which do you think I do?? That's right, the former (unless it is very important), because I can.

2. People who spit on me, yes this happened to me. I was spit upon, and it was in my hair when I was still 45 minutes from home and I had to ride the bus home with spit in my hair (insert deragatory remark about person who spit here). Needless to say I ran inside and scrubbed my hair. It still gives me the heebie jeebies...

3. People who have the sniffles on the bus. Seriously, I sat in front of someone who was clearing their throat at LEAST every 5 seconds (I am not exaggerating) for the WHOLE bus ride home (about 40 minutes). I almost committed murder, or at least told them to shut the hell up, but I didn't. If I had a cough drop I would have thrown it at them. Oh, it was horrible...

4. People who walk slow in front of me and meander around so you can't really pass them without being overtly rude. I still pass them, I just feel kinda bad, like maybe they escaped from the mental institution and they've never seen a city. IT'S A CITY PEOPLE, if you are going to walk slow and least don't do it in front of busy business people - see me??? I'm in SUIT!! (Yeah, I have to wear suits.)

I would ask you what annoys you, but some smart ass would probably say 'people who bitch about things'. Hey, I have to be nice all day long, it's gotta come out somewhere... no comments about my driving should be inserted here...

I Hate The 4th

Notice, it isn't that I hate what the 4th of July stands for, merely that I despise the 4th of July. I do love having a day off work, though it is nicer when it extends a weekend (what about the 4th of July observed???). It's just that on that night, even after the large fireworks display which I do not watch, people think that it is their right to set off loud, obnoxious fireworks into the wee hours of the morning. I believe that on a work night the wee small hours of the morning should be reserved for my right to sleep.

Perhaps I have never understood the appeal of fireworks, having not seen them in person until I was 12. (It's called the midnight sun, love it people, love it). While they were fun when I was 12 and setting them off BEFORE sunset, ie during twilight, in a church parking lot. I don't believe I have ever disturbed someone's sleep with them, except perhaps when I was a college student, but there are not enough college students in the world to account for the annoying people who set off firecrackers until the wee small hours. I'm begging you, please, for all that is holy, stop it before I take away your holiday!

Random Review Time

Find Me Guilty: Starring Vin Disel, and the only movie I have ever seen him in outside of that one on the alien planet. This was a very good movie, you realize the character was no really likeable, but yet you kinda liked him. You wanted to see him win it and pull through the charges. It was a decent mob movie too, though perhaps not nearly gory enough to be a Soprano's episode.

The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio: Starring Julianne Moore. Amazing, I loved this movie. It is a period movie set in the 1950's when women (mostly) stayed home and had children, occasionally the women had to utilize their underused wit and entered contest. Eventually in the 1960's the contests had come to an end and all of our contests today are 'no talent needed'. This is the story of how a mother of 10 raised a family on 25 words or less. Made me cry, of course what doesn't.

X-Men: The Last Stand: Starring Hugh Jackman, at least for me it was starring him. Decent movie, I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't seen it, but people die who have never died in the comic books and it annoyed me slightly. Granted, they aren't doing a fourth film, but what the heck? Decent movie, not as great as one or two. Can anyone say Wolverine Movie?

As Time Goes By: Perhaps twenty somethings shouldn't be watching a British TV show about an aging couple who have reuninted after 40 years and get married and make dry, sardonic jokes; but I just can't help myself. My mom and stepfather got me hooked on the show and, since they have a few of the DVDs, I borrow them and watch them enmasse. It's on PBS on Saturday nights (probably around 7pm CST) and if you can't buy or rent the DVDs, that is the way to check it out. Starring Dame Judi Dench and very well acted, I'm half in love with her husband - probably more in a paternal way, though I haven't analyzed the feelings and don't really want to delve that deeply into my psyche.

Well I will sit around and think of more things to write about, all for your amusement.
