Bite-Sized Hump Day Goodness

I refuse to let the fourth straight day of rain get me down. Even though I found myself sprinting through a monsoon of Gilligan's Island proportions last night trying to get to my car. Even though, since I was apparently running all bouncy, my sunglasses took flight and were swept away never to be heard from again. The glass is half full - its raining again today so I won't really miss them.

* * * *

From the number of comments I got, I'm guessing that the long-hair post was at least slightly amusing. Just for the record, I'll admit to having a mullet at one point in time. I have enough self-confidence to cop to that. But no pictures for you! No matter how much you may beg. That bad hair chapter of my life is closed. Forevah. Thank god.

And by the way, for those that asked I was pretty much screwed either way when it came down to cropping that picture or leaving Beth in it. Had I kept her in it, I'm pretty sure I would have heard I hate that picture! Take it down! Of course, leaving her out probably meant the equivalent of you're fat or your ass looks big in those jeans, neither of which is true. I was just trying to be proactive.

There's a virus (computer, not human) going around our company. People seem shocked that the emails they've been getting from our help desk aren't real. But really, since when has our help desk signed their emails Virtually Yours or With Love. They're nice. But they're not that nice.

Happy Wednesday to all, and to all a good Hump.

Can you imagine a world where Help Desk emails WERE signed with love.

I guess they could be worse...it could be hugs and kisses..

Oh lord, that only means that the viruses are headed my way to make for one hell of a shitty Wednesday. Yay- as if I didn't already love my job enough!

PS- What luxurious, silky locks you used to have!!! :) Don't mind me giggling over there in the corner- rock on like Slayer, buddy!

Dude. You posted a picture of me in a headlamp. I think after that you can pretty much not worry about it.

What's a mullet? :))

A virus! That's what my computer has been missing for the last week. I can't wait to see what it does when it's attacked by a virus. After all, it's having enough issues just dealing with day to day life lately.

Sorry about the rain...June was like that here. It gets old really quickly.

No mullet pictures for us? Woe.

Also, there is also the option of saying, "Beth, yo, you want in or out of this picture on the internet?"

Of course, that takes all the fun out of it.

Also, what she said about the headlamp. At least with the older picture, she could plead, "that picture is so old! I don't look like that anymore!" Not be all, "uh, yeah, I was walking around my parents place in a headlamp because, um, I lost my keys?" while her momentary dorkitude is forever immortalized on the internet.

I'm getting tired of hearing from your help desk too. I've replied several times and proclaimed my love for them too, and they never write back. Bastards. Anyway, could you tell them to stop, they're plugging up my damn email. Thanks.

My boss and I were on the phone the other day and as he hung up he said, "okay. love you. bye".
After sitting in stunned silence for a moment, I laughed so hard that two people came into my office to see what the comotion was about. But, really? I don't blame him.

Happy Wednesday, pretty boy!

You had a mullet? That's it, I can no longer visit your website.

Wow ya'll got rain out there? It's so hot out here I'm waiting for the power grid to explode any moment now from all the airconditioning units going full blast. We're a costal desert and can really use some rain.

I thought everyone got love emails from their help desk. No? Lol. Don't I just feel special then. ;)

I'm a newbie to your blog - actually blogs in general. Love it!! Beth you're a crack-up to your hubby's stuff - that's supposed to come out as a compliment.

The headlamp??? I saw the picture, I just don't get it!!

Wednesday sucks, I would LOVE a love letter from your help desk.
