Computer Virus

It reprograms your ATM access code, messes up the tracking on

It will program your phone's auto dial to call only 1-900 numbers.

For some reason I feel the need to post this again...I think I did once before but...I'm not really sure....hmmmm....
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support,
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.

They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson,
love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life,
whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime

Hoarse Spud

This is the Snot Dog, live, (well not really live, but moving and talking) to say hey to all my blog buddies. I was testing his bark about two weeks after his palate and nose surgery. If I ask him who's there?, he starts barking. I'm such a taunt. But I had to see if he was getting better. He was a little hoarse (haha) dog for a while. He's fine now, barking normally, for a snot dog, and he's not snorting like a large pig anymore. I miss it tho! ;-)

Hope everyone had a wonderful got really hot here again this weekend. Went from the 50's last week to up in the 90's and humid!!! I didn't get a chance to get to the beach but stayed in the A/C most of the time!

A Little Monkey Humor

A woman got on a bus holding a baby. The bus driver said, "That's the ugliest baby I've ever seen!"

In a huff, the woman slammed her fare into the fare box and took an aisle seat near the rear of the bus. The man seated next to her sensed that she was agitated and asked her what was wrong. "The bus driver insulted me," she fumed.

The man sympathized with her and said, "Why, he's a public servant and shouldn't say things to insult passengers."

"You're right," she said. "I think I'll go back up there and give him a piece of my mind."

"That's a good idea," the man said. "Here, let me hold your monkey."

Badda bing! badda boom!

Books....Oh My!!!

Take the quiz and see what book you are!!!

Oh my, I think mine is a little do you think??????? ;-)

You're Lolita!
by Vladimir Nabokov
Considered by most to be depraved and immoral, you are obsessed with
sex. What really tantalizes you is that which deviates from societal standards in every
way, though you admit that this probably isn't the best and you're not sure what causes
this desire. Nonetheless, you've done some pretty nefarious things in your life, and
probably gotten caught for them. The names have been changed, but the problems are real.
Please stay away from children.

Take the Book Quiz

Silver Thingy Award

Sweet Sarge Charlie was oh so kind and awarded me this silver thingy saying: " she is always doing fun things, sometimes she just makes a monkey of herself, and when you enter a contest she gives you an award even when you are just a loser." Now isn't that sweet?

Thanks so much! And just so you all know, the sweet Sarge does a warm up on Thursdays for my Happy Dance Fridays, go on over and see what's in store for today. Yeah I know it all sounds sooo silly, but it's so much fun...So laugh, just for the hell of it!.

I've been "ordered" by the Sergeant (saluting now), to pass this along to two more blog buddies.

I hereby bestow this award to HeartinSanfrancisco because of all the reasons I mentioned in yesterday's post and her blog is definitely worth the trip to San Francisco. You won't be sorry.


Michael , over at the Wonderful World of Nothing Worthwhile (and another Californian! hmm), certainly deserves the silver thingy too. He's my bestest blog buddy and has a wonderful and wacky sense of humor, not to mention he's funny too...Go visit, espcially on Tuesdays, where he answers questions on any topic! (except mine ;-( (but that's another story!)

So there you have it, the Silver Thingy Awards!

A little something before you leave (this has nothing to do with the above just made me laugh). I can't help it, it's my sick sense of humor coming out.

10 Things I Like About Myself

HeartinSanFran tagged me for the "10 Things Meme" to list 10 things I like about myself.
Heart did her list with charm, intelligence, caring and humor that she usually portrays in her blogs. She's a terrific writer and I love reading her because she takes you right there when she does and is so "heart"felt. I thank her for enriching my life with her stories and wit.

In tagging me with this meme, she said about me.. "I love her sense of fun and her quirky charm which brightens the blogosphere for so many. " Wow...I do? I have absolutely no idea what I do here and my intent in doing it is just to have some fun, so her words mean an awful lot to me and I thank her for that.

So, here's a list of 10 things I like about myself:

1) My sense of humor and fun. It gets me through a lot and often gets me in trouble. But I'm at a point in my life that it doesn't matter! And that's a great feeling!

2) My curly hair. It's about time! I mean I've had it all my life and did everything I could to straighten it, but now, I've accepted it, (maybe cause I got it from Dad :-) I've grown it long and just love the way it looks.

3) My sense of fashion, althought I'm sure there are those who don't feel the same..hehe.
I like funky things, colorful things, big jewelry, wild shoes.... and altho I work in a very conservative office I still dress funky in spite of it. (I even got my first tatoo just last summer).

4) I've had the opportunity to be blessed with a Mom who did her best with my brother and I and I now have the opportunity to serve her in her last days here. She's has alzheimers and is in a nursing home now. But I go there every chance I get and sit with her and make her laugh and smile. I like that.

5) I've been independent most of my life.
My stubborness has gotten in the way of having people help me when I needed it though. I've always been one to learn how to do "things" in order not to ask for help. I like learning new things, however, there are times when help is needed and at this point in my life I don't hestitate to ask for help. ( Help me pllleeeaassseeeee!)

6) I'm a good cook. I love to cook, although I don't make so much time for it today. My dream is to someday have a great big kitchen in order to do this a lot more often. My Mom was a great cook and made meals that could feed an army. She was always giving away food to all the neighbors...I remember telling her that she made too much all the time. Guess who does the same thing today????? Know any armies that need a cook?

7) My accomplishments (way too many to list here, hehe). I worked hard to get where I am today, against all odds and in spite of myself.

8) My intuition. I have this uncanny ability to just know things. But sometimes I'm just afraid to follow it's path, unfortunately for me.

9) I don't have any regrets. I've always told people that if I had my life to live all over again, I'd do it exactly the way I've done it...I like myself today and I wouldn't be this way had I done things differently.

10) Seeing the world without "rose colored glasses". In the past, I used drugs and alchohol to block out reality. Now I use my sense of wonder and curiousity to bring it back......and it's a wonderful feeling.
Thank you Heart for allowing me to take a look/see into me again....I must do this every once in a while to take stock and to see just how far I've come, or not!

If you want to do this 10 Things You Like About Yourself, please do....I recommend it.

Repost - Gratitude 101

A fellow blogger recently posted her 100 things she was grateful for. It served to remind me that I used to do a gratitude list every night before I went to sleep, listing only five things on it. It seems that the words “used to” show up in my life a lot lately. Seems I may have forgotten about the present moment and spontaneity. I’ve got to move beyond this “stuck” point in my life….(maybe tomorrow) lol……

In the meantime, my gratitude list, 100 things randomly plucked out of my brain as I type along (I’m not going to number them given that I like the randomness of it all): a new day, Mom, coffee, good friends, music (all kinds depending on my mood of the moment, my years spent with hub(good and bad because it added to my essence), my sick sense of humor (it gets me thru the rough times), a good book (the kind again depends on my mood), did I mention coffee?, shower massages!!! ;-) , clean sheets, my job and the oh so nice people I work with, good and lasting friendships, meeting new people and fellow bloggers, on time train schedules, green lights, bright colors, new shoes, new clothes, old jeans and tee shirts, the peace and serenity that hit me maybe twice a year, smiles, kids laughing, the unconditional love of my lil dog, comfortable chairs, memories of Dad, the ability to write this list on this blog with these fingers and this computer, seeing laughter on people’s faces and their eyes lighting up because I’m there and vice versa, cooking, eating out, bbq, the ocean, the mountains, staying in bed on rainy or snowy days, having a bed to stay in, the color purple, the smell of lavender, working in a very nice part of NYC, my funky jewelry, a/c, sleep, ability to exercise, not drinking or smoking anymore, heat in winter, vacations, sunshine, love, moonlight coming thru my bedroom window, sex, makeup, makeup sex, razors, scented candles, dirt roads, snow, shovels, mittens, Seinfeld (speaking of makeup sex), funny movies, computer games, microwave ovens, pedicures, spray on tan, ice cubes, umbrellas, all stores, the ability to have money to purchase things in stores, my mom’s sense of humor (I think she gave me some), my dad’s smile and curly hair, paper clips, Velcro! , delete buttons, fresh mozzarella (orgasmic), sun glasses, cell phone covers with lil straps, light weight brief cases, shit, anything that’s light and lets me ease up on what I have to carry, my hairdresser, body lotion, linen spray, body paint, men, did I mention coffee? And sex? (Why does my mind always come back to coffee and sex?) which leads to my next grateful thing – therapists…lol, big windows, wild curtains, comfy slippers, matching underwear, comfortable bras, raincoats, baseball caps, beach towels, falling leaves, big old trees, butterflies, perfume, vanilla ice cream and the fact that I’m still breathing and appreciating what I have, what I am, and what I can become………”Live well, laugh often, love much”…..

Test Time Tuesday

Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town. George Carlin

You Are Strawberry Cake

Fresh, sassy, and romantic.
You're a total flirt, who never would turn down a sugary treat.
Occasionally you're a bit moody - but you usually stay sweet!

You Belong in Rome

You're a big city soul with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any better?

Have a great Tuesday.....

Spicy Coffee and 11 Layers

Who put the cayenne pepper right next to the cinnamon in the cabinet? That'd be me, unless my lil Snot dog grew hands and suddenly felt the urge to rearrange my spice cabinet, but I digress.
Woke up this morning, feeling fine (oh that's a song!) and sleepily worked my way into the kitchen to make myself a pot of coffee. I always sprinkle cinnamon into the grounds before I make it. I reached up into the cabinet and see it...then done....ahhhhh yes!

A Commute From Hell

I was looking forward to another fine day at work on Wednesday. The forecast was for rain.

I woke up to thunder, lightening and rain of biblical proportion. I listened as the weather forecaster called for a tornado warning until 7AM. Tried to walk the Snot dog, operative word - TRIED! Well he can just hold in it then!!! Geeze.

My drive to the parking lot where I take my train usually takes 20 minutes. Yesterday it took three hours! There were flash floods all over the place. Cars were stuck in standing water...I got stuck on an off ramp and had to sit and wait for about an hour and and half until the water receeded. I had no choice. There were five cars already stuck there!
When I finally got to the parking lot, I learned that all trains to NYC were cancelled. Mind you it's 90 degrees out with about 95 percent humidity. Every one was soaked from the rain and then the heat. Odorific!!!! And their usually pleasant commuting personalities turned a wee bit more nasty, leaning more towards homicidal rage!

To top it all off, that tornado really did touch down, in Brooklyn! The first one EVER there. This is not Kansas people..this is New York City!!!!

I gave up going into the city and took a shuttle to one our company's other offices and worked there all day............I should have stayed home! I mean after traveling for such a long time I at least expected to be at a nice vacation spot...right?
So how was your day???????

See how evil you really are!!!

How evil are you?

10 Lies My Mom Told Me

Patti tagged me for the meme that's making it's way around the blogosphere...

Ten (10) Lies My Mother Told Me

1) Eat all your vegetables, it'll make your hair curly. (This one I never understood even as a lil one, because my hair was already curly, so I always asked what should I eat to make it straight.)

2) If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all. (I knew this was a lie after I heard my parents curse the neighbors out, curse at the TV, yell at someone on the phone etc.)

3) If you lie, your tongue will turn black. (this one had me scarred for a while...I always checked my tongue in the mirror before I went to bed).

4) Don't play so rough, you'll poke somebody's eye out....(and to paraphrase George Carlin, have you ever poked anyone's eye out, nonetheless seen anyone with their eye poked out as a result of just "playing" ?)

5) If you swallow your gum, your insides will stick together.

6) Wait an hour after eating before you swim, or you'll get cramps and drown.

7) If you're not good, we'll have to send you to the "Bad Girls" Home. (This scarred me! )

8) If you waste paper, you won't go to heaven. (I have no idea where this came from, but I believed it so much so that even today I'll use both sides of the paper. My friends make fun of me when I do this while playing Pictionary!)

9) Wear a hat or you'll catch your death......

10) You're not going anywhere until you clean your plate. (I went, I saw, and I conquered!)

I'm taggin Oger the Caveman and Boondoggled.

Ahhhhh Spot

Where I find serenity.
(The most southern tip of NY).

When I can't make it to the beach I come here to sit and ponder...ponder and sit....sometimes I read or take a walk thru the woods...It has everything I need to find peace within. Big old trees, secretative paths, water....

Where do you find your serenity?

Monkey Monday!!!

Happy Monkey Monday!

I went on a little sight seeing trip this weekend. Actually it was only a few blocks away from my house. It's a Revolutionary War House. One of the many where George Washington slept..hehe. I took some pics of it and the surrounding landscape with my new camera (which I will show you a little later this week). But that's not what I really want to say here...although I just did..but hey, ok, so I did!

In order to download the pics from the picture card on my camera I'm to insert the card into a little card holder first that fits my computer because the card itself doesn't fit. I forgot that! In my eager excitement (obsessiveness) I took the card from the camera and put it into the slot in my laptop. That's the moment I remembered it's supposed to go into the holder first! Damn, damn, and damn! It's like when a VCR tape used to get stuck in your VCR, only this was 100 times smaller! Damn! I didn't have a little tiny screwdriver to get it out!! I tried tweezers, pins, banging it on it's side! I thought to myself "I'm not taking this into the store to get this out, this is crazy!!!! I felt so stupid! Damn again! In desperation I pushed the card "holder' into the slot and it caught onto it and came out! What a fool am I...., I sang all night. And no, I didn't break my laptop nor the picture card! Lucky again!!!

I need someone to watch over me!!! Damn!

If I Only Had a Brain and something to blog about

Happy Thursday (is it really Thursday already?) Yeah I guess it is! Ut oh...I gotta get some things done at work by tomorrow!!! Damn, my work sure interferes with all the other good "stuff" I like to do! ;-)

I have a new digital camera...It's really neat. I'm carrying it with me now in case I see a good pic to portray here...But ...I forgot that the battery needs to be recharged every now and then and it takes a good 3 hours to do that.

So my trek out onto the streets of NYC produced nothing yesterday, nada, squat....and I was really excited about capturing an "only in New York" moment! I went out to "on the streets", and that's where I saw him, handing out brochures, covered in tatoos with piercings all over his face.....oh well, next time.

In the meantime I got nothing!....It's been that sort of week. I hate everything kinda week. Not anyone who reads my blog, mind you, but everyone else...hehe.

Hey Abbot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who's On First????????????????

You have to be old enough to remember Abbott and Costello, and too old to REALLY understand computers, to fully appreciate this. For those of us who sometimes get flustered by our computers, please read on...
If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch, "Who's on First?" might have turned out something like this:

ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.
ABBOTT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.
ABBOTT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
ABBOTT: Wallpaper.
COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
ABBOTT: Software for Windows?
COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses and run my business. What do you have?
ABBOTT: Office.
COSTELLO:! Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
ABBOTT: I just did.
COSTELLO: You just did what?
ABBOTT: Recommend something.
COSTELLO: You recommended something?
COSTELLO: For my office?
COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?
ABBOTT: Office.
