Alas, after a rousing rendition of Sweet Caroline melted into Wild Thing and Jonathan Papelbon jogged out to the mound, the next three batters and the series was put to rest, and I got to sing along with Dirty Water in Fenway. The one thing that would have made the game better would have been Gange going out there.

Is it possible to be in love with a new washer and dryer? Ours has been dead for awhile so it's so nice to have another one.

I truly believe it is, as my washer sucks so much I would probably want to hug any new one that took its place.

Sorry no Gagne. Only a smattering of boos, *ahem* huh?
I think the guy with the pretzels may have been an improvement if they had called on him.

Yes it is possible to be in love with a washer and dryer

1. Co-worker on a power trip ; if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. This motto may or may not last. I am betting not, the buffer-zone is gone.

2. J's brother visited me at work. I hadn't seen him in like forever. I feel old. It was nice to see him, though.

3. The broken leg gods are haunting the store and I am cowering. One gal did her ankle in (as she was getting ready for vacation) and a guy did his fibula in and it is painful to watch him walk. Just in a splint, as the other brace was not supportive enough, and very swollen, for goodness sakes ice and elevate and maybe walk with one crutch. It was very uncomfy watching him walk.
I am just shaking in my boots, er tennies, and being very careful. PTSD? Yep, I got it, 2 years later.

1. Coworkers on power trips suck, and can make the day long and difficult.

2. Cool! But not feeling old.

3. BE CAREFUL!!! You've aleady met the broken leg gods...maybe you have immunity.

4. Yes, a smattering of boos, mostly because everyone was in shock that Jocoby Ellsbury got caught stealing for the first time since he was, like, born.

5. I think I would be a better choice than Gagne at this point because I can't actually throw the ball all the way to home plate so no one would hit any of my pitches...unlike him, who likes to throw the ball all the way to home plate in a nice, hitter-friendly zone.

I haven't been online for 48 hours

The laptop is back and works fine......other than they locked something so now the internet doesn't work. My sister and I have both been on the tech support phone and they don't know what the error message that we have means The computer says it's connected when plugged directly into the modem. It also recognizes the wireless connections. Yet when we click on the internet it says it can't show the page The internet worked just fine last week; it was the screen that broke. So someone somewhere did something to it other than just fix the broken screen because the whole thing is acting funny. I have to take it to Staples tomorrow.

The boyfriend was home, and passed out, all day and night yesterday and this morning so I wasn't able to get into their room to use the computer. It sucked ass

I'm $500 away from my Mac laptop. I can't wait to have my own computer again.....and something a little more reliable. The laptop isn't even a year old and it's the 2nd time my sister has had to send it in.

next week at this time I will be at home in MN using my ancient computer and sleeping in my own bed. I'll be home for 4 whole days this time. I cannot wait! On Wed I have an appt to get my hair done. Since it's by one of my favorite lakes, I'm going to swing by there to wander around. The rest of the week is up in the air other than I really want to go to all of my lakes and spend some time with my grandpa and great aunt. I don't even think I'm going to let my friends know I'm in town, other than 1 friend that has a birthday. I just need to be at the lake or at home for a few days and relax........

I just sent an email to 4 of my former coworkers from rotten job #1. Two of them escaped the same time I did and now happily work for a competitor. I know the name of a supervisor that started right after I quit. I just received an out of office auto response from this guy. So that means someone recently quit out of the other 2 that still work for the company because ex-employee emails always get routed to the supervisor for a few months after. I wonder which one quit and why. I just saw them both in Feb right before I left. I emailed a few other people that I know are still there to find out the scoop on who left. I still get updated on office drama, over 1 year later, so I'm surprised I didn't hear about this one. Damn. Due to my lovely internet situation I won't be able to communicate with anyone. I can read my email on my cell phone but it's too much of a pain in the ass to type of an email.....especially one so important as office gossip! I won't be able to respond to anyone until I get home from work tomorrow night, which would be after midnight MN time.

I took 4 days off next week to go home. The way our schedule works, it will be 2 "weekends" back to back so I won't lose any hours. However, I wanted to leave the day before so I requested to work the am shift instead of my usual pm shift. So today my Chef tells me he's going to give it to me off and I can use PTO time. I tell him I don't have any PTO yet but he's convinced I do because this week is my 3 month anniversary ( ) Later on he tells me he checked with HR and I'll have PTO soon but I can borrow from that time and pay it back later. So he gets me all set up to have the day off and then he did the schedule for another team and realized they're short staffed on that very day he just gave me off. So.....next Tuesday I have to get my lazy ass up at 4:30 AM and work in the warm, suffocating breads kitchen for 8 hours with the lead baker. He's a trip so it won't be too bad but it'll just be the 2 of us so I'll have to do all the crap work Fun stuff.

In other fun and excited work news....my sister stopped by the resort today to drop something off that I had forgotten at home. I gave her a tour of the resort and she met my Chef....who is quite the character. He's a riot. It's been a long time since I've had a nice boss. He was sooooooo excited to have a visitor. He showed her around and used a lot of technical terms that she had no clue what he meant. It was a fun time. So now she'll have a visual to my countless Chef stories I tell her and she'll understand why I talk funny when I talk about him. He's from Germany or Austria or someplace like that.

I took the laptop to Staples today and spoke with the store manager about the computer. At first I got the 16 year old boy who barely knew how to open my computer up but thankfully the manager was there to help. He told me that if the HP tech support didn't know what our error messages meant then he was really hesitant to do a $50 diagnostic test on it because there would be no guarantee he could fix it. So instead he talked me into paying $60 to back up all our files and then clear the entire computer to start over. HP is sending us a recovery cd. I feel like my sister just wasted $60. All she really wanted backed up was iTunes. I still am really confused on how to do that even though I've read the apple website countless times. I don't know why they made it so difficult. Anyways......so she probably doesn't even have $60 worth of music purchased from itunes. It was a complete impulse phone call for both of us but I've thought about it all day and I really don't think I needed to leave it with them. But it's her computer and her money and it really needs to be fixed because our current internet situation is driving me mad. I can't stand that I cannot get online until 11 PM and only on days where the bf is at work. It should be back home tomorrow and hopefully the cd from HP will be here before we all go on our vacations next week.
