I have a bad feeling that this can get ugly really fast:

I'm back!

I'm back from my three-day trek across most of the U.S. to bring Brian home. We drove from Lexington, KY to Phoenix, AZ in three whole days. It was a killer, let me tell ya! More on the trip later, but now I get to be loving housewife to my baby and prepare dinner. Meatloaf, green-bean casserole, and mashed potatoes tonight.

I'm so happy! I've got everything I ever wanted....a great career and someone to love and who loves me. Couldn't get much better than this! :)

Ah, the memories...

I'm here at home, having a glass of wine, and reminiscing of the goold old 1980s. Sigh. Such simple times. What a better way to reminisce properly than to play good '80s music.

As we speak, I'm listening to Motley Crue "Shout At The Devil".

Also on my playlist right now:
  • Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam "Lost In Emotion"
  • Samantha Fox "Naught Girls (Need Love Too)"
  • The Whispers "Rock Steady"
Sometimes I do hate being a grown up and have grown up problems. I also don't like the fact there is NO good music nowadays, NO good fashion, NO good TV. :(

Maybe if I click my heels three times and say "There's no place like the '80s", perhaps I can magically be sent back in time.

I'm going to give it a shot. Wish me luck!

...on a Sunday afternoon.

(If you listened to oldies, you would know that song. For those that only listen to the new stuff, try old stuff every now and then. You might like it.)


Hi all!!! I'm back from dropping off one of my kitties at my sister's place and dropping off her Camaro that she "sold" to me last year to help her pay for school. I had to give her my passive kitty, Sugar, as she wasn't getting along with my hyperactive kitties. She was sad and depressed here. Always watching her back and hiding in the bathroom. I hope she will be happier at my sister's house.

So today, I have my favorite online radio station on, and cleaning my entire apartment from top to bottom as my baby, Brian, is moving here with me at the end of the week. I'm going to fly out to Lexington, KY, and have the fun (<---insert sarcasm) time of driving across the country to Phoenix. But he's worth it!

What else is going on? Well, my (ex) best friend's boyfriend shot himself in the head last week in front of her. She ended up going to jail for back child support she owes. Sigh. It's ALWAYS something with her. Always. She never has any peace in her life. The reason that I called her my ex best friend is because when something always comes up in her life, she reaches out to me and another guy she used to date for help. For the past three years since I've known her, there has always been something going on. I just had enough of it! If it makes me a bad friend, I don't care. I need to focus all energy on me and now, Brian. So I'm avoiding her like the plague. I know she's going through a rough time right now with her bf's suicide, but I'm sorry, I just can't handle her drama anymore. I'll let the few people around her (she doesn't very many people in her life) help her out. I'm done. Finito.

Back to house cleaning I go. I hope you all are having a relaxing and/or fun weekend. Toodles!

I was a raging bitch all day yesterday, as you may have noticed on my post about Southwest Airlines employee who quit and sued after a friendly prank. (I still stand behind my opinion of her).

It all started when I was rushing out the door to go to work without taking my happy pill. I got close to my car and remembered about the pill, and decided to go back and get it as I know how I will get (i.e. mega bitch) if I don't take it. So I got it, put it in my pocket, and was on my merry way.

On the way to work, I stopped at Jack In The Box for some breakfast, paid cash for it, and stuck the coins in my pocket where I put my happy pill. I got to work, and I don't like the "jingle jangle" sound of coins in my pocket, so I empty it out and put the coins in the cupholder, along with my happy pill.

So all day yesterday, I was like that crazy trading spouses wife.

Feeling better today. I'm sure those around me will be happy about that, too.

Happy Friday to you all! :)

Deal With It!

From USA Today:

Southwest prank turns out to be no joke

Throughout the airline industry, Southwest Airlines is known for being a fun and relaxed company to work for. "But the airline's jocular style may have gone too far,” according to The Washington Post (free registration). The paper makes that assessment after a federal appellate judge ruled last week that the city of Albuquerque and its police department can be sued for a practical joke that seems to have gone wrong at Albuquerque International Sunport. So, what prank could have gone so wrong? The 2002 incident began after customer service supervisors and co-workers staged a mock arrest of a customer service agent who was near the end of her “probationary” status after starting employment with the carrier. Meant as part of a well-intentioned prank, co-workers convinced three city police officers assigned to the airport to approach the employee -– identified as Marcie Fuerschbach -– as she was worked the ticket counter.

The officers told Fuerschbach the airline had turned up an outstanding warrant for her arrest during the background check, and they proceeded with the mock-arrest: confiscating her airport badge, employee badge and keys. Fuerschbach also claims she was “forcibly” handcuffed. As officers pretended to take her away as part of the mock arrest, one of Fuerschbach's co-workers yelled out, "Congratulations for being off probation." Co-workers in the terminal then cheered for Fuerschbach as she had her lapel pinned with Southwest wings.

But in a lawsuit filed over the incident, Fuerschbach complains the prank left her “embarrassed and humiliated.” The complaint adds that Fuerschbach, now 48, continued to "cry uncontrollably" even after she was released from her mock arrest, and that she had to take ibuprofen and Tums to ease her discomfort. According to Andrews Publications, Fuerschbach claims to have seen a psychologist who diagnosed her with post-traumatic stress disorder following the incident."

It was meant as a celebration and we regret that the prank was interpreted as anything other than that," says Southwest spokesman Ed Stewart. He adds that Fuerschbach's co-workers were "completely shocked" by her reaction and says the airline was "just trying to make an employee feel welcomed." As for the court ruling, the judge further ruled that Southwest is not liable for damages but said that the plaintiff may be eligible for workers' compensation payments.



So glad Santino didn't win! That pompous twit!

Best viewed with Netscape

As I was surfing the net tonight, I decided to use my much neglected Internet Explorer. Well, to my horror, I noticed that my blog doesn't load up properly with IE! The links and the webcam to my beautiful city are way down at the bottom of the page. Damn Bill Gates!

SO, rather than find and fix the problem, I'm going to do a celebrity endorsement and suggest y'all get Netscape. My blog looks better that way. Besides, Netscape isn't dull looking like IE. I haven't tried it with Firefox because I don't have it installed, so let me know if Firefox is being uncooperative, too.

Anyway...that's all for tonight. Night y'all! :o)

Mother Nature is a Tease

Sprinkles don't count for much; rain eludes Phoenix again

Disregard the sprinkle marks on your windshields: There was no measurable rain in the Valley as of late Tuesday, weather officials said.

But there were traces of rain reported in Peoria, Litchfield Park, Mesa, north Phoenix, Wickenburg and other areas. And that was enough to get people excited.

"It smells like rain and feels humid," said Jesse Matthews, 27, of Phoenix. "It sprinkled in my hand when I walked out of my apartment. (It was) cool."

Measurable rainfall equals at least 1/100 of an inch. However, traces are just that: You see the rain, feel it, but it's not enough to record.

Tuesday marked the 133rd consecutive day in without measurable rain at the official Sky Harbor International Airport reporting station. The previous record was 101 days from September 1999 to January 2000.

Meteorologist Mike Bruce of the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Phoenix said the dry spell could top the record if it lasts through March 27.

"We have had major storms before in March and early April, so it's not out of the question that we could still get one," Bruce said. "Climatologically, if it doesn't rain here through the early part of April, it's rare we'll get any rain here until the monsoon." Chances of a measurable rain today are 40 percent in the morning.

Good Day!

Good day mate! :)

Actually I mean it. It's a good day. I'm in a great mood!

2 more days til my baby gets here!!! Then after that, 2 1/2 weeks before he moves on out and we live happily ever after.

He's my prince charming.
