My team at work when I ask my manager for the rest of the day off.

JR-"Let me check with LW, can Mike take the rest of the day off?"
LW-"I was actually wondering if I could go home too, it's hot outside"
JR-"Yeah me too, I'd check with MS (his boss) but he already texted me this morning he wasn't gonna make it today"
LW-"Yeah, I have errands to run before rush hour"


Now I just have to wait til tomorrow to go to Lover's Leap. Ugh.

For which gorgeous miss should I root for in the Miss USA Contest?

And when the Yahoo screen lights up with the news that Miss RI has won before the show has hardly gotten underway in my living room, how should I react?

Boycott Rhode Island, the state with one of the highest unemployment rates.

They need the hype, it seems.

Forget button pushing. The real horror is being able to go out and buy
anything you want. Stores and dealerships fully stocked from coast to coast.

Its like being a god with a credit card.

Went to the bathroom at work. On the way back to my office had the desire to get some tea. Because I thought there was tea in my office I passed the kitchen without getting it. Got to my office and couldn’t find any tea there, so had to walk half a rope length back to kitchen to pick some up. Terrible day. It could of been worse though, if we did not have any cookies around here neither.

mirin

speaking of mirin... I can't believe the price has gone up to $44/quart bottle. I can afford only two of them now. SushiFesterers will have to suffer...

it's a dry year, and i determined neither to water nor mow my lawn. the lawn includes things like common mallow, peppergrass, dandelion and wood sorrel, all quite edible, so i've let them live their annual cycles and harvested when appropriate. however, the lawn looks a horror. my valley neighbors tend to mind their own business about it. one even got curious about the mallow harvest. but i soon had a steady barrage of caballeros del cespéd come a-knocking, telling me in not very good english that they would be oh so happy to fertilize my lawn for me.

fertilize? with all that good stuff growing in it i need to fertilize?

never mind, my spanish isn't good enough to express the complex issues involved. then a memory came to me. you had to live through the 60s:

¡cuba si! ¡yanqui no!

i dove for the spanish dictionary.

¡pradera si! ¡cespéd no!

i posted this on a small, discreet postage stamp-sized piece of paper next to the front doorknob. i haven't had a knock since.

(look it up, first worlders, you need to get into this.)

Looking for a good magazine to read while waiting for an appointment to see the doctor at the hospital.

Vitaliy M.

Yes I am Ok.

Just a test to see if I have a heart.

They called me [not bad maybe 10 minutes], went to the window to the right of the information booth, the first attendant says and points: turn right, then another right past the elevators. I get to the first window and the attendant is washing down the counter between us with anti-bacteria wash and says” Don’t get near me, I am sick”. I thinking great and you are working here today. Anyway she directs me to the next window, and a second attendant directs me to the phone inside her area and then they make arrangements for tomorrow.Hang up the phone, walk out the door and a different nurse follows behind me, I see one of those wash your hands bottle and put a good amount on my hands then the nurse says “I need that as well”. Jokingly, I say to her about the magazine, she laughed and assume they will take the magazine away.

Will see tomorrow if it is still there.

Fine and dandy, just one of checkups Uncle Sam wants to make sure you are still alive. Thanks for asking.
