Had a bad day...

So I got a picture text from a friend that had the song lyrics "so you had a bad day..." playing behind a picture of Ray Lewis grimacing. It it great, I keep playing it over and over again, definitely brightens my mood and puts a smile on my face.

Wow, I am thrilled (as I'm sure most of you are also). What? You don't know what I am talking about, has your head been under a pillow for the last few days? No....not the inauguration stupid. PITTSBURGH'S GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL! My Steelers rule! You can't tell me you're surprised by that, they have the best defense around, no one can get through them. Oh yeah, and I suppose congratulations are in order for the Arizona Cardinals, and sorry about your team to the birdless wonders of Baltimore HA!

TGIF (again). And its time for a 4-day weekend (that's the perk if you are a fed). Not much else going on, getting my mind in gear for a lot of cleaning this weekend, my house needs it bad!

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Alone again. More often than not, lately, I am the only one in the office. Not that I mind, of course not, I am my own best company and it really is peaceful - though I will say, no one is disruptful anyhow, but sometimes, absolute quiet is nice.

And it is frickin' cold outside. We had about 1/4 inch of snow - surprise - when I left for work this morning at 5:40am. I didn't think they were calling for it, it was just a fluke. I want some real snow, 6, 10, 15 inches of that great, fluffy, white stuff. That would stop the DC metro area for a while. Now give it to me! I miss my snow.

Not much ado about Wednesday

Traditionally considered "over-the-hump" day, what is good about Wednesday? What is bad about Wednesday? I don't know, just random questions.

So we want to get another kitten. I'm not sure where I want to start; do I want to look in the local want ads, drive the whole way out to the animal shelter, or maybe just start with word of mouth.

Pimping my BlackBerry

So I finally got around to personalizing (I don't like the phrase "pimping") my BlackBerry. I have a BlackBerry Curve 8310 for work and it was a pretty boring electronic. Me, being IT guru, absolutely can't have things plain vanilla. I have to make them mine. So that's my focus this week. I've pretty much dressed up my LG Dare, even able to post pictures to here from it now, and movin' on to the PinkBerry.

Pittsburgh 'bout them Steelers! Here we go........

Sunday, January 11, 2009

More broken stuff thanks to a poor loser husband. he is such an asshole.


Here we go, Steelers, Here we go! Let's go Pittsburgh!

Friday, January 9, 2009

hmmmm, I really have nothing to say this early in the morning (today). TGIF is on my mind. I might get back to you later, or not, do you really care?

As you well know by now, if you even know where to find this blog, I am a HUGE Pittsburgh fan. Actually born and raised in Pittsburgh, but have transplanted a tad south. I am definitely not a fair weather fan who moves away and starts liking whatever team is closest. Nope, once a Pittsburgh girl, always a Pittsburgh girl. And that includes ALL my teams: Steelers, Penguins, Pitt Panthers, and yes, even my lowly Pirates. Very proud to be a Pittsburgher.

Our fish tank (one of them).

Okay, I'm a little frustrated. I have tried many templates and most of the new ones omit the top Blogger navigation bar. Why is this? I actually like this bar, am I that much in the minority. Can someone out there (helloooo) tell me or show me the code to add back in to view the nav bar? Anyone?

Pittsburgh stuff

These are just a few of the Pittsburgh-related items I received for Christmas. Yes, though you can't see it clearly from this view, Jerome Bettis signed the helmet AND added the "Bus" logo (rare). I love them.

Wow, did I post yesterday, I really can't remember at the moment. Oh well, so my good news from yesterday is that Pitt is #1! For the first time ever, my Panthers basketball team is ranked number 1. How awesome is that? Way to go Pitt!

Yes, I do remember posting yesterday, something about having to go back to work.....

Monday, January 5, 2009

So since I changed my template, I am missing the blogger stuff at the top and I don't like it. Somehow have to fix that, eventually.

Time to go back to work, holidays are over, back to school, and normal everyday life. BLAH!

Word of the Day

Today's Word of the Day is Yegg - a burglar who robs safes; safecracker.

Yesterday's Word of the Day was Xanthous - yellow; yellowish.

And Thursday (my birthday) the Word of the Day was Wanderlust - a strong desire to wander or travel.

Not so great word of the days, IMHO.

Friday, January 2, 2009

Good Morning! and welcome to the 2nd day of 2009. Okay, its really not morning anymore, but I just got up. My birthday is over (explains why I am just now arising). Nothing spectacular happened, but I had a nice, calm, relaxing day all around. No complaining here.

So what to do today. After I get showered and dressed, I think I am going to go shopping. I have some gift cards so I can spend some money on clothes for ME, what a concept!

Have a great day.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, I survived my birthday, but I had to take care of myself (and my hubby). We made a deal a long time ago that this was the one time I could let loose and he had to take care of me, well he didn't follow through. He was wasted before midnight and I had to take care of him. What a rat!

So he and his friends left this morning to go hunting until Saturday night or Sunday; the kids are leaving in an hour to go to their dad's; and me and the dog will be home alone; WHAT A GREAT BIRTHDAY PRESENT! I love it. I took tomorrow off so I have 4 days of alone time, me time, do whatever I want time; that's priceless.
