Cool tools in the world of technology

Google Sketch Up

Have you seen this yet? I'm definitely not an artist, or even an architect, but I kinda like this tool.
I'm a little freaked out though by the guy they automatically put in the beginner template. Why is he there?

Like I said, I am not an artist, but I drew a quickly-thrown-together box house with a pool. At least that's what I'm calling it. I don't give a crap what you think about it.

Technology just interests me and I like cool things. Because I'm cool. And you are not.

So there. I just shared some new technology with you. Take it!

F My Life Wednesday (yes it's a weekly thing)

Hmmm, wonder whether or not I'll be able to access the site on my computer this week? Or will I have to get there on my bberry? Let's find out.

Shit head.

"Today, I went to the grocery store. My checker was very hot. When it came time for me to pay, I swiped my debit card & the machine kept rejecting it. Sure that I had money in my account, I did it again, before the cute checker informed me that I was swiping my driver's license, not my debit card. FML." credit to F My Life.

That's kind of cute, something a normal person would do. I imagine they got a little flustered or were trying to be cool and just grabbed a similar card. I've come close to doing something like that.

"On ice or grass we'll kick your ass"

I love that slogan. Go Pittsburgh!

Work getting in the way

Yesterday was an extremely long day at work. Arrived at my normal 7:00am time and it all went to hell from there.

We had a contract negotiations meeting with our potential contractor starting at 8:30am. We did break for lunch for 45 mins but did not finish the meeting until 5-freakin'-15pm. And it wasn't even an interesting meeting. It was long and boring and painful. I was soooo dead tired when I finally left the building.

And I missed the next bus and would have had to wait another 20 minutes for the following bus. BUT, a guy looking for someone to get in his car going to Leesburg relented and decided he could take me to Dulles North. (It was in his best interest because of HOV restrictions) It was great, I was back at my Jeep in 30 minutes. It was the best part of the day. I became a slug yesterday. I have never been a slug commuter before. Not sure if I could do it on a regular basis though, just a little fearful of a weirdo picking me up.

Then as bad as a I felt, I still went walking around the lake and riding my bike around the long block. I felt great then.

So that's my day yesterday. How was yours?

Lance isn't doing so well in the "Tour" right now. Yes, he moved back up to 3rd but it is over.

I expect him to re-concede this tour to the douchebag Contador (the cheater). Oh well, I guess you can't win all of the them and there is always next year. Way to go Lance!

Also, I just found out what HTFU means. I kinda like it. Might even use it.

Overused phrase #1: Today is my Friday!

Time again for F My Life Wednesday

Kudos to F My Life.

Or not. WTF! Now that site is banned at work. I absolutely hate the fact that anything that could remotely have a word with s+e+x or f+u+c+k or h+o+r+n+y or what ever, gets banned at work.

Seriously, what the hell? I can get around it. I do have a cell phone. With internet access. And a blackberry. With internet access.

Ha! Hold me back, I think not. Now I have to go load it up via another device. You suck!

"Today, I came home about two hours early from a friend's party. After I walked in and upstairs, I quickly and quietly left and went back to the party. I guess my parents decided to have a little party as well. It's called a threesome with my neighbor. They still don't know that I know. FML."

So there, take that work. Ha Ha Ha.

Oh well, have a nice Wednesday.

Looking forward to....

I have no earthly idea. I am lacking today, though I will admit that I am stillllll horny.

Weekend was good but I want more!

And yes, I am at work and this is totally inappropriate to be thinking right now, but I'm also pretty bored. Hmmm, want to know exactly what is going through my head right now? A little bit of lickin, and a lot of wet. Mmmm.

I'm horny. There, I said it. Can someone help?

Yeah, yeah, I guess I have to wait until I get home and see hubby. Alot of good you guys are.

I mean, I really, really want sex. And I want it now!

Holy Crap! Today is F My Life Wednesday

In short - thanks F My Life.

"Today, while at my boyfriend's house waiting for him to shower, his mother slams a pair of underwear on the table and tells me if she ever finds something like that in her son's room again, she is forbidding him from seeing me. The underwear isn't mine. FML."

There you have it, another edition of someone's lowest moments. Gotta feel bad for some of these people.

Walking and biking around

I got back in the saddle again.

After work yesterday, and after I made the kid's dinner, I made my way to the lake. Son #3 came with me on his bike. And I walked around the lake.

Not a tough chore, but one that I have recently neglected. And because I felt so bad for neglecting it, when I got back home, I pulled out the bike and proceeded to bike around the big block.

I felt so much better after those 2 stints of exercising. It felt wonderful. Now if I could only figure out a way to stop neglecting the obvious need. Any ideas?

Sunshine in the city

We have had pretty darn nice weather lately. Especially considering it is summer, it is the DC metro area, and we have global warming to contend with. Keep up the good work Mother Nature!

All in all, the weekend turned out pretty good.

Yesterday, we got up at 3 frickin' 30. Yes, in the a.m. We took the boat down to Burke Lake and hubby fished. He didn't get many hits, so we decided to leave. I guess this would have been about 10ish. The sun hadn't even really been out yet.

From there we went a little further and put the boat in at Occuquan Regional Park.

I had my fold-up chair sitting at the front of the boat (no hard boat seats for me), had my book in hand, and off we went.

I have to get the pictures off of my camera, but it was lovely. I finally got a tan going (I'm usually close to black by this time of the summer). It was just flat out a great day.

Thanks for asking.

Oh yeah, and my boys are back home from the week at their dad's. I'm glad they're back.

It's Thursday, but really it is Friday

for me, the lucky one, the federal worker, the one on the 4-5-9 schedule.

I know, don't brag. Seriously my officemate, S, and I have nothing to do. Do you know what nothing means? It means, literally nothing.

I'm so bored that I can't even get up the energy to blog. How pathetic is that?

That's why I am soooooo glad it is my Friday. And I only have 1 hour of work left. And, in case, you didn't get it by now, then I am out the door for the weekend.

The weekend. I have nothing to do also. Hubby and me are not getting along. Of course, we aren't, the kids are gone for the week. What? Get along, maybe have sex, maybe hang out differently? Yeah, right. Try being married to my husband.

We were supposed to go camping for a long weekend (since I'm off tomorrow), but of course that isn't happening. Remember, I just said we weren't talking. What a jackass!

Sorry for the drab, whoa is me, writing. I'll try to do better in the future.

Have a great weekend. (If I don't blog over the weekend)

It's been a while.....

wow, it's really been a while since I've posted. Sorry, I was sick, didn't come to work Monday or Tuesday.

I'm better now, not 100% (matter of fact, much of today I didn't feel so hot), but feeling better.

So let's get right to it:

F My Life Wednesday

"Today I had sex with my fiancee. My panties fell behind the bed. Later, when I went to get them, I found three other pairs. Only one pair was mine. FML."

Have a great Wednesday.

I have to work harder at this blog. No! You think so? Duh?!

Delusions of Grandeur

My boss suffers from this malady. He's younger, wants to be on the fast track, has to have the best and the biggest technologies (somewhat like me in this category), but he is also constantly changing his mind.

We will map out a strategy, an architecture and a few days later he comes up with Plan B, and Plan C, and so on. Not only does he present backup plans, but then one of them suddenly becomes the primary plan.

I know that we are still in the negotiation and planning stage, but dammit, make a decision and stick with it! It's becoming very annoying.

Is this day over yet? The workday? Are you sure? Can we get released early today?

I know, I know, I'm whining. I'm done.

Take off running

I jog/walked again last night. 2 nights in a row! I am so proud. Wouldn't you know it, it sprinkled when I got halfway around the lake. I was lucky. It started pouring as soon as I got back to my jeep.

Not that running in the rain would be that bad but I was planning on going out after that and the hair would have been a disaster.

This is on the lake I am running around. Its a very nice lake, goes behind the houses, townhouses, and condos and one part goes along the road. I think there are 4 bridges on the path and dammit, I still don't know long of a distance it is all the way around.

Go me! Keep up the good work.

F My Life Wednesday

And another one comes around - thank you F My Life!

"Today I was driving 3 of my guy friends to a party that was half an hour away. There was an awkward silence for most of the trip. I just figured out why now. I've had sex with all 3 of my guy friends. They talk about it when I'm not around. FML."
