Today's reading challenge

(found over at Bookworming in the 21st Century) but thanks for Mandyfish's tweet.

For today's challenge, here's what I have to do:

1. Pick up the book you are currently reading.

2. Since it is December 22, turn to page 22 of your book.

3. Count down to the 22nd line on the page. (if there is a partial word on the page, you can leave it off)

4. Post a picture of your book cover along with the 22nd line from the 22nd page on your blog.

Here's mine:

Which reindeer am I?

You Are Blitzen

Always in good spirits, you're the reindeer who loves to party down with Santa.

Why You're Naughty: You're always blitzed on Christmas Eve, while flying!

Why You're Nice: You mix up a mean eggnog martini.

Christmas lights

So I finally put lights on the christmas tree. I am so not into decorating this year. I did the windows and front yard 2 weeks ago and then got derailed.

It might be awhile before the lighted tree gets any decorations. Sorry.

Yeah, this is not our tree.

another version of F My Life happening now

"Today, I found the only man to hate sex. He's my boyfriend. FML."

Wow, how sucky is that? Even better, what if he were your husband???????

How can you hate sex? Seriously. Don't you get itches that need to be scratched? You know what I mean?

Web video conferencing

So what's the best out there? I am doing some research (boss directed) into getting us video conferencing software. Our laps already have built-in web cams, so now we need the "system".

Care to share what your favorite system is to use? Is it Webex or something else.

Just like that spring/fall is back. It is 58 degrees outside in Washington, DC. It is also December 15th! Where is my snow?

I'm melting.

winning the lottery

I would absolutely love to win the lottery. (I mean, right, so would everyone else in the world.)

I could get myself out of debt with a little help from those pesky lottery winnings. I don't care how high or low the Mega Millions jackpot is, I'll take it. I won't be greedy.

Show some love. Send the lottery winnings my way. Please.

Super Bowl hangover

That's what we must have. A huge hangover from winning the Super Bowl last year. We are just not playing football. Not even close to playing ball.

Again, I have to say, SERIOUSLY? It's the Cleveland Browns. I mean, really?


It's the Browns.

Wow, I need some aspirin.

The Penguins won.

Weekly edition of F My Life!

"Today, I fell asleep on the train and accidentally wound up resting my head on a strange man's shoulder. When I woke up, I discovered that not only did he not object, but he decided to return the favor by resting his hand on my thigh. I was wearing a skirt. FML."

Wow, I don't know, I'm kinda horny now. Let's think about this. I could see this as a chapter in a mystery, couldn't you?

I really hope that the guy was good looking and not some grease-stained vagrant. That would definitely gross me out.

And that's why I don't allow myself to fall asleep on the metro or the buses. No thank you.

What would you do if this happened to you?

Seriously, it was the Raiders. Really, wasn't it all just a bad dream?

That didn't really happen, did it? The high and mighty, 6 times champs, Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the frickin', my time is so over, Oakland Raiders?

I must be having a nightmare. Surely that didn't happen?

Someone save me! Save my team! What the heck is happening this season? Where did my team go?

Will the real Pittsburgh Steelers please stand up?

It must be hockey season 'cause there is certainly no football worth watching anymore.

Bertucci's on Thursday

This was my lunch on Thursday: first the salad (italian dressing) and awesome bread....

and then the lovely, delicious, hot, crunchy, mouth watering Bertucci Pizza for One. I only managed to finish 2 pieces, but it was delicioso!

Here we go again...F My Life (the Wednesday edition)

"Today, at work I was told I'd be working over Christmas because I don't drink. Apparently it you're a tee total, you're not entitled to spend time with your family and are incapable of having fun. FML"

Boy, sure I am glad I drink!

That would be 5 1/2 month old Tigger on the top of the clock where he is not supposed to be.
