TV: The Bachelor

Prince Lorenzo messed up big time dumping the pretty Italian girl for Bridezilla.

Houston Socialite Erica is still getting her say so in two weeks after getting dumped and truely is bringing the dumb blonde stereotype to a new and VERY creepy level.

Work Related: Internet Issues

Yesterday my internet was down, I could get on with dial-up but barely could function like that.
I contacted my internet provider who sent me to someone else, who sent me to someone else who sent me back to the beginning.
It was all very upsetting.
Finally it came back on it's own.
I should have just taken nap.

Happy Fall Y'all

I stole this idea from someone else, but I think it looks rather festive.

Even if we don't really get to enjoy fall colors down here.

100 Word Stories

As submitted to Weekly Challenge #27
The subject is Pizza


Things were going pretty well with Paula and her new Beau

She could not believe such a catch of a guy was not already taken.

He opened the door for her, sent flowers, and even on occasion…cooked her dinner.

Surely, at last, this was “the one”

They laughed and cuddled and had begun planning a future together.

Then one evening her dreams were shattered.

Paula walked into the kitchen to find a horrible site.

What in the hell are you doing?

She screeched, then burst into tears.

Oh, this could never work now.

He had cut the pizza into squares.

Work Related: Recalling emails?

I always laugh when some one in the office sends out an email, then right after another email comes that says......
"whoever" would like to recall the message titled "whatever"

Usually this happens because the person sent some mis-information, or the right information went out to the wrong agents or it was an unfinished draft that got sent by mistake.
Maybe by "recalling" the message the sender is hoping it will not be read?

Whatever the reason, trying to recall an email from cyberspace is like herding cats.
It just cannot be done.

Working Sick

I've been working sick the last few days and blogging has been the last thing on my mind.

Let's see,
So far I have missed Sunday's carnival of cats, Kitty Movie Monday, Tummy Tuesday, and Wordless Wednesday. I also did not do a 100 word story this week or review The Bachelor.

I apologize to anyone from these blogrolls that stopped by to see nothing at all and I will try to do better next week.

I'm so sick today from getting a bad taco last night.
Not naming names but don't eat at that the new Mexican place at exit 15 on southbound I45.

Rain, Rain and more Rain

Lots of rain in Houston and Galveston County.
This is the first time in the 2 years we have lived here that the canal has risen over the dock and into the yard.

Work Related: A New Sales Strategy

Well, I met with a new client this evening to see a couple of properties.
The second one did not have electric and by 7pm it is getting pretty dark.

Well I keep a big flashlight in the trunk for those male clients that like to look behind stuff and up in attics--you know who you are-- and got it out for us to use.

So here we are going around in this dark house with the flashlight.
We couldn't see crap.
It was all rather ridiculous and I said, why don't I just meet you back over here in the morning.

She said, no I like it...Let's make an offer.

Maybe I should show them all in the dark...Ha.

Friday Cat Blogging: Black Cat

For Friday the 13th an old photo of Chandra and her kitty Al Pacino.
Pacino was born to a feral mother and never really tamed down enough to keep in the house. He never went to anyone but Chandra, and even let her dress him in doll clothes and put him in her dolly stroller. Pacino grew up to be a huge cat, but I don't think we ever took any other photos of him.

In Texas: Cruel? Unusual? Innovative?

Could preventing criminals from re-offending really be this easy?

TV: Dancing With the Stars

Country Music star Sarah Evans has eliminated herself from the competition citing "personal reasons".
It's shame she couldn't have made that decision before Willa Ford was voted off the dance floor on Wednesday, isn't it?

For all those thinking Houston Socialite Erica is not for real?
She was on our local news this morning, tiara and all.
What a flake!

100 Word Stories

Submitted to Weekly Challenge #25
at the IFOC 100 Word Podcast

There was no expression on Paula’s face
as she watched the flames engulf the Bayside Lounge.

As if in a trance, she stood quietly,
oblivious to the activities around her.

The wind blew hot air into her face and
smoke into her eyes, but still she stood.

Only moments before she was laughing and
enjoying Friday Happy Hour with her friends.

Everyone had gotten out safely but were now
pointing and whispering as if she had done something wrong.

This wasn’t her fault.

How could she have known daring a co-worker to light a fart
could cause this much trouble?

I'm So Blonde

So I had my "Well Woman" checkup yesterday.

The doctor was checking this one and that one and I am looking at the ceiling.
*La La La*

Then he moves onto phase two and casually says
"You must have a cat"

"Yes I do" I said, suddenly horrified.
"Why? Do you see some cat hair on me?????"

He burst out laughing and said NO of course not, but he had noticed a big scratch on my tummy.

I told him that was good because I always try to only carry the cat hair outside my clothes.

It's really hard to think up something intelligent to say in that situation.

The Bachelor

I hadn't really planned on blogging ABC's The Bachelor this season, but with two local girls receiving roses on the season premiere last night I cannot resist a comment or two.

Jami is from Galveston. She seems to have kind of a rough edge about her and says "Crap" a lot.

is from Houston and her job description is "socialite".
She already thinks she is a princess and I was a little surprised she is going forward.

The setting is Rome this time and 27 women wined and whined last night for a chance to get to know The Bachelor, Prince Lorenzo.
Only 12 will continue the journey, the rest were sent home in tears.
Should be fun.
