Manic Monday - The "Where The Hell Have I Been" Edition

Bad Blogger!  Bad, bad Blogger!  I know, I know.  I haven't been around much lately, but I have some really good reasons, such as:

Last week I was only in the office 4 days because everyone had Memorial Day off.  And yet I still worked 40 hours.  Can you do the math?  40 divided by 4 = 10.  Yeah... 10 hour days.  That's what happens when people have time off and those who are left must carry the load.  Yes, I am a martyr.  One day someone will name a street after me, I am sure of it.

Did you know I am going to Vegas?  Because I am!  Never in my life have I needed a vacation as much as this trip to June at the end of the month.  5 of my best friends and I are hitting Sin City for a little sun, a little fun, and enough frozen beverages to reverse global warming.  So I've been busy planning all those details - like how to get 6 girls and all their luggage to the hotel.  Oh, what's that?  I already booked a limo that will show up with roses and champagne for us fools like we're castoffs from "The Bachelor"?  Again, someone will name a street after me some day...

Even though we are well into summer some of you may have noticed that professional hockey is still being played.  We are currently 5 games into the Stanley Cup Finals.  And I think a little team called The Chicago Blackhawks leads the series 3-2.  So some of my nights have been spent actually watching hockey, something I have never done in my 28 years of being a sports fan. Case in point: I had to ask my mom what a Power Play was last night.  I am so much more of a baseball girl.

I decided that last night today might be the day to flee the country and assume another identity.  So in preparation I dyed my hair.  Nothing drastic - I'm actually trying to get back to my natural color.  But kudos to one co-worker for noticing.  The $8 box of hair dye and I thank you!

So as you can see - I have been a little busy.  But I am getting back on schedule so I should be around more.

And I'd like to thank all of you for sticking around.  I haven't lost a single follower since I went on my sabatical/hiatus/whatever.

Great to see you back in the saddle again.

I had no idea you were going to Vegas, but hope you have fun, and make sure you take lots of photos and post them here. :) And oh, right, lots of blog posts about it. How's that movie challenge coming on your other blog?

The Office Scribe said...

It's a... challenge.

I have to reviews I need to post and I just can't get in the mood for Blade Runner.

Unfinished Rambler said...

Blade Runner is one of my favorites, apropos of nothing. It isn't exactly a happy movie, though, so I understand you're not being in the mood.

Chris said...

You HAVE warned Vegas that you're coming, right?
