It's always nice to come back after a 3 day weekend to comments like "You look like you got some sun". It makes up for all the times I come back from a vacation to people asking, "Did you leave your apartment at all?"
I am a total pen snob and refuse to use the pens the company supplies us with, so I go out and I buy my own. My pen of choice right now is a TUL Retractable Gel Pen. It is amazing. I have never loved a pen as much as I love these (Note: TUL - Feel free to send me free ones.) But a tip for anyone who runs out to Office Max and picks some up - Don't forget to remove the small plastic nub from the tip. You will save yourself the frustration of trying to figure out why your new pen doesn't work and the feeling of stupidity when you realize why...
I don't care that every book club in America has read the book. I don't care that it is an insanely popular movie. I don't care that it is making everyone want to travel the world. I will not read Eat. Pray. Love. To me, it's the 42 year old housewife equivalent of Twilight.
As I sit here and write this, I can't tell if that is a car alarm going off, a bird, or an alien invasion....
You know what I like about my job? That no one is trying to kill me on a daily basis while I do it. That's the number one reason I turned down that spy job with the CIA. That and I shoot like a girl. (I blame a lack of video games while growing up. But I am oddly accurate with a bow. That I blame on Girl Scout camp.)
Tomorrow is my boss' birthday and I am bringing in Dark Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes. Yes, I am going to earn some major brownie cupcake points.
