To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Remember when I actually wrote on this blog?!?

Then I got snowed at work, so I basically sold my soul for a paycheck.

Ya... well... that wasn't so fun.

Three weeks ago, I told my boss that I was done, I didn't want to work anymore.

It didn't stick. He basically said "no". What the...

But, I got a REALLY nice raise... so I guess I sold my soul for a larger paycheck, which is a little better, I guess... and well, the majority of my soul actually was left at Senor frogs in Cancun a few weeks back anyway... so I didn't have much of one left anyway.
I got an all expense paid trip to Tulsa, OK!

No offense to any of you Oakies... but, I am SO glad I don't live in OK.

Did you know that the license plates there say "Oklahoma OK"? I get the paradox with the postal code... and while it's cleaver, the flip side is that you are admitting that your state is merely mediocre. Which it is.

To make matters worse, I arrived in Dallas at 1:30 AM and had to drive 4 1/2 hours to Tulsa. On my drive I saw 13 dead armadillos and 1 road kill... buffalo??? - Is that possible... whatever it was... it was HUGE. And, I also saw these signs, at least 6 of them, they said "Don't drive into the smoke." I don't get it? Besides the obvious idea that one should probably never drive into smoke intentionally, what would that mean? Why would the Oakies have so many of them? I didn't see any smoke! Anyone??? Bueller??? Bueller??? - I am serious, does anyone know the answer to this? It's buggin' me.
But, there was an upside! I got to go to my 4-year old nephew Christian's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. And, I am not going to lie... I liked it. I think that the ankle-biters were getting sick of me taking their tokens, but I did get a ridiculous amount of tickets playing skee ball (I HEART that game). And, I took Chloe, my newly 7-year-old neice, to IHOP and Barnes & Noble for her birthday which was on Tuesday. She dubbed it the "best day ever!" And, little Izzy turned 2 on Sunday, same day as Christian. So, I thought I'd give them all a shout out... Happy Birthday Muffins...
