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

"Whoa, the compliments in this place..."

... that's what Jackie said when I repeated to her that the Receptionist at our office told me that I look like Freddy Krueger when I walked by her this morning.

Um, is that the horror guy that had his face lit on fire? Maybe, I don't really know who Freddy is? But, I am assuming one of us is a little off.

The Receptionist likes me. At least she claims to. (So, what if it's a direct result of the fact that I often bribe her with bagels). I can only imagine what she'd say if she DIDN'T like me.

Just another day at the office...

I AM working on a real post and I have been for about a month, just waiting to have more than 15 minutes to finish it.

Lately, I have been so overwhelmed with work that I tend to get easily irked.

So, today I decided to take a moment or two and express my gratitude for a few things.

I am super glad I live in California.

I mean, no matter how crappy my day has been here, it could always be worse...

I could live in Arizona (116 degrees?!?! You've got to be kidding me!)


Virginia... oh the distruction....
