Tape note on work items:

My dentist says I'm not contagious anymore

Now is a really bad time to try giving up caffiene again

Find out what body snatcher replaced son last night and make arrangements to have him stay permamently. (Son was in good mood, did homework expediently without whining, and didn't need me to nag, then went to bed without being told. **klunk**)

When shoveling driveway at 6:30am and it is 14F outside, taking shower afterwards, it is a good idea to take shower afterwards not before. Nothing makes a bad fashion statement like frozen hair.

Houses are not yet self cleaning. Using ass to hold couch down while watching free HBO/Cinemax will not change this unfortunate fact.

Taking chamomile to calm nerves while drinking caffiene on a day you are already exhausted and stressed can have a very weird effect.

Make mental note of recipe for mashed sweet potatos. Even though it was made up on the fly, son loves it and thinks it tastes like pumpkin pie filling. (ingredients: cooked sweet pototates, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a splash of skim milk)

Thank Cable company again for free HBO, seeing George Clooney's (naked)ass at 7am, definately improved the rest of my day. (Solaris is a good, if not weird, movie by the way)

Must have more patience with people too dumb to realize how stupid they are: case in point women mad that we want her to pay for order she never recieved. Reason she never rec'd order: because the electronic check she gave us did a inperonantion of a ping pong ball, then gave a credit card that came back as reported to fraud, and cust has history of check problems with us Yet she is upset that WE are going to ruin HER credit. oye-vay!!

Watching SW DVD's may not solve all your problems, but is a great way to unwind after a stressful day of dealing with imbeciles, slow people, and idiots who drop an order in the mail on 11/30 and then call on 12/10 wondering why they haven't rec'd a pkg.

Stop feeding offspring so much, at his current rate of growth (1/2 inch per month) he will be taller than his dad in a very few short years. IT is very hard to discipline somebody when you have to look up to yell at them.

No matter how stupid or annoying the customer, management highly frowns on calling them doodey-heads. You can however laugh behind thier backs in the breakroom all you want, as management agrees they are doodey-heads, but would still like thier money.

Friday is a cause for celebration!!

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
