You know you are getting old, when instead of dreading the end of summer and the start of school, you actually look foreward to it. When I was a kid I used to hate the fact that my birthday always fell so close to the start of the school season. (Well that and the fact that it was right in the middle of combining (harvest), so there was no time for parties or anything like that). Warren of course is about as enthusiastic as a turkey for thanksgiving.

If I needed any more proof that my job sucks, I got it this week/weekend. We have a bunch of suits and ties comming thru on Monday for a tour and other dog and pony activities. Because this is our chance to show off our call center, naturally they have all the higher-ups in a stresss induced state of panic. And in an attempt to show what a bunch of happy little corporate drones we are, they have gone thru and cleaned all the cubes. I don't mean straighten up and dust clean, but as in: "Please remove any traces of evidence that might show you are an individual, and not a clone". I realize that we share cubes, and we can't all have them our ways, however most people tend to migrate to the same cube, and we have always had a few individual touches (ie small pictures, momentos, chatzckes).No one has ever had a problem with it. I cooperated, but grudgingly. Of course I did change all the color settings on my computer to make them very individual. And I also decided that tonight was a good night, to finally color my hair again. I can't afford a professional job, but I've always done a very good amatuer job. Rebellion thy name is Cranky. I'll dress appropriate in business casual clothes, but I'm also seriously considering a blue or green streak, just a small one. Just for kicks, if nothing else than to see what reaction I get. But I probably won't go that far. Only because these are the type of people who probably would have a fit. Welcome to Stepford, would you like some Gingko with your COQ10?

In other news. I can't wait to see what my hair looks like when it is dry. I went with my usual medium reddish brown color, but I decided to go with a slightly different shade this time. I've done Rosewood, Mahogony, Cinnamon, and Persimmon. This time I decided to go with Sangria 56. So far what I've seen that's dried I like. I should have been a red head. (Well auburn anyway). If for no other reason than to shut up the people who take one look at Warren than another look at me, and start asking who Warren takes afters, and gee he must look like his dad huh. Actually the Red hair maybe from his Dad's side, but beyond that he looks much more like my side of the family. (Except when he is mad, than he is all Mike's son.)

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.
