Workin' for the Weekend

I'm interviewing candidates for a technical position I have available... and after two rounds of interviews, I had placed the applicants in order of preference (in my head). This morning I get to work, and the top candidate... the one I was going to make an offer to, dropped me an email and asked me to withdraw him from the application pool!!!

Had I not gone out last night with Richard, GFR and The Rapper newly known as "W", I wouldn't be so numb. As it is, i'm still suffering from the night at Graham's. Which at the time I didn't know it would be so important... but this morning the pain would be increasingly sharp if I were clear headed and on my toes.

I've responded with an email - kind of digging for more information. If the little booger doesn't email me back this morning, i'm calling him. I want to know why why WHY?

BD Blinkyshit

And here, in "P"s honor, we have lust-inducing wicked, weekend luvin' eye candy for the guys...
(You ARE overcome with lust, right?);)

It might be Sunny Outside

I found the lineup for Discorus 2006 Festival of Rock:

Dropping Daylight, Rikets, Halestorm, Evans Blue, Crossfade, Buckcherry, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown and Seether.

I know I know them... and I'm pretty sure I've seen Halestorm before....

I've been swamped today! I've interviewed three techs for the opening I have in my area and now i'm preparing for tomorrow's interviews. I'm also trying to make a major decision on new chairs for the technicians (maybe some that will hold up under intense abuse and won't dig potholes in the floor when we scoot from one side of the room to the other during our daily chair races). I was also given the grueling task (along with two other coworkers) of researching our phone bill... what we have, what we want, and what we don't need.

Need a nap. lol

BD Blowout

Today is a very exceptional day for several reasons. A long time ago, 8 ½ years to be precise, in a galaxy far far away, “P” impetuously random chatted me on icq and we’ve been inseparable buddies ever since. Though he resides a mere 50 miles away and similarly works for an institution of higher learning, we have somehow managed to never lock eyeballs in person. However, it is a rare week that we don’t IM daily and I cannot imagine my life without him. Funny, witty, sarcastic and an unbelievable blast are just a few words to describe this comrade in arms. He has explored the deepest recesses of my mercurial mind and possesses some serious blackmail fodder. (Don't even think about it, "P"!) Incalcuable are the times he's had me LOLing at my desk as tears ran down my cheeks thanks to some outrageous remark he typed. He also has an uncanny knack of talking me into some of the zaniest, most bizzare internet schemes I wouldn't come up with in a million years. It’s like having a little IM devil on my shoulder whispering in my alarmed ear! And most of the time I DO IT! I suppose I should warn other IM friends that if a typed phrase or astonishing email doesn’t jive with the sweet and mannerly style of the Mz Circe you have come to know and love, it is very likely some fiendishly mischievous banter "P" cooked up and I receptively and willingly agree to parrot. In any event, Happy BD “P” darling and I hope we are still furiously typing back and forth for many eons to come. :)

Discorus: A Festival of Rock is right around the corner!

Seether and Shinedown and a ton more... a full day of rock, baby! I'm counting down the minutes... *counter inserted here*

Heavenly Tears

Greetings gang! On this lovely October morning we are experiencing liquid globs from the sky and though it makes for a dreary view, we are grateful to welcome needed moisture. I will be gone this afternoon so I thought I’d get my precious posting done early, including your Tuesday Sexxy pic. And speaking of sex, or lack thereof…

The’s 5 Rejected Slogans Promoting Abstinence

5> Don't think of it as less sex -- think of it as more time to watch "Babylon 5" reruns.

4> You've come a long way, Baby -- for nothing!

3> Abstinence: No f**kin' way!

2> Spend a little time away from the orifice.

1> "Hello, this is President Clinton with an important message for young people...."

She has a very sparkly er, personality; click at your own risk!

Aries March 21 - April 19
Tomorrow will be the perfect day to curl up in bed with a good book and sob hysterically about how you never properly learned to read.

Wedding Bells Upon Us

I talked to my long lost friend, April, last night. She's in the last few weeks of singledom and even though exhausted and stressed, she's excited about the new beginning. All at the same time she's gotten a promotion at work, closing on a house and moving, and getting married. She needs to get preggers in the midst of all that to top it off :)

I'm really excited for April and Joe and I wish them the very best!

Criminal Sexiness

Here is a glittery message in joyous celebration of Sexy Blinkyshit Week. Er, it would have lent more weight to their kind words had they employed the correct contraction, but I don't (do not) believe we are dealing with rocket scientists OR English majors here....

Oh Happy Monday

Considering how this day started.... it hasn't turned out so bad.

Wait, no... it pretty much started last night when I bit into a Tostito and a fleck of the chip flew into my eye.

I tossed and turned all night long only to awaken 40 minutes after my alarm was to go off. I must have turned it off in my sleep because I know I turned it on when I went to bed... and the clock was right... so I obviously turned it off still asleep. I bailed out of bed and jumped in the shower, making every effort to speed things up so I wouldn't be too late.

Thankfully I had laid my clothes out the night before so I could get out the door quicker. I needed to be at the office quite a bit earlier this morning and every minute counts. I did my hair, makeup, put my clothes on and headed to the kitchen for a glass of water. As I headed to my closet to grab my shoes - so I could leave - I noticed one pantleg was longer than the other. With further investigation, I found the hem was out! It was about 2 inches longer than the other leg. I didn't have time to fix it... so I had to strip down and find something else to wear.

After that was settled, I grabbed my laptop, fritos, and cookies (big office chili cookoff today) and headed out the door. I hopped in the MM and then realized I had left my purse inside. So.... back in the front door I go to track down the purse.

Finally... I was on my way and really not too late!

I get to work and everyone starts bringing in their goods for lunch... my phone rings. One of the girls that brought chili says 'I need to talk to you'. She asks if I will stir her chili for her periodically. Only makes sense because it's all setup right outside my office door. Then she says, in a very quiet voice, 'there is something else. While I was making the chili I noticed I only had one earring in. Can you also watch for the earring'. *my hysterical laugh inserted here* 'I don't know that it's in there, but I am not sure when I lost it. Do you think we should mention it to anyone?'

To that I say *still laughing*... no way! Chances are it's not in there... and if it is and someone finds it just act like you did it on purpose and it was all a big game and announce they won XYZ prize! hahaha

We made it thru lunch and no one found the earring. If they did... and they ate it (which I really doubt it because it was a fairly large hoop)... it will pass. (ouchie!)

Hillside Hilarity

The weather was perfect, the crowds congenial and an abundance of beer flowed effortlessly from the primed spigots as Bud Light, Amber Bock, Rolling Rock, and a flavorful concoction named Pumpkin were offered as brewery choices. Not one to offend a beverages feelings, I sampled three of the four. The pumpkin selection wasn’t half bad and my compadres were in a jovial mood as we reclined on the shady hillside surveying the crowd. (Slippery flipflops—please remember these words as they will play a paramount role later in the story)...

Always spotting familiar acquaintances, I chatted with our lovely cellular rep (Motorola Mishaps) in all her 60s glory. A dear friend's sexy son bumped into me (literally and on purpose) and we exchanged friendly greetings. He later joined me on the knoll and sans current squeeze, privately engaged in a brief tete-a-tete before rejoining his companions. Hmmm, younger men....*sigh*

Toward the end of our pleasant outing, consumption of hops and barley surely played a major part in my lax sartorial judgment in purchasing a white feathered boa to complete my casual jeans and top ensemble. After earlier wolfing down a foot-long Polish sausage with kraut washed down with copious quantities of beer, at the last minute I rashly decided to purchase a sugar-covered, grease-laden funnel cake. Sis and I headed back up the incline to round up the gang and take our leave. Choosing the sexy, black sequined flipflops for footwear came back to haunt me as heading down the treacherous slope, I lost my balance, feathers flying, an explosion of fluffy, powdered sugar shot skyward, and the delectable confection sailed through the air as I unceremoniously tumbled ass over teakettle much to the merriment of the beer ticket ladies. Landing flat on my face, I quickly sprang to my feet as “K” promptly recovered the dessert (2 second rule applied) completely intact. Though physically unhurt, I could not say the same for my injured dignity (or as much dignity as one can muster clad in a flirtatious, girlish, fuzzy boa) which suffered serious damage as I dusted myself off and headed for the gate. We all laughed about it the entire way home as I relived my embarrassing, clown-like antics. I only wish I had thought to curtsy and wave to the stunned crowd. I promise you this will be one Oktoberfest I’ll never forget. :)
