I was so filled up with what I did Saturday and worrying about Fred's broken arm that I completely forgot to tell you what happend on Sunday. I mean besides the usual going to church (it was just Em, Tigger and me, Gwen and Stitch fighting over who got to stay home with Fred) and D going to Regional that normally happens. Em sent the boys to walk the Sierra Trail, she wanted them out of the house so she could clean and Gwen was upstairs in her room. It got real quiet so I went upstairs and Em had left. Gwen was standing in the living room, which meant I was trapped. She immediately starts asking if I want to do something, which I didn't, I wanted to go back downstairs. But I got talked into Wii bowling. We played 3 games and I won two of them, not only that, but I now have more skill points then Gwen. Which annoys her since she has been playing longer then me. But that makes me the Wii Bowling Champion of the house!
I also have come up with reasons Wii bowling is better then real bowling. (1) You don't have to rent shoes, you can bowl in your purple crocs with the fuzzy lining, (2) You don't have to leave your house, which means in addition to wearing your purple crocs with the fuzzy lining, you can also bowl in your pajamas, (3) you don't have to walk up and down the bowling ally looking for the right size bowling ball, (4) {but no. 1 for me} you don't have to worry about ruining your manicure that you paid $xx for.


LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — California corrections officials released an updated prison photograph of Charles Manson on Wednesday, showing the balding and graying 74-year-old, complete with his iconic forehead swastika.
A new photo of Charles Manson shows his graying beard and his legendary swastika tattooed into his forehead.
Ohhhh, still scary after 40 years!

>Made it to work


I was late, but since I am normally early, my boss didn't say anything, I actually saw him on the subway at GCT.
The worst part of the commute was walking, across the MetroNorth parking lot at home, where I almost missed the train since I refuse to run, then from the subway to my office. No snow drifts, but the snow was packed solid and frozen so I had to pick my way over it without falling. Then as I was crossing Jackson St, the glare from the sun shining in my eyes was so great I couldn't even see the lines for the crosswalk, it didn't help they were covered with ice and snow. The parking lot at work actually had an ice free path. Someone must have been working hard yesterday.

>Once again


Once again, I promised myself I would get up when my alarm went off.
Once again, I stayed up too late (this time I was reading The Devil's Feathers)
Once again, I was rushing around throwing on clothes and slapping on foundation and blush (this cold has drained all color from my face. With the exception of my nasal mucus, it is now a icky green)

>Clean Linens


Washed my sheets and blankets yesterday when I was home. Last night it was so nice to snuggle under blankies smelling like detergent and fabric softener, except, Em buys the Free and Clear so they only smelled like dryer sheets. Still, they were soft and clean, that is really all I wanted.
Today I headed back to work wearing my new NYC hat. Yes it is still February in New York so it is still cold and hats are needed, I even had to put my hood up while walking to my office from the subway. I also wrapped my scarf around my hands 'cause my gloves were in my bag. I made a stop at RiteAid on the way in. So here I am at my desk with my anti-viral Kleenex®, Imodium A-D®, and Halls®, I should have no problem making it to 4:30 p.m. 

>Barbara Stanwyck

You scored 40% grit, 24% wit, 38% flair, and 17% class!

You’re a tough dame, a bit of a spitfire, and you can even be a little dangerous, but you do it with such flair that almost all is forgiven (and even when it’s not, you’re still the most interesting woman in the room). You can be witty and charming, all right, but you have a tough streak that keeps you focused and sometimes deadly. You’ve had quite a climb to get where you are, but you’re a hard worker and you mostly deserve all you get…and then some. You might end up destroying everything around you, but you must admit…you’ve got style. Your leading men include Henry Fonda, Fred MacMurray, and when you forget yourself, Gary Cooper.

>More icky weather


I know you are probably tired of hearing of the weather and how it is effecting my commute but that is all I really have to talk about. Since this is a blog I know you can just go elswhwre if you are bored.
If I got to bed at a reasonable time I would be able to get up and get dressed and clean the ice and snow off my car and make my train. I keep hoping that if I keep saying it I will eventially do it. I was not late, but I really don't like the express although I did get to sit in a two-seater and face forward. On the message boards I refered to the weather as the three evil sisters. Snow, ice, and freezing rain. By the time I got to work I was chilled, I did remember to get some lunch so I wouldn't have to go out in the  freezing rain, a frozen thing that didn't nuke well. That is the problem when you share a microwave, sometimes you can't put something back in if it is not heated all the way through like this was. Other than that, I kind of liked it. It was 6 points, which is more than I usually have for lunch but I really should eat more at lunch time. It must have had a lot of sodium in it, I am really thirsty now.
Well, I am off to drink some water and do some work.

>Leaky Pipes – Factoid

>Did you know each day approximately six billion gallons of treated drinking water are “lost” primarily due to system leaks throughout the United States? This is approximately 14% of the nation’s total daily water production. (Reported by American Society of Civil Engineers)

>and it was going to say I probably shouldn’t be sending an e-mail to my BLOG when I am mad enough to KILL someone, but who else can I talk to when I have a homicidal urge? I don’t think most people would understand. In fact I think they would try to TALK ME OUT OF IT, when I don’t want to be talked out of it. However, I went for a walk and now I don’t feel like killing anyone, in fact I have kind of a sick headache now.
