Out of Nowhere

I don’t know if the moon and stars are in the proper position or if my feminine feelings are in overdrive, but I got into remembering how my current job was predicted by a fortune teller at a company Christmas party.

A Christmas party!

It was last year; we had it at this wonderful restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The food was plenty, the liquor was flowing and the dice was rolling (yes, dice; we had gambling tables at our party; what did you expect, this is New Orleans; Laissez le bon temps roulez and all that!). I'm not sure whose idea it was, or who had the connections to these intriguingly delightful seers into what was yet to come (and sometimes past), but we had about a total of four palm readers and tarot card readers.

Of course I had to have my future read!!

I first grabbed a palm reader. No one was at her table, and I knew from past parties that everyone loved to join in on the fun. In other words, long lines to come! She told me stuff past palm readers said: so n so many* kids in your life, you are a blah blah* person with blah-blah* qualities, and so on and so on. [Editor’s note: Me got bad memory, so I kinda don’t remember the exact specifics.] It was fun. Enjoyable. Ticklish.

Later that evening I found the palm reader and got ready to wait in line!! (Like I said, later that evening; She was found, and a ten-minute wait ensued. Yay.) My turn finally came. Yay! I sat down, we exchanged quick pleasantries, and she proceeded to as me to pick a card. Than another card. Than another. And another. And than…another! She looked this and that and examined them. She hmmmed and hummed, and than, she spoke! I honestly can’t remember most of what she said, except for two things. First, she said that (this) year I would find love. I think. Or she said I’d marry. I’m not sure. I think it was find. Damn my bad memory. But who cares about that. : D

The other thing she said was referring to my future employment. She told me that sometime next year a job offer would be presented to me out of nowhere. That was it. Her advice was absolutely zippo. She said that she doesn’t want to give me any more info because it was my life, and I need to make my own decisions. Ok. I could deal with that. My life, my choice, but my life (and probably some choices I make) will lead to a job offer. Cool!!

Forward to the future. Now, only about three n\months ago that job offer came. Out of nowhere, like was predicted. You see, the company I work for bought out another company that went down he hole. They had plans to bring that company back to its glory days with them in control. One of the managers saw me in action, loved my skills, and wanted me for the newborn company. Next thing, I’ve got a new job (and new pay!!). Out of nowhere.


First Annual Take a Bath Day

On Monday, May 30, 2005, most Americans around the entire nation shall be observing Memorial Day. Though this year, I suggest another option: Take a Bath.

I just did, and it was marvelous! Not your usual, water in, body in, wash, rinse, out and drain type of bath, but the type in which time stood still.

In which the water was hot enough to boil lobsters in.

In which the amount of foam bath sop used could've cleaned an entire orphanage for an entire year.

In which loved ones were afriad I drowned because I was in the bath that long.

In which the Foo Fighters serenaded their ever so lovely tunes to me while I drifted off into oblivion (and yet avoided that dreaded drowning!!!).

It was a well deserved bath. My muscles no longer ache. The stress that was there is--dare I say!--gone! (Though maybe I shouldn't have had the temperature around boiling point--I almost couldn't get out the bath do do being overheated...oops!)

But every one join together--not literally now--and go take a bath! Skip the shower for just one evening/morning and relax your troubles away in about 2.5 feet of warm to hot water--depending on your preferences.

Celebrate the First Annual Take a Bath Day!!


Ix-nay on the igpay atinlay

I don't know pig latin. That bugs me. I should. I remember as a kid all my friends were using it with the greatest of ease while I stared on like a dumb and mute fool. One of my fav books, Y: The Last Man had it in a scene, and it drove me bonkers on what-the-heck they were saying:

355: "Hidigey, idigallidigisdigon! Zidigip idigit!"

Dr. Mann: "Didigont yidgou tidigell midige whidigat tidigo didigo!"

Yorick: "Don't mind them. They do this all the time. I think it's chinese."

[Stranger]: "All right, now I know you're a dude. That's gibberish, it's like pig latin only girls know how to speak. Never heard anybody do it that fast though."

I'm not a "dude" (at least to my knowledge...), any help? I am willing to be educated in the ways of pig latin!

I haven't written in awhile. Don't got nothing to say. Bet you figured that out already. Have a nice day!


Damn...these are really addictive

Yet another quiz. It was fun!

You Are 45% Left Brained, 55% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.

Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.

If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.

Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.

Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.

If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.

Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

A test for...YOU!

So which one fits me the best? I took a quiz, got 3 results--all in their "fits you best" order--though I'm curious to see what my friends think. Which one do you think describes me...come on, let's have a little fun!!

...yes agian, and also with a deadline!

May 23, 2005 to be exact. My baby cousin shall be a graduating from Highschool. He's a bright kid who's incredibly musically talented who's heading off to college toward the end of the year with his parents not having to worry about a penny! I love the boy!

Anyway, the help comes in the form of a question: What do you wish you knew or wish somebody told you after you graduated from highschool? Or, what advice would you give those kids who, well, need it.

Was it you wish you knew that aluminum doesn't bode well in the microwave? Do you wish someone told you that there are certain things the toilet will not take? Should someone have warned you about the dangers of credit cards?

Please share with me what-ever they are and no matter how many!! I'm putting togethera info card for him and I want what-ever comes to mind...even if my audience is only the total of 5, I want to hear from all of you!!

Thanks in advice!

PS Thanks to evryone who helped with the gagaku dilemna; you know who you are and I'll let you know just how much your help, um, helped as soon as my grades are posted!


I Love Serendipity's

"Hey, I'm going too! I'll be there Friday! And as for what I would see if I were going to NYC - well, my baby cousin! And Serendipity" Post response from Stacey about my future trip to New York

Serendipity! Serendipity! Oh how I love thee, let me count the ways! *sigh*

Serendipity Three is the greatest place (so far) that I've been to in NY. It's this totally awesome, absolutely fabulous, gotta stop there if you go restaurant in Manhatten. They have these excellente' desserts, specifically the Frozen Hot Chocalate which is exactly what it sounds like. A frozen hot chocalate.

I know what you're thinking, "How can that be?! A frozen, hot chocolate?!". But it is, and it's great and I love it and would marry it if I could, because it is that great and you must go to New York and have it, try it, fall in love with it!!


New York, New York...

I'm going back to New York City! I'm going back to New York City! Yay! I so can't wait! Everything is set...well, plane tix and accomadations, the two big things that matter. I'll be checking on out on June 9th and so can't wait!

What would you go see if you were going to New York? What would you go back to see or have to se if you were going back to New York? I don't even know, but I better start thinking about it...I only got i month til and 3 whole days when I do get to NYC. But that's ok...I guess; cause I'm going back to New York City!
