The problem with stepping out of blogland is that I’m still thinking. Yah, thinking. So, when I come back to blogland I need to offload these thoughts. So, here are my thoughts from yesterday afternoon through today:
mini Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, num!
it comes with its own shovel! (between the lid and a secondary lid over the ice cream itself)
this pic shows scale – I was instructed to grab a larger spoon since the shovel doesn’t work so well
This one is for Jürgen’s mom. Hug-A-Bear was given to me by my father when I was 5. During our life together Huggy’s head and ear have been ripped off several times in tugs-of-war between me and my brother. To this day Huggy still makes me feel safe and warm and happy.
The Microsoft Man was 45 minutes late. Some flippant comment about not being able to find us. But, when I looked up at his face he bore a striking resemblance to a younger Tim Robbins (dreamy), and his voice was a dead ringer.
How am I supposed to be mad at Tim? Sure, he was chewing gum, and talking like a good ole boy, but that just made me more intrigued by him. I listened to every word he had to say, since he was sitting directly next to me. I asked him a question, and it was like a slow motion event. I watched him watch me ask the question. I know words were coming out of my mouth, I heard them, but he just stared at me. Then, someone asked another question and I composed myself, waiting for that question to be answered, and I cut back in to ask my question and he talked to me, he actually talked to me!! *swoon* We finally broke for lunch, then after lunch was the technical discussion so the room basically emptied out except three of us plus The Microsoft Tim Robbins. So, rather than feeling awkward and continuing to sit next to him I sat across from him. Much better, then I could just look up and get a dose of eye candy, thank you very much. I felt much more comfortable commenting and asking questions for the rest of the discussion.
Okay, enough babbling about how I have the hots for MSTR. The point of my post is that I’ve seen other people in life who look so much like a celebrity that I fantasize that these are really the celebrities doing research for a part or, even better, take a day job when they’re between projects. I once had a phlebotomist who looked exactly like Natasha Lyonne. I almost told her, but she was about to poke me with a needle to take my blood, so I really didn’t want to distract her from that. I also once had the pleasure of being served by a Lisa Loeb look-alike at a local high-end restaurant. I’m sure I’ve seen more celebrity look-alikes in my daily grind, just don’t remember them all. I do, however, remember every time I’ve met a real celebrity.
As you can see I did not hit the delete button. I was actually at that ballgame last night, so it cheered me up. Today I am at an all day training with Microsoft. They’re not here yet, surprise surprise. Please come save me if you don’t hear from me this evening. Also stepping out of the training to get my bottom braces. W00t? I am so liking this braces in my 30s thing… (C’mon Jenna and MaMa!!) See y’all later.
I’m stepping out of blogland for the rest of this day. I’m really pissed. And, if I pay any more attention to this beast I’ll be self destructive and delete the whole thing. Wouldn’t that suck if all your favorite bloggers just went fou and deleted their blogs on the same day, dropped out of blogland, never to return? Creepy.
Anyway, I shall return when I am no longer annoyed at people for having a difference of opinion.
*sigh* I’m supposed to go to a ballgame tonight but it just started raining. Could someone call the weather fairy and politely ask her to cease and desist this very moment so that my 7pm ballgame isn’t cancelled? Oh, I’m sad. Sad, sad, sad. I wanted to take pictures with my camera! Especially one of my friend M with his honkin’ camera lens attached to his camera because he looks silly when he wears it around his neck.
PS – Why is it cease and desist? Desist means cease. Whatever…
