A staff member brought in rum balls and, I have to say, these were the rummiest rum balls ever.  Between that shot rumball and winning $25 from a randomly bought lotto ticket this morning, things are looking okay for today.

I am not going back for a second rumball for fear of falling asleep at my desk.

I say, again, I hate insomnia so much.  And the weird dreams that I get when I finally do fall asleep at 5 am.

Now to force my way through morning Baltimore traffic to get to the conference - it looks like I'm really going to enjoy myself in the next two days.  Alsoalso, I have a date on Friday night so once I get done with the conference, I'll be off to that.  He'll get to see me in work clothes but at least I picked the cute work clothes.

...yeah, I'm about to head out with no details on that because I'm a MEANIE. :D

I can't believe I forgot my lunch on the dining room table this morning. *sigh*

First, I wanted to thank everyone for their support and wishes over the last two weeks.  Life kind of sucked for a bit but you guys always come through.  And I got my mommy. :D  Thanks for the comments and emails - y'all rock.


My subconscious needs to go jump off a cliff.  I've been having pretty disturbing dreams and nightmares the last few nights.  Normally when I have nightmares, they're things that play off my weird brain issues.  I mean, I had those as well (I dreamt I was at my birthday dinner with half family and half friends and I got frustrated with not being able to order what I want and by the time I did, I was in tears and everyone left ...yeah.) but the others?  Damn.

One night I dreamt that I was a cop but I was carting around the soul of a serial killer - it was hotly debated about how I got it.  Either he attempted to kill me - and I saw that.  Nothing like watching someone gut me.  Or I killed him so I could then become a killer as well.  The gutting scenes, TWO of them, were very visiual and it only got worse.  When my personality switched over to his, it was a very physical reaction.  Bones breaking, muscles ripping, blood everywhere...

And I wish I could write as well as I want to because I don't have the words to say how freaky that actually was.


Work is apparently attempting to kill me.  This should surprise no one.


I seem to be still pretty stretched thin and I'm not quite sure how to unthin myself.


I have a giant monkey, my mom is visiting soon, my roommates are great, my friends are awesome and I'm the maid of honor in a good friends wedding.  Things could be much worse.

Thanks to a vendor sending us stuff, I just had a cupcake for breakfast.  The cupcakes came care of Cupcake Heaven and I can say I highly approve of these 'cupcake only' bakeries.  Ngggh, it was just a regular 'chocolate' cupcake, with white/vanilla cake and fluffy chocolate on top but.  Damn.

I actually had to just eat half the frosting before I could even bite down into the cupcake.  I know, I have a hard life right now.

Away, away

I'll be down in the Hampton Roads area this weekend since I didn't see my sister over Thanksgiving.  Since I came in late today, due to insomnia last night, I'm working until 7 and then leaving to go straight down there.  At least work will be quiet for the last two hours that I'm here.

Oh yeah

Happy 4 year anniversary at AFP to me.

Nothing like circling the parking lot because there are no spots to make one late to work.  I decided to cut my losses, go back home for 20 minutes, and then grab one of the reserved spots that pop open at 10.  There were an unusual number of parking police circling the lots as well or else I would have grabbed one before hand.

But in better news, guess what?  They elected Peter Petrelli as President!

...oh, wait, hang on - wrong universe.  ;)  Seriously, I'm incredibly excited that the person I voted for is now president elect.  He's not a perfect man and I certainly don't agree with all of his views and stances.  I don't expect miracles - the country has been on a downhill slide for a few years in terms of economy, etc. and it's going to take some hard work to get us back to where we were at.

But it's a new day and yesterday was a historical one at that.  And I thought McCain's speech was very gracious and I'm incredibly pleased that he didn't pull out the lawyers - stepping back around 10 pm instead of waiting until the very last minute made me happy since I found out before I went to bed.  Despite Florida's apparently best efforts at still trying to confuse their voters (connect the dots?  What?)...

It's going to be an interesting four years and my hat is off to the Redskins for losing and making this all possible.  ;)

In the meantime, Petrelli/Palmer 2012!

Left work early.  Trying not to die.

We're trying out a new coffee/tea vendor at work and all I have to say is YES, PLEASE, KEEP.  For one thing, I'm highly amused at the whole one serving, do it yourself thing.  For the other, it actually makes a decently good cup of tea.  ...and I'm amused by the little one packet things you get to play with.

Currently we're using these awful, huge coffee makers with a hot water spout for tea.  This one is much faster (and cuter looking!  Well, it is.) and better tasting, as a whole, than what came out of those horrid machines.

...I should, however, refrain from having a lot of tea just because it's there.  It still has caffeine in it and on Wednesday, I'd had so much I thought I was going to vibrate through space and time itself.

It took me nearly two hours to get home tonight - it took nearly 50 minutes to go all of 4 stops on the metro.  I'm...very drained right now and have lost my sense of humor/mood/everything that isn't a lump somewhere on the damned metro.

I'm just going to sit here for a moment and stop being miserable.

Quick, easy steps on how to make a Jen have a near hissy fit at work.

Step one, take your Jen out of the wilds of the modern work place and put her to work doing the tedious task of member cards.  Now, best take care because member cards are wily and hate being in order - but, of course as any well trained Jen and member card hunter knows, they have to be in order.

Step two, trick her into thinking this process of doing over 1000 cards has gone smoothly.  See the Jen dance, dance, Jen, dance.

Step three, consider your trick complete when you watch the Jen box up the cards for delivery.  Well done, you.

Step four, have the Jen wander back to the printer and, to her horror, discover that during the printing process someone decided to be "helpful" and moved a stack of those cards from the printer to some hidey hole next to it.  Step far, far away from the Jen at this point because things could get nasty.  If necessary, remember there is no shame in running as long as you run fast.

Step five, watch with wonder as the Jen is forced to open the box like some crazed animal and then flip through the labels and over a thousand cards in order to figure out exactly.  Where.  It.  Goes.

Step six, have her realize she has to be at her desk until 6 because she was doing the late shift tonight.  Laugh at the Jen when she realizes she will be stuck for much longer than anticipated at work, probably well until 6:30 or longer.

(Disclaimer: Messing with the Jen in this way has some safety issues.  We are not responsible for loss of life, limb or naughty bits while in the process of the taunting.  If injured, seek immediate medical attention at the doctor of your choice.  Proceed with caution and if the Jen turns on you, the only things that we can legally offer you are our condolences.)

There is a very, very good chance that I'll be working late tonight.  My cut off point is 8, 9 at the very latest and only if I really want to get off work super early on Friday.  I'm going totally mad.  And even when I leave work, I still have to go to the grocery store.  So there's a very good chance I won't be online tonight, I have to be in bed early considering I'm only running on two hours of very ragged sleep.

(I've got Ambien filled today and I'm not afraid to use it.)

Seriously frazzled and it gets worse because I know things aren't going to be calming down here at all soon.  Almost conference time.

Kill.  Me.  Now.
