My new favorite cartoon


Since I refuse to grow old, I still watch cartoons and I've found a great one on Cartoon Network. It's called Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. My favorite character is Eduardo. He's a big, purply, "scary" guy who wouldn't hurt a fly. And he speaks with a Spanish accent. Who wouldn't love that?! :)

I LOVE (good) CARTOONS!!!

Being Without You

It's been a VERY rough past 3 days. I have been out-of-town for a conference, which means I have been away from Cher's picture for way too long!

However, that's not to say that I haven't been away from Cher too long. Oh no! She's been very faithful at texting me and even while driving! She's quite the skilled texter, that Cher is!

So as to not be completely selfish and keep all the wonder that is Cher to myself, I will be posting some of her messages to me. This way, it's as if EVERYONE won her contest and not just me. That is my little gift to you all. I do hope you enjoy and appreciate it as much as I do!

My life is now complete!

I come home from a hard day at work and what do I find?!?!


This:





(Only Cher would be able to send someone in another country something
with only their name and country on it. She's just THAT amazing!)




After I stopped hugging it, I took a picture of it so as to immortalize the day and time I received not only my first piece of international mail, but my first piece of Cher!




I carefully opened the envelope and removed its contents. At first I thought I got just two sheets of cardboard, but as I moved one of them, I found these inside!








I was SO excited to see the picture of my idol!! Then, I realized that she took even MORE time out of her hectic life to write ME a love note!



What a terrific person she is. So selfless and giving. No wonder she's my idol!

I have to go worsh...uh I mean frame my picture!

Is it drafty in here?

Next Sunday is the BIG fantasy football draft and I need some players.

Tell me who I should draft.

But first, tell me who I should keep out of my players from last year:
  1. Indy Colts Quarterback
  2. Travis Henry - DENVER RB
  3. Santana Moss - WASHINGTON WR
  4. Mushin Muhammad CHICAGO WR
  5. Cincy Bengals Placekicker
  6. New England Patriots Defense
Now, I need to keep 3 and I believe my entire team is made up of 12 players. So, please, impart your football knowledge so that I may win the league for the 2nd non-consecutive year!

Don't Try This At Home

So, I was surfing the web and found this site. It is freakin' hilarious! You will never believe what they put into a blender to find out:


Here is a list of a few things they tried:

I am SO mad, I could spit nails!

How do you handle an A**HOLE at work? Someone who thinks he's King S*it when in reality he's just King of the Dips*its!

I am refusing to work with him any longer after today. I refuse to be berated when I didn't do anything wrong. I just didn't do what HE wanted. I didn't just become complacent and submissive when he told me that I shouldn't arrive at or leave from an appointment without him. His reason? It shows that we are a "team." His REAL reason? He just wants to look like the big, bad businessman. He told me "I'm the salesman on this account and that is how I want it."

WHAT?!

I've arrived at appointments before the salesperson in the past and they've never had a problem with it. He just has a problem b/c he was handed this account from the salesman who left, who I really liked working with b/c he actually KNEW his stuff and was intelligent versus this Neanderthal, and the client keeps contacting ME about things instead of him. He doesn't get it that they already KNOW me and NOT him and he hasn't taken ANY opportunities to establish a relationship with them, so who would YOU contact?!

So, this morning, he felt the need to first thing come over and thank me for my assistance yesterday at our meeting and then start in on me about the whole arriving and leaving thing. He said that he was getting irate or irritated...some big word that I don't think he knew the meaning. I wanted to throttle him, personally.

This guy is that guy in school who always said, "Hey, what'd you get for #15 cause I just want to make sure mine is right." When all along, he has NO clue what the answer is. He is also that guy that spins things so EVERYONE else is responsible for the mistakes he makes except himself! He was making it MY fault for our chairs being more expensive than the ones we got this client earlier this year (with the other salesman) just b/c I created the quote in the computer. Now, I TOLD him REPEATEDLY to pull the old order for other questions he had, but he never did it. So, when the client pointed out this error to us, he blamed ME b/c I did the quote.

Are you SERIOUS?!?!?

In ANY place of business where there are sales people, THEY are responsible for EVERYTHING with the account. In the end, he should have pulled the old order and compared the two prices to make sure the new ones would be less. But he just assumed that since I did the last design, that I memorized all the prices.

Again...Are you SERIOUS?!?!

Even our President didn't expect me to know all the prices! I've spoken with her about my concerns on this account and the three of us sat down. Of course, he spun things and just made things up that had no foundation in truth. He said I was setting appointments with them and e-mailing back and forth with them so he didn't know what was going on. I promptly clarified that by saying, "I have NEVER made appointments with them and ANY e-mails that I responded to, I copied you on them so you know everything I know." He didn't have much to say about that.

Now, after today's encounter, he's just going to have to wonder if I'll use the Postal blood that's in me and do what comes naturally! I bet he'll have a hard time sleeping at night!

Oh the Torture

I thought when you won something, it was supposed to be easy to collect it.

Not so when you're talking about selecting a photo of the one, the only, Cher!

Now, she wants me and T.Leach to figure out which photo we want her to scrawl her signature on and send to us.

So, please help me decide! Pop on over to her blog if you've never visited before or if you're a Cheraholic. Check out her mugs and then let me know which one I should choose. I can't decide as I'm the most indecisive person you'll ever meet, I think. Maybe not. I don't know.

The Real Reason I Haven't Been Blogging...

This is as close as I've gotten to getting an autographed picture of Cher.









Needless to say, I'm completely bummed!
