That is hard to imagine... that such a lovely blossom could ever be more beautiful.

From that picture, she does look like the type who ages well.

Damn those types of people. *shakes an ugly old fist*

I would say it was okay. It was not a nightmare, but there was certainly room for improvement.

This place is so depressing. On a latter note. On both flights to and fro the flight attendants were crazy. It was a late night flight. One sang a lullaby, the other said she forgot the flight number. They were just an odd bunch.

What a great daddy. We've been struggling to wrangle monkeys in the last few weeks. We're all ready for summer vacation...more time to play and not having to worry about homework when it is so nice outside.

With the days being long and sunny here the girls are less and less thrilled to have to go to school... it is still rather bright here at 9:30pm.

Got frustrated with them losing semi disposable containers and they won't eat sandwiches so decided to go with nicer stainless and had a long talk with them about what their lunch kits were worth and how, if they took good care of them that there would be things like hot chai, hot soup, or things like dad's pasta with home made marinara for lunch.

Polish market has lovely fruit concentrates that are cold pressed that make for delicious beverages that have a good vitamin C content and does not cost that much to make.

My secretary never stops talking. She's been at work for 12 minutes (she was 5 minutes late) and shhe's told me about her husband's health, her son is moving out, her daughter is doing something, and something else. Would it be rude to shut the door between our offices mid-sentence?

Walk around with a bluetooth earpiece on when she comes in. Then you can just start talking randomly and she'll think you're on the phone.

Or hand her a big donut as she walks in the door.

The donut sounds like a good idea. For me, not her. Work can wait; I'm going out to breakfast.

Walked out to my car and saw a bunch of people including my boss (I don't work at the main office) standing around waiting for me. It was the christening of our new rescue boat. I didn't let on that I'd forgotten.

Thinking about an offer I should have took up. Things would be so different now. Would have been tough then but the future would be better. It is the only thing I would had changed in my past, and with everything that I've done so far it says a lot. Gahhhhhhh

Today I was informed that I'm "awfully cute". By a guy. And while flattering, I've seen and heard this guy before and I'm fairly certain he's actually insane. I mean, genuinely insane. So from my experience, I attract:

a) VERY obese women
b) Insane men
c) no one else
