This and That Moanday!

Hi Guys! So I just want to say sorry I disappeared again for a while.  I was busy and tired.  We had our big industry convention last week.  All I can say about that is that standing still for 3 hours working the company trade show booth can cripple you.  I would much rather walk 6 hours than that.  I do like gabbing at people.  It is funny because it always surprises my co-workers.  I work with a computer all day with my office door closed.  I think my co-workers assume I have a shy retiring personality as a result.  When I go to the trade show I am waving at people and saying “Hey!  You look lost.  Can I help!”.  The co-workers are always shocked.  The truth is that I am shy and retiring but, I do know how to act the part of booth babe.  I do a pretty good class clown and if I must I can fake intellectual acuity as well.

Grouchy-Poo

Well I have been tired and sore and grouchy and generally no fun to be around lately.  All because I am having trouble with a project I am working on as part of my job.  I said I would have the project completed on Friday and well if there is one thing I am good at it is finishing projects like this one.  I banged away on it all weekend and yes I had some success but it isn’t done.  I feel like saying to this computer program “Do you know who I am and how talented I am and how smart I am?”  It really sucks having an argument with a computer.  Its answer to everything is Beep 32 errors, Beep 12 errors and Beep 63 errors!  Now I have had a tick in my cheek that keeps on twitching.

Moanday November 19, 2012

Oh No!! Moanday again and I have nothing!  Well that’s not true.  I have numerous brilliant thoughts that were so earth shattering I didn’t need to write them down.  Oops! Gone!  I have the usually assortment of half-baked, half-finished, half-a##ed articles that need editing.  Hopefully some of that will happen this week. Basically this month it has been “Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho. It’s off to work I go”.  Love that song actually I have the album from Snow White.  Love “The Washing Song” ’cause the dwarves make disgusting sounds when they wash.

Moanday Link Storm Nov. 12

It’s Moanday!!  I was enjoying the wonderful weather we are having, but then I was called into work early and missed a meet up with a friend and then the worst!! DUM! Dumb! DUMB!  I ate chocolate!  Why do I do this?  I can’t digest chocolate!  How many times do I need to learn this lesson?  UGH!  Yeah I poured two cups of coffee on top of that chocolate just to be certain I would feel sick! I am going direct you fine people to some lovely infographics over at Greatist.com while I deal with the results of my foolishness.

Monday not Moanday!

So hopefully I am feeling pretty good about myself this morning.  I am in the pool swimming and getting splashed in the face!  Hmmm! I’m not going to moan this morning mostly because that usually involves me providing you with a Link Storm and I have nothing!  I have a bunch of half finished articles, lots of great pictures and no links. Cyberspace is letting me down! Well we did have our first frost this weekend and that can mean only one thing.  Time to decorate for Halloween!  Uhm for everybody else!  I need to do some shopping my old decorations are past their prime and my lights don’t work anymore. Oh and kids it really sucks when I buy you $100 worth of gummy bears which I hate and you don’t show up.  That stuff is hard as a rock if you try to save it for the next year.  I’ve tried!  What is the deal with being over-run one year and then no takers the next?

Miserable Moanday!

Bah Humbug!  I am sick with a cold.  I bought about $40 worth of fancy packages that the pharmacist recommended.  They say they will relive all my woes plus a long list of ailments I don’t have.  Hmm!  Nope not so far!  Stop working in the sore throat I don’t have and get to the dripping nose.  I have rubbed much of my nose and upper lip off from blowing.  I looked for the moisturizing wipes but they didn’t have any.  Maybe I should have picked up a box of baby wipes and used that.  Yeah, It’s true, you really don’t want to know me when I am sick!  I am a whiner! Well at least the cat is happy to see me.  He and I have been napping together since yesterday.  It’s a real lazy bones love fest here!

Mooday Link Storm Oct 1 2012

Hey it’s Mooday not Moanday ‘cause I’m drinking my milk.  I know milk was designed to make little baby cows into monster heffers as fast as possible.  The thing is there is one thing my tummy always gets along with and that is milk so it is my go to breakfast drink as morning is the time my stomach is its most grumbly!  Anyway don’t let me waste your day gabbing about my various ailments.  It’s sunny here are the air is fresh so when you can get outside today and enjoy. Today I am bringing to you the best of Fitboggin 12.  I didn’t attend as I am new to this blogging thing and I don’t usually know what’s going on until it is over.  Kind of like air shows.  You never find out there is one until some massive bomber buzzes by your house.  I guess they don’t buzz more of a rumble! Here is a write up of what happened at the “When you Have a Lot to Lose” talk.  I am addicted to people’s success stories and struggles so I enjoyed this article. There was a great group participation talk on Self Acceptance.  The hosts passed … Continue reading

Moanday Link Storm Sept. 24, 2012

Today’s Moanday Link Storm is all about Spinning … like indoor on a bike, not out of control or the spinning backfist (It’s an MMA fighting move which I learned about researching this article, so just don’t mess with me!) It’s Fall now which is the absolute best time to ride your bike outside … OOPS!  Inside, outside, upside-down, stationary … we’re talking about pumping your legs hard while sitting on the most uncomfortable seat you are ever likely to find! So take yourself inside during this lovely weather and enjoy a spinning class.  You won’t regret it.  Uhm, I won’t be joining you.  Achilles Tendonitis and well I have a blister and then there are those seats.   I have a pdf file from the North Shore YMCA called Keep It Safe that is a great start to spinning.  It’s well done, not boring at all, not like most articles that are good for you!
