GirlFriday Come Sail Away!

Posted on

I set sail tomorrow on a voyage to Mexico, sun, sea and relaxation.

Wait. Relaxation… how’d that get in there…..gotta go find that definition so I do it right, having not done that before… says this…”The act or process of relaxing, or the state of being relaxed; as, relaxation of the muscles; relaxation of a law.
Remission from attention and effort; indulgence in recreation, diversion, or amusement.” Sounds like fun!

I’ll get excited once I see this…

According to this quote…”If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it. -Herodotus” …though I think it’s a little late for that, I’ll try it anyway, maybe my sanity will come back…oh how I’ve missed it.

I’m looking so forward to not having to worry about dishes, gas, cooking, washing laundry, getting work done. I’m not going to know what to do with myself. Thankfully, Carnival knew that and has many things planned that we can pick from to do…smart people those cruise planners!

Hoping to see lots of this…

Won’t be missing any of this…

For at least five days, this won’t be me…

But be sure, once I return oh the mountains of paperwork that await….oy dios mio!

😉 I’m trying out my spanish…whatya think? I will however have to break my habit of saying thank you in spanish the english way. You know….grassyass….they prolly won’t like that. Will have to practice my Gracias!

Happy Friday all….and do you know what song I’m posting? No?! Oh come on!


I’ve got some wonderful blog posts lined up for you from very talented bloggers. You won’t miss me at all. So all of our regularly scheduled posts, Monday Mojo and Wednesday Fwd, and possibly even GirlFriday next week will be pre-empted by those wonderful guest bloggers.

Happy Friday all, I’m leaving work early today because you know I haven’t even started packing…




Thursday Thoughts Screw McDonalds’ Monopoly

Posted on

Yeah, I said it, I’ve been eating McDonald’s food everytime I end up having to get take out and where has it gotten me? Two mcflurry’s and one breakfast sandwich richer. Yeah I’m bitchin’. Gimme something McDonalds! I’m drinkin’ your coffee for chrissakes! Here’s a clue — it sucks!

So I’m sitting here sipping this ass coffee entering my stupid little codes on their stupid little website and I’m ONE game piece shy on every set there is on the fucking board! Yeah, a monopoly indeed. Pisses me off that I can’t win something decent, and yeah screw off with your coke points, what’s that get me? Clothes for an avatar on some stupid website I want nothing to do with. PLEASE! I’m considering a boycott. After the game is over of course, because you never know, Then you’ll be seein’ this bitch on a permanent vacation.

Now, since I can’t seem to get in a bad mood, and I got this very funny email directed specifically to me as a Disturbed Person, I wanted to share, because all of you are disturbed too. Yes you are.

The following are pictures in this same email that I thought I would share, there are more, but none as funny as the ones I picked for you here. Of course.

And yes, you are disturbed. But so am I and so we’ll share that label.

Today is International Disturbed People’s Day

I don’t care if you lick windows,

take the special bus

or occasionally pee on yourself..

You hang in there sunshine, you’re friggin’ special.

Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you’ll never get back.

Today’s Message of the Day is:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance.

Well I’m off to work, and hopefully dance when I get off. Enjoy yourselves today.
