If I had any sort of imaging software here at work, I would be able to erase the link out of the pics. Oh well. I still love this gnome!

Okay, just for future reference, in case anyone was wondering, no matter how hard you try to imagine it, a banana just does not taste ANYTHING like a Snickers. And that's a sad sad thing.

Ah, Monday. It's so hard to get up and get moving after being so lazy all weekend. Although I did get some things accomplished that I've been meaning to do. I was handy-girl extraordinaire. I finally got the guest bathroom in order by hanging up the towel bars and tp holder thingy. I was very proud of myself and my power drill. I love that thing. So I did that and also started to paint the kitchen. It was a sort of test-wall, to see if we would like the color or not. I think it's going to work out. But now we just have a kitchen that's only half-painted. Maybe dave will surprise me and finish it up sometime this week. Ha. But you never know.
Today is dave's 29th birthday. We're getting old! That's almost 30! That's okay though, I still have another 2 years..ha ha. I don't think I'll have a big problem turning 30..I will probably at least be pregnant by then, if I don't already have a kid. That was one of the things that was freaking me out for a while before I got engaged. I wanted to at least start having kids by 30, so I think that one is going to work out. Now if only I could get the job situation under control, or not work at all, that would be grand.
Ah, one day.

I felt the need to repost this one from way back in October, with a few modifications:

Things Shannon Hates:

#1: People who cross the street against the light. This is not how we use crosswalks people! Wait for the little walking man, and you won't get killed. By me.

#2: Slow elevators. I'd rather not spend any more time than necessary in a metal box. Thank you.

#3: Fire drills. We're adults. If there's an emergency, I think we can find our way out of the building. Unless you're stupid.

#4: Stupid people. Enough said.

#5: Pan-handlers. If I don't know you, I'm not going to give you money just because you're dirty and say you need it.

#6: Soap Operas. Show me a real person named Blade who was once married to a transvestite that gave birth to triplets that are not Blade's children but are from a brief liaison with an Italian Mafia boss who wants them back and wants to kill Blade's sister because he also had a brief liaison with her while dallying with her cousin at the same time. (Copyright 2004)

#7: Pop Ups. Does anyone really believe that they're just won a $50 gift card to Wal-Mart? I mean, who falls for that crap?

#8: People who stand waiting directly in front of closed elevator doors. Do you really need to be that close? You have to be the first one on the elevator? People seem to have forgotten simple elevator etiquette. No matter what kind of rush you're in, you need to wait until everyone that's getting off of the elevator has gotten off, before attempting to get on yourself. DO NOT push and shove your way past the stunned people trying to get off the elevator just to get on. Wait your turn. (Yes, I've seen it happen)

To be continued...

Things Shannon hates #9:
When you're walking behind two chatting friends headed toward an escalator, when all of a sudden these two people, oblivious to anything but their conversation about jobs and whatnot, come to a complete standstill in front of the escalator, apparently waiting for the perfect step to come along. Now, I can understand this happening with people who are getting on in years as they may be unsure of their footing, and little frightened of these newfangled moving staircases, but for a pair of sure-footed thirty-somethings, I have no sympathy. As you're walking, you simply step onto the escalator, without breaking stride. It's not that difficult.

Thank You.

I hate sinuses. I wonder if it would be possible to just fill them up and keep them that way permanently, that way you wouldn't have to worry about them draining, and the whole post-nasal drip thing. I'm not in the medical field, which should be fairly obvious from that last statement. I know nothing about sinuses other than that right now they're pissing me off. I don't need headaches, I don't need congestion. It should all just go away.
Harrumph. Go ahead, say it. I'm a grumpus today, and there's nothing to be done about it.
