Did I mention I hate my computer?

Blogging from work would be wrong. And that is why I am not doing it right now.

Computer COMPLETELY dead at home. Dead. Dead dead dead. Stick a fork in it. The fat lady has sung. Unfortunately, that fat lady is me.

I blame work. If someone is gonna BRING chocolate-chip cookies stuffed with Oreos, what am I to do? IGNORE them? They won't be IGNORED.

Also? While I am not blogging from work? I have had this photo on my desktop for the longest time…

6a00e54f9367fb88340133edb07250970bOh. Wait. That is not the picture I wanted to put in…

Photo(7)Here it is. This is my coworker TinaDoris' puppy, with the toy I gave her. My dogs never once played with this and my mother spent $800,000 on it. You are supposed to put treats in the bottle and the dogs are supposed to figure it out. The dogs reacted the same way I do when I see Sudoku.

So at least Penny, here, likes the rope part. I love her.

I know! June loves an animal! Sound the alarm!

I had better go, because I have to, um, go to work. Because I am not at work already. Nosir. But before I do I want to tell you that (a) I am getting a new computer TOMORROW after Tallulah's vet appointment (nothing wrong with her. Just general shots and telling me she weighs too much and sticking something up her bung to check for worms. Basically she will adore me tomorrow) and (4) I see The Fireman tonight.

Oh! And I was in the spare room, not to sound like The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, and I saw this outside my window:

Fleur
Oh, piffle.

Fleur
There we go. Geez. Blogging from…home…certainly is an adjustment. 

Anyway, how pretty! In all the overgrown jungle that is my back yard a flower has grown! A flower grows in Greensboro. And yes I DID traipse out there in this driving rain, in case anyone is local and knows of the monsoon we are experiencing currently.

Okay, I'd better…get to work!

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  1. I eat shrimp, but it’s cooked. I thought sushi was raw. I can’t stand jazz or cilantro. But I did love the grilled pimento cheese sandwich I had the other day at The Trellis Grill in Atlanta.

  2. Yeah, I kinda do it Tee’s way. On the fly with what I feel like.
    *Grated sharp cheddar (I like smoked cheddar if you can get it.)
    *one of those little jars of pimento w/juice
    *dash Worchestershire
    *Some heat — chopped chipotle pepper, dash or two of cayenne, crushed red pepper, etc
    enough Duke’s mayo to bind (although these days I usually put like two TBS of mayo, two of plain Greek yogurt)
    *a TBS or two of grated sweet onion
    But if somebody doesn’t like mayo, you can sub light cream cheese (Neufchatel) as a binder. And I have been known to put bacon in it.

  4. Lindy, you are soooo right. As kids my Mom would make us pimento cheese sandwiches for our school lunches and we would buy the Fritos and put them on the sandwich. Now I want some Fritos.

Because, you know, I have no effing computer at home. Did you know that? Anyway, the hoop-jumping photo is Talu. She is not that big of a dog. But try to kick her, Siren. Nice stump.

  28. Proscuitto, deli meats, unpasteurized milk products … all kinds of things can carry the listeria bacteria, and pregnant women have a much greater risk of becoming ill from it than the general population. (The immune system is somewhat suppressed in the third trimester.) Listeriosis can cause miscarriage, premature delivery, infection in the newborn and neonatal death. Unfortunately, the number of cases of the bacteria seems to be increasing, or else we’re just hearing about it more (a la E.coli).

    Cambozola is, as my husband says, the Eminem of cheeses. It is the apex of cheesery. A combination of gorgonzola and camambert. Absolute perfection.
