Manny Haters Can Kiss My Butt

You people (and you know who you are) who crab and moan about Manny and say they should trade him? Pthbthbthbth. I love Manny. At least once a game, I say it out loud. I love Manny. Manny being Manny doesn’t bother me, either. I don’t see what the big frigging deal is, and was […]

Hey, Federated

I just wanted to weigh in. Not that it makes a difference. But according to a news story, Filenes is history, to be sucked up and chewed out into Macy’s mush. I don’t shop at Macy’s. I shop at Filenes. Period. And you say “Customers have told us they want the fashion and affordable luxury […]

5 or 6 Hours Without Power

We took Phantom to puppy training class last night, and when we got home at 7, the power was out. I could have been out for a minute, or 60 minutes, given that we weren’t home. It didn’t come back on until almost midnight. So now I’m wondering if the food in the fridge and […]

Head Down

Sorry if I’m a little absent. I’m very focussed on finishing my project – I only have until Friday. And I officially started to freak a bit about leaving here. I have a 4 week contract starting monday at a different company, but after that, who knows. I guess I need to put a little […]

That Warm Glow

No, I’m not talking about the weather. I’m talking about the warm fuzzy feeling I got last night and again this morning as I was driving past the new Target to go home and I thought “So, Jody, do you need anything at Target? Cause if you do, it’s right there and you can just […]

Target Review

What, it needs a review? C’mon, it’s Target! If you haven’t gone to the new one today, make sure you go to the pharmacy. If you go to the pharmacist, they have a gift bag worth at least $20… P.s. Traffic on Harvard street didn’t seem horrendous…

Friday, Hawaiian Style

I’m wearing a very festive shirt today. Very flowery. It’s not a Hawaiian shirt per-se, but it’s leaning that way. I put it on because I felt like wearing something summary. It is summer, you know. Another million degree day. I’m looking forward to the weekend, they say it’s going to settle back down to […]

I HATE When I Do That!

I forgot to take my phone with me to work today. I HATE when I do that. Moreso because it isn’t just my phone, it’s my Sidekick, with all my mail, etc. Grrrrrrrrrrrr So now this day feels like a Monday, even though it isn’t. It’s stinky also because the phone downloads mail from the […]

Time to Take the Collection Home

Looks like I’ll need to clean out the old cubicle, as my contract is up on the 29th and I will be spending August working for another company. Hopefully we can track down something else for me to do here after that, but who knows. It stinks being a contractor around contract renewal time. That […]

Dank; No, not danke, dank

It’s gross out. I feel like I’m trying to breath underwater. I suspect this is not a good day to go for a quick jog, y’knowwhatImean? And tomorrow (hell, the rest of the week) isn’t supposed to be any better. I forgot to write up my Canobie Lake Park summary yesterday, but in my defense, […]
