I got my own printer! For most of you, this may not mean much. But for those who remember my Office Space entry, the shared printer was getting uber frustrating. Alex (the other Alex, I’m not referring to myself in the third person…yet) really pulled through and mentioned to the attorney that calling the office manager to ask her if we could print, then walking around the corner to pick up every document we print, was really getting in the way of our productivity. Said and done–within an hour or so, there was a printer installed in my cubicle (no office yet, I’ll post on that later).
In the spirit of Christmas, I’m sharing with you a movie that everyone should watch at least once during the Holiday Season. I’m sure most of you have already seen this movie before, but I’ll be honest and tell you that if it wasn’t for marrying into the Armstrong Family, I probably wouldn’t even have known about it, or caught all the jokes in movies, TV shows, etc., about the leg lamp.
Here’s a little trailer for A Christmas Story:
I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Christmas, sharing it with those you love.
Merry Christmas everyone!
I owe this musical discovery to Kitty, who has now moved to better and greener pastures and is living with her hubby in Spain. Gracias, Kitty! Chambao has an amazing voice, I hope you all enjoy!
I’m pretty sure it started after law school began, when I was too busy to watch the news at home or read a newspaper, and still wanting to know what was going on with the world. At some point, while driving, I got fed up with having to continually scan the radio stations to find something good (even though Jeff might say my music standards are still pretty subpar). And so, to get my fill of current events, and prevent the continual station scan, I landed with news radio. I think a few years ago I would have felt lame about listening to NPR and KNX 1070 more frequently than any radio station. I guess self-confidence is one of the few good things about growing older!
So for those regular followers, I wanted to give you all a quick update on things. As I knew would happen, now that I have a full time job I haven’t been able to write on here as much as I’d like. I’m starting to make notes of ideas I get for things to write, whenever they come to mind, which means endless stickies which might not make sense when I read them a couple days later.
So if you remember from my last blog, I wrote about the new lady that had started working at my office. Well, after discovering her perpetual lateness (every day since she started, and I’m not talking about 5-10 minutes late, I’m talking about an hour to an hour and a half late), she was promptly let go. Crazy, but it makes sense. Anyhow, there’s another new girl that’s doing some side work, and she seems like a really nice girl. She’s a pretty girl, and she’s 18, which means all the boys in the office are riled up. She seems to be taking it pretty well though!
I’m hoping most of you recognize the above quote from Office Space. Do you remember the frustration with which it was said? Because that is my frustration sometimes with the printer at my work. Except that the printer actually DOES have a paper jam…with every. Other. Page.
Jeff and I went out for dinner tonight, a date night if you will. It wasn’t anything crazy, we just went to Chili’s, ordered food, some drinks, and picked up a movie at Blockbuster. I should mention that my strawberry margarita gave me the WORST brain freezes I never even knew were possible. I’m not exaggerating–it was terrible. I almost considered not drinking anymore of my over-priced margarita. Almost.
Amazing video that Jeff found a while back, thought I’d share:
