New software!

Today I'm using Adium and Opera.

Adium quacks like a duck.

And So...

The hurricane huffed and puffed and flooded New Orleans.

For those of you keeping track, the D-Day Museum is located there. We aren't sure if there are jeeps and u-boats floating - but the good news is that it sits on the highest point in town. Not that it means anything, since the rest of the city has to be pumped out anyway.

Ah, another project brought to a standstill due to forces beyond our control.

Perhaps we could spin that into a catchphrase:

"Everything we touch goes on hold!"

The Sun! It Burns!

Oh, the beach is so much fun.

Until you get home and realize that you're a whole lot redder than you thought.

My BUTT is burned. I feel like working standing up all day. But at least my feet didn't get burned like Morgan's did. Poor crunchy feet.

TV Anchor Sues Former Color Me Badd Singer

I didn't care about this until I saw where he works now.

Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Hot! Hot! Hot!

It's going to be 100 degrees today - I'm sitting in the office wearing a sweater and I'm still cold.

I think I have a problem.

Unsweetened cranberry juice.

Not only does it taste bad, but it dries out your throat too - then you can't swallow it.

That is all.

If I drink any more liquid I'm going to float away.

No, it doesn't make a difference that I'm going to Vegas tonight.

I'm still crabby.

Stupid dirty shirt set my whole day off.

Three Years?!?!!

Happy work anniversary to me.

Three years today.

No one remembers.

I thought I might actually DO some work today, but the machine I was going to work on is otherwise occupied.

That's fine - I'll buy a bathing suit instead.

Quote of the Morning

From Jennifer Aniston:
On Pitt's recently dyed blond hair, she says, ' Billy Idol called — he wants his look back.'

Scalp = Fiery

Sometimes when you think something might be a bad idea, you're right.

Take, for instance, my hair-coloring debacle of Sunday. Eight hours of dyeing, which, as I started, seemed like a bad idea.

Boy, I had no idea how right I was.

Lessons learned:
'Born Blonde' haircolor must be made for those who were born blonde, not the brunettes who think 'I can do blonde at home'.
Brunettes cannot do blonde at home.
Brunettes who try end up with trailer trash orange-blonde hair.
I will pay $200 for someone to make me a blonde next time.

Morgan made a valiant effort to save my hair - but, in the end I had to dye it back. And by the third dye job I was asphyxiating on the ammonia fumes and weeping from the searing pain the dye was inflicting on my poor scalp.

I am now somewhere between strawberry and ash blonde. I like it.

But my scalp freakin' hurts.
