The two-hundred-twenty-second, two-hundred-twenty-third, and two-hundred-and-twenty-fourth days combined...

Thursday, November 5, 2009
Sorry for not posting for a couple of days. I've been so tired, and busy, and stressed, etc. Not only do I feel like I'm getting sick again, but work is kicking my butt - hard.

I don't know how it happened, as the projects that come in are supposed to be assigned on a rolling basis, but I was assigned two projects that start next week. I was assigned both projects on Monday (the 2nd). One wants to start on Monday (the 9th), and the other wants to start next Friday (the 13th). Keep in mind that the we generally need 6 to 8 weeks to complete the paperwork process, so being assigned both of these really pissed me off. Not only that, but everyone at work has known, since September, that I will be out of the office on the 6th and the 13th. The whole thing has just had me tight all week. It sucks when you feel like you're being taken advantage of at work - well, anywhere really.

I did find time to take my Halloween decorations down - and put up my Turkey Day ones, of course!

If I had captured a side view, you'd be able to tell that the big centerpiece is a turkey :)

This morning some of my co-workers and I stumbled into a serious conversation about the old ABC TGIF lineup :)

Pictures obtained here, here, here and here

It was a welcome moment of levity, and it was hilarious that the conversation went on as long as it did. It started off when J shouted out the question "What was that show...that one with LL Cool J? Not the new one - the old one." I instant shouted out my reply, "In the House?" Then P shouted back, "Hey, was that in the TGIF thing?" The conversation snowballed from there :) Unfortunately, I now have the Family Matters theme song stuck in my head. I can't believe I even remember it.

Tangent: A lot of shouting goes on in our office each day. I often wonder what people on the other ends of all the phone conversations think when they call us and are trying to discuss business only to hear things like "F*** that! I told him to get that to me now!", "She hasn't cashed her checks since June. What the h*** does she want me to do", and "I understand that you felt uncomfortable when he told you to take your bra off ma'am. We will definitely contact the company and get to the bottom of this".

Anyway, I loved the TGIF lineup when it was on. How about you? Anyone out there who used to love Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, Step by Step, Full House, Boy Meets World, Mr. Belvedere, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, etc? I have a poll to the right. Vote if you get a chance :)

Have a great day everyone!

OHMIGOSH I loved TGIF!

Perfect Strangers was the best...they seriously need to release that show on DVD!

Hey Jeanette :) I hear you. I look forward to the food every year; turkey, ham, stuffed potatoes, mac & cheese, cornbread stuffing, pies. How many more days is it again? :)

Hey FG :) I loved that show too; Balki was hilarious! They do have it on DVD already - seasons 1 and 2 anyway. It's $22.99 on Amazon :)

Have a great day ladies!

I never understood, if the two guys on Perfect Strangers didn't get along all the time, why didn't they just move apart?

Probably wouldn't have worked so well as a sitcom, then.

I saw your comment at Fidgeting Gidget and I came over to say hi because I just love pretty pictures : ) and I wanted to see yours. What a fun blog. I used to LOVE TGIF! Step by step was my favorite!

Hey Badass :) No it probably wouldn't have :) That show was hilarious to me back then - that Bronson Pinchot! Haha!

Hey Life with Kaishon :) Thanks for stopping by, and for leaving such an awesome comment :) Step by Step was a good one. I was a big Patrick Duffy fan!

Have an amazing weekend!
