Happy Halloween!

Download word art here

I love Halloween!  I mean, how can you not love a holiday that's all about candy?!  But, since I don't get trick or treaters I've kind of started thinking of this day as the last day before my "Me Month" can begin.

My neighbors are throwing a Halloween get together and I plan on staying until after midnight even though it's a school night.  That way I can say the Halloween party is over and my birthday celebration has begun.  lol!

Days like these....

Thank goodness for cooler weather because we still had no air conditioning at school today.  It was just warm enough in the room to give me a serious headache by the end of the day.

YUCK!!!

Is it weird...

Is it weird that I think I want one of those bright light pillows from the cheesy TV commercial?

Wonderfully lazy!

The rain we were supposed to get today stayed away.  Instead, we had a windy but beautiful day.

There was still some standing water in the streets around here, but it was nothing like Friday morning.

I made it to my haircut appointment and met a friend for lunch, but other than that I have done absolutely nothing and it's been wonderful!

I wish I were rich so that I could do nothing everyday!

I love weekends!

Download word art here

I plan on having a very laid back do nothing kind of weekend.  As a matter of fact, it's going to be so laid back that other than an appointment to get my hair cut I may not leave home.  Heck, I may not even head out to get my hair cut!  lol!

Getting from my house to the causeway this morning was no fun.  The streets were flooded and I just wanted to turn around and go home.  It was a teacher workday so there were no kids anyway.  When I got to school, I let my principal know that if I weren't already taking off half of November I would have just stayed home.  lol!

Now, November 1 is less than a week away and you know I've already told Orange Croc Guy to stay far far away from the basketball courts.  But what about me?  Should I attempt NANOWRIMO this year?

I love the idea of starting another novel even if I'm the only one that reads it.  The days I'm home recuperating may go by faster if I'm trying to reach that 50K word goal. 

What do you think?  Should I go for it?  Will you guys read what I write?  Can you offer up some names for characters?

Wet weather ahead...

It looks like we're in for a very wet weekend and I'm kind of looking forward to it.  I've got lots of things I need to get done and with the bad weather I'll be forced to stay home.

OK, so I probably won't get to half the things on my "to do" list, but I bet I'll get lots of sleep. lol!

The date has been set...

WOW!  Today's wordart is perfect for the news I'm sharing.  I hate dealing with grown up issues!  It's just no fun!

Anyway, The doctor has set the date for my next procedure and it's November 20. 

I made it clear that they were not to mess with my birthday in any way!  I was hoping for a date after the first of December, but I'll settle for the 20th.  LOL!

I let my principal know today that I basically won't be working in November.  He didn't believe me at first, but then I gave him a rundown of the days I'll be taking off.....

I need this day off for my pre-surgery stuff,  I need these days off for my birthday and I need these days off for the surgery and recovery time.

Add in Veteran's Day and the Thanksgiving break and you see that I'm really not exaggerating!

November really is the best month ever! (Except for that whole surgery thing)

My principal laughs at me for taking my birthday off, which is proof that he just doesn't realize how truly awesome I am.  I tell him all the time, but he never listens!

With everything that's been going on lately, we haven't actually decided where or how my birthday will be celebrated, but Orange Croc Guy has been put on notice-----stay away from the basketball court!

I told you that I didn't want it to be Monday!

Download word art here

UGH! What a weird day I had!  Thank goodness it's over.

For some reason I couldn't sleep Sunday night so I got up really early and watched the latest episode of The Walking Dead that I had recorded.  It was awesome!

After watching The Walking Dead, I still had about 30 minutes before the alarm went off so I headed back to bed.  I got in a quick nap with a really weird dream that I don't really remember very well.  That's probably for the best!

As I was leaving for work I heard a strange sound outside.  It sounded like someone walking while dragging some sort of heavy metal.  Of course, after spending a weekend that was about all things zombie, I decided that there must be a zombie after me.  I mean what else could it have been?

I decided to forgo the stairs and headed for the elevator.  Once I got up to the third level of the parking garage I thought I would be safe, but I heard the sound again and it still sounded like it was coming from behind me.  I walked to my car very quickly thinking, "OMG!  the zombie followed me in the other elevator!"

Luckily, I made it into my car and got the doors locked before the zombie caught me.  I never did see the sneaky thing, but I know it was there!

I made it to school, but my class was worried about me because for some reason I kept calling on Jose and waiting for him to answer.  I don't have a Jose in my class and I can't remember the last time did.

We were working on the sound for the letter Pp today.  I was trying to get my class to tell me the word I was thinking of and the only rule was that the word had to start with the letter P.  They had a hard time coming up with the word piano, but as soon as I said, "On my birthday, I will invite my friends to my _____."  They all shouted out "party" pretty fast.  As a matter of fact, one of the boys even said, "Party at Ms. Brown's house!"  I am not kidding!  He said that and I decided it was time to end that game.

I came home and wanted nothing more than to go to sleep, but I had a message from the doctor's office.  I hope they were calling to let me know the date of my next procedure, but I didn't return the call.  I was just too tired.  Besides, it's probably better for everyone if I make that call on a day that I've had more sleep, haven't been chased by a mystery zombie and aren't worried that a bunch of five years olds are going to show up at my house for a party.

I let my neighbors con me into going out for an early dinner and a couple of drinks even though I really didn't want to go.  It was going to be the two of them and a friend of theirs that has been hanging around for the last month or so and me. 

Now, I don't usually change the names to protect the innocent and that's mostly because no one I know is actually innocent.  But this time, I need to change this guys name and I figure I may as well call him Jose since that name has been stuck on my brain all day.

Anyway, we went to dinner close by and sat around talking and laughing after we had eaten.  Suddenly, Jose announces that he's tired of waiting for the waitress to come back and heads to the bar to pick up another round and my neighbor says she needs the restroom and walks away just as quickly as Jose. 

This left me alone at the table with my neighbor's husband and I knew right away that  this was more than just a dinner.....they were trying to fix me up with Jose!  I don't want to be fixed up with Jose!

Here's how that conversation went....

Neighbor:  You know that Orange Croc Guy is my friend and if I felt like the two of you were ever going to be a real couple I wouldn't even ask this question, but what do you think of Jose?

Me:  I think that he's your friend so it's what you think that matters, but he is nice.

Neighbor:  If he asked would you go out with him?

Me:  Honestly, I didn't think he liked girls.

Neighbor:  OMG!  Quit being stupid!  He likes girls.

Me: Well, then please don't ever tell him that I thought he didn't cause that would just hurt his feelings.

Neighbor:  Will you go out with him?

Me:  No, I don't think that would be a good idea.

Neighbor:  Why?  Is it because of OCG? 

Me: No, it has nothing to do with him.  It's me.  I mean...just look at me.

Neighbor:  There is nothing wrong with the way you look.

Me:  Dude, I know that!  I look good and that's the problem!  Jose will fall in love with me and I'll just break his heart and then it will be really weird every time we're all together. 

Neighbor:  You're hopeless.

Me:  I know.  That's what makes me so lovable.

Strangely enough, Jose and my neighbor returned to the table at the same time.  It was a little awkward at first, but the round of drinks that Jose bought helped.

Now, here it is almost midnight and I'm still awake and I'm not sure if anything I've told you about my day makes sense.  It's OK if it doesn't though, cause I lived through it and I'm not sure I understand any of it either.  lol!

***I know you guys are all Team OCG, so don't worry he's still in the picture.  We (and yes, I mean me.) are just trying to figure some things out right now.***

I don't want it to be Monday!

Download word art here

This weekend has flown by and I am so sad to see it end!

The good news is that I get to tell you about what I did on Saturday morning. The bad news is that it wasn't as awesome as I had thought it was going to be.

There was supposed to be a zombie flash mob in downtown Miami on Saturday morning after the Race for the Cure. There were hundreds of people signed up, but only about 30 zombies showed up. The downtown traffic was a mess because of the Race for the Cure and I think people just gave up and went home. Apparently, zombies like to cause traffic jams but they don't like to be caught in traffic. lol!

I will tell you that at one point I was standing in the middle of the crowd that was there for the Race for the Cure walk looking for zombies so that I could direct them to the correct area. As I was standing there one of my friends that lives downtown approached me thinking I had participated in the walk. I told him that I hadn't and that I was just looking for Zombies. He laughed because he thought I was joking.

As we stood there talking a couple of zombies approached from behind my friend. I stopped in the middle of my sentence and called out, "Zombies, this way. Go toward the water and turn right." You should have seen the look on my friends face!

Anyway, since the morning zombies were a disappointment we decided to hit up the zombie crawl on Lincoln Road Saturday night. The South Beach zombies rock! Plus, I didn't have to fight traffic to get there because I walked.

There were way more zombies and they were great about having a bunch of photographers stalking them as they made their way up Lincoln Road and back down again.

We hit up Finnegans Pub for refreshments....lots and lots of refreshments before calling it a night.

Needless to say, I slept in on Sunday!

After spending the afternoon visiting with my friends, who dropped by unannounced, I grabbed my camera and headed out to photograph the sunset from South Point Park with the Miami Beach Photography Club.

It was a beautiful night with a great breeze.

At some point in the awesomeness that was my weekend I lost my resort pass and have had to be extra nice to the guards at the gate so I could get in.

Saturday night, I got onto the property with no problem, but getting into the building was another story. There was no one around and no matter how many times I looked up at the security camera and begged to be let in no one opened the door for me. (Whoever was supposed to be monitoring the camera was probably sleping. lol!) I tried using the freight elevator, but they had it turned off for the night. That didn't stop me from getting on and pushing all of the buttons though. lol! I'm not sure why I thought it would work for one floor if it wouldn't work for another. (I did mention that there had been lots of refreshments, right?)

After begging the security camera to let me in and pressing all the buttons on the freight elevator I gave up and just started walking around trying to open random doors. lol! Eventually, I spotted a door that had been proped open and headed that way. It got me into a building and from there I was able to get into my building. (Thank goodness the buildings are all connected!)

When I got home from taking pictures of the sunset getting into the building was much easier. I simply followed a couple of random guys in from the parking garage. lol!

Now, I've got to get some sleep and figure out how I'm getting back into the building after work.

Hello weekend!

Download word art here


I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that the weekend is here!  Working 5 days a week is for the birds!

I am involved in something tomorrow morning that is going to be so cool!  I can't tell you about it yet because it's top secret.  At least it's as top secret as a couple hundred people can keep it.  lol!

I've sort of kind of kept it a secret because I haven't revealed all of the details to anyone and mostly I've only revealed things people that don't even live in Miami.  So, I could probably tell you guys since you probably don't live in Miami.  But, with my luck someone who does live here would read this and get all the details before they're supposed to be revealed and they would tell someone who tells someone who tell someone, etc....And before you know it everyone in Miami knows the secret and they're all mad at me.

I don't want everyone who lives in Miami to be mad at me!  So you guys are just going to have to wait until after the fact to get the details...and hopefully see the pictures

Trust me though, it's super cool and I'm really excited and you're going to be jealous!  HAHA!
