The Lesson for Today?

Running on concrete is baaad. Unfortunately, I remembered this the hard way tonight at work. Cheryl had gone ahead to the trash compactor and I was attempting to catch up with her. I ended up close to kissing the pavement. At least my left hand took the brunt of it (my right was holding the trash), although I also somehow knocked a chunk of rubber off my left shoe. I'm not having the best week in the world here.

I did have a good day in lab, though. A good day is defined as me not screwing anything up, and I got out of there a full hour early. When we get to have partners, mine basically does everything, since I have an unfortunate tendency to knock the test tubes and spill half our products. But I've only broken one thing so far this semester!

I forgot to mention the Whoppers. To be precise, they are Whoppers in the shape of robins' eggs. Spring is coming, and so is its candy! Although it seems to be a phenomenon here to wear shorts even when it's 30 degrees out. I love the South and it's 70 degree winter days as much as anyone, but do try to adjust on those rare February days where it dips below 50 and spare the rest of us the sight. This is of course why I would freeze to death in a lot of y'all's hometowns- it's actually possible to dress like that even on days we consider cold. Fun, huh?

I lost a chunk of my shoe too, I noticed yesterday. They are about 5 inch platforms and now with a whole in the bottom, it's filling up with gravel.

I start wearing shorts in April, most people start a month later.

Love your new design!

That just goes to show you why taking out the trash is the MAN'S job. *grin*

Thanks, Darlene did the design! Unfortunately, there aren't any men that work at Bath and Body Works (big surprise), so I can't pass off the job to them...

Nettie,

What a great site! From one klutz to another...hang in there...but you always get a great story out of your bumbling...don't you? I'm sorry to say...I always find myself the first one laughing when I fall or when someone else does ; )

Darlene, your design is to die for...I am so jealous!

I live in Tucson and I wear shorts all year. Right now in fact.

We're addicted to the warm weather, huh?

Glad to read you didn't blow up your chem lab. You'll make a fine MD one day.

OK, all the anonymous comments are now gone, since they made too little sense even for me, OK?

For now, you cannot comment anonymously on this blog. I like to have fun, but some of the comments, which will shortly be gone were rude and annoying. Please be respectful, this is not a place to dis people, OK?

 
At 2/18/2005 07:41:00 PM, Blogger Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Cool blog design.

What's with all the anon. posts?

 
At 2/18/2005 07:56:00 PM, Blogger Nettie said...

I have no idea. Some people were trying to be funny, I guess, but only succeeded at being rude and annoying, so I trashed 'em.

 
At 2/18/2005 08:06:00 PM, Blogger Darlene said...

Wow 38 comments! This new design is bringing in the traffic!

Did they dis my design? Because I can take it if they did, but if they dissed you, I'm ticked!

 
At 2/18/2005 08:42:00 PM, Blogger Nettie said...

Nah, they didn't dis the site, just me. They were very, very strange , too- I think Mrs. D. may have seen some of them before I deleted them. It annoys me because I like to be able to have people comment anonymously if they aren't from Blogger, but they kept doing it even after I asked them not to, and that was the only way I could think to get it to stop, since I have no idea who they are- does anyone else have any ideas?

cute new design...very groovey and very you...once I get really committed to this blogging thing I might, too, hire a web designer :)

And by the way, I am so glad you're not going to be a brain suregon.
