Two new employees...  
...started in our back office today. We're a pretty close group back there so I feel a little sorry for new people coming in. It's not that we're not welcoming or friendly or anything, but we've become sort of like family back there and it's hard to open up completely to someone new right away. The guy who started as our new financial analyst was pretty quiet and didn't seem too friendly, though. :( Hopefully he'll see we're not bad people and open up to us as time goes by. :)

The work problems I had been worrying about took me all morning (and into the afternoon) to try to resolve. I think I've fixed all but one of them (which will probably take me the entire day tomorrow to fix.) I think that I'll probably sleep a little better tonight, though now that most of them are resolved. I'm horrible that way - I just can't sleep if there's something that I'm really worried about. :P

Speaking of work, my boss wants us all in the back office to go with her and her children to the upcoming "American Idol" concert this summer. :) The funniest thing is that most of us who are interested in going are over 30. ;) I think that's what I love most about work - the people. :) I just feel so blessed to be able to work with people whose company I really enjoy. :)

And it's a shame that I missed this... It combines my two favorite things: musical theatre and Tyler Florence! :) BTW, Mark gets a kick out of watching me watch "Food 911" on TV because I'm always SO convinced that every woman with a "food emergency" is trying to hit on Tyler. :D But - my gosh - who wouldn't flirt with him the way he looks? :) *SIGH*

I'd better get back to studying, I hope you all have a nice evening!

You know I have been sneaky and been following American Idol. There is a two week delay here. I always wonder why they make them do those cheesy commercials...

Oh..Tyler Florence...I have plenty of food emergencies...too bad I moved continents! *sigh* I miss that show! And yeah, which girl in their right mind wouldn't try flirting... I think he flirts back now and then... *chuckles and giggles like a little fangirl*

Oh, you get "American Idol" out there too? :D Two weeks delayed is not bad at all. And I'd always wondered about those silly commercials too... but sometimes they're fun. ;)

Ah Tyler Florence! *SIGH* You know that Susan was making up her own food emergencies and was about to submit it to Food Network too - unfortunately Tyler doesn't travel outside of the Tri-state area now. :( But I always get such a kick out of all the flirting that goes on during his show! :)

oh yes... American Idol is big here! It inspired to start up Malaysian Idol (also the Australian Idol being Malaysian born helped too!)

Tyler Florence! ::swoon:: Doesn't he have a gf? Darn... *LOL*

*SIGH* I think he does... :( But then again I have a hubby - so that makes us even. ;) JK, of course! :) He's still my favorite to look at on the Food Network, though! *SIGH* :)

Yeeeeep, I agree, it doesn't turn to watch right? I also like Todd English, but he's married. *LOL*

Hopefully the new guy is just shy and not stuck-up.

When are you taking your next exam?

I'm hoping he's just quiet too. We all tried talking with him, but he didn't seem too interested in meeting us, but I guess we'll have to see.

I was going to try to schedule my 24 for the 10th, but now I'm thinking that it may be too soon. I think I'll have to stretch it out until the 17th. I'm not ready for it at all! :P

It's hard for me to sleep when I'm worried about something as well. I hope you got some rest. :)

Tyler is pretty darn cute. :) Not as cute as Roger though. :D

Thanks Carrie! I slept really well last night, maybe a little too well. :P

Not as cute as Roger though.

Awww! That's so sweet!
