Catching up!  
When I came home from work today I noticed that Sydney had gotten into some food that I had in my carry-on bag. :[ The bag wasn't open when I left, so I assume that she nosed the zipper open to get to it. :P Luckily she only ended up eating a couple of Special K bars and not something worse, like chocolate. :P Sometimes she's just a little too resourceful for our own good. :P

I'm slowly making headway at work and the "to do" pile on my desk and on the floor is slowly beginning to go down. Even at home, I've been able to catch my breath a tiny bit. I updated Kevin's site with photos, finally caught up and answered a few delinquent emails that I've been meaning to get to, and was even able to make it to the market so there could actually be real food in our refrigerator. :P Now if I could just get to all my laundry, I'll be ahead of the game. ;)

My boss' birthday is tomorrow so we're ordering lunch and having a big surprise party for her. It's so funny because we're all so bad at lying that we can never really keep our parties a surprise. :P She has no idea we're planning anything, but I guarantee that halfway through the day someone will blow it and she'll find out. ;) I'm not complaining though, since the ability to lie well is NOT an asset in our line of work. :P

In non-work news, that reporter who stopped me outside the polling place yesterday did end up quoting me in an article that appeared in the paper today (I'm the one mentioned all the way at the end). I can't believe I was the only one who wouldn't disclose who I voted for. I have no idea why I've always been so secretive of my voting choices, but I am. :P

And finally, because it's already the 21st where she lives (or possibly already the 22nd), I just wanted to send out warm birthday wishes to intootje! Hope your day was wonderful, Kati! :D

We actually wrote a similar article that'll be published on Friday. :-) I think we talked to about the same number of people that this guy did, except we had two who wouldn't tell us who they were going to vote for, and one who already had via absentee but didn't say who he had already voted for.

Of course, this article also had several reporters spread out and not everyone came through as I had hoped, but that's another rant another time... ;-)

Sounds like a great article. :) But I'm sure your staff didn't ask (like this guy did) "Are you voting for or against someone?" :P I'll bet your staff asked better questions. :)

Whooooohoooooo! You're famous. ;-)

I was thinking of going down to vote, but I'd have to go to Pearlridge and that didn't sound too much fun to me. *L*

aww I miss Pearlridge *sniff*

How long did you live in Hawaii? I pretty much grew up at Pearlridge and now I work right across the street from the mall. I love it! :)
Expresso Maniac: Hawaii Pochaccoexpressomaniac on October 22nd, 2004 02:01 am (UTC)
I was born and raised there and left when I was 18...so 18 years hehe
Pearlridge was the best!!! you work right across from it?
Kananigirlkananigirl on October 22nd, 2004 01:27 am (UTC)
Pearlridge has changed so much... I miss Shirokiya, Liberty House, and JC Penny's. *L*
Expresso Maniac: Red Highlightsexpressomaniac on October 22nd, 2004 02:03 am (UTC)
yeah it has changed... the last time I was in Hawaii, JCPenney's is gone, Liberty House is gone and it's just so weird. I always loved going to JCPenney's :)
Kananigirlkananigirl on October 22nd, 2004 03:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah I know what you mean about JC Penny's. I see the national commericals and I say, "We don't even have a JC Penny's." :-P
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on October 22nd, 2004 12:24 am (UTC)
Haha! :)

I actually voted at the Pearlridge location and it was pretty crowded. :P Luckily, I only work across the street so I could get back to work in time (even stopping for the reporter) ;)

My sister was telling me I had to go there and then I said forget it. *L* I don't want to drive down there, I might as well go on the 2nd.

Thanks for the warm wishes! Yes, it is still the 21st over here :) Hans is taking half a day off so she should come home soon and then we go for a nice walk with Into (somewhere in a forest). Later we are going to a town nearby. I am going to look for some nice stationery as a present for myself and then we go out for dinner.

Sounds like a wonderful birthday you have planned! :) And stationary - what a lovely gift! :) Hope you, Into, and Hans had a nice walk. :)

Being able to check things off on the "to do" list is one of the best feelings! You go girl!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on October 22nd, 2004 12:27 am (UTC)
It sure is! Thanks so much! :D

shelties are just too smart ...

one afternoon, my caleigh managed to scale the kitchen drawer handles to get on the counter so that she could eat something that someone had left on top of the microwave !
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on October 22nd, 2004 12:30 am (UTC)
They really are!

And wow! Caleigh was able to climb onto the counter? That's so amazing! I know that there are few things that will stand between Sydney and food though I don't know if she'd be smart enough to climb up to our countertop. Wow!

aww Sydney is so precious :) glad she didn't get ahold of any chocolate!
yay for surprise parties!! hope she enjoys it hehehe
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on October 22nd, 2004 12:32 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks so much! I was SO glad that she didn't eat any chocolate either!

And my boss was actually surprised by her party (no one let the cat out of the bag) and she really loved it. :)

Sydney is a curious dog. :) Glad that she did not eat chocolate.

I've read the article and I was surprised to see that so many people tell who they voted for. If I had been there you would not have been the only one who would not tell it.

I hope all of you will have a nice time at your boss' birthday.

Please take care, Sheri. *Hugs*

PS: I'm glad that you liked "Dogs in Elk" :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on October 22nd, 2004 12:35 am (UTC)
She really is - maybe a little too curious! ;)

I was really surprised reading the article too. And I don't really know why I'm so secretive about it, but I'm glad to hear that there are other people who feel the same way.

We had such a nice time at my boss' birthday today, :) thank you Sabine. :)

Please take care too! *HUGS*

Sydney is smart little girl isn't she? Glad it wasn't anything toxic to her that she ate..
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on October 22nd, 2004 12:37 am (UTC)
Heehee! I was SO shocked that actually opened my bag to get to the food. Nothing stands between my fuzzy dog and snacks! ;) And I'm glad it was a Special K bar too - it could've been much worse. :P
