There were tons of things going on today at work...  
...very little of which was actual work getting done, unfortunately. :( Our temporary third person was worried about her future with the company, my boss was having a horrible "are you my appointment?" day, and a co-worker of mine sent out a brain teaser in an email to everyone that became the topic of everyone's conversation... All that in the span of my 8 hour work day and the actual amount of work that got done? VERY little. :(

The weather here has gone from bad to worse - up until now it was just humid, hot, and rainy :P, but now it's humid, hot, rainy, with flash flood warnings all over the state... :P It seems so odd since I'm sitting here in what feels like 90 degree heat with no sign of rain anywhere...

In other news - today Sydney apparently found out she could get into the trash while we were at work, because when Mark came home, there was a HUGE mess all over the kitchen floor! He was furious! And when he was done scolding her, he said she went upstairs and didn't come down for a while (which is odd because she usually has to be near us at all times). Mark felt bad - he said that it felt like she went upstairs to cry... It's sort of amusing how we try to put human emotions on our pets - but really - that's what it felt like she did... :( I'm just a push over when it comes to the dog, I feel really bad when we have to punish her - Mark's more of the disciplinarian.

Craig Schulman's concert at the Hilton is this weekend. Mark asked me if I wanted to go to it way back when we first heard about it in April or so. I thought about it then decided against it. I like Craig Schulman (still one of my favorite Valjeans) but the tickets are rather pricey and right now, I feel that the money is better spent in other ways (like on an AC perhaps?) :P

AND it feels like I haven't seen Kevin in a musical in ages... there doesn't seem to be a lot of Equity casting calls in general recently in LA. :( I really want to see him in the role of Jamie in "The Last 5 Years" OR the lead in "Gunmetal Blues" at the Colony in September... He needs to get himself back on stage... It's been way too long and he needs a hearty role in a long run of something great. :)

BTW, here's the brainteaser that my co-worker sent that was the talk of our work place: "If a brick weighs 7 pounds and half a brick, how much does a brick and a half weigh?" Anyone know? :)
Current Mood: hothot

Oooooooooh Craig is singing again here? Okay, maybe I'm thinking I did see it, but decided not to go either.

You're right about the weather, we had a flood on the highway here. We had a sudden down pour of rain again...more tomorrow and Saturday.

I think if he was singing at the Blaisdell I'd be more apt to want to go - the Hilton makes it seem too lounge-ish in a way. And tickets are a bit pricey for me right now...

More rain?? That means traffic... :( People here just don't know how to drive in bad weather! :( Hope the weather goes back to normal soon!

Hmm...I thought it was always beautiful where you lived--at least that's what the travel magazines say! That's so funny about Sidney running off to cry, Mortie does the same thing! I'm a push over for him too! He looks at me with those sore puppy eyes
and I just can't bring myself to stay mad at him! Yeah he has me

Hi Barb!
The travel magazines lie! ;) It's all just a ploy to boost our faltering tourism industry. ;) I WISH the weather was as beautiful as the ads portray it here... Maybe next week...

Yup, Sydney's got me trained well. :) She knows I'm a push over and will use it to her advantage! :)

Have fun at your daughter's open house today!

We have to keep our garbage can under the kitchen sink locked up and away from the huskies.

I always feel bad when any of our animals goes off to be sad, too.

Hmm...locked up is a great idea. I'll have to talk to Mark about that. My fear was that she ate something in there that would be bad for her... but luckily she seems to be fine. :) A little sad, but fine.

Hope you're having a nice Friday. :)

Re: Dogs + trash = bad news
What is it with them loving stinky stuff?

I don't know, but Sydney's the same way... Except that she's a bit of a prissy dog - when we go out she'll be upset if she has to walk in mud - I guess raising her indoors has made her a bit of a priss. :)
