My hubby - the closet "American Idol" fan...  
...actually said to me after tonight's episode, "I can't believe we missed two seasons of this... Where the heck have we been for the past two years?" ;) Haha! Apparently under a rock! :P He's far too amused by the show and will now remind me, "Remember American Idol is on tonight!" :D

And yikes! I did it again. :( I let my safety check expire on me. :( I'm planning on taking my car in to be checked before I go to work tomorrow morning - because probably the day I think about putting it off will be the day I'll get pulled over for not having it. :( And pathetic as it may sound, I did this last year too. :P

Work is going surprisingly well. I love my co-workers and I feel like I've become a part of their team - which is nice. :) And though I need to keep a bottle of Tylenol in my desk drawer for the problems that some of the reps hand over to us to fix, I think that I could get used to this. The one down side is I'm only making a fraction of what I made in my other position (with all the commissions). :P But to me, work is not all about the pay - at least I'm enjoying the work and really enjoying the people I work with. :)

Seven days and counting until NYC! :) Woo hoo! I'm finally going to get to see "Wicked"! I can't wait! :)

I think it's great that you love your job. :)

Thanks Carrie. :) I thinks it's more that I love the people I work with. :) The job itself is just okay (gives me too many headaches). :P

I'm still waiting to see Jasmine, from Hawaii sing. I keep hearing she's super good. She won Road to Fame on Oceanic 16 last year. Gee wiz, I don't even remember that being on tv. Maybe they will replay it.

I haven't seen her either. :( It's my first season watching AI so maybe you can help me answer this - is it possible that they could NOT show someone this whole time who has a chance of making it to the final stages? Were all the previous people who made it to the final stages in prior years featured heavily early on in their seasons? It kind of made me wonder since I haven't seen some people at all. :(

My friend said, they're hiding that Maryknoll girl, Jasmine Trias, cause she's that good. To me, she's cute and all I've ever heard her do is 1 second of belt. *LOL* I keep hearing she's going to blow everyone away. Simon said, she sounds like Whitney Houston. I have to hear it to believe it. She's only 16 and she's petite.

I just looked at the AI site (well, Mark did - and I looked with him) - everyone seems to like Camille from Maui. I hope that we get to see more of Jasmine soon - I can't wait to hear her voice!

Yep, I really like Camille too. I'm going to have a major problem voting for the 2nd group. Camille, Amy, & Charly are in it. Oh well, I can vote a bunch of times for each? *L*

I hope we get to see Jasmine soon too. I figure she'll live up to the hype, I think. *L*

Glad you like your job. Sometimes peace of mind and happiness is more important than money! A trip anywhere would sound sooo good right now!
Sherishutterbug93 on February 5th, 2004 08:12 am (UTC)
Very true! :) I've been lucky to have worked with some really great people (especially at my other branch) and really - I think that's what keeps me at my jobs. The work itself is really not what I would choose to do as my first choice, but the work atmosphere and environment are wonderful. :)

Just dropping by
Hi, I heard you have a sheltie and had to come have a look at your journal. What a lovely photo! I have had a sheltie too (died in 1993). Nowadays I am a proud owner of a Finnish Lapphund, which is lovely breed as well. Although, your climate would be too warm for these dogs as they are meant for colder climates.

Re: Just dropping by
Hi there! :) Thanks for your comment! Shelties are wonderful dogs (I'm sorry to hear about the passing of yours!) :( I've never seen a Finnish Lapphund - have you posted photos in your journal?

Mind if I add you, by the way? I always love speaking with other dog lovers. :)

Re: Just dropping by
I am so new here at LiveJournal that I don't know how to post photos yet (or links). Or, yes I have my own photo there but other than that I don't have any yet. I could e-mail you some if you like? I try to scan a photo of my sheltie also. And check the following link


if you want to know more about the Finnish Lapphund. In my country (Finland), this breed was 6th most popular in 2003 but the rest of the world has never heard of it. Here in the Netherlands (that is where I live) we have now an official Finnish Lapphund club since last year and we have about 160 such dogs living here.

I already added you on my friends list, I love talking to other dog owners too!

I'm glad that you like your work. And yes, I agree with you - the people you work with have to do a lot with the fact how well you feel at work. It's good to know that you have got nice co-workers. :)

Only seven days - I hope that you will have a wonderful time in NYC. :)

Please, take care. *Hugs*
Sherishutterbug93 on February 5th, 2004 10:57 pm (UTC)
That's so true! I think that we all spend more time with our co-workers than we do with our own spouses and if I didn't get along with them, I'd be miserable at work. I'm very fortunate to work with such nice people. :)

I can't wait for NYC! :)

Please take care too and I hope you're having a nice week. *HUGS*
