Rain, rain, and even more rain...  
...What a storm we had today! I felt bad for all my LJ friends in California yesterday who talked about how bad the weather was and then we got hit today! :P The thunder was so strong that it actually shattered a glass window at my boss' daughter's elementary school! (Luckily no one got hurt) That and the loss of power sent most of the children home early from school today. :P

I thought traffic would be a complete mess coming home and I wanted to get home soon since I know how scared Sydney gets when earth shaking thunder strikes. :( I hoped that she was okay all by herself at home and not hiding under the bed. :( Luckily traffic was much better than normal (I think everyone was stuck in the town vicinity) and I got home relatively quickly. Sydney was whining before I opened the door and as soon as I walked in she jumped into my arms. I'm glad I was able to come home when I did, the poor thing must've been scared to death by herself! :(

In work news, we're planning a big surprise luncheon for my boss tomorrow. :) The end of the month marks her 10th anniversary with the bank and we're getting her flowers, Chinese food for lunch, and chipping in to buy her "comfort" items from Sharper Image (the thought being that after 10 years of stress at the bank, she needs to take it easy) ;) It should be great... I don't think she has any idea that we have anything planned. :)

And on a sillier note - I'm tied for the lead in my office's "American Idol" pool! :) There's only one other person who is tied with me for the most picks that are going to the final 12. The pool itself is so much fun - and every Wednesday morning we're huddled at my co-worker's desk seeing who we picked (we randomly picked 10 from the 32 before they even sang - based on what we knew of them from the auditions and the one with the most picks in the final 12 wins.) It's just a fun way to break the boredom of work and it's such a great morale booster. :) I love my work place! :)

And in a mix between my two of my favorite things: "Queer Eye" and Broadway - I just read this. :) Of special note is Hunter Foster and John Tartaglia who will be in a snippet of the show - which I have to see now! :)

I'm off to study some more...hope you all have a nice Friday! :)

I hope you win the American Idol office pool! That would be fun. =)

Glad you guys made it through the storm... we are still getting rain today. Glad you got home and soothed Sydney's nerves.

Thanks! I think it's more fun to talk with everyone about the show (we all watch it religiously in my office!) :) And my mistake was not picking LaToya this past week - I didn't even remember her from the auditions!

The rain has stopped here for now, but we're now getting A LOT of wind. :P And Sydney seems to be pretty calm this morning. Poor thing was a bundle of nerves last night. :P Hope your weather gets better soon.

It is actually getting nicer here now. It was nice enough to take the kiddies out for a walk. We haven't gone on a walk in three days. (And I am required to take them out every day.)

That sounds like really bad weather. Poor Sydney, I'm glad that you could give her some comfort. Hopefully, the weather is better now.

Yesterday I could not leave a comment. The internet connection was so bad that I lost my patience to try it again. Still, I would like to say that your former boss seems to be a very nice man. It was good to hear that you have found place where you fit in and as well as that the door always would be open for you. I'm glad that such good things happened to you. :)

I wish you only the best for your promotion. *Hugs*

Thanks for your nice words, Sabine! :) And Sydney was much better after we got to spend some time with her - Unfortunately the storm that hit us today is actually worse than yesterday. :P It's a good thing we don't have anywhere to go this weekend.
