LOST...or something

So Larry had to work very late last night and I decided to type up some notes from the first little bit of LOST so he would know what he missed. Seeing as how I never even watched the show until last week I'm pretty sure he would have been better off not reading the email at all...


Maggie? Had a baby boy. They showed a flash back of it. There is a boat that's sailing it has the english guy on it the one where that other skinny nerd implanted the memory.
"We'll be in and out, he'll never know we're here Maggie, don't underestimate him." I think maybe they are sailing towards the island?

Then the group of people are walking in the brush, the red head has a headache. the skinny nerd just asked if she had dizzyness and double vision, and she said yes both. Then she said do you know what's happening to me, he said no nothings happening I won't let it happen. OH DUDE some guy tripped a wire and explosives went off. I don't know who's dead but now they're surrounded by arrows. and some chick in a tank top is holding a gun to them. It's miles the skinny scientist and the red head. The girl seems to know the skinny scientist dude.

Back on the boat with the english man. she insulted the english dude. They are going to go find the skinny dude's mom I think. Daniel is the skinny scientist dude.
"If your going to promise me something des please promise me you'll never go back to that island. Why would I ever want to go there?"

now I'm telling you.

A little exerpt from last night...

Larry: "We want to make sure that the unit doesn't get too hot that it overheats"
Sarah: " are you talking about units that produce hot air in the winter and cold air in the summer?"
Larry: ::confused:: "Um yes, when I say 'Air Conditioner' I'm talking about a unit that conditions the air."
Sarah: "You now realize that this entire time* I thought you were talking specifically about AC/Air Conditioners that blow only cold air."
Larry: "..."

To sum up...I'm kind of an idiot...

*Entire Time = Since we started for over a year and a half...

I'm kind of a geek

Okay, most of you probably don't know this, but I am a HUGE HUGE fan of the series The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. I have read every single book cover to cover since being introduced to them and essentially stealing the book from a friend in 1999. Tragically Robert Jordan passed away from cardiac amyloidosis in 2007.

He and his wife (who was also his publisher) chose another writer to finish the book and follow the carefully laid out notes for the final book. There are/will be 12 books in total plus I think there are actually a few prequels.

I've read a lot online about them possibly having a movie deal for this etc. I am the first one to say: "DON'T DO IT!

I think this would be absolutely butchered by Hollywood. Unless it's done by someone who has read every single word of every single book they won't get it. They'll start cutting scenes and inserting a bunch of crap that doesn't mean anything. Every word Jordan wrote means something. Perhaps not in the book you're reading at the time, but pick up the next one or two and you will see how even the most seemingly insignificant line actually has a purpose that ties everything together.

The only comment I agreed with was regarding making it into a 30-40 hour mini series. I think it would be even more successful than trying to make it Hollywood. They could really devote the time to character development and to getting the sets perfect. They have the option of using computer graphics for the more "magical" scenes etc. They would acquire income from commercials, plus if praying they directed/casted the mini series correctly would have sky rocketing DVD sales. (Pssst! Larry...We'll be buying the whole set so make sure to budget for it!)

If you like fantasy type novels with a great story I really do recommend reading this series. And you're in luck because you won't have to wait three years (as I have...impatiently I might add) for the final book as it is supposed to be released this year.

It kinda looks like this...

Do I have a career in photo shop or what?

Dear President Obama,

Congratulations on being inaugurated.

Below you will see a screen shot I cleverly saved after inputting my information into your tax calculator.

You know where I live so you can send the money at any time.



P.S. I'm watching you buddy.

Sorry I know I'm the only one who cares but I still can't believe it.

(He looks totally hot...HOT btw)

That is all.

Stop...Just stop it

I can't take it anymore. If my coworker sends me ONE more sob story email about why she is not coming into work I will smack her. Or possible shoot a cannon in her general direction...

Here is the context of today's email. Granted we are experiencing cold weather and -20 wind chills blah blah blah but you live in this weather and you chose to live an hour away from where you work. I have no sympathy.

I just wanted to let you know that I will be staying at home today again. I just cannot see it being a good idea taking Thor out in this weather to ride in the vehicle for about 1 to 1 ½ hours in this weather. To switch to another vehicle and drive 30 more minutes. I am truly sorry about this; if it was just husband & I we would have no problems driving but if it is all of us I just don’t see it being a good idea. Of course I will be working from home so if you need me call or email

This is yesterday's

I am sorry but because of the cold weather I am just staying home with Thor. I cannot see putting him at risk out in this weather. I will work from home as much as possible. If you need me please call and again sorry.

It's not as if she drives a convertable with the top down 24/7 she drives an effing minivan. Heat the stupid car up and he won't even know what's going on! I hate people.

My theory? She knows she's being a wimp and that's why she apologizes so much. Bunch of crap this is.

I replied to her email and said: Next time you intend to send an email like this I shall require you insert violin music.

I guess that's why I always receive a DO (Development Opportunity) on my PMD in the area of interpersonal skills......

Who's in the mood to carry a Fat Princess?

This is Larry here. So, one of my coworkers clearly does not have enough to do at work. He's usually on the internet about half the day looking for the latest video games news. I'm ok with it because I just sit back and enjoy the fruits of his searching while I do my work. I've smiled and nodded at most of his findings, but he came across this new game that looks like it's going to be really fun. Everyone get ready for .......... Fat Princess.

As you can see by the video, it's a very cartoonish looking game. It's a multiplayer game for the Playstation 3.....sorry for you XBOX losers. The main premise is that the teams are divided into 2. Each side has the opponent's Princess in their own castle. The object is to make it to the opponent's castle, pick up your team's Princess, and carry your fair maiden back to your own castle. Sounds easy? The funny part is that you can find slices of cake around the entire level that you can feed to the opponent's Princess in order to fatten her up and make it more difficult for the other team to carry her. Throw in the fact that you can beat up on the opponents, kill them, and make them start back over at their castle and you have a game with lots of multiplayer goodness. I just hope they include the capability to voice chat with your teamates so you can coordinate together and help each other.;title;4


I thought she had your colouring...

Dear ____________

Dear Geist Family,

Your boxes are huge! I cannot fit them in my car!




Dear Coworker,

I don't want to hear your sob story of why you're not going to "risk your child's life" just because it is snowy/cold/icy out. If you're not coming in, just say: 'I'm not coming in today'.



P.S. If you continue to send these emails I will request that you insert violin music.


Dear pushy lady trying to make me look bad,

Keep trying, you just look weird and pushy to everyone.




Dear Landlord,

Please remove my f*&#^ing snow from my walkway or I'm coming for you.




Dear Car,

Please stop all of this 'I refuse to start' nonsense. It's getting old, and I will trade you in. Don't make me threaten you again!




Dear Executive Man,

Stop looking at me in that weird way, it's creeping me out.

Stupid questions of the day

Me: ::eating my sandwhich::
Coworker: Are you eating lunch?
Me: ::blank stare::


Random lady walks by desk and see's my jar of peanut butter:
"So you like peanut butter?"
Me: ::blank stare::


Boss Lady: Do you want to go to lunch?
Me: ::blank stare::


Me: ::shooting a training video::
Coworker: Oh are you doing the training videos?
Me: ::blank stare::


To sum up people ask me a lot of dumb questions. I also should never consume Nyquil on a work night.

Weekend snipets

Early Saturday morning:

ML: "Knock Knock"
Me: "Who's there?"
ML: "Interrupting Cow"
Me: ::Pause, says quickly:: "Interrupting Cow who?"
ML: ::Inaudible sound trying to interrupt but doesn't make it::
Me: ::Snickers::


Saturday night:

After winning two huge poker pots in a row...

Me: "I thought you were going to take my money?"
ML: "You just wait...Knock knock"
Me: "Who's there?"
ML: "Interrupting Cow"
Me: ::Thinking, seriously? repeats above::
ML: ::Repeats above::
Me: "You're not very good at this joke"
ML: "Yeah..."



Me: ::glances at the score of the Eagles/Giants game:: "Oh I guess the Giants did sco.."
ML: "Score a field goal?"
Me: "Yeah, it's 11-10 so I guess the turno..."
ML: "The turnover wasn't completely wasted?"
Me: "...get out of my head please"
ML: ::chuckles::*

Me: -Barbie movie preview comes on- "Ooooh this is the movie you've wanted to see eh?"
ML: "I get to pick next!!"
Me: ::Makes inappropriate Barbie and her best friend lesbian comment::
Movie: Shows Barbie and her friend going in for what we were sure was a kiss but settle for a hug.
ML: "ooooh they almost kissed, she was too nervous"
Me: "HAH!"

To sum up: Larry has been unsuccessful with knock knocks, I kick ass at poker and Barbie is a closet lesbian...or something.

*Perhaps making up for the knock knock joke?

So you knew I would have pictures of the food as well right? I mean I wouldn't disappoint you guys like that! I made the famous octopus stew for our little dinner party, which was a huge hit, although next time I'll make a few adjustments. We also had a hot crab dip, fresh shrimp scampi, a spinach and artichoke dip and mini cheese cakes for dessert.

So enjoy some of our fun pictures!!

ooh looky at how long the Octopus is!

Joseph watches me tenderize!

Joseph's turn to tenderize!

Larry shows us how a man does it.

Mmmm look at all that octopus!

It cooks down like mushrooms!

It's done!

Our beautiful table!

Mmm Cheesecake!

Did ya miss us?

Hello all!

I fully recognize that I have been a slacker but I also fully recognize that I don't care! It was above and beyond fun being with our little family for ten days. We all sort of fell into a nice and easy rhythm with each other. And best of all it all happened naturally. We decided what we wanted to do every day, because our children are nappers our days are broken into two parts morning times and afternoon/evenings. Overall we had a blast!

We took the kids to the park, to Pump it up, Bowling/roller skating, to the museum. Which basically means we're the coolest parents ever! We even made bird feeders!

We had a very nice Christmas together. Actual Christmas day we flew into PNS, and had to file a lost luggage claim...whoops! Then we drove home and on the way the airport actually called me back to say they had found my luggage, somehow it ended up in Orlando, but we prayed about it and God found it! Then Larry had made an absolutely delicious Lasagna for dinner and we had some friends over, it was nice and relaxing.

Our Christmas was Saturday night/Sunday night. We opened presents on Saturday because knowing the kids they would never sleep with unopened presents under the tree. I received some lovely presents from Larry including the Once DVD and sound track, plus a very thoughtful gift of a DVD movie with our pictures on it. Joseph's big presents included a Handy Manny drill/saw that you can use the little tools to fix when it's broken, a wicked race car track and a Walle DVD from Ava, which he almost leapt over the ottoman to hug her. Ava received some very cool Little people toys and a Wow Wow Wubbzy DVD. Larry received some homemade presents from me including two different scrapbook type presents and a homemade scarf. But his most famous present the one I referenced in an older post was I adopted a wolf for him. So he has a certificate and picture and a little wolf stuffed animal. Also 2 years of the Family Handyman.

For New Years we were pretty low key, we grabbed a pizza with the kids and came home and watched Walle together. Where I, managed to successfully shush the kids three times since I apparently like it more than they do! Then Larry and I watched Episode 2 & 3 of the new Star Wars movies. I did not care for Episode 2.

The way home was absolutely dreadful. Spending those ten days together in what seemed so much like all of our home was the hardest thing to leave. There was much crying and tissue usage. Then, I accidentally forgot my keys at Larry's house along with my jacket, and we were stuck in Atlanta for 6 hours. But I wouldn't change a single thing.

And now enjoy a myriad of pictures:

Question of the day...

If you're only using one knife would you rather risk getting Jam in your Peanut Butter or Peanut Butter in your Jam?

-Note- And yes I do mean Jam as I happen to think Jelly is disgusting.

Ava and Max

Ava is in love with baby Max...and apparently she likes to rob the cradle, literally.
