Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?

Oh Illinois politics...what is wrong with you?

Well, good old Gov. Blago (who can really spell that?) is off to the politically corrupt races! And his odds for imprisonment look good! Seriously, how many ways can you be corrupt and not seem to care? Good luck with your efforts to stay out of jail.

In other news, this has just been a gray, boring, downer day! My biggest accomplishment has been re-doing a bulletin board here at work. And while it's very festive and glittery, it's not providing me a big whoop in my day.

Tomorrow I have 2, count them 2, Christmas parties. One is for a group I belong to that meets monthly (through work) and the other is for work, a dinner party. So what this means is, I can really only "eat" at one of them. They are both pasta meals with all the sides and desserts and what have you. So I plan on salading it up at the lunch party and then actually eating at the dinner party. We never get to leave the building usually for our work celebration, usually we have to cater it in during the lunch hour, which means a day of set up/clean up for me and a few other staff members (yay, Merry Christmas!) so this year I suggested a dinner. Well low and behold it was approved, but at the last minute, it was decided guests of staff members would have to pay for their dinners at $15.80 a pop. So it was almost full generosity, almost. God forbid we have one dinner paid for that allows us to bring a spouse or friend or whatever.

Seriously, I was just dandy this morning and then I went to lunch and something happened to me that put me in a bit of a foul mood. Not sure what it was, but it's hanging on! And we have band practice tonight and I still sound funky, so that should be worthless.

I'll try to find a little positivity before my next blog...sorry!

I know, sometimes your days just go down in a big ball of suck. However, that probably means that tomorrow won't be quite as sucky, and you have a visit with me to look forward to! :)

Please remind me that we need to go to Hobby Lobby...that'll get your engine going!
