Monday already? Time has been zipping by. I have been so busy with work, training, and working on a training manual for the new job I'm supervising. I'm almost done. I turned half of it in to my director on Friday. We had a shower for a coworker Friday also, which was a lot of fun. I was in charge of the group gift. So, I decided to get a surround sound system off their registry at Target. She is always talking about watching movies, and thats something you don't buy for yourself.

When she opened it she seemed perplexed...."what's this? surround sound system? Ohhhh cool, that's neat" she seemed to have no idea what it was. I was like "coworker, it was on your registry!!" Apparently her fiance did it. She liked it, but didn't know it was on there.

I was mad, as I thought it was a pretty bad-ass gift!

Today on my desk was a thank you card. At the bottom "P.S. I can't wait to plan yours" I said I hope you don't go gray while waiting. Its so depressing to think about, and I'm fine until 15 people I know start getting married.

I was so excited to go see the hot air balloons lift off at the Hall of Fame food festival this weekend. Only, since it rains every day, they didn't take off. Bull. Shit. Instead we went to the bar where a friend was working. She gave us free drinks. Awesome.

Yesterday we went to manfriends grandma's birthday party. It was a suprise. And a white elephant. So, I gathered up some crap to pawn off on someone else. My first pick, I got the "eggwave" microwave egg containers. I'm not big on microwaved eggs. I had my eye on a nice cock that the woman who picked it seemed not to like. (rooster, you pervs) Someone actually picked the cock, and said "I'd like this nice wood cock". Which is obviously why manfriend's family is relatable to me.....they all referred to it as a cock, just like me.

Unfortunately I had to take the cock from the neighbor. In the end, I went home with said cock. It will have a place of honor in my home, despite many side deals trying to lure it away from me. Manfriend ended up with the John Travolta classic..."The boy in the bubble".....oh, and popcorn! His stepmom did however, give him the barset he traded for, and a very old woman took from him, and in turn she took from the old woman.

I've always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. It looks like a blast... though I'm sure I'd find a way to light my hair on fire.

Well your coworker is a bubble head because that is a kick ass gift!

I love white elephant parties. I've been known to bring alcohol, porn or chia pets.

ps. I'd so like that gift. It really kicks ass!

Maybe it was the mention of the word "cock" or maybe it's because I'm a blonde or maybe it's because I'm exhausted from working today after being at the Steelers Training Camp all day yesterday...but I'm lost.

Speaking of cock, I need to go finish my next post. ;)
