Quote of the day - Albert Einstein

I have a new personal mantra. I think that I will have this put on posters and plaster my office walls.

Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. ~ Albert Einstein

So, I woke up at 4:00 a.m. today and was convinced I had died and gone to hell. It was so hot in my house that surely Lucifer himself had to be in residence. I've always thought I was basically a good person, so I was a little surprised to find myself in the pits of Hades.

After my head cleared a bit I realized that the air conditioner had gone out. I should have know it. Even hell couldn't be as hot as Texas in the summer with no central air.

Thank goodness the repair company that we called was able to come out quickly and get it running again. It wasn't even that expensive a repair. Of course, I would have paid any price just to get that wonderful cold air blowing again.

Now, pardon me as I go dowse myself in water and lay under a vent with a glass of ice cold lemonade.

The New Man in my Life

I have a new man in my life. He is short. He has a pot belly. He sits around in the nude all day. He has poor bladder control. And I love him with all my being.

Meet the newest member of my furry family, Rocket the shorty Jack Russell Terrier.

My new baby, Rocket

Adventures in Commuting

On my way home from work yesterday I stopped for gas. Not exactly an unusual occurrence, until a limousine pulled up to the pump next to me. Obviously limos need gas, too. You just don't expect them at a tiny little gas station in the middle of nowhere.  On this particular stretch of road it is usually me, a bunch of big pick-up trucks, and lots of rock haulers & dump trucks. Cool change of pace!

Proud Mama - My Puppy is a Feminist!

I am so proud of my little dog!  We were having a quiet family evening at home a couple of nights ago. My pup, Piglet, was curled up in my lap being very sweet and peaceful.  I don't remember the show we were watching, but the scene took place in a busy office building. A man walked into the office, took over, motioned to the one woman in the room and said, "Grab us some coffee".

Piglet immediately jumped to her feet, looked at the television, and growled. As soon as the man walked out of the room she laid back down. But for the rest of the show every time he came on screen she jumped up and started growling at him.  I am so proud of her for looking out for a sister!  My girl may be just a pup, but it looks like I am raising her right!

So, my goal for the week is to take after my pup. If I see anyone being treated as 'less than', I am going to growl.  Um, I mean call attention to it.  If they don't pay attention, then I'll growl!

Texas Comic Fest is today!

At long last, Texas Comic Fest is today!  I was doing a quick surf of the internet before I head out to finish set-up, and discovered that we made the Dallas Morning News list of Top 20 things to do in Dallas-Fort Worth this week-end! To say that I am excited is a wee bit of an understatement!

The story is available here.
