Welcome back. This is the part of the locker room where you can sit and chat and chill for a while without offending or being shushed. Maybe you wanna watch a dvd or listen to your mp3. Yes, I rhymed. Something on your mind, post it! Random question, ask it? Hijacking is allowed and encouraged. Join the party, troll around, have a beer. It's cool. All are welcome, but please leave all BS in the hall. 

there are some days at work when i'm just not in the mood to hear the reverberated digestive pyrotechnics that emanate from the men's restroom, from my desk. most days are those days, actually.  today it's just making me giggle and somebody is really sick)

Leigh, you should wear your poison ivy mask to work.   

Peace.
i should for the proximity to the men's room alone. i swear it fecal-snowed here the other day (look it up folks. "fecal snow" is the only thing i retained from geography. it happens in mexico city.)

the jesus sign made me choke.

i am officially off my supplements from my diet and i feel the way red must have felt about peeing in the shawshank redemption. it's just hard to eat without taking them.

     my soulmate comes in to my office every few days. he's this beautiful black boy with one of those dumb looking harden mohawks and he comes to use my phone to work on getting assistance with his pending eviction.
     our friendship started about two months ago, the day he got an interview with a social worker around here but had no ride. i admit i hesitated and i thought about my stupid decision to trust all that night, but i agreed to give him a ride the next morning. when i got to work, he was dressed in what must have been the nicest things he owns (he'd kept them flat and smelling so nice for the special occasion that he'd need them. it tickled my heart that this was that occasion) and he'd gotten the stink off his skin...just for an interview to ask for money.
     well, i was of course late getting to work and my coworkers seeing this black man in the parking lot, immediately began to interrogate him. i hate that i was late that day. chris on staff refused to let me take him. refused right in front of patrick like he wasn't there. i almost peed myself, but i told chris (whom i like a lot and respect fully) that he basically could go suck a bag of eggs and that i was standing by my promise. at the fear of losing my job, i ended up taking chris with us and the church would not allow me to come back to work if i went to pick patrick up from this interview 11 miles away. patrick and i found out that second part while we were en route. i was pretty horrified by all of this and was sure i wouldn't have patrick coming around for this bitch's "help" anymore. but he did. the next day. and he just started talking.
     he lives in the seedy apartments my office window looks at, with two lesbians and their very young baby (i don't ask questions), one of which is "certifiable" and both of which aren't working or contributing (positively) in any way to the living. patrick (my sweet love boy) is from arkansas and came here for recording technology. he works at popeye's chicken and takes a bus into the city for his classes all while bills aren't getting paid and these women are getting increasingly unhappier. his lights had been turned off weeks ago - the missuses were none to pleased and it turned into a gun-involved altercation. he's never owned a weapon. the morning after the gun issue, he came to my office and just told his story tiredly and on the verge of crying for at least an hour. "i can't talk to women." "everything i say, they hear wrong." "i did say something to her 1 about it, and now her 2 is livid." i just wanted to hold him when he told me all of this. i think i may be the only person in his houston world who actually listens to him. and i hate that. he's lovely. and he hurts.
      welp, after all the work he went to, getting pledges from churches and organizations in the form of money orders, the apartment had had enough of his s**t and handed his court summons and eviction notice to him for $1434 back rent, on july 3rd. i was in a particularly bad mood when he came in to tell me all this and in no mood to play the sympathetic card no matter how much my heart was telling me to. i went into my awesome 4th of july vacation and didn't think of him once. and i'm glad i didn't because there isn't one damn thing i can do for him, but offer sympathy and a blind eye to his phone and computer usage.
     he came in today for the first time since then! he'll be up to his balls in homelessness in a few days. but the good news is, the court, knowing he will never be able to pay the apartment $1434, cut it in half! those money orders, he never used, he can use them to pay that off completely! and the moochers bailed overnight! and he was smiling. so we sat and looked at his list of local assistance programs and nothing offers more than a day shelter. so i started looking online. as much as it hurt, i got him hooked up with a place north of downtown called harbor light who heard his story over the phone about going to school and they are so close to his tech school! they set up an interview on the spot, so patrick is probably out of class and going there now. and i have every bit of my heart pressing on his situation.
     the loveliest part of all, is harbor light has a men's chorus that is getting popular around these parts. when patrick mentioned to them that he is going to school for music, they got all giddy about having him around to contribute to the chorus musically and they hinted that if he represents what he described to them over the phone, he's a shoo-in for immediate move-in. the part that has made my leg hairs grow about a mile and that i've been telling all this back story for, is this: after he left and we hugged for the first and probably only time, i opened an email about a staff appreciation lunch on august 6. harbor light men's chorus is the entertainment.

my heart did the grinch thing. except, i've already got a pretty big heart, so it's kind of squished out into my other parts and i swear my rings feel a little bit tight.

what's the haps?

Busy days continue.  I saw The Lone Ranger this past weekend. My mother has lost her movie picking privileges for a while

Yoenis Cespedes

The HR Derby tag team of Chris Berman and Nomahhhh felt like listening in on the most uncomfortable first date ever.


I'm going to make some polls either later this afternoon or tonight to try and liven things up. I don't know about you guys but work has been nuts and it's hard to get too active on here. Plus it's summer time. I have excuses for everything

But there's no excuse for this.. Calm down, Jesus

Hello Qers, 

After a computer problem in middle of my transaction had me stuck at post office for over 2 hours this morning i am no longer interested in doing any more work today !   My monday night moment of joy was without a doubt ...

Mindyana Jones ..... oh my my 

   mmmhmmm heart


If you post pic's online from your smart phone and you haven't seen this stranger danger report you need to indecision indecision


I was never a big fan of the HR Derby so i don't watch it but it seemed to be fun for those who enjoy it and quite a show put on by the Oakland bomber Cespedes. For me all star break is boring and all star game being only thing worth watching during it. 



That is all !

ugh. just ugh.  I was going to rant about talks with your kids.. but I think it should be for everyone.

Let's not be stupid.. let's think things through.

Every action has a reaction.

you can do something 100 times over again and never get hurt, it's always the last one, the last time that will end it. 

Thrill seek all you want but know that if something happens to you, it's not just you that deals with the aftermath.

there is nobody to blame in situations like that..

just becareful.

kthxbye

Q'rs

Leeahh, your post pushed me right over the edge 
Laurel, no truer words were ever spoken than hug um while you have em
Today, I realized I have 2 mini men in my house, they shut the door when the go into the bathroom, they shut their door when they are getting dressed, I was asked to please knock before entering and Jack made mac n cheese on the stove all by himself, i can no longer "look down" when speaking to them..Jack comes up to my neck and another half a head and Joshua will be taller than me, i know for a fact they weren't that big before school let out....it makes me all weepy....


PEACE

I returned from being kidnapped.  frown

My bff and I had a good time.  We basically scrapbooked all weekend and raided redbox and netflix.  Katy Perry's Part of Me was fun.  So was Warm Bodies.  I enjoyed the dark comedy inserted into an otherwise romantic story of two kids who are forbidden to be together.

Howdy Q'lettes.  My kids "took" me to Grande Prairie today for the day.  Of course,  I drove, but it was their idea.  There was road construction almost the entire way, and the speed limit in these zones was 50kmh - 30 mph, or too f***ing slow.  I did not obey the speed limits.  I also didn't get any tickets.  

My daughter bought me a new shirt to wear for work at the golf course.  They both bought themselves a lot of stuff....a lot.  

Going back to the golf course tomorrow.

Yet another wonderful night for Bud Selig's new boring midsummer's classic.  Way to go Bud, I can now see the future of MLB being fans getting excited over that great "singles hitter" prospect.  NHL,NFL and NBA commissioners would be burned at the stake if their all star contests had that little offense.
