High Fives

Friday, October 28, 2011

Well, nothing too exciting this week, really, but I thought I'd share with you a little something that was forwarded to me earlier in the week.

If you know me at all, you know how much I love high fives. High fives are great for congratulatory events, but I never thought to use them this way ...

This is for the day when everyone you encounter is stupid, can't do their job, or asked a question that you've already answered. For those days in the future I will urge you to remember this post, in hopes that it will give you a little chuckle, and not actually inspire you to follow through with it's words.

Happy Friday!

I've been thinking a lot lately about change. Specifically, how you know when it's time for change. Do you only make changes if it's a BIG difference, or is it okay to make minor changes?

Similarly, "if it aint broke, don't fix it." I can think of many ways that this does apply, but, if it's not broke and you still desire change, is that ok?

I'm a big list maker. So, I suppose the only way this might be solved is with a list for the old, and a list for the proposed "new." Over to the drawing board we go.

Onto the Next Adventure

Friday, October 14, 2011

I've been daydreaming a lot lately about another trip abroad.
My first trip was to Greece (Athens and Santorini) for our honeymoon.
It was an awesome trip, and so mesmerizing to see all the ancient monuments of the Greek Gods.
There is nothing that I have seen in the United States that even compares.


There are so many other places that I want to see around the world.
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to decide.
Some of the places that I want to visit are...
Ireland, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, Italy, and Switzerland.
(Not necessarily in that order.)

Let me know where you think our next adventure should take us.
The only requirements are ...
1. Overseas
2. Not Greece
3. Great food and drink

Happy Friday!

Amputation by Elevator

Monday, October 10, 2011

Thought of the day:

Why are we (and by we I do not mean me) in such a rush that we must stick our limbs in closing elevator doors, so not to have to wait for the next one? I mean, really.

This morning I was in the elevator, and when the doors were about four inches away from being closed a man sticks his arm in the opening. The doors open, he walks in, and we're on our way. So, I say to him (looking extremely frightened for his arm) "I don't stick my limbs in elevators." We continue to chat, and before walking out of the elevator he says "I'm not so dumb in my old age, am I?" I'm thinking "YES YOU ARE! You just stuck your arm in an elevator that was four inches from closing, and you're headed to physical therapy!" (I could tell this by the badge that he had on from the front desk.)

So, I got to thinking, how many people really lose their limbs from an elevator related accident!?

"In the study, conducted in 2002, the results showed that more that 11,000 victims have incurred an elevator accident injury from these unfortunate and disastrous incidents. This does not include the combined figures of 30 casualties yearly from elevator and escalator accidents."

Would you want to be one of the 11,000 victims of an elevator? My guess is, no. So, next time you think you're in a rush, and need to catch that near departing elevator, step back, and take a breath because there will surely be another elevator to service you in no time.

26 Days Until Halloween

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Let's get one thing straight, I don't do Halloween. Period.

Dave and I, however, have made an agreement that "every other year*" we'll dress up. So, this year Dave's idea is to dress up as characters from one of our guilty pleasures Jersey Shore. As Pauly D and Vinny did on a recent episode, Dave would like to wear this.

The other day, he tells me that he'll really need to work on his shoulders and arms more so he can "fit the part." Uh, ok. Then he sends me the link again, and says "the white one in extra large please..." Well at least he said please ... but really!? Continuing, "...we both know how much you like to buy stuff online."

Well, Mr., we'll just see how much more online shopping I do for you!

*To be clear, last year was the "every other year" to dress up for Halloween, lucky for me we had a wedding to attend, and I got out of it. So really this year I shouldn't have to dress up, right?! Right, because I really don't see myself as a Snooki, J Wow or Sammy. However, Dave might argue with the latter...
