I’m going to try something new with Ramblings. I’m going to add pictures. I think it’s a nice touch. Translation: I don't want to do my homework, so I'm doing useless things to occupy my time.
Fall has arrived. It’s been in the 50s when I go to work, and 80s when I leave work. Fall always reminds me of NYC. I have no idea why. When I went to The Big Apple is was 20 degrees, about thirty degrees below my ideal weather conditions.
But it has been nice to have the cooler weather. Really, I can’t complain this has been the best summer. It really wasn’t hot. Speaking of hot, The Farmer’s Almanac is saying next year, 2008’, will be the hottest year of the century. Doesn’t that make you want to jump for joy?
So I’m doing the whole school thing again. Right now I’m taking two classes, one being Finance. Man, I am stupid when it comes to Finance. Last night I was working on my homework and it took me three hours. I spent a good hour searching my Finance book for an example of calculating the price of bonds. When I thought I’d solved the problem I yelled, “I’m a freakin’ genus!” Then about twenty minutes later, I found out I’d done it wrong. It was a real downer.
This weekend I am having a garage sale. I’m following Oprah’s advice. If I have not worn it in a year, it’s being put in the garage sale. There’s a lot I have not worn in a year. I have way too many clothes! I could cloth an African village. It’s shameful for one person to have so many clothes. But to be fair, most of the clothes I am selling I’ve had since high school. High school. I am in my mid-twenties; I believe they have gotten their moneys worth. I have a problem getting rid of clothes. I mean, what if they come back in style. Also they still fit, I don’t want to get rid of something that still fits. See why I have so many clothes. I can’t part with them. But I’m down sizing, and staying down sized. I promise I am!
My company is a new company. Old company sold us + new company buying us = NEW COMPANY! And guess what we decided to bring back? Cookie Tuesday! When I heard of this news I was so excited! For the new readers, Cookie Tuesday is where I get a cookie every Tuesday. It’s actually a huge deal for me, if you can’t tell. Ok, the truth in all this- the cookies are for a weekly meeting. After the meeting we can eat any leftover cookies. My goofy coworker and I just named it Cookie Tuesday, which caught on among other coworkers. But I’m way excited about Cookie Tuesday coming back.
Tomorrw The GREAT State Fair of Oklahoma starts. The Village People will be performing. I’m SO sad I can’t go. If I didn’t have class I would be all over The Village People concert. Who doesn’t want to see old guys sing and dance?
