Back to work… bleh

I took yesterday off. Had a sore neck. One of my co-workers suggested that it was a result of me getting jerked around. There may be more truth to that than they realize. Looks like the white smoke has risen. We now have a new Pope.

Yesterday the dogs were arguing in their igloo. Back and forth, back and forth… and all this while I’m trying to catch a nap. I finally capitulate and pull my weary ass off the futon to investigate the reason for this war of the bitches.

He would have made it across the street too … if he had not decided halfway to double back – 3 feet infront of the truck. …

It has all those products that make life a dream. I went to Monterey a few weeks ago and there is an entire store dedicated to these “AS SEEN ON TV” stuff. * Also came across this article about sex in college from collegehumor.com. * …
