not the house life

I'm hustling up the marble stairs to my office with three fat files under left arm, purse hanging on same, and hot Greek soup (lunch) in the right arm. Usually I run up he stairs, but I'm wearing black suede high heels today. Something distracts me and all the black crows are flying in the air. The... Sign in to see full entry.

$ 10 hour no experience necessary

The sign read " Sign twirlers wanted $10 hour to start no experience necessary". Now when you go for the job interview to hold the sign that says "luxury apartments for rent cheap" what kind of experience would they have needed? Two arms? Baton twirling in the band???? Really there are signs... Sign in to see full entry.

Welcome Chi elements of Color

The children have holiday all week. I arrange Monday Tuesday to be half working at home, the rest of the week it's family party time. When I'm home I achieve far less.

Save the BEAVERS

They have the airconditioning cranked so high today it feels like Mammouth Mountain in December. Of course I didn't bring a sweater because it is almost eighty degrees outside. The Irvine Company is notoriously cheap about not running our air which is in one central unit for the building. Normally... Sign in to see full entry.

We are the lucky ones.

Happiness with oneself brings about good fortune. Every time I find money on the ground I give it to the nearest person and share the luck.

Roofpig wrote a loving piece about being good parents and I have the flip side reason why we all need to heed the advice. Yesterday we went to the JAMZ California Cheerleading Finals at Magic Mountain. It was raining and windy dry cold and there are no covered patios and comfortable seats. A cup of...

All quiet at the office. Yesterday Kevin (who sits across from me) was having a screaming day. He was yelling at appraisers, cursing at Underwriters, throwing papers at his staff and he was making me nutty. At work I never lose my cool - it only wastes time and defeats your ability to get what you... Sign in to see full entry.

A fourteen year old girl was killed last week in the rain. We didn't know her. My daughter wanted to find out where the bustop was.I put her off about the subject. Girls at her school were crying about it. I hesitated a few days about giving access to all the information. I said a prayer for... Sign in to see full entry.

Yellow Do Not Cross police tape strewn across the wet pavement. Ribbons shredded by last night's wind storm like an arm pierced by a nine millimeter bullet. Hanging around aftermath of violence, things back to normal. When I watched the news last night Channell 4 had a story. I never watch the news,... Sign in to see full entry.
