looking for a job?
my company is looking to fill a few positions for account coordinators and application engineers. if you or someone you know might fit the bill please let me know ASAP!

one of my pet peeves...
i'm so sick of hearing people ask couples, "so, when you are you guys going to have kids??" why not just ask "so, when are you guys going to have sex?" it is a personal issue and it is so rude and inappropriate to ask about it no matter how close you are to someone. you don't know what their situation is, maybe they are having fertility issues, maybe they had a miscarriage, maybe they are having marital problems? if a married couple doesn't have kids either they have decided not to right now or they're having a problem, either way it is no one's damn business and it is only going to make them feel bad to have to discuss it. if you think they've decided not to & that you will change their minds by harassing them about it, i really think people should have kids because they are ready & want to, not just to get everyone to shut up and stop asking about it.
i've seen friends of mine in all of the above situations asked about it practically every day and it pisses me off to see them have to keep smiling and make up some answer to avoid the discussion that has no place in everyday conversation. i can't wait until i get married and people start asking me that, i'm going to make up some answers to make them as uncomfortable as possible. mind your own business & if the person wants to discuss it with you, they will bring it up on their own.

summer is not over.
ok really it is usually still warm until at least october, yes, even here in new england. people always seem to forget this. if you are a kid or a teacher and you have to go back to school, then yes, summer is over, but for the rest of us, the one perk of not having summers off is that nothing changes the day after labor day, so as long as the temperatures are in the 70s it is still summer to me. so :P!
i had a great summer so far - jason and i had a nice tour of eastern canada, we took the CAT ferry from ME to nova scotia, spent a night in halifax, then took another ferry to PEI. there we met up with his family, i got to experience a cow show, and then we were on to new brunswick to spend a few days at jason's parents' house in keswick. a few weeks later we had a nice little vacation with my parents, jeremy, and jen in myrtle beach. hopefully my tan will last a few more months!! hope everyone has had a nice summer and enjoys THE REST of it!!

joke of the week
i dunno... this made me chuckle...

Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven.

When they get there, St. Peter says, 'We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!'

So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.

Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St. Peter chains them together and says, 'Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!'

The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps. She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on .... very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin.

St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.

The happy woman says , 'I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?'

The guy says, 'I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck!'

more fun with the gubment
As you may have heard the Bush Administration said each and every one of us would now get a nice rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will all go to the Arabs, if we purchase a computer it will all go to India, if we purchase fruit and vegetables it will all go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala, if we purchase a good car it will all go to Japan, if we purchase useless crap it will all go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.

The only way to keep that money here in America is to buy beer, since those are the only businesses still in the US. Drink up and be merry!


(personally i will be using it to pay off my ridiculous tax bill so it goes right back to dubya anyway. oh well!)
