Call me Picasso.

I mentioned before that I decided to paint the in-laws mailbox and have kept it in the dark till now. If I was smart, I'd be able to show you the before and after picture. If being the important word! I painted the mailbox about 9 years ago and put a big fish on it. It was looking really worn down so I knew it needed an update. The hardest thing was deciding what to paint on it. That was, until I saw the peacock on the porch. I knew right away that the update was going to be a peacock. Overall I'm super happy with how it came out. Especially considering that I don't paint :o) I'm thinking of going into the mailbox painting business now....anyone else need an update?

Doggie Dash

Today was the SPCA Doggie Dash and Whisky and I were proud participants. There were TONS of dogs and TONS of people! I had fun seeing all the great danes and the english bulldogs. Whisky had fun getting two containers of frozen yogurt.

Once he had the yogurt the rest of the day was a blur! I'll load all the great photos from the day on Flickr tomorrow!

The Furminator!

Due to the tremendous amount of dog hair that Bill and I find in the house we decided to break down and buy ourselves a furminator. If you haven't seen these yet, they are some high tech thing that looks just like a comb on a handle. Too high tech for me to comprehend. We've had it for about a month now and I must say that it does remove more hair than any of our other brushes did. This is the pile I got from one brushing last night.Piles have definitely been bigger, but nothing like they show on the ads for the brush. As for how much hair we find in the house....still massive! It is amazing that Whisky actually has hair on his body. I get piles about 6 times bigger than this with one vacuum session. Keep in mind we only have carpet in the dining room and hallway! I would still recommend the furminator, but I do highly recommend buying it on Ebay...you can get it sooo much cheaper that way.

Sleep to dream....


Well, if I could sleep! Two nights this week I have suffered from insomnia. Why does that always come in groups? As if one sleepless night weren't enough?! Monday I went to bed and woke up at 3:30am. I never really fell back asleep. Tuesday night I did sleep but I woke up feeling as if Mike Tyson had crept in during the middle of the night just to kick my ass. My ear was still in tact though so I knew that was not the case. Last night I woke up to the dog shaking his head at 2:00am. At that point the mind started racing and sleep feel by the wayside. I tried counting sheep, I tried counting water aerobics moves as if I was teaching, I tried counting the ticks of the clock. I moved to the sofa and watched some tv, then climbed back in bed around 4. I did fall back asleep but woke up every half hour or so until the alarm went off at 5:45am. Today I feel tired, I have blurred vision and I could cry. I wish I could set up a bed in my file cabinet.

Me love cookie!

Last week I took a trip to one of my favorite thrift stores, The Desert Industries. This place is HUGE and has really really good prices. First I scoured the clothing racks and lucked out with two Old Navy shirts, some Old Navy capris and a Michael Kors dress for $4! Aside from that I only found one little trinket that I gave to a friend, but overall it was still a very successful trip. One of my favorite things about Desert is their huge selection of furniture. I never buy it, but there are always some groovy items. My favorite was this couch.This thing was in fantastic shape! It was already sold....for a mere $25! With it's fuzzy blue fabric I thought it looked like Cookie Monster. I think I'd have to put two eyes on it and put it in a kids playroom. Cause you know, I have such a huge house that there is a kids playroom!

Dear John,

With all the blogs I read, let's just say there has been a mention or two about the cute new King and Queen stamps that USPS is selling. I just ran out of stamps and thought I better get my hands on these cute stamps before they are gone. Not only do they have the adorable King and Queen stamps but there was also a Simpson's stamp! Now I better start writing some letters so these don't all go to waste on bills.

Long Night


This morning when I got up to feed Whisky I noticed that he looked rather "tired." When he came back to bed after breakfast, the hubby noticed the same thing. It was then that I realized both of his eyes were puffed up. It was a sad sight, but funny at the same time because it looked like he had just gotten up from a tough night of partying with little sleep. The other sad part was realizing it was Memorial Day and any vet visit would be classified as emergency thus costing at least an extra $100!


Luckily, I have discovered a blessing that is the UC Davis Veterinary Clinic. Their emergency staff is super nice and will give you a consult over the phone. I did this once with Louie and they were dead on just from listening to me describe what was going on....with not a dime spent! I called them and explained what was going on with Whisky and they advised that he was probably having an allergic reaction from a possible bite and to give him Benadryl. If it didn't work, then bring him in. I'm happy to say it worked! After just a few hours the puffiness started to disappear and now you can't even tell. Thank heaven for the UC Davis Vet Clinic and for over the counter Benadryl!

Crowbar

Yesterday when I got home I noticed a black mass on the front walkway. As I got closer I realized it was a crow. Although it was big I could tell from the feathers that it was a baby...and it couldn't fly. This is the second time that I've seen this happen and there is just something so helpless about the situation. Especially considering how many outdoor cats live in our neighborhood. The only good thing the baby has going for him is his mama who is up in the tree and creates quite a racket when you get too close. She'll even swoop down at you.

Apparently if you ask my hubby he's the new pet and I've named him crowbar.

I love crafts!

Today I went to Handmade Parade with Amy to check out the vendors and see if there is some groovy stuff we haven't seen before. We definitely did! Hopefully we'll see some of them again down the road. I definitely spent my fair share of money and even had to borrow $2 from Amy. Hopefully she doesn't stalk me on her BMX screaming "I want my two dollars!" I seriously hope you all know what movie that is from!

If you've followed the blog for a while you will know that last xmas and bday I got some steampunk jewelry. I wear the necklace and ring alot and always get a ton of comments on it. There was a vendor at Handmade Parade selling some of the greatest steampunk so I completed my collection and got a bracelet!

This was made by Grouse and Badger. They had other excellent stuff so I am sure that my collection is FAR from over!

Where's Mary Poppins....


when you need her? My house has been in DIRE need of serious spring cleaning. I always keep a pretty clean house, but I don't do detail cleaning very often. I took today off to do just that. I rolled my butt out of bed and got to work at 7:30am....I just finished 20 minutes ago. That's 9 hours of cleaning! My body feels like it has been cleaning for 9 hours. I managed to get rid of 4 HUGE trash bags of stuff. Then came the dusting, the sweeping, the mopping, the windows, the laundry and on and on and on. I seriously think I swept up at least an entire dog or two. My next dog is going to be one of those hairless things. I don't know how a dog can emit this much hair. I feel like I just had a 9 hour boxing match with dust bunnies....I'm happy to say I'm the heavy weight champion.

Do you have a library card?

I'm a big reader, well maybe a reader that reads in waves and then stops. Typically that is because I don't have any books to read. I have a hard time buying books. Now, I loooooove buying them but I don't love keeping them. It always feels weird to spend the money, read the book immediately and then find someone to give it to. I'm happy to say that I'm now the proud owner of a library card. Oh my goodness..have you been to the library lately? I haven't ever been a huge fan of the library either because typically when I go there I either feel overwhelmed or they don't have what I want. Now that we are in the new millennium the library is online. You can create lists of books you want and then request them when you are ready. Typically in a week the book is at the library waiting for you! That is fantastic! They also have books on CD and these little devices that look like an ipod and you just plug in your headphones and listen. Oh how I love you library of the new millennium!

Garden - Round Two!

So remember way back when I had this dilemma on what to do with my 30 or so tomato plants? Well....the answer was simple! Kill them. Once they were moved outside to "harden" they were cut down to 6 plants. Once they were put in the ground they were cut down to one.
See that little bit of green...that's the one remaining plant. It hasn't gotten any bigger...but it hasn't died either. It's a good thing it has that cage around it because after witnessing the carnage of its siblings I'm certain it would be running out of the garden right now. To make it feel less lonely, I went to the Home Depot to call in the backups.The backups are so big that I'm hoping it makes them impossible to kill. We'll see how it works out. On some other notes there are some things that are doing well in the garden.These are the yellow squash. Right now there are probably about 8 plants and each day they get bigger and bigger. Good thing I like squash!The pot is the home of a pepper (also bought from the H.D.) and it is doing quite well and growing daily. I put him in his own pot because he is spicy and I didn't want him heating up the rest of the garden. If you look in front of the pepper you will see two rows with green. The left sprout is the yellow squash that we have already discussed, the one on the right is our pickle bush. Yep, almost killed those too! I think right now we have three that are hanging on by one root. We put more seed in the ground though so hopefully those will pop up and give us more plants.And finally...the dill! I completely forgot to put dill over in the herb garden so I found a little corner of the main garden and literally just threw all the seed down and covered it with dirt. Voila...instant dill!

So, that's the status of the garden so far. Hopefully these new cheater plants will make it, otherwise I've become the official garden serial killer of 2009! On a happier note the coffee grounds have successfully kept the kitties out of the garden. Well it's either the coffee or they have picked up on the fact that I am killing things and are fearful for their life. Also, our little rascal dog has stayed out as well. How do we do this? One piece of yarn. There is one silly piece of yellow yarn that is going around the garden. Keep in mind it's only about 6 inches off the ground and is a sport weight. To Whisky it is like kryptonite. He will not go under or over anything. If you throw a ball and it runs into a bush...he will not forage in and get it. Under the table? Same thing. He's such a little pansy!

More buttons!

My friend Melissa has turned out to be incredible at finding things that I absolutely love when she goes to thrift stores and garage sales. I've scored a whole family of Mr. Men/Little Miss dolls and a big bucket of buttons. When we went garage sale shopping last weekend she handed over yet another bucket of buttons!It's actually a big beef jerky container...no worries, the buttons don't smell like jerky. The buttons are all fabric covered in some of the greatest 70's looking fabrics I have ever seen. They are all shank buttons and I don't want to remove the shanks because I think they would make some awesome bracelets. Only thing, I don't have a pattern for what I'm imagining.Do you have any recommendations for this fantastic buttons??

More garage sales!

This weekend I went with my friend Melissa to a big neighborhood yard sale out in the Rocklin/Roseville area. When I say big I mean over 200 homes selling there stuff. It was pretty fantastic! Here are just some of the things that I got.The Olympia Beer stein matches perfectly with the Olympia Beer casserole dish I got last time I went out shopping. Now I can have my beer and chips in style. I got two cool Pyrex dishes. The red is my favorite and in fact was given to me free when I bought the stein. Lastly, I just couldn't pass up these cute San Francisco souvenirs. I have a spoon rest almost exactly like this that has vegetables on it and I can't wait to swap it out for the new SF one. Soo cute!

OUCH!


One thing I can highly advise....if you have a side table next to the bed and it's higher than the bed watch out when you plop down. When they say you will "see stars" they really mean it!

Dungeons and Dragons


Lately I have been thinking that I want to start using the library. There is one very close to my work and when I need something to read it would be nice to check out a book instead of buying one. I'm not a book collector and don't keep books so it always feels silly buying them and yet there are always books I want to read. Going to the library is something I have not done in years and there is a very good reason for that. I am apparently on the Most Wanted list for overdue library books. The story gets better.

Approximately 13 years ago I went to the lake with a friend and we decided to lock our purses in the trunk of the car where they would be safe. Much to our surprise when we returned, the side window was smashed and our purses where MIA. At the time I was just a wee 20 year old so I pretty much had an atm card and one credit card which I quickly cancelled. Shortly after this I moved away to Boston for a year.

Almost three years later, after I moved back to Sacramento, I decided to go to the library one day. I was in a "read the classics phase" and I knew they would have the book. I didn't have a library card anymore, so I went to the desk to sign up. That was when I was given the unfortunate news. I had an un-returned book and would need to pay the $75 fee before I checked out anything else. I was baffled. I couldn't even remember the last time I had checked anything out and I certainly didn't remember not giving anything back. So of course, I asked what the book was. "Dragons and Lore." I stood there baffled. I can safely say that in no time of my life have I been interested in dragons. Turns out, the purse bandits were interested in them and used my library card to check out this book and never bring it back. Who would have thunk?!

I haven't been back to the library since then, and I never cleared the matter up. It involved a detailed letter and at that time of my life I wasn't interested in writing it. So, I think next week I'll head back to the library and see if I can get myself off the hit list.

The Friday Bonus Post!


I've been following a new blog lately Little T Jane. This blog is full of the most adorable handmade crafts and ideas, I have been eating it up. Lucky for me and my new side kick Google Reader I was one of the first to learn about the Pay it Forward challenge!

Here's how it works.....the first three people to leave a comment on my blog will receive a little handmade giftee made especially by me! You will receive this gift in the mail by the end of June, I have to set deadlines for myself. You won't know what I am making for you until your snail mail package arrives.

In return, you post a Pay It Forward on your blog and do the same for three people! A fun way to swap some creative crafts.

Hope to see you Pay It Forward!

Mr. Postman, Bring me a knee.


Wow, who knew it would have been this easy! I could have just written a letter and all my knee problems would have been answered. I just hope he knows that postage went up when he replies.

Rolling with my gnomies!

I bet after you read the post yesterday you thought the gnome fest was over.....far from it! Earlier this week one of my favorite etsy sellers, The Dreamy Giraffe, was having a sale. I decided this would be the perfect time to buy my first print. Lucky for you she is still having the sale and you can also pick up some prints BOGO.


I've had this gnome print in my favorite items file for a while.



The cuteness is almost unbearable! I knew it would make the perfect addition to the photo wall in the bedroom.
I think the wall is finally complete......or is it?

Here's to my Gnomies!

On a recent Joann's trip I saw the cutest little gnome stakes and had to get them for the backyard. The front yard has become quite the gnome village already! We have this great spot in the corner of the yard that gets no sun and the prettiest moss grows there. It was the perfect spot! I absolutely love how these little guys look and want to find a little gnome home to put in the corner too.

Beautiful!


On Sunday we went out to Davis for a Mother's Day Lunner (what the heck do you call an early dinner/late lunch?) When we pulled into the driveway we instantly noticed that the neighborhood peacock was hanging out on the porch. What a perfect opportunity to take some pictures! Like a secret agent I stealthily snuck up on the peacock and snapped away. Actually, since it lives in a neighborhood it was pretty tame so I was able to get really close. This is by far the most gorgeous peacock that we've seen in the neighborhood. I wish I could see those tail feathers in full plume. In a couple weeks I'll be painting the mailbox out there and this is definitely giving me some ideas!

Cupcake Pops!


When I first saw the Cupcake Pops on Bakerella I knew that I had to make them! If you haven't been to her website yet you are missing out. I was supposed to do these for a friend's daughter's bday but something came up and I got sick so I was unable to do it. This week was my mother in law's birthday and with Mother's Day I thought it was the perfect time to give them a try. Oh my gosh, so cute! They definitely take time to make, but are very easy at the same time...just alot of steps. I'll definitely be doing this again in the future!

Oh, if you are wondering....they are DELICIOUS!

We interrupt this broadcast.....

for some more information! A couple questions have come in about the tattoo so I thought I would take just a moment to explain. I knew questions would come up, and I know that I will spend time the rest of my life answering "Um, is that a hanger?" or "Are you a dry cleaner or something?"

For those of you that have seen the movie Mommie Dearest it will make a bit more sense. Although, on that note you are now imagining my mom has had some sort of baby powder wire hanger rampage. That is not the case at all. Growing up though my mom was never a fan of the wire hanger. There were numerous occasions where we would swap out the laundromat hangers for plastic ones. Thus, I started calling her Mommie Dearest.....Mommie D for short.

I obviously like tattoos. I have no intention of covering my entire body and with each one I get I do think "this is it." At the same time, there have always been two tattoos that I've wanted to still get. One was in tribute to my mom and one would be in tribute to my child once I have one. I knew at some point I would get the wire hanger tattoo as a reminder to me of how much I love my mom. She doesn't live nearby and now I can't look at my wrist without thinking of her and smiling. I know to some that seems silly and why do it with a tattoo, but that's just who I am. It's the equivalent to me of a big heart on my sleeve that says Mom in the middle. As for what I will get for my child...you'll have to wait to find that out.

Happy Mother's Day

Whisky would like to wish everyone a Happy Happy Mother's Day! He is a true mama's boy and is sure that some of you out there are too!Also, I'd like to send a special Mother's Day wish out to my own Mommy Dearest in Florida. This flower is for you....
I love you Mommy Dearest and will hold you close and think of you every time I see the wire hanger.
Love you Mom!

Let's watch it grow!


The garden in finally in! I was certain that the pickles and tomatoes wouldn't make it. After a couple days outside they were looking worse for wear, but we managed to salvage enough. We put in two rows of tomatoes (6 plants total), one row of pickles (5 plants total-and yes I know they are cucumbers till we pickle them) and one row of yellow squash. We're also going to put one pepper plant in, but we're buying that at the store today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they make it out there...if so I better start figuring out what I'm doing with all these tomatoes.


Oh, and I thought I'd show you how the herb garden is going! All of the plants have AT LEAST doubled in size. I can start picking some cilantro and mint already so bring on the guacamole and mojitos!

Wall of Art

I am really having a good time with the bedroom wall. Our bedroom was always pretty darn boring and when I finally painted it it jazzed it up a bit. There was nothing on the walls though because I could never decide on just one picture. Now that I'm doing the photo collage it makes the room pop more and has a great mix of eclectic art that somehow seems to flow together. Or at least I think it does. What do you think? Ridiculous or cute? When is it going to be too much? I have two more pieces that I want to get on there and then I think I'm done....it's kind of addicting though. I recently added this great silhouette of Whisky done by RP and a great line drawing by one of our IndieSac vendors.Whisky fits perfectly between the ton of B S that is going on! hahahahah

Under Attack!

Each year we tend to get alot of bees in our backyard. Between the orange blossoms, lemon blossoms and honeysuckle blossoms it creates attraction for them. We've had a couple cases of hornets building nests above the sliding glass door and many bee attacks when Whisky's pool is set up. I hate it! I am not a fan of the bee. Now, don't get me wrong, I appreciate all the bee does and I sure do love honey but I am not a fan of the stinger. Last time I was stung in high school my finger swelled up to the size of a cucumber and I barfed my way to the hospital. I can only assume that I am still allergic.

The other day I was out in the yard and heard what sounded to be a ceiling fan flying around my head. I realized it was a bee. This was no normal bee though. This thing was BIG and it was BLACK and it was ready to ATTACK. It literally chased me around the yard. I'm sure this was an excellent site seeing how I can't run and I was screaming like a little girl. Each time I tried to go to the sliding door it would fly straight at my face. I was scared for my life.

When I told this story to Bill and one of Bill's friends I got the answer "Are you sure it wasn't a horse fly?" Now, it was definitely the size of a horse but this thing was not related to a fly at all. I've seen a horse fly and this thing would eat the horse fly if it wanted to.

Yesterday I went to go outside and there were three of these things hanging out by the honeysuckle. One being the monster that chased me and two more about half it's size. Lucky for me I have my new fancy 300mm lens and I grabbed it and tried to get a picture. I think they were camera shy because the minute it came out..they left. After much waiting the monster came back and I got a picture of him.
This picture does not even come close to showing how big this thing is. It's at least half the length of my thumb and I know that it could bite my head of if it wanted to. I am now fearful of the backyard.

Dog is my copilot!


I love driving in the car with Whisky, he's a good traveler and it's fun to watch him in the car. Typically he rides in the truck, it's much easier for him to get in the back seat and lounge on the long bench seat. Sometimes I have the other car and the front seat is his favorite spot. I limit this to just short trips because it's not so comfy for him when he wants to lay down. Man, he look so cute though sitting in the front!

We're getting closer!

This past Sunday we had high hopes of finally putting our garden in. There was no way that could happen with the rain so we had to push the planting until this weekend. I'm happy to report that my window starter plants are still growing strong! The tomatoes are on the right and the pickles are the two rows on the left. I think actually having an extra week to let them grow has worked out just fine. All that's left to do is add some coffee grounds into our garden bed in hopes that the kitties will stay out and then put in our plants. I hope they survive! The garden bed is waiting patiently for some clear sunny weather this weekend!

Yum Yum!


One of my favorite vendors at craft fairs are Oli's Products. Debbie has a gluten allergy and she and her husband Mike make delicious sauces. When I first saw them they just had a their sweet and spicy sauce, but the line has been branching out and now includes salsas and spaghetti sauce. Oli joined us for IndieSac and I was super excited to buy some of the new spaghetti sauce. On Sunday I had a craving for pasta at lunch so I boiled some noodles and dumped the sauce on top. Now typically when I buy jarred sauce at the grocery store I have to add stuff to it because it's typically pretty gross. Oh man, this was not the case with the Oli sauce! It was delish straight out of the jar and I was instantly bummed out that I didn't buy more. Lucky for me I have a special delivery of 6 jars coming this week. I don't think I'll ever buy grocery store sauce again! Oh, and I don't even like mushrooms but still think this is the best sauce ever.

WTF?!

Yesterday after IndieSac I was BEAT! I wanted to come home and run straight to bed, but decided that if I didn't unload the truck I would never do it. So, the hubby and I started unloading all the craft supplies. Once the truck was all empty I noticed something on the floor board. It looked like a piece of cardboard or something. Oh...it was something all right. Upon closer examination this it what I saw.Needless to say I dropped it quickly and screamed like a little girl. Oh, I knew it was dead but was freaked out none the less. I guess I must have picked it up the park. Ewww.

I know all of you are grossed out yourselves and thinking "Do I really want to read this blog?" So, I thought to end things I'd tell you a little story. See this snake reminded me of something and if you are my friend Kim you know exactly where I am headed right now.

In my early 20's (probably 10 years ago..yikes!) my girlfriend Kim and I rented a house together. It was a great house and I think we were both really proud of it. I think we both knew right away it was a great house to have gatherings in. It was roomy inside and had a HUGE backyard. Only problem was the backyard was a bit jungle-esque. So, before our housewarming party Kim and I went outback to bust our butts getting the yard all cleaned up. I was sweeping up and let out a little yell. Kim came over to find out why. Well I had found a snake. It was all curled up in a circle. Right away I realized that the snake was dead and poked it with the broom just to make sure. At that point we decided that it was pretty cool looking and we would put it inside in a plant and possible scare someone at the party. It was such a brilliant idea.

Later that night our friends Chris and Danny were sitting next to the plant. Kim says "Hey, did you see our new pet..he's in the plant." One of the guys picked it up (I can't tell you which one cause my memory is now failing me) and Kim said it was our new pet and we were calling him Fred (this may not be the name because again my memory is failing me.) We then start telling the story of how we found our fossilized friend in the yard and blah blah blah...the snake gets passed around the WHOLE ROOM. It finally lands in Danny's hands. Danny says "Well, I don't know why you would name it Fred when it should clearly be named China."

"China," we say, "why would we want to name it China?"

"Well, because it says China right here on the bottom!"

Needless to say our big plan to play a joke on our friends ended up being a big joke on us because the damn thing was a toy. He he, that story still makes me laugh. I wish the picture above was a toy.

IndieSac Rain Market!

Well IndieSac was today and I can't say that it went off without a hitch! It was very smooth planning and everything came together nicely. I finally decided to just get over the fact that all the forecasts were saying rain and just kept thinking 50% really meant a 50/50 chance. Then on Friday the news man said "If you have outdoor activities planned it will be great! You'll have clouds, but no rain." That guy was obviously on crack.

Amy and I arrived at 7am to start setting up and vendors started to roll in at around 8:30am. The rain then started rolling in at 9am and never stopped rolling until 2pm. Even with all the rain the event was fantastic! We had amazing foot traffic for a rainy day and I can only imagine what it would have been like if the sun had been shining. We had great vendors who I can't thank enough for sticking it out with us. It was awesome and I'm also so glad it's over and I have a little break!

I think this picture sums it up nicely. This was the line in the rain for the swag bags! We passed out 150 bags in 30 minutes. Thanks to my friend Roseanne for all her help, it would have been scary in that booth without you!

Hope to see you all at the next IndieSac in December-ish.

Trapped!

I know I have talked about the elevators at my office before, but I am still amazed the way people act in an elevator and the things that happen to me in the elevators. For starters, as previously mentioned, no one talks. There is a quick scramble by most to find something that can distract them and keep them from having to talk or even smile at anyone else.

Even worse....I've been stuck in the elevators here TWICE! Both times I was alone and thankfully both times the elevator hadn't left the floor yet so I didn't end up looking like this.Unfortunately, I was still stuck. What happened is the door closed, but actually stayed open just about a half an inch. I pressed alot of stop, open door, close door buttons but the elevator just sat there. So what I did next was cram my fingers into the opening and pretend I was She-Ra while I pried the door open. It was quite a site. The first time there was no one there when I opened the door so I wasn't embarrassed. The second time there was a man ready to pounce inside the opening elevator. He got a bit confused when he saw me there and said, "Uhh, are you going up?" First off, I'm on the first freaking floor idiot so I sure as heck am not going down! Second off, I'm not going anywhere in this damn thing! Those are all the things that evil Stacey would have said, but nice Stacey just said "Actually, I'm stuck in here and would like to get out and get in another elevator." So, what does the guydo? He just stood there waiting and watched while I finished prying the door open. No help, just waited and watched. Incredible.

Yesterday I got in the elevator with a group of 5 others who were all just returning from their lunch together. One man in the group was standing across from me and at first what I thought was a friendly smile actually ended up being a CREEPY stare since he continued to look straight at me. Luckily they were only going to the 2nd floor so it was a quick encounter. Unluckily this jack ass was LEANING AGAINST ALL THE BUTTONS! So, when they got out I had to stop at ever single floor till I got to mine.

Is it still called going postal if you do it in an elevator cause boy am I close!
