I'm a mom. I'm a civil servant. I have a sense of humor, and I'm not afraid to use it.

Hey! I'm a Mustang!

Other than the fact that I really don't like Fords, this is pretty cool.

I'm a Ford Mustang!

You're an American classic -- fast, strong, and bold. You're not snobby or pretentious, but you have what it takes to give anyone a run for their money.

"Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

And I will get back to blogging again soon. I just need to find a time to blog that's not during the work day. Especially since I'm supposed to be learning my new job, and the lovely State of California is considering cutting jobs again. Probably wouldn't look too good to TPTB if my post publishing times were during the 8:00AM to 5:00 PM that I'm supposed to be diligently earning my $6.55 per hour.

Nothing new happening here . . .

Still earning $6.55 per hour, according to Arnie.

The lovely, wonderful Controller Chiang is still giving Arnie the finger, letting everyone know there is no way he's going to comply with the order.

I think he should run for Governor. I'd certainly vote for him.

Work is good. Kinda boring, but good.

The kids are doing great. School starts on the 20th, and I'm sure Hubby-dear is counting the days. He's been stuck at home with both kids these past two weeks. Although, he swears they're complete angels until I come home.

Figures. I only see their demon-side. Must be something I did while they were in-utero. Probably all the scary books, movies, and TV I watched. Hubby did warn me, but I refused to listen. Damn.

Still trying to get a taste for red wine. Hasn't happened yet. And I realized last night that Hubby doesn't really like to kiss me after I've had a glass. He's not a big red wine fan, either. Grrrr.

OH!!!! I almost forgot. I had some friends from jr high/high school over this weekend for a bbq. One of my best friends, whom I've known since 8th Grade, married her HS sweetheart 15 years after they lost touch with each other. I had band with her hubby when we were in jr. high. I didn't really interact with him, but I knew exactly who he was. Even 15 years after graduation, when BFF told me he got back in touch with her, I could describe him to a "t". Anyway, come to find out, the reason we didn't interact with each other in band was because I was part of the "Bitch Clarinet Section".

Oh. My. God.

I was a bitch!

Not only that, according to BFF's hubby, BFF and I were part of the "popular crowd".

Can you believe it????

I was popular, and I wasn't even able to enjoy it!

I always just thought I was a band-geek. Or, one of those "smart kids". You know - the pocket-protector crowd.

I suppose, to kids even geekier than I was, I must have seemed popular.

Who knew????
