That's Not Me

Randomness

This is an odd cold. The cold symptoms aren't that bad, I have no fever, yet I'm so tired! I went to my workout at RU yesterday and felt rather pathetic. Bryan is out for the week and I worked with Justin. Since I don't work with him regularly, he doesn't know me well enough to know that I can push through just about anything they throw at me. I felt like one of those contestants on The Biggest Loser on the first day of working out, where some of them just get going with the workouts, then start whining about how hard it is. That was me. I even tried to negotiate using lighter weights, but he just told me to push through. This is so not like me, but I'm also not feeling like myself, either.

Last night was also an office party. We celebrated three birthdays, including mine. It took me 2 hours to throw on some jeans, a blouse, shoes and apply make-up, just because the the fatigue. We celebrated at a little restaurant in the middle of an industrial/office park - Buds Louisiana Cafe. Yes, an odd location for a restaurant, but it was REALLY good, even for my foodie boss. Luckily, this was dinner and not an activity like bowling or roller skating. It was fun catching up with everyone and all of the office shenanigans. I didn't think to take my camera, but my boss made hats for the three of us birthday girls. Here's my hat:

Custom party hat.  An eye with running legs.


I ordered a few pictures from my daughter's graduation earlier this month. Look at what I received:

 Ummmmmmmmm, that' not my daughter!

At first I was thinking "WTF?"  Now I think this is sort of funny.  I called customer service and they think this guy probably received my daughter's pictures.  They're going to reprint my daughter's photos and send those out ASAP, and told me to destroy the incorrect photos. I feel kind of odd about destroying the pictures, though.  The guy's name is on the back and I was thinking of, perhaps, contacting him (though Facebook, maybe) and just sending him the pictures.  They're not cheap.  What do you think? 

The gophers are going down. Three more heads of almost ready romaine lettuce are gone! It's time for traps.

I should have an abundance of veggies by now. Evil gophers...

You are such a nice person! I think most people would just toss them. Unless it was of some handsome guy..haha.

I think that's a very thoughtful thing to do also!
Hope the fatigue abates...

I would try to find him too. It obviously was a big day for him and his family and you would really make their day again if you did that.

Nice new design.

While I'm not an advocate (sp) for killing animals, I say go ahead with the gopher slaughtering. LOL

I wouldn't destroy the pictures you were sent. I think doing what you suggest is a good idea. Go for it. What the heck!

I am still laughing about the photos. I would have been mad at first then laughed. I think I would try to get his pictures to him too, why not.

Go get them gophers!

I love, love, love the custom party hat! I am also marching out to my garden to take pictures of my gopher massacre. I also have corn that has only grown a few inches and is already forming the corn itself. I have weird garden ju-ju going on this summer.

I'm glad you took getting the wrong photos in stride. kinda funny indeed. I'd try to send them to him if you can. :-)

Time to evict the gophers...

Aka Alice said...

Yeah...I'd try to contact the guy. That's looks like a doctorate hood, a pretty big deal.

Bummer about the cold. Rest up and get better. We gots some runnin' to do!

Irene - what are you feeding your daughter? Or is she leadng a secret life? Ha ha! At least you got the photos. We ordered my daughter's High School graduation photos when she graduated (four years ago) and we never received them! We finally went back to the photographer and got it straightened out - two years later when my son graduated. Yikes!

Glad to se you've decided to get serious with the gophers. That used to be one of my chores when I was a kid....

Black Knight said...

No, please, don't kill the animals. Give them a little of lattuce. Be careful to train if you are sick. Your "daughter" doesn't look so pretty.....
Anyway I have just put 2 bat boxes under the roof.
