off to Rhode Island after work tonight to celebrate my step-father's birthday with my family. My sons are already there with mom. God I hate that 2 hour drive. Hopefully the weather holds up. Tomorrow night they are having some huge barbeque and I was supposed to make a cheescake. Well, I screwed up and the crust burned. It's all a learning experince, less butter next time and never ever try to do 2 (or 4) cakes at once. I tried a piece anyway (well since I obviously wasn't bringing that one down) oh man it was amazing.
So the bosses nephew made yesterday his last day. I have to say I am kind of sorry to see him go. He made me laugh, and well definitely livened up the department. Who knew we would get along so well when he first started in this department? He decided to take what's left of the summer off. Good for him (I wish I could do that hehe).
So I am totally alone today, my boss is out and as I said the kid "quit" yesterday. It's kind of slow here .. Friday's usually are. I guess I don't have much to else to report.
So here are some fun
(and somewhat interesting) factoids:

I knew about he non-dairy creamer thing. It was one of the few experiments in biology class that made me pay attention. I used to show how it's done at parties, too. Me: always a blast. Anyway, hope you have a great weekend at the beach.

I'd love a vacation. Being unemployed does not count as a vacation, especially when you're as busy or busier than when you're employed!

I've totally tried the apple thing to wake me up in the morning and it didn't work. Perhaps if I had washed it down with a cup of coffee... hmmm
