I had several phone numbers jotted down on my notepad at the office, and while dialing one of them I obviously included numbers from another contact because dialing 1.800.222.9100 did NOT get me to American Airlines. Gives a whole new meaning to 'Fly the Friendly Skies'! (Dial at your own risk)
Last week I discovered a coworker is a wee bit colorblind. I thought I'd be clever and create a politically correct term; Pigmentally Challenged. Turns out that phrase is already used and according to Urban Dictionary it sure doesn't mean the same thing.

I was just cleaning up all of my 'draft' posts and found this one from a couple of years ago. Late but still publish worthy!

I realize that this is a very bold declaration, claiming to be the recipient of the worst pick-up line ever uttered. I am absolutely certain that it is the worst come on I have ever heard myself, and he's had some pretty stiff competition. I spent my early twenties on the club scene of southern Virginia with five military bases within a 30 mile radius and and a questionable literacy rate, and this still beats them all. Lame, cheesy, inappropriate, even indecipherable, but nothing I've every heard compares to the absurdity of what this person asked. So here goes. After about 10 minutes of chatting with this guy and his female "friend from work' who was supposedly married to someone else but suspiciously affectionate with this guy, she excused herself to the ladies room. He leaned in and asked, "So Reese, what would you say if I wanted to do things to you that would make your pussy hurt"? So basically he threatened my vagina. But he wasn't being malicious at all. In some twisted dysfunction rationale, he actually thought that this would sound intriguing. So without batting an eye I replied "Let me make it very, VERY clear that I am in no way shape or form interested in your offer. But I have to ask you, sociologically, what in the WORLD would make you think it was okay to say that to me"? He explained that he likes to live life by his own rules, and I seemed so upbeat and open that he got the impression I would be okay with it. I told him he needed to work on his perception skills, and in the future to never, ever, EVER use the words hurt and pussy in the same sentence EVER again!
I was eating in a restaurant last night and the tv overhead had a show on called "The Insider" and they were showing a segment called "In Depth" and it was all about celebrity virgins. Eewwwwww.

I stayed in this weekend and did some home inprovements including refinishing this old bed I bought from a girl on Craigslist a few months ago. I don't have before pix, but it had a traditional cherry wood finish and when I saw it I immediately went in the Auntie Mame direction, now I LOVE it!

Last week while I was in LA I got see my friend's Cereus plant bloom, which only blooms one night a year. We got artsy fartsy with a flashlight and captured this beautiful shot!
