When it came time to go home I was supposed to transfer our phones to the answering service we use. This was something I had never done before (our secretary used to do it, but she is one of the ones that got the ax) so there were instructions for me to do it. I was to push *72 and then dial this 866 number and tell them I was transferring the phones. So I dialed the *72, hung up and then called the 866 number. I wanted to make sure I had done it right, so I called the office from my cell. It didn't work. So I tried again. *72 this time I dialed the 866 number right after. Only some how I misdialed the number and got a recording for a phone sex line. Of course I freaked out and immediatly hung the phone up. So I tried again *72, only this time it wouldn't let me do it, it just beeped at me. So I dialed the number, and low and behold I had actually transfered our phone calls to a phone sex line. LOL I had to hurry and undo the transfer and then redo it and ensured that this time I had done it correctly. Can you imagine if I had not checked to make sure I did it right? Its a 3 day weekend! That is a lot of calls that could come in that were going to be redirected to my special number. I called my boss to tell her what I had done, and she laughed and said only the nurse would do something like that. She said im sure its a service our clients could use, but we shouldn't exactly force it upon them. LOL
Moral of the story, don't leave me in charge!

Uh oh… I think that I might be suffering from the mythical and elusive Swine Flu. I awoke this morning feeling somewhat poorly, and a quick inventory of my body revealed the presence of the following symptoms:
Low BLT-cell count
Swilling and Tenderness
Cloven Hoof and Mouth Disease
A Honey Glazed Expression
If you experience any of the above symptoms, I encourage you to drink an entire bottle of Nysqueal and seek the help of an oinkologist immediately!
UPDATE: Whew! It turns out that I was only suffering from a mild stomach bug and lack of sleep… Thank Goodness! It was merely a case of “whine flu.” Nevertheless, if you suspect that you have contracted the deadly Swine Flu, don’t panic. You may already be “cured!”

There are many different kinds of love. I love my family and I love my friends, but there is just something about having that one person who gets you, and loves you unconditionally. They put up with all those crazy things you do or say that makes you the wacky person that you are. I have decided that true loneliness exists when you have lost love. I used to be fine being single, but all that seemed to change after finally falling in love. What is it about love, that makes being single, feel so wrong?
Having that one person in your life who is your biggest fan is very fulfilling. I love my family and friends, but they will always be there no matter what (at least I hope they will). It's at least partially due to obligation. Finding someone else in the universe who can't bear to be only your friend and has to have the whole you and is willing to still give you everything that your family and friends give you and so much more is the essential (and difficult) part. I have been fortunate enough to have experienced such love in my life and once I had my taste of it, I am finding it more and more difficult to imagine life without it. Love can kill you, but love can bring you right back to life, too. Love is just too good to pass up. Too good to ignore. Why resist it? Just enjoy it while it lasts and do your best to make it do just that. And if you can't make it last, at least make sure it's not your last one. And hopefully learn from your past mistakes. Do love wrong and the only way to get it back on your side is to take care of it better in the future.
A lot of people wonder why love isn't working for them, but too many people don't do enough work on it themselves. Sure, you might get lucky and stumble upon it, but you have to put in a little effort if you want to keep it going strong. You've simply got to put in the work if you want it to work for you. People, like myself, spend so much time finding reasons not to love, that they miss out on something wonderful right there in front of them. They scare themselves out of it. I have seen it, and done it myself. Or sometimes people start second guessing themselves (myself included) and freak themselves out thinking about why someone loves them instead of just embracing it and enjoying it. A lot of people surely rush into love. That happens all the time. I've seen that, too. But I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about those instances where someone you know truly loves someone and they don't even know it. Or they don't see how much someone truly loves them. Or they won't let themselves get past a certain point. They even almost see it themselves. It's right there. It's so close, but they just can't close the deal, because they're scared or they're just not sure. My advice, and this is only advice as it is something I have had to come to terms with myself, its to trust yourself. Don't worry about putting a time frame on love, love knows no rules or boundaries. You know if something feels right, you don't need someone else to tell you its love. You just know. Its a great feeling, so why fight it? This world would be a whole lot better if we all had somebody to love and who loved us back. For that is the greatest gift of all. I hope that one day, I might have the joy that is love back in my life. And this time to stay.

More than 30,000.
In America, two people so far has died from the swine flu.
One person had been treated in Mexico, only coming to the States toward the end. When it was too late. The other the say had lots of undisclosed medical conditions.
Yet people are in a panic. Joe Biden is telling his family to stay off subways. U.S. officials are saying "There WILL be deaths." People are washing their hands compulsively and staying away from movie theaters and stadiums. I've even heard people say they wouldn't eat at a Mexican restaurant right now.
It doesn't matter if it makes sense or not.
If you have flu symptoms, go to a doctor. Get treated. It's that simple. Don't stop eating pork because someone 'twittered' the untrue rumor that you can get it that way. Don't go out and invest in a surgical mask. Don't cancel your vacation to Florida because Biden said we should avoid airplanes. Just calm down.
It doesn't help that every day you login to read the dramatic media coverage of events. "The U.S. has 68 confirmed cases in five states," the Associated Press reported Tuesday. 45 of those are in New York.
Uh-oh. Better cancel that trip to New York. And if you encounter anyone who has been to New York, walk away immediately. Stop shaking people's hands, start carrying antibacterial hand gel around with you everywhere you go. In short, live your life in fear.
I'm curious just how many cases of REGULAR flu are out there right now. In the U.S., it has to be more than 68. In fact, last year REGULAR flu killed 83 children and 36,000 adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That's 306 deaths a month. That's around ten deaths a DAY.
Got your antibacterial soap now?
Your likelihood of dying in a car accident is much greater than your likelihood of dying from the swine flu. In fact, it is estimated 115 people die in car crashes EVERY DAY. So if you cancel your plans tonight and stay home, THAT should be your reason. Not your fear of catching this flu.
Don't blame the media. They prey on your fears. Your fears lead you to buy a paper or tune into the evening news. They're just giving you what you want.
Don't blame the government. They HAVE to be prepared and they HAVE to inform. If they wrote the swine flu off as no big deal and massive amounts of people died from it, they'd be held liable.
I'm not saying you shouldn't be informed and be careful. Certainly, you should. But should you barricade yourself in your house and refuse to let your children to go to school because of it?
I don't think so.
