Cube Chronicles.XMASEVE

Behind this wall sits the most obnoxius, bigmouthed cube neighbor imagineable. It is Xmas Eve and because I am the lowest freak on the totem pole, I am stuck here trying to look busy. No one should be at work today, but here I sit bored out of my mind with my ears in pain as I suffer through the loud, brassy chatter of the woman who parks herself behind my pink wall everyday.

UGH. Happy freaking holidays.

P.S. Consider yourself lucky that the audio I tried to capture of her won't upload on my crappy Dell.

Sour Bananas

So, I lost the Great Bakery Throw Down at the Ohio Department of Health. I am so bitter because I was beat out by a banana pudding that looked very much like the one pictured here, but it was in an aluminum foil pan and there were more cookies on top.

It wasn't even homemade.

I am sour over this.

Someday I am going to work in an environment where my creativity is fully appreciated. I feel like a Mac working in an office full of PC's.


The finished product for
'The Great Holiday Bake Off'
at work Christmas Party. Rock on!

Purple Haze

We had a cold and rainy Sunday in Columbus and in typical Liv and Julie fashion we took the opportunity not to enjoy the Sabbath, but rather to attack another room in our house with fiendish fervor.

You'll have to wait come by to get the full effect, but for now, check out this beautiful corner of the room!

Curb Appeal

We got it!

My favorite picture from the day.

I'm just back from a visit with my aunt and uncle in my Southern Ohio, Appalachian birthplace: Portsmouth.
Going home means stories of my relatives from at least one hundred years back.
My grandfather was a mean drunk father of 9 who worked in a steel mill all of his life and beat his wife.
How ironic he was called 'Chick.'

Photos of the best cake I have ever eaten. Weren't we the lucky ones?

cyclones and desert islands

My mother is a cyclone and she touched down this week.

If I could alter this picture while at work there would be a big red circle with a line through it overtop of the picture.

The message being...No Cyclones Allowed.

Three weeks ago I sat surrounded by all my favorite people in the world, the people I would take with me if I was stranded on the proverbial desert island.

I gotta remember that and remind myself that cyclones are not allowed on my desert island.

Not anymore.

Repeat after me.


Fair Souvenir

Liv missed the fair, but Amoreh found a little something to remind her of her Livy. The bloody bunny lives on.......

I am stealing Pixeville's post because I want it on my blog too.
Look at this sweet card she made us from our honeymoon.

Lately, I couldn't feel more fortunate.

Our grand entrance.

Finally, a picture from our big day.

I wish I could embed the Mission Impossible theme in this post without breaking copywrite law.


PS Look at our shiny new shoes!

Bizarre Distraction

Blogging helps to keep me occupied and engaged at work. Yes, that is counterintuitive since blogging is a distraction that pulls me away from work, but I can't read reports for 8 hours in a row without turning into a vegetable brained mad woman, so blogging helps.

That said, I was a bit late this morning because I had to stop and take these pictures.

God love what is left of the dingy/old school part the OSU stretch of High St. Reverse

Folks, we're watching the weather and we need some sunshine energy sent our way.

So, cross your fingers, say a prayer, rub a buddha belly or do a little raindance in reverse 'cause we need some dry weather for our weekend.

Cube Chronicles...episode 2

Much to my surprise folks were amused by my last post from inside the salmon cube on the 6th floor of the Ohio Department of Health.

Perhaps I will make this a series at it seems that the view from the cube gets some good action.


Ummm, I should be working, but look at this tuckered out kitty. I couldn't resist.

This is where we'll all be 8 days from now when Liv and I tie the knot, jump the broom, get hitched, take the plunge, or otherwise seal the deal.

I can't wait because I am both crazy nervous and crazy excited.


So sweet...

Pixelville just sent me this song with the subject 'makes me weepy.'
Me too.

oops, it's 'Place 4 Us'

Chillin' in the hammock under the Buckeye tree.

Brooks and Kathryn rock.*

*Thanks to you guys we realize now that we should have just registered at REI and called it a day. Who were we to think we
really wanted new silverware? Live and learn.

Lady Lovelyness

Highlights from the Saturday night hoopla. Giant thanks to the JBros for funking it up and to Toe B. and the kings for a tribute beyond compare.

Geez, we love you guys.

P.S. More to follow 'cause Livy has the better pics and I can't resize at work :(


Fear Factor

Nothing like a little terror to incite compliance with daily teeth brushing. The nightmares live on now for our kids, neices and nephews. Watch out for those nasty monsters!

PS Leave it to my sister to dig this up, next it will be clips of the Incredible Hulk!

'R' Rated

Joshua is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It has breast-feeding, child-slapping, granny-pushing and rodent-stuffing."

This from the NYT movie reviews. I chuckled upon reading it and then crossed my fingers that it is meant tongue in cheek.

This is only a test.

Stop, drop and roll.

Sounds from inside my cube at this vey moment.

It gets better.

As Brooks said so well, this is pure corniness. 100% Cheese.
The description for the sterling silver monument to my lover.
I can hardly wait to run my fingers over those tight buns...oooh heaven's delight!

Made for Lesbian Lover's who want to express their special love for their Devoted Partner.

This small statue shows 2 lovely ladies with long flowing hair, sharing a kiss in a tight embrace. The statue is able to stand on its own and measures 1 1/4 inches high. It weighs 14 grams.

Nothing pornographic here, just true love. Run your fingers over the tight buns and long legs. Brings a thrill to your senses.

Monument to our love.

While searching for a ring to bind Liv and I forever, I found an even better solution.

Ah, the sentiment of lesbians.
