Can you hear what I hear?
As I sit here at 6:30 in the morning listening to my boss in the office next door chomp on nacho cheese Doritos I realize that I have failed the December blog challenge. I tried, I really did. I just couldn’t find time Friday through Monday to write anything. Then again I couldn’t really find anything to write about on Thursday either, but I got a freebie with a sarcastic post. Anyway, I guess I am going to try and get back on the wagon here.
By the way, I can hear her chomping on those damn chips and I have my door closed. I can add that to my list of things that really irritate me. But that is another post. Maybe tomorrow! For now I will try to take up some space here to talk about my little cheerleader in the picture on last Wednesdays post.
Bella is getting so big it is crazy. I cant believe she is already about to be 8 months old! She is saying momma and da-da and nana and she has been trying to say kitty too. She is starting to try and pull herself up and walk lately! It seems like just yesterday we were in colic hell, now she is just so dang cute and sweet that I don’t know if I can stand it. I find myself thinking about little things she does while I am at work and it makes me smile and laugh out loud some times. I am a very proud dad. Maybe Daina, you will get to meet her soon.
Last night we finally received some stuff we had ordered from thinkgeek.com, which is one of my most favorite websites. We ordered a few toys for Bella, but what I was really waiting on was a few toys of my own. I ordered this cool little plasma ball
that I can plug into a USB port on my computer. Like I said I am a huge fan of The Office on TV and I want a bunch of toys on my desk like Michaels Scott. Of course, I would like to think I get a lot more accomplished at work than Michael Scott does, but writing this entry while sitting in my office says a lot. 🙂 Anyway, that wasn’t all I bought for the office.
I also bought this nifty little device called the Annoy-a-tron 2.0. It is a simple little circuit board that plays annoying little beeps and chirps at different intervals. It has a lithium C2450 battery and will last for a few weeks. You simply turn it on and choose a sound and then stick it in some hidden spot in someone’s office and sit back and watch. It has a magnet built in for convenience. Continuing my role of class clown from high school, I also like to play pranks on people at work and at home. So when I discovered this little gem I just had to have it!
Another guy I work with named Gary also likes to play pranks and it has become a little competition up here at work to see who has the next best prank. So since I get to work at 6:00 am and he doesn’t stroll in until 8:00, I got the cleaning guy to unlock his door for me so I could plant my prank. I set the annoy-a-tron to the cricket sound and turned the volume up. I placed it on the back of the inside of the filing cabinet in his office. It is behind the drawer so you cannot see it by opening the drawer. He will be looking for a long long time. Just like McDonald’s, I’m lovin’ it!
