The Thursday that is Friday

And why is that?  Because I'm taking the day off tomorrow.  You know why?  Cuz I can.  It's our pseudo-celebration of finishing this friggin Associates degree.  And now that I've had a week off, I really must jump back into studying.  Even my horoscope says so!

Money which you may have been working to earn for a long time may finally come your way today, MiamiShyner. Don't be surprised, however, if you have to do a lot of running around in order to get it! Plans for future moneymaking projects may come your way, though it is important to remember to consider everything carefully and not jump in too quickly. This is an excellent time to start learning a new moneymaking skill. Go for it!

First sentence: I have my annual review today.  I technically got promoted about six months ago without the pay raise to go with it.  I'm hoping this means that I'll actually be getting a raise. 

Second sentence: I've been running around for the last six months.

Third sentence: I don't know yet.  Maybe something REALLY interesting will come up today. (btw, keep your fingers crossed for good juju at 10:30am EST please)

Last sentence: Go forth and LEARN!  PHP is first, then I think I'll try to tackle some SQL.  If you could see my bookshelf you'd think I'm a computer programming genius, but alas, I am not.  I really gotta get moving on being more proficient in at least one area.

It's self-portrait Thursday, so here's a picture of me because I think I'm cute today.

Have a great day everyone!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

<insert whatever you want here>

I suppose I'm a scrooge.  I really haven't been "into" Christmas for many years now.  I think it stopped being interesting and/or fun about 20 years ago.  Every once in a while, though, when I go into "the Christmas room" (where the tree is..all decorations are in one room) and I smell the tree, I get a little nostalgic, then I go into another room and it's over.

But that's not why I started this post.

My horoscope is DEAD ON today!

If work is beginning to feel more like a burden than a joy, it may be time to rethink your job, MiamiShyner. Your personality is such that you need lots of room to stretch and grow. If, instead, you feel stifled and stuck, then you know it is time to find a new professional challenge. You are fortunate that your skill set is such to afford you many opportunities. This time, choose more carefully!

Let's break this down:

BEGINNING TO?!?! 

Your personality is such that you need lots of room to stretch and grow.

Stretch and grow…circus!  Okay, crappy joke, but seriously, I'm in a very small box and that bitch is nailed shut.

You are fortunate that your skill set is such to afford you many opportunities.

I don't think that I actually have a skill set.  That is depressing.  I'm what you call a jack-of-all-trades, master of none.  You'd think I could pick something and get good at it.  Maybe one day.

Anywho, there are 45 days left until vacation and that's better than Christmas any day.  Have a holly, jolly Tuesday.

Shyner’scope

After yesterday's crapfest, today is much better. :-)  Even my horoscope says so:

Unexpected communication from someone special – most likely another woman – is likely to brighten your entire day, MiamiShyner. Even the subtlest of comments can take you to the Moon and back. You delight in the little things, and it does not take much to amuse you. There is plenty for you to be amused about today, and you will find that you happily bounce from one subject to the next, not to mention one feeling to the next.

I wonder who's gonna call or write today?!?!  The anticipation!!  SQUEE!

Oh, and I'm going to Zumba tonight.  Loves me some working out.  AND, I'm finally gonna get my lazy bum back over to the rig because I miss flying like nobody's business.

So much to do, so much time to do it in.

HEP!

Theme for the day.

I am grumpy today.  I did not work out this morning because the dog was kind enough to piss on the floor again last night and getting the mop and bucket out doesn't make me want to work out afterwards.  Here's today's horoscope:

"Go with the flow" is your anthem for today, Shawneen. You will find the freedom you seek by simply following the path of least resistance. There is no reason for you not to be happy. Life doesn't need to be difficult or complicated. The thing to remember is that you should be one hundred percent yourself. People will react to you the way they need to. Don't worry about their feelings – they are not your responsibility.

What this means is that if you don't want the non-censored, straight from the hip, Sagittarius-type of answer, then you'd better not ask me because I'm not sparing feelings today.  The horoscope said I don't have to.
