Home Sweet Home

I arrived home this evening without any problems – thank goodness. The bad part is I brought a sore throat with me. I don’t get sick – ever, but in the last three weeks I have been sick twice. And this is definitely a period in my life when I am getting enough sleep and…

    Feel better. Sorry you keep getting sick kiddo. Your memory stick has arrived! Wish I could get a memory stick that would just assist me on day-to-day lapses of memory loss! Have a good weekend Holly. Are you coming in next week?

    I’m coming in on Tuesday so I can come to Tina’s good-bye lunch. And now I get to pick up a new toy while I am there! See you soon.

Some People Talk Too Much

My trip to California has been, uh, interesting. I have spent a LOT of time with some of my co-workers (there are about 20-30 of us in the room) and learned a few things. 1.) Nobody should talk about how much things cost – especially high ticket items. The only exception would be if you…

    I’m cracking up here!!! Well said my dear – well said!

  • JamieMarch 30, 2006 - 3:43 pm

    You should post more, I could use some new reading material. CNN.com gets old after a while.

  • HollyMarch 30, 2006 - 10:42 pm

    I’ll see what I can do 🙂

    Which of these sins was I guilty of last week?

  • HollyApril 5, 2006 - 9:09 am

    Not to worry Hugh, I only wrote about people I didn’t really know. That way I can just say it was bad first impressions. I wrote this after the first day, and by the second I had already changed my mind about most everyone.

    1) I never understood why people would try to sound important by price dropping. It seems the richest people I have met have always considered the inclusion of actual numbers in a conversation to be cheap and ordinary. So then isn’t the act of price dropping couter productive? If it’s just designed to reach downward, then what is the desired effect other than ensuring that you come off as a prick to someone that could never afford whatever it is you are buying?

    2) Don’t talk to talk? Ouch… Some of us just can’t avoid it I’m afraid. I’ll just have to try to be more interesting.

    3) I find it rude when stupid people sit next to me at meetings… but that’s just me. Actually I find it rude when stupid people are allowed in meetings. I try, however, to limit my belittling to an education level that excludes actual understanding in those people. When I am wrong and they do get the insult then I am truly sorry on more than one account.

    4) Like I’ve ever had a bad question… I haven’t have I? But seriously, keep out the stupid people (see part 3) and this problem is self correcting.

    5) Well unfortunately I’ve made up this entire post just to sound smarter. Perhaps I should have started at the bottom.

    As for the youngest person in the room comment, surely you must have realized from working at the PTO that age has no correlation to competency. Still I enjoy being the youngest (not that it ever happens anymore). I like the situation of always being underestimated. With the bar set somewhere just above being able to form complete sentences, it is much easier to exceed expectations. I think I would be much more of an observer if I were a company CEO and the oldest person in the room. Then any comment you make that isn’t incredible wise has to be considered a let down in the other participant’s eyes.

Stuck in Airports

I was supposed to fly to San Jose, CA today to visit Cisco (the company that bought SA). Wade and I got up really early to reach the Greenville, SC airport in time for my 7:25 am flight. The idiot that I am, I directed us to the wrong airport so by the time we…

    Got time to spare…go by air! Got more yet…take a jet! Got all day take ASA!

  • HollyMarch 28, 2006 - 1:46 am

    I sit in my hotel room at 1:45 am Atlanta time thinking you are exactly right!

  • […] I have been flying for years and years. I don’t even remember my first flight and I probably take at least a couple flights each year. However, in March I had to fly to San Jose, CA for work. I mentioned all my flight trouble here. Well, something happened on that trip. I suddenly get very uncomfortable during takeoff and landing. Once we are up in the air, I am fine – or maybe it is just that I get really involved in my movie or book. But for take off and landings I get a tight stomach and am very nervous. I can even use logic to try to convince myself the chances of crashing are slim, but somehow that doesn’t help….. […]

I Was Busy

It turns out my mom is coming to visit in a few weeks. Because of this, Wade and I have a lot we want to get done. Most importantly was finishing the painting upstairs so that we could rip up the carpets and have the hardwood floors refinished. (Carpet makes a nice easy drop cloth.)…

The Search for the Perfect Rolo

I think it is a well known fact that I love chocolate – all chocolate – with the exception of white chocolate. I love very chewy chocolate carmel candies – like Milk Duds and turtles. My current favorite candy is Rolos, but Rolos can vary from the very chewy to the very gooey. I buy…

  • HollyMarch 23, 2006 - 11:47 am

    Not yet – I eat them too fast!

  • momMarch 26, 2006 - 12:59 am

    I like Rolos but am ready for a new entry. Mother to Holly Come in Holly with an update

  • PaddyMarch 26, 2006 - 5:53 pm

    I agree with Mom!

  • HollyMarch 30, 2006 - 1:51 am

    I’m going to blame the lack of posting on the upcoming visit of my mom. There is lots to do before she comes. I’ll post some pictures of what we got done.

She Strikes Again

We have a nice backyard. Madison loves to run and jump the monkey grass. So why does she want out? I was working yesterday when my neighbors came over to introduce themselves – and return Madison. She had evidently shown up at their house and started chasing their cats. The nice lady, Janice, did tell…

A Sweet Deal

Wade and I spent our weekend furniture shopping. All day Saturday we shopped in Greenville and even looked for antiques too. At the end of the day we were rather disappointed. We weren’t excited about anything we saw and had bought nothing. (We won’t even discuss the fact that Wade and I’s taste are not…

A New Church for Wade and Holly

Last summer, Wade and I finally found a church we really liked – Buckhead Church, a satellite church of North Point. I had been a few times, but never thought Wade would enjoy the extremely contemporary atmosphere. We walked out our first Sunday and Wade couldn’t stop talking about how great it was. The only…
