Ah the perfection returns

There is nothing like I T support. No I can not change the oil in my car, work a power saw, set up my own email or google stuff, but by darn I know how to call I T.
"Help Ms Wizzard" my blog is broken.
I, the helpless older lady blogger Bunrammitsrus humbly bow my extra long bunyay ears in recognition of your blog superiority. Thank you queen of the mega chip (or byte).
I did sew a button on today! and my actual job is accounting! So I am not without skilz... just old skilz.

The queen of the Prarie Dogs, that's me.
This morning I woke up to 12" of snow and frozen roads. I called work and was going to not go in but my boss said
"Oh the main roads are fine". (Translation) Come in to work now.
So I went down the road and only got stuck 6 times before I reached a main artery. The main street was not
FINE or anything close to fine. There was ice covered with the 12" of cast off snow of a thousand other cars.
As I went along, I started hearing a strange noise. I thought it was the sound of my engine vibrating on the
chunky road. About 10 minutes into the trip I realized it was a familiar noise. The noise the universe makes
when it cocks the let's f-with-Liz gun. Yes, I had ANOTHER flat tire in Prarie Dog City. This was one of the brand new
tires. It was virtually in the same position on my car as the last one. I pulled over to inspect the damage.
However, after considering the semi sliding on the ice toward my little Kia in a giant pile of snow now serving as
the side of the road I decided that $100.00 for a new tire beats the crap out of death by smoosh and drove on the tire
all the way to the nearest WalMart. $ 89.00 later, I made it to work alive and poor.
I earned the undying respect of all the Prairie Dogs under that 4 or 5 feet of snow for getting my car out of
their field, and am now an official carrier of the plague having parked there twice to change a tire.
Happy Spring.

Happy 1st day of Spring!

Wow. There is a huge blizzard outside. Did somebody say that tomorrow is the 1st day of spring? I mean the snow is pouring out of the sky at an alarming rate. They say we will have a foot by 8 pm.
So whatnell am I doing at work????
I don't know either.
My doggies are white, my view out of the office is white, and all the cars in the lot are white. Basically a white out.
Maybe you should read "We hold these truths to be self evident" if you want my opinion on the weather man.
Mother Nature is on the rag.

Das Boat is sinking

MY latest little chunk of the "stimulus package" came yesterday.
My boss came around with a letter announcing "wage reductions" for all of us office people.
I may not like it, but I know I am greatly blessed to still have a job.
The trickle down finally landed a big fat frozen glop of ick on my wrung of the corporate ladder.
(last one from the bottom)
When all you can do about it is accept it because everyone is in the same boat, its not so bad to get the wage cut instead of the boot.

The sea hag
Brittany has the mini-mouse voice thing I get like 4 times a year. She has had it for a month.
Her voice sounds like what I imagine the Sea Hag would sound like. (reading Percy Jackson right now)
If you drank nothing but whiskey for 3 days and then swallowed 3 sacks of marbles,
I imagine you could imitate the noise she makes when she talks. Maybe. With a couple of days practice.
Anyway, you can not understand her at all and the kids are running wild like little Indians.
So if you call our house and it sounds like Gollum just answered the phone and you hear an actual noise like a ring wraith is screaming in the background, you got the right house.
