Tile flooring... - Mood:Good
Monday November 13 20174:44:02 PM |
Has anyone ever had a tile floor, or more specifically the grout, sealed? I love the tile flooring we put in years ago, but I made the mistake of letting Lowe's pick out my grout color and it's light and it's getting a little dingy in high traffic areas.

I wonder how much it would help if I had it sealed. Any thoughts?

My coworker invited everyone in the office to his 3 year old's birthday party in a couple of weeks. Is it me or is that a little weird? I've always thought children's birthday parties are for their little friends and close friends and family, no? Luckily we are going to celebrate my stepfather-in-law's birthday out to dinner that day so I have a pretty good excuse not to go.

The little girl is darling, but we were just at his house a couple of months ago for a housewarming party and we also brought a gift.

My friend/coworker that I share an office with is like "enough already", totally channeling George Costanza.

We went to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon Nation Park with my in-laws last weekend and we all had a great time. There are some photos in the Autumn thread in Generals.

We bought hiking boots before the trip and they were GREAT.

My office is moving again in a couple of months and I'm not thrilled about it as much fun as it was last time, three years ago.

The office they are zeroing in on is good and not in a bad area, but I will have to take a different freeway to work and this one's a total sh*tshow in the morning. Not only will I have to get up earlier, I will get home later because I can't leave the office until 5 because I cover the phone.

One of my coworkers is a delicate flower and he can't stand the occasional airplane noise we get here where we are now (next to a major airport), even though they land over our building rather than taking off more than 90% of the time.

It honestly doesn't bother me (or anyone else, for that matter), I just tune it out on weathery days.

Moving is the f*cking worst and these guys are pushing for the targeted office because it's closer to their houses.

Although in this situation, I sort of doubt it.

I'm on lunch and I checked my facebook and I have a weird private message from my friend J. She has been living with her friend and husband's cousin for a while now as she and her husband have been living on his disability payments for a while now (he is truly sick) and they can't afford to get their own place.

Anyway, the friend's sister has been living there also and she brought some ex-felon home and apparently my friend J and her husband fear for their safety and she is going to send out a message to three people before 12pm every day on fb and if we don't get the message, we're supposed to call 911?

I don't like being put in these situations. If it's unsafe, get out of there. What would I even tell 911? Her parents live here in town, it's not like they have no one.

Isn't this weird?

No one has posted in Journals in 2 hours!

This past weekend I kind of felt like I didn't have one because I went out TWICE (omg) during the day both days.

On Sunday I had that thing at my boss's house and it was cool. I rode with my coworker and her husband because my husband was still recovering from a nasty cold her had during the week. My boss's house was nice and, since he's a geologist, he had cool fossils and rocks strewn about his house.

Did I ever tell you guys he really favors Ralph Macchio? 'Tis true.

I've been in a pretty good mood lately. I'm sure most people can't tell when I'm not, but I surely know.

My mom's landline phone is totally FUBAR right now in that you can barely hear her and there is a constant busy signal in the background, lol. They were supposed to have it fixed today; we'll see about that.

lucky made the funniest typo today, I'm still lol'ing.

So today I am looking sort of 90s-ish, I'm wearing one of those plastic choker things that were very in back in the day with a matching bracelet and I am wearing Tommy Girl perfume.

It got me thinking about women's fashion (don't pass out, slinks). I'm 34 and sometimes I probably dress younger than I should, but I think I've noticed it as a trend with people my age. I feel like those old lady sack-like clothes will be going the way of the dodo in the future because my generation won't have them.

Do you think you dress younger at your age than the generation before you?

Even my mom dresses younger now than she used to when I was a child and my mother-in-law is totally hip and doesn't dress like an old lady, either.

What are your thoughts on this?

Does anyone else remember the time that buddy posted that link to that duck penis "deploying" in the links forum and we were all "wtf?!"? This was years ago, how many I couldn't even tell you at this juncture.

Anyway, my movie fellas were talking about the preying mantis being an bum opening last week and gouging out hummingbirds' eyes and eating their brains, so I told them via e mail to google "duck penis" if they want to be disturbed by nature and one of them did it and responded to me, lol.

The thing *IS* terrifying.

I think my body's been fighting off a minor illness for the past few days since we went to a housewarming party. My lymph nodes are swollen, I've been sneezing a lot, and I've felt just a little run down. Not enough to keep me from anything, though. I think I might make it without going down at this point.

Tell me some jackass thing you've done lately.

I was showering this morning and I hear constant banging on the front door. My husband wasn't home because he went to work rather early this morning so I was like "WTF?!". I jump out of the shower to see what the hell is going on; I didn't know if it was the cops or what, tbh. I get to the door and it's our neighbor, D, but I'm naked except for a towel, so I talk to him through the closed door.

He's like, "You have a busted pipe on the side of the house, it's gushing pretty bad!". So, I have to dry off and get myself covered so I can go check this out.

D saw me in my bathrobe and with a towel on my head. The mystery is gone. This is probably how he'll think of me from now on.

Anyway, it was our irrigation system, the stupid thing. The hubby will be looking into it as he's worked on it before.

There was water gushing down the street, lol. I got it turned off.

What a start!

In the last couple of weeks, things have gotten pretty technologically advanced in our household. I am generally a late adapter to new technology for the most part and I'm ok with that.

I didn't have a smart phone until 2011 and I just replaced that one in October of last year, for example.

Anyway, for my birthday the husband got me a pair of SONOS Play:1 speakers (they are wireless save for the power cord and work off of wifi) and they are GREAT. I also upgraded our BluRay player to a wireless one and feel like an idiot for not doing that sooner. Our cable internet and router are working great with it thus far. I also just added DVR to my cable package and watched the previous night's Conan last night while eating dinner, fast forwarding through commercials.

I love all of this stuff!

What is something you were late to the party on, but ended up loving?

There's an event going on in town today and some of my coworkers are going to it, so it's going to be pretty quiet around here this afternoon. I'm supposed to have a doc from another office to work on later, but we'll see. They're not always as timely as they say they're going to be.

So, things that make no sense. My coworker had her brother-in-law put braces on her son (he's an ortho), but bil lives in Northern California and she and her family do not. Long story short, son's wire comes out and she can't get a local ortho to touch her son's braces because they aren't the treating dentist. Last week she took a day off to fly to NorCal with her son to get his braces fixed, which had been jacked for weeks.

Isn't this more trouble than it's worth? I think it's a bit cray.

Let's discuss things people do that make no sense whatsoever.

The hassle isn't worth the savings sometimes.

They have the hardest time translating Savage Garden song titles, it really makes me doubt their intellect.

Tho the Moon and Back & Carry One Dancing had me lol'ing.

This is by far not the first time I've seen them botch multiple songs on a bootleg tape or CD, haha.

Today has been a good day, but I had a minor issue earlier. I will live.

I can't wait to have 6 days off of work in a row after I'm done working tomorrow. It's been a while since I took that many days off in a row, so I certainly have the time.

How are you folks today?

I took this last night, so it was a little dark, but I'm really happy with the magnetic board I ordered for this!

Do you have things you like hanging around your house or is your decorating pretty generic? I find it depressing going into houses that come off like they're being staged to sell. I also hate it when there is almost nothing on walls.

Pretty sure we're going to see Wonder Woman this weekend. We haven't been to a movie at the theater since Finding Dory last year and WW is getting really great reviews.

Today has been going along quit nicely, so hopefully the afternoon zips along as well.

I decided last week that I need to start wearing eyeliner again. I'm just too pale and I look better wearing it. I had just gotten lazy and given up on it, wearing just foundation, powder, and mascara the majority of the time. I need to find an eyelid primer that works for me, though. I tried the UD stuff and it's just too f*cking pasty and thick. I need something that glides on easy and dries matte. Does this exist? My eyelids are super oily, so that sucks.

I can't decide if I'm tired of my job or not. Some days, I feel great about it, other days, not so much. I know that's normal to a degree, but the slow days are so slow I want to scream sometimes and now I'm being paid more than ever.


I think I'd like to watch the old and new Twin Peaks; it sounds interesting.

I want to watch all the things, but I also want a sparkling clean home, so those things clash.

Ok, so I bought this advertisement for one of my favorite albums on ebay and it's laminated and I can't decide what to do with it. I have framed laminated things before, but they really don't show that well, honestly. I don't want to punch holes in the item to hang it somewhere, either. Is there something that I'm not thinking of? I thought of putting it on the side of my filing cabinet with magnets, but meh. HALP

Oh my glob, speaking of the filing cabinet, I spent TWO HOURS this morning cleaning out that sucker. I purged and still have to shred a bunch of stuff this week. I found my ticket stub from when I saw Jerry Seinfeld in 2005, lol.

I also found the picture of myself one of my employees at Kohl's drew of me (shut up), who also wanted to date me.

My boss is at another office today, but he just called and says he is selling some of our dusty, unused lab equipment and some folks are stopping by in a bit to get the first of it! YES OH YES! Goodbye, you piles of sh*t!

We are moving again in about 6 months and I'm not looking forward to that, however.

I generally like my job, but it's either feast or famine as far as the workload goes and sometimes I wish it were a little more steady. Yesterday nothing was happening and today I've processed documents all day long save for my lunch hour. I'd still rather be busy than not.

I sort of hate duets, if I'm being honest. If I like one of the artists a lot, I just want the other one to gtfo of the song. Paul McCartney ruined Thriller from being a perfect album, imo, on The Girl is Mine. Preposterous that anyone would consider Paul over Michael, ffs. I do (curiously) like Say Say Say, however. Don't even get me started on the album that Darren Hayes made with one of his producers, who can't sing his way out of a paper bag.

Going to try not falling asleep on the couch tonight after dinner. Pray for me, k? I get tired easily.

I just got back from the main post office in town and, I swear to God, as I was being waited on I heard something that sounded chicken-like in the back. I was like, 'oh, whatever, it must have been some machinery chirping or something'. Then, as the lady was putting postage on my packages, I hear an all out CROW from a ROOSTER.

F'real. Can you send live animals through USPS?

It's an ok Monday, but I'm not having a great hair day. I hate that.

My most successful tweet on twitter so far is one that I made mocking someone further that Gordon Ramsay had already mocked, lol. twitter's kind of weird.

No aka this time.

I find it really interesting the different words that different countries have for the same thing or how they pronounce words differently.

Let's talk about ones that have confused us or that we find funny or interesting.

That what the US calls "cookies" they call "biscuits" in the UK really tripped me up when I first ran across it. Having tea and biscuits seemed a bit odd to my ears, haha.

Recently we made fun of our coworker from NZ because he said "third time lucky" because we thought he meant "third time's the charm", which is what we say in the US, but damn if I didn't just see Karl Pilkington say "third time lucky" in one of his books, so now we're the idiots, I think.

Also, I have a real issue with Brisbane being pronounced BrisBUN when my eyes see the word and want me to say BrisBAIN.
