Monday Morning Poetry

Yep. I was bored at work Monday morning, too. But I'm just now getting around to posting it. Actually, I think that is a record for me to have another post so soon. I'm on a roll!

Poem #1

I reached a conclusion
Early this morning at 5
While I was trying
To keep myself alive.
The freezing cold
Was getting to me,
And it brought me to this epiphany:
I don't want to work anymore,
I don't want to quit -
That would be a bore.
And I'm not about to get fired,
But wouldn't it be nice
If I could just be retired!
Just think - It would be so great!
I could stay up
and sleep in late!
I could spend all day
Doing whatever I wanted,
I could even visit
A house most haunted!
I wish I could retire
While I am still young.
Then I wouldn't miss out
On all the fun!
Poem #2
I'm much too old,
To get up so early
And be out in the cold!
But at least I'm warm now,
So I guess I'll stop
Having a cow.
A winter girl, I am not!
But I must admit,
The weekend snow hit the spot.
My nephew and I had a blast,
At least until I got
Too cold to last!
Poem #3
Full of contradictions, that I am.
First I'm young, then I'm old.
And now my tale is all told.
For now. :)
Kind of dorky. But it kept me entertained for a bit. And that made the work day go by faster!

A Christmas me!

I was bored at work one morning exactly 4 weeks before Christmas, so I wrote this:

'Twas 4 weeks before Christmas,
And all through my work,
The attorneys were all stirring,
One being quite a jerk!

The office has no decorations,
But they will come soon, I hear,
Poinsettias, and garlands,
And a tree, never fear!

The secretaries and staff
Were nestled all snug in their spaces,
While stacks of never-ending filing
Hid all their pretty faces.

When what to their wandering
Eyes should appear
An empty file cart
And nobody near!

More rapid than eagles,
They all flew to the cart,
Cursing and yelling
And tearing it apart!

I sat and watched them fight
With a shocked look on my face,
I couldn't believe what I was seeing...
What horror! What disgrace!

And I heard one exclaim,
As she tumbled out of sight,
"Oh, why didn't I stretch
Before I got into this fight!"

The last line needs a little work, but it made me laugh!

Wedding Dresses

Rent or buy?

That is the question!

Anyone out there have any thoughts on the matter?

Wow! A 2nd post!

Amazing I know! It's only been about 2 months and I'm finally writing again!

1. If you were to attend a costume party tonight, what or whom would you go as?

It would probably be a witch. I have a great costume for one. I have orange and black striped tights, and a wig that parts of it glow in the dark, and a fake nose. Or I have glammed it up before with long sparkly orange eyelashes and LOTS of old gaudy jewelry and tons of makeup.

2. What are your choice of toppings on a hamburger? And do you prefer gas or charcoal grilling?

Lettuce, tomato, cheese, bbq sauce, and sometimes bacon. I don't care about the grilling either!

3. You are chosen to have lunch with the President. The condition is you only get to ask one question. What do you ask?

I would ask something out of the ordinary, like what's your favorite ice cream flavor, or something like that.

4. It's your first day of vacation, what are you doing?

Depends on where I am! I would probably sleep in a little, and then go shopping.

5. What is your concession stand must-have at the movies?

Popcorn and usually a box of Buncha Crunches.

6. Which do you dislike most: pop-up ads or spam email?


7. What do you think Captain Hook's name was before he had a hook for a hand?

James A Hook. :) I think it would ironic if his last name was always Hook. And I think that is his name in the movie Hook.

8. Rock, paper, or scissors?


9. How long was it from 'the first date' until the proposal of marriage? How long until the wedding?

First date to marriage proposal...which proposal would that be? I'm too embarrassed to say! The wedding hasn't happened yet, but it's looking like it will be close to a year.

10. Which is worse, being in a place that is too loud, or too quiet?

Too loud! Especially at restaurants!

11. What is one quality that you really appreciate in a person?

Just being there when you need them to be.

12. At the good old general store, what particular kind of candy would you expect to be in the big jar at the counter?

Candy sticks.

13. What is the most distinguishing landmark in your city?

The Salt Lake Temple.

14. Everyone hears discussions that they consider boring. What topic can put you to sleep quicker than any other?

Anything that I don't understand.

15. How many times did it take you to pass your drivers test?


16. If you had to have the same topping on your vanilla ice cream for the rest of your life, what topping would you choose?

Mini chocolate chips. Chocolate chip ice cream is my favorite!

17. What food item would need to be removed from the market altogether in order for you to live a healthier, longer life?


18. You are offered an envelope that you know contains $50. You are then told that you may either keep it or exchange it for another envelope that may contain $500 or may be empty. Do you keep the first envelope, or do you take your chances with the second?

Take my chances!

19. If you had to choose, which would you give up: cable TV, or DSL/cable internet?

I've never had either in my house, so I already know I can live without both and be perfectly happy.

20. What is your highest level of education?

I have taken a couple years of college, but no degree.

21. How much is a gallon of gas in your city? What was the highest it's been?

$2.60-ish. The highest was probably $3.20. I don't really know, but since that what Trish said, I'll go with it!

22. What kind of lunch box did you have as a kid?

The only one I remember is a plain purple one. I'm sure I had others, but I don't remember.

23. What would you rather have, a nanny, a housekeeper, a cook, or a chauffeur?

A housekeeper.

24. Would you rather be trapped in an elevator, or stuck in traffic?

Definitely traffic. At least there you have some control, whereas in an elevator you're stuck until someone rescues you.

25. Lets say a brick fell on your foot, and your kid is standing right next to you, what is your 'cleaned up' swear word?

I would probably just say Ow! And then cry. :)

welcome to my blog

I've never done this before, but I've been reading my sister's and my niece's blogs so I thought I would give it a try. I don't know that anyone will want to read what I have to say, but I guess I'll find out.
