Well, I have decided to make the plunge over to Wordpress.com So, I am packing my bags up here at Blogger and sauntering my way over. I have already created my account and am playing with the formatting now, tring to learn my way around their services and management pages. Hopefully I'll have it up within the next few days. Cool new feature is categorizing. So I'll have to go back through all my posts and categorize them for you. Also gives me a chance to remove entries that used sound bites that are no longer working either. I also like the new tab feature: This will allow me to further categorize things such as favorite links and more. New Page: Nate's Place or natesplace.wordpress.com Stay tuned for more info....

I want to give a huge Shout Out to Cat who dropped a link on my lap to Wordpress.com as a possible new home for me. I've checked out a random sampling of blogs, and it appears pretty versatile in behind the scenes scripting. Be a nice way to start off fresh too....start from teh ground up and give me a chance to change my blog title. I'm leaning to: Nate's Place ....some of you may find it easier to type and less offensive for those that read blogs at work. Anyone offering submissions for a new Blog name for me? Keep it short and sweet. Being that it is Friday, and next week will be work hell week....maybe in two weeks?

No, Not gone yet. Just very, very extremely busy with work and still looking for a Blog providor that won't crash me on long posts. I just don't care for Diaryland, and MySpace is not my cup 'o tea....way too many tweens on there with absolutely nothing to say plus the amount of fakes on their are so obvious. I like the brunette on the left. Nice waist, killer bod which is just ripped. Hopefully not from meth though.... I like the little necklace too and unique makeup style. Like to go to the gym with her anytime. I can just imagine the type of workout we'd have. Scary thing is, is if I ever have a daughter, I have to watch out where she goes and what she wears to stave off guys like me. No, I haven't found the bug yet and I've stared at teh scripting for hours. Maybe I just scrap this and start over?

Sorry for the lack of posts. I think this last week I have lost about 4 or 5 posts which has frustrated the hell out of me. I guess I have to examine my template and script to see what the hang up is.... Hopefully I'll have this fixed soon.

Musings The picture is for your viewing pleasure only....and mine...'cause I love the ladies in denim,...not to mention matching business attire and the fact they are cute as heck too. can't say anything too eventful on my business trip other than it was a success. Okay, I will toot my own horn just for a second...I'm good at what I do...no hitches. The thing I did not like was the long hours and the long flights...oh and the cold fricken weather. A few of my co-workers went with me on this business trip...each one of us responsible for another aspect. One is an older married lady who we get along swimmingly... Anyway, we went out out to local restaraunt/bar and I got my local drink on. I was eyeing up a nice young lady, and my coworker was giving me shit about it. Telling me she was too young for me, and I was being too obvious. Uh, DUH!!! I was trying to give her the eye...Mom...and get noticed in return. However, this young philly was with her community college friends, including a pack of smugly dudes. So chances were slim anyway. Lets just say my wingman had grounded me on the tarmac. The nice thing was was Stephanie picked me up at the airport, and took me home. It was pretty late so she stayed the night, and the next morning we got buck-wild. Lucky her...she got off twice. Me...only once. I'm hoping for a repeat tonight!

Musings.... So our temporary receptionsist of 6 plus months walked out the other day with no notice. Most likely becuase the powers that be didn't want to hire her full time after so long and the fact she put up with a lot of crap from her superiors that took advantage of her. So she bailed,.....and I really don't blame her. On the upside, they have found a new (and improved) temp replacement who is fricken' hot. The bad news for me is that she is probably 15 year my junior, and the fact that she works in the same building as I would preclude me from ever hitting on her, (I learned the hardway never to dip your pen in the company ink anymore). Anyway, she is a petite blonde with very fair skin....who knows if she ever seen the sun, but the benefit of that is no flawed skin or unsightly wrinkles, etc. She has hazel eyes, nice bright teeth, a little tiny diamond stud in her nose. She is of german descent. She carriers herself well, and dresses upscale....that to me is where I find my attraction to her. I have a hard time making eye contact for the sheer fact that I find myself fantasizing about her.....a lot. Like her whole wardrobe is the transition from High School fashion to corporate woman. Must shop at Wet Seal or Judy's or something like that (Is Judy's even around anymore?) That is the type of fantasy where I am ripping her clothes off at her apartment and we break in every square foot of her little hole-in-the-wall pad. We use the furntiure she bought from IKEA, and the hand me down couch from her older sister. I can go on and on here, but you get the picture.
Musings .....but with all these local Catholic high school girls running around my neighborhood lately wearing their pleated plaid skirts and white knee highs, it sure feels like I have sprung anyway. Seriously, it's like the local school gave them all new uniforms for the year. I'm being assaulted at every corner with lascivious thoughts. I can't even tell which ones are 16 and which ones are 18 either, so I'm not sure if my thoughts are legal or not. As you can probably tell, I'm not gettin' any right now. Stephanie is out of town on business for almost two weeks. The lst time we had got together was at that dance club I mentioned about two weeks ago....and still there is just something not right I can't put my finger on....concerning that other 'guy' I mentioned sniffing around Stephanie still. No, I don't have 100% trust I know the 'full story', and my 6th sense is pretty dead-on about these things. We'll probably have to get to brass tax when she returns. My cold is finally over, and I stopped taking the other meds too. I was worried that I was ingesting more chemicals than I was solid food for a few weeks there, and I was afraid of what ever side-affects may occur. Then I just forgot to start up on the other meds until last night. Not sure if I want to start, or need to start them again anyway, though the last few days I've been pretty edgy....but that's most likely due to.... CurryMan. Yes, my own personal anti-christ is like a case of herpes. It's un-curable, and just when you think the coast is clear, you experience an inflammation out of nowhere. So it is with my work life. I don't report to him anymore, yet he still finds a way to grind me any chance he gets. I've been documenting his actions the last week and had a meeting with certain individuals and brought my 'new' or 'ongoing' situation to light. Surprisingly, they are aware of it, and not just with me, but Curry's issues with others as well. What I can't figure out is why nobody will do anything. The best summation I can think of is they either: A) are afraid of the race card being played and therefore litigation, or B) because he is 'smart', they put up with his antics because they don't want to take the time to look for a replacement seeing that his department is under-staffed anyway.

Story LONDON, England -- A computer programmer found out his girlfriend was having an affair when his pet parrot kept repeating her lover's name, British media reported Tuesday. The African grey parrot kept squawking "I love you, Gary" as his owner, Chris Taylor, sat with girlfriend Suzy Collins on the sofa of their shared flat in Leeds, northern England. But when Taylor saw Collins's embarrassed reaction, he realized she had been having an affair -- meeting her lover in the flat whilst Ziggy looked on, the UK's Press Association reported. Ziggy even mimicked Collins's voice each time she answered her telephone, calling out "Hiya Gary," according to newspaper reports. Call-center worker Collins, 25, admitted the four-month affair with a colleague called Gary to her boyfriend and left the flat she had shared with Taylor, 30, for a year. Taylor said he had also been forced to part with Ziggy after the bird continued to call out Gary's name and refused to stop squawking the phrases in his ex-girlfriend's voice, media reports said. "I wasn't sorry to see the back of Suzy after what she did, but it really broke my heart to let Ziggy go," he said. "I love him to bits and I really miss having him around, but it was torture hearing him repeat that name over and over again. "I still can't believe he's gone. I know I'll get over Suzy, but I don't think I'll ever get over Ziggy." Taylor acquired Ziggy as a chick eight years ago and named him after the David Bowie character Ziggy Stardust. The bird has now found a new home through the offices of a local parrot dealer. Collins, who admitted the affair, said: "I'm not proud of what I did but I'm sure Chris would be the first to admit we were having problems." She added to The Guardian newspaper: "I am surprised to hear he got rid of that bird. He spent more time talking to it than he did to me."
