2011 -- The Year Of No Fear

I have declared 2011 to be The Year of No Fear!  I will be brave!  I will conquer!  I will be fearless this year! To demonstrate said fearlessness, I will begin doing the following:

I will work the crossword puzzles in ink! Oh, wait, I already do that...

OK, then, I will engage in knitting complicated lace patterns using yarn barely thicker than an eyelash!  Oh, wait, I already do that....

OK, then, I will regularly walk dogs whose combined weight exceeds my own!  Oh, wait, I already do that...

I know, I will drive to Memphis by myself!  Oh, wait...yeah, I'm sensing a trend here.

Wait, wait, I've got it! This year, I will tell my boss exactly what I think of his ideas! Nah, I said fearless, not stupid.

Hmmm, I'm going to have to get back to you on this one...

I saw Former Group Leader Rod at work today, and asked him if he missed me being on his line. He gave me The Look, and said, "Now, why do you want to go asking a question you already know the answer to?"

Later on, Vanessa and I were talking about some of our favorite TV shows from when we were kids.  Two that she mentioned were The Six Million Dollar Man, and The Bionic Woman.  I loved those shows!  I told Vanessa that I used to play The Bionic Woman in my backyard and here I imitated the slow motion running that they used in the show.  Vanessa started laughing and pointing behind me, so I turned around and Brian and Steve were just staring at me as if they thought I'd lost my marbles.

Vanessa is so much easier to work with than my former brazing partner, but I still miss Rod. 

And yes, we will be starting Saturday work this week. They don't seem to believe in easing us back into the routine. 

I'd done this once before, but Sus posted her map on her blog, so I decided to do it again.  She has been quite a few more places than I have.  I need to get caught up!

If you count layovers in airports, you can add New York and Pennsylvania to that list.

There is a world map available, too, but since mine would just contain the United States and Italy, we won't go there. I did have layovers in Shannon, Ireland and Rota, Spain, but since I never left the airport, we won't count them.

LOL! My friend and I used to play Bionic Woman all the time!! We had elaborate plots that we still talk and laugh about whenever we see each other. And the sound effects! I had to do them while I was reading. 'Cause I'm still a total dork. :D

Be fearless -- play Bionic Woman and let the boys stare. Hee!

I tried to explain to poor Brian what I was doing, but he'd never even heard of those shows. They were a bit before his time.

Ha! I know what you mean. Certain things just fly over the head of younger peoople. Man, I sound old...
