Just for fun

I've still not been feeling well, and have been down lately - and wallowing, it would appear. I'm not sure how much is emotional stress and strain and how much is possibly a virus (my boss is sick today, and another co-worker is out sick with something else).

But I want to say again that I am really really lucky to have such awesome and supportive friends! (You know who you are!) I cried a couple of times at work today, briefly. And it wasn't all because of Fred either. (Though some was. It's been a tough week for me on that score, and yesterday I broke down and e-mailed him simply asking how he's been. I don't know why I bothered, he won't respond. It's been three months as of last Saturday, and tomorrow would have been our 1 year anniversary).

It also hit me today that in 4 years I will have lived half of my life without my sister in it. It's been 14 years today since her car accident (some guys coming home from a party, with "open containers" in the car. They survived. I am very anti-drinking-and-driving as a result. Imagine that).

Sorry for going on like that up there...I really had meant to just paste this fun little naming quiz in here, that my co-worker buddy sent me to cheer me up. Have fun with it!

3. YOUR "FLY GIRL/GUY" NAME: (first initial of first name, first two or three letters of your last name)
- T. Al or T. Alt (these both suck…can I pick something else? J. Lo I am not)

Ha ha ha!

My porn name is Tinka Tareyton.
Though if you went with my second pet, it would be Muffin Tareyton.
Either one is hilarious!

Movie Star Name: Astrid Swedish Fish.

(Ok, I love A LOT of candy, but Swedish Fish is the first thing that entered my mind).

Soap Opera Name: Jennell Sacramento (That does sound very "sudsy").

And of course, hugs to Theresa Licorice, and Ann Oneida and Tami! :)

I also loved my rock star name:
Elizabeth Country Brook

Andy I think my Soap Star name is a little sudsy:
Elizabeth McHenry

Of course if I were to be a superhero, I would be Blue Mercury!

And here's lots of love to my good pals Astrid and Theresa!!

Lots of anniversaries going on for you this month. Maybe we should just skip the month of May...what do you think? (Jim will never age....but hey that's okay..he acts like a lil kid at 29 anyways).
You "do" have lots of friends that care for you and want you to get well, and to not be so down. Remember we are "always" here for you, no matter what! Hang in there! Time will heal everything!
Have a good day, cheer-up, and put a smile on that face of yours!! :)
We miss you at work, but we all want you to get well soon!!

Take care!
