Weekly Words Challenge 28!

The words for this week were Treasure and Junk.

Due to extreme road fatigue, photos won't be posted until tomorrow. I promise they'll be worth the wait. After I landed on the couch last night, somewhere between 8 and I-don't-give-a-shit-anymore p.m., I didn't move. I'm not sure I could move. For awhile I wondered if my fingers would be permanently stuck in a steering position.

Then I came into work this morning to find that two employees had called out sick for the week and that I had been unanimously nominated in to fill their spots. I love how these votes always happen when the person being voted on is conveniently GONE. Thanks assholes. So that pretty much blew my vacation recap post today too.

Until things get straightened out again, which will be tomorrow, feel free to comment here when you've posted your WWC pictures and stop by the other participants' blogs to check out their entries. Go on. I hear someone posted boobies. BOOBIES! And that's not just an immature ploy to get you to leave my blog either. No way.

The words for next week are:

If you haven't joined the fun, go
here for details. Happy Snapping!

I'm glad you're back.

I didn't play because, I never play. :-)

Let's think of some good revenge for the jerks that nominated you. While we're thinking, you can start by wiping some boogers under their chairs or desk. I used to do that and it is actually fun.

I played but mine are no where near as good as BOOBIES. Who did THAT?

Era? Oh man. I'll have to think about that one.

I have mine up.

Glad you are home, bummer about work. Will have to go find me some boobies!

While you were gone, I totally didn't riffle through your underwear drawer much.

BTW, the flower goes in the front right?

How do you call in sick for the week?! I NEED to know how to swing that.

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger gr said...

Ok, I posted mine, no b**bies! I mean, my mom and dad look at my blog!
As for your work situation, you can be excused for putting a dead fish into the desk drawers of the guys who called in sick...

Q: What's worse than one person calling in sick at work?

A: TWO people calling in sick!

I know your pain. As manager, I fill in for anyone and everyone in my department when they're away. One time my whole staff got the same flu so it was just me filling in for three of them, and my own job. :-p That sucked.

Hi Tink! Welcome home, but sorry to hear about the extra workload! It's like being on a committee, and missing one meeting - those who were at that one meeting take a smug satisfaction in "volunteering" you for the most hideous task..
My pics are up, and I will be checking out everybody else's once I get back from taking out-of-town friends to lunch and antiquing in old-town Glendale.
Boy, Tink - you sure are raising the bar with "era" - too bad I already used the pics of the ceramics my mother posed for back in the 40's! Now I'll really have to think about this...

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Yeah, I'm thinking "Era" is going to be a hard one. Way to make us think! I'm may go ahead and give up on that one now and avoid the frustration. LOL .. Kidding. ;-)

See, what happened at work was they had those two people call in for a the whole week and they knew they needed somebody to cover. So, they sat down and discussed it, and decided that YOU were, BY FAR, the most reliable person to ask. They asked you because they knew YOU could handle it and they wouldn't have to worry about things getting done properly. It really is a huge compliment that they would trust you to do something this important.

Okay, so nobody every buys that line. How bout this though ... Now you get to tell everybody at work what burden it is for you to have to take on all this extra and point out to them that you guess they just weren't good enough at their jobs to be trusted with this. Maybe that will make you feel better.

WAIT ... did you say "boobies?"

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Glad you are back, sad that you have to do the work of three people. Next week should be very interesting!

Take the desk drawers out and put them back in upside down.

Awww I'm disappointed that you're not done with yours yet but I understand road fatigue. Will have something to look forward to tomorrow then.

Mine are up, later than I thought too, but just had a busy day.

Another slideshow. Yay me! :)

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger Ginni Dee said...

Mine are up!

I was thinking that ERA is going to be a tough one too. We can do it tho...it will be fun to try anyway.

Boobies? Aw heck, I see them everyday!

Can't wait to see your WWC pix!

Sounds like you had a grueling trip!!

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger R.E.H. said...

Boobies? Where are the boobies???

Can't wait to read up on your vacation recap, and see your pictures for this week. You rest up, now.

I got my WWC posted!

Posted & Posted. As in, last week's AND this week's. Two separate ones. Just scroll down. Does it sound like I'm begging you to stop by? 'Cuz I probably am. And yes, I've got B's on mine, but not the kind y'all are trying to find right now. Just the kind that hang out at my house. See, now doncha wanna come see? :)

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger meno said...

Can't wait to see what you post for "Junk." Heh.

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Oh man, that sucks at work, hope you get lots of rest and be sure that everyone else showers you with glory for a job well done.

At 25 March, 2008, Blogger Joshua said...

I wish I could be cool and make a post with boobies in it. :o

I don't know how long your drive was, but I do know long drive suck. I have done a few road trips ranging from 300 - 700 miles one way.

At least there's a few good blogs to read.

I can't wait to see pictures :)

At 26 March, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

LOl! Waiting to see what you've come up with junk :)

At 26 March, 2008, Blogger Jo said...

Mine are up finally, NOT boobies. Would those be considered treasures or junk?

I loved Reb's idea.

At 26 March, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oh how I feel your pain.

At 26 March, 2008, Anonymous Janet said...

ahhhh, a new photo challenge! Mine's up, also not boobies, so sad.

At 26 March, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

I wanted to say something smart you know. But then you said Boobies. And then FuriousBall started talking about wearing women's panties and now I can't stop picturing him wearing little flowered undies. It really creeps me out to think of a guy wearing my panties. It seems to me the workload is not the worst of your problems because not only are you probably wearing one of those pairs of panties right now, but you also have to go buy all new ones and burn the old ones and then disinfect yourself. Sheesh.
