The Villian I Must Be On The Lookout For!

You scored as Elliot, Be warned that you could fall prey to an Elliot! While he may appear to be extremely agreeable, you will find he is political in order to achieve a position. If you do not help him in his ambition, he will find someone else to use. Question his motives!

I'm feeling a bit crap right now. I don't know why exactly. Maybe it's just a combination of many things.

I'm working on the stupid Roberts Collection, and I am so sick and tired of it. I'm so tired of finding random pieces of crap tucked into odd places. I'm tired of Roberts's crap that will never be used. I'm tired of the feeling I get when I look at all the boxes--the feeling that this will never end. It needs to end--and not just for my sanity, but there are other collections that I need to be working on.

I found out today I have to go--excuse me, I get to go to the CIMA conference in October down at BYU. I hate BYU. And the prospect of sitting through a conference of archivists at BYU is really quite ghastly.

Plus, I'm worried about some things, and angry about others, but I won't go into them. I haven't slept well this week, so I'm tired and worn out. I'm getting a headache too, and my eye won't stop twitching. This is a very complain-ey blog!

On the positive side, I'm going to the Davis County rodeo tonight with my family. I actually had fun the last time we went, even though I wasn't expecting to. It's kind of exciting watching the cowgirls doing the barrel races, and the cowboys on those bucking broncos and bulls. Plus, I like being with the family--it settles and regrounds me.

OK, I think I've got to go take some Tylenol for this headache.

My Show is Back, People!!!!

OK, so it's not back back yet, as in back on the air, but the cast and crew of The Office are back on set (and location) filming new episodes for season 4. Spoilers are beginning to abound, and the blogs and message boards are coming back to life. I love this time of year!! ;)

The first episode is called "Fun Run" and from the little bit I'm reading about it, the episode sounds very funny. And we've got the first filming pictures of the season!! Here's a great JAM picture that fills my heart with all kinds of joy and happiness:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

According to the guy that took the picture, when "action" was called there was lots of hand-holding and laughing between Jim and Pam, so I am so super-duper excited for this season premier that I can't even begin to describe it! I keep telling myself that I'll stay away from all the spoilers, but I have no will-power. Oh well, what can I say? I'm a sucker for spoilers.

Only 43 more days until the premier!!

Fighting the Boredom

I'm in the middle of processing a collection, but I needed a quick break, so I thought I'd post some random thoughts and experiences. Just because.

**Jessica and I went to a laundromat about a month ago. It was quite the experience. The only things on TV were Spanish soap operas and soccer games broadcast in Spanish. Then a man brought in his dog while he did his laundry. The dog was very sweet, and mostly well behaved (he liked to bark), but I've never seen a dog in a laundromat before. As I said, an experience.

**Jessica and I actually went to our ward on Sunday and attended all our meetings! Sad thing: they didn't bring the sacrament out to the foyer where we were sitting. Funny thing: our Sunday School teacher shared his experience getting "Dear-John-ed" while on his mission. It involved The Lion King (from which he shared clips) and was truly hilarious. Interesting thing: we met a guy who lives in our apartment building, and he was very nice. He helped direct us to the people we needed to talk to about transferring our records to the ward.

**Today is August 1st!; that means CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!! Yes, friends and family, as per Johnson family tradition, Christmas music is now free game until the end of December, and the Christmas countdown officially begins--only five more months!!! I've been listening to Bing Crosby's White Christmas album, and when I get home I'll be sure to put on Manheim Steamroller--yes!!

I know I had other random thoughts and so forth to share, but I've forgotten them in the excitement over Christmas ;) hehehe. I better get back to work anyway, so I'll post again later.

p.s. my apologies to you Kira, if you're still reading my blog. Shall I listen to some Hanukkah songs in honor of you? ;) Love and miss ya!
