hilarity in the work place

so here i sit, taking calls like i do every day.
i have my feet propped up on my desk like so:
i sit like this every day.
i've been having a less than fantastic day today...
it's a long story, i'm not going to get into it.
i have my keyboard in my lap and my headset clipped to my shirt.
just relaxing, trying to focus on something besides my hatred of stupid people.
all of a sudden i moved slightly and felt gravity pulling me in a direction i didn't necessarily want to go...
i grabbed my half-a-cubicle partition in hopes that i could save myself.
i failed.
before i could blink i was on my back.
my keyboard was on the ground next to me
my headset cord was pulling at my shirt and the headphones were around my neck
my leg was almost in the trash can
and the right arm rest of my chair busted clean off...
all i could do was lay there and laugh.
i laughed so hard i was crying
my co-workers asked if i was ok and tried to pick my sorry self up off the floor.
i continued to laugh and had to stifle myself through an incoming call.
the crash made such a loud noise my supervisor heard it from across the call center while he was in the boss's office.
i'm still laughing...
i haven't fallen out of a chair since i was in jr high...
epic storesonline chair fail...

leaps and bounds...

wow, so i'm a bum and i never blog... i've got some down time at the workplace so i figure, why not update the world on my wonderful, crazy, off-the-wall life.

since january i've been living in the mormon mecca...
that's right, orem, utah.
i've had a good run, love my roommates, love the people i work with, love being close to relations.
the start wasn't my favorite.
as many of you know i'm not a fan of freezing my butt off...
i like it where it is, thank you.
but i survived the winter.
the sun is loving me currently.
i'm a lovely shade of brown.
my roommates and sisters are jealous. (haha)
i recently took a trip to fargo, north dakota to visit a boy...
i seriously have never been on a better vacation.
the country was beautiful.
in the words of mr. fargo, himself:
i'll say that i agree one-hundred percent.
we spent a lot of time driving around seeing the sights.
yes it's flat and pretty boring as far as terrain goes, but the open fields and farms are awesome.
we took a few trips across the river into minnesota.
i got to stand in the hand of the giant paul bunyan statue.
we also went to itasca state park, which was AWESOME.
all in all it was a very awesome vacation and i can't wait to go back.
my plan is to go back in august for another visit...
anyway, since i got back i just haven't felt like utah is the place for me anymore.
so i'm going to move back to washington.
i dont have a definite date yet, but i'm sticking around utah for the summer and then going back in the fall.
i hope to go to school at BCC (or Bellevue College) or LWTech.
i'm not sure where i'll live or what i'll do for work, but i have a couple months to figure that out.
anyway... it just feels like the right thing for me to do right now.

hope you all have a wonderful week
