Wacky Wednesday June Edition (posted on Thursday!)

Filed under: Wacky Wednesday — by corazondeswiss @ 7:24 pm

I have a nice long Wacky Wednesday post for you today. {Note: it was so long I had to stop typing last night because I was too tired to carry on.}  And I think I will have to come up with an actual system for tracking the search terms (currently it is post it notes which I then tuck into a drawer until I am ready to write a Wacky Wednesday post).  Originally I intended to do this every week, but it is fairly time consuming so I do it on a random Wednesday a few weeks apart.  Let the wackiness begin!
1. Wacky Wednesday birthday– Goes to my last Wacky Wednesday post, which I wrote the day before my birthday.
2. My contact lens prescription– Just the other day, I wrote about my recent visit to the eye doctor.
3. Frick and Frack bibs– Frick and Frack are the pseudonyms I use here for my two cats.  They have their own category.
4. Licking stitches– I get this a lot because I posted about my inability to keep my kitties from licking their stitches after they were declawed.  Note to the interweb: I am not an authority on this subject!  I found nothing that worked. 
5. Jax, FL weekend cooking school– No idea where the cooking school thing came in- I’ve had many links about cooking school.
6. Converting music from WMP (windows media player)- I did this when I had to reload my CD’s on the computer for my iPod.  For I think what might be the 3rd time, currently.  Its a very time consuming process. 
7. Dating site in Swissland– the only dating on this site is me and Cheesepuff.  Thus far we haven’t set anyone up on a date.
8. Lean Mean Thirteen– I wrote about this last week, it is the latest Stephanie Plum book by Janet Evanovich.  One of my all time favorite series of books.  I was so excited about getting it and reading it last weekend.  I read it cover to cover in one night.
9. Download CP trainer 13– Seriously, I’ve got nothing on this one.  Nothing. 
10. Dog reports on nephew did not pick up– Seriously, I’ve also got nothing on this one either.  Nothing.
11. How to survive a triple dorm– Check over here– its #8.
There you have it.  Wacky Wednesday the June edition.  Posted on Thursday!

Wacky Wednesday- Birthday edition

Filed under: Wacky Wednesday — by corazondeswiss @ 9:07 pm

Its not my birthday yet, but it will be tomorrow! 
I just looked through my site- 3 weeks since the last Wacky Wednesday!  How did that even happen? For anyone who is new, on Wednesdays (not every Wednesday) I look up the search terms people use to end up on my little blog.  I got the idea from one of my favorite bloggers and most regular commenter, Alyndabear. (Hi Aly!!) This version may be a little different than usual because I couldn’t get Google to work, so I used Yahoo! Search instead.  Anyway, on with the wackiness!
1. “I’m moving on” – is the title of a category here on Corazon de Swiss.  It’s entries dedicated to the period of time when I was preparing to move home. 
2. How to keep your cat from licking stitches and licking stitches cats– I had my cats declawed when we moved in with my parents to keep them from destroying their new leather furniture.  Instead, they are just marking the house with pee.  Which is a another entry in and of itself.  (Note to self: Have not blogged about this recently. Save for slow blogging day).  I asked people not send hate mail.  The boys have recovered nicely despite their propensity for licking the stitches post surgery.  I didn’t not find a deterrent, btw. 
3. What happens when a toenail does not grow– Fortunately after the toenail-splitting incident, my toenail is indeed growing.  So I don’t know what happens when it doesn’t grow. 
4. Too nearsighted – I am nearsighted, but I can still see to read without my glasses or contacts.  Someday I want to be brave like Aly and get laser surgery, but I’m still a little freaky about it. 
5. Frick and Frack – posts about the above mentioned cats.  They have their own category and in real life, better names than Frick and Frack.  🙂 It’s just a pseudonym I use here to protect the innocent.  And keep people I know in real life from finding me.  For now. 
6. How to pronounce Brie– Its the first syllable of my real first name and that’s all you are getting for now.  BTW, its pronounced Bree. 
7. Go Gators Anniversary– Ummm, I’m a Gator fan? My anniversary was last month?  Seriously, no idea. 
8. How to survive a triple dorm– That I know the answer to- hope that your other 2 roommates are not friends from high school who tend to leave you out.  And become total witches when Housing calls about you moving and you want to take your time deciding where to move into. 
9. Parrafin wax bath blog– I’m not even sure I’ve mentioned parrafin on this blog.  However, I am a fan- it makes your hands so smooth and soft.

Wacky Wednesday

Filed under: Wacky Wednesday — by corazondeswiss @ 9:11 pm

Here we are back to Wacky Wednesday and I owe everyone for a couple of weeks without Wacky Wednesday.  Let the Wackiness begin!!

1. Tradition of smearing name on birthday cake– I talked about this during the Weekend Update when we used the tradition my friend M taught us years ago on my birthday weekend.  In her family, the birthday person was required to smear their name icing, put it on their nose, and wear it while eating their piece of cake.  Silently.  And everyone else talks about the birthday person.  Fun, no?
2. Proverb its my anniversary 2day– Actually my anniversary was about a month ago.  And I didn’t get my engagement ring.  Instead I recently received an all expenses paid trip to Jacksonville, complete with a stay at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront.  Sweet. I’d have settled for the engagement ring.
3. culinary school in swissland– I have nothing on this one.  I’ve never been to culinary school.  Haven’t even thought about it.
4. Physician paycheck bounced– I know how you feel- my paycheck bounced twice too.  You can read about it here and here.  I found a new job and moved. 
5. Cooking school in swissland– I cook, but only a very little bit, and even less so now that I moved home.  Sorry I can’t help you out.
6. How to keep cat from licking stitches– I don’t know how to do it. I tried peroxide and rubbing alcohol to no avail.  Hope you have better luck than I did.  Let me know if you find something that works!
7. Basketball in swissland– Here’s what I know about bball: The Florida Gators are the National Champs in Men’s Basketball 2006 & 2007.  And they won me $180 in CP’s office pool last year and $50 this year.  Go Gators!  (See how picking the team you like works way better than those spreadsheets those engineering boys used?)
8. Frick and Frack– is what I call my cats on this blog.  Their nome de plume, if you will.  Helps keep me anonymous (as anonymous as an interweb blogger can be). 
9. Employer bounced paycheck– See #4.  Dudes, you’ve got my sympathies.

That’s all the wackiness for this week!
P.S. Am working on 100 things…hope to debut soon.  Stupid word formatting did not work in wordpress.  Must retype.  Makes me mad.  Boo hiss!

Wacky Wednesday

Filed under: Wacky Wednesday — by corazondeswiss @ 7:18 pm

Welcome to Wacky Wednesday!  It has certainly been wacky for me as we have gone “LIVE” with the new computer system at the hospital where I work.  And I will be SO glad when the transitional time is over.  Everyone is SO stressed.  And honestly, I haven’t had a problem yet, outside of the usual ones (the secretary wrote the wrong doctor’s name on the computer order).  No biggie.  Went out to dinner with my mom tonight b/c my dad is at his Men’s Club.  Its some thing where he goes to meet these “good old boys” and they eat steak, drink beer, tell lies and talk about bullshit.  Whatever.  Some women would be all uptight about the men only deal, but my mom is way over it.  Too funny. 
Anyway, on with the Wackiness…
1.  When is frack have his baby? Dude, you got me on this one.  If my Frack has a baby, well he’s got some ‘splaining to do.  What with him being a boy and all, plus he’s been neutered.  So as his mama, I’d be very distressed if Frack was having a baby.  I don’t know of any other Fracks and when/if he is expecting.

2. I’m going to kill someone– Okay seriously, if I get this again I’m going to change the name of this post, because its freaking me out!

3. Can my employer take back a relocation bonus?– I don’t know the exact answer to that question.  My advice to you would be to find out if you had to sign an agreement when you signed on.  Personally, I did and I had to agree to work for the company for a year in order to receive the bonus.  If I leave before the year is up, I have to pay back a pro-rated amount.  Hope that helps.

4. Wacky Wednesday at Work– Well, that is the title of this new feature on my blog, and I’m having one today.  Hope yours is not as wacky as mine! 

P.S.  Thanks to Alyndabear for all the awesome comments.  They make my day! And I apologize to anyone who may have lost comments to the spam collector here, I can’t seem to catch anything before it gets deleted. 
P.P.S.  Just so you know, I’m working on my 100 things about me…

Wacky Wednesday, with wackiness outside of the searches!

Filed under: Wacky Wednesday — by corazondeswiss @ 8:54 pm

So not only do I wackiness in the searches, I have extra wackiness in my life!  On with the searches!

1. My paycheck did not clear– I get this one frequently because of this incident.  All I can say is: Dude, I feel your pain.  And you might want to think about getting a new job!

2. Relationships tired of waiting for him– I get this one frequently too.  Probably has to do with CP and his lack of a proposal.  Again I say, honey, I feel your pain.  I wish I knew what to say/tell you/tell him/do, because if there was something I’d sure be doing it!

3. Ingredients for a Corazon– This is the first time I’ve gotten this one, and I don’t know anything about it.  I like to cook, but I don’t know how to cook a Corazon. 
It’s been slow week web wise in Swissland, so that’s all the web wackiness…on with the real life wackiness!

First- the freezer broke yesterday, so my mom called Sears (they’re not coming until tomorrow between 8AM and Noon).  This morning when we left for work, the freezer was working.  By the time my mom came home at about 10, the freezer was no longer working.  Now, neither is the refrigerator!
Then, my mom called me at work early this afternoon because the washing machine simultaneously died and flooded the laundry room.  So she had to go to the laundrymat.  Which meant I had to go after work, because I was going to do laundry at home tonight.  The only bonus of the laundrymat is you can do all your loads at once. 
I did however scald my tongue on Egg Drop Soup when we went to get Chinese while waiting on the clothes to dry, so it’ll be a couple of days before that heals.  Hopefully in time for sweet potato fries on Sunday with my sister and Dentist while I am in G’ville!
And now, as I’ve been sitting in here typing, my big boy kitty dragged fluffy pink bathrobe into my room and began making it into a bed! 
That’s all the wackiness I can stand for one day…I don’t know about all of you!

Wacky Wednesday

Filed under: Wacky Wednesday — by corazondeswiss @ 8:32 pm

I’m an imitator (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery dear readers!) took the Love and Hate from Janet.  Now I’m going to start posting my thoughts on search terms a la Alyndabear‘s Sunday Google-age.  But I’m going to do it on a new day- Wednesday and title it Wacky Wednesday!  How about that? On with the search terms!
1. dating Corazon – not sure how this led someone here or why you’d choose that as your search terms- I’m only dating one boy and that’s my Cheesepuff.  Sorry boys!  Besides, is a Hispanic dating site.  Good luck!

2. What does Frick and Frack mean? I just use it as a nickname for my 2 cats.  Actually my brother called my sister and I that when we were being especially sisterly (read: annoying him).   Something to describe a pair of cats, annoying sisters…

3. Ringwatch – The term I use to describe my less than patient wait for Cheesepuff to present me with an engagement ring- ask me to marry him and begin our life together.  So far, no ring but I’ll keep watching!

4. I’m going to kill someone – I titled a post this after my paycheck bounced.  I promise no people were harmed and interestingly enough, this is probably what people most frequently use to search for me.  Its a lot scary that I’m so well remembered for that.  I am thinking that I might edit the name of the post, because it kind of freaks me out. 

5. Cheesepuff– this is the nome de plume of my beloved.  He has his own category. It is from Cheesepuff I am awaiting the above mentioned ring.

6. Pepto– Again not sure why someone looking for pepto would click on my little blog.  All I can tell you is that pepto is my medication of choice for an upset stomach, especially in the middle of the night.  When I lived alone I would drink it straight from the bottle in the fridge.  It’s not the best tasting stuff, but it usually helps and upset stomach. 

Allright kids, that’s it for today.  I’ve got laundry in the dryer and to pick up my room a bit as the housekeeper comes tomorrow and I don’t want to have to clean my room myself.  Plus I should go to bed early- I’ve got to be up early to be at the dealership to have a recall on my car repaired.  I need to be there by 7:15 because the first courtesy shuttle leaves at 7:30.  And I have to be at work with Chocolate trifle in tow by 8 AM.  (Birthday potluck for all the rehab team members who have a birthday this month).  And tomorrow night packing for my weekend away….oh why am I still typing?!!
