THE CHALLENGERS: Chad, Heather, Justin, Mark, Lori, Ashely and Brantley

1. Do not talk about others (even if it is just joking). In particular, do not suggest Celebrity Death Match-esque battles between your co-workers and your Client's co-workers.
2. If you must talk about others, do it verbally versus via email.
3. If you must talk about others and it must be via email, do not copy your Client. They might not find the Celebrity Death Match-esque idea funny.
4. If you must talk about others and it must be via email and you do, in fact, copy your Client, be prepared to feel totally embarrassed, have an apology ready and make sure to instate damage control.
Lesson Learned: No more funny business via email!
On the flip side, I did read five chapters of The King of Torts and watched 3:10 to Yuma. All of which would not have probably happened if I had taken my computer home. Maybe I should leave it at work more often. Hmmmm…..

So, imagine how excited I was today to hear that Whole Foods was giving away free reusable shopping bags today as part of their BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) campaign! Plastic bags will no longer be available after April 2008 in the store. Unfortunately, I arrived after the promotion ended, but still bought two cute bags for $4. Super cheap and super great for the environment! Yea! Go Green!

Sunday night, some of us Colonial kids attended Anthem at Apex Baptist Church. It was a super awesome praise and worship good time where we just lifted our voices to God in praise. I've spent some time thinking about the word anthem and what it means. When I looked it up online, the first definition I came across defined anthem as being a song of devotion or loyalty. I pray that the song of my life is just that - actions, thoughts and words of pure devotion and loyalty to God and that I embrace the words of the anthems that I sing not only with my lips, but with my whole being.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord
All the earth
Make a joyful noise to the Lord
All the earth
The flowers of the field
Are cry'n to be heard
The trees of the forest
And all of the mountains
With one voice
Are joining the chorus of this world
And I will not be silent
I will not be quiet anymore
Running through the forest
Dive into the lake
Bare feet on beaches white
Standing in the canyon
Painted hills around
The wind against my skin
Every blade of grass will sing

1. The Duchess no longer reigns supreme as having the best hair in the ACC.
He was over-thrown by Bambale Osby.
2. Not every day is a happy day for the Tar Heels.

Welcome to my blog!
I’ve spent the past few weeks telling people I wanted to start a blog and pondering what to write in my first post. After much debate and coming to the realization that it is in fact a new year and we’re off to a fresh start, I’ve decided to share with you my goals for 2008. Goals? That’s right, goals. Some say it’s my way out of being held accountable as they are not resolutions. I say resolutions set you up for failure and that just ain't good for the soul.
So, grab a glass of sweet tea, check out my bio for more info and stop by often to see what I’m hollerin’ at ya! I think it’s going to be a great year and we’ll revisit this post in January ’09 to see if I am right!
Without further ado, here are my goals for 2008 (in no particular order):
1. I need to be more conscientious of my spending. I make plenty of money yet I never seem to have plenty of money. I’m not sure where it all goes, but I have a feeling the managers of Sushi Blues might.
My goal: To review my budget/spending each month and make a good effort to adhere to it. So long, Spicy Tuna!
2. My teeth are slowly rotting out of my head. It is hard for me to talk about as I am terrified of looking like Jethro’s sister. My driver’s license picture already looks like the most wanted poster of a woman on the run from embezzling money at the local Piggly Wiggly.
My goal: Make Dr. Bolus proud and stop drinking soft drinks! (There will be a memorial service for the Pepsi-Cola.)
3. We got a BOGO!
My goal: Start that blog I keep saying I’m going to start. Start my bucket list. WHOOT! WHOOT! Half a check mark here!
4. To build on the farewell of the Spicy Tuna.
My goal: To cook dinner more often and eat out lunch only once a work week.
5. NEW YORK CITY! Wait - been there, done that.
My goal: Visit one new place in these here United States.
6. I can’t find my…..
My goal: Clean out my closet! And by clean, I mean organize, straighten, and be able to find stuff when I need it. Maybe if I do that, I’ll find Scott who mysteriously disappeared two years ago after he said he was going to call. Hasn’t been seen since.
7. Get into the Word. I am a Christian and my personal time with God is important to me. However, I never seem to have enough time. How can you grow a relationship if you don’t spend time with someone?
My goal: To be more committed to my daily personal time and my personal bible study.
8. So, home girl needs some guns.
My goal: Hit the gym at least two times a week. Hey, Atlanta wasn’t built in a day! Baby steps ya’ll!
9. Music begins to play (Chariots of Fire).
My goal: In 2006, I ran my first marathon. Two years later, I’m itching to do another. Those happy exercise endorphins are like crack or something.
10. I like to read chick lit and Grisham books. Maybe I can educated myself with some of them there smart people stories.
My goal: To read two classics that I haven’t read before.
