She was ironically an italian woman, and she was in the bathroom clipping her toenails naked. I walked in to use the bathroom. I was originally over to hang out and play in my friend's canyon. Unfortunately, I viewed her canyon.

OK, must go to sleep. I've been starting to doze off at work lately.

Also, boss said I need to put more steam into my work after telling me how the dimensions of a part are supposed to be, and to not tell him what I think it is because he was the designer. Overall he was kind of in edgy mood this morning. I was frustrated for a bit, spent an hour staring at the drawings, did a little bit of math on paper with a calculator, as recommended by him, then went back and asked him a few questions, which led to him pulling out some even older hand drawings. As it turns out, the digital part and drawing I was working off of was wrong, the dimensions written in pencil the boss told me were correct were actually wrong, the part did change over the years which the boss had told me never happened, and what the machinist who has been making the parts was wrong.

I felt better knowing that I wasn't as stupid as the boss made me initially feel, also, the dimension were off by such small amounts that probably nothing serious would have been affected.

I'm going as well. I'm tired of editing the Eurotrip photos. They're all starting to look the same now that I'm exhausted and I have to wake up early.

LOL no, nothing crazy like that. I haven't had a burger in a very long time, and I would get water over Diet Coke anyway. My weakness is rice and juice-lots of carbs and sugar. I try to eat them as little as possible, but since the rest of my family isn't really concerned about what they eat, it's kinda tricky. Brown rice helps a bit, but too much is still too much. Also, bringing your own lunch helps, not to mention saves money, since that $7-10 a day starts to add up really quick.
