Hug, Back Stab

That's what leaving Charlotte and returning to Pittsburgh is like. Very hot for the '08. Almost makes me never want to go home again. Almost. The graduation was horrendous. The speaker was boring (I have no idea what he talked about other than the title of his speech and that was in the book) and long-winded (after 10 minutes, he said I have 6 points. SON OF A!!) Sigh. Then for her departmental where you actually hear the names? Another speaker. Y'all are out of control. I'm back in the burgh. It's raining and coldish-- 61, wind at 17 mph. At home? 78. High here tomorrow? 56. Lows in the 30s tomorrow night. So over it. Kill me now. And I have to go to work tonight. Bah humbug. But let me tell you how cute I looked yesterday!!! At 8:30 a.m. before we even got out of the hotel lobby I was being eye-stalked. Of course I took pics and they are forthcoming. I have to be at work in about 7 hours so I should probably go to sleep huh? Yeah. Holla!

Anyone THAT bad needs to be identified so we can all avoid him/her at all costs.

Gotta love that Spring Pgh Weather.

Considering that public speaking is supposed to be the #1 fear of people in our part of the world, I find it surprising that so many speakers are willing to drone on and on and on...

Looking forward to those pics!

I hate eye-stalkers...I mean I like being noticed, but that staring thing will make me give you a quick side eye. Unless he's hot...then you get a wink and a come hither smile. lol

The weather in Jersey sucks too!

Did you see where Charlotte was named the best place to live?

I hate outside graduations. But glad you enjoyed yourself? Who was the speaker

This is what I typed last night, but didn't save or something like it.

I have 6 points to this comment...

1. I luv your terminology. eye stalk is classic.

2. Does anyone ever pay attention to the speakers at a graduation?

3. I had a third point but I don't remember it.

Okay, I don't really have 6 points. LOL

Hurray for fabulous looking days. It's hot hot hot here - so that's on it's way to you - probably later this week?

I'm glad you went - and I know you're sister will never forget it. Graduations usually suck so... My mater's ceremony? The guy was not one of our professors - he talked about his research into negative press. Nice uplifting topic for a Master's in Clinical Psych graduation.
