Why Me? Penguin

Because I can never just let things go...

Did some research and lilscamp you are soo right... it is definitely always "lavender". But I found something interesting in my search which makes perfect sense and I wish I had thought of before:

Lavender

\Lav"en*der\, n. [OE. lavendre, F. lavande, It. lavanda lavender, a washing, fr. L. lavare to wash; cf. It. lsavendola, LL. lavendula. So called because it was used in bathing and washing. See Lave. to wash, and cf. Lavender.] 1. (Bot.) An aromatic plant of the genus Lavandula (L. vera), common in the south of Europe. It yields and oil used in medicine and perfumery. The Spike lavender (L. Spica) yields a coarser oil (oil of spike), used in the arts.

California here we cooooooommme!

That's right the O.C. theme is most definitely stuck in my head. My puppies are sitting here watching me eat pepper jack cubes (which I have been practically living off of for weeks now) and they are looking very offended by the fact that they aren't getting any. Oh well it would just make them sick and I have no interest in cleaning that up!

I should be doing other things seeing as how I ddin't go into to work today as I said I would, but I was just too darned tired!

Sounds Like me in my office!

Both of my bosses have Ph.D.'s so naturally I have to explain it to them:

From the Onion:
Rumsfeld Only One Who Can Change Toner In White House Printer

WASHINGTON, DC — White House sources reported Monday that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is the only cabinet member who can figure out how to change the toner in the White House printer. "Let me walk you through it again," Rumsfeld said. "You lift the toner-cartridge lid, then you move this switch back and remove the old cartridge. That goes in el garbage. Next, you remove this tape here from the new cartridge—now, that's important. If you forget that, you'll be printing blank pages all day long. Okay, so you just slide it on in, and you're good to go." When reached for comment, Rumsfeld said he doesn't mind changing the toner, but doesn't see what's so hard about it.

Pardon me while I go take my Geritol and put prune juice on the grocery list...
