I am a spreadsheet rock star

I try not to talk about work too much – other than evil boss stories – but I have to tell you about my genius.

You may know that I work in non-profit & am a fundraiser. You may remember that I was cruelly fired from my job that was stressful and wonderful and educational and perfect and I hate the fucking bitch who couldn’t handle the fact that I knew what I was doing, and she didn’t (know what I was doing OR what she was doing).

I currently work at a tiny non-profit. Which means I am not only the annual campaign manager, I am also the accountant, the admin, the capital campaign director, and the program manager. Our program is building stuff. Our current project is just finished (6 months behind schedule), and I came in 6 months ago.

So, the books? are a mess. And I? do not have either a construction management or a financial background. So I? was lost. And things looked bad. Like almost $100K short bad.

Our board member who is a cost estimator and has done construction management came in today. And we went through everything. And there was praise for me for finding the most grievous errors. And sympathy for me and empathy, becuase the billing (from the contractor)? was way fucked up. And now, instead of $100K short, we are $20K to the good.

I is smart. That is the conclusion to which I came today.

Also, I figured out how to update my work website today using Dreamweaver.

I am a goddess of boring crap! YAY!

I feel that a little worship is in order. The evil boss promised to buy me a martini soon for helping to figure out the financial stuff.

However, do not get the impression that I will work for martinis. I mean, I will, but don’t be passing that info around.

Now – I have a date. 🙂

America’s Next Top Model

I accidentally watched this last night (I was looking for election results and got sucked in) and did you know that there is a candidate from South Dakota?  Pretty damn cool.  I am also from South Dakota (as you may recall) which means that I am also a top model just by association.  Although, I actually eat sometimes.

Of course, she’s the one that got kicked off right away, because she was too “small town” and didn’t have any potential.  Stupid show.


I have been waiting and waiting and waiting to show you this porn. I saw these shoes AFTER posting last week’s porn (completely accidentally – I wasn’t even surfing for porn at the time – I was indulging in my other weakness: celebrity gossip. Lindsey Lohan was wearing these) and fell in love. But, I waited, because I am strong!

So – here are my new favorite shoes. I think I have found true love. I think it will finally be more than a one night stand (hee)


If only I could afford these shoes.  Do you think they’ll wait for me?
