Fun Fact Friday #9

In honor of the sad news about the demise of Polaroid Instant film I give you this bizarre fact:

A Polaroid emulsion transfer is an image made by 'cooking' a Polaroid in hot water until the image separates from its paper backing. The emulsion of the image can then be placed on practically any surface.

Guess you won't be able to do that for much longer. And pray tell who figured this out?

Oh and happy leap day! Guess I should have had a fact for that, huh? Well I guess you'll have to wait four years for that! LOL!

Fun Fact Friday #8

This weekend marks my SuperBowl...yep, the Oscars. In honor of this most special of events, I give you an Oscar inspired Fun Fact...

Four best-picture winners won an Oscar in every category for which they were nominated: 2003’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” 1987’s “The Last Emperor,” 1958’s “Gigi” and 1934’s “It Happened One Night.”

This year's telecast is being hosted my one of my major TV crushes Jon Stewart - yay! And if you are in need of more Oscar Trivia, you can find it here.


I'm still REALLY behind on catching with you all...things are still really crazy with work (and if you can believe it got even crazier this week). I know...deep breath!

Fun Fact Friday #7

A raisin dropped in a fresh glass of soda will bounce up and down continually from the bottom of the glass to the top.

Now that is something I think I might need to try this weekend...just because!

So sorry I've been 'blog-silent' is CRAZY! Although I knew it was eventually going to happen, my boss/best friend is out to celebrate the birth of his very beautiful daughter Madeline! She is just the sweetest little thing! I just love babies!!!

Unfortunately, he didn't completely transition over some of the work, so not only do I have more work (which I had tons already), but there's a lot of extra work to try and 'figure it out'! I know I could call him (heck, I've been over his house practically every night to get to know my 'niece'), but I just want him to focus on his wife and new daughter - gosh, it's weird to say that!

Hopefully I will be able to catch up with you wonderful ladies this weekend!

Fun Fact Friday #6

Happy Birthday Legos!!!  It's been 50 years since Lego building bricks first hit stores!!!  And according to Time Magazine, 7 sets of Legos are sold every second by retailers worldwide.  Not THAT'S a lot of Legos.
I have to this day, Legos are STILL one of my favorite toys!

If you call me...

A friend of mine just sent this to me and I'm seriously considering adding this to my incoming voicemail at work...

Hi, you have reached the voicemail box of XXX...

If you are obsessive-compulsive, please press 1, repeatedly.

If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2.

If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6.

If you are paranoid-delusional, we know who you are and what you want. Just say on the line so we can trace the call.

If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which number to press.

I have found that in my new role I've become mother/sister/daughter confessor-problem solver-go to gal. Part of me really likes this, likes to be in the know, but part of me is like - "leave me alone I have my own work to do dammit!!!! Go solve your own damn problems!!!!" Ahhhh, I feel better now.

It's just been so crazy/hard. I mean I still work on the same team, with generally the same people but there is just SOOOO much to do and a lot of it is new (financial stuff and I suck at math!) so there is a learning curve. Add to that 2 people about to go have babies and me covering for them, you get the picture...I'm doing the job of like 4 people!!! Plus I'm a perfectionist, hate to fail and hate to let people down. I know, I just need to remember to breathe, right?

Sit back, relax and laugh your ass off!

Fun Fact Friday #5

This one is for Maryann...

In Disney’s Fantasia, the Sorcerer to whom Mickey played an apprentice was named Yensid - Disney spelled backward.

And a bonus since this is Super Bowl Weekend...
Apparently Super Bowl Sunday is the least crowded day of the year to visit Disneyland!
