Coffee in my car
Posted on April 2, 2012 by sueromeisr-copyright

Most people love to drink a fresh cup of coffee no matter where you are; whether out and about or just hanging out. There’s nothing better than a good cup of coffee to make your day go better or just to relax and enjoy it.

With the coffee to go rage that’s one thing, but by the time you get back into your car the coffee has cooled off a bit and that can be somewhat disappointing if it’s cold outside.

But there is supposedly a new gadget that can help you while you are driving. How it works I am not too sure but can image though that it takes some pretty tricky maneuvering to drive and make coffee at the same time.

You just backed your car out of the driveway and head down the street and think to yourself “It’s high time for a fresh cup of coffee” and so what do you do?
You get out your little coffee maker gadget and turn it on and press a few buttons and place a porcelain mug (no paper cups please) under the thing that squirts out the coffee and there you go a hot cup of good’ol coffee! Oh, I forgot you need to put some coffee in the thing too..Sorry

I am starting to get the jitters from the caffeine in my coffee so I better be careful here or I may get forgetful…

What worries me with this whole set-up is as a gal -> how can I drive, make coffee and put my make-up on all at the same time, and still keep my eye on the road, and maybe send a couple of text messages to my gal friends saying that I’m having a fresh cup of coffee in my car. Or you guys too -> read the newspaper (whatever section interests you) make your coffee and send out a couple of emails from your handheld device, and also keep your eye on the road. Has anyone managed to do that???

I bet there are some seminars out there for this problem and I am going to register for one of them and earn a certificate in making coffee in my car.

Though guys and gals must be careful not to spill any of their coffee on themselves because if they don’t have the built-in dry cleaners in their car than that could means trouble with a capital ”T” !!

You cannot get out of the car with a coffee stain on your cloths because everyone would then know that you have the coffee gadget but not the dry cleaning gadget and that could really put a spot on your day…

I see this as real multi-tasking and by the time I get to work I am ready for the day. Plus to solve my dirty cup problem I’ve installed a mini dish washer in my car, so that I don’t have any dirty mugs lying around in my car when I come out in the evening after work.

I wonder just how many people own such a thing and do you need a special license to use it because it sounds like it may be part of one of those new ways to drive your car and therefore you need a special coffee-making license. But either way you look at it; it maybe a “must have” for 2012.

Enjoy a good cup of coffee wherever you are!

Toilet Paper Today!

Hi, everyone out there in the world who is at home or in their home office wondering is there anything out there that can bring a little smile to my face???
Well, maybe this little repost can, and have a great day wherever you are in the world and the most important thing is to stay healthy!!

Turmoil with Toilet Paper
Posted on March 26, 2012 by sueromeiser (copyright)

This tidbit of information is something that you must know about.(I am busy tomorrow bossing people around, so I thought I would post it now)

I could hardly believe my eyes when I read that there are public buildings with toilet paper shortages. This means that supplies are running out and that one should always have a spare roll of toilet paper with them whenever they leave the house.
For us gals that’s no problem because we have our trusty handbag with us so a roll can be stuffed in it.
But for guys I see a problem because you can’t walk around with a roll of toilet paper in your hand; though maybe it could be a new fashion accessory for 2012?

Toilet paper holder for guys; a must for 2012 and you could also get a special toilet roll holder for your car and it’s standard in all new models. And the most important “must have” toilet paper App, so you know where to buy the brand you want.

Plus, just image color coordinated roll of toilet paper that either matches your shirt or suit that you are wearing and at the same time you are prepared for anything because you have your trusty roll of toilet paper with you. I am going to suggest this to my husband and he can give a presentation about this to his male business colleagues and they then can decide on how to best approach this problem. And once I know the answer I will let you know. Ok?

Just writing this here gives me a feeling that I must go and check to see that I have enough rolls of toilet paper here because leaving the house without my trusty roll could be dangerous if I have to go unexpectedly and I don’t have my roll with me and there is no one else around with a roll either. Maybe I will go out and buy a family pack later on today and then I am ready for all toilet paper problems.

Think about it- no one ever really thinks about the wonders of a roll of toilet paper. That stuff has been around for years in all colors and quality. I love toilet paper and am not ashamed to admit it. And I bet there’s some of you out there too who love toilet paper but just don’t want to admit it.

There’s the sort of recycled toilet paper that would take the skin off your backside if you used it -> it’s environmentally friendly cause it’s a gray color and after you use it you may need a tube of hemorrhoid ointment to protect you from the environmentally friendly toilet paper. So how am I protecting the environment?

Then there’s the bright colored sort -> My gran (great woman) always had purple because it matched her bathroom and turned the water in the toilet bowl the same color. I used to love to go into the bathroom as a kid and just tear off the sheets and throw them into the water and watch it change color in a matter of seconds. Doing that was better than any computer game and provided hours of fun too.

Now I don’t want to think about what it did to my backside let alone the chemicals that were in it. But hey, I’m still alive and enjoying life. Maybe it is because I used that purple toilet paper. Do they still make it in that color???

Then there’s the normal boring white with its different ply’s now this is toilet paper!

Whether or not it can hold up to the purple stuff I’m not too sure. And the white stuff does not make the water a neat color. So that makes it sort of boring. But it’s probably better for your backside.

So just remember next time you want to go out don’t forget your trusty roll of toilet paper that can provide you with the feeling of security that you need when you “must go”.

Party line ©sueromeiser

In our modern world times have changed and we communicate a bit differently then in the past. Now a days we have group chats, video calls and telco’s and other ways to join us together as a group. Now in our time where we are a bit disconnected from family and friends, we use these modern ways of communication.

But when I look back at my childhood those times were not like that….. We had the good’ol “party line” where we were connected together by a single telephone number..OMG!!!!

One telephone number and 4 other people using the line together. Not a bad thing if you are all friends, but if you aren’t, well,well,well is all I can say. Then there was always the person who liked to eaves drop on the other while they were having their afternoon party line coffee time. That was a highlight for my mom!

There she was with her mug of coffee and all the other women who were her friends picked up the receiver at the same time and began to gossip about whatever. As a kid I never understood it, but now looking at the modern ways of communication nothing has changed; just the way it is done, and there was no camera back then either. Though one fun highlight for me was answering the phone and not listening to the number of rings and the call was for someone else and they made it really clear to me that I should not have answered the phone….. Party poopers!!!

Though I can add that the party line fun ended after a couple of years when the telephone company decided to change its system and everyone got their own telephone number and every telephone call costed a lot of money, so as I look back at it, it must have put a damper on my moms afternoon coffee with the gals

Enjoy a coffee with friends online in these times where we are social distancing from friends and family.

Brighten your day with a bit of “Techi Talk”

Hi friends out there who need a bit of a laugh for today! I hope this brings a smile to you face from a repost of mine.

“Techi Talk” Posted on August 10, 2017 by sueromeiser©

Today with all these new techi computer words floating around I wonder what else they could mean besides there computer meaning and as a gal who isn’t always up to date in the world of computers and only recently being exposed to wonders of modern technology, I must say I was fascinated as to how I could translate those words into totally everyday means………

So, I thought I would give it a go and maybe you can relate to some of the translations too……..

API – always people interfere (You know the problem when you are trying to do something.)

Boot – sorry I only have one and lost the other boot. Bad if the weather isn’t so good outside.

Cloud- look up into the sky and see the wonders of nature

Chrome- Normally used as a plating for metal, but what do I know……..

Dialer – wasn’t that the thing on the telephones from yesteryear??

FAT – Find any things? This is good when looking for something

Gnome – that thing that was popular one time that lots of people had in their gardens or on their lawns…..

Hardware – something you do need when doing repairs around the house, and then you need to go to the hardware store to get the stuff you need to fix-up whatever you are fixing-up……. Makes sense????

HTML – How that much liked??? There you got it when wanting an opinion; just ask HTML….
Key- Something I need to get into my house

Laptop – That word is ,well how can I say it…… Sounds dated for computer words

Malware – That can happen when you get moles in your garden and they ruin everything, then you got a serious case of Malware!

MSP- This is a word to watch-out for ( Many serious problems) because it does direct one in a some what negative direction, but not really saying anything about what the problem is, so MSP it next time you have some issues.

Open office – the good old open office plan that has been around for years with everyone working in the same room together….OMG….. no thank you!

Plug in – easy plug the plug in the socket…. it couldn’t be any simpler.

Pop up – that happens when you put bread in the toaster to be toasted and when it is done being toasted it pop’s-up

PDF – oh, an office nightmare….Photocopier Doesn’t Function

QNX – now here you need a bit of imagination: Quite Normal Expressions; when translated into computer lingo means nothing is new.

Root – every plant has this… nothing new

Server- those folks must have gotten this inspiring word while they were drinking a coffee at a coffee shop and a server served them.

USB – Again a fascinating word : Underlying useless business….. This does happen in the business world,so be careful not to waste your time.

Virus – bad news with winter coming in a couple of months there are always lots of these in the air,so take care.

Wine – Tastes good sometimes with meals and come in different colors too.

Zip – those are on many jackets and other garments worn.

Now after translating these wonderful words you now may be better able to understand the other meanings as to how we non computer professional can keep up with the world of words today.

Computer folks keep those great words coming… GWC for now!

Weather, people and moods

Have you ever noticed how the weather seems to influence people’s mood? Well I have and that’s not a scientific fact. At l east were I am people seem in a better mood when the weather gets warmer ( thank goodness, if you ask me… I know you didn’t, but that’s how it is.)

It seems to give them a whole other outlook on life and not complain so much except for when they travel on the underground and then the action starts. Truly an event in it self.

There you sit feeling like you are in a sauna and the beads of sweat rolling off everyone’s face. Not a pretty sight to behold.

Then someone gets the idea to open a window ( truly a crime indeed). Then the action starts.. the first one starts with “it’s drafty “ and shuts the window, next its open again someone says it’s too cold, even though they look like they could pass-out from a heat stroke… it is simply too cold!!!

Another person gets on the train and opens the same window…if looks could kill.. that is their death because now someone shouts at them for opening the window and wanting to let some fresh air in. It seems like fresh air is dangerous nowadays. ( I bet you didn’t know that? If not just travel on the public transport in my city, and then you will know.)

The whole time I just sit there and enjoy the show and wonder what will happen next???? Sometimes I would love to ask the people “ what do you have against fresh air?” Maybe it’s better not to know the answer. I haven’t decided yet.

Though the other day I said something “ this is better than TV” to the person sitting next to me. They did not appreciate my humor, and asked me if I was okay… I thought to myself “ you idiot” , but instead just smiled at them which annoyed them more then the person opening the window. I knew that was borderline, so kept to myself the rest of the trip.

Another person sitting across from me started to complain about it being too warm in the wagon, but wouldn’t open the window because they were worried that there could be a retaliation from some passengers, so decide against the idea. Because those around him said “opening the window would cause cooler air to come into the wagon and could cause injuries”…. Don’t ask me the logic behind that, but it was definitely an original sentence.

Somehow, this opening and closing the window and of course complaining has become a national pastime on the local transport in my area. Which means when out and about make sure you have your own air conditioning system with you so as not to upset those near you and cause an argument.

Enjoy going on public transport!

Who is Vacuuming Here???

Now I know this is not exactly an exciting topic for Sunday’s but I just had to tell you about what happened this afternoon……I was meeting up with some people I know and we got onto the topic of vacuum cleaners…. really exciting right??? Okay maybe not so, but anyway….

One of the guys there said he really enjoyed vacuuming and seemed like some sort of expert in this area, which I never thought to be true because don’t guys usually hate doing house work??? or am I wrong….. I personally think he was like being paid by some vacuum cleaner company otherwise, how do guys know soooooo much about vacuum cleaners….

Okay the truth was that he was recently out shopping for one and divulged his inner secrets to us….Isn’t that exciting…. I bet you are just sitting on the edge of your seat thinking WOW… I want to rush out right now and buy a new vacuum cleaner too, but please wait a minute before you do. Thanks

Yes, there are models for guys and the sort for other users and they come in all shapes and sizes too….. My brain is just exploding here with all these thoughts about if I had to purchase a new vacuum cleaner and which model to choose from tooooo…. Too many choices for my liking, but then again I don’t need a new vacuum cleaner.

But I could imagine how it could be in a store selling vacuum cleaners… there you go bee-lining towards the vacuum cleaner section of the store, everyone is still calm and easy going, but then the OMG moment comes right there before your eyes are the rows of vacuum cleaners in all shapes sizes and colors, and I have to make a decisive decision as to which model I should buy…..

Which color matches my rug ( very important fact… I would not want to own a vacuum cleaner that did not color coordinate with the color of my carpeting.) And then with or without those dust bag things that holds all the nasty dust and other stuff that the vacuum sucks-up……Okay, with the bag-less model, I can see if I maybe vacuumed up some money or something valuable and fish it out of the dust , or I go towards the mysterious bag model where I have no idea what I vacuumed up…..

Now these subjects could bring about intense conversations between people( this was reveled in our conversation… how exciting..) who do not know about which sort is best for them and the attachments that leave you wondering what they are all for or maybe you do not even need them….. That is a personal choice……

Though I must say I would make sure there is the attachment that lets you remove dust and crumbs from the sofa, because you never know how much money is hiding under the seat cushions on your sofa, and just imagine there you are enjoying a round of vacuuming( sorry, not my favorite job around the house, so do not call me!) and lift-up the sofa cushions to find some cash…. Finders keepers, just like when emptying the pockets before doing the laundry( an important rule not to forget and you can share this idea with your friends too.)

Even with that you have to worry about sooo many other things too, like the length of the cord ( who cares!) But no there you have it… As reported:
„ Honey how long is the cord on model XYQ?“
„ Oh, it is only 5 feet long…….. My golly are you even listening to me?“
„ What did you say? I love this color and it is just what I was looking for.“
„ You just asked my how long the cord was.“
„ Oh, stop being such a nag and worry about such things!“

And the conversation went on for what seemed like eternity, but after a little hug they both love each other again and the decision was made and they bought model 22wd for only $300.00 in hot pink so that it matches the color of a bottle of nail polish…..And so the happy couple went home with their new vacuum cleaner and lived happily ever after.. Okay I can only report what I know, so the other facts you have to find out yourself and ask, but I am sure you too may have experienced such moving events in your lives,plus what could be of more interest on a Sunday afternoon as to how someone bought a new vacuum cleaner?
And I bet you too have talked about some cool things to today?

What’s new in the office or not????

Just the other day I was talking to a friend of mine who attended a seminar about organizing your priorities in the office better and managing yourself…… “WOW”… I thought and thought I probably had missed something really new and innovative, because that is the utmost importance to be innovative and full of new ideas and systems to create the modern working office… or so is said.

Well, as you can imagine, my friend started to tell me all about these exciting new ideas, and I was mesmerized by the ideas, especially the one on using those sticky bright reminder stickers.. you know those sticker things that come in various colors, sizes and shapes that you can stick just about everywhere….

Those sticky little things are supposed to be the newest craze for organizing my projects and other things in my day or week….. Just hearing that I almost fell off my chair, because I have been using those sticky things for years, but apparently this is new and I didn’t know it!!!

Though the conversation about those sticky little things did get me curious about how are they used nowadays…. Answer…. The same as years ago… I was somewhat disappointed to hear that. Though I asked my friend did they discuss and analyses what do you do when the sticky back bit isn’t sticky anymore…. As you can image they left that bit out and seems to me if I was there at the seminar; I would have been highly disappointed not to learn what to do if those things lose their stickiness.

Just image there you are in your office organizing the next few days on a project and want to move around those sticky things and then all of a sudden a couple of them have fallen on the floor because the adhesive on the back is worn-out… is my project ruined or can I take a few new one’s of those things??? I mean really there at my feet are the most import colors of my project and the only ones left sticking are the other ones that aren’t really significant…. OMG!!!

Plus, will anyone on my team notice that I replaced the old sticky ones with new one’s…. This could put the project on hold until we have a meeting to decide: what is the next step to take with those sticky things, and as you all know…Time is money at work!

And to be honest… I really need to look into this because I have a project on the go and there are those sticky things stuck on the paper so that you notice certain things… Firstly, tomorrow morning I will have a meeting and discuss this all important issue and maybe we will need a few more of those sticky things to point out the important fact that those sticky things are still important and still modern….

Enjoy your days at the office and remember those sticky little things are in again!

Puff and Play

A little play on words (smoking, playing a game on a Smartphone, and drinking coffee)
The other day at work some guys I don’t know too well started to talk about what they do on their coffee break, and as a typical women who loves to hear about what others do….. I knew I had to listen in….I’m sure some of you do that too or not???

To me it was rather amazing to listen to how they took their coffee breaks… sure there are those who just stand around and sip their coffee and hope to get the low-down on what is going on in the office without actually partaking in any conversation; there are those who take their coffee back to their desks and dream about destinations outside of the office, and the sort who know everything going on in the office (if they actually do…. That could be questionable???)

Nowadays there is a new sort of coffee breakers who say the heck with conversation and absorb themselves in the world of coffee, having a smoke and their games on their Smartphone’s….. That’s today’s world whether you like it or not…. Welcome in the 21st century!!

But what is important here is just to image how they manage to “puff and play” and drink coffee all at the same time…. Being a woman with an imagination I can picture it now as to how they multi-task on their coffee break…..
All you have to do is sit-back and shut your eyes to image how it would be (Firstly, though read below and then shut your eyes to get the full picture..)

Now to do this properly one has to get a hold of the coffee break, Smartphone, ashtray set-up, otherwise forget it! This set- up is for everyone and not restricted only to guys…. Before heading to the break area one must strap around their waist the handy coffee break belt with the built in, pull-out tray, ashtray and Smartphone holder, so leaving your hands free for other important things , should they arise.

You need a coffee mug that is not too heavy, otherwise the tray could get too heavy and tip over and you spill coffee on yourself…. A definite no go in today’s office world! And don’t forget to keep your ashtray clean too.. No old butts!!

Okay! Coffee break time has started and everyone is getting their coffee break waist tray out and securing it in place, Smartphone’s are on the tray charged up for the next round of action that has been burning your fingers, because you had to work before… coffee is in the cup and ciggi in the mouth…. Sort of like those old black and white movies….. Anticipation is mounting, the Smartphone is blinking and you are so excited that you are winning the game you are playing, you are lost in another world no longer at work, but sunk deep within the realms of the game, coffee forgotten ashes falling from your ciggi into the coffee that is on your waist tray…. No one notices… you take a sip of your coffee and think to yourself “who made this S…..?” But who cares the screen is blinking things are happening the Smartphone has taken hold of your senses and you forget the world around you because you want power and fame that the game gives you, and not the desk job that you are doing!

Through all this action and excitement your ciggi has burnt down to the filter and you stand there with just the filter in your mouth, and your Smartphone in your hand and you wanting to drink that beloved cup of coffee, but NO…… the coffee break time is over and now you have to go back to your desk and wonder and wait until the next break comes where you can dive again into the world of adventure, and ciggi’s and coffee…

The boss comes along and says „Coffee break over…. Everyone back to work now!”

That’s life in the office…..

Advice Headlines

I got to looking at advice headlines online for a bit of a change in my reading style…. Not that I am looking for advice but I wanted to read about what concerns other people.

There was the guy in love with someone he works with….. To me that seems like trouble and if everyone in the office knows about it… I think this problem answers itself… It could be that he is like a little boy in love…Staring out the window dreaming of the tender moments that he could share with that person or he is texting that person with poems and dreams of their love that will never be…. My advice to the guy: get focused and sort yourself out! Get a foot back on the ground and forget it; I would not want to lose my job because of some silliness.

Taking a short nap at work… Now that is a great idea! Arrange to have a nap every afternoon from say 1:00pm to 4:00pm and then once rested up you can go home at 5:00pm. Life couldn’t be better….. Please where can I apply for that job and does it pay well?

Now this is an all time great: My garden …. And how that fits with the other two I am not sure and can only presume that it is something like this: Guy is at work having a nap and dreaming about the person he is in love with at work. There you have it. A lovely flower garden idyllic, birds singing and lovely trees the feeling of tranquility is in the air they are there in each other’s arms; when suddenly the boss comes in and screams “ What the h…. are you doing, sleeping on my time?” . Bad idea napping at work!

Another daunting thought: someone thinks everyone is against them… Okay, that’s bad, but it can’t be true. I know everyone doesn’t like me and to be honest it doesn’t bother me either. I would say…Stop worrying and get on with things, before you miss out on all the great things that are happening in life!

A real one: Problems in the bedroom….. OMG!!! I don’t think a news paper can help that couple or the guy dreaming at work (I am not too sure who they were writing about). They need to seek professional help or talk to each other like folks did one time… that could help too. Let’s see what happens and find out who it is????

The normal one some famous person…. Bla,bla,bla boring… I want action like the topics above!!!

But once I read all those tidbits of advice I didn’t and don’t feel any the wiser and I wonder do the people who wrote in feel any better about the response that they received and did the guy in love at work solve his problem and did he get in trouble for taking a nap????
These are unanswered questions and I feel like I am left hanging here… I want to know how the guy’s life is going and was it him with the bedroom problems…. Please people answer my questions, so that I know advice can be real and have real results!

Take my advice and read all the wonderful bits of advice, but be careful, they may not give you the answer you were looking for!
