Summer means a lot of things. Hot weather, barbeques, outdoor concerts, and porta potties. Some people won’t use them . we all know that person. They’d rather blow their bladders and kidneys before they have to step into one . I don’t mind them really. I prefer the row style where you have 10 lined up. I like options. Especially when they’ve seen heavy traffic…you want the one with toilet paper INCLUDED. I’m not so big on the stand alone. You know the one that you’ll find at a big backyard barbeque or reunion, it’s on the corner of the lot. And when you have to go, everyone knows it. “Where’s Jim? Jeez..i dunno…ah..there he is! He’s walkin’ to the can….he must have to go to the bathroom! “ It’s weird. You really can’t disguise WHAT you’re doing in a porta potty . For girls especially, when you excuse yourself on a date to go to the bathroom, the other person doesn’t know EXACTLY what you’re doing. It could be a cosmetic thing. Just checking your face. But, porto potty. They know what’s going down. There’s no way around it. You’re going in there, you’re taking your pants down, you’re doing your business. There’s no mystery. It’s got one purpose. RELIEF. ( punch in ‘relief’)
You can’t lie and suggest to others around you that the reason you need to check out the porto is because you like small spaces. Or that you find that cell phone reception is at it’s best in the presence of raw sewage.
There. I told you how I feel about outdoor toilets. PS : CLICK HERE TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR MY COURTDATE to fight a $292.00 ticket!!! https://www.facebook.com/#!/FreeKerri?notif_t=page_new_likes

Hey there everyone! Ok, so I have ventured into print. This is just an FYI to let you know that starting this Thursday I will have a weekly piece in the METRO paper. (the one in the green boxes) It’s called Above Average Joe. Each week, I am going to be highlighting Winnipegger’s who are not famous at all…but they are the REAL people who make our city tick. Maybe they have been a Carnie at the EX for 35 years, or they are the most LOVED janitor at a highschool here in town. I want to give the REAL people of our city the spotlight for once! Afterall, just because you’re not famous, doesn’t mean you’re a nobody! Everyone is a somebody. SO, that’s what it’s about!
If you pick up the METRO, take a peek at Above Average Joe!
love you all. Punch in aboveaveragejoe for some points!

They’re always around. When you get to work, when you meet in the lunch room, at the water cooler, at the coffee machine, at meetings, even at some parties. CO-WORKERS. And most of the time, we enjoy them. They can be fun to talk to! And fun to work with! However, sometimes we run into the co-worker that isn’t a bag of roses.
I came across this in a book. It says that there are four different types of work place people which all fall under the category of DIFFICULT. (by the way, that’s your bonus code, difficult) So here they are, and here’s how you can deal with them!
THE BULLY: Bullies like to bowl you over and leave your stomach in knots. They like to get their way…sometimes, they even do it under the radar!
HOW TO DEAL? Stand up to a bully. Usually aggressive people expect others to run away. Don’t bully them back…but use an ‘I’ statement. Like, ‘When you insult my intelligence, I feel…..’
THE CLAM: They are afraid of any type of confrontation, so they say nothing, leaving everything unresolved…leaving everybody frustrated!
HOW TO DEAL? Don’t wait to you blow up because of their passive aggressive behaviour. Instead, hit the situation calmly and suggest a solution or consequence. Maybe even go so far as to ask them if they need any help.
THE WHINER: These people tend to deflect responsibility! They’ve learned that by complaining or making excuses, they can put the problem on you or someone else.
HOW TO DEAL? Most of the time, these people are oblivious to their negativity. The best thing to do is say, ” When you complain like that, it DRAINS me” Then suggest they focus on the good first..and not always the negative stuff. i know, I know, easier said than done, but it’s worth a try.
THE SNIPER: These peeps like to sneak attack, hoping you won’t notice or at least not say anything.
HOW TO DEAL?
Ahhh….reveal the sniper’s agenda! let them know that YOU know what they’re up to. Such as, ” I saw you rolling your eyes at the meeting, why don’t you tell me what you didn’t like about….”
Again, easier said than done, right?
As a student of psychology, I am totally obsessed with personality traits! So, if this is interesting to you at ALL..then that’s good. If it has helped in any way….even better!
Have a great day at work!

I am so excited!! The CROP TOP is back! I absolutely adore this fashion statement! Especially now that I’m almost 40, I feel more confident than ever. I love baring my mid-drift in all it’s glory. Especially now that it’s lost all of it’s elasticity from my beautiful daughter being inside me all of those months! Stretching, kicking and pulling. And, who doesn’t love doing crunches? I can’t STOP doing them! Side bends, sit-ups, they’re all so FUN! I never sit anymore either. Standing really makes a crop top SHINE! Who wants to see a mid-drift all bent over and squished! And the BEST part about a crop top, they can take you from the office to the evening! They are so versatile! One minute you’re at your computer freezing your butt off, the next, you’re out clubbing after work! You can even where them to the gym. In fact, I thing they were invented at the gym. The crop top, so much fun, so little fabric.

love you all!!! kerr
