In Passing

On my way home from work this afternoon I stopped at a red light behind a Jetta with a license plate that read "ADIDAS"

Now, I know it could be the car of a major brand whore, or a company/team/whatever car. That is to say that it could easily be referring to the shoe/clothing brand.

I like to think it's actually a reference to the Korn song. Sing it with me:

"All day I dream about sex..."

Goings On

I'm serving at work now. Tips are fun. I'm making a very decent amount of money, but I still need to get a real job. By real I mean full time.

This weekend I'm going to the Outdoor Retailer Show. I'm quite excited. It's going to thrilling.

I've been craving chocolate cake for 2 weeks now. Haven't had any.

That last one was very important, eh?

Grammartastic!

One of the secretaries at my boyfriend's work sent the following to everyone who works there:

Hi,

Well i just want to send an email out to ask everyone if they could just let me know when it is that they get in to work to let me know that you are in because some times i dont see eveyone come in and then i call your phones and it rings or your on the other line or just away from desk but this will just help me do my job better. If you could just send me an email when ever your going to a meeting or a meeting here and what time you will be back or what time you will be out of the meeting, becuase when people call and ask for someone im searching and rarley now who is where so jsut those couple of things will help me out a great deal so that i dont look so stupid to phone calls that come threw. So if you all could just send me and email when you get in and just when your going to go to a metting or what not so that I dont feel so out of it up here thanks so much!!!



I admit that I am a little more anal about grammar than some people (understatement), but COME ON!!! Just reading it made my head hurt. I can look past the spelling errors (except maybe "threw" because that changes the meaning of the sentence), but.... excuse me while I hyperventilate trying to figure out what the worst part of this is.

Once you figure out what she's saying, it's really not a bad idea. Give her credit for trying to make her job more efficient.

Seriously though, it hurts me.

I Wanna Rock (Rock)!

.... Sad isn't it. I ruined a perfectly good Twisted Sister reference with a bad pun. Sorry.

Celebrate Good Times

A new year has begun. And yes, I realize I'm a little behind. It's technically the third of January right now, but I haven't gone to bed yet so it's still the second.

To ring in the new year I threw a masquerade party with my friend Arrakis at my boyfriend's house. I was a little disappointed with how it turned out, but everyone there had fun so I guess it was a smashing success.

The problem I had with it was maybe a little petty. The plan was for it to be a smaller party with only people we liked there. Boyfriend's sister was allowed to have a few of her friends because, well, she lives there too. The problem was that her friends kind of took over the whole thing. And her close friends are lovely (if a little dumb when intoxicated) but in large quantities her friends and her friends' friends are obnoxious ass holes.

I guess I should have not been so anal about how things went. Overall, it was a good party and everyone had a lot of fun. The year started out well and I was with people I really am quite fond of. Best of all, I was with Boyfriend.... one of these days I might name him in this little bloggy thing.

January first was spent sleeping in, finding an open restaurant (for lunch with friends) and cleaning.

Happy 2007 everyone!

This year I think I'm going to grow up. Today I sold my soul to American Express so I can start paying off my credit cards. That may seem a little counter intuitive at first but you must understand that I actually transferred all my balances and got a card with 0% APR for the next year. In theory, that's plenty of time to pay everything off. Next on my list is to find a full time job so I am making enough money to buy my soul back.

But for now, I'm going to sleep. It's early but I'm tired. The last several weeks have been way to crazy. I'm looking forward to relaxing a little.
