Last Day of Work for the Week

I love vacations. I only have to stay until 12:50 and then I am going to make like a tree and leave. I cannot wait to get out of here!!!!! It was really overcast and gross outside on my way into work this morning. Yuck. All the more reason to go on vacation. :o) The only problem is having to come back, mainly having to come back to work. Ugh. Not going to think about it right now.

On another note, I just read that Hugh Grant was arrested for attacking someone with beans. Yep, you read it right: beans. Not always my weapon of choice, but are we ever suprised by anything that celebrities do these days? Nope. I guess he lobbed a tub of baked beans at a photographer. Ha ha. I think I'll do that the next time someone pisses me off. Ha ha.

Virginia Beach Pictures

Cool Slideshows

I KNOW you know what I'm talkin' 'bout

I figured out what is causing my writer's block: crankiness. I am in one of those moods...everything is annoying me. I don't feel like doing anything and I don't feel like doing nothing. I hate that. Hate.

Last night was a bonus though, we got out of class 1.5 hours early! I was so happy! Then of course I started thinking about all the crap I have to do and what was the most important thing on my to-do list. I decided to clean and do laundry. My apartment was a wreck because I let the maid have the weekend off last weekend, she was in Virginia Beach. Ha ha. For some reason a clean house makes me feel better.

I almost murdered my cat last night because after I got in bed and had already been asleep for like two hours, he started meowing outside my door and woke me up. Okay, he sounds pitiful but he has seriously destroyed so many of my clothes that I have NO SYMPATHY whatsoever! Last night I was seriously contemplating whether I should give him back to my mother because he is making me nuts! I think it is because I have been gone a lot lately and he is bored. But he has been acting like a damn fool and getting into everything (everything!). I feel like I cannot leave anything out or it will be chewed when I get home. Like, hello, do I have a DOG? No, I have a CAT, so why does he chew things like a dog does?!? WHY!?

I read today that European astronomers have discovered a possibly Earth-like planet outside our solar system. Click here to read the article. No decision yet on whether or not it would have an atmosphere/environment to sustain (or have had once sustained) life. I'll keep you posted, since I know you are very intersted to know if there are aliens out there. Why didn't I decide to be an astronomer?

And I thought my job was hard...

I read an article on today about a woman that got sat on and smothered by a camel that lived in her petting farm. Whoa. What a way to go. That is sad, and I mean, kind of funny in a morbid way. Okay, I know I am going to hell. But getting smothered by a camel sitting on your head?!?!

I have not had anything exciting to talk about all week this week. Must be writers block.

I started my next class and, thank the LORD, it seems like it is going to be a lot less annoying than the last one I took. I was tearing my hair out last semester.

Well, as I said, nothing exciting to talk about...

I Hate Mondays

I hate Mondays. I really do.

Let's see...what to say, what to say. I went to Virginia Beach over the weekend and it was SO fun! Joe and I went to a wedding. We stayed with Fitzalan and Justin in the hotel and we had such a blast with them. I am so glad that Joe's friends have normal girlfriends & fiance's that I like to hang out with. Ha ha. The beach was really fun, but let me tell you that Virginia Beach is pretty ghetto fabulous. The one thing that sucked was that Alan and I tried to find a nail salon and by the time we came across one it was too late to get our nails done. Boo. Oh well. We ended up getting ready in record time because by the time we got back to the hotel room...well let's just say it was like a hurricane going through there. The wedding was a lot of fun though and really pretty. I can't wait until Fitzalan and Justin's wedding because I know we are going to have tons of fun. Well except for the fact that we won't get to hang out with them much since they will be busy mingling with all of their guests!

Anyway, this week is going to be SHORT thank the Lord. I am working M-W and a half day on Th and then I leave to go to Miami in the evening. I am so excited.

I have lots of pictures from last weekend, I'll post them asap. Promise! :o)

Why do I do this to myself on Fridays?

I heard on T.V. last night that on April 18th, the law banning partial birth abortions was upheld in the supreme court. In 2003, the act was signed into law. The correct medical term for the procedure is "intact dilation and extraction." Read about it here if you want to know the gory details. Well, I'm not going to get into the whole pro-life vs. pro-choice debate, but I guess after reading this description on Wikipedia, I think banning late-term abortions like this one seems reasonable. And that's all I have to say about that. What do you think?

Eh. Might as well keep with the depressing topics. I'm sure you've already heard, but today was declared a national day of mourning for the shooting victims from Virginia Tech. I'm wearing my maroon and orange, fo sho. I just still can't believe it happened.

Ok, happy topic. This afternoon Joe, Alan, and I are leaving to go to Virginia Beach for a wedding! I am so excited! I can't wait to wear my new bikini from Vikki's Panty Palace! Yay! I checked out the weather and it is supposed to be sunny and in the 70s tomorrow. So hopefully we will be able to get in some beach time! :) If not, I can always wait until next weekend, when I'll be in MIAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It Makes Me Laugh

I don't know where my crazy dreams come from, but a couple nights ago I dreamed that I got lost in Detroit and then got into a fist fight with John Travolta. Ha ha. Every time I think about it, I laugh.

Oh, and the fist fight? I won. Ha ha.

Cute Website

Well, I have to thank Jessie for showing me this website last Saturday after we got home from the bar. :0) It is so cute!! It is guaranteed to make you smile or laugh. If you don't, you are made of stone. End of story.

I figured with all that has been happening this week, people could use a good laugh or smile. I can't really go into my feelings about this whole shooting at Virginia Tech. It is just to crazy, insane...I just can't even begin to sort it all out. How could someone do something like that? All of my friends that went to Virginia Tech are totally devastated. And being that I have gone there many, many times with Joe for football games since we have been dating, I have shared some of the feeling. I guess you would just have to go there to understand why everyone is so suprised. I have never been to a campus where people are so happy in general, and have so much school spirit. It is just a totally different atmosphere.

Fun Quiz

Double Standards Abound

Why is it that just beacause I am a woman, I am expected to be cheerful, bubbly and overly enthusiastic about my job or I am judged as being uninterested? Why is it that just because I am a female, if I act overly happy or bubbly, people would just think I am an idiot and not take me seriously? Why is it that just because I am a female I am expected to be miss-pretty-nice-nice all the time? Why is it that when females in the workplace take a stand and push issues, they are judged as being bitchy and overly aggressive?

If a man were sitting in a meeting with a straight face, would another man ask why he didn't look happy, interested, or cheerful? Would another man ask why he wasn't smiling?

If a man were asserting his ideas in a meeting, and taking a stand for what he thought was right, would another man later on question whether he was just having an "emotional day"?

I don't think so.

I'm Boring Today

I don't have anything exciting to talk about today. Last night Joe and I went to dinner at our friends' house. It was really good. We had fajitias. Yum. Two of Joe's friends' fiances and I came up with the idea. Did that sentence make sense? Ha ha. Well it was me and Joe, Zach and Ana, and Alan and Justin. We have started a dinner club and are going to alternate hosting dinner at each of our houses. Good times. I have no idea what I am going to make when it is my turn. So hopefully I will think of something good and not screw it up. Ha ha. Maybe I will just make sure there is a lot of booze. Ha ha.

Today is going to be a long day. I am going to try to stay at work as long as possible. It kills me though. And I have been trying to get my stupid laundry done, which I despise, but I have been working such long hours that it has proven difficult. Plus I refuse to let it get in the way of my social life. I hate laundry with the fire of a thousand suns.

Okay, I'm going to end this post before it gets any more boring.

Eat In Chicken

Last night I cooked something new: Cornish hens. They were delicious! I was very proud of myself. Everytime I see them they remind me of the chick on Girl, Interrupted that would only eat her father's rotisserie chickens and then put the leftovers in foil and leave them under her bed. Pretty weird. If you haven't seen that movie, it is really good. It has Angelina Jolie in it, before she got super crazy famous. Here is a link to the IMDB entry for the movie. She plays a crazy person really well. Go figure.

So, I ordered a poster last week from Amazon and it cost me more to ship it than to actually buy it. I thought that was ironic. But I wasn't sure where else I would be able to find it, so that was that. This is what it looks like:

Look familiar? I'm going to hang it in my cube at work, cuz I'm cool like that. I'm tired of looking at boring gray walls. And then maybe I can pretend that I have a cool job with the FBI chasing unsolvable cases. It could happen.

I am the crabbiest person that has ever lived on Monday mornings. I swear, I did not want to get out of bed today. I kept resetting my alarm for later. I wasn't even that tired, I just didn't feel like getting up to face the world. Grr.

You know what is really really annoying? It was 31 degrees this morning. Yesterday we tied for a record low. Why does God feel the need to torture me like this? Why? Why? Why? It should be in the 60s right now. Thank God it is supposed to warm up by the end of the week. I am sooooo at the point that I really just don't even want to leave my apartment because I am sick of being cold, sick of wearing 10 layers, and sick of wearing freaking 25 pound winter jackets. Grr. What's up now Punxatawny Phil? Your predictions aren't so great these days!

On another note, I saw two movies this past weekend and finished a book. Joe and I went to see 300 on Friday night. It was exactly as I expected-enough blood and guts for about 10 movies. Besides that, it was pretty good I suppose. I probably wouldn't watch it again though. I did hide my face for about 50% of the movie. Last night we watched Employee of the Month. It was actually pretty funny. Initially I had my doubts. But Joe and I did both laugh out loud at several points throughout the movie. Towards the end I was like, okay I get subject? It just kind of dragged. But other than that it was pretty funny, for stupid humor. The book I finished reading was Second Glance by Jodi Picoult. A really good book, but it was about ghosts and stuff so I slept with my light on pretty much every night that I ended up reading it before bed. Ha ha.

Busy Week

Wow I never really understood jet lag until this week. I have been dragging ass all week. I am so tired in the morning I want to die. Hopefully this weekend I will catch up and get back on a normal schedule. Now I know what Lindsay was talking about when she goes home to Michigan. I feel weird. On top of that, I have had a super hectic week at work. It is good, in a way, because it makes the work day go by faster. But as I have said before, I am not good at multi-tasking, so I get a little frazzled at times like this. I guess that is what happens when you are gone for a week. Stuff piles up.

I can't believe this Sunday is already Easter. I can't believe it is already April. That is nuts. It seems like just yesterday we were welcoming in the new year. I am not coming home in April anymore. Joe and I got our signals crossed and we actually have to go to another wedding that weekend that I was originally planning to come home. I'm sad but I guess I can just come home sometime in may. Because the last weekend in April I am going to MIAMI!! Wahoooo! I am so excited, I can't wait. I have a feeling that this time is going to be totally crazy. That is if the dumb bitches I am going with don't get sick again. I am going to have to bug them to take a lot of vitamins the week before or something. Ha ha.

Well, needless to say I had SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun in California with Dorothy and Lindsay. We had an awesome time. And I didn't realize that I could still consume that much alcohol without dying. It's all about conditioning. See pics below!
