Yesterday I called the stupid insurance company about my poor smashed up car and I still don't know what I am going to do about it. I was trying to avoid making a claim so my premium doesn't go up, but since we both have Geico, they already know about it and automatically opened a claim on my policy. How is that fair? My deductible is $1000, so if the damages were equal or less than that I wasn't going to open a claim. WTF. I need to talk to Jackie again. Stupid stupid accidents. Grr. And why would that idiot lady call and make a claim when there was no damage to her car at all? Does she want her premium to go up? Duh!
I came across some more articles today that were interesting. First, more about pirates!!! Here is an article about them partying on their hijacked ship! I guess it's fun being a pirate. Secondly, for the science nerds out there, this article talks about how the Phoenix lander detected falling snow on Mars. And finally, check out this website Totally Looks Like. It's hilarious and amazing how much these people totally look like the people they put next to them.
Tonight should be super fun because I have to do two presentations in my class. Wish me luck! My lack of interest or caring about school right now amazes me.

Okay, good news now. Look at what Jessie bought for me!!!!!! A Cute Overload desk calendar!! OMG I was so excited when she gave it to me. You know how obsessed I am with Cute Overload. Yay!! Buy your own at this link.
Well other than that not much to say - but look at this article on CNN. More about pirates! Does anyone else just find it hilarious that there are still pirates out there? I wonder if they wear eye patches and have a skull and crossbones flag?

Dudes, check out this article. This guy made his own jet propelled wing and crossed the English Channel. Crazy! :) I'd be scared.
Well, not much exciting to talk about today. I have a lot going on this weekend. My main task is going to be to get my project done for school. We have to do two presentations next week. So annoying. We are the first group to go. Even though it sucks, I am actually glad we are going first because generally the first group gets graded the easiest. Also, it means we will already have it out of the way and can focus on the other stuff we have to do for the class, which includes writing a business plan. I decided that I am going to write it to figure out if I can start a small business selling the bachelorette sashes that I have made for all of my girls. It seems that everyone really likes them, and I enjoy making them, so I may as well see if I can make some money off of it! Of course I would still make them for all of my girlfriends for free though. :)
Alright this post is super boring so - Have a good weekend! :)

He also ripped a hole in my shirt, but I didn't care because the shirt already had a hole in it and I didn't really like it all that much anyway.
Oh man I cannot think right now. I gotta go. LOL.

Anyway, did you hear that Clay Aiken is finally telling us what we already know!? Here is the article. Thanks for clearing that up! :) And also, this video just really, really made me laugh at how ridiculous people are. This woman claims she was held hostage by a pig. Wtf?!
Not much else to talk about today. Same ol' work stuff then taking Zach to the vet and then - oooh - going to happy hour at Rock Bottom!!!! Woot! I haven't been there in forever and ever and ever. I used to go almost every week with all my work peeps. So it should be fun. Yay! :)
Tuesday, September 23, 2008
I am super excited because last night I bought a ticket to go to Las Vegas to visit Robbie and Lindsay for Halloween! I am so excited. I'm sure it is going to be crazy fun like always. :) Let the countdown begin!! :)
Well, today is Tuesday which means I have the longest day ever of being at work and then going to class. I am praying that he lets us out early so I can have time to work out afterwards. Because tomorrow I will not have time, and I am only allowed one day off a week. I organized a happy hour tomorrow, and I have to take Zach to the vet. It should be a super fun experience because he acts like he is being killed every single time I put him in his carrier. I swear, he is such a princess. How did I get such a princess for a cat? And he's a boy too so he has no excuse.

Well maybe talking about the weekend will cheer me up - because it was the bomb. Friday night Jade, Jessi and I checked out a new restaurant in Arlington, Restaurant 3. It was really, really yummy. We all really loved our food. Saturday I spent the entire day hanging out with Robyn and Mark, which was totally awesome and I love them!! We had such a good time. We went to an awesome tailgate, then to the game, and then to the bar. We saw a Nirvana cover band (called Nevermind), and a Pearl Jam cover band that also played some Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog. Omg they were all SO good! The guy who sang like Eddie Vedder was the best. It was creepy how much he sounded like him! The band is called The Ten Band. They are from PA so hopefully I will get to go see them again. The bar we were at was totally ridiculous because it was a college bar. It reminded me of how happy I am that I am no longer in undergrad. LOL. Everyone looked like they were twelve, were fall down drunk, and were barfing everywhere. It was really disgusting.
Yesterday I had a pretty relaxing day of napping and just hanging out. I went to Joe and Rachel's for dinner, which was super yummy. Then I went to hang out with Jessi for a bit. It was good to be with people because I always get really lonely on Sundays. Not sure why. :-/
Well now it's Monday and thank the Lord it is time to go to lunch, which means this awful day is half-way over.
Here are some pics!

Oh man it was FREEZING this morning. I am not ready for fall or winter. And can you believe that Halloween is only 42 days away?! And it's on a Friday this year so that should be the bomb. Last year Georgetown was CRAZY. Woot!
Tonight is going to be pretty low key since I have to get up early to go tailgate with Robyn and Mark in Maryland. I think Jessi and I are just going to go grab dinner. Not sure where yet. Then tomorrow tailgating and the game, and out to the bar at night. Sunday I am also looking forward to finally spending some time with my buddy Joe and his wife. So I have a pretty fun weekend planned. Plus I have tons of stuff to do around the house. And homework! OMG! Yuck!
Well, to try to make this post less boring, I found this article on CNN. It says that more than half of all Americans believe that they have been helped by a guardian angel at some point in their lives. I thought this was interesting. Do you think you have?
This video reminds me of something my dumbass cat would do. I can't figure out why they call it a miracle cat just cuz it got stuck in the toilet.
Super busy at work again today, which is really nice. I got lotsa stuff done. Yay!
Well not much exciting to talk about today. Getting ready to leave and go home to cook for my girls! Woot! :)
Wednesday, September 17, 2008
So today I am going to be working a long day getting some stuff done, then working out, and then going to the store to get some food for tomorrow night. I am cooking for Jade, Jessi, and Alice. I'm excited. I haven't made dinner for them in forever and ever since I have been traveling so much. I'm going to bake a chicken with stuffing, sautee some veggies, make cucumbers and sour cream (mom's recipe), and make my spinach artichoke dip for an appetizer. Woot!
Well unfortunately for me, I have been totally slacking on working out lately. Now that I have finally gotten back to running, and planned to start doing it regularly again, I have realized that I have a horrible case of shin splints. So, even though it is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS running weather, I have to go to the stupid gym and ride the stupid bike. I'm not happy about that but if I don't let them heal they will just get worse. And I won't even be able to enjoy my run anyway because I will be in pain. Boo. I wish I could get my own bike to ride outside but I have nowhere to store it and if I have to bring it into my apartment every day that means I have to carry it up 4 flights of stairs. That would be annoying. But I'm still considering it.
Well, this post is super boring but check out this article I saw on CNN: some middle-schooler ditched her baby in a garbage can. Great. But the point is, in reading the article I came across the mention of Infant Safe Haven Laws, which I didn't know about and thought was interesting.

Welp other than that not much new to report. I start class again tonight, which sorta makes me want to scream but I JUST WANT TO GET THIS SHIZNIT OVER WITH ALREADY! So that is my only consolation. 10 weeks from now I will be one class closer to being done. Thank the Lord.
Last night I made brownies for my co-workers because they took care of my Betta (Caesar) while I was on travel. And, this morning I forgot them on my kitchen counter. Nice. I was really proud of myself though because even though they smelled like heaven, I only ate 1/2 of one. I'm trying to be good!!
Alright well this post is boring.

Last weekend was so much fun omg. Thursday night I got to my sister's house late and spent the night. Friday morning she made me an AMAZING breakfeast of fruit crepes. It was the bomb. Friday night I went out dancing with all the girls to Malarkey's. Saturday I went to my sister's house with my fam to have dinner and then to Jackie's. Sunday was the baby shower and driving again! I got home pretty late last night. OMG Jackie's baby shower - she got so much stuff I just couldn't believe it. She could have 10 babies and still have enough stuff. It was crazy. I did go a little hog wild on her gift too and got her a lot of cute stuff. :) It was fun.
Well now I'm back and I can't say that I am very happy to be at work. Ho hum. You know how I feel about Mondays. They suck.
But check out this article about a dog calling 911! :)
Sorry this post is boring. :) Ooh but I do have some more pics that Tiff sent me! Only a few...

The good news is, I resigned my lease yesterday and I only signed it through May. So that means once may rolls around I am on my way west! So yeah, all you people who want to come to visit me better do it soon! :)
Well, even though I have probably a million things to talk about, I am going to just take the easy way out and post pics! :)

I'm outta here at around 1 to go get food and then head to the airport. I must say that I am glad I am not going to be in a hotel anymore. I am sick of hearing stupid people slam their doors every morning. Oh man I just realized that I didn't even get a chance to check out the pool or the hot tub! And I've been here 12 days! Well, I guess I did spend most of the time on the beach so who needs 'em.
I'm sad to leave California. :(
Oh man tomorrow I have to be at the bar at 9 a.m. to watch the Michigan game!!!!
Thursday, September 04, 2008
So, the weekend of August 8th I was home for Robyn and Mark's wedding (it was awesome), then I went back to DC for a few days, and then went out to California for work. On my way back I stopped in Vegas to see Robbie, Lindsay, Pat and CJ. While I was in Cali for work they asked me to come back again in another week, so of course I couldn't pass up free airfare to Vegas again! So I stopped in Vegas on my way back here, and now here I am. I've been in Los Angeles for the past two weeks and am leaving tomorrow to go back to Vegas for the weekend. Whew. That's a lot of time spent in the airport. THEN I am going home to Detroit for Jackie's baby shower! I still can't believe she is having a baby in October. It's so strange. I'm really excited. I can't wait to spoil her like crazy.
I must say that this past Labor Day weekend was the best one I have ever had in my life. Robbie drove in from Vegas and we spent the entire weekend relaxing on the beach, drinking, and eating great food. I can't even explain what an amazing time we had together. On Monday we were walking down the strand and we met some people having a house party that were from Michigan! They let us party with them and it was hilarious! Sunday we drove down to San Diego to hang out with Lindsay and her boyfriend, Pat. It was a blast. We went to the beach while they were deep sea fishing, and then we all went out to dinner at an awesome Mexican restaurant. After that we went to the bar next door and danced all night. Man, I love dancing. I could do it all night every day on the weekend and not get sick of it. I was really proud of Pat for coming out on the dance floor for a little bit too, because he isn't that much of a fan. It was so fun. I love them.
Well, tomorrow I am heading back to Vegas at 6 p.m. and it should be another fun-filled weekend. Friday night I think we are going out to celebrate Pat's birthday, then Saturday is the Michigan game (OMG I have to get up at 9 a.m. to watch it), Saturday night Pat is having people over to celebrate his birthday, and then Sunday we might go to Rehab again at Hard Rock (most fun pool party EVAAARRRRRR). I leave Sunday night on the red-eye to come back to DC. Oh man, I just love it out here so much. I love running by the beach every single day, and the gorgeous sunsets and agghhh everything! I love California so much. I will be happy to go back to DC for a while though and be in my own home with my own stuff. And I will finally get to hang out with my DC girls whom I feel like I haven't seen in ages. So even though I will be sad to leave here, I do have something to look forward to.
Okay so this is like the longest post ever.
