Franco Sarto - Quite possibly the most comfortable, yet stylish work shoes and boots I own.

Shameless male affection

So...driving on I-90, going to work. When I do my hair in the morning I always tuck it inadvertantly behind my ears, but during my drive I pull it back in front so it lays flat. So I had just come out of the I-90 tunnel before I hit the bridge and I was untucking it and kind of straightening my hair with my hands. I look over and here is this guy in a great red Porche and he smiled, mouthed 'looks good' and gave me a thumbs up. Ahhh...the way some shamelss male affection can make your day. Especially when that guy is a driving a porche.

Oh and update for those of you tracking...'quarterly' called me last night. No lie...I nearly died of a heart attack. The pattern was so I have no idea whats going on!

Paper Monkey

My job is great... Sometimes it's hectic. Sometimes it's boring. Sometimes it's awesome. And sometimes I turn magically from the brilliant multi-tasker that I think I am, into a paper-pushing monkey. Today is one of those days.

We have an open house coming up which I have had to order invitations, hire caterers, hire musicians, hire entertainment, deal with building management issues, and just general chaos. I can understand why people hire wedding and party planners. Its fun, but my GOD does it take time.

Today I spent the bulk of my day stuffing invitations (I can't remember seeing that in my job description anywhere). I also got to run to the florist, run to the drug store and guess what...I get to take home more invitations to stuff tonight. Fabulous.

Dental Fun

So I went to the dentist today. Not an overall bad experience, but I picked this dentist because when I typed 'Seattle dentist spa' into google, up came the name of this dentist....Her office was awesome, staff were nice. I knew I had a couple of cavaties that I needed they sat me down...apparently she charges 450 per cavity for plastic fillings or 1650 for glass fillings....OH. MY. GOD!! Are you kidding me!!!!!!!

My old dentist in Seattle charged not per tooth, but how many surfaces on the tooth were affected, ranging from 150-290 per tooth....and then they would only make me pay the 20% up front because they kept track of how much insurance I had left knowing that they would pay 80%. Not this place...they wanted it, up front. lets see....if I had 3 fillings at 450, that 1350 up front for plastic, or 3 glass fillings for 4950. Thats half of what some new cars cost!!!!!

Needless to say...I'll be shopping for a new dentist.

Inch by Inch

So last night on my drive home Marisa called and we were having a conversation about guys and height. She said to me "Well he's kind of short...he's only 5 foot 9." Um HELLO! Sure, 5 foot 9 isn't tall, but when you're 5 foot 5, thats 4 inches taller than you are. As Heather said, it isn't fair because shorter girls have more options! It's true...lets do some math. Let say that there are 100 guys equally distributed between the height of 5 foot 5 and 6 f00t 2. And lets just see if you only dated someone your height or taller, how many choices you would have (assuming all guys are straight and interested in you).

Marisa (5 foot 5) : 100 Guy Options
Elaine (5 foot 7): 80 Guy Options
Heather (5 foot 8): 70 Guy Options
Sunny (5 foot 9): 60 guy Options

Why oh WHY do we have to live in a city with so many short men????

Another Pro and Con List

It's been awhile, so here's another Pro and Con list...regarding paint:

-Can inexpensively change the look and feel of a room for the better.
-Is relatively easy to apply, and is easily changeable.
-What else for about 20.00 can an entire room in about 2 hours?

-Paint is a BITCH to clean out of dried carpet. (or at least I'm assuming it is because Bob Villa's website says so and because thats on the agenda for me tonight at my old apartment because I have to turn in the keys and if it doesn't come out because I was painting WAY too late one night and kicked over the paint bucket, I'm going to be really REALLY ticked off!) --and now I step off my soap box.

All I can say, is thank GOD that my new place is already painted a wonderful color and I dont have to worry about painting problems any more. Oh Elaine...I promise when we paint your bedroom this weekend, I wont get any on the carpet, and if I do...I'll know how to get it out!

Strange & Odd

Ok...this is an odd bit of news...but what can happen when you keep family and friends at a distance? This happens.

Moving Day!!!

I am moving tomorrow from gangsta-ghetto-trashy Federal Way, to the lovely, charming, gorgeous Queen Anne neighborhood and I can hardly wait! I cant wait to look around my new apartment and revel in the fact that I am merely 3 blocks away from: Starbucks, Tully's, Jamba Juice, Noahs, The Paragon, Safeway, Queen Anne Cafe, The Gelateria (OH. MY. GOD. Homemade Gelato 3 blocks away....thank goodness I'm moving when its turning cold and not in the height of summer!). I can't wait to walk around and get to know my new neighborhood.

I signed my lease last night and my landlord was all too happy to point out that there is a single guy living in the upstairs of the house and a single pharmacist living in the bright yellow house next door....hmmm. Heather says not to date those you: work with, live with or at the same I guess the RX next door is off limits.

Thank you in advance to those of you who are helping me move...moving sucks, but hopefully it will go smoothly and there will be no rain!

The Ex Factor

I have had 4 major long term relationships in my life, and I only keep in touch with one of them...and you all know who that is. He and I don't talk on the phone a lot because for whatever reason it doesn't get akward, but it gets hard, because even though we've been apart for 2 years now there are still some pretty strong feelings (at least on my side, and I'm pretty sure his). We have lived our lives seperately now with little contact except the occasional e-mail or visit when I go home.

We talked on the phone last night and had a real conversation, and it was nice. We joked around like old times and it was good to rememeber what that felt like. I know everyone says I shouldn't talk to him or see him, but I want to. I'd rather he be in my life in whatever capacity, than not in it.

He's the guy that used to come home after a gruling 14 hour day, wake me up, put his head on my stomach and we'd talk for an hour just to catch up and he'd make me 2am...and it was great. He used to buy me dumb presents like a talking Crocodile Hunter keychain because he knew I'd laugh at it. He gave me dumb nicknames, but I loved them. He'd play the best air bass and air guitar and had a love for music that was just awesome. We used to chase each other around the kitchen in our socks and pajama pants and those days with him were some of the very best times of my life.

100 - A Hundred - 100

This is my 100th post...sort of a mini-blogging milestone!! I have to say that blogging is a great outlet...its theraputic, and allows you to inform the general population on whatever you deem suitable to put on your blog. What did we do before blogs? Write in a journal? I'll tell you what, every year as a child I made a pact that I would keep a journal...because how incredibly COOL would that be to look back years later on how fun my life was....well to say that least I've probobly had 20 journal entried in my entire life, and usually only after something depressing such as a break up or what-not. Needless to say, I see those entries years later, read them and then throw them away because who wants to relive bad moments in time? And I'm always freaked out that someone I'm dating will find a journal, read it and then be ticked off at what I've wrote.

So here's to my 100th post...

I have 5 days left to commute from Federal Way....thank GOD because I can't hardly stand it anymore!!!!

A place to call home

Well I've found it. A new apartment. Not the typical cookie-cutter apartment that I've always lived in. No sir...this apartment has character and charm and everything I've always wanted. I always used to LOVE going to Heather's house because her apartment is cool...its got charm (I'm talking painted exposed concrete, diamond pained windows, pottery-barn chic CHARM!). Now I'll be in a full-of-charm apartment in about a week and a half with everything I wanted. A one-bedroom/one-bath, extra storage room apartment on Queen Anne. And to top that off, its only 3 blocks from Heather and 7 blocks from Erin...also 3 blocks from Starbucks, Jamba Juice, endless restaurants...YEAH!!!!

Labor Day Weekend

I for one am looking forward to the long Labor Day weekend. Of course this means that when I go to work next week...5 days of work gets pushed into 4, but I'll live. It should be a nice weekend. The girls and I are going to see Vanity Fair tonight which I am totally excited about. I got a haircut today and am getting it colored tomorrow and that always makes me feel good. Heather B-day part is tomorrow at Chopstix...

Apartment Hunting

Tonight the search begins. Please cross your fingers and wish me luck and hopefully the first apartment I view will be THE ONE. It sounds great, in a fabulous location, decent price and I need to find something fun and unique...please let this be it, if there is a god that loves me in heaven. This week has been amazingly wonderful with getting my 1st week of pay finally (10 weeks late), my tuition reimbursment, ordered a new cell phone after mine died, and just general good stuff.

Update to come tomorrow!!

It sucks

Today I very patiently waited on I-405 for approximatly 20 minutes when I couldn't tolerate being at a DEAD STOP any longer. I pulled into the car pool lane and zipped the last 8 miles to work in 10 minutes flat. I've never done that before, but this morning I just A) Didn't want to wait and B) Didn't want to be late. So bless me for I have sinned...I used the carpool lane with only myself in the car.
