Nightime Wonders

Last night I got a phone call to go out and look at the lunar eclipse. I have always wanted to see an eclipse, but either forget they are going to occur, or not had clear enough skies to see one. Last nights eclipse was awesome and I got to experience that...thank you.

Sometimes you just run across a website that can entertain you to no end...

Warning: If you're a bible-holding, cross-hugging, holy water-splashing kind of person, you probobly won't find humor in this: Dress Jesus Up

I don't get too excited about tv usually. I don't have a lot of time to commit to it between school and friends and family. There are a few shows that I like, and never miss (ok, I make my dad TiVo them so I can watch them later...but still never miss them) like ER. I also like America's Next Top Model because its quite possibly one of the dumbest shows on earth. Its kind of like novocane for the brain.

However, last night I received my first disk from Netflix for the series Nip/Tuck....and OH. MY. GOD. it was awesome!! I was all numbed up from my 2 novocaine shots (not to the brain, but to my mouth) laying on the couch and watching Nip/Tuck. I'm now hooked.

A pet

Imagine having this for a your house!!

When in doubt...Tim Curry

Thank you girls for a fun night last night. For those of you who don't know, Elaine, Marisa, Heather and I have started to have 'Sunday Night Dinners' at each other's houses. Last night we had dinner at Heathers (thank you Heather for giving me another soup I actually like). After dinner we played a movie trivia game and we laughed so hard through it that my throat hurts today...because Tim Curry can be the answer to any question.

What will $900 buy you?

2 Pairs of Manolo Blahniks (and a pedicure so your toes look great)
A sofa from Pottery Barn
2 coach tickets to London (and snacks on the plane)
A Gene Juarez Day of Beauty for you and a friend (plus tip)
The Return to Tiffany's necklace, bracelet, ring, cuff links, earrings and keychain.

But the real question is what did I buy today for $900? Nothing FUN like those above that I'd love to have... Nope, I bought a battery, crank sensor, and a power train module for my car. And to top it off, thats not all I'll have to buy. In the next month or so, I'll need 2 rear tires, new bearings on my front wheels and new brakes. Not that I didn't just put brakes on the car 6 months ago or anything. I being punished? I'd rather use that money for fun stuff...not a car that I plan to sell in 12 months! And I swear, if the guy at the dealership calls me one more time to say "Bad News...we need ____" I'm going to LOSE. MY. SHIT.

In response to Elaine's post...apparantly, we are ALL spinsters as defined by the following definitions:

1. A woman who has remained single beyond the conventional age for marrying.
2. A single woman.

My comments to this are: What is the 'convential age', Why are all 'single' women classified as spinsters. Seriously who writes this crap?

In response to Heather's post...the fear or phobia of cats is called Ailurophobia or Felinophobia. Apparently there are clinics and hypnotists that can help you to overcome your fear. Is that a present that you'd like for Christmas? I bet it is...

And to all of you who wondered how my quiz went last night? Let me premise this by saying I was well prepared, memorized what was required and ready to take it...however, my teacher pulled some crazy stuff and tested us on sub-catagories of that which we learned...these were NEVER communicated to us to needless to say, I didn't do too well...

Whats Paldpo? A new fashion designer? A new breed of dog? A virus of some kind? Nope...its the dumb acronym I had to come up with to learn some info for tonights quiz in my finance class. And since I'd love to share that knowledge with all of you (except for Elaine, you probobly know it already)...PALDPO stands for:


Damn finance classes.

A Fall Walk

Heather and I went for a walk last night by our house(s). We walked along and looked at all the cool houses with the cool trim and the cool doors and the cool landscaping and the coolness of it all was nearly too much to bear. We walked through about 10 different kind of leaves and saw the biggest leaf I think I've ever seen. It was a nice cool fall night and it was nice to get out and enjoy it.

Happy Birthday Mom!

I say this to the world to send her good fuzzies, because I know she doesn't read my fact, I've never told her I have a blog. Somethings are just better left unsaid. Either way...happy birthday and I'm sure we'll have a great dinner on Alki.

In a time of crisis:

Thank you for taking me out for chocolate when I'm going a little schizo. The combination of good conversation, fondue, a little retail therapy (ok, not so little: 2 coats, a sweater, a shirt, conditioner, curling iron, 3 cd's, nail polish, a pair of shoes and a pack of gum) and the purchase of a new book today helped me to put a little perspective on the situation.

And yes ladies, when I'm done reading the book we can PASS. IT. AROUND.

  • I should no longer be allowed to take my cell phone with me on a date.
  • The sound of Marisa's "Whaaaaaaaat?" is stuck in my head today.
  • Cashmere truly is one of the best things on earth.
  • I'm leaving work and hour and a half early, going for a walk and a swing.
  • My new purse is fabulous.
  • I love this new restaurant.

Can't Hardly Wait.

I've been waiting for Raise Your Voice to be in the theatres for months and months. Thank you to Heather, Elaine and Marisa who have listen to me sing the song in the trailer endless times. I know its stupid to be 26 and like Hillary Duff movies, but I simply can't help myself. The same goes for singing the song in the C2 commericial.

Other random thoughts...

Marisa used the word 'boobies' once too many yesterday....don't know why, but the word freaks me out. Boobs is ok, so are brests..just not 'boobies'.

The Banana's Foster last night at Firefly was straight-up awesome....yum!

I'm so overly glad it's Friday I cannot even begin to tell you.

So I went shopping for new pants because I have a couple that are just getting boring to wear and a little big. I know I've been eating at home a lot more lately, but my has it paid off...I bought new pants today...and bought them a size smaller...HELL. YEAH.

Blissful Learning

Last night, although my class was dull as recycled paper, it was positive. I've teamed up with a learning team that is going to email throughout the week rather than have a face-to-face meeting every week, which as you know, is a total waste of my time. Thank god there are finally people who understand what its like actually work and go to school for the past couple of years...and knowing that you dont need to look at somebody in the face to work together!!

So...I talked to the quarterly last night and he didn't mention going out this week which is driving me bonkers since he mentioned it Saturday and I told him I'd let him know what my schedule is. I know I should be more aggressive, but you know what. I don't want to be. I don't mind if it takes awhile for him to ask me out because he's great and funny and I don't have my hopes up, but if he asks, that'd be great. So hopefully he will call tonight to schedule something...but if he doesn't its ok 'cause I got stuff to do.

Back to School

Back to School.........

I've had a 6 week break and I hardly remember what it feels like to have to sit for 4 hours and listen to some guy drone on and on about whatever it is he's talking about. Why did I have to choose business? Why couldn't I have chosen interior decorating or something fun? I could look at paint swatches and wood stains and floorplans all night....seriously. But how many interior decorators do you know that make any real money? NOT. MANY. Most are just dumb girls that want to be like 'Tiffany Briggs Design Incorporated' and have their own business when its just some chick in her garage with a phone calling herself a corporation.

Thar she blows!

Mt. St. Helen's erupted today...if you can really call that an eruption. I was all excited for lava and ash and flying boulders...but all that happened was a little wussy steam and that was it...can you imagine my disappointment!! They've been hyping this for a week!
