Let me explain, no wait...there is too much. Let me sum up:

- First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it! Hope yours was as good as ours. Except for someone not getting beer in a timely fashion to my mother (whom I love more than life itself, but I cannot tell a lie...she really needs to have a few drinks if she is going to be in the kitchen), all went smoothly and there was much joy and laughter.

- Work-wise, soon after I made my promise to post more often, I was forced nominated to take over a huge project that my co-worker was in the process of fucking up. I was told that I was the new project manager 20 minutes before my first big meeting. So, you can imagine how that is going. Basically, I have no idea how to do any of this and have been working crazy overtime to try and get shit done. Thanksgiving was the first day I had off since September (unless you count the day I called in violently sick...which I DON'T). But on the up side, they haven't fired me yet so...go me!

- The week I was violently sick was of course the time when Eddie Vedder and Glen Hansard rescheduled their concert here. I dragged my sad carcass to the theater and sucked down approximately a hundred lozenges so I wouldn't hack up a lung during the performances. And even though I felt like shit, I enjoyed the HELL out of that evening. Glen was in excellent form, even though his set was short and his strings kept breaking. Eddie EFFING Vedder sang for 2.5 hours, including two long-ass encores. He was fantastic and the whole thing was basically three hours of two gifted musicians and their guitars. Totally awesome and worth every penny even though my seat was kind of crap. Excellent, excellent, excellent.

- And finally, JP and I came out swinging in regards to Black Friday. I splurged and bought an iPad. He got a 3D monitor so we could try it out. Also picked up a GPS and a basic blu-ray player. We got some movies, some clothes, and I even bought some Christmas gifts for other people (one for you aaaaand three for me).

And that about wraps things up for now. Good night my dear friends. Catch you on the flip side...

Yay! Eddie Vedder and Glen Hansard are coming to San Antonio! Tickets go on sale in a few days, so hopefully I can get one.

Unfortunately, yesterday and today I had some of the worst headaches I've ever experienced. And although the allergens in the air are just brutal (why the fudge is everything blooming right now?!), these were not allergy headaches. A little scary, but we'll see what happens.

Also, in the "I Called It!" news, it looks like those manager positions I decided not to apply for are being re-classified and the starting pay has dropped way down. Talk about a narrow miss! I'm glad I decided not to apply. The people who did apply are pretty peeved, though. In my department, I was informed that even though we are getting two managers, I will not be under either of them. Instead, I will still report to the VP. It's not for sure, but if it does happen, that will be kinda cool. I will be...above the law!

Don't mind me - copious amounts of ibuprofen turn me into a super dork. Off to get more sleep...

Grown up things I did today:

- went to the grocery store
- prepared breakfast for me and my man (and by "prepared breakfast," of course I mean "pick up breakfast tacos at the drive-thru")
- cleaned my entire bathroom from top to bottom (!!!)
- did a pretty impressive load of laundry
- made my lunch for tomorrow (and by "made my lunch" I of course mean I wrapped up some leftover pizza)

I am not participating in Nano this year, but I am in [ profile] wrisomifu and having a blast. They combine some of my favorite things: writing (or not writing) and bitching about writing (or not writing). Thanks for the suggestion, [ profile] sardonicynic (hope you are feeling better, my sweet)!

Perhaps I should rethink all the parenthesis in this entry...

Also, saw the Pearl Jam documentary last night and enjoyed it muchly. It's not some searing, Barbara Walters-type interrogation on the band's experiences but rather a nostalgic look back at the band and all their music. It was a beautiful postcard from the 1990s...made me all wibbly and nostalgic.

Things That Have Escaped My Attention Due to Overwhelming Stress at Work
1. Eddie Vedder and Glen Hansard toured together in late spring/early summer.
2. Who CARES?!?! See #1!!!!

They didn't come anywhere near Texas, but with enough forethought and planning, I could have taken a trip. I suck at keeping track of my favorite artists...

JP went back to the Seattle, WA area this past Sunday and I am very : ( without him. Also, scared at night because I keep hearing things, like imaginary burglars and rapists (but really it's just my creaky house and needy cats). Haha - but once I'm asleep, that's it. They could light me on fire and I wouldn't notice.

Not gonna lie, I teared up as I was watching this trailer. Pearl Jam's music has been the background for a good chunk of my life and I can't hear one of their songs without a river of memories roaring through my head. Can't wait for the movie!   ♥
