So, I came into this weekend BUMMED because I was going to miss Mumford & Sons AGAIN (missed out on tickets in Austin and next week in Houston) but then all this great shit started piling up (on Friday the 13th, go figure!).

First, in the huge scary sponsor meeting I was recognized by three different groups for all the awesome things I have been doing on the project. My boss wasn't there to hear it, but her boss was and she teased me about it so I know she will report back all the praise I received. This is way better than getting yelled at, which is the norm in these meetings.

Then, on the way home, the Kid called and told me that he had just been unofficially offered a job in El Paso. Woo! Finally, after 10 years in Yuma, he is moving halfway back home. I mean, it sucks that they are no longer going to be close to San Diego, but now that they have the bb Gabs, they don't really road trip that much. And they will be only 8 hours away (a mere hour and a half flight) which is totally effin' awesome. End of an era, though. Having him in Yuma was the last tenuous link I had to the West Coast. Oh, well. Gotta pour one out for my time in Cali. LOL...

And, finally, this morning I went to Old Navy because they had 50% off one item and I am constantly in need of new jeans. Well, I realized while trying some on that I had gone down another size. I didn't trust the one smaller pair I had, so I ran out and got a few more samples to make sure the jeans I had were not stretched or sized incorrectly (verify initial test results!). But I really was in a smaller size, so hooray!

I fully expect, after all this good luck, that my house/car/bowels will explode.

Work is so ridiculously busy right now, but everyone assures me that once all the projects close in November, we can take it easy for the remainder of the year.

Woohoo, David Cook tour! He's making three stops in Texas, so I can definitely swing one, maybe two of those (assuming I can get tickets).

I was invited to take part in the Morrissey pre-sale, but I missed the email somehow and thus when I tried to buy tickets a few hours after they went on sale to the public, THEY WERE SOLD OUT.

I will never understand ticket sales and hope all ticket brokers DIAF.

Okay, that's it for me, I think. So cranky because I spent the whole day in meetings. That always makes me frowny-face.

Mmm, tasty three-day weekend! Plans include the Muppet Movie sing-a-long today and a whole lot of nothing later. Maybe I will finally haul some of this crap to goodwill. Who knows?!

I have been spazzing out over the Deathly Hallows II trailer - as many of you know, I have a huge squishy soft spot for Alan Rickman and that whole end part about Snape just gets me every time I read combine the two and I just don't know if I will be able to stand it. ♥ ♥ ♥

Plus, the whole ending of the saga is just going to wreck me. I may have to go into seclusion.

Friday morning I did not wake up to see the wedding (because I love sleep more than anything in the world), but I did catch the highlights that night on BBC America. For me, it's all about the ceremony and the history of everything. The weight and beauty of all that tradition. My favorite parts were random, like the trumpets announcing the Queen's arrival into Westminster, the aerial shots inside the cathedral, and the WWII bombers flying over the palace. I also thought the trees inside were a romantic, fairytale addition.

Most people around here had no patience for all the hoopla of the event and I can understand that. They will never be our sovereigns or even people we will have to be worried about, from a foreign policy/political standpoint. But I just love the idea of a prince finding and marrying his princess in a traditional and beautiful way.

Also, LULZ:

Next time, I will talk about eating meat until you think you might die, why JP is the sweetest boyfriend ever, and saluting the end of National Poetry Month. I know, it's gripping. Try to contain yourselves...

I got hit on today at the Wal-mart. A legitimate, "can I have your digits?" kind of thing. I felt simultaneously uplifted and terrible because I hate to reject anyone (and he looked like a sweet guy and going up to a strange girl and not coming across as a creeper has got to be hard to do). Anyway, said thanks but no in the nicest way possible. 

I was also thinking today that the summer is halfway over and I have yet to go swimming! Travesty! We have a pool in the neighborhood but goodness knows where I put my pool pass or the 2009 stickers for it. My clutter knows no bounds. None of this would even matter if I had a pool in my backyard. Oh, well. A girl can dream...

I think I will go see Green Day. And skip the shoes. Compromise. Eh? EH?! Still on the fence about P&P&Z.

Also, the more I think about it, the more excited I get about us possibly going to NYC in October. I hope things unfold smoothly and we can go.

Okay, JP and I are going to watch some Buffy because I don't believe in sensible bedtimes!

melcreada: (drinky! yay!)
This week at work=insanity. For some reason, we are crazy-busy. Not that I am's just weird.

And speaking of work, I should re-tool my resume but I think I need someone else to look at it. It's gotten to the point where it looks fine to me, but that is probably because I have written and re-written the damn thing 20 times. Bore-iiiing!!!

This weekend is our Sparkling 4th of July Houston Weekend (I thought that title up all by myself). We will be staying in Galveston (along with, what I expect will be the entire population of Texas, anxious to escape to the beach for the weekend). We are going to see David Cook (YAY) and poke around Moody Gardens and NASA (rawk) and I. Am. Going. To. A. Lush. Store. Finally - I have never been and cannot wait!

Oh yeah, and if it isn't too scuzzy, we might even visit the beach!

I will not let the fact that I just started my period OR the fact that the monstrous growth rate of my hair has made my cute new 'do look all shaggy (and I am not about to start getting trims every 2 weeks...grrr) break-a my stride! Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh no! I got to keep on moving!

David Cook! Fireworks! Millions of people on the highways...all around me...smothering me...

Okay, stopping now. Have a good night, everyone!

Wot, wot?!

One good thing about the swine flu: I get to work from home for the next two days. Let's hear it for 'social distancing!'

I am sooo working in my PJs...
