O. M. G.

This is officially the best day ever. It was the best day ever because Ian is coming to visit... but it is even more awesome because The Office put out the promotion for the upcoming season. O. M. G. I'm nervous and scared and it's only 6:03am... But it's a good day!

The Way I Are

*shakes booty* This song is getting me through a 151 slide presentation... and my jitters...

Floating... Again...

And we are back to where it all began... I am anxious, nervous and scared... but really... it just makes me feel so alive. I am floating again and I hope this weekend goes well. I think in the end... it will just be this wonderful, fun, relaxing extended weekend being roasted by the heat.. but still loving every second. "Give me gravity, give me clarity... give me something to rely on..."

Also, here is another TREOS song... Planning a Prison Break... Gotta love those skinny jeans... yes I'm serious... =D

Diaper Free? Yeah... Uhm... No.

Parents begin potty training at birth...

Yeah... I don't know about that one... Seems sort of hippy-ish to want your child to "signal" you at 14 weeks that they need to go to the bathroom. Personally, I look forward to the diapers... and the baby wipes... and all the hassle. Oh and I am never letting my child go the bathroom in a public restroom sink..........

Infinite Silence

7 days... in case anyone wasn't aware.. that's a week... one little teeny tiny week... I'm okay! Thank god it's Friday though... There are certain people at work that are getting on my nerves... I find myself being irritated almost hourly... that's an awful way to be. Anyway, I bought my dress for the Seattle trip... Hopefully it fits and I look good in it! /crosses fingers...

This Is Ridiculous

Widowed by WOW

Oh come on! Okay, okay... I get that WoW is addicting. I play myself. Probably an above average amount. But come on! At what point does real life start taking place. You choose the artificial life over the real thing??? Don't get me wrong... I went willing into a relationship where a guy played almost 24/7 and I was punished for it when I had uprooted my life for the guy and landed in Craplando. But seriously... You marry a guy and then he is willing to disappear into a video game so often that you feel like he is absent from your life??? GET OUT. Get out like yesterday. I game.. But it doesn't define me. I am with someone who games with me... But it isn't about WoW. It's about being together. I am sorry but if you choose someone who likes to disappear quite often into a game rather than spend time with you or the kids... You're an idiot and you deserve what you get. And if you're the addict... you're pathetic.

Superbad -- Thoughts?

Really Long Movie Title

You would think they would have cut it in half...

Anyway, look at the countdown to the right... Yeah.. OMGOMGOMGOGMGOMG. I am ok.

Bobblehead Britt

My mind is in 20 different places at the moment. Lots of babble at work... Planning for the Labor day weekend and my Seattle trip in October... Straightening my house, bills and dealing with my everyday "stuff". Today was one of the first days in a really long time that I have felt good - even if the sun is shining - and happy that things are going smoothly. It's just this damn seasonal depression. I know that everyone thinks it is just so weird that I get depressed in the summer time... but I really do. I have lived my whole life, minus the stint in craplando, in a place that has beachy weather 90% of the year. I can't even remember the last time it rained properly. The only good side to these days is the mornings tend to be foggy along the coast. My place is situated in the mountains between the beach and the rest of the city... During the night, a thick fog will roll in from the ocean and stay usually until 9am if I'm lucky. Now it's perfectly sunny with a slight breeze. Blah. Still... I shouldn't complain. I'm tremendously lucky. I should remember that. Even if it is "beautiful" outside.

Why Can't We Look The Other Way?

So yeah.............

14 days, half of which is a number that begins with 7 and ends with 7 and there is only

one of them.

I am not freaking out.

It's Friday! I am so lightheaded at the moment... I am not sure why... Anyway... back on Monday.

I can't sleep. Last night I didn't get much sleep... tonight is even worse. It's now 2:30 or so and I've been up since 12:30. One reason could be that I'm just hot and it's making me uncomfortable... but... I just lay there and start thinking... Not about anything too exciting either... I think about work... what I'm going to wear the next day... what I am going to do this weekend (highlight my hair and other girly things)... just random mundane stuff... Then I start to drift off... but I start thinking about the countdown and then I'm wide awake. It's a vicious cycle. OK! Glass of water and then back to bed. Enjoy the soothing sounds of Twelve Girls Band (actually it's 13 girls playing traditional Chinese instruments).

Sappy Pathetic Little Me

It is 2:30am and I can't sleep. I slept from 10pm til now... and I can't seem to get back to sleep. It's odd... I toss and turn... get up... pad softly to the kitchen across the cold hardwood floors to get a drink of water... back to my bed where the sheets have turned cool again... lay back down and try everything to go back to sleep. I'm not really thinking about anything in particular. Well... the course of events that has led me to where I am right now maybe... Being sort of lost out of high school because of my age and my shaky family structure at the time. Landing an 'okay' job at Countrywide that was almost too easy for me. Meeting some guy who promised me everything, giving up everything for said guy and moving to a state that really should be cut off from the rest of the United States and left to float away into the Atlantic ocean. (Seriously... worst state ever). Having enough sense to know that it's not working and leaving said state early one morning and driving north along the east coast essentially making a giant u-turn. Feeling like the biggest failure, jobless yet again and sleeping on the stone floor of the office in my mom's house. A few days later getting a call from my dream job at Amgen to become at least a temp. Getting to know a funny, cocky guy that opens me up to his world and his friends. Finding a small but new place to live in a very wealthy neighborhood close to work. Interviewing like crazy in the mad hope of landing FINALLY a permanent position that includes a nice salary and health benefits. Being branded by the funny, cocky guy and quietly trying to escape it. Still interviewing so many times I can hardly count them... and being let down that I'm just not quite what they were looking for... Finding someone who can make me laugh... and I can make him laugh. Floating at the mere thought that there is someone in my life I can be completely comfortable with. Giving up the last shred of hope for finding a permanent position at Amgen... only to get a last minute call about interviewing for some random position in the main building for some high level executive... Spending one whole day doing non-stop interviews and getting the call a half hour after they finish that I have landed it. Falling deeply in love with someone I didn't think I could stand a chance with. Adjusting my days and nights to maximize my time with said person. And now counting down the days until I get my reward for being so patient... err well... impatient but still.

I have probably posted about this before... but it's what is on my mind... I am not always looking back... but I think it is really important for me to know where I have been. Now that the above mess is out of my head... and it is 3:00am... maybe I can sleep.

Why Is It So Hot?!?!

Maybe they forgot to drop in the ice cubes this week...
