Happy T-Day!!!!

Blondie, Bbbb, Shelbs and I started the day out early today and went turkey trotting! Blondie did awesome and ran it in exactly 30 mins, and I came in at 40:24. I'm okay with the time, mainly b/c it's about 2 mins less than I was expecting.

I'm about to go make a green bean casserole (and a vodka drink) before we head over to Shelbs and Bbbb for the afternoon.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Finally, a 4 day late happy birthday to the Sheriff and a 1 day late happy birthday to TT and Beckers! Don't freak out everyone - I called everyone on their actual birthday, just forgot to put it on the blog.

It's early... I'm grumpy...

T-week plans to take all week off and staycation in my city and do some touristy things have been cancelled in lieu of... wait for it... WORK.


The capper on my poop pie is that I had to also work overnight tonight.

WOOT WOOT (double WOOT).

I hope my coworkers avoid me tomorrow. :)


P.S. As not happy as I was about tonight, I'm still okay now, b/c I'm about 10 seconds from taking the cat that's sleeping against my leg right now and heading back into the bedroom to curl up against Blondie. That makes it all okay.

A little bit of filming... a little bit like my mom...

Our lovely street has been once more blocked off for the filming of a TV show that's probably going to be cancelled after this season. This show is a wonderfully horrible series called "Trauma". When I watched the first episode, I got SO furious with the character that drove his car like a maniac while reciting lines from Bullitt. 1) You aren't Steve McQueen. 2) OMG. STOP DRIVING LIKE A F'ING IDIOT!

Yes, I'm my mom. I'm going to drive 7 miles an hour under the speed limit and then tell everyone that limit doesn't mean minimum. (Oh wait, I already do that).

Anyhoo, the car that he drove like a maniac is parked about 5 houses down from us right now, and all the extras are out in full-force. There are ambulances and firetrucks everywhere.

I will definitely miss this. It's annoying, but it's also pretty f'ing cool to watch.

Chilling like a villian...

Watching some football and eating some pizza bread today. GO PACKERS.

We have finalized our Xmas plans - this will involve a stop in Texas, along with a drive to KY in a U-Haul. That's right folks - we are finally getting rid of our storage shed in DFW, and moving all of our crap back into my parental unit's house. They are going to drive down and meet us in Memphis on the drive back, otherwise, Blondie and I would kill each other. We don't drive well together. Apparently, he drives like he's in Nascar and I drive like I'm a senile 90 year old. :) It's true on both parts.

Hung out with the fabulous Shelbs and Bbbb yesterday. It was really good seeing them and getting to catch up on everything. They both are enjoying their new SOMA jobs, and I'm happy to have them around again!

My PM quit from work - it was a sad day. She's the only one who brought any kind of order to the project I'm working on, so we will definitely miss her. But, we did have a blast celebrating her last day. I don't think Thirsty Bear will let us anywhere near the bar again.

Thanksgiving plans include taking the week off from work and stay-cationing in SF - we are going to hit up the California Acacdemy of Sciences, and the Yoda statue in the Presidio, and I'd love to take a Blue/Gold cruise through the bay. We will be at Shelbs and Bbbb for Thanksgiving dinner, along with all 4 of us running a Turkey Trot in GGP in the morning.

Things I'm thankful for this year:
1) The launch of Blondie's website. SO PROUD OF HIM!!!!
2) Great friends whom we get to spend T-Day with!!!!
3) A job in this crappy economy.
4) The fact that our respective siblings have spawned the greatest kids ever!!! We love all of our nieces (4 of them, soon to be 5)
5) Family that supports us no matter what we do!

The dreaded day...

First off, last Thurs, Blondie and I met my friend KT for burgers at the new restaurant Burger Bar. I loved it! They had an awesome beer selection, and an even more awesome shake selection, and the burgers were sooooo good. I even got a fried egg on my burger! And Blondie had a twinkie shake, complete with a twinkie stuck in the top.

Then, last Friday, it was off to the Warfield to see Kevin Smith do a stand-up show. Blondie bought the tickets for my birthday b/c I'm a KS freak. One of my fav movies of all times is Clerks ("no time for love, Dr Jones") and KS is seriously one of the funniest people I've heard talk. THANKS BLONDIE!

Saturday we headed down to the hood to get some yummy Say Cheese goodness, and Sunday was designated "Lazy Ass Day" and all we did was watch football (and I drank, and passed out also).

Monday was not a good day - yes, I know, I'm being dramatic. I'm fully aware I'm being dramatic. But that day still felt like shit. Luckily it was KT, Blondie, Bbbb and Shelbs, and about 10 drinks to the rescue! This is all I'm going to post about the actual b-day itself b/c I don't really want to remember it.

Okay... moving on.... Blondie met me last night for some sushi, and after this week (it's been some crazy time at work), it was so needed. Hot sake, eternity roll, and then bed. So refreshing. The rest of the week is going to be spent trying to get this project to launch. Ugh.
