TV is My Friend

Well, this past weekend was everything I wanted it to be.  Full of wine, TV, relaxation, and time with my couch.  I also accidentally went shopping and spent too much money, but that’s typical.  It really wasn’t my fault though, I had a $100 off coupon to Coach that expired on July 31, and I couldn’t let it go to waste.  I bought this, I really did need a black purse that can be used as a clutch and dressy bag for weddings and such.

I also bought that new Frizz Ease three-day straight crap, which I am in the process of reviewing, and from what I can tell it’s not crap at all.  I used it yesterday, and then ventured out in the 99 degree heat to run errands, eat lunch, etc, it’s still super straight today even after sleeping.  I’ll update you all tomorrow on the progress.  Yes, I will take one for the team and not wash my hair for a few days.

On Saturday night I discovered Netflix had release all of Mad Men to their instant queue, and yesterday I spent about 9 hours watching it with Adrienne.  I officially have an obsession, his name is Jon Hamm, aka Don Draper, aka sexy man beast.  However, did you know he’s only 5’11” ?  He looks so much larger than that on TV, it must be the shoulders…. mmm the shoulders, so broad and manly.  Oh, sorry, I got distracted.  Uh, thank god I get to see my boyfriend in three days, that’s all I have to say about that.  Although it was funny to hear the random comments popping out of mine and Adrienne’s mouth throughout the day.  Example:

Don to his daughter: “It’s ok, you can ride me around the living room.” (she wanted to go horse back riding with Betty)
Me: “I’ll ride you around the living room like a horse.”
Adrienne: “Mmmmhmmmm.”

Please send help, or men, the Mad Men marathon continues tonight.

I also watched the TLC special on Nick Lachey and Vanessa Manillo’s wedding, and at first it just made me miss Newlyweds, but the two of them as a couple grew on me.  Their wedding in the BVI looked really fun also.  Although, if I was interpreting conversations correctly, I don’t think she does a certain thing that men typically always want done.  Poor guy, first he marries Jess who wouldn’t give it up until marriage, and now he can’t get something else done.  Anyone else watch?  Did you interpret that also?

Alright, I’m out, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.


Do You Like Me?

Some business to take car of off the bat this morning, happy birthday to my mom!  I hope you like the present Col and I got you, if not, there’s a gift receipt :).  Also, yesterday I finally took the plunge and created a Facebook page for the blog so love me/hate me/want more material to make fun of me for/whatever, can you all click HERE and “like” it so I don’t look like a loser?  I promise to try to keep it interesting and post things that you wouldn’t just see here or on Twitter.  Thanks friends!

After the craziness that went down at the end of the day on Monday, yesterday ended up being much more relaxing at work.  I finished everything I currently had to do by 10 am, and no other requests came in.  I like when that happens.  Since I wasn’t incredibly sore from Monday’s workout, I decided to actually get a run in yesterday at lunch.  I knew it was going to suck since it had been a little while since my last one, but I managed to do 3 miles in about 28 minutes.  I’m hoping to squeeze one more run in this week, we’ll see though.

Last night Adrienne and I watched season 1, disc 2, of Mad Men, and the more I watch the more my attraction to Jon Hamm is solidified.  And the desire to smoke and drink, they just make it look so good!  At least I can booze while watching without feeling too bad.  Seriously though, so sexy.

I wish I could get more than three episodes at a time, dear Netflix please hurry with the next disc.  Thanks!  The rest of the week isn’t looking to bad for once.  Tomorrow our whole Reg Affairs department has some team building event nonsense in DC which means an afternoon off work.  For me, it also means I’m “working from home” in the morning.  They were out of their minds if they thought I was going to drive to MD to work, get on a bus to DC, take a bus back to MD, and then drive back home to VA.  No thanks, I’ll meet everyone at the museum.  Cocktails and snacks take place around 2 pm and the day is over at 3:30.  Fantastic.

Friday I have my summer hours half day, followed by an immediate departure to the beach with the roommates.  We’re heading up to DE for a long weekend, three glorious nights of salty air and fun.  Just need to get through Wednesday.  Let’s hope it’s more like yesterday than Monday.  Have a lovely day!
