Anyone Want a Cat?

Adorable 8lb cat available immediately.

Enjoys lounging in the sun, cuddling on your lap, and begging for human food.  Perfect for insomniacs, as her latest passion seems to be running up and down the stairs for hours upon hours at dawn.  She will never fail to keep you company during the late night infomercials.  Inquire within.

Moving on.  It seems people were split on the tattoo question.  Some found them scary, others said meh not really and they liked tattoos.  Maybe they’re scary to me because I know him?  Boy’s got one helluva temper on him.  As do I, so you can imagine how rational we are when arguing with each other :).  Anyway, he has plans to get more, so we’ll see what those end up looking like.  Also, bonus points to anyone who can tell me where the two on his back come from.

For some reason Monday and Tuesday night’s traffic was out of control, and the last thing I want to do after it takes me an hour and a half to get home is work out.  So I didn’t.  Either nights.  Woops.  I swear I will tonight, although with temps hitting the mid 60s today I can only imagine how unbearable the gym temperature will be so I’m hoping to run outside.  We shall see my friends, we shall see.

When I left for the mid-west last week, signs of spring were beginning to show in the DC area.  There were buds on the trees, and flowers poking through the ground.  I landed in Milwaukee to snow on the ground and children still sledding and died a little inside.  Luckily, upon my return, I noticed spring had really sprung here in VA.  There were green trees, yellow flowers, and buds almost ready to bloom.  The actual first day of spring is on Saturday, and I am thrilled!  It’s almost Cherry Blossom Festival time, which means it’s almost time for me to run a 10 mile race.  I really need to get my ass in gear these next three weeks, sigh.

Hey, it’s Wednesday!  Let’s celebrate that.

Back to Work

Well I am back at work today, with maybe five other people.  In fact, there are so few people here that every entrance to the parking garages were closed and the people who are here have nowhere to park.  Way to go facilities, if you boot my car while it’s parked in “Visitor” I will throw a fit.

I made it back to VA by about 7:30 last night, after once again getting stuck in two hours worth of traffic.  My favorite part of the drive?  Entering MD and reading on the emergency sign, “Congestion, exits 94-64 expect major delays.”  It was awful, and the only reason for the congestion as far as I could tell, sun glare.  Not fun.  At all.  At least Pumpkin was very happy to see me when I walked in the door, she’s been following me around ever since.  I opened my shower curtain this morning and she was sitting on the carpet right in front of it.  She’s a weirdo, that cat.

Even though this is only my first day of work for the week, it is Wednesday which means happy hour day!  A lot of people are off this whole week, so I’d imagine the happy houring will begin even earlier than usual, haha.  I’m off again on Friday, so only two days of work to get through before another long weekend.  I think I can handle that.

Now, I’m going to get serious for a minute, and I debated writing about this, but I’ve been getting emails and questions asking, so here goes.  Yes, Alex and I are no longer together.  Long distance is hard, and it just wasn’t working for us anymore.  He is a great guy, and was an amazing boyfriend and I wish him the best and hope the two of us can be friends eventually.  And that’s all I’m going to say about that.

On a lighter note, does anyone have any fun plans for New Years?  Also check out this hilarious video of my friend Chris scaring the hell out of his nephew, haha.

Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve!  After the most horrible drive home in the history of the world yesterday, I finally made it back to Philly around 5 pm.  A drive that should have taken three hours, took five, I was not a happy camper.  I had about an hour to relax and freshen up before it was back out the door and in the car to head over to a family friends for dinner.

Lan and Beth were our neighbors in our old neighborhood when we first moved to PA from CT, so they have literally watched me and my sister grow up and we always try to get together when both of us are home.   We enjoyed appetizers, champagne, wine, a salad with homemade crab cakes, and a delicious sweet and sour chicken with rice.  No pictures, but everything was amazing.  After a dinner that lasted until about 11 pm, I came home and got to see an old friend.


Darren and I


Remember this series of posts?  Well after not seeing each other since 2006, The German (Darren) and I finally had a chance to hang out and catch up, and it didn’t even feel like four and a half years had passed. We stayed up talking until almost 4 am and finally called it a night when I could no longer keep my eyes open.  It was really nice to see each other and catch up, and I hope we can get together again before I head back down to VA, because if it took him three years to finally come back East again, who knows how long it could take next time.

After my late night, I had a glorious nights sleep and didn’t get out of bed until 11 am this morning!  Seriously unheard of for me lately, and now my sister and I are relaxing on the couch watching Lifetime :).  I think mad Christmas Eve prep is about to begin soon though, as the family is expected to arrive around 6, so I’m not sure how much longer my relaxing morning will last.  Enjoy your Christmas Eve!
