that bobby jon is smarter than he sounds.

thank god that bobby jon voted off ibrehem. he was worthless and dumb. why didn't he band together with stephanie and vote off bobby jon? she needs to learn some persuading skillz. i hope that gay guy gets voted off of the other team next. i don't like him.

i lost the bet with myself that shaivo would die on sunday. shiiiiiit.

tomorrow at work we are having the 2nd annual edogalog. that is where we quit working at 330 and celebrate the red sox with hot dogs, beer, peanuts and cracker jacks, prizes, red sox apparel, a red sox dvd. the works. i think it'll be fun.

luanne is still sick, she's been sick all week, and will prob still be sick next week. i have NO IDEA what its like to be that sick. i don't even remember the last time i was so sick i had to stay in bed all day (aside from hangovers). i wonder if that has even happened to me, ever. in fact i have so little experience with sickness that i don't know how to react around sick people. i am realizing that i am not really a compassionate person. or i have a really hard time accessing that part of my personality. when i have kids i hope, for their sake, that they are not ill often. or i hope that their father is compassionate enough for the both of us...

i am watching csi as i do this, watching burn victims/stories makes me ill. and of course csi is so graphic.... ugh...

i am almost done with the 2nd part of my book. its getting better, but when i went to burn the 3rd part, i realized that its going to take 6 cds. the first and second parts are already 10 cds... jesus this is a long book, so glad i'm not reading it. =)

there might be a critique this sunday, i am really excited about that, i don't really have anything that i am working on, but i hope to go and meet some of the other members, and maybe get some inspiration to do something. i've been kind of thinking of ideas. i should sketch them out in my sketchbook so i don't forget them.

tue night ramblings

so I just watched the amazing race and was kind of disappointed that it was 2 back to back episodes and not 1 long episode of rob and amber. But when rob and amber just blew by the brothers and the gay guys who were flipped over on the side of the road I laughed so hard. They are right. It is a race... hahahahahah

is it just me or did anyone else think that terri shiavo would have died by now? Its day 12... I'm going to guess she lasts till Sunday. Anyone else want to guess with me?

I went crazy on eharmony today, I responded to everyone in my queue. We'll see what happens.

I also watched an episode of everybody loves Raymond tonight waiting for AR. It made me really miss ELR at 11pm. I hate "friends".


i saw this on someones away message... how true.

i found it...

there is this song that the irish singers in town sing, and its a real irish song, not like country road. my friend flora was saying that she really liked the song at the end of veronica guerin. so i found out what it was and downloaded it. in case you want to hear it for yourself it's here. it's a song called 'fields of athenry'. i've downloaded a couple of versions of it now, and looked up the lyrics, nothing holds a candle to the veronica guerin version.

the new book i am reading for book club is pretty boring. i'm glad i am "listening" to it instead of reading it. i would have quit it many chapters ago if i was reading it.

***spoiler***i just watched the last episode of season 3 of ballykissangel. omigod, so sad. i knew asumpta was going to die at some point, and of course it was in the same episode that she and peter professed their love for one another, but i was blown away when it happened... i am not only sad that asumpta is dead, and peter is leaving ballkissangel, but i'm sad that i will have to wait a year or so more till season 4 is released on dvd. colin farrell might be in season 4 though... ***end of spolier***

that reminds me i should look on netflix and see if anymore 'dinner for 5' episodes are available.

i just remembered that i said i would go on a pub crawl april 8th... i wonder if i could do it and not drink.

another tsunami?

just what we need to distract us from whether or not we want our families to pull the plug on us when we collapse due to an eating disorder!

"easter" was fun. on saturday i had dinner in skaneateles and met debbie fiancee john, he was very nice. they seemed to make a good couple. then later that night i met jen, mike, shannon and pete out for some drinks at colemans. lucky for us the WB band sirsy was there and soo loud. we found the porch to be the least loud place. after all of that i had a hard time sleeping because my stomach acids were trying to drown me. when i was going to the bathroom that night i got coughing so much i had to puke in my hand. because of that i am deciding to take the month of april off of drinking. i need to address this problem before i choke on my own vomit and die some night.

my mom colored eggs without me and even put the little costumes on the eggs too. check them out, i took the pictures though.. pretty cute!

i showed cathy how to use ofoto, and i set up her camera software so it will download her pics off her camera into a directory on her desktop. so now she should have no excuse for not sending photos.

another friend at work

yay, jen got the job! she only had to interview once even! honestly, luanne put in such a good word for her, and luanne is such a stellar employee, i wouldn't be surprised if they wanted to hire jen before she even interviewed.

now jen can cry at her desk like the rest of luannes team! yippee skippee! haha

honestly, i'm so excited. work is going to be that much more fun than it already is! woot!

so, i'm off to the 'cuse this weekend, hopefully i get to see debbie and shannon and pete. and i'm bringing home all kinds of laundry. hahahahaha

the candle party at becca's was fun last night. she made all this food. tons of gourmet stuff. it was nice to eat a complete meal for a change instead of my usual soft pretzel and some cheese, or a bowl of pasta and butter...

church anyone?

i forgot to write this, this morning. so last night i was talking to cathy, and i was telling her about how luanne and i had a conversation about church, and the differences between cathloic mass and prodestant mass, and just the religions in general. and seeing as its easter this weekend i was kind of thinking, i haven't been to church in YEARS aside from ireland and weddings and funerals. i bet my mom and dad would go with me this coming sunday. so i suggested this to cathy. the following was her response.

sigh, "uhm, ehhh.. (long pause) kitty would go with you!"

how funny is that.

its snowing!!!

yesterday it was nice enough that i didn't even wear a coat. this morning it looks like its turning into a blizzard. i love new england!

i missed all but the last 10 minutes of survivor last night. i did see however that my guy james got kicked off. =(. stephanie is my other person. i'm thinking she'll make it to the merge at least.

tonight i am going to a candle party. wooo who. more candles.

amazing race

i've never really watched amazing race for an entire season. but when i heard amber and rob from survivor (of which i've seen almost every season) were going to be on i knew i had to watch it. they went from 5th place to 1st place this week. i really hope they win. they are ruthless, and i love it. if they don't win, i hope the POW and his g-f win. then i hope he dumps her. she seems worthless.

oh no. it's 10:05 pm and i'm getting sucked into punk'd......

successful shopping trip...

so, i went to Freeport most of yesterday and got all kinds of great stuff. i found a couple new birds, totally cute! i returned the bag Emily got me for my birthday for the "storm chaser clogs" in blue. i love them!!!! so excited. i also found a bag that i really like. its over the shoulder, black, and perfect. exactly the right size. i also found some new vanilla perfume, an adorable tiny purse, cool candle holders, mini tapers, and some car fresheners. very productive!

right now i am waiting to go to the gym with carlita... i'll be listening to my book on tape. woot! the new book is "reading lolita in tehran". i never read lolita, but i heard about it this weekend... i heard its a movie too, and sting sang about it in one of his songs.

alright. till tomorrow.

looks so nice out

the weather today looks so nice. i think i am going to get my eyebrows waxed before i meet flora. that will be great cause then i can go around all day with red shiny face. sweet! i might even walk down to the place its so nice out.

i wonder if i can up the limit on my credit card so i can pay my taxes with it this year. hopefully this is the last year ever that i will have to pay taxes. otherwise i'll need to open a new credit card. ugh. i hate credit cards.

alright shower time, and time to be productive.

kiss me, i'm irish!

So yesterday was st patty’s day. We celebrated all day.. At lunch the creative team took the brits out to not your average joes. had some wine, on the way back to the office we picked up some beer and I had a couple more throughout the afternoon. at 630 we left and drove to Cambridge - porter square to pick up a German girl, and headed out to Brighton. all the "good bars" were full, so we ended up at our "favorite" bar, the castle.. It was pretty neat there, more people then average, decorations, our favorite bartender, 12 of our closest friends. I had a pounding headache from drinking all day at work. grrrr.

I was in bed by 11pm hee hee. I’m so old. Surprisingly today i am not hung over. Bonus!

Someone from my training group was mysteriously "let go" today at work. it was very frightening.. About 3 weeks before her 90 day mark. My 90 day mark is April 4th. I’m holding my breath till then.

Tomorrow I am going to Worcester to pick up a chair with a friend. And Sunday we're going to Freeport. aaaaaaawwww yeah. So exciting!

good times.

so, i haven't written in a while. lots of mundane and thrilling things going on.

first off, jen has an interview next wednesday at my company. woot! fingers crossed.

2ndly, today we had a "welcome to america" gathering at work today for the 8 or 9 people we have visiting from the british office. at about 515 everyone gathered in the "open space" and drank bud light or sam adams, and ate food from red bones. and then we had apple pie. they also hired someone to sing classic rock with his acoustic guitar. i had three beers. =). we talked quite a bit to a few of the british guys. nik said something that was soooo funny. he referred to the north end as the 'italian quarter', and we corrected him and said it was called the "north end". he said, "well they had a lot of coffee, and there were many tan, shifty looking people. hahahahahahahaha. who doesn't laugh at stereotypes?

3rd-ly i got paid from the guy in california, finally. its been since thanksgiving..

4th, i put pics from this weekend up on ofoto. if you want to see them and i didn't already send you a link, email me and i'll send them to you.

david lee roth is doing the morning show this week on ZLX. ugh, he sucks. you'd think he was on am radio. he talks and talks and talks. and makes people call him "diamond dave". ugh, i can't wait till steve sweeney is back.

i can't wait till st patricks day. i wonder if i can talk anyone into an irish breakfast before work on thursday. we are going to go to the briar thursday for dinner/drinks immediately after work thursday. wooooot!

alright, i'm tired.

ten three suited.

so i was playing poker tonight and got a 10 and 3 of clubs... i had the short stack, so what the f. i kept calling (my specialty) and was eventually called all in. the flop was 3 clubs. and the river was a club too. i beat out an A,J and K,Q for the main pot (tripling up). everyone was cheering, i felt like such a winner. i did however eventually bluff away all my chips.. but it was good fun for just $5.

there is always next week.

so cold here...

its insanely cold here, yesterday it was so nice. i had to blow my runny nose like 12 times tonight while i worked.. i have really gotten into the habit of taking a REALLY hot shower before i go to bed cause otherwise, i'd be a popsicle and would have to get into an equally cold bed. shiiiiiiit. and a really interesting thing is that sometimes the heat/steam from the shower sucks the shampoo right out of my bottle, and it leaks all over the shower. its so kewl, and i wonder why i need to buy so many hair products.

tomorrow i am going to play poker if the weather is cooperative.. hopefully i will win millions! hahahaha.

i was thinking about going to freeport on the 19th to exhange my bday gift from M. if anyone wants to go, let me know, i was thinking of going up relatively early and taking my time up there and back, and shopping a little at the outlets while i'm there, and maybe even stop in portsmouth for a beer/dinner.

i am so sad that everybody loves raymond is not on at 11 anymore. grrrrr.

there's something in the beer...

so. saturday was harpoonfest. i've voiced this concern before, but i'm convinced of it now... they must put something in the beer. i have never talked to anyone that was drinking that did not have "the time of their life" at one of these events. something in the beer makes you want to come back for more, brave the elements, brave the ridiculous lines at the port-a-john, and for the very intoxicated, test out the "two to a john" policy. just a warning, they frown on that!

i would think that mystery substance in the beer even made me "disappear" for a couple of hours if it were not for my digital camera and my cell phone history..

needless to say, it was a fantastic time, and if you have never gone, you're missing out big time.

also. i am adding a disclaimer to this blog, "These are my personal opinions, and not only should they be "read" with a grain of salt, but if you are very sensitive, and easily offended you'll be better off not reading this."

yay! it's beer time here at work. i love fridays, someone just stopped by my cube with a cold miller light like he was santa claus.

i must have been a very good girl this week.


90% sure

phew. i just got a "90% sure" that Mr Sa is not going to harpoonfest from someone "in the know".. that makes me breathe a little easier. i just wish i didn't have the feeling my stomach is going to be in knots and i'm going to have diarrhea all day tomorrow... i wonder how much harpoon it will take to make that feeling go away. i guess we'll find out.

breaking news....i heard that if you arrive between 2-3 you are entered to win a trip to bermuda or something. awesome! i'll be there with bells on.

"Tina you fat lard, come get some dinner!"

the skellig

so.. the skelling is a very cool place. parking around there is non-existant, if you can believe it. its owned by the same owners as the burren, so expectingly, its VERY similar, two rooms, seperated by a hallway, music in the last room, wooden benches. i like the skellig much better than the burren. and they have all kinds of beers on tap. the food wasn't that bad either.

i met with laurie, an old coworker, she had some gossip about the old company, and old coworkers, it was nice to chat and gossip. she also was telling me about her new job, she works with kids from 0-13 who have been taken from their homes by dss, and placed in these houses. she kind of baby sits. but she has to write down what all the kids are doing/where they are every 15 minutes, and sometimes monitor their phone calls. it sounds very stressful to me. i could not imagine doing that job. and then the kids leave by getting placed in foster care, or back with their parents. and some of the stories about why the kids are there in the first place is so sad... it just seemed so sad and stressful a job..

but, i've always said, i'm not a "people person".

LK seems very upset with me. see her blog.

sorry LuAnne if i sounded "insensitive" here.

Thursday, March 03, 2005

dinner tonight with laurie

tonight i am going to the skellig in waltham. i've never been. should be exotic and thrilling. hopefully i will be done in time to watch survivor.. i missed it last week. =(. but someone here at work tivo's it, so maybe i can bribe her into taping the two shows i will have missed for me.

LK is in NJ today and tomorrow for work. how cool. but she had to fly. i bet she is crying. =)

i fell asleep on the couch at 830 last night. i was so tired.

saturday is harpoonfest, i can't wait, but i am nervous to run into people i'd rather not see.

amazing race!

so i got a bunch of work done and also saw the amazing race. i want rob and amber to win. i love that rob..

priscilla and katrina cancelled on me. "priscilla got 16 emails today!!!!" she's too busy. i have no sympathy, i get anywhere from 200-500 emails a day.

godamn its cold up here...

we watched most of napoleon dynamite again tonight. that movie is so funny.


so last night we all moved here at work.. i am now in the "creative corridor" its much quieter over here, and i have a tall cube (about 6 feet tal), and about twice the room i used to have.

i just need to ramp up my decorations now. i'm thinking the hello kitty lights would look good here. =)

sushi for dinner tonight. that is, if priscilla doesn't cancel...
