The day has finally come

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

I have finally made good on my promise for pictures!  I currently only have pictures from this year up – I will have to carefully weed through older photos and decide what is worthy of posting, but they’ll be coming along soon now that I have a functioning picture viewing mechanism installed on my site.  You can access my photos by clicking the link at the top of the page or if you scroll to the bottom of my sidebar you can see random images and there is a link there that says “View all Pictures”.  Let me know if you notice something is not working!  😉

Adios Coffee-Cat

Monday, September 11th, 2006

The other day I realized that I have had the coffee-cat theme up for over a year. It was last August that I got so sick that I couldn’t go to work for four days. I was unable to do anything but lay on the couch with kleenexes stuffed up my nose or sit at my computer and find something to do to take my mind off the fear that I was going to stop breathing or have a stroke/seizure from all the medicine I had ingested. Perhaps all of the cough medicine and anxiety inspired some creativity – but if I have to be that ill to get creative, well I’ll just opt to stay boring. Anyways, I’m working on the pictures section now. It will be up soon.

The weekend was relaxing for the most part. However, on Friday our water-tank began leaking hot water and flooded the basement. I flipped out over it because it just seems like ever since I moved in things keep going wrong. It was fixed by Saturday afternoon, and the electrician came last week and fixed our broken outlets, and next week a guy is supposed to come and put something in to connect the water tank to our drain just in case it ever leaks again, and he said he will fix our step to the upstairs that is wobbly and may collapse soon. So yeah, lets keep our fingers crossed that the house stops breaking!

On Saturday evening Bryan and I went out to dinner at Max & Erma’s in Shadyside and had dinner. Afterwards we went to the Waterfront and saw the movie Taladega Nights. I didn’t think I’d like the movie because I’m not really a Will Ferrel fan, but it was so funny and I loved it! I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much during a movie. I definitely recommend it if you are in the mood for a stupid comedy that is a bit ridiculous, but not too ridiculous to be unbelievable or annoying. On Sunday we had lunch/dinner at Eatin’ Park and I checked out some books at Barnes and Noble. I picked up White Oleander because I think I may have seen the movie and I remember it being an Oprah Book Club book a few years back and there was a big thing about it. I am tired of the usual murder mystery or all the crap about single women going shopping and being bitches. Everytime I go to a bookstore I don’t understand the crap I see sitting on the table where the new books are. All these books with pink covers and high-heels on the front cover about some girl working in Manhattan being a complete bitch. I will admit that I did read “Devil Wears Prada” and it was good, but when I picked up another similar book about a girl living in Manhattan working for yet another Fashion Magazine I’d had enough. Ughh. Anyways, if anyone has any recommendations on good fiction books, let me know!

trying to waste five minutes

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

It is so hard to do work after a long weekend! It has been a long day, I feel like whining. I’m going out for drinks after work (hooray!) Ok so I’ll only drink one or two, but I don’t care! In other news, um nothing except that I’ve been making a web-album and it sucks but I want to share my glorious photos so I don’t care. By the way, its really ugly outside and I hate it. And every week I keep having to leave my house earlier to get to work. Who knew that school and college students would clog up my road to work to the point where I might as well just walk to work at the rate the bus moves in the morning. Well … if I walked to work it would probably take a really freaking long time. Ok, work is over in one minute so I’m out to get some eat and drink on.

Farewell my friends.

Yeah :)

Is everyone excited about the long holiday weekend? Well, I know I am! I am going to sleep until I cannot sleep any longer because I am a sleep deprived girl with broken feet from walking 340 miles yesterday and from only being able to sleep for six hours a night most nights. I AM TIRED! Besides that exclamation I guess I have been doing things that make me tired. I wish I had more time to relax sometimes, I like to be lazy. Yesterday my grandpa had a big surgery, and is on a long road to recovery from it, but things are ok so far, I probably won’t know much more for a few days. I spent the day with my family sitting in the waiting room up in the sky, watching emergency choppers land on the roof and watch my dad point at every building in Pittsburgh and listen to him say “what is that building?” When I replied “I don’t know” about a hundred times, he decided to venture outside for a walk to see what was around. He returned about a half hour later, claiming that there were ‘scary’ people outside. Well, that’s Pittsburgh Dad.

After all that, I went to Steelers game last night with some sexy guy who likes to spoil me. Yeah how exciting is that! Our seats were like super amazing. Someday I may regret all this good stuff because I’ll go to a sporting event and cry because my seats are mediocre. I could really get used to this! I’m not even going to promise that I’ll put up the pictures from it because I’m already like 7 picture promises behind. I should have some time this weekend though, but I am not promising.

I guess I haven’t written anything in quite a while. I don’t know though – not much is going on. I am not sad, there are no crisises, no major events, nothing great, nothing horrible, nothing annoying …. it’s all good. The last time I did anything else other than go to work and come home was on Saturday when Bryan and I went to North Park and drove some golf-carts and played mini-golf but got cranky because we were both hungry. Then we went to TGI Friday’s and ate lots of food. On Sunday we walked to the cemetary by my house, which is huge. There are a lot of soldiers buried there and there are a lot of very old graves. It is kind of weird that my house is surrounded by two big cemetaries. Spoooooky huh!

That’s about it, have a super-duper weekend and stuff 🙂
