Random Thoughts Tonight...........

1) I'm loving Britney on Big Brother. To be honest, this hasn't been the greatest season, but it's about to get better with this week's eviction.

2) I really hate to rush time. I like to enjoy the moment. I especially love to spend all of August anticipating my birthday. So, with all that said, I'm trying really hard not to wish for Fall. I'm trying really, really hard to love August and not wish for late September (which is when we usually get the first cool breeze/low humidity day hours.............. and, it's also when the new TV starts).

3) I don't really expect anything special will happen on my birthday, however, I still love it and love anticipating it. Besides, this year has to be better than the news I got last year the day before my birthday which made my actual birthday a little hard to enjoy.

4) My work friend issue has resolved itself and I'm super glad for it. She's on vacation this week and I got this great ecard, today. She sent it last week, but the Internet was apparently wonky and I just got it today. It was so sweet, it almost made me cry. Anyway, I am happy that I have my friend back.

5) I HATE that this is the last week of So You Think You Can Dance. What happened to this season?! It's gone by sooooo fast. I heart Lauren and Kent, so I'm going to have a very difficult time choosing between them.

6) The past several days have been really rainy and cloudy. Downright gloomy. I love it. A lot of people are complaining because they miss the sun, but I'm absolutely fine without it. The temperature has been lower because of all the rain and clouds (like 80s during the day instead of high 90s). I think I'd actually make a great vampire........ or employee at Seattle Grace.

7) My stepdad is currently watching an old western on Encore Westerns. Tuesday nights have sucked this summer for TV. Special thanks to CBS for moving BB to Wednesday night. I much preferred having it on Tuesdays. Keep that in mind next summer, K? Thanks.

8) Work has been super slow over the past few weeks. Today, I was gone at a meeting for an hour and a half........ when I got back I had ZERO voicemails and only two new emails (which were just confirming that they got my emails). Then, I took a long lunch and had ZERO voicemails and ZERO new emails when I got back. I literally didn't know what to do with myself, lol. I'm enjoying this as much as possible. Come September, I will be on overdrive until after the holidays.

9) I'm pretty sure that Marianne and I are cosmic twins. The similarities between the two of us are ridiculous. We've emailed one another multiple times with, "No, seriously, look at my answer to that exact same question. I promise I didn't copy and paste." Today, it went to a whole new level of freakiness, lol. I'm dying for her to come visit, but am a little scared that we'll hate each other in person because we're too much alike.

10) Cows are now running across my TV screen. I should go read a book or something.

11) I'm still pissed that someone stole the giveaway stuff I sent Gina.

12) My friend Meg is about to have a little girl. I'm already trying to predict the name and that she'll be born on October 17th. Could be totally wrong, but what the heck, lol. I just got the invite to her baby shower and I'm SO STINKIN EXCITED. A couple of covert missions led me to her shower gifts and I'm so excited to give them to her. I really, really hope she likes them. I can't post what they are, because my blog posts go directly into her inbox, lol. However, expect a follow-up post after her shower so I can reveal my sneakiness!

13) Several of my Bloggy friends have gone through some very tough times and losses, lately. It seems like it's all been within the past two weeks. I wish I could reach through the computer and hug each of them. I'm praying for you all. Know that.

I agree. I wish I could give some bloggy friends big hugs too! :)

Aimee said...

Yay for your upcoming birthday!! May this year be 10X better than last.

I too like to savor the time and not rush it... But it just goes so fast and then when you make plans it makes you look forward to the future and rush time. Blah

Yay for cooler weather. Here in southern CA it has been really cool lately. Pretty confusing,

Gina said...

I'm still pissed too but I am not giving up yet.

And yay for fixing your friendship. Sometimes that stuff makes friendships even stronger.

1. I feel the same way about the gloominess of rain. I kind of love it.

2. Seriously, it's been heartbreak central around the blogosphere these past two weeks. Even if I wasn't involved in it, I think I'd have noticed it, too. It's all terribly heartbreaking. And your support, hun, means the world.

Marianne said...

You're less sarcastic than I am, so I think our friendship will be just fine :) But yea, we are absolutely twins.

I wanna know what name you're predicting for Meg's wee one!

PS, I thought I had missed your birthday and just about freaked. Then I stalked the book and realized it hasn't happened yet... phew!
