Category please and thank you

So, a whole workday kind of slipped by.

Coworker sent me a link to this today (click here), and then I sat and watched all of the episodes, and I love her.

At first, I was super weirded out by her, but after you get the hang of it (the show is her impersonating everyone in her life), she’s effing hilarious. It’s just ridiculous – she has the Minnesota voices down so well.

In episode 2, she mentions the fact that she gave herself a “party perm.” Love her. LOVE.

There’s 17 episodes. Watch them all.

I.F.H. Mondays

This blog title is brought to you by the following skit by one of my favorite comedians – Nick Swardson.

(Oh yeah – unless you have headphones, it’s NSFW.)

So anyway – not much to report from the weekend. We went to see The Orphanage Friday night – VERY VERY good. Pretty scary. Saturday, uh….I sent back my plethora of dresses to VS and Bluefly, and then went grocery shopping. Hung out and tried to ignore the drumming and loud music being played by the husband and his friends (they were actually quite courteous and I actually got to sleep around midnight). Yesterday, we didn’t do much either, although we DID get the Christmas tree taken down, finally. NOW my house feels normal. I’ll start taking new photos of the inside soon. I know you’re all (all three of you) are dying to see what it looks like.

So, yeah. Uneventful weekend, but that’s good. I have a lot of packing in front of me this week. We leave on Sunday! Woo hoo!!

And the winner is…

This was the winner. The light pink one didn’t fit me very well. Husband seemed to like this one the best and since I STILL have yet to install any sort of full length mirror, I have to take his word for it. :) Now – the daunting task of sending back the other ones.

I have a little visit to the, eh – wax technician this afternoon in preparation for Costa Rica. And I forgot to bring my ibuprofen buffer to take beforehand. This will be fun.

Other than having hot wax placed dangerously close to my genitals, this weekend seems to have little or nothing to do – which is fine by me. I can get some packing and more preparation done for the trip. Luckily I got all my work done last night, so I won’t need to work over the weekend – but I might bring the pc laptop home so I can practice some Spanish via the Rosetta Stone CD L burned for me.

Aside from apparently forgetting to set the alarm clock last night…

Oh my god, it’s 7:30!

Husband: WHAT?

Me: It’s 7:30! Wait, what day is it? Friday? Friday, right? Crap! What the hell!

Husband: What?

Me:I swear I turned on the alarm! Get in the shower! Crap! What the hell!?

…it’s been an uneventful day, to say the least. Alright, I have to get some work done before I board the bikini wax bus.

Ever feel like you’re drowning?

Category not so much

I’m sitting at work thisclose to a panic attack. I have 3 weeks of work to get done in 1.5 weeks. I’ve already divvied out enough work to my coworkers and yet I’m still busy.

Then little fires pop up, and I have to scramble to put them out. Then I start over thinking projects and can’t wrap my mind around how to complete them and how I do things. Heart starts racing, mind is racing – cue panic attack.

Someone told me about an hour ago that I have work I have to do next Thursday night at 8pm for a launch, and I don’t know what they’re talking about. I told them to just tell me what I needed to do and I’d do it…and they weren’t sure.

On top of work, I have a little over a week before we leave for Costa Rica and I have so much crap to do, both in and out of work, that I’m not even excited anymore. I’m scared of what I’ll have to face after I’ve been gone from work for a week.

I’m just completely overwhelmed.

On a side note, this is my 100th post on this blog. (insert champagne and fireworks here.)

Add two more.

Thanks Martini. :) Now I have more on my credit card.

I just ordered these two from bluefly. The pink one is BCBG and the purple one is Design Theory.
