New car smell

on May 8, 2008 - 12:28pm

I got a new car yesterday!! A 2008 Saturn Aura
Whoo hoo!! And it has XM radio, so.....if anyone knows what stations play Josh on XM, let me know. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the new buttons to play with.

Course, you know that I had to christen it with Awake Live, which just happened to show up in the mail the same day I got my new car. Fate. I think so.

Busy little bee

on May 4, 2008 - 9:35am

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've posted. But I can tell you, it's honestly because my job has kept me far far away from my computer. Our library is moving to a temp space while we remodel and we have to condense from 47,000sq ft to 14,000sq ft. I think I may go bald from all the stress. I got to my computer long enough each day to quickly check here, (and order Awake and the bracelet naturally), but really haven't had the time to really go through the threads. So, I'm spending a little quality time with my computer this morning.

As we gear up for this move, the only thing keeping me somewhat grounded is Josh's appearances. How great was Letterman!! I was super impressed. Defnitely looking forward to more coming up soon!!
Other major events? Does cutting one's hair count? It does for me! I often hide behind my hair and I totally chopped it off. It's super curly now and apparently is "perky." Which is kinda funny, cause I really don't do perky.
Not much else going on...bought my dad Jersey Boys tix for his 60th, and am going to see Joshua Bell in July. Thank you, DuPage Library System for the free lawn seats!! I think I may see some Grobies there, so looking forward to that as well.

Probably should start wrapping this up as I have to get back to setting books to storage, which, let me tell you is about as exciting as watching the grass grow. Only 2 more days to Awake Live! yes!

Another sign I might need a 12 step program

on April 7, 2008 - 1:45pm

Quick little entry today. Had to get new glasses over the weekend and picked out 2 new pair. One of which looks amazingly like a pair Josh had a few years back. The black solid frames. I didn't realize it until I tried them on today at the store (am blind w/o glasses, so trying them on before hand is always fun). I had one of those "where have I seen these" moments and then it dawned on me. Sure nuff, I checked my photo library and there they were. Yep, another sign I may need a little Josh rehab. Not that I plan on going mind you.....

Gorgeous Day

on April 6, 2008 - 9:25am

And I'm stuck inside. Oh well. C'est la vie. I have to make this entry short, but wanted to document a funny Groban moment. I'm driving in the car with my sister and they're discussing Josh on the radio. Not ripping on him, but talking about how many groupies he has (to which I mumbled "we're grobies, not groupies." And then the DJ goes, "hey, have you ever noticed that alot of librarians seem to really like this guy?" which wouldn't be all that funny, except for the fact that I am a librarian. My sister practically howled with laughter and so did I--at the irony and all. Oh well, what can I say, Librarians have great taste!! I mean, didn't Evie get Rick in the Mummy movies? LOL

Reunited! New Kids on The Block

on April 3, 2008 - 1:08pm

Wow, so in a fit of nostalgia brought on by the news that my fav boy band is back together for a reunion tour I have brought out the old CD's that I kept hidden in tbe back of my CD shelves. Listening to the music now makes me kinda giggle, especially since I'm so spoiled by a certain curly-haired extremely talented vocalist....but it does bring back memories.

When I found out this morning, my 12 year old self wanted to jump up and down in pure glee....unfortunately my 31 year old knee that I seriously tweaked on Monday chose to remind me with a stabbing pain that I just can't do that right now.

All in all, it's been a fun week. Ordering Awake Live, finding out my teen crushes are back together (if only for awhile) and the pain medication = one fun ride! Looking forward to seeing what next week holds in store.........
