Back from vacation

on October 30, 2007 - 12:02pm

Wow, did I miss this place! Especially watching the coverage of the fires in California. I never missed computer access so much. I finally was able to check in briefly on Sunday and was happy to see good news about Josh's home. But was also saddened to hear about David Foster's studio. How horrible. The whole situation is just devastating. I was also very happy to see how quickly we as fans have jumped in to help out anyway we can. Everyone is so filled with compassion and generosity.

I had a great vacation. Went to Fright Fest at Great America and screamed my heart out on the rides. Got to babysit my girls and also just relaxed at home. Rearranged the furniture for Christmas (so I can put my tree up) and just hung out. What a relaxing time.

Missed you all and am looking forward to another year at FOJG. I can't believe it's going to be 5 years!!

t-minus 4 hours and counting

on October 19, 2007 - 10:30am

Almost vacation. Think anyone would notice if I adjusted the clock?

Just had to share a dream I had last night. I dreamt I was in the studio w/josh just hanging out. Then I made him dinner. It was a little weird. Dunno where that came from. Nice dream tho. It was hard to wake up and get back to reality.

I'll miss you all next week! Don't do anything that I wouldn't do!

Well this week has gone to pot

on October 17, 2007 - 1:10pm

Wow, so do you ever feel like you thought you knew someone and then have one of those "holy crap, I guess I didn't know him/her at all?!" moments. Yeah, so I found out that an old college friend, who I keep in somewhat regular contact with GOT MARRIED ALMOST A YEAR AGO!!!!!!!! and didn't tell me! That and they are expecting?! I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I am surrounded by weddings and babies and none of them are my own (with no prospects in sight either). I realize that i am not the only single girl out there, but I can't remember the last time I dated. Am thinking the earth was still cooling. I know that pagers were still the thing to have and that cell phones were just starting to really take off. sob.

Add that to a particularly curly hair day and it;s a recipe for something fried and chocolate. Must take solace in the fact that both Josh and I share the same hair issues. Yeah, I've sunk to comparing my life to his. sob. Makes me feel worse.......

Sometimes you just do crazy things.

on October 16, 2007 - 2:20pm

I went in for a trim yesterday and spur of the moment chopped off my hair. It's not crazy short, but it's shorter than it's been in years. And I now remember why I have kept it long. Dang curls!! I swear, I always have one errant curl. Every other one curls under, this one curls out! No amount of mousse can tame it,and I've tried. AUGH. the curse of people with curly hair--we want it straight. People with straight hair want it curly. Just can't please ourselves.

So, I saw Elizabeth: The Golden Age. I was a bit disappointed. It felt really choppy and if you didn't know the time period, it would have been confusing. The worst part was that they cut my favorite speech that Elizabeth did. The one at Tillsbury. I won't give it away, but I was let down. Seriously! Cate Blanchett was fanastic and Clive Owen was dead sexy as usual. It wasn't a horrible movie in itself, felt more like a missed opportunity to really shine.
I'm really looking forward to having next week off. Just have to get through this week.

Friday, Friday, Friday

on October 12, 2007 - 1:59pm

TGIF! Man, it's been a LOOONG week. But, I am one week closer to vacation, although this brings me much joy, it is also tinged with sadness and a bit of panic because I will be away from FOJG for 10 days. I am hoping to check in once or twice (depends on schedule allowances).

I am, however, very excited to find out that I get to go to Fright Fest! 12 glorious hours of non-stop roller coaster riding. *does the no rain dance*

My sister officially disowned me because I was listening to Christmas music in October. Her loss, when Josh sings, it isn't just Christmas music, it's simply music. That sounded so much cleverer in my head. I hope you all know what i mean. Sorta meant in the way that even if I was listening to Awake, or Closer, it's like Christmas then too...I should just stop now. No deep thoughts on a Friday, especially 30 minutes before the end of my shift.

Everyone have a safe weekend. Enjoy Noel, resist temptation to put up tree......
