Glad to know I am not totally nuts

on October 11, 2007 - 1:35pm

First off, congrats Josh on Noel being the #1 seller this week!! I hope that it stays that way for a long time! If we Grobies had anything to do with it, you know it would!!

I finally got to see the DVD for Noel yesterday. Thorougly enjoyed it. Laughed out loud many times! I think my fav portion had to be the London section. Between seeing Abbey Road again and then realizing that I wasn't totally nuts thinking I heard echoes of "Greensleeves" in "What Child Is This." Whenever that tracks starts, I keep wanting to break into the opening lines to Greensleeves. Dunno why I didn't pick up on the fact that What Child was written to the tune of Greensleeves. Guess sometimes my brain just forgets. Bad former band geek.

Went to Bunco last night and won enough for dinner and a movie Sunday. Yeah! I'm really looking forward to seeing Elizabeth: The Golden Age. I know the chronology is going to be off, but I like Cate Blanchett and she really knows how to deliver some of those lines!

The wait is over

on October 9, 2007 - 12:50pm

After getting hung up on from a very rude Target Employee last night, I expected trouble this morning. I was pleasantly suprised to see several copies on the shelf and clutched it like someone was going to rip it from my hands. It's killing me to know I have the DVD and can't watch it. I mean, I could at work, but the DVDs always skip in my player and I want full-on no skipping.

Thank you again Josh for another amazing album. Christmas will be year round from now on. I can't wait to share this with everyone I know.

Less than 24 hours now

on October 8, 2007 - 2:15pm

I'm finally back at work after a grueling bout with a sinus infection. There were moments there I felt my head would actually explode.
I should say I was back at work this weekend. I came in to do some backup cataloging of the CD's and DVD's that had piled up, and what do I discover... Oh yes, I think you know. Christmas came early....earlier than October 9th that is.
All I can say is that all expectations this Grobanite had have been met and surpassed. Thank you Josh for sharing your voice once again with us. If I ever doubt the hand of God, all I have to do is listen to Ave Maria, Silent Night or really any other song and know that it is indeed present.

Now, if I can only just stop humming Christmas music, people are beginning to look at me oddly. Well, more oddly than normal!

Bad night

on October 2, 2007 - 2:12pm

All the stress caught up with me last night. Had a major anxiety attack for the first time in 5 years. Even Josh didn't help. Maybe I waited too long to listen to him, but I couldn't exactly do that at work last night. They frown on loud music in the library (at least from the staff).

I think the final straw came when I found out my sister had tickets to see Maroon 5 (along w/bsp) and never told me. She knows I like them alot and we had even talked about going to see them the next time they toured. We both agreed that right now we just couldn't rationalize it $$ wise. So then my brother wins the tickets, gives them to HER (he doesn't know I like them, I think he still thinks I only listen to New Kids). It's not about the tickets really, more the principle of the thing. She knew I liked them, had the tickets Saturday and didn't even give me a chance to get the night off of work.

Take that, add it to $$ woes, stir in the fact that my aunt tells me on Sunday that she didn't want to be bothered getting me a souvenier from London. Let brew and watch Jill dissolve into a sobbing mess in the parking lot.

For the record,I didn't ask for anything extravagent, just a small bag of Thornton's toffee and maybe a keychain or something). Didn't want to be bothered? I brought her the Wedgewood she asked for when I went--WTF???? I took time out of my trip. What the hell?!? I know that there are alot of people who's lives are much worse than mine, and I sound kinda petty, but I'm just asking for a little respect/appreciation? Is that so wrong?

I kinda feel like I try & bend over backwards to be nice to people in an age where that seems to be going out the window, and all I get is a karmic kick in the ass.

Sorry to rant, but I just don't have anyone to talk to anymore. I feel like you guys will forgive pretty much anything. I think I may have to give myself up for adoption on Ebay, see what I get. It's gotta be better than a family who must just see a giant blob with the words "please, use me up and spit me out" tattooed on my forehead.

Grr. I think it's going to be a bottle of wine night. Oh god, now their playing "Lonely, I'm so lonely" at work.....sob.

Monday Monday

on October 1, 2007 - 11:44am

Whew, what a busy weekend. Thank god I am back to work to relax! LOL. I think I was home only long enough to change, eat and sleep this weekend. I suppose that's good. I woke up at the stroke of midnight last night and said to myself "happy october, only 8 days until Noel" and went back to bed. I think. It could have been a dream.

Speaking of Noel, I came into work today and got my mail from the weekend. Amongst all the "fyi" notes was my weekly music catalog from one of our suppliers. Guess who's big brown eyes were smiling up at me? Oh yeah! This is a quote from the ad: "...Josh's Groban's majestic yet intimate voice...." Sigh. I can't wait.
Question of the day? Which pic to put up in my cubicle? The catalog cover or the one on the inside?
Answer: Both!!
