How's this for a Thursday surprise?

on September 13, 2007 - 7:55pm

My boyfriend and I exchanged anniversary gifts tonight.
I adopted a monkey for him (they sent him a picture and adoption certificate, but the monkey itself is still in the jungle).
He gave me an engagement ring.
He asked me to marry him.
I said yes.
I can't believe this is happening.
I've wanted this so long.

More to look forward to

on September 12, 2007 - 7:05pm

My big thing about PCD is that after the concerts are over, I feel like I have nothing to look forward to anymore. But that is certainly not true of the next month or so. Let's see...
In two weeks, the new season of House starts. I can never decide whether to laugh, be outraged on behalf of whoever he's insulting, or think, "He's got a point...", but that's part of the fun of that show.
Two weeks after that, Noel comes out. If things go the way I want them to that day, I could be listening in the car on the way to a Springsteen concert in Jersey (big deal, to say the least).
About a week later, I'm going to see Young Frankenstein on Broadway. The movie's hilarious, and I can only imagine what they decided to turn into musical numbers.
And then there's that business trip in November, but I've learned my lesson from the last time. This one's in Orlando, so I'm thinking of taking my guy with me a day early for some fun on our own before I have to work.

Yes, there's a lot to look forward to in life, a lot to count down to. But there's also some stuff that I think is going to happen but don't know a definite date to. My anniversary present is in the mail, and I have no idea when it's going to come. I also hope Josh comes back to New York (any day but November 3-7) this fall, but nothing's been announced yet. This waiting for unknown dates is a very strange feeling.

VMA Commentary

on September 10, 2007 - 7:53pm

First of all, I want to make it clear that I didn't actually watch the VMAs last night. I was too tired from the trip, and it felt below my dignity. But there was no escaping the coverage today, and it's made me SO glad to be a Grobanite. I'm not going to name names, but it may be obvious who's made me think some of these thoughts:
I know that Josh rehearses, puts a lot of time and thought into his shows, and takes care of himself beforehand. Every time I have ever seen him, I am under the impression that there is nowhere else he would rather be. He has looked happy and engaged, and given 100% of the best of himself.
I have never read anything about him starting a fight, forgetting how to get dressed for an event, or generally acting like being famous is an excuse for being a buffoon.
And I want to thank Josh myself for being so mature, classy, and dignified under all circumstances. I know he's said, "A lot of my fans think I'm four years old", but he doesn't act like it.

Happy again

on September 8, 2007 - 1:51pm

I've sounded like such a downer lately, but this European conference and the travel involved really stressed me out. I was the only person from my department there, and there was a lot for me to do.
But now I'm back home and couldn't be happier about it. I'm not worried about this event anymore, I'm not exhausted; and best of all, I got my two favorite guys back. I listened to "America" on the ride back to my boyfriend's place.

Happy Labor Day to me

on September 3, 2007 - 10:46am

It's true that I don't have to go to the office today, but work is still managing to drive me insane. I have to leave on a business trip to London tomorrow...that they only told me about two weeks in advance. I'll be doing things that I've only seen people do and heard them talk about, but not actually done myself. I've been overwhelmed, stressed, angry, ready to snap, and not allowed to show it at work. I can only show it at home by taking things out on the people I love the most. I hate to do that.
I'm also really sad that I have to leave my guy for most of the week, just missing being away on our anniversary. We went to London together on a semester abroad, and figured the next time we'd go would be on our honeymoon. Now this trip is butting in, and it's too expensive for us both to go (my flight alone was $1500), so we're both really sad.
And to top it all off, I'm not listening to Josh again until I get back. If my first favorite guy can't come with me, neither shall my second.
