Weekend

Tuesday, May 31st, 2005

How sad it is to be sitting at my desk at work again after such a weekend! Memorial Day weekend was lovely. I accomplished absolutely nothing, and I feel wonderful for it. A terribly long description of my nice weekend follows: On Saturday, the Husband and I went out in search of the elusive General […]

Serenity!

Friday, May 27th, 2005

I attended the Serenity pre-screening last night in Tempe, thanks to my sister and her friend David, who managed to snag five tickets. We all had a jolly time standing outside in line, meeting nice people, and gathering our free goodies from Universal. (A poster AND a keychain! Whee!) Everybody cheered when the doors were […]

Jack Bauer is Dead! Long Live Jack Bauer!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

24 is over for the season! Whatever shall I do!! Thankfully, Fox has renewed the show for two more seasons, which shows uncommon good sense on their part. But how can I live until January?? I don’t think this season was as good as previous ones, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. I was glad to […]

General Grievous Week!

Monday, May 23rd, 2005

In appreciation of my favorite villain from Episode III, this is officially General Grievous Week! That’s right, this week is dedicated to our many-sabered foe from the film that looks like a Praying Mantis wearing a hockey mask! And a cape! To celebrate, Irislit is hosting a week-long look at General Grievous’ diary. Have a […]

Thursday is the New Friday

Thursday, May 19th, 2005

Well, not quite, but it wasn’t a bad day. I have a fuzzy Chewbacca toy that I gottoday with my Burger King kid’s meal. It’s very cute and I am all a-squeal over it. Lunch has never been so fun. CSI finale was tonight, and I missed the first hour. Daaaam. What I saw was… […]

Mood Swings

Wednesday, May 18th, 2005

Damn. It’s amazing how fast my mood can make a big-ass pendulum swing from good to rotten. I have been relatively laid-back today, but one co-worker comes in with a problem and BAM, bitch-mode kicks in. I was snippy with her. I admit it. There was a problem with the data entry she brought me. […]

My Own Horn

Wednesday, May 18th, 2005

It’s amazing what a difference just a few little days makes, doesn’t it? This time last week I was trying to ignore my history final and feeling depressed about work. Now I’ve graduated, got an A in that class, and may have an opportunity at work to advance. I’ve also lost 29 pounds. Feel free […]

Wherein We Lose Our Souls to the Big Box Stores

Monday, May 16th, 2005

Ah, me. There really is a certain amount of comfort to excess, isn’t there? Nothing more comforting than to know that your needs and wants are provided for many times over again. And at a reasonable price. I think this is why those warehouse-barn stores are so popular. The “Big Box”-type stores have come under […]

Gradumification

Friday, May 13th, 2005

Yep. All graduated. The ceremony was nice. It took two hours, which I felt severely cut into my drinking time, but, okay. Michael Crow was a little… unfocused as a speaker. It didn’t seem like conferring degrees was really his bag of tea. I loved his bling chain of office, however. I also had to […]

Randomage

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

Yo. Just a random assortment of links and other amusements. From the Phoenix sports world: The Coyotes are offering Wayne Gretzky the head coaching position. Unfettered optimism at its best, kiddies. They actually think the NHL will play hockey again. Next they’ll be telling us the Easter Bunny and good viola players are real. From, […]
