Doesn't it feel like today should be Friday?

So tomorrow is a national day of mourning for Ronald Reagan. I have been really touched watching the coverage of all the people coming to his memorial. I wonder how long it'll be before we have another President who brings people together like that. I was too young to understand at the time, but hearing about his Presidency now, I'm amazed by how much support he had. It would be nice to have that kind of unifying confidence again.

Anyway, I think they might give him a holiday. When I told my boss this, she pointed out, "They didn't make a holiday for Kennedy." To which I replied, "Why not?" I'm all for more holidays. I say we honor every President with his own individual holiday. An extra forty-two days off a year! Woo hoo!

Last night I gave in and went (with Evan in tow) to the Bath & Body Works sale. His verdict on many of the lotions was that they smelled like Robitussin. I got a few things for other people, and for myself, a travel-sized set of Cotton Blossom and a set of Gardenia Lily (they're retiring it, Jessica!). As I checked out, the cashier told me the sale runs through July and there will be more stuff put on sale later. Oh gosh, please don't tell me that. Anyway, I immersed myself in the Gardenia Lily and I smell very nice today, if I do say so myself.

I miss Jen. I had a bizarre dream last night in which I called her to tell her something important, and she informed me I'd called and told her the same thing two hours earlier. Basically I'd been doing and saying all sorts of stuff without my knowledge. It was creepy.

Back to work now.

Someone bought me 6 months of extra userpics!!! Thank you so much, whoever you are. I'm so excited! Maybe my recent fit of icon-switching brought this on? :) Tonight I shall have fun with Photoshop. Woo hoo! Oh, this is my new "shoes" icon, changed for spring. These are my favorite flip-flops ever.

Gosh, I have a lot of stories to tell, so I'll just dive right in. On Friday I got off early- yay! I went to Michaels to buy art for the kitchen wall, which I had been meaning to do before J, J & D visit. I got one of those French pop-arty posters like they have on Friends. Except it's in Italian. Anyway, I like it.:) Then I went to the mall to look for green flip-flops, but became so tired that I forgot what I was there for. So I went home and took a nap. Then Evan and I went to Ryan's, hung out a while, and then we all went to my parents' church. The passion play was very good...they even had live animals! (There were bunnies and I wanted to visit them afterward, but we didn't know where they were keeping them.) Afterward, my dad treated us all to Steak & Shake. It was a nice evening.

Saturday, Kathy (and Daniel) and I went to lunch and a movie with MaryElaine, since her birthday was last week. We saw Ella Enchanted, and like the rest of the friends list, I loved it! Much better than I'd expected. After the movie I went thrifting and bought a few shirts. Later, Evan and I went to dinner and then rented Runaway Jury. It was good, but kind of long.

Easter was great, but also long. The orchestra had to be at church at 7:45 am. We had about half an hour of continuous playing per service, but it went well and I was happy. I like church. For lunch, those of us whose parents were absent/busy had lunch at American Cafe. Then Evan and I went to my parents' so I could be there to start the meal for them. I got to do my laundry, which means I have free time tonight! Yay! Ryan came later, and we feasted and watched the Nick & Jessica variety show, which was also more entertaining then expected. Also, my mom got me a Selah CD as an Easter present, and it's very good.

I just saw a guy who looked like the scary giant from Happy Gilmore. You know, "Guns don't kill people...I kill people." Except he was wearing a suit.

Do you have people on your friends list whom you really think should know each other? I do, so here's a short list of my LJ Friend-ups. In the case of the first pair, I've actually mistaken their entries for each other's several times, so I have long meant to bring them to each other's attention. Maybe it's just their writing style, but still. :) If anyone is new to LJ or just wants more people on their friends list, let me know and I can recommend someone to you. New friends are fun.

Happy 2004, everybody! I'm glad to hear most of you had good New Year's holidays- congratulations to [livejournal.com profile] dakoda on her engagement! Woo hoo! :D

So I just had two days off. On New Year's Eve day I ran some errands, had lunch with Evan near his work, and then visited my sister at her work. She works at a day care during her time at home, so I met the kids in her class. They were sweet, especially a little girl named Mya who climbed right into my lap a minute after meeting me. :) I was glad I went. In the evening Evan, Debs, and I headed up to Millington for Luke and Myla's party. It was pretty fun. We played the new pop culture Trivial Pursuit and watched some of my Friends DVD. We decided to spend the night up there, since everyone else was and it's closer to Evan's work (where he had to be at 7:30 the next morning). The rest of us got up around 10 and had breakfast. Then Debs and I went home. I spent New Year's Day doing housework and taking down the Christmas decorations. I also watched an interesting show about the wives of Henry VIII (am I a nerd or what?). When Evan got off work, I went to his place bearing food, and we ate dinner and relaxed. It was a nice way to start the year. Tonight we might be having a date night, as opposed to our usual sitting around, but I'm not sure what we're going to do.

It's Friday but it feels like Monday. Since last week my schedule has been work two days, off two days. On Monday that will be over. I'll miss it, but my brain will be glad to be back on a normal schedule.

Others have commented on the weird weather. It is, indeed, weird. You heard it here fourth.

My lower back has reached a new level of pain. Every time I think this pull or strain or whatever is going away, it deals me another blow. I think sleeping on Myla's couch aggravated it this time, because by last night I couldn't do much that involved motion. I'm hobbling around like an old lady and yelping every time I bend. I feel like such a whiner, but this just isn't going away. I'll tell myself to bear it like Paul. Maybe a back problem was his "thorn." :)

Okay, hasta luego!

Harry: What does this song mean? My whole life I don't know what this song means. "Should auld acquaintance be forgot." Does that mean we should forget old acquaintances, or does it mean that if we happen to forget them, we should remember them, which is not possible because we already forgot them?

Sally: Well, maybe it just means that we should remember that we forgot them, or something. Anyway, it's about old friends.

I'm off work tomorrow (woo hoo!) so this is my Farewell 2003 post. This was a great year for me. I am blessed to know each of you and have enjoyed sharing in your silliness, happiness, sorrows and deep thoughts this year. I'm glad to have met many of you and become "real-life" friends with you. 2004 is on its way, and I have a feeling it will bring many great things for all of us! :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy Halloween. )

There's a costume contest today at work. I only have a sort-of costume. I'm wearing a headband with big felt flower petals on it, a green shirt, and a khaki skirt. So I'm a sunflower, but not a very sunny one. Evan's having a hard day. My home is messy. Gandalf has his annual shots coming up, so there goes another hundred dollars or so. I'm quickly becoming poor. I don't know how I am going to afford a nice Christmas. I have money saved, but that's supposed to be for The Weddings. Maybe I could do what some of you smart people are doing, and start buying presents now. That way it won't be such a drastic loss.

Tonight Royce is having a massive (as in, like, a hundred people) Halloween party at his house. The Kathy group, the Ryan group, and Evan and I are all going. This alone is cause for celebration- we haven't all been in the same place in about six months. It should be very fun. Tomorrow I'm going with my mom to Nashville, where we will attend Contest of Champions with my sister. This time of year always stirs up band memories for me, so I'm looking forward to some good shows.

Did anyone see that episode of Scrubs where J.D. is speaking Spanish, but he's bad at it, so he says something like "Purple tree bird car"? Evan does that to me all the time. A little while ago he called me and said, "Gatos zapatos." I was like, "Um...cat shoes?" :) He's silly.

Friends was pretty funny last night. Baby Kangaroo Tribbiani! ROTFL.

Okay, it's almost time for the office Halloween party. I plan to enjoy a cupcake (which I will berate myself for eating later). :P :) Have a good weekend and be safe!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] mickey24sync! And happy late Easter to everyone.

I got off work very early on Friday- it was almost like a half-day. I had time to shop for scrapbook supplies and take a walk. Later, Debs and Ryan and I went to the mall so Debs could shop for capri pants. (Ryan was such a trooper. His face revealed his suffering, but he didn't complain once. :)) Then we went to Shakey's (a frozen custard place) and sat in Debra's truck for a long time, eating our Blizzard-like shakeys and talking about the cars and clothing passing by. One girl was wearing a skirt that seemed to be made from a scarf. I liked it, but Ryan insisted that it looked like a pillowcase. For some reason, this was really hilarious.

On Saturday I went to band practice and to the library. (I am queen of the nerds.) Kathy was gone all day, so later I got bored and went to the mall to find an Easter dress. I got a nice, flouncy one for only twelve dollars (due to discounts and a giftcard I'd been hoarding). I also got slightly ill on Diet Vanilla Coke, thus discovering that I cannot use it as a replacement for my elusive favorite, Diet Cherry Coke. I can only find DCC in 20-oz bottles at gas stations, but I know that other cities have it at regular stores! In 2-liters! Kathy suggested ordering it online, but I can't even express how pathetic I would feel doing that. :)

Easter was a nice day, if a little weird. I was nervous about "performing" for the first time in six years. The first service went well, but I hadn't realized how exhausting it would be to play the congregational music, since it was pretty much 10 minutes of continuous playing. Maybe this is why I was sort of lacking in the second service...I was sad about that. But it was church, so it was good. Afterwards I got to meet [livejournal.com profile] admael, who goes to my church, but whom I just met last week through [livejournal.com profile] jessecho. It was nice to talk to her, and it'll be nice to know someone at church besides the remnants of the college/career group. :)

Ryan and I spent the rest of the day at my parents' house, eating a lot of candy and generally being bored. It made me glad that he was willing to hang out and do nothing with me and my family when he could have gone to his girlfriend's house, or something. Being bored together- that's what real friendship is about. :) Around dinnertime, Evan came over, ate two plates of food, then sat around being uncommunicative while Ryan, Debs and I watched a Michael Jackson special, waiting for his nose to fall off. :) Fun times.

When I stopped to think about it, I realized that I can't remember an Easter when it wasn't raining for at least part of the day. Isn't that weird? Especially since it falls on a different date every year.

Even as I type this, I am disgusted with myself because every single one of my Monday entries is about what I did last weekend. I hate to be boring and cliche. But I did a lot of stuff! I want to talk about it! Okay?

My Valentine dinner with sister and co. was fun. I hadn't been to Outback in years, and I hadn't had Bloomin' Onion for many years, so I couldn't stop eating the onion and exclaiming about how good it was. I probably gained five pounds just from that, but what an experience. :) I ended up spending the night at my parents' house. This proved to be wise, because back at the apartment, Kathy had a 5 a.m. roach encounter that would have sent me into a complete panic.

Debs and I went to see How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days the next day. I liked it. We also saw a preview for a new Mandy Moore movie, which I am now anxious to see. Afterward, I went back to the apartment for my Girls' Night Out with Kathy. We had invited many girls, but no one could come, so we went to Pizza Cafe by ourselves. I was glad to have some girl time with her. :) We went back to the apartment and watched Notting Hill while doing our nails. Suddenly MaryElaine & Royce called, asking us to go to a late showing of Daredevil with them, so we happily accepted. It was like old times. :) I decided I liked Spider-Man better, though.

You know your nails are too long when they start impairing your typing. :P They look so nice, though!

I went to my new dentist this morning for a cleaning. I already like her, because she didn't recommend that I have my wisdom teeth removed! Yaaay! None of my wisdom teeth have come in or given me any problems, yet I've been dodging oral surgeon referrals for years. This may be because my mouth is about the size of a peanut. As a child, I had to have permanent teeth taken out because there just wasn't room for them. I guess this makes dentists nervous. :P Anyway, I am glad to have clean teeth, and a reprieve.

I'm going to watch the Big Game at my parents' house tonight. They have invited a lot of people, so it should be fun. Em and Ryan (and probably Evan) are coming, too. I just talked to my mom, and she said they've pulled all the Hurricanes stuff out of the guest room and hung it in the living room. Apparently a few Ohio State fans are coming. They shall not pass. :)

It's interesting how people take such different approaches to holidays and big events. I like Tradition. I like making a big deal out of things. I think people should hug and kiss at midnight on New Year's, and wear green on St. Patrick's Day, and have birthday parties. To me, those times are special. They're an excuse to have fun. But some people are like, "Big deal. Who cares? It's just another day." I don't understand that at all.

I know a lot of us have taken the Myers-Briggs test, but have any of you read Personality Plus? It's easier to understand than Myers-Briggs, and you can clearly see yourselves and your friends in it. (I'm completely Perfect Melancholy, Kathy and Ryan are both Popular Sanguine, Em is Powerful Choleric, and Evan is so Peaceful Phlegmatic, he might not notice if his head fell off. :)) Anyway, I recommend it if you like personality stuff.

I am so ready to get out of here. :)

Happy New Year!

My New Year's Eve was fun and not as stressful as I had anticipated. Evan, Ryan, and I ate turkey and had a good time at my parents' house. While the guys talked with my dad about guns and other Man Stuff, my mother and I tried to put festive hats on Bun. He was not cooperative. :) At about 9, we left for Luke and Myla's. We decided to go together in my car. (They regretted this fairly quickly, since in the spirit of the evening I forced them to listen to "Will2K" by Will Smith.) The driving kind of stressed me out, because it was dark and rainy, but Ryan had written directions on a napkin so we wouldn't get lost. As we pulled into the driveway, he blew his nose and threw the (I thought) tissue out the window. I asked if he felt okay. He replied, "We didn't need those directions anymore anyway." What a nut. :)

At Luke and Myla's we all hung around in the kitchen for a while. Luke had far too much fun with the hors d'ouerves. Then they and their friends, who are all very musical, performed original songs for us. (Jessica, I thought of you. You would have had a blast.) Sadly, midnight was not a big deal. There was no toasting or hugging or anything. Sigh. After midnight we played a very casual round of Friends trivia. I was proud, because we were talking about favorite episodes and Evan actually had one. I have finally converted him! :) We pulled out the Best Of videos, but after just one episode, the guys and I decided to leave. I ended up getting home at 4:15. I thought I was hallucinating, because my psycho across-the-hall neighbor was not only awake, but she was also dumping buckets of water out her window. ??? Anyway, it was a fun night.
