The three-hundred-and-eighth to three-hundred-and eleventh days combined...

Sunday, January 31, 2010 8
This weekend went by entirely took quickly. My man and I saw Book of Eli on Friday. It was okay, but either it really dragged at times or I was ridiculously tired (I think it was a combo of both) because it seemed like it went on forever. They jammed about 4.5 hours worth of movie into those 2 hours.

My parents and I took my sisters back to college yesterday, so Saturday flew by. It was freezing in Scranton yesterday.


I was wearing so many layers - including double layered gloves - and my teeth were still chattering every time I stepped outside.


We, of course, went to Quaker Steak and Lube for lunch. Yea, wings :)

Today was all about school work. I feel just as tired now as I did on Friday. I really hope the week goes by quickly and uneventfully - I'm already looking forward to next weekend :)

Have a great night everyone!

The two-hundred-and-ninety-eighth to three-hundred-and-seventh days combined...

Hello. How are you? How've you been? It's been an age since I've seen you last :)

The last couple of weeks have been pretty crappy for me unfortunately. All varieties of things ranging from work issues, to crappy doctor news, to horrible back pain - it's been a trip. My back has been killing me all week. It started as a twinge in my left side and has grown steadily since Monday :( Sucks.

I am one of the lucky ones that has an office at work. It is quite the blessing to be able to close the door and take a breath sometimes, but the sentiment is pretty much the same.

And then, my dad decides to scare me by telling me about how he accidentally dropped hi glasses onto the tracks while waiting for the train on morning. Now, anyone who has travelled on the NYC Subway has seen the signs that tell all strap hangers "No matter what situation arises, keep off the tracks. Tracks contain 600 volts of live electricity. If you drop something on the tracks, go to the station booth and tell the agent." Did my dad keep of the tracks? Of course not. Of course he jumped down and retrieved his glasses only to find that...train platforms are A LOT higher than you think they are. My dad's not a short guy, and the platform reached his neck. Another guy tried to help him up, but eventually he just had to walk to the end of the platform and take the stairs back up. I freaked out a bit when he told me. "600 volts of live electricity"? Enormous trains? I just told him to 'please let the glasses be' next time.

I hope you are all having a better week than me :) Have a great night everyone - I'm off to find a heating pad.

The two-hundred-and-ninetieth to two-hundred-and-ninety-seventh days combined...

Oh, Hollywood award season...I love when you come around. True I may be guilty of muting one or two (or all, depending on the show) of the acceptance speeches, but I do enjoy the pomp and circumstance of it all :) Tonight I watched the Golden Globes (in between doing school work, of course) and on Saturday I'll be watching the Screen Actors Guild Awards :)

It's nice to see actors, writers, directors, etc. celebrating their work. Now if only there were award shows for all jobs :) Best Filer? Best Attendance? Fastest Typist? I feel that the ratings for that show would be really low :)

Here are some quotes that I've seen lately - including a new Train of Thought (yea!). Enjoy!

Anyway, time to get back to the books. Have a great night everyone!

The two-hundred-and-and-eighty-sixth through two-hundred-and-ninetieth days combined...Ride 'em cowboy!

Work has been killing me since the year started. I had hoped that a lot of the 2009 tension and office politics would be left behind in the old year, but I was being naive. Things have gotten so much worse in such a short time period that I pretty much just want to keep my door closed all day to avoid all the pettiness and back-biting. Too bad I can't - we've already been talked to about having doors closed for too long.

I practically flew out of there at 5:30 on Friday, not just because I had that bull riding event to go to, but because people are now waiting until lunch breaks and after hours to try and chat people up to find allies and clique members - and I'm not having any part of it. Leave me out of that silly drama please.

The event was amazing though. The group of us headed over to pick up our tickets and then grabbed a quick dinner at a nearby sports bar before heading inside. The place was packed! I didn't know that professional bull riding was so popular, but it was great :) People had traveled from all over to attend. A little girl who was picked as 'best dressed fan', and her family, had come to NY from Kansas just to watch the invitationals. It was a great start to the weekend and my man and I had a great time :) Enjoy some pics!

A wall of great moments from The Garden

Singing the National Anthem

It was packed!
So how did the weekend treat all of you?
Have a wonderful night everyone!

A whole lotta days combined...Happy New Year Everyone (a little belated, of course)!

Happy New Year everyone!

I cannot believe that it's 2010 already :) Sorry for being out of touch for quite a while, but I decided to try and stay away from the computer for a bit during the holidays - true much of that decision stemmed from the fact that I was sleeping like it was my job. It was wonderful :) A week and a half off from work filled with family, friends, food, presents and sleep = Lovely. My New Year was pretty mellow and amazing. How about all of you? Any fun parties? Was anyone actually in Times Square for the ball drop?

I snapped this pic as I stepped out of the house one night last week to run an errand. I prefer to think of the plane as an early evening shooting star :)

I have already seen two movies in 2010 - off to a great start. I saw Sherlock Holmes and Avatar. I enjoyed both of them, though Sherlock is in the lead. I just thought the Holmes/Watson relationship was adorable and hilarious. I feel like I was laughing at things in Avatar that weren't supposed to be funny, but I still found it enjoyable. If any of you have seen either film, what did you think?

Anyway, yesterday was back to work, and I'm already exhausted. I fell asleep at like 10:30 last night. I made sure to force myself to stay awake to watch my two hours of Heroes (love that show), but after that I was done. It'll probably take me the rest of this week to adjust to being at work again. Then next week I am flexing so that I can have Tuesday off so I'll be working extra long hours the rest of that week. Joy.

It was cool to see that I'm today's Featured Punkysite. It made my morning a bit brighter.

I love the Punkymoods icons :)

Well, back to work for me. I just have to keep in mind that it's already Tuesday. Only three more days (after this one) until the wonderful weekend - and on Friday night my man and I, accompanied by P and L, are going to the 2010 Professional Bull Riders Madison Square Garden Invitational :) I've never been to anything like it before but, thanks to Goldstar's discount tix, I'm going now! Should be interesting - hopefully even fun.

Happy New Year again everyone! Here's to an amazing, happy, healthy, safe and prosperous 2010 :)
