Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

Hey boys and girls. It's time to give me some recommendations! Get excited.

So, I'll be on an airplane for about 14 hours. Then I'll be chilling on the beaches of Portugal for a week. Then I'll be drinking Sangria in Madrid for the remaining days and then back on a plane for another 14 hours.

Here's what I need from you:

A good knitting project. Something that doesn't require too much of anything, although I am willing to make a blanket because I'd like to have something soft for reading on the couch. I basically need something though that doesn't require me to cut too much, or make me do anything crazy. I don't want to bump into my fellow plane riders too much.

A good book. This is like mandatory. I need something like A Time Traveler's Wife, because I read that and loved it. I really couldn't put it down. And it was 400+ pages. If it's an okay story, I get bored fast. I'll still read it, but by the end I usually have no idea what I just read. So give me your book suggestions. Even if it's about love or nanny's, if you think it fucking rocked the house let me know.

A good podcast. I currently only listen to Keith and the Girl. I also download channel101.com and sometimes NPR. I actually just got a bunch of Driveway Moment cds from the library and put them on my ipod, but if there is anything else you can suggest that's free that would be cool too. This is probably the least important but I'm curious if anyone besides me even listens to podcasts.

I'm about to put Harold and Kumar goes to White Castle on my ipod, and I have 5 other movies too. You'd think I'm leaving for a year, but I know me. I don't have ADD, but I do need lots of things to entertain me because I'm bad about sleeping on planes. I should probably buy one of those lame pillow things. Oh, and cards. Must remember cards. Anyone know good card games I can play solo? I know one. And don't say solitare, because the last time I tried that we had turbulence and it was more like 52 pick up then an actual game.

Alright, that's it. I'm at work and I think I have a meeting soon. So when I come back, I expect those recommdations or else.

Some buds make for an interesting return.

I have about 2 minutes to tell this story.

Last week, I spent Saturday doing my taxes. I went into my taxes folder and took out all the necessary items. In the back of all these important tax papers I found this:


It was instructions on a game I used to play in college to get, well.... high. I remember one time some college friends and myself played for 3 hours, and it's only supposed to be a 45 minute kind of game. Naturally, I didn't do so well in college that year. But it boggles my mind that I would think my "tax" folder would be the perfect place to store instructions for a weed-smoking game.

And with that, enjoy the weekend.

Ya know when you're 5 and someone has a crush on you but you don't like them. And then that 5 year old tells you and then you have to tell them NO, not a chance - but in a nice way. And you think you've resolved the weird situation, but then you have to see him on the school bus everyday and you try your best to be cordial and nice, even though you know you just probably broke his heart. But then this 5 year old just completely ignores you, and goes out of his way to walk slower so he doesn't walk near you and then even walks across the street so that he won't be near you and makes you feel even weirder cause you thought you solved matters, but obviously this 5 year old is acting well... childish.

All better...

So, last night I finally got like 8 hours of sleep. I felt so happy when I woke up at 6am today. It was truly a miracle. RELAX MOM!!!!!

Onto the topic at hand.

Plenty of people get perks at their jobs. Nowadays you almost expect a Christmas bonus or a random early day off if it's slow. But I think out of every job I've had, what I did today was hands down the best perk ever.

I got to go to KEXP (local indie radio station) to see an in-studio performance. Who performed you might ask? Camera Obscura, that's who!!! There I was just sitting in the production room with 2 of my friends, watching the band play 4 songs like they were playing them directly to me. There were about 7 of us in a tiny booth, just swaying back and forth, whispering along to their angelic songs.

Knowing that I'll probably pull another all-nighter today, this was the perfect perk to distract me even for a little while.

i'm really tired....

This last week has been an interesting one. I can't really say much on this blog about it. But it's both good and bad. The good, is I'm 99.9% sure I sold another microsite. This is gonna be huge. I'm doing pretty well at the new job if I do say so myself.

Then there's this other thing which is just some unnecessary stress. But because of this good/bad stress I've been having a heck of a time trying to get sleep. Not even because I'm working more than usual. But I just can't sleep. Almost every night this week, I am in bed by 10 (my normal sleepy time if I'm not going out) but I don't actually sleep until midnight. Then I wake up at 4am. So, that's how it's been this whole week, even on Saturday. This morning I finally got 7 1/2 hours of sleep but I feel pretty fucking drained and kinda out of it - like I want to cry but I can't. It's weird, because I'm happy. I have things going my way. There's that little hiccup, but hopefully it's behind me...

So, when I told the mom this of course she freaked. I always tell myself not to tell her these things. Sometimes it's best just not to tell people things, especially moms - gets me away from too many questions. Because now she's bothering me about doctors and if I'm taking enough iron and blah blah blah blah barf face.

But the kicker, was when she told me that maybe I just need to get laid.
