After a MONTH of no contact at all from Eharmony Boy, he texted me last night.

Boys are strange.

Infomercials....for President?

Thoughts on tonight's Obama infomercial?

Seemed cheesy to me and to came too late in the game. 6 days till the end I doubt there are many undecideds left. If you are going to spend $1 Million Dollars to EACH of 7 networks do it early and make it count.

Won't spoil it for my fellow Tivo-ers, but OMG OMG OMG to the last 5 minutes.

Oh the unfairness now of having to wait TWO fully weeks until the next episode!

Stupid election.

The 7th Day

Could someone PLEASE tell me why Sundays are so short???

Anyone know of any job anywhere in the world that is open? I'll do anything. I'm cheap. I'm smart. I come to work on time, don't text or make personal calls during work hours and can work with ANY personality type. I can spell and speak coherently. I have no ego and will literally do ANYTHING.

Last night I attended the Nokia Work/Life balance event at the Nokia Flagship store here in NY. Thanks to my friend Wendy at it was a good night of playing with some new technology, listening to a professional organizer talk about seeking balance in life and creating rigid boundaries and cocktails.

I DEFINITELY need to create some balance in my life between work and play. I'm going to start by NOT checking my email in the morning at home and instead only read it on the train. That's a better use of my time and allows me to ease into the day and focus on myself in the morning.

How do YOU create balance in your own lives?

Blue...well maybe blue-green

My sister is engaged again. 22 years old and has found TWO men in this
world that that want to marry her.

(Time #1 was mutually called off by her and her ex, they just both
realized it wasn't right for them)

She's had more engagement rings than I've had dates.

I did a major house clean this weekend and now as I sit in my sparkly

I'm afraid to do ANYTHING. I sit on the couch freezing because I don't
want to unfold the blanket. I used the bathroom when I was at
Starbucks so I wouldn't have to dirty mine. I'm STARVING because I
don't want to cook anything.

I just want to relish in the cleanliness for as long as possible.

I'm going to have to start eating out at least though....I'm so hungry
I'm ready to take hostages, except well, you know, they'd just dirty
the place up.

Do you ever....

meet people, or maybe just read their blogs and think..that is who I want to be....that is the way I want to respond to the world, but I haven't been because I've chosen to lead a life dictated by pain?

I did today and it's made me think.

What? It's FRIDAY?? Already?

Where on earth did this week go? I'm insanely busy at work, I've worked until 2am now for the past few days and I'm beat and let's not even get started on the state of my house right now. My poor Tivo is nearly full and those debates that were a few days ago....still unwatched. UGH.

This weekend will be spent catching up, on the news, on the cleaning, on twitter and on Tivo.

Catching up is a full time job.

Drastic...Attempt #2

I'm still considering making a drastic hair change and came across this pic. I'm thinking of doing this cut and the color. Thoughts?

My Mastercard Commercial

Gin to get drunk with after getting heart broken by yet another shitty man: $24.00

Hair dye bought to give self dramatic makeover after said heart break: $9.99

Realizing you were so drunk when you did this that you dyed your hair the EXACT same color it has always been: Priceless.

It astounds me that in a company of 50 employees, every single one of
them is ignoring the fact that EVERY single light is out in the copy
room so we all just stand in there in total darkness making our

It's been THREE DAYS now.

Putting Myself Out There

I told a boy I liked him yesterday. (and yes I'm still technically
dating eharmony boy...but I'm ignoring that fact for now).

I got the response I pretty much thought I would you too,
really enjoy our friendship...not sure I can get over the distance (he
lives in California) blah blah blah.

I thought just getting it out there would make me feel better and I
think eventually it will, but for now I just feel....bleah.

Wherein I Realize I've Been Watching Too Much News

I was going through my spam folder today and couldn't figure out why I was getting emails offering to enlarge my "election".

November 4 can't come soon enough.

Aren't They Trained NOT to do that??

I'm walking through Grand Central this morning and see a couple of police officers with their drug/bomb whatever sniffing dogs (German Shepards). A few steps later I passed a woman carrying a TINY white dog. A few steps after that I heard LOUD repetitive barking from the big dogs. Either the woman was also packing a bomb and/or drugs or else the German Shepards need to go back to training school!

Can't take the dog out of the dog I guess!

Let's Play a Game Answers

Nobody got it right!!!

1. Every night I wake up at least twice to check my email. - Sadly this is true....sometimes I'm up MORE than twice. I'm not a good sleeper at all.

2. I have never done any illegal drugs and didn't drink before I was 21. - True!

3. I have issues with telling people I love them and say "I know" every time anyone tells me they love me. - Also true....I'm a commitment phobe to the 'enth degree...I'm working on it.

4. My favorite comfort food is this dish my parents make consisting of yellow mustard peach jam and soy hot dogs. - Also true! This was a recipie from my late grandmother (well she used REAL meat, not soy obviously) and it's a staple in our house. It sounds gross, but the sweet and sour nature of it all comes together into tasty goodness!

5. I once was seated on a plane next to Nate Berkus, Oprah's decorator. -True! It was bound to happen with all the times I fly between NY and Chicago

6. I was very nearly on a reality TV show but the show never aired. -A few years ago they were making one about work, but it never came to fruition (thankfully!)

7. I once stood up a blind date because I saw him through the window and he wasn't cute so I just left without going inside the restaurant. YOU GUYS!!! This one isn't true! I would NEVER do this to someone!!!!!!!

Thanks to everyone who guessed! This was fun!
