"I want to fall apart slower than anyone!"

On the bus ride home yesterday, I overheard an older woman conversing with someone. "I want to live to 130. Maybe longer!" Until this point, I had never realized the importance of one's lower teeth. As this woman spoke, her tongue kept rolling right out of her mouth. I had to wonder if this was a result of her missing lower teeth, or just lack of interest in controlling her tongue.

Oh, there you are!

Not sure how huge my fan base has become, since no one has left comments, but for those of you that missed me, sorry I couldn't post this weekend. For the time being, I have to post at work, since I don't have internet access at home. Normally I would be at work on Saturday, but I needed a mental health day, otherwise known as: I had a "migraine".

So, it's out...I work on Saturdays. The great thing about Saturdays is that while I'm getting ready for work in the morning, Matt and I have really interesting conversations. Fortunately I'm aware enough of my surroundings at that hour to appreciate them. I think Matt is too tired to realize what he's saying sometimes. For example:

Him: What do you want to do tonight?
Me: I don't know, what do you want to do?
Him: We should do something nice.
Me: What do you mean, "something nice"?
Him: You know, just something nice.
Me: (trying to get more clarification) Well, we always do nice things.
Him: Okay, then lets do something bad!

Damn you, Tetris! Damn you to hell!

TGIF: This is not my life.

I once read or heard someone say that we're only making ourselves age faster when we constantly look forward to the weekend. So what does that say for those of us who simply look forward to going home and drinking a beer at the end of each day? My guess is that we're making ourselves age, and get fat faster.

So, girly night wasn't so bad. I'm now the proud owner of a little pink purse. My new purse is so cute! It even has a little matching coin purse! I still stand by my previous statement, however. I am not girly! It was the wine, I swear. The wine made me do it.

All of the ladies at girls night were so excited about my new purchase. "Oh, it's the perfect size for some cash and your lipstick!". Um, try chapstick, honey. My purse comes with two strap options. There's the short, "carry your purse in your hand" type strap, and then there's the "over the shoulder" variety. In my opinion, the best part about my new purse is that the smaller strap is the perfect length to be a little pink collar! Y'know what's frightening? I can totally picture the pink collar, with the purse, and some matching pink strappy heels. Not girly at all...right.

Accomplished by lunch!

1. I arrived at the office on time, regardless of the fact that all of my clocks were blinking when I woke up. I'm not sure what caused the outage - it's just a normal overcast day in Seattle.

As stated in, pretentious can be defined as "exaggerated importance". Am I the only one who finds "the office" pretentious sounding? I mean, who says that, anyway???

2. I have read all of my online news sources, including The Seattle Times, CNN, Netscape, Eonline and The Stranger.

US flight training exercises are scheduled for today. The drills will involve fighter planes and other aircraft flying at low altitudes throughout the day. I guess they wanted to let us know so that we wouldn't start ducking under bushes, which, as one of my friends recently stated, "totally works".

3. I have managed to avoid playing tetris or solitaire.

Work is pretty slow these days, so sometimes I find that I've been playing computer games for several hours. This is pretty amazing in itself, considering the consistency of my brain matter at that point.

4. I managed to get myself looped into "girly night"; I'm leaving work early for it, no less. I guess I could be called girly at times, though I've always been irritated by girly things. What does this mean????

"Girly night" is being held at Jardin, a local winery by my house. Once a month they have a girls night. Tonight they will have hair models on site to show the new summer styles! Oooh, and we'll get demonstrations of waxing techniques. Gross. Well, I suppose the on site wine will make the on site models and waxing more interesting.

5. I set up my new blog. Ta-da!
