Green Room - Week 26 - 8

Contrary to the hopes and dreams of many, I did not pull a Dio.

Nor did I pull a Kevin.

Still alive, kicking, and right as usual. :)

***

There is a poll going on at the moment, in case you missed it: http://community.livejournal.com/therealljidol/340937.html

More importantly, there are links to the entries in that poll. Two sets of entries from 25 incredible writers. Your vote is going to decide who is going forward, just like the troll from Lousiana wants it! ;)

***

So, how are you doing? What did you do this weekend?

I am quietly going insane.

But at least I'm quiet about it!

Well, as long as you're quiet about it...

I'm slowly making my way through the entries. I actually spent time enjoying my weekend, which is a bit unusual for me. Also, I want to say thank you to the people who have left such kind words on my entries so far--this week in particular it has meant a lot to me.

This weekend I went to a barbecue in the park and had dinner with a dear friend and caught up on some tv viewing, mostly.

Today I am at work. I'm making my way through entries. I had a bagel for breakfast. I'm freaking out about impending Life Change. You know, the usual stuffs.

Glad you had a nice weekend, missy. :-)

I am now craving a bagel. Damn you! :-p

I've been trying to write the same work email for the last 20 minutes. I need more coffee.

I am also going quietly insane. Being a kitten mommy got a whole lot harder on Saturday when Gizmo stopped producing solid waste. Now it's liquidy waste that was meant to be solid. And every time I turn around, it's on a new surface in my bathroom. So I've done quite a bit of laundry, quite a bit of scrubbing, and a little bit of tush-wiping, as well.

I suppose it's all par for the course and I've just conveniently forgotten what it's like to have a kitten. But she's just so *little* (the vet says she is actually 4 weeks old, not 5) and fragile that I haven't slept much in the past few days.

So I'm sleepwalking through my Monday and biting my fingers over the polls. Damn you, Gary, for switching the order! That may be my undoing.

Awwww. Poor little kitten. It is hard being a kitten mommy. When I had mine, I had to give them penicillin drops because they had such bad infections.

And I hear you on the polls. I'm nervous as hell and just hoping for the best.

I'm having...a week. I got a call from our pediatrician this morning that sent me into a worry spin. Now I must cheer up and prepare for an afternoon of meetings.

In good news, I managed to prep all my veggies for the coming week yesterday, so dinners should be a snap. And I have a new project at work that gears up today - new projects are always fun!!

In other news, I really appreciate the support/love this week. It has not been my greatest week ever, and...yeah.

When the boss is out (like today) I have to do all of her work and try and get my work done. Which means that I am taking a fifteen minute lunch break and learning to love it.

Just hanging in there for one more week at work. I have designated this summer as Reconnection Time. I will let people know that I'm actually still alive and still do care about them. :)

So, hi all. I'm still alive, and I still care about you! :)

Weekend was nice, even if the weather was not. Had fun with College Kid and her new BF. Splurged and took 'em down to Newport On the Levee to have dinner with a skyline view. Fun times.
Finished my work day early today! Yay! Bummer it's still pouring rain, but it means I get to go visit LJ (Idol) Land, so I'll go with that!
Looking forward to the season finale of HOUSE MD tonight. Bet it's a cliff-hanger though...AW

I, too, am looking forward to House...but I hate season finale cliffhangers. :P

I'm also sad that Flashfoward is being cancelled, though I understand why. I only wish that ABC hadn't put half of its new shows on hiatus for 3-4 months... I think that killed some really good shows. :(

Almost done reading everything! I had to stop before I finished the first group, but I'm going to sit down RIGHT NOW and finish them up!

I went to the dentist today. ^^ I LOVE the feeling of a nice clean mouth. ^^

I had lots of fun this weekend. Not all of it suitable to post about...

But just got back from a job interview that went well. I have a second interview on Thursday. It's for something completely random, but hey, I think I might like it more an a "real" job anyway. I will get to train dogs if I get it :)

*sigh* Damn. I unfortunately *did* pull a Kevin. Damn you, Gary. Damn you. And damn the Louisiana Troll! He really does know how to screw things up doesn't he?

Today's not bad so far... though I would much rather be home napping... or napping as much as the furry beast I cohabitate with allows me to nap.

Stressin' about the polls... it's soooooooooo close.

Other than that... received a strange email last night that has me a bit... unsettled I suppose. For lack of a better word. I just can't figure out what the angle/game being played is. Not quite sure what to think about it yet.

May. 17th, 2010 06:26 pm (UTC)
*hugs* again about the e-mail. I really do hope you get it all figured out and feel better about it sweetie.

Sorry you are so tired today. You think they would notice if you took a nap at your desk? I used to sleep at my internship all the time on my lunch breaks...but I was lucky enough to have my own office with a door. Mid-day naps should be implemented at work!

Kevin? Rio? I hate pop cultural references that I don't get. It makes my pregnancy-addled brain hurt!

Dio as in the singer who just died.

"Pulling a Kevin" is a new catch phrase that means to confidentally be wrong, again and again, despite being thrown a life line. :)
