I would LOVE to have dinner with you

I haven't had the chance to say that in a while. Or anything that even closely resembles that. Kinda sad, I know, but what can you do?

I'll tell ya what I can do, I can go on a date without a boy. Sometimes there is nothing better than going for a nice dinner by yourself. Bring a book, have a glass of wine and your meal couldn't be more perfect.

I did that yesterday. I wanted to make it dinner and a movie, but the Princess only has shows at 7 & 710. What about a 7:30 for those of us who 7ish is too early for? HUH!? I went to Packrat Louie's (one of my favs in the city) had a salad, my fav pizza and a couple glasses of wine. Brought my book, but ended up mainly eavesdropping on other people's conversations. I was totally ready to jump in when I heard a father complaining about how his daughter doesn't have any direction. I felt like telling him to calm down, and let her find her own way. I didn't, but it sure woulda been HILARIOUS!

Well, it's off to work I go. I hate morning shifts. Can't we just have a kiosk or something so no one has to work at this ungodly hour?? Is that too much to ask?! UGH!

Don't get your hopes up

I tell myself that all the time. Whenever I have gotten my hopes up, like really up, I am always disappointed. I am always left sitting there wondering, why did I do that again?

This is just the cynic in me I suppose. I know people who are constantly seeing the 'bright-side" of things and continue to do so, regardless of the outcome. In fact, I believe these same people are rarely disappointed. Otherwise, why would they continue to be so happy-go-lucky retarded?

Ok, that was mean, but seriously. If you don't expect / hope for anything, how can you be disappointed. Keep your feet firmly planted in reality and you are good to go. Right?

It really does take the excitement out of things though. But I think my body has taken enough disappointment for one lifetime, so a lack of excitement is ok with me.

Also, I think I was standing next to my soulmate and didn't even realize it. Can you imagine?? Here is the proof.

Don't judge the belly. I had starved myself all day to look skinny enough for the outfit, and then drink beer. How stupid am I??

I just finished working ten days in a row. I know, I know, you have all probably heard me complain about this, but let me reiterate how exhausting this was for me. I haven't done that in a REALLY long time. And I really felt like I didn't get to see any of my non-work friends in a very long time. It is weird how people who have normal jobs, with normal hours aren't really into hanging at 11:30 at night. Weird.

To rejoice my break from work, I spent time with some (just some, not all) of my favorite people.

I got to work with Brandy Friday night. I never get to work with Brandy, in fact, I think it might be a conspiracy that is keeping us apart. We had a gay old time. In fact, we decided to create a myspace page for the two of us. Here it is if you are bored. Iris and Brandy's Excellent Adventures

We then went out for a friend's birthday. Ally came too, which is always fun. I get to see Ally a lot, I think she might be addicted to me, as I am to her, but we were dancing, and just having a good time. Unfortunately the cute boy ratio was a little low, so no random makeouts in the corner occurred.

Saturday I got up bright and early for a brunch date with Lis, Lisa and Autumn. I haven't had the chance to see the girls since my birthday, so it was nice to see them all. Autumn cooked us a really nice breakie and Lis and I brought some booze to spice things up.

Came home and hung out with my mom. We went shopping, as this is the best bonding thing we can do. We both love it and we just get to chill out and hang. What did I buy you want to know? A couple pairs of shoes and a few cds. Can I just say how good TV on the Radio is? They really do rock.

After shopping, mom and I laid around and watched Ugly Betty. I then went to Paul's new house and hung out with him. Since the move, which was well documented here, I haven't been able to hang with him as much, so whatever time I get with Smelly Paul is always appreciated. We watched Follow that Bird. It is a Sesame Street movie, but it is funny as hell.

Sunday was reserved for randomness with Jarod. I found out about gossip music month at McDougall Church, and dragged Jarod and Steve along with me. I haven't been to a church service in forever, but this was good. The choir itself sucked, but the band they brought in for it was really good. Steve and I were singing and Jarod appeared to be on fire, not really sure what that's about.

Church was followed by brunch at the Sugar Bowl. I so don't get why High Level Diner is the one that everyone always goes to. This was WAY better with a more interesting menu and a better beer selection.

Sunday night RoRo and I went to a Russian mockumentary at Metro Cinema. I am still confused as to what happened during it, or what it was ACTUALLY about, but meh, it was interesting enough. Just seeing those crazy Ruskies and their cinema was good enough for me.

So that was my weekend. I was actually really good. I got to see my peeps and spend some QT with them, which is always welcome and appreciated.

Alrighty, I am off to catch up on some much needed sleep. Tomorrow is cleaning day in Casa de Iris and let me tell ya, it is going to be EXHAUSTING!

I get it now

Ok, so I didn't realize that you needed to add a player to make the playlist play. Duh. I give up. I have spent almost an hour trying to figure out the player. So whatever. I don't have sound on my firefox right now (a whole other situation) and there are no speakers at work. Sound sometimes escapes me. Meh. Deal with it.

Has anyone seen the Hyper Hypo skit on SNL many moons ago. Well, I am pretty sure I am starting to become a hyper hypo. I had a unreasonably exhausting back-to-back this morning and to fuel it, I consumed 4 (YES 4!!) cups of green tea. I really feel bad for my co-workers, because I was like a caged animal. Every chance I got, I was talking, and talking at speeds not necessarily meant for humans.

In case you don't remember the SNL clip, here it is from our friends at YouTube. Oh, sweet YouTube. What did we do before the internet? My re-enactment of the clip PALES in comparison to the actual thing. It would have been totally disappointing.

And, hi. Britney Spears is crazy. I am not going to talk about it, but I am often thinking about how crazy she is. My life is sad, I have said it before. DO NOT JUDGE ME.

Ok, that enough of this caffeine induced post. Sorry for the rambling.

A new invention

I found this website that allows you to create playlists and share it with your peeps.

Well peeps, here is my playlist for the week of February 19, 2007.

Let's see if I can keep this up. It doesn't have all the songs I was hoping for, but it has a lot. Even some small groups. Pretty cool shit if you ask me.

Word to tha mutha!


I am starting to hate ....

My job.

Don't get me wrong, I love the people I work with. I love that I don't have any responsibilities that I have to take home with me. I go home and forget about the day. My only beef is that I am getting involved with the drama.

I really like to live a drama free existence. I am ok with the ho-hum, boring daily dealings of my life. I don't like it when I have recently gotten into a fight with a bellman and that is the first thing people ask about.

I don't like knowing who my supervisor is dating and how annoyed she is about boys. I don't like that I have had run-ins with management (well, only one) about poor scheduling. I DON'T LIKE IT!

I also don't like that I AM STILL AT THIS JOB! I thought this was going to be a VERY temporary situation. I am now going on far too many months. Being this bored at work, where I am able to write a whole post about it, sucks. I WANT A CHALLENGE!

Ok, enough for this rant.

Sorry for the lack of posts. Nothing really going on my sad little world. No jobs, no boys, no nothing.

Paul moved and my life fell apart. Isn't this what I was being all dramatic. I knew I was right. I almost always am.
