Tally Ho

Lots of international blog visitors lately - hello Kuwait, Brazil, Belgium, Phillipines, UK, Slovenia and Canada. Strange....never so many all in one quick swoop. Too bad I've only been to one of those places.

Thank goodness there's only 15 minutes left in Wednesday. Not that it was that bad of a day, I just can't get myself together. The social life is taking over, and I haven't had a moment to catch up. I woke at 5:30 this morning for some unknown reason, and nearly considered staying up to get a head start on the day. Then I realized that would be insane and went back to bed. I could've used those few hours though.

Had a horrid time getting dressed this morning. Had the pants, shoes, put on the shirt, decided it wouldn't do with the pants, changed the pants, realized the shoes didn't go with those pants, changed shoes, and within 10 minutes went from a hot outfit to absolutely blah. At least it was approriate for the weather. Still haven't worn the rainboots - and it sucks that the rubber smell is now permeating my room. Gotta find quick remedy. Wonder if Heloise has any tricks up her sleeve. That's a fun word to say over and over again......

Got more responsibility today at work, which is a good thing, but I really need to buckle down and crank things out. I still feel kinda useless - like I haven't learned anything or can't do anything on my own. I'm going to blame most of that on my last job, where absolutely everything (it seemed) had to get approved 489 times before you could carry something out. I gotta get the indepedence and confidence back now that people don't question my work all the time.

I've got plans for the next 4 days, but I have a lot to get done around the house. Where's the time? Jeans to get washed and tailored, shoes to return, a pair to buy, wedding to attend, clothes to pick up, clothes to prep for consignment, mail to answer, books to read, DVDs to watch, birthday party to throw and enjoy....

New John Mayer is really good if you haven't picked it up yet. Already in love with I Don't Trust Myself, Stop This Train, and Slow Dancing in a Burning Room. Also listening to a lot of Pharrell. Weird.

Last night was the inaugural potluck for our newly formed "work sorority." There's eight girls, all the same age, so we're getting our gab on outside the office. It's nice to make friends at work. I also checked out chocolate happy hour at Love Cafe today - mmmm....amaretto cupcakes.... that'll be happening again very soon. Cupcakes for dinner - who can argue with that?
