Happy Happy Halloween.

I'm stoked for Halloween and the upcoming weekend.
Halloween at work is always a good time. I love seeing everyone dressed up in costumes. It gives you a fun little insight to another side of the people you work with everyday. I have a fun costume to wear to work, that is actually extremely simple, which is really nice. the zero effort I have to put into this costume makes it a favorite.

I have a almost official plan for Halloween evening. I had been rethinking going out at all after my LOVELY mistake last Saturday (skipping dinner followed by too many vodka cocktails). And since hearing some friends plans to cruise to Oakland and or Frisco for Halloween festivities. I started to plan a PJ night. No adventures for me this year... BUT! After some talk with a coworker, I found a perfect middle ground. Mansion gathering in Palo Alto is looking to be PLAN A. Close to home. I like it!

Costume for work: CHECK!
Costume for Halloween evening: iffffffy......
So, now to quickly finish plans for my evening costume. 3 days people!!! shit.

AND THEN! SATURDAY is the big day. Well, bigger day than most. Our Baby shower for Emily and Baby Bubba Brandt! We've been planning it for months, and I'm so excited to see how it plays out, and if I am any good at this kind of stuff. I really am ecstatic! I am so pleased with our plans and the way things have been working out over the past few conversations our little committee has had. I feel like we are really pulling together to make something really special happen.

p.s. I work with few morons and It's horribly horribly frustrating. I also think I'm just irritable somewhat in general lately, I've noticed. What gives? I'm not sure. Vacation will be good here soon... So, I apologize if I come off rude. I've had about 3 or 4 friends ask me if I'm mad at them for something... awesome. I don't really get mad if I can avoid it. I hate being mad. I have been quiet lately though. I'm just inside with my thoughts, nothing personal :)

We might as well be strangers in another town. We might as well be living in a different world.

Happy Wednesday. I feel very strongly that it should be Friday. I am having kind of an off week. I had a cold over the weekend, and it's still lingering... I'm a mess when I'm sick. I have allergies pretty bad, so I should be used to a constant runny nose but, nope. And I don't hold back shit when I blow. So, I'm scaring off pretty much anyone who encounters me at this point. On top of just being extra clutzy (spilling drink makeup and various other contents all over myself), I'm slower at everything I do right now. Needless to say, this shit needs to F - off.

A quick update on my life:
Still working. Trying to do more at work... I've been in this lull since my Olympic project ended. So, I'm looking forward to my project with Warner Brothers/CW next month.

The Sharks season has begun again, and I got the opportunity to go to the Columbus Blue Jackets game and sit in the 1st row directly on the glass behind the Blue Jackets. I humiliated myself on local (and national, I's sure) Television. Awesome. But, I had a blast watching the game way up close and personal while my coworkers talked shit to the Blue Jackets most of the evening.
I've learned the art of Beer Pong and about mastered it. haha, not really. I suck, but I usually do good when Travis is on my team, or when I play against him and he lets me cheat. I always have fun hanging out with that whole crew, I'm so glad to have been invited to join in events with all them. Sometimes, you just gotta get crazy, and we usually do. I Love new friends.

Jeremy was here a few weeks ago visiting from NEW YORK!!!! Which was beyond awesome. I haven't seen him in a year and a half or more, a the last time I saw him we were dating. And we haven't kept in touch much at all since he moved. I thought it was going to be slightly weird, but it totally wasn't. It just seemed like old times, which was nice. I hate losing touch with people, and I have with sooo many people. AND, a few weeks ago I found out that I had 13 Vacation days saved up, and I top off at 15 days accrued. and I accrue almost 7 hours a month. I haven't taken any vacation this year, soooo... I decided to go to New York for a week. I'm extremely nervous about flying by myself. But, it'll be good to force myself to get over the fear and do something on my own. Mind you, I won't be alone while in New York. But getting there is half the battle, so it's still a big deal to me. I'm excited to go in the fall and be there when I'm not trying to keep myself from getting hypothermia because I'm a baby when it comes to being cold. So, I'm excited or a November trip to check it out. I'm hoping to make enough money before I go to enjoy some more serious shopping. So far, I plan to go to the Adidas store, and the H&M's for sure to shop. But, I'd love to acquire some new Denim. Jeremy also mentioned that it will be necessary to check out Barney's, however I doubt I'll be purchasing there. It will be neat to see none the less. And, with that being said, I've hopped on the band wagon and started to list a few things here and there on eBay, that I've been meaning to get rid of for a while now anyway, to see if I can get a little extra spending cash for the trip. Check it out if you feel so inclined, Seller name: ChurchofKrust. It's really just a few items at a time. I get over it too easily to list very much at once. But, I have a bunch of stuff that should be showing up there in the next couple weeks. :)

Alright, back to work and drooling over hottie coworkers, because I am 12!
