I’ve been a bit lagged on Google Reader. Whoopsies. I’ll get there. I always do.

A few days ago some of my coworkers and I went to:

Vermicelli Combo aka Bun Dac Biet [combination of grilled pork & chicken vermicelli rice noodles served with house sauce, green onions, lettuce, pickled carrots, pickled daikon, bean sprouts, cucumbers, carrots, & crushed peanuts} | $7.79

Additional $1.99 for a choice of one eggroll or one spring roll plus a fountain drink …

Which I wished I knew because I would not have taken that. I don’t like soda much and that spring roll looked a little sad. Yeah, this place is good if I want Pho close to work … but I’ve had better. My coworkers thought it tasted pretty darn good though. Guess it was just mine that was not up to par.

Today started out a little different …

So gorgeous. The light shining through would be lighting and I love that the moon was just chilling up above. Surprisingly no rain came down the whole drive to work. And it reminded me of Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away:

“Dry lightning cracks across sky
Those storm clouds gather in her eyes …”

Pretty obsessed with this song right now. Sad song though.

I made today an FTK day. Natural lighting aka florescent lights with an exposure value of +2.0 makes for some pretty pictures. Glowing! Haven’t wore my FTK polo in so long. I heard a lot of things about FTK from various people that are still in it and it seems a lot has changed. I wonder how it’s been. Guess I’ll be able to see when I go visit toward the end of the month.

Upon going with some of my coworkers to buy coffee … Venti Caramel Macchiato, a friend/old coworker told me to meet her downstairs by the elevator. She surprised me with a Tall Pumpkin Spice Latte. My first one ever and I loved it!

You would think a girl that doesn’t drink a lot of coffee would be wide awake … false. Coffee doesn’t do anything to me but make me pee like a horse.

A friend of mine sent me this. Ahh … makes me wish I was still in SA. And it’s nice I’m still thought of. Cannot wait to see her toward the end of the month as well!

The puppy I would like to have. So cute!

Please let me know where I can get him!

Remember that one time I went to go give blood and they messed up? Well I went back in to give blood again, passed all the tests and got told I couldn’t give blood because the last time I did it, they took too much RBCs so now my body doesn’t have enough RBCs and I will have to wait til December.

Disappointed.

And what’s worse is Mallory and I scheduled our appointment together to hang out. Needless to say I went home and left her there. I was too sad to stay and watch everyone give blood.

***************************

Day off tomorrow and I have a list of errands to run. Weee!

TGTBLIG!

Is It My Birthday?

Because it feels like my birthday today.

One of our servers were down so I didn’t have to do a lot of my work til the end of the day.

And with that I went out for lunch with two coworkers, Shelly and Philippa, for Pho. PHO YEAH! ha Get it?

And when we got back, the power went out for a brief moment which means all the work I did POOF! gone! And no, I couldn’t have saved it if I wanted to. There’s no saving work at our job. You do until you click that button. Pfft … so a group of us got into an office and just talked for awhile. LOVE!

By the time we got our computers back up and running, it was time for cake. Yep, you read that right. CAKE. Someone was leaving and a new person was taking her place so we celebrate, in a way, for all her hard work. I didn’t eat cake. I gave my piece to the diabetic, Tony C. Yep. That’s right. He ate two pieces.

And by the time that ended, there was only a couple hours left. But it didn’t end there …

I pretty much get the mail everyday when I come home and today I got to turn the special key that goes into the box which always means there’s a big ass package inside that didn’t fit in your usual box! Happy danced in the middle of the street. One of my online shopping stuff came!

Then upon coming to the front door, another package awaited me. Two packages in one day?! Another happy dance in front of my house. Whoopie!! There had been problems with the new phone that I got in Hong Kong so I shipped it back to Kathy who got the problem fixed and sent it back to me along with some other stuff!

Now it works like a charm. I got a new phone and it’s better than yours. That’s all that matters.

And if that’s not enough, tomorrow is FRIDAY.

Which means I get to leave an hour early and possibly even early since I’ve worked overtime. And I get to eat lunch with Rose. AND going to a nearby shelter to search for a cute little face.

EEEEEP!

Think Good Thoughts, y’all!

Peace & Love

Busy Weekend

I woke up late yesterday to the 5k Diploma Dash. I brushed my teeth and jumped on Jenny’s bed so she could take me. I made it in time!! And walked the 5k in less than an hour. I had shin splints so doing it in 56 minutes wasn’t bad to me. I beat other people younger than me who walked it in more than 1 hour. Next time I will run the 5k in October in Houston. At least that’s the plan.

I went to basketball practice but change of plans made practice into scrimmages. Leah wasn’t going to come to practice but she was watching some kid show (up above) with her nephew and her words exactly, “This is what made me come …” long pause “… to basketball practice.” Which made me laugh so loud. Love her.

Leah and I waited too long to get our scrimmage on so we left with Eric T. and Gerald. Said bye to Leah and the rest of us went and ate Pho on Bitters. It was delicious. Especially on such a windy day. We had lots of laughter and giggles. A lot of inside jokes and I got to know them better. It was fun and it was more amazing because Gerald drove instead of me. I hate driving!

I went home to relax then went to Flying Saucer with Amanda, Brent, and Jenny. What was suppose to be a date with Amanda and I became a double … in a way. I didn’t mind it though. The more the merrier.

I caught up with Amanda about stuff going on with her and stuff going on with me. Brent and Amanda gave me some advice which kind of made me feel better but at the same time, not so much.

Jenny got the Texas sample beers. YuM! I think I want to do that next time I go just so I can try everything.

We bumped into Travis at Flying Saucer earlier and he said he was going to come over whenever we got home. And so he did. We hung out and talked and looked at funny pictures online.

First time in my life I was so tired that I kept closing my eyes. So we called it a night.

Woke up early working on things then went to Football Practice for a few hours. I am so tired out.

Jenny and I just got back from Fish City Grill. Sad we couldn’t get crawfish but next time. Next time. Open-mouthed smile

Soccer Game in one hour and thirty minutes. Let’s go! Winking smile
