Tired. Don't want to go to work cause I want to get this stuff with the Jeep taken care of. Slightly cranky because I don't get to go to the Library book sale this year. But other than that, pretty darn good! Lost tonight yay! ♥
Even your first couple of weeks you should be able to get a little leeway for dealing with DMV stuff. Talk to the bosses, see if you can make up the time. I'm afraid you're outta luck on the library sale. :( On the other hand, Christmas soon! :D
I'm loopy from staying up too late three nights in a row watching baseball.
I mean, I just said to our Marketing Director, "I got an email from ... that guy this morning, with another ... thingy in it."
Can I sleep under your desk while you're gone, Melly?
*makes you a nest*
You've had a rough couple of days.
Matt's dad is a huge Sox fan so I got to wake Matt up this morning by saying "The Sox pushed the Yankees to a seventh game" and watch his face go all smiley-crinkly. I'm not a huge baseball fan, but I'm a big fan of what it does for my friends. :)
When you come back, we'll go for mussels and Guinness, okay? I'll be less loopy by then.
Right now, baseball is giving me an ulcer. Ask me again after tonight what it does for me, and you might get a different answer. *loves all over you*
omg yes. Mussels and Guinness and shopping all up and down Fells and into little used book stores and that one that sells old dishes, old books, and gay porn. And then? More Guinness.
I have to agree. That was the best day ever. *hugs you tightest possible*
I love days like that.. just puttering and poking in to places and knowing that you're with someone goofy enough to appreciate all the weird stuff you find. *kisses your heeeeed*
I am autumnal. And watching the skin on my wee hands flake off grr.
so would anyone notice if you didn't, you know, come back from the offsite meeting?
I saw your post. I'm tempted to send you special soap to take in with you. There's no need for you to be assaulted by that kind of crap from every front.
And sadly I have to come back as I'm going with three of my teammates. Grrr. I am, however, taking an uber long lunch. Why? Because I can.
*makes you pnakcaes*
I am hungover from the best meal of my life to date, and ridiculously happy about it.
I'm all alone in Denver. I have a city map and money for the bus. And I'm not afraid to use it.
I am missing my doggie and my own bed and my own pillow, but I go home tomorrow, so that's OK.
I am listening to medieval motets and blissing out.
I am anxious for next week to get here so that I can glomp you properly.
Tell me about the meal.. tell me tell me :)
And I can't wait for a good glomping. Prepare for retaliatory glomping though, you've been warned.
*uses Nigella icon to talk about food*
Well, we went to Maggiano's which serves the best southern Italian food I've ever eaten. yum.
First we started with a bottle of red zinfandel. And then we had a platter of fried calamari with the best marinara sauce I've ever eaten in my life. I don't even like calamari usually, but these were very lightly breaded and fried until just tender and sweet. yum!
And then they brought our entrees. I got the chicken piccata with the lemon and the capers and the gaaaaaalic and the white wine, and a side order of broccoli with gaaaaaalic and lemon. This is a "family style" place, though, so the portions were HUGE. The chicken was probably enough for two people and there was an entire pound of broccoli. *burps*
It was so good Melly. I ate and ate and ate. I had skipped lunch, so I still had 21 points going in, but when I wrote it all down after I got home, I had used all those points, plus another 22 flex. YUM! OINK! Hope I didn't forget to write down anything. o.O
If ever you are in Denver, you must eat at this restaurant.
UNIVERSE FEED ME NOW.
OMG you have curried chickpeas! *jealous*
OMG they're so good! Is it wrong to eat lunch at 10:30, even though I've already eaten breakfast *and* snack?
Don't know you... You don't know me... just popping head in to say I LOVE YOUR ICON... and because of your icon and your Mell'ys friend - you must be most awesome indeed :)
Isn't it wonderful? I got it from poisoninjest
(more PB icons here
). It makes me happy.
-tired and angsty from baseball
-missing the NC-trip contingent
-missing the Chicago girlies
-missing the Baltimore/D.C. girlies
-excited about Lost tonight yay.
And busy at work. Sigh.
We talked about you all the time. We missed you like crazy.
I'm so glad you guys had a good time - how was the Big Gay Boat? Is it still Big and Gay?
P.S. We saw the BGB on TV a couple of weeks ago! The Monday Night Football game was a Ravens Stadium, and on the aerial shot, we saw the BGB! I may or may not have done a little dance of joy.
Melly! Melly! Meetings obnoxious. :( Bring me with you when you go back to work. Baltimore is pretty, even in the rain. And I will help you engineer an escape! For I AM SUPER LALA! *strikes pose*
My car wouldn't start this morning. Luckily, I was starting it to drive it into the shop anyway. But then I cajoled it with promises of a tune-up, and it did. I don't know why I just told you that, except that you asked. *g*
I'm visiting my mother this week in NC and so far:
~Mom caught me looking at a VERY suspicious page on LJ however, did not focus in on the screen long enough to register what it was. *whew*
~Have gone to bed with the laptop everynight in an attempt to finish reading a HP/QaF crossover fic. Have not yet finished and have not yet been caught.
*fist of victory*
Wow, the RL forbidden slant really amps up the slash! I don't get that when I'm all on my onesies.
