I never really read the Twilight books, or understood what the craze was over the movies.  That is, until katmcd and I watched New Moon while we were in Hilton Head.  Something about Bella's sadness while missing Edward, just sitting around for months, empty, it made me feel so sad, like I was 2 years ago.  Anyways, after that I wanted to watch all of them. I had previously borrowed the first Twilight from katmcd and watched it two nights in a row. So on Tuesday, I went out and bought all 3. I watched New Moon 2 days ago, and tonight I'm just going to relax and watch Eclipse.

But first of course I went to happy hour with MB to just get a few quick drinks.  Then I went to the gym, obvi. 

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve.  I hope it's seriously just low key and full of my friends and really fun.

Things Never to Use as a Pickup...Story

It all started with this giant ring on my finger at the bar on Wednesday.  It's not real, but it's large and has lots of (fake) diamonds.

Who bought you that ring?  You bought it yourself?  Oh well you deserve someone to buy you jewelry. (Uhm, yeah thanks are you offering?)
You haven't had sex in how long?  Wow that's a long time. I get laid about every 4th or 5th trip (this man travels for his job, which equates to maybe 3-4 cities in a week or so, minimum 2 trips a month.)

I may have paraphrased some of that, but the gist is that this man katmcd was chatting with kept talking to MB and I after katmcd left and those are a few gems that he said to me.  I knew someone who did a job like his once, so I think he was kind of shocked to see that I called him out hooking up with girls so much.  Admittedly he was pretty nice and took a lot of my shit but honestly, I really don't need a man who doesn't live here, travels 90% of the time, and is at an average rate of 6 girls a year.  I',m not really judging though, because I was crazy awful in college, but at my age, and his age for that matter, that seems a bit high.  And that's certainly not the point. 

The holidays have been overall pretty nice and filled with a lot of ice skating, movie watching, football watching, and boozing.  Speaking of movie watching, JCoupon, Zig and I saw Tron Legacy yesterday.  HOLY BADASS MOVIE BATMAN.  It was so awesome.  And Daft Punk did a great job with the soundtrack.  Yay.

Weekend Recap

Friday night was movie date night with MB and we saw Love and Other Drugs.  It was....ok.  I loved Jake Gyllenhall's character, but Anne Hathaway drove me nuts.  I really liked watching their relationship develop throughout the movie and it was interesting seeing how the move progressed.  I wonder if maybe I just didn't like it because I have so little faith that people(read: men) are like that.  After the movie, I went to bed and slept until 12 the next day. 

Saturday I had to close at work, but it was awesome because mb was also closing.  Afterwards, we moved across the street to RiRa and met up with katmcd and Uncle Sam, this boy she's kind of seeing.  As a back story, the 3 of us met Uncle Sam at the Night of the Living Zoo party.  He remembered katmcd's name, facebooked her, and they've been friends ever since.  I barely recognized him sans costume but he was tall and cute and so nice.  He was constantly asking mb and I questions and was super engaging.  Well done katmcd.  RiRa was as usual a fabulous time.  MB had us all taking oatmeal cookie shots(I have no clue what the hell was in this) and peppermint patty shots(peppermint schnapps and chocolate syrup).  We were dancing and singing to this small trio band.  

Oh, quick sidenote, Uncle Sam and I did this shot which was straight vodka with an olive.  He said that if I take the shot and then eat the olive, I won't taste the vodka at all.  I don't like olives, so I just took the shot, pushed the olive aside and moved on.  But question, does that actually work?

Today was spent at work almost all day.  I was pissed because I missed the Cowboys/Skins game, but I heard they won, so that's awesome.  I'm just closing up the day with some movies and hopefully heading to bed early.  I have a weird thought that even though this is only a 3 day week it's going to be SUPER long.  But I still have 5 unopened presents (I only opened 1 so far!) to open on Saturday morning.  I'm proud of myself.  Happy Christmas Week!

Happy Last Full Week of Work in the Year!

So last night was amazing and here's what I came out of the party with:
1. No bar tabs
2. A fantastic dinner
3. A Jack/Diet Coke, 4 glasses of wine, 2 Miller Lites, 1 stolen Heineken, 1 stolen whiskey something
4. New friendships with coworkers and Erin's friend date
5. Blisters on my feet from my heels
6. My coworker was talking to some cop about her car when my group was leaving the bar.  We all started screaming, "Woooooooo!" and "Hot Cop!" 
7. People loved my koozie
8.  We love to take over the entire back room of Sign of the Whale.
9. Our entire project team loves to drink and get down on the dance floor.  Ridiculous, I know.

Tonight I'm going to see Love and Other Drugs with MB.  I wanted to see it so I'm pretty excited.  I'm also so freakin exhausted and I can sleep in tomorrow.  It's going to be great!

Elementary School

You know what is kind of cool?  I just got invited to an Elementary School reunion with about 25 of my old classmates.  Some of them still hang out together which I just think is incredible.  I moved to Texas when I was 11, which was going into 7th grade, and I lost touch with almost everyone.  Through the wonders of facebook, I slowly started becoming friends with them and I get to stalk their lives.  It's crazy.  We knew each other almost 20 years ago.  I'm almost very sad to be missing this get-together. 

Tomorrow is my project's holiday party.  It's a nice dinner and drinks, hopefully followed by an awesome after party. 
1. I hope it's fun
2. MB is my date, I know she'll be a good time
3. I hope I'm not at work until 6

Currently I have 4 presents under the tree.  My mom came to visit this weekend.  We ate really good food but she wouldn't let me open them.  Hahah, such torture.

I had such a great weekend, but I'm exhuasted.  I'm so glad the holidays are coming up.  Work is obviously crazy busy but this week we have our project holiday party/dinner.  MB's going to be my fabulous date and we're going to have a great time. 

2 weeks until Christmas.  They are going to fly.

Goodbye my hopeless dream.

I Knew It

I was at work until 7:15 tonight.  I pulled an 11 hour day.  YIKES.

My mom comes on Friday and today I received a lovely present from my aunt.  The box had the designer name on it, and I happen to have almost no self control so I went ahead and wrapped the whole box in Christmas paper.  Right now under my tree is that box and shoes.  I was using the wall where my tree now stands to let my shoes hang out in a row.  It works, and shoes and bags, that's what every (most) girls love.  Including me!  I'm hoping my mom will come buy me groceries though.  I was reading another girl's blog and it made me laugh because like her, I only have beer, Firefly vodka, and some yogurt in my fridge.  In my freezer is ice and Sky vodka.  Oops.

Also, why the hell is it so damn cold?

Weekend Recap

My weekend in VA Beach was pretty great.  Obviously we ran and survived the 10 Miler.  It was the coldest thing I've ever experienced.  It was painful, but we finished, and the after party was pretty sweet.  Sam Adams beer, a band, food, and a really nice time.  We also got the freakin sweetest finisher metal that doubled as a beer bottle opener.  Thanks guys, great race. 

It snowed almost all of Saturday night as of 5pm.  We got to watch the beach parade, and then went to a nice bar and had a cocktail.  It was a pretty early night and then today we drove back and stopped in Fredericksburg for some Sonic.  DELICIOUS.

This week is going to be rough.  I just know work is going to be really busy and I am still really enjoying it so it's fine.  Next week is our project's holiday party and this Friday my mom comes in for our Christmas dinner and stuff. 

I don't know.  I think I'm just ready for 2011.

COWBOYS WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The X Effect

I have a guilty pleasure to admit.  Do you remember the MTV show The X Effect? 

Well, I think this show is one of my guilty pleasures.  MTV canceled the show forever ago, but MTV3 (Tres-the spanish MTV) shows reruns.

If you don't know it, basically there is 2 couples, but one member of each couple used to be a couple.  So imagine A and B are dating, C and D are dating, but in th epast A and D were dating.  So the show takes the old couple, couple A/D and make them have this "romantic" weekend together, while their current relationships, B/C, sit and spy in another room at the same hotel.  My absolute favorites are when the ex's hook up, the current bf/gfs see it, and then hook up themselves.  Luckily enough, tonight is one just like that!  The current bf just said to the current gf (after they were kissing and moved to the bedroom) "You're making me hard" and the spanish translation was like, "I'm excited".  Bahahahahaahahaha. 

Also, totally unrelated, but I want my future husband/boyfriend/hook up to look like this(it's Daddy Yankee) (and act like him, he's got swagger, and hi, I love his music):
