oh yeah...

I forgot to post this last week. But, I went to Phantom for free (the only way to see shows in Vegas). I loved it which is strange considering that I always hated it before seeing it here. Maybe it was the fact that I was sitting directly under the chandelier and when it dropped I literally thought it was going to fall on me and crush me. That kind of excitement will make you love anything.

Someone just played the mormon card on me at work today.

"ya know, we have the same religious background and we need to stick together in this town. And, we... we will always choose the right!"

Yeah, don't ever say that to me again.

Oh Angela...

"I guess I wouldn't mind a pair of small, well behaved boys."

ALL day?

This morning on the way to work (which happened to be at 9am) I declared today "ALL AEROSMITH, ALL DAY!" day.

umm... it's 2pm and I'm already tired of Aerosmith. So, really today turned into "ALL AEROSMITH, ALL DAY... or until I get sick of it!" day.

But, my favorite Aerosmith memory is of my best friends son singing "Rag Doll" at the age of 5ish.

Holy Crap! Forget everything I ever said about moving to a snowy climate! Watch THIS!

And for some reason THIS makes me feel better.

Also, just for the sake of a dancing update- we went dancing for my birthday redo on saturday night. Carnival Club with a few of my girls and boys (including my minor project) WHO CAN ACTUALLY DANCE! Party on 'til the break of dawn, I say!

Today is a SNOW DAY! But, not for me... I live in a place where the only variance in the weather is the temperature. The forecast rarely indicates anything other than clear skies. Normally I love living in a place where I don't have to scrape the ice off my windows and use my 4wheel driving skills (of which I have none).

However, today I realized that there are places in the world where if it snows a lot you don't have to go to work!! Hello! Sign me up for that! I remember when church got cancelled when I was a young lass growing up in Utah. That was pretty cool, although since it was sunday we really couldn't go out and play in the snow. So, what was the point in skipping church. But, skipping work? I could totally be ok with having to scrape the ice off my windshield 4 months out of the year if it could guarantee a couple of snow days every year.

If things go according to plans I'm pretty sure I'll be working the rest of my life to secure some financial stability (ugh) so I'm thinking I need to stock up on warm clothes and ice scrapers and relocate to the snowiest place in the lower continental states. Any suggestions? Think lots of snow people. Plus... the closer I am to snow the more I get to snowboard. woot!

However, I realize as I sit here in my office that I think this is a good idea now but I'm not sure giving up being able to wear sandals year round and not owning an ice scraper would actually be worth the one snow day a year I'd likely get. I think I'd rather just fake sick... and go shopping... in my sandals... with clear roads. Plus, I just remembered that I hate being cold. So nevermind on all that moving to a snowy place nonsense I just wrote. And turn up the heat!

PS- Guitar Hero is pretty much the greatest thing ever invented.

Friday Afternoon

christy says: i want to quit my job
christy says: it's lame
Wendi says: do it.
Wendi says: JK
Wendi says: don't not yet anyway
Wendi says: What would you rather do?
christy says: be a housewife
christy says: haha
christy says: no really though
christy says: that's what i'd rather do... but i can't really control whether or not i get that job
christy says: or just be independantly wealthy and travel
Wendi says: LOL!
christy says: or get paid to sleep
Wendi says: LOL
Wendi says: that's even better!
Wendi says: I love it!

And, I just lost a contest in which a 3 year old was giving away his art work. Honestly, I'm pretty bummed about it. So, there you go. That's my life.

My head doesn't feel fuzzy anymore!

I'm happy to report that after a month of being sick, my head is finally feeling not fuzzy and my glands and lymph nodes are unswollen. So, it no longer feels like someone hit me in the back of the head with a hammer then punched me in the throat. I think my eyelids are even finally back to normal and not swollen to 3 times their normal puffy state. Good times indeed.

I guess the antibiotics the patronizing doctor gave me actually worked. I spent the morning of the day after my birthday in bed then finally conceded to go to a doctor. I'm not one who likes going to the doctor. Not that I'm afraid of them, but because I'm usually never sick and if I do get sick I suck it up and deal with it. 3 weeks of sucking it up and dealing with it just wasn't working for me so when I told the doctor what my symptoms were she said "you have an upper respiratory infection. In other words, you have a cold." Well NO $#!& SHERLOCK! I could have told you that... in fact I DID tell you that! Now just give me the D@%& DRUGS!

Enough of that. I'm almost all better now.

I did a lot of sleeping before saturday night so that I could suck it up enough to go to Gilley's to celebrate my birthday. SO FUN! Thanks to everyone who came, especially for the ones that danced and made it pretty much the best birthday in a really long time. I like when people dance. It makes me happy. I didn't take any photos because I was too busy having fun and looking cute- yeah, I wore my new belt and my cowgirl hat. It was pretty hot. I even got a boyfriend while I was there. Granted, he was a crusty old cowboy that didn't have all his teeth but hey, a boyfriend's a boyfriend right?

Oh, and if you're awake at 2am something fun to do is read Mormon Doctrine... especially the part about 'sex immorality'. And, really it's only funny because you'll need a dictionary to understand a word he writes. And, because it's so 'hellfire and damnation'. And hellfire and damnation are always funny at 2am.

The Holiday

My holidays officially end on my birthday... which means the holidays end today. Tomorrow marks the start of studying season so I'll be somewhat of a hermit until April 21st.

In order to end the holidays with a bang I appropriately went and saw "The Holiday" today.
The Holiday = best movie ever!!! Love, love, loved it! There were too many parts to decide which part was my favorite but I was amazed with Iris' assessment of heartbreak and Miles' appropriate reaction:

Listen, I know it's hard to believe people when they say, "I know how you feel." But, I actually know how you feel.
You see, I was, uhm, seeing someone back in London. We worked for the same newspaper. And then I found out that he was also seeing this other girl, Sarah, from the circulation department on the 19th floor. Turned out that he wasn't in love with me like I thought.
What I'm trying to say is I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places that you didn't know you had inside you. And it doesn't matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends. You still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong, or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell, for that brief moment, you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he will see the light and show up at your door.
And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new and you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, they'll eventually begin to fade.

Whew. Well f***, you need this more than I do.

Thanks everyone who offered well wishes today. Love to you all! You made it a great day. If any of y'all are in town on saturday we'll be partying it up at Gilley's for my official birthday celebration!!

From Astrologyzone.com

If your birthday falls on January 3, your whole year ahead will be one where you see a culmination of many efforts you made on several fronts in the years leading up to 2007. You may now end one chapter of your life and open the door on an exciting new one that is set to begin things YOU set in motion - it is unlikely that changes will be forced on you.

29 kinda feels like 28

I'm only half way through my birthday and aside from having to wake up and come to work it hasn't been half bad. But seriously, how can it be a bad day when your friend sends you cards like this?
Plans for the rest of the day include Lucky Pizza with the office crew, ice cream from danielle's and taking myself to go see 'The Holiday'.
The real celebration will be this weekend. I'm thinking Gilley's. Free dance lessons at 8:30pm and bikini bull riding at midnight. Who could say no to that?
Happy My Birthday, Y'all!!
