I'm bummed that I'm not excited at all about my other job ... That I start at 230 today. Gotta make the money though, which is what I'll keep tellin myself.
Sucks a bit too, they want me for nights and weekends.. So if I tough it out maybe, just maybe, I'll get a better shifts someday.

It really is a bummer because everyone is super excited about it, some wish they had it and all I think is "I can buy some new shoes and get stuff for the house" "1 shift... 90 bucks. Tough it out" "I can pay half the bills with a weeks work..." and I still can't get "excited".

Maybe my acting skills will improve -or- maybe I'll like it ....



Happy Birthday To...

M'fuckin Monday!!!

    Normally I have music or movies to talk about here and by "talk about", I mean list or recommend in an extremely casual manner.  But today I have far better news!!!!

Avett Christopher Sutton

  Our friends Chris & Kelly had their first baby around 3 in the afternoon 11.14.11.  Her due date was the 10th, but he decided to keep up the suspense and stay in the belly for a few more days, so she and I had coffee and chatted instead :)  Its pretty amazing, they chose to wait and let the babies sex be a surprise and that isn't too common these days.  Kind of rad!  Greg and I went over on Saturday night to have dinner with them, see the babies room & watch the fight.  All things went amazingly and then the next day Kelly said she was having contractions every 10 minutes or so from 3pm on... then a day later Greg gets the text: 

"Baby Button is here!!!  Baby Button is here!!!"

  I'm stoked to go meet him, they come home from the hosp Wed and I'm hoping that I'll have the lil amigurumi made for him :D (fingers crossed)!



No Reason You Should Forget The Date!

    So Gregs old roommate, Courtney, got married Friday.  Spent most of the day working on photos and not getting ready, which is what a good majority of the day should have been.  I ended up doing my hair over 3 times before giving up (and that was in the car on the way to Ventura) and we made it there 5 minutes late but ended up being on time because they started later *whew* anyhow, it was fun.  Got to meet some of Gregs friends and the groom, then a former (possibly renewed) & current contractor Gregs working with.  So I guess it was a fancy business date almost :) with awesome food & a slow dance.

We finished the night giving hugs to the bride and groom and grabbing a red velvet cupcake topped with cream cheese icing (shown in picture, minus icing that I devoured immediately).  Then left and drove home in the pouring rain, crawled in bed & passed out.
