Wow! I felt so inspired when Wosy told me she'd come back to bloggie land. It's been so long since I've been here as well..... I have that feeling that you get when after a few years you decide to strike out and drive to the old 'stomping grounds'. You know, those old familiar streets lined with the same old tired houses with the same old couples sitting on the front porches sipping iced tea in the summer time. Ok, ok.... so maybe that's a southern thing. But thinking about it I really can see the country roads lined with dried out corn fields and tobacco plants ready to be taken in. GAH! I am such a country girl.
So anyways, what's been going on?!! I miss the old peeps; I do. I've been working at my friend's video store that she bought in May. It's taking some serious time and work to get it organized but I think she'll be ok. Yeah, yeah I admit it has given me a reason somewhat to stall again from putting in resumes at the medical places. I just don't know if I'm ready for that yet, tho I printed out some last night and am dropping some off in the morning. We'll see what the cosmos has in store for me.
Oh! Funny thing happened; two weeks ago I won free tickets to a Train concert. On the way to work I was listening to the radio and the guy was saying, be the 6th caller to win (at the time I didn't even know what the prize was). So the thought goes through my mind, call... just for shits and giggles! So I picked up the cellie..... dialed the number....... and all I can hear is heavy fucking static. STATIC! You know, like the kind where whenever anyone on the other end speaks it sounds like someone underwater yelling through a microphone. So I turn up the radio thinking, hell no......... he just didnt' answer my call. Sure enough; I hear myself on the radio say "Alright!" (I said it to test if it was really me; man did I feel like an idiot doing that.) So here I am trying to answer the guy's questions, which I could not hear at ALL over the phone but which I could barely hear bits and pieces of on the radio (which I couldn't turn up cuz it would make the phone squelch). Ugh. I sounded like a complete drunken ass. But hey! I got free tickets woohooo!
The concert was pretty good. I haven't been to a concert in sooooooo long. I think it's sort of a passing teenage fad to a degree. That, and well.... who wants to pay almost 100 bucks for 3 hours of entertainment? Not me, that's who. Leave it to the preppies who can afford it. heh.
In other news, I'm so proud of my whore for sticking with the gym! YOU GO GIRL!!! Damn yo, I wish we lived closer. I so need to take my fat ass up there with you and blubbercize. hehe. We have been walking a good bit tho and things are starting to really get better again. My little weight loss group and I have started some really awesome projects that have been inspiring us to do better and also it's really help to improve our personal attitudes about things in general. So I'm glad of that. And it's great fun to get together so much and do things together. :)
OH OH OH the big news......... one of my VERY GOOD friends from Australia is coming to visit in October! I'm so excited for her...... the first trip to the states and she's going to be meeting a LOT of people that really care about her. She's the best, seriously... and yeah, I can't wait to torture her with all of our deep southern ways hehehe. She's gonna think we're all bonkers for sure. And oh my god people, she is one of the absolute funniest people I've ever met. Which is, of course, why we get along so well. Insanity is contagious I think. Ok, that's all for now. Try to be back sooner, I promise!
