The last couple of weeks have been a bit of a blur. I've tried to stay up to date on twitter and the blog, more for me keeping a record of all the fun I'm having than to show you what's going on. I enjoy going back in my archives and seeing these events again through the writing.
So if you couldn't tell, I've gotten a little addicted to True Blood. I borrowed season 1 on bluray from Scott, and finished it in about 3 days. I then downloaded season 2 and I'm on way through it. Man, the show is intense. And the emotions are just overwhelming. I just intensely love a show that can get my heart beating in one instance, and then get me to tears in another. Am I having a hotflash? Phew. Season 2 just finished up a couple days ago, so I look forward to going through them all and not having to wait on a weekly schedule like a sucker.
I've actually had a pretty good run at work for the last couple of weeks. I guess vacation was EXACTLY what I needed to recharge. I was getting a bit burnt out. Stressing and thoughts of other options... have now all bud faded. And my new office! I love it. I've really settled in and have got everything as I want it. Plus I was able to adopt another plant. I didn't think it would work with only one window, but the plants look good spread out, and so far, they like it in the lower light. I was also able to scrounge up some furniture and supplies from a storage room, so I really feel all professional and adult like now. I guess it's time. I am 28.
I know I touched on my birthday party already, but let me reiterate how much fun I had. The whole process of getting things together, planning the HUGE menu with my coworkers Crystal and Jess, shopping, cleaning, buying new decorations, doing handy work that I've put off, restarting my fishtank, setting up my new birdcage, getting people on the evite, obsessively checking the evite for funny responses:
Michael Frank (07/30)And many more funny responses. Everyone has said they had a lot of fun, and leftovers were by far my favorite part of bday part 2. Plus, my boss threw me a cheese, pepperoni and cupcake party at work. An unexpected but very much appreciated event. This year was definitely a great birthday year.
Lucky is genuinely hurt. She cried herself to sleep last night saying "I thought what Luke and I had was special"... thanks for making her feel like just another dog... and to string her along on the couch like that last night, well you should be ashamed.
I'm in. But tell me, Luke, which Jim DeLucia did you invite? Is he a DDS? Did you invite my dentist?!
As long as the fire code allows that many people, I will be there. Thanks.

Hells yes we will be in attendance and as a bonus we'll bring the offspring so that she can show you her new tricks :)
I am also sorry Jacob will be there.
We had a little yard sale at my place this past weekend. I advertised on like 5 places, put up signs all around the neighborhood, but blah, it didn't work out. We only made about $50, and I think everyone spent at least that getting all the items to my place. We're gonna try again with what is left in September... but I ended up making something like $12... which basically went to pay for the admission into Jake's birthday. But today, Nola and I, along with some of my extended family, went to a giant annual church yard sale in Canadaigua. I did end up coming back with a ton of great stuff for my house, pets and kitchen. Always pleased with the outcome of the sale. Plus, we're always treated to brunch after, and my family ended up in tears laughing so hard. We're pretty funny people. And having the morning off from work was really nice. Made this day extremely short....
I suppose that is enough for now. I'm headed to Michael's house tonight for schlock night. We're watching Zombie, actually. I think like THE original zombie movie. The whole gang will be there, even though we've all been hanging out with each other a lot lately. It's kind of nice. Between random movie nights, schlock night, game night, and all these parties (mine, Jake's, housewarming, etc), we're saturating each other. But I can absorb it. They're good people.
