I'm so glad its Friday. It's been a long week. This weekend should be pretty cool. I'm going to my friends wedding on Saturday, and then NOTHING! I really like doing nothing on my weekends. I think that's what weekends are made for. I also think we should have a 2 day work week, and a 5 day weekend but i don't think I'm the only one who feels that way.

So here's the random link for this Friday. I really really like this website. Some of the items are really funny, and some are just cute, but all are great!


So, I'm going to be really busy for the next 4 weekends! This is pretty rare for me, because as I mentioned earlier, I really like doing nothing on my weekends. This weekend is the Wedding. Next weekend is Wayne's Halloween Party. The weekend after that is Halloween, and then on the 4th weekend I will be in LAS VEGAS! I reiterate the need and excitement I have for my trip (please see last blog)!!! I'M READY!!!! Wow, I just had a Spongebob flash. Ewe. I love Spongebob, but I don't like to think abut him at 8:30 AM. Or anytime I'm not watching him on TV.

Work has been really slow. It makes me lazy. Yesterday, I had a crazy person on the phone. It was entertaining for a minute, and then I was over it. I hate it when work is slow. It makes my day soooooo much longer then it really needs to be. I will probably have to create some stuff to do so that I don't go crazy waiting for 5:00 PM to come. Yea for Cold Calling! BLEH!

So I'm ready for the election to be over and done with. I know who I'm going to Vote for and I'm just ready to do it. I'm really tired of seeing all of these attack ads on the TV, too. I think that every other commercial is something negative about someone. I hate that. I also just heard his clip from the Howard Stern Show this morning about Barack Obama. Sterns guy was interviewing people in Harlem about there preference for Obama or McCain. All 3 of them said they were Obama supporters. So the interviewer asked them some questions on why they support Obama, then he replaced Obama policies with McCain's. NONE of them knew the difference! They had no clue what Obama or McCain's policies were. This makes me sad. If you are going to vote, I really think you should know what you are voting for! Make an informed decision people! I know it's confusing, but there are ways to find out what each candidate is for and the policies they are supposedly going to implement!

I just heard the phrase Rosta Nipples! ROSTA NIPPLES!!! What a neat phrase!!!

Anyway, enough about the politics.

I really have no idea what I'm going to wear to this wedding this weekend. Ah, such a dilemma! I have 2 dresses I'm trying to choose from. I really want to wear the more formal one, but my husband will look very under dressed if I do. So I think I'm going with the less formal one. It's pretty cute. I haven't worn in for about 3 years, so I'm hoping it will still fit! It's supposed to be really nice this weekend, so it will be perfect.

I'm listening to the radio right now and they are discussing sex in the workplace. I can't believe the amount of people who have had sex while they were supposed to be working! I've never even thought about doing that anywhere near work! Maybe I'm just boring, but I just don't think that would be very sexy at all. I suppose that it would all depend on the situation though. Plus, I've been married for 4 years, so I'm sure I've gotten a little safe, too!

Well, I hope you enjoy the link, and my rambling. Off to work I force myself to go!

-See ya, wouldn't want to be ya! (just kidding:)

Come on Vacation

The countdown begins! I may even put a countdown gadget on my site!

Leaving for VEGAS in........

I really can't wait to go. (I love that phrase "Can't Wait", well guess what... YOU GOTTA WAIT!)

We got a SMOKIN deal at the Gold Coast for when we go. $53/night!!! FABULOUS!!!! It's not on the strip, but it is across from The Palms. I haven't ever been to the Palms, so it's going to be DOUBLE COOL. Our hotel looks pretty nice too. They even have a bowling alley!
Check it out!

I like the players card they have too. It's a tiered card. $1.00 in play = 1 Point. You earn 20,000 points (or spend $20,000) in 90 DAYS then you graduate from the RUBY CARD to the SAPPHIRE card! With the SAPPHIRE card you get 2 points for every $1.00 played. Then if you earn 125,000 (or spend $125,000) w/in 90 DAYS you graduate to the EMERALD CARD! This card gives you 3 points for every $1.00 played!!!! What a STEAL!

I'm sure that most of the players cards are rated exactly like this one, but i don't think they spell it out like that for you. It just kinda blew me away that they want you to spend approx $125,000 in 90 days to get rewards for their hotels and shows! That's more than I make in a year! Guess I won't be getting any comps from any hotels any time soon! Comps are for RICH people! We are so backwards in this country.

I'm really just looking forward to WONDERFUL BUFFET FOOD! I LOVE Vegas Buffets. I think that's the only way to eat while you are there. Buffets are what MADE Vegas. Aside from mobsters, that is. My mom used to tell me stories of the $3.00 all-you-can-eat buffet. Old Vegas used to be all about the cheap buffet, never mind the occasional mob hit! But Still!! Gone are those good old days for a steak and lobster buffet for $5.00. Probably gone are the days of everyone getting food poisoning also, though! I think I can pay $20 for a food poisoning-free buffet and still get my monies worth! I didn't get to go to a buffet the last time I went to Vegas. My BF Lindy and I went together and we didn't want to spend the money on the buffet so we were CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR FOOD. That was a horrible food weekend!!! We stayed somewhere where they only had one cafe, and we ended up waiting for like 20 MINUTES to get seated when both of us could see that there were EMPTY tables! So we decided to look for food elsewhere, and wandered around this other hotel and tried to eat there, but everything was WAY expensive! So we ended up eating a crappy pretzel in broken massage chairs, that were probably very unclean, in the middle of some passageway out of the hotel we were at. That was the worst food experience I have ever had in Vegas and I'll have to blame it all on not eating at the buffet! We didn't really have a choice that time as funds were very limited, but i don't think I'll ever do that again! Buffet all the way, baby!!!

I'm really really really ready for this vacation. Life is getting me down lately. I sound like a hippie when I say that, but it doesn't make it any less true. I'm FOR SURE ready for this Vegas trip! I'm ready to drink and smoke too much... oh wait, I already do that! So, i guess I'm ready to smoke ANYWHERE I WANT and not 20 ft. from the any entrance way with people looking at me like I have leprosy. I'm ready to drink ANYWHERE I WANT, even on the street! I'm ready to do some gambling and have my ass handed to me in the process. I'm ready to sleep in an uncomfy hotel bed and out the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door! I'm ready for VEGAS!!
Unfortunately, I have about 3 weeks until we go.... so being ready now does me no good. :) I do have 3 weekend full of stuff to do though, so hopefully that will make the time go by fast.

Great weather for Vegas! It's too soon to see what the actual forecast will be for when we go, but it seems like the average highes are in the lower 70's and the average lows are in the upper 40's. Record highs are in the upper 80's and record lows are in the upper 20's. I'm hoping the record highs will be more prevalent while we are there. I'm a wuss when it comes to cold. I'm an ARIZONAN! We get cold when it's 65 degrees out and cloudy! So I'm hoping it will be unseasonably warm that week.

To drive or to fly... that is the question! We can drive, but we have no idea what gas will cost at that time. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be quite a bit cheaper when we go, but we can fly for a guaranteed $286. That also means that we may have to pay for checked luggage, and then the taxi from the airport to the hotel, plus the parking fees at the airport. I'm pretty sure we are going to just drive because it's going to end up being cheaper in the long run. I really love to fly there though. It's just so nice to get there in 45 minutes. It's also really nice to get back in 45 minutes! The drive home is really the worst part of the trip. It always seems to take forever! *SIGH* I really like to pay for convenience, but this time it would take away from my gambling money. I'm pretty sure we are just going to drive.

So I'm sure you are going to hear a lot about my upcoming vacation in the next few weeks. I'll try to tone it down so you don;t get too jealous. LOL!

Bleh, Monday!

Wow, it was a busy Columbus Day! I'm just now getting time to update!

This weekend was a pretty good one. Went out on Friday with Jamie and Lindy to our neighborhood bar/club. Had a pretty good time, with exception of all of the douche bags that go there. Saturday night I didn't have to drive, so I got pretty snookered! We went to Dave and Busters for a friend's b-day party. They have this drink there called Walk the Plank. OMG SO GOOD and also SO DANGEROUS! It's got Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice, a splash of pomegranate syrup and Bacardi 151 on top. Very very tasty, and very very strong. I had 3 of those babies and had a really good buzz going on. By the time I got home, I was pretty drunk, and 4 Walk the Plank's deep. Like, drunk enough to take a tequila shot all by myself, drunk! :) I highly recommend a Dave & Busters Walk the plank. Just maybe only one! Anyway, so I had the shot and I made myself a Captain and Dr. Pepper and we went to sit out in front of the neighbors house. They had a fire going and were all sitting and chatting. It was pretty fun!!! They have a really nice iron stove thing, that is portable. I ended up being very drunk on Saturday and VERY hungover on Sunday. So I sat on the couch and caught up on shows that I have recorded. DVR IS THE BEST INVENTION EVER!

I hope everyone else's weekend was pleasant. I am going to my good friends wedding this Saturday, so I will be sure to have pictures of that to put up. I'm pretty excited about it. I just can't decide on what to wear..... Oh well, perhaps I'll save that debate for tomorrow's update.

-Make Love Not War, man.
