We are in the home stretch of 2008. Time to rally huh? This also marks the start of the cliched resolutions. Every year I usually to the same resolutions, and every year I decided that resolutions are stupid and asinine and dumb. (this usually happens on Jan 2.) Every year I vow to loose weight, I actually did that this year, a couple of times. I know...pat on the back. Last year I had a new one, that I will again adopt for this year. Let it be. Yup, mind blowing huh? I vow to just let things be. To live in the now. Can't dwell on the past, have to learn from it and move on. Don't force things because if it's meant to be it will be.
The end of the year is like Lent for Catholics. Quick, do everything you're not supposed to be doing, and do it in abundance because Jan 1 is a clean slate! This New Years I'm going to go Hog Wild. I'm going to drink more than just 2 glasses of wine, maybe take a shot? Who knows. And for the new year, I will actually fold and put away the laundry instead of living out of the clean clothes basket for a week. Maybe I will put the clean dishes away instead of pulling them out of the dishwasher until I have to use it again. Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves...

Those words have become my mantra the past few weeks. I stubbed my toe "everything happens for a reason" Maybe that happened to teach be to watch where the heck I'm going. I got a speeding ticket "everything happens for a reason" That was most likely to teach me that cops suck and they are all out to get me.
I find these words comforting when dealing with a recent break up. It doesn't change anything, or make anything easier, it does force me to think about what I'm supposed to learn from it. My conclusion...boys suck! Most boys suck. My latest, did not suck. Which is a new phenomenon for me. The vast majority of my breakups were causes by two actions.
1. They cheated
2. They were a total asshole.
This break up (as far as I know) was based on timing, career, distance, and the future. All things that are completely out of my control. Which makes it even crappier. I was forced to delete said ex out of my phone for fear of calling or texting him in a moment of drunken weakness. *Never a good idea* I deleted my myspace and facebook pages to regain a little bit of my privacy back. (blogs don't count)
While he is dealing with his own career struggles, it brings up career struggles of my own. "What am I doing? Where am I supposed to be? Am I doing what's best for me and my son?" UGH. Stuff that was perfectly fine pushed way down inside me with no chance of coming out and having to be dealt with. BOOOO!
Things I thought were fine in my world, are now brought to the forefront for me to meditate on. "Am I really happy living where I am? Would moving have really been that bad?" Lot's to think about, nothing to worry about. It is what it is. If it's meant to be, it will be. All personal favorites in dealing with stuff too heavy to really "deal" with. So, I'm left with everything happens for a reason. I'm still trying to figure out the reason behind this...

Call me Oprah...actually...don't. But around this festive holiday time of year. I like to make a list of things I can't live without. I'm secretly hoping that everyone I love and or tolerate, will shower me with all these amazing things I "need". And every single year, I'm gravely disappointed. Alas cyber world, you will all know my hearts greatest desires.

1. A Roomba! I mean come on! A vacuum that does it's job while you're away! For those of you who really know me, you all know that cleaning is not one of the things I covet. So, why not make it easier for me!?

2. Blowfish Wildlife boot in Black! They are currently $109 at the Blowfish Malibu shoe site...just a thought.

3. Miz Mooz Jessy Boot in Black! They are on sale at Nordstrom, go hog wild.

4. A new set of skis! Preferably K2! I promise, once I get these I will ski my ass off! Seriously

5. With those skis, I will need all the super hardcore skier accessories IE. pants, coat, mittens, goggles, maybe a cute hat. We'll talk.

6. Camo Uggs! Seriously, who doesn't need a pair of Uggs that conceal the whereabouts of your feet?

7. The new Coach Graffiti Tote in White! It's been so long since I've had a new Coach bag! I need one! (really whiny voice)

8. A few new pairs of Jeans, I LOVE Seven for all Mankind Boot cut! Since I'm losing all this weight, I'll need to replace my current pairs. (all braggy braggy) True Religion "Joey" stretch jeans! Hudsen Jeans Triangle pocket boot cut stretch jeans (Scorpio). Love them All!!!

9. Soy Mate Lattes! It's a sad day, when I have to go a day without one!

10. Brand new Audi A4 3.2 FSI Prestige Quattro in Phantom Black with Black leather interior, Walnut wood decorative in lays and the 19'' spot biggie.

For now, that's enough things I covet. I'm sure there will be more!

I've found my Calling

Improv Theatre! Yup, you heard me right. We had our office Christmas Party last Saturday, and the Up Front Theatre Improv group was there to entertain. And Entertain they did!! After a few skits, the actors thought it would be fitting to call up some volunteers. My table (bastards) thought it would be brilliantly hilarious to nominate me! (see, I told you they were bastards).

This is me, with my human doll. Basically, me and another agent had to use the actors as our dolls, they spoke, but we had to move their limbs. We had to act like we were playing a tennis match.

Hilarity ensued.
