S&G 1

(no subject)

He left his guitar at my apartment this morning. (He didn't get to play for me last night - we were so tired...) I might play with it when I get home so I can learn chords. (But then would it be so romantic when he played it for me? :)

As I was typing just now, I got a dizzy spell again. I hate that. Grandma said she's gotten tests done because she has the same thing and the doctors don't know what's wrong. So I figure I've got the same thing. Weird.

This weekend:
I got my eyes checked. Well, that happened on Friday, but it was still technically my weekend since it was after work. They did the dilation test. My eyes hurt until I went to sleep that night. But I got to Greyhound OK despite the pedestrian traffic around PGE Park right after the ball game. I squinted all the way to Corvallis. We went to Big River for steak and lamb and the best squash ever. Mmmmmm. Squash.

Saturday we went to Albany to look for frames. We found some I liked, but I didn't get them because they were WAY expensive. So I guess this Saturday we'll go back to my optometrist and look at their small but very cheap frame selection. And then I'll have to wait another week or two for them to make them for me. Or whatever they do. Anyway, we looked at clothes and I exercised self-control (yay, me!) and then bought Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit, which we played that night after we cleaned Cory's car and saw "Panic Room" (which I recommend).

Sunday we played at Grandma's house and ate pork and chocolate (but not together). We were winning at Monopoly until Cory traded our yellow and green properties for their purple and orange ones. We had all hotels and they just had houses but we still had to pay them twice the rent they had to pay us. So if my cousin Taryn didn't get bored so quickly, we would have lost anyway. Oh well.

Haley, THANKS for the TV!!! It works so well! No more forced WB/TBN-viewing! Yaaaaaay!

So much of my week this week depends on other people having things for me to do. Look at it now, not even through Monday and I can't find anyone. Here's what I've done so far today.

*Distributed tri-fold phone list to everyone in the office
*Updated the receptionists' reference books (all but printed the pages)
*Cut and pasted fabric swatches on tech scheches for the SMU team
*Filed some stuff for SMU
*Put away a TON of mail in the mailroom (it's the beginning of the month - time for junk mail!)

If it wasn't lunchtime, I'm sure I'd have something to do by now. SMU is done with me for the day, and PR/Promotions aren't answering their phones so I have to wait until they get back to have them start me on another project. I have a feeling that by Friday I'll be extra bored. Here's hoping Debbie doesn't start breathing down my neck. Maybe I can sneak out early or something.

I guess I could update the phone card spreadsheet, but that would require going all the way up to the mailroom. Maybe I'll do it at 2 when I know Nan isn't going to be in there. She always tells me she doesn't need my help because I'll be making it so she has nothing to do for the rest of the afternoon, and then she tells everyone else how she has to run around like a chicken with her head cut off and I won't help her. Doesn't bother me if she makes extra work for herself. It's her own fault. (Earlier today she mentioned something to the effect of "work never goes home with me" and I wished that she'd decide to quit... of course then they'd make me do mailroom until they found someone else - unless *I* was the someone else. Ack!)

I emailed Mike's cousin Steve to wish him and his wife a happy first anniversary. He wrote back, and let me know how things were going in Minnesota. He didn't have any more info on Mike except that he's dropped off the face of the earth (which I doubt his creditors'd agree with) and he's living in St. Louis. I already knew all that. (Does it sound like I'm hunting around for gossip about Mike? I'm not... I was just trying to make conversation since I don't know Steve all that well... and even though I don't love or even really like Mike anymore, it's still interesting to hear what he's doing. Mostly because he's shooting himself in the foot and it's amusing.)

More people should update in the daytime when I have all this extra time to read my friends' page.

When I get home, I'm going to see what's on OPB! Yay!

Haley, where are you?
