Brunette Moments?

So, you guys know I’m kind of ditzy right?  I say and do some really dumb shit, often.  Like that time I accidentally “liked” an ex-boyfriends relationship status change on Facebook.  That was embarrassing.  Oh, I never told you all about that?  It started innocently enough, I saw said ex-bf was now “in a relationship” and 8 people had “liked” the status. Obviously I wanted to see who had done so, but instead of clicking on “people who like this” I clicked “like”, and then there it was “Kelly McCormick and 8 others like this”.  FUCK!  After I recovered from my heart attack, I unliked the status immediately and began to wonder if ex-bf still got a notification about it.  If he did, he was kind enough to ignore it and not remark, but holy shit, did I feel like an asshole for a few days.

After I moved to Virginia in 2010, I noticed I was missing my favorite pair of Coach gold sandals when it came time to  bring out spring and summer clothes. I searched and searched, both in VA and PA, and after a year convinced myself that I had lost them.  Left them somewhere to never be recovered, probably at an ex-bf’s house where they may have been thrown away.  I sucked it up, bought some new sandals and moved on.  When I went up to PA two weeks ago, I was digging around in my closet hoping I’d maybe left some sneakers there so I could go to the gym with my sister, and what did I find?  The missing pair of gold Coach sandals, in a shoe box, in my closet.  Guess I never thought to search there.

Here they are, making an appearance with my new coral pants. Doesn't matter that it was 47 degrees out this morning.

My toes are bright orange and my nails sparkly blue.  Apparently I was feeling silly when I picked out my colors at the salon last night, or like a 6 year-old girl.  Whatever.  The eye-brows have also been tamed, and I’m nearly ready for Vegas.  Damn though, being a woman is expensive.  However, having freshly waxed eyebrows makes me feel like a brand new woman, so that’s worth the $15 or whatever I paid last night.  (So bad at paying attention to prices).

In fact, I recently inquired with some of my ladies as to what a normal price is for a large sectional sofa, as it occurred to me I really had no idea.  Apparently, the $5000 Crate and Barrel charges is not normal, go figure.  Darren will be happy to learn I’m trying to take lessons in bargain hunting and being frugal.

This post was really random, but it will probably (definitely) be my last one until Monday or Tuesday, unless I pay for wi-fi on the flight tomorrow,  but I’ll probably be too busy drinking with my roommates to do such a thing.  Wish me luck in Vegas, homegirl can’t drink like she used to!  Oh and Happy Happy 30th Birthday to my friend Michelle! Miss you!

Do You Like Me?

Some business to take car of off the bat this morning, happy birthday to my mom!  I hope you like the present Col and I got you, if not, there’s a gift receipt :).  Also, yesterday I finally took the plunge and created a Facebook page for the blog so love me/hate me/want more material to make fun of me for/whatever, can you all click HERE and “like” it so I don’t look like a loser?  I promise to try to keep it interesting and post things that you wouldn’t just see here or on Twitter.  Thanks friends!

After the craziness that went down at the end of the day on Monday, yesterday ended up being much more relaxing at work.  I finished everything I currently had to do by 10 am, and no other requests came in.  I like when that happens.  Since I wasn’t incredibly sore from Monday’s workout, I decided to actually get a run in yesterday at lunch.  I knew it was going to suck since it had been a little while since my last one, but I managed to do 3 miles in about 28 minutes.  I’m hoping to squeeze one more run in this week, we’ll see though.

Last night Adrienne and I watched season 1, disc 2, of Mad Men, and the more I watch the more my attraction to Jon Hamm is solidified.  And the desire to smoke and drink, they just make it look so good!  At least I can booze while watching without feeling too bad.  Seriously though, so sexy.

I wish I could get more than three episodes at a time, dear Netflix please hurry with the next disc.  Thanks!  The rest of the week isn’t looking to bad for once.  Tomorrow our whole Reg Affairs department has some team building event nonsense in DC which means an afternoon off work.  For me, it also means I’m “working from home” in the morning.  They were out of their minds if they thought I was going to drive to MD to work, get on a bus to DC, take a bus back to MD, and then drive back home to VA.  No thanks, I’ll meet everyone at the museum.  Cocktails and snacks take place around 2 pm and the day is over at 3:30.  Fantastic.

Friday I have my summer hours half day, followed by an immediate departure to the beach with the roommates.  We’re heading up to DE for a long weekend, three glorious nights of salty air and fun.  Just need to get through Wednesday.  Let’s hope it’s more like yesterday than Monday.  Have a lovely day!
