travel blog 2

March 12, 2008

There’s lots to say about what’s going on, but I’m not quite ready to write about that yet. I will say, the view is pretty nice from my room:

It’s balmy and breezy out…and quite nice. I took a little walk after dinner and saw a very odd large bird with a long neck that kind of came out of nowhere and scared the crap out of me.

There is a Jamba Juice and free wi-fi in the Charlotte NC airport.

I could live here.


one of the gayest things ever

March 9, 2008

Is playing American Idol on the Wii.

It is also one of the most fun things ever.

Especially after a few glasses of wine.

I invite you all to come and play. Especially JB.

Ok, so I’m not that desperate however I will be on a work related trip to West Palm Beach Florida next week. I’m told I’ll have quite a bit of free time on one of my evenings there – anyone out there around for a drink, or know of cool places to go (alone, and not familiar with) in WPB?


i am so fracked

March 5, 2008

I’ll let you in on a little secret – I’ve been regularly working out again. Usually I’ll run/powerwalk for 1/2 hour a day. Mostly this has been from 7:30-8pm. During Jeopardy. When the show is on I’ll walk as fast as I can while still being able to read and answer the clues. When the show is at the interviews or commercials, I’ll run.

Tonight we had dinner plans with friends but I still wanted my workout and really wanted to see if I could do it in the morning instead, so I got up and did my work out early. What did I entertain myself with? The infomercial for the “silver bullet” food chopping extravaganza. I kind of want one (but not for real, so no one get it for me, kay? Like the Cri-cut paper cutter it’s just something I want to fantasize about but not really own) and enjoy this infomercial. I’ve watched it a bunch of times and I still find it amazing.

I walked during the in-kitchen demonstration and ran during the commercial part – which is about 7 minutes long. It was a great work out.

I hope there’s a good one on tomorrow. What’s your favorite infomercial*??

*Late night sex toy home shopping doesn’t count.


plus side?

The only good thing, if you can even call it that, about the IVF cycle from last year is the significant tax refund I’m getting this year.

Though, if there was a baby coming in 8 weeks it probably would feel a lot better. Mostly it just feels like failure and uncertainty about the future.


the simple girl buys what she’s told to buy

March 2, 2008

Did I mention that my computer died like a month ago? Yeah. It was sadness. And I’m an apple girl. And they’re expensive. And well…I was patient and cautious and didn’t jump in the car and drive to the nearest Apple store (in New Hampshire) and so I waited and waited and well, turns out that Apple JUST updated all of their MacBooks and now I have one that is better than one that would have cost me a lot more money two weeks ago. I’m pretty excited about this and amazed that the FIRST time ever that I have exercised restraint yielded such amazing results.

Would you believe that I’ve actually never purchased a new computer before? When I was in college they had enough labs all over campus to keep me totally satisfied with access. After college, I bought (for $100) a old laptop from 1/2 of the Frankenbaby family. Then I used my x’s pc for years. Then I used my family computer for a while. Then we didn’t have a computer and I went to the library. And then I bought (for another $100) my friends Apple PowerBook G3 Pismo. And I was in love. And the thing was like 6 years old but it had the first edition of Airport so I could connect and surf and upload (slowly) and be happy. So today was a BIG purchase for me!

Now, whoever can help me figure out how to make wordpress as easy on this computer as it has been on pc’s (with easy click to link/photo buttons, etc) will win a prize. I’m guessing it will be Cali because she’s a Appleophile too, but, you know it could be any one of you.

Expect more posts now (I say that but you know, I may still be somewhat lazy) that I have my own machine.
