I really like the Mother of the Groom outfit and the cute but sensible shoes. I've been having foot pain like no one's business lately but thankfully, according to the doctor, there's no reason for it. I'm now armed with arch support and anti inflammatory meds and I feel like an old woman.
I started my santa fic today as part of my "you can't change what you don't acknowledge-follow through on commitments" philosophy. I'm quite pleased with my bunny for this fic; it's cuddly with just the right dash of brooding and angst.
Someone call in the fashion police, please!
Bed now; voting early tomorrow. Tomorrow night no one will sleep.
Last night's experiment with Angel on the backs of the knees went so well that I'm trying it on the insides of my elbows today. The bottle really is too adorable for me to hate this fragrance. Rain outside, blankets inside, my dog at my feet, books, perfume and dvds; I may never work again!
- The Britney meltdown watch was top story on three news channels. The bombings in India were only on the BBC.
- My cousin's birthday was on the 14th, my deceased grandfather's on the 18th, another cousin's is tomorrow and mine is the 28th; that's a lot of e-cards.
- No work, Carnival time; I have flu anyway.
- Chatrooms breed drama without even trying.
Started with: Underworld
Next: Underworld Evolution
If there's time I may watch "The Breed" or "Dracula 2000." My collection could really stand some updating.
My boss, the director, has a workshop tomorrow and can't chair the meeting. You'd think six managers and a few co-ordinators could hammer out a strat plan on their own, yes? Wrong! With no one above them to keep them on track they'll be whining about current issues in the department instead of working out what we're going to do long term. Current issues are important but the strat plan is due on May 19th; the lowly co-ordinators, myself included, have to put it together before then and get the director to vett it. We'll be scrambling to finish like last year because the managers believe that sort of thing isn't their job. How the hell can planning and budgeting for one's own department not be part of a manager's job? Feh, I say! Feh!
I have no opinions on the Serie A title race or the evil scandal. As for Sheva...if he wants to go then let him go, for a top price and no exchanges. It's Jaap and Rui I'm going to miss. * clings *
That should be enough bitching for one night.
And it's Lyon, y'all. I thought it would be them when I saw all the results this week and, lo, I was right! I am amazing! Well, maybe not amazing but I'm currently the only woman in the office under 35 who isn't being a complete drama llama.
I need footballing buddies in RL; I've been dying to talk about the draw all day :(
T'dad & Tobago 2 - Iceland 0.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I believe I replied to all the lovely posts but if I missed one please thump me because my brain is wee and it has been HOT today.

At super_em 's command. At least the music memes are farking easy. List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

I haven't uploaded the music cuz I'm lazy! I won't tag because I think everyone has already done this meme; I'm always so late with these things.
I have a very tiny mint garden that I took very crappy digital pics (also unuploaded (new word)) I have regular mint, chocolate mint and orange mint and I'm very proud! I'll post the pics tomorrow.
In the meantime let's talk about Milan! So amazing against Fener and kudos to the Fener fans for applauding Sheva the great. It was such a lighthearted game; even Rui took getting half stripped in stride. Paolo played with a black eye and looked hot despite it. He had to do extra cuddling of Sheva since Kaka wasn't there to help out.

I hope my boss is as unobservant as most men then he won't notice my hair and eyebrows have been done after I called in sick. Sometimes you just need a mental health day.
Rita has become a monster over the ocean! There is reason to believe that Houston won't take a direct hit though and I'm glad because I have family there. I'm also guilty because that means another city will be devastated. It's frightening to think that there are two more months of the hurricane season to go. I think it will get progressively worse with the passing years. In twenty years living in Florida will just be some quaint little thing our ancestors used to do.
I updated my user info, polished nails read The Tell-Tale Heart and texted friend for her birthday. I'm so lazy it scares me. That story always makes my blood run cold; I keep imagining the old man shivering in the dark, knowing something embodying all his fears was in the room with him.
We just had a mini storm with an innordinate amount of thunder. Surprisingly, the rain poured down afterward; it rarely rains heavily here when the thunder shows off. It made me restless and this is bad because I need to work on some notes for a meeting on Tuesday. The thunder's still rattling around and poor Azzurri is camped under the bed.
I was going through my old files the other day and I found some images of Alice Aycock's and Judy Chicago's work.
