Went to Leavenworth today and these things CRACKED ME UP.

Saturday, August 29, 2009

What a great day! The weather was perfect - upper 70's - and much fun was had. Went to breakfast, went to a movie (Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 AWESOME btw...), and went to Ray's Boathouse at Shilshole Bay in Seattle for dinner. YUM. I had grilled jumbo Gulf prawns over polenta with spinach, cherry tomatoes shaved parmesan and a hint of citrus vinaigrette. Shared a decedent chocolate dessert. Caught a bit of the sunset after dinner walking on the dock.

Tomorrow will be a day spent at my pad with a request for my "badass" kabobs.

So I have a friend coming to visit tomorrow! Yay! I'm taking Friday and Monday off. Don't know exactly everything we are doing yet - but I know it will involve food, drink and other fun. I have to refrain from posting too much about it on the internet because some people are sensitive to that, but I'll try.

In other news, my co-workers are evil. They do many evil pranks. I seem to attract this behavior. I called in "late" the other day due to a migraine headache. I left a voicemail with my boss and emailed my office roommate. (Who is the evilest one of all...let's call her "R") Once I was on my way, I texted "R" to let her know I would be there soon and to let our boss know because I hadn't spoken to her yet - she wasn't answering her phone. A little while later she texted me back and said our boss had not received my message and was furious with me. I almost had a heart attack on the 405 freeway. Several minutes later I get a LOL text. Bitch. Now I need to get even...

Here is the sectional I like, and my new Cheetah shoes! I didn't go for the pumps - these are more practical, but I DID get the hot pink patent pumps! Pics later. I should rename this blog to 'feet and shoes' huh? Geeeez. I can't help it.

You all know I'm a little different, right? Well, I now have some of my favorite horror film movie posters framed and hung in my hallway. Still need The Exorcist and Texas Chainsaw Massacre the original. My decorating is a bit eclectic. I have the 'Tuscany' theme in the kitchen almost done except I want stainless steel appliances, and next is the bedroom. Don't know what I'm doing in there yet. I have my red sheets/duvee, but not sure about the rest. I am also searching for the perfect sectional w/leopard pillows. (I posted a pic earlier in the month I think). Then of course I'll need a 50 inch plasma on the wall to complete my media room. I want to get rid of the furniture in there and have it be all couch/TV. Shit, I need a raise. Maybe I'll get that Supervisor promotion...need, need, I NEED!

I'm not all that "girly" with my decorating am I? LOL

Well it was inevitable. I hurt myself. SOMEHOW I have sprained my thumb/hand and it hurts like hell. When I couldn't open my "Pub Mix" snack jar this morning, I roamed the halls at work looking for a big strong man to help me. Found one! I'm sure I looked like a full-on retard carrying around the huge tube I bought from Costco - although that is nothing new for anyone here that knows me. I'm happy now. I had my protein shake on the way to work, and now I have my pretzel/rice cracker/etc. mix and beef jerky handy with my gallon of water so I don't inadvertantly pig out on cookies/donuts/potato chips and what-not.

It is upper-body day at the gym, but with my injury I may have to switch to lower-body, and just do kicks tonight instead of punches.

Making eggs benedict.

First of all, it's a cinch. I made myself some this morning - I have to eat breakfast now to rev up my metabolism. Yeah I know its not eggwhites and broccoli, but I have to eat TASTY food or there is no point in living. Balance. It is all about balance.

First, boil your eggs in this little contraption. (I'm super technical). Then, toast your english muffins and warm up some Canadian bacon. Make your hollandaise sauce (from package - or scratch) then pop the eggs on the muffins, pour the sauce over top and finish with a little paprika and parsely. NUMMERS! I also had this little natural fruit drink thingee.

Now I'm going to go kickbox.

I'm an asshole.

I love Denis Leary. Such a catchy little tune. I'm mumbling "I'm an tee da la tee da...I'm an asshole.." pacing around the house at 1 am. Listen to it, you'll see what I mean.

The Costco cart has changed a bit. Instead of chocolate cake, I'm getting Zone protein bars, and instead of getting an iced mocha every morning, I bought some protein shakes. That'll kill some calories and feed my muscles! I'm getting serious. No more messing around with flab, damnit!

I keep winning the front desk flower bouquets at work (they have a drawing every Friday). People are getting suspiscious I have a secret admirer. Hehe...

My new cute sandals! You can't tell from the awkward pic, but they are kitten heels. It hurt to walk in them today. See below.
Well, I could sit here and whine and complain about how I can't walk, or sit down, or move in general, but nah. You guys are constantly hearing me complain, so I won't tell you about my ab pain from crunches, or about how when I move my arms I wince, or about falling onto the surface I am about to sit on because my quad muscles fail. I really want to put on Ben Gay, but I hate the smell and you CANNOT get it off of you! I refuse to go to work like that. Gotta smell pretty at work. Gotta smell pretty all the time. Note to self: Throw Ben Gay out.

Work is work, sleep is sleep and pain is pain. That's it. I have a friend coming to visit for a week next Friday, so that will be great fun, but until then it's all about getting an iron-ass. It better be worth it. I'm just sayin'.

O.M.G. I am going to DIE. Started lifting weights again on Monday. I did squats and lunges today and I am sore ALREADY. Those of you who workout know what that means. It means the next two days will SUCK. Big time. I have ice on my thighs (quads) right now. OW. I may have overdone it. A tad.

Behold the parking spot! The elevator is only 20 feet away! I feel spoiled. Executive by day, badass by night!

The only pic I took at the bbq...sorry, I was preoccupied. ;-) They have a firepit in their backyard - I felt like I was camping! I want one now. Holy crap, I didn't get home until 4 am. Don't do THAT very often!! It kicked my ass.

Saturday, August 15, 2009

OK I didn't take a pic of my parking space. I forgot. But don't worry, I'll do it on Monday - I know how much you are dying to see it. HA.

I'm on my way to a BBQ all the way down at Bonney Lake, which is a few hours from my house. I should have some pics from that or at least some good stories. For now, here is uncaffeinated Crazydogmama.

Thursday, August 13, 2009

OK, so my week has been weak. The highlight so far is finally getting a parking space under my building! WOOT! I have been on the waiting list since I started there - which was 6 months ago. I get to take an elevator straight up to my office now! No more walking 50 miles in inclimate weather from the stinky, dark and creepy public parking hole! I can wear pumps to work! My hair won't go flat! WEEEEEE!

Well, it is exciting to me, damnit.

I will take a picture of my parking spot tomorrow in all of it's glorious presence.

I'm feeling really run down. So tired. I come home from work and almost immediately fall asleep, and I sleep a LOT on the weekends. I'm not getting things done that I need to get done. I don't feel especially depressed, I don't really feel anything at all. Not sure what to do.

Sunday, August 09, 2009

OK I'm back in the loop - thanks guys!

I have a need to know what is going on. I'm rather tenacious about getting answers sometimes.

True Blood and other fun things.

Sexy Bill and Sookie. Love on the kitchen counter ~ hot!

In other news, I broke down and got the pups professionally groomed, but they were so badly overgrown and matted that they had to buzz cut my poor babies! They look, well, not so much like Cairn Terriers right now. More like coyotes. LOL The groomer felt bad that she had to cut them so short that she gave me a discount. At least they are cool now for the heat wave! They are also aerodynamic.

My lawn is completely dead. Brown and DEAD. I guess I'll have to hire a gardner. Sigh.
