My boyfriend's back - again

My guy went to visit his folks again last Friday for a week. Prior to him leaving, I reminded him to make every effort to call me during his vacation so that I don't freak out like I did last time. He promised. Saturday rolled around and I did not hear from him. I was livid! I left a rather stern but diplomatic voicemail on his cell phone reminding him of what we agreed and what he promised. He called me later that night and called me every night since. My nervous breakdown was averted.

So now he comes back tonight. It's bittersweet. Don't get me wrong, I did miss my big lug, but at the same time I TRULY enjoyed having the king size bed all to myself. Sometimes it's nice to spend time away from your loved ones.

His flight is arriving late from Baltimore (his connection) to Phoenix due to thunderstorms there. Now I'm antsy for him to come home. :)

My Celebrity Look-a-likes

A meme suggested by the uber-fabulous Mr. Steve. I apologize for my two-day stubble (although I hear Michael Guy loves that! Here's to you Mr. Guy), but I just woke up and haven't put on my make-up yet.

One of life's lessons

Lesson learned: Do NOT ever burn any bridges or upset any people (especially in a work setting) as you never know when you may need their help in the future.

Apparently I'm Neurotic

So Steve (aka Deviou Steve-O) posted a personality quiz for all of us to partake in. I normally love these quizzes, until today. When I found out that I'm apparently neurotic. Click on it for a detailed report. The sad part is that it's 99.9% true. Please don't hate me because I'm neurotic.

Jared Leto

WTF happened to this guy?!?! He used to be so cute, now he's just Marilyn Manson-weird. I'll let you be the judge.

Jared Leto, circa 1999

Jared Leto NOW

I have to admit the music from his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, isn't half bad. I just miss the clean cut Jared that's all.

Le sigh.

Oh! My! God!!!! They are remaking John Water's 1988 "Hairspray" movie! I LOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVEEEEEE that movie!!!!!! I am SO going to drag (literally) Brian to this and be the first in line for tickets when this movie comes out! I may have to use a tranquilizer dart on Brian for him to come along. He's such a football-watching-manly-man that I doubt he'll come along willingly.

I wonder who's going to play the Beatnik Chick that Pia Zadora played in the original movie? I loves me some Pia, too. She's so groovy, dig man!

We're back.

Ok so we've been back for several days now. Never fails, when I take a vacation I always return hitting the ground running. Talk about a busy fast week. I'm finally catching my breath.

I was biting my nails on our way to visit and introducing Brian to my family. The drive itself was soggy as it was raining the whole way there thanks to the remnants of Hurricane John. Was the non-stop rain and cloudy skies as sign of what's to come? Turns out, it wasn't. The visit couldn't have gone more smoothly. Brian was cool, calm and collected while I was chatting up a storm trying to fill in any potential awkward silences. I'm sure everybody knew I was shitting bricks as I was Ms. Chatty Cathy the whole time. Or they thought I wanted to be the center of attention. Bottom line, Brian loved the family and the family loved him. So much so the family and Brian have been asking when we are going back for another visit. We shall see. For now, back to my boring life as an Accountant and housewife.

Belated Life Path Number

I'm a little late in posting my life path number as Michael Guy began. So sue me.

Your Life Path Number is 9

Your purpose in life is to make the world better

You are very socially conscious and a total idealist.
You think there are many things wrong with the world, and you want to fix them.
You have a big idea of how to world could be, and you'll sacrifice almost anything to work towards this dream.

In love, you can easily see the beauty in someone else. And you never cling too tightly.

You are capable of great love, but it's hard for you to focus your love on one person or relationship.
You have a lot of outward focus, and you tend to blame the world for your failures.
You are often disappointed by the realities of life - it's hard for you to accept the shortcomings of the world.

The crazy thing is that it's all true!!!! *Cue Twilight Zone music*

Unofficial End of Summer

So it's Labor Day weekend. The unofficial end of summer. Boy time flies! Brian and I haven't really done much in terms of excitement this summer. We both have been working our fingers to the bone which is followed by exhaustion which is then followed by sleeping 12-13 hours when we have a day off. This weekend we are heading out to visit my family and to introduce Brian to them. I have to admit, I am a little nervous as there is always some sort of awkwardness involved when having a conversation with a stranger which I'm sure my family will be feeling. I feel the pressure is upon me to be the "middle man" and keep everybody in a conversing jolly mood. We'll see how it all goes.
