Ahhh yeah!

Ahhh yeah, Ivan’s coming back Monday night. I’m so excited!! I don’t know how I made it over 6 weeks without seeing him.. I’m surprised I didn’t go insane!! I wish Monday night was here now. I really can’t wait to see him.

I try to keep myself as busy as possible on the weekends. On Friday, I went to the Grand Lux Cafe with Alisa and her co-workers. I had the biggest chicken pot pie ever. I swear the diameter of the bowl was 7 inches. It was pretty good. We also went to see Ray Romano and Kevin James. The show was pretty funny. Saturday night, I went bowling with some friends from work and some old goons. I bowled alright. After bowling, we ended up going to see Jay’s friend who’s in a band. Plan B was playing at the Cheyenne Saloon. They had a good rock sound to them. I kept spacing out though.. I really was in a daze just thinking about Ivan.

Thanksgiving is here on Thursday. I have to work until 3:30 pm. But, it’s great because I get time and a half if I work the holiday. I know it’s going to be slow anyway. It really slows down for us at Thanksgiving… and then we don’t pick up until about New Year’s Eve. I’m looking forward to the slow time but sometimes it gets really boring.

Yes, I’m still here…

I haven’t posted anything lately. Sorry about that! I switched to a morning shift with weekends off. It was a big change compared to my swing shift with Thursday and Friday off. It seems I do have alot more time to do things during the week now. It’s was a bit crazy at work with two big conventions. We had two very hectic weeks. I recently trained to cover for my manager when he’s gone. I hope I am doing a good job. I was involved with some office politics. But, there’s another guy who has been trained to cover as well. Thank goodness it all got resolved.

I just turned 31 and I’m not sure if I really do feel older. I didn’t even want to really do anything to celebrate though. My boyfriend and I just had a nice dinner together. I do still look young so that’s a plus. Thanks to my parents for my great genes. Hehe. I do feel some creaks in my bones though. I think I will have arthritis one day since my mom has it.

I started working out today. I was trying to like two months ago but then I stopped. The boyfriend and I are trying to do our best with working out. I got some Burn 60 at GNC and whey protein. He has some whey protein and some creatine drink. I’m going to try my hardest to stick to it. It’s great that I have somebody who will motivate me to keep up with it. I’ve always wanted to lose weight but of course laziness got the best of me. It’s not time to make excuses anymore. I’ve actually been eating better. Today, I walked a mile. I also did some sit-ups, push-ups and some arm exercises with 2 pound weights. I will have to buy heavier weights eventually.

Here’s a great weight loss motivational quote for the day:

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can’t, I give myself reasons why I can.

Evil Cold

I’m glad CES is over with. We were super busy at work. It has been so cold this week. We’ve been having a mild winter and then boom it’s freezing cold. It looks like it’s hitting everywhere though. I just wish it would be warmer again. Oh well. I couldn’t find thermals anywhere. Wal-mart and Target were both sold out. I was looking for a cheap bookshelf and the Wal-Mart I was at didn’t have it. So, we had to trek to the other Wal-Mart that we knew had the bookshelf. Good thing we went there.. they had some thermals there. They have some nice sleepwear thermals. I did grab a bag of thermals without looking at anything but the size. It turned out to be for boys. Heh. They were a bit snug for me. I like the regular thermals though because they go in at the bottom. So, it’s better to wear under pants. I still haven’t found any good gloves. I had the best Eddie Bauer gloves that were sooo soft. But, I lost one of them. I always seem to lose things. In the last couple years, it seems that I lose one of a pair. I also lost a beach sandal. It’s not a big loss there since they weren’t expensive. Anyway, I found some nice fleece gloves at Amazon that I’m going to buy.

The internet is evil. It seems to suck me in every time I use it at home. I think it’s because I always have e-mails to check, myspace and working on the blog. I always get trapped looking up something and then I don’t realize I’ve been on the computer for over an hour.

Updates

So, I’m back from a long absence. Sorry about that! I haven’t really been on as much I’d like to be. Work has been driving me crazy… but I’m still surviving.

*SPOILERS of Inuyasha if you haven’t been watching regularly*

I’ve been enjoying watch Inuyasha. I am sad that I’ll probably be seeing the ending of the series.. but I’m sure that won’t be until the end of the year or so. It’s funny how the title of the episode for this week was Final Battle at the Graveside! Sesshomaru Versus Inuyasha. But, Sesshomaru only smacks Inuyasha.. that was no battle.. come on! Naraku is still a loser.. I can’t wait until they defeat him. I don’t know who or whom will defeat him. Kagura seems to think it will be Sesshomaru. I think it may be a combination of people… since so many people want to see him dead. I guess I’ll have to wait to see! I still can’t believe Kikyo is back again. She’s just annoying. I know she has some kind of purpose being alive (well sort of).

I recently saw most of Hellsing again. Starz Action has Animidnight.. where they play anime movies and series Monday through Friday at midnight. If you haven’t seen Hellsing.. you should definately check it out. Alucard is just too cool. I love vampires and this series has some great fighting scenes. I’m not sure how it ended up being such a short series… it’s seriously that good! I haven’t been keeping up with buying the manga. I actually haven’t bought a manga in a long time.

Star Wars news… I saw on Dark Horizons that we can expect the animation series to come out in 2008 and the live action series not until 2010. Ooh pretty kewl! šŸ˜‰

Insanity

It’s been so freaking busy at work for a couple days. We have a big convention in town so it’s insane. I just had one of those weeks that makes you crazy.. and you need a few drinks to calm down. It does make the day go faster since you’re busy almost your whole shift.

And just because I want to kill somebody doesn’t mean to say that I will
And I don’t think that that makes me crazy and anyway I’m way past caring

That quote definately sums up my week.

I got some rum! It’s my favorite hard liquor. I got Captain Morgan’s Parrot Bay Passion Fruit. It had a great recipe on the back.

1.5 oz Captain Morgan’s Parrot Bay Passion Fruit Flavored Rum
3 oz Pineapple juice
splash of Grenadine

shake vigorously with ice, pour and enjoy!

I substituted the juice with pineapple and orange juice blend. I didn’t put grenadine either. It was very fruity and tastes great! It definately helped me forget my hard work day!
I’m glad Inuyasha is back with new episodes on Tuesdays night/Wednesday morning at 12:30 am. Also, Battlestar Galactica is back on Fridays at 10 pm. Hurray!

My best friend Violet is moving back to Vegas. I know I’ll be going out more and doing things. I’m excited! I haven’t seen her in a few years. I know she’ll be much happier back in Vegas.. where there’s so much more to do.

Hope your week was better than mine. I know I survived it.. but it still sucked.

Weird work stuff

You definately can meet all sorts of people working in a hotel. There’s so many different departments and people ages 16-80. I have to pick up and turn in my bank before and after work. I met a lady who works in retail… an older nice lady. It’s weird coz I know she’s been in the satellite cage because of the perfume she wears. It’s not like it smells bad.. but it’s very sweet smelling and I think she uses alot. Or maybe it’s just so powerful. It lingers after she has already left. Then I always see this lady walking around.. I believe I talked to her once. She’s nice.. but she talks to herself like she’s having a conversation. Usually she says I don’t have to work anymore.. or I hate working.. I can’t wait til I don’t have to work here. But, I always see her a couple times a week. Guess she just hates her job so much.

Yesterday, I sat lunch with this guy Paul who works in retail. I usually see him when I’m picking up my bank. He’s very talkative. He reminded me about surfing. I’ve always wanted to learn how to surf. There’s so many different things I want to try.. sometimes to get over the fear or wanting to do something exciting. I just haven’t. I think surfing would be very fun.. but of course challenging at the same time. He was telling me that it’s amazing surfing out there in the ocean. One day.. I did get a tattoo to get over my fear of the pain… that hurt a bit. I kept shaking because I was so nervous. I want to get another one sometime.. I just haven’t thought of anything kewl to get.

I know I don’t really get out much.. it seems like I’m just wasting my life away watching my anime & cartoons.. and just surfing the internet. I’m going to try to get out more and enjoy all the things that Vegas has to offer. We do have awesome shows, great restaurants and some nice nature. I haven’t been to Red Rock in ages. I need to enjoy life more and LIVE!!! I’m hoping my best friend Violet moves back to Vegas. We’re so much alike.. we just have so much fun together. I hope she moves out of Hell, Indiana soon.
