Date-less

So I can’t seem to keep my head on straight as of late and it’s no mystery why. But it’s getting out of control and I can hardly keep straight what day it is. All week I’ve been having to stop and think and double–triple check my iCal and see where I’m supposed to be. Wednesday it was telling my INFO 498 group members to e-mail me the sections for our presentation that night by 9PM thinking it was due the following morning (on a Thursday when we don’t even have class) when in fact it’s not due til next week. Or having a meeting with a professor at 1PM to go over a research project but thinking it’s at 1:30 (even though I had checked my calendar at noon to double check the time), only to lose track of time and miss the appointment completely. It’s being at the officer meeting yesterday and being asked about availability dates for a meeting in December and opening up a 2005 calendar. It’s writing September on a document that was supposed to be marked with today’s date and turning down plans for next Monday cause you think you have an eye appointment but it’s really on a Tuesday. But now that you think about it, you’re not even sure about that…In other words, it’s been a daze of a week but eventful. For example, some boy brought me a short chai at work today. That and a combination over other morning surprises made my morning, afternoon, day.

Yesterday in particular was pretty rad. Went out with the Info crew to the Google Open House party at their new Kirkland office and had a stellar time. Red wine will do that. More on this later, awaiting a certain group photo with a certain balloon-man in a tuxedo. Besides, I have a boat to catch.

Bouldering and then some

It’s been a very very chill Saturday. No complaints here.

Last night I went bouldering with David, Chris, and Justin.

What I heard while climbing:

“Whoa, is that XML on the back of your t-shirt? Awesome!”
“Aw, what? Version 1.0?”
/me laughs and falls off wall

It was pretty awesome despite my less than all-star performance. Thank you David for getting me off my lazy-teriyaki-eating-Naruto-watching-butt, haha. It was midway through a California roll when I finally consented to leave my place for some climbing adventure before Jules’ birthday outing. In any case, I woke up this morning with my upper-body feeling like it had been run over.

Feeling incredibly sore and lethargic, the afternoon was spent lounging around the living room with Jules, Paul, and Taylor, watching an E! special on Britney Spears (why I find her story intriguing is beyond me). Afterward, it was a trip to Best Buy where I stressed out some printer salesmen because I asked them to provide me arguments that countered my notion that a certain printer was too “chubby”. Hoorah for silliness. Purchase complete, I followed my Harry Potter naming scheme of electronic devices. My new printer’s name: Mischief_Managed.

Afterward it was a failed attempt at surprising Ryan at work, dinner in Bellevue with Jules’ parents, massive consumption of quality Chinese food, and bumming around on Ryan’s couch.

Estoy contenta.

Veterans’ Day Weekend

On Wednesday night I received an e-mail from Case to celebrate the eve of Veterans’ Day.

“If you don’t show up it means you hate America.”

Being a definite non-hater, I joined Casey and some of her friends at the College Inn after work. It was a real good night out. A definite change from my prior five hours working at the lab, which has been all sorts of fun lately. The best was walking outside out into the cold foggy night.

Veterans’ Day itself was spent out with the fam shopping and the mandatory Super Chinese Buffet visit. Even got to revisit my brother’s house. Later that night I went out with Ryan and Kevin to Northlake Pizza & Tavern for the first time. Logger Special = win.

And now for Round 3 tonight @ the Duchess to celebrate my roommate’s twenty-third
birthday–Happy Birthday Jules! What a weekend…
