February 28, 2009


So we went and had a couple drinks at White Star and then Tony came back home...It was fun.  Susie and Jay (my new scissor-man) showed up around 11pm, so me, Carol, George, etc...had probably 6 shots (Mix of Jameson, Jager, etc) and then I finally got a cab back home.  Was a good night in a bad week.  Yankees play at 1pm tomorrow so will go back to White star and  work and watch....

 Nite!  (disclaimer for this entry -- I just looked at my 2 checks tonite and I had 9 Bacardi and Cokes and 5 shots so gimme a break!)

The loss of my literacy

I'm still working so much and seem to lose track of other things far too easily now.  I got a text just before 7:30 from Jaci seeing if I was going to make it to book club tonite.  She had sent a reminder note out on Tuesday and even though I read it, I still worked right through it.  UGH, there went one of my pleasure's that actually forces me to read, which I don't make enough time to do on my own.

She said that so far only her and her sister (Hi Tara) showed up, so maybe we can reschedule or I can at least begin a book for next month.

I'm stopping work for the night now and hopefully will get some sleep soon.

Ale-ing monday

Quick update as I finish up some work. 

Odd sign of the times, I suppose but it bothered me as an invasion a bit today (which is tough to do to me today).  So I got my October/Nov paychecks in today and Tony went and deposited them and by the time he got home and was giving me the deposit slip my cell phone was ringing; i picked it up and it was Wachovia, saying that they got flagged when people made deposits to see if they wanted to open higher yield accounts.  I was freaked out a bit and said that my first deposit in a while would be going to pay bills.  I just thought it was A. way too immediate/desperate a response over a simple deposit; and B. very very invasive. I'm not a fan anyway.

Anyways after that, we went up to Ale house and met Lou and Joe (and Kelli came too) for drinks and dinner.  I still can't catch up with work at all so I had to take my laptop and do a bit, but it's always fun hanging out with the gang and Rob at the Ale House is a great guy!

I'm finishing up work now and am going to get some sleep.  I have so many deadlines this week and have meetings in the city tomorrow afternoon.

Happy Mardi Gras and I'm updating here alot now and hope to continue if even a bullet list like our old daily calendar!

From cowboys and indians to Gays and Indians!

Congrats to both Milk and Slumdog Millionaire for winning big in the Oscar's tonite.  Loved Sean Penn's speech and I wish people would take it to heart. We went to White Star to watch the Oscar's for their annual party and although we lost for the ballot competition (and how bad is that since I do the PricewaterhouseCoopers website for their balloting), we both won (for different answers) on their quiz sheets and each won $20 Gift Cards, so I guess we'll be going back (surprise, suprise)!

Before that, today, I got a good solid 10 hours of work done.  Still nowhere near being caught up but it helped alot.  This week is going to be extra tough with shitty deadlines.

Also just want to wish my sister good luck for her appointment later today and our thoughts are with her!

A short update after way too long. It has been absolutely insane with work this year and it's not stopping anytime soon.  I'm used to working a lot of hours as it is, but it seems like they've almost doubled and on top of it I'm doing many of them at the office, which can be both fun and annoying.

Anyway, things have been going pretty well, we've been doing a lot (besides working too).  Last weekend we had a great turnout for our Mardi Gras party (on Valentine's Day), this afternoon we are going to our friend Jaci's housewarming (and maybe Tara will finally make a mention in the blog <-- Oh wait, she just did).  Tonight we are going to see Kathy Griffen at Madison Square and tomorrow night we are going to the White Star Oscar's party.   I've somehow got to fit in 10-15 hours of work around all that this weekend. I've done a couple this morning and I think I can do alot during the day tomorrow.

I'm going to do my best to write a little more in here every week (and maybe get Tony to again).

Tough year!

Not alot of entries (altho I always try to twitter to the right).  I've been working insane, non-stop hours since the beginning of this year, and probably won't get much of a break until after July?  I postponed my Survivor entry until after July, but think about it alot and am going to work on that even harder now!  Me and Tony are doing (scarily) great this year and in the past year, I can't pay the attention that I should to him and our pets but I think he understands about the over-work thing (to give an example...I went to the office a few weeks ago on a project and here's how it went...)

Friday 13:00 (3 hours more work at home)

Sat 15:00 (2 hours more work at home)

Sun 17:00 (2 hours more work at home)

Mon 19:00 (2 hours more work at home)

Tues 22:00 (and I hallucinated on the way home walking in a huge snowstorm) then had to get up 2 hours later to do our Oscars balloting site, a meeting an hour late rand then regular work...

anyways... Last night we had a great (early) Mardi gras party and had maybe 60 people here and then relaxed some and then went to White Star tonite for dinner with Lou and Joe.  I loved that a couple of our friends last night (that hadn't been here) went on and on about our place and said it must be nice to live in a mansion (it is so not a mansion but it made me feel good!)

I'll try to get back to regular posts now and let everyone know how lame and average everything is now =)
