geez ann, another blog? [Nov. 9th, 2008|10:04 am]
I've started and abandoned several blogs. I'm really dedicated to this one, I swear. My intent is for the blog to become my primary internet presence, however, I'll keep the LJ for personal rants.

i'm not a runner [Apr. 6th, 2008|10:25 pm]
but i'm trying to be.

week 1: 10.5 miles, 2:10:00

i'm off to a slow start, but that is what everyone recommends.  this isn't week 1 of running, per se, but it's my first week of taking it seriously and logging my distances and whatnot.

news flash... [Nov. 24th, 2007|11:08 pm]
For those of you on the facebook, Pirates are beating Ninjas by roughly 4,000.  I haven't followed the numbers that closely, but it seemed like every time I noticed the Ninjas were winning.  Chris pointed out that 4,000 is a pretty small margin for the 1.5 million people involved in the "battle."

So, if you're on the Facebook and you haven't picked a side:  BE A PIRATE.

I thought about going into work today, because it is easier to get stuff done when no one is around.  But I really should work on my paper, and I need to bake cupcakes for our "block party" this afternoon.  So I'll probably just stay late a few nights this week (can't tomorrow because I have class).  Chris is going to sneak me into the Gtown Law library with him in a little while, so we can both focus.  Hopefully I'll be able to get past the recently obnoxious security, which lately has been requiring me to wear a STICKER indicating I am not a student every time I go to the gym, even though I am a fully-paid gym member with a card. 

Depending on my schedule, in the next couple of days I'm going to get my DC library card.  I had one in VA, but hadn't bothered yet for DC.  I keep buying books from Amazon, reading them once, and giving them away.  It dawned on me (ie Chris pointed out) that the library is ideal for such books...

i'm not really a dallas fan [Oct. 8th, 2007|09:22 pm]
But I have Romo as my fantasy football QB.  And the Dallas defense.  So I've been rooting for them a lot lately, which is odd.  The Cowboys?  Me?

The Broncos are sucking, though, so I don't feel too much like a traitor.  Losing 41 to 3, against the Chargers? 

I am slowly working on my term paper.  It's due Nov. 19th.  I have a plan to write ~4 pages per week, which means I need to write 4 pages in the next two hours or I'll be behind schedule.  That's obviously not happening, but I think that as long as I try to stay on top of things I won't end up writing the entire thing two days before it is due.

hilarious [Oct. 4th, 2007|08:32 pm]
"Business Time" by Flight of the Conchords.  Worth the $0.99 on iTunes.  Especially if you're in a long-term, co-habitating relationship.  Trust me.

lunch bags [Oct. 3rd, 2007|10:19 pm]
Sorry to spam... but if you eat frozen meals for lunch everyday like I do, and if you like cancer-free breasts, then you should get one of the new Lean Cuisine Koman insulated lunch bags.  And you should get them for your mom/sister/friend.  They're only $9.95, which includes S&H, and $5 goes to breast cancer research.

I got the preppy argyle one.  Sweet!

fu*kin' A [Sep. 16th, 2007|08:27 pm]
So I was watching the end of the Denver/Oakland game on, because they weren't showing it here. (And also because I went to a Nats game today, so I missed the start of the game and didn't feel like going out to a bar to watch). Anyway, "watching" the game on the computer is hard and not fun to do. The game amazingly went into overtime, and they showed the last bit on TV... I watched until Oakland kicked a game-ending field goal, cursed ("fu*kin' A"), and shut off the TV.

Chris came downstairs about 30 minutes or so later and asked how Cat and I were doing (she was sitting in my lap, preventing me from reading). I replied, "Cat is a little pissed Denver lost, but she'll get over it." "You're kidding, right?" asked Chris, and proceeded to tell me that the kick didn't count because Denver called a time-out, which no one realized for thirty seconds, and then Oakland missed their second attempt and Elam then kicked a FG to win the game. I thought he was joking. But NO, I am an idiot who shut off the TV and then sulked for a half an hour. I missed all the excitement and glory. Lame.

so i watched a lot of "america's next top model" today, which i should not do. then, after a college football & chinese delivery interlude, i started to get ready for a party. some of the attendees will be people from my new office, who i have not really spent time with outside of work.

so i was feeling a little nervous about coming across as cool, and vulnerable after watching all these beautiful & thin girls get rejected by tyra banks... so i put on a feminine shirt, did my hair in this overly hip way (where you pull the front straight back and poof it up, and then wear a pony-tail, so you have this odd poofy pony-tail combo). and i put on some dark eye makeup. i felt a little fake and i still felt fat, but whatever.

i came down the stairs, and chris, bless his heart, looked at me like i had put on a prom dress to go to the grocery store. after a brief discussion, in which i admitted that yes, i should just be myself, and no, i don't secretly harbor a desire to be a model, i wiped off some of the makeup, changed into an awesome new t-shirt & some pinstripe chuck taylors, and switched to a normal pony-tail. i feel much more like myself, and surprisingly thinner (perhaps because i am more covered). meh. insecurities suck.

this reminds me of a work-related meeting i had with a good friend of mine (we don't normally interact at the office). i was wearing a skirt suit that day, as well as some (reasonable) makeup, and after the meeting he said that it was strange seeing me in something other than jeans and a clever t-shirt.
