Things that irk me #2

My totally inconsiderate neighbors, who think it's okay to smoke and talk and laugh and yell and whatever else have you at ONE in the frickin morning on a TUESDAY weeknight right outside MY bedroom window. Seriously, take your damn smoking and talking and laughing and yelling and whatever else have you INTO YOUR own damn aparment, and stop waking me up in the middle of the night! We're not a college dorm, I have somewhere to be in the morning, and I NEED my SLEEP!

*whew* that felt better.
thank you for listening.

Why I love Grey's Anatomy

It cracks me up with dialogue like this:

Cristina: McSexy?
Meredith: No.
Izzie: McYummy?
Meredith & Cristina: No.
Meredith: McSteamy.
Cristina: Ah, there it is.
Izzie: Yep.
George: Now...I'll just be choking back some McVomit

This week marks a new journey in the lives of two of my friends.

On monday, Laura hopped on a plane and and went halfway across the globe to the land of Oz. She will be completing her Marine Biology Masters down under at James Cook University in Townsville, QLD.

On wednesday, Jen flew across the continent to the east coast, where she started training for her new job with the NOAA Corps.

I am both very happy and very excited for the two of them, and wish them the best of luck on these new adventures. Congrats Laura and Jen!

Cross-eyed is not a good look

My eyes are burning, my vision is getting a little blurry. I'm staring at my iBook monitor for too long. The reason? I've discovered the sudoko website. And I. can't. stop. I keep doing puzzle after puzzle, it's pathetic. Must. stop. !.

Hit the Quarter

Birthday was yesterday, and I've officially hit the quater-century mark. It's so unreal, I can't believe I'm already 25!!

Tuesday, the day before my birthday, I had a hair appointmnet. After almost two years of keeping up with my brown/golden highlights, I've decided to go black for a while. I just don't have the time or money to keep up with them right now, and low-maintenance hair was a much needed change. At first, it felt like I had a wig on, and I'm still getting use to seeing myself with such dark hair again. After the appointment, I went out to an early birthday dinner with childhood friends Kate and Ali, and Kate's boyfriend Brian. We all have such busy lives that I only get to see them about two to three times a year--usually for birthdays. Last time we met up was for both of thier birthdays back in August, so it was great seeing them and catching up.

Birthday day at work went amazingly smoothly, which was especially unusual for the first of the month. Instead of throwing a party this year, I opted to just do dinner with all my wonderful friends. Had a reservation for 25 at Claim Jumper, and every seat was filled. It was nice that everyone was able to come celebrate with me--thanks you guys!

So, this is it. I am officially half way to thirty. Twenty to twenty-five has brought many memories, friends, adventures, lessons, and accomplishments. It was full of love and loss, learning and growing, and I'm confident that twenty-five to thirty will be no less exciting and fullfilling. So here's to the second half of my twenty-something years!
