I think this will be one of the best weekends of the year...
Homecoming...seeing everyone will be craziness...
My birthday.....
Jonasay CD release....

I am so fortunate to have so many amazing people in my life. Thank you.

ahhhhh Homecoming weekend....when else can you go to Pathmark at midnight on a Friday night and actually stand in line with other people all holding breakfast food. Eggs and Kegs. And all the store brands. Cheapness is where its at. But we're not having eggs or kegs. We did that two years ago. We're now tailgating. But instead of BBQing...since we're starting at 9 am, we're soing the breakfast thing since we're not allowed to do the grilll thang because of the drought. It was also like a small little family in the liquor store. How many different things can you mix with OJ? I can't wait to see everyone again :-) I can't beleive how lmuch time has passed and how far we have travelled. What a long strange trip its been....

I like to make to-do lists so I feel a semi sense of accomplishment and fulfillment while I cross tasks off. Makes my life seem sort of in order and prioritized. I make a new list every few days and tack it right to my computer monitor, because, if you know me, I am always here. At my computer. Wherever I go, there I am!
But sometimes, when my list seems extremely difficult, I add mundane thinsg to my list. Like "brush teeth", "make brita water", and "water plants" so that way I still feel fulfilled and worthy of my time by corssing of things on my list, even though I would do them if they were't on my list.
I get by on little victories.

I set off the smoke alarm again. And this wouldn't have happened if the maintenence man would have left the damn thing on the floor. See, I had set it off so many times before that I just ripped the sucker out because it was annoying. We have about ten in our apartment, so there was defnitely no chance to burning to a crisp.
I had a candle burning. yes, a candle, and yes, only one candle and the damn smoke detector went off. I look over and its a burning inferno, but still ONE CANDLE!
So I grabbed the thing, surprising i remeber to cover it with something so my hands wouldn't sear off, and threw it in the sink. No more candle, it was a flaming mess.

I think October is my favorite month. I love Halloween. I went to Pathmark and bought a few bags of Halloween candy. The best Halloween candy ever are the Russell Stover Peanut Butter Pumpkins. Spooky.
I love the weather, cold and blustery enough for a sweater, but not so much the jacket. Leaves start to fall and the trees are always swaying with the wind. You can see your breath and your nose is always the first to feel the bitterness. But it's refreshing.
The days get darker earlier and you find more excuses to go outside.
Pumpkin carving...apple picking...haunted houses...

I love our little music store :-)
We're moving...once again, no more books, just music and down the street. Ahhh...yet another week of moving, but only good things can come of this.
And it was awesome to hang out with everyone outside of Rainbow. And hearing crazy stories. And letting Raf know how silly we actually are. And bashing customers. Oh wait, we don't do that...
We call the music register place the pirate ship. I wonder if in the new place if we can wear eye patches, pirate hats, and carry a bottle of rum. Wait, we drink in the store anyways. Hahaha...last year around Christmas there was this "random" bottle of scotch in the back, and we all would drink from it but not all admit to it (we would always go in groups of 2 or 3, never alone, we're not that lushish!) and so we all found out tonight that we all contributed to the drinking of the scotch on the job. and sneaking galsses of wine....then owen would say "dammit, just drink it, no one cares!" oh man, crazy times crazy times.
But Rob broke the nutpen. The nutpen has been a part of Rainbow for over a year. A bic pen with a metal nut around it. Rob got fed up and broke it. It was a sad sad sad day for the nutpen.
And see....i thought it was common knowledge that i thought a certain guy with a wife and kids that always comes into the store was really hot. The Raf asked me if i was "fucking nuts". Yes, "fucking nuts" was the correct term he used.
And Terry Potts.........Terry is an older man that hits on all the girls, and older, i mean like 80. And he creeps all the girls out. Well, we decided next time we're just going to tell Terry how incredibly hot he is and if he will unbutton his shirt for us. Slowly. Seductively.
And tomrorow will be another fun night in Rainbow.

My computer is sick :-( It has a virus. No idea how I got the damn thing, but I can;t get rid of it. My virus protection stuff sees the virus but does nothing about it. It says it cannot delete the corrupt file. Anyone want to help me? :-P

On a better note. I am taking up stock in wawa coffee. I was editing Center Stage form 11:30 am til 1:30 am. Yes That is 14 hours. Oh wait, I went to lunch. Minus 2 hours. And technically I didn't work on it during my meeting, so minus another hour, but thats still TV stuff ;-) . And sports was using the editors at that time as well, so ok, maybe not a complete 14 hours, but still that is 12 hours i was in that damn building!
The first episode on Center Stage is done done done done done. And it is mucho excellente. I work with the greatest people. :-)
Mondays just shouldn't exist. I mean, it is not like anyone ever takes Mondays seriously. It's just an extended Sunday. And my weekends always start on Wednesday. So I guess my week constitutes just Tuesday. Damn the work week.

I don't know if last night really happened or not.
It was so amazing and unreal.
Charise and I have been looking forward to the Ryan Adam's concert for so long, thank you Dan for tickets. Dan rocks. Hard.
SO Charise and I leave Delaware, listening to the Ours cd the whole way up screeching and creaming and saying "oh my god" the entire way up 95 and 476 haha.
Ahhhh...Popeyes french fries. So Cajunny goodness.
Then Dan calls. Uh oh! Melissa forgot our tickets at home but they will buy us new tickets. Oh no it's sold out!
"Hi, do you need tickets? I have two for the third row in the pit." CHA-CHING! He didn't look sketchy, he had a card, and he walked us to the door. AW YEAH!!
Charise and I went insane. The show was one of the best I have ever been to. I had my jaw dropped most of the time. Sounded so perfect. None of the radio songs yay, and all of Heartbreaker and just all musical goodness. He gave out 4 guitars. Yeah. Four. Guitars. Some girl shouted out that he had a nice ass and she got a guitar. Damn, what would I get if I told him he could have my body haha.
And we got "Come PIck Me Up" for the closer, one of my favorite Adams songs. Soo so so so so so good.
