Dude. I’m in HERE!

Okay, so I was just going upstairs to the ad agency portion of the business and then I was JUST coming back down and that’s ALL I wanted to do! You’d think a SIMPLE task like that would be easy, but no… no it is not. I was on the 21st floor and I hit the button for 10. The digital floor counter device said “21… 20… 21” and I thought “Hm, that’s not right. I want to go down, not up.” And then I hit 10 again in case the elevator got confused. I think this pissed off Mr. Elevator Man and he said “I’m staying here!” And stay he did. For 25 minutes.

Yeah. So I was in there, pacing, crouching, thinking about my favoritest people in the whole world and how I wished I could tell them about this situation… but couldn’t. And I was in there for about 25 minutes. Yeah. So then the elevator dudes opened the doors and the elevator was about 2-3 feet over the floor.

I took the stairs back downstairs.

That’s all, folks.

What’s up??

So Yeah, total slacker chick over here.

Wedding Updates (since this and work are all that is left of my life)

Saturday: Got the flowers with my mom. I will carry plum mini calla lillies (SOO pretty) and the bridesmaids will carry crystal breath mini calla lillies (also beautiful). We struck out later that day with the invitations, but then hit “gold” on Monday at Hallmark. So all we need to do is the wording and submit it (and the times) & the invitations will be taken care of!

Sunday: Went shopping for bridesmaid dresses and found a beautiful dress at Ann Taylor. It is black with a very ruffly bottom and a cowel neck and spaghetti straps. It will look lovely with an up-do and jewelry. AND it no one needs alterations AND it was on sale!! YAY!

Monday: Found the invitations and negotiated the trolley. I’m getting better at this negotiation thing. I am negotiated him down a respectable chunk of change. As long as I feel good about the negotiations–that’s all that matters, right?

Tuesday: Rested–went to bed at 9 p.m. It was my wedding day off.

Wednesday: Sending out deposit for trolley. Tonight we are going to check out tuxedos for Frank. He will look dashing, I’m sure! πŸ˜€

Thursday: Another day of rest.

Friday: FRANK’S BIRTHDAY!!! (I’m working at IAA that day in honor of his golden 23!)

So I bet you’re curious as to what I’ve been doing all week πŸ˜€

Wednesday: I watched the series finale of “Dawson’s Creek”. Even though I was never an avid watcher, it symbolizes the end of one part of my life and the beginning of another. It also revealed to me what a wussy I am. I cried from 8p to 9p SOLID. It was cleansing, though.

Thursday: Frank picked me up from the train in West Chicago and then proceeded to score MANY good boyfriend brownie points by going with me to the Great Indoors to look at bedding and furniture. Who’s a good boy?? Then we went back to my house so I could change and we grabbed a quick bite to eat. Then we headed off to see The Matrix. The movie was pretty good, although slightly long and it ended in one of the world’s biggest cliffhangers ever! ::Sigh:: I guess we’ll have to see Matrix 3 in November.

Friday: Tonight is my sorority’s formal!! YAY! I wonder who will win the most coveted honor our sorority has: Most Perverted!! πŸ˜€

That’s all for now!

Thank you, Jamie!

Special thanks to Jamie for trying to save me from myself πŸ™‚ Unfortunately I still haven’t figured out what I am doing wrong and will have to spend some quality time with the code to figure it out.

Wedding Updates

I’m soooo excited–last night we booked our photographer!! I think he’s going to do a great job and we were sooo lucky he was available. He usually books as much as 3 years in advance, but since we have a Friday wedding, we were able to get him to do it!! YIPPY! His books were awesome and he’s going to do some photojournalism as well as posed photography. I can’t wait!!

This Saturday we are meeting with the florist and picking out wedding invitations and program/menu papers. Sunday we are getting the bridesmaid dresses. We still have a lot to do, but we’ve already accomplished sooo much! It’s quite exciting!! In a few weeks, Frank and I are going apartment searching, so hopefully we’ll have a happy place to live. πŸ™‚

Frank and I had a great time hanging out with Anthony and Laura–even though the conversation did wind up running aground in politics and religion. ::Sigh::

Saturday I went to IAA to get some work done on the Newsletter (Will this thing ever go away!?) and then I met up with Dorothy for a little lunch and then a little shoppy shoppy. πŸ™‚ After that, I went home and took care of thank you notes and a few other things around the house before we saw my brother’s band play in the battle of the bands.

Can I tell you that my brother is just too cool? He has GROUPIES! These girls made their own band tee-shirts (Les Harvard is the name of the band) and screamed and jumped throughout the entire performance. I think it also helped that his band is actually very good–Frank and I loved watching them play. It’s exciting to see my brother “rocking out” on stage. I must tell you that the lead singer of his band is every bit of them “rock star” that my dad told me he was. He definitely has stage presence!

After the battle of the bands, Frank and I went to see XMen2–which I thought was great!! I wish I had Rebecca Romajn-Stamos’ body (Spelling?). Yikes!

Yesterday we went to my aunt’s house for Mother’s Day where we ate lots of yummy food. Then we went back to my house where Frank and I passed out for an hour and a half. We finished off the evening watching the movie “Singles”.

Upcoming Wedding Stuff:

This week we are interviewing the photographer, the florist and finding invitations. Crazy!!

Bye for now!

Birth Control…

Now I’m wondering if it’s my birth control that is ruining my appetite. Last month when I first started it, I was having hunger issues. And it does say on the package that it might cause nausea (sp?). At least I’m doing this now than later when Frank and I are married.

Hm. I got nothin’. Tonight I’m going to go out with Frank, Anthony and Miss Laura P. I think we are playing pool and the doing something else. I wonder if Frank remembers that I suck at pool…

Tomorrow I am going to IAA to work on their newsletter (so help me, I have to get this out the door) and then to lunch with Dor. Tomorrow night we are going to see my brother play in battle of the bands.

Why My Dad is Glad He’s Not Going

My dad is glad that Frank and I are going in his place because, quite frankly, he’s not sure Andy’s band will make it through one set, much less one song. Apparently the personality conflicts in this hot up and coming boy band are enough to bring the whole gig down. The lead singer already thinks he’s a rockstar. Never mind that they practice in my uncle’s garage, far from most of humanity. This guy thinks he’s got it goin’ on. My dad says that’s what all rockers think–that’s why they can get up every time they sing and rock out. In their minds, they are Mr. or Ms. Thang.

Aside from their risen star, my brother also contends with Mr. Ego who also dukes it out with Mr. Rockstar. My cousin and my brother just watch them argue, neither helping nor hurting the situation.

Anyway, wish him luck! This could be interesting πŸ™‚

My dad says that he’d be too nervous to stand in the audience, holding his breath, praying that by some
