A Whole Lotta Lot

This week has been busy. Really busy. Not only am I working my normal hours at work but I’m doing a lot of side work at home that’s sucking up most of my free time. With my nightly workouts and chores, that leaves me about 4 minutes to hang out with my husband and paint my nails or do something that will make me look like less of a troll. Here’s what’s been going on:

1.  I’m leaving for DC tomorrow and I have more things that need to get done before I leave than there are hours in the day. It’s totally stressing me out just thinking about the next 24 hours and I’m not sure how it will all get done. On top of that, I’m not even packed yet, which I would have done early if it weren’t for my “job” and “responsibilities” getting in the way.

2. I did a speed run on Tuesday night that was rather glorious. I didn’t want to do it because I was butt-tired (real word, look it up) from Crossfit the day before, but I’m not going to get faster just sitting on my ass. So I did 5 x 1200 @ 8:57. I upped the speed to 8:45 on the last set and realized there’s no way my poor, aging, black heart could take 5 sets at that pace. I still have some work to do if I want to kick my half marathon time’s ass.

3. I watched the first season of The United States of Tara.

It’s a show about a woman with multiple personality disorder and how the disorder effects her family. It’s really interesting and funny and kinda sad to think someone out there probably lives that way. I picked it from Netflix streaming because I wanted something on in the background while I worked and ended up really liking it. So I’ll watch the next two seasons soon. Has anyone else seen it?

John Corbett is in it and he’s way hotter in this show than he was in Sex and the City. But I’m pretty sure no dude would be that amazing and willing to deal with 17 years of Tara’s kind of crazy.

4. Today is bring your pet to work day at my work. This is my office mate.

That’s Bailey, the yellow lab of my desk mate, Justin (The one that got bunny-afied). Speaking of Justin, he left his desk the other day and forgot to lock his computer. So I took the opportunity to write “I love you, man” to one of our other co-workers from his instant messenger. Again, he loved that.

He told me he wasn’t going to get even for all the bunny decorations and the instant message until we are in Texas next month. He mentioned that he might hire a trans-sexual to come to my hotel room while we’re out there. I told him that I will look forward to that because I could use a shopping buddy.

Random question: Who’s watching SYTYCD? My favorite dancer so far is Cole but he went a little too long with that creepy nerd impression last night.

  1. Oh man do I love John Corbett. Did you know he made an album years ago? I actually saw him in concert at some summer festival. LOL
    Good luck with getting all your stuff done and have a great trip! 🙂

      I love him tooooooo! Have fun in DC, will you and Melissa have a drink and pretend I’m there hanging out with y’all? You can take a picture with air and then photoshop me in.

  2. Haha that is too funny about the jokes that you and your coworker are doing to each other. I go into one of my co-workers offices and move stuff around. Like move his chair and put his coat rack there instead. I’m such a child! Haha.

    I haven’t watched this weeks SYTYCD yet…..need to get on that and will tell you who I like so far! I am rooting for the Syrcus (sp?) guy. I like him!

    I love United States of Tara. I was pissed when it got cancelled. I think John Corbett would stick around that long with someone crazy like Tara. I’m sure he’s that kind of kick ass man.

    Your treadmill interval workout sounds like it was a solid workout! I’m sure that helped you get closer to your half marathon goal. Also, your office mate is adorable! Pets make the workplace so much happier and less stressful.

    Bring a pet to work day is the best idea! I am so jealous. I would get absolutely nothing done and have pockets full of milkbones so all the dogs would pick me as their favorite. And I would convince them to do their business on the office floor of the guy down the hall who won’t stop WHISTLING!!!

    And THATS how you make friends at work!

  6. I’m in the same busy boat! Stressed!!

    I looooove the chat btwn you and your desk mate. Hahahaha he sounds like peach. And that dog is damn cute. I want it please.

  7. Just bring . . . like . . . whatever. We’ll go shopping. It’s fine.

    Good work on the speed run. I felt butt-tired during mine, too, so I know exactly what you mean.

    I have actually seen (and like) the United States of Tara! So screwed up, but so good.

    I wish Roo were here. That would make my day 90% awesomer (also a word).

    lol, it sounds like you have an interesting work environment! I have been far too busy being obsessed with Big Brother on again, so all other reality shows haven’t compared lately!

    LOVE United States of Tara. Pissed it got canceled. Such a great show.

    Bring your pet to work day? Sounds amazing. Except Parko’s a little bit of a spaz.

  11. I’m behind on SYTYCD and haven’t seen this week’s episode, but I TOTALLY think they are pimping out Alexis (Alexa?) to be a front-runner.

    I’d love to bring the shih tzus to work, but something tells me the partners wouldn’t appreciate their antics.

  12. Not sure how I missed that John Corbett is on a show. Im just a smidge obsessed with him…in a totally not creepy and healthy way.

  13. Girl you know I’m watching SYTYCD! I don’t have a clear cut fave yet but I do think there are a LOT of great dancers this season. Might be the best group of dancers yet!

    • Yes! Usually there are one or two dancers that are obviously not as good as the others, but that doesn’t seem to be the case this year. Loving it!
