This will be me tomorrow….at work!  Tomorrow is our annual company-wide Oktoberfest celebration, which is really just our excuse to have a fun oompah band, drink some beer (responsibly and after the work day is complete), climb a rock wall, play some laser tag, and just enjoy each others company.

There are definitely days that suck at work–we all have them and it’s why they pay you and call it “work”–but days like tomorrow, strenuous as they may be from an event perspective, really make me sit back and think “I get paid to do this. Nice.”

If you’re reading this and have heard me gripe about my job before, this will probably not outweigh that experience for you (sorry and thanks for listening). But getting to see all of the hard work come together and turn into something cool that people bring their kids to and enjoy….not too shabby.

Now excuse me whilst I go lift a few weights so that I can really pack a punch if someone doesn’t like it.  KIDDING!!  Or am I…



Today is the Day…

For stupid questions.  I think it’s all I’ve gotten all day today.  Not to be a debbie downer, but I think with just a touch more searching, everything being asked could be quite easily found.  I guess we can just blame it on sheer Monday laziness…

On another note, I am sort of but not really looking forward to the last debate tonight.  Looking forward to it being the last one.  Not really wanting to watch it since I have Bruno Mars hosting SNL on my DVR.  But I feel like I need to be a responsible voter and watch. I also feel like it’s a bit of a train wreck that you just can’t take your eyes off of.  Not that the debate is a train wreck, but like watching something happening that you just can’t stop watching.  Does that make any sense?

Clearly no.  So I’ll leave you with this.  I’m so back into Gossip Girl and I don’t know why.  I can’t quit you, GG!

Monday, Whiney Monday

I have good news!! It’s 4:00pm, which means that Monday is almost over!!

It’s been one of those.  Where you feel like no matter how much traction or progress you make, you’re still in the same place.  It did rain again today, so that’s great news–free water on the yard! (See…I told you this is what it’s come to.)

And Homeland started last night.  Did you see it? I won’t say anything, but WOAH.  I’m not sure how I’m going to do waiting a week between episodes. And there are definitely some things from last season that need to be addressed still, but as I always hear, patience is a virtue.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Special #1 was also last night. It was about as exhausting as typing that title. Lots of yelling, lots of making yourself look really bad (lookin’ at you Tre) and clearly almost all issues remain unresolved.  If in fact this show isn’t scripted, it’s devastating to watch such a private family feud so publicly. And it’s really nasty, to boot. Stay tuned for at least another episode!

But hey, it’s all in the name of entertainment, right?  Hopefully tonight’s TV lineup won’t disappoint and maybe we’ll get a little more rain in the forecast. That would end this Monday on a high note.

Better luck manana, muchachos!
