Wow, I have really slacked in the last week with my updating. I apologize to everyone who’s been anxious to find out what’s happened in the last week. I actually was very busy, and then I was unexpectedly off on Thursday, when I would have updated for sure. So, let’s go back in time and I’ll tell you what I’ve been up to. On Monday night, Jackie, Leslie, Bella, Dana, and I went to see Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. I enjoyed it, partly because I “get it,” and partly because I enjoyed their outfits. Jackie, Bella, and I decided we were going to go as the Angels for Halloween. On Tuesday night, Mike and I went over to our friends’ house to see their new puppy. It is too cute for words. It’s a type of Jack Russell Terrier, but it’s slightly smaller in the body, with longer legs, and a far more laid-back personality. It’s my kind of dog, let me tell you. After we played with the dog for a while, we went to dinner at one of Mike’s favorite Mexican restaurants. I indulged and ordered the fire shrimp – shrimp wrapped in bacon, smothered in a HOT sauce. It is soooo good, but I was feeling like I might die later that night. My stomach was not happy. Then, Wednesday, one of the greatest nights of my life. I accompanied one of our artists to Dodger Stadium so she could perform the National Anthem, and I, along with her manager, my boss, and Mike, got to go on the field with her. It was so amazing to be standing on the field for an hour before the game! We got to watch the Padres take batting practice from only 10 feet away, and I touched the grass and the track we were standing on. What a great memory. Even though the Dodgers lost, the bastards. I can’t believe how much they suck lately. Okay, wait, I told myself I wasn’t going to get into the Dodgers. Moving on. My boss told me that since Thursday was a half-day, it was cool with him if I didn’t come into the office, since he wasn’t going to come in, either. Gee, not go to work? But I wanted to! Just kidding. I slept until 9:00, which is very late for me, and started off my day by reading the paper and watching the Today Show. Then, I decided that I needed to tackle the mess that was my room. I try to be neat, but then other forces step in and my room sort of…explodes. As I was cleaning, I heard a loud, “boom!” from the hallway. I cautiously called out “hello,” while I looked for something heavy to protect myself with. It turned out to be Bella – she had majorly overslept and was freaking out. An hour and a half later, after we had figured out the right story to tell her boss, we ran some errands, then went to Palos Verdes to meet Christine for lunch. It was a gorgeous day, so we drove there and back with the top down. When we returned to our apartment, I discovered that, for the first time in the 14 months I’ve owned my car, I’d gotten a sunburn while driving. I was beyond annoyed. My shoulders and chest were now bright red, and I had a lovely white patch where the seatbelt had been. I am really meticulous about not getting strap lines when I tan, especially since I have a big wedding coming up where tan lines would look bad. The rest of the weekend was spent slathering on sunscreen and other creams to try to prevent peeling. On Thursday night, a big group of us went out to dinner to celebrate Danielle’s birthday, with dancing after. Quite an eventful week, if I do say so myself. I think I’ll save Friday and Saturday for tomorrow. I actually started to come down with a cold on Saturday night, and I have spent the last two days hacking and sneezing and being miserable. It never fails, I always get sick on vacation or at the end of a long weekend. I can’t imagine why.
