TRAILING BEHIND

My horoscope for today:
There is absolutely no excuse for feeling bored today! Even if there isn't much on your calendar, your phone hasn't been ringing, and no one is around to hang out with, you can entertain yourself for hours. While other poor souls can't ever feel comfortable by themselves, you won't have that problem today. When you're alone, you can do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it. So enjoy a day of following your whims, wherever they take you. (astrology.com)

There was a time when I used to check my horoscope everyday. My roommate and I used to love reading our horoscopes before getting ready for class, it would set the mood for the day (sometimes). I found that it was right about 25% of the time, but nonetheless, I enjoy having a "forecast" for my day. Today's horoscope proved to be right. I was allowed to work from home today which was nice. Sat in my PJ's and was busy busy busy. But after I was done, Irwin came home, and I was bored.

.. UNTIL Uri introduced me to this new iPhone App called TextPlus. It basically allows you to prank text other people. I decided to pull one on Irwin. Too bad he was too preoccupied to get a funny reaction to the text. Must find someone else now...

Anywhoo.. Was looking through some other pictures from Hawaii that I had forgotten I loaded into my laptop. These are actually a few of my other favorites. The sushi is from Sansei and it was DELICIOUS. It was their special that I can't remember the name of now, but it was basically floating in a plateful of butter sauce. It was so rich I loved it! And the plate next to it is called the Dynamite Popcorn Shrimp. Despite being doused in this rich buttery sauce, it was still crunchy!

shot at normalcy

Something terrible happened on Friday after work, and I've been trying to not worry so much all weekend. Been running errands before the Hawaii trip and trying to gather the materials I need for my halloween costume, so I've been a bit distracted. Made a stop by Marshall's and found this adorable jewelry stand. It now holds all of my favorite/daily pieces so I'm not rummaging in my little jewelry boxes for them. This way I also don't forget that there are some pieces that I need to rotate every once in a while.

Ya I have bullet earrings, those were my favorite pieces for a good long while. Haven't worn them since I graduated so I put them out. I seem to have a lot of chain jewelry.. Can't help it? Need to stop shopping for accessories though, I've been going on an earring/necklace craze lately. I think my set is complete. For now...

strawberry cream cheese

Today was a success.

making strawberry cream cheese cupcakes - check
surprise baby shower at work - check
crossing everything else off my list for this week - check

Definitely glad "hump day" is over... I had so much to do this week, and my favorite part was making these

I realized after they were all gone at work that I hadn't tried one, but I had enough of the frosting from last night to figure they were pretty decent.

On another note, counting down the days till Hawaii. :-)

eternalsunshineofthespotlessmind

Had a million and one things to do this weekend, but managed to squeeze in cuddle/movie time with mi amour. We watched two of his favorite movies, the Godfather and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. All I can say is, those movies were amazing. He'd been saying I needed to watch them but I have to be in "moods" to want to watch certain movies, not sure why. But it was the perfect thing to do in the cold Bay Area weather. Even went to Emeryville to watch Paranormal Activity (that I'm still freaking out about by the way). Addicted to Words with Friends on the iPhone, even spent Saturday night just playing... Nerdy, I know.

Anyway, was able to cross a lot of things off my list which always makes me feel great! And speaking of lists, I came across this one from Hello Nikki's blog that I think is insightful:


Then Irwin came over for lunch today because he didn't have work today (lucky butt). I love when he comes over for lunch ^_^ Pho and then a donut for dessert. We're such fatties but oh well.

Maui in one week!

Decided to wear a skirt today, before the really cold weather starts to prevent that. This skirt is surprisingly comfortable and fairly warm. Very pleased with it. And the shoes are incredibly comfortable. My favorite outfit (this week).

Photography and Soju

Last night had fun with Uri, Loren, and Arianne. Did a mini photoshoot in Uri's backyard, in the freezing cold/wind. I loved how the pictures turned out! Then proceeded to Mazu, my beloved hang out spot. Had much too much soju, running around taking pictures all over the place.. (thank gawd the owners are nice!), and wanted to play skeeball, so we went across the street to Buckshot. It was much more crowded than it was the last time we were there, and there was a line to play skeeball. Eventually I got my chance, at the behest of some shorty drunk man with an unnecessary ego. He shook my hand and said, "I'm sorry I'm going to beat you really bad right now."

Hey, I just wanted to play.

And then he got pissed when I beat him by 100 points. Poor guy.

Not.

Played a couple rounds of shuffleboard.. I was officially the suck, but Arianne, who couldn't make the pucks(?) across the board, somehow ended up carrying our team and winning. Woohoo!!

Went to Fizzies for some more drinks, seeing the old boss and coworkers again, and the regulars who still remembered me. Was all in all a fantastic night!

goodday

I'm excited for 3 (technically 4) things today:

1. Breakfast potluck at work. I made Italian Breakfast Skewers. I made them last night and it was a hit with Irwin and his parents.

2. Apparel Sample Sale today. I'm hoping to find cheap clothes that I can take apart and create some cool DIY's.

3. MY DSLR IS COMING TODAY!!! YAYYYYYY!! I've seriously been tracking it every 10 minutes because I'm so anxious.

4. Wearing my Acne Atacoma Wedges - these always make me feel happy ^_^
