I can't seem to detach from my blackberry but at least I am HOME. My plans for today are hardly ambitious. After Ellen (and Joey!), I'm picking up my framed Int'l Star Registry certificate, depositing a check, buying candles at Bed Bath & Beyond and going to the gym. That's it for me!

I also have high hopes that I'll make a significant dent in Monstrous Regiment. It's looking less and less likely I'll be ready for this Saturday's book club.

Last night I spent some time reading through LJ entries from February & March 2005. It's amazing how, in the circle of how much changed, how much also stayed the same.

  • On February 3, I discussed five fictional characters I love. I am consistent in my love for Lee "Scarecrow" Stetson.

  • On February 23, I wrote about using Justin magazine covers to illustrate a point about magazine brand identity. I think that trade magazine article will follow me for the rest of my career. "Justin Timberlake???" ;)

  • February 24th was my four month Sally-versary!

  • Client VP! For more than a year there was angst and lust and pining culminating in a mildly humiliating scenario where I completely put myself out there and he made it clear our relationship wasn't going beyond friendship. I remember how fabulous and empowered I felt the night I wrote this post, though.

  • On March 15th I posted abouta client presentation in Ann Arbor. Hahahaha. If I only knew... When I moved to A2, I found the presentation in the office I occupied. I still have it.

    I thought I'd cringe through all of my old posts but not quite so.

    THIS DAY. Oh, this day. I think my big mistake was the Twitter text and matching text to my sister declaring, "I'm having the nicest day off." Right there - my downfall.

    At 2:30pm a major supplier called with near catastrophic news that turned the rest of my day on it's ear, forced me into the office for four hours, and delivered a punch that will keep on giving and giving and giving. I shouted "FUCK" at outlandish decibels more times today than I can count. The walls of my car and house were vibrating. My major victory is that I kept the shouting out of the office. Fuck, fuck, fuck. It's bad enough that the issue is as bad as it is but this was my day off. This was the day off I was taking after not taking my days off on Friday and Monday. I'm cranky.

    I can end the pity party right there. The start to my day was actually pretty spectacular and, up until 2:30, everything I was hoping for from the day. I watched Joey on Ellen and then ran my requisite errands. I now have my framed International Star Registry certificate in my hot little hands. Well, it's in my office, soon to reside on my wall, but you get the point. I found a $50 Bed Bath & Beyond gift card and a $100 AmEx gift card and used them to buy $90 in candles. Candles are expensive. Now I'm sitting on my couch watching The West Wing with four of my new candles burning. (It's "Inauguration Part 2. Donna is about to take a fall for Jack Reece.)

    Here's all of the other good stuff keeping me from damaging the structure of my hope with a sledgehammer:

  • Tickets to RENT with Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp in Detroit on 2/22!

  • New purchases from borders.com. I picked up two copies of "If These Wall Could Talk 2" ([livejournal.com profile] carta - one has your name on it) and a book I saw in the VSL:Science newsletter today: Is God a Mathematician? by Mario Livio

    Nobel Laureate Eugene Wigner once wondered about "the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics" in the formulation of the laws of nature. Is God a Mathematician? investigates why mathematics is as powerful as it is. From ancient times to the present, scientists and philosophers have marveled at how such a seemingly abstract discipline could so perfectly explain the natural world. More than that -- mathematics has often made predictions, for example, about subatomic particles or cosmic phenomena that were unknown at the time, but later were proven to be true. Is mathematics ultimately invented or discovered? If, as Einstein insisted, mathematics is "a product of human thought that is independent of experience," how can it so accurately describe and even predict the world around us? More )

  • Playboy interview with Hugh Laurie

  • Daniel Radcliffe Invites Obama Girls to Hogwarts

  • Via [livejournal.com profile] ghettogreta: Every year, Lean Cuisine offers these really cute lunch bags for sale at their website. The bags are 10 bucks a piece and for every bag sold, 5 dollars goes to the Susan G. Komen for the cure foundation. I eat at least 5 Lean Cuisine meals every week so this is the perfect way to support cancer research and my favorite frozen meal company. Site is here for anyone who's interested.

  • Instinct interviewed Bruce Boxleitner a few months ago and it's all about SMK. &hearts &hearts &hearts

  • And the Girls are on the cover of Playboy again. I have all three (courtesy of my staff which worries me in a way I'm not going to delve into). I didn't scan the photos but here's Kendra's cover. More hearts! &hearts &hearts &hearts
