I've got to work on my resume


I just read an amazing resume.
With a cover letter titled "Fine, don't fucking hire me, you can't handle my shit" you know it's got to be good.

Listed under "SHIT I HAVE DONE" you find:
-When I was 8, a frisbee flew into my backyard and I blew it up with my mind.
-My brother is the Eiffel Tower
-Direct descendant of Beowulf

It puts my paltry "Accomplishments" section to shame.

oh Christian!

I got this amazing Christian Dior scarf as a going away present from one of my co-workers.
It's lovely!

And to continue on this thread, here's some lovely Dior pieces from the Spring 2011 runway.

The full inbox

My inbox is full.
While this isn't new, I'm starting to get very annoyed at the amount of random job offers that take up a good percentage of these emails.

Look, unless you're an amazing job and pays way more than I already get paid, allows me to be on vacation/sit on my butt doing fun stuff more than actual work and IS REAL (this one being the most important), then leave me and my inbox alone!
I have other things to do... like pet my cats, read a book, sleep or drown myself in chocolate covered strawberries.

To catch everyone up: My transfer came through and I've relocated.
Monday was my first day at my new job. Looking for a faster, more efficient way to get there, I took my dad's advice of a short cut.

My Tuesday morning went a bit like this:

Dad: Try this short cut to work. I bet it'll cut down on time. --insert directions here--

Me: - ten minutes after leaving the house - Wow! This is faster! :)

Me: - ten minutes after that - Hey, it's kinda pretty out here. ...wait a minute... is that a cow?

Me: - fifteen minutes after that -  Aaaahhh gaaaaaawd! Is that the same cow? Where am I?!?

Turns out I took a left instead of a right.
I took my dad's route again this morning. Turning right this time and got to work in record time!

Bad apple

Just got an email from Apple reminding me that my one year warranty on my iPod nano is nearly up.
Great, just what I wanted to hear.
I'm already expecting it to explode a minute after the warranty runs out.

I'm moving

I don't know, little kitten, I don't know.
I hate moving. So much.
But I must. I want to save money to start working toward my masters degree and move to California.
But, I hate moving! I hate packing!

Literary jewelry

I love a good book.
Sometimes I'll carry one around with me for little moments where I can grab a sentence or two.

Turns out, the creator behind Littlefly took the idea of carrying a book with you literally.

Jeremy May laminates hundreds of pages to make one piece; rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces.
Pretty amazing.


So there's apparently an iPhone case that has a bottle opener attached to the back.
Yeah, 'cause people really need to down beers AND answer the phone at the same time.
I can't roll my eyes any harder without making my brain explode.

I see you riding 'round town...

The second song I heard in the new year is, incidentally, the one that makes me the happiest.
I've never been so happy to hear someone say, "Fuck you," which is the title of this Cee-Lo Green song.

Man crush

I feel like a little schoolgirl and that's ok.
I have a man crush. And you know what? That's ok, too.

Having an imaginary boyfriend is pretty fun:
- They rarely argue with you
- They don't care that you haven't shaved your legs since September
- Your morning breath doesn't turn them off
- They always want to know how your day went and listen intently while you vent

Right now, with things being turned upside down with preparing to move, fiddling with schooling and career plans... perhaps I'm not in the perfect place, mentally, for a REAL relationship.

So, want to know how we met?
His new song was the first one I heard this year! Isn't that cute?

Well, hey there, Enrique!

Aww... he's a bit shy. But here's his new song, "I like it," which, ironically enough, I like very much!

Happy New Years!

I actually made it through East Coast and Central time zone New Years! Almost made it to Pacific New Years, but dozed off from ten 'til midnight to ten after... oh well, still counts. I guess...

Let's start the new year off right!
