Last Annoyance: my co-workers thwarted my plan to swing by my apartment on my way back from lunch so I could get something I left in my apartment... they all rode with me and I TOLD them that I had to run by my house and they said they'd get rides back with other people and guess what - all the other people rode in one car and there was no room and then I didn't want to waste everyone's time by running by my apartment because if someone did that it would annoy me if I were stuck in the car and needing to get back to work so I came straight back here instead and now I will have more traffic to deal with on my way out of town because I have to go home afte work. Grrr.
Last Disappointment: Is it a disappointment when you expected it? The last disappointment that I presently care to share: I couldn't get through to 107.5 when they were giving away Rockettes tickets even though I knew the answer to the trivia question! Some other girl got my Rockette tickets. Boo.

After purchasing Evelyn the Evergreen, and listening to Christmas music in our condo, I am really in the holiday spirit. This has led me to do a little bit of thinking as to what I would like for Christmas this year. Since they don't make boxes big enough for husbands or a singing career, I have come up with four simple alternatives. These four items are all that I want. I would be lucky to get just one, as they are all great gifts.
1. Did you know that Talledega Nights comes out on DVD this December 12? Of course the masterminds in Hollywood planned this, knowing that those of us who saw this movie in theaters more than one time (me) would either buy the movie themselves, or getfor it for Christmas. I guarantee you that by Dec. 25, one or the other will have happened. Shake and bake!
2. Hobo's Loretta wallet is the perfect size to either use as a clutch, or just throw in your purse. It will even hold my cell phone. As pretty of a shade this blue is, I prefer classic black.
3. I'm still holding out for a Chi straightener. I love my Target straightener and all, but the Chi heats up and cools off faster, is a lot easier to pack, doesn't damage your hair as much, and most importantly, since the on/off switch is on the inside of the handle, I can store it in the bottom drawer of my wooden desk without worrying that I am accidentally turning it back on when I put it away and it will catch my desk and condo on fire when I am at work. SOLD!
4. The Devil Wears Prada is another great movie that - surprise! - is coming out just in time for Christmas. Loved the book, loved the movie.

Dear 'While It Lasts' 50% Off Grocery Store,
I can understand clothes, toys, or even candy being sold at "discount prices." But if food is marked 50% off, there's a reason for it. How you stay in business I'll never know.
Dear Entire Nation,
Say it with me now: Britney - WE TOLD YOU SO.
Dear Everyone That Is Harassing Me Because Georgia Beat Auburn,
My worst day as a Tiger is still better than your best day as an (insert stupid mascot name here). Besides, other than Arkansas or Florida, do any of us really have room to talk? Bama v. MSU? LSU v. AU? GA v. KY? UT v. FL? Exactly.

laugh‧ing‧stock /ˈlæfɪŋˌstɒk, ˈlɑfɪŋ-/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[laf-ing-stok, lah-fing-] –noun an object of ridicule; the butt of a joke or the like...
Look closely in that middle picture and you'll see Shula congratulating Slyvester Croom. Not just for the win, but because he'll probably get Shula's job in a few weeks. Cheer up Bama, you're still ahead of MSU in the conference standings... by one game!

It's a blah day, it's a blah week, it's a blah everything.
Experiencing the true meaning of the trickle down effect with some big changes at work this week. And struggling with trying to be a light in what is starting to appear to be a pretty dark world. 'Dark' may not be the right word, but 'secular' sounds too much like something Coach Richey would say and makes me feel pretty pompous. Maybe the best way to say it is that I am having a hard time shining this little light of mine in a place where I know it needs shining the most. Hide it under a bushel? NO!
Speaking of hiding, it was so foggy on my way to work this morning, I couldn't even see the buildings downtown. Lifeway, Bellsouth, Renaissance, L&C... couldn't see any of them! It was weird. It made the city so look so boring with no skyline. I couldn't see past Union Station, and even that I could only see when I got right up to it. Not sure why there's a giant cloud on Nashville. Maybe God is putting a lid on us, trying to contain all the drama that has been flowing freely from this town (like Corker-Ford stuff). It reminded me of the cotton balls that come stuffed in the top of pill bottles. Maybe there's a giant cotton ball on top of the city to keep us from getting broken from so much ridiculous political shaking. How's that for a metaphor?
Thank you for not being very good this year. Should my plan to watch you "play" Auburn fail, at least I won't feel like I'm missing that much.
Dear Putting On My Shoes and Getting Into My Car,
You do realize that you're the hardest part of going to the gym, right?
Dear Free Weekends,
See you next year!
Dear Thursday Night,
The OC, Grey's Anatomy AND 'Til Death AT THE SAME TIME?!?! What did I ever do to you?!
Dear New Entrance Into My Gym,
I knew it'd been a while since I'd been here, but could you be a little less obvious about it? Thanks.
While I thought 2006 pretty much set a record with 20 different weddings on the calendar, so far, you've got already 6, and it's just November. Impressive!
It's November 1! Applications to be my Date to my sister's wedding are now available! You think I'm kidding? Ask me for one! They're funny!
