i heart aemart

California is lucky to have you! Miss you already and cannot wait to visit!!

two girls, one brain...

Sometimes Courtney and I have these moments where we share a brain and have the EXACT same thoughts and the exact same time. It strange and happens frequently. Here is an example- I promise I did not read her blog before I posted mine.

@#$% jury duty...

This will hopefully be me tomorrow...or maybe by some miracle they won't pick my number- they give you number and you have to call the night before to see if they need you and mine is fairly high so maybe, maybe, maybe luck will be on my side. Although I have a sneaking suspicion that I will have to drag myself down to the courthouse in the morning. Yuck. I need to seriously channel Paris Hilton and say things like "What's Wal-Mart? Do they sell walls there?"or anything else that would make me sounds as stupid as possible.
I wonder if you're allowed to text??? Hmmm...

tip of the day

This was a tip from on how to stay awake at work-

Ask your co-workers to scare you. If they have a sense of humor, they'll delight in finding ways to pop out from behind your desk or around the corner, and it'll get your adrenaline rushing.

I would love to have that conversation..."Um, hey co-worker, could you just scare the crap out of me a few times a day? That would be GREAT, thanks!"

delightful little detour

yesterday when i was driving home from work going a way that i usually wouldn't (i needed some shoe shopping therapy) i noticed a very handsome -hot, gorgeous, fill-in which ever word you like- fellow jogging down the street. then i realized- I KNOW THAT GUY!!! he was my high school crush! my reason for waking up monday through friday at some ungodly hour- school started at 7:45!! what can i say? the guy is just...dreamy and such a sweetheart. swoon.

Get off of them caribous, girl

"Her choice of shoes is wrong, for me," she said, quite seriously. "I think she needs a nice, fierce pump, honey. Those open-toe, old, Gucci-looking throwbacks with the buckle on the front? Open-toe! With a French manicure on her toe? I'm sorry. I think she needs to be a little more refined." At this point Simmons became heated: “And she should stop jumpin' on them caribous!” she shouted. “Get off of them caribous, girl, and leave 'em alone!”

Summer should really be almost over but it just doesn't seem to want to let go. The heat keeps following me around. Every place where we went out Saturday seemed to have no air conditioning and it was one of those nights were it's still about 80 at midnight. Then I woke up to a completely unexplained power outage on another 90 degree day- although it did come back on that afternoon. And today...well, there's no a/c in my office. My brain is melting, melting, melting.

I want an old-school camera. With actual film that has to be developed. Remember those days??
Dearest Michael Phelps,

Can you please be on ALL of the TV shows that I like? Or even ones that I don't. I feel certain that you could somehow be written into Gossip Girl or Lost or 30 Rock or any show really. SNL will just not be enough...

Family History

These are pictures I found on Endangered Durham of the car dealership that was owned by my family from 1893 to 1989. I was so happy to find these!! Amazing! The first one is from 1923 and the second is from the 70's.

la lemurs

Got to have a little tour of The Lemur Center today! They are very odd little creatures but it was an interesting way to spend the morning. My job is so fun and random sometimes.

Hello Hanna!

2 Awesome things

Two awesome things to start off Friday:

1. Blair and Serena from Gossip Girl are going to be doing a guest spot on 30 Rock!! This is a TV dream come true!!

2. This website has 50 covers of songs from Madonna, Michael Jackson and Prince- since they all recently turned 50. Ryan Adams does a cover of 'Like a Virgin'- love that one! Amy Winehouse and Charlotte Church covering 'Beat It'- maybe the strangest combo ever but kind of awesome. John Legend and Stephen Colbert singing the Michael Jackson song 'The Girl is Mine' is SO freaking funny. I've never heard of this song's worth listening to.

UPDATE: Court-30 Rock comes back October 30!!!

winter faces

Talking about Solas- which has a second floor deck and an open rooftop deck.

Someone (probably Jane or Courtney): This place doesn't really work very well if it's raining outside.

Me: Yeah and what if it's winter?

After I said this I apparently- and totally unintentionally- made the face in this picture demonstrated by Jane and Courtney. We named it 'Winter Face' and proceeded to make this face all night Saturday.
