"I appreciate my running mate," said Bush. "He's not the prettiest man in the race, but he's got sound judgment."

WTF??? I don't care what our politicians look like. Why did Bush comment on Cheney's looks? Because he thinks Kerry chose Edwards for his good looks? Heh. Dumbass.

Contemplate, contemplate, contemplate.
Le sigh.

Job here: boring as all. Most of the people I work with are friendly. Hate the afternoon commute, but now I go to the gym and that makes me happy. Good benefits. Not doing anything that may advance my career. I would like another job, but time to search for another job can't happen here and other opporunities are slim.

Yesterday, Tony told me that the company he works for is looking to hire an office manager. Yes, i am interested. Drawbacks: start-up. Although they are already making a very good profit, I still wouldn't feel secure. No benefits have been put in place yet.

I still need to update my resume. I could have done it last night, but for some reason, I felt like organizing my cds was much more interesting. Why do I dread the resume business so much? Bleh. Blehbleh. I think I shall email aaron and tell him that I am interested and will get him my resume soon.

Sure, having benefits is nice, but my brain needs some activity. It's so hard to get up and come to a job you don't like. I've been here before.

Inducement happens tomorrow evening. Although Cameron has been content hanging out in Jenn, I hope he doesn't take too long to enter this world. I've heard labor is only easy with drugs.

I'm going to the chiropractor now. 3x a week for awhile. I should get all of this stuff done while I have benefits. The Dentist is next!

This weekend, it was hotter than hot. Somehow, we survived.

Thursday night: Goldie's = pool & darts. Tony & I are both getting better at the pool playing, but we still aren't good. I still suck at darts, but I just started playing.

Friday: I got to leave work 30 minutes early, but it took me 1.5 hours to get home!!! I hurriedly took a shower before Tony came over. We then met Julie at Blue C Sushi for some yummy eats and then finally went and saw Spider-Man 2. Afterwards, T & I headed back up to the Hill for a drink at Broadway Grill.

Saturday: too hot to do anything! Tony & I went to brunch at Crave and then drove around on his motorcycle in a feeble attempt to stay cool. I had a massage appointment with Stine at 2:30. T went to the grocery while I was there to pick us up some dinner. He then picked me up after my massage and we went to my house for a little bit. We then went to his house and sat around trying to move as little as possible because it was so damn hot. Later that evening, we went over to Amanda's cool basement apartment to watch Hellboy.

Sunday: it finally cooled off a bit. Yay! Chris came and picked us up and we headed to Angie & Jesse's baby welcoming party. It was fun! They figured they should have a gathering before they had the baby and their lives become focused on the little one.

I found this article very interesting. Both Tony & I have gained weight this year for no particular reason, so I've been reading up on lots of stuff.

If you read this, send me an email. I'm curious to see if anyone reads this.
Why did I buy a sugary snack food at Trader Joe's earlier this week? Because I was hungry! I regret it now! I am far too sensitive to sugar now to eat that crap without it causing a spike in my blood sugar. It makes it so difficult to sit still!

This weekend: baby shower
Next weekend: housewarming party
Forever: everyone's is growing older and settling down. yet, I don't feel old.

I don't know what to get my parents for their 60th birthdays next month. Tony's b-day is next month also. So is our year anniversary. Yes, a year. Holy guacomole!

Tonight, I'm going over to Teresa's to meet her bunnies and to have dinner with her, Leslie and Darlene. Teresa is an aunt as of last week. Jenn, I'm ready whenever you and Cameron are! I even set up an online gallery. Where's my nephew?

Must focus on the work now. I wish my back wasn't giving me the pain. Bleh.

I am bored.
I am so bored that I am finding it difficult to motivate myself to do anything.
I really, really hate this kind of boredom.
I am in need of a job that stimulates my brain.

Last night, we watched Outfoxed. It wasn't the best of documentaries, but it was alright. I'm not recommending that you go out and buy it, but watch it if you know someone who did buy it.

On Wednesday, Tony & I went to Goldie's for some cheap pool playing fun. Only $.75 a game! So much cheaper than the Garage. We also played some darts and couldn't avoid listening to the karaoke contest going on. We had fun :)

Tonight, I'm meeting Amie, Natalie, Sunny, and Julie at Broadway Grill for drinks and nachos. Tomorrow, it's party time at Ira, Joel & Mark's house. They've got a pool and a hot tub!

OK, I suppose I should try and muster up some brain activity and do some "work".

The low down:

- Screech is fat. He's too fat to clean his butt now. It's grody.
- I've uploaded new photos in my album. Check out Bunnies, Portland and July 4th
- I have been eating enough fish to deplete the ocean. Last night, Tony made us dinner - lovely seared tuna steaks. They totally reminded me of filet minon. He looked at me funny when I said that, but it's been so many years since I've had the steak.
- Sunday, Sandi had a bbq. We had salmon burgers. They were pretty tasty.
- Saturday, we went out for vonderful sushi at a fancy place. Oh my it was glorious.
- Friday, we had no fish

In other activies:

Friday, we met up with Julie, Scott, Jerimiah, Chris, Sunny and Sol at Broadway Grill for the nachos and the drink. Garrett met us there later. We then headed to Sunset Bowl where we met up with Ira, Johnny and Ginger for a fun night of bowling. Everyone had a blast. Tony bowled a freaking 215!!!

Saturday, we went to this place called Crave for brunch. It was the yummiest! I had bagel with lox & cream cheese. Oh my! That afternoon, we went and saw Anchorman with Julie, Will and Sunny. T & I thought it was just OK, but the rest loved it. After indulging in sushi with Chris, Tony & I went to the Garage for overpriced pool. $14 an hour! Jeezumcrow! Although we had fun, we will not be going there again. After the pooling fun, we went to the Merc for a very short while. After arriving there, I realized I was not in the mood to dance.

Sunday, we met up with Chris and went to Crave again. Serious! It's that good! That afternoon, we bbq'd with Sandi's crew and Stine. Joser showed up much later. That night, T & I hung out at his house and watched a DVD of _Dead Like Me_ I suppose it's OK.

Yesterday, I bought our plane tickets to SoCal for next month.

Oh yeah! Teresa is now a bunny addict. She's adopting two bunnies this week and bought a pen to keep them in in her condo. She's the bunny queen!

Last Wednesday, we saw another excellent movie called Control Room. It's release is quite limited, but so worth it if you are able to catch it.

We pondered going to see Spiderman 2 this weekend, but ran out of time. Instead, we shopped and shopped and shopped. On Saturday, we got me a new helmut and now I feel much safer on the back of Tony's motorcycle. We also got Tony a fish tank w/ accessories. Fun!

On Sunday, we went to a made-up Superhero themed bbq. It was quite fun. I'll post pictures as soon as I can. After the bbq, we went over to Sol's house to watch the fireworks. I must admit, they are much more exciting from Gasworks Park.

Monday, we lazed around and didn't do much of anything. I took Teresa to the bunny gathering again (she's addicted) and then we went out for yummy Thai food. Afterwards, I went home and dyed my hair. Exciting stuff, I tell you!

Still, I wasn't quite ready for my weekend to end. Now, we plan our trip down to SoCal.
