Bits and Pieces

A few thoughts for a Friday:

In just 4 hours, I'll be off to enjoy an entire week of vacation. Therefore, I can't concentrate on anything else today. Not that I have any work to do anyway, but...

Someone in another cube (oh, I know precisely who it is) is typing with a vengence again. The space bar could shatter at any moment it sounds like. I'm not being's so loud other people have discussed with me how unbelievably annoying it is. Thank goodness for iPods. I may go deaf, but at least I didn't fly into a rage and rip someone's thumbs off.

I went running on Wednesday morning and to a pilates class (purely by accident, I thought it was going to be yoga) Thursday morning. In so doing, I have achieved a full body ache. However, my new schedule allows me to both work out, do my job, and enjoy my evenings. Who knew.

I've been thinking about serendipity lately. Not the bad John Cusack movie (and haven't they mostly all been bad since Say Anything?). I'm talking about the moment when you wake up one morning and realized that, through no manipulations or engineering on your part, your world has mysteriously fallen into place and in a better way than you could have ever planned for yourself. I'm not sure how that fits in with my belief in free will. I'm not sure I care. I'm that sap who suddenly thinks maybe some things do happen for a reason. Whatever. Make fun. I'm too busy doing the serendipity-dip (a little like the electric slide) to care.

My cat needs to go to obedience school. She's the devil in a thinly veiled disguise lately. I have the scratch on my nose to prove it.

I'm spending a few days of my vacation in Chicago. Plans include: going to the art museum, shopping, pretending Lake Michigan is an ocean, sending schmoopy text messages back to StL., and trying an all veggie diner I read about online.

The iPhone comes out today...I will go on using my sad ass LG phone.

The new book I was so excited to get from Amazon is really slow and boring. I am deeply disappointed by this and the poor synopsis I read that led me to purchase this book. I do, however, still have an unopened copy of Glamour to put away at the pool this weekend.

My new favorite show is The Office...I know, I'm a little late, but the dvd episodes are priceless.

Tonight is going to be a good time. I can't wait!

Have a wonderful weekend...I'm sure I'll have something or other to write about when I get back from vacation.
