I think you need to get this when it becomes available in Feb. I saw it and immediately thought of you. (You don’t need to pose on the counter and look pants-less. Unless of course you want to, in which case whatever floats your boat…)

Am I the only one

who doesn’t like American Idol? I just don’t get it. I actually kind of loathe it being on. Of course the hub wants to watch (I swear, sometimes he is more girly than me….), but I might take a long bath whie its on. I deserve one. These past two weeks have been ridiculously stressful.

First, I got a parking ticket. No, scratch that. The valet that I left me car with two months ago got a ticket and failed to give it to me. So I got a lovely letter in the mail demanding that I pay up. Nice. Its not a cheap fine either.

Then, we had a radiator malfunction. I still have no idea what happened, but basically the thing exploded and started spewing nasty water all over the study. Did I mention the water was nasty? Because it was black and sooty and smelled awful. And of course we didn’t know any of this was going on, so it continued to spray nasty water all over the place for the better part of an hour. Awesome. We’re getting it fixed, and that also isn’t cheap (lets say its ab0ut seven times the cost of the ticket). Anyway, while the radiator was gone, we decided to take the opportunity and paint. So its all pretty now, even though it still smells kind of bad. We’re keeping out fingers crossed that there isn’t any water damage…. its kind of hard to tell. Anyone want a house? I’ll trade you for an iphone…. (I’d probabaly be getting the better end of that deal).

And on top of al that, we’re back to working full days. And I have a new, very demanding client. Which is fun (I know, I’m sick), but gosh is it exhausting! I get to work and basically don’t stop working until I leave. And the week stretches out before me and seems like it will never end. I’m pretty sure I’ll be bringing a ton of work home this weekend.

I guess all of this to say I’m exhausted. Totally drained. I’ve meant to update, but I just can’t bring myself to. If you need proof, I feel asleep last night during 24. I don’t know how I let my eyes shift away from Jack Bauer for even a second, let alone close for the entire second half of the episode!! (Thank goodness for dvr!)
