Just Like College

So.... remember in college when you used to do ANYTHING besides what you were actually supposed to be doing??? Right well here I am instead of reviewing 400 pages of AIDS research that I have to know by tomorrow in order to not look like a complete idiot tomorrow when I have to go to a meeting with my company..... looks like somebody is going to have a "Hot Sundae" moment a la Saved by the Bell fame where Jesse becomes addicted to caffeine pills.... and don't act like you people don't know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. So a couple things tonight that made me happy

1). Realizing I love me some Emma Thompson for the following reasons: "Angels in America," "Wit," "Love Actually,""Sense and Sensibility," and "Much ado about nothing" several movies of which I watched after work while "reviewing" my material.

2). LOGO again, leave it to the gay network to bring me the harrowing story of a man trying to open up a bar, and becoming drunk in the process and making an ass out of himself... it doesn't hurt that the man in question could crack walnuts with his pecs and choke a bear with his thighs....

3). throwing the ball for the dog.... such an underrated activity

4). Wingstop...if you don't know you're missing out

5). Figuring out that the conference call you'll be on tomorrow will be all in English so I don't have to freak out about knowing vocabulary in french like "Ejaculatory fluids" and "Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy"..... which I've looked up anyways cuz I'm a dweeb like that.

Well hopefully at somepoint tonight I'll get some sleep, if not then I'm dipping back into the old days where I'd stay out all night and then bust out the preparation H, dab a little under the eyes, get myself a latte and a marlboro light and be the EF on my way, fingers crossed people..

OMG, that Saved by the Bell ep was just on last week- I stayed home from work one day and caught it. "I'm so excited...I'm so excited...I'm so...SCARED!" Good stuff.

You're not the only one who didn't get much sleep last night, my friend.... I'll be hitting the coffee hard today myself. Good luck keeping your eyes open!

Pumpkin Spice Latte's are my new lovers.... also buy 7 get the 8th one free from the starbucks in the safeway by my office?? Praise Prada I think so!!

Definitely my favorite SbtB ep, followed closely by any of the summer special season with a young Leah Remini.

If you have a big dog (lab, etc.), try hitting a tennis ball with a racket for the dog to go get - they love it and the distance is spectacular.

Oh, and nothing beats my weekly Venti skim no-whip peppermint mocha. I only have it once a week to maximize impact (Thursday is looking like my day this week). Plus, the peppermint masks coffee breath. Perf.

Dale said...

Leah Remini who's father owned the beach resort place where they all worked? totally priceless.

Good get on the masking of the coffee breath! I keep a thing of toothpaste and an extra toothbrush, for some reason I get fuzzy teeth after having one of Starbucks ridiculous concoctions!

I love the tennis ball idea! will definitely try it this afternoon.

You got it Dale!!! Leah played Stacy. Great episodes.

I used to like the Ginger Spice Latte, but the pumpkin spice is so much better. The Starbucks at 16th and U is unique, they seem to purchas an excess of the spice flavorings, and generally have them all year round.

I just had my first Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino on Saturday. So good!
