Long Long Week

Ok, so it’s been a long long week, and it’s been a while since I last updated. Sorry normal readers!

Lets see, highlights…

Last Tuesday was good, sushi and all that.

Wed was lots of proof-of-concept work for both the consulting and for my real job. Speaking of, OG and the guys at the office are starting up a consulting business. Very exciting stuff. I’ve already got two potential projects for me. After work I went over to Andrew’s and got the charger for the iPod and hung out for a short bit. Went home, biked for a while and then went out and played tennis with Jon. We both sucked. Me more so. It was good to get one-on-one time hanging out with him. He’s a nice guy. 🙂

Also ran into Ty there, apparently he lives in the apartments RIGHT next to the tennis courts. It was random. After we were done with that we went back to our own places, showered and then met back up at Joel’s place. We all went out to dinner and then hung out the rest of the night.

Thursday, was a long day at work. Meetings in Santa Monica, and driving there and back. Though I did get to drive the boss’ 530i BMW. That was hot! We also went to this place to eat where a freaking salad was $15! Thank god the boss paid! Then meetings later in the day for the consulting stuff, and the boy there was uber hot!. Then packing and all that. Ugh, crazyness. Is this what it felt like to be popular in HS, constantly busy? lol. I left my fucking apartment at 5:30 that morning and didn’t get home till 8pm. Ugh.

There was also LOTS of talk of me moving up to Santa Monica during that meeting and just in general from the VP himself. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

Friday was just work and then the flight, LONG fucking day. My Scope for that day said: “For now, writing in your journal or blog could be the best answer.”… 😀

The plane ride on friday was fine. I got moved from seat 33, all the way up to 11 and had the whole row to myself, so that was really nice. we left about 30 minutes late, but got in on time. ORD was a mess though, they were doing all this construction in the baggage claim. I honestly don’t know why I bothered with that. Ugh. Got out of there and went to the Car rental place.

Got there and they were like, “well we’re out of Kia Rio’s so we’ll have to give you a PT Cruiser”. So I was just like, “whatever, i just want a fucking car to go home”. So she pulls it up and it’s a freaking PT Convertable! How fun. I left there and traffic was fine. I drove for like an hour with the top down, but then it got too cold. It was kinda cool, you would really tell when you were going through the cold front, cause it went from 80 in Chicago, down to 50 about an hour outside of ORD, and then a few hours later it went back tup to 66.

Sometime I really need to take a road trip out to Chicago when I’m not in a hurry. There’s so much random stuff along I-80 that I want to take pictures of.. Such as “What Cheer, IA” and The worlds largest truck stop and some other really random stuff.

I was able to talk to people for like the first three hours of the trip. Talked to Andrew for like an hour, and then talked to Robert for like 2 hours. It was pretty entertaining. Finially got into my house at 4am and everyone in the house was up. It was so random. Went to bed and got up at about 8 that morning.

Hung around the house talking to the Parents and playing in the pond and stuff like that. We all went out to lunch and got Sushi then came back to the house. Where I realized I had forgotten a belt and my mom hated the way my shirt fit. So her and I went back out to the Mall and bought two new shirts and a new belt. The boys in the mid-west are so yummy!

Got back home and it was time to head out to see Angel so I drove over to Ankeny and picked her up. We went to chili’s and I SWORE the guy hosting was Adam, it was really creepy. But then once he turned and looked at us, it was clearly not him. But it was still really creepy.

From dinner we went back to my house and waited for everyone else to show up. It ended up being, Vero, Zach, Mandy, Angel, Ginny, Oksana, Nic and this random guy that Ginny brought who was pretty cute, but sadly straight. We all hung out there for a while and then headed downtown. Hung out at the Royal Mile and then hit up The Lift ! Yay for $5 martinis! 😀 Had a really great night. Sadly Jenks couldn’t make it. :'(

At the lift there was this REALLY hot boy in a purple shirt. They kept trying to get me to go talk to him. JJ said that I should go put a dollor down his pants and say, “This is for later when you are stripping for me” haha. As we were leaving Ginny went up to him and gave him my number. He never called. 🙁

Ginny was also wearing the most adorable jacket! I stole it for the night. Pictures will be posted as soon as I get them from her! 😀

OH, I also watched the two episodes of Penn & Teller: Bullshit. That show is GREAT. Everyone should go watch it. Specially the Boy Scout one (Here’s the torrent).. Steven Cozza, I love you!

Got home about midnight and just crashed hard core.

Sunday was easter. It was really good to see everyone there, the best part was my grandma’s face when she saw me get out of the car. 🙂

Left there about 1 and headed out to Chicago. The drive was fine till I got 40 miles from Chicago… When traffic STOPPED. It took 2.5 hours to go 40 miles! I was so stressed out and just started crying in the car. Ugh. I finially got to the hotel, which was very easy to find. It’s so adorable too. There’s wall paper with GIANT blueberries, and a purple wall and I’m on the 12th floor with a pretty good view of the city. There’s also all these cute Haiju’s on all the lit stuff in the room. It’s ADORABLE!

I weighed myself on my mom’s scale, I’m at the lowest I’ve been in like a year, but yet for some reason I feel the fattest I’ve been in a long time. I dunno why!

On the drive here I saw a sign that said “6-6-06 The signs are all around you” and the -‘s were all upside down crosses… it was REALLY wierd!

My scope for Sunday was this: “You are at the very front edge of an intellectual storm that may have your nerves standing up at attention. This is a highly interactive phase and you are mentally up for whatever challenge come your way. You can be clever, even brilliant over the next month, but it will be wasted if you don’t finish what you start.” Kinda creepy.

I had the most random dreams about my job interview on Sunday night. But I slept SO well in this amazing bed! Got up at 8:30 and walked up to the school to see where it was, and then came back to the hotel and got ready for my interview….. I was SOOOOO NERVOUS!

BUT! The interview itself went GREAT! I asked a ton of questions about the place, and what’s going ond all that. You could tell that he was VERY surprised about how old I was. But I think I impressed them anywyas. The interview itself lasted a full 2 hours and we did lunch as well… And oh, the boys at the school… Yum yum! 😀 I guess I’m one of 7 people interviewing for the job, and I’m the ONLY person they offered to fly out! So that must be good news at least.

While we were eating lunch though, I was sitting there and BOTH of my legs cramped up so badly. I wanted to jump up and scream, but I sat there and just smiled… I’m so good like that. haha.

One possible issue though is that the boss man had a picture of the Pope in his office? Random! Also.. There was a nun sitting next to me on the plane. Random again?!

There were TONS of hot boys on the plane too… Made me so horny. :'(

But now that the stress of the interview is gone, I’ve got even more stress of just living and working currently. With the talk of moving to Santa Monica, comes the fact that I’ll have to dress more business casual, instead of street bum, like I currently do. Also comes the stress of moving, friends, etc etc etc. So no matter what happens with the Chicago job, there’s still lots of stress in my life.

Being back in So Cal Is kinda nice though, because at least here it takes more then 2 idiots to cause atraffic problem, and drviing 80 is the norm, instead of this shit about driving the speed limit. But alas, we shall see what all happens.

Eh, no one drives the speed limit here. Unless you’re from out of town. Out of state plates get pulled over before instate do. I drove 70-75 all the way home on Friday and 75 from DSM to Cedar Rapids, 60-65 from Cedar Rapids to IL (via highway 30), and 70-75 the rest of the trip. Rush hour time is always crazy and slow. I usually just blast the radio and do the wait in traffic thing. Cant go faster, cant go slower, cant get off, cant get on, so why freak out about it if there’s nothing you can do to change it?

Yeah, it’s true. But I seemed to get stuck behind all these people who liked to drive 70 right next to each other and held up the whole interstate. Just very frustarting!

Nothing beats seeing your Grandma’s face light up when she sees you. That spells love.

How could you get horny sitting next to a nun?

Sounds like you had a good trip though.
