Month: December 2009

Forward

Tomorrow is a new year, a fresh start, a clean slate. I like markers.  I like new beginnings.  I like boundaries that separate “this” from “that.”  It gives me a sense of control, however misperceived. 2010 is a year of starting over, in almost every way that I possibly could – even in ways that…

I’ll never work(out) in this town again

My parents recently enrolled in a gym called Fitness 19 – named such because it’s open 19 hours a day.  Oh, Coloradans – you are so clever with your words! Due to her recent surgeries, Mom hasn’t been to Fitness 19 in awhile – leaving her membership card available to yours truly.  My workouts on…

Resident

According to the internets, I am a Colorado resident once I meet one of the following criteria: •    I have obtained employment in Colorado. •    I own or operate a business in Colorado. •    I have resided in Colorado continuously for 90 or more days.

Maybe not the most festive post, but…

I need to tell you about yesterday’s drive. Wait.  First, Merry Christmas.  Merry Christmas!  It’s heeeeeeere! Now for the rest.  It should be obvious by the fact that I’m posting this blog, but lest you wring your hands throughout the holidays, I should let you know that I made it to Colorado last night.  The…

Snow and angels

My deficit of sleep and surplus of emotion have left me with a raging case of stress acne.  Just in time for Christmas!

Christmas casserole

This weekend, Facebook really chapped my ass (a phrase that I have recently decided is very worth using).  I tried to upload pictures from the JAM House Christmas Spectacular – at which we had a fantastic time and packed our home with more people than we ever imagined – but the old ‘Book translated my…

I will never have roommates again.

And no, not because it’s been so awful. Only because nobody else could ever, ever compare. I will always be a JAM girl. And now, excuse me while I go weep.

Closing in

We are down to single digits: I am moving in 9 days. And yes, I have Christmas parties 6 of the next 9 nights.  I might run out of outfits. That said, posting may be light until after I get to Colorado.  I don’t want to miss out on a single moment of Nashville until…

Four riveting lists

Next week’s Christmas parties: Sunday night Monday night Tuesday night Wednesday night Thursday night Friday night Saturday night All I want for Christmas: Big, cheapo gold hoop earrings (so I can look fly) Earbuds that hook over my ears (to wear when I run all by my lonesome) A new guitar capo (someone stole mine…

Bad choice

I talk to people on the phone all day at work, walking them through various Computer Things.  Yesterday, while the customer’s internet connection was moving slowly and we were waiting for the page to pull up, she decided to make small talk.  She asked me if I’d seen the pictures of the coyote that got…
