Hello, my people!

Oh what to do, what to do when you're so maxed out that even the most exciting of movie topics (Vogue's The September Issue) isn't quite enough to keep you from yawning like a banshee and trying not to fall asleep in the theater?

When ONE prickly pear margarita threatens to send you to bed?

When you can't bear the thought of logging onto the network one more time today?

When Gus the Rooster alarm clock in the morning isn't even 1% funny?

IRON PILLOWCASES.

Yes. And fold them. And put them in the linen closet.

This is therapy. Not that things are going badly at all. But there is something incredibly satisfying about a task started and finished and producing a lovely result in five minutes. So opposite to the mire of the billion work need-to's I'm juggling. My linen closet is like the popular kid right now--where it's at.

Stats:
  • Days until the Twin Cities Marathon: 8
  • Months since I've swam: 2
  • Years since I was a young collegiate traipsing about France: 6
  • Pairs of neon green shoelaces I currently own: 1
  • Average daily wakeup time: 5:17am
  • Accounts I'm handling at work: 72
  • Max height of models on current season of America's Next Top Model: 5'7''
  • Times I've wanted a back rub during the last ten minutes: 10
  • Exciting Napa trips right around the corner: 1 (Yes!)

I Was Thinking


Maybe I should trade in my car for one of these.

Photos from a Wisconsin Wedding


We attended a totally cool wedding this weekend! Time to marry off another high school friend. I say that like I have more than two high school friends who are married. But still, the marriage circle has been complete, now that Mark and I are finally seeing our fellow bandie and dear friend make it official with such an awesome girl who wore a SUPER AWESOME thing in her hair for the occasion.

Ben and Melissa said their vows on a farm outside Red Wing and treated everyone to a good dose of Wisconsin cheese, California wine, and the Virginia Reel. Not a night soon forgotten! It turns out I'm a very expressive square dancer, in a good way. Sassy. My dance partner wasn't bad, either. Very good at Allemand Right/Allemand Left!

No Back to School For ME!


Man, I have not been good about updating. Late August and early September could be called a little something like Work/Marathon Medley with a Dash of Square Dancing. Fun, fun, fun on the run!
Here is a picture of my lovely Indian cocktail dress. The good news: It fits! The bad news: Like most knee-length dresses, it comes out way too short on me. As in I would almost consider wearing another skirt under it. Such is life!
