Pot luck post

Blogosphere friends, I am so sorry to have been gone. My work schedule has been absolutely insane here lately. Like I said in my short post, I didn't know that work actually required working all day. I mean, I typically have time to check my email, read some blogs and even post. Well not recently, my coworker was sick and since the economy has drained my office I got to pick up her job and do both. Talk about fun.

So anyways, I am crossing my fingers that I am back (at least for awhile). Instead of doing a traditional post, I decided I would just post some random stuff about the last week in one bit pot luck post.

  • I rode a bicycle for the first time in probably 15 years. I loved it! I basically stole my friends road bike. I decided I am going to get one, but all the ones on craigslist are either old and crappy or way too much. So if anyone would like to contribute to the Trixie Bicycle Fund, email me at swooningthecity@gmail.com. :)
  • My dog has decided that using the designated "poopy areas" are not to her liking, probably because people aren't cleaning up after themselves. The last few times when I've walked her we have stopped at the designated area and wait, and wait and wait. I get impatient and I'm not kidding you about 10 feet later she decides she needs to go. This is not good, and yes sorry it is so random and kind of gross.
  • I've been having late night rendezvous. Last weekend my friend and I decided to drive around the city looking for walking/biking tracks. We found a few and, without flashlights, walked them in the dark. It was really fun getting out and walking.
  • During our walking trips we found a group of pot heads smoking in the park. It was so funny because when they saw us one took off running and the others tried to play it cool. I was so tempted to yell, "Police, don't move." Unfortunately I didn't have time because they ran from their smoke cloud into the truck parked by.
  • I decided I am a loyal fan of Google, there is no changing my mind. At work the default search engine is Bing and I tried using it twice. I hate it. It never seems to give me the results that Google does so I have made public my love for Google.
  • I watched "I Love You Man" and thought it was totally awesome. I did think that the relationship the guys had was a little awkward though. Do those kind of things exist?
  • I've been sick. I have no idea what happened, but I lost my voice almost completely for about a week. While I am sure that some of my coworkers enjoyed my lack of talking, I sure didn't. I am feeling better now, but still have a slight cough. I think my allergies just decided to go crazy on me.
  • I am about to commit myself to a masters program. I graduated in 2006 from college and since then have said time and again that I would start my next degree program. Unfortunately I have been seriously lazy and haven't done so. Well, I started doing some research and think I have finally decided that I am going to get my MBA in Organizational Leadership. Now, to just get to filling out the enrollment application and write my essays.
Well, I hope you all have had a great week. I feel a bit out of the loop since I have disappeared.

I hope work calms down for you soon. I hate it when I lose my voice, it is actually really painful. My vocal chords felt like they were burning all the time.

Good luck in grad school!

Lots on your plate! :) I wondered where you had run off to, but figured you'd gotten super busy. Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well, but I hope you're doing better now! Also, congrats on the grad school decision. How exciting! I am very, very close to deciding on going to Law school... After getting an MA in Architecture, I could not be further from Law, but it is something I have always wanted to do... we'll see! :)
