Updating with pictures a) I’m tired, b) I have tons of stuff to get done, and c) everyone likes pictures, probably much better than my rambling.
In no particular order:
Sara and I pretty much attacked Randy Price in order to get a picture with him. If you don’t live in Boston, you probably don’t know Randy, but he’s somewhat of a local celeb around here (or maybe just to us). He’s a news anchor over at channel 7 and was the host of the MSPCA Spirit of Kindness dinner we attended. He’s a huge animal lover and owns approximately 16 cocker spaniels. Not a lie. The event was completely awesome and anyone who knows me, knows how I feel about the MSPCA. And if you don’t, read my entry from last year. I can’t be getting all sentimental again.
Finally got my new Blackberry, which both excites me and makes me feel miserable. I resisted it for so long, until I realized my job/lifestyle is just not feasible without one. I hate being so dependent on my e-mail, but I have so many things going on and I can’t afford to miss e-mails throughout the day. And if I want to go out and enjoy a nice sunny afternoon, I still need to be easily reachable during the 9-5 hours. Now I can rest much easier. And um yes, I got a pink phone.
Another finally. I met Karen from Not Just Celery. I’ve been hearing about Karen from Sara for the past 3 years and seriously felt like I already met her because I’ve heard so much and am an avid reader of her blog. We had a fabulous Saturday night during which I was also asked to be the maid of honor in my sister’s wedding (another finally! I knew it was coming…but still) and got to check out the wedding venue and have an amazing dinner with the fam at Turner Fisheries.
Getting excited for my family reunion vacation now that I have a flight booked home. While I’d love to spend 7+ days in upstate New York, let’s be honest, if I don’t work, I don’t get paid. And Internet access is not exactly easy to come by on Lake Chautauqua (not to mention, I need a couple days away!). Also, I’m obsessed with Jet Blue and find flying alone to be really peaceful, especially after a nice poolside vacation where I plan on catching up on ridiculous amounts of reading, doing lots of writing, playing games with the relatives, and just spending some good quality time with them.
As usual, I ended up rambling anyway. Sigh. I’ll do some sort of real entry soon. For serious.
