Shopping is work - right?

Talk about awkward...last night I was at dinner with my boss and his wife. It was lovely with wine and dessert. The whole nine yard. As we were waiting in the valet line my boss looks at me and says that he may no be in tomorrow; he and is wife have some errands to run. She looks strait at him and says, "No, I didn't mean for you to take the day off. I wanted Allison to take the day off; I'd rather go shopping with her." WOW - I just trumped my boss in level of shopping ability. It was super funny and uncomfortable all at the same time.

When my boss is in town we carpool, not to save gas or help the environment, but to allow his wife to have the car to run errands and what not. I picked him up this morning and he was giving me my itinerary for today which includes a 2 hour drive to Fredericksburg to buy a pink flamingo yard art thing and eating Mexican food.

I don't know about you but that is what I call a fantastic J-O-B!

Brown Eyed Girl recently awarded me with the Premium Meme 2009 Award!

"To accept this award, the recipient must list 7 traits about themselves and then pass the award onto 7 other bloggers who deserve recognition for the personality they share through their blog."

1. Procrastination - obviously I'll do just about anything to waste time. I've come to find out that this may or may not be the end of me.

2. Independent - Most of the time I try to do everything on my own. I'm not the kind of girl that needs someone to do something for me. This doesn't mean it I can't delay getting things done.

3. Dependable - You ask and you shall receive. Let's be honest sometimes you might not even ask but you shall still receive.

4. Messy - There are 2 places in my life that are messy; my bedroom and my office. I don't know why I can't seem to keep my crap picked up there but it just doesn't happen very often - SORRY

5. Organized - Yes, you can be organized and messy at the same time. You name an item and I can tell you exactly where it is. Except the packing tape and scissors - those things are always lost.

6. Creative - I can't explain how the flower arrangements are formed but I can see exactly what it will look like before I start. Some people tell me that is creativity; my mom calls it magic.

7. Sarcastic - You better believe I'll give you a smart ass response to any question you ask. My family will tell you that I was a sarcastic even before I went to college and started talking out loud.

Thanks again Brown Eyed Girl for the award! Now I would like to pass it along to the following bloggers...

My Great Big Canvas
Chris, Tracy & Carter
Strictly Dilly Dally
Frugal Girl's Guide to Austin

Either no one reads this stupid blog anymore or you people are to chicken to make a comment. So anyway I guess I'll keep posting about random crap until there's a recommendation.

Anyone out there know anything about Baltimore? My brother and I are going there on our BS weekend over Labor Day. We are definitely attending at least two baseball games so that will mostly take care of a few nights...but we would like cool bars for after if you know of any. We've agreed on the National Aquarium and going to mass at the basilica. We are totally open for suggestions including cool things to do, restaurants (we LOVE seafood, well really any food), and site seeing. Please hook a sister up.

What's Happening

Ok so blogging isn't going so great. My life is in dullsville right now; it's too hot outside and I don't have anything to talk about (shocking I know). I begging for ideas...maybe you guys can give me a little inspiration. Have any questions you're dying to ask or anything you'd like my opinion on?

Everybody Can Suck It!

She started the show with a moonwalk tribute you the late MJ; and you better believe that Kathy Griffin was so funny last night. There was talk of MJ and Paris and Oprah. Of course her mom was the topic of many laughs in her moo moo and box of wine. There wasn't one group she didn't make fun of and it was side splitting. I wasn't really down with hate she put on Mrs. Palin but I can deal. I had a blast hanging out with Peddler and her mom and my mom too!

Meeting Up

Well here is a list of places that you are sure not to meet cute single guys.

1. My parents' pool...mostly young neighbors, friends, and family.

2. The snow cone stand....high school girls and families.

3. The grocery store...despite my intern's insistence I still haven't seen any prospects.

4. My office...sitting behind the desk is getting me nowhere fast.

And here are some places that could be promising.

1. The driving range...just a hook or a slice away from getting noticed.

2. Free long as my brother isn't mistaken for my date, again.

3. Lowes...maybe the cute guy in the appliance section will be able help.

Stay tuned....

Broken Up and Back Together

I know most of you have wondered where the hell I've been. We'll my blog and I had a fight and I won. So we broke up for the month of June off and now we're back together to annoy you some more. Session ended on June 1st and the started again yesterday. It's only suppose to last until tomorrow but I'll believe it when I see it.

On the dog front I got denied again (well maybe someone else was picked) but they don't give you the details. I don't want a purse dog but I don't need a 100 lbs either. I'm taking a break from that and will revisit the options later in the summer. Thanks to everyone that laughed at the fact that you can get denied a rescue is even funnier the second time around.

I'm also on twitter now I get some more followers that I actually know then I'll start posting my funny one liners!
