I've got so many New Years resolutions for 2007, more than any other year. I don't think I've ever felt as compelled to follow them before either. It's really a bizarre feeling but it's good..... really good.

It was a fantastic four days! I can't tell you how many times we talked about moving here.....maybe someday we'll be that lucky!

Pdubs on vacation last weekend.

I'm off to CO this afternoon. I'm excited to take a few days off but I'm nervous for the flight. It's not that I'm afraid of flying or anything, it's just that I'm sensitive to the pressure changes and it makes me anxious and tense.....if that makes sense (ha! I rhymed). To put it plainly, it feels like you have little tiny, ear canal-sized balloons that fill up as the plane gets higher in altitude and even though you pop your ears it's never enough -- the little balloons never stop filling up until you start to land. .... my head hurts just thinking about it. DERP.

So the other night I was buzzing around the net trying to find anything that would spark some sort of idea of what my dad would really love for christmas. After about 25 minutes, I finally end up at amazon, flipping through some DVD titles. I picked out a few classics but I forgot to renew my credit card on that site so I was out of luck anyway.

Before I logged off the site, I looked up one of my favorite christmas movies ever; Scrooged. I never thought Bill Murray was funny as a kid but now I find him very amusing. Anyhoo, I remembered this part in the movie (mind me, I've been obsessed with movies lately) where Bill Murray's character is standing in front of his set and this guy comes up to him with a mouse in his hand. The set guy is like "sir, i've tried and tried but I can't glue these antlers on the mouses head!" Bill Murray, god bless him, says "did you try staples?" I died.

I'm worried. Have I honestly gotten this cynical? I used to react to those types of things with a "what?! ohhhh! I can't believe he just said that." I've seriously turned into a contemptuous jerk face. I'm very concerned about this. I need to reevaluate whether or not I like this side of myself. ..... blog, I'll get back to you.

ok so there's this part in National Treasure that always makes me laugh whenever I replay it in my head and for some reason I thought of it again this morning. For those who've seen it, remember the part where Riley gets all excited because he knows that daylight savings time didn't start until the twentieth century and Ben & Abigail didn't? my favorite part is when Riley says "No, we didn't. We didn't miss it because... you don't know this? I know something about history that you don't know?! .... Hold on one second, let me just take in this moment. This is cool. Is this how you feel all the time? Well, except now."

I felt like that yesterday and it was awesome. It was like driving a ball from the tee and landing 2 yards from the pin while you're on the phone with your boss and you find out you're getting a promotion and a raise, then finding a fifty on the green. sweeeeet.

I totally opened a holiday gift box this morning that was intended for the people upstairs. Oooops! Now I'll probly have to dispose all of the delicious chocolate candy so there's no evidence of any villiany. Mmmmmm chocolate evidence.....

Speaking of bad calories, I've been seriously working on changing my everyday diet. So far, I've been quite successful in eating healthier and reducing the amount of food I eat during the week. Combined with a new cardio regimen 3 days a week, I've been feeling really good about myself which is nice. My only flaw is that when I get to the weekend, I COMPLETELY blow it. And I don't mean like I don't run or I slip and have like a candybar or something - I mean I completely lose it. It all starts with pizza, then it moves to pizza bread, then the next day it's cold pizza (I freakin love cold pizza), then it's fast food, then it's cake or popsicles, then hours upon hours of tv, then chips and dip...it's terrible. The whole rest of the week I'm trying to work off all of the crap I digested during the weekend. I swear man, it's a vicious cycle and it all starts with the gateway drug : pizza.

There should be a patch similar to the nicotine patch - but for pizza.

god i love pizza.

My brother is moving to our other building. He came in yesterday and stole the computer for his new office and then told me I better snatch up the space before anyone else tries to move in. I told him that I'd consider the thought.

To be honest, I don't want to move in his old office. If I do, it only means that him moving down the street is permanent and I'd rather pretend that it's only temporary. I know he's focusing on getting his welding shop back up and running and I understand but still, this sucks. I'm singled out as the "rookie" of the office again and I can't tell you how insane that word makes me (but that's for another post). At least when he was here, we were like a little support group for each other. Now he's the go-to guy for welding & machines.

Don't get me wrong, he's a freakin genius when it comes to that stuff and I'm so happy that he's the head guy over there - I think it's a good solid career move for him ...........I guess........welll.....it's just that it's lonely at the bottom of the food chain. I miss him. :(
