Goin to Vegas tonight. SOO excited - have I said that already?

I've become an annoying packer. I packed like 7-8 days worth of clothing for a 4 day trip! I can't unpack it either - I might need some of the stuff. What if I get there and I'm not really feelin the black shirt? I need the option to wear the red! What if most people there are wearing gray pants and I only brought my tan ones? What if it's too cold to wear shorts....what if it's too warm to wear pants?

Shnikes, my luggage is so getting lost.

OMG Vegas - two days and counting. I checked the weather and intellicast says it's supposed to be in the 60s next week. It's not a perfect 80 but hell, it's not 20 either. To be frank, I really wouldn't care if we were going to Des Moines, as long as the six of us were still going somewhere. AH I'm so excited to get out of here for a few days!

I feel like I just got hit by a bus. A charter bus. Filled with hooligan underground body builders. In the middle of a riod rage. Even the driver.

I realllllly, reallllly hope that this is the end of my cold. I hate feeling this weak. It's like I can't walk up a flight of stairs without feeling like I'm gonna pass out. I hate that! Stupid cold. Stupid stupid cold. I hate you.

Today is Valentine's day which only means that I'm two weeks away from the best birthday dinner ever.......my mother's corned beef and cabbage cooked slowly in a pot of guiness for hours and hours and hours until it becomes so succulent, it melts in your mouth. AND IT'S ALL FOR ME. hoooooooo yea - I'm excited. yum yum yum. I can taste it right now and it's 8 in the morning. yum.

Today already sucks. I've been fighting to get rid of this nasty cough/sneeze/headache/sinusy thing for about a day and a half and it's not working. I may go home early today but we'll see. I just have to remember to 1) stay in my office 2) do not touch any door knobs 3) keep my tissues in my trash can.

You know what - I really dislike people who think that they can succeed in business without doing any of the work. It's even worse when they think they can brag about how they're way of getting there is smarter than the average business person. I wish more people could be humble sometimes. Life would be less annoying.

So how bout this weather eh? We get a super snow blast today and then in two days, we'll get slusheroonie. OH peanuts! Speaking of weird weather though, Paul and I finally watched THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH by Mr. Former Vice President Al Gore (aka Mr. Fantastic). Although Al Gore's charisma has not really gotten any better with age, he was wonderfully well spoken and almost...yes I think I will call him....a pleasant breath of fresh air. He really comes off as being the type of guy that should seriously be running this country ...... seriously, we are at total loss because of some idiot counters in Florida......thank you Jeb Bush...... Anyway, he's actually inspired me to go green. I mean, not that I wasn't 'green' before but now I actually feel like I can do something about it. Over the years it seems like people tell you and tell you and tell you that things are bad. They're BAD jack - THEY ARE BAD! But no one's really said "dude, did you know that you don't have to be a crazy energy freak - in fact, you really don't have to do much at all, just save this or this." Yeah ok, so I may have missed the green train a few times when it pulled into the station but to me, it's like someone telling you that you can feel so much better about life if you just eat better. I didn't really care about it at first but then when Paul and I switched our diet to fresh veggies, grilled or baked meat, and new and exciting fruit ---- I can really notice a difference in my attitude and overall happiness.

It's craZY!!!!!!
