It's raining, it's pouring... okay maybe just misting

Currently listening to: Steady As She Goes - The Raconteurs

Man - gloomy day. Rained practically all day today. Although I don't mind the rain too much, it just becomes an inconvenience when commuting.

Didn't do much for my b-day/Halloween except eat lots of candy. My dog, however, dressed up:

He doesn't look too happy in these pictures I know - but isn'the cute as a chicken? Don't worry - he received many treats for the torturous 5 minutes in costume.

Sunday at Starbucks

Currently listening to: Whatever is playing on Starbuck's soundtrack...

Here at Starbuck's on a Sunday getting work done. Damn VPN isn't working from home again... oh well - used my gift card to try the new Maple Macchiatto - not too bad. Secretly - no, okay PUBLICY - I really prefer Peet's coffee because, well, it tastes better to me. But, Starbucks is a little easier where I live to set-up work camp... so be it.

We were discussing this yesterday - between friends. Why Starbucks? Many agree the coffee isn't spectacular. However, at the end we came to the agreement that no matter what Starbuck's you go to - you always know what you're going to get. True dat!

Oh - watched Flavor of Love 2 last week... he picked Deelishious... AND Jefferey won Project Runway - wow!

Another Wedding Saturday

Currently listening to: John Mayer - Dreaming With a Broken Heart

Ahhh... the weekend is finally here. Today - another wedding to go to. This time, in the beautiful city of San Francisco. This is going to be a big one, I hear 400 guests...yikes!

Splurged on a pair of shoes yesterday- thinking of breaking them in at the wedding today. They are a spike-heeled BCBG number... ALMOST went for this pair of boots with fur trim, but definately need a second opinion on that one. Don't want to look like I should be fishing in Alaska or something :)

Two of my time-wasters merge!

Currently listening to: KT Tunstall - Heal Over

Yep - my current internet vices have become one: Google has bought YouTube.

Now with all the copyright stuff going into place, I wonder if we'll get to see clips from our favorite TV shows, movies, etc. without paying? Hmmm...

On another note, we can all breathe a sigh of relief because Paris and Nicole are friends again...ick.

Guilty Pleasures....

Currently listening to: Al Green - Love and Happiness

Yep - we all have them... Maybe my Yumi Yogurt craving, maybe my Kelly Clarkson CD... but my guiltiest pleasure of all as of late is Flavor of Love 2 . That's right, the sequel to the first season of Flavor of Love. You're watching it, and you say in your mind "this is terrible" and yet you keep flipping back in between commercials to see what happens next.

I did learn from the show that Flavor Flav has 6 children....yikes....

Sheryl Crow & John Mayer rock!

Currently listening to: John Mayer - In Repair

Went to the Sheryl Crow & John Mayer concert last night in Mountain View...paying for lack of sleep today.

We had 8th row seats right smack in the middle. I have never had seats so close before at a concert - and for the price it was all worth it! (BTW, with these type seats you see the older women who dress in clubbing clothes hoping they get John Mayer's attention and teenyboppers doing the same...people watching in this section was very interesting to say the least)

Sheryl Crow did great to start things off and got the crowd pumped up. We stood on our feet for practically all of John Mayer's set. That boy can play guitar like a badass... no really!!! Serious.

Here's some pics I caught without trying to be caught taking them...

Ahhh...2nd wedding of the year

Currently listening to: Justin Timberlake - SexyBack

Just went to the 2nd wedding of the year today at the beautiful Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside, CA. Very sweet couple. It was a chilly night and the wedding and reception were outdoors, but we managed with some heaters they put out. Later we all went indoors for dancing an dessert.

Ever play Karaoke Revolution on PlayStation? Well it is the funnest game ever (once you get over your shyness)... I know alot of people have it out there, they just don't want to admit it.

Fall is sneaking in....

Currently listening to: Beyonce - Ring the Alarm

Do you know how I can tell? Gotta' close the windows at night, it's too chilly. Took my dog Tank to the dog park and I needed a sweater... ah yes, it will be here before we know it. But that means cute boots and fuzzy sweaters to wear, yay!

So last night, totally random, decided to try out this place in downtown San Mateo - Jeffrey's Hamburgers. It's a 50's style joint much like Mel's... but this burger was GOOD. Had garlic fries as a side (they put lots of fresh garlic on top - which I don't mind because I LOVE garlic), but the BEST was the chocolate shake... mmm mmmm mmmm.... I am getting hungry again just thinking about it.

It's Monday - enough said

Currently listenting to: Augustana - Boston

For those peeps in the working world... does anyone really like Mondays? "Sounds like a case of the Mondays to me..."

Had some Yumi Yogurt for lunch - it's da' bomb! (Brazilian Chocolate & Vanilla Kiss). Yeah I know, not too nutritious and in an hour, I will be starving for dinner... but it's oh so worth it. BTW - how do some people order anything bigger than a small? They are HUGE... and I see some people eating the quart-size on the way out the door....

Football Sundays = Lazy Sunday Naps

Currently listening to: KT Tunstall - Under the Weather

Yep - you got me. I am not one of those people keeping up with fantasy stats nor am I a hardcore fan of any team. Watching football actually oozes me into a light slumber for half hour increments throughout the day. And I don't know if it's just knowing that Sunday is here, but I also tend to sleep in. Well I finally got my lazy ass up to take a shower and get dressed for the day.... so what if it's 3 in the afternoon?

I typed in John Mayer on yesterday as I am going to his concert next week (wanted to see if anyone had clips of him and Sheryl Crow as of recent). What I came across were some pretty funny clips... but check out this one with JM and Kanye West:

Oh where did the weekend already go?

Currently listening to: Mat Kearney - Nothing Left to Lose

Dragged out of bed this morning at 8:15... It's now 4:22pm and I this is my first chance to sit down. Oh where oh where does the day go when you have errands to run???

Funny video clip sent to me yesterday:

The beginning

Currently listening to: Joshua Radin - These Photographs

My first post... ahhhh. I have been sucked into the blogging world, but the question is, will I keep up?

Just got through with a sh*tload of homework for my Chinese class since I have been on vacation the last 3 weeks (in China no less!). Needless to say, I've got ALOT to catch up on. Here's just one page of the writing part due


there are 8 pages total....

Obviously I have procrastinated.

Tomorrow is Friday, yay! Still somehow, our weekend schedule is suddenly packed with things to do.

I know I shouldn't be staying up this late, but sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day... *sigh*
