Things have been crazy busy lately. Work stuff, traveling for work, and lots of excellent personal stuff happening.

The biggest thing is that I've been searching for a new place to live come this summer, and as of today, unless something majorly drastic happens, my offer on a two-story townhouse was accepted! I signed the paperwork and gave the first $2000 up for the deposit. I'm so excited. It was the place I wanted, and I knew it was the right place as soon as I saw it. It's got an ideal upstairs with the perfect spot for my computer desk (for Chris the HP) and writing stuff. I'm really happy. And again, unless something weird happens in escrow, the place is mine. Plus, it's a bit closer to work and in a great neighborhood/complex. Plus, the offer the seller accepted was way lower than we thought they'd take, plus they're kicking back a bit of the closing cost! I'm feeling oddly accomplished with my first home buying...and I'm feeling like a grown-up. Heh. My family has been so awesome with the help, and they're just as excited. Same goes for my co-workers and good friends, who have been so excited for me and have been just as anxious as I have for any news on the offers and the places I'd found. I'm grateful for a lot of the people in my life.

So yeah, the next two months are going to be very busy as the escrow process occurs and I hope and pray nothing goes south. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for days, methinks. I am happy, but cautious.

Random things: Glee rocks. Just...it's awesome. I'm just in love with it. Meep.

And Sunday night's Academy of Country Music awards? Freakin' awesome. Let's put it this way, Song and Single of the Year and Top Vocal Group? The right winner won and I may have cried for said winner. Same goes for Record of the Year and Female Vocalist. Totally deserved. A bit bitter about Male Vocalist and Entertainer, but I digress on that. Moreso bitter about Entertainer of the Year. Seriously?! Coughcough. Also, Top New Artist was deserved too...the artist makes me smile a lot. Heh.

So yeah, busy busy times. I love it. =)

Happy!

Sitting in my living room with Aaron the Acer and I finally found a wireless connection! Woohoo! Am continuing on my SportsNight Renaissance and am watching "The Quality of Mercy at 29K". One of my favorite, favorite eps, and now that I work for a company that sponsors several of the world's best climbers, it means a lot more. I am fairly sure this ep is based off of Ed Viesturs and Peter and Jim Whittaker. So wonderful. Lovelovelove it! Yay for Everest climbs!!

Am on a hunt for a new desktop computer. Leo is finally starting to die out, I'm afraid. The mom and I scoped out Best Buy and I think I found a good deal, but I'm going to shop a bit more before I go ahead and buy the sucker. Sad thing is that I am already thinking of names for it. Haha. I'm so lame.

Am also thinking about a new car. Sam the Saturn is six years old, and while he only has 48000 miles on it, I'd so like to have something cute and sporty. I keep saying that if I could find a Saturn Sky for a decent price and payment, I'd take it in a heartbeat. We shall see what happens before Saturn goes obselete. Heh.

Totally being obsessive with taking echinacea and using hand sanitizer with this whole H1N1 thing. Eep. Lord knows I don't need to get sick, but I feel so sorry for those who have had it or are getting it. Yikes. I think, however, my allergies are raging again, which sucks.

The novel writing muse is attempting to play tonight--something I am rather grateful for. I keep coming up with bits and pieces in my head and yet I can't seem to put them together. Sigh. This will happen, dang it. Grr.

Bed soon. Work at 8 am.

Good night!

Um. Eep. I apparently haven't updated in six weeks. Color me a slacker. I have no real excuse except for work has been crazy and I've just been distracted by other things lately.

Yeah. Work is good. I love that place, I really do. Business is good, and we're really gearing up for holiday. I've been with EB for almost 10 months now and it feels like home. The 'place I used to work' didn't feel like home for a good year. Now? I'm so--happy. Even when I have to go in and work on my day off, I know I can complain to my boss a bit and get a chuckle out of her, and then I can get over it and get my butt on the sales floor and run the business! Love it and my work peoples.

New music rules my life. I've really been stuck on Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" and Michael Buble's "Crazy Love" the past couple of weeks, and I am beyond excited for John Mayer's "Battle Studies" next month. Finally a new Mayer album! YAY! Also psyched for the Glee soundtrack. January 26th, 2010 is Lady A's sophomore record, "Need You Now". Woohoo! Now if I could just get a new Josh Kelley album and Josh Groban ("Who is Josh Groban!?! Kill yourself!") album, all would be good.

TV rocks this season. Glee rules my life at the moment. I am nothing if not a Gleek. The Big Bang Theory owns me, as I adore Sheldon. Jim Parsons is the most adorable thing. NCIS and CSI: NY are awesome again this season, and my CSI: Miami is so back to the show I adore. Loving this season to pieces (how can I not love my red-haired boyfriend!?). Also loving Grey's Anatomy again this season. And as wrong as it may be, I just cannot get into NCIS: LA, regardless of how hot LL Cool J is. Maybe I'll watch it after the season ends and see. It's just not my thing at the moment, I suppose. It's nothing without my Tony. Heh.

Writing is still going strong for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. I'm up about 10,000 words on the year, so this is of the good. I have dug back in to the novel a bit more lately, as the muse may possibly be creeping back there. If I could keep the muse on that subject, I would be a happy camper!

The parents got me a Wii for my birthday a week or so ago, and I've been having way too much fun with that thing. Addicted to the bowling, baseball, and tennis. Bought MLB 2K9 for it the other day, since my Timmy is the cover boy. have been fussing with the Wii Fit thing the last few days too. I love the hula hoop!

Yeah. Rambling now. Off to write...or something. =)

I need a crying icon. All I have to say about tonight's TV finales is this:
oy with the poodles already! tv makes me weep! spoilers inside. )

I am beyond upset this evening. Oy. I didn't even bother trying to flip to Supernatural too. I made the mom DVR it for me. I couldn't handle three times the angst. Even if Misha Collins is pretty to look at. And those other two as well. ;)

On the upside? John Mayer referenced my workplace yesterday on Twitter and made me laugh hysterically. I so love him.

Also on the upside, I discovered that Chris Pine was in a S2 ep of CSI: Miami. Heh. He's awesome dealing with my red-haired boyfriend (who totally wins that face-off, BTW). It's the crooked mouth that I adore. Or the blue eyes. Either way, he's hot. And Zach Quinto is on a S2 ep of CSI: Vegas. Basically looks the same as he always does. Hee. I was amused. This is what happens when I go watching old seasons on DVD on my day off. Very randomly did I even realize who was on the screen. I blame the pretty. That is all I have to say about that.

Sigh. Off to recover my brain from television. How sad is that!?

Good night.

Weepy!

Well, bullet point post, if you will. With expanded notes. Ha.

*Loving Twitter. Totally made a reply to Barry Zito tonight. Um. Love. Am over there as heartisopen if anyone wants to add me! But the Twitter thing is kind of amusing!

*Loving baseball this season. My boys came from behind in the 9th to win tonight. Little Panda hit a 3-run homer to win it. I do heart the Pablo. We're only 3 games back now. Bite me, Dodgers! (and on that same note, bite me, Casey Blake. Jerk. Don't even mess with my B. Wilson.) And my Timmeh! Wearing pink accented spikes on Mother's Day. Undying devotion. No, really. Loooooove.

*Movies! The parents and I went to see Star Trek on Sunday. Absolutely LOVED it. I never watched the show(s) as a kid, but dear lord, this movie rocked. Plus, Chris Pine is way hot--guh. And the adorable-ness that is Chris and Zachary Quinto in every freakin' interview they do together makes me grin like crazy. In addition: two words--Karl Urban. I love him to little tiny pieces. He is still awesome. Makes me miss the LotR days, though!

*TV! My red-haired boyfriend made me a bit teary on Monday. DC still rocks. CSI: NY will likely make me cry this week if what I think happens happens! NCIS is love, and Tony owns me. Really.

*Music: Completely in love with Luke Bryan's new single "Do I". Co-written by Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, and backup vocal by Hillary Scott (all of Lady Antebellum). Also adoring the new duet from Josh Kelley and Ryan Cabrera: "Tell It Like It Is". And on the Keith Urban front, rumor has it that the possible next single is "'Til Summer Comes Around". I will squeal for DAYS if this ends up being true. Best song on the album, I tell you! So much good music lately--I love new music to add to Timmy the Pod.

*Work. Work is good. I'm really tired, but things are good. DD visit next week and we're brushing up on visuals. I am struggling a bit on the visual standard front, but I think it'll be resolved soon. Otherwise, business is good and I am simply enjoying where I am. I'm so much more at ease--something I probably haven't felt in a year or so.

*Writing. Writing is decent. I've kind of gotten away from the novel in the last few weeks or so, but I am gradually getting back into the groove on that. I am puttering on little baseball snippets still, and trying to write the beginning of the Tony/Hannah relationship. Also the beginning of the DiNozzo family and how Horatio Caine comes into play there. Heh. He is godfather to their son and daughter, after all. *ponders* Am also going through celeb photos, rearranging my cast list for the novel and adding a few photos to go with names. I think I'm actually considering recasting my lead male character (currently cast as Dave Annable from Brothers and Sisters). I probably won't actually go through with it, but I like to have the options!

*Misc. Things: Am looking to switch phone plans. I am most likely going to switch to Sprint in the next couple of weeks. I can get on my dad's plan from his work and save some money on the bill. I just have to pick a new phone and that is a major challenge. I may go for the Blackberry, but we shall see. I get so indecisive. Heh. May pick the Palm Treo or the Instinct. It'll be weird not using AT&T for my cell, that's for sure.

Going to bed soon. Really I am. I might actually sleep in tomorrow morning, since I have the day off. Or I'll be up early, because my brain starts waking up at like, 7 am. Not cool.

Good night.

(and on that same note, bite me, Casey Blake. Jerk. Don't even mess with my B. Wilson.) And my Timmeh! Wearing pink accented spikes on Mother's Day. Undying devotion. No, really. Loooooove.

*Movies! The parents and I went to see Star Trek on Sunday. Absolutely LOVED it. I never watched the show(s) as a kid, but dear lord, this movie rocked. Plus, Chris Pine is way hot--guh. And the adorable-ness that is Chris and Zachary Quinto in every freakin' interview they do together makes me grin like crazy. In addition: two words--Karl Urban. I love him to little tiny pieces. He is still awesome. Makes me miss the LotR days, though!

*TV! My red-haired boyfriend made me a bit teary on Monday. DC still rocks. CSI: NY will likely make me cry this week if what I think happens happens! NCIS is love, and Tony owns me. Really.

*Music: Completely in love with Luke Bryan's new single "Do I". Co-written by Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, and backup vocal by Hillary Scott (all of Lady Antebellum). Also adoring the new duet from Josh Kelley and Ryan Cabrera: "Tell It Like It Is". And on the Keith Urban front, rumor has it that the possible next single is "'Til Summer Comes Around". I will squeal for DAYS if this ends up being true. Best song on the album, I tell you! So much good music lately--I love new music to add to Timmy the Pod.

*Work. Work is good. I'm really tired, but things are good. DD visit next week and we're brushing up on visuals. I am struggling a bit on the visual standard front, but I think it'll be resolved soon. Otherwise, business is good and I am simply enjoying where I am. I'm so much more at ease--something I probably haven't felt in a year or so.

*Writing. Writing is decent. I've kind of gotten away from the novel in the last few weeks or so, but I am gradually getting back into the groove on that. I am puttering on little baseball snippets still, and trying to write the beginning of the Tony/Hannah relationship. Also the beginning of the DiNozzo family and how Horatio Caine comes into play there. Heh. He is godfather to their son and daughter, after all. *ponders* Am also going through celeb photos, rearranging my cast list for the novel and adding a few photos to go with names. I think I'm actually considering recasting my lead male character (currently cast as Dave Annable from Brothers and Sisters). I probably won't actually go through with it, but I like to have the options!

*Misc. Things: Am looking to switch phone plans. I am most likely going to switch to Sprint in the next couple of weeks. I can get on my dad's plan from his work and save some money on the bill. I just have to pick a new phone and that is a major challenge. I may go for the Blackberry, but we shall see. I get so indecisive. Heh. May pick the Palm Treo or the Instinct. It'll be weird not using AT&T for my cell, that's for sure.

Going to bed soon. Really I am. I might actually sleep in tomorrow morning, since I have the day off. Or I'll be up early, because my brain starts waking up at like, 7 am. Not cool.

Good night.

Yay!

For anyone that watches Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, tonight's episode is in Fresno, California. AKA my hometown. It was filmed about two months ago, and the story is absolutely incredible. It was such an honor for this city to be chosen, and it's so exciting to see it unfold on TV tonight.

So if anyone gets a chance to watch tonight's episode, please do! =)

Yay!

First off, the trip to Oregon went well. Still exhausted, but it was fun and it was nice being with one of my dearest friends. We looked at 35 houses for Rach and her family in a span of 12 hours. Go us. Accomplished. We made awesome time driving up to Portland on Friday and back to home on Sunday. We were oddly proud of ourselves. Needless to say, we were sitting for the entire dang weekend. Fun times. Heh.

Second--CSI: Miami made me cry tonight. Oh with the love for the 150th episode of my beloved show. And the red-haired boyfriend was fan-freakin'-tastic tonight. Gah.

The ultimate point of this post is to respond to a meme. [livejournal.com profile] goddess_loki gave me seven interests to explain, so I shall do so. Heh.

bradley whitford: Ahh, my dear Brad Whitford. I fell in love with him on The West Wing, and will watch him on pretty much anything. I want him back on my TV, thankyouverymuch.

cresty: Oh man, my Cresty. One of the original fake!boyfriends. Most who have been here with me for a good amount of time know the undying devotion I have for Ryan Seacrest. And yes, it is still going. I love the man. And here's why. I think he's freakin' brilliant. I truly believe he is one of the true entertainment moguls. I respect him for always knowing who his guests are and what they do. He never fails to research and I love that. My dear Cresty!

hobbits: Hobbitses! I am a huge LotR fan and I love me some hobbits. That, and if I leave my hair curly and due to my vertically challenges self, I tend to look like one. Geez. ;)

joaquin phoenix: I'm a big Joaquin Phoenix fan. Of course, he's a little crazy now, but that's okay. He's amazing in Gladiator, I loved him in Signs and The Village, and he's brilliant in Walk The Line. Love the Wok. (hahaha to those who get that!) I think he really is oddly underrated.

lady antebellum: Lady A! My favorite new country group. I was a fan of Charles Kelley for quite a while already, but when he and Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott got together, it just made it better. This group is going to be huge, and I am a proud, proud fan. I encourage anyone who likes country music to give Lady A a shot, because they're awesome.

song lyrics: I have a thing for song lyrics. I tend to memorize songs very quickly (usually after one time hearing it--sometimes twice), and then I go hunting for the lyrics. I'll print them or scribble them into one of my many notebooks. I love song lyrics and love the stories most of them have.

veggietales Haha. I love the VeggieTales. I have a little stuffed Bob the Tomato and a Larry the Cucumber, and a Junior Asparagus. I also have a talking Larry keychain, and a big plastic Bob and Silly Songs with Larry on CD. I think they're just so cute.

I go to bed now. Hoping to get a very important phone call today. Crossing my fingers!
