This New Years, I think I'll just sit at home and twiddle my thumbs...

Well, I'm back from my 4 day torture with my parents and greater family family vacation, and I'm also back at work. For today. I had quite the interesting Christmas last week: celebrating 5 days early, having a brief encounter with the law (what says happy holidays like a citation from a police officer on christmas eve morning?), working the full 3 days at work when I only planned for 2, spending a mind-numbing 7 hours in the car with my parents - each way - down to florida and back, and getting shnockered on Christmas night. And I do mean shnockered. All in all I'd say it was a "meh" Christmas. Don't get me wrong, there were some really fun parts! Like going to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie (I could look at Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr for days without getting sick of it ::swoon::), spending time with my cousins (we're almost all of age now!), getting presents, eating amazing food and drinking some of Uncle Johns Medicine. But there were some really shitty parts too. Like the citation I mentioned earlier, the lack of sleep over the entire break (we had a zoo at our house on Christmas, literally), the rain in Florida and having to work yesterday and today.

So today's blog is going to be a tribute of some of my favorite Christmas videos. Tis the season right?
First, I gotta give a shout to Sophia. She posted this video on her blog and it cracked me up, so thank you! I don't know about you guys but 24 was probably one of my favorite shows for the first 4 or 5 seasons. Jack Bauer is so bad-ass. And I will always hate Nina Myers with every fiber of my being. When I see her in other movies and shows now I just can't get past that raging bitch of a character and I just want to wipe that little smirk right off her face and shake her until her brain bleeds. ok whoa, I need to calm it down a little there. She's just such a raging bitch and so manipulative! I got REALLY in to Season 1 of 24 if you can't tell. And if you haven't watched it, I highly suggest you ask for it for Christmas (which is only 2 days away!!!) and watch it from start to finish in one weekend. Totally worth it. Anyway, here's the first Christmas video that I'll share with you all. Enjoy!

A String of Random Thoughts...

-So the Office Christmas party was not-that-bad-but-thank-god-for-alcohol-and-i-got-to-take-home-a-poinsetta-plant-so-i-guess-it-was-ok. It wasn't the epic embarrassment that I thought it might be. I did have to sing but I wasn't the only one who got up there so I felt ok about it.

-If there was a female version of Barney Stinson, I think I'd like to be her. Why, you ask? What's so great about Barney Stinson? Well, my friends if you have to ask that question, you clearly haven't met Barney.

Pre-lude to the Office Christmas Party

Ok, gotta make this short and sweet because my office christmas party is in t minus 2 hours and I still have loads of work to do. I can't decide how I feel about this year's office christmas party. Granted, it hasn't occurred yet so i'm sure I'll have some opinion of it by 6:00 tonight but let me just enlighten you on how the office christmas party has run in the past and why I'm a little frustrated about this afternoon. So back in 2007, when the economy was just headed for the shitter and not actually IN the shitter, I had been at my job for about 7 months when Christmas time came around. I was still getting to know everyone in the office and, while I was younger than everyone by about 15 years, I still felt like an adult and that I'd be able to relate to my co-workers on some level. After all, I had a boyfriend of a year and 3 months, I felt mature, I'd finished college and done an internship. I was a professional! A 20-something professional! Doing what I had gone to school for (which is more than I can say for a lot of my friends - not hating, just stating fact). So my boss Dan (from Back from My Business Trip fame) and his wife Dora (i know, so cute isn't it? Dan and Dora! don't you just want to eat them up?) Hosted an office Christmas party at their house. which is in a country club.

Attack of the Christmas Sweaters!!!!!

It's Friday in December so you know what that means: There's a Tacky Christmas Sweater party in every apartment complex in Buckhead and on every other street corner. And I, for one, am so excited! Tacky Christmas sweater parties are always fun. Last year I went to a friend's party and actually won 2nd place for the tackiest outfit. I wore one of my mother's (bless her heart) favorite red sweaters that has 3-d embroidered wreaths all over it, paired it with a black skirt, some knee high socks with bells on the top, my high black boots which I wrapped red and green tinsel around, and some snowflake ornaments for earrings. I also had my mom's Santa pin in the middle of her 3-d wreath sweater, a big red bow in my hair and finally a GIANT puffy red bow on my ass. I mean this thing was probably 18-20 inches wide. Found it at Wal-mart and I'm pretty sure it's supposed to go on your front door, but I decided to get creative and put it on my back door - HEY-OOHH!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Everywhere you go! And unfortunately I have no time to really enjoy it :( Bah Humbug! I have the busiest 2 weeks ahead of me and I have no clue when I'm going to find time to do my Christmas shopping. Yeah, I probably should have gotten most of that done on Black Friday (aka my favorite non-holiday day of the year), but I had 2 problems on that day: 1) I didn't have Christmas lists from anyone in my family except my brother and 2) I was selfishly shopping only for myself. So I guess the second one wasn't really a problem, more of just a fact. But when you don't have shopping lists for other people in your life, who else are you going to shop for on Black Friday except yourself?

Tim Tebow cries...again

What a weekend! I feel like I say this a lot but last weekend was one of the best weekends ever! And I have to say I was somewhat surprised at how great it was. I was expecting this weekend to be mediocre at best - I mean after all, Florida and their golden boy were playing for the SEC championship, it was the first weekend without Georgia football on TV in while, and I had to move on Sunday so I wasn't expecting to have anything to write about. But boy was I pleasantly surprised at the turn-out of this weekend. I'll give you the short version. Florida lost (which is always a good thing), Tim Tebow CRIED like a little baby on national television!!! I got to spend some quality time with Jabes who's back from Spain, and (to put it mildly), I'm out of my rut! I won't go into detail about the last one there but let's just say that I got a little self-esteem boost this weekend. ;)

SEC Championship Drinking Game!

Happy Friday everyone!

God am I glad it's Friday. Even though I was out of the office for 1 and a half days this week, my work week still felt exhaustingly long...I'm so glad it's the weekend. Now as you probably know I am a bulldog fan through and through. Despite the lack-luster season we had this year I will always support my dawgs and I have to say that I'm really sad that I won't be cheering for my team this weekend for the SEC championship. Instead I have to watch 2 of my least favorite teams in the SEC go head to head this weekend and I honestly don't want to cheer for either side. However, I will watch the game because 1) I love the SEC, 2) I'm interested to see the outcome.

Back from my business trip...

So Tuesday afternoon I had the pleasure of heading north for a day and a half to meet with one of my clients for a 2010 Business Plan meeting. I know what you're thinking: "Oooo, what fun! You get to travel for your job! You must be so special and high-up in authority there - and to think you're only a 20-something! wow!!" But you'd be wrong. Normally I take a trip up north about once every 2-3 months for work, put in some face time with the client and my boss and I always find myself completely and utterly exhausted by the time I get home. I dont know what it is about these trips, whether its flying in a shoe-box, bearing the cold weather, or not getting enough sleep in my comfy hilton-garden-inn king size bed (oh yeah they put us up pretty well), but I always come back from this trip completely drained and feeling like I've been run over by a train 4 times.

B McBlogger would like to add you as a friend!

Happy Monday everyone!

Of course if we're really being honest with ourselves this is not a happy Monday. It's kind of yucky outside and most of us have just come off a 4 day bender weekend and the last place we want to be is stuck in our respective cubicles/offices/mundane jobs. But have no fear because B McBlogger is here to brighten your day with a little post!

Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun!

Watch out folks, you're getting a double dose of me today because I'm simply THAT busy at work. I just thought I would share with my loyal readers another fabulous surprise activity I got to partake in about 4 hours ago to make this week even better than it already was going to be! At 11:45 this morning one of my bosses called me into her office and asked me to grab one of my co-workers. She didn't say what it was in reference to so I kind of started sweating profusely. I get really nervous when I don't have any idea what to be prepared for when I have to meet with my boss. It makes my neck hurt and my forehead sweat, among other things. So I grabbed my co-worker and told her that the boss wanted to see us. I walk in to see 3 other co-workers standing there in her office. ok, now I'm really starting to sweat. What did I do wrong that my boss felt the need to call everyone in to her office to scold me about? Shit. This cannot be good.

Give me turkey or give me death!

Ok, before I get in to this post, I did watch about 15 more minutes of the AMAs and Eminem and 50 cent performed - only you couldnt really hear the music because every other second of that performance was beeped out due to all the cursing, which You Cant Do That On Television! or on ABC for that matter. Eminem wore the same thing he wears in every performance, a hoodie with a leather jacket over it and pants that are about to fall down to his ankles at any moment. After that I couldn't stay awake anymore and went to bed.

On to today's post!

Live blog from the AMAs

Hello Hello,

I've decided I'm going to live-blog about the Aerican Music Awards because since I've been watching for the last 10 minutes I have to comment on the train-wreck that IS this awards show. Yes, I missed the first hour because I was enjoying Bruno but better late than never. I'm going to leave this completely un-edited so I hope it makes sense and please dont judge the typos and grammatical errors. I'm too exhausted to care.  here we go:

- Kate Hudson, put some clothes on. omg your boob is about to pop out - I can't concentrate on anything else you're saying because your about to show some serious nipple. Seriously IDK who you're introducing but you keep pulling at your sequined dress and it's about to show some major boob.

Good luck movin up cuz IIIIII-IIIII'MMM movin out!

I am so excited. My roommates PCBH and Lily and I are about to to move out of suburbia and back ITP!! We've been living in my friend's place for the last couple of months while she's been fraternizing with beautiful Europeans, away on important business, but she's about to return to the states so we gotta pack it up & move it out. That's right kids, we're about to move back to the Milledge Ave Retirement Community - for all you non-UGA fans, that's code for Buckhead. Milledge Ave is where all of Greek life lives at UGA. And I swear to you the majority of the greek community that doesn't stay for grad school or move out of state, graduates and retires to Buckhead, where we act like we're still in college. I'd say the only difference is that now we have degrees, jobs and this thing called "responsibility" whatever the hell THAT is.

New Moon!!!!

Hey kids,

So yes, I have fallen victim to the Twilight saga - just like every tween girl in America. What can I say, there is something about those books that I simply cannot resist. And the New Moon movie comes out in 4 days! Needless to say I'm a LITTLE excited! I listened to the entire audio book last week during work and I am ridiculously ready for this movie. I know a lot of people were disappointed with the Twilight movie last year because it simply didn't live up to the book - and I can totally agree with that, but lets be honest, what movie EVER lives up to the book? That's what I thought.  I actually watched some behind-the-scenes stuff from the DVD and I have to say, the director - what a nut-job! and she was really weird looking. But that's neither here nor there. Oh and the whole spider monkey thing? what was that? But now, we have a new director for New Moon, Chris Weitz. And he has apparently done great things with this movie. I have a really good feeling about him. The previews alone make me think that this movie is going to be better than Twilight was. Like seriously, I can't wait.

Another one bites the dust

So, it's 8:30am and I just found out TWO more of my friends just got engaged. In my life, I have been to a total of 16 weddings. And 9 of those have been in the last 2 years. Now I know I'm just a couple of years out of college and we have the first "wave" of weddings right after everyone graduates but seriously?? NINE in TWO years?? Thank God I haven't been IN any of them yet - no 27 dresses story to tell here - but just attending nine in the span of 2 years is absolutely crazy. The other 7 weddings have been sprinkled out over the years - some were "family friends" meaning I didn't really know the bride & groom but my parents did. Some were friends I grew up with that tied the knot during college and I think I went to one or two of my babysitters weddings. Out of the nine I've been to in the last 2 years 6 were some of my closest friends from high school & college, 2 of them I was "lucky" enough to be someone's date, and 1 was a family friend. And oh how I wish it ended there. But no, I've already got at least 3 weddings lined up for next year and who knows how many guys will pop the question to the loves of their life over the holidays. Makes my neck hurt.

So random but so funny

I don't know about you but I definitely am having a case of the Mondays. If you're like me and need a little pick-me-up, please enjoy this video. I dont know why but this really hits my funny bone. I was just busting out laughing in my office and got some very funny looks from my co-workers. AND since I'm not supposed to be watching Youtube at my office, I couldn't share the glorious humor of this video with them. So I'm sharing it with you. Enjoy!

Isn't this just the way it goes?

So, I finally went to the grocery store on Saturday after 2 weeks of eating whatever my roommates have brought home. Yes, I've been somewhat of a mooch recently - not on purpose, I'm just lazy and we don't have an extremely convenient grocery store near our house.

Anyway, I finally sucked it up on Saturday and went to Kroger - I got some great breakfast foods, replenished many of the foods I'd eaten of my roommates and thought to myself - ok, the holidays are coming up, let's start eating right now so that I can afford to splurge on all the thanksgiving and christmas goodies by the end of the month. So I was really good this morning. I had one of my SmartOnes breakfast quesadillas and I had every intention of bringing a banana to work (and I just realized I forgot it - BLERG!) and eating a frozen dinner during lunch. This is to get back to eating healthier AND to stop spending so much on eating out.

My other favorite thing about Thursdays...

I failed to mention my other love of Thursday's last night - but I mean, isn't it obvious? Always Sunny of course! I about peed my  pants last night during the opening scene of Always Sunny last night - Kitten Mittens - GENIOUS! If you didn't get a chance to see it, you can check it out HERE. Anyway, I could not stop laughing when I watched this. And maybe you're thinking "oh well she must be a cat person so that's why she thinks it's so funny". Au contraire my friend! I am definitely NOT a cat person. However, my roommate Princess Consuela Banana Hammock - I call her PCBH for short - IS a cat person.

Live from Atlanta, it's Thursday night!

Who remembers when Thursday night was like THE best TV night of the week? This probably came about right around middle school for me - I was out of the TGIF mode (way too cool for school - I mean OMG, Hell-ooo, I'm like 12 years old, so mature and I don't have time for Family Matters, Step by Step, Full House and Boy Meets World, that stuff's for kids What-EVER). I had moved on to more adult-themed television - now get your head out of the gutter - not ADULT in that sense, but adult in the sense of I'm-really-not-old-enough-to-watch-this-and-understand-it-but-my-brother-and-his-high-school-friends-watch-this-so-I-want-to kind of adult TV. I'm talking about NBC's Must See TV on Thursday nights. You guys remember what I'm talking about - Friends, Seinfeld, Frasier, Cheers, Will & Grace, and of course, the never ending drama ER. Those were some good years in NBC's life (and mine for that matter). Now, I rarely understood the adult humor - in fact my dad wouldn't let me watch Friends for fear that I would have premarital sex before the age of 14, because according to him that's what Friends was promotiong.

"Women may fake orgasms sometimes...

But men can fake whole relationships"

(disclaimer, the post below is in no way a shot at any of my ex's - it's simply a trend I've noticed with several of my friends over the last several months and I thought it was blog-worthy and hopefully a little funny - please don't take offense)

Hi-de-ho neighbors. How's THAT quote for a wake-up-call on this beautiful hump day. Yes, my first human interaction this morning was one of my friends calling me and telling me that her MOTHER shared this quote with her. Apparently it's from some play that she saw recently and she thought "ya know what, I'm going to share this with my daughter" because that's not at all awkward. at all.

My First Blog Entry!

Hello hello kids,

This is my first blog entry - not exactly my first blog though, just the first entry of my new blog. I used to blog when I started WW back in 2008 in order to track my progress and keep myself accountable in my attempt to lose about 30 lbs, which I did quite well, if I do say so myself. (gloat gloat) - anyway, I guess you could say I've been inspired to start blogging again for a few reasons:
