Holy Skittles! Meg Got Fired!

So this afternoon I was twittering around and I noticed this Tweet from my favorite blogger:
"to clarify: no i'm not joking; i think they're going to sue me for defamation, i guess? and i love you guys too!"

So naturally, I had to click on 2b1b's twitter page and see what was up...and turns out Meggles got FIRED!!! for BLOGGING!!! Holy Seanvote!!!! People can actually get FIRED for BLOGGING??? I mean whoa. That is intense. Makes me a wee-bit nervous about what I write in here now. Granted, I know I haven't been graced with "Boss#1's presence" nor have I ever had the luxury of the most awkward stories in the world, but I have alluded to my boss on occasion.

Bear Hugs: Not All They're Cracked Up To Be

(Editor's note: this may or may not offend cat lovers - don't take it personally please. Second Editor's note: yes I changed my blog template - the pink was becoming nauseating, as I'm sure some of you can agree to)

So last night had all the ingredients to make it a great night. I was planning to work out while Andy went to a networking event, then shower and go over to his place for a movie night. There are LOTS of great movies that Andy hasn't seen - and me being a movie buff thought it only appropriate that I share some of my faves with him. So 8:45 rolls around and I head over to his place - and we had talked about getting a late dinner since we were both preoccupied earlier that evening. So we go and grab some yummy mexican from El Torrero (delish!) and head back to his place. The nachos were to die for and I was quite content during dinner.

"Error PC Load Letter"? What the F*uck Does That Mean?

I hate our color printer. With every fiber of my being. First of all, this is should not take 5 whole minutes for the printer to "Warm Up". Especially when it was being used less than 5 minutes earlier. Or if I'm printing 3 different PDF documents but I hit the print button within 10 seconds of the last time. Yet I have to sit. and wait. and wait some more. ugh! I feel like I'm stuck in Office Space.

Wild Bills Recap - A Little Disappointing, Eric Church Recap - Legendary!

Well, I'm sad to say that Saturday night was not the red-neck, buck-toothed experience I thought it was going to be. I was expecting full-on cut-off flanel shirts, paired with gianormous belt buckles, cowboy hats and boots, but I really didn't see that much of that attire there. There were no coyote-ugly bartenders, no mechanical bull (or at least it was out of my line of sight), no line-dancing even! I did see some Woo Girls though, and I, myself became a Woo Girl, so I had that going for me. But all in all, my drinking game didn't play out quite as well as I thought it would have. But the concert was, in a word, AMAZING. There was lots of Jager, TONS of people, and Eric played my song, and we danced and sang and all was right with the world. I got a little, shall we say, schwasty-faced on Saturday, thanks to my very non-coyote-esque (read: she-male) bartender and my good friend Jager:

Drinking Game Saturday - early edition

So as you all know, I'm pretty pumped about the Eric Church concert tomorrow night. And as a result, I've put together a little Drinking Game for Saturday, but I'm posting it today because I know I will not feel like blogging tomorrow. One thing that I'm apparently going to discover on Saturday night, is just how red-neck this place called Wild Bill's is. I've heard stories. And I've been to Cowboy's in Kennesaw, as well as Blindhorse in Greenville - so I think I'm pretty well acquainted with Country Bars and the type of people that frequent them. You've got your under-agers who think they're getting away with passing for 21, but you can tell they're probably only 18 based on the way they're dressed/lack of clothing. There's always a mechanical bull. A huge dance floor that's filled with line-dancing. Sometimes these bars turn into Coyote Ugly for a song or two, just to get the crowd (read: guys in hopes of getting laid) riled up. All in all, I just know it's going to be a classy place. So I'm just going to take a gander about they types of things and people I'll see when I grace Wild Bill's with my presence. So, without further adieu, I give you:

The Eric Church Wild Bill's Drinking Game!

Love of my life - music edition

In 2 days I'll be seeing the most recent love of my music life on stage! I. Cannot. Wait! Eric Church and I are new lovers - it was only last September that we met. (disclaimer, i am a 90s teeny-bopper at heart and Brian Littrell will always be the #1 love of my music life - Eric doesn't quite compare, but for this chapter of my life - and for the subject of this post, he's pure gold) He came to see me at my old college town, Athens, Georgia. It was love at first chord. Now before the night that the actual in-person magic happened, we had started to become acquainted with one another a few weeks prior to our face-to-face. I would ask him questions about where my life was headed, why I was feeling miserable there for a little while, and how did he feel about me. And yes, he answered me in song. It was like he knew exactly the words to say and how to say them.

That area on my head behind my ears really hurts right now. And for that matter, so does my whole head. And my legs, arms, shoulders, ass and feet. Partially because of working out (effing WOMPs), partially because of dancing in high-heeled boots last night, and partially because I am utterly wiped out. For some reason I agreed to go with Andy to Star Bar last night at 11:30pm! Probably not the smartest thing to do when I have to work in the morning. But hey, it was Mardi Gras last night - that's a viable excuse to go out on a Tuesday, right? Right. Except I forgot it was Mardi Gras until I saw a bunch of people with beads on in the bar.

Did you know that 1 in 3 women suffer from LBL? No I didn't, nor do I care

Disclaimer: the subject of this blog entry is not necessarily something you want to read before lunchtime.

LBL - what the hell is LBL you ask? Well according to it's something that 1 in 3 women suffer from! Head em up, move em out Herpes and HPV, there's a new serious issue that's affecting women these days and it's called LBL (Light Bladder Leakage), and boy has it been a serious problem for women for ages now! According to the website videos, women like Cleopatra, the Mona Lisa, and even EVE (of Old Testament fame, not the R&B artist) have suffered from this horrible problem over the years. Specifically, LBL is just what you think it is - when a women (1 out of 3, mind you), has issues controlling her bladder for a moment.

Atlanta's second annual snowstorm 2K10!

So last night I ran into an old buddy from high school and we got to the whole "what are you up to these days" conversation. I gave him the skinny on my awesome job and that I work in Johns Creek/Duluth area. Now, unless you've been living under a rock this week, you are probably well aware that the entire Atlantic Coast (apart from Georgia and Florida) has had record-breaking snow-falls. My favorite blogger from DC has been talking about it and I've got several friends who have told me that they haven't been at work all week because of the snow. Hell, PCBH's family has had something like 30 inches! and they're in Boone! So last night Johnny Football Star tells me that I better be careful since I work all the way in Johns Creek, I might not be able to get home after about 1:00 today. What? Seriously, I heard Atlanta's only getting 1 inch of snow, maybe, I should be fine! But JFS tells me that we might get as much as FOUR inches. Ho-Ly-Shit. I'm terrified that I'm going to be snowed in at my office all weekend. How much would that suck!

Love/Hate Relationship with my Life Right Now

Overall I'd say that the last few days have been pretty great. Filled with fun, work hasn't been stressing me out too much and I drank like a fish this weekend without feeling too much of the wrath of a hangover on Saturday or Sunday. But on my drive to work this morning I felt a little bi-polar (that's not really the word I'm going with but just go with it) because I was generally not too thrilled about waking up this morning but then I had a few things go just right during my morning commute so it got me to thinking about what I'm loving right now and what I'm hating. So, here goes:

boy do i need a drink

Just a fair warning, this is going to be a complaint-filled entry. If you don't want to hear my complain, I suggest you stop reading and get back to work. Athankyouverymuch.

Blokay - so you wanna keep reading? Here it is, don't say I didn't warn you:

So it's friday afternoon. At 3:17pm. I am hungover. And tired. And cranky. And sore from working out. And did I mention I'm hungover? Yep I partied a little too hard on Thirsty Thursday and I am paying for it dearly today at work. Woke up at 8:15 when I'm supposed to leave my apartment by 8:00 to get to work on time. So that's special. Needless to say there was no time for showering this morning. Just enough time to brush my teeth and wash my face and run a comb through my hair. Just barely.

My Happy Place...

This has been a fabulous morning, a fabulous lunch and I can only imagine it will be followed by a fabulous afternoon. I don't think anything can bring me down!

Let me enlighten you as to why I'm in such a cheery mood compared to last Thursday. I have been working at my job for almost 3 years. And for almost 3 years I've had to suffer through just mediocre breakfast options on my way to work. Sure Panera is not bad, we have an IHOP across the street (which I have yet to visit) and there are even a few chick-fil-a's peppered up my 18 mile commute to the Johns Creek area, but nothing has quite satisfied my pallate over my almost 3 year reign at this company. But yesterday I stumbled upon an amazing discovery via google maps.

apparently i suffer from rage blackouts

I was a little bit hyped up last week. I'm sorry. All was not sunny in my world and I took it out on you guys through my blog and I shouldn't have reacted that way. I apologize if you didn't find any light-hearted banter in my dark and uncomfortable post last week. I was a little upset but I've since treated myself to alcohol on Friday, followed by a hangover remedy on Saturday and a 90 minute run outside on Sunday (in keeping up w/ my half marathon training).
