Weekend Update

Sigh. I haven’t written in so long. And I apologize. I’ve just been leading a pretty un-interesting life.  Quick highlights.

[1. Still interning]

I’m still working at the magazine publishing company (reading about radiology and dieticians and social workers) and still learning a good bit about copy editing (and learning how much more there is to learn).

[2. Still not making any money]

So…the aforementioned internship is unpaid. Annnnnddddd I wasn’t able to find more than a one-Saturday-a-month catering job. Sooooooo I’ll be making the 2 hr trek home every other week to work for Daddy-o :-\. Kinda stinks that things didn’t work out like I’d hoped.

[3. Watching summer TV]

The Boyfriend and I are lovin the new True Bloods and SYTYCD (which Brent actually admits he likes now). In return, he got me hooked on Entourage (season premiere tomorrow night!).  And watching NCIS and Criminal Minds whenever I can find a repeat.
Also, best new show ever = Bert the Conqueror on Travel Channel. The guy is hilarious.

[4. Watching World Cup]

Like everyone else. Watched today’s game in a bar in downtown WC and it was nuts. Crazy when we scored, sad when we lost. :-\


[5. Dog sitting fun]

Got to dog sit again last night/today! This time Jada got in the pool with us.

jada floating

She has this thing where she thinks it’s so fun to swim up to you, dig in her claws, then use you to push off of you. Not so fun if you’re being pushed off-of.

[6. And upcoming: friends coming for bar hopping fun]

Five amigos from Leb Val are comin up tonight! We’re talkin roof-top bars, $5 fish bowls, and $3 beer tubs (whatever they are). Can’t wait to parrrrtayyyy!

[This much fun, but without the New Years]

For the comments: Have you experienced the awesome that is Bert the Conqueror? What are your plans this weekend?

“I hate romance.”

Phew, it’s been a while. And by that I mean it’s been a week and half since I’ve written last which doesn’t seem all that long but by the standards I’ve been writing it’s been a little while.

Anyways. Quick updates!!

[1. We’z Workin]

The BF and I feel very grown up with our internships/jobs. We dress classy.

[2. Calzones]

I made homemade calzones!


I didn’t have flour or a rolling pin, sooooo I stretched the dough with my hands (and it stuck to everything).  Put on some mozzarella/ricotta cheese mix, pepperoni, and ham, and voila!


Cocoons of yummy.


The recipe made…a lot. 16 to be specific. All for just the BF and me!

[3. Greg Laswell]

The BF and I dressed up all fancy for the concert. Well I dressed up fancy, the BF was just smokin’.

DSC06504 We found the venue, which looked like this!

DSC06505For realzies. It was tiny. When all those tables filled up, there couldn’t have been more than 75 people in there. It was awesome.

DSC06520G. Lass!  It was a bangin’ concert. The BF and I were in love.

More on this in another post. His thoughts, in summary:
“I hate romance.”
