Random's Manifest - Thursday Thoughts

Back home from Disney, and in the office.  Figured, what better time for some RANDOM THOUGHTS??


Moving Day 
No, not from my house.  From the office.  We're moving from our holding space in the 'hood to our new, beautiful building Uptown.  As glad as I will be to say goodbye to the rif-raff around here, I am not looking forward to the longer commute and expensive parking.  Nor am I terribly thrilled about the "Workplace of the Future", in which my cubicle will be out in the middle of everything, and all of my doings will be everyone's business.  I'll have to figure out a way to hide my blogging breaks from the masses... 

We're in the midst of packing right now, and this place looks like World War III at the moment.  Awesome.  I kinda like it for some reason.  First, it's an opportunity to purge and get reorganized which, contrary to popular belief (based on the chaotic state of my house), is actually one of my favorite things.  As disastrous as my home might be, my workspace is psychotically organized, albeit cluttered.  Now, I can reorganize my organization, and de-clutter at the same time!  What could be better??  Yay!  Second, it's a little invigorating to have everyone working together to get stuff done.  We're normally kind of on our own, and we don't interact much.  But, when we're all having to clean and pack and organize, we have to all just get along.  It's a complete wreck at the moment though.   I am going to try to take a picture of this nightmare to post for you guys.  I know you'd positively LOVE to see our mess.  :) 

Strange That Glee Makes Me Cry.  And ALMOST like Lady GaGa... 
I've cried the last three episodes.  A good cry though, I suppose.  Tuesday's season finale was awesome, but I am absolutely devastated to see it go for the summer. I will miss it so!  I'm listening to the soundtrack from the episode as I type.  Outstanding stuff.  If you haven't already, download it NOW.  

Here's a sampling: 

I was also shockingly pleased with the Lady GaGa episode.  As aforementioned, I am not a GaGa fan, but I gotta say, I LOVE Bad Romance now.  But, not her version still.  This version: 

Rachel and her surprise mom also do a pretty great version of Poker Face.  When you check out the soundtrack from the season finale, look into that, too.  You won't be sorry.

eShakti, have a sale already!
The online clothier bombards me with daily emails showcasing their beautiful summer dresses, but not since I made my first purchase (see this edition of Random Thoughts: http://stolensentiments.blogspot.com/2010/02/randoms-manifest.html) have they offered any deals!  There are so many cute things I want from this store, including these: 
Color block trim shirtdressKnot tied front cotton dressFloral medallion halter dress

Don't they know that if they just lowered the prices a smidgen, I'd order again?  Sigh... 

Ok, so I'm not the best at keeping my resolutions...
Remember when May was going to be a great month for new beginnings?  (see: Brand New May)  Yeah, so, not so much...  

Haven't done Weight Watchers at all and, in fact, have gained quite a bit.  That is the direct result of the work project from hell, though.  Things are quieting down a little, so I need to get back in the groove.  I can't cross back over into the bad place.  I just can't.  

Along that same vein, I haven't worked out in literally MONTHS.  Unless you count walking around the theme parks, which, I don't.  That has to change.  I feel like hell right now, so I need to get off my once again fat ass and MOVE.  Doc said I'm at risk for blood clots if I don't.  That should seriously scare me straight, but as of yet, it hasn't.  Maybe I'll get on the elliptical when I get out of here today.  Maybe... 

Some other resolutions I made in the past: 

  • Watch all 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (again)
  • Read at least 3 books/month
  • Pass the CPA exam and the Bar
  • Join a book club
  • Get in shape
  • Meet my future husband

Hmm... Well, I did do the first one.  Yep.  ALL SEVEN.  And, I remember why it's my favorite show of all time.  As for the second item, although I've still been reading a lot, I haven't kept to my 3 book/month rule.  Just too busy.  For number three - I did in fact fail the CPA exam yet again.  Scheduled to retake it on July 3.  I really need to not make the same mistake for the bar.  I am starting that study plan TONIGHT.  Fourth, no book club.  Haven't found one, and don't have enough hours in the day.  Maybe that'll change soon, though.  Fifth, YEAH RIGHT!  We just had that conversation.  Last - not yet.  Still waiting for him, it seems... 

Another Bloggy Award!!! 
In the midst of my utter madness (aka getting that application done), I received a lovely blogger award from Donda at: http://www.dailylifewithbipolar.blogspot.com/?zx=adaafc79cc2a3242

(Don't get discouraged if a Blogger warning pops up - there's no dangerous content in her great blog - just real life tales of living with Bi-Polar disorder.  Accept the warning and enter.  That's an order.)  

Thank you Donda, for the award!  I appreciate it!  I promise I will pay it forward and fulfill my award requirements soon. 

That kid's got some problems. 
My name is Kristen, and I'm addicted to some REALLY bad TV.  Including some shows geared towards tween-age girls.  There.  I admit it.  I am ashamed.  I will not go into greater detail than that, but I will share with you a video made for one of the horrible, horrible half hours of crap I ingest with my eyes.  It's a great song and a pretty cool concept, if you ask me.  Enjoy!

And with that, I bid you adieu.  Off to finish packing my junk and then I'm getting out of here early.  Gonna work from home and maybe exercise.  I'll keep you posted on my progress (or lack thereof).  

Have a fabu day!

I actually watched/ listened to two of the three of these; I followed youtube links for once! I'm so proud of myself when I do that. Anyway. I want the VIDEO for the Bad Romance number!
I guess I need to watch the actual program, sigh. But if it's out there, (lazy) media-consuming minds want to see!
