So my new website is live, and dangit, people, go look at it! And send it to people who are getting married or who just got married!

Thank you.

Oooookay. Strange day at work.

I walk in, and my coworker says “did you cut your hair yesterday?” Um. No. I did not cut my hair at my desk, over my keyboard.

So I look at my keyboard and there is evidence of a haircut all over it. Ew. Ew. Ew. Someone broke into our offices last night….didn’t steal much, they seemed to leave behind more than they took. Grody.

Valentine’s Day fail.

So I think that I will never try to go out to eat on Valentine’s Day again. What a debacle! Not really, it wasn’t that bad. But we didn’t get to eat at Dick & Jenny’s because of the ridiculous wait (getting there at 6:15 only to be told we wouldn’t be seated until after 10? Um…no.) so we went to our old standby, Crescent City Brewhouse. Of course, it’s a nice choice for V-day as it’s meaningful for us (first date, engagement night, etc) but I was looking forward to something different. Ah well, it was nice. And also nice were the two dozen pink roses I was greeted with when I got home from work.

Awww!

Going to Baton Rouge this weekend…haven’t seen my mom in a while. Hope I don’t get a blow-out on the interstate. I have a plug in one tire keeping the nail hole from leaking. Hmm. I think friend Jon will be riding with me to Baton Rouge, though, so at least I won’t be the one changing the tire. Ha ha! Just kidding! Glad Jon doesn’t have internet access to read this. tee hee!

Happy Valentine’s Day.

For a special treat, I am providing a link to my Valentine’s Day post of 2002 – the last one when I was single. I think it’s great fun.

Tonight we’re going to Dick & Jenny’s, a restaurant I’ve been wanting to go to for a long time. Only problem is, they don’t take reservations, even for Valentine’s Day, so we may not eat until midnight or something crazy. But that’s okay. It’ll be worth it.

Not a terribly exciting weekend, except when I saw Paula. That was exciting. 🙂 (Oh, and we finally got our new bed, but I feel like it would be insulting to Paula if I said it was exciting too. Like she and a piece of furniture are equally exciting. The mattress set definitely wasn’t as exciting.)

Nothing much else to report. Blah.

Sorry I haven’t posted much lately. Not much to say, really. But am working on the imminent unveiling of my new site, www.pyjammydesign.com. Don’t you need something designed? A nice photo album? A nice party invitation? Something like that?

Mondays are always bad, but Mondays after a weekend trip are particularly bad. But it’s okay. It was a fabulously fun weekend, so I can’t complain.

After all the hoopla with Northwest “Sucky” Airlines on Thursday, my flight made it out on time. They’d better consider themselves VERY lucky this was the case. Hmmph. And I didn’t even get searched! Clearly, NWA employees don’t read my blog. Whew.

So on Friday, we looked at dresses. Kristina tried on lots of pretty dresses. Ohhhh, the pretty dresses! Also she has a honking large diamond. I forgot to mention that.

After all the dress looking and trying on, we waited for our dinner reservations in the bar of a nearby Macaroni Grill and drank their cheap red wine. Mmm. Then we made our way to the Melting Pot to meet my sister, Chris, and Anne for dinner. Ohhh, the fondue! Love the fondue. And more wine.

Saturday was a little more dress trying on, but not much. Following that was a visit to Anne’s v expensive condo and then lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Mmm. Lunch. Then there was IKEA (new lights!) and some grocery shopping. And more wine, back at Kristina’s house.

Sunday was lunch with our dear old friend Christian, who I haven’t seen in years. Was v good to see him. Thank goodness he hasn’t changed. I wish I was going to our friend Brett’s wedding later this month, but alas, I can’t make it. It’s going to be another mini-college reunion. Too bad. It’s Mardi Gras weekend, so flights are likely v expensive.

Then back to the airport to go home.

See, exciting!

So…angry….head….about..to..explode…..

Add NORTHWEST *#$&?~!@ AIRLINES to my list of companies I LOATHE!

Why is it so hard to get a HUMAN BEING on the phone? Why is so hard to get a REAL ANSWER to an email instead of a stock answer? DON’T YOU THINK, NORTHWEST AIRLINES, THAT IF I CAN NAVIGATE YOUR STUPID WEBSITE ENOUGH TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO EMAIL YOU A QUESTION, I CAN ALSO FIGURE OUT THE FLIGHT INFORMATION???

No…I want REAL information. Did it escape your notice that I asked about the NEW ORLEANS airport that was HIT BY A TORNADO??? DUH!!! I HATE YOU!!!!

(But please don’t take retalitory action until I get home safely on Sunday night. And I had BETTER be able to get out of town, you jerks.)
