how absolutely amazing this week's Glee was.
i seriously had the BIGGEST smile on my face when the warblers sang, first of all. kurt's love interest is a CUTIE! the music was spot-on thru the whole episode, and altho there were a few parts i felt were a little... much... overall the storyline was really good. i do think that, realistically, kurt could get football dude on assault. he has witnesses - mr. shu saw the big football dude slam him into the locker, wth wouldn't he go to figgins & have him suspended? i mean, i'm sorry that you're struggling w/ your feelings & all, football dude, but bullying someone who is open is still NOT OKAY.
okay, i feel better after that mini-rant. *laugh*
today was a very good day. God has blessed me w/ amazing friends, and i am so THANKFUL! work was pretty smooth, not as productive as i would have liked, but there were some trickier issues to deal w/. got those taken care of, at least! for today! lol toni picked me up for lunch & we went to mama compton's. last year, or two years ago when toni was here last, mama compton's was just a hole in the wall restaurant. they've since moved into a larger space, and it's wonderful! they have ice cream, and deli food. i had a delicious roast beef on croissant, and some kickin krab & corn chowder. YUMMY! it was awesome to visit w/ toni & discuss her wedding (2012 now, instead of next summer, and it might be HERE instead of vegas, which would be cool). i love my dear sister-friend! i love that we have been friends for so long.
i got back to work a little early & so did some checkbook stuff before getting back to actual work. it was a quick-slow afternoon, if you know what i mean! lots to do & actually got a lot done, but the last 3 hours felt like the dragged.on.forever. lol
then it was time to go home! or, actually, to go to Borders & use the gift cards my aunt judy gave me last year for my birthday. yes, that's right. it took me a YEAR to use them! wth?! that is so unlike me. i used to be in the bookstore ALL the time! alas. tonight i noticed how much more expensive books have gotten in my "absence," tho! craziness!!! i did find a couple books, tho - and then i also got a zombie book for matthew for christmas. i hope he'll like it - it looks funny. i was going to send him the normal gift card, along w/ his blanket (teeheehee), but then i saw this. idk why it made me think of him!! he's not a zombie, nor do i know of any particular love he has for them. but, i read the back & it seemed like something he would get a kick out of. so, there you go. present logic by carrie. (please note, this logic is employed for most of my gift-buying jaunts. so, if and when you get a christmas present from me, if it seems like an odd choice for you, know that thought DOES go into my choices. *loveya!*)
after all the book buying, i was quite peckish & ready for dinner. thankfully, becca sent me a text about that time... oh yes, i also love that she & i have reconnected! facebook, thank you! : ) we met at texas roadhouse tonight for some eats, and oh what GOOD EATS they were! fried pickle chips, steak, baked potato, rolls w/ cinnamon butter... just to keep myself in check: i had 2 glasses of water w/ lemon, 1/2 my steak, 1/2 my baked potato, 2 rolls w/ very little butter... and MANY pickle chips. but we didn't eat the whole basket btwn the two of us, so i don't think either of us ate that many. : ) it was a very fun dinner, and i was invited to go shopping in chicago w/ becks, her sister & her mom in december. i say YAY! it's a craft fair, even! *bounce* excited!!!
when i got home, i called mom & we chatted for a bit. she brought up the idea of taking a road trip over christmas. i am intrigued - she mentioned disneyland - how close is disneyland to the ocean? because if i got to see vegas AND the ocean over christmas?? seriously, i would love it!!! : ) but, she's just thinking about it, she might change her mind & decide she doesn't want to drive all that way (27 hours to cali). i TOTALLY want to drive all that way. i'm already thinking of all the pictures i'd be taking!!! : ) : ) : )
i'll pray for wisdom on this decision.
annnnd. i watched Glee, of course, and then two episodes of The Good Wife. michael j fox guested on one ep. does everyone love MJF? i just wanna hug him! oh, speaking of - the boss is traveling to philly this week & i told him that if he runs into tony danza, he should give him my love. : ) i should have also told him to look out for postcards... shoot!
now, it's almost midnight & i still haven't read corey's latest blog post, which is about harry potter, and so i must head over there before hitting the hay. bret's not home yet & he's usually home about 10 or 11. hopefully he's alright!!
ttfn! tomorrow is thursday & mom & i are going to osaka for dinner to try it out. yay!!!
