i'd hoped to be watching w/ mom, or april, or nicki, or someone! lol ah well. the ppl in the chat room keep me company, except they are all mean about jordan, and i love jordan!
anywhoo... i wrote this earlier, but then my post went in a different direction...
Hola! Como estas? Today I got some lovely Spanish lessons from a nice lady in Mexico. We were emailing back & forth about a photo for our online directory, and she thanked me for my help. I emailed back “de nada” which idk if that is still “in fashion” as the way to say *you're welcome* or if that’s just from 1993 spanish class! LOL But she IM’d me & we had a mini-Spanish convo. I really enjoyed it! and I kept the convo so I can maybe actually LEARN the new words/phrases. I would really love to be able to read more espanol! J
i get really nervous speaking spanish to native speakers, tho. i don't want to offend them w/ my ignorance. this gal, tho, was really sweet & seemed to "get" that i wanted to learn, ya know? and then she called me, tho, and i was nervous all over again! if i don't think about it, my pronunciation is pretty good. but as soon as i think about it, my southern accent comes out & it sounds weird!!
We had a cookout for lunch – brats, burgers, mmmmm! I love autumn! Next week when I get groceries, I need to check & see if Carnation’s Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer has been put out yet. I can bring it to work & make my own pumpkin spice lattes… I love Starbuck’s, but I gotta SAVE SAVE SAVE if I want to have a shot at my birthday plans! Jmmmm now i want starbucks. LOL thank God for free coffee at work. i've been drinking a lot of it, trying to stave off the urge to spend $5 at the bucks or the panera (good coffee there, too!).
what else? excited to hang out w/ leyton tomorrow & sarah & andrew on saturday! : ) tomorrow i have a meeting in the morning & then only like an hour or two to get some work done before heading out. i'll have a couple hours to watch something, i think, and then leyton time! : ) speaking of, here's a cute picture from tuesday...
i got my century link bill today & despite all mary's wonderful help - billing messed up, and has my modem as leased. :| i sent them all a note & hopefully we'll get it straightened out w/o any fuss! everything else on the bill looked beautiful, tho! : )
also in the mail today, two lovely postcards, from belgium & the netherlands. hooray!!
after bb, i'm going to watch AGT & then try to get to bed by 11:30. at least, i hope... my screen has been acting up! oye. *laugh*
hope your thursday went well & that your friday is AWESOME! :)
