*bounce* SO EXCITED!
so, today was a pretty good day, first of all. work went well, my meetings went well. okay, my first meeting went well, my second meeting was a little weird. i'd set up a conference room for the onsite ppl & then had a call-in number for the canada ppl. except everyone called in, so it was just me in this big ol' conference room on the phone. if i'd known the other on-site ppl weren't going to attend IN PERSON, i could have called from the comfort of my desk! yeesh. i wasn't really upset, tho, just mildly annoyed. *laugh* and the content of the meeting went well, so i guess that's the important thing?
i totally forgot my leftover spinach chicken salad in the fridge today at lunch & ended up w/ a shrimp & veggie bowl from the caf. whoops. and i'm pretty sure my salad isn't going to be edible tomorrow for lunch, but i'll check it out before throwing it away...maybe i can pick out the chicken & cranberries at least... we'll see!
my wall-mate is on vacation tomorrow & friday, so she gets a 5 day weekend! lucky! lol i took tuesday off, so i will have a 4 day weekend. hooray! long weekends rock! : )
trish is going camping again this weekend & leaving tomorrow. stupid camping season. *grumble* *laugh* she said i shouldn't grumble about it since it's something she LOVES, so i will say i hope she has lots of fun! : )
after work, i met mom & the boys at chili's for dinner. i had a coupon for a free appetizer that expired today. heh. it was tasty, tasty dinner! and fun to hang out w/ anthony for a little bit. and leyton, of course, but i felt like i hadn't really seen anthony in awhile, so ya know! AND he was in a good mood, not teenager mood, but a really good mood, so it was super nice!
after dinner, i went across the parking lot to the old borders, which is now a BAM! or books a million.
*sound of harps, laughter, every good thing in the universe*
dude, why have i not been in this store before?!?! oh my goodness, the prices!! *swoon* the prices - i got both the 2nd & 3rd volumes of the Night World omnibus for a total of $7.43. SEVEN FORTY-THREE!!!!! these are $10 books, ppl! *bouuuunnnnce* seriously, when i saw the price i about fell over. i was so, so, Sooooo excited! !!! : ) i can't wait to go back when i have money for a real book splurge... : )
anywhoo, so i came home & dove right in to the first story of volume 2, Dark Angel. it's really different than the first 3 stories, and i can't decide if i like it or not, but i like it. that makes sense in my head. i like the writing, i'm just not sure i'm going to like where the story goes. meh, that makes a little more sense. LOL
so, i've read thru the new blogs that have been posted & now i'm off to get lost in the story again.
what're you reading lately?
oh!!! P.S. - River Takoda was born today, to my dear friends tina & tony! CONGRATULATIONS to the new parents!!! : )
