Thanks for the wine, employer.

Well, today we had a little send off for a client we will no longer be doing business with. I, being the vulture or left over food and drink that I am, took a barely touched bottle of yellow tail cabernet sauvingnon. Yum! Thanks employer.

Things have been kind of blech lately. I got a part time job because I'm brizzoke. And now I'll have money but no time to spend it. Oh well. I'll be working at Trader Joe's! Which will be nice, because I'll have a discount on food that I shouldn't be eating anyway. One particularly snarky coworker reminded me that people are "friendly" there and I am frequently "less than friendly." Whatever, customers can't expect to be treated nicely EVERYWHERE they go. Just kidding. Or am I?

I've also been very preoccupied by a long distance crush. Yes, you've read that correctly. Long distance. He lives no where near me, has no plans to move to Chicago, I'm not moving to him. He probably doesn't even like me. But I can't help feeling that there is a connection. I know I'm not giving many details, but it sucks feeling attracted to someone who literally lives in a different world than you.

Blech. Such is life.

Let's go to the beach tonight, with a bottle of wine.

It's been awhile. Whoops. I'm a bad blogger. I'm listening to the Office and blogging now. That's where tonight's title comes from. My love the Office.

I've fallen into a hole of work. It just doesn't end. Markets get reassigned, I have to transfer files, update my new records, follow up on old stuff, help other people... blech. Work. I'm strangely invigorated by it, though. Maybe I'm a big dork but I want to succeed at this. I started off not wanting to be in media at all and now I'm kind of hooked. Even though it's repetitive and can get boring and mind numbing, I find it interesting and important in successfully executing an advertising campaign. I think the advertising field is undergoing massive changes and I think GSD&M is trying to stay ahead of the curve on these changes. So, go us!

In other, more important news, I went to St. Louis two weeks ago for a wedding. Kim Belcher is now married to Ryan Pepple. They are very cute together and too attractive. And I hate them. Acutally that's a lie, I gave them money.

I stayed with Jason, who is now a double cancer survivor. It was great to see him and see him healthy. He's still healthier than I am. He ran a 5k, had breakfast and came back home before I even woke up. So, he's getting back to his old self. Which is great and I'm so proud of him for so fearlessly facing down cancer twice. Here's to Jason being in the clear for good.

Speaking of Jason, he came and visited this past weekend. I was working so much and had a cold and did not want to go out. I did see him some, not as much as I wanted to though. Still, it was nice to see a lot of Sweet Pea this month.

In bad news, my camera is acting the fool. It won't let me delete any pictures from the memory card or download them to my computer. And I've got some great pics that need to make it to my flickr. I'm sad about it. Hewlp.
