so what did i do today

i woke up at 11 a.m. today. that was nice. i love sleeping in. i love not working. etc. etc.

i tried on the dress today with everything on, and i can sit in it, so that’s awesome. there’s some weird wrrinkly stuff that’s going on, but i’ll deal with it.

i went to cold spring and paid off the cake.

i went to the reception place and figured out food. we’re having chicken! ooh la la. and a champagne toast. and hors d’euourves at 9:30 p.m.! yay!

and then i did homework. yuck!

so what am i doing tomorrow? cleaning, and class at 5 p.m.

thursday, i grocery shop and pick up the shoe rentals and hope the kilts get here. then i go to the cities and pick up branden (and i NEED to know the gate and teh terminal!!)

friday is a day of rest, i think. just greeting people who come and then the rehearsal and dinner.

sat. is the kicker. i won’t write about saturday. ๐Ÿ™‚


guess who has an interview!

yeah, that’s right, ME!


going in next tuesday after the wedding. i’ll probably take nate with me so he can look at the area and stuff and see if it looks like a good place to live.


ps – she asked me why i was looking for a new job, and i said something that indicated that the place was bought out, it’s been really slow, it’s a static industry, etc. she said, so you’re basically bored! well, you’ll never be bored here!



oh yeah, T -5 days!


i is excited!!! today is my last day of work for two weeks, and i’m actually doing something fun!!

so i think i mentioned how the company was bought out, and they were having someone make a logo. well, today i talked to lee, and he showed me the logos they made. they were boring and crappy. so he said, well, we want to see what you can come up with. YAY i heart making logos!!! so i went home, grabbed the laptop that has illustrator on it (illustrator is highly superior to photoshop when making logos), came back, and here i am, doing something i actually enjoy at work. amazing!

T -8 days. omg, now i’m getting nervous. i have to practice my lines. we have to memorize our vows, that’s gonna be no fun. ee ee ee ee ee ee eeeeeeeee.

i think i’m going to see HP and the GOF tonight. woohoo!

ok, i'll update

since i’m at work and have nothing else to do ๐Ÿ™‚

T -11 days.

last friday my sissies took me out for a bachelorette party and a good time was had by all. even me, and apparently i’m hard to find stuff to do for. (did that make sense at all??)

we went to eat at zeno’s, which has pretty darn good food in addition to most excellent desserts. mmmmmm. then we went to heartbreakers, a store where i almost bought a shirt and drooled over shoes that don’t come in my size. sad! stupid big feet. then we went to comedysportz, and improv comedy club type thingy, which was funny. i’d go back!

saturday i found awesome shoes. (this is more for liz.) i went to kohl’s in hopes of finding shoes like liz’s, and lo and behold, not only did they come in my size, my size was the only size left!! so i am a very happy camper. i wasn’t even looking for the style i bought, and i found it. awesome! i also bought some gauze-y, floaty pants for the groom’s dinner to wear with my new shoes (and a top i had purchased earlier).

and on saturday, i picked up my dress! jane came with, and she got to see me in full wedding regalia. i’m worried that the skirt might be hemmed a little too long, but i’ll just kick the skirt up, i guess. if anything, i’ll go find some shoes with a bigger heel.

and the alterations lady might have a little kitty for me! she has a tiny black kitten named Ty that she is holding onto for the moment, trying to find a home for it. i told her he would need a return policy (chasey is soooo territorial). so we’ll see what happens with that.

3 more days of work after today!!!!!!! i am sooo excited to take two weeks off. the fact that my wedding is in the middle of it is just frosting on the cake (cold spring bakery cake, that is! mmmm)


so it’s friday, which means it’s payday here at good old, or, *ahem*, excuse me, NEW midwest supply that i work for. it’s the first paycheck for the company. which, for some reason, means i get a pay decrease by 50ยข/hour, and i’m charged three times as much for health insurance.

FUN! i’m sooo excited to work for this awesome new company.


now for real, i’m looking outside the st. cloud area for jobs. i found one in mcgregor, mn (which is in “i’m going up north to my cabin” country) for a graphic artist starting at $40,000/year. it sounds decent, so i’m going to apply for it. i’m guessing, because it’s in mcgregor, which is pretty small (400 ppl) and kinda in the middle of nowhere (east/southeast of duluth by about 50 miles), they won’t have an overflowing amount of candidates for this job. i also looked up housing, and it’s pretty cheap.

ok, so let’s hope something comes of this. i can do long-distance school from SCSU, that’s no problem. cross your phalanges!!

why oh why

it’s january outside. the windchill yesterday was something like 3 degrees, and today it was 6 degrees when i went to work. oooh i hate cold, why so soon? not happy.

i only have 5 more days of this hole until i have two weeks off!! i’m excited. why am i more excited about missing work than my wedding? that’s kind of sad, but i’ll go with it.

not much else is new. i go in for my final dress fitting on saturday, going to the cities tomorrow for a bachelorette party, ummmmm, yeah, not much else. i’m boring right now. sorry!

ok ppl

i hate the blues.

i like jazz (well, the normal jazz. the really crazy stuff, eh, not so much).

there is a distinct difference. such as, i spent two semesters studying the blues, which i wasn’t a fan of to begin with. as for jazz, think charlie brown christmas music and nora jones. that’s the kind i like.

company sold

the company has been sold to a larger company called stockman’s, which is located in fargo.

i can’t find a website for these people, otherwise i’d post it. but i figure, one of two things will happen. we actually have to re-apply for our jobs here. i will be 1) eliminated as a job because the larger company most likely has a marketing department that does uniform stuff. or 2) i’ll stay on and do my own merry stuff like i used to. like i said, i can’t find a website, so i don’t know what they have for a marketing dept. up there.

ugh. i hope i at least can make it til my wedding w/this job. all i ask!

as an aside

to the previous entry. i talked to my mom about it after that happened. she says she’s seen “saying words” many times. her friend louise did it to her when she was young (and they knew no one mutually).

the mom says it may be weird the first time you witness it, but it’s really really weird the first time someone does it to you. my mom said it’s a result of when you’re not listening to what god wants you to do, s/he needs to send someone to shake some sense into you, basically. that would shake me up, someone telling me stuff that no one knows but myself or am even willing to admit to myself.

this weekend i’m going to see melissa and see if she’s ever seen anything like this.
