your brain plays tricks on you when it is stressed and looking for relief …

I am one of those people that when stressed out will rant, cry, write a blog, cry some more, then eventually find something to look forward to and move on. All it really takes is something small and innocent (like a McGriddle) and I am happy. Well yesterday there were two things I was really looking forward to and both of them went sideways…

First of all, as you can see below, in pictures no less, I was looking forward to my Grey’s Anatomy (and Ugly Betty) night. Um hello, stoopid. Yesterday was Wednesday, which means TODAY is Thursday (Grey’s Anatomy night) and that means today is not Friday (obviously) … you get the picture …

This was yesterday’s plan. Woke up in the morning. Got excited when I saw an overdue movie sitting on my speaker. Why you ask? The cute boy that owns the neighbourhood Indie movie store.

… I’ll take the movie to work, go home the Main Street way so that I can return my movie and have him ‘help’ me find another one. And yes, I CAN flirt. =) I just look and act stupid doing it. I’m sure he hasn’t noticed that I’ve rented every season of the LWord (twice!).

Ok, I know what you’re thinking… cute guy that owns the store… well, yes it can happen… every once in awhile a cute guy catches my eye… its more about the ‘nice’ guy factor in him … anyways, Jen, maybe you should meet him???? Anyways, moving on … I get there, full flirt on and in the ready, new glasses, lipglossed and he was … not … there. Ugh. I am so glad I didn’t waste a spritz of my MAC perfume for the occasion!

Almost kept the movie another night. But I’m not quite that much of a loser yet.

Not all is lost. Grey’s ANATOMY!

I get home, have a shower, get the jammies on, get some toast and Cheerios, watch Coronation Street (I saw that eye roll!) and get all settled in to see that dumb blond girl (or Dr. Grey) somebody… anybody finally die on Grey’s Anatomy …


Sad, sad evening for Kelly. Did laundry and fell asleep. Had some VERY odd dreams: One about Aloe Vera plants and one about Chico’s friend Cindy’s sister Sabrina … and no, the two dreams were unrelated… =)


I have decided to beg the wonderful lawyers I work for to let me take one of my holiday days from LAST year tomorrow (I really should get out of the country more – or at least the province) and will spend the day tomorrow stalking the movie store owner.

Ha, just kidding. It will be a ‘me’ day if I can get it:

Visit my eyebrow wax girl.
Have a nice brunch somewhere.
Go for a run and maybe the gym.
Eat bonbons and watch Ellen.

    I think they that they should bring grey back to life and then as a group decide to kill her again.

    Enjoy your day off girlfriend! I wish I could take it with you as I can imagine all the trouble we’d get in to, not to mention all the blog worty stuff we’d have to write about later.

    Thanks for clearing up the cute boy thing… I was all confused for a minute there. I guess it can go both ways and still be normal huh? Cus I think you and Dooce are hotties in the same way that you find your video guy attractive.
